The Sweet Hereafter

By Mahons On June 19th, 2020 at 10:01 pm

Sir Ian Holm passed away at the age of 88. An actor’s actor. It is stunning how many great actors England has produced. You may know him as Bilbo Baggins in The Lord of The Rings franchise, or the coach in Chariots of Fire, or the robot in Alien. If you truly want to watch a genius at work watch him in the tragic The Sweet Hereafter where he plays a father who seems to lose his soul as he tries to sign up the parents of children killed in a bus accident for a lawsuit. His scenes talking over the phone to his own addict daughter are stark and seem like a documentary. I cant recall him ever giving a bad performance, even if a movie was not that good. And he gave a lot of great performances in great movies.

ATW FRIDAY NIGHT JUKEBOX

Because Friday night is Music Night

Another week done in the loony bin which is the UK. I have to stop looking at news headlines. Each time I check, the country has gone even more insane.

At least we can rely on some things, like great Rock n Roll. Get it while you can though before someone with green hair and nose rings bans it. When I say great Rock n Roll I mean it. You simply will not hear a better number than this, by a great Rock n Roll band. Slade here wrote and recorded a song which stands comparison with any. And when we’ve all come to our senses and agreed with me that we must turn back time, we should stop off in the 1970s for a while.

Have fun, whatever your riot-filled Maoist weekend involves. As always, feel free to share your top sounds down below –

OUR CHILDREN WILL HATE US

By Pete Moore On June 19th, 2020 at 7:54 pm

The UK’s debt is now worth more than its economy after the government borrowed a record amount in May.

The £55.2bn figure was nine times higher than in May last year and the highest since records began in 1993.

The borrowing splurge sent total government debt surging to £1.95trn, exceeding the size of the economy for the first time in more than 50 years.

This is eye-watering debt which will strongly shape the UK’s century. Children yet unborn are already saddled with a terrible burden. The least we can do is stop making excuses and get back to work.

RONALD REAGAN WAS NEVER MORE RIGHT

WE NEED TO UNDO THE PAST

By Pete Moore On June 19th, 2020 at 7:11 pm

Some things should be pulled down. Some things stand for ugliness, brutishness and a hatred for the traditional. This is a very good photograph, taken yesterday when Emmanuel Macron was in town, at the Household Cavalry Museum. But it’s spoiled by that ugly 1960s carbuncle in the background. It’s like acne on a model’s face. Beauty matters, and brutalist architecture should be torn down.

Slave Owner

So, I am forced to change.

By Mike Cunningham On June 19th, 2020 at 1:39 pm

I resent the fact that I now have to alter purchasing and banking arrangements that have been in place, in my personal life, for over thirty-five years. Solely because of the blackmail and blackguarding of companies, banks and insurance companies regarding their alleged involvement in financing, insuring and profiting from slavery over three centuries ago, these same banks, insurance companies and food companies have been  targeted and threatened by  the anarchistic, Marxist bunch of thugs marching under the common banner of blm.

So why do I have to alter my arrangements which have been cemented by my family’s liking for certain basic foodstuffs, my own banking arrangements? 

Simply because they give in to Blackmail, they give in to pressure, they ‘Apologise’, they ‘Understand’ and promise to donate to Black & Ethnic Communities for their alleged centuries-old wrongdoing! Put bluntly, they haven’t  got a firm pair  of balls between the whole bunch. So, I shall have to buy a different brand of Rice, because ‘Uncle Ben’s Rice’, produced, packaged and marketed by Mars Foods is  to ‘evolve’ and move away from the ‘racial stereotype of the black farmer’ because it may allegedly offend certain thin-skinned, over-sensitive types with a political axe to grind of their own

I shall be terminating  my banking arrangements, because the top people of my Bank haven’t got the moral courage to stand their ground and state, “We were once those people, but we are not any longer, and what is more, we haven’t  been those people for over two-odd centuries. If you don’t like it, take your business elsewhere, but we shall not budge; we shall not apologise for the actions of our commercial ancestors, and we do not apologise for who we are, and were!

As the weeks go  by, I shall probably have to alter many things, but I shall not support any who buckle under the blackmail whip of this bunch of anarchists!  I have never been one for boycotts, for the cheap  alliances of bully boys, but I shall live my own life, and make my own choices, and would hope that many more will follow where I lead. I am an Englishman, I have only  ever knelt to one, and she still lives with me today. The only other I would kneel to is Her Majesty, if ever I was lucky enough to be near enough to renew a pledge of allegiance! 

 

DACA

By Patrick Van Roy On June 19th, 2020 at 3:03 am

The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision invalidating President Trump’s reversal of former President Obama’s DACA executive order was a victory for the illegal immigration lobby, but a stinging blow to common sense and the rule of law.  The grounds upon which the Roberts Court made this decision were ridiculous. The court stopped short of saying that Obama‘s edict was proper, but struck down Trump’s reversal because, supposedly, it did not express an adequate rationale for its order.  “We do not decide whether DACA or its rescission are sound policies,” Roberts said. “We address only whether the agency complied with the procedural requirement that it provide a reasoned explanation for its action. Here the agency failed to consider the conspicuous issues of whether to retain forbearance and what if anything to do about the hardship to DACA recipients.”  In the court’s prime Dissent, Justice Clarence Thomas nailed it.  “The majority does not even attempt to explain why a court has the authority to scrutinize an agency’s policy reasons for rescinding an unlawful program under the arbitrary and capricious microscope,” Thomas said. “The decision to countermand an unlawful agency action is clearly reasonable. So long as the agency’s determination of illegality is sound, our review should be at an end.”

Now whether or not you think DACA is a good thing or a bad thing, where you stand on the actual issue is irrelevant. What is relevant is the New Standard and Category of Law that the Supreme Court just created out of whole cloth.

The Constitution states that all Laws are created by Congress, the Legislative Branch. DACA is a Law that was created by President Obama. He wrote it and stated it was now the Law of the Land. President Trump did the same thing Obama did in regards to Obama’s DACA he voided it in the same manner it was created.

The Supreme Courts Ruling say’s he can’t do that, and the Law Stands.

The consequences of that Decision are that now Presidents can write Law, not only can they write Laws those Laws can not be overturned.

Just think of the fun…….
