Mayexit?

By Mahons On January 16th, 2019 at 1:03 pm

The Prime Minister is in a no win situation. I mean literally. She can not win. Any responsible attempt to soften the irresponsible referendum is doomed to failure. Corbyn’s crowd can only crow at the vote yesterday, and her own party members are engaged in a mutiny that would make the Bounty seem like the Love Boat.
I dont blame May. The cart was put before the horse before she even assumed office. She was chasing moonbeams the entire time. The people who could have devised a prudent plan for exit surrendered the day to a ill conceived referendum without thought of repercussions. It was easier in the short term, and that was their political failure. The failure to devise a workable plan after was a natural consequence and the lesser of their collective failure.
May should resign. Her historical lost dictates it. In politics sometimes events simply overwhelm people, and this is such an occassion.

ALL HEAT, NO LIGHT

The Prime Minister’s rotten EU withdrawal agreement is about to be shot down in the Commons. The media is afroth with excitement. You’d think that something important was about to happen.

Tonight is a formality. Everyone knows that the deal will die. All that remains to be seen is by how much. I’m not making predictions, except to say that it will be by a lot of votes. There was a time when a PM would be expected to resign after a heavy defeat. This PM won’t do that. She doesn’t have the honour or decency.

The real fun and games start tomorrow. A Remain Commons is in open revolt against the British people. It is set on cancelling our votes, our words and our wishes. The law – statute law – still says that we leave the EU on 29th March. No motion or amendment can get around that. So the Commons will have to legislated for something else in order to put the final nail into any idea of democracy. Or get Bercow to pull a new rule from his hat.

What’s to come over the next ten weeks will make the last couple of years look sane.

Miracle on the Hudson

By Mahons On January 15th, 2019 at 2:12 pm

The Hudson River winds 315 miles from the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York south to Mew York City where it flows into the Atlantic Ocean. It is a tidal river with the tides effecting its flow all the way up to Troy, New York. It was as critical to the nation’s development as any river including the mighty Mississippi. It was named after the English explorer Henry Hudson who sailed up it looking for a norhwest passage to China. During the American Revolution a wooden chain was placed across it at West Point to deny the British Ships access up to Albany. Washington Irving’s Rip Van Winkle and Ichabod Crane roamed its shores. The Erie Canal was built into it which allowed trade and prosperity. Pete Seegar sailed up and down, a troubador who rallied environmentalists to keep it clean. The Palisade Cliffs rising above the mighty flow of water.

Ten years ago a pilot named Sullenberger landed a commercial airline on the river saving the lives of all aboard.

That astounding event transpired virtually minutes after takeoff. Birds had flown into the engine, sounding like sneakers in a dryer. Told by air traffic controllers that there were two runways available to land on the pilot, recognizing he couldnt make it to them, and above a densely populated City, calmly advised he would land on the river instead. It was, he later said, a decision based on theory as opposed to practice. First responders then rushed in time to save the passengers and the crew.
No pilot had captured the nation’s imagination so since at least Lindbergh. And he has walked the path of fame and admiration in a dignified and modest way ever since. A truly heroic and wonderful story of Flight 1549 that deserves to be remembered this day.

If I was still an Executive I’d buy it……

On Monday in Detroit, Ford unveiled the most powerful vehicle it’s ever made: the 2020 Shelby GT500.

The high-performance Mustang variant comes with a supercharged 5.2-liter V-8 and more than 700 horsepower. (That’s considerably more brawny, for instance, than the 460-hp Mustang GT and the 526-hp Shelby GT350R.) It can get to 60 mph in just over three seconds and claims the best track times of any Mustang ever built, Ford Motor Co. executives said at the debut. It also has the largest brakes of any domestic sport coupe the company has produced and, in a first for the segment, a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission that allows drivers to shift gears in the blink of an eye.

There are very few greater Joys in life than slamming the pedal to the metal on a V8 let alone a Shelby V8. The sweet joy of screaming tires leaving a cloud of white smoke with the scent of burning rubber…… god bless the return of the muscle car.

I WONDER WHO

We have a Real Problem

By Patrick Van Roy On January 14th, 2019 at 2:14 pm

Dishonesty and corruption are endemic at the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The latest proof comes in a New York Times report that the FBI initiated an investigationin May of 2017 into whether President Donald Trump was serving as a covert Russian agent.  The accusation itself was ludicrous on its face.  But from a legal standpoint, the FBI’s probe constituted an egregious abuse of power.  The Bureau had no probable cause, no evidence, and no reasonable suspicions.  They investigated Trump because they could.  They defied the law, ignored or perverted facts, and debased the integrity of a heretofore-respected law enforcement agency.

Why did these rogue officials commit such an outrageous act of malfeasance? In a word, vengeance.  Already incensed that Trump had defeated their preferred candidate, Hillary Clinton, they grew furious when the president fired Director James Comey on May 9, 2017. In reaction, they sought retribution. What better way to avenge Comey’s firing than to launch a counterintelligence investigation of Trump under the false pretense that he committed treasonous acts for the benefit of the Kremlin and at the direction of President Vladimir Putin. Absent credible proof, information could be manipulated to frame Trump while a compliant media would gobble up the leaks and report the damaging charge. The election results could then be undone when the president was driven from office.

Whether you hate Trump, or hate Hillary it should make no difference in the fear this information should instill in you. The FBI had no probable cause, no evidence, and no reasonable suspicions.  They investigated Trump because they could.  They defied the law, ignored or perverted facts, and debased the integrity of a heretofore-respected law enforcement agency.

There is nothing in the world more dangerous than corrupt Law Enforcement. Add to it the abilities of a FEDERAL Law Enforcement agency and what you have is the KGB.

All the corruption ties back to McCabe, Comey, Rosenstein, Stroke, and Page. They fixed crimes committed by the Clintons and with no Authority started an investigation into her political opponent Trump. A Federal Police Force that is not restrained by the Law is a threat to our society.

The 5 People listed above should be tried for Treason.

Palmerston knew not to give tuppence for all of the rest.

Just background.

First off I want to say I can’t stand Judge Jeanine Piro she’s a clone of my maternal aunt Rita who god rest her soul I loved dearly, but was a typical highly educated south philly whop broad. Fun and crazy as hell but they’ll rip your eyeballs out and play marbles with them.

The Person she’s talking to however is Representative Jim Jordan. The Head of the Freedom Caucus in the House the only group in office I give any real backing to.

If you want the side you’re not hearing in other words what republicans actually feel and will tell you themselves, you’ll listen to what he says. He speaks for more people than you think.

FINLAND TOO

Islamic immigration is a catastrophe for Western girls and women

Oulu police probe four new cases of suspected under-age sex abuse

Police in Oulu said Friday that they have launched a preliminary investigation into four fresh cases of suspected sexual abuse of girls under the age of 15. The department added that four foreign background suspects have been held in connection with the case.

The announcement follows a previous round of investigations last November in which eight immigrant-background men were detained on suspicion of committing five similar offences against underage girls.

It emerges that muslim rape gangs are also targeting very young Finnish girls, some as young as ten who have been repeatedly beaten and raped. A quick google hints at the horrors which have been happening in the town of Oulu. Hints, because the Finnish press and government are as keen as the rest to downplay the horrors with passive language and euphemisms for “muslim rape gangs”.

No, they’re not welcome. Not even refugees. European girls must be protected.
