Trump: London Mayor Has Done ‘Terrible Job’ on Terrorism, Crime

<p>U.S. President Donald J. Trump has issued a damning indictment of London Mayor Sadiq Khan, saying he has done a “terrible job” on terrorism and crime.</p>

<p>“I think allowing millions and millions of people to come into Europe is very, very sad,” <a href=”https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/6766777/donald-trump-sadiq-khan-terrorism-terror/”&gt; President told The Sun</a>, ahead of his working visit to the United Kingdom.</p>

<p>“I look at cities in Europe, and I can be specific if you’d like. You have a mayor who has done a terrible job in London. He has done a terrible job. Take a look at the terrorism that is taking place. Look at what is going on in London. I think he has done a very bad job on terrorism,” he added.</p>

<p>Khan, who (in)famously suggested that terrorism was “part and parcel of living in a great global city”, admitted <a href=”https://twitter.com/GMB/status/872028794797920257″>that there were around 200 former Islamic State fighters</a> at large in the British capital shortly after the London Bridge terror attacks.</p>

<p>He indicated he could not tell the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police to have them all followed because he was only responsible for “15 to 20 percent” of the force’s budget and had to husband his resources wisely to combat <a href=”http://edbutt.blogspot.com/2017/07/what-media-isnt-telling-you-about-teens.html”>crime</a&gt; — although he was able to find money for a £1.7 million “<a href=”https://www.breitbart.com/london/2016/08/16/london-mayor-to-set-up-police-online-hate-crime-hub-in-partnership-with-social-media-firms/”>online hate crime</a>” hub in 2016.</p>

<p>Khan also suggested the <a href=”http://www.greenteethmm.com/terror-catalogue.shtml”>terror threat</a> had nothing to do with <a href=”http://www.greenteethmm.com/immigrant-rapes.shtml”>mass migration</a>, claiming falsely that the London Bridge terrorists “hadn’t come from overseas”. In fact, the three killers were all born abroad in Pakistan and North Africa, and two came to Britain posing as asylum seekers.</p>

America’s Liberal Left Enforcing The Fascist Ideals They Preach Staunchly Against?

Last week,White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was kicked out of a Red Hen restaurant in Virginia because the owner, a pussy hat wearing liberal feminist, did not want to serve anyone who worked for the Trump administration.

In a separate incident Protesters swarmed around Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s home on Friday. Florida’s Attorney General was confronted and heckled at a showing of a Mr. Rogers documentary.

The liberal left  likes to claim it is the side that espouses tolerance, acceptance, and love. That apparently only extends as far as those who identify with the politics of the Obamas, Hillary Clinton and half the shyster lawyers in Washington and Zero Talents in Hollywood and their politics of hypocrisy, however. In a news clip that reeked of practicing double standards and intolerant, extremist bullying to “stand up” against “fascist” ideals, Rep. Maxine Waters called for for those within the Trump administration to face harassment, all for doing their job:

Sarah Sanders, a paying customer to the Red Hen was forced out of the restaurant merely for her political affiliation. Sanders – or her party – did not cause a scene or ruckus to merit being booted out. Sanders was merely removed for the “offense” of working for the Trump administration.  Of the incident, co-owner of the Red Hen, Stephanie Wilkinson said:

This feels like the moment in our democracy when people have to make uncomfortable actions and decisions to uphold their morals.

Wilkinson also said she “would have done the same thing again”.

The Red Hen and Wilkinson conveniently hid behind the veil of morality to claim their “just” decision to enforce their own intolerance upon a member of the Trump administration. Sanders and her group, of course, took the high road, and left politely without causing any drama when asked to leave, the true definition of going high, when they go low – the (hypocritical) mantra of the Obama family.

Showing no shame, protesters targeted Kirstjen Nielsen, Homeland Security Secretary, at her home last week as well. A group of about two dozen protesters swarmed around Nielsen’s house, blasting audio of crying immigrant children and chanting “No justice, no sleep”.

As Nielsen left her home, the protesters hurled vitriolic insults at her: “History will remember you,” one shouted. “You belong in the Hague! You’re a modern-day Nazi!” another jeered.

In both cases liberals across the USA praised the persecution of of these people and callede for incresingly violent action against Trump supporters. How different their attitude is in these cases from the response of the same group to the bakers who refused to make cakes celebrating same sex marriage, having knowingly been targeted by gay activists, and having politely explained that to put a campaign slogan for same sex marriage on the cake would violate their religious principles and having recommended other bakers who would have no such reservations.

It is time we confronted these illiberal bastards with the truth of what they are, they are not liberals but fascists, and the worst kind of fascists at that. The hypocrites try to claim their authoritarian behaviour os motivated by virtuous principles.

As G8,7,6 declines Putin and Xi build alternative global economy


Putin and Xi (Picture: RT)

 

While Germany’ Merkel and France’s Macron lecture the world on politically correct globalism and  President Trump turns his back on Obamaesque arse kissing and lectures former foreign partners of the US on common sense, ahead of a G-7 (or rather, G-6+1 and soon to be 5 + 2 as Italy’s Eurosceptic government sides with Trump,) summit in Quebec, exposing the very real fragmentation of the western liberal consensus continues.

If the US, isolated by the other, quits G7 (as Trump, based on his track record, well might,) that will leave Germany, Japan, UK, France, Italy and Canada. All of these have their own problems which eventually must override the airy – fairy ideas of academics about global approaches to problems. Global approaches may justify lost of expensive jollies for politicians and academics and look great on paper but seldom have any effect on local problems.

Trump’s controversial imposition of import tariffs signals a US crackdown on unfair foreign trade practices, such as dumping cheap, shoddy goods from low labour cost areas in western markets at prices with which domestic manufacturers cannot hope to compete. Meanwhile, almost unreported by mainstream media (link goes to Bloomberg, I picked it up from a financial services news feed that I should not be accessing without a subscription, but hey, ‘fair use’)  an important meeting between China’s leader Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin is of far greater significance than the posturings of the G6 minnows, as, like bad tempered lap dogs, they yap at Trump.

Putin and Xi held their first meeting this year on Thursday ahead of the June 9 Shanghai Cooperation Organization meeting – an eight-member group led by China and Russia – which will be held in the port city of Qingdao. The two governments are in constant touch however. China and Russia are of course leading the move to replace the Petrodollar as the global reserve currency and are playing an increasingly pivotal role in international crises such as Syria and the South China Sea.

Macron Tells Trump:New World Order Starts Here

macron20trudeauMacron and Trudeau – the Canadian leader is taller but more stupid looking
Picture: Zero Hedge

Standing side by side with the other Globalist puppet world leader, Canada’s PC PM Justin bin Trudeau in Ottawa, French Grand-mère baiseur Emmanuel Macron said that he is ready to work with the six other Group of Seven members if U.S. wants to stand alone.

Responding to reports that US President Donal Trump does not care if he is isolated among the group from which Vladimir Putin is already excluded for not following the policies laid down by The Bilderberg Group, Macron commented: “You say President Trump doesn’t care. Maybe. But none of us are eternal and our countries, the commitments taken, go beyond us. None of us who have been elected by the people can say ‘all prior commitments disappear.’ It’s just not true, there is a continuity in state affairs at the heart of international laws. Sometimes we’ve inherited some commitments that weren’t core to our beliefs, but we stuck to them, because that is how it works for nations. And that will be the case for the United States – like for every great democracy”, Macron is reported by Bloomberg to have said.

Macron said he cannot rule out a G-6+1 situation at the upcoming G-7 meeting: “Maybe the U.S. President doesn’t care to be isolated but we don’t care being with the six together,” Macron says, adding they represent the values of a “global force” and an economic market.  Macron, a former Goldman Sachs office boy clearly fancies taking the mantle of globalist in chief from Barack Obama. Like Obama, his achievements now in power are falling way short of promises made when he was campaigning.

The French president then emulated another Obama trick by making a thinly veiled threat that he cannot possible carry out: “the combination of the six markets of the G-7 group is bigger than the U.S. market” and cautioned Trump that “there is no global hegemony if we can organize” adding he will “fight against hegemony”

Russia, China, Iran, India and Brazil may be fighting against US hegemony but the EU is dependent on the US for security and far more vulnerable in a trade war than the US. And Trump is not a man to be intimidated by threats.

In the run up to what looks like being the most confrontational and acrimonious G-7 meeting since the series began in 1975), it is being reported that Germany chancellor Angela Merkel  was already laying down plans for the Toronto showdown among the world’s top political leaders, vowing to challenge Donald Trump on virtually every issue, from trade to climate, and warning that the lack of room for compromise means leaders may fail to agree on a final statement, an unprecedented event at a summit of the world’s 7 most advanced nations.

Addressing German lawmakers on Wednesday, two days before the G-7 summit is due to begin in Toronto Canada, Merkel said that Trump’s “America First” doctrine shows that “we have a serious problem with multilateral agreements.” She added that failure to find common ground could lead to the highly unusual step of host Canada issuing a concluding statement not agreed by all participants, according to Bloomberg. We the punters should not be unduly worried about this, ‘common ground’ at these jollies is usually a meaningless and mealy mouthed compromise which commits everybody to doing absolutely nothing except hammer us for more taxes.

 

The Globalist Pravda Network

Fake News is a phrase that is never far from the lips or fingertips of journalists and television pundits who are supposed to keep us informed about what is happening in the world. But how reliable are those who have appointed themselves the guardians of journalistic integrity.
Not very reliable it seems, if The Guardian, a highbrow UK newspaper is anything to go by.

The paper’s founder C. S. Scott coined the phrase “Comment is free, facts are sacred,” but now the people who write and edit The Guardian’s output don’t seem to know the difference.

During the 2016 US Presidential election campaign Ben Jacobs published an article at The Guardian titled, “Julian Assange gives guarded praise of Trump and blasts Clinton in interview.” Both of these claims are provably false within The Guardian’s own article and are a blatant misrepresentation of Assange’s statements.

Jacobs’ article is not in fact a report of a personal interview with Assange, but is comprised of quotes from an interview that Assange did with La Republica, an Italian newspaper  (full transcript from Repubblica English edition). Either Jacobs or an editor then mixed and matched quotes in order to construct the desired narrative.

Assange did not actually praise or state his support for President-elect Donald Trump. Assange was not even asked his personal opinion on Trump; he was asked what he believed the consequences of a Trump victory would be, as you can read, along with the Wikileaks founder’s views on the other candidate at the linked page.

The Guardian was guilty of similar misreporting of the alleged chemical weapons incidents in Syria, being quick to join the babble of political and media voices condemning the Assad regime before any evidence was available, citing as proof of Assad’s guilt reports from the groups trying to overthrow him. Recently the paper reported “Syria: chemical weapons inspectors barred from Douma site” giving the impression that Russian and Syrian military officials had prevented OPCW (Organisation for the Prevention of Chemical Weapons) inspectors from reaching the site of the latest alleged incident and the remains of what US and NATO officials said were chemical weapon making facilities destroyed by airstrikes as part of an attempt to cover up the war crime.

It later became clear that United Nations mediators had advised the inspectors to stay away from the sites because with rebel units still active in the area their safety could not be guaranteed. When the inspectors did get to the sites they found no evidence of gas attacks on civilians, local doctors said they had treated no patients for the effects of chemical weapons and there was no evidence of toxic nerve agents being manufactured at sites hit by coalition missiles.

The Guardian’s left wing editorial staff regulrly take it upon themselves to warn readers that “right wing organisations” are the only generators of Fake News.

Although the terms left and right have little meaning in political terms these days, they two sides being almost indistinguishable economically and politically and only differing on social policy (in which the left tends to be more authoritarian that the right,) what we see in the news is supporters of the globalist agenda lining up against those who favour localism, those who think diversity is only about skin colour versus those who value individuialism and cultural diversity.

Apparently such ideas are catching on, in alt_media at least:

From The Skripals To Douma, The Globalist Pravda Network Reveals Its True Face

by Rob Slane, The Blog Mire

People living in the Soviet Union had a wonderful phrase to describe the two biggest circulation state-controlled newspapers, Pravda (meaning “truth”) and Izvestia (meaning “news”). There’s no truth in Pravda and no news in Izvestia, was the oft-repeated expression. It is unfortunate that the mainstream media in the Western nations these days don’t have similar sorts of names, since it deprives us of an endless source of amusement in coming up with similarly apposite phrases about them.

It is, however, increasingly clear that on the great issues of the day, you are about as likely to find the truth in them as you would have done in Pravda, although I expect their sports and gardening sections are still relatively reliable. As for the important political and geopolitical issues of the day, I tend to imagine that on the walls next to the desks in the offices of many of these papers and broadcasters are the following instructions:

Rules for Reporting on Global Affairs

Repeat Government line unquestioningly.

If Government line is questioned, accuse those doing the questioning of being Bots, Kremlin-trolls and useful idiots.

If the persistent questioning won’t go away and the Government line is seen to be contradictory and full of holes, bury the issue completely and start posing deep questions, such as “What will Meghan wear?” or “Is there a gender pay gap in midwifery?” or “How much sugar is really bad for you?”

Trump Threaten Syria: Moscow Reponds ‘Are missiles an attempt to destroy alleged chemical attack evidence

With the supremacy of America’s trigger – happy, war – crazy ‘deep state’ increasingly evident in the belligerent rhetoric being aimed at Russia over the latest alleged chemical weapons incident in Syria, which is probably the most blatant false falg attack of many which were intended, but have faied, to provide a pretext for US and NATO intervention to depose the Assad government in Damascus, a shooting war between the west and Russia looks more likely than ever.

There is of course no reliable evidence that any chemical weapon attack orcurred in the past few days, all reports have come from sources linked to ISIS / Al Nusra and accompanying photos and video has been identified as having also been used to support accusations of the Syrian regime. Also allegations claim the substance used was a lethal nerve agent but the video of rescure operations show first aid teams in ordinary clothing (not a hazmat suit in sight,) squirting water into the eyes of suppoed victims, which suggests they were affected by nothing more lethal than tear gas, which is commonly used by civilian police all around the world for riot control.

Responding to <a href="#“>threats from US President Donald Trump, who said Russia should prepare for “nice new and smart missiles” launched by America at Syria, Moscow said if the weapons Trump threatens to use were smart, they would target terrorists.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said in response to Trump’s tweet on Wednesday the US may be seeking to undermine an inspection of the attack site by chemical weapons experts, who are scheduled to investigate in Syria after the incident which sparked the current confrontation between Russia and the US.

“Are the OPCW inspectors aware that smart missiles are about to destroy all evidence of the chemical weapons use on the ground? Or is that the actual plan – to cover up all evidence of this fabricated attack with smart missile strikes, so that international inspectors had no evidence to look for?” Zakharova asked.

Trump’s threat comes after Russia’s ambassador to Lebanon, Alexander Zasypkin reiterated a point previously made by Russia’s President Putin and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, that Russian troops, legitimately deployed in Syria in response to the Syrian government’s request to its allies for assistance in the conflict with Islamic extremists, have legal grounds to shoot down any American missiles attacking targets there, and may do so in case of an attack.

Meanwhile two former British ambassadors questioned claims that Assad is behind the alleged attack, which according to sources controlled by the anti – Assad rebels, killed dozens of Syrians. Peter Ford and Craig Murray expressed doubt, urging the UK government not to rush into a war without proof.

Former British ambassador to Syria Peter Ford, speaking during a heated interview on BBC Radio Scotland, believes that the reported chemical attack in Douma may not have been committed by Assad, contrary to claims by US President Donald Trump, among others.

Chemical warfare inspectors from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons are set to make a trip to Douma to inspect the scene of the alleged chemical attack – but Ford doesn’t think that Syrian leader Bashar Assad will be concerned about the analysis.

“I don’t think Assad is in the least worried that the inspectors will find out his guilt – he is probably not guilty on this occasion,” he said. “We have to engage our brains as well as our emotions here, not be stampeded by those videos which are described as being unverified, but which by dint of being repeated over and over again come to acquire a spurious credibility,” Ford added. “We have to ask ourselves what are the sources in this stampede to war?”

Mainstream media, which is owned by the same investors and hedge funds as own the military contractors and armaments manufacturers that will profit enormously should war break out, are not reporting a word uttered by those sceptical of this latest false flag incident.

Mainstream Media Isn’t Telling You About America’s True Intentions in Syria


We have reported that in spite of Donald Trump’s insistence that the US goal in Syria is to beat ISIS and once that is done US forces can be withdrawn and military aid cease, the Deep State has a very different agenda involving the removal of the Assad regime and the division of that war torn nation into two states. Now we have another perspective on the Syria situation from Israel. It does not contradict our previous report but gives us a bigger picture of how serious the situation is.

Commerzbank, Mozilla, Suspend Facebook Ad Campaigns As Advertisers Start Pulling Out

As we reported yeserday, the backlash against Facebook over the Cambridge Analytics data harvesting story continues to grow. At first it seemed fairly innocuous, some crazy scientist had developed an app that tricked people into granting access to their personal details and activity records. Then it emerged that even though the guy had been naughty, claiming he was collecting datas for research, when in fact his plan was to sell the database to commercial outfits, for which he should have paid Facebook a fee for using their site.

Then it dawned on people that although Cambridge Analytics, which bought the unethically obtained data was being demonised in mainstream media because they numbered among their clients Donald Trump;s 2016 campaign and the Leave campaign in the british EU referendum campaign, but in fact what they did was what facebook’s business is built on, all those quizzes, tests, memes, like buttons etc. are about commecting personal data without users being aware of what is going on. And that started a public backlash (which we reported yesterday).

Now the blight has spread to advertisers: first it was Mozilla, now Germany’s Commerzbank has also suspended a Facebook advertising campaign, Unilever is in the process of pulling what’s left of its campaigns after announcing last year that Facebook adverts were not effective and several agencies have announced their clients will no longer use the platform.

“Brand safety and data security are very important to us”, German daily Handelsblatt quotes Commerzbank brand management chief Uwe Hellmann as saying. “We want to give ongoing investigations enough space, and decide how to proceed at an appropriate time.”

Just a week ago, before the scandal story broke, Commerzbank had launched a large-scale image campaign, which was planned to be broadcast on selected TV channels as well as online, including on Facebook. The campaign is tied to a repositioning of the Frankfurt company’s brand.

Facebook advertisers have threatened to abandon the platform in the wake of the massive data harvesting scandal which began after it was revealed that an app created by two psychologists gathered data on over 50 million Americans and then sold it to political data firm Cambridge Analytics and several others, who used it without consent.

Mark Zuckerberg, co-founder and CEO of the social media giant and a well know world domination wannabe gave several creepy interviews Wednesday after spending three days in hiding, ostensibly with a crisis management team which advised him not give wholly unsatisfactory answers to one of the largest data breaches in history. Naturally the answers he gave questioners were totally unsatisfactory, and were also not believed because Zuckerberg and his company have a track record of priomising one thing and doing the opposite.

ISBA, a British group of advertisers that spend hundreds of millions of pounds a year on Facebook, demanded answers. It is understood that some of the 3,000 brands it handles, which include those of the consumer goods companies Unilever and P&G, will not tolerate association with Facebook if it emerges that users’ data has found its way into the hands of brokers and political campaigners without authorisation. Sources close to the trade body said that if the company’s answers were unsatisfactory, advertisers might spend their money elsewhere. ISBA will meet Facebook executives this week.

Other major clients, such as Mozilla, the the Firefox browser company, have already pulled out, or as a spokesperson said, have “pressed pause” on Facebook advertising. In a scathing post, Mozilla said that “when Facebook takes stronger action in how it shares customer data, specifically strengthening its default privacy settings for third party apps, we’ll consider returning.” Until then, “Mozilla will advertise elsewhere.”

Facebook knows a great deal about Mozilla’s two billion users, perhaps more intimate information than any other company does. They know everything we click and like on their site, and know who our closest friends and relationships are, because despite its denials, Facebook is known to install tracking cookies on the device of anyone who visits a page with a Facebook ‘like’ button. Because of its scale, Facebook has become one of the most convenient platforms to reach an audience for all companies and developers, whether a multibillion corporation or a not-for-profit.

It is believed that Facebook took steps to limit developer access to friends’ data beginning in 2014, but can any=thing Facebook reveals about its business be trusted (sic)?. When we consider the assurance was given after Facebook started its relationship with Cambridge University Professor Aleksandr Kogan, whose decision to share data he collected from Facebook with Cambridge Analytica is behind the current scandal.

We believe still more will be revealed about Facebook’s lax attitude to privacy and ethics, for example its current default settings leave access open to a lot of data – particularly with respect to settings for third party apps.

Meanwhile, Facebook shares continue to slide – falling approximately 8.6% in three trading sessions and down again on Thursday premarket as investors – particularly “ethical” investment funds – reconsider their decision to hold the increasingly toxic company.

Who’s Really Behind Snopes, Facebook’s New “Fact Checkers”
