1. Tommy Robinson: Once again the media lies are exposed! #FAKENEWS
Once again The Brexit Betrayal rally has given us the opportunity to expose the lies of the mainstream media.
They run with the lies of a Labour Momentum activist, stating 15,000 people attended the counter-demonstration, subsequently outnumbering our demonstrators by 5:1.
This is despite the fact the mainstream media can see clearly from all video footage there is maximum only 1,000 counter protestors at best. They can also see clearly the massive numbers of demonstrators who attended our rally however they choose to downplay the figures.
Even today with the independent, their running headlines stating only 2,000 people attended the rally.
The media have ZERO integrity, they have tried to demonise and slander us. Is it any wonder that the public's trust in them is at all time low?

3. Socialists hatch RADICAL plan to TAKE DOWN European populism and enforce ENORMOUS taxes
A RADICAL new blueprint for Europe, spearheaded by former Jeremy Corbyn aide Thomas Piketty, has called for €800 billion (roughly £717billion) of levies to challenge the rise of populism across the continent.
Also involved in Mr Piketty’s socialist document are historians and former politicians from half a dozen countries.
The individuals intend to put pressure on multinationals, millionaires and carbon emissions by introducing enormous levies.
Mr Piketty’s “manifesto for the democratisation of Europe” states EU institutions are stuck in “a technocratic impasse” that benefits the rich.
It reads: “Following Brexit and the election of anti-European governments at the head of several member countries, it is no longer possible to continue as before.”

FLASHBACK: Terence Corcoran: The straw dogs of Thomas Piketty's capitalism
French economist Thomas Piketty is the new pied piper of the North Amercan left, and off the planet they go
While Capital was translated from the 2013 French edition and Piketty is now a professor at the Paris School of Economics, he isn’t new to North America. He taught at M.I.T. and co-authored a 2010 study on the rise of inequality in America with Emmanuel Saez, the Berkeley economist who is the leading intellectual guru of the U.S. inequality movement. Piketty and Saez are guiding lights to scores of politicians, from President Obama to Canadian Liberal MP Chrystia Freeland, Justin Trudeau’s chief economic advisor. [...]
There’s a lot in Capital, but the book has three basic foundations. There’s the Marxist Set Up, the Capitalist Straw Dog and the Utopian Tax Plan. All the rest is elaborate if sometimes fascinating filler.
4. Hamas praises “heroic” West Bank shooting attack
Terror group’s spokesman says drive-by shooting that critically injures pregnant Israeli woman and wounds 6 others affirms “legitimacy” of Palestinian resistance.
A Hamas spokesman praised the terrorist attack adjacent to the Ofra settlement in the central West Bank on Sunday in which a pregnant 21-year-old Israeli woman and six others were wounded, describing it as “heroic.”
Shots were fired from a passing car at a crowd of people who were waiting at a bus stop near the settlement. The pregnant woman was in a critical condition, and was “fighting for her life” in the hospital late Sunday. Doctors delivered her baby, which was in a stable condition.
5. May to delay vote on Brexit deal to avoid huge defeat
U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May is calling off a crucial vote in Parliament on whether to approve her Brexit deal and will head back to Brussels to seek a better offer from the European Union.
May told her Cabinet she will travel to Brussels for talks with EU leaders on Thursday and ask for better terms on the most controversial part of the withdrawal agreement -- the plan for the Irish border. She spoke to leaders by phone at the weekend, though the bloc has made clear it won’t re-open negotiations.
The vote in the House of Commons was due to be held on Tuesday evening but is now set to be rescheduled, according to people familiar with the situation.
The pound fell to the lowest since June 2017 as fears about a no-deal Brexit resurfaced. U.K. Government bonds rallied, with yields hitting the lowest since August.

7. Google’s anti-Breitbart plot: Employees targeted site’s ad revenue in 2017
Emails leaked exclusively to Breitbart News reveal a group of Google employees, with encouragement from the tech giant’s director of monetization, began plotting the downfall of this website shortly after the 2016 election.
The group sought to strike at Breitbart News’ revenue by kicking the site off Google’s market-dominating ad services. Although their efforts ultimately failed, the discussion featured senior Google employees speaking frankly about their reasons for targeting the site. These included unfounded allegations of 'hate speech” and “fake news.”
In the leaked emails, Google employee Richard Zippel advised a fellow employee that Google would act against Breitbart News “at the site level” if sufficient examples of “hate” were found. This kicked off a concerted effort to find evidence of “hate speech” on Breitbart.
8. French fuel depots targeted as “yellow vest” protesters persist
Protesters angry over high fuel prices blocked access to fuel depots and stopped traffic on major roads on Monday after the government refused to back down on fuel taxes after a weekend of demonstrations across France.
More than 400 people were injured during the “yellow vest” protests which began Saturday with nearly 300,000 participants country-wide.
Early Monday, dozens of barricades were still being manned on motorways and roundabouts, but far fewer than the more than 2,000 sites on Saturday and 150 on Sunday.
Other protesters continued to camp out in supermarket parking lots.
“The movement is not exceptional... and obviously isn't as big as on Saturday,” Laurent Nunez, junior interior minister, told CNews, adding that police would continue to intervene to ensure major roads are not blocked.

Three women have been stabbed in a knife attack at a busy train station in France.
The attack took place at the main train station in the eastern city of Mulhouse - close to the Swiss and German border.

Described by onlookers as “unbalanced,” he is said to have stabbed one victim in the back in the station waiting room.
She sustained serious chest injures- and local authorities say she was a German woman with her 10-year-old daughter.

10. Italy: Salvini presides over eviction of migrants from abandoned factory
Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini presided over the eviction in Rome on Monday of a former penicillin factory building that was occupied by migrants and other people in need.
The factory is located in the suburban area of San Basilio in Rome and was closed in 2006. During the intervening years it was left to decay and has been occupied by migrants and the homeless.
Police sources estimated that at one point in the factory there were around 500 migrants, the majority of them from North Africa. They lived in poor conditions, with no electricity and running water.
The eviction was planned weeks ago and around just 40 migrants were still present on Monday morning when the eviction began, with hundreds of police officers deployed. It is unclear where the migrants will be allocated afterwards.
