HOW WE CAME TO LOVE BIG BROTHER…

By ATWadmin On April 30th, 2007 at 7:23 am

cctv.jpgI note that there are now more than four million CCTV cameras in the UK, one for every 14 people, and the national DNA database which was set up by police to combat crime now holds 3.5 million profiles. I also see we now have the use of special listening devices which can be placed in lamp posts, street furniture and offices. More than 300 of the cameras with built-in microphones have been fitted in benefit offices and city centres. The equipment can pick up aggressive tones on the basis of decibel level, pitch and speed at which words are spoken. Westminster council has already started piloting the listening devices, but experts say the use of these microphones raises questions about how surveillance can be used to intrude into the private lives of citizens. How have we come to this pretty pass where we are being watched and listened to wherever we go?

Simple – we have a political class  – Labour/Conservative/Liberal – which wants to monitor and control us, to restrict our liberty. We need to rise up and assert our independence and demand our freedoms back. Big Brother may be watching us – but he needs to be given a pair of blackened eyes.  

Here is the warning…

"He gazed up at the enormous face. Forty years it had taken him to learn what kind of smile was hidden beneath the dark moustache. O cruel, needless misunderstanding! O stubborn, self-willed exile from the loving breast! Two gin-scented tears trickled down the sides of his nose. But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother. "

THE WAR ON CATTLE….

By ATWadmin On April 30th, 2007 at 7:12 am

Guess what? The greatest threat facing our planet is……cattle. Or more specifically, the CO2 they emit as a consequence of their diet. The European Union has identified the risk that livestock represent to planet Earth and an official EU declaration demands changes to animals’ diets, to capture gas emissions and recycle manure. I would have thought that when it comes to manure, the EU is quite expert at recycling it. Honestly, the EU talks a load of bull….

NO FIXED HAIRSTYLE….

rron261l.jpgHere’s ANOTHER story coming from wise man Jim Baker’s favourite"stabilising force" in the Middle East, Iran.

Iranian police have warned barbers not to give men western hair styles or to use make up on them. The move is part of a fierce crackdown on what is known locally as un-Islamic clothing, that this year is also targeting men. Hair stylists have been warned that they could lose their licenses if they do not comply. Police say that as well as avoiding western hairstyles and make up, barbers should not pluck customers’ eyebrows. I guess a short back and sides is out of the question! 

TERRORISTS TO RULE IRELAND, NORTH AND SOUTH?

By ATWadmin On April 30th, 2007 at 7:09 am

gerry.jpgWell now, IRA/Sinn Fein Godfather Gerry Adams reckons his mutant Party will be in government both north and south of the border by the end of May. His comments follow news that a general election will be held in the Republic of Ireland on 24 May. Irish PM Bertie Ahern has sought the formal dissolution of the Dail from Irish President Mary McAleese. Adams said his party was ready to take an active role. "We are going into this election in a stronger position than ever before," he said. "We are contesting right across the state. "By the time the election is over, we’ll be in government here in the north and we’re ready for government in the south, and we’re looking a mandate."

He may be right and what a shaming indictment on both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland if the people vote terrorists into power as Adams hopes. To my mind, the growth of IRA/Sinn Fein evidences a moral malaise amongst the electorate in both political jurisdictions and if this monstrous organisation does grab power then, in the long run, a price will have to be paid. You cannot parley with evil, grant it what it seeks, and then expect all will be well.  I hope the people in the Republic show better judgement than those in Northern Ireland and keep terrorist scum OUT of power. 

WHAT IS SADR THAN A DEMOCRAT?

By ATWadmin On April 30th, 2007 at 6:59 am

al sadr.jpgWonder how the eight Democrat US Presidential hopefuls feel about the fact that Shia thug "cleric" Muqtada al-Sadr now quotes them when he attacks President Bush?

Radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr launched a strong attack Saturday on President George W. Bush, calling him the “greatest evil” for refusing to withdraw American troops from Iraq. Al-Sadr’s statement was read during a parliament session by his cousin, Liqaa al-Yassin, after the U.S. Congress ordered U.S. troops to begin leaving Iraq by Oct. 1. Bush pledged to veto the measure and neither the House nor the Senate passed the measure with enough votes to override him. “Here are the Democrats calling you to withdraw or even set a timetable and you are not responding,” al-Sadr’s statement said

 

As I have said before, it was a serious calamity to permit this little Shi’ite monster to remain this side of eternity. But now he and the Dem’s have the same objective – TROOPS OUT!

Romney Gets It

By ATWadmin On April 30th, 2007 at 2:00 am

American Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney Gets It

                                                On jihad:pic-of-mitt.jpg

"Whether it’s Hamas or Hezbollah; Al Qaeda or Shia and Sunni extremists, there is an overarching goal among the violent Jihadists – and it transcends borders and boundaries. That goal is to replace all modern Islamic states with a religious caliphate, to destroy Israel, to cause the collapse of the West and the United States, and to conquer the entire world."

 On a nuclear Iran:

“…we have to keep Iran from developing a nuclear bomb. Their ambition to develop nuclear weaponry is clear: they have a virtually inexhaustible supply of clean natural gas for energy, they have refused Russia’s offer to supply nuclear fuel for their power. Obviously, their nuclear ambition has nothing to do with clean energy. …

Ahmadinejad has gone beyond the boundary of outrage, beginning with his calculated desecration of history. His purpose is not only to deny the Holocaust; it is to deny Israel. He is doing what another evil man did before him: conditioning minds to acquiesce to the elimination of a people."

Mitt Romney has a specific plan:

"First, we should severely tighten economic sanctions. I think the Bush Administration deserves a lot of recognition for restricting access to our banking and credit services, because financial, and credit and monetary penalties are some of the most effective sanctions there are. And we must get other nations to act now to follow our lead.

"In my meetings in Israel in January it became clear to me that pension funds, such as the one here in New York City, have invested in companies like the French oil giant, Total. After New York State named its Comptroller, I wrote him, and I also wrote to Governor Spitzer, and Senators Schumer and Clinton and urged them to disinvest from companies that have significant operations in collaboration with Iranian regimes.

"Second, I think it’s important for us to isolate Iran diplomatically. Their leaders should be made to feel exactly like those of Apartheid South Africa, or worse. That’s why I ordered the state police of Massachusetts to refuse security details for former Iranian President Khatami when he came to Harvard.

"Of course, we can communicate and talk with Iran and I support the upcoming efforts to discuss security in Iraq with Iraq’s leaders and their neighbors in the region. But until there are indications that high level engagement would do anything other than reward bad behavior, I don’t believe that we should be engaging Iran in direct, bilateral negotiations over their nuclear weapons program. Iran’s nuclear intransigence is repulsive to the entire world and we shouldn’t let Iran try to position it as an Iran vs. a US thing….

…"There’s a third effort. Arab states need to join this effort to prevent a nuclear Iran. These states can do a lot more than just wring their hands and urge America to do all the work. They should support Iraq’s nascent government; they can help America’s focus on Iran quickly by turning down the temperature on the Arab-Israeli conflict; they can stop the financial and weapons flows to Hamas and Hezbollah; and they must tell their Palestinian friends to drop their campaign of terror and recognize Israel’s right to exist….

…In the current conflict, there is only one way to lose, and that is if we as a civilized world decide not to lift a finger to defend ourselves, or our values, and our way of life…."

Excerpted from a speech Romney gave in New York, April 26, 2007.  Complete speech here.

 

1000 AND NOT OUT!

By ATWadmin On April 29th, 2007 at 6:46 pm

795151-795168-thumbnail.jpgFunny how time moves on – it only seems like yesterday since ATW switched platforms and moved here onto Squarespace. In fact it was on the 1st November 2006 and we’re about to clock up 6 months here on this new site. I’ve also just clocked up my 1000th post in that time period. Hope you’ve enjoyed reading them, (or at least some of them!) and of course all those other posts from my fellow writers here on the site.  ATW moves into it’s second six months on the new site with an ever-growing readership, more writers to entertain and challenge you, and above all a desire to put the world to RIGHT!

DARFUR – CELEBS WEIGH IN….

By ATWadmin On April 29th, 2007 at 2:19 pm

daydafur.jpgToday is the Global Day for Darfur  with events taking place in 35 capitals to mark the fourth anniversary of the conflict. Protests included a rally in Downing Street in London, as well as a march on Rome’s Coliseum and a demonstration in the German capital Berlin. Some 200,000 people have died since the conflict began, according to the UN. Celebrities backing the campaign, such as George Clooney and Mick Jagger, have signed a statement accusing the international community of apathy.

Let’s be clear about a few points. What is happening in Darfur is Jihad-sponsored genocide. The "International Community", meaning the UN and its cheer-leaders in the liberal elite, are WELL AWARE of what has been going on for years now , and they are also well aware that each time the US has sought to have it defined as GENOCIDE these immoral whores in the UN have shown their characteristic cowardice and refused to accept this Why? Because accepting the Jihad-led Arab racist genocide might mean doing something and that is where the UN shows its utter ineptitude. It is useless and apart from pretty words, it can do nothing. Remember Rwanda?  

Also many of those who are out demonstrating today – turning round some 10,000 hourglasses filled with fake blood to highlight the continuing violence in Darfur  -will be the same people that demonstrate against US led war on terror. Well, what is happening in Darfur is part of the Al Queda strategy so why do leftists oppose the genocide in Darfur and oppose US efforts to defeat Al Queda?

MISS STAFF ROOM……

By ATWadmin On April 29th, 2007 at 8:58 am

So, I was reading The Sunday Times prognostications concerning the likely performance of NuLabour in the local elections coming up next week. It seems that Labour are going to get a good drubbing, and you might think that is welcome news …but not necessarily.

For a start, the Liberal-Democrats, that most loathsome of political opportunistic parties, are being forecast to record their highest ever share of the vote, which is shocking given just how excremental Menzies Campbell has been as leader and how pathetic their policies really are – even if the BBC does love them. But worse still, "Call Me Dave" Cameron’s Conservatives have stumbled across a new target voter, dubbed her "Miss Staff Room" and this is who they think they now have to go after, apparently. Here’s what this key Tory voter thinks…

"Kevin O’Donnell, 26, a primary school teacher from Woking in Surrey, said: “For me education is a high priority, as is global warming and the environment. I’m a floating voter, which makes me valuable. Labour’s been too dictatorial – I don’t believe the state always knows best. But when David Cameron says he wants the staff room vote he needs to be more specific about how he’s going to attract me.”

 

How much rubbish is that? This "new" target group is more liberals. Everything Cameron does is aimed at liberals. Has Cameron not gone on enough about Global Warming, has he not already indicated that he will support the parasite sector? It seems to me that the people who should NOT for Cameron are a new social group I have identified as "Conservatives"!

only from the m.o.d.!

I had just completed polishing my previous posting when a news item regarding the sad loss of the crew of the R.A.F. Nimrod surveillance jet in Afghanistan came over the airwaves.

Seems as if the remains of the crew had not been identified correctly, and parts of one airman’s body were placed inside the casket of another; which is bad enough, especially for the relatives, but the kicker came from a Ministry of Defence spokesman, who said, "It was regrettable, but it’s been sorted!"

Sometimes, but only sometimes, the messenger is the one who should have been shot!
