In which I amuse myself at a government ministers expense.


Now funnily enough I happen to live in the town where this has just happened.

This may be the furthest south any group has landed, to put it in perspective, if it was the east coast they would have been landing just south of Brisbane.

So I thought id take the opportunity to have a poke at an Australian Senator, the man who described dismantling the old system (which saw refugee boat arrivals at single digits) as his “moment of “greatest satisfaction”.

 

 

Good day, this may come across as a little gloating but Im just mailing to inform you I told you so.

Some years ago now you called for submissions into the detention/refugee system, I put in a submission based on 5 years of working in the detention field and seeing its failings and traps.
You were the minister responsible at the time, I initially hoped your inquiry might be a genuine one. Silly i know.

My submission was rejected on the grounds my “information was out of date” and similar tosh.
I responded and received a borderline rude dismissal.

So here comes my gloat, nearly EVERY thing you did which has hurt your government with regards to immigration could have been easily avoided if you had been less of a fool and actually taken submissions from people who had seen the previous fuck ups and successes.

Your own ideological stupidity and arrogance made a rod for your own parties back. Your “greatest satisfaction” has become just one of your governments signature failures. If you have any ounce of intellectual curiosity I could still give you a workable solution to you asylum impasse gathered from years of talking with refugees themselves. But hey, you know better don’t you mate?

I currently live in Geraldton, as you may be aware we had a boatload turn up in the harbor here today.
Now I know you’ve moved on, your obvious stuff up notwithstanding, but just think of me as the slave who stood at Caesars ear whispering, “Respice te, hominem te memento” or “Look behind you, remember you are only a man”, some of us remember your past, even if you like to forget.
Yours, with ALL due respect.

And i really mean all the respect due to him, probably slightly outweighed by a gnats pubic hair.

 

 

So which one?


Which Republican presidential nominee?

Having just spent an hour or so watching the New Hampshire GOP Republican debate, having gleaned various tidbits over the internet since a while back, I can honestly say I don’t know.

Yet.

In comments at that link, Ron Paul’s supporters come across as a tad too fervent, as does Paul himself. He just comes across as a bit whiney. Quick to complain about a problem but a bit wishy washy with any solutions.

Romney arguably won, but he comes off as Obama-lite+religion. He’s big government but I will say he’s tending to own his opponents. He does look presidential and has the establishment’s backing… not necessarily a good thing when up against Obama who REALLY has the Establishment’s backing and REALLY (at least) talks presidential (except here where he sounds about as formidable as Julia Gillard).

Where’s Big Counterjihad When You Need It?


Over at Gov and Vlad Tepes a call has gone out for assistance. The remarkable Fjordman is in somewhat straightened circumstances, so a few of us are helping put the word out for him. He hasn’t had a blog of his own for years, although that has not stopped his productivity. What did slow him down, however, was the Norwegian gunman Breivik naming him (among others) as being a bit of an inspiration*. I personally think that Breivik’s ‘manifesto’ is a load of tripe. Breivik talks of christianity, say’s he’s not one, and yet gets wheeled out as being a fundamentalist christian. As someone who is into Extreme Popery, I call bullshite. In the meantime, and along with everything else, Fjordman has now pretty much lost everything – job, home, country. I’ve got a cat he could have, but that’s no use when there’s nowhere to keep it. He does have a few (for him) words over at Vlad’swhich I’ll paste here:

Hello from Peder Jensen alias Fjordman. I will continue writing under one name or the other and hope to publish several books in the next year and a half, but after the Breivik case in Norway, which I got mixed up in against my will, I no longer have a job and I am also moving out of my old flat in Oslo, which I already left weeks ago. There are always some costs involved in moving to a different location and creating a new life somewhere else. If you have enjoyed some of my essays in the past I would be grateful if you donated a few bucks this time. Think of it as a Fjordman Relocation Fund. Just mark the donations as being for me and I will get it via Vlad’s fine website. Thank you, and thank you for all the support and kind words I get from long-time readers. Peder

This is not quite a twilight bark – more a twilight blog. *very interesting review of Breivik’s ‘manifesto’ by someone of the left-persuasion. I’m not sure she’s read the Reliance, or the hadiths or the Hedaya, but that’s only to be expected. A few weeks with HuT might help her with a few things. Like the fact that muslims believe that sharia law is Allah’s Law for all men for all time, so whether she agrees with it or not is irrelevant. That’s not conspiracy theory, neither is it conspiracy that a man has been hounded out of his home for writing some hard-hitting essays that focus on the Decline and Fall of Western Civilisation. We’re just not supposed to mention the islamists because we’re not allowed to hurt feelings. Please check out the post over at VladTepes, and if you can donate money to assist Fjordman, please do. If you can’t, then linklove and prayers are most welcome also.

Our Langolier government


Most of you probably remember the book and/or movie, The Langoliers. Those little creatures would gobble up, or destroy if you will, everything – matter, space, time – they came across.

In a sense, the Gillard (and previously, Rudd) government has many similarities. Everything her Langolier eyes set themselves upon, they destroy.

The list is unbelievable.

The dogs that dont bark.


During the reign of the eeeevil HoWARd regime a asylum seeker vessel the SIEV X (suspected illegal entry vessel 10) foundered in international/Indonesian waters with great loss of life.

Refugee advocates and Labour pollies were in arms about it for years, school “learning projects”, etc. Culminating in a shocking book accusing the Australian government of deliberately sinking the vessel (which won awards from state governments), and the territory government of Canberra erecting their own memorial (covered by legislation in the territory parliament) on the shores of lake Burley Griffin.

Acres of print and hours of angst all aimed at demonizing the Howard government. Id hate to accuse those involved of politically motivated moral grandstanding… much.

Heres the results for the search SIEV X memorial 

Fast forward to a few months back and the wrecking of  SIEV 221 on the coast of Christmas island with subsequent loss of life. I thought Id have a google for a memorial…

Nothing.. lots on the disaster, nothing on a memorial (unless its well hidden)

Is it too much to ask lefties to be a little less selective in their moral outrage?

Oh dear me Sarah..


Poor misguided soul Sarah Hanson-Young has ventured another opinion piece for the SMH.

Photo pinched from Col. Neville

Its just as vapid and fisk worthy as her first one, and as much as Ive tried to resist the temptation I have to go through this one as well.

Im an ASIO spy, codename: “the Yank”


Well at least according to serial tosspot, pisshead and labour mate Bob Ellis over at the ABC unleashed website.

Ellis wrote one of his signature ” dribble from the plonk bottle” articles regarding the loss of life on the asylum seekers boats, starting with a stream of urine conciousness  series of oh so sad questions.

I answered them as I saw fit in comments which has brough a hilarious response from the old fraud.

More under the fold…
