What a novel thing it is, for a politician to do what he promises. The TPP is/was a deeply complex agreement, described as a trade deal. I’ve read that it’s modeled in part on the EU’s internal market regime, making it more like a harmonisation of global governance; the kind of thing designed specifically to enrich the special interests and power elites. If you aren’t part of that club then you’re potential roadkill. No wonder they hate President Trump.
That last order is in relation to the funding of NGO’s which promote or perform abortions. Planned Parenthood (sic) and NAFTA appear to be in the Trump crosshairs too. Good.
TOMORROW morning at 9.30, the Supreme Court justices will convene to deliver their verdict on the Article 50 case which was heard in December. The government believes it has prerogative powers to trigger Article 50. The case was brought by a scurrilous cabal, intent on blocking Article 50 from ever being triggered. No-one believes that the Supreme Court will find in favour of the government.
How we got here, after our great demonstration of direct democracy, might be a touch murky for some. The good people at Spiked (where did it all go right?) have produced this excellent short film to explain what’s going on. It puts our inspiring vote into democratic context, via the Levellers and the Chartists, and explains why the power-elites and the special interests are so intent on blocking the verdict of the Glorious Referendum.
I’ve said many times that Brexit is a natural Left Wing cause. It’s the natural cause for anyone with even a hint of romance and rebellion in their heart. I’d defy any Leftist to watch it and still argue otherwise. If you do watch it, it might be a good idea to nip over to youtube’s bandwidth –
Holy Neptune, a story that didn’t make as big an impact as it might have. Did one of the UK’s Trident Missiles veer off course towards Florida? Talk about we will fight on the beaches. It was unarmed, so it might have only taken out a few snowbirds instead of Miami or Mar-a-Lago. Prime Minister May is confirming or denying the story. Makes you wonder if we are headed back to the days of Dr. Strangelove.
An uncomfortable conversation for some men involves the question – does size matter? Well it matters more than the truth for some.
Trump’s press secretary denounced the media for accurately reporting the size of the crowd at the inauguration. Course he didn’t mention that they were accurate, rather that it was the largest ever. Since the crowd size is largely unimportant except for vanity, it was both an odd and telling moment.
Trump himself went to the CIA where he told hundreds of workers he was behind them and that nobody supportered them more. He blamed the media for saying otherwise. Since these folks are in the business of intelligence I would imagine there was some head-scratching involved.
We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones and unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate from the face of the Earth.
Those words were uttered yesterday by the New President of the United States. How many of you doubt that he will act on those words.
Many people are worried about Trumps relationship with Russia, some even going as far as accusing him of being Putin’s Puppet. That Putin aided and was the cause of Hillary Clinton’s Defeat.
Hillary Clinton defeated herself.
The Russians are America’s adversary. They are every nation in the World adversary. If you doubt that you are very sadly mistaken. The U.S. does NOT want to go to War with Russia, and unless Putin is stupid we won’t.
What will happen is the U.S. will resume it’s role in keeping the Bear in it’s cage. We will deter their Aggression, we will not have to do anything except put ourselves back on the board as the economic and military power that we are to get the Russians to back themselves down.
We will however be going to War. Back to The War we had been fighting 8 years ago, the war that didn’t end, but that we walked away from. That is about to change. The only thing Obama did right in the last 8yrs was his use of Drones.
Pin Pricks however do not win wars, do not end threats. The use of our military is about to be put back into play and used as it was designed to be used to defeat our enemies and the elimination of all threats.
President Trump laid out his plan to do so back in Youngstown Ohio during the Campaign.
The following is that event. Three people spoke, the first two short speeches ahead of Trumps are by Rudy and Pence.
Please I ask you to find the time to listen to ALL these speeches, they are important if you want an idea of what is coming.
I’M sure we have much to say out there, wherever you are, in whatever part of the old British Empire you live. I don’t, but then I’m watching rugby before catching up with the Grand Tour, and what a great tour it is.
So have yourselves a weekend Open Thread then, one decorated with words of wisdom. Tell us what you know –
Women of the world are marching today. Not just in Washington, but in London and, according to the wireless, in some sixty countries, they’re upset about Donald Trump. Bless.
I notice that the London march goes past the Boots on Piccadilly. Handy for stocking up on green and purple hair dye. While the demo starts at the US embassy, they won’t see it from the Saudi embassy. They never protest actual female oppression, these types.
They don’t protest state-enforced misogyny across the Middle East and Africa
They don’t protest female genital mutilation
They don’t protest the punishment of rape victims
They don’t protest forced marriage
They don’t protest any barbarities against women, by cultures happy to wallow in the 7th-Century
What they’re roused by is the outcome of a lawful, democratic election, in which 42 per cent of all women, and 53 per cent of white women voted for Trump. But they have nothing to say on actual, real oppression. It’s this self-obsessed narcissism which has set the Left on its losing streak, and it’s why they’ll continue to lose. They’re not interested in growing up and learning. They’re not interested in other people. They’re not motivated by decency and principles. As with little children it’s all about them, and so they whine when they don’t get their own way.
The United States of America is Transferring Power from one Man to Another, and except for some poor bastards that believed in Honor and have the chutzpa put on a Badge it’s been pretty bloodless.
A lot of blood however has boiled though. I don’t see that ending quickly. Too much bad blood on both sides. The first few months will be ugly.
However we are coming out of 8yrs of a President that wanted to fundamentally change America. He did his best.
Now another man is going to try to put it as he see’s it should work.
I wish him well.
Now I think the change is worthy of partying a hoot and a holler. I would have taken a .45 to the range today and fired off 4 or 5 hundred rounds for a few hours of fun, but narcotics and firearms don’t mix, neither does the bottle of Russian Vodka sitting in a block of in the freezer…. oh well
That just leaves MUSIC
and David you may like your Elvis and he ain’t half bad, but their is only one ELVIS!
You do not defeat terrorism by rewarding terrorists, regardless of how many bleeding heart liberals argue otherwise. Want to know where that flawed approach leads to?

It's available right now for ATW readers so make sure you get your copy by emailing the editor! This is the book that dissents from the herd mentality that doing wrong can lead to being right. It doesn't and this book spells out WHY.
