Stop Violent Crimes Against Asians in New Zealand

The Most Heavily Censored Blog in New Zealand [Watch Out for Ceaseless Swarms and Immense Tsunamis of Bad Karma, Mister Ingrish!!]

*****

For the past 11 years, this blog has been heavily filtered by New Zealand Govt and the Internet mafia for commercial and political reasons.

It’s also been completely banned in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Korea, Malaysia, India… in order to keep the would-be visitors and students in the dark about the perils of visiting New Zealand.

Who exactly must NZ government be conspiring with to be able to impose this level of censorship, with blanket suppression of information?

*****

WHY is Govt NOT helping Asian victims of violent crimes in NZ?

YOUR life and livelihood is at risk IF you’re a tourist, a foreign student, or a shopkeeper from a “yellow”, “brown”, “black”… country.

“There’s not a lot of respect for shopkeepers generally, but there is a target towards Asian shopkeepers, Chinese, Indian, different Asian ethnicities…,” said the President of the New Zealand Chinese Association and Gisborne [show-case] Mayor, Meng Foon.

‘Corruption is real in New Zealand, it’s happening’
[One of the world’s most corrupt countries, despite paid advertising to “Transparency Intentional”,] New Zealand is not as honest and free of corruption as it likes to believe, according to a new report.

NZ’s road crash costs just a dozen or so fatal crashes shy of $4.5b [but how accurate are those official figures?]

Total social cost of motor vehicle injury crashes in 2015 was about $3.79 billion, at June 2016 prices, according to the Ministry of Transport (Minitru).

In addition, there are an estimated 220,460 non-injury crashes, valued at a further $0.66 billion. This gives a total social cost of all motor vehicle crashes in 2015 of $4.45 billion (increased from $4.13 billion in 2014). These estimates include the costs associated with both reported and [estimated] non-reported cases, and allegedly covers all injuries recorded by NZ Police, hospitals and ACC.

Loss of life/ life quality due to permanent impairments accounted for approximately 91 per cent of the total social cost of injury crashes, while vehicle damage accounted for about five percent with other costs accounting  for the remaining four percent.

Average Social Cost per Reported  Crash:

  • Fatal: $4.73 million
  • Serious: $912,000
  • Minor: $99,000

Average Social Cost per Reported Injury:

  • Fatal: $4,180,000
  • Serious: 776,000
  • Minor: 77,000

Guria (1995) estimated that the number of non-injury crashes is 8.4 times the number of minor injury crashes.

At least seven people killed by drowning over Waitangi weekend

At least one death was negligent homicide

Bay of Plenty of Deaths

Woman drowned in the Waikato River after gates of the Aratiatia Dam were opened yesterday. The victim, most probably an overseas visitor, “was swept away yesterday when spillwater from the Mercury Energy-owned dam, near Taupo, surged down the Waikato River, and her body was found this morning,” said a report.

“Mercury Energy Chief Executive Fraser Whineray said the power company was reviewing the warning signs and procedures in the area to see if any improvements could be made,” said the report.

“We’ll be … checking to see if there’s anything further that can be done to minimise the risk, but we’d really ask, please, if people can not be down in the rapids area because it can be very dangerous when those spillways are open.”

Adding insult to injury, in the time-honoured Kiwi tradition, Taupo mayor said locals tended to stay away from the area on the Waikato River where the woman drowned.

Police [thankfully incompetent] marksmen fired at least 6 shots, but missed five times, said Acting Canterbury Police District Commander. The sixth bullet missed the upper part of the head and hit the 24-year-old Christchurch victim in the cheek.

Police haven’t revealed why they shot the man in the face. Was he holding the [alleged] firearm in his mouth?

Major fraud and suspected double murder simply called “alleged conflicts of interest”

Posted by te2ataria on February 3, 2017

Spit in their face: The next time someone says NZ is one of the least corrupt countries…

“Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority’s (CERA) staff employed to bring investment to Christchurch set up their own company through which investors would pay them a fee on private property deals,” according to a Stuff investigation, and this is just tip of the iceberg.

What people are saying about CERA:

Labour leader Andrew Little said: “I cannot believe an arrangement like this – where you have public servants also allowed to operate a private company and further their private interests – was approved and signed off.”

Asked what he thinks about The Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (DPMC) and the State Services Commission (SSC) investigating the private property dealings connected to three former CERA staff [Murray Cleverley, Gerard Gallagher and Simon Nikoloff] Little said SSC and DPMC lacked sufficient investigative powers to conduct an effective inquiry.

“It must be the Auditor-General. The Auditor-General has powers to compel and look not only at what happened with those people and the rest of CERA but what happened at the Minister’s office as well.

“A week after New Zealand is rated top in the world anti-corruption index [George Soros Transparency International -Editor] this is just the stuff that undermines that. If our oversight mechanisms mean this wasn’t picked up then we have some serious work to do.”

Who killed Julian Carver and Michelle Mitchell?

Julian Carver, the former chief information officer at CERA, has died unexpectedly, police said.

Father of two Julian Carver, 44, was the former chief information officer at CERA. He was found dead in  suspicious circumstances, this blog believes, at a psychiatric hospital in Christchurch on January 2, 2017.

Person found dead near Ashburton in suspected suicide

Police believe a man found dead on the roadside near Ashburton on Tuesday committed suicide. [A “win-win” situation, so they don’t have to investigate foul play!]  http://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/news/89030631/person-found-dead-near-ashburton-in-suspected-suicide

Growth-enhancing drug found in NZ beef in Taiwan

New Zealand authorities claim they are puzzled as to how a shipment of beef sent to Taiwan tested positive for a growth-enhancing drug ractopamine, which is banned in most countries because of its impacts on animal and human health.

“New Zealand is one of only 27 countries in the world to allow its use, but restricts it to the pork industry which says it is not widely used here.”

Peter Thiel’s ghost citizenship mystery deepens

Posted by te2ataria on February 1, 2017

Only in the Zombie Democracy:

Gay billionaire and Trump supporter became a NZ citizen even though he didn’t intend to live here!

It has been revealed that Thiel was granted NZ citizenship even though he had never lived in New Zealand and made plain in his application that he did not intend to in the future—two statutory requirements to become a citizen.

“He attended a private citizenship ceremony at the New Zealand Consulate in Santa Monica in August of 2011.”

Prime Minister Bill English has reportedly defended the Government’s decision to grant him citizenship, saying Thiel had “demonstrated his commitment to New Zealand” over the last 11 years after becoming a resident in 2006.

“TradeMe founder Sam Morgan and Xero CEO Rod Drury wrote letters in support of Thiel’s application.”

It’s unclear how the NZ citizenship might affect his U.S. citizenship, if any.

What is clear, however, is that Theil has powerful links to the spy world.

“Thiel is the co-founder of Palantir, a secretive data analysis company that works with several spy agencies, including potentially New Zealand’s.”

Murder Mysteries, Political Intrigue?

‘Sudden Death’ of a Well-liked Doctor

Dr. Chris Cresswell, acting head of Whanganui Hospital’s emergency department, was found dead next to his mountain bike on Saturday.

In September 2015, a senior doctors’ union “condemned an ‘outrageous’ move by Whanganui District Health Board to summon a hospital doctor to a disciplinary meeting over his [Dr Cresswell’s] part in a protest against the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement.”

“He was also politically active and a member of the Green Party. He was a major player in raising awareness of climate change, and publicly opposed and demonstrated against the Trans Pacific Partnership and seabed mining.”
