Senior Lawyers Demand ‘Difficult and Unpopular’ Actions to Replace White Males in Judiciary

Asserting that Britain’s judiciary has a “diversity deficit”, law reform group Justice called for “systemic structural changes” to the selection process including “targets with teeth” so as to “deliver sufficient diversity to the bench”.

As well as describing diversity as an “intrinsic good”, the report said the “lack of female and visible [black and ethnic minority] senior judges threatens to erode the public’s confidence in the judiciary”, warning it could be perceived to be “unfair” that in the Crown Court “those tried are disproportionately non-white, yet the judges are overwhelmingly white”.


Michael Coren says Islam tolerated Christians and saved them from extinction

Michael Coren, Toronto author, print and broadcast journalist who left the Catholic Church for Anglicanism, argues that throughout history Islam tolerated Christians, and even saved them from extinction. According to Coren, the US war in Iraq led by a Christian President and supported by Christian groups is the cause for the mass exodus of Christians from Iraq and Syria.


Google’s Schmidt: “We’re Not Arguing For Censorship, We’re Arguing Just Take It Off The Page”

“My own view on most of this sort of extremist things as well as fake news in general is that it’s essentially a ranking problem. We’re very good at detecting what’s the most relevant and what’s the least relevant. It should be possible for computers to detect malicious, misleading and incorrect information and essentially have you not see it. We’re not arguing for censorship, we’re arguing just take it off the page, put it somewhere else.”


Mayor claims conservatives have engineered the animosity against Berkeley, wonders if he were white …

Ann Coulter’s speech that was supposed to have been delivered at UC Berkeley Thursday night was canceled (allegedly for safety reasons), rescheduled by the school once a “protected venue” was found, and then canceled again, but protesters are already descending on the city.

Some banks in town, remembering what happened when rioters marched through the city after forcing the cancellation of a speech on campus by Milo Yiannopoulos, prepared for the protests by boarding up ATMs.

Can’t he just self-identify as white? If gender can change day to day, why can’t race? Whoops! Forgot race doesn’t exist. Sorry.

CIA ‘implanted microphones into CATS’ in a bizarre attempt to spy on Russia

Dubbed “Project Acoustic Kitty”, the grim £10 million programme was developed over five years in the 1960s as a novel but gruesome new eavesdropping method.

A cat’s tail was used as an antenna and a wire travelled all the way up its spine connecting to a microphone in its ear, while a battery was housed in its chest.


Shock Report: Migrants Become Less Integrated the Longer They Stay in Europe

Researchers at the Ragnar Frisch Centre for Economic Research uncovered “encouraging signs of labour market integration during an initial period upon migrants’ admission”.

But after a period of just five to 10 years, according to the report, “the integration process goes into reverse with widening immigrant-native employment differentials and rising rates of immigrant social insurance dependency”.

Oregon Man Fined $500 for ‘Unlawful’ Study That Found Yellow Stoplights Are Too Short

The Oregon State Board of Examiners for Engineering and Land Surveying hit Mats Järlström with a fine for unlawfully engaging in the “practice of engineering” by studying the state’s traffic flow systems.

Järlström, a former mechanic in the Swedish military, was slapped with the absurd penalty because his work contravenes licensing regulations in the state, according to the Institute for Justice.


Marine Le Pen could still become France’s next president, new analysis finds

Far right leader Marine Le Pen could still win the French Presidential election, even though her opponent Emmanuel Macron appears to be well ahead in opinion polls, according to a new mathematical analysis.

French physicist Serge Galam has published a fourteen-page paper which claims the Front National Leader could still win mathematically. His theory of “differentiated abstention” hinges on variation in voter turnout.

    “… deliver sufficient diversity to the bench”.
    By the law of unintended consequence, black women judges, immune from white liberal progressive guilt, will hand out harsher sentences to black and “asian” males.

    For 1400 years there was balance in the middle east. This generation is the most violent ever. Not even muslim relics are save due to the current interpretation of Islam. They did not blow up the roman Palmyra becuse of Bush.

      He is going to make a fine Anglican priest. Well, until he changes religion again.

    Michael Coren is an asshole but he is not entirely wrong. Of course it is stupid to say that “Islam tolerated and saved Christians”. What is true is Muslim leaders have tolerated and protected Christians in the ME. Saddam Hussein was one of those leaders (his foreign minister was Christian). When the war-criminal George W. Bush invaded Iraq and toppled Saddam this caused the exodus (or death) of MILLIONS of Christians in Iraq. And for what purpose were these millions of Christians displaced? For the security of Israel?

    We see the same thing happening today in Syria. The Muslim leader Assad is a secular leader who protects the Millions of Christians in Syria. He doesn’t just “tolerate” them but he and his family take part in Christian traditions such as Christmas. Once again it is America trying to topple a secular leader who protects Christians and for what purpose? To make Israel and Saudi Arabia happy? If Assad is toppled Millions of Christians will face genocide. Whatever happened to the refrain “never again” ? I guess it doesn’t apply when Christians are being exterminated.

      Christians and Jews were tolerated and protected in Muslim-majority societies because some (not all) were needed. First of all, somebody had to pay the protection tax, the jizyah and secondly, somebody had to make sure things ran smoothly and COLLECT the taxes, which of course, enriched the treasury. Jews and Christians were literate and had administrative skills so they were tolerated and protected. After all, would you kill the cow that was producing milk? As protected “citizens”, Jews and Christians were subject to a myriad of humiliations and permanent second-class status. Forgive me for using the past tense. Things have not changed. It is happening today. What do you think that this week’s OHRC case was all about?

      • Ho Hum

        This doesn’t apply to all Muslim majority countries. Christians are not second class citizens in Syria – they don’t pay a jizyah tax ditto Lebanon where Christians share political power with Muslims. Ironically it is these secular Arab countries where Christians enjoy freedom that the U.S. and Israel are trying to destroy meanwhile places like Saudi Arabia – where you can be executed for being Christian – are great “allies” of the U.S. and Israel.

        • Waffle

          Interesting that you provide Syria as an example. The post-WWI invention of Syria has been ruled by the Alawites who are considered heretics and apostates by the Shia and the Sunni who adhere to more ‘traditional’ forms of Muslim practice. And ‘secular” (sic) Lebanon is no longer Christian. While there may be a couple of tokens, it serves primarily as a proxy for Shia-ruled Iran. “Shared power” is a cute euphemism, however. I suppose dhimmitude can be powerful if viewed through a long lens.

    “‘Merit’ can all too easily become a vehicle for unconscious bias.” Yes, making judgements about a person’s qualifications for a specific job, based on merit, would be a horrible idea and discriminate against the less competent. Best to decide such things with a random number generator, perhaps.

    Hmm. or maybe the solution is to perhaps make normally unpleasant things like examinations – which discriminate against certain identity groups – into fun social events? They could be a time to party and relax, for students and teachers to interact in a non-threatening environment. Students would write their papers and then be given a score – not based on the number of correct answers, of course, but on their skin color, gender, ethnicity, etc. A diversity score! Heck, since this score could be calculated without the use of an exam, why not dispense with examinations altogether? Or classes? Or schooling? This would save society BIG money!

    And the Saturday Toronto Star. Numerous stories that Trump is Hitler, Wynne is wonderful, Trudeau is wonderful, book reviews on the finest stories about lesbians and homosexuals, and Heather Mallick is excited about Margaret Atwood’s book being put on TV. Apparently its about vaginas and Donald Trump.

    Why, Michael Coren is so knowledgeable and tolerant, let’s invite him out to a conservative get-together and see how that works out, particularly after he has some booze in him!

      Michael and Marion Two-Names were priceless back on the now defunct Sun TV on cable. As her nemeses David Menzies (the laughing pit bull) would chomp down onto some of her liberal nonsense and tear it apart, MC would do his lively chicken with its head cut off protective shtick on her behalf.
