Brexit Leader And Trump Ally Nigel Farage Mulls Political Comeback In Northern Ireland

in News/World by

Nigel Farage, the architect of Brexit and the former leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP), appears to be hinting at a potential political comeback next year. Although he has officially denied rumors that he intends to join the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) to run for office, his main financial backer and close confidant, Arron Banks, subsequently suggested that Farage is indeed considering such a bid after the end of his term as a Member of the European Parliament in 2019. “He will continue until his term expires, but what he didn’t say is what he would do when his…

After Iran, Turkey Tries To Expand Anti-Israel Alliance To Jordan

in News/World by

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has continued to expand his unorthodox alliance of Muslim countries opposed to the Israel and Saudi Arabia at the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) summit on Friday. Having wooed his former rival Iran, he also brought the Palestinian government of Mahmoud Abbas into his fold, after the Saudis enraged the Palestinians with their backing of a controversial U.S. peace plan. Furthermore, Turkey has long had a deep alliance with controversial Arab Gulf state Qatar, and the international Muslim Brotherhood movement which both countries back. However, perhaps surprisingly, the newest member of this group appears to Jordan, a relatively…

John Bolton Is Sabotaging Trump’s Diplomatic Progress In North Korea

in News/World by

President Donald Trump hired Bush-era hawk John Bolton as his national security adviser with the proviso that he wouldn’t start any wars in his new position, but old habits die hard. Bolton’s belligerent approach to foreign affairs is dangerous close to sabotaging the Trump administration’s progress with North Korea, who have halted peace talks with South Korea as a result. Bolton is directly undermining the President and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and their diplomatic gains with North Korea. Bolton has publicly suggested the “Libya model” for North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un to follow. This was a plan where Libyan…

The IMF Urges a Reverse Of Brexit, Warns Italy To Stay In European Union

in News/World by

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is growing very scared at the revolt against globalism that is sweeping throughout Europe. The globalist body is attempting to undermine the Brexit, despite the fact that it was approved by a majority of British voters, and trying to warn Italy to stay in the European Union (EU) to prop up the status quo. “A large and complex financial system exposes the United Kingdom and the global economy to risks associated with the transition to a new state of play. There are also policy uncertainties related to newly elected governments in major European countries,” the…

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is incredibly angry following the killing of 60 Palestinians at the Israeli border earlier this week. He is calling for Islamic people to unite outside of the United Nations to thwart the state of Israel. “The U.N. is finished, ended, collapsed. At this moment I cannot reach the U.N. secretary general despite having a good friendship [with him],” Erdoğan said during a dinner in the Turkish capital of Ankara. “We will never allow Jerusalem to be usurped by Israel.

They announced this week that they would be permanently removing operations from Budapest, the Hungarian capital. “The government of Hungary has denigrated and misrepresented our work and repressed civil society for the sake of political gain, using tactics unprecedented in the history of the European Union,” said Patrick Gaspard, president of the Open Society Foundations.

Saudi-backed Nationalist-Communist Alliance Wins Shock Victory In Iraqi Election

in News/World by

An electoral alliance comprised of Shia militants and communists, and backed by Saudi Arabia, appears to have prevailed in Saturday’s Iraqi parliamentary elections, based on early results. Though anti-American Shia fundamentalists, secular communists, and U.S.-allied Sunni Arab monarchies may seem like strange bedfellows, this pact serves as a good illustration of the increasing complexity of the situation in the Middle East as regional allegiances continue to shift. Firebrand cleric Moqtada al-Sadr’s Sadrist Movement started as the political wing of the Mahdi Army, an Iran-aligned Shia fundamentalist death squad which led the fight against U.S. forces in 2004 and was accused…

Responding To Gaza Crackdown, Turkey Recalls Ambassadors From Israel And US

in News/World by

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is rescinding Turkish ambassadors from Tel Aviv and Washington D.C. This is believed to be retaliation for the crackdown on protesters in Gaza yesterday where 50 Palestinians were gunned down at the Israel-Gaza border. “Israel is wreaking state terror. Israel is a terror state,” Erdogan said to Turkish students in London. “What Israel has done is a genocide. I condemn this humanitarian drama, the genocide, from whichever side it comes, Israel or America.” “Turkey will react to this harshly,” Erdogan added. This follows surprising news where the Turks endorsed Iran following the termination of a controversial…

Turkey Sides With Iran In Syrian Proxy War, Putting US Forces In Difficult Situation

in News/World by

Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan has been tough to predict during his many years in power. He has encouraged the spread of Islam throughout the West and even been accused of doing business with ISIS, and now he is apparently currying favor with Iran as Turkey has announced their support of the Iranian regime in the Syrian proxy war that is currently being waged. This puts crucial US allies on both sides of the conflict. Following the announcement that Trump was terminating the Iran deal, Turkish Economy Minister Nihat Zeybekci said: “We will continue to have trade with Iran while…

After He Told Trump He Wouldn’t Start a War, John Bolton Is Again Pushing For War In Iran

in News/World by

When President Donald Trump hired John Bolton as his national security advisor, it came with a caveat: Bolton promised the President that he wouldn’t start any wars. Bolton is already reneging on that pledge, as he is up to his old warmongering tricks. During an interview with CBS News, Bolton talked about the push for war in Iran. He is using the mess in Syria – where Iran is engaged with Israel in a proxy war – as a way to sell the public on a war in Iran. “I think Iran is bringing us close to war with its…

As Trump Strengthens US National Security Interests, Obama’s Legacy Is All But Forgotten

in News/Politics/World by

When Barack Hussein Obama left office, radical Islamic groups were emboldened after years of US appeasement in the Middle East. In addition to ISIS claiming hold of substantial parts of Syria, their rival Islamic terror group, Hezbollah, became stronger than ever after benefiting greatly from Obama’s Iran deal. But those days are now over. ISIS is 98 percent decimated thanks to the work of Trump, and now Trump is setting his sights on Iran and their allied terror groups. He announced this week that the Iran deal – an achievement that was meant to secure Obama’s presidential legacy – is…

Orban effectively has a supermajority, as his nationalist Fidesz party took 49 percent of the votes. This gives him a tremendous amount of power to wield, and he plans to use it to thwart globalism and defend “Christian culture.” Orban will begin with a “Stop Soros” bill that takes aim at liberal international financier George Soros and his legion of non-governmental organizations that are operate in Hungary and throughout the world. This already has the leftists running for cover. “Effectively a gag order would…

Solving Colombia’s Drug Violence Dilemma: Legalize Drugs And Guns

in Politics/World by

With the 2018 Colombian presidential elections rapidly approaching, presidential front-runners Iván Duque and Gustavo Petro face numerous challenges ahead. One of them involves dealing with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), the perpetrators of a more than 50-year-long armed conflict in Colombia that has left 220,000 dead and has displaced over 5.7 million people. Part of outgoing President Manuel Santos’ legacy was brokering a peace deal with the FARC that would be decided by the Colombian people through a popular referendum. However, things did not go Santos’ way at first when Colombians rejected the peace accords by the thinnest of margins. Following the original peace agreement’s defeat, Santos’ government and the FARC came together…

After this past weekend’s chemical attack in Syria, President Bashar al-Assad is widely being blamed for the deadly poisoning. He denies any involvement in the gassing, but French President Emmanuel Macron claims that he has “proof” that Assad committed the attacks – although he has yet to produce any evidence of this to the general public. “We have the proof that chemical weapons — at least chlorine gas — were used by Assad’s regime,” Macron said on France’s TF1 network.

The world was rocked off its axis this weekend with news of another Syrian chemical strike that supposedly killed dozens. Israel has already launched missile strikes and U.S. forces have vowed retaliation as well, but the United Nations cannot even prove that the attack even happened. “We’re not in a position at this point to independently verify the allegations [about the alleged chemical attack in Douma], but, obviously, any allegation of continued use of chemical weapons is extremely, extremely troubling,” Stephane Dujarric, who serves as spokeswoman for UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, said on Monday evening.

The Deep State Has Been Plotting Regime Change In Syria Since The 1980s

in News/World by

President Donald Trump has reversed course drastically in Syria from that of his predecessor. By refusing to arm terrorist rebel groups in the region, ISIS has been decimated in Syria as a result and the Bashir al-Assad regime has been strengthened. Trump has been largely criticized for these moves by the mainstream media and the intelligence community, who are far more focused on Russian collusion than the defeat of ISIS. A document that was unearthed from the 1980s by the Activist Post sheds some light on why they have reacted this way. It turns out that the CIA has been…
