Houses, hotel and shops approved on land of Islamic cemetery

Israeli officials have approved the construction of a massive complex which will include 200 houses, shops and a 480 room hotel in Jerusalem. The problem is this; the land that the complex will be built upon is already part of an Islamic cemetery. Although the land cited for the build is already home to a car-park and school, earlier excavations showed that bones and graves remain underneath.

Treason charges: What lurks behind the bizarre allegations

Instead of indicting, and persecuting, those who, to this day, function within the public sector as the troika’s minions and lieutenants (while receiving their substantial salaries from the long-suffering Greek taxpayers), politicians and parties whom the electorate condemned for their efforts to turn Greece into a protectorate are now persecuting me, aided and abetted by the oligarchs’ media. I wear their accusations as badges of honour.

Why Russia Shut Down NED Fronts

The neocon-flagship Washington Post fired a propaganda broadside at President Putin for shutting down the Russian activities of the National Endowment for Democracy, but left out key facts like NED’s U.S. government funding, its quasi-CIA role, and its plans for regime change in Moscow.

“Bomb Iran” plan simply won’t go away

Even before the upcoming August recess on Capitol Hill, the dogs of war, unleashed by remote control from Tel Aviv, predictably are trying to tear the Iran-P5+1 nuclear deal to shreds from all sides.

Power-Mad Erdogan Launches War in Attempt to Become Turkey’s Supreme Leader

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an lost his bid to become Turkey’s supreme leader in last month’s elections. So he’s taken the country to war to increase his popularity and improve his chances of victory in snap elections in November.

Turkey in danger

While the Western Press salutes the authorisation given by Turkey to the United States, allowing the US to use its military bases in order to fight Daesh, Thierry Meyssan looks at the nation’s internal tensions. In his view, maintaining Mr. Erdo?an in power, as well as the lack of a new majority during the next general elections, will rapidly lead to civil war.

Russia Shoots Down US Stealth Coup

Times are tough for America’s “color revolution” industry. Perfected in Eastern Europe after the fall of the Soviet Union, and honed during the so-called “Arab Spring,” the process of backing subversion in a targeted country and overthrowing a sitting government under the cover of staged mass protests appears to be finally at the end of running its course.

That is because the United States can no longer hide the fact that it is behind these protests and often, even hide their role in the armed elements that are brought in covertly to give targeted governments their final push out the door. Nations have learned to identify, expose, and resist this tactic, and like Adolf Hitler and the Nazi regime’s tactic of Blitzkrieg or “lighting war,” once appropriate countermeasures are found, the effectiveness of lighting fast, overwhelming force be it military or political, is rendered impotent.

'We have to stop having a soft heart'

People coming to live in New Zealand would need to take out personal medical insurance for at least 10 years, under a policy being considered by NZ First.

The party's leader Winston Peters has expressed his support for the idea, saying "we have to stop having a soft heart and a head to match".

"You can climb off a plane in New Zealand and be in hospital the next day," Mr Peters said. "We have long waiting lists...it seems to me to be only reasonable and fair."

NZ First is holding its annual convention in Rotorua, with delegates considering a number of remits. If accepted, they will be examined by caucus.

The Rodney delegation has put forward policy that, "all new settlers in New Zealand must take out personal medical insurance cover for a period of 10 years minimum".

Mr Peters said that if reciprocal arrangements existed that allowed Kiwis to get medical cover in a new arrival's country-of-origin, they would not need insurance.

Community leaders condemn 'bogus' witch doctors, call for investigation

Auckland's Indian community leaders have called for an investigation into how so-called Hindu witch doctors have been able to work in New Zealand, while condemning local Indian media for allowing such practices to be advertised in their products.

Around 20 people gathered for a community meeting in Mt Roskill, Auckland, this afternoon to tackle the issue of witch doctors targeting the vulnerable in their community.

It comes after fears were raised of so-called 'witch doctors' and 'healers' in south Auckland who have charged thousands of dollars in return for promised financial fortunes and love-life successes that don't eventuate.

Speakers at today's meeting condemned the practice, saying many of the 'astrologers' were targeting vulnerable people.

They called on those in the Hindu community to avoid using the services of so-called priests, witch doctors and astrologers.

Disappointment as TPPA talks break down

Trade Minister Tim Groser says he is disappointed a landmark free-trade pact stumbled after talks broke down in Hawaii.

Negotiations among 12 Pacific nations failed to reach a conclusion.

"Good progress was made this week, but a number of challenging issues remain, including intellectual property and market access for dairy products", Mr Groser said.

"We will continue to work toward a successful conclusion. This is about getting the best possible deal for New Zealand, not a deal at any cost."

Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations are aimed at erasing most tariffs and other barriers to trade and investment among participants.

It would also clarify and standardize trade rules, making it easier for companies to sell goods and services in the Pacific Rim.

The wide-ranging discussions have addressed tariffs on autos, rice and dairy products, as well as intellectual property protections for pharmaceuticals.

UFO sighting has Wellington in a spin

A Wellington man is in awe after spotting an extra-terrestrial object in the sky over Lyall Bay this morning.

Alex Greig said he often visited Lyall Bay Beach along Wellington's southern coast with his wife, but this morning an unusual shaped orb caught his eye.

"This morning we were walking along the beach... and having our morning little hot chocolate, and there it was, the UFO.

"We both went wow! It was amazing having that totally circular big, big, big cloud just sitting there, it was like a Brent Wong painting."

Mr Greig said he had never seen anything quite like it before, and was almost convinced it was something extra-terrestrial.

"I'm still denying everyone saying it is just a cloud. Just the size of it, it was sitting by itself on a reasonably peaceful day... how does something like that form itself above the edge between the water and the land."

The answer was simple, MetService meteorologist Emma Blades said.

Legal challenge to be lodged surrounding TPP

A legal challenge will be lodged in the High Court next week over the secrecy around the Trans Pacific Partnership negotiations.

Outspoken TPPA critic Professor Jane Kelsey was met with a blanket refusal when she made an Official Information Act request to Trade Minister Tim Groser back in January.

She made the request on the back of a decision from the EU Ombudsman that the consequences of a deal being discussed between the EU and the US, Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), were so great that the people of Europe needed to see much more detail, and produced a long list of what needed to be produced.

When her OIA request was denied, the Minister's refusal had to be reviewed by the Ombudsman before any court action could be lodged. Professor Kelsey only received that Ombudsman's report on Wednesday - four and a half months later.

Tiny Terror – Arizona Town Terrorized by Packs of Stray Chihuahuas

I always thought Chihuahuas were pretty harmless, but apparently they can be quite vicious in large numbers. The residents of Maryvale, a small town in Arizona, can certainly vouch for the fact. The town is filled with stray pooches that are terrorizing children and defecating all over the place.

Thomas Sowell: Both parties irresponsible in dealing with immigration issues

People who entered the United States illegally may be called “undocumented” in politically correct circles, but what is all too well documented is the utter irresponsibility of both political parties in dealing with immigration issues.
