If you haven’t figured out who I’m pulling for in the next election than you’re not really paying attention. 2016 is a long way off, but the circus started before Christmas when Jeb started to gobble up as much of the party money as he could.
Here is the platform that I support, read it tell me what you like, what you don’t like. What you believe even if he were to win that there is no chance in hell of getting through.
Ted Cruz is ready to bring big change to Washington—one bill at a time.
Speaking yesterday at Heritage Action’s 2015 Conservative Policy Summit in Washington, D.C., the Texas senator outlined his 10 policy goals for the new Republican-controlled Congress.
In doing so, Cruz stressed the importance of the GOP fulfilling the promises it made last election cycle.
“These are extraordinary times,” he said.

Those of us in the drinking community should take note of that fanatical fringe among us known as Binge Drinkers. I read the news today, oh boy, that one third of the population of Northern Ireland may be counted as binge drinkers. Such radicalism gives us mainstream drinkers a bad name. I fear the backlash from the forces of sobriety.
This scourge is by no means confined to Northern Ireland, but can be found throughout the globe. Russians are said to drink not to get drunk, but to drink to stay drunk. New Orleans, the Mecca of such debauchery, seems to be in a constant state of Mardi Gras. It is as if these bingers wish to establish their own rule over us all. They damn the abstainers as unbelievers and seek to have happy hour law imposed upon the land. We moderates must speak up.
Winston Churchill famously said he took more out of whiskey than it took out of him. We moderates must continue this fight, lest the over-served give our religion of pints and shorts a bad name.

One of the blogs I read regularly is Paul Staines’ Guido Fawkes. Naturally, I do not agree with all the stances and positions he espouses, but enough to warrant an extremely regular return to his viewpoints.
As I said, not all our good ‘plotting’ friend Guido writes is of the best, he tends to concentrate a tad too much on the bubbling Westminster village for my own taste, but, once every so often, his blog comes up with the goods. As in this small treasure from the UKIP conference, and the fascinating video posted within the comments section; reproduced below.
As for the lady speaker, absolutely great. I would hope to see and hear a great deal more from this superb example of a truly-majestic politician!

France had it’s Kuhmbyah moment. Everyone came out and held hands and preached Love to all. Then Monday morning the reality of Frances situation is there for all to see as the French Government sends 10,000 Troops into it’s streets.
After reveling Sunday in the unity of millions marching in the streets against terrorism, the nation awoke Monday to the sight of 10,000 troops fanning out to guard “sensitive sites,” including synagogues, railway stations, airports and tourist attractions. Nearly half the soldiers — about 4,700 — will be assigned to protect France’s 717 Jewish schools, officials said. Some mosques will also receive government protection, following more than a dozen attacks on Islamic buildings since Wednesday.
“It’s an indication of the level of menace we face,” said Col. Benoit Brulen, who stood guard with three rifle-toting soldiers at the Jewish school and synagogue in the city’s 11th arrondissement — not far from the offices of a satirical newspaper where the bloodshed began last week.
The troops’ presence, Brulen said, would continue “as long as the threat exists.”
France Orders 10,000 Troops to Safeguard 'Sensitive Sites'...
Biggest ‘Peacetime’ Security Op…
French police chief commits suicide after attack…
As many as 6 terror suspects still at large…
They say this is the Largest Deployment of Troops since WWII. Sounds like Martial Law….

Check out how many MSM outlets around the world dare show this….the new cover of Charlie Hebdo.

“I’m on my way to Paris to march with the French people” tweeted someone in Downing St, hoping we’d all think it’s the PM. Presumably the same functionary later tweeted that “The march was inspirational.”
Gosh, can you imagine how exciting it must have been for him to gather with well over a million people in Paris? This is how exciting it all was, from the New York Times:
The world leaders — including President François Hollande of France, Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, President Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority and Prime Minister David Cameron of Britain — joined the march in a solemn line. They moved slowly, clasping arms to show solidarity with the victims. The crowd roared in approval.
The crowd roared in approval! How their hearts must have swelled in humble pride. I saw the footage as I pottered around yesterday, flicking between Sky News and the BBC. They showed the gathered leaders arm in arm, slowly and solemnly leading the march. Oh, sorry, hang on, I thought I was a jourmalist for a moment. This, via Moon of Alabama, is what happened (click to increase size) –

I see there’s much jollity over the claim by a US “terrorism expert” on Fox News that Birmingham is “muslim-only city”. Hey, he’s just ahead of his time, or maybe he meant to say Bradford.
I suspect that the reaction (apparently social media, whatever that is, is having lots of fun with the claim) had as much to do with him being on Fox at the time as much as anything, though insofar as it’s an intelligence failure it’s right up there with “Iraqi WMDs” and “the Norks hacked Sony”.
Apparently Emerson rowed back and admitted his error, which makes him more honest than Powell and Obama, adding that Birmingham is “beautiful”. He can’t get anything right at the moment.
It was BBC Radio 5 Live which told me about it, and they went on to produce their own “Fox News Guide to Britain”, including lines such as “Cornwall is where the walls are made of corn”. Oh my sides.
Tony Livesy was the presenter, a former Sunday Sport editor responsible for these magic headlines. You’ll never be in a position to laugh at another broadcaster with that back catalogue sunshine.
In the end I’m grateful to Emerson though. Global death, terror and the systemic raping of thousands of young British women can’t get the BBC to notice muslims, a feat which Emerson achieved.

Been quite busy with family matters, so haven’t had a great deal of time for blogging issues. Having said that, I did scan the newspapers yesterday, and one recurring story caught my eye. This was the tragic aftermath of the rape case concerning the footballer Ched Evans. I call it tragic because all the fury and venom is swirling around whether this amoral drunk should regain or retain his previous sporting, and incidentally, probably exceedingly well-paid; career as a professional football star. However, certain ‘fans’ and other sick supporters of this criminal have been hounding the victim because she had the audacity to lay charges against this ‘totally innocent’ and therefore ‘worthy of their support’ sporting figure to the extent of identifying her name, showing her entering the foyer of the hotel where she was raped by virtue of a video illegally-obtained from the hotel CCTV; and plastering that video all over the self-serving and sick-making Evans website; which I do not link to for fear of giving the creep any more publicity.
Those same ‘supporters’ and ‘fans’, which word should be remembered is a shortened form of the word ‘fanatic’, by continuing to pursue this young woman, have forced her to live under a series of assumed names for over a year, has not been allowed to visit her father over that same year for fear of being recognised and pursued by these same fanatics. They have embarked upon a serious programme of smear, vilification, and trial by internet mob against a young woman whose only ‘crime’ was the fact that she was brave enough to report the attack, and equally brave to proceed to lay charges against a ‘sporting hero’.
Some time back, I wrote about another sporting ‘hero’, and his criminal activities in the field of intimidation of witnesses, as well as suborning perjury. His name was Ravel Morrison, and his prior activities centred around the intimidation of the victim of a robbery; that same robbery being carried out by close friends of the ‘sporting hero’. He was given a twelve month suspended sentence, the legal equivalent of loudly repeating the phrase ‘you naughty, naughty boy’; and the club vowed to stand by him and ‘work through the difficulties’. The only ones to suffer were the family of the victim, who had to move because of threats of violence from yet another section of footballing ‘fans’. That criminally-minded clown is now with West Ham, who must be rueing the second someone thought it would be a good idea to sign the (ahem) ‘troubled youngster’.
Surely, in this day of ample abilities to check, track and pursue online idiots who post menacing messages on Twitter and Facebook; some cash and time could be spent tracing and arresting these super-moronic sports ‘fans’, charging and giving them a fair trial: something which they obviously never thought of doling out to the terrified victim of one man’s drunken anger and libido?

The head of the Paris march today –
As well as Cameron, Holland and Merkel, each of whom are quite intolerant of free speech, the caravan includes prime ministers, presidents and ministers from NATO(!), the EU, Turkey, Egypt, Ukraine (Puppet Poroshenko, whose forces continue to murder oppress and civilians), the USA, Russia, Israel, Mali, Gabon, Niger, Benin, Algeria, Jordan, the Palestinian Authority, Qatar, the UAE and Bahrain.
Really, this lot are marching in defence of free speech and press freedoms. I’d march them off to The Hague. This bunch will tolerate murder, as long as it’s state-funded, and the suppression of free speech all day long.
