When You Wish Upon a Starr

By Mahons On November 20th, 2019 at 6:19 pm

Ken Starr on Fox News has stated that today was a bombshell day, and that articles of impeachment for contempt, obstruction and bribery are certain. Apparently Trump megadonor and Ambassador Sondland’s testimony that therewas a quid pro quo, that it was directed by the President and that the President, his lawyer,the Vice President and the Secretary of State were “all in the loop”.
I wonder if the President of the Ukraine wore a blue dress? I suspect blue might not be his signature color.
Starr had been on Fox essentially shitting on the impeachment proceedings until today. This change of observation might be the first break in the dam. Time will tell.

The Moral Depravity of Trumpism

By Phantom On November 20th, 2019 at 1:38 pm

A core principle of Trumpism is to always seek to first attack the man, not to contest the idea if they can help it. Never forget this.

This philosophy, which Donald learned from his intellectual father Roy Cohn, was in full flower yesterday.

There would be few in the major media closer to Donald Trump than his early supporter Michael Savage. They’ve hung out at Mar A Lago and at the White House. Trump took him for a spin on Air Force One. They’re that close.

I listened to the Michael Savage podcast yesterday. The subject was the testimony of Lt. Colonel Alexander Vindman, a Ukraine expert, who testified before the Congress yesterday.

Vindman testified about Trump’s Ukraine shenanigans yesterday. So of course, Savage, personal friend of Trump, didn’t address any of the issues, he spend the entire show attacking a serving military officer.

Savage’s insults were many. Vindman, who was wounded in combat in Iraq, and who wears a Purple Heart, was repeatedly called a ” toy soldier “. He was called a deep state actor, a double agent, a traitor, a “Benedict Arnold”.

Other Trump media operatives including Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, writers for the New York Post, and others are engaging in similar asymetrical warfare.

None of them, especially Savage, would be carrying on like this without the approval of Trump and his team.

There is a great effort to distract the American people from the ball. So, let’s keep our eyes on the ball.

Why electoral interference matters

Forgive the delay in this….. I have been binging the Trial and then decompressing with the TV series the Blacklist, so I missed Kurts email. Here it is……

We have some of the top scientific minds in the world on this topic in the US. However, we lack the right legal structure and political will to take big steps and operationalize this technology. In other words, we have the engineers who can build the fighter jets but lack the airstrip, pilots, and everything else needed to make it work in real life. Countries like Russia and China — who are totally unencumbered by our constraints — have found a golden opportunity. 

 

Russian election interference is far from over. I asked 9 experts how to stop it.

 

Past:

 

Foreign electoral intervention

 

Future:

 

Foreign interference in the 2020 United States elections

 

Everyone in the World where elections are held need to be firm on electoral interference; its the bed rock of our democracy.
Anyone caught outside your country doing this needs sanctions placed upon them, and anyone , however high-up, trying to use foreign states for advantage deserves jail time. It is a high crime, and we must be ever-vigilant.

THAT’LL BE THE FOREIGNERS THEN

By Pete Moore On November 19th, 2019 at 6:42 pm

Commies love to tell us that the NHS depends on immigrants, that it’ll collapse without strip-mining poor countries of their doctors and nurses. As if we didn’t invent modern medicine in this country!

Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital: Babies and mums died ‘amid toxic culture’

Babies and mothers died amid a “toxic” culture at a hospital trust stretching back 40 years, a report has said.

The catalogue of maternity care failings at Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust are contained in a report leaked to The Independent.

The cases include 22 stillbirths, three deaths during pregnancy, 17 deaths of babies after birth, three deaths of mothers, 47 cases of substandard care and 51 cases of cerebral palsy or brain damage.

The interim report said the number of cases it is now being asked to review “seems to represent a longstanding culture at this trust that is toxic to improvement effort”.

But we never hear about immigrant staff when the NHS reveals itself to be a horrible human abattoir which exists only for the benefit of those in it. Which is very often. So if foreigners get the so-called “credit” for propping up the NHS we can start blaming them for all the things which go wrong too, yes?

I”M OFF TO WASH MY HAIR

By Pete Moore On November 19th, 2019 at 6:34 pm

Is it me?

I couldn’t think of anything less appealing than watching tonight’s debate between Boris and the communist tramp. It’s a television event only, promoted to get in advertising revenue. We are not one of these new democracies, with their presidents and all that.

The choice is clear anyway. With Boris it’s Brexit, left-liberalism and a bit of fun.

Corbyn means remaining in the EU, hard Marxism, Diane Abbott in charge of national security, the IRA and Hezbollah in charge of the Armed Forces, economic catastrophe, anti-Jewish pogroms, famine and the gulag for anyone who argues.

If you haven’t made up your mind by now you should have your vote taken off you.

ASSANGE STILL IN PRISON

By Pete Moore On November 19th, 2019 at 6:27 pm

Prosecutors in Sweden have dropped an investigation into a rape allegation made against Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange in 2010.

They might as well drop it. You’d think with all the rapes going on in Sweden right now they’d have more urgent things to investigate.

Separately, the US is seeking Assange’s extradition from the UK over his alleged role in the release of classified military and diplomatic material by Wikileaks in 2010.

Though I’d rather face a rape investigation than have the Yanks get their hands on me for whistleblowing. If he ends up over there he’ll be Epsteined.

SUSTAINABILITY, NOT RENEWABLES

By Pete Moore On November 18th, 2019 at 7:12 pm

The numbers in Germany are grim –

This is not sustainable, and the German people cannot be renewed with a flood of Third World immigrants. Once the Germans are overwhelmed economically its collapse will be spectacular and will take Europe with it.

THE BEST THING TO HAPPEN TO AN UNDESERVING WORLD

Exclusive: Labour manifesto to pledge a Corbyn government would review the legacy of British colonial rule across the globe.

There’s no need for that, and not just because Labour us tanking in the polls. I can save them the bother.

We spread the Word of the Lord to heathen lands. We built roads, railways, canals, ports and great cities. We took with us medicine, manners and decent tailoring.

British liberalism opened up the world to trade and made it vastly richer. Seven of the world’s 10 richest countries (Qatar, Singapore, Kuwait, Brunei, UAE, Hong Kong, and the USA) were British colonies or protectorates. Five of the ten richest African countries (Egypt, Sudan, South Africa, Ghana, and Nigeria) were British colonies.

We untied the world through all the sports (football, cricket and rugby). Even those American games are derived from them. We united it also through technology. The train and the telegraph were the greatest leaps in communication speed since the Roman Empire. We also united the world via the language of Shakespeare. Yep, if it wasn’t for us you’d still be clicking your tongue.

We defeated the Ottomans, freed the Arabs and saved Indian widows from being burned. We didn’t just abolish slavery. The West Africa Squadron tirelessly chased slavers from the seas. There’s the legacy, in the world around us, which is immeasurably better for our having civilised it.

The British Empire s the best thing to happen to an undeserving world.
