ATW QOTD

By Pete Moore On January 19th, 2019 at 7:59 pm

“Many Remainers aren’t so much pro-EU as they are anti-Eurosceptic. It’s an especially pathological form of virtue-signalling.”

– the essential James Delingpole

He’s right, almost. I’d say that no-one is pro-EU. I’ve never met anyone who is pro-EU. Some suffer it, but many Remainers are triangulating their position. It’s a calculated, cultural statement. Being pro-EU is all about not being for the same things as people who I think I dislike will be for.

Remainers, if they stumble into a moment of honesty, will admit that not a single positive argument was made for the EU during the People’s Vote. Not a single one. The best that they could say was that leaving it is a risk, but they had not a positive statement about the EU itself. That’s because there is nothing positive to say for it.

UP THE ARSE

Just thought I’d get that one in.

And with a quick change of sport, a rugby prediction. The group stage of the Heineken Cup (rugby’s equivalent of the Champions League) is as good as done. I can’t see a winner outside of Saracens, Leinster or Racing 92. Those three are out in front as the best club/provincial sides in Europe.

The strength in depth of Irish rugby at the moment is frightening. It’s not that they’re not weak in any position, it’s that every position has a queue of quality players, and every one of them seems to know exactly what to do at every moment. There’s a clarity to their play at all times, and that’s a huge advantage in a game of fine margins.

So I’m calling it now: Ireland will win the Six Nations, which begins in a fortnight, and the World Cup later this year.

WELL IF “BUZZFEED” SAID IT

By Pete Moore On January 19th, 2019 at 4:59 pm

WAPO: Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s office on Friday denied an explosive report by BuzzFeed News that his investigators had gathered evidence showing President Trump directed his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, to lie to Congress about a prospective business deal in Moscow.

You’d think the drones would learn by now. As soon as the “explosive” report landed Democrats talked impeachment, the establishment media splashed it and the left-liberal masses celebrated like their hair was on fire.

The warning flags were there. Buzzfeed, which has a less than stellar reputation, ran a story which was anonymously sourced and lacked any evidence. This alone is a warning not to take it as read. But Buzzfeed knows its target audience. So many links were clicked and the hit rates raised, and that was probably the point of it all along.

ATW FRIDAY NIGHT JUKEBOX

By Pete Moore On January 18th, 2019 at 7:19 pm

Because Friday night is Music Night

I could do with a weekend without Brexit to be honest. In fact I could do with a couple of months without it. Like the eminent historian Andrew Roberts, I call on the useless Prime Minister to prorogue Parliament for ten weeks to protect the British people from those who would usurp our will. What I can’t do is a weekend without fat blokes beating up each other. Edinburgh vs Montpellier this evening will do nicely.

Did I mention that I love my Southern Rock? It’s the real soul music. So have some of this great tune. Have a good weekend, except Remoaners and, as always, feel to share your fav sounds down below –

THE ART OF THE DEALS

By Pete Moore On January 18th, 2019 at 7:03 pm

BLOOMBERG: “China has offered to go on a six-year buying spree to ramp up imports from the U.S., in a move that would reconfigure the relationship between the world’s two largest economies, according to officials familiar with the negotiations.”

You have to hand it to the Father of the Nation. He gets things done. Contrast him with the worst Prime Minister since Clement Attlee.

China is sitting on a mountain of dollars. They ended up there because of the rotten social and economic policies of previous US administrations. As trade imbalances grew, decadent and careless administrations seemed to care even less. But those dollars are useless in China. President Trump knows that they only serve a purpose by ultimately coming back from China to the US. The trick is getting them to part with the cash. So Americans have to invest in productive activity and make stuff that the Chinese want.

What the US absolutely must not do is take the cash back in the form of Chinese investment in infrastructure. They like game, because they want to own everything.

IT’S MOGGSTER FM

By Pete Moore On January 18th, 2019 at 6:34 pm

What splendid days these are for Great British broadcasting. As I sit here typing, the wizened tones of Jacob Rees Mogg are filling the room, for I’m tuned in to his new show on LBC. From now on, Monday to Thursday at 6pm is the Sir Nigel Farage show. Lord Rees Mogg has the same slot every Friday. Early evening radio simply cannot be bettered.

Goodness knows how they swung it with all the communists infesting LBC. The high priestess of snowflakes, James O’Brien, and Shelagh Fogarty are laughably dishonest. But Matt Frei has just raised the Fake News bar.

Thank the Lord for small mercies then. I being you this news because I know that ATW commentators like to stay informed. Be sure to tune in.

Everything against everyone should be dismissed

FRUIT OF POISONOUS TREE DOCTRINE

The Fruit of the Poisonous Tree doctrine (also known as the Derivative Evidence Doctrine) is a rule in criminal law that makes evidence that was derived from an illegal search, arrest or interrogation inadmissible. In other words, the evidence (the “fruit”) was tainted due to it coming from the illegal search and seizure (the “poisonous tree”). Under this doctrine, not only must illegally obtained evidence be excluded, but also all evidence obtained or derived from exploitation of that evidence. The courts deem such evidence tainted fruit of the poisonous tree. The origin of this doctrine is found in the landmark Supreme Court case, Wong Sun v. United States, 371 U.S. 471 (1963).

Bruce Ohr The then-senior Department of Justice (DOJ) official briefed both senior FBI and DOJ officials in summer 2016 about Christopher Steele’s Russia dossier, explicitly cautioning that the British intelligence operative’s work was opposition research connected to Hillary Clinton’s campaign and might be biased.

Ohr’s briefings, in July and August 2016, included the deputy director of the FBI, a top lawyer for then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and a Justice official who later would become the top deputy to special counsel Robert Mueller.

At the time, Ohr was the associate deputy attorney general. Yet his warnings about political bias were pointedly omitted weeks later from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant that the FBI obtained from a federal court, granting it permission to spy on whether the Trump campaign was colluding with Russia to hijack the 2016 presidential election.

The First FISA Warrant was filed in October of 2016.  Every official that signed the FISA Warrants committed Perjury. Yates, McCabe, Comey, and Rosenstein, all Falsified documents presented to the FISA Court. The Warrants are the Poisonous Tree. Every crime and or criminal behavior uncovered as a result of those Warrants needs to be thrown out or suppressed.

That not only includes everything against Trump, but also against Flynn, Manafort, and Cohen.

No matter if they found bodies buried in their backyards buried with the murder weapon covered in fingerprints. All evidence that can be traced back to the FISA Warrants in any form should be thrown out. Which apply to the entire Special Counsel against Trump.

A NEW Special Counsel needs to be seated to investigate the FBI/DOJ and their falsification of Warrants before the most powerful court in the United States. If determined that the FBI did not investigate the validity of the accusations in the Steel Dossier which both Comey and McCabe have testified under oath that they did not, then they are guilty by their own Testimony.

These a Criminal Felonies.

Once that investigation is done Yates, McCabe, Comey, and Rosenstein along with multiple others would be prosecuted. If found guilty of what they have testified to under oath ALL the charges against everyone must be thrown out. That is how the Law works.

Here is Rosenstein explaining FISA added to the fact that he knew along with Yates, McCabe, and Comey that the Steele Dossier was a Fraud why they are guilty of Perjury without even knowing it.

Our Lady of Perpetual Crisis

By Mahons On January 17th, 2019 at 11:59 am

Wholly May, mother of odd. The British Prime Minister gets beaten like a red headed stepchild on her Brexit plan one day, and bitch slaps the opposition the next when they try a vote of no confidence.
Say what you will about the Tories, they may not agree with May, but they don’t want to hand their country over to the feckless Corbyn.
May’s got the job no one in her party really wants (at the moment). Oh sure some of the politicians with politically suicidal tendencies claim they do, but it is just show – like a drunk in a bar fight held back by friends who keeps shouting “hold me back” while hoping no one lets go.
So May will press on from crisis to crisis, with not enough votes to get done what she wants to get done but enough votes to keep leading the charge of the Light Brigade. A bloody mess.
