Trump Not Guilty of Collusion…with Mexico

By Mahons On February 13th, 2019 at 6:59 pm

President Trump may have done many questionable things in his life, but no one can accuse him of colluding with Mecico. The Mexicans will not only not pay for the Wall he wanted, they wont pay for the barriers he has had to accept instead. Clearly they are not in league with him.
He is grasping at the Congressional deal while claiming he isnt happy. Vague assurances to his low information base that he still has ways of building his “beautiful” wall that no one knows about (if so why the government shutdown?).
He is folding on the issue (except rhetorically). He got so played by Nancy Pelosi that he will probably claim bone spurs prevent him from meeting her again.
So say what you will about the very stable genius. He can count crowds his own way, cause unnecessary trade wars and cozy up to bad guys. But he never colluded with Mexico.

Goodnight Nurse

By Mahons On February 13th, 2019 at 12:02 pm

A rather difficult isdue has gripped Ireland, and while it seems simple it is not. Nurse’s pay.
Nursing is an intense personal vocation. Good nurses are irreplaceable. Bad nurses a crime. How do you balance the need to compensate fairly with finacial sanity? Should strikes and work stoppages be tolerated considering societal and health implications? Can you reward one public sector employees at the expense of others? What works, and what does not?

SENATE INTEL COMMITTEE: IT’S A NOTHINGBURGER

By Pete Moore On February 12th, 2019 at 6:56 pm

After two years, hundreds of interviews, millions of words, the hopes and dreams of the mentally ill raised the world over, the Senate Intelligence Committee has not uncovered any direct evidence of a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Wow, it’s as if it was all made up.

TRIMBLE SERVES NOTICE ON THE BACKSTOP

By Pete Moore On February 12th, 2019 at 6:47 pm

Lord Trimble, one of the architects of the Belfast Agreement, has served legal notice on the government regarding the NI backstop.

The allegation is that the backstop breaches the Northern Ireland Act 1998 and the Union with Ireland Act 1800, as well as the Belfast Agreement itself. I’m not a barrister and have no idea.

Guido has a copy of the letter sent to the Government Legal Department.

THEY’RE OUTRAGED AGAIN

By Pete Moore On February 12th, 2019 at 6:36 pm

Left wing and black twitter is in uproar. The outrage today is that Esquire magazine has done a feature about an American boy.

Looks American to me.

Apparently it’s pandering to white supremacy and blah bah and all that extreme-left wing crap. It’s quite instructive really. It’s not about taking down statues and renaming parks. When whites become a minority in America they will be written out of history entirely. Everything will be torn down and renamed, and one day it will be as if white men had never forged the country or even been there.

What’s gonna happen?

By Patrick Van Roy On February 11th, 2019 at 11:58 pm

As of today the 3 week we’ll work out a deal deal is dead. The Democrats couldn’t negotiate in good faith. Everyday they moved the goal posts.

So whoopie no Wall! hurrah illegals and drugs can just flow into the country as they please and to hell with the over 60,000 Americans they kill a year. Democrat Voters can still flood on in.

Now there are 3 options come Friday:

1) The Democrats could have a come to Jesus Moment….

2) The Government can shut down again.

3) They can do a continuing resolution till the end of the year.

I hope they pick number 3. Trump will declare an Emergency, the Dems will tie it up in Court and then in January the Obama Mandatory Cuts from the Sequester he put in to take place when he wasn’t President kick in. It takes $55 BILLION out of DOMESTIC PROGRAMS. To stop that from happening a real Budget not a CR needs to be passed or the Social Programs lose that money.

Then the fight is the Wall or no Welfare.

We will just have to wait to see what happens.

ORBAN IS TOO MODEST

By Pete Moore On February 11th, 2019 at 6:51 pm

Hungarian women with four children or more will be exempted for life from paying income tax, the prime minister has said, unveiling plans designed to boost the number of babies being born.

It was a way of defending Hungary’s future without depending on immigration, Viktor Orban said.

He’s right to be concerned, of course. The curse of economic growth has always been falling birth rates. Coupled with unsustainable welfare policies, governments always turn to mass immigration to keep the plates spinning. Orban rejects such decadence. But he doesn’t go far enough.

No mothers should pay tax because a mother ought to be at home, raising the brood, keeping the hearth warm and cooking her husband’s dinner. It is a woman’s calling and the most important role in any civilisation. Our very survival depends on it. When we are honest and admit this to ourselves, we can see that there’s something terribly undignified in a married woman having a salaried job.

BRITAIN’S TRANSGENDER ENFORCEMENT POLICE

By David Vance On February 11th, 2019 at 10:21 am

The UK is rapidly emerging as a global frontline for police enforcing the idea that any criticism of transgenderism is potentially deemed criminal behaviour and that those engaging in it may face police censure if not possible prosecution and imprisonment.

Two incidents raise concerns about British policing priorities with women being at the receiving end of police activism on behalf of the transgender movement.

A mother is arrested in front of her children and locked up for seven hours after referring to a transgender woman as “a man” online. 

The media reported that;

“Three officers from Hertfordshire Police detained Kate Scottow at her home before quizzing her at a police station about an argument with a transgender activist on Twitter over so-called ‘deadnaming’.

If you, like me, were wondering what “dead naming” is – here’s the answer!

Deadnaming occurs when someone, intentionally or not, refers to a person who’s transgender by the name they used before they transitioned. You may also hear it described as referring to someone by their “birth name” or their “given name.”

(Quite amazing to think that referring to a person by their birth name could be deemed a crime)

The report goes on to explain that Kate had her photograph, DNA and fingerprints taken and remains under investigation by the Police. More than two months after her arrest on December 1, she has had neither her mobile phone or laptop returned, which she says is hampering her studies for a Masters in forensic psychology. By way of completeness, the transgender person concerned has accused Kate Scottow of a ‘campaign of targeted harassment’ allegedly motivated by her ‘status as a transgender woman’.

The rights and wrongs of the allegations do not concern this article. The priorities of Herfordshire Police do.

Is “dead naming” now a priority for this Police force? Consider that violent crime in Hertfordshire has soared over the past decade from 8904 crimes to 22,048 crimes. Is this really the best use of limited Police resources?

Suffolk Police have apologised to a 74-year-old woman for asking her to stop writing about gender issues and to remove some of her posts on social media in case they offended transgender people!

It’s reported that Margaret Nelson, a former teacher and journalist from Suffolk, had written on social media that “gender is fashionable nonsense”. Here is her twitter account.

Further to this in a blog post discussing her plans to donate her body to science, she argued that it is sex, not gender, that is visible to pathologists and medics. “So no, in life or in death, trans women are not women, no matter how many times you say it’s so,” she wrote. “It’s simply impossible to change your sex.”

In a further tweet Margaret stated that  

Gender’s fashionable nonsense. Sex is real. I’ve no reason to feel ashamed of stating the truth. The bloody annoying ones are those who use words like ‘cis’ or ‘terf’ and other BS, and relegate biological women to a ‘subset’. Sorry you believe the mythology.”

This prompted transgender activitist(s) to report her tweet to Suffolk Police who then telephoned the 74 year old requesting that she desist from commenting on the topic and remove some posts that some people might find offensive. Sensibly Margaret responded by asking the officer if she agreed that free speech was important. She said it was. She then said that in that case, she’d understand that I wouldn’t be removing the posts or stopping saying the things I think. She accepted that and that was the end of the conversation.’

In a further development, the UK Government has announced that the Prison Service is to create transgender wings.

The justice minister Ed Argar said the government was “revising” guidelines that said the “great majority” of trans prisoners should be allowed to “experience the system in the gender in which they identify”. Options now under consideration include “clustering” trans prisoners in special wings or sections of wings. A number of high-risk trans inmates have already been moved back to men’s prisons.

This, of course, is a reaction to those instances where those identifying as “transgender women” have attacked women in prison

Throughout the British justice system, from Policing to Prisons, the desperate desire to accommodate transgender activism is disturbing. Just who is Government taking advice from on this issue? Are certain lobby groups disproportionately influencing decision making? Whilst recognising that no one should be discriminated against it is wrong that free speech is being sacrificed to accommodate a vociferous minority. It is wrong that women should be victimised in the ways outlined in this article and yet the trans lobby advances by the day. How many more victims will it create?
