If you have been banned from The Standard – they are offering an amnesty, allowing anyone who has been banned to comment again there…
…as long as you comply with lprent’s behaviour regime. Despite the collective trying to open up debate lnapoleon quickly made it clear he’s not about to be nice or balanced on The Standard Farm.
Then we let people back on and see if they have improved their behaviour.
If they repeat the behaviour(s) that got them banned last time then they wind up with a short sharp and preferably quite humiliating bounce. Of course there will be a few fools who take it as a badge of honour to be banned from TS – the ones who congregate at whaleoil or the sewer to display their badge of stupid behaviour and lie about why they banned.
But many will have learnt to not repeat dumb behaviours. The key to doing it is when there is time to have a moderator solidly available to deal with the usual idiots who fail to learn from their past foolishness.
But – duggledog – they wouldnt be allowed to administer the swift kick up the arse that worked so well. Short sharp lesson and no clogging up the courts and the social services in worthless attempts to re-educate thses idiots.
And the costs we (ie: the taxpayer) now have is enormous – and as we all know – it doesnt work.
Morgan Godfery has coined a new phrase; Winstonism. And to be able to define the complexity of Rt. Hon. Winston Peters in less that 140 characters as he has done is no mean feat; it’s quite possibly the best description of him that I’ve seen, with everything Peters espouses based on a myth. Here’s hoping that this one will stick!
KS – “Winstonism”, also interchangeable with “narcissism”. Have a look at the non-entities he manages to drag into parliament on his coattails. They will do as Winston says or they’re gone from the party.
It has been going on for some time. It is just now escalating..There is and has been for a long time a lot of tension between China and Japan..Another area hotting up but not rec’g much attention is the China/US battle over the Pacific. Well at least the Chinese won’t need to teach the Fijians any torture methods..Does anyone have the facts on Fiji’s current military capability? Is it greater than NZ’s? Chinese money buys a lot of toys.
Our attorneys asked the Supreme Court to consider lifting the �stay� on our injunction against Section 1021 and indefinite detention. As you�ll recall, we won our lawsuit last September and were granted a worldwide injunction against this provision � ensuring people could not be indefinitely detained under the sweeping and unchecked scope of the NDAA.
Despite having issued a signing statement in January of 2012 claiming he would not use these powers against American citizens, Obama immediately appealed Judge Forrest�s ruling and our win, then went further and asked her to grant a stay on the injunction, essentially �lifting� that injunction. She refused.
Next, the DOJ attorneys went to the second circuit court and asked them to lift the stay as well, claiming �irreparable harm� would be incurred by the US if the government did not have these unchecked powers. The second circuit court judges granted their request and put a stay on our injunction.
We applied to both Justice Ginsberg (who said no) and Justice Scalia (who said yes) to convene a conference of the entire Supreme Court to consider lifting that stay and restoring our injunction. They told us yesterday that they will not lift the stay � indefinite detention under the NDAA stands.
For those who don’t think the Illuminati exists, educate yourself, because they do and the evidence is right in front of you in plain sight all the time. All you need to do is know what you’re looking at. For example Madonna’s half-time 2011 superbowl show was full of it, the fashion magazines are full of it, etc. And here’s a new doll line from Mattell aimed at girls 0-10 years that’s also full of it.
And noting Obama said yesterday he reckons Iran is around a year away from a nuke, gee, I wonder who he’s been talking to?
Joana. I think this is something different, related to Kim Jong-un, and the threat of ballistic capability moves it in to a whole new league. The China/Japan thing over the shared islands is a storm in a teacup, a few nationalistic hotheads, but these two nations will not come to blows over this. They have too much to lose.
Watch for a statement by China over next week re NK.
International Arrest Warrant issued against Pope Francis I, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, for Crimes against Humanity and Child Trafficking
Italians and others are empowered to apprehend the new Pontiff
The same Common Law Court that tried and sentenced his predecessor and other church and state officials has today issued an Arrest Warrant against the first Jesuit Pope in history, Jorge Mario Bergoglio.
A signed and sealed copy of the Warrant is attached, and the text follows.
The Argentinian prelate assumed criminal liability and became subject to immediate arrest by occupying the Papal seat in the wake of the conviction of the Vatican as a criminal organization on February 25, 2013.
Bergoglio’s role in the death of Argentinian citizens during that country’s “Dirty War” and in the trafficking of the children of political prisoners also compelled the International Common Law Court of Justice to issue the Warrant today, which is one year in duration.
Italian and Argentinian citizens, and any man or woman, are authorized by the Warrant to be involved in Bergoglio’s public detaining.
“The Pope is the head of a predatory power that is waging an undeclared, centuries-old war against the entire non-Catholic world” commented ITCCS Field Secretary Kevin Annett today in Vancouver, where he delivered a copy of the Arrest Warrant to the Catholic Archdiocese office.
“Since we and our children are being assaulted by a corporation that is a law unto itself, we have the right to defend ourselves and detain or stop altogether those responsible, as in any war”.
A Public Proclamation is being read out in twenty eight countries this week by ITCCS members, publicly banning those church and state officials who cannot be immediately arrested under these Warrants.
Citizens are encouraged to download and use the attached Warrant.
Issued by ITCCS Central Office
15 March, 2013
I think this has posted before but some people didn’t get it the first time because they still talk as if they really do think the US really still is the land of the free and the home of the brave and they ignore all the myriad signs to the contrary. This transformation has happened in front of everyone’s very eyes and while some of us have noticed most haven’t, preferring instead to concentrate on the media-induced hallucination that everything’s just fine and dandy and it’s all just a bunch of stuff that happened. And when something major does happen, like the ‘war on terror’ it’s simply a reaction to nothing at all, because ‘they hate our fweedom.’ And some people really do believe it really does work like that.
“Citizens are encouraged to download and use the attached Warrant.”
Hinamanu- I have downloaded my copy of that dubious Internet ‘Arrest Warrant’ and am booking my flights to Rome as we speak. You reckon the Pope will come to the door? Or should I sneak into St Peters the back way to nab him?
King Obama went to a GOP function and was offered delicious food but declined because he wasn’t accompanied by his “taster”.
WASHINGTON — Following President Obama’s lunch meeting with Senate Republicans on Capitol Hill, Maine Republican Senator Susan Collins described the food served and said the president was not able to eat since his “taster” was not present.
“Unfortunately, you know, the president can’t,” said Collins when asked if Obama ate at the lunch meeting.
“He looked longingly at it,” Collins continued. “He honestly did look longingly at it, but apparently he has to have essentially a taster, and I pointed out to him that we were all tasters for him, that if the food had been poisoned all of us would have keeled over so, but he did look longingly at it and he remarked that we have far better food than the Democrats do, and I said that was because I was hosting.”
According to a 2009 AFP report, the U.S. Secret Service has “always refused to confirm that US presidents travel with a food ‘taster’, in line with their policy of discretion on all security related issues.”
9/11 – The New Hiroshima/Where Did the Towers Go? – Dr Judy Wood Ph.D.
Dr. Judy Wood received her B.S. (Civil Engineering, 1981) (Structural Engineering), M.S. (Engineering Mechanics (Applied Physics), 1983), and Ph.D. (Materials Engineering Science, 1992) from the Department of Engineering Science and Mechanics at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in Blacksburg, Virginia.
Dr. Judy Wood has been researching 9/11 since 2001 and has already filed several law suits against NIST’s contractors for science fraud, and legal requests that NIST’s fraudulent data gets reexamined? Dr. Judy Wood has received more than one threat due to the research she has done and the evidence she has gathered, and one of her students was also murdered in 2006. Surprisingly, Dr. Judy Wood is the only 9/11 researcher who has submitted evidence to the courts in pursuit of the truth.
I. In 2007, Dr. Judy Wood filed several legal cases against the corporations NIST had contracted to conduct the 9/11 “investigations”, many of which are military / defense / weapons organizations involved in Directed Energy research (huge conflict-of-interest). The filings in these legal cases included Requests For Corrections (RFC) based on the Data Quality Act, and Qui Tam whistle-blower cases. One of her legal cases made it all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court in October of 2009. She has been actively pursuing 9/11 Truth with her lawyer, despite the lack of support she has received from Dr. Steven Jones and other members of the 9/11 Truth community. The legal documents from her court cases can be viewed at the following links:
BREAKING: US DEPLOYS MISSILES In Response To N Korea’s Threats
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel will announce Friday that the U.S. is deploying 14 new ground-based missile interceptors, probably in Alaska, defense officials told NBC News.
The officials didn’t say specifically why the interceptors were being deployed, but the announcement comes as North Korea has been making bellicose threats to void the armistice that ended the Korean War and launch a nuclear attack on the U.S.
The U.S. and South Korea began annual military drills this week despite the North Korean threats.
Hagel will make the announcement at a briefing scheduled for 3 p.m. ET, the officials said.
Today’s Federal Reserve owners are permitted by Law to purchase $100 bills for the cost of labor and materials, which is about 4 cents each. Every other citizen in our country has to work for money. The banks use the bills to take control of all major corporations using loans. The FED can even just type numbers into a computer and it becomes money to loan. The FED operation is secret.
“You are a den of vipers and thieves. I intend to rout you out, and by the grace of the Eternal God, will rout you out.”
President Jackson did rout them out and therefore, became a target for assassination.
“I am one of those who do not believe that a national debt is a national blessing, but rather a curse to a republic; inasmuch as it is calculated to raise around the administration a moneyed aristocracy dangerous to the liberties of the country.”
Today’s national debt if a privately owned bank swindle of the debt based monetary system. President Abe Lincoln avoided this by using debt free Treasury Notes called Greenbacks. See http://www.lincolnamendment.net This amendment would remove the national debt.
“Gentlemen, I have had men watching you for a long time and I am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter, I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves”
Today the Federal Reserve is working to destroy the middle class around the world and drive them into poverty. In his day Jackson worked to save the nation from this kind of operation. Today this responsibility should be assumed by state representatives in all 50 states. Instead today the government cuts benefits to the nation and gives billions to to “bail-out” the banks which is the Globalists agenda.
“If Congress has the right under the Constitution to issue paper money, it was given to be used by themselves, not to be delegated to individuals or corporations.”
Congress does not have this right. But the Lincoln Amendment would change this and put this power into the hands of the state legislatures. The Federal Reserve is a privately owned bank that Jackson would oppose.
On January the 17th, 32-year-old Belgium MP Laurent Louis, considered one of the most controversial and demonized national political figures, delivered the most powerful truth ever told in a political arena.
First, he explained why he voted against the Belgian support to war in Mali, that it was based on lies and rooted in neo-colonialism. Then he expressed his disgust and wrath against the criminal foreign policies of the Western elite and its submission to foreign financial and interest groups, before scolding his colleagues who voted for interventionist war with “fuck you’s”. Finally, he says that the war on terror is a lie and that 9/11 was a false flag to justify aggressive military action in the Muslim world.
The socialist left are quite torn and inconsistent in their rhetoric!
“Pro-austerity was all the rage among radicals pre-2008. I still remember a 2006 March Against Climate Change, the most depressing demo I’ve ever been on, at which a mishmash of middle-class mums, concerned commentators and old Leftists demanded greater restrictions on people’s holidaymaking and consumerist habits, all in the name of ‘saving the planet’.”
Cabinet minister and former head prefect at St Patrick’s College in Wellington Chris Finlayson will represent the Government at the inauguration mass of Pope Francis I in Rome on March 19.
Mr Finlayson is a regular Sunday mass attendee at St Mary of the Angels Church in Boulcott St.
He described the new pope’s inaugural mass as a momentous occasion for the worldwide Catholic community – including Catholics in New Zealand.
“On behalf of the Government, I wish him the best for his term of office and congratulate the people of Argentina on a hugely significant day in the history of that country,” said Mr Finlayson.
Mr Finlayson will depart New Zealand for Rome this weekend, and will return next Thursday.
Not sure what others think but as a non catholic taxpayer (and not interested in any other fancy deity), I wonder how the Govt. can justify this expense.
It would be interesting to hear what the rational is for sending Findlayson or for that matter any person. Its is like so many Govt. actions not a good use of funds stolen from the taxpayer.
If the Catholics want someone to go then they should fund it.
Why should the rest of us?
Fisani, perhaps you want to add this to your list of non events of earlier today.
EUROZONE leaders and the IMF today announced an unprecedented levy on all deposits in Cypriot banks as the sting in the tail of a 10-billion-euro bailout for the near-bankrupt government in Nicosia.
Intended to apply to everyone from pensioners to Russian oligarchs alleged to have billions stashed away in what officials say is a bloated Cypriot banking sector, the “stability levy” immediately raised a flood of concerns among finance experts over a possible bank run in bigger eurozone economies, where fragile public finances are also under scrutiny.
Dutch Finance Minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem, after chairing some 10 hours of talks to strike the deal with counterparts including International Monetary Fund head Christine Lagarde and the European Central Bank’s Mario Draghi, said the “upfront, one-off” tax is expected to raise 5.8 billion euros ($7.25 billion) on top of the loans still to be finalised by eurozone parliaments.

The levy will see deposits of more than 100,000 euros in Cypriot banks hit with a 9.9 percent charge when lenders re-open their doors on Tuesday after a scheduled bank holiday on Monday. Under that threshold and the levy drops to 6.75 percent.
Top ECB official Joerg Assmussen said the only way to drive down what was originally requested as a 17-billion-euro rescue was to claw back money from the Cypriot banking sector, which is estimated to hold assets worth five times the country’s economic output.
Years ago a mate of mine took up with a Welsh chick on a working holiday in NZ JB….bloody good sort she was. She could drink most men under the table but when she started to get a bit pissed her accent got stronger & stronger until no one had a hope in hell of knowing what she was on about.
The general consensus was that she sounded like someone chundering into a two gallon galvanised bucket.
Myfanwy Evans, of Swansea, added: “I’m not having that! We’ll find these beautiful people and bash their faces in so they’re as ugly as us.”
A spokeswoman for BeautifulPeople.com said the Welsh people may have been further disadvantaging themselves when applying to the site by including pictures of themselves grouped with their equally visually-offensive Welsh friends.
Afraid not Davinci…..he seems to have gone to ground. Information to hand indicates that the last confirmed sighting of the Great Blogger was when he was spotted two weeks ago dressed as Rambo, waiting at a bus stop on the corner of Cameron Rd & 15th Ave.
So I’m watching Hayden Panettiere on Jimmy Fallon here in No Cal. Suddenly I get the sheep voice over in a Kiwi accent that mirrors some previous, heh, shall we say,” hell experiences”. Lucky moi. #Brazilianwax
I have had a few long term rough girl friends but never hooked up with a sheep. I guess the sight of me wearing gum boots and pushing a ewe from behind down a steep hill scares them off. Any suggestions on how to improve my strike rate ?
Thanks. At first I was wearing chest high waders and could not work out why I was missing the objective. Even Velcro gloves let me down.
I will try sheep nuts and a good heading dog. Knee high gum boots 3 sizes too big should also help as long as Mavis the ewe doesn’t kick too hard. A mate reckons a good goat is worth consideration as long as you dont want to kiss it. Bad breath !!
