No, it´s not racist to think Ukip
has a point about immigration

Telegraph [UK], by Tim Stanley

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 5/3/2014 9:27:00 AM

Matthew Parris has written a silly column about Ukip. A very silly column. It fits with the growing narrative that Ukip isn’t just a bunch of xenophobic golf players with too much time on their hands but actually the first stage of the Fourth Reich. Oh my, it is silly. At an almost empty Derby railway station, I passed a little posse of youths with purple badges and pound-sign stickers and … felt just momentarily menaced … I was starting to look at the Ukip phenomenon with new eyes. Were those eyes entirely open, Matthew? For an angry gang of Ukip

US President Obama calls
for death penalty review
BBC News [UK], by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 5/3/2014 6:37:15 AM     Post Reply
US President Barack Obama plans to ask Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate problems surrounding the application of the death penalty. The US leader´s announcement comes just days after a botched execution in Oklahoma drew widespread attention. [Snip] The president said he has conflicting feelings regarding the death penalty. "This situation in Oklahoma I think just highlights some of the significant problems," Mr Obama told reporters. Americans should "ask ourselves some difficult and profound questions around these issues", he added. Mr Obama, trained as a lawyer, said the death penalty is warranted in some cases--including child and mass murder--but its application in

Seven international military observers taken captive in eastern Ukraine a week ago have been released. Five Ukrainian officers captured with the observers, who are linked to the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, were also freed. Pro-Russian separatists in the town of Sloviansk say they released the OSCE observers "without conditions". The news came as Ukraine´s government said it had resumed military action to tackle the separatists in the east. Russia, accused by the West of being behind the unrest, says it "no longer has any influence" over the separatists. Moscow also accused Kiev and the West of responsibility for Friday´s violence in

ST IVES, CAMBRIDGESHIRE, UK––An over-capacity crowd of around 650 people met UKIP leader Nigel Farage for the final town hall-style meeting of his pre-European Election tour of the United Kingdom. With UKIP swag plastered all over the Burgess Hall venue, Farage entered to rapturous applause, flanked by increased security following the assault on him earlier this week. Farage was speaking to the throngs of disaffected Brits, who have witnessed their livelihoods sacrificed for multiculturalism, big state-driven debt, and the transfer of sovereignty over their own lives from their local towns and villages to centralised governments in London and Brussels.

Head teachers raise ´serious concerns´

Schools across Britain are likely to have been targeted in an alleged Islamist plot to take over classrooms, head teachers have warned. The Telegraph understands that there are growing concerns about the possible infiltration of schools in Bradford, Manchester and parts of east London. [Snip] The acknowledgement from the professional body follows a series of exposés by The Telegraph which disclosed how a “Trojan Horse” plot in Birmingham had put schools under pressure illegally to segregate classrooms and change teaching to reflect radical Islamic beliefs. On Friday, Ofsted confirmed that its investigation had spread from 18 to 21 schools in

Russia and Ukraine inched closer to war yesterday after ‘many’ pro-Moscow separatists were killed during a major military offensive to seize back a rebel-held city. As fighting flared in the east of Ukraine, Vladimir Putin said the operation had ‘destroyed’ any hopes of peace. The Kremlin said Kiev’s decision to deploy the army against its own people was a ‘catastrophe’ and called for an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council. On a day of dramatic developments in the crisis: Ukraine’s acting president Oleksandr Turchynov said the militants suffered ‘heavy losses’ in the anti-terror operation;

How exciting to discover that Amesbury in Wiltshire is the oldest, continuously-inhabited village in the country. Archaeologists have worked out that people have lived there since 8,820 BC. [Snip] Even as much of the country gets covered in concrete, tarmac and out-of-town shopping centres, those ancient place names survive beneath it all, giving clues to how those places originally looked – and often still look. The vast majority of English place names are derived from the Old English spoken by Germanic immigrants who came here in the 5th and 6th centuries, after the Romans left in 410 AD.

A car bomb attack in Nigeria´s capital city has killed at least 19 people and injured another 60, according to officials. [Snip] Nobody has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, but it bears of the hallmarks of radical Islamic group Boko Haram, who set off another blast just yards away last month which killed a further 70 people. The attack comes just days before the city hosts the World Economic Forum on Africa, which will attract prominent figures from across the globe including former Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who is listed as a speaker. The Nigerian government is deploying 6,000 police

Wednesday’s BBC World newscasts were dominated by coverage of Tuesday night’s delayed Oklahoma execution of convicted murderer Clayton Lockett. The execution was the top story for at least four consecutive hours on BBC World, the British broadcasters´ international television service, because there were complications during the execution which delayed the period of time it took for condemned man to finally be pronounced dead. [Snip] With repeated and detailed descriptions of the procedure used to execute a man whose crime, watching his friends bury alive the 19-year old girl he raped and then shot, was mentioned, if at all, merely as

More than two weeks after an estimated 234 school girls were kidnapped by Islamic extremists in Nigeria, people have taken to the streets for another day of protests to voice their unhappiness at the government’s failure to ensure the safe release of the hostages. The girls were seized by members of the Boko Haram terrorist network at a high school in the town of Chibok in the nation´s far northeast on April 16. Armed men herded the girls out of their beds and forced them into a convoy of trucks which then disappeared into the dense forest bordering Cameroon.

Adams - shrewd but ruthless leader
Derry Journal [N. Ireland], by Staff    Original Article

Gerry Adams represents the most recognisable public face of Sinn Fein. He defended IRA gunmen for a substantial period of the conflict which disfigured and devastated Northern Ireland for 25 years. But in 2007 he dramatically agreed to join an historic power-sharing Government in Stormont with his old arch-enemy the Rev Ian Paisley. It was the sensational climax to years of bitterness, hatred, bloodshed and violence - a rapprochement than nobody believed would ever happen. [Snip] Because of his reputed influence and power over IRA gunmen, Adams was regarded by Downing Street as a key element in the process, someone

The son of Jean McConville, who was murdered by the IRA, says he knows who took his mother and has seen the men in the street but will never tell anyone their names because he or his family will be shot. Michael McConville was just 11 when his mother was dragged from their Belfast home in 1972 as he and his nine brothers and sisters fearfully clung onto her. A week later he was taken himself, bound to a chair, had a gun held to his head and was threatened with being shot if he spoke about the IRA. He

Former White House National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor went on Fox News on Thursday, and after host Brett Baier grilled him over the issue of the talking points used after the attack, he finally responded with, "Dude, this was like two years ago." Throughout the exchange, Vietor — who seemed annoyed at the line of questioning — wasn´t really able to answer Baier on various questions, telling him he "believes so" or that he didn´t remember. "You don´t remember?" Baier asked, to which Vietor responded, "Dude, this was like two years ago. We´re still talking about the most mundane

I don’t believe the Second Amendment was ever intended to support the kind of gun craziness we contend with today, but since it’s always used to ward off any common-sense gun reforms, maybe we ought to just fix the Constitution and be done with it. Yes, I know the odds against that are immense, but maybe we could start by nibbling away at the idea that the Constitution is infallible or that the founders had the answers to everything. They were smart men but neither perfect nor prescient. One of the ways they showed how smart they were, was that they made

ITHACA, N.Y.--Researchers at Cornell University conducted a study about biting versus chewing habits in children and found that kids who eat chicken on the bone are more likely to disobey adults and be aggressive. The study, which was published in Eating Behaviors, found that children were "twice as likely to disobey adults and twice as aggressive toward other kids" when eating food they had to hold and bite. Researches found that children were more docile when eating cut-up pieces of food, results which would seem to indicate that there is a connection between having to use teeth to eat and aggressive

A newly-emerged government email directly "contradicts the message that President Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice and White House press secretary Jay Carney repeated publicly" in the immediate aftermath of the attack in Benghazi. Per Sharyl Attkisson dot com, the "email is titled “Libya update from Beth Jones.” Beth Jones served as Assistant Secretary of State to Hillary Clinton at the time. The email documents a conversation between Jones and Libya’s Ambassador at 9:45am on Sept. 12, 2012 not long after the attacks. This below contradicts the White House and State Department´s story

As his co-hosts on The Five continued to examine every angle of the 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi Friday afternoon, this time focusing on comments made by a former White House spokesperson, Bob Beckel decided he had finally had enough. Deliberating echoing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Beckel pounded the table and said, “We know Islamic radicals killed these people, what difference does it make anymore?!” “Let me finish!” Beckel shouted at Eric Bolling, as that host tried to prevent him from bringing up any issues unrelated to the Benghazi attack. When Bolling said he should

WASHINGTON -- U.S. military personnel knew early on that the Bengahzi attack was a "hostile action" and not a protest gone awry, according to a retired general who served at U.S. Africa Command´s headquarters in Germany during the attack. While the exact nature of the attack was not clear from the start, "what we did know early on was that this was a hostile action," Retired Air Force Brigadier General Robert Lovell said in his prepared statement this morning to members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. "This was no demonstration gone terribly awry." Lovell´s testimony is the first

Angry congressional Republicans have commanded Secretary John Kerry to testify in a May 21 hearing about why the State Department hid documents showing how the aftermath of the 2012 terror attack in Benghazi unfolded. They are also launching a new investigative committee to dig further into the scandal, which erupted just weeks before President Obama´s re-election. He insisted at the time that al-Qaeda was ´on the run,´ but documents now confirm that the State Department knew immediately that it was a terror attack carried out by an al-Qaeda-affiliated group. Two emails have emerged in the past 24 hours that suggest Obama administration

With the unveiling of the Affordable Care Act´s website, the public experienced a painful reminder of the consequences of the government´s new authority over health care. While millions signed up for insurance, millions of others abruptly lost their existing coverage and access to their doctors because that coverage didn´t fit new ObamaCare definitions. The health-care law was generated by an administration promoting government as the solution to inequality, yet the greatest irony of ObamaCare is what will undoubtedly follow as a long-term, unintended consequence of the law: a decidedly unequal, two-tiered health system.

The thrill up the leg is gone. There’s not even a tingle in the toes. President Obama’s media supporters are abandoning him. Even the liberal culture seems to be abandoning him. And as he slips into the low 40s in two recent polls, it’s hard to see how he recasts his once-glittering image. This is the kind of sea change that goes beyond polling numbers. The very mass culture that celebrated Barack Obama, that turned him into an international icon, is now migrating toward the darker side of his legacy, perhaps fueled by a sense of frustration and disappointment.

Former National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor addressed Fox News host Bret Baier as “dude” and said he could hardly remember how he helped change the Benghazi talking points because it was “two years ago.” The previously unreleased White House emails this week revealed a coordinated attempt to protect President Barack Obama during the 2012 election campaign and place the blame for the terrorist attack on the anti-Islamic YouTube video and not a “broader failure of policy.” Baier pressed Vietor on his role in changing the talking points by adding a line about the administration warning the day before the attacks of

Now we know that Barack Obama was in the White House but never made it to the Situation Room the night of the Benghazi Attack on 9-11 2012. This was after Islamists stormed the US Embassy in Cairo earlier in the day. Obama never made it to the Situation Room. Tommy Vietor was there. Obama wasn’t. Tommy Vietor: I was in the Situation Room that night. Ok. And we didn’t know where the ambassador was. Definitively. Bret Baier: Was the president in the Situation Room? Vietor: No… Baier: Where was the president. Vietor: In the White House. Baier: He wasn’t in the Situation Room. Vietor: Uhh. At what point in the evening.

Can you tell a person’s politics based on where they buy their groceries or hamburger? In the their front page story Thursday about how demographic shifts in suburbs are changing the politics of America, the Journal’s Elizabeth Williamson and Dante Chinni write about how the arrival of restaurants like P.F. Chang’s and Chipotle are telltale signs that conservative exurbs are turning liberal. Experian Marketing Services does a rolling survey of thousands of people who patronize restaurants and retail establishments to determine, among other things, the politics of stores’ customers.
