    Just a normal day in Christchurch…

    March 15 aside, that city has been let down badly in recent times.

    Archdruid anchors Trump in cyclic historical context: “Julius Caesar was a very rich man from a very rich family, and he became the spokesman for the interests of the Roman masses.” https://www.ecosophia.net/march-2019-open-post/

    “That’s actually a standard theme at this phase in the historical cycle: you get a kleptocratic elite that’s basically running the country into the ground because it refuses to notice what its preferred policies are doing to everyone outside the privileged classes, and then you get someone from that elite who breaks ranks with it, sides with everyone outside the privileged classes, and rides that wave straight into power. Our Orange Julius is following a very familiar historical trajectory.”

    Archaeologists have unearthed primary evidence of tsunamis and the glass-bead consequence of the comet impact in the Gulf of Mexico that wiped out most of the dinosaurs. Hope the moderators won’t mind me posting the link even if no obvious political relevance (although I suppose I could fake it by attaching some commentary re divine intervention to dispose of political dinosaurs): http://www.washington.edu/news/2019/03/29/north-dakota-site-shows-wreckage-from-same-object-that-killed-the-dinosaurs/

      We have the Volcanic ‘Ring of Fire’.

      There is evidence of a large meteor strike hitting a planet and creating the asteroid belt ,… which may have caused the earth to tilt its axis causing the poles, as it was offset by realignment with the gravitational pull of the sun… that’s why all the planets in our solar system now revolve differently, some clockwise, some anti.

      It also explains the break up of Gondwanaland and the shifting of the continents as the earth contracted , and hence also volcanism, , mountain building , and tectonic plates.

      Here’s a humorous informative vid of the joke of Darwinism , and even geological time-frames and the wildly erratic conclusions of carbon dating…

      The biggest con of our time = Darwinism.

    ——————————–

    WHY ON EARTH did these small business’s design their business model around the MINIMUM WAGE in the first place?

    Are they cheap?

    Do they have such poor business models that they are THAT fragile?

    Are we to subsidize them even further?

    Dont they already take a large cut of the taxpayers money through WFF?

    Did they gleefully jump on the Roger Douglas inspired neo liberal pigs back and ride the wave ,- yet that ALSO says that ”if a business is inefficient it should fail to make way for a better more well run business to take its place ” ?.

    Did they conveniently IGNORE that neo lib tenet when things were all hunky dory and workers were being screwed through legislation but now howl like stuck pigs when the times have changed ???

    Should we even feel sorry for the poor little diddums ?

    Time for a graduated Sir Robert Muldoon style PRICE FREEZE released over time by small increments . That’ll kick their collective rapacious price gouging arses. And their cheap minimum wage mentality’s.

    • Just listen to all their bawling excuses further on down , the same old scaremongering neo liberal crap we have been fed with for the past 35 years.

      Its time it all stopped.

      Its time these bums were kicked out on their ears into the street. Make em join the unemployment queues. These are the sort of scumbags that PERPETUATE unemployment among our young people.

      And gullible fearful people read that and worry about their own jobs and small corner of the world instead of acknowledging the REAL causes – over 3 decades of global neo liberalism. Its time we printed our own mint, and returned once again to KEYNESIANISM.

      And kick these globalist leeches fair on down the road .

      Get rid of them.

      With all due respect (which currently is very little) do you mind just putting your point into a couple of sentences that are understandable.

    Slovakia comes to it’s senses.

    Vocal government critic and anti-corruption activist Zuzana Čaputová was set to become Slovakia’s first female president after near complete results showed her winning Saturday’s runoff election.

    The environmental lawyer got 58.01% of the ballot after results from more than 90% of polling stations were counted, while the EU energy commissioner Maroš Šefčovič garnered 41.98, the Slovak statistics office said.

    “No need to worry, all will be fine,” Čaputová had said on Facebook after the first results began rolling in.

    Šefčovič, 52, the candidate of the ruling Smer-SD party, said he had called Čaputová, 45, to congratulate her and also planned to send flowers.

    “The first female president of Slovakia deserves a bouquet,” he said.

    Čaputová, a political novice who ran on a slogan of “Stand up to evil,” had earlier said the campaign showed “that values such as humanism, solidarity and truth are important to our society”.

  10. Even more criminology ?

  11. And the real reason for the Manson vids?

    A mirror back on ourselves. We are all supporting the New World Order in ignorance.

    Learn to question.

  12. Now I don’t agree with all Marzulli is saying esp regards what happened here in NZ, or red flag incidents, and I certainly have been vocal in supporting the govt in banning semi automatics, but it sure seems,… like we are headed towards a global govt.

    But the main thing to take away is that we are all capable of horrific acts, because we are the fallen Adamic race, – and all that while we have been conned and shepherded towards a final conclusion of a global centralized governance with a mass surveillance system that the NSA can only dream of.

    The juxtaposition between Chuck Missler and Charles Manson was there to highlight the difference.

    Building 7 is there to encourage people to think.
