Field is normally yellow, after the Burke clan. White background (original Stormont flag) is controversial since it looks like St. George’s Cross (England).

Damn, I get to open another bottle of vintage wine received for this precise occasion.

I’ll put the empty bottle on the shelf next to the ones marked Bin Laden, Pot, Jung-ill, Arafat, Gaddafi, Moresi, Chavez ....ect.

The cellar is getting empty, but perhaps I’ll take the time to dust off the bottles labeled Castro and Mugabe. They have been sitting there far, far too long.

Excellent. He should have been publicly snuffed decades ago, but this arrest will do. Should shine some light on what is, at its heart, a murderous gang of thugs, no less so than the most vicious jihadists. Thanks Berlin_Freeper.

Yes. If he is guilty of this terrible crime then he deserves to die in prison, and be condemned to hell.

Gerry has always proudly called himself a “progressive”.....
He’s a thorough Marxist-Leninist which would certainly allow him to justify or participate in murder.

I don’t believe in the ‘peaceful wing of terrorists organizations’ and that’s what the (provisional)IRA was as witnessed by the ‘disappeared’.

“My sister lived five doors from Jean McConville in Farset Walk in the flats. Weeks before Jean was killed, a soldier was hit on the head by a brick thrown by a local lad. My sister heard him crying. She was a very soft, warm woman and she brought him into the hallway and gave him a glass of water.”

http://www.nuzhound.com/articles/breen/arts2014/apr20_Arrest_Adams_now_for_McConville_murder___SBreen_Sunday-Life.php

From the Daily Mail:

Jean McConville, who lived with her children aged from six to 16 at a council flat off the Catholic Falls Road, was abducted in 1972 when neighbours informed IRA leaders she was a British sympathiser after she was seen comforting a soldier shot and wounded outside her home.

Soon after her act of kindness to the soldier, the 37-year-old woman was beaten and found wandering the streets dazed and bleeding.

Her children - whose father had died a year earlier - helped clean up her wounds at home.

But they did not have time to heal. Less than 24 hours later, more than a dozen figures, some wearing balaclavas, arrived at the McConville family home and burst through the door demanding to see ‘mammy’.

She was dragged through the door as her children clung on to her legs and tried to fight the gunmen off. They failed.

A week later, a man who identified himself as being from the IRA called at the McConvilles’ council home.

He handed the children their mother’s purse and wedding ring, saying: ‘I was told to deliver this.’

On tape, Brendan Hughes, once a close friend of Adams and a legendary figure in the IRA’s high command, says: ‘There is only one man who gave the order for that woman to be executed. That man is head of Sinn Fein.’

.
.
.
.

So, if these accounts are true, Jerry Adams and the IRA murdered a mom of three little children because she did exactly what Christ would have done to a wounded man who was her enemy. Who kills people for following Christ’s commands? You may not always recognize him, but every so often his mask slips.

Ha, I opened a bottle of Bushmill’s (Northern) Irish Whiskey for this occasion, and tomorrow I might just get a bottle of Black Bush to continue the celebration!

Beats anything Jameson’s has to offer!

There was a book by a former IRA woman (name Mary something) about Kennedy’s role in fundraising for the IRA to buy arms for use against the British. If you google “Mary and IRA book” you might find it, from about 1974.

Given Kennedy’s uncovered ties to the Soviet communist administration (by Prof. Paul Kengor), and his lies about Vietnam during the war, I have no reason NOT to believe that he was aiding the IRA and covering up for them and their operations in the US (NORAID).

May he rot in Hell.

I’d like to dedicate a song for Gerry.

Ahem. All together now!

God save our gracious Queen,
Long live our noble Queen,
God save the Queen!
Send her victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us,
God save the Queen.

Thy choicest gifts in store
On her be pleased to pour,
Long may she reign;
May she defend our laws,
And ever give us cause
To sing with heart and voice,
God save the Queen!

God bless our native land,
May heaven’s protective hand
Still guard our shore;
May peace her power extend,
Foe be transformed to friend,
And Britain’s power depend
On war no more.

May just and righteous laws
Uphold the public cause,
And bless our isle.
Home of the brave and free,
Fair land and liberty,
We pray that still on thee
Kind heaven may smile.

And not this land alone-
But be thy mercies known
From shore to shore.
Lord, make the nations see
That men should brothers be,
And from one family
The wide world o’er.

I am partly of Irish descent

1. The IRA took funding from the KGB.
2. The IRA terrorists trained in the same camps and alongside the “Palestinian” terrorists.

Or be shot “while trying to escape”. Or die from a hunger strike they were on without being asked. But first, all of them should be kneecapped.

Cases like the killing of the lawyer Rosemary Nelson (1999) cannot be reopened, partly because of the lapse of time, but mainly because of the history of Northern Ireland. They give prizes in her name, but no one is charged over that death.

Gerry Adam’s lawyer had better keep alert, because defending such a case is risky. At the moment, Adams is being held without charges being laid.

Adams met with BJ Sinkmiester, if I remember correctly. They met like a couple of fugitives, in an obscure store front.

Yes, this is the true story of Gerry Adams and the tragic Jean McConville. She was in her bath, naked, when she was dragged out. A hag by the first name of Dolours (I forget her last name) drove the getaway car. She was interregated for hours and then murdered and dumped in a shallow grave on a beach. Adams had ordered the execution because he is a psychopathic, paranoid personality who couldn’t tolerate a Catholic woman comforting a dying British soldier. This Dolours person (now dead), confessed to the crime and implicated Adams. Dolours was a piece of work!

Adams also comes from a disgustingly dysfunctional family full of physical and sexual abuse. His brother, I believe, is now serving time for raping his daughter. What a clan!

Thanks for the additional information. My grandmother was a true Irish patriot; I used to think of her as Cathleen ni Houlihan. And yet from the time I was a young child I had a visceral hatred of Gerry Adams and I didn’t even know why. Now I know.

I think you are missing the whole point of this post and this horrible story. It's not about picking sides Irish vs. British. That's just the "us vs. them" backstory to this whole tragedy. No, this story is about the Devil working through evil Marxists wearing the disguise of liberation fighters to destroy a Christian woman because she followed Christ's command to care for the sick and wounded.

I’m Catholic Irish by blood. I won’t even drink Bushmills. Gerry Adams is no different than Whitey Bulger as far as I’m concerned. Even Grandpa , a rather strong Irish nationalist couldn’t stand Adams and pIRA. This guy killed a lot of Catholics too.
