Oh Canada – or why the global Left have wet themselves in delight

with 10 comments

A Pinochet the Left can love

You can see it in uncounted comments on things like FaceTwit. It’s not just Canadian Leftists having a huge orgasm about finally having the cops on their side, ready to go for the bash that they once decried as the horrors of State Violence.

No, the reaction is also across the US and seen even here in NZ with the angry frustrations of the likes of Chris Trotter that the Force have not piled into our local copy of the Ottawa trucker protest.

The funny side of this – if there is a funny side – is that even members of Soy Boy Trudeusescu’s party are feeling … uncomfortable at the idea of implementing what are basically War Powers in peacetime against a bunch of people who have not burned anything down, killed anybody or even beat up anybody.

Unlike the Antifa/BLM protestors, whom this cunt kneeled with in 2020. He would have only be happier if he’d had Fidel Castro to hug. The War Powers Act , renamed some years ago as the Emergencies Act, was last enacted by Pierre Trudeau, the current PM’s father, in response to actual armed, violent terrorists during the great Quebec crisis of 1970 when the Front de libération du Québec kidnapped a provincial Deputy Premier and were threatening all manner of violence.

It enables basically the ultimate in State Power, one-man rule, including tracking down and freezing the bank accounts of people who contributed a few bucks to buying food and fuel for the trucker convoy – and anybody else who has given the finger to this rich-prick child.

And so… “It’s for your safety”.

The Ottawa police actually tried to claim that a bicycle had been thrown at the horses legs. You’d think that trained police officers would have better observation skills to enable distinguishing between a bicycle and a mobility scooter. Such lies might have worked in the pre-smart phone era but not nowadays:

Then their story kept evolving from thrown bicycle to adding later that the “horse tripped.” The horses didn’t trip; they ran them right at the people. This isn’t going to look good for Justin Trudeau, when these pictures are splashed all over the front pages of media. 

Bwahahahahahahah. I checked out a couple of NZ MSM sources and saw nothing of this – of course.

Similarly You can see another protester here, apparently being beaten with a butt of a gun by the police. Keep in mind, none of these people hit back at the police; at best, they resisted being torn from the locked arm lines. Police claim they needed to do that because of protesters’ “assaultive behavior”. Another example here where there is no video to support the police claims. What is captured are police firing some sort of gassy projectiles at the crowd – who then kick them back. Authorities cannot make claims like this in the era of the smart phone. As you can see in this collection of videos or these ones there was no such behaviour. There are no videos that I have seen of any protester’s “assaultive behaviour.” That might be resisting, but that isn’t assault. The cops also beat and pepper-sprayed a reporter so there will court action on that.

But it’s actually the non-violent stuff that is the real threat to Canada’s liberties – and to other democracies, as this US law blog points out:

Fascism is an overused and elastic term that in our politics mostly is used against Republicans for anything liberals don’t like. Donald Trump calling people names on Twitter is not fascism.  Justin Trudeau commanding private businesses unilaterally and without legal consequence to freeze the assets of his political opposition and their supporters is fascism.

Trudeau is dangerous not just because he’s abusing Canadians, but because he is providing the wish list for crackdowns by Democrats in the U.S. We see it already. Big tech corporations do the Democrats’ bidding in silencing critics through deplatforming, censoring content from publication or social media sharing, deplatforming websites from hosting companies and, as in the case of Parler, from the cloud and app stores. Funding platforms like GoFundMe are pressured to suspend fundraising and deprive the beneficiary of the donations, and payment processors and banks are pressured to cut off deplorables.

However, there may be hope:

The Conservatives have gone up 10 points because people are looking at the liberals and seeing what a mess they are. In January, they were dead even with the liberals.

The 10-point jump for the Conservatives comes as Bergen advocates for protesters who’ve been encamped in Ottawa for 22 days to protest federal vaccine mandates, and as the Tories oppose the government’s use of the Emergencies Act, which was invoked to give police new powers to remove those same demonstrators.

Good, although frankly the Canadian people should never had fallen for this shallow, vacuous, doe-eyed worshipper of Cuba and China in the first place.

Your camel is ready, sir

leave a comment »

Surprisingly this is not a Babylon Bee article.

Dozens of Camels Ejected from Saudi Beauty Contest over Botox

Saudi authorities have conducted their biggest-ever crackdown on camel beauty contestants that received Botox injections and other artificial touch-ups, the state-run Saudi Press Agency reported Wednesday, with over 40 camels disqualified from the annual pageant.

Unfortunately the following is also not the Babylon Bee, but its sister publication NotTheBee, which specialises in news stories that should be satire but are real, Stores in Germany now have signs saying “Unvaccinated Not Welcome” 

It literally says, “unvaccinated undesired!” or “unvaccinated not welcome!”
The exclamation point lets you know they MEAN it.

Herewith a bit of historic signage from an earlier Germany…

After looking at these photos I have to wonder if Merkel is actually leaving office because,…. sheesh

I have to admit it’s a bit more like Emperor Palpatine in the Star Wars movies, but even so. Then there’s the troops who were on parade.

Is it any wonder that smart asses like this guy take advantage of such scenes…

In other news our societies are being ripped apart from another direction. I doubt any Western government will feel too bad about having large numbers of people who can’t do math as it makes them easier to manipulate. Even now you can terrify people with a disease that has a NZ Case Fatality Rate of 0.16% among the unvaccinated. Think what will be possible with people who can’t even divide two numbers?

At least one piece of good news is that Chris Cuomo has been fired from his CNN slot for using his position to investigate the woman who were making accusations of sexual assault against his brother Andrew Cuomo. Why CNN ever thought it was a good idea to have Andrew constantly being “interviewed” by his brother is another question. So too is how much CNN’s President, Jeff Zucker, knew about all this while doing nothing.

Psycho-pathology in politics

with 4 comments

That of course was the title of the infamous piece published by Labour MP John A Lee just two days before the sainted Mickey Savage karked it back in 1940.

Labour never forgave him of course, as is their wont: nor, to be fair, did he forgive them. But the reality is that Lee’s crack has been true of all too many political leaders in history. Not just political leaders either. Several years ago an article was published that laid out the similarities between business leaders and psychopaths:

The hallmarks of the psychopathic personality involve egocentric, grandiose behavior, completely lacking empathy and conscience. Additionally, psychopaths may be charismatic, charming, and adept at manipulating one-on-one interactions. In a corporation, one’s ability to advance is determined in large measure by a person’s ability to favorably impress his or her direct manager. Unfortunately, certain of these psychopathic qualities – in particular charm, charisma, grandiosity (which can be mistaken for vision or confidence) and the ability to “perform” convincingly in one-on-one settings – are also qualities that can help one get ahead in the business world.

I’m sure the average Lefty will have no problem making that association, also with certain Right-WIng politicians. Less so with their own idols of worship, like Michael Gunner, Chief Minister of the Northern Territory in Australia:

I see he’s had heart surgery recently so one can hope.

Then there’s this asshole, shown here on the cover of his book, published at a time when the US MSM was still slobbering over him.

Cuomo eventually got his beans because he’s another prick who felt entitled enough to get grabby with attractive young woman who strayed into his orbit.

But as this NY Post article put it, however low you think this scum could be,…. “There’s always more, and it’s always worse than you thought. Much worse”:

That’s one lesson from the state Assembly report, which reveals new details of Cuomo’s venality. From sexual harassment to lies about nursing home deaths and his forbidden use of state employees to help finish his book, the governor is convincingly portrayed as a greedy, dishonest man without a shred of decency. 

All of this has actually been known for some time, but you had to be reading Right-Wing news sources like RedState and Powerline to know because the MSM did not want to know, and certainly didn’t want voters to know, until the very end when it became undeniable:

The thing that I always wanted him to be hammered for was the very thing that was ignored even at the end:

The biggest lapse is how the report fails to deal with the impact of Cuomo’s infamous March 25 order of last year that required nursing homes to admit discharged hospital patients infected with COVID-19. The order also barred the sites from even testing the patients until they were admitted. 

Exactly, and the resulting death toll was in the thousands. At best he’s getting done for sexual harassment, his shitty book deal worth millions of dollars (a form of corrupt graft in itself, since the book was never likely to be a best-seller recovering the “investment”) and for lying through his teeth about the number of people he killed in those nursing homes:

Key among those is showing how Cuomo overruled Department of Health employees and reduced the number of reported nursing home deaths by about 35 percent on the very days he was negotiating the contract for his book deal on pandemic leadership.

It’s entirely typical that psychopaths don’t get done for the worst crimes they committed. Still, like Al Capone getting jailed for tax evasion rather than murder, I suppose we should be grateful that at least this much happened to the POS.

As always, don’t forget the MSM that enabled this creature for so long, just because he was a Democrat and not Trump, and how they enable many others too with displays of sycophantic stenography.

K… K… K… Karl Marx and his never-ending story

with 4 comments

Way back on October 8 I wrote a post about Biden’s nominee for the position of Office of Comptroller of the Currency, Saule Omarova:

The OCC charters, regulates, and supervises all national banks and federal savings associations as well as federal branches and agencies of foreign banks. The OCC is an independent bureau of the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

I titled that post, Karl Marx’s Economic Analysis and the Theory of Revolution in The Capital, since that was the title of her Masters Thesis at Moscow State University in the late 1980’s. I left it at that. The comments section closes automatically after two weeks to avoid spam.

Probably a good thing, because since then the bloody post has shown up every single day in the stats. I can only assume that around the world people are tapping the title of her thesis into their search engines in the hope of finding the original document, and ending up here at No Minister.

Sorry folks. I looked for it too at the MSU archives but no luck, and Ms Omarova is keeping her copy under lock and key. I don’t know why though as it couldn’t be any more damaging than what is already known about the Commie fanatic.

Money printer go brrrrr…….

with 10 comments

News out from NZ Stats this morning:

The consumers price index rose 2.2 percent in the September 2021 quarter, the biggest quarterly movement since a 2.3 percent rise in the December 2010 quarter, Stats NZ said today.

Excluding quarters impacted by increases to GST rates, the September quarter movement was the highest since the June 1987 quarter, which saw a 3.3 percent rise.

The 2011 kick was due to the National government increasing the rate of GST from 12.5% to 15%.

This one is due to “money printer go brrrrrrr……..”

Speaking of which, let’s go back a decade to the wonderful Clarke and Dawe comedy bit on the last time we indulged in “Quantitative Easing” to compensate for something that was only slightly less insane than government locking down an economy.

Karl Marx’s Economic Analysis and the Theory of Revolution in The Capital.

with 4 comments

That’s the title of an economic thesis written decades ago at Moscow State University by an American student, attending courtesy of something called the Lenin Personal Academic Scholarship.

The person is one Saule Omarova, who is now a law professor at Cornell Law School. After graduating from Moscow in 1989 she returned to the USA where she got a PhD from the University of Wisconsin. She’s also still in love with the USSR:

“Until I came to the US, I couldn’t imagine that things like gender pay gap still existed in today’s world. Say what you will about old USSR, there was no gender pay gap there. Market doesn’t always ‘know best,’” she tweeted in 2019.

Ms. Omarova thinks asset prices, pay scales, capital and credit should be dictated by the federal government. In two papers, she has advocated expanding the Federal Reserve’s mandate to include the price levels of “systemically important financial assets” as well as worker wages. …

In a recent paper “The People’s Ledger,” she proposed that the Federal Reserve take over consumer bank deposits, “effectively ‘end banking,’ as we know it,” and become “the ultimate public platform for generating, modulating, and allocating financial resources in a modern economy.”

Perhaps she’s not aware that the USSR lost the Cold War and fell apart, revealing to the world what a complete sham its communist economy had always been.

By escaping the USSR she’s managed to live the typical wealthy lifestyle of a professor at one of America’s premier universities and is now ready to move on to other things.

Like running America’s banking regulatory system.

Joe Biden has nominated Saule Omarova to be Comptroller of the Currency. It is an important position. According to the Comptroller’s web site:

The OCC charters, regulates, and supervises all national banks and federal savings associations as well as federal branches and agencies of foreign banks. The OCC is an independent bureau of the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

Because of course this is what moderate, slighty left-of-centre Democrat Presidents do.

This is insane. Her nomination should be rejected with prejudice.

Is there anybody out there who still thinks it was a great idea to swap President Trump for Joe Biden?

Social Media Topsy Turvy

with one comment

I awoke this morning to news from Beloved Wife that she could not even access Facebook let alone get to the places she visits.

At first I thought it was just the usual FaceTwit shadow-banning or worse, but a quick check on Ye Olde Internet revealed that Facebook was actually down and out in the worst such failure they’ve had since 2008 (when they only had 80 million people in their walled garden).

My heart skipped a beat. Perhaps Putin’s outsourced cyber-crime units had finally struck a blow for freedom. As the Babylon Bee put it:

Sadly this did not turn out to be the case.

Your new Taliban 2.0

with 4 comments

Salaam Alaikum.

You’ve been that friend who rejoices with friends in their good times and sticks with them through the bad times. 

Congratulations on your purchase and installation of the new Taliban 2.0 Operating System.

We realise that twenty years is a long time to wait for an upgrade but thanks to a donation of $1 trillion from US taxpayers and a lot of blood, toil, tears and sweat (mainly blood), we’re back.

And better than ever.

The original Taliban OS was specifically designed to run on the Afghan hardware platform, and while this is still the best fit we are making great strides in enabling the OS to be rigid and powerful enough to bend any environment to its will.

The key performance OS component supporting this functionality is the Sharia Law Memory Management system, which allows you to select and wipe away any development since the 7th century. In particular the system can quickly render 57 Western genders into just two: male and breeding stock.

Backing this up is a new and more powerful Loading and Execution engine which enables thousands of non-conforming hardware units to be quickly deleted, based on your customisable preferences, thus enabling a clean reset of your hardware environment whenever desired.

The LE engine has been combined with advances in Security Management, with the new Door-To-Door biometric track and trace function, which enables surgical precision in wiping out incompatible hardware while still allowing mass deletions if so desired.

The Device Management engine has also been significantly enhanced. We know how well you’ve done with backpacks, mules, AK-74s and RPGs. But think what you’ll be able to do with BlackHawk and Mi-17 helicopters, A-29 Super Tucano attack planes, $3 million ScanEagle drones, armoured Humvees and MRAPs.

However, the advance of which we are most proud has been with the I/O Management function which enables Taliban 2.0 to know more about the outside world, specifically Americans, than they know about Taliban 2.0.

These features allow Taliban 2.0 to smoothly integrate with most Social Media apps. This integration is even superior to that of former President “Cursed Infidel Slayer” Trump, such is the degree of functional conformity between Taliban 2.0 and the likes of Twitter and Facebook.

Included at no cost in your package is a 24/7/365 public relations support centre, SIG (Submissive Infidel Dogs), which includes the Washington Post and other Bacha Bazi.

But the key advance here is the Gen 21 Trolling Shit Post feature which will enable you to mercilessly mock your loser Western enemies even as they grovel at your feet asking about the “existential crisis” they’re sure you’re suffering from in the light of total victory. Here are just two examples of this powerful feature.

In the first, the Gen 21 TSP has taken the images on the left of the ambulatory root vegetable known as “President” Biden licking ice cream while being fellated about it by the US MSM – and converted them into fun pix of yourselves with your ice creams, all while deleting the disgusting acts of fellation.

In the second example the I/O Management engine has worked with the Device Management engine to clothe Holy Warriors in US combat gear and then rendered them and our company logo from a famous historic US memory.

Your trolling mockery of the USA will never stop with Gen 21 TSP.

Finally, if you – or more likely your “friends” – happen to be in the USA on a mission and need assistance all you have to do is contact us, use our American slogan, “BennyDrama7”,** and we’ll give you all the support you need while getting out of your way as quickly as possible.

Allahu Akbar.

** CAUTION: It is essential that you not eat for 24 hours before clicking on BennyDrama7.

In the future everybody will be cancelled for 15 minutes

with 2 comments

Even scientists with a great pedigree of credentials and research papers.

Like Robert Malone.

But when he began to speak up about the potential downsides of the mRNA-“spike protein” approach to vaccines, that was not acceptable to TPTB, even though it’s his field of expertise.

First he found podcasts involving him getting pulled from YouTube, and then even the supposed business-connecting site LinkedIn took their shot:

Malone pays for the premium version of LinkedIn for the biotech and government consulting business he runs, Just the News reports. That page remains intact, but its last post is three weeks old. 

“He was given no notice, no warnings” before he was removed on Tuesday, his wife Jill said. “He has a 10-15 year old account – has never even had a warning. 6,000 followers.”

“The historic record of what I have done, stated, figured out (and when) etc. over time is a key part of establishing my credibility and track record as a professional,” Robert Malone tweeted Wednesday. “And that has been erased completely and arbitrarily without warning or explanation.” 

Well at least he can still Tweet!

===========================

There was one piece of cancellation news that was funny. There’s an outfit called Right Wing Watch, which is dedicated to posting clips of conservatives saying things in an effort to get those conservatives de-platformed. Unfortunately they were a little too good at their job of pushing YouTube on those rules:

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

My, how schadenfreudialicious that is. Something, something reaping.… something something sowing

But now that they’ve been kicked off of YouTube, they can simply go start their own multi-billion dollar video platform, right? I mean, that’s what the Left has continually told conservatives who complain about censorship online.

I think they’ll be fine. Once YouTube realises the political and ideological mistake of taking out one of their own, RWW will be allowed back.

===========================

The same might also be true for actor Tom Hanks. Early in June, Tom decided to sheer his experience and feelings about racism in American by publishing an op ed in the New York Times entitled “You Should Learn the Truth About the Tulsa Race Massacre,”, in which he confessed that he’d never heard of this during his 1950’s/60’s Whitebread schooling. Hanks has been activist (a quiet one) and a donor to many Democrat Party candidates and causes over the years.

But none of that was good enough for one Eric Deggans’, who used his platform on none other than NPR (National Public Radio, basically the equivalent of the NZR’s National Program) to unload in response, “Tom Hanks Is A Non-Racist. It’s Time For Him To Be Anti-Racist”. Because you can never be good enough, especially in the eyes of a 55 year old Black man who specialises in “issues of race and social justice”:

“The toughest thing for some white Americans … is to admit how they were personally and specifically connected to the elevation of white culture over other cultures,

His work, so often focused on the achievements of virtuous white, male Americans, may have made it tougher for tales about atrocities such as Tulsa to find space.”

The revolution, like Saturn, devours its children.

Perhaps the best response to Deggan’s bullshit is this article from Frontpage by Danusha Goska. It’s lengthy but you should read it. She makes several important points but it was this one that struck me, based on her experience teaching and living in Africa and the reality of limited good:

An insight into why villagers resisted change, including change that might save their own lives, was provided by the fate of one villager, a man I knew personally. When development workers advised the locals on how to improve their agricultural output, he carefully applied every suggestion. His farm prospered and he enjoyed a much higher yield than any of his neighbors.

His neighbors burned his farm down. That’s limited good. This man, by increasing his yield, had monopolized all the good to be had in that village, and his action would result, his neighbors believed, in their farms doing poorly.

It applied to other things in the village too, even beauty. That’s what Deggan is actually putting forward for the US and other Western societies:

Deggans is back to that limited good, zero-sum worldview that insists, falsely, that one man’s success equates to the next man’s failure. If Tom Hanks has two cows, Eric Deggans can’t have any cows. If Hanks’ farm is doing well, Deggans’ farm will wither. If Hanks’ baby is attractive, Deggans’ baby must be ugly.

The “solutions” offered also amount to the same thing; burning the farm to the ground:

For Hanks to atone, he must lower himself, and elevate black people in the place he previously occupied. That’s being an anti-racist. That’s Ibram X. Kendi. That’s the “8 White Identities” chart that says that the only good white is a white who participates in the abolishment of whiteness. And it is a Maoist struggle session. Deggans calls for “Hanks and other stars to talk specifically about how their work has contributed to these problems and how they will change.” This is the self-accusation that occurred during Maoist struggle sessions. The less successful, fueled by their envy, publicly humiliate the more successful.

Goska also makes the point that should be obvious:

Deggans can read white people’s minds. White people all think alike. And Deggans can speak for them. Any similar set of statements by a white man about black people would be taboo.

===========================

Lastly, there are places where the reverse is happening, with opposition ideologues taking over their opponent’s world, as Daniel Greenfield points out:

When Sultan Doughan signed a hateful letter falsely claiming that Israel and Zionism were based on “Jewish Supremacy”, a term popularized by Neo-Nazi leader David Duke, that ugly rhetoric wouldn’t have attracted much attention in an antisemitic time… except for one thing.

Doughan is a Muslim postdoctoral associate at Boston University’s Elie Wiesel Center for Jewish Studies.

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Burn Loot Murder doesn’t care about Blacks

with 3 comments

That’s no surprise to anybody who has studied what they actually do in the inner city areas of the USA.

However, as is usually the case with cults like Antifa, BLM or Stalinists, it takes former members getting woke to the bullshit for other people to start listening, although even then it doesn’t convince the True Believers, or those using it to grift political power, money or even down to the low level of blog comments.

Which is why the following little talk from one Rashad Turner is something to which attention must be paid:

In 2015 Turner helped to found Black Lives Matter in St. Paul, Minnesota. “I believed the organization stood for exactly what the name implies, black lives do matter,” he recounted. “However, after a year on the inside, I learned they have little concern for rebuilding black families and they cared even less about improving the quality of education for students in Minneapolis.”

Well of course they don’t. BLM was created by “trained Marxists” who see such things as tools by which Western capitalist democracies can be damaged enough to be destroyed. That’s always been the dream of Marxists and it’s always been a massive wank that has failed, as will BLM/Antifa.

But not before such Marxists cash in on the sweet, juicy capitalist loot, property ownership and “systemic racism”, all while causing a lot of damage, aided by people like naive people such as Turner who either did not know or did not care about such foundations.

I’d like to think that Turner’s revelation comes purely from a point of personal good will, rather than what I forecast in 2020, which is that in 2021 Democrats would find both BLM and Antifa no longer useful allies following the defeat of OrangeManBad.

Given the ongoing damage to Democrat cities the following should not be a surprise.

Still, there’s 2024 coming up.
