    Aljaz tv, BREAKING: ❗️

    Nigel Farage, former leader of the UKIP, is now a person of interest in the investigation into Foreign meddling in the US Presidential elections. More details when known…

      Guardian report that a source (anonymous I guess) says he is of interest because of his relationships with individuals connected to Trump and Assange.

      https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2017/jun/01/nigel-farage-is-person-of-interest-in-fbi-investigation-into-trump-and-russia

      Farage dismisses the report as ‘baloney’

      http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/06/01/nigel-farage-person-interest-fbi-investigation-donald-trump/

      The Telegraph says he is not accused of any wrongdoing and is not a suspect.

      Nige will be revealing if he is a Russian Spy shortly! 😜

        and I missed the reveal……

        Somehow I think it would have been a big anti climax and I would have been left very disappointed….

            yep, that’s it. That’s the whole show, I think you need to go about 17 or 18 mins in for the ‘reveal’. πŸ˜€

              Righto. πŸ‘ I might as well – George Webb has gone quiet, I’ve got the time at the mo. George might be sleeping while Jase stands the first watch.

              Less than an hour ago…. He’s still unhinged. Apparently a women takes a beating for talking to him and he feels ” a little bit bad”.

              AC, I am a little confused, who are you talking about? Farage, and if so I am not sure what this random guy has to do with Nigel Farage.

              George Webb. -the guy in the video.

              Gezza brought up George Webb, it’s the newest exciting thing.
              Just like a movie, full of intrigue and all made-up.
              Maybe we need a Webb thread all of it’s own…. call it “Webb of Lies”.

               /  June 2, 2017

              Got it, sorry AC, thought you were replying about Farage, didn’t realise it was to G about George Webb.

              If it is the newest exciting thing I will have to check him out…

               /  June 2, 2017

              Good to see George has made it safely through the night without the MS13 kill squad doing their *wet work* on him, AC. The movie continues.

              I’ll get back to Nigel. Up to 26:16 & he’s promised the big reveal in a few minutes. I like Nige – seems quite a smart guy & GSOH.

            • Missy

               /  June 2, 2017

              That must have been Nige’s hook for his show this evening. I got distracted with some other stuff and ended up missing most of his show.

              Nige hates Juncker, so that is a good thing, a bit of a Winston but a little more entertaining. πŸ™‚

              You could definitely have a beer at the pub with Nige.

              He keeps banging on about Boris’s Β£350 a day they have no control over with callers – very funny to watch – right until thend. Gives the low down on the “person of interest” allegation right at the end around 53:00 – “complete & utter BALONEY”. Very amusing stuff before he says that too. Worth a sqiz.

        Righto, I’ve caught up with the latest Day 221 vid Webb vid on YouTube putting out the most recent intel & rock solid theories based on the increasing *metadata* coming in to the intrepid Seth Rich murder investigators George n Jase @Increasingfantasies.wacko

        George reports that he hasn’t even been able to uncheck all the blocked responses so obviously the Deepstate Cornrow Gang & their ISI Techie sidekicks are pulling all the stops out to shut them down !

        More to tell us about “John Ash (who’s he ?), David Petraeus & the F-35”?He’s “not pushing for the conspirators to go to jail. Casablanca maybe? ” 😳

        Apologises that he had to out a “Pakistani ISI guy” at the Film Academy but he had no choice – says he’ll “take all the consequences”. but very quickly people then reported to him all the people they know who’ve got scholarships there who are like 50 years old & on terrorist watch lists etc, so all good.

        Says that all these conspiracist people who’ve been selling state secrets under Clinton, if they say hey I don’t want to do this anymore they get told you signed up to this so if you don’t keep doing it you’re going to get cracked in the head with a barbell.

        David Petraeus openly joked to the audience at the Y last night about the J-31 specs being leaked to the Chinese from the F-35 program, so he’s involved.
        “Pompeo & everyone now know the jig is up”.
        Some Russian enforcement guy mentioned. Joked that if they want to take him out now, now’s the time.

        Says its not about him, it’s about bringing down the whole criminal network.

        Not just about a fun drug ratline, or child ratline, this is a murdering ratline, & its targeting US veterans with opioids – either legal or illegal … goes right back to Kissinger, duck soup(??-bj, any intel on that op?) and the Vietnam War – & all these other wars – it’s a continuation of that.

        The Generals, the military, the whole supply line is being forced to use compromised blackberries…his GSA sources have confirmed all the military contractors in the F-35 program “are going to be required to use that same blackberry” & “all of the contracts are going to dealt to Clinton Foundation donors”.

        The Philippines guys are now trying to back out of the ratline (?? – Bj, any other intel?) He says Petraeus is saying “because we hate China we have to attack the Philippines”? The whole North Korean thing is their last gasp. But these Deep State criminals are down to their last 3 cards – all they have now is a three card monte (?) – they’re just gonna try & do a shell game.

        Pleads for Debbie Wasserman to keep calling hearings in Congress, it’ll all be blown apart, the spies in Congress…

        Says following the blackberries & the 650k emails is gonna unlock the whole thing … all they need to do now is expose all the *metadata*. Fark this is heavy stuff, AC.

        I’ll have to vet & debrief the other 4 Day 221 videos later – I think I’m being watched again … need to lie down on the sofa until the *courier* guy leaves my letterbox.

          PS; Nothing mentioned about the organ harvesting ratline, so hopefully that’s now been hurriedly shut down in a panic?

          Aha! John Ashe – didn’t how he fitted in … it fits πŸ‘

          John William Ashe (20 August 1954 – 22 June 2016) was an Antiguan diplomat and politician. He was the President of the United Nations General Assembly at its 68th session, which ran September 2013 to September 2014. He was also President of the UNICEF Executive Board in 2012. He served as Permanent Representative to the United Nations in New York of Antigua and Barbuda between 1995 and 2004.

          Bribery charge in U.S. court
          On 6 October 2015, Ashe was arrested and charged,[12] along with five others, in a criminal complaint filed by federal prosecutors in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, reflecting an expansion of a probe into the dealings of Macau real estate developer Ng Lap Seng. The complaint accused Ashe of using “his official position to obtain for Ng potentially lucrative investments in Antigua” as part of an alleged broader scheme to funnel more than $1 million in bribes from Chinese sources to facilitate business dealings, particularly in real estate. He died while awaiting trial.

          Personal life and death
          Ashe was found dead at his home in Dobbs Ferry, New York on June 22, 2016. The Westchester County, New York medical examiner’s office reported that Ashe died of injuries (specifically, traumatic asphyxia, and laryngeal fractures) suffered when a barbell he was lifting from a bench dropped on his neck.
          Ashe was married to Anilla Cherian and had two children. He lived in Dobbs Ferry, New York. Wiki

              Absolutely AC. Now we can see why:

              George pulls all the threads together & indicates the whole political criminal network that’s been around for decades is now completely exposed – seems to be saying his job is done – the house of cards will come now crashing down any day now. 3:30 min

              George warns Podesta that if he or his kids come to harm Podesta’s artwork in Freeport Geneva is goneburgered. 2:36 min

              Gonna go & brief dad up @ the Rest Home now. If they come for me I’ll be gone. And if they track dad down & try to get out of him what I know, they’ll be totally stuffed because he won’t remember anything I say 5 minutes later. πŸ‘

    An attack currently underway at a Manila Hotel.

    Gunfire and Explosions have been heard after gunmen stormed the hotel.

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/06/01/reports-attack-philippines-hotel2/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

    Unknown at this stage who they are, but note there is a rise in ISIS in the South of the country, and the other day the Filipino Army went on the attack against them to re-take a town they had overrun.

    Another place has banned the burka and niqab, albeit temporarily.

    Valid reasons, and one of the reasons we in the west should not be so squeamish about banning them in public buildings / spaces, sadly though those that propose it are labelled racist and intolerant.

    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/iraq-army-mosul-ramadan-burqa-ban-isis-use-attacks-suicide-bomb-shooting-islamic-state-a7766461.html

    Interestingly though they are more than happy to have hoodies, balaclavas, and motor cycle helmets banned in some public buildings – what word is there to throw at them for the blatant discrimination?

    Theresa May has written for the Jewish News, Jeremy Corbyn has refused again.

    Anti Semitism in Labour is an issue that has risen again. After Corbyn’s interview on Woman’s Hour on Tuesday (he didn’t do well), Corbyn’s supporters abused the journalist who conducted the interview with anti-semitic tweets. Corbyn denounced the abuse, but has come under some criticism as his race and faith policy released that evening didn’t mention the Jewish link to Israel.

    Meanwhile a recent poll shows that support of Labour among the Jewish community has dropped to 13%, and whilst that is up from the previous poll for the Jewish Chronicle in May 2016 which had their support at 8.5%.

    ALJAZ TV LIVE : BREAKING NEWS: TRUMP PRESS CONFERENCE – US IS OUT OF PARIS ACCORD – withdrawing, will be re-negotiating for re-signing up when they have a better deal. His job is to put America first – other countries are screwing US for their own benefit, or words to that general effect …

  6. He personifies the cardigan wearing Marxist malcontent, whose favourite book is most likely “The ragged trousered philanthropist”. A true “old labour” throw back who embraces identity politics, would dearly love to nationalise everything. His apologist attitude to IRA and Palestinian terrorism is encapsulated in this quote:

    “The idea that an organisation that is dedicated towards the good of the Palestinian people, and bringing about long-term peace and social justice and political justice in the whole region, should be labelled as a terrorist organisation by the British government, is really a big, big historical mistake.”

    Articles from three sources, two of which are VERY left wing publications.

    • Supposed to be a reply to your piece above Missy on Corbyn’s anti-Semitism.

      • Missy

         /  June 2, 2017

        Ah, right. Sums up much of the attitude to minority groups really. See my response below about Corbyn in general and his attitude towards women, and the release of the race policy.

    • Missy

       /  June 2, 2017

      That pretty much sums him up, and also I have watched a few interviews with him, and I notice that his tone shifts slightly when talking to a female interviewer and he comes across very patronisingly and condescending.

      When he was interviewed on Good Morning Britain he was very chummy and easy going with Piers Morgan, but appeared to be a little more fatherly (for want of a better word) with his co-host Susannah Reid.

      I have very great concerns about his attitude to women, amongst other groups. Labours race policy sums up this view, they are condescending and arrogant, and I fear much of it appears to be filtered from the leader.

      James Cleverley, a Conservative MP, wrote a good article for the Guardian this morning on Labour’s race policy.

      https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/jun/01/labour-minorities-corbyn-tweet-black-minority-ethnic-bame

      • ” notice that his tone shifts slightly when talking to a female interviewer and he comes across very patronisingly and condescending. ”

        Without being patronising myself, wink, wink, that’s an age related thing among certain politicians. I hate it! He is particularly loathsome. As long as women know their place – I’ll lower my voice and say things slowly so they grasp it.

        Women know your place.

          Not patronising at all Trav, I think you may be on the money there! Definitely age related, though he is older than Theresa May he likes to act like he is about 30 years younger.

          On the age thing, ironically one of his policies is not to raise the retirement age so (in his words) ‘people don’t have to work until they are 68’, pity he didn’t take that advice.

    • Cannot stomach that man’s social values, but he knows a thing or two about money.

      “After the financial crisis of 2008, the eurozone was transformed into a creditor/debtor relationship where the debtor countries couldn’t meet their obligations and the creditor countries dictated the terms”. That’s the truth.

    ALJAZ TV – BREAKING: Aljaz reports the US Supreme Court has said it will rule on whether to reinstate Trump’s “Muslim Travel Ban”. Nothing else available online yet. Details awaited … in case it’s fake gnus.
