The Railroading of a General and the True threat to the Republic

If you take the time to watch these two clips I am sure you will find many things to debate.

GOD BLESS SYRIA

To the great disappointment of Western globalists, peace and order are returning to Syria.

THE PUTSCH AGAINST DEMOCRACY GATHERS SPEED

By Pete Moore On December 16th, 2018 at 6:52 pm

Theresa May ruled out – many times – annulling the People’s Vote of 2016, either with a (rigged) referendum or ceding options to a Remain Parliament. Of course she was lying. She’s such a chronic liar she makes Blair look vaguely honest. A Tory MP has admitted that the government is discussing exactly these things across Parliament.

Let me state why another referendum is illegitimate.

The essential nature of a referendum is legitimate expectation and fair play. For a referendum to be legitimate it is necessary that those who participate in it have faith that its instruction be respected. No such trust is possible if a first referendum is set aside in favour of a second. That’s what will have happened if another referendum is approved. The 2016 referendum will have been set aside, the victim of a coup d’etat. Therefore a second referendum cannot be legitimate.

There is no way around this. It is not for government or Parliament to look for ways around a deadlock. Their instruction is to remove the EU from our kingdom. They created the deadlock because they have set themselves the task of denying that instruction. They have created a constitutional crises, made the UK a laughing stock, destroyed any respect for parliamentary democracy, and they imperil the Queen’s peace.

They created the problem. The only way through it is to deliver on our binding and irrevocable instruction.

BELGIUM WAKES UP

By Pete Moore On December 16th, 2018 at 6:36 pm

The good people of Brussels and Belgium took to the streets today. They are protesting the insane UN Migration Pact, which of course our horrible PM has signed. The people of are waking up. We are no longer willing to be passive spectators in our own demise.

Howdy from Charles In Texas

Say hi to Charles!

My knee replacement was October 24th and I sailed through with no complications, thanks to God and a good surgeon! My physical therapy will be over by Christmas and my job now is to build up my endurance in walking. I did 3/4 the of a mile the other day, but that was too far, as my knee swelled mightily.

I’ve been checking in on old ATW, but haven’t felt well enough to get back into the rough and tumble of commenting.

I hope you have a blessed holiday season, and I’m sure I’ll get back to commenting soon.

Best Wishes,
Charles

ATW FRIDAY NIGHT JUKEBOX

By Pete Moore On December 14th, 2018 at 7:04 pm

Because Friday night is Music Night.

Another week done at the coalface of capitalism. Great, only one more sleep till I’m scraping the ice off the motor in the pre-dawn again. For some reason, whoever built my Victorian agricultural cottage neglected to include a garage.

A bit of quality this week. Lullay, Mine Liking is a medieval carol. I think 15th-Century. Only the lyrics come down to us, so performers have a free go musically. It’s usually performed as a choral piece, but I love the lone, stark female voice here, courtesy of Magpie Lane, an English folk group.

Have yourselves a good weekend whatever you’re up to. As usual, feel free to share your top sounds down below –

PLEASE MAKE IT STOP

Ads that perpetuate harmful gender stereotypes such as a man struggling with household chores or girls being less academic than boys are to be banned, the regulator has announced.

The new rule – that ads must not include gender stereotypes which are likely to cause harm or serious or widespread offence – comes into effect in June following a consultation.

Am I the last sane man in the country, I wonder. It’s bad enough that there’s an advertising regulator. Like all such bodies, it’s been politicised. Which means it enforces radical left dogma.

So no more ads showing women struggling to park the motor. Which isn’t a “gender stereotype”, whatever that awful language is supposed to mean. It’s simply a reflection of reality. Women are simply not designed to park cars. Their spatial awareness capacities are suited to indoor spaces, such as kitchens.

Yeah yeah, mock all you like, but it’s not me bringing about a cold, joyless world. It’s people who use phrases like “gender stereotypes”.

WHAT IS THIS?

By Pete Moore On December 14th, 2018 at 6:47 pm

It turns out that rejecting a World Trade Brexit before asking the EU for a concession gets you less than nothing. You have to be stupefyingly deaf to reason and sense to think otherwise. Can you guess Theresa May’s top qualities?

Not only does this useless woman continue to abase herself before people who openly mock her in public, what’s that meeting hall all about? Who designed THAT? I’ve seen primary school classrooms and lunatic asylums with more tasteful decor, and they’re designed to not be broken. The people who commissioned it think they are the heirs of European Civilisation. My arse. They are insane.

In other “oooh scary” Brexit news, it’s been revealed that Britons will have to pay £6.30 to visit the EU, once we have rejoined the world of sovereign, independent and self-governing nations. I have news in return: we stout Yeomen will bear any burden, carry any cross and will take it all in our stride. Our birthrights are worth a damned sight more than a few quid. They could charge us a pony, a monkey, a ton or a bag. It makes no difference. Our sovereignty is priceless.

Of course I would gladly join my compatriots in stumping up, but if one has an Irish passport of convenience, well it would be churlish to waste the labours of the bureaucrats who made it, eh?

This is gonna be a long post……

By Patrick Van Roy On December 13th, 2018 at 11:25 pm

I just feel the need to elaborate and restate a few things….. I haven’t done a post like this before…. oh I’ve ranted but not like this. Please play the clips they are important to the Narrative.

SOCIALISTS NEVER LEARN

By Pete Moore On December 13th, 2018 at 6:44 pm

The Spanish government is attempting to solve its unpopularity with a 22 per cent rise in the statutory minimum wage. As always it’s the low skilled and already low paid who will suffer the most.

Someone has to pay for it, and that can only be employers, employees or consumers. Large corporations can absorb such costs much more easily than small firms, who are often the entry to work for the young and provide local jobs away from large towns.

For employees, the most frequent repercussions are reduced hours or the loss of their job, if the minimum wage exceeds their productivity. Minimum wages encourage employers to discriminate against lower skilled people, as evidenced in the large increase in teenage unemployment under minimum wage laws. This was once common knowledge, which is why racists once encouraged the implementation of minimum wage laws as a way to exclude lower-skilled non-white workers from the marketplace.

Consumers are impacted through higher prices, Since low-paid employees are also consumers, they are disproportionally affected. Price increases that accompany minimum wage hikes thus lower the real wages of those who are lucky enough to keep their jobs as new minimums are imposed. Moreover, as minimum wages force cash-strapped small business out of business, consumers enjoy fewer choices.

There’s one other effect. Prices are signals. They influence our preferences and allow us to make informed choices. Wages indicate to workers the value of work in various fields. Low wages would ordinarily inform a worker that it may be best to avoid work in low-wage areas, and seek employment elsewhere. However, when wages for a service do not decrease with a decrease in value for that service, the deterrent (in the form of lower wages) is not present to redirect the resource to better-valued uses. If, as certain people claim, minimum wages are insufficient to meet the needs of workers, then workers ought to shift to a different profession.

In the end, as unemployment and prices rise, the Spanish government will be long gone. The ignorant wreckers who yet again screwed up people and the economy a bit more will be living comfortably on their fat political pensions, gained from the people under threat of imprisonment if they don’t pay.
