It’s All True; Honest, Guv’

Just take my word for it, there is no need to see actual evidence, really. There is interesting information over at The Conservative Treehouse where they show that the foundation for the Russian election interference narrative is shaky. It was built on the claim of Russians hacking the servers of the Democrat National Committee (DNC) and subsequently releasing damaging emails that showed that the DNC worked to help Hillary Clinton and eliminate Bernie Sanders.

Despite the Russian ‘hacking’ claim the DOJ previously admitted the DNC would not let FBI investigators review the DNC server. Instead the DNC provided the FBI with analysis of a technical review done through a cyber-security contract with Crowdstrike.

The narrative around the DNC hack claim was always sketchy; many people believe the DNC email data was downloaded onto a flash drive and leaked. In a court filing the scale of sketchy has increased exponentially.

Suspecting they could prove the Russian hacking claim was false, lawyers representing Roger Stone requested the full Crowdstrike report on the DNC hack. When the DOJ responded to the Stone motion they made a rather significant admission. Not only did the FBI not review the DNC server, the FBI/DOJ never even saw the Crowdstrike report.

Dark Clouds of History Gather Over Hong Kong

For those of us who remember the events of 1989, the escalating events in Hong Kong are starting to sound horribly familiar.

When Hong Kong was handed over to Beijing twenty years ago, the great worry was that the Western-style democratic freedoms its people enjoyed would be trampled by the Chinese communists. It was less than a decade since the brutal repression of the pro-democracy movement in Mainland China. But if the Communists learned anything from Tiananmen it was to play the long game and keep the guns out of sight.

Beijing is playing the last moves of its long game. How long are the guns going to stay hidden? For now, Beijing has backed off.

For now.

Hong Kong’s Chief Executive, Carrie Lam, reportedly after consulting authorities in Beijing, suspended a bill that would have facilitated extraditions to mainland China. Ms Lam backed down in the face of demonstrations by about a million people in which police used tear gas and rubber bullets against the protesters. Police also took photographs of individual protesters, heightening fears of reprisals.

Air China Magazine’s ‘racist’ guide to London

China’s largest international airline, Air China, (not to be confused with Taiwan’s principle international carrier, China Airlines) has an inflight magazine that throws political correctness completely under the bus by pointing out where tourists shouldn’t go in the UK.

Will the teachers accept a 75% pay cut?

That is seriously suggested, not only for the teachers but for everyone. We have to save the planet and the only way is a 75% pay cut according to UK’s Labour shadow chancellor John McDonnell. McDonnell has suggested that a future Labour government might introduce a 10-hour working week and slash pay by 75 per cent, as part of a radical plan to ‘combat climate change.’

There would be some poetic justice in a savage pay cut for all the teachers who encouraged their pupils to ‘strike for climate’, but I digress.

Delingpole continues:

The problem is – as I never tire of pointing out, because someone has to – the measures being proposed by eco-fascist organisations like Extinction Rebellion and endorsed by their useful idiots in the Labour party will bring little to the planet but misery, poverty and devastation.

Avian fauna are being killed by bat-chomping, bird-slicing eco-crucifixes; whales, dolphins and seals are being killed by offshore eco-crucifixes; orang-utans and other forest creatures are having their habitats destroyed by palm oil plantations being grown to create bio-fuels; American hardwood forests are being chopped up to provide more ‘biofuel’ for the Drax power station; rare earth minerals are being dug in hideously eco-unfriendly conditions in China for electric car batteries and wind turbine parts; and so on and on it goes.

In order to save the planet, the greenies seem to think, we’re going to have to kill it with fake kindness. […]

The last straw

If you have ever wondered how the virtue signalling ban on plastic straws is affecting those who need them, wonder no more. This recent Twitter thread gives us a window into the life of one young woman who just wanted a one little plastic straw!

I was declined a straw at a restaurant this morning. The waitress had one in her apron. As she poured the water I said “excuse me miss can I have a straw?” She said “we can’t just give them out” and walked away.

My dad flagged her down and when she returned to the table, I asked again “miss sorry but I really do need a straw”. She then said “we only give them to the elderly”

I explained that I am disabled, that I have degenerative joint disease in my spine and picking up a full glass to drink causes muscle spasms under my shoulder blades. She met that with “you seemed fine when you walked in”.

5 minutes later, still no straw. Finally, I ask for a manager and the waitress looks pissed as hell but goes to get them. The manager heard me out, handed me a straw, then turned to the waitress and whispered “people like that aren’t worth it just give them the damn straw”
