Bring our Troops in Europe HOME!

By Patrick Van Roy On July 7th, 2018 at 3:28 pm

After 18 months of Donald Trump’s “America First” presidency, European leaders meeting with him next week fear the United States may change its traditional course and begin to bring American troops home from the continent.

It comes as nations, especially in Eastern Europe, are lobbying the United States to increase the number of troops on the continent as they worry about combating an increasingly aggressive Russia.

Trump has talked about bringing U.S. troops home from around the globe since he was on the campaign trail espousing a strategy he dubbed “America First” but he has yet to act.

President Trump’s harsh blast at NATO during a rally last night in Helena, Mont., was Europeans’ worst nightmare come to life, Western diplomatic sources tell Jonathan Swan and me:

Trump portrayed the alliance as one-sided, transactional and bad for the U.S., and seemed to suggest that U.S. military support is conditional on the Germans paying more, calling out “Angela” — the German chancellor.

It is time for the American Military to leave Europe to their own means.  The nations of Europe are at Peace. They stand independent (lmao). The American Military needs to be removed from Germany and all other Euro bases and relocated to the U.S. southern border.

Lies, Damned Lies, and Political Promises.

By Mike Cunningham On August 1st, 2015 at 11:39 am

When I was but eighteen years old, the lies and the deviant statements commenced, and they have continued, without pause or interruption, ever since. The barrage of position statements, government propaganda, newspaper, radio and the slow start of television ‘current affairs’ programmes hammered, or rather attempted to hammer home the  story that Europe would be good for Britain. Good for jobs, good for trade, everything would be rosy. When Edward Heath was making overtures to France and Germany about joining, there was a healthy scepticism within the electorate. So, despite his promise that no movement would be made without the full-hearted support of Parliament and people, he took us in, and the Parliamentary vote was only won by eight votes. No sound or sight of a Referendum then at all; we were not asked.

We were asked in 1975 by Harold Wilson if we wished to stay in, and all the lies continued, and as we had been told that the Commonwealth had been cast adrift, and all the trade negotiations with the EC were completed, and we would not be losing anything: we voted to stay in. Nothing was said about our fishing fleets being decommissioned, and fishing grounds being decimated by the Spanish and the French, that was all discovered later on.

The Thatcher years proved equally barren of the truth, partly because our Prime Minister didn’t realise how dangerous Europe and its Single Europe Act really was until it was too late. John Major proved himself a true Europe-lover, piloting through Parliament the Maastricht treaty by applauding our opt-outs, which weren’t really opt-anythings; as Europe swerved around the roadblocks, and brought in the Social Chapter through Health and Safety! The European Union, that creature of Jean Monnet, was born with that Treaty, and it has spread its tentacles ever outward from that date.

Fast forward to the Blair years, with ever more untruths perpetrated by the Master Liar himself, when he accepted and signed the Amsterdam Treaty. Asked? We weren’t even mentioned! With this Treaty came European citizenship, a Euro foreign policy, and all the rest of the euro-garbage. We were promised a veto, but, hey, that promise, like all the other ‘promises’ wasn’t worth the paper it wasn’t printed on.

Gordon Brown came late to the signing of the Lisbon Treaty, but didn’t give much weight to any question of whether the People should be asked, before signing up to ‘ever closer Union’, probably because he thought we were all ‘bigots’ anyway.

Enter Cameron, and his promised ‘Referendum’. He promises that the British people will have a choice, but only after ‘Reforms’ have been completed, or agreed, or something: which is fine, except: no-one has been told the extent, or limit, or indeed scope, of these mythical ‘Reforms’. Various briefings have emerged after ‘discussions’ with him, and her, and sometimes ‘them’; but the British people, who are being asked to decide if they wish to continue being governed from Brussels, or whether they wish to have their Sovereignty returned; have not got a single fact upon which to base their decisions. Ignore the fact that most of the ‘desirable’ options floated by commentators, politicians of all persuasions and senior civil servants all require Treaty Change, and treaty change needs every other Euro nation to agree, which will never ever happen.

As I wrote at the beginning, the lies continue, but grow ever more convoluted.

and the majority opinion is…….

This Polish bunch (Party) wants to give new meaning to the phrase ‘ever closer union’.

 

I’m all for it!

 

…and don’t mention Europe; its all Climate Change: Gottit?

By Mike Cunningham On March 23rd, 2014 at 11:40 am

I listened this morning to the Farming Programme, the premier programme from the BBC for both rural and farming communities in Great Britain. The whole slot was dedicated to a revisit to one farm, and one farming family, whose home and fields were devastated by the torrential downpours of the winter. The Somerset Levels, where this farmer’s family has lived for three generations, has always had flood problems, as was admitted by the farmer himself, but the interview concentrated on the fantastic response by volunteers to the problems of the entire Levels farming and rural community which had literally been washed away by the flood waters. From huge quantities of hay and silage from farmers based hundreds of miles away, hauled and delivered free of any charge whatsoever for the displaced cattle standing in borrowed barns; to the lady who made sandwiches to help feed the volunteers toiling to shore up the leaking sandbag barriers, they all received due praise.

afloodfarmThe farmer, first interviewed as he battled to arrange transport for his animals, was philosophical about the struggles ahead as he talked to the BBC about awaiting a mobile home to arrive so his family could once more be together in some semblance of normality, talked about the damage done to his home. with brickwork cracked, floors destroyed and the very stuff which everyone surrounds themselves laid out on the grass, prior to being ‘skipped’.

Mention was made of the amazingly short  time between the ‘normal’ flood water which had lain for a week or more, and the onslaught of nearly five feet of water as the huge amounts of rainfall moved forwards over the surrounding farms and fields. But strangely enough, just a few phrases were uttered about how this devastation had occurred in the first place. An off-hand remark about ‘the politics’ of the Somerset Levels, when the farmer talked about the lack of maintenance of flood prevention measures, dismissed by the BBC interviewer as unimportant, showed, as far as I am concerned, the deep, almost impenetrable brainwashing of BBC staff when it comes to any criticism whatsoever of European or even British government policies, with special emphasis not given to the mad policies and directives of the Environmental Agency, with their earnest desire to save the bloody birds and habitats, and forget about those noisy farmers, who simply could not understand that the flooding was in their own ‘best interests’!

 

MAJOR FLOODS HIT CENTRAL EUROPE

By Pete Moore On June 6th, 2013 at 9:11 pm

Severe floods hit central Europe this week. As far as I can tell it’s Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland, Austria and Germany that have been effected. This is Meissen, near Dresden, where the Elbe has burst its bank. I think that one or two ATW regulars live in central Europe. Do we know anyone affected?

The Secret Super-State

By Mike Cunningham On June 5th, 2012 at 4:56 pm

Many things have been written and spoken regarding the many failings of Gordon Brown, In fact, if they were all shuffled together, they would probably form a rather large book. But the one redeeming stance taken by Gordon Brown sets him up as possible the most unlikely saviour this sovereign Nation has ever known.

I refer to the decision to block any possible move by Blair towards joining the Euro.

Knowing the ‘Comrades’ and their beloved ‘Projects; as we now do, is it likely that Brown himself foresaw this, which is why he nearly resigned in order to prevent it?

As the old card game saying goes, “Read it and Weep”, for there are many in or adjacent to power today who still believe that the Euro is the only game in town!

WANT TO KNOW WHAT DAY IT IS? DON’T ASK THE HOME SECRETARY

By Pete Moore On April 19th, 2012 at 4:23 pm

Either you really couldn’t make it up, or they really don’t want him to go.

Two days ago Theresa May, the Home Secretary, brandished a piece of paper and declared “extradition for Qatada in our time”. Today, the Council of Europe says: “Oh no you don’t”. The BBC carries the breaking news.

I can barely bring myself to follow this saga anymore, so excuse me if I get it wrong. It seems that on Tuesday, May said the way was clear for Qatada to be deported, following a completed deal with Jordan and the passing of a deadline for him to appeal the decision to some Grand Chamber of High Priests of the European Court of Human Rights. She triumphantly ordered his arrest ahead of deportation that day. Only he did appeal that decision on Tuesday, his counsel claiming the deadline for an appeal was midnight on Tuesday, teeing up two days of spin and arguments over who was right and who was wrong. Theresa May and the legions of legal brains at the Home Office were wrong, we’ve just discovered. So Qatada doesn’t go afterall, because we’re not foreign and we obey laws and treaties, and he’s gonna hang around for a long time yet, and Theresa May looks even more stupid than at the beginning of the week, which is quite an achievement.
Can we get back to governing ourselves now?

“The noise, dear boy; and the people!”

By Mike Cunningham On April 18th, 2012 at 6:42 am

The noise, of death and destruction; the people, who were annihilated or who fought to prevent such annihilation, were prevalent all over the world in the years 1939-1945: because those were the years of possibly the greatest test of true democracy ever envisaged.

To use the words of King George the 6th but we can only do the right as we see the right, “. We in the British Isles, along with France, declared war on Nazi Germany, on Italy and later on, of course, on Japan. One of our allies was of course Stalin’s Russia, the Nation who perhaps suffered most both at the hands of the Nazis as well as at the hands, or rather the bayonets, of Stalin’s ruthless rule.

For six years, war tore apart Europe, large portions of Africa and the Far East; millions died in the cause of defeating the Axis of Nazi Germany, Italy and Japan. The oceans of the world were darkened with the oil and blood of sinking ships and dying men; the air was filled with the noise of aircraft, bullets and shells.

But you won’t see or hear much about this titanic struggle if you visit the House of European History in Brussels.

Strange, but true!

I PICKED THE WRONG WEEK TO STOP SHOOTING MYSELF IN THE HEAD

By Pete Moore On March 8th, 2012 at 12:02 pm

Sexist remarks and wolf-whistles could become criminal offences

PM to announce today that UK will sign up to Council of Europe’s convention on violence against women, which could mean criminalising unwanted verbal conduct

It’s like I’ve woken up in some marxist-feminist hellhole. Oh wait-

I might as well say cheerio now. It can’t be long till I’m in chokey for some crime against wimmin. Revving the motor or doing up my shoelaces in a sexist way, something like that.

If I’m allowed parcels I’d appreciate the occasional book about how we were once a free people, if they’re not samizdat by then.

BACKDOOR IMMIGRATION…

By David Vance On December 29th, 2011 at 9:50 am

I read that EUs rules are letting thousands of migrants into Britain ‘by the back door’.

Nearly 11,000 moved here this year on the basis of having been given citizenship in another EU country. The total, revealed in figures from the Office for National Statistics, is up more than a third on the 8,000 cases recorded in 2006. Many of the migrants would normally have been barred from taking up residence in Britain.

So, another EU country gives foreign immigrants citizenship and they make a bee-line for the UK. Once again we see the dangerous folly of the UK remaining in the EU. We cannot defend our borders whilst such pernicious legislation essentially undermines our sovereignty.
