A great leader communicates with his people, but this president is so productive. Read from bottom to top –
I was just going to nip out to the shops, so that’s a large bucket of popcorn added to the list. This one’s going to run and run. I suppose that Obama might be reflecting this weekend on the fact that Donald J Trump now has the incredible powers which he once misused. And that President Trump is not a pushover. And that Obama himself might come under presidential scrutiny.
There was no press honeymoon for President Trump during his first month in office. A meticulous new study by the Media Research Center finds that 88 percent of the broadcast news coverage of Mr. Trump and his team was “hostile” during the first 30 days of office.
The coverage was intense and plentiful. The study, which analyzed both tone and content for evening newscasts on ABC, NBC and CBS, found that the “Big Three” networks produced 16 hours of coverage on the new president and his staff. That is over half — 54 percent — of their total coverage for the month.
Let’s be straight. The liberal media despises Trump. They did ALL they could when he was running to get the nomination to stop him. They failed. They did ALL they could when he was running against Clinton to stop him. They failed. And now he is President they are out to stop him. They will fail.
This is not a free and impartial media asking tough questions. It is a viciously partisan operation,
Yesterday Northern Ireland went to the polls, as demanded by Sinn Fein. The pulled the last Assembly down using the pretext of the “Cash for Ash” scandal and today we will see how the people have voted.
I hear lots of reports about a “high turnout” but we shall see what in unveiled as we go through the day. I will be avoiding all TV coverage – all we get is the same partisan hacks spouting the same cliched things the BBC and UTV want.
I will make but one forecast. Nothing will change.
It never does. Every day is groundhog day in this state of entitlement.
It’s great to read that President Trump is already creating some much needed Climate Change.
The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) could face cuts of up to 70 per cent to its climate change programmes under a new White House proposal. President Donald Trump has long made clear his intention to reverse his predecessor Barack Obama’s green legacy, however he also pledged that any changes would not jeopardise America’s water and air quality.
A 70% Budget cut to EPA is a cause for some celebration.
The long march of the cultural Marxists through the institutions continues apace. Just look at this;
A university has banned phrases such as “right-hand man” and “gentleman’s agreement” under its code of practice on inclusive language.
Cardiff Metropolitan University’s guidance dictates that “gender-neutral” terms should be used where possible, adding that students should not allow their “cultural background” to affect their choice of words.
It advises that the terms “forefathers”, “mankind” and “sportsmanship” should be avoided, as part of efforts to “embrace cultural diversity” through language.
It used to be that a University education offered you the chance to have a free mind and to think for yourself. Nowadays it is the opposite. As in the case of this pathetic excuse for a University nowadays you are told what to say and what to think.
Let’s talk about the Swedish district of Rinkeby, on the outskirts of Stockholm,. It’s the place…
“Where cars were set alight, shops looted and shopkeepers beaten while youths went on the rampage.
I asked Mattias Karlsson, leader of the Swedish Democrats – currently leading in the polls – why other politicians refuse to acknowledge the problems right in front of their eyes.
He explained that to accept there is a problem would mean accepting nearly 80 years of liberal thinking was wrong. That multiculturalism doesn’t work, that mass immigration does not lead to integration, that Sweden has made a big mistake.
A stranger came up to me in a coffee shop to say much the same thing. She had read my first report. She implored me to shout louder.
She said Sweden cannot go on pretending it is some kind of utopia. That it is on a path to fail, that her friends fear Sweden is being overwhelmed.
The fears are real. The areas migrants inhabit have become sink suburbs, riddled with no-go zones, even for the police, where hand-grenade attacks are the accepted norm, women stay indoors, and the ambulances and fire engines need police escorts. God help any good people forced to live here.
Allah will provide for them. Sweden is dying. Those who mocked Trump when he raised Sweden as an example of what can go wrong when immigration is unchecked are as foolish as the “feminist” Swedish Government which has no way of controlling what it has allowed to happen. Swedistan will be a long way from Abba.
We are edging closer to the French Presidential elections (Late April, early May) and it’s worth considering the political future offered to France by Marine Le Pen’s main opponent – Emmanuel Macron.
Macron is being vigorously pushed as the “acceptable” alternative to Le Pen by an EU political/media establishment DESPERATE to try and derail a Le Pen victory.
OK – so what does he stand for?
“Maintaining that mass migration is inescapable and will only accelerate, former investment banker Emmanuel Macron said immigrants are good for France and bring “fresh bursts of creativity and innovation” to society.
(Was the Bataclan an example of that “fresh burst of creativity?” How about the Charlie Hebdo massacre? The Nice Promenade atrocity?)
The presidential race’s establishment candidate also asserted that problems in migrant communities have nothing to do with waves of mass migration but are due to France’s failure to integrate them properly. He also voiced support for positive discrimination in employment and ‘mixing’ neighbourhood demographics in cities.\
Placing him in context we discover that…gasps…
Wikileaks revealed Macron was working on an alliance with Hillary Clinton last year before her shock defeat in the U.S. presidential election. The globalist candidate had requested the Democratic presidential candidate’s presence at a private roundtable dinner in October with several European politicians, according to an email published on Wikileaks. At this, a discussion “to evaluate how progressives develop a successful political and economic narrative to counter the right and populists to the left” was due to take place.
So, in Macron the French have a pro-immigration pro Globalist shill who is not interested the massive problems France has.
The unelected political chamber of the House of Lords has inflicted what the Fake News BBC optimistically describes as a “Brexit defeat” on the Government by INSISTING that it provides security of tenure to EU citizens living in the UK before it triggers Article 50. This has caused mass jubilation in the butt hurt Remain camp who touchingly still hold out the vain hope that a/ we will either never Brexit or b/ we have what they call a “Soft Brexit” (meaning no effective Brexit)
Let’s cut through the hype, shall we?
For starters, this is not a defeat of any sort. The House of Lords amendment will be defeated when it is returned in the House of Commons and indeed that will be the way with EVERY petty amendment they try to force through the Commons. Unless the majority in the Commons support the Lords amendment – and there is NO EVIDENCE of this – it simply cannot pass and it won’t.
So this is vainglorious virtue signalling by the ermined hordes.
The REASON why the Government will not concede here is that if it did, it would seriously undermine our negotiating strength with the EU. (The HOL know this – part of their motivation). It is clear that the UK WANTS to offer EU citizens living in the UK security of tenure BUT not until UK citizens living in the EU are afforded the same security. When Theresa May tried to breach this some weeks ago with Angela Merkel, she was brushed off.
In a negotiation you do not reveal your hand to your opponent. The House of Lords seeks to weaken the UK vs the EU and put the needs of foreigners (yes, that word) ahead of Brits. Time to abolish it.
You do not defeat terrorism by rewarding terrorists, regardless of how many bleeding heart liberals argue otherwise. Want to know where that flawed approach leads to? Read UNIONISM DECAYED 1997-2007 - It's my first book and it explains what happens when you seeek to appease terrorists and call it peace. It's available right now for ATW readers so make sure you get your copy by emailing the editor! This is the book that dissents from the herd mentality that doing wrong can lead to being right. It doesn't and this book spells out WHY.
