    It's been a dreadful, torrid month for UK PM Theresa May whose cabinet has been on the rocks ever since her revised Brexit proposal was revealed, barely scraping by with just a 3 vote margin last week, amid an exodus of key Brexit voices and a scathing Donald Trump interview. And it's about to get even worse because according to a new poll, May’s plans to leave the European Union are overwhelmingly opposed by the British public. Worse, more than a third of voters would support a new right-wing political party committed to quitting the bloc and headed by, guess who, Nigel Farage. According to the YouGov poll conducted for the Sunday Times, voters would prefer Boris Johnson, who quit as her foreign minister two weeks ago, to negotiate with the EU and lead the Conservative Party into the next election. And in the latest disaster for May, only 16% of voters say the Prime Minister is handling the Brexit negotiations well, compared with 34% who say that Johnson would do a better job. Only one in 10 voters would pick the government’s proposed Brexit plans if there were a second referendum, according to the poll, while almost half think it would be bad for Britain. But while the poll is a damning testament to her policies, May faces far greater challenges in the near-term. Her revised plan to keep a close trading relationship with the EU thrust her government into crisis this month and there is speculation she could face a leadership challenge after her most senior ministers, Davis and Johnson, resigned in protest. But in what may be the best news for libertarians, and those disenchanted with the legacy two-party system in the UK as well as everywhere else, the poll found voters are increasingly polarized, with growing numbers of people alienated from the two main political parties. Meanwhile, as in recent polls, half of voters would support remaining in the EU if there were a second referendum, the poll found. Which of course, means a Brexit is guaranteed - again - as polls prior to the first Brexit vote predicted an avalanche victory for Remain. But here is the real shocker. 38% of respondents said they would vote for a new right-wing party that is committed to Brexit, while almost a quarter would support an explicitly far-right anti-immigrant, anti-Islam party, the poll found. According to the Sunday Times, Brexit veteran Nigel Farage, who has vowed to return to politics if May's "Brexit betrayal is not reversed", and Steve Bannon are in discussions about forming a new right-wing movement. So, one wonders, how long before Europe's relentless populist wave means that this person is the UK's next prime minister?

    No lands were stolen and if any were they were stolen from other peoples than those taking them from the Boers now. One way or another it is not our business, we have to deal with whoever controls the land now and we shouldn't be involved in trying to change who that is.

    The US could have kept Germany and Japan, it would have been a bad idea but we could have. You purposely avoid discussing most of America that was taken from the Injuns and Mexico because we did keep that and anybody could see how unreasonable it would be to demand that it be returned. The fact is that there is hardly a square foot of ground on planet earth that wasn't taken by its current holders in a war with its former owners. More important yet is the fact that it is not our place to judge Israel's ownership, we have to deal with it because it is, if their neighbors don't like it they can take the land back through war, if they were to try we should stay out of it.

    Please point out one post where anyone says Israel has a right to bomb Syria. Your obsessive opposition to Israel is rather odd considering you give the same excuse that they use about Judea for Blacks taking S. Africa from the Boers.

    On a day that's already witnessed significant developments along the Syrian-Israeli Golan border region after an overnight evacuation of hundreds of White Helmets members and their families by Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), Israeli jets have reportedly carried out a major airstrike on a Syrian government facility in northwest Syria in Hama province. Map source: Haaretz Syrian state SANA news has confirmed what it's calling an "Israeli aggression" near the city of Masyaf, indicating the "losses are only material", while early reports in both regional social media and in official Israeli media sources allege the site is a facility for the production and storage of chemical weapons. The Times of Israel reports that the targeted building is associated with Syria's well-known Scientific Studies and Research Center (or also commonly CERS) near Masyaf.

Magnier, reporting for Middle East-based Al Rai media, further notes that Israeli jets once again fired from above "neutral" Lebanese airspace over the Bekaa Valley, unleashing a volley of three missiles. Other sources say as many of ten missiles may have been fired, with up to six striking the Syrian government complex, with others possibly intercepted by Syrian air defenses.

    Former Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper admitted in a CNN interview Saturday that former President Obama instigated the ongoing investigations into Donald Trump and those in his orbit. Speaking with CNN's Anderson Cooper, Clapper let slip: If it weren’t for President Obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today including Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation. President Obama is responsible for that. It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place.

    Britain’s slow move away from the European Union took a new twist Sunday as the new Brexit chief suggested that Britain might not pay its $51 billion divorce bill if no trade agreement with the European Union is reached. Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab told the Sunday Telegraph that there must be “conditionality” between Britain making the hefty exit payment and its ability to create a new relationship with the EU. “You can’t have one side fulfilling its side of the bargain and the other side not, or going slow, or failing to commit on its side,” he said, implying that the threat of withholding payment might get Brexit talks back on track. Britain and the EU remain far apart on terms of a new trade setup. British Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservative Party is also deeply split over what Brexit policy to support. Raab replaced David Davis, who resigned two weeks ago to protest May’s “soft” Brexit plan. May has faced a substantial rebellion from party colleagues who favor a complete break with the EU — a so-called “hard” Brexit — rather than May’s proposal, which calls for a “common rule book” with European nations that would govern trade in goods. EU negotiator Michel Barnier is also lukewarm on May’s latest proposal, asking many questions about its viability Friday. Raab, however, says he is still hopeful a deal can be concluded by October so the EU parliament and national parliaments of EU nations can ratify the deal before Britain leaves in March. “Actually the fact Michel Barnier is not blowing it out the water but asking questions is a good positive sign — that’s what we negotiate on,” Raab said, looking forward to more Brexit discussions Thursday in Brussels.

    New York is apparently no longer the big cheese. The Second City has been dubbed the "rat capital" of America according to apartment search service RentHop, which said Chicago had the highest amount of rat-related complaints of four major U.S. cities. The data compiled by the website showed that there were more than 50,000 rat-related complaints in 2017, which is a 55 percent increase since 2014. "The abundance of garbage and buildings in The Windy City makes it a great location for these rats to seek shelter and food for survival," according to RentHop. "The presence of these furry critters poses a threat to city dwellers due to the fact that they are capable of spreading diseases and cause allergic reactions to humans and animals." The worst neighborhoods in the Windy City were Logan Square, Englewood and West Ridge. "Most of the neighborhoods with a higher concentration of rat complaints coincide with the neighborhoods with a higher concentration of dog poop," according to the website. Tourists visiting Chicago may avoid watching the scurrying pests, as neighborhoods in the downtown area such as The Loop, Gold Coast and River North logged fewer complaints.

    Rand would be the best available option and I would vote for him. I don't think he is going to run against Trump though, I wish he would but I think that he doesn't think he would win and that he would rather keep Trump listening to his advice. If someone else better than Trump runs against him I would prefer to vote for them as well, Trump needs to be pressured towards noninterventionism even if he wins again.

    This is why we must not only throw out the illegals but also have an immigration freeze and reboot the immigration system with much lower limits. Even that is not enough though, we must expel deep blue states from the union in order to kneecap the treasonous political machine that is attempting to turn us into a communist country.

    People have a right to free speech without government consequences but not a right to say repugnant things without cultural consequences. Other people have a right to refuse to deal with scumbags, if some segment of society becomes so deranged that it treats normal people like scumbags then you have a culture war but that is one of the risks of freedom. This just serves as a reminder that culture matters.

    Sure it does. The folks with solid red deserve it. If you can point me to one who doesn't, then I'll try to help them out.
