    The armed forces have activated a team in a nuclear-proof bunker under the Ministry of Defence as the government prepares next Monday to enter "very high readiness mode" for a no-deal Brexit, Sky News can reveal. A number of war games have been conducted to help ready commanders for dealing with a range of possible eventualities in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

    U.K. HOME OFFICE CLAIM: CHRISTIANITY NOT PEACEFUL RELIGION Letter denying convert's bid for asylum also ridicules faith A wave of outrage is developing in response to a snarky letter from the U.K. Home Office denying a request for asylum from a Muslim-turned-Christian because officials said Christianity is not a peaceful religion and the convert didn’t really believe in it anyway. The case developed, the Express newspaper of London reported, when an Iranian national was rejected for asylum. An appeal is being pursued, and a wide range of officials and experts are blasting the action. The Home Office worker who dispatched...

    Key Democratic operatives and private investigators who tried to derail Donald Trump’s campaign by claiming he was a tool of the Kremlin have rebooted their operation since his election with a multimillion-dollar stealth campaign to persuade major media outlets and lawmakers that the president should be impeached. The effort has successfully placed a series of questionable stories alleging secret back channels and meetings between Trump associates and Russian spies, while influencing related investigations and reports from Congress. The operation’s nerve center is a Washington-based nonprofit called The Democracy Integrity Project, or TDIP. Among other activities, it pumps out daily “research”...

    M15: number of “far right” terrorism cases “absolutely dwarfed” by the number of jihad terror cases “The number of far-right terror cases the authorities are faced with is ‘absolutely dwarfed’ by the number of cases related to radical Islam, according to Britain’s Security Service, better known as MI5.” No matter how many lies and deceptions the establishment media and along with far Leftist politicians and leaders try to tell the public, it should be common knowledge by now that the global jihad is highly organized, with multiple networks working both stealthily and violently on a worldwide scale. On a daily...

    UK: Muslim migrant blames “immorality” in Newcastle for his violent 20-minute sexual assault on a “vulnerable” man It’s always someone else’s fault. Always. Ever the victim, no matter what the circumstances are. In Afghanistan and elsewhere in the Islamic world, this kind of behavior is broadly tolerated. Women are so devalued, men look to other men and boys for sexual pleasure. Also, the Qur’an promises not just virgins to the blessed, but boys like “scattered pearls”: “Those are the ones brought near in the Gardens of Pleasure, a company of the former peoples and a few of the later peoples,...

    EU leaders have agreed on a plan to delay the Article 50 process, postponing Brexit beyond 29 March. The UK will be offered a delay until 22 May, if MPs approve the withdrawal deal negotiated with the EU next week. If they do not, the EU will back a shorter delay until 12 April, allowing the UK time to get the deal through or to "indicate a way forward". Mrs May said there was now a "clear choice" facing UK MPs, who could vote for a third time on her deal next week.

    A newly unearthed batch of heavily redacted, classified emails from Hillary Clinton's personal email server revealed that the former secretary of state discussed establishing a "private, 100% off-the-record" back channel to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and that one of her top aides warned her that she was in "danger" of being "savaged by Jewish organizations, in the Jewish press and among the phalanx of neoconservative media" as a result of political machinations by "Bibi and the Jewish leadership." The 756-page group of new documents, revealed Thursday as part of a transparency lawsuit by Judicial Watch, seemingly contradicted Clinton's insistence...

    President Trump on Thursday said the U.S. will recognize Israeli control of the disputed Golan Heights territory, delivering a diplomatic win for prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu ahead of a tough reelection race. “After 52 years it is time for the United States to fully recognize Israel’s Sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which is of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and Regional Stability!” Trump tweeted. The announcement came days before Trump was scheduled to meet at the White House with Netanyahu, who has urged top U.S. officials to make the move. --This breaking news report will...

    The European Union has agreed to give the United Kingdom a short delay to Brexit — but only if Members of Parliament vote for Theresa May's deal next week. Leaders of the 27 other EU member states said on Thursday that they were prepared to extend the Article 50 withdrawal process until May 22, to give the UK time to prepare for its departure, according to draft conclusions obtained by several news organisation. The date coincides with the start of the European Parliament elections. However, the offer falls some way short of the three month extension ending on June 30...

    An online petition calling on U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May to cancel Brexit by revoking Article 50 has attracted nearly 1 million signatures, crashing the parliament's petitions website Thursday morning. Andrea Leadsom, leader of the House of Commons, said she had been made aware of technical problems with the site, the BBC reported, but she dismissed the petition as not being of the same significance as the 2016 Brexit referendum. "Should it reach 17.4 million respondents then I am sure there will be a very clear case for taking action," she told MPs, noting it is "absolutely right that people...

    Theresa May will make a direct plea to EU leaders later asking to postpone Brexit for three months, hours after telling the British public a delay was "a matter of great personal regret". At an EU summit in Brussels, she will try to persuade the other 27 countries to delay the UK's exit beyond 29 March. On Wednesday, the PM made a speech blaming the delay on MPs and telling the nation she was "on their side". Meanwhile, Jeremy Corbyn is also due in Brussels for separate Brexit talks.

    I realize I'm just another dumb white cishet male and therefore the source of all the problems in the world, but I am utterly baffled by the growing insistence that gender pronouns are a matter of opinion. Back in the old days, when "science" wasn't just a word you threw at a political opponent to make him shut up about the weather, you had boys and girls. Men and women. He and she, him and her, his and hers. Easy to remember, and backed up by an ancient system of arcane witchcraft called "biology." Sure, you had people who weren't...

    My first thought after hearing of this was, “I bet AOC and her ‘Squad’ in the House would welcome a law like this.”My second thought was, “Maybe AOC’s right that right-wingers spend too much thinking about her.”We should be thinking about Trump in this case, not her. You want looser libel laws to make it easier for him to sue the “fake news media”? Okay, but remember that the left will avail itself of those laws too. Call a male-to-female transgendered person a “he” on Twitter and who knows how much you might owe. Caroline Farrow said Surrey Police...

    The French foreign minister has said Paris could say no to Theresa May’s request for a Brexit extension if she does not set out a clear plan for the EU withdrawal agreement to be ratified by parliament....The foreign minister, Jean-Yves Le Drian, told the French parliament on Wednesday afternoon: “Our position is to send a simple and clear message to the British.” He said there were only two ways to leave the EU – ratify the withdrawal agreement or a no-deal exit. If the withdrawal agreement was not ratified by parliament “the central scenario is a no-deal exit. We’re ready.”...

    There is a story that is commonly told in Britain that the colonisation of India - as horrible as it may have been - was not of any major economic benefit to Britain itself. If anything, the administration of India was a cost to Britain. So the fact that the empire was sustained for so long - the story goes - was a gesture of Britain's benevolence. ..Britain drained a total of nearly $45 trillion from India during the period 1765 to 1938. It's a staggering sum. For perspective, $45 trillion is 17 times more than the total annual gross...

    Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan escalated his rhetoric tenfold Wednesday after he seemingly threatened to kill Europeans in "the streets" throughout "the world" if the current diplomatic row with Germany and the Netherlands continues. From The Independent: Turkey has been mired in a diplomatic row with Germany and the Netherlands after they banned Turkish officials from campaigning in support of an April referendum on boosting the Turkish President's powers. "If Europe continues this way, no European in any part of the world can walk safely on the streets," Mr Erdogan told journalists in Ankara.  He added: "We, as Turkey, call on...

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has issued a stern warning to anyone considering entering the country for anti-Muslim reasons in the wake of the Christchurch terrorist attack. The 65-year-old referenced the Gallipoli campaign during the First World War and said during a public speech on Monday that anyone with heinous motives for entering the country would return 'in coffins'. He highlighted the failed invasion of Gallipoli peninsula back in 1916, by allied forces such as Australia and New Zealand. 'Your grandparents came, some of them returned in coffins. If you come as well like your grandfathers, be sure that you...

    Theresa May’s crushing defeat in the House of Commons this week over her plan for Britain to leave the European Union was actually a great victory for her, provided that you make a simple assumption: that she and her colleagues never wanted Britain to leave the EU in the first place. ... Her appearance of negotiating with the EU was merely elaborate shadow-play. She never intended to produce the complete break that just over half the electorate — but not the political class — wanted. ... This is, in essence, the European approach to democracy: If the voters get the...
