Hi Ben, thanks heaps for writing. I’m glad we’re together on this and I will think about and digest the detail you’ve provided (the Alp link much have been someone at the spinoff).
good for you, Mon, 15 Nov, 15:04
In reply to 13 Nov 2021, 22:53 (Update 12/12/2021 5;13pm).
Hi Nicky (Hager), a public letter just read your piece on Covid protest. In parts I agree 100% with you on this. There is a component with Freedom movement that is toxic.
Yet I do find it amusing the link to Kelvyn Alp & Trump media backers is just being acknowledged when I reported on this douche back in March 15 2019. This is when Alp for the third time in my life tried to attached himself to me at the same time my former colleague Vinny Eastwood veered right and took NZPP American Michael Stace (ex Association of Former Intelligence Office [AFIO] spook, slash Disney public relations advertising dollars, slash like Alp of the funny hand shake brigade (in itself a smokescreen designed to polarise and confuse]), advertising dollars.
My oh my it really is a small world after all.
Nicky if you take nothing from this letter but one thing then let it be this. There is plenty of money out there, to be had for any ‘journalist’, if you just pick a side (and I have being offered it from both sides) but none if you choose to simply do your job and report with out taking a partisan view and let the facts fall where they may. Please read Counter Punch article Conspiracy Panic I think this writer nails it the best.
Then dwell on just how many ex American spooks including Stace have popped up in NZ right wing politics of late.
And I feel Alp, as I have previously said to you, is being part of an effort to have me (and other former counter culture writers – once deemed fringe lefties) branded white right wing supremacist and it’s not the first time he has done this.
Back in 2011 he popped 10 grand in my account which he said was a “gift”. I was going to run with Ournz which fell over (an NZPP test run??) and I am glad it did. Alp claim to have turned his back on right wing politics were clearly not true as he began to slag of Jews’ publicly which is when I said thank you for the 10G I’m outta here.
Alp claims this cash, which he is very generous with, comes from his mine Phoenix Gold (now Google Phoenix Foundation and the AFIO Santos uprising). Just after March 19, after I told Alp again thanks but no thanks, a nice old lady popped up and she was going to arrange for me to go on TV channels in the USA . This would have been a big deal for me. Except I noticed she was from Waihi where Alp and Outdoors have plenty of friends and so does the Todd Corp whose own list of former executives include Chris Hipkins. Hipkins was Jacinda Adern’s defacto minder when she was in London selling Tony Blair neoliberalism under Sir William Sargent [Frameworks – Disney CGI outfit of choice) .
So I looked at her Facebook profile a lot closer. She was a British Right Wing Resistance far right member. These can be linked to the shooter, Kyle Chapman, the Pentagon funded Agov battalions, plus the Nelson Club to which Nick Smith and several former British SAS members plus those with water and mining interest belong to.
So I declined the offer and with it no doubt the considerable donations that went with it. And I did this Nicky knowing my I would have to be fighting for own meagre income which since then has seen my business of 20 years wiped out.
Today’s Alp’s Counter Spin even uses the font and design of my paper DEADLINE I have run for 25 years
Sue Grey & Alan Simons did the same. My original website was Ben’s World but I had to change it. Because Sue, days after being on my show, decided to call her website Sue World (my first clue which made me begin to investigate her). Anyone who opposes the government now gets branded right wing. Partly due to the influence of of folk like Alp & Grey but Nicky you kind of also just joined the central government polarisation propaganda unit when you wrote that piece in a media outlet that received covid funding (Weird I got no such funding but to be fair made no application and once again turned down the offer of cash on offer is I would just pick a side).
I know you upset a a lot of your fans who were offended by your assumptions on why they are protesting.
I also pointed out the Trump/Murdoch angle visa VIP boats who came here during lockdown.
Ironically the Spin Off, who you wrote your piece for, attached me to these conspiracy theorists (I am a conspiracy theorist just not a right wing one) who went on about just one of these boats [Epstein Murdoch’s Dancing Hare] and the fictional link to paedophiles and Satan that this rent-a-mob went on about. This was not my angle and more polarisation by the media with its own political affiliations also helped drown out the real story behind these lock down visitors.
My own angel was the link these boats had to right wing media and US based left wing tech lords with NZ govt contracts.
The right wing QANON nut jobs however caused such a stink of absurdity this core point got missed by everyone – including the reactionary left with its own triggers. And who thus are easily manipulated and duped as the right. Two puppets swing on the same strings.
I am still a greenie and not fond of 1080 (does that make me left or right). I have had multiple vaccines and give mean alternative to Pfizer and I will take it. Yet I am even less fond of 1080 its replacement, Brodifacoum made by Bayer (Monsanto) .
Nor do I believe from my many chats with Rod Donald, the legendary Green’s leader with his possum fur seat and rainbow suspenders (as we often caught the same plane), he would of approve of the Green’s current direction on 1080 or GMOs.
I strongly suggest you investigate the new laws on GMO labelling and how what comes in now will be decided overseas. I suggest your review what role Clark, who you wrote about in relation to her role in the GMO cover up Seeds of Distrust in 2008, as head of the UNDP has had in shaping the the turn around that the UN has had on GMO technology and the need for due diligence visa not just rushing into new technology and responding tothe here and now.
I also don’t trust DOC and again ask you to strongly look into their mining and offshore connections with those interested in exploiting our water and mining resources which also emerge in these fringe right wing parties.
The planet is dying and one way or the other we humans are killing her.
Yet where in all those IPCC documents and lear jet junkets is there a single mention of the military industrial complex? Why do the Green’s say so little about the militarization of NZ space. Sure they mention Mahi Rocket Lab. But what about the 27 other sites in NZ that the Pentagon’s Space Force can be linked too ??
I’m gutted, the well funded right do go on about commie Agenda 2030 — which is absurd.
Yet equally no one in the Greens talks about Agenda 2030 long list of vile corporate sponsors including Bayer (Monsanto) whom James Shaw worked for as spin doctor.
How is it we critique those who oppose what happening as anti vax Nazi (Im neither and feel) and yet no one ask question on how the Greens are now led by Bayer a firm who profited from the Holocaust and never apologised.
Have you seen what Dupont NZ guy has to say about Roundup and the TPPA it kind of proved Rod warning correct on why Toxins as solution opens the door to mission creep and subtlety programming. I have tried to dig it up with no luck. Yet here another aspect of how I see things (read below)
UPDATED – FOUND IT The images below underscore how Dupon has a bob each way (as so many do) as the back the ‘left wing’ climate change UN SDG’s while also backing the ‘right wing’ TPPA with is powerful ISSD clauses that give rights to corporations and put profits before the people and the planet.
I think these people are funding both sides left and right using the ‘strategy of tension’ the idea of polarising working class and middle class that was first used by industrialist in Italy during the 1970’s I become so frustrated. This is not about vax anti vax it is way BIGGER than that but the reactionary left right keep it on this one small issue.
I for one won’t be surprised to see a right wing ground swell as there was a few years back with the TPPA. And like the TPPA the ground swell will get betrayed. ..First we took a step to the left and then a JUMP! to the right.
PS Weird the shooting took place on the same day as the cop 21 marches in NZ I was in Coromandel at the time investigating the mining industry political ties to left and right wing groups ironically.
MONSANTO THE OCTOPUS WHO FUNDS LEFT & RIGHT WING REACTIONARY GROUPS
HEY MONSANTO LEAVE THOSE KIDS ALONE: Turns out those student climate change strikes were not as spontaneous as our media is reporting (surprise surprise).”Monsanto (manufacturer of cancer inducing roundup) develops agricultural products to assist farmers in cultivating the land, but we know that in order to build a better future, the world will also benefit from cultivating responsible and motivated youth. Monsanto Cultivating Youth for a Better Future monsanto.com” Student rising up for climate change by going on strike, whoo-who awesome let’s get behind that said many who sanely think we need to fight this good fight. And soon word spread on the school yard. It’s cool to be Green and if you don’t think that you can’t hang with the cool kids.Um did any of us adults ever bother to find out where this ‘spontaneous’ movement actually sprang from? What would you think as a parent if I told you it was being fanned by some of the filthiest planetary vandals on the planet?
Will that is exactly what is happening.
In 2015, an “independent” group of students invited students from around the world to skip school on the first day of COP 21, the UNFCCC Climate Conference.
This was called ‘Climate Strike One’ and was organised by the United Nation Global Youth Network whose sponsors for this very ‘green’ teen slumber party included water privatisation monsters Nestle their defacto subsidiaries Coca cola and Pepsi, Starbucks, Du Pont Chemicals, Anglo-American tobacco, BHP Billiton, Shell Oil, Rio Tinto Monsanto and it parent Bayer just to name a few of its partners from a long list of corporate scum-baggery.
It also included Autodesk, a Canadian smart technology giant recently purchased by TPPA member Singapore state owned Surbana Jurong, China’s economic expansion partner in The Beltway Roads who last month (as NZ wakes up to reality of water privatisation that the NZ ratification of the TPPA has brought upon us), brought Snowy Mountain Hydro Engineering ltd. The latter is the brain of Australia’s Snowy Hydro Scheme which in turn is the absolute soul of Australia’s water strategy for the next century.
This is all being marketed under the auspice of the United Nation’s corporate dominated climate strategy known as Agenda 2030.Finance for the Surbana Jurong spending spree came from the China’s International Construction Bank whose directors in New Zealand included Jenny Shipley famed of the Mainzeal rort, Oriva (Food & Water) and is Vice President of the Club of Madrid who also promote the 17 goals of Agenda 2030 and the goals of its “partners”, Nestles, Coca Cola, Monsanto its parent firm Bayer.
Then there were the COP21 speakers; Tim Grosser, an economic hitman, who as senior Foreign Affairs bureaucrat helped to pass the TPPA under both Clark and Key Labour and National.
It was Metiria Turia, of the Greens who first called the TPPA a
that delivered absolute power (Dunedin 22/5/2015).
A statement made shortly before she fell/was pushed on her sword during last election and was replaced by James Shaw co leader of the Greens. Shaw incidentally is a former consultant to Bayer (Monsanto parent firm), the Hong Kong Shang Hai Bank of China and Price Water House Cooper (PWHC).PWHC (whom Shaw also worked for) told the New Zealand government that if it signed the Kyoto Protocols in 2002 it would make $3 billion a year. Only to tell us after we ratified the treaty that no New Zealand would lose $3billion. PWHC had made a $6 billion, per annum, gaff it simply called an “accounting error”.
Other speakers at COP21 Sean Kidney Climate bonds, Wayne Sharpe Carbon Trade Exchange and Carl Pendragon of Carbon Wealth.
Yes the Agenda 2030 corporate controlled version of global environmental being sold our kids is not so much a benevolent Spock and Kirk spouting one planetary live long and groovy baby but rather a case of corporate Klingons chanting “nachDaq yInISQo’ qoH chev pong Qot” (only a fool lets his head be separated by lies) who are pushing a predatory form of fake environmentalism, via sophisticated marketing aimed at the youth market, that ultimately will deliver the very opposite results of it carefully crafted propaganda.
Hopefully our kids are smarter than the many adults who formed opinions without doing their homework first. One more reason to stay in school.
