Christchurch mosque shooting: Alleged gunman sent death threats two years before attack
10 Apr, 2019 9:29am 3 minutes to read
https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/arti ... d=12220933

A Melbourne man has revealed that accused Christchurch gunman sent him death threats more than two years before the mosque shootings.

The man had reported the threat to Australian police in 2016 – and was only told to block the alleged gunman on Facebook.

The man said the accused sent him a death threat after he had criticised the United Patriots Front (UPF).

He kept screenshots of the threats made in August that year, the ABC reported.

The contact took place via Facebook messenger and the accused mosque gunman told the man: "I hope one day you meet the rope".

The Australian-born accused gunman defended the UPF, which is an anti-immigration group, as "the leading ethno-nationalist group within Australia".

"When you speak against the UPF you speak against my right to a home for my people and my culture," he wrote.

"This marks you."

The accused gunman warned the man to "choose your words carefully" and "think of who you insult".

"I hope you one day see the light and if you are a Marxist I hope you one day meet the rope."

Three frames from the gunman's banned video
Showing three figures in red
I am told this is standard US Navy Seal procedure for handlers in radio contact with base to okay a military attack
As is the strobe light to disorientate the victims which the gunman used throughout the mosque attack.

ONE clearly walks past his parked car on the left with left front window down apparently giving the go ahead for the attack before the gunman pulls away

TWO is stood at the end of the alleyway which leads to the Mosque, turning and walking off left just before the gunman turns into the alleyway. The gunman looks to the left and the figure in red is clearly in view.

THREE is stood with his/her back to the outside garden wall of the mosque as the gunman leaves in his car he looks to the left and we see the figure

What was John Podesta doing in New Zealand until the day before the Mosque Shootings?
16 March 2019 adm-zagami
https://leozagami.com/2019/03/16/what-w ... shootings/

I would like to outline oddities that I have noticed in connection to the recent New Zealand terror attack and the presence of John Podesta until 24 hours before the tragic event. Only seven days earlier, Hillary Clinton’s former presidential campaign manager was in New Zealand where he appeared in a T.V. interview conducted by Newshub, as the victim of “The world’s most notorious political hack.” At the end of the interview John Podesta was said to remain in New Zealand to preside over what was described as “A Global Progressives Event.”

The event was called “The Path to Progress” :

https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/john-po ... 6954455309

However, in the same interviewJohn Podesta also said that New Zealand is a “big juicy target.”

Can this only be a coincidence or is there a macabre synchronicity connected with this tragic event? Only days after Podesta called New Zealand a “big juicy target” we have the Christchurch shooting. During the same interview he also said that hacked information could be weaponized as fake news, and stated that, “Vladimir Putin must be sitting in the Kremlin saying this is the best return on investment I ever got – I’ve got a pliant President of the United States.”

Clinton’s manipulative campaign manager, John Podesta, working with the Vatican Illuminati as outlined with evidence in my latest book Confessions of an Illuminati Vol.6.66, said in the same interview that aired on the 7th of March 2019, that we should all be “very worried” by Russia and China. Strangely enough, they are two countries he and his brother and business partner Tony love very much. Tony Podesta even made $500K lobbying for a Chinese firm convicted of illegal sales to Iran, and Podesta’s business dealings in gas, aluminum, uranium, and his banking in Russia, have often been pointed out.

John Podesta, who left for Australia the day before the “terrorist attack” occured, praised the “superstar” Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern saying to the press that: “She’s made an impression on the world. She’s somebody that people are paying attention to. “Wow! You have our attention, as the cowardly acts of the New Zealand Mosque Massacre demonstrated to the world the biggest failure in the intelligence and security apparatus of the country, or a deliberate attempt to start a clash of civilizations. Something is fishy about Podesta’s presence in New Zealand, remember he is an agent of the Illuminati and an asset of Jesuit and Vatican intelligence.

The Christchurch shooting, Eastern Europe's far-right and a 'cherry-picked reading of history'
ABC Radio National
By freelancer contributor Michael Colborne for Late Night Live
https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-04-10/ ... e/10983542

Updated 10 Apr 2019, 2:07pm

It was the first thing I noticed as news of the Christchurch shooting came in — the patch on the back of the shooter's rucksack, something that was also emblazoned on the cover of the rambling manifesto.

It was far from the first time I'd seen it.

I'd seen it on t-shirts sold by far-right fashion brands in France. I'd seen it in photos of shields held by white supremacists at the violent "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville in 2017. And, here in Ukraine, I'd seen it on the paraphernalia of the far-right Azov movement.

It's a sonnenrad (sunwheel) or black sun: a symbol commonly used by the far-right, including outright neo-Nazis, originally adapted from a mosaic on the floor on the SS Generals' Hall.

Seeing it in the context of Christchurch reminded me of just how interconnected the global far-right has become.

A manifesto was sent to police believed to be sent from the Christchurch shooter.

A wade through the swamp that is the manifesto shows a peculiar imagined version of Eastern Europe.

And it is clear the shooter matters to some in that region's far-right.
The Balkan link

We know the Christchurch shooter spent a lot of time in Europe. But what's been missed in some coverage of his travels are his specific travels through Eastern Europe, including the Balkans.

Police in Croatia have stated that he was in the country between December 2016 and January 2017; some reports suggest that he also spent time in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Serbia.

These visits are perhaps reflected in what was scrawled on the weapons allegedly used in the shooting.
Christchurch attacks warn of environment that allows hate

When lives are tragically cut short, it is generally easier to explain the "how" than the "why".

The weapons bore the names of a number of figures in the history from the region — all of whom who, in some way, had fought against the Ottoman Empire that ruled most of the region for almost five centuries.

And the song that was playing as the shooter filmed himself driving to commit the alleged murders is one that glorifies Bosnian Serb war criminal Radovan Karadzic, recently sentenced to life in prison for his genocidal crimes against Bosnian Muslims.

"The Balkans have an almost mythical status in the collective imagination of the contemporary far-right movement," says Jelena Subotic, a professor of political science at Georgia State University.

It's a place where in the far-right's telling, she says, "white Christians" have fought against Muslims for centuries, whether in the form of battling the Ottoman Empire or trying to exterminate the Bosnian Muslim population in the 1990s.
Cherry-picking history

But the way the far-right interprets the histories of Eastern Europe is hardly accurate.

"There's a manipulated and cherry-picked reading of Eastern European history that appeals to white nationalists," says Tom Junes, a historian and member of the Human and Social Studies Foundation Sofia.

Space to play or pause, M to mute, left and right arrows to seek, up and down arrows for volume.
Audio: Hear Michael Colborne talk about the Azov movement and the Christchurch terror attack (Late Night Live)

The way far-right extremists venerate events like the Serbs' defeat in Kosovo in 1389 (paving the way for Ottoman rule) and the Polish victory over the Ottomans in Vienna in 1683 are examples of what Dr Junes derides as "a superficial and myopic reading of history".

Authorities have confirmed that the Christchurch shooter spent six days in nearby Bulgaria last year.

He appears to have visited a number of historical sites there, including the site of a bloody battle of the Russo-Turkish war in 1878.

That battle helped pave the way for an Ottoman defeat and the establishment of an independent Bulgaria.

"Shipka pass 1877-78" was reportedly scrawled onto one of the ammunition magazines used by the shooter.
The Azov movement

But there's another country mentioned in the manifesto, the one I'm in right now: Ukraine.

Ukraine is home to a resurgent far-right that uses the same symbolism as the Christchurch shooter, but it hasn't been mentioned much over the past few weeks.

To some extent, this is fair — despite some speculation, we don't yet know for sure if he was even in Ukraine.

Ukraine is home to the Azov movement, a far-right movement originally formed in 2014 as the Azov Battalion to fight Russian-led forces in eastern Ukraine. It quickly earned controversy as a place that accepted open neo-Nazis into its ranks.

Five years later it's become a multi-pronged movement with a political party (National Corps), a street militia and an infrastructure that offers everything from youth camps to mixed martial arts training sessions.

In the manifesto, I saw so much of what I've become used to seeing from writing about the Azov movement.

A need for Europe to undergo a rebirth or renewal — or "Reconquista" in Azov's terms. Talk about ethno-nationalist homelands and ethno-states. A deep disdain for democracy. References to Valhalla, the place in Norse mythology where warriors go after they die in battle and a common neo-Nazi trope. Talk about a need to march through a country's institutions, to play a longer-term game and seek positions of power and influence in society.

The only thing missing is Muslims — Ukraine's far-right isn't as centrally driven by Islamophobia — and the cheap obscurantist polish Azov's leading lights use to dress up their ideas and downplay the extreme nature of them.
'Blood, fatherland, faith'

And that black sun once again; its dozen of what look like lightning bolts springing out from the middle.

I see it on Azov's patches, being worn by soldiers, and even used as decoration in one of their social centres.

I saw it last night as several hundred Azov movement members, many of them teenagers, marched through the Ukrainian capital; I lost count of how many black sun patches and tattoos I saw.

I've seen it on stickers on lampposts around Kiev, promoting a group called "WotanJugend" — a neo-Nazi group with roots in Russia but now based in Kiev.

"Blood, fatherland, faith," the stickers say in Russian, with a black sun and the groups' logo, a Tyr-rune: a symbol graduates from Nazi academies once wore around their arms.

WotanJugend has connections with the Azov movement — you can buy WotanJugend shirts, emblazoned with black suns and runic imagery used by the SS, from a small shop inside Azov's Cossack House in central Kiev.

And WotanJugend knows about the Christchurch shooting.

On their website, they've got the manifesto translated into Russian, and they link to the live-streamed videos of the shooting.

They even have a post discussing the shooter, where they describe what he did in Christchurch and praise him openly for it.

I won't quote directly, but suffice to say these Ukraine-based neo-Nazis think the Christchurch tragedy was totally justified — for them, the shooter is a hero.
Listen to the podcast

From razor-sharp analysis of current events to the hottest debates in politics, science and culture, Late Night Live puts you in the big picture.

With supporters like these around the world, the Christchurch attacks likely won't be the last act of far-right terror inspired by a global network of insidious ideas.

As acts like those in Christchurch are explicitly endorsed by far-right friends from around the globe, these acts "are thus transformed by lone actors and their supporters into acts of heroic sacrifice," Cathrine Thorleifsson from the Centre for the Analysis of the Radical Right (CARR) wrote in the wake of the attacks.

"Far-right extremist terrorists might operate alone," Dr Thorliefsson concluded, "but unfortunately their supporters ensure that they are not lonely."

DW INVESTIGATES
Christchurch: The myth of the lone wolf attacker
Investigators say the terrorist attack on two mosques in New Zealand was carried out by a single perpetrator. But referring to him as a "lone wolf" deceptively conceals a breeding ground of extreme-right terror.
https://www.dw.com/en/christchurch-the- ... a-47970011

Norwegian terrorist Anders Behring Breivik, who murdered 77 people on July 22, 2011, is often cited as a prototypical "lone wolf" perpetrator of terrorist attacks.

"Europe is becoming increasingly familiar with attacks by extremists, but Breivik's actions made him the deadliest lone wolf attacker in the continent's history," Norwegian journalist Asne Seierstad wrote in Newsweek in April 2016.

The alleged perpetrator in Christchurch, who was initially described as a lone wolf only a few hours after the terrorist attack on two mosques, deeply worshipped Breivik.

One of us - a tale of an extremist loser
'No group ordered my attack'

The investigation is still in its preliminary stages; At this point, it is not yet entirely clear whether the man arrested and charged in relation to the terrorist act, Brenton Tarrant, wrote the 74-page manifesto himself.

He circulated the document on social media shortly before the attacks and sent a copy to Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's office. It reads: "I am not a direct member of any organization or group, though I have donated to many nationalist groups and have interacted with many more (...) No group ordered my attack, I make [sic] the decision myself."

At the same time, the author emphasized: "The total number of people in these organizations is in the millions, the total number of groups in the thousands."

Though consciously portraying himself as an individual perpetrator, Tarrant apparently also sees himself as part of a larger movement. How does this track with the "lone wolf" concept?

Christchurch: Outpouring of support for Muslim community
The 'ideological hinterland'

"The idea that terrorists operate alone allows us to break the link between an act of violence and its ideological hinterland," British journalist Jason Burke wrote in an article for The Guardian on March 30, 2017.

Burke has written several books on the "Islamic State" (IS) terrorist group and al-Qaida. He believes that the lone wolf theory "implies that the responsibility for an individual's violent extremism lies solely with the individual themselves."

Modern terrorists may not always belong to a group that can be clearly named such as al-Qaida, the "Islamic State” or the National Socialist Underground (NSU), an extreme-right German terrorist cell that was responsible for a string of murders. Nevertheless, their radicalization takes place in the social climate in which they live. The internet and social media allow terrorists unprecedented ways to network globally and the ability to propagate their ideologies — right up to livestreaming their attacks on Facebook, as was the case with the Christchurch attack.

Most experts agree that terrorists are products of their time: An increase in intolerance has established itself in recent years as a global social trend, fueled by political discourse that is becoming increasingly populist. The yearning for simple answers polarizes; strangers and those with different viewpoints quickly become enemies. Extremism is taking root in mainstream society — a trend that is reinforced with the digitalization of human life.

The social component of terrorism

Real relationships are replaced by virtual ones. But even online interactions have real consequences. David Sonboly, who murdered nine people at a Munich shopping mall on July 22, 2016, was heavily involved in online xenophobic networks. Sonboly deliberately chose the fifth anniversary of Breivik's terrorist attack as the date for his shooting. He received praise from certain circles of like-minded people for the choice of date.

Some jihadi attackers who struck in Europe were presumed to be lone wolf perpetrators who idealized IS, but actually had virtual contact with IS members in Syria and Iraq immediately before carrying out their attacks. Anis Amri, who drove a truck into the Breitscheidplatz Christmas market in Berlin, was one of them.

"Terrorism is not something you do by yourself, it is highly social," Burke has written. "People become interested in ideas, ideologies and activities, even appalling ones, because other people are interested in them," and perpetrators often want to become famous and inspire copycats.

Should Christchurch attacker Tarrant actually prove to be the author of the 74-page manifesto, then he is explicitly making parallels between himself, Breivik and Dylann Roof, the white supremacist who shot nine black churchgoers in Charleston, South Carolina on June 17, 2015: "I have read the writings of Dylann Roof and many others, but only really took true inspiration from Knight Justiciar Breivik."

Marwa El-Sherbini, a pharmacist who lived with her husband and son in Dresden, was killed in Dresden's district court on July 1, 2009. She was stabbed by a 28-year-old Russian-German man shortly after testifying against him in a verbal abuse case. He'd previously called her a "terrorist" and "Islamist." El-Sherbini is considered to be the first murder victim of an Islamophobic attack in Germany.

Breivik gave the Hitler salute in the courtroom; Tarrant formed the "OK" symbol with the thumb and index finger of his right hand during his first appearance in court on Saturday and spread the other three fingers — now a common sign between white far-right extremists.

It is known that both Breivik and Tarrant were in contact with other far-right extremists at home and abroad, both in real life and online. Tarrant in particular has traveled extensively, including in Europe. On his Facebook profile, which has since been deleted, he shared extremist content and articles about right-wing extremists from Europe, including at least one report by DW on right-wing extremist soldiers in the Bundeswehr — Germany's armed forces — who for him are apparently kindred spirits.

Breivik and Tarrant view themselves as modern-day crusaders in the battle to preserve the purity of an allegedly threatened white European breed. Both regard Muslims in particular to be "invaders" who strive for world domination.

The 'blood and soil' ideology

Australian Senator Fraser Anning released an official statement immediately following the Christchurch terrorist attack: "Let us be clear, while Muslims may have been the victims today, usually they are the perpetrators. Worldwide, Muslims are killing people in the name of their faith on an industrial scale." While Prime Minister Scott Morrison swiftly announced that his government would censure the senator, Anning's comments are not an isolated incident. Islamophobia, racism and white nationalism have long managed to find their way into the upper echelons of western democratic governments, be it in Australia, the US, or Europe.

Both right-wing populism and right-wing extremism, when defining the concept of nationhood, make equal use of the "blood and soil" ideology — a Nazi-era nationalist slogan expressing a "racially" defined national body ("blood") united with a given settlement area ("soil").

Like Tarrant, who styled himself the "defender" of Christchurch, critics say the far-right nationalist Alternative for Germany (AfD) party leader Alexander Gauland spreads racist fearmongering notions of ethnic (white, Christian) Germans being "replaced” by immigrants, usually Muslims. Indeed, the AfD derives its nationalist isolationist policies by drawing on an alleged "ethnic inversion" ("Umvolkung" — a loaded Nazi-era term historically used by the extreme right to describe demographic change through immigration). During an appearance in Frankfurt in September he said: "We have no interest in becoming [all of] humanity. We want to remain Germans."

Alexander Gauland
Co-chairman Alexander Gauland said the German national soccer team's defender Jerome Boateng might be appreciated for his performance on the pitch - but people would not want "someone like Boateng as a neighbor." He also argued Germany should close its borders and said of an image showing a drowned refugee child: "We can't be blackmailed by children's eyes."


1234567891011
Terrorists rarely work alone

Tarrant did not radicalize in a social vacuum any more than did Christian Lappe, a German citizen who converted to Salafism — a radical, ultraconservative form of Islam — and died fighting for IS in Syria. The same goes for the NSU terrorists Uwe Böhnhardt, Uwe Mundlos, and Beate Zschäpe, who carried out racially motivated murders in Germany.

In this context, a study on 119 individual perpetrators of terrorism presented by the International Center for Terrorism Studies (ICST) at Pennsylvania State University in February 2013 is revealing. According to the study, the vast majority of supposedly "lone actor terrorists regularly engaged in a detectable and observable range of behaviors and activities with a wider pressure group, social movement or terrorist organization."

The ICST study drew another dramatic conclusion: "In the time leading up to most lone-actor terrorist events, evidence suggests that other people generally knew about the offender's grievance, extremist ideology, views and/or intent to engage in violence.”

For a large majority (83 percent) of offenders, others were aware of the grievances that later spurred their terrorist plots or actions. In a similar number of cases (79 percent), others were aware of the individual's commitment to a specific extremist ideology. In 64 percent of cases, family and friends were aware of the individual's intent to engage in a terrorism-related activity because the offender verbally told them."

In light of the findings and recent events, the comfortable "lone wolf" theory fails to hold true. Terrorists are part of society — and it is up to society as a whole to stop them.

Asne Seierstad: 'We must understand why Europe has come under attack'
Asne Seierstad has written books on personalities in conflict. She looks at Norwegian mass murder Anders Breivik with the same, unjudging eye as two women who became Islamists. Judgment, she told DW, is for her readers. (14.03.2018)

PRIMED TO KILL New Zealand terror gunman’s chilling arsenal of assault rifles and hundreds of rounds of ammo scrawled with bizarre symbols and names of mass killers
The suspect filmed himself shooting at worshippers at a Christchurch mosque in New Zealand, with 49 dead and 20 injured
https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/8642123/n ... lt-rifles/

A WHITE supremacist shooter scrawled a neo-Nazi symbol on his ammunition before unleashing a horrific mosque massacre that claimed the lives of at least 49 people.

The Black Sun, used in Satanism, was marked on the bag holding assault rifles and ammunition used in the attacks in Christchurch, New Zealand - with one shooting live-streamed on Facebook.

The weapons used in the massacre that claimed the lives of 49 people were covered in names of 18th century admirals and the Satanic Black Sun symbol

The weapons used in the massacre that claimed the lives of 49 people were covered in names of 18th century admirals and the Satanic Black Sun symbol
One gunman, calling himself Brenton Tarrant on social media, filmed himself firing more than 100 shots at those inside the Al Noor Mosque on Friday afternoon local time.

In the twisted footage shared online, the gunman can be seen taking automatic weapons from his boot.

He then enters and shoots down multiple people in the prayer room, as they run in panic. The man shoots several people from the car park before stalking through the building, picking off people and shooting bodies on the floor.

One witness claimed to LBC that the words "welcome to hell" were written on the side of one of the firearms as the gunman opened fire.

And the sick shooter appeared to have latched onto obscure battles that saw admirals beat back the Turks in battles across the 16th and 18th centuries.

What we know so far:
At least one terrorist opened fire at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, at 1.40pm local time on Friday
49 people have been killed - 41 were killed at Masjid Al Noor Mosque, seven at Linwood Masjid Mosque and one died at hospital, another 48 are in hospital with gunshot wounds and 20 are in critical condition
A gunman live-streamed the deadly attack on Facebook using a GoPro in footage too distressing to show
It was posted on a Facebook page belonging to Brenton Tarrant
It is understood the killer is an Australian who published a chilling 74-page manifesto before the rampage
A 28-year-old man has been charged with murder and will appear in court tomorrow
Among those named was Venetian Admiral Sebastiano Venier, who made his name at the Battle of Lepanto in 1571 - a date also written onto the assault rifle used.

The battle saw the Christian League decisively defeated the Turks. The name of Italian aristocrat Marcantonio Colonna was also scrawled onto the bags of ammunition, along with Șerban Cantacuzino who took part in the Ottoman campaign which ended in their defeat at the Battle of Vienna.

The name of Russian seaman Dmitry Senyavin was also written in white on the guns, who fought during the Russo-Turk war, along with military governor Ernst Rüdiger von Starhemberg, who battled in Great Turkish War.

British Admiral Edward Codrington was also named in the scrawl, having destroyed the Turkish and Egyptian fleet at the Battle of Navarino in the 1800s.

The gunman filmed himself preparing for the massacre in his car, wearing military-style body armour and helmet that read "let's get this party started".

The shooter posted a vile 74-page manifesto online, claiming he had carried out the attack to "take a stand to ensure a future for my people".

In the rambling message, he also wrote the shooting was "to take revenge for Ebba Akerlund".

The 12-year-old Swedish girl had been murdered in the Stockholm lorry attack at the hands of asylum seeker Rakhmat Akilov, from Uzbekistan, in April 2017.

Three men and one woman are in custody following the shootings at Masjid Al Noor Mosque and Linwood Masjid Mosque in Christchurch at around 1.40pm local time.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern confirmed the death toll had hit 49 and said the country had been placed on its highest security threat level.

She declared: "It is clear that this can now only be described as a terrorist attack."

She said four people in police custody held extremist views, but had not been on any police watchlists.

WHO WERE THEY? Confusion over suspects in mosque massacres
AT least 49 people were today killed when shots were fired in two mosques in New Zealand.Amid the chaos, conflicting reports have emerged over just who was responsible over the horrific attacks.Initial reports suggested there were two gunmen involved as police were called to the two Christchurch mosques just 10 minutes apart.However, it is unclear how many suspects were involved in the shootings that has left the city in shock.New Zealand Police Commissioner Mike Bush confirmed four people had been arrested by cops in the aftermath of the shootings.One was initially reported to be wearing a suicide vest, but police later discounted that theory.One man, a 28-year-old, has been charged with murder and will appear in court tomorrow.Police confirmed two other people had been apprehended, with authorities "working to understand what their involvement is", Commissioner Bush said.The fourth person is believed to have been armed at the scene, but it is not clear if they were involved in the attack. They remain in custody.New Zealand and Australian authorities have both confirmed the suspects had not been on agency watch lists.

The shooter is believed to be a 28-year-old Australian.

The video was published on the Facebook account of a man named Brenton Tarrant – and this profile has since been removed.

The names of the gunmen have not yet been confirmed by police.

He also says "Remember lads, subscribe to pewdiepie", referencing the controversial YouTuber.

Following the shootings, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said it is "one of New Zealand's darkest days".

In a press conference, Police Commissioner Mike Bush warned police in the city and elsewhere will be carrying guns for the next week or so.

Mr Bush said "there have been some absolute acts of bravery" in the arrests of the four attackers as he confirmed a "significant" amount of casualties.

investigative writer John Philman wrote:NZ POLICE FIREARMS/AMMUNITION MAIL ORDER FORM
Very interesting.

Of course, when you look at the finer details on it, it proves, as the Dunedin Police Arms Officer signed it on 7th December 2017, confirming Brenton Tarrant's 10-year firearms licence expired on 8 September 2027
Which means the NZ Police must have issued him with his Firearms Licence only 5-6 weeks after he arrived in the country - with no family, no partner, no job, no footprint or references in the NZ community VIGOROUSLY REQUIRED BY ALL FIREARM LICENCE APPLICANTS to qualify for being granted a licence.
So why did the NZ Police issue him with a licence like this so easily and quickly?
Could the real reason be he was in their custody and control all along. I looked up his address on Google-Earth - nothing special.
However, do remember, that in my book I mention Israeli Associate Professor YORAN BARAK who works in the Department of Psychology in the University of Otago (which is only 15-minutes drive away from 112 Somerville Street, Dunedin, (noted as Tarrant's address on the NZ Police mail order form here) is also a CONSULTANT ON POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY FOR THE ISRAELI DEFENSE FORCES!
 Highly suspicious I would think.

On the role of Sanjana Hattotuwa
From social media:

Oh cracks me up how MOHAMED does most of the posts hahahaha
I just read this on Telegram tho so it may explain Mohamed being in bed with Cindy. To hide the truth about the mosque thing def makes me feel it was some kind of set up…..
“St John's ambulance staff from CHCH mosque events LIED.
FFS, any Govt shutting down public access to evidence for 30 years is a clue something is wrong.
It's been picked apart by thousands of eagle eyed observers. Chch was a giant crock of *. It was one of the most sloppy false flags I've personally studied.
It's laughable the Govt thinks we will just accept their version of events at face value. Our eyes work fine, we have seen all the mistakes the Govt, Police, Media, St John's and subsequent 'Social Change' orgs have made in their desperation to leverage the lie to maximize the theft of our rights.
The same * Sri Lankan terrorist who advises Te Punaha Matatini and the UN about online extremism (Sanjana Hattotuwa) just happens to base himself in Dunedin conveniently before the CHCH events. REALLY? A man with 15+ years in online extremist, white supremacist research experience, who also is a UN Special Advisor just happens to be in the same small city as Brenton Tarrant.
He then flew very quickly to Geneva Switzerland to debrief his UN run NGO about CHCH.
In the wake of CHCH, the UN Secretary General visited CHCH mosques and also met with Sanjana Hattotuwa.
3yrs later he is trying to silence Kiwis.
DO YOU SMELL THAT?

‘Fruit loop’: Dunedin hunters reveal how Brenton Tarrant acted at rifle range

https://www.news.com.au/world/pacific/f ... 26943096e5

A New Zealand man who met accused terrorist Brenton Tarrant at a rifle range has described the moment that left him “shaken”.
Candace Sutton in Dunedin March 18, 2019 - 12:01AM

The accused mosque massacre shooter was a gun club “fruit loop” who allegedly “shot like he meant it” with high powered rifles in practise with other shooters.

Police believe Tarrant is responsible for Friday’s Christchurch massacres — and allege he travelled between two packed mosques and gunned down 50 people.

He was arrested 36 minutes after the initial attack at the Al Noor Mosque.

Tarrant also allegedly made verbal rants about young skateboarders and his right to carry firearms which left one animal hunter “shaken” after spending a day shooting with the accused.

But the hunting enthusiast claims nothing was done when he told police in the southern New Zealand city of Dunedin about Tarrant’s odd behaviour.

Tarrant is accused of the worst massacre in New Zealand history, a terror attack that started shortly after 1pm local time on Friday in Christchurch when he stormed a mosque and started shooting.

The 28-year-old, who is from Grafton in NSW but moved to Dunedin two or three years ago, allegedly shot and killed 50 people in two mosques during a rampage he filmed and livestreamed.

He was arrested shortly after the attack and has been charged with one count of murder. Further charges are expected and he did not request bail on Saturday.

In Facebook posts obtained by news.com.au, one hunter described a shooting session between Tarrant and his friends at a remote rifle club south of Dunedin as worrying.

The post, from November 2017, talks about members of the rifle club and how “one in particular had me really worried”.

News.com.au has confirmed the man being referred to is Brenton Tarrant.

It reads: “He was complaining about skateboarding kids at the uni saying if they can carry their boards then he should be allowed to carry a gun.”

A Facebook respondent in the same forum replied, “I’d make a call to the arms officer the guy sounds like a fruit loop”.

The hunter updated the post on Saturday, saying, “I’d warned the police about the rifle club where he trained … un f***ing believable.”

He claims police told him “they are a strange bunch” but “they are harmless enough”.

He said: “My day with (Tarrant) had me shaken to say the least.”

Dunedin hunter Tristan, 34, who had a polite nodding acquaintance with Tarrant over the last two years, described to news.com.au the behaviour which alarmed him.

“He shot like he meant it and with high powered [weapons]. You don’t need all that for hunting animals, which we do humanely,” Tristan said.

At the pale blue clapboard home with a tidy garden rented by Brenton Tarrant in the sleepy Dunedin suburb of Anderson Bay on Saturday, police armed with rifles were still guarding the property on Saturday

After Friday’s attack on two Christchurch mosques, police swooped on the rental house and bomb dogs were sent through the property’s ceiling.

This follows the alleged discovery of two IEDs (improvised explosive devices) on vehicles, at least one of which was associated with Tarrant’s Dunedin address.

Tarrant appeared in Christchurch District Court on Saturday for less than three minutes. He smiled at media inside the courtroom.

The judge said further similar charges were likely and remanded him in custody until April 5.

The attack on the two mosques came minutes after the 28-year-old allegedly sent a vile 73-page manifesto to several prominent email addresses, including that belonging to New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

In it, he described himself as “just a regular white man” from “a working class, low-income family … who decided to take a stand to ensure a future for my people”.

A spokesman from Ardern’s office confirmed the document was sent to a generic address not checked by the prime minister herself.

New Zealanders have showed resilience in the face of the worst act of terror in the country’s history.

An imam who was leading prayers at the Linwood mosque at the time of the attack said the Muslim community would not be shaken by the massacre.

“We still love this country,” said Ibrahim Abdul Halim, vowing that extremists would “never ever touch our confidence”.

'We don't breed mass killers': Accused Christchurch shooter's gun club

https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/111336 ... s-gun-club

Blair Ensor and Sam Sherwood09:04, Mar 17 2019

A former military machine gunner who visited the gun club where the mosque terror suspect trained says he was deeply troubled by its culture and lodged a complaint with police.

Police allege Brenton Tarrant, 28, was the gunman who entered two mosques in Christchurch on Friday and shot dead 50 people.

Tarrant obtained his firearms licence in November, 2017, and began buying firearms the following month.

He lived in Dunedin and was a member of the Bruce Rifle Club in Milburn near Milton, in South Otago.

Pete Breidahl, 40, a former member of the New Zealand Defence Force, says he attended the club on three occasions, the last of which was in November, 2017, and overheard members talking about mass shootings, the zombie apocalypse and Martin Bryant, the man responsible for the Port Arthur Massacre.

He was concerned the ethos at the club was the "perfect breeding ground" for a mass shooter and lodged a formal complaint with the police.

"Forty nine New Zealanders got killed and I'm pretty f...ing upset about it. I think it could have been prevented."

The rifle club says it will carry out a review of its culture in light of the terror attack, but strongly refutes its culture bred a killer.

Breidahl, a long range shooting instructor who owns a hunting business, told Stuff on Saturday he was "heartbroken" by the terror attack in Christchurch.

While living in Dunedin, he said he went to the Bruce Rifle Club three times. The first two visits were to check the range out and zero a rifle. The third, in November, 2017, was a military shoot day.

"The conversations I had and the people I met literally terrified me to my core and I left early.

"The place just stunk of inadequacy compensated through use and ownership of semi automatic firearms. It was pretty f...ing disturbing."

He said he went to the Dunedin Police Station not long after and lodged a formal complaint with the arms officer.

"I was advised they were well aware of the Bruce Rifle Club - 'they're just a bunch of silly old duffers, that's just what they're like down there, they're a bit funny but it's nothing to worry about'."

Bruce Rifle Club vice president Scott Williams said he strongly denied Breidahl's allegations, but said the club would carry out a review of its culture.

Any talk of zombies may have "been in jest" and those involved in the conversation might have been "watching Walking Dead on TV".

"We certainly don't breed any mass killers."

Williams said club members were "shocked and stunned" when they heard Tarrant had been arrested in connection with Friday's terror attack.

There were no warning signs he would commit such an atrocity.

"I think we're all pretty …. saddened," he said.

A police spokeswoman said initial inquiries showed no record of Breidahl's complaint, but "we are looking into the claims further".

Probe into Tarrant's travel to eastern Europe in November

https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/111336 ... s-gun-club

Bulgarian officials are investigating Brenton Tarrant's recent trip to eastern Europe four months ago.

Prosecutor-General Sotir Tsatsarov has spoken after a special meeting of security, intelligence and law enforcement chiefs called in Sofia by Prime Minister Boiko Borissov in the wake of the Christchurch terror attack.

Sources in Bulgaria have told the Herald that while watching the dramatic coverage emerge from New Zealand, they noticed Cyrillic script and eastern European inscriptions on the automatic rifle magazines found at shooting scenes. They included the names of famous battles and historical figures who fought against Ottoman rule.

Authorities have confirmed that victims with Turkish heritage were among the 49 killed in yesterday's massacre.

Tsatsarov told Bulgarian media in Sofia that Tarrant had been in Bulgaria between November 9 and 15 last year, after arriving on a flight from Dubai.

He had hired a car and travelled on a route from Sofia via Pleven, Gabrovo, Bachkovo, Kazanluk, Blagoevgrad and Pernik, including other places in Bulgaria, the Sofia Globe reports.

"Tarrant apparently visited various places in Bulgaria, including Dryanovo, Pleven, Blagoevgrad, Plovdiv, Asenovgrad, Bachkovo and Bansko," the news outlet said.

"From Bulgaria, he had flown to Bucharest, from where he rented a car and went on to Hungary."

Ardern confirmed today that Tarrant had travelled around the world with "sporadic periods of time spent in New Zealand".

Tarrant had talked online about an alleged trip to Pakistan.

Decoding a Possible False Flag Attack and Coup D’état in Slow Motion Behind the Christchurch Mosques Massacre
Secret City: Was the Christchurch Mosques Massacre a U.S. Deep State-sponsored terrorist event designed with a ‘Black Mirror’ reset to pull New Zealand back into the Empire’s orbit?

What potential hidden objectives might be behind a possible false flag black op in Christchurch 15 March 2019? What meta-data in the week of the event, the event itself and in the aftermath are consistent with signs of a false flag attack and a Coup D’état in Slow in Motion? Is the post-Christchurch attack Great Policy Collapse of the Ardern Labour Coalition Government one of the hidden objectives of a transnational Deep State network? Was the targeting of Muslims at two Christchurch mosques simply a horrific attack by a working class white supremacist? Or was the Christchurch Mosques Massacre the work of Deep State network of white supremacist super-rich oligarchs, national security state operatives and political élites – foreign and domestic – to construct a new state enemy to replace the New Zealand state’s traditional enemy since 1840: Māori?

=====

By Steve ‘Snoopman’ Edwards

Uncanny Timing

The timing of the accused terrorist lone gunman attack at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand on March 15 2019 was exquisitely potent – for reasons that were not immediately apparent. It was felt with a sharp intensity in New Zealand – a relatively peaceful country where the population is used to racism being inflicted by state, council and corporate institutions on the indigenous Māori people more subtly – usually by means of a thousand systemic cuts.

‘The Christchurch mosques shooter-accused ‘Brenton Harrison Tarrant’ is alleged to have shot 100 Muslim worshippers at two mosques, the Masjid Al Noor Mosque and the Linwood Islamic Centre, killing 51 and injuring 49, on Friday March 15 2019.[1] It is also alleged the accused-gunman used two AR-15 semi-automatic assault rifles, two shotguns and a hand-gun loaded with hollow-nosed ammunition designed to shred flesh to maximize shock, injury and lethality.[2] This civilian mass shooting was the world’s first live-streamed and New Zealand’s largest peace-time massacre.[3]

The timing was exquisitely potent because it converged with a numerous events occurring simultaneously that when taken together add up to what is known in the U.S. military parlance as a *, normally associated with an unpredictable set of circumstances that converge to overwhelm a seemingly well-planned military operation. The * of events in the week of the Christchurch Mosques Massacre sketched here are consistent with a false flag attack designed to look like it was unrelated to the horrendous plot of a ‘lone wolf terrorist’ – as the official narrative accepted quickly and uncritically by the Establishment Media would have New Zealanders and the world believe. That the massacre was possibly inflicted by a ‘lone gunman’ may turn out to be the case. The supposition explored here is that ‘Tarrant’ may have been identified as a suicidal, psychopathic white supremacist and chosen for hits on the mosques due to his killer prowess, his capacity to fool people and his lack of empathy – along with ‘flattering’ appeals to his narcissistic European Superiority Complex.

The post-Christchurch Mosques Massacre policy changes of the New Zealand Government – led by Ceremonial Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern – are examined for the possibility that a coalition of dominant capitalists, national security state insiders and a transnational deep state network may have benefited from the mayhem.

Conspicuously, N.Z.’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern was away from the capital city, Wellington when the Christchurch mosques shooter-accused ‘Brenton Harrison Tarrant’ – who described himself as an anti-immigration fascist – sent his email warning of an imminent attack, subject-lined “On the attack in New Zealand today”. At that moment, Ardern was opening the multicultural WOMAD festival in New Plymouth, a city whose founders forged their long term viability plotting the escalation of the New Zealand Wars, and whose dynamism today is fuelled by the oil and gas industry. The potency of a multicultural festival primarily sponsored by the oil and gas consortium, Todd Energy, owned by N.Z.’s richest dynastic ruling family, the Todd’s – coinciding with Ardern’s public appearance at the same festival just as the gunman’s email arrived in the inbox at the Prime Minister’s office, together with the Ardern Labour Coalition Government’s moratorium on issuing new off-shore oil and gas exploration licenses – make these linkages to the timing of the attack hugely symbolic.
Incoming Policy Platform Collapse: NZ PM Jacinda Ardern speaks at a H2 Taranaki Roadmap energy conference, followed by a brief appearance at WOMAD, among whose principal sponsors are Todd Energy, an exploration partner with oil and gas company, OMV.


The surface symbolism embedded in the Christchurch Mosques Massacre event colliding with the WOMAD festival could not have been missed by N.Z.’s political élite and foreign state actors observing this extraordinary mass shooting. It must have triggered their internal radars to read to meta-data of the event itself, as well as the clustered events prior to the massacre to see if there were an élite criminal group signalling they were advancing a coup d’état by means of a false flag attack and to keep watching to detect who benefited in the after-math – in keeping with game theory.

Recall that during the ‘inauguration period’ following the establishment of the Police counter-terrorism squad in 1977, that the Anti-Terrorist Squad was given a secret tour as ‘guests’ of the Shell BP Todd consortium whom were invested strategic oil and gas assets, including the Maui Platform off the Taranaki coast?[4] You wouldn’t, unless you were in the know, or had read the book, Zero-Alpha: The NZ Police Armed Offenders Squad Official History published in 1998. Recall that in recent years, the N.Z. Defence Force has lead multi-national, multi-agency exercises based in the South Island, called Exercise Southern Katipo, involving scenarios that included capturing environmental protestors harassing off-shore oil rigs, amid a more general rebellion, and forcing a prime minister out of office who won’t accept an election defeat?[5] You have got to wonder if the scenarios that appeared to be outward looking at the Pacific, had a long-range eye on New Zealand.

At the time of the mosques attacks, there just happened to be three multi-national, multi-agency training exercises occurring in, around and above Christchurch. The coincidence of drills, exercises and war-games finishing just prior to or as an attack occurs is a key sign of a false flag black operation. Such drills, exercises and war-games provide the cover for deep state actors to take the training scenarios live, exploiting the confusion about whether the phenomena is an exercise or a real world situation. These are the key sign of a false flag black op – as Jon Rappoport’s article, “Training Exercises Dovetail with Mass Shootings, What are the Odds?” points out.[6]

The ‘lone’ gunman’s uncanny timing meant that when the nation’s entire paramilitary police were training in a hospital in the southern suburb of Cashmere – they were drawn away from the CBD Police Stations, located dead centre between the targeted mosques. Meanwhile, the country’s other top snipers in the Special Air Service (SAS) were also engaged in a multi-national training exercise, while the N.Z. and U.S. air forces trained above.

What the Odds? Three multi-agency, multi-national training exercises were underway when Christchurch became an environment hostile to Muslim worshippers.

The Police training exercise involved the Armed Offenders Squads (AOSs) working in conjunction with the counter-terrorism Special Tactics Groups or STGs, and Australian and Hong Kong Police and was focused on aggressive ‘room clearances’ using shot-guns, semi-automatics and smoke bombs.[7] Meanwhile, snipers from the N.Z. Defence Force, the Australian military and Asian countries including Hong Kong, were participating in the Defence Force shooting range exercise when the alleged ‘lone gunman’ inflicted mayhem. The Royal New Zealand Air Force were also conducting a 10-day joint military low-flying training exercise with the United States Air Force called Exercise Nocturnal Reach and included low-flying training in a simulated hostile environment, day and night, with drop zones involving the Hercules C-130 transport aircraft from the 40th Squadron and included a flight path intersecting with Christchurch.[8]

Were these training exercises held to demonstrate that the supply of security was being withheld? And then, once mayhem was inflicted, was the intention to supply a sudden show of force that would work as a mass psychological mechanism of manipulation to manufacture gratitude for the national security state amid the shock?
Uncanny Timing? When the ‘lone’ gunman struck, the nation’s entire paramilitary police were training in a hospital – and therefore drawn away the CBD Police Stations, located dead-centre between the targeted mosques. Meanwhile, the country’s other top snipers were also engaged in a multi-national training exercise, while the NZ and US air forces trained above.

After-all, just prior to Christmas 2018, the State Services Commission’s “Inquiry into the Use of External Security Consultants by Government Agencies” found that the national security state have been too busy committing resources to spy on activists, independent journalists and earthquake insurance claimants.[9] Moreover, the Independent Police Conduct Authority’s report on high-speed Police chases was published the day of the Christchurch Mosques Massacre too. The pursuit and capture of the accused gunman – ‘Brenton Tarrant’ – restored the public image of the Police,[10] not least because Commissioner Mike Bush deflected attention from Parliament’s squandered nine minutes,[11] the training exercises that drew Police Special Squads away from the CBD[12] and the uncanny timing of the Independent Police Conduct Authority report, “Fleeing Drivers in New Zealand”.[13]

The accused-Christchurch mosques shooter’s email was sent to 71 recipients nine minutes before the attacks commenced and contained the attached ‘manifesto’ – “The Great Replacement”.

Deceptively, Jacinda Ardern performed public statements on Sunday 17 March 2019 claiming the manifesto contained no specific details, and there was not enough time to stop the impending attacks on two mosques. Yet, the manifesto did contain location details that any nine year-old with a lap-top and internet connection could have been found in one minute flat by using the active noun ‘attack’ from the email’s subject-line as a search term.

Emergency Failure Cover-Up: Statements made by N.Z. Police Commissioner Mike Bush on April 17th 2019 conflict with N.Z. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s statements of Sunday March 17. Ardern falsely claimed the manifesto, which was received nine minutes before the attack, did not include a location or specific details. Bush claimed the Parliamentary Services Security Team received the email at 1:40PM, which contradicted Ardern’s claim one month prior. The Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet has oversight of national security and the Prime Minister is also the Minister of National Security and Intelligence.

A quick search for the word “attack” – as used in the email’s subject line revealed its use spiked at 14 times on page 11 – including the questions, “Why did you choose New Zealand as a place to attack” and “Was there any reason you attacked that(those) mosque(s) in particular?” – in bold type. On the following page, ‘Tarrant’ mentions – twice – carrying out attacks on the “Christchurch and Linwood mosques” and a “mosque in Ashburton” – if he made it there before being caught.[14]

As I have shown in my article “Christchurch Decoded?” with screen shots of the ‘manifesto’, maps of Christchurch, and the fraudulent timeline produced by the N.Z. Police a month after the massacre, the alleged ‘lone wolf terrorist’ not only exploited a security flaw in New Zealand’s Parliament that resulted in nine minutes being squandered. The Parliament’s security protocol stipulated forwarding threatening emails to the Security Team, rather than also ringing the Police. By sending his email to 71 recipients including the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, other politicians including National Party opposition leader Simon Bridges and several news media outlets nine minutes before he inflicted his carnage, the accused ‘lone wolf gunman’ created a potent mechanism of coercion because all concerned have participated in covering up a terrible truth: no one need have died.

The Great Policy Collapse

In 2017, the N.Z. Labour Party campaigned to limit immigration, end homelessness and child poverty, bring in an across-the-board capital gains tax regime – especially on speculative house flipping – to reform the intelligence and security services, and implement a zero-carbon based economy framework, ostensibly to address climate change. All of these policy platforms have collapsed spectacularly in the aftermath of the Christchurch Mosques Massacre.

Labour’s limits on immigration policy has been eliminated, especially since Ardern’s line – “They are us” – about Muslim immigrants being New Zealanders, quickly became a cultural meme. Jacinda Ardern signed up to the United Nation’s Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration on Immigration on December 17th 2018. The same day, the UN signings deadline rituals, the New Zealand’s Executive Council signed an Order in Council allowing police to process online applications for people wanting to become a gun dealer, get a firearms license, import a restricted weapon, or get a permit to buy a military-style semi-automatic. The Arms (Electronic Transactions) Amendment Regulations 2018 removed the restriction to present such applications physically at their nearest police station and allowed, for instance, a buyer of a restricted weapon to show that weapon to police by video call.

Because the Ardern Coalition Government includes NZ First, the Ardern Coalition Government’s signing up to the Global Migration Compact is intriguing because it occurred with little public debate, and without any apparent mandate. Ironically, Ardern’s Labour Party needed the support of NZ First, who formed originally to preference policies that placed New Zealanders ‘first’ in response to the National Party’s policy of using immigration to fuel economic growth. This pre-Christchurch shooting policy collapse on immigration gets more intriguing given that the signing of the UN’s Global Migration Compact occurred the same day as the Order in Council to ease restrictions on buying guns, ammunition and accessories online. Regardless of whether or not this easing of gun regulations helped the accused gunman ‘Brenton Tarrant’, Prime Minister Ardern was placed in a position that would become embarrassing if ever someone obtained restricted weapons, accessories, or ammunition – such as the hollowed-nosed flesh shredding bullets used by Tarrant and the Police Special tactics Groups and Armed Offenders Squads – via an online application.
Blunt Message: The Christchurch shooter’s Twitter account @brentontarrant showed pictures of an AR-15 that appeared to match that shown in the Facebook Live feed. The rifle butt carried the message “Here’s your Migration Compact”.

In other words, New Zealand’s Deep State appears to have been signalling the direction it was taking in possible conspiracy with the Deep States of the US-NATO military empire.

Intriguing, the Daily Shabah reported March 15 2019 on the symbols, numbers and words drawn on Tarrant’s AR-15 that appeared on the Facebook Live feed and seemed to match those taken from images that the Twitter account handle @brentontarrant posted on Wednesday March 13th. In the article, “New Zealand mosque shooter names his ‘idols’ on weapons he used in massacre”, the Daily Shabah reported the writing included the message, “Here’s [your] Migration Compact!”, in reference to a United Nations Global Compact for Migration.

And after the fortnight of remembrance vigils, services and private visits to console traumatized Muslims, Ardern toured through some of Auckland’s commercial construction and infrastructure projects, which was timed exquisitely with the N.Z. Herald’s ‘The Big Build’ series’. As fortune would have it – this six-part ‘Big Build’ series coincided with a well-orchestrated public relations campaign to attack the Ardern Labour Coalition Government’s presentation of the Capital Gains Tax (CGT) policy review report. Dramatically, Ardern’s Coalition Cabinet capitulated, and the Prime Minister scape-goated Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters, who doubles as the leader of the New Zealand First Party.[15] Given that the Coalition Government signed up to the Global Migration Compact with little public debate, and without any apparent mandate the same day it relaxed restrictions on guns, accessories and ammunition, the excuse that NZ First would not support a Capital Gains Tax regime is deeply ironic.

This Capital Gains Tax (CGT) obstacle was signposted in early February, when right-wing political commentator John Armstrong outlined the massive difficulty that the Ardern Labour Coalition Government would have in getting any measure of a capital gains tax introduced into law.

Big Build: The NZ Herald‘s Big Build series showing Auckland’s infrastructure and commercial projects began after two weeks of mourning for slain Muslim worshippers, and was timed to outshine Labour’s capital gains tax ‘conversation’.

In his February 9 piece “Labour’s capital gains tax push is political Russian roulette”, Armstrong wrote the Ardern-Labour Government was, in essence, trying to “eradicate that long-held shibboleth”, or customary practice, that New Zealand was a special place exempt from capital gains taxes. The mission to persuade the public to accept even a weak capital gains tax provision in legislation, said Armstrong, was “pretty much mission impossible”. Yet, Labour’s Finance Minister Matt Robertson’s was “sojourning into … politics version of the Valley of Death” and absent the impending PR counter-attack, Armstrong expected to see “Labour crash and burn.” Pertinently, Armstrong asked, “why is Labour playing the political equivalent of Russian roulette with a pistol whose every chamber is seemingly loaded with a bullet?” Peters apparent unwillingness to accommodate any capital gains tax measures was also signposted by Armstrong when he said, “Mr Peters has to work out … whether he can secure more kudos from being seen to soften the legislation which Mr Robertson puts on the table instead of imposing a blanket veto.” Armstrong also noted that the Labour’s other coalition partner, the Green Party, had “long included a capital gains tax amongst its manifesto commitments.” He finished his piece writing, “One thing is for sure though. Should Mr Robertson’s ‘national conversation’ be supplanted by National’s Conversation, then Mr Robertson might as well wave the white flag right here and now.” That ‘National Conversation’ was a coordinated pro-corporate counter-attack that came from the National Party, pro-corporate lobbyists and other well-healed interest groups and was driven through media coverage, including the The NZ Herald‘s “Big Build” series.

Political Valley of Death: Commentator John Armstrong warned the Labour Party was playing the equivalent of political Russian roulette with every chamber of a gun loaded.

Because the Ardern Labour Coalition Government folded on reigning in speculative house-flipping – the prime minister has lost credibility to champion ending homelessness, poverty and inequality – as right-wing political columnist John Roughan gloated.[16] A targeted capital gains tax on housing speculation – particularly in the third-most expensive city in the world relative to income, Auckland – would likely have caused the overheated housing market bubble to pop, and in turn, would have triggered the commercial property boom to implode and thrown the government’s capacity to sustain the infrastructure projects into crisis. I can say this with confidence because I comprehend the fragility of the N.Z.’s debt-based financial system,[17] in a world awash with over $200 trillion in liquid debt.[18] I studied the root causes of the Global Financial Crisis and Bank Bailouts of 2007 and 2008 for my masters thesis, “It’s the Financial Oligarchy, Stupid”, in which I proved that once the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) started, the financial authorities of the U.S. and the U.K. colluded with the global banks to advance the crisis along to a point where their respective governments would think they had no choice but to bailout the banks.[19] Indeed, the financial system is dancing on a pin-head, because the fragile, debt-laden New Zealand economy would collapse with simply a quarterly sales drop of 200 residential properties in Ponsonby, Grey Lynn, Westmere and Herne Bay, Auckland.

To be super-clear, I am not saying that Armstrong knew a mass shooting was coming. What I am saying is the ‘National Conversation’ coordinated as a pro-corporate counter-attack that he signposted and then occurred in the aftermath of the Christchurch Mosques Massacre were not enough in itself to gain a capitulation on the capital gains tax. Before the Christchurch Mosques Massacre, the main opposition party, National, was not regarded as having a hope of winning the 2020 election – except by those, perhaps, who deserve to go to Hell, if it were to exist. According to the gloating John Roughan – who typed an autobiographical sanitized account of John Key’s life, Portrait of a Prime Minister – Ardern’s capitulation on a capital gains tax regime meant the Prime Minister of the Labour-led Coalition Government has lost credibility to press for measures to deal with inequality through fair taxation.[20] And everyone will think she is soft, Roughan said in his opinion article, “Political capital needs to be spent”. It is crucial to point out that neither Roughan or Armstrong mentioned the wealthy ruling Rich-Listers who dominate the New Zealand economy and its political trajectory through their control over strategic resources, technologies and institutions in alliances with their overseas counterparts.

The super-wealthy were well motivated to exercise oligarchic wealth defence and offence over a planned capital gains tax regime. In every crisis, at least one oligarch is betrayed. How far the most aggressive oligarchs would go to protect their strategic control over resources may be detectable by later defections in the form of betrayals, fall-outs and humiliations. A coalition of super-rich dynastic families and individuals, can only exist in societies of extreme wealth inequality – as Jeffrey Winters points out in his book, Oligarchy. It turns out that oligarchs actually thrive in crisis-ridden societies, as Webster Griffin Tarpley stated in his “Against Oligarchy” lecture series. Therefore, the Ardern Government’s publicized goals to address poverty, homelessness and inequality through measures such as a capital gains tax regime was a threat to the very existence of New Zealand’s white supremacist Rich-Listers and the Pākehā-dominated ruling class ‘One Percenters’ whom loyally serve them.

Unfortunate Line-up: Behind the images of three former Labour prime ministers – Norman Kirk, David Lange and Helen Clark – are histories that Jacinda Ardern and James Shaw seemed to be blissfully unaware of during the 2017 election campaign.

Not surprisingly, then, the metadata the day prior to the mosque attacks shows that Green Party co-leader James Shaw was punched in his face by a man yelling about the United Nations. When it is recalled that in 2017, Shaw posed with Ardern campaigning to stop new oil and gas exploration permits being issued as part of a cross-party platform to develop a ‘zero-carbon economy’, you have to wonder if the face punch was a codified communication signalling to those attuned to metaphor that Ardern’s Coalition Government environmental policy platforms threatened domestic and transnational energy interests – and were going to be made to take a hike. Was this face punch signalling that N.Z.’s Deep State was advancing the game in reply to the TV3 News appearance of former Clinton White House Deputy Chief of Staff John Podesta, who warned the N.Z. Government of a cyber-attack election hack in 2020 – a few days prior to the attacks? Podesta’s warning may have been a codified communication calling ‘showtime’ for the Police Special Squad and SAS training drills occurring at the time of the mass shooting in Christchurch to ‘Go Live’ – as I outlined in the first article, Christchurch Decoded?

Either way, it was an unfortunate line-up of Labour Party prime ministers that Ardern and Shaw stood in front of on the election trail in 2017, given that some long-time Labour Party members suspect the highly popular Norman Kirk was poisoned. The fair-minded Kirk, like his Australian counter-part Gough Whitlam (1972-75) was pro-indigenous land rights, and therefore an affront to white supremacist super-rich oligarchs, foreign and domestic. For his sins, Whitlam was fired by the Australian Governor-General John Kerr, on orders of the CIA and MI6, as journalist John Pilger reported in his piece, “The forgotten coup – how America and Britain crushed the government of their ‘ally’, Australia”. Kirk’s other secular sins included his opposition to de-regulating the financial system and media ownership – both ‘necessary’ precursors for a stealthy corporate takeover of the economy.

The next Labour Party prime minister in the line-up, David Lange, who capitulated to the terror-sponsoring French state when, in July 1986, he released two of France’s DGSE agents for their part in the 1985 Rainbow Warrior bomb plot in which 13 agents had infiltrated Greenpeace. Next to Lange in the 2017 election trail photo is former anti-Vietnam War protestor Helen Clark who as prime minister sent the Special Air Service (SAS) to Afghanistan on the basis of undisclosed ‘compelling’ evidence that the Taliban Government were harbouring Al Qaeda terrorists blamed for planning the 9/11 attacks. Clark’s Government failed to conduct a counter-investigation to test the official narrative, question why no forensic testing of steel, concrete and dust at the World Trade Center occurred in the aftermath of 9/11, and how it was that there was a resurgence in opium production in Afghanistan after the U.S. invaded – despite the Taliban outlawing the production of the drug that the CIA actually relies to fund its black ops – as Professor Peter Dale Scott shows in his book, Drugs, Oil and War: The United States in Afghanistan, Columbia and Indochina.

Thus, while Ardern was hugging, listening and saying the right things to traumatized, grieving Muslims – and her image was projected onto the iconic 829-metre skyscraper Burj Khalifa in Dubai – all of her party’s policy platforms were either collapsing or in some cases, were soon to plummet with free-fall speed, kinda like three buildings on September 11 2001 when the Twin Towers and Building 7 at the World Trade Center imploded, exploded, pulverized, dustified or fried, as a result of just two planes, strange financial dealings, and technological inventions, and symbolic proximity to the World Financial Center which remained remained intact, alomng with the obelisk domino-shpaed Millenium Hotel – as any nine-year old with a laptop and an internet connection could now work out in 30 minutes to 30 hours – depending on the degree of brainwshing.

Even the policy platform of a zero carbon-based economy has collapsed. On the eve of the one year anniversary of Jacinda Ardern’s announcement that New Zealand would not issue any new oil and gas exploration permits,[21] Australian oil company OMV, announced its plan to drill in the Great South Basin off the south east-coast of the South Island as soon as the Southern summer of 2019-2020.[22]

Because this zero carbon-based economy is tethered to a Smart Grid, which is already partially plugged into the private-public surveillance state – whose illegal machinations were so under the scrutiny of the State Services inquiry in 2018 – it is possible to detect a coalition of commercial interests whom might have believed they could no longer ‘do gentleman’s cartel business’ in an old boys’ network way with the Ardern Labour Coalition Government. It would appear, then, that such cartelized big business interests found it mutually beneficial to orchestrate a reset with the national security state and their international Deep State counterparts.

Constructing a New State Enemy

During the 2017 election year, the N.Z. Labour Party colonized the Māori vote in a strategic response to the political ground shifting, wherein the capacity had been lost to overtly – and to some degree, covertly – continue casting Māori as scape-goats to resolve the frequent crises of N.Z.’s Pākehā-dominated Ruling Class.

Since February 6 1840 – when the 1840 Waitangi Treaty was first signed between a few dozen indigenous chiefs of New Zealand Māori and the British Crown – and until recently, Māori were cast as New Zealand’s perennial scapegoat.


Invisible Brotherhood: Colonial era white supremacist Freemasons ensured their secret role in the ‘Maori Wars’ vanished by omission in the early reports, records and recollections of the Colonial Pākehā ruling class. [See: The Masonic New Zealand Wars]

The capacity of the N.Z. state to inflict overt racist attacks upon iwi (tribes) and hapū (family groups) for resolving the frequent crises of the various incarnations of the Crown, as well as the Pākehā-dominated ruling class and their public and private institutions, including the news media – ended – on February 6 2018.

Three major developments shattered the Neo-Colonial myth of excellent race relations that had been constructed by Pākehā-dominated ruling class to promote the idea that N.Z.’s institutions were not actively undermining Māori. This occurred in response to the indigenous people of New Zealand mounting a land and sovereignty rights resistance from the late 1960s that has culminated in the Māori Renaissance from the 1980s onward.

The first development that lead to the N.Z. Crown’s loss of capacity to overtly cast Māori as N.Z.’s perennial scapegoat was due to the backlash that occurred in the aftermath of the paramilitary Operation Eight ‘Urewera Raids’ of October 15 2007 – that became the multi-season news psy-op through to 2012. Crucially, the vicious intention that underpinned the Operation Eight ‘Urewera Raids’ was to undermine the Bay of Plenty tribe, Tūhoe, from gaining substantive sovereignty through the return of the Urewera native estate, by casting the Tūhoe tribe’s most visible face, Tame Iti, with a guerilla terrorist leader legend.[23] Maliciously, N.Z.’s spooks transposed this guerilla terrorist leader legend onto Iti from one that had been used to frame an Algerian asylum-seeker, Ahmed Zaoui, for character assassination – as journalist Selwyn Manning showed in his documentary, Behind the Shroud: Truth, Intelligence and Tradecraft.[24]
Next Poster Boy Frame-up: NZ’s Deep State scapegoated Tame Iti by casting him as a terrorist guerilla leader to avert looming crises by riffing off movies such as Sleeping Dogs.

It turns out that N.Z’s SIS relied upon a false biography, which had been inserted into the French, Belgium, and Swiss intelligence agencies by Algeria’s equivalent to the CIA, the DRS, (or the Département du Renseignement et de la Sécurité). By activating the scapegoat mechanism to primarily target Tame Iti, the New Zealand Crown was saved from a looming crisis.[25] If one tribe were to regain substantial tracts of lands lost through swindle, struggle or stealth, it would have set a precedent for other iwi and hapū to regain lands beyond the jurisdiction of Crown statute law, titles and neo-feudal tributes, regardless of prior Waitangi Treaty settlements. Because the national security state and the Clark Labour Coalition Government avoided disclosing to New Zealanders that Zaoui, a Muslim academic and former politician, had been framed as a guerilla terrorist leader, New Zealand’s spooks and their Deep State counterparts in the N.Z. Police were able to inflict the paramilitary raids of mid-October 2007 to save themselves, the Clark Labour Coalition Government and career Crown officials – particularly at the Crown Law Office – from deep scrutiny into what they considered as a mechanism of ‘national security’ state-craft: institutional racism.

The symbolism of terrorism focused on Māori worked to produce fear of ‘Otherness’ among the dominant Pākehā culture, as Brendan Hokowhitu wrote in his chapter “The Logic of Terror” for a book about the Operation Eight raids called, Terror in our Midst: Searching for Terror in Aotearoa New Zealand. Hokowhitu, among others, located the paramilitary raids on Māori communities within the context of the so-called War on Terror, and argued this global war was really aimed at undermining native sovereignty everywhere to consolidate the American Empire.

This backlash to overt targeting Māori was concurrent to numerous sustained studies – that have grown in number since – proving Māori were/are targeted for special treatment known broadly as institutional racism. These included findings that Māori would receive harsher treatment from law enforcement for offences, crimes and misdemeanors than Pākehā, as well as systemic racism in the public health system and over-representation in poverty statistics.

Framed Poster Boys: Three targets scapegoated in Global War of Terror-era multi-season news psy-ops to resolve crises of the New Zealand Crown’s own making.
[Pictured: Ahmed Zaoui, Tame Iti and Kim Dotcom]

The third development was my strategic efforts in the background through complaint mechanisms to the Press Council, the Broadcasting Standards Authority and the Human Rights Commission in the winter of 2017, which highlighted examples of institutional racism. The Press Council complaint was in response to a January 2017 opinion piece “English right to snub Waitangi’s wreckers and hotheads” typed by MediaWork’s breakfast show host, Duncan Garner, which was published in Fairfax’s Dominion Post newspaper,[26] to scapegoat the Waitangi host community at Te Tii Marae – a focal point for protest. The Broadcasting Standards Authority complaint was about biased reportage in MediaWorks’ Newshub newsroom about its Waitangi Anniversary 2017 coverage because the broadcast omitted how Bill English had benefited from a deceptive Wedge of Time stratagem set in motion by the Key Ministry ahead of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Treaty signing rituals in the Sky City Casino complex the previous year.[27] Newshub could have acknowledged its biased reporting had it not been culpable for covering up Te Tii Marae’s offer of a one-hour speaking slot to then-Prime Minister John Key in a political forum tent facilitated by Ngāpuhi political figure, Hone Harawira, at Waitangi 2016.[28] Together, these examples of institutional racism practiced by key MediaWorks personnel along with buy-in from Fairfax’s Dominion Post, worked to support Key’s dog-whistling racist propaganda and how the English Ministry benefited from the provocative move to host the Trans-Pacific Partnership Treaty signing the previous year just two days ahead of the 2016 Waitangi Treaty Anniversary Day.

These complaints highlighting institutional racism targeting Māori culminated in my two-year study tracking the machinations of the Key and English Governments, whom deployed antagonistic tactics in order to divide and coerce the far north iwi of Ngāpuhi to drop its stance that it never ceded sovereignty to the British in 1840, take a cash settlement from the Crown and submit to its sole-sovereign status. Because that piece was published on the popular conservative liberal website, The Daily Blog, on Waitangi Anniversary Day in 2018, N.Z.’s political élite would have seen it and realized the game of overtly casting Māori as N.Z.’s perennial scapegoat to resolve the recurring crisis of the Pākehā-dominated Ruling Class – was up. In other words, my February 6 2018 piece – “Waitangi Investigation: Steve Edwards – Harnessing the Herd to Hide a Historical Heist: The Crown’s breach of the Crimes Act” – was the moment when the National Party and the rest of N.Z’s political and corporate élite had to resign themselves to the Labour Party’s ’embracement’ or political corralling of Māori.[29] To be super-clear, this was the fall-back position of the Pākehā-dominated Ruling Class as they conceded some political gain to conservative liberal Māori and liberal conservative Māori.


Absolutely Positively Milked Maoris: A two-year study of the Key and English Government’s racist stratagem to scapegoat the Waitangi host community in order to coerce the far north tribe, Ngāpuhi, to submit and settle with the Crown was exposed on Waitangi Day 2018 when it was published on The Daily Blog.

The loss of Māori as the enemy of the Neo-Colonial New Zealand state cannot be overstated. In losing the capacity to overtly blame, target and distance Māori – the Pākehā-dominated Ruling Class not only lost a scapegoat mechanism it had been exercising since 1840. The Neo-Colonial State lost its staple internal enemy that the national security state needed to justify its participation in the resourcing-consuming ‘Five Eyes’ Echelon surveillance apparatus, the U.S.-NATO military empire and the global imperialist regime change projects that serve the West’s white supremacist super-rich capitalist coalitions’ perceived need for rampant capital accumulation to stay ahead of their oligarchic rivals from Russia, Asia, Africa and South America. For a time, Kim Dotcom became the state’s new enemy. In that episode, N.Z.’s Police noted in their Operation Debut planning document that they lacked a Trojan Horse mechanism to gain entry into the Dotcom’s Coatesville mansion for a raid timed to coincide with the passage of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) through the U.S. Congress in early 2012, as I showed in “Hollywood’s make-believe villain, Kim Dotcom (alias Kim Kimble).” But the multi-season news psy-op that was packaged into the paramilitary style raid of the MegaUpload founder’s country mansion is drawing to a close.[30] This is because Dotcom and his MegaUpload business partners will either get extradited to the United States, or the N.Z. Crown will be forced to capitulate under the weight of evidence showing a conspiracy to construct a legal precedent of trans-national extraditions, among other political objectives.
Trojan Horse Data WMD: The FBI convinced N.Z. Taskforce DEBUT Police to perform a paramilitary raid with a make-believe idea that Dotcom possessed a ‘doomsday’ data destruction device with a ‘mastercode’ to delete servers.

Therefore, it may be that the National Memorial Services to mark ‘Our fallen Muslim whanau’ were not simply a public grieving process, space to rethink community and an opportunity for non-Muslim New Zealanders to express sympathy. If the Christchurch Mosques Massacre were a false flag black op, then it would mean the National Memorial Services were part of a psy-op – that might transpire into a National Remembrance Day in 2020. That would be just two years after Māori finally got a Remembrance Day for the New Zealand Wars in 2018. Regardless of whether the Christchurch attacks were the horrendous carnage of a ‘lone wolf terrorist’ or a transnational Deep State false flag project, a National Remembrance Day for ‘Our fallen Muslim whanau’ would thereby work to slyly displace the special place of Māori because the recent memory of a ‘dark day’ would gain more emotional buy-in, rather than the many dark days for the ancestors of Māori.

The massacre in Christchurch has raised the status of immigrant ethnic populations, or ‘Others’ – particularly Muslims – and even caused the Prime Minister to declare New Zealand had zero tolerance for racism, as well as violent, hateful racial attacks. But, making a declaration does not change the fact that the Crown, Councils and Corporate boards still practice stealthy racism, since they continue a covert war to take more Māori ancestral land for development than they return. Therefore, the Deep State network operating within the national security state, the corporate apparatus and among their foreign-based counterparts had every reason to construct a new common enemy: the working class white supremacist.

Perhaps Tarrant’s cover required a low-rent approach, a white supremacist mass shooter persona and a script that didn’t make it too hard for the world’s national security blankets – ‘the news’ – to amplify, without having to explain difficult devilish details. For instance, the mass shooter’s timing was very ‘coincidental’ because it occurred when the Police, the SAS and the Air Force were all involved in multi-national training exercises. And perhaps his training at the Bruce Rifle Club in Milburn, near Milton in South Otago were part of the cover to hide a possible military-intelligence background. And the uncanny timing live-fed massacre that went viral on social media ahead of the March 27 passage in the European Parliament’s Strasbourg session of ACTA2, a legislative move which has paved the way for a Europe-wide upload filter on internet content.[42] The European Union is now obliged to fund an AI super infrastructure that will automatically censor online content before it is posted”. Moreover, the Christchurch mass shooting resulted in a meet-up between Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, French President Emmanuel Macron – who faces sustained dissent from the Yellow Vests movement – with tech giants such as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg at a summit, dubbed ‘Christchurch Call’, on May 15 in Paris. There at Elysee Palace, an accord to address internet ‘extremism’ including terrorist content was initiated between Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Daily Motion and Qwant, as well as 17 governments – Australia, Canada, the European Commission, France, Germany, Indonesia, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Jordan, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Senegal, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. Notably, the United States did not sign the accord, evidently due to issues that endorsing algorithm regimes would raise with 1st Amendment free speech rights. Therefore, under the cover of stopping the distribution of extremism and terrorist content online, the working class white supremacist’s terrorism video and extremist ‘manifesto’ have paved the way for internet censorship measures that the governments and transnationals whom comprise the US/NATO military empire have struggled for years to justify, get passed or agree to implement.

The so-called white supremacist’s censored ‘manifesto’, therefore, reads like a try-hard booklet written by deep state script-writers desperate to make it look like it was written by a ‘lone wolf terrorist’. For instance, the manifesto attributed to ‘Tarrant’ claims he is a Navy Seal graduate, trained in “gorilla [sic] warfare” and the U.S. armed forces top sniper, with over 300 confirmed kills. These are big claims to make. Threateningly, ‘he’ claimed to be in contact with his “secret network of spies across the USA” who were tracking everyone’s IP addresses who dared to describe him as a “bigot, racist, xenophobe, islamaphobe, nazi, fascist!” Curiously, these claims, threats and the spectre of a U.S.-based national fascist network do not appear to have been reported in New Zealand’s news media. Indeed, his selection of N.Z. for a mass shooting may also be a ‘tell’ of a black propaganda psy-op, since the gunman’s ‘manifesto’ had geopolitical aims that suggest it might have been authored by Deep State scriptwriters.

A Trojan Horse Device: Was the accused gunman’s email – which was sent to 71 recipients including the PM’s office and contained the manifesto – a Trojan Horse mechanism to capture NZ’s political elite, Police and news media?

‘Tarrant’ – who hates white Muslim coverts most – envisaged a balkanization of the United States along racial, cultural and political lines through the issue of firearms ownership that he hoped would spark a second American civil war to reduce the capacity of the superpower to project power globally. (It may result in the construction of a regional super-state that super-cedes the United States, or ‘A New World Order’)[31]. Therefore, the manifesto’s geo-strategic dark ambitions may be a ‘tell’ that ‘Brenton Harrison Tarrant’ is a phantom identity and behind that identity is a Deep State team,[32] who encoded the ‘manifesto’ with a revolutionary vision to trigger a violent consolidation to a multi-decade ‘strategy of tension’ in play since the JFK Assassination.[33]

It is, therefore, fascinating to note that in the metadata post-Christchurch attacks, the media coverage of white supremacists has avoided focusing on the most cohesive, well-resourced and dangerous minority cohort of white supremacists – the Pākehā Rich Lister oligarchy. In other words, the top 10th percentile of the ‘One Percent’ cohort of New Zealand’s Neo-Colonial Ruling Class whom exercise oligarchic wealth defense through their professional army of lawyers, accountants, bankers, politicians and friends in the national security state – whom together ensure that Māori do not rival their stealthy Neo-Colonial power structure. The Pākehā Rich Lister oligarchy’s control over strategic resources of New Zealand belies an economic and political oligarchic system that screams of institutional racism, wherein their huge economic wealth is translated into political power that ensures Māori do not regain ancestral lands that are either large in size, or symbolically important enough to be an affront to the Ruling Pākehā cultural psyche, or would prove strategically catastrophic to their cartelized big business interests.

Re: Christchurch Mosque Massacre, 51 dead 48 injured New Zealand

Post by TonyGosling »

[continues]
New Zealand’s big tech business interests are fused with the U.S. military-industrial-Smart-tech complex.
http://snoopman.net.nz/2019/05/21/the-t ... terrorism/


For instance, the big clients of Rocket Lab, whose space launch pad is located on the Mahia Peninsula, are the U.S. Department of Defence, NASA and the U.S. military industrial complex’s primary R&D organization, DARPA. Rocket Lab, who started with much fanfare that it was launching rockets to advance scientific knowledge, has subsequently been exposed for supporting the US/NATO military empire, since its satellites upgrade the Empire’s weapons tracking systems. Meanwhile, the New Zealand clients of Peter Thiel’s California-based big data company, Palantir, include the N.Z. Department of Defence, the GCSB, and the SIS. Palantir, which received $2 million in 2005 from the CIA’s venture company In-Q-Tel, developed a system called Analytical Framework for Intelligence to track immigrants for the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol Agency, which draws on the Bush-era Muslim registry known as the Entry-Exit Registration System. In 2013, Palantir filed a patent application for an Interactive Vehicle Information Map system that can trove disparate geospatial data sources to search for and track vehicles, view captured images, vehicle-owner data, event history, export the data and create search alerts – as I mentioned in Christchurch Decoded? It’s like Palantir is the spy’s brain. As the author of the Done: The Secret Deals That Are Changing Our World – Jacques Peretti said of Thiel’s company, “Palantir operates so far under the radar, it is special ops.” Peretti sketched Palantir’s worked with Los Angeles Police Departments’ predictive policing work, Operation Laser that enabled the LAPD to deter pre-crime suspects from committing crimes – like in the movie, Minority Report, starring Tom Cruise. It would seem that the N.Z. security state’s cautions to Parliament in February 2019 for greater resources to counter election-time cyber attacks may have been more about presaging Podesta’s rhetoric about the threat of an election hack from Russia and China, which may have been the ‘show-time’ start signal for an exhibition of spectacular power to execute a stealthy coup.
American Influence: NZ’s role in the Five Eyes intelligence network came under closer scrutiny as an unintended consequence of the 2012 MegaUpload Raids.

Curiously, among the many claims made by ‘Tarrant’ about his alleged worldview, he alleged he was an “ethno-nationalist eco-fascist” who admired the Chinese state’s political and social values. Was Tarrant’s white supremacist persona overlaid with a pseudo commando character to simultaneously signify the New Zealand state’s new enemy is working class white supremacists and its codified re-alignment with the American Deep State to create greater distance with China?

In the aftermath of the Christchurch atrocity, Ardern’s scheduled one-week visit to China was at first postponed and then cut short to a day – April Fool’s Day. Inside the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, New Zealand’s Prime Minister sat opposite President Xi Jinping around a table after performing a Power Walk Ritual with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang past a guard of troops. The President of China expressed condolences for the Christchurch mosques shooting, and the Prime Minister of New Zealand expressed sympathy for the loss of life in a factory explosion at the Jiangsu Tianjiayi Chemical plant that killed 78 workers.

The Prime Minister’s visit was timed to open New Zealand’s newly built $50 million embassy in Beijing. Ironically, this new embassy features a whare replete with tukutuku panels carved by a Māori carver, while New Zealand has a homeless population of 42,000, among whom include landless Māori. There, the New Zealand delegation offered to advise on the New Silk Road project, that envisages transcontinental railway and highway infrastructure passing through Asia, Europe, Africa and the Middle East. This New Silk Road would generate a land-based economic dynamism that would rival the maritime trade of the Ocean Powers and potentially up-end the US-NATO military empire’s containment strategy of China and Russia through military bases that encircle those great rivals powers. This dynamism between China and Russia is backed by the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, which is an economic, political and security bloc that was forged in 2001 by China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Ubekistan,Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan, and now includes India, and Pakistan. In 2010, in reaction to the economic, political and military rise of China, the Obama Administration announced a ‘Pivot to Asia’ strategy to commit military resources to the Pacific Ocean, and in particular to the South China Sea, to set-up choke points to cut off sea-lanes should tensions escalate to war. As Australian-born journalist John Pilger showed in his documentary, The Coming War with China, the United States has been encircling China with military bases since World War II, after ignoring communications from the leader of the Peoples’ Republic of China, Mao Zedong, for cooperation between the two nations. Historian Alfred McCloy stated in a recent interview with American journalist Chris Hedges, the United States pursued a strategy of encirclement of the entire Eurasian Continent following the Second World War to contain both Russia and China. There are historical parallels to the US-NATO military empire’s view that China’s plans to construct a New Silk Road is a threat. Indeed, the Obama Administration’s use of the term ‘Pivot to Asia’ was a potent term steeped in the language of the military build-up that led to two horrific global wars in the first half of the 20th Century.

The gambit of a British ‘Secret Elite’ to construct a universal empire was discussed on 15 February 1890 when Cecil John Rhodes presented his plan at Lord Nathaniel Rothschild’s country estate. There, Rhodes imparted to Rothschild and other very senior members of the British Establishment – including Arthur Balfour Balfour, Reginald Baliol Brett (later Lord Esher), Albert Grey (later Earl Grey), Alfred Lyttelton and Sir William Harcourt – the diabolical idea of setting up a Jesuit-like secret society to expand the British Empire into a world empire, as Gerry Docherty and Jim Macgregor reveal in their book, Hidden History: The Secret Origins of the First World War. The British Oligarchy saw the potential threat of an industrializing Russia allying with the most advanced industrial power on continental Europe, Germany, as tantamount to a death-knell to the primacy of the British Masonic Empire. The British ‘Secret Elite’ were intent on preventing Germany completing a railroad from Berlin to Baghdad, and thus, gaining a trans-continental link to a major source of oil that would rival the British and French-controlled Suez Canal route. In reality, Britain sought favourable concessions for oil through conquest, in order to revive the power and reach of the British Empire. Threats to the British Establishment’s desire of permanent supremacy were made emphatically clear in 1904, when a British geographer Halford Mackinder presented a paper titled ‘The Geographical Pivot of History’ to London’s Royal Geography Society. Now regarded as the ‘father of geopolitics’, the geographer viewed Russia as the‘pivot state’ on the ‘World Island’. Mackinder argued that whatever power came to control the resource-rich central Eurasian region of the Caspian Basin down to Mesopotamia (now war-torn Iran and Iraq) would come to control the ‘World Island’, and whoever controlled the ‘World Island’ would dominate the world. Mackinder pointed out that if Russia were to develop industrially to the extent that Germany had, Russia would be free to exploit its huge resources. Because Russia is so geographically vast and populous, the British Oligarchy worried that it could construct a dynamic internal economy – linked by rail – and would not need to trade with other powers, and could eventually build a navy, and then the British Empire would lose its naval supremacy.
The World Island: Halford’s Mackinder’s 1904 paper captured the British Establishment’s attention by illustrating that whomever came to control the central Pivot region from the Caspian Basin to Mesopotamia would come to control the ‘World Island’ and rule the world.

The British Secret Elite actually schemed a horrific two-global war strategy, figuring that it would take a fully-mechanized German war machine to smash Russia, as Guido Giacomo Preparata stated in, Conjuring Hitler: How Britain and America Made the Third Reich. To this end, the British oligarchy or ‘Secret Elite’ constructed what I call a ‘wedge of war’, a series of Deep State hidden agreements, covert black operations and a military buildup around the empire that would lead inevitably to war, as William Engdahl sketches in A Century of War: Anglo-American Oil Politics and the New World Order. To bind the empire tighter, the ‘Secret Elite’ formed Roundtable Groups throughout the empire, including New Zealand, from 1910 and had a very secret Roundtable Group in New York – as Quigley details in The Anglo-American Establishment, John Kendle explicates in The Roundtable Movement and Imperial Union, and Docherty and Macgregor outlines in Hidden History: The Secret Origins of the First World War.

Because New Zealand has never gained financial, economic and political independence, and is geographically isolated, with a small population and a modest industrial base, its Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) seeks to be an influence multiplier. This means MFAT attempts to foster its limited worldview of what it thinks are positive trade, political and cultural and security relations with other countries – without publicly acknowledging the deeper machinations that it must surely to some extent be privy to – along with the Security and Intelligence Service (SIS), the Government Communications Secuiry Bureau (GCSB) and the Police counter-terrorism Special Tactics Groups. These Deep State machinations between the United States and China vying for influence and control over New Zealand and Australia are reminiscent of the TV series Secret City, set in Australia’s capital city, Canberra. Journalist Harriet Dunkley discovers the dark underbelly of the Australian Deep State where Chinese and American-alligned political factions vie for dominance, while rendering the Prime Minister oblivious to a secret military program and results in the puzzling cover-up of a 13-minute long cyber-attack involving Air New Zealand Flight 101 set on a collision course with another plane.
Table Talk: Chinese President Xi Jinping and New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern exchanged condolences over the Christchurch Mosques Massacre and the China’s most recent factory explosion at the Jiangsu Tianjiayi Chemical plant, respectively.

Therefore, it is fascinating to note that in mid-May 2018, a former CIA analyst, Peter Mattis, was reported in the New Zealand media to have said in testimony to a U.S. Congressional committee that the Chinese Communist Party’s influence on the two major political parties in New Zealand – Labour and National – was concerning. Mattis evidently told the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission that Australia had had a similar problem of penetration of its “political core”, and Australia’s political elite had taken the problem seriously, while New Zealand’s political elite had not. In effect, Mattis issued a warning when he said that the Five Eyes intelligence partners should discuss New Zealand’s continued status in the Five Eyes intelligence alliance, and presented the threat that the intelligence network might devolve into a Four Eyes alliance. Then New Zealand’s media followed up with a report titled “China and the Age of Strategic Rivalry”, which was published on May 2 2018 and was based on a workshop with academics hosted by the Canadian Security Intelligence Service. This “China and the Age of Strategic Rivalry” report stated that “New Zealand provides a vivid case study of China’s willingness to use economic ties to interfere with the political life of a partner country. New Zealand is valuable to China, as well as to other states such as Russia, as a soft underbelly through which to access Five Eyes intelligence.” The report claimed it would be a “major coup” if China were to separate New Zealand from its long-standing defence and security partners, and gain greater political influence in the Pacific Region, access to Antarctica and penetration to exploit the country’s farmed lands. In a public talk in New Zealand on May 7 2018, Hillary Clinton also warned that China was waging a foreign power grab that was “a new global battle”. In response to this event cluster of China’s influence, Ardern was reported by Radio NZ on May 30 2018 to have said, “I take my steer on these matters from official channels, not opinions expressed at a workshop”.
Gaming New Zealand? Was N.Z.’s PM being played for a fool when Hillary Clinton visited New Zealand in May 2018?

These concerns about China’s influence over N.Z. politics followed a study titled “Magic Weapons: China’s political influence activities under Xi Jinping” by Professor Anne-Marie Brady from the University of Canterbury who found extensive political penetration by China into New Zealand. Fascinatingly, on February 13th 2019, or one month prior to the Christchurch mosques shooting, the N.Z. Police announced it could not detect links between burglaries of Brady’s home and office, tampering with her car and a death threat letter – to any possible culprits. The Professor – whom travelled to Ottawa, Washington, London and Canberra to report her findings – had described New Zealand as a “soft underbelly of the Five Eyes Alliance”, and said the small South Pacific nation was “very vulnerable to the shifts to global balance in economic and political power. Professor Brady’s work was detectable in the “China and the Age of Strategic Rivalry” report published by the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, despite the Crown copyrighted material stating the workshop was conducted under Chatham House rules, meaning statements were not attributed to any particular person.

Given the forgoing, was the Christchurch Mosques Massacre an American Deep State-sponsored terrorism event designed to produce a reset in New Zealand’s political trajectory by binding N.Z.’s national security state closer to the U.S. and nudging it a comfortable distance away from China, while helping New Zealand’s Deep State forge a new state enemy – working class white supremacists – after losing its perennial enemy of the state since 1840?

After all, in the post-World War II order, journalists such as John Pilger and Naomi Klein, and documentary filmmaker Eugene Jarecki along with US foreign policy critic Noam Chomsky have shown that the US-NATO Alliance has routinely conducted acts of terror. These Black Operations have occurred in over 50 countries and were often conducted to topple democratic socialist governments or communist states in Europe, Central and South America, South East Asia, the Middle East and Africa. After World War II, the Atlantic Alliance covertly formed a secret ‘stay behind’ army by recruiting fascists, including former Nazis, to conduct terrorism operations codenamed ‘Gladio’ (Latin for Roman sword). Operation Gladio was a low-grade war that exploited a “Strategy of Tension” designed to frighten the mass populaces of Western Europe and thereby shift the political gravity to the ‘right’ and away from socialism by blaming left-wing communist groups and associating freedom and democracy with capitalism. These clandestine ‘false flag’ operations were carried out by all NATO countries through their intelligence services, military forces, and paramilitary squads, with dominant participation from the Anglo-American membership of NATO, between the early 1960s and 1990 as Madhi Darius Nazemroaya reports in his book The Globalization of NATO.

Conspicuously, the Ardern Labour Coalition Government’s capitulations have occurred despite the main opposition political party not appearing to have a chance of re-election because they have been in disarray since their leader, Bill English, punched a whole in a wall on news that his National Party had lost the coalition negotiations in October 2017. Therefore, the Great Policy Collapse of the Ardern Labour Government is a remarkable achievement for a fascist ‘lone gunman’ who appeared to do the ‘okay’ handle signal while handcuffed in the dock, like ‘boaties’ do when passing one another on the water in the ‘City of Sails’.
White Supremacist Hand Signal? During his first court appearance in the ‘dock’, ‘Brenton Tarrant’ made a hand gesture that could have been the ‘okay’ sign that boaties do.

In The Dominion Post’s first edition following the Christchurch shooting, it reported N.Z. PM Jacinda Ardern statements of condemnation of the attacks, appealed to the public to desist from sharing the video and urged everyone to avoid “giving any oxygen” to the message behind the violence. But curiously, The Dominion Post noted that the Prime Minister appeared to frame her remarks “in the intelligence of the attackers’ motives” when the Ardern said:
“We, New Zealand, were not a target because we are a safe harbour for those who hate. We were not chosen for this act of violence because we condone racism, because we are an enclave for extremism. We were chosen for the very fact that we are none those things.”

Did N.Z.’s Prime Minister Ardern sense a bigger game in play, involving a multilayered stratagem that cast the country, and Christchurch in particular, as an ‘policy amplifier’ location to coerce other governments to pass internet censorship legislation? Did she sense that N.Z was chosen as a ‘soft target’ to test new geo-political stratagems, from which to glean crisis ‘lessons’? After all, in the scale of terrorist mass shootings, the Christchurch Mosques massacre is up there some of the deadliest, exceeding the death toll of 48 Japanese prisoners of war shot during a riot at an internment camp in Featherston in 1943.[34]



To sum up, if the Christchurch Mosques Massacre were simply the result of a horrendous scheme of terrorist-accused ‘Brenton Tarrant’ – New Zealand’s dominant corporate coalitions have certainly exploited the vulnerability of the Ardern Government over the nine squandered minutes.

A Black Mirror Reset? While N.Z.’s PM showed compassion amid the shock of a massacre that rivaled America’s worst mass shootings – her policy platforms collapsed.

The Government’s official censorship regime meant a shut-down in scrutiny of the ‘manifesto’, the livestream video and its alterations and other footage that were alleged to have captured evidence of multiple shooters. The capitulation of New Zealand’s news media in the immediate aftermath of the Christchurch mosques shootings to this official censorship, the official solidifying narrative and deflection of media resources away from on-the-ground investigating, meant the country was subjected to two weeks of vigils that culminated in National Remembrance Services throughout N.Z. The Mass Mourning Rituals – that worked on one level as a platform for discourse to rise above hate, violence and division – were primarily a staged psy-op to emotionally hijack the nation so that a reset could be rammed through by the national security state, the political élite and corporate New Zealand capitalizing on the emotional credit – regardless of whether or not the mosques attacks were the horrific plot of a ‘lone wolf terrorist’ or not. With messaging such as ‘Our Muslim whanau’, ‘They are us’ and ‘Love will win’, the psy-op displaced the far more critical discourse on who else might have had the means, the motive and meanness to inflict carnage while casting a patsy for the starring role.
Weaponized time and space? International state actors could not have helped notice that N.Z.’s ‘thin red line’ of counter-terrorism was compromised by multiple training exercises.

The world’s media praised Ardern’s response with headlines such as, “New Zealand’s Prime Minister Receives Worldwide Praise for Her Response to the Mosque Shootings’ in The Washington Post, “America Deserves a Leader as Good as Jacinda Ardern” in The New York Times and “The Left should Look Again at New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern” in The News Statesman. It is intriguing, therefore, to find in the metadata prior to the shooting, that during the whistle-stop N.Z. visit of former Clinton White House deputy chief of staff John Podesta, he “hailed” N.Z.’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern as a “superstar”.

This superstar claim worked to presage Ardern’s sky-rocket ascent to fame on the world’s syndicated news psy-op political stage.[35] Indeed, Podesta’s appearance on Newshub’s six o’clock bulletin on the Monday prior to the shooting may have been a codified communication calling showtime to ‘go live’ with the possible false flag black op – as I outline in my article, “Christchurch Decoded? A ‘Lone Gunman’ – or a Stealthy Coup D’état in Slow Motion?”
A Trojan Horse Mechanism? Was the terrorist shooter’s email and manifesto a sophisticated Trojan Horse mechanism to capture the New Zealand Government?

Because inflicting overt attacks on Māori aspirations for sovereignty have proved tricky since the Operation Eight Urewera Raids of October 2007, it may turn out to be a major reason for staging a false flag attack – if that is what occurred on March 15 2019 in Christchurch. It is certainly true that a deep state network inflicted those paramilitary raids of 2007 to save the Neo-Colonial State from a looming crisis over indigenous Māori sovereignty and the return of large tracts of native lands lost by swindle, struggle and stealth. Prior to the Urewera Raids and since, N.Z.’s Deep State has been subjecting the country to multi-season news psy-ops that targeted Ahmed Zaoui, Tame Iti and Kim Dotcom to resolve crises of the N.Z. Neo-Colonial State’s own making.

It may also turn out that a thin red line drawn from N.Z.’s earnest, decent and ballsy law enforcement personnel might discover that N.Z.’s Deep State conspired with their international counterparts to reset New Zealand.

Absent the Great Policy Collapse – the Ardern Labour Coalition Government would have crashed the fragile, debt-laden New Zealand economy with its planned capital gains tax regime. John Armstrong’s opinion piece of 09.02.2019 that the Ardern Labour-Coalition Government was playing Russian roulette by heading into a political Valley of Death with all chambers of a gun loaded, was intended to presage a coordinated counter-campaign to subsume the left-wing faction of the Labour Party’s political élite that had become dominant since the 2017 election. It is my contention that a coordinated counter-campaign of public relations would not have been enough in itself to shift the course that the Ardern Labour-Coalition Government was on – even with Winston Peter’s his New Zealand First Party supposedly threatening a veto vote.

The Ardern Labour-Coalition Government was, in essence, doing everything with its policy platforms to threaten the N.Z. oligarchy’s economic base, as well as its place in the US-NATO military empire-aligned national security state and the legitimacy of N.Z.’s own national security state – whom had lost the capacity to overtly attack the enemy it had targeted since its formation in 1840: Māori.
A Black Mirror Reset? Was the Christchurch Mosques Massacre an American Deep State-sponsored terrorism event designed to nudge New Zealand a comfortable distance away from China, while helping N.Z.’s Deep State forge a new state enemy – working class white supremacists – after losing Māori as its perennial enemy of the state since 1840?

Therefore, those deep state forces had every reason to avert the looming economic, political and security crises posed by Ardern’s Government. To be super-clear, I am not justifying a possible pre-planned deep state reset as a result of a repugnant mass shooting, or a reset that simply exploited the vulnerability of the Ardern Government due to the squandered nine minutes between the gunman sending his email and commencing his carnage. I am simply analyzing the situation as I see it – in the absence of skeptical reportage of the official story – which is supposed to be the guiding rule of journalism.

In keeping with oligarchic wealth defence and offence, it would appear domestic and international deep state forces constructed a new enemy image to scapegoat, in order to resolve those looming crises. If N.Z.’s white supremacist Rich-Listers, the national security state, and a selected network of their foreign counterparts were not involved in a plot to massacre Muslims in Christchurch – they have certainly benefited from the Labour-led Coalition Government’s Great Policy Collapse. The exploitable security protocol – to simply forward any threatening emails arriving in the inboxes at the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet onto the Parliamentary Services Security Team – is deeply suspicious. Telephones are inventions of immediacy appropriate for emergencies. Emails are not immediate enough and the Police needed to be in the loop straight away – most especially since time had been weaponized. To any international Police counter-terrorism squads, anti-terrorist Army units and political élite examining the details of the Christchurch Mosques Massacre, they could not have helped but notice that all of the terrorist shooter’s 71 email recipients would rue the nine squandered minutes of the ‘Gift Horse head-start’ to stop his mayhem. If the exploitable email security protocol were not a Trojan Horse mechanism to gain the capitulation of the Government, the political opposition and the news media – it may as well have been. Therefore, the Ardern Government’s policy capitulations are another key ‘tell’ of a false flag coup d’état – albeit a possibly highly stealthy one occurring in slow motion.

'I Was Literally Scared.' A Man Says He Warned Police About Extremism at Massacre Suspect's Rifle Club
By Elizabeth Thomson / Christchurch, New Zealand
March 19, 2019 3:45 AM EDT

Pete Breidahl knew something was wrong straight away. Confederate flags lined the walls, he says, and members strolled around in camouflage gear and rank insignia.

That day in November 2017 was the one and only time Breidahl, 40, visited the Bruce Rifle Club outside New Zealand’s university town of Dunedin. “Once was enough for me,” he tells TIME.

What he saw was shocking enough to prompt the former New Zealand Army soldier to tell local police they should investigate the extreme views of members. But he says his concerns fell on deaf ears.

On Saturday, one member of Bruce Rifle Club, Brenton Harrison Tarrant, 28, was charged with murder following the massacre of 50 Muslims at two mosques in Christchurch. While New Zealand has a proud reputation for religious tolerance, Friday’s mass shooting has spotlighted the country’s extremist underbelly.

“This attack has been brewing for some time,” says Clarke Jones, a terrorism expert at Australian National University. He says New Zealand could have around 70 active right wing groups.

Breidahl, a father-of-three, says he only visited the club for a serviceman’s rifle match it was hosting. Its members brazenly talked about preparing for combat, he recalled, describing the men at the club as “basement dwelling nerds that live out homicidal fantasies.”

One man in particular told Breidahl he wanted to be able to carry his gun around the university where he was studying. “He told me, ‘people carry skateboards around, what’s the difference?’”

Breidahl says the same man told him that he needed to prepare for the oncoming migration of Muslim people. “[He] told me that the army will be deployed on the streets of Dunedin to protect us from the growing terrorist attacks of Muslims,” he says.

Breidahl says another man spoke fondly about Martin Bryant, who murdered 35 people in the Port Arthur massacre in 1996 — Australia’s worst ever mass shooting.

“I was a 17-year-old kid living in Victoria, Australia, [when that happened.],” says Breidahl. “As long as I live I will never forget about a man on the news talking about the loss of his wife and child. I was in tears. The man who spoke to me talked about [Bryant] like he was a hero. He was so casual about it.”

Breidahl says the lack of empathy amongst members “scared the living daylights out of him.”

He says he still has nightmares about all the horrific things he saw during his days in the military. “Being at that shooting range… only for a day… brought back all those terrible memories.”

Breidahl says he left the club early that day, and barely finished his event because he knew he had to do something about what he had seen and heard. On November 20, 2017, he made a post in a rifle clubs Facebook group, a screenshot of which was shown to TIME, detailing strange encounters with some of the men at the event.

“I was literally scared,” the post concludes.

People were quick to respond, he says, likening the Bruce members to “Aramoana-type” fruit loops. (Aramoana was the last mass shooting in New Zealand in 1990, which claimed 14 lives.)

Breidahl says he took his concerns to the local arms officer at the Dunedin Police Station.

“She dismissed me straight away,” he says. “She told me they were ‘a bunch of funny folk’ down at the club and ‘it’s just who they were.’”
