    Right Wing News ^ | August 15, 2017 | Dave Blount
    Congratulations to the media on finding the perfect model family to encourage us to emulate. From the land we once called Great Britain: They are raising four-year-old Star Cloud as a ‘person’ and are telling him to ‘not get hung up’ on being a boy. Parents Nikki and Louise Draven say they are ‘just ordinary’ and are being ‘who they want to be’. Star calls Louise, 31, his mummy, but she [sic] is in fact his biological father and is transitioning to become a woman with hormone treatment. His mother Nikki really is a woman. But… Nikki used to work...
  • Drug-resistant 'Japanese fungus' infecting hospitals across the UK

    Sky News ^ | August 15, 2017 | By Bethany Minelle
    Hospitals across the UK have been hit by a drug-resistant Japanese fungus which has so far infected more than 200 patients. The potentially deadly superbug has spread to at least 55 hospitals and is particularly dangerous for anyone with a weakened immune system. Most worryingly, the fungus is resistant to the most commonly prescribed fungicidal drug, fluconazole, and the species has the ability to rapidly evolve to develop resistance. 'Candida auris' - which was first identified in the ear of a patient in Japan - is able to live both on the skin and inside the body. "Large" outbreaks have...
  • Retired RAF Tristars Will Get New Lives As Contracted Aerial Refuellers

    The Drive ^ | AUGUST 14, 2017 | TYLER ROGOWAY
    Nearly three years ago to the day I wrote about the Royal Air Force's retired fleet of Lockheed L1011 derived Tristar tankers being put up for sale. With nine aircraft available, some of them already outfitted for the tanker role, and for a very attractive price, the Tristars seemed like a perfect opportunity for a new private aerial refueling contractor to emerge. Now, this is exactly what has happened, with Tempus Applied Solutions of Texas buying six of the Tristars with the intention of entering the contracted aerial refueling market. Tempus Applied Solutions provides a wide range of aerospace products,...

    UK citizens ‘should be advised to leave Korean peninsula’ The Government should advise British nationals in the Korean peninsula to leave if the tensions over Kim Jong Un’s nuclear programme continue to ratchet up, a former head of the Royal Navy has warned. Admiral Lord West of Spithead said there was a “real risk” the current stand off between North Korea and the United States could escalate into an actual conflict, resulting in an exchange of nuclear weapons, with “catastrophic” consequences for the region. He said advising UK citizens to leave the peninsula and nearby Japan would send a message...
  • [Moslem] rapists handed lower sentences because their victims were white [UK]

    The Express ^ | August 12, 2017 | ZOIE O'BRIEN
    ASIAN RAPE gangs who target white teenagers are not handed longer jail sentences because of political correctness and fear among the judiciary, the Government’s senior legal advisor has said. Young, white girls have been brutally raped and sexually abused by extensive gangs of Asian men in towns and cities across Britain - yet when it comes to sentencing - the race aspect has been largely ignored, he claimed. Now legal experts are calling for British judges to properly defend the girls who are targeted because of their skin colour. The claims followed a horrific court case in Newcastle this week...

  • LGBT Community Claims Prince George As “Gay Icon” Over Simple Photograph

    The Activist Mommy ^ | August 12, 2017 | admin
    The LGBT community has sunk to a new low, claiming that 4-year-old Prince George is a “gay icon” simply because of a photograph in which he strikes an excited pose while boarding a helicopter. Apparently, the idea that any 3-year-old (the photograph in question was taken one day prior to Prince George’s 4th birthday) would be excited about boarding a helicopter is too much for progressives to grasp. Instead, they’ve got to sexualize and pervert even the most innocent of things.

    The Short Take-off Vertical Landing (STOVL) F-35B Lightning II test aircraft has performed maiden land based Ski Jump with on board UK specific weapons. The BF-2 aircraft piloted by Peter "Wizzer" Wilson performed the Ski Jump with Paveway IV LGB & MBDA ASRAAM short range air to air missile, from the Naval Air Station in Patuxent River, Maryland, United States. Four 500 lb Paveway IV laser guided bombs and two MBDA ASRAAM were integrated on external under wing pylons. Both of them can also carried in the internal weapon bay. This external weapon load out will be employed when payload...

    The Telegraph ^ | 11 AUGUST 2017 | AUGUST 2017
    The UK is likely to face an Islamist terrorist threat for the next 30 years, the former head of MI5 has warned. Jonathan Evans, who stepped down as director general of the spy agency in 2013, described the threat as a “generational problem” which will take decades to tackle. Lord Evans also claimed the Westminster Bridge attack earlier this year may have had an energising effect on extremists. Meanwhile, he said he would be “very surprised” if Russia had not tried to interfere in the UK's last general election. Lord Evans, who now sits in the House of Lords as...

    RIGHT now, a British Trident nuclear submarine is gliding deep beneath the waves, primed and ready to launch a devastating strike if the worst should ever happen. Our nuclear subs operate in the depths of the ocean, where nobody can detect them, and are always on alert to respond to the threat of a nuclear war. Trident sub commanders keep in contact with the surface as much as possible, but they're relatively cut off from Britain when on deployment. In the event of a sudden and unexpected strike, the sub crews may have no way of knowing exactly what's happening...

    Boris Johnson last night backed Donald Trump in the incendiary war of words between the US President and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un. Blaming the North Koreans for the crisis, the Foreign Secretary called on the communist regime to ‘fix it’. He said Britain was working with the US and other allies in the region to find a diplomatic solution to the stand-off between Pyongyang and Washington. ‘The North Korean regime is the cause of this problem and they must fix it,’ he said. ‘The international community is shoulder to shoulder in ensuring North Korea stops its aggressive acts.

    DUP leader Arlene Foster is rejecting pressure to introduce same-sex marriage and abortion in Northern Ireland, saying her support for traditional marriage and the unborn is resolute. Speaking on Monday, Mrs Foster expressed sadness that opponents of redefining marriage are branded ‘homophobic’ and ‘haters’. And following a separate meeting with pro-life supporters, she said the party would do everything in its power to uphold Northern Ireland’s current law on abortion.

    Argentina has grounded all the fighter jets in its air force - meaning it is being defended by just a few dozen propeller fighters first built in the 1970s. Thirty-five years after the country's military invaded and occupied the Falkland Islands, the economically beleaguered South American republic now has a worse air force than it did under dictator Leopoldo Galtieri in 1982. It was confirmed that all of its Lockheed Martin A-4AR Skyhawk jets - which are adaptations of the 1956 fighters it used in the Falklands War - had been grounded as the air force's working hours are cut...

    Seventeen men and one woman were found guilty of a host of sexual crimes against young women – many of them children – after a massive “grooming gang” was uncovered in Newcastle, England. The gang, made up of mostly Muslim Middle Easterners and South Asians (commonly referred to as just “Asian” in the U.K.) preyed upon white British girls, plying them with alcohol, marijuana, mephedrone and other drugs. The victims of sexual abuse were between the ages of 13 and 25. They were drugged unconscious and then raped or pressured into sex through physical or emotional abuse. According to the...

    BBC ^ | August 10, 2017 | By Matt McGrath
    Climate change has had a significant impact on the timing of river floods across Europe over the past 50 years, according to a new study. In some regions, such as southern England, floods are now occurring 15 days earlier than they did half a century ago. But the changes aren't uniform, with rivers around the North Sea seeing floods delayed by around eight days. The study has been published in the journal Science. Researchers have long predicted that a warming world would have direct impacts on these events but until now the evidence has been hard to establish. Prof Blöschitzel...

    The Royal Navy’s new supercarrier HMS Queen Elizabeth and her battle group met the U.S. Navy’s carrier USS George H.W. Bush in the North Atlantic for an exercise beginning on Aug. 1, 2017. The 10-day exercise Saxon Warrior 2017 “allows both U.S. and U.K. naval forces a chance to hone our interoperability skills,” said Rear Adm. Kenneth Whitesell, commander of Bush‘s Carrier Strike Group 2. “Particularly important is the alignment of U.S. carrier strike groups and the U.K. carrier strike group.” Both navies — and one NATO ally — sent ships and crews to the exercise. But one key component...
  • Spain won't seek to recover Gibraltar in Brexit talks: minister

    Spain will not set as a condition in Brexit talks that it recovers Gibraltar, its foreign minister said in a Sunday interview that could ease tensions over the disputed British territory. Nestled on Spain’s southern tip, Gibraltar has been under British control since 1713, but Madrid has long wanted it back. Authorities in the tiny rocky outcrop fear Spain will influence complex negotiations between the EU and Britain to leave the bloc to try and gain authority over Gibraltar. But in an interview with Spain’s conservative daily ABC, Alfonso Dastis said he didn’t want to “jeopardize” the deal by demanding...

    The Guardian published a cartoon on Thursday claiming there “unfortunately” isn’t “a plan to eradicate white people from the Earth.” In the Guardian‘s “First Dog on the Moon” cartoon, which was titled “‘Will even white people die?’ How to explain nuclear war to your kids,” two dogs can be seen discussing Donald Trump, North Korea, and Steve Bannon. After one of the dogs claims that “white supremacists” are in the White House, Dog 2 asks whether “there is a plan to eradicate white people from the Earth,” prompting Dog 1 to reply, “Unfortunately no.” The two dogs then engage in...
