Will John Key Blame Labour When The First Bomb Goes Off?

I believe that the millions of people uprooted from their war torn countries are what they say they are: Desperate refugees who just want peace. I also believe that we are ruled by psychopaths who are making a killing (no pun intended) out of the wars they are starting left right and centre. I believe […]

Introducing Social Bonds Or How National Is Privatising Health Care

This week, only a week after they closed relationship Aotearoa, the government announced that they were introducing social bonds to private investors. They are doing so to allow private investors the chance to invest in mental healthcare. The idea is that people invest in these bonds and only if the results are measurably positive will […]

Has The Wetiko Finally Arrived In New Zealand Or Why John Key Lost It.

In February 2013 two years ago I linked to three articles discussing the Cree Indian concept of  a spiritual cannibalistic entity they call the Wetiko. The concept brought to a wider concept by Psychiatrist Paul Levi and which he translates into the western term of Malignant Egophrenia. In essence the Wetiko is a spiritual and […]

On Tea breaks, Wage Docking And Job Insecurity. John Key’s National Unleashed The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse!

You see where I’m going with this? If you are in a job earning a wage, I don’t care whether that is in a small or big company or whether your Pakeha or Maori or whatever back ground, you have just been royally screwed up the ass by John Key and his National mates. Welcome to the race to the bottom!

Is Mark Textor Working For Fairfax Or Is Fairfax Working For Mark Textor?

Last week when driving to a bigger town near me I did as I do not too often because NZ talk radio makes me puke more often than not, I listened to talk radio and this time my barf response reached a new high. Three gentleman, two of the elder Pakeha persuasion and a Maori […]

The Washinton Consensus At The Base Of All “Free” Trade Agreements And Our Financial Elite

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost 40 years……It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of […]

What Happened To My Vote?

Saturday marked the first time I was ever able to vote as a permanent resident in New Zealand. I didn’t want to vote (I have always voted as a good little citizen) but after the revelations of Nicky Hager’s Book Dirty Politics detailing how the National  spin doctors used negative campaigning to drive people away […]

It’s Official. I Live In The Stupidest Country In The world!

I just turned off the TV in utter disgust. New Zealand has just voted in National again. But not just voted them in with a huge loss because of their wanton corrupt and hideously dirty politics but they gave them an absolute majority. It seems New Zealanders loved being lied to, robbed, screwed, bullied, spied […]

Update: @whaledump Suspended/ Long live @Whaledump2

This morning Twitter suspended the Whaledump account. I’m sure Nationals and Whaleoil’s boys are working overtime to stem the flow of information the voting citizens of New Zealand need to make up their minds. What they should have known is that the more you try to stop it online the more fun it is to […]

So John Key Does Not Want You To Demonstrate Outside His house?

“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.” – John F. Kennedy “What’s good for the goose is good for the gander” proverb Anonymous. John Key has a problem with 30 people holding a peaceful candlelight vigil outside his house after  he confessed to supporting and condoning extrajudicial killing with a weapon […]

Update! Fascism In 10 Easy Steps: Whereabouts Is New Zealand While John Key Is Trying To Sell Us the TPPA

Update:With the demise of the John Campbell show and the end of even that pityful amount of independent investigative journalism in New Zealand I thought I’d repost this post I wrote in October 2014 about how far we had descended into a fascist/corporatist state. With the imminent vote to make criticizing hurting politicians emotionally punishable […]

David Cunliffe Wants To Make A Change! With More of the Same….?

This week Mickey from the Standard blog published an article asking its readers and commentators what they wanted to hear from David Cunliffe in his state of the Nation speech. Suggestions ranged as far and wide as more taxes for the rich, no asset sales, stop fracking, living wages, less pollution, no TTP, Stronger laws […]

Mapping America’s Dwindling Invasion Coalition

Don’t worry, New Zealand’s governing Sea Of Stupid still firmly holds on to the sinking ship of Anglo Saxon empire! Via Zero edge, U.S. President Barack Obama is evidently not getting the multinational coalition his administration was expecting to share the burden of a limited strike operation against Syria. The British parliament has voted against […]

On Deutsche Bank, Tungsten and Yes, The Bank Is Advising Our National Government On Asset Sales

On an almost daily base stories about Tungsten salted Gold are appearing on, if not the mainstream media outlets, high profile financial blogs and websites of financial pundits. Tungsten which the same weight as gold but costs a fraction of the price of gold has been found inside gold bars over the last few months […]

Send Beyond Treason to all pro-Depleted Uranium voters

If you like me are against the use of Depleted Uranium in wars (which of course is something we should not be involved with either) you might want to consider the following. Here is a link to the video “Beyond Treason” which exposes the US and NATO mentality of the exposable  soldier and the real […]

Tightening the noose around our necks because they are stupid? Yeah right!

When you listen to people as they get upset about what National is doing to this country you hear a lot of them calling this government stupid, corrupt and greedy. While that is mostly correct and there are a lot of stupid corrupt and greedy people in our government today there is also some very […]

National courting Greens

I never liked Russell and as far as I’m concerned the Greens died when Jeanette left the parliament. Jeanette was the only politician in NZ with the political integrity to look at the events of 9/11 for example. So it’s no biggie for me but I put it to you that if the Greens sign […]

Wham bam thank you mam! The first day, the first foreign dick up NZ’s ass

All that  venality, anger, egotism that made you vote for National! Day one and you had the first foreign dick rammed up your ass NZ. But don’t worry by the time they are done with this country they will leave it forever. There will be no assets, no beauty, no clean unpolluted area left of […]

Corruption on the rise in New Zealand

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.

Selling our commons to enrich the few at the cost of our environment

It appears that National has decided to bribe farmers and fishers with the proceeds of selling our assets. The Canterbury farmers can dip into a fund to irrigate their land polluting our environment for which we all will pay and the fishery people can start fish farms and oyster farms when National scraps any legal […]

The Shock Doctrine: The rise of disaster capitalism!

Why would they ram a huge barge unto a fragile reef and let oil escape on purpose destroying an entire ecosystem and the lively hoods of thousands of people? Naomi Klein explains it in detail in her excellent book The Shock doctrine: The rise of disaster capitalism. It’s Credo? Never let a crisis go to waste […]

Simon Power, Westpac and another downright conflict of interest from a National Minister

Today it was announced that Simon Power would become the managing director of Westpac’s very rich peoples department. As some of you recall Simon Power announced a shock resignation in February this year and left many people wondering why as he was touted as the next PM for National if elected. Many people questioned what […]

I like Hone and why he should stay.

I don’t know the man personally but hope to one day shake his hand. I like his stance, his total disregard for political speak and his brutal honesty. Which is funny since I am as white and middle class as it comes and my ancestors were responsible for the word “apartheid”. But compared to the […]

Wall street versus Main street.

Our PM, John Key is a ex banker. His career at Merrill Lynch was both as the global head of the Foreign Exchange department and the European head of the Bonds and Derivatives trade. In other words he was running the parasitical scam that is the Derivatives trade for Merril Lynch. He made $ 50 […]

The Direction Of The Economy Is Not Going To Change

Yesterday the NZH announced that the Auckland housing market was picking up suggesting that the economic crisis was coming to an end. Today it is announced that the bounce in the housing market in April is unusual and last week Bollard announced another cut in the interest rate to 2,5% suggesting that previous cuts did […]

People leave NZ in droves

So much for it’s going to be better under National. The exodus of migrants to Australia hit a record in the past year, while tourist numbers from north Asia are slumping badly because of the global economic slowdown. In the past 12 months, 35,300 or almost 100 people a day have left for Australia. That […]
