As a speedy follow-on to Pat’s post about Google, a further Fox video which goes a little deeper.

 

 

Google will decide what you can read

Yesterday Google at the bequest of NBC and a FOREIGN ACTIVIST GROUP from England tried to shut down 2 sites it disagrees with The Federalist and Zero Hedge. They used their complete control of the Internet Ad Revenue to try and put 2 of NBCs competitors out of Business.

 

Was it just ‘cos she was dead and Black?

By Mike Cunningham On June 17th, 2020 at 11:42 am

The fifth item on the BBC 8.00 a.m. news was the story of a Black nurse who died of CoronaVirus. She had worked during her third trimester of pregnancy at the Luton and Dunstable Hospital in Bedfordshire. Her baby was delivered by emergency C-section shortly before her death, as she had been diagnosed with coronavirus in early April and died a week later. 

Her husband, Ernest, argues she shouldn’t have been working at the hospital at the start of the pandemic as she was heavily pregnant.

The Bedfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust said: “We were extremely saddened to lose Mary. She worked here for five years and was a highly valued and loved member of our team, a fantastic nurse and a great example of what we stand for in this Trust. We have carried out a full internal review into the circumstances surrounding her death and we are confident that she received the best possible care and support from the Trust.

We have sent our deepest condolences to Mr Boateng.

Now I have just a few comments, not so much about the story per se,  but about its relevance as the fifth item on the British National News headline broadcast, at prime time on a weekday morning.

  • Will we now be given the sad stories of all 41,969 people who died of the virus; because that will take 115 years, if every story is taken one day at a time,(excluding leap years)?
  • As the above idea is taken as being just a little bit ‘over the top; will the BBC undertake to process, review and broadcast say of just One Percent of those 41,969 deaths, and will they  guarantee that a percentage of that one per cent be made according to the relevant statistical survey of white and minority ethnic people in the forty-one or -two days it will take to broadcast all these stories?
  • Will the BBC examine every story which they produce and broadcast, including the measures taken to verify, for  example, the unspoken reference to the fact that somehow the nurse was working at the hospital against her wishes, or the wishes of her husband?
  • Will the sad death of this lady be somehow pushed in to the discussion about how black and minority ethnic people in this United Kingdom are somehow more vulnerable to the virus than white people; and so it is just another statistic proving that BlackLivesDon’tMatter to this uncaring Tory government?
  • What are we to infer from the statement made in the  BBC story that He has spoken exclusively to the BBC’s Sima Kotecha.’. Does this mean that he hasn’t also spoken to, say, the Daily Mail, or the Sun? Are we to infer that he has not sold his story to a commercial newspaper, and thus that his story is, perhaps, more relevant than if he had sold his story?

Just gently asking!

The Politics of Hate

By Patrick Van Roy On June 17th, 2020 at 1:49 am

Currently in his 14th term as a congressman, that’s 24yrs Congressman James Clyburn is a poster child for Term Limits and a definite example of the Politics of Hate. President Trump signed a bill funding Black Colleges FOREVER. Jared Kushner pushed it through and got it finished. However to the esteemed Congressman Clyburn they did NOTHING he and another term limit poster child had been working on it forever…… which is the point this idiot just can’t see……

BLACK MAN ASSAULTS 92 YEAR OLD WHITE WOMAN

By Pete Moore On June 16th, 2020 at 6:53 pm

The kind of shocking incident which no-one in the press cares about. A 92 year old white woman pushing a stroller was casually and hatefully assaulted by a black man. She banged her her head on a fire hydrant. No doubt he’s a victim of institutionalised racism.

HERE WE GO AGAIN

By Pete Moore On June 16th, 2020 at 6:29 pm

The Chinese capital Beijing has put more neighbourhoods under lockdown and boosted testing as it tries to contain an outbreak of coronavirus.

There were 27 new cases reported on Tuesday, bringing the total to 106 people over five days.

A Chinese official has described the new outbreak in the capital as “extremely severe”.

This will go on and on and on unless a vaccine is found. This is the interesting thing: flights from Peking to the rest of China have been halted. The same happened in Wuhan and Hubei province in January. No-one in, no-one out, but only with regard to the rest of China. International flights continued and so the Yellow Peril was exported.

So I say again, just as I said at the time. If the Chinese aren’t receiving flights from Peking then neither should we. Immediately all flights should be halted. If we don’t, and we won’t, we’ll never get through this.

Happy Bloomsday

Ulysses was difficult for me to read. Thankfully I had a great professor who unlocked its greatness. I couldnt imagine trying Finnegan’s Wake, i’ll have to satisfy myself with the Clancy Brothers version of the song. I did like The Dead. Wonderful story and a very good movie by John Huston staring his daughter and the incompreble Donal McCann. I wont be going on a Bloomsbury walk myself, just working from home today. If i ever get back to Dublin in the month of June I’ll hit up some of the still existing pubs.

There is a STRIKE coming down the main Cargo highways of this world. No-0ne has heard about it. It will be devastating in its impact; but yet no-one knows about it. No newspaper or tv station has reported on it, but it will happen; and because of who is striking, and why these men are striking, it will change our very world. Imagine a Global World without the means which made it Global. What made it Global? It was the Container ship, and the professionals which crewed those ships.

Imagine a ship in the days when I was at sea, a half-century ago. We sailed into a port, and we usually stayed there for four or five days, whilst the cargo was unloaded; and then we moved on. 

Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 2.0 Generic

Fast forwards forty years, and the ship’s  time in harbour is measured not in days or weeks: but in hours. The cargo holds, the winches and derricks, they’ve all disappeared. In the place of that series of four or five holds, there is now a series of vertical gantries, which hold that miracle of cargo handling, the container. The ship’s beam has widened to maybe four or five times the size of that old ship, and the ship’s length has maybe magically increased by a similar figure. You are now gazing at a modern Container ship.  As the ship is berthed, along comes a colossal series of cranes, with a horizontal boom which is wider that the beam of this monstrous Container ship. A computer tells the crane driver which container to pick next, an automated trailer sits underneath the landing point, and; in an incredible time, the cargo containers disappear from the enormous holds, and are replaced with more, heading to a different destination. That monstrous ship can move on to the next port, and indeed where it used to take weeks, that cargo ship does the job in days. Read the rest of this entry »

Peaceful Protest

By Patrick Van Roy On June 16th, 2020 at 4:20 am

I refuse……

By Patrick Van Roy On June 16th, 2020 at 3:22 am

Nothing that has happened since the beginning of February has done a thing to change a single view I’ve held. Just the opposite it has hardened my angst against the Idiocy and the Lawlessness.

They scared the hell out of us with Chicom Flu. I agree with the Lockdown as did everyone in the world. The Chinese went dark about a new virus that was dropping people like flies with a ground zero of their bioweapons lab. The lockdown saved lives, but….. Politicians went nuts. Taking on power they do not have and selectively making peoples lives a living hell.  It was not based in any science but by political dictates, the fact that 70% of the dead are all from elderly care centers prove there was no science involved.

The tension has been visible in the air, the fact that there are riots has been expected. It first looked it might explode from the right. It’s never good to see armed protestors for any reason even though it’s a Legal Right, it’s a right that makes people very nervous and leads to nowhere good, However not a shot was fired, not a building burned, not a single person robbed let alone business looted. And still we couldn’t go to work or church.

Then poor Mr. Floyd was murdered, and there wasn’t a single person who did not say plain and simple “The Cop Killed Him” it was unanimous. A burning of a city in the US happens. If Minneapolis burned for few days we all would have just ate popcorn and watched. It would be expected.

Let no disaster go to waste….. there is profit in chaos….

The explosives have been piling up, the stress and tension of the entire lockdown had been waiting to blow. A racial killing by a cop….. The Press and the Politicians poured the gas and gave their brownshirts matches. Cities all over the country have been destroyed. Peoples lives have been lost and still they keep pouring fuel onto the fire. Forget the so called social distancing or any guidelines against the chicom flu…. it’s systemic racism, never mind that out of the 14 killed so far in these riots 12 have been black along with 80% of the property damage being minority owned and ran small businesses.

The icing on the cake Defund the Cops….. No one would suffer more from such a thing than the minority community.  No one who has actually lived in an american city would actually accept such a move.  Ask those who lived in NYC before Giuliani, who’ve ever lived in Philly, Chicago, Detroit. Without the Police the animals will eat you alive and put it on youtube and facebook live….. but this is the distraction they’ve decided to go with.

The only thing that matters is the election and we have one party that has decided if the country must burn and suffer to regain their power so be it. Chaos and Mayhem is the Platform, the peasants be damned.

Contrary to what you’ve been sold, the average American had a job, the average American no matter race, creed, color, or immigrant generation goes to that job everyday, comes home to their family and just want to live their lives. There is one Party that is holding that ransom. Not only refusing to allow the average person to go about their daily lives, but they are spurring on a mob that is attacking anything and everything that is decent while blaming anyone who doesn’t support anarchy and mayhem as the problem. Oh and you’re also racist…..

141 days of hell to go…… bread and circuses for everyone.
