“All of this must make you think very seriously. A highly controversial pharmaceutical product that is not tested in any placebo controlled trial, is connected to millions of serious adverse effects worldwide, is pushed by bribing doctors and politicians, and given only to fulfill targets! Does it deserve to be injected into your child?”

Rothschild´s IMF: How the Elite Can Rob Us Untaxed and Unpunished – and Accuse Others of Corruption

All animals are equal – but some are more equal than others /George Orwell, Animal Farm)


“There are a lot of losers in this system, but a few winners – bankers. In fact the IMF and World Bank have made the sale of electricity, water, telephone and gas systems a condition of loans to every developing nation. “


From new.euro-med.dk

Active Post 25 May 2016The Anonymous hacker group has recently taken offline the World Bank, the New York Stock Exchange, five U.S. Federal Reserve Banks and the Vatican.

Anonymous´s press release explained the intention behind the operation:
We would just like to make it very clear that all targets of #OpIcarus have been Rothschild and BIS central owned banks.
The banks have been getting away with murder, fraud, conspiracy, war profiteering, money laundering for terrorists and drug cartels, have put millions of people out on the street without food or shelter and have successfully bought all our governments to help keep us silenced. We represent the voice of the voiceless. Anonymous has now taken down some of the most prestigious institutions in global governance. 

Veterans Today 14 May 2016:  Bribery and corruption cost the world economy as much as US$2 trillion every year. A new report by the International Monetary Fund says the money lost to corruption every year is 2% of the global GDP.

The IMF was formed alongside with the World Bank at the Bretton Woods conference 1944. The IMF is to regulate international economies and payment settlements. It is tasked with developing the one world currency (see comments)- the so-called Special Drawing Rights – SDR

The IMF is owned by Rothschild and 30-40 additional (Jewish) families.  Of course, 51% of the IMF is owned by the US Treasury – but that is also under Rothschild control!

When it comes to corruption, IMF´s chief Christine Lagarde is on her homegroundThe Guardian 17 Dec. 2015  Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fund, is to stand trial in France over a multimillion-euro government payment to a controversial tycoon who supported former president Nicolas Sarkozy.
Lagarde, at the time Sarkozy’s finance minister, referred the long-running case to arbitration and signed off the payout.

The tide is turning: Big Pharma billionaire arrested, charged with conspiracy and bribery of doctors

Comment: not wanting to be the bearer of bad news but as a reader has pointed out in the comments with this article, “Every once in a while there’s a fall guy like John Kapoor to create the illusion of a just society.”  I’m inclined to agree with him.

(Natural News) I almost never thought I’d see the day when a Big Pharma founder and owner was finally arrested for running a criminal drug cartel, but that day has arrived.

“Federal authorities arrested the billionaire founder and owner of Insys Therapeutics Thursday on charges of bribing doctors and pain clinics into prescribing the company’s fentanyl product to their patients,” reports the Daily Caller News Foundation, one of the best sources of real journalism in America today.

Addictive drugs that include opioids, we now know, are claiming over 64,000 lives a year in the United States alone.

From the DCNF:

The Department of Justice (DOJ) charged John Kapoor, 74, and seven other current and former executives at the pharmaceutical company with racketeering for a leading a national conspiracy through bribery and fraud to coerce the illegal distribution of the company’s fentanyl spray, which is intended for use as a pain killer by cancer patients. The company’s stock prices fell more than 20 percent following the arrests, according to the New York Post.

Kapoor stepped down as the company’s CEO in January amid ongoing federal probes into their Subsys product, a pain-relieving spray that contains fentanyl, a highly-addictive synthetic opioid. Fentanyl is more than 50 times stronger than morphine, and ingesting just two milligrams is enough to cause an adult to fatally overdose.

The series of arrests came just hours after President Donald Trump officially declared the country’s opioid epidemic a national emergency. Drug overdoses led to 64,070 deaths in 2016, which is more than the amount of American lives lost in the entire Vietnam War.

As the opioid crisis has developed, more and more states have begun holding doctors and opioid manufacturers accountable for over-prescribing and over-producing the highly-addictive painkillers.

“We will be bringing some major lawsuits against people and companies that are hurting our people,” Trump said Thursday. He also spoke about a program similar to Nancy Reagan’s “Just Say No” initiative.

“More than 20,000 Americans died of synthetic opioid overdoses last year, and millions are addicted to opioids. And yet some medical professionals would rather take advantage of the addicts than try to help them,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement. “This Justice Department will not tolerate this.  We will hold accountable anyone – from street dealers to corporate executives — who illegally contributes to this nationwide epidemic.  And under the leadership of President Trump, we are fully committed to defeating this threat to the American people.

Why Local Govt is the # 1 thief of your money – a must watch if your local Council mystifies you

Bruce Rogan who is interviewed in this video by Vinny Eastwood – Bruce’s story can also be found on our Local Govt Watch pages at the main menu. Their story is shocking. See our Agenda 21 in NZ pages also for Dr Naomi Jacobs’ take on it. She was inspired by the Mangawhai rate payers’ debacle to write with some insight into what is really going down, taking the very long view. This is a must watch if you are increasingly puzzled by the goings on, often in secret (public excluded) behind your Council’s closed doors. They don’t want you to know. Vinny’s about exposing corruption among other things, his style of presentation is different to mainstream, and his facts are accurate. Consider supporting his work, we desperately need independent media.

Why Local Government Is The #1 Thief Of Your Money, Bruce Rogan http://www.thevinnyeastwoodshow.com/s… By far the most BORING topic to many people is any kind of talk about local government, “Aww why me?!” they shriek (internally and silently) as they’re lulled into a sound slumber ala the droning monotone, via the whining microphone, through the groaning speakerphone, rebounded off the empty acoustically rebounding lavish ceiling of a city hall meeting. The truth however is far more interesting than just mere dates and figures rambled forth, but in fact a great world of intrigue! The truth would be better defined as a white collar crime syndicate disguised as a local government that feeds off the wealth created by people who actually work for a living, then hand it off via bribery disguised as bidding, to international organised crime syndicates disguised as contractors, who then invent crises disguised as work projects to confuse people as to where the justification is in stealing everyone’s money.

Sugar industry quietly paid scientists to point blame at fat

sugar-485055_1280 (1).jpg

This is kind of shocking isn’t it? All these years we’ve been told no fat, when sugar is the greater culprit in ruining our health. We need to be vigilant … profits over people is the corporate mantra. Guard your health carefully & question everything. Remember too, sugar’s been labeled one of the building blocks of cancer.

myeclinik.com  A newly discovered cache of internal documents reveals that the sugar industry downplayed the risks of sugar in the 1960s.

In the 1960s, the sugar industry funded research that downplayed the risks of sugar and highlighted the hazards of fat, according to a newly published article in JAMA Internal Medicine.

by Camila Domonoske

The article draws on internal documents to show that an industry group called the Sugar Research Foundation wanted to “refute” concerns about sugar’s possible role in heart disease. The SRF then sponsored research by Harvard scientists that did just that. The result was published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 1967, with no disclosure of the sugar industry funding.

‘A Culture of Corruption’, Former Auckland Council Manager in Court

money-501613_1280.jpgYour governments, local and national, are not what they used to be Kiwis. Check out our Local Government Watch pages for similar in other districts. Search ‘categories’ also (left of any page) for related articles. Particularly this one … Is Local Government in New Zealand Corrupt? And not-to-be-missed, the Horowhenua’s long history of intriguing events. Like many Councils NZ wide, Horowhenua is in serious economic debt to the tune of $68 million, although it’s alleged the figure is closer to $100 million. These debt figures in NZ have accrued under the watch of very well paid CEs with salaries ranging from $600K to $150K. On average, council chief executives are paid almost three times the mayoral salary – and almost five times the average household income of their area. This is what happens when the bottom line is profit. We are undergoing a shift from a Welfare State to Corporate fascism. When Police appear to be monitoring who attends protests (once a democratic right) and acting on behalf of LG, something is seriously wrong folks. Check out Naomi Jacobs’ take on all of this here.

Case circumstantial and reliant on suspicion: court told

NZ Herald, 15 Nov 2016

The lawyer acting for a former Auckland council manager has disputed claims from the Serious Fraud Office that his client created a “culture of corruption”, by pointing to undeclared gifts worth hundreds of thousands of dollars given by others to council staff – including a former council chief executive.

The explosive claims emerged in closing arguments for the defence in the trial of Murray Noone and Stephen Borlase, accused of bribery and corruption over $1.1 million in consultancy payments between 2005 and 2012.

The Serious Fraud Office alleges these payments, and hundreds of thousands of dollars in travel and entertainment spending on associated council staff, was connected to Noone’s awarding of tens of millions of dollars of roading contracts to Borlase’s firm Projenz by Rodney District Council and Auckland Transport.

The long-running trial which opened in late September closed today with Simon Lance, acting for Noone, outlining to the High Court at Auckland how the evidence showed his client’s relationship Projenz was neither atypical nor corrupt.

Lance said the prosecution case had made much of potential conflicts of interest and Noone’s alleged lack of disclosure.

“These allegations did eventually lead to Noone’s employment at Auckland Transport being investigation, then brought to an end. But the lack of disclosure cannot necessarily lead to the conclusion there was a corrupt agenda,” Lance said.

Lance said evidence heard over the past seven weeks supported the contention that this was at worst an employment issue, and many of Noone’s colleagues and superiors had treated similar issues the same way.

Lance, quoting former RDC chief executive Roger Kerr-Newell’s testimony given earlier in the trial, said conflicts of interests were not “the end of the world”. Lance said Kerr-Newell admitted to receiving an expensive bottle of whiskey and a cigar from Projenz that were not listed on the RDC gift register.

“Some gifts, for example whiskey, were simply provided as a goodwill gesture – ‘a courtesy of life’. This was seen as standard industry practice,” Lance said in written submissions to the court.

Lance also said the council’s claim that Noone and Borlase were responsible for a “culture of corruption” in Auckland roading management was not supported by revelations at trial that Noone’s deputy Barrie George received hundreds of thousands of dollars in travel gifts and perks from other contractors.

Lance said George received $200,000 in travel gifts from Hiway Stabilisers, all before Noone was employed in 2005 at RDC.

George was originally charged alongside Noone and Borlase, but pleaded guilty on the eve of trial to corruptly receiving $103,580 in gifts from Projenz. He gave evidence for the Crown while wearing a home detention bracelet.

Lance argued the case against his client, and Borlase, was circumstantial and was reliant on suspicion.

“Suspicion plus suspicion only ever equals suspicion. If maybe this thorough investigation, which goes for a number of years, sees suspicions raised: But that is not proof beyond reasonable doubt,” he said.

The trial, before Justice Sally Fitzgerald alone, finished hearing eight weeks of evidence this morning. Justice Fitzgerald directed a hearing be scheduled for December 9 where she would deliver her verdict.

Is Local Government in New Zealand Corrupt?

This is right on topic and worth a re-visit in light of recent goings on around the country. We as a nation have adopted such a time worn clean green image, it doesn’t occur to many that the reality of the image died long ago, especially with only 40% of our rivers now clean enough to swim in. The clean and green has spilled over long ago into every area of our lives to the extent most Kiwis wouldn’t dream of believing corporations lie to us. Invited over a year ago to speak to a group of senior cits about Smart Meters (aka here as Advanced Meters) my information was greeted in some corners with snickers and whispers. We are a very trusting nation, particularly that generation. That was great three and four decades ago. It isn’t any more. If you are that trusting now you are fair game and seen as simply a sucker. I watch with angst as I see it played out before me … the elderly treated as cash cows by enterprising and unscrupulous business people, and particularly real estate agents. If you’re snickering now please go and watch The Corporation documentary (halfway down the ‘Corporations’ page). That will make you stop. Not to get off topic here (I could say much more but I won’t) … our District Councils have come under much scrutiny of late with many particularly savvy people holding them to the lip service they tend to pay on their websites. Check out our Local Government Watch pages on the site menu for some of the happenings around your country Kiwis. All is not as good as many believe. Listen to the story of the man in Rodney who exposed the corruption in his District Council. He lost his home and business. Certain ones will deal to those who rock the boat it seems.

The following article is from the Whale Oil blog and raises some important data to ponder on.

by Cameron Slater on August 21, 2015 
With three officers from Auckland Council CCO – Auckland Transport – now set to go on trial for bribery it is a convenient opportunity to raise the issue of corruption in local authorities.

Most ordinary citizens have no idea that corruption is rife. But there are varying types of corrupt behaviour and unless one is familiar with the law they can be overlooked.

Two of the most common forms of corruption occur so often you think it’s normal.

These two particular forms of corruption do not result in personal gain – such as back pocketing cash. But they do result in breaking the law, and they happen daily.

 give-1545697_1280

The first is ‘malfeasance’ and the second is ‘misfeasance’.

Both are the abuse of authority – or the position of authority.

These generally occur by breaking the rule of law. In NZ the laws that generally govern Local Government are the LGA (Local Government Act) and the RMA (Resource Management Act). Some other laws like the Public Works Act are part and parcel as well.

Breaking the law for ordinary citizens results in penalties. If caught it can do the same for those in local government but nobody is policing them so nothing happens.
