Foreword: What does a failed country look like? 

“We have a [kosher] white supremacist establishment that shames even Donald Trump [NY mafia,] spend billions on an incompetent and unnecessary military, and let a brutal police force [and private security/spy firms] run the country [and commit murder and other heinous crimes] with absolute impunity, but have no clean water [and go blind while waiting for eye care, or die within hours of being released from hospital, while a significant portion of the taxpayers’ money goes toward servicing money-laundering operations, instead of feeding the 325,000 hungry kids – and their families – who live below the poverty line… and we allow Chinese gangsters and the likes to inflate property prices, making home ownership impossible for many] in [apartheid] New Zealand [a zombie democracy, where facts, stats and figures don’t matter…]” — A Reader

FAKE Freedom of Information: Police Censorship = NO Information!

23 serious crashes on NZ roads since Sunday, but only FOUR reported by police

DOCTORED Road Toll and Statistical RESURRECTIONS

Only FOUR of at least 23 serious crash reports allowed by police since Sunday, despite numerous people being critically, or seriously injured…and NO fatalities??!!!

  • Police Road Fatality Reports: Extreme censorship is in effect for tourism and commercial reasons. Of those fatalities reported by police, many are statistically resurrected by the Ministry of Transport (MoT).

Proudly Killed in New Zealand…

Woman killed after driving into fence in Christchurch
A woman was killed after she drove her car into a fence in Christchurch. “Emergency services responded to the crash at Masham Rd (State Highway 1) near the intersection with Steadman Rd in Broomfield, at 3.15pm on Monday. It appeared the crash may have been the result of a medical event, she said.”

Of course, the death wasn’t registered as a road fatality!! What if there were others killed as a result of the crash? Would they also be kept out of the official toll?

Welcome to the World’s Deadliest Tourist Destination – Truth about NZ Deadly Roads, as We Know it:

  • Based on insider information, statistical models and local news, we believe about 900 people were killed and more than 8,000 others seriously/critically injured on NZ suicide roads in 2016; however, only 328 fatalities were reported last year. [For every 12 or so victims, who die later in a hospital, only one death is reported. See blog content.]
  • To protect the tourist industry and massive foreign investment, about two out of every three road fatalities [and other tourists deaths] go unreported, or the dead are statistically resurrected by NZ government.

Tourist Road Fatalities in NZ are a State Secret

On average, three tourists are killed in New Zealand every 4 days, but many of the deaths go unreported:

Medical Miracle, or Malicious MENDACITY?

Of an estimated 2,500 people who have received near-fatal, critical, or serious injuries on New Zealand roads so far this year, less than a handful have perished from their injuries, according to NZ police reports, or lack thereof.

  • At least FIVE, possibly as many as SEVEN, people were killed in serious crashes on Wednesday, August 23, according to a informed source, but only three fatalities were reported by police.
  • Both the actual number of road fatalities and cases of statistical resurrections performed by the Ministry of Transport (MoT) over the September 22-24 weekend remain UNKNOWN.
  • Between September 18 and 21, 2017 at least SIX road fatality victims were resurrected by MOT.
  • At least nine road fatalities occurred over the weekend (September 1 – 2), according to reliable insider information. However, only four of the deaths were reported by police, and of those, just three were recorded by the Ministry of Transport.

72,000 New Zealanders Can’t Be Wrong!

Posted by te2ataria on July 2, 2011

Sent by a foreigner living in Sewage City [Wellington]

Is there something about faecally contaminated water that appeals to kiwis?

At least 72,000 people are drinking faecally contaminated water, the Green Party said.

[As usual, the Ministry of Health’s annual report is heavily doctored in the true pakeha fashion.  The  actual number of people drinking faecally contaminated water may be at least 10 times higher than the figure suggested . Moderator]

Russel Norman, Co-leader of the Greens, said the Ministry of Health’s annual report on drinking water, released today, showed many people were being denied their right to clean, safe drinker water.

“Some communities have faeces in their drinking water and yet the Government has limited their ability to clean up their water sources,” he said.

“The report gives statistics about microbiological and protozoal compliance of registered drinking water supplies,” according to a report.

“Dr Norman said it showed drinking water non-compliance was generally located in towns with populations of less than 5000.”

“At a time when nearly half our lakes and most of our lowlands rivers are classed as polluted, and these are the source of drinking water for many communities, the Government needs to be investing more money into helping communities supply clean, safe drinking water, not less,” he said.

“I hope this report spurs the Government into reversing their decision to cut the Capital Assistance Programme, which has left many communities drinking faecally contaminated water.”

Play Golf, Don’t worry about faecally contaminated water

Meanwhile, the government has approved a $160 million golf academy and residential resort for the outskirts of Christchurch.

You’ll find plenty of holes in the area to putt your balls!

TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE

100% Pure Extinction

Finally, a New Zealand Scientist Speaks Out, BUT…

New Zealand’s biodiversity crisis is far worse than previously revealed

Ecologist at odds with PM on 100% Pure NZ

Freshwater ecologist Mike Joy says he has the science to disprove New Zealand’s “clean, green” image, and he has found holes in a study the Government has used as a counter-argument.

Dr Joy’s speech to Forest & Bird today will also outline his case for why the “100% Pure” advertising campaign is misleading.

The issue came to attention last month, when Prime Minister John Key was grilled on BBC’s Hardtalk programme by host Stephen Sackur, who used Dr Joy’s data to suggest the slogan was no longer true.

“Well, that might be Mike Joy’s view, but I don’t share that view,” Mr Key said at the time. “Like lawyers, I can give you one that will provide you with a counter-theory.”

After the show aired in New Zealand, Mr Key faced a barrage of questions in Parliament from Green Party co-leader Russel Norman, who suggested he was playing down the environmental impact of intensive farming.

Mr Key said the impact was “not great” and pointed to a 2010 study from Columbia and Yale universities that ranked New Zealand second only to Iceland in terms of water quality, with a score of 99.2.

But Dr Joy poured cold water on the study yesterday, claiming the data it used was “totally flawed”. Firstly, out of the 130 countries ranked, only half actually had any water quality data available for the comparison, while the rest had estimates.

The data was also an unfair representation of nations as a whole. “The 11 sites they got from Australia were all from one state. You can hardly represent the water quality of the whole country by examining one tiny portion of it.”

He said half of the 80 measurements used to calculate New Zealand’s water quality were from pristine “control sites” known to be free from the impacts of agricultural and industrial pollutants.

Mr Joy said he called the Yale study’s authors when he heard it being quoted by the Government and was “shocked” by the research it was based on.

When asked yesterday if he still stood by his comments, a spokeswoman for Mr Key said: “The prime minister does not share the view of Mike Joy, and has no further comment to make.”

Mass extinctions of native species will occur within our lifetimes …

Scientist warns of mass extinction

Mass extinctions of native species will occur within our lifetimes, and new research explains why the biodiversity crisis is far worse than previously measured.

Massey University scientist Mike Joy will paint a bleak picture of native animals and plants in a speech today to the Forest & Bird annual conference in Wellington.

He told The Dominion Post that New Zealand was at crisis point, but current conservation funding and strategies meant it would be too late for many species.

He criticised the approach of focusing large efforts on a few species, such as kiwi or kakapo. “You wait till they’re at the edge of collapse and then put all this money into saving them. Meanwhile, everything else is falling off the edge of the cliff.”

With the Conservation Department’s budget continuing to be squeezed, it was inevitable that New Zealand was losing a grip on how bad the situation was. Existing data under-represented the true situation because there was so little money going into research or monitoring the changes.

“When biodiversity is in decline, by the time the data is collated, the report is written and published, the situation is far worse.”

All of New Zealand’s terrestrial mammals and frogs were now at risk of extinction, as were 60 per cent of reptile and native fish species, half our birds, one third of the freshwater invertebrate species and a quarter of marine fish species.

That meant 35 per cent, or 2,788, of native plant and animal species were on the brink of extinction.

“With around 60 per cent of freshwater fish species listed as threatened or extinct, New Zealand is far worse than the global average of around 37 per cent.” The only country to rank as badly in this area was South Africa, Dr Joy said.

His discussion of his findings comes in the week that DOC revealed there were still 3000 to 4000 species whose status was unknown.

DOC deputy director-general for research and development Kevin O’Connor said the agency was working on a programme to improve species work. That modelling work would extend the number of species actively being worked with.

Only about 200 of more than 2,000 threatened or endangered species are currently under active management.

Conservation Minister Kate Wilkinson this week defended DOC’s spending on threatened species such as kiwi.

“We’ve got to be realistic. Like all departments, we are constrained by the Budget, but we certainly haven’t reduced the funding on those species.”

Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment Jan Wright earlier this month called for greater use of 1080, warning that the battle against some predators was almost lost.

However, Ms Wilkinson told the local government and environment select committee this week that she was “not necessarily of the view” that more 1080 needed to be used.

NZ Security Apparatus: A Secret Force Fighting Freedom

Posted by te2ataria on December 14, 2008

Title and commentary submitted by a reader

If the SIS and NZ secret police were benevolent forces, protecting the public and their freedom, they could have easily prevented the bombing of Rainbow warrior by their French colleagues.

NZ Greens want spy inquiry

(source: NewsTalkZ) – December 14, 2008, 4:20 pm

The Green Party in New Zealand is calling for an inquiry into the Police Special Investigation Group, following evidence it is planting spies in protest groups.

Police informer Rob Gilchrist has told the Sunday Star Times he carried out surveillance on protest and community groups like Greenpeace over the last ten years. Mr Gilchrist says officers also used a paid informer to gather information about the personal lives of group members.

Green MP Keith Locke says peace and environmental protesters are the conscience of society, not enemies of the state. He says it is important New Zealand does not end up like East Germany under the Stasi, where people did not know who was on their side.

Mr Locke says a few technically illegal protests do not justify the police treating these groups as the enemy and infiltrating them. Mr Locke says scarce police resources are being diverted away from combating the really dangerous people, such as those in criminal groups. He says the guidelines police operate under are wrong, and they need to be told they have no place infiltrating protest groups.

Mr Locke says he is worried such covert operations undermine the constitutional political policy of the police force. Copyright: the author or respective news agency

The former SIG informer, Rob Gilchrist, is a patsy. He is being used as a smokescreen to obfuscate the true extent of the spying by NZ govt., and as a cover for the SIS agents who directly infiltrate “activist” groups.

Interestingly, he was “discovered” by his ex partner [who else]  who’s reportedly “an animal rights and Labor Party activist.”  [And a trained spy-catcher!?] Come again, “a labor party activist?” Whatever happened to investigative journalism in New Zealand!

“The police informer, Christchurch man Rob Gilchrist, whose activities are revealed in today’s Sunday Star-Times, was a key member of various community groups during the past decade.” Source

‘Security’ Breach at Spy Base

Posted by te2ataria on May 1, 2008

Submitted by a reader.

Top pimp ’embarrassed’ over ‘Security’ breach

The Government’s top spy pimp said he was embarrassed over an attack on the Marlborough spy base, New Zealand. The pimp called the three peace activists who attacked the base yesterday “warped and nonsensical.” [He has not yet declared how he would liquidate them.]

Government Communications Security Bureau director Air Marshal Bruce Ferguson [don’t you need a honey truck to carry the title?] brandishing his sidearm John Wayne style said that the “security” breach was “of major significance” and the agency was “annoyed” and “embarrassed.” Damage to the Marlborough spy base is estimated at more than $1 million. [Shouldn’t you commit Seppuku , resign your position as the chief pimp, or at least return your last year’s wages of sin, Judas?]

Samuel Peter Frederick Land, 24, a farmer, Adrian James Leason, 42, a teacher and Peter Reginald Leo Murnane, 67, a Dominican friar have been charged with intentionally damaging a satellite dish, the property of the bureau, and other items.

The antiwar group, Anzac Ploughshares, cut through three electrified security fences, dodged infrared cameras and deflated a 32m-high white globe covering one of two satellite dishes yesterday.

Green Party MP Keith Locke, trying to score points out of the other people’s antiwar activities [this a well known kiwi disease that has severely afflicted the establishment-trained members of the Green Party,] said Ferguson’s criticism of the peace activists was inappropriate for the head of a “security agency” in a Western democracy. [Wow!]

“I know some of the people involved and I know they have very strong consciences, and they are very strongly motivated by a […] peace ethic,” he said. [And?]

“In some ways, these people just represent the tip of the frustration in the general community,” he said. [When was the last time a Green Party MP went on a hunger strike denouncing US/UK/Aus/Canada/NZ war on Iraq, Mr Locke?]

“I can imagine people in the community who are very strongly opposed to (US President) George Bush’s policies. I can imagine their frustration boiling over if they think Waihopai is serving that policy.” [That’ll surely make the CIA and GWB p*ssing their pants in fear!]
