Genocidal Ruling Class in Japan Might Have Sentenced Tens of Thousands of People to Death (Again!)

Conspiracy? What conspiracy!? Japan covid-19 cases suddenly surge just a day after Tokyo Olympics finally postponed

Mysterious ‘explosion’ in coronavirus infections day after hopes of 2020 Olympics faded

Even the corporate media sound disturbed!!!

“A comment piece in the Japan Times [the English language apologist for Abe’s gangster party, LDP] said there were conspiracy theories circulating about alleging a widespread cover up, that people are dying in their homes, untested and untreated and given false death certificates.” [As with the initial coverup with nuclear meltdowns at Fukushima, the above “theories” are entirely likely!]

Japan claims it can process up to 6,000 tests per day

Martin Fritz (DW-Tokyo) 25.03.2020
https://www.dw.com/en/coronavirus-how-japan-keeps-covid-19-under-control/a-52907069

“The contrast to Europe could hardly be greater. Japan so far has 10 outbreak clusters, with close to 1,200 confirmed cases and 43 deaths to the coronavirus as of March 24. Only a few dozen new infections are reported every day. These figures should have exploded — after all, Japan is very densely populated, with the world’s highest density of senior citizens. And it’s in close contact with nearby China, where the disease originated: in January, some 925,000 Chinese people traveled to Japan, while another 89,000 made the trip in February.”

The low numbers of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Japan initially aroused suspicion that the government was covering up the truth.

“After the Fukushima nuclear disaster [in 2011], the government initially refused to admit the reactor meltdowns,” said Barbara Holthus, a sociologist with the German Institute for Japanese Studies in Tokyo. “Today, there remains a great distrust of official statements.”

“Despite having the capacity to make 6,000 diagnostic tests per day, Japan has only tested around 14,000 swabs to date — 20 times fewer than neighboring South Korea, which has been hit hard by the pandemic. Only patients with the most severe symptoms are tested, said Masahiro Kami, a virologist at the Medical Governance Research Institute. That, he added, means the number of unreported cases is very high.”

Political scientist Koichi Nakano said Prime Minister Shinzo Abe likely wanted to present Japan as a safe country in order not to lose the Summer Olympics — though the International Olympic Committee ended up postponing the event anyway.

“The low numbers of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Japan initially aroused suspicion that the government was covering up the truth.”

Koichi Nakano, a political analyst at Sophia University in Tokyo, told Japan  Times: “You can also see the Olympics behind Abe’s hands-off approach to the virus.

“The recorded infections and tests are bizarrely low.”

Will Ripley of CNN reporting from Japan:

“For the 5th day in a row — Japan reports its biggest daily jump in coronavirus cases. 194 new cases on Saturday alone. Total infections (counting cruise ship) 2,200. Death toll 62. Japan is on the verge of a state of emergency & officials warn Tokyo could lockdown.”

“for a long time … Life here in Japan continued relatively normally, until the announcement that the Olympics were postponed, the government has dramatically changed its tone. It’s on the verge of declaring a state of emergency, and now we are seeing some late March snowfall. Mother nature is doing something the government has not been able to get Japanese citizens to do thus far– stay inside!”

“The health ministry says, as of Friday [March 27] just 27,000 people have been tested — 27,000 people in a country of 125 million — leaving many in Japan to wonder how many cases are really out there!”

“A lot of people here are also wondering … why only now, why after the Olympic announcement is Tokyo saying it’s on the verge of declaring a lockdown…?”

Project Mars: Neutralize the omniciders before they commit you to extinction!

Delivering Cosmic Justice

YOU don’t need a military force or WMD to change the course of events. It’s done through projection of intense emotions–a burning desire to help save the planet and the lifeforms worth saving–delivered with laser sharp focus!

WE have triggered into existence major events, thereby intervening in ongoing situations through thought projection multiple times in the past, especially since 2010, with a success rate of 100 percent.

A permanent channel exists between your strong emotions and the awesome cosmic forces that ensure the existence of everything…

Plug into the forces and let your innermost feelings be known!

Starship Earth Global Vigils

Throughout 2019, we held monthly vigils to express our agony and heartbreak and seek cosmic justice against the omniciders through thought projection (see links below) knowing that nothing short of major change-making, albeit cataclysmic, events would stop the omniciders.

Then…

Nature’s Defenses Designed the “Perfect Virus“ to Allow a Pause for Refection…

StarShip Earth Meditative Vigil 2020

The Visiting Scholars Group will be holding a meditative vigil throughout 2020 and beyond, in an effort to neutralize the omniciders.

Witness with your mind’s eye the wanton destruction of Starship Earth as being perpetrated by the omniciders, and let the overwhelming feeling of agony, sorrow and pain arising from the enormous loss touch your inner world…

Project onto the terrorists—the super-wealthy class, their puppet governments, all other enablers and family members, collectively the Axis of Evil—the pain and suffering caused by the ongoing ecological holocaust and wanton ecocide, militarism and war economy, poverty and inequality, racism and social exclusion…

Let your focused thought invoke tsunamis of emotions within you. Project the waves onto the omniciders…

The Vigil is being held anytime, any place for as long as possible, throughout 2020.

We invite everyone to join us!

World’s 24 richest people own as much as the bottom 50 percent, or about 3.9 billion people!

A Message from Nature’s Defense Forces (NDeF) on Olympic Games

Posted by te2ataria on March 25, 2020

Sent by Visiting Scholars Group

To the Omniciders and their enablers who make money from the Olympics and similar acts of ecocide/omnicide:

“Ready and Willing to Turn Your Faux World Upside Down”

7.8 magnitude earthquake near Russia, Japan Time: 2020-03-25 02:49:21 (UTC)

A magnitude 7.8 earthquake has occurred in the Sea of Okhotsk, at a depth of 56.6 km, between Russia and Japan.

The US Geological Survey later downgraded the earthquake to a 7.5 magnitude.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center initially warned tsunami waves could affect areas within a thousand kilometers of the quake’s epicenter.

The earthquake was felt as far south as the Chubu region, central Japan.

On Saturday, Carl asked:

“What if the criminal monkeys decided to go ahead with the games, despite the risks?”

On Sunday, “Visiting Scholar 114” replied:

“A mega surprise waiting in the Tokyo Bay area ready to make waves, just in case.”

Meanwhile, the blog moderators, who’ve been advised on the cause of the March 11, 2011 Tōhoku earthquake (Great East Japan Earthquake (東日本大震災) and tsunami, described as a warning to the Japanese police for their insolent conduct in a certain incident, had quietly wondered what would be the chances of another display of “fire power”?

COVID-19 — March 24

Posted by te2ataria on March 24, 2020

Data, ideas and links provided by multiple contributors

The First Wave of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

The coronavirus COVID-19 is affecting at least 196 countries and territories around the world and scores of cruise ships (international conveyances) including The Diamond Princess, Holland America’s Zaandam, MS Braemar, the Grand Princess, the Regal Princess, the World Dream, the Ruby Princess…

Selected Headlines:

  • Dozens of countries are under complete or partial lockdown including the US, UK, Italy, Spain, France, S Africa, India…
  • Global stocks plunged again today.  Dow Jones Index fell to 18,591.93, down -582.05 points (-3.04%), at official close 3/23/2020|
  • More than 750 million people across India are under lockdown, nearly everyone under travel restrictions
  • NYC’s mayor: Our hospitals have enough supplies to get through this week only.

New Zealand to go into month-long lockdown to fight coronavirus

Vagina One brings in ‘the most significant restrictions on New Zealanders’ movements in modern history’ as cases rise

A government that can’t provide clean drinking water to all of its citizens:

“I say to all New Zealanders: the government will do all it can to protect you. Now I’m asking you to do everything you can to protect all of us. Kiwis – go home.”

Aussies NEVER cease to amaze us!!!

2,700 people were let off the Ruby Princess cruise ship

On Thursday, the Ruby Princess cruise ship docked in Sydney harbour after an 11-day round trip to New Zealand.

“Despite the ship previously logging 158 cases of illness on an earlier voyage, all 2,700 passengers on board were allowed to disembark at Sydney’s Circular Quay and return to their homes in New South Wales and interstate.”

Any wonder the NSW health minister is called Brad Hazzard and the Australian PM Scott Moron-son!?

Made in CHINA

India: A good Indian is one under lockdown!?

COVID-19 cases in India have surged prompting lockdown across the country.

“With lockdown in around 550 districts…. coronavirus spread has infected over 492 people so far. Around 30 states/UTs have been placed under complete lockdown. […] After break on passenger trains across India, Aviation Ministry said that all domestic flights will also be grounded from Wednesday midnight. PM Narendra Modi has appealed citizens to take the lockdown seriously [like they do with rape] and said it is a lifetime challenge that the world is facing.”

COVID-19 : A Pause Before the Storm

Posted by te2ataria on March 20, 2020

Sent by Visiting Scholars Group

Nature’s Defenses Designed the “Perfect Virus to Allow a Pause for Refection…

WE strongly oppose the anthropogenic assault on Earth, the acts of ecocide including tourism, militarism, mass movement of people (Chinese New Year mass migration, Olympic games…), air travel, cruise ship holidays, fossil fuel consumption, GHG emissions, air pollution, manufacture of ephemeral junk… which are leading to the extinction of life on Earth–omnicide.

Throughout 2019 we held  monthly vigils to express our agony and heartbreak and seek cosmic justice against the omniciders through thought projection (see links below).

Delivering Cosmic Justice

YOU don’t need a military force or WMD to change the course of events. It’s done through projection of intense emotions–a burning desire to help save the planet and the lifeforms worth saving–delivered with laser sharp focus!

WE have triggered into existence major events, thereby intervening in ongoing situations through thought projection, many times in the past, especially since 2010, with a success rate of 100 percent.

A permanent channel exists between your thoughts, emotions and the awesome cosmic forces that ensure the existence of everything…

And you?

You’re all in binary territory now: Participate in the ongoing omnicide, OR prevent it from happening by any means possible.

There are no grey areas. Burying your head in the sand makes you a legitimate and deserving target for nature, as she fights back in the anthropogenic war waged against her. She takes no prisoners.

Nature’s defense forces know who you are, what you’ve been up to, and how you could be reached!

COVID-19 : A perfect virus

COVID-19 pandemic has, in a very short time, caused major disruptions in the anthropogenic assault on Earth, temporarily halting the following acts of ecocide:

  • Tourism (global, national and regional)
  • Militarism
  • Mass movement of people
  • Travel (air, sea and land)
  • Fossil fuel consumption
  • GHG emissions
  • Air pollution
  • Manufacture of ephemeral junk
  • Imports of junk
  • Exports of coal, oil… to China and other places

REMARKABLY, the perfect virus has achieved all of the above with fewer than 4 per 100,000 of the world population infected, and an insignificant mortality rate of 0.13 per 100,000.

Now, read between the keywords, before the STORM arrives:

The Establishment Complicit in Chch Mosques Terror Mass Murders

Posted by te2ataria on March 15, 2020

Sent by a reader   [additional material added by moderators]

The State Guilty of Negligent Mass Homicides 

One scumbag  was able to pull the trigger and murder at least 52 people, and leave 49 others seriously wounded because hundreds of other white supremacist scumbags looked the other way…

“Ignored by the state – How Muslim women tried to warn of impending danger”

“The Islamic Women’s Council believes it’s likely the Christchurch mosque attacks would never have happened if the public service – including police and security agencies – had not ignored their repeated warnings. The council has shared its concerns with the Royal Commission into the shootings, which is sitting behind closed doors, and has spoken exclusively with RNZ Insight.”  Read more…

The Scumbag Terrorist

Brenton Tarrant, 28, from Grafton, New South Wales, Australia, described as a white supremacist and part of the alt-right, was arrested and has since been charged with 51 murders, 40 attempted murders, and engaging in a terrorist act; he pleaded not guilty to all charges, with the trial expected to start June 2, 2020.

Blocked by the Axis of Evil

Since 2008, we the blog moderators have tried to warn foreign tourists, students, migrants and refugees that apartheid toilet, NZ, is a dangerous place, particularly deadly for “non-whites”.

The axis of evil, however, have censored, blocked and filtered the messages, preventing the would-be victims from receiving the warnings.

Then, the ANZ terrorist struck, as we had warned.

WARNING: SIS Won’t Stop the Next Terrorist Attacks, Either!

[August 11, 2019] In Courage to kill the defenseless, posted on April 2012, we asked:

Which one of the Knights Templar will be the next mass murderer?

Blog Moderators and contributors had anticipated that before long the so-called white supremacists and extreme right groups, sponsored by foreign governments and wealthy Zionist organizations, would perpetrate acts of terrorism against NZ’s powerless migrants, namely Muslims, Asians and other ethnic groups from poor countries, as part of a global strategy consistent with the destabilization of Middle East, South Asia and other parts of the world.

It was also obvious to us that New Zealand Security Intelligence Service (SIS) won’t prevent the attacks!

Sent by an independent researcher [edited and summarized by the blog moderators]

FACT: If New Zealand government wanted to protect the migrants and kiwi minorities from white supremacist and extreme right terrorists, they would’ve ditched the white supremacist Security Intelligence Service and the related agencies decades ago!

White Supremacist SIS Won’t Protect Targeted Minorities During Next Wave of Terrorist Attacks

The following is based on a statistical model using historical precedence and recent data:

  1. Probability of one or more white supremacist terrorist attacks occurring in ANZ over the next 20 months: NZ=0.8 [Australia=0.5]
  2. Most likely targets in NZ: Christchurch, Auckland (followed by the next four most populous cities)
  3. Nationality of the terrorist(s): ANZ citizens (followed by white extremists from Eastern Europe, Nordic countries, remaining FVEY nations, others with connection in NZ)
  4. REMOVED
  5. REMOVED
  6. REMOVED
  7. REMOVED
  8. REMOVED
  9. REMOVED

The SIS involvement in public incidents and controversies:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Zealand_Security_Intelligence_Service

After the March 15, 2019 white supremacist terrorist attack on two mosques in Christchurch, the failure of the SIS and other NZ state agencies to pay adequate attention to the ‘far right’, and to detect the terrorist was strongly criticised. Green Party MP Marama Davidson and Tuhoe activist and artist Tame Iti, among others, suggested that the SIS and other state security and intelligence agencies had the wrong people under surveillance, including Muslim communities, Maori, and environmental activists.[10][37] The spokesperson for the Islamic Women’s Council of New Zealand, Anjum Rahman, voiced frustration at the failure of the SIS to take Muslim community concerns about racist violence and the rise of the alt-right in New Zealand seriously.[38][39] Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced that there would be an inquiry into the circumstances that led to the mosque attacks and what the relevant agencies (SIS, Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB), police, Customs and Immigration) knew about the individual and the accused’s activities.[40]

Few of the diseases carried by fleas, bed bugs, body louse, sand flies…  and mosquitoes

Q. Can insects carry COVID-19 in addition to the following diseases?

  • Short answer:  Continue reading…

Study Offers Further Evidence of Bed Bugs’ Ability to Transmit Chagas Disease Pathogen

“Though generally regarded as a nuisance or irritant pest, the common bed bug (Cimex lectularius) is known to be capable of harboring more than 40 human disease-causing pathogens. It’s the transmission back to humans that bed bugs seem not to be as good at as some of their other blood-feeding cousins. But entomologists have some evidence that bed bug feces can be a channel for disease transmission, so it’s wise to study which pathogens bed bugs can carry and just how well those pathogens can survive within them.”

“Chagas disease is a vector-borne infection with symptoms ranging from mild to life-threatening, and it is spread primarily by insects in the Triatominae subfamily, a grouping of approximately 130 species found in the Americas. (They’re often known as “kissing bugs,” for their habit of feeding on sleeping humans’ faces.) The blood-feeding insects spread Chagas disease through their feces, and the infection affects as many as 8 million people in Mexico, Central America, and South America, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”

A study by researchers at New Mexico State University shows that bed bugs (Cimex lectularius) are capable of hosting the pathogen that causes Chagas disease for up to 97 days, and the pathogen can persist even through the bed bug’s molting process between one nymphal stage and the next.

Flea-borne Diseases

Figure 1: Xenopsylla cheopis, the Oriental rat flea –CDC

Bubonic plague. The most well-known flea transmitted disease is the Bubonic plague. Plague is a disease that affects humans and other mammals. It is caused by the bacterium, Yersinia pestis. Humans usually get plague after being bitten by a rodent flea that is carrying the plague bacterium or by handling an animal infected with plague. Plague is infamous for killing millions of people in Europe during the Middle Ages.

Swellings (buboes) filled with bacteria develop in the lymph nodes, especially in the armpits and groin. This form is normally transmitted to humans by infected fleas. If left untreated, it causes death in about 50% of cases.

Urban plague may occur when rats living in and around human dwellings are infected. Rat fleas (Xenopsylla species) that normally feed on rats may occasionally feed on humans and thus spread the disease to them. When rodents infected with plague die the fleas leave their hosts and are then likely to attack and infect people. Other fleas, such as the human flea, may subsequently transmit the disease from person to person.

There are three clinical types of plague:

  • Bubonic plague. Swellings (buboes) filled with bacteria develop in the lymph nodes, especially in the armpits and groin. This form is normally transmitted to humans by infected fleas. If left untreated, it causes death in about 50% of cases.
  • Pneumonic plague. This is a secondary form in which the lungs become affected. It is highly contagious, the plague bacillus easily spreading from person to person in sputum or droplets coughed up or sneezed by sick people. Pneumonic plague occurred in epidemics in past centuries, killing millions of people. If left untreated it very often results in death.
  • Septicaemic plague. The bloodstream is invaded by the plague bacillus, resulting in death before one of the above two forms can develop.

Flea-borne (murine) typhus

Flea-borne (murine) typhus, is a disease caused by a bacteria called Rickettsia typhi. Flea-borne typhus is spread to people through contact with infected fleas. Fleas become infected when they bite infected animals, such as rats, cats, or opossums. When an infected flea bites a person or animal, the bite breaks the skin, causing a wound. Fleas poop when they feed. The poop (also called flea dirt) can then be rubbed into the bite wound or other wounds causing infection. People can also breathe in infected flea dirt or rub it into their eyes.

Bartonella Infection (Cat Scratch Disease, Trench Fever, and Carrión’s Disease)

  • Cat scratch disease (CSD), Bartonella henselae
  • Trench fever, Bartonella quintana
  • Carrión’s disease, Bartonella bacilliformis

Tularemia

Tularemia is a disease that can infect animals and people. Rabbits, hares, and rodents are especially susceptible and often die in large numbers during outbreaks. People can become infected in several ways, including:

  • Tick and deer fly bites
  • Skin contact with infected animals
  • Drinking contaminated water
  • Inhaling contaminated aerosols or agricultural and landscaping dust
  • Laboratory exposure
  • In addition, people could be exposed as a result of bioterrorism.

Mycoplasma haemofelis

Mycoplasma haemofelis (M. haemofelis) is a parasitic bacterial disease that is transmitted to cats through flea bites, as well as tick and mosquito bites. An infection of the red blood cells, M. haemofelis can cause fever and anemia in cats. There is also some evidence that M. haemofelis can infect humans, especially those with compromised immune systems. Because fleas are equal opportunity feeders, an infected flea can transmit the parasite to both you and your pet.

M. haemofelis attaches to the infected cat’s red blood cells, which leads to the body’s immune system treating the red blood cells as foreign, marking them for destruction. This destruction of large numbers of red blood cells frequently leads to anemia..

Tapeworms

One of the most loathsome parasites, tapeworms make themselves at home in the intestines of dogs, cats, and humans. Pets can get tapeworms by swallowing infected adult fleas, which can occur when animals groom themselves or other animals. Cats can also get the disease by eating infected mice.

While extremely uncommon in adults, children may get infected by accidentally swallowing an infected flea, which they can encounter while playing outdoors, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Children and pets pass segments of tapeworms, known as proglottids, during bowel movements.

Fleas

Fleas are small, wingless bloodsucking insects (order Siphonaptera) with a characteristic jumping movement. They feed mainly on mammals but also on birds. Of the 3000 species only a dozen commonly attack humans. The most important species are the rat flea, the human flea and the cat flea (Fig. 4.6). Their bites can cause irritation, serious discomfort and loss of blood. The rat flea is important as a vector of bubonic plague and flea-borne typhus. Cat fleas incidentally transmit tapeworms. The sand flea or jigger burrows into the skin of humans and may cause infections. Fleas that bite people occur in most parts of the world.

Difference between bed bugs and fleas: While both require blood meals from warm-blooded hosts, fleas tend to prefer feeding on hairy or furry animals such as cats and dogs. Bed bugs do not fly or jump. They have to crawl across your bed to feed.

Mosquitoes

Mosquito-borne diseases are those spread by the bite of an infected mosquito. Diseases that are spread to people by mosquitoes include Zika virus, West Nile virus, Chikungunya virus, dengue, and malaria.

Back to the initial question:

Can insects carry COVID-19 in addition to the following diseases?

Experts from the Vet School, Med School, and Center for Public Health Initiatives provide insight into the new disease outbreak

Though the nature of this outbreak is changing daily, some facets are known. Penn experts Julie Engiles of the School of Veterinary Medicine, David Pegues of the Perelman School of Medicine, and Carolyn Cannuscio of the Center for Public Health Initiatives provide some context:

Like its predecessors, the novel coronavirus is a zoonotic disease.

At its simplest, that means the infection can spread between animals and humans, Engiles says. “Something like 61% of known infectious diseases occurring in people are zoonotic,” she adds. “And recently, about 75% of newly emerging infectious diseases are zoonotic, so either we’re seeing an increase in their relative frequency or we’re getting better at identifying them.”

They can be passed to humans through direct contact with animal feces and other secretions, contaminated food, indirect transmission via a conduit like water, or vector-borne transmission through mosquitoes, other insects, or even mammals, as is the case with rabies. In some zoonotic diseases like SARS and MERS, human-to-human spread then happens through contact with someone who is sick, likely in the same manner that the flu and other respiratory pathogens move from person to person.

“…a flea Has smaller fleas that on him prey; And these have smaller still to bite ’em, And so proceed ad infinitum

Q: How do we know the outbreak was caused by an animal?

Short Answer: By testing the animals at the origin source and comparing them with infected humans. But first, some background:

Viruses, a type of pathogen, can infect all types of living entities, from humans to plants and to even bacteria. The toxic agent replicates inside the living cells of organisms. The CDC lists 5 ways germs are spread between animals and humans:

  1. Direct contact: Coming into contact with the saliva, blood, urine, mucous, feces, or other body fluids of an infected animal. Examples include petting or touching animals, and bites or scratches.
  2. Indirect contact: Coming into contact with areas where animals live and roam, or objects or surfaces that have been contaminated with germs. Examples include aquarium tank water, pet habitats, chicken coops, barns, plants, and soil, as well as pet food and water dishes.
  3. Vector-borne: Being bitten by a tick, or an insect like a mosquito or a flea.
  4. Foodborne: Each year, 1 in 6 Americans get sick from eating contaminated food. Eating or drinking something unsafe, such as unpasteurized (raw) milk, undercooked meat or eggs, or raw fruits and vegetables that are contaminated with feces from an infected animal. Contaminated food can cause illness in people and animals, including pets.
  5. Waterborne: Drinking or coming in contact with water that has been contaminated with feces from an infected animal.

NZ govt omitting the inconvenient truth on COVID-19 propagation!? [Part 2]

Posted by te2ataria on March 8, 2020

Blog Notes:

Is this how NZ govt omitting the inconvenient truth on COVID-19 propagation?

A small team of super smart individuals have developed several virus propagation models for COVID-19 named here as “SVPM-20”.

The SVPM-20 report presenting the simulated scenarios was redacted, summarized and reworded to protect the developers’ identities.

Developer’s Notes:

Enhanced results were obtained by comparing the SVPM-20 calculations to the data obtained from

[…]

4. Propagation of the COVID-19 in

  • China
  • Italy

The variation in COVID-19 area mortality and morbidity rates suggest the presence of multiple strains of the virus.

  • At least 3 strains of coronavirus may currently be spreading globally.

COVID-19 Global Outbreak

as of March 08, 2020 @ 10:00 UTC [publicly available data]

Global Coronavirus Cases: 107,500 [Reported cases only]

  • Reported Deaths: 3,650
  • Currently hospitalized/quarantined: 43,000 people including 6,100 patients in a critical condition.
  • No of countries, territories and conveyance: 106  [includes two cruise ships, Diamond Princes and Grand Princess, as separate counts.]
  • Top 12 worst hit countries: China,S. Korea, Italy, Iran, France, Germany, Diamond Princess, Spain, Japan, WMTBR*, Switzerland and UK.

Global growth factor for daily new cases: 1.07 [ indicates exponential growth, based on the reported data]

The developers were asked to run simulated scenarios and calculate the propagation of COVID-19 in various areas including

i) Global

ii) The Zombie Democracy

iii)*The World’s Most Toxic Banana Republic (WMTBR). The current calculations are as follows:

No. of COVID-19 infection as of March 08, 2020 @ 10:00 UTC

i) Global: 160,000 cases [WCS: 250,000 incidents]
ii) The Zombie Democracy: 1,500 cases
ii) WMTBR: 20,000 cases   [Projected to be the next global hotspot for the outbreak of multiple strains of COVID-19]

Models show major discrepancies in the reporting of infection propagation in multiple countries versus the simulations. The worst cases are the WMTBR, Japan, New Zealand….

NZ government (police and Ministry of Resurrection) under-report road fatalities and murders in the same way Puerto Rican officials (US Govt) misled the world following Hurricane Maria. Death toll from the deadly storm was reported at only 64, instead of the scientifically researched total of at least 2,975.

In NZ, about two-thirds of road fatalities go unreported, or unrecorded to protect the cutthroat tourism and fraud-ridden banking system. [See blog entries under Ministry of Resurrection.]

Disinformation/Deception Alert: Govt & Police Continue to Lie by Omission

At least six people were killed on NZ roads, in two regions alone, on Wednesday and Thursday, March 4-5, a police insider has informed the blog.

To the best of our knowledge, the fatality reports have not been released publicly.

The Ministry of Resurrection, on the other hand, has gone one step further by resurrecting a victim of the previously reported road deaths.

Lieutenant Colonel Justin Putze, a veteran of 25 years and five deployments, has been found guilty of multiple charges including entering a relationship with a subordinate, not disclosing the relationship to his superiors, engaging in a public display of affection, and lying to his superiors. He had denied all charges.

The putz had a relationship with the army inkpot Captain Carolyne Cappola, who still can’t figure out what the fuss is all about.

The “Rear”Admiral

Commodore [“Rear” Admiral] Alfred Harold Keating, 59, was found guilty of attempting to make intimate recording by planting a hidden camera in a toilet inside the New Zealand embassy in Washington DC.

A jury of 12 people at Auckland District Court found the putz guilty. He was a former assistant chief of Navy at Defence headquarters in Wellington, before being posted as a defence attache to the embassy in the US.

The camera he planted inside the bathroom radiator of New Zealand embassy in Washington DC was discovered on July 27, 2017, a report said.

He was sentenced to four months and 15 days home detention in June 2019.

How many of Auckland properties bought with laundered money?

Posted by te2ataria on March 3, 2020

Sent by an angry reader in Shittier than shittiest shitty in NZ!! [aka, “Auckland”] – [Strong language removed by moderator.]

How many of the politically well-connected foreign “investors” operating in NZ routinely bribe their way out of justice?

WHY IS THE SYSTEM SO CORRUPT, I MUST PAY TEN TIMES THE RENT AND LIVE IN A CONVERTED GARAGE AS THE PRICE OF LANDING A JOB IN THE AUCKLAND AREA?

Chinese crooks “Qiang Fu” and his mother “Fuqing Che” didn’t know who to bribe in the establishment!

“A mother and son who transferred money for a Chinese-Canadian businessman [Xiao Hua Gong, also known as Edward Gong] accused of running a $202 million pyramid scheme are the first in New Zealand to be sentenced for criminal offending under the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering Financing of Terrorism Act. [The other 999,998 foreign investors know they needn’t worry because they deal with politicians like Jian Yang, ex-PM John Key…]

Magic Weapons: China’s political influence activities under Xi Jinping” –Prof. Anne-Marie Brady

“Former National Party leader, Dr Don Brash, chairs the Industrial Bank of China in New Zealand; former National MPs Ruth Richardson and Chris Tremain are on the board of the Bank of China in New Zealand; while former Prime Minister Dame Jenny Shipley chairs the China Construction Bank (New Zealand) and was on the board of the China Construction Bank for six years. She is also chair of the Oravida board. Former National MP and Minister of Finance, Ruth Richardson was a director of Synlait Farms and is now a director of Synlait Milk. Shanghai Pengxin—noted for its interest in New Zealand’s farms as well as near space—owns 74% of Synlait Farm. National MP Judith Collins’ husband David Wong-Tung was on the Oravida board for 5 years. Sammy Wong, husband of former National MP Pansy Wong, assisted Pacific Power Development to get a contract for the Chinese company China North Rail (CNR) to supply 20 locomotives to KiwiRail. CNR also won a $29 million contract to supply 300 flat-deck wagons to KiwiRail.

“More recently, former New Zealand PM John Key is now acting on behalf of US media and entertainment company Comcast, to assist Comcast’s business projects in China. In July 2017, Key met with Chinese premier Li Keqiang, the acting mayor of Beijing, and head of China’s Department of Tourism; with the New Zealand Ambassador to China in attendance. In September 2017 the New Zealand media raised pointed questions about the price and purchaser of a two-thirds portion of Key’s Parnell property. The property was sold for NZ$20 million, well above market rates for the area, to an undisclosed Chinese buyer. John Key refused to answer any questions about the transaction.”

“National list MP Yang Jian had spent 15 years studying and working with Chinese military intelligence at the PLA-Air Force Engineering College and Luoyang Foreign Language Institute.”

“Xi Jinping’s going to go down in history as a good leader of China,” said John Key in 2018.

“In 2018 the Department of Internal Affairs brought charges against Qiang Fu, his mother Fuqin Che and the Auckland CBD finance company Fu is the sole director and shareholder of, Jiaxin Finance.”

“Gong was arrested in Canada in December 2017, accused of running a $202m pyramid scheme.”

Police froze and seized about C$63m (NZ$69m) in New Zealand bank accounts as well as two [of his] Auckland properties worth about $3m.

Meanwhile…

US billionaires like Peter Thiel continue to suck the life out of the Kiwis with absolute impunity, thanks to the corrupt system and its nefarious pimps!

He screwed the taxpayers out of millions, while sodomizing the corrupt NZ government ministers and got a preferential citizenship, too!

Thanks to the institutionally and pathologically corrupt NZ government, a ‘sweetheart‘ deal with the then Finance Minister Steven Joyce  in 2012 “left Thiel with an investment worth least $30 million after contributing just under $7m. The NZVIF, by contrast, confirmed in a statement to the Weekend Herald that it received just $10.2m following the October move after having earlier contributed $9m.”

A Wall St analyst told the Weekend Herald the clause left the Government facing a “horrendous risk-return proposition” that had no place in agreements between commercial parties.

“If a professional investor signed this deal, they would be the butt of their colleagues’ jokes all the way out the door,” the analyst said.

“This is a clear ‘heads I double win, tails I lose’, ‘heads the taxpayer loses, and tails the taxpayer loses’ proposition, and a very savvy deal for Thiel.”

It’s worth remembering that for every reported outrage committed by Thiel against NZers, a dozen or so of other depraved acts go unreported.
