The Guardian And Irish Republicanism

It had to happen . A Guardian article that tells the truth .

It has become customary amongst those who share my religio-political beliefs to laugh at this other manifestation of pure evil in Irish Republicanism (obscene and pointless violence being the other).

It's time we realised that that isn't good enough and that we should try to help our brothers and sisters in Christ to throw off the chains and banish these twin evils for good .

Our rejection of them fosters more of this depravity .

Children Are The Enemy

Well , at least the Eco-Loonies of Al-JaBeeba don't hide their hatred of humanity .

'Twas the Night Before Christmas -- 2009

From The American Spectator

'Twas the night before Christmas and at the White House;
Our Commander was sleeping, and so was his spouse.
They'd gone to bed early to ward off the blues;
In hopes that the new year would bring them good news.

Progressives were snuggled, asleep safe and warm;
While dreaming of government health care reform.
But I in my doldrums, and sleepless with fears;
Had just nodded off with a couple of beers.

When out of my TV there came such a clatter;
I put down my brewski to check out the natter.
Away to the boob tube I flew in a flash;
To watch a discussion of ill-gotten cash.

The smoke in the backroom was blowing quite thick;
And I thought that my poor mind was playing a trick;
When what to my sleep-deprived eyes should appear
But a panel of Democrats looking severe!

With a little old leader so ready to plead;
I knew in a moment it was Harry Reid.
More rapid than eagles his supplicants came
When he wined them and dined them and called them by name:
Now Sanders, Now Landrieu, Now Ben from Nebraska;
We'll give you the bridge that we scotched in Alaska!
To the chamber to vote;
Where we plan to play ball;
It's cash today, cash today, cash for you all!

As wobblers who'll alter their views so they'll jibe,
when they meet with a party that's eager to bribe;
So on went the plan to bewitch and bewilder
By paying the requisite pieces of silver.

And then in a twinkling, I heard in my room;
A voice that would fill any patriot with gloom.
As I peered through the darkness I saw with great dread
St. Hillary appear at the foot of my bed.

She was dressed in a trench coat, the collar up high;
And she wore a mischievous gleam in her eye.
A pair of dark glasses were perched on her head;
And she grinned as she pictured the glory ahead.

Her eyes--how they sparkled! Her manner--how airy!
As she thought of the treachery cooked up for Harry.
Her droll little mouth was stretched out in a smile;
And her angelic look gave no hint of her guile.

A tiny black book she held tight in her hand;
And she grinned like a bandit while hatching her plan.
She had a bright look and her cheeks grew so rosy
As she started to write down the deals of Pelosi.

She noted with glee the attempted extortion;
The cash to vote cloture and fold on abortion.
With a wink of her eye in the midst of my dream;
I realized that she'd let me in on her scheme.

She hoped that the papers would swallow the bait;
That they'd never suspect came from mistress of State.
She merrily felt that Obama was toast;
As she faxed all the dirt to the Washington Post.

She sprang to her feet, from my room she went winging;
And my joy was so full that I felt just like singing!
And I heard her exclaim, as my eyes welled with tears,
"Happy Christmas Barack, I'll be back in three years."

'Mon Santa !

O Come All Ye Faithful !

Nothing To See Here ....

I wonder what Noraid and various Plastic Paddies throughout the English-speaking world have to say about this ?

Archbishop Cranmer preaches on the same theme here , following the news that the odious Channel 4 is to allow Adams to make a programme on Christianity and forgiveness .

Best line comes from one of those cruelly bereaved by this evil man and his euphemistic struggle

Victor Barker, whose 12-year-old son James died in the 1998 Omagh bombing, said:
'Asking Gerry Adams to speak about love and forgiveness is like asking Myra Hindley to lecture on child-minding .'

Or how about this ?

Lord Tebbit, who was himself injured and his wife permanently disabled after the 1984 IRA bombing of the Grand Hotel in Brighton, burst out laughing when he heard about Mr Adams' programme.

He said:
'I wish him well. And I hope he also comes across the doctrine of hell and the consuming of pernicious unrepentant murderers and sinners in general by the fires of hell for all eternity. What will he do after that? A programme about pigs discovering cleanliness?'

Last word goes to an anonymous poster on Cranmer's blog

The Adams Family Values.

His sexually abusing brother must be forgiven, because he isn't a priest.
His father should be forgiven because he was a 'volunteer' who did 7 years inside for trying to murder policemen. This clearly traumatised him, so it really is the fault of the Brits.
And Gerry Adams must be forgiven because although he knew about his brother's abuse for years, family loyalty is a great republican virtue.
And it's Christmas, a grand time fro the family & all. Slainte!

Progressive Tolerance (Part 14)

I believe that progressive Tolerance is the technical Marxist term for allowing no dissent but that from an approved , Leftist list .
Nothing to see here , then .

Theodore Dalrymple

It is rarely that I read anything on the internet which can be regarded as art , but this composition , in its polished brevity , comes close .

Soviet Science and Climategate

From a half-remembered Open University programme in the late 70's , I bring you this paragon of scientific impartiality and empirical thought , Trofim Denisovich Lysenko , and his eponymous pseudo-science Lysenkoism .

Anti-scientific charlatans manipulating and suppressing data and dissenting views to bolster the machinations of their political masters ?

I wonder why we haven't heard much about him recently ?

Tariq Ali says…
“Copenhagen may be the last chance to get communist ideals back onto the global stage.”

Fraser Nelson v Eco-Loonie

The scariest thing about Bob Ward , the skin-head loon ,is this piece of information in The Spectator

He is policy director at the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change at the LSE.

Scarier still is this quote from him on Wikipedia's Climategate page

"There needs to be an assurance that these email messages have not revealed inappropriate conduct in the preparation of journal articles and in dealing with requests from other researchers for access to data. This will probably require investigations both by the host institutions and by the relevant journals."

That's right , Bob , it's important not to prejudge the matter .

I especially like the line from Mr. Nelson (partially drowned out)

"That's right . I'm in the pay of the oil companies ."

Sums up the "debate" nicely .

Update !

More on the Grantham Institute for Climate Change from Rod Liddle

You will notice the institute is “for Climate Change”; ie there’s no question about the existence of climate change. It simply is.

Or , as he puts it here

If you work for, and are paid by, an institution which accepts climate change as a fact, then you will be disinclined to accept scientific evidence to the contrary. You hold climate change as an article of faith, and also a conduit for remuneration.

Word Of The Day - Thermosceptic

An excellent article from Simon Heffer in The Telegraph .

He introduces us to two new words : thermomania for the irrational climate hysteria and thermosceptic for those of us who shake our heads at the whole circus .

The latest blow to the thermomaniacs is the leak of emails from the University of East Anglia which suggest a complete unwillingness to engage with the opposite point of view. This was rather how the church used to behave before Martin Luther, and it enforced its will by torture and burnings at the stake. With those sanctions not currently available, the thermomaniacs prefer simply to pretend that the argument has only one side.

That hits the nail on the head !

Nutters, anarchists, anti-capitalists, fanatics, absolutists: why are these people taken seriously? Three cheers for the Australians, who this week have started to rise up against this indoctrination and lunacy. Three cheers for David Davis and the Tories who think like him, who are at last telling Dave that this particular bit of grandstanding and bunny-hugging has the potential to cause the most extreme economic and political damage. At last, there is recognition not just that there are two sides to every story, but that when politicians conspire to limit argument, it is always an attack on the public interest

We can only hope that we have the beginnings of a resurgence of true conservatism in the English-speaking world .

Climategate's Danger To Science And Rational Thought

Daniel Henninger in the Wall Street Journal .

His thesis seems to be that the conduct of the UEA Gaia-worshipers has turned science on its head , subverted rational thought and turned science into another mere political faction .

As a graduate in the related spheres of Classics and History , I have seen how the leftist intellectual establishment has marginalised and destroyed the opportunity to spread Classical learning and , at the same time , infiltrated and corrupted Historical research and thought .

It would be only logical for the Marxists to move onto other areas of thought with their vile corruption .
