Same tactics used to discredit Trump used on Milo Yiannopoulos

I didn’t really want to write about this because I was concerned that by repeating the smear I might be helping plant doubt in people’s minds about Milo. The tactics used against him, however, must have sunlight shone on them because they will be used against someone you support at some point and who knows, the next target could be us.

Social Justice Bullies have been trying to silence Milo for a long time. They were unable to beat him with reasoned, logical arguments, they were unable to beat him with violent protests and they were unable to beat him by getting him kicked off twitter. No matter what they said or did Milo would pop up bigger and stronger than ever. They ignored his defence of freedom of speech, women’s rights and gay rights. They ignored his condemnation of paedophilia, they called him alt-right and a white supremacist no matter how often he strongly denied it.

Labour Party on Immigration and the refugee quota

I contacted National, Labour, Act, The Maori Party, NZ First, the Greens, the Opportunities Party, the Conservatives and United Future to ask them all three questions. Five parties responded to my questions and I published their responses in full and un-edited. My attempts to get a response from the Labour Party were unsuccessful so I looked at their website to try to find the answers to the questions I asked the other parties.

Immediately I had a problem as the Labour Party states on their website that…

Following the 2014 Election, Labour placed all policy under review.

We will continue to announce new policy through to the 2017 Election.

However, Labour has announced 12 new policies so far and while none of them was about immigration their very first one was about the refugee quota.

Does Sam Neill work for free? Thought not, so why does he expect Cadbury to?

I can’t stand socialist justice bullies like Sam Neill, who is calling for a boycott on Cadbury as if some crap method actor is going to make a single bit of difference to changing Cadbury’s mind on closing their Dunedin plant.

Like most members of F.A.G. he thinks he is important. He’s not.

Kiwi actor Sam Neill has come out in support of Cadbury factory workers, asking people to never buy or sell Cadbury products again.

Where did we go wrong?

…asks Whaleoil stalwart George:

I would imagine that some of us older folk have our moments when we long for “the good old days”. On reflection, they weren’t really that good, at least through my experience.

I only had a radio to entertain me and it only provided me with two highlights, “Life with Dexter” and “Money or the Bag.” Off shore sport was listened to on a short wave frequency and was often a very frustrating experience. Read more »

Independent legal opinion on the Dotcom decision

Author Nicky Hager holding the proof of having created a commercial product from my property.

Rick Shera writes

Apart from the overall decision itself that the appellants are eligible for extradition, a few very interesting things that leapt out:

  • We’re already starting to see the impact of the Supreme Court’s decision in Dixon (Dixon v R [2015] NZSC 147), that digital files are property. With that finding in hand, it now becomes a simple matter to find that “property”, when referred to in any provision of the Crimes Act, refers to digital material. So, in Dotcom, the High Court finds that the there would be a prima facie case under New Zealand law that the appellants have obtained property (the alleged infringing copies of films) by deception under section 240 of the Crimes Act 1961 and therefore that that provides a “pathway” for extradition. One wonders how long it will be before we see a civil action for conversion of digital files.

Digital files being property will be very useful in any future legal encounters where I get to question Mr Hager on the use of stolen property.   And then making money from it.   Read more »

The Bride Who Faked Her Own Kidnapping

Jennifer Wilbanks became something of a folk anti-hero, inspiring an action figure and a grocery store condiment called “Jennifer’s High Tailin’ Hot Sauce,” and numerous other items, even toast…

John Mason and Jennifer Wilbanks had planned a late April wedding with 14 bridesmaids and 14 groomsmen, but the wedding would get postponed when the bride got cold feet. For nearly a week media attention would focus on Duluth, Georgia, a growing city in the suburbs of Atlanta that the two called home.

32-year-old Jennifer Wilbanks disappeared while out jogging four days before her wedding, it sparked one of the biggest missing persons stories in America in 2005. Then the shocking truth emerged.

At roughly 8.30pm on a chilly April night in the small town of Duluth, Georgia, Jennifer Wilbanks told her fiancé, John Mason that she was popping out for a run. Mason, 32, thought nothing of it. She ran marathons – it was one of the many things they had in common. And with their wedding only 4 days away, Jennifer had a lot on her mind – a run would do her good.

But Jennifer, then 31, didn’t return that night. At 10.15pm, Mason went looking for her around Duluth in his car. “I thought maybe she might have turned her ankle and fallen,” he said. “Or someone could have beaten her up… No idea.” He called the police at around midnight and spent a sleepless night by the phone. He had little idea then, that it would be the first of many.

Yeah, because violence and vandalism is ok if you are a road maggot

To anyone else this looks like an incident of road rage, vandalism and violence…but because it was a chick on a bike it is ok?

A female cyclist exacted her revenge on a catcaller in a van who pestered her at a junction by chasing after him and ripping off his wing mirror.

The incident in central London was caught by a GoPro camera attached to the helmet of a nearby moped rider.

As the trio of vehicles all stop at a red light on a junction with Tottenham Court Road, one of the men inside the van can be heard asking: ‘Alright, want my number?’   Read more »
