I hope the NZ Herald know what they’re doing… Bryce Edwards is quite the spiteful liar!

This from Martyn’s union and Kim Dotcom funded hobby blog:

We are losing the voice of Bryce Edwards in an election for a right wing troll who wanted Nicky Hager’s address published so he would be harmed and another right wing troll who pretends to be a Labour supporter. 

It’s interesting to see that even Bryce Edwards isn’t good enough for the NZ Herald.   His continuous claims to be non-partisan are laughable and demonstrably untrue.

But that’s ok.

What the Herald should really worry about is that they are now on the Doc’s shit list.   Read more »

If explaining is losing, I’ll take this one on the chin

As people have observed, I’m not only relaxed, I’m quite enjoying myself.   People who know me will understand that I love dirty politics more than anyone else.   And I fully understand people won’t believe this, but I have boundaries and ethics.

They may not be yours, but they are there.

What has been stolen contains legally, politically, medically and journalistically privileged material.

And here’s the kicker:  most of it isn’t about me.   Read more »

BREAKING: KIM DOTCOM PAYMASTER FOR HACKER

We all know by now that I had my emails hacked in February.

We also know that David Farrar has had his intellectual property stolen, and that Mark Mitchell had his personal emails hacked and his office broken into.

What I can also now reveal is that Tony Lentino, the businessman who formerly financially  supported Kim Dotcom also had his office broken into.

On top of that Travis who works for the blog was also hacked along with another media person who has been a vocal critic of Kim Dotcom.

Until now we haven’t had the proof, only a bunch of dots to join but we now have the complete picture.

Nicky Hager this morning admitted on Q+A that he didn’t have the full emails, that they were filtered as we suspected. Nicky Hager has become the latest victim of the puppet master.

Do I feel sympathy for him? Not one bit. He let his politics blinker his analysis and as a result it has destroyed his journalism.

Earlier today I received a call from Wayne Tempero.

He is Dotcom’s former personal protection manager and he was concerned.

Tempero was contacting me despite the early hour in Israel concerned about something that transpired on 17 June this year.

He had only now worked out what was meant by a text conversation he had with Dotcom on that date.

He had watched this week unfold and couldn’t believe what he had seen. Then he remembered the texts.

Remember just two days ago we released a text message from Kim Dotcom where he implied he was the one responsible. That text was sent to  Wayne Tempero.

We can now reveal that there was an earlier text conversation in June. Here are screenshots of the text messages.

Time For Dotcom To Take Off The Onesie And Reveal All

Having this sort of order against your client is a nightmare.  It matters not so much when the client isn’t living in that jurisdiction but when he is trapped from leaving it is game over time.  With only an appeal in sight.

On one hand the billable hours record for the year are about to be smashed, but on the other hand you have to explain to a mad German whinging online about his rights that he has to actually tell you the truth now about his asset base.  Definitely time to convene at a bar for a think.

“Legally and beneficially owned” is a rather wide definition and it is an extremely wide order and definitely a “fishing expedition”.

Given his break up with Mona any assets in her name are half owned by him as well.  It will be interesting to see how his lawyers can squeeze around that.

Wide fishing expedition orders like this are very much common place in offshore jurisdictions and I have seen many in the past few years.  Dotcom is not special nor is he being picked on, it is happening everywhere.

Lawyers won’t get much love on appeal arguing they are too wide when it comes to a sophisticated subject who has operated offshore for years from many locations.  Your only advice to the client is to be truthful as their pants are about to be removed.    Read more »

One of the problems: Our suppression laws

(Unless you have read the first and second posts in this three parter, you won’t have had the stage set for this final article.)

Rodney Hide’s article is mostly about name suppression, and how it doesn’t service justice

I have reluctantly concluded that New Zealand does suffer a rape culture.

It’s not an “all men are rapists” and “I am sorry for being a man” type of thing. Rather, it’s the way men can commit sex crimes and get away with it. The system works to protect the privileged and powerful.

My eyes were opened after my column last week. I had called on National MP Maggie Barry to use Parliamentary privilege to break the suppression order protecting a “prominent” New Zealander.

The police had charged him with “indecent assault” but the sex predator pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of “indecent act with intent to insult or offend”.

“Indecent assault” is a strike offence; it’s a serious charge.

Judge David Saunders discharged the sex attacker without conviction and gave him name suppression. We can’t report who he is. By way of explanation, the judge said the predator had “carried a bit of a cross” since the charges were laid.

You know Rodney, you and I are both itching to kick this sexual assaulting ratbag to touch.  But due to my (personally costly) hard work, the penalties for breaching suppression are no longer a maximum $1000 fine per incident.   It has increased to $100,000 – and that’s not something I can afford to do again to bring about change.

Tania Billingsley and the Green and Rape Crisis fingerprints

The Green Party’s Jan Logie has denied any association with Tania Billingsley and only came into contact with the matter recently, due to the Malaysian fake rape incident.

Observers of the story may have seen that Tania has strong links to Wellington Rape Crisis, but not because of the Malaysian event.  Her association goes back some time before that.

The woman that leads Wellington Rape Crisis is ‘the girl with the pink hair’ (this is like a movie script), Tabby Besley.

Turns out that Tabby and Tarn go way back.  Waaaaay back.  They already knew each other in Nelson, when Tabby attended Nayland College.  Nayland College is one of Nelson’s way-out-there colleges.  Once the school bell rings, it looks like the local youth prostitution convention breaks up.  But although I digress, it does paint the picture.

Tarn and Tabby knew each other at least since 2011, and even then, they were active participants in Queer / womans rights issues   Read more »

Cunliffe tells man seeking assistance – ‘NO DIRT, no help’

by Stephen Cook

Under-fire Labour leader David Cunliffe is in the thick of more controversy – this time accused of refusing to help an Auckland man with a delicate ACC matter unless he agreed to ‘dish the dirt’ on a senior Cabinet minister.

Just weeks after his credibility took a hit after the Donghua Liu affair and the whole ‘I’m sorry for being a man ‘ saga, Cunliffe has now emerged as the central figure in a messy ‘bribery scandal’.

For the past three years former senior RadioWorks executive Mike Rowley has maintained a dignified silence about what he claims was an attempt by Cunliffe to ‘bribe’ him for information about the ‘relationship’ between the Exclusive Brethren and Communications Minister Steven Joyce.

Joyce used to own Radioworks and would often come into contact with Rowley.

Rowley says when he approached Cunliffe three years ago about the role ACC allegedly played in the suicide of a rape victim, the Labour leader indicated he would be willing to look into the case – but for a price.

In return for his help, Rowley would have to ‘dish the dirt’ on Joyce’s relationship with the Exclusive Brethren, the secretive religious group who emerged from obscurity during the  2005 election campaign.

“No dirt, no help. That was the clear message I got,” said Rowley.   Read more »

Tania Billingsley, in her own words

This “essay” is published at TV3.  It is somewhat tl;dr, but I think it is worth having a look at.  I’ve taken the liberty to highlight certain passages to show that this lady has an agenda beyond what happened to her when a Malaysian diplomat allegedly assaulted her.  And I’ve inserted comments.  I have not omitted, edited or moved any of her writing around.

Since my assault I feel that people have been assuming that my idea of justice is to have Rizalman found guilty in a New Zealand court. While it is an important part of justice being done, my main reason for wanting this is not for my own  sense of satisfaction but to keep other women safe.

Your main reason for having the diplomat brought to New Zealand is to keep other women safe?

I don’t want anyone to have to go through what I have gone through. And if my idea of justice means ensuring the safety of women and others, then it cannot stop at the prosecution of this man.

Why not?  It is that man that allegedly did it.  Not me.  Not my neighbour.  Not even Duncan Garner or Russel Norman for that matter.   Read more »
