THEY finally got there. Decades of “pay your taxes” have suddenly morphed into “Use tax disobedience to create a fairer society”.

Welcome to the world of tax realism, commies.

New York Decides It

By Phantom On April 20th, 2016 at 12:52 pm


Last night’s NY primary saw big wins for Bill Clinton’s wife and for the self made man who was born a millionaire.

This nearly decides it.

Sanders leads a genuine social justice / free stuff / let’s shoot every third banker movement, but Hillary has obtained more votes, and the insider-friendly superdelegate system has tilted the table completely her way.

A lot of Bernie Democrats will have a very hard time casting a vote for the corrupt sneak that will lead the Democrats.

Ted Cruz was a massive loser last night. He is the Princeton mastermind ( just ask him ) who trashed Trump for having ” New York Values “, and then wound up with less than 15% of the primary vote in New York. What a surprise. Memo to Cruz: if you want to be elected president of this country, don’t trash any of our fifty states. A much smarter campaigner would have said that differently. Stick a fork in this Canadian, he’s done.

Trump is in good shape as the primaries move to Pennsylvania and California. He may not get the magic number, but he’ll have way more than anyone else. They can’t give it to anyone else now.

Trump looked tired last night. His speech was the usual bag of complaints and bragging. He needs to start acting like an optimistic Reagan type, a coalition builder. I don’t know if he has it in him.

It’s evening in America. You can have any president you want, so long as it’s Trump or Clinton.

Good, good, good. Reports the BBC:

Switzerland has suspended the citizenship process for the family of two teenage Muslim brothers who refused to shake hands with female teachers.

The brothers aged 14 and 15 said physical contact with women who were not family members was against their faith.

More, much more of this please.

I once had to review a similar case in an old job. A male colleague offered his hand to shake a (muslim) woman’s hand, also an employee. She declined, for religious reasons. He said a few things which she didn’t appreciate and complained, and it ended up on my desk.

It didn’t take long. I exonerated him and gave her a warning. The board wasn’t expecting that outcome, but they agreed that religious bigotry and superstitions were best kept outside the worklpace, and that when someone offers their hand in this country you reciprocate. It’s the British way, the kind of soft social pressures which allow us to rub along. The Swiss might be right in keeping it outside of their country too. I hope they kick the arrogant family back to the primitive hole they came from.

So you see where life outside the EU gets you, peons? There’s a danger you might not let inferior cultures have their arrogant way.

Well then, I am off to Merkel’s new Islamic Republic of Germany tomorrow morning – very early! Zzzzzz. Here’s the spot I am going to until Saturday. Can you identify it? Here’s a clue, it’s bad, bad. Behave yourselves in my absence and for those who follow me on social media you can still catch up with my tweets via the link on the site! I shall report back from what is left of Germany!


California Still Got It

For most of last week, I was in San Diego for a big industry conference.

It was no vacation – it was ten meetings a day for the most part. But there was some off time on Saturday and Sunday, in one of the nicest big cities in America.

On Saturday, I met up with some of my British cronies at the famous Toronado Bar.

San Diego is a hotbed of quality beer. It may be the best beer town in the US. Some of the brews I normally seek out, from the Stone and Ballast Point breweries, are from there.

Sunday, I went on a deep sea fishing outing with a bunch of Germans. I managed to watch catch two rockfish while others who actually knew something about fishing didn’t catch any.

Then, nonstop meetings for the next two days.

San Diego is such a pretty city, I would go there on vacation. Beautiful dry weather, nicely restored downtown Gas Lamp district, nice beaches, good quality restaurants and bars everywhere you look, great looking, nice people.

I hear about all the economic and social problems California has, and I know that they are real.

But everywhere I’ve been – San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles, San Francisco, even Sacramento, has so many beautiful places, so many great people. I’ll be back.

More of this please –

Shackleton, Endeavour and Falcon were just some of the names suggested in a public vote to name a £200m polar research ship, but one suggestion has defeated them all – Boaty McBoatface.

The suggestion is the runaway winner of the campaign by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) to name a new state-of-the-art ship.

Actually, it does make you proud. There’s a deep flippancy and irreverence in the British psyche. We see it in comedy and humour, but it manifests itself in many ways. One of them is a dislike for extremes and taking oneself too seriously. Politicians doing such things are always, and quickly, dragged down again. Other peoples have fallen under the spell of authoritarian leaders and movements, whereas I still hold faith that we’d just laugh at a Mussolini jutting his big chin over the balcony’s edge.

Alas, the final decision on the naming of the vessel remains with NERC. Doubtless the Shackleton would be fitting and a reminder of a Great Briton who led on into a Great British disaster. But still, you’d have to be a commie to go against the will of the people.

Two perspectives;

A dire video clip emerged Friday showing two Canadian hostages in a “final urgent appeal” for Ottawa to save them from imminent beheading by their Abu Sayyaf captors.

Calgarian expat John Ridsdel and his fellow Canadian abductee, Robert Hall, both speak directly to the camera with a knife to their throat, in a message clearly intended for the Canadian government — pay the ransom within the next 10 days or we will die.

“We’re told this is the absolute final warning, the final urgent appeal to governments — Philippine, Canadian — and families,” Ridsdel said. “If 300 million (Philippine pesos, or $8.3 million) is not paid for me by 3 p.m. on April 25th, they will behead me.”

The camera then shifts to Hall, who repeats the warning, adding: “My specific appeal is to the Canadian government, who I know has the capacity to get us out of here. I’m wondering what they’re waiting for.”

Two other foreigners who shared the nearly seven-month kidnap ordeal alongside Ridsdel and Hall, a Norwegian man and a Filipino woman, can also be seen on camera. The two-minute clip ends with a masked gunman reiterating the deadline, warning that if it passes unheeded “we will certainly behead one of these four.”

So, what will Trudeau do? Here’s a clue…


I fear the worst. He’ll pay the ransom. And the one after that….and that.

….75million more Muslims given visa free access to the EU?

As you know, the likes of Cameron and Merkel WANT to see Erdogan’s Turkey become an essential part of the European Union. The process is speeding up…

“Not a single voter from the EU’s 28 member states – which have a total population of 508 million – has yet to vote in favour of Turkish membership. But MEPs voted 375 – 133 to back the initiative by President of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades, who asked the Dutch EU Presidency to add Turkish to the bloc’s 24 official languages in order to boost attempts to reach a reunification agreement on the Mediterranean island.

The move, expected to add £25m to the EU’s annual budget, has infuriated critics who last night said it was further proof that Turkey’s accession to the EU was “all but guaranteed”

There is little doubt that Turkey will be brought into the camp and that the direct and inevitable consequence will be an acceleration on the ongoing Islamification of the European continent, directed by its very leaders.
