First Minister Nicola Sturgeon shakes hands with Prime Minister David Cameron at the Scottish Parliament

Watered down ‘Edinburgh Agreement’ via the Smith Commission hailed by David Cameron as ‘Fair’ smacks of a liar and a cheat. For a second lets look to the ‘no voters’ in last years Referendum vote for Scottish Independence. People who voted no did so in the belief that a no vote would bring ‘Home Rule’ and a 99% free Scotland. Looking back as we now do we see that it was panic stations by David Cameron but for me the worst culprit in all of this was Ex Prime Minister and Labour Leader Gordon Brown. He stood there on live TV and promised the Scottish populous the Earth then he retired for a nice job working in the European parliament with his Wife. Mr Brown’s house is almost visible from my front door, just over the forth road bridge, he lied, he panicked the over 65’s into voting no, it was this age group in the end that made it a no vote, the irony in all this was in 1979 there was a referendum that Scotland actually won to be free but it never happened on some technicality. In the 1979 devolution referendum 52% of voters said YES as did 43 to 19 Scottish MP’s, The Labour Party said NO, by imposing an unheard of and made up on the spot ‘undemocratic 40% rule’. so back in 1979 Scotland Voted yes with promises as was in 2014 said, nothing was given in 1979, the age group that let us down in 1979 or the people who voted yes or no and seen the lies and betrayal are NOW the over 65’s in Scotland, ironic the generation of people who had lived the lie before, fell for the lies twice. Thankfully in a few years there 100% WILL be another Referendum or Scotland via the SNP with Plaid Cymru and the Green party could join Labour in Westminster for a 4 party coalition. If you don’t know the UK has a 2 party coalition Government at present with the Tory party and Liberal party. The Conservatives won 36% of the vote, Labour 29% and the Lib Dems 23%, They have 306 MPs – they needed 326 for a majority so it was a decision in the end by the Liberal Democrats to use their 23% to add to the Tory 36% and together get a 2 party Government over the line with over 326 seats at Westminster in the 2006 federal election as a minority government, so could we see an SNP/Plaid Cymru/Green Party holding up a minority Labour Westminster Government that will deliver the ‘Edinburgh Agreement’ and the ‘Vow’ AND MORE!! I say why not!

DAVID Cameron pledged to press ahead with his plans to strip ­powers from Scottish MPs when he came to Scotland to say his pre-­referendum vow on more powers for Holyrood had been delivered.

The Prime Minister said the pro-UK parties’ promise to strengthen the Scottish Parliament had been kept when the UK government yesterday published draft legislation to transfer new powers north of the Border. On a visit to Edinburgh, Mr Cameron said the new powers were “the right resting place” for devolution but added there would be no let-up on his plans to prevent Scottish MPs from voting on English matters at Westminster. The UK government Command Paper, containing 44 draft clauses, was published ahead of its Burns Night deadline and is a key milestone in the fulfilment of the “more powers” vow made by the leaders of all the pro-Union parties in the dying days of last year’s referendum ­campaign.

However, First Minister Nicola ­Sturgeon claimed the draft clauses had been “significantly watered down” from the proposals originally agreed by the Smith Commission, set up to consider new powers for Holyrood after last year’s ­independence referendum. Ms Sturgeon said: “Too much of what the Prime Minister has set out imposes restrictions on the recommended ­devolved powers and would hand a veto to UK ministers in key areas.”

The document, entitled Scotland in the United Kingdom – An enduring settlement, set out the “more powers” package arrived at by the Smith Commission last year. The package, signed off by all Scotland’s main parties, included the ability for Scotland to vary income tax bands and rates, further borrowing powers, control of air passenger duty and control over £2.5 billion worth of welfare. The prospect of a more powerful Scottish Parliament has seen Mr Cameron promise to resolve the “West Lothian Question” – the anomaly whereby Scottish MPs vote on areas reserved to Westminster such as health and education even though they do not affect their constituents.

Mr Cameron underlined his commitment to “English Votes for English Laws” (Evel) yesterday after Ms Sturgeon said this week that SNP MPs would begin to vote on English matters.

Ms Sturgeon said SNP MPs would abandon their policy of not voting on English health ­because NHS funding south of the Border had an impact on Scotland’s budget.

The Prime Minister said Ms Sturgeon was “wrong” to argue that MPs from Scotland should be able to vote on English health and education.

Mr Cameron said: “If I win the election, the government I lead will put in place the measures necessary to make sure that key element of English Votes for English Laws is delivered. “On [that] issue, I have been very clear. I think it is only fair as a Westminster Member of Parliament, I don’t have the ability to vote on Scottish health or education or Scottish housing. “I don’t see why in the future that SNP members, or indeed Labour, Liberal or Conservative members or Alex Salmond himself, should be able to come to Westminster and have a decisive say in English or Welsh education, health service or other ­issues. “So if I am your Prime Minister after 7 May, you will get in full these measures set out in this document, in a bill in the first Queen’s Speech of a government I lead. But there will also be very clearly set-out rules put in place so that English MPs have the decisive say on issues that only affect England. I think that is fair and right.”

As soon as the draft legislation was published, the SNP went on the offensive, claiming that the proposals were watered down and gave UK ministers a veto over welfare powers that were supposed to be devolved.

The UK government denied Ms Sturgeon’s claims, while Mr Cameron called on the SNP to start talking about how Scotland’s new powers can be used to improve schools and ­hospitals.

Mr Cameron said: “From my point of view this is the right resting place, we have now got a very strong Scottish Parliament raising the majority of its ­revenue. “There are more powers than most other devolved parliaments in the developed world. I certainly don’t want to spend the next five years debating, is that the right balance of powers. “Of course, some people will argue that there needs to be more changes. The SNP are already doing that. Of course they were never going to accept Smith as an outcome, because they want to break up the United Kingdom. “That is their prerogative, but we have demonstrated through a referendum that is not the will of the Scottish people.”

Ms Sturgeon claimed a clause dealing with the Universal Credit payment, the UK welfare reform that has seen the merger of several benefits into a single payment, amounted to a UK government veto. Although Universal Credit remains reserved to Westminster, under Smith’s package Scottish ministers are to be given the power to vary some of benefits within it. The clause said Scottish ministers should consult the Scottish secretary about making changes to Universal Credit and that the secretary of state should also give agreement about when a change should start.

Ms Sturgeon claimed that the welfare provisions did not enable the Scottish Parliament to create new benefit entitlements across devolved areas and required the approval of UK ministers for any changes to Universal Credit – including action needed to end the so-called ‘bedroom tax’. Ms Sturgeon said: “The proposals on welfare do not allow us to vary Universal Credit without the permission of the UK government. That means we will not have the independence to take action to abolish the bedroom tax. “At the same time, the power to create new benefit entitlements in any devolved area has simply not been delivered, while the Command Paper makes clear that, pending devolution of disability support, the roll-out of personal independence payments and the cut to spending on disability benefits will ­continue.”

Scottish Secretary Alistair Carmichael denied Ms Sturgeon’s claims. He claimed the clause in question had been inserted to ensure that there would be “consultation” between the two governments and added that “consent would not be unreasonably withheld”. He said: “It is going to be more important than ever that Scotland’s two governments are able to work together in a mature, co-operative and collaborative way. “It would be refreshing if instead of trying to kick up dust, the Nationalists would tell us what they want to do with the ­powers.”

May: ‘Unnatural Sex’ File To Be Investigated


Theresa May says the contents of a file on "unnatural sex" in Westminster handed to the Thatcher government will be investigated.

Theresa May says the contents of a file on “unnatural sex” in Westminster handed to the Thatcher government will be investigated.

Well well, we are told it is “In the hands of the police” We have a key suspect dying today, Prince Andrew being asked to speak under Oath in a US Court regarding under age sex. I am still surprised the Main stream media are taking this story. I have been on it a year or so, so to see it on MSM was a shock. Images and Documents are flying around cyber-space at the moment. I guess it is a case of “Who is brave enough to point a finger” Watch this space I guess. This is July 7th 2014 http://shaunynews.com/2014/07/07/theresa-may-launches-major-new-inquiry-into-uk-child-sex-abuse-allegations/ What exactly is the hold up, people want answers, don’t expect any till after the upcoming UK General Elections, for obvious reasons, but we all know this happened, we just don’t know who the king pin was, who was involved. I have mentioned many names in my research on this and places like hotels and other places. Hard research Sky are now seemingly doing

A secret file on “unnatural sexual” behaviour in Westminster from the 1980s, revealed by Sky News, will be looked at and investigated by police if necessary, Theresa May has said. The Home Secretary suggested the file, which was first disclosed by Sky News on Wednesday, might be a duplicate of one already examined by authorities. She said there was a chance it had already been seen by an inquiry by NSPCC chief executive Peter Wanless, into the Home Office handling of historic sex abuse claims.

Mrs May said the investigation into historic child sex abuse, launched in the wake of numerous scandals, would examine the file. However, Mr Wanlesss, who led last year’s review into government documents from between 1979 and 1999, has said nobody showed it to him.

He told Sky News: “Under the specific terms of reference set by the Home Office we made the most extensive inquiries possible within a very limited time frame. This specific file was not revealed by any department or individual we consulted.” The filed, titled “PREM19/588 – SECURITY. Allegations against former public (word missing) of unnatural sexual proclivities; security aspects 1980 Oct 27 – 1981 Mar 20″ was discovered by university lecturer Dr Chris Murphy at the National Archives in Kew.

Answering an urgent question from the shadow home secretary in the House of Commons on the delay into the inquiry, Mrs May said: “You have made reference to the file that has come to light. “We are checking that today but as I understand it we believe it may be a duplicate of a file that was at the Home Office which was seen by Wanless and Whittam during their review but of course we are checking that. “Any allegations in relation to that file will be passed to the police and those concerned to ensure that they are looked at properly.”

Mrs May set up the inquiry in July to find out whether public bodies had neglected or covered up allegations of child sex abuse in the wake of claims there was a Westminster paedophile ring in the 1980s.  However, the first two people appointed to chair the inquiry resigned because of links to political figures of the time. She said a new chairman would be announced at the end of the month as would the model of the inquiry – either a Royal Commission or a statutory inquiry – both would have full access to evidence.

Erosion of free speech? David Cameron pledges to ban Snapchat and WhatsApp


Our freedom's are being taken slowly

Our freedom’s are being taken slowly

By @ShaunyNews Via: http://rt.com/uk/221879-surveillance-whatsapp-facebook-snowden/#.VLQ1ibzN3WU.twitter

PM David Cameron may block encrypted messaging platforms Snapchat and WhatsApp if the Conservatives win May’s general election, as part of the party’s agenda to bolster surveillance powers following last week’s terror attacks in Paris. During a meeting with Britain’s security chiefs, the Prime Minister pledged to halt the use of communications platforms that can withstand snooping from security services who are in possession of a warrant.

Such software applications focus on popular messaging and social networking apps that deploy encryption techniques to protect users data. WhatsApp, Apple’s iMessage and FaceTime, which encrypt information in this manner, could all be targeted by the Conservatives’ proposed policy. Cameron also pledged to revive the Tories’ much-criticized “snoopers charter” to aid security officials in monitoring online activity.

Why?

Why?

In April 2014, the European Court of Justice ruled against the introduction of the Snooper’s Charter, warning it would culminate in privacy rights violations. The Court outlined a more moderate data retention program that would aid criminal investigations. But in early July it emerged the government was seeking to push through emergency legislation, which would flout the Court’s judgment and re-legislate for the blanket retention of data.

The snooper’s charter subsequently caused a rift in government, however, after it was blocked by Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg on the grounds it posed a risk to civil liberties. Home Secretary Theresa May accused the Liberal Democrats of “outrageous irresponsibility” for blocking the legislation at the time. Speaking on Monday, Cameron asked whether a platform of communication that is inaccessible by state authorities is wise.

In a climate of heightened mass surveillance, firms such as WhatsApp have remained determined to continue offering encrypted services. Public awareness about the importance of encryption mushroomed in the aftermath of former NSA computer analyst and whistleblower Edward Snowden’s disclosures on NSA and GCHQ mass snooping. Civil liberties groups warn attempts to limit the use of privacy tools under the auspices of protecting national security are a violation of citizens’ privacy rights. Privacy rights advocates say encrypted platforms are important tools for campaigners and activists.

In October 2014, Parker Higgern, an activist at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, emphasized the importance of maintaining such privacy tools in an era of mass surveillance. “It’s essential that the use of encryption, anonymization techniques, and other privacy practices is not deemed a suspicious activity,” he said. “Rather, it must be recognized as an essential element for practicing freedom of speech in a digital environment.” Campaigners say encryption can also help victims of criminal activity and those in oppressive regimes to remain safe and secure.

Scotland and the World: Can we look to a World run by Woman for true Democracy?


B57akF4IEAAf5yD

ShaunBy @ShaunyGibson – Used to be @ ShaunyNews 

I once used to think if the World was ran by woman we would have a better fairer World. Some of the rumours coming out of Westminster and also the US Senate are, well disturbing to say the least. Much of what I heard from Westminster, sadly, was when Thatcher was in charge, so can we say this? Can we say ‘Woman in Charge would be better’ Don’t get me wrong I love Nicola Sturgeon and have done so since she was a 16 year old student coming through to the political World. The progress this woman has made has been nothing short of astonishing. Then we have Leanne Wood, she climbed the same mountain in a man’s criminal party. Natalie Bennett needs a shout from the Green Party.

One thing all 3 of these Woman share is ‘THEY CARE’ And when we go to the polls we look for democracy to be real and for our leaders to lead, not take from us and leave us poor. The act’s of the Tory party the last few years and that of the American political system has left many much worse off. Poverty is real in both countries. I am led to believe the UK and USA are the two most powerful countries on Earth, for that reason I wanted an independent Scotland. I wanted Scotland to vanish like a rabbit in the woods and be like Sweden, Finland, Holland, Countries that just live and stay as far away from War. Every time the UK goes to War Scotland get dragged along kicking and screaming. We don’t want the Nuclear weapons, all of them, all of the UK arsenal kept in the West coast of Scotland in Faslane naval base

We will have a chance soon to rid our soil of these weapons of mass destruction

We will have a chance soon to rid our soil of these weapons of mass destruction

So the question I am asking you Scotland and anyone in the World I guess in any country is simple “Can ‘Woman Power’ lead us to the promised land” We are tied well with Wales, a bond that will be hard to break, we are one in the same. This togetherness with Wales may one day be the friendship that gets Scotland what it was offered promised then denied. We got some of the deal but nowhere near enough. I see a WORLD waking up, I see democracy in people and not in politicians, I see a need for love and caring for others in people but not in politicians, well some politicians are different. Alex Salmond, with nobody knowing gave 1/3 of his working salary to charity for many years, yet people say “Ahh but he will get 2 wages” The point being, Alex doesn’t rip his own people off to fill his pockets the same as the Tory party and the Red Tories have done, leading to 5 MP’s getting jailed, many more should have been. We go back to Thatcher, I hated this woman but I did not party in the street like half the UK did, I don’t party at death, but I had a small smile on my face for my Gran, Thatcher pulled half her pension and almost made her freeze to death. I left School and went into Thatchers YTS Scheme, like many in ‘Scotland only’ we worked a 39 hour working week for £29.50 + expenses. We can’t use Thatcher as a yard stick, she was evil, she took from the people and made people suffer and commit suicide, so don’t use this woman as a reason for your answer.

...Yet David Cameron, same Tory Party leader of this generation went to his funeral. Irony is a kicker huh?

…Yet David Cameron, same Tory Party leader of this generation went to his funeral. Irony is a kicker huh?

Angela Merkel the German Chancellor since 2005 came into a man’s political World as did many others, some in the past and some still in power. Would a World led by woman be a better World? Would woman be so greedy, so perverted, so willing to help friends and not those who voted them in. I say perverted there, I refer to the ongoing child abuse claims in Westminster and Whitehall. I believe this is a man’s society, a man’s world, we NEED more woman in power, in places where they can call things out. So again I ask simply, ‘Would a Woman’s World be a better World?’ The list below is every woman to have served as leader of their nation, do we need more?

Project fear: Queen’s ‘foreboding’ Scottish independence plea strategically crafted by Whitehall


Britain's Queen Elizabeth

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth

By @ShaunyGibson – Used to be @ ShaunyNews Via: http://rt.com/uk/215307-queen-intervened-scottish-independence/

Surprised? I ain’t. We seen Gordon Brown fool us then retire, we seen Johann Lamont the then Labour leader fool us only to retreat and stand down, she knew she did bad for Scotland. We had so many people telling is it wouldn’t work. David Cameron said “I will not debate with Alex Salmond” but came up to Scotland with a ton of Tory English people to fill a room and beg Scotland to vote ‘NO’ Knowing his and many of his friends jobs would go. So I am not surprised at this. Alex Salmond had no chance looking back but today we have Nicola Sturgeon who actually just refused to pay Scotland’s share to keep the Queen! It is my 2nd link below.  For the record here is all I wrote about the 2014 Scottish Referendum vote:

It REALLY was this crazy!

It REALLY was this crazy!

https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/?s=Scottish+Referendum

https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/?s=Nicola+Sturgeon

Downing Street and senior civil servants were so fearful that Scotland’s independence referendum could have sparked the breakup of the UK that they requested the Queen to publicly intervene in the closing days of the campaign, a Whitehall source says. The intervention by Queen Elizabeth II, 88, was scrupulously crafted by her private secretary and Britain’s chief civil servant, a Guardian report revealed Wednesday. The delicately worded plea was constructed in the final phase of the Scottish independence campaign, as Downing Street faced what a senior Whitehall source told the paper was a “meltdown.” Fears ran high in Westminster as polls revealed amplifying support for the pro-independence camp, the source said.

Behind-the-scenes discussions between Britain’s Cabinet Secretary Sir Jeremy Heywood and the Queen’s private secretary Sir Christopher Geidt led to the Queen’s rare public plea, the Guardian reports. Four days prior to the September 18 referendum, the influential Monarch pleaded with Scots to “think very carefully” on their way to the ballot box.

A high-level Whitehall source who spoke exclusively to the paper said the government hoped the tense negotiations that preceded the Queen’s cautionary words would serve as a warning to Scots they faced a decision “filled with foreboding.” The Whitehall official’s disclosure echoed criticism directed at the British establishment regarding“Project Fear,” as it was dubbed by advocates of Scottish independence. The strategic project was characterized by a ferocious media campaign, and relentless fearmongering stemming from the City of London and Westminster’s political elite. But few expected its tendrils to infiltrate Buckingham Palace.

As the Scottish independence campaign drew to a close, the Queen’s unusual disclosure came as a surprise to many who noted her mostly impartial 62-year reign. Referencing the prospect of Scottish independence while addressing a well-wisher after Sunday service near her historic Balmoral estate in northwest Scotland, the Queen said: “Well, I hope people will think very carefully about the future.”

A seamless design

The strategic intervention was concocted by senior civil servants following Prime Minister David Cameron’s growing concerns the pro-independence Yes camp were gaining an ominous degree of ground in the final stretch of the campaign. As the countdown to the referendum progressed, Whitehall figures allegedly told Buckingham Palace that a few careful words offered by the Queen would help matters.

Prime Minister of Britain David Cameron

Prime Minister of Britain David Cameron

As part of this plan, Geidt and Heywood are thought to have devised the phrase she later uttered. While shrouded in a veil of neutrality, the words ultimately indicate the Queen’s support for the union. The Guardian’s Whitehall source told the paper the intervention was meticulously calibrated.

“She knew exactly what she was doing, which is, there are two possible responses on the referendum. Either one, you buy into this is a fantastic festival of democracy, or two, you suggest this is a decision filled with foreboding.” “So by saying I hope people will think carefully you imply the second … Without her taking a side, it cast just the right element of doubt over the nature of the decision.”

Advocates of Scottish independence claim “Project Fear” was a scrupulously designed establishment scheme created to ensure the union remained intact. Whether the Queen’s intervention was an explicit extension of this pro-union strategy is a matter of conjecture. But the possibility has not been ruled out. The No campaign’s relentless forecasts of economic peril, dwindling national security, an EU membership in jeopardy, and ruptured NATO relations ultimately overpowered the pro-independence movement’s messages of positivity, hope and empowerment. Many argue “Project Fear” was central to this.

In the wake of a referendum that almost terminated a 307-year-old political union, Westminster still faces many challenges. The Yes campaign’s vision of Scotland as a Scandinavian-style state characterized by inclusivity, egalitarianism, nuclear disarmament and clean energy has been denounced by critics as utopian. However, an appetite for independence remains rife across many parts of Scotland and is unlikely to wane. Buckingham Palace declined to comment on Geidt and Heywood’s alleged discussions concerning the Queen’s intervention.

A Cabinet Office spokeswoman also declined to comment, emphasizing the body does not publicly discuss correspondence “between the Queen’s private secretary and civil servants.”

New Unit To Target ‘Dark-Net’ Paedophiles


cegrab-20130920-070432-533-1-2048x1152-20141211-023012-211

With the Sex scandal involving famous and political people in the UK just now this is good news. https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/?s=sex+abuse My only worry is people in high places are being protected. Should you wish to research this story further, I advise you do so. I have scanned all forms of news Media be it Main Stream or Alternative and there seems to be a cover-up in Westmister with a host of files being destroyed, this is a story some, well a few UK Main Stream Media have taken this story on to my surprise and others I am guessing. Finding these people and getting them behind bars in a jail is the story here. Sadly men all over the World find something in their ways to do this. Some of the abuse is just un-human, I have blogged much of it here on Ace News  https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/?s=Vatican+Sex There are more I have done

Via Sky News

A new joint unit from the National Crime Agency and GCHQ will target users sharing child abuse images on the “dark net”. The as-yet-unnamed unit will develop new technological capabilities to analyse the vast array of illegal images and focus on the most prolific offenders.

Prime Minister David Cameron said: “The so-called ‘dark net’ is increasingly used by paedophiles to view sickening images. “I want them to hear loud and clear, we are shining a light on the web’s darkest corners: if you are thinking of offending there will be nowhere for you to hide.” The dark net refers to areas of the internet which are not indexed by search engines like Google or Bing. Many sites are only accessible with anonymity software such as Tor. Around 20,000 people in the UK visit secret or encrypted networks every day, although not all of those who visit these sites do so for criminal purposes.

Via Ca News on You Tube

The dark net is the new focus of a UK campaign against child abuse images which has had notable success on the “surface web”. In 2014, the Internet Watch Foundation, which proactively seeks out child sexual abuse imagery, has removed images from 27,850 websites – a 109% increase on the previous year. In 1996, the UK was responsible for 18% of all child abuse imagery hosted online. Today, it is responsible for less than 1%.

Private companies have helped with this effort. Images identified by the Internet Watch Foundation are given a digital fingerprint, called a hash value. Google, Microsoft, Twitter, Facebook and Yahoo use those fingerprints to identify images being shared on their sites and to remove them. Google and Microsoft have also introduced changes to their search engines. Microsoft uses information provided by the NCA to blacklist particular search terms.

Matt Brittin, Google’s president for northern and central Europe, said: “Over the past 12 months our algorithm changes and deterrent campaign have already led to a five-fold reduction in a number of child sexual abuse image-related queries in search.” The new unit is the cornerstone of measures to be announced by Mr Cameron at the We Protect Children Online summit in London. The UK has created its own database of 2.6 million known child abuse images to assist police across the country. More than 30 countries have given commitments to increase their law enforcement endeavours around online child abuse, by setting up their own national databases of child abuse material or linking to the Interpol database.

A new £50m Child Protection Fund, the first of its kind, will support prevention and help victims. UNICEF will support its development.

Looking back on Scotland’s ‘No Vote’ – Why?


English people pretending to be Scottish

English people pretending to be Scottish

By @ShaunyGibson – Used to be @ ShaunyNews

Looking back on the whole year we all wrote, read and tried to free Scotland from a Union we still could and can leave within a few years, it makes me sad. I done so many articles, Audio blogs and said “VOTE FOR SELFISH REASONS WE WILL LOSE” This is EXACTLY what happened peeps https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/07/13/why-we-cant-be-selfish-in-this-vote-scotland/ Some of us fell for the BBC Lies, the lies about Banks, banks who never actually said these things same as the Oil industry, the BBC tricked us, yet people STILL watch the BBC and pay a TV Licence. Some fell for Gordon Brown’s promises, yeah the same Gordon Brown who has retired a Multi-millionaire not a million miles from me to live his life in utter riches, same as Johann Lamont who after the no vote ran for the hills KNOWING she did wrong and to be fair her conscience got the best of her. Some believed DAVID CAMERON AND ED MILIBAND!  And most of the %’s of people who votes no were lied to in 1979 when we actually freed ourselves but were not allowed to leave. I still shake my head at the selfish people who voted no. Tommy Sheridan is a man I still have TONS of respect for, he did a talk almost every night for 130 days, in the end his voice gave way. I feel for everyone who pushed the Yes vote hard. But listen, we vote SNP next year! We can be free. SCOTLAND, DO NOT FALL FOR THE LIES AGAIN, PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are nearing an election, so I thought I would start the ball rolling

Police in Cameron Security Scare, proving Obama vote video was staged


Inquiry Call After PM's Collision

Inquiry Call After PM’s Collision

By Shaun Gibson : @ShaunyNews

Lets go back a week to this blog here, and video first.

Chicago man to Obama: ‘Don’t touch my girlfriend’ – Obama’s Security does ‘nothing’

https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/10/22/chicago-man-to-obama-dont-touch-my-girlfriend-obamas-security-does-nothing/

~~~

Now I stated I believed the above video with Obama and Mike was ‘Staged’ ‘Set up’ to make Obama look like your ‘Average Dude’ No security detail ON EARTH would allow any man to say that, so close to the Worlds most powerful man (If you believe he is)

Now today. A guy out in London running got arrested for running NEAR David Cameron. I wish I was making this up. A man walks past Obam pointing and makes a threat, NOTHING. A man in London running IN A PARK towards a group of men in suits and is arrested. I hear from people in the area that the man was screaming “I am late for my bus, f*uck off” The video is below.

Scotland Yard has launched a security review after a member of the public appeared to collide with the Prime Minister in Leeds. Former close protection officers and MPs have also called for a full inquiry into David Cameron’s security arrangements after the runner was able to get close to him and members of his protection team as they left the city’s Civic Hall. Video footage shows the man, identified as Dean Farley, heading towards the group at speed while the Prime Minister visibly braces himself. Farley then appears to bump into Mr Cameron before security personnel step in and wrestle the dreadlocked 28-year-old out of the way. The PM appears to be alone for several moments before the team got him into a waiting car.

: Man Held After PM Security Alert

Man Held After PM Security Alert

Mr Farley, who is understood to have been on the way to a local gym, was briefly arrested. He has since been released without charge. He later posted on his Facebook page: “So im all over the news as ‘the protester that attacked david cameron in leeds’ yeah if you call brushing into someone while running then assaulted by half a dozen coppers in suits attacking…” Speaking from her home in north Leeds, Mr Farley’s mother said she had spoken to him and he was “very upset by the whole situation”. West Yorkshire Police, which is taking part in the review by Met Police, said there was “nothing sinister” about the incident and it was “just a man in the wrong place at the wrong time”. 

A Downing Street spokesman said the PM “has gratitude and confidence in the protection teams who look after his security on a daily basis” and will “cooperate in full” with the Met review. After returning to London, Mr Cameron laughed off the collision as he appeared before MPs in the House of Commons. He said former deputy prime minister John Prescott, who once punched a protester who threw eggs at him, had been with him in the Civic Hall. The Prime Minister said: “John Prescott was in the room as I gave the speech. So as I left the room I thought the moment of maximum danger had probably passed. But clearly that wasn’t the case.”

But in the wake of last week’s attack at the Canadian parliament and with the UK terror threat level raised to severe, there are heightened concerns about the security of British dignitaries. Conservative MP Mark Pritchard told Sky News that a police inquiry must ensure “lessons are learned” from Monday’s incident. “The Met Police have some of the best close protection officers in the world. However, this was a clear breach of security and could have been far more sinister in outcome,” he said. Former diplomatic protection officer Steve Park also hit out at the PM’s security team, saying they took “their eye off the ball”.

Last week's attack at the Canadian parliament

Last week’s attack at the Canadian parliament has caused all leaders to be worried, sadly

They “should have been looking metres ahead expecting an attack like this, especially nowadays,” he said. “Had the attacker coming towards them had a knife or a pistol I think it could have been really grave for the Prime Minister.” Sky’s Home Affairs Correspondent Mark White said: “Maybe it does raise questions about the kind of security bubble you put around VIPs when they are put in the public like this. “But you can see from the video that it did happen very quickly, and the security personnel that were with the Prime Minister did react to pull this person away.”

18 Months I Warned You About ISIS, Time And Time Again, Fell on Deaf Ears – Now Look


These guys are NOT going to mess around.

These guys are NOT going to mess around

By Shaun Gibson : @ShaunyNews

What we are starting to see is ISIS/IS/Islamic State or whatever you want to call them coming through with a terrorising promise to the West. They told us they would behead people who are against them. We have had two beheading’s here in London, England (I am in Scotland if you don’t know) We have had a Terrorist try to kill Police officers with an AXE yesterday in New York https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/10/24/new-york-police-officer-critically-wounded-in-hatchet-attack/ And of course the sad events in Canada.

Now I research HARD and I will leave you with 3 blogs I have copied to here you can read or scan through and also some links to other blogs I did on what is happening just now. With Ebola hitting the USA and ISIS shooting in Canada and the Axe Terrorist in New York, added to Lee Rigby who was the soldier beheaded in London, we have an enemy coming good on a promise. Where I am we are vigilant at ALL times. We had a terror attack in Glasgow Airport a few year back, we beat the crap out of them both, who were on fire while being beaten. I don’t think they will come to Scotland again, we fight back. That was almost a joke there, but to be fair this is no time for joking, the game has changed, the game is rigged, the plan is set in motion. I showed you ALL John McCain meeting ISIS. Why did he do that? https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/06/25/photos-of-john-mccain-seen-with-isis-leaders-in-syria-before-their-rampage-through-iraq/ See I see a 1st World full of people who believe the nightly news like they do in God, and that is Dangerous! We need to think outside the box, put clues together, try and see the bigger picture. What I have done here is put the ‘Bigger Picture’ into one blog. USA and Canada, this, I believe, is just the start of an enemy you will fight in your own streets. Read and educate yourself or let it come and say “I can’t change a thing” One line that annoys me is “I can’t change a thing” How about coming together and looking after each other instead of being alone and in denial? I am just saying. For nearly 2 year, on my old blog and now AceNews and ShaunyNews I have warned and warned and warned bad was coming to the USA. I even told Canada what was coming. I don’t want a pat on the back for being right, far from it, I wish I was wrong. But mark my WORD! This is only going to get worse, a new World is about to hit us all. With Ebola and ISIS, our World is about to change, I think, in ways we can’t even imagine. We are fighting ISIS in Iraq and Syria with bombs but they are here, in our Countries and streets, how do we fight an enemy like that?

Iraqi ISIS Militants Threaten Revenge Attacks On USA Soil

https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/08/19/iraqi-isis-militants-threaten-revenge-attacks-on-usa-soil/

cegrab-20140819-061055-139-1-522x293

Iraqi militants have threatened to respond to US airstrikes by attacking American targets, posting a video in which they warn: “We will drown all of you in blood”. The message, which was accompanied by photographs of beheadings, came as Barack Obama announced Kurdish peshmerga troops, supported by US jets, had recaptured the strategically important Mosul Dam. The US president said Islamic State (IS) fighters remained “a threat to Iraq and the entire region” and said Iraqis “must reject them and unite by pushing them out of lands they have occupied”. “They claim to represent Sunni grievances but they slaughter Sunni men, women and children,” he said, adding limited military missions would continue.

Unlike al Qaeda, IS has, to date, focused on seizing land in Iraq and Syria for its self-proclaimed caliphate, rather than attacking Western targets. Earlier, the group denied losing control of Mosul Dam, which supplies water and electricity to much of the country. It had been feared they would cut pipes and cables or blow up the structure, branded the “most dangerous in the world” by the US Army in 2007, causing huge loss of life and extensive damage along the Tigris valley.

Army spokesman Lt Gen Qassim al Moussawi said at least 170 bombs had been dismantled around the site but warned many more remain. Meanwhile, Sky News has gained exclusive access to suspected IS militants who were captured by Kurdish fighters. The trio are being held in a secret location, claiming they were tortured into making confessions. And IS militants killed dozens of Kurdish peshmerga fighters and captured 170 of them, a Twitter account that supports the group said

Mr Obama has authorised limited missions in Iraq

Iraq’s outgoing foreign minister Hoshiyar Zebari also said Kurdish officials would take part in negotiations on forming a new government, paving the way for improved ties between Kurds and the central administration. It came after David Cameron insisted Britain would not be dragged into another war in Iraq to fight what he called “monstrous” jihadists. He spoke out after it emerged the UK had briefly sent a number of ground troops to Irbil to prepare for a rescue mission to help displaced Yazidi people. A strongly worded statement followed confusion over Britain’s involvement in Iraq after a series of media interviews by senior ministers. “I want to be absolutely clear to you and to families watching at home. Britain is not going to get involved in another war in Iraq,” the Prime Minister said in a televised address. “We are not going to be putting boots on the ground. We are not going to be sending in the British Army.” Mr Cameron’s pledge followed comments by Defence Secretary Michael Fallon, who said the UK’s latest involvement in Iraq would likely last “weeks and months”. Mr Fallon had been addressing British troops in Cyprus, as it was revealed UK soldiers had been back on the ground in Iraq for the first time since 2009.

FBI, Homeland Security Bulletin Asks Police To Be Aware Of ISIS

ISIS TERRORIST RECRUITING IN HOUSTON TEXAS

ISIS THREATENS AMERICA AGAIN-“WE ARE IN YOUR STATES, CITIES AND STREETS”

BOSTON (CBS/AP) – Federal authorities sent a bulletin to U.S. law enforcement Friday in light of the threat concerning militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), according to CBS News. The bulletin from the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI cites no known threat to the U.S. homeland, but reminds law enforcement to be alert and aware of the ISIS threat, CBS reported. U.S. law enforcement has been intensifying efforts to identify Islamic State sympathizers who could help export the group’s brand of violent jihad to the United States. They come amid a new barrage of U.S. airstrikes against the Islamic State group that beheaded American journalist James Foley of Rochester, New Hampshire. The group called Foley’s killing revenge for previous strikes against militants in Iraq.

WBZ-TV security analyst Ed Davis says there’s no question the stakes have been raised by ISIS running from Syria through Iraq. “They’ve not only collected ransom from European countries for hostages but they’ve sacked several banks that have given them hundreds of millions of dollars,” Davis said. “When you see an organization that’s this well grounded in tactics also having the ability financially to move those plans forward it’s a very troubling time,” he added. Davis called the ISIS militants highly trained military people who know exactly what they’re doing.

Muslim Brotherhood has a ‘significant presence’ in Canada

http://shaunynews.com/2014/05/27/muslim-brotherhood-has-a-significant-presence-in-canada/

Muslim brotherhood members and ousted Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi supporters protest in July 2013 in Cairo, Egypt. The Broherhood is facing a crackdown in Egypt following Hersi ouster by the military.

Muslim brotherhood members and ousted Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi supporters protest in July 2013 in Cairo, Egypt. The Broherhood is facing a crackdown in Egypt following Hersi ouster by the military.

TORONTO — The Muslim Brotherhood has established a “significant presence” in Canada, says a study released Tuesday that asks whether the government should follow the lead of the United Kingdom and launch an investigation into the group.

Calling the Brotherhood the “antithesis” of Canadian laws and values, the study urged Ottawa to deny public support and charity status to organizations aligned with the group, which promotes political Islam as an alternative to Western-style democracy.

The report is “intended to focus public attention on the requirement to have a national level discussion on the Muslim Brotherhood and its role in Canada,” said Tom Quiggin, the former Privy Council intelligence analyst who authored the study.

Mr. Quiggin, a court-recognized expert on terrorism, wrote the study without government or private funding. “Questions need to be raised about the accreditation, public funding and charity status of the organizations involved,” he said.

The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in the 1920s by the Egyptian cleric Hassan Al-Banna, whose writings were hostile to the West and envisioned its downfall, proposing instead a “world living under the tranquility of Islam.”

To achieve this, he called for reforms that included mandatory memorization of the Koran in schools, igniting “the spirit of Islamic jihad” in youths, censorship of music and films, and confiscation of books and newspapers.

Almost a century later, the Muslim Brotherhood is a controversial revivalist movement and political party in the Middle East. It is facing a crackdown in its home base, Egypt, following the ouster of Mohamed Hersi by the military.

Last month, British Prime Minister David Cameron ordered an investigation into the Brotherhood’s activities in the U.K. and alleged links to violence and extremism. In Canada, the government has not taken action directly against the Brotherhood.

“We are aware that the U.K. is doing a review on the MB. We will be determining any possible next steps in short order,” Adam Hodge, the spokesman for Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird, told the National Post on Monday.

A senior source at the Department of Foreign Affairs recently confirmed that the Canadian government gave $5.3 million to the Syrian opposition in 2012. According to the National Post, “the entire Canadian contribution was funnelled through the U.S. State Department.” Syrian opposition leader Hassan Hachimi told the National Post that the money was spent on communication equipment.

The report comes a month after Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney announced the International Relief Fund for the Afflicted and Needy — Canada (IRFAN) had been placed on Ottawa’s list of banned terrorist groups. According to the Canada Revenue Agency, IRFAN had merged with the Jerusalem Fund for Human Services, which was allegedly set up by a Muslim Brotherhood committee.

IRFAN had funnelled $15-million to groups linked to Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestinian branch, auditors claimed. IRFAN was a registered charity at the time but has since had its status revoked. The RCMP is investigating. IRFAN denies knowingly funding Hamas.

Ihsaan Gardee, executive director of the National Council of Canadian Muslims, declined to comment on what he called a “foreign political organization.” But he said the NCCM was not affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood.

Writing in the Winnipeg Free Press on May 16, Mr. Gardee called an article about the Muslim Brotherhood co-authored by Mr. Quiggin a “conspiracy-laden diatribe that, in a sweeping stroke, smeared our long-standing Canadian organization as ‘terrorists’ and despicably suggested we intend to destroy Canada from within.”

Mr. Quiggin’s report lists several other Canadian organizations — some of them federally-regulated charities — that he says are aligned with the Muslim Brotherhood. Key executives in some of them have left Canada to take positions with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Syria, he writes.

“The government of Canada may wish to pursue a wider investigation into the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood with a particular focus on its activities in Canada and the USA. Cooperation or information sharing with the proposed investigation in the United Kingdom may be useful,” the report says.

Such a probe should examine which Canadian groups with Muslim Brotherhood affiliations have charity status and access to the government, it says. The Canada Border Services Agency may also want to screen foreign nationals for membership in the Brotherhood.

It also recommends the government consider requiring those advocating the spread of Muslim Brotherhood ideology to register as lobbyists. In addition, the report says charities receiving funding from overseas should be required to publicly report the sources of their foreign donations.
