Mike Elsewhere!

By ATWadmin On March 7th, 2007 at 10:06 am

The headline ‘The betrayal of 10 Generations’ comes from an article I submitted for publication on a Far-Eastern News Website, but it is an attempt to give a somewhat balanced (but probably lop-sided) view of the present elections in Northern Ireland!

When I first submitted for proofing, I was advised that, for legal reasons, I wasn’t allowed to say that the leadership of Sinn Fein were also members of the IRA. so I had to modify the wording to include a passage which stated that Sinn Fein leaders were also alleged to be formerly active members of the IRA. It’s a terrible truth, but "ye have to abide by the law", which is possibly the last thing on the minds of the smiling killers who took the balaclava masks off just a few years ago!

 However, have a read, and tell me if I got the point across!

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU VOTE FOR!

By ATWadmin On March 7th, 2007 at 8:30 am

Ballot-Box-05web.jpgToday is Election Day for those of us who reside in Northern Ireland. Other local web sites may want to talk about which Party will win how many seats, and which politicians will triumph, which will fail. But not this one.

You see I happen to think that there is a much more fundamental issue to be resolved today and it is this;

Do the people of Northern Ireland believe that endorsing a power-sharing Executive containing terrorists is the best way forward?

I say NO. The DUP and UUP say YES.

Therefore IF you vote for either of these parties, you are voting for the triumph of an organisation that has bombed, murdered and maimed its way to the position it now disgracefully holds.

All the current talks of "Bread and Butter" issues has been carefully contrived by the NIO and a brain-dead media to ensure as little focus as possible is cast on the perverted purpose of this election. Government has happily thrown in Water Rates, Domestic Rates, Academic Selection..you name it..all flung into the mix to ENSURE you think about those worrying prospects and NOT the prospect of a grotesque Deputy First Minister in the shape of Martin McGuinness who is a self-confessed terrorist.

IF you have read the local party manifestos, and I have for light entertainment purposes, they are a surreal joke! Lots of hollow promises with no prospect of delivery. The DUP and UUP, in particular, are entirely will’o’the wisp! It’s lot of pretty words but they don’t mean much anymore, to borrow a phrase.

So, be careful who you vote for. I will most definitely cast my ballot and make sure that the ONLY PARTY which ensures liberty may prevail gets my vote – which one is that? – why it’s the one called NONE OF THE ABOVE! I’ll be adding that to my ballot paper, and I hope you may feel inclined to do the same.

Use your vote – but use it wisely.

HOT LIKE ME?

By ATWadmin On March 7th, 2007 at 8:16 am

Alison has already covered this topic on her excellent "Raunch Culture" blog, and I really just wanted to throw in my tuppence worth on what is happening to our children. First, check out this mother’s angst-ridden experience….

"How do you tell a nine-year-old that she looks like a little tart? She struts around the kitchen singing ‘Don’t you wish your girlfriend was hot like me?’. It’s pathetic. She doesn’t even understand what that means. For her seventh birthday, her heart was set on a big breasted doll with pouting lips and hooker heels. I tried to steer her in the direction of the ones that need their nappies changed, but they were beneath her. ‘They are for little girls,’ she said. "Going shopping is becoming a nightmare. I want her to wear woollen tights and flowery skirts. She is drawn to tops with suggestive slogans like ‘Eye Candy’ and ‘So Many Boys, So Little Time’.

 

"Some of the stores have high heels and thongs for seven and eight-year-olds. Why should a child that’s just learned to read be worried about having a VPL (visible panty line)? That suggests her bottom is an object of sexuality to be looked at. I find it obscene. If the Government is so keen to be seen to be protecting children, announcing big plans for a referendum, why doesn’t it start banning disgusting things like this that corrupt our children’s minds and make them feel physically inadequate.  It’s not fair to parents. We try to lay down the law with our little girl, but we just end up with a major tantrum when she doesn’t get what she wants. Everyone else is doing it. Why can’t I?

 

"Her tweenie friends wear lip gloss now so she wants to. Every day, she looks more and more like one of the plastic dolls in her pram. She hasn’t even reached double figures and she is turning into a sexual object in front of our eyes. From the TV she watches to the toys she plays with and the clothes she wears, a subliminal message is going into her little head all the time telling her to be sexy. God only knows how she will turn out the other end of all this."

It’s a problem alright and it is being accentuated because the elite in our "anything goes" post-Christian moral relativist society sees nothing wrong with sexualising childhood. Innocence is tramped into the dirt – and parents struggle as this mother does to cope with it. The role models of Britney, Paris, Abbey and co sensationalise all the wrong values.

Like Alison, I am no prude. But I really do draw the line at this relentless onslaught on childhood innocence. It goes quickly enough – and the sexed up images and messages being sent to our kids are horrendous. So what to do about it? Well, here is some good advice for starters – from the American Psychological Society, no less.

TUNE IN AND TALK: Girls get this message repeatedly: what matters is how "hot" they look. They hear it in songs and see it in music videos and movies. Watch TV with them, surf their favourite websites and read their magazines. Ask why they think there is so much pressure on girls to look good and talk about other qualities that are more important than image.

QUESTION CHOICES: If your daughter wants to wear something you consider too sexy, ask what she likes about it. Girls who are overly concerned with their image often have problems focussing on other things. Explain how clothes that need a lot of checking and adjusting can distract from schoolwork, friends and other activities.

SPEAK UP: If you don’t like a TV show, cropped top or a certain doll, say why. It is much more effective than just saying no, you can’t have it. Complain to retailers and manufacturers who sell products that sexualise girls.

UNDERSTAND: Young girls often feel pressure to watch certain TV shows or listen to certain music. Help her make wise choices among the trendy alternatives and remind her that who she is and what she can accomplish is far more important and rewarding than worrying about how she looks.

EDUCATE: Effective sex education leads to mature decision-making in adolescence. Allow your daughter discuss all aspects of sexuality with you in a comfortable environment.

SPAIN REWARDS TERROR – AGAIN!

By ATWadmin On March 7th, 2007 at 8:14 am

Readers may recall perhaps my blog from a few weeks ago concerning Juana Chaos, the ETA terrorist who boasted that "their tears are our smiles" as he watched the relatives of those he and his fellow thugs had murdered grieve at their funeral. A monster, who should be kept behind bars, right?  Well, ‘fraid not!

ambu.jpgYou’ll be interested to know that despite being sentenced to 3000 years in prison for the brutal murder of at least 25 people, he has now been freed by the Spanish authorities. This was AFTER he had been permitted to have sexual relationships with his girlfriend when he was in captivity – and on hunger strike. He  has received a heroes return by supporters of Basque terrorism – meanwhile his victims are shocked and angry at the quisling justice handed out to this murderer.

I’m sure IRA/Sinn Fein will be in contact with their good pal, Juana Chaos. Murderers of the world unite, you have nothing to lose but your prison sentences. I notice the lack of any MSM coverage of this disgraceful event – covering up for Zapatero’s utterly gutless leftist regime is very much the order of the day. My thanks to Lady Vorzheva for the update – though I am sickened to read of this immoral judicial decision.

SEXUALLY RE-ORIENTATING SOCIETY…

By ATWadmin On March 7th, 2007 at 8:01 am

I am obliged to the ATW reader who sent me the following story.

It concerns the profound impact that the Parliamentary Report on "Sexual Orientation Regulations" will have on ALL of us, and in particular those who try our best to follow the Christian faith. If you think it’s tough being a Christian NOW, check this out.

There are a number of key points in this report which we need to face into RIGHT NOW.

1. The Committee could not be clearer in saying that they believe the freedom to live a practising homosexual lifestyle trumps the freedom to live a religious lifestyle.  How very chic!

2. Where the manifestation of a belief conflicts with the right of gay people not to be discriminated against in their access to services as important as adoption services, it is the view of the Report that it will be necessary and justifiable to limit the right to manifest the belief! Think about that one, folks!

3.  The Committe has the view the Regulations should clearly apply to the curriculum, so that homosexual pupils are not subjected to teaching, as part of their religious education or other curriculum, that their sexual orientation is sinful or morally wrong. (Even it is is. DV)   The Committee is also explicit in their view that no Christian schools should have the right to promote marriage over homosexual relationships or hold to a Christian ethos that sex is only right in a heterosexual monogamous marriage.

4. The implications of the Report imply that it will be illegal for Faith schools to teach that the Bible is right in what it says about sexual morality.

It is perhaps not surprising that the JCHR report promotes homosexual rights to such a degree whilst relegating the right to live out the Christian faith: one of the 11 members of the committee was MP Evan Harris, honorary President of the Lib Dem Campaign for Lesbian and Gay Rights as well as vice-president of the Gay and Lesbian Humanist Association. No bias there, obviously.

This Report provides the legal foundation for an all-out censure of the Christian faith to ensure it does not in any way antaganise the gay lobby. It will mean that Biblical truths are set aside lest they offend.

So – what to do? Well, how about contacting YOUR local MP and getting them to express a clear view on this matter? Do our Parliamentarians favour the censure of our Christian faith? Let’s find out – and let me know how you get on with your MP so we may find out exactly which way the candle is blowing….I will publish your responses and ATW will stand against this naked intolerance of the majority faith of this United Kingdom.

PERVERTING THE SYSTEM FROM WITHIN….

By ATWadmin On March 7th, 2007 at 7:35 am

lg_gerryjoanne_mary_lou.jpgOne of my issues with Sinn Fein/IRA is that they are, in essence, insurrectionists at heart. This is not just a problem for those of us living in Northern Ireland, but also for our neighbours in the Republic.

So I was not in the least surprised to discover that a senior Dublin-based Sinn Fein figure MEP Mary Lou McDonald has used Oireachtas (Irish Parliament) envelopes to send out Sinn Fein material to voters in Dublin Central. You see she is not a member of the Oireachtas – although she hopes to become one – and is therefore not entitled to the privilege of taxpayer-funded stationery. The use of the free envelopes was revealed by the Green party’s own candidate, Patricia McKenna, who appears to be on course to edge out the Sinn Fein candidate.

The envelopes were sent out to voters in Dublin Central, where both SF and the Greens are battling to take Fianna Fail’s second seat in the four-seater. McDonald said yesterday she would have to check with her office about the use of the envelopes. "For my own part, I have been very careful not to use Oireachtas envelopes, which I would regard as being for TDs and senators. In the general scheme of things, this wouldn’t warrant a great scandal," she added.

Of course not – you see subversion of the mechanism of the State is seen as NORMAL by these mutant Republicans, and Mary Lou merely confirms this! It’s also why allowing them into Government is such a very ill-considered idea. 

THE CELTIC TIGERS GET STONED?

By ATWadmin On March 7th, 2007 at 7:07 am

I think that it is pretty shocking to read (Subs required0 that Irish school pupils are among the top drug-users in the world -according to new reports.

It’s a chilly Thursday lunchtime and a group of 14-year-old boys are huddled together on a laneway beside a private south Dublin school, waiting for their "weekly delivery". Minutes later, a lanky, pale-faced teenager turns the corner on a bike and they look relieved. He takes a batch of "selection packs" out of his schoolbag as crumpled notes are exchanged.

The deal is done in seconds and the boys are back in class before the bell rings, their weekend stash of hash and E tabs hidden in the pockets of their school uniform. It is a scene played out in every town and village of the country every day of the week, anti-drug activists warned this week. Predatory dealers are peddling drugs to Irish schoolchildren just metres from the playground and they have no problem finding business.

On Thursday, the alarming scale of drug use among Irish teenagers was revealed in a survey that placed them third in the world when it comes to experimenting with illegal substances. The poll, conducted in 2003, found that 40% of Irish 15-year-olds have used an illicit drug at least once in their lives. In the European School Project on Alcohol and Drugs (ESPAD) study, Irish schoolgirls acquired the dubious distinction of being the biggest teenage drug dabblers out of 36 nationalities surveyed.

Now please note – all Irish ATW readers – I AM NOT having a go at Ireland per se. I’m equally disgusted at what takes place here in the UK but can I ask what IS your view on this issue – ARE Irish schoolgirls hooked on trying drugs? What do you think can be done to solve this? One reads of drug gangs warring in Dublin, Limerick and the other major Irish cities. I favour a zero tolerance to all illegal drugs, with heavy financial penalties and mandatory loss of liberty for those parasites who give drugs to schoolkids.

honour thy father?

In our slightly narrow way of looking at the world, which gives a higher prominence to matters local and National in a British sense, we miss many pointers to a wider change, both in attitudes abroad which have mirrored happenings in Britain. When we discuss the Islamic threat, or the Muslim problem, we don’t lift our sightlines any higher than the borders of our own country, except when we hear of death and destruction in Iraq, or another British soldier being killed in Afghanistan, because they are our own. So when I read a commentary of Muslim problems in Germany, I researched a little, and came out with yet another sign that the wider spread of militant Islam is ever present, and is not so hidden any longer!

We read in Britain of so-called ‘honour killings’ or murders by another name, in places such as Acton, where Abdullah Yones stabbed his daughter, 16-year-old Heshu to death. In another episode, Azhar Nazir, 30, was convicted of murdering his sister Samaira for the foul and heinous crime of falling in love with an ‘asylum seeker’! But casting our eyes into Europe, and Germany in particular with it’s large Turkish emigrant population, and we see more examples of this evil excrescence. We read of Hatun Surucu, lured to a lonely place and cut down by a volley of bullets fired by her three brothers. Her crime? She wanted to live as a Western woman, and was training to be an electrician! A Kurdish man was sentenced for a similar killing, and the court was thronged with Kurdish supporters of this murderer! The extent of ‘Sharia’ justice, with all it’s sinister connotations, is not known in Germany because it has spread so far within the Muslim communities, and since their society is male-dominated, the wider families accept their rule because ‘their god commands it’!

There were plans to place a law on the Statute Books against the whole idea of ‘Honour Murder’ in Britain, but the Labour government chickened out after pressure from, guess who? That’s right; the bloody Muslim Council of Britain. I always though that the law was supposed to protect those who cannot protect themselves! Seems as if it is correct, as long as your skin is not brown, and your religion isn’t Islam!

 

Softly, softly up the dark stair

By ATWadmin On March 6th, 2007 at 1:36 pm

princes.jpgMachinery of government announcements are normally made by you in a written ministerial statement. Officials will prepare this. The aim should be to keep it low key.” So said the leaked memo from Sir Gus O’Donnell, Head of the Civil Service, to the Prime Minister, discussing getting rid of the Privy Council Office in the name of “efficiency savings”.

O’Donnell discusses how the dismembered body of the PCO can be shared out to other departments, such as the Orwellian-sounding “Department for Constitutional Affairs”, but, in an indication of the man’s bad faith, he points out that “the role of Lord President of the Council will need to remain with Valerie Amos since it is the reason she is paid a Cabinet-rank salary.” Maybe this is what Shadow home secretary David Davis means by "redesigning Whitehall for the personal convenience of New Labour ministers.”

It’s not yet clear what the Labour Cabal are planning, but you can be sure they harbour dark intentions – after all, the Privy Council has been around since the 12th Century. Reason enough for our “modernising” leaders to wish to abolish it, along with the oath of allegiance to our Queen its members must swear.  The question with so many of this Government’s constitutional tamperings is who stands to benefit?  As ever, the answer seems to be an ever-more powerful Executive. 

 

Policing by Numbers

By ATWadmin On March 6th, 2007 at 11:13 am

This is an interesting story in this morning’s Newsletter.  Notwithstanding natural wastage and the gross policy of institutionalised discrimination on 50:50 recruitment (incidentally the ONLY piece of legislative discrimination in the history of Northern Ireland), 71% of existing PSNI personnel wore the proud uniform of the Royal Ulster Constabulary.  That means the expertise which existed at a time when the RUC was the front line against republican violent insurrection is still, thankfully, very much in place.


What is also of interest are the figures relating to the locations of previous experience for PSNI officers.  Four have served in Hong Kong; eight have served in other parts of the Commonwealth (Australia, New Zealand, etc.) and a number have served in other forces across the country – from Strathclyde to Sussex.  53 PSNI officers once held a Royal Military Police warrant card.


So what of the Irish influx?  Ireland is the only country that shares a land border with the United Kingdom.  The SDLP argued petulantly for the right of Garda officers to be allowed to serve in the PSNI.  So how many have ventured across the border to take advantage of a better salary in a newly ‘peaceful’ province?  I’ll tell you: ONE!!  I think the SDLP thought that cross-border recruitment would dilute the force and make it less British.  So much for another plank of separatist thinking.  Have you noticed that nationalist aspirations and reality never understand the concept of teamwork!?
