So what happens if Mueller finds no collusion?

By   /  March 24, 2019  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  3 Comments

Mueller’s report is finally over and while the White House may try and censor anything too embarrassing, it doesn’t look like Trump is panicking at all and that could suggest that there’s no evidence of collusion.

If that’s the case, I think we are in real trouble.

How Big Is Your Army?

By   /  February 26, 2019  /  Chris Trotter, Most Recent Blogs, Setting The Agenda  /  31 Comments

POLICE NUMBERS just topped 13,000. Forty years ago there were fewer than half that number – considerably fewer. Astonishingly, we now have almost as many cops as we do soldiers. At last count the New Zealand Defence Force numbered 14,921. Put those numbers together and the state’s coercive potential turns out to be not far shy of 30,000 highly-trained and fearsomely-equipped men and women. Those who allow expressions like “revolution” and “class war” to trip so merrily off their tongues should be required to explain where their 30,000 highly-trained and fearsomely-equipped men and women are currently hiding – just waiting for the word.

Kashmir Convoy Attack – Who Else Is Responsible

By   /  February 17, 2019  /  Curwen Rolinson, Most Recent Blogs, Setting The Agenda  /  2 Comments

So this is a curious thing. The recent attack in Kashmir was carried out by Jaish-e-Mohammed, headed by a figure by the name of Masood Azhar. Understandably, India sought UN assistance in curtailing this ongoing threat; a move which the People’s Republic of China has (once again) blocked. Just as it has consistently done for more than ten years now.

Accusing Iran of genocidal anti-Semitism is designed to strengthen western hawks

By   /  February 14, 2019  /  Donna Miles, Most Recent Blogs, Setting The Agenda  /  8 Comments

It is important to understand that bombastic rhetoric is very common in the Iranian lexicon. Verbal posturing and mistranslated or misunderstood quotes do not count as a credible evidence of Iran’s “genocidal” threat against the Jewish people.

Much has been made of the number of people “fleeing” Venezuela.
