Authorities claimed that the nerve agent that poisoned a double-agent spy was produced in Russia, prompting the US, UK and other European countries to impose sanctions against Russia, turning up the heat on the cold war. The UK refused to allow a chemical weapons watchdog to inspect the specimen, despite Russia’s request. Scientists at the Porton Down military research facility have been unable to establish exactly where the Novichock nerve agent used to carry out the Skripal attack was manufactured, which bolsters the suspicion that this could be a false flag attack.
The head of Germany’s 2nd largest police union, Rainer Wendt, stated that authorities should be allowed to take children away from parents who express anti-Semitic views.

Dr. Mark Griffiths, a leading surgeon in London, says that the hospitals look like “war zones due to gun and knife crime epidemic.” He said, “We used to look after people in their twenties. Now people are often in their mid to late teens and children in school uniforms are being admitted under our care with knife and gun wounds.” There have been 50 people killed in London so far this year – 50. That’s an epidemic.
