EXCITING TIMES IN BRUSSELS

By Pete Moore On July 16th, 2019 at 6:22 pm

The EU Parliament votes today on who should be the EU Grand Poobah. The candidates are:

A) Ursula von der Leyen, or;

B) Ursula von der Leyen.

The good news for fans of wacko identity politics, EU armies, eco-communism and centralised command economies on a Soviet scale is that this might be your day. For anyone with a brain and an ounce of self-respect, the great dissident Lord Farage says what we all know, deep down, is the truth –

Reps. Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez…. 

Newly seated Representatives in America’s House of Representatives…. the People’s House.  I believe these four Ladies earned their place and deserve to be heard. Each one ran for office. Each one Won their seat in the Peoples House fair and square.

This is what our system is based on, the Freedom to speak your mind and your views on how you believe things should be done. These women ran for office on these views and Won, their constituencies agree with the views and opinions that these 4 woman promote.

You can disagree with absolutely everything they have to say, but as granted by natures creator they have the right to say it.

WIDDERS IS SO GOOD

The universities are becoming thought-free zones under the tyrannical rule of extreme Left Wing “social scientists” and student unions. Sir Roger Scruton, the great anti-communist hero, recently described the “witch-hunting hysteria” which has returned, not in the Eastern Europe which he helped to liberate but here, in the UK.

It’s more important than ever, therefore, to stare down the snowflakes, progressives and New Left gauleiters who dare to tell other people what they can and cannot think and say. Another brave dissident, Ann Widdecombe, beautifully told the Oxford Union what’s what. We’re all obliged to say exactly what we think. When we hold our tongue or circumscribe what we say for fear of someone choosing to take offence, or because of what others might choose to think of us, we let down humanity –

HE WON’T BACK DOWN

You have to admire the way that President Trump stands up to bullies. The Bolsheviks hate that he speaks his mind and, more importantly, says what millions of people think. That is, if you don’t like it where you are then pack your bags. For his plain speaking and simple wisdom, the Bolsheviks shriek and howl in outrage.

After his tweets yesterday about those anti-American Democrats, he came out swinging again today. You have to admire a fighter –

Or, another explanation, which is that the Bolsheviks never learn. Donald Trump is a master of picking the battlefield. He doesn’t fight on a battlefield of their choosing, he picks his spot and makes his enemies come to him. Right now his supporters are for him more than ever. He makes those dumb anti-American commies mad with rage and they love him for it.

And those dumb anti-American commies will always fall for it, because everything they don’t like makes dumb anti-American commies mad with rage.

IT WAS NEVER IN DOUBT

I can’t take these cliffhangers. They’re great when you’re neutral, but when you’re a partisan it does you in. I turned away from the Cricket World Cup Final twice. Just can’t take it. England beat New Zealand by literally the tightest of margins. The score was level at the end of the match, both teams on 241 runs. For the first time a Super Over was needed. Both teams scored 15. England won because they hit more boundaries. You cannot get tighter than that. With the shadows long, the final ball saw the Kiwis needing 2 runs to win –

And with that I was off down the garden like Jos Buttler when he smashed the stumps.

Meanwhile, just across the Thames, Djokovic beat Federer 7-6 1-6 7-6 4-6 13-12. They’d still be playing now if the final set wasn’t truncated at 12-12 for a tie-break.

SWEET DREAMS ARE MADE OF THIS

Official guidance on how many hours people should sleep each night is set to be introduced by ministers.

That’s what the country voted for in 2017, to be told when to go to bed by the Tory Party.

Democrats play politics with defense

By Patrick Van Roy On July 12th, 2019 at 8:41 pm

Now this is nothing new. This is par for the course of both sides since Spending Bills are not just spending bills, but places to place either sides little pet topics and projects in things that must be passed.

Here is what the Dems stuck in the Defense budget.

Heading into the NDAA debate, progressives warned they thought the bill’s $733 billion price tag was too high.

An amendment to trim $16.8 billion from the bill failed, 115-307.

But progressives also said they could support the NDAA despite the funding concern if their other amendments passed. They were particularly concerned about amendments related to President Trump’s war powers.

Earlier Friday, the House passed an amendment to prevent Trump from launching a military strike on Iran without prior congressional approval.

Democrats also approved amendments to block emergency arms sales to Saudi Arabia, end U.S. military support to the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen and repeal the 2002 authorization for the use of military force that authorized the Iraq War, among others.  Outside of war powers, amendments touched on a number of progressive priorities, including reversing Trump’s transgender military ban, giving federal employees 12 weeks of paid family leave, prohibiting military parades for political purposes and banning Pentagon funds from being used at Trump-owned properties.

No Republicans voted in support of the bill Friday. The White House threatened to veto the bill earlier this week.
