Weekend Open Thread 15 September 2018

So predictably the BBC aids and abets the rabid Project Fear to stop Brexit. It is not hard to see the constant bias and we can be comforted that the Great British public see it too.

    The island
    Remainers will be aware of this and happy with it. It’s what’ the ever closer union ‘ is all about . If we stay in a unified tax code , unified legal system , single currency , constitution and ReichEU president, will be part of the future of Blighty .

    If we get out and prosper – others will follow as they won’t accept the third world in the way we have been forced to by snowflake politicians .

          He’s not so perky or indeed interested at all in the revelation that Cohen lied about Trump knowing about the meeting in Trump Tower and has no evidence of that, or in the revelation that that meeting was probably set up by the Democrats who knew the Russians and had a tangled relationship between them and Fusion GPS who produced the dodgy dossier for them. Two huge counter-narratives to the BBC line about Trump/Russians that Sopel seems to want to ignore.

          Do they not think it looks extremely bad prosecuting political opponents for trumped up crimes? This is just the sort of filth Putin engages in.

          Brexit and Trump have really shown the elites for how vicious they really are beneath this veneer of decency and tolerance.

        Island – I sort of get the idea that Tory “leave” MPs are quite happy to sit on the sidelines and throw stones but in reality do very little to rid us of this Jackal in Leopard skin heels.

        JRM iS still offering this ghastly traitor his full support despite it becoming more obvious by the day that we have all been set up by the EU, TM and the MSM and especially the BBC to have low expectations. The negotiations are no more than a panto – I wish I was wrong but fear I am not.

        TM talks a little tougher yet still seems to back down and accept the EU position whether it is protecting our fishermen or control of our armed forces.

        The old adage “actions speak louder than words ” has never been truer than now.

      “If we get out and prosper – others will follow as they won’t accept the third world in the way we have been forced to by snowflake politicians”.

      Absolutely, Fed! But that was the real reason why concerned citizens gave the thumbs down to the appallingly corrupt EU, with idiots like waffling Kinnock troughing away, and nasty lounge lizards like Mandelson, and evil, despised liars like Bliar spending millions to get reasonable people to vote to stay, and never even realising that we’d all had enough treachery for this older generation. Snowflakes go figure…

      Less than 200 days now, and the BBC will be pissing their little knickers trying to get schoolchildren like Owain Jawnes, and farcical shriekers like Alibaii Brownies – whatever his name is to get their silly faces on a screen – any screen, or in front of a mic – even one switched on for the sake of the cameras – to dribble inanities.

      Suck it all up lefties, sjws, snowflakes bbbc, sky – not long now before you’re toast!

      This man, Coudenhove-Kalergi, has a lot to answer for with regards to what the miscreants in charge of the EU and the UK and other English speaking Nations are doing to us. His main proposal is to replace the white race with a hybrid race as a result of miscegenation and/ or total replacement.

      That’s what is being done and this man and his warped ideas are a significant instigator of the mass migration policies:

    You’ve gotta laugh as the BBC slowly, or rapidly, sideline the somewhat significant story about the Electoral Commission’s cock-up from a main story on the frontpage to the sidebar to make way for a report on ‘World Afro Day: ‘Why I love my natural hair’…
    World Afro Day, celebrated on 15 September, was founded to celebrate “change, education and celebration” of natural hairstyles amongst black and mixed-race women.

    Here’s the thing…no white person gives a toss whether a Black person has natural curly hair or straightens it or whatever. It’s one of those fake ‘issues’ that the racist race baiters in the Black community want to whip up to justify their own existence and the BBC is there for them.

    No doubt Nike will be making some new ads soon….some new sneakers…‘Nike Hair’…in many colours.

    I suppose hair is important…just ask Diane Abbott who would rather talk hair than about her support for terrorism and cheerleading ‘defeating the British’.

    Curious the BBC not making much of Thornberry’s reassertion that Labour will vote down any and all Brexit deals in order to force an election…talk about opportunistic politics putting party before national interest…or don’t talk about it if you’re a Beeboid.

    So two big Brexit stories that go against the BBC grain and they either ignore them or downplay and spin them to their own agenda.If the Electoral Commission had been found to be operating correctly and Vote Leave therefore confirmed to be in the wrong the BBC would have been trumpeting this from the rooftops for days with endless chatter. Wonder just how much discussion this will get on Newsnight and Today.

      I’d add Kathleen Battle (dismissed by the Metropolitan Opera for “unprofessional actions that were profoundly detrimental to the artistic collaboration among all cast members”) and unfortunately, Jessye Norman, who at least knows how to behave most of the time.

      And all this during a period when, generally speaking, divas have been becoming less diva-like and more professional. It’s what happens when people are given protected victim status and allowed to believe that they can do no wrong. It’s a bad idea for children, and even worse for childish adults.

    Two different worlds:

    (1) The BBC’s moronic & loony Orwellian World of Censorship:

    An interpretation of what W1A moron, Frans Unsworth, means. She means “We must keep off the BBC all those causational climate scientists who deny that the climate changes, especially if they deny that Hull City lost or won a football match. Also we must censor the existence of all those scientists who want to close down the Church of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Also beware of the FALSE GOD of balance between the BBC’s environmental activists and those climate scientists who deny the doctrine of the Church of the IPCC. The BBC is offering staff new training for this propaganda. Gaia be with you, Kumbaya my Lord” Frans Unsworth. https://www.conservativewoman.co.uk/set-in-stone-the-bbcs-climate-change-bias

    (2) The latest Pamphlet on Climate Change from Mensa members:

    Since 2009, many scientists have proven that Carbon Dioxide induced Climate Change is as President Trump has said “A Hoax”. In 2009 the scientist Gerhard Gerlich proved directly the “Falsification Of The Atmospheric CO2 Greenhouse Effects Within The Frame Of Physics“. Further confirmation of the CO2 warming hoax was obtained through thermodynamics and successfully finding a formula that works for both of the carbon dioxide atmospheres of Venus and Mars, as well as all the other planetary atmospheres. In 2011, Ned Nikolov & Karl Zeller introduced the “Unified Theory of Climate” which proved that the temperature relationship with the altitudinal changes of pressure, prove that the physical nature of the so-called Greenhouse Effect is in fact a Pressure-induced Thermal Inertia which is independent of the atmospheric chemical composition. Ned Nikolov spoke at the London Climate Change Conference on Thursday, 8th September 2016 about this. By early 2018, the scientist who had just proven that Climate Change is caused by Galactic Cosmic Rays regulating the Earth’s Cloud Albedo, Professor Henrik Svensmark, was invited to speak in the Committee rooms of the Houses of Parliament on Tuesday, March 13, 2018. In fact, for two hundred years, Astronomers from William Herschel onwards had known about correlations between Climate Change and Sun Spot numbers, this was followed by more accurate correlations with Solar Cycle Length and then finally, the Hale Magnetic Solar Cycle. By 2018 it had been established that these correlations are caused by the speed of the centre of the Sun relative to the centre of mass or barycentre of the Solar System, which determines the length of the solar cycles, or more importantly the 22 year, Hale Magnetic Solar Cycle. This in turn is caused by the orbits and masses of the Planets, short Hale Magnetic Solar Cycles have higher Solar Magnetic activity due to the increase in the speed of plasma within the Sun. Between 1913 and 1996, only one of eight Solar Cycles was longer than the mean Solar Cycle length of 11.04 years, the last of these was the shortest Solar Cycle for more than 200 years, the strength of the Suns magnetic field more than doubled, the cosmic ray flux fell by 11 percent and there was a 8.6 percent reduction in clouds. This caused alarmism about Global Warming which lead the United Nations to set up the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), but this organisation was corrupted by environmentalism, politics, conflicts of interest and the corruption of the scientific method, as well as the fact that amongst the 40,000 delegates at the 2015 Paris Summit of the UN Convention on Climate Change, Climate Scientists did not dominate the debates that produced the agreement. This lead many Climate scientists to call for the IPCC to be disbanded as well as to set up the 2016 London Climate Change Conference, which was dominated by Causational Climate scientists such as Atmospheric Physicists, Solar Astronomers and Meteorologists. This also resulted in US President, Donald Trump, to end US funding for the IPCC in 2017, and to say that man-made Climate Change is a “Hoax”.

        I avoid going to lectures on topics which Guardianworld own, cos they are just echo chambers, so are false.
        They will give you their bubble World view, nod at each other and shut down ‘critical’ questioning.
        However today I don’t have much alternative choice.
        So I am in 2 back to back lectures on science communication.
        Both lectures within the first minutes sneered at Trump and praised the Guardian.
        Uncanny, that they both did that.
        but by saying ‘Trump has his own Truth’ I’m guessing they are projecting themselves.
        #1 Was a panel of 4 science writers all Guardian supporters. Their leader from ChemistryWorld went on ‘yeh, cos of Trump we live in a post-truth world
        Then Jack Stilgoe spurted out ‘ yeh the American right aren’t interested in ACTUAL climate science, it’s just a pretence cos all they are interested in is their policy of free markets etc. ‘
        … That untruth provoked an American PHD pensioner got up and walked out, loudly.

        Later when someone asked shouted
        She’s a denier she doesn’t believe in Climate Change”

        (that’s not even true, I’ve heard her guffaw when a speaker has been doing alarmist PR
        And at the stupid feedback form which has too many qns about diversity.

          Lecture #2 was by a Brit who moved from a deputy at British Museum and is now head of the MIT museum
          He began with a Guardian article sneering at Trump and Kelly Ann Conway
          He ended with the recent Guardian article by Jenny Rohn
          “I’m giving up on science journalism’
          …”the best way to influence the current state… is private targeted channels” (politicians)

          FFS science journalist’s job is not to INFLUENCE
          .. it is to tell the truth to the the Public, cos they Pay for science work.

          So I managed to tackle him on 2 things
          1. Do you think there is a disconnect between the Guardian World and the public who pay taxes?
          (He didn’t understand the implication of that Guardian article, was to say sod you taxpayer)

          Then when he said you see on Social Media you should take notice of Ed Yong and not the chaff
          #2 I pointed out he’s saying
          ‘When the small boy tweets “the emperor has no clothes” ignore him’
          … And his idea of trusted sources is the fallacy of argument from authority

          I won, I think.
          Next lecture was the Gender Gap… Again one dimensional.. all reducing world to men vs women and not understanding that women quotas are benefitting posh Liberal White women overworking class Middlesborough men.

            Many years ago there wasn’t any internet, so you went to a library and ordered scientific documents. Then ten years ago I found the internet and a science blog about calibrating carbon dioxide warming using Glass Jars, Atmospheric Chambers, Gas Pipes and finally using the Atmosphere of Mars as a proxy. I seemed to be the only Brit on the blog. You could then find rare scientific papers about the core issues on Google Scholar. Finally I found that https://tallbloke.wordpress.com was the best place for debate about the Atmospheric Physics and Solar Astronomy in those scientific papers.

            The BBC‘s “Arrhenius method” is now dying and is being replaced by the “Unified Theory of Climate”. BBC Censorship contributes to slowing down knowledge of this change, a change that will demolish the biggest scientific Hoax in history. At the moment, apart from a small but growing number of scientists who use Tallbloke, Piers Corbyns Weatheraction and a few members of a Mensa special interest group, most sceptical scientists seem to be still ignorant of the “Unified Theory of Climate”, for instance I have never seen any mention by the GWPF. In fact the GWPF still believes that man has a little bit to do with Global Warming, but not much. But as Piers Corbyn, Richard Pinder and Donald Trump would say “even that is a Hoax”

    2018-09-15 BBC News in Pictures.
    Chicago “Three artists challenging African-American stereotypes”.

    Except they are not artists, they are photographers.
    Photographers, whose original photographs have been air-brushed and photoshopped until they bear no resemblance to what Africans really look like.

    And they are not “challenging African-American stereotypes”.
    The pictures are accompanied by text which admits that the “artists” are unhappy with Western history, and Western painting, since it does not give Africans the prominence they claim to deserve. Cultural appropriation is alright, as long as white people do not do it.

    So they create a new, “pictorial”, version of history, one they prefer. Western history is based on lies, in reality everything worthwhile was developed by Africans.

    And here are the pictures which prove it.

    An almost perfect example of BBC bias, 100% untruth, 100% racist intent from the beginning.
    Vomit-inducing, anti-white propaganda, for five year olds.

    Personally my three simple rules of couture are: it has to fit; has to be reasonably priced; and doesn’t make me look like a poof.

    The BBC are always keen on Fashion Week and their coverage of this event is just about my only, albeit tangential, contact with fashion. I sense I’m not the one in the minority here.

    At least we’ll see some pretty girls on tv. Oh well…

    “… at London Fashion Week this year some campaigners are keen to show up our narrow attitudes to beauty and are focusing attention on models with disabilities, facial marks, scars….”

        During the years my late husband played cricket (which was EVERY weekend), it was a given that all members of the squad had a nickname, or the very least lengthen the surname by adding an ‘ie’ on the end (as in Wilkie/Blakie etc). Sage was ‘onions’ / Laureate was ‘poet’ / a chap of small stature was the ‘gnome’/ and so on.

        What makes this chap with a beard wait 3 years before moaning about it, and exactly how many kids are known as Osama anyway ?? I’m sure at our cricket club he would be known as Ali baba, it could be worse, as one of the chaps named Mohammed was referred to as Millie Mohair !

          I was disappointed by this. In a country in which so many Muslims appear to display little or no loyalty to Britain, Moeen has always seemed (and I am sure is) very proud to play for England, and is a huge asset to the team; he is also very actively involved in bringing the game to young lads who might otherwise ignore it. Yes, he takes the strictures of his faith seriously: he stands aside at the champagne-spraying and forgoes the magnum that is presented to the Man of the Match. But to wait three years before revealing what was, after all, merely a bantering aside, that is absurd and I’m afraid it has lowered Moeen in my estimation. But he is still a fine player and could just prove to be England’s elusive number three…

    I’m tempted to take a leaf out of the BBC’s weather forecasting style guide and call it The First Winter Ever ! (since records began) without the likes of Aggers, Blowers, Tuffers etc…

    Obviously the loss of broadcasting rights is due to the fact the BBC couldn’t or wouldn’t stump up as much dosh as the commercial wireless companies.

    It comes to something when even the BBC’s sister organ the Guardian thinks this may actually be a good thing.

    https://www.theguardian.com/sport/blog/2018/apr/18/tms-talksport-radio-change-cricket-england

    There are a couple of highlights in this article. Maybe widen the argument from a dearth of TMS to a disappearance of the entirety of the BBC. It makes you wonder whether even the Guardian might happily do without the BBC altogether.

    ‘… the general response to this news has been somewhere on the spectrum between regret, dismay and a great swirling fudge of mawkish, cake-fondling, doily-clutching Middle England horror.’

    ‘…Jonathan Agnew, who seems to think his employer being outbid for some broadcast rights is a national disaster on the scale of the death of Princess Diana and that ice skating woman falling over all rolled into one’

    ‘…the self-righteous tone… (is) a provocation to every other working broadcaster involved in covering the sport’

    ‘…he is also a part of why some may welcome a bit of variation, those moments where the sense of vital work being done, of weepy self-importance slips into something else. Imagine the phrase “Bumptious BBC self-regard” baked in a nuclear reactor until it finally grows arms and legs, escapes, kits itself out in chinos and begins talking in a cosy, righteous tone about delivering a vital national service.’

    Sadly this is not going to be the of the BBC as a whole. And I’m sure we can all look forward to plenty of additional wimmins football stepping up to fill the gap left in the shedules by the demise of TMS.

      Ah, little owen has been part of a campaign in my neighbouring constituency in order to unseat Crabbe.
      He made an appearance last year at a public gathering. The commies are very strong here, and have a big presence in the social media, especially FBook.
      They pose as ( insert name) council watch.
      Of you have a minute read on:
      I was commenting on the council watch until a post appeared purporting to show a leaflet posted in a Fishguard shop window. The leaflet was filled with anti gay quotes from the bible, and was attributed in the post to the jehovas witnesses.
      The mods on the group deny anything except council related business, or stuff relevant to the county ( in their judgement of course).
      As an anti lgbtq….(ad nauseam) posting the identity politics and SJWs were quick to call for action against such intolerance.
      Well, unable to resist such an open goal, I posted some kind words about islam in relation to intolerance.
      Cue howls of offence from everywhere.
      Then one of them quoted ( srry MIS quoted ) 5:32 as evidence of rop tolerance. I then gave the full unedited version and its meaning, and called them sll useful idiots. Two then claimed who was I to lecture actual moslems! Huh!
      So there it was exposed, an anti christian post, by moslems, was ok, but my islam comments were modded out and deleted.
      When I complained the whole thread with any evidence was delted.
      End of road for me, but people have no idea they are being conned.
      The same people also ran a general election watch.
      My constant bombardment of photos of steptoe with a variety of terrorists, thugs and murderers went down a bomb.
      They really didnt make a dent in the tory holding, his majority increased. Without my support I hasten to add.
      The aim tho was to get labour support, although they could post up pics of maggie with saville etc, etc, steptoe is such an open goal they were fucked.
      I must say though, that social media here is the domain of the great unwashed as things stand.
