Just in case you were wondering how many more prisoners per 100.000 Iran has or that other evil country Russia compared to that beacon of liberty and reason the US, here is a list of countries by the number of prisoners. It turns out that Iran has about 333 per 100.000 and Russia about 502. […]
I have never paid much attention to twitter but lately I have. I put a link on my homepage to my twitter page #Travellerev for those of you interested to follow my tweets!
The EU has approved one of the toughest sets of sanctions yet on Iran’s nuclear program. It includes banning the import of Iranian natural gas into union nations. The sanctions also include a ban on financial transactions between European and Iranian banks, with some exceptions for those involving humanitarian aid, food and medicine purchases. […]
From Prof. Michael Chossudovski This year’s Nobel Peace Prize was granted to the European Union (EU) for its relentless contribution to “the advancement of peace and reconciliation, democracy and human rights in Europe.” While the EU’s contribution to peace is debatable, the key issue is whether a union of nation states, which constitutes a political, […]
From the Economic Collapse blog: #1 Bank of Israel Governor Stanley Fischer says that the global economy is “awfully close” to recession. #2 It was announced last week that the unemployment rate in Greece has reached an all-time high of 25.1 percent. Unemployment among those 24 years old or younger is now more than 54 […]
Despite being one of the most stable and economically vibrant countries in the world, primarily as a result of its refusal to join the Euro, Switzerland is preparing for mass civil unrest in central Europe that could spill over its border, by mobilizing troops to deal with potential disorder. The Swiss military is adding four […]
Senator Arlen Specter the man who sold us the Magic bullet theory about how one bullet whirled and twirled around President Kennedy and Governor John Connally and caused about 8 wounds in all, died today.
Malala has been Global front page news as an example as to why we have to stay in Afghanistan but nowhere have we read as to why we have to bomb innocent children with Drones. Those children like Malala dreamed of going to school too. Turns out maybe Malala was not so much a real life hero but a publicity prop to keep us supporting the war and the killing of innocents.
In the coming days I will pay extensive attention to Clearing houses, their role in the Financial world and the fact that since September New Zealand has its own Clearing house and what that might mean for us private citizens.
I have long known my header was way past it’s sell by date. It was grisly, and no longer covered the subjects I talk about most such as Global finance and the economic collapse. But I always needed all my time to just keep up. I am looking for a more more professional page look […]
Update: Thank you Chris for pointing out the Price/Prize error. English is my second language and I know I make stupid mistakes sometimes! In what can only be described as a surreal choice the Norwegian Nobel Peace Prize was given to Europe. These days Europe only exist in the minds of a very small elite […]
This morning News Papers duly reported the arrest of Hone Harawira MP for his “part” in a demonstration. The demonstration was peaceful and Hone at the time was in his car listening to music. To arrest Hone the police claims they had to bash in the back window of his car to pull him out […]
With John Key prancing around Hollywood and Russell Norman telling us why a round of money printing would be a good idea seeing as everybody else is doing it you would almost forget we are thundering towards a 7th extinction event. Here are a few pointers: Israel shot an UAD , that is an Unmanned […]
While James Henderson over at the Standard is still trying to spin economic recovery in Europe let’s look at the reality of where most Europeans find themselves in: A devastating economic depression is rapidly spreading across the largest economy in the world. Unemployment is skyrocketing, money is being pulled out of the banks at an […]
Please share awesome lament this far and wide (people in Christchurch are printing this to give to people in the streets). Let them know we know!!! Neil McCormick Being Poor Being poor is knowing exactly how much everything costs. Being poor is getting angry at your children for asking for all the crap they see […]
let me start with an disclaimer: I do not condone Violence, Looting or Riots as a rule. In fact I absolutely abhor it. But when Crime, Looting and let’s face it Violence on an apocalyptic scale are being perpetrated by a small ultra rich cabal I don’t see how it can be avoided that other […]
With all this in mind I hope you will agree with me that in perpetuating the scam that is Reserve Banking system Russell Norman has shown he has not made a study of the current financial system and the continued growth which is needed in order to support the system and as a leader of a “Green” party has completely missed the mark and should resign as political leader!
In America many cities have banned feeding the homeless, in England the government is threatening to take the meagre dole people get to survive on and in Bahrain doctors who treated wounded protesters were convicted to jail for doing so. The result is more crime, more desperation and more violent protests. The title of this […]
This morning the European Stabilisation Mechanism has been inaugurated. This was made possible because the German high court decided it was OK to give up financial independence to a group of unknown unelected Banking technocrats. Here is a video lining out some of the conditions these people have created for themselves to operate under: And […]
There are days I despair more than others and coming from me that says a lot as some of my readers may know. Yesterday Russell Norman, a man who should not be anywhere near politics as his rampant ignorance on matters finance proves to me (mind you I could easily say the same for most […]

Update: the TPP treaty was also mentioned. John Key was told it should have very strong copyright clauses. I wonder what John Key has to do to get more movies our way but by the sounds of it includes something like selling his and possibly our souls. John Key admitted that the subject of Kim […]

Just in case you’re wondering what is important to John Key other than crawling up America’s military/homeland security’s ass
20 years ago a plane crashed in Amsterdam. I remember of that day a plane flying crazy low over our house in the evening and the news breaking through every program on TV that that plane I heard flying over our apartment block had crashed in another apartment block just seconds away on the other […]
If you are like me and think that the death of 3000 global citizens in a terrorist attack needs to be properly investigated in order to establish who, what and how you are an exception. If you think that assassinating a president and knowing who is actually ruling you are important matters and we should […]
Hat tip to Eddy from the Standard. Here is a link to a video made three days after the invasion of Dotcom’s house where John Key shows he knew full well Kim Dotcom was a resident.
