Semper Fidelis – Rest Easy…

Four Marines killed and one critical after 24-year-old Muslim gunman opened fire with ‘high-powered rifle’ on two Tennessee military centers.article-3164129-2A980CB600000578-640_964x406

Four Marines were killed this morning, when a heavily-armed gunman opened fire on two military centers in Chattanooga, Tennessee in what is being described as an ‘act of domestic terrorism’.  Officials have not yet officially named the now-deceased shooter, but law enforcement sources identified the suspect to CBS as 24-year-old naturalized U.S. citizen Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, originally from Kuwait. 

This cowardly attack has truly sickened me. My heart goes out to the families and loved ones of the Marines. The time has come to remove the velvet glove from the iron fist!   Yours_Aye.

Courage? Cry me a bloody river!

Kate_NesbittGawd give me strength!!! This could only happen in the air-head bubble of celebrity ga-ga world… Back in the real world away from the nonsensical trashy glitz and make-believe of Hollywood – we have true courage by the bucket load.

One tale of courage and derring do that sticks in my mind is that of  Medical Assistant Able Seaman Class 1, Kate Nesbitt. Military Cross. A 21-year-old, five foot tall sailor, with a heart of oak…Whose Citation reads “Under fire and under pressure her commitment and courage were inspirational and made the difference between life and death. She performed in the highest traditions of her service.”

‘Slay the ISIS dragon in its lair’

Jewish peer funds rescue of thousands of Christians threatened by ISIS: Lord Weidenfeld, 95, says the project in Syria and Iraq is a way of repaying his ‘debt’ to British Quakers who helped him flee the Nazis021FB9AF0000044D-3163561-image-m-4_1437040776554

Lord Weidenfeld was a penniless five-year-old when British Quakers and other Christians fed and clothed him, and helped him reach the UK in 1938 – just one year before the Second World War. Following a hugely successful career in publishing, 95-year-old Lord Weidenfeld remains incredibly grateful for the risks taken by those who helped him, and has decided to plough money into a fund to rescue up to 2,000 persecuted Christians living under the rule of ISIS in the Middle East.

He criticised the West for its timid military response to the rise of ISIS, however, saying: ‘I am appalled by the lack of action… The lack of desire to fight the enemy, to slay the dragon in his lair.

As part of his plan to ‘repay’ his debts to Christians, Lord Weidenfeld launched the Weidenfeld Safe Havens Fund – a project which last week paid for 150 Syrian Christians to be flown to Poland.Girls-from-the-Yaz_3367458b

We are fortunate that there are many individuals, and organisations who act in such the same way as Lord Weidenfeld. In addition to clandestine groups currently active in smuggling out those who would other wise be crucified for their beliefs.  All is not lost when decent people stand up for what is right!   Yours_Aye.

iScammers – Barstewards…

article-3162260-2A8F43B600000578-856_308x542The iScam: Con artists freeze iPad and iPhone users’ internet browsers and demand £50 to fix it… but there’s a 15-second DIY remedy.

Apple users are under threat from an iPhone scam that sees them urged to call a number and pay up to £50 for a fix – or all their details will be stolen, it can be revealed. The issue – which appears to have started in the US at least nine months ago but has since spread to Britain – sees a ‘crash report’ message pop up while users are on the Safari internet app. The message appearing on the screen says: ‘Warning iOS Crash Report – Due to a third-party application in your phone, iOS crashed. Contact support for an immediate fix.’

Users are then told to call one of a list of numbers – ‘1-800-480-4170’ in the US or ‘0800 279 6211’ or ‘0800 652 4895’ in the UK – and someone will then ask for their credit card details to make a payment to solve the issue. The person answering the phone says a third-party has been removing all their details from their handset – and this can only be stopped by paying up to £30 ($47) in Britain, or $80 (£51) in the US.

HOW TO BEAT THE iSCAMMERS
If your Apple device is frozen by this warning message, take these steps:
* Press the Home button to exit Safari
* In Settings, enter Airplane Mode
* In Settings, look for Safari settings, and clear your internet browsing history and cookies. Reopen Safari and the pop-up warning should have gone – If it has, take your device out of Airplane Mode.

If this post helps but one poor soul, it was worth the effort.    Yours_Aye.

The MAD world of IRAN

Senior Iranian cleric ‘Seyyed Abolhassan Mahdavi’ warns ‘women will suffer from illnesses of the intestines and stomach if they don’t cover themselves from head to toe.’2A86777E00000578-0-Warning_Seyyed_Abolhassan_Mahdavi_has_warned_women_they_risk_bec-m-9_1436887959245

Mahdavi, who is a member of a body which appoints the country’s supreme leader, ranted: “Doctors believe that frenzied emotions that enter the soul bring physical illnesses to people. ‘Mal-veiling brings such frenzied emotions into the souls of people.”

MAD-Magazine“According to doctors, illnesses in the intestines and stomach begin as a result of such frenzied emotions and spread to other organs of the body. ‘Therefore if people care about their physical health, they should wear the most appropriate dress which is the black chador.” 

Mahdavi is just one of several clowns who forms a committee to debate and appoint Iran’s supreme leader? It’s a MAD world especially when there are  fools posing as leaders within the Western world who believe in them.    Yours_Aye

IRAN given a licence to kill!

2A85C6E000000578-3160393-image-a-7_1436877913519‘Iran have been given a licence to kill’: Netanyahu blasts ‘historic mistake’ of agreeing Tehran nuclear deal as Israeli ministers condemn the ‘surrender by the West to the axis of evil.’ Israel launched a blistering attack on Western powers for agreeing a controversial atomic deal with Iran, warning that it gave Tehran ‘a sure path to nuclear weapons’.netanyahu-fists

 
Under the accord, sanctions imposed by the United States, European Union and United Nations will be lifted in return for Iran agreeing long-term curbs on a nuclear programme that the West has suspected was aimed at creating an atomic bomb. The European Union called it a ‘sign of hope for the entire world’, while President Barack Obama insisted the deal meant ‘every pathway to a nuclear weapon is cut off’

But this was angrily rejected by Israel, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu branding the deal ‘a bad mistake of historic proportions’. He said: ‘Iran will get a jackpot, a cash bonanza of hundreds of billions of dollars, which will enable it to continue to pursue its aggression and terror in the region and in the world. ‘Iran is going to receive a sure path to nuclear weapons.’ Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely called the deal ‘a historic surrender by the West to the axis of evil headed by Iran.’ She said that Israel would ‘act with all means to try and stop the agreement being ratified’, a clear threat to try to use its influence to block it in the Republican-controlled U.S. Congress.

So the incumbent buffoons of the White House, the corrupt fraudulent socialist European Union, and the inept bureaucratic United Nations, are all happy with their negotiated deal: “That can be trusted.” I have more faith in the predictions of the BBC’s on-call weather team – who fail daily! Thank Gawd for Israel, and her true allies… Yours_Aye.

Cecil Rhodes – An Englishman

A small group of Oxford Students Want Cecil Rhodes ‘Racist’ Statue Removed. A group of students at Oxford University has called for a statue to be taken down because it is claimed to symbolise racism and colonialism.cegrab-20150712-071615-530-1-762x428

The statue of Cecil Rhodes – dubbed by some the founding father of Apartheid – is more than 100 years old and sits in a Grade II listed building at Oriel College. The group wants the university to follow the example of the University of Cape Town which pulled down its statue of the white supremacist in April. Annie Teriba is a member of Oxford University’s Rhodes Must Fall movement. The second year history and politics student told Sky News the statue represents institutional racism.

“It’s a reminder, more than being a statue, that when this university was built it wasn’t built with us in mind it was built off the back of exploiting labour and the colonial project and it’s something that still gets celebrated in the form of a statue. That’s something that students of colour really take seriously. “There’s a violence to having to walk past the statue every day on the way to your lectures, there’s a violence to having to sit with paintings of former slave holders whilst writing your exams – that’s really problematic.” A group of students at Oxford University has called for a statue to be taken down because it is claimed to symbolise racism and colonialism.

220px-Cecil_Rhodes_wwCecil Rhodes estate currently endows one of the world’s most prestigious awards, ‘the Rhodes Scholarship.’ The postgraduate award brings students – which have included former US president Bill Clinton – from around the world to study at Oxford University – free of charge, which includes accommodation.

Historian Richard A. McFarlane has called Rhodes “as integral a participant in southern African and British imperial history as George Washington or Abraham Lincoln are in their respective eras in United States history.

The vast majority of our heritage buildings throughout the United Kingdom of Great Britain were built on the spoils of colonialism and slavery, as such its interwoven into the rich tapestry of our history. If foreign students object to such ‘colonialism’ then I urge them to pack up their troubles, and depart theses shores to return from whence ye came – pronto. Bah!  Yours_Aye!

A Gentleman’s Club for men – only.

‘There are three intolerable things in life,” Orson Welles once decreed, “cold coffee, lukewarm champagne, and over excited women.” 

For almost two centuries, the Garrick has spared its 1300 members this triad of unpleasantness and on Monday the club voted to safe-guard the famously exclusive club’s 184-year rule against female membership.

Rick Perry broadsides The Donald

True or False? Is Donald Trump shooting from the lip… As is his wont, he often speaks out before engaging his brain, which is something he is often ridiculed over on this side of the pond.

Battle of Britain -75th Anniversary

The Battle of Britain: July 10, 1940 – October 31, 1940 “Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.” PM Winston ChurchillBattle of Britain

The average age of an RAF pilot in 1940 was about 20 years. Some were as young as 18 and there were others over 30. battle_of_britain_propaganda_poster_midIn those days, with the ‘age of majority’ set at 21, many of the RAF’s Battle of Britain pilots were not old enough to vote – but not too young to lay down their lives in the face of a life and death struggle to save Britain from coming under the tyranny of the Nazis. Battle of Britain – Roll of Honour

For those with an interest in facts and figures the Battle of Britain Historical Society provides it all.  A hearty B.Z. to the Brylcreem boys who bloodied the Luftwaffe’s nose ‘good n proper’. Your sacrifice will never be forgotten.     Yours Aye.

Obama’s brass neck…

White House escalates warnings about geopolitical and financial dangers of letting Greece go as future of ‘riots and chaos’ face Athens. Europeans ‘told’ to bring Greece back from the brink and avoid descent into ‘uncontrolled’ Grexit.obama_3369296d

Two of the most vocal countries supporting Greece, are socialist France and the newly appointed socialist coalition government of Austria. They insist that more money must be lent to the Greeks, and that all of their outstanding debt should have interest payments slashed, or written off. Socialism is a strange concept, especially when those practicing it run out of other people’s money. Now we have the White House socialist Clown in Chief piping up… Wind your brass neck in Barry!

The socialist European Union death star will implode and disintegrate ‘when’ (not if) Greece departs its poisoned grasp. The Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras knows this, he also knows it will be less painful to switch back to the ‘₯ Drachma’ than accept more  €uro loans – along with further crippling interest, that will also bring additional austerity measures. Better to hurt for several months, than several years, and a weak ₯ guarantees a boom in tourism, as well as a boost to its property market; each will last well over twenty years…r-VADER-EU-large570

PM Tsipras is also an astute man, he knows Obama does not wish to see Putin’s Navy gain a Mediterranean sea port. He also knows that when the EU implode’s it will bring about the end of Obama’s ‘dream’ of a Trans Pacific trade Partnership. So will Obama ‘discreetly’ ship funds over to Germany to pass onto Greece, will the EU allow such a transfer (its rules state quite clearly – NO!) But the EU makes its own rules up as it goes along, which further weakens its fractured hull. 

PM Tsipras gained power through Putin’s funding, his own political ideologies fits in with Putin’s own. Putin’s smoke grey faced money men have held recent meetings with Tsipras in Russia and Greece. Putin has also promised modern military hardware, as well as discounted oil to Tsipras – for favours returned. Fact: Putin and his political machine will be around far longer than Obama, which is why Tsipras met with Putin the day before meeting with Obama immediately after he [Tsipras] was elected to office!

Nigel Farage is one of countless millions around the UK & Europe who can read the writing on the EU wall. Once again he tells it as it is… Huzzah!   Yours_Aye.

Bob Quick, a former Scotland Yard Assistant Commissioner, said it could be safer to help British extremists leave the country and ban them from returning by withdrawing their passports. The government should consider chartering flights to Syria for UK fanatics who want to join ISIS, a former counter-terrorism police chief has suggested.

Bob Quick never appeared to be the sharpest tool in the box when he served; but I do agree with his pointed thought… Lets start the ball rolling tomorrow morning – all those in favour raise your right hand.    Yours_Aye.
