NEW BOOK: TWISTING THE TREATY

3Article by Tim Wikiriwhi.

Syndicated from Eternal Vigilance.

Six notable authors have just published a challenging new book about the way the Treaty of Waitangi has been twisted to be greatly in favor of Maori tribes over the last thirty years. These distortions include the rewriting of our [New Zealand’s] history by political “historians,” the never-ending so called Treaty Claim process, and the privatization and relinquishment of our foreshore and seabed, as well as our native flora and fauna, and the rights that apply to our sea fishery.

If you are interested in these matters, then this book, Twisting the Treaty – a Tribal Grab for Wealth and Power provides readily readable discussion on these topics. The Cover below.

2Warning – the book is factual and is not politically correct; one of its charms in my view.
The book is available at a retail cost of $40. It has 414 pages and 16 photo pages, but, with 16 self-contained chapters, it does not have to be read all at once.

Where to obtain it:
1.  Good bookstores throughout NZ,
2.  Write to Tross Publishing, P O Box 22 143, Khandallah, Wellington, 6441 with your order and cheque,
3.  Also see our website, www.trosspublishing.co.nz for info and to order online.

Enjoy your reading.

KNOCK-OFF HANDBAGS AND MEDIA PIRACY FUND TERRORISM

325634Article by Mark I Rasskazov, Editor in Chief.

Forget drugs, forget oil, forget wealthy religious extremists — the fiat currency of terrorism is knock-off handbags and bootleg DVDs: so says a source I’ve spoken to who shall remain anonymous.  According to this source, these kinds of items, along with knock-off Tiffanys’ jewelry items and other counterfeited luxury items, are the primary means by which criminals and terrorists get their money from «Point A» to «Point B.»

It seems unbelievable.  It’s certainly one of the most under-reported aspects of the criminal world, if true.

So I did some research.

DVD RAROS BOOTLEGRonald K. Noble of Interpol via the LA Times: «The global trade in counterfeit goods is estimated at $400 billion to $450 billion a year.»  Later in the article, he is quoted as saying that: «Counterfeit cigarette trafficking by paramilitary groups in Northern Ireland and profits from counterfeit CDs and other goods being funneled to Hezbollah in the Mideast.»

Hitha Prabhakar, a noted investigative journalist, wrote an entire book on the subject.  At the beginning of the book, she quotes a review of it by one Dana Thomas: «Counterfeiting is one of the least-acknowledged, most-damaging crimes of our time. In Black Market Billions, Hitha exposes this nefarious world of the violent syndicates and the crimes they commit—human trafficking, forced child labor, money laundering—and discovers that the profits fund even worse acts such as terrorism.  You’ll never look at a fake Louis Vuitton handbag the same way again.»

It seems the issue is important enough to have garnered the attention of Congress, as well.

terrorismIt has been put to me in the following manner: «You cannot board a cruise ship with more than $9,999.99; if you want to transport $10,000.00, the way you do it: you take a bunch of knock-off hand-bags and sell them to a contact in the destination country.  Every time we catch a terrorist, he’s holed up with weapons, explosives, and tens of thousands of bootleg CDs.»

It seems heroin is for amateurs.  The pros deal in faux Versace, apparently.
