Sweat Home Alabama

By Mahons On July 20th, 2017 at 10:51 am

Donald Trump chose the New York Times for a rambling interview yesterday in which he made the extraordinary announcement that he would not have choosen the his Attorney General Jeff Sessions if he knew he was going to recuse himself from the Russian Inquiry.

Sessions, a former Senator from Alabama and an early and vocal supporter of Trump must be sweating his job and wondering if it is time to go home.  Trump was also critical of Session’s confirmation testimony in which he made some boo boos by neglecting to accurately disclose Russian contacts which is almost surreal given the ever changing stories from Donald Junior.  Sessions behavior was, adopting Trump’s own third person narrative in speaking about himself, unfair to the President.

Trump has turned more quickly on Sessions than he would on an ex-wife.  That bromance is kaput.  In ordinary times such a public rebuke of a cabinet member would result in a contemporaneous resignation.  But we do not live in ordinary times.  And the rebuke wasn’t for an objective misdeed or error, it was for an Attorney General recusing himself from an investigation into the very man whose campaign is the subject of the investigation.

Sessions is a conservative who generally has sailed in the far right waters of the Republican mainstream.  No RINO he.  He was an early and often supporter of the Trump campaign, well before it seemed like Trump had a chance.  In light of these remarks he really has no choice if dignity and honor concerned him.  But, having accepted a position in the Trump cabinet, perhaps dignity and honor were two things he had already given up.

Trump Stomps the RINOs

This clip doesn’t have the Full Smackdown. During this Luncheon Trump told them Flat out. “For 7 years you have submitted Repeal and Replace when you knew it wouldn’t be signed, Well here I am with Pen in Hand. Where’s the Bill? Bring it I’ll sign it. For 7 years that is what you promised, No one should Go Home until it’s Done”

If I find the better Clip I’ll post it.

STOP PAYING THE TELLY TAX

By Pete Moore On July 19th, 2017 at 6:09 pm

THE BBC is doing what it does best today, which is talking about itself. Presenters are shouting “look at me” as every programme is turned inward. This follows the BBC’s publication of what its top earners get paid, and what interesting reading it is.

We learn that the great virtue-signaller Gary Lineker is on 1.8 million to ask Alan Shearer what he thinks of the football we’ve just seen. Shearer’s on about 450K to spout his inane drivel. Chris Evans got paid a couple of mill to bury Top Gear last year. The BBC spin is its own “gender pay gap” (there isn’t one, it doesn’t exist), highlighting that poor little poppets like someone called Winkleman had to make do on 400K, while Laura Kuenssberg is struggling by on 250K.

Guido has the main details.

Don’t be fooled. The real story is that these merchants are paid by the threat of violence: cough up or go to prison. They’re talking about the women being paid less than men because they don’t want Telly Tax victims to notice how many of these smug, Left Wing talking heads are pulling down hundreds of thousands, and that we have no choice.

Bolsheviks love to talk about how great the BBC is. Fine, so put it all out to subscription and let the market decide. If it’s so great then we’ll pay for it. The BBC could then pay Lineker and Evans however much they like. But this is why I haven’t submitted to their coercion in years. While the state demands that I stump up for the BBC, because I own a TV, they can go whistle. Just stop paying for it.

What is the Russian term for ‘Get Stuffed’?

By Mike Cunningham On July 19th, 2017 at 1:42 pm

Readers may remember a while back when a bunch of ‘activists’ from Greenpeace tried to board the Prirazlomnayaa Russian oil rig? Greenpeace stated shock and ‘extreme disappointment’ when the entire crew and protesters off the Arctic Sunrise were slung into the local chokey, many on a charge of ‘piracy’. Cue large and regimented quantities of weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth. Eventually, the protesters were released, after their mummies stated they would be smacked if they did it again.

An International Arbitration Panel awarded $5.8 million in damages to Greenpeace and the protesters, and told the Russians not to do it again, as they had been extremely naughty.

The Russians, who had not taken part in the Arbitration Scheme, stated their reply would be forthcoming!

Review:- Nice movie: cannot understand why ‘Diversity’ does not play larger part!

By Mike Cunningham On July 19th, 2017 at 11:28 am

There have been as many opinions as grains of sand as to the likelihood of a successful retreat, by a battered, disorganised British Army, from the beaches, piers and waves of Dunkirk. No one really understood why an Army of over 275,000 weary, demoralised British soldiers; along with approximately 140,000 French, Belgian and Polish soldiers of a similar demeanour; was allowed to escape the overwhelming menace of the German tank divisions and regiments.

The simple fact, borne out by research after the War was over, was that the evacuation was allowed to happen because the British and French armour regiments attacked an exposed Panzer Division at Arras, exposed because they had outrun their supply chains, artillery and infantry support; and were in serious danger of being outflanked and forced into retreat.

After the attack was beaten off, Von Runstedt, after urgent reviews with his subordinates, signalled Berlin and Hitler that he wanted a pause, to regroup and re-inforce, before pressing into Dunkirk. Hitler agreed, giving Von Runstedt to ability to decide when to advance, as he had been promised by Goering that the Luftwaffe would clear the air of the R.A.F, and the beaches of the British Army.

The Luftwaffe did their best, but lost 156 aircraft whilst bombing the ‘little ships’ whilst the R.A.F. lost 145 aircraft, and, more importantly, precious pilots. The Germans regrouped, reinforced and commenced moving after three days, there was an organized and extremely competent defence; but ‘Operation Dynamo’ was in full swing, and only the dead were left on the Dunkirk beaches. The surviving soldiers formed the nucleus of a resurgent British Army, which eventually, together with America, Canada, and Free French; as part of the Allied Cause, returned on 6th June 1944, and on towards victory.

The film ‘Dunkirk’ is now on general release, but USA Today reviewed ‘Disaster turned Survival’ movie named ‘Dunkirk’ with the following words:-

Dunkirk is also one of the best-scored films in recent memory, and Hans Zimmer’s music plays as important a role as any character. With shades of Edward Elgar’s Enigma Variations, the melodies are glorious, yet Zimmer also creates an instrumental ticking-clock soundtrack that’s a propulsive force in the action scenes.

The trio of timelines can be jarring as you figure out how they all fit, and the fact that there are only a couple of women and no lead actors of color may rub some the wrong way. Still, Nolan’s feat is undeniable: He’s made an immersive war movie that celebrates the good of mankind while also making it clear that no victory is without sacrifice.

Yes, I can just imagine David Oyelowo calling up the casting director and stating that a 17.8% of the Army roles on the Dunkirk beach scenes should be reserved for B.A.M.E. (work it out yourselves) actors!

Following the Money and ObamaCare

By Patty On July 19th, 2017 at 1:43 am

In 2016, an average of $5.8 million dollars was spent on each of our “representatives” in Washington DC.

Politicians don’t write laws. Lobbyists write laws and policy. Politicians work for the lobbyists. Politicians sell the lobbyists’ products, the laws and policy that suit their interests. If you want to understand how Washington DC is run today, have a look at the chart below.

There is a lot of money invested in politicians whose job it is to support ObamaCare. The Republican/Democrat and the Conservative/Moderate distinctions don’t really matter. The personality of the politician doesn’t really matter.

Washington DC isn’t “broken.” It just doesn’t work or represent the ordinary American voter. Congress is working for the insider elite lobbyists and the business interests that fund them. . This is one of the reasons why We, The People voted for President Trump.

DIVERSITY IN ALL THINGS

By Pete Moore On July 18th, 2017 at 9:29 pm

A failed asylum seeker from Yemen who was given sanctuary at a church in northern Germany to prevent him from being deported has potentially infected more than 50 German children with a highly contagious strain of tuberculosis […]

The report shows increased incidences in Germany of adenoviral conjunctivitis, botulism, chicken pox, cholera, cryptosporidiosis, dengue fever, echinococcosis, enterohemorrhagic E. coli, giardiasis, haemophilus influenza, Hantavirus, hepatitis, hemorrhagic fever, HIV/AIDS, leprosy, louse-borne relapsing fever, malaria, measles, meningococcal disease, meningoencephalitis, mumps, paratyphoid, rubella, shigellosis, syphilis, toxoplasmosis, trichinellosis, tuberculosis, tularemia, typhus and whooping cough.

What diversity these future doctors and engineers supply, including infectious diseases. Their example makes you realise how wasteful we Westerners have been in fighting disease, developing medicine and improving health. What a waste of time and resources that was!

(Citizens are reminded to embrace highly infectious tropical diseases. Local children stricken with blackwater fever and TB makes “refugees” feel more welcome and less alienated.)

ADVERTISING MENTAL INVALIDITY

By Pete Moore On July 18th, 2017 at 6:32 pm

IT’S a measure of how deeply soaked the professional classes are in Cultural Marxist group-think that the Advertising Standards Authority aims to ban “sexist” ads.

Standards body unveils plan to crack down on sexist advertisements

UK watchdog takes steps against ads that objectify, sexualise or mock people for not conforming to stereotypes

Advertisements that perpetuate sexist stereotypes, from men bungling housework to girls being less academic than boys, will be banned under rules being proposed by the industry watchdog.

I know it’s a Guardian link, but it’s true. The idiot in charge of the ASA spoke about it on Radio 4 this morning. There we were thinking that their job was to weedle out untrue or misleading ads. Oh no, this is modern Britain, where most people have no idea how far we are from living in a free country. The job of all institutions is to enforce official dogma, and that dogma is extreme Left Wing social engineering. Oh for the days when Fairy Liquid kept Nanette Newman’s hands as soft as her face. That would be banned now. At least we might be spared the PC scourge of men who can’t do anything right. Every break is full of adverts with hapless men getting something wrong while the missus mockingly tuts. Yeah right, we only made the world. It seems so long ago that men and women simply accepted our differences, as if they’re so natural and right. I think life is better when we do that.

Oh Say Can You See?

By Mahons On July 18th, 2017 at 12:10 pm

The receptionist in a psychiatrist’s office calls the doctor and says “There is a man without an appointment in the waiting room who says he is invisible.”  The doctor responds, “Tell him I can’t see him today.”

The President’s Wall with Mexico is also difficult to see.  I wonder if he claimed it was invisible how many of his supporters would believe him, and how many would claim media reports that it had not been built to be fake news.

He is at the six month mark of his Presidency.  The great Wall he promised time and again to build quickly has not materialized.  Mexico has not, to my knowledge, sent a check to pay for it.  The question then becomes this – did he really mean he would build a wall, or was it simply an appeal to a particular section of the American electorate, namely the profoundly moronic?  Do not dismiss these people as fringe as they are quite numerous and responsible for such things as the Olive Garden restaurant chain, Reality Television, New Country Music, and Tom Clancy as a literary figure.

One of President Trump’s least admirable qualities is putting an ugly face on a necessary task.  Namely he has undermined necessary efforts to reduce illegal immigration by appealing to baser elements for whom the issue is religous or racial.  Doubt me?  Who supports his efforts here?  There is nothing wrong with being against illegal immigration per se.  But one has to watch out for a worthy goal being hijacked by those with unworthy goals.  And the President was always signaling those with unworthy goals with his rhetoric.  To those good souls who believed him in good faith and missed his unsubtle signals, I caution:  watch the company you keep.

At some point a child will no doubt remark “the emperor has no wall.”  Must we all wait for such a patently obvious moment?  Or can we agree that it is simply another con by a man who has conned folks all of his life?
