MID WEEK OPEN THREAD….

Here you go, a new Open Thread. I see the BBC equates President Trump with Kim Jung Un and chooses to present Trump as the real menace to peace. Sickening.

      The BBC can surpass itself.

      Currently it seems evenly split between devoting every square inch of media estate to publishing who awful it was to let on that beastly Lawson chappie… WHO IS NOT A SCIENTIST!!!! Worse, he was a politician.

      Meanwhile, the other half is in full gush, laying out the W1A Goatse entrance to one Al Gore.

      Al Gore Interview: The former US vice president is tackling climate change with his new film An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power.
      BBC Science News correspondent Rebecca Morelle put your question directly to him.

      I wonder what that question was?
      I’d suggest using Gulag to check out his science and political history but, well, you know.

        I distinctly heard Evan Davis ask a Washington Democratic parcel the other day this
        “In regard of North Korea-what do you think John Kerry would be doing”?
        Only a BBC goon of endless stupidity with a self harming habit would concoct such a question-one that nobody else on this planet would have asked.
        Whenever you think that Newsnight has reached the bottom of the pork barrel?….you get that awful scraping sound, and you know the BBC have yet to hit the nadir of national life.

          I’d expect Kerry to start crying again, Alicia.

          Nearly all dumb politicians cry when they’re caught with their knickers down, and that’s just the blokes.

          Evan Davis is just a weedy little fourth-former piddling about with a Thesaurus under one arm, and a teach-yourself-to read book under the other. I can’t stand him.

    The BBC, in the midst of trying to convince us that the world is about to end because of a spat between Trump and Kim Jung Un, have time to post a quiz on their World News Page: “Who said what? Can you tell the difference between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un?”
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-40891219

    I got 6 out of 8 right and the BBC message was:
    Feeling confused?
    Your score: 6/8
    It’s fine, we all get confused with so many sharp words sometimes.

    Now I thought 6/8 was pretty good. But of course this is all bullsheet. The BBC are purposely hyping an essentially non-story and at the same time is pretending Donald Trump is as mad and bad as Kim Jung Un. BBC fake news at its fineness.

    What transparent feckers the BBC are. It’s incredible how they waste taxpayers money with all this school playground level contrived nonsense.

      I too get fed up with the endless BBC equivocation between Trump and Kim Jong Un.
      How come Trump gets regarded as “bellicose”…as “wading in”?
      Anybody remember what adjectives the BBC chose to use for Kims stuff on wiping out the USA or whatever mad stuff he spouts every month or so?
      Moderate…proportionate…a vulnerable plea to reason?
      I don`t recall Obama getting accused of “meddling” in our EU Referendum…being “spineless” with his red lines…or “derelict” in letting Benghazi US staff die, before blaming a video on Muhammad….”classy” eh?
      Words matter-hope all these loaded descriptors and weasel added-on value judgements by the BBC are getting logged.
      Trump got voted in by a sovereign people…Kim is a fat sickup who blows his own relatives up with shells, throws nerve gas around airlime terminals and has his entire people eating lichen when not being battered to death in his gulags.
      But he`s a Stalinist Commie…which inevitably gets the BBCs juices tearing up in their gussets…despicable.
      Bet North Korea don`t pay THEIR talent as much as we seem to do iwith OUR parallel monoculture of a national broadcaster…at least THEIR ciphers earn their money and are patriotic. Why the heck do we still put up with this?

    Currently (11/1726/08/17) North Korea is moving a number of ICBMs:

    Despite the rhetoric, it appears that Trump has been quietly talking to NK bejind closed doors:
    WASHINGTON (AP) — Beyond the bluster, the Trump administration has been quietly engaged in back channel diplomacy with North Korea for several months, addressing Americans imprisoned in the communist country and deteriorating relations between the long-time foes, The Associated Press has learned.
    https://apnews.com/686ac7c761694b28b67793a1d8297145

    Lets be honest here the current situation is all down to NK. and it recent surge in Missile tests (14 in 2017 alone) which is more than the combined total of launches from 2005 to 2016. people have tried to talk and be nice and each and everytime the NKs have bit the hand that feeds them: Why the new SK president manifesto was to bite the bullet and sit down at the table with NK. All his good intentions have been dashed against the wall by the belligerent NK.

    NK is a hermit country, where human rights is a no-no and where people are executed for the slightest wrong doing, an yet to the likes of the bBC, the US and not NK is at fault. The current bBC article reads like a Hanoi Hannah broadcast:
    Trump warns N Korea that US military is ‘locked and loaded’
    President Donald Trump says the US military is “locked and loaded” to deal with North Korea, ramping up the rhetorical brinkmanship. “Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong-un will find another path!” he tweeted.

    He spoke as Pyongyang accused him of “driving” the Korean peninsula to the “brink of a nuclear war”.
    Moscow said the exchange of threats between Washington and Pyongyang “worry us very much”.
    Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov rated the risk of military conflict as “very high” as he put forward a joint Russian-Chinese plan to defuse the crisis.
    German Chancellor Angela Merkel said there was no military solution, and “an escalation of the rhetoric is the wrong answer.”
    on Friday, North Korea’s official KCNA news agency accused Washington of a “criminal attempt to impose nuclear disaster upon the Korean nation”.
    Pyongyang’s media outlet said America was making “desperate efforts” to test weapons in the Korean peninsula.

    The US is “the mastermind of nuclear threat, the heinous nuclear war fanatic”.

    Anybody under the age of 25 reading that bbC report will automatically presume that the US is in the wrong here.

    The bbC, the schoolboy news agency paid billions in which to spread anti-western Propaganda.

      Hi Pounce, if there is a real story behind this – it can be sure the BBC are missing it. Kim Jung Un and his father before him have continually used propaganda of how they are going to punish the great Satan of the USA and to reunify Korean peninsula. So why have the BBC decided to hype up the story now?

      The BBC seem to have two reasons
      a) as part of their anti-Trump narrative – reducing the complex historical situation in the Korean peninsula to spat between two mad men.
      b) The recent upgrade in the hype was clearly one of several stories to deflect from the Muslim rape gang convictions.

      The real story may be China advising NK – to test Trump & the US resolve. China have their own ambitions over the South China Sea sphere of influence. China is in many ways becoming the new pre- WWI Germany – it is now an economic superpower and it probably wants to translate some of that economic power to push back the US military influence in the Pacific. The presence of the US in South Korea and the waters around it pose a continued threat and irritation to the foreign policy plans of China. China sees this as their neighbourhood and wants the US out.

        Oh, I agree, whilst the left love to talk about how the US went to war in SK in 1950. The simple fact of the matter is, the US had pulled nearly all its troops out of the south and wouldn’t allow Sk to have any tanks or heavy weapons. That is why NK did so well with over 200 T34 tanks, when they invaded. For some strange reason the left don’t mention that. Funny enough the very people who are quite vocal on Sk leadership, never treat the fat little fucker (Grandfather, father and son) with the same disdain.

    I see the cock suckers at the bBC have brought out the worlds secret weapon regards North Korea:
    Jeremy Corbyn urges Trump and Kim to talk ‘in the interests of sanity’

    Err you fat abbott shagger, if you had done your fucking homework, you would know that Trump has already said he is willing to meet with the fat little dictator , that the US has been talking and that in the past NK has stuck 2 fingers up at the world:
    Agreed Framework
    ROKS Cheonan sinking
    Bombardment of Yeonpyeong

    The interesting thing about the latter is that NK used the excuse to hit the Sk Island of Yeonpyeong with an artillery bombardment that they had responded to South Korean shells being fired into North Korean territorial waters. (The monthly SK training exercise actually fired their guns away from NK), however what wasn’t mentioned was that days before the incident, the North Korean government revealed their new uranium enrichment facility. Now with the NK koreans saying they are going to bracket Guam with ICBMs. They can’t complain if the US strikes back.

    But you don’t hear any of the above from the bBC

      Hi Pounce, that story has been the lead headline on the BBC’s Politics news section since midday yesterday. They have updated the story several times and have now added the video story. If you check the comments section of the main headline story you will find the first post is dated 10 Aug 2017 15:13 (the comments section was added after the story had been posted). It is blatant propaganda for Jeremy Corbyn and his party.

    Breaking BBC story. The BBC are absolutely foaming with rage that UKIP have allowed what they call an “anti-Islam” candidate to stand for the UKIP leadership election: Anne Marie Waters. They claim this is going to split the UKIP party with some UKIP MEPs pledging to quit.

    Firstly British MEPS no longer have any influence – with Britain committed to Brexit.
    Secondly if UKIP want to remain valid they need new issues to campaign for. An “anti-Islam” agenda would provide a tiny counter to the overwhelming pro-Islam policies of all the major political parties. We need a party with the balls to counter all the pro-Islam and Sharia creep rhetoric.

    We need to know whether we can influence this leadership battle to ensure an Anne Marie Waters victory. If UKIP also adopt an end the BBC tax policy (or a major effective reform of the BBC coupled with a significant diminishing of its size and associated tax burden), and a policy of ensuring no back-tracking on Brexit – they could pick up a lot of public support.

    Currently the BBC have headlined this story on all their main webpages: their homepage, their news homepage, their UK news homepage, their Politics homepage (it has kicked off their “Jeremy Corbyn as Saviour” story as the top story).

        Re the UKIP election.
        1. Eleven candidates-most of who are nonenties who`ve achieved nothing.
        2. So the winner may only get 20% tops-so what chance has the winner to make sense of the UKIP pantomine horse.
        3. Ballot papers will go out before the hustings and candidates have even toured the country.
        4. Most of the candidates are bureaucrats and cringing wannabe Tory landfill.
        5. Any party that lets the like of Woolf go, that allowed the Nutall “Amateur Hour” Show to proceed when it had the “once in a lifetime” opportunity to wipe Labour out in Stoke…well, it BADLY needs an Anne Marie Waters.
        They will collapse into irrelevance without her knowing the nature of the Left and the power of the feminist gun that will hammer Islam if she`s given it.

        Her manifesto is fair-not great-but she`s the Momentum Candidate that could bring Tommy and the like into national debate.
        If we don`t get her-well, we`ll need to beg Aaron Banks to fund an online wrecking ball to smash the party system a la Five Star in Italy.
        It`s Anne Marie or muerte…

            Can`t agree with all of this Yasser.
            1. The Pegida thing?…never noticed or cared…a comedy effort to parallel a mirror image of the EU, as imagined in the UK….no problem with that, certainly no indicator of her fitness to herd cats…and , rest assured leading UKIP is that at the minute-has been ever since it was created.
            Farage never led it remember?…the NEC prevented him from doing so, which is why he`s not there.
            Nigel-like Jacob or Boris-is simply the hook of authenticity that British people love, and the jealous bitter nasty left despise-so we like them all the more!
            2. No disrespect to nonentities of course-did see one good one at the hustings..big black guy from the GLA I think…but , as I say-if you want the beehive in knots, AMW is the only game in town…ex Labour, Irish feminist woman with a punchy track record with all the right friends for us in Tommy etal.
            3. The BBC seem exercised and the bloke who punched the brilliant Steven Woolf has resigned now she`s a candidate-what else do you need to know to back the fact that AMW will stir up a lot of interest and confuse the idiot Islamic left…especially the Sinn Fein Momentum types who know her from Streatham( Chukka worse nightmare in small Doc Martens?-come on!).
            The big gentle black bloke DID mention “cultural marxism” at our meeting here in Dorset…so this may be Kurten.
            If so-we`ve got our dream ticket, as long as Brexit Trump, Islam and the BBC are agreed upon-sensed only AMW would be the insurgent when the cameras were turned off, so she`s the leader I want.
            From one outstanding nonentity to another eh Yasser?

            PS-got to laugh with “MEP Mike Hookem” resigning-what IS it with these death bed shows of gesture?…like Obama and Hollande and their anti Brexit threats on the BBC last year?…deluded sods!…who knew that the bin of history had so many ventriloquists hiding behind it?
            Ah bless-the BBC do care…poor Mike eh?…with 1 year and 229 days remaining on his warranty too!

    Note that the Socialist Worker referred to the Muslims who are having to clear their streets of rubbish in Birmingham as a “scab army”. The Muslims are called the Bearded Bruvs I think.
    If there was a case of Muslims smashing in the heads of the Lefties of Brum, then this would be it.
    Islamophobia I`d have thought.
    The natives of Birmingham are perfectly entitled to show some “community spirit” to clear their streets seeing as the union brothers won`t bother their arses to do it.
    In this case, hope the Muslims don`t take this insult.

          Pertelote – I suspect that if an ostensibly establishment friendly “black face” such as Trevor Phillips had not have not picked this subject up – I expect we would all still be sitting here complaining about what is going on but being dismissed as islamaphobic or waycist by the likes of the London Emir or or Fatbott.

          We have seen this in the way Tommy Robinson (and in fact Griffin the NF bloke) were/have been treated for telling the truth.

          Whether we like it or not we should be grateful for people like Phillips (though an ex race hustler)

      I understand that the Moslems cleaning the streets are doing a leftie thing – working on behalf of the local community with an objective of gathering local support. These Moslems turn out to include a number of jihadi supporters.
      The left are terribly divided on this. Anti working class if you clean up the rubbish, and racist if you call the volunteer moslems strike breaking scabs.

    “He/She, I’m not sure what it is..?”
    We are talking about Hero the Hedgehog – the gender ambiguous official mascot of the current London Stadium Athletics (for-godsake-when-will-they-ever-get-over-the-2012-Olympics) Games. Happily sponsored by no end of innovative and experimental performance enhancing pharmaceuticals, umbrella manufacturers, Norovus and, of course, our BBC. No seriously, one way or another this latest diversity fest is public funded.
    But what a happy happenstance how extraordinarily on message is our rainbow-vested foam suited mascot for the increasingly transsexual BBC. Sadly not pure serendipity: for we find that it was Blue Peter which invited their present miniscule viewership to design said mascot. And we know what we know about Blue Peter competitions – they’re about as above board as a Russian athlete and as genuine as a modern games competitor’s passport. Did I hear 200 competing athletes had recently altered their nationality – not on the BBC I didn’t.
    Oh the hilarious antics of Hero the gender-neutral Hedgehog… You remember the Eurovision Song Contest in the years prior to it going all gay pride? Well the interval between the song performances and the EU-budget-style unaudited point allocation segment… of course you do, it went on for about four hours? The awkward interval would have viewers pine for some advertising on the BBC as we were too often treated to a European comedy act.
    Oh dear, the continental concept of comedy must have parted from ours about the time of the last ice age. (This fact will be rapidly dawning on anyone following closely our Brexit negotiations). The interval performance would inevitably consist of very annoying infantile yet arty balletic slapstick – something akin to a cross between Marcel Marceau and the Chuckle Brothers.
    There you have it viewers – all offending Britishness washed out in the rain and replaced with a BBC diversity rinsed and mangled makeover. If this is a glimpse of what the future holds..

    The Minister, Ben Bradshaw, interviewed by Humphries BBC ‘Today’. He agrees with former head of MI5 that we are in for 20/30 years of terror, if not more. Both Bradshaw and Humphries straining well to avoid mentioning islam. All that straining – can’t be good for their haemorrhoids. Bradshaw tells the listener that the terrorists are IS sympathisers and very few in number despite the figure of 23,000 mentioned regularly. This also avoiding the surveys conducted that conclusively reveal that over 75% of the whole muslim population in the UK is in agreement with the principles of IS. Nooooo mention of that needless to say.
    Apparently, it really is the duty of, not just organs of the State including local authorities that need to watch carefully and report their suspicions, the public must play its part as ‘whistleblowers’ as well. Humphries fails to ask what should be done about the opprobrium brought down immediately by the islamic BBC and media on anyone who identifies a suspicious muslim under the term, “Islamaphobe’ and “Racist”. As if to prove that point, minutes later during the news bulletin, and ignoring the anti-muslim views of Professor Dawkins (no mention whatever) – http://www.breitbart.com/video/2017/08/11/dawkins-muslims-arent-being-oppressed-by-critics-muslims-are-oppressed-by-islam/ – we have to hear about one of eleven contenders to lead UKIP, one Anne Marie Walters who campaigns to have Sharia Law outlawed. No information on the other ten contenders? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-40902796
    But, shouldn’t our national broadcaster support the outlawing of Sharia Law? Yes, but, yes but, our islamic editors wouldn’t support that. No discussion about the topic in the ‘Quiet Room’ when the news editors go to pray – the inevitability of an islamic caliphate proceeds nicely………

    Compare and contrast… When a crime is suspected of having been committed by a member of a preferred ethnic group, the BBC are curiously quiet. Often the nature of the crime or the location gives strong clues as to the sort of person or people who may have been responsible, yet all we hear are that “police are looking for a man and urge the public to report sightings of the (non-descript) man”. So compare that with this comprehensive description of a suspect:
    “He is described as white, 5ft 9in tall, with cropped hair and stubble. He was last seen wearing a red Nike sweatshirt with a white logo on it. He was also wearing white trainers and dark grey trousers or tracksuit bottoms. Detectives added that he had recently shaved off his hair and eyebrows.”
    Okay, they forgot to mention what he had for breakfast or his favourite TV show, but otherwise it is the level of detail that one might expect to read in such a report if it is available. Now, I wonder what is different in this particular case?

    Just caught the end of a BBC TV news item that, as far as I could tell, was claiming that England’s villages are not entirely English. It was clear from the tone that this was considered “a good thing”.

    Well, by and large, they still seem pretty English to me but perhaps that’s because any foreigners living there have no interest in changing them. I don’t see what harm a few French, German or Polish people would do. Their villages aren’t so bad either.

    As almost everyone outside the government, the police farce and the MSM understand, it’s not a question of who is living there, as who is not living there. Yet.

        If we are all descended from Africans it proves that evolution is amazing. So many of us have progressed while Africa stagnates. Was discussing this with a Left-wing African “academic” yesterday who, naturally, claims that the failure of all African countries ( at least he admitted they have all failed ) was due to colonialism . No reply to my question ” so everything was fine before the white man arrived ? “. Also no answer to my question ” Why do most Gambians say to me ” we wish we were still a British colony “. Had to block him when he started to racially abuse me.

          Grant, I keep struggling to remember which of the southern African kingdoms is the oldest Royal Democracy in the world. I have a notion it matches England & Wales in time scale back to Magna Carta, which was far from the start of democracy for England but ended some of the scrapping and underpinned it.

          I spent half an hour on a map and wandering Wiki not so long ago but couldn’t get a definitive answer. Kind of ironic but the BBC told me about it many years ago back when you could learn lots of good things – all the time – from Radio 4.

          I recall that once a year that the King reviews his progress with tribal elders from all over the country. They tell him what is going on, what he’s doing right, what could be better. I have a notion that anyone in the country (indigenous) can come to the Council and petition the Elders and the King. They discuss whether the petitioner has a good idea, how it could be made to work and if the Elders agree, they ask the King to agree and sanction it. The King has absolute say but collective wisdom is used to good effect, about eight hundred years of good effect.

          I have another notion it is one of South Africa’s Protectorates but could be wrong.

          Please can you help me out?

            I am not sure about that, but it seems likely. West African villages and provinces have a similar system today. But it is certainly not “one man one vote ” , and certainly not “one woman , one vote ” ! There are areas where the discussions are held called ” Bantaba ” in Mandinka , which also has many other meanings .

            Possibly, where the word “banter ” comes from.

            But the village headman or province chief has the final decision. The tension arises with central government when they contradict a decision. I could go on , but it slightly reminds me of some countries closer to “home ” !

    I’m hearing lots of righteous indignation on Radio 4 (I don’t do TV) about Anne Marie Waters being in the candidate list for the UKIP leadership contest. It’s like they expect all of us listening to nod and agree that being anti islam is beyond the pale . There is smug satisfaction that other candidates disapprove of her anti-islam stance and some worries about how that would affect the vote for UKIP.

    What’s depressing for me is the assumption that islam is benign and no right thinking person would oppose it. What’s more depressing is that people probably wouldn’t vote for an anti-islam and anti-sharia party as they should.

    Also, in taking this tone, the R4 newsreaders ( and the rest of the media but I don’t know about that yet) may be influencing the thinking and attitudes of the listeners. People want to regard themselves, and have others regard them, as nice people who have nice thoughts. This drip drip strategy from the media might be having a subliminal effect on people’s opinions.

      After the Socialist worker fellow uttered nonsense after nonsense, neither challenged nor interrupted by Eddie, the lady was asked how responsible was the US for the problems in Venezuela. She remained staggeringly calm as she pointed out the problems had nothing to do with the US, and everything to do with the policies of Chavez and his successor. Not able to hear her reply, Eddie pressed on with his questions about US actions to undermine the country … at which point I turned off.

      Surely to Betsy , there`s plenty Americans in London who`d have done this justice.
      Borderline racist in its dreadful portrayal of Americans too-never heard so many dumb accents since Daphne Moons idiot English family showed up in “Frasier”. Won`t slag off the Yanks again now!
      I think they`d decided that granny and Ellie Mae Clampitt from the Beverley Hillbillies would do for the women too. Thought the fashion was dud too, but that`s another post…those bloomers were not what I`d have been wearing back then in Okie, I`m sure.
      No…reckon they`ve all dumbed down…it`ll be Brexit I expect. Always is.
      Sorry Brissles, always agree with you usually. Maybe I`m still in grieving mode after the death of Glen Campbell. Keep snivelling over Wichita Lineman reruns. His last live ones are keeping me up too late blubbering.

          You have to follow the Classic FM definition these days: “Anything with violins”, otherwise you’re a snob. There’s virtually nothing you can say about other genres in a classical context without that coming up. It needs its own Godwin’s Law.

          I believe the usual justification is that there is nothing formal saying that the Proms must be exclusively classical, which seems to be missing the point. I think we all know what the BBC is up to – squeeze out the DWEM stuff a little at a time and hope that nobody notices.

          I suppose the John Wilson Orchestra comes closer than Tom Jones (1 September), as it plays Gershwin and such like. Nothing against Tom Jones, he’s very good at what he does, but why here? (And why did I feel obliged to insert that caveat?)

          And BTW, St Sepulchre-without-Newgate in London, laughably known as the musicians’ church, has told the choirs and orchestras who hire it that they are no longer welcome. The church actually holds Henry Wood’s ashes. I understand that there is an evangelical group which pays more for hirings than the musicians can afford.

Admittedly it was a tad over the top even with the diverse casting; and I did expect more John Wilson as he was the reason I tuned in, but I took it for what it was, a chance to enjoy some good music and singing.

    On the BBC TV news tonight, Kate Silverton refers to “white nationalists” protesting about the removal of a statue of “a pro-slavery general” in Charlottesville. Listen, Kate, the man’s name was Robert E. Lee, one of the greatest military commanders in history, a decent and honourable man who was as respected by the North as he was by the South. His primary motivation was not to defend slavery, which he acknowledged was “a moral and political evil” but to remain loyal to his home state of Virginia when it seceded from the Union. Southerners are proud of Robert E. Lee and are justly outraged by the plan to remove his statue. Kate Silverton, you could have at least called him by his name.

But don’t expect some BBC airhead like Kate Silverton ( whoever she is, never heard of her ) to spend any time researching the subject. For thick Beeboids everything has to be kept simple. Union good , Confederacy bad. 4 legs good , 2 legs bad . Beeboids are idiots.

        As you say Grant, Lee was probably the best tactician of them all. All-American hero Lincoln, inconveniently, while believing in the slow emancipation of slaves, did not agree that they were the equals of whites, nor that they should serve on juries.
        Kate Silverton is best defined as apparently having some frog genes – the amphibian, not the nation.

      Lincoln was, indeed, for much of his life, a white supremacist. In his 1858 debate with Sen. Steven Douglas, Lincoln maintained, “And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race.”

      The American civil war was largely about land to the west and its ownership. I seem to remember that Lincoln signed a document to have all blacks exported to another part of the world.

      Zelazek,I agree, General Lee was a very honourable man and history has falsely maligned him IMO. The BBC should recognise Lee’s loyalty and integrity. But there again, the BBC wouldn’t recognise integrity if it hit it in the face.

        Lincoln was a great man , but his attitude to slavery and black people was always ambivalent. He tended to trim his opinion depending on the audience. It was not he who saved the Union. It was Grant and those brave soldiers who had been so badly led before and then had faith in one of the great military Commanders, US Grant.

          Agreed Grant,
          Grant (not you Grant) is now praised for having a strategic view of the war, rather than focusing solely on the area around Virginia, as Lee so often did. And he gets credit for believing in civilian control of the military. When some of his officers were upset about black soldiers serving in the Union Army, Grant “said, ‘Look, this is the policy of the government, and the Army has to carry it out. … If there’s anyone who can’t deal with it, resign right now,’”

          Grant seems to be a more genuine person than Lincoln. Lincoln although clever seems a bit shady.

            Grant’s memoirs are worth reading . He comes over as straight down the line. And his soldiers had confidence in him and he always put them first. I think he is one of the unsung military heroes and a very modest man. I think I am right in saying that he only met Lincoln twice. Once when he was appointed and second time after victory !

            It wasn’t really a Civil War as such but the War of Southern Independence, since the Confederacy didn’t seek to take over the entire country they just wanted to secede from the Union and form their own; as the original thirteen colonies had done when they seceded from Great Britain and had done so for the same reason that the southern states sought to leave the Union: tariffs, not the institution of slavery – which would have ended anyway without the need for war.

            The interesting comparison between the generals Lee and Grant, was that the former freed his slaves before hostilities between North and South commenced whereas the latter maintained possession of his slaves even after the war ended; his response when questioned as to why he refused to free them: “Good help is hard to find these days.”

    Heres another, bbc luvvie who has watch a movie.

    On Friday, the white nationalists held lit torches – which some observers described as a reference to the Ku Klux Klan – and chanted “White lives matter” as they marched through the University of Virginia in the city.

    And this ”anti-protest protestor” i.e. Antifa, …………….”””fighting” hate of all kinds, with hate of all kinds,………cos she is at war man innit …………….to fucking stupid to realise the nutjob hypocrisy.
    And this little nugget about ”them not having a message, then in the next sentence stating the polar opposite, probably exited to be on foriegn tv.

    Shiquan Rah, a 21-year-old demonstrator who had joined the counter-protest said about the far-right groups: “These people don’t have a message, their message is hate and violence. This is a spiritual war we’re in.”

    And then the devious bastards say this.

    Violent clashes erupted between far-right groups and counter-protesters who have also gathered in the city.
    At least two people have been injured, police say.
    Police have fired tear gas against demonstrators and said that arrests had been made after a declaration of unlawful assembly at Emancipation Park.

    And the video is of antifa and black lives matter flags and placards being pepper sprayed and arrested,……for kicking off on the police……only aggro as usual coming from the BBC’s lefty rent-a-mobs.

I suppose the Beeb would prefer him to act like Barry and just say ‘make no mistake’ a lot. There was a more truth I think in the response by the Governor of Guam when Trump telephoned him – he sounded like he was in the Residency at Lucknow and had just heard ‘The Campbells are Coming’ on the bagpipes*.

    Also, double murder in Golders Green, London NW11 – suspect clearly named as Cohen, with pictures and descriptions issued, presumably so that we didn’t get any ideas about any other religions.

      The aptly-named Cox has an obscure academic record. I have never been able to find out any original research that he did. All books that he has written are co-authored. I suspect that he is a bullshitter and a fake. Perfect for the BBC.

      His Wikipedia entry says that he has supervised some PhD students . That is normal in academia. Most genuine academics would not even bother to put that in a Wikipedia entry.

      As I say, I think he is a fake.

        According to a publishing/tv agent friend of mine, media friendly scientists are very hard to get hold of. Most of them are too busy doing proper work to get involved, look and sound weird and/or are a little bit ‘on the spectrum’ and don’t come across well on the air. The holy grail for telly people is, apparently, an attractive female mathematician.

          I am not an academic , but I have had many dealings with them. The usual hideaway is ” PhD thesis, unpubl “. However, an unpublished PhD thesis should still be available in a university library. Many years ago, I tried to access Gordon Brown’s PhD thesis to no avail. It is a murky business.

      Don`t get by here as much as I`d like to-it is the scrumpy season near enough and I`m still counting the bad body language bruises from Tolpuddle.
      Yes, think we need a few of us to form a steering committee on topics here-Pounce to lead anything military, our many Green Warriors to keep us up to date on the likes of Lord Mighty Nigel Lawsons work etc.
      Great scattergun fun here-but Dave S and his link to Sultan Knishs work on McMasters derailing of the Trump Revolution in the USA deserves some feeding into UKIP/Alt -Right links I`d say…otherwise we`re getting grumpy individually, and not really turning over the evil that is the BBC and Channel 4.
      This week for example
      1. Universities preferring rich thick foreign students to the white trash that fund the VCs yacht at Bolton Poly.
      2. The General Lee Righteous Protest in Charlotteville, and the BBCs response
      3. Trump/North Korea bias
      4. Junckers free pass on his piggery.

      There`ll be plenty more-James Damore at Google also a Daniel Greenfield piece of brilliance.
      Off to the wifes church barbecue now , but this site keeps me right.
      Anne Marie and Jacob Rees Mogg, free Tucker Carlson and Mark Steyn?…these are good times, enjoy them as we can.

      Grant for Africa correspondent and Brissles to write the obits for Van, Bob, Joni, Keef and all the others to come…agreed 100% that we`ve not got over Phil Everly.

          With your African links-you can be either a Didier Drogba or a George Weah…or Weay-Hay if you do a good Jack Douglas impression.
          I`ll get that team yet-failing that, we`ve got a good five-a-side that may yet be the Alt-Rights Harlem Globetrotters…well Wessex boundaries with a Megabus to London or Perth maybe?

        Stuart Agnew is no expert on Islam so easily can be made to look a fool. UKIP should have sent with him an expert on Islam (perhaps who is also an ex-Muslim), or had someone who lived under Sharia Law – such as a Christian Yazidi refugee.

        Jihadism in the bigger sense is the struggle to defend and spread Islam and Sharia Law. In that sense even western feminists who claim to be Muslim and wear the burqa can be said to be jihadists when they wear that burqa in Britain.

        I know and probably you know more about Islam than Stuart Agnew. But we are not politicians – so we would probably have been mauled by Nolan and the “Muslim voice” legal representative they had on his show.

        You need to be an expert on Islam as well as politically astute to handle Nolan and the various Islamic legal defenders.

    I try to watch as little of the BBC news output as possible but of course I have to watch it sometimes just to remind myself of why I don’t watch it all the time.
    Is Laura Bicker effin wise? The report from Charlottesville on the news tonight at 10.30 was concluded by this US correspondent condemning Trump as a failure because he didn’t directly attack the ‘Alt-right’ for their role in this violence and the unfortunate death of a protestor. A headcase in a Corvette drove into a crowd but hasn’t yet been identified, that I know of, and so, quite rightly, Trump unequivocally condemned the violence from both sides, stating that violence at protests had been an issue for a while and that it was unacceptable. Not good enough for Laura, no real surprise there.
    Her presentation though was awful, verging on the manic, finding it hard to contain her vitriol for Trump, who in her mind, I have no doubt, is directly responsible for this death. Her face, try and find the report, is full of impotent aggression, tensed and twisted. She reminded me of Alan Rickmans witch in Robin Hood, Geraldine McEwan on speed. You really have to laugh at these people, they’re not just right.
    I’m going to watch a bit of MotD now so I don’t have to look at it again until the start of next season.

    So far the “UKIP has selected an anti-Islam candidate” story has lasted longer on the BBC news homepage than their “Asian paedophile gang” story which has now been buried.

    New Sharia Law introduced into California – when arresting a hijabed Muslim woman, the woman must be dealt with by a female police officer and not a man: “Female police officers are now required to remove headscarves, away from male officers and inmates, and only “when necessary for officer safety”, Long Beach assistant city attorney Monte Machit told the Los Angeles Times.”

    This change in the law was a victory for the “Council on American-Islamic Relations” who took up a test case in order to get the state law changed.
