Media Wrong Again

Who would have thought the Wikileaks document dump would reveal that (a) China is about to dump North Korea

• South Korea’s vice-foreign minister said he was told by two named senior Chinese officials that they believed Korea should be reunified under Seoul’s control, and that this view was gaining ground with the leadership in Beijing…

In highly sensitive discussions in February this year, the-then South Korean vice-foreign minister, Chun Yung-woo, told a US ambassador, Kathleen Stephens, that younger generation Chinese Communist party leaders no longer regarded North Korea as a useful or reliable ally and would not risk renewed armed conflict on the peninsula, according to a secret cable to Washington…


and (b) the Ayrab world is desperate for the US to invade Iran

According to the documents, Saudi King Abdullah frequently urged the United States to destroy Iran's nuclear facilities, to "cut off the head of the snake." According to the Guardian, he warned that Iran's program could trigger a nuclear arms race in the region.

and (c) North Korea has just sold Iran 19 ICBMs capable of hitting Moscow and a hell of a lot of other places a lot further away than Tel Aviv

Iran obtained 19 of the missiles from North Korea, according to a cable dated Feb. 24 of this year. The cable is a detailed, highly classified account of a meeting between top Russian officials and an American delegation led by Vann H. Van Diepen, an official with the State Department’s nonproliferation division who, as a national intelligence officer several years ago, played a crucial role in the 2007 assessment of Iran’s nuclear capacity.

The missiles could for the first time give Iran the capacity to strike at capitals in Western Europe or easily reach Moscow, and American officials warned that their advanced propulsion could speed Iran’s development of intercontinental ballistic missiles.


and (c) Israel is urging caution and advising against military action against Iran.

Summary: Israel urges international pressure on Tehran but worries US may move towards a less tough EU position. Israel is aware that it will be harder to destroy Iranian nuclear sites than it was Iraq’s reactor in 1981. Expects Iran to hit back at coalition forces in Iraq and the Gulf and launch terrorist attacks


Makes you wonder just who the hell all these unnamed 'senior sources' are who provide the media with the bullshit that passes for news and informed commentary.

Sounds to me like the New York Times rings up the Guardian who just phoned the BBC who just heard from the tea lady at the London School of Economics who overheard someone talking about their latest Middle East computer models.

Koff Koff Splutter Gurgle

The ACT party at last has despatched its toxic termite Peter Tashkoff to Tashkent which, for ACT, is close enough to Siberia to be comfortable.

He has been expelled from the party. The only thing which surprises Adolf is that it took so long. Can anyone imagine National or Labour stuffing around for so long with an idiot who has publicly machinated to bring down the leader? Yes, the same leader who is the only reason the party has any presence in Parliament?

The fool even blathered about forming a new party of the right.

"The name being bandied around is the Reform Party ... There are people frantic to start a new party today."

But he did not think it was the right time and he would revisit the issue in the new year.

Funny how right now is never the right time.

Adolf has a better name for his new party. The HWL Party

The Hasbeens, Wannabes and Losers Party. No money, no members and no brains.

CVs have been received from Roger Douglas and Heather Roy.

On his way to political exile, Mr Tashkoff might reflect on the real meaning of the word 'loyalty' and he might also get a hair cut.

Go The Libs

Update: Brumby concedes defeat.

Its election night in Victoria and the latest polls indicate the Coalition might win. Most commentators predict a hung parliament.

Update: 2012hrs: ABC Australia predicting Coalition win with possibly 47 seats out of 90.

2053: So far with just under one percent counted the Coalition is a country mile ahead with National streets ahead of anyone else. Well, obviously that's because it's mostly rural booths counted thus far.

2100: 2.5% counted and Coalition 57%, Labor 26%. Don't get too excited, this is an FFP election so what matters is who wins how many seats. Won't know much for another hour.

2103: 3.5% counted Coalition 52%, Labor 29%, Greens 10%. A whopping 4.3% of the votes are informal. Dumbarse Ockers! In case you didn't know, voting is compulsory.

2110: 5.6% counted. No change. These are first preference votes. So, where no candidate makes 50% or better in a seat, the one with the least votes is eliminated and that candidates second preferences are distributed to the remaining candidate. It might be a long night.

2113: 8.0% counted. Coalition 51%, Labour 30%, Greens 10%. These are the Greens who killed 140 or so people in bush fires last year.

2121: 10% counted. Coalition 51%, Labor 31%, Greens 10%. Hell, I might need to open another bottle of shiraz.

2130: 15.8% counted. Coalition 49%, Labor 33%, Greens 10%. Now it starts to get interesting. I'll have to start watching for confirmed results in in individual electorates.

2136: 20% counted. Coalition 48%, Labor 34%, Greens 10%. According to the ABC the Coalition has won 36 seats and Labor 18. Victory goes to whoever wins 45 seats.

2143: 24% counted. Coalition 47$, Labor 24%, Greens 10%.

2147: 29% counted. Coalition 38%, Labor 25%, Greens 10%. Looks like a toss up between sanity and government by the Greens.

2145: 33.3% counted. Coalition 47%, Labor 35%, Greens 11%. How can a whole 11% of the population be stupid enough to vote for these killers? 140 fire victims and now 29 West Coast miners.

2205: ABC has it 43 seats for the Coalition and 33 seats for Labor. Looking pretty good for the Good Guys. Only two to go.

2008: 41% counted. Coalition 46%, Labor 36%, Greens 11%. Victorians can thank their lucky stars they don't have MMP.

2022: ABC predicting 46 seats for the Coalition and 35 for Labor.

Goffileaks

Why should we worry about a few diplomatic cables released by Wikileaks?

Labour was there way before Wikileaks.

Does anyone remember 'Gone By Lunchtime'?

The Herald's editorialist had it just right when he described this despicable action on the part of Goff and Clark as a 'breach of trust.

Good For The Goose?

Here's what the BAJA has to say about the latest hacking of confidential government cables and e-mails:-

"President Obama supports responsible, accountable, and open government at home and around the world, but this reckless and dangerous action runs counter to that goal," he continued. "By releasing stolen and classified documents, WikiLeaks has put at risk not only the cause of human rights but also the lives and work of these individuals. We condemn in the strongest terms the unauthorized disclosure of classified documents and sensitive national security information."



Funny that.

Adolf struggles to recall any such pious outrage just a few short years ago when the New York Times was doing exactly the same thing, only ten times worse, disclosing classified electronic intelligence information and thereby (a) compromising the ability of the US and its allies to get the jump on Al Qaeda and (b) arguably directly contributing to the death and maiming of countless allied troops in Iraq.

It seems what was good for the gander is not good enough for this goose.

Why Was He There?

It seems some Labor Party people have no idea of civilized behavior.

Why on earth was the State treasurer in a bar at that unseemly hour?

Can you just begin to imagine the field day our piss poor NZ media would have if Bill English was even seen in a bar at 0430 hrs?

Served the silly bugger right. The dosy bastard should have been at home with his family instead of leering up large and getting his lights punched out.



Roll on the next state election when the Liberal Party can finish off the job half done by a few gentle unionists.

THERE IS GROWING ANGER

In the Far North over the antics of elements of Ngati Kahu, centered around the Popata family and actively supported and encouraged by the likes of John Harawiri MP and Professor Margaret Mutu, in occupying privately owned land at Taipa Point which they believe is rightly theirs.

Putting aside the rights and wrongs of the case the reality is that the Waitangi Tribunal cannot adjudicate in respect of privately owned land. It can only be resolved on a willing seller, willing buyer basis and right now those conditions do not exist.

The game plan by Ngati Kahu appears to be to take the law into their own hands and somehow force the issue. No matter that their rag tag occupation desecrates a beautiful landscape; no matter that the tourist industry is now bypassing Taipa Bay Resort just across the road; no matter that they accost both locals and visitors alike and abuse them for not showing 'respect'. This matters not a tinkers cuss to the Popota 'Bros' who you will recall were last year convicted of assaulting the Prime Minister at Waitangi.

Ngati Kahu need to understand that there are consequences likely to result from illegal actions. On 11 December the Northland Electorate of the National Party (the strongest electorate in the Party with a membership that exceeds ACT, Winston First and United Future combined) will, at a special meeting, debate a motion that Government cease discussions with Ngati Kahu over their portion of the Muriwhenua Land Claim which is now in the final stages of resolution. In effect Ngati Kahu will be 'quarantined while they continue to give support to the Popata family and others thumbing their noses at the rule of law.

I will be moving the motion. Already it has attracted considerable support. I expect it to receive unanimous support

Time To Walk, Don

It appears Dr Brash somehow feels comfort in fulminating from Orewa.

He needs to learn a lesson or two from John Key, namely that NZ actually is a centre left country governed by a centre right party in coalition with a right wing party and a racially derived special interest party. (The bouffant buffoon from Ohariu doesn't count.)

Dr Brash appears unhappy with the pace of reform. He wants to knock down the barricades and charge into our socialist fortress with his cutlass swinging whereas Jon Key is prepared to play a longer game, conditioning the occupants for the day when they bring themselves to surrender. Already, Mr Key has achieved a major strategic victory just last week with Labour's dramatic U turn on the sale of state assets. The electoral and fiscal significance of this event has gone largely unnoticed by the country's political commentariat. You'd think Dr Brash himself had not heard of this event.

What has Dr brash achieved? Like an old 78 record he has harped back to the past with a couple of politically unsustainable reports and a bit of red neck populism to achieve what? One day's fleeting newspaper headline and the obligatory reference to the Exclusive Brethren.

Dr Brash reminds Adolf of the Japanese Knights of Bushido, epitomized by General Tojo, given to suicidal full frontal assaults while My Key has more of the strategic genius of Admiral Yamamoto.

Perhaps Dr Brash has not realised that since his original speech at Orewa, the sleepy little town has been bypassed by mainline NZ. We all happily pay a toll to avoid Orewa. Instead he prefers to stay with the traffic lights and winding steep roads of the last century, hoping for a reprise of an almost forgotten past moment of glory.

The best thing Don Brash could do is take his dwindling band of National Party supporters and move them back to the ACT Party, where they belong.

Labour Backs National For 2011

In a sign of uncharacteristic fiscal sanity, Labour's loquacious and self absorbed finance spokesman has guaranteed NACTionalMP's second term in office.

Cunliffe has announced Labour's support for private minority shareholding in State Owned Enterprises.

What a remarkable turnaround this is from the very recent raucous screaming about 'selling off the family silver.' Mind you, why any sane person would want to buy a share in Kiwirail is beyond me.

  • Blenglish will be smiling today as he calculates just how much debt he can retire from 2012 onward as a result of partial asset sales.
  • McCarten will be smiling today as he calculates how many votes he can rip off Labour by demagoguing this issue to his dumb-arse submoronic electoral minions.
  • Filk Off will be smiling bravely as he desperately tries to figure out what it all means.
Cunliffe won't have woken up to the fact that his policy might allow the sale of 100% of Kiwibank to an investor who will call it a minority share in NZ Post.



Is this the brain box who would be leader of the Labour Party?

Funny thing is, it's very difficult to find a picture of this fellow with his mouth shut.

Grope N Change

Adolf can reveal the Democratic Party's election slogan for 2012.

A White House aide who fears persecution if named has let it be known that America's latest you beaut airport security system is all a devious plot inflicted by those evil buggers Rove and Palin with the sole purpose of destroying the BAJA who plays more golf than Jack Nicklaus and wears out more teleprompters than CNN and NBC combined.

Under the new GropenChange administration, Americans will literally be able to feel themselves growing more confident as their reproductive equipment is squished, stroked, poked, squeezed, prodded and patted before they scuttle off to their waiting aircraft.

Adolf can't wait for the day when somebody walks though one of these checkpoints carrying a banner or wearing a tee shirt emblazoned:-


GROPE N CHANGE

It's Started Already!!!

Only five days ago Adolf posted a story on the media's waning love affair with the fat arsed carbon copy of Rudd currently occupying the Lodge in Canberra.

I predicted as follows:-

(You'll know when the media have turned against her when they cease cropping every close or medium range photo to show only her top half.)

So cast your peepers over this bonza bonanza bum on display in Sydney's Daily Telegraph yesterday.



And get the sartorial commentary that goes with it!

She should sack her hairdresser (sorry, Tim) get a decent cut and colour, pack up all her clothes and send them to the Smith Family. There are plenty of stylists who can buy her smart clothes that fit her properly. She needs to hire a good one or get the name of the Governor-General’s dressmaker.

If all this sounds gratuitous, it isn’t. The photograph of Julia Gillard in Sydney’s The Daily Telegraph yesterday, wearing a coat that looked as if it was made out of an army blanket by one of the infantry, said it all.



Priceless!!!!!!!!!!

ON THE REPUBLICANS

Now the dust and tumult has settled down perhaps one can give a more reasoned assessment of what the mid term election result might mean for the GOP. Certainly they 'dished' the Democrats but in doing so it will be interesting to see how the creative tension that exists between the Tea Party movement and the Republican establishment plays out.

Certainly the Tea Party movement was a significant factor in the Republican success but it is fascinating the parallel that can be drawn between them and mainstream Republicans and ACT and National. Tea Party activists and Actoids tend to be ideologues utterly convinced of the logic of their arguments and for whom compromise is almost tantamount to treason. Tea Party activists are suspicious of Republicans much the same way as Actoids are suspicious of Nationalists. I suspect some of them hate mainstream Republicans more than they do the Democrats. Same same here and Redbaiter falls into that camp.

But while the Tea Party movement enjoyed considerable success with major victories in the Senate elections in Kentucky, Florida and elsewhere their inexperience and preference to put their weight behind 'true believers' who later turned out to be electoral liabilities in Delaware (where their candidate was a witch); in Nevada; in Colorado and in Alaska (where the Sara Palin endorsed Joe Miller was beaten by the now Independent Republican Senator whom he beat in the Republican Primary) arguably cost the Republicans control of the Senate.

There has to be some maturing in the Tea Party movement and a working accommodation established between them and mainstream Republicans to avoid their splitting off and going it alone as a third party movement. That doesn't work in a FPP environment and would serve only to entrench the Democrats in government.

Equally too the Republican establishment has to accept that the Tea Party movement reflects the desire of many Americans to roll back unsustainable budget deficits and get out of their lives . Republicans might say that but their track record when they held they levers of power does not inspire confidence. The Tea Party movement can be characterised as the conscience of the Republican Party. Many would argue that a revitalised ACT can fulfill the same role in NZ politics.

One other comment. The election saw the decimation of the so called 'Blue Dog' Democrats (the Democrat conservative wing). Their numbers in Congress were more than halved to just 25. The Democrats are now totally dominated and beholden to their Liberal wing. Obama may make noises about consensus and compromise but the reality is that is all smoke and mirrors. The Democrats will go full steam on the George Sorus agenda.

This presents great opportunity for the 'new' new right in US politics. Get it right and the prize is theirs. Getting it wrong is not an option.

Not Just Coconuts

Some dumb-arses live far from the South Pacific.



This one in particular is a disgrace to his family name. If Adolf remembers rightly, this fellow was a key conspirator in the leaking of sensitive and classified electronic intelligence information to the scurrilous New York Times during the early days of the Iraq war. A traitor, no less.

Now he is calling for the closure of Fox News and MSNBC.

"I'm tired of the right and the left," West Virginia Sen. Jay Rockefeller said Wednesday during a Senate hearing on retransmission consent. "There's a little bug inside of me which wants to get the FCC to say to Fox and to MSNBC, 'Out. Off. End. Goodbye.' "



Why? Apparently he doesn't agree with these channel's respective manner of commentary and reporting. Has someone not informed him about the little button which changes the channel?
But here's the best bit.

Rockefeller didn't seem to realize that the FCC only regulates broadcast airwaves, not cable.


That's what you call a REAL dumb-arse.

Gillard's Gurgler

It hasn't taken long for Gillard's patchwork quilt majority to unravel.

Her majority was dependent on the Greens and three even loopier independents, one of whom appears potentially about to exit parliament.



Nothing is guaranteed to incense Australians more than the notion that some greedy venal prick spread toxic waste on roads which drain into the waters of the nation's oyster farms. Oakeshott will be drummed out because the establishment knows he's now more politically toxic than than a dilly bag of dioxin.

Add to that the fact that Gillard has largely kept all the policies of her predecessor who she white anted in order to gain power. Her obsession with a carbon tax which nobody wants is a classic case in point.



No wonder some are calling her a carbon copy of Rudd with a bigger arse. (You'll know when the media have turned against her when they cease cropping every close or medium range photo to show only her top half.) Opinion polls are trending strongly against her and some commentators even predict she will be rolled shortly by the power brokers of the Victorian ALP.

'Tis a wonderful time to be a conservative. Tony Abbott and the Libs must be congratulating themselves on having maneuvered themselves into the most victorious general election defeat in history.

Dumbarsed Co'oconuts

It seems some dumb-arsed coconuts are not as dumb as some other dumb-arsed coconuts, way down yonder in Mana electorate.

When a series of allegations surfaced about Ms Masoe, the Social Development Ministry commissioned independent forensic accountant Deloitte to investigate. Its findings – in November 2009 – were damning........

......However, Richard Wood, head of Family and Community Services at MSD, said an initial review was carried out by Child, Youth and Family and involved inquiries with Porirua police. Its findings did not "warrant laying a complaint with police".

Better get some heads rolling, Mr Key. Seems like Mr Wood, at least, is ready for the chop.

Throw The Bitch Out

Oh dear oh dear.

One of our leading left wing academic parasites and child mind molesters has had a bit of trouble getting into Australia because she has a criminal record.




Am I alone in the Paul Henryish thought that she looks remarkable like a bloke?

Adolf recommends that she be held in a detention centre for a couple of months. with all the other illegal immigrants, somewhere in the nether regions of Papus New Guinea.

Witless Labour

Cadaverous Pete Hodgkinson (old, shaky and beyond his useful life) droned on in Parliament today with his ponderously meaningless drivel disguised as questions without notice. Remember folks, this is the idiot who (a) focused on Pansy Wong's signing of a document for which she had sought and obtained official approval and (b) was so blinded by his own brilliance that he missed the real issue which was improper use of travel privileges by her and her husband.

At one stage Mallard chimed in to ask the PM if he stood by the remarks of his staff member Mr Kevin Taylor, who had accurately described Hodgkinson as a f***wit.

The PM stood and delivered a dignified response in which he deplored the use of such terms by his staff member on the grounds that it was entirely false to describe the funereal veterinarian as a 'wit' of any description.

Classic stuff.

Singh On Song

Congratulations Harbhajan Singh.




The first bloke ever to achieve back to back centuries batting at number eight.

Not All It Seems

Our old friends at the every day smellier Herald have found a new trick.

Run a fabricated hit piece on a successful conservative politician while concealing the ultra left wing proclivities of the writers.




In days of yore one could pick the by-line after the first paragraph. Sure enough, it was pretty much always the reliably left leaning 'The Independent.' Today is different. Today's ration of puffed up affronted indignation is aimed at non other than Governor Sarah Palin and is simply attributed to two innocent looking individuals, Joanna Walters and Leo Hickman.

The article itself is a poor attempt at discrediting Mrs Palin. The headline and lead in accuse her of breaking local rules by fishing too close to wild bears. Not until you read further do you find that she didn't actually break any rules at all. Someone forgot to tell the commie scribblers from the Guardian that the bears were not feeding.

Joe Meehan, of the wildlife conservation division of the department, said it appeared that the Palins' boat got within 9m of the bears but not while they were actually feeding.

The journo's just made it up.

She can be seen apparently holding her rod towards brown bears on the river bank, while the party's boat appears to be closer to the bears than guidelines advise. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game says people in a boat must not fish within 9m of a bear.

Well, that's not really what they say. Here are some extracts from the actual guidelines found on the Alaska Department of Fish and Game web site. Just guidelines, not rules or laws.

4: Bear Buffer
  • Do not cast towards a bear
  • Do not cast within 30 feet of a bear
  • Cease all fishing when a bear approaches within 30 feet.........

14: Bear Fishing Zones
When bears are present and fishing within 10 meters of Wolverine Creek, all boats within a 10 meter zone must make a reasonable effort to move back a sufficient distance to allow bears to fish unimpeded......

What else would you expect from that marxist stalinist rag 'The Guardian'? But what's the Guardian got to do with it? A quick google search reveals what The Herald didn't want you to know. Walters and Hickman are journalists (or is that journ0lists?) with the Guardian.

What's the betting The Herald's new editor in waiting is a paid up member of the Greens or Labour?

A Bit Quick Off The Mark?

Update: It's not looking good for poor old Filk. This from today's Herald (Italics mine) :-

Biosecurity Minister David Carter said yesterday it was doubtful that New Zealand would be able to completely eradicate the disease, which it is now emerging may have been here for some time and is now threatening to undermine the billion dollar industry.

"Many of the growers are reporting anecdotally that they have seen the symptoms in other years and if we could confirm that, it does suggest that PSA is a disease that has been there for a long period of time.





Adolf smiled today when he heard on Radio Left Wing News that some obscure Labour Party fellow was accusing National of neglecting border protection and letting in some dreaded disease which will ravage, ravage I say, our kiwifruit industry.



Why did I smile?

The first thing that occurred to me was to wonder "How long has this bloody disease been here before it was discovered?

Maybe Filk Off shot his mouth off too soon? Oooooh wouldn't it be soooooo funny if it turns out the terrible bacteria was introduced during Labour's watch when what'sisname was minister for Border Protection or whatever they call it? Sure enough, right on cue comes this piece from The Herald.

Ombler said if the disease has been in New Zealand for many years, but was causing only minimal damage, that would mean it was something "we can live with".

That had been proven during a Psa outbreak in Japan, when that country was able to control the disease, he said.

Still, when you are floundering around at the depths of opinion polls and you are failing dismally to be noticed, perhaps you need to take a bit of a risk to get a hit on the most popular gummint in a hundred years.

Just ask Mike Williams. He knows all about that.

The Sinking Herald

Auckland's daily tabloid carries yet another deadly serious exposition of impending doom for Kiribati resulting from climate change. Another gathering of fools lamenting the destruction of Kiribati from rising sea levels.

Read the piece and weep at the piles of taxpayers' money wasted at talk fest after talk fest in preparation for yet more talk fests.

For more reliable reading, Adolf recommends this careful and measured exposition which clinically exposes the fraud and bullshit associated with the 'climate change' religion.

Will someone please tell the dopes at The Herald that Kiribati is situated close to the convergence of the Pacific and the Indo-Australian tectonic plates?

Sea levels are not rising. The truth is, their pissant little island is sinking. It is being recycled and the sooner the better.

"The joy of the young is to disobey"

Came across this fine example of the kind of thinking characteristic of Labour MPs via Lindsay Mitchell's blog:

Labour MP Lianne Dalziel said ...

"The priority is to increase the price of the dirt-cheap alcohol, the $5.99 bottles of wine, where three young women buy five bottles of wine to pre-load on rather than the two bottles of very good wine that they would be able to buy at the same price."


Unless things have changed dramatically since I was 20, young women on the piss aren't really thinking in terms of 3 of them sharing two bottles of very nice wine. For one thing, if you only drink 2/3 of a bottle of wine, you're not actually on the piss, are you? You're having a quiet, sober night in.

Lianne wouldn't herself be so unseemly and unserious as to get on the piss, so thinks it's the govt's job to see to it that others behave the same way. In this assumption that govt exists to make other people do as she thinks they ought to, she's a poster girl for the Labour Party. I guess that, having finally rejected socialism, the party opted for defining itself in terms of busybodying schoolmarmy-ness. Way to capture the youth vote, guys.

Hopefully it's a hoax, but Akira is a movie you can just imagine these Hollywood limp pricks looking at and thinking they could easily make a live-action version because cheesy CGI effects are cheap now. If so, cancer's too good for them - hopefully something slower and more painful gets them.

They Don't Know How Lucky They Are

The Republicans, that is.



There is much acrimonious debate, such as this, going on in conservative circles about the result in the mid term Senate elections. The argument runs that if Palin and De Mint had not foisted 'ideologically pure' but inexperienced and unelectable candidates upon the GOP, then they would likely now have won control of both houses. Of course, Palin and De Mint argue, with some justification, that there is no certainly the alternative candidates would have won.

What seems to gather less comment, however, is the notion that maybe the GOP is far far better off for the next two years with the dopey doncs retaining control of the senate. Come election time in 2012 when it really counts it might just be a very good thing indeed to be able to blame the Democrat controlled senate for a lack of progress in restraining the excesses of Obama and his leftist cronies. The Republicans will get plenty of runs on the board in the meantime and appear to have got off to a pretty good start with some strong and unequivocal statements from the likely speaker and senate majority leader. Clearly these two people know that while the electorate has slapped down Obama it has not yet invited the GOP to stay for dinner. The challenge in front of the Republicans is to demonstrate by deeds as well as words that they deserve the presidency in 2012. Yet they must do this without allowing Obama and his shifty mates to steal credit for any improvement in the economy during that time.

Republicans will be able to exert huge pressure on threatened Democrat senators to 'come across' on particular issues without giving Obama the wriggle room necessary for him to turn around in 2012 and take all the credit. Had Republicans controlled both houses and the economy continues to stagnate, then it would have been oh so easy in 2012 to persuade a gullible electorate that the GOP was responsible for all the problems.

So Adolf's advice to the moaners in the GOP is pretty simple.

Thank your lucky stars Sarah Palin and the Tea Party got you back into the game. You couldn't have done it without them. Stop moaning and get on with the job of beating back tax increases, reigning in profligate spending and repealing Obamacare.

Water Boarding

Some people need to grow up and deal with reality.

George W Bush recently defended the use of water boarding as a means to gain useful information about the intentions of one's enemy.

Someone, I'm not sure who, said that if he could save one hundred American lives by water boarding one Ayrab terrorist then water boarding would be just fine.

Adolf reckons if he could save one American life by water boarding a hundred Ayrabs then let's water board the whole goddamn one hundred.

A Faafoi Easter

There's a wonderful old Easter hymn 'Were You There.....?'

It's based on a Negro spiritual and the haunting melody was running through my mind the other day, as I was looking at a depiction of the crucifixion by one of the old masters. In fact, the picture was of the trial before Pontius Pilate.



You know, I'd swear I could see Chris Faafoi in the background, advising Pilate on the legal niceties.

Were You There
By: Negro spiritual

Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Oh, sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble.
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?

Were you there when they nailed him to the tree?
Were you there when they nailed him to the tree?
Oh, sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble.
Were you there when they nailed him to the tree?

Were you there when they laid him in the tomb?
Were you there when they laid him in the tomb?
Oh, sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble.
Were you there when they laid him in the tomb?

Were you there when God raised him from the tomb?
Were you there when God raised him from the tomb?
Oh, sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble.
Were you there when God raised him from the tomb?

Where Were You In 2008?

Sarah Palin had significant influence on the outcome of the US mid term elections.



Whether that influence was harmful or beneficial is open to debate with Karl Rove and others claiming that the Tea Party Senate candidate selections backed by Palin prevented the GOP from achieving control of the Senate. (In other words, like some of our own extremist Actoids, they may have been ideologically pure but they were unelectable.)

CBS News has a contra view, exemplified by this quote:-

"My observation of Sarah Palin," says CBS News political analyst Nicolle Wallace, "is that she is one of the shrewdest political figures in our country at this moment. She's also one of the most electric."

All Adolf can say is CBS have got a bloody nerve. What a far cry from the scurrilous pursuit of Sarah Palin in which they and their antique media sculduggerous mates engaged in 2008.

As an aside, I found the most uplifting and enjoyable moment in the Fox coverage to be a joint interview with Sarah Palin and Geraldine Ferraro, the only two women to have run for election as Vice President. Both were scathing of their treatment at the hands of an irresponsible media.

Major faults now discovered under Wellington




A Humblin'

The blackassed jackass just finished his post election press conference in which he promised more hope but not much change for the next two years.



His political astuteness is exemplified by his departure later on a ten day trip to India which is said to be costing the American tax payer a staggering $200,000,000 per DAY. This was summed up by the Fox anchor who opined that his trip was a good thing for America because he costs the country a hell of a lot more each day he is at home.

That just about says all that needs to be said about this idiot who had the gall to say that the election result was NOT a repudiation of his policies.

Adolf's advice to Americans is 'Don't believe a word this serial liar says. He conned you in 2008 and now he's back looking to do you over again.'

Now for the coverage.

Adolf got it half right.

  • Predicted 62 seats gained in the House. Looks like 65.
  • Predicted 9 seats in the Senate. Looks like 8.
  • Predicted defeat for Pelosi, Boxer, Reid and Frank. All won their seats. Haven't studied the margins yet.
Off to a meeting. More later

A fact of life

The authority told the complainant it is a fact of life that we live in a society that eats meat and seafood, and living creatures must be killed in order for this to happen.

For some reason I kind of like this statement.
As a society we need to face up to a few more facts of life.

1. We live in a country that is getting poorer by the day.
The value of our assets - houses, property,businesses and farms - are being driven downwards.
Revaluing will be a word you will hear more and more as the banks tighten up on lending and business confidence staggers.

2. We consume more than we can pay for.

3. Our big government model is too expensive to sustain without borrowing cash and/or crippling the productive people. But to our politician's great relief we will never vote in a government that will change this.

4. We have no real control over the value of our $ and interest rates.

5. We are lucky to be blessed with scenery that movie producers like. If Middle earth could have been found in China the LOR movies would have been made there along with all the 'Designed in .... made in China' stuff we buy at the malls every weekend.

6. Last century was about workers' rights. This century is about workers' survival. Unions need to wake up to this fact while they have some credibility left or otherwise consign themselves to the history books.



How Will It Go?

Here's a little prediction for Wednesday's event and the aftermath.

Pelosi, Boxer, Frank and Reid get the chop.

The Good Guys pick up sixty-two seats in The House.

The Good Guys pick up nine seats in The Senate, just one short of control.

Two days later Senator Joe Leiberman becomes a Republican. CBS and the NYT implode.

The Democratic Party decides Obama is unelectable and in early 2011, Miss Hillary is moved into the VP's job.



In late 2011, the blackassed jackass develops an incurable malignant tumour on the ego and is persuaded to step down from the presidency.



Enjoy the show.
