Brexit — Britain's exit from the increasingly authoritarian European Union — has become so popular that the Conservative Party leadership has embraced it, looking for an electoral sweep in June.
An anonymous tip from a Trump administration "official" signals that the deal is on: Greece will get its third bailout in time to make its loan payment to international banks on July 1.
United Nations “peacekeeping” troops have faced some 2,000 allegations of rape, pedophilia, and sexual abuse of civilians in a little over a decade, an explosive investigation by the Associated Press found. Many of the victims were just young children. And considering the fact that it is well known and even acknowledged by the UN that the atrocities perpetrated by its soldiers are drastically under-reported, the thousands of accusations likely represent just the tip of a gigantic iceberg of horror. Adding insult to injury is the impunity, with the UN's “peace” forces virtually never held accountable for their savage crimes.
A Swedish court has ruled against a Christian midwife who objected to performing abortions because she said it violated her religious beliefs.
ISIS has claimed responsibility for a pair of deadly bomb attacks on Palm Sunday that killed 44 people at two Coptic Orthodox Christian churches in Egypt.
While there is no proof yet either way, there are good reasons to at least consider the prospect that the sarin gas attack on civilians in Syria this week could have been a “false flag” operation. The last time Syrian dictator Bashar al Assad supposedly used chemical weapons, the story quickly collapsed under scrutiny. The more likely scenario, according to United Nations investigators and virtually every credible analyst who looked at the 2013 crime, was that globalist-backed jihadist “rebels” used the chemicals in a “false-flag” scheme. The goal: blame Syrian authorities in a bid to trigger U.S. government intervention against Assad.
The United Nations war on the free press and whistleblowers continues to escalate. After a UN “court” tried to put a journalist in jail, among other brazen attacks on media freedom, a rogue UN agency is now abusing the Italian legal system to pursue criminal charges and crippling damages against a local newspaper and its editor. The supposed “crime”: allegedly damaging the reputation of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) through articles exposing corruption, lawlessness, cronyism, and nepotism within the Rome-based UN agency. It is hardly the first time the UN has sought to silence the press.
The Canadian Parliament is considering a "gender identity" bill, C-16, that could have dangerous free speech implications. The bill seeks to add "gender identity and gender expression" to the country's protected classes listed in the Canadian Human Rights Act; however, opponents of the measure fear it will force those who consider gender dysphoria a mental illness to remain silent on the issue.
