    So awesome!!! Thoroughly enjoyed listening to the great Henry Rollins. Thanks Martyn Bradbury excellent discussion and episode.

    Excellent discussion with a very impressive subject.

    Can’t have gone down too well with the 99% of those who post here on the subject, who are all convinced that Hillary is the handmaiden of Satan.

    If she manages half the advances he predicts for her, her administration would go down as the most effective in history, from a Left perspective.
    I certainly hope that Rollins knows what he has blundered into and doesn’t get too smugged before he leaves the country.*

    (*Smugged is (or should be) the common term for an ear-bashing from a holier-than-thou zealot).

    The US just loves to betray its allies, once the ypg was convenient in the fight against IsiS, then when Turkey got a bit anti Us, THEY CHANGED THEIR SIDES, ONCE AGAIN, DAMNED SHIT PEOPLE:

      With “damned shit people” I do of course not mean US Americans as a whole, but the ones running the show and responsible for all the crap that has been caused by misguided politics and strategies.

      And this is an interesting perspective that Henry Rollins presents us.

        Henry Rollins describes and outlines it brilliantly in the first few minutes of the interview and again at 16 -19:45s

    Yankee traitors:

    Nusra Front and others do the real fighting, but cowardly western and pro western forces are useless.

    What is two of the most effective ways of dumbing down the populace, and making them ignorant bigots and buffoons?

    Corporate run news and business run charter schools.

  7. Michael says:

    Trump is a multibillionaire businessman, not a multimillionaire. His business acumen and success outweighs his failures of years ago, and qualifies him in a league of his own as the best candidate for job reformation in America. He is quickly becoming rehearsed in the finer points of national and international politics by assembling around him competent and experienced politicians, such as his running-man Mike Pence. During his lifetime, he has gained much experience and first-hand insight in the political world despite being a businessman. In his new role, he is not a career-politician, but a self-funded, classical liberal, nationalist, populist and true patriot operating as an outsider free from the control of the elitist establishment which has brought America to ruins. His policies, which I think need to be refined (which is happening as I type), such as reinforcing the 1st Amendment, maintaining pro-2nd Amendment rights, redressing illegal immigration, repealing the TPPA (huge for NZ) & jobs, is the driving force behind his populace uprising and not just the anger and frustration of the people who have all rights under heaven to be so as they have been intentionally misled, and deceived over the last 30 years to become dumb-downed, ignorant bigots and buffoons. Corrupt governments destroy whole nations from the inside out. Does this pattern sound familiar Aotearoa?

    I just wished the show had at least one other panelist to bring balance to a very biased discussion based on “complex questions” that were answered in very general terms like ‘he gives bumper sticker answers’ he tickles that’ hmm? And because this is going out to the whole nation, I feel to give my opinion here as Rollins has done so. And by the way ‘I am reasonable’.

      So who would you have sit to offer another view on topics then?

      Jamie Whyte, Winston Peters, or a US person from the Fox News quarter of “thinkers”?

      I think Mr Rollins has given a very insightful commentary on most issues that were discussed, or do you think he should have been more “patriotic”, perhaps defend the mutilation of US soldiers coming back from Iraq and Afghanistan, where they were exposed to greatest risks?

      Hatred against the US has causes, and it was the US that once funded fighters that became the Taleban. It was also Israel that once supported Hamas in its early days, and see how well that panned out.

        Well said Mike!!

        “So who would you have sit to offer another view on topics then? Jamie Whyte, Winston Peters, or a US person from the Fox News quarter of “thinkers”?

        That’s an ok line-up, but not the best especially the biased, sellout media known as Fox news who are in the pockets of the establishment. I also realise and respect that this was a one-one interview and that Waatea do a great job of bringing alternative ‘un-baised’ news to the people where NZ mainstream biased media fail to do so.

        “I think Mr Rollins has given a very insightful commentary on most issues that were discussed, or do you think he should have been more “patriotic”

        I respect his comments, those are his opinions. He does, however, immediately attack Trump and calls those that follow him as “unreasonable”. Hang on a minute, there just might be Trump followers in Aotearoa watching this. Patriotism is matter of what you support and strongly oppose, which was demonstrated during the discussion.

        “defend the mutilation of US soldiers coming back from Iraq and Afghanistan”

        Leave those people alone, it’s not their country, get out. Period.

      You really didn’t listen did you Michael? I guess its because you idolize Trump… a failed businessman, a lying con artist, and a reality show cardboard pop out that has never paid tax.

      • Michael says:

        “You really didn’t listen did you Michael”? I guess its because you idolise Trump.

        Hearing is one thing, listening tentatively is another. Your presupposition of idolising Trump is, of course, conjecture as you have pointed out. After watching 95% of the Democratic & Republican rallies this year, I’m in a more informed position to support (not idolise) Trump than Hillary. Do you support TPPA? Trump repeatedly stated that he will repeal it in the US, if he becomes President. When that happens, then the TPPA will fail here in Aotearoa. For this reason alone, I support him among other policies. Hillary, on the other hand, is currently under FBI investigation, who in their right mind would support her, especially one from America.

        In addition to hearing, one needs to read more into the subject matter at least to listen more tentatively so as to form a better argument beyond very short, and abrupt angry sounding comments. I’ve engaged you more than I should.
