Marine Le Pen Stripped Of EU Parliament Immunity For Tweeting Pictures Of Islamic State Violence

“In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” – George Orwell

Having recently joined her conservative opponent  Francois Fillon in facing the French legal system over possible embezzlement charges of her own, (her chief of staff and bodyguard were detained by police last week), the push to isolate and crack down on the anti-establishment presidential candidate moved to the European Parliament where EU lawmakers lifted Le Pen’s EU parliamentary immunity on Thursday for tweeting pictures of Islamic State violence.

The direction in which the persecution of Le Pen has moved, after she simply refused to answer police questions suggests the police had no evidence on which to build a case. Now, in a move that stinks of a left wing stitch up (lies, smears and dirty tricks are typical leftist tactics of course, taken straight from the Frankfurt School handbook on tactics for destabilising society ) the thrust of the campaign has shifted to alleged ‘hate crime’ and the prosecution has been passed to the EU, far more a law unto themselves, not constrained by national laws and old fashioned notions like justice, fairness and equality in the eyes of the law. EU law tends to run on the basis of some little bureaucrat saying, “If I decide its a crime them its a crime,” which is exactly how the bureaucratic dictatorships in Nazi germany and Soviet Russia used to operate.

Le Pen is under investigation in France for posting three images of Islamic State executions on Twitter in December 2015, including the beheading of American journalist James Foley. There is no question that these events happened and the atrocities were carried out by Islamic state members so Le Pen’s immunity as a Member of the European Parliament ought to shield her from prosecution. Lifting that immunity, just over a month before the first round of the French presidential election after a request from the French judiciary, and this amateurish, ham fisted attempt to derail her campaign is really as good as a confession that the ruling elites fear a Le Pen victory in the election and will resort to criminal acts to discredit her .

The vote on Thursday by a large show of hands in the plenary of the EU Parliament confirmed a preliminary decision taken on Tuesday by the legal affairs committee of the EU legislature. In the report underpinning parliament’s decision, eurosceptic 5 Star Movement lawmaker Laura Ferrara said that although the images posted by Le Pen were easily accessible on several websites, “this does not alter the fact that their violent nature is likely to undermine human dignity”.

Le Pen’s move was seen as not appropriate for a member of the European Parliament, the report said. Ferrara also said that there was no reason to think Le Pen was being persecuted judicially because “the speed at which legal proceedings have been taken against Marine Le Pen is comparable to the pace of other proceedings in matters relating to the press and other media”.

The EU parliament decision, reported by Reuters, grants the prosecutor looking into the affair power to bring Le Pen in for police questioning. It will also stoke social tensions in France with the country already on the verge of civil disorder following a wave of rioting in immigrant areas.

Hillary Clinton loses ground to Trump in key states

According to a major opinion poll commissioned and published jointly by ABC

News and The Washington Post

a substantial majority of Americans disapprove of the FBI’s (and implicitly Attorney Genera Loretta Lynch’s decision not to prosecute ‘Crooked Hillary’ over her numerous and irrefutable violations of state security protocols while Secretary of State.

As has been widely reported, Mrs Clinton’s team at the US State Department, acting on her orders, used a private, unsecured server to handle official e-mails rather than the government network. This resulted in many hackers being able to access the emails and thousands of them including hundred of documents classified top secret ending up in the hands of Wikileaks and The Kremlin.

Unsurprisingly therefore, in the first major poll following the email-gate debacle, Donald Trump has taken the lead in three key swing states and narrowed Clinton’s lead overall to just 3 points. As one analyst commented that while there is no definite link between Clinton’s falling popularity and the DoJ decision she appears to have lost ground to Trump on questions which measure moral standards and honesty.

As readers know, we are not by any stretch of the imagination fans of Hillary Clinton, but credit where it’s due; to be less trusted than Donald Trump on moral and ethical issues is a very significant achievement.

So far of course, what we must assume is the conclusion of servergate, with FBI director James Comey having virtually admitted that although Hillary Clinton is definitely guilty of far worse crimes that others, including very senior military officers have been jailed for, because it would be just too emarrassing for the USA to admit their corrrupt political system would allow a traitor to run for president, they are going to pretend the crimes never happened and thus possibly allow that traitor to become head of state in a nation which still likes to think of itself as the most powerful in the world.

Over to you Julian Assange and Vladimir Putin.

New Hampshire Primary:Sanders and Trump Victory For Vox Populi

screen-shot-2016-02-10-at-11

There was an almost audible sigh of relief from the political establishment last week when Senator Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and posh lady Hillary Clinton (D-Blomingdales) won the US Republican and Democratic Party nomination contest in Iowa. The mavericks Donald Trump (Republican sort of) and Bernie Sanders (Democrat, sort of) who had led in opinion polls were beaten (in very dubious circumstances in the case of Sanders defeat by Hillary Clinton, who won the nomination because her campaign manager won 6 precincts on a coin toss by calling, correctly, HEADS each time. What are the odds against that.)

The British media, for the main part Obama worshippers since 2007, almost collectively orgasmed: “OMG Trump lost!” one headline read while others proclaimed that Sanders (only beaten on the six tossed of a double headed coin you must remember) was finished, his campaign was over.

Today in New Hampshire where both parties have a proper ‘primary’ election as opposed to a caucus a system that apparently chooses candidates by tossing coins, drawing lots, cutting cards or maybe in extreme cases, making the candidates have a fight, it was a different. UK media coalescing around the idea that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Donald Trump have “shaken up” the Presidential race.

That would be good headline, but it is too late. Sanders and Trump and the American public shook up the Presidential race when they announced their candidacies months ago, and the public, bored with machine politics and boring banality spouting half wits like Barack Obama and sickened by the self interest of Washington politicians, as Robert Burns might have put it, ‘bought and paid for with corporate gold’*.

This morning as Sanders’ and Trumps’ supporters celebrate their victories, nobody in the political establishment or the mainstream media can understand how this has happened.

The case is no one in the establishment media could predict this departure from the script because increasingly over the past forty or maybe fifty years Washington insiders and political  journalists have lived in a bubble, isolating themselves more and more from what the ordinaty punters think.

“Surely America will come to its senses?” has been the refrain throughout the run up to this Presidential election campaign. They cannot see that American voters have come to their senses, they have rejected the politically correct consensus that has made the two parties indistinguishable, they have rejected the back room deal making and the short term self interest of machine politics. They have voted for the outsiders.

Mainstream commentators cannot fathom why the “anointed ones,” candidates Jeb Bush (son and bother of former Presidents) and Hillary Clinton (wife of a former President), aren’t being propelled to victory by their politically correct, controversy avoiding banality and cynical attempt to appeal to minorities, disregarding the inteerests of those groups whose votes they take for granted.

Today, television and print news across the USA and around the world country have been forced to wake up to the idea that the tsunami of anti-establishment feeling surging through Europe as evidence by the rise of national interest parties such as France’s Front National, UKIP in Britain, AFD in Germany and the Sweden Democrats, all opposed to mass immigration and the further transfer of national sovereignty to unelected Bureaucrats, has reached the USA. There people have seen President Obama support terorists sworn to harm US interests, show contempt for the constitution, divide the nation racially and try to surrender sovereignty to the United Nations. Here’s how the UK media see it:

The BBC leads with: “Both candidates are riding on a wave of discontent with mainstream politics”.

The Independent says: “Outsiders Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders were handsomely rewarded by the voters of New Hampshire on Tuesday night – with predictions handing them huge wins over their establishment rivals”.

The Guardian reports: “Donald Trump, once an object of mockery and scorn by many in the political establishment, has won the New Hampshire Republican primary.”

The Daily Mail notes: “About half [of Republican voters] also said they want the next U.S. president to be someone who comes from outside America’s political ‘establishment.’”

From the Telegraph: “Maverick candidates Trump and Sanders rock US political establishment”.

The Huffington Post UK states: “Both winners peddle a strong ideological message at odds with the country’s political mainstream”.

Westminster’s most establishment magazine, the Spectator said in its online edition: “Populism won tonight in New Hampshire. Rage against the elite won tonight in New Hampshire”.

But the Murdoch press wasn’t quite as conciliatory, after Mr. Trump declared war against his Fox News Channel by refusing to attend the debate in Iowa.

The Times front page proclaimed: “Donald Trump won the New Hampshire primary last night – the surest sign yet that voters are ready to put a billionaire former reality TV star with no political experience into the world’s most powerful executive position.”

Republican US Presidential Candidates And Guns

America’s favourite guns (image source)

I was somewhat surprised to see in the online version of a British national newspaper a story about which of the seventeen contenders for the Republican Party nomination to contest the 2016 Presidential election own guns.

It turns out the only one of the seventeen who does not own a gun is Jeb Bush, brother of George Dubya who was president from 2001 to 2009 and scion of the notoriously gun crazy Bush clan.

But them to state starkly that Jeb Bush does not own a gun is perhaps misleading. I have read at reliable sources that Bush J does not need to own a gun, he employs four heavily armed and highly trained ex marines to accompany him everywhere and to quote Goldfinger: “Take care of any unpleasantness.”

Obama Trumped

The fact that Donald Trump is not only running for the Republican candidacy, but at the moment is ahead in opinion polls is causing almost as much consternation as Jeremy Corbyn’s almost successful bid for the Labour leadership.

Having been one of the people who warned back in 2008 that Barack Obama would be more of a neo con and warmonger than his predecessor Bush (I have the ability to dig deeper into the dark recesses of the internet than most and so learned that Obama’s main financial backer as the wannabes jostled for a place in the starting line up, was a neo – fascist hedge fund boss whose name I am not going to mention because it’s tiresome having to fend off cyber attacks, it was inevitable Obama would turn out to be a corporate rent boy.

Donald Trump is a twat I’m sure, some with long memories might recall me slagging him off comprehensively when he was trying to bribe the Scottish Nazi Party to override local objections and fast track approval for a golf resort he planned to build in Scotland.

Having said that, the guy is great comedy value, comb over and all. Take his piss taking campaign logo for example:

Why The Developed World Is Rejecting Traditional Politics

Firstly it’s great to see the Kippers support has held up in the weeks since the General Election. The first opinion poll published (YouGov – Sun) shows that while Labour and the Liberal Democras have fallen back slightly, the Conservatives have gained and UKIP are on 13%, the same as they polled in the election.

At thins stage, five years from the next election and probably two years away from the EU in – out referendum this means nothing, but at least it will piss off those antidemocratic, anti-free speech, pro – authoritarianism lefties who predicted UKIP support would evaporate.

And news coming in from abroad suggests the opposition to golobalism, comllectivism and post – racial multiculturalism (to borrow a phrase from Labour’s spin and misinformation department) has the politically correct, Frankfurt school consensus on the backfoot elsewhere.

Le Pen tops polls asFrench Unemployment Surges To New Record High.

Is it any wonder Marin Le Pen’s Front National Party is a) leading in the polls, and b) pushing for an EU in/out referendum? Whatever it is that France (and/or Europe) is doing, is not working. Despite all the promises, French unemployment has risen practically non-stop for 4 years and just hit a new all-time record.

Police Investigate South Thanet Constituency Election.

Guido Fawkes put up a bizarre post yesterday afternoon which due to more pressing matters I did not follow up right away.

Now I know the lefties will start screeching ‘conspiracy theory’ but we should be aware the police have confirm.ed this story has substance.

Kent Police have launched an investigation into alleged electoral fraud in South Thanet

Updates from Kent police say they have found no evidence ‘so far’ of malpractice but enquiries are ongoing. The police also confirmed that the complaint which launched the investigation was not made by UKIP.

It is thought the complaint arises from questions about why the South Thanet count was six hours late in beginning, a delay some sources speculate was due to several ballot boxes going missing en route to the count.

The story was given a comic elementby the gurning, idiotic posh boy Alistair (Al) Murray, whose protrayal of a working class pub landlord is surely the greatest insult to the English working class ever, and who had opposed UKIPs Nigel Farage, trying to claim that UKIP had attempted to rig the election themselves.
