Live debate updates here as UK MP’s debate the wisdom of banning The Donald for whatever it was he said about Muslims and immigration. Read it and weep, and reflect on the state of free speech while you’re at it.
Charles from Texas seeks to explain why white Americans should also celebrate today – the birthday of Dr Martin Luther King.
OH DEAR. Cadbury, the giant, low grade confectioner has been losing money and market share. Apparently a change in recipe for its “chocolate” hasn’t been well received across council estates.
It doesn’t affect me. I don’t buy that rubbish. However I do welcome the news because Cadbury is a dhimmi organisation. Check its list of halal products. It’s not just Cadbury either. Nestle looks to be just as craven.
Look, if producers want to pander to Islam like this then it’s their choice. But the consumer is king and in the age of the interweb we can find out who is doing this kind of thing, all the better to spend our money on other things.
I TOLD you it would be the best comedy around, and I’ve never been more right. Just this weekend the Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn has outlined a few defence and foreign policies:
The first is to do a deal with Argentina over the Falkands. I hate to break it to him, but a deal was concluded in 1982. Second, to allow secondary picketing. Yes, the country is simply clamouring for a return to industrial sclerosis. Next, talk to ISIS. No really, the leader of HM Opposition thinks that we can, and should, negotiate with ISIS. And finally a cornerstone defence initiative: keep Trident submarines but without the nuclear warheads:
In order to prevent significant job losses, the Labour leader has suggested Britain could keep Trident submarines without the nuclear warheads [..]
The Labour leader has suggested Britain could keep Trident submarines without the nuclear warheads, in a move that will placate the Unions who fear abandoning the nuclear deterrent could lead to significant job losses.
Trident isn’t the missiles or the warheads. It’s the submarine fleet, which is designed specifically to carry and deploy nuclear missiles. So Corbyn proposes all the cost of a nuclear deterrent, but without a nuclear deterrent, simply to keep the unions happy. There’s no-one in Broadoor so mental as to come up with this. Tell it to the biggest nutcase in there and he’d laugh at you. I’m seriously beginning to wonder if Jeremy Corbyn is a long term Tory sleeper agent.
NOT for the first time, Czech president, Milos Zeman, is right:
The president of the Czech Republic has claimed it is ‘impossible’ for Muslims to integrate into modern Europe.
Speaking on local TV, President Milos Zeman also blamed the New Years Eve sex attacks in Cologne, Germany, on ‘Muslim culture’ […]
‘The experience of Western European countries which have ghettos and excluded localities shows that the integration of the Muslim community is practically impossible,’ Zeman said in a televised interview Sunday.
‘Let them have their culture in their countries and not take it to Europe, otherwise it will end up like Cologne,’ he added, referring to the mass New Year’s Eve assaults on women in Germany and elsewhere.
This week Iran gets 150 Billion Dollars. Now they owe the Chinese 75 Billion which they will start making payments on. They have entered into a deal to purchase 130 Planes from Airbus and will spend other amounts on sundry domestic issues.
However Iran is going to have over 50 Billion Dollars to feed the snake. Iran is the head of the Snake of World Wide Terrorism. All that money is going to be funneled into the complete destabilization of the Middle East more than it already is now.
They have less than a one year window to dominate the region. They can’t take their time to wait and see who wins the American election. They must make the gains against Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt and Israel this Summer, and now they have the money to do it.
This will be a Summer of Blood.
I MUST have been a Progressive all along. This weekend, like every other day of the year, I’ll be doing as they urge you to do in The Guardian. Yes, dear reader, I’m “celebrating diversity”.
(This post was thousands of years in the making.)
IT says everything about the British judiciary that a common sense ruling is a genuine surprise.
Householders can use a “disproportionate” level of force to protect themselves against intruders in their home, the High Court has confirmed in a landmark ruling.
Backing the so-called “householder defence”, judges said that the use of violence when challenging a burglar did not breach European human rights laws […]
The Crown Prosecution Service’s householder defence allows residents to use “disproportionate force” when tackling a burglar, which could include lethal force and the use of a weapon depending on the circumstances.
Only “grossly disproportionate” force and a “calculated action of revenge” is illegal.
Previously, homeowners were limited to “proportionate” force, and the rules, written by politicians, lawyers and judges in safe rooms, ignored reality. That reality is that when a homeowner wakes up to an invader he is almost certain to be panic stricken. It’s then that people will lash out in absolute fear, desperate to see the threat neutralised. They’ll grab whatever is to hand. If that’s the invader’s head, they’ll smash an invader’s head off the wall. There’s nothing proprtionate about it. It’s simply what the innocent sometimes do when someone has chosen to threaten them in their own home.
All along, these rules were grounded in the Left Wing philosophy (see 3:02) that a homeowner, already effectively disarmed, is a “have”, and therefore part of the oppressive class and that he somehow had it coming to him. The invader is likely a “have not” and therefore oppressed and deserving of sympathy.
The ruling was in response to a claim made by the family of a burglar who picked on the wrong home and left it in a coma. It not only re-writes the rules in favour of the decent, it throws out a philosophy which favours the wicked.
None that had the impact of David Bowie, but still they left memories. Dan Haggerty who played Grizzly Addams in an old 70s show. Then there was Alan Rickman. He is most currently known for Snape in the Harry Potter movies, but I saw him first in Die Hard as Hans. A perfectly delightful villain for John McClane.
The first is their first conversation, and the second their first meeting.
