To quote that fine man ‘Yogi Berra’

By Mike Cunningham On September 23rd, 2013 at 3:46 pm

Its like ‘Deja Vu’ all over again.

When the ‘Farce of Qana’ was being dissected by bloggers and citizen journalists, when the true levels of deceit were unravelled surrounding the ‘Israeli Savagery’ before an uncaring world, no-one took much notice, especially all the newspapers whose printed shock and horror was reflected in the words of Western politicians the world over.

The Mother Superior of St James’ Monastery in Qara has remained silent for quite a while, But she now speaks, and speaks with authority. Mother Agnes Mariam el-Salib, who is a Melkite Catholic nun who has lived and worked in Syria for 20 years, has helped compile and reveal yet another Propaganda Coup, authored by the Jihadi Militias fighting the Assad Regime, and believed in its entirety by Obama, Cameron, Hollande and the rest of the usual suspects.

On the one side you have a ragged selection of bearded Jihadis, all of whom cry for vengeance by ‘The West’; and then you see the sober words of Mother Agnes Mariam.

Check out the videos, check out the way in which this ‘Atrocity’ really happened; and then maybe say a silent prayer for the dead and missing of some eleven villages in the mountains of Lattakiah!

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.

CDC: 1-IN-5 AMERICAN CHILDREN MAY HAVE MENTAL DISORDER

By Pete Moore On May 19th, 2013 at 7:19 pm

CBS: According to a study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, up to 20 percent of American children are suffering from mental disorders such as attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, depression and autism.

Total cobblers, in part because ADHD doesn’t exist. The piece goes on:

The CDC data was collected between 1994 and 2011, and it shows that the number of children being diagnosed with mental disorders has been steadily growing. The study did not conclude exactly why the numbers are increasing.

Probably there are a number of reasons why increasing numbers of children have been diagnosed with mental disorders. Sitting them in front of electronic babysitters can’t be doing young minds any good, but it’s a massive leap from filling their heads with mush to a mental disorder. In the end I’m still persuaded by Dr Thomas Szasz’s explanation, that the problem is an epidemic of psychiatry. It’s a very lucrative epidemic for armies of pill-pushers.

 

IGNORE EVERYTHING GOVERNMENT SAYS ABOUT FOOD

By Pete Moore On May 15th, 2013 at 7:35 pm

Better safe than sorry …

Can you believe that the CDC’s “guidelines” on salt are not just misguided, but may actually cause health problems? Say it ain’t so! A new CDC study says that the 1500 mg-level (whatever that is) long sanctioned by Nanny is not just wrong, but that it may lead to an increased risk of heart attacks and death. This is not news to ATW regulars. (Coming next: saturated fat and cholesterol aren’t bad for you afterall.)

More than an increased risk of heart attacks, a reduced salt intake can lead to many problems. So enjoy glorious salt, just not that rubbish, bleached out stuff. Goodness knows what’s in that, but it includes plenty of chemicals. I recommend a decent sprinkling of Maldon Sea Salt with every dish. You’ve never tasted salt ’till you’ve had some of this.

SURPRISE!

By Pete Moore On May 12th, 2013 at 6:55 pm

When some describe them as government mouthpieces …

The president of ABC News and the president of CBS News each have siblings in the White House working for Obama.

I’d say it’s a very important point to remember, whenever these organisations report on White House business, that it’s a family affair.

CAMERON: TORIES MAY SUPPORT EU REFERENDUM BEFORE 2015

By Pete Moore On May 1st, 2013 at 6:55 pm

First they ignore you, then they ridicule you …

How scared of UKIP are the Tories? With council elections tomorrow, Cameron is now rehashing the old lies about referendums, this time talking about (though not promising) one before the next general election.

He’d be better off drafting his letter of resignaton for Friday morning.

FOAMING AT THE MOUTH

By Pete Moore On April 26th, 2013 at 10:33 am

Put me down as unpersuaded in this Syrian chemical attack story. It seems to have started this week with Israeli General Itai Brun claiming that victims foaming at the mouth is proof of sarin gas use. It might be proof of shaving cream as far as I can tell, or is it toothpaste?

The US, which had denied having any evidence of chemical weapons use in Syria, suddenly ran with it. Predictably, Cameron has a red line for intervention which has been crossed too. Fancy that. Haven’t we been here before?

ATW QOTD

By Pete Moore On April 23rd, 2013 at 11:13 am

“Look, we live in a very dangerous world. We know there are people who want to take away our freedoms.”

Michael Bloomberg, explaining that the constitution will have to be got around in order to, erm … take away some freedoms. Nah, it’s not fear and paranoia eating away at his soul. He’s just not letting a crises go to waste.

BBC: MOTIVE STILL UNCLEAR FOR BOSTON ATTACKS

By Pete Moore On April 23rd, 2013 at 10:51 am

Nope, no motive over here, none over there either …

It’s possible that the BBC is remaining scrupulous in not ascribing any motive for the attacks carried out by the brothers, who just happen to be muslims, until incontrovertible evidence appears. On the other hand, just three hours after the bombings, its flagship news programme was happy to speculate about Right Wing Americans being responsible. Possible motives then alright.

Still, it depends in part on what you mean by “motive”. In my opinion there are very few people on the planet who will kill innocents purely because of religion. There are some who will do it because they’re simply bad people with little sympathy for others, and maybe also chauvinistic, narcissistic and highly arrogant too. However Islam is central, which The Telegraph focuses on, describing the older brother as a domineering “svengali” who became radicalised.

That might be the whole truth, but it’s a bit simplistic for me. Apparently this pair were quite normal not so long ago, and some suggest the younger one was led on by the other. But becoming radicalised is a process, not something which happens overnight. So where did that happen and who else was involved? Even then, the step to murderous attacks on innocents is still a great one. How is that final leap triggered?

I still think there’s some very murky business in the backstory which has yet to come out. The American conservative commentator Michael Savage has spent the last two days endorsing this hypothesis that the brothers were double agents, recruited to inform on terror networks in the Caucuses but who then went over to that side. Maybe, maybe not, but there’s a story that’s still to emerge.

THAT GOOD OLD BEEB BALANCE

By Pete Moore On April 10th, 2013 at 12:15 pm

Are you still paying for this trash?

bbc-maggie

The state broadcaster wasted no time in becoming a vast national troller, filling the airwaves with every old Lefty they could drag up. I genuinely wish I had a TV Licence to burn.
