Pussy-grabber in Chief appoints serial groper as US Ambassador to New Zealand
Scott Brown, 57, supports torture, posed nude for a photoshoot, and was named as having groped and made sexually inappropriate comments towards a former Fox News contributor Andrea Tantaros.

Former US intelligence advisor Paul Buchanan said Brown’s appointment was an “insult”.

“It just shows you what importance we have to the Trump Administration”.

Brown’s support of waterboarding was “very troubling” Buchanan said. Adding that Brown was “not the brightest bulb”, and was “pretty much useless as a Senator.”

Facebook child rapist gets a laughable sentence

Shaun Hart coerced three [retarded] teenaged girls into sending him naked and semi-clad photos of themselves on Snapchat and Instagram, which he then used to blackmail them into granting sexual favours.

And in the case of his youngest victim – just 13 – that included “taking her virginity”.

Hart, 18, was sentenced to nine years and two months in jail when he appeared [in front of the frigging Justice Paul Davison] at the High Court in Hamilton on Friday on two charges of rape and five of blackmail.

Hart made contact online via Facebook with his first victim – an 18 year old who lives outside of the Waikato.  http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/89528428/Nude-photo-blackmailer-raped-13-year-old

Peter Thiel’s ghost citizenship mystery deepens

Posted by te2ataria on February 1, 2017

Only in the Zombie Democracy:

Gay billionaire and Trump supporter became a NZ citizen even though he didn’t intend to live here!

It has been revealed that Thiel was granted NZ citizenship even though he had never lived in New Zealand and made plain in his application that he did not intend to in the future—two statutory requirements to become a citizen.

“He attended a private citizenship ceremony at the New Zealand Consulate in Santa Monica in August of 2011.”

Prime Minister Bill English has reportedly defended the Government’s decision to grant him citizenship, saying Thiel had “demonstrated his commitment to New Zealand” over the last 11 years after becoming a resident in 2006.

“TradeMe founder Sam Morgan and Xero CEO Rod Drury wrote letters in support of Thiel’s application.”

It’s unclear how the NZ citizenship might affect his U.S. citizenship, if any.

What is clear, however, is that Theil has powerful links to the spy world.

“Thiel is the co-founder of Palantir, a secretive data analysis company that works with several spy agencies, including potentially New Zealand’s.”

Police thugs get a hard on when they murder someone or destroy homes?

Armed police from hell destroy house in botched paramilitary operation

Every time police fucks up, we pay!

Napier couple were forced to abandon their home and  move to a motel at public expense after their home was “destroyed” by armed police hunting a wanted man on Friday night.

Police acting Hawke’s Bay area [dickhead] commander said police received information that the hunted man, Shawn Harding, was at the address, but would not divulge details on how the information was received.

“Police acted on this information and took necessary steps to clear the property and confirm for themselves whether or not he was there,” he said.

How did they do that?

“The police just made the biggest cock-up,” said Greg Cummins, the occupant, who was ordered out of his Bristol St house in Tamatea.

“We came out of the house – guns in faces of course,” he said.

Police fired a hail of live rounds followed by flash grenades, smoke bombs and tear gas into the house, despite repeated assurances by Cummins that no one was inside. A vehicle parked on the property was also fired at repeatedly.

But police insisted they had tracked down their man.

“For three hours on the side of the road I said [to detectives] there’s no one else in the house.”

He offered to escort police in, and “kept telling them they were yelling at an empty house,” but was told it was against protocol.

Mystery surrounds death of 4-year-old Dunedin boy

A truck carrying bobby calves and three young boys went off the road and overturned into a paddock, killing the youngest of the four occupants, a 4-year-old Dunedin boy on January 13.

“The driver, understood to be a Dunedin-based dairy farmer and neighbour of the boys’ family, suffered serious injuries and was taken to Southland Hospital alongside a pair of 6-year-old brothers, who had minor injuries,” said a report.

“I have no idea what his route was, where he was going, or what he was doing at that time of night [and why he was travelling with the neighbour’s three young boys,]” said the policeman dealing with the case.

The boy’s name has not been released, “with a police spokeswoman confirming the family had approached the coroner to get their son’s name permanently suppressed.”

The State’s other Stinking Secrets: Why authorities fiddle the figures for road fatalities

Truth hurts New Zealand’s $10-billion tourism industry. The average tourist would not visit this country, if they knew true extent of the daily carnage on our deadly roads.

Truth about the mayhem would also hurt the massive foreign investment in New Zealand.

[The Stock of total foreign investment in New Zealand was at least NZ$ 322,279 million, excluding confidential amounts funneled through Channel Islands, according to a report posted at https://www.nzte.govt.nz/en/invest/statistics/ ]

Therefore…

“Frantic travellers rushing to catch flights abandoned their vehicles and started walking to Auckland Airport after a crashed truck completely blocked the main route to the airport from the north,” said a report.

It’s unclear what actually happened to the abandoned cars, if in fact the passengers were the drivers.

The truck rolled about 4.20pm on Tuesday, completely closing the southbound lanes for nearly two hours.

Road Murders: Getting killed on NZ roads is a compulsory affair

Posted by te2ataria on December 16, 2016

You’re sober, driving carefully, and the car is in good nick, but still end up dead on the way to work!

The hundreds of people who are being killed on NZ ‘s deadly roads each year are being road murdered, so their deaths must not be treated as accidental.

About 2.7 million licensed but not necessary qualified drivers, half million or so unlicensed/unqualified drivers and more than one million tourists (per year) drive on New Zealand death roads.

A large number of the above drive a vehicle under the influence (illicit drugs, banned substances, prescription medication…), while intoxicated, fatigued or mentally unfit, resulting in inordinate numbers of fatalities and injuries. [Other factors for the carnage include deadly roads, road unworthy vehicles…]

Between 2001 and 2014, New Zealand’s vehicle fleet reportedly increased by 32 per cent, while the population grew by 16 per cent and foreign travel was up by 15 per cent.  And over the last 10 years the number of international visitors has increased by about 30 per cent.

Here’s the latest road fatalities, so far today:

Two people were killed in Rakahouka crash, Southland

Two people were killed in a violent crash on Lorne-Dacre Road (SH 98) Rakahouka, Southland. A third person is in a critical condition, while a fourth has serious injuries. http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/update-two-people-have-died-following-rakahouka-crash-southland

Fatal crash in Omokoroa [Bay of Plenty of Deaths]

A fatal crash occurred in Omokoroa, Tauranga, just before 7.30pm this evening.  At least one person in the crash, which happened on Anderley Ave.  http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/fatal-crash-omokoroa

  • NZ Road fatalities as of December 16, 2016, according to government: 308
  • NZ Road fatalities as of December 16, 2016, according to statistical models: Up to 866

The State’s other Stinking Secrets

Truth hurts New Zealand tourism. The average tourist would not visit this country, if they knew true extent of the daily carnage on our deadly roads. Therefore:

To protect the tourism industry, about two-thirds of the road fatalities in New Zealand go unreported by our political police, or unrecorded by Minitru [“Ministry of Transport”.]  Se blog content for some of the most blatant omissions.

How Many Foreigners Killed in NZ Since 2000?

About 3,500 overseas visitors, international students, foreign workers, recent emigrants and refugees have lost their lives and 20,000 others seriously injured in New Zealand since year 2000.

Chief District Court Judge Steps in the Doogue-pile

Posted by te2ataria on December 7, 2016

Sent by a reader

What’s the life of a man worth in New Zealand?

The Department of Corrections has been ordered to pay a record (!) $172,000 to the family of Robert Charles Ian Cave who was fatally crushed by a log while doing community work on June 7, 2014.

“Corrections was ordered to pay reparations of $155,000 for emotional harm to Cave’s family, and a further $17,471.12 to the Cave’s father for financial losses.”

The judgement was entered by Chief District Court Judge Jan-Marie Doogue at a hearing in the Nelson District Court on Wednesday, according to a report.

[It’s unclear how the authorities reconcile the fact that families of selected Christchurch Earthquake victims received millions of dollars in compensation, while the reparation to  Cave family was a measly $172,000. Moderator]
