Salisbury Poisoning Review

British Government accused Russia of attempted murder and announced a series of punitive measures against Russia, including the expulsion of diplomats. 28 other countries responded in support of the UK and 153 Russian diplomats were expelled.

Dawn Sturgess died 8th July 2018 aged 44

According to official UK sources and the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), on 4 March 2018, Sergei Skripal, a former Russian military officer and double agent for the UK’s intelligence services, and his daughter Yulia Skripal were poisoned in Salisbury, England, with a Novichok nerve agent known as A-234.

The two remained in hospital in a critical condition, with Yulia regaining consciousness after 3 weeks and her father, a month after that. A police officer was also taken into intensive care after being contaminated when he went to Sergei Skripal’s house.

On 12th March 2018 the British Government accused Russia of attempted murder and announced a series of punitive measures against Russia, including the expulsion of diplomats. 28 other countries responded in support of the UK and 153 Russian diplomats were expelled. Scotland Yard said they believed a two-man hit squad, Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, was behind the Salisbury attack in which the door handle of Skripal’s home was smeared with the powerful nerve agent which was kept in a perfume bottle.

Russia denied the accusations and responded similarly to the expulsions and “accused Britain of the poisoning.” t

The suspects were caught on CCTV in Salisbury at 11.58am on Sunday March 4, “moments before the attack”, police said.

It is understood Petrov and Boshirov stayed in the City Stay Hotel in Bow, East London, during their time in the UK.

The pair are thought to have left the UK the morning after the attack.  
Police searched the hotel room of where the two Russian agents had stayed on 4th May 2018 and found minute traces of Novichok.

The UK’s Crown Prosecution Service said there was enough evidence to charge them with conspiracy to murder.

On 30 June 2018 a similar poisoning of two British nationals in Amesbury seven miles from Salisbury, involved the same nerve agent. Charlie Rowley found the nerve agent in a perfume bottle and gave it to his girlfriend, Dawn Sturgess, who then subsequently sprayed it on.

Within 15 mins, she was taken ill and died in hospital on 8 July 2018, but Mr. Rowley, who had also come in contact with the poison survived.British police believe this incident was not a targeted attack, but a result of the way the nerve agent was disposed of after the poisoning in Salisbury.

Dawn Sturgess was aged 44 and left behind aggrieved family and friends.

Novichok agent

Novichok is a series of nerve agents developed by the Soviet Union and Russia between 1971 and 1993. Russian scientists who developed the agents claim they are the deadliest nerve agents ever made, with some variants possibly five to eight times more potent than VX, and others up to ten times more potent than soman.

Quitters and the Rise of Anti-Semitism

Nazis are Creatures from the Left[/caption] Mid February 2019 witnessed nine Labour MPs resigning the Labour Party with eight of them joining with three Conservative MPs to form the Independent Group. The group has formed in opposition to the Labour and Conservative parties’ stance on Brexit. The one Labour MP who declined to join this group was apparently supportive of leaving the EU. It is interesting that this should happen within about 6 weeks of the Brexit leaving date of 29th March 2019. However, there was another, very important reason for all nine (with possibly more on the way) leaving the Labour Party and that was due to the prevalence of persistent Anti-Semitism in Labour that has arisen since Jeremy Corbyn took over the leadership. Now, I have some sympathies for Jeremy Corbyn in this regard because I do not believe that what has happened was of his making, but rather due as a consequence of the give-away cost of joining the Labour Party before he became leader.

Rise of Anti-Semitism in the Labour Party

The dropping of Labour Party membership to £2 (currently £3) for young people and students encouraged a surge in intake and swelled Labour’s card carrying members to over 500,000. However, ideology and tolerance were never qualifying factors for getting signed up. It was just a policy of “come in and be one of us. Join our growing army and take back control of our country. Socialism is the way forward.” Jeremy Corbyn, with this fresh intake was propelled from being a mere backbencher into becoming the iconic symbol of socialism in Britain and potential its Prime Minister. The presence of anti-Semitism within the Labour Party is an ugly carbuncle that will not go away because these types are now entrenched within the Party and have the weight of numbers on their side.  Many of its young and new members are Muslim and many others associate with the Far Left Momentum Group which boasts to have 40,000 of those members. That is an army with a significant number of anti-Semites in their ranks. The anti-Semitism seems to have two fold basis; one is a fundamental hatred of Jews and the other is vehement opposition to the existence of the Jewish state of Israel.

The Devil’s Prongs – Islam and Socialism

Meaning of Politics

Politics is about the relational dynamics of the individual (the fundamental unit) with the collective (the state/ community). Simplistically, Rightism is pro-individualism and the supremacy and freedom of the individual. Leftism is pro-state and for extending its power with individual freedom being subordinate.

Islam and Socialism

The word “Islamaphobia” is an invented word to enslave the weak minded and suppress dissident voices and apostates. It is a term being used to gag and persecute those who object to an extreme authoritarian ideology colonizing state after state and compelling individuals within those states to kneel to Allah and his Prophet. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0EYg8Tgrh0o Both Islam and Socialism require the power of the state to enforce the policies and rules as is deemed fit. Both are authoritarian in nature. It is thus hardly surprising that Islam should find open ears and minds to its puritanical orthodoxy among hard-line socialists. Both use identitarianism to discriminate between who benefits and who suffers. With socialism it is about the oppressed versus the oppressor and with Islam it is Muslims versus Kaffirs. Historically, it has been estimated that over 200 million people died in India alone due to the brutality of Islamic regimes. The barbarism and enslavement of captured came with a high death toll in most places. In Africa 120 million died. Black boys often suffered penectomy and castration and bled to death in agony. Jews, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists and Pagans were slaughtered in their millions. One million white slaves were taken from Europe. From the trail of bones found by explorers, it seems there was only a one in five chance of making it to the slave ships that carried black people off to the Americas. The experiment with socialism in the 20th Century witnessed the barbaric destruction of an estimated 170 million lives. The numbers can only be estimated because many just disappeared. In every country it has been tried, Socialism has brought economic ruin, oppression and death.

Nazis Find an Ideological Home

The National Socialists of the 20th Century were fundamentally socialist with doctrines that aligned to Marxist thinking. It was always a creature of the Left in spite of the false spin that is presented to the credulous masses. Many National Socialists expressed a disdain for capitalism. As with other forms of socialism, National Socialism used the power of the state to enforce its will and to exert social control over all citizens and institutions.

In National Socialism: National is the adjective; Socialism is the noun.

Clash of Utopias

With dynamic forces causing serious rifts due to conflicts over Brexit and a significant number of its members who possess a natural hatred of Jews and the existence of Israel, the Labour Party is on the point of splitting irreparably. The peril that Europe currently faces with mass immigration has allowed a virtual invasion force of millions of Muslims to move onto European soil to stay. The process is called Hijra and is about spreading the doctrine of Islam through migration and out-breeding native populations until a Global Caliphate is established. In the case of Socialism it is about establishing a Socialist Utopia. Utopias are like Gods. They provide promise of the ideal society for their disciples, but the socialist utopia is not the global caliphate. They cannot live side by side. One may stand but only at the cost of the other. Whatever may come, it promises massive suffering and many more disappeared people, not just in the tens of millions but probably far worse. It is a very bleak prospect for all and should be resisted, but with the pathetically weak leadership that exists it is looking more and more like a lost game.]]>

Guns in UK Homes

Basics of Handgun Legislation in the UK

Following the Dunblane massacre in 1996, the UK Government passed the Firearms (Amendment) Act 1997 and the Firearms (Amendment) (No. 2) Act 1997, defining “short firearms” as Section 5 Prohibited Weapons. This effectively banned private possession of handguns (except for Northern Ireland). However, members of the public continued to own sporting rifles and shotguns, subject to licensing. There are 1.3 million licensed shotguns in the UK which amounts to about 1 in 64 people. However, there are also an additional 535,000 legally licensed ‘firearms’ which are not shotguns.

THE KALERGI PLAN FOR EUROPEAN GENOCIDE

However, since 1996, the social climate has changed considerably in some areas. The demographic has shifted so significantly that London and other cities are no longer inhabited by traditional British people. In fact many are becoming increasingly dominated by those who’s culture is hostile to that of the host nation.

 

This is being repeated in much of Europe and people are waking up to the fact that they are being replaced and all that made up those people’s society, their history, their traditions and their values, are set to be swept away. Naturally, there are the more prominent individuals who are speaking up and taking action. However, the plan to replace the European people was planned a long time ago through the Kalergi Plan. 

CLICK HERE TO READ MORE ABOUT The Kalergi Genocide Plan

The elites that are pushing this know and expect a reaction and so we have seen the rise and enforcement of Hate Speech laws. These are designed to shut down any complaint about what is going on. Dissidents will find themselves arrested, jailed, threatened and their lives put in danger. People are being subdued due to fear of being labelled a racist, a xenophobe and an Islamaphobe. 

 

The police are part of the system. They are operate as tools of the elite and can no longer be trusted to protect its citizens. Instead, they have been found to be used as weapons of oppression to silence those that dare raise a voice.

We have seen thousands of British girls being raped and authorities being prepared to do nothing except let it happen. The media, the politicians and the legislature have conspired to suppress action against those who would harm the most vulnerable. Instead, they chose to call anyone who calls them out as bigots and hatemongers when all they are doing is hiding their own crimes against humanity.

Hundreds of dissidents have found themselves being raided, arrested and charged for having the courage to speak up. The more prominent ones have been jailed and have suffered attacks while in jail. They have been threatened with murder and serious assault and these threats have been extended to their families.

Given that we no longer can rely on the police to protect dissidents effectively, is it not time to allow such individuals to legitimately keep firearms in their homes?

Globalists versus the Awake

French Fuel Protests

[gallery ids="46401,46411,46412" type="slideshow"]

French President Emanuel Macron’s approval rating fell to 23 percent according to a poll conducted since the start of the fuel protest on 17th November 2018. This is down six points on the previous month.

80% of people support the protests, but Macron’s arrogance and contempt for the French people has done nothing to quell growing antipathy among the populous.

Riots1Riots5Descent into Chaos

[WATCH VIDEO AT THE END]

While attempting to impose a punitive carbon tax on those with diesel cars, he reduces tax for the top 1% which, of course, benefits his stinkingly rich corporate employers. The current rise will not be a one off tax increase but is part of strategy to force people to stop using fossil fueled vehicles. It comes after a period where the economic wellbeing of many people, especially those living in rural areas, has been in marked decline. This tax has the effect of ‘twisting the knife’ for those who are already struggling.

Unfortunately, Macron shows no intent to withdraw his economic attack on French people, but rebukes them when they complain, referring to them as “Thugs” and threatening to come after protest organizers for defying his will. The delay in its implementation is just that, a delay and not a withdrawal. He is passionate about his cause and will not be stopped by the will and concerns of the French people whom he is meant to serve.

Macron, a Rothschild banker type and a hardened globalist clearly illustrates his lack of appreciation for the reality facing much of the French population. He is personally in a different economic league, but his combative and demeaning language shows what contempt he has for ordinary French people.

It does make me doubt the legitimacy of the election that put him in power. With Globalists, we are dealing with extremely powerful people with almost limitless resources and no bottom to their ruthlessness and depravity. They are driven by an unhealthy certainty, that they know what is best and what has to be done. Their convictions make them into religious zealots. They control most of the media. They control entertainment. They control most of the politicians. They have influential academics controlling much of the education system. Who knows, they may well have organized the 911 attack on the twin towers and the scandalous wars that followed. Fixing elections is nothing compared to the villainy they are capable of. There are many examples of leaders being prepared to exterminate large numbers of people as a means to maintain their power. The road to their version of Utopia is one that is traversed across a sea of real blood and tens of thousands of corpses that line the way. Let us hope that it does not degrade to that, but being among a mass of people is no protection especially if the contempt of leaders regards that mass as being made up of insects and “thugs”.

Brexit and UN Migration Compact

In Britain, while everyone’s attention is diverted to the debacle of Brexit that looks like a sell-out of the British people, few are paying any attention to the UN Migration Compact. Running to form, Theresa May will undoubtedly sign Britain up to this atrocious commitment that at least 18 prominent countries have already shied away from [including the US].

The Compact is a part of Agenda 2030 to replace the populations of Europe with migrant stock and will see the end of borders as we know them. It will also mean that a full-scale revolution will be the only way to stop the implementation of Sharia Law in the next few decades.

Descent into Tyranny

Most people know nothing because their sources of news are poisoned by corporate orchestrated propaganda and extremist ideologues. Politicians are puppets. Celebrities, many of whom are empty-headed narcissists, have nothing intelligent to say and just spout emotional rhetoric. It is only the independent journalists and organizations that seem to provide any semblance of truth and reality and even they are being persecuted in a drive to eliminate them.

With insufficient or erroneous knowledge being peddled, people will use their own emotions and beliefs to draw their own conclusions. This may lead to them (a) leaving it to their ‘betters’; (b) unwittingly siding with corporatist wishes; or (c) rejecting it all as lies.

At some point, pressure may build towards creating a social schism with dissidents being cited as the over-arching threat. Dissident voices are regularly condemned as xenophobes, racists, misogynists and any other pejorative term that comes to mind.

We see also the rise and increasing prominence in zombified individuals who have acquired the label “NPC” (Non Player Character from the world of computer gaming). These merely scream and repeatedly chant meaningless and ill-founded rhetorical claims. Dissidents are being linked with the illusory ‘Far Right’ and being warned against for their hate speech. They are being used to be blamed virtually every time a terrorist incident occurs and for inciting hatred. Dissidents are rebranded as the biggest social malaise facing society. All of it is a distraction from who the real villains are at the top of the food chain.

End Game

Make no mistake, arrests and persecutions for wrong think have already begun and will only worsen in the future. Moves to shutdown alternative media is well underway and the tech giants are willing to oblige. The outcome will be as it almost always is – control of a population through prejudice and persecution and the liquidation of any ordinary folk who dare to doubt the reality they are presented with.

Rather pessimistically, I see the road to ruin and hell on Earth as being an inevitability, unless we are all micro-chipped and transformed into computer controlled zombies to ensure our wayward thoughts are ‘medicated’ against.

Nigel Farage – The Ignorant

Farage is good on rhetoric: low on knowledge [caption id="attachment_46355" align="alignleft" width="300"] Joining Forces to oppose Globalism[/caption] [caption id="attachment_46358" align="alignleft" width="300"] Old and New[/caption]                   After Gerard Batten, leader of UKIP, appointed Tommy Robinson as one of his advisers he came under immediate fire from former leader Nigel Farage who set in motion a move to oust him. Nigel Farage, by his reaction, laid bare his ignorance of Islamic ideology and gave cause to expose his poor leadership qualities which brought his former party to the point of bankruptcy. On the issue of Islam, Farage needs to read more as he speaks from a position of virtual illiteracy. In fact, whilst he is entertaining with his rhetoric, he has little substance and knows actually very little about a lot of things he ought to know. He is credited with bringing about Brexit, but did so from a position of having no plan to bring it about. He ignored the Flexit Plan that had been formulated many years before simply because he did not understand it and it was more enjoyable and glamorous to score points off of despotic EU political figures.

[videopress TPRUlZIF]

Fear of the Right

The fear of being labelled “Right Wing” needs to be boldly challenged. Its association with Fascism and Nazism is a long running lie as both Mussolini and Hitler were aligned with the Left. The policies of their respective political parties pushed for increased power through state control. This is a true mark of the Left since the Right seek small state. Nigel Farage should know this and should be at the forefront of calling out one of the biggest deceptions of modern history. He does not because he does not understand and thus ducks for cover in fear of being tarnished as a racist and xenophobe and closet Nazi. Pinning the acts of atrocious and murderous regimes has kept right wingers subdued while allowing the Left to work on initiating their next ‘genocide-waiting- to happen’.

Genocides of Socialism/ Communism

In case anyone has missed it. Deaths in the 20th Century score China’s Mao Tse Tung as the worst 100 – 160 million; Stalin’s USSR 60 million an Hitler’s Nazis at 6 million. These figures are estimates because no one bothered to count the exact numbers. These were the worst ones. There are many other examples of deadly socialism, but the Nazis were allocated to the Right because of their potent anti-Semitism even though there are plenty of examples of this in Left wing politics today.

Threat to the Establishment

[caption id="attachment_46361" align="alignleft" width="300"] No Racism Found[/caption] Nigel Farage is a part of the establishment like a rogue Thatcherite who has been a bit annoying. By contrast, Tommy Robinson is a threat to the establishment. They fear him because he is switched on and highlights the corrupt abandonment of the country’s children to rape gangs and paedophilic predators. That is why they persecute him and wish him dead. No doubt they have such a dastardly plan ready to initiate and would have executed him were it not for the roving eye of current White House administration. There is a hole in British politics – none of the main parties actually connect with people except for those who are manipulated and mind controlled by the media and the circuses of sport and TV soaps and scandals. Many people have become zombified. It has seen the emergence of the term ‘sheeple’ being used to describe the docility and lack of awareness; and the term Non-Player-Character (NPC) as label for those who aggressively protest to protect the status quo while thinking they are doing otherwise.

A Few of the Many Problems of Islam

  • Hundreds of Mosques – no other religion has expanded its influence
  • Sharia Law to replace British law in the long term
  • End of Free Speech
  • Threat to minorities (e.g. gays) and women
  • Wife beating allowed
  • Severe penalties for blasphemy and apostasy
  • Compelled Islamic religion taught in schools
  • Population conformity to Islamic way of life and culture
  • Rise in anti-Semitism
  • Elimination of non-‘children of the book’ religions and atheism
  • Constant social conflicts – Shiites and Sunnis are in a state of civil war

Human Touch

Importance of Touch If there is one thing that I have noticed in my brief passage through time on planet Earth and that is the importance of human contact, particularly in the young and vulnerable. The warmth and feel of another human being provides a sense of protection, comfort and assurance, but also offers mutuality and purpose. Any form of human physical contact is a form of touching. It can range from holding hands to hugging and kissing. As with any human interaction the context of an encounter is important. Intimate sexual activity is not the same as patting someone on the back.

Chimes Media video: Human Touch

The Chimes Media “Human Touch” video focuses on how vulnerable children clamour for human contact. The original photos shown are of children in a Vietnamese orphanage. The narrative comments on the sad abandonment of babies highlighting how children hunger for attention from anyone who will give it to them. This is not a choice that they make. It is biologically driven. [videopress FAqhLBFl]

Touch for Young Children

[gallery ids="46325,46328" type="rectangular"]   [gallery ids="46326,46327" type="rectangular"]   The importance of touch cannot be overstated. Many actions of touch tend to be spontaneous and do not demand anything verbal to make it happen. Touch is a vital stimulus. It greatly helps with the development of brains and social skills as well as helping children to bond. Touch enables physical growth and its absence can prove fatal especially for babies and small children. Tragically, it has been found (because this has actually happened) that babies that are never touched simply stop growing and die. Those babies are not voluntarily giving up on life. Their physiological design shuts them down. [caption id="attachment_46324" align="alignleft" width="225"] This little boy was found in a toilet. His umbilical chord saved him from being flushed.[/caption]

Touch For All

From the outset, it is a usual practice for newborns to be placed on top of their mother’s stomach or to be cradled n the arms of carers. Physical contact boosts the immune system and can lower blood pressure. Consequently, it reduces diseases especially those associated with the heart and blood. One study on women found that receiving more hugs from their partners led to lower heart rates and lower blood pressure and, of course, it produces similar benefits for men too. Heart-to-heart hugs can feel satisfying and invoke the release of oxytocin even when hugging a friend, family member, or pet.

Touch and Play-fighting

[caption id="attachment_46333" align="alignnone" width="300"]M4034S-4211 Father & Son Play Fight[/caption] Touch is positive for animals as well. Rabbits that are given physical contact and affection have been found to have 60% less chance of developing coronary problems. Other mammals are not as dissimilar to humans as we might think. For example, rats, as with most other mammals, have been found to be quite social animals that engage in play fighting. Children exposed to play fighting learn to control their physical strength and measure its application according to different situations. They will usually grow up to be healthy, more fulfilled and happier individuals.

Unnatural Touch

Generally, both parties get something out of touching provided it is natural, wanted and not forced. There is a distinction between touching that is harmful and that which is beneficial. It would not be right for a twenty year old to cling to its mother in the same way as a two year old would. Likewise, there would be something wrong if a toddler decided to give intimate kisses to an adult. That would suggest the child had been subject to sexual abuse training (as when children are placed under the control of paedophiles).

Tyranny of Ideology

[caption id="attachment_46336" align="alignleft" width="192"] Feminism = True Hate[/caption]

Unfortunately, one of the scourges of our time, which is arguably the most abusive and pernicious aspects of human behaviour, is the pathology of Political Correctness aka Cultural Marxism. This way of thinking tends to ditch context and instead embraces the notion that all forms of touching are abuse. Touch is interpreted as a mechanism by which one person seeks to exert power and control over another. It re-interprets mutuality and non-verbal interaction into being a malevolent act regardless of the reality. The more egregious proponents of this way of thinking will insist that human interaction become subject to the absurdity of formalities and demand legal contracts. Virtually every aspect of human behaviour should be approved. Spontaneity is taboo. Love is a social construct and touching is a tool of control. Affection becomes a cue for exploitation by one person over another and is just one more method of how one group maintains its power over another. This intrusive malevolence is a stark example of totalitarian tyranny that seeks to intimately govern what we say or even what we look at. One branch of Marxism are the radical feminists who are infamous for frothing at the mouth and proclaiming that society is controlled by the Patriarchy under which women are universally controlled. They are quick to suppress any gathering of men who meet to discuss the myriad of very real problems males face such as high suicide rates, boys failing academically or paternity rights. Indeed, the PC Gestapo (social justice warriors) are the ultimate killjoys and winey wingers when it comes to monitoring males in case they should use their ‘male gaze’ to mind rape helpless feminists or deny seating on a train by man-spreading their legs to improve their comfort. It is not just that their assumptions are grossly prejudicial and hate-filled, but that they employ methods that are pathological. Their choice of using any means necessary to exact political control over the personal means that lying, cheating, bullying and violence are all legitimate tactics to busy-body their way into people’s lives. The affects of their actions, result in dead relationships; dead emotions and dead people.   [caption id="attachment_46332" align="alignleft" width="300"] Families Together Make Happier Children[/caption]

Protect the Right of Human Touch

It is long overdue that we stand together against these delusional and authoritarian bigots that are all-too-ready to slam any form of contact as being abusive and oppressive. They refuse to recognize what a treasure human contact is and how it is common to millions of other animals as well as humans. It is not a part of some imagined oppression or tyranny. The true tyrants are those who want to eliminate it and, if they succeed it will destroy something that is very precious and human.

Boy Ripped Apart by Bear Saving Young Cousin

Brave Rodion Burakov sacrifices himself while saving little cousin from bear in Russia

A courageous 15-year-old boy, Rodion Burakov, was practically ripped apart by a ferocious bear but still managed to rescue his little cousin as the two faced the animal alone in the middle of a forest in Russia’s eastern Kamchatka Region.

[caption id="attachment_46275" align="alignleft" width="300"] Brave Rodion Sacrifices himself to save cousin[/caption] Rodion, 15, and his cousin Boris, who is two years younger, lived in the tiny remote village of Lazo. On Monday 5th Nov 2018, they went to take a steam bath, located at the weather station where the father of one of the boys worked. The journey itself was long and challenging – the teenagers had to cross 14km of wilderness. Kamchatka is known for its large brown bear population. Since the area has yet to see any snow or freezing temperatures this year, animals that normally would be hibernating are out roaming around instead. Locals say that in this state, bears become extremely dangerous. Sometimes they even approach towns and villages in search of food. They can attack humans, too.

Just last August, bears killed a 23-year-old man who worked at the local nature reserve. An encounter with the fierce beast often means certain death for anyone, let alone a couple of unarmed teenagers.

Bear Attacked Boris First

The boys made it to the station safely, but on their way back, they weren’t so lucky. They ended up facing a bear in the middle of nowhere. They were completely alone, and there was no one to help them. They could have attempted to make a run for it, but the village was still about 5km away. The bear savagely attacked little Boris, but his older cousin didn’t hesitate to jump to the rescue and defend Boris. The move distracted the bear, and Boris seized the opportunity to flee. Wounded on his hand and head, the bloodied boy ran as fast as he could until he reached the fire station in his village. Locals commented on how deeply distressed and shaken he was. “The kid was practically silent, he was in shock,” chief local official Vladimir Voytsekhovsky told the media.

Hunters Dispatched

The boy did, however, tell them what happened. Hunters were immediately dispatched to track down the bear and find Rodion. The animal was found at the same spot and was put down as he was burying the dead teenager’s body. [caption id="attachment_46284" align="alignleft" width="150"] Rodion’s Remains Found[/caption]

Officials say that Rodion didn’t stand a chance. The bear tore off the boy’s limbs and fractured his skull.

Boris, meanwhile, was successfully stitched up in the hospital, and is expected to recover. “I lived and worked here for 35 years. I don’t remember any instances of a bear mauling a child. This wild case is a first one,” Voytsekhovsky noted.  

Chimes Comment

It is brave young men like Rodion that are huge losses to us all. What an incredible boy. God bless him.

BRIEFING ON BREXIT

Tony Abbott
Former Australian Prime Minister[/caption] Former Australian Prime Minister, Tony Abbott, wrote an article in The Spectator magazine concerning the beleaguered Brexit issue. Sometimes, someone from the outside looking in can see things more clearly than those up to their necks in it. I agree with his observation that the vote for Brexit was a vote for self confidence in Britain’s belief in itself. Unfortunately, it seems that the British Government does not share that sort of confidence, It is a pity that they seemed too arrogant to heed the advice of an expert negotiator, Donald Trump. Instead they “”seem determined to broker a deal from a position of weakness. The Spectator & Tony Abbott

Tony Abbott: How to save Brexit

It’s pretty hard for Britain’s friends, here in Australia, to make sense of the mess that’s being made of Brexit. The referendum result was perhaps the biggest-ever vote of confidence in the United Kingdom, its past and its future. But the British establishment doesn’t seem to share that confidence and instead looks desperate to cut a deal, even if that means staying under the rule of Brussels. Looking at this from abroad, it’s baffling: the country that did the most to bring democracy into the modern world might yet throw away the chance to take charge of its own destiny.

 

Let’s get one thing straight: a negotiation that you’re not prepared to walk away from is not a negotiation — it’s surrender. It’s all give and no get. When David Cameron tried to renegotiate Britain’s EU membership, he was sent packing because Brussels judged (rightly) that he’d never actually back leaving. And since then, Brussels has made no real concessions to Theresa May because it judges (rightly, it seems) that she’s desperate for whatever deal she can get.

 

The EU’s palpable desire to punish Britain for leaving vindicates the Brexit project. Its position, now, is that there’s only one ‘deal’ on offer, whereby the UK retains all of the burdens of EU membership but with no say in setting the rules. The EU seems to think that Britain will go along with this because it’s terrified of no deal. Or, to put it another way, terrified of the prospect of its own independence.

 

But even after two years of fear-mongering and vacillation, it’s not too late for robust leadership to deliver the Brexit that people voted for. It’s time for Britain to announce what it will do if the EU can’t make an acceptable offer by March 29 next year — and how it would handle no deal. Freed from EU rules, Britain would automatically revert to world trade, using rules agreed by the World Trade Organization. It works pretty well for Australia. So why on earth would it not work just as well for the world’s fifth-largest economy?

CHIMES COMMENT by James Williams

I personally visited some 10,000 houses in Portsmouth during the 2016 referendum campaign. Of course, I did not meet every single person in every house, but I did meet quite a number and I can tell you that everyone I met seemed to be thinking pretty hard about what Brexit or no Brexit meant. My overwhelming opinion was that, these ‘ordinary people’ of Portsmouth were not stupid. Many were seriously concerned about what it all would come to. I thus totally reject the claim that one side was stupid or flippant. At the end of the day, it is these sort of people who carry the full brunt of things if and when wrong decisions are made. Unlike, some of the comfortable classes that do not have to worry so much about getting mugged if they happen to slip out at 9pm to get some cat food. Historically people, like those that live in Portsmouth have been through wars both home and abroad and many of their ancestors did not survive. Britain is set to leave the EU on 29th March 2019 with or without a deal, but Tony Abbott offered 5 points of advice in his article:
  1. Using rules agreed by the World Trade Organization, Britain set its own rules. As such, it can declare that it will not impose any tariff or quota on European produce and would recognise all EU product standards. That would mean there need to be no border controls for goods being imported from Europe.
  2. The UK should declare that Europeans already living here should have the right to remain permanently — and, of course, become British citizens if they wish.
  3. There should continue to be free movement of people from Europe into Britain — but for work, not welfare.
  4. No ‘divorce bill’ whatsoever should be paid to Brussels.
  5. There is no need on Britain’s part for a hard border with Ireland. Britain wouldn’t be imposing tariffs on European goods, so there’s no money to collect. Technology allows for smart borders, so that eliminates the need for a ‘Checkpoint Charlie’ arrangement. Also, Irish citizens retain the right to live and work in the UK in an agreement that long predates EU membership.
If the EU decides to get uppity about this kind of independence and try to punish the UK with tariffs, they are restricted by WTO rules that place caps on retaliatory action of 4-5%. Whatever they do, we have used to be a country that coped with threats and, we have a much larger ally across the pond that would be only too eager to a trade deal. In fact, Mr. Trump has already got one he ‘baked earlier’.]]>

Bulgaria Is Going Very Bad and the West Isn’t Noticing

Brutal Journalist Murder of Viktoria Marinova has drawn global attention

Bulgaria doesn’t stand out much against the backdrop of all other major international worries for the West but its situation warrants closer attention in order to avoid potential trouble down the road.

Marinova’s murder occurred right after as a regional TV station head and host she aired a report on a large-scale corruption case involving EU funds. As with other inconvenient stories for Bulgaria’s ruling oligarchy, the case has been ignored by the country’s mainstream media. Following the arrest of a suspect in Germany and their repatriation, Bulgaria’s leadership eagerly declared the horrific murder a “regular” criminal offence. It was not a contract killing of an inconvenient journalist, if you can believe it. Whatever the case, Marinova’s murder once again put Bulgaria in the international spotlight as “the poorest and most corrupt” EU member state.

Bulgaria is going very bad

[caption id="attachment_46252" align="alignleft" width="300"] Bulgaria on the Map[/caption]           Those labels aren’t untrue but the reality is much more gruesome. Bulgaria is going very bad, and nobody in the rest of the West seems to be noticing. Despite the tirelessness of its leadership, Bulgaria hasn’t been able to top the concerns list of the European Union and the United States. This is probably due to the many worse for the West all occurring all over the world map. The grave failure of Bulgaria’s principal allies and partners to notice its troubles, however, may cause serious trouble for the entire West further down the road. The Balkan country’s geopolitical position lends it greater importance than its own potential does. Brussels, Washington, and Berlin simply aren’t justified in taking Bulgaria’s Western belonging for granted. Apart from the worsening international environment, there are two main reasons Bulgaria’s deteriorating domestic situation remains largely unnoticed by the EU and the US. First, Bulgaria’s economy has been growing by nearly 4% per year since 2015, coupled with macroeconomic stability in its state finances. For the first time, in 2018 Bulgaria’s GDP surpassed the benchmark of BGN 100 billion (EUR 50 billion or USD 56 billion). That is not as impressive as it appears since it is only 0.3% of the EU’s total GDP. However, without the oligarchy’s abuses Bulgaria’s growth could easily have doubled. Second, the oligarchy-dominated regime in Sofia is docile within the EU. It goes along with the desires of Berlin provided there is no challenge to the high-level corruption and embezzlement. That differentiates Bulgaria from other former communist Eastern European EU member states who stir major trouble for Brussels. In Hungary and Poland, Orban and Kaczynski have styled themselves as global pioneers of the “illiberal democratic order”. The Borisov regime in Sofia has had no such ideological ambitions, and finds those of Budapest and Warsaw perplexing. Its main concern has been preserving and expanding the status and wealth of the post-communist oligarchy against the backdrop of Bulgaria’s EU membership. In international politics the regime kowtows to Brussels, Washington, Moscow, Ankara, and Berlin while seeking to steer clear of hard choices among them.

Wherever you look, corruption and villainy is the norm. The bigger the stakes, the more prevalent it is.  The ordinary citizen exists to be screwed over and is expected to vote in these crooks each time, if they are given a vote at all. It is not simply about Free Market vs Socialism. It is a question of hierarchies and the religion of entitlement that convinces people in power to hold on to their privilege and entitlements as their divine right. When you see the tens of millions of dollars that go to funding the political campaigns in the US, you can see how lying, cheating, murder and impoverishment of whole communities is the fall out for evil to maintain control. Psychopaths use our empathy against us. Images of suffering children are a favourite for getting us to hand over cash and votes. FOR FULL EUROPEAN VIEWS ARTICLE CLICK HERE]]>
