Trial delays in New Zealand are just like Saddam's delayed trial!


Look at the photo the charmers at Scoop have used to accompany a Simon Power press release.

Can you almost imagine the infantile leftist giggles as they manage to associate Saddam Hussein with a domestic political press release from the National Party about trial delays in New Zealand? It all makes perfect sense to Scoop.

I wonder - what else makes sense to the people at Scoop?

SH.com is back!

There appears to be some problems with the imaging system, but at least we have our own domain name back. Even better - this US-hosted site is noticeably snappier than our previous NZ-based site.

We'll probably figure out the remaining bugs tonight, so please don't post anything.

Instead check out Michael Totten's latest post from Lebanon.

70% of Americans believe Dem criticisms are damaging the Iraq effort

Adolf wanted me to post this one.

A poll run by a Republican and Democrat duo suggests the US public has become very tired of the incessent criticism of the war effort levelled by Democratic Party politicians (and their enablers, the media). Many polled think Democrats are doing it for partisan political reasons.

Expect to see some US lefties attacking the character of the pollsters, while simultaneously using other polls to claim the American public is losing faith in the Iraq effort.

In New Zealand the criticism of the Iraq war comes from "journalists" (activists!), politicians and bloggers who are blatantly anti-American (approaching chronic racism, really) and/or simply spend their time reading leftie blogs and news which are uniformly anti-US Republican Party and negative about Iraq. The fact you come across many dorky young NZers who attack Fox News is representative of this problem: Fox News is only broadcast here for 4-5 hours during the small hours of the morning, yet these young fools give their echo-chamber game away by attacking Fox News shows they could not possibly have seen for themselves.

How many...

Q: How many OpenHost staff does it take to redirect a domain name?
A: More than they currently employ, apparently.

SH.com on the way...

I've arranged for the new host through a complicated trail of 'interesting' names and PayPal accounts... (did you expect anything else?)

Now - how to redirect the domain name?

CNN fires phone rep

The CNN phone call-taker responsible for saying the X Cheney video was a statement of 'free speech', and that 'Bush and Cheney should stop lying' has been fired:
Not much else occurred until around 6:00 PM that evening, when I got a callback from Laurie Goldberg, the Senior Vice President for Public Relations at CNN. We chatted for a few moments, and then she emailed me the official CNN statement on the incident, which confirmed that it had occurred, and that CNN had fired the service rep.

The Economist

Just another quickie post.

Back here, several expressed ridicule that anyone could describe The Economist as centre-left. They further insinuated anyone claiming that must be so far right-wing as to be off the charts (I paraphrase). I should have clarified my position by stating I think The Economist has taken a leftwards-turn over the last couple of years (here is The Economist's advice for US voters during the 2004 presidential elections).

I've been reading it for 15 years or so now, and I would best describe its editorial stance as wishy-washy political opportunism. Aside from some moral and economic issues, they will back whomever they see the political winds favouring.

Wikipedia has further information, including issues and political candidates supported by The Economist editorials over the years.

From The Economist's 'About Us' page:
What, besides free trade and free markets, does The Economist believe in? "It is to the Radicals that The Economist still likes to think of itself as belonging. The extreme centre is the paper's historical position."
So if you think The Economist is right-wing, you are probably so left-wing as to be off the charts.

CNN defaces Cheney video

We're not meant to be posting until the new site is up - but here's a quickie I couldn't resist.

CNN broadcast a video of Cheney giving a speech - and placed a slowly flashing "X" over his head while displaying the headline "CHENEY: I DO NOT BELIEVE IT IS WRONG TO CRITICISE" under the video image. A representative of a PR/marketing firm called Team Hollywood Inc called CNN Headline News and was told the 'X' was a statement of 'free speech' by CNN, and that "Bush and Cheney should stop lying". Audio and more details here.

UPDATE: Here's the screen capture courtesy of Drudge:

Site progress

OK, after a bit of research we've decided on RealWebHost as our new hosting company.

Our present hosting company has finally given us access to our existing site so we can backup our data. Gee, isn't that generous of them? After all, it's only been 3 days since the problems started. Now that's quality service.

I expect we'll have more to say about our experiences (and those of Whaleoil.co.nz) once we've moved our site to RealWebHost.

Couldn't Put it Better if I Tried..........

from No Passaron

Letter of the Month

posted by Erik @ 2:52 PM

…the democrats were either duped by someone all the leftist elite say is a subhuman mouth breathing knuckle dragging dolt, which don't say much for their intellect, or they are craven spineless windsocks out whoring for votes
writes 2BrixShy in a comment that could (and does) apply equally to the members of the international community's so-called "peace camp".
One question I can never seem to get answered sufficiently..... if Chimpy McDumbassOilSuckerBabyCrusher (aka Bush) was clever enough to dupe all the supergeniuses of the left [and all the wise visionaries of the international community] and LIE us into war, why didn't he complete the big Lie and plant some bogus WMDs in Baghdad somewhere? Why go to the trouble of only carrying out half the scam?

Of course, when I get the "because Bush is a big dumbass, that's why" answer, that brings us back to how could such a dumbass trick such deep thinkers, unless of course they aren't as clever as they think they are.....

Boys will Be Boys?

It seems in Australia, boys not only will be boys but they have all the statistics stacked against them if they happen to be looking for girls. When they are not totally pissed or stoned, that is.

A 1997 survey published in the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Public Health found that of the almost 1800 school-leavers questioned, about 52 per cent of boys and 37 per cent of girls were drunk every day (or night), 47 per cent of boys and 34 per cent of girls spent all or part of their partying on drugs, and 44 per cent of boys and 16 per cent of girls had casual sex.

My my caalculation each girl got 2.75 times more bang for her buck that did each of the blokes.

Well spotted, Darren.

BBC Fights to Prevent Victory

I saw the headline and thought "what on earth.......?' The poor old BBC, desperately trying to catch up with The Times' 'real' story of genuine back room poker games between Thatcher and Mitterand, dredges up a story which surfaces and sank a year and a half ago. The real story within the non story is the prosecution of the smart arse leakers. If only the Americans could learn from this and clean out the disgracefully partisan political elements from within the CIA and State Department.

According to The Mirror, the transcript is the document which allegedly turned up in the constituency office of former Labour MP Tony Clarke in May 2004. Mr Clarke - who voted against the Iraq War and lost his Northampton South seat in this May's election - said he returned the document to the government because of fears British troops' lives could be put at risk if it became public. Cabinet Office civil servant David Keogh has been charged under the Official Secrets Act of passing it to Mr Clarke's former researcher Leo O'Connor. Both men are bailed to appear at Bow Street Magistrates Court next week.



Meanwhile, Iraq makes steady and positive progress, in spite of the BBC, Al Jazeera, Democrats, Greens and the cluster of jellybacked Bush haters resident in New Zealand.

Guardian shows their true colours

This cartoon is incredibly nasty, misleading (the WP again! give it up drips), but most of all.... weird.

The horrific imagery is truly worthy of some fascist regime of the 1930's or Stalin's USSR. But then the Guardian is known for its support of Islamofascism.

Retarded media leftie of the day

Chris Matthews:

In a speech to political science students at the University of Toronto yesterday, the host of the CNBC current affairs show Hardball had plenty of harsh words for U.S. President George W. Bush, as well as the political climate that has characterized his country for the past few years.

"The period between 9/11 and Iraq was not a good time for America. There wasn't a robust discussion of what we were doing," Matthews said.

"If we stop trying to figure out the other side, we've given up. The person on the other side is not evil -- they just have a different perspective."

If Matthews hasn't figured out what 'the other side' is like yet, then I doubt he ever will.
I am a TV talking head who thinks everyone walks around thinking like me.

If everyone thinks like me, then clearly whatever would drive me to murder others must also be their motivation. Only the most extreme injustice gone unpunished would drive me to kill or harm another human being. Therefore that is what must be driving 'the other side'.

The possibility that some people might consider me less than human does not enter my mind. The possibility that some people might like to eradicate me and everyone like me does not enter my mind. I cannot understand that some people are so violently opposed to everything I stand for they would lie about their motivations. That they would tell me anything to strengthen their hand while they work to defeat me.

I cannot comprehend the idea of 'evil'.

When a Bush Administration representative uses the word 'evil' to describe our enemies, I feel they are using simplistic emotional words to manipulate my allegiance. After all I don't understand 'evil', and I am a smart man. Therefore only simpletons could believe in 'evil'.

If the Bush Administration is intentionally using the word 'evil' to describe the 'other side' then they are the true enemy for trying to manipulate us. If they believe actually believe in 'evil', then they are simpletons.

Either way, they are more dangerous than a bunch of Arabs killing Iraqis.

I will use my TV program to defeat them.

Slight Technical Problem

Our existing host turned out to be a bit of a dud. On the assumption their technical performance and quality of service to date is representative of future service, we're moving to a new host.

First we need to extract our data from the existing host, then we need to transfer the domain name, then we need to configure the new site (again!).

This may take a couple of days to sort out.
