The mainstream media have been very quiet about the fact that President Trump spent some time recently on the phone to King Salman of Saudi Arabia, and the upshot of the conversation was that the Saudis would support the setting up of safe zones in Syria and Yemen, for the refugees to be housed on their own land and in a secure way. By ‘support’, and knowing a little of this president’s methods, I would hazard a guess that it means the Saudis are paying for it, and that Trump will have it up and ready-to-go soon, and under budget.

Only nine days away from his swearing-in as president, Donald Trump held his first press conference since the election and announced that the pharmaceutical industry was “getting away with murder” and that during his presidency he would do something about high drug prices with more competitive bidding for federal contracts. His remarks sent drug stocks into a sudden nosedive. Continue reading

With the exception of a few donor interests, former President Barack Obama never entered into international agreements that were going to be of any real benefit to the United States. Whether it be the Iran nuclear deal, the Paris Climate Change Accords or globalist trade deals, the lie was always that such deals would benefit “ordinary Americans” and “American business interests” while doing exactly the opposite.
Tens of millions of Americans knew that already, and one of them was just inaugurated as our 45th president. Continue reading

Shingles, also known as “zoster” or “herpes zoster,” will affect roughly 1 out of every 3 American adults during their lifetime. Estimates suggest that there are upwards of one million cases of shingles each year in the United States. The disease is caused by dormant varicella zoster virus — the same virus that causes chicken pox. It is fairly well known that a history of having had chicken pox puts you at risk of developing shingles in your elder years.
But did you know that the shingles vaccine could raise the risk of someone else getting chicken pox?

In a welcome announcement during a press conference yesterday, President-elect Donald Trump announced a plan to shatter the monopolistic pricing of Big Pharma that has been draining literally trillions of dollars from the government for the past two decades.
“Pharma has a lot of lobbyists and a lot of power,” said Trump. “There’s very little bidding on drugs. We’re the largest drug buyer in the world, and we’re going to start bidding. We’re going to start saving billions of dollars on drugs.” Continue reading

The good news is that the fightback against globalism has managed to snarl up the passages of both the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) in Europe, and the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) in the United States. And depending upon who wins the presidential election in November, both could be stalled permanently. Continue reading

President of Turkey Erdogan’s chief adviser, Ilnur Cevik, confesses to being flabbergasted at the lies that David Cameron has told the Turks about them joining the European Union. He should try living in Britain for a while – you just get used to it. So much so, that it’s difficult to be sure about to whom Cameron is lying when he insists that Turkey will not join the EU until at least the year 3000. Is he lying to us, or is he lying to the Turks, to whom he’d promised to pave the way from Ankara to Brussels?
Ilnur Cevik told Kirsty Walk on last night’s Newsnight… Continue reading

The terrible murder of the much-loved Labour MP, Jo Cox, on Thursday, has been distastefully and disgracefully hijacked by those desperately scrabbling for a link between her killer, Thomas Mair, and the Leave campaign in the EU referendum. Whether or not this shooting turns out to be a false flag, we don’t yet know. But it can certainly be filed under the heading of “never let a good opportunity go to waste” for the Remain campaign, which has enormous governmental and media resources at its disposals, but which, nevertheless, has been floundering badly in the polls. Continue reading

In the last ITV debate, Nicola Sturgeon boldly claimed that European Union Member States are independent countries. Amber Rudd backed her up and presented the EU as a “pooling of sovereignty” while Angela Eagle said that we only give up a “little bit” of sovereignty for the benefits of membership. This is a fundamental dishonesty at the heart of the Remain campaign.

“What does Leave look like, in economic terms,” the Remaniacs keep asking, as if they had at any stage produced a real, truthful economic forecast.
Despite being reprimanded by his own Treasury for telling us that households would be worse off by around £4,000 if Great Britain leaves the EU, George Osborne is still trotting out that lie, even though he knows that he has been caught out cunningly conflating gross GDP with household GDP, which are two very different animals. And that wasn’t the worst of it – because it also turned out that the £4,000 figure came from a very different Treasury-based scenario to the one he was broadcasting. The real story was that we would be a lot better off in the future, Remain or Leave, but if we left, we’d be better off by not quite so much, to the tune of £4,000. Hardly economic Armageddon, is it?

One of the reasons that’s being continually trotted out by those who wish us to stay in the EU and open our borders to increased migration is because “white people just aren’t having children anymore and so there won’t be anyone to pay the pensions of the elderly if we don’t let in millions of migrants.”
This has come to be known as “the demographic timebomb”. But if you look at the actual birth rates figures, the demographic timebomb is about as real as the Millennium Bug, the hole in the ozone layer and the weapons of the mass destruction. Continue reading
The Green party is massively in favour of staying in the EU, despite seeing its many flaws as an organisation. The majority view of Greens is that its benefits far outweigh the problems. Personally, I disagree and when I stood for internal selection for the European parliament some years ago, I did so while making my doubts very clear.
Why do I disagree with so many of my colleagues, on this matter? Well, let me start by noting that I agree with the Green party’s assessment that the EU is in need of wholesale reform; I just don’t believe that it is reformable. Even if it is reformable, many of the reforms that others have made or are pushing for make it worse, as has been argued. So while I agree with the Green party’s quite negative analysis of the EU as it is, I just can’t support the idea that we must stay in to reform it.
