“A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 49% of Likely U.S. Voters say they want the government to allow no refugees from Syria and other Middle Eastern countries into the United States.

Got that? 49% say None. Zilch. Zero.

Another 20% only support President Obama’s initial proposal of allowing 10,000 refugees to resettle here. Just 22% agree with the administration’s decision to allow in even more refugees, including seven percent (7%) who favor resettling 100,000 or more in this country.

In essence, no one apart from Obama, Hillary and Kerry support the US taking in 185,00 “refugees’ in the next year and a bit. So the question then becomes WHY does this Obama regime find itself so diametrically opposed to the will of America?

I thought this was truly amazing;


Graffiti which was sprayed on a wall in Coleraine stating “no refugees welcome” is being treated as a hate crime, PSNI have confirmed. The message sprayed in red paint appeared at the weekend on the wall beside the Salvation community church on Ballycastle Road, Coleraine. SDLP MLA John Dallat condemned those responisble for the incident. He said: “I have the highest regard for the Salvation Army and was happy to propose the Salvation Army for the Freedom of the Borough along with Saint Vincent de Paul Society when I was mayor in 2001.

How on EARTH is expressing a political opinion in public a “hate crime”? If they had scrawled “No economic migrants wanted” would THAT have been “hate crime”? It is very disturbing to see the PSNI used as a weapon to subdue political opinion that dissents from that which some think is mainstream. There has been NO POLL on the view of N.Ireland people on whether we want thousands of “migrants” – and until there is I would have thought the PSNI might do better to keep their noses out of this and chase real crime. Like, for example, finding the killers of Kevin McGuigan.

Having spent a significant part of the 20th century invading Europe, Germany seems to want to make up for it by encouraging the invasion of its own country. However this has consequences..

The Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV), Germany’s domestic security watchdog, said the number of radical Salafists had surged to 7,900 in September from 7,500 in June, and that many were trying to lure asylum-seekers into their ranks.

“We are very concerned that Islamists in Germany are trying, under the cover of humanitarian assistance, to exploit the situation of the refugees for their own ends and to proselytise and recruit among asylum-seekers,” BfV president Hans-Georg Maassen said in a statement.

Germany expects to receive up to one million asylum-seekers this year, five times more than last year. Syrians, who are fleeing their war-ravaged country, form the largest group.

It seems that Frau Merkel has chosen to turn Germany into Dar al Islam. Quite remarkable.

Seen this news?

The first Syrian refugees to be resettled in the UK since the government announced it was expanding its protection scheme have arrived.  The government has not disclosed how many were in the group nor clarified whether they were already due to arrive before the scheme was expanded. The prime minster has pledged to take 20,000 Syrians from camps by 2020.  The arrivals were announced on the day EU ministers backed a migrant quota plan, which the UK has opted out of.

These people below should be contacted by Government and MADE to take in “Syrians” (Bearing in mind 80% of Refugees aren’t actually Syrian, a pesky detail but sometimes details matter)


Oh, and by the way, the use of the word refugees is more lazy and contrived journalism. They are economic migrants. At best.

Eastern European countries really were duped into bowing under the EU yoke. Reports the BBC (my emphasis, and note the standard BBC propaganda photo at the top of the piece) –

Migrant crisis: EU ministers approve disputed quota plan

EU interior ministers have approved a controversial plan to relocate 120,000 migrants across the continent over the next two years. It will see migrants moved from Italy, Greece and Hungary to other EU countries.

Romania, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary voted against accepting mandatory quotas. After the vote, Slovakia’s prime minister said he would not accept the new quotas.

Finland abstained from the vote. Poland, which had opposed the proposal, voted for it.

The number is irrelevent; it’s already out of date so vast is the flood of illegal immigrants. The important thing is that the rest of the EU gang (minus the UK, which thankfully has an opt out here) has ordered supposedly sovereign countries to accept aliens they do not want, and saud they will not accept, on their territory.

The EU is crumbling. Slovakia has already told the EU to get stuffed. I suspect that the Hungarian patriot Viktor Orban will do the same. The Czech interior minister has reported said “Soon we will find out that the emperor has no clothes. Reason lost today”.

The EU will eventually lose. Germany has managed nothing more than a bureaucratic win which means nothing on the ground. These matters, affecting national sovereigny, are normally agreed only by unanimous votes. The Western European ministers managed to impose these quotas by majority vote. The ill-feeling will reach right up from government to all the populations affected.

My advice to Prague, Budapest, Bucharest and Bratislava would be to call Merkel and tell her she’d better send some tanks, because that’s the only way that unwelcome foreigners will get in.

I loath gutter press journalism. It’s lurid and appeals to our base emotions. I try not to comment on the stories that they spew forth on ATW but you would not have been able to avoid this story concerning the alleged undergraduate antics of David Cameron.

Claims that David Cameron performed an obscene act with a dead pig and smoked cannabis during his studies at Oxford University have spread around the world. The extraordinary allegations were made in a new unauthorised biography of the Prime Minister written by Lord Ashcroft. The Conservative peer and donor claimed an anonymous MP had seen a photo of the alleged incident with the pig, during a Piers Gaveston Society event, although he had not seen any evidence himself and said it could be a case of mistaken identity.

Look, I know the Pig allegation will cause sniggering in some circles and I can half see the joke BUT the fact is that everyone does stupid things when they are young and I fail to see why this has ANY political relevance beyond smearing David Cameron?

I’m more concerned what Jeremy Corbyn did when he was a mature adult, cavorting with various terrorists. I couldn’t care less about who he had an affair with – am just not interested. We shouldn’t lower ourselves into the gutter, or even the pig trough for that matter.

Now then, even as the media and some on the right denounce Carson, this is quite a good argument as to why he is exactly RIGHT in the sentiment he expressed;

When we discuss “Islam,” it should be assumed that we are talking about both a religion and a political-social ideology. Clearly, one can accept the religious tenets and not the ideology. But if someone asks a public figure about “Islam,” the term should be understood as conveying a belief system that is not merely, or even primarily, religious. And if that is not what the questioner intends, then the burden should be on the questioner to clarify.

When Dr. Carson said Islam is inconsistent with the Constitution, he meant that Islamic ideology is inconsistent with the Constitution. That is so patently true that a question about whether this is the case should be considered frivolous. Carson was not saying that being a Muslim who accepts the purely religious tenets of Islam is inconsistent with fidelity to the Constitution. In fact, when asked if he would consider voting for a Muslim for Congress, he replied that this would “depend on who that Muslim is and what their policies are.” That makes perfect sense – a pro-Constitution Muslim who accepts Islam’s religious tenets but rejects the imposition of sharia on society would be fine; an adherent of Islamic ideology who seeks to impose sharia on society (i.e., an Islamist or Islamic supremacist) would not. This, undoubtedly, is why Carson included Muslims within the broad group of people he could support (persons of “any faith”) provided that their statements and actions suggest “things that will elevate this nation and make it possible for everybody to succeed, and bring peace and harmony.”

What Carson said should not be controversial.

Hard to argue with that. Carson was right.

Can we not do anything on our own anymore?

Having closed down perfectly good coal-fired power stations on the orders of Brussels, the British government has hit on a solution to eventually plug the gap, if we don’t freeze to death first. Reports the BBC:

Chancellor George Osborne has announced that the UK will guarantee a £2bn deal under which China will invest in the Hinkley Point nuclear power station.

Mr Osborne, who is in China, said the deal would pave the way for a final investment decision on the delayed project by French energy company EDF.

He said it would also enable greater collaboration between Britain and China on the construction of nuclear plants.

Reports suggest one such reactor could be built at Bradwell-on-Sea in Essex.

Energy Secretary Amber Rudd told the Financial Times she wanted Beijing to take the lead in developing new nuclear plants in Britain.

She said China was expected to lead the construction of a Beijing-designed nuclear station at the Essex site.

I know I’m a cynic, but I think it’s fair to have a couple of reservations.

One is that the market says “no” if taxpayer money has to guarantee funding. A second is that the operator will be guaranteed an outrageously high price per unit. Financially and economically, it appears barmy, but then politicians will always be relaxed about making others dig deep.

My primary concern, however, lies in China designing and building nuclear power stations in Britain. They’re not known for the highest construction standards over there. Many structures have failed simply through bad design and shoddy construction. The Nuclear Inspectorate will be all over it, but I’m not exactly reassured.

Britain has been in the civil nuclear generation business from the very beginning. We’re the world’s fifth largest economy. By the time it gets built we’ll be the fourth largest. My worry is that we’ll be third by the time it blows up and 150th a day later. We have the expertise and the City is overflowing with investment funds. We can keep all this in house. I know that China is a coming economic and – eventually – geopolitical power, but the Tory leadership seems to have a very unhealthy fixation with Peking.
