Start the Week Open Thread 8 October 2018

The BBC and mainstream media will spend a bit of time working out how President Trump’s nominee was appointed to the US Supreme Court despite the MSM onslaught against him . Then it’s back to fighting the November elections on behalf the Democrat Party .

Meanwhile at home we will witness the BBC undermining Brexit negotiations by blaming any piece of bad news on the People’s vote of 2 years ago .

 

Just a small plea again – language moderation is requested Please …

    Read somewhere that the lefty lady who tried to scupper Kavanaughs bid to be a SC Judge is a psychology and social action sinecure at Palo Alto Uni in California(where else?).
    Houses there cost millions, her university has 2:1 female:male lecturers as well as 4:1 females:males as students.
    It is made clear on their website that not only are men not wanted, if courses for their gender are to go by-but that men per se are not part of any plans, any inclusions unless as SJW filler.

    Never knew this…but this will be coming soon.

    Lot of “cliame change ” stuff mentioned above.
    It`s simply a commercial crock, a cartel aimed at making people buy only approved stuff, as deemed by the one world government with China manufacturing, Islam providing manpower and oil, Africa providing manpower and raw resources, America to finance ans polce it. But all under Islamic blessing, with Europe the test bed for this one world shite.

    Was listening to the R4 news at ten last night. Brazilian election. Lost count of the number of times the reporter assured us that Mr Bolsonaro was ‘far-right’. There was no explanation of what made Mr Bolsonaro ‘far right’, or the significance thereof. His name couldn’t be mentioned without that adjective, however.
    My impression of the reporter was that he wouldn’t have been able to explain it, anyway. With round 2 of the election due soon, the bbc babbling brook may be expected to continue: far right, far right, far right….
    (Looked on Wiki to see if Mr Bolsonaro’s Christian name was FARRIGHT, but apparently it’s Jair.)

    Yet again on the radio this morning I heard someone from the Left being interviewed about Judge Kavanagh. I think it was on Woman’s Hour but it could have been on Today (sorry, listening in the car and went out twice). But the chap was from the Guardian’s Desk in New York. There was the repeated comments how the Judge’s appointment would tip the balance of the Supreme Court to the Right and cause a set back that could last a generation.
    There seems to be the assumption amongst the BBC and its friends that there is a G-d given right for the balance on the Supreme Court to be tipped to the Left and implied, ‘how dare Trump make it otherwise’.

      You just can’t win with a BBC that on one hand tirelessly gives a forum to rent a quote types complaining about casting not reflecting their desired race/gender/religion and then on the other hand, quoting a writer who criticises a drama featuring strong women thus:

      “these narratives pretended “sexism and racism in our institutions” had gone away.”

      When will these people realise that the ordinary person just doesn’t give a fig about the phoney injustices perceived by the privileged few?

      I would much prefer a news organisation, especially if tax-funded, to concentrate on accurate and balanced reporting of important issues instead of the incessant trivial dross it insists on feeding us.

      This professor is not even the first UK professor this month to have been reported as denigrating this nation on the basis of the advantages that we all, still, derive from the historical racist exploitation of the Commonwealth people and slavery.

      My point is, if this premise is true, then the very same people complaining about it are, themselves, beneficiaries of this nation’s past and that professors would certainly be high up in any ranking of such beneficiaries.

      Piers Morgan is quite right to ask why he would want to live here, I would also have asked if he felt hypocritical about benefiting from the very advantages he complains about. It’s a shame our unfit for purpose BBC would never boldly go there too, although I can think of other places to where I would prefer it to go.

I say ‘boys’, but our forces are not nearly diverse enough for this operation – no girls, no trans women, plus Ramadan is coming up soon.

      What nonsense. Ask these brave men and women to train to risk their lives in our defence but deny them the right to freedom of speech, freedom of association and freedom of thought. Weren’t the legions of men fighting 75 years ago doing so to prevent this very fascist, dictatorial group think?

      Just another gormless institution that thinks that the way to recruit more people is to make the entrance criteria even weaker, even more inclusive to those who aren’t suited to army life and do everything they can to stifle free thought. What they don’t grasp though is that it’s the very short-sighted ‘right on’, don’t shout at someone in training agenda that is putting off the very kind of people that would be more likely to go over the top of the trench.

      How long before every detachment is assigned a political officer?

      ps I’m sure Tommy has spoken more about one of our own soldiers being butchered on our ‘safe’ streets than the Army or authorities ever have. No surprise why the squaddies would therefore have time for him. He’s got their back more than their superiors do.

    The bBbc Webshite World News has two stories about France. A couple of French rappers, who had a scuffle in an airport have been sentenced and Frances Most Famous Nazi Hunting Couple have been given an award.

    The national day of protest against Macron and his policies today, organised by French unions, that saw thousands march and throw tear gas and missiles at the riot police who were deployed and fought with demonstrators in an attempt to maintain the peace, unsuccessfully, across France in cities such as Paris, Nantes, Nimes, Marseilles, Rennes, Tours and Bayonne? Nothing.

    The bBbc have, to my knowledge, not reported this, it didn’t happen, it doesn’t matter. Macron has no problems, we must envy France, the future of the EU is rosy.

    And Our Tony has the gall to lecture the print media and call for more honest journalism, to claim that the bBbc “have a duty to instill public confidence in professional journalism” and wants the bBbc “experts to inform audiences …… with integrity, accuracy and focus”.

    Minister appointed to reduce suicides

    London is hosting a world mental health summit and, as the event gets under way, Theresa May has announced the appointment in England of a minister for preventing suicide. Jackie Doyle-Price will work to reduce stigma around the subject and, the prime minister said, “prevent the tragedy of suicide taking too many lives”. Although suicide rates are falling, 4,500 people take their own lives every year.

    And what, possibly could this be subtly trying to do?

    ‘I didn’t realise what happened to me was rape’

    We started dancing together. He offered me a drink. Later, I woke up lying in the grass. The bass from the party thudded faintly through the ground. I was reassured that I hadn’t gone too far. It was cold, the ground was damp with dew. There was someone on top of me, he was trying to force himself inside me, but my body had frozen.

    I realised that it was not a dream. I saw who it was. The shock hit me: how could it be him? I knew him. Everyone knew him.

    BbC in overdrive… OK, ignore the diverse group of friends that never happened. The facts reported are 25% of young people give up drinking.

    Headline could also read “muslims” represent 25% of young people.

    From the article “And the number of lifetime abstainers also increased significantly, from 9% in 2005 to 17% in 2015″……. er…… er…..

    Come on BbC!!! It’s obvious to anyone why drinking alcohol is reducing among young people – it is not a health trend!! Stop reporting one thing as another

    Haddaway, man, pet !

    The Tyne Bridge is 90 years old and a BBC tv news report on the anniversay was going well enough until the female reporter is scripted to ask the cringeworthy question: “were any women involved in the building of the bridge?” It turns out there was one, but we know she knew that already, or she wouldn’t have asked.

    We know how this works at the BBC – because tech show presenter Spencer Kelly once let slip that when the BBC go along to any organisation to make a report they always ask for a female they can interview. Hence we know the relentless over-representation of a divisive feminist point of view is direct BBC policy.

    Rather than build bridges the BBC acts to divide society and to sow grievance.

      GW,
      I watched Tommy’s short video on this subject. I’m not surprised at the Army’s reaction to their unwitting involvement. Personally, I am comfortable with it.
      I have variously referred to any peoples uprising in this so-called, “Democracy” and the fact that it is, depending upon the intensity of the uprising, highly likely that when the first line fails to contain – the police – the army would be called in. My view, for what its worth, is that large numbers of the police will refuse to confront the people. The Army? No different.
      What we see here in the Army reaction, if I’m not mistaken, is fear. Plain and simple. Albeit unofficial, the Army lads have not disguised their support for Tommy and all he stands for. The top brass of the Army and Government should take heed: they may have a shock if the police or Army is called in to contain the public en masse. That will be real democracy.

      I’ve been asking the same question and I’m wondering whether their inability to define ‘far right’ is because they’re malicious or simply because they’re too thick. (You need a little knowledge of History and also Politics to explain this).
      Probably a bit of both.

        It’s why I label al beeb as “Far Left” its exclusionary bias does take it to that end of the spectrum whereas in truth those who differ from its views of the world are falsely labelled as “far right”

        Disposing of non compliant views like mine was a cause for brexit as the ReichEU has the same mindset in Brussels.

      Nick Ferrari had a Russian on his crap show early this morning to ask him about the Russian spies. Mr Ferrari did his usual trick, never making allowances for the Russian who was trying to explain himself in English, never allowing him to complete a sentence, showing no patience while the Russian tried to get his point across and then ending the piece with rudeness and personal insults.

    Highways England announces new plans for a much needed new Thames tunnel and how does the BBC report it – apparently only from the Friends of the Earth perspective!

    A new road linking Kent and Essex would almost double capacity across the River Thames, Highways England has said.
    The route of the new road tunnel under the river would also almost halve the northbound crossing times at the Dartford Crossing, the agency said.
    It is claimed the scheme, for which motorists will be charged, will be the largest road upgrade project since the building of the M25.
    Friends of the Earth said the crossing would lead to more air pollution.
    Jenny Bates from the environmental group said: “It’s astonishing that in the week the UN is warning of the need for urgent action to avoid catastrophic climate change, the UK government is boasting about building more roads.
    “This road development will only encourage more cars, vans, lorries and traffic, pumping more air pollution and climate-damaging emissions into our environment.
    “Politicians need to take their foot off the accelerator in order to protect the planet.”

      I know it’s now a Dart tag but maybe if they removed the toll charges from the crossing – you know the ones they said would be removed after 10 years or so when the construction costs had been paid back – there wouldn’t be as much congestion.

    The bBbc is like a dog with a bone on this one, the demands to legalise abortion in Northern Ireland by the likes of Diana Johnson and Stella Creasy, the Labour MPs for Hull North and Walthamstow respectively. I’m in no way convinced that their motives, and those of Amnesty, are down to genuine concerns for the rights and health of women in Northern Ireland, but just a couple of points.

    Firstly, mind your own effin’ business. This a devolved issue not to be decided by an English, Scottish or Welsh MP or electorate. And definitely not to be decided by anyone in Eire.

    Secondly, abortion is not a criminal offence in Northern Ireland if
    “there is a risk that the mother may die or is likely to suffer long-term damage, which is serious, to her physical or mental health”.
    Is that not nuanced enough to cover and address most issues and situations that might cause someone to seek an abortion?

    I confess to being a man and so to many of those pushing this I am probably not allowed to have an opinion on this but I do have a vote and as a husband and father of three Northern Irish girls have probably more right than the bBbc and the chattering classes in Westminster.

    I found this Spiked article about QT moderately interesting, and irritating at the same time:

    Down with racial thinking

    “A white audience member claimed that Britain is ‘one of the least racist societies in Europe’. He was responding to an earlier claim made by panellist George Mpanga (aka George the Poet) that ‘xenophobia is something the British people harbour in their hearts’. Mpanga was annoyed by the audience member, whose argument didn’t accord with his own experience of being unfairly searched by police officers.”

    So we have xenophobia “in our hearts”? Well thank you, Mr Poet (Mr Zephisomething was obviously unavailable). My husband has been searched three times and didn’t have a problem with it. If we are in fact one of the least racist societies in Europe, it would be nice to get a little credit occasionally – provided it actually is a virtue and not a weakness. It goes on to say:

    “Only the Swedes were consistently more progressive in their answers to these questions. “

    Referring to Sweden as “more progressive” is not the most convincing argument I’ve heard this year. And more lunacy here:
