A GOOD WEEK TO BURY BAD NEWS

By Pete Moore On September 5th, 2019 at 7:04 pm

Mark Carney let slip this pearler while everyone’s looking elsewhere –

The bad news is all Carney’s, who has never been right about anything. Of course their prediction were wrong. They are always wrong.

F the French…….

PARIS/DUBAI (Reuters) – France has proposed offering Iran about $15 billion in credit lines until year-end if Tehran comes fully back into compliance with its 2015 nuclear deal, a move that hinges on Washington not blocking it, Western and Iranian sources said.

as we laugh at the frogs we made this announcement…….

U.S. announces new Iran sanctions, offers $15 million reward for information on illegal arms shipping network and this is Trumps quote….

“I very much appreciate President Macron’s involvement but we’re not dealing through President Macron. We’re dealing with people directly,” Trump said. “They said until we do certain other things, like drop sanctions, and that’s not happening, that won’t be happening.”

So France can do their surrender monkey dance taking it’s customary role as the servient supporter of loons in search of Zeolite Purity…. the Vichy just can’t help themselves….

No thanks Macron, but we do appreciate the laugh.

BUT WHAT DO THE GROWN UPS OFFER?

By Pete Moore On September 4th, 2019 at 7:47 pm

I know that Leavers are unreasonable, thinking that we could ever be a sovereign, independent and self-governing country, just like most of the world. What got into our minds?

Let’s allow our betters to decide instead. We, the people, ought to know our place. Isn’t that so, Comrades? Richard Burgon is the Shadow Lord Chancellor and an architect of Labour’s policy with regards to the EU. He’s just the kind of intellectual giant we can safely entrust with stewardship of the country. This is what Labour would do. Give it a watch –

Yep, you heard that right.

Labour would win a General Election on a platform to remain in the EU. Then it would negotiate a leave deal with the EU. Then it would campaign against that leave deal in yet another referendum.

Apparently these are the grown ups.

“THE GROWN UPS”

By Pete Moore On September 4th, 2019 at 6:53 pm

Parliament will not allow the UK to leave the EU without a withdrawal treaty. (The truth is that this parliament will not allow the UK to leave at all, under any circumstances.)

Parliament three times rejected a deal which is 99 per cent Remain. May’s withdrawal treaty is so bad it would be better to simply remain.

This evening it will remove the government’s constitutional right to govern and the Prime Minister’s prerogative powers to negotiate treaties.

It will place itself under the suzerainty of the EU.

It refuses to allow a General Election, thereby perpetuating itself and the EU’s suzerain control of the UK’s fate.

Apparently these geniuses are the grown ups we need to listen to.

The worst constitutional outrage of all is for MPs to refuse a dissolution, keeping in place a government they have calculatedly undermined, for the sole purpose of undoing a referendum result they had promised to uphold.

A way of life was ended

September 4, 1886: Apache Chief Geronimo Is Last Warrior to Surrender. Geronimo was born in 1829 and grew up in what is present-day Arizona and Mexico. His tribe, the Chiricahua Apaches, clashed with non-Indian settlers trying to take their land. In 1858, Geronimo’s family was murdered by Mexicans. Apache leader Goyalkla, or as he’s known to non-Native Americans, Geronimo, formally surrenders after the US Army 4th Cavalry relentlessly pursues him and his band of warriors throughout southern Arizona. Geronimo will be the last Native American war chief to officially lay down arms.

The Native Americans were amazing a people of no modern technology but the best guerilla fighters the world has ever seen. It took us over 100yrs to defeat them including Custer running for President on a platform of wiping them off the face of the earth…. Custer of course was a Democrat who despised President Grant who he viewed as a drunkin idiot.

But Geronimo’s surrender was the end for the American Indian the end of a way of life. Technology triumphed of Naturalism and the naturalists were the better fighters,

No, Prime Minister

By Mahons On September 4th, 2019 at 1:26 pm

It would be funny if it wasnt serious. A British Prime Minister smacked around like a red headed stepchild because he thought he could will a divided Parliament his way. Leadership is not being the loudest person in the room, though sometimes people mistake it for that. It involves persuasion. It involves convincing those of a different opinion by reasoning and at times principled compromise. It is not trying to bypass consensus by manipulating the system, even legally. We have too often seen people in power try to win the day’s headlines instead of accomplish what needs to be done for the common good. The Romans loved the circus, but look what happened to them. Whatever the outcome, it is time for the serious people to come forward.

VIKTOR ORBAN IS ALWAYS RIGHT

Mass immigration to the West, from Third World dumps, is not acceptable and will never be accepted. It brings crime and terror, it is jeopardising our way of life and our Christian heritage.

This is a real leader –

THE REAL COUP IS TONIGHT

By Pete Moore On September 3rd, 2019 at 6:52 pm

This evening the Commons (probably) will vote to take control of parliamentary business. Tomorrow it will (probably) vote to oblige the Prime Minister to ask for yet another extension, the length of that extension and attached conditions being whatever the EU decides.

Allow me to explain the simple business of Parliament. The government (executive) proposes and governs in accordance with its prerogative powers. Parliament advises, consents and amends. That is the constitutional relationship. Parliament has no right to usurp the prerogative powers of the executive, but the corrupt Speaker has long been at the forefront of crushing our vote.

There is no humiliation which this politically and morally bankrupt Parliament will not heap on our country. What they will impose on the Prime Minister is literally an order of total, abject surrender. Having demanded that Parliament have its say on Brexit (as if the last three years never happened), they are about to give up all say to the EU. It has no right to quash or take away prerogative powers from the government and hand them to the EU, but that is what they will do. That is the real coup.

The Prime Minister, to his credit, has clearly said that there are no circumstances in which he will ask for a surrender. He simply will not do it. So he’s expected to call for a General Election, but that will require a two-thirds majority in the Commons. Labour has spent the last three years calling for a General Election. Remainers have been squealing that the Prime Minister has no electoral mandate. But suddenly they’re all less keen on a General Election, because they are spineless and corrupt.

This is our country. It belongs to the sovereign people, not a parliament of liars and criminals who have been crystal clear, in their actions, that they will simply not allow our country to be sovereign, independent and self-governing.

But having set themselves against the people they will lose. There is a seething rage across the country. That General Election will come and they will be wiped out.

 

Life’s still hard in Kentucky

The life of Appalachian coal miners has always been very hard. Then, now.

There were glimmers of hope in 2016, when politicians spoke of a coal industry revival. It was a false promise. Power companies continue to convert to natural gas. Export prices are low.

The long term indicators are negative.Annual U.S. coal production is expected to drop from 711 million tons to less than 600 million tons during the next five years, said Gregory Marmon, a principal coal analyst at global consulting firm Wood Mackenzie ( the failing Washington Post )

In Cumberland County, the nonunion coal miners at Blackjewel, earned $20 to $30 an hour, very good money there. But Blackjewel declared bankruptcy a few months ago. The last paychecks of the miners either bounced or never arrived.

There is $1 million dollars of already-mined coal at the mine site, but the miners have blockaded the train tracks. They’ll let the coal be hauled out the minute that they get paid.

You’d think that the paychecks of blue collar workers would come first in such a bankruptcy proceeding, but apparently that’s not true.

What’s interesting here is most all these men probably voted for Trump in the election. They’re not exactly a bunch of latte sipping lefties.

Demanding to be paid for your work isn’t such an unfair request.

These guys are standing guard at the mine right now.

God bless these men and their families on this Labor Day.
