Time for the GOP to rally to President Trump and the agenda that won 2016

As evidenced by the outcomes of both the Virginia gubernatorial race and the Alabama Senate special election, no matter what, Democrat voters are going to be extremely motivated in 2018 to take back Congress.

For, this is no time to panic.

Instead, it is time for Republicans to rally to President Trump and the agenda that won the election in 2016. That is, cut taxes, repeal Obamacare, appoint conservative judges, get better trade deals, slash regulations, curb illegal immigration and build the southern border wall. Also, no bad deals on DACA amnesty. The wall is not enough; chain migration has to be ended.

WHY DOES THE NEW $1 BILLION US EMBASSY IN LONDON NEED THE FIRST MOAT SINCE MEDIEVAL TIMES

If you google “London moats”, you’ll probably alight on a link which will take you to “London’s Top 10 Moats: A Spotter’s Guide”. We had no idea there were so many and could only think of the “obvious” one surrounding the Tower of London, even if it’s waterless these days. According to the guide, a defensive ditch has surrounded the Tower since its origins in the eleventh century. The moat, which contained water from the thirteenth century until the 1840s, helps to protect the roughly cuboid “White Tower” keep, which gives the Tower of London its name. Built by William the Conqueror in 1078, the White Tower was resented as a symbol of oppression inflicted on London by the new ruling elite.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is "power projection", writ large, in Architecture; ugly, impersonal, cold, hostile,ruthless, and heartless, just as is the American deep state and its agenda.

This... is the kind of architecture signed off on by a government both terrified of its own people figuring out what it has done, with their money, and in their name, and terrified of the people around the world who are furious at the US government having expropriated their resources, to which this government has no moral right.

Brexit Breakthrough? Brussels Poised to Greenlight Second Stage of Talks

UK Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit speech was applauded by EU leaders on Thursday night, and hopes are high that progress in the London-Brussels talks on Britain's withdrawal from the EU will continue.

During their summit on Friday, the EU leaders are expected to approve the next stage of Brexit talks on a transition deal.

Earlier, they gave a round of applause to British Prime Minister Theresa May after she delivered a speech to outline Brexit's divorce proposals and call on Brussels to give a green light to the second stage of the UK-EU negotiations.

The gas that came in from the cold: Britain turns to sanctioned Russian energy to avoid big freeze

With gas supplies crippled amid a freezing winter by the shutdown of a major pipeline, the UK has apparently turned to a Russian project targeted by US sanctions, with reports indicating that a deal was struck for a shipment of gas by the end of December.

Some 170,000 cubic meters of liquefied natural gas (LNG) carried by the Christophe de Margerie ice-class tanker, the first vessel of the Novatek-operated Yamal project in the Arctic, has been bought by a British energy company. It is now heading to the Isle of Grain terminal in the UK, the Telegraph reported.

One of the largest Russian natural gas producers, Novatek, revealed Monday that the cargo was sold to Petronas LNG UK Limited (PLUK), the UK branch of Malaysia's Petronas.

And last night Mr Verhofstaft stuck the boot in with a mocking tweet at the Government’s expense.

Facebook: Just three Russian Brexit ads found by inquiry

Facebook says its investigation into Russian attempts to influence the Brexit vote has determined the activity amounted to just three adverts.

The Electoral Commission had asked the social-media giant for information on any meddling in the 2016 referendum.

Facebook said it had looked into activity by Russian accounts.

It said the identified ads had cost less than $1 (75p) in total to post, and had reached no more than 200 UK-based viewers over four days.

EU to toughen Brexit stance on 'gangster' Britain, MEPs vow

The EU will harden its position on Brexit trade talks after London said it would only pay its divorce bill if it got a deal, leading European parliamentarians said on Tuesday.

Guy Verhofstadt, the European Parliament's Brexit coordinator, said EU leaders meeting for a summit this week would now insist on the divorce terms being legally binding.

He condemned "unacceptable" comments by Britain's Brexit Minister David Davis in which Davis said a deal struck to seal separation arrangements and open talks on future relations was a "statement of intent" rather than "legally enforceable."

Billionaire Branson branded ‘a grasping capitalist’ for suing cash-strapped NHS

Anger is mounting in the UK against billionaire Richard Branson, who successfully sued the cash-starved National Health Service (NHS) for £328,000 of taxpayer money. Almost 70,000 people have signed a petition calling for him to return the funds.

The petition reads: “When the NHS is under severe financial pressure, it cannot afford to lose this money. Richard Branson, however, with an estimated personal wealth of over £3.5 billion, can manage perfectly comfortably without it." It urges Branson to apologize, return the money, and to make a personal commitment that his company, Virgin Care, will never again sue the NHS after losing out on a contract.

Freezing 97% Of Britain To Death

On the coldest morning of the winter so far, wind and solar have collapsed and are producing only 3% of Britain’s energy. The sun isn’t shining and the wind isn’t blowing.

The UK government plans to go 100% “renewable” – which apparently means they are perfectly happy to let the population freeze to death, dark and hungry.

UK Gov't Exposed For Funding Terrorist "Councils," "Police," And "White Helmets"

By Brandon Turbeville

The BBC has recently surprised everyone with a rare act of journalism, exposing the UK government for funding terrorists in Syria through a foreign aid programme that has dished out millions of pounds of taxpayer money over the years. The money has been awarded to groups like Adam Smith International which is then funneled to the extremists. At the focus of the BBC article is the fact that taxpayer money has been provided to the Free Syrian Police, a police force operated by “rebel” councils...

North Sea pipeline SHUTS DOWN - driving up fuel bills at worst possible time

A VITAL pipeline which brings fuel to the UK has been shut for repairs – raising prices just as the big freeze starts to bite.

The Forties Pipeline System (FPS) supplies nearly 40 per cent of oil and gas to these shores, and the four-week shutdown is certain to have a major knock-on effect.

After the news, North Sea Brent, which is generally regarded as the international crude oil benchmark, jumped to $64.93 a barrel – a two-year high.

The Times newspaper uses Grenfell Tower disaster to attack RT… again

Six months after one of Britain’s worst post-war disasters in which dozens died and hundreds lost their homes, the Times newspaper has attacked activists seeking justice for victims, and chucked in another swipe at RT for good measure. Because why not?

The Times gets off to a strong start in its RT story with the line “A Kremlin-controlled TV station seized on the Grenfell Tower fire to try to foment ‘class war’ in Britain.” It’s a scary accusation, albeit an inaccurate one. RT only aims to foment class war in the early spring. A quick glance around the office shows you’re more likely to find staff fermenting grapes than fomenting class war.

PETER HITCHENS: How do we save British politics? Make MPs get the bus to work

How clever of the Defence Ministry to tell Chancellor Philip Hammond to pay his overdue bills if he wants to carry on flying in RAF planes.

The only problem with the plan is that Mr Hammond will simply whisk the cash out of your pocket and mine, and carry on as before, sinking into the leather seats of Her Majesty’s executive jets and avoiding the normal horrors of travel.

I have never understood why politicians get these privileges. The excuse of ‘security’ is in reality very thin. The risk to them isn’t all that great. Most are so obscure that they could pass unrecognised in any high street.

Thousands of people are hit by Asbos for feeding birds, letting their dogs bark and failing to recycle properly

More and more householders are being hit with tough new-style Asbos for feeding birds, failing to recycle properly or letting their dogs bark.
New research has found that town halls handed out more than 4,000 of the controversial orders, known as Community Protection Notices (CPNs), last year.

They can be issued to anyone deemed to be causing a nuisance to their neighbours, with the threat of a criminal record and a fine of up to £2,500 for those judged not to have improved their behaviour.

SIMON WALTERS: Outsider Gavin Williamson is a man in a hurry and has his sights zeroed in on Number 10

Just a month ago the idea of Gavin Williamson succeeding Theresa May if, as many expect, she stands down as Prime Minister after Britain leaves the EU in March 2019, would have been dismissed as a joke.

Few had heard of him until he replaced Defence Secretary Michael Fallon who was forced to resign last month over sexual harassment claims.

But the moment Williamson got his feet under his MoD desk he launched a one-man publicity blitz: he picked a public fight with Chancellor Philip Hammond over defence cuts, saved two military dogs from being put down and last week said all Britons who had fought for ISIS should be killed.

Cabinet big-hitters back PM's EU deal as a step towards a soft Brexit... as rival Gove camp push May in relentless drive towards harder terms

Michael Gove was last night accused of undermining Theresa May and promoting himself as her successor by saying voters could use the next Election to rip up her EU deal.

The Environment Secretary, who led the Brexit campaign with Boris Johnson, said that after a two-year ‘transition’ when the UK leaves the EU in 2019, it would have ‘full freedom to diverge from EU law on the single market and customs union’.

If the public thought the Government was being too timid, an Election could force a more radical split and ‘divergence’ from Brussels, he argued.

Prince Charles: “Let’s remember Muhammad on Christmas”

Is Prince Charles willfully blind? Or evil?

While speaking on the British radio show “Thought for the Day,” the future King of Britain, Prince Charles, said that Christians should be more mindful of Islam and Muhammad during the holidays.

Christians are quite mindful of Muhammad and Islam during the Christmas season. Tis the season of jihad, rivaled only by Ramadan in the spike in Islamic terror attacks. Yes, Prince Charles, Christians remember Muhammad while their churches are burned, their children kidnapped and forcibly converted and their villages burned — all in the cause of Allah.

Jerusalem’s fate – Grant F Smith

Thousands protest in Britain against Trump’s Jerusalem announcement

Thousands of people took the streets of Britain yesterday in protest against the decision by Donald Trump to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Demonstrations were held in at least 10 cities, including London, Manchester and Birmingham.

Organised by the Palestinian Forum of Britain and other major civil society groups, those taking part defied the bitterly cold weather to show their solidarity with Palestine. In London, protesters gathered in front of the US Embassy in Grosvenor Square.

“The recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of an oppressive entity is a violation of every legal norm,” insisted the chair of the Forum, Hafez Al-Karmi. “If international laws and conventions are neither respected nor followed, we should not be surprised if there is chaos in the world.” We are prepared to stand together against the terrorists of Daesh, he asked, so who will stand and fight the terror adopted by Trump and Netanyahu today?

Jacob Rees-Mogg tops next Tory leader poll with LANDSLIDE as embattled May falls behind

The backbencher was one of six politicians featured in a Facebook poll, which asked Express.co.uk readers who they want as the next Tory leader.

Alongside the Mogg and Mrs May was Brexit champion David Davis, foreign secretary Boris Johnson, former leadership contender Andrea Leadsom and Scottish Tory leader Ruth Davidson.

But despite the stiff competition, Mr Rees-Mogg cleaned up across the board as he secured a whopping 2,706 votes from 3,890 responses when the poll ended.

The Prime Minister was left red faced after she secured just 666 votes.

‘Ignorant’ Chancellor Philip Hammond Says Disabled Workers May Be Hitting Britain’s Productivity

Philip Hammond’s suggestion that disabled people could be responsible for the UK’s sluggish productivity is “extraordinarily ignorant,” a leading campaign group has said. The chancellor has been accused of “disgusting scapegoating.”

Hammond insinuated that “increasing participation” in the workforce of disabled people may have “had an impact on overall productivity measures.”

Flynn Case Highlights Deep Political Corruption of US Security Services

Both phone calls took place after the American election. Neither had anything to do with possible collusion regarding the election.

The Flynn case is also a prime example of how the American security services have been politically corrupted, but it is unlikely that Mueller will have any interest in that aspect of the case as the investigation itself has become little more than a political witch hunt in which the Washington-New York Establishment is seeking to explain why its candidate lost in November.

Rees-Mogg takes SAVAGE swipe at Hammond over claim Britain will CAVE to EU demands

Jacob Rees-Mogg said it would be ‘unwise’ for the UK to spend £40 billion on a Brexit bill if a trade deal has not been agreed.

Chancellor Philip Hammond claimed in a hearing of the Commons Treasury Committee on Wednesday that the £45 million Brexit divorce bill would still be paid even if no EU trade deal is struck.

Speaking to the BBC, the Tory MP said: “I hope that it turns out that the Chancellor has misspoken.

“That it would be unwise of us to spend 40 billion pounds, 40 billion pounds that we have no legal obligation to spend without getting a trade deal at the end of it.”

Brexit 'SAPPING demand for German cars with number of exports PLUMMETING'

Matthias Wissmann of the German Federation of the Automobile Industry, said: "Brexit and the related lower demand in Britain caused by exchange rates has contributed to a 2.0-per cent fall in car exports, to 4.3 million vehicles.”

The UK is is the biggest export market by unit sales and the second-biggest in cash value.

German carmakers have around 20 per cent of global car market share this year with 16.4 million vehicles sold and produced around half of all new cars registered in Europe.

'Biggest LIARS in political history' British MEP in stunning attack on Labour over Brexit

Ukip MEP Patrick O’Flynn said any backtracking by the Labour party on border control or quitting the single market went against the British people.

Labour has been accused of yet another backtrack after shadow Brexit Secretary Sir Keir Starmer urged the Government to put access to the Customs Union and Single Market “back on the table”, even though Jeremy Corbyn previously ruled it out.

Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live, Mr O’Flynn told Labour MP Ben Bradshaw that Labour was “playing with fire”.

He said: “If Labour aren’t very careful, they’re going to become known as the biggest bunch of liars in political history.

The European Commission President is desperate to keep Theresa May in power amid fears that a leadership coup could disrupt the Brexit process and allow a more hardline Brexiteer taking over from her, it has been revealed.

It comes as the PM’s own MPs warned she could be overthrown “within weeks” if she does not return from Brussels next week with an agreement that trade talks can begin.

Speaking to the Telegraph, one EU official said: “Mr Juncker wants to support Mrs May to avoid the collapse of her Government. He is prepared to meet her at any time, including on days next week in the run up to the European summit.”

FIFTH OF UK POPULATION NOW IN POVERTY AMID WORST DECLINE FOR CHILDREN AND PENSIONERS IN DECADES, MAJOR REPORT REVEALS

Britain’s record on tackling poverty has reached a turning point and is at risk of unravelling, following the first sustained rises in child and pensioner poverty for two decades, a major report has warned.

Nearly 400,000 more children and 300,000 more pensioners are now living in poverty than five years ago, during which time there have been continued increases in poverty across both age groups – prompting experts to warn that hard-fought progress towards tackling destitution is “in peril”.

The report, by the independent Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF), shows that a total of 14 million people in the UK currently live in poverty – more than one in five of the population. While poverty levels fell in the years to 2011-12, changes to welfare policy – especially since the 2015 Budget – have seen the numbers creep up again.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How a country will be judged, through the lens of history, is in large part through how it treats its most vulnerable of its citizens, both its children, and its medically fragile elderly.

The UK is failing its most vulnerable citizens, and catastrophically, right now.

The Brexit architects expressed “genuine fear” that the Prime Minister was seeking regulatory alignment between the UK and Brussels after Britain leaves.

Fear of a soft Brexit plot to keep the UK shackled to Brussels emerged after details of the proposed future of Ireland’s border were leaked prompting a furious DUP into torpedoing the deal.

A Cabinet source told The Telegraph: “It seems that either Northern Ireland is splitting from the rest of the UK or we are headed for high alignment with the EU, which certainly hasn’t been agreed by Cabinet.

From ‘Russia-Gate’ to ‘Israel-Gate’ – Justin Raimondo

I feel obligated to repeat my admonition of the various Beltway careerists who light up the small firmament of anti-interventionism: why no defense of the White House on this vitally important issue?

Given the scope of a special counsel’s powers, and the wide berth he is given to pursue possible violations to the law far removed from his original mandate, perhaps we should have expected that some other foreign connection would come to light.

Thousands of British soldiers are unfit for battle because of medical conditions, and the Royal Navy may need French ships in order to fight, calling into question whether the UK’s military is able to defend Britain at all.

Up to 8,000 people are unable to be deployed to the frontline because of mental or physical conditions, lack of fitness or non-medical conditions. That is on top of 10,000 who are deemed medically fit, but are still short of being able to join all operations.

DUP scuppers Brexit plan for Northern Ireland - so now what? Everything you need to know about Theresa May's next moves

Theresa May has just days to salvage Brexit negotiations after a deal was vetoed by the very party she bribed with ­£1billion to prop up her weak Tory government.

The Prime Minister had to break off from final-round talks today as DUP leader Arlene Foster refused to back a solution to the Irish border question that would in effect separate Northern Ireland from the rest of the UK.

The dramatic last-minute intervention scuppered hopes of agreement with EU chiefs so trade talks could begin.

Now a new fix must be found to avoid the complete disaster of having no deal on Brexit at the European Council summit in Brussels next week.

Italy panic as Brexit will see €42 BILLION in funding to country disappear

ITALY could lose €42billion in European Union funding in the wake of Brexit as the UK is expected to leave a gaping black hole in the bloc’s budget.

The EU will deal with the Brexit budget deficit after 2020 with cuts to regions in Northern Italy that are currently dependent on EU funding.

The president of Tuscany has penned a panicked article as regions across the bloc grapple with a forthcoming €70billion budget deficit after Britain’s EU contributions stop.

Two alternate EU plans foretell very different futures – one says resources will be maintained at current levels while another predicts cuts of 15-30 per cent.

If the cuts are implemented, Tuscany stands to lose €1.5billion in the first EU budget after Britain quits the bloc.

UK foreign aid money 'diverted to extremists' in Syria

The government has suspended a foreign aid project after a BBC Panorama investigation found taxpayers' cash was being diverted to extremists in Syria.

Officers from a UK-backed police force in Syria have also been working with courts carrying out brutal sentences.

A UK government spokesman said it takes allegations of co-operation with terrorist groups "extremely seriously".

Adam Smith International, the British company running the project, said it strongly denies the allegations.

Jacob Rees-Mogg skewers BBC host - Brexit Britain MUST leave the EU COMPLETELY in 2019

The Tory MP told Marr the UK should “implement” its withdrawal from the European Union from that date and not pretend it is still part of the Brussels bloc.

Speaking on the Andrew Marr Show, the leading Brexiteer dismissed the term “transition period” as misleading and said it would delay Britain’s departure by two years.

Asked about a letter he signed to Theresa May calling for no money to be handed over to the EU until a free trade deal is agreed with the bloc, Jacob Rees-Mogg said it was important not to throw funds away.

The letter also states there should be no freedom of movement, no European Court of Justice jurisdiction, and the ability to sign free trade deals around the world from March 2019 when the Brexit “transition period” begins.
