New Zealand Killing Fields: Carnage Intensifies

Posted by te2ataria on October 31, 2009

You need more than 9 lives to survive driving in New Zealand

You could be the best driver in the world; you could even take your car with you to New Zealand to avoid renting a fatally defective car there. But surviving the drunk, drugged and suicide-drivers on the country’s death roads is an entirely different matter.

DOUBLE FATAL CRASH: The Ford Econovan was seen being driven erratically before it crossed the centreline and smashed head-on into an oncoming car on a Hawke’s Bay bridge on State Highway 50 near Taradale early today . Photo: NZPA. Image may be subject to copyright!

On New Zealand Death Roads you could be killed by

  • The police giving chase to handbag snatchers
  • 50+ year-old women unhappy with their miserable lives, and back from a disappointing sex tourism trip
  • The average New Zealander driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol, ecstasy and methamphetamines, especially ‘P’
  • 12 year-old drivers drunk out of their tiny, stupid brains

The van seen in the photo, carrying seven people, all between 16 and 19, was driven by a 16-year-old girl who had been drinking, police said.

It crossed the centreline and smashed head-on into an oncoming car on a Hawke’s Bay bridge on State Highway 50 near Taradale early today.

Three occupants, two males and a female, were catapulted from the van over the bridge into the Tutaekuri River about 15m below.

The two males, aged 19 and 17, were found dead in the shallow water under the bridge, while the woman was found on the riverbank with critical injuries.

An 18-year-old male passenger in the van was in a critical condition in the intensive care unit.

A 17-year-old female and a 17-year-old male were in a serious condition, and an 18-year-old male and a 17-year-old female were in a stable condition. More …

YOU could be the occupant(s) of the next on-coming car that a drunk, drugged New Zealand teen driver or an old suicide-driver smashes their vehicle into. Do you feel lucky? Well do ya?

Meet NZ’s Michelangelo

Posted by te2ataria on October 30, 2009

Meet Michelangelo’s NZ Reincarnation and his David [The Shithead, actually]

Nick smith Head in cow manureArtist Sam Mahon sculpture of Nick Smith’s head out of cow manure is for sale on TradeMe. Image may be subject to cowpee-right.

ACC and Environment Minister Nick Smith head was crafted cow manure by  New Zealand’s poo artist Sam Mahon.

The sculpture is  a 3D rendition of Dr Nick Smith and is called “Nick Smith in Shit,” available for sale on New Zealand’s version of eBay called TradeMe, where it was described as “light and hollow and highly polished.”

The sale will end November 6. [Hurry!]

The “Shithead” sits on a steel stand on display at the COCA Gallery in Christchurch. [Where else!]

Mahon was introduced as a Canterbury painter, printmaker and sculptor, usually working in bronze.

He has also written three books, including  My Father’s Shadow, which is  about his father Justice Peter Mahon, who was the Royal Commissioner into the Mt Erebus air disaster that let Air New Zealand off the hook.

Lighthearted gossip has it that the artist is crafting the head of PM John Key and his entire cabinet in human feces, however he is said to be having difficulty keeping Mr Key’s enormous nose in one piece.

Air NZ should have commissioned Sam Mahon to craft their “Sculpture of Error and Incompetence!”  He would have had a unique slant!

Welcome to the Raw Sewage Club

Posted by te2ataria on October 29, 2009

The Naked Truth?

New Zealand Towns are Sinking in Raw Sewage

There’s only so much untreated sewage you can dump at the sea, before it rises up filling your boots, as it were.

A knee-deep sewage spill in Palmerston North has ruined two cars and left a city family wondering why nobody was warned to stay away from the river that flowed down their street.

Judith Deane-Freeman, who lives at Escort Grove, said the spill was so high it filled her gumboots and leaked through her two Toyota cars parked on the roadside.

“I waded out to retrieve my cars. The water was lapping into them,” she said.

Ms Deane-Freeman was surprised when her cars were towed away and written off by her insurance company on Tuesday, just hours after the spill, which was caused by a Palmerston North wastewater treatment plant malfunction.

The untreated sewage had burst out of a manhole filling Escort Grove in  a radius 80 meters.

Ms Deane-Freeman hopes Palmerston North City Council will pay the insurance excess on her vehicles.

Another Saudi National Killed in New Zealand

Posted by te2ataria on October 29, 2009

Why Do Foreigners Sign their Kids Death Warrants by Sending them to New Zealand to Learn English?

It’s all but Double Dutch, Incoherent, Pigeon English with a Chronically Diseased Accent Spoken Here!

Police released details of the Saudi national killed on State Highway 2 near Waihi on Monday. He  was Saleh Adels Faidah, 21, an English language student in New Zealand. The other 7 students traveling with him in the rental ‘mini-van,’ almost certainly a defective and unroadworthy vehicle, sustained mild to moderate injuries.

The other seven people in the van were described as four French nationals, two Germans, and a Spaniard.

This incident comes almost exactly one year to the day when another Saudi student, 25-year-old Fahad Alsalmah, was shot and killed by New Zealand police.

John Key Goes to Japan

Posted by te2ataria on October 28, 2009

Headline: ‘Key courts Japanese tourists in Tokyo’

Prime Minister John Key donned his tourism minister’s hat in central Tokyo today to promote the rugby World Cup and try to boost flagging numbers of Japanese visitors to New Zealand.

Key attended the formal opening of Tourism New Zealand’s giant inflatable rugby ball in front of the Tokyo Tower… a 25m long, 17m wide and 13m high inflatable ball [yes bigger than the size of his ugly nose.] Japan is New Zealand’s fifth largest market for visitor arrivals.

On a per-person basis, Japanese are highest spending visitors with spending an average $4,698 per trip, compared with Australia at ($2,372), the US ($3,552) and the UK ($4006).  But arrivals from Japan have been declining since 2004. [Perhaps because Japanese tourists are sick and tired of being defecated on.]

Top 10 things John Key should say to lure the Japanese to New Zealand

Kayo-with-family-2
Kayo Matsuzawa, 29,  was murdered in New Zealand, on September 11, 1998. Kayo was born in a small fishing village in Yamagata prefecture, Japan. She has been described by her family and friends as a vibrant and outgoing young woman who loved making lots of friends. Her naked and partially decomposed body was found in a locked cupboard near the stairwell of the Centrecourt building in downtown Auckland 10 days later. Her killer has never been caught.

# 10. If you’re too afraid of traveling to New Zealand, please consider making a donation of about NZ$4,698 to my government.

# 9. Fewer foreigners are killed in New Zealand than Iraq.

# 8. If Japanese women traveled in groups of eight or more they would be less likely to get mugged,  raped or murdered while visiting New Zealand.

# 7. If anyone in New Zealand asked you where you came from, don’t tell them you’re Japanese.

# 6. In the last 12 months, New Zealanders have murdered, raped, maimed … more Chinese, Koreans, Thais and Filipinos than Japanese visitors.

# 5. If Japanese tourists didn’t resist while they are being raped or mugged, they’d be less likely to receive serious injuries, or murdered.

# 4. More Japanese are murdered, killed on the roads, raped …  in Japan than in New Zealand.

# 3. It was an Aussie who killed Kayo Matsuzawa.

# 2. Less than 10 percent of Japanese visitors are murdered, killed on our roads, left in the snow to die, gang-raped, mugged, seriously assaulted or robbed in New Zealand.

# 1. You’re more likely to be killed while flying to our [sic] country  on an Air New Zealand plane, than being murdered by Kayo Matsuzawa’s killer.

Investing in New Zealand?

Posted by te2ataria on October 28, 2009

sent by a former investor

You Ought to Have Your Head Examined!

IF you’re so stupid as to invest in New Zealand securities, buy NZ dollar, or invest in New Zealand companies, then you deserve losing everything

Between Bernie Madoff and New Zealand, the former would have been a safer investment risk.

A US court has ordered two New Zealand incorporated companies to pay US$40 million (NZ$53.3 million) to 200 US

dollar-nz
As Fake as Sir Ed! Your NZ dollar may soon be worth about 20 percent of its current “value.”

The company, First Capital Savings & Loan,  is owned by an entity called Overseas Capital, most likely a shell company purchased on-line for about $250, which has a director in Panama  but it’s ultimately owned by a Tauranga woman, Joan-Lesley Hansford-Jensen, a former prostitute, turned investment banker.

Investors had filed a federal law suit alleging losses of US$40 million over investments with Lowrance and his company, according to the Associated Press.

The shell companies come with a sole director, in this case  Jeff Lowrance.  Overseas Capital and another New Zealand incorporated company, Swiss Providence – now struck off – are defendants in the case.

The investors had opened overseas foreign currency exchange accounts with hopes of 7 per cent monthly returns. They say Lowrance and his company failed to make live market trades, transferred money from one client’s account to another to keep up the appearance of earnings, and used proceeds for personal gain and other business ventures, including an alternative newspaper Lowrance started called USA Tomorrow.

Wanda Howey-Fox, who represents the investors, told AP the scheme was “a small version” of a Bernard Madoff-style Ponzi scheme.

She said some investors opened accounts with US$10,000 and others put in as much as US$750,000.

Chief Judge Karen Schreier of the US District Court in South Dakota ruled in favor of the investors on their claims of  “fraud in the inducement, fraudulent mismanagement of accounts, and breach of contract.”

As Lowrance and his associated entities have not responded to the claims, the investors were entitled to “entry of default judgment in their favor”, the judge said, signaling that investors to also apply for costs and  damages.

Thank you ma’am but how would you recover the money?

The original lawsuit sought interest, US$50 million from Lowrance, US$50 million from his other business entities and US$150 million in punitive damages.

FAT CHANCE!

The Herald spoke to Hansford-Jensen’s husband, Darryl Jensen, a Tauranga taxi firm owner, in March.

Mr Jensen said he was responsible for setting up the companies his wife was a director of. He was aware of First Capital Savings & Loan but could not say what it did.

To The Mentally-Retarded Investors:

TEAA Sez: There’s no great magic to investing wisely. Count the number of boxes of poisoned kiwi fruits, and the number of sheep with atypical scrapie, then ask yourself who/where the hell they’re gonna find the 7% interest rate to pay you …

NZ sheep found with atypical scrapie

Posted by te2ataria on October 28, 2009

Aa European reader helped with this page

Global Food Safety Alert  Bulletin # 31 –

Warning: Do NOT Consume NZ Meat or Dairy Products

Deadly New Zealand Meat and Farm Produce Enter Nightmare Level

Belgian Food Scientists Find NZ Sheep with Atypical Scrapie

Atypical scrapie, also known as Nor 98, a brain condition, has been found by Belgian food specialist in a sheep’s brain reportedly sent from New Zealand for tests.

New Zealand biosecurity “food safety and trade officials” say atypical scrapie is not exactly the same as the classical scrapie brain disease.

They said there were no implications for human health, or livestock “wastage” and there should not be any trade repercussions — as long as there was no confusion between the brain disease, classical scrapie, which is not found in New Zealand, and the condition, atypical scrapie.

[However, the blog challenges the New Zealand biosecurity officials to eat parts of the infected animals on a live TV show to prove their point!]

Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry principal international adviser on animal health Dr Stuart MacDiarmid said the detection did not change New Zealand’s status of being scrapie-free.

[If that doesn’t, then nothing would!!]

“Every country that has conducted sufficient surveillance for atypical scrapie/Nor 98 has found it in their flocks,” he said.

This included most countries in Scandinavia and the European Union, Britain, and North America.

“There is no evidence that atypical scrapie/Nor 98 can be transmitted naturally to other animals or to people, or that it in any way affects people,” he said.

However, the disease has been transmitted between species in laboratory tests when infected tissue was injected into another animal’s brain.

Earlier this year it was reported two Cheviot sheep sent to Britain as part of a New Zealand flock, and a ewe born to two other Cheviots in the “closed” flock and kept from contact with overseas sheep, had developed atypical scrapie.

In February 2009 the British scientists reported that the disease most likely originated from within the New Zealand flock, which meant that New Zealand animals most probably had the atypical scrapie.

Spin the Free-Trade Bottle

Posted by te2ataria on October 27, 2009

sent by a reader [edited by TEAA]

And sign a deal with biggest idiots on the bloc

When someone like John Key welcomes the signing of a new trade deal, you can bet your bottom dollar that the other party is shafted, significantly.

Nijab Razak - key - reuters
Nijab Razak PM of Malaysia and John Key the honorary Israeli consul in New Zealand doubling as NZ PM. It’s the gentleman’s agreement for the details that cannot be written in the cobnreact; they just shake on it. Photo: Reuters. Image may be subject to copyright.

Trade Minister Tim Groser signed New Zealand’s seventh free-trade agreement (FTA), more appropriately FAT, in Kuala Lumpur last night.

Starting 2010, almost all tariffs between the two countries will be phase-out under the new agreement.

Where else can New Zealand dump the tainted agricultural and dairy produce and poisoned kiwifruits, but in the third world, backward, backwater countries?

Tainted, poisonous produce, and defective products and services:

Kiwi exporters will get improved market access in agriculture, dairy, manufactured goods, and services such as education, environment, management consulting and veterinary services.

Time to export the poisonous kiwifruits, tainted butter, cheese, and Fonterra-San-Lu grade milk powder DUTY FREE!

Time to also remove the ridiculous 50 per cent tariffs from New Zealand whiteware. Fisher & Paykel and the likes need room to grow. Let export the exploding refrigerators and instantaneous-combustion cookers and ovens beyond our borders.

Replenish the import of “black” and “brown” students to be raped, beaten and murdered.

Let’s boost the number of foreign fee-paying b*stards to New Zealand. Malaysia’s 15,000 “darkies” in New Zealand not enough!

Why not send the lot of the little f++kers to Christchurch?

Finally, let’s take the dumbbells to cleaners

To do that we’ll tell the “third-wits” to relax their tough rules for foreign investment, or the whole deal is off!

Why should wine be excluded?

Malaysia has refused to include any alcohol-related products under the deal, although the wine trade is worth only about $1.5m a year.

Don’t give me any of that horse manure about religious sensitivities, Malaysians are kitchen drinkers! NZ wine exporters must NOT lose out.

Key said the agreement was another step in forging better trade and other links with Southeast Asia.

It’s John Key’s “other links” Malaysian should be afraid of.

“From New Zealand’s point of view, this is a fast-growing market – it’s a billion-dollar market that has expanded by 80 per cent in the last four or five years,” Key said in Kuala Lumpur.

“The NZ-Malaysia FTA is a significant step forward in relations with Malaysia and further evidence of our economic integration with Asia.”

Key said Southeast Asia was a region of dramatic economic growth and presented huge opportunities for New Zealand.

More like dumping opportunities, really.

“This is where the action is … certainly if we’re going to lift exports as a percentage of GDP, the fastest and most effective place to target that growth is Asia.”

What about Human Trafficking?

Can’t write the sex deals in the contract. It’s the gentleman’s agreement; they just shake on it.

Meanwhile,

An Indonesian housemaid has died in a Malaysian hospital, nearly a week after being found beaten and locked in a bathroom at her employers’ home.

“white pride” vigilantes take over Christchurch

Posted by te2ataria on October 26, 2009

sent by a reader [edited by TEAA]

Israeli-connected “white pride” group “patrols” streets of Christchurch, NZ

Right Wing Resistance (RWR), a “white pride” group with direct ties to the state of Israel, says they are patrolling New Brighton streets, Christchurch.

Kyle Chapman

The group says that “the police and the system has all but given up on” parts of the city and that Christchurch is the center of a “white pride” revival.

According to Stormfront.org, a front used by the group, the Israel-supported vigilante group has been performing “crimewatch patrols” aimed at “cutting down on homie [American rap-style] vandalism and muggings that have become common on the east side of CHCH”.

“Shaven-headed, jack-booted, race-based, white power [with an Israeli twist]” and “former” skinhead, National Front leader and Christchurch mayoral candidate Kylie Chapman. His gang will now beat up on Asians students and Polynesians migrants with tacit police blessings.

“The police and the system in general has all but given up on the poor areas and it is left to us to sort this out now,” stormfagots said.

A group member, speaking anonymously to The Press, said “sporadic” patrols had started in New Brighton as early as May 2009, the report said.

“Locals were getting very upset with youths, particularly Polynesian youths, standing over people and vandalising.”

“No doubt people will want to label us skinheads, but that’s just a way for society to put a label on us, put us in a bracket.

“I know … that vigilantism is illegal and it’s frowned upon, but we’re living in modern times, police resources are stretched, and they’re not being able to cover the ground as effectively as they would like.”

 

The group was a white pride group as opposed to white power, he said. “We’re not about going around bashing up Polynesians or Asians.”

Yum Yum Chapman
“Yum Yum Kylie” Chapman, 38, who was previously convicted for fire-bombing a marae [Maori ‘sacred place’ with great cultural significance,] could be facing severe punishment.

The Press said:

Police said they had not heard of the group and denied they had “given up” on New Brighton. Detective Sergeant Andrew Fabish, of the New Brighton police, said it sounded like the group was “trying to get themselves a profile”.

New Brighton Residents Association member George Aorangi Stanley said “boot boys” had been spotted “hanging around looking menacing”.

“I don’t know if you’d consider it patrolling. I just consider them as contributing to the tension.”

Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker said the trend was “unacceptable”.

“I would be disturbed to find out that we had a vigilante approach to security going on.

“Well-meaning amateurs” could easily become “loose cannons”, Parker said.

Anything associated with Chapman and his “brand” would come with “a lot of history attached”, he said.

“I would urge these folk that if [they want to do security], their first point of contact should be the police.”

The initiation ceremonies on WNTube site showed about 12 shaven-headed men in what appeared to be a garage. Black banners with the group’s insignia, a skull over a bent cross, were displayed on the walls.

“The Oath

An oath, titled “Kylie’s oath”, was read and members were “knighted” by a leader with a sword. Long-time white power activist Chapman was involved with the group until he moved to the North Island several months ago.

A newsletter sent by an umbrella group called the Nationalist Alliance said the Right Wing Resistance was the “active organisation of New Zealand”.

“The Christchurch RWR is now the largest Right-wing organisation Christchurch has ever seen. When new branches are set up, it is no longer a couple of people joining but whole crews of men willing to work hard,” their tiny-headed spokesperson boasted

To Asian Students/ Tourists: YOU are Targeted. Don’t Go to Christchurch. Stay Out of New Zealand!

What’s So Fishy about this Dolphin Story?

Posted by te2ataria on October 23, 2009

sent by a reader

What Next, NZ Police Swapping Dead Americans?

First they were married; then barely engaged. One second she was alive;  the next she was dead floating face down on water.

One second she was alive and well, as healthy as a healthy 27-year-old woman can be; almost exactly 5 seconds later she was so dead she was floating face down on the water. Even immediate CPR couldn’t revive her.

In How NZ’s Dolphin Watch EcoTours Make Dolphins Hate Humans

You read: A 27-year-old American woman was killed today while swimming with dolphins in Tory Channel in the Marlborough Sounds, South island, New Zealand.

Local police said the woman was on a ‘Dolphin Watch EcoTours’ trip with her family. She was swimming among dolphins when other swimmers noticed she was floating face down.

Police is on record as reporting that she was traveling with her husband and his mother.

Meanwhile the police, acting in their capacity as the “caring attorneys” for Dan Engelhaupt, the owner of  Dolphin Watch EcoTours, prevented their “client” from making a statement to the press.

The locals, whose livelihood depends on causing stress to the dolphins, declared their interests, too: 

Arrow Water Taxis owner operator Paul Quinn said operators in the area were right behind Mr and Mrs Engelhaupt.

Soon, help arrived from the government:

Provisional autopsy findings from Christchurch coroner Sue Johnson indicate the woman, 27, died of natural causes rather than drowning. Further test results were expected in a few weeks.

Wouldn’t it be a damn shame if the body was cremated by mistake!

Then came reports of the unusual request:

Her family, including her husband and his mother who were travelling with her, asked police not to release the woman’s name.[Actually, it was probably the police trying to figure out what to do next]:

The next day, everything changed:

An America tourist is grieving after the girlfriend who accepted his proposal of marriage died 24 hours later while swimming with dolphins.

Could we also know who the victim was?

Emily May Harper, 27, from Denver, Colorado, is thought to have died from natural causes as she swam in Tory Channel in the Marlborough Sounds on Tuesday.

What about her husband?

Actually, the police lied. Because in the latest version of the story, she wasn’t even married.

Oh!

Her boyfriend Matthew Hawkins proposed to her on Monday and she said ‘yes’.

Mr Hawkins said yesterday he believed his girlfriend was fit and healthy.

And here’s rest of the latest version of this sad love story:

Their last night together was memorable for all the right reasons, he told The New Zealand Herald.

He said they had been walking together at Picton Harbour, watching the lights reflecting off the water.

“I came up to her from behind and gave her a hug, and I said to her, ‘We should get married’. And she said, ‘What, are you serious?’ And I said, ‘Yeah, I think I am’. And then she said, ‘Yes, absolutely’.”

He said he had planned to ask her two days later and she never saw the ring he had bought because it was with his mother.

“I meant to ask her in Auckland, but the setting was just perfect.”

Next morning, the pair sailed out into the Marlborough Sounds with Mr Hawkins’ mother Sandra and brother Andrew on a Dolphin Watch Ecotours vessel.

He said she loved animals and wildlife and was very excited about the dolphin encounter.

“Emily kept giving me a thumbs-up signal while she was in the water.

“I took my eyes off Emily for barely a second, and I saw someone face down in the water.”

He said CPR began immediately but she could not be revived.

10 years for murder, 11 years for stealing murder medals

Posted by te2ataria on October 22, 2009

sent by a reader in Auckland [Edited by TEAA]

War is Murder in Uniform!

NZ law mandates 10 years for murder, 11 years for stealing murder medals

New Zealand imposes a mandatory life sentence for treason and for murder, except in the case of mercy killing or where there is evidence of prolonged and severe abuse [and where the act of treason involves transfer of state secrets to the government of Israel.]

The starting non-parole period for murder is 10 years.

War medals thief jailed 11 years

A man who stole war medals from Waiouru Army Museum has been jailed for 11 years.

The man, who has name suppression, was sentenced to six years in prison for the medals heist and sentenced to a further five years in prison for his role in a “mind-boggling” array of sophisticated fraud.

At the Auckland District Court today [evil] Judge Hubble said the man had stolen “icons of New Zealand culture and history” when he stole the 96 medals.

Those at today’s sentencing included Amanda Upham – the daughter of Victoria Cross recipient Charles Upham.

[…]

Another man charged over the war medals theft is due in court next week.
