THE SENSIBLE SLOVAKS

By Pete Moore On November 30th, 2016 at 9:24 pm

SLOVAKIA for Slovaks. It’s a beautiful thing.

Slovakia passed legislation on Wednesday to effectively block Islam from gaining official status as a religion in the near future in the latest sign of growing anti-Muslim sentiment across the European Union.

The former communist state has fiercely resisted EU efforts to cope with a big influx of mainly Muslim migrants into Europe since 2015, in part by opposing quotas to share out asylum seekers among EU members. Prime Minister Robert Fico’s government has said Islam has no place in Slovakia.

From one patriot to others, well done to all involved. Keep your beautiful homeland and traditions as you see fit. Don’t allow any outsiders to push you around. Isn’t that right, liberationistas?

(Memo to PM Fico: don’t expect good Western press about you or your country any time soon.)

“FAKE NEWS”

By Pete Moore On November 30th, 2016 at 8:22 pm

TROLLING level: another dimension

The Guardian is out with another oh-so-Guardian comment piece. How chuffed they must have felt, bagging this expose of the “alt-right” from someone who was sucked in by its devious propaganda –

The only problem is that “Godfrey Elfwick” is the author, but it’s a parody SJW twitter account. Oh my aching sides. It’s such a bizarre world over there, they cannot even tell when they’re being sent up! And these chumps have the gall to lecture the rest of us about “fake news”.

Townsman of a Stiller Town

The poem To An Athlete Dying Young has that wonderful imagery of the athlete first being carried on the shoulders of the supporters through the streets of the town in a victory parade after a race.  Later, his coffin carried on the same shoulders in the same streets by the silent mourners.

The plane crash that killed almost an entire football team from Brazil has left that nation in numbed grief.  Their fairytale rise and tragic fall from the sky resonates with many across the globe.

Most of us, certainly most here, are past our athletic prime.  But we recall the joy of running, jumping, kicking, throwing, blocking, sliding and catching.  Most have rooted for a favorite team or player.  We often wear their uniforms, hats and scarves.  We hang their banners and wave their pennants.  We sing their songs.

May time and community bring some healing to their loved ones.

ERDOGAN: TURKEY WILL END ASSAD’S RULE

By Pete Moore On November 29th, 2016 at 7:51 pm

*POPCORN*

The Sultan is in a boastful mood. So says our NATO ally:

Turkey entered Syria to end al-Assad’s rule: President Erdoğan

The Turkish military launched its operations in Syria to end the rule of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said Nov. 29 […]

“Why did we enter? We do not have an eye on Syrian soil. The issue is to provide lands to their real owners. That is to say we are there for the establishment of justice. We entered there to end the rule of the tyrant al-Assad who terrorizes with state terror. [We didn’t enter] for any other reason,” the president said.

Good luck with that sunshine. Russia entered Syria to keep Assad exactly where he is. Any attempt by Ankara oust Assad will bring their forces into direct conflict with the Russian military. NATO’s rules may oblige all members to pitch in if one is attacked, but rules are made to be broken in my book if Erdogan overreaches.

THE CATASTROPHE OF WINTER

By Pete Moore On November 29th, 2016 at 7:22 pm

FOR Heaven’s sake. Reports The Standard:

Health warnings issued as temperatures set to plummet to -6C in south-east

A health warning has been issued as temperatures were forecast to plummet to as low as -6C in parts of the south-east […]

Dr Angie Bone, from the extreme events team at Public Health England, said: “Cold does kill, even in places where the temperatures are not at their lowest.

The “extreme events team”. A bit of frost in the morning, a nip in the air at the beginning of winter, is now an “extreme” event. This is the catastrophisation of the mundane and routine, of the arrival of winter. They do go to desperate lengths to justify their salaries.

Still, with high pressure, clear skies and no wind, it’s a comforting thought that we have coal and nuclear to keep us warm. I’d hate to be relying on those eco prayer wheels this week …

Guns, Guns, Guns, and the Republic

45acpAn interesting trend. Since the Election of Donald Trump the sales of Firearms have Dropped. Except for one group, minority sales are up. The Legal Purchase of Firearms by African American and Hispanics has Quadrupled.

Praise the 2nd Amendment. The more minorities that Legally own Firearms the safer those communities are. Welcome to the group of society who understand that we ourselves are responsible for our own safety.

Take a Course in Firearm Safety and Self Defense and get your permit to carry. Good luck and God Bless.

Now for the Republic….

Donald Trump won the Presidency he did so because he won 2,600 Counties in the United States to Hillary Clinton’s 500 Counties in the United States.

That’s why we have an Electoral College. The U.S. was NOT set up as a Democracy. A Democracy is Mob Rule. Our Founders never wanted outlying cities filled with lunatics being able to decide what an entire nation is going to do. Especially in picking the President.

We are a Representative Republic. That Representation was designed to go to Land and Region NOT population.  Look at the election map the loons have amassed themselves in just a few counties.

The System works.

So enjoy the Next Four Years, there is nothing more amusing than watching the Democrats as a minority. Trump is illegitimate, Bush was illegitimate, it’s a never ending clown show.

This isn’t even round one wait till after he takes the oath, that’s when the circus will go to a full 3 Rings.

We are not going to be bored.

 

IT’S ENRICHMENT MONDAY AT OHIO STATE

By Pete Moore On November 28th, 2016 at 7:40 pm

WHEN I heard that someone had deliberately drove a car into pedestrians at Ohio State University today, before getting out and attacking people with a large knife, I had the same thought as everyone else: “A Mormon?”

It turns out we were wrong. Hang onto your hats, but it seems that the perp is a Somali. Say it ain’t so!

An 18-year-old Somali man was behind an attack involving a car and butcher knife on the campus of Ohio State University Monday that left nine injured, law enforcement sources told Fox News.

After the suspect plowed his vehicle into the crowd, officials said he got out of the vehicle and began attacking people with a butcher knife before he was shot and killed by a campus police officer.

Crooked Hillary thinks American society needs 650,000 more enrichers like this. Turns out that millions of racist ‘Muricans might just have done the right thing three weeks ago.

SOCIALISTS WILL ALWAYS JUST MAKE IT UP

By Pete Moore On November 28th, 2016 at 7:04 pm

CUBAN experts have been in full cry since Castro went to the great gulag in the sky, and we all love an expert. One of their pitches is for the famed Cuban health and education systems. Yeah, and Benito got the trains to run on time. In truth Cuban hospitals are slums where, thanks to socialism, you’ll hardly find a bottle of aspirin. As for education, which a BBC pundit lauded this morning as “at least as good as anything in America”, where are the great Cuban advances in science and the humanities? Exactly.

But what intrigues me about Castro fans is their retort, when you point out how poor Cuba is, that “the US has embargoed Cuba for decades”. Well hang on, socialists also deny the importance of international trade in creating wealth, and insist that we’ll be richer if we make everything at home.

So what is it, socialists? Since Cuba had the opportunity and motive to make everything at home, why is it dirt poor? If your theories are correct the embargo ought to have spurred Cuba to wealth. These Leftists aren’t just making it up again, are they?

POLITICS POLLUTES EVERYTHING

By Pete Moore On November 27th, 2016 at 4:52 pm

THIS is autumn international time, when the Southern Hemisphere’s national rugby teams come to play the European national sides. So yesterday, after seeing England beat Argentina at Twickenham, I watched Wales beat Seff Efrica by 27 points to 13 in Cardiff.

That’s the Springbok’s eighth loss this year, a record. It includes a record defeat by New Zealand a few months ago, a thumping defeat by England a fortnight ago and a humiliating loss to Italy last week. The head coach, Allister Coetzee, is widely expected to get the sack when they go home. But sacking a man who was appointed just this year is pointless, and I don’t think that South Africa’s dire year is his fault.

The fault lies with … government. The Springboks, and other SA national teams in other sports, have been ordered by the SA government to pick teams based on quotas. By the time of the 2019 Rugby World Cup, 50 per cent of the Springboks squad must be black. There’s no reason for a quota, there’s no reason why half of the squad must be a particular race, but politics is immune to reason.

This year has seen the first moves to realising the quota. Test quality players have been dropped to make way for mediocre players, who are selected only because they’re black. It’s resulted in a flood of South Africans coming to play rugby in Europe. It disqualifies them from national consideration, because SA picks only players playing in SA. But they won’t be picked anyway now, and they can earn more in Europe. So the domestic game has been hugely weakened, provincial teams are getting thumped by Aussie and Kiwi competitors and crowds are dwindling.

Well done, Pretoria.

South Africa is one of the great rugby powerhouses. It’s produced some of the great teams and great players. They’re so bad now they’re irrelevant. I’d have thought that I’d enjoy seeing the Boks getting hammered. Thanks to government, they’re now second rate, going backwards at speed and getting hammered every week. I’m not enjoying it though. It’s just a sad sight. An entire culture has been trashed and a tradition destroyed, by spiteful politicians and bureaucrats.
