Despite much of Auckland’s CBD being shut down with multiple intersection sit-ins and even the iconic Auckland harbor bridge likewise shut down, John Key signed the TPPA deal locking New Zealand into onerous binding trade agreements.
Most likely this spells the death blow for the struggling New Zealand economy, which some pundits argue never really recovered for the 1987 Wall street stock market crash. New Zealand is another Greece in the making, with multinational corporate vultures already circling the trapped prey.
For New Zealand now the TPPA is law, but for how long will the law be respected in New Zealand?
After the Burns Oregon peaceful armed stand off a Protester was escaping the compound and was ambushed by FBI. While attempting to surrender after plowing into a snow bank next to the FBI road block, FBI agents shoot him. After the first shots he puts his hands down instinctively to the wound site and then is apparently shot in the back by another FBI agent.
Where is the “hands up don’t” shoot rhetoric?
In the USA now there is now a ‘shoot to kill’ policy even for surrendering suspects.
New American revolution when?
So go on, stick your fingers in your ears, shut your eyes and repeat your thought terminating cliches, it won’t change the truth though.
-Mein Kampf, Aldolf Hitler’s famous book has now gone back on sale in Germany after decades of being banned. Part of the reason the book in now available is that the copyright has run out so the book is now public domain.

Interestingly this is on the back of the refugee/invader crisis and a growing support for various forms of nationalism with movements like PEGIDA becoming popular.
What the German controlled media (Lügenpresse) don’t want you to know is that the ‘refugees’ are a horde of violent, maniacs, rapists and thieves. The directive is to cover up the reports of the events in multiple German cities of the last weeks ( and months) is the huge spike in rapes, assaults, murders and robberies committed by the ‘Syrian rape army’. Its clear most of the migrant/invaders are only in Germany to leech the generous social welfare (sozialtourismus) and commit crimes. Angela Merkel is destroying Germany from the inside
Germany’s experiment with Socialism in the form of cultural Marxism is drawing to a close and will likely radically revert to a former socialism experiment.
More over the top reactions to some minor cheeky behavior. Feminazis have no sense of humor and want to live in a world coated in cotton balls. No word on whether she took him up on the drinks offer.
Maybe we should start a fund for Mel McLaughlin to buy cat food for the 12 cats she will be harboring when she is desperate and dateless the age of 40.
Probably just not grown up enough to do the job.
Have we been under a rock or what? This little gem has been around for a while. The idea expressed here is that by moving the taxation burden away from land and onto labour (income taxes) and consumption (GST), landlords and land speculators have been getting a free ride at the expense of everyone else in the economy. While this is not the only problem in the economy it is certainly a very large one. This is why land prices have gone into a bubble and will continue on a boom-bust cycle until land taxes are a larger tax base. This is also why income tax and GST is so high and will continue to get higher.
When Donald Trump entered the presidential race, many people thought of his entry as a novelty, perhaps even some free publicity. But then something unexpected happened, Trump started voicing the concerns of a muzzled sector of US society. Trump was off the standard political script, anti-Immigration, primarily illegal immigration from Mexico. Estimates are than as many as 10 million illegal immigrants from Mexico are working in the USA at any one time. This was stunning enough and tapped in to a ground swell of support. Following the latest terror attacks in Paris, he added a ban on Islamic immigration in the USA. The media simply went bananas, so did the voting public.
Trumps lead in the polls grew, showing he had tapped in the true sentiment of the public.
The political establishment hate him, along with the left leaning media. But right now he is a stand out contender with some polls making him electable as an independent president. The last time an independent was elected president was in the time of the founding fathers.
The next most damaging aspect is the American public has become accustomed to the president acting as a dictator and legislating through executive orders. While this is not what executive orders are meant to be for, the president has been set to allow dictatorial power. Democrats didn’t care about dictatorial power of a democrat was doing it inside their narrative, but now the narrative has changed they are very worried and are screaming blue murder.
It’s a year out from the US presidential election and Trump has a commanding presence in the minds of voters. Could Trump be a true change in political direction for the USA?
If running as a republican candidate Trump’s chances are even better.
