A Political Blog for Libertarian Conservatives

Welcome to our blog - updated whenever we feel there is something worthwhile to say   -  which is pretty much all the time but is limited by the reality of only 24 hours in each day.

Hazim and Gershom - a parable

 
Thought for the week:
Until civilised people see the difference between "Israel" and "Jew" the will of the uncivilised prevails.

"Protect me master" is the call of the milk-sop, parasite who would trade his liberty for security, understanding the meaning of niether "security" nor "liberty".

Those who value liberty say to their government "Do Not Protect Me", "Protect My Liberty"!

BBC News "The UN's top human rights official has condemned Israel's military actions in the Gaza Strip, saying that war crimes may have been committed."

It is deeply embarrassing that politicians of all parties in the UK continue to condone and encourage the crimes of one side or the other.

Has vote winning become such a perverse objective that rape, murder and war crimes have all become part of the campaign rhetoric.

PC is often claimed to be a curse.
 
We have long refused to call it by its misnomer "Political Correctness". 
 
We prefer "Political Corruptness" as a more accurate descriptor of its negative, damaging and corrosive effects on society.
 
PC, we believe, is the intentional corruption of our language designed to corrupt our culture.

Andrew Allison (Campaign Manager for the Freedom Association) says "An aim of the reshuffle was to divert our gaze from contempt for Parliament" in Conservative Home,

"Contempt" probably wildly understates the feelings that people have for parliament and politicians.

All of us at JK5 mix regularly with Conservative activists. There; contempt has become anger in many parts. Anger at the stupidity of policy that discredits the Party with less than a year to an election. Anger at the arrogance of Ministers that disrespect the people - even loyal members of the Party.

Andrew Mitchel almost certainly did not call anyone "plebs" but voters FEEL that the word accurately describes the attitude politicians have to us all.

"Labour leader Ed Miliband is to promise there will be no return to the tax and spend policies of past Labour governments, in a speech later" reports the BBC.

Yeah, right Ed.

So why not just join the Conservative Party
-  "tax and spend" is the ONLY thing Labour have EVER done.

Anyone still believe that Labour is capable of NOT repeating the "tax and spend" damage it has ALWAYS done to the country?
Well; We have a nice bridge in London you might like to buy.

Politics.co.uk says "Breath of Fresh Air into Education" in their article:

Nicky Morgan: 'Fed up' with teachers not taking responsibility

Our societal taboo on criticising any of the "holy orders" (teachers, police, nurses et al) is a form of PC (Political Corruptness) that stifles any debate that vested interests want suppressed.

It's way past time to remove such taboos and open up full and frank debate on issues in groups that we pay for.

Well done Nicky for moving in that direction.

The notion that all teachers are beyond reproach is arrant nonsense.

One of the big problems that everyone foresaw (except our legislators) was that privately run Academies would inevitably see the emergence of skewed ethos schools that subjected children to indoctrination incompatible with a free society.

Of course all the controversy has been over Islamic schools, but the BBC was quite right to bring the existence of fundamentalist Christian schools to our attention too.

Subjecting impressionable ("vulnerable" if we were talking about paedophilia) children to religious indoctrination of ANY kind should be a crime.

With about 50% of the UK population being  non-religious we must reform education now to give children the right to a secular education.

The BBC insists on parroting words from LibDem politicians who clearly don't have a good command of the English language.

The Tory policy to "reassert the authority of Parliament" was yesterday reported with the title: "Tories plan human rights challenge".

Today (the article with the same ID stamp 28339686) has the title "Tory 'head bangers' have won on human rights, says Nick Clegg"

Either way; do you think the BBC has an agenda here?

 

18 July 2014

Adrian Davis, cybercrime expert and European director of (ISC)2, the world's largest association of infosecurity professionals, says:

"We have seen that even the biggest internet and phone companies are vulnerable to online attacks . . .

the emergency bill extends RIPA . . .
 increases the amount of our personal communications that must be
 . . .
  targets for hacker groups."

A PLEA . . .

One of our Sovereignty campaigns is to see off the iniquitous Extradition Act 2003.

A sickening travesty of justice, a monument to the laziness and incompetence of legislators and, in our opinion, a statute that prompts questions of far reaching inappropriate behaviour by politicians.

Please help us get the message across to MPs that we cannot tolerate such abuses of our sovereingty.

JK5 International Editor, Keren, teams up with guest writer Jim Tucker to add some detail ...

The blogs and social media are buzzing today with the outrage of people just burgled.

Yesterday we were all burgled!  #DRIP has stolen an important part of our freedom; an element of liberty that many of our ancestors died for in several wars.

How DARE Ms May and her anti-Conservative group not only besmirch the memory and the bravery of those who died for freedom but comprehensively trash the Conservative Party's core philosophy?

We should all ask Why? Why does someone work so hard to rise to the top of the Party then cause the party so much damage?

Please support "Dont Spy On Us"

Most important focus today is #DRIP. Read The DRIP Myth List.

Privacy, a prerequisite to Liberty, is under threat!

Privacy is a KEY Conservative value and those who seek to eradicate privacy should have NO PLACE in the Conservative Party. 

The vote is a disgraceful betrayal of Conservative values. You are not there, Ms May, to "protect us"; you are there to "protect out liberty".

Phillip Hammond to the Foreign Office. Excellent! Phillip is that rare combination in Westminster - a statesman of towering intellect AND common sense.

William "nothing to hide, nothing to fear" Hague is gone.

There was a time when almost everyone admired the USA and looked to them for guidance and example. Today I interviewed a friend who claimed  "My beloved country of birth is now the most despised nation on Earth and even many of my countrymen are ashamed to be American."

A new poll shows that a staggering 44% of Americans say they "... didn't often feel proud to be American."

Our International editor Keren examines this phenomenon ...

Father in court to test ban on term-time holidays.

Mr Gove has done some really good things for education in this country.  His failure to recognise the difference between truancy and family values is not his best moment and should be roundly condemned accordingly.

Guest writer Jim Tucker elaborates ...
9 July 2014

BBC gets 2392 comments on article "Emergency phone and internet data laws to be passed".  That's got to be close to a record.  Comments are overwhelmingly against the proposals, against snooping and FOR Liberty.

Many commenters are trotting out the old "nothing to hide, nothing to fear" chestnut - a Kafkaesque quote that Joseph Goebbels used repeatedly to justify death camps and extermination.

Jasmine, our Liberty editor, looks into this...
