    The photo for today has been chosen in recognition of the fitting finale of the long and illustrious career of Fox’s Bill O’Reilly …

    So the spooks are meeting in Queenstown under those broad blue skies to discuss… what?

    Asian invasion? A final last strike against the commies – or those who have not yet submitted fully to their domination?

    Bennett’s choice to fire the weapon used to massacre so many Vietnamese women and children during the Vietnam war, during a horrific bombing campaign along the Western Vietnamese border before and equally horrific campaign into Cambodia which directly led to the Khmer Rouge was in pretty bad taste, I feel. We’ve just had the “mother of all bombs” dropped on Syria, by the CIA – directed by the very people meeting in Queenstown; a bomb which will also cause untold misery to women and children (and men) and create another generation of angry men with nothing to lose and blood debts weighing heavily on their minds.

    There’s not much difference between the fruit seller who kicked off the Arab Spring and the boy who signs up to slit the enemies throats, I’m sorry to say. One had the means to go to the police, and to kick up a fuss; the other only has death to look forward to, whichever way he faces.

    Down with long tounge liars, killers, and hypocrites.

      From this NZ Herald report?

      The highly secretive meeting being held in Queenstown this weekend is a gathering of intelligence and security agencies related to the Five Eyes spying network, the Herald understands.

      Among the people believed to be attending are Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) director James Comey and Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) director Mike Pompeo.

      It is understood about 15 agencies which carry out intelligence for Five Eyes – the spying partnership of the United States, Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and New Zealand – are attending the conference.

      Bennett’s out of the country and won’t be there.

      • The Weatherman 2.1.1

        Yes, she’s revisiting older attempts to destabilize non-complying states!

      • Anne 2.1.2

        Bennett’s out of the country and won’t be there.

        Maybe they figured it would be a good idea to have their annual knees-up (or should that be heads-up) when she was out of the country because they are intelligence agencies so she doesn’t qualify.

      • Cinny 2.1.3

        Are they looking for a safe haven HQ?

        If nuclear war came to pass, NZ is in a fantastic location for survival.

        There is no need for us to be part of the five eyes, we are just being used, made to feel important as a member while being blindly exploited to ensure other agendas.

        Which starstruck members of the outgoing government will be in attendance?
        And now the story is out, will we expect to see the outgoing PM fawning all over the visitors?
        Is Agent Orange to join them at any stage? Am sure the Japanese would love to have a chat with him about lil Kims missiles.

    Small world.

    .

    President Trump will confront a familiar figure in the lawsuit over a DREAMer who was deported by federal immigration agents: U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel.

    He’s the judge who oversaw a lawsuit involving Trump University who Trump accused of being biased because of his “Mexican heritage.” Curiel, who was born in Indiana, approved a $25 million settlement between Trump and students who claimed they overpaid for real estate seminars. Trump didn’t admit any wrongdoing under the terms of the settlement.

    Now, Curiel has been assigned to handle a lawsuit brought on behalf of Juan Manuel Montes, 23, a California resident who was deported in February despite being approved for the Deferred Actions for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which provides protective status for undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children.

    Litvinenko, Politkovskaya, Magnitsky…..nothing to see here….Andrushchenko….

    .

    A Russian journalist known for his criticism of President Vladimir Putin has died after being beaten by unknown attackers, it has been reported.

    Nikolai Andrushchenko, 73, who co-founded the Novy Peterburg newspaper, was attacked six weeks ago and had been in a coma since then.

    He died on Wednesday in St Petersburg.

    His attackers have not been identified but Novy Peterburg editor Denis Usov linked the assault to articles in the newspaper about corruption in the city
