Chelsea Balls: Calling Jose Mourinho A ‘Racist’ Is Stupid

england squad Chelsea Balls: Calling Jose Mourinho A Racist Is Stupid

 

RACISM is such a big issue, you wouldn’t think a national newspaper who use it as a cheap way to score hits, would you? So. When we read in the Daily Express of a Jose ‘Mourinho Race Row”, we’re intrigued. Can the Chelsea boss have erred?

Football is used as a cipher for all society’s ill, so maybe he’s it is just a lot of shouting about very little.

The Express‘ story is a link to a story in the Daily Star, it’s sister publication that once supported the EDL.

Witchcraft In The UK And African Churches: Children Are Murdered When Exorcism Fails

THE Sun has an interesting story on witchcraft in the UK:

HUNDREDS of British tots are victims of ritual abuse by parents convinced their child is possessed, police said yesterday. The Sun told on Tuesday how people in South London performed a 4am exorcism on a toddler.

In another case outlined at the Met’s Witchcraft and Spirit Possession event, a youngster was starved, beaten and caged as the parents feared evil spirits would jump from the child. One victim told how her aunt force-fed her for being a witch.

Grim.

And not at all far-fetched.

In 2010, Uganda’s Minister for Ethics and Integrity James Buturo appealed for help. The report:

He appealed to religious leaders regardless of the difference in faith to spearhead the campaigns to wipeout witchcraft and homosexuality in the country.

 

PA 1527996 Witchcraft In The UK And African Churches: Children Are Murdered When Exorcism Fails

Exhibits Officer DC Mark Ham holds up a pair of children’s shorts during a press conference at New Scotland Yard in central London. Police believe the shorts, which were found in the river Thames, may be connected to the murder of a young boy. * … whose torso was found in the Thames near London Bridge. A world expert in African ritualistic murder was travelling to Britain to join the hunt for the killer of a boy whose torso was found in a river. Detectives hope forensic pathologist Dr Hendrik Scholtz will be able to shed new light on the death of the five-year-old, whose severed body was discovered floating in the Thames. Officers believe the boy could be the first person in the UK to die in a “muti killing of a kind known to have been practised in South Africa”. The killings are done by witch doctors who use the victim’s body parts for black magic potions. Detectives fear the youngster, believed to have been between four and seven, was brought to London and killed as a human sacrifice. Date: 25/01/2002

Todd Graham writes:

This lost classic short film of 1990 is a post reunification Nihilist allegory of the tensions between the immigrant worker population of Germany and the natives who still long for Heimat. When foreign bullies cajole a young German man into trying to kick an American football. Hilarity ensues.

We all hate you, Charlie Brown!

Brenda Leyland: The McCanns, A Scarecrow And God

BRENDA Leyland continues to make news. Today’s round-up of the woman branded the “Madeleine McCann troll”:

New India Express – yep, it’s an international story:

…No one in the neat village of Burton Overy, Leics, suspected that Mrs Leyland had a cruel bone in her body, let alone the sort of mindset to pursue a vitriolic campaign again the grieving parents of the missing child, Madeleine McCann.

A likeable, churchgoing woman of no obviously strong views, she seemed more interested in gardening, photography and quizzes than any solitary obsession with tweeting. She also had a passionate, innocuous leading role in the village’s annual scarecrow competition.

Islam’s Problem: Ben Affleck Misses The Forest For The Trees

 

Andrew Sullivan:

There’s been so much going on I let this one pass. But since you ask, I think it’s pretty indisputable that any religion that can manifest itself in the form of something like ISIS in any period in history is in a very bad way. I know they’re outliers – even with respect to al Qaeda. But, leaving these mass murderers and sadists to one side, any religion that still cannot allow its own texts to be subject to scholarly and historical inquiry, any religion that denies in so many parts of the world any true opportunities for women, and any religion whose followers believe apostasy should be punished with death is in a terrible, terrible way. There is so much more to Islam than this – but this tendency is so widespread, and its fundamentalism so hard to budge, and the destruction wrought by its violent extremists so appalling that I find Affleck’s and Aslan’s defenses to be missing the forest for the trees.

IS smoking marijuana bad for you?  Professor Wayne Hall has studied the effects of the weed over 20 years. You can read his findings in Addiction (PDF of Full Study article here):

Adverse effects of acute cannabis use

  • Cannabis does not produce fatal overdoses.
  • Driving while cannabis-intoxicated doubles the risk of a car crash; this risk increases substantially if users are also alcohol-intoxicated.
  • Cannabis use during pregnancy slightly reduces birth weight of the baby.

Adverse effects of chronic cannabis use

  • Regular cannabis users can develop a dependence syndrome, the risks of which are around 1 in 10 of all cannabis users and 1 in 6 among those who start in adolescence.
  • Regular cannabis users double their risks of experiencing psychotic symptoms and disorders, especially if they have a personal or family history of psychotic disorders, and if they start using cannabis in their mid-teens.
  • Regular adolescent cannabis users have lower educational attainment than non-using peers but we don’t know whether the link is causal.
  • Regular adolescent cannabis users are more likely to use other illicit drugs, but we don’t know whether the link is causal.
  • Regular cannabis use that begins in adolescence and continues throughout young adulthood appears to produce intellectual impairment, but the mechanism and reversibility of the impairment is unclear.
  • Regular cannabis use in adolescence approximately doubles the risk of being diagnosed with schizophrenia or reporting psychotic symptoms in adulthood.
  • Regular cannabis smokers have a higher risk of developing chronic bronchitis.
  • Cannabis smoking by middle aged adults probably increases the risk of myocardial infarction.

Madeleine McCann: An Unwitting Bystander At Brenda Leyland’s Funeral

MADELEINE McCann: a look at the missing child in the news media, with Brenda Leyland:

In the Times, Carole Midgley is talking about trolls:

Who could look at the photo of Brenda Leyland with her handsome son, his arm curled protectively around her shoulders, and feel anything but desperately sad? We don’t yet know how or why Ms Leyland died in that room in the Marriott hotel, Leicestershire, but we know a man has lost his mother and we know how history will remember her: as the so-called “troll” accused of tweeting thousands of hate-filled messages about the grieving parents of Madeleine McCann…

We’re All Going To Die: North Korea Readies For Total War In 2015

PA 18703031 Were All Going To Die: North Korea Readies For Total War In 2015

A man watches a TV news program showing North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, at the Seoul Railway Station in Seoul, South Korea, Thursday, Jan. 16, 2014. North Korea’s top government Thursday proposed the rival Koreas stop slandering each other from later this month, halt hostile military acts and work toward preventing a nuclear disaster on the divided peninsula. The letters read “Stop slandering and joint military exercise”. (AP Photo/Ahn Young-joon)

 

EVEN though Kim Jong Un is the Sexiest Man Alive, has a weakness for cheese and was probably born in a lotus flower while scoring a hole in one as a sperm before emerging as a flying baby, let us not forget that he’s completely mental.

North Korea’s premier is a man who likes to keep his people under his waddling, hypnotic spell, while plotting constant war. You see, when you have everything and everyone is cow-eyed in your presence, the threat of nuclear war is probably the only thing you’ve got that gets the blood pumping around your regal underpants.

The Fat And Rich Diet; The Fat And Poor Take Pills

PA 391956 2 The Fat And Rich Diet; The Fat And Poor Take Pills

THE fat and rich exercise; the fat and poor take pills:

 …a new study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine,researchers from Concordia University looked at the incomes and health habits of more than 3,000 children and teens between the ages of 8 and 19 and more than 5,000 adults over the age of 20.

At least two-thirds of the study subjects reported attempting to reduce food intake or exercising in order to lose weight in the past year. Despite these efforts, the adults in the study gained an average of three pounds, while the youths gained about 12 pounds. The people in the lower income brackets gained about two pounds more than those in the highest one.

One reason for the disparity might have to do with the tactics they used to try to shed pounds: Compared to adults making $75,000 or more, those making less than $20,000 were 50 percent less likely to exercise, 42 percent less likely to drink a lot of water, and 25 percent less likely to eat less fat and sweets. And adults making between $20,000 and $75,000 were about 50 percent more likely to use over-the-counter diet pills, which aren’t proven to work.

Time To Treat Ebola Like Smallpox – A Photo History

EBOLA is in the USA. President Obama says he will increase passenger screenings to halt the spread. Instapundit notes:

I was talking to my mom the other night, and she remembered that back when I was a kid, they made her get a chest x-ray before they’d let her back in the the US after a year in Germany. They made us all get re-vaccinated for smallpox, too. And some English friends traveling to Harvard had to spend most of a day at the airport because one of their kids couldn’t prove vaccination. Nowadays, the travel restrictions seem a lot laxer, even as the disease threats are worse.

In 1971, there was a smallpox outbreak in in Meschede, West Germany.

A smallpox outbreak was reported and had already claimed six lives. The busy scene as smallpox vaccinations were given in a special clinic at St. George’s Hall, Bradford, Yorkshire.

IS it different for girls? It’s not often a male teacher accused of having sex with a student has his looks discussed, let alone made a key part of the story. But the Mirror’s report on Brianne Altice, married 35-year-old teacher accused of romancing a 16-year-old and 17-year-old student leads with news that she’s “blonde”.

PROOF: 6 Ways Barack Obama Is Using Ebola To Murder Americans, Kill Jesus And Avenge Slaves

PA 20938857 PROOF: 6 Ways Barack Obama Is Using Ebola To Murder Americans, Kill Jesus And Avenge Slaves

People read newspaper headlines commenting on American President Barrack Obama’s announcement on sending troops to fight the Ebola virus in Monrovia, Liberia, Wednesday, Sept. 17, 2014. 

 

YOU know that ebola has been found in the USA? And you know Barack Obama is mixed race? And you know that…

Obama is Infecting Christians with Ebola To Destroy Jesus and Start A New Age of Liberal Darkness

The website Christwire, which sounds like a expletive – CHRISTWIRE! we’re fecked!!! – has news:

‘Abe’ has news you can use:

Barack Obama has used genetics to manufacture the most powerful virus in the history of mankind. The virus is an evolved form of EBOLA, a deadly virus that causes the body to bleed to death in a week…

Keep in mind, Obama-era evolution of Ebola has already killed thousands in Africa, and only moments ago, a person dropped dead in London from Obama-Ebola.

Do no forget, the B.O. in Ebola stands for Barack Obama. The rest of the acronym has been up for debate in the news media community.

Who to blame? Is there an ObArmy?

The virus is easily spread and all of the illegals who have just so suddenly been allowed to come into America, you may ask why is this happening? They are all carriers of the virus. They have the cure already in their bloodstream, but they are contagious. These illegals are the source of the spread and just you watch, in about 30 days the first cases of Ebola will start infecting Americans.

But the government already has the cure. So what is the problem?

The problem is that Obama controls the cure.

Brenda Leyland: Cliff Richard, Free Speech And Martin Brunt’s Wife

Brenda Leyland dead Brenda Leyland: Cliff Richard, Free Speech And Martin Brunts Wife

 

BRENDA Leyland continues to make news. The woman monstered by the media, outed by twitter hunters who allegedly tweeted thousands of often abusive and potentially libellous messages about the parents of missing Madeleine McCann, is dead. This is an at-a-glance round-up of today’s news on her:

Bryony Gordon, The Telegraph:

It’s never OK to troll anyone – even a troll - Cyberspace is medieval – we no sooner take in an event than put the people at the heart of it in the stocks, be they the McCanns, Brenda Leyland or Sky News…

On so many levels, the story of Brenda Leyland, the church-going Twitter troll who said some ungodly things about the McCann family, makes my heart ache… I can’t stand the idea of this lonely woman with her pathetic double life under the pseudonym of “Sweepyface”; one minute attending church, the next rushing home to spill on to the internet noxious bile about a couple with a missing child. But nor can I bear that she was treated in some quarters as if she herself had abducted Madeleine McCann, and not just acted like a deluded moron with broadband and access to some of the web’s crazier conspiracy theories.
