Blithering Idiots of our Time

The delusions of John Minto

The next big thing that Hone Harawira and John Minto has got going is Mana News.

And they are straight into bizarre conspiracy theories…and likely a few defamation suits.

Eleanor Catton has managed to reveal the mechanism of the National party media dictatorship this could be extremely dangerous for the survival of our democracy. According to Sean Plunkett you are not permitted to criticise the National government its unpatriotic and against the people of New Zealand.  Too many reporters within journalism have intimate relationships with the national party that are a conflict of interest designed to mislead the New Zealand public. These reporters are holding back real journalists like Andrea Vance. It is unnatural for the press gallery to be uncritical of a seven year old government. The Prime minister office is pouring to many resources into dirty politics and controling the media and little effort to tackle the housing crisis or poverty reduction.

The conspiracy would be more believable if they could spell Sean Plunket’s name properly. I’m surprised that they haven’t substituted every ‘s’ for a ‘$’.

Stupid is as Stupid does [UPDATED]

UPDATED:  We can confirm what the NZ Herald could not

ces

 

Some people are just retarded.


A woman caught sitting on a jet ski as it was towed by a truck along an Auckland motorway has been labelled careless and stupid.

The over-enthusiastic jet skier was snapped in a photo by a passing motorist on the North-Western motorway in the area of the inner-city suburb of Newton – where other vehicles passing her could reach speeds of 100 kmh.

The photo has become a viral hit online.

Police spokeswoman Noreen Hegarty rebuked the woman for her life-threatening stunt. ”Stupidity on the roads causes heartbreaks in homes,” she said.

She said the woman and the driver were committing a traffic offence. If police track them down, they risk penalties for dangerous driving and having an unrestrained passenger in tow.

Hegarty said it was unclear when the offending occurred despite the photo going viral last week.

She said police were asking people to come forward and identify the woman.

Organ donors!

A good judge

Why can’t we have judges like this in New Zealand?

idiot4n-2-web

Richard Dameron, 58, began a week-long vigil in front of a Cleveland police station as penance for drunkenly threatening cops.

A man who threatened police officers in Cleveland has been forced to stand near a police station with a sign describing himself as an idiot.

A judge in Ohio ordered 58-year-old Richard Dameron to stand outside a local police station with a sign bearing an apology.

Dameron, who was convicted of threatening officers in 911 calls, began the vigil on Monday and must stand outside for three hours each day for the rest of the week.

Speaking of his punishment, he said:

“I’ll stand up and be a man and do what I’ve got to do and get it over with. I apologised to all the officers. I get drunk a lot of times and I make a fool out of myself.”

Bold black writing on the yellow sign reads:

“I apologise to Officer Simone and all police officers for being an idiot calling 911 threatening to kill you. I’m sorry and it will never happen again.”

His public shaming is not the first of its kind in the city.

Cleveland Municipal Court Judge Pinkey Carr who sentenced Dameron, previously made a woman wear an “idiot” sign in public for driving onto the pavement to overtake a school bus.

Stupid is as Stupid Does, Ctd

NZ Herald

Apparently alcohol was involved….you think? Surely he qualifies for the key to the city in Palmerston North with a cunning stunt like that:

A Northern Territory man may be flown to Adelaide after a party trick involving setting off fire crackers between his buttocks went badly wrong.

The 23-year-old man was at a party in the Darwin suburb of Rapid Creek on Saturday night when he decided to let the cracker off, NT Police said.

“It appears a party was in full progress when a young male decided to place a firework between the cheeks of his bottom and light it,” said Senior Sergeant Garry Smith.

“What must of seemed to be a great idea at the time has backfired, resulting in the male receiving quite severe and very painful burns to his cheeks, back and private bits,” Snr Sgt Smith said.

Alcohol was a possible factor involved in the stunt, police said.

Police ticket quota filled tonight?

Stuff.co.nz

It looks like the Police are going to fill their quota for ticketing un-roadworthy vehicles tonight. If brains were dynamite these tools wouldn’t have enough to blow their nose:

Boy racers are planning a “big boy racer car cruze” from Porirua to Wellington tonight for Daniel Briant, whose car was the first to be crushed under new boy racer legislation.

Police crushed the 19-year old’s Nissan Laurel yesterday sparking an outcry on Facebook.

Police revealed Briant was caught doing multiple burnouts in the middle of State Highway 1 near Paraparaumu in front of an off-duty police officer and children.

Less than three hours after receiving his third strike from Porirua District Court, he was back behind the wheel, performing a burnout.

Briant posted a message on his Facebook page on Wednesday lamenting the loss of his beloved car:
“oh how I miss you Laurel lol; fun times FTP.”

A supporter castigated the police, “f…. the police.”

Tonight’s ride was advertised on the Facebook site “Porirua Buy/Sell/Trade”, stating “stop the car crushin law. 9-10.30pm. Big boy racer cruze – we are doing this 4 the guy who got his kar krushed in lower hutt.”

 

Police brutality? You be the judge

TV3

Last night TV3 tried to outdo recent media coverage focusing on the poor crims, such as the Nazi noodle boy in Masterton.

In their wisdom, TV3 decided that claims of brutality from this woman were legitimate enough to warrant a feature on the news.

Before you watch and decide for yourself if there is a case to answer, here are the facts as described (very quietly) in the story:

  • She has been in trouble with the cops before.
  • She was drink-driving and failed to stop for police.
  • She is to appear in court charged with assaulting a police officer.

Having read all that, watch the story and try and work out where the reporter’s sympathies lie.

Interesting, wasn’t it? And a special “stupidest comment of the week so far” award for this reporter, for the line:

“Pahina admits she has broken the law before, but says this is the first time the law has left her broken.”

Well done to all involved in this story. They must be very proud.

Emails from a Munter

Remember Billie-May Graham, she is the munter with a vicious dog and the racist, nazi fan I blogged about on March 26.

She is dumber than a sack of hammers and has finally worked out how to use Google…seems she has found the blog post and she isn’t happy. In fact here is the email trail of last nights abuse.

This has now been handed to the police along with the txt message threats she delivered as well.

Looking forward to hearing from whatever flea lawyer she has. Since her Facebook page was still unprotected I thought I would enlighten her about what information was out there:

Whaleoil  wrote:

You probably have a flea lawyer, like most scrubber losers.

Then she followed up with a real threat, the one that made me drop into the local constabulary with a print out of everything plus the txt msgs. I have also let her ISP know that she has used their service to issue threats of GBH.

Oh dear…how dumb can you get…didn’t they notice all the mud and water and sand?

Three Japanese tourists came unstuck on their planned Australian holiday on Thursday when they abandoned their hire car in Moreton Bay after they tried to “drive” to North Stradbroke Island.

The low tide and a GPS navigation system lured them into the bay at Oyster Point at Cleveland.

A firm gravel surface quickly gave way to the renowned bay mangrove mud and the Hyundai Getz was soon up to its axles, but not before they managed to travel about 500 metres.

Their planned adventure to Straddie ended at 11am and the incoming tide soon forced them to seek help and abandon the vehicle.

By 3pm the car was stranded in two metres of water and the subject of much amusement from onlookers on the shore and passing boat and ferry traffic.

The Tokyo students had wanted to take a day trip to Straddie and believed their GPS unit would be able to guide them there. The GPS forgot to mention the 15 kilometres of water and mud between the mainland and the island.

Yuzu Noda, 21, said she was listening to the GPS and “it told us we could drive down there”.

“It kept saying it would navigate us to a road. We got stuck … there’s lots of mud.”

Dumber than a sack of hammers

If you ever needed a reason for the removal of hereditary titles and the risk of inbreeding amongst the upper classes, this is it.

Boing Boing reports:

On February 16th, Lord David James of Blackheath (a Conservative life peer) spoke for 11 minutes in the UK House of Lords about a supposed $15 trillion federal reserve conspiracy that involved more gold than has ever been mined. It turned out he had fallen for a widespread scam.

“Mr. Riyadi has sent me a remarkable document dated February 2006,” Lord James continued, “in which the American Government have called him to a meeting with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.” That meeting, he said, “was witnessed by Mr Alan Greenspan, who signed for the Federal Reserve Bank of New York of which he was chairman, as well as chairman of the real Federal Reserve in Washington. It is signed by Mr Timothy Geithner as a witness on behalf of the International Monetary Fund. The IMF sent two witnesses, the other being Mr Yusuke Horiguchi.”

“These gentlemen have signed as witnesses,” he continued, “to the effect that this deal is a proper deal. There are a lot of other signatures on the document. I do not have a photocopy; I have an original version of the contract.

“Under the contract, the American Treasury has apparently got the Federal Reserve Bank of New York to offer to buy out the bonds issued to Mr Riyadi to replace the cash which has been taken from him over the previous 10 years. It is giving him $500 million as a cash payment to buy out worthless bonds. That is all in the agreement and it is very remarkable.”

Riyadi, as the tale continues, supposedly had 750,000 tons of gold backing the $15 trillion the United States took from him to prop up the U.S. dollar.

The World Gold Council, however, estimates the only 165,000 tons of gold have been mined in the history of the world.
