… Are the Palestinians Crazy [#U.N. Security Council]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,November 26th,2016

.. it seems that the Palestinian Authority [the P.A.] is at it again …

.. in any other time , they would not even try to pull this …

.. but , now , we have the First Wuss [an anti – Israeli POTUS]…

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post …

.. it is a resolution that would normally pass the Security Council . The big question is our own country . Normally , a veto at the U.N.S.C. is an easy call to expect . But , remember , we have the First Wuss in the President ‘ s Mansion . So , ….

.. he will not vote in favour , but he also may not veto the resolution , either . So , it will take effect . To what effect , lord knows ….

— [update] — the U.S. voted against , but did not veto the resolution . Boy , did the First Wuss look weak and disgusting in this one ….

… What Is POTUS Thinking ?? [#EU referendum][#U.K.]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,April 29th,2016

.. what is he thinking , indeed ..

.. POTUS Is currently on an international TRIP TO THe Middle East , and then on to Britain . While he is there , he has a tendency to offer up opinions . However , those opinions will likely not be either very well liked or very well received by his hosts ..

.. the E.U. stay or go referendum question in Great Britain is a very real case in point . The U.K. was a late entry into the E.U. . France itself , in particular was not thrilled with the idea . The U.k. has always been somewhat ambivalent towards the E.U. . So , any outsider sticking their nose into their business is not likely to be well received . POTUS ‘ actions via this question are just that way ..

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. POTUS thinks that the U.K. should stay in the E.U. . The U.K.i.p. , In patrticular , is not thrilled with POTUS shooting off his mouth . U.K.I.P. , as its name shows , does not want the U.K. to remain in the E.U. not one minute longer . So POTUS ‘ intervention is not wanted nor desired . They are sure that the referendum question and the entire subject aree the U.K. ‘ s business and not that of the United States . .

… Surprise in the U.K. [#Tory majority]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,May 15th,2015

.. I did think that the Tories [the Conservatives] would win the election in the U.K. . I was not sure on the percentage , though . Great Britain ‘ s quirky first-past-the-post system of constituencies is a little bit goofy to read …

.. but I did think that the Tories would win . But not like this , though ..

.. PM David Cameron and his campaign team did a magnificent job . Even with the marked increase in the vote by the right – leaning UKIPs , the Tories won , and did so convincingly …

.. [h/t — pjmedia.com]..
.. [link] to the blog news …

.. they won a majority of 331 seats . Add in the seat of their allies [the DUP in Northern Ireland] , and their majority will increase to around 342 seats …

.. not a bad job …

… Surprise in the U.K. [#Tories]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,May 13th,2015

.. to be honest , I was not expecting this ..

.. I also thought that Labour would do better . Much better . Around 260 to 270 seats would have been my mark ..

.. but 229 seats ? P. U. .. boy , did Labour do lousy …

.. [h/t — pjmedia.com]..
.. [link] to the blog news …

.. but the Liberal DemoCraps did even worse . They once had 59 seats , and a seat in government . They now have only 10 seats at Westminster , and no seat in government at all …

.. Ouch ..

.. oh , you can guess what happened . Ed Milliband and Nick Clegg [the respective party leaders] , along with Nile Farage [the UKIP leader] all quit . It is the British tradition to take responsibility …

.. now comes redistricting , and both Labour and the LDP really get screwed …

… an Election is Coming [#Great Britain]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,May 2nd,2015

.. and it is going to be a wild one ..

.. when is it ? May 7th , 2015 ..

.. Great Britain has the House of Commons , which is where the election is for . There are a total of 650 constituencies in the House of Commons …

.. [h/t — en.Wikipedia.org]..
.. [link] to the blog article …

.. how many parties …

[at least the significant ones]

.. Conservative [Con] .. (right wing)

.. Labour [Lab] .. (left wing)

.. Liberal Democrats [LDP] .. (left of center moderate)

.. Green [Grn] .. (socialist)

.. UK Independence Party (right of center to conservative) [UKIP] ..

.. Democratic Union Party [DUP] (Northern Ireland) … (unionist)

.. Sinn Fein [SFN] (NI) .. (irish nationalist)

Sinn Fein does affect the number of seats needed to achieve a majority , because they do not actually take their seats . As a result , the actual total is reduced to 645 , and the # needed for a majority is reduced from 326 to 323 …

.. Scottish National Party [SNP] (Scotland) (left wing)

.. there are many other parties , but these are the ones that matter …

… Well , Scotland has Spoken [#independence vote]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,September 20th,2014

.. and , I have to admit , I am surprised …

.. Scotland rejected independence by a margin of 55.4% to 44.6% . That is a margin of 10.8% ….

.. [h/t — Wikipedia.org(Scotland Independence Referendum)]..
.. [link] to the article …

.. that is a very healthy margin …

.. I thought that it would be closer than that . The way that the vote was trending , I thought the independence campaign just might win …. just … but it did not ….

.. so , what do I think about it ? … I think that Scots have a strong nationalistic sense of self , and are very self – confident about it . Sometimes , it can tend to border on arrogance . Gee , who does that sound like ?? …

.. You got it . The U.S.A. … A great many of our country ‘ s ancestors are either Scottish , English , or Scotch – Irish , along with Irish … the arrogance tends to run in the British Isles , and we here in the ” Colonies ” inherited it…. in spades …

.. except Great Britain I do not think ever expected that their former 13 colonies to become the economic , military , and social colossus that we have become , and still are …

… There is No Excuse For This [#molestation]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,September 13th,2014

.. none whatsoever ..

.. the fact that political correctness played a serious , if not severe role , in the lack of prosecution of the offender is sick and disgusting …

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the video news report …

.. I know , this is Britain where this situation occurred . God only knows that it also happens everywhere , including here in the good ol’ U.S.ofA. , I am sad to say …

.. this situation has to change . These folks have to know and realize that the ” race card ” will not work , that authorities have the ” balls ” to stand up to them …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,May 15th,2014

.. I believe that it does .

.. but , will it vote for independence (in a referendum vote , this September) ? … I do not know , yet ..

.. a sizable minority will vote yes , no matter what . But , a majority ?? … that remains to be seen …

… Sick and Evil [UK NHS practice]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,March 29th,2014

.. this one is really , really bad , folks .

.. all together now . Puke !

.. [h/t — theDailyTelegraph(Uk)]..
.. [link] to the newspaper article …

.. what is this all about ? A number of NHS (National Health Service) hospitals in the U.K. [Great Britain] have been using babies that have either been aborted [murdered] or that have been stillborn as cannon fodder for their heating systems . Yes , using the innocents as ” fuel . ” …. the height of immorality and evil , without doubt …

.. the Government over there says that the practice has stopped . Want to bet that it still continues ?? i would bet that it does . Anyone that is willing to consider doing this in the first place is willing to lie about it and to continue doing it …
