ALL CULTURES EQUAL…?

By David Vance On March 31st, 2014 at 9:01 pm

Multiculturalists insist that we must NOT judge other cultures and that one is no matter than the other!

A man has been left without genitals and with three missing toes after a witch doctor told him that losing his body parts would make him rich. Chamangeni Zulu, from Malawi, has been hospitalised at Chipata General Hospital in Zambia, near the Malawi border, after he allowed the hyena to eat his manhood. Mr Zulu told the Times of Zambia yesterday that he was promised by a witch doctor that by sacrificing his body parts he would become rich.

Just as well there is no NHS out there, things would have been REALLY bad for Mr Zulu.

ZUT ALORS

Socialism always ends in miserable failure.

 

French President Francois Hollande has reacted to a humiliating setback at the polls by appointing Interior Minister Manuel Valls as his new prime minister. Mr Hollande decided to axe current Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault after his Socialist Party lost more than 150 towns and cities to the main opposition and far-right in municipal elections on Sunday.

Officials at the prime minister’s official residence, Matignon, confirmed that Mr Ayrault and the government he headed had resigned. Waking up to headlines that included “A rout”, “A slap” and “A kick up the backside”, Mr Hollande was left with little option but to order a radical shake-up of his deeply unpopular government, which is seen by many voters as drifting hopelessly in the face of a stagnant economy, persistently high unemployment and falling living standards for many people.

Readers may recall Labour leader Ed Miliband PRAISING Hollande in 2012, proclaiming they would make a “new Europe’ together….quite.

NO FAITH IN THE POLICE…

By David Vance On March 31st, 2014 at 8:49 pm

And people wonder why people lose faith in the Police?

A Christian street preacher who was held by police without food or water for 15 hours after he was arrested over comments he made to two gay teenagers has been given £13,000 in compensation. John Craven was held in Manchester after two boys claimed they were offended by his views on homosexuality. The 57-year-old said the experience in September 2011 had been “distressing”. Greater Manchester Police agreed to compensate Mr Craven after he alleged a breach of his human rights.

And WHAT was his “crime” that merited such brutal treatment?

Mr Craven, who has regularly preached in Manchester city centre for seven years, was approached by the boys while he was preaching about salvation.

He said the teenagers asked him what he thought of gays, which he had answered by quoting from the Bible’s teachings on the subject, before adding that “whilst God hates sin, He loves the sinner”.

He said the pair then began to kiss in front of him and act out sexual acts. The boys then reported Mr Craven to a nearby mounted police constable, who placed him under arrest for “public order offences”.

NO APOLOGY REQUIRED…

Seen this?

An Irish judge who said he believed “Muslims feel they can actually beat their wives”, has retracted his comments and apologised after widespread anger. The Tallaght District Court Judge, Anthony Halpin, had been referring to a Somali man accused of burgling his ex-wife’s home, carrying a knife into the house while she slept, according to the Irish Examiner.

Defence solicitor John O’Leary told the court, which is in the largest town in South Dublin, Khadar Younis had been divorced by a Muslim cleric under the Koran and that his ex wife, Kara Ibrahim, wished to drop the case. “I think Muslims feel they can actually beat their wives,” Halpin said in response. In a statement, Halpin retracted his comments after human rights groups and a Labour minister called on him to apologise.

Here’s the Hadith…

Muslim (4:2127) – Muhammad struck his favorite wife, Aisha, in the chest one evening when she left the house without his permission.  Aisha narrates, “He struck me on the chest which caused me pain.”

and The Koran

Qur’an (38:44) – “And take in your hand a green branch and beat her with it, and do not break your oath…”

Now, if some Muslim men think they can beat their wives, perhaps we can understand WHY,  your honour.

PAT BUCHANAN: WALK A MILE IN PUTIN’S SHOES

By Pete Moore On March 31st, 2014 at 7:53 pm

I see that John Kerry met with Sergei Lavrov, the Russian Foreign Minister, in Paris yesterday. Talks failed to agree ways “to reduce tensions” over Ukraine. Washington could try butting out of business thousands of miles away, in particular it could try not overthrowing governments on Russia’s border.

Pat Buchanan does that rare (below) thing for an American conservative: he imagines himself in Putin’s shoes with Putin’s life experience and worldview. It’s a short, thoughtful piece and I think he gets it, echoing similar thoughts by Peter Htchens. No, this is not to support Putin or his actions, it’s simply to understand in some small way the most powerful man in a very important and proud country. I commend it particularly to Americans who, in my limited experience, find it difficult to imagine themselves in someone else’s shoes, or to flip a map around and look at the geopolitical matter from the other side. No, this is not a dig at Americans, it’s just an honest observation. I might be right, and if so it would be interesting to discuss why, or I might be wrong, in which case I’m just mistaken.

What Would You Do If You Were in Putin’s Shoes?

As the old saying goes, you cannot truly understand a man until you have walked a mile in his shoes.

Perhaps Americans, a fortunate tribe, should try to see the world from the vantage point of the Russian people and Vladimir Putin, and, as the poet Robert Burns said, “see ourselves as others see us.”

At 35, Putin was a rising star in the elite secret police, the KGB, of a superpower with a worldwide empire.

The USSR was almost three times as large as the United States. Its European quadrant was half of the Old Continent. The Soviet Empire extended from the Elbe River in Central Germany to the Bering Strait across from Alaska. It encompassed thirteen time zones.

North to south, the USSR reached from above the Arctic Circle down to the Middle East. Beyond the contiguous empire were Soviet bases from Cam Ranh Bay in Vietnam to Tartus in Syria to Cienfuegos in Cuba.

Consider, then, what the last dozen years of the 20th century must have been like for proud Russian patriots and nationalists.

First, the European empire suddenly and wholly collapsed. East Germany, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Rumania, Bulgaria all broke away to join the West. The Red Army came home, undefeated, but also unwanted and even detested.

The Warsaw Pact, the rival to NATO, dissolved.

James Lovelock: environmentalism has become a religion

Scientist behind the Gaia hypothesis says environment movement does not pay enough attention to facts and he was too certain in the past about rising temperatures.

Environmentalism has “become a religion” and does not pay enough attention to facts, according to James Lovelock.

The 94 year-old scientist, famous for his Gaia hypothesis that Earth is a self-regulating, single organism, also said that he had been too certain about the rate of global warming in his past book, that “it’s just as silly to be a [climate] denier as it is to be a believer” and that fracking and nuclear power should power the UK, not renewable sources such as windfarms.

Speaking to the Guardian for an interview ahead of a landmark UN climate science report on Monday on the impacts of climate change, Lovelock said of the warnings of climate catastrophe in his 2006 book, Revenge of Gaia: “I was a little too certain in that book. You just can’t tell what’s going to happen.”

“It [the impact from climate change] could be terrible within a few years, though that’s very unlikely, or it could be hundreds of years before the climate becomes unbearable,” he said.

Lovelock’s comments appear to be at odds with dire forecasts from a report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change on Monday, which leaked versions show will warn that even small temperature rises will bring “abrupt and irreversible changes” to natural systems, including Arctic sea ice and coral reefs.

Asked if his remarks would give ammunition to climate change sceptics, he said: “It’s just as silly to be a denier as it is to be a believer. You can’t be certain.”

Talking about the environmental movement, Lovelock says: “It’s become a religion, and religions don’t worry too much about facts.” The retired scientist, who worked at the Medical Research Council, describes himself as an “old-fashioned green.”

Lovelock reiterated his support for fracking for shale gas, which has been strongly backed by David Cameron and the government but vigorously opposed by anti-fracking activists and local people at sites from Salford to Balcombe in West Sussex.

“The government is too frightened to use nuclear, renewables won’t work –because we don’t have enough sun – and we can’t go on burning coal because it produces so much CO2, so that leaves fracking. It produces only a fraction of the amount of CO2 that coal does, and will make Britain secure in energy for quite a few years. We don’t have much choice,” he said.

Hot Zone

By The Troll On March 30th, 2014 at 2:31 pm

ebola_virus_400_01One of the most terrifying books I ever read was the Hot Zone.  It’s a true story about the Ebola Virus. It’s a book I highly recommend on a good dreary evening. It reads like a Novel, but is a case study of real events.

The strains of Ebola have an average case fatality rate of approximately 83%.  It is a hemorrhagic fever. You bleed out. If we were using old terms for plague this would probably be called the Red Plague.  No one knows for sure what the origin of the virus is, but it is highly contagious and kills it’s host in a horrible manner.

Guinea is racing to contain a deadly Ebola epidemic spreading from its southern forests to the capital Conakry.  The break outs of this disease usually doesn’t last long. The locations it tends to strike are usually remote. The spread of the disease is halted due to the death rate, and location of the break outs.

There is no cure, no treatment, no vaccine, if you contract the disease you have an 80% chance of dying by drowning in your own blood.

Eight cases of Ebola have been confirmed in Conakry, the Guinean health ministry said late Friday, including one fatality.

Across the country, “the total number of suspected cases recorded from January to 28 March 2014 is 111 cases of haemorrhagic fever including 70 deaths … or a fatality rate of 63 percent,” the ministry said in a statement.

Samples taken from 45 of the suspect cases included 19 which tested positive for Ebola. The World Health Organization said Liberia had reported eight suspected cases of Ebola fever, including six deaths, while Sierra Leone had reported six suspected cases, five of them fatal.

Remember not all bad news is political.

 

MOTHER’S DAY…

Today is Mother’s Day here in the UK and my best wishes to all the Mums who read this. It’s an odd day for me. As some readers know, my Mum has final stages Alzheimers and it has been some years since she knew who I was. I have visited her in the nursing home and it is pretty grim, no speech, no recognition, possible blindness…sad.

On a cheerier note, my wife is being taken out for the day for a champagne afternoon tea at a newish iconic Belfast location. The clue is that she might get a sinking feeling….! Hope you all have a great day.

NOT A GAY DAY FOR SOME GAYS…

By David Vance On March 30th, 2014 at 12:25 pm

You have to wonder at the sheer double standards of the Media, and the LEFT wing media in particular.

Here’s the Daily Mirror headline from yesterday, you can see how it celebrates the legalisation of gay marriage.

Today here is the headline news..

“Top Tory MP resigns as Ministerial aide following claims he paid male escort for sex and drugs..”

So, the gay lifestyle is to be celebrated unless..erm..a man who is a conservative and likes gays engages in it? I see.

Oh, and by the way, yes, the Daily Mirror also supports…. the legalisation of illegal drugs.

It’s the double standards that sickens me. Evidently some people with a penchant for gay sex are judged higher than others, from the loathsome hypocrites in The Mirror.

COVER UP

By David Vance On March 30th, 2014 at 10:25 am

Interesting legal determination here;

A Jordan court of Muslim law ruled last week that women who don’t wear the Islamic hijab are “sluts,” much to the chagrin of Jordan’s women’s rights groups.  India Today reports that a lawyer objected to a witness by arguing that there is a fatwa stating that any woman does not cover herself or hear a hijab is a “slut” who should not be allowed to testify in court. The Amman Sharia Court of Appeal agreed to the claim that the woman’s lack of headwear would compromise her testimony.

Ladies – you have been warned what happens to YOUR equality when Islam gets into power.
