MANNERS ARE NEVER OUT OF STYLE

By Pete Moore On October 14th, 2017 at 2:50 pm

IT’S been a bad week for wealthy, unkempt, unshaven, big-shot producer slobs with no manners and no end of ways to pollute the culture. It could be that the old fashioned ideal of a gentleman is due a comeback. That’s one revival we would all benefit from.

Its what is known as ‘Freedom of Speech, and of Thought!

The tankard and the figure represent the famous Knights Templar; of Jerusalem, and of Malta and Paris.

Why do I feature these Christian symbols, figures and emblems?

Just for the simple joy of knowing that, if a certain person in Loughborough reads this post, he (or she) will be deeply offended by the very fact that they are published upon my post.

I care not for their reputation, even less for their closeness to Masons, but I do so like the idea of deeply upsetting some pinched-faced clown who thinks he is ‘offended’!

 

Don’t Burn Out , Don’t Rust Either!

By Phantom On October 13th, 2017 at 6:45 pm

The king is gone
But he’s not forgotten
This is the story
Of a Johnny Rotten
It’s better to burn out
Than it is to rust
The king is gone
But he’s not forgotten

It was a great Neil Young song, but a lousy comment. It’s not better to burn out. Dying young when you don’t have to is nothing to aspire to. And rusting away isn’t the only other option .

Bruce Springsteen has lived a rock musician’s life for over 50 years, but has never done drugs. He doesn’t preach about it, but when asked, he’ll say that he saw too many musicians ruined by drugs to ever go one step down that road.

At the age of 68, he’s in killer shape, at the top of his artistic game, doing exactly what he wants to do.

He just opened Springsteen on Broadway which will run five shows a week in a 939 seat theater, through February. No band, just him for the most part, singing slower, stripped down versions of his songs.

The early reviews are very good.

Long may you run.
Long may you run.
Although these changes
have come
With your chrome heart shining
in the sun
Long may you run.

ATW FRIDAY NIGHT JUKEBOX

By Pete Moore On October 13th, 2017 at 6:30 pm

Because Friday night is Music Night

People have been asking: Pete, what’s the best San Fran band that I’ve maybe never heard of? It’s Jellyfish of course, who I quite liked 25 years ago. Always very catchy they were. You’re welcome.

Have fun whatever you’re up to this weekend. As always, feel free to share your top sounds down below –

WELCOME TO LONDON

By Pete Moore On October 13th, 2017 at 5:53 pm

REPORTS The Standard:

16 rapists among hundreds of London sex offenders let off with a caution

Yes, it’s a newspaper and you read the headline correctly.

Figures obtained by the Standard reveal more than 1,100 cautions were given to sex offenders in London, meaning they dodged court and potentially lengthy prison spells. The tally includes 16 cautions for rape, which carries a maximum life imprisonment sentence if convicted in court.

Well done rozzers. Cautions issued, cases closed and it’s doubles all round. And that’s just London.

Isn’t liberalism great?

 

Trump follows the Constitution

By Patrick Van Roy On October 13th, 2017 at 11:29 am

Late last night with a stroke of the Pen, and the use of the Phone President Trump just destroyed both Parties in Congress.

No this is NOT the wonderful News that he lifted the restriction that forbids people in Pennsylvania or New York from being able to buy Insurance from a company in Tennessee or Kentucky. No this is pure joy.

President Obama ILLEGALLY set up subsidies for Insurance Companies involved in Obamacare. Those subsidies were not in the Law. Obama set those up himself, he created Legislation, and Cut Checks on HIS Authority.

According to American Law The President of the United States does NOT have the Authority to do either of those things. ONLY CONGRESS can appropriate and distribute Funds.  In May of 2016 a Federal Judge even ruled against it.

A federal judge on Thursday ruled in favor of House Republicans in their lawsuit against the Obama administration over ObamaCare.

In a major ruling, Judge Rosemary Collyer, said the administration does not have the power to spend money on “cost sharing reduction payments” to insurers without an appropriation from Congress.

ONLY Congress can Appropriate Funds. If Either the Republicans or the Democrats don’t like it…. They can get off their Collective Asses and do their JOB and write it into Law.

Obamacare just got CHOKED !

The Power of the Purse belongs to Congress, NOT the President. The ball is in their court.

So, what else is new?

By Mike Cunningham On October 13th, 2017 at 9:42 am

One of the more distasteful features of the Rotherham Young Girls Abuse by Muslim gangs was the ease with which these Muslims gathered their victims, and brought them together for their depraved activities. They were literally picked up by organised taxis, marshalled and forwarded on to the rape and drug parties from Council-run homes, and also from acquiescent foster-carers. Neither bunch seemed to give much credence to the ‘place of safety’ idea, behind which of course was a compliant and complaisant Council Care system: and of course the Police; who very early on grasped the idea that “They were just slappers; just girls who were out for a good time: and we should not interfere, because that would mean that our Pakistani Muslim friends, with high contacts on the Council, were committing criminal acts. That just cannot be, so we’ll just avert our eyes, strike out the calls for help off the computer logs; and do sweet-F**k-All!”

And now we get a second, even more worrying story coming down the tracks. We hear of over 150-odd Vietnamese kids, trafficked into the UK, rescued by the authorities. WE now learn that they have virtually all disappeared, presumably back into the caring clutches of the criminals who brought them into Britain.

And what does one council state? “But we cannot keep them locked up; we have to win their trust!”

At least 21 have vanished this summer, including 12 from Rochdale. Rochdale borough council has rejected comparisons with the street grooming scandal in 2012.

The North Koreans just tested another Bomb

By Patrick Van Roy On October 12th, 2017 at 10:55 pm

One of the many things the United States is good at is Monitoring the Earth for violations of The Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, commonly known as the Non-Proliferation Treaty or NPT. We do this several ways they fall under a special division of our Air Force.

The Air Force Technical Applications Center, based at Patrick Air Force Base, Fla. is an Air Force surveillance organization assigned to the Air Force Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Agency. Its mission is to monitor nuclear treaties of all applicable signatory countries. This is accomplished via seismic, hydroacoustic and satellite detection systems.
Well Today North Korea had a 2.9 magnitude earthquake in the North Hamgyong province of North Korea. The quake was detected in the same location as previous nuclear tests, 29km north-east of Sungjibaegam. Odds are according to our detection equipment it was another Nuclear Test.  There are subsequent things to be done to confirm the Test, but given the Countries history and the Location of the Magma Displacement it’s a pretty good bet it was a Warhead Underground Test.
The Question is now what will the World’s Response be? The Iranians will cheer they have “Observers” at every North Korean Nuclear Test. The U.S. is cutting slowly cutting off their money sanctioning the Chinese banks that keep the Rogue Nation afloat, but this is a very slow process.
One that our current President has declared ineffective, which for 25 years has been a joke especially when Bill Clinton gave them the equipment along with Pakistanis and the Chinese to get to the point where they now have Nuclear Missiles that can strike anywhere in the World.
I ask you what should be done? The Leader of North Korea has said he will use his Nuclear Weapons on the U.S.
Sanctions have been increased, verbal warnings have been increased, pressure has been applied to China, and still TODAY he tests another Warhead.
The U.S. and British Military are on High Alert. The Brits are even discussing putting the not yet christened AirCraft Carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth into service.
The Time is long past the point of Negotiation. The question seems to be where the Dead should be, Korea or anywhere he decides to hit with his Nukes.

LESSONS FROM JAPAN

By Pete Moore On October 12th, 2017 at 8:43 pm

REPORTS The Economist:

“As crime dries up, Japan’s police hunt for things to do”

The Jap police are bored because the country is so crime-free. The downside is that their fat doughnut-munchers are searching out more and more trivial “crimes”, to keep from being bored. However this can be managed, and the doughnut-munchers can be pensioned off.

No, that’s silly of course.

What Japan really needs is a permanent class of resentful, welfare-addicted immigrants committing violent crime and sowing social discord, eh?

“POLICE CUTS”

By Pete Moore On October 12th, 2017 at 6:51 pm

Nine people a day are being arrested for posting allegedly offensive messages online as police step up their campaign to combat social media hate speech.

More than 3,300 people were detained and questioned last year over so-called trolling on social media and other online forums, a rise of nearly 50 per cent in two years, according to figures obtained by The Times.

Notice how the government and/or the useless police only ever refer to “offensive” or “hate” speech. They never admit to the truth, which is that they hate free speech and those who speak their minds.

Remember, offence is never given, it’s only taken, and that’s a conscious choice. “I’m offended by that” should be met with “So?” That’s all it’s worth. Half of the investigations reported by The Times were dropped. They should all be dropped. Giving offence is not a crime.
