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.
Proud that my home town and the great city of which it is part rejected the politics of hate and division yesterday

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.”

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.
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.
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.
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.
Top Researchers Push Back Against Climate Lies."The correlation is as clear as day," explained the Israeli astrophysicist Nir Shaviv, who was hailed by the establishment, before his interview with Forbes was hastily deleted. What he says contradicts the climate narrative, which points to humans as responsible for Earth's climate. Shaviv firmly asserts that it is the sun that controls the climate, something that can be scientifically proven in many ways. Contrary to the popular belief, the sun's influence on Earth has, in recent years, caused unusually cold and rainy weather, a trend that solar researchers warn will worsen significantly in the coming decades. The sun has exhibited an unusually low activity since 2016, during Solar Cycle 24, which was the weakest in a century.
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.
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."

After a criminal complaint in Belgium against the President of the European Commission, the so-called SMS-case, now takes a new turn. The judge responsible for the investigation will likely gain access to the secret messages exchanged between Ursula von der Leyen and Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, at least if they haven't been deleted.
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.
