Peter Thiel thinks Trump is under threat. Wheelers Corner 35 18th July 2019


To read a little more about how this super rich ex German / US / and now Kiwi citizen. 

How he  gained Citizenship in a weird fashion, check out the reference below...I'm sure you will find it most interesting...They say money talks and this simply proves that statement to be correct.




Peter Thiel. Is or was:

A German born, / US citizen / NZ citizen [after only 12 days visiting NZ over a five year period]

So much for his love of the United States and wee Donald Trump...

I suppose he is also super pro-Jewish and super-Republican and once was just the most-est in Trumps baby mind.

Born: 11 October 1967 (age 51 years), Frankfurt, Germany
Net worth: 2.5 billion USD (2019)

He [Thiel] has just published how he thinks Elizabeth Warren is the bigest threat to Donald Trumps re election. Please go to reference below to read more:

Donald Trump as we all know justs loves telling falsehoods, for example he states that he is not racist... is NOT racist, he always repeats his lies... in fact according to him he doesn’t have a racist bone in his body!!!! yeah right... 

He [Trump] is such an honest wee chap, he won't even share his tax returns...anyway to read a little about his racism etc. Go to : 

https://www.thedailybeast.com/trump-says-many-people-are-racist-like-him-and-hes-right

now have a quick look at:

https://www.stuff.co.nz/world/americas/114300290/donald-trump-officially-condemned-by-us-politicians-for-racist-tweets 

With leaders like Trump its no wonder that people have lost faith in political leaders...seriously folks Trump has pubicly stated that Republicians are the dumbest voters:

I've published this picture before and its simply amazing how people get in touch stating this is all false news...well it its not...it was published by Peoples Magazine in 1998.

The other fact that Trump never talks about is that he was once a paid up member of the Democratic party...

And he has a thing about women of colour holding elected positions in the US.

He tells them to go back home, but three of the women were born in the US...and you have to be a citizen to beable to stand for election.

Thank God Trump is not a Kiwi or he would be telling Maori to go back home to Hawaii or to some such place...the man is a racist
 fool at best... 

Of course we here in NZ have our share of those who refuse to accept the damage we are doing to our world both environmentally and socially. Farmers in particular are being protected from the consequences of their failure to control their farm waste that is polutting our rivers and streams. 

Some one suggested the other day that most farmers simply want to earn enough to pay the bills etc. I accept that, just as workers want to do the same. 

The big difference between the two groups, is that workers get laid off, when things go wrong, and need to go on to the dole...whereas farmers seem to be happy to accept being given government hand outs...while continuing putting yet more cows on their farms knowing only too well that is a root cause of our polluted rivers etc. And Horizons goes out of itsway to ignore their behaviour. 

Farmers like owners of the big gas tanks are just one bunch of polluters that appear to getaway with murder when it comes to anti-climate individual change management.

When will we ever learn, that we can not remain as greedy as we are if we are to counter the worst effects of that greed on our environment upon which life depends...

The government is trying to bring a balance between gas guzzlers and EV's but its a real pity that every time suggestions are made about balancing farm earnings with meaningful farm practice change, the government backs off...its almost as if Roger Douglas is still with us, and John Key is not the head of the NZ Branch of the ANZ,  The cartoon below says it all about government courage in regard to finance and farming changes...



I've just added this discussion between two cockies and a petrol station owner, it makes interesting reading: https://thedailyblog.co.nz/2019/07/18/filling-up/

Cricket a game for the Gods...can we win the world cup.





Wheeler's Corner 34 13th July 2019



I was laid up for a few days with the flu which kept me bed bound for a few days...but I managed to stay awake to watch the Black Caps beat India...and what a game it was...spread over two nights, for a nutty cricket lover it was sheer joy to watch.


And now that the sand-paper kids [The Australian cricket team] have been chopped up and spat out by the England team, its to be New Zealand Vs. England at Lords on Sunday 14th of July starting at nine pm. 

And if you haven’t got sky, you can watch it live on Prime for free...



Naturally I’m supporting Captain Kate Williamson and all the team, I’m especially happy that we are playing England rather than Australia, so no worry about under-arm bowling, or sandpaper playing havoc illegally with the ball...but we should remain alert...



India was and still is a very good cricket team, who have normally produced the goods when required. And I’ve no doubr that their fans were really disapointed by their loss to NZ’s Black Caps.



That’s the joy of cricket for it can be unpredictable at times and at times players go long periods as they seek form with bat or ball, but Martin Guptill is a wonderful and effective fielder...and his run out of MS Dhoni in the semi-final was amazing and brilliant in all respects...its this kind of reaction to difficult situations that makes the Black Caps so dangerous in one-off games...lets hope that this skill continues against England. Any way I’ll be up watching the game on Sunday and keeping my fingers crossed. I’m not bold enough to predict a result, that is simply too difficult for types like me. Naturally I hope we will win, but if we don’t lets praise the winner, so long as they don’t attempt to cheat.

I think and hope that this Sundays game will be well worth a look, and remember its free to air on Prime...



I just loved the way the USA Woman’s World Cup winning Soccer team took the stupid PR message from dear sweet Donald Tump, 

who up until they become the World Champions yet again, then decided to invite them to the White House, 

but he fails to support equal pay for men and women in the US soccer world... 

I doubt they'd accept the PR offer to visit the White House, after all what normal human being wants to have their pussy attacked by the famous white house oaf.

https://www.democracynow.org/2019/7/8/seg_1 

Read the above; to get a clear picture of what women in the US have to put up with the male first attitudinal behaviour that exists these days...and Trump uses it to corrupt society, of course he fails to concede that his attitude is both dated and really really old fashioned. 

And that most adult people are laughing at him with his weird behaviour....just as are the young people...and after all we must never forget that Trump believes that Republican voters are the dumbest voters ever...and will always believe his lies...so long as they are published by FOX NEWS....

This week is a short version of my wheeler's corner...but the effects of the flu is slowly departing the scene...thank heaven. And I should become more active... but I'd like you to meet Renee Dingwell, 

Who is running for council...take a bit of paper write her name on it RENEE DINGWALL and attach it to your fridge door, and put her name as number one on your voting papers when they arrive. If you want to converse with Renee simply go to:


Renee Dingwall [Green Party] City Council candidate with Brent Barrett, both have been together visiting various sites around the city talking to people. 

She is really dynamic and full of vigor and energy, just what our city needs in this day and age.

No only that, she actually believes in what she says... 

 https://www.stuff.co.nz/manawatu-standard/news/113628408/greens-endorse-two-candidates-for-palmerston-north-city-council.

A Trump free trader! War or a holiday...you decide.

Wheelers Corner 33 5th July 2019...A new world vision of hope from the US.



Could this woman, Marianne Williamson [pictured] be the next president of the USA...could she team up with Bernie Sanders...what a wonderful team that could be...


Liz Remmerswaal Hughes sent me this link...it was absolutely perfect. For it fitted my present frame of mind:

While Trump was / is busy pushing his tin tanks and tin soldiers, while his dream making plans to destroy North Korea using atomic bombs and drones [killing millions] if they don't obey his idiotic dictatorial dreams. Designing his war plans with Iran...and continuing his war dreams in Afghanistan, Iraq and Yemen, and anyone else who disagrees with his mentally retarded vision of the future.

A certain Marianne Williamson is putting her name forward to be the next POTUSA, Oh dear me, she is the direct opposite to Donald Trump, firstly she is a woman, and not a pussy grabber...secondly she can read and write, thirdly she is in favour of peace, fourthly she doesn't tell massive lies...and lastly she is human...and not just a TV image.

Please take the time to read the item that Liz sent...it worth every minute of your time. Marianne Williamson refers to our own Prime Minister during the discussion...

The Climate and Children are Trump targets, and we are supporting him. Wheelers Corner 32 29th June 2019


Kirsty Porter mounts the dooms day clock set for two minutes to midnight...hence the urgency for behaviour change over saving OUR one and only planet. See item two about the Climate Crisis Office...but before you do read the following to see how nutty a climate change denier can be, he is the worlds most ignoramus person...and his finger is on the red button...
 
`Go to:
https://www.democracynow.org/2019/6/27/abolish_migrant_child_jails_now

And after reading the item, you may like join up to Democracynow.org I can assure you that its well worth the effort. Because you may want to get the US news, without the spin of FOX News, which is often picked up by our main stream media...and is rarely fact checked before publication...Trump has told thousands of bare faced lies...Trump made some interesting comments about Fox News:
So meek is our dear Donald Trump...


The present US Government depends almost solely on FOX NEWS to spread its message of absolute hate for all things Mexican. [Trump as a business man made great use of cheap Mexican labour...] He is almost Hitler like in his crazy rants and texts against the Mexican population as a whole...it to be honest is bloody frightening...and only in a country run by the largest rich bigot possible where they  are forced to put up with such...child like and stupid behaviour...

Someone suggested to me the other day that Trump is extremely sly and cunning, and that makes him somehow intelligent!

When I suggested that no, it simply proves that he is sly and cunning...kids can be sly and cunning...as can anyone. But that doesn't make them supper intelligent...I've been informed that Trump can barely read...

New Zealanders have to re-find or rediscover the national courage to stand up to the bullies of this world: We've need to stand against the killers and murderous group of nations that the US has befriended like, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Russia, etc. Dictatorships are becoming all too common in this day and age:

We not only have to stand up and be counted, we also need to put into action our sense of justice and fair play for those of our fellow human beings who are being ripped off by the weapons manufacturers that make millions if not billions, by supporting wars as a means of controlling other nations.

Oh dear me, only in American could the home based controller of a drone which then murders innocent woman and children, while its operator who is simply sitting behind a desk in the US and not in any danger, then gets a medal for bravery. Issued by a president who couldn't even don his countries uniform during the Vietnam self inflected war...so brave is our courageous President Donald [hideaway] Trump.

For heavens sake, are these leaches on society not rich enough now... we should cancel our military purchasing plans until we have worked out what it is that we truly desire...do we want to be simply American clones...and act like drones for them as they arrest children, can you imagine jailing a four year old...as you will have just read the US is doing this on a daily basis.

Big tough American thugs who have the absolute freedom to act like NAZI guards and force children to sleep on concrete floors, have no means to wash them selves...and so on. I wonder if they allow them toilet paper to wipe their tiny bums...

2.
Andy wore a tie..

A couple of 15 min parking spaces were occupied by Extinction Rebellion Manawatu supporters as a part of their on-going Friday morning activities. I spent from 10am to 12.15 assisting them...and it was very interesting and rewarding.
I met with various people who really did not accept than  humans have played a huge part in the damaging our environment. It was funny because a couple of them suggested that the early Ice age period proved their point...according to them man survived that event...so we will do so again... but its a strange argument, because the question remains, were humans even around at the time of the early ice age?

The biblical born again followers who suggest that man is only a few thousand years old...who suggest to themselves at least that man wasn't around at the time...hence they appear to accept the creation theory of the bible without question.

One person I talked to was of the view that he believed that the answer lay within every individual, as if some how these individuals could have stopped the industrial revolution...naturally we must accept at some point collective responsibility...he suggested that all our problems revolved around money...and I agreed with that...but when I suggested that we could control creed by regulation and good law making. [IE: Tax etc.] he said "Not a chance" we are simply too greedy...sorry I mean I am simply too greedy.  





PNCC Manager attempts to persuade protesters to move. 



 The protest over our three local councils lack of REAL actions in regard to climate change will I've no doubt continue until The Regional Council and the Manawatu district council actually make some meaningful progress, at least some realistic moves toward removing their carbon footprints. And would it be nice to see the Regional enforce the environmental rules to clean up Lake Horowhenua and the streams around Fielding so that eels may return...the least they could do is to do what now many councils have done and declare an emergency, the three councils might consider seriously appointing a staff member to overseer the task of coordinating  climate change plans. The latest council to move down this track is Dunedin which has joined Auckland, Wellington... surely intelligent people exist outside of our main centers.

I am not a crook...repeats John Key...as ANZ bank sacks its CEO. Wheelers Corner 31 21st June 2019


John Key always had a problem with transparency...matching his behavour with his secret intentions was always difficult. 

Hence his nickname "The Smiling Assassin" was an perfect match between personality and reality. He always was a perfect example of a cross between an innocent babe in arms and a financial crook...he could, it would seem, be both at the same time.

This latest [2019] example of the ANZ banking stuff up with the dumping of its CEO, with I might add a two million dollar hand-out simply proves the point...yet again of the two faced behaviour of Key in his dealings with those he once considered his deep and trusted friends. People like: "Richard Worth, Phil Heatley, Kate Wilkinson, Chris Tremain and even Judith Collins were exited or demoted in fairly unceremonious fashion after various controversies or perceived poor performance threatened to distract or hurt National's grip on power" so said Bernard Hickey in the following piece  [Bernard Hickey worked for 18 years for Reuters, the FT Group and Fairfax as a financial journalist and editor and is now the managing editor of Newsroom Pro. 
Have a read and learn more about the damaging effect that Key had on his past so-called friends, the damaging effect was massive for those involved. 

https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/on-the-inside/392358/bernard-hickey-the-smiling-assassin-returns-for-his-biggest-hit 

I've no doubt that key will sweet talk his way out of accepting any blame for the CEO sacking...just as he did over the pulling of young women's pony tails, which was written off by the Main Stream Media...as a joke...when in fact it was a clear and on-going representation of John Keys possible hidden sexual desires ...even the NZ Herald couldn't bull-s*** its way out of the cover-up it tried to inspire by the mis-behaviour of one of its reporters.

Former BNZ chairman Kerry McDonald said the problem is that the expenses matter wasn't identified by the Zealand board, but in Australia. "So what was the New Zealand board doing to manage and monitor expenses?" Check out the following; and see if you agree with Kerry McDonald.


Mr McDonald has previously called for Sir John and other ANZ leaders to resign after the bank was censured for failing to properly calculate its risk.
"If the ANZ board is not capable of having systems and processes in place that identify problems of this nature - chief executive spending or the way risk is managed - then you've got to have serious doubts about their ability to run a bank."


2. Ombudsman announces 'wide ranging' investigation into Oranga Tamariki
For years and years Australians and New Zealanders had the nasty habit of stealing babies off the native populations and handing them over to settlers: 

They almost all ended up as domestic servants or labour units. 

Of course the behaviour was normally dressed up as helping the natives adapt to the European version of slave-labour without calling them slaves [since slavery had been made illegal] but in real terms had rarely been enforced. 

Old habits and behaviours remain years after they had been declared illegal...the US was and still is a clear example of how 'blacks' are treated in society, by local, state and national police. But this is NZ and we are more human than the average American. 

Or are we? Are we simply better at hiding our disgusting behaviour these days. Think about it: NZ is against political dictatorship, but we support murderous dictators like, The Israeli government, and various other thugs who run various countries. 

We never speak-out [these days] against the stupidities uttered daily by Donald Trump and his cronies who are at this moment attempting to declare was on Iran using the same old lies they used in attacking Iraq...remember they attacked Vietnam because of a so-called attack on a US ship...which we found out later never took place. Could anyone in their right mind consider Trump to be sane and well reasoning? any way have a read of the Ombudsman's comments on the Oranga Tamariki latest efforts in justifying their strange behaviour...

https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/te-manu-korihi/392412/ombudsman-announces-wide-ranging-investigation-into-oranga-tamariki
This is American heroism these days...

3. Shock news flash!

United Nations officials are "assessing the United States' plans to carry out a tactical assault on Iran," the Jerusalem Post reported Monday, citing anonymous diplomatic sources at the U.N. headquarters in New York.
"According to the officials, since Friday, the White House has been holding incessant discussions involving senior military commanders, Pentagon representatives, and advisers to President Donald Trump," the Post reported. "The military action under consideration would be an aerial bombardment of an Iranian facility linked to its nuclear program."
https://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/06/18/if-true-they-are-even-bigger-lunatics-we-realized-un-officials-reportedly-believe?

And the most likely outcome is more of the same:

Its not simply the nutty American Generals who just love "Killing Arabs" in an effort to make America great again"...

but the thousands of American men and women who pay the price for US stupidity with its never ending wars...Name a war America has ended in the last forty years...not won, but ended...they are still at war with North Korea, with Cuba, 

And when their thousands of damaged troops return home they are poorly treated, medically ignored and are forced to live on the streets...its especially hard if they are Black or brown.  

More US troops commit suicide than in any other army...




And remember that Donald Trump avoided doing his bit for his country... by pretending a medical problem [a bone that came and went]...and thereby staying safe while others died to maintain his daddies wealth...Oh so brave was / is our Donald Trump POTUS.

Muhammad Ali was extremely brave when he publicly stood firm against being drafted to go to Vetnam to fight for the Donald Trump's who used their money to remove themselves from harms way...and we must never forget the US lost that war...after killing millions


The famous boxer had more guts than had Donald Trump and it was proven, simply by his courage to stand up for what he believed. He was willing to take the consequiences of his behaviour. Trump never had the courage to do that...

Trump never did that, he hid from his required and legal duty, using his Dads own Doctor to ensure that he avoided his duty. It could be said that:

Muhammad Ali was ten times the man Donald Trump was  Still in the eyes of some he is a billionaire so that makes him OK,  money can buy anything these days it would seem. Even a rewrite of history... Trump has gone from hating the military to loving the military.

4. Last Item: 


Margaret [centre] made a presentation to the Manawatu District Council on the issue of climate change. She was supported by Beth [left] and Philip [Right].


I was a little late getting there because of really bad sun strike on the trip from PN to feilding. 


Margaret spoke with great care and was very precise in what she had to say.  The Mayor of MDC Helen Worboys thanked Margaret for her presentation. 

I must admit that since the Council meeting had no sound system it was really hard to hear what was said by both the Mayor and Councillors taking part. Margaret Mathieson, Philip and Beth are all active members of Extinction Rebellion Manawatu. If you would like to join, go to Extinction Manawatu face book page and see what you can do to assist in promoting activity around the subject of Climate Change...

Darroch Ball and Ron Mark and Winston Peters just love playing with tin soldiers. Wheelers Corner 30 13 June 2019


Question: Is NZ First getting donations from Israel? Answer: Who knows...
Opinion:
Since the Israeli's believed they could buy / steal NZ passports, why should they not believe that they shouldn't buy a New Zealand political party...I mean hell they spend billions in the US to keep trump on track. 


Is Darroch Ball A Palmerston North NZ First List MP...yet another blinkered fan of of the Israeli dictator and mass murderer of thousands of Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank?

Winston Peters and his Defence Minister Ron Mark are great fans of the Israeli leader who clearly loves killing innocent civillians protesting in their own country by instructing his military clowns [clones] to kill by sniper fire as they pick off unarmed protesters from behind the Israeli built barb wire fences erected to protect Israeli's as they steal more and more land while destroying homes and schools and hospitals...from the population who have lived there for thousands of years...I'm sure that Alfred Ngaro a one time Pastor and now National Party list MP will. Since he follows every word Jesus uttered,  I'm sure that Jesus must be most upset by the mass murder of the Palestinian people by the very people whom WE rescued from the NAZI mass murderers of the 1940's. Wasn't it Jesus who said from the cross, "Forgive them for they know not what the do", but the real question now days is "Should we forgive the Zionist and their attempted destruction of the Palestinian peoples? It would seem that Ron Mark, Winston and Alfred are happy with the state of affairs as they presendly stand...shocking really don't you think...so much for respecting human life as Jesus saw it....NZ First is happy to buy weapons  from these mass murderers...well I'm not! and I really hope you are not too...


Darroch Ball thinks is OK to allow the agressive passpost thieving Israeli's to come to Palmerston and sell their weapons and buy cluster bombs trigger systems...but mind you his attitude is understandable as his New Zealand First best mate is Ron Mark [look at my medals!] famous for his wana-be a so called SAS [Eme] workshop manager...who can't even get his medals in the correct order:

Ex EME Officer MOD Ron Mark

https://www.stuff.co.nz/manawatu-standard/opinion/113342999/city-council-caves-to-protesters-with-new-venues-policy

Now have a read about NZ Firsts attitude to the murderous behaviour of The Israeli PM: Benjamin Netanyahu just a short while ago Mark and an unknown National lover of Israel were filmed as they kissed Netauvahu's arse in a cringing display of humility by NZ toward a well recognised world class killer and a very - very - very good mate of Donald [pussy grabber] Trump... I must admit as an ex soldier I was astounded by the behaviour of wee Ron Mark...

Creepy Winston Peter's words to  John Minto of the Palestine Solidarity Network were most revealing and two faced...here is an abstract from John Minto's brush with two faced film-flam operator Deputy Prime Minister Winston P:

"Your final statement that the government is “committed to building a closer relationship with Israel and with the Palestinians” is surprising because the facts of New Zealand engagement in the Middle East tell a very different story. Your government has a strong, growing relationship with the state of Israel but no practical, meaningful relationship with the victims of its apartheid policies.
 
Your government has welcomed an Israeli embassy in Wellington; sent a New Zealand cabinet minister to meet the Israeli Prime Minister this year; supports a visa free scheme for young Israelis to travel to New Zealand; supports a film co-production agreement with Israel; supports an aviation agreement with Israel; supports increasing trade with Israel and shortly you intend to extend this by signing up to an innovation agreement with Israel.

"You are rewarding Israeli’s most appalling behaviour – illegal under international law and in defiance of UN resolutions – with greater contact and enhanced international credibility. In effect New Zealand is helping shield Israel’s most egregious behaviour.
 
Alongside this you have a pretend policy of engagement with Palestinians.  
Just in the last week your government’s reported intention to purchase military equipment from Israel sums up the reality of your policy priorities much better than the “diplomatic speak” in your letter which tries to imply an even-handed approach.
 
These issues are too important for New Zealand to leave here. We repeat our request for you to meet with a delegation from the Palestine Solidarity Network as soon as possible to discuss a positive way forward for New Zealand in relation to the Middle East.
We look forward to a positive and timely response.
Na,
 
John Minto for the Palestine Solidarity Network"

PS: In my view, John Minto has more courage in his left foot than Winston has in his entire body... 

If you would like to read Winston Peters reply check out the following reference:

https://kiaoragaza.wordpress.com/2019/06/07/psn-calls-for-investigation-into-nz-govt-policy-on-palestine-israel/ 

https://kiaoragaza.wordpress.com/2019/06/12/how-could-the-government-have-let-this-happen/

https://thedailyblog.co.nz/2019/06/12/investigation-decision-this-week-palestine-solidarity-network/ 

The phrase “open secret” is an oxymoron, a label for information that can’t be explicitly acknowledged but is deferred to nonetheless—which, paradoxically, requires familiarity with what’s supposed to remain unknown. It’s a conspiracy of obfuscation and avoidance, an edifice of silent accommodation erected to protect someone from himself. It’s harm reduction on behalf of the fragile and the powerful. "reference Spinoff"

And this is the problem with New Zealand First's love affair with Benjamin Netanyahu and his murderous mob of terrorists and of course it is corrupting the Labour party, in the same old way that NZ First has corrupted anybody it gets into bed with...as history proves.

It's not hard to understand why NZ First struggles to attract women to it ranks...well young women at least have better things to do with their political energy.

So Auckland City Council has now clearly agreed that climate change is both real and is an emergency and that when compared with Horizons and Palmerston North Councils represents real progress...at least the Auckland City Council recognises that climate maters are important...The two Bruce Boys at Horizons Council are both unsure what the word climate means! 

NZ First agrees that it needs to spend billions of dollars on defence so it can fight a climate war some time in the future...or use new navy ships to move people from Pacific Islands to NZ, but not Australia as their Islands are covered by the rising sea...the Australians plan is to send them all to prison camps in PNG etc. 

Yes it is a strange world we live in, one in which many of our elderly white male leaders have yet to accept that they are actually destroying our environment by their utter stupidity of spending millions of billions on their defense forces via their arms industry complex [that NZ First wants to expand]; rather than spending that money on designing the scientific and practical means of combating the ever growing destruction that man has expanded by never ending wars...that kill millions and wreck our earth. 

Seriously folks with leaders like Trump and the bunch of dictators that surround him I doubt we will reach 2030 in one piece...still in the words of Trump....this is making America Great again...prey tell me when has America ever been great...was it when they took years to join the 1st World War, or the three years it took them to assist the Russians defeat the Germans in the 2nd World War...or was it in Vietnam, where they lost, or Iraq, or Afghanistan, both illegal wars, even wee Cuba gave them a thumping.

And this is the model that NZ First loves to follow... no readers I believe that we have out grown the comic book Donald Trump, and the murderous Benjamin Netanyahu, so come on NZ First move into the twenty-first century. Re think your old fashioned militaristic views and join the real world...go back to school and get a brain...

we still consider you human...we will assist you in your much needed education. We know that behaviour change is not easy...but we will help you overcome the hurdles you face. Why because we care about ALL human beings regardless of race or colour or even religion.

Oh and one last word for wee Ron Mark: EME was never the SAS, nor was a short spell on the Israeli border...UN observers were never a part of the SAS...So show us your para wings...or admit to reality...

More evidence that women lead the way for change. Wheelers Courner 29 7th June 2019

 Rachael stone, Hannah Prisk, Paige Linneweever: photo WARWICK SMITH/STUFF

https://www.stuff.co.nz/manawatu-standard/news/113170668/high-school-students-take-on-climate-change
1. Yet again women continue to lead the charge: High school students, from left, Rachael Stone, Hannah Prisk and Paige Linneweever, talked at the Palmerston North City Library on Wednesday 5th June 2019 about the state of the environment.

While public advertising of their talk was was almost non-existent; in the public media, it is was not unexpected that the numbers attending to be small...and that was the case. And this was strange because the talk had been sponsored by the Manawatu Standard and the city library.

The three bright and intelligent high school students, Rachael, Hannah and Paige were joined by a brilliant young singing sensation...Do you know her name: [please send me a massage as I failed to write it down when I took the photo...thanks you in advance.]

Between them all it was an event well worthy of a much larger crowd...because the message they were offering was absolutely vital and of massive importance to the human race.

From my perspective [old white male] the fact that these three young woman were brave enough to stand up in public and speak out on the leading issue of the day simply says it all. 

And while I thank the Manawatu Standard and the Library a bit more advertising is needed if you want to draw a worthy crowd.

When you compare their progressive mode of thinking to that of for example the Chairperson of the Horizons District Council: Bruce Gordon and his bunch of non progressive ward councillors and their shutting down of creating community communications links. Lets hope that at this upcoming election we get a few more progressive Councillors such as Rachael Kedwell on board...


Smug Bruce Gordon...lives in an era of the stupid...
This very smug white male seems happy to ignore what he and his cohorts have done to our world, and I might add are still doing... It would seem unbelievable that in this day and age...that someone would want to go backward and ignore the advances and progress that communications have made to our ability to share in collective community decision making .

Rachael, Hannah and Paige must cringe when they read of just how backward our local government leaders have become in regard to new concepts and ideas for better and more meaningful interactions between the so-called leadership and the electors. I get the very real impression that poor old Bruce Gordon does not believe in climate change.

I stand, as I hope you do too, on the side of the younger generation with their progressive thinking rather than the efforts of smug types like Bruce Gordon and Donald Trump...who can't seem to understand the difference between truth and bull dust...wearing a tie doesn't make one intelligent...out dated ideas remain out dated ideas no matter how you dress them up...

2

It was good to see a growing number of Councils here in NZ and around the world are buying into the concept of declaring a climate emergency for their regions...one can only hope that Palmerston North and Horizons will muster the internal fortitude to do the same...The success of the XR [extinction rebellion] movement has swept the UK and Europe and the US.

And the treatment dished out to the worlds greatest political and public liar Donald Trump by the people of the UK was absolutely amazing... Yet Donald Trump tells us it is all false news...the people of the UK really love him.... the pictures we see on our television or on our social media platforms is all just, false news. It is really ironic that the US sends its President an anti military draft dodger [some would say a coward] to praise American non draft dodges who took part in D day...its so typical of the Hollywood bull-Shit that still prevails throughout the US collective mentality in their rewriting of history... we should never forget that the US took three years to enter the 2nd World War...

Trump says this picture is false news...yeah right.

Protesting both the individual cruelty of U.S. President Donald Trump and the globally ascendant "politics of hate" he represents, tens of thousands took to the streets in London and across the U.K. Tuesday as Trump enjoys "royal treatment" from the British government on his first official state visit.
"This protest is about Trumpism—the hatred and poverty that is spreading. Our movement is about joining the dots between hate, bigotry, and inequality."

Trump claimed in a tweet Monday that he had not "seen any protests yet," but the demonstrations on Tuesday will be impossible to miss, with the 20-foot-tall Trump baby blimp flying over London and crowds of Britons pouring into the streets throughout the country.
"We are here to take on misogyny, racism, fascism, and hatred," Guardian columnist Owen Jones declared during a speech in London.
Jones emphasized this point in a column ahead of Tuesday's mass demonstrations, noting that the protests "aren't just about Trump, they're about everything he stands for."
"These protests won't simply be about Trump and the perverse reality TV show he's treated the world to," Jones wrote. "The protests will be about Trumpism: about confronting a resurgent global far right, defending the rights of women and minorities, fighting the climate emergency, opposing the threat of war, and standing against an attempt to gut the NHS and trash hard-won rights and freedoms.

These two according to Trump are best mates!!! Johnston thinks Trump is an idiot, they deserve each other...

Two Neo Lib nut cases...
