A Sticky Business: Whittaker’s

October 13, 2015

Originally posted on longwhitekid:

Presumably an advertising campaign for the Easter period showing a recent addition: that New Zealand classic hokey pokey, which is more often seen in ice cream, but reconfigured as a chocolate flavour. 


Whittaker’s is now one of New Zealand’s most popular (and enduring) brands, having been around for over 120 years – if you count it in its most primitive initial form. I love this brand, and enjoy it regularly. There’s so many things about the product that has appeal besides it’s “home-grown” quality, packaging, and advertising.

Giving you the (sticky) finger: the only Whittaker’s advert I’ve ever found. Even then there was a company ethic with focus on local labour and supplies. Evening Post, 1932.


However the essential one is that Whittaker’s has a truly unique flavour that comes from their personal supervision over the entire process – from beginning to end, or as they have dubbed it –…

Cosmic Corruption

October 10, 2015

Originally posted on Russian Defense Policy:

Main Military Prosecutor Sergey Fridinskiy gave Interfaks an interview several weeks ago in which he described generally improved crime statistics in the Armed Forces.  But he also called the scale of corruption in the military nothing short of “cosmic.”

Fridinskiy told the news service the army’s crime situation is stable and even improving.  Crimes by servicemen are down 16 percent, and there are fewer crimes committed by officers.  There’s a constantly growing number of military units where no legal violations law are registered.  Last year fewer soldiers suffered violence at the hands of their fellow soldiers.  But the army’s top law enforcer doesn’t think he’ll run out of work any time soon:

“In particular areas, for example, like saving budget resources allocated for military needs, or corrupt activities, the crime level, as before, is significant.  And we’re still far from ridding ourselves of nonregulation relations.”

More than 1,000 military officials were prosecuted for corruption, including 18 general officers — one-third of…

How All Presidents Are Related To King John

September 28, 2015

Originally posted on REALITY BLOG:

In my attempts to expose the genealogical “royal” bloodline – the passing of pure blood type as opposed to mere genealogical “family tree” relation – I came across a researcher from Ancestry.com named Tim Dowling. On his site, and reproduced below, Mr. Dowling has connected the trees of all U.S. Presidents to the Plantagenet King John circa 12oo A.D.

DIRECTIONS: To see the full charts or tree for each president, click on the “Relationship to King John” link below, and then on the next page click either the “tree” link or the link below that which looks like this:

This presentation will hopefully satisfy those who were not satisfied with my previous presentation of mere cousin relationships between all U.S. Presidents, which can partially be found at this link: http://www.geni.com/blog/look-whos-related-george-washington-and-all-the-presidents-325451.html

Corbyn, Shearer, and Campaigning Against Austerity

Corbyn's first act after winning was to join a rally supporting refugees Corbyn’s first act after winning was to join a rally supporting refugees

The left-wing MP Jeremy Corbyn was catapulted to leadership of the British Labour Party over the weekend”, winning 59.9% of the vote after starting the race as a 100/1 outsider.  Corbyn’s anti-austerity campaign has challenged the Blairite establishment founded on copying and extending the pro-business, neoliberal policies of Thatcher and the Tories.  The waves have been felt far afield, even here.

Corybn’s win has sent shock waves through the British establishment. This isn’t how politics is supposed to work. He’s appealing to working people’s opposition to austerity; he is a known extra-parliamentary activist and campaigner and drew on social movements and the exciting sense that an alternative to pro-business politics exists; and he’s connecting. He wiped out the Blairites in Labour’s race. No wonder the knives are out for him in the newspapers – from…

Ukraine Commemorates V-Day by Waging War and Honoring Nazi Criminals

US-installed Ukrainian fascists commemorated Poroshenko’s established victory in Europe Day of Remembrance by vowing to “destroy Moscow,” free its people, and let them “shape their own future.”

ScreenHunter_1895 May. 13 08.57

Ukrainian ultranationalists attending a May 8 commemoration included 14th SS Waffen Grenadier division veterans, Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) members, and Nazi-infested volunteer battalions involved in what they call “the Russian-Ukrainian war.”

Svoboda party overt Nazis participated. Their slogan is “Ukraine for the Ukrainians” – meaning ethnically pure, free of Jews, Russians, Poles and others not wanted, by extermination or other means.

Party member Yuri Sirotyuk called war on Russia Ukraine’s historic mission. “I believe that if we truly want it, we will do it,” he blustered.

Obama’s Ukrainian allies are over-the-top lunatics like Sirotyuk and likeminded fascists wanting war, not peace.

Prime minister Arseny Yatsenyuk  referring to World War II accused Soviet Russia of invading Germany.

Nazi collaborator Stepan Bandera is honored as…

Will John Key Blame Labour When The First Bomb Goes Off?

I believe that the millions of people uprooted from their war torn countries are what they say they are: Desperate refugees who just want peace.

I also believe that we are ruled by psychopaths who are making a killing (no pun intended) out of the wars they are starting left right and centre. I believe further more that we are manipulated by a multitude of false flag attacks designed to keep us in fear.

In fear and loathing of Muslims, Arabs, Persians, Turks. Brown people in general.

In February 2015 ISIS announced (at least according to our MSM which seems remarkably happy to be an ISIS mouth piece) they would be using a 500.000 refugee crisis to infiltrate Europe and the West. For those of you who want to know more about the ISIS timeline and how they came into existence, here is a good article spelling it out.
