In Virginia’s Capital there’s a Rally

By Patrick Van Roy On January 20th, 2020 at 4:53 pm

The state of Virginia has elected a Full Democrat Majority into it’s Legislator along with a Democrat Governor. Being good Democrats the first thing they did was attack Law Abiding Gun Owners.  The problem they now face is a real one. Where the Dems definitely have the votes they don’t control the state.

This is the Political Map

The Blue areas are controlled by Democrats the Red by Republicans and a very heavy percentage are gun owners. The gun owners are upset at the State Government for attempting to remove their 2nd Amendment Right. Almost every County Government in the State has declared itself a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary. In a middle finger to the Nations Cities that have declared themselves Sanctuary’s from Federal Immigration Laws these Counties have declared themselves Sanctuary’s from State Gun Laws.

Now today there is a protest against the State Government. Governor Northrop has declared a State of Emergency. He’s screaming NeoNazi Gun Nuts are coming to kill everyone. He’s Canceled State Open Carry Laws by fiat, he’s called in military units to supplement the Capital Police, there are even snipers on the roofs……

Here is an attendee.

 

HUFFPO: NSA PLANNED TO DISCREDIT PORN USERS HOLDING ‘RADICAL’ VIEWS

By Pete Moore On November 27th, 2013 at 9:03 pm

Forget terror plots, this is what the spying is really all about. Reports the BBC:

The US authorities have studied online sexual activity and suggested exposing porn site visits as a way to discredit people who spread radical views, the Huffington Post news site has reported.

It published a document, leaked by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden, identifying two Muslims said to be vulnerable to accusations of “online promiscuity”.

An official said this was unsurprising.

But campaign group Privacy International called it “frightening”.

The idea that the State must intrude into the furthest corners of our lives to combat terror attacks was always obvious drivel, but then everything the States says is a lie. The gargantuan security state is directed at us, it’s internal enemies, because the State is most paranoid about internal threats against it. The chief threat, of course, is that the people will one day refuse to believe any more of its lies. Once that happens the State is sunk. The State, therefore, will know everything about everyone, all the better to threaten any enemy with ruin, hence the spying. It’s simply arming itself against everyone.

ANGLO IRISH BANKERS “TRICKED” GOVERNMENT INTO BAILOUT

By Pete Moore On June 24th, 2013 at 9:12 pm

Anglo-Irish-Bank-LogoThe Irish people were looted of tens of billions to bail out Anglo Irish bank, and it was done on the basis of lies and trickery. The Irish Independent newspaper has published secret recordings from 2008, which reveal two senior Anglo Irish executives – John Bowe, then head of capital markets, and Peter Fitzgerald, the former head of retail banking – spilling the beans.

In essence, John Bowe knew that the 7bn euros asked for in a bailout was nowhere near enough, and that the real bailout required was much higher. At the time, the 7bn requested was, he said, a figure “picked out of my arse”. The strategy was to play the government for total suckers, lure it and central bank in, to ensure “they had skin in the game”, so that when the full extent of the black hole was revealed the bailouts had to continue. It worked and the Irish people were looted of 30bn euros.

How could it be that billions of taxpayers money was commited without thorough and rigorous audits? Well this is how government spends money all the time. Yet again, Milton Friedman is proven right in that spending other people’s money on somebody else (which is all government spending) is the worst possible way of handling money. Those doing the spending have no care for the money or for what it buys.

SNOWDEN CHARGED WITH ESPIONAGE; GCHQ EVEN WORSE THAN THE YANKS

By Pete Moore On June 22nd, 2013 at 4:05 pm

Fox accuses hens of raiding the coop

Federal prosecutors have filed a sealed criminal complaint against Edward Snowden. The United States has asked Hong Kong to detain him on a provisional arrest warrant. Snowden was charged with espionage, theft and conversion of government property.

The Telegraph reports the possiblility of Hong Kong authorities complying, though I’d have thought that Peking would rather like to keep Snowden on their turf. He knows the extent and methods of US state security organs. You’d think that the Chinese government would like a chat with him at least rather than hand him back.

Michael Rozeff posits an interesting question: how would Americans have regarded the hypothetical whistle-blower Eduard Snowdenski, who might have spilled the beans on te NKVD prior to defecting? Probably a brave hero, I’d say.

What a surprise that GCHQ is chief among the snoopers. According to The Guardian’s latest leaks from Snowden, those parasitic doughnut-munchers have programmes “aimed at scooping up as much online and telephone traffic as possible”, and that “this is all being carried out without any form of public acknowledgement or debate”.

“It’s not just a US problem. The UK has a huge dog in this fight,” Snowden told the Guardian. “They [GCHQ] are worse than the US.”

Did politicians have any idea that GCHQ has been strip mining our private information and handing it all over to their fellow doughnut-munching parasites in the US? Either (as I suspect) they did not, or they did, which suggests they’re complicit in espionage against the British people for and on behalf of a foreign country.

Citizens are reminded that terrorists hate us for our freedoms.

NO.10 REFUSES TO SAY IF CAMERON WOULD EAT GM FOOD

By Pete Moore On June 20th, 2013 at 7:45 pm

How interesting.

It reminds me of Blair refusing to confirm if his children had been given the MMR vaccine or seperate shots. The silence is often all the answer we need.

So the Prime Minister’s office refuses ten times to say if he would eat GM food. This comes on the day that Owen Paterson, the Environment Secretary, claims that GM foods are safer than non-GM.

Now I don’t know either way. I don’t claim that eating GM foods will result in diseases and deformations in future years. I simply don’t know if GM foods are perfectly safe or if it’s folly to diddle with the genes in our food. I simply make my own choices in shopping. That involves organic where possible and will never include GM foods. Your own mileage may vary.

As usual, the links and connections are most important in figuring out where policy originates from.

BERNANKE TO PUT DOWN HIS HELICOPTER?

By Pete Moore On June 20th, 2013 at 2:49 pm

The Chairman of the Federal Reserve has said that money-printing will wind down. The result is massive sell-offs and declining prices today in all asset classes.

This is no surprise.

Investment markets and asset prices have become the plaything of central banks. The trillions that he Fed alone has pumped out must go somewhere. There is some $3.4trillion sitting in bank reserves, going nowhere, but trillions more have gone out, since 2008, into property, stocks and commodities. The result has been gross economic distortions, little open price discovery and even more malinvestments on the back of rock-bottom interest rates.

When the money tap is turned off, or even signalled as with Bernanke’s words, markets fluctuate massively as investors run for cover.

Corrections should have been allowed to happen in 2008. Instead, governments and central banks responded with the greatest exercise in money printing ever, which not only blocked any possiblity of economies correcting themselves, it piled more malinvestments on top of those already existing. All it did was delay the reckoning, because markets always, in the end, win out over government distortions.

Today’s falls indicate that gains across asset classes in the last few years have been down mainly to the money press. When the tap is turned off properly is when we’ll get the real correction. Prices won’t just fall, the queston is by how much. It is inevitable and unavoidable.

IT MUST HAVE PAINED OUR MASTERS TO ADMIT THIS

By Pete Moore On June 20th, 2013 at 2:09 pm

The Crown Prosecution Service has published advice on what the peons may say: “Guidelines on prosecuting cases involving communications sent via social media”

Paras 34, 40-41 and 44-45 get to the point, as does para 35, which says that Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights takes precedence:

Everyone has the right to freedom of expression. This right shall include the freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart information and ideas without interference by public authority and regardless of frontiers …

Para 40 states that “prosecutors should only proceed with cases under section 1 of the Malicious Communications Act 1988 and section 127 of the Communications Act 2003 where they are satisfied there is sufficient evidence that the communication in question is more than:

  • Offensive, shocking or disturbing; or
  • Satirical, iconoclastic or rude comment; or
  • The expression of unpopular or unfashionable opinion about serious or trivial matters, or banter or humour, even if distasteful to some or painful to those subjected to it.”

In short, it seems that only a specific threat to a person is verboten. Old Holborn has more.

 

US ARMS INC. TO SUPPLY THE TERRORISTS IN SYRIA

By Pete Moore On June 14th, 2013 at 4:51 pm

The neocons make their move. Obama confirms that his paymasters will supply the terrorists, butchers and cannibals tearing Syria apart. Five minutes later the UK and France join in, with The Telegraph reporting that the three gangs (not “us or “we”) are meeting to decide how to run them weapons in.

Remember this and all the other surrenders to terror when we’re next supposd to believe that “we don’t talk to terrorists”. Of course they do, they always do, and now they’re again supplying the arms to terrorists so they can terrorise. Remember also that no evidence of sarin gas use by Assad has been presented. WMD lies? Fancy that! But they have to lie because the truth is that Assad is winning, and they just don’t like Assad. Do they know what the consequences will be? Of course not. We’ve seen that they have no idea. We know it.

So on the word of professonal spokesliars we’re supposed to believe that Assad is the bad one. The other side are “the rebels” see. Even when they murder in cold blood, and set off car bombs, and strafe kneeling prisoners with AK47s and cut out and chew into the hearts of slain enemies, they’re “the rebels” and now our money is taken to enable them to carry on terrorising. It’s a wicked, evil thing, but that’s our governors. Michael Rozeff describes them perfectly:

Neocons are a contemptible, vile, evil and despicable lot. Obama threw in with them on Iran sanctions, on Libya, on drone warfare throughout the world, on assassination policy, on government spying, on persecution of whistleblowers, and on government secrecy. Count Obama as a neocon. He too is a contemptible lying knave, a dishonest and unscrupulous scoundrel, intent as are the necons, on expanding  the American empire. This does not create a better world, I am sorry to say, but the neocons are too blind to see and understand this.

HAGUE: SPIES DON’T TRAWL OUR INFO

By Pete Moore On June 10th, 2013 at 6:18 pm

Well, not British spies …

The old dictum is that the you should never believe anything until it has been officially denied. In that case we can now assume that the security wing of the state is spying on us.

Following the revelation that GCHQ (the UK’s NSA) commissioned 197 reports from the PRISM programme last year, Hague says that they do not “indiscriminately trawl” our emails, and that he has a “high level of confidence” that British intelligence agencies act within the law. Which begs the question: what does the law say then?

Hague didn’t address the obvious fact that the National Stasi Agency is spying on us. If not, how did it come up with 197 intelligence reports? He also deplores the leaks which have happened. Well I deplore foreigners spying on the British people and keeping our emails on their servers. I also should have a reasonable expection that a British Foreign Secretary will tell the feds to back off, but we’re well past the age of government ministers defending our liberties.

Why is the NSA allowed to spy on us and keep our info? Maybe that gets around laws which restrict the spooks at GCHQ: “Hey mate, you do the spying and let us have the info when we call for it.” That’s what it sounds like to me.
