    from yesterday –

    david – I queried the Speaker about the war Room.

    Thank you for your email. I can confirm that the relocation of Labour’s parliamentary staff into a large open plan office aligns with the functions that these parliamentary staff members perform in support the Labour Leaders Office. I am assured it is not related to election activities which you rightly point out should be kept separate.
    Thank you for writing to me on this matter.
    Yours sincerely
    Rt Hon David Carter
Speaker of the House of Representatives

    The lines between Parliament and party are very grey at times, but Labour have assured it is not election related. As much as it can be separated perhaps.

    _________

    Leader David Cunliffe’s chief of staff Matt McCarten has confirmed the party has recruited the Green Party’s political and media adviser, Clint Smith, to beef up selling its economic message.

    McCarten commands new-look war room
    Meanwhile, as it goes on to election-year war footing, Labour has tossed its MPs out of the caucus room so spin doctors, researchers and advisers can get out of their silos and share the big room.

    There they sit under the eye of McCarten whose desk is at the head of the class.
    The MPs will make do with a smaller room, one floor down.

    Cunliffe hones tactics in war room
    Matt McCarten devises plan to turn caucus room into large space where key staff can plot election strategy.
    http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11231103

    But, perhaps the apparent “blindness” of Speaker Rt Hon David Carter is indeed a more perceptive observation of the matter –

    Jones told Cunliffe and party president Moira Coatsworth on Tuesday morning that he had decided to go.
    But most of Labour’s caucus found out about it when TV3 broke the story at 6pm.
    … The party leadership appeared to be paralysed …
    So much for the “war room” in parliament staffed by the party’s top strategists and media people.
    :-)

    Still begs the question though, why is Speaker Carter allowing Labour’s self-confessed miss-use of the Labour Leaders Office?

    6pm tonight, and we’ll find out how the Budget has gone down, and whether Labour and Winston First’s smear tactics have done any lasting damage. Both One News and 3News are scheduled to report their polls.

    I’m guessing that National will be up slightly, and Labour down. If either poll has Labour in the 20′s, the War Room is not going to be a fun place tomorrow, and there will be more yelling from Mr Cunliffe’s Chief of Staff. It would also be nice to see a downward trend for Winston First, especially on the back of the disgraceful Jimmy Savile smear.

    Any predictions? Any goss?

Now the little meatsack hides away and refuses to comment. What a pathetic and incapable man him and his sidekick McCarten are.

    Whilst ‘interviewing’ Michael Woodhouse, she interrupted on more occasions than not – not only bloody rude but it actually prevented the Minister from answering the questions.

    It is long overdue Smalley was told she is not the interview and her own views aren’t important – she is just the mouthpiece asking the questions.

They are queue jumpers who have no respect for our laws, customs ,values and traditions.They are criminals who seek to abuse our welfare and working tax payers. They are Muslims who will not integrate.They are disease ridden and will burden our hospitals. They are fecund and will overburden our schools.

    Here’s my take on Tony Wall’s excellent boat people story

    Immigration, Customs and Police did an exercise a few years ago to practice for handling a mass arrival. Logistically NZ is ready to handle the first one, but politically we’re not ready at all. It’s not the first one that’s the problem, it’s the fact that when news of the first successful attempt gets back to Indonesia, we are going to be swamped.

    Processing these people takes years because none of them speak English, none of them have papers and all of them have to be treated in strict accordance with the UN Human Wights conventions which means incredibly expensive food, water and housing provisions for years and years and years while we try to confirm that x really does come from that mud hut in that village they said they did.

    And if we have a few thousand of these people each and every year, what is all of that going to cost? And this, BTW, is if these people, at the end of that process, are denied entry and sent back home, which we also have to pay for. If they are granted entry, then they go on the dole for the rest of their lives, they bring in their parents, their cousins, their siblings, their children and each and every one of them go through the school and health and housing systems that none of them have ever paid a single cent toward.

    Meanwhile the idiot lefties and their equally idiotic media morons will rush down to the beach and wring their hands and weep at the humanity of it all, as they pretend and breathlessly report to the country that instead of the truth (that this boatload is not in danger and is simply seeking a better life in a cushy country), instead of that truth, they will pretend that the whole lot of them are fleeing almost the precise same persecution the Jews suffered in Germany and the very least we can all do is to rush down to the beach like they are and cuddle the poor darlings and wrap them in masses of state-funded services. You watch people like Deborah Manning tie up the justice system for years with worthless arguments saying precisely that.

    Judge backs blogger’s fight against fraud
    ROB KIDD
    Last updated 05:00 25/05/2014

    A fraudster’s victim who fought back has won a landmark battle to name and shame the man who scammed him and dozens of others.

    Nearly two and a half years ago, Steve Taylor contracted Grant Norman King to build a sleepout for his elderly father behind the family home in West Auckland.

    Taylor paid three-quarters of the price – $23,500 – as a deposit. The sleepout was never built and the money was not returned.

    In a bid to get even, Taylor brought civil proceedings against King but when the cost of continuing the case became prohibitive, he took a different tack, setting up the website grantnormanking.com with the intention of warning others who might be drawn in.

    Within months other victims were clamouring to tell their stories and it was not long before Taylor built a comprehensive timeline of King’s offending.

    King then tried to turn the legal tables on Taylor by using the Harassment Act to sue Taylor and demand the website be taken down.

    Taylor was forced into Auckland District Court to defend himself.

    However, that was King’s mistake. “What he did was open up the opportunity for every other victim to tell their story, which was the very thing he was advocating against,” Taylor said.

    Affidavits in support of Taylor’s cause flooded in and he said it was surreal to be standing in court with the public gallery full of people backing him.

    In court Judge David Wilson sided with Taylor and said the website, with all its explosive accusations, could remain online. “It would be inappropriate if a man in Mr King’s position could close down postings of essentially factual material on the basis that it interferes with his commercial plans and deprives him of customers,” the judge said.

    “I accept Mr King is distressed by the postings but in my view that distress arises because he would prefer potential customers were unaware of his history and is not such as justifies the making of restraining orders.”

    Lawyer Madeleine Flannagan, who advised Taylor and has been the victim of online harassment herselft, said the judge’s decision showed free speech was alive and well.

    She said the unique nature of the case, setting a new precedent in harassment laws, meant it was already being used by media law professors at Auckland University.

    Taylor’s website also resulted in King being punished. Since setting up the website, Taylor said more than 70 victims had come forward, across a 32-year span, claiming losses of more than $3 million.

    As a result, the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment and the Ministry of Social Development began their own investigations, which ultimately led to eight convictions against King for fraud. According to Taylor’s timeline, the pattern of dishonesty started when King was convicted of receiving stolen vehicles in 1982.
    Ad Feedback

    Taylor vowed to continue his campaign against the scammer, whom he labelled “a classical sociopath”.

    King rejected the criticism of him and said he was now working as a salesman for a bike company, putting his criminal past behind him.

    “I have moved on and I do not deserve the sort of treatment that he’s [Taylor] given me,” he said. “I’ve been kicked from one end of the country to the other by this guy for two years with absolute bullshit mixed in with a little bit of fact and I’ve had enough of it.”

    He was defeated in the recent court hearing because of the “presentation of the case”, King said, but it was not his only way of hitting back at the blogger. “I’m not going to say what my next step is because I’m not going to telegraph that,” he said.

    Taylor was sceptical of King’s claim he had changed his ways. “I’ve been relentless in the pursuit of justice . . . I don’t think he’s going to stop, but neither am I,” he said.

    Oh yes there is.

    They are currently in a second country awaiting their opportunity to illegally enter a third country. The second country is the place where these poor oppressed and deprived and unprotected can claim asylum. (Like Ahmed Z. coulda/shoulda done)

    But third world Muslim shitholes like Malaysia and Indonesia aren’t good enough. Only the “rich” west will do with our indebted and broken but guaranteed welfarism.

    And in fact the staging countries they’re currently in won’t be second, the illegals will have variously been through many other shitholes on their way to milk me and you of your taxes.

    Western governments need to toughen up and protect their own citizens , borders and bottom lines.

    I was struck in Elliot Rodger’s killer video (above) how completely spoiled he was and the complete lack of self awareness. That maybe girls didn’t like him because he was a jerk, or behaved inappropriately, or needed to hone his social skills. Instead, he casts judgemental generalisations on everyone around him because he wasn’t able to get what HE wanted.

    Other men are “brutes” “hedonistic” “not gentlemen.”
    Girls are “sluts”
    Their crimes, “living a better life than me.” Chilling stuff.

    Not being acknowledged by them as some sort of super human with sex on demand, was their terrible crime. The chilling mocking laughter is weird. But of course, he continues to project himself as superior and a gentlemen and they (innocent people going about their study) are the criminals.

    Ironic then Elliot, that you then callously and premeditatedly “annihilated” anyone you could see, projecting your selfish inner sexual frustrations on to them and robbing them and their families of THEIR lives. Go the Police officers who gunned it out with this dangerous, selfish, self-absorbed little fiend who led a life of privilege and wealth. WAH WAH WAH.

    Transcript:

    .

    Hi Elliot Roger here
    Well this is my last video…
    It all has to come to this. tomorrow is the day of retribution. The day in which I will have my revenge against humanity, against all of you. For the last 8 years of my life ever since I’ve hit puberty, I’ve been forced to endure an existence of loneliness, rejection, and unfulfilled desires. All because girls have never been attracted to me. Girls gave there affection and sex and love to other men but never to me. Im 22 years old and Im still a virgin. I’ve never even kissed a girl. I’ve been through college for 2.5 years, More than that actually. And I am still a virgin. That has been very torturous. College is the time when everyone experiences those things such as sex and fun and pleasure. But in those years i have had to rot in loneliness. Its not fair. You girls have never been attracted to me. I don’t know why you girls aren’t attracted to me, but I will punish you all for it. It is an injustice, a crime, because I don’t know what you don’t see in me. I am the perfect guy. And yet you throw yourselves at all of these obnoxious men instead of me, the supreme gentleman. I will punish of all you for it. (laughs) On the day of retribution, I am going to enter the hottest sorority house of UCSB and I will slaughter every-single spoiled stuck up blonde slut I see inside there. All those girls that I have desired so much. They would have all rejected me and looked down upon me as an inferior man If i ever made a sexual advance towards them. While they throw themselves at these obnoxious brutes Ill take great pleasure in slaughtering all of you. You will finally see that I am , in truth, the superior one. The true alpha male. (laughs) yes. After I’ve annihilated every single girl in the sorority house I will take to the streets of isle la vista and slay every single person I see there. All those popular kids who lives such lives of hedonistic pleasure while I have had to rot in loneliness in all these years. They have all looked down upon me every time I tried to go out and join them. They all treated me like a mouse. Well now, I will be a god compared to you. You all be animals. You are animals and I will slaughter you like animals. Ill be a god. Exacting me retribution on all those who deserve it. You do deserve it. Just for the crime of living a better life than me. All you popular kids. You’ve never accepted me. And no you will all pay for it. And girls, all I’ve ever wanted was to love you and to be loved by you. I’ve wanted a girlfriend. I’ve wanted sex, I’ve wanted love, affection, adoration. You think I am unworthy of it. Thats a crime that can never be forgiven. If I cant have you, girls, I will destroy you. (laughs) You denied me a happy life. And in turn, I will deny all of you life. (laughs) Its only fair. I hate all of you. Humanity is a disgusting retched depraved species. If I had it in my power, I would stop at nothing to reduce everyone single one of you to mountains of skulls and rivers of blood. And rightfully so. You deserve to be annihilated. And Ill give that to you. You never showed me any mercy and so I will show you none. (laughs) You forced me to suffer all of my life and now I will make you all suffer. I’ve waited a long time for this. Ill give you exactly what you deserve, all of you. All you girls who rejected me and looked down upon me. You know, treated me like scum, while you gave your selves to other men. and all of you men for living a better life. all of you sexually active men. I hate you. I hate all of you. I cant wait to give you exactly what you deserve. Utter annihilation. (laughs) I am…..

    Aesthetically, it seemed like a version of a cut-scene in some dumb-arse computer game, where the villain explains “the plot”. Complete with ironic chuckles, etc.

    New Zealand’s foreign spy agency was found last year to have illegally spied on dozens of Kiwis.

    So, alarm bells should be screaming when the Prime Minister John Key acknowledged that same agency – the Government Communications Security Bureau – shares data that is likely used in the controversial United States drone strike programme.

    It follows revelations that some unmanned drone strikes have relied on intercepts by Australian satellite-tracking station Pine Gap.

    Key made his admission with a verbal shrug of the shoulders. He’s “comfortable” with the US programme. “For the most part, drone strikes have been an effective way of prosecuting people that are legitimate targets,” he said

    http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/opinion/10082207/Have-our-spies-signed-us-up-to-war-in-Yemen

    This is conspiracy in any man’s language. We are physcologically being prepared to accept spying on us as normal.

    J Key is a war criminal who calls killing Kiwi’s ‘prosecuting’.

    One day when drones are flying in NZ air space Kiwi’s will be “prosecuted’ with extreme prejudice by NZ govts in public places. Instead of cops killing innocent bystanders on the motorway, th einnocent will be targeted by drones and the means will be justified.

    The Fourth Reich is beckoning.

    fraudster’s victim who fought back has won a landmark battle to name and shame the man who scammed him and dozens of others.

    Nearly two and a half years ago, Steve Taylor contracted Grant Norman King to build a sleepout for his elderly father behind the family home in West Auckland.

    Taylor paid three-quarters of the price – $23,500 – as a deposit. The sleepout was never built and the money was not returned.

    In a bid to get even, Taylor brought civil proceedings against King but when the cost of continuing the case became prohibitive, he took a different tack, setting up the website grantnormanking.com with the intention of warning others who might be drawn in.

    Within months other victims were clamouring to tell their stories and it was not long before Taylor built a comprehensive timeline of King’s offending.

    King then tried to turn the legal tables on Taylor by using the Harassment Act to sue Taylor and demand the website be taken down.

    Taylor was forced into Auckland District Court to defend himself.

    However, that was King’s mistake. “What he did was open up the opportunity for every other victim to tell their story, which was the very thing he was advocating against,” Taylor said.

    Affidavits in support of Taylor’s cause flooded in and he said it was surreal to be standing in court with the public gallery full of people backing him.

    In court Judge David Wilson sided with Taylor and said the website, with all its explosive accusations, could remain online. “It would be inappropriate if a man in Mr King’s position could close down postings of essentially factual material on the basis that it interferes with his commercial plans and deprives him of customers,” the judge said.

    “I accept Mr King is distressed by the postings but in my view that distress arises because he would prefer potential customers were unaware of his history and is not such as justifies the making of restraining orders.”

    Lawyer Madeleine Flannagan, who advised Taylor and has been the victim of online harassment herselft, said the judge’s decision showed free speech was alive and well.

    Nope, no alarm bells are ringing for me at all. This is good news.

    “It follows revelations that some unmanned drone strikes have relied on intercepts by Australian satellite-tracking station Pine Gap.”

    So?

    “This is conspiracy in any man’s language.”

    Nope, it’s really not.

    “J Key is a war criminal who calls killing Kiwi’s ‘prosecuting’.”

    J Key is a hero for standing up to terrorists, even when they hide behind a piece of paper that claims they are “Kiwis.”

    RMA changes

    Last week the government confirmed it has abandoned its third round of Resource Management Act (RMA) amendments because Peter Dunne and the Maori Party have refused to support it. The proposed changes would have required decision-makers to balance environmental, social, economic and cultural values when considering resource management issues.

    The Maori Party claim the changes would undermine the traditional role of Maori. In a newspaper article in the Wanganui Chronicle, co-leader Tariana Turia wrote, “The connection to the resources and the environment was more than one of merely obtaining food for physical sustenance – it also reflected the spiritual connection with deities like Tane, Tangaroa and Rongo – the guardians of the forests, the waterways and cultivated foods for example.”

    Mr Dunne says the proposal to combine the existing principles section 6 (Matters of national importance) with section 7 (Other matters) into one non-hierarchical list in a new principles section 6 would weaken environmental protections and strengthen economic considerations. In other words, he wants to maintain the hierarchy where environmental protection has greater regard than the economic and social wellbeing of our communities.

    Unfortunately this is yet another example that shows MMP is a dog with fleas. Two parties that collectively represent some 2% of voters have stymied plans that would benefit the majority of the population and bring a sense of pragmatism to the RMA that is long overdue.

    The National Party has undertaken to resume the reforms should it have the numbers after the 20 September election. Indeed, reform of the RMA should be an election issue – it needs major reform to force councils to act sensibly as clearly many have shown an inability to do so.

    We hope reform will eventually put an end to the obscene racketeering by those within the RMA industry – and it is indeed a huge regulatory industry. Everyone from judges, commissioners, lawyers, consultants, environmental activists, and iwi are making fortunes by grafting off the enterprise of others – taking years to make decisions that should be made within days or weeks. We think history will eventually show the RMA to be ill-conceived legislation – but not before a generation of professionals has used its weaknesses to plunder and pillage!

    http://us3.campaign-archive1.com/?u=2fa05586dc63d75b8be850094&id=e1386b322d&e=b59791b0f1

    Two words spring to mind: ‘climate science.’

    Yes, it really is that bad.

    It’s behind a paywall but can be reached via a Google search:

    Google: “Data problems with Capital in the 21st Century”

    This link should work:

    http://lmgtfy.com/?q=%22+Data+problems+with+Capital+in+the+21st+Century%22

    Paul Krugman was among the first to credulously embrace this book and, before most people had even had a chance to read it, was crowing that the right seemed unable to refute it.

    He looks a right dick now doesn’t he. Mind you, does he actually have any credibility left to lose?

    This is the strategy behind the US’ involvement in Ukraine:
    http://blogdogcicle.blogspot.co.uk/2014/05/brzezinski-geostrategy-v-russia.html

    This is the response:
    From Putin: http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2014/05/23/363879/us-unipolar-vision-of-world-failed/
    And some analysis of what Putin was saying: http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2014/05/24/363947/us-attempts-to-dominate-world/

    And this is but one of the very likely consequences if the fools in the WH continue with the barking mad neo-con insanity which has so far brought us the smoking ruins of Iraq, Libya and Syria and which threatens to be applied to Ukraine, excepting Russia’s not going to allow it, and why should they.
    http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/strategist-warns-of-new-russian-threat-it-would-be-the-greatest-blackout-in-american-history_05182014

    And I have to say that if anyone thinks its just the neocons who are barking mad, they need to look at some of the Kiwibloggers who keep insisting Ukraine’s about fweedom and democwacy and poor widdle America is just twying to help but the big bad Wussian meanies won’t let them.

    Reid,

    Your basic problem is that you see omnipotent forces behind everything, pulling strings according some to fiendish master plan known only to the Illuminati, the Jews, and the shape-shifting aliens (there’s a lot of overlap amongst those groups, clearly) when in fact the world is run on an ad-hoc basis by self-interested short-termist politicians stumbling from one crisis to another.

    Let’s be clear: you are not the hero in some movie who has come into possession of a deadly secret. You are a weedy little twit with a deep-seated need to feel superior to others.

    “Dodgy Cop or not you are innocent until proven guilty…Imagine if everyone who was the subject of an ‘allegation’ lost their job straight away? ”

    That can and often does happen in private industry. It should also happen to cops and teachers and other public servants. I believe those cops who got done for rape and did about 8 years were on full pay for a long time. I do not think this right. However, any employer has to be very sure of their ground.

    Not a rogue poll, but a poll reflecting the budget affect, however, there are still a few months to go, and National would be making a huge mistake to get complacent. It would only take a nasty scandal regarding one of their top ministers to put them back into the area that makes it all uncertain. They’ve been to this level before and dropped it – the electorate is being somewhat finicky, which doesn’t make anything particularly certain at this stage. If I was a National party member, I would be urging caution rather than thinking the game was won.

    Maybe I was wrong, one feminist said that the term girl implied younger and weaker and thus was sexist discrimination (sexist when used by a man). But implied that the term could also be seen as age discrimination when used by an older female.

    It is suggestive of baby boomer age feminists having daddy issues, and a lingering sense of grievance that they were not seen as equals to their parents when they were becoming young adults.
