UK Parliament Is Now A Safe Space

The UK Parliament – supposed home of free speech.

Commons Speaker John Bercow, whose post is supposed to be politically neutral, vetoed President Trump addressing Parliament during his state visit to the UK.

Commons Speaker John Bercow has dramatically vetoed President Trump addressing Parliament during his state visit to the UK later this year.

The Speaker was cheered loudly and applauded by MPs after he denounced the President and said he would refuse to invite him to Westminster.

The applause came at the end of a lengthy statement from Mr Bercow in which he said the House of Commons believes in equality and an independent judiciary.

Mr Bercow’s bombshell announcement came in response to a plea from Labour MP Steve Doughty, who has tabled a Commons motion calling on the parliamentary authorities to withhold permission.

Responding to Mr Doughty, Mr Bercow said there was no automatic right for foreign leaders to address Parliament during a visit to the UK, it was an earned honour.

He told MPs: “There are many precedents for state visits to take place to our country which do not include an address to both Houses of Parliament.”  Sky

Austria Notes Migrant Crime More Than Doubles In Two Years

After findings in Austria that migrant crime has more than doubled in two years, sex attacks had gone up 133 percent in 2016, and that 90 percent of the migrants are unemployable and are on government benefit payments, Austrian Interior Minister Wolfgang Sobotka suggests annual migrant intake of 37,500 be reduced to 17,000 per year.   Also if the number of migrants entering Austria exceeds 17,000 they will be housed in centers.

Austrian Interior Minister Wolfgang Sobotka has announced there were a total of 22,000 criminal complaints against migrants in 2016 – a significant increase since 2015.

The Interior Minister said the migrant criminal statistics had rapidly increased since 2014 causing a stir on social media. “In 2014, we had 10,400 asylum seekers who were suspected and reported, 2015 were 14,000, and 2016 were 22,000,” he said during an interview with Austrian television station ZiB 2. Mr. Sobotka then advocated a continuation of a limit on asylum applications per year, Kronen Zeitung reports

The report comes after Sobotka announced in December, having been probed by the anti-mass migration Freedom Party (FPÖ), that migrant sex attacks had gone up 133 percent in 2016.

Mr. Sobotka also spoke on the subject of employment for asylum seekers and claimed that up to 90 per cent of them had no prospects of finding work in Austria at the present time and have ended up on government benefit payments.

Jobs are an important part of the integration process, Sobotka argued, claiming that real integration can only work “if we can offer jobs to people”.

Sobotka’s party, the Austrian People’s Party (ÖVP), have proposed that the current migrant limit of 37,500 be reduced to 17,000 going forward. When asked what the government would do with any asylum seekers who came after the number had been reached, Sobotka said that many would be housed in reception centres near the border or near airports.

Sobotka noted that Austria had been more successful in carrying out deportations than many other European Union (EU) member states saying that the country had become the “European repatriation champions”. He said that Austria had provided the most help to migrants who were being sent back to their home countries.  BreitBart

Swedish Policeman Reported To The Police As A ‘Racist’ For Telling The Truth

In an exasperated rant on Facebook in Swedish, Peter Springare a police investigator and former deputy head of the Division for serious crimes at the police in Örebro spoke plainly about those who are behind the serious crimes in Sweden.

The report to the police came after the local newspaper Nerikes Allehanda found the outspoken policeman to be racist, the usual solution to silence any criticism in the politically correct country. Speisa

Springaree added, in a new post: “If you can’t discuss the problem of crime among immigrants without it being called racist propaganda, things are very bad.”

Here is what he wrote:

“I’m so fu*king tired. What I will write here below, is not politically correct. But I do not care. What I will tell to you taxpayers is forbidden to tell by us state employees. It results in the loss of career and loss of individual salaries. Even if it’s true. I do not care about all this. I will soon retire anyway, after 47 years in this business. I will now and every week going forward, in detail account for what I as an investigator of the serious crimes unit of the police in Örebro work with. It will not harmonize with BRÅ’s (statistics) perception or other leftist criminologists perception in the public debate.

Our pensioners are on their knees, the school is one of chaos, health care is an inferno, police have been completely destroyed, etc, etc. Everyone knows why, but no one dares or wants to talk about the reason, because Sweden has always lived on the myth of the magnificent ultimate society that has unlimited resources to be in the forefront when it comes to being the only politically correct option in a dysfunctional world that has bend over itself, through the destructive behavior of various religions name.

Here we go; This I have handled Monday-Friday this week: Rape, rape, aggravated rape, assault, rape, extortion, blackmail, abuse of judicial procedure, threats, violence against the police, threat to the police, drug trafficking, aggravated drug offenses, attempted murder, rape again, extortion again and beatings.

Suspected perpetrators; Ali Mohamad Mahmod, Mohammed, Mohammed Ali, again, again, again, Christoffer … huh, it is true. Yes a Swedish name popped into the outskirts of a drug offense, Mohammed Mahmod Ali, again and again.

Countries represented this week, all crimes: Iraq, Iraq, Turkey, Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia, Somalia, Syria again, Somalia, unknown country, unknown country, Sweden. Half of the suspects, we can not know for sure because they have no valid papers. Which in itself often means that they lie about the nationality and the identity.

Now we’re talking only about Örebro. And these crimes occupy our investigative capacity to 100%.

This is how it looks and has looked like for the last 10-15 years.

Will return next Friday with an account of the past week.”

Dutch Doctor Drugged A Patient’s Coffee Then Had Her Family Hold Her Down As She Fought Not To Be Killed – But Did Not Break The Country’s Euthanasia Laws

A shocking case from Holland, a Dutch woman doctor had an elderly patient’s family hold her down, as she violently fought, while a fatal drug dose was administered. The doctor has been cleared under Holland’s Regional Review Committee.

Jacob Kohnstamm, chairman of the Regional Review Committee, which considered the case, said: “I am convinced that the doctor acted in good faith, and we would like to see more clarity on how such cases are handled in the future.” telegraph

This was cold blooded murder.

A Dutch woman doctor who drugged an elderly woman and then asked her family to hold her down as she fought desperately not to be killed did not break the law, according to medical experts citing the country’s euthanasia legislation.

The shocking case was referred to the so-called Regional Review Committee in the Netherlands which admitted that while the case involved some irregularities that merited a reprimand, the female doctor had effectively acted in good faith.

However they also added that the case should come to court so that judges can confirm that any other doctor who acts in good faith when providing euthanasia to people with dementia cannot be prosecuted.

Don’t be a problem patient

In the latest controversial incident the unnamed woman, who was over 80, reportedly suffered from dementia and had earlier expressed a desire for euthanasia when she deemed that ‘the time was right’.

As her situation deteriorated, it became difficult for her husband to care for her, and she was placed in a nursing home.

Medical paperwork showed that she often exhibited signs of fear and anger, and would wander around the building at nights. The nursing home senior doctor was of the opinion that she was suffering intolerably, but that she was no longer in a position where she could confirm that the time was now right for the euthanasia to go ahead.

However the doctor was of the opinion that the woman’s circumstances made it clear that the time was now right.  The doctor secretly placed a soporific in her coffee to calm her, and then had started to give her a lethal injection.

Yet while injecting the woman she woke up, and fought the doctor. The paperwork showed that the only way the doctor could complete the injection was by getting family members to help restrain her.

It also revealed that the patient said several times ‘I don’t want to die’ in the days before she was put to death, and that the doctor had not spoken to her about what was planned because she did not want to cause unnecessary extra distress. She also did not tell her about what was in her coffee as it was also likely to cause further disruptions to the planned euthanasia process.

The Review Committee concluded that the doctor ‘has crossed the line’ by giving her the first sleeping medicine, and also should have stopped when the woman resisted.

The paperwork and the recommendations of the committee are now being considered by prosecutors and health officials.

Kohnstamm said he was in favour of a trial: ‘Not to punish the doctor, who acted in good faith and did what she had to do, but to get judicial clarity over what powers a doctor has when it comes to the euthanasia of patients suffering from severe dementia.’  DailyMail

Over 1,000 Police Officers In Anti-Terror Raid In Central Germany

1,100 police officers to arrest 16, must be a no go zone.  Too little too late, but a good start anyhow.  It is an election year in Germany.

Some 1,100 German police officers conducted surprise raids on 54 flats, mosques, and industrial facilities in a large-scale operation that nabbed 16 terrorist suspects on Wednesday, including a recruiter and human trafficker linked to Islamic State.

Today’s operation in the central German state of Hesse followed a separate night raid in Berlin on Tuesday that led to the detention of three suspects with alleged links to Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL), local media reports.

Sixteen suspects from 16 to 46 years old were detained in several cities, including Frankfurt, Offenbach, and Darmstadt. They are being investigation for having possible links to Islamic State, according to Bild RT

Berlin

Three suspects with alleged links to the Islamic State terrorist group have been arrested in Berlin. Prior to the arrests – a mosque, which Christmas market attacker Anis Amri frequented – was raided, according to media reports.

Berlin police arrested three people late Tuesday, the Bild newspaper reported, citing the prosecutor’s office.

German security agencies are reportedly investigating an alleged “state-threatening” offence, however it remained unclear whether the suspects had any concrete plans to carry out an attack in Berlin. All of them are being investigated on suspicion of radicalism and links to Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorist group.RT

UK: No More Weekend Changing Of The Guard Ceremonies At Queen’s Windsor Castle Due To Fears Of Terror Attacks

The popular Changing the Guard ceremony at Windsor Castle has been scrapped because of concerns that tourists could be targeted by jihadists carrying out a truck attack.  The guard ceremony is said to be “one of the highlights of a visit to Windsor Castle” and draws the most tourists.

Windsor Castle has cancelled Changing the Guard ceremonies amid fears of a terror attack after devastating incidents in Berlin and Nice last year.

The longstanding tradition will no longer take place on Saturdays due to concerns over the possibility that jihadists could target the thousands of tourists who gather to enjoy the show.

Changing the Guard at Buckingham Palace has also changed to fixed days in order to prevent an attack – with armed police accompanying the guards…

Thames Valley Police ordered top military officials to alter the ceremonial timetable avoid the busiest times in the week in the wake of the Berlin attack.

Troops will now only perform the ceremony on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Security has also been ramped up, with armed police checkpoints and road closures. Express

British Medical Association – Expectant Mothers Are To Be Referred To As ‘Pregnant People’

The British Medical Association is under the delusion that men can get pregnant.

“Transgender people are unfortunately suffering from a significant mental illness that is deeply harmful, and it’s not a solution to pretend that transgender people are the sex that they think they are in their head.  Biology is biology; men can’t magically become women, and women can’t magically become men.”  – Ben Shapiro

First they came for our loos, insisting that it was prejudicial simply to label them ‘Men’ and ‘Women’. Then they came for our children, preaching a gospel of transgender rights in schools and playgrounds.

Now they have come for our wombs, for the precious privilege of calling ourselves mothers. And that, I’m afraid, is a game-changer. This madness must end.

From now on, expectant mothers — in other words pregnant women — are to be referred to as ‘pregnant people’ in order not to offend the sensibilities of members of the transgender community.

What is even more extraordinary is that this is not some half-baked agenda dreamed up by members of a student lobby group, but official new guidance issued by no less an august institution than the British Medical Association.

In a new advisory booklet entitled A Guide To Effective Communication: Inclusive Language In The Workplace, the BMA’s 160,000-odd members are informed that ‘a large majority of people that have been pregnant or have given birth identify as women’.

The idiocy of this statement alone is enough to make my hackles rise. But it gets worse: ‘However, there are some intersex men and trans men who may get pregnant.’

I’m sorry, come again? Yes, that’s right: the BMA is labouring under the delusion that men can become pregnant. (Intersex, by the way, refers to a person born with a reproductive or sexual anatomy that doesn’t fit the typical definitions of female or male.)

This from a supposedly scientific body established almost 200 years ago with the express intention of, among other things, guarding against quackery, is frankly unforgivable.

Because men, it’s a well understood fact, cannot get pregnant. Only women can get pregnant. That is because (and it pains me to have to state the obvious) only women have ovaries and wombs and, therefore, only women have the biological equipment to bear children.

It therefore follows that if a person is pregnant she must by definition be a woman. Granted, she may not wish to be a woman, she may not like being a woman or dress as a woman or style her hair as a woman or even resemble one. She may even be transitioning to become a man — but if she still possesses a functioning womb she is, nonetheless, in biological terms a woman.  DailyMail

Queen’s Chaplain Resigns Over Glasgow Cathedral Koran Reading

Parts of the Koran read from the pulpit in Glasgow Cathedral on the Feast of the Epiphany:

34 That is Jesus, the son of Mary — the word of truth about which they are in dispute.
35 It is not [befitting] for Allah to take a son; exalted is He! When He decrees an affair, He only says to it, “Be,” and it is.
36 [Jesus said], “And indeed, Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him. That is a straight path.”

These extra Ayah teach two clear things. First, Jesus is not the son of God and is not divine. Second, Jesus should not be worshipped. These are the two doctrines that were proclaimed from the pulpit in Glasgow Cathedral on the Feast of the Epiphany, the celebration of Jesus being revealed to the nations.VirtualOnline

The Rev Gavin Ashenden resigned as Queen’s chaplain after he defended the faith by speaking up about the Koran reading at Glasgow Cathedral.

He said that he had to make a choice between the “important honour” of continuing in the role of royal chaplain, and having the ability to speak out on matters he felt strongly about…

“I am fairly clear in my own mind that my duty to my conscience, to my order, to my understanding of Christianity and my vocation is that I am supposed to be speaking out in the public space on behalf of the Christ I serve.”

A chaplain to the Queen has resigned after publicly criticising a church that allowed a Koran reading during its service as part of an interfaith project.

The Rev Gavin Ashenden, who until this week was one of the 33 special chaplains to the Queen, said the reading was “a fairly serious error” and one which he had a duty to speak out about.

“There are things we should not tolerate because they are destructive,” he told BBC Radio 4’s Sunday programme.“I don’t accept the rather feeble accusation that intolerance is a bad thing.”

During a service at St Mary’s Episcopal in Glasgow earlier this month to mark the feast of the Epiphany, there was a reading of a passage from the Koran which said that Jesus was not the son of God. Telegraph

Swedish Woman Gang-Raped, Live-Streamed On Facebook

Sweden has deliberately chosen a path of self-destruction.

Sick.

Three men have been arrested in Sweden on suspicion of gang-raping a woman, after one allegedly live-streamed the crime on a closed Facebook page.

According to Sweden’s Aftonbladet tabloid, the alleged crime took place in an apartment in the city of Uppsala early on Sunday morning. The victim was reportedly close to unconscious.

Josefine Lundgren, 21, alerted the police at 8.24am on Sunday morning as soon as she realised what was happening on the closed group, of which she is one of 60,000 members.

“He tore off her clothes and lay down on top of her,” Lundgren told Expressen.

“You have been raped,” one of the men said to the woman at the end of the broadcast before laughing, according to the paper. “Three against one, ha ha ha,” one of the members of the closed group then commented under the feed. thelocal.se

Aftonbladet daily spoke to some of the members of the closed Facebook group in which the “aggravated rape” was reportedly broadcast live. Witnesses said the girl being gang-raped was close to unconscious at the time.RT

On Flashback, Sweden’s largest internet forum, users who said they witnessed the alleged rape as it was broadcast identified the attackers as a group of men of Middle Eastern appearance. BreitBart

Silly French Authorities

At the start of 2017 we’re still looking back at 2016.
Today’s cartoon is based on a story reported in many places including Israel National News. DryBonesBlog

Paris rejected Israeli software which could have stopped attack

A groundbreaking Israeli security system could have helped French authorities prevent the Paris massacre last November – but authorities balked at the deal under pressure from the anti-Israel boycott movement.

Speaking to Fox News, an Israeli counter-terrorism source with intimate knowledge of both the software involved and the deal itself said that after the Charlie Hebdo and Hyper Cacher attack the previous January an Israeli company offered to provide French authorities with special terrorist-tracking software, which could well have enabled them to flag the ISIS terrorist network operating under their noses.

But although the French were initially very keen on the idea, they ultimately rejected it, the source said.

“French authorities liked it, but the official came back and said there was a higher-level instruction not to buy Israeli technology,” he told Fox News. “The discussion just stopped.”

The technology enables intelligence agencies to “connect the dots”, by aggregating and analyzing fragmented intelligence from multiple sources to provide a clear, comprehensive assessment. It has already been shared with the US and other Israeli allies, and helps to pinpoint terror suspects and other persons of interest to investigators.

The source claimed it could well have helped stop the Paris attacks, and potentially the more recent Brussels attacks as well, which were carried out by the same ISIS terror network. INN

Advance Planning Of Migration Wave Into Germany

What is Merkel’s agenda?  Does she want to destabilize Germany and the EU and destroy the economy of Germany and the EU?

Is the German Chancellor a Russian agent (interesting read and food for thought)?   German industry “has strong ties to both Russia and Iran.”  Merkel has made Germany dependent on “Russian gas and oil by terminating Germany’s nuclear energy program.” Now the migrant invasion.  What is Merkel’s agenda?

The migration wave was planned in advance.

Part of an article in the Polish news portal Dziennik.pl.

It describes the experience of a Polish couple who purchased a hotel in Bavaria, only to be forced to sell it to the German government as “refugee” housing.

The interesting piece of information in this story is the government order to acquire mass housing for migrants three years before Chancellor Angela Merkel invited in the entire third world.

When they bought the 200-year-old house in an idyllic Bavarian village, they thought they had found themselves in a paradise. They wanted to turn the house into a hotel, with its own bakery, coffee shop, and a restaurant. It was in a village that was extremely popular with tourists. Now nobody goes there any longer. All the hotels and most large houses were turned into refugees shelters, and arson became a common occurrence. The media don’t mention it, however. Before their very eyes Germany was turning into a Muslim country: thefts, vandalism, and rubbish everywhere became the norm.

When they first began renovation of the largest house in town, they thought it would prosper, but around 2011 Angela Merkel changed her policies. Continue reading Advance Planning Of Migration Wave Into Germany
