He smokes and drinks too much but

Wife gives unique insight into UKIP

Nigel Farage’s wife has denied her husband is racist, insisting he does not have a ‘bad bone in his body’. German-born Kirsten Farage said: ‘If he was a racist I wouldn’t be with him. I don’t think he has got a nasty bone in his body--he is not a bully, he likes things done properly.’ Mrs Farage added: ‘It hurts him being personally attacked but it doesn’t make me feel uncomfortable because I know he is not a racist.’ Speaking publicly for what is believed to be the first time, Mrs Farage, 49, gave a unique insight into what makes the Ukip

It always annoys me when I see somebody having to deny that he´s a "racist"; it´s as though he´s already capitulated to the hypersensitivities of the loony left and is merely haggling over definitions, and by the left´s definition, everything, including statistics, are racist.

There´s a story down in Texas that LBJ once told his PR man to start spreading the rumor that his political opponent had carnal relations with his livestock. "Now, Lyndon, you don´t think we´re gonna be able convince everybody that he´s a pig(censored), do you?" "Naw", LBJ shot back, "But let´s see if we can make the SOB have to deny it." And this is the same trap we fall into when we start having to deny offending the left´s hypersensitivities.

Italy finds 30 bodies
in migrant boat
BBC News [UK], by Alan Johnston    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 6/30/2014 9:10:27 AM     Post Reply
The Italian navy has found about 30 bodies in a fishing boat carrying hundreds of migrants between Sicily and the North African coast. The migrants who died appeared to have been asphyxiated. The discovery was made when rescuers boarded the vessel to evacuate a number of people said to be in distress, two of them pregnant women. The navy says that over the weekend it rescued more than 5,000 migrants trying to cross from North Africa. The figure was released soon after news emerged of the discovery of the bodies. The navy said that those who died were crammed into

Britain leaving the EU would be a ´disaster´,

Britain´s exit from the EU would be a "disaster" for Europe, a close ally of Angela Merkel has said as Germany attempts to woo David Cameron back into the European fold. Dr Michael Fuchs, the deputy chairman of Germany´s Social Democratic Union party joined his colleague Wolfgang Shaulble, the German finance minister in publicly announcing that the idea of a British exit would be "unimaginable" and that Germany "needs" their continued membership. Mr Cameron was last week out-voted by other EU leaders over the choice of Jean-Claude Junker, a former prime minister of Luxembourg and supporter of a federal Europe as the

VIDEO: Huge Explosion as Palestinian
Terrorists Hit Israeli Factory

Two rockets fired from the Gaza Strip on Saturday struck an industrial factory in the southern Israeli city of Sderot, according to a report from the European Jewish Press (EJP). A video that shows the incident reveals how damaging the so-called "home made" rockets used by Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad can really be. Sderot is just one kilometre from the Gaza border, and when air raid sirens sound, residents have less than 15 seconds to find their nearest shelter. Most buildings and schools in the area have been made bomb proof, though this is of little consolation to those in cars

Israeli Airstrike on Gaza

The Jerusalem Post has reported an ´unverified´ video which purports to show a super-precision Israeli airstrike somewhere in the Gaza Strip yesterday. The footage, which appears to be piece together from a number of CCTV cameras, shows how accurate Israeli targeting is when the country´s armed forces strikes at terrorists in Gaza – despite terrorists placing infrastructure and weaponry close to schools and in civilian buildings. The website reports that "Security cameras near the Shati refugee camp in the Gaza Strip allegedly recorded the assassination of two terrorists by the Israel Air Force." The car can be seen being struck with an

Outside Las Vegas’s Bellagio hotel tourists gasp in amazement as fountains shoot 500ft into the air, performing a spectacular dance in time to the music of Frank Sinatra. Gondolas ferry honeymooners around canals modelled on those of Venice, Roman-themed swimming pools stretch for acres, and thousands of sprinklers keep golf courses lush in the middle of the desert. But, as with many things in Sin City, the apparently endless supply of water is an illusion. America’s most decadent destination has been engaged in a potentially catastrophic gamble with nature and now, 14 years into a devastating drought, it is on the verge

Isis--the greatest social media users in the world. Marketing geniuses. Or so we are constantly told. The truth is, there is nothing surprising, or particularly difficult, about what they do. This group is, after all, comprised of predominantly young men in their twenties, many of whom have grown up in the West and will be completely at ease with Twitter, Instagram and YouTube. [Snip] They have even been tweeting pictures of cats holding guns, in a bizarre mash up of Internet and Jihadi culture. In their smartest coup, Isis released, on the Google Store, a now banned Android app called The Dawn of Glad Tidings.

It might sound like a scene from Hamlet: “We go to gain a little patch of ground... which is not tomb and continent enough to hide the slain.” Was it necessary for David Cameron to fight over his little patch, in the form of Mr Juncker? [Snip] A Ruritanian grand duchy and a charming relic of the Holy Roman Empire, Luxembourg has done well to retain its independence in such a conflict-strewn region. Its principal industries are tourism and tax avoidance, and it is not a nursery of statesmen. In recent years, Gibraltar has produced more politicians who would be plausible members of a British Cabinet. In the early Eighties,

Paintings depicting the moment Charles Saatchi apparently throttled his former wife Nigella Lawson have emerged for sale, on his own art website. The couple divorced last year after Saatchi was seen with his hand around his wife’s neck as they sat outside Scott’s restaurant in Mayfair. [Snip] Pete Jones, 52, has listed ‘Last Course’ on the site – a picture of Miss Lawson with hands on her throat painted on a bread board - for £17,600. Another picture, painted by Jane Kelly and called Art Collector Throttling a Cook has a price tag of £1,170. Darren Udaiyan, 41, produced a Van Gogh style painting of the incident, which he uploaded to the site

U.S. Speaker of the House John Boehner was in Moncks Corner earlier this month, according to a story posted Wednesday on The Berkeley Independent´s website. Abbie Brown of Brown´s BBQ got a phone call after the lunch rush on June 6 asking if someone special could come in for lunch. Boehner and his entourage of Capitol Police agents came in, and were later joined by former congressman Henry Brown, according to the story. Boehner had been in town to play golf earlier that day with the former congressman, the story said.

The game is up. No one will now believe that the United Kingdom can deliver a substantively different deal in Europe. The FCO´s ploy of doing a Harold Wilson--that is, making some piffling changes and presenting them as a significant new deal--has been discredited almost before it began. If David Cameron couldn´t prevent the appointment of Jean-Claude Juncker as President of the European Commission, no one will believe that he can deliver a more flexible EU, with more freedom of action for its member nations. I suspect this is one of those situations where normal people get the point more

It was retired Army Major Del Henty who first raised the alarm. Spotting the convoy of caravans making its way through the West Sussex village of Findon towards its picturesque village green at around 2.45pm on Tuesday he knew trouble was brewing. The convoy turned out to be a group of travellers intent on pitching their caravans on Nepcote Green--where for 300 years a traditional sheep fair has been held each summer--for what could have turned out to be weeks, if not months. [Snip] Last year a larger group of travellers moved onto the green and caused what local residents and councillors

Britain has moved a step closer to leaving the European Union after David Cameron declared “war” on Brussels over the nomination of Jean-Claude Juncker. [Snip] The result emboldened Eurosceptic MPs and Ukip supporters who want to leave the EU. However, Mr Cameron said he would wage a “long, tough fight” to reform Brussels before campaigning for Britain to remain in the EU in an in-out referendum he has promised to hold in 2017. The Prime Minister said the decision to nominate Mr Juncker, an arch-federalist facing questions about his drinking habits, represented “a sad day for the EU”.

Facebook’s News Feed—the main list of status updates, messages, and photos you see when you open Facebook on your computer or phone—is not a perfect mirror of the world. But few users expect that Facebook would change their News Feed in order to manipulate their emotional state. We now know that’s exactly what happened two years ago. For one week in January 2012, data scientists skewed what almost 700,000 Facebook users saw when they logged into its service. Some people were shown content with a preponderance of happy and positive words; some were shown content analyzed as sadder than average.

Edward Klein’s book about the animosity between the Clintons and Obamas, “Blood Feud” (Regnery Publishing), rocketed up the best-seller charts since it was featured in The Post last Sunday. Here, in another exclusive excerpt, Klein ­describes how Bill’s health is a preoccupation of the Clintons. A pair of black, armor-plated SUVs swung into a suburban cul-de-sac and crunched to a stop in the driveway of the Clintons’ home in Chappaqua, New York. A wall of burly Secret Service agents jumped out and surrounded the man who emerged from the lead vehicle. It was mid-summer 2013, and Bill Clinton looked shrunken and weary.

President Obama will ask Congress to provide more than $2 billion in new funds to control the surge of illegal Central American migrants at the South Texas border, and to grant broader powers for immigration officials to speed deportations of children caught crossing without their parents, White House officials said on Saturday. Mr. Obama will send a letter on Monday to alert Congress that he will seek an emergency appropriation for rapidly expanding border enforcement actions and humanitarian assistance programs to cope with the influx, which includes record numbers of unaccompanied minors and adults bringing children.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) vowed to crush the Tea Party, and with help from Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) in Kentucky, he did, and nationally, he will. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has sent the Tea Party to the back benches, and after the recent defeat of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), is his successor any different than him? No. Did anything change? No. The Tea Party is not being done in by Democrats; it is being done in by the party of big business, crony capitalism, big money from insider Wall Street and big banks, the Chamber of Commerce and the corporate lobbying wing of the Tea Party's real nemesis:

The Keystone Pipeline project was expected to create tens of thousands of high paying jobs in the oil industry. The project itself would create 20,000 construction jobs. And the pipeline would bring oil from Canada and North Dakota to refineries in the United States. The proposed project would have extended from Alberta, Canada to Illinois, transporting approximately 400,000 barrels of crude oil per day. Estimated cost is $1.7 billion. But Obama rejected the plan in 2011 and 2014. Democrats are beholden to the radical green movement – the poor and middle class be damned. Now this… Canada pulled the plug on Keystone and will

A black man in New Jersey has filed a lawsuit against his former employer, Benjamin Moore Paints, which he says named one of its paint colors after him and then fired him when he complained. Clinton Tucker, who managed online sales for Benjamin Moore, which is owned by the conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway, said that he was bothered by the names of several of the company’s paint colors, “Clinton Brown,” “Tucker Chocolate,” and “Confederate Red.” “Being a black man named Clinton Tucker, the plaintiff found this to be extremely racially offensive,” reads the complaint, filed in Essex County Court.

I watched The Five discuss the preview of Megyn Kelly’s upcoming Bill Ayers interview. Bob Beckel is still claiming that Obama didn’t know Ayers – “met him once” – and the other four supposedly conservative journalists had nothing to contradict him with! Every reader of AT knows that Ayers and Obama worked together - that Ayers hired Obama for the biggest job of his life before becoming President – handing out $100 million dollars of the Annenberg Challenge grants to radical causes, instead of using it to help Chicago’s schoolchildren. ere is a preview of the interview from Fox: Stanley Kurtz at the Wall St. Journal:

As thousands of disease-riddled criminals storm across our borders, is it really time to mince words? President Obama appears to have an Agenda for America that stinks worse than a Border Patrol bus depot crammed with urine-drenched illegals. Is the man trying to protect and defend us, or does he want us to kick the bucket, run down the curtain, and join the choir invisible? On January 29, 2014, the Department of Homeland Security advertised for a vendor to escort 65,000 “unaccompanied alien children,” indicating that they not only knew the alien invasion was coming, they planned it.

I am rapidly coming to the preliminary conclusion that Elizabeth Warren will be the Democrats’ 2016 standard bearer. Hillary Clinton is just too unlikable (remember that Barack Obama called her “likable enough” in one of the most memorable back handed compliments of recent political memory), and too transparently greedy, self-serving, and out of touch. Not to mention the appalling foreign affairs crises the United States faces in the wake of her term as Secretary of State. Her brand is tarnished.

Say this for President Obama: He’s got an uncanny ability to block out distractions and keep his eye on the ball. Facing a horrific expansion of terrorism in the Mideast, a meltdown of public support at home and major rebukes by the Supreme Court, the president remains fixated on No. 1. “I’m finding lately I just want to say what’s on my mind,” he told a Minneapolis audience Friday, and then ticked off a series of complaints about — surprise — Republicans. “They don’t do anything, except block me and call me names,” he said. “If they were more interested in growing the

And as long as they insist on doing it, I’ll keep taking actions on my own – like the actions I’ve taken already to attract new jobs, lift workers’ wages, and help students pay off their loans,” Obama said. “I’ll do my job, and if it makes Republicans in Congress mad that I’m trying to help

President Obama´s closest advisor, Valerie Jarrett says there´s no way, no how Michelle Obama runs for political office. But will Jarrett? The aide is leaving that possibility open. "I want to talk to you about the future," said the NBC reporter interviewing Jarrett. "Is Michelle Obama going to run for office?" "No," Jarrett said resolutely. "You said that very definitively," the reporter countered. "Well, I´m absolutely, 100 percent positive that that will never happen," Jarrett proclaimed. The reporter prodded, "How about Valerie Jarrett? Will you ever run for office?" "Unlikely," Obama´s adviser said, leaving the door slightly open. "But maybe?"
