Report: UK Raising Money To Increase Police Budget

In a bit of Downing Street is trying to find money to increase police budgets in the UK.

Unfortunately, some of the money for more police will come from the sorely pressed Justice ministry. Briefly quoting the Daily Mail report linked above:

Boosted by better than expected growth forecasts and higher tax receipts, he also abandoned plans to cut police budgets in the wake of the Paris terror attacks.

But he will still implement £18billion of spending cuts to Whitehall departments with transport, business and justice suffering some of the heaviest losses.

So Peter is to be robbed to pay Paul; and the net result is likely to be yet further increases in the sky high U.K. violent crime rates*:


…Which are sky high and rising after the post-Dunblane massacre gun ban.


* Blue columns are taken from the British Crime Survey, red bars are from the Office of National Statistics (ONS).

“Number Of Shootings With Legal Guns?”

Someone was sent by who was searching for “gun shootings with legal vs unlegal.”

That is a good question, but since many reports of “shots fired” lead nowhere, shootings that resulted in no personal injury are often unreported, and single shootings often result in neither a police report or a trip to the ER, the situation is about as clear as a bucket of Mississippi River water.

Gun control propagandists have floated numbers as high as 337,000 shooting incidents with 45,000 “murders.” numbers that were, even at that time, absurd.

Those who count police reports will tell you, depending on how up to date they are, there were 45,000 shootings with 111,000 fatalities. Which is more in line with the facts.

From the FBI, we see that 69.8 percent of 14,249 homicides or 9,946 individuals were killed in various sorts of shootings, including justifiable shootings.

Estimates derived from ER admissions suggest there were a total of approximately 36,000 shooting cases seen in ER’s.

Since virtually every shooting victim passes through an ER, it appears there were, conservatively 40,000 “shootings” with 10,000 fatalities in the United States during 2014.

From the 94 to 6 ratio between crimes committed by those who cannot lawfully look at a gun to those who can lawfully possess a gun, it appears probably there were 37,500 or so shootings by persons barred from gun possession, and 2,500 shootings by persons who can lawfully possess a gun.

Obama Promulgating Fiats, Thee A Gun Ban Somewhere

The Daily Signal reports the regime is preparing to release a fresh crops of HRH Obama’s fiats.

You can pretty much bet there is at least one gun ban fiat in the crop. Even if Obama were not already so inclined, Bloomberg is lobbying for them – no doubt with an open checkbook.

Anti-Gun Activist Holds Dog and Pony Show In Colorado

CBS News, one of the most complicit of the complicit media, reports anti-gun activist and presidential candidate HRod Clinton met with “victims and survivors of gun violence.”

No word about how our a competent mental health system would have prevented the Columbine and Aurora tragedies; or on how increased gun ownership and relaxed gun laws have cut Colorado’s homicide rate from 1993’s 6.8 per 100,000 to 2014’s 2.8 per 100,000 population; a 59% reduction.

Nor not the slightest hint that that reduction was achieved over the shrill and violent objections of HRod Clinton and her toadies in the media. A media that is complicit in virtually every evil that has befallen America in the last sixty year, including more than 800,000 excess deaths resulting from gun control.

Remember, the Democrats are the party of violence, and the media is their accomplice.

That Should Be No Surprise – The D’s Want The Felon Vote

The Lexington Herald Leader reports defeated Democratic governor Steve Bashear has restored voting rights to thousands of convicted felons.

As Tammany Hall’s “Boss” Tweed is said to have explained, “There’s no more reliable vote than that of a grateful man.”

Noted: NASA Has “Fiddled” Climate Data On A Massive Scale+

Writing at Breitbart, the invaluable James Delingpole confirms what close observers of the Earth’s climate already new. The National Aeronautical and Space Administration has massively altered historical climate records.

Briefly quoting Mr. Delingpole’s Breitbart report, linked above:

Professor Dr. Friedrich Karl Ewert is a retired geologist and data computation expert. He has painstakingly examined and tabulated all NASA GISS’s temperature data series, taken from 1153 stations and going back to 1881. His conclusion: that if you look at the raw data, as opposed to NASA’s revisions, you’ll find that since 1940 the planet has been cooling, not warming.

There is a great deal more at the link. Click on over, the Alley will be here when you click back.

For my part, and from memory, I would be more inclined to peg the beginning of the decline at 1945, near the peak of Solar Cycle 18, than 1940 and the minimum between SC’s 17 and 18; but that is a quibble, not an objection. Memory is subjective, raw, unmanipulated, data is objective.

Of course, Dr. Ewart’s findings confirm something that has been common knowledge since at least 1992, and was doubly confirmed by the release of the Climategte 1 and Climategate II email trove.

So the bottom line is clear enough. The polar bears face neither extinction nor starvation. Temperate zone children will not have to have snow explained to them. Greenland and Antarctica will not melt away to an ice cube. Iceland will not become a tropical vacation spot any time soon.

And, if we do our part, the politicians who trade laws that make climate scammers billionaires in return for “campaign contributions” will find themselves unemployed.

Noted: Leftist Calls WaPo “Bright Light Of Journalism”

MewsMax reports Amazon magnate Jeff Bezons, who, if he is not an oligarch is at least a magnate considers his Washington Post a “bright light of journalism.”

Perhaps the Washington Post could have been described as a “bright light of journalism” at one time. Unfortunately, the 138 year old periodical has, like many in senescence, lost it’s memory.

With younger, modern, and far more aware of events competitors the District’s readers should let the old dog snooze away her dotage.
