backers Tom Gordon Scottish Political Editor Sunday 11 January 2015 THE peer who predicted devolution would kill nationalism "stone dead", a businessman who went to court to gag an SNP councillor, and a supporter of ill-fated leader Wendy Alexander are among the donors who bankrolled Jim Murphy's bid to be Scottish Labour's new boss, it has emerged. Lord George Robertson, the hawkish former general secretary of Nato who last year said Scottish independence would be "cataclysmic", gave Murphy's leadership bid £2000, it has emerged. Alan Massie, a businessman from Aberdeen who took out an interdict against a local Nationalist councillor, and who gave £15,000 to the Better Together campaign in the referendum, gave £14,500. John McGuire, boss of the Paisley-based Phoenix Car Company, who helped fund ­Alexander's doomed leadership in 2007, gave £20,000.

George Orwell and Big Brother's war on Palestine, Ukraine and the truth In politics as in journalism and the arts, it seems that dissent once tolerated in the "mainstream" has regressed to a dissidence: . a metaphoric underground. Today's grand illusion is of an information age when, in truth, we live in a media age in which incessant corporate propaganda is insidious, contagious, effective and liberal. The other night, I saw George Orwell's "1984" performed on stage. Although crying out for a contemporary interpretation, Orwell's warning about the future was presented as a period piece: remote, unthreatening, almost reassuring. It was as if Edward Snowden had revealed nothing, Big Brother was not now a digital eavesdropper and Orwell himself had never said, "To be corrupted by totalitarianism, one does not have to live in a totalitarian country." Acclaimed by critics, the skillful production was a measure of our cultural and political times. When the lights came up, people were already on their way out. ...

I know that Jordan is going to fall a Muslim Brotherhood type group, so this could be it. They are following Muhammad and the Koran by cutting heads off along with hands and feet. This tactics are right out of the Koran for dealing with the infidels. Remember, the terror and fighting you see now is eventually all heading in attempt to destroy Israel and take Jerusalem for allah. This will be the doom of Islam. The Holy God of Israel will destroy these armies and break the back of Islam. Islam does not have much longer. The end time antichrist religion is classic paganism and not Islam.

The West is now in the process of treating real Christians the way the Nazis treated the Jews. I see the mentality in the West the same as the Jews of the 1930s. The Jews were mentally defeated by the attacks of society and went passively to their deaths. I see Christians now under the same process of the Jews and have very little will to resist the spirit of antichrist that is rising. Our strength is in the Lord and turning to Him in repentance along with an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. The church, for the most part, is not doing this but is becoming more passive and thus subject to slaughter as were the Jews. It is happening to the church NOW. This is not way off in the future, but right NOW you are being setup by the reprobates for slaughter. This can be stopped by crying out to the Lord for mercy and help. Why will the church not do this? Is there any fear of God left among God's people? "After villainization comes criminalization.

Crashing through a glass ceiling is always painful, but having crashed through it, I think it will be easier for the next woman who comes along. Few politicians in a western democracy have endured such personal abuse as Gillard, whose three-year term as Prime Minister ended in June amid a welter of recrimination about the nature of Australian society and its treatment of women in top jobs. But the Welsh-born lawyer did not go down without a fight. When Julia Gillard sat down at the end of her lacerating attack on “misogyny” in politics last year, it was seen as a moment of catharsis. Some women cheered, some cried; others saw it as the former Australian premier’s political death warrant. A year later she is out of office and politics – but insisting that ...

Escape plan - Watch it ,if you are Stallone and Arnold Fan . Good -their camaraderie , Premise/story. Bad -direction,screenplay AND action(that was a shock, given that you have 2 Hollywood action icons) . O/a good due to SS and AS. Actually AS is the 2nd lead.
