Bring peace to the world by buying our ham

On the map above, all the coloured countries are countries where pork, bacon and ham are not freely available. In many of those countries, it is banned entirely.

Coincidentally, most of those countries are ravaged by famine, war and ethnic violence.

Countries where pork, ham and bacon are freely available generally tend to be havens of peace.

Help bring peace to the world by buying and eating our delicious Whale Meat Company Hams.

Due to our special relationship with our supplier, we can offer you a blistering red hot ham special right now, while stocks last to assist in your quest for world peace.

Here are the details, but you will need to be quick, there are limited supplies.

Whale Meat Company Frozen Hams have been taste-tested and approved by Oilers around the country and the positive comments are too many to mention.   Read more »

A year into this government and at least one commentator thinks they’ve done jack all


David Cormack isn’t impressed with this government…so far: Quote:

Last week was the first anniversary of Winston announcing he’d go with Labour and the Greens to form a Government. Consequently the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister did some sit down interviews with journalists to talk about how much they’ve enjoyed each other’s company over the last year and what music they sing to each other in the mornings. I think.

Because I’m not a journalist, they did not talk to me so I’m just going to tell them what I think, and what we can look forward to.

Government, it’s time to start dominating the story. This last quarter you did jack-all and went up in the polls anyway. End quote.

Nice sentiment but aid isn’t where it is at

Winston Peters has signaled changes in the way New Zealand will treat the Pacific nations: Quote:

The Foreign Affairs Minister has committed $70 million to non-government organisations working in the Pacific to try and build up aid and development locally.

It’s part of Winston Peters’ Pacific reset outlined in the Budget earlier this year and focuses on moving away from a reliance on international organisations.

Mr Peters announced $714 million over four years in Official Development Assistance as part of the May Budget and at an International Development Conference in Wellington today he explained what the reset means for international NGOs.

Golriz Ghahraman is right, but I don’t think she realises what system she is talking about

Golriz Ghahraman is dead right, and we must do everything we can to dismantle the system that perpetrates poverty.

That system is socialism, as Wibble pointed out last night.

Capitalism has systematically reduced poverty world wide. Socialism has perpetrated poverty.   Read more »

No Cindy, we don’t want to read between the lines, we want this ratbag gone

Jacinda Ardern wants us to all read between the lines on the decision to let a hardened violent and drug dealing criminal stay in New Zealand: Quote:

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern dropped hints on the “difficult” decision over convicted drug smuggler Karel Sroubek’s residency application.

Stuff reported on Sunday that Sroubek had been handed an unprecedented get-out-of-jail card in getting residency, instead of being deported after serving his prison sentence.

Science is too important to surrender to activist academics

Caption: Political hacks who masquerade as “scientists” are ruining the good name of science.

More on anti-science, post-modernist drivel from Capx: Quote:

“Glaciers are key icons of climate change and global environmental change. However, the relationships among gender, science, and glaciers […] remain understudied. This paper thus proposes a feminist glaciology framework.”

Thus reads the abstract for “Glaciers, gender, and science. A feminist glaciology framework for global environmental change research” by Carey, Jackson et al., published in Progress in Human Geography in 2016.

You might have thought – whatever other political pressures are brought to bear on the study of glaciers and climate – that a block of ice is entirely indifferent to the gender of the person who studies it. You’d be right, of course, but – and here’s where matters are going awry – also wrong, at least from the perspective of an increasing proportion of the Academy.

That the paper reads like one of the so-called “hoax” papers by James Lindsay, Helen Pluckrose and Peter Boghossian isn’t chance; their hoax papers aren’t “hoaxes” at all: just a demonstration of the violent emptiness of what passes for too much “research” in what those writers call “grievance studies”, and what I’ve called the “pathological subjectivism” of too much social science research. (In case you’re wondering: the glaciology paper is real.) End quote.

Labour’s crim-hugging extends to letting a lying, violent drug dealer get residency while still in prison

Iain Lees-Galloway should have stuck to filching press gallery booze, because he’s had a real ‘mare in allowing a lying, violent drug dealer get residency while still in prison: Quote:

A convicted drug smuggler has been handed an unprecedented get-out-of-jail card: instead of being deported after serving his prison sentence, the Government has granted him New Zealand residency.

Minister of Immigration Ian Lees-Galloway has made a special decision to grant the 37-year-old Czech national residency, even though he came to New Zealand on a false passport and is now serving time in Auckland South prison for importing drugs with a street value of $375,000.

Why are the journalists facing a dilemma?

There was an interesting post at the Kiwi Journalists Association Facebook group yesterday. Richard Harman of Politik posted: Quote:

I am seeking guidance here; This piece from Whaleoil publishes the text from Jami Lee Ross’s lover, the MP, to him. Like most political journalists, I believe I know who that MP is.
Should it be made public? End quote.

There is much handwringing, but most commenters suggest that the MP should be named, and yet she has not been…yet.  Read more »
