I am announcing, with suitable gravity, a brand new Charity, and I am in the process of registering same with the Charity Commissioners.
We shall be raising funds, and aiming, in the first year, at a target of ten million pounds. The aims of this new Charity?
It will be to provide a great many more suitable candidates with suitable reservations to act as this deserving family has already done so!
I predict great things for the new Charity which shall be named, ‘Go Thou, and do likewise‘

On July 20th John Kerry will raise the American Flag over an Embassy in Havana Cuba. According to Obama the policies of the last 54 years have been wrong, so he will change that and do it his way. (just announced)
I am sure that with President Obama’s record of Success this to will work out just fine.

Back to the magnificent Four for another post!
The four UK children’s commissioners have joined forces to urge the Government to halt its programme of benefit cuts to prevent more young people being pushed into poverty. The commissioners for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland said child poverty rates across the UK were “unacceptably high” and that there had been a failure to protect those from the most disadvantaged backgrounds.
These left wing poverty hustlers seem to have overlooked the FACT that the people of the UK have elected a government which has a clear MANDATE to impose further Welfare Cuts. Let’s consider who elected these four children’s commissioners….that’s right ..no one. Quangocrats with leftist agendas seeking to subvert the will of the people.
The truth is that we have no child poverty in the UK. All we have is the fictional invention of relative poverty. (60% of the median income) and that is meaningless. If you want to see REAL poverty, try some african countries where kids eat dirt but spare me the contrived inanities of these four clowns.

How often have you heard our political leaders insist that only a tiny minority of Muslims support the Jihad? Well, I am afraid reality rather confounds this utopian delusion…
THE Islamic State terror group is supported by more than 42million Muslims, a new report has warned. Ryan Mauro of the Clarion Project, which carried out the research, warned that “ISIS is only a fraction of what it could potentially become”.
He said: “If we don’t act quickly, this is still going to grow – and what we’re looking at today is going to look like the good old days compared to the future.” More than 8.5million people view ISIS positively, and around 42million view them somewhat positively, according to the data.

Let’s get it clear. It is WRONG to hurt your child in any way. But smacking them can be the right thing to do and so I find this latest attempt to hijack the role of the parent pretty repulsive.
The UK will be breaking international law unless smacking is completely banned, Britain’s four official children’s commissioners have insisted. In a report submitted to the United Nations, the four commissioners – representing England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland – are demanding an “immediate” repeal of all laws allowing parents to deliberately hurt their children. The Government must also teach parents who smack alternative “non-violent forms of child rearing and behaviour management”, they add.
Get that? They are lobbying to gain control over parents so that any parent whose behaviour THEY disapprove of must go through “re-education” As readers know, I have two children, now both grown up. During their formative years, when they behaved badly, they were smacked. This was a very rare event and they were both very well behaved children 99.9% of the time and I am proud of them. However I believe PART of the reason that smacking children in the right circumstances is to ensure that they DO become model citizens. These “Children Commissioners” are an Orwellian creation and they should all be sacked, not smacked.

Well, it has happened. To no-ones great surprise, Greece has become the worlds first “wealthy” country to default on an IMF loan, following in the illustrious footsteps of the likes of Zimbabwe and Cuba. Well done to the EU – you sure know how to bring about transformation!
Greece has missed the deadline for a €1.5bn (£1.1bn) payment to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), hours after eurozone ministers refused to extend its bailout. But the ministers say they will discuss a last-minute request from Greece for a new two-year bailout on Wednesday.
Greece is the first advanced country to fail to repay a loan to the IMF and is now formally in arrears. There are fears that this could put Greece at risk of leaving the euro.
Greece should not look upon leaving the Euro “as a risk” – remaining in it is the risk! Yet the Greek people are mostly sheep who have voted in a Government that simultaneously is pledged to remaining IN the Eurozone whilst refusing to conform to the economic rules of it!

The say he’s going to just eat the competition…… and he just might. If he comes at you wearing a bib RUN!
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie announced he’s running for President today, mind you this man couldn’t run if his life depended on it. He’s still going to give it a go. I have nothing nice to say about the Governor, he’s a corrupt obnoxious ass. Nowhere except in NJ could he hold office especially as a Republican.
He’s anti-gun, pro-amnesty, he appointed a Radical Islamist as a Judge, and those are just the Tip of Iceberg Christie. This delusional bag of wind may deliver a few laughs, but he certainly won’t deliver votes.

My aching sides!
The Greek government has requested a new bailout deal from the eurozone, just hours before it must repay €1.6bn (£1.1bn) to the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Greece is asking for a new two-year €29.1bn aid deal from a bailout mechanism for eurozone countries.
Eurozone finance ministers discussed the Greek offer in a teleconference on Tuesday evening, but made no decision. If it fails to make the IMF payment, Greece could risk leaving the euro.
To summarise. Greece can’t afford to pay back its bail-out so the answer is a new bail out. 11PM approaches ….tick tock…

It’s a funny old world. According to media reports, ISIS has “sunk even lower” for beheading two women for sorcery in Syria. Yeah, it’s shocking stuff yet again from the worst people in the world.
Except that they’re Abdul-come-latelies to this. Saudi Arabia beheaded a woman for sorcery in 2011, and when the king who presided over it died, Prince Charles and the PM went to his funeral while flags were lowered to half mast in London.
I really can’t see the difference between ISIS and Riyadh, except for Western governments and defence contractors being on very good terms with the latter. If ISIS sticks it out for long enough it’s certain to be rehabilitated. In fact the more you look at them, the more ISIS and Riyadh are one and the same.
The government has just published its definition of “extremism”. Apparently opposition to democracy can mark you out as an extremist, which is bad news for me as well thousands of muslim ISIS fans out there. And Europhiles of course, along with our friends in Riyadh.
Nicky Morgan, a dull-witted minister (but I repeat myself) today said that homophobia may be a sign of extremism. I would note that the BBC manages a whole report without once mentioning muslims or Islam, but I’m not so sure any more if ministers have them in mind with these announcements.
So homophobes are in the frame too, which presumably didn’t stop Prince Charles and the PM from chumming up with the Saudi bigwigs at that funeral. Maybe Nicky Morgan should investigate herself, because she twice voted against gay marriage.
In the end it looks like we’re all extremists.

Interesting article from Victor Hanson Davis here…
“One cannot today buy Confederate flags online, but one can easily purchase Nazi insignia of the sort that flew over Auschwitz or the hammer-and-sickle Communist banner that represented the Great Famine, forced collectivization, and various cultural revolutions that led to 100 million slaughtered or starved to death in the 20th century. One can argue that the slave-owner Robert E. Lee fought to perpetuate human bondage, but Lee never took delight in personally executing without trial his ideological enemies, in the manner of the psychopathic, pistol-toting Che Guevara, whose hip portraiture adorns all too many campus dorm rooms. “
Should Al Gore give one of his trademark teary public confessions and, in vein-bulging angst, apologize to blacks for misrepresenting his senator father’s racist votes against civil-rights legislation? Should Bill Clinton join Gore on the podium to feel our pain and say he is sorry that regional Clinton–Gore campaign affiliates often plastered “Clinton–Gore ’92” on the Confederate battle flag in an effort to get out the supposed redneck vote? Will Hillary Clinton join in too and apologize for her 2008 declaration — delivered during her heated, racialized primary struggle with Barack Obama — that the polls showed “how Sen. Obama’s support among working, hard-working Americans, white Americans, is weakening again, and how whites in both states [Indiana and North Carolina, where primaries had just been held] who had not completed college were supporting me.”
