ATW FRIDAY NIGHT JUKEBOX

By Pete Moore On February 15th, 2019 at 7:19 pm

Because Friday night is Music Night

Another week done at the coalface of capitalism. I hear that it’s half-term next week. Thank the Lord for that. Not only will children be spared the ordeal of incessant claptrap, some of us will be able to to keep the economy going with a little less traffic. I always liked school holidays.

We’ve produced a few decent bands and singers in these little islands, and it’s my opinion that Dusty Springfield is the best female singer of the lot. Better even than Cilla. So we’ll have some of her. Have yourselves a great weekend whatever you’re up to. As always, feel free to share your fav sounds down below –

THIS COUNTRY IS COMPLETELY MENTAL

By Pete Moore On February 15th, 2019 at 7:06 pm

Come sweet asteroid of doom.

Mother is no longer a gender-specific term that applies only to women, lawyers on behalf of the Government have said.

SUCH A DILEMMA!

By Pete Moore On February 15th, 2019 at 7:03 pm

More than 300 parents and children gathered outside of a primary school yesterday to protest against lessons on homosexuality and gender.

Some Muslim demonstrators said they would rather leave the UK than allow their children to continue attending Parkfield Community School in Birmingham.

Pupils were kept out of lessons for the first hour of the day. Some joined in with the chants and held placards reading: ‘Education not indoctrination.’ One child carried a handwritten sign which said: ‘Let kids be kids.’

They’re completely correct of course. State education exists now solely to fill young minds with extreme-left propaganda. Witness thousands of children “striking” today, demanding action on climate change. It bears repeating, that parents ought to do everything possible to protect their children from the perverts, weirdos, communists and other wrong’uns called teachers. But on the other hand this lot is threatening to leave the country in protest.

I can’t make up my mind.

 

 

TRUMP DECLARES NATIONAL EMERGENCY

By Pete Moore On February 15th, 2019 at 6:47 pm

We have an invasion of drugs, invasion of gangs, invasion of people, and it’s unacceptable. “Everyone knows that walls work.”

So President Trump has pushed the button. It’s an all-or-nothing option. I suspect that DC’s lawyers are rapidly sharpening their invoices because this one’s going all the way to the Supreme Court.

Although there’s nothing new in such a presidential declaration American patriots ought to be careful what they wish for. Precedent is set on contentious issues. A future Democratic president might do likewise after a shooting to start taking away guns, for example. And I can’t see how Trump loses electorally on the issue; either he gets his wall or he can point to obstructive Democrats.

Nevertheless it is a state of emergency regardless of the politics. The southern border is a highway for drugs, weapons, criminals and people-smugglers. Demographics is destiny and the tide simply must be halted if the US is to remain a First World country in the long term.

It’s Called Treason and Sedition

By Patrick Van Roy On February 15th, 2019 at 3:59 pm

Andrew McCabe admits in public and in a book that he is guilty of Treason and Sedition. That he along with the upper echelon of the Justice Department and the FBI conspired to undermine an elected President.

Things must be put in perspective.  First McCabe was Fired from the FBI for Lying under oath, and Leaking to the Press. His violations were so egregious that he was fired the day before his retirement to deny him his pension. He claims that he was doing so because he believed the President may have won with the Aid of Russia.

Now McCabe, Comey, Rosenstein, and Loretta Lynch KNEW that the only “evidence” against President Trump was the Steel Dossier. Even the target they used to get a warrant from the FISA COURT to plant spies and wiretap the Campaign during the Election Carter Page never met with any russian, he met with a CIA/FBI spy and campaign donor to Hillary Clinton who asked him if he knew about the Clinton emails.

Everyone in command at the FBI/DOJ knew the Steel Dossier was not only a piece of fiction but that it consisted of phoney stories created by the Russians and bought and paid for by the Clinton campaign through a Foreign agent. If there ever was such a Crime as “Collusion” that would be it.

There is no other “evidence” against the President.  There is NO CRIME that was committed to initiate an investigation let alone appoint a special counsel. This is a Conspiracy of the highest ranking members of the FBI/DOJ/CIA to cover up the crimes of one candidate while setting the other candidate up for false prosecution. To first undermine the Trump Campaign and if that did not work to create an insurance policy of false accusations and nonstop investigations to undermine his Presidency.

McCabe even admits later in the interview that they tried to see if they could evoke the 25th Amendment to have him removed. Brainstorming with “his team” who in the cabinet they could approach and whether or not they could get the vice president to go along.

That is Sedition and Treason…..

The 25th Amendment was designed for when a President has become incapacitated or needs to be removed after impeachment or in the case of physical or medical impairment.  It’s creation became an apparent need after Woodrow Wilson an already disaster of a President had a stroke in the second year of his second term.

Despite already being in poor health, and against the advice of his doctors, President Wilson crossed the nation by train in the fall of 1919 in a “whistle stop” campaign to win public support for his League of Nations plan. With the nation in a predictable post-war desire for international isolationism, he enjoyed little success and was rushed back to Washington after collapsing from physical exhaustion.

Wilson never fully recovered and finally suffered a massive stroke on October 2, 1919.
Edith immediately began making decisions. After consulting with the president’s doctors, she refused to make her husband resign and allow the vice president to take over. Instead, Edith began what she would later call her one-year and five-month long “stewardship”

What event had taken place? Had President Trump suffered a stroke, been shot, succumbed to pneumonia,  succumbed to Cancer or any major ailment? Has he been seen walking down the hallways of the white house arguing with the Portraits of other Presidents??? Nixon was…. No none of these events have occured.

A group of the Highest ranking members of the American Justice and Intelligence Departments of the United States Government Conspired on how to Remove a Duly Elected President with the 25th Amendment for no other reason than disagreement with his policies.

That is the definition of Treason.

SHE’S NOT ONE OF US

By Pete Moore On February 14th, 2019 at 6:46 pm

A British woman (sic) who ran away to Syria as a schoolgirl to join the Islamic State group has been told she could face prosecution if she returns home.

Shamima Begum, now 19 and pregnant, told the Times she had no regrets but wanted to have her baby in the UK …

In her interview with the newspaper, Ms Begum, who married an IS fighter, showed little remorse for her involvement with the terror group, saying she was not fazed by seeing “beheaded heads” in bins.

“I don’t regret coming here,” she told Times journalist Anthony Loyd, who found her in the camp.

We know what’ll happen if she pitches up in Dover. It’ll be a journey ending in a council flat and a life of welfare crack on the idiot British taxpayer. But no, she’s not British. She’s an unrepentant adult muslim who still supports ISIS. She is not one of us. She does not deserve to hold a British passport. She can go where she likes, but she ought to be defenestrated by the government and barred from returning.

THE EU IS A DODO

By Pete Moore On February 14th, 2019 at 6:33 pm

Between 1999, when the euro was launched, and the start of 2017…the eurozone’s GDP grew by 26%, against the UK’s 44 per cent and 42% in the United States. Italy is up by just 6.7% and Greece by 1.3%; both have suffered two wasted decades.”

That’s the longer term context. Today the Eurozone is slipping into recession. Italy is already there, possibly Germany too. When Remainers told us that a decision to leave the EU would result in economic downturn, they didn’t mean over there.

Just look at those numbers again, and bear in mind that Asia is just warming its engine. The EU, and its evil Eurozone, which condemns tens of millions to permanent unemployment, are as good as gone already. The present and future have no need for mid-20th Century solutions to problems which never existed.

Airbus and Amazon make the right calls

By Phantom On February 14th, 2019 at 6:00 pm

The highly successful Airbus made a big bet on the superjumbo A380, which can hold up to 800 passengers.

The bet was that as hub airports got more congested, that such giants would move people more efficiently between say JFK and Heathrow.

Boeing rejected this model, and instead invested heavily in the 787, which seats up to 335 persons. Boeing anticipated that many passengers would love to skip the hubs and go point to point to the destination where possible ( think Austin to London, nonstop ).

Boeing won that bet big time. The 787, despite early teething pains is hugely popular, and they’ll be selling them as fast as they can make them for a long time.

Airbus yesterday announced that they were cancelling the A380 project. While passengers liked the plane, most airlines didn’t. Such a huge plane didn’t fit the point to point model at all.

Airbus cut its losses, rather than sticking with a loser. Smart move by them.

Amazon has just announced that it’s backing out of its decision to build a second headquarters in Long Island City, Queens, NYC.

Amazon would have received large subsidies, mostly in the form of tax deferrals. The deal, brokered by Cuomo and De Blasio, was a legitimate source of controversy.

Yet, it would have brought 25,000 jobs at an average salary of $150,000 to the city and region. Plus large numbers of other jobs in construction and other fields. The sane cities of America would kill for a shot at such a deal, even with the subsidies.

NYC is now a place where the brain-dead left is on the rise. If Amazon had stuck with this deal, they would have been the subject of endless harassment by insurgent Democrat politicians.

The best companies, like Airbus and Amazon know when to fold ’em.

Amazon is one of the very best companies in the world. They and their 25,000 good paying jobs have just been chased away by a mob led by a bartender.

Until the Pol Pot Democrats are beaten down, New York City is not open for business.

The fact that Amazon was chased away will harm our business reputation for decades – and I predict major repercussions in local and state politics.

ATW OPEN THREAD

By Pete Moore On February 13th, 2019 at 7:27 pm

Does anyone have a subscription for The Thunderer? I’m not asking for a friend but for me, because I’d like to read this piece:

Sometimes life and work fill the hours. Such is the case this week. I know there’s news out there, but unless the Prime Minister has started telling the truth and Venezuelans have found some food, much of it will simply be filler between the adverts.

So have yourselves an Open Thread then, and tell us what you know –
