THE RACE IS ON…

By David Vance On May 11th, 2016 at 11:31 am

Even in the UK, the idea of President Trump is increasingly seen as a distinct possibility. This sort of story informs such a view…

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are running neck-and-neck in three key battleground states deemed key to winning the White House in November’s presidential election. The two are effectively tied in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania, according to a poll conducted by Quinnipiac University, in figures that will provide a boost to Mr Trump’s maverick campaign. Previous nationwide polls have shown him trailing Mrs Clinton, often by significant margins.

Now there is still a lot of water to flow under the bridge before we know who will most likely become POTUS but only a fool would now write off Trump. With each month he seems to gain momentum and stature – to the chagrin of GOP elitists. And Clinton? Doesn’t the passing time just shine a light into her dark history?

CHEERS

I was a big fan of the US comedy “Cheers”. The idea of a bar where “everybody knows your name” was very appealing and the cast of quirky characters was also good to witness. And so it is with ATW – I look upon the site as a sort of Cheers on amphetamines! Yes, there tends to be much argument amongst the regulars but I just wanted to let you ALL know that I value and respect each one of you and I hope you will still come through these doors confident that the owner is proud to call you all his friends!

ALMOST HEAVEN, WEST VIRGINIA…

By David Vance On May 11th, 2016 at 11:07 am

This made me chuckle…

Bernie Sanders has won the West Virginia primary in the Democratic race for the presidential nomination, US media project. The Vermont senator still trails Hillary Clinton in the overall contest for delegates but this win keeps his slim hopes alive. “We are going to fight for every last vote,” he said in a victory speech that also attacked Republican Donald Trump.

Crazy Bernie adds much needed colour to the Democrat coronation process of La Clinton. Talking of whom – did you see this?

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has received consistently high financial support from Wall Street during her campaign, with business interests increasing donations in the wake of mainstream Republicans bowing out of the race.
Gosh – Wall Street and its crony corporatists love Hillary, now who would have thought that? Arab money flows her way, Wall St cash flows her way. She IS the establishment figure. Trump stands as the insurgent.

A NEW CHAPTER!

By David Vance On May 11th, 2016 at 11:02 am

Well then, it’s been a while since my first book “Unionism Decayed” came out – that was 2007. I am now making good progress on the next book.  The working title is “Von Clausewitz in reverse” – and it tackles an entire range of topics, from the Poverty Industry to the Health Service, from Immigration to Sexuality. My thesis is that the political Left have weaponised all these areas and the book explores how and why.  I hope to have that book completed by end Summer. Must say how natural it feels to be writing another book. Whilst the first one was all about N. Ireland this is much broader in scope and I want to make sure it gets the right sort of launch so I will be working hard to achieve that aim. We live in an age of social media – where 140 characters is as much concentration as some will give. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy Twitter and appreciate the great support I get from my followers. But a book is something else – more special, more enduring.

TREVOR PHILLIPS IS RIGHT

By Pete Moore On May 10th, 2016 at 8:32 pm

Hey, don’t oppress me. It’s perfectly ok to say that Phillips is right. He’s black and everything.

Britain risks “flames” of racial and religious conflict because of a “liberal self-delusion” over the impact of mass immigration, the former head of the equality watchdog Trevor Phillips claims today.

In a startling assault on decades of official multiculturalism and diversity policy, the founding  chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission argues the UK is being allowed to “sleepwalk to catastrophe” by leaders too “touchy”, “smug”, “complacent” and “squeamish” to talk about race.

Drawing a direct parallel with Enoch Powell’s notorious “rivers of blood” speech, he likens Britain’s politicians, media and educated elite in general to the Emperor Nero fiddling while Rome burned, unable even to recognise the “dark side of the diverse society”.

Trevor Phillips, one of the high priests of multiculturalism, though now pretty much an apostate, must read ATW. It was only a few days ago that the house Hatefinders General couldn’t spot an antisemite even if a beardedm 20-stone one landed on them from the top of Bradford mosque. Yes, Phillips is talking about that kind of thing. He’s noticed that there’s an ill wind in the country about race and immigration, and it’s fed by continued Left-Liberal silence to defend (genuine) liberal values.

Citing the examples of the Rotherham and Rochdale grooming scandals, the sexual assaults in Cologne at New Year and earlier findings from Sweden he calls for frank and open discussion of the possibility of a link between rape and the perpetrators’ “cultural background”.

“The typical response of Britain’s political and media elite confronted with awkward facts has been evasion, because – we say – talking about these issues won’t solve the problem; instead, it will stigmatise vulnerable minority groups,” he said.

“Any attempt to ask whether aspects of minority disadvantage may be self-inflicted is denounced as ‘blaming the victim’.

“Instead, we prefer to answer any difficult questions by focusing on the historic prejudices of the dominant majority.

“In short, it’s all about white racism.”

In short, he’s bang on. There is troubling brewing and the Left is fueling it through intellectual and moral cowardice.

MAYOR KHAN…

By David Vance On May 10th, 2016 at 5:41 pm

Well, he may just have become Mayor of London but he is moving fast to establish exactly where he stands.

Sadiq Khan, the new mayor of London, has rebuffed Donald Trump’s suggestion that he could be an exception to Trump’s proposed policy to ban all Muslims from travelling to the United States.

“Donald Trump’s ignorant view of Islam could make both our countries less safe – it risks alienating mainstream Muslims around the world and plays into the hands of the extremists. Donald Trump and those around him think that western liberal values are incompatible with mainstream Islam – London has proved him wrong.”

Well, not quite Sadiq. I would have thought the events of 7/7 in London rather validated Trump’s caution but in a way that is beside the point. WHY is the London Mayor calling a man who may become the next US President “ignorant’? Is this the new diplomacy? I think this is unseemly and it also misses another point. Who says that President Trump will want to see this Muslim Mayor?

NO WHITES WANTED…

By David Vance On May 10th, 2016 at 5:10 pm

Self loathing, the hallmark of many BBC leftists, has been nicely exposed in this story.

A range of British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) television departments, programmes, and radio stations are currently offering highly desirable, paid internships, but white people are prohibited from applying. 

Creative Access – an organisation, registered as a charity, which offers placements at “many of the UK’s top media organisations” – has listed a number of BBC placements on its website, demanding applicants are only from “Black, Asian and non-white minority ethnic backgrounds”.

As the Breibart article states, the head of Creative Access is … yes,  a Parliamentary candidate for the Labour Party, while one of the organisation’s board members is Baroness McDonagh, the former General Secretary of the Labour Party.

Labour. BBC. Hatred of our overwhelmingly White population.

I’ll be on Russia Today at 8pm to discuss this story. The BBC are playing mute on it.

Clinton or Trump

By The Troll On May 10th, 2016 at 1:47 am

or would you like both your eyes poked out or just one?

What do you do if both choices for the President of your country are people that you don’t like? People that both have very visible flaws.  What do you use to measure the choice that you are supposed to make?

You could vote party line if that is what you believe to be the smart thing to do. You root for your team and to hell with the other. You could vote your gender, Male or Female. You could vote issues both have said several things that they plan to do, whether or not either could be trusted to carry them out is yet to be seen.

Speaking for me and no one else I intend to use a simple rule who do I trust MORE.  Not who do I trust, but who do I trust more. Both candidates are New York Liberals. Both have championed a lot of the same things. Donald Trump has been on both sides of many issues, Hillary Clinton has been a consistent radical socialist.  So what either will do as President as far as policy is an unknown. They could be totally different or exactly the same. I defy anyone to guarantee what either will do.

I don’t like either, but unlike a lot that complain about how bad things are that refuse to vote for anyone I can’t do that, to me if you don’t bother to vote well then you have no right to complain or cheer how things are going because you’re useless either way.

Trump has had 3 wives, Hillary has attacked and destroyed the lives of several woman that her ONE Husband has had affairs with, been accused of raping, and molesting. She ran the “Bimbo Eruption Squad” that dealt with the scores of woman that came out and accused her lifetime partner of his multiple sexual misdeeds. Hillary’s Pretty in Pink speech where she said that the Monica Lewinsky affair was a right wing conspiracy on National TV,  she did so we now know with complete knowledge that her Husband was getting head from a twenty year old employee IN THE OVAL OFFICE.

Trump is a Billionaire he started from a rich family whose daddy gave him a Million to start out. Hillary has spent her whole Life as a civil servant. The Highest pay she ever received is just under 200,000. So how does a Civil Servant  acquire wealth in excess of over 250 MILLION Dollars?

Trump had a crooked get rich internet course that was called Trump University less than 10% of who took it feel they were ripped off. They probably were, ALL get rich internet courses are scams. That however is the only thing crooked so far to hit the Press. There may be more, but where is it in the press?

Hillary Clinton setup a private server to keep her e-mails “PRIVATE” as a Civil Servant she does not have the right to do so.

Hillary Rodham Clinton has committed a felony. That is apparent from the facts and in the plain-language of the federal statute that prohibits “Gathering, transmitting or losing defense information”, 18 U.S. Code § 793(e) and (f). This offense carries a potential penalty of ten years imprisonment. It is a Felony, It’s called a prima facie case: clear on the basis of known facts. It’s up to prosecutorial discretion by the US Attorney as to what charges may be filed and when. Nonetheless, Mrs. Clinton is clearly chargeable for violation of federal law. As of right now, the matter is under FBI investigation. This isn’t just about violation of Departmental policy. Why she hasn’t been charged is a question that needs to be asked Barack Obama it’s his decision no one else. She upon discovery of this server by the public and the courts immediately deleted 30,000 e-mails. In a Rico Case where the feds investigate Mobsters that act is also a crime. Hillary is under investigation for donations of tens of Millions of Dollars to the Clinton Foundation from Foreign Governments that gave the money WHILE she was Secretary of State and those countries had business transactions that needed HER approval at the State Department she has yet to be charged, once again a decision by Barack Obama.

Trump is a rude obnoxious New York Liberal. He has made a living out of living larger than life in the press insulting people. I don’t think he has any of the skills to be President. He did however by overwhelming majorities beat out 16 other Republicans who did have the skills to fulfill the duties of the office.  The PEOPLE voted that they would rather have an Obnoxious businessman with no Government skills over 16 candidates that had the skills.

Clinton has had the nomination of her party before a single vote was cast. She bought the Super Delegates that pick who the Democrat Party wants to be the nominee. The Democrat party does not let their voters choose their candidate, the party bosses choose no one else.

These are our candidates. There are no other choices.

In my opinion I’ll take Trump. He may be the worst President EVER, but he will be that bad due to honest screw ups. Hillary I know will be a bad President based on her failure after failure as Secretary of State, her Failure to pass a single Bill as Senator, her failure as a Wife to keep her husband from having sex with other woman, and more than anything else her CRIMINAL activity.

I’ll gladly take an honest Fool over a criminal Politician.

PROGRAMME FOR GOVERNMENT

By David Vance On May 9th, 2016 at 7:52 pm

And as the dust settles after the Assembly elections, this…

Negotiations over a programme for government for the new Northern Ireland Executive are to begin on Tuesday. The Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) and Sinn Féin remain the two biggest parties in the assembly after Thursday’s election. The first meeting of the new assembly is to take place on Thursday.  It is expected that MLAs will re-appoint Arlene Foster and Martin McGuinness as first and deputy first ministers.

It is widely understood that the DUP and Sinn Fein have already agreed upon the Programme for Government (PFG) and this is now all about political optics.  The bit that amuses me is that both parties stood for election publicly seeking a mandate for policies that are in many ways diametrically opposed to each other. But once they sheeple vote for them, they casually abandon such pledges and carve out the cash to suit themselves. It’s cynical but effective.

I read this most interesting statistic and wanted to share it….

“Interesting point on the election made on another thread – in every Unionist constituency except Upper Bann, the DUP lost votes. In every Nationalist constituency, the DUP gained votes. How much of the DUP’s continuing dominance of Northern Ireland politics is due to the support of conservative Roman Catholics who back their economic policies and their opposition to abortion and marriage equality?”
