I like dogs, always went hunting with the farm hound when I was a little fella with my .22.
Nowadays, though, it would be impractical for me to have one. Unlike cats, dogs crave human company and I can’t take pets to my numerous soirees and pestas.
- However, among the many emails I get seeking publicity/ promotion, today this petition came along, and so I offer it for those who wish to sign.

Did you know, every year, on the summer solstice, thousands of dogs are rounded up to be eaten in Yulin, China as part of a Dog Meat Festival? We believe that this cruel “festival” has no place in the 21st century.
There are so many reasons to end this horrific festival — warning, the following information may be upsetting.
Many of the dogs that are killed are stolen household pets or are watchdogs of rural families. Allowing the Dog Meat Festival to continue is like endorsing dog theft, which supplies the dog meat industry.
The Yulin Dog Meat Festival is also a dangerous food safety issue. Dogs sold on the market are sick, poisoned and dying animals. They suffer from horrendous conditions during the long distance, trans-provincial journeys, many days without food and water and may carry contagious disease.
We appeal to you to act in the interest of public health, food safety, animal welfare, and the image of Guangxi and China. The Yulin Dog Meat Festival is a business operation that undermines the national and public interest. The Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region government is at a historical juncture. The Dog Meat Festival must end.
By signing our petition, you’re joining a global movement with like-minded people who want to shut down this heinous festival and trade. In the coming weeks and months, you’ll have the opportunity to be involved in both online and in-person events happening around the world.

Sunday at home, my guest having brought my brunch of gorengan – fried things – thus obviating any need for me to go forth and forage.
And so I got to see Michele Henery, a cute black presenter on Deutsche Welle, whose news programme, Focus on Europe, at least today, looks at stories that don’t just matter but make you think.
- And think positive, notably her first item, about a small independent school in a Paris banlieue.
The banlieues are notorious for disloyal rabbles that rampage and make honest French folk, and even French police, wary of walking around their streets, especially after dark…
Police face banlieue rabble running amok
…so all praise to the people who run this school, where students learn not just the three Rs but discipline and, most importantly, patriotism!
The kids, of all ethnicities and colours, clean the toilets, wear their uniforms proudly, and sing La Marsellaise. A more striking change from the usual ‘banlieue youth’ image is hard to imagine.
And Michelle herself shows admirable insight into what makes migrants a success in their adopted homelands. She was a child of immigrants to the USA and observes how singing the national anthem in class made her feel properly American.
Once she’d opined thus, she invited her tv audience to comment via twitter, or tweet, or one of those things I don’t use, so I commend her now!
I hope endorsement on my conservative blog doesn’t get her into trouble with her leftist bosses. I have often condemned DW’s pinko slant…
…but am obliged to give credit where credit is due.
- Michelle’s next segment was sad to watch but nevertheless well worth watching, a look at the plight of religious minority migrants in Germany, and the shameful indifference of Mama Stasi’s minions to that plight.
We had Nesreen, a Yazidi lady who fled the ISIS rape-gang’s evil caliphate, only to find herself housed in a ‘refugee shelter’ with – guess what – ‘radical Islamists!’ Christians and Yazidis living in refugee hostels are increasingly being victimized by radical Islamist refugees. Security guards often just look the other way. Aid groups are calling for separate housing for Christian, Yazidi and Muslim refugees.
- Inevitably, those primitives have made her life a misery. She tells of threats and the fear among women of even going to the toilet.
- When her husband, housed in another shelter, came to see her, the pig-ignorant savage in the adjacent room began to holler and bang aggressively on the walls, because the visitor might see the pignoramus’s wife unveiled!
What on earth is wrong with Germany that such obnoxious swine are not deported back here they belong.
In case anyone might say Nezreen was making this up, there was a German from the Noah’s Ark charity, who confirmed the intolerable behaviour of the Dark Agers.
Despite repeated complaints and even attempted suicides, ‘the authorities see no reason to intervene.’
That link should let you see the whole of Michele’s show and check I’m offering an accurate account. I hope you agree with my conclusions.
Nezreen should be re-housed with her husband, and replaced in the shariah shelter with Merkel and her rotten heartless lackeys, to experience at first hand the malignant bigots they have insanely imported.
As usual, unable to be over there in The Old Country, I do what I can by publicising the opportunities for those within sight and sound of battle!

Dozens of women stopped in Aceh for straddling motorcycles
That’s the Jakarta Post headline as that sad, sick province up north does its damnedest once more to stoke Islamophobia around the world.
Actually, it also reminds us that ordinary decent Muslim citizens are the most immediate victims of the barbaric rubbish rules that operate on the ‘Verandah of Mecca,’ as the crack-pots who run the place like to call it.
I could even see the need for offering ‘asylum’ status to the people up there, much more validity to any such claim than the thousands of wannabe welfare parasites being almost daily imported into Europe by the Italian Navy!
But UK Home Secretary Theresa May won’t see any need to offer sanctuary to victims of shariah. She has just proclaimed there’s no need to investigate the sexist code, only its ‘misuse!’–
Theresa May says many Britons ‘BENEFIT GREATLY’ from Sharia Law
Her flunkey, Lord Ahmad, issued a statement that an official inquiry “will not be a review of the totality of Sharia law, which is a source of guidance for many Muslims in the UK.” http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/674489/Home-Secretary-Theresa-May-says-Britain-benefits-Sharia-Law
Uh, Your Lordship, if it’s LAW, as you say, it’s not ‘guidance.’ The two are NOT synonymous.
Baroness Cox, who, evidently unlike Mrs. May, actually KNOWS something about shariah law, was quick to assail this sell-out to sectarianism.
She blasted Mrs May’s insistence discrimination against women is only a result of a “misuse” of Sharia teaching, rather than the teaching itself.
“I believe in freedom of religion and I believe that there are aspects of Sharia law that are totally unproblematic.
“If Muslims want to fast, well Christians do that at Lent, if they want to pray five times a day, that’s more than I do.
“But the aspects which are causing such concerns – such as that a man can divorce his wife by saying ‘I divorce you’ three times, that is inherent, the right to ‘chastise’ women is inherent, polygamy is inherent.
Exactly. And Lady Cox could have added the iniquitous sexist inheritance rules. Such a code of ‘laws’ should not be countenanced in any civilised country.
But then Aceh is hardly civilised.
Harassment of women is nothing new in Aceh. The WH shariah gestapo has been at this for years.
Women who fall into the hands of these ghastly goons don’t always get away with a mere warning.
But warnings were apparently all they got this week. Next time, it could be a whipping, by a masked pervert, before a slobbering crowd.
After receiving a warning not to ride motorbikes in the straddle position again, the women were allowed to continue their journeys side-saddle. “We will keep conducting the raids until the prohibition on straddling motorcycles for women is enforced thoroughly,” said the shariah goons’ boss.
Frankly, I just do not understand why they object to girls riding bikes the same way boys do.
That uptight fanatics’ explanation makes no sense.
She looks like a man?
Speaking to the BBC, Mayor Suaidi said: ‘When you see a woman straddle, she looks like a man. But if she sits side-saddle, she looks like a woman.’ : http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2256595/
If they are wearing jeans or smocks or whatever, there’s not much risk of any interesting aurat ( ‘private parts’) being displayed. Unless one accepts the shariah definition of ‘private parts’ – which includes bare shoulders, the God-given hair on women’s heads, knees, thighs…gimme a break!
The report tells us that even women in ‘Islamic clothing’ were stopped for straddling.
A convoy of bikers like this would benefit Aceh greatly.
Meanwhile, the raid also stopped people who were not properly dressed. The officers warned 52 women wearing tight clothes or not wearing the hijab.
Meanwhile, 38 men were netted for wearing shorts.
Aaah, so men’s knees are also an affront? A gesture, maybe, to show the shariah police are an ‘equal opportunities’ agency of oppression?
As I started typing this I was wearing shorts and nothing else. Later, I would don a t-shirt and toddle round to the tukang gado-gado to find my brunch.
Were I to do so in Aceh, I’d risk being arrested and flogged.
THAT’S the reality of shariah law, Mrs. May.
You should outlaw it throughout Britain.
One law for all – British law!
But here in Indonesia, Aceh represents the very heart of darkness….
…and President Jokowi would do Indonesia’s reputation on the world stage a world of good by intervening to oust the primitives and confer freedom on those oppressed people.

A pleasant day, a welcome guest, a good cheap late lunch at the warteg, and now just back from a twilit stroll to the minimart to stock up cigarettes and coffee for tomorrow, another guest due, so no outings planned.
In any case, I’m out and about at least three days in the week ahead, so a spot of relaxation suits my needs.
But I’ve switched on CNN and the news is not conducive to relaxation.
Disgusting but revealing, the tv reports of these thugs aiming violently to disrupt Trump rallies.
A week ago, the ‘protesters’ in Albuquerque threw burning T-shirts, plastic bottles and other items at police officers, injuring several, and toppled trash cans and barricades.
And as we saw, the hoodlum gangs were waving not the Stars and Stripes but MEXICAN flags!
Similarly today, in San Diego, those alien banners were prominently flaunted at the real Americans in the pro-Trump crowd.
Who the hell waves Mexican flags at a ‘protest’ (aka riot) in America?
- If the violent leftist storm-troops, those thugs we saw a week ago, were indeed Mexican, then they have no right whatsoever to intervene in United States elections, neither violently nor non-violently.
- They should sod off back across the border, or be bull-dozed thence.
If, on the other hand, they were US citizens, these revelations of their true allegiance, to a foreign country, should disqualify them from citizenship status.
EuroNews bias was yet again on display this week, a preview, short, thanks be, of their ‘Global Conversation,’ with some American pinko named Russell Banks.
He was obviously a pinko, otherwise why would Euronews have him on? But one must be fair, so, never having heard of the man, I had a glance at wikipedia
There I got the gist of his character, a leftist, yes, with that characteristic race-obsession -‘I’m a white man in a white-dominated, racialized society ‘
Bleating bolshie Banks
…but a damned lazy leftist who once had the “intention of joining Fidel Castro’s insurgent army in Cuba” but instead wound up working in a department store in Lakeland, Florida
Russell’s red hero
..later, he was ‘involved’ with the notorious Students for a Democratic Society, a nasty marxist gang…
….who did all they could to undermine the war effort during the struggle to save South Vietnam from Communism.
And anyone who’d dismiss his anti-democracy activity as merely a youthful folly should turn to the World Socialist Website, a Trotkyist source, true, but, on this issue, factually accurate, and read how Russell Banks disdained the cause of the Charlie Hebdo martyrs.
..Russell Banks and 143 other writers protest free speech award for Charlie Hebdo
A perfect choice for Euronews’ “Global Conversation.” And here’s an extract from the notes I made whilst listening to that ‘conversation’ a couple of mornings ago.
‘How dangerous is Donald Trump,‘ the lisping Euronews hackette begins.
Not ‘What do you think of Donald Trump?
Or even ‘Do you think Donald Trump’s dangerous?‘
No, in the Euronews bint’s narrow mind, his danger is already clear and present, beyond debate, leaving only its extent to discuss.
‘How dangerous!’ As leading a question as she could make it.
‘He’s a maniac,’ came the Castro-fan’s reply.
Brussels must have been overjoyed at Russell’s gibbering on their Pravda-clone programme.
Which you, dear reader, if you live in an EUSSR member-state, are subsidising with your taxes.
Will Euronews EVER have a pro-Trump personality join their inane chat-show?
Will any Euronews hack or hackette ever start an ‘interview’ by asking a conservative American HOW DANGEROUS that wicked witch Hillary Clinton really is?
Don’t hold yer breath!

And here’s more ways you can fight for Britain’s liberation, courtesy of Leave EU
Having touched on the issue of voting fraud more than once…
..it seems I’m not alone in my concerns.
Camoron has made it clear he will lie, cheat and resort to every dirty trick in the book, so fervent is his desperation to keep Britannia enchained to the Fourth Reich his EuroCommissar comrades are intent on building.
And you can bet his Remainiac running-dogs at local level will be emulating his amoral example. So let’s turn the spotlight on yet another way the bad element can achieve their objective.
Require proof of identity to be provided by all voters in the EU Referendum.
More examples have been found of blatant fraud at polling stations where people who have turned up to vote are turned away having been marked as “already voted.” https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/130497
