What a farcical waste of valuable police time.

“Officers from the PSNI’s serious crime branch are carrying out interviews as part of an investigation into DUP MP Iris Robinson’s controversial remarks over homosexuality. The First Minister’s wife caused a storm when she told the House of Commons, during a debate on the assessment and management of sex offenders, that “there can be no viler act, apart from homosexuality and sodomy, than sexually abusing innocent children”. Her comments were made just days after she told a radio programme that homosexuality was an abomination and that gay people could be “cured”. The Belfast Telegraph has learned that serious crime branch detectives have been carrying out active inquiries into the remarks following a number of complaints about incitement to hatred. It is believed police are investigating if the remarks contravened Article 9 of the Public Order (NI) Order 1987 by using threatening, abusive or insulting words which have the likelihood to stir up hatred and arouse fear.”

What sickens me most about this is the way in which the militant gay lobby is using the law to restrict free speech. I do not agree with Robinson but I do agree with her right to express such an opinion. It is outrageous that the Police are now turning into Thought Police and the number one crime is thou shalt not criticise homosexual behaviour. Why is this? Gays, straights, vulcans – we should ALL be open to criticism. The PSNI should be ashamed of itself – have these serious crime officers NOTHING better to be going on with? Maybe we could with a few less of them on the public wage bill?

Mad As Hell and Not Going to Take It

In this Orwellian world of ours, of doublespeak and Obama worship, of political bullying and media cover-up, John Ziegler stands apart; John Ziegler prefers the truth.  

For several years, John Ziegler was the host of a nightly radio show in Los Angeles.  Ziegler wrote a book, The Death of Free Speech, and  I often listened to John as he railed against political correctness, and the liberal bias inherent in today’s politically correct taboos.  Ziegler states that he is more libertarian than conservative, and more conservative than liberal;  he prefers the Republican Party over the Democrats only because the Republicans are the lesser of two evils. 

The 2008 Presidential elections stand out  as one of the most poorly reported campaign battles of all times.  Main Stream Media outlets abandoned all pretense of objective reporting and instead of even-handed reporting, the MSM  became open advocates for Barack Obama.   Speaking about the media coverage of Sarah Palin, Newt Ginrich summed it up: “This is like watching Pravda. This is a one-sided, vicious, unending and dishonest campaign.”  

Ziegler  is making a documentary about this media malpractice;  he commissioned a Zogby poll and the results were startling.  Obama supporters are exceptionally ill-informed about Obama and the Democrats in Washinton DC.  

I recently blogged about this and many readers out there in  ATW- land blamed the messenger, and the message.  Don’t feel bad if I am describing you; you weren’t alone.   After much criticism even John Zogby, the pollster, backed off from the findings: “I believe there was value in the poll we did. I also believe it was not our finest hour. This slipped through the cracks. It came out critical only of Obama voters.”

So,  Ziegler  commissioned another poll;  he is vindicated!  Obama voters are ill-informed, and the media outlets that inform the Obama voter are  to blame.  In answer to the question:“Which party currently controls Congress?”  far more of the McCain voters were correct compared to the Obama voters.  Those who watch Fox News got the question correct (64-25) compared to those who watch CNN (48-38)!  

That, my friends, is media malpractice.

Poll results here.

Yesterday I covered the Prince of Darkness aka Lord Peter Mandelson, the twice disgraced politician brought back into the heart of government by Gordon Brown. I see that today Mandelson has alleged that the Conservative front bench colluded in the recruitment by Damian Green of a civil service mole who was seeking to “pursue political ambitions” with the Tories. Mandelson is using the classic tactic of blaming the innocent on the crime committed against them and it is further evidence of the trail of slime he leads wherever he goes. Mandelson is pure poison and I forecast he will fall from power a third time – the boy can’t help it.

Hurrah – some new mopery from the Obama clan!

“Barack Obama’s grandfather was imprisoned and brutally tortured by the British during the violent struggle for Kenyan independence, according to the Kenyan family of the US President-elect. Hussein Onyango Obama, Mr Obama’s paternal grandfather, became involved in the Kenyan independence movement while working as a cook for a British army officer after the war. He was arrested in 1949 and jailed for two years in a high-security prison where, according to his family, he was subjected to horrific violence to extract information about the growing insurgency.”

Oh no. Say it ain’t so? Unfortunately this exciting version of Hussein Snr conflicts with Obama’s version, so I wonder who is lying? The Mau Mau insurrection, which is the event behind these historical contortions, was brutal and terroristic and the British dealt firmly with those involved. I guess this is just one more terrorist connection leading to the President Elect?

21 years ago today, the best thing in my life happened to me. I got married.

It was a cold December afternoon but such was the adrenaline level flowing through me that I never felt the mid-Winter chill. My wife and I have been happily together as man and wife since then and I salute her endurance! You lot here have to put up with me whenever you choose to visit here, my wife has to cope with me on a 24/7 basis, for which I am certain her place in paradise is secured.

After we wed, we fly out to Hong Kong and then Bali. And so it was that I can honestly say that on our honeymoon, the earth moved for my wife. How do I know this? Well, there was an earthquake and the bed moved, the room moved, the earth’s crust moved – and so did I, at about the speed of light as I tried to figure what was happening! Suffice to say all was well but it proved a memorable experience! I know marriage is not for everyone and that is fine but I have to say that it has been the best decision I ever made and of course I am lucky to have such an extraordinary woman as my wife. This one is for her…

The impossible happens. A politician linked to the IRA murder machine has resigned!

“A council education chief quit today after admitting she worked with the IRA in the 1970s. Conservative councillor Maria Gatland resigned as a cabinet member on Croydon Council after being exposed as the author of a “kiss and tell” book about the provisionals. The book described how, among other tasks, she acted as an interpreter for the movement on an arms-buying trip to Europe. The council appears to have been unaware of her past because the book was published in 1973 under her maiden name, Maria McGuire. A spokeswoman for Croydon Council said today: “The council has been advised that Maria Gatland has resigned as cabinet member for children, young people and learners. This follows emerging news of her connection to the Provisional IRA – which has come as a complete shock to Croydon. Officers understand she has been urged to resign from the council. It is also understood that urgent steps are being taken to replace her as cabinet member.”

Ms Gatland’s book – To Take Arms: My Year With The IRA Provisional – was described in a review in Time magazine in 1973 as a “kiss and tell story” about her relationships with the movement. It was written after she became disillusioned with the provisionals, and fled to England. The turning point was apparently when 20 bombs were detonated in Belfast on July 21, 1972, killing 11 people and injuring more than a hundred. “Almost for the first time, I wondered about the crippled and the widowed and the lives that had been changed forever,” she wrote.

She is believed to have been sentenced to death by the IRA as a result.

Think about that last line. She realised just how barbaric the IRA was and she fled it. She was sentenced to death for not continuing to kill. That’s Irish republicanism in action for you. I believe Mr Adams was quite senior in the IRA even at that time, perhaps he could confirm Ms Gatland’s tale?

I see that Californian Govenor Arnold Schwarzenegger has declared a fiscal emergency and called the state’s politicians into a special session to address California’s $11bn deficit.

The state’s revenue gap is expected to hit $28bn over the next 19 months without bold action. The emergency declaration authorises the governor and politicians to change the existing budget within the next 45 days. Without quick action, the state is likely to run out of cash in February. Schwarzenegger and Democrats have proposed a combination of tax hikes and spending cuts, but Republican politicians are steadfast in their refusal to raise taxes.

Quite right too. Ar-nuld is a RINO and I would let him and his Dem allies sort out the mess over which the have presided.  How did California get into such a state and is this a template that Obama will replicate?

So, the UK economy is in mess. Production is falling, unemployment is rising, sterling is in free fall, factories are closing. What to so about it? How about ensuring that we shrink our economy deliberately over the next decade. No? Well, that’s what the government’s climate change adviser, Lord Turner, recommends.

“Lord Turner recommended the UK reduce output of carbon dioxide and other gases linked to global warming by more than a third in the next 12 years. He admitted the cuts will be tough, shrinking the economy by one per cent by 2020 and demanding big changes in consumer behaviour. The biggest impact will be on energy prices which are expected to rise by 25 per cent for the average family, pushing 1.7 million people into fuel poverty.”

Still, surely that is a small price to pay to ensure that we reverse reality. Right?

just a few rockets?

Listening with one ear to the droning of a so-called peace worker towards the closing minutes of the Today Programme this morning. She was ranting on about the iniquities of the Israeli blockade of the Gaza strip, and how they (the charities) could not feed their friends, and how the the nasty Jews were throttling the life-lines of a million and a half Palestinian inhabitants of that unhappy land.

The programme moderator quite reasonably pointed out that every time Israel relaxed the blockade, the result was more and more rockets hitting the southern towns and schools of Israel; to which this apologist for murder replied, “The fate of over a million Palestinians cannot be imperiled by a few rockets!”

We all know how arrogant the European Union is and how little regard it has for the views of the ordinary citizens that make up the Nation States it seeks to control. So it was no BIG surprise to read that the European Commission president said the UK was ‘closer than ever before’ to signing up to the single currency.  Jose Manuel Barroso said he had held private conversations with ‘the people who count in Britain’ and knew that they were ready to move into the euro-zone.

And who are “the people who count in Britain”? Step forward Lord Peter Mandelson – the man who has been forced to resign TWICE from government and who has been brought back from the EU to the UK government by Prudence Brown in a last-gasp attempt to save his ailing regime. Mandelson believes that the UK should  abandon its ancient currency and join the Euro-zone and now he is back at the black heart of government there will be more spinning on this subject.This man is pure political poison.

Of course the government knows that the people of Britain would reject the Euro if we were ever given the vote, but as we saw in Ireland, even when the people speak and say No, the EU elite, inlcuding Mandelson, reject such a response. So, is it possible that Brown could try and rail-road us into the Euro without a referendum, using the financial crisis as a useful flag of convenience? Nothing would surprise me since we have a government that delights in evasion, guile, deceit and arrogance.
