On July 14, 2015, Australia’s 60 Minutes TV program broadcasted the first episode of a stunning exposé of a global VIP pedophile network involving the highest government officials of the UK and Australia, including members of the British Parliament, cabinet ministers, judges, diplomats and spies. And yet, nearly two years later, the broadcast caused nary a ripple. Certainly, we in the U.S. did not know about it. Heaven forbid that CBS’ 60 Minutes or any other network would actually report this or rebroadcast the Australia 60 Minutes report.

Always a few miles ahead on the road to LIBERAL hell, Sweden demonstrates:
Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven has announced that he intends to force all priests in the Swedish church to marry same-sex couples even if they disagree with gay marriage. The Swedish Prime Minister made his view clear in a recent interview saying, “no priest in the Swedish Church can refuse to marry same-sex couples.” Mr Lofven argued that it did not matter what the view of the individual priests was.

Putting out fires is no fun in places where the Third World has encroached upon civilization. The Muslim colony of Malmö is one example; welfare colonists set fires at their housing projects for the sport of stoning the Swedish firefighters who arrive to put them out. This pastime appears to be catching on in South Africa:
Cape Town firefighters have had to abandon efforts to fight a blaze which razed a community clinic in the Joe Slovo settlement in Milnerton after they were pelted with stones. The clinic was set ablaze during a service delivery protest. No matter how much Big Government provides at other people’s expense, it could never be enough for people conditioned to believe that whining and throwing tantrums will get them whatever they want. Thus the service delivery protests in South Africa.

Nowadays colleges are all about hard left indoctrination, and not only in the classroom. Even Greek life must be harnessed to the ideological yoke. Moonbats are advised of a job opening at Northwestern University:
The new “Assistant Director, Fraternity and Sorority Life” will be responsible not only for advising fraternity and sororities, responding to emergency situations, and ensuring adherence to university policies, but also for assisting in the coordination of “social justice education” programming. Minimum qualifications for the position include … “demonstrated experience” in the field of “social justice.”

Washington (CNN)In March, Sen. Claire McCaskill was unambiguous. The Missouri Democrat said she never once met with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in her 10 years serving on the Senate Armed Services Committee. "No call or meeting w/Russian ambassador. Ever," McCaskill tweeted. "Ambassadors call members of Foreign [Relations Committee]." Soon after that tweet, it was revealed she did interact with the Russian ambassador. And now, CNN has learned, McCaskill spent an evening at a black-tie reception at the ambassador's Washington residence in November 2015.

NATO have warned another cyber attack like yesterday's could prompt war with the world's armies uniting to crush the hackers.
Computer users around the world were scrambling Wednesday to reboot systems after a tidal wave of ransomware cyber attacks spread from Ukraine and Russia across Europe to the United States and then on to Asia. The attack, dubbed GoldenEye, appeared very similar but more sophisticated to the WannaCry ransomware which hit more than 200,000 users in more than 150 countries last month and is thought to have originated from a Ukrainian tax software. Jens Stoltenberg, NATO's chief, warned the alliance must step up its defence against cyber attacks, saying they could potentially trigger their Article 5 mutual defence commitment, meaning all members would join forces to tackle those responsible.

ABC News has reached a settlement with a South Dakota meat producer that filed a $1.9 billion lawsuit against the network over its reports on the company's lean, finely textured beef product that critics dubbed "pink slime," the TV network said Wednesday.
ABC spokeswoman Julie Townsend said in a statement that the network has "reached an amicable resolution of its dispute with the makers" of the beef product. Townsend said the settlement terms are confidential.
"Although we have concluded that continued litigation of this case is not in the Company's interests, we remain committed to the vigorous pursuit of truth and the consumer's right to know about the products they purchase," Townsend said.
Dakota Dunes-based Beef Products Inc. sued the television network in 2012, saying ABC's coverage misled consumers into believing the product is unsafe and led to the closure of three plants and layoffs of roughly 700 workers.

Hong Kong police on Wednesday arrested pro-democracy protesters, some of whom scrambled up a monument symbolizing the city's handover from British to Chinese rule, a day before Chinese President Xi Jinping is due to arrive for the celebrations.
Hong Kong marks the July 1, 1997, handover on Saturday, amid calls for democracy and fears of creeping influence of Communist Party leaders in Beijing undermining the "one country, two systems" formula under which it operates. The city is under lockdown, with a massive security presence expected for Xi's arrival on Friday.

The reunion of Hailey Burns with her family has brought a deluge of emotions. The the 17-year-old girl found living in a Georgia home Sunday after being missing for more than a year is now safe at her North Carolina home with her family, but her mother told local TV-station WOSC her daughter is not the same. “There are changes in my daughter,” Shaunna Burns said. “She is not the same person that left, and that is the hardest part of this.” Hailey was reported missing on May 23, 2016, after she walked out of her Ballantyne home without telling anyone where she was going, WOSC reports. She was 16-years-old. After Hailey went missing, her family alleged she had run away with a man she met online.

From Daily Mail: Thousands of people who fled to Canada to escape President Donald Trump‘s crackdown on illegal migrants have become trapped in legal limbo because of an overburdened refugee system, struggling to find work, permanent housing or enroll their children in schools. Refugee claims are taking longer to be completed than at any time in the past five years, according to previously unpublished Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB) data provided to Reuters. Those wait times are set to grow longer after the IRB in April allocated ‘up to half’ of its 127 tribunal members to focus on old cases. The number of delayed hearings more than doubled from 2015 to 2016 and is on track to increase again this year. Hearings are crucial to establishing a claimant´s legal status in Canada. Without that status, they struggle to convince employers to hire them or landlords to rent to them. Claimants cannot access loans or student financial aid, or update academic or professional credentials to meet Canadian standards.
