‘Palin: The Donald Goes Rogue… Trump Stumps Media Kingmakers… ‘pundits, politicos determined to destroy candidate they can’t control’…
“..Itty-bitty pundits thinking it’s clever to mock Americans’ opinions are finding the joke is on them. Cozy in their seat of judgment, blowing each other’s horns, protected by a glass screen. Ask yourself: just who ARE these windbags? And what do they build? Towers of paperclips? Lists of Twitter followers? Trump’s supporters are delightedly defying pithy prim “opinion makers” who think Americans are incapable of choosing our leaders without their dictates. The more the spotlight-seekers smear Trump, the more popular he gets. A friend emailed, “Tell those smart alecks bashing Trump on TV, ‘I love him because YOU hate him!’”
‘Iran city swelters at 67.8 degrees’
errr…no. Whoever wrote that front page headline in Stuff news NZ is an idiot or a warmy cultist. It was actually 43c and very humid.
‘European ‘alliance of national liberation fronts’ emerges to avenge Greek defeat
It has come to this. The first finance minister of a eurozone country to draw up contingency plans for a possible euro exit is under investigation for treason.
…So we now have a Europe where the political temperature is rising to boiling point: where the EMU elites are refusing to shift course; and where mischievous lawyers are concocting criminal charges against anybody daring to explore a way out of the trap.
This is a recipe for a European civil war.’
‘Four grenade attacks this week have rocked Malmo, the third largest city in Sweden, prompting police to sound an alarm over the increasing violence. Multiple explosions, shootings and arson struck the city, which has a large migrant population…’ Andrew Bolt
‘How mannequins are destroying women
From the the depths of an eating disorder, even the most harmless image, comment or interaction could trigger waves of self loathing and insecurity, writes Emma Gleason…’
Any woman who is “destroyed” by the mere sight of a shop dummy would be a precious, stupid, immature little flower indeed, so if widdle Emma is correct and there are such idiotic women perhaps it’s just Darwin in action. For which we should be grateful.
And isn’t it odd how the sight of improbably handsome, muscular action heroes in movies and advertising doesn’t prompt a similar hysterical self-destructive impulse in men?
‘$4k missing from charter school funds
Staff who withdrew $4000 in cash from a school’s account and failed to explain what they spent it on will not be investigated, the Ministry of Education says.
A financial audit of Te Pumanawa o te Wairua, a struggling Northland charter school, found staff made the cash withdrawals from ATM machines and a BP station from January last year.
Education minister Hekia Parata last week decided to leave the school open until at least the end of the year, despite the Ministry of Education’s reservations and its multiple contract breaches, as she believed it would be best for the 39 children currently attending.’
This is just the latest in a long history of such
theft misappropriation by taxpayer-funded maori organisations.
Trump’s lawyer is a Pitbull and he doesn’t like reporters trying to smear his boss-
The glorious thing here-
““I will make sure that you and I meet one day while we’re in the courthouse. And I will take you for every penny you still don’t have. And I will come after your Daily Beast and everybody else that you possibly know,” Cohen said. “So I’m warning you, tread very f****ing lightly, because what I’m going to do to you is going to be f***ing disgusting. You understand me?”
‘German politician’s car blown up in immigration attack
A German local politician’s car has been severely damaged in an apparent bombing. No one was injured in the attack on the empty car, which was parked overnight at the time.
But it is believed it could be the latest in a series of increasingly violent protests against asylum-seekers….’
Which makes this Iron Legion post even more interesting:
‘…The boomer conservatives inherited thriving, European nations but turned them into a Brazilian prison riot. When the youth complain about it their elders hubristically tell them not to be racist and to just deal with the mess they made. The young European man of today does not recoil in horror at being called a racist by people who will become irrelevant within a generation. The youth will deal with it, but not in a way that conservatives will like…’
