    Kim turns on Britain! Furious North Korea calls UK soldiers "mercenaries" for joining huge American-led military drill Forces from the UK and Australia are helping 70,000 American and South Korean troops prepare for a nuclear strike - but they have been labelled "war maniacs" North Korea despot Kim Jong-un has labelled British Army soldiers nothing more than "mercenaries" after they took part in US-led military drills. Dramatic images yesterday showed armed forces playing out a mock terror drill in South Korea - brandishing guns and wearing biohazard suits. It's since emerged that soldiers from the UK and Australia are helping...

    British drivers will face extra checks when renting cars and vans to ensure they are not extremists in the wake of a string of deadly terror attacks using vehicles. Ministers are ordering the crackdown amid growing concern over how easily extremists are renting vehicles and using them to mow down pedestrians in attacks. It comes after 14 people were killed when terrorists ploughed into passersby in Barcelona and seaside town of Cambrils on Thursday. This year in the UK, vehicles have been at the centre of deadly attacks on Westminster, London Bridge and Finsbury Park. The incidents sparked suggestions van...

    ASIAN RAPE gangs who target white teenagers are not handed longer jail sentences because of political correctness and fear among the judiciary, the Government’s senior legal advisor has said. Young, white girls have been brutally raped and sexually abused by extensive gangs of Asian men in towns and cities across Britain - yet when it comes to sentencing - the race aspect has been largely ignored, he claimed. Now legal experts are calling for British judges to properly defend the girls who are targeted because of their skin colour. The claims followed a horrific court case in Newcastle this week...

    The UK is likely to face an Islamist terrorist threat for the next 30 years, the former head of MI5 has warned. Jonathan Evans, who stepped down as director general of the spy agency in 2013, described the threat as a “generational problem” which will take decades to tackle. Lord Evans also claimed the Westminster Bridge attack earlier this year may have had an energising effect on extremists. Meanwhile, he said he would be “very surprised” if Russia had not tried to interfere in the UK's last general election. Lord Evans, who now sits in the House of Lords as...

    Seventeen men and one woman were found guilty of a host of sexual crimes against young women – many of them children – after a massive “grooming gang” was uncovered in Newcastle, England. The gang, made up of mostly Muslim Middle Easterners and South Asians (commonly referred to as just “Asian” in the U.K.) preyed upon white British girls, plying them with alcohol, marijuana, mephedrone and other drugs. The victims of sexual abuse were between the ages of 13 and 25. They were drugged unconscious and then raped or pressured into sex through physical or emotional abuse. According to the...

    A small British firm based in south Wales had secured a contract to provide security for American diplomatic facilities in Benghazi despite having only a few months experience in the country. Sources have told the Daily Telegraph that just five unarmed locally hired Libyans were placed on duty at the compound on eight-hour shifts under a deal that fell outside the State Department's global security contracting system. Blue Mountain, the Camarthen firm that won a $387,000 (£241,000) one year contract from the US State Department to protect the compound in May, sent just one British employee, recruited from the celebrity...

    One of Britain’s most famous transgender personalities is swapping genders for the third time in eight years. Brad Cooper became the U.K.’s youngest person to undergo a gender swap at only 15 years old, when he claimed he believed he was a girl stuck in a boy’s body. Doctors began pumping Brad’s body full of hormone therapy to stop puberty and trigger breast growth, sparking a widespread debate on whether 15 was too young for a person to make such a life-altering medical decision. Turns out that it just might be. According to a profile in the U.K. Mirror, the...

    A burns surgeon who treats many acid attack victims coming out of East London has suggested that the proliferation of such crimes is now at epidemic levels. Dr Martin Niall, a burn surgeon at Mid-Essex Hospital, told National Public Radio (NPR) in the U.S. that acid attacks in Britain “are now at levels that one of my colleagues described as epidemic”. He added: “Everyone, ourselves included, has been shocked by this emerging threat to public health.” In terms of attacks per head of population, London is now the acid attack capital of the world, with a 74 per cent rise...

    Ken Livingstone, a former mayor of London, has blamed the turmoil in Venezuela on Hugo Chávez’s unwillingness to execute “oligarchs” after he came to power. ... “One of the things that Chávez did when he came to power, he didn’t kill all the oligarchs. There was about 200 families who controlled about 80% of the wealth in Venezuela,” Livingstone told Talk Radio. “He allowed them to live, to carry on. I suspect a lot of them are using their power and control over imports and exports to make it difficult and to undermine Maduro.”

    American Thinker ^ | 08/01/2017 | Daren Jonescu
    A beneficial side effect of the horrible Charlie Gard case is that it is the kind of story that forces anyone who wishes to talk about it to define himself, whether openly or implicitly, on certain fundamental issues: self-ownership vs. socialism, the private family vs. state, and the principled defense of individual liberty vs. progressive pragmatism. One of the more predictable and amusing aspects of this moment of self-revelation is the hatred and invective which the defenders of socialism, state, and pragmatism -- which in this case means state ownership and disposal of the individual human being -- spew...

    Associated Press ^ | Jul 30, 2017 8:11 AM EDT
    Scotland has called for Scotch to be defined in U.K. law so its vital whisky industry can be protected after Brexit. Scottish Economy Secretary Keith Brown has written to officials asking for strong legal protections for the industry, which is worth around £4 billion ($5.3 billion) in exports. A European Union definition of whisky currently protects sales from substandard products — but EU laws will no longer apply to Britain after the country exits the bloc in 2019. …

    Molly seemed like a perfectly normal female pup at first. It was only when she started taking walks outside that we noticed unusual behaviour The death of our collie Bonnie in 2006 hit my husband Frank and me so hard that it was almost a decade before we considered taking on another dog. But, late in 2015, my daughter mentioned that a friend of hers had a jack russell that was about to have pups. Familiar with female dogs, we decided that if there were any bitches in the litter we would take one. That’s how we ended up with...

    The firm behind the salacious and unsubstantiated Trump dossier is refusing to to cooperate with the Senate Judiciary Committee's request to provide documentation or respond to questions sent from the committee in March about the clients who paid for the dossier that launched the investigation into the administration and its alleged Russian connections. The Republican Chairman of the committee, Senator Charles Grassley, warned Fusion GPS, the firm that compiled the dossier, in March about its obligation "to provide details on the history of the dossier" including the clients who paid for it. The committee also wanted information on Christopher Steele,...

    "The whole system failed and that is what has been happening for the last 30 years. And it is PC. People are just too, too afraid to, you know, just too, too afraid to speak the truth." — Mohan Singh, founder of the Sikh Awareness Society. MI5, Britain's domestic security agency, revealed that it has identified 23,000 jihadist extremists living in the country. Manchester bomber Salman Abedi used taxpayer-funded student loans and benefits to bankroll the terror plot, according to the Telegraph. Abedi is believed to have received thousands of pounds in state funding in the run-up to the attack...

    A gang of Muslim men rampaged through Liverpool city centre attacking strangers because they were white “non-Muslims”. One witness feared Amin Mohmed, Mohammed Patel and Faruq Patel were ISIS terrorists. The drunken yobs targeted three unknown men before Mohmed, 24, and Mohammed, 20, set upon Gary Bohanna when he revealed he was Christian. Laughing Faruq, 19, who was not convicted of a racial or religious motive, then filmed Mohmed punching St Helens councillor Paul Lynch to the ground, as his terrified girlfriend tried to protect him. Liverpool Crown Court heard counter-terrorism officers raided the three men’s homes in Bolton after...

    During London’s Pride parade last week, members of Britain’s Council of Ex-Muslims (CEMB) were asked by police to lower their banners that read “Allah is Gay,” while other signs saying “Jesus is Gay” attracted no such concern. “Pride is full of placards saying ‘God is Gay,’ ‘Jesus had two fathers,’ as well as those mocking the church and priests and pope, yet CEMB members hold signs saying ‘Allah is Gay’ – as we did – and the police converge to attempt to remove them for causing ‘offence,’” a statement on the CEMB’s website says. Fear and misunderstanding caused the controversy,...

    In the course of the hearing, British high court Justice Francis said their son cannot be moved to the United States for treatment without a court order, squashing hope that a move to grant him residency in the U.S. would help him, according to The Independent. Earlier this week, U.S. Congressional leaders approved a measure to grant Charlie and his parents permanent residency status in an effort to make it easier for him to receive an experimental treatment. Pro-life Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Washington, led the effort; her daughter also was diagnosed with a fatal condition but survived because of...

    AN illegal immigrant with an “abysmal” criminal record has won £40,000 compensation after he was locked up for nearly a year. It is the second time Moroccan Khalid Belfken, 27, got a huge payout after efforts to deport him failed. The drug addict snuck into Britain illegally in 2005. He has committed more than 40 crimes and been jailed four times, most recently for burglary. The Home Office tried to kick Belfken out six times but authorities in Morocco refused to take him back.
