The only pollution at Standing Rock was the trash left behind by environmentalists

Oh the irony, the only pollution at the Standing Rock protest site wasn’t from the oil pipeline, it is from the 2500 ute loads of rubbish the smelly hippies left behind.

Daily Wire reports:

Want to know the damage environmentalists can wreak on an area? Check out these new pictures from North Dakota, where environmentalists protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline left behind such a gargantuan mess near the Cannonball River that ABC News reported, “Local and federal officials estimate there’s enough trash and debris in the camp to fill about 2,500 pickup trucks.” Those trucks will have to haul the trash  away before the spring thaw, when it will pollute the Missouri River and other waterways.

On Wednesday, Morton County Emergency Manager Tom Doering admitted, “We’re really fighting the clock. There’s more garbage down there than anybody anticipated.” George Kuntz, vice president of the North Dakota Towing Association, told Western Wire:

There are roughly 200 vehicles down there at last count, ranging from cars and pickups to rental trucks. We’re going to have a very drastic situation trying to keep these vehicles from getting into the river – what everybody’s been trying to protect from day one. We can’t leave them there. We don’t know what kind of biohazard is going to be produced with all the fluids or any other garbage that’s inside the vehicle.

Winston on Labour and the Greens

Winston Peters has given an interview to Jo Moir from Fairfax and it is very interesting indeed.

He has started signalling where his preferences lie…and they aren’t where the left-wing thinks they are:

According to Peters, Labour were on the right track last year with their controversial Chinese-sounding surnames story, which revealed Chinese buyers accounted for 39.5 per cent of buyers compared to the 9 per cent of Auckland’s population recorded as being ethnically Chinese in the last census.

Where they went wrong is that “they lost their nerve”.

That was NZ First’s “missed opportunity”, if Peters had to name one.   Read more »

National MPs should be careful who they select as leader, otherwise this nasty witch gets to be Deputy PM

My commenters climbed in on her:

Isherman: It’s a pretty painful 8 minutes of viewing, but for anyone who doubted the sheer lack of class from some of the opposition in the Urgent Debate today on Keys resignation, doubt no more.

Hookerphil: What a horrible person she is

Michelle: 17 seconds was enough for me and l bet John Key will be glad when he no longer has to listen to that voice and gutter talk

Taking on Tasmania’s Green Taliban

The Palmer United Party is coming good, in Tasmania at least.

They are calling to account the actions of the Green taliban and fronting them in a very aggressive manner.

The Palmer United Party has fiercely attacked Tasmania’s Greens, saying they should be subject to a Senate inquiry over the state’s high unemployment rate.

PUP’s federal senator-elect for Tasmania, Jacqui Lambie, is laying the blame for the unemployment squarely on the Greens and says she will seek to instigate the inquiry after she enters Parliament in July.

“I simply believe that the Greens have destroyed all hope in Tasmania,” Ms Lambie said.

Labour and Greens want Stalinist price controls on power

Labour and the Greens are committing economic sabotage in proposing Stalinist style state control of power prices.

It would be a disaster for private investors.. all those people with their savings in Contact and Trustpower shares (including Kiwisavers) would have their investment destroyed by their proposal.

Labour is promising to cut the average Kiwi power bill by up to $330 a year if elected to government.

It plans to do so by setting up a single buyer, NZ Power, to purchase all electricity generation at a fair price.

At a joint press conference Green co-leader Russel Norman outlined a similar policy, although the Greens would introduce an element of progressive pricing.  Read more »

Gender quota wars last night inside the Greens

Read this email exchange from the Green taliban last night as they discuss gender balance for their list. Metiria Turei gets in on the act.

Subject: [GW] gender remit

Hi all,

The Maunga Rua Branch’s remit from last year’s AGM has been carried over to this year. I am the contact person for this remit. The remit now reads.

“Remit One to Alternate Male/Female Ranking on the List

Proposer: Maunga Rua Branch

The Party List at each election shall comprise all odd ranked places filled by one gender, and even numbered places filled by the other gender.

The gender filling odd numbered places at any one election shall fill even numbered places at the following election.  The gender filling odd numbered places at the first election after this remit is adopted shall be determined by a coin toss.”   Read more »

Greens are anti-jobs – Gillard

As regular readers will already know I am not a fan of the anti-jobs, anti-people, anti-progress Green taliban. They are luddites. Unfortunately they manage to hoodwink plenty of people into their clutches.

In Australia, Julia Gillard has attacked them:

A FIERY Julia Gillard blasted the Greens as being anti-jobs as Tony Abbott revealed the Coalition was drawing up contingency plans if Labor made Kevin Rudd, Bill Shorten or Greg Combet leader.

The Prime Minister said it was the Greens who had walked away from their agreement because their policies would hurt jobs.

“At the end of the day, the Greens party is fundamentally a party of protest rather than a party of government … a party that would prefer to complain about things than get solutions,” she said.  Read more »

Beating the Green Taliban at their own game

Whoever is running the Federated Farmers twitter account has clearly been taking lessons from bloggers about smacking up your enemy.

And make no mistake the green taliban are the enemy of all progress.

Anyway, Federated Farmers have been sledging out Greenpeace about their fanciful claims over “green technology”

Immigrants Having A Lend On Greens Home For Life

Cactus Kate has performed a quick google and found that TVNZ pin-up Sharissa Naidoo, 25 years old and supporter of the Greens Debt To Taxpayer Home For Life, has lived in New Zealand for just seven years. Most of those as a bludging student.

Naidoo completed a worthless return on investment, Masters degree and is working as a youth intern at Amnesty International.

If Sharissa is finding New Zealand a little too tough, perhaps she should pop back to South Africa after receiving her education at one of the best Universities in the world and see what affordable housing looks like. A bit mean? I think not.

That is right, Sharissa seems to have only recently even arrived in New Zealand. Six years as at 2012. That would be a couple of years tops in New Zealand’s state education system and then the benefit of New Zealand’s University system.
So after seven years and zero of those as a net taxpayer, she expects assistance to buy a house?
She even has published a paper on how unfair the interest free student loan scheme is. Debt as the price of freedom?

Student loans are interest free while studying last time I checked.
