British Landlord Defends Ban on “coloured people”

PROPERTY OWNER FERGUS WILSON.

Fergus Wilson has a problem with renting homes to Asian Indians. The problem is the stench they leave behind when they move out.

Curry!

Fergus is being demonized in the press and investigated by the government because he wants to keep his properties in rentable condition.

That’s the tyranny of egalitarianism at work in Britain.

A buy-to-let tycoon facing a public backlash over his ban on “coloured” tenants has said: “I would do it again.”

Fergus Wilson has banned “coloured” people from renting his homes because he claims they leave them smelling of curry, costing him thousands of pounds after they leave.

The Equality and Human Rights Commission has pledged to investigate the matter.

Mr Wilson insisted he was “not racist” and said his move was an “economic decision”.

He said his stance was no different from his ban on letting his properties to smokers and dog owners.

The 69-year-old said: “There has been much support for the stance I have taken. I do not apologise for it. Faced with the same circumstances, I would do it again.”

His ban came to light in a leaked email listing Mr Wilson’s instructions to a letting agent for potential tenants, including: “No coloured people because of the curry smell at the end of the tenancy.”

The landlord, who owns hundreds of properties in Kent and is thought to be Britain’s biggest buy-to-let investor, has also banned plumbers from renting his homes – claiming he had been ripped off in the past.

He said he was happy to rent to “negroes” as “they haven’t generated a curry smell at the end of the tenancy”.

But he said he was “wary” of letting to Indians after losing more than £12,000 in rent and re-carpeting costs over a six-month period because one of his properties smelled of curry.

He said: “If you want to sell your house to a market mainly composed of white British purchasers, then you considerably reduce your chances of selling by having a house that smells of curry.”

Mr Wilson said the leaked email was from August last year, pre-dating his current letting criteria for 2017, drawn up last December.

Anti-racism group Hope Not Hate described Mr Wilson as “the unacceptable face of the housing crisis” and compared him to the racist bigot Alf Garnett from BBC sitcom Till Death Us Do Part.

Paywalls: The Bane of the Blogger

If you do much reading of online content, you’ve probably had the experience of a major website blocking your reading, asking you to subscribe in order to read an article.

The New York Times allows 10 free articles a month. So far in March, I’ve accessed 9 articles (one by accidentally clicking a link to another article).

The Washington Post has a similar “soft paywall.” I can find some of their articles at nola.com, which is why you’ll see me sourcing from that New Orleans news site from time to time.

Other sites wall off “premium content,” but allow unlimited access to regular stories. The Wall Street Journal is an example.

Libertarian writer Gary North brings up the significance of the paywall issue in this piece at Lew Rockwell.

On the evening of March 27, I clicked a link to an article in The Washington Post. Within seconds, the page went blurry, and I got an ad asking me to pay for a subscription.

I then went to the home page. I could see the headlines for all of the articles, and all of the headlines were hotlinks. I clicked on several articles, and the same thing happened again. The article went blurry, and up popped an advertisement asking me to pay for a subscription.

I rejoiced. I saw this as the suicide of The Washington Post.

Approximately seven hours later, I was back online. I found a Washington Post story on Google News. I clicked through. Lo and behold, I could read it. It did not get blurry. No advertisement popped up asking me to pay for a subscription. What a shame! The marketing department had come to its senses. The Left-wing digital rag would survive.

Basically, somebody in marketing swallowed a whole bottle of sleeping pills. Then, probably watching a collapse of readership within hours, somebody in authority pulled back and called 911. The paramedics got there in time. Too bad.

The Left-wing media are desperate. They find that liberal readers will not pay for the Left-wing spin that the media provide.

The Los Angeles Times continues to block access to its articles. It demands that you subscribe. But nobody needs to read The Los Angeles Times. You can find articles on other sites that are up-to-date that cover the same topics, and you don’t have to pay for them. Maybe there are a few local stories that you would like to read, but they are not life and death. You really don’t have to read them. Meanwhile, for anything that applies to anything outside of Los Angeles or California politics, there is always some other newspaper website that is offering some version of the story that the Los Angeles Times is blocking. This is economic reality. There is nothing that editors and marketing departments can do about it.

Why should I pay to have the Washington Post or any other mainstream media outlet propagandize me? Now you know why I rarely source from paywall sites.

Official Trailer: Get Me Roger Stone

Opinions about Roger Stone are flying fast and furious on youtube. From the youtube information box, we learn:

Published on Mar 29, 2017

The whole world was shocked by the rise Donald Trump, but there was one man who had been plotting it for years: Roger Stone. Diving deep into the mind of the master manipulator, Get Me Roger Stone provides a raw perspective on the transformation of American politics. Coming exclusively to Netflix on May 12, 2017.

President Donald Trump seems to have distanced himself from the controversial Stone, who has used the word “Negro” and thus gotten himself banned from CNN and MSNBC. Stone remains close to Alex Jones.

Wikipedia

n the first grade, Stone claims, he broke into politics to further John F. Kennedy’s presidential campaign: “I remember going through the cafeteria line and telling every kid that Nixon was in favor of school on Saturdays… It was my first political trick”.[17]

When he was a junior and vice president of the student government at a high school in northern Westchester County, New York, he manipulated the ouster of the president and succeeded him. Stone recalled how he ran for election as president for his senior year:

“I built alliances and put all my serious challengers on my ticket. Then I recruited the most unpopular guy in the school to run against me. You think that’s mean? No, it’s smart.”[18]

Given a copy of Barry Goldwater’s Conscience of a Conservative, Stone became a convert to conservatism as a child and a volunteer in Goldwater’s 1964 campaign. In 2007, Stone indicated that he was a staunch conservative but with libertarian leanings.[17]

During the 2016 election cycle, Stone was banned from appearing on CNN and MSNBC after making a series of offensive Twitter posts disparaging other television personalities.[60] Stone specifically referred to a CNN commentator as an “Entitled Diva Bitch” and imagined her “killing herself”, and called another CNN personality a “stupid negro” and a “fat negro”.[61]

Stone’s Tweets tend to be combative:

Huma was Asked to Plan Hillary’s Funeral

How is Hillary being kept alive? With injections of the blood of aborted babies? Monkey glands? Vitamins?

At least someone had the sense to realize that Hillary would want a big sendoff to Hell to meet her maker.

New York Post

A long-time aide to Hillary Clinton sought to map out her funeral — and Bill Clinton’s — in 2010 because “planning is best done when they are still with us,” according to an email released on Wednesday by Judicial Watch.

Capricia Marshall, who was chief of protocol for the State Department when Hillary Clinton served as secretary of state, wrote to Huma Abedin, Doug Band and Cheryl Mills on Feb. 23, 2010, saying “everytime someone significant passes, I am flooded with requests” about the Clintons’ arrangements.

“Planning is necessary and best done when they are still with us,” she wrote to top Clinton aide Abedin.

“As well, Huma, I would make the same suggestion to you — for her it will be a little different … And once affirmed it will be very hard for someone to deny the type of ceremony she wanted — as well I understand that the President can request certain arrangements for her that she/her rep cannot (ie if you want the motorcade to go through DC — stop somewhere),” Marshall wrote in one email

She told the aides she needed to contact the military to prepare for the funerals — “as Protocol has a lot to do with planning, notification etc.”

Judicial Watch, a government watchdog group, released 1,184 pages of emails on Wednesday.

Another message from March 2010 shows the level of tension that existed among some Clinton advisers when Band asked Abedin to follow through with a request by Chelsea Clinton to set up a White House tour for a Haitian-American sailor from the USS Comfort.

“I don’t want to get cross wise with cdm [Cheryl Mills] on anything Haiti related,” Abedin replied.

Three minutes later she wrote again.

“Have you met Cheryl Mills,” Abedin asked in all caps about Hillary Clinton’s former chief of staff when she was secretary of state. “You have no idea.”

Band replied, “Good point.”

“She will kill the tour if she find out i set it up …,” Abedin wrote back.

“Wow,” Band replied.

The fascinating world of Hillary Clinton leaves no doubt that we dodged a big bullet by rejecting her quest for the presidency.

Propaganda 101: Bring out the so-called victims of mean man Trump. This is likely to backfire because once Mexicans south of the border see it, they’ll get the message that they better damn well stay in their own country.

Here are a few of the many replies, which are all over the place in terms of reacting to the girl and her father’s deportation.

British PM May to fire starting gun on Brexit

Divorce between a man and woman can sometimes be a complicated business.

According to Reuters, Britain’s divorce from the European Union (EU) will be long and messy.

Does it really have to be that way or are politicians making it more complicated than it needs to be in order to justify their salaries? I don’t know the ultimate answer to the question, but given what we know, I smell a rat.

Excerpt from Reuters

Prime Minister Theresa May will file formal Brexit divorce papers on Wednesday, pitching the United Kingdom into the unknown and triggering years of uncertain negotiations that will test the endurance of the European Union.

Nine months after Britons voted to leave, May will notify EU Council President Donald Tusk in a letter that the UK really is quitting the bloc it joined in 1973.

The prime minister, an initial opponent of Brexit who won the top job in the political turmoil that followed the referendum vote, will then have two years to settle the terms of the divorce before it comes into effect in late March 2019.

“Now that the decision has been made to leave the EU, it is time to come together,” May will tell lawmakers, according to comments supplied by her office.

“When I sit around the negotiating table in the months ahead, I will represent every person in the whole United Kingdom – young and old, rich and poor, city, town, country and all the villages and hamlets in between,” May will say.

On the eve of Brexit, May, 60, has one of the toughest jobs of any recent British prime minister: holding Britain together in the face of renewed Scottish independence demands, while conducting arduous talks with 27 other EU states on finance, trade, security and a host of other complex issues.

The outcome of the negotiations will shape the future of Britain’s $2.6 trillion economy, the world’s fifth biggest, and determine whether London can keep its place as one of the top two global financial centers.

For the EU, already reeling from successive crises over debt and refugees, the loss of Britain is the biggest blow yet to 60 years of efforts to forge European unity in the wake of two devastating world wars.

Its leaders say they do not want to punish Britain. But with nationalist, anti-EU parties on the rise across the bloc, they cannot afford to give London generous terms that might encourage other member states to follow its example and break away.

May’s notice of the UK’s intention to leave the bloc under Article 50 of the EU’s Lisbon Treaty is due to be hand-delivered to Tusk in Brussels by Tim Barrow, Britain’s permanent representative to the EU.

May, who on Tuesday signed the Brexit letter and spoke to German Chancellor Angela Merkel about the future talks, will update the British parliament on Wednesday while Tusk is due to give a briefing to reporters.

The Brexit letter is expected to seek to set a positive tone for the talks and recap 12 key points which May set out as her goals in a speech on Jan. 17, EU officials said.
