Quick nobody’s paying attention, dump some info

By The Troll On November 4th, 2014 at 10:40 pm

As Phantom and Mahons point out below,  Both Sharyl Attkisson and I are liars. The Obama Administration has done nothing over the past 6 years. Those who accuse them of anything other than God hood, or at least the greatest President ever to serve with the Nobelist Administration one has ever appointed I give you the following in regards to the main story that got Attkisson in the cross hairs of Mahons and Phantoms Idols.

Now I know this story must be a Lie also because the House over sight committee are nothing but Liars attacking a poor black man.  Following the Law could never have anything to do with it, they’re just racist liars. It must be true the New Yorkers say so.

‘Election Eve Dump:’ Eric Holder Releases Fast and Furious Documents That Got Him Cited for Contempt

Justice Department officials provided House investigators with thousands of documents related to Operation Fast and Furious that President Obama had previously claimed were exempt from congressional review.

In an “election eve dump,” as House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman Darrell Issa (R., Calif.) put it, DOJ handed over 64,280 pages of documents, a release that is still only a partial fulfillment of the committee’s request.

“This production is nonetheless a victory for the legislative branch, a victory for transparency, and a victory for efforts to check Executive Branch power,” Issa said of the release.

DOJ handed over the documents pursuant to a court order. “When Eric Holder wants to know why he was the first Attorney General held in criminal contempt of Congress, he can read the judge’s order that compelled the production of 64,280 pages that he and President Obama illegitimately and illegally withheld from Congress,” Issa said.  “Since these pages still do not represent the entire universe of the documents the House of Representatives is seeking related to the Justice Department’s cover-up of the botched gun-walking scandal that contributed to the death of a Border Patrol agent, our court case will continue.” 

 

LE PEN IS MIGHTIER THAN THE SWORD….

By David Vance On November 4th, 2014 at 10:12 pm

There is plenty to dislike about the French National Front but it’s hard to take issue with this…

David Cameron’s battle with Brussels proves it is impossible to control immigration from the EU, France’s far right leader Marine Le Pen has claimed. The National Front MEP, who is standing for President in 2017, held up Mr Cameron as an ‘example’ of how European freedom of movement rules were sacrosanct in Brussels. Ms Le Pen wrote on Twitter: ‘We are not free to decide our immigration policy – as the example of Mr Cameron recently proved.’

The fact is that Le Pen is 100% right.  One cannot be in the EU and control immigration. Cameron postures that he can, but he can’t and it will ultimately lead to his demise.

WHY DENYING THE PUBLIC SERVICE IS THE CRY OF PUBLIC SERVANTS!

By David Vance On November 4th, 2014 at 10:06 pm

The primary function of Public Sector trade unions like NIPSA is to protect the selfish interest of the public sector.  This explains the following;

Northern Ireland is facing a new year of strike misery with public sector workers set to show their fury over cuts. Angry union members protested outside Belfast City Hall last night as the full implications of Finance Minister Simon Hamilton’s draft budget were revealed. It is understood that members of Northern Ireland’s biggest union Nipsa have contacted other trade unions about a combined major strike early next year. This is expected to affect all of our public services, from hospitals to councils, to Stormont departments and could see tens of thousands of striking workers grinding Northern Ireland to a halt. Bumper Graham from Nipsa said the current draft budget proposals will see the cutting of 6,000 public service jobs.

During the recession years during the financial crunch, Northern Ireland haemorrhaged THOUSANDS of private sector jobs. That was all about business adjusting to new realities. This has not happened in the bloated public sector that Bumper Graham and his ilk seek to protect from reality.  The Unions are selfish, stupid and arrogant. They are a threat to a prosperous economic future. They play up to the only strength they have – their public sector membership. And they will deny the public the very services we PAY for in pursuance of their own agenda. Let’s do what they say and not cut 6000 public service jobs. Make it 16,000 and bring it into proportional parity with the other parts of the UK.

HOPE AND CHANGE?

By David Vance On November 4th, 2014 at 9:55 pm

Unknown

It is the mid-term elections in the US and hope and change beckons as Mr Hope and Change’s Party faces being in a minority in BOTH houses in Congress.

At last the campaigning is over, and $4bn (£2.5bn) later – more than 10 times the money committed by the United States to fight Ebola – the candidates fighting for 33 of the 100 seats in the US Senate and all 435 seats in the House of Representatives will await their fate as the results begin to roll in on Tuesday. The big enchilada is control of the Senate. About 10 of the Senate contests are too close to call, but the Republicans should pick up the  six seats they need to become the majority, while consolidating their existing majority in the House of Representatives

It seems that many Democrat candidates would have preferred Ebola to visit them in their individual races than Obama. He appears to be toxic in 2014. The Left wing press will undoubtedly write off GOP success as predictable and then start to chime for the Democrats to hold the White House in 2016, as Clinton positions herself as someone who knew nothing of Obama!! I await the results with great interest. What happens in the US is still a matter of geo-political import and I look forward to studying the runes in the next day or two!

GREGORY’S GURN!

By David Vance On November 4th, 2014 at 9:44 pm

Politics needs less po-faced sanctimonious hypocrites and nowhere is this more evident than at Stormont. Anything for a laugh gets my vote! Further to Seimi’s contribution, this is my take on the great “Curry my Yogurt’ controversy!

For starters, I have no problem whatsoever with the speaking of the Irish language. I appreciate there are many people here who love the language…..for the sake of the beauty of the language. And then there is Sinn Fein. It uses (or abuses) the Irish language as Kulturekampfe! THAT is why all Sinn Fein MLAs insist on speaking FIRST in Irish and then English.

DUP MLA Gregory Campbell made a joke in Stormont – provoked by the arrogance of Sinn Fein.

A row developed on Monday, after he began his address to the assemblywith: “Curry my yoghurt can coca coalyer”. The Irish sentence “go raibh maith agat, Ceann Comhairle” translates as “thank you, Speaker” and is used by nationalist MLAs in the chamber. The Speaker said his conduct fell “well short of standards expected from MLAs”.

Childish? Yes. But he does have a point. Stormont is a BRITISH institution and ENGLISH is our first language, no matter what delusions the Shinners hold. They are language fascists first and foremost.  They should be made to speak as a matter of procedural course  in English first and then, if they want, Irish.

Of course, Campbell has only himself to blame. His Party KEEPS Sinn Fein in government.

There is a further irony. He has been banned for one day for this behaviour. By contrast, Jim Allister was banned for a MONTH for a much less offensive comment.

Ultimately this is shadow boxing.

CURRY MY YOGURT

By David Vance On November 4th, 2014 at 9:27 pm

ATW contributor and all round good egg Seimi sent this to me this morning but I am only able to post it now!

“Good Evening and welcome to this special edition of Political Match of the Day, which comes to you this week from Stormont. We have a bit of a Derby match for you today, featuring two old rivals, Nationalists versus Unionists. The political football today – that old favourite, the Irish language. We go straight to the pitchside, where the whistle has just blown.

“Good morning, Gary, and welcome. As you say, the whistle has just gone, and the debate on the Irish language has just started. This is a debate on a proposed strategy for the Irish language. I should point out that this is a joint proposed strategy for the Irish language and Ulster Scots, brought forward by the Sinn Féin Minister for Culture, Arts and Heritage, Caral Ní Chuilín. This bilingual – some might even say trilingual, given that English is also in use – approach has caused surprising divisions amongst the supporters of both sides. Some see it as a fair and balanced approach, which respects both sides and paves the way for better tolerance and understanding. Others see it as not enough, considering that the Irish Language Act, as promised in the St. Andrew’s Agreement, is the only formation they should be going with. And yet others believe that – oh wait! Just on the subject of what this third group want, here comes one of its stalwarts, Gregory Campbell. Gregory, once Culture minister himself, will surely support this proposal, which will see positive benefits for both the Irish speaking community and the smaller, if equally proud, Ulster Scots community… He steps up to the podium and prepares to take his shot…

Oh my word! Rather than take the shot that would have gained his side a fair amount of praise across the field, he has instead decided to play the Childish Card, mangling the phrase, “Go raibh maith agat, a Cheann Comhairle,” or “Thank you, Mister Speaker,” to “Curry my yoghurt, can coca coalyer!” This move is met with laughter from his own team, and complete silence from the opposing side. Here comes Ní Chuilín…

And it appears that Campbell has scored an own goal here, as the Minister parries his shot with a, “If it’s anything to go by what you just did, we don’t need a strategy for pure ignorance,” followed by a deft refusal to answer his question, saying that Mr Campbell’s behaviour is not “befitting a member of the assembly”, and finished off with an official complaint to the Northern Ireland Assembly’s speaker’s office. What drama!

Mr. Campbell’s subsequent refusal to apologise for his comments ensures that this game is by no means over. These two sides have been at it for years. Campbell used a very similar phrase back in 2007; Sammy Wilson, player/streaker for the DUP said, ““Irish is a leprechaun language,” back in 1987, and David McNarry, then a member of team Ulster Unionist, now playing for the Independents, famously said, “I must say that I am heartily sickened to hear a Minister of this institution speaking in Irish.” The list goes on and on, from the Statutes of Kilkenny in 1366 right up to the present day.

All this means that the political football that is the Irish language will continue to be kicked around at Stormont for a long time to come. They think it’s all over…no they don’t.”

“DUP MP Gregory Campbell has been barred from addressing the Northern Ireland Assembly for a day for failing to apologise for an Irish language parody.

UPDATE;

The Speaker said his conduct fell “well short of standards expected from MLAs”. However, as Mr Campbell is currently at Westminster, the ruling has limited impact.” Which is much the same as being banned from a league match, but able to play in a cup match.

A ROTTEN APPLE!

Hi all! Sorry about my lack of presence but I foolishly upgraded my Macbook to Yosemite and it melted down! So, off to computer hospital, problem sorted and I am back-k-k-k-k-k-k-k!

Remember this was the Obama Administration not Bush

By The Troll On November 4th, 2014 at 11:05 am

Everybody worried about Bush’s people doing what the Obama Administration has done repeatedly.

YouTube Preview Image

The break in into her computer happened at the same time that Holder was targeting Fox reporters with wiretaps. They also planted classified material on her computer that forensic experts found while trying to trace who hacked her computer.

Funny how the Press screamed that the Patriot act would be abused by the Bush administration, yet no examples of it actually happening ever were found. Yet they have been Silent over what happened to Atkinson and James Rosen.

If they Win it will be a disaster

By The Troll On November 4th, 2014 at 4:26 am

As I have stated previously, I hope the Republicans don’t win the Senate.

If they win the Senate Mitch McConnell will be the Leader of the Senate, and John (weeping Willy) Boehner  will be the Leader of the House. Two idiots with no backbone, or Balls.

If the Republicans take control of both Houses today it will be a disaster. The win will have nothing to do with any agenda the Republicans put forth because they put none out to be voted on. It will be just what it is a rejection of Onama and the Democrat Agenda.

It will also give the Press two years to blame the disaster that Obama and the Democrats created on the Republicans. Nothing of any substance will be passed into Law. Anything sent to Obama will be vetoed.  The disaster will continue, but the blame will be placed by the press on the Republicans rather than where the blame lies on the Democrats.

I hope they fall short. The continuing suffering needs to be blamed on it’s architects the Left not the right. Since Obama has taken office 10’s of Millions have had to go on foodstamps (soup lines), 10’s of Millions have been reduced to poverty.  1 in 5 children are now in poverty, along with 1 in 6 adults.  The Labor participation rate is the lowest it’s been since 1978, and Obama has created more Federal Debt in 6yrs than ALL previous Presidents combined.

The only state that is guaranteed to provide proof of the continuing disaster of Democrat rule after todays elections is my own.  Wolf will beat Corbett for the Governors job in Pennsylvania. He will raise taxes and do everything he can to stop Fracking. It matters not that 90% of all new job growth in Pa over the past 7yrs have been jobs in Fracking. He will do everything he can to stop it.

This victory if it happens will be useless.

One World Trade Center Opens Today

By Phantom On November 3rd, 2014 at 1:59 pm

One-World-Trade-Center

A few blocks away from me, the first tenants are moving into One World Trade Center this morning.

I’m happy that this is happening. I wish that I was moving in too.

The brilliant Chris Rock gave a routine on Saturday Night Live Saturday in which he said he’d never set foot in that building. I understand this view very well, and cannot find fault in it. But I see it differently.

A bunch of us who worked in the old WTC had discussions in 2002 on the subject. A few of us, Joe, Hon, and myself, said that we’d be happy to work there, or, if apartments were affordable, to actually live in the building. Maybe we were too stupid to see the full extent of the continuing danger, maybe we don’t want to run.

One World Trade Center is 60 percent rented. We will soon see many more people in lower Manhattan once more. And a lot of the new tenants will be in the media business – Conde Nast has taken five floors – which will make for a more diverse, interesting group of people working here.

Later this week, the Fulton Transit Center project, which links together several subway lines better than before in a lovely building, will open on Broadway and Fulton.

Little by little, my lower Manhattan is being restored, and will soon be much better than it was before. The signs are everywhere. More on them later.
