Time Magazine Posts Shocking Admission That Biden Election Was Orchestrated By A ‘Well-Funded Secret Cabal’ That ‘Changed Rules And Laws’

nowtheendbegins.com

So why are they coming out now and admitting the whole process was an orchestrated fraud? Because they’ve got the power now, and they know it cannot be taken away, and even if it could, the pusillanimous GOP doesn’t have the will or the stomach for the job. And Time Magazine? They’re the very same people that David Rockefeller thanked for agreeing to keep secret the New World Order meetings of the Bilderbergers.

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost 40 years……It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries.” ― David Rockefeller

Obama now here in NZ amidst a complete media ban – what’s to hide?

I expect they won’t be discussing the homeless at all? Or our growing child poverty rate? I note the agri tech companies will be dining with him. Check out our recent post on the other simultaneous events taking place. With a complete media ban of course the increasingly restless population of NZ won’t be privy to any of the real agenda for this visit. Free press & transparency are a thing of the distant past. Can you see a very new picture emerging? Note the security. The large gap that neo lib economics has produced both here & globally, between the rich and the poor, necessitates this entourage of muscle. They are flocking here in droves purchasing swathes of property, escaping the very mayhem their own greed & selfishness has bred. I personally see writing on the wall that isn’t good. Watch this space.

Barack Obama landed in New Zealand early this morning – and our own former Prime Minister, John Key, and his family are already on their way north for a golfing rendezvous with the former president.

Obama is on his first visit to New Zealand and organisers are pulling out all the stops – from actor Sam Neill as one of his hosts, to flying in chef Peter Gordon from London to cook for him.

The 44th president of the United States of America landed in a private Gulfstream jet at Auckland International Airport at 12.13am on Wednesday after spending two days in Singapore. There was a heavy police presence.

And amidst a media ban, so what don’t they want the public of NZ to know?

“Former US President Barack Obama will enforce an extensive ban on media and publicity during his visit to New Zealand this week.

There will be no interviews and media cannot report from inside his event.

Newshub has learned the secrecy extends to those invited to his event, who are set to be prohibited from posting to their own social media.

A bit like movie Fight Club, “the first rule of seeing Barack Obama is don’t talk about seeing Barack Obama”.

At his most recent event this year at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the rules were that “photography, video recording, streaming and social media posting, including on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and other platforms will not be permitted without exception”.

Five Eyes military exercise takes place under pretext of ‘Air Show’ as Jacinda Adern welcomes Obama in preparation of US joining TPPA in 2020.

https://envirowatchrangitikei.wordpress.com/2018/03/16/five-eyes-military-exercise-takes-place-under-pretext-of-air-show-as-jacinda-adern-welcomes-obama-in-preparation-of-us-joining-tppa-in-2020/

 

Five Eyes military exercise takes place under pretext of ‘Air Show’ as Jacinda Adern welcomes Obama in preparation of US joining TPPA in 2020.

From the Facebook page of Postman Investigates New Current affairs NZ Investigative News  with Ben VidgenGlenn HolmesJohn MintoDave Hoppy and Dai Mitchell.

The United States Air Force has confirmed its intention to have the world-renowned F-16 Fighting Falcon Jet Demonstration Team attend Wanaka from the Misawa Air Force base in Japan. Also displaying at the Airshow will be the C-17 Globemaster Demonstration Team out of Hawaii. Both the F-16s and the C-17 will operate out of Christchurch International Airport for the duration of the Airshow. Christchurch Airport is to host the Americans on the ground as according to the airshow organisers they’re unable to land at Wanaka. The RNZAF will help out with flying members of the US contingent through to the Airshow at various times over the weekend say the show’s organisers.

The timing of the visit which can expect aircraft to fly in ahead of the show coincides with the visit of former President Barack Obama and a month ahead of Hillary Clinton’s visit organized by the US Chamber of Commerce and US Business Council, the organization heavily involved in lobbying for the TPPA and believed to be in discussion regarding the reentry of the US into the treaty following the next American election (thought Trump hinted at the re-entry of USA into TPPA at Davos in Janaury this year). Therefore potentially the aircraft may also be participating in the anticipated visit by Obama to the South Island following the sighting of private jets, used in the advanced Secret Serivce of Bill Clinton during APEC 1999, in Dunedin earlier this month.

The American aircraft will not only ensure the biggest ever line up of modern military aircraft at the Wanaka airshow but the RNZAF intends to have one of the largest turnouts of its aircraft types at the Airshow. This is in addition to other Five Eyes (the defacto military arm of the TPPA) members attending the show including the Australians who are sending a Spartan transport aircraft along with Hawk Jets while the French are coming with the CASA transport jet.

Wanaka is currently also the site of a NASA facility funded by the US military, one of several facilities to pop up or expand using equipment built by known military contractors, these include the expanded Waihopai facility in Blenheim, Rocket lab in Gisborne, a private facility however funded by the US Navy, expanded tracking facilities in Bluff, among other known or suspected sites upgraded or added to in the past few years.
Further the visit by contemporary military aircraft at this year’s air show is not the only time we have seen an influx of Five Eyes military aircraft to New Zealand.

On August 3 2017,” New Zealand Defense Minister Mark Mitchell confirmed that Singapore’s fighter jets would be participating in an upcoming military exercise between the two countries. The news came as the two sides consider options for basing these aircraft in one of the country’s largest airfields for training as part of their broader effort to further their military cooperation in the coming years”. (Ohakea will also be basing a Singapore cyber intelligence unit and comes at the time Five Eyes is using Information Dominance warfare to suppress dissenting voices on social media).

Singapore is believed to have left equipment when their intelligence, cyber intelligence and artillery trained here during Operation Rolling Thunder while the USA left helicopters and other equipment here during Operation Koru in 2015. These exercises mark an escalated presence by Five Eyes security forces since 2011 including several visits by the US marines based in Hawaii. Our sources suggest this includes building barracks for the Marines (at this stage able to house 300 soldiers) in Waiouru for permanent “winter training”.
In January 2017, Singapore and New Zealand officials discussed stepping up cooperation through various ways. One of these opportunities had been for Singapore to set up a pilot training base at Ohakea Air Base, New Zealand’s third largest airfield, recently subject to a $2 billion dollar upgrade, as the land-scarce city state continues to look for other partners that can provide room for it to train its armed forces.

In February 2017 two Singapore F-15s were at the Ohakea Air Base for celebrations commemorating the 80th anniversary of the Royal New Zealand Air Force. And in June, when New Zealand’s air force chief Tony Davies paid a visit to Singapore, he viewed a static display of the F-15 fighter aircraft at Paya Lebar Air Base.

On August 3, Mitchell, the defense minister, announced that a Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) training exercise hosted by the Royal New Zealand Air Force would take place at Ohakea Air Force base from 30 August to 25 September. Jacinda Adern and Winston Peters who have both confirmed their commitment to both the TPPA and the Five Eyes security alliance have yet to suggest this proposal or the 20 billion earmarked under national will be scrapped under their administration.

This month Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said her ministers were working to get an exemption for New Zealand from the US’ imposition of tariffs on steel and aluminium. This supports the Postman’s claims last month that the current trade war and aluminum tariffs would be used by the USA to reinstate it self in the TPPA and have the currently suspended TPPA provision reinstated. The Tiwai smelter employs over 3000* people and is the backbone of Southland economy which generates over 20% pf the country’s gross domestic product.

Adern told reporters New Zealand had a strong case for an exemption because of its “long defense and security relationship with the United States stating New Zealand was clearly not an intended target of the tariffs, given its steel exports to the US were small. Ardern stated New Zealand’s relationship was similar to Australia’s in many ways and Australia had been given the exemption. Both New Zealand and Australia are ‘five eyes’ intelligence partners with the US.

‘Peaceful’ America Has Been At War 93% of the Time – 222 Out of 239 Years – Since 1776

Note in the article, the wars that were in effect land wars, are called by the name of those from whom the lands were wrested: “Indian Wars”. They were named thus in my country … “Maori Wars” until more recent years when they got corrected to “Land Wars”. The former titles of course deflected the reader’s eye from the real instigators of  the wars. Nobody wanted to admit the  real reason for them.

February 23, 2015 “ICH” –  The U.S. Has Only Been At Peace For 21 Years Total Since Its Birth

In 2011, Danios wrote:

Below, I have reproduced a year-by-year timeline of America’s wars, which reveals something quite interesting: since the United States was founded in 1776, she has been at war during 214 out of her 235 calendar years of existence.  In other words, there were only 21 calendar years in which the U.S. did not wage any wars.

To put this in perspective:

* Pick any year since 1776 and there is about a 91% chance that America was involved in some war during that calendar year.

* No U.S. president truly qualifies as a peacetime president.  Instead, all U.S. presidents can technically be considered “war presidents.”

* The U.S. has never gone a decade without war.

* The only time the U.S. went five years without war (1935-40) was during the isolationist period of the Great Depression.

Texas carpet bombs its own hurricane-traumatized victims with neurological poisons sprayed from military planes

Photo: Natural News

Natural News) The war on humanity continues unabated in Texas, where over one million acres of land are being carpet-bombed with the aerial spraying of neurotoxic chemicals in an effort to kill mosquitoes. Texas authorities are openly lying to citizens, claiming these poisons are magically not poisons at all when they come into contact with humans. Even more alarmingly, Texas authorities are urging their citizens to use other toxic chemicals on their skin — chemicals that are part of a binary weapon system that causes Alzheimer’s and dementia by incurring permanent brain damage (see the science, below).

“U.S. Air Force C-130 cargo planes began spraying insecticides over three eastern Texas counties over the weekend and will expand to other areas over the next two weeks, officials from the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) said,” reports Reuters. “About 1.85 million acres have been treated as of Tuesday, according to the department.”

In effect, the State of Texas is unleashing weapons of mass destruction against its own citizens, generating trillions of dollars in long-term health care costs that financially benefit the drug makers who sell prescription “treatments” for Alzheimer’s, dementia, cancer and other diseases caused by chemical exposure. The aerial bombardment of high-density population centers, it turns out, is a revenue generating activity for the for-profit “sick care” industry that has infiltrated the entire Texas legislature.

16th 9/11 anniversary: It’s time for the Awful Truth

The Awful Truth about 9/11 is slowly leaking out. The US Attorney for the Southern District of New York is being petitioned to reopen the case. International scholarly journals are publishing articles with titles like “9/11 as False Flag.” The London Daily Mail just published a remarkably fair and accurate report on reasons to doubt the official story.

Here in the San Francisco Bay Area, the 9/11 community is gearing up for the big annual event, the 9/11 Truth Film Festival, an all-day extravaganza at the Grand Lake Theater in Oakland.

The Awful Truth about 9/11 is one critically important aspect of the Larger Awful Truth About Many Other Things. Dr. Gideon Polya, a leading expert on avoidable mortality, has pointed out that 9/11 and the wars it triggered have killed dozens of millions of people – roughly 32 million of them Muslims in countries the US has attacked or destabilized. Dr. Polya thinks we had better face up to these and other Awful Truths if we humans are going to have any kind of future…assuming it isn’t already too late. Below are his latest ruminations.

Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor

We Need Unvarnished Truth-Telling to Stop the Global Avoidable Mortality Holocaust

by Dr. Gideon Polya

Listen to Gideon Polya interviewed on Kevin Barrett’s Radio Show

Instead of unvarnished truth-telling crucial for global risk management in the face of existential nuclear, poverty and climate threats, Humanity is fed fake news through lies of omission and commission by the Mainstream Yellow Press and effective free speech is only granted to dissenters who provide an acceptably soft version of the Awful Truth (e.g. corporate-backed, climate-lite 350.org that wants to reduce atmospheric CO2 to 350 ppm from the present disastrous  405 ppm CO2, as compared to 300.org that has a science-informed target of the pre-Industrial Revolution circa 300 ppm CO2).  “Inglorious Empire. What the British did to India” by Shashi  Tharoor is a must-read and powerful but flawed and iconoclast-lite excoriation of 2 centuries of deadly British rule over India [my additions within square brackets]: “[In 1947] The British left a society with 16 per cent literacy, a life expectancy of 27, practically no domestic industry and over 90 per cent living below what today we would call the poverty line.

NASA is hiring people to DEFEND Earth from Extraterrestrial threats – SERIOUSLY

Lest you think this a hoax here is the NASA link to apply:  at USAJobs.gov

From ancient-code.com

Do you have what it takes to be part of NASA’s latest group? Their goal is simple: Protect Earth from extraterrestrial threats.

It almost sounds like a superhero description right? We need YOU to protect humanity from the dangers of outer space, from aliens to anything else that might pose a threat. Well, ok, it’s not quite like that, but the job description isn’t far from it.

This is your chance for a job that is out of the ordinary and very well paid. The US Government has opened a vacancy at NASA, and anyone who gets the role will protect the Earth from extraterrestrial pollution and vice versa.

The position one lucky person will get was created after the signing of the Outer Space Treaty in 1967 and was formed to make sure that humans, during space exploration don’t contaminate planets, moons, or any other objects they come into contact in space. However, the job also has to take care of any unwanted extraterrestrial micros from getting to Earth. We don’t want an alien virus striking down Earth, do we?

An Excellent & Very Detailed Exposé of Agenda 21/30 and the UN Plan for Global Governance

Martin Lauchenauer

(See also: When Central Banks Rule the World by Joan Veon below)

While Joan Veon passed away in October of 2010, this may be one of the most important videos that you watch this year. 

This explains how the One World Government is here now and how those countries that refuse to be a part of it can be taken out.

Up until September 1994, Joan Veon was just a businesswoman. As a result of attending the United Nations Conference on Population and Development in Cairo, Egypt, she received her “wake up call” as she found there was more going on at the global level than most Americans knew, understood or were being told.

In her determination to understand the global level and what it really means for Americans, Joan has covered over 103 UN and UN-related conferences since Cairo which include the economic, political, environmental, military, peace-keeping, legal, trade and financial. They include (8) Group of Seven (now Eight), (6) Group of Seven Finance Ministers Meetings, (4) Group of Eight Foreign Ministers meetings, the International Organization for Security Commissions (IOSCO), the Rio Plus Five (follow-up to the Earth Summit), (6) World Economic Forum meetings, (2) Free Trade Areas of the Americas meetings, (5) Bank for International Settlements meetings, (2) Gorbachev State of the World Forums, various conferences at the United Nations, the International Criminal Court, Al Gore’s First Global Conference on Re-inventing Government, (2) World Trade Organization meetings, and others.

Joan is credentialed through USA Radio Network in Dallas, Texas and has appeared as a result guest on the Michael Reagan Show, the Derry Brownfield Show, Point of View, Radio Liberty, Jeff Rense, Southwest Radio Church, The Power Hour and others. She has asked questions and interviewed president and prime ministers, key United Nations/IMF/World Bank officials, Bank for International Settlement officials, Bank of England officials, high officials throughout the Clinton and Bush Administrations, multinational/transnational CEOs, and many others to understand the global agenda and how it relates to you and I living on the local level.

Joan’s non-profit organization, The Women’s International Media Group, Inc. has 501c(3) status in the State of Maryland. Contributions to help defray expenses incurred while traveling to these meetings are greatly appreciated. Please make your check payable to The Women’s International Media Group, Inc. Joan writes a bi-monthly newsletter documenting her research and travels called “UN Watch!” Please see the order form for more details.

Joan has written two books, Prince Charles the Sustainable Prince which is in it fifth printing and discusses her belief that when the U.S. Senate signed the U.N. Charter in 1945 is when American officially entered world government and reverted back under British rule. This book documents the role of the British royal family as a formidable power working BEHIND the scenes of the UN and the role of Prince Charles with that of sustainable development and public-private partnerships.

Her second book, the United Nations’ Global Straitjacket is over 400 pages and is a “handbook on world government.” In it she explains the political structure of the United Nations, she discusses the coming global stock exchange, the International Criminal Court and gives a call to “stand in the Gap.”

You will find many more videos by Joan Veon by searching Youtube. Here is another that is related:


A five minute clip below provides excerpts from various world leaders’ speeches mentioning the ‘new world order’.

Check out our Agenda 21/2030 pages at the menu, particularly the NZ page if you are a Kiwi (you need to read there Dr Naomi Jacobs’ ebook). You can find further related articles & videos by searching ‘categories’. This is all very real & not conspiracy. There are multiple videos out there illustrating how US Presidents have been including ‘New World Order’ in their speeches since the end of the Gulf War (see video above). It is all well on track and not a secret by any stretch of the imagination. There is currently plenty of information available to you online however I would not expect it to be there forever as control of information tightens up.

The TPPA is dead!

Here is It’s Our Future’s latest update on the TPPA and it’s very good news! Please share this … EnvirowatchRangitikei

The TPPA is dead

After years of campaigning the TPPA is finally dead.

In the aftermath of the United States election, President-elect Trump has made it clear that he intends to withdraw from the agreement on his first day in office.  Republicans and Democrats in the US House of Representatives and Congress have also stated that they will not try to push the agreement through before Trump is inaugurated on 20 January 2016.

Although there was some half-hearted talk of the TPPA going ahead without US involvement at the APEC summit in Peru, there is no realistic chance of this happening.  First, as Professor Jane Kelsey has pointed out, for the TPPA to go ahead without the US would require the consent of all parties involved, including the US itself.  Any arrangement between the remaining countries would have to be renegotiated as an entirely new agreement. Secondly, the chances of this happening are close to zero as many of the TPPA countries were engaged in the negotiations in the hope of gaining increased access to the US market for their goods and services.  The Japanese Prime Minister has since written off a TPPA without the United States as “meaningless“.

The death of the TPPA is a victory for the campaigners and activists who have fought the agreement in all of the potentially affected countries.  While it is Donald Trump who will formally kill the agreement in January next year, the TPPA was on its last legs long before Trump was elected.  It was the efforts of grassroots campaignersthat delayed back the negotiations so that they fell within the US election cycle, and who made the agreement a political liability for both the US political parties and for the politicians pushing the negotiations elsewhere.  In New Zealand, the civil society campaign against the TPPA has been enormous and in February this year saw the biggest protests the country has seen in many years.  In doing this we were part of the international movement that ultimately stopped the agreement in its tracks.  Thank you all for your efforts.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership Amendment Bill 

Despite Trump’s strong anti-TPPA position, the National-led government insisted on pushing the Trans-Pacific Partnership Amendment Bill through Parliament during the media black-out that followed the US election.  This has understandably caused alarm for some, but fortunately there is nothing to worry about.

Although the TPPA implementing legislation was passed by the New Zealand Parliament, it cannot and will not come into effect unless the TPPA “comes into force for New Zealand” – see s 2 of the Bill here. The TPPA will not come into force unless ratified by countries representing 85% of the GDP covered by the agreement.  This cannot happen with the US, whose GDP vastly exceeds 15% of the GDP of TPPA countries.  For more detail, check out the excellent analysis of the implementing legislation by Professor Geddis of the Otago University law school.

The National Party’s stubbornness in passing implementing legislation for a dead agreement was a wasteful exercise in futility on the Government’s part, as pointed out by new Green Party MP and former It’s Our Future Coordinator Barry Coates.

What next after the TPPA?

Although the TPPA is gone, there are other international agreements to be concerned about.

The most immediate possible threat to the New Zealand public is the Trade in Services Agreement (“TiSA”), a proposed agreement to create restrictions on the regulation of international trade in services, particularly banking, health care and transport.  This agreement, like the TPPA, is being negotiated in secret.  There are 23 parties to the TiSA agreement, most significantly the US, the EU, and Japan.  It was rumoured that TiSA was due to be completed at a meeting of the member countries’ finance ministers in early December.  This meeting has been cancelled, however, because of both disagreement between the US and EU on certain key issues, and because it is unclear what stance the Trump administration will take on the agreement.  For now, at least, TiSA is looking shaky.

A further concern is the recent announcement that New Zealand and China will renegotiate their free trade agreement.  At this stage there are few details available about the scope of the new negotiations.  We will monitor this very closely and keep you updated, particularly if there is any hint that some of the more toxic elements of the TPPA (such as ISDS) are on the table.

Finally, with the TPPA dead there is some speculation that the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership negotiations (involving China and India) may become more significant. This remains to be seen. As with the US-NZ FTA and TiSA, will keep you up to date with any RCEP developments through this bulletin or on the It’s Our Future facebook page.

Thank you again for your campaigning against the TPPA.  The end of the agreement is a victory for the people over corporate interests, and we should celebrate.

It is, however, bitter-sweet that the end of the TPPA may be associated for some with the rise of a xenophobic and bigoted populist to the presidency of the United States.  In resisting the TPPA, we have stood against corporate power and its influence on the political process. We have also stood against the neo-liberal globalisation that has grown inequality within and between nations just as activists in the 90s and early 2000s fought against the WTO and the toxic policies of the IMF and World Bank. Rejecting these things does not mean rejecting a diverse and inclusive society, nor is it no excuse for bigotry or xenophobia. We are fortunate in New Zealand to have seen very little of this in the campaign against the TPPA and I hope there will be none in the future.While the TPPA is over, there are and will continue to be other similar agreements to monitor and to resist.  As well as being part of a coordinated international campaign, your efforts part of the tradition of resistance to unfair trade agreements and corporate power that stopped the Multilateral Agreement on Investment in 1997 and the Doha Round of the WTO in the years that followed.  This struggle will continue and we all have to remain on our toes.

Kia kaha koutou,

Does John Key personally profit from NZ’s growing indebtedness? Hear him explaining his shares with the Bank of America – the bank that’s ‘too crooked to fail’

A few posts back we had a video of John Key speaking briefly on his Bank of America shares. Here is the extended version of that video in which we see public watchdog Penny Bright of Auckland questioning the Prime Minister in 2011 following a no response from her Official Information request. Speaking to a Grey Power public meeting in Papatoetoe in 2011 the Prime Minister had just explained that NZers (mums and dads, businesses, farms etc., not the NZ government/corporation) were in debt and 85 percent of that debt is owed to foreigners. He adds that no OECD country borrows a big percentage of their money from foreigners.  Penny then asked him specifically to tell her exactly to whom NZ has become indebted since National came to power in 2008. Especially she asked, whether or not NZ has become indebted to the Bank of America or any institutions in connection with that bank. His body language clearly conveys that he has clearly been caught on the hop by these very pointed questions, especially given he hadn’t answered her OI request.

Do watch this, it’s quite short and very enlightening!

Further we have an article here by Rolling Stone, “Bank of America: Too Crooked to Fail” cited by Evelyn Gilbert of NZ’s aotearoaawiderperspective blog. Some very pertinent facts there about the Bank.

“The problem most people have in judging John Key and his role here in New Zealand and why he is doing what he is doing leaves a lot of people, even those who vote National, bewildered and confused and angry is that they don’t know about the way money is created, how he gained his wealth and what he has to do to keep it so I thought I’d give a couple of examples.

Here is number 1: John Key has most of his paper wealth in Bank of America which is by insiders considered the most corrupt banking entity in the world and that alone gives him a huge conflict of interest!

And this is what Matt Taibbi from Rolling Stone Magazine has to say about the Bank:

At least Bank of America got its name right. The ultimate Too Big to Fail bank really is America, a hypergluttonous ward of the state whose limitless fraud and criminal conspiracies we’ll all be paying for until the end of time. Did you hear about the plot to rig global interest rates? The $137 million fine for bilking needy schools and cities? The ingenious plan to suck multiple fees out of the unemployment checks of jobless workers? Take your eyes off them for 10 seconds and guaranteed, they’ll be into some shit again: This bank is like the world’s worst-behaved teenager, taking your car and running over kittens and fire hydrants on the way to Vegas for the weekend, maxing out your credit cards in the three days you spend at your aunt’s funeral…”

As US Signs TPP In New Zealand, protesters also gather in 7 countries & 38 US cities!

With a massive turnout yesterday of some 32,000 protesters NZ wide, 25,000 in Auckland alone, clearly there is massive opposition to the TPPA. It’s not over yet.

Additionally, we are left to the impression given by mainstream, corporate, offshore media, that we are the only ones protesting against this deal that’s been composed in secret, without consultation with either Iwi, NZ’s Treaty partners, or the general public. We are expected to trust these people? NZ has just slipped on the corruption scale I read recently – it’s not the Pollyanna, squeaky clean nation many thought it was.

So here is evidence of protests beyond our shores, in collaboration with the world-wide opposition that is rising against this corporate robbery of our sovereignty, in the name of profits and world control.

Ahead of TPP signing: NZ Police have been undertaking riot training … we are not a democracy

So… ahead of the TPP signing on February 4th coming up, we have our corrupt government/corporation ensuring any dissenters to this closing of a secret deal get smartly rapped over the knuckles! or other parts of the body … we have the appearance here of Police State beginnings as per the US of A. The initiators of the said ‘agreement’.

Bryan Bruce has summarized this news item so aptly:

“Negotiate the TPPA deal in secret.

• Refuse to listen to legitimate concerns about the undemocratic process.

• Produce a document that allows multi-national corporations to override our health,environment,employment and copyright laws.

• Invite the co- conspirators to our country to sign the deal close to Waitangi Day ( when we celebrate the founding Treaty of our nation – now seriously undermined by the TPPA).

• Hold the signing in a Casino and not Parliament.

• Bring out the riot squad if anyone objects.

Brilliant.

P.S. Oh- and while your at it , make sure you fly that new corporate logo flag on the day the foreign trade ministers get here. We don’t want people looking at our current flag and wondering what happened to the rule of law.” (SOURCE)

Read the Herald article:

TPP: Police undertake riot training

New Zealand Police have been undertaking mass riot training ahead of the signing of the Trans-Pacific Partnership in Auckland next month.

The trade agreement, that has sparked widespread controversy due to its closed-door negotiations, will be signed by international diplomats on February 4.

Dozens of large-scale protests have been held across the country as the five years of negotiations for the deal came to a close in the US last year.

The Herald understands that increased riot training – officially known as public order training – has been taking place ahead of the signing, as police prepare for more possible civil unrest.

Police Association vice-president Senior Sergeant Luke Shadbolt said that the TPP signing was the focus of annual public order training.
