A terrifying vision to
sharpen Tory minds

Daily Mail [UK], by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 5/26/2014 2:36:06 AM

If Thursday’s local election results were a kick in the pants for Westminster’s smug political class, last night’s European triumphs for Ukip were nothing less than a humiliation. Instead of addressing voters’ genuine concerns on mass immigration and the corrupt, power-hungry EU machine, the big three parties believed they could defeat Nigel Farage with smears and lazy accusations of ‘racism’. The Mail--while, we repeat, carrying no torch for Ukip--warned that such arrogant, cack-handed tactics would backfire, and so it proved. Traditional Labour and Tory supporters, tired of being lectured by professional politicians who have never had a job in the

Comments:
From the American Heritage Dictionary:

cack-hand·ed (kak´han´did)
adj. Chiefly British
1. Left-handed.
2. Awkward; clumsy.
[Perhaps from Old Norse keikr, bent backwards; akin to Danish keite, left-handed.]


Surprised to see this expression is still permitted.

Loved the line "...tired of being lectured by professional politicians who have never had a job in the real world..."
Hmm, who else does that describe? Let me think....

Remember, the creepy Jim Messina and the communist David Axelrod are there to win the election for the Leftists in the U.K. Just like they won (?) the election for the One in this country. Perhaps voter fraud and criminal moves to win at any cost will be more difficult to accomplish in the U.K. than it is in this country.

Like the ripples of the Howard Jarvis "earthquake" that hit CA in 1978 and propagated to other states: ripples from this "earthquake" will propagate across the "pond".

It is time for a "USIP" to sharpen a few Beltway minds.

Hopefully the constant demonrat shrieks of "Racism!" Will blow up in their faces here as well, come November.

The German authorities have summoned the US ambassador in Berlin after a man was arrested on suspicion of spying. The US diplomat "was asked to help in the swift clarification" of the case, the foreign ministry said. German officials confirmed the arrest but released no other details. [Snip] The BBC´s Steve Evans in Berlin says the new allegation of American spying on an ally may make it harder for the US to get German help in its efforts to oppose Russian activity in Ukraine, and also to control Iranian nuclear ambitions. ´Zero trust´ German media say the man arrested this

While David Cameron and his government are still reeling from the "coup" pulled off by the European Parliament last week in Brussels, when MEPs seized control of the selection of the next president of the European Commission away from national leaders, the EU elite are wasting no time manoeuvring to take away even more power from Britain and other member states in a series of smaller "coups." Coup One: First there is the manoeuvring by the innocently-named "Friends of the European Commission."

Fracking Has ´Cut Carbon Emissions More

Fracking has led to a greater reduction in carbon emissions than all the world’s wind turbines and solar panels put together, the Council of Europe heard last week. Speaking at a meeting of the council, which promotes co-operation between all European nations, Chris Faulkner, chief executive of Breitling Energy, explained how shale gas has led the way in reducing carbon emissions in the U.S.: [Snip] In other words, the US shale gas revolution has by itself reduced global emissions more than all the well-intentioned solar and wind in the world."

RAF Flight Sergeant Sidney Marshall died last month aged 90 at his home in Lytham St Annes, near Blackpool. But he was a widower who had no children and seven of his eight siblings were too frail to attend. The only one who could was brother Bill, 85. Undertaker Eddy Jacobs was so touched by the story that he appealed for strangers to give Sidney a fitting farewell on social networking sites like Twitter. Hundreds responded, with well-wishers yesterday including veterans, schoolchildren and even Hell’s Angels sporting poppies and Union Flags. [Snip] “We were flabbergasted. There’s 500 people here. It

High Court judges declared that the "back-to-work" scheme launched by the Department for Work and Pensions infringed the "right to a fair trial" under the European Convention on Human Rights. And lawyers claimed the Government could be obliged to pay £130million in Jobseeker´s Allowance hand outs that were previously blocked. Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith was understood to be incandescent about the ruling last night.

Amazon dragged into EU tax crackdown

Amazon has been dragged into a major EU tax crackdown after officials demanded documents relating to the online retail giant´s tax affairs. The EU´s competition commission has asked Luxembourg, where Amazon´s European business is based, to hand over details on the company´s tax payments, according to a report in the FT. An EU official told the newspaper that Brussels was seeking more information on the nature of the tax deal that had been struck between Luxembourg and Amazon. The move could lead to a full-blown investigation into the retailer´s European tax arrangements. The online retail giant has joined a growing

Former S.C. Treasurer Thomas Ravenel is expected to announce his candidacy for U.S. Senate on Friday as an independent hopeful against Republican incumbent Lindsey Graham. Ravenel said Wednesday that a "large announcement" is planned for Friday and that he will appear in Greenville, but otherwise declined to give specifics. A copy of Ravenel´s schedule says he plans on attending the Red White and Blue Festival in Greenville on July 4. Ravenel recently confirmed he had hired a private vendor to help him collect the minimum 10,000 signatures of South Carolina voters he needs to be placed on the November ballot

After Big Oil and Fracking, Greenpeace´s
Next Target Is... Lego
Breitbart London [UK], by M. E. Synon    Original Article

Only days after Patrick Moore, the disillusioned co-founder of Greenpeace, said the green movement has become a "combination of extreme political ideology and religious fundamentalism rolled into one," Greenpeace seems determined to prove Moore was right. The group has launched a fun-sucking, fundamentalist attack on the toy company Lego, claiming "Shell is using Lego to clean up its image for dirty oil drilling" in the Arctic. Greenpeace, like an environmental Bible-thumper, demands, "Lego, how will you rebuild what Shell destroys?" In fact all Lego has done is agree a deal in which the Anglo-Dutch petroleum giant gives away Shell-branded Lego

He has been described as the world’s most dangerous terrorist. The ingenious explosive devices designed by Ibrahim al-Asiri explain why intelligence officials on both sides of the Atlantic have raised fresh concerns about airport security. The 32-year-old, originally from Saudi Arabia, is a leading figure in the Yemeni-based al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, and has been the brains behind a number of high-profile aircraft bomb plots. These have included the so-called “underpants bomber” who tried to blow up a plane as it approached Detroit airport on Christmas Day 2009, and the ink cartridge bombs uncovered at Dubai and East Midlands

What unites Isis and al-Qaeda?

Ever since Islamist militants emerged as the dominant force in the conflicts in Iraq and Syria, much has been written about how groups such Isis, which is currently in the process of establishing an Islamic Caliphate in northern Iraq, should be distinguished from the mainstream al-Qaeda movement. Isis fighters are so extreme, or so the argument goes, that even al-Qaeda is appalled at their barbarous treatment of their fellow Muslims, to the extent that Ayman al-Zawahiri, al-Qaeda´s somewhat isolated leader, has attempted to disown them. But as transportation chiefs on both sides of the Atlantic are now giving active consideration

Hundreds of West Africans could be carrying the deadly Ebola virus and not know it, potentially infecting hundreds more, as cash-strapped governments and overwhelmed aid agencies struggle to contain the virus´s spread.

Maybe we’ve been conned. There’s a growing recognition that Barack Obama is an incompetent poser, working out of his depth, and his administration is the gang that can’t shoot straight. There’s a lot of evidence to support that belief. Everything he touches becomes a bloody mess, like crushed bones and bits of flesh caught in the tracks of a tank slicing through a rank of soldiers (or civilians). Iraq, Syria, Egypt — all gone, as prospects for countries with a prosperous and democratic future. The “reset” with Russia, meant to ensure that America and the replacement republic of the old

Hillary Clinton continued to justify her high-dollar speaking fees on Friday, telling ABC News’ Ann Compton that all of the money she’s made from colleges over the past year and a half has been donated to her family’s foundation. “All of the fees have been donated to the Clinton Foundation for it to continue its life-changing and life-saving work. So it goes from a foundation at a university to another foundation,” Clinton said when asked about the criticism she and her husband have faced recently for their wealth. Hillary Clinton reportedly makes roughly $200,000 for each speaking engagement. And recent reports show

The Vancouver (British Columbia) Board of Education has approved a sweeping new policy for accommodating lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, two-spirit, queer, questioning and “all sexual and gender identities,” including the creation of three pronouns, replacing masculine and feminine with xe, xem and xyr (pronounced ze, zem and zur). Two spirit is an Aboriginal term which means having both feminine and masculine spirits. It´s not limited to gender expression or sexuality, but encompasses them both while incorporating a spiritual element. It´s a standalone identity, not an Aboriginal term for gay lesbian.

President Obama has, except on fleeting occasions, routinely disdained the customary Oval Office language of compromise and coalition-building for the low arts of sophistry and belittlement. That was to be expected, given his background as a Chicago community organizer and product of that city´s corrupt Democrat political machine. But Obama has far exceeded dismal expectations. No previous American president employed the systematic distortion of fact and mendacious characterization of opponents that have typified Obama´s presidency. His "so sue me" speech last week is a classic illustration of the community organizer practicing Saul Alinsky´s 13th rule: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize

Climate alarmism is "the biggest fraud in the field of science" and the 97% consensus claim is nonsensical, Apollo 7 astronaut Walter Cunningham tells MRCTV in a preview of his presentation at the upcoming Heartland Institute climate conference, July 7-9. "Since about 2000, I looked farther and farther into it," Col. Cunningham (USMC, Ret.) tells MRCTV in an exclusive interview. "I found that not one of the claims that the alarmists were making out there had any bearings, whatsoever. And, so, it was kind of a no-brainer to come to the conclusion."

Sources inside MSNBC say former White House Spokesman Jay Carney, who recently resigned from his post at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, will likely be headed to MSNBC. Carney is in talks for a contributor position. If it happens, Carney would follow in the natural footsteps of a few other aides to President Obama who were welcomed into the MSNBC family upon leaving their jobs. The last White House Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs, became an MSNBC contributor in May, 2013, while David Axelrod, a top aide to Obama, became one in February 2013.

The United States added a stunning 288,000 jobs last month, sending the unemployment rate down to 6.1 percent and the Dow Jones Industrial Average shooting over 17,000 for the first time. June’s job numbers marked the fifth straight month of job gains over 200,000, the best stretch since the 1990s tech boom. A Bloomberg survey of economists expected an increase of 215,000 jobs in June. The unemployment rate dropped .2 percent to 6.1, the lowest since September 2008. May’s job report was also revised upward, showing 224,000 jobs added. The numbers follow strong reports for the Bay State last month, with

The headline of today’s jobs report, that 288,000 jobs were created in the last month, is positive. At least, it is better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. However, as with most economic reports these days, there is a veneer of good news — but when you look closer, the White House is using the positive headlines to hide the growing deterioration of the American workforce. I’m sure by now people are tired of reading about the bad news, and I’ll admit I am weary of having to blow the whistle and expose the truth every

NEW YORK — Hillary Rodham Clinton´s book "Hard Choices" is on track to be one of the year´s top nonfiction books despite another slip in sales. Nielsen BookScan says "Hard Choices" sold 26,000 copies during its third week of publication.
