Milo Yiannopoulos has his book canceled, resigns from Breitbart

Milo has been dealt a setback by the mainstream media but promises to emerge stronger than before.

The fake stream media have done a great deal to smear Donald Trump, his well-known supporters and his ordinary supporters with every form a lie, half-truth and baseless bit of innuendo imaginable.

Their latest victim is a well-known Trump supporter Milo Yiannopoulos. The allegation against him is one of the cruelest and defamatory imaginable. He is being accused by the mainstream media of endorsing pedophilia.

One can find the transcript of Milo’s interview which inspired the allegation here.

The discussion was intelligent at times, thought-provoking at others, and as Milo often does, he offered his unique brand of humour, which some love and some hate. Many sorts of humour involve the use of off-colour material. Milo is no exception. He is no better or worse than many in this respect and should not be treated as some sort of outlier in this respect.  But there is no doubt that at no time in the interview did he endorse, promote or excuse acts of pedophilia.

In fact, there is little doubt in my mind that Milo was targeted with this false allegation because he has not only lambasted pedophilia time and again but has exposed prominent pedophiles, the details of which are in his latest Facebook post.

The list includes a former associate of the former British MP and Hillary Clinton supporter Louise Mensch, who during the course of the election season made her own inflammatory remarks about Russian culture. Needless to say Mensch is far from intelligent.

Milo seems clearly upset by these allegations as anyone would be. It shows the base character of mainstream media fully and clearly. While I have in the past been critical of some of Milo’s statements, I have always supported his right to free speech, personal safety, safety for those attending his events and I would defend anyone against such an insidious lie.

I have always been critical of so-called statuary rape laws (laws where two consenting people of a clear age of reason, can still be prosecuted for various acts) for the same reason I oppose all laws which put arbitrary numerical standards ahead of logic, ethics, morals and common sense. There are after all many young adults capable of reasonable decision making and this should logically be taken into account. Likewise, there are many old adults incapable of anything rational or intelligent, but no one is calling to legislate against that.

There are after all many young adults capable of reasonable decision making and this should logically be taken into account. Likewise, there are many old adults incapable of anything rational or intelligent, but no one is calling to legislate against that.

When the justice system says that a 15-year-old school boy involved with an older teacher is the same thing as violent rape of actual children, one’s priorities are lost and so is one’s moral compass.

Most 15-year-old boys are frivolous and would like nothing more than to engage in a carnal experience with an older woman. This in no way should be compared to the vile, fiendish, un-natural acts that criminals like Jimmy Savile and Edward Heath inflicted on their victims. Incidentally, both men lived into old age and died without being persecuted for their crimes against children.

The continued attempts of mainstream media to slander anyone who endorses Trump shows that ironically we are living in an age where the mainstream media slime will do anything to score a goal. They will debase the very kinds of people they tend to lionise so long as they are ‘on message’.

But the moment someone who is black, female, homosexual or of a non-Anglo-Saxon background expresses views contrary to the post-modern narrative, it’s open season. The hypocrisy demonstrates that the ultra-liberal left were never about tolerance, they were as they are, all about the destruction of tradition, so much so that they will happily attack those they claim to defend when convenient.

Why is it that many Christians are happy to engage in dialogue with people like Milo even if they disagree with elements of his life, yet the liberal media salivate at the chance to knock him down a few pegs? Many conservative-minded individuals including Alex Jones have steadfastly stood up for Milo’s right to free speech and his latest war against the vile mainstream media whose action are frankly more vulgar than any of Milo’s off colour jokes and more dangerous than any of his less than balanced comments.

The whole ‘scandal’ is little more than a attempt by the liberal mainstream media to divide and destroy the new media movement and the wider conservative and libertarian movements.

By painting Milo as something he isn’t, they want to use his remarks to drive a wedge between former allies. First they’ll attack Milo because he’s carnally flamboyant and most conservatives are not, then they’ll come for RT because RT is based in Russia and most American conservatives are not Russian, then they’ll come for websites that challenge neo-liberal economics, then Christian websites and before one knows it, all of alt-media will be in a perilous position. However, I ultimately believe that msm’s attempt to divide and destroy, will fail.

But what the msm didn’t bet on is that social media means that the likes of Milo can continue to cultivate their audience and make money in doing so whilst the ratings of fake news continue to plummet. Advertisers well eventually abandon msm like rats on a sinking ship.

Although his soon to be published book Dangerous has been canceled by the publisher, I have a feeling a new publisher will jump at the chance to earn a piece of Milo’s pie.

Milo has also now resigned from Breitbart. He claims his decision is his alone, but then again so did Michael Flynn resign of his own will.

I have no doubt that Milo will continue to be a successful commentator, but the mainstream media’s attempt to slander Milo based on a lie is totally unacceptable. Criticise Milo all you want, I’ve done so myself several times in the past. But to attempt to censor someone through lies, media exploitation and innuendo, is wrong in the land of the First Amendment. It would be morally wrong, anywhere.

With this in mind here is a list of American allies with ages of consent lower than the US average and lower than the UK-wide age of 16.

Albania: 14 (NATO member)

Austria: 14 (EU member)

Croatia: 15 (EU and NATO member)

Czech Republic: 15 (EU and NATO member)

Denmark: 15 (EU and NATO member)

Estonia: 14 (EU and NATO member)

France: 15 (EU and NATO member)

Germany: 14 (EU and NATO member)

Greece: 15( EU and NATO member)

Italy: 14 (EU and NATO member)

Poland: 15 (EU and NATO member)

Sweden: 15 (EU member)

Before people accuse Milo of anything, one must accuse these countries who are traditional American allies of the same. They must also be willing to say that these US allies are uncivilised and unjust places. Are the fake news merchants willing to do so? For shame, fake stream media, for shame!

BREXIT chaos, as May’s cabinet crumbles (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 18.

Alex Christoforou

Published

on

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris take a quick look at the various scenarios now facing a crumbling May government, as the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement is forcing cabinet members to resign in rapid succession. The weekend ahead is fraught with uncertainty for the UK and its position within, or outside, the European Union.

If Theresa May’s ill-fated Brexit Withdrawal Agreement is eventually rejected this could trigger a vote of no confidence, snap elections or even a new referendum…

Here are six possible scenarios facing Theresa May and the UK (via The Guardian)

1 Parliament blocks Theresa May’s draft withdrawal agreement and political declarations

May faces an enormous task to win parliamentary approval, given that Labour, the SNP, the DUP and 51 Tories have said they will not vote for it.

If the remaining 27 EU member states sign off the draft agreement on 25 November, the government will have to win over MPs at a crucial vote in early December.

If May loses the vote, she has 21 days to put forward a new plan. If she wins, she is safe for now.

2 May withdraws the current draft agreement

The prime minister could decide that she will not get the draft agreement through parliament and could seek to renegotiate with the EU.

This would anger Tory backbenchers and Brussels and would be seen as a humiliation for her government. It might spark a leadership contest too.

3 Extend article 50

May could ask the European council to extend article 50, giving her more time to come up with a deal that could be passed by parliament – at present, the UK will leave on 29 March 2019.

Such a request would not necessarily be granted. Some EU governments are under pressure from populist parties to get the UK out of the EU as soon as possible.

4 Conservative MPs trigger a vote of no confidence in the prime minister

If Conservative MPs believe May is no longer fit for office, they could trigger a no-confidence vote.

Members of the European Research Group claim that Graham Brady, the chair of the powerful 1922 Committee, will receive the necessary 48 letters this week.

A vote could be held as soon as early next week. All Tory MPs would be asked to vote for or against their leader. If May wins, she cannot be challenged for at least 12 months. If she loses, there would be a leadership contest to decide who will become prime minister.

5 General election – three possible routes

If May fails to get support for the current deal, she could call a snap general election.

She would table a parliamentary vote for a general election that would have to be passed by two thirds of MPs. She would then set an election date, which could be by the end of January.

This is an unlikely option. May’s political credibility was severely damaged when she called a snap election in 2017, leading to the loss of the Conservative party’s majority.

Alternatively, a general election could be called if a simple majority of MPs vote that they have no confidence in the government. Seven Tory MPs, or all of the DUP MPs, would have to turn against the government for it to lose the vote, triggering a two-week cooling-off period. May would remain in office while MPs negotiate a new government.

Another route to a general election would be for the government to repeal or amend the Fixed-term Parliaments Act which creates a five-year period between general elections. A new act would have to be passed through both the Commons and the Lords – an unlikely scenario.

6 Second referendum

May could decide it is impossible to find a possible draft deal that will be approved by parliament and go for a people’s vote.

The meaningful vote could be amended to allow MPs to vote on whether the country holds a second referendum. It is unclear whether enough MPs would back a second referendum and May has ruled it out.

Brexit Withdrawal Agreement may lead to Theresa May’s downfall (Video)

The Duran – News in Review – Episode 151.

Alex Christoforou

Published

on

The Brexit Withdrawal Agreement has been published and as many predicted, including Nigel Farage, the document is leading to the collapse of Theresa May’s government.

During an interview with iTV’s Piers Morgan, remain’s Alistair Campell and leave’s Nigel Farage, were calling May’s Brexit deal a complete disaster.

Via iTV

Alastair Campbell: “This doesn’t do remotely what was offered…what is the point”

“Parliament is at an impasse”

“We have to go back to the people” …”remain has to be on the ballot paper”

Nigel Farage:

“This is the worst deal in history. We are giving away in excess of 40B pounds in return for precisely nothing. Trapped still inside the European Union’s rulebook.

“Nothing has been achieved.”

“In any negotiation in life…the other side need to know that you are serious about walking away.”

“What monsieur Barnier knew from day one, is that at no point did Theresa May intend to walk away.”

“Fundamental matter of trust to the electors of our country and those who govern us.”

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss Theresa May’s Brexit Withdrawal Agreement, and why the deal is a full on victory for the European Union and a document of subjugation for the United Kingdom.

Coming in at 585 pages, the draft agreement will be closely scrutinized over the coming days but here are some of the highlights as outlined by Zerohedge

  • UK and EU to use the best endeavours to supersede Ireland protocol by 2020
  • UK can request extension of the transition period any time before July 1st, 2020
  • EU, UK See Level-Playing Field Measures in Future Relationship
  • Transition period may be extended once up to date yet to be specified in the text
  • EU and UK shall establish single customs territory and Northern Ireland is in same customs territory as Great Britain

The future relationship document is less than seven pages long. It says the U.K. and EU are seeking a free-trade area with cooperation on customs and rules: “Comprehensive arrangements creating a free trade area combining deep regulatory and customs cooperation, underpinned by provisions ensuring a level playing field for open and fair competition.”

The wording might raise concerns among Brexiters who don’t want regulatory cooperation and the measures on fair competition could amount to shackling the U.K. to EU rules.

As Bloomberg’s Emma Ross-Thomas writes, “There’s a clear sense in the documents that we’re heading for a customs union in all but name. Firstly via the Irish backstop, and then via the future relationship.”

Separately, a government summary of the draft agreement suggests role for parliament in deciding whether to extend the transition or to move in to the backstop.

But perhaps most importantly, regarding the controversial issue of the Irish border, the future relationship document says both sides aim to replace the so-called backstop – the thorniest issue in the negotiations – with a “subsequent agreement that establishes alternative arrangements for ensuring the absence of a hard border on the island of Ireland on a permanent footing.”

On this topic, recall that the U.K.’s fear was of being locked into the backstop arrangement indefinitely in the absence of a broader trade deal. The draft agreement includes a review process to try to give reassurance that the backstop would never be needed. Basically, the U.K. could choose to seek an extension to the transition period – where rules stay the same as they are currently – or opt to trigger the backstop conditions. In fact, as Bloomberg notes, the word “backstop,” which has been a sticking point over the Irish border for weeks, is mentioned only once in the text.

As Bloomberg further adds, the withdrawal agreement makes clear that the U.K. will remain in a single customs area with the EU until there’s a solution reached on the Irish border. It’s what Brexiteers hate, because it makes it more difficult for the U.K. to sign its own free-trade deals, which they regard as a key prize of Brexit.

Predictably, EU Commission President Juncker said decisive progress has been made in negotiations.

Meanwhile, as analysts comb over the documents, Jacob Rees-Mogg, chairman of the European Research Group, has already written to Conservative lawmakers urging them to vote against the deal. He says:

  • May is handing over money for “little or nothing in return”
  • The agreement treats Northern Ireland differently from the rest of the U.K.
  • It will “lock” the U.K. into a customs union with the EU
  • It breaks the Tory election manifesto of 2017

4 resignations and counting: May’s government ‘falling apart before our eyes’ over Brexit deal

The beginning of the end for Theresa May’s government.

The Duran

Published

on

Via RT


Four high profile resignations have followed on the heels of Theresa May’s announcement that her cabinet has settled on a Brexit deal, with Labour claiming that the Conservative government is at risk of completely dissolving.

Shailesh Vara, the Minister of State at the Northern Ireland Office was the first top official to resign after the prime minister announced that her cabinet had reached a draft EU withdrawal agreement.

An hour after his announcement, Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab – the man charged with negotiating and finalizing the deal – said he was stepping down, stating that the Brexit deal in its current form suffers from deep flaws. Esther McVey, Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, submitted her letter of resignation shortly afterwards. More resignations have followed.

Labour’s shadow Cabinet Office minister, Jon Trickett, predicted that this is the beginning of the end for May’s government.

The government is falling apart before our eyes as for a second time the Brexit secretary has refused to back the prime minister’s Brexit plan. This so-called deal has unraveled before our eyes

Shailesh Vara: UK to be stuck in ‘a half-way house with no time limit’

Kicking off Thursday’s string of resignations, Vara didn’t mince words when describing his reservations about the cabinet-stamped Brexit deal.

Theresa May’s EU withdrawal agreement leaves the UK in a “halfway house with no time limit on when we will finally become a sovereign nation,” his letter of resignation states. Vara went on to warn that the draft agreement leaves a number of critical issues undecided, predicting that it “will take years to conclude” a trade deal with the bloc.

“We will be locked in a customs arrangement indefinitely, bound by rules determined by the EU over which we have no say,” he added.

Dominic Raab: Deal can’t be ‘reconciled’ with promises made to public

Announcing his resignation on Thursday morning, Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab tweeted: “I cannot in good conscience support the terms proposed for our deal with the EU.”

Raab claimed that the deal in its current form gives the EU veto power over the UK’s ability to annul the deal.

No democratic nation has ever signed up to be bound by such an extensive regime.

Former Conservative Party leader Iain Duncan Smith said that Raab’s resignation as Brexit secretary is “devastating” for May.

“It sounds like he has been ignored,” he told the BBC.

Raab’s departure will undoubtedly encourage other Brexit supporters to question the deal, political commentators have observed.

Esther McVey: Deal ‘does not honor’ Brexit referendum

Work and Pensions Secretary Esther McVey didn’t hold back when issuing her own letter of resignation. According to McVey, the deal “does not honour” the result of the Brexit referendum, in which a majority of Brits voted to leave the European Union.

Suella Braverman: ‘Unable to sincerely support’ deal

Suella Braverman, a junior minister in Britain’s Brexit ministry, issued her resignation on Thursday, saying that she couldn’t stomach the deal.

“I now find myself unable to sincerely support the deal agreed yesterday by cabinet,” she said in a letter posted on Twitter.

Braverman said that the deal is not what the British people voted for, and threatened to tear the country apart.

“It prevents an unequivocal exit from a customs union with the EU,” she said.
