homeless and hungry? YELLOW CARD!

Humberside Police will be operating a "two-strikes-and-you're-out" policy, which will see officers handing out warning cards to beggars in the Avenues, Beverley Road and Spring Bank.

WARNING:  Police officers will hand out warning cards to beggars in the Avenues, Beverley Road and Spring Bank.

Similar to a yellow card handed out to players during a football match, beggars who have been given one already will be promptly arrested if they are caught a second time.
Inspector Craig Mattinson hopes it will rid the area of street drinking and begging, which many people find intimidating.
He said: "Street drinking and begging have continued to be a problem in the area.
"We are now looking at plans where we will issue a card to each person found drinking or begging, which points out different support services that can be accessed.
"It is one chance and one chance only policy.
"If people fail to make use of the services available, they will be arrested."
Several businesses and residents in Princes Avenue and Newland Avenue have complained about the problem of begging in previous weeks, with Sainsbury's Local in Princes Avenue and Bargain Beers in Newland Avenue named as hotspots.
Police say there are about 20 "hardcore beggars" in the Avenues alone, up to six of whom are not homeless.
PC Andy White insists begging for money "will not be tolerated", especially if they have a place to call home.
"These people are choosing to sit there and beg for money when they have a place to live," he said.
"It is not on and will not be tolerated."
Insp Mattinson also confirmed two additional PCSOs will make regular patrols of the area.
He said: "I know the ward councillors have been bombarded with complaints about the issue, so I think this is something we can do to help. Overall, I think it's a positive move for the area."
Councillor Marjorie Brabazon, chair of the Wyke Area Committee, where Insp Mattinson announced the plans, welcomed the new card scheme.
She said: "It's really good to hear that positive steps are being taken to tackle the issue.
"It's a really good idea and I think it will work. I'm sure the public will be grateful for the initiative."
But some councillors, including Mike Ross and Gwen Lunn, have questioned the idea.
Cllr Lunn, of Newland ward, has been trying to tackle begging and drinking in Newland Avenue with her proposal for signs in five languages telling people not to drink.
She said: "It's one thing giving beggars a card, but there has to be more to it than that.
"How can we make sure people are engaging with the services?"
However, Insp Mattinson defended his plans. He said: "We can catch the same people begging five or six times in a week.
"We point out where they can access services, but it is very rare that they make the most of them.
"This way, they know they have to go to facilities like Westbourne House or face being arrested.
"Then we are relying on the courts to issue behaviour orders, which tell people to work with the services available or go to prison."
The proposals are to be implemented immediately.

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’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 …
