MISLEAD ON PORPOISE?

By ATWadmin On January 11th, 2007 at 8:20 am

harbour porpoise.jpgExcellent post here over on Bishop Hill on the increasing hysterical claims about the alleged devastating effects of global warming.

Lots of media outlets are reporting a scientist who is claiming that harbour porpoises are threatened by starvation because of global warming. Changes in sea temperature are causing a reduction in the population of sand eels, apparently, so there’s not enough for them to eat….

 

Bishop Hill provides an alternative explanation you might want to consider….

ANOTHER PRO-TERRORISM JAMBOREE….

By ATWadmin On January 11th, 2007 at 8:13 am

un handout.jpgReaders may recall the absolute disgrace that was the UN’s September 2001 "World Conference against Racism." Presided over by former Irish President and putative war criminal Mary Robinson, I attach an image of material handed out at that unspeakable anti-Semitic pro-terrorism love. Well, guess what? Yip – the UN is planning on a repeat!  The rest is your guess….

AFTER THE DELUGE….

“MANCHESTER, England — In this gritty northern city once famous for its textile exports, two bus companies have had their operating licenses suspended for employing Polish drivers who cannot read English road signs. In the Romanian capital of Bucharest, a new bus station opened this week to cater for yet more people keen to travel to Eastern Europe’s favorite destination….”


 


The above is a brief excerpt from a rather excellent article by Graham Lees over on World Politics Watch….it neatly outlines the struggle of the United Kingdom to cope with the rampant immigration that has paralleled Nulabour’s period in power.


As Graham puts it, Critics argue that the country’s infrastructure and social fabric is being undermined by the biggest wave of immigration since the Roman legions arrived over 2,000 years ago.”   It’s not just critics, Graham, it’s anyone with  half a brain (thus ruling out the MSM)!

A pretty successful attempt by the French at self mockery (So Paris Campaign) 

And better still..as pointed out here

‘Beginners might pick up body language tips from  Jacques Chirac’s New Year’s Eve television address . With the sound down, the President’s oscillating shoulders, jutting chin and flapping hands is a master class in the drawn-out shrug’.

(Text reads (as it may be too small) ‘Bof –  the Gallic Shrug – use it to deny knowledge agreement or responsibility – 1. stick out lower lip 2. raise your eyebrows and shoulders simultaneously)

Neo Con

By ATWadmin On January 10th, 2007 at 4:43 pm

….Neocon has become the ultimate term of political abuse, a description of an alien idea foisted on an unwary nation by hardline conservatives…it is thought to be a doctrine of the Right.  It isn’t. It is a critique of the Left. And the difference is important.  There is nothing ‘neo’ and certainly nothing conservative about it.

US foreign policy has almost always been a liberal foreign policy. And if this is right, it means that the policy advocated by neocons will long survive their own departure from the scene….

(Well let’s hope so)

Daniel Finkelstein writing about sociologist and political scientist Seymour Martin Lipset who died last week aged was 84.

His name is unknown to almost everybody in this country. Not so the political grouping of which he was a founder member. The small group of Trotskyites with whom Lipset associated when he was a student at City College in New York grew up to become known as the neocons. Lipset’s contribution to their thinking was critical.

iT’S A No Brainer

Wow, what a choice!  Have devolution restored and see 4 ministers in an 11-minister executive committed to the destruction of the Union, whilst collecting vast sums of public money to steward 5 ministries surplus to requirements;

OR,

have a continuation of Direct Rule without terrorist involvement and see public money cut from wasteful government and ploughed back into something more worthwhile. 

AND THEY SAY ULSTER’S BETTER OFF WITH DEVOLUTION?

Touching the Void

By ATWadmin On January 10th, 2007 at 10:50 am

Tony, our ‘esteemed’ leader and self-proclaimed admirer of insurrectionist Oirish terrorism, will allegedly set out today the ‘distinct’ roles of MI5 and the PSNI in Northern Ireland.  Insurrectionists (the IRA and the SDLP, on either side of a wafer-thin divide) want the latter to be a cavalcade of uniformed ‘do-gooders’, dedicating to putting civic metaphorical sticking plasters on recalcitrant young soap-dodgers.  As for MI5, there’s little they can do about that!  A State preparing to constitutionally abandon a part of its territory does not go around building £20 million headquarters for its national defence intelligence arm.  Just thought I’d make that point crystal clear to the ‘2016’ and ‘2050’ brigades who, whilst infesting Slugger, have the wit not to spout their demographic armageddons on here.

Blair will do the politician’s trick in another effort to woo terrorists on to the Policing Board.  If he is honest about the role and capacity of MI5, all well and good.  However, if he makes promises he can’t keep by suggesting the PSNI and MI5 will be entirely separate with no cross-over operations whatsoever, he will do nothing other than fool IRA trolls and anger pro-Union democrats.  For there is no way a British intelligence agency will allow its operational role in defending the United Kingdom be hampered by the exigencies of insurrectionist appeasement.

For example, the year is 2012.  MI5 has just received information that an Islamic terrorist has crossed the border from the Republic and is now hiding out in a village just outside Belfast.  Undercover operatives have informed the HQ at Palace Barracks that there is a plot afoot to detonate a bomb during the London Olympics.  The reason Northern Ireland has been chosen is that the potential terrorists can travel via an relatively unguarded route over land from Stranraer to the capital.  MI5 asks officers of the PSNI to install a wire-tap.  Do republicans honestly believe the police will say ‘sorry guv,nor, nowt to do with us.  We’re only involved in ‘civic’ policing.  You’ll have to whistle for your wire-tap’?  What a load of bullshit of unimaginable tonnage!!  The police are there to, inter alia, defend the integrity of the State; the function of MI5 is to do the same for more significant threats.  If Provo luvvies believe their roles are not, and will not be, cross-cutting than they’re bigger eejits than even I gave them credit for.

UPDATE: 11.25 From Blair’s statement to Parliament.

All necessary interaction between the Security Service and the PSNI, for example in response to the threat of international terrorism, will, as directed by the Chief Constable, by way of liaison. No police officers will be seconded to or under the control of the Security Service….Policing is the responsibility solely of the PSNI. The Security Service will have no role whatsoever in civic policing.’

That’s the legal and constitutional subtlty, folks!  Insurrectionists define ‘civic’ policing as the role and raison d’etre of the entire organisation.  Blair says ‘civic’ pertains to mainstream roles which are not under the control of the Security Service.  In other words, the PSNI will operate on the same basis as every other force in the United Kingdom.  Liaison with be between the Chief Constable, working on behalf of his HQ officers, and MI5, thus ensuring political influence is kept away from our intelligence services.

On This Day…10.01

BLACKHAWK UP….

By ATWadmin On January 10th, 2007 at 9:33 am

Pleased to see that US attack helicopters have launched fresh air strikes on Tuesday in southern Somalia, targeting the suspected command centre of Al-Qaeda militants. This raid comes a day after an AC-130 gunship hit at least two villages believed to be hideouts, killing "many" people, officials said. The attack, by at least two helicopters, "was aimed at destroying the command and control facility of the terrorists," the Defence Ministry official told AFP. "Somali troops and Ethiopian forces will go to the area."

Naturally, the MSM rush to condemn this commendable action against these cowardly Jihadists. The US is RIGHT to go after these fleeing Islamists and facilitate their early entry to paradise, or to hell.

WHY IS MY DAD IN PRISON?

By ATWadmin On January 10th, 2007 at 9:22 am

Did you read this drivel in the MSM today about Tony Blair being "under intense pressure to secure the release of British residents from the Guantanamo Bay detention camp last night after the son of one of the detainees asked the prime minister: "Why is my dad in prison?" " 

A so-called "heart-rending" (Chortle) letter to Mr Blair from 10-year-old Anas el-Banna was released yesterday to mark the 5th anniversary this week of the opening of the camp on the island of Cuba.

With all due respect to Anas, your Dad is in prison because he is suspected of being a Jihadist or of giving support to Jihadists. Prison is the very best place for such a man. It’s as simple as that – and the MSM should be shamed for giving credence to such, literally, childish nonsense. Naturally any stick will be used to beat up the US for interning terrorists, instead of doing the decent liberal thing of setting them free, paying them compensation, and apologising to them for not allowing them to kill our soldiers.
