Give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses… but no Clinton voters

Do we really want people who flee their country when a democratic vote doesn’t go their way?

We especially don’t want members of F.A.G. coming here.

More than 56,300 people visited the Immigration New Zealand (INZ) website in the 24 hour period that saw Donald Trump elected president of the US.

The number represents an increase of almost 2,500 per cent on the average daily amount.

The INZ website usually receives an average of 2,300 visits a day.

“In the same 24-hour period the New Zealand Now website – which contains information about living, working, studying and investing in New Zealand – received 70,500 visits from the United States compared to a usual daily average of 1500 visits,” a spokesperson said, quoted by Radio NZ.    Read more »

We can look at the elephant in the room because Overton’s Window has changed

maxresdefault-3

Overton’s Window refers to the range of acceptable topics that can be discussed politically. The window is changed not when politicians change their ideas but when ideas change in the society that elects them. The Left wing is particularly good at changing the window. Gay marriage is a good example.

 Consider gay marriage, a subject once so far outside the mainstream that less than 20 years ago, Republicans and Democrats united to pass the Defense of Marriage Act to define marriage under federal law as the union of one man and one woman. Now? That view is such an anathema that it’s difficult to get — or retain — a job in entire sectors of the economy if you openly hold to the traditionalist position on marriage.

Donald Trump has been able to address some of the subjects that were unacceptable to discuss previously because American society has changed and is now more receptive.Progressives until recently controlled societies views on subjects like Islam, immigration, border control and groups like Black Lives Matter.It was socially unacceptable to criticise any of these three. Being white was something to be ashamed of and being patriotic or nationalistic was viewed as racism.

Key has no intention for immigrants to use New Zealand to get to Australia

Key has no intention for immigrants to use New Zealand to get to Australia and he has said as much.

The Australian government’s plan to ban asylum seekers who arrive by boat from ever setting foot in the country mean it’s increasingly unlikely they will accept New Zealand’s offer to resettle those in detention on Nauru, the Prime Minister John Key says.

New Zealand’s offer to take 150 refugees from Nauru still stands but would still allow for back door entry for refugees who are granted Kiwi citizenship to then move to Australia.

And Mr Key says the government has no intention of creating separate classes of New Zealand citizens that would close that door.   Read more »

Educated Germans are leaving Germany

German Family

Over 1.5 million Native Germans (many of who are highly educated) have left Germany in the last ten years. If the quote from this refugee is an indication of how other refugees feel about this exodus then they will not be missed.

“We refugees… do not want to live in the same country with you. You can, and I think you should, leave Germany. And please take Saxony and the Alternative for Germany (AfD) with you…. Why do you not go to another country? We are sick of you!”

— Aras Bacho an 18-year-old Syrian migrant, in Der Freitag, October 2016.

Eighty percent of the Germans relocating to Hungary have said that the migration crisis was their main reason for their decision to leave Germany. 98% of Hungarians have voted to ignore the European Union’s  Muslim migrant quotas.

…A growing number of Germans are abandoning neighborhoods in which they have lived all their lives, and others are leaving Germany for good, as mass immigration transforms parts of the country beyond recognition.

Data from the German statistics agency, Destatis, shows that 138,000 Germans left Germany in 2015. More are expected to emigrate in 2016. In a story on brain drain titled, “German talent is leaving the country in droves,” Die Welt reported that more than 1.5 million Germans, many of them highly educated, left Germany during the past decade.

Sending foreign ratbags home…just like the Aussies do

I can’t hardly wait for Labour to be outraged over this and cuddle these foreign criminals.

More than 400 people have been deported for a criminal offence in the past five years – the majority from Samoa, China and Tonga – with those on home detention likely sent home before their time is up.

Data released by Immigration New Zealand under the Official Information Act revealed 415 were deported in the time period between the start of 2011 and September 8 this year.

Samoans accounted for the highest number of these deported for a criminal offence, 73 in the same time period, followed by 62 Chinese and 39 Tongans.

INZ refused to divulge the details of their crimes because the information wasn’t available “without substantial collation or research”.v

New Zealand Immigration respond to my question about TB infections

TB

I wrote to New Zealand Immigration to ask about TB testing after reading on Breitbart that “the local Michigan offices of refugee resettlement agencies are hiding refugee latent tuberculosis (TB) infection rates from the public.”

Identifying and treating refugees who arrive with latent TB infection rates is an important element in state and national TB control programs because numerous medical studies, …have shown that high rates of latent TB infection among resettled refugees pose a public health risk to the general public in communities in which they have resettled.

…Four percent of the general population in the United States has latent TB infection. Ten percent of this group develops active TB at some point in their life.

In contrast, 33 percent of the population in the rest of the world has latent TB infection. When refugees arrive in the United States from other parts of the world with latent TB infection, medical studies suggest that their activation rate is higher than ten percent, due to a number of factors that reduce their immune systems…

They are off on a Racism hunt

1041355366c86e17996

Thanks to Susan Devoy’s website,  looking for racism and stirring up hostility between New Zealanders has become de rigueur. It has even inspired a New Zealand Herald journalist to write a piece entitled “Are New Zealanders becoming more racist?”

It is just like with “Islamophobia” where any criticism of the ideology is automatically labeled racist, bigoted and hateful. The theme seems to be that any criticism of immigration is rooted in racism, bigotry, and hate. There is no acknowledgment that there are legitimate and reasonable arguments about immigration that are based on facts and have nothing to do with an immigrant’s race.

Racism is dislike or hatred based on a belief that a person is inferior or of less value than another race. If I envy you or are jealous of your success that is envy and jealousy, not racism. I envy you because of what you have that I don’t. I don’t envy you because I think that you are inferior to me because of your race. Equally, distrusting a person because their values and beliefs are incompatible with your own is not racism as it is the values and beliefs that make you distrustful not the colour of their skin. If I know that you belong to group that supports killing cats for sport and I am a cat lover it is going to influence how I view you but that has nothing to do with Racism.

Understand the left-wing positions on immigration

It is nigh on impossible to understand the left-wing’s stance that all immigration is good immigration, and opposing immigration is racist. That seems to be their default position. Nevermind issues about protecting our own lifestyle or finding immigrants who are compatible with our unique culture…the default position seems to be the more the merrier…except of course, it is a direct influencer of the problems we now have with housing.

But can we really understand their thinking?

It is probably best to ask a left-winger…fortunately Danyl has provided us with his insights.

A few months ago I was discussing politics with a chemist who supported National. He liked the fact that John Key changed his mind about things. ‘Half of what I learned about science as an undergraduate has been proved wrong,’ he said. ‘I’ve had to change my mind and keep changing my mind my whole career. That’s what intelligent people do.’

I think Key’s tendency to blow with the wind has more to do with political expediency than intellectual honesty, and I said so. But I agree that the ability to change your mind is an important trait, and since then I’ve been trying to think of recent instances in which I’ve changed my mind on political issues, and I couldn’t really think of any, which worried me a bit.   Read more »

Winston keeps winning voters over with his immigration stance

JESSICA [MUTCH] Even though you call this tinkering, do you feel somewhat vindicated? This has been something that’s been close to your heart for a long time.

WINSTON [PETERS] Well, if they did something sound and substantial, I would agree with them, but take, for example, parental reunion. They’ve said it’s suspended now until 2018. Well, they’ve gotten almost 2500 applications. That’s why it’s suspended, sitting parked up now. When it comes to the issue of the skills category, nearly one in two are coming in without skills. They’re here now. And then when you come to, for example, the changes on the student visas, well, you remember what happened. Students were coming in for export education, then they said, ‘You can work in our economy.’ It’s no longer export education when they say that. And then they said because we weren’t competing with the rest of the world’s best education institutions, ‘Oh, we’ll give you a pathway to residency.’ You see how it’s perverted it? And then a lot of people in the export education business are actually from abroad in this country exploiting their own people, and the fraud is massive. Now, when we produced all that information, this government met us in Parliament and in the media day after day, saying that this wasn’t true.

Better late than never: Government cuts immigration numbers

National are trimming the sails in the lead-up to 2017 as their polls are showing immigration as one of the hot-button issues for the next election.

The Government has buckled to pressure and slashed immigration numbers.

For the next two years the effective cap on residencies granted will be cut by 5000 to a range of 85,000-95,000.

That is hardly a slash…hell it isn’t even a decimation.

Immigration Minister Michael Woodhouse stressed he still thinks the Government’s immigration settings are correct.

“Today’s announcement demonstrates the Government is taking a responsible, pragmatic approach to managing immigration.”  Read more »
