I know why John Key is helping Helen Clark

The Media party are all a flutter trying to work out why Key is helping Hels.

High up in a building that jostles for space on New York’s Third Ave is where Team Clark is based – the dedicated group of Foreign Affairs staffers tasked with backing Helen Clark’s bid to lead the United Nations.

This is where Clark comes to discuss her “talking points” for upcoming meetings, and for a “debrief” afterward. Notes are kept of her various meetings and conversations, tabs are kept on which countries might be supporting Clark’s bid and – though no one will admit it – there will likely be assessments of her rivals as well.

Another dedicated team based back in Wellington is also working on Clark’s bid. Coupled with the former prime minister’s legendary drive and energy, one thing is clear about this campaign – team Clark is not going to to die wondering if it could have done more.

Prime Minister John Key keeps making the point that Clark’s place in the middle of the pack so far has nothing to do with her credentials or ability but everything to do with geopolitical realities. You can make the same case about the team of experts working in the background of her campaign.

John Key absolutely kills any chance Helen Clark had left

Telling the Top Five that Helen will sort it all out by making wholesale changes, such as attempting to remove veto rights will absolutely ensure her future is scuttled.  

The last thing the Top Five want is any radical change.

Prime Minister John Key has told the United Nations it needs Helen Clark to be its next secretary-general.

“This is not the time for a business-as-usual appointment for secretary-general,” he said in his speech to the General Assembly on Wednesday.

“The next secretary-general must have the courage, experience and skills necessary to lead this organisation, to keep it relevant and responsive.”   Read more »

Perhaps it’s time John Key stopped hugging a corpse

Helen Clark

John Key seems still enamoured with the soulless corpse otherwise known as Helen Clark.

Prime Minister John Key has met Helen Clark at the United Nations in New York and assured her the government will continue to support her bid to become the next UN secretary-general.

Key’s meeting with the former Labour prime minister took place soon after he arrived in New York on Monday for UN leaders week.    Read more »

Time for a Aus-Exit from the “unelected swill” of the United Nations

I do enjoy a party  that has politicians prepared to call a spade a spade. Pauline Hanson’s party, One Nation has impressed me with its willingness to raise the issues of both Muslim immigration and the corruption and uselessness of the United Nations. This willingness to be unpopular with the media and to say politically incorrect things because they are the truth, is what ultimately is going to protect Australia. Where are the New Zealand politicians prepared to protect New Zealand? Apart from Winston Peters no other politician  in New Zealand has stepped up to the plate. Why not a NZ-Exit? It is time for some strong and decisive leadership.

One Nation senator Malcolm Roberts has urged Australia to mimic Britain’s Brexit and leave the “socialistic, monolithic” United Nations during his first speech to Parliament.

That’s nice, but they don’t get a vote

Apparently, the staff at the UN think Helen Clark is best suited for the job as head of the UN.

Helen Clark has won a poll taken among United Nations staff on who the best candidate for secretary-general is.

Miss Clark has been insisting she will keep campaigning for the job, despite disappointing results so far in informal ballots taken among Security Council members.

Miss Clark received eight ‘discourage’ votes in this week’s poll. Member states rate each candidate by choosing ‘encourage’, ‘discourage’ or ‘no opinion’.

She was placed sixth after the first poll and has dropped to seventh place in the subsequent two polls.   Read more »

Terrorists allegedly build base with millions of dollars of World Vision cash

We have been contacted by World Vision.

You can read their Press release on the topic here.

Due to the seriousness of the allegations World Vision says that they have already suspended operations in Gaza.


As you already know millions of NZ dollars donated to World Vision were allegedly stolen and  funneled directly to the terrorist wing of Hamas. New Zealand was not the only country to have its donations allegedly sent to Hamas. Germany, Britain and Australia  were allegedly ripped off as well.

Back in 2012  World Vision was warned that money was being sent to Hamas.

World Vision said it was standing by its employee Mohammed El-Halabi and was “shocked” at the charges against him.

Hamas didn’t blow all of it on loose goats, camel urine, and tea towels. They also allegedly managed to put enough of the stolen millions of World Vision charity aside to build this terrorist base complete with terror tunnels,  a surveillance tower, and an urban training facility.

Donations from the United Kingdom made to the Christian aid organization World Vision were used by Hamas to build one of such 70 military bases that operate in Gaza. The allegations are part of the June 15, 2016 arrest of Mohammed El-Halabi, a senior World Vision worker facing charges of funneling $43 million in charity funds to Hamas.

Susan Devoy campaigns for Helen – calls for even more refugees

Despite an apparent housing crisis we are also, apparently, able to take more refugees.

Even Susan Devoy, a woman who ignores hate crimes against Israelis and poofs, and instead finds herself in solidarity with Muslims, thinks we need to take more refugees.

Race Relations Commissioner Dame Susan Devoy says New Zealand should take more refugees to show it’s deserving of its seat at the United Nations Security Council.

The Government announced on Monday that it would up New Zealand’s annual refugee quota from 750 to 1000 from 2018 — the first time the quota’s been changed in close to 30 years.

But that fell short of the expectations of opposition parties and refugee advocates, who’ve been calling for the quota to be doubled to 1500.   Read more »

Israel’s UN Ambassador Danny Danon.

Today’s face of the day, Israel’s UN Ambassador Danny Danon, has made history.

An Israeli ambassador to the UN will head a UN committee for the first time since joining the organization in 1949, Danon was elected after a diplomatic campaign including opposition by Muslim member-states.

After months of behind-the-scenes diplomatic struggles, Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon was elected to head the UN Legal Committee (officially named the Sixth Committee) on Monday. The committee deals with sensitive topics including fighting global terrorism.

No country has more experience and expertise at fighting Islamic terrorism than Israel. No wonder the Muslim member states opposed Danon’s selection.

Fiji Ambassador elected UN General Assembly president

While the Media party wank on about Fiji and their “democracy”, and goad John Key into taking tougher action on Fiji, the rest of the world moves on.

Fiji’s ambassador to the United Nations, Peter Thomson, has been elected the president of the organisation’s General Assembly.

Mr Thomson narrowly defeated the Cypriot ambassador, Andreas Mavroyiannis, by 94 votes to 90 in a contested election.

He will begin his one-year term in September, when Denmark’s Mogens Lykketoft finishes his term.

The post is largely ceremonial, though it has a high profile and important procedural functions and Mr Thomson will oversee the process of searching for a new UN secretary-general general.    Read more »
