01) VIP paedophile accuser ‘Nick’ travelled the world lecturing about abuse and claims to have worked for Childline

“The alleged fantasist whose allegations sparked the VIP paedophile investigation claims to have worked as a volunteer for Childline, The Telegraph can reveal.

Nick – whose real identity cannot be revealed for legal reasons – told the organisers of an international conference at which he was speaking – that he had worked for the charity, offering advice to youngsters suffering abuse themselves.

[…]

The anonymity ruling can only be lifted by a court order and remains in place even though Nick is currently facing possible charges for allegedly lying about his ordeal.

Following a lengthy investigation by Northumbria Police, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) is considering whether to prosecute him for perverting the course of justice.

He could also face prosecution for fraud after it emerged that he had received thousands of pounds from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).

Scotland Yard launched its ill-fated Operation Midland investigation in November 2014 after Nick went to police claiming to have been raped and abused by VIP paedophile ring in the late 1970s and 1980s.

He also alleged that he had witnessed the murder of a number of young boys at the hands of the group.”

…Gee…What a “shocker”…

…The Dolphin Square story, which has hurt a lot of people, is falling apart…and the guy at it’s core is exposed for a liar, who was financially cashing in on his treachery.

…Being a fake sex abuse victim, can be quite lucrative…apparently.

You know…I think about all those people who were calling us names, and cursing at us…because our B.S. alarms were going off, in spades…

…Now, here we are…a handful of years later…

…And who was right?

…This “scandal” had “Bull Shit!” written all over it, right from the beginning…

The problem is…there was this pre-existing group of loonies, who wanted anything like this to surface, so they would have anything to hold up as proof…of some larger, I don’t even know what…something that murders, tortures and destroys children…

…They’re so desperate, they’re willing to accept nothing of consequence, as “proof”…

…They just want their phobias validated…that is all…

…The don’t give a flying fart, about the objective facts.

“Ajit Pai thinks he won, and that his repeal of net neutrality will demoralize open internet activists. He’s wrong. His undemocratic, unethical act has reinvigorated the nationwide movement for public broadband; a permanent solution that would guarantee net neutrality remains intact, forever. In this segment we’ll discuss what you need to do to get public broadband in your county.

01) Hillary Clinton’s Team Ignored & Mocked Warnings From Bernie Sanders’ Strategists


“Strategists from Bernie Sanders’ campaign explain how they tried to warn Hillary Clinton’s team that their general election strategy was going to be conducive to a President Trump, but in spite of numerous attempts to offer them advice, Sanders’ team was “f*cking ignored” and even “mocked.” Rather than listening to Bernie Sanders’ campaign insiders, Clinton’s team would only include them in on conference calls where they were told the “top three talking points about Hillary’s email server or something.” As a result of this hubris, well… we all know what happened.

“Kentucky lawmaker Dan Johnson fatally shot himself Wednesday, two days after allegations surfaced that he had molested a member of his church when she was 17 years old, officials said.

Bullitt County Coroner Dave Billings said Johnson — a Republican state representative and self-proclaimed “Pope” of his Louisville church — died of “a penetrating gunshot wound to the head.”
The authorities found Johnson’s body Wednesday night after responding to a report about a concerning statement on his Facebook page. Officials had tracked the lawmaker’s phone to his location, near a bridge in Mount Washington, Ky., in a spot called the River Bottoms.”

Fentanyl Is KILLING America, Life Expectancy Dropping…

01) Fentanyl Is KILLING America, Life Expectancy Dropping

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Thursday reported that the life expectancy in the U.S. decreased in 2016 for the second year in a row.

According to the CDC’s 2016 mortality report, the life expectancy for a member of the U.S. population born in 2016 was 78.6 years, down 0.1 years from the expectancy for a person born in 2015, itself a decline from 2014.

The government figures released Thursday put drug deaths at 63,600, up from about 52,000 in 2015. For the first time, the powerful painkiller fentanyl and its close opioid cousins played a bigger role in the deaths than any other legal or illegal drug, surpassing prescription pain pills and heroin.”This is urgent and deadly,” said Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The opioid epidemic “clearly has a huge impact on our entire society.”

Two-thirds of last year’s drug deaths — about 42,000 — involved opioids, a category that includes heroin, methadone, prescription pain pills like OxyContin, and fentanyl. Fatal overdoses that involved fentanyl and fentanyl-like drugs doubled in one year, to more than 19,000, mostly from illegally made pills or powder, which is often mixed with heroin or other drugs.”

01) Don’t shield students from opinions they don’t agree with, universities minister Jo Johnson warns

“Students must not be shielded from views they disagree with under the banner of “safe spaces”, the universities minister has said, as he warns that the practise is “closing minds”.

The “worrying” trend of students seeking to “stifle” opinions that are counter to their own has swept across American campuses and is now gathering pace at British universities, Jo Johnson will say on Tuesday.

In a speech at the Limmud Festival in Birmingham, a celebration of Jewish learning and culture, he will warn that free speech is a key part of university life.

He said that the new regulator for higher education, the Office for Students (OFS), will crack down on universities that fail to adequately safeguard free speech.

The watchdog will have new powers to punish universities which fall short, which could include fines or even being deregistered, which would effectively render them unable to operate.

Mr Johnson will say that free speech must not be used as a smokescreen by those who wish to limit the expression of others.”

It’s an astonishingly stupid behavior, to censor open speech and dialogue.

The answer to “bad speech”, is more speech.

That so many universities have lost touch with this fundamental principle, is just staggering.

Ask An Atheist: Is There “Room at the Inn” for nonreligion?…

01) Ask An Atheist: Is There “Room at the Inn” for nonreligion?


“FFRF Staff Attorneys Liz Cavell, Sam Grover and Ryan Jayne will be discussing if Nativity Scenes on government property are constitutional. We will also talk about how to counter Nativity Scenes.”

I’ve never had an issue with the nativity scene. Which makes this a difficult issue.

I don’t want to see it go…Yet, I also agree that other groups commemorating the season, should be just as welcome there.

I see no issue with governments having a time and place, for an open platform to seasonal commemorations…religious, and not…so long as they are not playing favorites.

…which is where the “protest” element of this whole thing, becomes kind of…no longer in my better graces.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation has a tendency, to get on a lot of people’s nerves this way.

No doubt…a lot of what they do, is justified…

…But some of it is honestly just trivial.
