Trump and Jerusalem: MSM brings out the big guns

President Trump visited Jerusalem earlier this year and will effectively recognise it as the Israeli capital by moving US diplomats there

“Supermodel Bella Hadid has condemned President Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

In a scathing Instagram post, the Victoria’s Secret Angel branded the announcement as “absurd, unfair and one-sided”.”

Wow. I never knew that being a supermodel makes you an expert in Middle Eastern politics.

“Hadid’s family has strong ties with the regions. Her father – real estate mogul Mohamed Hadid – is a Palestinian, who was born in Nazareth, and has lived in both Syria and Lebanon.”

And I have strong ties to Britain but that doesn’t make me an expert on British politics.

“Bella said hearing the news made her “cry”.”

Never underestimate the power of Autism

screenshot-whaleoil

When people on the autism spectrum work together there is no limit to what they can achieve. Being on the spectrum myself I know that I can become obsessive when I am working on something I care about and a group of people on 4Chan became obsessed with capturing a protest flag that was flying in an unknown location while on a live stream. Their task seemed impossible yet by working as a team they combined their talents and located the flag within 36 hours using a vast range of techniques.

One of the reasons why people on the Autism spectrum can have trouble finding employment is because they are accused of not being able to work well with others despite their impressive problem-solving abilities and high intelligence. What this capture the flag mission proved is that we can actually work extremely well in a team with like-minded people and a shared goal. I actually think the secret to Whaleoil’s success is the number of people who work here who are on the autism spectrum. Once we set our minds to achieve something heaven help anyone who comes between us and our objective.

Shia LaBeouf’s plan to keep his live stream protest of President Trump going for four years was foiled… – again.

…His livestream feed continued to get crashed… leading him to move to a third location which he kept secret, according to Page Six. Here, the camera was set up only focused on a “He Will Not Divide Us” flag.

But some savvy sleuths managed to crack the code and troll LaBeouf again, with an epic move.

The media has killed any kind of sensible discussion

We all know that 1Law4All is a group of people that are looking to remove any kind of mention of the Treaty in law.   It posits that there are two classes of people in New Zealand:  Maori, and non-Maori.  And it is fairly hard to argue with that as we have a separate electoral roll, separate education and a slow push towards a separate legal system.

How this is Apartheid in South Africa, but natural justice and common sense in New Zealand is hard to explain.

So wanting a country with laws that apply to everyone equally, what sort of person would want that?  Well, if you’re Kim Vinnel, the journo who wrote the opening sentence…

A political movement labelled by some as driven by extreme right-wing racism is upping the ante ahead of this year’s election.

A flyer drop promoting both an anti-separatist book and the 1Law4All Party has angered one Labour candidate…

Wanting a single law for all citizens is now extreme right-wing racism.

Seriously, we have run out of words that make any sense.

So basically, when the indigenous people want one law for all it is just fine.  If white people want one law for all it is extreme right-wing racism.

How did we even get here? Read more »

The domino effect of Resolution 2334 continues

UN Resolution 2334 sponsored by the chairman of the security council, Murray McCully, whose strings were pulled by John Kerry and outgoing President Obama, sent a message to the Palestinians that Jerusalem was theirs. Now PLO President Abbas is pulling out all the stops to try to stop incoming President Trump from moving the US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. Why is he so against it? It is because it sends a strong counter message that the US recognises Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and therefore does not see it as Palestinian land.

Interestingly New Zealand shows its lack of diplomatic respect for Israel by locating its Israeli embassy not inside Israel but inside the Muslim majority country Turkey in their capital Ankara. We recognise the capitals of Muslim states so why don’t we recognise the capital of Israel?

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas sent letters to a number of world leaders on Monday urging them to prevent the stated goal of the incoming administration of US President-elect Donald Trump to move the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. to the official PA news outlet Wafa, Abbas sent letters to the heads of Russia, China, France, Germany, Britain, the European Union, the African Union, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the presidency of the Non-Aligned Movement and the Arab League secretary general, “asking them to spare no effort in preventing the US embassy from moving to Jerusalem”

Guest Post: Our world: The PLO’s zero-sum game

The opportunity now upon us may be lost forever as the PLO comes back to win its zerosum game against Israel.

Since its inception in the late 1970s, the Israeli peace movement has been based on one thing: hope.
Members of the peace movement hoped the PLO’s war with Israel could be resolved through compromise. Proponents of peace with the PLO hoped that Yasser Arafat and his terrorist minions weren’t truly committed to Israel’s destruction.

The two-state formula was based on the hope that Israel could reach an accommodation with the PLO. To wit, in exchange for parts of Judea and Samaria and Gaza (no one was talking about Jerusalem), Israeli peaceniks, who over time came to encompass all factions of the Left in Israel, hoped the PLO would bury the hatchet, build a state, or federate with Jordan, and that would be that.

In 1992, the peace camp took over the government. Under the leadership of then prime minister Yitzhak Rabin and then foreign minister Shimon Peres, hope became the basis for Israel’s national security strategy. That strategy was followed by every Israeli government since. The basic idea was clear enough. In exchange for land and guns and legitimacy, Arafat and his goons would be domesticated.

Obama’s scorched earth policy in final weeks will not go unpunished by Trump

It is clear to even the most casual observer that Obama is doing all he can to road block incoming President Donald Trump in every way that he can regardless of the consequences for America. Some speculate that he is doing all this in a hiss and a roar at the last minute because he was caught off guard when Trump won.

Donald Trump just drew a line in the proverbial sand. And President Barack Obama better simmer down very quickly, or face brutal consequences.

Trump officials made it clear late Thursday that if Obama continues to scorch America’s already-fragile foreign policy on his way out of the White House door, he will face sweeping federal probes when Trump assumes the presidency and control of the nation’s law enforcement apparatus.

Putin nailed it in his response to Malevolent Obama’s “Kitchen diplomacy”

While Obama is doing all he can to create problems for America and Donald Trump on his way out the Russian bear that he did his best to poke with a stick has calmly put him in his place. Obama blaming Russia for the hacking when he has provided zero evidence of their guilt is very un-presidential behaviour.

The silence from National is deafening, Bill English is treating his supporters with disdain

While Labour leader Andrew Little and Act leader David Seymour were quick to answer new media queries from Whaleoil, PM Bill English has remained silent and has refused to respond to the issue either via new media or the MSM. As the repercussions of Nationals’s controversial action at the UN swirl, he has ignored Whaleoil’s repeated requests for comment. My last three attempts to reach him are below. Does English really think that closing his eyes and putting his hands over his ears and saying la la la repeatedly will make this issue go away? The Americans are angry, Israel is angry and many of The National party’s voters are angry. He needs to explain Nationals’s actions and he needs to do it quickly before National bleeds any more support.
