Rodney Hide is wrong on Chris Hipkins

Chris Hipkins

Rodney Hide thinks Chris Hipkins has been unfairly maligned for his role in a dirty politics hit job by the ALP.

He’s wrong.

Poor Labour MP Chris Hipkins has been cruelly and unfairly under the gun.

Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop went full battleship, declaring, “Should there be a change of Government, I would find it very hard to build trust with those involved in allegations designed to undermine the Government of Australia.”

Columbus wasn’t nice? Down with his statues too then

Unhinged leftists keep checking things off their immense wish list of unacceptable items that need to be eradicated from history. More and more Confederate monuments are coming down and with that success, they’re already demanding the removal of monuments dedicated to our slave-owning Founding Fathers. And now, Christopher Columbus is next on the chopping block.

According to Fox 32 news, a group of protesters descended on Traverse City, Michigan, this week to decry replicas of the Niña and Pinta which arrived to offer ride-along historical tours:

Protesters surrounded the ships and stood by on land as two Christopher Columbus replica ships sailed into Traverse City Wednesday night.

Replicas of the Niña and Pinta arrived at Clinch Park to offer tours for what some consider a celebration of American history.

However, some groups like the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians strongly disagree, leading to protests.

The tribes consider the boats, which were invited to recreate history by the Maritime Heritage Alliance, “the black ships of death.”

If Whaleoil was based in Germany we would all be in prison right now

Whaleoil is already the lone voice of reason on some issues and despite complaints to the Human Rights Commission over a political cartoon about child abuse and the constant low-level buzz of offended Leftists we have never been threatened with jail for expressing an opinion, publishing a cartoon or for publishing historical photos.

In Germany, a journalist has been sentenced to six months in jail for publishing a historic photo. We have previously published ourselves on Whaleoil other photos that also show the meeting between Hitler and the Grand Mufti.

GERMANY – A district court in Munich earlier today sentenced German journalist Michael Stürzenberger to six months in jail and an additional 100 hours of charitable work for publishing this photo in his Facebook timeline.
It shows Adolf Hitler and Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, shaking hands in 1941 in Berlin.

ACT on Winston’s $20/hr minimum wage policy

New Zealand First will build our economy from the bottom up, creating opportunities for New Zealanders, boosting our economy and increasing productivity.

“Our goal is to increase the minimum wage to $20 over three years,” New Zealand First Leader and Member of Parliament for Northland Rt Hon Winston Peters said in Tauranga at a public meeting today.

“Drastically increasing the minimum wage will increase productivity and stimulate the economy.

“New Zealand First’s record on fair wages in this country is a proud one.

“In 2005, we campaigned to address the then low minimum wage under the Labour government.

“As part of our confidence and supply agreement with Labour in 2005 following the election we insisted that the minimum wage go from $9 per hour to $12 progressively by 2008.

“That is the biggest rise ever in the shortest time ever in this country’s history.

“We know that without a change in tax for Employers and Businesses that can’t happen,” Mr Peters said.

This is what ACT thinks about that   Read more »
