The charter issued by Charles II in 1663 represents the moment at which the transatlantic slave trade officially began, with royal approval, according to the British Library which has the manuscript in its collection.

 

I know Mac, your gonna tell me the British Royal Family have always been Jewish, so it was still the Jews that started the Transatlantic Slave Trade.

 

I wouldn't say that the royals have always been jewish no but the father of charles II lost his head because of his claim to have a 'divine right to rule' which came from the stewarts claim to be of the lineage of king david of the bible. Charles I was the son of the scottish king James VI who became king of england as well with the union of the crowns in 1603. If you are looking for the point at which they became jewish then i would suggest that it was when robert the bruce took the throne and that his descendent who came in with william the conqueror was likely jewish. William the conquerors invasion of britain was bankrolled by the jews of rouen just as william of oranges invasion of britain in 1688 was bankrolled by the jews of amsterdam.

 

Is that crazy talk? No not at all when we understand that freemasonry in scotland came from the knights templar and the templars were crypto-jewish bloodline families.

 

''the Lodge petitioned by King James VI of Scotland (Later the First of England and instigator of the King James Bible) to enter Freemasonry at the age of 34: “King James VI, by his own desire was entered ffireman, measone, and Fellow of Craft of the Lodge….during all his lifetime he mantayned the same as ane member of the Lodge of Scoon, so that this Lodge is the most famous Lodge (iff well ordered) within the Kingdome.” This in an interesting claim, since it would fit well with the fact that his grandson, James II, after being expelled from the English throne for being a Roman Catholic, settled in France and issued Masonic Charters on the strength of his claim to be Grand Master of Masons. Whether we believe either or both of these hotly-debated claims, there is a most interesting picture of King James VI’s initiation hanging in the Lodge Room.''

Piers Corbyn seems to be running for Mayor of London, but still needs our help. 

 

"People - All friends and supporters! We've got great news. 

Piers is running for Mayor of London as PEACE NOW London. The election is 2nd May 2024 and your vital urgent support is needed NOW, Please. 

 

This Election campaign is DIFFERENT from all others. 

We are running on THE SINGLE ISSUE OF THE MOMENT - PEACE NOW - because if the escalating bloodshed in the world is not stopped it will reach everywhere and dominate everything and all other issues become irrelevant. 


Furthermore THIS CAMPAIGN will defeat the MSM and political Circus manipulators who are hell-bent on creating a DIVISIVE moslems/ethnics vs the rest election. OUR Campaign breaks their story because we point out the self-appointed champions of those attacked by media, ie the Labour Party and their London Mayor, are key promoters of Bloodshed and apologists for warmingers who are killing the groups they pretend to support. 

 

See many videos from Piers such as at Speakers Corner on his birthday 10 March: 
https://t.me/Pierscorbyn/4558

 

WE have a single UNIFYING agenda for all the peace-loving people of London: PEACE NOW, STOP THE BLOODSHED.

 

Find us on Telegram: https://t.me/PeaceNowLondon

 

Join us on WhatsApp: https://chat.whatsapp.com/Dv3zWKyKi1d4ZRXkjfAFVn 

 

The party is: Peace Now London, and our manifesto (attached) is simple: Tax all the Warmongers and supporting activity in Greater London.

 

HOW IS Piers going to do that?

Taxi cabs are licenced aren't they?

You can't be a London Taxi unless you are licenced. Gotta declare who you are, fill in the form, pay all the fees.

 

So the same for Warmongers.

They must apply for a Warmongers licence, fill in a detailed form, Pay for the Licence.

No Fees, No licence. Expressly forbidden to trade in Greater London. Heavy fines for non-compliance.

Make war unprofitable for London Warmongers - Just like they Tax CO2 to make productive businesses and work unprofitable! 

 

We need help from everyone of you with two things urgently:

1) Helping collect nominations for Piers to stand - 10 for each of the 32 boroughs plus City. Text/phone Piers to help 07958713320 and see action schedules on telegram eg  https://t.me/Pierscorbyn 

 

2) Funds, £25,000 approx to register. WE need substantial funds or commitments by Thurs 14 / Frid15 March and sufficient funds in the following few days. Nominations close 27th March but it must be sorted before that. GIVE NOW and seek large donors. We can and must do it.

The Jury System on Trial.

 

The massive backlog in court cases due to the coronavirus ‘pandemic’ led some to suggest that trials should be held without juries to speed up the legal process.

   

The traditional ‘12 good men and true’ (or at least 12 people) jury system, although not perfect, is being undermined, as the law – and justice - gets further and further beyond the reach of the average person. ‘Experts’ and Artificial Intelligence will inevitably dominate. International law will also dominate.

 

In February 2024, a Channel 4 series, “The Jury: Murder Trial” (aired 26th - 29th February 2024), asked the question:

 

“How much can we trust our justice system? In this landmark experiment, a real-life murder trial is restaged in front of two juries of ordinary people. Will they both reach the same verdict?” 

 

SPOILER ALERT!!! They didn’t. 

 

The series was produced by SCREENDOG PRODUCTIONS, who wrote:  

 

“The British jury system – judgement by twelve of one’s peers – is shrouded in secrecy, but does that only serve to cover up flaws in the system? The Jury: Murder Trial will examine the jury system for the first time on British television by recreating an entire, real murder trial from the original transcripts in front of two randomly selected juries, neither of whom are aware of the other.” 

 

“Juries are a cornerstone of British justice, but studies have suggested that up to a quarter of juries’ verdicts may be susceptible to inaccuracies influenced by a range of factors beyond objective evidence, and that most jurors – ordinary people who are often in court for the first time - do not understand all the points of law they are supposed to be judging upon. The secrecy that surrounds jury verdicts – in the UK, they are forbidden from sharing their reasoning – means furthermore that it is impossible to check the soundness of the decision-making.”

Looks like Owen Jones is going down the Green path.

 

"Left-wing activist Owen Jones says he has cancelled his Labour membership and is urging voters to back Green or independent candidates instead.

The Guardian columnist has been a vocal critic of Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer.

In an article for the newspaper, he said a new initiative was being launched to raise money for candidates "seeking transformative policies".

The Labour Party has been approached for comment.

Mr Jones said "those who believe in real change from the Tories' bankrupt model should vote for Green or independent candidates".

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-68622127

 

"What is 'We Deserve Better', the group Owen Jones has left Labour for?"

 

"He urged readers to “send Labour a message” by signing up to a new group called We Deserve Better.

We take a look at what the group is, what its plans are and reaction to Jones’ exit from the party."

 

"Who else is backing We Deserve Better?
While Owen Jones is the most high-profile supporter, with his video proclaiming his departure from Labour featuring prominently on its website, the group says it has a committee of three members.

They are Fatima-Zahra Ibrahim, a senior figure in the Green New Deal Rising group, British-Palestinian journalist Hamza Ali Shah, and Amna Abdullatif, an independent councillor in Manchester. The latter quit the Labour Party in October last year after she claimed Keir Starmer had “effectively endorsed a war crime” in comments he made to LBC.

We Deserve Better’s website says it is based at Pelican House in east London. The site is also used by Labour left campaign group Momentum, The Centre for Progressive Change, Green New Deal Rising and other organisations."

 

https://labourlist.org/2024/03/owen-jones-labour-we-deserve-better-socialist-progressive/

 

Green New Deal Rising 

 

"Our principles
1. We are a movement fighting to stop climate change and win a Green New Deal.
We are building an unstoppable movement that will make the Green New Deal an era defining issue and fight for a new system in which we can thrive.


2. We break the rules to disrupt the political system.
The rules are written to benefit the wealthy and powerful. We break the rules to change the narrative, disrupt the political system and force politicians to face up to the scale of the crisis."

 

https://www.gndrising.org/

 

"Green New Deal UK [ who started the above] is currently funded by the European Climate Foundation, Oak Foundation, the Gower Street Foundation, the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust and the Samworth Foundation."

The BBC Radio 4 satirical series "The Now Show" is coming to an end after 25 years, so won't be around to comment on the - presumably - new Labour government. This is reminiscent of ITV's legendary "Spitting Image" (Anti-Tory creators) which ended before Tony Blair's election in 1997.

The 12 person jury system will come under scrutiny again on a British TV public service broadcaster, just 2 weeks after Channel 4's contribution. This time it's ITV, who are scheduled to broadcast the first episode of the Australian drama "The Twelve" (March 28th), in which jurors bring their own issues and biases to the proceedings.
