Time for America to prove its enemies wrong

It has long been popular amongst left wing commentators and intellectuals both in Europe within the liberal rim of America, to view the average (white) American, that is to say those living in the bible belt or wider, “fly over” states as being dumb. The liberal media encourages us to laugh like drains at film of Americans questioned randomly in the street, who are unable to identify the location of Iraq, Afghanistan, or even Australia on the map, or who have no idea what country they celebrate becoming independent from on the 4th of July.

The alleged stupidity, racism and general lack of liberal values lurking at America's red heart simultaneously provides the opinion forming Left with both an unending source of hilarity and an army of stereotypes upon which to hang their ideological agendas.

In Europe, we have long become accustomed to watching documentaries filmed in places like Kentucky or Texas, where the locals, who speak in that slow drawl which the media long ago educated us to associate with ignorance and bigotry, have their comments and responses to questions edited and distorted, so that the politically correct interviewer, nodding conspiratorially at the camera, can expose them as ill educated, xenophobic, or, if the narrative requires it, as irredeemably hateful.

The American accent, together with the white South African accent, the German accent and to a lesser extent the Australian are the only accents we remain permitted to mock, and only the American, German and Afrikaner may now (together with upper class English) be reviled.

This, of course, only applies to white people who speak with American, South African or German accents. Colour, plays a huge role in how we have been conditioned to view an accent. For instance, the Southern Belle accent, hailing from places such as Georgia, Alabama and the Carolinas when spoken by a white woman evokes in out Pavlovian minds the frivolous arrogance of privilege, inbred racism, and of course stupidity. Yet, let that same musical voice come from the lips of a black woman and we hear poetry and the deep dignified echoes of a noble soul, perfected so successfully by Maya Angelou, and aspired to somewhat less successfully by Chicago born UK resident Bonnie Greer.

Of course it is a conditioned view, an attitude created by a thousand bad movies and though the constant propaganda pumped into our lives through the Stasi approved thought control device in the corner of most living rooms.

How could a country of stupid people become the richest, the most powerful and most successful nation in the world. Asia and Africa are larger in terms of land mass and population, Africa has more in terms of natural resources and, beneath the Sahara its land is no less fertile, yet for all the millennia of world history Europe alone rivals what America achieved in just four centuries (slightly more than two as an independent nation).

America's enemies point to its military power as the cause of America's greatness, but which came first, and was it military might which invented the aeroplane, the steamboat, the microprocessor, the pacemaker, air conditioning(1), a cure for polio, and put the first man on the moon?. It was not military might which achieved those, and so many other great advances from which we all benefit. It was the American people who achieved them together with the prosperity and comfort which they were able to extend to most of their population and who made the American dream a global aspiration by 1950.

The people who built America were not dumb, and they were not the hicks and hill billies which the obnoxious Bill Maher claims half his country men to be

However, from time to time, even the brightest of people can do some very dumb things, and in November 2008 the American people did something so dumb that it goes some considerable way towards proving true much of what their left wing critics say about them. Except that in this instance, their critics would not have considered what they did to be dumb.

In November 2008, the American people allowed a swooning media to persuade them into voting into the most powerful position on the planet a man with virtually no relevant experience, of whom they knew virtually nothing other than that he attended a fanatically racist church and had some very dubious associations. They entrusted the power to destroy the planet to a man who's career consisted of brief dalliance with the law, a period as a Chicago community organiser and an incomplete term in the US senate, where he had achieved nothing other than a reputation as the “most liberal” senator with one of the worst voting records.

Most people who voted for Barrack Obama knew absolutely nothing about him before he ran for president. The blacks voted for him because he was black, and, to some degree, so too did the whites, they voted for a black man to prove to themselves they were not racist, one of the worst sins in modern America, and because they wanted to believe a promise he never fully quantified.

It is now two year on, and it would take either a moron or a fully committed socialist not to realise what a terrible mistake they made. Not only is Obama clearly not up to the job but his every act and policy runs contrary to the best interests of the Average American and to the future of their nation.

In two day's time those same average Americans go to the polls when they have the opportunity to deliver a verdict on the current administration, and also to do something to make up for the damaging mistake they made in 2008. The polls suggest that the result may be devastating for the president and for his party.

However, nothing is certain until it is done, and there remains the possibility that the American electorate will prove that they are, after all, as dumb as their cynical European enemies and home grown liberal traitors always claimed they were. If their enemies are right, then on Tuesday the American voters could show that the greatness which was America has now been brainwashed and dumbed down to the point where they no longer have either the ability, or the will to save themselves.

There are troubling indicators, a US correspondent of mine wrote at the weekend, incredulous at the fact that some houses still proudly displayed Democrat signs. Commentators on TV have suggested that, despite how little attention the current Administration has paid to the nation's security, the latest security alert could influence events in the Democrat's favour, if Obama pretends to be tough enough.

Yesterday an estimated 150,000 people (or 215,000 if you believe the US media, which some dumb people still do) attended Jon Stewart's “Give Barry a second chance he might get better” rally, menacingly entitled “Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear", somehow missing the soviet style implication that anyone who does not agree with the ruling administration must necessarily be insane.

Things could go either way, and the presidents colour, and voter racism, may influence events, but not in the way the liars in the press pretend. We must never underestimate quite how racist the black and Latino electorate in America are or how strongly most white voters wish not to be racist. Whatever, their reasons for voting, they know they are delivering a verdict on America's first black president, can they deliver that verdict or will Obama's colour save him at the last moment?.

In the same way as we have been brainwashed about Americans, they also have been brainwashed about themselves. These are, alter all, a people who still believe that racism is a white on black affair, despite all the evidence around them, that lie could still win the day.

That fact, more than the inevitable mass voter fraud by the Democrats and lies the media will surely tell is the greatest threat in Tuesday's election.

America faces the greatest test they have faced in generations will they finally act against the forces determined to destroy them or is all too late?. In just over 48 hours we will know if America can still be saved, or if its people truly are as stupid as their enemies always said they were.

Censor bugbear reports Saturday, 30 October 2010:

Armed attacks against rural whites peaked during WC2010

Armed attacks and murders of ‘rural whites’ in southern Africa between Jan 2010 to Oct 30 2010 -- peaked during World Cup 2010

Oct 30 2010 – According to the two graphs from http://www.farmitracker.com, the number of armed attacks targeting ‘white rural residents’-- 96% of those reported were Afrikaans-speakers -- showed a dramatic peak during and after the FIFA World Cup 2010 football tournaments in South Africa.

Over the past ten months there were 216 attacks against whites in cities; 535 against white smallholders, farmers …

The first graph shows the 216 logged attacks in towns and cities, increased during the WC2010 when the ANC-regime stopped publishing such reports).

  • It showed a total of 216 attacks logged against urban whites from Jan 2010 to Oct 30 2010, peaking in August with 8 on one day and now levelling off to three attacks a day.
  • The second graph shows details of the more than 535 armed attacks targetting ‘whites’ on farms and smallholdings.
The highest level of city-attacks– eight on one day – occurred in August 2010 – just after the WC2010 had ended and during the internet campaign of several 'black-racist’ groups such as COSAS and Blackwash urging blacks in townships to ethnically-cleanse all the white families.

Churchill – Role Model For a new Generation

By Mister Fox

There is a great and evil slander laid upon those who call for control and common sense in open-door immigration. They are demonised as “Nazis” and “Racists", and accused of following Hitler when really we follow Winston Churchill. The slur shows the deep hatred for the British people of the media, political, intellectual and cultural elites have - we fought Nazism and many lost family in that war.

The important thing to keep in mind while reading this is that the elites were beginning to favour immigrants over their own people. I have cited some sources in the hope that young historians will follow in developing an honest history of open-door immigration: it is virgin soil: no one else is doing it. Establishment historians are writing multi-racial propaganda for the global elites. They pretend we are a nation of immigrants with no core people or culture which is false.

Churchill was aware that religions compete with one another for power and territory and he knew the truth of slavery. In !The River War:” The stronger race soon began to prey upon the simple aboriginals... But all, without exception were hunters of men. To the great slave-market at Jeddah a continual stream of Negro captives has flowed for hundreds of years ... The dominant race of Arab invaders was unceasingly spreading its blood, religion, customs, and language among the black aboriginal population, and at the same time it harried and enslaved them” and, "Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. (1)

In his St. George’s Day address of 1933 Churchill warned of the types who were then taking over our political and intellectual life: “The worst difficulties from which we suffer do not come from without. They come from within. They do not come from the cottages of the wage earners. They come from a peculiar type of brainy people always found in our country who, if they add something to the culture, take much from its strength. Our difficulties come from the mood of unwarrantable self-abasement into which we have been cast by a powerful section of our own intellectuals. They come from the acceptance of defeatist doctrines by a large portion of our politicians. But what have they to offer but a vague internationalism, a squalid materialism, and the promise of impossible utopias?" A tribute to the Royal Marines in 1936 showed his piety to our history: “Those who do not think of the future are unworthy of their ancestors” .

His admiration for Jewish people - “the most formidable and the most remarkable race in the world” - was part of his belief in superior and inferior races and offers us an example of co-operation in our plight in Europe now.

Sir Winston Churchill tried to introduce a Bill to control immigration in 1955. He also wanted the Conservative Party to adopt the slogan “Keep England White” to fight the 1955 General Election. These are important details of our modern history which are ignored by dishonest historians who write propaganda for the elites. (2)

There had been racial battles in 1870s and 1911 in Cardiff with the Chinese community but those of 1919 caused five deaths and serious injuries. Whole areas were cordoned off by the police and hundreds taken into protective custody. The Times reported the Cardiff battle: “Racial riots of a grave character occurred at Cardiff during the early hours of yesterday morning. The trouble seems to have broken out simultaneously in several adjacent parts of the city about midnight. A young man named Harold Smart walked up to a constable and complained that a coloured man had cut his throat”

The constable took him to hospital but he died on arrival. This culminated in crowds of whites and blacks facing and baiting each one another. Revolver shots rang out. Six Arabs faced charges including firing a revolver. It appears the riot grew out of white mens’objections to coloured men consorting with white women.
There were Race battles in 1919 in Glasgow in January, in South Shields in January and February, in London in April, and in Liverpool, Cardiff, Barry and Newport in June!

The type of attitude Churchill had to endure with his colleagues was growing even then. The early Globalist, One-Worlder, Lord Milner, wrote a Memorandum of June 23rd On the Repatriation of Coloured Men which explained why they could do nothing about it: ”I have every reason to fear, that when we get these men back to their own colonies they might be tempted to revenge themselves on the white minorities there…” This emasculated attitude grew until Churchill was nearly isolated in his own government. Oliver Lyttleton (later Lord Chandos) and the fifth Marquess of Salisbury are two other notable opponents of open-door immigration.

Even while Windrush carried immigrants here in 1948 there was racial conflict: Liverpool again, between 31 July and 2 August, in Deptford on the 18th July; and Birmingham between the 6th and 8th of August 1949 involving immigrants from seafaring backgrounds but the Progressives ignored them. The Times reported the Liverpool battle as about 50 persons ”mostly coloured appeared in court after. ..”a gang of negroes' stoned several white men who were walking peacefully. They were armed with bottles, swords, daggers, iron bars, coshes and axes. The white men hopelessly outnumbered ran away. A Negro club appeared to have been the headquarters of the coloured men, and police officers were stoned and had bottles thrown at them from club windows as they tried to disperse the crowd.”(3)

Despite this they continued with the policy of free entry for immigrants but gave no practical support to local councils and voluntary organizations. Throughout the 50.s many delegations from local councils of areas effected went to 10, Downing Street, to ask for practical help and funds. On the 21st of November 1952 the Town Clerk of Brixton asked for regulation of immigration because they could hardly cope and MP Marcus Lipton led several delegations to appeal to Downing Street as did several local councils. The programme of slum clearance was held back.

Churchill’s Cabinet discussed immigration thirteen times. The first on 25th November 1952 when he asked in Cabinet if the Post Office employed large numbers of “coloured workers”. “If so, there was some risk social problems would be created.” They were from India, Nigeria, the Gold Coast, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Mauritius, West Indies, Ceylon, British Guiana and Malaya. In all Churchill's Cabinet discussed immigration on thirteen occasions.

Churchill asked his staff to find out about problems in Lambeth, Brixton and Cardiff. B.G.Smallman, PS, to the Colonial Secretary, produced a paper on “The Coloured Population of the UK". This estimated the numbers to be 40-50,000 which included about 6,000 students. (4).

In his final ministry of 1951-55, Churchill was surrounded by effette decadent people and set the tone of weakness and emasculated leadership we have had ever since. There were no records kept of numbers entering, apparently because the immigrants were, as Commonwealth citizens, British subjects, but I believe they could not face it and wanted it to go away. Though they kept records of emigrants to Canada, New Zealand and Australia.

Historian Andrew Roberts wrote that The Commonwealth Relations Office worried that with restrictions “ there might well be a chance of the governments of India and Pakistan introducing retaliatory restrictions against the entry or residence of members of the British business community.” Commonwealth Secretary Earl Home, worried that they should not give the impression that Commonwealth citizens from India, Pakistan and Ceylon would be less favourably treated than those from the Dominions otherwise there could be retaliation.

In private interviews Roberts shows the decadence of those around Churchill: “A Minister closely involved in the decision-making process, ‘ In fact…we were just stalling and hoping for the best’… One of Mr. Churchill’s private secretaries, ‘at that time it seemed a very good idea to get bus conductors and stuff’ … a junior minister, ‘it was becoming hard to find somebody to carry your bags at the station’.’’(5)

Iain Macleod who became Colonial Secretary, who is infamous for rushing de-colonisation and causing many problems had a booklet “One World” published by Conservative Central Office in1960 the same year Prime Minister Harold MacMillan made his Winds of Change speech to the South African Parliament in Pretoria. The present Utopia is the coffee coloured, Multi-Racial society with the free movement of peoples as cheap labour. Norman Pannell, patriotic Liverpool Conservative MP, urged a practical approach to immigration at the 1958 and 1961 Conservative conferences suggesting immigrants have health checks and those who are criminal be deported. In 1958 Home Secretary RAB Butler agreed with him but did nothing. At the 1961 conference Colonial Secretary Iain Macleod countered Pannell at a fringe meeting declaring his utopian belief in the brotherhood of man.

On the 27th of June 1953 Sir Winston suffered a stroke that left him paralysed down the left side. After, he told RAB Butler, “I feel like an aeroplane at the end of its flight , in the dusk, with the petrol running out, in search of a safe landing.”(6)

Interviewed by Andrew Roberts his Foreign Affairs Personal Secretary Anthony Montague- Brown recalled that he was “simply too tired to deal with the immigration problem. He could concentrate on a few big issues at a time- like the Russians -and the rest of the time he could only give a steer and not see it through.” (7)

In November 1952 His Private Secretary, Sir John Colville noted, "He is getting tired and visibly ageing. He finds it hard to compose a speech and ideas no longer flow. (8)

Cabinet set up an Inter Departmental Committee to look into preventing an increase in the number of immigrants. It reported its findings in December 1953. This Inter Departmental Committee comprised Ministry of Labour and National Service, the National Assistance Board, the Colonial Office and Chief Constables from areas where immigrants were settling.

The Home Secretary was to ask the Committee to look into preventing an increase in the number coming for employment. There is a note to R.J.Guppy of the Home Office in The Prime Ministers papers notifying him that Churchill had seen the report in that day's Daily Telegraph "about what is termed an influx of West Indians. He is considering bringing the matter before the Cabinet and would like to have a report from the Home Secretary about it." (9)

January 1954 Home Secretary Maxwell Fyfe reported on the findings of the “Working party on the Social and Economic Problems Arising from the Growing Influx into the United Kingdom of Coloured Workers”. He stated “the unskilled workers who form the majority are difficult to place because on the whole they are physically unsuited to heavy manual work…”

The prime minister's papers show Private Secretary Montague-Brown to Civil Servant Johnston 2/11/1954 on an article in the Telegraph of 19 Oct in which the Jamaican Minister of Labour said he would not attempt to stop mass immigration. The P.M. thinks this should be brought up in Cabinet.

It is important to note that Commonwealth citizens were classed as British citizens and had the same rights as British people here. This was known as civic britannicus sum, or “equal rights for all British subjects.” The British Nationality Act of 1948 did not give them that right but codified it.

This point is made in the following example from the Cabinet Secretaries Notebooks released to the public in August 2007. These are the handwritten notes of Cabinet Meetings. They record that on 3 February 1954 under the item 'Coloured Workers', Sir Winston stated ‘Problems which will arise if many coloured people settle here. Are we to saddle ourselves with colour problems in the UK? Attracted by Welfare State. Public opinion in UK won't tolerate it once it gets beyond certain limits.' Even he did not forsee the malicious propaganda that would be used to destroy the British people by their own elites!

In March 1954 Maxwell Fyfe told Cabinet: “ large numbers of coloured people are living on National Assistance” and that “coloured landlords by their conduct are making life difficult for white people living in the same building or area…the result is that white people leave and the accommodation is then converted to furnished lettings for coloured people, with serious overcrowding and exploitation”.

Maxwell-Fyfe typifies the weak rulers. In a Cabinet memorandum of 8 March Maxwell Fyfe feared “serious difficulties involved in contemplating action which would undoubtedly land the Government in some political controversy.” Lets keep it quiet?

In cabinet in October 1954 Mr. Churchill warned Maxwell Fyfe, “that the problems arising from the immigration of coloured people required urgent and serious consideration.” Maxwell-Fyfe emphasised that there is “no power to prevent these people entering no matter how much the number may increase.” This was finally tackled by the 1961 immigration Bill.

The Cabinet Notebooks of this period show Churchill’s attempt to get a Bill to control immigration introduced. It also refers to Cyril Osborne’s 1955 attempt to introduce a Bill to control immigration. NB: The Marquess of Salisbury describes the need for a Bill as “urgent.” This is a transcript from the actual Cabinet discussion:

Coloured Immigrants.

P.M. Need for decision before long.

Anthony Eden. Before Commonwealth P.M. mtg.

Henry Hopkinson. Osborne M.P. is thinking of introducg. Bill under 10 min. rule.

Lloyd George . Depn. y’day from B’ham. No objn. to them as workers. But qua housing. Figures are impressive.

Viscount Swinton. Might consider Cttee. on social aspects, alone.

A.E. Might be useful – to re-inforce action we decide to take.

P.M. Not in favour. Better to introduce Bill. May find we cd. get it thro’. At least we shd. have shown our view.

Marquess of Salisbury. Urgent.

H.H. Movement is starting now in favour of immign. from Barbados.

[Exit H.H.

This brings us to where we started with the discussion that Harold Macmillan referred to in his diary entry for January 20th 1955: "More discussion about the West Indian immigrants. A Bill is being drafted - but it's not an easy problem. P.M. thinks 'Keep England White' a good slogan! (11)

The Bill Sir Winston referred to was not ready until June, two months after he had to retire because of his health. His successor Anthony Eden was an internationalist who told Conservative Cyril Osborne in the House of Commons, “There is no question of any action being taken to control immigration and in any case most were from Eire.” Then in November Eden’s Cabinet ceased discussion of immigration.

Just before he gave up the Premiership in 1955 Mr. Churchill told Spectator owner and editor Ian Gilmour that immigration "is the most important subject facing this country, but I cannot get any of my ministers to take any notice". (12)

Cabinet Secretaries Notebooks covering this period CAB 195/13 was released at the beginning of February 2008. The papers of British Prime Ministers are classified under PREM at the public records Office at Kew. PREM 11/824 covers Churchill’s premiership. It has Information requested by the Prime Minister on immigration of coloured workers to the UK and their employment in the Civil Service; deportation of British subjects; powers of Colonial Governments; employment of Jamaicans in the UK 1952-1955 etc.

A Danger for America

In the lead up to next Tuesday's Mid Term elections in the USA, American readers might wish to take note of this cautionary posting at The American Thinker.

The Democrats' Final Recourse: Massive Vote Fraud
By Selwyn Duke

The reports are rolling in from all over the country. A Craven County, NC resident attempts to vote a straight Republican ticket, but his choices come up straight Democrat four times, despite receiving assistance from poll workers. In NC's Lenoir County, registered Democrat Ervin Norville also tries to vote straight Republican but finds that his ballot has the names of several Democrat candidates selected. Boulder City, NV resident Joyce Ferrara says that when she and several others went to vote for Sharon Angle, they found that Senator Harry Reid's name was already checked off. In Dallas County, TX's congressional district 30, Democrat Eddie Bernice Johnson's name was the only one on the ballot in a few locations (no, she isn't running unopposed). And some states have been late in mailing out military absentee ballots, whose recipients, interestingly, are known for their Republican leanings.

These happenings are generally referred to as "mistakes" and "glitches," but if that's all they are, then we're witnessing a truly historic anomaly. Because either the mainstream media is now suppressing stories of mistakes and glitches benefiting Republicans, or the laws of probability have suddenly been rescinded and tossed coins are coming up donkey tails every time. Welcome to American elections, Venezuelan style.

The New American Depression

When the news pundits tell us that unemployment in America is at around 9.5%, what they don't tell us is, were the figures calculated in the same way as they are in Europe, the current figure would be closer to twice that number, especially in certain areas, such as California .

The official figures are based on those who are in receipt of unemployment benefit, however, unemployment benefits are only available for a set period of between 26 weeks up to one year, after that, they are classified as "Discouraged" and therefore no longer counted as seeking employment, whether they are or not.

Last year, because of the current financial situation Congress took the unprecedented step of extending unemployment to 99 weeks, at a cost of over $100 billion. However, time has now passed and many people are reaching the end of the 99 weeks with no prospect of a job and facing the abyss.

A truth disguised


Yesterday, much of the news media announced that the most popular children's names in Britain in 2009 were Oliver and Olivia, Oliver having knocked Jack from the top spot which it has allegedly held for the last fourteen years. Even the Guardian reported this frivolous news item, albeit, presumably conscious of its role as the mouthpiece of the fascist left, chose to illustrate the story with its own vision of British babyhood.

Most of the news items listed the top ten names of both genders, all reassuringly Anglo Saxon names like Harry, Alfie, James and Thomas, whilst the favourite girls names, such as Lily, Emily, Grace and Jessica were also all quintessentially English.

There was nothing in the story which revealed the extent to which the colonisation of our country in recent decades threatens our very future as a native people. Almost as an after thought we were told that Mohammed had only made it to number 16 nationally, albeit it was the most popular in the West Midlands .

However, as with so much else in our media, the headline only revealed part of the story and was essentially misleading. The truth lay hidden amongst the statistics.

Oliver was the most popular boys name on account of the fact that 7263 boys where named (oops! I almost wrote “Christened”) Oliver last year. However, there is only one common way of spelling Oliver, that is not the case with names commemorating Aisha's old man.

During 2009 there were 3,300 boys named Mohammed, 2,162 Muhammads, 1,073 Mohammads, and 980 called either Muhammed, Mohamed, Mohamad, Muhamed or Mohammod, if you add all those together, you reach a total of 7,549.

The news media attempted to disguise the truth with a reassuringly inaccurate piece of reporting, however, the fact is that more children born in Britain last year were named after the founder of Islam, an ideology committed to world domination, than any other name, Celtic, Anglo Saxon or otherwise.

This is further evidence of just how far down the sulphurous road to our own destruction we have already traveled.

Wikileaks: More Civilians Killed In south Africa Than in Iraq War Over Last 6 Years

As I type Channel 4 TV's Dispatches documentary is reporting on the Iraq War data recently published by Wikileaks. Amongst the hundreds of thousands of documents released are figures that show that, in terms of civilian deaths, South Africa, a country which is not currently at war has proved far more deadly than Iraq.

According to information released by Wikileaks, the total number of deaths caused by the conflict in Iraq over the last six years has been 109,032 of which 66,081 are recorded as civilians.

In the same period, according to South African government figures an average of 18,000 people
have been murdered each year, totaling at least 108,000. That so many people have died violently in a country which is not at war is shocking, the fact that it is has gone virtually unreported in the world's media is unforgivable.

I know this is cheating, but as I don't have time to write an article today, here are a random selection of news stories from the last week in Multi-Cult UK (All these stories are from the last seven days and are in addition to the crooked Asian peers I posted about on Thursday)

Corrupt PC and gang plot kidnap of Bank Manager

A corrupt police officer who 'callously' plotted to kidnap a bank manager was jailed for 13 years today.

Pc Mesut Karakas, 25, conspired with Richmond Darko, 25, Ijah Rowe, 24, Jamie Lowe, 25, and Gokhan Kuru, 24, to kidnap a London-based Lloyds TSB manager in an attempt to steal money.

They planned to stage a roadwork scene near the bank manager's home as a distraction while they kidnapped their victim.

Suspect

Same suspect sought for two attacks on women

On Tuesday night (October 19) a 19 year old student was grabbed around the waist along Torrington Place. The attacker tried to lead her away but eventually fled with her bag.

The next night (October 20) a 21 year old student was grabbed in Ridgmount Gardens and threatened at knife point. She was sexually asaulted but managed to escape.

It is thought the same man was responsible for both attacks.

Nisar Ahmed

Teacher Banned for being Useless


A teacher who is judged to be incapable of ever improving his work has become the first to be banned for life from the classroom due to incompetence.

Nisar Ahmed will never reach 'requisite standards' of teaching and cannot work in state schools again, a panel ruled.

The General Teaching Council for England found the 46-year-old guilty of serious professional incompetence and said there was a risk that pupils would be seriously disadvantaged if he was ever allowed to return to lessons.

Mr Ahmed was head of business studies at the John O'Gaunt Community Technology College in Hungerford, Berkshire, from September 2007 to January 2009.

Dentist Offers discount in Exchange for sex

A mother-of-five yesterday spoke of her trauma after her dentist pestered her for sexual favours in return for discounted treatment.

Chammelle Courtney’s world had been turned upside down after her husband Mark suffered an asthma attack which stopped his heart and left him badly brain damaged.

But shortly after the 36-year-old lorry driver was admitted to a nursing home for round-the-clock care, dentist Milan Shah propositioned her.

Bombarding her with calls he told her: ‘You are not getting any loving from your husband and I am not from my wife. Maybe we can help each other out.’

London Borough becomes 'Islamic Republic'

Outside the Wellington Way polling station in Tower Hamlets yesterday, as at many other polling stations in the borough, people had to run a gauntlet of Lutfur Rahman supporters to reach the ballot box. As one Bengali woman voter went past them, we heard one of the Rahman army scolding her for her “immodest dress.”

That incident is perhaps a tiny taste of the future for Britain’s poorest borough now it has elected Mr Rahman as its first executive mayor, with almost total power over its £1 billion budget. At the count last night, one very senior figure in the Tower Hamlets Labour Party said: “It really is Britain’s Islamic republic now.”

For the last eight months – without complaint or challenge from Mr Rahman – this blog and newspaper have laid out his close links with a group of powerful local businessmen and with a Muslim supremacist body, the Islamic Forum of Europe (IFE) - which believes, in its own words, in transforming the “very infrastructure of society, its institutions, its culture, its political order and its creed… from ignorance to Islam.” Mr Rahman has refused to deny these claims.

Joanna Michael and Cyron Williams - Usual story

Emergency call handler sacked after Cardiff woman's murder


A police call handler has been sacked after an inquiry into why officers took so long to respond to a woman's distress calls as she was being killed.

Joanna Michael, 25, dialled 999 twice during the attack by ex-boyfriend Cyron Williams in Cardiff in August 2009, but when officers arrived she was dead.

(As with the BBC story most news sources omitted to include a photo of the killer, presumably hoping that the name Cyron Williams sounded Welsh enough to fool most people)


Joe Haigh hides his face when revealing head wounds

Asian gang walk free as race attack trial collapses
The parents of a teenager attacked and left for dead by a gang of Asians say they feel “cheated” by the system after the collapse of a court trial.

Joseph Haigh, then aged 14, was savagely beaten by a gang of up to 15 Asian youths in Rectory Park, Thornhill, last October.

He was knocked unconscious with a half a house brick, stabbed in the face with a screwdriver and kicked repeatedly in the head as he lay helpless. His attackers hurled racist abuse at him, referring to the colour of his skin, then left him for dead. Joseph, pouring with blood, came round and staggered to a nearby bus stop to raise the alarm.

This week seven youths, four aged 17, two 15-year-olds and an 18-year-old, went on trial accused of causing grievous bodily harm with intent and racially-aggravated GBH.

PRESS reporter David Miller was subjected to abuse and intimidation from the public gallery at Leeds Crown Court.

David was alone on the press bench on Tuesday afternoon during a break.

David was asked by an Asian woman what she needed to do to make sure the case wasn’t reported.

He was then asked by another woman who he worked for, and was subjected to a tirade of abuse from an Asian man.

David told the court clerk what had happened and he was assured that if there was any repeat the matter would be reported to the judge

One third of "Brain Surgeon" immigrants in unskilled jobs

Laws designed to bring highly-qualified foreign workers such as brain surgeons into the UK were used by immigrants to get jobs as shop assistants and security guards, the Coalition claimed last night.

Immigration Minister Damian Green unveiled research showing that nearly one in three immigrants in the Labour Government's 'tier one' category for top-level app­licants last year ended up doing ordinary unskilled jobs.

Tier one immigrants are categ­orised as doctors, scientists and entrepreneurs so skilled they could enter the UK without a job offer, said Mr Green

'These are meant to be absolutely the brightest and the best,' he said in a BBC interview.

But the anomalies had been revealed after a sample was analysed. 'We have discovered that of the visas we issued last year 29 per cent are doing unskilled jobs,' he said. '

Odai Salah

Jordanian sentenced to 30 years for murder of Devon Pensioners


A failed businessman who murdered a well-to-do elderly couple at their seaside home and stole from them to try to pay off his heavy debts was jailed for 30 years today.

Odai Salah befriended Rosemary Windle and Maurece Smith, both 71, by claiming he could put them in touch with business contacts in the Middle East. But in January he armed himself with a knife and went to their flat in Torquay, Devon, where he strangled Windle and stabbed and suffocated Smith.

Salah, 28, returned at least twice to the murder scene to create the impression the couple were alive, giving himself more time to use the cheques and credit cards he stole.

Taliban "Britain is out greatest source of funding"

“We are not like a government, we depend on individuals,” a Taliban commander told Sky News. “We get donations from our Muslim brothers in Britain for jihad and they help us. It is the duty of all Muslims to pay towards fighting a jihad. And this is how we get our money and buy our weapons and carry on fighting.”

The commander added that an attack on Britain and Europe could happen “at any time”.

Victims of the "R" word, or just crooks?

Baroness Uddin, Lord Bhatia and Lord Paul

Three members of the House of Lords (the second chamber of the UK government) were suspended today as a result of having made “incorrect” expenses claims totalling some £200,000 ($313,000). The peers had claimed properties outside London in which they had never lived were their main homes, thus enabling, them to falsely claim huge sums in expenses for living in their own homes in London

All three, Baroness Uddin Lord Swraj Paul, and Lord Bhatia are of East Asian origin, and in fact Lord Paul, who ranks amongst Britain's richest men sought to excuse himself on the basis of his ethnicity in that he didn't fully understand the term “main residence”.

One might be tempted to suggest that given that corruption is endemic within the cultures from which these individuals originate, this is merely the result of importing such cultures into our own.

However, a further noble peer, Lord Ali (also of non-European origin) has a different explanation. According to Lord Ali, the fact that only three Asian peers have been found to have fiddled huge sums of tax payer's money, is down to ..... you guessed it!! ... that clever, multi-application, get out of jail free card “r” word.......... racism!! (report here)

Well, what did you expect they would say?!!

In other developments, a further Tory Peer, Lord Taylor of Warwick, a one time black lawyer, of west Indian origin, previously best known for alleging racism was the cause of his defeat in an election in Cheltenham in 1992 is facing prosecution on criminal charges of false accounting.

What was it that judge said about disgracing a Banana Republic?

A rather different fantasy

The election of US president Barrack Obama was very much a Hollywood fantasy, indeed some might say it was inspired very much by Hollywood. The image of a black president, usually played by Morgan Freeman has appeared a number of times in movies such as Deep Impact, and of course in the suspenseful TV drama 24. Hollywood and the media must have thought their dreams had come true when a black man with seemingly no past somehow, briefly, became senator for Illinois and then stood for president.

This was their fantasy made flesh, indeed for some it was their leg trembling wet dream.

However, there are other Hollywood fantasies.

I am sure we have all seen repeats of "The Omen" series of Movies in which the character Damion, who is in fact the Devil's spawn aspires to become the most powerful man in the world.

It makes a rather terrifying scenario that perhaps via some electoral fluke or lack of adequate scrutiny on the part of a besotted news media and and political elite someone completely mad or maybe even rather daemonic could achieve a position of almost total power, access to the nuclear button and the most formidable arsenal ever assembled.

One can only contemplate with horror what impact a totally mad or indeed totally evil maniac could have were he to achieve such power.

With that in mind, I invite you take a look at a number of pictures, some of which were released by the White house in the last week

Pan Atlantic Show trials - Part Two

Early last year I wrote an article entitled “Blood Sacrifice Denied”, in which I reported on the outcome of the trial of two white American teenagers charged with the racially motivated killing of a Mexican illegal immigrant. At the time I expressed the view that the verdict, both boys were acquitted of all charges, including murder and “ethnic intimidation” but convicted of simple assault, sat fairly with the evidence given in court, whilst denying a blood sacrifice to satisfy the various race hate groups and anti white media pundits who had laid siege to the court throughout the trial.

In saying this I had underestimated the vindictiveness and racism of the current US Department of Justice which, despite the jury’s verdict proceeded to bring federal civil rights charges against the two young men.

As a result, last week the race hate groups, such as the Hispanic “La Raza” (The Race) who had stood pumping the air with their fists outside the court, got what they wanted when Derrick Donchak and Brandon Piekarsky were convicted of what the media is predictably choosing to call a “hate crime”.

However, as evidence of the lengths to which the US department of Justice were prepared to go in order to obtain a conviction against Donchak and Piekarsky it should be noted that they have, in fact been convicted under a statute of the Federal Fair Housing act.

The particular statute in question makes it a crime to “use a person’s race, national origin or ethnicity as a basis to interfere, with violence or threats of violence, with a person’s right to live where he chooses to live”

One can only assume that this charge was based on the fact that one of the people involved in the two part brawl which led to Luis Ramerez death, not incidentally one of those convicted, told Ramerez to “go back to Mexico". A statement which, given that Ramerez was an illegal immigrant amounts to little more than advising a law breaker to stop breaking the law. How exactly does telling an illegal immigrant to return to his homeland differ from telling a robber to stop robbing?

This was an outrageous act on the part of the US Department of Justice, who, as you may recall recently dropped a case of illegal voter intimidation against the New Black Panther party, after the case had in fact been won. The DOJ under arch Obama crony Eric Holder have reacted in a manner which would be unthinkable had the races been reversed, as is so often the case, merely to placate left wing activists and illegal alien support groups.

Furthermore, for no other reason than pure visceral racial bias, have chosen to disregard the patent fairness of the original jury’s verdict.

The details of the incident during which Ramerez died, strongly mitigate against the original charge of murder and despite one statement, made by a third party, provide no conclusive evidence of racial bias on the part of either defendant, but, hey why let facts get in the way of a good “hate crime” prosecution?

Although there are some differences in the witness statements, they agree on the following:

  • The defendants were part of a group, who had been drinking and who came across 25 year old Ramerez alone in a park with his girlfriend’s 13 year old sister.
  • The group asked Ramerez what he was doing and this led to a brawl, during which the “Go back to Mexico" comment was made.
  • The brawl ceased and the group of white boys began to walk away leaving Luis Ramerez in a sufficiently fit and uninjured state to make a number of cell phone calls.
  • Ramerez then pursued the group of white boys and charged at them thus initiating a further brawl. It was during this second brawl that one of the group of white boys (again, not one of the defendants) punched Ramerez causing him to fall and hit his head on the sidewalk (pavement).

Forensic evidence confirmed that Ramerez’s injuries were consistent with a moving head colliding with a stationary object rather than by a moving object colliding with a stationary head as would have been the case had death resulted from kicks to the head as the prosecution alleged. (a more detailed account can be found in this excellent article )

The defendants were correctly convicted of assault during a drunken brawl, albeit they could have claimed that there was a significant degree of provocation on the part of Luis Ramerez.

However, it is inconceivable that a fair trial, as averse to this flagrant travesty of justice, would find that the evidence as produced in court supported either the charges or indeed the conviction.

Also explained in the report I linked to above, there are also questions as to the basis of the Federal Civil Rights charges which were brought, given that civil rights only apply to American citizens and not to illegal aliens, consequently Ramerez had no civil rights to be violated.

However, irrespective of technicalities, this was clearly a show trial leading to a demonstrably unjust outcome. Despite the contrived nature of this prosecution the boys could face life in prison, and that is certainly the sentence which the racists running the US Department of Justice will be pressing for.

Vast swathes of the American public have been bullied and brainwashed to the point where many may no longer be capable of feeling outrage on behalf of white males involved in conflict with non-whites irrespective of the circumstances.

However, in the highly unlikely event that the case were truthfully and fairly reported it should cause all Americans considerable concern at the degree to which the rights of that nations last remaining unprotected group have been eroded by the forces of progressive hatred.

Pan Atlantic Show trials - Part One

Despite the prosecution in the “hate speech” trial of Dutch Politician Geert Wilders having asked for all charges to be dismissed, the case is continuing. In addition the Judges have refused to hear evidence from 15 potential defence witnesses effectively whittling Mr. Wilders’ witness list down to three, from the original 18, while at the same time adding to the witness list against him the Muslims groups which initiated the complaints that led to his arrest.

Tellingly a verdict is expected on November the 5th

It is becoming troublingly clear to any honest observer, that, although the expression Kangaroo Court may not exist in Dutch, the reality most certainly appears to.

71 year old grandfather murdered, nothing stolen

I have been informed of a further farm killing in South Africa which occurred at the weekend. 71 year old grandfather Gert Reyneke, and his wife had visited their daughter and her husband at their smallholding near Pretoria in order to celebrate their granddaughter's 14th birthday.

Mr Reyneke had planned to make a cast iron bedstead for the child, however whilst sleeping in a flat a few meters from the main homestead, the couple were awoken by the sound of breaking glass. It was when he went to investigate that Mr. Reyneke was shot dead by an apparent intruder.

No property was taken by the intruders and motive remains open to question.

According to my calculations, Mr Reyneke's killing brings the total number of white farmers murdered since the ANC came to power in 1994 to 3024

The Maitlis Quandary

Following the rescue of the Chilean miners last week, there was a report on BBCs's Newsnight, when leggy auto-cutie anchor Emily Maitlis interviewed the Chilean writer, (and one time Duke Lacrosse hate 88 member), Ariel Dorfman. During the interview Maitlis referred to the numerous displays of patriotism by the miners, how they chanted the name of their homeland upon their escape, how they had sung their national anthem with such obvious enthusiasm and pride. The Chilean flag had been repeatedly waved, and even the escape capsule was painted in the national colours.

Maitlis appeared bemused and stated that she could never imagine such behaviour happening here. Of course, she was right such a thing would, now, never happen here. As a member of the controlled media the fragrant Emily's should know her own commanders would not allow it.

She and the over promoted, left wing, academic muttered a few politically correct platitudes in explanation but did not arrive at any particularly meaningful answer as to why Chilean culture differs so greatly from what passes for our own modern culture.

Of course, in truth, whatever else one may have to say about the 1973 coup d'etat and the subsequent dictatorship, it had the result that the Chilean people did not have Marxists whispering poison in their ears from their earliest school days throughout that crucial period of the 1970's and 1980's which led to the decline of so many western nations, including our own.

Unlike the British, the people of Chile were not taught that national pride and patriotism were evil, undesirable or simply not very cool characteristics. The left always accuse the right of hatred, but it is in fact their own hatred with is the most destructive. The left has undermined many nations from within for no other reason than their hatred of what was there before.

The left did not have the opportunity to do their thing in Chile, and as a result in recent weeks we have seen a display of national unity and national pride, the like of which I fear our own nation may no longer be capable of mustering.

One other feature of the news coverage of the mine rescue was the stress our media placed on the fact that one of the miners was an “immigrant” from Bolivia. I suspect our media did this in the knowledge that due to the poor standard of modern education, and the fact that doing so would not involve either booing at Simon Cowell or admiring Tess Daly's latest frock, nobody would bother to look at a map and notice the proximity of Bolivia to the Atacama desert.

This “immigration” was the equivalent of a Frenchman working in Dover, or an Irishman working in Liverpool. Furthermore the ethnic difference between a Bolivian and a Chilean is virtually non-existent. This was not immigration as we know it and which has been forced upon us. Chile is not a multi cultural society.

It is of course true that evil things happened in Chile and that many people died. However, are the three thousand casualties of the Chilean dictatorship, including the 1,000 “disappeared”, that much greater than the casualties of the vicious ideology currently ruling our own country.? I have little doubt that a fair and honest analysis, were such a thing now possible in this country, would attribute more than 3,000 British deaths to a direct result of multiculturalism in the same period. (American readers may also wish to consider that question)

And tragic as each death was, the number fades into insignificance when compared to the in excess of 180,000 non-medically essential abortions carried out in this country each year, due also to a political ideology.

Throughout the 1970's and 1980's the Chilean regime were international pariahs, hated by the left and held up as an example of all that was evil. The Chilean leader, General Augusto Pinochet, was viewed as a monster and pursued to his grave by Socialist zealots.

However, from our perspective now in 2010 we can only look at Chile and wonder which of our nations really lived through the most evil dictatorship, and which nation is in the fittest state to face the 21st Century.

Spinning the news from South Africa

"The lies aren't working Tutu, we need a distraction - why don't you retire?"

Last month much of the Western press were gleefully repeating claims by South African police and government sources that there has been a significant drop in the previously rising levels of crime. There has allegedly been a fall in the number of murders by 8.6% to less than 17,000 in the last year, meanwhile street robbery is down by over 10% and sexual offences have fallen by 4.4%.

There has also allegedly been a fall of 6.8% in car jackings, which may come as a surprise to some.

This follows wide spread news reports in July stating that crime rates had fallen significantly during the world Cup

Much less reported was the fact that all charges against Nico Venter the man who had been accused of the horrific murder of 17 year old Anika Smit have been dropped.

The killing of Anika Smit received a lot of publicity in South Africa on account of its highly brutal nature and the fact that the victim’s hands had been cut off and taken by her killer.

It was this macabre aspect of the murder which led many to suspect that there may have been a muti connection to the crime. Muti killings, where body parts taken from a live and preferably conscious victim are used in tribal medicine, have been a growing problem in South Africa in the last decade or so. Hence a number of eye-brows were raised when Nico Venter, Anika Smit’s, white, ex-boyfriend was arrested and charged with killing her.

The prosecution gave no reason for dismissing the charges and Venter’s defence lawyers expressed themselves as baffled by this latest development. However, there are strong indications that there never were any grounds for charging Venter other than the obvious fact that he fitted the authorities’ preferred profile.

I suspect that the truth about Anika Smit's murder will never be told, because it would reveal a truth about the new South Africa which too many people have too much invested in hiding.

This, together with the fact finally news have started to trickle out of crimes which were committed during the world cup, including a number of farm attacks, all of which were previously unreported, inevitably make one wonder whether a significant degree of spinning is taking place.

Statistics are only as reliable as those who compile them and in a country with so many there is inevitably a temptation to embroider facts so that they suit a preferred narrative.

The universal preferred narrative during the World Cup was to showcase South Africa to the world as a happy crime free rainbow utopia. Indeed various national comparisons were made all deliberately intended to present the country which western media and politicians played such a huge role in bringing to its current state in a favourable light. The “loveable” South African s were compared to the “moody” French, the “arrogant” Brits and the “cheating” Dutch.

Some of this may have had some merit, but had the commentators taken off their deliberately rose tinted spectacles they may not have viewed the home fans in quite such a “loveable” light.

The Afrikaner Bleed paper recently revealed that there were a number of Farm attacks during the world cup, although none of them appear to have made it into the media until the foreign press had left.

In the last six to eight weeks there have been a series of attacks, both fatal and non fatal, some of which I have included in my latest update to the South of the Zambezi blog today, which can be read by clicking here and only last week the dreadful killing of Jan and Elizabeth Smit which I posted about earlier today. (As far as I know Mr. and Mrs. Smit were not related to Anika Smit)

There is, on course no mention of of the latest attacks in the Western media, and precious little reporting of them in the South African media. We are sold a lie about South Africa, the great rainbow nation. However, the day is fast approaching when that lie will be exposed. Let us hope that, when it is exposed, it is not in the manner which we who know the truth most fear.
