Manchester attack: Police not sharing information with US – Trump Isn’t the Only One Feed Up With US Leakers

Manchester attack: Police not sharing information with US – BBC News

“Police investigating the Manchester Arena bomb attack have stopped sharing information with the US after leaks to the media.

UK officials were outraged when photos appearing to show debris from the attack appeared in the New York Times.

It came after the name of bomber Salman Abedi was leaked to US media just hours after the attack, which left 22 dead.

Theresa May said she would tell Donald Trump at a Nato meeting that shared intelligence “must remain secure”.

The US’s acting ambassador to the UK “unequivocally condemned” the leaks in a BBC radio interview.

“These leaks were reprehensible, deeply distressing,” Lewis Lukens said.

“We have had communications at the highest level of our government … we are determined to identify these leaks and to stop them.””

Non-Western Immigrants Consume 59% Of Denmark’s Tax Revenue | National Economics Editorial

Non-Western Immigrants Consume 59% Of Denmark’s Tax Revenue | National Economics Editorial

If something can’t go on forever, it won’t.

“A recent study conducted by Denmark’s Ministry of Finance concluded that in 2014, immigrants and their descendants cost Danish taxpayers at net loss of 28 billion Crowns per year….

The report shows conclusively that immigration has been an economic disaster for Denmark.

In short: 59% of the tax surplus collected from native Danes is spent on ethnic minorities, who are a massive drain on the system.

This would be roughly equivalent to America’s federal governmentspending $2.1 trillion per year on immigrants—a number so large it defies all logic and reason.

Such shocking findings are often greeted with denial.  Is the study legitimate?  How is this possible?

First, the study was conducted internally by Denmark’s own finance department, in order to see exactly where Danish taxes were being spent.  Furthermore, the methodology is explicit, and the data transparent.

The study is good.

Second, although the data is shocking, it is believable.

Consider that ethnic minorities, who are by definition immigrants to Denmark, represent 84% of all welfare recipients, as of 2016….”

Government’s “Dietary fat guidelines have no evidence base”

Government’s “Dietary fat guidelines have no evidence base”

“Publishing in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, Dr Zoë Harcombe of the Institute of Clinical Exercise and Health Science of the University of the West of Scotland researched both the origins and the results of following the dietary fat guidelines that have prevailed in the US and the United Kingdom for almost 40 years. The evidence provides no support for the assertion that low-fat diets are healthier, especially as the incidences of obesity and diabetes have escalated dramatically during the same four decades of the guidelines’ implementation.”

Low fat usually means more sugar. Fat sticks with you, it’s satisfying. Sugar gives you a buzz and then a crash.

Melania’s First Foreign Trip – When In Rome, Jerusalem & Riyadh

“[She] represented the American woman with appropriateness, elegance, and style.”

“One (Saudi) paper called her “classy and conservative” and others drew on the similarities between her jumpsuit and the traditional abaya worn by many Saudi women.

Other people related her large gold belt to a heavyweight fighter’s but Susan Bigsby, a Palm Beach image consultant, told The Washington Postthat it couldn’t have been more fitting. She said:

“Muslim women, while respecting their religion, also love glamour. You can be sure they were studying — and appreciating — Melania and Ivanka … They represented the American woman with appropriateness, elegance and style.”…

ROME: It seems, however unfair to the rest of us, Melania was blessed with both beauty and brains. Grisham described her hospital visit to The Washington Examiner and said, “She spoke to them in Italian, she signed bandages and she took lots of selfies.”

By “spoke,” Grisham probably didn’t mean a “ciao” here and a “grazie” there. Italian is only one of five languages the first lady speaks fluently.

Venezuela’s health care crisis overwhelms hospitals in neighboring Colombia – Socialist Fail Again

Venezuela’s health care crisis overwhelms hospitals in neighboring Colombia | Fox News

“Venezuela’s health crisis is spilling over to neighboring Colombia, where the border town of Cucuta is struggling to provide the medical care increasingly unavailable in the socialist country.

As a result, Cucuta’s main hospital has amassed a monumental amount of debt as it helps out the thousands of Venezuelan patients that arrive every year from across the border. A large number of those are women in labor.

“In the first quarter of 2017, [Erasmo Meoz Hospital] admitted 1,000 Venezuelans. The increasing rate is worrying, as it could come to 4,000 migrants cared for by the end of this year,””

Source: Mick Hartley: Three hooded men took turns

“The Indonesian couple sentenced to a public lashing for gay sex last week have now received their punishment under sharia law. It was quite a show:

The crowd roared as two men in their early 20s – one muttering through clenched teeth – received 83 lashes each outside a mosque in the Indonesian province of Aceh for the crime of gay sex.”
