Devon County Council agreed to delegate its powers over Highways...

Former child stars Corey Feldman and Elijah Wood have bravely spoken out about the pedophilia epidemic rampant in Hollywood, while the industry continues attempting to normalize pedophilia by celebrating and defending child molesters in their ranks. Director Roman Polanski has been praised and defended by many Hollywood liberals — including Meryl Streep — despite his drugging and raping a 13-year-old girl. Whoopi Goldberg even said it wasnt rape-rape. Not rape rape? Is that why Polanski has been on the run in various European countries that don't have extradition treaties with the United States? Woody Allen’s step-daughter, Dylan has accused him of sexually assaulting her when she was 7. Then there is the whole Soon-Yi thing. How did Hollywood react? Hollywood's favorite pervy step-dad Woody Allen has been defended by Hollywood royalty too, and those that won't go as far as defending him say they want to remain neutral.

By David Icke I have recently been sent a series of genealogical charts which detail a bloodline and its off shoots that will be highly relevant to the readers of The Biggest Secret . I had no idea of their existence when I wrote The Biggest Secret . Yet it reads like an index of the book and most, if not all, of the major players in the advancing agenda of global control over thousands of years. These charts are stunning confirmation that the same bloodlines have expanded their power out of the Near and Middle East of the ancient world to control the planet today, precisely as detailed in The Biggest Secret . Satanism, the religion of the world's 0.1% elite, is in fact the worshiping of their Anunnaki gods For readers of The Biggest Secret the following will prove extremely interesting: The Merovingians This bloodline and its offshoots includes a long line of pharaohs in ancient Egypt, including Rameses II (1295-1228 BC), who is considered to be the greatest pharaoh of all.

Yes, yes and yes. Virtue-signaling expresses two other key characteristics of an empire in terminal decline: complacency and intellectual sclerosis. Michael Grant described these manifestations of decline in his excellent account The Fall of the Roman Empire , a short book I have been recommending since 2009: There was no room at all, in these ways of thinking, for the novel, apocalyptic situation which had now arisen, a situation which needed solutions as radical as itself. (The Status Quo) attitude is a complacent acceptance of things as they are, without a single new idea. This acceptance was accompanied by greatly excessive optimism about the present and future. Even when the end was only sixty years away, and the Empire was already crumbling fast, Rutilius continued to address the spirit of Rome with the same supreme assurance.

Did you ever commit any pranks in your time at high school, college, or university? Maybe you moss-painted a rude word on the wall somewhere, or put a design in a sports field with herbicide, or even worse, slow-release fertiliser. [Roman Kozak] and his friends went far further than that last summer when they replicated some of the most famous student pranks; they put a Jaguar S type car on the roof of their school . And now the dust has settled, he's posted an account of how they did it. Of course, putting a car on the roof is a significant challenge, particularly when you only have the resources of a high-school student. Ensuring the roof was strong enough for a car, and then hiring a crane to do the deed, was beyond them. They therefore decided to take the wheels and outer body panels of a car and mount them on a wooden frame to give the appearance of a car.

Italy is famous for ancient ruins like the Colosseum, Pompeii and the Pantheon . But you don't need to visit one of the country's numerous celebrated sites to experience a bit of its history. The latest spot to view a part of Italy's ancient culture? Good ole Mickey D's. On Tuesday, McDonald's opened its doors in Marino, Italy with a special piece of history on display — a 147-foot stretch of an ancient Roman road. The restaurant, which is located about 12 miles southeast of central Rome , had to temporarily halt construction in 2014 when the road was discovered while digging for the building's foundations. A post shared by Giovanni Bruno of the ancient Roman road discovered under a McDonald's. on Jan 29, 2017 at 7:19am PST

Plenty in there, including Petersen. It was an easy take for Roman Burki. Plenty of power but just straight down the middle. Hofler. Neat and tidy to Grifo.

Each has different purposes and common uses among designers. Serif fonts are fonts that have small lines or embellishments attached to the letters. These embellishments are calledserifs.” Common fonts such as Times New Roman and Merriweather are examples of serifs. How are they used? One common argument is that serif fonts should be used as body text because it’s easier to read them in large blocks of text . However, this preference mostly stems from historical precedence: we’re used to reading Times New Roman in books and white papers, therefore there is the precedence that the font type is generally “easier to read” in large bodies of text. When you’re first starting out, it’s a good idea to keep this use in mind. Sans serifs are fonts that do not have small lines or embellishments attached to the ends of letters. Some of the most popular fonts in this family include Roboto, Helvetica, and Arial.

Brazilians living through two years of steep recession and nearly 13% unemployment have grasped this year's carnival as a chance to let off steam. In Rio especially, the thrill of hosting the Olympics six months ago has given way to the grim reality of rising crime and near bankruptcy of the state government. There were intense cheers around the packed stadium of 70,000 people the moment that drumming began to thunder up from the piste. Samba queens dressed in sequined micro-costumes and vast feathered headdresses danced at dizzying speed. Behind them came armies of drummers and costumed dancers, interspersed by the floats. Each school picks a theme for its parade and is judged according to strict criteria. More schools were to parade on Monday night, with the champion being announced on Wednesday, the start of Lent in mostly Roman Catholic Brazil.
