Senator: I was called a Nazi and threatened with rape for supporting Palestine

FIANNA FÁIL SENATOR Averil Power said she received a rape threat as a result of her support for a Seanad motion recognising the state of Palestine last year.
Power spoke to TheJournal.ie yesterday about how she had been called a Nazi and anti-Semite for her support of the Palestinian people. She insisted the issue has nothing to do with religion for her, describing it as a “land grab” pure and simple.
Watch Power discuss the threat she received and how she dealt with it:

The leadership question

Elsewhere in the course of her wide-ranging interview with TheJournal.ie yesterday, Power talked about the leadership of Micheál Martin.
Power admitted Leinster House can be a bit of  a ”a men’s locker room” at times, and said ensuring more women are on the ballot paper will require “leadership”.
So, what does she make of Fianna Fáil’s current leader?
Fianna Fáil is hoping to have up to 27 female candidates in the next general election. All parties are required to have at least 30% women on the ballot paper or else face losing half of their exchequer funding.
The party currently has no female TDs and Power has put her name forward for selection in the new constituency Dublin Bay North. She will face stiff competition from former junior minister Sean Haughey (son of Charlie) and Councillor Deirdre Heney.
Power said that quotas are “a last resort” but necessary to increase the level of female representation in the Dáil above the current 16% – the highest level it has ever been.

Lord Justice Fulford was named last year as an adviser to the QueenHe was a key backer of the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange Police suspect the group of abusing children on an ‘industrial scale’He is revealed as a founder member of campaign to defend PIEAt the time it was calling for the age of consent to be lowered to just fourI clashed with Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) global leaders at the Wales conference in Swansea in 1977. Tom O’Carroll is still accepted and active on a sexnet chat group of experts in “sexology” although he writes openly as a pedophile. And the scholarly organizers of the Swansea conference at the University were part of his efforts. Below a summary of my intro to him in my book, Stolen Honor, Stolen Innocence, 2013. This academic pedophile lobby has continued and grown, training second generation and third generation supporters as “scholars” for pedophile equality and “rights.” In 1981 I realized they were global.

Jews in Israel call for genocide of Palestinians in a massive rally ignored by the media

The West’s media—under orders to censor any news of Jewish supremacism—has refused to publicise this week’s massive hate rally attended by thousands of Jews in Tel Aviv which called for all Arabs to be killed. The Western media’s blackout is in marked contrast to their blanket coverage of the tiniest example of what it calls “white racism.” The Tel Aviv rally—organized to support an Israeli soldier who murdered a wounded Palestinian by shooting him in the head as the victim lay on his back—was marked by chants and banners calling for mass murder. The rally took place on Tuesday evening, April 19, in Tel Aviv’s Yitzhak Rabin Square, and the many thousands of Jews in the crowd were, according to reports in the Israeli media, baying for blood.
One Jewish reporter, Dan Cohen, tweeted that many in the crowd chanted, “Death to Arabs,” a frequently heard rallying cry at anti-Palestinian demonstrations. Ahmed Tibi, a Palestinian lawmaker in Israel’s parliament, posted an image of a sign displayed …

The elite's use young children's blood to live longer and so do I says Paypal Billionaire

Billionaire PayPal founder Peter Thiel said that he believes transfusions of blood from young people can reverse his ageing process and allow him to live a vastly extended lifespan.



In an interview with Inc.com’s Jeff Bercovici, Thiel said that the practice — known as parabiosis — is the closest modern science has come to creating an anti-aging panacea.

Thiel — a hedge funder who acted as a delegate for Donald Trump and spoke at the 2016 Republican National Convention — is reportedly obsessed with defying death and extending the human lifespan. He has injected funds into startups that are experimenting with ways to forestall the body’s inevitable decline and death.

“I’m looking into parabiosis stuff,” Thiel told Bercovici, “where they [injected] the young blood into older mice and they found that had a massive rejuvenating effect. … I think there are a lot of these things that have been strangely underexplored.”

Parabiosis experiments began in the 1950s with crude exercises in which rats …
