BBC Question Time FURY: No Brexit Party panellist AGAIN despite leading EU election polls

'No member of Nigel Farage’s eurosceptic group will have the chance to debate on the flagship debate programme despite being ahead in the polls. Instead, the popular political broadcast will feature politicians from the Tories and Labour. Guests joining host Fiona Bruce include Damian Green MP, Tracy Brain, Camilla Cavendish, Miatta Fahnbulleh and Simon Jordan.

Mr Farage hit out at BBC Question Time last week after it didn’t feature any Brexit Party candidates.

He told a crowd at a rally in Wolverhampton: “We can choose to buy different newspapers.

“We can choose to listen to different commercial radio stations. “Where I have a problem is when we are effectively taxed £150 a year just to have a television in our house.

“When the public service broadcaster does not put a single representative of this new party on any major television programme, even when we have gone from nothing to topping the polls."

Social media users have criticised the panel ahead of the show tonight.

One person said: “So no MEPs on EU Election Day and no representatives of the Greens or Lib Dems!”

While another added: “Where is the winner of tomorrow’s election?”'

Farage on course to thrash Tories as Euro Election polls close - and Boris could be heading to No10, Mail poll reveals

'Nigel Farage is heading for a landslide victory in the European Parliament elections – and Boris Johnson has raced into a big early lead in the battle to succeed Theresa May as Prime Minister.

They are the main findings of an opinion survey which concluded at midnight on Wednesday after it became clear that Mrs May was on the brink of resigning.

The Survation poll for the Daily Mail shows Mr Farage’s Brexit Party well ahead in the European elections on 31 per cent, trailed by Labour on 23, the Conservatives on 14 and the Lib Dems on 12.

Nearly seven out of ten Tory voters said the reason they did not intend to vote for Mrs May yesterday was because of her failure to deliver Brexit. Calls for her to step down were backed by 57 per cent of Conservatives with 25 per cent against. With the Tory leadership contest about to begin, most of the party’s supporters appear to have already decided that former Foreign Secretary Johnson is the best person to revive their dismal ratings and sort out the Brexit chaos.

A total of 36 per cent of Conservatives said he should be next leader, with Home Secretary Sajid Javid a distant second on nine per cent, followed by Environment Secretary Michael Gove on seven and Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt on five.

The highest placed women candidates are Andrea Leadsom, who resigned from the Cabinet on Wednesday, and fellow Brexiteer, former TV presenter Esther McVey.

Both are on three per cent. Mr Johnson has almost as big a lead over his Conservative rivals among voters as a whole. With the Tories expected to choose a new leader by the end of July, his fellow leadership contenders will have their work cut out to close the gap.'

I am wondering if or when /May will resign. If it was anybody else I'd expect them to be gone before Monday when the results are announced.

Media will wish to attempt to ignore and dismiss this historic vote. They will dismiss it as just a protest vote, that its irrelevant claiming people will behaved differently in a general election, etc... whine ... ignore... whine .... dismiss....

Effectively it will be that second referendum the remainers claimed they wanted, and they are not going to be at all happy with the results. Normal people would at this point give in, but will live in a world of post-facts politics.

Free Speech / Censorship / Re: Julian Assange
« Last post by Al Bundy on May 23, 2019, 07:59:55 pm »
Assange, 47, was arrested on April 11 after being handed over to British authorities by Ecuador. He is serving a 50-week sentence in a London prison for skipping bail while the U.S. seeks his extradition for conspiring to hack into military computers and spill secrets about U.S. operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. >:(

Hrafnsson, who has visited the Australian activist in jail, said Assange saw his eviction coming for weeks as relations with President Lenin Moreno’s government deteriorated, so he took great care to scrub computers and hard drives of any compromising material, including future planned leaks or internal communications with WikiLeaks collaborators.

Still, Hrafnsson said he fully expects Moreno or the Americans to claim revelations that don’t exist. He called Monday’s proceedings a “horse show” because no legal authority can guarantee Assange’s devices haven’t been tampered with, or the chain of custody unbroken, in the six weeks since his arrest.

“If anything surfaces, I can assure you it would’ve been planted,” he said. “Julian isn’t a novice when it comes to security and securing his information. We expected this to happen and protections have been in place for a very long time.”

A group of Assange’s supporters gathered outside Ecuador’s Embassy in London to protest the judicial proceeding. Demonstrators put banners on the railings with images of Assange, his mouth covered by an American flag, and chanted “Thieves! Thieves! Thieves! Shame on you!”

Ecuadorian authorities said they will hand over any belongings not given to U.S. or Ecuadorian investigators to Assange’s lawyers, who weren’t invited to Monday’s inventory-taking. Hrafnsson said he didn’t have a full inventory of Assange’s devices

Moreno decided to evict Assange from the embassy after accusing him of working with political opponents to hack into his phone and release damaging personal documents and photos, including several that showed him eating lobster in bed and the numbers of bank accounts allegedly used to hide proceeds from corruption.

Moreno’s actions immediately were celebrated by the Trump administration, which was key in helping Ecuador secure a $4.2 billion credit line from the International Monetary Fund and has provided the tiny South American country with new trade and military deals in recent weeks.
“The Americans are the ones pulling the strings, and Moreno their puppet dancing to the tune of money,” said Hrafnsson.
Separately on Monday, Swedish authorities issued a request for a detention order against Assange.
On May 13, Swedish prosecutors reopened a preliminary investigation against Assange, who visited Sweden in 2010, because two Swedish women said they were the victims of sex crimes committed by Assange.

While a case of alleged sexual misconduct against Assange in Sweden was dropped in 2017 when the statute of limitations expired, a rape allegation remains. Swedish authorities have had to shelve it because Assange was living at the embassy at the time and there was no prospect of bringing him to Sweden.

The statute of limitations in the rape case expires in August next year. Assange has denied wrongdoing, asserting that the allegations were politically motivated and that the sex was consensual.

According to the request for a detention order obtained by The Associated Press, Assange is wanted for “intentionally having carried out an intercourse” with an unnamed woman “by unduly exploiting that she was in a helpless state because of sleep.”

Propaganda / Guccifer 2.0 wasn't Russian?
« Last post by poseidonlost on May 23, 2019, 07:12:07 pm »
HA, this article was posted on the Ron Paul Institute's site. It checks out to me. Reminds me of the time I heard someone say, "Nothing is leaked by mistake." I'm really starting to think that more and more as time goes on...

Nope, Guccifer 2.0 Was Not a Russian Creation by Larry C Johnson

Larry Johnson 22 May 2019

Russia did not hack the DNC. This is not an opinion. It is a conclusion that flows from one very specific claim made by the Special Counsel—i.e., Guccifer 2.0 was a fictional identity created by Russian Military Intelligence, the GRU. If Guccifer was in fact a creation or creature of the GRU, then the forensic evidence should show that this entity was operating from Russia or under the direct control of the GRU.  The forensic evidence shows something quite different—the meta data in the Guccifer 2.0 documents were manipulated deliberately to plant Russian fignerprints. This was not an accident nor an oversight due to carelessness.
