Tomorrow: In Jerusalem!

By Mike Cunningham On December 10th, 2017 at 3:51 pm

Many observers, myself included, were wondering why, along with all the triumphs and troubles within his Administration, Donald Trump would theoretically pick a fight with every Muslim country within the Islamic crescent by announcing that America would be moving her Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. His strongest ally in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia, expresses ‘disquiet’. Without the ‘diplomatic language’; wrapping; that statement amounts to an incredulous ‘You have Got to be Joking’! From Capital city to city, the same theme emerges: ’W.T.F.” is a generous rounding of those sentiments. In Gaza, the perfect excuse emerges for the rockets to fly once again from Hamas: with of course the concomitant and fully-expected Israeli reply of artillery and fighter-bomber strikes, along with the listings of dead and injured.

One platitude emerging for this truly strange decision, backed; it is true, by twenty years of Congress’ resolutions, along with various vague previous President’s musings, is that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel: ipso ergo facto sum that is where our embassy should stand. It was also a campaign promise of the Candidate Trump, and if there is one thing which can be said of the President: he keeps his promises.

The answer to the question why can best be revealed by a quick view of the beliefs of America’s Evangelical Fundamentalists, and their hopes for the ‘End of Days’ in a Jerusalem where Jesus reigns in glory once again. Those are not my words, hopes or beliefs, by the way; but they are the cornerstone of millions of Americans who have been raised in the teaching of the old-time Bible fundamentalists, and of the scores of off-shoot churches who preach “dispensational pre-millennialism”, which is the theology of those people.

As the lady from CNN writes, “I may not believe it — anymore, at least. You may not believe it. Donald Trump might not even truly believe it. But millions do. That matters. Not only for American politics, of course. For the peace of Jerusalem. And for peace for the rest of us as well.

US Unemployment Continues Great Decline

Click the image to see better detail on the chart.

Unemployment in the US rocketed up in 2008, in last year of the GW Bush regime, peaked at near 10% in 2009, after which it started it’s long and steady decline. Good news, not fake news.

If presidents are to get credit for economic performance, then I am sure that I can speak for all here that the country owes a great debt of gratitude to President Obama, whose growth policies saved the economy and who started the long, sustained economic recovery.

Donald, please don’t ** it up.

OH

Friday is the traditional muslim day of burning down the neighbourhood. Right on cue, Palestinians are burning down the neighbourhood. Not that anyone’s going to notice the difference.

If only Trump wasn’t so dumb, say the commies. If only Trump knew stuff, they say, then he wouldn’t do stupid things like – duh – say that the capital of Israel is, like, the capital of Israel.

Whoops –

Apparently Trump is Hitler because he pays the cheques which Clinton, Bush and Obama wrote. That’s the thing with the interwebs. Once something is recorded we can all look back. Which is unfortunate for bullshitters.

BEAUTIFUL NEWS FROM ALEPPO

We’re reminded that with the West’s pet head-choppers defeated, Christianity is slowly returning to one of it’s oldest heartlands.

ATW FRIDAY NIGHT JUKEBOX

By Pete Moore On December 8th, 2017 at 6:47 pm

Because Friday night is Music Night

Lord, what sins have I committed in a previous life? I received the dread news today that this Sunday, this very weekend, is Christmas shopping day. I can’t get out of it, my attendance is compulsory. My foolproof plan, which has seen me avoid Christmas shopping for many a year, seems to not quite cut the mustard this time round. Basically, my plan is to remind the family that I’m a bloke, therefore I have no idea what anyone wants, so I give money to a female relation to do it for me.

But this year I have my marching orders, and I’m ordered to get some presents on Sunday. Hell’s teeth, I’m sweating already, and it’s freezing out there. There’s only one thing for it: that’s to pitch up at a shopping centre somewhere, well ahead of opening time, and march in like I own the place. As if this old funky number is playing in my head. Dunno what I’m going to buy once I’m in there though. I’m a bloke, you see. As long as I’m in and out pronto, that’ll do me.

As always, feel free to post your favourite sounds down below. And if you have any idea what a 6 year old niece would like for Christmas, you can post that too.

Papal Infallibility, or Imperial Arrogance?

By Mike Cunningham On December 8th, 2017 at 6:28 pm

I write of one who holds the Office which is above all others in Roman Catholicism; I write of the Papacy, and of Pope Francis, the man who is deemed to be Infallible.

Note that term,’Infallible’ it means that the person so described is never wrong,  perfect, true, uncanny, precise, accurate, meticulous, scrupulous; but only in one respect: as far as the Catholic Faith believes, he is Infallible when it comes to matters of Church Dogma; is infallible when it comes to matters of principles or tenets concerning faith, morals or behaviour. Nothing else.

He is as fallible as the next bloke when it comes to major things such as Climate Change, but the average Catholic either is never reminded of that fact, or the truth is just carefully hidden away.

The Vatican’s  Pontifical Academy of Sciences has just issued, in Francis’ name; a startling denunciation of all things which they deem terrible; and at the top of that heap is, well; all of us who are not calling for all things fossil-fuelled to be shut down yesterday, and everything has to be either wind-, or knitting-, or just plain solar-powered: because they just KNOW that they are right, and we are all wrong for even pointing out that the Pope is just another bloke when it comes to, well, everything except what he is supposed to be expert on, which, strangely enough, doesn’t include SCIENCE. The Academy has just produced this vertical pile of garbage, which begins with this warning:-

With unchecked climate change and air pollution, the very fabric of life on Earth, including that of humans, is at grave risk. We propose scalable solutions to avoid such catastrophic changes. There is less than a decade to put these solutions in place to preserve our quality of life for generations to come. The time to act is now!

Along with:-

“With accelerating climate change, we put ourselves at grave risk of massive crop failures, new and re-emerging infectious diseases, heat extremes, droughts, mega-storms, floods and sharply rising sea levels,” the text reads.

They go on to propose “moving rapidly to a zero-carbon energy system – replacing coal, oil and gas with wind, solar, geothermal and other zero-carbon energy sources, drastically reducing emissions of all other climate altering pollutants and by adopting sustainable land use practices.”

Just like that!

I liked the idea of the Pope when likening himself to St. Francis; but a man of science heading a bunch of Wobblies? Give me a bloke who recognises his limitations, and I might listen; but a bloke who has a large microphone because he has been elected to be the Head of the Catholic Church, and gets delusions of grandeur? Sorry mate; stick with the incense and the rosaries, you’ll catch a better audience!

 

But neither cake has risen!

By Mike Cunningham On December 8th, 2017 at 2:58 pm

The United States’ Supreme Court, and the British Supreme Court, have to muse and deliberate on two almost identical cases, both of which revolve around the idea and ideal of Religious Freedom and Conscience.

The cake case from America revolves around a Colorado baker, who bakes and ices expensively decorated cakes for all occasions. He was approached by two homosexuals accompanied by the mother of one bloke, and asked to make a cake for the same-sex wedding reception. He declined, on the grounds that his religious beliefs would not allow him to have anything to do with same-sex marriage. He said other bakeries would accommodate them. They sued on the grounds of discrimination, and won. The baker appealed, and now the Supreme Court is due to have a look at the whole idea of a baker being forced to go against that which he believes is hedonistic, wrong and against everything he holds sacred. The Justice Department is backing Jack, but we shall see what is sweet, and flavourful, when the top Judges sit and speak.

The British Supremes must deliberate on a similar idea, which came from Ashers, a bakery in Northern Ireland which refused to bake a cake for a homosexual campaigner, on the grounds that they did not subscribe to the ideals represented by the logo requested, which supported same-sex marriage. The Equalities Commission (?????) got involved in the prosecution of this case, which the bakers initially lost; but their case, backed by the inestimable Christian Institute; now resides in the hands, or rather on the minds, of the British Supremes.

The matter which resides in both cases revolves around the lack of any ‘conscience’ obligation within both sets of Law, in both America and in Gt. Britain. When both Bills were being drafted, campaigners pleaded for a reliable conscience defence to be included, but the voices were ignored: and so we come to this. If either or both cases go against the defendants, we will be no doubt be seeing Muslim bakers being forced to bake cakes with Koranic cartoons iced into the cake face, or Anglican printers made to produce leaflets praising ‘Jihadi’ murders; both instances enforced on the grounds of non-discrimination.

The Equality Laws in the United Kingdom were brought in to  Parliament under Labour; they were approved under the bloody Tories, but they have been stewed and glued by a veritable avalanche of ‘discrimination campaigners’ and their efforts over the years. If the reader spends a contemplative half-hour paging through the learned work labelled The Rise of the Equalities Industries, he will learn of the progress of this monstrous regime. When Charles Dickens brought the phrase “The law is an ass” into general usage, he was simply stating what is always true; the Law, unless every byway is covered or locked out, will be bent sideways until the lawyers achieve what they wish to see, and a good idea is usually bastardised in return.

Bake your cake? Sorry, but the price is, or would be; too high! 

I hope that the long march of the homosexual lobby will be stopped in its tracks on both sides of the Atlantic: with Gorsuch on the Supremes for America, the defence will probably win through; in Belfast, the liberal Judiciary will probably side with the Sesame Street bunch.

76 years ago

By Patrick Van Roy On December 7th, 2017 at 10:05 pm

The United States suffered it’s first sneak attack.  2,403 people were killed and 1,178 were wounded. It was the beginning officially for the U.S. of WWII. During that war several groups of people were rounded up and were systematically being processed for extinction through Genocide. The Group Hardest Hit were the Jews.  At the End of that War HUMANITY as a whole said Never Again.

Every Nation but one has forgotten that Oath. Only the United States still Stands by it. As many of the Jewish people that could went back to their Homeland Israel. The Area of Israel and Judea has been the homeland of the Jews for over 3000 years. The Capital of their Homeland is Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is the core of Judaism and Catholicism, it is also important to Islam, but where Jerusalem is mentioned over 1000 times in the Old(Torah) and the New Testament it is not mentioned ONCE in the Koran. The Islamist Invaders and then squatters have tried for several Millennia to seize and control Jerusalem after WWII that will never happen again.

This week President Trump Codified what the U.S. declared in Law 22 years ago that we recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s one and only Capital.

This has outraged the Islamists and the Majority of the Worlds Nations….. I ask Why? The Islamists have NO CLAIM to the city, it is their dream that it will be their capital when they get their state. That will NEVER Happen. The Islamists can’t be trusted to preserve the city and it’s irreplaceable history. Everywhere the Islamists control they DESTROY ALL HISTORY THAT’S NOT ISLAMIC.

We will never allow this to happen to Jerusalem.

16 years ago WWIII Started with another sneak attack on the United States that killed 2 977 victims. The People responsible for this were the Islamists. So when I read of all the nations that are siding with the Islamists on their claim to Jerusalem and their outrage that the U.S. continues to honor NEVER AGAIN I have to question those Nations and those People.

You are siding with a People whose openly stated goals are to conquer the entire world and make all the people of the Earth either Islamic, Slaves, or Dead. That is who all you Nations and all you People are siding with.  It’s not like Islam’s claim to Convert, Enslave, or Kill is an idle boast. We witness everyday the attacks from the followers of Islam on Men, Woman, and Children who are innocents. They regularly commit Beheadings, Crucifixion’s, acts of conscripting Slaves, and some of the most horrific acts of violence that one man can do to another.

This is simple Good vs Evil. Any Nation or Person that aligns themselves as so many of you have with the followers of Islam freely Align yourselves with Evil, and you will pay the Price. You are freely casting your lot with evil and those whose goals are your death and subjugation.

You get what you Deserve.

 

GOOGLE HATES YOU SEEING THIS

By Pete Moore On December 7th, 2017 at 6:40 pm

Wow, 27 years after the Poland escaped the horrors of communism, Google extremists censor a video uploaded by the Polish government. Rampant left-liberalism appears to be resurrecting a modern form of samizdat –

There’s nothing in that video which is not already public knowledge. And confirming what Warsaw says in it, we learn today that the European Commission is to sue Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic, at the European Court of Justice, for refusing to admit potential terrorists and sex attackers.

Let that sink in.

One day we will all be nationalists.
