Our wonderful Central Bank

I see our Central Bank, in its latest Economic Review, informs us that GNP will decline by 4.75% this year.

Wow - that's impressive. Economic forecasting to two decimal places.

But wait! Can this be the same CB that only a few months ago told us we'd have actual economic growth in 2009? Let me see... why yes, the very same one. Quite a change. And the next Economic Review will reveal further change, as, ever behind the curve, it'll dawn on them that the decline will be a lot greater than 4.75%. Something like 7.294%.

Which forces me to ask, why do we have a plethora of bodies drawing up these economic forecasts, each pretty much the same and all wildly wrong? Just off the top of my head I can think of the CB, ESRI, ICTU, Fas, Dept. of Finance plus all the banks and brokerages.

As a recovering economist (scary confession) I can tell you that most economic forecasting is useless, often driven by vested interests (e.g. the banks and brokers telling us everything is just fine) and lent a spurious sense of authenticity by use of ample decimal places.

Ignore those emanating from the vested interests and close down those funded by the taxpayer. And in conclulsion, close down the CB as well. It ceased to have any relevance once we joined the Euro zone

A: What the fuck you lookin' at?

We deserve all we get. Again.

About a week ago I had a post entitled ‘We deserve all we get’ which highlighted the fact that about 100 Albanian murderers and gangsters were refused extradition from the UK by the UK courts, for reasons that will be apparent only to mad judges. My point was that a people that doesn’t rise up against such outrages ultimately deserves what it gets.

Now I have another splendid example from closer to home. This is the case of Kristoff Alauya, a Nigerian cultural enricher who has been sentenced to life for the brutal murder of a pretty Belfast girl Grace Moore. The judge said it was ‘impossible to comprehend’ the brutality and callousness of the killing and subsequent ransacking of the flat. He added that experienced police officers ‘had been devastated’.
After the murder and robbery (and possible rape – the girl was covered in semen, both internally and externally) the cultural enricher went for a meal ‘because he was hungry’. Obviously he was deeply traumatized by the experience.

As you’d expect, this guy has form. He had applied for asylum in Dublin (can't imagine why they didn’t do the usual, ‘come in, make yourself at home, bring joy and diversity to our dull lives’). He kept busy while waiting for the decision. In this short time he married an Irish woman and fathered children by four different retards women. In between he had attacked and robbed two taxi drivers and began dealing in crack cocaine.

Needless to say, our mad judges let him out on bail, at which point he skipped up to Belfast and within days had robbed and murdered Grace Moore. So mark down another rape/murder to our ‘learned’ judges.

Now you may well ask yourself why I'm writing this. After all, violent thieving African fuck-machines marauding around the country are hardly noteworthy by now. True. But my point is this: haven’t the victims, and by extension the rest of us, brought this on themselves?

Despite the oppressive PC censorship blanket, almost everyone in Ireland now knows what Nigerians are like. Not least their high incidence of HIV. Yet, within a very short time of arriving here he got some Irish girl to marry him. Found three more to impregnate (and God knows how many others he didn’t knock up), unleashing four future criminals onto society. And he got the taxpayer to pick up all their living expenses.

After the violent robberies I referred to, he was let loose on society again

He then meets an attractive girl in a nightclub, who, never having met him before, invited him back to her house. Where he rapes, kills and robs her.

Again I ask, how fucking stupid and irresponsible are these girls/women who went out with him? Do they deserve much sympathy for what happened? I'm not sure that they do. What about the mad judges who let him out, to continue his life of violent crime? Well, they don't need sympathy, as they’re safe and comfortable in their leafy wealthy suburbs.

One final point: The judge noted that Alauya felt more sorry for himself than for the victim and her family. This is classic psychopathic behaviour and supports once again the link between this syndrome and race. If you haven’t read my earlier post on this, read it here.

Michaelangelo's David returns to Italy from the US




Michaelangelo's David has been on exhibition in the US , sponsored by Kentucky Fried Chicken, Starbucks, McDonald's and Burger King, for the last two years.
.
The statue is now returning to Italy.






They don't come better than this!


The "Reverend" Jesse Jackson has added former Chicago Democratic Congressman Mel Reynolds to Rainbow/PUSH Coalition's payroll. Reynolds was among the 176 criminals excused in President Clinton's last-minute forgiveness spree.
.
He received a commutation of his six-and-a-half-year federal sentence for 15 convictions of wire fraud, bank fraud, and lies to the Federal Election Commission. He is more notorious, however, for concurrently serving five years for shagging an underage campaign volunteer.

This is a first in American politics: An ex-congressman who had sex with a subordinate...won clemency from a President (Bill C.) who had sex with a subordinate...then was hired by a 'clergyman' (Jesse J.) who had sex with a subordinate!
.
His new job?

Ready for this??

Well, at least diversity has been advanced with this appointment.

Wave the Pres goodbye


More gypsies tramps and thieves

My post 'Gypsies, tramps and thieves' has drawn a comment from what's clearly an American female gypsy. Here's what she has to say:

"It saddens me to see voice given to bigots like this blogger, and also to the book he is peddling, written by Dennis Marlock.Incidentally, I was led to this obscene blog link by one of Mr. Marlock's book links. Dennis Marlock is the owner of a website that degrades and defames one specific ethnic group (Rom) over all others, under the color of authority and the guise of crime and fraud prevention.It is unlawful to discriminate based on ethnicity.

The Romani people are such an ethnic group. They are a Micro-minority among other ethnic groups.The word Gypsy is considered derogatory, especially in the defamatory context that Mr. Marlock utilizes it in. He specifically, repeatedly targets the Romany people for degradation and defamation in all his writings and crime / fraud prevention speeches.

On his fraud prevention website alone, he mentions GYPSIES in regard to being responsible for crime over 95 times. Roma 16 times, yet all other ethnic, racial and organized crime groups, including the MAFIA, less than 5 times each.The fact is; US crime statistics show that the Romany people are responsible for over all crime in such a minuscule percentages that they can't be assigned a classification or numerical value.

Everything Mr. Marlock touches and creates is filled with neo-Nazi ideology and sentiment. Most of his Internet book listings lead back to various other Romani themed Hate sites, like this one.If I were to apply Mr. Marlock's formula for stereotyping, then I could point out that he hails from and originates in Wisconsin. Wisconsin is the second most active state in the country for neo-Nazi (NSM) activity and membership.

I could therefore suspect that Dennis Marlock is a stealth white supremacist who utilizes and exploits the criminal justice system to further his own neo - Nazi agenda.I find it particularly disturbing that Mr. Marlock has been in a position of power as a police officer. I shudder to think of what racist discrimination he may have been a party to, under the color of authority, during his employment with the Milwaukee police department.

This type of outrageous inciting and targeting (under the color of authority) is what leads to ethnic cleansing, pogroms, holocausts and genocide. As in the Nazi regime, once the Gypsy is socially acceptable for ethnic cleansing - genocide is next.It is hard enough to come to a new country and try to blend in and make it without this sort of hatred hobbling all honest attempts to adapt to a host social environment.

It has taken most Romani families close to 3 generations to recover from the holocaust, as well as adapt to a changing world. Just like the earlier immigrant groups, they come here because for the Romani people it is near to impossible to get past the stigma, blatant defamation and unhindred discrimination they are subjected to in Europe.Case in point ... this hate and venom spewing blogger. This is the very ethnic cleansing inciting crap some Europeans feel at liberty to spew forth about the Romani people. And nobody seems to object or do anything about it.

Like most other immigrants coming to America most Romani people lack education and language skills and thus are forced to work as criminals servants within American society. Like most other immigrants Romani immigrants adapt and raise their families by means of hard, back breaking and HONEST work.I know this response will never see the light of day. Just as on Mr. Marlock's website ... this blogger is probably too cowardly to offer a forum for discussion to his racist spews. But at least I have had my say."

Wow! What a powerful rejoinder! Did you see they way she systematically and in detail demolished each of the points I raised?

You didn’t?

Neither did I.

In fact she retreats to the one argument you wheel out when you have no other to silence the opposition: The Nazis and the Holocaust, and strategically locate them on the ‘slippery slope’ to perdition. Note also the expert use of the PC attack vocabulary, ' hate', 'venom' 'spewing'. Straight from central casting.

The closest to a specific rebuttal relates to the fact that gypsies are not accorded their own crime category in US statistics. Well of course, as I'm sure is also the case with Zoroastrians and Dancing Dervishes - because their numbers are miniscule. Even if we make the not unreasonable assumption that every gypsy in the US is engaged in crime, their numbers there are so tiny (lucky US) that they’d still fail to register on the aggregated statistics.

And she concludes with yet another error, that "this blogger is probably too cowardly to offer a forum for discussion to his racist spews."

In fact I’m always happy to present contrary views, especially when, like this, they underline the vacuity of those same views.

We deserve all we get

Read the following and ask yourself, don't we really deserve all we get for tolerating this kind of thing?

The Mail Online reports that “Eighty foreign killers are exploiting the chaotic asylum system to set up home in Britain. The convicted murderers from Albania have been given British passports despite being officially listed as 'wanted' by Interpol!!

The scandal came to light when Albania's chief of police complained that 100 criminals from his country have been granted British citizenship and now live here (in the UK). The police chief said the criminals have been allowed to stay even though the Albanian government has informed the Home Office of the true identities of the men and their crimes, which also include rape and robbery.
Many of the convicted criminals have been living in the UK for up to ten years and have started new families here. Meanwhile, many continue to live off state hand-outs while others have gone on to commit crimes in Britain After the Home Office was informed about the true identity of the asylum seekers, extradition proceedings against them were lodged by the Albanian Government.

But complex legal arguments and the need to find interpreters and psychologists has led to lengthy delays [and costs, I might add, picked up, needless to say, by the taxpayers]. Albanian criminals use myriad loopholes in the extradition laws to avoid being sent home. Their lawyers often claim they will suffer human rights abuse on their return, or that trials in their absence were unfair because they could not give their side.

The situation is even more complicated if they have become British citizens. Under the Human Rights Act 1988, this gives them further protection against being removed because their family life would be disrupted.

Ah yes. Mustn’t disrupt foreign murderers’ family lives, must we?

As the revelations exposed the shambles within the asylum system yet again, campaigners expressed their outrage. Rose Dixon, of victim group Support After Murder and Manslaughter, added: 'I'm astounded. If this is correct, I'm appalled that these people are walking the streets of Britain. I think we should be told a lot more about this.'

Fat chance, Rose.
.

Ahmet Prenci, the Albanian chief of police, said he felt as if all his force's hard work in tracking down the culprits had been in vain.


'We have made a list of our people who are hiding in the UK,' he said. 'There are 100 criminals, and more than 80 per cent are wanted for murder and have been convicted in absentia.

'They have been given British citizenship despite our efforts to extradite them to serve prison sentences in our country. 'We are working intensively to identify, locate, and then to arrest wanted Albanian people in Britain. Unfortunately, many have British passports obtained after they claimed asylum by pretending to be Kosovans.

'We are unhappy that the courts repeatedly refuse extradition of these criminals. There is no reason for this.'"


And I ask a final question: When will the villagers, armed with flaming torches, mass outside the homes of the judges who, safe in their leafy suburbs, inflict these villains on the rest of us?

As I was saying.....


I've pointed out on numerous occasions (and well before the ‘professional’ economists did it) how Ireland was heading for hard times due to a bloated and inefficient public sector gorging itself on the exposed productive private sector.

Now here’s a vignette which underlines the problem. It concerns the organisation ‘People with Disabilities in Ireland (PwDI)’. According to its website “PwDI is the umbrella organisation which brings people together locally and nationally to work on common issues that affect all people with disabilities.”
.
Now any ‘umbrella organisation, in my experience, is, or becomes over time, a purely administrative/co-ordinating body – something to be run by a modestly paid administrator with a clerical assistant. But we’re talking about the Irish public sector here. So we have a ‘Chief Executive’ who’s supported by five other staff.
.
And what does this ‘Chief Executive’ earn? The princely sum of €150,000 (about $200,000) p.a. You can also rest assured that the panoply of public sector expenses, (e.g. travel costs of more than €1 per mile) will add about 30% tax free to this figure. Now I know someone who manages a store for a sporting goods chain. He earns about one quarter of that, and his job depends on the store making a profit. He has more than ten people working for him.
.
In a nutshell, this demonstrates how the country has gone off the rails. Our resources have been leeched from the exposed, productive sector in order to support hundreds, and I mean hundreds, of quangos like PwDI - plus the rest of the public sector.
.
This is why Ireland is one of the most expensive places in the world to do business, and why, in turn, enterprises are closing in droves. Bring on the cleansing hellfire in the form of an IMF intervention.

Today's Irish Times Web site

Under the heading 'Most Popular Stories':

'Property developer found dead in home'

How very unkind.

Jail the judge!


Bartender Martin Prokopec was on is way home in the early hours of November 1, 2004 when he bumped into Bryan McBarron on Arklow's Main Street and fell into conversation with him. The barman gave McBarron a cigarette and went to walk away after declining to give him a second one.
.
But McBarron ran after him with a knife and stabbed him several times in the head and face. As well as the stab wounds, Mr Prokopec was left with fractures near his eye and cheek bone, exposed tendons on his hand and injuries to the abdomen, back and scalp. The brutal attack left the Slovakian man fighting for his life.

The case came to court in December 2005 at which point Irish justice swung into action. Judge Pat McCartan gave McBarron, who also had previous convictions for drink driving, criminal damage and possession of a flick knife, a two-year sentence at Wicklow Circuit Criminal Court.
.
Two years! But it gets better. Because this particular Mad Judge then suspended the sentence, and this violent thug walked free from the court.
.
Well done ‘learned’ judge.
.
Now fast forward to June 2007, where this beauty stabs to death the daughter of an eminent cardiologist. As the Irish Independent delicately put it (musn’t upset the ‘learned’ judges now, and risk contempt of court) “McBarron was only free at the time of the murder because a judge suspended a two-year sentence for a brutal attack which left a Slovakian man fighting for his life.”
In other words Sara Neligan would be alive today if this prick of a judge had done his job and put McBarron away for about 20 years. And we wonder why our murder rate goes up and up.

Socratic discourse

Some of you might find the following interesting. It's a small part of an exchange I had with a good friend from Lebanon, who happens to be of the Greek Orthodox persuasion. I've called him Amine for purposes of anonymity.


Thanks Amine – your response was particularly thoughtful. I need to take issue with a couple of points though:

“either God exists or He doesn’t”:

Well, it depends on what you mean by God, doesn’t it? I believe that there has to be a Prime Mover – a force that started everything. To me that’s self-evident. This doesn’t make it God, at least in the sense that the various religions use the term. Still less does it give any credence or validity to the various religions or their dogmas. Every half-assed preacher claims to have been in communion with ‘God’. Furthermore, religions like Hinduism have numerous gods, incuding one with an elephant’s head and man’s body, or whatever.

“We blame God…....”:

You don’t blame him unless you believe in him as defined above. Personally, I don’t blame him when things go wrong or credit him when things go right. The opposite view can reach laughable – yes, mockable - levels, such as those tsunami victims who survived by some freak chance and credited Allah for it. Obvious question: wouldn’t it have been a lot easir if Allah hadn’t caused the tsunami in the first place?

“hypothetically, if everyone instantaneously chose to believe in God and let that impact completely all decisions, actions, thoughts and states of being, then would it be possible for any of the following to exist: war, injustice, poverty, crime, hate, jealousy, the corruption of power, lack of mercy, seeking wealth at the cost of keeping thousands in poverty, exploiting the environment by destroying the very creation we need to exist etc etc? Would we not instantaneously then create the conditions for the Kingdom of Heaven? “

NO, NO, and NO again! The whole f*cking problem we have, and always have had, is people ‘believing in God and doing what He wants’ Except everyone has a different idea of what He wants. So we get millions killed in religious wars, untold misery all over the world even today. It goes back to what I said – even assuming God had intentions - who knows what they are? You cant just select the saints, as you’ve done, and ignore the mass murdering religious figures throughout history, again, up to today (e.g. Mr. Bin Laden and Bush).

Equally you identify all the good and desirable things – and I agree fully with you on that – and then with a wave of the wand equate them to God’s will. I know you don’t mean it personally Amine, but I resent it when people assume that if you don’t subscribe to some organised religion you don’t have a moral compass. Well, I direct you to look at the various international statistics.

Compare the Nordic countries – undoubtedly the least religious – with the most religious, probably the Islamic and Latin American ones. On every practical moral count the heathens win overwhelmingly.

*Corruption and dishonesty

*Violent crime

*Disparities between rich and poor

*Poverty levels

*Democratic accountability

*Real foreign aid as % of GNP

*Peace and cooperation between the states

I could go on, but you get the drift. Even in my own acquantainces I see no difference in moral standards whatsoever between the religious and non-religious ones. Sure I’m provocative, but what’s wrong with that? We need to be able to debate the issues with open minds. For the record, I have prayed and probably will pray again. I truly believe there has to be ‘something’ there, but I sure as ‘hell’ don’t find it in organised religions. Lighten up!

Christianity: The belief that a cosmic Jewish zombie, who was his own father, can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master so he can remove an evil source from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib woman who was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magic tree…. Yeah, makes perfect sense.

A telling progression...

This montage traces the growth of Israel and the decline of Palestinian lands in four stages since 1947. It's simplistic and obviously doesn't address a whole range of contributing factors. Still, it doesn't make life easy for those of us anxious for Israel to live in peace with its neighbours, does it?

Overplaying your hand - it's dangerous

A few months back, in a post entitled Tails wagging dogs’ I showed how the American dog was wagged by the Israeli tail, which was in turn wagged by the religious/settler movement in Israel. Shocking new evidence of the scale of this subservience emerges in a report from the Jerusalem Post - supporters of the Israeli right-wing parties. The report relates to the UN ceasefire resolution partially drawn up by Condi Rice.

"Upon receiving word that the US was planning to vote in favor of the resolution - viewed by Israel as impractical and failing to address its security concerns - Olmert demanded to get Bush on the phone, and refused to back down after being told that the president was delivering a lecture in Philadelphia. "I said 'get President Bush on the phone.'

They tried and told me he was in the middle of a lecture in Philadelphia. I said 'I'm not interested, I need to speak to him now.' He got down from the podium, went out and took the phone call." America could not [Note the 'could not'] vote in favor of such a resolution, Olmert told Bush. Rice was forced by Bush to change her mind and abstained when votes were counted.

This is the same Bush who, when told that America was under attack on 9/11, took nearly ten minutes to respond. Obviously Israel’s needs are more important than America’s. There’s no greater example in the world of one country being totally subservient to another.

Oh wait! Britain’s subservience to the US would probably qualify.

Don't know about you, but I find this situation creepy. And as I said in an even earlier post, (The threat to American Jews) Jews in America could invite European-style anti-Semitism by overplaying their hands, especially in the light of their roles in the Iraq fiasco and the financial melt-down.

The net closes in

Migration Watch Ireland has had it's site taken down after being referred to the police. Quoting Politics.ie "It seems they fell foul of the Nigerian Candidate, one Frances Soney-Ituen, who is standing in the Locals in Athy, Co Kildare next June and who complained to the local Leinster Leader. Then the Irish Sun got involved and ran the story. When this Site didn’t come up with an answer to their liking quick enough it looks like somebody called in the Garda Internet Unit."

"Migration Watch have now issued the following statement part of which reads as follows:‘This afternoon we were contacted by official authorities and asked to provide a full explanation of our website and names and addresses of Migration Watch staff, and the details of our suppliers of information and posters. We were also asked to remove the links to our Election Watch section.We have since refused the request, and disposed of such information."

Well, well, well. A Nigerian cultural enricher, who got in here - I'd love to know how - doesn't like the approach to freedom of speech in her new country, so uses the police, who'd otherwise be engaged chasing down Nigerian drug dealers, to close down an Irish site to which she takes exception.

I'm waiting for the midnight knock myself.

The blonde and the postman


After 35 years of work, a postman is making the rounds on his last day. One family gives him cutlery as a gift, another one gives him $50, and when he rings at the third door, the door opens and a glamorous blonde appears.

She immediately takes him to the bedroom where they spend two hours having the most amazing sex. After the shower she presses a $5 bill into his hand.
.
Thrilled but bewildered, he asks: "Can you explain all of this to me...?!?"
.
The blonde responds: "well, yesterday, I told my husband that our postman is going to retire and we need to give him something, and he, replies: "fuck him,...... give him 5 dollars!"
.
PS - be sure to check out the comments to this post - some more great blond jokes

Jews and the Wall St. melt-down

A large number of comments to this blog have referred to how prominent Jews have been in the development of the current meltdown. This is indeed true, and not only have they dominated in terms of numbers, many (e.g. Rubin, Greenspan) also seem to have escaped the train wreck with their fortunes largely intact.

What does this prove? A coterie of Jews meeting in a dark room, cackling as they draw up their plans to rip off the goyim?

No. Jews make up a disproportionate ratio of Wall St. gangsters for the same reason they're disproportionately represented among doctors, professors, media tycoons, philosophers and writers: High IQ.

And this is exactly the same reason you see so few blacks numbered among those occupations. Or among the Wall St. crooks. As this post and many other related ones show, career performance is determined by IQ more than any other characteristic. Jews are, very disproportionately, highly intelligent with a strong work ethic. Blacks are neither.

And I conclude by suggesting that the cleanout of this particular nest of rats will driven and lead by, yes, Jews. Because they'll be the ones most able to do it. As I've said on several occasions, you'll find Jews on both sides of every argument or divide. There is no all-encompassing Jewish Plot.

I will bequeth

An 18 year-old girl tells her Mum that she has missed her period for two months. Very worried, the mother goes to the Chemist and buys a pregnancy kit. The test result shows that the girl is pregnant.

Shouting, cursing, crying, the mother says, "Who was the pig that did this to you? I want to know!"

The girl picks up the phone and makes a call. Half an hour later a Ferrari stops in front of their house; a mature and distinguished man with grey hair and impeccably dressed in an Armani suit steps out of the Ferrari and enters the house.

He sits in the living room with the father, mother, and the girl and tells them:

"Good morning, your daughter has informed me of the problem. I can't marry Her because of my personal family situation but I'll take charge. I will pay all costs and provide for your daughter for the rest of her life.

Additionally, if a girl is born I will bequeath her 2 retail stores, a Townhouse, a beachfront villa and a $2,000,000 bank account.

If a boy is born, my legacy will be a couple of factories and a $4,000,000 bank account. If twins, they will receive a factory and $2,000,000 each.

However, if there is a miscarriage, I'm not really sure what to do.

What do you suggest?"

At this point, the girls father, who had remained silent, places a hand firmly on the man's shoulder and tells him,

"You shag her again."

Comedy breakthrough

THE Medicis made their money out of banking and then, to atone for the sin of usury, financed the Renaissance. America’s robber barons built grand museums in provincial locales like Cleveland, Cincinnati and Chicago. Now, a similar kind of alchemy is turning the oil of the Persian Gulf into art, in a rush of royal patronage that may, some day, turn its pocket-sized monarchies into cultural meccas.

One of the most ambitious venture to date has been the Museum of Islamic Arts, which opened amid unbelievable fanfare last November. Financed by the stratospherically wealthy Qatari Royal Family, this initiative is the latest attempt to establish a cultural niche for Qatar.

Towards this end the guest list was made up of the great and the good from the political and entertainment spheres including Robert de Niro (dont belive me? check this) and a range of other Hollywood luminaries. Although the initiative had been faulted by some for lack of a clear goal and of being a 'solution looking for a problem', the event struck immediate pay dirt.

Even if inadvertently. The first indication came when the Emir's daughter Sheikha Mayssa, told the guests: "We aspire, through this museum, to highlight the peaceful and sublime civilization of Islam, which continues to call for tolerance and coexistence among peoples." This brought forth hearty guffaws from the audience, and thus encouraged, HH continued ‘Islam is a religion of knowledge, tolerance and civilisation – not of terrorism’ at which point the theatre exploded with mirth.

And Qatar had found its longed for artistic niche – Islamic Comedy. The rest of her gig had the audience in stitches, and her final line ‘Islam is a peaceful and progressive religion which has always called for tolerance and co-operation’ brought the house down.

Interviewed afterwards, de Niro, wiping tears from his eyes, chortled ‘I haven’t laughed so much since making 'Analyze This', or even 'Meet The Fokkers’. Becoming more serious, he added ‘Qatar has struck the mother lode of comedy. I think that playing Islam as moderate and tolerant is going to open up a whole new phase of the cmedy industry.'

'Inshallah’.

I'll keep an eye out for you Andre


This is NOT a joke - check it here

Texas death row inmate Andre Thomas is shown in this undated handout file photo released Friday, Jan. 9, 2009 in Huntsville, Texas. Thomas, who has a history of mental problems is being treated at a prison psychiatric unit after authorities said he pulled out his only good eye and ate it. He similarly had plucked out his right eye before his trial in 2004.

He confessed to the stabbings of his estranged wife, their young son and her 13-month-old daughter in March 2004. Their hearts also had been ripped out and apparently consumed by him subsequently.

Seems like the kind of guy Micheal Martin would like to extend asylum to, doesn’t he?

100% failure rate: Well done!

As regular readers will know, the term ‘black academic achievement’ is almost an oxymoron. The evidence is there in abundance. However, a spectacular example of how bad it can get is provided in the South Africa Sucks blog.


The post refers to one particular academic powerhouse in SA where every single student failed their grade 12 (i.e. Leaving/Matric level) exams! Media reports state that ‘all 15 matriculant pupils fail (sic), and all of the school’s 200-plus pupils from the other grades also fail (sic).’ Well done lads, well done.
Some of these scholars are featured on the above image.

We might indeed laugh, but ultimately the laugh is on us. We have allowed hundreds of thousands of Africans in here and we can expect a similar contribution from them as we migrate to the long-promised 'knowledge economy’.

The meltdown gathers pace

So Dell announce the termination of manufacturing at its Limerick facility, with the loss of almost 2,000 jobs directly and, given the prevailing ratio in IT manufacturing, an overall total of about 10,000. This represents more than 10% of the overall Stab City population, representing, for example, the equivalent of 300,000 losses in Greater Manchester, or 35,000 in Wichita.

This is carnage, but it was predictable, not by professional economic forecasters, but by anyone who cared to look under the covers. One of the earliest posts in this blog, almost two years ago, forecast exactly this predicament. I suggest you check it out here as the issues are still relevant, except much more urgently now. Compare my foresight with the ‘professionals’ who, up until six months ago still reassured us that ‘the fundamentals are sound’.

Yeah, right.

Now as I also mentioned earlier, Ireland might now be unable to borrow the necessary funds by issuing government bonds (the standard method). The Germans’ recent attempt to raise €6 billion has fallen short, so can you imagine what we face trying to raise three times that amount this year?

But as I always say, every cloud has a silver lining. This catastrophe that has fallen on us will, at long last, give this useless government no option but to address the fundamental flaws in the economy. Primarily they’ll need to take their snouts out of the trough and address the cost and efficiency of the public sector. Pity that so many will suffer so much in the meantime.

Too old for PC


Andy Rooney is an ancient (90 years old) humourist and political commentator who’s too old to be muffled by the PC Thought Police. Here’s what he said on the "60 Minutes" show a few months back:

"I don't think being a minority makes you a victim of anything except numbers. The only things I can think of that are truly discriminatory are things like the United Negro College Fund, Jet Magazine, Black Entertainment Television, and Miss Black America.
.
Try to have things like the United Caucasian College Fund, Cloud Magazine, White Entertainment Television, or Miss White America; and see what happens...Jesse Jackson will be knocking down your door."
.
Pity the likes of Andy are a dying breed.

Testosterone and violent crime

In a comment to an earlier post, Ben017 provided us with this interesting piece of research from the University of Western Ontario:


"For violent crime, analyses of INTERPOL data from the 1980s and 1990s show the same international distribution that occurs within the United States (that is, [East] Asians least, Europeans in the middle, and Africans most). A similar racial gradient is found both within the U.S. and globally for measures of sexual activity and frequencies of sexually transmitted diseases such as AIDS (based on World Health Organization data).


One neurohormonal contributor to crime and reproductive behavior is testosterone. Studies show that black college students and military veterans have 3% to 19% more testosterone than their white counterparts. The Japanese have even lower amounts than whites. Sex hormones are circulated throughout the body and are known to activate many brain-behavior systems involving aggression and reproduction."


This is a perfect fit (as the bishop said to the altar boy) with what I've been saying all along (see tags 'race' and 'crime') and has - or should have - major implications for European immigration policy. But it won't.

Ireland's Zimbabwe-like conditions

The front page of yesterday’s Irish Examiner carried a photo that should chill (sorry for the pun) our blood. This photo is not available on the paper’s web site, but the related report says:

"UPWARDS of 50 parents braved freezing temperatures in Tralee last night as they queued in a bid to ensure their children got places in one of the town’s second-level schools. Enrolment forms for Mercy Mounthawk secondary school will not be issued until next Wednesday, but parents were last night settling in for a five-night queue in the school grounds — regardless of the chilly weather."

Tralee is a town of about 20,000 souls, in the nether regions of Western Ireland. I said the following in an earlier post:

"I am reassured by the results of a survey on immigrants in Tralee, published today in the Irish Times. It seems 41% of the of the 'more than 3,500 immigrants' intend to stay there permanently."

Adding whimsically: "3,500? mmm... that's about the same as the number unemployed in Tralee, according to the CSO. Could it be just 100 Nigerians registering 35 times each?"

Given those figures, is it any wonder at all that there are inadequate numbers of school places? Remember, the immigrant population of Tralee 20 years ago would have been virtually nil.

The interesting thing about the report, and of those in other papers, is that not one of them refers to the the size of the immigrant community in Tralee, or indeed the immigration issue at all in the context of creating this problem. Even the suffering parents didn’t mention it.

The PC Thought Police have us well under control, haven’t they?

A plane of your own

Air travel has become such a drag. Have you ever wished for an end to hour-long boarding queues, lack of leg-room, malodorous passengers on either side, pissing your trousers as you wait for an available toilet?

You have? Well rejoice, for a solution has been found. And it has come from an African cultural enricher in Ireland, belying Kevin Myers’ dictum that all we get from the Dark Continent is poverty and disease.

An African providing a solution - as distinct from a problem - was the first of many surprises. This unnamed Ghanaian national was actually caught smuggling drugs into Ireland. That’s the second surprise. Then he actually got jailed – as distinct from being bailed and disappearing into Ireland’s thriving African underworld. The fourth surprise is that he was ordered to be deported, as distinct from appealing to every court in the land (said appeals naturally financed by the taxpayer). And the final surprise, the cops actually held on to him rather than requesting him to appear for deportation at some future date – deportees never show up, leaving the plane on the runway.

Now this enterprising chappie didn’t fancy travelling with a load of law-abiding citizens. And why should he? According to the Irish Times, police ‘tried three times to fly him on commercial flights, but each time the man became so violent he could not be put on the aircraft with other passengers’.

The solution? A plane of his own! Woo hoo! And this being the cash-rich, sorry, bankrupt, Irish Government, we didn’t go for just any plane. Not a Lear Jet or Gulf Stream. No, this beauty got his own Boeing 737! I kid you not.

And the cost? A mere €151,900.

Mind you, that's probably small change in terms of what this beauty would have cost us had he continued to grace us with his presence.

Update: Turkey

In a post entitles 'Welcome Mass Murderers' I made some unflattering references to the EU's new best friends, largely to the effect that the country is totally unapologetic about it's mass-murdering recent history. I also suggested that, given the experience of existing Turkish presence in the EU (mainly Germany) we were liable to hit some assimilation problems were 80 million largely impoverished Muslims flood the Continent.

Now thanks to SkotGerman I provide some YouTube links which illustrate how swimmingly well that German experience is going. Clip 2 is of particular interest, underlining, in my view, that the situation is beyond redemption.

As a post-script, check some of the dozens of other YouTube links provided when you watch the fight clips. Almost without exception they all involve blacks. Bet you're surprised at that!

Black youth murders skyrocket


The Huffington Post tells us that the number of young black men and teenagers who either killed or were killed in shootings has risen at an alarming rate since 2000, citing a new study Northeastern University in Boston. The rates for other races have remained basically stable over the same period. Not so for black teens, the youngest of whom saw dramatic increases (40%) in shooting deaths. .

Now I read this with mixed emotions, like as if I'd seen my mother-in-law drive off a cliff in my new car. And having solved the riddle of high black incarceration rates in this post, these developments were clearly of interest to me. .


What caused the surge in murders by blacks, as distinct from whites? Well, straight away we can rule out attaching any blame to the murderers themselves. They are, after all, from a minority ethnic group.

But who is to blame then?

Let's see. Aha! Further into the report we learn that “the study partly blamed Bush administration grant cuts to local police and juvenile crime prevention programs for the surge in crimes by young black men and teens”.
.

So that's it then. These otherwise model youths turned to slaughtering one another in great numbers because the Government reduced police funding. Whitey's to blame again.

On a non-facetious note in conclusion:

How can anyone expect the behaviour of blacks and other ‘at risk’ (largely from themselves) groups to migrate to national norms if we don't hold them responsible for their actions? The PC do-gooders who try to excuse every action of such groups are in fact the real racists - the implication being that you can't hold these people to the standards of white society.
.
Is that ironic, or what?
