Right gang, a few points as I have just seen the latests ATW comments hissy fit.

Let me make a few points;

  1. ATW is not going away. I am still attached to it and I will still write on topics that interest me. I started this because I like writing about politics and nothing has changed in that regard.
  2. What has changed gradually is the quality and character of the comments here. There are occasions when I write about a given topic and when I go look at the comments all I see is infighting and little if any comment on the actual topic I raise. I find this VERY demotivating. If ever you wonder why my input has reduced, that’s why. I like good quality feedback but I get it infrequently here.
  3. I have come to the end of my patience with all the name calling. I know that several of you want me to ban Troll as you identify him as the root cause of your grievances. I have the same feelings towards him as I do all of you that have been here for years – I respect you all and wanted you to get along. I see this is wishful thinking and so I am disabling automatic comments from this thread on. I will henceforth decide what is to be published and if I see any flames they will be squashed instantly and the originator then banned permanently from the site. Naturally this will hamper the freedom of the site but I have no choice.

I am more accommodating than most but I am fed up with all this crap. If you enjoy the posts here, great, please stay. If all you want to do is fight, please go. I will make the necessary changes in the next few days. I didn’t want this but I have no alternative but to dim the lights.

As you can see, the Union sprays cash at the regions from England yet the Regions never stop WHINGEING about “oh the austerity”…. axe the discredited Barnett formula. THEN await the howls from the parasites.

Which is better?

President Trump just returned from a Ten day trip abroad. He visited the Middle East First. He went directly to Saudi Arabia for two reasons. The first to reassure our Allies that the United States is back on Track. Also to reaffirm the reality that the Main Threat to the Middle East and the World is Iran.

We made a deal to sell the Saudis every weapon they would need to defend themselves from and to defeat Iran. In an alliance that is building quietly between the Saudis and Israel over the common Iranian threat.

While he was in Saudi Arabia he addressed 50 Muslim National Leaders in the Heart of the Kingdom that has been all to complicit with the terrorists, where he told the Saudis and the rest of the Muslim Leaders that they needed to change their behavior and clean their houses of Losers that are murdering civilians in the name of their religion. The following is Obama’s and Trumps speech’s to basically the same group. Compare the difference.

Gregg Allman passed away today. He finished recording his new Album Friday, listened to the last of the editing tapes last night and passed away Today.
He had suffered many ailments including a Liver Transplant. 5 years ago his Liver Cancer reoccurred. He had been living his last days in Hospice as he finished his last Album and his life.

FIRST, congratulations to the Exeter Chiefs for becoming the English rugby champions. They’re relative minnows, only getting promotion to the top tier seven years ago for the first time. It’s fitting that Gareth Steenson got the winning points. The Ulsterman is a survivor of the Chiefs team from those semi-pro times. Long may these things happen.

And well done to the Arsenal, now 13 times FA Cup winners after beating Chelsea … phew. Chelsea are the deserved league champions, I feared the worst, and the worst looked very bad. A work colleague asked me yesterday for a prediction. I seriously said 5-0. We can’t defend with a full strength team and went into the final with three centre-halves missing.

Somehow the boys rallied themselves, were superb, and did our name proud. It shows how difficult a Double really is too. But it’s always a great day when the Arsenal win old trophy at Wembley, even if I still come close to getting back on the fags on days like these.

Up the Gunners.

I put up this little video last evening. It has proven very popular with over 15,000+ views in less than 24 hours!

Alert readers may have noticed that I have frequenty referred to the Jihadi threat in the UK consisting of some 3000 individuals. (That’s about ten times what the IRA ever had, as a point of reference)

I wish to apologise as I was wrong.

It’s 23,000.

The size of a military regiment.

Allahu Akbar, baby.

Memorial Day Weekend

By The Troll On May 26th, 2017 at 6:53 pm

This weekend in my country is a twofold Holiday weekend. Monday is Memorial Day and this weekend is the Start of Summer Vacation…. School kids and Families where I grew up are heading to the Jersey Shore, southern Jersey Cape May, Wild Wood, Margate sadly no longer Atlantic City….

However the main purpose as we celebrate the Weekend is to remember those that have given their Lives in the Service of our Nation. The Fallen. They died for our freedom.

We Love them, We Honor them, We Salute them, and we Thank Them.

In case you are among those who think Western Civilization brought Islamic terrorists upon themselves may I offer you today’s tragedy of an Islamic attack on Coptic Christians in Egypt that left over twenty dead.

The enemies of civilization are like zombies in their killing.  We would do well to all remember that.

Only by insisting that we do not fight back against Islamic State can we…er….beat Islamic State. So states Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn…

Jeremy Corbyn is to take the hugely controversial step of blaming Britain’s foreign wars for terror attacks such as the Manchester suicide bombing. The Labour leader will claim a link between “wars our government has supported or fought in other countries and terrorism here at home”, as he relaunches his party’s election campaign on Friday after the three-day pause. Mr Corbyn will stress that his assessment is shared by the intelligence and security services and “in no way reduces the guilt of those who attack our children”.

Corbyn’s idiocy is profound. Someone might casually observe that Germany has also been a recent victim of Islamic State driven terrorism yet did not participate in “foreign wars”.  Germany, however, has adopted the “open borders’ policy that faciliates Islamist killers moving into its territory. Then there is the pesky business of Sweden and Belgium.

Just like the UK welcomed the Manchester Jihadists Al Queda supporting parents from Libya.
