1, Parliament hill pro life demo: around 10,000 attend while a few dozen far left wing violent extremists attempt to hijack the agenda,
I am not posting this to take a side on the question of abortion on demand but to show that nearly every issue these days as seen by the far left wing violent extremists is actually just another angle of attack with the battering ram against classical civilization. Why Soviet flags? Why the masks and anger? These are the people who won already as aborting your baby right up to the point of full birth is perfectly legal in this country. Clearly the bulk of these leftists are just using the issue as a vector of attack. More at the Rebel.

Labour has suspended a party member who posted a link online claiming that “Jews control Britain and are committing genocide on us”. […]
Mr Ali tweeted a link to the blog post headed “Timeline Of The Jewish Genocide Of The British People” on Tuesday.
According to the article, British “jews swore their revenge” after being “finally expelled” from the country in 1290.
It then tells readers that “The jews financed Oliver Cromwell’s otherthrowing and beheading of Stuart King Charles I after he refused them control of England’s finances.”
“#Jews will pay 7times more for their #sins – #Islam will #unite the #religious world,” another tweet from November read.
Around 20 Labour Party members, activists, MPs and councillors have been suspended in recent months.

A Daily Caller News Foundation investigation reveals that Bill and Hillary Clinton received at least $100 million from autocratic Persian Gulf states and their leaders, potentially undermining Democratic presidential candidate Hillary’s claim she can carry out independent Middle East policies.
As a presidential candidate, the amount of foreign cash the Clintons have amassed from the Persian Gulf states is “simply unprecedented,” says national security analyst Patrick Poole.

American Special Operations troops have been stationed at two outposts in eastern and western Libya since late 2015, tasked with lining up local partners in advance of a possible offensive against the Islamic State, U.S. officials said.
Two teams totaling fewer than 25 troops are operating from around the cities of Misurata and Benghazi to identify potential allies among local armed factions and gather intelligence on threats, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive mission overseas.
The insertion of a tiny group of U.S. personnel into a country rife with militant threats reflects the Obama administration’s worries about the Islamic State’s powerful Libyan branch and the widespread expectations of an expanded campaign against it. For months, the Pentagon has been developing plans for potential action against the group, which has at least several thousand fighters in the coastal city of Sirte and other areas. And the U.S. personnel, whose ongoing presence had not been previously reported, is a sign of the acceleration toward another military campaign in Libya.
(Jan Böhmermann makes quite a powerful point. Laws like this are ripe for selective enforcement and never work out as people imagined they were meant to when conceived)
German comedian Jan Böhmermann has returned to television after a pause following a row over a poem insulting Turkey’s president. The German parliament is debating the law that has the satirist under investigation.
The German comedian at the center of a free-speech row over a crude poem about Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan returned to television late Thursday after a pause of several weeks. He said he would no longer make jokes about Adolf Hitler because it could be construed as disturbing the dead.
Jan Böhmermann, the front man of the comedy show “Neo Magazin Royale,” is under investigation for reading a poem on television in late March accusing Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of bestiality and pedophilia.

8. The US now engaged in quite a few wars. Quite a few more than Bush was in. I thought he was the peace guy.
Thank you Dumbstruck, Wrath of Khan, M., Gates of Vienna, and all who sent in links and thoughts.
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS SOCIAL MEDIA.
It is important that we absorb this truth. If we allow ourselves to think we have an unbiased voice accessible by all who may be interested, we will fall. There are few things more dangerous than a false sense of a level playing field. Find ways of making the truth known and use them. But most importantly, do not think that tweeting and Facebook gets the traction or makes the distance it would if they did not deliberately filter and bias against reality and reason based opinion.
Now and again attempts are made to create alt. social media that does not bias but they usually fail for lack of interest. When these things appear, check them out. if legit, join. Any other ideas please post to comments.
Also any recent articles about Facebook and Twitter bias please post to comments as well.
