No Minister

During WW2 air operations and to a lesser degree surface shipping was developing and coming to terms with counter measures in dealing with a new technology called radar.

Some claim the failure of the Luftwaffe to demolish all the installations that gave considerable early warning of Bombing raids incoming from occupied France, was a very pertinent factor in the Battle of Britain thwarting a planned invasion of Britain by the Wehrmacht.

Later in the war when allied planes took the airwar to Germany radar was by then very useful in the defence of the German homeland.
In an effective counter the allies developed “Window” where foil strips of a length to maximise the effect were scattered in the air to “Jam” the enemy eyes via Radar.
Of course once visual contact was achieved it made no difference and airwar resumed.

Now being a conspiracy theorist from long past I am wondering if the very convenient Mt Albert Park (mainly peaceful) Riot left to fester and erupt in the mystifying absence of an Police reaction until a final intervention to escort Ms Parker, aka Kellie-Jay Keen-Minshull, safely to the airport and away from NZ , was not a welcome diversion from all the other shite enveloping the Mad Magazine cover boy, Chipkins?

“Window” had a degree of success but not total in all circumstances, so when the dust begins to settle will the marama mysteries return to any degree of prominence,
Her Outburst at Mt Albert Park in reference to male born whites being responsible for all sexual violence, Minister outside Cabinet for the Prevention of Family and Sexual Violence, as well as holding the Associate Housing portfolio stated “I am a prevention violence minister [sic]. I know who causes violence in the world, it is white cis men. That is white cis men who cause violence in the world.
Is that acceptable for a Minister outside Cabinet, you Yell at us, IMHO it was just one of many contributing factor in the eruption of serious violence where women some older ones who were assaulted as The Kellie-Jay Keen Minshull speaking tour was shut down in a violent counter riot.

Now who can in all sincerity accept that apparent blatant conflict of interest, it seems Mad Magazine c2023 frontispiece can?
Ahoy Chippy you might be able to magic up a bunch of thugs to silence a public display to protect women, it was also a bit strange that the Police seemed to be far too busy to prepare to deal with a mainly peaceful counter demonstration and the total abdication of any support of “Free Speech” as a basic human right, However old Chap the publicity being generated across the worlds media might just be running into serious status for The Country that has endowed you with a very rare opportunity to find a place in History, how sad indeed should you end up alongside your immediate predecessor in history, who incidentally seems to have disappeared behind a dump of Window.

Anything that is grievance-based leads to violence and death.

with one comment

A transgender shooter killing Christians shows us: “The potential for aggression and even violence in victimhood movements is much larger than in the general public.” “Anything that is grievance-based leads to violence and death.”

– Psychology Professor Sam Vaknin

Watch the short video. The nazis were a victimhood cult based on Versailles and the communists made the proletariat victims. The TRA misogynists are a victimhood cult. Men thinking they can be better women than women themselves. Deeply evil.

NZ now looks to join AUKUS!

with 7 comments

Andrew Little says that New Zealand may look to join AUKUS – albeit in a non-nuclear capacity:

“We have been offered the opportunity to talk about whether we could or wish to participate in that pillar two [non-nuclear] aspect of it,” said Andrew Little, the New Zealand defence minister. “I’ve indicated we will be willing to explore it.”

In a welcome move, Gerry Brownlee has also walked back his idiotic comments on Australia joining AUKUS:

Last week, the New Zealand opposition foreign affairs spokesperson, Gerry Brownlee, raised his own concerns about whether Aukus might make it harder for Anzac forces to operate together. On Tuesday, he walked back his comments, saying he was “certainly not” trying to criticise the deal. “Australia will make decisions for Australia,” Brownlee said.

It’s good to see some sense being brought to the table in NZ. Our defence force is already woefully behind our allies in terms of equipment, capability and technology.

Helen Clark is maintaining her out of date criticism of all things military. Good thing she got the boot in 2008 – she has been irrelevant every since.

I’ve been a bit preoccupied with some other matters lately, so I haven’t posted as much as I would like. But I have to give credit where it is due – Air Marshal Short announced last week retention bonuses for all NZDF staff (who are staying in) as a partial rectification of pay and conditions falling so far behind. Army has managed to get some additional targeted payments as well to particular trades, ranks and location. Whilst it is simply reallocating the under-spend of the personnel budget (thanks to record-breaking attrition of over 17%), it is welcome.

The timing of the announcement just so happened to coincide with the new minister touring the camps and bases:

Nashy has done it again so we can expect another final final final final warning.

If there was a shred of credibility in the Main Stream Media, surely there must be one call for an under fire Prime minister to actually attempt to be the Nation’s elected leader?
Don’t hold your breath even though tuesday the 28th of March 2023 has to be a candidate for a worst day ever?

Thee only possible smidgen of opportunity remaining for Chippy from Mad Magazines Front Page is right there?

One question remaining will Nashy accept his fate, somehow I have doubts?

Now I am not certain of the timeline but if Davidson was involved with the Handlebar before her outrageous original statement re white cis males being the perpetrators of all violence towards women there might be a slim chance she was in a degree of shock, however the later reiteration as she gaily waltzed along a street repeating her racist tirade then it becomes rather weaker as an explanation.

Then when we switch to Chipkins disastrous word salad attempts to rationalise why he had no involvement in disciplining her appalling racist outburst the whole charade becomes a calamity for the New Zealand brand that for years has underpinned much of the tourism bonanza that all but evaporated with the Rona conniptions, some are claiming a recovery up to around 50% numbers pre the mismanaged response. That will not even pay the fricken rent.

Davidson is just another part maori who is in the clique trying to monetise racial advantage, not for anyone who might have a bit on the side genetics, mainly only the elites who head straight to the Bmw dealer with their newly acquired riches.

Posey Parker had every lawful and human right to make her voice heard at Albert Park last Saturday, the rabble who sought to deny her that right along with the rights of everyone who wished to hear her had nothing approaching any such right to violently shut her down.
Minister (Outside the executive) Davidson should at the very minimum be stood down while a fuller investigation into her attitudes and statements, along with Minister of Immigration Wood’s inflammatory response to those who would cancel her out of hand. followed by a complete admission by Commissioner Coster, his Auckland area Commander and any contact between Ginny Anderson and any of the police HQ hierarchy that is relevant.

I am a white male who has always been decidedly male, the unfolding events last Saturday were a total embarrassment to me, Posey Parker had every right as a fellow human being to call for an automatic safe zone for females in all situations where they might feel intimidated by males whatever their body might display. She also had an inalienable right to canvas for children to be protected from any and all attempts by adults to fulfil personal beliefs around sexual development as their bodies mature from infancy to post puberty adulthood, and the third plank that I understand to have been the focus of her intended speech was given a welcome and long overdue rationalisation by Lord Sebastian Coe with the latest declarations around Trans Males desiring to become world ranked in women’s competitive sports by recognising the well documented advantages of a Male body over a woman’s body where strength, stamina, lung capacity, musculature, all have a measurable advantage.

The mysterious Police response that needs an immediate and total explanation should be the focus of elected officials across the country.

So many questions that will never even be addressed let alone answered.

Being Clipped by a Motorbike Causes Temporary Insanity and we Must all Forgive Hon. Marama Davidson

with 9 comments

I thought the injuries from being clipped by a slow-moving motorbike would be something along the lines of sore ribs and a bit of a bruised ego. Boy was I wrong! They also cause the Minister for the Prevention of Family Violence to turn completely insane:

She didn’t look terribly shaken up in the video. She had the time to reflect that as the “prevention [of] violence minister, I know who causes violence in the world, and that is cis, white men”.

Some people are posting that the video was taken before she was accidentally knocked by the motorcyclist – if that is true (and that is a big if), surely that will be a sackable offence?

Because apparently it is not a sackable offence to ascribe all violence in the world to white blokes like me. Even white blokes like me who was beaten, strangled and punched for years by my crazy ex-wife.

The minister for the prevention of family violence is a nasty, deluded moron. She is not fit to be a minister. Getting knocked in the ribs does not cause mind-bending stupidity. I think she might have just been this crazy from the start.

An apparent consensus is claiming rising human driven emissions caused the disastrous flooding from Tropical Cyclone Gabriel to much of the North Island but in particular Gisborne, East Coast and Hawkes Bay with anecdotal claims of rainfall totals around 700/800 mm.

Eighty five years ago a similar rain event caused similar chaos with, again, anecdotal claims of totals up to 1000mm.

Now when will someone have the probity and necessary cojones to perhaps answer Maureen Pugh’s question relating to rising CO2 levels being the cause of the 2023 rain event. It won’t happen because there is no such causation, merely saying otherwise is no explanation

I have absolutely no idea what CO2 levels were back in 1938 but then I do not care what they are today as until some scientist with the credibility and the research background around such matters explains in plain language what the actual relationship involved is between rainfall and CO2 I will remain in my chosen state of oblivion.

I am yet to be led to disbelieve my understanding there is highly likely a direct connection between the massive undersea seismic event near Tonga late 2022 and early 2023 ejecting much additional sea water high into the atmosphere and likely the stratosphere of earth that gravity and weather will return to land and sea, some of which was involved in Cyclone Gabriel and also the excessive rainfalls along the Australian East coast

So a larger equally destructive rain event some eighty five years ago likely had more rainfall associated but although some “slash” not the exponential quantity of debris that the idiotic ban on burning leftover forestry remnant has delivered c2023.

Maybe Mr Luxon can direct me to that reading list, however I will resist holding my breath.

One is standing at a pedestrian crossing, a truck and trailer is beginning to cross the Zebra Lines, who would be so stupid to expect the Trailer to stop and let the waiting Pedestrian cross.

A bunch of cyclists are on a crossing who would expect the latter riders to give way, they are in a fricken “race” you daft prick.

Apparently on Saturday in a classic “Don’t you know who I am” moment a plastic Maori who happens to be a Minister outside Cabinet, a melon to boot, steps out onto a crossing being traversed by Motor Cyclists, makes contact with a Bike handlebars and does a soccer player falling clutching her midriff.

I am not for one second suggesting contact with a handlebar would not hurt, even at walking pace it would, I guess my question is when does a “paleton”, convoy, Funeral procession perhaps, lose right of way as a legitimate grouping?

Some truck and trailers do have a long hitch, in particular some logging trailers, but only a vegetable would attempt a right of way manoeuvre and attempt to cross between a Truck and a Trailer
One last question is a Watermelon a fruit(loop), or a vegetable, perhaps as with a Tomato either? depending on context.

You Say Tomato (I Say Tōmato)

Unfortunately we can’t just call the whole thing off.

The “thing” being the war waged on speech that allows some people to get away with saying stuff that others get punished for. It’s part of the free speech fight but given that one side doesn’t give a damn about that anymore – “Free speech has consequences” (said in the best Mafia boss tone) – it’s pointless to continue to appeal to their better angels.

No, they’re going to have to be subjected to the same punishments that they mete out to others. It’s rather like when a system of law, order and justice just breaks down completely because people lose faith in it. At that point a war happens and if one is lucky the result of the war is a chance to re-build those systems now that exhausted, damaged people can once again see the benefits of not handing out “consequences” themselves and having standards that everybody agrees need to apply to everybody.

In case you’re not familiar with the events behind that cartoon, here’s the background:

Adams, who said he’s a Democrat who’s “left of Bernie,” used his whiteboard later in the episode to sketch out how he thinks the cancel cycle worked in his case.”

Last Wednesday on his YouTube livestream, he riffed off the results of a Rasmussen Reports poll that asked whether people agreed with the statement “It’s OK to be white.” Among Black respondents, 26% disagreed with the statement and 21% said they were not sure — a total of 47% who didn’t think it was OK to be white.”

The seemingly innocuous phrase “It’s OK to be white” was co-opted in 2017 for an online trolling campaign that originated on discussion board 4chan and was aimed at baiting liberals and the media, the Anti-Defamation League said in a statement at the time. The phrase also has a history of use among white supremacists.”

“If nearly half of all Blacks are not OK with white people … that’s a hate group. And I don’t want anything to do with them,” Adams said Wednesday. “And based on how things are going, the best advice I could give to white people is to get the hell away from Black people. Just get the fuck away. Wherever you have to go, just get away. ’Cause there’s no fixing this. This can’t be fixed.”

A press release from Speak Up For Women

with 7 comments

I saw this on Karl du Fresne’s blog and since the MSM have shown their colours on this issue – where their pro-Trans bias and whipping up of the mob was so bad it even penetrated into my non-MSM world – I figure it’s up to Social Media like us to push the counter-message, the pro-Free Speech message – as far and as wide as we can.

Especially given the events yesterday in Auckland.

There’s a lot of good stuff on Karl’s blog related to this event and pre-dating it. Even over on The Standard (Letting women speak in Aotearoa New Zealand) there’s some pretty tough comments being made against the Trans-protestors and about the role in all this played by Labour and the Greens by Left-wing women (and a handful of Left-Wing men). I suggest you hit that link and read them. Sadly there’s also a complete failure to read the room by one of their authors, “Micky Savage” with his Debating with Nazis post, which I refuse to link.

If you’re a Right-winger I wouldn’t get too excited though, given the pitifully weak comments of the National Party leader, Luxon, in the lead up to the protest, where he appeared to be playing the usual “National doesn’t do culture wars” bit. ACT’s Seymour strongly condemned the protestors actions, but after his handling of the vaccine mandate issue I’m suspicious of him too.

Still, it’s good to see that support for Kellie-Jay Keen-Minshull’s right to speak is crossing ideological and partisan lines.

Today in Albert Park as women were punched, kicked, spat at, trampled, and overrun by a violent mob, New Zealanders have seen the true colours of some of those who, ordinarily, cloak themselves in claims of diversity, tolerance, and inclusion.

In the same week that World Athletics has stated what all reasonable New Zealanders know to be true – that fairness, safety and opportunities for women in sport require the exclusion of males, no matter how they choose to identify – New Zealand activists have shown that they believe women should not be able to have anything for themselves. Not even a small band rotunda in an Auckland park.

So let us clearly say the things that Kellie-Jay Keen-Minshull was not able to say today. Lesbians cannot have penises. Men have no place in women’s single sex facilities, services, or sports, regardless of what they proclaim their inner gender identity to be. Puberty blockers, created to castrate male sex offenders and treat prostate cancer, are experimental and harm vulnerable children. And people cannot change biological sex no matter how much they may want to or how many documents they may possess saying otherwise.

Saying that does not deny the existence of people who identify as gender diverse, or instigate harm or violence against them, or make them unsafe, it simply states the truth. Biological sex is real and it matters.

Storming barricades and assaulting women is not “free speech”. It is violent sexism and misogyny. Drowning out the speech of people you don’t like is the cowardly approach of people unwilling to debate contesting views. A 5’1” woman needing four security guards to form a human shield around her to protect her from a screaming, spitting mob is not a New Zealand we know. But it is a true representation of a movement that has become increasingly determined to shut down and destroy anyone with views about sex and gender that they don’t like.

We see those of you in the media who are already trying to downplay the results of the frenzy you were busy whipping up all week. There was not a “scuffle” between supporters and Mrs Keen-Minshull did not leave because she got some paint thrown at her. A small group of courageous women were stampeded by an activist mob and a number were assaulted and physically harmed. Fortunately, in the age of technology New Zealanders can see for themselves what happened.

In the country that was the first in the world to give women the vote, tomorrow’s Let Women Speak gathering in Wellington has been cancelled. Mrs Keen-Minshull’s security team have advised her that they cannot keep her safe from mob violence and the police have declined to do so.

Activists spent the week being courted by a complicit media platforming their claims of being scared, fearing for their safety, deliberately lying to propagate their claims of New Zealand being full of “queer hatred”, and claiming that words they don’t like are harmful and make them feel unsafe. In reality it is clear who really was unsafe today. It is clear who was actually harmed. And it was not the activists taking gloating selfies from a band rotunda.

Speak Up for Women thanks Mrs Keen-Minshull for having the courage to come to New Zealand and showing up in Albert Park today, despite receiving multiple death threats and threats of violence in the last week.

In the coming weeks Speak Up for Women will be gathering witness statements and laying a formal complaint with the Independent Police Conduct Authority about the lack of police action to prevent violence in what was clearly an increasingly volatile situation.We call on all political leaders to roundly condemn the violence that transgender activists perpetuated this morning.

We speak directly to the Greens, who actively courted and promoted the violence that occurred today, including just this morning posting on social media that they were ready to “fight the Nazis”. And by Nazis they meant the 70 year-old woman who was punched in the head by the mob they instigated. The Green Party was founded by people who fought for free speech, including speech they found abhorrent, you should be ashamed of what you have turned the party into.

I have to admit that I’m experiencing a certain amount of schadenfreude with this because the fact is that it’s feminist theory that gave birth to the Trans monster now eating feminists alive, via gender theory:

Just consider, for instance, how there was also a pseudo-scientific element factoring in here. For decades the dominant, feminism-prescribed theory (mis)shaping thinking on the sexes was known as “gender neutrality.” It held that the sexes were the same except for the superficial physical differences, and, therefore, raising boys and girls identically would result in their being identical in personality, inclination and abilities.

The social pressure enforcing this dogma was intense, too. Left-wing writer Camille Paglia, for instance, told a story about how feminists would corner her on college campuses in the 1970s and insist that hormones didn’t exist and that, even if they did, they couldn’t possibly influence behavior. Again, it was convenient.

Not to mention the whole “girls can do anything” mantra pushed outside of academia:

“I’m constantly told that men and women are equal and that gender is a social construct. I’m constantly shown ‘bad-ass women’ on TV and in movies that can beat up men easily. I’m told a woman can do anything a man can do. So…why segregate sports?”

Because men have an advanta…uh…but, wait, equality! No, I mean, er…there are biologi…uh…not that I’m sexist! Talk about cognitive dissonance.
