Detroit is Bankrupt. Detroit is not the only city going bankrupt. In fact the entire financial world is a dead man walking. It’s just that most of us don’t know it yet.
New Zealand is the second NATO partner nation, after Ukraine, to contribute to Operation Ocean Shield. New Zealand has previously contributed to NATO operations, including SFOR in Bosnia and Herzegovina and ISAF in Afghanistan. For those of you still thinking NZ is not a “partner/member” of NATO I hope you will reconsider: Following a formal […]
Here is my point. Their English sister organization had to admit they received funds from the US after Snowden revealed they had been given large wads of cash by their US counterparts and the GCSB doesn’t want to say if they did. Well who is their Paymaster? The one they don’t want to talk about […]
In April 2012 I reported that New Zealand was accumulating Derivative swaps at an alarming rate. When I reported on this the amount of money in Derivatives was already an alarming $ 112 Billion and I have no reason to assume that is anything less as I write this. At the time Dr Sue Newberry […]
Tomtidomtidom… Australian coalminer Bathurst Resources’ shareholders have almost unanimously approved the company’s corporate shuffle across the Tasman.

The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country. Herman Göring The last couple of […]
I rest my case! The FT erroneously concludes that the boom-times are over for the military contractors: The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have been a boon to US contractors. The US has used so many of them in the conflicts that at times they outnumbered the military they supported. But the boom times are coming […]
One thing not mentioned in this otherwise excellent article is the fact that John Key has most of his paper wealth still in what is easily the most corrupt and hated bank; Bank of America and is as such seriously compromised. By Lewis Verduyn The Key government’s asset sales agenda is derived from the Washington […]
More rape and pillage courtesy of the NWO! The Government is planning “significant” changes to the Crown Minerals Act next year to make it easier for miners to explore and then extract minerals, and it will consult the public and industry soon. The Government has indicated for some time that it intends reviewing the act, […]
To most Kiwi’s the NATO attack on Libya was all about freeing the Libyan people and killing the latest Villain du Jour and the rebels we helped put into place were promised millions of NZ dollars to help them rebuild an infrastructure which until the attack had been perfectly fine. But who are these rebels […]
We’ve had it good the last two years and I’m sure most kiwi’s thought that with our own hard nosed businessman at the helm we’d be alright but last Friday that impression was corrected with the double down grade both Bankster John Key and Bill double Dipton (or should I say double downgrade) English had […]
Woa, the NZ mint is temporarily out of stock of both Fijian and New Zealand troy ounce silver coins!
You would almost forget that while Kiwi’s try to get to Rugby games with badly organised transport and frustration levels rising to unacceptable levels while Bill English’s brother gets choice jobs terrorist accusations get dropped after four years of terror for those accused the global economy continues to slow down and continues to collapse. Here […]
The riots are still in full swing in London and already the MSM is scaring the average middle class Kiwi into believing the rioting horses will soon rule the streets of New Zealand. Are we being prepared for unrest and a strong leadership in the pending crisis from John Key? Here are a few pointers: […]
But the left, the Anglo-American left? Where and what do our most prominent public intellectuals, including those with booking agents charging five-digit lecture fees, have to say about this world-wide revolt? Nary a word is found in left, center-left magazines, web sites and blogs. During their lucrative lectures, they thunder against the immoralities of war […]
“Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.” John Steinbeck In America the smearing of the “tea party” has begun. The “tea party” is in the true traditions of NAZI propagandisme a moniker given to a wide variety of angry groups of […]
Some of you may have noticed that I’ve been a bit slow with posting but to be hones I have been thinking about how to move forward. As a result I am currently working on several power point presentations on several subjects: Derivatives: Financial weapons of mass destruction. History and use of Derivatives translated into […]
According to RT (Russian TV) Tesco, the nuclear company and owner of the Fukushima plant has announced that the situation at reactor no 1 is far worse than previously thought.

I want to assure you that New Zealand does nothing in secret, does nothing behind it’s citizens back and that the government does not partake in secret spying organisations and above all they do not conspire. A leaked American study into military actions in Afghanistan reveals New Zealand is quietly plugged into the world’s most […]
Hat tip the Standard and the person who send them the video.
I don’t have any sympathy for armies and their suppliers they are as far as I am concerned merchants of death but isn’t it typical that while the global economy is collapsing and job after job after job is disappearing that the very group who is supposed to defend New Zealand and it’s population chooses […]
Western countries are worried that some of their citizens, in particular young men of Pakistani descent, who support the militant cause might travel to northwest Pakistan for militant training and to plot violence. Yesterday, I reported that the Age a Australian Fairfax owned online newspaper mentioned in September 2008 that Jihadist websites called upon Australian […]
As the sites of the disastrous fires in Australia are treated as crime scenes and Australians are looking for answers rumours are beginning to circle the Blogosphere and for the first time our MSM is prodding victims of these horrific fires to tell us what they would like to see happen if arsonists where to […]

Ah, the sweet smell of blackmail. Give us money or your money is gone. AXA no doubt has its veults full with Mortgage backed assets and feels an imminent collapse coming on. In fear of a “Bank run” they have closed up shop and sod the punters. More than $1 billion has been frozen in […]
I hate to break it to ya but it ain’t going to happen. Somehow, when I speak with NZ farmers they all seem to think that if America is no longer the big boy than we will sell our produce to China. This is not going to happen. Why? America spends or used to spend […]
So New Zealand has send troops into Afghanistan to support the coalition of the killing willing to catch Osama bin Laden, or save women or bring democracy or whatever and all that time Dubbya has no plans whatsoever to catch the big bad terrorist?
