Weekend Thread 4 July 2020

As a little injection of normality takes place – let’s see the angle the BBC take . supportive ? Critical ? Judging by the way it has been undermining the national effort for four months – based on the anti brexit Project Fear Model -the BBC will seek out the worst of things -as decent people try to get on with their lives .

    @FedUp2 we are in the wrong game
    In that Triggernometry video basically all they do is sit and read out PAID viewer comments for £5, £10 even £100 each time
    That’s wrong the highest payer shouldn’t get the biggest voice.

    Antifa and BLM have achieved a clever bit of propaganda, just in their names.

    Of course everyone is against fascism and agrees that black lives matter. So when a mic is shoved in someone’s face and they’re asked ‘do you support BLM?’, they’re almost forced to say yes, even though most sane moderate people don’t support the aims of the far-left, extremist, anti-white, anti-capitalist terrorist organisation.

    (Whose coffers are now awash with funds which will be used to support the Dems and to continue their nefarious activities worldwide.)

    You can always rely on the BBC.
    A couple got married at 0001 under the newly relaxed rules.
    Wearing her dress, the bride looks lovely and, dare I say it, rather buxom.
    And with short hair and a black shirt, the groom is very smart too.
    Both, needless to say, this being the BBC, are female.
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-53288388

    What are the chances of that?
    Well actually we know the answer. According to ONS marriage statistics, it is about 1 in 65.

    But this being the BBC, it’s……errr…….rather higher.

    BBC, Climate Change & Censorship: An Interview With Benny Peiser

    Peiser says “the BBC is so biased that MPs are beginning to consider cutting the license fee, or abolishing the license fee altogether, because people are beginning to be upset by the BBC’s bias. This is a self-defeating policy; the BBC is digging its own grave by annoying half of the population who are known to be sceptical about the alarmist claims which are not substantiated, which are not founded on any evidence. They are only based on some kinds of computer modelling, which is not scientific evidence”

    We’re Facing A Tsunami Of Censorship
    https://www.spectator.co.uk/article/were-facing-a-tsunami-of-censorship

    The most important scientific fact censored by the BBC is that scientists now have a formula to calibrate carbon dioxide warming on any Planetary Atmosphere. So we can calibrate man made warming on Earth using a formula obtained from the observation of all known Planetary Atmospheres and which works for Nitrogen, Methane, Hydrogen and Carbon Dioxide Atmospheres and all Atmospheric pressures.

    The Earths Grey body temperature is 154 Kelvin, and the Earths average surface temperature is 287 Kelvin. So we have 133 Kelvin for the Greenhouse effect. Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide is 400 parts per million or one part per 2,500. So 133 divided by 2,500 equals 0.0532 Kelvin for Carbon Dioxide warming. But isotopic evidence shows that only a maximum of four percent of CO2 in the Atmosphere could be man-made, so therefore in two hundred years, man-made CO2 has contributed 0.002128 Kelvin to Global Warming. However the oldest evidence shows three percent of 300 parts per million was volcanic CO2. So man-made CO2 has contributed only 0.000931 Kelvin or “One Thousandth of a Degree Kelvin”.

    The problem censored by the BBC has been at the very core of the dogmatic Arrhenius hypothesis. This “Hoax” has a 100 parts per million increase in man made carbon dioxide since the Industrial Revolution, producing a one degree Kelvin increase in global surface temperature. The isotopic evidence obtained by Astronomers analysing the Earths Atmosphere showing that only 16 parts per million of the CO2 in the Atmosphere could be from man made emissions, being the most significant fact censored by the BBC.

    As for the real cause of Global Warming. Changes to the Earth’s Cloud Albedo. Nir Shaviv is one of the scientists who produce evidence for Cloud Albedo changes. Forbes Censored Interview With Prof Nir Shaviv https://www.thegwpf.com/prof-nir-shaviv-forbes-censored-an-interview-with-me/

    The facts obtained for the real cause of Climate Change are: The unadjusted 0.76 Kelvin increase was caused by the fact that 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.

    So Climate Change was caused by a 8.6 percent reduction in Cloud Albedo, followed by a Pause/Hiatus/Peak.

    The BBC looks for its first post lockdown scalp . It is Mr Nigel Farage – courtesy to Mr Edward Davey – The acting leader of a small political party called ‘the liberals “. Mr Davey has told the BBC that he has reported Mr Farage to the police for having a pint of beer today – and perhaps breaching the quarantine rule for people returning from the USA . Mr Farage was apparently in the US 2weeks ago with President Trump .

    Kent Police , no doubt , will eagerly investigate Mr Davey s complaint .

    The BBC and most of the msm will of course sneer at Trump’s 4th of July speech at Mount Rushmore, and will heavily edit it in any reporting.

    But it was a magisterial speech, well worth reading or viewing in its entirety. (Links below)

    The President gave a history lesson to all the morons destroying statues and monuments.

    He also showed that he (and his entourage and speech writers) understands what is behind the current wave of savage anarchy, and what is at stake.

    “In our schools, our newsrooms, even our corporate boardrooms, there is a new far-left fascism that demands absolute allegiance. If you do not speak its language, perform its rituals, recite its mantras, and follow its commandments, then you will be censored, banished, blacklisted, persecuted, and punished. It’s not going to happen to us…

    Make no mistake. This left-wing cultural revolution is designed to overthrow the American Revolution. In so doing they would destroy the very civilization that rescued billions from poverty, disease, violence, and hunger, and that lifted humanity to new heights of achievement, discovery, and progress. To make this possible, they are determined to tear down every statue, symbol, and memory of our national heritage…”

    My favourite line: “We only kneel to Almighty God.”

    Amen Mr President, amen.

    On 2nd July, HMG added nearly 2,000 (yes, two thousand!) new Covid infections to the Kent count. The BBC described it thus: “On 2 July, data on tests in the community were added to the number of cases for English local authorities causing the numbers to jump sharply.”

    Since then, the daily figure has been – of course – higher. The dream of less than a handful of new cases has become more distant. At least the figures could be said to be more accurate. However, it wrecks any consistent trend watching.

    Saw all this furore in the media and our streets recently over BLM and for once I thought I was onside with white upper middle England and the media.

    After all we as a family have always positively discriminated in favour of taking on black male dogs as for some strange reason they find it hardest to find a home.

    My research prove to once again differ from the salivating BBC et all over the state of black lives in the wider community. It demonstrably shows white male boys from deprived and poorer backgrounds coming pretty much last on all the metrics… Sadly it appears they carry little cache from our media and politicians but perhaps as they busily round up and ruin anybody who has the temerity to say ‘white lives matter’ I should not be surprised.I hope and trust the anger at this is deep and widespread in our community.

    As a footnote, again it might be one for our quality journalists, apparently according to the BBC they are full of them, to investigate and explain – how come in my area 98% of those living on the streets are white and male made up with significant numbers from the forces and those recently out of prison?

    Lots to get your teeth in there BBC/ Sky but I shall not hold my breath.

    If I were a writer producing a film script for the Epstein/Maxwell story this is how I would tell it.

    Epstein is in prison sitting on a lot of dirt about some important people, who would like to see him disappear. At this time Maxwell is nowhere in sight.

    Epstein does a deal. I will keep quiet but find a bum who has recently died and plant his body in my cell, and manufacture a story which leads to suspicions that I was murdered whilst the authorities claim it was suicide. Off I go with some facial surgery and a large bag of money to a new life.

    But I want my girl friend who is hiding in France avoiding awkward questions. Eventually, for no sound reason, she buys a house in New Hampshire and is arrested, leading to speculation that either she will be suicided or will do a deal. Alas, Maxwell succumbs to corona virus, and within a couple of dramatic weeks where everything is done to save her live eventually dies, or rather a bum is found to replace her and off she goes to live in peace
    with lover boy.

    All of those ghastly big shots breathe a sigh of relief and the entire story dies.

    I offer the story to the BBC who agree to produce the drama on condition that a black transvestite has a major part and that suspicion of wrongdoing is directed
    at President Trump.

      Well, good for you. Keep your mask on if it makes you feel any safer.
      I’m not wearing one of these hideous face panties for anybody. Nor am I going to don a tinfoil hat or hop about on one leg.

      It really worries me how compliant and complacent we’ve become. So many of us are behaving as though this relatively mild Covid is a cross between Spanish flu and the Bubonic plague. And we’re being encouraged to do so. It’s not. And the freedoms we as a nation have given up are enormous.

      Being told where to stand, where to walk, who I can meet with. We should have risen in one voice and told them to go fxxx themselves.
      We should have continued as we initially started; being cautious, sensible, but not hysterical. Like Sweden. They were warned their mortality toll would be in excess of 90,000 by July…and what is it, just north of 5,000.

      Some of the scenes we’re witnessing ( and of course they’ll show us the most outrageous) after sixteen weeks of government imposed imprisonment are only natural. Yes, they’re a bit rowdy. Undoubtedly some of them are a tad boisterous, but…

      The other week the same condemnatory media were full of praise for the brave “protesters of BLM as they mobbed the police and attacked our monuments.
      No fear of Covid then…

              The main reason for wearing masks is not for the benefit of the wearer but for those around him/her. If you can maintain a 2m gap outside then the value of a mask is minimal.

              The factor which won’t go away is asymptomatic transmission. That is when you have the virus but don’t realise it, because you have no symptoms. But you can still pass it on to someone else who becomes badly affected, or passes it on to a vulnerable person. Hence you should wear a mask if you cannot maintain 2m, but mainly for the benefit of others, not yourself.
              And wash hands to prevent touch transmission.

              It’s all a bit of a ball-ache admittedly but the alternatives are continued hard lockdown or to to kill more people than necessary.

            Brissels, maybe this will put your mind at rest to some extent.


            To meet 4 people who had the virus you’d need to meet 10,000. If you consider that’s a great enough risk for you to wear a mask, I entirely respect your decision, particularly if you feel vulnerable to the disease.

            But I’m sorry, the rest of us cannot go on indefinitely with the economy partially shut down and with everyday tasks such as food shopping reduced to an absolute palaver. The damage being done is incalculable.

            On a personal note, I am now several months behind on scheduled bowel screening and prostate tests. My brother died from prostate cancer five years ago. How many more people will die from missed cancers because the NHS has ceased vast amounts of its other work lest it be overwhelmed? That may have been temporarily justifiable three months ago but it has not been anywhere near that state for some time now.

            We all need to make our own decisions as to how vulnerable we feel, whether to Covid, flu or any other infectious disease and act accordingly. But we cannot expect everyone else to put their lives on indefinite hold.

              For me, personally and as a matter of public policy, the mask is an outward badge of fear, of distrust and of passive aggression. I’m sorry but I repeat my previous comment – we have lived with infections for decades. Medical masks are for medics. Take sensible hygiene precautions. Don’t cough in my face & I won’t spit in your eye. I had to smile when I saw new regulations about restaurant staff washing their hands – what on earth were they doing previously?

They were anxious to show others that they were not the sort of older generation peasant country dwellers happy to hock a loogie in public and dramatically spit it whenever the urge took them.

        Stew / Roland
        I wonder if / how many petitions have ever directly or indirectly changed anything ?

        I think it is just a box ticket to show that politicians are ‘involving the public ‘ – when in real life they just prioritise what they choose.

        The other thing that stinks with the responses to petitions is the ‘letter’ explaining why nothing is going to be done . It is usually pure civil service speak – drafted and redrafted to justify no change .

        Meanwhile the punters feel like mugs – and those like me laugh when some snowflake – usually a liberal – starts going on about ‘getting the public Involved ‘.

    Seeing Sir Ed Davey attempt to ‘fit up’ Nigel Farage today made me think what a pitiful state our politics are in.

    He is the prospective leader of a major ( well you know what I mean) party yet has time to ‘tell teacher’. The BBC of course went with this story as headline news and no-one sought out the facts first.

    Nigel Farage is far to canny an operator to be caught out so easily and I am sure his beer tasted so much sweeter as Ed made a mug of himself and helped further damage the image of his party. Does our Ed look fit to be a leader based on such decision making?

    The conundrum is the idiot is a Knight of the Realm and the guy who actually creates on the political landscape is not.

    Whilst on idiots I hope another idiot/ Knight of the Realm Sir Kier lives to rue the day he blended the knee – he’s a top barrister ( I think I am suppose to put allegedly here but anyway it seem appropriate) where’s the brief and research?
    Zilch. Don’t give me BLM ‘hijacked’ that’s only for the gullible.

    Why having just got over the May/ Corbyn game of competing to be the most useless leader going is the bar not rising?

    Thinking about it I may have just answered my own question as I recall a spin on Gordon Brown being told we would look back at him as our golden chancellor.

    Times don’t really change do they?

        One reason put forward by a Muslim Community Leader in today’s MoS, is the lack of English spoken by much of the Asian community in Leicester, and unbelievably they have a fatalistic approach to death – when their time is up its up, and many didn’t know about ‘lockdown’. This doesn’t surprise me, as many Asians don’t watch British news or tv, preferring their own Asian channels instead.

    AT LAST! Priti Patel to overhaul Tony Blair’s ‘soft’ UK asylum laws

    According to a source close to Ms Patel she is “fed up with lefty activist lawyers” using public money to bring “relentless” challenges to attempts to deport foreign nationals, usually criminals, who have no right to be in the country.

    The source noted: “The Home Secretary is clear that she does not want murderers, drug pushers or grooming gang members who have no right to be here to remain in this country.”

    Around 14,000 asylum claims a year are rejected by the courts but only a third of these claimants are then deported, the rest stay.

    The problem came to a head in February when a last minute court ruling prevented the deportation of 25 out of 50 people, including a killer, two rapists and seven violent criminals, back to the Carribean.

    More recently a group of Afghans awaiting a decision on their claims were given permission to sue the government over the conditions they are being held in.

      I was very optimistic at the start of the year that the President would get his second term and that the swamp would at least be drained. I thought that the Durham investigation would result in indictments in the spring and trials throughout the campaigning season all of which would boost the President. And of course the US economy would be his strongest suit providing jobs for all Americans of all colours.
      Since then we have heard virtually nothing from Durham and its now too late to get any convictions before the election. Deep state still calls the shots I think. The pandemic has badly damaged the economy and many of those out of work will , unfairly, blame the President. Black Lives Matter has caused chaos which ought to be driving voters to back the President but this doesn’t seem to be the case.
      What should have been a resounding win may turn into a defeat and the deep state will have resisted the most powerful attack on it ever. We can be certain that they will never allow another Donald Trump to take them on, ever.
      We can only hope that despite the odds President Trump does win otherwise the Wokists will get stronger and as someone posted a few weeks ago it will impact the UK and we will probably be forced back inside the EU.

    EXPOSED: The state school teachers who are moonlighting as tutors charging £95 an hour over Zoom – while their pupils are stuck at home missing out on education

    Hundreds of teachers are offering tutorials for up to £95 an hour on Zoom
    Some boasted of their availability during school hours to an undercover reporter
    Four in ten pupils have had little or no contact with teachers during lockdown

      there was no lack of eagerness from prospective tutors when The Mail on Sunday registered with the website Tutor Hunt.

      Within minutes of signing up, a reporter was bombarded with messages from maths and English teachers.

      Most said they could only work outside school hours, but others appeared happy to break the rules.

      Omar, a ‘full-time mathematics teacher’ who boasts of being available all day for £95-an-hour lessons, was adamant that moonlighting would not clash with commitments at a secondary school.

      ‘At the moment I am working from home due to Covid-19, hence the all day [availability],’ he said.

      Omar did not respond to a request for comment once we revealed out investigation

        Pavan, a maths teacher at a Birmingham secondary school, was also adamant that her £35 hour-long tutorials would not hamper his main job.

        ‘Yes I’m able to do school hours depending on time and day. I teach via Zoom. One-to-one at GCSE is £35,’ she said.

        ‘I am going into school but not everyday – we are on a rota basis –some days from home some from school. So Wednesday/Thursday will work well for me.’

        Challenged later about her private work, Pavan said: ‘My tutor times would be school day but after my teaching hours are over.’ She then deleted her Tutor Hunt account.’

        In Enfield, North London, Irini, a ‘full time English teacher, is available to provide £37.50-an-hour GCSE English lessons on any school day apart from Monday.

        ‘My school has not reopened fully which means I am more available to provide online support,’ she wrote in a message.

    Possibly the most offensive ‘anti-racist’ I’ve heard on R4 yet (and that’s saying something) did her thing on ‘A point of view’ this morning. Bernadine Evaristo, apparently an author and ‘professor’ at Brunel sounded like a haughty teacher reading the riot act to a group of very, very naughty children (whites), who needed to get their act together, but fast!
    An enthusiastic BLM supporter, BE launched into an aggressive, loud-mouthed and self-righteous diatribe which I thought was a bit over the top, even for R4. She also sounded -dare I say it- quite thick, for a professor; her “arguments” (flaterry to call them that) are poorly thought through, her presentation skills embarrassingly basic, her entire pitch was ‘white racists, change quickly’.
    She needs to get herself off to Africa, in double quick time, where I think she will find a steep learning curve awaiting her. But at least she is unlikely to bump into too many of those people she clearly dislikes intensely.

    ‘Ministers pledge to double staff in job centres’

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-53297306

    May I here take the liberty of coining a new skeptical phrase for BBC agenda-driven news spin : “Despite Lockdown”

    ‘Chancellor Rishi Sunak is expected to pledge £800m to recruit 13,500 extra staff as part of an economic recovery package announced on Wednesday.’

    Well, it’s an ill wind that blows no one any good.

    The private sector may have been knee capped but at least we can expand the public sector…. almost infinitely.

    And Rishi Washy must have calculated that he will recoup in taxes at least a third of the salaries… so that’s all good then.

    But let’s not get overly optimistic that given enough invented cash the state can solve all our economic woes.

    ‘PCS union general secretary Mark Serwotka said the recruitment of extra staff for job centres was welcome….

    (BUT) … He also accused the government of being “reckless” by sending job centre staff back to work “when Covid-19 is still a threat”. ‘

    Great, let’s look forward to even more public employees languishing at home on full pay.

      No better than Blair creating numerous non jobs.
      Apparently the 13,500 posts are front line staff at the Jobcentre, ie their role isn’t to work out benefits, or help people fill in the claim forms or even find jobs, (they stopped doing that years ago,) but to ensure the claimants are doing the required 35 hours a week job search or whatever pointless hoop they come up with, all on the pain of a sanction for slipping up..
      They’ve got the universal credit in ‘lite’ mode at the moment, with little bullying, but will need the extra troops when it reverts back to normal soon.

      Well all this practice at clapping and getting on your knees feels like preparation for the arrival of ‘ the dear leader’.

      I can hardly wait, in homage to those who have saved us from Trump via postal voting and rioting, and here to have so fortunately avoided really leaving the EU. The primary excuse I suspect will be because the ‘pandemic’ has ruined the economy, neatly sidestepping the fact they were running it. Fully supported by the global media. If you disagree you are for re-education or loosing your job, if you still have one

      Maybe this is Sir Ed’s moment and I have answered the question as to why he became a Sir in the first place? He is he here after all to save us from ourselves and our odd wish to live in something approaching a democracy.

      It feels to me that we are at the point of seismic change, the global elite have not spent decades moving towards their nirvana to allow Trump a second term and the U.K. to genuinely break away from the EU.

      I suspect the coming months will prove to be ever more terrifying and disturbing. Time will tell.

      I hope to god I have to eat my words, Trump gets a second term and we cut the myriads tentacles of the EU, and I am the fool. Again time will tell.

        Precisely, but I suggest that even if DJT has a second term and the UK does satisfactorily sever the relationship with the EU, the Marxists under the control of Soros/China will not stop there. In fact, it may become even worse – a great deal worse because it has mass x velocity behind it. At best, a hiatus after November 3rd / December 31st. I’ve always envisioned the population breaking up politically into a fairly clean split of roughly 50/50 with the Right having superior numbers marginally.

    I don’t know if anyone has noticed, but the latest face saving device being used by left wing virtue signalling bandwaggon jumping idiots, is that Black Lives Matter has been ‘hijacked’ by the far left and that’s why they aren’t supporting it any longer.

    At every opportunity in every chance I have I put this lie to bed. BLM was always run by the ultra far Left, it was born of anti White race hate in the USA and it came to the UK on the back of this.

    It has never been hijacked it was always this way since the very begining and just because you didn’t bother to find out in your desire to signal how right on trendy leftie you are is no excuse!

    We were telling you this from the begining and your response was to smear us with the boringly predictable insult “far right” so now you are saying the same things we were telling you weeks ago does that make you “far right ” also? If not then where is the apology for those of us who told the truth about the false path you were treading?

    AS predictable as ever, the left cannot accept any kind of responsibility or even admit it fails. It never does anything wrong, and it never has.
