Green Taliban

I wish I was a Green MP

Oh I wish I was a green MP
In a green hemp suit
With my bodacious kutu catchers
And packed lunch of leaves and roots

I’d be like little Skippy
I think he’s retiring soon
I’d have verbal diarrhoea
Morning, night and noon

I’d throw around a lot of eyewash
And get the pip if it’s thrown back
I’d accuse the PM of being a diddler
And demand he get the sack

I’d demand to run the finance
“Up you!” is what I’d quote
I’d be tweaking up the budget
To run like a hairy goat Read more »

Leaked council email tells the real story of the Kauri tree and the lies the tree huggers told

via the tipline

This email has been leaked to us and it shows that the tree hugger, eco-terrorists who trespassed and destroyed a couples private property rights were lying about the tree.

It is from Julie Bevan the General Manager Resource Consents for Council and bolded highlights were added by WOBH.

Subject: Information about kauri tree issue last week

Dear all

Most of you will have seen or read the media coverage on the issue of the kauri tree at Paturoa Rd in Titirangi last week, in which the decision to give consent to fell the tree to clear a building platform was hotly debated. As always, a lot of context and accurate information was missing. Here’s a summary of what happened:

Two resource consents were granted by Independent Commissioners for the construction of two houses on adjoining sites in Titirangi. The sites are bush-clad and are zoned Bush  Living – which is a residential zoning in the Waitakere section of the District Plan.  It is also a Significant Ecological Area under the Unitary Plan and the removal of vegetation and trees for an access way and building platform is provided for within this overlay.

When the consent application involving the section with the kauri tree was processed, the council had communication with the local board and received the opinion of two separate arborists, ecologists, a landscape architect and an engineer. The applicant contacted iwi. Careful consideration was given to a range of options for locating the building platform that would cause the least impact on the bush, and ensuring the shortest driveway to minimise effects, etc.   Read more »

ISIS have done it now… Vatican goes to war

ISISflag copy

The Vatican’s envoy to the United Nations in Geneva has endorsed military action against the Islamic State group (IS) in Iraq and Syria.

The church has traditionally opposed force in the region.

In an interview with the US Catholic website Crux, Archbishop Silvano Tomasi said IS fighters were committing atrocities on a huge scale and the world needed to intervene.

“We have to stop this kind of genocide,” the Italian archbishop said.

Genocide?  According to Phil Goff it isn’t any of our business.  What on earth is the Catholic Church worried about? Read more »

How can Labour and the Green Taliban possibly be against acting against this? [GRAPHIC IMAGE]

Eight dead bodies hang from a metal frame in the Iraq’s Kirkuk province in Islamic State’s latest public display of barbarity.

The gruesome images which emerged on social media show the men’s limp bodies suspended from their feet off a tall structure in the town of Hawija.

The notorious black flag used by Islamist groups like ISIS is displayed above them as horrified onlookers inspect the scene.

Some of the deceased men appear to be wearing military fatigues but it is not known if they were Iraqi soldiers.

An ISIS fighter believed to be Abu Al-Rahman poses triumphantly in one of the pictures – giving the one-fingered salute in front of a bloodied victim’s corpse.

From terrynaki, last night

Was milking and heard that nut bar green leader say that the PM will have blood on his hands for sending troops to the Middle East.

Love to say to this mad woman that she and the Greens have the blood of 29 miners on their hands for refusing to let open cast mining at Pike River take place to save some snails that the Greens suffocated to death in an air tight container.

Will the Green Taliban ever be part of a coalition government?

thi-dating-dysfunctional-relationship

I don’t think so.  They are petulant and self righteous, and expect way too much in return for their actual support base.

What about Labour and the Greens, eh? Can’t live together, can’t live apart.

Just how the two parties can co-habit on the Left has been one of the longest-running conundrums since MMP was a pup.

How can they turn being allies – or is that just very good friends – into benefits for both? And how can they draw the line between potential co-operation in government and competition for votes?

And then there have been the parties playing gooseberry: once upon a time United Future; ever and always New Zealand First.

As centre parties camped on the fulcrum of power they have been able to force the Greens out of government, when Labour has been in power, leaving them no option but to grimace and bear it.

The real problem for Labour is that it needs to position itself as partnering with Winston instead of the Greens, because not enough voters like the idea of the Green Taliban getting near the levers of power on the back of a Labour vote.

A vote for Labour is a vote for a Labour Green government.  And how much did the voters run away from that?    Last time, they did it in unprecedented numbers.

Instead of learning from this, the Greens are even more self-righteous! Read more »

Party that campaigned on undermining national security upset they are not invited to the national security meeting

How precious can you get?   The Green Taliban have spent years saying the likes of the GCSB should be disbanded, our armed forces should not enter theatres of war, and the SIS and the Government can’t be trusted, but they would very much like to be part of the group of people to deal with national security issues.

National and Labour have shut all other parties out of Parliament’s most powerful committee – the committee that will oversee a major review of the country’s intelligence services. Read more »

Food Nutters Aotearoa, Ctd

There’s quite a storm brewing for the organisers of this week’s Food Nutters Aotearoa conference and speaking tour.

Even Twitter troll Philli Heard is all gee’d up over Huber’s speaking rort.

Maybe Philli Heard could actually ask Don Huber the questions loopy Green Taliban MP Steffan Browning is too scared to ask.   Read more »

Food Nutters Aotearoa, Ctd

unnamed-3

Following on from the post outlining the fawning over anti GMO activists by Green Taliban MP Steffan Browning, I thought I would have a look at the other ‘guest’ speakers.

Key note speaker at the Food Matters Aotearoa conference and speaking tour is discredited International Scientist of the Year 2011 activist researcher Professor Gilles-Eric Seralini.

Another key note speaker is Professor Don Huber. Another international anti-GMO activist, he travels the world warning about a mysterious organism, so scary and disease causing that he’s refusing to share it with the scientific community… even after eight years of no publications or any signs of progress.

The Green Taliban will no doubt call for an urgent Ministerial Inquiry after listening to Huber. But before doing that, they may like to look at the following.

Here’s a hat-tip to a site that has Seven Warning Signes of Bogus Science.  These are;

  1. The discoverer pitches the claim directly to the media
  2. The discoverer says that a powerful establishment is trying to suppress his or her work
  3. The scientific effect involved is nearly impossible to detect
  4. Evidence for a discovery is anecdotal
  5. The discoverer says a belief is credible because it has  endured for centuries
  6. The discoverer has worked in isolation and in secrecy
  7. The discoverer must propose new laws of nature to explain an observation.
