Weekend Open Thread 6 October 2018

The Far Left BBC will turn the possible  US Supreme Court victory for President Trump into a defeat as it shows its’ full bias.Next biased attack please …

Russians are  making themselves easy targets as they try to muscle in on BBC territory to undermine the West. We are meant to believe the Russians want to hack the NHS – a culture still using fax machines to avoid the accountability of emails . Perhaps they’d favour us with hacking the BBC.

Then the House of Clowns returns after another little holiday joining with the BBC to block Brexit .

      The Democrats remind me of a Nazi judge screaming his disgust at those assumed guilty.

      Roland Freisler was his name, Freisler was notorious for shouting, yelling and screaming at defendants passing before him on their way to their deaths.

      He was known to have attended the Soviet purge trials in Moscow in 1938, and watched Chief Prosecutor, Andrei Vyshinsky’s courtroom performances.

      So it looks as thought American Democratic Socialist Judges have learned their legal techniques in college, learning from a German National Socialist Judge who learned his craft at a trial held by a Russian Soviet Socialist Judge.

      So I wouldn’t be surprised if an American Democratic Socialist Judge said to Kavanaugh. “You dirty old man, why do you keep fiddling with your trousers?”

      The real significance of President Trump’s tweet is that he has called out George Soros (‘real name György Schwartz’), bringing his role to the attention of millions more Americans. Needless to say, the BBC rushes to his defence, with some disinformation and selective data. Firstly, it tries to dismiss pro-humanity supporters (i.e. Soros opponents) as conspiracy theorists, with the implication that they are delusional. Then, it admits: ‘In fact, Soros does fund numerous progressive causes – to the tune of $10m to political action committees in 2018 alone’. Well, that’s a bit like describing an iceberg based on the tiny bit that sticks above the water, as political action committees are only a tiny fractions of what he finances. Most of his money is channelled through his Open Society Foundations: in 2017, it emerged that he had transferred $18 billion into it (source: er, the BBC on May 31st 2018). OSF helps finance the Peoples Vote (sic), the NGO migrant ferry services in the Mediterranean, political turmoil in Ukraine and elsewhere, along with ‘campaigns in favour of LGBT and Roma rights’ (source: BBC again).
      Secondly, it tries to compare Soros with the Koch Brothers, longtime bogeymen of the Left. The Kochs finance a wide variety of causes, ranging from the United Negro College Fund through to working with the American Civil Liberties Union. They opposed George W Bush and supported Obama in many areas, as well as supporting same sex marriages (sic) and abortion. They also support a wide range of what may be broadly termed conservative causes, along with a small amount of funding into climate change (which particularly annoys the Leftists & Globalists). They are particularly active during presidential and congressional elections. Consevatively – no pun intended – they have maybe spent 10%-20% of what Soros has, but into a wider range of causes.

    Beeboids ,

    Yes I will be in on the 10th Wednesday thank you .

    Your letter seems a little obscure , like you are visiting but you aren’t , and you may visit later but you don’t know . First there seems something serious to discuss , then you’re not sure if it’s worth the effort .
    You spell out ways I can stop you visiting , but well really if you don’t want to visit then just not visit . No need to invite yourselves then make excuses not to come . I’m not offended by your non attendance at your not quite specified dates that you might or might not visit . Your communications you send me are so obfuscating that I will refer to Nostrodamus as a clearer indication of when you actually visit .
    Can you look at how other organisations make appointments ?
    Utilities such as Water companies give a window of a few hours in a particular day they will enact what they need to do . The Supermarkets give a window of two hours odd . Your missives seem to be as though you are not of this earth of 24 hours but a more far flung planet like Pluto with a rotation round the sun , thus a day , of about a month .
    If you can be a little more precise I can lay the trolley with tea and biscuits , waiting for your arrival .

    Last March Unilever announced it was going Dutch and the BBC reported….

    ‘The company said the decision over its HQ was “not about Brexit”.’

    However it couldn’t resist the temptation adding…

    ‘However, anti-Brexit campaigners described the move as a “major blow” to the UK government as it prepares for next year’s exit from the European Union. The chief executive of the Best for Britain group, Eloise Todd, said it showed “what business really feels” about the UK’s departure from the EU.

    She added: “The government are saying to anyone who will listen this is not to do with Brexit, but anyone with any sense knows it’s a factor.”‘

    So today we learn that Unilever has been forced to dump that change…by financial companies based in the UK who want to keep it listed on the FTSE 100 in London.

    The BBC again has the grace to admit the planned move had nothing to do with Brexit….but….of course Brexit will eventually bring disaster to the company….

    ‘A significant number of Unilever shareholders are saying that means staying in London – that does have post-Brexit significance.’

    Soooo…rather than say the obvious that this is a significant vote of confidence in Britain and the London markets the BBC goes for the project fear narrative. When Unilever were leaving us the BBC gave voice to those Remainers who wanted to use this as a stick to trash Brexit…but now where are the Brexiteer voices cheerleading this on the BBC, where is that positive narrative from the BBC?

    We have all been repeatedly told that Brexit will destroy ‘The City’ and indeed the BBC was off touring Europe last week eagerly looking for stories of British companies relocating to the EU and sounding mighty pleased when they found one or two who’d shift the odd few workers over. Funny how when evidence that this might not be the case pops up the BBC doesn’t want to play anymore…and in fact is so reluctant to play they have taken the ball and hidden it on the business page despite it being a major economic story. Almost as if they don’t want you to know about it too much….for some reason.

      If Britain becomes a tax haven, after “Brexit Freedom Day“, like many British colonies not in the European Union, then the Dutch part of Unilever would probably want to relocate to London. As would most companies in the European Union. It all depends on whether we get a patriotic tax cutting government from Boris Johnson or Jacob Rees Mogg. Or a socialist tax raising government from Theresa May or Jeremy Corbyn.

    Caught an exchange on Chiles today between American comedian Will Franken and Aussie feminazi [fair description I think] comedian Deborah Frances-White as they dsiscussed Kavanaugh and other things. Franken talked a lot of sense whilst, well, no need to say more is there? However Franken made one mistake as he claimed DFW had said she wanted to exterminate all white people…a claim she vigorously denied. However….it is pretty much what she would like….

    ‘ On white people, she declares “the best we can hope is that we get old and die before the rest of humanity gets sick of our shit and revolts” ‘

    Ironically and totally without any self-awareness she went on later in the exchange to say we must have a ‘people’s vote’ now because he old leave voters are dying off so now’s the opportune moment to have a second vote to take advantage. Chiles didn’t make any comment but did say he’d googled her and couldn’t find any reference to her alleged comments about exterminating white people…though that desire of hers, put more mildly but nonetheless there, is easy to find.. She does seem keen on killing off ‘problem’ people….

    ‘She is also knowing about the different forms of generational privilege, reminding the largely undergraduate audience that “your best shot at real estate, young people, is to wait until your parents die”.’

    Why does the BBC insist on having such highly polarised and fanatically partisan guests on like DFW to discuss major issues like Kavanaugh and Brexit when what is need is rational, calm and reasoned debate?

    Kavanaugh to be confirmed! O praise the Lord. Never mind me too, I am starting to think: “Not him as well?” If they take out Ronaldo that will mean so much less joy for billions of men. Of course we can never know what happened, but I cannot imagine being alone with a handsome athlete is such a harrowing experience. Never, ever go to someone’s bedroom alone and drunk unless you are interested. It takes two to tango. The idea that women are mere passive victims in all this is such nonsense.

      Totally agree BB. Women don’t go to a guy’s bedroom to discuss the latest knitting patterns and drink coffee. It was the same in the 60’s, only then they were called ‘groupies’ and knew exactly what they were doing – and rarely were there any cries of ‘rape’ back then. My mum and dad always said if I found myself to be in an unwanted comprising situation, then a short sharp knee in the groin would do the trick. Thankfully that form of self defence was never needed.

      Dunno about Ronaldo. Great player but a poor loser and a bad sport. Can’t remember which game it was in the 2018 World Cup, but I distinctly remember a furious Ronaldo confronting the ref once the game was lost. I’m no lip reader but the consensus was that he invited the ref to effect a sexual departure. Apparently that wasn’t the first time he lost control but is part of a pattern.

      Then there are the displays of ego as he struts around the field, apparently well aware of when the camera will focus on him.

      Of course, all this doesn’t make him a rapist but just someone probably capable of date rape.

    The BBC’s reaction to the Senate vote on Kavanaugh was to be expected.
    They covered the news angle, focusing on howling Democrats who couldn’t accept a Trump nominee and who now won’t accept the outcome of an FBI probe.
    They then do the summing up, analysis bit – this is where a pundit is wheeled out to confirm the BBC bias.
    Last night on Newsnight the elfin presenter made a serious of statements blaming everything on Trump, to which the ‘expert’ commentator agreed.
    They did it again on Today this morning. Some American pundit said Trump had created a gender gap and that the Kavanaugh story had become a battle between “less well educated” male Trump supporters and “educated” female Democrat backers – ring any bells here in Brexitland?
    Anyway, there was no acknowledgement that the Kavanaugh case might have been about anti-democracy, or the threat to due process and the rule of law.
    These core issues are being sidelined in favour of perpetuating the witch-hunt and glorifying the mob.

    With palpable relish they are reporting on a ‘white Police officer prosecuted for killing an unarmed black man.’ They are very careful to stress the race of the two individuals.

    Why run with such a toxic narrative? Why must they always lap up this race baiting stuff?

    What are the actual facts of the case? I can’t imagine evil whitey just saw a black child reading a book and decided to gun him down for kicks, which is what they want us to believe. Was the suspect a known criminal and did the officer have good reason to feel in danger? You could hardly blame him seeing how many officers get shot in the US. But of course the BBC just lap up the race baiting and ignore the crucial details. Narrative first, facts later if you are lucky and probably never.

    Even if it were an actually racist event – which I strongly doubt – it is just one incident from four years ago. That it happened so long ago yet they still report on it shows how thin on the ground these cases are. They take isolated cases and turn the emotion and focus up to eleven when often the case is an outlier.

    They would not stress how ‘MUSLIM’ men raped ‘WHITE’ girls. They would either totally ignore it and even then downplay the clear racial element. Plus this is not a single incident but an endemic pattern of behaviour.

    I so hate nonsense like this. What does this achieve other than stir up hatred against the Police, the people relied on by many vulnerable communities to protect them from gang violence etc? It ties the hand of the Police when they are petrified of accusations of ‘racism’ and this is a direct cause of the bloodshed we are witnessing in London.

    If only they could get this angry about black on black crime, which is an infinitely larger problem and far, far more likely to result in a black man being murdered.

    That story about Manchester University banning clapping because it could “cause distress.” I mean where the fxxx do you start? This is almost beyond parody. Even left wing stalwarts like Jeremy Vine have ridiculed the decision and made reference to what was happening in Flanders a hundred years ago. Can you imagine these feeble snowflakes out there? Mud, muck, bullets and shell fire. No, me neither.
    Apparently “jazz hands” and sign language are now preferred to the more traditional response of clapping and first out of the blocks was that perennial half wit, Dawn Butler, who has already used sign language in the House of Commons. Well, I’ve often adopted a bit of sign language myself when I’ve been forced to listen to Ms Butler, however…
    Sarah Khan, Manchester University student spokesperson was interviewed on BBC radio…and this is what made me chuckle.
    “We’re trying to be inclusive” she wittered. “Some of our students find the noise intimidating.” Bless ’em!
    And then the punchline, without any sense of irony. “Those that choose to adopt these new ways of showing appreciation shouldn’t be criticised…they should be applauded.”
    Um, okay…

      Come on now! The Germans had a hard time after the War. We took all their old machinery as reparations – then the Americans gave them brand-new, more efficient, safer ones under the Marshall Plan

        Britain received more in Marshall Aid than Germany did. This is often forgotten. Unfortunately, we were more concerned with establishing a flawed welfare state than modernising our industry and infrastructure.

        The World owed us a living, or so we thought.

      Germany got its independence from Britain on 5th May 1955. Until then Frederick Millar, as the High Commissioner to the British Zone of Germany, held the sovereignty of this zone of Germany, in the name of Her Majesty the Queen.

      Today, the Queen is now pleased that the threat to the sovereignty of her 16 Realms, posed by the European Union is scheduled to come to an end on the 29th March 2019, at 11pm. At a private lunch before the referendum, the Queen said “I don’t see why we can’t just get out, what’s the problem?“. The Commonwealth Realms provide the Queen with 10,335,644 square miles under her rule, the largest amount of territory under the rule of one person in the 21st Century. The Queen rules over 100 territories in the World, but only England, Gibraltar, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales are in the European Union. At the moment, according to Philip Benwell, England, Gibraltar, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales are “Dependent Territories” within an “Independent Sovereign Realm” in which only 20 territories (Akrotiri & Dhekelia to Turks & Caicos Islands) are not dependent territories of the EU and therefore much better off than if they had been incorporated into the EU. By leaving the undemocratic European Union, Her Majesty the Queen would now be pleased that she can now guarantee the sovereignty of her Royal Commonwealth Realms from undemocratic interference from the European Union, as was advised by Philip Benwell, National Chairman of the Australian Monarchist League.

    The R4 Sh!t Stirring Show this morning, my switch on bingo wins
    – Thought for the Day started with a Buddhist Bishop telling us 2018 will be the warmest year on record
    I clicked off
    Then the next time I switched on I was getting Harra saying 8 UK places had underread NOx or something
    Ah I see what happened the activist NGO Client Earth have put out a press release New pollution plan reveals toxic air in England worse than feared and media people have cutNpasted it.

    When I check this I see The government news release is quite different
    It has published a supplement to the plan to tackle NO2 emissions
    and will fund new measures identified by Local Authorities to cut
    PR release
    Basically 3 3are on track and 8 are behind projections. Portsmouth, Liverpool, Leicester, Bradford, Bolsover, Broxbourne, Newcastle-under-Lyme & Stoke-on-Trent
    \\ Broxbourne Borough Council has one road link with a projected exceedance of the annual mean NO2 limit value in the national PCM modelling: a section of the A10 (Census ID 78365). //
    ie it’s saying when the target date kicks in they they project that, that ONE spot in Broxbourne will be over the limit.

    A quiet week with opinion polls this week. Strange as it is the conference season. Am I right to think that they have a ‘left wing bias’ as well?

    The latest poll gives the Tories a 6 point lead. The poll was conducted at the start of the week just after another poll gave Labour a 5 point lead but why publish such a poll when it could cancel out Labour’s lead at the start of the Tory conference?

    Where are the polls after the Prime Minister’s speech. I have seen mixed reactions so far but these are merely comments on the internet. Labour supporters running rampant with fake news because they where disappointed that a few letters did not fall off the wall this time. The speech must have gone ‘okish’ then? So far the only criticism I have seen was May’s dancing before the speech. Is that all they could find?

    As for the BBC that conference never happened. They interviewed a few people but they where mostly in support of the Prime Minister. Different age groups, different backgrounds. Some leave, others remain. Better stop reporting then!

    In fact the BBC had to try and peddle the ‘Anti sematic Tory students’ story from the Mirror to try and get some attention. That story has already been debunked as little more than fake news. I see little evidence for what they where being exposed for.

    As for the ‘experts’ I see that Kassenburg or whatever her name is was having trouble stirring it up this time. Nothing from Pienaar but a very strong bias from D’Arcy.

    I guess that next week would be ‘business as usual’ for everyone involved. More Brexit talks with the PM and hopefully some decent trade deals. Rumour has it that Chilli and South Africa are on the cards. At least it is not Corbyn’s paradise Venezuela or a war torn African nation. (Unless SA is seen as war torn these days?)

    Talking of Corbyn I have heard little from him this week. Isn’t he supposed to nit pick at everything the PM does? He must really be climbing walls to think of something this time! (lol)

    Have a good weekend, all!

    Now where are the opinion polls?

    Looks like the great Democratic power grab in the Senate, backed up by the baying mob, has run into a wee obstacle for the moment. Close thing. We nearly had ‘guilty until proven innocent’ enshrined in US law.
    Any male anywhere could be eliminated from any race for any position by simply getting hordes of screamers and screechers to emerge from the woodwork, making whatever claims they felt like.

    A 15-year-old boy was given detention after voicing his support for Ukip during a classroom debate, his father has claimed.

    During a phone-in on radio station LBC yesterday, a caller named Paul told host Nick Ferrari his son had been punished after declaring he would vote for the Right-wing party – but shouldn’t be called racist.

    The caller said: ‘One boy said he’d vote for Ukip and the teacher said “all Ukip voters are racist”, so my boy came in and said, “I’d vote for Ukip and I’m not racist.”

      How can UKIP be racist when they actually have a number of black and Asian supporters?

      Do you not get racism in left wing parties? Labour’s anti Semitism and the SNPs hatred for anyone south of the border?

      I am not a Kipper myself but I couldn’t class them as a racist party.

      Did we not have a similar incident where a girl got sent out of class in college for saying that she supports Robinson? I couldn’t even class Rosinson as a full on racist either.

      What next? Expelled from school because you don’t support Corbyn?

    Dateline London. I only ever watch to see if there is any balance on its panel.
    Again today, it consists of the usual left leaning media bubble. Four-nil in sneering at Brexit, four-nil in denouncing Trump, four-nil in finding Kavanaugh guilty as charged.
    One American pundit proclaimed the end of the “golden age of liberalism”, with reference to Trump and Brexit, with nods of approval all round.
    Strange isn’t it how these people equate the EU – statist, non democratic, bureaucratic – with liberalism.
    The truth is that the real liberals are those who believe in democracy, freedom, self determination, open markets, real globalism, and free speech. These are the majority who voted to get out of the EU.

      BBC Blogpost : we’re expanding climate change coverage

      “From 3 October The World Tonight on BBC Radio 4 and Newshour on BBC World Service will be covering climate change every week.”

      Paul H comments
      this single paragraph, which contains four falsehoods:

      Temperature rises are affecting crops, changing the rainforests, and putting massive amounts of extra energy into the world’s weather systems.
      Rising temperatures are pushing malaria into parts of Africa that have never had the disease.

      No mention of the fact that crop yields have been rising rapidly for decades.
      Or that all of this supposed “extra energy” has had no discernible effect on storms or any other type of weather.
      Or that, far from wiping out rainforests, extra CO2 has greened the planet.
      Or that the claims about malaria have been debunked by disease experts.
      ,…..
      In the Beeboid dictionary “science” = “alarmist OPINION from our cherry picked alarmist mates”

          local paper quotes Peston saying BBC wasn’t biased enough and they should have only aired the ‘holy truth’, instead of allowing 2 opinions
          \\ “The problem with the BBC was during the campaign it put people on with diametrically-opposed views.
          It didn’t give any help in assessing which one was the loony and which one was the genius.
          … Impartial journalism is not giving equal airtime to two people.. ”

          Peston also said “People who I regard as friends and family feel so alienated from Labour at the moment.
          I think they’re moving in the right direction but I will not believe, because it is such an indictment of our democracy, that the Labour Party is institutionally racist is such a horrific thought.”

          Mr Peston said there shouldn’t be another referendum, branding an event “unhealthy”. said he feared having a second vote would be “too divisive”.
          “There are a proportion of the British people who don’t feel passionate about Brexit,
          but there are large numbers of who voted to leave who are just as passionate as those who want **us** to stay.” //

      There has been a lot of fanfaring of first muslim this and that of late. It’s as if they think we should be impressed and grateful. One presenter* was arguing that without all the immigration from Pakistan, Sajid Javid would never have become Home Secretary, as if we would have been missing something, and, more to the point, as if we would even know about it.

      No notable other than muslims are defined up front in terms of their religion

      *can’t remember the program, it might have been LBC . When I turn off Radio 4 I go to a number of other channels, Radio Cambridge, Planet Rock, and lately trying LBC but I’m finding the latter is also making me angry sometimes.
