UK To Build Trump Style Wall To Keep Out Illegal Migrants

Sean Adl-Tabatabai at Your News Wire - 6 minutes ago
The UK has announced plans to construct a “great wall” across one its most popular borders in order to stem the flow of illegal migrants coming in. Just two months after voting to leave the European Union, the UK have begun plans to build a 13-foot wall in Calais, where illegal crossings from France have quadrupled in recent years. Breitbart.com reports: UK Border Force guards on French soil stopped 84,088 illegal immigrants last year, figures released last month show. The new 13-foot (4 metre) high wall will be built of smooth concrete, making it hard toclimb, and will line the ro... more »

Goldman Sachs Threatens To Sack Employees Who Support Trump

Sean Adl-Tabatabai at Your News Wire - 6 minutes ago
Goldman Sachs have issued a set of strict new rules to their employees forbidding them from contributing to Donald Trump’s campaign. The new rule kicked in on September 1, and apply only to the firm’s partners. The memo detailing the rule specifically mentions the Trump-Pence campaign as an example of something partners cannot support. Fortune.com reports: The firm says the rules were meant to remove any implication of so-called “pay to play.” Four years ago, the bank paid $12 million to settle charges that a former Boston-based banker had picked up bond underwriting business in the...more »

Former Dutch PM Calls For Netanyahu To Be Tried For War Crimes

Sean Adl-Tabatabai at Your News Wire - 6 minutes ago
Former Dutch prime minister Dries van Agt has called for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to be tried for war crimes, during Netanyahu’s visit in The Hague on Tuesday. Van Agt says that the Jewish homeland should be relocated to Germany instead of Israel, arguing that the Israeli government are illegally occupying Palestinian land. Uprooted Palestinians reports: He told the NPO 1 public television channel on Monday that “a war criminal coming to this country” and that Netanyahu should be sent to the International Criminal Court (ICC). “The occupation and expansion… building...more »

The Home Office have confirmed that Assistant Commissioner Jon Stoddart, who spent almost four years as head of Operation Resolve, has been forced to resign due to severe health issues. Stoddart led the probe into the planning and preparation of the 1989 FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest.

I do not support "The Education for All Act" (HR 4481).

skrashen at Schools Matter - 32 minutes ago
Stephen Krashen September, 2016 H.R. 4481, the "Education for All Act" has been introduced in the US House of Representatives. The description: "To amend the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 to provide assistance for developing countries to promote quality basic education and to establish the goal of all children in school and learning as an objective of the United States foreign assistance policy, and for other purposes." Despite 4481's noble goals, I do not support it: 4481 appears to be supporting an approach for other countries that has not worked in the US. The Premise HR ... more »

France And Its Stance Against The Symbolic Repression Of Women Through Dress

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 1 hour ago
*- by Helen Klein* Reading *HuffPo* yesterday, an article written by Manuel Valls, Prime Minister of France, struck a chord. It should be a must read, especially for women. He wrote, In France, Women are Free, in response to the recent *NY Times* article, The Way People Look at Us Has Changed: Muslim Women on Life in Europe, by Lillie Dremeaux. Valls criticizes the perspective of this article, which he views as one sided, and he presents a coherent and well thought out defense of France’s position regarding the burqa. I found it courageous and heartening and a far different vers... more »

Seeing the 1980's in Stranger Things

Daniel Stack at 19th Level - 2 hours ago
The Netflix show *Stranger Things* takes place in autumn of 1983. The main protagonists are around twelve years old. As I watched it, the odd realization dawned on me that in autumn of 1983, I was twelve years old. I watched many of the episodes with my 14-year old daughter. I amused her when I had an epiphany that I actually owned one of the shirts that Mike wore. It was one of the most accurate depictions of the 1980's I've seen on television. There were some anachronisms here and there, but it was for the most part spot-on. Mike and his friends were a lot like me and my friend... more »

Did Chinese President Xi And Russian President Putin Humiliated President Obama At The G20?

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 2 hours ago
YouTube *Anders Åslund, Real Clear Defense*: *How Xi and Putin Humiliated Obama at the G-20* On September 4-5, the G-20 held its annual summit in Hangzhou, China, President Xi Jinping’s home. G-20 summits tend to be meaningless, but this one appears to have been outright harmful. The signature event was when President Barack Obama’s Air Force One was not met with a staircase, and it went downhill from there. During the global financial crisis in 2008-9, when the main economies in the world needed to come together to reassure global markets, the G-20 was relevant. Ever since, G-20... more »

Why I Voted for Jeremy Corbyn

Phil at All That Is Solid ... - 2 hours ago
In last year's Labour leadership contest and after much shilly-shallying, my vote went to Yvette Cooper. This year there was no hesitation: I duly ticked the box for Jeremy Corbyn. The passage from the poster woman for "sensible" managerial politics to Corbynism might be puzzling for some, so here are my reasons. First off, it's partly a protest. *Partly*. Over the last year, my dismay has grown over into disgust at the behaviour of the PLP. Of course, it's *not all of the PLP*. A minority are doing the behind doors briefing, and complaining loudly every time Jeremy so much as pick... more »

*"Starlight"* by Chet Raymo "Poor Calvin is overwhelmed with the vastness of the cosmos and no small dose of existential angst. He is not the first, of course. Most famously the 17th-century French philosopher Blaise Pascal wailed his own despair: "I feel engulfed in the infinite immensity of spaces whereof I know nothing and which know nothing of me. I am terrified...The eternal silence of these infinite spaces alarms me." And he didn't know the half of it.

It drains our energy, leaving less available for life in the present because we are constantly feeding an old issue. This attachment can cause illness the same way watering a dead plant creates decay.

"In a universe devoid of life, any life at all would be immensely meaningful. We ARE that meaning. "And what we see, "says the poet Mary Oliver, "is the world that cannot cherish us, but which we cherish." As though life itself is the great, universal, unrequited love of all time. But there is even more to this. Deep mystery. We are the universe aware of itself. We let the miracle get lost in distractions. On a planet so rich with living companions, much of humanity sentences itself to solitary confinement. Late at night, I used to lie in my boat listening to radio calls from ships... more »

Can We Have Some Privacy? (Scott Horton and Tom Keenan)

*An excerpt from, "Privacy: Six Questions for Garret Keizer" by Scott Horton, Harper's Magazine, August 22, 2012: * I locate the idea of privacy—what Louis Brandeis called “the right to be let alone”—in our creaturely resistance to being interfered with, used, or penetrated against our will. For me, the roots of privacy are as much in our physical bodies as in our legal traditions, and I see those roots intertwined with the human capacity to resist. The fiercest kinds of resistance, be they personal or national, are always in response to forced occupation. It is no surprise that all... more »

The Hajj Has Lost Its Spiritual Value For Deep Thinking Muslims

Anger and controversy surrounded *last year's Hajj* when a stampede ended the lives of thousands of Muslim pilgrims. To make matters worse, the classless imbeciles in the Saudi government refused to apologize to the victims' families. Instead of owing up to their error, they blamed the victims, saying that they didn't follow the proper procedures that were in place. This year's Hajj is also not going well, and it hasn't even started. *Saudi Arabia's top cleric said* Iranians and Shiites are not Muslims but their "main enemies."

In Persian lyric poetry “you can hardly find a sonnet that does not contain the wine, the bard and the beloved.” Hafiz, for example, was a 14th-century Persian poet who “lauded the joys of love and wine but also targeted religious hypocrisy.” Here for example: *Even though, to pious, drinking wine is a sin,Don't judge me; I use it as a bleach to wash the color of hypocrisy away.All that laughing and weeping of lovers must be coming from some other place;Here, all night I sing with my winecup and then moan for You all day.If someone were to ask Hafiz, "Why do you spend all... more »

Colin Powell and Hillary Clinton!

bob somerby at the daily howler - 8 hours ago
*WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2016Narrative all the way down:* We've just returned from a chic weekly luncheon. We were struck by a discussion which took place at that chic event. The discussion involved the email Colin Powell sent to Hillary Clinton. Yesterday, we discussed that email. It's described on page 11 of the newly-released FBI report.

*Global warming is causing Europe's glaciers to retreat by hundreds of feet a year (?) * *The article below is a bit of a mish-mash. It reports glacier retreat from 1850 and then skips to the year 2015. It is true that there has been some warming since 1850 so some retreat due to that might be expected. And it is true that 2015 was an anomalously hot year. But other details are omitted. The fact that Hannibal walked elephants over the Alps in the Roman warm period -- where glaciers are now -- suggests that glacial fluctuations are a natural phenomenon and that warming d... more »

Joachim Hagopian at American Empire Exposed - 9 hours ago

Yet in January 2016 all that changed overnight when the medical establishment and New World Order controllers unleashed Zika-mania hype as their latest fearmongering strategy designed to cause panic amongst the global population. It’s clearly another classic example of the Hegelian Dia... more »

And these attacks aren't retaliatory either.. it's just more of the same ongoing destabilization of Turkey. From the time the PKK ended the ceasefire with Turkey- Jane's obfuscates that fact with not so clever *spelling.* "A succession of attacks by the Partiya Karkerên Kurdistan (PKK) between 2... more »

Disney World To Scan Fingers Of Three Year Olds

Carol Adl at Your News Wire - 17 hours ago
Children as young as three will now be required to have their fingers scanned at the entrance to Disney World theme parks. The anti-fraud measure was introduced in order to block the use of stolen and shared tickets, but has been slammed as a violation of privacy on social media. Older children and adult visitors have already been having their fingers scanned for years. RT reports: “Walt Disney World has begun requiring children from 3 to 9 years old to have their fingers scanned when they enter the theme parks, just like older kids and adults,” the Orlando Sentinel, the first to re... more »

Easy Angry Bird Pinata!

Debra Hawkins at Housewife Eclectic - 17 hours ago
A few weeks back, I threw my kids a huge Angry Birds party. We did everything from play real Angry Birds to a Pinata. The kids had an amazing time, Angry Birds really lends itself to some fun activities and decorations! You can find the full party here, but today I am going to walk you through this easy pinata. Seriously, I am not sure a pinata can get easier than this one. I came together in about an hour and that INCLUDES drying time.

Euro-koruna cap may collapse already in 2016

Luboš Motl at The Reference Frame - 19 hours ago
The previous text on this topic of the Czech currency cap was posted on July 26th. So far, I am largely unprepared for the change (also owning several stock funds denominated in other currencies, without any insurance of the Forex risks) but wealthy and money-savvy TRF readers may do better. As Reuters reported yesterday, the shorting of the EUR-CZK currency pair may be the currency trade of 2017, according to ING (and surely others). Except that once all the people become familiar with the opportunity, events may speed up and the change may already materialize in 2016. For an olde... more »

ST GEORGE'S DAY REFLECTIONS The 23rd of April this year has been one of the best St. George's Days ever for the ordinary people of England. Although we were denied a National Holiday (all the other nations in the UK get one for their Saint's Days), many people took the day off to celebrate anyway. I was fortunate enough to be with a group of people doing just that. Our little group took the opportunity to explore a little of our Nation. We started in Sheffield and to our dismay the City Council were doing nothing to mark the day - or else it was so low-key we couldn't find anything.... more »

Graeme Decarie at The Decarie Report - 20 hours ago
The United States of 1776 was the offspring of an imperial power. In fact, the American revolution had less to do with freedom than it did with becoming an imperial power just like daddy. Get real. Read the American constitution. Then look at the United States as it was in 1776 and later. All people were created equal? Get serious. The biggest business in the U.S. growing cotton. And that needed slaves. And slaves were not equal. Nor for that matter were women. Nor were those men who didn't own property. As for motive to get rid of British power, in 1776 wealth came from land. The t... more »

The plans to build the world's new greatest collider in China have many prominent supporters – including Shing-Tung Yau, Nima Arkani-Hamed, David Gross, Edward Witten – but SixthTone and South China Morning Post just informed us about a very prominent foe: Chen-Ning Yang, the more famous part of Lee-Yang and Yang-Mills. He is about 94 years old now but his brain is very active and his influence may even be enough to kill the project(s).

Universities across California are implementing a controversial segregation policy, separating black students from everybody else, in an attempt to be “politically correct”. California State University Los Angeles has become the latest institution to offer segregated housing for black students. Surprisingly, the move comes in response to the Black Student Union insisting that the University meet a set of demands to deal with “microaggressions” by fellow professors and students on campus.
