WHY DOES THE UK FAIL TO PROSECUTE SOMALI FGM?

By David Vance On February 10th, 2019 at 7:02 pm

The airwaves have been replete with self righteous indignation from the Political and Media caste at the decision by Sir Christopher Chope to block a private members bill allegedly aimed at protecting children from female genital mutilation.

Sir Christopher shouted “object” in a debate on laws protecting children from female genital mutilation. His Conservative colleague, Zac Goldsmith, said his actions were “appalling”– Lib Dem Tom Brake said the MP had “reached a new low”.

Sir Christopher has argued his aim is to stop badly thought-out legislation. He said he had not been objecting to the substance of the issue, but wanted to see all legislation properly debated. 

WHAT IS THE REALITY OF FGM IN THE UK?

There is a suspicion that well over 95% of FGM in the UK is done by Somalis (including Ethiopian Somali/Oromo ethnic). This would correlate with the level of FGM in Somalia. Yet the authorities simply don’t seem to want to prosecute them. Why is this?

There is significant public pressure to appear to be doing something. This barbarism has been going on for decades, but now social media outrage is creating real pressure for action. It was previously simply ignored by the legacy media and political caste.

WHAT HAS HAPPENED IN UK COURTS?

The first attempt at a prosecution for FGM, was a Sri Lankan doctorin 2015!! There’s no FGM practised amongst Sri Lankans of any faith. Basically the doctor had needed to take remedial action for a Somali woman giving birth (i.e. she must have had severe FGM), so she could give birth safely. For doing so, the doctor was prosecuted for FGM! This was a simply ridiculous situation and thankfully he was found not guilty. Nobody actually tried to prosecute whoever had originally done the FGM.

Consider the 2nd instance of attempted FGM prosecution in the UK.

A charity social worker (maybe Somali origin?) was in a Bristol taxi with a Somali driver. The taxi driver told her that he had done FGM on his daughter. The social worker informed the police, and the daughter was examined and she had indeed had FGM done on her. The local Somali community threatened to riot, and gathered outside the courthouse and even attacked representatives of the charity. Obviously nobody was arrested for that. The judge made some bizarre excuses for dismissing the case and instructed the jury to return not guilty!! Totally ridiculous again, as you really can’t get more solid evidence than directly informing someone he had done FGM on his daughter, and the daughter then displaying evidence of it.

THE PROBLEM WITH THE UK’s 1st SUCCESSFUL PROSECUTION

The issue with the most recent prosecution is that apparently it was done by a Ugandan womanfrom a tribe that does not practise FGM but unlike the Bristol case she obviously didn’t have a violent crowd demonstrating in her defence outside the Courthouse.

From this article, the mother states that she is from an ethnic group that doesn’t practise FGM. Apparently she contacted a voodoo doctor in Africa on how to “cleanse” the daughter. Perhaps he suggested that she could “cleanse her daughter of spirits” by making 3 small incisions in her genitalia? Whilst chanting some African spells? Some Africans do whatever the voodoo doctor recommends.

So the point is that this isn’t the normative UK occurrence of FGM at all, which is almost entirely Somalis doing Islamic FGM on their daughters, because it is recommended according to hadith.

This is basically a sham “ABS” prosecution – Anyone But Somali!

The UK authorities and media are resiling from the simple truth that FGM is a feature of Somali communities spread out across the UK. A refusal to accept this and then act on it is putting vulnerable girls, even babies, at risk to the cutters who continue to operate with impunity.

It’s they, not Chope, who need the chop.

Forget the faux outrage against Chope, the real outrage should be directed against those politicians and “activists” who want to see anyone prosecuted but those from the community who carry most of it out.

Little Commie Liar

By Patrick Van Roy On February 10th, 2019 at 2:41 pm

On Feb. 5, the congressional office of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez posted a new blog entry under “energy issues” detailing her “Green New Deal” proposal and answering “frequently asked questions.”

The page, announcing an 8:30 a.m. launch on Feb. 7, is now gone, and a top adviser suggested Friday it was actually authored and distributed by the GOP.

So the crazy commie puts out a manifesto that I think she plagiarized from a kook that used to live in a cabin and blow things up…..  AOCs manifesto was praised and lauded by Democrats and Environmentalists alike. A good portion of the rest of the country peed themselves laughing.

FAQ
Why 100% clean and renewable and not just 100% renewable? Are you
saying we won’t transition off fossil fuels?
Yes, we are calling for a full transition off fossil fuels and zero greenhouse gases.
Anyone who has read the resolution sees that we spell this out through a plan that
calls for eliminating greenhouse gas emissions from every sector of the economy.
Simply banning fossil fuels immediately won’t build the new economy to replace it –
this is the plan to build that new economy and spells out how to do it technically. We
do this through a huge mobilization to create the renewable energy economy as fast
as possible. We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years
because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and
airplanes that fast, but we think we can ramp up renewable manufacturing and
power production, retrofit every building in America, build the smart grid, overhaul
transportation and agriculture, plant lots of trees and restore our ecosystem to get
to net-zero.

So now Sunday the 10th 3 days later this is the tale….  According to AOC and her people the version SHE put out on the 7th is a GOP conspiracy. The GOP put a fake proposal out from her office from her website to undermine her credibility….

You can’t make this stuff up. I don’t know what’s sadder that this woman is in office or that New Yorkers consistently vote commies and crazies into office…. well they are representatives of “the people”.

The proposal was ridiculed immediately. It’s main proposal was the complete elimination of fossil fuels within 12 years. That to her was the easy part as she says above it won’t be easy to eliminate all greenhouse gas emission that fast, as she states here:  We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast, I am sure politicians will still be able to fly but those farting cows well they’ve just got to go.

God save the Republic.

Her original proposal disappeared from her site, but I copied it first, it’s right here.

Adem Yilmaz, a Turk, was indicted by the US in 2015, accused of the terrorist killing of US military personnel. While in German custody, a formal request was made for his extradition to the US.

Not only was he not extradited to the US, he was deported back to Turkey.

DIDDY MAN DODD’S DIDDIE TAX DODGE

By Pete Moore On February 9th, 2019 at 5:51 pm

What a way to exit the stage –

Sir Ken Dodd had the last laugh over the taxman by marrying his long-time love two days before he died.

By tying the knot, the comedian ensured his £27.5million fortune went to his wife Anne Jones, 77 – without paying a penny in inheritance tax to HMRC.

Sir Ken avoided £11million of death duties on his estate in a final joke on the taxman Doddy battled in a court case 30 years ago.

The great man entertained millions in his long and brilliant career. That alone is a great life, but to sign off with an “eff you” to the taxman is glorious. It’s great for society too, of course.  The capital will stay in the economy instead of being sucked out and wasted by government. Such is the way of all tax.

ATW FRIDAY NIGHT JUKEBOX

By Pete Moore On February 8th, 2019 at 7:04 pm

Because Friday night is Music Night

Another week done at the coalface of capitalism. Another week of glorious February weather. I don’t suppose there are that many covers which are better than, or at least equal to, the original. (I can think of a couple of Bob Dylan numbers which were improved by others, but then that can’t be difficult.)  So a proper good one then. I like the Mamas and the Papas’ version of California Dreamin’ as much as anyone. That was a cover too, but close to the original. All they did was take off the drunk karaoke man who ruined it. Bobby Womack did it differently. And it’s brilliant. That first bass note at 0:06 is super sweet.

Have yourselves a great weekend, whatever you’re up to. As always, feel free to share your fav sounds down below –

WHO COULD HAVE PREDICTED THIS?

By Pete Moore On February 8th, 2019 at 6:25 pm

Giving jobless people in Finland a basic income for two years did not lead them to find work, researchers said.

It seems that when people are paid to do nothing, they do nothing.
