EU Chief Jean-Claude Juncker Defies Protests to Deliver Heartfelt Defence of Karl Marx

'Delivering an impassioned defence of Karl Marx's legacy, EU boss Jean-Claude Juncker argued the radical should not be judged for the Communist atrocities that took place in his name.

The President of the European Commission defied protests to deliver his speech at an event commemorating the 200th anniversary of the Communist Manifesto writer's birth in Trier, west Germany.

Speaking at a church in the city, he said: "Karl Marx was a philosopher, who thought into the future, had creative aspirations, and today he stands for things which is he not responsible for, and which he didn't cause, because many of the things he wrote down were redrafted into the opposite.

He added: "One has to understand Karl Marx from the context of his time and not have prejudices based on the review, these judgements shouldn't exist."

During the event, where he unveiled a statue of Marx donated by China's authoritarian government, Juncker also highlighted goals of furthering EU integration and "social rights" in the bloc as Marx's contribution to the European project.

His speech, which was briefly interrupted by an anti-Communist protest, came in the face of pleas from politicians around the world for him to boycott the event, which critics argued represented a whitewashing of "the most destructive ideology in human history".'

Ladies and gentlemen, our EU master...

FACT CHECK: Obama Bribed Iran $400 Million to Release U.S. Prisoners?

This report on Snopes https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/obama-bribed-iran-400-million-to-release-u-s-prisoners/ has had me chuckling away today:

'It is true the U.S. agreed to the settlement at the same time it was negotiating a nuclear deal with Iran and for the return of four U.S. citizens who had been detained by Iran. However, the negotiations over these these issues were conducted by completely separate teams in order to avoid any overlap or suggestions of connections between them.

... 

The fact that the money was physically sent to Iran in various currencies  rather than simply transferred by wire may seem odd in the context of the United States' increasingly cashless society, but that was done in order to avoid existing Treasury Department sanctions that banned the use of American currency in transactions with Iran, and international sanctions which at that time kept Iran from accessing the global financial markets (and which were lifted in January 2016).'

Hysterical... 

Also if the money was paid in cash so as to' avoid existing Treasury Department sanctions', wasn't that illegal? 

'Labour anti-Semitism is putting off students' - No shit, Sherlock

Even this blindingly obvious BBC report for young people https://www.bbc.com/news/newsbeat-44397362 that some Jewish students are put off going to some British universities because of the left wing antisemitic attitudes prevailing was too much for the Labour Party.

'We contacted Labour in May when we first started to investigate this to provide someone to interview, but they declined.

They sent us this statement.

"The Labour Party takes all complaints of anti-Semitism extremely seriously, which are fully investigated and appropriate disciplinary action taken in line with our rules and procedures.

"Labour's new General Secretary Jennie Formby has made it her first priority to speed up and strengthen our procedures and to develop a programme of political education to create deeper awareness and understanding about all forms of anti-Semitism."'

When the Labour Party under Corbyn won't even be interviewed by the Labour Party's propaganda arm but have to issue a statement you know that they have a really serious problem with antisemitism in the party. Jeremy Corbyn and his cadre have emboldened the antisemites on the left of the Labour Party and the Corbynites won't do anything concrete to stamp down on the antisemites: they've spent years appearing on platforms with antisemites, reading polemical propaganda and calling Hamas and Hezbollah 'friends'. 

Conservative newcomer Iván Duque wins Colombia's presidential election the BBC News use an odd phrase

This BBC report https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-44513368 on the Colombian Presidential Election result contains this oddly worded sentence:

'He also says he will impose tougher punishments on crimes allegedly committed by the rebels during the brutal five-decade conflict with the government.'

On crimes? Surely that should be for crimes. Also surely the punishments won't be for crimes allegedly committed by the rebels but for actual crimes, unless the BBC believe that the rebels are freedom fighters thus with clean hands.

News from the USA that you won't find reported on the Obama worshipping BBC

Woman shouting 'Allahu akbar' stabs two shoppers at French supermarket


First that there's no mention on the BBC, not that that is surprising. 

Second that any report could elide these two lines:

'A woman allegedly shouted 'Allahu akbar' before she stabbed two people with a box cutter in a supermarket in La Seyne-sur-Merm southern France on Sunday

... 

Officials said it was an 'isolated incident' and cited the woman's history of mental illness, but admitted terrorism could not be ruled out.'

No because shouting Allahu akbar is not a link with Islamist terrorism. 


Here's some more from The Mail report:

A woman has allegedly shouted 'Allahu akbar' before stabbing two people with a box cutter in a supermarket in southern France.

The suspect stabbed customers in a checkout line at a supermarket in La Seyne-sur-Mer on Sunday morning, according to local reports.

A man shopping at the E.Leclerc shop was struck in the chest and was hospitalised, and a woman at the market's cash register was also injured, but not as seriously.

Officials said the attacker, who is said to be 24 years old and born in France, has been detained.

A woman allegedly shouted 'Allahu akbar' before she stabbed two people with a box cutter in a supermarket in La Seyne-sur-Merm southern France on Sunday

The suspect was reportedly quickly overpowered by staff members at the supermarket.

Officials said it was an 'isolated incident' and cited the woman's history of mental illness, but admitted terrorism could not be ruled out.'

The Israeli-Palestinian battle over Prince William’s Kotel visit

'Ten days before the first official visit by a British royal to Israel, Ynet learns the Western Wall will be defined as part of the future king's visit to the Palestinian Authority; Kensington Palace delays the release of the last day's itinerary so as not to create a controversy that would mar the visit.'

So it would be controversial for the Western Wall to be described as part of Israel but not to be included in the Palestinian Territories? I sense two things here, first the dead hand of the Arabists at the Foreign Office and second a touch of fear of violent Palestinian protests/attacks. Man up Prince William, one day you should be King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, be a man and do the right thing.

MP David Lammy grapples with Sun reporter and storms out of interview and after we dared ask about anti-Semitism row at Labour Live festival

The SUN report 

'MP David Lammy grapples with Sun reporter and storms out of interview and after we dared ask about anti-Semitism row at Labour Live festival

LABOUR'S David Lammy lost his rag today when questioned by The Sun about anti-Semitism in the party.

The campaigning MP grappled with our cameraman before storming off in a huff because he didn't want to talk about anti-Jewish bigots putting off attendees.'

Imagine that a Conservative MP had 'grappled' with a press cameraman, the BBC would be headlining the story. However as this is a BAME Labour MP there will be no mention at all.

Maybe David 'Mastermind' Lammy was out of his intellectual depth being asked a question for which he wasn't prepared.

Taxi ploughs into pedestrians in Moscow injuring eight per BBC News

To add some background to this BBC story https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-44509577 here's something, the religious breakdown of the population of Kyrgyzstan:

'Islam - 80%
Russian Orthodox Church -17%
other - 3%'


Jordan Peterson Threatens To Sue Feminist Professor Who Called Him An Incel

This is an interesting story http://dailycaller.com/2018/06/15/jordan-peterson-lawsuit-threat-professor-incel/ about the famed tolerance of the left.

However I'm also intrigued that a Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania professor doesn't appear to be able to differentiate between decent and descent. 

France: Police Foil Islamist Plot to Bomb Swingers' Club

'Counter-terror police in France have foiled two Islamist attacks including one targeting homosexuals and a bomb plot aimed at a club for swingers, local media reports.

In raids conducted in the Seine-et-Marne region east of Paris at the weekend, police discovered "knives, a detonation system and jihadist propaganda" in the possession of two men who were charged on suspicion of planning to carry out an Islamic State-inspired attack.

The individuals, said to be friends in their early 20s who were previously unknown to security services, came to the attention of General Directorate for Internal Security (DGSI) intelligence officers a few weeks ago, a source close to the investigation said.'

Ricin threat: Cologne police search flats and only some aspects of the story are interesting

This BBC report https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-44494010 starts thus:

'German police are searching flats in a Cologne tower block where a Tunisian man is suspected of having kept highly toxic ricin.

The 29-year-old man, named in German media only as Sief Allah H, is being questioned by police.'

The article goes on to query what ricin is and how it's linked to castor oil. What the report doesn't wonder is what possible motive might be behind this storage of ricin. 

POLL: Immigration and Terror Top Issues for EU - so won't be mentioned by the BBC

'Immigration is now seen as the most important issue facing the European Union (EU) by people in every member state apart from seven countries, where the top concern is terrorism, an official survey has found.

The revelation comes from the Euro barometer ( http://ec.europa.eu/commfrontoffice/publicopinion/index.cfm/Survey/getSurveyDetail/instruments/STANDARD/surveyKy/2180 ) a series of public opinion surveys conducted for the European Commission, the bloc's executive branch, and corroborates the results of a YouGov ( http://www.breitbart.com/london/2018/05/11/immigration-and-terror-top-issue-facing-bloc-say-people-across-eu/ )  survey from May.

As recently as 2014, immigration and terror were perceived as less of a concern for the bloc than the economic situation, member states' public finances, and unemployment.

When people were asked this year what "are the two most import issues facing the EU at the moment," 38 percent said immigration was the most important issue in 21 member states.

This is up from 14 in autumn 2017 and included Estonia (62 percent), the Czech Republic (58 percent), and Hungary (56 percent).

Furthermore, immigration was named as the second most important concern in all the remaining member states except for Portugal.'

The news of what real people, not our political and media would be masters, think is not something that the BBC will think appropriate for the British public to know. Better to pretend that multiculturalism and diversity are a great success and that only a few racists and members of the alt right would oppose the new enlightenment.

Remember the EU Referendum leaflet?

Remember this? 

'The referendum on Thursday, 23rd June is your chance to decide if we should remain in or leave the European Union.
This is your decision. The Government will implement what you decide.'

That was in David Cameron's £9 million entirely unbiased pre-referendum leaflet, could it have been any clearer? 

What is in this that our MPs, members of the House of Lords and media would be overlords do not understand? 

Very clearly Parliament devolved the decision to us, the British people, to instruct them as to what to do. It was to be a straightforward majority vote to decide between in and out.

The vote was out, so what more needs to be done?

Don't expect a reminder of this background to the EU Referendum on the treacherous institutionally pro-EU BBC. 

Brexit: MPs reject bid to stay in EEA amid Labour revolt per BBC News

No mention of Labour Party in the headline, nor the word split. 

'Attempts to keep the UK in the European Economic Area after Brexit have been defeated in the House of Commons despite dozens of Labour MPs defying the leader's instructions on the issue.

MPs voted by 327 to 126 against a House of Lords proposal for a close relationship with the EU like Norway's.

Jeremy Corbyn urged his MPs to abstain but 75 voted for and 15 against, while six quit their frontbench roles.'

That's a split in anyone's language and the BBC would be headlining anything even a quarter as serious if it had been the Conservative Party. However the Labour Party's propaganda arm, the BBC, aren't about to be negative about their beloved Labour Party.

What is a 'safe port' and what is a 'rescue mission'?

'So the Aquarius will sail the length of the Mediterranean, passing every safe port in Tunisia and Algeria, to bring 600+ illegal migrants picked up from people-smugglers a few miles off the Libyan coast to Europe.

We're still supposed to believe these are "rescue" missions?'

Wise words, not ones you'll ever hear on the pro unlimited immigration from Africa and the Middle East into Europe, BBC.

Labour's new legal adviser on antisemitism 'absolutely' shares Corbyn view on Israel

'A senior lawyer appointed by the Labour Party as their new in-house counsel to oversee the disciplinary process on antisemitism cases has said he "absolutely" shares the same views on Israel and Palestine as Jeremy Corbyn.

Gordon Nardell QC's role was confirmed by the party last Friday as part of General Secretary Jennie's Formby's pledge to deal with high-profile outstanding antisemitism cases.

But the JC can reveal that Mr Nardell has a long history of hard left activism as a former member of the Labour Representation Committee, chaired by shadow chancellor John McDonnell.

... 

Mr Nardell was asked by a member of the audience, who said she had only re-joined Labour because of Mr Corbyn's views on foreign policy issues such as Palestine, Syria and opposition to the war in Iraq, if he too supports these views. to which Mr Nardell replied: "Yes absolutely."'

Did you really expect better from the Corbyn lead Labour Party?

Open antisemitism by one person at the al-Quds demonstration

If that video is legitimate, and I cannot verify it, then it should shock you. I've met that kind of person before so I'm less shocked than disgusted. 

Family in stationary car moped robbery per the BBC

Another day, another armed robbery in London. However this one has a detail about the perpetrators that is not in the usual BBC reports, can you spot it? 

'A family of four were robbed by two masked men on a moped as they sat in a stationary car in Croydon, south London.

One of the suspects threatened the family with a large knife on Keats Way, Coulsdon, at about 17:45 BST on Friday.

Police say the pair made off with a "small quantity of jewellery".

A 30-year-old woman suffered a cut to the hand during the robbery, as one of the suspects attempted to steal her bracelet.

It is believed that the other man also had a knife.

Detectives described the suspects as two white males, aged in their late teens or early 20s.'

'White males'? Race seems to be rarely reported by the BBC if the suspects are not white, I wonder why.

Ex-Navy sailor Kristian Saucier pardoned by Trump plans to sue Obama

https://youtu.be/Oio692ykPFc

I blogged during the US Presidential Election about the double standards that seemed to apply for rich and powerful Hillary Clinton and the ordinary person in America, I used the treatment that Kristian Saucier received as a glaring example. So I was pleased that President Trump had pardoned Kristian Saucier, I'm even more pleased that Mr Saucier is looking for equal justice now.

As you won't see reported on the institutionally anti Israel BBC

"We will take down the border with Israel and we will tear out their hearts." 
Yahya Sinwar, Hamas leader, May 2018 

That's the sort of factual reporting about the words of the Palestinian leadership that the institutionally anti Israel BBC won't be reporting, don't want to report inconvenient facts that might embarrass the pro Palestinian supporters. 

BBC secretly used private firms to pay top stars millions per The Times

News that you won't see reported on the BBC. 

'The BBC secretly used personal companies to pay dozens of its richest stars £74 million in the past four years despite promising to curb the practice in 2012.

It tried to stop The Times reporting the extent to which it channels earnings through the companies, in a move that experts said could have enabled tax avoidance of up to £20 million.

After ignoring freedom of information requests for four months, the BBC was ordered to respond by the Information Commissioner. The pay arrangements are still in place for two thirds of its highest-paid presenters and actors.'

German-Jewish girl, 14, found raped and murdered

If a Muslim immigration is sworn at then it seems that the BBC headline the story and scream Islamophobia. Somehow I doubt that this story will get anything like equal coverage on the BBC. 

'A Jewish 14-year-old girl in Germany who had been missing since May was found dead.

The girl, identified as Susanna F., was found Wednesday outside Wiesbaden, a city in western Germany. On Thursday, police said that two male asylum seekers were suspected in her rape and murder.

The men, a 20-year-old Iraqi and 35-year-old Turkish citizen, are suspected of killing the girl on May 22, when she went missing. Police said they believe she had been strangled to death.'

There is no God but Allah and Mohammed is his messenger, so says the Arabic text on the Saudi Arabian flag

The Arabic words on the Saudi Arabian flag are translated as "There is no God but Allah and Mohammed is his messenger."

Not included are the beginning of the Hadith from which these words are taken. The whole Hadith translates thus:
"I have been ordered to fight all men until they testify there is no God but Allah and Mohammed is his messenger."

So is the Saudi flag actually a declaration of war against all non-Muslims?

Argentina cancel their football match with Israel but will travel to Russia for the World Cup

Argentina canceled their warmup game against Israel but are happy to travel to Russia for the World Cup.  

Do the Argentinan football team know about the Russian invasion of Crimea, the restrictions on gay rights, the lack of a free press, the endemic racism, the arrest of peaceful demonstrators and most critically Russia's involvement in the murder of countless Syrian civilians? 

Somehow I doubt that Argentina will be canceling their flights to Russia, so what's different about Israel? Is it the Jews?

What is the “Far Right”? The Musical Daniel the Spaniel has his thoughts

The anniversary of the Normandy landings aka D-Day, as not remembered by the BBC

I note that the BBC have nothing in their news about today being the 74th anniversary of D-Day. 

Maybe the EU supporting quislings at the BBC don't want to remind the British people of the thousands of Allied soldiers, airmen and sailors primarily from Britain, America and the British Empire who gave their lives fighting for freedom and the right of other European countries not to be ruled by the Germans.
