Just how far up our tushi does the Chinese arm reach?

Part two: It’s much worse than you thought – New Zealand is of major strategic interest to China

Chinese Influence & American Interests
PROMOTING CONSTRUCTIVE VIGILANCE

Report of the Working Group on  Chinese Influence Activities in the United States [and eight other countries including New Zealand.]

Summary of Findings

This report, written and endorsed by a group of this country’s leading China specialists and students of one-party systems is the result of more than a year of research and represents an attempt to document the extent of China’s expanding influence operations inside the United States.  While there have been many excellent reports documenting specific examples of Chinese influence seeking, this effort attempts to come to grips with the issue as a whole and features an overview of the Chinese party-state United Front apparatus responsible for guiding overseas influence activities. It also includes individual sections on different sectors of American society that have been targeted by China. The appendices survey China’s quite diverse influence activities in other democratic countries around the world.

. . .

Around the world, China’s influence-seeking activities in the United States are mirrored in different forms in many other countries. To give readers a sense of the variation in China’s influence-seeking efforts abroad, this report also includes summaries of the experiences of eight other countries, including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, and the UK.

 

NEW ZEALAND

The issue of Chinese influence operations in New Zealand began to attract significant attention in September 2017 when Anne-Marie Brady, a professor at the University of Canterbury, published a detailed assessment of that country’s experience in the weeks prior to national elections.

1. China’s influence operations in New Zealand are rooted in the same set of policies and institutions that guide its work globally, often proceeding outward from efforts targeted at the diaspora community. As has been observed elsewhere, influence operations in New Zealand have increased markedly since Xi Jinping became general secretary of the Chinese Communist Party. The Chinese government considers New Zealand an “exemplar of how it would like its relations to be with other states.”

2. One unnamed Chinese diplomat even characterized relations between the two countries as similar to China’s close ties with totalitarian Albania in the early 1960s.

New Zealand is of strategic interest to China for several reasons. As a claimant state in Antarctica, the country is relevant to China’s growing ambitions in that territory. It manages the defense and foreign affairs of three other territories in the South Pacific.

It is an ideal location for near-space research and has unexplored oil and gas resources.

Most critically, as a member of the “Five Eyes” security partnerships with the United States, Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom, New Zealand offers enormous possibilities for Chinese espionage.

New Zealand is particularly vulnerable to Chinese influence because it is a small state of 4.5 million people with strong trade ties to China. China is New Zealand’s second largest trading partner and a critical market for two of its most important sectors, tourism and milk products. It should be noted that New Zealand has historically pursued closer ties with China than many other nations. What is changing is the willfulness with which China appears ready to exploit this dynamic and to subvert New Zealand’s continued ability to independently shape its policy priorities.

Examples of improper influence in New Zealand include revelations that a member of Parliament concealed that he had been involved with Chinese military intelligence for fifteen years prior to immigrating to New Zealand; a New Zealand company found to be violating bans on exports to North Korea via its Chinese partner; and the almost complete domination of local Chinese-language media by pro-PRC outlets

Chinese Diaspora

There are currently two hundred thousand ethnic Chinese in New Zealand, primarily concentrated in Auckland. During the Cold War, Chinese New Zealanders “were neither pro-CCP nor pro-PRC” and its community institutions were “proudly independent.” Now, few activities are noticeably independent of Beijing.

In addition to its embassy in Wellington, Beijing coordinates its engagement with the diaspora through an Overseas Chinese Service Center, established in Auckland in 2014.

The organization considered most closely connected with PRC authorities in New Zealand is the Peaceful Reunification of China Association of New Zealand, which was founded in 2000. Controlled by the United Front Work Department, it has encouraged bloc voting in the ethnic Chinese community, fund-raising for friendly ethnic Chinese political candidates, and organizing of protests. The current leader of the association, a businessman in the food industry, also heads or has leadership roles in other United Front organizations in New Zealand and has been publicly listed as an adviser to the Beijing Overseas Chinese Affairs Council.

Several current ethnic Chinese individuals active in New Zealand work “very publicly” with China’s United Front Organizations in New Zealand.

3. In return they have benefited from fund-raising events held by the Peaceful Reunification Association, which has encouraged ethnic Chinese to vote for them. In the 2017 elections, a woman who led the New Zealand Chinese Students and Scholars Association was placed on the Labour Party’s election slate, but the party did not receive enough votes for her to enter Parliament. Chinese individuals active in New Zealand politics have also attended Peaceful Reunification Association meetings, where they stated their intention to promote China’s policies with respect to Tibet, promoted a think tank tied to the Belt and Road Initiative, and repeated slogans from Xi Jinping in local campaign materials.

Politics

In 2017, it was disclosed that Yang Jian, who to date remains a member of Parliament, concealed that he had been a student and teacher at two of China’s military intelligence colleges for fifteen years before immigrating to New Zealand.

He omitted this history on his English-language resume for his position at a New Zealand university, his permanent residency and citizenship applications, and his parliamentary position, but he disclosed it selectively to those speaking Chinese.

Yang has acknowledged the veracity of these reports, including that he was a member of the Chinese Communist Party, but claims he ceased his affiliation after leaving the country in 1994. Since entering government, Yang “has been a central figure promoting and helping to shape the New Zealand National government’s China strategy” and was a member of the Parliamentary Select Committee for Foreign Affairs, Defense, and Trade from 2014 to 2016, which would have given him privileged access to information.

4. Chinese influence efforts targeted toward New Zealand politics transcend the diaspora community to include campaign contributions and the cultivation of relationships with former senior officials. Individuals with strong ties to United Front organizations have donated several million dollars, primarily to the National Party. One such individual, who donated $112,000 to the National Party in 2017, is listed as an officer of no fewer than seven United Front organizations.

5. Senior politicians who have secured high-profile roles in Chinese companies include a former party leader and members of Parliament who serve on the boards of the New Zealand affiliates of major Chinese banks. A former minister of finance serves on the board of a majority-Chinese-owned New Zealand dairy. In late September, a former prime minister who now represents an American company’s interests in China attracted attention for the sale of property “well above market rates” to an undisclosed Chinese buyer. Local politicians have also been targeted.

Business

Chinese companies have also been instruments of interference in New Zealand. After acquiring a stake in a local telecom company in 2011, Chinese telecom giant Huawei went on to win the contract to build New Zealand’s 4G wireless network in 2013.

Huawei also established research partnerships and other investments in the country that may be leveraged for nonbusiness purposes. In another instance, New Zealand aeronautics company Pacific Aerospace in 2014 partnered with Beijing Automotive Group on the sale of planes to the Chinese market. In 2017, Pacific Aerospace was charged by New Zealand Customs with knowingly and illegally exporting parts to North Korea via its Chinese partner.

Universities

New Zealand has long-standing scientific cooperation agreements with China, most of which are benign. However, since China renewed an emphasis on civil-military research integration in 2015, New Zealand, like other countries hosting major research institutions, has been targeted for its potential to further these aims. New Zealand universities have partnerships with several Chinese universities linked to China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA), including the PLA Institute of Military Culture (Massey); the National University of Defense Technology (Auckland, Massey); Northwestern Polytechnical University (Canterbury), Shenyang Aerospace University (UNITEC), and Xidian University (Otago, VUW). New Zealand regularly hosts doctoral students who were graduates of these universities and also hosts current students and staff on short-term fellowships. Some New Zealand academics have roles at PLAlinked universities. The potential for these relationships to be exploited requires a reevaluation of government policies on scientific exchange.

6. Civil Society

Media are a key target of China’s influence efforts. New Zealand’s local Chineselanguage outlets all have content cooperation agreements with China’s Xinhua News Service, participate in annual media training conferences in China, have at times employed senior staff affiliated with the Communist Party, and have hosted CCP propaganda officials. CCP officials have given direct editorial instructions to Chineselanguage media in New Zealand as part of the CCP’s strategy to blend overseas content with that in the PRC. On television, a Chinese-language channel has removed Taiwanese programming from its network. Xinhua has also established its own television station.

With respect to English media, China Daily in 2016 established a partnership with the Fairfax newspapers in Australia and New Zealand. The Chinese embassy has sponsored the travel of journalists and politicians. In other instances, donors with close connections to the Chinese government have donated to organizations that provide research funding and subsidize journalist and youth visits to China, as well as exhibitions, book publications, and other activities that “promote a non-critical view of China.”

China’s representatives in New Zealand also put considerable pressure on New Zealanders who speak up critically on China-related issues. Since publication of her initial report on Chinese influence operations in the country, Anne-Marie Brady has experienced break-ins at her office and home, according to testimony before the Australian Parliament’s Intelligence and Security Committee.

7. Conclusion

New Zealand’s government, unlike that of Australia, has taken few steps to counter foreign interference in its internal affairs. Charity fund-raising, which has been used by Chinese United Front organizations to mask contributions, remains excluded from disclosure requirements. New Zealand’s intelligence service still cannot investigate cases of subversion and foreign influence inside its political parties without the approval of the service’s minister, whose political calculations may inhibit action. And media regulations remain inadequate to address improper influence by means other than outright ownership, which may also merit reform.

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:

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.”

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.”

Good riddance, you disgusting hyena

UNFORTUNATELY, it’s eight years too late!

John Key quits after quadrupling his ill-gotten wealth in eight years while doubling as PM.

John Key has announced his resignation as Prime Minister of New Zealand, citing family reasons for leaving!!

The vampires will hold a meeting next Monday (December 12) to decide the new party leader and Prime Minister.

Key has already endorsed blood-sucking Bill English as his replacement.

“Whoever the caucus votes for will have my unwavering support, but if Bill English puts his name forward then I will vote for him.

“For 10 years now Bill and I have worked closely as a team. I have witnessed first-hand his leadership style, his capacity for work, his grasp of the economy, his commitment to change and most of all his decency as a husband, as a father, a colleague and as a politician.”

Key, calling himself “a commercial guy,” has been promoted by his stable-masters to take up board positions, possibly with companies in Australia.

The $64-trillion Question: What if Obama Wins?

Posted by te2ataria on August 24, 2008

“When push comes to shove …”

The following note submitted by “Victoria” [named changed,] a reader from Kenya, has been edited for brevity:

Dear Moderators – I’m a proud African. … My cousin, who is an American, her friend and I have all experienced extreme racial prejudice in New Zealand. … I am very alarmed by your recent article about the fate of my fellow countrywoman Dr Jeannette Adu-Bobie. … I have also read your page about anti American sentiment in New Zealand … which my cousin and her friends also confirm. … I have noted that the New Zealand ruling elite is moving ever closer to the Chinese regime politically, economically and “ideologically.” … believe that it’s only a matter of time before another world war breaks out over resources …

My questions:

1. Should New Zealanders be allowed to interfere in the US Presidential elections?

2. What would New Zealand do, if Senator Barack Obama wins presidency?

3. When push comes to shove in the coming resource war, how would you stop New Zealand from siding with its new solemate, China, and prevent it from supplying biological weapons to the Chinese regime to use against the United States?

Another Racist Murder?

Posted by feww on April 15, 2008

Why do foreigners have the annoying habit of getting themselves killed in New Zealand?

The man whose body was found in the Waikato River is identified by New Zealand police.

He was 17-year-old Tianye LU, a Chinese national.

As expected, New Zealand police said, “there were no suspicious circumstances linked to Mr Lu’s death.” Report

Does it matter to the Chinese Government that its citizens are being killed [‘found dead’] in new Zealand rivers and on NZ roads, or do they have more important business to take care of?
