Fountains of Wayne

By Mahons On January 7th, 2017 at 10:34 pm

Wayne Rooney has got it going on.  He has matched Charlton’s Man United Goal record.  Not any easy feat in that most important game of the feet, football. Best, Keane, Charlton and some others may hold a dealer place in the hearts of Man’s supporters, but Rooney deserves his seat at their Olympus.  It isn’t easy scoring when the other team turns it’s focus on dealing with you game after game, season after season.  He has been doing it since he was a teenager.  Well done Sir.

LET’S CELEBRATE MISS HELSINKI 2017

By Pete Moore On January 7th, 2017 at 8:11 pm

NOTHING suggests Finnish quite like “Sephora Ikalaba”.

We’re now supposed to believe that an African immigrant is the hottest chick in Helsinki. You’re a knuckle-dragging racist if you don’t!

What’s going on, of course, is that everything is political to the Left, and the culture war is forever being fought. Nothing is permitted to remain white – no people, no country, no culture. What is ours must be diluted away. While everything ethnic and alien is elevated, “whiteness” itself is being destroyed.

ON LBJ’S GRANDCHILDREN

By Pete Moore On January 7th, 2017 at 7:34 pm

A LIBERAL trope has it that the lot of black Americans is “a legacy of slavery”. They love that one, and it’s nonsense of course. Economic and social indicators for black Americans improved enormously in the mid-20th Century, prior to civil rights laws and the welfare state. Thomas Sowell briefly describes it –

But LBJ then destroyed this progress with his Great Society programmes. A great chunk of them boiled down to paying single mothers with low skills to have more children. This incentivised fathers to disappear; smashing the family nucleus would keep the welfare money rolling in. The government would look after everything and everyone instead, including education, which it has also destroyed. We’ve seen the same thing here.

WHITHER THE ETHIOPIAN SPICE GIRLS?

By Pete Moore On January 7th, 2017 at 6:38 pm

“Austerity”

THERE is some news, so incredible, that you really have to live in the UK to believe that our governing class and bureaucrats can be so insane. The government has finally confirmed that an Ethiopian girl band, dubbed “the Ethiopian Spice Girls” will no longer receive UK international aid money.

That’s our money of course, because governments don’t have money of their own. The plug has been pulled on the funding only because we found out of course , but in the last year they’ve been given £5.2million. When that sinks in, you realise that nothing is too insane for government, literally nothing.

TRUMP IS SUCH A PEACENIK

By Pete Moore On January 7th, 2017 at 6:25 pm

REPORTS the BBC:

US President-elect Donald Trump has posted a series of tweets condemning those who oppose good relations with Russia as “‘stupid’ people, or fools”.

Mr Trump vowed to work with Russia “to solve some of the many… pressing problems and issues of the WORLD!”

War, what is it good for? Only making liberals feel good, given recent history. They’ll bomb a country to pieces on any pretext, any dodgy dossier. Despite the catastrophic outcome of every use of NATO force by these liberal interventionists, they are never put off because they never learn. They never learn because they are incapable of reconciling ideology and arrogance with the actuality of the world around them.

We really are living in extraordinary times. The Dems have just fielded a presidential candidate who is clearly deranged, verifiably a puppet of Salafist paymasters and who campaigned, in part, on conflict with Russia. Having lost, her supporters have lined up totally behind Deep State – the unelected National Security State – attempts to overturn the election.

But we’re supposed to believe that it’s the Republican, who wants decent relations with Russia, who is the nutcase.

ATW FRIDAY NIGHT JUKEBOX

By Pete Moore On January 6th, 2017 at 8:45 pm

Because Friday night is Music Night

It seems that Bob Dylan might be able to sing after all, a bit. Pretty Saro is an early 18th-Century English folk song which Dylan picked up. It seems he recorded this a long time ago and kept it under wraps until recently. That’s a shame, I think, because it’s really good. The images making up the video are intriguing too, looking like they’re filled with stories.

As always, have a great weekend and feel free to share whatever you like –

THE NEW DUBLINERS

By Pete Moore On January 6th, 2017 at 7:04 pm

BOXING DAY in Dublin sounded fun. The Independent reports that 250 “youths”, in gangs, invaded Henry Street and went on “an orgy of violence”. Shoppers and passers-by were punched. Knives were pulled. We read that it’s something of a regular event actually, with these gangs coming in on weekends and holidays.

You have to go elsewhere to read that the 250 “youths” are something called “African Irish”, whatever that is.

Then you go back to the Independent’s story, you read the comments, and it seems to be true. Dublin is being gloriously enriched by these African Irish gangs, with their knives, who viciously punch the young and the old on Dublin’s streets. What a lucky town it is. What a beautiful, enriched future Ireland has in store.

 

LEAVE OF ABSENCE

By David Vance On January 6th, 2017 at 5:29 pm

In case you’re wondering why I haven’t been around that much this past week it’s because things have been hectic as we approach the wedding of our son. It’s a big moment for my family I can tell you and I will return early next week when celebrations are completed!

Another Brick In The Wall

By Mahons On January 6th, 2017 at 3:24 pm

The President-elect is very upset with what he tweets is the dishonest media.  Apparently they had the effrontery to publish that the U.S. and not Mexico will be paying for his Great Wall.  The Dear Tweeter often gets angry when people point out discrepancies in his statements.  Despite campaign insistence that Mexico would pay for it to be built he has now pivoted to they will pay later.  Some unknown price.  At some unknown date.

Imagine receiving an invoice in the mail for something you didn’t order.

Apparently we are paying for it now for “speed” purposes.  As someone once said, Trump is not a dumb man.  He is a smart man with a great understanding of what dumb people want.

LBJ’s GRANDCHILDREN

By Pete Moore On January 5th, 2017 at 6:57 pm

WILL Obama disavow this?

Chicago police are investigating a video appearing to show a man tied up and assaulted while attackers shout ‘fuck Donald Trump’ and ‘fuck white people’

The attackers are black of course, and tortured a young white man, who apparently has mental problems, for a couple of days. I heard a BBC News report about this at lunchtime. It even featured a snippet of a police news conference on the incident, and not once did the BBC mention any race or Donald Trump.

You can bet that if four Trump supporters had tortured a black, broadcasting it live, that we’d now all about it. We’d know all about it, round the clock, for the next fifty years.
