    The plan, drawn up by a small group of ministers, chiefs of staff and top civil servants, would have involved calling an emergency parliamentary session to discuss the “national crisis and outbreaks of violence” a Le Pen victory was expected to provoke, following horrific violence against police officers by Left-wing antifa groups when she qualified for the second round. “The country would have come to a halt and the government would have just one priority, assuring the security of the state,” claimed one of the L’Obs sources. The populist politician would not have been allowed to appoint a new prime...

    The blogger behind incredible claims that the FBI had a warrant to examine the Trump campaign's communications is facing serious questions about her legitimacy after making a series of conspiracy-theory claims about elaborate Russian plots that appear to have little basis in reality. Louise Mensch is a British politician turned New York blogger who reported on the website Heat Street that the FBI was granted a FISA court warrant to access communications made by Trump's team during the presidential campaign.

    LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservative Party has an 18 percentage point lead over the main opposition Labor Party, implying a majority of at least 132 seats in a June 8 national election, according to an ICM poll for the Sun on Sunday. The Conservatives were at 46 percent, down one percentage point, against Labor on an unchanged 28 percent, the paper said.
  • Byron York: Senate committee targets FBI No. 2 in Trump dossier probe

    Sen. Charles Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has sent a letter to FBI Director James Comey demanding the story behind the FBI's reported plan to pay the author of a lurid and unsubstantiated dossier on candidate Donald Trump. In particular, Grassley appears to be zeroing in on the FBI's deputy director, Andrew McCabe, indicating Senate investigators want to learn more about McCabe's role in a key aspect of the Trump-Russia affair. Grassley began his investigation after the Washington Post reported on February 28 that the FBI, "a few weeks before the election," agreed to pay former British spy...

    Ah Washington Post, you've done it again. Here you have a legitimate, under-reported story, and you manage to find a way to drop in some good old fashioned radical left wing bias. From your 6/21 edition: The No. 1 trending question related to Donald Trump on Google right now is "Who tried to shoot Trump?" Which means a lot of people don't know the answer. Which is probably because the assassination attempt on the presumptive Republican presidential nominee hasn't been covered as a major news story. The answer, authorities say, is Michael Steven Sandford, a 20-year-old British citizen who...

    Authorities in Las Vegas arrested a 19-year-old man after he allegedly tried to disarm a police officer at the Donald Trump presidential rally. Fox News: Las Vegas Metro police said Michael Sanford approached a uniformed officer and started a conversation looking to get an autograph. Minutes into the conversation, Sanford attempted to disarm the officer, police said. Authorities said officers assigned to the rally were able to take Sanford into custody with little disruption at the venue. No other incidents or injuries were reported.

    Michael Sandford stopped calling his mother last May. He was in a foreign country, unemployed and living out of a car, but he had a plan. He had learned how to shoot a gun. He wanted to kill Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. The autistic 20-year-old British man set out from California at about the same time his mother, Lynne, reported him as missing. In June, Sandford showed up at a Trump rally in Las Vegas. As the candidate spoke before a raucous crowd, the Briton moved close to the stage. He noticed a holstered gun strapped to a policeman's...

    On #StarWarsDay, discover the original inspiration of "May the Force be with you." According to author Alan Arnold, in 1979 “Margaret Thatcher … won the election and became Britain’s first woman prime minister. To celebrate their victory her party took a half page of advertising space in the London Evening News. This message, referring to the day of victory, was ‘May the Fourth Be With You, Maggie. Congratulations.'”This resulted in a yearly fan tradition of calling May 4 “Star Wars Day” or “May the Fourth be With You Day,” in reference to the Jedi phrase used in the movies,...

    Ahead of a highly anticipated Senate hearing later this week, FBI Director James Comey is being accused of making inconsistent statements about the bureau’s relationship with Christopher Steele, the ex-British spy behind the Trump dossier. Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, made the allegation in a letter sent to Comey on Friday. “There appear to be material inconsistencies between the description of the FBI’s relationship with Mr. Steele that you did provide in your briefing and information contained in Justice Department documents made available to the Committee only after the briefing,” Grassley wrote to Comey....

    LONDON — In 2015, Britain’s Labour Party tacked to the left, repudiating the middle-way philosophy that had won it three elections under Tony Blair. Voters responded by handing the party its worst defeat in three decades. Rather than scramble back toward the center, Labour lurched further left. The party elected as its leader Jeremy Corbyn, a white-bearded baby boomer from the back benches who, like Bernie Sanders in the United States, ignited an improbable movement among young activists with his attacks on the rigged capitalist system and unquestioned fidelity to socialist ideals. Now, with less than six weeks to go...

    John McDonnell tried to weaken our cash-strapped military by allowing taxpayers to 'opt out' of helping to fund them, it has been revealed. Records from the House of Commons show that in 2014 the Shadow Chancellor proposed a motion to allow voters direct the portion of their income tax that goes towards defence into a 'non-military security fund'. In 1999 the longtime Corbyn ally tried to change the law so taxpayers could divert the money spent on defence into foreign aid. Armed Forces minister Mike Penning told the Sun: 'Security would be at risk with John McDonnell holding the purse...

    Most counterterrorism operations take place below the radar. Across the western world, terror cells are busted up and networks disrupted as raids lead to arrests. They are rarely publicized beyond terse statements to the media giving the bare bones outline of the operation. But on Friday, British counterterrorism units broke up two terrorist plots on the same day, highlighting the constant struggle of officials to keep their citizens safe. And one UK official made the extraordinary statement that raids were being conducted "almost daily" and that authorities believed there were between 6-10,000 potential terrorists in the country. Breitbart: "I...

    In possibly the most bizarre behavior that many of us are likely to see from a supposed Democratic government, a Government official has asked Facebook to begin taking down “Fake News” faster and faster because people who use it as a news source “might be misled”. Chairman of the Commons culture, media and sport select committee, Damian Collins suggested that this Fake News could pose a Threat to the “the integrity of democracy”. He cited as his motivating factor the recent events in the US election (as reported in the Guardian): “The risk is what happened in America,the top 20...

    We have all heard the arguments and the figures relating to the benefits of mass-immigration from poorer countries to richer countries. The advocates have shown us “irrefutable figures” that detail the economic benefits; they have berated us for our lack of morality. And the sad truth is, the argument can never be won by throwing statistics and numbers back at them. Because numbers, as they know all too well, can be interpreted almost any way you wish. The only way to win is to show up their arguments for what they really are: weak veils for an agenda that is...

    Nigel Farage’s party, UKIP, are going into the UK General Election on June 8th focusing on an “Integration Strategy”. The third party of British politics will be asking voters to back policies that even just a few years ago would have been dismissed out of hand. New UKIP leader, Paul Nuttall, will be leading the charge to deal with mass Islamic immigration by ensuring that British Muslims and new arrivals will be fully integrated into British society. Here are their four lead policies: Sharia Law Despite having no formal or legal rights in Britain, Sharia Courts do operate in heavily...

In fact, a new survey of people in the United Kingdom finds not only do about 20 percent of people not know how to change a bulb — the same number aren’t sure how to boil an egg, either.

    Sometimes a woman's deepest thoughts are best left unsaid, but the Princess Royal has never regretted once describing herself as 'not everyone's idea of a fairytale princess'. It was a deliberate message and the moment she laid the ground rules for her life as a professional royal. But everyone knew what she was getting at all those years ago. In a celebrity-besotted world inhabited by pretty people endlessly proclaiming the message that physical beauty brings instant happiness, Anne was having to deal with being a real princess who is not blessed with chocolate-box prettiness.
