ATW FRIDAY NIGHT MUSIC

By Pete Moore On February 16th, 2018 at 7:16 pm

Because Friday night is Music Night

Another week at the coalface of capitalism done. It’s tough carrying the weight of humanity on your back but hey, the weekend’s here. For no reason other than Thin Lizzy’s “Jailbreak” is one of the great Rock n Roll albums, let’s have a stone cold belter of a track.

Have fun whatever you’re up to, and feel free to post your fav sounds below –

“GOVERNMENT IS THERE TO PROTECT US”

By Pete Moore On February 16th, 2018 at 6:59 pm

Read the first half of this FBI statement. Then read it again and let it sink in.

Maybe the FBI was busy with important stuff, like chasing ghost Russians. Cruz made no secret of his intentions. He told people and posted it online. Youtube could have raised the flag and did nothing. Maybe they were busy with important things too, like demonetising conservative accounts. I heard on the wireless today that the police had been called out 39 times because of Cruz’ behaviour. Yet still no-one did anything. No-one put down a doughnut to do any thinking, join a couple of dots, or take any responsibility. This is what happens when everything is left to government.

AGENT CORBYN HAS SOME QUESTIONS TO ANSWER

By Pete Moore On February 16th, 2018 at 6:45 pm

The Sun revealed this week that Jeremy Corbyn met a few times, in the 1980s, with a Czech “diplomat” in Parliament, who turned out to be a spy. I bet the spy will never live it down. Today we see this:

@JakubKrupa

Jakub Krupa Retweeted ČT24

“BREAKING: Officer of the Czechoslovak state security force who was responsible for liaising with Corbyn tells Czech media that Labour leader was a paid informant of the StB throughout the 1980s”

The StB was the Czech Stasi. A thoroughly nasty bunch. To be honest I’d be surprised if the leader of HM Disloyal Opposition wasn’t a commie traitor. That would be the bombshell. Half the Labour Party and trade union leaders of the time were working for the Soviet Union, and Corbyn is more of a true believer than most of’em.

One might wonder if Corbyn paid tax on his earnings. It’s doubtful. He probably gave it to his chums in the IRA.

FATHERS MATTER

By Pete Moore On February 15th, 2018 at 7:33 pm

He had been getting treatment at a mental health clinic, but he had stopped. He had been expelled from school for disciplinary problems. Many of his acquaintances had cut ties in part because of his unnerving Instagram posts and reports that he liked shooting animals. His father died a few years ago, and his mother, among the only people with whom he was close, died around Thanksgiving. He was living at a friend’s house. He was showing signs of depression.

I know I’m talking into a void here. Young men are pack animals. They need to belong to something masculine. They need identity. It doesn’t matter if it manifests itself in supporting a football team. That’s a benign outcome. But it’s pack behaviour. Same with the military. A lot of troubled young men have been sorted out that way.

But many join gangs. It’s a faux masculinity which often stands in for belonging. Some go to the weird fringe, which is easily found with social media.

There was a time when someone would have taken the young Cruz aside and spoken with him. Sorted him out, filled his time with something constructive. That’s the job of  father, older brothers or older workmates. Role models are supposed to judge, tell young men to stop being dickheads and give them a kick up the arse when deserved, or love and support.

Marriage and fathers are important.

St. Valetine’s Day Massacre

Another school shooting in the US today. Story is developing, but some fatalities confirmed. Aren’t we proud…

IT’S SAINT VALENTINE’S DAY

By Pete Moore On February 14th, 2018 at 7:02 pm

Which can only mean one thing – that a snowflake somewhere will be offended at such a traditional, hetero-normative social construct. Which is good, because they deserve their misery. So let’s mark the day with a romantic little ditty, something for the lovers out there. I think you’ll like it:

“Roses are red

Violets are blue

High tariffs make them cost more

Imposed by the EU”

 

Michael Rowed The Goat Ashore

By Mahons On February 14th, 2018 at 11:26 am

President Trump’s long time lawyer Michael Cohen has given a statement in which he claims to have personally paid a porn actress who claimed to have had an affair with the President $130,000 in the last weeks of the 2016 election through a company he set up for that purpose. Part of me wonders why he bothered, it would not sway many Trump supporters if the news was true.

He claims to have done it on his own, and that he did not seek reimbursement or funds from the Trump Campaign. He has declined to answer basic questions regarding his statement.

The payment appears to have arisen around the time of the pussy grabbing fiasco, so perhaps a story of Trump’s dalliance with a porn star in 2006 while his wife was in post natal recovery would not have been flattering.

Personally I dont care about the truth of the affair as it would not suprise me and I assume from Trump’s own words over the years that it was consistent with his behavior. Was the payment and the efforts to conceal it wrong or even unlawful? It seems so. At least it is a more old fashioned dirty deed than potential collusion with a hostile foreign power aimed to manipulate our democratic process.

And Michael Cohen, that loyal mouthpiece, can claim in later years that he helped to ferry his boss through the storm to that golden shore.

THAT OBAMA PORTRAIT…

By David Vance On February 13th, 2018 at 7:52 pm

I liked this version of the “Obama portrait” released today. Enjoy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Interesting choice of an artist Obama chose.  Kehinde Wiley, the artist former President Obama hand-picked to paint his Secret Garden-esque likeness, also has a penchant for painting disturbing images of black women holding severed white peoples’ heads.

 

 

 

 

 

I wonder what appealed to Obama about her style?

Well Worth the Read

By Patrick Van Roy On February 13th, 2018 at 7:09 pm

The following is a good piece on what is really taking place in the US.  If you watch or read nothing but the leftist propaganda what you see and read is that any day now Trump will be carted off in Cuffs for a Laundry List of Crimes that he and his Campaign Team engaged in with the Russians.  Nothing could be further from the Truth. Here is a the other view. The view of Reality.

 

Scandal, Corruption, Lawbreaking — And So What?

by VICTOR DAVIS HANSON February 13, 2018 4:00 AM

What is the endgame to never-ending wrongdoing?

The FISA-gate, Clinton emails, and Uranium One scandals are sort of reaching a consensus. Many things quite wrong and illegal were done by both Hillary Clinton and her entourage and members of the Obama agencies and administration — both the acts themselves and the cover-ups and omissions that ensued.

Remember, in the FISA-gate scandal such likely widespread criminal behavior was predicated on two premises: 1) certainty of an easy Clinton victory, after which the miscreants would be not only excused but probably rewarded for their zeal; 2) progressive hubris in which our supposedly moral betters felt it their right, indeed their duty, to use unethical and even unlawful means for the “greater good” — to achieve their self-described moral ends of stopping the crude and reactionary Trump.

The wrongdoing probably includes attempting to warp a U.S. election, Russian collusion, repeatedly misleading and lying before the FISA courts, improperly surveilling American citizens, unmasking the names of citizens swept up in unlawful surveillance and then illegally leaking them to the press, disseminating and authenticating opposition smears during a political campaign, lying under oath to Congress, obstructing ongoing investigations, using federal funds to purchase ad hominem gossip against a presidential candidate, blatant conflicts of interests, weaponizing federal investigations, trafficking in and leaking classified information . . . The list goes on and on.

The tale of reality that Hanson writes should be read by all. The Storm that is forming is a Category 5 Hurricane and most are unaware that it’s about to hit.

LABOUR NOTICES THE OXFAM SCANDAL

By Pete Moore On February 13th, 2018 at 7:04 pm

It took them a while. Which is a surprise, since Oxfam is pretty much the Labour Party on safari. Ever ready to freak out when a tranny is wrongly gendered (whatevs), it’s been the Three Wise Monkeys from Labour where Oxfam is concerned. Until today:

@DPJHodges

“So Labour finally issue a statement on Oxfam. They attack the Charity Commission and the Government. But not the organisation that was actually responsible for the abuse and cover-up.”

To recap, Oxfam officials went to Haiti after the 2011 earthquake, whereupon they bonked all the tarts. Some of them were underage, apparently. In “Caligula-style orgies”. Then Oxfam covered it up and lied to the regulator, which is the Charities Commission.

They probably still think that they’re good people. I’m wondering of anyone on the Left isn’t a sexual predator. Let’s be honest, the evidence is mounting and it doesn’t impress. As Liddle puts it: “It does give you an insight, though, into the way these perpetually angry and concerned middle-class lefties actually think of the people they are supposed to be helping. So pristine and pious, so sanctimonious towards the rest of us. So aloof from our own national concerns: internationalist to a man and especially in favour of countries where, like Haiti, the whores can be bought for one dollar.”

Powered by Left Wing sanctimony, they probably think that they’re the victims. So Labour’s belated response is no surprise. They’re a;; part of the same strata. Let’s not forget the role of government funding here. Half of Oxfam’s income comes from the taxpayer – guaranteed. It’s allowed a bubble to form around the kind of people who think that they’re aloof from all that grubby fundraising. Why knock on doors and rattle tins when you can nob around with celebrities? So we end up with vastly paid NGO executives who come to think that they’re beyond examination and accountability.

This is a rot which I suspect runs right across the international aid sector. If these strings are tugged much more, we might just find another great industry scandal.
