    Not the mainstream media: Keiser Report

    https://www.rt.com/shows/keiser-report/416473-episode-max-keiser-1178/

    “Max and Stacy discuss the latest numbers on the opioid crisis in America and what they mean for the future health of the economy.

    In the second half, Max continues his interview with Tyson Slocum of Public Citizen about the energy sector and the associated geopolitics.”

      Yes RB I see that the NZ Health authorities are cracking down on opioid use here now too.

      Is this why we have so many ‘wingnuts’ here now?

      Damn John Key and his administration with filthy loose policies on drugs.

    With all this PM baby chatter, does any body in NZ Inc actually care about REAL news?

    ‘Dotcom seeks millions in damages’

    http://www.radionz.co.nz/news/national/348555/dotcom-seeks-millions-in-damages

    “A lawyer for the internet entrepreneur Kim Dotcom says he has filed papers seeking hundreds of millions of dollars in damages from the government over an erroneous arrest warrant.”

  3. Marc says:

    So what are NZers concerned about, whether the baby of Jacinda will be a boy or girl, and whether the new mum will cope?

    Or do some still find time to inform themselves about what else goes on in the world?

    ‘Turkey’s troops cross over into Syria’s Afrin’

    http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2018/01/free-syrian-army-launches-ground-operation-afrin-180121062038046.html

    So the FSA, once supported by the US, at one stage allied with Nusra Front (deemed ‘terrorists’), then fighting in other arrangements, and now supported as willing mercenaries by Turkey, is fighting for the Turks to get hold of part of Syria.

    They got ISIS dealt to, but that was just the beginning, of more to come, the war in Syria is no longer just a ‘civil war’, it is now a war over influence, territory and control, fought by various interfering countries, one being Turkey.
