Frigging Peter Thiel for prime minister!?

Is the dark billionaire planning to become the next NZ PM?

How much money will it take for Thiel to become the next NZ prime minister, and who must he bribe?

The media/journalists who are owned, embedded, penetrated or otherwise controlled by the intelligence community, collectively the Five Eyes, seem to be promoting Peter Theil again recently:

Who is Peter Thiel?

Peter Thiel a ‘great ambassador’ for NZ

Links to the blog opinion, and the real news on the dark billionaire:

Gay billionaire and Trump supporter another XERO connection

A 193-hectare Wanaka lifestyle block has been purchased by the gay billionaire Peter Thiel, who has apparently become a New Zealand citizen.

German-born Thiel bought $147 million of shares in NZX-listed technology company XERO in 2013, said a report.

“Thiel, a conservative libertarian, supported Donald Trump’s bid for the US presidency and donated $1.25m to Trump’s campaign. After Trump’s victory, Thiel was appointed to his transition team.”

People Who Make NZ, U.S. and the World a Sad Place

Why Protesters Gathered Outside Peter Thiel’s Mansion This Weekend
On Saturday afternoon, a group of about fifty tech workers, attorneys, anti-surveillance activists, and other Bay Area denizens stood outside a three-story, nine-bedroom, twenty-five-million-dollar mansion. It is the home of the investor, entrepreneur, and Trump adviser Peter Thiel, who co-founded Palantir Technologies, in 2004.

Watch Out Billionaires, Thiel Poses an Existential Threat to MOST of You, too! [Watch This Space!]

Palantir Enables Immigration Agents to Access Information From the CIA
Protesters carried signs reading “Make America Mexico Again” and “No Ban No Wall No Surveillance State.”

“The reason we’re here,” said one speaker, “is to call upon the people who are complicit in what Trump is trying to do.”  https://theintercept.com/2017/03/17/palantir-enables-immigration-agents-to-access-information-from-the-cia/

How Peter Thiel’s Palantir Helped the NSA Spy on the Whole World
Donald Trump has inherited the most powerful machine for spying ever devised. How this petty, vengeful man might wield and expand the sprawling American spy apparatus, already vulnerable to abuse, is disturbing enough on its own. But the outlook is even worse considering Trump’s vast preference for private sector expertise and new strategic friendship with Silicon Valley billionaire investor Peter Thiel, whose controversial (and opaque) company Palantir has long sought to sell governments an unmatched power to sift and exploit information of any kind.

Praetorian Guards of Corrupt Business Empires: Peter Thiel’s business partner Jared Kushner is just as crooked as him!

Like father, like son, like father-in-law…
Jared Kushner, the top White House adviser and Trump’s son-in-law, didn’t disclose his business ties with George Soros [the Transparency Czar,] Peter Thiel [the crook who shafted NZers,] and Goldman Sachs [**************] or that he owes more than $1 billion in loans  to more than 20 lenders, with personal guarantees of $US300 million, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Kushner’s Felon Father Back at Helm of New York Empire With Two Fellow Inmates
“It’s hard to find work right out of prison. But Avram Lebor and Richard Goettlich walked from their Alabama penitentiary into top jobs at the real estate company then run by Jared Kushner, now President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser. The two men, convicted in separate sprawling fraud schemes, were hired several years ago by his father, Charles Kushner, who had been locked up in the same federal prison with them.”
“It can’t hurt to be doing business with Jared Kushner’s family. It’s a road to the administration.”

At least 4,000 overseas visitors, international students, foreign workers, recent emigrants and refugees have lost their lives and more than 24,000 others seriously injured in New Zealand between Jan 2000 and Jan 2017. All silent Kiwis are complicit in the mass killing of foreigners. (Beware of Bad Karma!)

People living in Wellington, Christchurch, Auckland, Tasman Bay and Hawke’s Bay regions are either very brave, or extremely stupid. Then again, karma returns in mysterious ways!

Queenstown’s official thugs wrongly accuse woman of shoplifting

Posted by te2ataria on June 10, 2016

Queenstown police link innocent woman to a male shoplifter on their Facebook page

Police Infector Olaf Jensen says he has met with Ginny Mitchell, the victim of the wrongful association, and has apologised in person for the false accusation.

“We are currently speaking to our staff about their social media procedures and they are now aware how a mistake like this can affect an innocent person,” he said.

Ironically, these are the same thugs who’ve ordered their subordinates NOT to talk to media when  foreigners are killed in New Zealand.

Shellfish warning in Whangaparaoa extended
People are being warned not to collect or eat shellfish in the Whangaparaoa area after higher than the paralytic levels of PSP toxin were discovered.

The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) today extended the current health warning advising the public not to collect or consume shellfish in the Whangaparaoa region.

Routine tests have shown levels of Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning (PSP) toxins are above the safety limit by 0.2mg/kg.

Mussels, oysters, tuatua, pipi, toheroa, cokcles, scallops, catseyes, kina and all other bivalve shellfish should not be eaten – anyone eating shellfish is potentially at risk of illness.

Commerical oyster farms in the Mahurangi Harbour are being monitored and have been closed as a precaution.

The warning now applies from Toroa Point (Gull Point), just south of the Whangaparaoa Peninsula, and extends northwards to Takatu Point, just north of Kawau Island and other smaller offshore islands in the vicinity.  http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11654281

One more Frenchman killed in New Zealand

Posted by te2ataria on June 8, 2016

He visited many countries and lived, then he came to New Zealand 

The climber who was killed after falling from Mt Taranaki was a 25-year-old French national Victor Roucher, police have finally revealed.

Roucher and his 24-year-old climbing partner, also a Frenchman, were on their way to the summit, about 200 metres from the crater, when Roucher fell to his death on Tuesday.


RIP. Victor Roucher. The 25-year-old French national had visited many countries and lived, then he came to New Zealand.

The last two people to die on Mt Taranaki were climbers Nicole Sutton and Hiroki Ogawa in October 2013. The couple died of hypothermia after becoming stranded on the mountain overnight.

It is believed Roucher was the 83rd person [?] to die on Mt Taranaki since records began in 1891.  http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/80837835/Mt-Taranaki-fall-death-victim-named

Eighteen killed, four critically injured on QBW: Confidential source

Posted by te2ataria on June 7, 2016

Carnage on NZ roads much worse than reported: Confidential source

At least 18 people were killed and four others near-fatally injured on NZ roads on Queen’s Birthday Weekend (QBW), according to a confidential source.

The manipulated road toll for previous years were as follows.

In 1989, when there was little or no systematic censorship, 13 road fatalities were reported on QBW.

In 2012, only seven road kills were reported, and the released figure for 2009 was 10 fatalities.

In 2013, the road toll for QBW was completely suppressed by the authorities. In fact, a strict campaign of news censorship by police/government meant that only 253 road fatalities would be reported during the entire year.  [Statistically, the road toll is 12 for the long weekend.]

Who was the young woman fatally injured near car park on Mt Taranaki?

Posted by te2ataria on October 8, 2015

Who was the victim?  Why her death remains unexplained?

At about 5.28pm on 4 October 2015 “a 30 year old female was involved in a motor vehicle accident near the sky field car park on Mt Taranaki,” according to the police.

“She was flown to Taranaki base hospital by the rescue helicopter but died as a result of her injuries on route.”

“The woman’s name will not be released until family members have been notified,” police added.

That was five days ago, but there’s still NO news about who she was and how she actually died…

We demand to know who the victim was and what exactly caused her death.

Swedish Climber Killed on Mount Cook

Posted by te2ataria on November 4, 2013

Mount Cook Claims Yet Another Foreign Climber

Swedish national Magnus Kastengren, 32, reported to be an experienced climber, was killed when he plummeted 600m to his death on Aoraki Mt Cook Sunday morning, according to APNZ.

“He’s basically fallen off the main ridge of Mt Cook, so it’s very steep terrain,” said Senior Constable Brent Swanson of Lake Tekapo police, in perfect English.

Both the weather and climbing conditions were good at the time, according to a report.

“The pair had been skiing and traversing near the lower summit, at an elevation of about 3700m, when the man fell down the mountain’s main ridge.”

The climbers were near the Summit Ridge Porter Col of Mt Cook when Mr Kastengren fell to his death. “Miraculously [!]” the dead climber was not tethered to his partner Andreas Fransson, also from Sweden, when he plummeted  to his death .

The police finally revealed the climbers age and nationality on Monday.

Mr Kastengren was the third person (second foreigner) killed within a week climbing mountains in New Zealand.

Nicole Sutton, 29, and her partner Hiroki Ogawa, 31, froze to death after  they became trapped in poor weather near the summit of Mt Taranaki over Labour Weekend.

At least 280 people have died on Aoraki Mt Cook, New Zealand’s highest mountain, and Mt Taranaki in recent times, with the former being the deadliest with more than 200 deaths.

Japanese climber and his partner freeze to death on Mt Taranaki

Posted by te2ataria on October 29, 2013

Couple froze to death near summit of Mt Taranaki: Police

A Japanese climber and his partner died in a snow cave near the summit of Mt Taranaki.

Hiroki Ogawa, 31, and Nicole Sutton, 29, froze to death on the 2,520-metre-high mountain, NZ police confirmed on Monday.

“Ms Sutton lived through the night but passed away in the arms of rescue staff shortly after they arrived at 7.30am,” according to a report.

“I knew he would look after my daughter really well”

Ms Sutton’s parents had hoped she and Mr Ogawa would eventually marry and Mr Sutton said he knew the 31-year-old “would look after my daughter really well”.

At least 80 people have died on Mt Taranaki in recent times, however,  the 3,754-metre Aoraki Mt Cook in the South Island, New Zealand’s highest, remains the deadliest with more than 200 deaths.
