WELL THIS IS AWKWARD

By Pete Moore On April 16th, 2019 at 6:39 pm

If Labour were to win a General Election tomorrow, Richard Burgon MP would be Lord Chancellor and the Secretary of State for Justice. He’d be an awful one, because he’s almost as thick as Lammy and Abbott, but that’s where he is in the Shadow Cabinet. He’s also dishonest –

Why can’t we simply be honest about what we think? It’s not as if Burgon’s real opinions will hold him back in the Labour Party. It’s the most anti-semitic political party since that Labour Party offshoot, the British Union of Fascists. It’s the weasel lies an the cowardice which grate, the cowardice to say what you think and stand by what you say.

The North Remembers

By Mahons On April 15th, 2019 at 11:41 am

Who would ever have associated Northern Ireland with great television? And yet in two productions, one epic and international, the other humerous and local it serves two of the best shows going.
Game of Thrones and Derry Girls are two of televisions bright spots. Some might see too much of a contrast between Orla, Clare, Michele and Erin as maidens in the Maiden City and Sansa, Ayra, Cersei, and Daenerys playing power games in Westeros, but I love the give and take across the stage, be it big or small.

Game of Thrones films many scenes in the rugged beauty of Northern Ireland. So many a tourist industry has developed. Derry Girls also films there, in the vexing and beautiful Derry. The writing and acting on both is fantastic, storylines weave wonderfully. The supporting cast of each show an endless marvel of talent. One set on great castles and battlefields, the other in classrooms and kichens which serve as battlefields of their own. Game of Thrones offers the fun of epic fantasy and Derry girls the fun (and funny) of epic reality. The characters in each navigate around their world, following and breaking the rules.
Game of Thrones has intense violence, lavish sex and moments of great humor. Derry Girls has a background of violence through which everyday lives are led, with the girls on the brink of sexual awareness and a humor so finely tuned you think you lived it youself.

Television is often and rightly dismissed. Ernie Kovacs who did it perfectly said it was called a medium because it was neither rare nor well done. But the grand sword and fury drama and the small scale real life comedy show how it can be well done. Escapes from reality and escapes into reality. The art form rises from the medium.
We can say Game of Thrones was a place that never was, full of knights, dragons, dwarfs, kings, queens and pirates. Derry Girls a place that used to be, full of classmates, nuns, aunts, teachers and shopkeepers in a pre-peace process Northern Ireland. Each world filled with moments of heartache, warmth, bravery and laughter. Do yourself a favor and try them if you haven’t yet. Each episode builds on the others. Game of Thrones too big a hit to not find it, Derry Girls more modest and may require some Netflix searching. But well worth the trouble. Both shows a fitting reminder that its scenic splendor and witty population make Northern Ireland the memorable place it is.

Shamima Begum – JIHAD ENFORCER!

By David Vance On April 15th, 2019 at 11:20 am

Back in February, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn weighed in on the Islamic State terrorist Shamima Begum issue. He insisted that not only has she a right to return to Britain but that she deserves“support”. (For “support” read “more of your taxes”) Corbyn’s former lover Labour MP Diane Abbott also insisted that the “IS Bride” must be allowed back to the UK. We also had Conservative deserterAnna Soubry tweeting in March that we must bring Shamima Begum home.

Meanwhile, renowned philosopher (!) and actor Danny Dyer opined that Shamima Begum should be brought home so“we can learn from it”.

Against this background, the Sunday Telegraph reports today;

Shamima Begum, the Bethnal Green schoolgirl, served in the Islamic State’s“morality police” and also triedto recruit other young women to join the jihadist group.

What?

There is more…

Activist Aghiad al-Khederadded: “Members of our group from Raqqaknew her well. There were lots of young European women in the hisba [ISIS morality police]. Some of them were very harshand the local population became very scared.

He claimed she earned between £500 and £1,500 a month for the role and is likely to have ordered the imprisonment and lashing of women in Syria.

The jihadi bride alsostitched explosive vests on to suicide bombers,spy chiefs have claimed. Begum was reportedly seen helping to sew the devices on so they could not be removed without detonation.

In summary, and as AltNewsMedia has repeatedly claimed, Begum is a battle-hardened Jihadi who played an important role in the brutal Islamic State regime. Those who demanded that she be returned to the UK must now explain why they would endanger our lives by having Begum here,

Begum is a repulsive terrorist and the best thing the UK could do would be to send a well-armed drone her way so that one less terrorist walks this earth.

EQUALITY STREET!

By Pete Moore On April 13th, 2019 at 8:56 pm

A judge told a banned drink-driver who smashed into three other vehicles that she would have been jailed if she were a man.

Judge Sarah Buckingham said “alcoholic” Victoria Parry would have been “straight down the stairs” to prison had her sex been different.

This is a strange old country. “Equality” has been state-imposed dogma for a long time, pushed in part by ferocious pressure groups. If a male judge had been so honest in treating men and women differently his career would already be over. Yet I’m in sympathy with the judge.

Men and women are different. Yes were are. Don’t argue. Evolutionary and biological science know this, just as every young chap discovers on first contact with a girl. Women are delicate, precious creatures who ought to be protected. We should not be as keen to incarcerate them as we are men, who let’s face it do not have same battles with emotions and hormones. Face it: men and women are different and therefore should be judged differently. It’s time the radical left embraced difference.

THE TORIES ARE ON THE BRINK

By Pete Moore On April 13th, 2019 at 6:46 pm

These numbers are already extraordinary, and they’ll get worse for the Tories. I suspect that some of the survey work was done before this week’s surrender and extension and all before The Brexit Party gets its European election campaign going. Even before they dive further, the numbers suggest that if a General Election were held now, the Tories might score the lowest vote share since 1832.

Theresa May inherited a Commons majority and a country wishing to leave the EU. She decided instead to ignore the country while making Tony Blair look honest. Now she has nowhere to go in the Remain Chaos, a country desperate to leave the EU and spitting mad at the deception, a majority of party members who want to leave the EU, so little party support that Tories are running from the European and local elections and some members and even Tory MPs hinting they will vote for The Brexit Party. The result is that an anti-semitic, terrorist-supporting Marxist is likely to be the next Prime Minister. That’ll be for six months, then Corbyn will be ousted and John McDonnell, a truly dangerous man, will move in.

And still May clings on. I’m convinced now that the woman is mad. There’s something not right in that head. It’s not a bunker mentality, but an inability to process reality and be told anything.

The Tories might now disappear, and that would be a good thing. It has survived these last few decades by deception, fooling people that it is “eurosceptic”. That doesn’t wash now. When called to deliver, senior Tories have demonstrated that they would even see their party destroyed rather than restore British liberty and independence. Two years ago they had an open goal. Now they’ve lost millions of votes for good and will never be believed, on anything, ever again.

wait wait it would be illegal…..

By Patrick Van Roy On April 13th, 2019 at 3:15 pm

That has to be the hypocritical statement of the day but you would not be alone in making it.

Let’s look at this shall we through the lens of sober reality.

There was a meeting yesterday morning where the President unlike the Congress was trying to figure out what to do with 1 to 3 million ILLEGALS that will be added to the 20-30 million ILLEGALS that are already here.

Jokingly it was stated dump them in the Sanctuary cities. The press that were there were told don’t print that it was a joke…. so of course it was immediately printed.

First it was denied and responded to with that was a joke. Then something magical happened. The Democrats went OFF……

It’s illegal, it’s cruel, it’s an attack on your political opponents, IT’S DANGEROUS, etc etc etc

The Hypocrisy that immediately erupted from the Democrats was stunning, and serious. Not only that, but the Democrats are totally tone deaf. They did not and still do not see how glaringly idiotic they looked with the statements they were making.

Seizing on this public display of idiocy the President doubled down and in the afternoon said “No we’re serious we are thinking of placing these people in the states and cities that have declared themselves Sanctuaries”.

According to the Democrats there is no difference between Legal and Illegal immigrants, according to the Democrats the people pouring across our border benefit our society so much so that they choose to protect even those convicted of violent crimes from being deported. They have passed laws and policies in their states and cities to make it illegal for the police to cooperate with ICE.

They lecture the rest of America that we are racist and cruel because we don’t want illegals flooding our neighborhoods, our schools, and our social welfare systems, let alone the 10% that are hardcore criminals.

But the suggestion of sending these people to their district….. My God NO!

They did more damage to themselves in one day on this issue than all the arguments that have been put forth against their policies.

As for this being something new or illegal that is nonsense. Obama dumped 100s of thousands of illegals all over the country and especially into republican strongholds. He changed an entire town in Pa from a city with less than 10% latino population to one with a MAJORITY Latino population in a single stroke.

In 2014 Obama tried to locate a giant “refugee” camp for illegals literally right across the street from Jeff Sessions house because Sessions was an advocate against illegal immigration and was at that time the leading proponent for border security.

Sanctuary states and cities tell us they exist because these people are jewels that we need, yet just like with DACA when it comes to putting their money where their mouth is they freaked, and refuse to actually support what they DEMAND of the rest of us..

It was a very good day yesterday for progress on sealing the border, thank you Democrats for being Democrats.

just a reminder this is picture from the Obama Presidency of his policies in action.

 
And some good Propaganda from 2014 to go with the picture.

EXTINCTION REBELLION -WHEN YOU DENY GENUINE CLIMATE SCIENCE DEBATE!

By David Vance On April 13th, 2019 at 9:28 am

Next Monday, April 15a group of hard left, anti-democratic, violent, drug-fuelled narcissistic revolutionaries will take to the streets in a coordinated plan to block as much social and commercial traffic as possible. The ultimate aim according to UK organiser Roger Hallamis to cause food shortages and “once that happens the regime will fall”.

Of course, you might already know them, via the friendly BBC and other useful idiot media outlets, as well-meaning non-violent committed eco-champions with the attention-grabbing name of Extinction Rebellion(XR).

This friendly image is designed to mobilise people on a mass scale with everyone included from children to grannies.

There are few clues as to the funding of XR but it appeared suddenly late last year in many European countries and elsewhere utilising the usual small cadres of disaffected revolutionary activists. In the UK the main leaders seem to be Roger Hallam, a failed organic carrot farmer, who came to London to“take out the system” and Gail Bradbrook, a self-confessed pagan spiritualist– according to a recent helpful profile on Radio 4 – and a keen fan of “psychedelics-aided magical ceremonies”for advancing the movement. Both Hallam and Bradbrook are longtime activists and seem to be behind the connected hard left groups Rising Up and the briefly notorious Occupy.

Curiously climate change has only recently been mentioned in any detail by these groups. XR demands that carbon emissions are reduced to zero by 2025but this is a silly notion that is deliberately impractical. Negotiation is not the name of the game being played here. The obvious pretence that the political agenda has anything to do with climate change is exposed by another XR activist Stuart Basden who wrote that “Extinction Rebellion isn’t about the climate”. For Basden, climate breakdown is a symptom of an infected toxic system based on white supremacy, patriarchy, Eurocentrism, hetero-sexism/heteronormativity and class hierarchy. One can’t help noting that this listing would keep some of our more useless seats of unlearning going for years in “Studies” courses.

Mr Hallam has been chattering away of late with frequent why-are-you-so-very-wonderful TV appearances on Russia Today (RT). Organic carrot farming doesn’t seem to have given him much of a grasp of his new found love of climate science. He suggests that once you get above a rise of +2 Centigrade from 1750 “then it seems like it is highly problematical to grow grains at scale”. He continues that if you can’t “store” grains “you are looking at losing the basis of civilisation and what that means is that there is no food and that means mass starvation”.

One hardly knows where to start in countering this largely meaningless gibberish other than to point out that the current +1Centigrade modest warming from the depth of the little ice age over the last 270 years and the small recent rise in CO2 have been largely beneficial and over the last 30 years have led to a 14% greening of the planet and a significant reduction in mass starvation.

Using this nonsense, however, Hallam looks to mobilise brain-washed school kids and air-headed middle-class virtue signallers. The constant public message is one of non-violence but some of the lengthy exposition of aims, particularly to the Russian State’s favourite TV channel, suggests otherwise. The plan boasts Hallam, is to bring down regimes and impose a “better democracy” based on “sortition” rather than one person, one vote.

Hallam regards street blockages as the “pathway to the revolution”. His view is that the optimum point for such protest is two or three steps above “decent civil disobedience”. In his view, disruption and property damage is “good stuff”. Furthermore, Hallam has spoken about street sacrifice and disruption, explaining that” sacrifice is losing liberty and ultimately die for the cause and that brings more people out into the street”.

Ms Bradbrook also speaks the language of non-violence – when it suits her purpose. In October last year, she gave an interview to commonwealthnonviolence.orgin which she stated that she did not condone all violence “just that we understand in some cases it may be justified”. Asked where the cash for Rising Up came from, she noted” some organisations and people that fund activists and prefer some confidentiality”

The XR movement seems to have had a large part to play in the recent spate of school climate strikes. The movement started in Sweden with the lone vigil of 15-year-old Greta Thunberg.

Suddenly school kids started bunking off school all over Europe. Writing on Facebook recently, Ms Thunberg admitted that she had been contacted byXR Sweden activist Bo Thoren”  whose group wanted to do something about the climate crisis”.It was Bo Thoren who then suggested school strikes to the impressionable Ms Thunberg.

Meanwhile, Energy minister Claire Perry seemed to support a similar copy-cat strike in the UK recently and suggested that if she was younger she would have joined them herself. Fellow enthusiast Roger Hallam welcomed the strikes noting that kids were “coming to their senses”, suggesting that it was cool and “better than school”.

Putting Ms Perry in charge of energy let alone education and law and order might seem rash but she is only touting a typical libtard reaction. On the day that the grown-ups in the US Senate threw out Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s ludicrous Green New Deal by 57 votes to 0, the BBC chose to ignore the story reporting instead that four Oxfordshire school children were doing something or other for climate change! This despite BBC reporter Matt McGrath writing just a month before that the deal “deliberately sets out to echo the past glories of FDR”. For some inexplicable reason, he failed to report that the green plan was at times laughed out of the Senate and it is now politically dead.

This type of reporting censorship has played right into the hands of extreme activists like Extinction Rebellion. In 2006 the BBC gathered a group of like-minded elite greenies together and in secret session decided to limit any reporting of science that suggested global warming (as it was known in those days) was not caused predominately by CO2 released by fossil fuel. Under the current news editor Fran Unsworth that diktat has been rigidly enforced. No contrarian view about the controversial theory of man-made climate change is allowed, despite considerable evidence that natural variability is the prime cause of changes in climate. Hundreds of distinguished scientists are left out in the cold while BBC hacks like McGrath and Roger Harrabin sub the latest preposterous climate scare stories from often laughable dubious sources.

Lack of a proper debate about climate change means that it has been hijacked by the hard left, seeking to capture the commanding heights of both local and world economies. And of course the most useful of idiots are the free-basing loons looking for something to do in a world whose social and economic structures they regard with unconcealed contempt.

US intelligence has long believed that Russia is implicated in attempts to demonise oil and gas so that it can drive up the price of its own energy reserves. Few countries delight Russia more than Germany where 60 years of relentless green propaganda has led to a ban on fracking gas. There have been huge increases in the cost of electricity to pay enormous subsidies for the high level of unreliable and intermittent solar and wind power. The cherry on the Russian cake is a gas pipeline from Russia, no doubt with love.

The next time a Conservative (sic) Party government minister decides to fantasise about her lost youth and go on a kids demo, she might care to do a little homework to see what actually lies behind the cultivated activist façade.
