Oh dear. This isn’t what we were told would happen if we had the temerity to vote to Brexit.
Strong consumer spending helped the UK’s economy to grow faster than expected at the end of last year. The economy grew by 0.6% in the October-to-December period, the same rate as in the previous two quarters, according to an initial estimate from the Office for National Statistics. The figure indicates that the feared economic slowdown following the Brexit vote has not materialised.
The “feared economic slowdown” referred to above was Project Fear, a tissue of lies designed to scare us into staying in the EU. It almost worked but thank god enough of us voted to LEAVE.
One of the great joys of this stage of the Trump Presidency has been witnessing the scale of Trump Derangement Syndrome amongst the liberal left. He has outraged the mainstream media by telling us before he was elected what he would do and then..when he was elected ….doing it! This is almost unprecedented. The normal routine is that a politician makes promises before election secure in the knowledge that he can abandon them once in power. Trump is not like this. As time goes on you will see that he does what he says. He is not a politician. He is a doer.
Donald Trump has said a lot of bats in the belfry crazy man things but one of the craziest is his oft-stated desire to steal Iraq’s oil .
He admits that the Iraq war was a grave mistake. It harmed US interests permanently in the region by deposing the best Sunni check to Iranian Shia power. Plus, it killed many Iraqis, if anyone here cares.
So now to punish Iraq for a war that the US chose to start, we will steal the oil resources of a major Arab nation.
What could go wrong?
It’s one thing for a candidate to say such idiotic things, it is another thing for the president of the United States to say them. Memo to Trump: if you want to turn the entire Arab world against the US, keep shooting off your mouth.
Ahh the Commie idiot Pope. As a Catholic I find this man very disturbing.
Look at his rant below, he bitches about building a Wall, and about demigod rulers. Yet he lives in his own little Country that’s ENTIRE BORDER is a GIANT WALL. Add to that when you meet him you have to KNEEL and KISS HIS RING.
Vatican City, officially Vatican City State or the State of Vatican City, is a walled enclave within the city of Rome. With an area of approximately 44 hectares, and a population of 842, it is the smallest sovereign state in the world by both area and population. It is an ecclesiastical or sacerdotal-monarchical state ruled by the Bishop of Rome – the Pope. The highest state functionaries are all Catholic clergy of various national origins
Madrid (AFP) – Pope Francis warned against populism, saying it could lead to the election of “saviours” like Hitler.
In an hour-long interview with Spanish newspaper El Pais conducted as Donald Trump was being sworn in as US president, the pontiff also condemned the idea of using walls and barbed wire to keep out foreigners.
“Of course crises provoke fears and worries,” he said but added that for him “the example of populism in the European sense of the word is Germany in 1933.
“Germany… was looking for a leader, someone who would give her back her identity and there was a little man named Adolf Hitler who said ‘I can do it’.”
“Hitler did not steal power,” the pope said. “He was elected by his people and then he destroyed his people.”
The Germans at that time also wanted to protect themselves with “walls and barbed wire so that others cannot take away their identity,” he said.
“The case of Germany is classic,” he said, adding that Hitler gave them a “deformed identity and we know what it produced.”
Pope Francis however underscored that it was too early to pass judgement on Trump.
“Let’s see. Let’s see what he does and then we will evaluate,” he said.
So IRA commander Martin McGuinness has, as predicted, stood down. This has prompted the usual predictable eulogising by the mainstream media. I would prefer to share the thoughts of someone who used to write here on ATW, Aileen Quinton, Here is her article and I quote the conclusion…
“Martin McGuinness repenting would involve ceasing to eulogise IRA terror and terrorists, admitting that it was all morally wrong and passing on all information about any serious crime that he was involved in or knows about.
The continuing failure so to do shows that he has not changed where it matters and where it should have mattered to Paisley et al.
How do a few tactical political changes render that continuing omission OK?
How is it not a crime in itself?
McGuinness hasn’t made much of a “journey” or decommissioned his mindset in terms of justifying the slaughter his IRA was involved in.
Patsy Gillespie made a journey. One of the most horrendous journeys made in Northern Ireland.
Whenever McGuinness goes to his grave, in contrast to his innocent victims, the major tragedy about him will be how he lived, not that he died.”
The liberal media is stunned that when Donald Trump promised he would “build a wall” across the southern border with Mexico he now actually delivers on the promise. How DARE he fulfil his promise! I suppose years of giving Obama a pass on just about everything he has every promised has allowed the default media mindset to be one of assuming a politician must lie. Trump didn’t. The Wall will be built. When it is finished I suggest he then build one along the Northern border with Canada!
Hi all! Well then, reports of my blogging demise have been somewhat exaggerated! Sometimes things just go wrong and my laptop has been one of them. The hardboard has been failing for weeks and it finally gave up the ghost. I blame the Russians. Or Donald Trump. It’s been off getting repaired and I couldn’t log in from a different computer because I couldn’t remember my log in! I have been able to tweet from my phone but blogging requires full pc access if it is to be done properly. Anyway, so much has happened since I vanished, with the BEST day being the Inauguration followed by the Wimmins Protest against Reality marches. In the meantime the Supreme Court in the UK is seeking to ensure we don’t Brexit as easily or as quickly as we the people wanted! Such fun and games.
Donald Trump’s early moves on infrastructure and deregulation have reignited investor confidence in the US economy, propelling stocks into record territory and sending the Dow Jones Industrial Average above 20,000 for the first time.
That’s the FT. Even they rightly recognise the investor confidence that’s flooding back into the American economy with the election of President Trump. It has “ignited” investor confidence, they say. It started on the morning of 9th November, and the Dow has climbed higher ever since. It’s now busting through levels never seen before.
