David Cameron chokes back tears as he QUITS in the wake of the historic Brexit vote in referendum

The developments came after the Leave campaign stacked up 52 per cent of the votes - despite massive support for Remain in Scotland and major cities including London.

The Bank of England governor Mark Carney has attempted to reassure panicking markets this morning after the Pound nose-dived to its lowest level against the US dollar for 31 years, and the FTSE slumped by 8 per cent.

Flanked by wife Samantha in Downing Street, Mr Cameron said he had been 'proud' to serve as PM for the past six years.

But he said it would not be right for him to be the 'captain of the ship' while the UK negotiated its exit from the EU.

On issues that matter, Harper was right

You don't have to have voted for Stephen Harper in last month's federal election to understand that, on the big issues that matter, Canada's former prime minister got things right.

That, in the wake of last weekend's wave of deadly ISIS terrorist attacks in Paris, the one leader in last month's election campaign who emphasized that in addition to the economy, security was our most important concern, was right.

That the one leader who said that being prime minister meant making "the difficult decisions necessary to protect our country's security," was right.

Gabriele Kuby's The Global Sexual Revolution: a must-read book in defence of the family

Published this week is the first English translation of The Global Sexual Revolution: the Destruction of Freedom in the Name of Freedom, which details and dissects the insidious and totalitarian promotion by cultural elites and governments of sexual perversity and the destruction of the traditional Christian family. The author is Gabriele Kuby, a sociologist and adult convert to Christianity whom Pope Benedict XVI described as "a brave warrior against ideologies that ultimately result in the destruction of man."

Benedict's comment (found in the preface to the original edition published in German and translated in the new version) reminds us chillingly how far those ideologies have advanced - to the very doors of the Vatican - in a short time since his resignation.

Kuby's grand and magisterial sweep of a book does not need an update, but the new edition does provide a survey of cases in Europe and the U.S. of government enforcement of the new sexual ideology with fines, threats, and actual imprisonments of Christian holdouts.

French Jews removing their children from public schools for fear of anti-Semitism

In a recent video by VICE News, Robert Ejness, the head of the French Jewish community's umbrella organisation said that Jews "are very worried and they are questioning the future of their children in this country."

He explained that in 1970 only 7,000 French children attended Jewish schools. Today, there are 35,000 Jewish children in Jewish schools in France. On top of that, another 35,000 Jewish children attend private Christian schools, showing that the Christian school environment is safe and welcoming for Jewish children.

"One of the issues," Ejness explains "is the integration of the Muslim population, essentially the Muslim population that has arrived in France in the last 20 or 30 years, which has not been integrated, which has refused also to be integrated in the French system."

Woman throws molotov cocktail at pro-life activists outside Planned Parenthood

Last night at an Austin Planned Parenthood abortion facility, a woman threw a Molotov cocktail (a type of homemade bomb) at a group of Central Texas Coalition for Life prayer volunteers. One of the volunteers was able to quickly stomp out the flame and save the group from any danger. The group was able to record the woman's license plate number and turn that information over to the police. Police did arrest the woman who threw the bomb directly at the prayer volunteers.

Central Texas Coalition for Life Executive Director Heather Gardner responded last night. "We are so thankful that none of our courageous volunteers were injured during the incident. Because of their quick actions, the woman responsible was apprehended and will be held accountable."

Swedish politician says ISIS terrorists are the 'victims'

Muslims traveling from Sweden to the Middle East to commit mass murder and rape in the Islamic state, are "victims of violence", says the new Moderate leader Anna Kinberg Batra, to the newspaper Expressen.

It's in an interview during the international summit in Davos as Kinberg Batra is asked how she wants to meet the Swedes growing concern for acts of terrorism committed by returning IS-terrorists.

The important thing is that there must be fewer who can become victims of violence. To be enlisted as a warrior to exercise deadly force is actually being victims of violence and to contribute to the spread in the world, says the M-top to Expressen.

Media Blacks Out New Snowden Interview The Government Doesn't Want You to See

This past Sunday evening former NSA contractor Edward Snowden sat down for an interview with German television network ARD. The interview has been intentionally blocked from the US public, with virtually no major broadcast news outlets covering this story. In addition, the video has been taken down almost immediately every time it’s posted on YouTube.

In contrast, this was treated as a major political event in both print and broadcast media, in Germany, and across much of the world. In the interview, Mr. Snowden lays out a succinct case as to how these domestic surveillance programs undermine and erode human rights and democratic freedom.

Pro-life bench trashed again

Peterborough Pro-Life's bench-ad on Water Street just south of Trent University and across from Tim Hortons was trashed on Tuesday night, December 8. This is the third time this bench has been vandalized. The first time, the vandals spray-painted the contact telephone number for the help line. The second time, the culprits gouged out the eyes of the baby in the picture.  This latest attack left the message on the sign blacked out by the words "Pro choice'. Some words were also painted over leaving the statement, "Take my Life". Vandalism is itself a crime but I wonder if this might even be considered a hate crime.

The bench is directed toward women who are contemplating abortion to end the life of their unborn little one. Featured is the picture of a young baby with its hand extended toward a caption: "Take my hand not my life". The sign also provides a national '800' number answered by the Crisis Pregnancy Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba. They can help the mother to find emergency support facilities in the municipality from where she is calling.

Tens of thousands march for end of abortion in Washington on Roe anniversary

WASHINGTON, D.C., January 22, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Tens of thousands of pro-life activists endured frigid temperatures and a snow storm Wednesday as they gathered at the National Mall in Washington, D.C., to mark the 41st anniversary of the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling that has prepared the way for an estimated 56 million abortions.

In past years the march has drawn crowds estimated between 400,000 and 650,000. However, the winter storm that blew through Washington on Tuesday led to cancellations of numerous buses and planes, creating a visible drop in numbers at this year's rally and march. The Philadelphia archdiocese, for instance, canceled all of their buses.
