Would you let your kids on national service to fight ISIS?

Andy Coulson, the prime minister’s ex- communications chief, has urged David Cameron to make National Citizen Service (NCS) compulsory for British teens in a bid to combat the rise of extremism, following a five-month prison stint.

Writing for the Daily Telegraph, the former News of the World editor explained that mandatory national service would be instrumental in preventing vulnerable youth from being lured in by extremist ideology.
“You are less likely to damage or destroy something you played a part in building,” he wrote.
The NCS, which has been up and running in England since 2011, is a community-building program that encourages volunteering and social projects. Money for the program, which is part of Cameron’s ‘Big Society’ initiative, came from the government’s counter-extremism Prevent budget.
Coulson praised the program, saying it sent a positive message to“British teenagers who are now mixing outside of their ethnic, class and income groups less than they have ever done” in the aftermath of the Paris attacks.
“While bombs are being dropped abroad NCS is building bridges at home, providing crucial shared experiences at a crucial time of life among teenagers from all backgrounds,” Coulson wrote.
More than 200,000 16-year-olds have voluntarily joined the program. However, Coulson says the government must strengthen and expand the program as the threat of extremism looms large.
Speaking of his own time in HMP Belmarsh, Coulson said: “I can tell him that the risk to vulnerable, young male prisoners from all backgrounds is real. So, too, is the self-imposed segregation of some Muslim inmates who behave like a protection racket – offering safety for those young men, provided they attend Friday prayers, grow a beard and change their name.
“But a compulsory National Citizen Service would be the most significant and lasting legacy for a prime minister who, once out of office, should continue to be properly involved with it.”
Coulson resigned as Cameron’s director of communications in 2011, saying allegations of his involvement in the News of the World phone-hacking scandal had made it impossible for him to continue in his job. In 2014, he was found guilty of conspiracy to intercept voicemails and sentenced to eighteen months in prison, of which he served five.

UK Lord Justice wanted age of consent lowered to the age of 4

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 …
