Germany wants to stop migrants. So they put up a sign. No, I’m not kidding


My how Germany has fallen.

Captain Blackadder once explained that the Germans has no word for fluffy…meaning they were tough.

Well, they used to be tough, now they are as soft as pudding.

As a result of the persistent influx of Afghan refugees into Germany, a new campaign has been launched asking potential refugees to think twice before they embark on their perilous journeys.

The German embassy in Afghanistan started the campaign in Kabul and other major cities last week highlighting the dangers involved in undertaking risky journeys to Europe.

Billboards in the streets pose questions like, “Leaving Afghanistan? Are you sure?” and “Leaving Afghanistan? Think about it again”, in the country’s two main languages, Pashto and Dari.

But critics say the campaign is expected to do little to deter Afghans determined to leave in search of safety and protection.

“I know we cannot trust human traffickers who promise us an easy trip and a better life in Germany, but I will still take the risk. My family is not safe here. I am not safe,” Basir Karimi, a 22-year-old belonging to the Hazara minority, told Al Jazeera.     Read more »


Here’s a surprise: Aussies ignore the Andy and Phil grandstanding show

Andrew Little and Phil Goff have trotted off to Australia to kick sand in their faces and tell them how to run their own country.

Unfortunately for them the Aussies are having none of it.

Australia won’t budge on deportations and shows little appetite to examine support for Kiwi expats – but Labour senses softer ground among politicians from both major parties.

Labour leader Andrew Little and MP Phil Goff have completed a day of lobbying in Canberra after meeting Australian Immigration Minister Peter Dutton and Opposition leader Bill Shorten.

They received little encouragement from Mr Dutton, except for a promise to look at any individual deportation cases raised by Labour.    Read more »

Face of the day

Accidental Talmudist's photo.

Steve Maman is a Canadian Jewish businessman who has made it his mission to rescue Christian and Yazidi girls from ISIS.

In August 2014, jihadists in Iraq captured thousands of women and girls, and forced them into sex slavery. They are raped by dozens of men every day.

Steve heard about this unspeakable tragedy, and instead of simply expressing outrage like most of us, he took action.

87% of New Zealanders are scared of something that happens all the time

Kiwis with a guilty conscience over climate change can make simple lifestyle choices such as cutting down red meat or using public transport, new research says.

Researchers at Motu Economic and Public Policy Research compared the 2006/7 and 2012/13 Household Economic Surveys to determine how Kiwis can reduce their impact on climate change.

While 87 percent of New Zealanders were concerned about it, only 42 percent believed their actions could make a difference, researcher Suzi Kerr said.

Cutting down on dairy products and red meat, increasing a car’s fuel efficiency or shifting from driving to public transport or walking were prime ways to cut down on emissions, she said.

“I’m not saying we should all be non-driving vegans, but it’s good to understand our impact on emissions,” she said.

Food, transport, housing, and utilities account for 82 percent of household emissions.

The research found emissions increased with household age and tended to be higher in South Island households – possibly due to more heating in a colder climate.

The geologic record shows we have ice ages come and go all the time, and all of them so far have happened without humans driving them.  Every time the planet managed to melt again – get kind of lush and beautiful, and then something starts the process all over again.

To think taking the bike to Pak ‘n Save instead of the car is going to put off any change in climate, then good on you.

According to scientists we’ve had sea level rises in the 10-15cm range just during our life-time.  Yet you talk to boaties and harbour masters in their 60s or older and they’ll tell you that there is no difference to the height of the high tides compared to 40 years ago.   Shallow estuaries and wetlands have not expanded and overflowed during that time.

But more amusingly, 48% of us believe there is nothing we can do to stop it.  Certainly in New Zealand, where we account for something like 0.2% of the global “problem”, even if we went 100% “global warming neutral”, the likes of India and China will blow such effort out of the water within a week.

There is nothing wrong with trying to reuse, recycle, use better tech and generally live cleaner and healthier lives, including business and industry.  And whatever benefits flow from that, healthier air, cleaner rivers, less toxic lands, more trees through parks and reserves and so on is going to be great for all of us.

But the Luddites are running the asylum.   Academics that need troughs filling will continue to push research that concludes there needs to be…. more research.  And the Media Party needs scary stories between the ads to make sure you come back and read more.

But in the real world, things are just fine.

If it gets a little warmer, we all benefit.  Easier to grow trees, plants and food.  Tourism becomes even more attractive.  Southern towns become more attractive to live in.

If the water gets a little higher, we stop building so close to the shore.  And for older areas, we just ask the Dutch how they have millions of people living below sea level without panicking.

By all means measure.  By all means model.  By all means plan.

But the idea we can stop or even reverse what happens to climate is absurd.

Ordinary people from France share their experiences of Muslim Migration

On the website Bare Naked Islam people from all over the European Union were invited to share their stories about how the flood of Muslim migrants affects their lives.

BNI invites women and men in the European Union to post their stories about the Muslim invasion and how it is affecting your lives. NO NAMES will be revealed, just countries. The media will not post your stories, but your warnings must be heard before it’s too late.

The response to the sites invitation was so enthusiastic that I decided to post a separate article for each country. Today we will focus on two stories from France. This is the truth as seen through the eyes of French people who are not reading about Muslim migration through the lens of the MSM but are experiencing it personally.

NOTE: These were posted before the terrorist attacks in Paris.

Majority of Kiwis want New Zealand involved in dealing to ISIS


Are you listening John Key?

Stop listening to the terrorist huggers in the Maori Party and start listening to your voters.

The latest 3 News/Reid Research poll shows a clear majority of voters back New Zealand’s role in the war against Islamic State (IS).

But Prime Minister John Key still says he wants to get the Kiwi troops out of Iraq as planned.

Kiwi troops were sent to Iraq to train Iraqi soldiers to take on IS.

After Mr Key’s visit to Camp Taji and the recent Paris attacks, the mission has the strong backing of voters.    Read more »


Reality check: Islam = Sharia. Sharia = Islam


But, but, but think of the polar bears…oh wait

Polar Bears Up Close...***EXCLUSIVE*** BERNARD SPIT, AK - UNDATED: A curious young polar bear moves in towards the camera in Bernard Spit, Alaska. THESE in-yer-face polar bear pictures are the closest most of us get to one of natures most powerful predators. The heart-warming images show the curious white fur-balls as they investigate the camera held by one brave wildlife photographer before they jump into the water with him to swim into his face. Other side-splitting shots show a male standing upright like a human with its arms outstretched, just like it was waving down a taxi. The incredible shots were taken by veteran nature photographer Steven Kazlowski, 43, from New York. PHOTOGRAPH BY Stephen Kazlowski / Barcroft Media UK Office, London.

The Greenies would have you believe that polar bears are cute, cuddly and at risk of dying.

Unfortunately pesky things called facts get in the way of the global warming propaganda.

Global polar bear populations are at a fifty-year record high. Yet the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has just released a study suggesting that they are doomed.

Which version of events should we believe?

Well that all depends on where you prefer to place your trust: on reality or on computer models concocted by activists who desperately want the polar bear to retain its status as the ursine victim of the man-made global warming apocalypse.

If you prefer to go with reality, here’s the good news from Susan Crockford, who puts the global polar bear population at a very healthy 26,000. This would mean, she has notedbefore, that the population has increased by around 4,200 since 2001.

Ironically, the IUCN—the world’s leading conservation monitoring body, responsible for producing the “Red List” which classifies endangered species—agrees with her estimates. What it won’t do is admit that the news is good. (Well, good if you think having lots of extra polar bears is good. I’m not so sure. I’d agree with my friend Steven Crowder that actually they are evil: one of only two species—the other being the Saltwater crocodile—which deliberately hunts down human beings as prey).    Read more »

Finally, an Islamic leader with guts


I’m liking what I hear more and more from King Abdullah of Jordan.

He is standing up to Daesh where other leaders in the region are quietly acquiescing.

President Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry and Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton can’t bring themselves to publicly acknowledge that Islam and  “Muslims” are inextricably linked to terrorism. Remarkably, however, one Muslim world leader has no problem in speaking openly about the war “within Islam.”

Speaking at a press conference in Kosovo Tuesday, Jordan’s King Abdullah admonished that we are about to enter a “Third World War” if the civilized world does not “act fast to tackle” ISIS and other interconnected terrorist threats.   Read more »

Ex-CIA Director on Snowden: I would prefer to see him hanged by the neck until he was dead rather than merely electrocuted

I’m with this guy.

A former CIA director says leaker Edward Snowden should be convicted of treason and given the death penalty in the wake of the terrorist attack on Paris.

“It’s still a capital crime, and I would give him the death sentence, and I would prefer to see him hanged by the neck until he’s dead, rather than merely electrocuted,” James Woolsey told CNN’s Brooke Baldwin on Thursday.

Woolsey said Snowden, who divulged classified in 2013, is partly responsible for the terrorist attack in France last week that left at least 120 dead and hundreds injured.

“I think the blood of a lot of these French young people is on his hands,” he said.    Read more »
