The self-fulfilling evangelical death cult prophesy that pushed Trump into declaring Jerusalem the capital of Israel
For this voting block, the Bible is a literal version of events, not a metaphorical one. They believe the Earth is less than 10 000 years old, they believe climate change won’t flood the planet because God showed Noah a rainbow and they believe that the end of times and Armageddon could be upon us and they will all be raptured away to heaven.Read More →
US President Trump’s surrender to Israel’s territorial ambitions reveals contempt for international law, in particular the Fourth Geneva Convention. Trump’s announcement contradicts even the most recent Security Council Resolution, UNSCR 2334 of December 2016.

By announcing the United States recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, Trump has sent two very important messages to the extreme Zionist elements in Israeli society. The first message is brutally simple: the so-called “two-state solution” to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is dead.

Not just at the UN Security Council, but everywhere Israel needs American support.Read More →
Trump recognising Jerusalem as Israel’s capital the stupidest, most corrupt, most unthinking, most damaged and most infantile decision of his entire stupid, corrupt, unthinking, damaged, infantile Presidency
We are in for dark days comrades.
Climate change has invited Famine and Death, Trump has invited Conquest and War.
We have the makings of our Apocalypse in the valley of Armageddon.
It paints a bleak picture of the current NZ media landscape and highlights the real threat that the majority of news media is now in private hands meaning we are ripe for political manipulation and exploitation by those commercial interests that own those media.Read More →
I think the far more horrifying reality is that Trump is not going anywhere and even if he is impeached and tied up in some further prosecution, we are all simply being hopeful that this nightmare ends rather than that being the reality.Read More →
Since the 2007-2008 Global Financial Crisis, all the developed world has done is kick the day of market reckoning down the road with more and more money printing. At some point this band-aid won’t be able to stem the pressure building and it will rupture with a backlash that will make the depression look like a week without pocket money.Read More →

The working class of Catalonia is not overwhelmingly of Catalonian heritage. In the Franco years, Barcelona was flooded by ethnic Spanish workers seeking a better life. Generations on, Catalonia is as much Spanish as it is Catalan.Read More →
On 2 November 1917, at the height of the First World War, Britain’s imperial voice expressed itself in a statement of intent from its Foreign Secretary, Lord Balfour, to Lord Rothschild – for passing on to the Zionist Federation. The message is known as the Balfour Declaration. The 30-year-long British occupation of Palestine that followed […]Read More →

There was a lot of behind the scenes happiness that Labour and NZ First were making great head way in terms of policy agreements, but the fact that the actual model of how the Government would function hasn’t yet been discussed should have Jacinda blinking rather than winking.Read More →
