HAL

I came, I saw, I feared the Star People … Damn you Dave Bowman! ….Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer, do,
I’m half crazy all for the love of you.
It won’t be a stylish marriage –
I can’t afford a carriage,
But you’d look sweet upon the seat
Of a bicycle built for two…..

From lifehacker investigating The Common Foods Dogs Can and Can’t Eat … probably something all responsible pet owners should know, but it was the catch tag line of the subject that caught my attention. No mention of oragnges though. I only had to start to peel one and Penny was at my feet drooling.

There is an onward lifehacker link to Foods that are dangerous to dogs, and why.

The weekend Paris-Nice starts and the cobbles and mud of the Northern European Classics are waiting in the wings British cycling has its own mud and $h!t to deal with.
As it has, since it’s squeakier than squeaky clean conception in 2010, SKY and the team are playing the leading roles. One hopes that the misdemeanours of any bad hombres (as the serial liar would say) don’t slur the good guys.

The Guardian reports “Team Sky: Sir Dave Brailsford must face the music – and then resign

The Observer view on doping in cycling  contains the following telling comment :
“Still, it is a stretch to believe that an outfit that was obsessed by the amount of dust in a rider’s bedroom would not keep track of the amount of triamcinolone it ordered. Brailsford professed to be ignorant of the reputation of the corticosteroid, a favourite of Armstrong and now-reformed doper David Millar for helping them lose to weight and pedal harder, which, again, is difficult to fathom when he is so fixated with every single cog of the organisation over which he presides.”

Peter Mandelson says “I work every single day to bring forward the end of [Mr Corbyn’s] tenure in office.” Reports The Independent (and others)
How loyal to the party and a democratically elected leader. The New Labour camp lost two leadership campaigns… doesnt that say something to the likes of Mandelson and NL?

Tony Bliar’s “mission” to persuade Britons to “rise up” and change their minds on Brexit. Reported by TheGuardian BBC and others.
Bliar’s announcement is such a mix of arrogance and contempt of the UK populus. His crusade to “not leave the EU” is effectively saying to half the UK electorate “you got it wrong and I will reverse things ” … while Leaving the EU is probably the most stupid thing this country could do – it has voted to do it. This debate should have taken place before the referendum. The deal is done. If people are stupid enough to vote for an unknown, undefined exit that is unfortunate. Maybe if more “better informed” had donned their undies over their pants and engaed in a mission back in April-May last year we wouldn’t now be sat in a Native American vessel somewhere in a canyon of excrement with no means of propulsion” (apologies to Dr Cooper for the misquote

??.??.???? – RIP 45th Presidency <–maybe this was the day –>

07.03.2017 President Donald Trump has not spoken to the FBI about his claim that his predecessor wiretapped his phones. FBI Director James Comey has reportedly rejected the allegation – one report said he was “incredulous”.
But White House spokesman Sean Spicer said on Tuesday the president has yet to speak to him about it.
The DOJ has not commented

Is this to deflect from Seesions?? Josh Earnest ABC : This may “come as some surprise” to Pres. Trump, but  A US president cannot legally order the wiretapping of a US citizen.
A warrant, if it existed, would most likely have been ordered by the Department of Justice.

Gleichschaltungen : The policy and/or process of achieving rigid and total coordination and uniformity (as in politics, culture, communication) by forcibly repressing or eliminating independence and freedom of thought, action, or expression

In Germany 1933-37  it was :

  • The systematic elimination of organisations  such as trade unions, political parties, religious groups that could potentially influence people.
  • The establishment of Peoples Court. It worked outside the established frmework of the Law. And dealt with mainly “Political Offences”
  • Political parties objecting were banned, other parties disbanded to avoid persecution, arrest and the camps.
  • The Enabling Act allowed the Chancellor to pass laws independent of any other Government body – no checks no balances
  • The Decree for the Protection of the People and the State suspended civil liberties such as
    * habeus corpus
    * right to assembly
    * freedom of speech
    * freedom of the press
    * all restraints on police investigations
    * expand powers of arrest
    * ban strikes
So be warned if you spot stuff like this happening you know where it will end!   

In these times that TRUMPet  The Big LIAR, and more … try The Three Filter Test  and always be cognisant of that impending Knock knock …when they came for whoever is left

Let us hope it all stays in London
I dont see why other parts of the UK should be subjected to the cost and inconvenience that this visit will incur.
Parliament, The Government and The Monarch are all based in London.
They invited him – they should entertain him.
Anyone with any desire to see or engage with the man can travel.

 


The Government has responded to the petition you signed – “Prevent Donald Trump from making a State Visit to the United Kingdom.”.

Government responded:

HM Government believes the President of the United States should be extended the full courtesy of a State Visit. We look forward to welcoming President Trump once dates and arrangements are finalised.

HM Government recognises the strong views expressed by the many signatories of this petition, but does not support this petition.

During her visit to the United States on 27 January 2017, the Prime Minister, on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen, invited President Trump for a State Visit to the UK later this year. The invitation was accepted. This invitation reflects the importance of the relationship between the United States of America and the United Kingdom. At this stage, final dates have not yet been agreed for the State Visit.

UPDATED : 14.02.2017
SS tweets  – with no supporting evidence – Trump claim Obama ‘abuse of power’ probe amid wiretap claim   Just false claim Obama aide.  But two former senior US officials quickly dismissed Trump’s accusations out of hand. “Just nonsense,” said one former senior US intelligence official. CNN report

 

 

 

 

 

SS reports  “No, absolutely not. No way” that Flynn discussed sanctions with the Russian ambassador. Flynn resigns hours later following a ringing endorsement from Conway.

It had to happen, and thanks to SNL and Melissa McCarthy,  Sean the Alternaive now has his own page. Other bits will stay where they are but all new Spicer Facts (real and aletranative) plus (and this is a limited offer that comes with a $1 Ivanka Crapon redeemable at any inflight Pan-AM trolley) any new stuff should be here. So let’s give it up for Sean, the jerk who mad polotics funny again for all the wrong (though hilarious ) reasons.

Milo Yiannopoulos

UPDATED 21.02.2017

Born:18 October 1984 (age 32)
Profession:Public speaker, “provocateur”, technology editor of Breitbart News
Education:University of Manchester; Wolfson College, Cambridge – withdrew from both

Controversies

Twitter

Yiannopoulos has long been a controversial figure on Twitter, calling himself “the most fabulous supervillain on the internet”.
He was banned from the platform in July 2016 for his association with troll attacks on Ghostbusters actress Leslie Jones.

Journalism

Yiannopoulos’s byline has also been attached to numerous incendiary pieces on alt-right website Breitbart News:

  • “The solution to online ‘harassment’ is simple: Women should log off”
  • “Birth control makes women unattractive and crazy”
  • “Would you rather your child had feminism or cancer?”
  • “Gay rights have made us dumber, it’s time to get back in the closet”

Simon & Schuster has cancelled the publication of Milo Yiannopoulos’ book (he had a $250,000 advance)
His fellow Breitbart employees are supposed to have said they will quit if he isn’t fired.
All stems from a video posted on facebook dealing with (arrange yourself  sex between younger  older men endorsing boys and ) …later edited (for taste?)

Public Speaking

This year (2017)  Berkeley (Univ. of California) cancelled a speaking engagement of Yiannopoulos after student protests. Who later claimed on facebook that he (and  his  team) was safe following the “evacuation” and denouncing the protesters as fearing free speech.
The incident prompted TRUMP onto twitter to threaten Berkeley with a withdrawal of funding.
…Nice one Mr President

Looks like there is another member of the Trump clan who doesn’t subscribe to the JFK philosophy.

“My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”
