Open publishing was disabled on this site in mid-July 2016 as there was a very low volume of original grass roots news reports from activists being posted and the collective running the site was dwindling as people were working on other things.

#ANTIFA: #TEDDYBEARS #PICNIC @slatukip @dubdanu @siegfails @misscheeky666 @JLRFB

LESS THAN thirty brazen little crybabies escaped the clutches of mummy and daddy to parked their prams in Hyde Park for their annual Teddybears Trump Picnic, whilst policemen in riot gear stood guard for the nasty big bogeymen from the UAF, who had threatened to turn up and spoil the fun of the little Angels and cherubs of the EDL's Hitler Pre-School Division. Sealed off in a secluded part of the park, crouching on a bed of used condoms and dog dirt, when the policemen's backs were turned, several several wee nationalists got up to mischief, squatting down, emptying their diapers onto the grass. Several nationalist babies worse for wear, slipped face-first on faeces, proving a welcome diversion to the monotony of the same old tired and worn speeches.

Ambulance Targeting Was Based On Turkish Disinformation

It was an American-made helicopter abusing the name of a First Nations tribe which penetrated Syrian territory coming from Golan late June, in bright daylight approached a nameless Czech-made ambulance car, and fired a B7EV type air-to-ground missile killing a patient plus other inmates en route to a civilian hospital. One of many, too many casualties in a foreign-policy-fuelled war, it seemed, far too little a scandal to stand out among the daily dead – but now evidence leaked via the Alternative Intelligence Review site that this particular attack was triggered by Turkish surveillance authorities providing their Israeli counterparts with fake intelligence it would have been a senior Hamas operative wounded by insurgent snipers while seeking diplomatic contact with the Assad government. Yet instead Telaviv assassinated a Mongolian deli owner seeking stroke treatment. <br/>

#ANTIFA: TOMMY GOES ANTI-BLACK @slatukip @dubdanu @misscheeky666 @JLRFB @2FERDI7

ONCE a hardened Islamophobe goes anti-black, there's no turning back. Ex-leader of the English Defence League, Tommy Robinson, has, until now. shied away from openly supporting other forms of racism besides loathing Muslims, under strict orders from paymaster Pamela Geller to keep his hatred narrowly focused on one particular target. Under Geller's advice, Yaxley-Lennon established its notorious Uncle Tom divisions designed to masquerade the EDL's outright fascism as a purely anti-Muslim group, when, as known to just about everybody in the UK, EDL members are anti-everybody not from a straight, pure white Anglo-Saxon bloodline. Since the rise of Black Lives Matter, the worldwide antiracist organisation that campaigns against institutionalised anti-black racism, Tommy has returned to his BNP roots in tweeting hatred against black people, openly supporting the cold-blooded murders of innocent black men by US patrolmen.

Cameron´s Failure – No One´s Success – Yet

At times it is necessary to reveal the whole picture in order to make clear how much evil was prevented for the price of the trouble everyone found themselves confronted with. Had not days before the election, by losing temper when faced with anti-integration protesters, the German foreign minister with the statement that he could see Brussels from his office spoiled his party´s European election campaign, instead of a tired oligarch from Luxembourg there would now be a fiery fascist in its place. But Martin Schulz failed to take the powerful commissioner post and bring the manipulative zeal exercised in the Strasbourg parliament leadership to Brussels. Cameron´s grasp to deceive the British public with a contrarian straw-man from his old youth gang now has also failed. And deservedly so, making unequivocally clear that this is not a partisan crusade against liberals only or conservatives only, but an all-out campaign against the kind of democratic totalitarians who count everyone who ever had a landlord of the same name to their voter base regardless of people´s political will.

CDU/CSU coalition's collapse and the end of Merkel's career

Brexit is not the only challenge for the Chancellor of Germany. The collapse of CDU/CSU & SPD alliance in the Bundestag carries a much greater threat, nullifying the role of the Christian Democratic Union, which is the native one for Merkel. You can come just to such conclusions through analyzing the recent political developments and the correspondence that passed between the leader of European People's Party's faction, Joseph Daul, and the European Parliament's Member from the CDU, Herbert Reul.
