Sweden’s Political Correctness Insanity

It seems that Julian Assange is not the only victim of Swedish Government Political Correctness. When will people understand that just because something is bad (racism) doing the opposite is not necessarily good (Not allowing an opinion on cultural or religious practices of others.) Let’s just blame white males instead. For everything.

Joko (Jokowi) Widodo

 

Joko widodo peace sign nixonesque

Just to the North of Australia lies a series of islands known as Indonesia, known to Australians as a place of booze and drug filled ‘spring break’ style getaways, and one of the worst places to get on the wrong side of the law.

Having Just had it’s election for president, only the second time a democratic election for the office was announced, for the very first time a non-elite candidate was run and apparently won with 53% of the vote.

A political new comer to the national political scene Joko Widodo (Jokowi) cut his teeth as Governor of Jakarta and previously as Mayor of Solo.

Some commentators as saying he is too close to the much more experienced and politically connected former President  Megawati Sukanoputri, and may be unduly influenced by her and her circle.

His presidential  election opponent Probowo Subianto ( a more typical Indonesian military strong man president archetype)  has called for a recount in a largely symbolic (and slightly sour grapes) move, though the result is unlikely to change.

Joko Widodo made his fortune in the furniture export business, and had flagged infrastructure and heath as major areas for improvement for Indonesia’s 240 Million People.

 

Significance?

240 Million people on your doorstep have a new political direction.

48 million of them didn’t eat enough today either.

Australia: No longer a carbon tax nation

Today was one of the coldest days in recorded history for several Melbourne suburbs, hrmm where is all this global warming?

The Gore Effect has struck again. Al Baby recently visited Canberra accompanied by his usual blizzard to try to convince the tiny band of eccentrics that held the balance of power in the Senate to vote to keep the “carbon” tax that has been pointlessly crippling the Australian economy.

He failed. The Senate upheld the vote in the House to bring the doomed CO2 tax to a timely end. The Australian Labor Party, which had unwisely introduced the hated tax for the sake of clinging on to office for a few more months with the support of the now-decimated Greens, is belatedly trying to whip up support from a skeptical nation for a repeal of the repeal.

Bob Carter, whose measured, eloquent and authoritative lectures all over Australia putting the minuscule global warming of the 20th century into the calming perspective of geological time…

California Halts Injection of Fracking Waste, Warning it May Be Contaminating Aquifers

California Halts Injection of Fracking Waste, Warning it May Be Contaminating Aquifers

‘California officials have ordered an emergency shut-down of 11 oil and gas waste injection sites and a review more than 100 others in the state’s drought-wracked Central Valley out of fear that companies may have been pumping fracking fluids and other toxic waste into drinking water aquifers there.

The state’s Division of Oil and Gas and Geothermal Resources on July 7 issued cease and desist orders to seven energy companies warning that they may be injecting their waste into aquifers that could be a source of drinking water, and stating that their waste disposal “poses danger to life, health, property, and natural resources.” The orders were first reported by the Bakersfield Californian, and the state has confirmed with ProPublica that its investigation is expanding to look at additional wells.’

Australian Carbon Tax gone

After significant argy-bargy in the senate the Australian carbon tax and associated legislation has been repealed.

Why?

Because there is no global warming anyway.

http://occupymelbourne.net/?s=global+warming

 

Significant in the legislation is the amendments by Clive Palmer’s PUP enforcing saving be passed on to consumers of electricity and gas.

Jonathan Moylan: Nothing to be guilty of

 

Jonathan Moylan had his own Mega Mosque moment when he created a parody email system called ANZcorporate and sent out fake press releases claiming a col mining project had lost  it line of credit from ANZ, of course the share price when tumbling because all this is fake  money and can disappear in  an instant. Then the banksters got angry that  people were figuring out their dirty tricks, his ‘roumortrage’  (rumor and arbitrage) had done real damage, but he unlike banksters had refused to take monetary advantage from it all.

Court case ensues, found guilty but unlikely to face jail because these kinds of finance crimes always have precedent and are usually accompanied by light sentences.

Amazing the kind of damage you can do with a few dollars, a clever idea and stone cold bluff.

Because absolutely nothing can be a real cool hand.

What the Left Does Not Understand About Islam | FrontPage Magazine

 

Complex and thoughtful article on the historical failures of the left, explaining why the left believes that Islam is just another victim of western  warmongering and capitalism, rather than the Fascist ideology it really is. Surprise : The left also did not understand the true evil of  Hitler’s  National Socialism and therefore was completely ineffective in combating it.

 

The left is blinded by it’s own ideology and therefore cannot see the forest for the trees. It cannot  see what the real problems are and therefore cannot solve them.  Of course they cannot come from the neo-liberal right either , who believe that everything will be all right as long as they only look out for themselves and their cronies at the expense of the population.. The ineffectiveness of both sides ultimately gives birth to ugly hateful  Neo-nazi type movements..One can only hope that some people with half a brain have learned the lessons of history , but I’m not betting on it.

Palmer United Party cages the beast

The garden variety lefties don’t want to admit it, but the biggest threat to Tony Abbott and his insane posse of neoconservatives is the wealthy mining magnate Clive Palmer.

Having clearly shown that political office can be effectively bought by throwing sufficient money at carefully chosen electoral and senatorial seats, he has now chosen to do something unexpected, caring about anybody else apparently. It’s fair to say Palmer is doing something slightly more honest that the typical billionaire, in that he is in office himself rather than buying a hollow man (politician). But in this sense you really see the agenda for what it is, rather then filtered and massaged through through a puppet. Hearing Palmer say ‘bullshit’ on a TV interview is refreshing and demonstrates that with enough money you can really say what you like.

So what did Palmer get for his investment?

One house of representatives seat. Palmer admits he often doesn’t attend parliament unless there is a division, declaring his one vote is often useless.

Three Senate seats, this is significant political capital in a very divided senate. This voting block give PUP  effectively a kingmaker position. Palmer has used this to strike down the carbon tax repeal until electric price reductions have been added to protect the pocket of the lowly voter.

Can you hear it? The roars of ‘man of the people’?

Nope, the political left typically are deadly silent when a  ‘rich bastard capitalist’ does something good for everybody. That’s the typical dishonest and blinkered thinking you can expect from the left.

So now Abbott and his mad ideology have been put in the cage by someone a bit more real.  Perhaps Palmer now has another dinosaur to add to his theme park, an Abbottosarus, extinct since people starting calling bullshit.

there might be a Christmas this year now that Palmer has caged the beast of Abbottosaurus
