He’s Making A List

By Mahons On January 29th, 2019 at 11:19 am

I have often wondered if singer Michael Bolton would be a better advisor than Trump’s actual advisor John Bolton. A man who sings bad versions of soul classics over a man with no soul. At least Michael Bolton can recall basic lyrics without needing a legal pad.

John Bolton’s odd behavior usually involves things he’s said. This week it was something he wrote, on a legal pad, held by him like a deranged shopping list and observed by the medis. A two sentence list that 1. welcomed talks in Afghanistan (not controversial) and 2. Indicated 5000 troops to Columbia (a WTF entry).
Was the reveal intentional? Is he sending some weird signal to foes in Venezuela? Is he part of a war fantasy club? Has cursive become extinct?

Bolton never saw a war he didnt like, except for Vietnam where he managed to avoid service, not wanting to “die in a rice paddy” in his words. But other wars he loves, especially since he wont be going himself. Columbian officials were not aware of any such plans, and even with their 1300 miles border with Venezuela havent asked for any such help. The White House crptically responded all options are on the table which is government speak for no one has any idea what option might work.

I dont think there is much enthusiasm here for the deployment of troops to South America. Why Bolton would need to write such things down (does he have a note on his shoes “put feet in”) and/or hold them out for people to see is unknown. It could have read “pick up dry cleaning”, “fish sticks tonight” or “get milk”. The only real conclusion is when odd guys are in public places they do odd things.

Guest Post from Paul

Today is International Holocaust Memorial Day, when the world remembers the Nazi’s ‘Final Solution’, not only the wholesale slaughter of men, women and children based on their Jewish ethnicity but also of Gypsies, homosexuals, and political opponents. The world said ‘never again’ but echoes of the Final Solution were to be found in the closing decades of the 20th century in Europe in the former Yugoslavia and in Africa in Rwanda.

I was surprised to read today that some 5% of Britons don’t believe the Holocaust happened and that 8% say the numbers murdered have been exaggerated:

Of course some will dispute the numbers as a stepping stone to cast doubt on the wider issue but what I find fascinating is the psychology behind such denial, what drives it? Is it ethnic hatred, a sense of superiority, a tendency towards easy manipulation etc? I’ve read psychology articles which have stated that those who tend to believe conspiratorial claims do so out of a sense of narcissistic ego, believing that they are more intelligent / have a higher level of consciousness that enables them to see things others can’t. Of course here at ATW we have our own deniers, some blatant deniers while some are more sneaky.

Opinions? What is it that makes 5% of Britons believe that, based on ethnicity, and to a lesser extent political ideology,  people weren’t persecuted, imprisoned and murdered in industrial quantities by the Nazis?

“ Step it out Mary “ on Ryanair

We’ve all been told tales of Catholic school boys in groups acting badly. Here, another such incident. Students of St. Brendan’s College in Killarney, blocking the aisles, singing without a permit, disturbing passengers who might wish to be sleeping.

Toxic masculinity! Irish privilege!!

Someone call the CNN and the Guardian.

The “ older generation “ Are often hyper-critical of the young. I’m not buying any of it. The emerging generation will be as great as any that preceded it.

Good job lads.

ACTE 11

For the eleventh week running France has been on fire. And I mean France, not Paris. Every corner of the country appears to be in protest at Macron. The British press used to at least mention the yellow vests in passing. Now it doesn’t bother to mention the protests at all. It’s as if they’d rather people didn’t know.

Check out this remarkable thread for footage from across the country today. Open it up and keep scrolling –

COMMIES ARE REMINDED: PROFIT IS GOOD

By Pete Moore On January 26th, 2019 at 5:56 pm

It’s been an instructive week for Bolsheviks on both sides of the pond.

The National Union of Students is not only one of the loonier outposts of leftwingery, it’s been a revolutionary training school for many a politician, journalist and other vultures eager to lord it over the plebs.

The NUS has been losing money for a long time and its liabilities are crippling. It was revealed this week that it’s shedding half of its paid staff and having to flog its London HQ just to stay alive.

It’s no better at the Huffington Post and Buzzfeed, two far-left sites specialising in fake news and clickbait rubbish for bored millennials. Both are laying off a load of staff writers. Why? Because they’re losing money.

So all of a sudden a few commies might have realised that profit is both good and necessary. It’s nature’s way of saying that you’re meeting a demand while adding value. These organisations are not only not adding value, they’re making everyone a little bit poorer. They’re putting resources together and conducting operations in such a way that kills value. That’s what making a loss is. So it’s better for everyone if loss makers simply stop what they’re doing.

PC GUL HAS BEEN ON A COURSE

By Pete Moore On January 26th, 2019 at 1:10 pm

This story appears to be true, that a man was investigated for retweeting a limerick. Unroll please –

It cannot be said too often that the police are no longer on our side. They are paramilitaries for the PC state, soaked in radical Marxist dogma which is shoved into their minds on the many courses they must attend. It is exactly what Orwell’s 1984 described, the policing of Thoughtcrime.

IMPORT AFRICA, GET AFRICA

By Pete Moore On January 26th, 2019 at 12:40 pm

“Breast ironing.”

An African practice of “ironing” a girl’s chest with a hot stone to delay breast formation is spreading in the UK, with anecdotal evidence of dozens of recent cases, a Guardian investigation has established.

Community workers in London, Yorkshire, Essex and the West Midlands have told the Guardian of cases in which pre-teen girls from the diaspora of several African countries are subjected to the painful, abusive and ultimately futile practice […]

The perpetrators, usually mothers, consider it a traditional measure which protects girls from unwanted male attention, sexual harassment and rape.

One wonders how much enrichment we can take. Left-liberals are the ultimate colonisers. They imagine that primitive people from backward cultures will shed their old ways the moment they arrive in the West. It an attempt at colonising the mind. And it’s futile of course, as futile as “breast ironing”.
