LOCKED AND LOADED BABY!

By Pete Moore On August 11th, 2017 at 5:48 pm

Hmmmmmm

We seem to have a good cop/bad cop routine. Mattis and Tillerson talk diplomacy while the C-in-C mirrors Kim Ding Dong’s bellicosity. You never know, talking Pyongyang’s language might work. Decades of diplomacy have left NK as mad and bad as ever. Clinton went soft and gave them nuclear material. GWB didn’t seem interested. Obama talked soft. The reward was NK inching ever closer to being a nuclear threat.

Then again it might not work. Socialism needs an enemy because it produces only shortages and misery. The peons must therefore be distracted, their anger directed out. Hence always enemies. It’s been capitalists, speculators and kulaks before. For Pyongyang it’s the Yankees. Tens of thousands of US troops in South Korea is a ready-made bogeyman.

Right now NK and the US are led by two men not in the habit of climbing down. East and West could point nuclear weapons at each other during the Cold War because self-preservation ruled. The key problem is that we don’t know if a spark of rationality exists in Pyongyang. So we’ll see, but I have no idea where this is going.

Friday night is Music

By Mike Cunningham On August 11th, 2017 at 4:48 pm

I have always believed that Music, in all its many forms, with its many gifted artists and composers, from pop to jazz, from the Beatles to Al Jolson to Paganini; is there to surprise and delight us.

I hope that this piece will intrigue and enhance your moments of relaxation; as it surely does mine.

Portrait of a Patriot.

I had never read anything published by The Nation until this morning, but I will keep it on my reading list from now on, liberal and left-leaning though it may be. It has just published an article which might be THE most single important document, discussing THE most important letter, during the whole period from when Donald Trump first registered his intent to to run for the Presidency; to the empaneling of the Grand Jury which is supposed to investigate ‘Russiagate’.

 

I made specific reference to the publication of the Letter to the President within my post ‘Decisions, decisions’, and no one seems to have even digested that Letter. But now, prompted by Breitbart’s link, I went to The Nation, and there to read an explosive piece of journalism, from a writer named Patrick Lawrence, who writes and comments upon the whole saga of the alleged ‘hack’ of the DNC server; of the lies, assumptions, false briefings and downright skullduggery which has been brought to bear on the Trump Presidency, and the Trump Administration.

 

Mr. Lawrence states, quite categorically, that ALL the statements, all the assumptions, indeed all the allegations, stem from a statement that the data was ‘assessed’ by experts. That ‘assessment’ was never checked, and grew to ‘possibilities’ and so on; until President Trump was forced to sign a sanctions Bill which crippled his ability to negotiate with Russia.

Read Mr. Lawrence’s work, and then make your own minds up whether his words, and the work of many people who prefer to remain anonymous, are the proof that Russia never came near the DNC server, and all of the allegations; of corruption, indeed of treason, are baseless, groundless, and have been shown to be a pack of lies!

when the wind wouldn’t blow ….Where’s Carter?

At last, a large manufacturing organisation is allowed to speak up on the subject of the need for continuous access to base-load electricity which is not susceptible to either sunshine shining on solar cells; or wind turbines which need wind to turn the blades!

From a heavy user which is absolutely dependent upon a stable steady-frequency electricity supply, read the words of an expert, and then figure out why the greenies /climate change experts /renewable pushers don’t ever mention straight-forward solutions such as coal, or gas, or nuclear as the only reliable base load supplies worth talking about.

The single paragraph, which, for me, caps the whole debate, is :-

I’ve heard people say that the Government should let the markets take care of it: let the market work it out. But the problem is: the Government is already intervening in the market by providing the very substantial subsidies and incentives for these renewable energy projects. Absent these incentives, the renewable projects would not stand up.

SLAVERY “IN EVERY UK TOWN”

By Pete Moore On August 10th, 2017 at 8:00 pm

IT’S no end of enrichment! Reports the BBC

Modern slavery and human trafficking in the UK is “far more prevalent than previously thought,” the National Crime Agency has said.

The NCA said there were more than 300 live policing operations currently, with cases affecting “every large town and city in the country”. The agency estimated that there were tens of thousands of victims.

It said previous estimates of 10,000-13,000 victims in the UK were found to be the “tip of the iceberg”.

Import the Third World, get the Third World. Do read that piece. It might well be true, and if so it’ll curl your toes. To be fair it’s not just primitives, but the Second World too. Thank you Herr Schengen! Look, when I wa growing up we didn’t have slavery and mass Islamo-rape and a growing TB problem. In fact ruddy-cheeked Britishers did a damned good job of stamping out such things wherever we went.

It really is time to pull up the drawbridge. I like foreign food, drink and cars. But there’s an awful lot of crap out there which we need to keep out there.

BUT, POLICE CUTS ..

By Pete Moore On August 10th, 2017 at 7:51 pm

Terror attacks, mass Islamo-rape gangs, acid attacks, stabbings, shootings, you name it – it’s all going on. Good to see the rozzers getting serious then –

Unfortunately Godfrey Elfwick hasn’t been reincarnated. This is an actual police account, blue tick and all. Go on, laugh all you like, but no-one in Britain who’s been paying attention is the slightest bit surprised. “Non-crime” (whatever that means) name calling in the playground is now being investigated the PC PCs.

Do you remember that bloke in here who said that the police long ago abandoned the British people, that it’s now an arm of the PC state, and exists to ruthlessly implement its political diktats? That nutter? He was right, you know.

THE RIGHT WAS RIGHT

By Pete Moore On August 10th, 2017 at 7:25 pm

THE entire Left Wing establishment – in government, the media the police, local authorities, their armies of social workers and charities, the lot of them – they tried to hide the fact that thousands of Pakistani and other muslim men were running organised rape camps, targeting British girls. They allowed them to do it and get away with it. We know this.

Thousands and thousands of British girls were abandoned by them all. They hoped that no-one would notice while they played the Three Wise PC Monkeys. Be certain: everyone involved is as wretched as the primitives who committed the crimes. But we found out. The drip-drip-drip of stories came out, and we were right.

The Right was so right that even the establishment can no longer ignore the catastrophe of Islamic immigration, which they inflicted on British society.

Newcastle sex ring victims suffered ‘profoundly racist crime’, says former CPS chief

Britain must confront the scourge of “profoundly racist” crime exemplified by the Operation Shelter grooming case, a former head of the Crown Prosecution Service has said […]

The Liberal Democrat peer and former Director of Public Prosecutions, told BBC Radio Four’s Today programme there was “a major problem in particular communities” of men viewing young white girls as “trash” and available for sex.

They still trot out the “particular communities” line, like a reluctant alcoholic who cannot finally admit what he is in public. But we know what he means, and he knows it. It’s a small start, but you do not get more PC than a LibDem former CPS director on The Today Programme. Finally, after tens of thousands of young British girls were the victim of the blatantly obvious, after years of decent Britons being labelled “racist” for saying it, they tacitly admit that we were right. McDonald isn’t alone today. The Shadow Minister and Rotherham MP, Sarah Champion, has also given in and said the obvious too.

The Rotherham Labour MP said such acts were happening “time and time and time again”, and both authorities and the media had failed to address the background of the perpetrators.

“There are many, many types of child abuse and there are many types of child exploitation, but the particular gang-related one is predominantly – the prosecutions and convictions we get are predominantly Pakistani men and therefore we have to address this,” she told the BBC’s Today programme.

“If this was people from a particular town across the country, if it was people from a motorbike gang we were doing this, we would recognise this as an indicator and we would deal with it, but we’re just not dealing with this.

“I genuinely think it’s because people are more afraid to be called a racist than they are afraid to be wrong about calling out child abuse.”

It’s almost as if we’re reading back our own words. Hey commies: we’re always right, you’re always wrong. The problem is that when your ideas are tried people get shot, or starve to death, end up in camps and get raped and abused by primitives. We can save ourselves all this grief. You just have to admit that we’re right and that you are catastrophically wrong.

Maybe there is hope for us yet!

..and I object to your objection…

I noticed a piece where the A.C.L.U. is taking suit with the The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority , with high-profile plaintiffs including Right-wing author and provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, author of ‘Dangerous’. The claim is that when the Washington Metro accepted adverts for Milo’s book, they were pressured by, allegedly, passengers who took exception to the very fact that Milo was asking people to buy his book. He wasn’t telling people that they should adopt any of the sexual preferences which he has written about. He wasn’t stating that people should go against their consciences, he was, simply, advising them that there was a book on offer, and that he was open to business.

The plaintiffs within this suit are strange bedfellows, by any stretch of imagination; P.E.T.A. (Animal rights, Vegan), Carafem (Abortion pills), Milo (homosexual rights, Right-wing and outrageously so, verging close to paeadophilic approbation); and of course the A.C.L.U. itself.

Some on ATW might remember, as I did, a post way back in early 2008 which was a scorching denunciation of homosexual activities in public toilets: and some might also remember my firm statements that the A.C.L.U., despite its taking up of many ultra-liberal causes, was probably the best thing to come down the American highway, because of its neutrality. What greater affirmation can there be, that the A.C.L.U. is the best; because it stands up for everybody?
