From the BBC:

Lord Ahmed of Rotherham to face trial on child sex charges
17 April 2019

Lord Ahmed of Rotherham spoke only to confirm his name, date of birth and nationally

A member of the House of Lords will go on trial in December charged with historical sexual offences against children.

Lord Ahmed of Rotherham appeared for a brief hearing before a judge at Sheffield Crown Court.

He is charged with a serious sexual assault and indecent assault against a boy under the age of 11.

The 61-year-old is also charged with two counts of attempting to rape a girl who was under the age of 16.

The charges relate to dates between 1971 and 1974.

The peer, of East Bawtry Road, Rotherham, appeared under his name Nazir Ahmed along with two of his brothers.

Lord Ahmed of Rotherham is a worthy representative of that name.

On Christmas Day 2007, he killed a guy with his Jaguar after sending text messages while driving. In 2013 he blamed a Jewish conspiracy for him having to go to jail for killing that guy with his Jaguar. Then in February of this year he got #MeTooed. And then in March he got charged with bisexually assaulting boys and girls under 13 in Rotherham while he was a teen.

  2. All the “colorfullness” of Lord Ahmed aside, just the fact that there IS a Lord Ahmed tells us that There’s No England Now.

    iSteve this is something I hope you will get involved with:

    On 3/20/19 Patick Cockburn posted a Brexit article that was so different in factual content inferences from the voluminous journalism on the subject that it seemed strangely unreal, He wrote: “How Brexit Could end 20 Years of Peace in Northern Ireland”.

    I have been following Brexit from the perspective of a student of Western Civilization. I am intrigued with forces pull it apart and counter forces resisting. In all my reading Cockburn’s article was the first I came across suggesting a return to the “Irish Wars” (if you will). My respons after reading the article was essentiallu “HUH!” But, I have developed a great deal of respect for him based on years of readinghis work on the Middle East. So I accepted that something was going on in N. Irealand visa vis Brexit about which mainstream media was not reporting.

    Today’s news demonstrates that Mr. Cockburn is as cogent an analysiss and report about British politics as he is of the Middle East.

    If Ireland remains in the EU and Britain leaves, this has implications for the Republic of Ireland/UK border; it will have to be hardened to control the flow of people somewhat more and the flow of goods much more. The line was drawn in the 1910-1925 time frame to both ensure a Protestant majority in Northern Ireland and to include as much population and territory as possible in Ulster as opposed to the semi-independent Irish Free State, which became the ambiguous "Eire" (No longer pledging allegiance to the Crown but not outright declaring independence) which in turn became the Republic (as of 1943.) It (the boundary) therefore runs through Catholic majority rural territory on both sides, a recipe for trouble if the border is hardened. Personally, I don't understand why ireland or any country would want to stay in, or join, the EU which is a monstrosity. I agree with the sentiments of the British people concerning Brexit, and abhor the attitude of the Establishment, however, some thought must be given to the UK/Republic of Ireland border question. A joint Irish/British force guarding the border is one idea which I think should be considered.

    I have never seen the exception apply if the victim is under the age of 13. Under 13 and it is usually a rape with a "child" rider that makes it worse.

    Sounds like Ahmed needs to get a personal demonstration of the ancient English practice of drawing and quartering.

  25. Dogs that don’t bark.

    Referring to the linked Wikipedia article, Nazir Ahmed first achieved prominence in 1993 (age ~36), when (after 3 years as a the first Asian Labour Party councillor in Rotherham), he became the chair of the South Yorkshire Labour Party. Tony Blair made him a peer and gave him a seat in the House of Lords in 1998 (~41 years old).

    In terms of the pre-1993 accomplishments that led to leadership within the Labour Party, Wikipedia has little to say, and the Times of London 2013 profile, less.

    In terms of notable pre-1993 activities, there is only a reference to what the BBC disclosed: last month, Lord Ahmed, along with his two brothers, was charged with sexual assault of a 10-year-old (or younger) boy and attempted rape of a 15-year-old (or younger) girl, the alleged incidents taking place between 1971 and 1974.

    Neither Wikipedia nor the BBC make reference to the ethnic identities of the children (white, Sikh, or Pakistani?), which is quite relevant in the context of the findings of the 2014 child sexual exploitation report.

    Presumably, there are other meritorious, or “meritorious” activities that spurred the South Yorkshire Labour Party to catapult Lord Ahmed to his first position of political prominence.

    It would be very interesting to know what those achievements were, again in the context of Rotherham. But I wouldn’t expect that many journalists would want to pursue that story. No telling what you’d find.

    Texas has 38 electors. Go back to the old way where each is chosen individually, as in West Virginia 100 years ago. (It led to a split slate in 1916.)

    Texans cast just under nine million votes in 2016. Trump's margin was eight hundred thousand.

    Under my arithmetic, Texans would have cast 340 million votes, and Trump's margin would have been over thirty million. Unbeatable!
    , @Lot
    Except there is nothing to enforce it.

    Say Michigan narrowly votes Trump again while he loses the popular vote.

    The actual electoral college members will still be our loyal party hacks as always, and they will be all carefully advised that the law is unenforceable and unconstitutional. So they all vote Trump.

    What worries me about MI/PA/WI isn’t crap like that, it is the big swing back to the Dems in 2018 in all three of those states. Combined with someone like Biden or Bernie who are both more appealing than Hillary, and it’s game over.

    The B’s will also probably choose someone stronger than Tim Kaine for VP, and likely from a GL state.

    Florida is worrisome too. It was one swing state the Dems didn’t gain big on in 2018, but they also ran some pretty terrible candidates.

    To win Trump needs to get moving on the border wall, interior deportations, blocking the Honduran invasion, and finally impose round 2 of China tariffs.

    Trump’s nomination of Steve Moore and Herman Cain is what I said he should do in 2017: stop appointing hard money banksters and start putting in either political loyalists or private-sector-trade-union economists.

    There is increasing evidence that Trump ordered Homeland Security to take executive action against illegal migration and they disobeyed him. So the housecleaning could be the beginning of getting that department in line. DoJ has been doing great under Jeff and and now Barr too, so this is a realistic hope.

    Sounds like a good time for everyone to exercise their right to vote to send a message to whoever passed this (state legislators?).

    The national popular vote is a scary idea. The two main practical (leaving aside the "losing your vote" aspect which is even more important) I see are:
    1. This is going to drive voter fraud in dark blue states (and cities) to new levels.
    2. How long after the election will it take to get all of the votes counted?

    It does make an interesting end run around the current system. It is amazing to see so many states eagerly signing away their individual power like this. That signifies two things to me.
    1. The truly amazing power of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
    2. The complete confidence Democrats have that they will be winning the national popular vote for the foreseeable future.

    I foresee an epic battle in store for when they start getting close to 270 and a contested state makes a serious effort to do this.
    , @Chris Mallory
    And it is entirely Constitutional.

    Article 2 Section 1 Clause 2: "Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress: but no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector."

    All authority to appoint electors rests with the state legislature. The state legislature does not even have to allow the state's citizens to vote for how those electors are selected. It was after the War of Yankee Aggression before all states allowed citizens to vote for president.
    Your state legislature probably allows you to vote. But they could pick who gets the state's votes themselves or they could allow the electors to be picked by a chicken crapping on numbered boxes.

    But they can't "hand over" their electoral votes. Those votes are cast by electors. You may choose electors on the basis of their promise to abide by the national result, but really they'll end up being party hacks like they are now.

    OK, but for Lord Ahmed, the peerage was in 1998, when he was 41. In 1993, he was an up-and-coming 36 year old whose accomplishments got him elevated to the chair of the Labour Party for South Yorkshire.

    I'm wondering what those accomplishments were, exactly, that brought him acclaim from the other Labour Party councillors of South Yorkshire. There must have been something, even if Wikipedia and the Times of London are silent on this point.

    “We wanted to assure everyone that the incident involved two people who knew each other and was not a crime targeted at the masjid [=mosque] or at Muslims.

    Say Michigan narrowly votes Trump again while he loses the popular vote.

    The actual electoral college members will still be our loyal party hacks as always, and they will be all carefully advised that the law is unenforceable and unconstitutional. So they all vote Trump.

    What worries me about MI/PA/WI isn’t crap like that, it is the big swing back to the Dems in 2018 in all three of those states. Combined with someone like Biden or Bernie who are both more appealing than Hillary, and it’s game over.

    The B’s will also probably choose someone stronger than Tim Kaine for VP, and likely from a GL state.

    Florida is worrisome too. It was one swing state the Dems didn’t gain big on in 2018, but they also ran some pretty terrible candidates.

    To win Trump needs to get moving on the border wall, interior deportations, blocking the Honduran invasion, and finally impose round 2 of China tariffs.

    Trump’s nomination of Steve Moore and Herman Cain is what I said he should do in 2017: stop appointing hard money banksters and start putting in either political loyalists or private-sector-trade-union economists.

    There is increasing evidence that Trump ordered Homeland Security to take executive action against illegal migration and they disobeyed him.

    Of course, in 1900, Irish nationalists loved the Boers in South Africa. Large numbers volunteered for the Boer Army and John MacBride (later hanged for participation in 1916 Easter Rising) commanded a Brigade and held the rank of major.

    FWIW, John’s son Sean MacBride was head of the IRA, an Irish Prime Minister, and was awarded the Nobel Peace and Lenin Prizes.

    Sounds like a good time for everyone to exercise their right to vote to send a message to whoever passed this (state legislators?).

    The national popular vote is a scary idea. The two main practical (leaving aside the “losing your vote” aspect which is even more important) I see are:
    1. This is going to drive voter fraud in dark blue states (and cities) to new levels.
    2. How long after the election will it take to get all of the votes counted?

    It does make an interesting end run around the current system. It is amazing to see so many states eagerly signing away their individual power like this. That signifies two things to me.
    1. The truly amazing power of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
    2. The complete confidence Democrats have that they will be winning the national popular vote for the foreseeable future.

    I foresee an epic battle in store for when they start getting close to 270 and a contested state makes a serious effort to do this.

    OK, but for Lord Ahmed, the peerage was in 1998, when he was 41. In 1993, he was an up-and-coming 36 year old whose accomplishments got him elevated to the chair of the Labour Party for South Yorkshire.

    I’m wondering what those accomplishments were, exactly, that brought him acclaim from the other Labour Party councillors of South Yorkshire. There must have been something, even if Wikipedia and the Times of London are silent on this point.

    Chase Bank is shutting down accounts of people and organizations with controversial political views, according to an undercover investigation by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas.

    ‌O’Keefe’s latest probe found that Chase, without explanation, abruptly closed the account of a political activist that had existed for 15 years in good standing.

    Enrique Tarrio, chairman of the Proud Boys activist group and owner of a website that sells provocative political merchandise, spoke to Chase representatives who could not explain why his business account was about to be terminated.

    Tarrio recorded the calls and provided them to Project Veritas.

    Chase banker Marcel Smith told Tarrio: “I see nothing that indicates any reason why the account should be closed. I don’t see any outstanding transactions or anything ridiculous.”

    One:

    Living in Charlotte and watching the news, I can for sure say that the black community as well as every local news outlet, believes this officer involved shooting, was not justified. I (big emphasis on “I”) believe, after watching the video, that this was 100% justified and my opinion would not differ regardless of race or creed. After the officer gave over 10 commands for the suspect to drop his weapon, he refused, thus the scenario she finds herself in. Our police chief as well as every house Democrat (more than 70% of the board and also black) are pushing for a complete makeover of the department and how they handle things. Mark my words, this happens everytime, and everytime a police officer is wounded or killed in the line of duty because of fear of prosecution, then everything will go back to how it was, rinse, repeat. It’s sad that our leaders have to cater to these people to stop the city from being destroyed from riots just like what happened after the Keith Lamont Scott shooting. Every. F[antastic]. Time. SAD!

    In this case Harvard is being sued for something that wasn't illegal and happened 100+ years ago.
    So simply because something wasn't a crime and happened before you were born doesn't mean you can't be sued over it in our woke world.

    Beautiful! Hope it leads to more lawsuits just like this against every liberal institution in the country. No one deserves it more. Maybe someone will sue NBC for Amos and Andy.

What’s unusual is you have the black police chief stating explicitly: “All (12) of the victims (women and GIRLS) were white females”. I doubt anyone but the most willfully blind or dishonest leftist would argue this man chose his victims at random.

    It leads to a question about the nature of what constitutes the “hate” in “hate crime”, a question I don’t need to explain on this blog the powers that be don’t want to have.

    OK, but for Lord Ahmed, the peerage was in 1998, when he was 41. In 1993, he was an up-and-coming 36 year old whose accomplishments got him elevated to the chair of the Labour Party for South Yorkshire.

    I'm wondering what those accomplishments were, exactly, that brought him acclaim from the other Labour Party councillors of South Yorkshire. There must have been something, even if Wikipedia and the Times of London are silent on this point. Maybe it's innocuous, like "being Asian, speaking to the camera in complete sentences, and having a pulse." Or, Rotherham being Rotherham, maybe there's more to the story.

    Not sure if this is why, but it sure is ironic in a very disgusting way: “(Ahmed) has been on the board of several organisations, including a period as president of South Yorkshire Victim Support“.

    If Ireland remains in the EU and Britain leaves, this has implications for the Republic of Ireland/UK border; it will have to be hardened to control the flow of people somewhat more and the flow of goods much more. The line was drawn in the 1910-1925 time frame to both ensure a Protestant majority in Northern Ireland and to include as much population and territory as possible in Ulster as opposed to the semi-independent Irish Free State, which became the ambiguous “Eire” (No longer pledging allegiance to the Crown but not outright declaring independence) which in turn became the Republic (as of 1943.) It (the boundary) therefore runs through Catholic majority rural territory on both sides, a recipe for trouble if the border is hardened. Personally, I don’t understand why ireland or any country would want to stay in, or join, the EU which is a monstrosity. I agree with the sentiments of the British people concerning Brexit, and abhor the attitude of the Establishment, however, some thought must be given to the UK/Republic of Ireland border question. A joint Irish/British force guarding the border is one idea which I think should be considered.

    Chase Bank is shutting down accounts of people and organizations with controversial political views, according to an undercover investigation by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas.

    ‌O’Keefe’s latest probe found that Chase, without explanation, abruptly closed the account of a political activist that had existed for 15 years in good standing.

    Enrique Tarrio, chairman of the Proud Boys activist group and owner of a website that sells provocative political merchandise, spoke to Chase representatives who could not explain why his business account was about to be terminated.

    Tarrio recorded the calls and provided them to Project Veritas.

    Chase banker Marcel Smith told Tarrio: “I see nothing that indicates any reason why the account should be closed. I don’t see any outstanding transactions or anything ridiculous.”

    I wonder if it’s legal to close a bank account for no reason? I sure couldn’t evict a tenant who ran a little organization I disapproved of out of an office he rented.

    The British hand out life peerages to minorities, but as far as I can tell from google, have given no hereditary peerages to non-whites since the days of the British Raj.

    This document has a list of minorities who were members of the British House of Lords at the time of its publication. There were about 30 in 2014.

  106. “Lord” Ahmed is one of at least three Muslims elevated by Tony Blair to the House of Lords all within the space of a month, and all in his first year as prime minister. The Labour Party of corse then threw the door wide open to massive levels of immigration unseen in over a millenium, if ever.

    From 2001 (an auspicious year that) to 2011, the number of Muslims in the UK nearly doubled to almost 3 million, and ethnic Britons became a minority in their own capital city.

    There’s a great scene in the movie “Dances With Wolves” that pretty much sums the whole situation up quite well. Kevin Costner’s character has chosen to be posted to the American frontier (i.e., Indian Country). When asked why he says ‘I’d like to see it before it disappears.’

    The character he is speaking to looks at him like he’s an idiot, but in less than 50 years the frontier would indeed be gone.

    That is exactly what is happening in England (and America and Canada and Sweden and Germany and Australia and so many other Western countries) right now. In 50 years we will, in any meaningful sense, be gone. The difference is that while Native Americans were overwhelmed through technological superiority, we have no excuse for we we are allowing it to happen to us.

    "If you haven’t seen England yet I suggest you do so. Before it’s gone."

    Hear, hear. There is still a lot of rural beauty and there are many pretty towns full of historic buildings, open country with great walking trails, unspoilt coastline, woods, forests, stately homes, river gorges, scenic railways, lakes, mountains, rolling chalk hills, trout streams, and much more. And the same applies to the other countries in the Union. Wales is a special love of mine.

    But there's great pressure on the countryside from housing development driven by population increase, which in turn comes from the immigration of hundreds of thousands of people who don't like us and have no sympathy with our culture. And perverse planning regulations encourage farmers to build vast blank-walled barns, usually in the middle of formerly unspoilt land.

    Don't panic - yet - but come soon. And by the way, although some over-excited commentators depict it as a hell-hole, London is still a good place to visit. Away from the main tourist spots there are a lot of quiet urban villages with interesting old pubs and restaurants, and open spaces with good views, like Hampstead Heath.

    I don't support it. But then I would limit all voting to men 45 years old or older who are married, have kids, own property, and had a direct male ancestor in the British colonies before 1776. No one else should be allowed to vote or hold public office.

    You sure wouldn’t want my father or one of my brothers voting or holding office Other brother is OK.

    Perhaps he was the high ranking protector of the Rotherham sex grooming gang?

    So then it was not just a matter of local police afraid of being called racist in a general way, as we were given to believe.

    Perhaps he was the high ranking protector of the Rotherham sex grooming gang?

    Excellent question.

    I am entirely in favor of paying attention to all complaints that are, so to speak, "on behalf of the Jewish people," provided we completely ignore all the confected manipulative hoaxes and media stunts.
    Background, which you already know, but this guy is claiming he didn't: some Irish, often the type you don't want to start a political discussion within a dark pub, view their recent history as rhyming with the Palestinian situation. Nationalist murals have placed Irish and Sinn Fein colors next to Palestinian and PFLP flags. This is a long-established thing that goes out to actual organizational cooperation in the field and joint training exercises. It's not a colored wristband. It's not really something I would ask about in a pub I'd never before patronized.

    What a disgusting specimen Tuvia Tenebom is.

    And it is entirely Constitutional.

    Article 2 Section 1 Clause 2: "Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress: but no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector."

    All authority to appoint electors rests with the state legislature. The state legislature does not even have to allow the state's citizens to vote for how those electors are selected. It was after the War of Yankee Aggression before all states allowed citizens to vote for president.
    Your state legislature probably allows you to vote. But they could pick who gets the state's votes themselves or they could allow the electors to be picked by a chicken crapping on numbered boxes.

    So it’s Contitutional to confect a law that takes all the force out of Constitutional provisions and federal law. Sure it is. The Supremes don’t just go by quoting the Constitution, they work out in their minds how things would work. If this is allowed then you can defang US code cover to cover, you can gut the IRS. This would not survive a challenge.

    I know Lord Ahmed, a wonderful brave man. He visited me in Palestine, he invited me to speak in the Parliament.

    I am positive he had been framed by these "victims" who remember what happened to them 40 years ago.
    I would like if readers of Steve and Steve would show a bit less prejudice and a bit more of discernment. A man who risked all to defend Palestine deserves to be defended.

    Of all the words of tongue or pen, the saddest are, “/pol/ was right again.”
    The British legal establishmemt will do nothing to stop rape happening now and will actually attack the victims, but it’s all action for a case from forty years ago which must have no evidence or witnesses. What’s even sadder is in the US it would never get this far (Omar is a freak occurance in our lower House). A Senator would never be a Palestine advocate.

    He's a Lord(very English), a Baron(very English), killed a guy with his Jag(very English car). Diddling boys and blaming jews cuts across English and Pakistani cultures but certainly more prevalent among the Pakistani so he doesn't get any assimilation points for either. Accordingly he's officially 3/5 assimilated into his host culture.

    So, like…a kind of…”Three-Fifths Compromise?” Hmm, that sounds familiar. I cannot put my finger on it, but I’ve a vague recollection the term suggests something that doesn’t work out well in the end….

    "Lord" Ahmed is one of at least three Muslims elevated by Tony Blair to the House of Lords all within the space of a month, and all in his first year as prime minister. The Labour Party of corse then threw the door wide open to massive levels of immigration unseen in over a millenium, if ever.

    From 2001 (an auspicious year that) to 2011, the number of Muslims in the UK nearly doubled to almost 3 million, and ethnic Britons became a minority in their own capital city.

    There's a great scene in the movie "Dances With Wolves" that pretty much sums the whole situation up quite well. Kevin Costner's character has chosen to be posted to the American frontier (i.e., Indian Country). When asked why he says 'I'd like to see it before it disappears.'

    The character he is speaking to looks at him like he's an idiot, but in less than 50 years the frontier would indeed be gone.

    That is exactly what is happening in England (and America and Canada and Sweden and Germany and Australia and so many other Western countries) right now. In 50 years we will, in any meaningful sense, be gone. The difference is that while Native Americans were overwhelmed through technological superiority, we have no excuse for we we are allowing it to happen to us.

    If you haven't seen England yet I suggest you do so. Before it's gone.

    “If you haven’t seen England yet I suggest you do so. Before it’s gone.”

    Hear, hear. There is still a lot of rural beauty and there are many pretty towns full of historic buildings, open country with great walking trails, unspoilt coastline, woods, forests, stately homes, river gorges, scenic railways, lakes, mountains, rolling chalk hills, trout streams, and much more. And the same applies to the other countries in the Union. Wales is a special love of mine.

    But there’s great pressure on the countryside from housing development driven by population increase, which in turn comes from the immigration of hundreds of thousands of people who don’t like us and have no sympathy with our culture. And perverse planning regulations encourage farmers to build vast blank-walled barns, usually in the middle of formerly unspoilt land.

    Don’t panic – yet – but come soon. And by the way, although some over-excited commentators depict it as a hell-hole, London is still a good place to visit. Away from the main tourist spots there are a lot of quiet urban villages with interesting old pubs and restaurants, and open spaces with good views, like Hampstead Heath.
