There are more than 100 European Union laws that govern pillows. Almost 500 EU laws cover towels. More than 65 EU laws deal with bathrooms. A “mere” 31 EU laws cover toothbrushes, while close to 50 govern toothpaste, and more than 170 deal with mirrors. And that is all just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the super-state's radical lawmaking. Yet, the people of Europe have no clue what those laws say, how they were made, by whom, or even for what purpose. More importantly, perhaps, they have no way of getting rid of the laws or those who usurped the power to make them.
But now, thanks to the “British Exit” (Brexit) referendum coming up on June 23, the British people have what may be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to secede from the out-of-control super-state that has taken over their lives. And the new film Brexit: The Movie, which highlighted the dizzying array of EU laws listed here, may be the best resource yet for explaining the necessity of restoring Britain's independence. Best of all, it is available for free.
On May 17, two Chinese J-11 fighter jets flew within 50 feet of a U.S. EP-3 surveillance plane as it was engaged in a routine surveillance mission in international airspace over the South China Sea. After the incident, a Chinese spokesman demanded that the United States immediately cease such reconnaissance activities.

Interim Brazilian president Michel Temer asked the citizenry to “trust” him, saying that his administration would be Brazil’s “salvation,” but he will do little to solve the country's problems.
The United Nations Security Council wants a global “framework” for censoring the Internet, as well as for using propaganda to “counter” what its apparatchiks call “online propaganda,” “hateful ideologies,” and “digital terrorism.” To that end, the UN Security Council this week ordered the UN “Counter-Terrorism Committee” — yes, that is a real bureaucracy — to draw up a plan by next year. From the Obama administration to the brutal Communist Chinese regime, everybody agreed that it was time for a UN-led crackdown on freedom of speech and thought online — all under the guise of fighting the transparently bogus terror war.
It is time for the United States of America to ditch the whole “states” thing, and for the federal government to re-organize the nation politically into massive regions with powerful regional governments fully subservient to national and international authorities. The goal of the dystopian “economic master plan” is for America to become more like Communist China on the road toward a North American Union. That might sound ridiculous — perhaps like the ravings of a mad man — to the average American. After all, the United States is, by its nature, a union of 50 states that have delegated a few limited and defined powers to their agent, the federal government, in pursuit of, among other objectives, securing “the Blessings of Liberty.” If globalists get their way, though, that “antiquated” notion would be tossed on to the ash heap of history.
As the European Union and the establishment behind it become increasingly totalitarian, paranoid, and unstable, the EU super-state is raising up and training its own transnational military-police force. According to reports and its own propaganda material, the EU “Gendarmerie,” as the force is known, will apparently be charged with putting down protests and civil unrest, raiding illegal political meetings, supporting foreign governments, and even confiscating weapons. Police and troops from numerous African and Middle Eastern nations were also involved in the controversial EU force's latest EU-funded training exercises. Critics are fighting back, though, warning of the dangers of such a force and of the EU itself.
In a sudden unexpected move, early Tuesday morning the acting president of Brazil’s lower house (the Chamber of Deputies) reversed his previous decision from Monday to annul a Chamber of Deputies April vote that allowed impeachment proceedings to move forward. The upper house — the Federal Senate — was already moving toward a vote to impeach Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff when word came that the Chamber was going to have another vote on the matter.
British Prime Minister David Cameron, desperate to win the upcoming June referendum on whether to leave the European Union, has resorted to the doomsday scenario, arguing that such an exit would lead to a world war.
Move over Barack Obama. There’s a new kid on the block in the realm of “firsts”: Sadiq Khan, Labour Party politician, has just become the first Muslim mayor of a Western capital, having won London’s May 5 election.
