The new alternative to Twitter, better than GAB.

MINDS.COM

Forget Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Blogger or any of the others.

Forget censorship, rules and regulations.

Some guys in America have built a Social Media site which protects the rights of Free Speech.

It is in opensource which means you can demand the code and if you are code literate, you can check to make sure there are no back doors. Then compile it yourself. Hundreds have done this already.

For additional safeguards, nobody can interfere with the program (even the directors) that has already been coded in.

The best way to describe it is to say it is a cross between Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.

Although a newcomer to the social media world, it has already attracted 1.3 million users.

When you use it, whether to add content, read others' contributions, reply or interact in any way you are awarded tokens. You can use this to put your contributions in front of upto 5,000 other users.

I am a contributer with a monthly subscription but this is completely unnecessary and is not required. But I wanted to help. Anyone can be verified if they can prove who they are. I am.

After only a couple of weeks I already have 487 followers, and my contributions have been seen over 42,000 times.

This is more suited to USA #MAGA people and UK Brexiteers as the left will be more frightened of joining uncensored social media where they get nowhere when they are offended!

But, you need to spend a little time on it as there is so much to see and do. If I can get to grips in two weeks at 79, you should do better, unless you are over 79 of course!

If you decide to give it a try, look me up. My handle is @AmpersUK there.

What will happen with the Boris Johnson investigation by the Prime Minister?

Boris should not, in my view, and in the view of hunbdreds of thousannds of Tory Voters, apologise. After all, back in 2013, a Moslem woman journalist compared the Hijab to a post box, in an article in the Guardian.

Some people are saying May is going to push for a suspension, long enough for her to hold a leadership contest without him. She hates him so much, she’d rather run the risk of losing – rather than losing to him.

However, this will infuriate the Tory voters so much than members will withold their membership fee by leaviing and rather than vote for the Conservatives vote for the new crop of Brexit parties starting up, or even join and vote for UKIP.

If she decides that is too risky, she may just suspend him and carry one, or find some other punishment for him. But, as he is now a back-bencher, her choices are rather limited.

Mrs May is not a fool and she is not as stupid as many imaging. Everything is calculated to keep us into the EU in such a way that a future PM needs only a tiny tweak to make us full members again.

I think there is only one question to ask the Tory party and that is; “How many of your MPs, including Cabinet Members, are accepting bribes from the George Sorus organisation, the EU, or the bankers (Morgan, Rockafeller or Rothchild) to keep us in the EU”?

I’m off to China soon for a few weeks, so it seems appropriate to mention a Chinese curse here: “May you live in interesting times”.

Dear reader, we are living in those interesting times!”

The Burka kerfuffle with Boris Johnson


The Moslem Burka

What a lot of hooha about Boris Johnson’s comments! The Burka or Hijab is a garment aimed either of Moslem men subjecting their women to torment or as a weapon to terrorise the inhabitants of Europe and America. There is a third reason which I will devote a whole paragraph to later.

Why do I say “ subjecting their women to torment”? This is because the garment is either black or in the case of the Hijab, darkish blue. In the sun, these clothes contain the heat and the woman suffers much more than their menfolk who wear lighter clothing to reflect the sun.

Why do I say “ a weapon to terrorise the inhabitants of Europe”? This is simple, many, including myself, see these people and wonder if they are wearing a suicide vest under the cloak. Or even that it may be a man hiding a Kalashnikov under the cloak.

The third reason is quite illuminating. It is not only well known, but obvious in Europe that Moslem men cannot keep “it” in their pants and many of them indulge in their favourite passtime, rape. Wiser women wear these garments so as not to excite Moslem men in their company, or even Moslem strangers walking down the street.

Many Moslem countries are now banning the facce covering garments, it is not only the west who are keen to;

Banning the burqa

Why more countries are outlawing the full-face veil
LAST June, a few months after Chadian forces had crossed into Nigeria to fight the Islamist insurgents of Boko Haram, two suicide-bombers detonated their belts in N’Djamena, Chad’s capital, killing more than 30 people. Two days later Chad’s government banned the wearing of the burqa, the Muslim woman’s covering that hides even the eyes. Henceforth, said the prime minister, security forces could “go into the markets… seize all the burqas on sale and burn them”. Those spotted in such “camouflage” would be “arrested, tried and sentenced after summary proceedings.” Heavy-handed as that sounds, several other sub-Saharan governments have followed suit. A month after Chad’s ban, Cameroon did the same in its northernmost region following suicide-bombings by people clad in burqas. Now the ban has been extended to five of Cameroon’s ten provinces, including its two biggest cities. Niger’s government has banned the garment in Diffa, a southern region that has also been hit by Boko Haram. And late last year Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari, a Muslim, said that a ban even on the hijab, which shrouds a woman’s head and chest but leaves her face on show, may be necessary if bombings persist.
Even countries unharmed by Islamist terror are banning the burqa. Last year Congo-Brazzaville barred it in public places to “prevent any act of terrorism”. And Senegal, which the French security service says is vulnerable to an attack, is pondering a ban, too. Only one west African country seems to be moving in the other direction. The Gambia’s eccentric dictator, Yahya Jammeh, who recently declared his nation to be Islamic, told all female government workers to cover their hair.

If the Conservative Party decide to expel Boris Johnson, the party will implode. If they decide to punish in any other way, they risk hemorrhaging their party, possibly quite severely.

21st century votes have wised up considerably and will no longer be taken for granted.

We are living in very dangerous times.

We are also living in extremely troubled times

What twitter is doing borders on criminality. They are stifling debate by Republicans, in the US, prior to their mid-term elections, but allow the Democrats free reign to not only debate their policies but to attack the Republican’s with impunity.

Then they have collectively banned Infowars, a large thorn in the side of the Democrats, from publishing their stories on four major outlets, including Google, Apple and Facebook.

Twitter are shadow-banning thousands of people who are on the right, but allow the left to rave and insult with impunity. A black girl, going into politics for Republicans was recently banned for a day for simply changing an insulting tweet against whites by repeating the tweet changing whites to blacks. She was banned but the other black woman was allowed to insult freely.

Twitter is also attacking right wing thinkers in the UK.

Many of us have additional accounts with Gab.ai, and Minds which allow more free reign. Neither is quite as good as Twitter but I have high hopes for Minds as it is opensource and is owned by its users.

There is a concerted attack by the establishment against normal free-thinking Anglo-Saxons. They are terrified of us. They’ve seen what we can do from the past (remember when three-quarters of the world was coloured red on a map? Red for England). This is one reason why I wanted the Scots to have their independence, with the hope that Wales and Northern Ireland would follow.

England would always be on the right, we are more independent than most races, free thinkers and like to do our own thing.
English MPs:

Conservative:         296 – 55.534%
Labour                   228
Liberal Democrats     8
Greens                       1
We are living in troubled times. Families such as JP Morgan, Rothchilds and the Rockefellers, George Soros and many other billionnaires are fighting for a world government so that they can control the entire planet, making sure there is nowhere to hide. One of their weapons where they try to attract others to their way of thinking is through the Bilderberg Group which is used to discuss future plans for achieving their purpose.

The EU is part of their plans. A stage after the EU has consolidated with all of Europe in their clutches, they have plans for the USA and the EU to join forces. Britain is essential for them as they will be able to exert pressure on the Commonwealth. This paragraph has been put together simply because a journalist after one Bilderberg meeting found a scribbled note with the map of the USA with the stars changed to the EU circle. So it is tenuous and I will understand if you would rather disregard it.

The time is rapidly approaching where we may have to make a stand. If we do nothing but write comments on Facebook or Twitter, then we will lose. We need to take action.

I am not a lover of the Far Right. However, I am a firm believer that Tommy Robinson has realised his mistake of aligning himself with, and leading, the EDL He has become more central right. Not a lot but enough for me to feel a little more at ease following him
Positions are lost by the timid who do nothing.
Positions are lost by those that follow the crowd.
Positions are lost by those ignoring politics.
And positions are also lost by voting for a party because your parents voted for them, and their parents before them. The time has come to start thinking for yourselves. Or taking anything a politician tells you at face value. Check everything they tell you.

Eddie Rickenbacker; an incredible American hero of his time.

This is an interesting true story.

Every Friday evening, almost without fail, when the sun resembled a giant orange and was starting to dip into the blue ocean.

Old Ed came strolling along the beach to his favorite pier.

Clutched in his bony hand was a bucket of shrimps. Ed walks out to the end of the pier, where it seems he almost has the world to himself. The glow of the sun is a golden bronze now.

Everybody's gone, except for a few joggers on the beach. Standing out on the end of the pier, Ed is alone with his thoughts... and his bucket of shrimps.

Before long, however, he is no longer alone. Up in the sky a thousand white dots come screeching and squawking, winging their way toward that lanky frame standing there on the end of the pier.

Before long, dozens of seagulls have enveloped him, their wings fluttering and flapping wildly. Ed stands there tossing shrimp to the hungry birds. As he does, if you listen closely, you can hear him say with a , 'Thank you. Thank you.'

In a few short minutes the bucket is empty. But Ed doesn't leave. He stands there lost in thought, as though transported to another time and place .

When he finally turns around and begins to walk back toward the beach, a few of the birds hop along the pier with him until he gets to the stairs, and then they, too, fly away. And old Ed quietly makes his way down to the end of the beach and on home.

If you were sitting there on the pier with your fishing line in the water, Ed might seem like 'a funny old duck,' as my dad used to say. Or, to onlookers, he's just another old codger, lost in his own weird world, feeding the seagulls with a bucket full of shrimps.

To the onlooker, rituals can look either very strange or very empty. They can seem altogether unimportant.. .maybe even a lot of nonsense.

Old folks often do strange things, at least in the eyes of Boomers and Busters.

Most of them would probably write Old Ed off, down there in Florida... That's too bad. They'd do well to know him better.

His full name: Eddie Rickenbacker. He was a famous hero in World War I, and then he served in WWII. On one of his flying missions across the Pacific, he and his seven-member crew went down.

Miraculously, all of the men survived, crawled out of their plane, and climbed into a life raft.

Captain Rickenbacker and his crew floated for days on the rough waters of the Pacific. They fought the sun. They fought sharks. Most of all, they fought hunger and thirst. By the eighth day their rations ran out. No food. No water. They were hundreds of miles from land and no one knew where they were or even if they were alive.

Every day across America millions wondered and prayed that Eddie Rickenbacker might somehow be found alive.

The men adrift needed a miracle. That afternoon they had a simple devotional service and prayed for a miracle.

They tried to nap. Eddie leaned back and pulled his military cap over his nose. Time dragged on. All he could hear was the slap of the waves against the raft...suddenly Eddie felt something land on the top of his cap. It was a seagull!

Old Ed would later describe how he sat perfectly still, planning his next move. With a flash of his hand and a squawk from the gull, he managed to grab it and wring its neck. He tore the feathers off, and he and his starving crew made a meal of it - a very slight meal for eight men. Then they used the intestines for bait. With it, they caught fish, which gave them food and more bait....and the cycle continued. With that simple survival technique, they were able to endure the rigors of the sea until they were found and rescued after 24 days at sea.

Eddie Rickenbacker lived many years beyond that ordeal, but he never forgot the sacrifice of that first life-saving seagull... And he never stopped saying, 'Thank you.' That's why almost every Friday night he would walk to the end of the pier with a bucket full of shrimps and a heart full of gratitude.

PS: Eddie Rickenbacker was the founder of Eastern Airlines. Before WWI he was race car driver. In WWI he was a pilot and became America's first ace. In WWII he was an instructor and military adviser, and he flew missions with the combat pilots. Eddie Rickenbacker is a true American hero. And now you know another story about the trials and sacrifices that brave men have endured for your freedom.
