Tens of thousands of people have voted to oppose the implementation of unfair new libel laws that would muzzle the free Press. More than 140,000 people have responded to a Government consultation on whether to implement Section 40 (s.40) of the Crime and Courts Act, which could force newspapers and websites to pay libel costs even if they win a defamation case. While the Department for Culture Media and Sport has not given a breakdown, newspaper industry sources are confident there was a clear majority in favour of the repeal of s40. The consultation closed yesterday and it is believed at least
THE EUROPEAN Union “shafted” Ireland and will pay the price with a shock ‘Irexit’, a think tank has warned. Dublin-based Hibernia Forum said the Republic could leave the bloc as revenge for its treatment by Brussels during the financial crisis. Co-founder Keith Redmond said the country had been “quarantined” and forced to take on “toxic banking debt”. Mr Redmond, who is also a councillor on the Fingal County Council, told Express.co.uk other factors, such as a growing loss of sovereignty, could lead to an Irish EU exit. When asked whether euroscepticism was growing on the island, he said: “For sure.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Friday that the defeat of the Republican plan to repeal Obamacare was ´a victory for all Americans.´ The Democrat, who lost to President Donald Trump in the November 8 election, tweeted: ´Today was a victory for the 24,000,000 people at risk of losing their health insurance, for seniors, for families battling the quiet epidemic of addiction, for new moms and women everywhere.´ ´Most of all, it´s a victory for anyone who believes affordable health care is a human right.´ ´We cannot forget: This victory happened because people in every corner of our country committed their
Relatives of the Westminster terrorist Khalid Masood´s first wife have said he was a ´psychopath´ and they divorced after only three months of marriage. Masood married Muslim Farzana Malik in 2004 after his second release from jail, following his frenzied knife attack on scaffolder Danny Smith, 35, in Eastbourne. However he was ´controlling´ and ´violent´ towards her and she ended up fleeing to friends in Middlesbrough from their home in Crawley, West Sussex, to escape him. On her Facebook page ´Soul Searchers´, she describes Islamic fanaticism as ´nonsensical´, in a lengthy tirade which calls on her fellow Muslims to heed their true faith,
Don´t look now but a cyclone could be spinning off the Bahamas by Sunday. Yep, a tropical system two months before the official start of the hurricane season. Computer model runs and National Hurricane Center forecasters called Friday for the storm to develop cyclonic winds and travel out to sea to the northeast. But it could bring swells and surf to the South Carolina coast, meteorologist Shea Gibson of WeatherFlow said. More importantly, it has meteorologists shifting forward in their seats to begin actively watching for storms to develop in a year when unusually warm waters off South Carolina, as well as in
Former President Bill Clinton was spotted having a night out on the town in Dublin with a couple of wealthy Irish businessmen hours after speaking at Martin McGuinness´s funeral. Clinton, dressed casually in jeans, sweater and a blazer, was photographed leaving Peploe´s Wine Bistro on St Stephen´s Green on Thursday night with Irish billionaire businessman Denis O´Brien and well-known hotelier and philanthropist John Fitzpatrick. The group appeared to be in high spirits as they spoke with a passerby as they left the restaurant, a known hotspot for celebrities and politicians. Fitzpatrick, an Irish-born, Manhattan based hotelier, is a longtime friend of the Clintons,
A terrorist rams his car into a crowd. Then he steps out and starts knifing civilians. That was Wednesday in London, but in Israel it can be any day of the week. So the terrorist attack at Westminster outside Parliament, which killed four, would surprise no Israeli, particularly as to this pattern of terrorism. In Israel it’s been going on for years…deadly car rammings and indiscriminate knifings as a method to strike fear into the heart of an entire population. Now the entire world knows how it feels, but it all begins in Israel, where Islamic terrorists try out new tactics to
THERESA MAY today revealed a British-born man who had previously been probed by MI5 was the terrorist who killed three in a Islamic State-claimed attack yesterday. Following the horror scenes in Westminster yesterday afternoon, which left four dead - including the attacker - and 40 injured, Islamic State (ISIS) jihadists have published a claim of responsibility for the attack. The group´s propaganda outlet, the Amaq News agency, claimed the attacker was a "soldier of the Islamic State" who had responded to recent ISIS calls to target citizens in Western nations. The man mowed down pedestrians on Westminster Bridge in a car before
Nearly three months after the Trump clan moved into their new posh Washington neighborhood, neighbors of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner have expressed their fury over the presidential family´s lack of community etiquette that is ´ruining´ the suburb. Residents have complained their new neighbors have been hogging parking on an already crowded street and leaving trash bags rotting on the curb. A big part of the complaint: a huge security presence, with even a trip to the playground requiring three vans. They have groused that sidewalks have been closed, public parking overrun and that the family and their staff can´t
President Obama’s oldest daughter can’t control her temper like daddy taught her to. (Photos) Saturday, March 25, 2017, found Malia Obama, the 44th President’s oldest daughter, at the Parlor, an exclusive Soho club, for a 21-and-over event. Martina Markota was with Lucian Wintrich and was the first to make note of Malia Obama being there: (Tweet) The minor had been rubbing shoulders with other guests all night until she spotted the Gateway Pundit’s own White House correspondent Lucian Wintrich.

Donald Trump had heard enough about policy and process. It was Thursday afternoon and members of the House Freedom Caucus were peppering the president with wonkish concerns about the American Health Care Act—the language that would leave Obamacare’s “essential health benefits” in place, the community rating provision that limited what insurers could charge certain patients, and whether the next two steps of Speaker Paul Ryan’s master plan were even feasible—when Trump decided to cut them off."Forget about the little "stuff", Trump said, according to multiple sources in the room. "Let´s focus on the big picture here."The group of roughly 30
House Speaker Paul Ryan didn’t just step in it again, big time, on the Ryancare bill this week. The Wisconsin Republican unmasked himself as the man most capable of demolishing his own party and the Trump presidency. The Ryan American Healthcare Bill is a piece of moderate GOP trash that Mr. Ryan owns and has been trying and failing miserably to sell as the long-promised Republican repeal and replacement of Obamacare. By telling conservatives in the House and across America to go have intimate relations with themselves and not meddle in the medical-care matters of him and the rest of
Matryoshkas are Russian nesting dolls. Inside each doll are several others smaller but identically shaped characters until you get to the smallest one inside. Studying what we have learned of the timeline -- and we still don’t have the entire story -- we see Wikileaks, the smallest, at the core, and Obama as the largest piece in what is the most historically outrageous misuse of the people and institutions of government for partisan advantage.
Former President Barack Obama´s journey to French Polynesia was undertaken so he could write his memoir. Obama arrived at a luxury resort frequented by Hollywood stars in mid-March, though it was unknown at the time what he was doing there. The Washington Post reported Sunday that Obama is writing his White House memoir during his extended stay at the eco-friendly resort in French Polynesia´s atoll of Tetiaroa. Bidding for the former president and first lady Michelle Obama´s book rights surpassed $60 million.
Broken promises are as old as politics itself, and there are many famous examples of them in modern history. President George H.W. Bush´s "read my lips, no new taxes" pledge comes immediately to mind, as does President Bill Clinton reneging on his middle-class tax cut, and President Barack Obama never closing Guantanamo Bay. But in each of those cases, those were promises that were made in a given campaign by a given politician. The promise of Obamacare repeal is much different. Republicans ran on repealing and replacing Obamacare for seven years, over the course of four election cycles. They won the
