    NOT the mainstream media:

    ‘CrossTalk on Syria: Path to War’

    “The drive towards war against Syria is unmistakable. The pretext is still another alleged chemical attack. As usual no evidence is presented. As usual conclusions are drawn before an independent investigation. But this time there is a difference. Syria can defend itself and it has powerful allies. We live in very dangerous times.

    CrossTalking with Michael Maloof, Joe Lauria, and Richard Murphy.”

    So on this Jacinda has taken a firm position, it seems, no more new oil and gas exploration off-shore:

    With the hysterical reactions by the industry, or some within it, and with the ‘outrage’ by the National opposition, we will soon see how this will play out .

    I sense, now NZers will soon realise how ADDICTED they have been and are to fossil fuel use. They may panic and give the Nats a landslide win in 2020, loving their SUVs more than the environment.

    That is just about the truth about most NZers, hypocrites galore, in my humble view, easy to buy with a wad of dollars waved in front of their face, in a country so ‘transparent’ and so ‘not corrupt’, as they claim. Let us see, let us see, how this will play out, especially for this government.

  4. Marc says:

    This man is in charge of the largest power on the planet, and he goes loose like a loose cannot of shooting from the hip. When will WW3 start, I wonder, it seems rather soon. People just put up with it or ignore it, unbelievable, we live in total imbecile territory when it comes to most of humanity:

  5. Marc says:

    Trump rules by Twitter, like a medieval ruler sending out his messenger to tell the commoners his authoritarian opinion or order:

  6. Marc says:

    Get this for a third world country, that is NZ Inc, good on to the work by new AAAP spokesperson, who I believe being of good Mexican revolutionary background, is VERY dedicated to raise issues:

    So we have WINZ pay special needs grants for the poor and homeless to live in TENTS!

    Welcome to NZ Inc 2018, a truly ‘developing’ country, not quite there, I suppose.

  7. Marc says:

    Despite of all the shit in the world, and doom and gloom, let us go down in style and have some fun:

  8. Marc says:

    The precious Gal Costa, a bit harassed:

  9. Marc says:

    I am dying, for the after life:

    A bit bizarre, take it in the above context.

  10. Marc says:

    OOOh ‘chaos’, oh so, Trump expects respect:

  11. Marc says:

    Hamburg police, like in much of Germany in isolating (kettling in) protesters, so they deal to them individually and isolate them so it is, they also are harsh to dissenting protesters, hence this escalation, it is not good, it is not only the protesters it is also the police at guilt:

  12. Marc says:

    A bit bewildering, silly idiots and cowards, but not really, aye:

  13. Marc says:

    One of the most radical an determined protests there have never been, a protest showing police state enforcement firmly rejected by citicens:

  14. Marc says:

    This is ff real, it is time NZactivists learn the game, and take no more shit from these over arching arseholes:
