  1. Trump Approval Pops to 55%,the people like the guy Rasmussen Daily Presidential Tracking Poll 16/2/17 'The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 55% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-five percent (45%) disapprove. The latest figures include 38% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 36% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of +2. (see trends). Questions are growing about the source of top-secret information leaked to the media to hurt the Trump administration. A plurality (47%) of voters believe America’s intelligence agencies have their own political agenda. Nearly half (48%) also believe most reporters are biased against the president. Only 12% think they are biased for Trump, while 31% feel most reporters try to be fair and balanced. Needless to say, Republicans and Democrats strongly disagree in their assessments of the media. While the president’s refugee freeze is tied up in the courts, the State Department has sped up acceptance of newcomers from the Middle Eastern terrorist havens targeted by the freeze. Most voters think that’s making America less safe. How aggressively do voters want to deport those who overstay their visas here. We’ll tell you at 10:30. Most voters support Trump’s plan to halt refugees and visas from certain countries until these newcomers can be properly vetted to screen out potential terrorists.' Despite all the negative publicity over Flynn and all the heat Trump is getting in the press,here's proof that he's popular.To some Trump has committed a cardinal sin by getting power and then try to deliver what he promised on the campaign trail.The majority currently see it a different way. Every time I see him on TV dishing it out to the MSM and the 'liberals who in reality aren't anywhere near as liberal as they think',it lifts my spirits.

(NovaGold) is a precious metals company engaged in the exploration and development of mineral properties in North America. The Company has a portfolio of mineral properties located in Alaska, the United States and British Columbia,' I know it's one consideration of many,but I'll be adding to the list gradually. Parameters?I'm thinking.
  3. https://www.stratfor.com/analysis/referendum-puts-italys-government-test 'Eight Italian banks risk collapse in the coming months if the nation votes "no" to, or against, constitutional changes proposed by Prime Minister Matteo Renzi in Sunday's nationwide referendum. The proposed changes would reduce the role of the senate and transfer power to the central government from the regions, Reuters reports. If "no" wins in next Sunday's referendum — most polls put it about 6 percentage points ahead of the "yes" camp — market turmoil and turbulence should follow, according to officials and senior bankers cited by the Financial Times on Sunday. The world's oldest bank, Monte dei Paschi di Siena, along with Popolare di Vicenza, Veneto Banca, Carige, Banca Etruria, CariChieti, Banca delle Marche, and CariFerrara could all end up at risk if market turbulence prevails. Market turbulence will stem from the likely resignation of Renzi as prime minister if he loses the vote. It is unclear whether Renzi will stand down, as he has repeatedly changed his stance in the lead-up to the referendum. Based on the assumption that Renzi does step down, Italy will enter a period of great uncertainty as it tries to form a transitional government and find a new prime minister. Markets hate uncertainty, meaning turbulence in Italian equities, bonds, and other asset classes is almost certain to follow. This, in turn, will make it less likely that investors will want to help recapitalise Italy's risky banks, those cited by the Financial Times argue. "Senior bankers and officials said that the worst-case scenario was where a failure of Monte Paschi's complex €5bn recapitalisation and bad-debt restructuring demanded by regulators would translate into a wider failure of confidence in Italy and imperil a market solution for its ailing banks," the FT says. The country's financial sector is plagued by a surfeit of bad loans so great that in April the government was forced to rally bank executives, insurers, and investors into putting €5 billion (£4.2 billion, $5.57 billion) behind a rescue fund for its weakest banks. The Atalante fund is designed to buy so-called bad loans from lenders and invest in their shares in the hope that the re-energized banks will lend more to businesses and spur growth. Monte dei Paschi di Siena is the worst affected, and at one point this year it held bad loans equivalent to almost 50 times its market capitalisation. The bank managed to agree to a rescue package involving the likes of JPMorgan, Deutsche Bank, and HSBC at the end of July. That package and other recapitalisations could be at risk after a vote no. "The capital increases of Italian banks due to be announced right after the referendum may become even trickier than currently perceived in the case of a 'No' vote," Lorenzo Codogno, the former chief economist of Italy's Treasury, told the FT. Worries in the markets about the Italian banking sector are pretty clear Monday morning, with shares in the country's lenders tumbling. Here's how UniCredit, Italy's only globally systemically important bank, looks so far:'
  4. Voters sided with Orbán by voting against the admission of refugees into Hungary, but... https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/oct/02/hungarian-vote-on-refugees-will-not-take-place-suggest-first-poll-results 'The Hungarian prime minister, Viktor Orbán, has failed to convince a majority of his population to vote in a referendum on closing the door to refugees, rendering the result invalid and undermining his campaign for a cultural counter-revolution within the European Union. More than 98% of participants in Sunday’s referendum sided with Orbán by voting against the admission of refugees to Hungary, allowing him to claim an “outstanding” victory. But more than half of the electorate stayed at home, rendering the process constitutionally null and void. Early results suggested that about 43.9% of the Hungarian electorate participated, significantly less than the 50% threshold needed to validate the referendum.' Funny how this has been spun,Result invalid because less than 50% voted.However,given how many people voted with orban,it would have taken a turnout of 80% for him to lose. They are losing control,whoever they are.
  5. 'GERMAN premier Angela Merkel called for a ban on the Burka https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/2339873/german-leader-angela-merkel-says-full-veil-is-not-appropriate-here-in-astonishing-u-turn/ 'GERMAN premier Angela Merkel called for a ban on the Burka for the first time as she launched a bid to remain in power with a dramatic shift. Sparking a standing ovation from her CDU Party, the German Chancellor threw her weight behind calls to outlaw the burqa and niqab wherever “possible”.' Personally,I think she's a troughing politician,grasping for the liferaft.Apparently,she regularly gets polls done so there must be some move of late to the AFD.
  6. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/feb/15/martin-schulz-signal-german-left-dreams-of-a-european-antidote-to-trump 'If things go Johanna Uekermann’s way, she will wake up on 25 September to the news that Martin Schulz has soundly beaten Angela Merkel in the German elections. “The era of Europe-wide austerity policies à la Merkel and [Wolfgang Schäuble, Germany’s finance minister] could finally become a thing of the past,” said the 29-year-old leader of the JuSos, the Social Democratic party’s (SPD) youth organisation. For the second week running, a poll published on Wednesday by Germany’s Forsa institute put the SPD on a five-year high with 31% of the vote, just three percentage points behind Merkel’s Christian Democrats. Another survey, also by Forsa, found that in a theoretical direct vote for the chancellorship, Schulz would win 37% of the vote to Merkel’s 38%. Another poll published last week saw Schulz’s party overtake the conservatives to become the strongest political force in the country. The emergence of a US president openly critical of German economic and social policies has led some to call for a more combative stance towards Donald Trump’s government than the course of critical distance pursued by Merkel. In an interview in the new edition of Der Spiegel, Schulz described Trump as a “profound” threat to democratic values who was “gambling with the security of the western world”. Asked how he would deal with Trump as Germany’s chancellor, Schulz responded by praising Germany’s liberal constitution. “As the leader of such a country I have to pursue a combative approach to all those that question this free, open and tolerant model of a society,” he said. But many, even on the German left, view their current high with suspicion. If there was a broad leftwing majority at the 2013 German elections, when the SPD, Greens and Left party collectively gained 42.7% of the vote, that majority has crumbled just as the centre-left and far-left parties have taken first steps to overcome their historic animosity.' http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/02/15/russias-newest-target-is-german-chancellor-angela-merkel.html 'Russia's newest target is German Chancellor Angela Merkel German Chancellor Angela Merkel, a major defender of Western democratic values in Europe, has become the target of a Russian campaign to derail her bid for re-election this year. Merkel is up for re-election in September for her fourth term. Russian media is mounting a fierce campaign to defeat Merkel because it apparently sees her as a threat. “The main aim of the Russians is to get rid of Angela Merkel, who is making the last stand in Europe to maintain the sanctions against Russia for its seizure of Crimea, and because of its war in Ukraine,” said Richard Herzinger, an opinion writer for the German conservative newspaper, Die Welt. Germany's spy agencies, however, have not found any proof that Russia is meddling with the German presidential election.' Besieged from left and right,she's still favourite.
  7. Yeah but it's not fake news if it comes from the Guardian or the BBC Doc. Check out this funny piece from Guido Fawkes https://order-order.com/2017/11/02/bbc-home-of-despitebrexit/
  8. Styx as ever,nails it. Dems are in real trouble.Not sure why they're still giving Shillary the time of day.
  9. It's amazing to hear people saying that US immigration had no role in the attack.Styx handles it well rationally as ever.
  10. Trump has been consistent on this matter. I suspect when it comes to risking their money,all these athletes will start standing again.
  11. BBC TV reporting hte 'silent ''majority'' turned up in Bacelona to march to stay in Spain. Nice unbiased selection of words. Same silent majoirty that voted against Brecit I suppose.
  12. Austria,Poland,Slovakia and Czech govts hard right / EU in trouble http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/867726/Austria-election-EU-Visegrad-group-Sebastian-Kurz-FPO 'Now reports in the Polish press suggest the FPO could insist Austria joins the Visegrad group, a four-nation alliance of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia that is opposed to immigration, as a condition of forming a coalition. The Visegrad leaders have previously refused migrant quotas approved by a western-dominated majority of European Union member states. And they also reject proposed EU reforms that would transfer more power from national governments to Brussels institutions. Joining the alliance was supported by the FPO in its election campaign.' EU going to struggle now imposing Merkel's immigration policies on everyone else. Just when the EU and the SJW's thought they'd seen the people off with Macron's win,it suddenly dawns that they still ahve a problem.The people are waking up.
  13. The people are rising. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/oct/22/anti-establishment-billionaire-andrej-babis-to-be-named-czech-pm 'Babiš led his new party ANO – “ano” is Czech for “yes” – to a resounding poll victory, winning almost 30% of the vote. The election ended a quarter of a century of political dominance by the traditional parties of the Czech mainstream, with the Social and Christian Democrats scoring just 7% and 6% respectively. Voters largely turned their backs on liberal pro-European parties, with the centre-right Civic Democrats winning 11% of the vote, the direct democracy advocates of the Pirate party 10.6% and the far-right, anti–EU SPD 10.8%. Unusually for such a populist politician, his victory comes not at a time of economic downturn in the Czech economy but at a moment when the country of 10.6 million people is enjoying strong growth, robust wage increases and low levels of unemployment. In recent years many Czechs have been far from confident in their country’s economic stability, however, and have come to resent immigration and what they see as cronyism in government and the legal system.'
  14. Strange,I agree I came on here to post a Breitbart piece and found the thread running already.I missed it the other day.But there's a lot going on with the social justice warrior class at the minute with Weinstein and all. It's just quite unbelievable what Shillary has been up to...........................not sure how she manages to look down her nose at Trump.These people are deluded http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/10/23/7-uranium-one-facts-every-american-should-know/
  15. http://www.breitbart.com/london/2017/10/21/eurosceptic-czech-trump-ahead-early-count-national-election-anti-migration-freedom-party-second/ ' With over 99 per cent of the vote counted, the party of the populist Czech billionaire described by some as the ‘Czech Trump’ has achieved a considerable victory in the national legislative elections — with the mainstream left Social Democrat party achieving their worst result in national history.With an estimated fortune of over four billion, ANO [YES] party leader Andrej Babis is even wealthier than U.S. president Donald Trump, and has used his wealth since the 2011 founding of his party in a crusade to change Czech politics. Originally founded to oppose government corruption, the party has since come to oppose the Euro currency, European Union federalism, and mass migration. Businessman Babis was finance minister of the Czech Republic from January 2014 to May 2017, but this election could see him returned as the leader of the largest party and not needing the support of the Social Democrat party he served under. UPDATE: 1900 CET advertisement The count for this remarkable election is now all but complete, with Czech billionaire and populist leader Andrej Babis leading a party commanding 29.66 per cent of the vote — a significant proportion given the largest party in the last election in 2013 only achieved 20.45 per cent of the vote. That same Social Democrat party — known as the orange party in Czechia for their corporate colour scheme — has this time recorded their worst ever result, reports Czech newspaper Lidovky, at just 7.7 per cent, putting them in sixth. Ahead now of that former giant of Czech politics are the liberal-conservative Civic Democratic Party in second with 11.31 per cent. Behind them in third are the left-liberal Pirate Party at 10.78 per cent, and the anti-Islamification, anti-mass migration and Eurosceptic Freedom and Direct Democracy party, who have achieved above expectations to come fourth with 10.64 per cent. The original story continues below: Czechia: Centre-right STAN (EPP) 0.1% above threshold (73.4% counted). #volby #volby2017 pic.twitter.com/BLGm2ya2kc — Europe Elects (@EuropeElects) October 21, 2017 The Czech Statistics Office said ANO has received around 30 per cent of the vote after ballots from 80 perc ent of the polling stations have been counted. The Czech Republic’s most radical anti-Islam, anti-migration, anti-EU party, Freedom and Direct Democracy, is in second with 11 percent of the vote so far. If this figure is confirmed it would put the anti mass-migration party well ahead of recent polls which have put them consistently below the 10 per cent mark, and at times even lower than five per cent. Trailing in third are the Communists, with 9.5 percent of the vote.'
  16. Some of the comments on the twitter feeds claiing it's only because the teams are 0-7..... Even so....quite a counter protest.
  17. http://www.breitbart.com/london/2017/10/20/austria-25-per-cent-rise-sex-attacks-half-committed-migrants/ ' The Austrian government has released new crime statistics that show sex attacks have risen by more than 25 per cent since last year and that migrants make up close to half of all known suspects in sex crime cases. The Austrian Interior Ministry released the figures this week which show that between 2015 and 2016, during the height of the migrant crisis, sex crimes went up 26.18 per cent. The reports also show a disproportionate number of suspects to be of a foreign origin and that Afghan nationals are particularly overrepresented, Kronen Zeitung reports. The ministry said there were 5,253 sexual offences in 2016, up from the previous year’s number of 4,163. In cases of rape, individuals of a foreign background make up a disproportionate number of rape suspects representing 44.3 per cent of all suspects in 2016. In cases of sexual harassment, foreigners made up 43 per cent of suspects. In context, the migrant population of Austria is estimated to be between 10 and 15 per cent. Afghan nationals make up the largest segment of sex attackers among foreign suspects followed by Romanians, Germans, Serbs, and Turks. The report comes after another report from earlier this year from Interior Minister Wolfgang Sobotka who noted that migrant sex offences had increased by a massive 133 per cent in the span of only a year. The Interior Ministry also noted that individuals of foreign backgrounds were also responsible for around 51 per cent of all the thefts in the country. Austria is not the only country in which migrants commit a disproportionate amount of crime compared to their share of the overall population. In Germany, their Interior Ministry released a report last year showing migrants being overrepresented in almost all forms of crime.' Berlin Senate To Investigate Why Migrant Crime Stats So High https://t.co/2zMpx4J7Lk pic.twitter.com/SoUYtJtnO1 — Breitbart London (@BreitbartLondon) February 5, 2017 The issue has become such a problem in cities like Berlin that the Berlin Senate launched an investigation after reports emerged that almost half of the crime in the German capital was being committed by migrants.
  18. NO GO Areas : "... Swedish law no longer applies... " http://www.breitbart.com/london/2017/10/20/swedish-politicians-propose-deploying-military-no-go-zones/ ' Twenty members of the Moderate Party in Sweden have proposed the government deploys the armed forces in some of the country’s most dangerous no-go zones to combat “gang violence”. Moderate Party politician Mikael Cederbratt made the proposal this week saying: “The situation in our areas of exclusion has deteriorated. The gangs have taken over and the police have had to retreat. Swedish law no longer applies there.” Cederbratt was backed up by 19 other Moderate party members who signed a motion to deploy members of the Swedish armed forces in the heavily migrant populated Stockholm suburbs of Hallunda-Norsborg, Tensta, Rinkeby, and Husby Botkyrka Direct reports. “It is absolutely necessary to do something, because these gangs are like cancerous tumours in our country, and it is urgent. My absolute belief is that we, the nation of Sweden, must declare war on criminal gangs,” Cederbratt said. “It is the responsibility of the state to maintain the law, especially the police. But the police today do not have the numerical ability to maintain public order,” he added. In certain no-go zones, police have been brutally attacked, some of which has even been caught on video. In Rinkeby, police have been trying to build a new, more secure police station for months but have been unable to find building contractors due to the danger of working in the area. 80 Per Cent Of Swedish Police Consider Quitting Over Migrant Danger https://t.co/uaaXWiAnlP pic.twitter.com/iazilLjWMW — Breitbart London (@BreitbartLondon) September 20, 2016 Cederbratt said that the military could take on police functions in the areas. “For example, a police bus and a night in Norsborg could be manned by four to five soldiers led by a police inspector,” he said. “Military police are perfect. We also have a group of UN military unions who have learned this kind of work in very difficult situations abroad. If they receive supplementary education, they can work very well under the guidance of a police officer in Sweden.” The situation for Swedish police has become dire with Swedish National Police Commissioner Dan Eliasson begging for help from the government earlier this year. The threats to the police have also begun to increase after a police station was bombed earlier this week in Helsingborg with authorities refusing to rule out 'potential terrorist links.
  19. http://boston.cbslocal.com/2017/10/19/nfl-tv-ratings-decline-owners-meeting/ 'BOSTON (CBS) — For most of the 2016 season, the NFL largely blamed the U.S. presidential election for a decline in TV ratings. But with the league’s numbers down another 7.5 percent so far in 2017, amid a growing backlash to players’ national anthem protests, the owners are finally taking the ratings decline seriously. Nielsen reported earlier this week that the NFL’s TV ratings were down by 7.5 percent compared to the first six weeks of the 2016 season. But numbers reported to the owners at the meeting were even more alarming. Twenty-five of 31 NFL teams (excluding the Chargers) are experiencing local declines in ratings, including an 8 percent drop for the Patriots, 7 percent for the Cowboys, and 6 percent for the Steelers. Only the Chiefs, Buccaneers, and Lions are up by more than 5 percent.'

Over the first six weeks, NFL ratings are down 7.5 percent as compared to last season, per Nielsen. They're down 18.7 percent from the 2015 season. (Commenting last year on the decline, Goodell punted, blaming the presidential election for America's fading interest.)'
  21. Ienjoyed the Larry Sabato interview but it wasn't an industry wide failure,there were lot's of pollsters calling a Trump lead.CBS jsut chose not to report them.
  22. These players thought they were attacking Trump but actually they were attacking his voters-who happen to pay their wages.
