Somewhere, over the rainbow; there’s a laser-guided bomb.

By Mike Cunningham On September 26th, 2014 at 2:58 pm

In the discussions, at present interminably rolling on in the House of Commons, regarding military intervention in Iraq, but never, of course in Syria, against the murderous clowns of Islamic State, which I have been watching, I was reminded of only one man.

He was an explorer, a believer in trade routes, and he had persuaded the Spanish Royal family of the existence of untold treasures beyond the ocean’s horizon. He sailed, he discovered the New World, he returned. But, the sad truth was that:-

Christopher Columbus; when he sailed, he did not know where he was going.

Christopher Columbus; when he returned, he did not know where he had been.

Christopher Columbus, canny and shrewd man that he was; did it all on borrowed money.

 

Remind you of anyone in our close-knit political world?

It’s a Good Day !

Attorney General Eric Holder Announces His Resignation

HolderAh such sweet music. Now this scumbag worst representation of Attorney General should be punished for his contempt of Congress charge, and then served with indictments starting with Obstruction and we’ll build from there.

No one has gotten into the why now theories yet, personally I could careless. The Man now needs to feel the full brunt of the consequences of being the most political, corrupt, and racist creature to ever hold the Office of Top Cop in the Country.

Will it happen? I doubt it,  we’ve got men with no honor and no spine supposedly as the “Representatives of the People”, these men and woman represent no real aqmerican of any ilk except their own.

Well all I can say is Bye Scumbag, may the Circle of Life work it’s justice on you….. we could only hope.

 

UPDATE:  Here is a list to ponder on with the Wonderful AG Eric Holder.

1. Operation Fast and Furious, probably the most reckless law enforcement operation ever carried out by the Justice Department. This gun-running scandal led directly to the death of an American border agent and many Mexican citizens. Holder was held in contempt because of his refusal to turn over information and documentation about this operation gone wrong that he basically claimed he knew nothing about.

2. Holder has waged a war on election integrity and “racialized and radicalized the [Civil Rights] Division to the point of corruption” according to one current Justice employee, embedding “politically leftist extremists in the career ranks who have an agenda that does not comport with equal protection or the rule of law; who believe that the ends justify the means; and who behave unprofessionally and unethically.”

3. Failure to conduct a real, criminal investigation of the IRS targeting of conservative organizations and to enforce the contempt citation issued by the House of Representative against Lois Lerner.

4. Reinstituting the Clinton-era model for handling terrorists that endangers the national security and safety of the American people and going after journalists in leak investigations while ignoring leaks coming out of the White House from high-level administration officials.

5. Failing to advise President Obama against taking actions that violate the Constitution and federal law, refusing to enforce or defend federal laws and trying to persuade state attorneys general to engage in the same type of behavior of refusing to defend laws passed by their state legislatures.

6. Engaging in collusive “sue and settle” lawsuits with advocacy organizations and political allies of the president in order to implement regulations and new requirements without public notice or participation in order to use taxpayer money to fund the budgets of liberal groups.

7. Treated Congress with contempt and did everything he could to evade its oversight responsibilities by misleading, misinforming and ignoring members of Congress and its committee.

KEEP IT IN THE FAMILY….

By David Vance On September 25th, 2014 at 8:25 pm

Seen this?

Germany’s national ethics council has called for an end to the criminalisation of incest between siblings after examining the case of a man who had four children with his sister. Patrick Stuebing, who was adopted as an infant and met his sister in his 20s, has launched several appeals since being imprisoned for incest in 2008 and his lengthy legal battle has prompted widespread public debate. Sexual relations between siblings or between parents and their children are forbidden under section 173 of the German criminal code and offenders can face years in prison.

It’s surreal for a “National Ethics Council” to support Incest but such are the time we live in.

THE LONGER THEY LIVE HERE, THE BIGGER THE PROBLEM?

By David Vance On September 25th, 2014 at 1:09 pm

If true, this is disturbing;

“British Muslims most at risk of radicalisation are those whose families have the strongest links to the UK, new research claims. A University of London study found being financially comfortable but suffering from mild depression and being socially isolated were also factors which linked those sympathetic to terrorism. Recent immigrants, on the other hand, were far less likely to support violent protest, even if they felt unwelcome in their adopted communities.”

So, the longer a Muslim lives in the UK the greater their susceptibility to becoming a Jihadist. That’s quite telling.

 

SHE AIN’T HEAVY….

Here is the received wisdom of someone that I would characterise as a welfare parasite but who is more accurately defined as a core Labour voter :-)

An obese mother-of-two who lives on benefits says she needs more of taxpayers’ money to overhaul her unhealthy lifestyle. Christina Briggs, 26, from Wigan, says she hates being 25 stone but she can’t do anything about it because she can only afford junk food. Meanwhile, exercise is out of the question because she doesn’t have the funds to join a gym. The single mother told Closer Magazine: ‘It’s not easy being overweight and on benefits. If I was well off, I’d be able to buy fresh food and afford a gym membership. “

Tell you what, love, stop cramming the food down your thick neck, exercise, and stop thinking the world owes you a living! It’s the mindset that is so flabby – the mindset that seems to think that “all she afford is junk food” and that we all have to out our hand in our pocket and give her more benefits so she will deign to eat better. Take a hike. Preferably several.

A Letter to an M.P.

By Mike Cunningham On September 25th, 2014 at 12:39 pm

The following is the contents of an e-mail letter sent this morning to my own MP, Roberta Blackman-Woods, a Shadow Minister in the Labour Party:-

Thursday 25 September 2014

Dear Roberta Blackman-Woods,

I write in connection with the forthcoming proposal of the Prime
Minister, scheduled for debate in the Commons on Friday, to allow him
to add the R.A.F.’s bombers, equipment and personnel to join the action
against Islamic State’s operations in Iraq. I realise that you, as a
Shadow Minister, have undertaken to act in a concerted fashion with
most of your Party Colleagues, and to vote as required, again in
concert with your Party; but I am writing to ask you to consider what
you are being both asked and required to vote upon. It is just about a
year since the scheduled vote, put forward by the Prime Minister, where
Parliament was asked to authorise attacks on the Syrian Regime as they
had allegedly deployed chemical weaponry; and of course, due in a large
part to the considered thoughts and votes of the Labour Party, that
vote was defeated.

You are now being asked to vote, once more, upon this issue, but this
time to act, in concert with a ‘coalition’, in degrading and destroying
the infrastructure of the people who fight under the black flag of
Islamic State. You are being asked to authorise a Western element which
will actively intrude into a religious and civil war in the Middle
East. You, as a Member of Parliament, are being asked to authorise
exactly what was sought just a year ago, but this time, you are being
asked to have our Forces fight in only one part of the conflict area,
namely Iraq, against a Force which is, itself, fighting against the
very people, namely the Syrian Government, you were asked previously to
bomb and attack.

It is not often that I find myself nodding in perfect agreement with a
Guardian writer and journalist, but what Simon Jenkins said when
interviewed on the BBC was perfectly correct; air strikes alone do not
work; you have to defeat an army with another army, and if the Iraqi
Army cannot fight, with all the weaponry at their disposal, maybe it is
about time the Arabs realised they have got to sort out their own
problems. We should not get involved with a religious dispute in
Islamic countries; if the West needs a memory jog, just check out what
happened in Libya. Maybe Gaddafi was a very bad man, but just look at
what that unhappy and terror-torn nation has inherited after we, the
French, the British and the Americans ruled the skies above Tripoli and
allowed the opposition to steamroller the old regime into the ground!

We should not be in that theatre of war; we should not even be thinking
about it. Please use the information available to you, so that you
might advise your colleagues, many of whom still remember what the end
result of our last adventures in Iraq and Afghanistan actually turned
out to be, and then vote down any idea that British jets should once
again strike at the behest of a Prime Minister who might sound as
though he knows what is going to happen, but has not yet considered the
long-term results, which may well turn to be even more disastrous than
the previous follies pursued by your own predecessors!

Yours sincerely,

Mike Cunningham

I would urge all British ATW readers to contact their own MPs, by means of
‘Write to Them’, or by any other means available, because Parliament needs to be aware of the perils of sleep-walking into a disaster area!

 

WAR DOES THE STRANGEST THINGS

By Pete Moore On September 24th, 2014 at 8:34 pm

I’m totally confused with the Middle East now –

ByTpGzSIIAETQd1

The Prime Minister meets face to face with President Rouhani of Iran today in New York. That’s the president of Assad’s staunch ally, of Hezbollah’s staunch ally, of Russia’s ally and of Israel’s great foe.

Sorry, are London and Washington allied with Assad now, or still trying to unseat him? It might be tempting to hope for a bit more chat and less of the war talk over ME affairs, but then Gaddafi was a new friend of the West and we know how that worked out for him.

A FORMULA FOR SUCCESS OR FAILURE…?

It’s always important never to let facts get in the way of political debate.

Lord Barnett, the man who devised the method by which central funding is distributed to the regions says he did it “on the back of an envelope” and it was time for it to end.  Lord Joel Barnett said he made up the formula when he was in the Treasury during the Callaghan Labour Government 35 years ago to stop ministers constantly pestering him for more money. He said: “There was already a long-established convention for funding public spending in Scotland, based on the relative populations of England and Scotland almost a century before. “I merely adjusted the figures to take account of changes in the relative populations of the four home nations and drew up the spending figures accordingly”

Barnett now states that his formula is out of date and needs major revision. It is seen as overly generous to Scotland, N.Ireland and Wales. Yet during the Scottish Referendum pledges were made by the Westminster Parties that should Scotland say NO then this over allocation of funds to the Celtic fringe would continue!!!!! How wrong is that? It is high time that England stopped being bled dry by the regions. Barnett opposes his own formula for distribution of funding and yet  – and this is the AMAZING  bit – the Provinces all cry out that they want even MORE!!!!!!!!!!

 

A PARTY UNITED…

This made me chuckle.

“First Minister Peter Robinson has denied he has any plans to stand down. Mr Robinson issued a statement on Wednesday after senior DUP politician Edwin Poots claimed he would leave the top job before the assembly elections. “Neither now, nor before the assembly election, have I any plans to stand down,” Mr Robinson said.

So, if Robinson has no plans to step down, why did a senior DUP Politician go on the air and state that it was his understanding Robinson WOULD step down?

OUR WONDERFUL GLOBAL HEALTH SERVICE…

By David Vance On September 24th, 2014 at 11:12 am

Unknown-1

I am sure that anyone listening to Labour leader Ed Miliband lavishing praise on the NHS yesterday at his party conference would have been moved to tears, albeit of laughter. He told us that there was a “Crisis” in the NHS and that he would solve this by taxing some people even more. And how, you may ask, did his Comrades in the NHS respond?

The NHS is to be hit by strike action over pay for the first time in 32 years amid staff anger at being denied a 1% salary rise by the health secretary, Jeremy Hunt.

Ah, so the caring compassionate NHS seeks to impose its will over the democratically elected Government and is quite happy to punish patients in the process. I see. What could be more reasonable?

Still, the fact is that our doctors and nurses are run off their feet – there is JUST not enough of them. This might explain why…

More than 160 doctors, nurses, paramedics and other NHS staff  are to go to ebola- ravaged West Africa. They will spend six weeks trying to stem the worst ever outbreak of the disease, which has claimed more than 2,800 lives.

Right — so, not sooooo busy that they can’t take a paid sabbatical “fighting” Ebola?

Listen, the NHS is a fraud, a chronic anachronism which places itself above those it serves – the PATIENTS. It may be a totem pole for the political establishment and politicians may all queue up to praise it but it will eventually collapse under the weight of its own neo-Stalinist bureaucracy,
