The profile of an arsonist

Well, well, well. Some school kids in Queensland have been busted for arson. While the “blame everything on climate change” brigade keeps making links to global warming and bushfires, the truth is that global area consumed by bushfire in the last 18 years has fallen 24%.

The Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC) notes that 85% of fires are either accidentally, suspiciously or deliberately lit. The US Department of the Interior data shows 90%. So it is consistent with Aussie pyromania.

The AIC notes, “most arsonists are white male, mid-20s, patchy employment record, often above average intelligence, but poor academic achievement and poor social development skills…56% of convicted structural arsonists and 37% of bushfire arsonists in NSW had a prior conviction for a previous offence.

The AIC might need to lower the age bracket to include brainwashed school kids spoon fed propaganda by activist teachers.

If the left really wanted to add to the list of climate change causality they could add white privilege to the growing excuses, sorry proof:

Pets

Cannibalism

Toxic Masculinity

Gender

Angela Merkel’s shakes

CM’s bus was late today. Maybe climate change is to blame. Or maybe Russian interference…both!?

Pete Buttigieg compares the challenge of climate change to defeating Nazis

Democratic presidential candidate nobody, Pete Buttigieg, has made the claim that the fight against climate change poses a bigger threat than the struggle against the Nazis in WW2.

Hmmm. So Nazis with StG-44s, MG-42s, 88s Panzers, Tigers, Heinkels, Messerschmitts, V1s, V2s, pocket battleships and U-Boats were less of a threat than fighting for climate change where this mysterious control knob of C02 (a trace gas) will somehow cause wide scale death and destruction.

The only equivalencies that could be drawn between Nazis and climate alarmists are that of twisted propaganda and blind devotion to demagoguery rather than hard facts. Before the left loses its mind, CM isn’t equating climate alarmists to Nazis. They’re more like rusted on communists given their desperation to shut down dissenting views.

By the way, CM was blocked from Extinction Rebellion’s FB page after supplying data sources to a question asked by one of their followers. After pointing out that a junior school level of mathematics was more useful than a degree in climate science (based on simple fractions of the data produced by their own side) with the hard data, CM was banned.

The telegram above is actually from CM’s grandfather who sent this telegram to his beloved wife to say that he was still alive despite repeated efforts by the Nazis to end it. His telegram said virtually nothing. Then again, everything.

Lt. Norman Peterson stared death in the face everyday for almost 6 years. Pete Buttigieg has probably done little more than exchange glances with Anderson Cooper at a CNN Town Hall.

We keep getting told that 100s of millions of climate refugees will result from rising sea levels. We keep waiting. Climate change is a gift that keeps giving. No matter what garbage is espoused, junior high school maths proves time and time again that humans just can’t move the dial in any meaningful way. If only the Nazis were such easy beats…Norman Peterson, and most veterans like him, would have gladly accepted climate change everyday of the week.

Zero points

Coles has joined the list of corporates which believe their customers actually give a damn what Alan Jones said two weeks ago. CM is rather dismayed at the absolute lack of creativity put into woke press releases. Do they just Google a standard DIY template? What do they hope to achieve other than inadvertently out themselves as easily bullied?

Coles said,

Coles values diversity, respect and actively promotes the rights of all of our team members and our customers.”

Did Coles get a flood of actual customers complaining to store managers as opposed to caving in to the faceless left wing activist groups like Sleeping Giants or Mad Fucking Witches? Maybe customers ONLY care about a wide variety of quality produce at decent prices. Just a thought. CM, like most shoppers, have never ventured into a Coles store praying that diversity is being observed.

These are the unimaginative press releases on Alan Jones from other companies,

Anytime Fitness,

The comments made last week by Alan Jones regarding Jacinda Ardern do not represent our view or values,

ME Bank,

We removed all our advertising this morning after the situation as we take this very seriously and these types of comments don’t reflect our values

Snooze,

We take the comment made by Alan Jones on the 15th of August about Jacinda Ardern very seriously. These comments do not reflect the values of Snooze

Bing Lee

The comments made earlier this week on the 2GB breakfast show do not reflect our values...

Koala Mattress,

Koala has cut ties with Alan Jones. We’re a significant buyer in the medium, and it’s something we should have done earlier. Climate change is real, violence against women starts with words and the bloke has had too many chances. @2GB873 time to wake up.

Was “wake up” an unintended oxymoron for the bedding company? Of course Koala is only too happy to endorse the likes of Clementine Ford whose slander makes Jones look like a choir boy.

CM is sure that when recession really starts to bite and revenue dollars are actually even harder to come by than now, these zero value add marketing departments will realize their moral code has absolutely no positive impact on business.

It isn’t just Alan Jones. Israel Folau lit up similar stupidity.

Rugby Australia wrote,

As a sport that is proud of the values of inclusion, passion, integrity, discipline, respect and teamwork that underpin our game globally and our Code of Conduct, we will defend those values and the right for all people to feel safe and welcome in our game regardless of their gender, race, background, religion or sexuality.

ANZ Bank

We do not support the views of Silver Fern Maria Folau and have made our views known to her employer Netball NZ.”

ASICS

We believe sport is for everyone and we champion inclusivity and diversity…While Israel Folau is entitled to his personal views, some of those expressed in recent social media posts are not aligned with those of ASICS.”

These corporates need to understand that no one cares what values these corporates have. They can decide for themselves without being lectured to like school kids on detention.

Bega Council declares climate emergency

Well, well,well. Yet another virtue signaling council with too much time on its hands. It seems 39 residents came to thank the Bega Council for its climate emergency declaration. So given there are 33,253 residents as at the latest census count, 0.12% showed up to make this display. Bravo. Why hasn’t Bega Council given explicit impact figures on the savings expected? None because to do so would render the whole cause as ridiculous as those elected to make the decision.

CM hopes that Bega Council looks immediately to shut down Bega Dairy to fulfill the commitment to cut down on the dangerous methane gas from dairy cows. Afterall every little counts, even in Bega.

By the way, by the UNIPCC’s own data animals make up 13% of the methane which is 722 parts per billion meaning animals alone make up 0.00000939% of the atmosphere.

Jazz hands to Bega.

The Woke will end up being the Joke – as usual

Do the marketing departments of these corporations honestly believe they will gain anything via this ill-considered moral preening? Do they have any real cohesive cognitive plan outside of vacuous virtue signalling to appeal to an existing or potential client base that has already moved on?

What is the bet had Alan Jones told PM Scott Morrison to shove a sock down President Trump’s throat that they would have said absolutely ZIP. Maybe they’d up the spend? The double standard is guaranteed. What it really says is that the marketing teams are pandering to their bigger client – trying to appear relevant to their own management team. Such gutless and spineless actions speak volumes of the utter uselessness of marketing teams in general.

Before dozens of woke corporations pulled their adverts from the top-ranked radio jockey, did they ponder for one second that their clientele who listen to him probably haven’t collapsed into an inconsolable heap? What is more, they couldn’t care less what Anytime Fitness, Chemist Warehouse or Big W think.

It doesn’t take much imagination to work out the utter brain dead groupthink in these marketing meeting rooms (echo chambers) of corporate Australia as they seek to self-censor to justify their glaringly redundant roles. No rocket science is required. Big W could have had a special campaign on socks and BBQ charcoal. When did Australia lose its sense of humour? Especially at the expense of our neighbours across the ditch. It is not to condone Jones’ remarks but it is only because NZ PM Jacinda Ardern is the high priestess of woke causes that these corporates have buckled.

If the decision to advertise on Jones’ program was made because of his reach and ideally the “right” demographic for their products, will they stand to gain anything from this? Haven’t they studied Gillette’s latest 180-degree flip on trying to win back customers they have probably lost for good in that ridiculous self-inflicted $8bn brand destruction?

The Jones’ clientele is likely to remain exactly the same. The ratings will unlikely budge a jot. The activists moaning to have ads pulled are probably the least likely to use their products and services in any case.

For instance, why would anyone think that Commonwealth Bank (CBA), which has been found seriously wanting in the ethics department after the Royal Commission, has any leg to stand on over Jones’ remarks? CBA is still pondering what to do. Do they follow the herd (proving marketing departments aren’t warranted) or twist 2GB’s arm to get some bonus slots for showing loyalty?

Here’s an idea. Why don’t CBA and others leave the moral grandstanding to their customers? When people withdraw cash at an ATM it is highly unlikely they’re going to punish them by closing their accounts. Why not keep tabs on the number of complaints from its 10m customers and see if they number more than 0.000001% of the total. Don’t marketing departments use data? Clearly not.

So watch this space. Corporate boardrooms might think their marketing teams walk on water but if they opened their eyes for a moment would soon find their utter lack of creativity and zero value add as clear as crystal. Or maybe they’re just as out of touch to fall for the Yes, Minister PowerPoint presentation.

Look at the bullying by groups such as Mad Fucking Witches. Can corporates take activists seriously with names like that? How weak are they to fold when words like “complicit” are thrown at them. Once again marketing departments should study data, not fear standing up for themselves.

The double standards of companies like Koala Mattresses, which is happy to have the potty-mouthed Clementine Ford as a brand ambassador (who has a long track record of tweeting profanity, misandry and killing all men) but preach sanctimonious tripe over pulling advertising from Alan Jones’ program.

Make no mistake. The woke are already looking like the bigger joke. These self-appointed enforcers of a moral points system President Xi might approve of have even ignored Jones’ unconditional apology for his remarks. Tells you exactly what ideology is being preached inside so many Australia’s companies. It is hardly the stuff that will rescue them in a slowdown. The ones which have cut Jones have signalled why they don’t make good investments. Get woke. Go broke.

NB Mad Fucking Witches deleted this post because as always with the radical left the only free speech that matters is their own.

XR don’t even believe their own BS

Interesting to see that the Extinction Rebellion (XR) don’t even believe their own prophecies. How interesting to claim 12 years to save the planet and then just strike it out with 12 months. Why not 12 weeks, days or hours? If indeed it is 12 months, why waste time to organize a rally in October? Why waste time? Surely yesterday makes more sense if we must panic.

The chap on the stands was talking about the wish for 10,000 arrests in the hopes presumably of overwhelming police resources and forcing a negotiation.

CM was caught in an interesting conversation with XR followers who were demanding CM was blocked from the forum. CM merely engaged with data and despite mentioning China was 29.3% of CO2 emissions the response was their emissions per capita were lower. While true, what an irrelevant argument to give a free pass to the Chinese when they emit c.30% and rising of the very gas XR are fretting about and demanding we remediate ASAP.

Another XR follower demanded CO2 look at his FB page to justify his command of climate change. Littered with pictures of Greta Thunberg and articles from The Guardian. In any event one post caught CM’s eye – one that CM went back to the XR followers who demanded CM was blocked to explain they should probably look in the mirror.

XR doesn’t rule over anyone but they certainly don’t allow criticism.

Man of Steal tripped up by his own kryptonite

The pin-up boy of politics, Canadian PM Justin Trudeau, has been found guilty by the Conflict of Interest & Ethics Commissioner (COIEC) of being involved with interfering in the SNC-Lavalin corruption scandal. Only 70 days to go before Canadian peoplekind can sack him at the election because he is not looking to resign.

What a shame this darling of the left has fallen foul of breaching the ethics code, not once but twice. One hopes Canadians would have wanted him to prioritize his own ethics before lecturing them on feminism, climate change, cutting $10m cheques to convicted terrorists and not having enough money to support veterans.

The COIEC wrote in his summary,

The first step in my analysis was to determine whether Mr. Trudeau sought to influence the decision of the Attorney General as to whether she should intervene in a criminal prosecution involving SNC-Lavalin following the decision of the Director of Public Prosecutions. The evidence showed there were many ways in which Mr. Trudeau, either directly or through the actions of those under his direction, sought to influence the Attorney General.

Having reviewed several possible means of intervening in the matter, Ms. Wilson-Raybould made it known in September that she would not intervene in the Director of Public Prosecutions’ decision.

Mr. Trudeau met with Ms. Wilson-Raybould on September 17, 2018, at which time she reiterated her decision to not intervene in the Director of Public Prosecutions’ decision to not invite SNC-Lavalin to enter into a remediation agreement. She also expressed to Mr. Trudeau her concern of inappropriate attempts to interfere politically with the Attorney General in a criminal matter. Following this meeting, senior officials under the direction of Mr. Trudeau continued to engage both with SNC-Lavalin’s legal counsel and, separately, with Ms. Wilson-Raybould and her ministerial staff to influence her decision, even after SNC-Lavalin had filed an application for a judicial review of theDirector of Public Prosecutions’ decision. These attempts also included encouraging her to re-examine the possibility of obtaining external advice from “someone like” a former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Unbeknownst to the Attorney General at that time, legal opinions from two former Supreme Court justices, retained by SNC-Lavalin, had been reviewed by the Prime Minister’s Office and other ministerial offices. Meanwhile, both SNC-Lavalin and the Prime Minister’s Office had approached the former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court to participate in the matter. The final attempt to influence Ms. Wilson-Raybould occurred during a conversation with the former Clerk of the Privy Council on December 19, 2018, as an appeal, on behalf of Mr. Trudeau, to impress upon her that a solution was needed to prevent the economic consequences of SNC-Lavalin not entering into negotiations for a remediation agreement.

Simply seeking to influence the decision of another person is insufficient for there to be a contravention of section 9. The second step of the analysis was to determine whether Mr. Trudeau, through his actions and those of his staff, sought to improperly further the interests of SNC-Lavalin.

The evidence showed that SNC-Lavalin had significant financial interests in deferring prosecution. These interests would likely have been furthered had Mr. Trudeau successfully influenced the Attorney General to intervene in the Director of Public Prosecutions’ decision. The actions that sought to further these interests were improper since they were contrary to the Shawcross doctrine and the principles of prosecutorial independence and the rule of law.

For these reasons, I found that Mr. Trudeau used his position of authority over Ms. Wilson-Raybould to seek to influence, both directly and indirectly, her decision on whether she should overrule the Director of Public Prosecutions’ decision not to invite SNC-Lavalin to enter into negotiations towards a remediation agreement.

Therefore, I find that Mr. Trudeau contravened section 9 of the Act.”

Trudeau had a hard task to out do his father for political incompetence. Yet he has exceeded admirably. From wearing Indian garb on a state visit to prosecuting the case on a plastics ban with water box bottle things and waving to empty airfields or speaking at the UNGA to a scattering if disinterested people on their mobile phones.

CM still wishes Rona Ambrose was Leader of the Conservatives but it looks as though Andrew Scheer shouldn’t have too much trouble becoming the next PM.
