“When plunder becomes a way of life, men create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.” Frederic Bastiat
In an article published on Of two minds blog Charles Hugh Smith argues that if Hillary Clinton is not indicted for knowingly violating statutes regarding State Department security the republic, democracy and justice are dead. I put it to you that the republic died when the DOJ and Goldman Sachs colluded to make the banksters […]
I have nothing much to say about John Key’s nasty remarks about Labour defending rapists and paedophiles really seeing as we can’t mention names. And that of course is exactly what John Key and Crosby & Textor, his PR team want. This is how psychopaths work. They use the integrity and sense of fairness most […]
Bank of America has defrauded everyone from investors and insurers to home owners and the unemployed. So why does the government keep bailing it out and why does John Key have most of his paper wealth in the bank?
Nicky Hager heads to court today. I think he is going to need all the luck he can get because the law means nothing in this country any more. Rich prick National members and minions get name repression even when the victims want the name out (Name suppression of course was meant to protect the […]
So the Judge found John Banks guilty? Great! Here is what I would like to see as punishment. No, I know what you’re thinking, you’re thinking the guillotine as I have given people in the past the guillotine award when they showed themselves to be of the “let them eat cake” persuasion. I would like […]
When John Key went to China much was made about his meetings with President Xi Jinping and other high officials. Today an article in the NZ herald touts a “lobby group” interested in lowering the $ 10 million compulsory investments rich people have to make in order to be able to buy access to NZ as a resident.
With as my examples the Zero hedge Forerunning column and the Scott Report compiled by the Contrail administrator and friend of mine Rose, I thought I’d introduce a selection of the articles that pass my eyes in the morning to give my readers an idea of the plethora of news that doesn’t make the MSM […]
If the All Blacks refuse to address their Sponsor’s vile attempts to redirect the righteous anger of millions of Americans who are suffering because of the massive bailouts to AIG and other financial institutions I suggest Maori should re-appropriate the Haka and let the All Black be who they have chosen to be: A rich mans toy and money generator for more dishonest financial scams and products.
So here we have a Prime Minister who has $ 50 million to his name which he made while working in the most corrupt and greedy business on the planet and most Kiwi’s can’t get their head around the fact that he didn’t come back to help his countrymen out by being a hard nosed […]
Yesterday we broke the news of what is prima facie evidence, sourced by none other than the Federal Reserve’s official August 16, 2007 conference call transcript, that then-NY Fed president and FOMC Vice Chairman Tim Geithner leaked material, non-public, and very much market moving information (the “Geithner Leak”) to at least one banker, in this […]
If there is such a creature, the Devil could not have conceived of a better tool: Toxic shame. The shame of secrets, the shame that makes people weak and manipulable. The shame that poisons mind and corrupts. The shame that makes you hide and separate from others. The shame that makes you want to forget […]
I used to be a good little citizen. I actually thought that my tax money went to pay for things that served all of us and I was willing to pay that price for the common good. That changed when I began to research our financial system and the way banks create money they loan […]
The worst thing that can happen to any government is for reporters to report on corruption and other misdeeds the government perpetrates on its people. In order to avoid that governments throughout history have been declaring that their wheeling and dealing is of the utmost secrecy and done to keep the population safe. This then […]

Sign the Avaaz petition here Big banks have been caught in a massive scam to rig global interest rates, ripping off millions of people on their mortgages, student loans and more!

The scandal erupting in the Vatican is getting juicier and juicier and could potentially be even more damaging than the sexual molestation cases which earlier damaged the Vatican in unprecedented fashion. The former head of the Vatican Bank has become the Papacy’s Enemy Number One, after police discovered a trove of documents exposing financial misdeeds […]
I started out blogging on a blog I called “All you need is a crazy rich guy with a private army”. The premise of this blog being that Erik Prince who started the mercenary firm called Blackwater may very well have provided the crew responsible for the 911 attacks. He was very connected to the […]
Update: read an excellent open letter in a comment on the Standard blog in response to John Key’s spoiled little tantrum! John Key is not happy and what’s more like a truly disconnected narcissistic psychopath he is more than happy to tell children who probably have no idea what he is talking about! Isn’t it […]
This excellent post from Washington’s blog was originally titled; The failure to investigate 9/11 has bankrupted America financially and morally but that is not true of course. It has bankrupted the entire Western world both morally and financially. It allowed our masters to take us to war all over the globe. NATO with all it’s […]
John Banks lied about Dotcoms donations and how well he knew him in a scandal which could land him in jail for two years. Not only that he was a co-director of a financial company which gave out a prospectus which contained fraudulent information which landed another co director in jail yet John Key supports […]
The Sky City gambling palace is what it is; a shiny seductive trap to scam people out of their hard earned money with the promise of a good time and the chance to win some money. Everybody knows that 99.9% of all people gambling go home a great deal of money lighter and possibly closer […]
Today Labour’s broadcasting spokeswoman, Clare Curran pointed out that John Key had a conflict of interest because he chaired a committee which appointed his electorate chairman to the board of NZ On Air.

It seems everybody and their dog is wondering why the UK government caused a panic by saying buy all the petrol you can before “the strike” causing a massive panic! Here are some pointers: In the weeks leading up to “the panic” it was announced that some 50.000 pensioners would be taxed £323 annually on top […]
If you or I were partners owned a company and we had two equal partners and we were convicted of misleading possible new clients with fraudulent financial figures in our prospectus, I’m sure those partners if they co-signed the prospectus would have to defend themselves like I had to against the accusations. Not so it […]

Monkey see is monkey do and the secrecy and old boys networking of the National party seems to have found some following. 4% of people admitted to having paid a bribe and 73% of Kiwi’s believing that corruption was on the rise and the amount of complaints about judges is sky rocketing.
According to Matt Taibbi who other then his absolute denial as to the facts of 911 (Although he acknowledges we have been lied to about the events of that day) is an excellent reporter and an absolute master were it concerns the malfeasance of the to big to fail banks writes this excellent article about […]
A one-time limited GAO audit of the Federal Reserve that was mandated by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act has uncovered some eye-popping corruption at the Fed and the mainstream media is barely even covering it. It turns out that the Federal Reserve made $16.1 trillion in secret loans to their bankster […]
Private business is business for profit. Do I need to say more? This from Bloomberg.
