  • Law to ban 'upskirting' photos blocked by 1 lawmaker in UK

    A law that would make it a criminal offense in the U.K. to take "upskirting" photos was blocked Friday in Parliament despite receiving backing from the British government. The initiative was stopped by a single Conservative Party legislator who objected when the bill was put forward in the House of Commons. Some lawmakers who supported the measure shouted "shame" after Christopher Chope singlehandedly thwarted the proposal simply by shouting "Object!" Parliamentary rules make it hard for bills introduced by backbench lawmakers, rather than the government, to make progress. They can be halted by an objection from one lawmaker. Upskirting involves...

    On Sunday, YouTuber Callum Long-Collins announced he would be effectively shutting down the channel EnglishShooting, a YouTube channel that racked up more than 15,000 subscribers and more than 12 million views in the past four years. Long-Collins said the police had marked his YouTube channel as a "forum of extremism," and that he had to "show the police that I am a fit character to own firearms within the U.K.""I was told that due to repeated comments from other people on the videos [police] felt that the channel was a forum of extremism and it was promoting views that were...

    Tommy Robinson is a UK activist who was recently arrested and jailed for livestreaming in a public street about a muslim rape gang court case. He has long been exposing the extent of rape gangs in the UK, and the UK establishment has long harassed him for it. It has just been revealed that he has been moved from Hull prison to another prison with a higher concentration of muslims, who have been shouting death threats. This decision came from the UK Home Office. From what I've heard, the new prison is an open prison. Paul Joseph Watson on twitter:...

    Prince William will sit down for talks with the Israeli prime minister and the Palestinian president during his historic visit to the Middle East. William will also visit Jordan, and the capital Amman where his wife the Duchess of Cambridge lived from May 1984 until September 1986. 'The non-political nature of His Royal Highness's role – in common with all Royal visits overseas –allows a spotlight to be brought to bear on the people of the region: their cultures, their young people, their aspirations, and their experiences.' The palace said his 'goal' is to meet as 'many people from as...

    U.K. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said on Thursday that he is growing to admire President Trump, saying there is a "method in his madness." “I am increasingly admiring of Donald Trump,” Johnson said in a leaked audio excerpt from an appearance at the Institute of Directors in London, obtained by BuzzFeed News. “I have become more and more convinced that there is method in his madness," he continued. “Imagine Trump doing Brexit. He’d go in bloody hard… There’d be all sorts of breakdowns, all sorts of chaos. Everyone would think he’d gone mad. But actually, you might get somewhere. It’s...

    Peter Strzok, who was pulled off Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigative team last year, played a more central role than previously known in both the Russia and Hillary Clinton email probes, a lawmaker familiar with the matter told Fox News Tuesday. The lawmaker's assessment of Strzok's role in both investigations was based on the most recent records and testimony, including a closed-door interview with FBI espionage chief Bill Priestap. Priestap was interviewed Tuesday as part of an ongoing joint investigation by the House Judiciary and Oversight committees. Priestap was Strzok's supervisor and oversaw both the Russia and Clinton investigations. The...

French Minister of Armed Forces Florence Parly and British Secretary of State for Defence Gavin Williamson made this statement at the Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore over the weekend. In her speech during the plenary session of the defense summit, Parly relayed France's support for a code of conduct in the South China Sea that...

    London's Southwark Cathedral hosted its second annual "Grand Iftar Service" on Sunday evening, marking the anniversary of the London Bridge terror attack last year. In addition to the 11 a.m. Eucharist service, the church also held a 3 p.m. Service of Commemoration for the attack, and an 8 p.m. service to celebrate the Muslim service. The Iftar service stood out, however, as it marked the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. It has not yet been reported whether or not the prayers associated with Ramadan were performed inside the cathedral, which would be a serious violation of Christian holy space. Hosting...

    [snip] Tommy Robinson was arrested on 25 May outside Leeds Crown Court after using social media to broadcast details of an ongoing trial which was subject to reporting restrictions. He was arrested, brought before a judge, and sentenced within five hours. The judge ordered a media ban on his arrest and imprisonment, even forcing British publications to delete their articles about the case. Such measures are common practice in North Korea and Saudi Arabia. It is sad to see how Britain, the cradle of Western democracy and the rule of law, is fast descending into tyranny. Following massive protests on...

    The industry body UK Steel said that, with exports to America worth half a billion dollars a year, producers in Britain would be “hit hard”. Employees at the giant Port Talbot steelworks in Wales have described the move as “another body blow.” Mark Turner, who works at Tata, the company that owns the Welsh steelworks, said there is a major worry that the UK steel market will become saturated if other countries subject to the charges end up “dumping” their steel into Britain, pushing prices down. He added: “Our biggest concern is dumping. The American markets are going to be...
  • Could Constitutional Monarchies be Important Aids to Democracies?

    05/29/2018 7:15:04 PM PDT · by CondoleezzaProtege · 30 replies
    Recently, author and speechwriter Don Watson has questioned the impetus for Australia to become a republic. In the April edition of The Monthly, he wrote: In a world filling with tyrants, Queen Elizabeth and her descendants represent a sort of anti-tyranny. He goes on to note: Our democracy works imperfectly well, and it is hard to see how any of its practical imperfections would be remedied by going republican. In effect, the governor-general, who is appointed by the elected government, acts as a de facto ceremonial head of state, while we maintain the pretence that Elizabeth is the sovereign. Like...

    Attacks on small businesses by vegan activists are on the rise, according to the Countryside Alliance. Death threats, stoked by social media and encouraged by international groups of activists, have caused butchers and farmers to “live in fear.” Marlow Butchers, in, Ashford, Kent, was targeted earlier this month by activists who daubed red paint on the doors and windows of the shop. Since then, the business has been subjected to online abuse. Wayne Marlow, who runs the business with his father and brother, told Kent Online: “On the internet, it has been very threatening. It has got ridiculous — activists...

    Britain’s leaders are facing increasing calls to take action to loosen abortion restrictions in Northern Ireland after the Republic of Ireland’s landmark referendum in favor of doing so, but complex political realities may make quick action difficult. Prime Minister Theresa May is being asked by some legislators and activists to take steps that might lead to liberalization in Northern Ireland now that Ireland has voted overwhelmingly to repeal its constitutional ban. Once new laws are put in place by Ireland’s parliament, Northern Ireland would be the only region in the U.K. and Ireland to ban abortions. Its strict law prohibits...

    The first woman to join an infantry regiment since defence chiefs lifted a ban on females serving in combat units has quit after just two weeks of training, The Mail on Sunday can reveal. The recruit dropped out of an 18-week course this month after falling behind her male counterparts on endurance marches and failing other physical tests at a training base in Suffolk. It is understood that when the woman resigned, she admitted having underestimated the physical requirements of being an infantry recruit. She also told officers that living in female-only accommodation made her feel ‘like an outsider’ and...

    Hawaii isn't the only place where the earth is rumbling and emitting dangerous gasses and hot lava. The boiling of the prophetic lava is now reaching the point that eruptions are inevitable. With the 70th Anniversary of the re-establishment of the State of Jerusalem, the Christ of the Checkpoint conference (where the speakers loathe the Jewish people), the violence in the Gaza Strip and the forces gathering around Israel, it's just a matter of time before everything blows. This week's update also features a live audio interview with Brian Schrauger of the Chaim Report (www.jerusalemjournal.net) to discuss issues from the...

    Justice is very swift in Britain these days. At least for right wingers: Tommy Robinson was arrested Friday and immediately sentenced to 13 months in jail.  Tommy’s crime? Reporting while White. He was livestreaming on Facebook outside of a Leeds court hearing on a gang accused of forcing young  girls into the sex trade, euphemistically known in Britain as “grooming.” Apparently that’s illegal in England - reporting on a crime committed by Muslims that is, not “grooming.” Anti-Islam activist Tommy Robinson was arrested Friday [May 25] outside of a British court hearing on a gang accused of forcing women into...
