Britain’s biggest banks will begin a large withdrawal of their presence within Britain as fears grow of a hard Brexit.
If the UK decides to leave the single market and the customs union in order to restrict the freedom of people coming into the country, lenders could move their headquarters out of London’s financial district.
A woman opened her heart and her door to a 12-year-old boy who had fled the horrors of war in Afghanistan after losing his parents – or so she thought.
In reality, not only was the boy in her care, Jamal, almost a decade older than she had been duped into believing, but he also had Taliban and child abuse material on his phone.
Hillary Clinton has such a similar vision for America designed by her benefactor — George Soros, who talks of “international governance,” more open borders, increased immigration and diminished U.S. global power; that a vote for Clinton is George to voting for George Soros himself. Soros wrote in 1998: “The sovereignty of states must be subordinated to international law and international institutions.” Clinton will destroy American sovereignty and promoto Soros “open society.” Margaret Howell reports @margaretjhowell

NATO uses any pretext to accuse Russia of harboring aggressive intentions. It has raised ballyhoo over the recent deployment of Iskander short-range surface-to-surface ballistic missiles to the Kaliningrad region.
Time and time again, the alliance reaffirms its bogus Russia narrative. “We see more assertive and stronger Russia that is willing to use force,” concluded NATO General Secretary Jens Stoltenberg speaking at the round table in Passau, Bavaria on October 10.

Venezuela is bracing for a revolution after Maduro’s socialist government suspended a recall vote just 1 week before it was set to begin, a move that opposition leaders have described as “a coup.”

(REUTERS) – Rescuers pulled 2,400 boat migrants to safety on Saturday, the Italian coastguard said, adding 14 dead bodies had been recovered in the past two days.
The migrants were on rubber boats and other small vessels, it said in a statement. Some 20 operations were carried out on Saturday alone, including rescues involving an Irish naval ship and boats from humanitarian groups Doctors Without Borders and Sea Watch. Continue reading »
AN IRAQI asylum seeker who confessed to raping a 10-year-old boy in a swimming pool, claiming it was a “sexual emergency”, has had his conviction overturned.
In a truly shocking twist the Suptreme Court decided the grown Iraqi man may not have realised the 10-year-old did not want to be sexually abused by him.Amir A, 20, was visiting the Theresienbad pool in the Austrian capital of Vienna last December as part of a trip to encourage integration.When the youngster went to the showers, Amir A. allegedly followed him, pushed him into a toilet cubicle, and violently sexually assaulted him.Following the attack, the accused rapist returned to the pool and was practising on the diving board when police arrived, after the 10-year-old raised the alarm with the lifeguard.The child suffered severe anal injuries which had to be treated at a local children’s hospital, and is still plagued by serious post-traumatic stress disorder.

We have written frequently about the internal Clinton Foundation power struggle between Chelsea Clinton and Doug Band over the previous couple of weeks (see here, here and here). It all started back in 2011 when, as Chelsea started to take a more senior role at the Clinton Foundation, she became increasingly concerned about an internal audit that exposed glaring conflicts of interest throughout the Foundation with an emphasis on Doug Band and his company, Teneo, who she thought had inappropriately sought favors from the State Department during Hillary’s tenure as Secretary of State. A Politico article from March 2015, summarized Chelsea’s rise at the Foundation and how it threatened some long-time Clinton allies who had grown quite accustomed to the status quo.

During the third and last presidential debate between Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton, debate moderator Chris Wallace pulled a quote from a speech Clinton had given to Brazilian bankers, noting the information had been made available to the public via WikiLeaks.
Instead of answering the question, Clinton blamed the Russian government for the leaks, alleging “[t]he Russian government has engaged in espionage against Americans,” hacking “American websites, American accounts of private people, of institutions … in an effort, as 17 of our intelligence agencies have confirmed, to influence our election.”
Following the claim, Clinton criticized Trump for saying “[Clinton] has no idea whether it’s Russia, China, or anybody else,” repeating her assertion that 17 U.S. intelligence agencies had determined the Russian government had been behind the Democratic National Committee (DNC) hack.
Despite her claim, reality couldn’t be more different. Continue reading »
The philanthropist George Soros recently published a letter in the Wall Street Journal entitled, ‘Why I’m Investing 500 million USD in Migrants’. In this article, I will be looking at that letter and separating what it means from what it appears to say.
Soros’ letter begins: “The world has been unsettled by a surge in forced migration. Tens of millions of people are on the move, fleeing their home countries in search of a better life abroad. Some are escaping civil war or an oppressive regime; others are forced out by extreme poverty, lured by the possibility of economic advancement for themselves and their families.”
This is quite true. And Soros should know since his think tank is fully on board with that “forced migration”. He has either initiated it or facilitated it and, according to Viktor Orban, Prime Minister of Hungary (which is presently holding a referendum on whether to accept migrant quotas as demanded by the EU), as quoted by Bloomberg: “His name is perhaps the strongest example of those who support anything that weakens nation states, they support everything that changes the traditional European lifestyle […] These activists who support immigrants inadvertently become part of this international human-smuggling network.”
Soros-backed activists are at the center of that network.
Events in Cologne on New Year’s Eve gained international attention as mobs of migrants robbed insiscriminately and launched group sex attacks on a scale previously unseen in Europe, but they failed to make any impact on police statistics.
Of the 500 attacks which were filed in detail with the police, only 17 appear in the Police Crime Statistics (PKS) — the best known and most often cited police statistics — and those that do appear are recorded for the months of April and June. Continue reading »
Newly leaked emails show that Hillary Clinton’s campaign team was advised to link Russian President Vladimir Putin with Donald Trump in an apparent bid to distract voters from Clinton’s strategy on Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL).
The exchange of emails between Clinton campaign chair John Podesta and Clinton ally and columnist Brent Budowski was among the batch of around 1,000 emails from Podesta’s account released by WikiLeaks on Saturday. Continue reading »
H/t reader squodgy:
“If Trump rejects defeat, and the witch does also, then there is no acceptable result.
Could everyone be playing into the hands of the PTB here, by reacting excessively and bringing Martial Law in prematurely?
I think this is a set up.”
In my opinion, the next dates to watch, after the Shemitah & Yom Kippur, are especially October 28 & November 4.
“When was the biggest market crash of all time (23% in one day)? – in an October, just after a Shemitah (a little less than 3 weeks after) – It was Black Monday in 1987.”
I’m expecting something very big (an epic market crash, the greatest financial collapse in world history, followed by civil war. And why not a nuke exploding in Manhattan? Cheney: Next attack on US will be ‘something far more deadlier’ than 9/11) to happen very soon, hoping that I will be proven wrong.
This tip came through the back channels; its implications are astounding.
If there is any truth to it, the 2016 election could be a kick-off for total tyranny.
According to an unnamed source – who has provided accurate intel in the past – an unannounced military drill is scheduled to take place during a period leading up to the election and throughout the month after.
It appears that the system is gearing up to handle outbreaks of violence, chaotic rallies and poll stations, and the possibility that the people of the United States may become very dissatisfied with the outcome by using military force and martial law. Continue reading »
In a keynote speech in Gettysburg, Pa., about his plans for his first 100 days in office, Donald Trump laid out what he sees as the the core priorities of a Trump presidency, while focusing in the early part of the speech on attacks against Hillary Clinton and Wall Street, and repeating his core message by telling his audience that Washington and Wall Street are “rigged” against him and that he is the candidate to bring “the change that has to come.”
“I am not a politician,” Trump told the crowd. “But when I saw the trouble our country was in, I felt I had to act.” Then, moments after promising Americans that he represented a break from
the status quo, he promised to sue a number of women who have come
forward to accuse him of sexual assault, calling them liars. Continue reading »
Yesterday, when Philippine president Duterte finally took the plunge to announce his “separation” from the US (even if his government has backtracked somewhat today), he said that not only would he “realign” himself in China’s ideological flow but, in a nuance that was missed by many, said that “I will also go to Russia to talk to (President Vladimir) Putin and tell him that there are three of us against the world – China, Philippines and Russia. It’s the only way.”
To be sure, an offical axis between China, Russia and a nation that until recently was a core US ally in the Pacific Rim – whose loss would be a huge slap in the face of Obama and whoever replaced him as president – would be music to Putin’s ears, which is why just minutes after Philippine president announced his stunning separation from the US, Russia’s ambassador to the country promptly said Moscow is ready to provide assistance to and fully cooperate with Manila.

The 2016 election year is bringing out the worst among some elements of society. From vandalism to physical assaults to large-scale race riots to terrorist bombings and mall stabbings, social disorder has become a more prominent feature of life in a polarized America.
It’s easy (and politically convenient) for the establishment media to blame Donald Trump for inflaming the political divide. In reality, Trump supporters have far more often been the victims rather than the instigators of political violence. Continue reading »

Danney Williams has been claiming that Bill Clinton is his father for his entire life. His mother, a black woman named Bobbi Anne Williams, was working as a prostitute in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1984 when she met Bill Clinton for the first time. When Bobbi Anne was 24, Bill Clinton was jogging by her housing complex and stopped to introduce himself. Several days later, Clinton encountered Bobbi Anne again while jogging. This time, he offered her $200 to have sex with him behind the bushes. Bobbi Anne recalls 13 total sexual encounters with Clinton, and she is sure that he is the father of son Danney, who has no doubts himself about being Bill Clinton’s son.”It was common knowledge” in the Little Rock area. Everywhere he went, people were saying, “That’s Bill Clinton’s son right there” and proceeded to talk about common attributes between the two. Now, Williams has 5 children of his own, whom he repeated tells they will one day get to meet their grandfather. Bill, however, has been ignoring him since day one — or maybe not.
Recent domestic terror attacks by Islamic extremists are raising questions among officials and security experts about whether FBI counterterrorism training is deficient.
Article by Bill Gertz
The chief suspect in the New York City homemade bombing attacks last weekend, Ahmad Rahami, was probed for several weeks by the FBI in 2014 after his father alerted authorities to his terrorist leanings.
Rahami’s father, Mohammad Rahami, told reporters this week that he informed the FBI about concerns about his son after Rahami stabbed one of his brothers in a domestic dispute. Continue reading »
- The Islamophobia that Erdogan never ceases to claim exists in the Western world may or may not be a real social malady, but non-Muslimphobia in Turkey is increasingly a contagious malady.
- “Traitors! We’ll bomb your church!” — The words of Mehmet Ali Eren, suspected al-Qaeda member, as he attacked Protestant Pastor Andrew Craig Brunson in Izmir, Turkey.
- Erdogan should explain why he persistently demands more and more tolerance for Muslims living in non-Muslim lands, including the building of mosques in every capital, while his government can deport Pastor Brunson and his wife on the spurious grounds that they pose a security threat to his country. The police explained that they were being expelled on grounds of posing a security threat because they had carried out “missionary activity and received money from sources abroad.”
The Italian government has passed a new law that will cost taxpayers a record €700 million to defray the expenses of migrant welcome centers and centers for retention of “irregular” foreigners.
The measure allocates €600 million for associations that deal with the first reception and housing of migrants, which is added to the €100 million budgeted for host municipalities to help deal with their costs in handling the influx of new migrants.
A lack of government funding has meant that since last March unpaid bills for migrant services have been piling up and the new allocation of funds is meant to liquidate those debts while granting hosting centers a certain measure of breathing room, according to reports in the Italian media.

Politicians in Enköpings have this week approved a proposal which will allow the local government to reserve all available apartments owned by the municipal property company for migrants.
Swedes on the waiting list for housing in the locality are going to have to to queue for considerably longer than they expected because in the coming months, most vacant apartments owned by Enköpings Housing Rentals (EHB) will be assigned to migrants granted residence permits.
“We are in a tough position because there are very many people who are looking for housing, but we have an obligation to provide housing for newly arrived refugees,” Social Democratic Party councillor Helena Proos said. Continue reading »
A pensioner couple in Germany have been faced with the choice of either living in an asylum home with migrants or be made homeless due to the lack of housing in the city of Bonn.
Uwe and Margitta Lange are like many elderly German couples, retired or out of work. Housing shortages across the country have led to a rise in rents leaving many elderly Germans unable to afford their apartments on their small monthly benefits.
The city of Bonn in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia where Mr. and Mrs. Lange live has decided that the pair will have to reside among migrants in an asylum home or they will face the prospect of living on the streets, reports Die Welt. Continue reading »
