    First it’s the disappearing DPF (about whom we aren’t allowed to comment), and then it’s the delayed General Debate. The Emperor Penguin of the Blogosphere is losing his feathers…

    The crystal skull was posed as an Aztec artifact, but seems to have been part of a fraud. The idea that the fraud is now an Atlantis artifact is the conspiracy theory about the existent object.

    The story posted up earlier about gobekli-tepe is more real. And it has a part in overturning theories that settlement derived from cultivated crop farming – instead settlement may have preceded farming. Then this settlement farming spread.

    If you see this, Yeah mate, it certainly changes peoples views.

    tedbear, if an non-maori does it, the state will prosecutes them. There are regulations around it all. Essentially Maori have a state enforced commercial monopoly.

    Then I suggest Kea, the regulations need an amendment.

    In case you missed the thread yesterday – BREAKING –

    More proof that Obama is not who he claims to be.

    A skip tracer trying to trace someone evading a debt came up with Michelle Obama and her Social Security number and previous address (on a side search). Barrack Obama’s name was also there (associated with Michelle) and, low and behold, his Social Security number has an alias – someone sharing the same number who was born in 1890 called Harrison Bounel. The skip tracer typed in the number again, and sure enough, both names came up. This man Obama, whoever he is, has been created from whole cloth.

    The tracer said it it usually evidence of identity theft.

    Maybe his journey to the dark side is complete?

    Eddie kicked off another campaign, and then IrishBill hands out bans to anyone questioning his obviously unsubstantiated accusations. They certainly weren’t justified, maybe just another excuse.

    This follows a similar stir and ban pattern as November’s ‘Cunliffe coup’, also launched a week out from a major Labour event and Shearer speech. Stock up on popcorn.

    Really?

    How peculiar.

    Maybe you should change the sites you read Azeroph because I think you’ve been garden pathed on this issue. I know a little about Atlantis and a little about the crystal skull and while there may be an alleged linkage, I’ve never come across it and I’ve read a lot about what some ignorantly and misinformedly call “conspiracy theories.” Perhaps you’ve been reading the wrong ones all along Azeroph. You wouldn’t be alone.

    @PG,

    I would guess that IrishBill is also Bill O’Drees who comments here on the Labour leadership threads (he now comments as plain “Bill” it would seem.)

    He is such a Cunliffe adherent and sycophant, I imagine that Cunliffe has to call the Fire Service to have him removed whenever he [Cunliffe] comes to a sudden halt.

    No surprise then that IrishBill bans those who do not prostrate themselves before the great Cunners

    But I enjoy Reid’s posts and hopes he keeps it up. He may spot something (one day) that others have missed.

    So birth certificates, short and long and the Hawaii newspaper anouncement of his birth – the existence of his mother and life with her and the grandparents are all what part of … some conspiracy … to deny his real birth outside of the USA as someone else?

    The inmates are in charge again. This on Yahoo News:

    “Maori now have a special place in Antarctica.

    At a ceremony in sub zero temperatures on the ice this morning Ngai Tahu leader Sir Mark Solomon unveiled a totara carving or pouwhenua. It stands behind the iconic Scott Base sign, which has also been given a new Maori look.
    Sir Mark says he’s loving his time on the ice.”

    What now, do they own the snow and ice there too? I hope I didn’t pay for his fare down there, or did he arrive by waka so his claim will appear more genuine.

    It has nothing to do with a persons knowledge about the skull, it’s about putting to rest suspicion otherwise it’s suspect and since it is a physical object it can be tested with better more modern techniques and if it turns up to be the real deal then think of the amount of media coverage it will get and the new acolytes to the thousands of waiting energy field QM adherents. I’m not joking they’re out there.

    We can’t test Atlantis but one theory I do like is that it was located in the Altiplano in South America.

    A link to the evidence of the Obama birth in Hawaii.

    http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/10/are_obamas_1961_newspaper_birth_announcements_fake.html

    PS The 2 origins to the story appear to be the claim that John McCain was not American born (tit for tat party politics) and the Obama pose in his early political career as someone making it in America. Thus the emphasis on a Kenyan father and life in Indonesia in the background story.

    One wonders if the Aucklander hosting this blog might one day have similar problems.

    Who would want to get involved in the gun control debate in America, but…

    On the day the pro-gun rights rallies were being held across the country, five people were wounded in accidents at three gun shows.

    Three people were hurt when a 12-gauge shotgun discharged as its owner opened its case at the entrance to a show in North Carolina. Two others were wounded when guns went off accidentally at gun shows in Ohio and Indiana. None of the day’s injuries was life-threatening.

    Really? How many people were injured in vehicle accidents across America over the same period? Is that somehow newsworthy justification for restricting access to cars?

    People can argue for or against according to their position, but if the gun control supporters are going to try to bolster their argument with ‘news’ such as this then they are heading for another defeat.

    One suspects the real target of the birther movement is opposition to immigration law reform – because they want to prevent the granting of citizenship to “illegals”. It’s a just a front for the old South and the attempt to deny voting rights to those not like themselves.
