This August Palantir described by Inputmag.com as “the Bond villain big data surveillance company with a Bond villain name that routinely and openly aids in killing people like most Bond villains do, announced it will soon accept Bitcoin payments for its Bond villain services”.
Palantir’s COO, Shyam Sankar, explained the company cryptocurrency strategy coordinates with nearly $51 million in gold purchased alongside “other investments” in preparation for “a future with more black swan events,” a term that can be translated into layman’s terms as a code brown – as in I have a code brown in my pants. The information can be found buried within the company’s recent Q2 SEC filings, which confirms that just earlier this month, “the Company purchased $50.7 million in 100-ounce gold bars. Bloomberg notes “
It’s also worth mentioning that Palantir was started by Peter Thiel, the multibillionaire co-founder of PayPal who now owns an estate in New Zealand explicitly to ride out a potential societal collapse. In May 2021 Newstalk ZB reported “Record volumes of gold have been moved to New Zealand in the past year. International investors have been flying in their nuggets of gold and storing them in vaults here. Customs figures reveal $242 million in gold was imported to New Zealand in the past 12 months”. Thiel’s name has come up several time in reference to gold bullion importation. Yet whether this is may simply be because the man, who is synonymous with spyware and the Queenstown Five Eye meetings at Millbrook, has become associated with tales of bunkers being buried under the growing gated community of overseas visitors who have emerged down under.
Larry Page of Google who is working with the NZ government to create an automated electric flying taxi service called Whisk has been living in Fiji with his wife and two sons during the pandemic. Page, the eighth wealthiest person in the world, has a $116 billion fortune. This month the government of New Zealand confirmed he also had NZ residency. He follows fellow tech billionaires Peter Thiel and LinkedIn’s Reid Hoffman in taking up New Zealand residency. Hoffman said that moving to New Zealand was so popular among tech executives as ‘doomsday insurance “it had become a cliché“. Page’s presence in New Zealand was noted when it emerged he flew to Auckland with his son, 12, for emergency medical care.
During 2020 Lockdown I spotted a billionaire cluster of boats at Auckland Viaduct they included;
A. Jeff Bezo flew Wellington to Queenstown – his boat was moored at the Viaduct. Bezos is (or was) involved with Lord of the Ring’s TV series but is also believed to be in talks with the government for unknown purposes.
B. Larry Page (cited above) flew to New Zealand paid one million to become a resident. As noted Page is also involved in the electric power test of Kitty Hawk in New Zealand and other projects. His boat Sense was tide up next to Bezo’s Rocinante. I reported his presence in New Zealand a year a head of national media.
C. Wayne Laufer, mining magnate, far right fund raiser, tied to Koch and Trump. Laufer’s boat Gayle Force, equipped for ocean survey work, tied up next to Rocinante & Sense.
D. Three boats, tied up to the one above, all belonging to Rupert Mudroch & sons. This included the Dancing Hare. The Hare did get some media attention but this was focused on the boats past owner Epstein. Three days before Epstein girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested the Murdoch’s Sun ran a $10,000 reward article for news on where Maxwell might be as the boat the Murdoch’s brought began to get public but not media attention.
The limited media reporting was focused on the public hysterics visa Dancing Hare not on what where all these other boats & tech lords were doing here.
E. There was also a jet tied to Saudi tech investor billionaire Nasser al-Rashid (Saudi Arabia’s 5th richest) and Chinese investors which flew into Dunedin during this period with aircraft identified as affiliated with Dubai firms backed by investors looking to make a “fortune out of disrupted markets”.
F. Also tied up at the Viaduct next to the billionaires boats Michael Hill’s The Beast.
Since then Michael Hill, who owns the golf course next to Millbrook, shares have increased 165% in the past 12 months with Hill open up smart stores using Qualtrics’ a ground breaking retail platform.
All the above represent investors who have or are about to have existing tech project take place in NZ or are involved with high priced commodity minerals.
G. Also spotted in the air (using Flight Tracker software) a nationwide launch of AI geospatial mapping — a form of advanced tech (think Minority Report) that the later Julian Carver (Christchurch earthquake relief tech expert), who died in controversial circumstances, described by saying “if a picture can tell 1000 words a geospatial map can tell you a million”. Done transparently Carver, who died in controversial circumstances, called this a planet saving super technology. Done in secrecy it the tools of tyranny. It’s 2020 lockdown deployment here and globally was done as quietly as possible.
Much like the billionaires stashing their gold down under.
Yeah, the Armagedd-o-meter seems to climbing to red yet again. Despite all the previous impending doomsdays that came to naught, one of these days it’s going to happen.
Ben never ceases to amaze me with what he digs up.
Past two articles absolutely over the target, Ben.
Bloody hell. Is this the chap the boys at Waihopai call “Radar”?
Same old Ben!
