On Thursday 9 October, a three-member arbitration panel for the conveniently Washington-based International Centre For Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) ordered South American country to pay $1.5 billion to oil giant Exxon for the 2007 expropriation of assets.

Those of you who have been reading this blog for a while know that I have never asked for money. I don’t because I don’t want to be beholden to anyone and I want to be able to write what I want without ties that bind.
As John key begins his smear campaign of Islam and it’s followers in New Zealand I thought I’d give you this video link of Mehdi Hasan who so eloquently argues the Muslim corner at the great Oxford university: Islam is a peaceful religion debate.

David Cameron declared all of us who want a new and independent investigation into the events of 9/11 and 7/7 to be non-violent extremist enablers of ISIS and other so called Muslim extremist groups in his speech before the UN.

Both John Key and Reserve Bank Governor Graeme Wheeler are global banker insiders. Graeme Wheeler in fact spend much of his career at the top of the World bank implementing the Washington Consensus and was living in Washinton working as a financial advisor at the time he was called back to take the job as governor of the NZ Reserve bank. He is what I call a foreign Kiwi, just like John Key and the Ian Fletcher who is now heading the GCSB.
The system “should not be used for surveillance or monitoring of specific individuals (whether or not identifiable by name, and whether not facilitated by supporting technology) except in respect of specific criminal acts or organised crime or other reasonably suspected criminal behaviour (including terrorism) on the basis of such evidence or reasonable suspicion of criminal offending,” the principles state.

And we know what this world view is, the peddling of lies: […]
This is the official video from the 2011 Toronto hearings. It is a powerful documentary about the four days of hearings about the most important questions and answers with regards to the events of 9/11. I think it is very important for all of you out there to watch this with as many people as […]

Both David Farrar and Cameron Slater have very good connections with the Likud party from Crazy Bibi and the MSM is almost all owned by just one corporation here in NZ.
John Key loves war. He was screaming with anger when we didn’t go into Iraq the second time the US started bombing the shit out of that country. Here is what John Key wants us to partake in and remember that the ammunition and bombs they are using are loaded with Depleted Uranium guaranteed to […]
