Helen Reece, a reader in law at the London School of Economics, called on Theresa May, the Home Secretary, to relax rules which automatically ban sex offenders from caring for children, saying that this could breach their human rights.
In an article in the respected Child and Family Law Quarterly, Miss Reece suggested that reoffending rates were not high among sex criminals, adding: “despite growing public concern over paedophilia, the numbers of child sex murders are very low.”
A review is currently ongoing into the Vetting and Barring Scheme, introduced following the 2002 Soham murders, amid concerns by ministers that it is too heavy handed.
As well as banning certain offenders, the law currently requires adults coming into regular contact with children other than their own to be screened.
Mrs May ordered the review amid concerns about the vetting of ordinary volunteers such as parents who drive children to football practice and church flower arrangers.
In her article, Miss Reece suggested that the review should also introduce an assumption that sex offenders including child abusers posed no threat once they had served their sentence.
She said: “There is no reason why all sex offenders should not be considered as potentially suitable to adopt or foster children, or work with them.
“The Vetting and Barring Scheme and other legislative measures single out sex offenders for unfair special treatment and they destroy the principle that a prisoner pays his or her debt by serving their sentence before re-entering society on equal terms.”
People are once again flocking to join the Labour party, in efforts to ensure any attempts to oust him by the Parliamentary Labour Party are foiled.
The 2015 Labour leadership election that Jeremy Corbyn won with a solid 59.5% mandate was characterised by one thing: the huge groundswell of support for dark horse Corbyn. By 10 January 2016, party membership was up to 388,407, almost double the 201,293 that were members on 6 May 2015. Now Corbyn faces a leadership challenge, it seems people are joining to support him once again – and if a recent poll is to be believed, it looks like his support is increasing, rather than dwindling.
The argument of the Parliamentary Labour Party is and always has been that Corbyn’s Labour is unelectable. According to a YouGov survey for The Times, this does not ring true with the party membership now as it did not in September last year – 64% said they would vote for Corbyn in a leadership ballot.
What’s more, these findings actually demonstrate an increase in support amongst full party members for Corbyn compared to when he was first elected. And if social media is anything to go by, this trend may only continue.
Since the coup came to light on Saturday, there has been a notable increase in people joining the Labour Party. Journalist Robert Peston has suggested that as many as 13,000 people have joined since last week, with 60% citing ‘supporting Corbyn’ as their reason.
On Twitter, people are openly discussing their new membership.
Labour MPs voted by a margin of 172 to 40 to pass the motion, making a leadership challenge highly likely. It is unclear, however, whether Mr Corbyn will automatically receive a place on the ballot.
“All they’ve done is stab him in the back and now they are stabbing him in the front,” Mr Livingstone told The Independent as he accused the “ghastly Blairities” in the parliamentary Labour party of betraying their leader.
Mr Livingstone, who is currently suspended from the party pending an internal investigation into anti-semitism claims, added that Mr Corbyn “should bring back automatic reselection”.
“Up until Blair got in local parties could choose their candidate before each general election, so that kept MPs focused on keeping their party membership behind them. Party members must have the right to get rid of their MP,” continued Mr Livingstone.
In the early nineties John Taylor Gatto resigned from 26 years of award-winning teaching in Manhattan’s public schools.
There he had used his classes as a laboratory where he could learn a broader range of what human possibility is; and what releases and what inhibits human power. He came to believe that genius is an exceedingly common human quality; and that he had been hired not to enlarge children’s power, but to diminish it. He saw that whatever he thought he was doing as a teacher, most of what he was actually doing was teaching an “invisible curriculum that reinforced the myths of the school institution and those of an economy based on caste.” He began to devise “guerrilla exercises” to allow his students to be their own teachers and to make themselves the major text of their own education.
The first chapter is the transcript of a speech Gatto gave on the occasion of his being named “New York Teacher of the Year” for 1991. I felt myself thrill to the courage, the heart, and the soul of this man as revealed through his words; and wonder at the reception of the audience who I imagine would be present at such an event. The intent of this speech was to convey his belief that while teaching means different things in different places, seven lessons are universally taught from Harlem to Hollywood Hills. Read on and you may share my wonder as, maintaining his voice, I precis his points.
1. Confusion. Everything I teach is out of context. I teach the un-relating and disconnections of everything. I teach too much: from the orbiting of planets to adjectives. Curricula are full of internal contradictions and lack coherence. Kids leave school without one genuine enthusiasm or indepth appreciation of anything. Human beings seek meaning, not disconnected facts.
“In a world where home is only a ghost because both parents work, or because of too many moves or job changes or too much ambition… I teach you how to accept confusion as your destiny.”
2. Class position. I teach students they must stay in the class where they belong. If I do my job well, the kids can’t even imagine themselves somewhere else, because I have shown them how to envy and fear the better classes, and to have contempt for the dumb classes. The lesson is everyone has a proper place in the pyramid and you must stay where you are put.
In an amazing step for the advancement of public health, the Drug Enforcement Agency approved a study of cannabis as a treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). PTSD, once called shell shock or battle fatigue syndrome, is a serious condition that can develop after a person has experienced or witnessed a traumatic or terrifying event in which serious physical harm occurred or was threatened; most commonly suffered by military veterans. This a serious affliction that, according to Associated Press, affects 1 in every 8 soldiers returning from active duty.
Many have been calling for cannabis to be legalized specifically for veterans suffering from PTSD after seeing the amazing effects the plant has on one’s ability to begin a healthy recovery from psychological trauma. A study published in the journal, Psychoneuroendocrinology, showed that people suffering from PTSD are largely characterized by having significant and long-term reduction in the body’s endocannabinoid system, which is a system absolutely crucial for emotional regulation (to generalize its effects). Understanding cannabis’ special connection to the human body’s natural endocannabinoid system reveals just how perfect cannabis is to treat PTSD on a cellular level.
The non-profit organization Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, or MAPS, announced Thursday it will receive a grant of over $2.1 million from the State of Colorado to study the whole cannabis plant. This will mark the first time a study of this type will have been approved by a federal agency.
“We have been working towards approval since we opened the Investigational New Drug Application (IND) with the FDA in 2010,” explained Amy Emerson, Executive Director and Director of Clinical Research for the MAPS Public Benefit Corporation. “We are thrilled to see this study overcome the hurdles of approval so we can begin gathering the data. The study is a critical step in moving our botanical drug development program forward at the federal level to gather information on the dosing, risks, and benefits of smoked marijuana for PTSD symptoms.”
As many as 71 Palestinian prisoners have died in Israeli jails as a result of torture since 1967, Abdel Nasser Farwana, head of the documentation and studies unit at the detainees and ex-detainees committee, said.
In a statement released on Sunday to mark the International Day Against Torture, Farwana said dozens others died shortly after being released as an effect of the torture they had endured, adding that many more suffer from long-term physical and psychological disabilities.
“Israel practices a unique and atypical form of physical and psychological torture and it is the only country in the world that legalises torture in its jails and detention camps and protects its perpetrators,” he explained.
“Israel uses torture on institutional level against Palestinian and Arab detainees. According to our data, 100 per cent of the Palestinian prisoners were subjected to one form or another of torture,” he added.
“This situation of captivity is degrading for the animals, it’s not the way to take care of them,” asserted Buenos Aires Mayor Horacio Rodríguez Larreta during a ceremony announcing the closure of the city’s 140-year-old zoo.
Rodríguez explained nature reserves throughout Argentina would make far more suitable habitats for the zoo’s nearly 2,500 animals, the Guardianreported, and the 44-acre zoo, itself, will also undergo a transformation to an ecopark — a “place where children can learn to take care of and relate with the different species.”
“What we have to value is the animals,” Rodríguez continued. “The way they live here is definitely not the way to do that.”
Animals unable to be transferred to larger, natural preserves will remain at the zoo, but will undoubtedly benefit from improvements made during the ecopark metamorphosis. According to the Guardian, city officials also said the ecopark would serve as a haven to rehabilitate animals recovered from illegal trafficking.
Though once a driver of tourism for Buenos Aires, the zoo came under intense criticism for its polar bear exhibit — the region’s blistering summer temperatures were partly responsible for the death of the attraction’s last polar bear, Winner, three years ago.
Three UK councils have been cleared of anti-semitism by the High Court after they imposed boycotts on Israeli goods, a ruling pro-boycott campaigners have described as an “important victory”.
The charity Jewish Human Rights Watch (JHRW) brought judicial charges against Leicester City Council, Swansea City Council and Gwynedd Council for discrimination, but the claims were dismissed.
All three local authorities had passed motions to boycott any produce coming into the cities from “illegal Israeli settlements in the West Bank, until such time as Israel complies with international law and withdraws from Palestinian occupied territories”.
The British vote to leave the European Union could trigger a tidal wave of referendums, with up to 34 plebiscites on matters ranging from membership itself to keeping the euro and stopping the influx of refugees.
A study by the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR), suggests far-right parties were looking to surf the wave of europhobia created by the Brexit vote.
The ECFR report said the fear of Turkey joining the EU and the rise of Islamophobia were among the reasons why support for anti-immigrant and anti-EU parties was on the rise across the continent.
France’s Front National leader Marine Le Pen, left, shares a joke today with Gerolf Annemans, who leads the Flemish far-right Vlaams Belang party in Belgium
The ECFR’s Mark Leonard, quoted in the Daily Express said: ‘Many of these insurgent parties have views on foreign policy that are closer to President Putin than President Obama.
In December, a month after the Paris attacks, France’s Front National recorded 27 percent of the vote in regional elections and today the FN’s leader, Marine Le Pen called Brexit ‘an extraordinary victory for democracy – a slap for a European system based more and more on fear, blackmail and lies.’
She has already called for ‘Frexit’: ‘As I have been asking for years, we must now have the same referendum in France and (other) EU countries.’
Far-Right Dutch firebrand Geert Wilders has called for a ‘Nexit’ vote in the Netherlands.
He has promised to make a referendum vote a priority in next spring’s elections.
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban today blamed the EU’s migration policies for the British vote to leave.
The graphite was hardly dry on the Brexit ballots when TVP Info, a Polish broadcaster, leaked a 9-page document drawn up by the German and French foreign ministers calling for an EU superstate complete with an EU army, integrated border controls and common taxation. The German foreign minister discussed the plans — which are being described as “an ultimatum” — with his counterparts in the Visegrad Group of countries (Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia) this week.
The document, bearing the Orwellian title of “A strong Europe in a world of uncertainties,” lays out the exact tyrannical plans that the EU’s critics have been warning about for years. After identifying key areas of uncertainty and concern affecting Europe — from spreading [false flag] terrorism to [manipulated] cultural tensions to [engineered] economic hardships — the document proposes three new areas for expanded EU cooperation:
Click to read the full document
A European Security Compact, including an expansion of internal “security” through a strengthened Europol, and expansion of external “security” in areas like North Africa and the Middle East through coordination with the African Union, G5 and other globalist counterparts.
A Common European asylum and migration policy, including the expansion of FRONTEX with permanent, dedicated EU-supplied staff, and the creation of a European Asylum Agency tasked with standardizing the registration of asylum seekers and hosting joint EU-controlled databases.
A Completed Economic and Monetary Union, including “convergence between member states” in strategic sectors of the economy, the development of a European Monetary Fund presided over by EU parliament, and continued moves toward “common taxation.”
Even more stunningly, the paper actually proposes a standing EU-directed military chain of command, up to and including standing European armed forces:
“The EU will need to take action more often in order to manage crises that directly affect its own security. We therefore need stronger and more flexible crisis prevention and crisis management capabilities. The EU should be able to plan and conduct civil and military operations more effectively, with the support of a permanent civil-military chain of command. The EU should be able to rely on employable high-readiness forces and provide common financing for its operations. Within the framework of the EU, member states willing to establish permanent structured cooperation in the field of defence or to push ahead to launch operations should be able to do so in a flexible manner. If needed, EU member states should consider establishing standing maritime forces or acquiring EU-owned capabilities in other key areas.”
Of course absolutely none of this will come as news to my long time readers. I laid out in these very pages how last December’s proposal for a European Border and Coast Guard was the first step to the EU superstate. And I also told you how last November’s Paris false flag paved the way for EU President Juncker to call for an EU standing army. And I’ve been warning over and over for years now that the crisis in the Eurozone was going to be used as a way for the banksters to fail forward by claiming that the ECB needs even more powers to wreck Europe’s economy. So none of these proposals are that shocking individually.
Next year the AfD will enter the German parliament and Dexit will be top on our agenda
Alternative for Germany
AfD chairman Bjorn Hocke said: “I know the German people want to be free of EU slavery.”George Pazderski of Berlin AfD Berlin AfD added: “Germans must decided on staying in the EU.
“The AfD is the only part which speaks out clearly in favour of them deciding.”
Party leader Frauke Petry, who caused controversy earlier this year when she called on German police to open fire on illegal immigrations, reacted with delight at Britain’s decision to sever ties with Brussels.
She said: “This is the chance for a new Europe, one which maintains partnerships and respected national sovereignties.
“The Great Britain decision to leave the EU is a signal to the Brussels Politburo and its bureaucratic attachments. If the EU does not finally leave its wrong path, and the quasi-socialist experiment of deeper political integration, more European Nations will reclaim their sovereignty the way British are
What is the Federal Reserve? “Century of Enslavement: The History of the Federal Reserve” is the perfect 80 minute documentary explaining the history of central banking in the United States, the origins and operations of the Federal Reserve, and why it must be abolished.

On 24th June 2016, precisely 7 years, 7 months, 7weeks, & 7 days after the Global Financial Collapse of 29th September 2008, it was announced that the population of the United Kingdom had voted by 52/48% to LEAVE the EU … but is this all part of the plan to bring about the FINAL DESTRUCTION of ALL European Nation States? Was this the event that Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the IMF, was alluding to in her infamous ‘Magic Sevens’ speech at the National Press Club in Washington DC on 15th January 2014?
Following the recent water crisis in Flint, it’s no wonder that the U.S. public has begun to question exactly how safe our drinking water actually is. What was once taken for granted — the idea of safe, pure, and drinkable water for everyone — is now in serious question.
In addition to the continuing problems with lead contamination, it has come to light in recent years that public water supplies are now contaminated with trace levels of pharmaceutical drugs, including oral contraceptives and mood stabilizers.
These drugs end up in our water somewhat inadvertently; however, there’s one pharmaceutical that is intentionally added to our tap water: Fluoride.
Fluoride Is a Neurotoxic, Endocrine-Disrupting Drug
Sodium fluoride, long known as an effective roach poison, is added to tablets and drops (i.e., “fluoride supplements“) for the purpose of preventing tooth decay. But because of fluoride’s toxicity, you cannot purchase fluoride “supplements” over-the-counter; they can only be dispensed by prescription under the supervision of a doctor. In short, sodium fluoride is not a nutritional “supplement;” it is a prescription drug, and a dangerous one.
With admiration, many have been observing Iceland’s handling of the banking crisis that jolted the entire world in recent years. Now experiencing a unique economic recovery, the Icelandic public became aware in 2008 that the nation’s private banks had borrowed some $120 billion dollars, ten times the size of Iceland’s economy, creating an economic bubble which forced housing prices to double, and saddled the nation’s people with debt.
While other Western nations initiated bank bailouts in 2008, a popular uprising in Iceland led to a peaceful revolution against corrupt government and banks, and has since become the example for the global movement for liberation from central banking and unaccountable government.
“In the duration of five months, the main bank of Iceland was nationalized, government officials were forced to resign, the old government was liquidated, and a new government was put in its place.” [Source]
“After Iceland suffered a heavy hit in the 2008-2009 financial crisis, which famously resulted in convictions and jail terms for a number of top banking executives, the IMF now says the country has managed to achieve economic recovery—“without compromising its welfare model,” which includes universal healthcare and education. In fact, Iceland is on track to become the first European country that suffered in the financial meltdown to “surpass its pre-crisis peak of economic output”—essentially proving to the U.S. that bailing out “too big to fail” banks wasn’t the way to go.” – Claire Bernish
Following the resignation of Icleand’s former prime minister, Sigmundur Davíð Gunnlaugsson, who quit after being implicated in fraud by the release of the Panama Papers in April of 2016, the public has again grown impatient with the political class. While another US presidential election enters the severe mud-slinging phase, this time between a career politician with an alleged lengthy criminal past, and an arrogant celebrity businessman, Iceland has just demonstrated that a true political outsider and common person can be elected to the office of president.
The age-related peak incidence for a diagnosis of cancer of the cervix is 44 years of age. In the 40 – 44 year age group, the MDH says that there are 14 newly diagnosed cervical cancers per 100,000 per year, which means that 99,986 out of every 100,000 44 year-old women will not be diagnosed with cervical cancer in any given year. (Incidence is the term for the number of new cases of a disease diagnosed during a specified period of time.)
By the age of 50, the CDC reports, more than 80% of American women will have been infected with human papillomavirus (HPV) during their lifetimes. And yet, amazingly, over 99,000 out of every 100,000 women will never be diagnosed with cervical cancer. (It is useful to point out that deaths from cervical cancer are an even more miniscule 1.5 cases per 100,000 female population per year.) Those statistics say that the vast majority of girls who don’t go along with the crowd and refuse the vaccine recommendations will never get cervical cancer.

It’s been said that the most powerful weapons that a cancer patient possesses in their fight are information and an open mind. Unfortunately, we along with nearly all new patients diagnosed with cancer didn’t have a chance to use these weapons. I think back to sitting in the oncologist’s office when my wife was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer in October of 2012, and in a neurologist’s office for my son’s glioma (brain tumor) diagnosis in July of 2013, and having the fear of God put into us. There is no time for gathering information and keeping an open mind to alternative treatments when dealing with the medical establishement. Their answer is “immediately start our prescribed treatment plan, or certain death awaits”. After the initial shock of hearing this, we immediately began treatment as nearly everyone who has the shock of hearing “you have cancer” does.
That treatment plan will consist of either chemotherapy, surgery, or radiation, but most likely a combination of more than one of these options. Throughout my wife’s brutal battle including all three of these and two prolonged hospital stays, followed by watching my son nearly lose his life to chemotherapy and then losing half of his eyesight from surgery, the fear of losing them led to hundreds of hours researching these three chosen modalities of the cancer industry in great detail. Here’s what I’ve gathered after doing so.
First, I believe that the cancer industry’s understanding of the disease and how to attack it is misguided. The proliferation of cancer in the body is not something to “be attacked”, but a warning sign put out by the body that something is wrong and needs to be addressed. It’s typically a build up of toxins after a severe drop in our immune systems. This can be brought on by a variety of issues including continually eating the wrong foods, using products with known carcinogens in them, lack of proper hydration, and a number of other environmental factors, but the most important and overlooked factor is stress in ones life. In the majority of cancer patients, something stressful was happening in their lives in the months and years leading up to their diagnosis that needs to be addressed and changed if it is to be beaten and stay in remission.
The Brexit contagion is spreading as USD liquidity and counterparty risk in the interconnected global financial system has reached US banks with Goldman at 3 year lows and BofA and Citi plunging over 12%. This happens just two days after the Fed released its latest stress test results finding that none of the 33 banks tested would need additional capital in case of a “severe” financial crisis. That conclusion may be tested soon.
A British officer told Paul Craig Roberts that 90% of the soldiers in his command voted for Leave because they were tired of fighting wars for America. Of course Americans know that our wars are for Israel and the Banks. We have as much anger as the British and others around the world do against our government. That is because Americans are beginning to realize we are an occupied nation.
The goal of this essay is to outline escape routes from the European Union, Banker Occupation and never ending wars.
Brexit was a wake up call to the elite. There was so much opposition to the European Union that the ruling parties could not rig the vote as they did in the Scottish Independence referendum. In fact video cameras and eyewitnesses documented enough vote theft in Scotland that the Leave supporters were highly motivated to send thousands of observers into the polls to guarantee a relatively more honest count. But I do think that Leave scored closer to 60% of the pre-theft vote than the reported 52%.
Before dealing with Scotland, I would like to point out the obvious fact that the EU is collapsing and could be gone in months.
The Press is full of reports and even some polls indicating that Swedes, Danes, the Dutch, the Finns and Hungarians are close to demanding a referendum to leave the EU. France and Italy also have strong anti-EU parties.
The wild swing in the financial markets post-Brexit have opened up Deutsche Bank to a possible collapse because they have $70 trillion in exposure to derivatives. There are also more severe financial problem in Italy and France. Italian law requires the banks in their nation to accept government bonds even if they are worthless. The Italian banks are insolvent. Dr Jim Willie sees the most likely next big failure to be an Italian bank collapsing which will take down a major French bank and Deutsche Bank as well.
In a few months nobody in their right mind would stay in the EU and assume a trillion dollars in Unpayable Italian Debts and then create tens of trillions of euros to solve the problems of the French and German banks. The coming economic malaise originating in Europe will spread to America where the voters will not go for a 20 trillion dollar loan to bail out Europe.
