WHAT a 2016 it’s been, and I’m not even talking about the England rugby chaps’ end of year record (played 14, won 14, since you ask). No, I mean that the river of Lefty butthurt, as epic as it’s been, might just burst its banks.
Jill Stein’s recount is swinging the election over there. Over three million bucks have been spent. In return they’ve found another three votes for Donald Trump, and the PA recount failed before it began. What a return, what a bunch of losers these liberals are. Fake news, fake candidates, fake votes, fake counts, fake hate crimes, fake narratives and fake outrage. Back to riots and issuing death threats against electors!
Austrians return to the presidential polls today. The establishment tried to steal the last one from the patriot Hofer. They’ve had months to figure out new ways of faking it, so vigilance all round over there.
And Italians vote today on a raft of constitutional reforms. PM Renzi (another Blair) has said he’ll resign if he loses, hich looks like happening. Waiting to take advantage is the Five Star Movement (populist, anti-establishment) and the Lega Nord (great patriots). Both are anti-EU and both are committed to holding a referendum on Italy’s membership of the Euro and, therefore, its place in the EU.
Elvis Lit the match, but Rock exploded with the Beatles and the Stones.
Overall I’d have to say the Rolling Stones have proven themselves to be the Greatest Rock Group in History.
When you consider they are still doing what I like to call the Geriatric Tour. When your Bands Frontman is 73 years old and your still selling out the House and have been since 1962 that alone earns you the Title.
Add to that they just released an absolutely Fantastic Blues Album Blue and Lonesome that kicks ass. The Stones have to go down as the Greatest Rock Band EVER.
Enjoy this new single, but if you get a chance listen to the whole Album they are still kickin
WE need a second Richmond by-election; the people must have their say on the outcome!
That Zac Goldsmith is such a loser. And a complete idiot. He’s managed to throw away a 23,000 majority in Richmond, revive the Remainiac campaign, even revive the LibDem nutters and – worst of all – he’s got Tim Farrell strutting round like a dog with two cocks.
The once-Tory MP ran such a rotten campaign for Mayor of London that he was trounced by a man who’d be unrecognised in his own home.
So he got on his high horse over government support for another runway at Heathrow, resigned the whip, resigned as an MP and caused a by-election in which he stood as an independent. Such is his strategic and campaigning genius that he was even out-thought by the LibDems! He thought the campaign was going to be about the Heathrow runway, the LibDems cunningly spotted that Richmond is in the top ten of Remain-voting constituencies (over 70% of the loons), and campaigned on overturning Brexit.
So goodbye Goldsmith. The government majority of nine in the Commons is reduced to eight, the BBC is in full on “the people have turned against Brexit” propaganda mode, and I cannot stand that puffed up northern idiot Farroll (sp? who cares?)
Let’s get this straight: over 70% of people in Richmond voted for Remain. Yesterday, less than 50% voted for the Remain candidate. Remain lost votes in Richmond to Goldsmith, a Brexiteer. (There’s no need to even consider Labour, which lost its deposit!)
Oh, and we’ll be having no anti-Heathrow runway opposition from Richmond. You don’t want the noise? Tough, appeal to Brussels.
Donald Trump indicated yesterday that his Great Wall may not span the entire border. I don’t think there has been such disappointment in measurement since Princess Diana found out a ruler doesn’t necessarily have 12 inches.
There are many “vicious rivers” and mountains the President-elect opined, and therefore in some places he won’t be building a wall. Since he was speaking on a Trump-friendly show, he wasn’t asked to name any of the rivers or mountains. He also wasn’t asked if Mexico’s check has come in yet to pay for it. Perhaps he is letting them pay on lay-away?
When the dream does not become reality, will his supporters mind? If he drains the swamp and leaves them with any empty bog, will they be happy?
This is one pick that Dems and Republicans both will like.
James Mattis is a retired Marine Corps General who commanded troops in the Gulf War, Iraq and in Afghanistan.
He led from the front, which not all generals do.
He is an extremely straight talker, shockingly so at times.
He is an intellectual with a cult following.
There are hunters and there are victims. By your discipline, cunning, obedience and alertness, you will decide if you are a hunter or a victim
During the campaign, Mr. Trump repeatedly called for torture against our enemies. But in the course of a short meeting, Mattis talked Trump out of this position. ” Give me a pack of cigarettes and a couple of beers and I’ll do better ” said Mattis.
The man hasn’t assumed the post yet, and he’s already accomplished something important. Welcome, sir.
Russian President Vladimir Putin played a crucial role in helping OPEC rivals Iran and Saudi Arabia set aside differences to forge the cartel’s first deal with non-OPEC Russia in 15 years.
Interventions ahead of Wednesday’s OPEC meeting came at key moments from Putin, Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and President Hassan Rouhani, OPEC and non-OPEC sources said.
They are cutting the Supply Jacking up the Price. If we were at the production levels would could very easily be at, for every Barrel of Oil our Three Enemies Cut we produce two Barrels as a replacement.
2016 just got even better, just a bit. Remember Newsweek’s “Madam President” issue? It turns out that Camp Crooked was so sure of victory, H. Clinton signed a copy on 7th November, the day before the presidential election –
Permission to guffaw granted. It looks like those stories about the champers being poured that evening might just be true.
IMMIGRATION in the last year to June was at a record high of 650,000 – bravo Tories.
Granted, there’s not a thing the government could have done about the record 284,000 immigrants from EU countries, but that’s still 366,000 immigrants from elsewhere, about whom the government chose to do nothing.
The propaganda always has it that immigrants “only want to come here to work”. So what, I’d ask, even if true. There’s more to life than the bottom line, and I’m a free marketeer. There’s our culture and heritage, and how they’re irredeemably changed by any and all immigrants. (It does amuse that many on the Left, who eschew the value of markets, see only the bottom line and the apparent work which immigrants do.) But I was intrigued by the breakdown of these numbers, from the BBC’s Andrew Neil:
Of 650,000 who migrated here year to June:
176k to a job
127k looking for work
89k accompanying others
164k to study
86K other or no reason
So a clear minority of these recent immigrants are working. Even if you add in those who are looking for work, you still have a minority. Students aren’t working, though we can regard them as conducting a commercial transaction. And some 175,000 have come here not to work. If the numbers are accurate, they paint a picture not quite there with the propaganda.
Bottom line: the Tories will never deliver on their clearly fraudulent immigration promises. They won’t do so post-Brexit. The need to vote UKIP remains.
President-elect Trump (auto-correct where are you?) is entitled to select the best people he chooses for his cabinet. I don’t plan on agreeing with all of his selections, I didn’t agree with all of President Obama’s. But having fairly won the election he should be entitled to a high degree of deference in his selection process. Only in instances of abject disaster would I voice outright opposition (little good that it does me). General Petraeus is that abject disaster.
I admire some things about him, and he provided me with the best headline I ever wrote on ATW. But he is a convicted criminal. He shared classified information with his lover and biographer (whose book Balls In may have been too much information).
He’s been convicted of more than Clinton was alleget to have done. Is this draining the swamp or sucking it in? Sure let him appoint Wall Street lifers in contradiction of his campaign. Mere Hypocrisy is a treasured political position. But the Secretary of State should not have a parole officer. Rudy, Romney, or Bolton would each make me cringe for different reasons, but they would not start out as 100% disasters.
I hope and suspect Trump just likes the attention by adding Petraeus to the mix, and that he’ll designate a more suitable person for the office.
You do not defeat terrorism by rewarding terrorists, regardless of how many bleeding heart liberals argue otherwise. Want to know where that flawed approach leads to? Read UNIONISM DECAYED 1997-2007 - It's my first book and it explains what happens when you seeek to appease terrorists and call it peace. It's available right now for ATW readers so make sure you get your copy by emailing the editor! This is the book that dissents from the herd mentality that doing wrong can lead to being right. It doesn't and this book spells out WHY.
