  1. That’s a few more dead muslims for Kea.
    Its good news if they got Al Bagdadhi (and two of his children) and maybe some guards
    But I think Trump is a bit wrong to gloat over his death so much.

  2. I don’t give a stuff about ball sports, never have, but the English team response to the ridiculous, overdone Haka was magnificent. Forming a V for Victory was priceless and the smile on the face of the Captain made me more proud of my English roots than I have been for many a long year. Now if we can just get Brexit done with NO DEAL on Thursday……….!

    • Yes I’d like to see Brexit with no deal.
      No $39 billion!
      But The UK will need trade deals with the EU quickly, beacsue of its financial powerhouse, and things like car manufacturing.
      Making a free trade deal with 5 million kiwis will not save the UK car industry if they all move to Europe.

      • You do need a trade deal to continue business. The EU has far more trade going into the UK than the UK into the EU. The EU elite may try to put on tariffs but the UK can retaliate with more effect, especially when Germany is on the brink of recession.
        I read the other day that it costs the UK family about 15 ponds a week in food and household costs because of the the UK being forced to buy EU food , so if that is accurate then I think the EU has more to lose in any “trade war”

      • When Britain is out is the time to make a trade deal. Once out Britain is in a strong position to make deals using every ounce of competitive advantage (which Treason May said they would not seek to use). I would be surprised if President Trump had not explained that “winning” strategy to Boris and he will ignore it at his peril.

  3. Obama is a war criminal. He must be interrogated and hung.

    HOW ISIS GOT WEAPONS FROM THE U.S. AND USED THEM TO TAKE IRAQ AND SYRIA

    As much as 90 percent of ISIS’s arms and ammunition were found to have originated in Russia, China and Eastern European states. The jihadis were able to obtain much of this arsenal as a result of former President Barack Obama’s support for rebels in Syria, U.K.-based Conflict Armament Research reported after analyzing 40,000 items recovered by its investigators along ISIS front lines between July 2014 and November 2017. By purchasing “large numbers” of European arms and ammunition and then diverting them to nonstate actors in Syria without notifying the sellers, the U.S. reportedly “violated the terms of sale and export agreed between weapon exporters…and recipients.”

    “The United States and Saudi Arabia supplied most of this materiel without authorization, apparently to Syrian opposition forces. This diverted materiel, recovered from IS forces, comprises exclusively Warsaw Pact–caliber weapons and ammunition, purchased by the United States and Saudi Arabia from European Union (EU) member states in Eastern Europe,” the report found, using an alternative acronym for ISIS.

    “Supplies of materiel into the Syrian conflict from foreign parties—notably the United States and Saudi Arabia—have indirectly allowed IS to obtain substantial quantities of anti-armor ammunition,” it later added.

  5. I will be travelling up to Auckland on Wednesday to go to this interesting debate put on by the Maxim Institute

    https://www.maxim.org.nz/mic-11-hate-speech-vs-free-speech/

    The CEO of Maxim is Alex Penk, the brother of Chris Penk, National MP. Below is a link to a video of him showing that free speech is important for those we disagree with and debate is better than name calling He gives a very good example on the issue of euthanasia.

    • You would need to mainline on Red Bull to stay awake for that twaddle.
      blah blah blah then 1.40 in – the compulsory ‘Orange Man Bad’

      What is the going rate to attend?
      if you pay me $120 an hour plus travel and parking I could attend.
      Just supply the Red Bull.

      However that is free speech.
      Penky can say “Orange Man Bad’ as seems to be Labour lite policy as per Farrar & Co. and I can say ‘Penk is a wanker’.
      All good.

      If you hang in long enough there is the standard Labour lite god fearing Papal line that euthanasia is bad. Subtly presented.

      If you are talking to Labour lite geezers, Charles, it might help to remind them that they appear to be against a policy supported by the majority of NZers. No friends Nats.

  7. Watching Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi die was like ‘watching a movie’: Donald Trump
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/world/2019/10/watching-abu-bakr-al-baghdadi-die-was-like-watching-a-movie-donald-trump.html

    “He said during the raid, US forces flew low and fast, and were met with gunfire at points.

    No US forces were killed or injured in the raid, Trump said.

    Planning for the operation began two weeks ago, Trump said, after the US gained unspecified intelligence on al-Baghdadi’s whereabouts.

    Eight military helicopters landed at the compound and were met by gunfire, Trump said.

    He said US forces breached the walls of the building because the doors were booby-trapped and chased al-Baghdadi into the tunnel, which partially collapsed after al-Baghdadi detonated the suicide vest.

    The president said a military dog was injured by the explosive blast.”

      • The K9 got caught in the blast when al-Baghdadi detonated his suicide vest.

        I’d like an update on the dog so we know he is ok. He will probably receive a military medal for bravery and get to meet the President of the United States. Well done that dog.

      • Seems like he was not one to be in support of his followers as he headed down the “No exit” to hide.
        Mr Trump said Baghdadi died after running into a dead-end tunnel in Idlib province, “whimpering, crying and screaming all the way”, as he was chased by military dogs.

        Baghdadi was accompanied by three of his young children, Mr Trump said, and detonated his suicide vest, killing them all. The blast mutilated Baghdadi’s body but an on-site DNA test confirmed his identity. ……

        ….. When Baghdadi detonated his vest, the president said, the tunnel caved on him. One of the US dogs was injured in the operation. …..
        https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/world/401918/donald-trump-says-islamic-state-leader-abu-bakr-al-baghdadi-died-like-a-dog

        Maybe Baghdadi thought it would make a fitting tomb or family mausoleum.

        However the koran, hadith, sunnah wlth ulema studies, will continue, to guide, with sayings, actions & deeds Mohammad’s followers.

      +Attacks recently in the Congo and remember, Sri Lanka.
      Then there are returning or already returned ISIS fighters to Europe, Canada, USA, South America, Africa, that may be sleepers for a while, but will school others, and reactivate when ready.

      By dispatching long-standing operatives to lead or help run these branches, the Islamic State seems to have successfully molded them in its image.
      This has helped it to maintain control over these regional offshoots despite its tumultuous collapse in Iraq and Syria.

      And in doing so, it has exported the specific jihadi brand it built in Iraq—known for its uncompromising, vicious, and sectarian strategy—even relative to that of al Qaeda and the Taliban.
      In Egypt, the group carried out numerous attacks targeting Coptic Egyptians over the past few years, and attacks against Shiites in Afghanistan feature prominently in the group’s operations there. In attacking Shiite civilians in Afghanistan and Yemen,
      Islamic State media outlets do not even add a reasoning for the killings. Being Shiite automatically makes one a legitimate target for the group, which is unusual even for other extremist jihadi groups.

      From the Islamic State’s point of view, the strategy of heightening brutality and sectarianism was effective, allowing it to rise from its original defeat in Iraq in 2008.
      In Iraq, the group pit communities against each other, targeted places of worship, deterred locals from cooperating with the government, and hunted local rivals who could pose a threat to it in the future.
      By the time it captured one-third of Iraq in 2014, it had established itself as the only viable force capable of controlling the areas and fighting the government, almost uncontested on a local level.

      …. Baghdadi refers to his group’s strategy for survival as a “war of attrition,” which also echoes the group’s propaganda since it started losing major strongholds three years ago.
      To understand where the Islamic State is heading next, it is important to pay a closer look to the long-game strategy that marked its original rise, not just the methods that came to be associated with the Islamic State in recent years, such as control of territory.

      The Islamic State’s history of rising from the ashes in Iraq after 2008 shapes the organization’s thinking more than anything else, evident in the frequent references to that experience in its publications and statements for the past three years.
      The situation for the group today resembles that earlier period, only on a broader geographic scale—which is why it is trying to replicate the same blueprint, which enabled it to eradicate its rivals, entrench itself locally, and ultimately present itself as the last flag for those fighting a central government.
      In Iraq and Syria since 2016, the group reverted to old tactics of assassinating community leaders, buying locality, and planting sleeper cells to conduct underground operations not just to fight its enemies but also to empty the areas in which it operates of any potential rivals.
      These tactics were detailed in a plan published in online jihadi forums in December 2009.

    • Earlier this month ISIS again endeavors to place its stamp in the Philippines.
      Just a bit of tidy up of some rivals as they were capitulating and not staying true to Mohammad’s guidance.

      ….. the dead were all members of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), formerly the country’s largest guerrilla group but which began decommissioning weapons last month under the terms of a 2014 peace treaty.

      A pro-ISIS armed group called Dawlah Islamiyah attacked a MILF camp ….

      …… Hundreds of pro-ISIS gunmen seized the city of Marawi in May 2017, sparking a five-month battle that left more than 1,000 dead.

      The MILF, sometimes with Philippine military help, has in recent years waged an armed campaign to flush out a number of pro-ISIS groups operating in the swampy farming region around Shariff Saydona.

    • It is easy to be an acquaintance, and the increasing level of friendship risks dragging a muslim into mischief, unless you agree and support his deen.
      So great respect, and nothing contrary, must be given to allow for “allahu akbar” or that would be to cause a great ‘mischief’. 🙁
      So how is the ‘friend’ to be measured?

      Muslims solemnly declare the Tawhīd: La Illāh ila-llâh (there is no god but Allâh), it means they clearly state that all other religions are denied, sinful and unlawful. It is the affirmation of Tawhīd; the belief of the heart and the confirmation of the tongue; it is obedience and submission.
      There is no ruling more apparent and significant as the ruling of al-Walā’ wal-Barā’ in the Qur’ān — after requirement of Tawhīd.
      According to Ibn Taymiyah: “It is not possible to achieve complete happiness by loving Allâh, except by the full rejecting all other things. This is what the words, “There is no god but Allâh” mean; this is the spirit of Dīn.”

  11. HOLLYWOODWoke Media Blames ‘Right-Wing Trolls’ After Viewers Reject Violent Anti-White HBO Series ‘Watchmen’

    The show creator Damon Lindelof, who also created Lost and The Leftovers, has said publicly that he made the show to be as “woke” as possible.

    “When I started to think about what ‘Watchmen’ was going to be, trying to think about it in the original source material, the book was highly political,” Lindelof said to the Television Critics Association this summer. “What in 2019 is the equivalent of the nuclear standoff between Russia and the U.S.? It felt like it was undeniably race and policing in America.”

    “This show is trolling the white savior,” he added.

    • That is absurd. Hitler had practical and well considered ideas that would help people. He also respected cultural and racial differences. He remains one of the few socialist leaders who really did care for the people.

      Merkel only wants domination and control. She serves a powerful elite who want to reconstruct humanity into a bland gray mass of obedient drones.

          • Stop being wet. Most of them are just as messed up and violent as their other half. They are not victims.

            There was a great interview on YouTube with the lovely old lady who started the Refuge idea. She would do assessments and find the woman were every bit as violent as the man. Her approach was to help the entire family fix their disfunction. She tried to keep the family unit together – preferably.

            When feminists took over she got death threats against her and her kids, for that approach.

            • I don’t disagree with you. Many but certainly not all of the women provoke their men & belt shit out of their kids. Which perpetrates another generation of women who needlessly provoke their partners & warp the minds of their offspring.

              I spent a bit over five years in the early 70s working part time as a bottle-store attendant & evening bouncer at our local pub. I haven’t got many fond memories of the experiences but two mortgages & two babies didn’t leave much in the way of options. I can say with conviction that the worst & most dangerous situations involved pissed, mouthy women egging on their partners & begging for the bash.

              Logic says that they deserve each other but in most cases there are family involved. There’s also the matter of totally different upper body strength between the genders which makes serious injury odds on. Also there are some men who are violent bullies who lash out needlessly.

              Sometimes I’d go home & watch my kids sleeping & hope like fuck that they’d never turn out like that. They didn’t.

            • Yes, but when a larger catchment of statistical data is used the facts reveal so much more:
              Just a snippet.

              Among large population samples, 57.9% of IPV reported was bi-directional, 42% unidirectional; 13.8% of the unidirectional violence was male to female (MFPV), 28.3% was female to male (FMPV)

              Gender and Racial/Ethnic Differences in Criminal Justice Decision Making

              Female arrests affected by high SES, presence of weapons and witnesses

              Women more likely than men to be cited rather than be taken into custody, but the gender discrepancy is less when a decision is made on whether to file charges as misdemeanors or felonies

              Men are more likely than women to be convicted and to be given harsher sentences

              “Males were consistently treated more severely at every stage of the prosecution process, particularly regarding the decision to prosecute, even when controlling for other variables (e.g., the presence of physical injuries) and when examined under different conditions.”

              No conclusive evidence of discrimination against ethnic minority groups in either arrest, prosecution and sentencing

              Dual arrests were more likely in same-sex couples compared to heterosexual couples, perhaps due to incorrect assumption by police that same-sex couples more likely to engage in mutual violence.

              Protective orders far more likely to be granted, and with more restrictions to women than to men (particularly in cases involving less severe abuse histories)

              Mock juries more likely to assign blame responsibility to male perpetrators in contrast to female perpetrators, even when presented with identical scenarios

  13. Going to the next level in Australia;- do not move suddenly, do not reach for anything, and keep your hands where the cops can always see them.
    So what defines a car attack? and for them to “move before an attack”?
    Sounds like “thought crime”

    Victorian police are required to directly intervene during car attacks on the public, a new policy has clarified, after confusion in the force about expectations during hostile vehicle incidents. ….
    …. The hostile vehicle policy is the first of its kind in Australia and will support police officers’ use of all tactical options to stop an attack, including the ability to ram offending vehicles, use roadblocks, box the vehicle in or, as a last resort, shoot the offender ….

    …. “Importantly, this policy doesn’t say should, this policy says they must intervene to protect the public.”

    Under the rules, which will be added to the Crimes Act, the first officers at the scene will be authorised to do whatever it takes to stop a vehicle.

    The rules specify they should move before an attack
    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-10-28/victoria-police-new-policy-to-clarify-hostile-vehicle-attacks/11644728

    So it seems our police may have made ready for this first, and just waiting until it is announced like wise.

    • We don’t have the problem here in NZ that they have in Australia esp with the shitholers in Melbourne.
      They made a decision which is more than can be said here in NZ.
      In Australia they deport dirtbags. This protects the citizens.
      In NZ the Govt seldom deports – esp from the pool of scum.

      Good decision.

      A vehicle can be a weapon esp. as seen in France in Nice in 2016 with 87 dead and many injured from a single truck attack.
      In Melbourne in January 2017 there was a car attack with 6 people killed and many more injured. There have been other instances there.

      Let the cops know well in advance that ‘lethal action is permitted’ as there is no time to piss around with a chain of command.
      Protect your citizens. Not shitholers.

      We know where the cuplits come from.
      Perhaps the Sandringham slapper can go to their funerals and wear a fecking scarf.
      At least it will not be the funerals of many innocent people and others crippled for life.
      Lets Do This.

  14. Good sense by some.

    They’re immigrants to Canada. So why are they supporting far-right parties that want to reduce immigration?

    “The left media would say this is a racist movement. And there I am with my turban. And it just breaks their narrative,” he said

    He says some reasons his political stance shifted are political correctness and liberal “indoctrination” about issues such as white supremacy and racial profiling (the former he says doesn’t exist, the latter he believes is valid in some cases)

  16. Some years ago a flying saucer landed in a park in Auckland. The alien got out & to his horror saw he had landed on one of the earthlings squashing it flat. Being a peaceful friendly alien, he decided to save the creature & put it back together, but having never seen a human he did what he could with the bits he could salvage, then took off to return & try first contact another day.

    The next day a man walking his dog found a pair of human buttocks alive & talking through its sphincter. It said “um ah ah I’ve, I haven’t, um, I haven’t used my, um, I’ve answered, um, OIA”.

    And that kids, is how Jacinda Ardern was created.

  17. Vladimir Bukovsky a Russian dissident, that remained true,and spoke out.
    Born, 30 December 1942 in Russia – Died on 27 October 2019 in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire after a period of ill-health at the age of 76

    Diana West wroteL- …. a line that recurs in both of his memoirs, “To Build a Castle” (1979) and Judgment in Moscow (2019): “I did all that I could.”

    We weren’t playing politics,
    we didn’t compose programs for “the liberation of the people,”
    we didn’t found unions of “the plow and the sword.”
    Our sole weapon was publicity.
    Not propaganda, but publicity, so that no one could say afterward: “I didn’t know”.
    The rest depended on each individual’s conscience.
    Neither did we expect victory — there wasn’t the slightest hope of achieving it.
    But each of craved the right to say to our descendants:-
    I did all that I could. I was a citizen. I fought for the observance of the law and never went against my conscience.”
    It wasn’t a political struggle, but a struggle between the living and the dead, the natural and the artificial.

    “I did all that I could.”
    —————————–
    ……. a total of twelve years in the psychiatric prison-hospitals, labour camps, and prisons of the Soviet Union. ……

    ……… voiced concern about the activities and policies of the Western peace movements. ……
    …….. Random House bought the rights [circa 1995] to the manuscript, but the publisher, in Bukovsky’s words, tried to make the author “rewrite the whole book from the liberal left political perspective.” Bukovsky resisted, explaining to the Random House editor that he was “allergic to political censorship” because of “certain peculiarities of my biography”. ….. [published this year]
    ———–
    ……”Torture”, he wrote, “has historically been an instrument of oppression—not an instrument of investigation or of intelligence gathering.” Bukovsky explained:

    “Investigation is a subtle process, requiring patience and fine analytical ability, as well as a skill in cultivating one’s sources. When torture is condoned, these rare talented people leave the service, having been outstripped by less gifted colleagues with their quick-fix methods, and the service itself degenerates into a playground for sadists”.
    ———
    ……..The European Union was a “monster”, he argued, and it must be destroyed, the sooner the better, “before it develops into a full-fledged totalitarian state”. ….
    ……. certain parallels, Bukovsky warned in his interview, between the formation of the Soviet Union and the European Union. ……..

    Well done and the rest of us must use the information with publicity, to value and keep freedom and liberty.

  18. Putin’s business investments may be effected.
    Russia has enough problems just to keep things going for itself.

    The Russian government has drastically watered-down its new package of climate change legislation ………

    Plans for quotas on carbon emissions at Russia’s largest companies, a new national carbon trading system and penalties for the biggest polluters have now been scrapped. …….

    Instead, Russia will only go ahead with proposals to measure and collect data on emissions as part of a five-year green audit…
    ….[nyet] part of Russia’s ratification of the Paris Climate Agreement. …..

    This is despite the fact that “the Paris Climate Agreement envisages a greenhouse gas emission target which is higher than Russia’s current emissions. So introducing the quota system is unlikely to be punitive for businesses.”

    The watered-down legislation would “essentially put any actively managed efforts by the government to reduce emissions on ice,” they added.
    https://climatechangedispatch.com/russia-rejects-climate-plan/

    They do not want the thin edge of the wedge to take effect, nor to have any effect on there industries and business.
    Life is not that great in Russia for many, and it is the poor that will have to bear the greatest costs of these taxes, surcharges etc..
    Besides if a bit more warmth, may make life a bit more bearable in many parts of Russia. 🙂
