*NOW* WE HAVE A COUP

By Pete Moore On September 24th, 2019 at 6:04 pm

We cannot overstate the extraordinary nature of the decision taken by the Sovereign Supreme Court this morning.

To recap: the Prime Minister advised the Monarch to prorogue Parliament. Why he did so is irrelevant. Monarchs have prorogued Parliaments, and recalled them, on the advice of their chief advisor for centuries. What happened is entirely consistent with age-old precedent. It was the central fact of the constitution, until today.

The Supreme Court declared that the Prime Minister’s advice was unlawful. The court has no evidence on which to base this conclusion, unless they waterboarded the corgis. What passes between prime ministers and monarchs is strictly confidential.

More than that, the court has held that the prorogation is therefore unlawful, and is therefore null and void. In the absence of any statute limiting the powers of prorogation, it simply invented one. In doing so it usurped Royal prerogative powers. It has put itself above the Crown.

The United Kingdom is therefore no longer a Constitutional Monarchy. In overruling the Monarch the court has, effectively, abolished the Constitutional Monarchy. No discussion, no debate, no consent.

Do not tell me that that the Justices are beyond criticism. They have overturned the central fact of the constitution and sided with a Remainer-Usurper Parliament. They have put themselves at the centre of politics and the constitution. So it is fair to critique and criticise them as politicians are critiqued and criticised.

Anyone who thinks that this absurd decision solves anything is in for a surprise. Everything is now justiciable. Remainers have often said that they fear the Americanisation of British politics. They just brought those fears about. Everything is now justiciable.

A site filled with Hate and Vileness. I spend to much time there. I have only 1300 followers, but you can actually get some Links to some good stories…. Well I’ve been suspended for saying 2 words… “Hang Him in response to this post……

Now Hanging is still an option in the US, and I think this guy deserves it….. but NO….. that’s a hate crime to say someone like the lovely person above should be hanged.

Generalisimo Francisco Franco is Still Dead

By Mahons On September 24th, 2019 at 1:37 pm

A year ago one may have been able to write (pun intended) whether Spain’s 20th Century Dictator would be removed from the Valley of the Fallen “remains to be seen.”
Now it looks like a done deal. It is appropriate that he be removed from the burial site that includes thousands of people whose deaths he was culpable. At last call bartenders of my aquaitance have said “you dont have to go home but you cant stay here.” Franco’s family wants him buried in a Cathedral near his daughter. The Government is too worried about security and seems inclined to bury him elsewhere – with Mrs. Franco. I don’t recall their marital situation but I was suprised they were not together already. Perhaps she was disappointed in him, thinking a Ruler should have 12 inches.
Civil Wars tend to leave a mark. Witness the various stories of statue removal here in the US of Confederate icons. In Spain, the wounds are more recent and less healed. Removing a culprit of so much sorrow from hallowed ground is an important step on the road to recovery.

When It Rains It Pours

By Mahons On September 24th, 2019 at 11:50 am

One would be forgiven if one assumed Boris Johnson just booked a holiday with Thomas Cook, he is having that kind of a week.
His setbacks are of the high and low nature, a predictable if unwelcome scenario.

On the high end his questionable tactic of suspending Parliament has been found by a unanimous Supreme Court to have been illegal, null and void. One does not piss in the Queens soup and ask her to taste it with a smile. A politician acting on impulse instead of reason is not unheard of on either side of the Atlantic, but they dont usually face such a Constitutional smack down.

On the low end apparently the Prime Minister channeled public funds and promotion to one of his girlfriends while Mayor of London. An ethical lapse that might be weathered in a vacuum, but that is hard to escape when the news in full of you screwing the Queen in addition to some bimbo.

Perhaps a comforting factor for the Crime Minister when the shitstorm is at full force is that no one thought he was honest, ethical, competent or respectable anyway. The Casablanca sense of shocked, shocked is mitigating the public reaction to some extent. But a lack of plan B, a failure to even attempt to be a statesman, and a personal need for gratification will likely combine to consign him to an embarrassing footnote in history.

This is just sad

Behold the insanity the Green Wackos have brainwashed into the children…. they’ve created a generation that believe the world is in it’s death throws and will end in their lifetime….

Weep for these children. They are unprepared for Life and they have filled them with the despair of doom. This is child abuse. A handicapped child exploited.

They aren’t interested in ending the violence.

By Patrick Van Roy On September 23rd, 2019 at 6:36 pm

The Congress is doing the Gun Control Dance….. They want to save the children, protect the people, end the violence…… Sorry they are really only interested in disarming the Law Abiding…. they are the people they fear being armed not the animals that prowl the streets preying on the public and each other.

As they do their Kabuki dance this time they added a new step to their dance “Red Flag” where they by opinion of those around you can seize your Firearms and cancel your 2nd Amendment right. I believe done properly these Laws could save lives, except of course the Democrat Party doesn’t want to do it right…..

Gang Members, The Crips, Bloods, MS-13, Pagans, Hells Angels and hundreds of other self declared Outlaw Gangs that operate inside the United States selling, drugs, firearms, woman/boys/children for sex etc etc These Animals control and perpetuate the majority of our nations violent crime, you’d think they would immediately be put on the “Red Flag” ban list. We have a Federal Database of these animals created by every police department in the country….. Well according to Democrats nope you can’t put those people on the redflag list.

House Democrats this week advanced a new measure to encourage states to pass “red flag” laws, known as extreme risk protection orders, that authorize removing guns and ammunition from dangerous individuals.

Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee amended the measure during a Wednesday mark-up to authorize the federal government to issue extreme risk protection orders in some instances, but they rejected an amendment that would have red-flagged anyone who law enforcement lists as a gang member.

“The majority of violent crime, including gun violence, in the United States is linked to gangs,” Rep. Ken Buck, a Colorado Republican who sponsored the amendment, said Wednesday. “My amendment is quite simple. It would allow the issuance of a red flag order against anyone whose name appears in a gang database if there was probable cause to include that individual in the database.”

Buck pointed out his amendment requires law enforcement to limit red-flagging to only those with probable cause to be included on the list, which is a stricter criteria.

Democrats kept objecting, arguing someone could be misidentified as gang members simply for writing “13” on a piece of paper and having it wrongly identified as an MS-13 gang sign.

“Maybe you are just doodling because it is the 13th of June,” Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler of New York said.

Buck said police have to meet a much higher threshold to list someone as a gang member.  The amendment ultimately failed 11-21, but not before the top Republican on the panel, Rep. Doug Collins of Georgia, called out Democrats for their hypocrisy.

This is why we can NEVER allow these Clowns to disarm us. If they aren’t interested in keeping people with known criminal association from being armed they have no cause to even mention disarming anyone else……

THOMAS COOK’S LEGACY

By Pete Moore On September 23rd, 2019 at 6:35 pm

So Thomas Cook has gone bust. Until last night it was the world’s oldest travel operator, having been started in 1841. For most of us here it’s been a High Street fixture. But that was its undoing. It maintained a strong High Street presence into an age where you can book a holiday on your phone. Who comes home with glossy holiday brochures now?

Britain’s biggest ever peacetime repatriation has got under way in an effort to bring home 150,000 holidaymakers who were stranded after the collapse of Thomas Cook.

The move comes after travel giant Thomas Cook ceased trading in the early hours of Monday after failing to secure a last-ditch rescue deal.

Wow, a big op. 150,000 shifted by air over the next couple of weeks. I’m impressed. So the next time someone says that we can’t ship out undesirables in large numbers, toot de sweet, we’ll know that’s lie, won’t we?

BARNSLEY VS PUTNEY

By Pete Moore On September 23rd, 2019 at 6:21 pm

The colonies have no idea how lucky they are. Here in Mother England we’re going down with hernias, laughing at the Labour Party. It’s just voted a new Brexit policy. I think, now, it will negotiate a withdrawal treaty with the EU, put that in a referendum to the country versus a remain option, but it won’t decide until after the General Election which option it will back. Good luck selling that on the doorsteps, Comrades.

Labour is a laughing stock because it is two parties occupying the same name. One is predominantly northern, working class, socially conservative, patriotic, anti-EU, leery of immigration and desperate to be heard. The other is dominated by London, middle class, genuinely revolutionary, pro-EU, anti-borders, anti-British, broadly anti-semitic and contemptuous of democracy.

The working classes are never revolutionary. They love their families and countries too much. The truly dangerous ones are always the “educated” middles classes. Labour’s no different. Its leaders are privately and Oxbridge educated, open admires of Stalin and Mao and truly dangerous people. Dangerous in a “watch out kulaks and Tory women” way.  They even still call each other “Comrade”.

The two parties are irreconcilable. Therefore they will split. The old northern Labour has become increasingly disenchanted. MPs have walked away. Even ex-miners have been saying they’ll vote Tory. Corbyn’s hanging around, and the trickle will speed up. Labour will split, and not before time.

POSH REMAINERS HAVE BEEN WARNED

By Pete Moore On September 22nd, 2019 at 9:31 pm

How dare people think they can do better than the state?

Where the money is to maleducate the 600,000 children in private education, Labour hasn’t said. Neither do they care, these evil Marxists. Most of the top lot in Labour went to private schools. Some of them went to the very best. And their children also. But woe betide anyone who strives to give the same to their own children.
