    Last Year’s St. Patrick’s Day Question? Did We Get An Answer? 

    It’s a good question…

    A Question On St.Patrick’s Day!

    ….and deserves a thorough answer, which I don’t think it’s so far had!

    Meanwhile, a Happy St. Patrick’s Day to any readers celebrating the holiday.

    I have to confess I’ve been too busy today to spend time composing anything new on Ulster’s fight for self-determination, which, of course, Patrick…

    So You Think I’m Too Into Ulster? 

    I get that now and then.

    Folks in foreign parts, like here in Indonesia, or India, or other non-English-speaking countries, where I seem to have a fair number of readers, are not, I’m told (though not told by many here!) interested in Ulster-Scots / loyalist issues.

    But I shrug that off, and there’s just one reason.



    As I told many of my Jakarta students, over coffee after class, if they wanted to ask about life in The Old Country, the disloyal minority in British Ulster have not a shred of right on their side.

    Sinn Fein and the IRA are indelibly evil.




    The disloyal minority in British Ulster are…

      How true your words are, Ross, and we get more of their arrogance rammed down our throats every day.
      It turns out that another Shinner at Stormont misused her ‘ministerial’ car to attend the state funeral they staged for that IRA sh-te last month.
      Like pigs in the trough, over and over.

    Bravo, Mr. Bryson – Ulster Will Be Right To Fight! 

    I saw earlier this afternoon in what is arguably a foreign newspaper – with a British address, but a rag which overtly appeals to disloyals…

    Banners fit only for buning!


    …whose hearts beat faster at the sight of an alien flag…


    – that Ulster loyalists are getting organised.


    Image result for bryson loyalists constitution


    A blogger named Jamie Bryson called a meeting and all manner of the kindred came together, promising they will be withdrawing from all “cross-community and cross-border work and will totally disengage from the Irish Government.”

    They have also said they will engage in a “war of attrition” designed to “frustrate the operation of all cross community and cross border initiatives”.

    They need to, as a matter of urgency!

    The Bojo Fake-Brexit is a shameful betrayal of the Best of the British, the loyal folk across the water, and they are entitled to resist it in any way they think fit.

    No Surrender!

    Mind Your Erse! Varadkar Minces Into Ulster’s Internal Affairs! 

    What will grab headlines is the first gay Irish prime minister’s  decision to attend a breakfast event, as part of Belfast’s gay pride festival on Saturday morning.   https://euobserver.com/uk-referendum/138686

    When foreign heads of government visit the UK, are they given free rein to pick and choose what events they attend?

    I doubt it.

    They may, and no doubt do, indicate preferences, but their itinerary is surely subject to the approval of the British Government.


    Eire’s ‘gay’ leader flaunts his true colours


    It is unimaginable that approval would be forthcoming for any alien leader to wade, or, in this case, mince, into a ‘festival’ the essence of which is all about subverting the law…


    Hasil gambar untuk arrogance


    …especially if the law is the subject of intense debate between parties, and even more especially if the party offended by the arrogant intrusion is key to the survival in power of the UK Government!

    Next he’ll be telling Ulster’s British majority they must bow down to the Sinn Fein/IRA demand that Erse (Gaelic Irish) be made an official language there, despite the fact that only a tiny percentage speak it.


    Or has he already stick his insolent snout into that issue?

      Youre on fine form today, Ross.
      We get so sick and tired of these foreign republcans wandering into our country and interfering. Eire’s got its wierd weddings, voted for them. So why does Little Leo think he’s got any right to nag here.
      That’s a bad neighbour for you. .

    Pin-Head Pants-Down! A Racist Slur On Ulster Brits 

    Paddy Pants-Down was always something of a dork, as we have noted before.



    Paddy Pants-Down Rides Again, Enraged By Democracy! 

    But his latest racist slur against to Ulstermen –“you never let the Ulstermen get their hands on the nation” –  which, in this egalitarian day and age, insults Ulsterwomen too – has provoked stern rebukes from patriots there.



    Not least TUV’s Jim Alister.

    “I found it deeply insulting, indeed I found it racist. To pick out people on the basis of cultural identity and say because you are an Ulsterman you can’t be in government is outrageous.

    Too true.

    Imagine if somebody said that about British politicians of Scots, or Welsh origins?

    Lloyd George, Alec Hume, Gordon Brown…all would be excluded if the ‘Pants-Down Principle’ were made law. Maybe the UK could have been better without their ministerial ministrations, but that’s NOT the point.

    To brand the best and most loyal British as unfit to hold the reins of government responsibility is GROSSLY offensive.

    Jim’s entirely justified indignation was echoed by Ulster Unionist chief whip Steve Aiken:

    “Paddy Ashdown’s comments were offensive, crass, and totally hypocritical..


    Jim concluded his denunciation by saying that the effort to put together an arrangement supported by a majority of MPs was the constitutional way to do things.

    “It’s called democracy!”

    But then Pants-Down detests democracy.

    ..the peer and former Liberal Dem leader  – branded Brexiteers as “dispossessed and voiceless” as he compared the rise of Hitler in Nazi Germany in the 1930s to the referendum result.                                            http://www.express.co.uk/news/politics/749212/PaddyAshdown-Brexit-1930s-Adolf-Hitler


    One must assume the fifty-plus percent of the electorate who dared disagree with the Liberal Democrat dork are thereby relegated, along with Ulsterfolk, to the ranks of those not entitled to participate in the governance of their country?

    • Reid Nesbit 03:33 on June 21, 2017 Permalink | Reply

      Ashdown is a waste of space. He should be told to shut up but he’s nothing compared to Corbyn.
      Did you see that skunk weep at the mosque in Finsbury Park?
      Corbyn is rotten to the core, I would say in his soul but the man has no soul or if he once had he sold it to the devil..
      How many times did he ever shed even one tiny wee tear for the victims of his IRA heroes?
      He needs to be prevented from ever getting near the doors of 19 Downing Street..

    Lingo Largesse -“Don’t Trust DUP!” Ulster’s Jim Speaks Out! 

     If you’ve ever been across the sea to Ireland…

    …to that part of the island which arrogantly claims the name ‘Republic of Ireland’ for territory which only occupies part of the geographical area which the name ‘Ireland’ covers…

    • 3c1b1-get_real_big

    …then you will know that only a minority, quite a small minority, speak Erse in day-to-day life.

    Even less so for Northern Ireland  – British Ulster.

    But the disloyal minority in Ulster, which sees the old language as a tribal totem, has been getting large sums to fund its survival, largesse much larger than that given to Ulster-Scots, the old language of most of the Brits there – including my own ancestors, who dwelt in places like Kilrea, and Holly Hill .

    And the largest ‘unionist’ party, the DUP, has been in collaboration with Sinn Fein, the treason party, to facilitate this discriminatory practice.

    Even as the undemocratic ‘power-sharing’ deal stumbles towards an unexpected election…

    IRA Murder-Gangster Quits – A Golden Opportunity! 

    …this linguistic scandal has erupted again, TUV’s excellent Jim Alister has denounced the latest antics on the issue, a DUP sell-out on a previous proposal modestly to trim the Erse-promotion budget, as a “humiliating climb-down.”

    • Mr Allister said: “Why was the money not there before Christmas but suddenly available when the DUP are desperate to avoid an election? Did he find it down the back of a boiler?

    “The DUP is in concession mode and this £50,000, which Mr Givan defended withdrawing on the basis that Irish already receives vastly more money than Ulster Scots just 24 hours ago, is just the start….


    …“What else will they roll over on after an election to get their jobs back? An Irish Language Act? The Maze? Allowing Sinn Fein/IRA rewrite the past?http://www.newsletter.co.uk/news/tuv-leader-rounds-on-dup-after-humiliating-climb-down-on-irish-language-funding-1-7769403

    Absolutely right!

    And if an election is held, we must echo Jim’s next observation.

    “The best insurance policy against further moves to appease Sinn Fein/IRA demands is a number one vote for TUV in the election.”

      They’re after our country, and always have been. ever since the UK was partitioned by Sinn Fein nearly a hundred years ago. That crowd in Dublin were never content with having their republic, they have murdered and bombed us to try and force us under their flag.
      But while Ulster may be just a wee country, we’re game. They’ll not get us without a fight, and if Ulster can still fight like the Ulstermen did at the Battle of the Somme, that means they’ll never get us.
      No Surrender!
      And thanks for your support.

    Obama Snubs America's Finest – Ulster-Scots Heritage Un-Proclaimed? 

    The vibrant culture and rich heritage of the Irish people shaped many of the earliest chapters of America’s story.

    That comes from the latest Obama ‘Proclamation’ – Irish-American Heritage Month.

    ‘The Irish people?’

    So Spaniards and Portuguese will now be honoured as ‘The Iberian people?’ Danes, Norwegians and Swedes as ‘The Scandinavian people?’ Is this an intended affront to the Ulster-Scots, or ignorance  of the fact that TWO peoples live on the island of Ireland?

    How dare Obama obliterate by fiat the fact that it was the Ulster-Scots who largely made America, while the Gaelic-Irish did not arrive in significant numbers until long after that?


    obamalizard  Wrong, you charlatan!



     “If defeated elsewhere then I will make my final stand for liberty with the Scotch-Irish of my native Virginia” ~ George Washington


    It was the Ulster-Scots, also referred to in US history as Scotch-Irish, who played a key role in the War of Independence.

    They may have come from what Obama calls, in his special proclamation, the Emerald Isle, but they were quite explicit in declaring themselves a separate and very distinct people from the Gaelic-Irish.

    I quote one pioneer leader’s response to having his flock described as ‘a parcel of Irish’ by a local official on arrival in the New World.


    “We are surprised to hear ourselves termed Irish people, when we so frequently ventured our all for the British Crown and liberties, and are always ready to do the same when required.


    We are people of the Scottish race in Ulster who have given our strength and substance to uphold the British connection.there. It is hard in this new land to be identified with the very people to whom we have always been opposed.”


    Certainly there wasn’t then and isn’t now any shared vision between the two.

    The pioneers from Ulster and their heroic offspring, who included Robert E Lee and Ulysses S Grant did NOT consider themselves sons of Erin. another tendentious phrase calculated to confuse.



    The Manchurian’s reference to the courage and perseverance of the Irish-American community  was perhaps included as a tongue-in-cheek salute to the courage and perseverance of Edward ‘Girl-Drowner’ Kennedy at Chappaquiddick.

    Edward Kennedy Obituary

    Which one was saying ‘I’ve killed more women than you, buddy!’


    Kennedy, to be fair, was not exactly an archetype of his ethnic group; there have been many grand American patriots of Gaelic-Irish origin.

    Another US Senator comes to mind, a man whose REAL courage in the face of a vicious witch-hunt was in such marked contrast to the vile character of ‘Teddy Bare’ – I refer of course to Joe McCarthy, of Wisconsin.

    Another admirable member of that ethnic group was Senator Pat McCarran.


    • Ronald_Wilson_Reagan_Cowboy_Poet

    And let’s not forget the greatest President ever, Ronald Reagan.


    But there have also been many of that breed who have shamelessly applauded the Sinn Fein/IRA murder gang.

    Not so much Sons of Erin but Spawn of Eire…

    … the name plastered on the postage stamps of that country along with a map braying its imperialist aspirations to annex a smaller neighbour nation.

     Back to Obama’s tribute to these brave souls who put their faith in the ideas at the heart of our democracy…




    …except for those who aped Kennedy and passed round their leprechaun hats to raise funds in  Boston bars for ethnic cleansing by Sinn Fein’s murder-gangs, warring down the democratic principle of self-determination for their neighbours whilst demanding it for themselves.

    The klutz cannot possible be unaware, when he blathers about how early immigrants from Ireland shaped our founding documents…


     ‘Call it not an American Rebellion,it is nothing more or less than a Scotch-Irish Presbyterian Rebellion.’ Captain Johann Heinricks,German mercenary serving with the British c.1780

    …that the signatories of the Declaration of Independence included many Ulster-Scots – the Gaelic-Irish, Kennedy’s ethnic brethren, descended on America in numbers only after the 19th century famine.

    Nor should Texans forget where Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie and the famous Houston hailed from!


    If Obama wanted to learn a little, he could study these two books, the first written by an honest Gaelic-Irish historian bearing witness to the achievements of a people other than his own…

    NO Post Today on RRA! NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO……….. 

    Good Morning, from Jakarta!




    Britannia Forever!


    For as far back as I have been able to track my family history, we have been loyal to our British heritage.

    So for this day, 18th September, 2014, I have no other issues I wish to post on – only this message to the people in the land where once we dwelt and whence we wandered forth, two centuries or more in Ulster, near another two in Canada…

      I can’t understand this, or I can but I can’t believe it, or I must, because it is happening, today, and our country is possibly disappearing from the world map, and it was Britain, including Scots as well as English (and Wales and Northern Ireland) that contributed so much to the way that map looks.
      Myself, ancestry Scots, English, a bit of other, grew up so proud of being British, I will not sleep well tonight, thinking what we maybe will wake up to tomorrow morning.
