I fully endorse TUV Leader Jim Allister’s take on the news that Butcher Boy McGuinness is off to have a chat with PM McDoom concerning the devolution of policing and justice here in Northern Ireland. This is a key IRA demand, endorsed by the DUP.  

Commenting on news that Martin McGuinness is to meet with the Prime Minister to discuss policing and justice TUV leader Jim Allister said:

“It is hardly surprising that Peter Robinson following the humiliation which his party suffered in the European election would seek to cut down on the number of photo opportunities while in Martin McGuinness’s company. However, the fact that McGuinness is traveling on his own to London to discuss policing and justice with Gordon Brown will hardly fill Unionists with confidence.

“There are a number of questions which demand to be answered in relation to this meeting. It appears from press reports that McGuinness is travelling in his capacity as Joint First Minister. Indeed, it appears that McGuinness thought he was going to be traveling with Robinson. Yet a DUP spokesperson has given the impression that Mr Robinson knew nothing about the meeting.

“So is McGuinness meeting with Mr Brown as Joint First Minister rather than a Sinn Fein representative? If so, is Peter Robinson happy that McGuinness is going to be articulating the official position of OFMDFM on policing and justice? This is a question which must be answered by the Office of the Joint First Ministers.”

McGuinness is simply advancing the Provo agenda but since he and Robinson are now joined at the hip, the self confessed IRA terrorist is also carrying the imprimatur of the great defenders of the Union – The Depraved Unionist Party.

I was sent this image of some graffiti which has popped up on a “loyalist” area of Belfast. I think it is shameful and the neanderthals responsible should be ashamed of themselves. I bet the same people that daubed this will no doubt enjoy having their Chinese carry-out, or their Indian Balti – maybe a Tiger Beer or two! Immigration HAS enriched our land – there is no doubt about that. Who is the Combat 18 group that seems to win the plaudits of some locals? Aren’t they just fascist thugs? Then again, transferring loyalty from UDA/UVF to C18 is perhaps very easy? 

The problem has been in recent years – under Labour – Britain has effectively dismantled its borders and allowed unfettered immigration. It is THIS which has led to social tensions, job displacement and seething resentment. And NOT just in Belfast but I suggest in many parts of the UK.The truth is that it is NOT to the immigrants towards anger should be directed – but rather the multiculti elite and the political ideologues who have betrayed the local community  and blithely ignored the rather obvious fact that immigration must be controlled and must also win the endorsement of the local community. Forcing it down the throat of people only creates visceral tension.

I note that the families left behind by servicemen and women who have died serving their country are being honoured by the Queen with the award of a new medal.

The Elizabeth Cross will be granted to the next of kin of service men and women who died during operations or were killed as the result of terrorist action since the Second World War. The personal commemoration from the Queen is the first decoration awarded in her name. And it is the first time that a reigning monarch has given their name a new award since King George VI instituted the George Cross in 1940.

I think this is a good idea. I believe that our military families bring honour and respect on our country and it is appropriate that recognition be provided to those families whose loved ones make the supreme sacrifice.

Hushing Up Science to Promote AGW Legislation

By ATWadmin On July 1st, 2009 at 5:51 pm

Just last week the House passed the Obama’s Administration’s “Cap and Trade Bill.”

Talk about central planning!  

As a candidate, President Obama stated that one of the objectives of his Cap and Trade policies would be to encourage “clean” energy sources.  He stated that he would to this by making the production of “unclean” energy, like coal, so expensive through fees, taxation and global warming credits, that producers of unclean energy would have no choice but to abandon their endeavors.  He also stated that his cap and trade policies would increase the price of energy to the consumer. The consumer  absorbs the additional governmental fees and taxes in the cost increases passed on to them in their energy bills.  It was Obama’s thought that energy usage will decrease as the consumer is economically forced to reduce consumption and to be more energy efficient.

Now, Obama’s Cap and Trade Bill is tied to the UN and Al Gore’s Global Warming thesis. But new scientific evidence indicates that manmade gasses might not be the cause of any global warming.

Alan Carlin, a scientist at the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) issued a EPA report stating that the EPA should consider actual science and not politicized summaries issued by the UN as they have done in the past.  

The report was hushed up.  Mr. Carlin’s supervisor sent Carlin an email which said:

“The time for such discussion of fundamental issues has passed for this round…I can see only one impact for your comments given where we are in the process, and that would be a very negative impact on our office.”

Been away, just back! Let the bells ring out. Former Speaker Michael Martin will receive a peerage, ­despite being forced out over his ­handling of the expenses scandal. Mr Martin, 63, who was branded one of the worst Speakers in Parliamentary history, will be given a seat in the Lords for his “distinguished ability and ­dignity”, it emerged yesterday. Gordon Brown is the man behind this reward for total failure. I presume he will follow him there one day. It is one set of failures rewarding another – at OUR expense.

The Two Sides of New Labour’s ‘Justice’

By ATWadmin On July 1st, 2009 at 4:52 pm

Our Justice Secretary, Jack Straw, whose character is an eponym of his surname, has just refused train robber Ronnie Biggs his parole.  Some journalists, such as Simon Heffer, rejoice in this judgement and I suspect I am probably in a minority of the regular contributors to ATW in utterly condemning Straw for his decision.  So why do I take this viewpoint?

Approximately £2.6 million was stolen in the train robbery of 1963, equivalent to around £37 million in today’s money.  No one was killed or rendered permanently disabled by the actions of Biggs, Reynolds et al.  Yes the train driver, Jack Mills, was struck on the head with an iron bar and claimed to suffer from regular headaches until his untimely death from leukaemia seven years later, but far worse injuries are sustained in weekend drunken brawls and are punished lightly by an emasculated justice system seemingly incapable of recognising real crimes from minor ones.  As for the theft of £2.6 million, are any of the MPs who have also swindled millions from the taxpayers’ purse going to face prison sentences in the Scrubs or  the ‘Bar-L’?  It’s amazing how the context of the theft changes when you substitute the word ‘robbery’ with the word ‘expenses’.

Biggs could have chosen to spend his remaining years in Rio.  Instead he returned to the UK knowing that imprisonment was the inevitable destination of his trans-Atlantic journey. He has now spent seven years in Belmarsh prison (many killers get less) and I think it is high-time, when at the age of 79 and in rapidly failing health, he was released.

I had to laugh at one of Straw’s excuses for his denial of remission.  According to the media, Straw refused to sign Biggs’s parole papers because he was ‘wholly unrepentant’.  Oh, so what do you call the attitude of this sleazeball – and killer to boot – when he recently joked on a television programme detailing his own murderous role in a much more serious prison break?  Was repentance thick in the air that night?  I think not.  And he is a guy who occupies a well-paid job remunerated by the British taxpayer!

It may be that one of my colleagues pens a piece taking a diametrically opposing view to my own.  That is a matter for them.  I remain of the opinion that today’s judgement is just another example of how Labour’s direction of our justice system has created a monster that preys disproportionately on those whose crimes/misdemeanours are the least deserving of excessive punitive action.

Obama Administration Supports Dictator in Honduran Power Grab

By ATWadmin On July 1st, 2009 at 12:22 pm

Via the Washington Post, the Obama administration has come down on the wrong side of the troubles in Honduras recently.

“President Obama said yesterday that the military ouster of Honduran President Manuel Zelaya was illegal and could set a “terrible precedent..”

The facts do not support Mr. Obama’s statement.

As seen in the Miami Herald, the Army arrested President Manuel Zelaya, as he was making an unconstitutional power grab.

“His actions have been repudiated by the country’s supreme court, its congress, its attorney-general, its chief human-rights advocate, all its major churches, its main business association, his own political party (which recently began debating an inquiry into Zelaya’s sanity) and most Hondurans…”

The Army acted on the Supreme Court’s orders – and there aren’t many in Honduras who would disagree with what they did, morally OR legally.

Obama has joined with Castro and Chavez in condemning the act of the Honduran people – the act of defending their constitution. Although what Obama has said doesn’t surprise me, I knew he was a raving leftist, but it does really piss me off.

As Mike points out – Obama didn’t have much to say in support of the Iranian people courageously standing up to a despotic and brutal government.

He was pretty quick to condemn Hondurans for exercising their duty to uphold their constitution.

Charles Krauthammer weighs in saying that Zelaya is acting extra-constitutionally to dismantle a democracy and establish a dictatorship.

I am sick to death of being embarrassed by my president – he’s a disgrace.

Who Am I, And What Year Is It?

By ATWadmin On June 30th, 2009 at 7:14 pm

THE SUN is out, the sky is blue and “a burglar who broke into a house and threatened a pensioner with a knife got more than he bargained for when the victim turned out to be a retired boxer who left him bruised and bleeding“.

Frank Corti, 72, who served with the Royal Engineers in North Africa from 1956-58, dodged the knife and punched Gregory McCalium, 23, twice in the face, giving him a black eye and a swollen lip. He then restrained the attacker until police arrived.

So he did (permission to guffaw granted) –

It gets better –

McCalium, a barman, was given a four-and-a-half year prison sentence at Oxford Crown Court on Monday for aggravated burglary and was told by the judge he had “got what he deserved”.

And all of a sudden, it’s Life on Mars and I’m disoriented.

And I Thought I Hated The State

JEFF KNAEBEL, an American living in India, renounces his citizenship and becomes a former American living in India.

I certainly don’t agree with all of his reasons for doing so, but it’s a compelling argument.

Sex, Omission and Protecting Heinous Crime in the Name of Political Correctness

By ATWadmin On June 30th, 2009 at 4:55 pm

The AP recently reported the story of a man who allegedly raped his own 5- year old adopted son in Durham, North Carolina.  To my knowledge, the AP omitted any reference to the sexual orientation of the perpetuator of this heinous crime.

Mike Adams writes:

University administrator Lombard is accused of logging on to a chat room online and describing himself as a “perv dad for fun.” The detective who wisely looked into the suspicious screen name says that Lombard admitted to molesting his own adopted son. All this was before allegedly inviting a stranger to travel to North Carolina from another state to statutorily rape his already-molested adopted son. .

Outrage in the MSM?  I don’t see any. Rape of a child…yawn.

The man accused is identified as Frank Lombard, a prominent health researcher at Duke University. He is a white and gay, and his victim, a 5 year old innocent child,  is black. 

Just for fun, compare this to the 2006 outrage caused by the false accusation of rape by a black stripper against the white lacrosse team at Duke University.  The facts of the stripper’s story did not add up but that did not stop the MSM, and the Durham DA, from nonstop outrage against the white lacrosse players. 88 Duke faculty members even took out a full page ad accussing the innocent men of rape and racism.

The silence of the MSM leads me to ask: does protection of gay lifestyle “choices” trump outrage over pedophilia? Anything to protect gay activist agenda, mainstreaming homosexuality complete with child adoption, marriage vows and unquestioned acceptance?

Would the delicate political coalition between blacks and gays be jeopardized if the MSM expressed outrage over this disgusting crime, and would the ability of gay couples to adopt be jeopardized as well?

Apparently so.
