Panty sniffers

Panty sniffer number one has a thing for American government employees’ underwear. He just can’t get enough of it. The more he sniffs the more he is shocked that skid marks not only exist but in some cases are downright disgusting. He considers that he is doing the American public a service by revealing the details, ( the dirty, smelly details ). He rejects the title ‘Panty Sniffer’ which suggests that he is in some way perverted for having a fixation with other people’s underwear and that he is a criminal for rooting around in other peoples dirty laundry searching for stains and other unsavory marks.

Bill Maher cuts loose at the liberal apologists – They should wear t-shirts that say “Je Suis part of the problem”

Bill Maher has become almost a lone voice in calling out liberal apologists.

He said Islam was the only religion that will ?kill you if you?draw the wrong picture.?

They protested him speaking at their commencement.

Months later, Islamists shot up a French magazine for publishing, well, ?the wrong picture.?

Bill Maher, host of HBO?s ?Real Time,? took Friday night as an opportunity to take something of an ?I told you so? lap around the?University of California Berkeley students who protested him coming to their campus.

Those liberal students resorted to ?extreme bullying? like so many other liberals who want to impose limits on free speech when it offends them, Maher said.

If you?re one of those people, you?re not really a liberal, Maher added. You?re a ?baby.?

Trotter on the bull-fight that was Election 2014

Chris Trotter has now commented in writing about the election result.

He summarises:

Overall, the image presented to the electorate was one of John Key as the embattled matador. Alone in the arena, he faced charge after charge from a seemingly never-ending succession of bulls. But with every twirl of his cape and flash of his sword the pile of dispatched cattle-beasts grew higher. The crowd cheered. The roses rained down. ?Bravo!? shouted 48 percent of New Zealand. ?Three more years!? ? Read more »

MEDIA ADVISORY: Glenn Greenwald is a fraud

I’m getting sick of having to do your job for you. ? Why are you calling Greenwald a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist? ?He’s nothing of the sort. ?Five minutes of research would have told you that.

Step 1: ?Go to?http://www.pulitzer.org/ and search for his name.

Would you be surprised to find he doesn’t come up as a winner?

Step 2: Check what he has actually won: ?https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_George_Polk_Award_winners

Yes, but Cam, you say, he was?working for the organisation that won a Pulitzer.

So was the receptionist. ?And the guy cleaning out the toilets. ?I don’t think they go around claiming themselves Pulitzer prize winners.

Step 3: Search a bit deeper (by the way, this is what a REAL email looks like) ? Read more »

Kim Dotcom?s hired political party failed to deliver

Ian Apperly writes

Following Greenwald the (unsurprising) start of the show Edward Snowden beamed in from Russia to tell us what he thought. There were really only two statements that came out of that. Firstly, the cable had been tapped and secondly, that the NSA had a presence in Auckland and ?further North?. He also said that he had regularly come across New Zealand data as part of his job as an analyst. No evidence of any of this was provided, we assume that Snowden, a traitor to his own country and a hero of the far right and far left, is telling us the truth.

New Zealand has had foreign spies here as long as I can remember. Every now and then they really screw it up. And we see it. Americans, Russians, Israelis, and other nation states have all been caught out here. So the NSA having a presence is zero surprise. The cable tapping was a given, as we?ve seen. It doesn?t matter HOW it is tapped by the way. Pacific Fibre have said they have no knowledge of it, yet there are soft ways to do it, it could be done at the far ends, their are a myriad of ways. We know they are.

I had a friend in the eighties who?s father was in the SIS and spied on the Russian spies in and around Karori. They would park in one particular elderly woman?s driveway to keep an eye on the Russians, so the story goes, because she would creep out with cups of tea, biscuits, and scones to feed the boys who were ?keeping an eye on the naughty Russians.?

Kim Dotcom should ask for a refund

Glenn Greenwald was embarrassing. ? He has no ?idea about anything to do with New Zealand, yet he was trotted out to add his Pulitzer to the credibility deficit in the hope it would give?the Big Reveal more gravitas.

Matthew Hooton is onto it

Why don’t you see this in the media?

Glenn Greenwald may be a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, but he isn’t stupid. ?He well knows that this info-war he’s running on behalf of Kim Dotcom is only being done because Dotcom is trying to get his final revenge on John Key.

And, he’s doing it anyway.

Greenwald is happy to interfere in the free and open elections of another country to help out one man’s personal need for revenge. ? Pullitzer for Hire. ?Clearly.

His partners in this are a man who can’t leave Russia because the western world is going to hand him back to the USA for being a traitor, and a man who can’t leave an embassy because the western world is going to hand him to Sweden to face rape charges.

New Zealand isn’t some corrupt tin pot dictatorship that has to be made to answer to the world community?because of human rights abuses. ?New Zealand constantly comes at or near the top for being the most friendly, safe and non-corrupt of countries.

And yet, we have people, criminals, ?banding together to take down a democratically elected and highly popular government because one man wants to exact his revenge and has the money to hire the guns.

Tracy Watkins on her high horse

…Key is utterly convinced that he knows what Greenwald has and is busily rubbishing him as “Dotcom’s little henchman” brought to New Zealand to influence the election and “bamboozle” ordinary Kiwis.

Some of Key’s ministers have gone even further, accusing Greenwald of half baked conspiracy theories and being part of a left wing plot.

That is stronger rhetoric than most other foreign leaders have adopted over the explosive revelations from Greenwald and former defence contractor Edward Snowden.

But what Key has so far failed to adequately address is his Government’s failure to front up a year ago to the fact that the GCSB was considering tools that would enable it to expand its surveillance activities at the very time the country was embroiled in a debate about the extent of its powers.

I can’t understand how precious the media are about this. ?The whole point of national and international security is that it takes place with the least amount of disclosure possible. ? What sort of brain damaged PM would come out and lay out all the tools, the plans and exactly how they go about it? ? Read more »
