Start the Week Open Thread 10 September 2018

its 200 days to our WTO Brexit. So the Far Left BBC will go all out to subvert the democratic vote . Meanwhile the Swedes have shown that they do not approve of their politicians destroying their own country – a liberal poison which spread across the West unchecked up until our Brexit vote .

    In 2013 Ed Miliband played a crucial role in blocking any military action against Assad in Syria. The BBC rarely mentions his name and his pivotal role in connection to the disastrous outcome of that decision. Yet again another example of the BBC covering up for a Labour leader whose behaviour seriously undermines national security and the world order.

    A few days ago the House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee published report on the consequences of our failure to act and a demand for an inquiry into that fatal decision in 2013 and the consequences that stem from it. Hear anything on the BBC? No. A police officer says cuts make crime rise and the BBC is there reporting it on Today or make it frontpage news that police have a dictionary of teen slang words…but a Parliamentary committee’s report on one of the most important and serious issues effecting the world right now and…nothing.

    Here’s a taste of what it says….pretty damning of our inaction in 2013….

    ‘It has become clear through our inquiry that the price of inaction in the case of Syria has been unacceptably high. Starting as a peaceful protest in March 2011 the Syrian conflict has subsequently claimed an estimated 400,000 lives, and led to eleven million people, half the Syrian population, being forced to leave their homes.

    Haid Haid, a Research Fellow at the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation at King’s College London, identified the failure of the international community to respond to the use of chemical weapons in 2013 as a turning point.

    The broader implications of the failure of the UK to intervene more robustly has had repercussions, overwhelmingly and fatally in Syria of course, but also beyond. Farouq al Habib, a Director at the Mayday Rescue Foundation, told us in evidence that “hundreds, maybe millions, of refugees would not have been displaced if something had been done in 2013.”

    The international community’s reluctance to intervene at an earlier stage created an opportunity for Russia and Iran to deepen their involvement.

    The international community’s failure to act and intervene meaningfully in Syria has created opportunities for the regime and other actors in the region to commit atrocity crimes, including the continued use of chemical weapons.

    The UK must bear its share of the responsibility for this and examine the repercussions of its decisions not to do more on its own and collectively. To this end we call on the Government to establish an independent inquiry into the decision-making processes that led to non-intervention in Syria, the recent airstrikes notwithstanding, and the lessons that can be learnt to prevent similar humanitarian crises happening in the future or to respond more effectively to such crises which may arise. ‘

        Yeah got to hand it to Miliband…400,000+ dead, 11 million refugees so many of whom ended up in Europe with all that entails and Russia and Iran in the ascendancy once again as well as the rise of the Islamic State. Not a bad scorecard for one man’s moral grandstanding that left a vacuum in international geopolitics filled by the worst possible players.

          If you remember at the time Cameron was salivating at the mouth at the prospect of bombing Syria, John Kerry was touring the world trying to get support for a coalition against Syria.

          Who was responsible for gas attacks?

          Miliband should be congratulated for averting another pointless NATO exercise. Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, How many fuck ups do we need?

            Obama’s and Cameron’s plan was to defeat Assad and close the Russian naval base in Syria. To that end we would be the air support for ISIS. After the HoC vote we couldn’t be directly involved but by supporting the rebels with money and weapons we ensured the continuation of the conflict, the involvement of Russian and Iranian military forces and the creation of millions of refugees.

            If we had kept out the Syrian government would have retaken control very quickly, without the disasterous consequences we now see.

      This was a subject dear to the heart of Alan, late of this parish, and one which most(?) of his readers didn’t agree with him.

      Ed Miliband changed his published opinion more to fit in with what he thought would boost his electoral chances. He joins a long list of Labour leaders that the BBC has forgotten about. The foundation of all our current problems being down to Thatcher and our failure to resolve them being down to May.

      This HoC committee is just churning the dust. ‘The International Community’ is the UN and that is like herding sheep. The UK armed forces haven’t got the capability to manage fishing in the channel let alone carry out meaningful operations in Syria. I for one have no wish to see our lads and lasses lose their lives just so a few MPs can bask in moral righteousness. Let the Arabs fix their own problems.

    Well, Tina, my love, you should open your eyes to the reality of so-called ‘Democracy’ in this green and wonderful land of freedom. This beacon of ‘democracy’ is no longer (if it ever, frankly, existed). Your topic of the day should be seen against the background of disappearing rights, multicultural legal remedies and no-evidence based ‘hate speech’. I’ll not get on to the worth of voting as my blood pressure is already too high. With regard to the last point, It’s time our Tina had a deep and meaningful conversation with the likes of Sourby et al.

    Negotiation outlook for May: Moderate or rough. Clouds gathering. Storms, thunder, lightning, gales and Tory splits ahead. Overall depression. Previously delayed recession now immanent. Overblown.
    Tailbacks predicted: Dover: 30 miles long and rising. Good.
    Cliff Edge: emphasised. Sir Cliff rescue helicopter – no overfly alert warning in force.
    Transatlantic disappointment palpable. Employment numbers rising. Present incumbent still deplorable.
    Trafalgar: Square, patriotic monuments declining.
    Tahrir Square: Faeroes. Arab Spring: previous bright outlook projections reversed – becoming choppy. Heading west rapidly. Strongly advise dress moderate.
    Southern Powerhouse, Northern Outhouse.
    Bill Bailey Trough. Sandi Toksvig, Low, Viking. Trough.
    Pay visibility foggy. Outsourced. Ronald MacDonald’s Way.
    Carrie Gracey, Forties, far east returning, doing Rockall, turning rough. Fastnet – Six figures.
    Savile, Dogger, BBC spokesman?: Now just off South East Iceland low visibility and disappearing later.
    Record breaking temperatures: FitzRoy Castle.
    Minor warming a few degrees – Coastal panic stations.
    Wind turbines proliferating both on and off shore, cost very high. Fair?
    Advise switching to another Channel Light programme. Thames : now defunct. Sky: moving left rapidly.
    And that’s the end of the warning.

    Hate Speech:
    “Do you believe that society should draw the line at all when it comes to limitations on hate speech?

    No. Hate speech laws are wrong. The question – not a question, but THE question – is ‘who gets to define hate?” That’s not to say there’s no such thing as hate speech – clearly there is. Hate speech laws repress, and I mean that in the psycho-analytical sense. They drive [hate speech] underground. It’s not a good idea, because things get ugly when you drive them underground. They don’t disappear, they just fester, and they’re not subject to correction. I made these videos, and they have been subject to a tremendous amount of correction over the last six weeks. I don’t just mean from my public response, but also partly from the university’s response, partly from a group of friends who have been reviewing my videos and criticizing them to death. This is why free speech is so important. You can struggle to formulate some argument, but when you throw it out into the public, there’s a collective attempt to modify and improve that. So with the hate speech issue – say someone’s a Holocaust denier, because that’s the standard routine – we want those people out there in the public so you can tell them why they’re historically ignorant, and why their views are unfounded and dangerous. If you drive them underground, it’s not like they stop talking to each other, they just don’t talk to anyone who disagrees with them. That’s a really bad idea and that’s what’s happening in the United States right now. Half of the country doesn’t talk to the other half. Do you know what you call people you don’t talk to? Enemies.”

      The major problem is that when someone vocalises hate and lies against people on the radio or on the TV it has the potential of being heard by thousands if not millions of people. Telling them after the event that these views are unfounded and dangerous, even if it is done straight away( which is very unlikely in any case), doesn’t lessen the impact that the lies and hatred stated out loud had in the first place . Their hateful views have now become acceptable simply because they have been said . No amount of going against slander and lies will put those lies back.

        The endless harrying of Trump and Brexit types is used to stop them defending the country or developing any kind of policy or considered thinking.
        The BBC and Woodward etc therefore aid and abet the Russians, Chinese and Islam by sniping, draining, smearing and wearing down national resistance to migration, Islamic Supremacy and the New Fashizm , as with Boris Jacob, Nigel and our Tommy.
        These heroes need our active support and a willingness to fight for them and their values-or else each one will end up like Martin Luther King or raving, harmless versions of David Icke.
        This is an endless war of attrition by those we elected or who speak for us like Katie Hopkins. That swamp needs draining,and we need to do far more to help them thrive. Or else we`ll deserve our burqas and Venezuelan banknotes we`re due.

    Nice little chat between Justin and Bob, I think we can call him Bob as we’re on such good terms and he’s clearly no fan of the ‘uniquely awful Trump’, on Today this morning.

    Can’t really call it an interview with Bob Woodward as it was merely a stream of sly anti-Trump invective, half-truths and loaded interpretations of his own book from ‘Bob’ and rather than challenge any of that Justin actually tried to trump him with his own additional unsavoury comments about Trump such as ‘unstable’ and ‘uniquely awful’ as well as cheerleading ‘The Resistance’ or ‘the renegade movement to protect the country’ as ‘Bob’ called it….otherwise known as ‘The Deep State’ that’s protecting its own vested interests.

    ‘Bob’ suggested Trump had no idea a letter about trade deals with South Korea was stolen from his desk as he just wasn’t organised and didn’t know what was happening around him, he also suggested Trump had no understanding of the need to protect national security. How did ‘Bob’ know this? Well Trump asked questions such as why did they need so many troops in South Korea…apparently this is a dumb question rather than one any new President might ask…after all hasn’t the US withdrawn most of its troops from Europe now? Situations change and responses change…best not just keep on assuming everything is going great and the status quo must remain as ‘Bob’ seems to think is the right policy. ‘Bob’ also gave in evidence the fact that Trump dared to question the contributions of European allies to the Nato budget…oh, the folly…does he not understand? Hmmm…well just about everyone agrees that many other rich Nato members are not paying their way and are getting a free ride from US defence spending. Germany and Canada are paying a third of what the US does in terms of GDP….as this BBC graph shows…..

    _102470532_nato_spend_v6-nc.png

    And what of that claim that a letter about a trade deal with South Korea was ‘stolen’ from Trump’s desk so that he couldn’t sign it? Would that be the trade deal Trump agreed way back in March this year and is about to sign off now?….

    Trump gets South Korean concessions in first trade deal

    ‘President Donald Trump has reached the first trade deal of his administration, getting South Korea to make a few changes to a six-year-old pact he said was a horrible deal.

    Trump had largely criticized the previous agreement largely because of the U.S.’s auto trade deficit with South Korea, which has grown significantly since the deal went into force in 2012. At his insistence, the two countries launched talks last year to renegotiate the pact. ‘

    The deal is to be finalised in the near future…so far from not understanding what is going on and not being able to keep a coherent long term strategy going Trump seems quite able to operate without the help of ‘Bob’ thanks very much anyway and do so over extended periods with complex issues.

    What did the stolen letter say? It was classified as ‘pre-decisional/deliberative’…so not ready to be sent. It stated that the US would end the trade agreement already in place in 180 days…but..and this is the important part…the US was prepared to negotiate on economic issues of concern to both countries. In other words the letter was merely sabre rattling to kick start trade talks and give the US an edge…done in the usual Trump style.

    You’ve got to think there is no way in hell Trump would forget such a significant letter and decision about what would be his first trade deal. Is ‘Bob’ seriously suggesting when Trump came to agree the deal this March he didn’t suddenly think ‘Heck, wasn’t there something I meant to say? Surely I wasn’t going to agree to this….ah, shucks, do it anyway!’ Someone is lying. ‘Bob’?

    Justin didn’t bother bringing in anyone to contradict ‘Bob’, well why would he because Justin does such a good job himself questioning ‘Bob’s’ narrative, doesn’t he? No mention at all that people to whom ‘Bob’ attributes comments deny them emphatically.

    Here the Washington Post, no friend of Trump’s, does bring us two people central to the book along with their denials….nice if the BBC could have mentioned such denials…as well as the book’s claims being refuted and discredited by General (Secretary of Defense) James Mattis and General (Chief of Staff) John Kelly.

    ‘Two former Trump administration officials on Tuesday criticized journalist Bob Woodward’s new book, “Fear,” as the president continues to fume over its portrayal of a White House in disarray.

    Former White House staff secretary Rob Porter and former National Economic Council director Gary Cohn issued statements on the book Tuesday afternoon. Both were first reported by the news site Axios.

    “Having now read Bob Woodward’s Fear, I am struck by the selective and often misleading portrait it paints of the President and his administration,” Porter said.

    In one anecdote reported by Woodward, Trump ordered Porter to draft a letter on withdrawing the United States from the North American Free Trade Agreement in the spring of 2017. Fearing that such a move would lead to economic and diplomatic calamity, Porter reportedly spoke with Cohn, who told him he would “just take the paper off his desk,” referring to Trump.

    In his statement, Porter did not address any specific episodes reported in the book but said the suggestion that materials were “stolen” from Trump’s desk “misunderstands how the White House document review process works.”’

    Anyone without counter-terrorist check clearance is not allowed to work in Parliament but Awan has breached this rule by working in the Leader of the Opposition’s office, according to HuffPost.”

    Watching loose women today, of the 8 wimmin on the show (6 on the show with 2 replaced by 2 other wimmin half way through) the leaver (kemi badenoch who sat next to jo Coburn) was sticking up for the brino chequers proposal meaning that she wasn’t much of a leaver really.
    No male guests on the panel again.

    I thought Andrew Neill was going to appear on this show even if it was only on a Wednesday as in the daily politics but no sign of him.

      Got to hand it to Mr bone – once thugs start going after the young kids of politicians they really are playing something without an end game .

      I haven’t got time for many politicians because I blame their type for ruining our country while we had to sit , watch and say nothing in order to avoid the ritual accusation of racism.

      But their kids are not ‘in the game ‘ as it were .

      If the MSM doesn’t come down really hard on the vermin who did this then we know that any of that grief spewed out about a labour mp who got killed by a madman was just false .

    BBC News Channel may or may not have forgotten the 911 anniversary yesterday but they are keen to recall the financial crash of 2008. They are actually dating it to 15th September with the fall of Lehman Brothers – so don’t be surprised if we have a few days of this. Anyway it’s a fine opportunity to send a reporter down to a market in the East Midlands where remarkably she finds some chap to pontificate about falling wages, food banks and austerity.

    Lordie, what larks in the afternoon
    The authoritive and well-upholstered Simon McCoy on the News Channel is given the job of dousing the BBC bucket of cold water on Brexiteers’ suggestions for the Irish border.

    BBC editors have found a young bespectacled academic lass at Queen’s varsity Belfast to rubbish any solution; basically other than Remain.

    Our Simon ventures the slightly off-colour suggestion that there’s a fair bit of the ol’ smuggling going on at the moment as it is. Gosh! Begorra!

    Our prof – give her her due – rather than clutch her pearls and call for some handy nearby Belgian fop to run on with the smelling salts whilst she retires from Skype to her chaise longue – instead gives a knowing smile and sees the funny side of the whole whiffy wagon load of old blarney before quickly getting back on message with the doom and gloom.

    I came across a rather enlightening website earlier regarding one of the favourite topics the BBC keep harping about….. The topic?? Rohingya Muslims….. I recommend taking the time to look at it and pay attention to the various sources and their valid fact based descriptions regarding the origins of the ongoing conflict in Myanmar….

    https://www.minds.com/kpr37/blog/burma-myanmar-jihad-in-historical-perspective-886515774514917376

    I really felt this following paragraph stood out…..
    `An insurgent enclave of sedition was purposely set up to advance the goals of theocratic interests in East Pakistan ( later Bangladesh) along the border region separating Burma and East Pakistan. I believe it was the same general tactic employed to great effect, to frustrate and then attempt to overturn the Jewish effort to reconstitute their homeland in the middle east. Just as the word or designation, “Palestinian” has no real historical context relating to Arabs. Linguistic research suggests the same with the word, “Rohingya” as unconnected to any indigenous population group related to a specific geographic area, and is instead connected with the religious concept or word, “Mohammedans” in the Rakhine Languages (Arakanese). Evidence strongly suggests the “Rohingya” Muslims are in reality Bengali Muslims, simply cynically designated as persecuted stateless victims to further a narrative to an uninformed world community to advance an Islamic agenda. The parallels with the Israeli, Palestinian conflict are utterly stunning in the similarities.`

    Remember when Trump retweeted those ‘Britain First’ videos showing Muslims attacking non-Muslims and the BBC et al went ballistic, the problem not being the Muslims attacking non-Muslims but the fact somebody dared to show it?

    Heard much about this as the head of German Intelligence questions authenticity of a video from Chemnitz supposedly showing Far-Right activists chasing down immigrants?….

    ‘BERLIN (AFP) –

    Secret services typically work away from the limelight, but Germany’s top domestic spy Hans-Georg Maassen has repeatedly crashed into the public eye, with his latest outing pitting him directly against Chancellor Angela Merkel.

    After anti-migrant protests rocked the eastern city of Chemnitz, Merkel firmly condemned a “hunt against foreigners” backed by videos circulating on social media.

    But Maassen, 55, in an interview with Germany’s top-selling daily Bild last week, challenged the authenticity of at least one of the videos, sparking uproar.

    For critics, Maassen’s claim played into the hands of the far-right and his attitude was viewed as symptomatic of a domestic intelligence service riddled with far-right sympathisers.

    As pressure mounted on him to prove the video was a fake, Maassen denied questioning its authenticity and said his quarrel was with how the original poster on Twitter had oversold it as a “hunt against people” which he thought was intended to inflame tensions.’

    German Intelligence warned several years ago that Islamisation, not terrorism, was the main threat to Germany. Merkel of course paid no heed and opened the borders to an army of young Muslim males who, if they’d been carrying AK47’s, would have been called an invading army and they’d have been stopped. Looks like ‘immigration’ is a very successful and painless way of invading a country and even getting the politicians of that country to roll out the welcome mat.

    Cops did not act, perhaps the law on Hurty McHate had not been broken.

    For tens of thousands of the young who will attend the PEOPLES VOTE demo on October 20th it will be their first ever demo – they will not know demo etitquette or how to behave on demonstrations. Great. That means after several hours of shuffling boredom they will break out and spontaneity will run the day. The appearance of revolutionaries – including myself – peddling ‘the old ways’ would be merely an attempt by the old to contain the new. Pointing the way to REES-MOGG’s town house maybe all that’s required as we lounge outside St.Stephens Tavern.

    ‘I understood the infamous spiritual terror which this movement exerts, particularly on the bourgeoisie, which is neither morally nor mentally equal to such attacks; at a given sign it unleashes a veritable barrage of lies and slanders against whatever adversary seems most dangerous, until the nerves of the attacked persons break down and, just to have peace again, they sacrifice the hated individual.

    I thought this might be of interest. Evidently the Beeb have upset some in the Indian nation somewhat, by making a completely wrong/biased doco about a tribal village in Nagaland, India. Here’s an article complaining about it in theprint.in :

    Some people (not me, you understand) might say that the bad doco could probably be blamed on a combination of:
    * a narrow world-view,
    * a lack of cultural sensitivity,
    * a religio-political ideological bias, and,
    * the (presumably) incompetence,
    – of the people making the doco, but I couldn’t possibly comment.

    Why don’t they become NHS GPs? Contract so lucrative they’re voluntarily cutting back their hours.

    Or find A&E locum work on £1,000+ per day?

    Maybe some of them are.

    So could part of the answer be cutting pay for GPs and locums to discourage junior doctors “trading up” into those jobs?

    But it’s so unlistenable that I shall never know if that possibility gets an airing.

      Let’s face it – the motivation for the medical profession as always been cash . Even at the outset of the NHS began had to “ fill their mouths with gold “. The junior doctor / consultancy set up is just corruption .
      Private practice in the morning and outpatients after wards in the afternoon . Late.

      And nurses – NHS trained and then agency – the dont – give – a – damn – squad .

      Amoral doctors and nurses f ing off to aus or Canada for a better ‘ life style’ after being trained with taxpayer money . rant . But I’ve seen the corruption that is the medical business .

    A poem by a friend of mine

    IT’S TIME !!

    There’s vested interests to protect,
    Skullduggery too I suspect,
    Don’t let them cloud your intellect.
    It’s time for us to act!

    For forty odd years we have tried,
    To swallow what those suits contrived.
    It’s clear to me that they have lied.
    It’s time to make a change!

    So long in quicksand,little hope,
    No chance for Britain to elope,
    We must grab tight this rescue rope.
    It’s time to save ourselves.

    Mouth pieces ride that Gravy Train,
    No wonder they all shout remain,
    Our people won’t be fooled again.
    It’s time to take their whips!!

    Scaremongering of world war three,
    Downturn in our Economy,
    They’ll say owt but their prayers you see.
    It’s time we shut them up!!

    So many plots and schemes we’ve learned,
    They’ve stripped away the rights we’ve earned,
    But now I feel the worm has turned.
    It’s time to seize the reigns.

    If you’re not sure seek someone old,
    They’ve watched this whole damn thing unfold,
    Therefore they just won’t be cajoled.
    It’s time to take their lead!

    Don’t stick your head beneath the sand,
    Just ask if you don’t understand.
    We must unite, take back our land.
    It’s time to Brexit now!!!!

    Jimbo.

    Amazing…the BBC’s not interested that Trump’s lawyer’s lawyer admitted that there is no evidence that Trump knew of the meeting in Trump Tower….and the BBC is not interested in the fact that the Russians in that meeting had close connections to the Democrats and with the company that produced the dodgy dossier for the Dems, Fusion GPS….or that the Clintons received millions of dollars from Russian sources.

    Both reports put a spoke in the ‘Trump colluded with the Russians’ line being peddled hard by the BBC.

    Then again the BBC isn’t so keen to report other stories that reflect badly on the anti-Trump resistance, or the anti-democratic coup plotters as they should be called.

    For instance how about the one about Google trying to get out the Hispanic vote in the expectation that they would all vote for Clinton…only to be sorely disappointed as nearly 30% voted Trump.

    Or how about the latest as a video surfaces of a gaggle of Google execs mourning Trump’s election and essentially dismissing his voters as uneducated bigots and racists….but don’t worry, the resistance goes on.

    Odd how the BBC is so unconcerned about Google’s attempts to interfere in US democracy and its clear bias when it is the biggest and most influential company in the world with vast amounts of data on just about everybody which it could put to all sorts of uses should it wish to.

    The BBC was outraged by Facebook’s association with companies that worked with Trump and allegedly, but not in fact, Brexit. Huge amounts of BBC airtime has gone on trying to force Facebook to stop supporting such companies and to crack down on what the BBC et al define as fake news, ie anything that contradicts their own narrative about the world, and yet they seem entirely unconcerned when such huge resources of tech companies go towards helping the Democrats or like-minded fellow-travellers.

    Of course there is nothing on their website. Nada. This goes to the core of the problem with the BBC: the stuff they refuse to report on. They have space for a story about an old rock and streaming lags for football, but nothing about someone abusing absolute power absolutely – the very thing they forever tell us is so bad. (Except when they do it.).
