Pimping the Peonage part three

Peonage is another word for servitude and subjugation. We have always had a Pimping the Poor series and this is part three of my Pimping the Peonage series given the number of articles promoting the Muslim culture subjugating women in our New Zealand media.

Call off the pitchforks and the flaming torches; a small group of women from a barbaric cult have done something nice.

Using the media to soft-soap the image of a gang or cult is not new. When I lived in Kawerau the Mongrel mob was the main gang there. I saw them out in public every single day, wearing their gang insignia and intimidating everyone they saw with their dirty and menacing appearance.

Colin Craig’s $550,000 vs Dotcom’s Millions

It will be interesting to see the mandatory Party Return to be submitted to the electoral commission for the Internet Party, and how much money Kim Dotcom is really throwing into his Cult Party. ?Colin Graig has stumped up with just over half a mil.

Conservative Party leader Colin Craig has donated more than half a million dollars towards his party’s war chest this week alone, party returns show.

According to the Electoral Commission website, Craig donated $550,000 to his party on Tuesday – that’s on top of a $36,000 donation made by him on February 28.

The wealthy property developer had also made four donations to the party between October and January, ranging between $10,000 and $50,000.

In October he gave the party $50,000, in November $10,000 and in December a further $20,000.

Craig added another $45,000 to the tally in January, which was used to cover the cost of a billboard campaign.

Other donations were added to cover the cost of new staff.

It was widely reported Craig funded the party’s 2011 election campaign himself.

Let’s face it. ?These aren’t political parties, are they? ?They are mere play things by people who have the cash to carry it off. ? Read more »

The Internet Party back peddling has started before it even exists

kjkhk

Kim does love people in black uniforms, doesn’t he?

Ah, it didn’t take long. ?The Internet Party is trying to distance itself from the omnishambles that is Dotcom

The launch is scheduled for this afternoon, and Mr Dotcom won’t be personally involved.

Mr Kumar is trying to distance the party from the internet tycoon, his upcoming extradition hearing and his various other legal issues. ? Read more »

Hosking on the Cult of Dotcom

Newstalk ZB’s Mike Hosking can’t see the Internet Party get any traction…

…unless it banks on the cult status of the man bank rolling it

?to get into parliament you need a cause. The Maori Party had the seabed and foreshore, Hone Harawira post the Maori Party had anger from the disaffected of the north. There are pockets of voters outside the mainstream that at any given time if the message is right can be rallied. The Greens, the Christians, the far right, the far left. All the rest of us are in the middle going back and forward between the main players. ? Read more »

Whoop, Whoop, pull up

? Sunday Star Times

Brian Tamaki is in danger of becoming like Jim Jones. Destiny Church has?already?morphed into a cult, now all they need is the compound and the mass suicide:

Bishop Brian Tamaki has raised the stakes with his Destiny Church followers, exhorting them to leave behind houses, jobs ? even family members ? to join him at a “City of God” he is building in South Auckland.

At the church’s annual conference in Rotorua on Friday night, Tamaki spent his entire two-hour sermon talking about how God had told him to build the city and why his followers had to lose their “parochialism” towards their home areas, even if it meant leaving behind loved ones.

Cult expert Mark Vrankovich said the speech was designed to “soften up” Tamaki’s followers and the real pressure to move to South Auckland would come with one-on-one sessions with local pastors.

“Saying that the church family is more important than your physical family, that you must go with the spiritual family, is a classic cult idea. This will put great pressure on families and break up families.”

Vrankovich was also concerned that Tamaki appeared to be encouraging people to sell their homes. “They’ll be pressured to give the money from the house sale to the church, and they’ll never see it again. He’s extracting money from people for his dream, and something that he will effectively own. He wants to be mayor or king of this ‘city’ so he’s softening them up to get them to move [to Auckland] so he’s guaranteed not to be losing money on the deal.”

Mythbusting: Destiny’s Town

Brian Tamaki has hit the press with fantastic and extravagant plans for a new base for his church, a university and a “city” in South Auckland. He says he has got a resource consent from the Council to do it all.

In Parliamentary “speak”, he is a stranger to the truth. He could almost qualify himself as a political spin-doctor. Alternatively his statements might qualify him for a Tui billboard! (You could suggest this to Tui, but the company would probably not use the idea.)

The site at 25 Druces Road, formerly the site of Quik-Stik NZ Ltd label plant, has an area of 3.1159ha.

The media have variously spouted the opinions of the Teachers Union, and other opinions in attempting to attack Brian Tamaki. What they should ahve done is trot down to the council like I did and ask for the resource consent details. It is far easier to attack Brian Tamaki using the truth and facts provided by the council.

The Council decision provides a “certificate of compliance” with the rules in the district plan in very precise terms, the terms on which he sought the answer. The certificate states that the specified activities are permitted activities. Note that there is no mention of a “city” nor a university, at least not in the terms Mr Tamaki is publicising. There is not room for either on the site!

You can?use Google Earth?to match the photo evidence with the plan – I think all the buildings shown are in existence already.

Destiny Church plans

As stated the decision is a deemed resource consent, confirming the information his advisers could have obtained directly from the district plan, however it does provide assurance that the activities stated may be undertaken within 5 years even if the rules in the plan are changed in that period.

It is a shame Brian Tamaki has to always speak woth hyperbole because his organisation despite all the grandiose adherence of loyalty and silly titles actually does do some good things. But when you bluster and talk big it makes the truth that much more damaging.

What astounds me is that?the?media just blindly repeated the spin from various?organisations?including?the?NZEI, Destiny Church and other opinionated dribblers without actually bothering to check with the council. Now they can just cut/paste my post.

I don’t know what is worse, Brian Tamaki’s lies or the media’s laziness.

Mad as a box of frogs

Brian Tamaki  is as mad as a box of frogs

Brian Tamaki (I refuse to call him Bishop) is mad. Now I’m not really one to talk but Brian actually thinks he is the physical manifestation of God on Earth.

I don’t know about you guys but I really don’t think someone as venal as Brian Tamaki would be the Second Coming of Christ, would you?

It is worse though.

It is inevitable that Satan will attempt to destroy the work of God by spreading lies and slanders against God’s Annointed Man. As the Last Days unfold, Bishop Tamaki will undoubtedly come under increasing attack from his enemies.

In recent days we have seen this in the media. A recent episode of Campbell Live attempted to “expose” Destiny’s finances – though it is clear that Destiny has done nothing illegal.

Earlier this year, the Church and God’s Man Bishop Tamaki was the subject of an attack on Sunrise, an early morning TV3 show in which Dr Dennis Green, a religious scholar, compared the Bishop to Jim Jones and called Destiny a cult.

He’s nuts, and now his flock are starting to discover just how venal he really is. He is running a cult, a cult of personality. I think he is actually believing all the shit his followers say about him.

I wonder though when Brian will tell his flock that his marriage is a charade, and that Mrs Tamaki hasn’t been seen for months at the house in Maraetai
