Labour MP Rushanara Ali has called for marches by extremist groups be banned – but only singled out right wing demonstrators in her call for legislation.
The Labour Member of Parliament for Bethnal Green and Bow made the comments Monday evening during an appearance on Sky News. Ms. Ali referred specifically to the English Defence League and the far right group Britain First saying that demonstrations from both groups should be banned in London.
Ali said that the government needed to “redouble their efforts” when it came to tackling extremism.
“We have seen over the years many marches here in the East End and around the country by organisations like the English Defence League and more recently by British [Britain] First,” she said.
Without naming names Ali said that certain individuals were stoking up hatred. Earlier Monday evening, UK political blogger Guido Fawkes singled out EDL founder Tommy Robinson, comparing him to Islamic hate preacher Anjem Choudary who is currently in prison for links to Islamic radicals.
Watch as a liberal reporter attempts to attack the State Department's Heather Nauert for taking 6 hours in order to update the press in the situation involving Otto Warmbier's Health.
Apparently this reporter was silent during the year plus the Obama administration was completely silent on the issue of Warmbier's Health.
Looks like yet another attempt at the lying liberal media to paint the Trump administration as slow to update the people, the same liberal media that ignored the situation for an entire year.
English theoretical physicist and cosmologist, Professor Stephen Hawking had a clear message for audiences at the Starmus Festival in Trondheim, Tuesday, saying " I am convinced that humans need to leave earth". Hawking detailed the challenges we face if we remain earth bound: "resources are being drained at an alarming rate, we have given our planet the disastrous gift of climate change, rising temperatures, reduction of the polar ice caps, deforestation" positing that to find a home elsewhere in the galaxy may be "the only thing that saves us from ourselves". Hawking said he was "not denying the importance of fighting climate change and global warming, unlike Donald Trump" but he had hopes the race for a home in space would "unite competitive nations in a single goal to face a common challenge for us all."
If you like your healthcare provider you can keep your healthcare provider… provided you pay a whopping 60% rate hike starting next year.
The Houston Chronicle is reporting that Blue Cross Blue Shield has requested a 60% rate increase in 2017 in Texas following complaints from the company that it is “losing money in the federal health exchanges because some customers have proven more costly to cover than anticipated.”
In other words, the cost of insuring people under the so-called “Affordable” Care Act is going to force prices to skyrocket to potentially unaffordable levels for everyone.
According to filings listed on healthcare.gov, Blue Cross and Blue Shield seeks increases between 57.33 percent and 59.35 percent for two of its Blue Advantage Plus plans. A Blue Advantage Health Maintenance Organization Plan is asking for a 58.6 percent hike…
In a country where the cost of living is going up on virtually all fronts but wages and jobs are not increasing, exactly who is going to be able to afford this insane rate hike? And that’s just to pay for the insurance in case you get sick…
According to the report, it is unclear what will happen if the rate hike request is not granted. When the same company requested a 51% increase in rates in New Mexico last year and the request was denied, the company simply withdrew all healthcare plans from the entire state.
It’s a domino effect. Obamacare is imploding the nation’s health care system.
Insurers across the nation, including Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas, have complained vigorously that they are losing money in the federal exchanges as some customers have proven more costly to cover than anticipated.
Blue Cross Blue Shield isn’t the only company that has been reporting large profit losses due to Obamacare. UnitedHealthcare has reported losses of $650 million. Humana reported a 46% loss in the first quarter of 2016 alone.

Police say an airport officer was stabbed in the neck Wednesday morning at Bishop International Airport in Flint.
The officer was taken to the hospital. Michigan State Police said the officer is in critical condition.
Police identified the injured officer as Lt. Jeff Neville. Bishop International Airport was evacuated and is closed.
Police said a suspect has been taken into custody. The airport released the following statement:
"All passengers are safe and are being evacuated at this time. Please check with your airline for potential cancellations or delays."
The FBI is leading the investigation. The Flint City Hall began operating under heightened security in an abundance of caution after the incident.
"Right now we are still awaiting more information about the situation at Bishop Airport this morning," Flint Mayor Karen Weaver said. "My thoughts and prayers are with all of our law enforcement officers who work to service and protect us each and every day. I want the public to know that several agencies are involved and working to ensure the situation is under control. However, at this time we are taking extra precautions just to be safe."

Belgian troops shot dead a suspected suicide bomber in Brussels Central Station on Tuesday night after he set off a small explosion. Shots could be heard inside the city's busy station as troops moved in to "neutralise" the suspect who, according to reports, was wearing an explosives belt. The station and the adjacent historic city centre were packed with tourists and the area was evacuated as police set up a security cordon at about 9pm local time. “There was an explosion around a person. That person was neutralised by the soldiers that were on the scene,” a police spokesman said. “The police are in numbers at the station and everything is under control.” The Terror Events monitoring site said multiple witnesses and sources claimed that the perpetrator shouted “Allahu Akhbar” (“God is Great”). Eric Van Der Sypt, a federal prosecutor, later said the small blast was being treated as a terrorist attack. He said the man's identity remained unknown on Tuesday night. The Belgian capital has been on high alert for more than 18 months since Brussels-based Islamic State militants carried out attacks in Paris that killed 130 people in November 2015 and bombed Brussels airport and the city’s metro in March last year. Pictures shared on social media showed what appeared to be a small explosion inside the station. Passengers fled in panic. Trains into the station, which is one of the busiest in Belgium serving the northern and southern suburbs of Brussels, were stopped as police and army deployed in large numbers. Within 30 minutes of the blast police issued a statement on Twitter to reassure panicking residents. “Incident in Brussels central station with a citizen. Situation under control but please follow instructions,” it said. Het Laatste Nieuws, the most-read daily paper in Belgium, cited informed sources saying a man was lying on the ground with wires coming out of his clothes. There were no other casualties reported. Ellen Van Cutsem, a fashion and beauty blogger who narrowly escaped injury in the incident, described being ushered from the scene. “I managed to escape with the help of police and military,” she wrote. "[There was] a lot of smoke, complete panic.”
Police have arrested a man after responding to reports of an attack at Regent's Park Mosque in north west London. Officers were called at around 1.20am and found the man waving "an item", which was later found to be a shoe horn taken from the mosque. The suspect was hit by a Taser, arrested on suspicion of affray and taken into custody at a central London police station. Nobody was injured in the incident, which is not being treated as terrorism. A Met Police spokesman said: "The item being waved was found to be a shoe horn taken from the mosque. "The incident is not being treated as terrorism-related at this time. Officers are keeping an open mind regarding any motivation for the incident." Anyone with information can call Westminster police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111. The incident comes amid heightened tensions in the capital following a terrorist attack at a Finsbury Park mosque on Sunday night. Worshippers were hit by a van near the Muslim Welfare House mosque in north London. Darren Osborne, 47, was arrested early on Monday on suspicion of commission, preparation or instigation of terrorism, including murder and attempted murder. The attack unfolded as a man who had been taken ill was receiving first aid from the public near the mosque, where people had been saying Ramadan night prayers. The van was driven at people who were helping him. The man was pronounced dead at the scene and paramedics took nine other people to three London hospitals while two others were treated for minor injuries.
Police reportedly clashed with youths in the Stamford Hill area of north London, in the early hours of Wednesday morning. The clashes are said to have involved weapons including machetes.
A pervert who said 'I knew this would happen to me' as he was confronted by online paedophile hunters has been sentenced. Kenny Smith, 48, spent months speaking to 'Katie Summers', a person he believed was a 15-year-old girl, on Facebook and dating website Badoo. But when he attempted to meet her at a McDonalds in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear on July 3 last year, after driving 95 miles from his previous address in East Yorkshire, he was confronted by a member of Guardians of the North and was arrested.
FAIRFAX, Va. — What was supposed to be a morning of prayer and reflection in the Islamic holy month of Ramadan ended in tragedy when 17-year-old Nabra Hassanen was fatally attacked as she headed back to a Virginia mosque after enjoying a pre-dawn meal with friends.
Hassanen died of blunt force trauma to her upper body after 22-year-old Darwin Martinez Torres assaulted her with a baseball bat early Sunday in what police have described as a road rage incident in suburban Washington, authorities said Monday.
Police said Martinez Torres attacked the girl after getting into a fight with another teen in the group and they have found no evidence to suggest Hassanen’s killing was a hate crime.
“Nothing indicates that this was motivated by race or by religion. It appears the suspect became so enraged over this traffic argument that it escalated into deadly violence,” Fairfax County Police Spokeswoman Julie Parker said.
Hassanen was with a group of as many as 15 other teens who had left their Sterling-area mosque between Ramadan prayers to get food at a McDonald’s, Parker said.
Kung Fu master Wu Song showed off his creepy talents including pulling a snake through his nose and mouth and carrying buckets of water with his eyelids, in Chendu, Monday. Song said he began practicing as young as 12 years-old and was taught by several Kung Fu masters. He stated that when learning his snake talent, he first had to tame the snake, which he said was poisonous, and get it used to his smell. The Kung Fu master is also able to lift heavy objects, such as buckets full of water and pull people on a trolley, using hooks hanging from his eyelids. Song hopes in his future that his son will master the same talents. However his son Xiao Yong was less enthusiastic saying, "I should practice a lot. To be honest, it makes me really uncomfortable." SOT, Wu Song, Kung Fu master, (Mandarin): "This snake is also a poisonous snake, the biggest difficulty is to tame it. Snakes will judge everything with their sense of smell, it is difficult for it to get used to my smell." SOT, Wu Song, Kung Fu master, (Mandarin): "Now I want to my son, Xiao Yong, to have the skill." SOT, Xiao Yong, Wu Song's son (Mandarin): "Ordinary people cannot do it. In order to inherit the techniques, I should practice a lot. To be honest, it makes me really uncomfortable." SOT, Miss Li, local villager (Mandarin): "The nose is too small for the big snake to go through. It's strange, really."

During the Portland Pride Parade on Sunday in Portland Oregon, a group known as the Hell Shaking Street Preachers were preaching on the corner of Broadway and Burnside. While they were preaching, a young AntiFa member, commonly referred to as “Brady” approached them and pepper sprayed two of the street preachers. Since we do not know his full, or actual name, he will be referred to as “Child Antifa” in this article.
After he walked away from the Police, as you will see in the police report below, Child AntiFa traveled down to the Pride Festival and vandalized a Portland Police recruitment booth where he, and his friend, were both arrested.
According to a source directly involved with with the case, District Attorney Marie Atwood has dropped charges against Child AntiFa for attacking one of the street preachers because the “Victim Was Not Injured Enough.” However, she is going through with the other Street Preacher who required medical attention.
The District Attorney has also placed a no contact order on Child AntiFa. He is not allowed to come into contact with the street preachers, nor is he allowed to participate in any protesting.
Child AntiFa is well known to police and conservatives in Portland Oregon. He has been involved in many different confrontations between AntiFa and Conservatives. In the video below, you can see him attempting to debate Patriot Prayer founder Joey Gibson.
Video of a woman demanding a "white doctor" for her son at a walk-in clinic in Mississauga, Ont. has gone viral, sparking outrage across the country.
The video, which was recorded by a witness and posted online, shows the woman repeatedly demanding to see a white doctor in a four-minute argument with staff and patients at the clinic.
"I would like to see a white doctor," the woman says at the beginning of the video, to a member of the clinic staff in the waiting room. Her son, who appears to be approximately eight years old, can be seen sitting quietly beside her.
"You're telling me there's not one white doctor in this whole entire building?" she says.
The clinic staffer can be heard explaining that a white pediatrician will be in at 4 p.m., but this does not appear to satisfy the woman. She continues to complain, claiming that she waited five-and-a-half hours to see a "brown doctor" whom she says did not help her child with his chest pains.
"He was not speaking English. His teeth were brown. I do not need his help," she says in the video.
The woman's complaints quickly draw the attention of others in the waiting room who accuse her of being racist. Several also suggest she take her child to a hospital, but she refuses, answering the suggestions with a racist slur.
The woman becomes more agitated as the four-minute video progresses, eventually approaching the desk to repeat her demands for a white doctor.
"Oh my God, what type of horrible country do I live in?" she says in the video. "Being a white person in this country, I should just shoot myself."
Later in the video, she appears to back off her requirement that the doctor be white, and instead asks for one who was born in Canada.
"My kid is part not-white, so can we get somebody to see him that at least speaks English?" she says. "I spoken (sic) English. We want somebody Canadian to see him."
Hitesh Bhardwaj, who recorded the video in the waiting room, says the incident shocked him.
"Seeing it so openly, without any fear, in front of so many people, without even fearing that someone can report her – it was really shocking," he told CTV Toronto.
Bhardwaj, who immigrated to Canada from India five years ago, says he had "no doubt" that what happened at the clinic was wrong. He added that the incident troubled him "for the rest of the day."
"it was a mixed feeling of being angry being frustrated," he said.
He can be heard arguing with the angry mother toward the end of the video, telling her that a doctor doesn't need to be white to speak English.
A young woman also confronts the mother at an earlier point in the video.
"Your child clearly has more issues with you being his mother than him needing to see a doctor," the young woman says. "You are extremely rude and racist."
Bhardwaj hailed the young woman for her courage in intervening. "There was a very brave young girl who came right up to her face and said that you are racist and you shouldn't be doing those things," he said.
The encounter ended without further incident, and the woman was escorted out of the waiting room.
Peel police say they were called to the clinic Sunday afternoon for a "disturbance."
Const. Mark Fischer said the caller reported a woman who was "being verbally aggressive" and demanding a "white doctor."
"The officer found that no criminal offence has been committed or was in the process of being committed," Fischer told CTV Toronto.
A doctor at the clinic eventually treated the boy, police said

According to Hammou Laamrani...
The Arab region is an example of climate-security risks and climate-induced migration. Climate change can contribute to a cycle of fragility by affecting the availability of water, food, land, and other crucial resources. Scarcities and price spikes add to existing challenges that trigger conflicts and violence. Hammou Laamrani, long-standing field expert, and Advisor to the GIZ for 'Adaptation to Climate Change in the Water Sector in the MENA Region' emphasizes why climate change needs to be linked to human security. To successfully implement development projects, one has to realize that climate is an issue of security, stability and prosperity.
"Actually, the Arab region is a lab example of impacts of climate change and environment change is impacting livelihoods: mass migration and conflicts. Implications not only on the Arab region but on peace and stability worldwide, this is a reality. The region is in a development impasse, by all means. Climate change is now surely going to be triggering and magnifying those existing risk factors for human security and for peace and security worldwide.
We have seen over the last few years, climate-induced migration internally and that has triggered conflict and civil wars. Those have in final impacts on migration beyond the borders – be it in the region or outside the region. I think we are witnessing today a first generation of climate impacts on livelihoods with implications on peace and stability in the region and beyond the region.
So far, in terms of policy, climate change is more of a development issues. It is not yet framed in the nexus climate change and security. We have not seen the same level of engagements to put climate change at the same level of the fight against terrorists for example which is a security issue. In that way, we have to work on awareness raising at the policy level but also at the practitioner’s level. We also need to bring together the regions and see what are the learning opportunities between the Arab region and other regions that are already ahead of us in linking climate change to security and stability.
The third element is that we need a new generation of competences and capacities that can move from the framing of the nexus “climate change and security” to implementation and do things on the ground – and do them with this perspective of: climate change is not only a development issue – it is also a security, stability and prosperity issue in the region."
A Kentucky man who acknowledged threatening President Barack Obama in a poem has been sentenced to nearly three years in prison.
Johnny Logan Spencer apologized for writing the poem, which described a fatal sniper shooting of the president.
The 28-year-old said in federal court in Louisville on Monday that he was upset about his mother's death and had fallen in with a white supremacist group that had helped him kick a drug habit.
U.S. District Judge Joseph H. McKinley Jr. called Spencer's writing of the poem an extremely dangerous thing. Spencer will be on supervised release for three years after he completes the 33-month sentence.
The poem, titled "The Sniper," was posted on a website in 2007 and again in 2009 after Obama took office.
A new viral video making the rounds is confusing the hell out of a lot of people who are now learning about the horrors of “ecosex.”
The video, uploaded to Facebook by In the NOW, begins with the words, “there are humans that ‘f**k’ nature” and shows hippies literally rubbing dirt on themselves and licking trees.
One woman can be seen sensually shoving dirt into her mouth before the words “ecosexuals consider earth to be a lover not a mother” appear onscreen.
“They even perform ‘weddings,'” the video continues, showing a mass congregation of “ecosexuals” marrying “anything natural, from rocks to mountains and seas.”
The clip goes on to state that “ecosexuals believe their ‘faith’ will help environmentalism be taken more seriously.”
A Boynton Beach toddler found a loaded pistol in his “My Little Learning” toy box while officials were investigating his home for possible child neglect.
The 3-year-old boy wanted to bring out his toys while officers were in his home, according to a police report. His toy box had several small books in it, but while officers were talking to an adult in the house, the toddler pulled out a black 9mm semi-automatic pistol. One officer immediately took the gun and found a bullet was in the chamber with the safety off.
Rosalyn Faniel, 34 of Boynton Beach, who the officers came to investigate for possible child neglect, said the gun wasn’t hers and she didn’t know it was in the apartment, the report said.
While searching the home, the officers also found a yellow box of 9mm ammunition on top of the refrigerator, next to a black scale and a pink makeup bag filled with six plastic bags of white and pink powder, the report said. The powder tested positive for oxycodone and weighed 0.6 grams in total.
Faniel was arrested on a charge of child neglect Tuesday, and her bail was set at $3,000, according to online court records. She was released from jail Wednesday.
She was also charged with failure to appear in court and violating release conditions, the records said. An additional $500 was added to her bail for violating release conditions. She is scheduled to appear before Circuit Judge Charles Burton on July 13.
Recently a protest held by refugees against “monotonous” Italian food was “excessive”, especially at a time when thousands of Italians go hungry, the president of a police organization told The Local.
“There are thousands of Italians living in poverty and who aren’t even eating one meal a day, let alone two or three,” he said.
For two days, a group of about 40 asylum-seekers staying at a refugee centre in the Veneto province of Belluno refused to eat the “pasta with tomato sauce, bread and eggs” meals they were given and called to be fed food from their own countries, Libero Quotidiano reported.
To reinforce their point, they blocked a street with a wooden bench, put their lunch on the ground along with bags of clothes and threatened to leave the centre in La Secca, a hamlet in Ponte nelle Alpi.
They reportedly said “we do not eat this stuff”.
The refugees, said to have been staying at the centre for the past four months, also reportedly slashed the tires of cars belonging to staff working there in protest against living conditions.
Sam, a migrant from Gambia who has been staying at a centre on the outskirts of Rome for almost a year, told The Local that the food, which mainly consists of pasta, “is not good” and that some have started making their own meals.
“We need the diet from our country,” he said.
Over 28 Million Africans have been enslaved in the Muslim world during the past 14 centuries While much has been written concerning the Transatlantic slave trade, surprisingly little attention has been given to the Islamic slave trade across the Sahara, the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean.
While the European involvement in the Transatlantic slave trade to the Americas lasted for just over three centuries, the Arab involvement in the slave trade has lasted fourteen centuries, and in some parts of the Muslim world is still continuing to this day. A comparison of the Muslim slave trade to the American slave trade reveals some interesting contrasts.
While two out of every three slaves shipped across the Atlantic were men, the proportions were reversed in the Muslim slave trade. Two women for every man were enslaved by the Muslims.
While the mortality rate for slaves being transported across the Atlantic was as high as 10%, the percentage of slaves dying in transit in the Transsahara and East African slave trade was between 80 and 90%!
While almost all the slaves shipped across the Atlantic were for agricultural work, most of the slaves destined for the Muslim Middle East were for sexual exploitation as concubines, in harems, and for military service.
