The elusive President Pimpernel

AWOL Obama vanishes again: Three hours after another American is brutally beheaded, president is whisked away from the White House – without finding time to say a single word about it! Barack Obama left for a three-day European swing Tuesday afternoon without saying a single word in response to a terrorist video showing the beheading of Steven Sotloff, the second American journalist to die that way on camera. The president’s departure came amid equally deafening swirls of helicopter rotors and tough questions about whether and when the U.S. will strike back in a meaningful and public way against ISIS, the self-proclaimed Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham.1409695256479_wps_1_WASHINGTON_DC_SEPTEMBER_0* President walks to Marine One past journalists while ignoring their shouted questions:

News of Sotloff’s execution broke online at 1:05 p.m., shortly after White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest began his daily briefing with reporters; he said four minutes later that he hadn’t heard the news. By 3:40, Obama was lifting off from the South Lawn of the White House on his way to a waiting Air Force One, which was ‘wheels up’ by 4:00. Just two weeks ago, the president was widely criticized for being pictured fist-bumping on the golf course minutes after solemnly addressing the nation about an ISIS video showing photojournalist James Foley’s death.1409697520891_wps_9_President_Barack_Obama_boGoodbye: Obama jumped aboard Marine One shortly before 3:40 p.m., en route to Air force One at Andrews Air Force base.

A Question Answered…

Question: How can you down-size from a six bedroom (two storey) property, into a three bedroomed (single storey) cottage, and still take every thing, and then expect it to all fit? Answer: The cottage is a ‘Tardis’ type home that once belonged to a Time Lord Dr. Who?3 After much head scratching, every single box and its content eventually found a place. Which has left me exhausted and confused as to how I was roped into the evolution in the first place. Long term ‘oppos’ & friendship, as well as a call for assistance; thats how…  Yours Aye.

KEEP CALM AND DRINK TEA

imagesDrinking tea ‘cuts risk of dying early by a quarter': Antioxidant ingredients in the drink are good for the heart.
* A study shows that drinking tea reduces the risk of dying from causes unrelated to the heart by a quarter. 
* The benefits of tea are largely due to the antioxidant ingredients
* The study involved 131,401 people aged 18 to 95. 
* Experts also say it is better for you than coffee and tea drinkers are more physically active.yorkshire_gold_teaTea really is the best drink of the day – it can cut your risk of dying prematurely, say researchers. A study shows that drinking tea reduces the risk of dying from causes unrelated to the heart by a quarter compared with those who don’t drink tea. Experts say it is better for you than coffee, although habitual coffee drinkers tend to be more unhealthy and smokers.  The benefits of tea are largely due to the flavonoid content, antioxidant ingredients that are thought to be good for the heart. Study leader Professor Nicolas Danchin said previous research showed ‘divergent’ effects of tea and coffee on heart health. He added, however: ‘If you have to choose between tea or coffee it’s probably better to drink tea.’ Study shows that drinking tea reduces the risk of dying from causes unrelated to the heart by a quarter…

By my reckoning, which is judged on the amount of tea I quaff; I should live for another 100 years? Dear Gawd – the shear thought fills me with dread, perhaps I should switch to coffee…   Yours Aye.

Rats with a one way ticket

Police plan mass raids on sex gangs: ‘Day of reckoning’ for hundreds of child abusers… with 180 mainly Asian men targeted in Manchester alone.1409439184179_wps_5_BEST_QUALITY_AVAILABLE_UnIn 2012 these eight men were found guilty of a range of charges including child rape in Rochdale, which alerted police and authorities to the size of the problem.

Police forces across Britain are poised to arrest hundreds of suspected child abusers as part of a massive crackdown on the grooming of vulnerable young girls. ‘Wave after wave’ of arrests will be made between now until Christmas in response to the ‘epidemic’ of child sexual exploitation that has haunted the nation for two decades.

Police are confident that the raids will lead to scores of court cases across the country, with suspects facing charges of child abduction, rape, multiple rape and sexual assault. In Greater Manchester alone, more than 180 suspects are set to be rounded up in an operation described by sources as a ‘day of reckoning’ for men who have tormented girls as young as ten. Raids are also scheduled to take place in the south of England within the next few weeks, with many others set to follow before the end of the year. Day of reckoning’ for hundreds of child abusers… with 180 mainly Asian men targeted in Manchester alone.

I hope the ‘Authorities’ have strong rat-traps in place at every border exit, because there will be an awful lot of Muslim men with one way tickets heading to Pakistan. Those found guilty should be flogged mercilessly – as a starter! Barstewards…      Yours Aye.

George Galloway walks into a fist

Respect MP George Galloway hit repeatedly around head by attacker who ‘called him Hitler’ as firebrand politician posed for pictures on street in Notting Hill, London.article-2738230-20E9569D00000578-935_308x433

Outspoken MP George Galloway has left hospital with severe bruising after he was punched repeatedly in the face and body as he was called ‘Hitler’ in a west London street attack, says spokesman. The ‘Respect Party’ MP for Bradford West was posing for pictures in Notting Hill when he was ‘leapt on’ and assaulted last night – by a man yelling comments about the Holocaust.

Galloway has been receiving death threats and hate mail after calling for Bradford to be ‘declared an Israel-free zone’ three weeks ago, according to his spokesman. MP George Galloway hit repeatedly around the head and body by attacker in London

When this was first reported, it was stated that he suffered a broken jaw, which would have required a an iron girder from the Sheffield steel rolling mills to wire it shut; unfortunately it appears not to be the case. Sadly Galloway loves to ‘bump his gums’ spouting forth bile and hatred, such an attack will prove to be counter productive in the long run. Champagne socialist Galloway is best dealt with by being starved of publicity, it is hoped that one day soon that nature will starve him of oxygen…      Yours Aye.

More armed police to patrol the UK’s streets as threat level is raised to its highest for years, and Prime Minister warns that we are in the fanatics’ sights

The Prime Minister’s remarks came after the official threat level was raised from substantial to severe – the second highest – amid growing fears over extremists returning from Iraq and Syria. Mr Cameron (pictured inset speaking in Downing Street today) said ISIS now posed a ‘greater and deeper threat to our security than we have known before’. The PM said terrorism was ‘the most important issue facing this country today’.

He also announced that new laws will be passed to make it easier to remove extremists’ passports if there are concerns they will travel to the Middle East to join ISIS. The Prime Minister’s remarks came after the Home Secretary Theresa May stressed that there is no information to suggest an attack is imminent, but warned: ‘We face a real and serious threat in the UK from international terrorism.’ More armed police to patrol streets as threat level is raised to its highest for years and Prime Minister warns that we are in the fanatics’ sights

ISIS in Mexico? Feds DENY watchdog group’s claim that the terror group is operating in Juarez and plans ‘imminent’ car-bomb attacks on US targets

Judicial Watch’s US government sources say the terror group is a stone’s throw away from El Paso, Texas as the White House dither’s on anti-ISIS strategy. Feds DENY watchdog group’s claim that the terror group is operating in Juarez and plans ‘imminent’ car-bomb attacks on US targets

The threat has been with us on both sides of the pond for years, all the while each government has fallen asleep on the job – bored to tears trying to defend the un-defendable in Afghanistan. Meanwhile, I have finished the maze of traps and fire trenches around my humble abode. I have also duct taped a commando dagger to Nipper’s head, and half-starved him so he is ready to take on the first black clad extremist who dares to enter my perimeter. May their God have plenty of vestal virgins on stand-by…      Yours Aye.

A traitorous barsteward…

article-2737905-20E6FC3D00000578-61_306x423US Navy Warrant officer who spied for Soviet Union with his son and brother in ‘most devastating leak in US military history’ dies in prison. A former American sailor convicted during the Cold War of leading a family spy ring for the Soviet Union has died in a prison hospital in North Carolina. ‘Retired’ Navy Warrant Officer John A. Walker Jr. died Thursday at the Federal Medical Center in Butner, Federal Bureau of Prisons spokesman Chris Burke said. The cause of death was not immediately released. He was 77.

Walker was sentenced to life in prison after pleading guilty in 1985 to passing secrets to the Soviets while he was a shipboard communications officer.The security breach was then considered among the largest and most devastating leaks of military secrets in the nation’s history.article-2737942-20E7364200000578-111_306x423 

A cryptologist, Walker used his high-level security clearance to provide Navy codes, ship locations, and other sensitive data in exchange for cash. After his 1976 retirement, Walker recruited his son, his brother and a friend to keep providing the Soviets fresh information. All were convicted. Walker’s spying career began in 1967, when he was based at the massive U.S. Naval Station in Norfolk, Virginia.

Walker went to the Soviet Embassy in Washington and volunteered to hand over secret coded material on a regular basis, according to court documents.

The death penalty would have saved the tax payer an awful lot of money; there will be no tears shed over this side of the pond at this traitors demise…        Yours Aye.

United Kingdom of Great Britain

I’m in a no-nonsense mood today – the sort of mood that oozes ‘step aside’ or go down.          Hence the following muse placed before you…1731747750My first and final post on Scotland voting for Independence without politics involved, and none of the why’s, and where for’s, over the ‘for and against’ choice. However, I will state this; I want to see Scotland vote no, and stay and play her part within the United Kingdom of Great Britain. There is talk that If Scotland votes for independence the blue Cross of St Andrew will be removed from the Union Flag. Scotland’s one and only national flag will obviously then become the Saltire of which they will fly with pride.

flagsShould Scotland leave I would urge those faceless civil servants idling – sat on their fat arses somewhere in the depths of Whitehall to retain the blue cross within the Union Flag as it also represents the dark blue waters that surrounds the shoreline of our sceptred Isle. I have sworn allegiance to it, and bled for it, and lost countless friends who made the ultimate sacrifice on its behalf, several of whom were wrapped and buried within its fabric. 

This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle,
This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
This other Eden, demi-paradise,
This fortress built by Nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in the silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall
Or as a moat defensive to a house,
Against the envy of less happier lands,–
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.     

As scribed by William Shakespeare: 1597.      Yours Aye.
