Gosh. Ever wanted to disregard employment law, ignore fairness and obscure all transparency in recruitment? Stormont is the place to be!

“Opposition politicians have expressed concern about the use of a special legal procedure to appoint a new Stormont press secretary.  The first and deputy first ministers used powers under what is known the Royal Prerogative to create the role for former BBC journalist David Gordon. Mr Gordon edited the BBC’s Nolan Show.  The Newsletter has discovered the law was changed using the highly unusual procedure to enable the post to be filled without being advertised.”

So the Office of the First and Deputy First Minister deploy an obscure law to ensure they can recruit for a key post without ever advertising it. Naturally it is a BBC minion that they wish to place at the heart of their spin operation. David Gordon is not the first such to move from BBC NI to Stormont spin. A BBC NI “senior political editor” called Stephen Grimason did the same some years ago and now holds high office.

When it comes to the Stormont Government and the BBC I am reminded of this quote from 1984….

“The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.”

Seen this trumpeted news?

A 24-year-old transgender soldier has become the first woman to serve on the front line with the British Army. Chloe Allen, from Cumbria, joined the Scots Guards as a man in 2012 but began hormone therapy in the last month, and has officially changed her name.  The Army said it was delighted to have its first woman in a close-combat role.

“She” is not a woman. “She” is a man with mental issues who remains a man despite changing his name to that of a woman and taking some hormones. The fact that the Army run with this pretention is pretty depressing. I am not surprised the BBC instantly swoop on the gender manipulation to advance their own desire to pretend a man can become a woman.

I recall all those years when under the jackboot of Comrade Chavez, a much admires figure in the pantheon of International Socialism, Venezuela was hailed as the very model of the joys it can bring. And now that Chavez rots in peace? Not so much.


“Food shortages in Venezuela, South America, has caused a dramatic increase in child malnutrition. In the capital of Caracas alone, the number of cases of severely malnourished children is reported to have at least doubled. According to Dr Ingrid Soto, chief of nutrition at children hospital J. M. de los Ríos, so far this year 65 kids have been admitted, whereas in all of 2015 the total was 35. And across the socialist country seven children under the age of 14 have died from simply not having enough to eat.”

I know many politicians are whores but who knew they wanted to extend the franchise?

A Liberal Democrat councillor has told a party conference that schools could suggest prostitution as a career to pupils. Dennis Parsons, who is chairman of the Cheltenham Liberal Democrats, made the comment during a special session on sex work.

The retired civil servant said school career officers are currently not allowed to mention prostitution as a potential line of work, but added: ‘Why shouldn’t they?’ Mr Parsons also compared prostitution with accountancy when discussing how to combat the stigma attached to sex work.

Prostitution to be put on the syllabus? I see.

WELL thanks, Samsung. I recently picked up one of their S-thingy phones. It’s all jolly good. I can use the phone and text functions, which was about the limit of my needs to be honest. Then I put all my music on it. That I managed to do so was an unexpected triumph, and it sounds good. I’ve now discovered that the camera is absolutely superb. The picture quality is at least as good as my DSLR, in a package nowhere near as large or weighty. Here’s a little something which just came to hand (oh yes) which I just aimed at –


But I’ve also just realised that everything else I own is now redundant. I haven’t used a land line for years anyway, but my new-fangled iPod thingy and my cameras are no longer needed. I can use some pay thingy if I like, though I’m not really sure about that. My Tomtom might be on borrowed time because it has a satnav. Then again I’m a bloke so I don’t need directions. The alarm is super loud, so I’ll add that to the stock. When you sleep as deeply as I do you need a cacophony to wake you up. It has an egg timer apparently, which looks sweet. It even has a torch on it. Frankly it looks like I’ll soon be chucking everything else away. What splendid innovations are out there.

Constitution Day

By The Troll On September 17th, 2016 at 3:53 pm

“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”


Rome’s Republic lasted about 500 years. Our REPUBLIC started with the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution by thirty-nine brave men on September 17, 1787.  A Document was agreed upon to form and control a Government to create and perform the minimal central duties of a Nation of Independent States. To Constrain that Government from becoming one of Tyranny.

It is a Document of RESTRICTIONS placed on those that we Elect to Office.

It is NOT a writ for them to Control US, but for THE PEOPLE to control the Government.


We the people

of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

The LAWS and RULES of our Society are spelled out in this Document. IT IS the Keystone of our Culture. Now it has been under attack since the beginning. The First Major Attack happened in 1803 Marbury vs Madison. It is mans nature to seek power and his tendency to become corrupt and tyrannical once achieving it. Our founders new this and designed this document to fight just that problem. By dividing the power into 3 separate equal branches.

This past President Ignored all those Rules and Laws. Neither of the two Running to Replace him will do anything to fix the damage that this Radical Anti-American Tyrant has done to the basic Fabric of our Nation.

This does NOT mean that it will go uncorrected. Conservatism Lost this Presidential Election, We however have gone NO WHERE. We will correct the damage. It may take Time, but it will be done.

We can not be Silenced, and over time we can not lose. Truth, Liberty, and Justice will prevail. We will Win, because we are in the Right and in the Long Run Justice and Decency always prevail.

God Blessed our Founders their Wisdom and we shall uphold and pursue Truth, Justice, and The American Way.

Even if we have to shove it down your throats.

NO REALLY. It’s rare that politicians make themselves useful, but the House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee did exactly that this week. It’s been examining the the catastrophic Libyan intervention and its report (PDF) rightly dumps a load of criticism on it.

Cameron has got away with something as disastrous as Blair’s Iraq folly. I can only assume that Iraq was always more prominent in the consciousness because our Armed Forces were there in great numbers and suffered for it. However Libya is proving to be a greater disaster for Western Civilisation.

We’ll recall how the apparent threat of a massacre in Benghazi was the pretext for intervention. The entire media, along with legions of politicians, were agreed that Gadaffi’s forces had to be stopped short of Benghazi, because they would massacre its inhabitants.

This was a lie. Someone has said so previously in here. Now the Foreign Affairs Committee has revealed that there was “no evidence” for such a massacre (paragraph 32), along with criticising many others reasons given for the intervention. No wonder the report was released to little media fanfare or scrutiny.

Yet again, we were lied to for war. It cannot be said to often, that when the drumbeat sounds we ought to assume at first instance that we are being lied to.

Happy Birthday, Mr. President

Even Trump couldn’t keep the lie going, admitting today that the President was born in the United States.  I am sure that those on the Internet who are immune and hostile to facts will remain so.  The bigger question is why an adult would cling to a lie for so long.  Attention?  Vindictive nature?   It is a mystery.

Trump said Obama spent millions trying to get away from the issue.  He pandered to every lunatic claim going.  I suppose the crazies will say his saying he was wrong is part of the conspiracy.

I thought this development was interesting.

The nation’s largest police union on Friday endorsed Donald Trump for president, lauding his commitment to police officers. The Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) gave the GOP presidential nominee its endorsement after he received support from more than two-thirds of the group’s national board.

“[Trump] has seriously looked at the issues facing law enforcement today. He understands and supports our priorities and our members believe he will make America safe again,” said Chuck Canterbury, the FOP’s national president. “He’s made a real commitment to America’s law enforcement and we’re proud to make a commitment to him and his campaign by endorsing his candidacy today.

Meanwhile Hillary lines up behind the Black Lives Matter criminal thugocracy,
