some borders are closing to migrant maggots.  but it’s too little too late

A couple of headlines, two of many and the hope among some of us that this could trigger the end of the EU.
Then reality shows itself and most of us know that ain’t gonna happen.  There’s trillions and kazillians of pounds and dollars and jobs for the fat cats who have perks that none of you would believe exist.  I don’t care how crooked some may think American politics has become, trust me.  We have nothing on the Europeans. They were after all, doing business centuries before we were.

Migrant crisis: European Council president Tusk warns Schengen on brink of collapse - latest news

The Schengen area, which allows free movement, is under threat as Sweden reintroduces border controls and Slovenia builds razor-wire fence

Summary of events
• Donald Tusk, European Council president, says Schengen is in a race against time
• EU and African leaders meet in Valletta, Malta, to discuss migration crisis
• Slovenia starts building razor-wire fence as Sweden imposes border controls

Work started today in the migrant camp known as the “Jungle” near the northern French port of Calais to build improved accommodation for 1,500 people, according to AFP journalists at the scene.

Bulldozers started flattening a sprawling area of four hectares (nearly 10 acres) within the camp, where 125 containers will provide more permanent, heated shelters for families.

Around 500 people were moved to a temporary zone with 10-man tents provided by French authorities for the first phase of the construction.

“These people will live in better conditions and will be priorities to move on to the more permanent camp,” said Stephane Duval, from a local NGO overseeing the project.

TELEGRAPH FOR THE REST

While all this is happening and (which of course is a bit too late, the vermin are here and more are coming anyway) I was listening to news last night and some African leader whose name I can’t pronounce and if I could, I’d never be able to spell it, was most critical of European leadership, saying that Europe should not be closing it’s borders, and people had a right to migrate.  I believe I did mention a few days ago, those folks really believe they have a right to your country. All of it.

The measures being taken now are in no way to be taken as anti immigration.  Europe will welcome the maggots but they need time to make accommodations and set up registration centers etc.  They now find they can’t handle the numbers and can not account for thousands who have already made it in, illegally.  But it isn’t fast enough for the migrant scum who bitch and moan about not enough being done for them.

Then there are lefty hand wringers like that actor with the stupid name.  Cummerbund or ..?  Oh right.  Cumberbatch. 
Benedict Cumberbatch

How did he ever make it with a name like that?  How did anyone take him seriously?  But they did. Anyway, he’s all hot and bothered because the govt. here isn’t doing enough, like he has access so info to make that statement. And he is one of many other useful idiots who believe this island has room for more than the number the PM says will be allowed.  Never mind the hundreds of thousands of them who are already here and settled.
But that isn’t enough for our tender hearted libtard.

The insect swarm is predicted to number three million next year.

Migrant Maggots riot in Calais …

These savages really do believe they have some kind of natural right to invade and demand things of Europe and the UK.  And unfortunately, there are a number of hand wringing bed wetting stupid white ppl who go along with that.

Meanwhile, a court has called for “immediate action to prevent serious human rights violations”.
Hey … what about the rights of the native citizens who find their villages and cities over run by vermin.  For example,

Now aid groups also want to see the number of meals available increased from 2500 a day to 6000, and it wants more empty houses in the Calais area handed over to migrants.

How about the keys to the city?  Oh right. They apparently have those already. 

Not mentioned in this article.  This camp and it isn’t unique to them, have markets and various business interests with stalls and .. of course the obligatory mosque.  They are settling in, but all of the maggots want to be here. 

Take a look.


French police fear escalation in violence in Calais after 26 officers injured by rocks hurled by migrants during riots

· Several hundred migrants staying on the coast rioted in Calais last night
· 26 police officers were injured by rocks thrown by the refugees
· Trouble began when they tried to block traffic on the main road into Calais
· Riot police used 300 tear gas canisters to quell the chaos
By Peter Allen In Calais
26 police officers were injured during a riot at the ‘Jungle’ refugee camp in Calais today as they used 300 tear gas canisters against UK-bound migrants.
Hundreds of mainly young men went on the rampage on roads next to the sprawling settlement in the port town.
The riot comes just a week after the French government was ordered to improve conditions in the refugee camp, where the majority of those seeking asylum in Britain are staying.

‘The trouble started at around 11pm on Sunday evening,’ said a spokesman for the Pas de Calais prefecture. ‘Around two hundred people tried to slow down or block traffic on the road leading into Calais.’

This is a common tactic employed by the refugees, as they try and get on board lorries heading towards ferries or the Channel Tunnel.

The spokesman added: ‘These attempts went on until around one in the morning, meaning a security detachment had to deployed, and then the migrants started throwing objects at them.’

Tear gas and baton charges were used to contain the riot, with police injured by rocks and other projectiles.

One officer at the scene said 300 tear gas canisters had to be used by CRS riot squads to try and dispel the rioters.
He said ‘sixteen officers were treated for light injuries at the scene of the violence.’

Gilles Debove, of the SGP Police-Force Ouvriere union in Calais, told The Daily Telegraph: ‘It’s the first time that it’s been this violent and that we’ve unfortunately had so many colleagues injured.

‘We’re worried that if one day we have a revolt inside the camp, it will be pandemonium.’
There are currently some 6,000 refugees sleeping rough in the Pas de Calais area as they wait for their chance to get to Britain, where they will claim asylum or disappear into the black economy.

Last week the French government was ordered to improve conditions in ‘The Jungle’, where the majority of them are staying.

Judges in Lille ruled that its current state was not good enough, and thousands of pounds worth of work was needed.
This has increased fears that the camp is becoming institutionalised, and so becoming a magnet for vastly increased numbers from all over the world.

Fights are now a regular occurrence as different groups of migrants fight over routes into Britain, while people smugglers also prey on those living in the camp.

An administrative court in Lille called for immediate action to prevent ‘serious human rights violations’ highlighted by a number of humanitarian groups, including Catholic Relief Services and Doctors of the World.

Now aid groups also want to see the number of meals available increased from 2500 a day to 6000, and it wants more empty houses in the Calais area handed over to migrants.

Those living in the camp make daily attempts to get to England, either by hiding in the back of lorries boarding ferries, or breaking into the Channel Tunnel and getting aboard a train.

The Calais authorities, including mayor Natacha Bouchart, have long argued that Britain’s generous benefits system is one of the main reasons why so many want to travel there.

Ms Bourchart has called on the British to cut down on abuse, so as to prevent her town being used as a staging post to get into the UK.

into the wet

Spent the late morning out delivering salt buckets, driving the van around from condo building to condo building. Every bucket half full of calcite, with a clean scoop at the top, and an easy to unscrew waterproof lid.  Because Winter is coming. 209 buckets. Everything here is on the grand scale, just because the condo park is so large. Needless to say, we’ve got a few left over to do tomorrow. And maybe the day after that as well. Now it’s time for lunch and time to play with my kitteh.

For those useful idiots that didn’t think this wasn’t the goal all along

"This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the industrial revolution.”

http://www.unric.org/en/latest-un-buzz/29623-figueres-first-time-the-world-economy-is-transformed-intentionally

[ Drew adds a few snippets of text -

The Top UN Climate Change Official is optimistic that a new international treaty will be adopted at Paris Climate Change conference at the end of the year. However the official, Christiana Figueres, the Executive Secretary of UNFCCC, warns that the fight against climate change is a process and that the necessary transformation of the world economy will not be decided at one conference or in one agreement.

“This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model, for the first time in human history”, Ms Figueres stated at a press conference in Brussels.
...
Figueres, however, pointed out that the legal treaty is only one of four important parts of the process. In addition to the treaty, there are the current Climate Change actions from now and until 2020, the financing packages and the so-called Intended National Determined Contributions (INDCs).  These are the actions that countries intend to take under a global agreement from 2020 and have to be publicly outlined before the start of the conference. It is expected that all major economies will deliver their plans in time: the US, China, and the European Union have already shown their cards.

Maximum level of ambition

Ms Figueres went on to say that the sum total of the national contributions are not expected to be enough to limit the increase of world temperature to 2ºC.

]

[ and an observation -

Put bluntly, what the UN is talking about is One World Government. International United Socialism. Using Climate Change as the excuse. Because only a globally empowered government will be able to impart and control this level of change. Which they HOPE, but really actually doubt, will be enough. Which tells you right there that it’s all bullshit, and this is just the greatest and easiest power play that ever was, because so many people really are that fucking stupid.

Excellent link my friend. Good find.

gonna need a bigger sky

Fwooosh. Fwoosh. Fwwoooshh. They got me again.

Remember that scene in Jaws where the Sheriff is ladling out the chum, grousing away, and the shark rises right up behind him, and in shock he backs into the cabin and tells Quint, “We’re gonna need a bigger boat.”? Seems like something similar happened to me this afternoon.

I was out on the deck enjoying the late crisp afternoon air, nursing a smallish glass of Jamison Black Barrel to soothe my tired arms after digging for several hours in the garden, when I heard that old familiar sound. Fwoosh. Fwoosh. The sound of hot air balloons. So I’m looking up, trying to see through the trees here in our little piece of “friggin’ jungle”, and finally I spot one. It’s a big yellow job, with some kind of Navajo-ish cubist graphic on the side. A thunderbird or similar. It’s at a decent altitude, up there in the bright and gleaming in the late afternoon sun, while I’m in the shadows beneath the trees. “Gosh” I’m thinking, “the sound of those burners really carries a long distance!”. And it does. And then I hear FWWOOOSH FWWWOOOOOSSSSSHH really loud, snap my head around, and there’s a giant multi-colored balloon right the heck in front of me. Not 30 feet away, it had sunk down almost to the roadway behind us here, just the other side of our little cliffy culvert of trees. We’re gonna need a bigger sky!!

“Ach, crivens!” I said (yes, I really did. One of the perils of being alone so much) and ran in to grab the camera. And then ran back to close the door so the kitten couldn’t escape. Then ran downstairs because the camera wasn’t where I’ve been leaving it. Right. Grab the snapper and run back out, and the gas bag has gained a small bounce of altitude and 50 yards of travel, and is landing in the front lawn of the house across the street.

image

That’s the view from my porch. It took me a few tries to get the balloon in the picture; not that it was so big, but that it was actually so hard to see. The sunlight lit the colorful panels so well that they were almost transparent, nearly invisible behind the high contrast clump of branches in the dimness. It was that perfect instant in the day when the sun is just high enough to light the sky but nothing lower than the very tree tops. So the chase van shows up, and I’m watching them bounce the basket around as people climb out, and they have to make several big fiery blasts on the heaters to keep the slowly deflating bag from sagging into the tree branches, and of course the camera is too slow to capture those awesome moments ... and then I hear the familiar sound from above again.

Fwoosh Fwooossssh! And we’ve got a third balloon coming down, this one aiming for the landing spot a couple streets away, behind the condo where we used to live (and where balloons have set down several times over the years)

image

And as that fellow floats down to earth, another observer comes by. Just over the treetops, flying hardly faster than a horse’s gallop, this obviously old-school, fabric covered, bigger than a typical Cessna, high-winger, who circled the situation a few times and then putt-putted away through the sky.

image

I have no idea what kind of airplane this is. Definitely neat looking, and like the second balloon, brilliant in the upper sunshine when seen from the gloaming on the ground. Who’s good with their planes? What is it?

Never a dull moment here in Clinton. Except I’m now out of Jamison. Waily waily waily!!

Germany Wants To Sock Her

Asylum? Nein!  Merkel? Rote Karte!!

image

The anti-mass migration Alternativ für Deutschland (AfD) party held a rally in the German capital Berlin this afternoon, demanding the resignation of Chancellor Angela Merkel and calling for the country to adopt a strong policy on immigration.

The AfD has seen its popularity surge as Germany struggles to deal with the huge influx of migrants, and is currently campaigning in local elections in the Saxony-Anhalt region that will be seen as an indicator of public sentiment on the issue.

German paper Handelsblatt estimates that 5,000 people joined the rally this afternoon, calling for the immediate closure of Germany’s borders and introduction of Visa requirements from migrants from the Balkan states, including Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Montenegro.

Angry demonstrators chanted “Merkel must go” and “traitor to the people” under the banner “Asylum has its limits – red card for Merkel”.

The red card thing is borrowed from soccer (sock her; sack her). At your second major offense you get the red card, which gets you tossed from the game.

So it looks like another populace in Europe is being ignored by it’s own government. Hmmm, that sounds a bit familiar, don’t it?

Rapist not named but brit tax payer foots his cost to travel cos he has ‘rights’

Never mind name the creep.  Britain can’t even (apparently) deport the scum.
It’s the very same old story told yet again, but with a different cast.  The crime the same, the victims all generally the same, and the response of courts is …. same old same old. 
Their legal hands are tied by the agreement EU member states signed up to with regard to human rights.  Nothing said of course about little things like, protecting the public, responsibility, punishment.

Now this brief article is important for me not due to the crime itself.
This is one criminal act among many, but the response dear reader is symptomatic of what I always refer to as, the west’s inability to defend itself.

Whether it’s against mass illegal immigration or crime on the streets,
Britain like the rest of Europe seem helpless against the laws in place that make it near impossible to deport killers and rapists, because they have “Rights” don’t ya know. 

As a citizen, your rights are to absorb the kicks and the stabs and the rapes and everything including fractured eye sockets and even your death. 

I have seen the headline here written a different way more than once but no answers that make sense are forthcoming.

WHY CAN’T WE DEPORT THIS RAPIST/KILLER ?

I found an interesting quote from Piers Morgan a few weeks ago.  It says a lot about how things are done and always have been.  Whether the subject is mass migration or violent crime and punishment, nothing has changed.  He was referring to his once stint as a talent judge on TV.
He said it’s a lot like being Prime Minister. 

The great British public would bring back hanging tomorrow if we let them.
Their collective opinion must be always respected,
but stoically resisted.

the following is from Platell’s People at the Daily Mail

Why can’t we name this rapist asylum seeker? 

By Amanda Platell

On the surface, it’s the kind of everyday tale of human rights lunacy to which we’ve become almost inured.
An Iranian man illegally entered the UK 11 years ago and his asylum request was rejected three months later. He appealed and that, too, was rejected. But he just stayed on.

In September 2009 he was convicted of rape and jailed for five years. Still no attempt to remove him, despite his clear danger to the public. He went on to father a child, was in prison again when the baby was born and separated from its mother shortly afterwards. And still he remained in Britain.


Now a High Court judge has ruled that, under Article 8 of the Human Rights Convention, we must pay his fortnightly travel costs to visit his child, as refusing to do so is a breach of his ‘right to a family life’.

This, of course, in addition to the tens of thousands of pounds he has cost us in legal fees.

But this case raises even more troubling questions. An estimated three million more migrants will reach the EU by the end of next year. Of the 750,000 who have arrived so far this year, half a million have claimed asylum.

And while the numbers are smaller for the UK, there is no doubt that many among this tide of desperation will end up here. It’s a mass migration on an unprecedented scale and cases like the Iranian rapist sap the very compassion out of the British people.

For I fear it is the most deserving and desperate asylum seekers who will suffer the inevitable backlash as pressure on housing and public services mounts.

And if we can’t even remove a rapist who has twice had his claim for asylum rejected, what hope is there?
Cases like this shake our confidence in a system that is clearly failing.

Look at the figures. Of the 314,000 asylum seekers whose applications were rejected in the seven years up to 2004, only 75,000 were removed.
Home Secretary Theresa May is making heroic strides trying to tighten the system, but is thwarted at every turn by the courts and the Human Rights Act, something David Cameron vowed to replace.

Perhaps most worrying of all is that we are not even allowed to know the Iranian rapist’s name. In court he was referred to as MG, no doubt to protect him and his child

What about the protection of the British public? Isn’t the whole point of the sex offenders’ register that we should be allowed to know the identity of the monsters in our midst?

Terrifyingly, he is just one of the 400 foreign murderers, rapists and paedophiles to successfully challenge their deportation orders in the past 12 months on human rights grounds.

To cap it all, he is challenging his asylum claim rejection for a third time.

It’s enough to make you want to leave the country.

Who Wants Take Out?

China: World Record Attempt FAIL

Biggest Fried Rice Ever Ruled Inedible, Fed To Pigs

4 Tons of Yung Chow Suk Can’t Be Found




image

Not so fast, Hop Sing



An attempt to make the world’s largest serving of fried rice has left officials in one Chinese city red-faced after criticism that some of the four-tonne portion was used to feed pigs.

Some 300 cooks—including local residents and foreign visitors—took part in the event in the eastern Chinese city of Yangzhou Thursday, churning out 4,192 kilograms (9,241 lbs) of fried rice, the city’s signature dish, according to China’s state news agency China News Service.

The amount of fried rice broke the record set at a culinary event last year in Turkey, where 3,150 kilograms (6,945 lbs) of fried rice was cooked, according to the Guinness World Records.

But Yangzhou officials had little time to celebrate the achievement.

Internet users slammed the event, with local media reports and video footage showing the rice being loaded into trash trucks.

Sharon Yang, the Greater China marketing director for Guinness World Records, said that the organizer had initially provided documentation suggesting that the rice was sent to five companies to be eaten by their staff but the world record attempt had since been disqualified because the dish wasn’t “entirely edible.”

“Following a further review of the evidence, it is now clear that over 150 kilograms of fried rice was not fit for human consumption,” she said. “We will not be able to accept claims for large food items if they prove to be inedible, or if they are prepared in such a way as to make them unfit for general consumption.”

How the hell do you cook rice so as to make it inedible? Especially if you’re a Chinese chef, and cooking rice is all you know how to do??

They’re Not Gonna Take It

Sweden Rises

Unstoppable Uprising Against Islamic Violence And Immigrants

Police Are Powerless

image



Just a few days ago, Ihab and a gang of fellow Eritreans were swaggering all the way into this new land of milk and honey. A land of free living, abundance, liberal laws, and porcelain-skinned blond girls ripe for the picking. How the tables have turned.

“We’re terrified,” the swarthy ingrate meeps. “We take turns to sleep and there’s always someone keeping guard.”

But Ihab and his dusky companions know, it’s all just a matter of time. No, this isn’t fiction. That’s a real person, and the town is Munkedal, a place these migrants thought was safe.

While rural Sweden may not yet be as dangerous in Eritrea, none of these migrants feel as secure as they were told they would be.

Fires are kindling all over Sweden, and there’s precious little the Swedish authorities can do, especially in rural areas. Police all over Sweden are stretched well past their limits thanks to the increased crime brought about by Muslim youths. Even still, after completely ignoring the citizens and their concerns about mass migration, the ‘authorities’ are now trying hard to put an end to this violence which they themselves facilitated.

Firefighters in southern Sweden have doused the flames at yet another temporary facility for refugees and migrants. The fifth in a series of suspected arson attacks in the last two weeks comes despite tight security and secrecy over their locations.

Teams from three fire stations have been deployed to extinguish the blaze at a former retirement home in Oderljunga, being prepared to become a temporary asylum for refugees, The Local reports. The fire alarm at the facility went off at about 2:40 a.m. local time, regional newspaper Sydsvenskan reported.
...
Swedish authorities say that, in view of the suspected arsonists’ tactics, they are keeping secret the exact plans to welcome new groups of asylum seekers for fear of new attacks. However, so far the locations of some centers are apparently being discovered or leaked, with 14 suspected arson attacks on refugee centers in Sweden since the start of the year.

Heat seeking helicopters to protect homes for refugees
More resources have now been allocated to police forces in Sweden with the national operations division (NOA) providing help to combat the attacks on buildings set aside for use as temporary accommodation for refugees. The division will offer personnel, analysts, forensic specialists and staff from its cybercrime centre.

The heat seeking helicopters will assist in surveillance and assist against any potential threat, according to a police press release. They can cover large areas with thermal cameras to search for suspects in the dark, says police commander Jonas Hysing.

“We will focus our helicopters on places in rural areas where we have long call-out times for police patrols on the ground,” he tells TT.

How effective this will be almost impossible to answer, says Hysing.  [SRSLY ... how many choppers they got? Enough to patrol tens of thousands of square miles of rural Sweden? Not even a drop in the bucket]
...
In recent weeks there has been a large spike in suspected arson attacks on asylum centers or buildings to be used as shelter to meet the influx of refugees. Immigration officials estimate some 190,000 asylum-seekers will arrive this year.
...
A planned refugee shelter burned to the ground in Floda, east of Gothenburg, Saturday morning, Swedish Radio’s local channel in Gothenburg reports.

With the breakdown of law and order in Sweden thanks a migrant crime wave, there’s very little the Swedish police will be able to do to stop this. So far, their efforts have not been effective, and so would-be offenders have no reason to be phased by their empty threats. Furthermore, people within the Swedish government appear to be acting in defiance and leaking information about future refugee centers.


Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight

Exit: light
Enter: night
Take my hand
We’re off to never never land

Something’s wrong, shut the light
Heavy thoughts tonight
And they aren’t of Snow White

Dreams of war, dreams of liars
Dreams of dragon’s fire
And of things that will bite

Fake But Inaccurate?

Ben Carson Fibbed About West Point?

Please, you knew it was only a matter of time.

Republican presidential hopeful Ben Carson has been forced to admit that part of central plank in his personal narrative—that the top U.S. general in the Vietnam War had guaranteed him admission and a scholarship to West Point—was fabricated.

In fact, West Point officials, responding to a report published Friday in POLITICO, confirmed that there is no record of Carson ever applying to the elite military academy, much less gaining entrance or a scholarship offer.

But in Carson’s 1996 memoir “Gifted Hands,” he tells a different story: that the young Carson, a 17-year-old top ROTC officer from Detroit, had dined with Gen. William Westmoreland, who was a fresh out of his command in Vietnam, in 1969. He said Westmoreland later offered him a full scholarship. He has said in the retelling of the story that that he turned down the supposed offer because he wanted to be a doctor. He later graduated from Yale University in 1973.

A West Point spokesperson told POLITICO that that it was “certainly possible” that Carson spoke with the general, and the four-star may have even encouraged the teenager to apply, but the school has a rigorous entry process that would not have allowed Westmoreland to guarantee anyone entry. Furthermore, there are no “full scholarships” to the academy.

... then again, maybe not. Put things in civvie speak and the split hairs maybe get a bit thicker ...

Carson’s campaign responded Friday, saying Carson did meet with Westmoreland, and West Point officials told him he could get in based on his high school grades and performance in the ROTC. But in the end, he did not seek the application.

“There are “Service Connected” nominations for stellar High School ROTC appointments,” said campaign manager Barry Bennett. “Again he was the top ROTC student in Detroit.  I would argue strongly that an Appointment is indeed an amazing full scholarship. Having ran several Congressional Offices I am very familiar with the Nomination process.”

“Again though his Senior Commander was in touch with West Point and told Dr. Carson he could get in, Dr. Carson did not seek admission.”

Now watch all the MSM run with this “one of the candidates LIED, OMG, OMG, OMG!!!!” story 24-7.

Hillary? Benghazi? Emails? Clinton Foundation? Whatchu talkin’ ‘bout Willi -

screw you America

Obama Kills Keystone XL Pipeline

President Obama announced Friday that he has rejected Canadian energy giant TransCanada’s application to build the Keystone XL pipeline, saying that the pipeline was not in the U.S. national interest.

“The State Department has decided the Keystone XL pipeline would not serve the interests of the United States. I agree with that decision,” Obama said at a White House press conference.

The announcement caps a 7-year saga that has become one of the biggest environmental flashpoints of Obama’s presidency. It comes just days after the State Department refused to agree to TransCanada’s request to suspend the review process on the controversial project, which has seen enormous opposition from environmental groups.

Killing the pipeline allows Obama to claim aggressive action on the environment. That could strengthen his hand as world leaders prepare to finalize a major global climate pact next month in Paris that Obama hopes will be a crowning jewel for his legacy.

Alberta-based TransCanada first applied for Keystone permits in September 2008—shortly before Obama was elected. As envisioned, Keystone would snake from Canada’s tar sands through Montana, South Dakota and Nebraska, then connect with existing pipelines to carry more than 800,000 barrels of crude oil a day to specialized refineries along the Texas Gulf Coast.

Greenies, Bernie Sanders, and other anti-Americans had their knickers in a twist because the oil was so dirty. But golly, isn’t that what specialized refineries are all about? Tar sand sludge in, fuel, lubricants, and petrochemicals out.

Don’t worry about Canada though. The Red Chinese will only be too happy to buy up every drop if the Canucks can turn the pipeline to the right and run it to the Pacific coast.

Obama. BOHICA.  His environmental policy is just as daft as his foreign and economic policies. GYMFOOYA.

Republicans called the decision disappointing.

“President Obama’s rejection of the Keystone XL Pipeline is a huge mistake, and is the latest reminder that this administration continues to prioritize the demands of radical environmentalists over America’s energy security,” said. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.

migrant demands not met so … they set fire to a few tents and threaten suicide. oh if only.

Interesting video of clash, and the attempt of one invader who was , he would have us believe, in the process of trying to hang himself in protest over their detention.
Soft hearted but totally misguided police stopped the would be hanging. Damn. I was looking forward to that. 

A HANGING WE WILL GO, A HANGING WE WILL GO
feel free to fill in the rest.

Chaos in Cyprus as migrants threaten suicide, burn tents and clash with police as they complain about their treatment after arriving at British military base

· The 114 refugees came ashore at the British Sovereign base on Cyprus last month

· Videos show their growing frustration with staying at the UK base

· One man is shown trying to hang himself, another climbing wire fence

· It is down to Cyprus to handle asylum, but process has only just started

Police armed with Tasers had to quell disturbances involving migrants at a British military camp in Cyprus after tents were set on fire.

Some of the migrants – who are angry they are being forced to remain on the Mediterranean island and want permission to come directly to Britain – likened their detention to Guantanamo Bay.  ‘We are people, not animals,’ one shouted.

NO you filthy lice infested rat bastard.  You are certainly NOT human. You are an unwanted and uninvited plague. An infestation.  A boil on the culture you are trying to infect.  Die soon please.

A line of British police, some carrying Tasers and handcuffs, tried to block the path of one man who scaled a fence at Dhekelia, which is the temporary home of 114 migrants who landed at another UK base on the island, RAF Akrotiri, in two boats a fortnight ago.

The migrants told the Mail that if the UK will not let them in, they should be permitted to go to Greece, their original destination, or another mainland European country.

The migrants, living in a fenced-off camp in Dhekelia, insist they do not want to remain in Cyprus and say they should be brought to the UK as they are on British soil.

Ibrahim Marouf, 37, a Palestinian from Lebanon who was speaking on behalf of the group, urged Prime Minister David Cameron to show humanity.
‘We are in his hands. If he’s a real human, so are we,’ he said. ‘He’s afraid if we go to the UK, others will too. Don’t make a lesson of us.’

Mr Marouf said the two boats had arrived at Akrotiri by accident.
‘We didn’t want to come here. We were going to Greece. None of us wants to be here… we should go to England.
‘We told them we want to go to England, but they told us, “no”. Now we’re in a British prison.’

A video of the disturbances shows British police officers forced to calm an increasingly tense scene as one migrant threatened to hang himself with a makeshift noose made from cotton sheets.

At least five officers are seen forcing their way past other migrants to reach him. Another man is shown bloodied after self-harming.

The base is already home to migrants from a group of 75 refugees who arrived by chance in a ramshackle boat at Akrotiri in 1998.

Seventeen years later, 21 of the original group are still there. With children born there and family members who joined them, they now number about 70.

And just so bmews readers know, that group has been on welfare benefits for most of that time.  Can’t understand why the Brits couldn’t have deported them years ago, if they weren’t going to shoot them.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
