A VIGILANTE group ­has attacked a teenage gang’s ringleaders in a bid to put a stop to their reign of terror […]

We told yesterday how the teen mob have been behind a number of vicious assaults, ­robberies and even threats on the lives of gardai. Locals say the yobs — who move between Blanchardstown and out into north Co Dublin — have left parents too scared to let their kids out to play and pensioners terrified.

This gang of thugs sound like a rum lot, ready for a good kicking. The so-called vigilantes ought to be thanked for their service. But who are they, these thugs. Who are they?

We revealed yesterday that the gang, with African origins, are being “left to run amok” by gardai because they don’t have the resources to deal with them. Sources said the hoods are “arrested every week” but cops risk setting off “a mini riot” every time they decide to nab one of the youths.

I’m so old I remember when a German Christmas market was a place of fun, welcome and good cheer.

I don’t like these newly-enriched Christmas traditions. Take it from me, the old ways are always best. It’s time to turn back the clock, to reverse the mistakes.

Happy Thanksgiving!

The great American holiday has rolled around again as we Yanks celebrate the Pilgrims who arrived in the first immigrant caravan called The Mayflower. Despite not knowing the language, their odd religion, and lack of suitable job training they were welcomed by The Natives whose assistance saved them from all dying that first year after landing. Cheeky, aren’t I?

Bit of local travel for me, out to Long Island for the extended family gathering. The traffic will suck but the rewarding reunion will be worth it.

Food and drink without the materialistic exchange of prrsents. Football to be watched and played. Turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, gravy, apple turnovers, vegetables, pies, etc.

The past swirling about the present as my kids will sit where I once sat, my father the grandfather now, the departed remembered for what they said then or would say now. Traditions upheld and broken. Laughter cheer and good times. May you all have a Happy Thanksgiving if you celebrate the holiday, and even if you don’t!

Not for the first time, HM Revenue & Customs informs Parliament that there is “no need for any infrastructure whatever at the Irish border in any scenario”.

The entire backstop issue, the one which the treacherous No.10 is using to as good as keep us in the EU, is entirely fictitious. It was always a non-problem painted up to be an insurmountable hurdle.

(CNN)  A Detroit judge has dropped nearly all the charges against a Michigan doctor accused of performing female genital mutilation on at least nine underage girls, according to court documents […]

The enactment of a law criminalizing female genital mutilation was not a permissible use of congressional power, Friedman wrote in his opinion, concluding that the law itself was unconstitutional.

“As laudable as the prohibition of a particular type of abuse of girls may be, it does not logically further the goal of protecting children on a nondiscriminatory basis,” Friedman wrote, later noting that the Supreme Court has said that individual states, not the federal government, have the authority to police local criminal activity.

Friedman also noted that although Congress may regulate a practice if it is “commercial or economic in nature and that substantially affects interstate commerce,” but “as despicable as [female genital mutilation] may be, it is essentially a criminal assault” and not a commercial or economic enterprise, Friedman wrote.

I assume that the decision is open to appeal, since the Supremes ultimately decide what is and isn’t constitutional.

What a fascinating website this is. It’s easy to zoom in and out too. From birth, through growing up, going to university and for work, I’ve lived at six addresses in England. Each one is surrounded by our Great War dead. A farm I walk past most weekends, just down the lane, lost two sons within a year of each other. The impact of the war was total. No-one left was left untouched.

Police officers could start letting violent suspects go if they do not get the backing of the public, a federation leader has warned.

The chairman of the Metropolitan Police Federation, Ken Marsh, spoke out after video footage appearing to show two officers locked in a violent struggle as they tried to make an arrest was shared thousands of times on social media.

Sorry, fat doughnut-munchers. You’re on your own as far as I’m concerned. Don’t go asking for our help now.

I’m naturally inclined to support the police, but they’re not on our side. They haven’t been for many decades. The police now are the enforcement wing of the culturally Marxist state, and it loves to get stuck into miscreants. Too many victims of crime have been told that the police can’t attend. They’ve been told that their burglary or their assault won’t be investigated. But woe betide anyone who says or types the wrong comment – you’ll have your collar felt then.

One reason why they want our help now is that the police have abandoned the streets. The dreadful Roy Jenkins did that in the 1960s. The police are happy to comply. They can whizz around in helicopters and high end cars after an incident has happened, all the while complaining of budget cuts. But you can’t be unstabbed.

The primary job of the rozzers is preventative policing. That means having a presence to deter criminals in the first place. Everyone in the UK knows that they have chosen to abandon this, so criminals act with impunity, and now the police want our help. Sorry, too late.

I don’t want to be too mean to them, so here’s what I’ll do. If I see a copper getting done over I’ll call them a week later to offer sympathy and to say that, alas, my resources won’t allow any further hep.

Lock Her Up?

Apparently Ivanka Trump, the advisor and daughter of our very stable genius President, used personal e-mails while conducting government business. Where have I heard that before? I’m not sure if she was distracted while attending her Dad’s rallies and missed the issue. I imagine her husband Jared Kushner was too involved in bringing peace to the Middle East to warn her that such activity might not be a good idea.

In reality it seems like a harmless error to me. In political terms it was pretty tone deaf at best, hypocritical at worst. It is bound to be overplayed by some and underplayed by others. But it allows one to chuckle, which is not the worst reaction to this Administration.

Trump States He Will Build A Wall In Press Room, And Make Media Pay For It.

The Clown Prince who serves as the US President and the Nation’s foremost authority on Finnish raking is no doubt seething that he had to restore CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s press pass (A Trump appointed Judge opined that he was denied due process). I’ve no love for Acosta who strikes me as a bit too self-promoting, but ego shouldnt bar one from the press room. It will annoy Trump but also play to his addiction for having spats. Maybe he will start to build a wall.

All in, the education of young people in England who turned 21 in 2015 cost an average of about £73,000 – more for those who went to university.

£73K, to produce a teenage illiterate who knows nothing of his country but has a head filled with Marxist guff. I love how the BBC illustrates its story with a photo of cute little British girls. They imagine it’ll be more palatable than immigrant children. Such subtle propagandists.

So tell me again how a low-skilled immigrant, producing a large family, helps our economy. £73K is what each of them costs us just for the school years. Add on health care, welfare, housing, tax credits etc etc.A low-skilled immigrant family costs us hundreds of thousands of pound, easily. Go on, tell me again how they help the economy. Tell me again how they pay in more than they take out.

The truth is that the financial cost alone of mass immigration is a catastrophe.
