Europe has stolen the rights we
won at Magna Carta. Let´s
fight to reclaim them

Telegraph [UK], by Norman Tebbit

I wonder if when he announced his policy of fixed-term Parliaments David Cameron had taken in to account that we would be celebrating the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta at the time of the general election next year. Well, most of us that is. Here in Bury St, Edmunds we will celebrate this year the 800th anniversary of the meeting of the barons here in the rose garden beside the Cathedral at which they first completed drafting the great charter, and then swore terrible oaths that they would stick together and force the King to sign at a council at

Good read, especially for history buffs. The US also could use a "gang" of knights to protect the US Constitution.

Europe didn´t steal anything. The Brits have surrendered their heritage for the past 70 years. Margret Thatcher was the greatest thing to happen to the grand isle. They, like America, have cast their lot with totalitarians masquerading as republicans,

How can anything you gave away be called a theft ? Worse yet, you are still giving the country away.

US anger at Israel Kerry ´comment´
BBC News [UK], by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 1/14/2014 3:31:38 PM     Post Reply
The US has condemned as "offensive" reported comments by Israel´s defence minister about Secretary of State John Kerry´s Middle East peace proposals. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said the alleged comments by Moshe Yaalon were "inappropriate" given America´s support to Israel´s security. It was a rare rebuke to America´s ally. [Snip] He said a security plan Mr Kerry had presented to Israel was "not worth the paper it was written on". "John Kerry--who has come to us determined and is acting out of an incomprehensible obsession and messianic fervour--cannot teach me anything about the conflict with the Palestinians," he is

Benefits Street is unrepresentative. Really?

Benefits Street, Channel 4´s hit, fly on the wall documentary about a Birmingham street full of welfare claimants, is a gross distortion of reality. We know this because a group of charity heads has written to the Telegraph to say so. [Snip] Apparently the series focuses on "an unrepresentative minority", "reinforcing harmful stereotypes where the most extreme examples are presented as the norm." Gosh. I wonder how they know. For example, when I checked the annual accounts of one of the concerned charities, I couldn´t help noticing that its top paid employee--presumably the chief executive who signed the letter--gets between

A grandmother has been ‘left to die’ by the NHS after being refused life-saving chemotherapy--because her cancer is not ‘exceptional’ enough. After waiting eight months for the treatment using ‘anti-cancer’ drug Ofatumumab, Mary Stanton, 69, was told she was not eligible for it and there was nothing more doctors could do for her. [Snip] She was given the devastating news by her oncology consultant, Dr Richard Murrin, at Birmingham’s City Hospital, who was also baffled by the decision and vowed to appeal it. Mrs Stanton who was already ‘distraught’ with the news, was then handed a ‘My Life’ pamphlet by

Baby wipes are leaving children with an itchy, scaly and red rash which is often misdiagnosed as a more serious skin condition, a study revealed today. An allergic reaction to moist wipes is believed to be behind the rash which is being mistaken for conditions such as eczema, impetigo and psoriasis. Dr Mary Wu Chang, a professor of dermatology and pediatrics at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine, said that she has seen six children with the mysterious rash over the past two years. The study which Dr Chang co-authored was published on Monday in the medical journal Pediatrics.

The government finally released Obamacare enrollment figures Monday and the findings could spell higher premiums for those who need coverage most. Enrollments are lower for the healthy, younger Americans are needed to keep premiums from rising because they pay more and take less from the system. [Snip] Adults ages 55-64 were the most heavily represented in the signups, accounting for 33 percent of the total. Overall, the premiums paid by people in that demographic don´t fully cover their medical expenses. Some are in the waiting room for Medicare; that coverage starts at age 65.

Atheist Afghan man granted

A young Afghan man who became an atheist after coming to Britain has been granted asylum on the grounds that the threat to his life for having no faith would amount to “religious” persecution. In what is thought to be the first case of its kind in the UK, the Home Office accepted that sending the man back to his country of birth could put him in danger specifically because of his lack of religious beliefs. The man, who is not being named for safety reasons, was born a Muslim but abandoned his faith after coming to the UK as

Britain has seen off the threat of new EU laws that could have strangled the nascent UK shale gas industry at birth, according to European Commission documents seen by The Telegraph. The EC has shelved plans for a new directive, following lobbying from David Cameron, and is instead preparing to announce guidelines that shale drillers say will not inhibit the push for fracking as they simply echo existing UK rules. The EC is also preparing to say that shale gas could cap or even cut energy prices and bring economic benefits to Europe, according to a draft copy of its communication, due

John Kerry topped a list of ´traitors´ who Hillary Clinton´s staff believed betrayed her during her bitter 2008 presidential primary battle with Barack Obama, a new book has revealed. The detailed list, which also included Democratic Party heavyweight Edward Kennedy, who died in 2009, was kept by Clinton´s aides who ranked names on a seven-point scale, it is claimed. Kerry, who was Senator for Massachusetts at the time and went on to replace Clinton as Secretary of State in the Obama administration, was among those receiving the worst possible score, according to the book.

My old friend Michael, now Lord, Dobbs had a good day last Friday successfully piloting the European Referendum Bill through its first stage in the House of Lords. That was after a most extraordinary interview on the BBC Today Programme with Mr Evan Davis in which he was constantly heckled and interrupted to prevent him making his case or completing an answer to Mr Davis´s questions. That was followed by a most pathetically obsequious interview with Lord Mandelson who it seems was not willing to be interveiwed together with Lord Dobbs and spoke from a radio car.

The crisis engulfing Chris Christie has deepened, as the 2016 Republican presidential hopeful was accused of misusing millions of dollars from a storm relief fund to promote himself. Federal investigators are looking into claims that the embattled New Jersey governor acted improperly by spending $4.7 million (£2.9 million) in public funds on TV advertisements in which he starred. The advertising campaign, to promote tourism following the cleanup from 2012´s Superstorm Sandy, cost $2.2 million (£1.3 million) more than a comparable proposal that did not feature Mr Christie. Frank Pallone, a Democratic congressman for New Jersey, said the extra money could

The woman now serving as New Jersey Governor Chris Christie´s chief of staff was directly informed via email about the problematic lane closures on the George Washington Bridge within hours of the closures being reversed by a New York official. Regina Egea, a longtime staffer of Christie and the incoming chief of staff to the governor was forwarded an angry message from Patrick Foye, executive director of the Port Authority, regarding the closures on September 13. Following this latest revelation, the New Jersey assemblyman leading the investigation into the shutdown of the George Washington Bridge has said he doesn´t think Christie´s assertion

So now we know yet another reason why the BBC is so biased in its reporting on climate change: because in 2006 the Labour government effectively paid it to be so. It was a £67,000 grant from the Department for International Development (DFID) which paid for the notorious, secret high-level seminar at which the BBC was persuaded to abandon all pretence at neutrality on the global warming issue. I expect the BBC´s environmental analyst Roger Harrabin just can´t wait to get his teeth into this major scandal. Oh no, wait, I forgot: Harrabin was the seminar´s organiser. (Don´t worry, Rog.

Only days after we learned the Obama administration had appointed an Obama donor to head investigations into the IRS targeting of conservative organizations, we now have a leak from law enforcement saying the FBI doesn’t expect to file criminal charges. That’s the gist of a late-breaking story Monday evening in The Wall Street Journal. The story notes that though the investigation may go on another few months, unless other evidence is unearthed, the FBI conclusion will be that the IRS was a “mismanaged bureaucracy” enforcing rules “ it didn’t understand.” Without the evidence, we’re not in a position to say. But criminal

Black dogs don´t get as adopted as easily as others animals of other colors. The reason is largely because of some common misconceptions about them. Black dogs are mischaracterized as mean and potentially violent and according to NBC News. Black Dog Syndrome is a phenomenon in which dogs with black fur often go unadopted because of misinformed stereotypes. Black dogs are are euthanized at a much higher rate than dogs with different complexions. Many owners of black dogs say they are sweet, lovable, but also unwanted. The chances of being adopted are poor if you´re a black dog.

White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer sent an e-mail early Tuesday to preview President Obama´s plan to use his executive power in ways Americans have never seen before. "President Obama has a resolution for 2014: That this will be a year of action," Pfeiffer said in the e-mail, pointing out that Obama would no longer be waiting around for Congress to get things done. "Instead, the president will use his executive authority, both his pen and his phone, to work with anyone to get things done — whether they be leaders in business, education, Congress, states, or local communities," he said.

In 1994 or early 1995 the still unknown Barack Obama sent his editor at Times Books, Henry Ferris, the first two-thirds of his memoir Dreams from My Father. He told Ferris that to complete the book, he had to return to Kenya to do some research. The evidence strongly suggests that Obama went not to Kenya to do that research but to the local library to do some borderline plagiarizing. In the way of background, Barack and Michelle Obama visited Kenya in the summer of 1992 and married in October of that year. There is little dispute about the timing of

Washington - Just days after dismissing two top advisers for their roles in the George Washington Bridge scandal, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is facing questions over the use of Superstorm Sandy relief funds. CNN has learned that federal officials are investigating whether Christie improperly used those relief funds to produce tourism ads that starred him and his family. The news couldn´t come at a worse time for the scandal-plagued Republican, who is facing two probes into whether his staff tied up traffic near the country´s busiest bridge to punish a Democratic mayor who refused to endorse his successful re-election bid.

Before Chris Christie’s first scandal devolves into an obsessive quest to prove who knew what, when, it’s worth pausing to appreciate the wonderful, quintessential New Jerseyness of the incident itself. What happened, roughly, is this. On August 13, Bridget Anne Kelly, one of Christie’s three deputy chiefs of staff, sent an email to David Wildstein, a Christie confidant serving as an executive for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which controls much of the transit infrastructure of northern Jersey. Kelly said that it was “time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee.” Some speculate that the precipitating

Minutes after the American consulate in Benghazi came under assault on Sept. 11, 2012, the nation´s top civilian and uniformed defense officials -- headed for a previously scheduled Oval Office session with President Obama -- were informed that the event was a "terrorist attack," declassified documents show. The new evidence raises the question of why the top military men, one of whom was a member of the president´s Cabinet, allowed him and other senior Obama administration officials to press a false narrative of the Benghazi attacks for two weeks afterward.

On Monday, the Supreme Court heard arguments regarding whether President Barack Obama´s appointments to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) are unconstitutional. The case will probably be a lopsided defeat for the president, with his own Supreme Court appointees expressing deep skepticism of the Justice Department´s arguments. If the Court goes the route it signaled during argument, all the rulings and regulations from that powerful body over a period of a couple years will be declared illegal, at least temporarily until a new Board can reconsider them. For decades, presidents of both parties have strayed from the limits of the

The case of Jahi McMath brings up numerous critical bioethical issues, especially as we are going into period of health care rationing and fewer choices in our medical care.(snip) In the wake of early enthusiasm for heart transplantation, "brain death" legislation was passed in the 1970´s in all fifty states in the USA, to allow for death to be declared by neurological criteria, rather than the cessation of cardiac activity. This permits surgeons to remove hearts from "brain dead" donors and not be charged with homicide. Despite claims that there has never been a case of a person diagnosed with

LOS ANGELES — About 20 million DirecTV customers nationwide lost The Weather Channel because of a dispute over fees between the channel and the satellite service. The two companies pointed fingers at each other late Monday as a midnight EST deadline for renegotiation of carriage fees paid by DirecTV to The Weather Channel passed without an agreement. In a statement, David Kenny, CEO of the channel´s parent company, The Weather Co., said it offered DirecTV the best rate for its programming. Kenny accused the satellite provider of putting profits ahead of public safety. "We are not looking for a large fee increase," Kenny

Inside a cramped third-floor office of Hillary Clinton’s once-bustling presidential campaign headquarters in the Ballston neighborhood of Arlington, Va., Kris Balderston and Adrienne Elrod put the finishing touches on a political hit list. It was late June 2008, and Hillary had dropped her bid for the presidency earlier that month. The war room, where her brain trust had devolved into profanity-laced shouting matches, was empty. The data crunchers were gone. The political director had drifted out. A handful of Hillary’s aides had already hooked up with Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign in Chicago. Balderston’s salt-and-pepper beard gave him the look of a
