Lauren Southern Speaks at European Parliament in Protest of Recent UK Actions
UK MEP Janice Atkinson slams UK Government. “Britain is no longer a bastion of free speech.”
Populist UK MEP Janice Atkinson of the Europe of Nations and Freedom (ENF) parliamentary group slammed the British government in a press conference at the European Parliament on Wednesday over the recent treatment of Canadian journalist and activist Lauren Southern.
Ms. Atkinson, who serves as a Vice-President of the ENF, a group which has included Dutch firebrand Geert Wilders, former French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen, Italian La Lega leader Matteo Salvini, and others, slammed the UK government for detaining and refusing entry to Ms. Southern under the UK terrorism act. The detention and banning of Southern came only days after the three-day detention of Identitarian activist Martin Sellner and American author and political commentator Brittany Pettibone who were both also banned from entering the UK.
Before the press conference, Atkinson told Breitbart London: “How can this Conservative government stop young conservative people who are concerned about their freedoms and European identity coming into the UK, yet they cannot stop 500 jihadis re-entering the UK and do not have the manpower to monitor them?”
“Amber Rudd is going after the easy targets of young conservatives and free speech but is presiding over yet another failure to stop Pakistani grooming gangs in Telford. We’ve lost all sense of proportion, fairness, and are becoming a totalitarian state,” she added.
Atkinson railed against the government, which she said should be looking outward to the rest of the world in terms of trade after Brexit, for refusing Southern entry.
Ms. Southern, who was detained under the Terrorism Act for “inciting racial hatred” for a social experiment she and others undertook in which they claimed “Allah is a gay God”, explained her story of being detained and asked questions such as her thoughts on running down Muslims with a truck.
She also gave context to the “Allah is a gay God” social experiment claiming she had been inspired by a Vice News article from 2015 which claimed Jesus Christ had been a homosexual man and wanted to see if such speech was allowed when referring to other religions in the UK.

British Scientist Stephen Hawking Dead at Age 76
Stephen Hawking, who sought to explain some of the most complicated questions of life while himself working under the shadow of a likely premature death, has died at 76.
The UK’s Press Association reported his death, citing a spokesman for the family.
Hawking’s formidable mind probed the very limits of human understanding both in the vastness of space and in the bizarre sub-molecular world of quantum theory, which he said could predict what happens at the beginning and end of time.
His work ranged from the origins of the universe itself, through the tantalising prospect of time travel to the mysteries of space’s all-consuming black holes.
But the power of his intellect contrasted cruelly with the weakness of his body, ravaged by the wasting motor neurone disease he contracted at the age of 21.
Hawking was confined for most of his life to a wheelchair.
As his condition worsened, he had to resort to speaking through a voice synthesiser and communicating by moving his eyebrows.
The disease spurred him to work harder but also contributed to the collapse of his two marriages, he wrote in a 2013 memoir “My Brief History.”
In the book he related how he was first diagnosed: “I felt it was very unfair – why should this happen to me,” he wrote.
“At the time, I thought my life was over and that I would never realise the potential I felt I had. But now, 50 years later, I can be quietly satisfied with my life.” Hawking shot to international fame after the 1988 publication of “?A Brief History of Time”, one of the most complex books ever to achieve mass appeal, which stayed on the Sunday Times best-sellers list for no fewer than 237 weeks.
He said he wrote the book to convey his own excitement over recent discoveries about the universe.
?”My original aim was to write a book that would sell on airport bookstalls,” he told reporters at the time. “?In order to make sure it was understandable I tried the book out on my nurses. I think they understood most of it.”Reuters
Ruckus in Gujarat Assembly as BJP, Cong members come to blows
Ahmedabad, March 14
The Gujarat Assembly witnessed a ruckus on Wednesday as the members of the ruling BJP and opposition Congress came to blows. Following the incident, a Congress MLA was suspended for the entire Budget Session of the Assembly.
The Congress members hit BJP MLA Jagdish Panchal with the rod of a microphone and also punched him, following which the members of the ruling party assaulted Amrish Der of the opposition party.
The ruckus began when Speaker Rajendra Trivedi stopped Vikram Madam of the Congress from expressing his views during a discussion on an issue after the Question Hour.
Madam, however, insisted that he would speak. At that time, Der asked the speaker to allow Madam to speak. The Speaker objected to his tone, following which Madam and Der rushed to the Well of the House in protest. Trivedi then suspended both the Congress MLAs for the day and they were taken out of the Assembly by the marshals. This enraged Congress MLA Pratap Dudhat, who then attacked the BJP’s Jagdish Panchal with a rod attached to a microphone. Dudhat was angry with Panchal for asking Congress MLAs to remain silent when the Speaker was making his point.
After the attack on Panchal, the speaker suspended Dudhat for the rest of the Budget Session. He then adjourned the House for 10 minutes.
In the meantime, Der entered the House from the back door and attacked Panchal. The other BJP members present in the House came to Panchal’s rescue and attacked Der. The marshals rushed in and brought the situation under control. PTI
‘We are not calling for the slaughter of white people – at least for now’
South African parliament votes to SEIZE white-owned land as experts warn of violent repercussions
White South African farmers to be removed from their land after parliament vote
- The motion for ‘expropriation without compensation’ passed by a landslide
- It was brought about by Julius Malema who said white farmers are ‘criminals’
PUBLISHED: 28 February 2018 | UPDATED: 1 March 2018
White South African farmers will be removed from their land after a landslide vote in parliament. The country’s constitution is now likely to be amended to allow for the confiscation of white-owned land without compensation, following a motion brought by radical Marxist opposition leader Julius Malema.
It passed by 241 votes for to 83 against after a vote on Tuesday, and the policy was a key factor in new president Cyril Ramaphosa’s platform after he took over from Jacob Zuma in February. Mr Malema said the time for ‘reconciliation is over’. ‘Now is the time for justice,’ News24 reported. ‘We must ensure that we restore the dignity of our people without compensating the criminals who stole our land.’
COMMENT: This is a nonsense comment that is based on a deliberate misunderstanding of history. According to missionary records much of the land was not occupied. The arrival of white settlers, which goes back before the discovery of America, revolutionized farming. The technology and culture introduced provided more reliable food sources and much improved medical and hygiene facilities. Some tribes in the region engaged in war with each other and allegedly carried out genocidal acts against the vanquished. The black population has burgeoned like never before.
White South African farmers will be removed from their land after a landslide vote in parliament. The country’s constitution is now likely to be amended to allow for the confiscation of white-owned land without compensation.
COMMENT: Confiscation of land is one that has been repeated many times under communist regimes and usually ends in disaster as the new occupiers lack the expertise to generate sufficient food to sustain a population. Cape Town has suffered water shortages since under the Zumar regime the adopted a policy where a workforce was apportioned by race. As it meant that 8% of the population were while then only 8% of water engineers could be white. That meant that most engineers lacked sufficient expertise to do the job.
Rural affairs minister for the ruling African National Congress party said ‘The ANC unequivocally supports the principle of land expropriation without compensation’.
Mr Malema has a long-standing commitment to land confiscation without compensation. In 2016 he told his supporters he was ‘not calling for the slaughter of white people – at least for now’. COMMENT: This is an implicit threat of genocide and follows on from very violent attacks being carried out on white farmers.
‘There is no doubt about it, land shall be expropriated without compensation.’
Freedom Front Plus party leader Pieter Groenewald said the decision to strip white farmers of their land would cause ‘unforeseen consequences that is not in the interest of South Africa’.
The deputy chief executive of civil rights group Afriforum said the motion was a violation of agreements made at the end of apartheid.

Donald Trump announces newest US warship to be named after Canberra
By Andrew Brown February 24 2018
The newest American navy vessel will have a touch of Australia on board, if only in name.
During a joint press conference in Washington DC with Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, US President Donald Trump announced the US Navy’s new warship will be named the USS Canberra.
The USS Canberra will be an Independence-variant Littoral Combat Ship, and will replace its former namesake, which was decommissioned in the 1970s.
It is only the US navy vessel to be named for a city outside of the US.

Speaking at the press conference early on Saturday morning Australian time, President Trump said the ship was a symbol of the bond between the US and Australia.
“As she sails the opens seas, the new USS Canberra will be a symbol to all who cross her path of the enduring friendship between the United States and Australia,” he said. “There is no closer friendship.”
How high is air pollution in your city and how does it compare to the most polluted cities in the world?
Over 28,000 people die from air pollution in the UK every year Credit: Matt Dunham/AP
Tetovo in Macedonia was the most polluted European city in the database, followed by Tuzla in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The most polluted city in the UK isn’t actually London. Glasgow topped that list, followed by Scunthorpe and Leeds with London in sixth place.
Pollution is a greater global threat than Ebola and HIV, according to warnings by the World Health Organisation.
According to its recent report, one in four deaths among children aged under five are now due to environmental hazards such as air pollution and contaminated water.
WHO guidelines state that cities should aim to have an annual average of no more than 10 micrograms of PM2.5 (very fine particulate matter) for every cubic metre of air. London had an annual PM2.5 average of 15 μg/m3 in 2013, far lower than Beijing’s average of 85.2 μg/m3.
These particles are very small in diameter and are classed as carcinogenic by leading health organisations. Thousands of deaths a year are attributable to air pollution in the UK.
Previously this year, air pollution levels in London were worse than those in Beijing for a brief period – with the UK capital’s pollutants frequently breaking UK limits. Now, the UK Government plans to tackle such dangers by banning diesel and petrol cars by 2040.
But how bad is air pollution in other areas of the UK?
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), London is just a mid-table city when it comes to the international league table of polluted places.
London only ranked 1,389th out of the nearly 3,000 cities and towns around the world monitored in the WHO’s database of annual air pollution readings.
NOAA Caught Adjusting Big Freeze out of Existence
by JAMES DELINGPOLE 20 Feb 2018
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has yet again been caught exaggerating ‘global warming’ by fiddling with the raw temperature data.
This time, that data concerns the recent record-breaking cold across the north-eastern U.S. which NOAA is trying to erase from history. If you believe NOAA’s charts, there was nothing particularly unusual about this winter’s cold weather which caused sharks to freeze in the ocean and iguanas to drop out of trees.
Here is NOAA’s January 2018 chart for Northeast U.S. – an area which includes New England along with NY, PA, NJ, DE and MD.
You’d never guess from it that those regions had just experienced record-breaking cold, would you?
That’s because, as Paul Homewood has discovered, NOAA has been cooking the books. Yet again – presumably for reasons more to do with ideology than meteorology – NOAA has adjusted past temperatures to look colder than they were and recent temperatures to look warmer than they were.
We’re not talking fractions of a degree, here. The adjustments amount to a whopping 3.1 degrees F. This takes us well beyond the regions of error margins or innocent mistakes and deep into the realm of fiction and political propaganda.
Homewood first smelt a rat when he examined the New York data sets. He was particularly puzzled at NOAA’s treatment of the especially cold winter that ravaged New York in 2013/14, which he describes here:
The cold weather really began on Jan 2nd, when an Arctic front descended across much of the country, and extended well into March.
The NWS wrote at the end of the winter:
The winter of 2013-14 finished as one of the coldest winters in recent memory for New York State. Snowfall across Western and North Central New York was above normal for many areas, and in some locations well above normal. This winter comes on the heels of two previous mild winters, making the cold and snow this winter feel that much harsher.
Temperatures this winter finished below normal every month, and the January through March timeframe finished at least 4 degrees below normal for the two primary climate stations of Western New York (Buffalo and Rochester)…..
Relentless cold continued through the month of January across the region.
So why, he wondered, did NOAA have this marked down as only the 30th coldest winter (since 1895) on its New York State charts, with a mean temperature of 16.9F?
Homewood compared the local records for January 1943 and January 2014 – months which, according to NOAA’s charts, had very similar average temperatures.
What he found was that NOAA’s charts were deeply inaccurate. The 2014 local temperatures had been adjusted upwards by NOAA and the 1943 local temperatures downwards.
On average the mean temperatures in Jan 2014 were 2.7F less than in 1943. Yet, according to NOAA, the difference was only 0.9F. Somehow, NOAA has adjusted past temperatures down, relatively, by 1.8F.
Now, Homewood has given the same treatment to the most recent Big Freeze – the winter of 2017/2018. Yet again, he has found that NOAA’s arbitrary adjustments tell a lie. They claim that January 2018 was warmer in the New York region than January 1943, when the raw data from local stations tells us this just isn’t true. So at the three sites of Ithaca, Auburn and Geneva, we find that January 2018 was colder than January 1943 by 1.0, 1.7 and 1.3F respectively. Yet NOAA say that the division was 2.1F warmer last month. NOAA’s figure makes last month at least 3.1F warmer in comparison with 1943 than the actual station data warrants.
Clearly NOAA’s highly homogenised and adjusted version of the Central Lakes temperature record bears no resemblance at all the actual station data.
And if this one division is so badly in error, what confidence can there be that the rest of the US is any better?
Well indeed. The key point here is that while NOAA frequently makes these adjustments to the raw data, it has never offered a convincing explanation as to why they are necessary. Nor yet, how exactly their adjusted data provides a more accurate version of the truth than the original data.
One excuse NOAA’s apologists make is that weather stations are subject to changing environmental conditions. For example, when the station sited at Syracuse in 1929 was located at what was originally just a sparse aerodrome. Since then, however, as Homewood notes, it has grown into a large international airport with two runways servicing two million passengers a year. Its weather station readings therefore will certainly have been corrupted by the Urban Heat Island effect: that is, its temperature readings will have been artificially elevated by the warmth from the surrounding development and aircraft engines.
So you’d think, wouldn’t you, that to compensate for this NOAA would adjust the recent temperatures downwards. Instead, for no obvious reasons, it has adjusted them upwards.
This is a scandal. NOAA’s climate gatekeepers are political activists not honest scientists and the U.S. taxpayer has no business funding their propaganda.
Whatever the pros and cons for or against climate change. I have found it disturbing how many of those in favour of the man-made climate change argument tend to be so authoritarian and vindictive towards those who hold a different opinion. The vitriol detracts from their case as it seems more about forcing you to comply than persuading through reason and logic. It begs the questions: Why are you so determined to make me comply? What is your ulterior motive?

Lorry driver ‘SOCKED’ after being turned down for job interview ‘because he is British’
Michael Fowler, 39, said he received an email from a recruitment consultant telling him “our positions exclude British candidates” after he applied for a delivery driver vacancy just eight miles from his home in Salisbury, Wiltshire.
Recruitment agency Blu Global said it was “completely shocked” after it was shown the email from its consultant.
It read: “Hi Michael, Are you British because our positions exclude British candidates? Kind regards, P****** I*****, recruitment consultant.”
Mr Fowler, who applied for the driving position on job-site Indeed, said that it was advertised for drivers “to live and work in the EU”.
Has China developed a hypersonic railgun?
Photos were leaked on Wednesday, Jan. 31, that have caused many to suspect that China is testing a ship-mounted hypersonic railgun. While this has not been confirmed, and the superweapon might not even be operational, it does raise concerns.
- Photos shared on Twitter show what appears to be a railgun mounted on a ship
- This would make China the first nation to develop this type of weapon
- The railgun is able to fire projectiles at Mach 6 speeds, or over 4,500 mph
