It wuz the aliens wot done it

Whilst taking my daily wander through the wonderful world of the Internet I chanced upon this terrific little video which will explain everything you need to know about why Donald Trump was elected President of the United States.

According to Giorgio A. Tsoukalos (who some readers may recognise from the Ancient Aliens documentary series on The History Channel) says it may be all down to an alien mind control plot....

I'm still laughing. 

Go on watch this, you know you want to!

The new racists

One of the more shocking elements found amongst a large section of the modern "left" is an antipathy towards anything Jewish. These "anti-imperialists" claim that they are "simply" oppose "Zionism" because it seeks to establish and maintain a Jewish state in the historical land of the Jews, Israel. This they say is at the expense of the "Palestinians", a modern name for the Arabs who came to this part of the Middle East as a result of conquest after the rise of Islam.

The problem is that these "anti-Zionists" are very much prone to adopting far-right conspiracy theories and "memes" depicting the banking industry or media dominated by the Rothchilds and other Jews are fairly common in leftist circles. Much of this new prejudice comes from adopting an "Islam(ist)" dominated agenda as the Muslim world is (wrongly) seen as being part of an "anti-imperialist" movement, ignoring many unsavoury elements including Islamic supremacism and racism inherent in the Arab world in particular.

The world saw such expressions of Arab racism during the Darfur crisis, one which the left generally ignored and always blamed "imperialism" of the West rather than the imperialism of pan-Arabism mixed with a Jihadist orientated regime operating out of Khartoum. The victims of persecution here were black.

Anti-black racism is prevalent in a number of countries across the Arab world. from Algeria to the Lebanon, but remains little discussed amongst the British "left" and "anti-racist" movements. This despite evidence that slavery exists on a large scale in some saharan countries such as Mauritania where the slaves are likely to be darker skinned than their owners.

Whilst gender apartheid is well documented for countries like Saudi Arabia and the position of women in general being very much second class across the Arab/Muslim world, the discrimination against blacks, let alone other minorities remains very much ignored by the politically correct so-called left.

Their focus is entirely on destroying the worlds only Jewish" state, because such a notion is "racist" apparently whilst not for one moment considering the existence of nationalistic Islamic states at all a problem despite the well documented examples of persecution of minorities which existed long before the evil ISIS Caliphate sprang into existence. It's racism, intolerance and genocidal ideology did not simply come out of a vacuum, ISIS simply built on and created a whole movement based on the worst aspects of the world in which they originated.

The most obvious examples of the regions genocidal tendencies where seen in the early twentieth century during the mass extermination of Armenians and Greeks under the Ottoman empire. In modern times the Kurds, Nubians, Tuaregs and Yazidis amongst others have fallen foul of Arab nationalism.

But the Western radicals have now gone further than just ignoring Arab racism or ant-Semitism within their own ranks. Inside the universities in both America and the UK another racism has come to the fore. Anti-white racism.

At SOAS student radicals with little to no knowledge of the world around them, have already attempted to ban "white" philosphers from their coursework. Now they seek to ban white professors from lecturing BME (black & ethnic minority) students claiming that these individuals are "capable of racism". The irony that these students themselves have become racist in their outlook and practice is lost on them.

The left complain about being compared to blackshirts and being defined as no better than fascists but by their actions ye shall know them.

Corbyn is a security risk

The decision of Tristram Hunt to resign as an MP thereby causing another by-election was the final straw that ended Corbyn's already botched relaunch. The pundits started musing about the possible, if not probable loss of the seat to UKIP.

At the same time the Liberal Democrats continued their revival in two amazing local election victories in Sunderland where the Labour vote dropped by a whopping 29.9% and in Gade Valley by 9.9%, though in this case the Tories lost 22%. Labour is not picking up the support it requires to form the next government based on these figures and remember Sunderland is a Labour "heartland". No more it seems.

Corbyn's hardcore support group in Momentum is heading towards an organisational split as the comrades fall out over a new constitution. Their long anticipated conference later this year is likely to turn into a gladiatorial arena as the sectarians vie to overthrow each other in the name of the "Dear Leader".

Meanwhile Corbyn has invited US President elect Donald Trump to the Finsbury Park Mosque, one considered so extreme that most local Muslims won't even attend it preferring to borrow a local hall owned by the Catholic church for their Friday prayers.

And finally as if to rub salt into the wounds Corbyn has taken time out to write to Theresa May decrying a "security risk" to the country following the Al-Jazeera sting on an Israeli diplomat who has since been kicked out the country. The TV station is owned by the Qatari Royal family who have an agenda of their own and the station has used this incident to promote anti-Jewish reporting in a disgraceful fashion.

The irony of Corbyn raising a potential "security threat" is obvious to all but his most blinkered supporters. This is a man who has invited IRA, Hamas and Hezbollah terrorists into Parliament, refused to condemn the aggressive actions of Putin in the Ukraine and Crimea, ignored until pressed the crimes of Assad and Putin in Syria and has openly let down our allies in Nato.

If anyone is a security risk to this country it is a man who pursues a policy of appeasement with the world's dictators whilst seeking the disarming and isolation of this country in an increasingly dangerous world.

Corbyn has shown himself unfit for government. Labour is led by men who pursue ideological concerns before the interest of ordinary working people.

As a trade unionist, British Citizen and a Jew I oppose this man, his supporters and their Stalinist agenda.

For the good of this country they must go.

Lansman, Shawcroft, Mountford, Corbyn & Copeland

In a new twist to the outbreak of furious infighting within the Corbynista movement, Jon Lansman has resigned as the sole director of Momentum. He has been replaced by a woman notorious for not just suggesting we should invite ISIS for a chat over a cup of tea but also betrayed the Labour Party by backing the now proven corrupt former Mayor of Tower Hamlets, Lutfur Rahman. Why she is even allowed to remain a member is beyond belief.

According to a report published by Guido Fawkes Lansman lost the vote over his constitutional maneuver to purge the Trotskyists from Momentum at his local group.

The Alliance for Workers Liberty (AWL) one of of Lansman's main opponents are not taking their exclusion lightly. Already Sacha Ismail has expressed his public displeasure at being expelled but Jill "motormouth" Mountford is fighting  a rearguard action and writes on the AWL website:

According to the new constitution some members have no choice but to leave, they are, in effect, being expelled from Momentum because they’ve been expelled from the Labour Party. Most, myself included, have been expelled for political reasons, that is, being wrong kind of socialist, and have been provided with no evidence against them or had any opportunity to appeal. A practice generally condemned by the left in the Labour Party.....

No one should leave Momentum. We should stay and organise in the local groups, establish the best possible, most democratic local groups network, intervene where we can in the bureaucratic structures and continue to build an activists movement all around the country.

The AWL does have the backing of the Labour Party Marxists (a front for the Communist Party of Great Britain), the weird Jackie Walker and of course Tony Greenstein, who managed to make the whole affair about his own vainglorious self on his deranged blog.

Trouble is all of the above absolutley hate each other, so any alliance between them is bound to end in tears sooner rather than later.

Meanwhile as the Copeland by-election approaches the Conservative Party have gone "nuclear" in their attempt to take the seat from Labour which will be assisted by the assistance of Madame Shawcroft who somehow has ended up on the selection committee and will no doubt attempt to parachute in a pro-Corbyn candidate.

The Tories are focusing on nuclear power, which is a real issue in the constituency due to the huge and growing number of jobs dependent on it. The following video helpfully produced by Counterfire, the former SWP group that runs the Stop the War Coalition of which Corbyn used to be Chair will be used to undermine Labour's campaign.

In this Corbyn calls for the closure of all nuclear power stations. Not just wrong but a death knell for a huge number of Labour's voters in Copeland.

Momentum dissipates

Jon Lansman

Hot on the heels of the collapse of Jeremy Corbyn's relaunch comes yet another crisis for the far-left in Labour. The Momentum Tendency (proprietor: Jon Lansman) is openly split over the introduction of (shock, horror) a constitution that gives the decision making power to its members rather than the activists through a "One man, one vote" process.

In an e-mail Lansman declared:

The Constitution may not be perfect in everyone’s eyes, but, whatever process we follow, it is common ground that we need one, and it is surely better to have it now and amend it later by a process that is indisputable. As well as setting out the essential elements of our aims and objectives as they have always appeared on our website and in our public statements, the constitution:

Reinforces our wholehearted commitment to the Labour Party by restating our aim of working towards affiliation, and requiring all members to be party members;

Provides for elections and key decisions including changes to the constitution to be made by our members themselves;

One of the main features of Momentum is that it's members must be in the Labour Party. If someone has been expelled they cannot remain in the organisation. Outraged various individuals such as Nick Wrack (ex TUSC, Respect,) has described this as a "coup" by Lansman.

Sacha Ismail of the Alliance for Workers Liberty has already complained that he has been expelled from Momentum as a result of this decision. That's due to the fact members of the AWL are ineligible for membership  of the Labour Party as their group has been proscribed. Not sure what he expected.

The decision to go down this road will not only change Momentum but will split the group, with Lansman hoping it will rid him of his opponents and make it "easier" for Momentum to become affiliated to the Labour Party.

Already across Facebook and other social media sites a number of the comrades have declared they are off. Some have reportedly (and disturbingly) described this as a "Zionist" plot showing how utterly deranged and dangerous some of the new Black Shirt left have become.

The introduction of OMOV has caused such controversy because the harder left of Momentum including the AWL & others wanted to have a delegate system to ensure that members who turned up to meetings for hours on end (i.e. themselves) were able to "put over the arguments".

The basis of Lansman's decision was a survey which his opponents complain only led to a 40% response rate. The other 60% have been "excluded" and according to one complaint I read "people may not have read their e-mails". Actually maybe they just couldn't be bothered. Momentum has been falling apart since it's inception for one simple reason.

The authoritarian "left" are incapable of getting on with each other.

Every attempt to unite the so-called far-left and bring in a wider periphery has failed. There was Socialist Unity launched by the IMG in the seventies, The Socialist Alliance and the dreadful Islamist orientated Respect. Fails, all of them.

Lansman who has been part of the Labour Left for years is not entirely stupid and has obviously taken this move to exclude what he sees as the sectarian left in an attempt to move Momentum on.

However with Corbyn continuing to make a fool of himself the battle for the heart and soul of Labour continues.

There will be more on this as Momentum dissipates in glorious internecine warfare!

Corbyn's relaunch fails already


This week was supposed to see the relaunch of Jeremy Corbyn with bold new ideas and a coherent direction. Instead within a few hours the whole event had turned into a debacle as Corbyn announced live on television that he was introducing a "maximum wage policy", something the whole country was waiting to hear. Not.

Corbyn latched on the widespread discontent about the overpaid executives and added footballers to his list of targets. This appears to be something Corbyn thought up himself and it showed since he's not exactly renowned as an original thinker. Far from it.

Corbyn is just a seasoned protester who picks up on the latest fad and wades in with barely a thought waffling  through a list of basic platitudes about "socialism" (whatever that is supposed to be these days), American and British imperialism and how important it is to support the oppressed governments of Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, not forgetting to add the obligatory bash of Israel for his mates in Hamas.

But I digress (purposely it has to be said) as we turn back to today's events with Jeremy Hunt facing a grilling from and running away to a car from a diligent Sky News reporter. She put more pressure on Hunt than old Corbo. Even the rabidly pro-Tory Daily Mail was bashing the government over the NHS. An open goal that Corbyn should have seen and concentrated on, but no he just had to talk complete bollocks instead.

Then there's Brexit. The Government are in trouble over that as well. Corbyn did the standard and honorable political stance and avoided answering the question of Sky this morning.

Still he's had all day to think and now says that he "might" only "consider the Maximum wage after his former Bank of England advisor told him that the policy was unworkable. To be fair so did every other proper economist. I don't count the Marxist commentators. These people would have us within a "Soviet" style downturn if they ever got into power.

Whist Corbyn's supporters may have been monetarily buoyed even they must see he is a complete no-hoper. The time will inevitably come as even Commissar McCluskey has warned when Corbyn must go. Len's now worried about his own position you see, He bragged about support from the "Unite Now" grouping within his union but they have declined to support him. Or any other candidate to be fair.

Still like the Titanic, there is another ship in waiting to sink the Labour Party. A certain John McDonnell.

One thing is for certain, under these rag & bone politicians Labour will never achieve power

Music whilst we wait for Steptoe

I was under the impression we would be deconstructing Jeremy Steptoes renewal speech tonight as he offers his wares from the junkyard of the far-left.

"Get your policies here gov" was supposed to be the call to action for the masses.

Instead we're still waiting, which given I've caught yet another cold means an early night. However I had to share this new number from Band Maid.
