GERRIE NEL DID HIS BEST

Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.

I never reply to abuse I receive because I believe it’s your right to express whatever opinion you want. But, as much as I love you guys, in this case, as with Julia Gillard and her attendance at the Royal Commission, many posters missed the point. 

Julia Gillard was not in court and was never going to be tripped up in examination. She was never going to leave the Commission in cuffs, she hasn’t been charged and was merely responding to a subpoena to supply a statement that could be examined. She was not likely to admit fraud. 

Fraud must be proved in a court of law and that is only likely to happen if the Commission’s findings and current Vicpol evidence is sufficient for the DPP to decide to charge her and/or others.

Gillard will eventually need to explain much more than what she offered up to the Commission. There were glaring omissions in her testimony and both the Commission and Vicpol knew it.

Stoljar was setting in stone her evidence that can be dismantled at a later date. 

But I grossly underestimated the polarisation surrounding the Pistorius trial and the white hot anger over Judge Masipa’s decision. I did suggest that many would disagree, but golly, all of you? 

Look, it came down to a decision that was based essentially on Westminster law. 

Under Sharia law Reeva would have been found guilty of going to the toilet without Oscar’s permission but we rely on a fallible Westminster system that has at least, albeit shakily, stood the test of time.

I hear the anger but in the end there was really only one finding Judge Masipa could make. That is not her fault, it’s the fault of the State and it’s preoccupation with a murder 1 conviction when that was never a possibility. 

The State underestimated Judge Masipa and overestimated its ability to emotionally force a confession of intent from Pistorius.

Murder 1 requires both premeditation and intent, and without a witness the court must rely heavily on the evidence of the accused. 

Prosecutor Gerrie Nel, a renowned pit-bull bully, tried desperately to break Pistorius with every method fair and foul. But Pistorius’s story had never altered from the time he had killed her. 

And the fact that he had killed her was never in doubt. 

Nel needed this admission of intent as his case was circumstantial. He never got that admission. Culpable homicide then became the only possible finding any reasonable judge could make.

Whether you or I think there was intent or not is an entirely subjective opinion, it came down to what the State could prove... and it failed to prove anything other than what the defence had already admitted to.

I believe the prosecution arrogantly felt that a little black lady could be emotionally manipulated by an army of whites. But she proved better than that.

Is Pistorius a first grade, gun-wielding, gung-ho, negligent prick? Of course he is and deserves time in jail. But he will not spend time in jail because he is wealthy, privileged and can afford the best of counsel. Surprise surprise, it’s the same case as here in Oz.

Both our systems are based on Westminster justice and you can’t have it both ways, the decision was legally right. Whether it was fair or not should be taken up with our founding fathers.

Justice of any sort is never fair, not even Westminster justice, just ask Lindy Chamberlain, Pauline Hanson or hundreds of others... but it’s all we’ve got.

Obama is insane, as must be his coalition. Can you read Mr Abbott?

"MOSCOW, September 16 (RIA Novosti) – The United States would target Syrian air defenses if they were to go after American planes launching airstrikes against Islamic State (IS) positions in Syria, anonymous senior White House officials said Tuesday, as cited by the Associated Press........."



".....The sad fact is that the Zionist state in Israel, Europe and America, spent millions of dollars supporting the Syrian jihadists while those same terrorists are signing pacts with ISIS. As George Galloway would have said, did those people read Frankenstein—and did they read it to the end?

"But here is something comical (if it is true). The New York Times has reported that President Obama desires “to train Syrian rebels to serve as ground troops against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria…”[5] Saudi Arabia has also been willing to help train the rebels once again.

"Obama said a few days ago that he vowed to destroy ISIS “wherever they exist,” but he thinks that it is not a contradiction for the United States to support the Syrian rebels. If ISIS is “a massive threat,” doesn’t it lead to the logical conclusion that those who sign pacts with ISIS are also “a massive threat”?....."

"Both Iran and Assad have made things hard for the Zionist state recently because they too are willing to fight ISIS.
In fact, Assad himself is a little angry because Washington has not been fully committed to cooperate with him to fight ISIS".

Now it is announced he can even represent South Africa again......he is a freak of nature born with the traits of violence ....should have never been born....EVIL.

well his ex girlfriend and her mum have come out and stated about his violent behaviour towards her...she had a lucky escape.

YOU’RE BEING CONNED AND BRAINWASHED – BY THE POLLITICIANS, AND BY THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA!

ISIS IS US



http://www.veteranstoday.com/2014/09/15/frankenstein-in-iraq-and-syria/



Evidence continues to pile up against the Zionist state. Just recently, the Syrian rebels/jihadists and ISIS signed a non-aggression pact near Damascus which says that

“the two parties will respect a truce until a final solution is found and they promise not to attack each other because they consider the principal enemy to be the Nussayri regime.”[1]

Nussayria, of course,

“is a pejorative term for the Alawite sect, an offshoot of Shiite Islam to which President Bashar Assad belongs. Syria’s armed opposition initially welcomed jihadists including ISIS members in their fight against Assad.”[2]

In other words, there is no serious distinction between the Syrian rebels and ISIS. What’s equally worse is that a Syrian rebel brigade commander made it clear that

“his forces were working with the Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra, al-Qaeda’s official Syrian affiliate — both U.S.-designated terrorist organizations — near the Syrian/Lebanon border.”

The sad fact is that the Zionist state in Israel, Europe and America, spent millions of dollars supporting the Syrian jihadists while those same terrorists are signing pacts with ISIS. As George Galloway would have said, did those people read Frankenstein—and did they read it to the end? .....................


..................

Now that those same political whores are confronted with the true colors of ISIS, they are all scared to death because they think that members of ISIS may have come from America and Europe.[4]

But here is something comical (if it is true). The New York Times has reported that President Obama desires “to train Syrian rebels to serve as ground troops against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria…”[5] Saudi Arabia has also been willing to help train the rebels once again.

Obama said a few days ago that he vowed to destroy ISIS “wherever they exist,” but he thinks that it is not a contradiction for the United States to support the Syrian rebels. If ISIS is “a massive threat,” doesn’t it lead to the logical conclusion that those who sign pacts with ISIS are also “a massive threat”?

dusty, I agree , their current affairs programs are so biased I can not bring myself to watch them, I do check out the 7.00 news as it does have some local news and I also like to see what bullshit they are peddling.

Hi Brian, Just to clarify, in your opinion, you don’t believe
Pistorius thought he MIGHT kill the person behind the door
as he decided to fire off those shots?

Oigle, check this article out if you want an insight into Israel, written by a well respected journalist originally from Australia. John Pilger, he is well aware of allot of what is happening in the world and the manipulation of the MSM
Believe it or not they had him on the 7.30 report one night and Kerry did not like what he had to say.

The answer is as you say to try to wake people up, I believe when a critical mass is reached the spell will be broken, if we create our reality with our thoughts and beliefs and these are constantly hijacked and manipulated we have very little control of what is happening. If you are aware of the deceptions and trickery used by the global elite you use critical thinking when you look at anything that happens in the world you are not under the spell. This is my two bobs worth anyway.

Forget him BR. He is the greatest Abbottopologist on the site! Eventually he will work it out that ASIO and the Government are one and the same and what one says is just parroting the other! (Now standby and wait for Hotrocks to surface!)

BLOEMFONTEIN, South Africa, Sept 16 (Reuters)

A black officer went on a killing rampage at a South African

The lieutenant opened fire with an assault rifle as a
group of soldiers of the First South Africa Infantry
Battalion was on its way to a shooting practice.

A major, a captain and four other soldiers died in the shooting.
Five other white soldiers were injured, one critically,
and were being treated in hospital................................http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/africaandindianocean/southafrica/1349390/South-Africas-white-army-o

INIQUITY UNVEILED: FREEMASONRY
& ORDER OF ILLUMINATI

Part 3: Origin of the Order of Illuminati

I still have trouble linking the Israelis with the Illuminati.
I've ALWAYS thought of them as the Good Guys and Under Dogs
Or am I NOW becoming a Sheeple as well???

The main thing is they were warned - job done, and cannot say - "why didn't you tell us" after the event.

Greetings Sheeples.....
OT to Lighten up your Dark Day...
Who better to Illuminate your Day than...........

It is well known that there exists a conspiracy to dominate this world and this is commonly attributed to a group called the Illuminati. While it is rare to get an insider perspective on how these secretive groups actually operate and perceive mankind, it can be done if you find the right sources.
http://www.collective-evolution.com/2013/09/05/insiders-speak-out-the-secret-workings-of-the-illuminati/

Seriously.....
There area few (too few) people who can see the "Behind the scenes -- manipulations" of the Illuminati - but WHAT can we actually DO about it???
Try to WARN our fellow Flock ? Brick Wall.
Do we just have the satisfaction of eventually saying "We Told you So"
NOT very satisfying mate.

Greetings Fellow Crackpots!
How come you blokes haven't got scores of Sheeple screaming for your blood??
You watch - I'll mention the Illuminanti and they'll be all over me like a rash.
