    WASHINGTON: The United States (US) looks unlikely to follow through on a threat to relegate Britain to second-class trade status once its ally leaves the European Union, as it weighs the potential costs of undermining the countries close diplomatic and military ties. President Barack Obama had warned ahead of Thursday's "Brexit" referendum that Britain would move to the back of the queue on US trade priorities if it voted to leave the bloc, well behind a much larger US European trade deal now under negotiation. But in the face of a severe financial market reaction to the vote to...

    OCT 19 2016 U.S. Urged Ecuador to Act Against WikiLeaks Leader Assange by KEN DILANIAN, WILLIAM M. ARKIN and ROBERT WINDREM Quiet pressure from the U.S. government played a role in Ecuador's decision to block WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange from using the internet at Ecuador's London embassy, U.S. officials told NBC News. "It was a bit of an eviction notice," said a senior intelligence official. Ecuador's government said Tuesday it had partly restricted internet access for Assange, the founder of anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks, who has lived in the South American country's London embassy for more than four years.

    Witchcraft related abuse is a very serious problem in African migrant communities in the UK. There is documented evidence that these abuses are linked to activities of African pastors and African initiated churches. Unfortunately efforts to address this problem are bogged down by concerns over racism, minority rights and abuse of religious liberty. We should not allow such concerns to distract us from addressing this problem. Vulnerable members of the African migrant communities in the UK, particularly children, are at risk of being tortured and murdered by relatives who accuse them of witchcraft. Many of such horrific treatments in the...

    The bloody collapse of Libya – which triggered a refugee crisis and aided the rise of Isis – is blamed today on David Cameron's blunders when he intervened to overthrow Colonel Gaddafi. A damning report by MPs condemns the 2011 military campaign for lacking both “accurate intelligence” and a coherent strategy for the aftermath of removing the dictator. The disastrous results were “political and economic collapse”, tribal warfare, the refugee crisis, widespread human rights abuses and the rise of Islamic State (IS) in North Africa, fuelled by weapons abandoned by the Gaddafi regime.

The assaults continued in even larger numbers against young girls, reaching a staggering 1 million by estimations. This report is so shocking that it invokes a sense of disbelief, which is perhaps why Western citizens are not in collective uproar over such atrocities. It is appalling and inexcusable that any “authorities” could so spinelessly sit by, petrified of being branded racist/Islamophobic, and would neglect their duties as...

    With participation in traditional faiths at near-record lows, Britain is seeing the rise of what humanists describe as “pastors” for the non-religious. Last month the University of Westminster in London broke new ground by appointing its first official secular advisor for students. The move followed efforts by the British Humanist Association since 2014 to train more than 100 volunteers to go into schools, hospitals and prisons in order to provide counseling support for those who don’t believe in a deity. Early this year hospitals run by Britain’s National Health Service in Leicester also saw their first humanist appointed to the...

    And demonstrates how the Left serves the Islamic supremacist agenda.London’s new Muslim mayor, Sadiq Khan, is allocating over two million dollars (£1,730,726) to an “online hate crime hub” enabling police to track and arrest “trolls” who “target…individuals and communities.” There can be no doubt, given the nature of the British political establishment today, which “trolls” these new Thought Police will be going after, and which “communities” will be protected from “hate speech.” “Islamophobia,” which David Horowitz and I termed “the thought crime of the totalitarian future,” is now going to bring down upon the hapless “trolls” the wrath of London’s...

    Jeremy Corbyn used his position in Parliament to call for the “complete rehabilitation” of Leon Trotsky, it has emerged despite dismissing concerns about hard-Left entryism as “nonsense”. In 1988, the Labour leader – then a backbencher – demanded the Marxist revolutionary and other communists have their achievements formally recognised by the Russian state. Mr Corbyn was one of a series of prominent left-wingers who put their name to an Early Day Motion, a form of parliamentary petition with no standing in law, which made the call. It came to light after parliamentary staff on Monday uncovered a paper record of...

    Daniel Kawczynski, Member of Foreign Affairs Select Committee and Chairman of the All Party Group for Poland, is the latest high profile Member of Parliament to call for a change in the relationship between NATO and Russia, specifically asking for a reversal of the military build-up on the Russian and NATO borders and a de-escalation of the recent tensions. Mr. Kawczynski, writing in a letter to the Telegraph newspaper, said whilst acknowledging that many in the London political circles “are suspicious of Russian motives and intentions” and see Russia as “causing concern for European security particularly over her actions in...

    Islamic State and “Sharia Police” stickers have been seen on vehicles in Hamburg, and some fear that extremists may try and harass residents.

According to the woman, she saw a car at a traffic light populated by three women wearing the Islamic full-face veil, the hood of the car was described as having a large logo on it with a blue border which read: “Sharia Police”. Now...

    Thirty-five-year-old Nasir Hussain, of Pakistan’s Punjab province, has been arrested for the double murders of his sisters, 22-year-old Kosar and 28-year-old Gulzar Bibi, in the latest “honor killing” case. Hussain shot his sisters because they married the men of their choice, for love. The murders were committed on July 29, just days after “a British woman of Pakistani origin was allegedly killed by her father and former husband for marrying her second husband against her parents’ wishes.” In another incident, a social media star was strangled by her brother after exposing an Islamic cleric’s violations of Sharia law, including sexual...

    What did Stephen Bennett say? “Don’t come over to this country and treat it like your own. Britain first.” Other than that, all we get are vague characterizations of what he wrote, as apparently the Manchester Evening News doesn’t want to be hauled up on charges itself for reporting about what he said. So we hear instead that “one comment he made concerned Asian women, another was likely to be offensive to Muslims.” For that, he got “a 12-month community order, with 180 hours’ unpaid work.” Unpaid work is slave labor. For the crime of offending Muslims. It doesn’t appear,...

    The first trailer for Christopher Nolan's highly-anticipated Dunkirk has been released. The 56-second-long preview is shot in dull tones and focuses on the bleak, raw nature of the French coastline in 1940. A score which mimics an ever-quickening heartbeat ramps up the tension, reaching a climax as a boat packed full of allied troops recoil in fear at the sound of incoming German bombers flying above them.
