the front page today

I suppose in one sense this might affect America as well as the UK, taking past history into account.  We can be sure that the TSA has taken note. 

I’m not even dressed for the day yet.
Came down for something I can’t even remember now.  Was going back to bed for an hour but first, since I was downstairs I thought I’d take the papers off the front porch.

This is the first thing I saw. 

Normally, a headline like this would not surprise me if it was splashed across the Daily Mail front page.  But I do open both eyes when it’s on the Telegraph.
But then, I’m meant to.  Aren’t I?

I am not making light of this threat.  But to be honest, I’m still concerned for lots of reasons, about the subject of Drew’s last post re. court ruling against Arizona.
Who knows. Perhaps the subjects of this headline may start coming in through Mexico, since since the court jesters have decided that states are not as sovereign as originally thought or meant to be.

By Tom Whitehead, Security Editor
Jonathan Evans said the terror network has taken advantage of the unstable region, in the wake of last year’s revolutions, to spread its influence and create new bases for attacks.

British would-be jihadis are known to be receiving training in the likes of Libya and Egypt, mirroring what has already happened in the Yemen and Somalia.

And they could return to attack the UK in what is a “new and worrying development”, he said.

Mr Evans, the Director General of MI5, warned of the emerging threats in a rare speech, his first in almost two years. In his talk he also:

: Revealed that the intelligence services and police are preparing for a potential threat from extremists and even lone wolf terrorists should the Eurozone collapse.

: Warned State-sponsored and criminal cyber attacks risked “real world damage” including one British company which has suffered estimated losses of £800m after being hacked.

: Suggested a potential return to State-sponsored terrorism by Iran.

: Said it would be “extraordinary and self-defeating” if the Government’s proposed new email and phone snooping powers did not go ahead.

Popular revolts across Arab nations were last year welcomed around the world and resulted in, among others, the end of Hosni Mubarak’s reign in Egypt and Muammar Gaddafi regime in Libya.

Nick Clegg, the deputy prime minister, described events at the time as “incredibly exciting”.

But in the inaugural Lord Mayor’s Annual Defence and Security Lecture in London last night, Mr Evans warned a new terror threat has emerged from an “Arab world in radical transition”.

He said while the events offered long term hope there was a “more immediate problem” as al-Qaeda has returned to its native home.

“Today parts of the Arab world have once more become a permissive environment for al-Qaeda.

“This is the completion of a cycle – al-Qaeda first moved to Afghanistan in the 1990s due to pressure in their Arab countries of origin. They moved on to Pakistan after the fall of the Taliban.

“And now some are heading home to the Arab world again. And a small number of British would be jihadis are also making their way to Arab countries to seek training and opportunities for militant activity, as they do in Somalia and Yemen.

“Some will return to the UK and pose a threat here. This is a new and worrying development and could get worse as events unfold.”

Antonin, Still My Hero

Please try to find some time to read the SCOTUS decision on the Arizona immigration law, and think through what it means. And what precedents are being set here, such as Hey States, Screw You if We The Feds decide we’re no longer going to enforce one of our own laws because we don’t feel like it.

Selective application of the law, on the whim of a very small elite. Without support from the Legislative Branch, or their debating and nullifying such law. And with no riposte against such allowed by the Several States. Because now the Judical Branch has Said So.

How can this be construed as anything other than Tyranny?

Antonin Scalia, dissenting:

Today’s opinion, ap-proving virtually all of the Ninth Circuit’s injunction against enforcement of the four challenged provisions of Arizona’s law, deprives States of what most would con- sider the defining characteristic of sovereignty: the power to exclude from the sovereign’s territory people who have no right to be there. Neither the Constitution itself nor even any law passed by Congress supports this result. I dissent.

As a sovereign, Arizona has the inherent power to ex-clude persons from its territory, subject only to those limitations expressed in the Constitution or constitution-ally imposed by Congress. That power to exclude has long been recognized as inherent in sovereignty.
...
There is no doubt that “before the adoption of the consti-tution of the United States” each State had the author- ity to “prevent [itself] from being burdened by an influx of persons.” Mayor of New York v. Miln, 11 Pet. 102, 132– 133 (1837). And the Constitution did not strip the States of that authority. To the contrary, two of the Constitu-tion’s provisions were designed to enable the States to prevent “the intrusion of obnoxious aliens through other States.”

He writes how the States had power to exclude the unwanted way back at the beginnings of our nationhood, under the Articles of Confederation, and that this power was only “regulated” (ie evened out; it’s original contextual meaning) by a federal policy: it was not canceled.

In other words, the naturalization power was given to Congress not to abrogate States’ power to exclude those they did not want, but to vindicate it.

Two other provisions of the Constitution are an ac-knowledgment of the States’ sovereign interest in protect-ing their borders. Article I provides that “[n]o State shall, without the Consent of the Congress, lay any Imposts or Duties on Imports or Exports, except what may be abso-lutely necessary for executing it’s inspection Laws.” Art. I, §10, cl. 2 (emphasis added). This assumed what everyone assumed: that the States could exclude from their territory dangerous or unwholesome goods. A later portion of the same section provides that “[n]o State shall, without the Consent of Congress, . . . engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.” Art. I, §10, cl. 3 (emphasis added). This limits the States’ sovereignty (in a way not relevant here) but leaves intact their inherent power to protect their territory.

And he keeps the timeline marching right along, dealing with the first Alien And Seditions Act (1798sh)

In fact, the controversy surrounding the Alien and Sedition Acts involved a debate over whether, under the Constitution, the States had exclusive authority to enact such immigration laws.
...
The Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions, written in denunciation of these Acts, insisted that the power to exclude unwanted aliens rested solely in the States. Jefferson’s Kentucky Resolutions insisted “that alien friends are under the jurisdiction and protection of the laws of the state wherein they are [and] that no power over them has been delegated to the United States, nor prohibited to the individual states, distinct from their power over citizens.”
...
Madison’s Virginia Resolutions likewise contended that the Alien Act pur-ported to give the President “a power nowhere delegated to the federal government.”

Yeah, that Jefferson. Old TJ himself. Founding Father #1. But let’s not pay any attention to him, because he owned slaves. And the selfsame James Madison, Founding Father #4. Another Dead White Male who can be ignored these days.

Fast forward to Mayor of New York v. Miln, 1824, and Scalia points out that SCOTUS in those days supported the State’s power of exclusion, because IT WAS BUILT IN:

“The power . . . of New York to pass this law having undeniably existed at the formation of the constitu-tion, the simply inquiry is, whether by that instru-ment it was taken from the states, and granted to congress; for if it were not, it yet remains with them.” Id., at 132.
And the Court held that it remains.

One would conclude from the foregoing that after the adoption of the Constitution there was some doubt about the power of the Federal Government to control immigration, but no doubt about the power of the States to do so.

He traces the entire history of federal immigration law and authority, but reminds us that, just because a State has not exercised a Power in some time, that Power has not gone away

In light of the predominance of federal immigration restrictions in modern times, it is easy to lose sight of the States’ traditional role in regulating immigration—and to overlook their sovereign prerogative to do so.
...
The mere existence of federal action in the immigration area—and the so-called field preemption arising from that action, upon which the Court’s opinion so heavily relies, ante, at 9–11—cannot be regarded as such a prohibition. We are not talking here about a federal law prohibiting the States from regulating bubble-gum advertising, or even the construction of nuclear plants. We are talking about a federal law going to the core of state sovereignty: the power to exclude.

and shows us the legal simplicity that such power can not be taken away willy-nilly - “field preemption”, aka “we have the power and you don’t because we’re doing it now” - but only by direct legislative action. And cites case precedent of course.

He then goes on to take the majority decision apart point by point and show the shortcomings in their reasoning.

And then he gets down to the heart of it:

What I do fear—and what Arizona and the States that support it fear—is that “federal policies” of nonenforcement will leave the States helpless before those evil effects of illegal immigration that the Court’s opinion dutifully recites in its prologue but leaves unremedied in its disposition.

Which means that the States have no recourse whatsoever if the Feds decide to not enforce one of their own laws ... and a pussy whipped Legislature does not immediately being impeachment proceedings for such deliberate lapse. Because not enforcing the law ... is against the law.

But there has come to pass, and is with us today, the specter that Arizona and the States that support it predicted: A Federal Govern-ment that does not want to enforce the immigration laws as written, and leaves the States’ borders unprotected against immigrants whom those laws would exclude. So the issue is a stark one. Are the sovereign States at the mercy of the Federal Executive’s refusal to enforce the Nation’s immigration laws? A good way of answering that question is to ask: Would the States conceivably have entered into the Union if the Constitution itself contained the Court’s holding? Today’s judgment surely fails that test. At the Constitutional Convention of 1787, the delegates contended with “the jealousy of the states with regard to their sovereignty.”

...

Now [ he’s still speaking of the original Constitutional Convention of 1787 ], imagine a provision— perhaps inserted right after Art. I, §8, cl. 4, the Naturalization Clause—which included among the enumerated powers of Congress “To establish Limitations upon Immigration that will be exclusive and that will be enforced only to the extent the President deems appropriate.” The delegates to the Grand Convention would have rushed to the exits.

Because they would know that so wobbly and devious a clause would be a cloak for tyranny. And Alito knows it too. My hero.

Yeah, Rush has more.

Not Today

No SCOTUS decision on ObamaCare today.

However, they did issue a decision that youths may not be sentenced to life without parole, and they also struck down most of Arizona’s Illegal Immigrants law. Checking immigration status during routine stops will be reviewed by a lower court, so who knows where that’s going. The rest of the law: shot down.

The Supreme Court on Monday struck down much of Arizona’s controversial immigration law, but it upheld for now a key provision that requires police officers to check the immigration status of those they suspect may be in the country illegally.

The provision on mandatory checks during routine stops will now kick back to a lower court for review and still could still be subject to challenge. The rest of the ruling, though, definitively strikes down three other provisions in the Arizona law.

Those provisions had made it a crime for immigrants to seek employment without work permits and to not carry their immigration papers, and they had allowed police to arrest anyone they suspect committed a deportable offense. Without the latter provision, the requirement to conduct routine immigration checks has little enforcement power behind it.

The court was unanimous in allowing the immigration checks to go forward, but divided on the rest.

“Arizona may have understandable frustrations with the problems caused by illegal immigration while that process continues, but the State may not pursue policies that undermine federal law,” Kennedy wrote. The justice also noted that “discretion in the enforcement of immigration law embraces immediate human concerns,” and also “involve(s) policy choices that bear on this Nation’s international relations.”

He added: “The pervasiveness of federal regulation does not diminish the importance of immigration policy to the States. Arizona bears many of the consequences of unlawful immigration.”

The Supreme Court is currently wrapping up its term. The public is still awaiting a landmark decision on the federal health care overhaul, which is expected to be released on Thursday.

I guess I’ll have to change the page header up top here.

a bit of a change but don’t get used to it. the world’s still a mess. she isn’t though.

How bout this for a change of pace?

I suppose you could call it eye candy.  She’s pretty.
Not sure though how Mrs. Galaxy gets to be Miss Galaxy. ??


Undercover cop enters beauty contest for a laugh… and wins

Former police officer infiltrated drugs gangs and snared paedophiles during her 10 years serving in the force

image

But that was then.

This is now.

image

in a case of life imitating art, a former undercover police officer has inadvertently mimicked the character played by Sandra Bullock on the big screen - when she entered a beauty pageant for fun and ended up winning the contest.

Real-life Miss Congeniality Robyn Morrison infiltrated drug gangs and snared paedophiles during her 10 years in the Australian police force.

Robyn, a mother-of-two who now runs a cheerleading school, said: ‘I couldn’t believe it when I won the pageant.

‘I was a bit unsure about entering - I am a mum.

‘But I thought what the hell and did it for a bit of fun and bought my dress for £50 from TK Max and bikini from Next.

Robyn first worked as a bobby on the beat when she joined the police aged 18 after studying dance and drama at school.

But after a few years she became an undercover cop in Cabramatta, an area in Sydney which is notoriously dangerous and run by Vietnamese gangs.

Acting the part was not a problem for Robyn, who played policewoman Terri Hall in the soap Neighbours for two years.

image

During her time as an undercover officer Robyn, who is originally from Australia but has lived in the UK for the last six years, posed as a ‘junkie’ and had to socialise with drug dealers, prostitutes and pimps.

She even had her two front teeth knocked out when she got into a fight after officers who didn’t know she was undercover stopped her as she tried to buy heroin with other users.

Robyn, who is married to Bradford Bulls star Glen Morrison, added: ‘I’m proud of my police background - I worked tirelessly for years trying to keep the streets safe and drug free.

‘I’ve got some really horrible stories but it doesn’t haunt me. It has not traumatised me. I don’t regret doing it.’

After a year of working undercover, Robyn was moved to an anti-theft unit before she went to work in child protection, dealing with paedophiles.

She competed in the Miss Galaxy contest six weeks ago in Cheshire and won a holiday to Florida.

She also won a host of other awards, including best swimwear, best fashion, most photogenic and best smile.

She will travel to America to represent the UK in Miss Galaxy next month.

ARAB SPRING OR IS IT WINTER?

Drew has already said it well and so too has Michael Burleigh, writing today in the Daily Mail.

It’s highly doubtful that any of our regulars here at BMEWS are surprised.  But isn’t this what the west wanted when they deserted Mubarak?  Democracy and free elections.  Actually, I’m not clear on what they all wanted except for peace with Israel in their area of control.  I doubt there’s going to be much in the way of democracy.

Anyway, the two tearful ladies here are surely not pleased with the election result.  Might be lots of women in Egypt at this very moment are worried and also not pleased. And who can blame them?


Is Arab spring turning into Arab winter?

By MICHAEL BURLEIGH

This is a victory which will send shock waves throughout the Middle East, emboldening Islamic radicals from Bahrain to Syria to persist in their efforts to topple their regimes, and confirming the Israeli view that the Arab Spring has become an Arab Winter.

Mohammed Morsi, Egypt’s new president, is the Arab world’s first elected Islamist head of state. He now rules a nation of 81million people. While there is rejoicing among hardline Hamas supporters in Gaza tonight, Egyptian liberals and secularists will be bitterly disappointed, especially since it was they, rather than the Muslim Brotherhood, who toppled Hosni Mubarak.

The wealthy cosmopolitan middle-classes will be shuddering inside their villas in Cairo’s rich Heliopolis suburb.
image

Although optimists hope that Egypt will evolve along the lines of Turkey, which has a moderate Islamic government, the reality is that it is likely to see protracted strife between a still-powerful military – which has until now held all the power – and a strong Islamist movement that will make it more like strife-torn Pakistan.

The army have a lot to lose, while the Brotherhood has everything to gain.

Morsi’s background is typical of the middle class, academic professionals who dominate the Brotherhood’s leadership. He has a doctorate in engineering from the University of Southern California, and worked at Egypt’s Zagazig University. But he is leader in name only, which is why he is known as the ‘spare tyre’. He only ran for president after the ruling Supreme Council of the Army disqualified 62-year-old businessman Khariat Al Shater, the real strategic mind within the Brotherhood.

Al Shater has been in prison four times. He and Morsi represent the conservative strain of the Brotherhood, and rule out women and Christians ever standing as president. They want Egypt to be run along the lines of Saudi Arabia, where women are covered from head to toe and banned from driving, alcohol is forbidden and sharia law is commonplace. The wives of these two men wear the niqab, which covers the face and is unusual in Egypt – except in areas where the Brotherhood’s huge charitable involvement acts like a chill draught in a room.

The military, which thanks to its vast grants from the US still retains considerable power in Egypt, has made a deal with the Brotherhood drastically reducing the new president’s untested powers.

In a sense both sides have been engaged in a game of chicken. The Brotherhood has been using its supporters to flood Tahrir Square and threatening to unleash its trades unions to paralyse an Egyptian economy already limping along because of the collapse of mass tourism.

The generals – who could always fill the streets with troops – have issued a decree which restricts what president Morsi can do.

Morsi has no power over budgets, internal affairs or the army, in a country where the defence budget is 40 per cent of revenue. He may chair a new National Defence Council, but 11 of its 16 members will be serving generals.

But while the army holds many cards, the military’s commercial and industrial interests make it highly vulnerable to charges of institutional corruption of the sort that saw the ousting of Mubarak, himself a former air force general.

Since Mubarak went, relations with Israel have become far chillier. Morsi is a fervent supporter of Israel’s enemy Hamas, the Egyptians have cut off deliveries of natural gas to Israel, and they’ve opened the Sinai border to waves of African migrants who are causing serious law and order problems for the citizens of Tel Aviv.

The world can only watch and wait to see if Israel reacts – and how this uneasy partnership between the generals and the Brotherhood plays out. Many will be fearful, however, if in time the Islamists gain the upper hand.

Arab Spring My Arse

image

puppet and strawman at the same time?

Muslim Brotherhood Wins Egyptian Presidency

Gee, who saw this one coming? Totally unexpected!!

Muslim Brotherhood candidate and president-elect in victory speech vows to unite the country and stand up for democracy. [as my BS-meter pegs at 11]

The Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohamed Morsi has officially won Egypt’s presidential election and will be the country’s next president, the electoral commission has announced.

Morsi picked up 13.2 million votes out of just over 26 million, giving him about 51 per cent of the vote. His competitor, Ahmed Shafik, the final prime minister under Hosni Mubarak, received 12.3 million. More than 800,000 ballots were invalidated.

How about that? They threw out just enough ballots to make their guy win. Totally unexpected!!

Morsi’s victory caps off more than a week of behind-the-scenes negotiations between the Brotherhood and the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF). He claimed victory just hours after last week’s runoff election, based on unofficial numbers tallied by the Brotherhood, but the commission delayed its official announcement until Sunday.

In the intervening days, Khairat al-Shater, the Brotherhood’s political boss, met generals from SCAF at least once. Sources say they were negotiating exactly what powers the president will have.

So wait ... this means that the army is still in charge, doesn’t it? Negotiate to see what powers the president will have? Sounds like a puppet figurehead to me.  Totally unexpected!!

Yeah, and in theory this guy has quit the Muslim Brotherhood and given up his membership in several of their more extreme (!!!) sub-groups. Right. And the Copts are just super happy to have him in charge, I’m sure.

Bishop Pachomius, the caretaker pope of Egypt’s Coptic Church, issued a short statement congratulating Morsi. The Coptic community makes up about 10 per cent of Egypt’s population, and some were worried by Morsi’s candidacy, fearing that his government would restrict their personal freedoms.


Nahh. Not to worry. As long as they remain proper dhimmis, they’ll have as many freedoms as any other third class citizens, like women and arthritic donkeys. Just so long as they don’t step out of line, like by objecting to having their churches burned and their priests murdered.

Gosh, I hope I didn’t make my lowered expectations about this election too blatant. After all, this son-of-a-terrorist-group is all about supporting democracy, as long as the army allows him to. Welcome to the New Spring!

un migration head says eu countries should be forced to accept multiculture

OK, I’ll be brief as possible.

Wish I’d seen this article in time to post the comment by NewJerseyYankee along with it.
Whatever ... my post below by NJY still ties in well. This article may not be on the exact same subject matter, but as you can see, the thinking is the same and by the same pc kind of ppl.

Take a look.

UN migration chief calls on EU to force member states to be multicultural as he says Britain’s quota ‘not legal’

By Daily Mail Reporter

The EU should make sure that its member states are multicultural to ensure the prosperity of the union, the UN’s special representative for migration has said.

Peter Sutherland also suggested the UK government’s immigration policy had no basis in international law.

He was being questioned by the Lords EU home affairs sub-committee which is investigating global migration.

Mr Sutherland, who is non-executive chairman of Goldman Sachs International and a former chairman of oil giant BP, heads the Global Forum on Migration and Development, which brings together representatives of 160 nations to share policy ideas.

He told the House of Lords committee migration was a ‘crucial dynamic for economic growth’ in some EU nations ‘however difficult it may be to explain this to the citizens of those states’.

He said that an ageing or declining native population in countries like Germany or southern EU states was the ‘key argument and, I hesitate to the use word because people have attacked it, for the development of multicultural states’.

‘It’s impossible to consider that the degree of homogeneity which is implied by the other argument can survive because states have to become more open states, in terms of the people who inhabit them. Just as the United Kingdom has demonstrated.’

In evidence to the Lords committee, he urged EU member states to work together more closely on migration policy.

He criticised the UK’s attempt to cut net migration from its current level to ‘tens of thousands’ a year through visa restrictions.

Here are a few comments from readers at the Mail On Line.  So far there are only 83 but I expect hundreds in a few hours. It touches a nerve.
It is true the native populations are getting older and the birthrate is and has been low for some time.  Except in the UK amongst those collecting more in benefits per child then can be made working for a living. But that’s just an aside. 
The kind of people generally migrating invading Europe and the UK, are not in the main, the same sort of people who in the past so easily integrated in, and helped make through their honest endeavors a better place then they found it.  That is NOT to denigrate the many honest and hard working migrants who have settled here and learned the language and raised their offspring to be lawful citizens.  We tend to hear about the bad ones because lets face it.  If it bleeds, it leads.

tell mr sutherland to take them to his home country

- m. martin, davod hungary,

When I was a child in Brierfield it was a close working community of native Lancashire people. Starting in the fifties the local cotton mill owners started encouraging people from (East & West) Pakistan to come over to work in the mills and undercut the wages paid to local Lancashire girls. Street by street the waves of immigrants took over the town. The locals and immigrants do not mix. The town is dominated by a large mosque and I no longer feel at home in my hometown. Peter Sutherland’s views (like the mill-owners of yesteryear) are just plain wrong.

- Nelly, Brierfield,

ANY CHANCE OF SECTIONING THIS IDIOT ?

- SARSFIELDS GHOST, LONDON,

Continued never-ending “economic growth” is as un-sustainable as the multi-culti societies these fascists insist that we establish. It simply makes a very few wealthier at the expense of the happiness and contentment of the many. This planet has finite resources and an increasing human population. You do not solve this problem by de-stabilising communities with settled populations (like the UK) with increased immigration from unstable third world countries. You solve this problem by reducing population in those third world countries to settled levels so that they too can become stable. This is not rocket science and is blindingly obvious. A failure to grasp this is not indicative of stupidity it is indicative of someone with an agenda that has little to do with the happiness of the many.

- Attila, Dundee,

europe is toast … and the left in america is leading us down the same road

I had no idea I would be making a post of a comment made here at BMEWS by our friend below.  I thought I was working on something else when I checked comments this morning.

It’s very interesting how we all differ in our expression on a subject we are all agreed on.
Anyway, NJY has really said it well and in fewer words then I often use.  Wish I had that knack but since I don’t, no worry.
I’ll borrow his.

Europe is screwed. It’s gonna be an Islamic paradise before the middle of the century.

That’s because the Europeans allowed it. Many believe they are being “multicultural” heroes. The rest haven’t the time or courage to oppose the tide.

The Europeans who opposed the Islamic culture were afraid of the naive idiots who pushed the Political Correct agenda.

America is going down the same road, albeit a little slower. Actually, I see the need to allow the legalization of the Mexican “illegals”. At least they’re not Muslim and will help dilute the raghead tsunami which is currently ghettoising many major U.S. Cities.

Just wait. It’s gonna get worse and I only hope the Muslims behead the Liberal, Socialist butt lickers first so I can watch and get some serious Schadenfreude before it’s my turn.

June 1st … Belgium.  Muslim scum attack police and riot.

A few days ago while checking emails, but just before the YHOO sign in page, there was a small news blurb about some muslims attacking the police in Belgium.
I made a mental note to go back and see what that was all about, had a lot of mail and answered much and then lost track of things. The same day that I posted that story about the art I admired, I also shared the info and pix with some friends and then remembered the muslim/police thing.
I didn’t see anything on line in my usual places, and nothing on the BBC, so I asked a friend in Belgium what was happening there and that I had read something but wasn’t clear on what I’d seen. It was just a quick scan on my part and I just caught the words, muslims attack police.

Please NOTE that this story is not new.  I’m only now aware of what happened. The story dates from June 1st. But as far as I’m concerned, it’s today’s news simply because it’s the same old same old with these lice infested, scummy and miserable bastards. The west is destroying itself by using the usual civilized police methods, on an uncivilized and barely human life form.  They are nothing more then vile insects who push and push and the host countries treat them as though they are actually real humans. They aren’t and should never be thought of or treated as such. They should each and every one be deleted! Otherwise, the west may as well bend over and kiss its collective ass good bye.

Here was the brief exchange between myself and friend in Belgium, which got me looking for the link(s) I found.

Hi Pat. Thought you’d enjoy seeing this even if it isn’t related to music.
We have seen a news item here with regard to muslims attacking your policemen over some slight or other in Belgium. ???  It wasn’t on BBC news and so wondered what was happening in your part of the world. 
Hope all well.
Cheers
J

Hi Jay,

Indeed, although the Muslim community in this country always is rather hostile towards the authorities, that was really a case over the top, many days of riots because two police officers tried to check the identity a Muslim woman wearing niqab (apparel not allowed in my country for security reasons). The police officers were seriously hurt themselves by this aggressive woman who smashed the face of the female officer.  All this led to the massive riots. The Muslim community seems to overlook there are limits to acceptable behavior, freedom ends where that of one’s neighbor’s starts… In general the authorities in this country even already tend to be more forgiving and in my eyes laxist towards the this community, espicifically in order to avoid riots as much as possible. I think in general they should be stricter and tend towards zero tolerance when it comes to public order.  But of course when I’m saying that, I am practically considered a racist whereas obviously that’s rubbish. It’s not about racism but about vandalism and violence being intolerable, disregarding ethnicity.
Pat

Well, now I’m really curious because BBC radio and their world service would surely be on this. Several days of riots?
I didn’t see anything in our papers about that.  So I Googled muslims attack police in Belgium and there were links including that new site I found recently. So I’ll use it again, and with thanks I’ll tip the hat to barenakedislam.com.  Click the hat for everything plus other stories.

image

Two policemen were injured and eight people arrested in the riots recorded last night following the arrest of a woman who refused to remove the niqab during a control of identification in a suburb of Brussels, the French-speaking RTBF television reported. Burqas and niqabs (full face veils) have been banned in Belgium since 2011. But, as usual, Muslims think they are above the law.
Delta(H/T Maria) In Moelenbeek, Brussels, police stopped a Muslim woman in a full-face covering veil for an ID check. She refused to show her face, so they escorted her to the police station, where she again refused to comply with their demand that she show her face. The woman, described as a 25-year-old convert to Islam who had already been booked many times for similar offences, was extremely aggressive. She struck several of the police officers, breaking the nose and knocking out 2 teeth of one policewoman, and injuring another, both of whom required hospital treatment.

Meanwhile, a Muslim mob had been quickly summoned by mobile phone, where messages spread the news that the woman had received a beating in police station causing the attempted assault of the police enclosure for up to 150 people. They surrounded the police station, throwing objects at the police. Anti-riot units had to deploy.

The Socialist mayor of the area, Philippe Moureaux, has blamed the group Sharia4Belgium for the incident. He has issued a decree banning any gathering of more than 5 people in the district in case the mob returns tonight. Eight people were arrested during the clashes, which ended at midnight. Security has been increased this morning around the police station with additional agents.

cleaned cases left to drip dry after another range session




John Jay over at Summer Patriot, Winter Soldier is still going strong with his “jj’s Brit™” his modernized rendition of the old 280/30 British cartridge. I had a small hand in helping design the round, but he’s done all the yeoman’s work and gets to enjoy the benefits. The little cartridge continues to shoot sub-MOA groups (2 1/4” at 300 yards), and is nearly as powerful as the much larger 7-08 cartridge. All in all, we developed a superb upgrade for the AR platform, a perfect solution to the “poodle shooter” problem 5.56 NATO. All it needs is a rifle with a bolt face big enough to take the standard 0.473” case head. From a short 20” barrel, he’s getting 2700fps and then some with a 130 grain bullet, and doing it at fairly low pressure. Which means he could go faster, but why bother when this is more than good enough already? The idea was for low recoil and moderate power, and he’s got that in spades. And the little bugger is plenty accurate, which is always a good thing.

Nice work JJ.

flying the EU flag

The temptation is to file this under humor. But I’m guessing it isn’t so funny to some Brits.
I kinda doubt our Lyndon here would see the humor in it.

What it boils down to is the demand made by an EU dept. to fly their flag here under penalty of a fine.
Ah, I guess it really isn’t funny at all.  Except I have to say, Mr. Pickles. Now that does tickle the funny bone. Bet he had a difficult time as a kid with a name like Pickles.

It’s only for a week each year but, Europe Day?  There’s now a Europe Day?  Yeah. May 9.  I wonder why they didn’t decide that it should be May Day.
Seems more in keeping with EU attitudes and demands.  Europe Day. Do ya suppose they’ve got the kiddies on side for that yet? 

Take a look.


Brussels offers to buy Britain a flag pole to force Eric Pickles’ Government department to fly EU flag

By MAIL ON SUNDAY REPORTER

A row over the Government being forced to fly the European Union flag took a farcical turn last night after Brussels offered to pay for a new flagpole if it complied with the demand.

The Mail on Sunday revealed earlier this year that Local Government Secretary Eric Pickles was furious after being told that he faced being fined under new European Commission rules if he did not fly the EU flag continuously outside his office.

His headquarters currently has two flagpoles: one permanently bears the Union Flag while the other has been used mainly to display British regional emblems.

The Cabinet Minister said the demand showed a ‘deep sense of political insecurity’ and called on the European Union to ‘grow up’.

Mr Pickles is currently obliged to fly the flag – a circle of 12 golden stars on an azure background – for a week each year, starting from Europe Day on May 9.

But under the proposed change, drafted by the European Commission and due to take effect within the next two years, the flag would have to fly permanently outside any organisation which managed development funding from Brussels.

Mr Pickles wrote to the European Commissioner for Regional Policy, Austrian Johannes Hahn, to protest about the demand to use it to fly the EU flag.

In his reply Mr Hahn replied: ‘I thought flying the [EU] flag all the year round would be a great pleasure for you.

‘In that respect, I would finance a third flagpole’.

Last night Tory MP Chris Heaton Harris said: ‘With the euro in meltdown, I would suggest that the EU had more to worry about than what flag flies over Eric Pickles’s department.’

Development funding from Brussels.
But doesn’t Brussels get the money (originally) from London anyway?  Via the UK taxpayer.

we’ll fight them on the beaches? with what?  human rights laws?

During the last war, the Germans never stood a chance of a successful invasion of this country.  But look what’s happened since then. Powers that be have since those times, invited another sort of invader to these shores.  Mores the pity, cos thanks to rules decided on outside this country,

Brits can no longer fight them on the beaches.

The more time passes the more discouraging it becomes.  Day after day we read the future, or what looks like might be the future, of not just the UK. But Europe as well and eventually, dare I say it out loud?  Possibly the USA as well. And that depends a lot on how well and smart we’re able to handle the left and their hand maidens.  Things as described haven’t happened that I’m aware of in the US. Thankfully. But the same sort of people and the same mind set does exist there.


QC who defended hate preacher Abu Qatada is favourite to be Britain’s new judge in Human Rights Court

By JONATHAN PETRE

A lawyer who has defended terror suspects including radical Islamic cleric Abu Qatada is in line to become Britain’s next judge at the controversial European Court of Human Rights.

Ben Emmerson QC is seen as the strongest candidate on a Government shortlist of three for the nine-year, £150,000 tax-free post at the Strasbourg court. The Council of Europe is due to decide on Tuesday.

But his likely appointment has alarmed Tory MPs, angered by recent court rulings that have overturned Government policy on issues such as the right of prisoners to vote.

They fear Mr Emmerson, 48, a founder of Matrix Chambers where Cherie Blair is a member, is too strong an advocate of human rights to back the Government on issues such as the deportation of terror suspects.

One legal expert said: ‘There are some Tory MPs who think Ben Emmerson is just too Left-wing. They want someone who is more conservative, who they think will be more sympathetic to Britain’s position in cases that are brought against this country.

‘They would also like someone who will push for reforms to curb the powers of the court.’

Mr Emmerson, whose latest known address is a £2 million Georgian house in Highgate, North London, helped draft the 1998 Human Rights Act introduced by Tony Blair which many Tories want to scrap.

Tory MP Priti Patel said she was ‘highly alarmed’ Mr Emmerson had emerged as the front-runner to replace Britain’s current judge Sir Nicholas Bratza.

She said: ‘He has made a name for himself through using human rights legislation to defend terror suspects. How can that be in the interests of our nation? We can’t have a situation where Britain’s next human rights judge is not backing this country’s interests? It is time we had the right kind of individual who is going to actually respect the will of Parliament.

Earlier this year the ECHR ruled that Abu Qatada, who Mr Emmerson represented at several hearings, could not be deported for fear that he would not get a fair trial in Jordan. It also ruled that he could not be detained indefinitely without trial and he was released on bail. Even more controversial was the court’s ruling that prisoners should be given the right to vote, a move David Cameron said made him feel physically sick.

And if that isn’t bad news for our side ..... try this on for size. 


Taliban soldier who killed in battle wins fight to stay in UK - to spare him from persecution by… the Taliban

By ANDY WHELAN

An Afghan Muslim who claims he killed people while fighting for the Taliban has used the Human Rights Act to remain in Britain – despite Government efforts to deport him.
Zareen Ahmadzai, who spent three years fighting in Afghanistan, has admitted using a Kalashnikov rifle and firing rockets, as well as supplying weapons and food to the Taliban.
The Home Office rejected his claim for asylum, and when his appeal also failed, Ahmadzai was detained at Harmondsworth immigration removal centre in West London while awaiting deportation.

Yet when the 30-year-old – who initially did not speak English – mounted a fresh appeal, he was able to overturn the Home Office’s case on the grounds that his life would be at risk if he returned home.

The decision is another setback for Home Secretary Theresa May, who is under pressure to reform human rights laws following a series of high-profile cases in which Muslim extremists have avoided deportation.
Ahmadzai arrived in Britain illegally in May 2010 after travelling from Afghanistan in lorries.

Two days later he was arrested at an address in Wolverhampton and claimed asylum. When the Home Office ordered he be deported, he appealed to the immigration court.

Although a judge rejected his appeal, Ahmadzai took his case to the Upper Tribunal Immigration and Asylum Chamber.

The tribunal heard Ahmadzai joined the Taliban after his father, who was a commander in Helmand province, was shot dead by US soldiers during a battle. He said that he killed people during his fighting with the Taliban as well as supplying the group with weapons, water and food.

Home Secretary Theresa May is under pressure to reform human rights laws following a series of high-profile cases in which Muslim extremists have avoided deportation

The court ruling said: ‘He believed that he was advancing the cause of Islam. He said that his father was shot during fighting against the Americans.

Ahmadzai claims that when he tried to leave the Taliban after he realised innocent people were being killed, he was taken to a mountain and tortured.
He alleges that shortly afterwards he fled the country but cannot return because his life would be in danger from both the Taliban and the Afghan National Security Forces, who oppose the Islamic extremist group.

And if there a language barrier you can bet your boots he’ll be on benefits and will soon bring over the entire family. Who will also qualify for help.

Things just do not look bright.
