‘One of Britain’s most senior judges actively campaigned to support a vile paedophile group that tried to legalise sex with children, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.
Lord Justice Fulford, named last year as an adviser to the Queen, was a key backer of the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) which police suspect of abusing children on an ‘industrial scale’.
An investigation by the Mail on Sunday has discovered that Fulford was a founder member of a campaign to defend PIE while it was openly calling for the age of consent to be lowered to just four.’
‘In response to the Mail’s shocking reports about the past links between paedophile activists and the National Council for Civil Liberties (NCCL), in which Dromey was a leading figure, he has behaved like the old union boss he used to be, making his noisy protests and playing the victim card.
The Mail’s stories, he declares, are nothing but ‘a smear’ and ‘a new low in journalism’, as he shows not the slightest shame about the affiliation of the Paedophile Information Exchange to the NCCL at a time when he was not only an executive member but also the civil rights organisation’s chairman.
Dromey even attended the notorious meeting of the NCCL executive in February 1976 that agreed to push for the age of consent to be lowered to just ten — although he has made it clear he did not agree with the proposal.’
‘Ukraine’s interim prime minister has said he has invited the NATO Council to hold a meeting in Kiev over the recent developments in the political crisis in the country.
“I invited the North Atlantic Council to visit Kiev and hold a meeting there,” Arseny Yatsenyuk said Thursday during a visit to Brussels, where he met with NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen and EU officials.
“We believe that it will strengthen our cooperation,” Yatsenyuk said.
He also reiterated Ukraine’s request for additional military aid from NATO “to strengthen the country’s defenses on the technical level.”‘
‘Speculation was growing last night that American mercenaries had been deployed to Donetsk after videos emerged of unidentified armed men in the streets of the eastern Ukrainian city.
At least two videos published on YouTube earlier this week show burly, heavily armed soldiers with no insignia in the city, which has been gripped by pro-Moscow protests.
In one of the videos onlookers can be heard shouting ‘Blackwater! Blackwater!’ as the armed men, who wear no insignia, jog through the streets.’
‘According to a report in Kommersant-Ukraine, the finance ministry of Washington’s stooges in Kiev who are pretending to be a government has prepared an economic austerity plan that will cut Ukrainian pensions from $160 to $80 so that Western bankers who lent money to Ukraine can be repaid at the expense of Ukraine’s poor.
It is Greece all over again.
Before anything approaching stability and legitimacy has been obtained for the puppet government put in power by the Washington orchestrated coup against the legitimate, elected Ukraine government, the Western looters are already at work. Naive protesters who believed the propaganda that EU membership offered a better life are due to lose half of their pension by April. But this is only the beginning.
The corrupt Western media describes loans as “aid.” However, the 11 billion euros that the EU is offering Kiev is not aid. It is a loan. Moreover, it comes with many strings, including Kiev’s acceptance of an IMF austerity plan.’
‘Garden favourites such as the Virginia creeper and Hottentot fig are likely to be top of the list along with several types of rhododendron.
The aim is to eliminate invasive non-native species that threaten to cause problems in the countryside.
However, the Royal Horticultural Society last night expressed its concern at the secrecy behind the decision-making and warned that whole species, including garden hybrids, could end up being banned.
Under the new rules, authorities will have the power to come into people’s homes and destroy plants, including popular shrubs such as cotoneasters, which could well be on the banned list.’
‘Dealing with Britain’s debts must not be done solely through attacks on public pending and welfare, the Lib Dems said today.
In a swipe at the Tories, Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander said ‘there is such a thing as society’ as he warned the wealthiest must be made to pay their fair share.
He also used a speech to the Lib Dem conference in York to dismiss ‘feeble’ Tory attempts to claim the income tax cut as their own policy, and signalled people who earn up to £12,500 should pay no income tax at all.’
‘The Coalition is facing fresh embarrassment over the issue of immigration after a senior Cabinet minister was forced to admit he employed a Portuguese cleaner.
Danny Alexander, the Chief Secretary to the Treasury, began to stutter and stumble during a live radio interview on Saturday after being asked if he employed immigrants. At first Mr Alexander, a Liberal Democrat, avoided the question.
Asked by Mishal Husain, the presenter of Radio 4’s Today programme, “Do you employ anyone from another country?” Mr Alexander replied: “Er, er, urm, er, erm … in the Treasury there are people from all around the world working in the, er, Treasury.”
Miss Husain then explained her question referred to Mr Alexander’s own household, not the large Government department where he works.
Pressed on whether he employed any foreigners, Mr Alexander finally responded: “Er, ar, er, er … we use a brilliant British, er … child minder and a, er… Portuguese lady occasionally comes in to clean our home.”’
‘Immigrants should be allowed to move their extended families to the UK more easily, the Liberal Democrats will say.
They are to propose that rules should be changed so that it is less difficult for the spouses and elderly grandparents of migrants to move to Britain.
The plan to water down immigration rules will be unveiled at the Lib Dems’ current spring conference in York.’
‘MPs are in line for an extra week off, adding to mounting evidence the Coalition is running out of things to do.
Government sources last night confirmed they are considering giving MPs an additional week’s holiday, fuelling criticism that with so few laws to debate, and more than a year to go before the next election, the Commons and Lords are turning into a ‘Zombie Parliament’ of part-time politicians.
It follows an announcement last week in the Lords, that peers are to get an extra five days off at Easter.’
‘The inexplicable and increasingly worrying symptoms had been plaguing me for more than a year when, in December 2007, aged 46, I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS).
There had been problems with my balance to the point where I couldn’t walk without a stick, numbness throughout my body, slurred speech and, most upsetting of all, a clumsiness in my hands that left me unable to play the guitar.
After examining my set of scans, a distinguished professor of neurology looked at me sympathetically and explained that I was among the worst new cases she had seen.’
‘Britain’s most senior policeman has failed in an attempt to use secret court hearings to force journalists and whistleblowers to hand over confidential material.
Scotland Yard boss Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe used a secret hearing to try to make BSkyB – owners of Sky News – reveal correspondence between one of its reporters and sources within the SAS.
The broadcaster successfully appealed against the decision in the High Court but the Met was still determined to overturn the ruling and establish the principle that it could submit secret evidence in closed hearings, and took the case to the Supreme Court.
However, The Mail on Sunday understands that the Supreme Court has rejected his demand. Its ruling is due to be published on Wednesday.’
‘A BBC review proposed scrapping the licence fee in favour of subscriptions, it has been reported.
A 12-strong panel established by James Purnell, the corporation’s director of strategy and digital, is said to have made the recommendation to the BBC’s executive board. However, on Saturday night the BBC denied the claim.
The panel, which was formed last year to provide an outside assessment of the BBC’s future, said the licence fee should be retained until 2020, according to the Sunday Times.
The disclosure came after the Telegraph revealed that ministers have backed radical plans to decriminalise refusals to pay the fee.’
‘In what may prove to be bad news for a one-thousand mile swath of the United States, the Yellowstone supervolcano may be on the brink of a massive explosion that would be categorized as an extinction level event (ELE).
In fact, recent reports suggest that ancient Helium4 gas has breached the surface layers of Yellowstone’s crust,escaping into the atmosphere. Now couple that with the recent and abrupt ground level rise in the park–and we may be looking at a spell for disaster.
I mean after all, as Michio Kaku, famous theoretical physicist, pointed out on a Jan. 2011 CNN newscast, “When it blows [Yellowstone] it could destroy the United States as we know it. [...] That’s what is making us nervous”’
‘Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, Iain Duncan Smith MP, has been accused of being a coward after making a quick escape via the back door of a Jobcentre, rather than confront a group of protesters waiting for him outside.
Iain Duncan Smith was visiting a Jobcentre in Bath to see how a trial of his flagship Universal Credit welfare reform, which rolls a number of state benefits into one single monthly payment, was performing in the city.
Around 26 protesters had gathered in front of the Jobcentre hoping to confront the Tory MP after a local council report suggested that coalition welfare cuts were fuelling a housing crisis in the city.’
‘A blundering Bedroom Tax minister has slipped up again – by saying he doesn’t know why hungry people go to food banks, reports the Sunday People.
Posh Tory Lord Freud dropped his astonishing clanger as Labour’s Baroness Lister quizzed him about welfare cuts “driving more families to food banks”.
The Welfare Minister replied: “Clearly nobody goes to a food bank willingly. However, it is very hard to know why people go to them.”
His outrageous comment in the House of Lords last week angered the Trussell Trust charity , which runs 420 food banks.’
‘Earlier this week we noted that an invasion of the Ukraine by Vladimir Putin would likely lead to a complete destruction of U.S. stock markets. It’s not so much the invasion force itself, but rather, the economic maneuvers that would come with it should Russia take this course of action.
Well known economist and founder of the Shadow Stats web site John Williams seems to agree. If Russia were to begin unloading US Dollars it would almost instantly lead to a collapse of not only our financial markets, but our entire way of life. And while Russia alone may not have the economic power to single-handedly crush the U.S. economy, if their trading partners and allies like China got into the mix, coupled with front-running investors who may suspect the move is about to happen, it could well be a blood bath on a global scale.
This wouldn’t even be an issue if the U.S. economy were operating at healthy levels, but as Williams notes in the following interview with Greg Hunter’s USA Watchdog, it’s anything but:’
A defamation order has forced this exceptional and extraordinary couple to shut down their Canadian political forum under threat of prison after yet another legal action by the serial litigant Richard Warman.

Nearly ten hours of cutting edge information researched, compiled and presented by David Icke that you will hear nowhere else in the world put together in this way.
‘Obama is cementing his redefinition of America by federalizing the minds of its future: children. The federal Common Core program seeks to “align” the curriculum and standards of public school systems that have been under state jurisdiction. The program is said to be voluntary but then, so are taxes.
The incentives to adopt Common Core are huge; for example, adoption is required for any state that wants a bite out of an allocated $4.35-billion. Moreover, adoption offers a state exemption from the widely despised No Child Left Behind Act by which states are required to assess the basic skills of students. No wonder 45 states signed on in 2011, far before the program was finalized.
The federal rollout has been so disastrous that Common Core is being dubbed ObamaCore because it does to education what ObamaCare is doing to health care. Both teachers and parents are protesting, and for much the same reason. Teachers are virtually relegated to reading from a national script in the classroom, with little personal input being allowed. Parents and local authorities are effectively shut out of influencing their children’s education. And the quality of education has hit a new low.’
‘He was beaten almost beyond recognition by two Lakeland Police officers and now he has filed a federal civil rights claim against the officers, the City of Lakeland, and the current and former police chief.
The man filling the suits, Joe Florence, blames a young police officer who he says didn’t have enough training for losing his cool and repeatedly striking him in the face.
Florence says, “The officer got in my face very quick … he was aggressive.” That’s how Joe Florence says the beating started.
It happened two years ago as Lakeland Police officers were serving a trespass warrant. After receiving the trespass warning — because he had mowed and watered his neighbor’s lawn — Florence started to go inside his home.
Florence remembers, “and I put my hand on the door knob and that’s when the officer, the male officer, I don’t know who he is, went off on me. “ Florence says during the beating, which was photographed by his wife, officers Heather Freeman and Nicholas Ivancevic tasered him and smashed his face into the concrete sidewalk.’
‘Few notice the “spotter car” from Manny Sousa’s repo company as it scours Massachusetts parking lots, looking for vehicles whose owners have defaulted on their loans. Sousa’s unmarked car is part of a technological revolution that goes well beyond the repossession business, transforming any industry that wants to check on the whereabouts of ordinary people.
An automated reader attached to the spotter car takes a picture of every license plate it passes and sends it to a company in Texas that already has more than 1.8 billion plate scans from vehicles across the country.
These scans mean big money for Sousa — typically $200 to $400 every time the spotter finds a vehicle that’s stolen or in default — so he runs his spotter around the clock, typically adding 8,000 plate scans to the database in Texas each day.’
‘The climate engineering corporate media/military/industrial complex is doing their best to create a very deceptive picture for much of the American population. They want the public to believe the whole world is as cold as the “engineered cool down” areas of the US and Canada, but this is a lie.
First, how “balanced” is the NOAA map below? Does this map look “unusual”? It should, meteorologically speaking. This map is quite profound, and it gets worse throughout the year as the maps continue through this article. The totally unbalanced temperatures from west to east are the telltale signs of massive climate engineering.’
‘“Don’t Make Me Go Back, Mommy”, is a children’s book published in 1990 written by author Doris Sanford. According to the book’s description:
“The words of the text and the objects and situations illustrated are based on months of intensive research into the nature and practice of satanic ritual abuse. Any child who has been ritually abused will recognize the validity of this story.”
The book was marketed primarily to mental health professionals, school counselors, parent organizations, and support groups. The summary on the back of the book reads:
“When five-year-old Allison’s parents begin to see a change in her behavior at home, they seek professional help for her. They find that Allison and other children have been ritually abused at a day care center. Thus begins Allison’s recovery through counseling and through her parents’ affirmations that it was not her fault, that she is precious and loved, and they will keep her safe.”’
‘Even as revelations continue to emerge about the full extent of government surveillance, and databases of every stripe seem to be on the rise, we cannot ignore some of the victories.
Little by little, we are beginning to see a roll-back of some of the surveillance state.
From highways to small towns, the high-tech surveillance grid is being exposed and is provoking outrage among fully informed citizens. In recent months we have seen Seattle police deactivate a Wi-Fi surveillance network after it was exposed that the little white boxes identified across the city were really a mesh network that could surveil any member of the public possessing an Internet-ready device.’
‘Petaluma, California’s Rancho Feeding Corporation recalled 8,742,700 pounds of meat products in February after the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) determined that the meat came from uninspected, “diseased and unsound” animals.
“Thus, the products are adulterated, because they are unsound, unwholesome or otherwise are unfit for human food and must be removed from commerce,” FSIS concluded.
The massive recall resulted in Nestlé voluntarily recalling a bunch of it’s Philly Steak & Cheese variety of Hot Pockets.’
‘Learning to find your own way in this backward world is no easy task. Our indoctrination into this culture and society is different for everyone, of course, but a common principle instilled in us is that certain members of our community are to be revered as credible by virtue of their professional status, age, wealth, or association with certain institutions, government agencies, etc.
This rule is applied at colleges, in business, when dealing with legal matters, and in social circles. We are instilled with a connection between success and trust, and as we come of age we have a natural tendency to automatically trust people of stature without first evaluating or understanding their personal merits, or examining them for signs of genuine virtue.
What we are not often taught, however, is that all people are fallible, few people are virtuous, and that people in respectable positions of leadership or power are just as likely to be as careless or to have hidden agendas as anyone else. Medical professionals, especially those who diagnose and recommend treatments to patients, are in positions of immense power in our society and are endowed with tremendous trust by people seeking remedy for concerning illnesses and ailments.’
‘Put this in the “What in the hell are they thinking?” category, but the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) protectors of the friendly skies, the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) has submitted another request for high explosives via the Federal Business Online website today, and has issued a Limited Source Justification for three businesses to provide the material: Hallowell Manufacturing LLC, Omni Explosives Inc, and Tripwire Operations Group.
While this is not new, the explosive they are requesting has not been ordered/solicited in the past 10 years.’
‘The FBI has launched an investigation of the Corrections Corporation of America over the company’s running of an Idaho prison with a reputation so violent that inmates dubbed it “Gladiator School.”
The Nashville, Tenn.-based CCA has operated Idaho’s largest prison for more than a decade, but last year, CCA officials acknowledged it had understaffed the Idaho Correctional Center by thousands of hours in violation of the state contract. CCA also said employees falsified reports to cover up the vacancies. The announcement came after an Associated Press investigation showed CCA sometimes listed guards as working 48 hours straight to meet minimum staffing requirements.
The Idaho State Police was asked to investigate the company last year but didn’t, until amid increasing political pressure, the governor ordered the agency to do so last month. Democratic state lawmakers asked the FBI to take up the case last month.’

‘Are drones not scary enough for you yet? How about this? A drone helicopter that spots you and identifies you as an intruder. It tells you to stop and put your hands behind your head. Instead, you keep coming. The drone then shoots you with barbed Taser darts that pump 80,000 volts into you. If you try to get up, it will continue pumping voltage into you until you submit and the authorities arrive.
This isn’t some dystopian theory. It’s very real already, and I just saw it in action. Yes, it is terrifying.’
‘In August this column ran a piece claiming that the Pacific Ocean was being poisoned by radioactive material escaping from Fukushima, two years after the devastating tsunami and meltdown at the Japanese nuclear facility. Three months later, shocking evidence points towards a calamity situation.
Silence from the corporate media.
There is growing evidence coming from numerous reports aired on social networks and the so-called social media, among which is the article “Radioactive Water From Fukushima Is Systematically Poisoning The Entire Pacific Ocean” (*), which claimed that every day and for 750 days (now over 800) tonnes of toxic materials have been pouring into the Pacific Ocean.
The toxic substances were identified as Tritium, Cesium and Strontium, being carried far and wide by winds, rain and ocean currents, entering the food chain through seaweed and seafood, building up high levels of toxicity in the fish – and humans – at the top end of the consumption chain.’
‘Although very few beers or wines are made using animal ingredients, such ingredients are often used during the filtration process, in which natural solids are removed to give the final product a translucent appearance.
These solids include ingredients that are part of the original recipe (such as grape skins) as well as solids that form during fermentation (such as yeast cells).
Common filtering (or “fining”) additives include egg whites, milk proteins, sea shells, gelatin (made from animal hides) and isinglass (a substance similar to gelatin, made from the swim bladders of fish!).’

‘The U.S. is backing Ukraine’s extreme right-wing Svoboda party and violent neo-Nazis whose armed uprising paved the way for a Western-backed coup. Events in the Ukraine are giving us another glimpse through the looking-glass of U.S. propaganda wars against fascism, drugs and terrorism. The ugly reality behind the mirror is that the U.S. government has a long and unbroken record of working with fascists, dictators, druglords and state sponsors of terrorism in every region of the world in its elusive but relentless quest for unchallenged global power.
Behind a firewall of impunity and protection from the State Department and the CIA, U.S. clients and puppets have engaged in the worst crimes known to man, from murder and torture to coups and genocide. The trail of blood from this carnage and chaos leads directly back to the steps of the U.S. Capitol and the White House. As historian Gabriel Kolko observed in 1988, “The notion of an honest puppet is a contradiction Washington has failed to resolve anywhere in the world since 1945.” What follows is a brief A to Z guide to the history of that failure.’
‘When the city of Detroit filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy in July 2013, America sucked in a collective gasp. This was the largest municipal bankruptcy filing in U.S. history by the amount of debt ($18–20 billion), and Detroit was the largest city ever to officially go bust.
A few months before the bankruptcy, the state of Michigan appointed an emergency manager, Kevyn Orr, to sort things out in Motor City. Orr was given extraordinary powers to rewrite contracts and liquidate some of the city’s most valuable assets. The burning question: Who would be responsible for the enormous debt? Soon enough it became clear that the folks who would be asked to take the hit were not those who created the problems. Just as in so many other parts of the world in the wake of the 2007-’08 financial meltdown, innocent people who did nothing but get up every day and go to work would be asked to pay the bill.’

‘There’s an old cliché about the left that we see plots by the state where they don’t exist. But the latest revelations about the Big Brother spy state via National Security Agency (NSA) leaker Edward Snowden show that an equally old joke has the ring of truth: Just because we’re paranoid doesn’t mean they’re not out to get us.
Recent articles by journalist Glenn Greenwald for NBC News and The Intercept document, using evidence obtained by Snowden, cooperation between the British intelligence agency Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) and the NSA.
A previously unknown division of GCHQ called the Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group (JTRIG) presented classified documents to the NSA and other government intelligence agencies that detailed some of their favorite spy tactics and dirty tricks–including “monitoring of YouTube and Blogger, the targeting of Anonymous with the very same [denial of service] attacks they accuse ‘hacktivists’ of using, the use of ‘honey traps’ (luring people into compromising situations using sex) and destructive viruses,” Greenwald wrote.
The bottom line, according to Greenwald: “[T]hese agencies are attempting to control, infiltrate, manipulate and warp online discourse, and in doing so, are compromising the integrity of the Internet itself.”‘
‘Since the US-sponsored peace negotiations between the Palestinians and Israel recommenced last summer, Israeli forces have: authorised the approval of several thousand illegal settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories; launched the construction of twice as many illegal housing units as in the previous year; forcibly dispersed a peaceful protest camp in the Jordan Valley; violently suppressed the nonviolent demonstrations that happen weekly throughout the occupied West Bank; demolished hundreds of Palestinian homes and structures, with demolitions now at an all time high, leaving entire families homeless and exposed to the cold; arrested hundreds of Palestinian children and thousands of adults to be held without charge or tried in Israeli military courts; and killed dozens of Palestinians in raids in the West Bank and airstrikes in the Gaza Strip, which also injured several thousand.
In addition, Israeli settlers living illegally in the occupied Palestinian territories have carried out countless attacks against Palestinians; for example, uprooting olive trees, burning cars and painting racist graffiti on homes, mosques, churches and schools. According to the Associated Press, UN figures published in January show that the annual rate of Israeli settler attacks against Palestinians has almost quadrupled over the last eight years.
Meanwhile, Palestinians were responsible for the deaths of six Israelis throughout all of last year; and militant groups in Gaza, a territory that the UN has warned may soon become uninhabitable due to the draconian siege imposed by Israel, consistently fired rockets at Israel, none of which caused any significant damage or injuries. In December, militants also planted a bomb on a bus near Tel Aviv, with no injuries reported.’
‘Events in Anbar mean that it will be very difficult for the people of the province to vote in the upcoming general election. Logistics are one problem, the fact that a third of the population has fled ongoing violence there and that many others have lost faith in the political process are others. Still, almost everyone else thinks it is imperative that the elections be held there.
Nearly two months after the armed conflict between local militants and the Iraqi army started in Iraq’s Anbar province, a new political crisis is looming – Iraq’s elections.
It doesn’t seem as though the largest cities in Anbar province – Fallujah and Ramadi – are in any way ready for the elections. In Ramadi there are still running street battles going on in certain neighbourhoods between militants and the Iraqi army, and Fallujah is still under the control of revolutionary militants.’
‘Scotland’s finance minister has warned that British taxpayers would be loaded with all of the national debt if an independent Scotland is not allowed to share the pound.
John Swinney made the warning on Friday, saying that an independent Scotland would not take a share of Britain’s £1.3 trillion national debt if the government in Westminster rejected a sterling currency union when the Scottish vote ‘yes’ in the independence referendum in September.
The warning came after Danny Alexander, the Chief Secretary to the Treasury in London, reiterated the UK’s stance that a separated Scotland could not share the pound, describing the decision as “final.”
The Scottish National Party (SNP) minister refused to outline a Plan B on currency and said a vote for independence would put Scotland “in the driving seat.”‘
‘Two Yemeni soldiers have been killed and three others have been wounded in a militant attack on a military base in the southern province of Abyan.
Brigadier General Mohammed Abdullah, commander of the Yemeni army’s 115th Brigade, said the attack was carried out in the town of Lawder early Saturday.
“Terrorist elements from al-Qaeda attempted to attack the 115 Infantry Brigade in Laudar in the province of Abyan, using hand grenades, explosive devices and explosive belts.”
He added that one of the attackers, a Saudi national, was killed in exchange of fire with security forces.’
‘The South Sudanese army has intercepted a “mislabeled” shipment of weapons from a UN peacekeeping mission.
On Friday, an unnamed South Sudanese military official said the shipment had been from the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS).
“This is claimed to be a UN shipment with weapons, blankets and army uniforms on the way from Rumbek to Bentiu,” the official said.
The weapons were intercepted because UNMISS shipments are transferred by air and not by road.
“Several containers were labeled wrongly and inadvertently contained weapons and ammunitions. This is regrettable,” said UNMISS spokesperson Ariane Quentier.’
‘Two rockets fired from Syria have hit an area near the Lebanese border town of al-Qaa, as the Syria war spills over into the neighboring country.
The rockets hit an uninhabited area between the towns of Hermel and al-Qaa on Saturday.
There has been almost daily rocket fire from neighboring Syria, which is considered as a clear spillover of violence from neighboring Syria.
On Friday, the Lebanese military said three rockets hit several towns in the eastern Bekaa Valley, but caused no injuries.
The al-Qaeda-linked group, the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), claimed responsibility for the rocket attacks.’
