Facebook Steps Up Censorship in Britain, Bans Populist News Site

Facebook continues its agenda of scrubbing its platform of populists and Islam critics in Britain, “unpublishing” the page of right-leaning news website Politicalite and suspending its editor-in-chief for a post supporting Tommy Robinson.
Breitbart News previously covered Google’s decision to suspend advertising services to Politicalite, and Facebook’s suspension of the site’s page amid a crackdown on supporters of Tommy Robinson following the release of “Panodrama,” Robinson’s undercover exposure of bias at the BBC. PayPal also recently suspended service to the website.

Last week, Breitbart News covered the takedown of posts linking to a Politicalite story from British Yellow Vest activist James Goddard. Now censorship against the populist website on Facebook continues

The site received a message that its Facebook page had been unpublished late last week.

May Will Offer Her Brexit Dire Deal For A 4th Vote because She Has No Plan B

After the Easter recess, the UK Parliament is back at work today and Brexit-related news is back in the headlines. Nothing has changed since May struck an agreement with the EU for a six-month extension of Article 50, which the EU made conditional on The Prime Minister getting her Brexit-In-Name-Only treaty accepted by British lawmakers before elections to the European Parliament in May.

Talks with tho opposition Labour Party, aimed at finding an alternative to Mrs May’s Brexit deal remain deadlocked with Labour’s insistence on a second referendum the biggest obstacle. Though the Tory and Labour representatives resumed talks on Tuesday, widely cirulated rumours suggest the talks could fall apart in the coming days.

Whatever happens with the talks is of little irrelevance because the EU has been clear that the withdrawal agreement (suspected to have ben drafted by Angela Merkel because of its one sidedness,) is the only deal it will accept. That deal has already been thrown out three times by The British House of Commons. Though the margin of defeat has shrunk in each successive vote it is still substantial. So long as the Irish Backstop, the section which would keep Norther Ireland tied to the EU while mainland Britain left, remains the immovable object blocking the deal’s progress it’s unlikely that May will be able to win over enough Brexiteers to push the deal through.

MayTheresa May looks as if she is about to throw up after hearing the latest Brexit – Picture: Zero Hedge

With few viable alternatives apart from another extension and another and another, the Financial Times reported on Tuesday, surprising absolutely no one, that May, now if not recognised as the most stupid, arrogant, stupid politician ever, surely a contender, is preparing to bring the virtually unaltered withdrawal agreement back for a fourth vote.

Just like the third vote, May will need to embrace some procedural maneuvers to satisfy Speaker Bercow’s condition that the deal must be “substantially different” than prior votes if May wants to bring it back. This time, the withdrawal agreement will come packaged in a more far-reaching withdrawal agreement bill.

And a vote could come as soon as next week.

Downing Street sources suggest a fourth vote on May’s bill could be the last chance to avoid Britain’s participating in the upcoming elections to the EU Parliament, something May had desperately sought to avoid and which would result in the anihilation of the Conservative Party bloc in the European Parliament.

If , as is probable,the bill is defeated again May would be prohibited from bringing it back for another vote until a new session of parliament begins in November.  We guess May, ever a fanatical supporter of the EU and globalism, would stubbornly try to find some kind of procedural loophole to keep bringing her deal back and keep Britain in the EU until opposition evaporates from sher fatigue.

Even if it should eventually manage to pass the Commons, there are still procedural hurdles to negotiate before Brexit could be officially delivered. The Daily Telegraph reports:

The treaty the bill is intended to implement includes provisions such as the UK’s £39bn exit payment to the EU, protection of citizens’ rights, a transition period and the so-called backstop to avoid a hard border on the island of Ireland. If the legislation is rejected, as currently seems likely, the government could not reintroduce it again in this session of parliament.

“It would be quite a big thing,” admitted one ally of Mrs May. In those circumstances the bill could only be brought back if the current parliamentary session was ended.

Approval for the legislation would kick off a tortuous passage through parliament during which the bill could be amended. Attempts to add a customs union or a second referendum would be expected. Even if the bill did eventually become law, Downing Street said there would still have to be a separate “meaningful vote” on Mrs May’s deal under the terms of 2018 Brexit legislation. However, that would be expected to be a formality if MPs have already approved the bill to put the draft treaty into effect.

Whatever happens, May’s deal, along with May herself, may soon become a footnote in history. That’s because, as the Telegraph reported,  Sir Graham Brady, the leader of the influential 1922 Committee of Conservative members with no official government position, is planning to confront the boss on Tuesday and demand that she sets a date for her resignation or the party’s members will change the leadership rules to allow her to be ousted (after surviving a no confidence vote late last year, May is immune from further challenges for a year under the current rules).

Other prominent Conservatives, including Nigel Evans,  member for Ribble Valley (where I live though I didn’t vote for him,) have called on May to resign immediately.

PM cancels Easter break for team negotiating with Labour in a bid to STOP Farage

Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage, who s>uccessfully lobbied for a referendum on Britain’s future in the EU and then led the Leave campaign to a surprising (but only to the political establishment and mainstream media,) victory launched his new Brexit Party this week to get MEPs elected in May now it appears certain that Mrs May’s desperate efforts to overturn the result of the democratic vote have partially succeeded by gaining a delay in the date we actually leave. However, Mrs May is even more desperate to avoid Mr Farage and his party gaining a majority of UK seats in the European Parliament and to do that she has ordered her negotiators work through Easter in a bid to cobble together a dodgy deal with Jeremy Corbyn’s far left Labour Party to get her thrice rejected ‘brexit-in-name-only” deal accepted by the House of Commons before the new 22 May deadline.

Mrs May cannot do that without Labour’s support and has infuriated her own party by betraying manifesto pledges to offer the left wing extremists of Labour sweetners that will win their support. Funny thing about the name May, it rhymes with betray.

A Downing Street source told The Sunday Mirror: “These talks have been constructive and serious and both sides want to see further progress over the Easter recess. If we can keep up the pace of negotiations, we can get a deal over the line and avoid having European elections.”

Mr Farage is dead set on winning more seats than May and Corbyn’s parties in the European Parliament election. Writing in the Sunday Express today he said: “As time has gone on, this arrogant elite has stuck two fingers up at their own manifestos, lied to the electorate, and done everything possible to thwart the result.

“They have concocted and confected all sorts of bogus arguments to try to kill Brexit. The sheer scale of their betrayal of the country is difficult to grasp.”

He has called upon people to stop supporting the establishment if they want to see the 2016 referendum result to go through.

He continued: “In light of this, the best option open to Brexiteers is to punish both of the Establishment parties and back The Brexit Party. The Conservatives and Labour have been as bad as each o.ther when it comes to choking off Brexit. In their own ways, both have connived to let down the upstanding citizens of Britain who voted to Leave in 2016“

Mr Farage has urged people to support his party in the upcoming election so that Brexit can be delivered.

Farage Says New Brexit Party Will Spark “A Political Revolution” And Terrify The Tories

the daily stirrer
Nigel Farage (Picture: http://www.dailymail.co.uk )

Nigel Farage, who led the successful Brexit campaign, warned backsliding elitist politicians on Tuesday that his brexit Party would spark a political “revolution” – a cliched line but appropriate given the mood of the country – and strike fear into the hearts of ineffectual Tories who have so far failed to deliver on the promise of the Brexit referendum if the UK is forced to contest EU Parliament elections as part of Prime Minister Theresa May’s, the Sun newspaper reports.

In an interview with the Sun, Farage confirmed the official launch of the Brexit Party would happen during an event in Coventry on Friday. He promised the new party would contest every region in the May 23 European Parliamentary elections, which he is sure will happen if the UK is granted another Article 50 extension. He spoke as Theresa May (it rhymes with betray,) was in Brussels begging for more time to get her Brexit-in-name-only deal throgh parliament after it has already failed three times. Any extension the EU offers is likely to be laden with more unacceptable terms and conditions.

The Brexit party, Farage said, would dedicate itself to leading a fighting back against “the betrayal of democracy” by May and the Conservative Party she leads and the opposition Labour and Liberal Democrat prties. Though a twitter account for the Brexit Party, Farage added that if you supported Brexit, “both parties have failed you.”

Farage says that beyond resuing Brexit from Remainers of both the Conservative and Labour Parties who have been determined to overturn the referendum result, the goal of the Brexit Party is to upend the British two-party system in its current form. His announcement followed remarks from Tory Brexiteer MP Anne Morris, who said she might vote for the Brexit Party if European elections happen.

Stupid Remainer Snobs

In the comment thread on a crisis in the Conservative Party because of Theresa May’s inept handling of the Brexit process I came across this exchange of comments, which I think illustrates perfectly why supporters of Britain’s annexation by The Fourth Reich have behaved so obnoxiously towards those of us who informed ourselves of how the EU works , its long and short term policies and its contempt for democracy shown in responses to previous referendums in member states that have not gone te way the EU demanded. Read the original article HERE
Then look at the articulate and well thought out comment by Sally Bettis and the nasty, mean spirited response from a Remain supporter. 
Sally Bettis

Most of the remainer posts on here are positively dripping with the superior, high minded condescension the referendum winners have largely come to expect from hugely embittered referendum losers unable to stomach democracy unless it agrees with their point of view.

They perfectly exemplify the arrogance of the liberal left establishment and EU Bureaucrat elite – the EU has been failing it’s citizens for decades, all the way back to the hugely misconceived project of monetary union. It’s citizens have legitimate reasons to think the EU has been failing, not just on immigration and monetary union, but on its security policy and its policy towards radical islam to.

Look at the situation in Germany today where Merkel tells us that multiculturalism is going well and we just need to change our attitudes – but look at what the consequences have already been of throwing open the gates and embarking on a process of integration which seems to have almost no chance of success. Look at how unsuccessful Northern Europe was in admitting asylum seekers in the 1990’s on a much smaller scale. The unemployment differential between the native born and foreign born in Northern Europe was enormous even before the latest wave of migrations.

Monetary union has been a disaster for all the reasons most US economists and many of us said it would be (but not most UK economists/’experts’, who said it would be a disaster if we did’t join!).

European Security policy with respect to North Africa and the Middle East has been disaster too.

On the migration issue and radical islam issues the EU leadership has got it fundamentally wrong.

The EU elite’s performance over the last two decades has entirely justified the revolt of provincial UK – that was what we saw with Brexit and if the liberal establishment had spent a little time in provincial communities they would have heard this. Provincial UK said you’re arguing that this is all about GDP – it is not, it is about who governs us being democratically elected and being able to make our own laws and control our own borders.

In the midst of all this there has been an endless post mortem on what Cameron got wrong. What he got wrong was not to call the referendum, but when the EU leadership made a totally pathetic, risible offer to him which essentially meant nothing in terms of immigration control; he should have said “sorry that’s not good enough, I’m going to back Brexit” that was the great mistake of his political career and cost him another 10 years in Downing Street.

@Sally Bettis @Helen Smith Have a little generosity of sprit Sally, you should thank Helen for proving the absolute truth of you opening paragraph. I often get the same kind of responses from Remainers to my reasoned arguments in favour of leaving the EU because … well sombody who supported ‘Leave’ could not possibly be capable of stringing a few words together could they? 🙂
All of which serves to harden my conviction that leaving the EU is the only sane course of action. BTW great comment.

Guest Post:I called for diversity of thought. My peers compared me to a neo-Nazi.


As I took part in a recent student leadership board meeting for the Department of Political Science at Boston University, a group that works to advise faculty on ways to improve, I offered some advice: the department could use more intellectual diversity.

I suggested more debates in the classroom, as opposed to what I had witnessed in my three years at the school, that being an assumption during class that everyone agrees.

I broached my idea after I had sat and respectfully listened to the ideas of others for an hour, but my peers, and a professor and an administrator in the room, were not about to return the favor.

One student chided me that “debate” was too aggressive of a word, that I should use “discussion” instead. Another student, a College Democrat in the room, then compared me to a well-known peer from Boston University who is often regarded as a neo-Nazi and who went to the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, noting “he has sat here in these seats asking for intellectual diversity as well.”

I felt shocked and insulted. I waited to see if either the professor or administrator or any of the other students in the room would defend me. None did. One student suggested conservatives shouldn’t major in political science at Boston University, as they’d have a hard time. The room erupted in laughter.

I wish I could say I was surprised. But after years of experiencing liberal bias, both at Boston University as well as Lehigh University, where I attended before I transferred, it felt like just another day on campus.

To that end, there are plenty of anecdotes I could supply. Here are just a few.

As a freshman, or as the administration likes to say to avoid being sexist— as a “first-year”— I was required to take an English class. My instructor was a teaching assistant, but insisted we call her professor. The morning after President Trump won, she dismissed class early because she could not stop crying. Later that day, she sent out an email giving us information about a designated “safe space” on campus to commiserate the election results. Nevermind that my university has an entire police department to protect it.

During a course I took on political theory, my professor dedicated the entire chapter on fascism to President Trump. He constantly referred to Trump as a fascist, and brought up the Mueller investigation during each class session.

In my statistics class, my professor made an entire exam question that necessitated a final conclusion that Fox News is not a reliable news source. The chi-square test is a statistic that measures the “goodness of fit” between how well an observed distribution fits with the expected distribution. We were given the average amount of gun deaths that occur per year in the United States and the average amount of terrorist attacks that are perpetrated toward Americans per year. We were also given the amount of times CNN, MSNBC, ABC and Fox News reported on each of these issues, and the idea is that one would expect the news organizations to report on the respective issues a proportional amount. When one worked out the math, Fox News’ reporting ended up having the worst goodness of fit, and we had to write that meant they were the least reliable and most unbalanced.

In other courses, I’ve been forced to include my “pronouns” in my introductions at the beginning of the term. After revealing I’m Catholic, I’ve been asked if my priests ever “microaggressed” me. I’ve been told by a climate-alarmist professor that I would face consequences if I ever brought single-use plastic into his classroom.

Were these experiences kind of annoying because I just want to get my degree and not feel like I was sitting in on my professors’ therapy sessions? Yes. Do I feel oppressed? Not even close.

These experiences have given me a beautiful thing — they’ve helped ground me in my conservative beliefs. I’ve always had these values in me, but never cared to dig into them until they felt endangered.

The more my professors and peers mocked, challenged and disputed conservatism, the more time I spent studying and learning the counterarguments against their arguments. I watched videos, read books, listened to podcasts to hear another perspective, and even helped start a Young Americans for Freedom chapter.

Because of my experiences on campus, I have become the proud conservatarian I am today. To my professors and peers, I am certain this was not what you had intended, but thank you anyway.

France to lose EU influence in European election as pro EU parties face wipeout

French president Emmanuel Macron faces crushing defeat in European election (Picture: Express )

The rise of Emmanual Macron and his Euro-federalist party, though a temporary aberration in French politics, has forced a realignment of the traditional parties of government, conservative Les Républicains (Gaullists) and the Socialist Party (PS), and they could both become bit-part players in the two biggest blocs in the chamber. This would mean fewer influential posts for lawmakers and far less say in Parliament over crucial decisions shaping Europe.

The Socialist Party is polling at just five percent, and if it falls below that threshold in the election due in May, it will not have any MEPs in the next European Parliament. An official from the French delegation of the centre-left Socialists and Democrats (S&D) bloc in the legislature told Politico: “The risk is that the left is so deeply divided that there won’t be any French person to represent it in the Parliament.

According to forecasts from Politico, the Socialists would drop to just five seats in the next Parliament, having secured 13 spaces during the last election in 2014.

Christine Revault d’Allonnes-Bonnefoy, a Socialist MEP who has been touted as a possible candidate to lead her party in the upcoming election, said: “We are going to lose a lot of MEPs. What we’re facing is a catastrophe. Right now, we are doing the job, we’re getting on with things. It’s not enough, but I don’t have any magic wand to change things.”

Centre-left parties in France have become fragmented recently, with MEPs such as Isabelle Thomas, Guillaume Balas and Edouard Martin quitting PS to join “Générations-s” – the left-wing party created by former Socialist presidential candidate Benoît Hamon.

Other MEPs including Emmanuel Maurel have joined France Unbowed – the far-left party led by former MEP Jean-Luc Mélenchon.

In an interview with French magazine Le Point last month, Françoise Grossetête said: “Their call to reform Europe has become a mantra, and shows the total ignorance of everything that has been carried out in the last five years when the right has led the governing majority in Europe.”

If current projections prove accurate, the Republicans would have a smaller delegation in the European Parliament than Hungary’s ruling Fidesz party, while the once dominant Socialists would bring in the same number of seats as Denmark’s Social Democrats.

This reduction in French influence would be a huge blow to France, which for years has seen its MEPs push for progress on issues deemed in their country’s interests, including a change to the rules on EU citizens working temporarily in another of the bloc’s countries.

According to Politico’s forecasts, the Republicans are set to win 11 seats in the election, but this is still down from the 20 spots five years ago. What is not being mentioned by mainstream media is that Rassemblement National, the Eurosceptic, nationalist, anti immigration party led by Marine Le Pen look set to make massive gains.
