Comment: Peters wants utu (Revenge) over Joyce’s attacks

Winston Peters Utu

Patrick Gower – Newshub – Tuesday, 26 September 2017

Winston Peters could be out for revenge against National over their attempts to take him down during the campaign.
A New Zealand First source has told Newshub Peters is particularly resentful towards Steven Joyce, whom he personally detests.
Peters believes Joyce orchestrated a four-pronged attack against him by National:
Steal NZ First policies

The first prong was to steal policies and ideas from Peters, or suggest ones which would appeal to his voters.
Those were things like bootcamps for young serious offenders, getting tough on gangs, sanctions against beneficiaries who fail certain criteria such as drug tests, and the 110km/h speed limit.
Squash his party vote

The second prong was to squash his party vote. The idea was to boost National’s popularity, while forcing Peters’ head below the 5 percent threshold.
They did boost their own votes, but failed to force him under 5 percent.
Drive him out of Northland

With the third prong, drive him out of Northland, they ran a successful, gloves-off campaign with Matt King. He beat Peters to become the local MP.
The aim of this was to take away Peters’ security net to get into Parliament. It actually worked but because he had that party vote, he was safe.
Drop a scandal on him

And last but not least: Peters believes National dropped a scandal on him.
His pension over-payment was leaked to the media. It hit him hard but didn’t knock him down.
Now he wants utu – revenge.

The Newshub tip-off
The tip was given to Newshub on the Friday six weeks out from the election just as National was undertaking its co-ordinated attack on Winston Peters.
It was an anonymous phone call, from a blocked number, from a man who knew lots of details.
It could have been a public servant.
But investigations by the Ministry of Social Development, Inland Revenue and Ministerial Services, which manages staff in the Beehive, have all failed to find the leaker.
That leaves a senior crew as suspects – two ministers, Anne Tolley and Paula Bennett, as well as the Prime Minister’s chief-of-staff Wayne Eagleson.
Winston Peters’ second National victim
Paula Bennett has been upfront about the fact she won’t be Deputy Prime Minister any more.
She follows David Carter, who has to give up being Speaker because Peters hates him and won’t countenance it.
Will Peters claim another scalp?
There is talk that Winston Peters wants another scalp if he is to do business with National. It could be Nick Smith. Or it could be Steven Joyce – Peters may be hinting that Joyce is unacceptable as Finance Minister?
NZ First similarities with Labour-Greens
The sources inside NZ First have directed me today to a number of speeches Winston made recently in which his approach to the economy is much more aligned with Labour and the Greens than it is with National.
This is all a clear play by NZ First to get the message out there that it’s not a done deal with National, and they’re deliberately getting the message out to raise the stakes in the negotiations.
Tomorrow, we see the man himself. Winston Peters is set to front up at Parliament and all the political positioning will simply go next level.
So National might be smiling on the outside – but they are full of fear, waiting and wondering if Peters’ utu is about to strike.

The Free Individual is greater than the State

Bill Of Rights freedom

by Jon Rappoport
September 20, 2017
In a sane society, the Bill of Rights would be studied in great detail, in every school and college.
The historical incursions on, and the crimes against, the Bill of Rights would be laid bare and excoriated.
“Grand juries” of students would be formed to investigate, in detail, these incursions and crimes, and wherever possible track them to their sources.
Reading the Bill of Rights, the first 10 Amendments to the Constitution, it is plain that the natural rights of the individual are confirmed—and also, the attempt to exercise any sort of excessive power over the individual is shackled.
Why?
Because the Founders saw the handwriting on the wall, engraved for centuries in totalitarian regimes and theocracies.
Here are the basics of the Bill of Rights:
Freedom of speech, religion, and the press.
The right to bear arms.
Housing of soldiers: “No soldier shall, in time of peace, be quartered in any house without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war but in a manner to be prescribed by law.”
Protection from unreasonable search and seizure.
Protection of rights to life, liberty, and property.
“In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor; and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.”
“In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury shall be otherwise reexamined in any court of the United States than according to the rules of the common law.”
Excessive bails, fines, and punishments are forbidden.
“The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”
“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.”
What do these 10 Amendments say about the individual? They say he is of greater importance than the State.
They say the purpose of basic law is protection of the freedom of the individual.
They say that, no matter how many scurrilous critics and logic-choppers may come along and parse the Bill of Rights to their advantage and against the individual, these critics should be cast aside, at the very least.
They say that there is something potentially glorious in the individual.
They say today’s collectivists are deluded, and in many cases are consciously attempting to hijack the basic notion of freedom—and substitute instead, a plethora of free goods and services derived from the State, which collects overbearing taxes and invents money out of thin air, for the purpose of creating unfree and dependent individuals.
Most importantly, in today’s society, these 10 Amendments stand on their own, as robust and profound Ideas, no matter who first conceived them, no matter what those men’s motives may or may not have been at the time of conception.
The ideas are alive. Now.
Centers of education may promote the decimation of the Bill of Rights, may attack the primary sources, may try to wage war against these ideas, but their assault is transparent to those who can see and think.
Those little would-be dictators of the mind are themselves already slaves. And so they want to make other slaves.
Europe, whose great thinkers invented the cradle of liberty, is falling under the sway of collectivist vultures. As a group, those gnawing birds of prey are centered in the European Union, the “share and care” face of fascism.
During decades of unearthing what corrupt European and American fascists have been trying to achieve, I have seen individuals rise up from the swamp of sticky economic, political, and spiritual collectivism and reassert and regain their natural freedom.
It’s a sight to behold.
It embodies a dawn that reawakens the mind and spirit.
It’s a call to all of life.
It reestablishes the great adventure of living and making a future of one’s own choosing.
The education system blacks that out. Major media do, too.
The whole idea of public education, at the beginning, in America, was to educate children about what it meant to be a free and responsible citizen in the new Republic.
That mission was abandoned.
In the early 20th century, powerful foundations (Carnegie, at the forefront) completely derailed education by removing significant study of the founding documents of the nation. This was no accident. It was an effort to control society, to make it over in the image of worker-drones fitting into slots, for “the greatest good of the greatest number.”
From its inception, the Carnegie Foundation was consciously focused on the most effective way to control a population. Its first choice was war. In its absence, the number two method, it decided, was education.
The individual, nevertheless, still possesses his natural freedoms. These freedoms are prior to any laws enacted to confirm them.
But the individual has to find/assert those freedoms within himself, on his own.
His future rises and falls on that profound effort, which begins with recognizing he is separate from any and all forms of the collectivist “equality” glob…
William James, American philosopher (1902): “Probably a crab would be filled with a sense of personal outrage if it could hear us class it without ado or apology as a crustacean, and thus dispose of it. ‘I am no such thing,’ it would say; ‘I am myself, myself alone’.”

You Can’t Handle the Truth! by G Squared

JFK truthNext month (October 2017) the final JFK Report is to be realeased.
It was determined last year that the herds will be given something extra; but will never be told the truth.

I will detail in upcoming articles how  JFK was murdered. For now, this will set the stage…

 

 

‘You can’t handle the truth.’ And of course, you’re not even entitled to it. Think of it as The People of America, extended to be all in The American Zone of Influence, are one large Retard in a Dementia Care Unit.

The Retard is employed in permitted commercial activity. They are an unseen Slave Labour. They have no freedoms, own nothing (it’s all a big legal construct, feel good, lie), know nothing, and only comprehend what they are told. It’s all an illusion.

The Retard is Protected (psychologically believed) to an extent. That does not include when used for experimentation, or thrown as cannon fodder.

They work, consume basic essentials to sustain their ‘useful life’, and waste all they can on things, as the stuff of a useless existence. The measure of believed success.

Slaves damaging other lives in their classes and below. Slaves to their self-concocted social induced Debt, and its not understood Inflationary debasement of the medium of exchange that drives them.

A fictitious, debt-laden, leveraged, fractional, and manipulated, baseless Currency. The ‘True Economic Value’, not the fictional ‘Accounting Value’. Exchangeable for three cents in 2017, as against one hundred cents in 1917.

A Retard requiring lies on lies, disinformation on misinfirnation, and a belief system so fictionally constructed that it bears no relevance to any Truth or Reality.

America and its Sucklings ; where all the Non- included wish they were, and ‘Terrorism’ is the expression of Displeasure of all those Peoples not included in The Great American Dream.

NZ Pipeline Leak Crisis: “You reap What You Sow”

by Martin Harris

New Zealand readers can’t help but have seen and heard the MSM reporting on the Marsden Refinery pipeline leak that has brought Auckland to it’s knees. “Thousands of flights cancelled” as jet fuel supply runs dry. “it could take up to 2 weeks to fix”, which means this will likely impact on the pumps shortly.

The mainstream news is, quite rightly, highlighting the weakness exposed in the single pipeline that supplies Auckland.

“A fuel pipeline that supplies Auckland has been damaged and it has already disrupted travel for thousands of people. Here’s what we know so far.

WHAT HAPPENED?

A 168 kilometre-long pipeline supplying jet fuel, petrol and diesel from the Marsden Point refinery in Northland to tanks in Wiri, Auckland, has been out of action since Thursday. It’s believed to have been hit by a digger being used to extract swamp kauri near Ruakaka.

Marsden Point refinery, Ruakaka, Whangarei. The pipeline that supplies fuel to Auckland from the refinery has been cut ...

STUFF

Marsden Point refinery, Ruakaka, Whangarei. The pipeline that supplies fuel to Auckland from the refinery has been cut after being damaged by a digger.”

https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/96941232/A-cut-pipeline-is-causing-a-jet-fuel-shortage-at-Auckland-Airport-Heres-what-we-know-so-far

Two things they SHOULD be reporting on but aren’t:

Firstly, the ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT caused by spillage from the damaged pipeline,

and secondly, THE CAUSE of the damage. Initially, the reports said that an excavator extracting Swamp Kauri was responsible, but this aspect of the story quickly died before the spotlight could focus on this issue. (NOTE MENTION OF THIS IN THE ARTICLE ABOVE) this aspect has been subsequently downplayed.

These are both important environmental aspects of the story that are being swept under the carpet, and I think a clue as to “why?” lies with the Swamp Kauri issue. For those readers who may not know, Kauri is an endangered native tree. Thousands of them, however, lie buried and preserved in North Island swamps, apparently the victim of some ancient natural catastrophe. This is a finite resource and is supposedly managed and protected by law, to be used with care by local artisans to create uniquely New Zealand high-value products. Yet it is in fact being pillaged by overseas interests. The locals are being paid good money to do the hard work, so they keep their mouths shut and take the dollars with apparently little thought for the long term effects of corporate greed.

“Deputy Prime Minister Paula Bennett accepts that a mistake by a digger driver which caused widespread disruption to the nation’s aviation industry is “embarrassing”.

Energy Minister Judith Collins estimates the incident could cause “millions and millions of dollars” to the Auckland economy.

On Thursday, it was revealed that a digger once struck a key fuel pipe near Marsden Point, which by Sunday had caused a major leak that starved Auckland Airport of its main jet fuel supply.”

Well Collins should indeed be embarrassed, as SHE IS AT THE CENTRE OF THE SWAMP KAURI CONTROVERSY:

“In Parliament, Labour’s MP for Te Tai Tokerau, Kelvin Davis, asked the Government if ministers were “aware of reports that local wood manufacturers have been refused the opportunity to buy swamp kauri from Kauri Ruakaka mill, which was formerly called Oravida, and is allegedly involved in exporting raw swamp kauri?”

One of the directors of Oravida is National MP Judith Collins’ husband, David Wong-Tung.

Under further questioning in the House, Minister Nick Smith replied, “I thought the member (Kelvin Davis) was above getting involved in this kind of murk”.

Winston Peters then asked Dr Smith,: “Is he denying what is well known in Northland because people who are high up in Oravida are major donors to the National Party?”

Dr Smith replied that the law had been changed under Labour in 2004″

https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/national-party-donors-allegedly-involved-in-illegal-kauri-exports-6350968

“Northland conservationists say the logs are being illegally exported under the guise of carvings and the Government is doing nothing about it.The Far North Protection Society said that, despite their complaints, its members were still seeing massive logs dug from ancient wetlands, heading south on trucks to be sold overseas.”

https://www.radionz.co.nz/news/national/276363/minister-defends-trade-in-kauri-swamp-logs

 

I guess my point here, is that the NZ Government is now seeing the repercussions of it’s own greed and putting personal business interests ahead of the long term welfare of the country and it’s natural resources:

You reap what you sow!

An Economic Lesson for China and Russia, by Paul Craig Roberts

An Economic Lesson for China and Russia

Economic lesson Russia china
Is there anyone in Trump’s government who is not an imbecile?
After years of endless military threats against Russia—remember CIA deputy director Mike Morell saying on TV (Charlie Rose show) that the US should start killing Russians to give them a message, and Army Chief of Staff Mark Milley threatening “We’ll beat you harder than you have ever been beaten before”—now the US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin threatens China. If China doesn’t abide by Washington’s new sanctions on North Korea, Mnuchin said the US “will put additional sanctions on them [China] and prevent them from accessing the US and international dollar system.”
https://www.rt.com/usa/403118-usa-china-sanctions-north-korea/
Here is the broke US government $20 trillion in public debt, having to print money with which to buy its own bonds, threatening the second largest economy in the world, an economy on purchasing power parity terms that is larger than the US economy.Mnuchin threatens China
Take a moment to think about Mnuchin’s threat to China. How many US firms are located in China? It is not only Apple and Nike. Would sanctions on China mean that the US firms could not sell their Chinese made products in the US or anywhere outside China? Do you think the global US corporations would stand for this?
What if China responded by nationalizing all US factories and all Western owned banks in China and Hong Kong? China US economy

Mnuchin is like the imbecile Nikki Haley. He doesn’t know who he is threatening.
Consider Mnuchin’s threat to exclude China from the international dollar system. Nothing could do more harm to the US and more good to China. A huge amount of economic transactions would simply exit the dollar system, reducing its scope and importance. Most importantly, it would finally dawn on the Chinese and Russian governments that being a part of the dollar system is a massive liability with no benefits. Russia and China should years ago have created their own system. Being part of Washington’s system simply lets Washington make threats and impose sanctions.
The reason Russia and China are blind to this is that they foolishly sent students to the US to study economics. These students returned completely brainwashed with neoliberal economics, “junk economics” in Michael Hudson’s term. This American economics makes Russian and Chinese economists de facto American stooges. They support policies that serve Washington instead of their own countries.
If China and Russia want to be sovereign countries, they must pray that the imbecile Mnuchin does cut them off from the dollar system that exploits them. Then Russia and China will have to put in place their own system and learn real economics instead of propaganda posing as economics that serves Washington’s interest.
