This is a review of "Mohammed's Koran", a book that succinctly and convincingly exposes The Grand Lie: that Islam is a religion of peace. For centuries Western scholars have known and experienced that Islam is a religion of war. For over a thousand years, Mohammed and his followers have spread their ideology via violent jihad, killing countless millions and subjugating millions more.If you want a Koran for your library, this is the one you should buy.

2017 has been a deeply disappointing year for those of us on the right-wing or populist end of the political spectrum, with the hard-won victories of 2016 turning to a bitter counter-attack from the establishment in 2017. Though one could be fooled by the sudden rise of Emmanuel Macron and Jacinda Ardern into believing that some sort of great populist ...

While David Seymour continued his pushed for euthanasia over the last year, I've been reading John Locke's Two Treatises on Government. I had never read the original source of this philosophy from the Father of Liberalism himself. While reading the works of John Locke, I realised that most professed classical liberals probably haven't either.

There was outrage when it was announced that New Zealand had selected a man to be in our international weightlifting team, but the gamble has paid off with Hubbard bringing home a gold medal from the Australian Open and now a silver medal from the World Championships, both a historic first for our small island nation. Laurel, formerly known as Gavin, was ...

It will be capable of launching 54 metric tons into orbit, twice that of any other operational orbital vehicle and at one-third the cost. Elon Musk announced via Twitter that the launch would take place early next year from Cape Canaveral, Florida. Falcon Heavy to launch next month from Apollo ...

In response to my article about the Golriz Ghahraman I received a number of claims that she had done no wrong and never attempted to hide or embellish her life's story. This is easily disproved and David Farrar created a list so that I don't have to: 1. Nov 16 – Green newsletter. Says “worked as a lawyer for the UN, putting on trial politicians and military ...

When you read a headline like " Gun shop urges parents to buy their children weapons to 'keep them active' ", some people might get worried. The headline of course, is fake news. The advertisement was put in Wellington letterboxes by Gun City, promoting a deal on an air rifle for supervised children to shoot in the backyard. It contained safety information ...

It's not really a problem when you've never lived under enemy fire, worked as a defense attorney for war criminals, posed for photos with said war criminals, and co-authored a paper denying genocide. It's just a problem when your life is presented as being the opposite of what it really is. Where is Mashhad ? Golriz' hometown is about as far away from the ...

This letter was submitted to the Minister of Police and the NZ Police in response to a number of proposed changes in police policy around the secure storage of firearms. I believe these proposed changes to be illegal and ultimately ineffective and am disappointed by the way that the police treat law-abiding licensed firearms owners in this country. TO: ...
Welsh Assembly

Your humble correspondent is currently on a visit to the Land of Song, where presumably the All Blacks will dish out another rugby lesson in a week or so. After an informative visit to the Welsh Assembly today, I’m also hoping it’s not just rugby in which Kiwis could instruct my compatriots, but also how to spend public money (or better still, not spend ...

I consider Mark Steyn to be one of the best and most relevant commentators of our time. His words are almost always on point and his books from a decade ago read like prophetic visions of a dark future fast becoming reality. In his blog post, The Triumph of Amoral Will , he sums up the scene.

The fireworks seem louder and brighter than last year. Maybe it was just the new neighbours, but we certainly got the impression that the horizon looked and sounded more spectacular this year. The fun police get louder every year and you never know when they could ban the celebration.

The new government is facing what the New Zealand Herald have described as its "first international crisis", after European Union ambassador Bernard Savage condemned the government's plans to reopen trade negotiations with Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan. Quoth the article, At a briefing on Tuesday in Wellington, Savage said any moves made towards thawing ...
Jacinda Ardern Communist

With Jacinda Ardern duly sworn in as Prime Minister, what can we expect to see over the next 3 or more years? In a nutshell: more government, more taxes, and more centralised control. You won’t be surprised to hear any of that, but we can also expect more poverty. “No. Surely not,” you point out. “Jacinda has taken on a child poverty role herself, hasn’t ...

For nearly a month after the election, this country did not have a government. There were continuous stories about how Winston Peters was keeping everyone waiting and that he should just hurry up. There were any number of coalition options possible, but since a "Grand Coalition" and a "Blue Green" alliance were already ruled out before the election, Winston ...

Just over a month ago, on the 22nd of September, Facebook suspended the Make New Zealand Great Again page for "hate speech". There is of course, no real way to appeal such a decision and no way to get in touch with a real person at Facebook who can do something about it. Two days later, there was another notification: the page had been completely deleted ...

No one has ever accused NZ First leader Winston Peters of being politically correct, and that tradition is likely to continue after he made some inflammatory statements earlier today. In his latest interview , Peters responded to a question about David Seymour wanting to abolish the Department of Maori Affairs, by ignoring the question and attacking Seymour ...

A few weeks ago I created a graph of almost every political party in New Zealand history, to show how most of them were formed by merging with other ones and that political parties are almost always formed by coalescing with other parties, rather than as new movements on their own: Parties highlighted in pink are parties that were not formed as a result of ...
ACT New Zealand needs to hit the reset button big time and it will be much easier to do that in opposition.  They need to get back to their roots and be loud and proud as the Libertarian/Classical Liberal voice of New Zealand.

ACT will not be part of any coalition government this term. Good. ACT New Zealand needs to hit the reset button big time and it will be much easier to do that in opposition. They need to get back to their roots and be loud and proud as the Libertarian/Classical Liberal voice of New Zealand. Their values are supposedly that individuals are the rightful ...
