As the United States continues its descent into a wildly liberal hell in which the freedom of speech is being constantly eroded, Britain has taken a massive step in the right direction.
With the recent passage of the so-called “Brexit” bill, Britain is set to remove itself from the globalist-modeled European Union and the constraints of their oppressive regime. With that move, Britain can now focus on their sovereignty and their citizens’ rights…including free speech.
“In a move that could have wide-reaching implications on U.K. campuses, British universities will be instructed to uphold freedom of speech as a ‘legal duty.’
“Jo Johnson, British Minister of State for Universities and Science has written to universities informing them that they will be expected to uphold free speech for their students, faculty, and visiting guests. The move is being described as a response to the rise of ‘safe spaces’ and other forms of censorship in higher education.
“According to Johnson, this means that the use of universities facilities cannot be ‘denied to any individual or body on any grounds connected with their beliefs or views, policy or objective.’
“’As part of this, the government proposes to raise the issue of freedom of speech, with a view to ensuring that a principle underscoring the importance of free speech in higher education is given due consideration,’ Johnson wrote.”
Brexit has been a flashpoint for the history of the European Union, with referendums being introduced in several countries who could possibly be vying for their freedom in the next few years.

There are no greater visions of revival outside the scriptures than those of the open air preaching of England. Men like Wesley’s, Whitfield, and others called their countrymen to repentance. Many were saved, even though most of what they preached was not well accepted in their day.
It is no surprise that this situation is returning to England. But, now the preaching is illegal. Open air “preaching” must be non-offensive. Do not scare or alarm the sinner. And two men are finding out just how expensive it can be offending someone in Britain.
Christian News reports
Two street preachers who were arrested last July on accusations of “causing a disturbance” and engaging in “anti-social behavior” after some listeners became offended by their speech about issues such as Islam, Buddhism, homosexuality and divorce have been found guilty of “intentionally alarming” the public with open-air preaching.
The verdict against Michael Overd of the U.K. and Michael Stockwell of the U.S. was handed down Tuesday in Bristol Magistrates’ Court. They were fined $4202.98 each.
What this verdict means is that there will be a second thought for those preaching. Whether they are completely honest when asked about forgiveness will have to be weighed in their minds. Will it be worth the cost?
The Liberal government of Britain does not want the gospel to be given, unfiltered to the people. They do not mind that they be Christian, as long as it is in title only. True repentance in England would likely mean the thieves/politicians would be out on their bums.
So much for freedom of speech.
Brexit – Making Great Britain Great Again

According to the report, these Muslim migrants started yelling at British citizens for ‘waving the flag’. With the new arrivals of Syrian refugees here in America, how long do you think it will take for something like this to happen?

Do you trust our government to do a thorough job of screening these refugees to make sure they’re not ISIS terrorists?
The first Syrian refugees admitted into the country under President Barack Obama’s contested resettlement program arrived in Missouri Wednesday from Jordan, where they had lived for three years after fleeing the Syrian civil war.
“I am ready to integrate in the U.S. and start a new life,” Ahmad al-Abboud, 45, told the Associated Press, as he and his wife and five kids boarded a plane for Kansas City — their new home.
The Obama administration plans to accept an extra 45,000 refugees in the next two years, including a minimum of 10,000 Syrian refugees by September, 2016, which will increase the annual total to at least 200,000 refugees. Most of the Syrian refugees will be resettled from Jordan, according to the regional refugee coordinator at the U.S. Embassy in its capital of Amman, where the family had been living.
“The 10,000 [figure] is a floor and not a ceiling,” the coordinator, Gina Kassem, told the Associated Press. “And it is possible to increase the number.”
Resettling the additional refugees will cost billions of dollars in welfare, education and entitlement costs. A recent analysis of government data found more than 90 percent of Middle Eastern refugees are on food stamps and more than 70 percent receive free healthcare.

In a speech delivered on Tuesday at the 37th Zionist Congress, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made waves when he discussed the relationship between Nazi leader Adolf Hitler and the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini.
“Hitler didn’t want to exterminate the Jews at the time, he wanted to expel the Jews. And Haj Amin al-Husseini went to Hitler and said, ‘If you expel them, they’ll all come here.’ ‘So what should I do with them?’ he asked. He said, ‘Burn them.’”
The New York Times headline declared, “Netanyahu Draws Broad Criticism After Saying a Palestinian Inspired Holocaust.”
The Guardian published a piece titled, “Anger at Netanyahu claim Palestinian grand mufti inspired Holocaust.”
Countless other mainstream media outlets followed suit, piling on criticism of Netanyahu.
Many media outlets insisted on referring to Husseini as a Palestinian, despite the fact that the leader of the Arabs in British Mandate Palestine would never have been referred to as a Palestinian because that title was sometimes reserved for the Jews living there. In fact, it was PLO leader and Egyptian-born Yasser Arafat who was widely recognized as one of the first leaders of the Palestinian movement, which began as a result of the Arabs’ defeat in the Arab-Israeli war in 1967.
A member of the PLO Executive Committee admitted as much in a 1977 interview when he said: “The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity.”
Netanyahu later clarified that his greater point was to say that, far before the concept of an Arab-Muslim Palestinian ever existed or before the modern state of Israel was declared, Islamic leaders in the land still sought to eliminate the Jews.
“My intention was not to absolve Hitler of his responsibility,” he later explained. “But rather to show that the forefathers of the Palestinian nation, without a country and without the so-called occupation, without land and without settlements, even then aspired to systematic incitement to exterminate the Jews.”
“Hitler was responsible for the Final Solution to exterminate six million Jews; he made the decision,” a statement from the Israeli Prime Minister’s office added. “It is equally absurd to ignore the role played by the mufti, Haj Amin al -Husseini, a war criminal, for encouraging and urging Hitler.”
The Israeli Prime Minister is speaking of the same Mufti who once said, broadcasting in Arabic from Berlin, “Kill the Jews wherever you find them – this is Allah’s will.”
Whether or not the Mufti actually convinced Hitler to go forward with his plans is a fair topic for debate.
However, the Mufti did support and encourage Hitler in his quest for worldwide Jewish extermination, as proven through historical transcripts provided by the U.S. Holocaust Museum.
In November 1941, the two leaders met in Berlin to discuss the future of the Jewish people living in British Mandate Palestine. Hitler told Husseini that the “struggle against a Jewish homeland in Palestine” would be part of his larger efforts against the Jews. Hitler assured him that when the German army advanced on the Middle East, he would announce to the Arab world that “the hour of liberation is at hand.” Their only goal, Hitler said, “would be the annihilation of Jewry living in Arab space under the protection of British power.”
Moreover, according to the prosecution team during the Nuremberg trials, the Mufti did indeed play a role in facilitating the annihilation of European Jews.
“The Mufti was one of the initiators of the systematic extermination of European Jewry for the Germans and had been the permanent collaborator and advisor of Eichmann and Himmler in the execution of the plan… According to my opinion, the Grand Mufti, who had been in Berlin since 1941, played a role in the decision of the German government to exterminate the European Jews,” an SS officer admitted during the trials.
The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, a man who is revered by some as the founding father of the Palestinian movement, was undoubtedly a supporter of the extermination of Jews, an uncomfortable fact that the international pro-Palestinian Left has not addressed in its criticism of Netanyahu.
