“PROUD TO SAY THAT NAME …”

By Pete Moore On May 27th, 2017 at 9:36 pm

FIRST, congratulations to the Exeter Chiefs for becoming the English rugby champions. They’re relative minnows, only getting promotion to the top tier seven years ago for the first time. It’s fitting that Gareth Steenson got the winning points. The Ulsterman is a survivor of the Chiefs team from those semi-pro times. Long may these things happen.

And well done to the Arsenal, now 13 times FA Cup winners after beating Chelsea … phew. Chelsea are the deserved league champions, I feared the worst, and the worst looked very bad. A work colleague asked me yesterday for a prediction. I seriously said 5-0. We can’t defend with a full strength team and went into the final with three centre-halves missing.

Somehow the boys rallied themselves, were superb, and did our name proud. It shows how difficult a Double really is too. But it’s always a great day when the Arsenal win old trophy at Wembley, even if I still come close to getting back on the fags on days like these.

Up the Gunners.

AN APOLOGY..

By David Vance On May 27th, 2017 at 7:19 pm

Alert readers may have noticed that I have frequenty referred to the Jihadi threat in the UK consisting of some 3000 individuals. (That’s about ten times what the IRA ever had, as a point of reference)

I wish to apologise as I was wrong.

It’s 23,000.

The size of a military regiment.

Allahu Akbar, baby.

Memorial Day Weekend

By The Troll On May 26th, 2017 at 6:53 pm

This weekend in my country is a twofold Holiday weekend. Monday is Memorial Day and this weekend is the Start of Summer Vacation…. School kids and Families where I grew up are heading to the Jersey Shore, southern Jersey Cape May, Wild Wood, Margate sadly no longer Atlantic City….

However the main purpose as we celebrate the Weekend is to remember those that have given their Lives in the Service of our Nation. The Fallen. They died for our freedom.

We Love them, We Honor them, We Salute them, and we Thank Them.

Zombies

By Mahons On May 26th, 2017 at 6:35 pm

In case you are among those who think Western Civilization brought Islamic terrorists upon themselves may I offer you today’s tragedy of an Islamic attack on Coptic Christians in Egypt that left over twenty dead.

The enemies of civilization are like zombies in their killing.  We would do well to all remember that.

WINNING THROUGH LOSING…

By David Vance On May 26th, 2017 at 10:27 am

Only by insisting that we do not fight back against Islamic State can we…er….beat Islamic State. So states Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn…

Jeremy Corbyn is to take the hugely controversial step of blaming Britain’s foreign wars for terror attacks such as the Manchester suicide bombing. The Labour leader will claim a link between “wars our government has supported or fought in other countries and terrorism here at home”, as he relaunches his party’s election campaign on Friday after the three-day pause. Mr Corbyn will stress that his assessment is shared by the intelligence and security services and “in no way reduces the guilt of those who attack our children”.

Corbyn’s idiocy is profound. Someone might casually observe that Germany has also been a recent victim of Islamic State driven terrorism yet did not participate in “foreign wars”.  Germany, however, has adopted the “open borders’ policy that faciliates Islamist killers moving into its territory. Then there is the pesky business of Sweden and Belgium.

Just like the UK welcomed the Manchester Jihadists Al Queda supporting parents from Libya.

HURT FEELINGS TRUMPS DEAD CHILDREN…

By David Vance On May 26th, 2017 at 10:12 am

I watched BBC Question Time last night and I despaired. This was the panel.

This is what the consensus view was.

  1. Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham insisted the killer Salman Abedi was not a true Muslim. Abedia attended the local mosque, had memorised the Koran, and had taken to wearing Islamic robes. Earlier this week, Burnham insisted that Abedi had acted alone. It is now obvious he was part of a network. This cosmic stupidity is coming from the MAYOR of Manchester.
  2. Colin Parry, who lost his son to IRA terrorism, felt that talking to possible Jihadists might stop them. Yes, really.
  3. Khan and Abzal felt that we need better “programmes” to counter the Jihad. With prettier names.
  4. Home Secretary Amber Rudd wasn’t sure that we had any lessons to learn from the slaughter of our children. She seemed to feel hate crime was the real issue here.

All panelists agreed that the hurt feelings of Muslims were a pressing priority for us.

I despair. Islam wins.

EMPTY PLATITUDES DON’T WASH ANYMORE…

By David Vance On May 26th, 2017 at 10:00 am

From my friends over on Shy Society…well worth a read.

“We are angry. Angrier than ever before. Every single loss of life through terrorism is barbaric but there’s something uniquely grotesque about targeting a music concert full of children and teenagers.

But our anger isn’t constrained to these Islamic “losers” as President Trump aptly labelled them. No, our deep-seated outrage is reserved, as yours should be too, for the traitorous political class and liberal elite which is systematically, piece by piece, dismantling this country before our very eyes.

The post-terrorism culture in the West has become one of apathy, denial and empty, meaningless platitudes. Hell, when even the Mayor of London declares terrorism is “part and parcel” of living in a big city, is it any wonder?

We are all well rehearsed to the process by now. Firstly a hashtag is created, then temporary Facebook profile photos are set, condolences flood in from world leaders, a Government COBRA meeting is held, the terror threat level is considered, world monuments are illuminated, candles are lit and vigils are staged with banners declaring #RefugeesWelcome. All this ‘happens’, but what ACTUALLY happens to prevent further bloodshed? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. The post-terrorism virtue signalling is complete within a working week and the atrocity is largely forgotten about until it happens again, and again, and again.”

Collateral Damage

By Mahons On May 25th, 2017 at 1:00 pm

Republicans in Congress hated Obamacare.  Not for anything it did or didn’t do, but because the former President had enabled it’s passage.  The name is red meat to many of their supporters, a knee jerk reaction that I assure has more to do with the popular nickname for the Act then any of its failings.  Rather than fix the legislation, or offer a viable alternative, they simply wanted to destroy it.

The current Republican Health Care plan passed by the House of Representatives will leave 23 million Americans uninsured according to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office.  It is worth taking a pause and letting that sink in.
