Just consider this if you will.
PUNISHING criminals is no longer a purpose of prisons, an alarming new mission statement for the UK jails says.
Instead they are defined as places to reform and rehabilitate prisoners so they are ready for life outside – as well as to protect the public from offenders.
This is the final triumph for liberals. They have now managed to remove the only real point of prison, The nonsensical idea that rehabilitation is the core aim of a penal sentence is confounded by the reality that repeat offending has never been higher as convicts LAUGH at our enfeebled weak and now hollowed out justice system. If soft justice is the only justice, is it worth even having?

So Trump drops a massive bomb in an obscure part of Afghanistan to allegedly kill 36 Islamic Jihadists. Seems a bit excessive to only harvest 36 of these killers. There are parts of Paris, Brussels, Stockholm and Berlin that would yield a much better ratio of dead Jihadists.

OK, I have spoken to Harri and he has asked me to remove the ban on “Jude”. Out of respect for Harri I will respect this- up to a point. If “Jude” wants to come back he can re-register and I will accept it.

A C-130 just dropped a MOAB on a series of “ISIS caves” in Afghanistan, according to the Department of Defense (sic). This is obvious nonsense reported by a media which has stopped thinking. They’re paid to cut and paste press releases, not think about the lies in the press releases.
If you want to flatten everything in a mile-wide radius, then a Massive Ordnance Air Blast is just the ticket. It’s an air blast, you see? It detonates a pre-released compound material above ground level. But it’s not a penetrator weapon. So while we can believe that one has just gone bang in Afghanistan, this stuff about an ISIS cave complex is nonsense.

This photograph, of a “bomb crater” at Khan Shaykhtun, was seen around the world in the days following the sarin gas attack:
There’s enough evidence in it to cast reasonable doubt on the idea that the Syrian Air Force dropped sarin bombs. Even an idiot on ATW can see that the crater is rather small and that what looks like a deformed rocket motor is lying in it, next to the artfully placed skull and crossbones. That last is pure Drop the Dead Donkey.
How very interesting then that Theodore A. Postel, Professor of Science, Technology, and International Security at MIT, has reviewed the White House dossier on the incident and declared it “an obviously false, misleading, and amateurish intelligence report”. (14-page pdf here.) On that one photo alone he concludes that a 122 mm section of rocket tube was the carrying agent, and that the crater was caused by an explosive device placed above it. This was no attack from the air.
He goes into many aspects of the White House report and methodically takes it apart. Yet again, we have a dodgy dossier put out – unquestioned by the media – to sell us war. We’ve seen this one before.

Jews can be so touchy. They need to calm down.
Sean Spicer flubbed a comment about Hitler and chemical weapons. He clearly and obviously meant that German Armed Forces never used chemical weapons during WW2, on the battlefield. As far as I’m aware this is a correct statement. While in the spotlight, and with “battlefield” in mind, he made a less than precise statement.
Cue outrage. The Director of the Anne Frank Centre has particularly wet his knickers. Some bloke called Yad Vashem (calm down!) thinks that Spicer should be taken out and re-educated, and Haaretz describes the comment as “a crime”.
And this is exactly the reaction I expected, because it’s the overwrought, hysterical reaction we see time and again when Jewish sensibilities might, in some way, have not been completely respected.

“Tory voter ID plan risks denying millions the vote”, says Labour’s
You can see why the commies are worried. A voter ID system will deny hundreds of thousands of Labour voters the chance to have their say. Granted they’re all dead or made up Pakistani wives, but Labour’s relying on the scam.
What is it with Left Wing parties and dodgy voter rolls? It’s as if they don’t want only actual voters being allowed to vote.
And it gets worse (or better, if you like). The Boundaries Commission is redrawing constituency boundaries, something which is long overdue. The current boundaries strongly favour Labour MPs. Having them drawn a bit more fairly is bound to have them squealing again.
At this rate Labour will be down to single poll figures by the next General Election.

Seeing as how we post on the “Swedish fightback” created such a stir here on ATW (Sarcasm alert) I thought I would follow up with the latest Swedish thinking about how to deal with Islamic terrorism. Yesterday, as you may recall, I recounted the idea that a prominent mainstream Swedish journalist thought that banning cars might be a good idea. What I did not realise was her level of thinking went even deeper…consider THIS if you will.
“Cars are driven largely by men so by giving a lot of space to cars; we’re giving a lot of space to men — at the expense of women,” Karolina Skog explained.
Now I see. It’s the damned patriarchy! Of course it is. By banning MEN and cars, then Sweden will be safe.
You could almost weep if you had enough spare tears,

This is what “diversity” means…
….it is essentially a doctrine about replacing the host community.
I utterly oppose it.
