Theresa May, ‘zombie PM’ appoints anti-Brexit, pro-immigration chief of staff

Theresa May is looking to be Britain's new zombie Prime Minister. May has made the worst possible choice by appointing Gavin Barwell as her chief of staff, following the departure of her two main advisers Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill.

    Well over 80 percent of General Election voters voted for Britain to leave the European Union, but Barwell is a Remainer.

    Although he lost his Croydon Central seat at the election, Barwell has now effectively been promoted for holding a view that the vast majority of British voters do not share.

    The appointment is a slap in the face for those who believe in Brexit Britain. Barwell wanted the UK to Remain inside the European Union and has branded Nigel Farage a “racist” who “hates modern Britain” in the run up to the EU referendum. Barwell is openly pro-immigration.

    Nigel Farage told blogger Westmonster: “This is the worst possible start. Gavin Barwell is a staunch Remainer who abuses those who want to control immigration.” Barwell is the co-chair of Migration Matters, who campaigned to have more Indians coming to Britian.

    Martin Selmayr, senior aide to European Commission President Jean Claude-Juncker, tweeted that the resignations of Timothy and Hill was like the sacrifice of a pawn in the game of chess, using the word “bauernopfer”.The word translates in English as “sacrifice of a pawn”.

    The driving force behind the Leave vote, Farage, has confirmed that he was considering returning once again as the Leader of UKIP after Paul Nuttall resigned in the wake of his poor election results. UKIP lost their only seat.

    Farage said, writing in the The Telegraph, that he was “pondering” whether to stand, weighing up the huge internal reform that the party required.

    He said Leave voters would be “furious” if the UK does not leave the single market and the customs union as is now being hinted, arguing that Theresa May’s hash of an election campaign may have “imperilled” Brexit.

    On Sky News, British television host Sophie Ridge, incredibly invited only guests that want the UK to remain as part of the EU, on her programme Sophie Ridge on Sunday, despite the fact that an overwhelming majority of voters do not want to be part of the EU.

    Jeremy Corbyn is ready to get rid of Theresa May within a matter of days, he says. He is planning to use the Queen’s Speech as his first opportunity to topple May.

    In an exclusive interview with the Sunday Mirror, Corbyn said it was time for May to wake up and smell the coffee.

    The Labour leader says: “I can still be Prime Minister. This is still on. Absolutely. Theresa May has been to the Palace. She’s attempting to form a government.” But Corbyn believes there is enough opposition in the rest of the House – on May’s own backbenches – to defeat the Government.

    That could trigger another election as the Tories would face a confidence challenge, he believes. May fell eight seats short of a House of Commons majority and she will now be reliant on the 10 seats of the the Democratic Unionist party (DUP) to add to the 318 Tories in order to get the 326 seats needed to pass legislation.

    Downing Street 10 announced that DUP deal had been reached, but was then forced to backtrack after the said negotiations were still continuing.

    DUP’s position against gay rights, abortion and climate change is “toxic” to liberal Tories, but May is fighting to keep the job she won less than a year ago.

    Nicky Morgan, an education secretary under David Cameron, told the Guardian: “As a former minister for women and equalities, any notion that the price for a deal with the DUP is to water down our equalities policies is a non-starter.”

    Ruth Davidson, the lesbian Scottish Tory leader, has expressed concern over the impact of a DUP deal on gay rights.

    Davidson, who has basically saved Theresa May by winning 13 seats north of the border on Thursday, had reportedly told May earlier to “stay away” from Scotland while campaigning.

    A senior party insider told the Sunday Express: “She [Davidson] just wanted the money to fund the campaign but otherwise wanted to be left alone to get on with it without interference. She also ordered Mrs May to stay away from Scotland and focus her campaigning efforts on other parts of the UK.

    “The strategy clearly appears to have worked. It’s ironic that by keeping Theresa May at bay she has saved her from complete electoral defeat and saved the Union at the same time by weakening SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon and her bid for a second independence referendum.”

    Davidson’s 13 new Scottish Tory MPs is keeping Jeremy Corbyn out of Downing Street for the moment. Davidson is also a tepid Brexiter: “I want to ensure that we can look again at issues like Brexit which we know we are now going to have to get cross-party support for. And move to a consensus within the country about what it means and what we seek to achieve as we leave.”

    May’s position in her own party is under threat. In a devastating snap poll of Tory members by ConservativeHome, some 60 percent of party members wanted May to resign and trigger a leadership election. Out of the 1 500 who took part in the survey, only 37 percent said she should stay on as premier.

    Many voters held the struggling Prime Minister accountable for the recent spate of jihadist attacks. While May was Home Secretary, between September 2010 and September 2016 police numbers in England and Wales fell by 18 991. The number of firearms officers also fell from 6 976 in March 2010 to 5 639 in March 2016.

    Former Tory MP Stewart Jackson, called his party’s manifesto “electoral poison”. On BBC Radio 5 Live, he said it was “shockingly bad…lacking passion, it was bland, it lacked vision…above everything else a real lost opportunity. Our manifesto was all about what we’ll stop them having and what we’ll not give them and what’s good for them and that’s frankly electoral poison and a complete disaster.”

    DESTRUCTIVE HAILSTORMS will become more frequent and violent with increasingly larger hail, predicted solar researcher Valentina Zharkova back in 2019 when she stated that it's one of many signs of an impending Grand Solar Minimum. This is exactly what we have witnessed this year in both Europe and the world. Here is the German town of Benediktbeuern in Bavaria after a hailstorm on August 26th. Almost all rooftops and cars were damaged. The centuries-old church and monastery were damaged for the first time ever. Interestingly, the monastery was rebuilt in 1699 during the Maunder Minimum. Combined with heavy rainfall, extreme weather will devastate a significant portion of our food production. For instance, heavy rainfall destroyed a quarter of all crops in Greece in just two days in September. However, mainstream media remains silent. Photo: X @safe0007/Sandor Feher

    NOAA Predicts Zero Sunspots for Almost the Whole 2030s

    CLIMATEThe United States' government scientific organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predicts zero sunspots from 2031 to 2040. This is an extreme situation that has not occurred in as long as humanity has been counting sunspots, and it leads us into uncharted territory in terms of our solar system. However, this prediction aligns with the warnings of the world-renowned solar researcher Valentina Zharkova for many years, who indicated in 2019 various signs of this catastrophic phenomenon, including the extreme hailstorms we have seen in Europe and the world this summer. The forecast and various observations this year give cause for very significant concern. In this unique analysis, Free West Media explains why.

    NATIONALIST COLLABORATION TAKES SHAPE. Six parties met in Budapest on August 26th to sign a joint declaration confirming the friendship and political unity among the parties. The goal is to either form a new group in the European Parliament after the EU elections in June next year or to reconstitute the existing Identity and Democracy (ID) group with the new parties.

    European Nationalist Parties Forge Cooperation Ahead of EU Elections

    EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.

    Turkey Believes Sweden Hasn’t Done Enough

    Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.

    Swedish Weapon Takes Down Russia’s Best Attack Helicopter

    The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.

    Alternative for Germany held its conference during the last weekend of July in the thousand-year-old city of Magdeburg, located by the Elbe River in the eastern German state of Saxony. The first of the two conference days began with a strong program speech by the party's male spokesperson. Subsequently, party officials were elected and motions were addressed. The second day was entirely devoted to candidate selection and positioning for the EU election in June next year. Screenshot: AfD on Facebook

    Strong Confidence in German AfD

    Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.

    Maximilian Krah is one of the AfD politicians who is singled out as an ethnonationalist, as he has stated that there is a distinction between ethnic Germans and immigrants who have obtained German citizenship. Krah is a Member of the European Parliament and AfD's top candidate for the upcoming European Union election next year. Still image: AfD on Facebook

    The Establishment Wants to Ban Germany’s Second Largest Party – for the Sake of Democracy

    The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."

    FvD was quick to support the protests against covid restrictions. Today, the party also stands behind the farmers protests against the governments’ plans to close a big portion of the farms in the country for the sake of “climate”. The picture is from a protest against covid restrictions in Amsterdam in January of last year. Photo: Wion

    Publisher of Unique Literature Worldwide Blocked by International Distributor

    Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
