Personal message from Ambassador to President, not for normal distribution

OPERATION DIVIDE AND RULE

Mr President

Can I thank you personally for agreeing to my recommendation that New Zealand be exempted from the sanctions that were imposed yesterday.  This will drive a useful wedge between the 5 eyes nations and cause some to question further whether New Zealand should remain part of the club.

Our strategy on the ground here is working well.  The support provided years ago to Comrade Kim to set up his internet piracy operation is paying enormous dividends.  As you can see from this video his funding of our Comrades in the New Zealand Communist movement has New Zealand on the cusp of revolution and the overthrow of the old Zionist controlled order is at hand.

Boris Yaro of the Los Angeles Times took this historic image in the kitchen of the Ambassador Hotel when the senator and presidential hopeful Robert Kennedy was shot by Sirhan Sirhan on 5 June 1968. The photographer was so close to the action that he was able to pick up Sirhan's gun while it was still warm.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention outfitted a Gulfstream jet with an isolation pod designed and built by the U.S. Defense Department, the CDC and a private company. The pod, officially called an Aeromedical Biological Containment System, is a portable, tent like device that ensures the flight crew and others on the flight remain safe from an infectious disease.

Hamas breaks another ceasefire

Statement from the Office of the Prime Minister of Israel:

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke this afternoon with US Secretary of State John Kerry and told him that despite his joint statement with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, according to which assurances had been received from Hamas and the other terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip regarding a ceasefire from 08:00 this morning, the Palestinians had unilaterally and grossly violated the humanitarian ceasefire and attacked our soldiers after 09:00.

As a result of this attack, two IDF soldiers were killed and another soldier is suspected to have been abducted; this was after the ceasefire had taken effect.

Prime Minister Netanyahu told US Secretary of State Kerry that Hamas and the other terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip will bear the consequences of their actions and that Israel would take all necessary steps against those who call for our destruction and perpetrate terrorism against our citizens.

If Kim DotCom would do a runner from New Zealand, how would he do it?

kim-dot-com-top

Let’s do a bit of crowd-sourcing.

If Kim DotCom would do a runner from New Zealand, how would he do it?

I doubt he would go to South America, he seems to have a preference for the Asian lifestyle (girls etc), and its closer. Though I am told that after getting extradited from Thailand and having to do a runner from the Philippines over unpaid gambling debts that he is frightened of Asia.  Read more »

Media trust? Not any time soon

Where America goes we do follow.

Gallup has released research that shows Americans no longer trust their news media.

This is what happens when media cease telling the news and start mounting campaigns, mostly for left wing causes.

Americans’ faith in each of three major news media platforms — television news, newspapers, and news on the Internet — is at or tied with record lows in Gallup’s long-standing confidence in institutions trend. This continues a decades-long decline in the share of Americans saying they have “a great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in newspapers or TV news, while trust in Internet news remains low since the one prior measure in 1999.

These results are from a Gallup poll conducted June 5-8.The three major sources of news ranked in the bottom third of 17 different U.S. institutions measured in the poll.

Confidence in newspapers has declined by more than half since its 1979 peak of 51%, while TV news has seen confidence ebb from its high of 46% in 1993, the first year that Gallup asked this question. Gallup’s only previous measure of Internet news was in 1999, when confidence was 21%, little different from today.
