Tommy Robinson

Ezra Levant, at the request of TR himself, travelled to London to report on Tommy's appeal which was presented in court today.  We chipped in to help get Ezra to the UK.

Here are his video reports.

Sounds encouraging so far.

A few amusing bits from the Twitterverse:



And...this one is for lewy.  How does something that random just happen.  And how can someone just be randomly there to photograph.  Unless, it's a set up...

I think I just lost one of my (previously) two remaining brain cells.

How's that again?

In 2003, President Bush authorized an attack on Iraq because of that country's arsenal of "Weapons of Mass Destruction." US intelligence services said Iraq had weapons of mass destructions. The intelligence services of just about all of American's allies said Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.

Now it is generally considered that Iraq did not have weapons of mass destruction. This was said to be a failure on the part of Western intelligence agencies, especially those of the United States. In fact, this was looked as as one more intelligence failure that came to light after 9/11.

A former British intelligence agent help prepare a fraudulent dossier as a political weapon to use against Donald Trump in the 2016 election. This dossier was used, by American intelligence agencies, to get warrants from the FISA court against a low level person associated with the Trump campaign. While this person did not personally work with Trump, this was a high level warrant that authorized spying into all aspects of that person's life. In fact, this warrant authorized spying into all aspects of the lives of anyone with whom this person communicated. If you were the president of this person's child's school's PTA and he sent you an email, your entire existence could come under the scrutiny of the United States intelligence community.

President Trump meets with Vladimir Putin. In public remarks, Trump does not speak highly of the American intelligence community.

Now leftists and never Trumpers are coming out of the woodwork saying that the President has committed treason.

Leftists, who have long considered Joe McCarthy as an evil person for trying to ferret out Soviet (Russian) involvement in trying to subvert the United States, are now howling about how Russia is trying to subvert the United States. RINO's, who are more concerned about being invited to the right cocktail parties, are howling in harmony with the leftists. I saw a post on Facebook today from Mitt Romney condeming Trump for meeting with Putin and not speaking in support of the American intelligence apparatus (I like these post from Romney because of the comments, of which at least 75% tell him to shut up in some form or another.)

If Trump spoke from a distance of how bad Russia is, his political enemies would condemn him for trying to start a war. When Trump meets with Putin to try and facilitate a peaceful co-existence, his political enemies say he is in Putins pocket and is working against the United States. Is it any wonder that the American public no longer cares what any of those people have to say?

It has been years since I saw the movie Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. I can't help but think that this could be remade as Mr. Trump Goes to Washington.

If the elite want a revolution, they can start one very easily -- just not in the way they have in mind.

What the....

I think he exceeded the two martini lunch maximum by a multitudinous amount.  What an utter disgrace.  I love the way Donald and Melania shoot him and his minions a passing look of disgust and continue on without breaking their stride.

And what the hell is the "entertainment" supposed to be?

"Stumbles" doesn't even begin to describe it.


So, I reactivated my Twitter account.  I had forgotten that I had opened a Twitter account in 2007.  I do believe a certain male presence, on a blog we used to frequent, gave us the head's up vis a vis the Twitter and that is how I happened to sign up.

Anyhoo, I saw a lot of Twitter stuff via other blogs that I wanted to discover more about, that's why I reactivated.  I have to say it is mind bogglingly time consuming and I can't possibly read everything that comes across my feed, but, I have been exposed to a ton of useful, educational, and informative info.

Please email me if you want my Twitter handle.  Or if you want to email me yours.

If any of you decide to dip  your  toes in the Twitterbath, here are some feeds I recommend:

James Woods

Tim Newman

Stephen Green

The White House

Fox News

Dennis Miller

Mark Steyn

Tucker Carlson

I See Pigs....Flying

WTAF?  Am I imagining this...

Did the NYT proof read this prior to publication?

An anachronism in its own time.

Sometimes information comes along that is tickles the trivia bone. While the information is of no great importance, it is still interesting.

I had known the song "Penetration" by the Pyramids for years. My oldest brother had recorded it off of the radio but I had no idea of the name of the song or the name of the group. All I knew was that it was a surf instrumental that sounded like someone took the staves from "Pipeline," turned them upside down, and played it.
I found out the name of the tune in about 1980 when I found a copy of the 45 while searching through the store room of the radio station where I worked.

From a musical history perspective it is a very interesting song. Much of what I now know about the song I have learned since my recent post about Digitally Extracted Stereo.
I had heard a long time ago that this was the last surf instrumental to hit high (number 18) on the Billboard chart on March 14, 1964 -- seven weeks after "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" hit number 1 and one week before "She Loves You" hit the top spot.

That Beatles connection is significant. While this video is not very clear, you can't help but noticing something about the members of the band. They seem to be the antithesis of the "long haired" Beatles. Their heads are shaved.

There is another thing about this video that may not seem of great significance today. Notice the rhythm guitar player, Willie Glover, second from the left. Surfing, and surf music, in California was a pretty lily-white affair. Glover is black. Again, nothing of great significance here, but some social-musical-historical perspective that, while of no great importance, is an ingredient of where we are today.

Hope you get a kick out of this information as much as I did.

A funny thing happened on the way to the Table.

There are, or were, features that would send an email if a new post or comment was made on the Table. I depended on that to let me know if something was going on here. I would then take a look and then read and comment. I just recently discovered that something happened. The features disappeared or were disabled. It came as a shock that several posts and a number of comments had been made that I had missed. I guess it is my fault for depending on technology. Or is it part of a nefarious plot!? This is just a word to let you know that I will try and watch things more diligently and keep up with events on the Table!
