Blonde gunned down by wolf guarding the sheep

Justine Damond

After reporting an assault she’d heard, Australian woman Justine Damond was gunned down by a Minnesota cop.  How did it happen? 

When the police car arrived, she ran up to it in her pyjamas and spoke to the driver.  Officer Noor, with his firearm already drawn, reached across his partner from the passenger’s side to shoot her through the driver’s window, multiple times in cold blood.

Why did it happen?

We were perplexed!  How could it happen?  Why would an American police officer, whose oath is to “serve and protect,” do that?

The NZ media didn’t tell us.  The next day I read that the Minnesota police officer was Somali born Mohamed Noor.  He’d got into the police as a celebrated “diversity hire.”

Now I understand.  It was a hate crime.  It was murder.  By a man who should never have been put in a position of trust.  He came from a violent culture.  His religion is Islam, and he would have seen this pajama clad blonde as  a “wicked infidel.”  In his culture, women are expected to wear the hijab and be confined to their homes.  Were his murderous actions influenced by Sharia law?

The Somali community in Minnesota regularly call for Sharia law.
Minnesota Muslims brutally honest: ‘We want Sharia’

I only hope this is explained to the people of Minnesota, Australia, and Justine’s uncomprehending family.

The wolf is indeed guarding the sheep.

My final question is, how would have this have been reported if it had been a white American policeman shooting a Somali woman?


Donald Trump said the Somali migrants were a disaster for Minnesota.  I’d have to agree.  These people have no regard for American culture or law.

A New Ager, Justine believed you create your own reality.  She believed in a “benevolent force that will bring you anything you want but you are the sole creator of your reality.”

The fatal flaw with her thinking is she didn’t take into account evil, and although we can shape reality, we can’t create it.  We’re not God.

We certainly create our own paradigms, which are cultural and religious. Diversity and multiculturism don’t work because we don’t all think the same.

Justine Damond’s reality was that law enforcement was safe, there to protect and serve – and if she’d been dealing with American culture, that would have been true.  But she wasn’t.  Mohamed Noor’s cultural reality was probably that he “had a calling” to enforce Sharia law, which deprives women of their rights.  I say that from his actions, and there have been complaints about him before he shot this woman.

There’s a Bible proverb, Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts.”  Proverbs 4:23

Withdrawing from Paris Agreement helps the poor

Whatever we feel about Trump, I heartily agree with him keeping his election promise in pulling the US out of that Paris Climate rort, and wish my country would do the same.  Why?  This rotten deal is nothing but U.N. wealth redistribution. 

NZ is a small nation of 4 million people, yet we are going to spend 1.4 billion dollars  per year on this rort  Enron type agreement.  It’s money we don’t have!  I know because last year the government talked about borrowing a billion to build badly needed housing.

People in NZ ask, to who our wealth would be going?  It seems the United Nations Green Climate Fund.  Who is in that?

Do you think the third world governments, dictators and crony capitalists like Al Gore really give a stuff about the environment?

One of the projects was a dam in Nepal, where they want to generate electricity for export to energy-hungry India.  Nepal and China-based Zhejiang Hydropower Construction and Installation Co will get the money, and India will get the power – at the cost of the environment and other nations.

Ironically, green groups are against the dams.  Well, they shouldn’t have supported the climate hysteria which is enabling this wealth heist.
Green groups condemn UN plan to use $136m from climate fund for large dams
Here’s why we should demand that our governments get out of this deal,

  1. The Paris agreement raises energy prices
  2. Regulations promulgated under the aegis of the Paris Agreement increase prices and harm the economy.
  3. The Paris Agreement redistributes wealth from taxpayers to international corporations and less developed nations.

This blog article puts the case very concisely.

Crashing from a great height

People keep crashing drones into Seattle’s Space Needle. the 605-foot tower and Seattle landmark built in 1962 by the Pentagram Corporation.  The Seattle tower also features in a nineties TV series “Dark Angel,” a TV show about Max, a genetically enhanced warrior.

“It looks like the drone tractor beam we installed on the Space Needle is working,” Space Needle CEO Ron Sevart jokingly told CNN in a statement. “This is the third time we’ve recovered a drone on our property.”

Jokes about tractor beams aside, perhaps people don’t know how to fly the things.  And people don’t always know how to fly computers either.

Microsoft is the dominant software manufacturer for desktop and laptop PCs.

The Seattle Space Needle is on the Windows 8 lock screen, an operating system that I avoid.

win-8-splash-screen

Microsoft’s tractor beam is “their software on every computer.”

microsoft
And how well do people know how to fly their computer?  
For instance, if you have Windows 10, have you locked down your Privacy?  Did you know that everything said, clicked on and typed is being recorded?  From the start button on Windows 10, click “Settings” and then click “Privacy.”  Turn everything off.  The technocrats rely on our naivety.  I am forever locking down the privacy settings for my customers.
Windows 10 violates your privacy by default, here’s how you can protect yourself

I run an IT services company with my husband. Customers often say to me they don’t know much about computers and sometimes they are afraid they’ve caused the problem.  No, they are using a  computer system that has the propensity to crash, hang-up, quit working or display an error screen.  That’s what happens when you’ve got a monopoly producing a product.

You do have a choice about what you have on your computer.

ubuntu-linux-logoIt’s the Linux operating system.  I’ve been using it since 2001.  My advice is to find an IT services company that offer the service, and try Linux out.  Some software programs may not work with Linux, so get them to take an image of your Windows Operating System first in case you need to revert back to Windows.  There are various types of Linux.  We use Fedora Linux in our house and business.  Ubuntu is a good Linux operating system to start with.  The software is free, the only costs are associated with installation and learning.

 Ubuntu is a Nguni Bantu term roughly translating to “human kindness”.

As for Bill Gates, the co-founder and former chairman of Microsoft, when he was a boy he won a dinner at the Space Needle restaurant offered by his pastor.  Eleven-year-old Gates had to memorize chapters 5, 6, and 7 of the Gospel of Matthew, better known as the Sermon on the Mount, and he recited the sermon flawlessly.

I wonder what young Bill Gates was thinking as he ate dinner and watched Seattle revolve around him.  Did he feel on top of the world?

The chapters he had to commit to memory contained a lot of wisdom.  Here are some of the words he recited,

No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” Matthew 6:24.

But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand.  The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”  Matthew 7:26.

Did he remember and follow the great words his Pastor wanted him to learn – or did he choose world domination?matthew-16-26

What Egypt thought of Obama

Here’s a bit of (black) humour. It’s Obama prattling on about “climate change being their biggest national security threat.”  Seriously?  The weather?  It’s just as well he’s going.  I hope the US can bounce back from him.

Here’s what the media in Egypt thought.  It’s refreshing after the sanitised, air-brushed version of president Obama that we’re presented with in the news.

Here are some of the comments:

“Is he insane?”

“He’s on drugs?”

“What do you expect from an affirmative action president?  He never served in the military, nor worked a day in his life.”

“Did you see that video of him working out?  My daughter has bigger biceps than him!”

“America is getting weaker by the day under this president.”

“Look what he did in Libya.  It’s all part of his plan.

“Your enemies no longer fear you. And your allies no longer trust you!”

The sellout of NZ

Thanks to greed, poor planning and economic mis-management, we can kiss goodbye to dreams of home ownership and a quarter acre section for the kids to run around on.  We now have people living in cars – unheard of before the economic reforms of the 1990’s.

New Zealand now has the highest housing prices in the world, next to Qatar!

How did we get here? These are a number of causes; (1) Supply and demand, (2) Land restrictions under UN inspired initiatives like Agenda 21 and now C40, (3) Foreign banks creating NZ’s money, and (4) Economic mismanagement.

(1 and 2) The demand for land out-stripping supply. The Auckland City Council has been restricting the amount of land that can be built on. Our media haven’t reported on this – but in December the Auckland City Council signed up to the C40 Low Carbon City Group, a group of councils across the world that regard carbon as a pollutant.  Carbon is not a pollutant – but we won’t go into that here.  I’ve already addressed that in Carbon Con, another blog post.

The C40 dream is for “compact cities” where car use is restricted. Our councils were already restricting land for building on under Agenda21, but it will really ramp up now Auckland is one of the C40 cities. The plan is for high density housing where people walk, bike, or use public transport. How can that be good for families? Gone will be our own private backyards where children and pets can play in the summer, and log fires in the winter. Gone will be our cars and garages. Gone will be land ownership and privacy. Surveillance will be increased and energy use will be monitored by things like “smart meters”, another thing that has been imposed on us.

big_4_money(3) Foreign Bank lending causing housing inflation.  The other reason for inflated housing prices is bank lending. NZ’s banking sector is dominated by big Australian Banks – called “the big four.” New Zealand banks were sold to them in the 1990’s.  The big four are the ANZ, NAB, Westpac and Commonwealth Bank. These foreign-owned banks hold 90% of New Zealand’s mortgages.

They make money electronically out of thin air and then loan it to New Zealanders at interest. Our money system is still based on the printing of bank notes, and nothing has been done to stop them from creating electronic money in this fashion. The overseas banks do have to have reserves, but its not covered by depositors funds – it’s covered by the inflated price of the land from the bubble they’ve created.

The big banks make huge profits which are taken out of NZ. They win, property owners and speculators win, and our children and people on the lowest rung of the economic ladder lose.

I’ve just heard on the news that half of the house buyers in Auckland are speculators. There are no laws to stop speculation in the NZ property market. The speculators don’t even have to be NZ citizens. It’s morally wrong.

(4) Economic mis-management.  Finally, we don’t have enough builders. The National Party decided that ‘the free market’ would deliver all the industry training New Zealand needed,” effectively wiping out the old apprenticeship system in the 1990s. Wage subsidies for apprentices on block courses were abolished in 1991, leading to the huge trades skills-crisis facing New Zealand today.  Source: http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/PO0507/S00250.htm

What can we do? Here are my ideas.  Stop unelected overseas entities from stealing our wealth.

Put pressure on our local and national government to demand the councils get out of the C40 “low carbon cities” initiative. Our rate payers are not being looked after in this group, and rates have gone up and will continue to go up. Technocrats in the UN, carbon exchanges and overseas investors are the only winners here.

Ask for a change to the money system. Ask why we aren’t creating the money electronically and giving it to Housing NZ?

Join Positive Money NZ – they’re part of an international movement for money reform.  http://www.positivemoney.org.nz/

Demand that we reinstate building apprenticeships.

Stop speculators buying our homes. Make it so they can invest in forestry or commercial property – but make it illegal to speculate on our homes.

Demand our local and national governments use some common sense – something that has flown out the window with the neo-liberal reforms of our economy in the early 1990’s. Blind fools in our government have let “the market’ dictate business and economic activity here, without any rules around the banks or the investors – resulting in this mess. They’ve enriched themselves at the expense of our country and our children.

Don’t borrow from the big four Australian Banks.  Go to the Cooperative Bank, Kiwibank or the Taranaki Savings Bank – they are all NZ owned.

There’s also Liberty Trust, who provide Interest Free Lending from pooled money.

I’d love to hear what you think.

More hypocrisy

bruce-springsteen-Header_tvywthI heard on the news this month (April 2016) that Bruce Springsteen canceled a concert in Greensboro, North Carolina, because that state enacted a law to keep girls safe in restrooms.

North Carolina GOP Executive Director Dallas Woodhouse released the following statement about the cancellation:

“This is bizarre. The Greensboro Coliseum has men’s restrooms, women’s restrooms and presumably family restrooms. The policy passed by the General Assembly, rolled back the radical change in bathroom policy, by the Charlotte City Council and maintained the status quo. For years young girls have safely used the restrooms at ACC Tournament games and other events at the Greensboro Coliseum separated from grown men. The legislature and Governor simply secured the long standing common policy of safety and security and privacy.”

Source: http://myfox8.com/2016/04/08/bruce-springsteen-cancels-greensboro-concert-on-sunday-because-of-house-bill-2/

The newly enacted law (which would seem logical to most of us) requires individuals to use bathrooms that correspond to the gender on their birth certificate.  It drew the ire of the gay and transgender people who believe their legal protections should trump those of the majority.

Agreeing with them, Springsteen canceled his concert to show his solidarity “in the fight against prejudice and bigotry.”

Nothing happened to him even though Greensboro Coliseum officials have estimated a loss of $100,000 in net revenue.

In a free country, he should have the right to withhold his services if they violate his deeply held beliefs.

Bake the cakeAs should the Kleins, the Christian bakers who in July 2015 were sued and gagged for refusing to make a same-sex wedding cake.  They were ordered to pay $135,000 in “emotional damages” to the couple they denied service – and ordered to “cease and desist” from speaking publicly about not wanting to bake cakes for same-sex weddings based on their Christian beliefs.

gay-rights

Here’s a clip of what happens when Moslem bakers are asked to bake a gay wedding cake in Deerborn, Michigan.  Is the gay lobby going to persecute prosecute them?  Just asking.

Good fences make good neighbours

Nice wall Pope

Pope Francis called Donald Trump’s plan to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border “un-Christian.”  That’s rich, coming from him.  The Vatican is a walled city state!

The current situation in beleaguered Europe shows us why nations need borders.  German Cabinet Official Gerd Muller said only 10% of the migrants have arrived from the Middle East and Africa.  Eight to ten million migrants are still on the way.”  He slammed the European Union for failing to control the crisis, saying the border-free Schengen zone has “collapsed.”

Schengen

“Lose security? Lose employment? SCHENGEN NO”

The Schengen Agreement was signed by ten European nations in 1985, removing Europe’s borders.  At the same time, multiculturalism was being imposed through immigration.  Do “ism’s” ever work?

Along with multiculturalism came political correctness.  No-one’s allowed to report on the multicultural elephant in the room.  Or the Islamic camel’s nose in the tent.

Of the million strong migrants that arrived in 2015, how many of them are genuine refugees?

RefugeesWhat is going to be done to protect the culture and the European people?  Boundaries are there for a reason – whether national or personal.

Boundaries are good, and they’re God ordained.  It is written “From one man God made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. Acts 17:26

In the next verse we read so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us.” Acts 17:27

Even atheist China saw the link between Christianity and Western freedoms.  But it seems Muslims covet the gifts, but not the giver.  Are they going to seek the Lord, or will they demand their own way and seek to impose Islam on their host societies?

It’s obvious that not all religions are the same.  The Bible makes some interesting statements about religion and the land.  In Leviticus 18 God warns that if the land is defiled; he will punish it for its sin, and the land will vomit out its inhabitants.  In Psalm 68:6 we read that “the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.”

Lets looks at the countries that Islam covers from above.

islamic-land

What does that tell you?  The only green spot in it besides the Nile delta is tiny Israel.  It’s the only nation that’s democratic and not Islamic.  If it’s because of a lack of rainfall, then Israel should be just as arid. 

Here are some borders from around the world.  The difference between Haiti and the Dominican republic is another remarkable picture.  Haiti practices voodoo.
