The North Face: an outstanding company

I don’t think I own any North Face gear, or ever have, though I do think their line of outdoor clothing is stylish.

Apparently the company likes stylish things across the board, especially those which let its customers know that it cares about more than just profits, but the Earth itself:

Innovex is based in Houston and has nearly 100 workers in the Permian Basin.

Each year, the company gets a Christmas gift for its employees. This year, it was supposed to be a North Face jacket with an Innovex logo, a company Innovex has ordered gear from in the past.

The company providing the jackets said The North Face doesn’t want to support the oil and gas industry in the same way they’d reject the porn industry or tobacco industry.

“They told us we did not meet their brand standards,” Innovex CEO Anderson said. “We were separately informed that what that really meant is was that we were an oil and gas company.”

[North Face said that it] “thoroughly investigates product requests to ensure they align closely with our goals and commitments surrounding sustainability and environmental protection.”

Take that you disgusting, Global Warming, despoilers of Gaia! Begone from our customer’s ranks! No more will our skiers have to be ashamed at wearing the same clothes as some deplorable oil driller. Virtue and purity hath returned to our world.

Unfortunately for North Face their management turned out to be pretty ignorant about their own products and it didn’t take long for somebody in the fossil fuel industry to strike back – but in an unexpected way:

The Colorado Oil and Gas Association has bestowed its first-ever “Extraordinary Customer Award” on The North Face, saying it appreciates the company for its abundant use of oil and gas.

“To have such a large percent of what they make, probably three-quarters of the mass they ship is actually our product. So, it’s hard to top the all-in nature of The North Face as a consumer of our product,” said Chris Wright, CEO of Liberty Oilfield Services.

Fantastic stuff and now a US state government, Louisiana, has made it official with a resolution passed last week, that recognized The North Face as an “extraordinary customer” of “the Louisiana oil and gas petrochemical industries.”

The resolution highlights the “symbiotic relationship between the Louisiana oil and gas and petrochemical industry and The North Face,” commending the clothing company for “utilizing vital oil and gas resources so important to our state.”

“The North Face continues to offer a comprehensive collection of high-performance outerwear, skiwear, backpacks, duffels, and footwear made with nylon, polyester, and polyurethane, all of which come from petroleum products,” the resolution reads.

Congratulations to The North Face for these well-deserved awards.

In fact I’m so pleased about this that I think I shall go and buy a new ski jacket, and while looking at the products in the store I shall certainly offer voluble and effusive commentary in commending them on their wonderfully high use of fossil fuels.

I’m sure their sales people and customers will also be pleased with my visit.

Nancy Pelosi goes full Fascist

Back in June 2020, as Burn Loot Murder and their Antifa friends laid siege to Washington D.C. with firebombs and fists, Nancy Pelosi was interviewed about the events on NPR’s long-running programme, “All Things Considered” and was asked about whether the National Guard and other military units should be bought in, to which she responded:

“Violence has no place and violence must be addressed….But there is no reason for the U.S. military to be called out for this.”

Washington D.C, blitzed by BLM, June 2020

By contrast, after the events of January 6th, here’s an interview with the Acting DHS Deputy Secretary, Ken Cuccinelli, where he stated that:

…. the last up of thousands of these troops was requested by the Speaker through the Capitol Police. She even wanted crew-manned machine guns in Washington. That was rejected. There’s simply no use for that in a security arrangement for a civilian undertaking. So some of this has gone beyond any legitimate security need.

In any normal, sane world she’d be forced to resign over this, but let’s face it, this is an entirely natural reaction from her and her ilk around the world. And as a Democrat she’s also fully protected by the MSM.

The likes of the National Guard won’t be deployed to protect you from Antifa/BLM – but when she thinks her precious hide is on the line….

“Bitch Set Me Up”

Given what has been discussed in these two recent No Minister articles:

TRULY CHILLING, NO OTHER INTERPRETATION!

… which covered what happens in Melbourne when you’re the wrong sort of protestor, and…

I DIDN’T KNOW I DID ANYTHING WRONG

.. which covered what happens when you’re the Left sort of politician (Incidentally I didn’t know that California Governor Newsom is Nancy’s nephew. Figures: that means there will be no prosecution because of course)…

… I thought the following might be appropriate additions to the debate.

First up is Andrew Grannie Killer Cuomo..

Jesus! You’d think he’d have got the message back in June about what the rules are. The real rules that is.

And of course when a giant dies…

And those folk didn’t get the quarantine treatment when they went back to Washington D.C., despite its “strict” measures because reasons – and shut up.

Rules are for the LITTLE people.

Incidentally I see that another grandma, Nancy Pelosi, is now going for the Mayor Marion Barry defence, otherwise known as “The Bitch Set me up”:

I take responsibility for trusting the word of the neighborhood salon that I’ve been to…many times. It was a set up, and I take responsibility for falling for a setup.”

Wait! What? She “takes responsibility” for somebody else being to blame in this? Classic stuff. And she’s going to double down on this shit.

“I think that this salon owes me an apology, for setting me up”

And naturally the online gangs have started up…

Yeah Erica. Don’t you know there’s an election to win this year against BadOrangeMan? We can’t have plebs sliming the most powerful Democrat in America and by extension her Party and Nephew who have locked down California for months. That would be electorally damaging.

Enemy of the People! Straight up. Nancy I mean. Not Erica.

And the cherry on top is that being from that part of California I’d bet Erica has voted a straight Democrat ticket every election for years. Wonder if she’s learning anything from all this?

Dream on White girl, Dream on White Boy

One of the things noticed about many of the BLM protests in the USA over the last few months was the degree to which they seemed dominated by White People, and in particular youngish White Woman.

To that end I present two little videos for comment.

First up is this White Chick who is right there in the BLM trenches confronting the cops. Black cops that is.

“Racism is a White Person’s problem. Racism is my problem. I need to fix this. That’s why I’m here”

You go girl. Nothing says that you’re fixing your racism by yelling at other people, especially Black cops. I note that the two cops concerned do the perfect Buckingham Palace Guard act in the face of her lightweight shite! Although I swear I saw one of them shaking his head slightly.

And then there’s this White Boy getting Blacksplained by one Shemeka Michelle:

“I don’t need you to tell me my life matters. I don’t need your privilege to tell me or to justify who I am in America. This is my country. This is my land. My ancestors built this country, so I’m gonna walk around here as bold as I want to.”

Woah! Way to fuck up The BLM Narrative lady. In fact Blacks like her are very dangerous to it, and it’s one of the few things that actually do matter to BLM. That also why the MSM prefers that videos like these don’t make the rounds and that people like Michelle stay silent in the shadows.

Given the low quality of American university and high school education now it’s very rare for these kids to be exposed to a different set of beliefs. Hearing Michelle talk may have been the first time they’ve ever seen anyone with a black skin colour giving them a strong dose of reality.

Die, MSM Die – Double Standards, Always

In a previous article comparing the situation in Democrat-controlled New York to Republican controlled Florida, I pointed out that the MSM had played its part in attacking Republican State Governors for not going for extreme lockdown while praising the likes of Cuomo who did.

Now I had assumed that this was simply because most journalists are Lefties nowadays and will happily repeat any Leftist theme or idea.

But I’d forgotten that sheer political partisanship plays a big part too, while almost always being vehemently denied by the MSM.

To that end, in late April the august publication The Atlantic, published a story ripping into one of those Deplorables states, Georgia, for not having gone hard enough and lifting the lockdown too early, with this gruesomely vicious headline:

Remember that “journalist’s” name – Amanda Hull – because here she is just the other day, Tweeting about the new curfew imposed on New York City:


Woah! Could be that we’ll be seeing a new headline out of the NYT to top their old one, The Rioting and Looting Is Deadliest Where Democrats Live.

It does seem that karma is working its magic all over the USA, as the as the editor of a “Progressive” newspaper, The Indy Week in Raleigh, North Carolina discovered.

That’s her on the Left, Leigh Tauss – and my god, don’t we all know that Lefty look oh so well.

I see peasant, that you are still racist and privileged. We need to have a conversation. You just listen while I talk and enlighten you.

Anyway, after she expressed her support for the protests-turned-riots something bad happened, which she Tweeted about:

Some of the comments from around the Social Media traps were priceless:

  • “It was a brick of peace.”
  • “Did you paint ‘progressive’ over the door posts in the hopes the mob angel of death would pass you by?”
  • “Fire is blind.”
  • “Leigh needs to check her privilege. As a woke progressive she should be HAPPY to sacrifice her windows to this cause. After all, these people are simply expressing their rage at centuries of oppression. She should be standing outside the office handing them baseball bats.”

But my favourite Tweet response was this one:

Dear Comrade Stalin: Please tell me what I have done wrong and how I can atone. Here in the Lubyanka, I await your wise judgment.

Paraphrasing Oscar Wilde on the death of Dicken’s character of Little Nell: you’d have to have a heart of stone not to laugh.

This man WILL never be listened to again

My PhotoBack on April 18, I wrote about the British epidemiological “expert”, Neil Ferguson, whose hopeless chicken entrails computer model, had led the British Government a pretty dance on dealing with the Wuhan Flu.

The article pointed out that his models had provided similarly catastrophic predictions of death and destruction over the past twenty years with things like CJD (Mad Cow) disease, Foot and Mouth, Bird Flu, and Swine Flu,

Based on all that, I made the point that:

THIS MAN MUST NEVER BE LISTENED TO AGAIN
 

Well it now turns out that this guy, the “gold standard” of disease modeling, according to the New York Times and Washington Post, never actually followed the rules he lectured everybody else about following:

On Tuesday night, we discovered that the furrowed-browed scientist, who has been at the Prime Minister’s side throughout this crisis, is in fact Austin Powers in a lab coat. He’s been having an affair with a 38-year-old married woman who travels regularly across the capital from her home in south London to spend time with him.

What.
A.
Prick.

He’s resigned now, and with any luck will never be heard from again.

Now I have to admit that the lass making the booty calls – pictured here with Ferguson –  probably is worth breaking a few rules for, and were it anybody else NOT in a position of authority I’d probably be cheering the couple on as they gave the fingers to the Police State.

But of course that’s not who he was. As the article points out, this was Professor Lockdown, the guy telling 66 million Britons they must remain in their homes to protect the NHS and save lives (sob).

I also liked this quote:

Why is it that the most zealous advocates for reining in human behavior, whether it’s in Prohibition-era America or the midst of a public health crisis, always get caught with their pants down? I’m reminded of something the late Christopher Hitchens said:

‘Whenever I hear some bigmouth in Washington or the Christian heartland banging on about the evils of sodomy or whatever, I mentally enter his name in my notebook and contentedly set my watch. Sooner rather than later, he will be discovered down on his weary and well-worn old knees in some dreary motel or latrine, with an expired Visa card, having tried to pay well over the odds to be peed upon by some Apache transvestite.’

But like the writer I’m less concerned about the pathetic double standards than about what this actually means about our society – and who rules us:

It deserves the frontpage treatment it is getting today. For Ferguson’s booty call with his married lover actually reveals a great deal about the 21st-century elites and how they view their relationship with the masses. It’s one rule for them and another for us. They can carry on enjoying sneaky freedoms because their lives and jobs are important; we can’t because we are mere little people, whose silly work lives can casually be disrupted, whose love lives can be turned upside down, and whose families can be ripped apart. The Ferguson affair provides an illuminating insight into the new elitism.

And this regarding “experts”:

The Gospel of Ferguson is really a story of the confused relationship between politicians and experts today. Instead of our elected leaders deciding what is best for the political, economic and social health of the nation, and then employing experts to ensure this vision becomes a reality, we have politicians who bow too cravenly to experts and outsource political authority to them. And so, as some commentators have pointed out, Britain currently feels like it is being run by scientists. That’s bad for politics, which becomes less democratic the more that unelected scientific experts get to make the major decisions, and it’s bad for science, which risks becoming politicised under this pressure to guide the nation. Ferguson bought into the political use of his work. He backed the lockdown. Ferociously.

Fuck them. And the horse they rode into town on.

#MeToo Movement Achieves Room Temperature

My Photo

#MeToo passed away in early April 2020, at the age of 14, after a long fight with multiple diseases including hypocrisy, double standards and mediocrity, which had plagued MeToo since birth.

Born in the USA in 2006, and in spite of suffering ongoing recurrences of the diseases, #MeToo quickly developed into a powerful weapon for damaging and even destroying Right-wing people in the USA.

As recently as 2018, #MeToo appeared to be recovering and even gaining strength with heavy, round-the-clock doses of the new Christine Blasey-Ford treatment, which also included copious amounts of virtue signalling, colourful, ritual dances and loud ululations displaying the moral and ethical superiority of the carers.

Sadly however, despite being carefully watched and nursed, #MeToo appears to have been infected by the new Tara Reade virus, after which the patient declined rapidly.

However, while Democrats and other Left-wingers were largely ignored by #MeToo in the beginning, increasingly prominent members were being targeted and stories have begun circulating that MeToo’s death may have also been the result of interventions by multiple euthanasia practitioners, including:

Byyyeeee Woody!

.

.

.

The Democrat Party;

.

.

Senior Democrat Politicians;

.

.

.

Feminist activists, particularly in the Media and Hollywood industries;

and the MSM;

Joe Biden did 19 interviews spanning nearly 4 hours in the 5 weeks since March 24, the day a former staffer in his U.S. Senate office came forward to accuse him of sexual assault. None of the 142 questions asked by his interviewers have been on the allegations by Tara Reade.

Investigators into #MeToo’s death believe that there may be a connection between all of these #MeToo carers and Joey “Fingers” Biden. When finally asked about this from his home in Connecticut via Zoom, Biden responded by saying:

We need to be talking about the 600,000 Americans who’ve been killed by the Wuhan Flu and the 150 million killed by guns. And I’m gonna push that conversation by getting on TV and talking about this crisis just like good ole’ President FDR did in 1929. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate and I’m focused on getting out the votes here in Iowa on Super Thursday by getting on TV to talk about how, for a woman to come forward in the glaring lights of focus, nationally, you’ve got to start off with the presumption that at least the essence of what she’s talking about is real, whether or not she forgets the facts. I mean we hold these truths to be self-evident and all men and women created by – uhhh – you know – you know – uhhhh – the thing and. … uhh… and …. us….and… uhhh…. and… I want to be clear, I’m not going nuts,….

The interview ended when Biden wandered off-screen and the feed was cut.

Biden has vowed to fight the accusations by selecting a women to be his VP, and to find that woman he has picked his old Senate friend Chris Dodd to head up the search team. Dodd and famous Senator, Ted Kennedy, were friends and their high-spirited, fun-filled times with young woman in Washington D.C led them to be celebrated in Democrat circles as the “Waitress Sandwich Brothers“.

#MeToo’s mother, NOW, could not be reached for comment on this, but was last reported sobbing in her hospice, having never recovered from an encounter with a Presidential cigar in the late 1990’s.
