Mr ‘Nice Guy’ Congratulates Losers

New Zealand’s prime minister John Key shocked the economy’s police, armed forces and intelligence services on the election night of September 20 following his party’s third-term win. The shock was not because Key and the National Party made it through a Dirty Politics scandal that erupted five weeks earlier, largely unscathed.[1]

Rather, it has emerged that the rich-lister prime minister mumbled in his smug excitement among a crowd of party faithful, “We need to find the Missing Million-”.[2] A nerdy aide took the remark as a directive. What ensued will go down in New Zealand folklore as one of biggest near misses in the Annals of Political Miscalculations History and will ultimately bring down Key’s government.

John Key’s mumbled Mission Million comment actually referred to a letter he drafted the previous night to the ‘Missing Million’ people who the prime minister expected would not cast a vote, to sarcastically thank them for helping him re-win power. (The actual number was slightly less than a million).[3] But when Key said to his geeky aide, “We need to find the Missing Million-” he did not finish his sentence because of the excited commotion. Key meant to say, “We need to find the Missing Million letter.”

Key, who was with one of his senior advisors and top P.R. man Jason Ede the night before when he wrote the letter, neglected to confide with his aide that he had written it. Evidently, this was because he had been half-cut (or half-drunk), and the prime minister allegedly has a poor memory problem. The well-meaning aide promptly alerted the police commissioner, the head of defence and assorted spooks. Bless.

Despite the police, armed forces and intelligence services initially mobilizing to launch the largest search and rescue operation in the New Zealand economy’s history to find the ‘Missing Million’ people, John Key quietly located the letter that he intended to be mailed to each of the expected one million non-voters.

But, Key’s foray into congratulatory spam-letters for voting truants was officially censored by the Governor-General Sir Gerry Mataparae, who found out about the impending search and rescue operation when an unnamed advisor messaged him via his Facebook tip-line. This person emphasized that Key’s Mission Million letter would trigger a ‘constitutional crisis’.[4]

The Governor-General has the power to dissolve parliament if it loses the confidence of the House, or the population, to govern. Such a situation is known as a ‘constitutional crisis’, or time for the Queen of New Zealand to draw the ‘Veto Power’ card from her bra.

The suppressed letter, which was written in a slyly smug tone, spells out to the nearly one million eligible voters who did not cast a vote at the September 20 election, that key insiders of the National Party had pursued a two-track communications strategy. The two-track communications approach cast John Key as ‘Mr Nice Guy’, while dirty political attacks were outsourced to popular right-wing blog-sites, such as Whale Oil and Kiwiblog.[5]

Evidently, Key’s election night smugness set in, despite claiming on TV3’s Campbell Live following his party’s win, that he and National were keen not to be seen as arrogant, a common criticism of his government over the previous six years. “I was cast as ‘Mr Nice Guy’ so that the sucker-lucker public wouldn’t think for a moment that the minor scandals, embarrassing smears, and gaffs that were blown out of proportion by a compliant propagandist news media system had anything to do with me”, Key divulged to his intended audience of one million “losers”.[6]

The censored letter was obtained under the Official Information Act, and processed with unexpected speed, the kind thought only possible if you were right-wing attack blogger, Cameron Slater, who had been able to scoop mainstream news outlets due to his connections with corrupt key insiders of the NZ government. Incredibly, Key had drafted the letter at the suggestion of one of his senior advisors and top P.R. man Jason Ede, on the Friday before the election.

However, when Gerry Mateparae was informed about the congratulatory letter on Sunday September 21, the Governor-General immediately intervened. In the feud that followed, John Key said ‘Fuck’, and variants thereof a lot, according to a source familiar with the argument. Key blamed Jason Ede for the forthright letter and he was scape-goated to ‘resolve’ the crisis, the source said. This was the real reason that Ede resigned.

When I found Key flanked by his minders, he claimed it was the Office of the Prime Minster that signed the letter, not himself personally. Furthermore, Key, who earned the nickname the Smiling Assassin during his former life as a Dark Wizard banker said Jason Ede drafted the brazen letter.[7] “Look at the end of the day, New Zealanders are interested in what’s best for the economy, not what happens behind closed doors in government”, Key said with a Squinchy Nose Face, a character ‘tell’ when he is downplaying a matter to hide another lie.

Squinchy Key Nose: When NZ’s PM John Key is lying, one of his ‘tells’ is his Squinchy Nose Face.

Professor Norman Dodd of Auckland University’s School of Government Psychological Operations stated the phrase “at the end of day” has been spread as a meme throughout the New Zealand economy to bypass the Fightless Kiwi population’s already compromised critical thinking processes. “New Zealanders who identify as Kiwis use the phrase “at the end of day” before they deliver their viewpoint as a way to assert authority over their audience. Most Kiwis say it in the way they use other clichéd phrases, where critical thinking is absent. But skilled manipulators such as John Key use it to trick people to agree with them.”

Jason Ede could not be found for comment, but left a note on the front-door of his house.[10] In the note, Ede threatened New Zealand’s news media claiming he had their metadata and that he would develop an App that combined Google Maps with lie detector technology. Ede said he would use the invention to show that they were “not as neutral in National’s third term win” as they were all pretending.

National Party president Peter Goodfellow, whose family is estimated to be worth $500 million, said he was relieved that no “vulnerable persons” in his party were exposed during the election campaign, especially when phrases such as “name suppression” and “prominent New Zealander” became news in mid-July.[11]

Safe Pair of Hands: National Party president Peter Goodfellow helped keep up the illusion that dynastic families such as his don’t covertly influence New Zealand law.

“I was so relieved that my safe pair of hands helped get us through the election unscathed”, said Goodfellow, “especially since my good friend John Key had scornfully jeered at Labour’s leader, David Cunliffe, for saying ‘sorry for being a man’ at the Women’s Refuge Symposium.[12] Cunliffe is such a sissy.”[13]

I nodded slowly. It was like Goodfellow was used to women rooting for him.[14] “Like Key said”, Goodfellow continued, “there’s ‘actually a small group of men’ that are ‘violent’ and ‘abusive’ and ‘they need to be held to account’, but you know jailing that ‘small group of men’ is tricky when they are rich, powerful and vulnerable”.[15]

“Silly” Cunliffe: John Key said he’d love see to his Labour Party counterpart say, “sorry for being a man” at rugby clubs.

At the End of the First 100 days

Key’s ‘Missing Million’ letter goes to heart of how the rich and powerful can prey upon people’s vulnerabilities, win their trust and then victimize them with multiple forms of structural violence.[16]

“My top PR-man and senior advisor, Jason Ede, led these dirty political attacks”, wrote Key, “while he was on the National Party payroll, which meant he could perform his covert activities outside pesky official information request processes. In other words, unless you had a fly on the wall inside his office, two doors down from mine, you couldn’t tell – as a naive New Zealander – what he was doing.”

New Zealand’s prime minister went onto explain in the letter, that he now admitted was “unwise”, “The media focused mostly on right-wing attack dog blogger Cameron Slater, whose communications were hacked.[17] Slater did a great job attacking left-wing opponents. But, it was right-wing blogger David Farrar of Kiwiblog fame (Est. 2003) who, essentially, lived a double-life as National’s chief pollster since 2004. Farrar was well-placed to write ‘attack dog’ articles on his popular right-wing blog-site, Kiwiblog, utilizing insider information about issues that National and our opponents were either strong or weak on, according to population demographics across the country, tracked over time.”

Key was still in a candid mood two days after the election. The ex-London and Wall Street banker, who was first head-hunted to lead the National Party in 1998 by then-National Party president John Slater (father of Whale Oil blogger Cameron Slater), admitted in a pre-recorded interview on Campbell Live that dirty attack politics benefits right wing parties such as National’s, while it hurts left-wing ones more.[18]

In other words, Key accepted the thrust of Hager’s book that the dirty political attacks had been occurring, that such attacks benefited his party, and yet he had stuck to his slanderous, logically flawed counter-attack argument that the author of Dirty Politics was a ‘left wing conspiracy theoristall the way through the election campaign.[19]

Brazen Victory: John Key admitted two days after his election win that dirty political attacks helped his party gain and stay-in power.[20]

“At the end of the first 100 days – a media ritual where reporters can be counted on to be big softies on politicians, but you knew that Sophia – Kiwis want to know that they’ll have jobs to pay Santa’s huge bill after Xmas, because they’ve been trained-up through advertising to overspend. That’s why I timed the election to be held on September 20,” Key said, knowing that his psychopathic powers do not work on me.

Nor was Key trying to convince Snoopman News’ miniscule audience. Key was taunting us with candid answers that he calculated, incorrectly, hardly anyone would read this story. What he did not know was that we had obtained a copy of the Missing Million letter from a staff member within the Department of the Prime Minister who saw our official information request and leaked the letter before it got classified Top Secret.

After we interviewed everyone for this story, we took the precaution of counter-leaking the letter via a Twitter account called SpeedySnailMailDump, and because it keeps getting taken down, SpeedySnailMailDump2, SpeedySnailMailDump3 and counting. It has since gone viral on Facebook and can be found here and is mirrored here and archived here on Scoop News.[21]  We also consulted a Tarot card reader Tamzin Lucky-Luste, who confirmed this unfolding event is portentous, and wagered her landlord’s house that the Key Ministry would collapse within six months.

Still stranger things could happen. Christ could make his comeback as a Hollywood movie star upsetting the Vatican’s plans to fake the discovery of a messiah child for Christmas 2017, and Brad Pitt’s ambition to play the legendary figure better than Mel Gibson with a story to make the papal monarch kneel for mercy.[22]

Evidently, the Attorney-General for New Zealand and former Minister for Arts, Culture and Heritage Chris Finlayson, who it is said never blinks, was also in the same goading mood as John Key. Finlayson said, “It’s lucky for us that New Zealand’s ruling class has exploited the economy’s geographical isolation over many decades, to condition Kiwis to be passive, fightless and dim-witted. The New Zealand push-over population is an enduring legacy of our dynastic families’ cultural toanga (or gift) to the economy”, he remarked sternly. I can confirm New Zealand’s Attorney-General does not blink.

Toothless Inquiry: Chris Finlayson’s pre-election Dirty Politics inquiry had no bite without his boss John Key giving testimony.

Auckland University associate law professor Dr. Jane Kelsey wryly stated, “The fact that Attorney-General Finlayson hasn’t been roasted alive for failing to call the prime minister to answer tough questions under oath before the election can only be attributed to FKS, or Fightless Kiwi Syndrome, as we call it in scholarly research.”

Kelsey looked up at the four-storey law library building, where she was due to give a tour five minutes prior, “I mean, if Finlayson’s inaction doesn’t qualify as furtherance of conspiracy, we may as well burn the case law books or breed some very hungry silverfish, to keep our carbon footprint down”. With a single bound, the law professor jumped from the pavement up to a ledge on the fourth floor, broke open an aluminum window, said “Sorry I’m late” to the stunned students, and began her tour for next year’s excited intake.

 

Tracking the Missing Million

The search and rescue mobilization began in the wee hours of the morning following the general election. The Governor-General had called it off in time for elevensies.

According to sources within the state apparatus, the New Zealand Police planned to infiltrate left-wing groups in an effort to find the ‘Missing Million’ voters and raid known activist safe houses at dawn on Monday September 22. The Ministry of Defence intended to use the armed forces to scour the country by land, sea and air. The GCSB (or the Government Communication Security Bureau, for long), which is the only government agency that listens to the people, was frustrated that none of other state forces would hear-out their idea.[23]

John Key’s old school mate and current GCSB Director Ian Fletcher said, “Our idea was to hack into the Electoral Commission’s computer system.[24] We presented the business case to the heads of the police and armed forces via a conference call that took place at the witching hour of 13 o’clock, er, one a.m. They all pretended there was something wrong their lines and us GCSB spooks could hear them making fake crackling sounds.”

“They need to be counting their bloody lucky stars that we didn’t blow the lid on Key’s private joke at the expense of the public over the passage of the GCSB spy bill last year”, added Fletcher unable to contain himself as the anger of being made fun of returned. I raised an eyebrow. Evidently, Fletcher felt it was safe to talk frankly with a journalist from a media outlet run out of shoe-box with a shoe-string economy.

Gaming the Public: New Zealand’s top spook Ian Fletcher was in on the trick to bait Kiwis with a reduced snapper quota, while switching protections against mass surveillance with the passage of the GCSB bill, which made Project Speargun legal.

Gaming the Public: NZ’s top spook Ian Fletcher was in on the trick to bait Kiwis with a reduced snapper quota, while switching protections against mass surveillance with the passage of the GCSB bill, which made Project Speargun legal.

“You’ll recall at the time, Team Key distracted ‘No Nothing New Zealanders’ by threatening to reduce the snapper quota for recreational fishers? And remember that Dotcom henchman, the journalist Glenn Greenwald who revealed Edward Snowden’s NSA slides five days out from the election that showed we needed to get the GCSB spy bill passed, otherwise it would be legal for us to proceed to phase two of Project Speargun?”[25]

I nodded slowly, knowing where this was going because we at Snoopman News had worked this out the day after Greenwald and Snowden appeared at the Moment of Truth meeting held at Auckland’s Town Hall on September 15. I leaned closer, giving him an eye-full of cleavage to keep the spook talking.[26]

Moment of Truth: Edward Snowden says New Zealanders are subject to mass surveillance.

“We called the operation Project Speargun because attaching spy equipment to the underwater telecommunication cable that connects New Zealand’s rock-star economy to the world economy would have been useless without the legislative greenlight.[27] So, the snapper quota issue was used as a distraction to help implement a secret project that the GCSB bill would make legal, Project SPEARGUN!”, boomed Fletcher breaking into a broad grin.

“Get the insider’s joke? Snapper. Speargun”. I raise my other eyebrow. Obviously, New Zealand government insiders think the population is so dumb, they will not get their complex plots once they are clearly explained.

It was a classic bait and switch maneuver”, said Fletcher. My jaw dropped in pretend surprise. “Bait ‘em with threatening to reduce their snapper take and switch the civil liberties mandate with the entrenchment of a mass surveillance net.”

Bait and Switch Move: The Snapper quota issue was a distraction to get the GCSB spy bill to legalize Project SPEARGUN, a secret underwater cable-tapping operation.

When Project Speargun became news Key downplayed the spy agency’s mass surveillance role, and instead emphasized its ‘cyber protection’ function. He cleverly offered up ‘just-in-time’ declassified documents about a programme called CORTEX.[28] “It was a red-herring argument”, chuckled the country’s top spook. “The prime minister’s statements are public relations narratives constructed by Jason Ede, who is one of the best propagandists this far-flung economy has produced”.

The GCSB boss said that Lorde’s homeland had lost the services of a great dark satirist, and believes that had Operation Missing Million By-Catch gone ahead, Ede could have spun a spectacularly savvy yarn for Fightless Kiwis to swallow hook, line and sinker.

It turns out that even the Westpac Rescue helicopter crews got in on the action first and spent much of night scouring New Zealand’s coastlines, including Auckland’s notorious west coast beaches, to look for one million missing people. They had got wind of the planned search and rescue operation, but failed to coordinate their efforts with the police, defence and intelligence apparatus.

When asked why Westpac Rescue were so independent-minded, chopper pilot ‘Skipper’ Richmond said that, “because the helicopter is sponsored by Westpac Banking Corporation, which is owned by Merrill Lynch, JPMorganChase, Citibank, Goldman Sachs, Hong Kong Shanghai Savings Bank, Deutsche Bank, and National Australia Bank, among others, we naturally made our move like our predatory owners.[29] They love to make enormous profits by acting stealthily in collusion with the authorities“, the chopper pilot said proudly. “In a nutshell, we thought were doing our bit to advance the neo-liberal ‘free-market’ project on behalf of dynastic families, both foreign and domestic”.[30]

I raised an eyebrow. “You know,” Richmond continued, “close the net incrementally, round-up free market capitalism’s missing stock, and keep a closer watch on their metadata in case they try escape across the moat undetected”, the helicopter pilot said cheerfully the way people who have developed Don’t-Give-a-Shit Syndrome (D-GASS) because they are financially comfortable and have dieted on TV dinners that are ideologically-infused with neo-liberalism.[31]

At the end of August, John Key claimed he knew the names of every New Zealander who had left for Australia in the prior two months.[32] Richmond said it was important that a million people did not “just up and leave” because they were needed to pay the extra billions the Key government had borrowed from “unnamed foreign pixies”.[33]

Searching for the ‘Missing Million’: Westpac Rescue scoured New Zealand’s coastlines to see if they could find a million people trying to leave New Zealand before it turned completely blue.

In the pre-dawn light, Westpac Rescue found a couple skinny-dipping at a posh Herne Bay beach on the way back to base. When asked if they voted, the pair (whose families are behind the Colmar-Brunton polling company) said, “Team Key, fuck yeah”, they yelled in unison. “We’ve been rooting for Key all through the sporty bombardment of the polling heats”, said Brendan Brunton.

Collette Colmar chimed in cheerily, “We thought what better way to celebrate an election campaign win than skinny dip at dawn. Because, at the beginning of the day, it’s the best way to get the mix right between politics and sport, by having sex with someone of the same race, wealth and privileged class among a school of free-range GPS-tracked snapper.”

Liar, Liar Pants on Fire: Or How NZ’s PM John Phillip Key is Now Fucked!

Dirty Politics. It’s favoured by ‘right’-wing parties in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada. It turns off ‘left’-wing voters. It’s negative tactics undermine political participation, voter turnout and grass-roots efforts to develop politically and economically self-determining communities.

In mid-August 2014, journalist Nicky Hager’s book Dirty Politics: How Attack Politics is Poisoning New Zealand’s Political Environment sparked a scandal for the incumbent National Party in far-flung New Zealand, a ‘free market’ economy led by prime minister John Phillip Key.

The key finding of Hager’s book is that key insiders of the Key regime have been running a two-track public communications strategy, led by the prime minister’s top PR-man and senior advisor, Jason Ede. This two-track strategy cast John Key as “Mr Nice Guy”, while using right-wing bloggers, and a sympathetic news media to attack National’s opponents and influence the outcomes of elections.

(Warning: This article contains sprinklings of ridicule in the absence of a healthy political-economic-media-cultural environment willing to provide resources for satire, critical accounts of our time and the historical continuities regarding the kinds of ‘deep politics’ touched upon here).

John Key and the ‘No Surprises Doctrine’

Journalist Nicky Hager argues in chapter three of his book Dirty Politics that New Zealand’s Security Intelligence Service (NZSIS) got politically involved in discrediting opposition leader Phil Goff, by fast-tracking the release of a SIS-Goff briefing record to a right-wing blogger Cameron Slater.

Where the mainstream media were denied the document, Slater was able to feed the news media, via his Whale Oil blog, negative stories about Goff for 2-3 weeks in the lead-up to the 2011 election period. The negative media barrage made the opposition Labour Party leader look dishonest and ill-equipped to handle flak.

Late last week a video resurfaced that shows New Zealand Prime Minister John Key acknowledging to the news media that he was personally briefed by the head of the SIS, Warren Tucker, that the SIS chief was going to release the SIS-Goff document under an Official Information Act (OIA) request from Cameron Slater.

But, now that the Dirty Politics scandal has erupted, with just over four weeks to the 2014 election, the prime minister has changed his story to say that what he meant at the time in 2011 was that it was his office that was informed, not him specifically.

Here is what NZ Prime Minister John Key said at the press conference on 8 August 2011 in the capital city of Wellington:

“Cameron Slater went to the SIS. And under the Official Information Act, asked for the release of that document. Ah, what happened was Warren Tucker (SIS Chief) didn’t come to me. He went to his legal advisors, and his legal advisors told him this is the process they have to follow. And when he was going through that process, it was at that point he told me he’d release it because he has to tell me that under the ‘No Surprises Doctrine’.” (See link here or at end)

This resurfaced August 2011 video is important because John Key has told the media, including TV3′s John Campbell that he had not been personally briefed on the matter, but that it was the prime minister’s office that had been briefed. (See link here or at end).

Key’s statements in this three-year old video is also crucial to the Dirty Politics scandal exposed by Nicky Hager’s 128 page book, “Dirty Politics” because the SIS got politically involved in discrediting opposition leader Phil Goff. By providing Whale Oil blogger Cameron Slater with the SIS-Goff document in super-quick time, the SIS enabled Slater to feed the news media for 2-3 weeks leading up to the 2011 election period.

Monster of Private Language: NZ Prime Minister John Key stated in August 2011 that he was personally informed by the SIS chief, but now says he meant his office was briefed.

Monster of Private Language: NZ Prime Minister John Key stated in August 2011 that he was personally informed by the SIS chief, but now says he meant his office was briefed.

What the fast-tracked SIS leak did was deflect media attention from a gaff that John Key made while he was in the United States visiting Barack Obama. Key’s gaff was that he jumped to conclusions over a mass killing of Norwegian Labour Party members by a far-right racist at a summer camp outside Oslo.

At a press conference with Obama, Key used the tragedy as an occasion to justify New Zealand’s involvement in America’s War on Afghanistan.

The media reported Key’s gaff. Then key insiders from Key’s administration exploited an apparent mistake by Goff when he claimed he had not been briefed on an earlier security issue when he had. The occasion in question was when a group of Israeli backpackers, who were suspected of spying, hurriedly left New Zealand after one died in the Christchurch earthquake of February 2011.

Blogger Cameron Slater was given the SIS document regarding Goff’s security briefing on the Israeli backpackers’ matter three days after making his request, which is unheard of speed for Official Information Requests. (The news media usually do not get a response in the 20 business days required by law).

In this dirty deflection move, Key’s ‘incompetence’ to justify an unjustifiable foreign policy was forgotten and his National Party went onto win the 2011 election, helped by poor voter turn-out.

This election’s creepiest political actors star in Morph of the Undead: “In a world where two zombies share one mind, two faces, one body politic and every news channel … conniving Volte-Face vows by his Facemind Tip-line to enslave the world.

This election’s creepiest political actors star in Morph of the Undead: “In a world where two zombies share one mind, two faces, one body politic and every news channel … conniving Volte-Face vows to his Facemind Tip-line to dominate the world’s dirt market.

In contradiction to what John Key said in August 2011, upon his return from the trip to the US, the prime minister claimed last week to the news media that  “in this particular case, I wasn’t personally informed”, (as reported in the video accompanying the report, “PM: No political interference over spy papers”). In the text of the same report, Key states in regard to the SIS document release of the SIS-Goff brief to Whale Oil blogger Cameron Slater, “…prior to the release of this one I didn’t have any discussions at all.”

If ‘ordinary’ people changed their story like Key has here when being questioned by the authorities, they would be prosecuted.

 

No Shit, Sherlock! Satire ‘n Ridicule but Mainstream Media (MSM) are Still Children

In point of fact, Ladies and Gentlemen of Forging a New Grass-roots Way Jury, Key’s blatant lying, regular resort to pre-scripted PR lines and ‘Mr. Nice Guy’ casting is being ridiculed left, right, left, right and bull’s-eye.

Laundry Powder or a Critical Book? Here, Dirty Politics has the prime minister John Phillip Key, who wears purple ties on special stately occasions, running to save his own scaredy-cat skin.

But, as political commentator-turned Internet Party press secretary Pam Corkery essentially pointed out on Sunday 24 August, what is missing is the news media fessing up themselves. Because the mainstream media has been complicit in being a conduit for Cameron Slater, other right-wing bloggers, PR companies and media trainers to massage the John Key as ‘Mr. Nice Guy’ media messages, play along with Slater’s and fellow right-wing blogger David Farrar’s attack stories and let the prime minister get away disparaging remarks about oppositional voices.

Instead of pressing Key’s people at the National Party campaign launch on Sunday 24 August, the news media fell into line and limited their questions to Key at the press stand-up ritual afterwards.

Meanwhile, 3News political reporter Brook “puffed-up little shit” Sabin described the Internet-Mana’s campaign launch as “completely derailed by talk of hacking, Kim Dotcom running off and media abuse”, in his Sunday 24 August story. But, it was not derailed by the first two of phenomena Brook Sabin described.

It was the news media’s conscious parallel decision to frame the Internet-Mana launch of Sunday 24 August with the search for the answer to what would seem a defunct question about whether Dotcom was the hacker behind Hager’s book.

Journalist Toby Manhire had already reported on Saturday September 23 that the book’s author, an internationally-respected journalist, had said the MegaUpload founder was not his source. The question was puzzling because Nicky Hager told Manhire he would have “run a mile” if Kim Dotcom had anything to do with the hacked material.

It gets more puzzling when Brook Sabin could have asked fellow 3News journalist Patrick Gower who the source is. Gower told the prime minister in an interview the previous Wednesday (August 20) that 3News had been given thousands of documents earlier that day by the person claiming to be the hacker source for Hager’s book. Gower presented the story on the 6 o’clock August 20 bulletin as though the new information was obtained via the anonymous source’s Twitter account, Whaledump. Did Gower know who the source was?

On Sunday August 24, Corkery was frustrated with journalists who were harassing for an answer to a question about whether the Internet Party founder Kim Dotcom was the source of leaks for Hager’s book, that same source that had set up a Twitter account called Whaledump. With her signature voice belying decades of drinking and smoking and a finger of blame stabbing the air between them, Corkery angrily asked, “When will you glove puppets of Cameron Slater just piss off?”

Brook Sabin et al failed to think about answering Corkery’s question. Nor did he or 3News, One News, or any other major news outlet reflect on their complicity in the largely uncritical coverage that Key’s National government has enjoyed for nearly six years. Corkery was angry because as an experienced media person she could see how the media were playing the launch. The reporters had pre-decided not to focus on the combined party’s policy proposals.

As media scholar Herbert Schiller observed in The Mind Managers (1973), manipulation is so widespread, that a “myth of neutrality” pervades societies, in which manipulated populations think that the core institutions – “government, the media, education and science” – function without being overly compromised by vested interests.

This myth of neutrality media ritual cements an authenticity of media institutions to legitimize ideologically constructed news frames (or angles) with a “common sense” façade that, as Fairclough observed in  Media Discourse (1995), renders the underlying worldview invisible (p.42).

Indeed, TV3‘s news anchor Caroline Robinson and Brook Sabin failed to disclose that the political reporter’s father, Mike Sabin, is the incumbent National candidate for the large, black-sand rich Northland electorate! Brook Sabin’s failure to disclose his conflict of interest in the story is ironic given that his father, Mike Sabin, who is of Tainui whakapapa (genealogy) on his mother’s side, was proud to declare his Māori heritage during his Maiden parliamentary speech.

In a world where people are conditioned by the news media to judge on perceptions, it is crucial to note that TV3 led their 6 o’clock news bulletin of Sunday August 24 with bad news manufactured by National’s outsourced media hit men at the Internet-Mana Party launch. 3News anchor Carolyn Robinson opened the Sunday 6 o’clock bulletin saying:

Kia Ora, Good Evening. The Internet-Mana Party election launch has ended in farce with Kim Dotcom running from the building as journalists were sworn at. It all started when Kim Dotcom referred to hacking in his speech. And when journalists wanted to ask him more, it turned ugly. Here’s Brook Sabin.

Who's Your Daddy? Brooke 'Ngati National' Sabin's father is the incumbent candidate for the iron-sand rich National electorate.

Who’s Your Daddy? Brook ‘Ngati National’ Sabin’s father is the incumbent National candidate for the iron-sand rich Northland ‘free-market’ electorate.

Yet, it  did not all start when Kim Dotcom referred to hacking in his speech.” It all started with Brook Sabin’s decision to go into bat for #TeamKey and Ngati National, along with the other journalists who participated in the politics of distraction.

TV3‘s and Brook Sabin’s failure to disclose this conflict of interest is ironic because it is more in keeping with the Ngati Pākehā (the great English/European tribe) private political system known as capitalism, which uses economic means to control societies, than it is with  whanaungatanga (Māori cultural values to do with relationships, kinship, sense of family connection). Mike Sabin was clearly chosen for his Māori heritage (as well as his life achievements) by National to take on the popular Mana Party leader Hone Harawira, whose party joined forces with newcomer, the Internet Party, earlier this year.

Meanwhile, reporter and deputy political editor, Michael Parkin at OneNews also went for the ‘hacker source angle’ to determine if Kim Dotcom was the anonymous source for Nicky Hager’s book. This is evident by Parkin accosting Dotcom as he arrived at the Internet Mana Party launch. Dotcom is clearly heard saying, “It’s all wrong” in response to being asked if he was behind the Whaledump Twitter account, and therefore the source of the hacked Facebook and emails used in the Dirty Politics book. But, still Parkin persisted, as did Brook Sabin, who can be seen in the 3News story blocking Dotcom in the foyer to the hall where the party’s election campaign launch was held.

3News’ free market’ enthusiast Patrick Gower, filed a critical-lite report that focused on National’s housing policy that essentially amounted to tax-funded scheme to subsidize developers, banks, real estate agents and building supplies cartels in order to win votes from the wealthy and naive Middle New Zealand first home-buyers alike.

At the end of Gower’s story, Key can be seen and heard meekly and nervously saying at the end of the day, “We’ve moved on.” Unless you can come up with something absolutely amazing. We’ve dealt with that issue. Thanks very much.”

Confidence Cracking: To win over their intended victims, psychopaths need to project that they are nice people. If they can’t, they get scared and take flight. Key left this presser at the National campaign launch, his voice breaking moments before.

And then he scarpered out of there, with one of his ‘tells’ that’s gives away he is lying and losing his confidence, the quick inhale of breath and holding his thumbs with index fingers. Confidence, as any reporter should know, especially purple-tie wearing ones such as Patrick Gower, is so crucial to all psychopaths, who must maintain their spell over their intended victims (TV3 22 July 2014). A psychopath’s biggest fear is everyone knowing that deep down inside, they are scaredy-cats.

The Colour Purple: Gower essentially bullied Labour party leader David Cunliffe for wearing a red scarf, a symbolic association to the colour of his party. In the same report, Gower subtly associated himself with the PM’s tie of choice for stately occasions, while doing this stand-up to camera in front of parliament. The Queen of New Zealand holds the ‘Veto Power’ Card.

Meanwhile, on Sunday August 24, OneNews also filed a biased report “National Reboots election with housing plan”, that focused on National’s policy platform of housing, instead of challenging Key on his lies that the SIS had only briefed the Prime Minister’s office on the Slater Official Information Act request and not him personally.

OneNews muppet Corrin Dann, who introduced the story, stated, “John Key needed to draw a line under this whole Dirty Politics saga, he got the big crowd, and to some extent he put the show back on the road.” (#DirtyPoliticsNZ is a scandal not a saga, Corrin Dann. A saga is Game of Thrones). In the middle of the report, in the interests of the ritual of ‘balance’, the reporter and deputy political editor, Michael Parkin, included a montage of Key not answering questions but instead saying repeatedly, “That’s my answer”.

A sock muppet could be more articulate.

So, as the Dirty Politics scandal has unfolded, the mainstream news media has not been honest, or reflective. To rub it in, in the academic pointy-headed smarty pants terms, the cartelized media has lacked reflexivity about their pro-National Neo-liberal Blue Party news coverage.

The dirty secret of New Zealand’s mainstream media, that the super-rich owners, the executives, big advertisers (who are the big-daddy bucks primary audience), and pro-corporate editors, producers, and reporters do not want naive Middle New Zealand to know is that the economy of New Zealand is dominated by just four media corporations. These are: Fairfax Media, Sky TV & Prime, MediaWorks, APN News and Media. While TVNZ dominates on the state-owned side, it is also funded by big corporate advertisers.

Since major news outlets will be the last to admit how they filter the news in the absence of obvious state censorship, comparing ‘paired examples’ is an effective way to detect the biases at work in a propaganda media system. The different treatments in paired examples of news stories, from a similar point in time, can reveal institutional allegiances and the underlying power relations, as described by American media scholars Edward S. Herman and Noam Chomsky in their book, Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media.

So, with the myth of neutrality and the manufacturing of consent in mind, the news media’s light-touch treatment of John Key and National at their party campaign launch the same afternoon is worth some scrutiny.

In effect, both two major TV networks had manipulated their news audiences by blaming Kim Dotcom and Pam Corkery for giving them the material for a story that did not focus on their party policies, even though they had decided that hacking was their ‘angle’, as was clear by their questions when Dotcom arrived.

Both news networks also focused on detailing National’s housing, while they let John Key off the hook on the Dirty Politics scandal, despite the fact that Key was clearly nervous about facing numerous questions. None tried to follow him as he left hastily, nor harass him as he arrived, as they did with Kim Dotcom, which was evident on the unedited tape.

Slam Dunk: Dotcom bragged about hacking Germany’s leader’s credit rating 19 years ago & said he doesn’t like John Key. The Media Children got a sound-bite they could adapt to their pre-determined storyline to exclude the campaign policies.

Slam Dunk: Dotcom bragged about hacking Germany’s leader’s credit rating 19 years ago & said he doesn’t like John Key. The Media Children got a sound-bite they could adapt to their pre-determined storyline to exclude the campaign policies.

The two major media outlets behaviour indicates “conscious parallel business behaviour” or a “meeting of the minds”, as cartel and conspiracy law theory could predict. Such parallel behaviour reveals “conscious parallelism” which means commercial behaviour that displays the same pattern, wherein rivals are aware of their competitors’ activities, and that the content of this awareness is factored into their actions.

Both news outlets had the same treatment for both political party launches, even down to elaborate graphics to present National’s housing policy and no effort made to cover Internet-Mana’s policy platforms, such as committing to full employment, instead of the persistent job destruction, that has been a covert state policy for 30 years.

In other words, OneNews and TV3 had already made a decision to take corrective action to help the National Party, while it baited the Internet Party founder on his arrival, selected that part of the entire launch where Dotcom unwisely bragged about his hacking 19 years ago, and ignored the important candidate speeches by Laila Harre and Annette Sykes. By colluding, the OneNews and TV3 players serve their secret goals, to reinforce the power of big corporate advertisers that back the pro-corporate party National.

Thus, such “enjoinable conduct” can be expected to surface in the news again and again until the key perpetrators are rounded up, and jailed for deceiving their audiences, the New Zealand citizenry and subverting the country’s capacity to strive for a ‘free and open’ society.

As for the media abuse that TV3‘s Brook Sabin claimed, the media abuse really came from the news media, especially OneNews and 3News, for their agenda or enjoinable conduct, to derail the reportage of the Internet-Mana campaign launch. Whereas, Māori Television’s Te Kāea news reports of the two party launches were what viewers need from a news service, mature coverage that summarized the issues, policies and engaged with some of the candidates.

Brook Sabin has a father? With his blogger attack dogs exposed, the mainstream media's dirty tricks become more obvious the day.

Brook Sabin … has a father? With his blogger attack dogs exposed, Key’s dirty tricks become more obvious by the day.

OneNews and 3News failed to do what the New Zealand Monarch’s top representative, Governor-General Sir Jerry Mateparae, said he expected of the news media at a Press Gallery dinner speech late year.

Mateparae, or ‘the GG’, as the media refer to him in their non-celebrity moments, made clear that the media’s role is to assist the communication of political issues, political party communications and how voters choices in a multi-party electoral environment can translate into seats in parliament. Being a militarist, the Governor-General framed his terms as “the rules of engagement”.

If OneNews and 3News had a genuine reason to think that Kim Dotcom was the source of the leaks for Hager’s Dirty Politics book, both networks had the resources to do two stories each, one that focused on Dotcom, the other on Internet-Mana’s launch policies. After all, their main focus at the National Party’s launch the same day was on their policy platform, in keeping with the Governor-General’s, “rules of engagement”.

The two main TV networks failed to give the Internet-Mana Party combo a fair go, when it is the prime minister and his insiders lying, deflecting and running that they should be worried about. Applying cartel theory to the multi-party political environment, OneNews and 3News were, in effect, acting as ‘glove puppets’ or agents in the interests of the National Party and its big corporate sponsors to undermine the new ‘market’ entrant on the political scene: Internet-Mana.

The refusal of OneNews and 3News to supply coverage of the Internet-Mana Party’s policy platforms is in keeping with how cartels practice asymmetric supply restrictions to market, wherein insiders get preference over non-complying rivals.

But it is also in keeping with the key finding of Hager’s book, which is that key insiders of the Key regime have been running a two-track public communications strategy. This two-track strategy, which cast John Key as “Mr Nice Guy”, relied on a covert operation that used right-wing bloggers, and a sympathetic news media to attack National’s opponents and influence the outcomes of elections.

The idea of the dirty politics stratagem, an import from Republican party politics in the United States, where minor scandals, embarrassing smears, and gaffs are inflated out of proportion to their importance, is designed to turn young people and ‘left’-leaning constituents off voting first. As Nicky Hager has compellingly argued, National’s and John Key’s strategy has been conducted with the Republican’s lesson that conservative ‘right’-wing voters still vote in a dirty political environment. It is a lesson that has been exported covertly around the world. The problem is global in scale.

In other words, dirty attack politics, with its modus operandi to cast the leader as friendly, wholesome and folksy or blokey (or whatever fits mainstream cultural norms and values), projects the idea to most people that politics is a mucky business, and cannot possibly be done ‘above-board’ in a clean, mature and fair way.

 

Through the Looking Glass

Key is operating on ‘speed politics’ confidence tricks, wherein if he makes contradictory claims he will simply test the resolve of the news media to keep track of the story. It is a strategy to confuse the public and get him through the weekly media cycle, a formula #TeamKey has been exploiting all along.

The ‘Mr. Nice Guy’ image that Key continues to operate with has an inherent smugness. A smugness not unlike Humpty Dumpty’s egotistical, unhinged confidence.

In Lewis Carroll’s book Through the Looking Glass, when the adventurous Alice met Humpty Dumpty, he revealed his sense of self-importance and smug belief that his risk-taking wall-perching exhibitionism would not result in a fall someday – an event he regarded as purely theoretical.

When Alice catches Humpty Dumpty trying to confuse her, he replies: “When I use a word, it means just what I choose it to mean – neither more nor less,” said Humpty Dumpty.

“When I use a word”: John Key’s smugness for redefining the meaning of words, phrases and the law shift with each media appearance.

“When I use a word”: John Key’s smugness for redefining the meaning of words, phrases and the law shift with each media appearance.

Indeed, scholars have found that Humpty Dumpty was “a monster of private language”.

Similarly, Key’s plays are nothing more than ‘rabbit out of hats’ tricks. To see them requires the observer to grow out of the childish aspirational following that #TeamKey cultivated for John ‘Mr Nice Guy’ Key, the ‘rags to riches’ story, from state house-boy to rich-lister ex-banker, that everyone’s supposed to desire for themselves.

 

Why it’s crucial to G.A.S. (Give a Shit) about Hager’s book

The “Dirty Politics” book is an important one for New Zealanders to read, because attack politics hurts left-wing parties more because ‘left’-minded people tend to be more compassionate, sensitive and principled. ‘Left’-minded people are more likely to be turned-off voting because the dirty politics dominates news media coverage, while right-wing pro-corporate people, who are less principled or more naive, than their left-wing contemporaries, will still turn out to vote.

Therefore, dirty attack politics works in the favour of right-wing pro-corporate, pro-wealthy parties such as National.

Yet, John Key remains brazen as ever, projecting blame onto Nicky Hager, who the prime minister slanderously called a “left-wing conspiracy theorist” and his anonymous hacker source, who provided him with the damning information.

At a press conference on Thursday August 21, Key said to the media: “I think there’s a real risk that a hacker, and people with a leftwing agenda, are trying to take an election off New Zealanders.”

Planet Key sucked out of the National Memory Hole: Nicky Hager’s book sketches a deceptive two-track communications strategy used to cast Key as ‘Mr. Nice Guy’, while key insiders attacked his opponents.

Planet Key sucked out of the National Memory Hole: Hager’s book sketches a deceptive two-track communications strategy used to cast Key as ‘Mr. Nice Guy’, while key insiders attacked his opponents.

In other words, investigative journalist Nicky Hager, the hacker, citizens or legal residents with ‘left-wing views, and the mainstream media who are finally beginning to do their jobs properly, are not New Zealanders.

So, if you are investigative journalist Nicky Hager, the hacker, citizens with ‘left-wing views, and the mainstream media who are finally beginning to do their jobs properly and you were born in New Zealand, or have gained citizenship or residency, you need to ask your parents, the authorities, and especially the Electoral Commission if you are still a New Zealander.

Hearty knee-slapping joke humour aside, Key’s projection of blame is brazen when it is remembered that 1,000,000 people of voting age did not vote in the last election, in a country of 4.5 million people (at the time of the 2011 ‘general’ election).

Indeed, as New Zealand’s top official, Key has left himself wide-open because he has breached Article 12 of the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948. Article 12 includes the provision to protect people against arbitrary attacks against their honour and reputation.

In making this egregious accusation multiple times to multiple reporters from multiple news outlets, the prime minister created the intended  propagandist effect, six and then five weeks out from the election. As a consummate propagandist, Key is trading on the gullibility of Middle New Zealand, who are not taught that the omission of key evidence is a propagandist’s crucial weapon.

The Key regime’s brazen reaction is most serious, unsafe for the ideal of a ‘free and open’ society and so deliberately manipulative in the circumstances, it can only be regarded as furtherance of conspiracy (to gain more political power), as defined in the thesis, “It’s the Financial Oligarchy, Stupid” (p.21-22).

SHOCK TREATMENTS: Military violence, economic warfare and propaganda are required to spread the ‘economic medicine’ of ‘free markets’.

Shock Treatments: Military violence, economic warfare and propaganda are required to spread the ‘economic medicine’ of ‘free markets’.

It becomes even more important to care about the implications of the dirty politics Hager’s book reveals, when one learns that key insiders that comprised a North Atlantic capitalist class set a course in the early 1970s to transform the world under a ‘free market’ framework in order to impose ‘market discipline’, or reassert control over the world. Although this blueprint to transform the world, called the 1980′s Project is not covered in Hager’s book, it is a vital piece of a bigger picture, because elite planners planned to spread what I call systemic political apathy worldwide.

Elite policy planners at a New York-based global policy-shaping think-tank, the Council on Foreign Relations, resolved to “depoliticize” important issues and remove them from popular political consciousness, because the rise of the counter-cultural movements in the 1960s were deemed a threat to capitalist power.

‘Free market shock treatments’ included lifting financial controls to increase the fluidity of capital flows between countries, the corporatization and privatization of state infrastructure and services, the introduction of user charges, shifting the tax burden ‘downward’, and down-sizing public sector employment. Targeted populations were overwhelmed with the economic shocks as whole sectors of society were transformed and coerced to support the new framework.

The free market economic shock therapies were themselves mechanisms of coercion, because all sectors of society were thrown into crisis. Everyone suffered, except key insiders, who became richer and accumulated more political power.

It is the dirty politics of the ‘free market economic framework’, or the Shock Doctrine, that was deployed in the 1980s and continues to wreck havoc on New Zealand’s population that is the deeper story behind Hager’s Dirty Politics.

“Bibi, stop bombing, already … or we’ll cut your bullets,” Obama tells Israel’s prime minister Benjamin (Bibi) Netanyahu (Leaked White House Transcript)

Gaza, an open-air prison? Israel’s $3 billion-a-year welfare check threatened? America scolds Israel? STOP THE PRESS!!! A leaked White House transcript of a heated phone-call earlier today reveals that US President Barack Obama told Israel’s Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that his apartheid regime’s bombardment of Gaza city is stretching America’s Hollywood-Bubble Gum TV News propaganda system out to its theoretical limits. Because Israel’s brutal siege on Gaza associates the US with a war crime that is becoming obvious to “Dumb-dee-doo citizens”, Obama told Netanyahu to “desist already” with Israel’s massacre of Palestinians trapped inside the walled-in city. Snoopman News publishes this leak exclusively here in humankinds’ interests.

Heated Exchange: Barack Obama tells Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu he won’t get anymore bucks if Israel keeps bombing Palestinians in Gaza.

  Scoop by Iggy Swind

The Leaked White House Phone-call Transcript (30 July 2014, EST ):

“Enough already, Ben! We would have you charged with international war crimes, but the United States has done what you’re doing in 50 places since WWII.[1] I’m telling you to stop because we’re losing the propaganda war.[2] Dumbe-dee-doo citizens everywhere are beginning to see our collective hypocrisy, our belligerence and our World Domination end-game.”[3] You’re making the Anglo-American-Zionist Nexus an at-risk social-group because our disproportionate blame-share quota has now gotten harder to keep suppressed.”

But, Barry, with all due respect alread-”

“Bibi, enough already! Yes, we need Israel to keep the Arab states in check while the Big Four oil cartels extract our black gold from under their sands. Yes, we need the Israeli nuclear terror threat while our low-grade proxy wars cause the capitulation of the recalcitrant Muslim states to the Anglo-American banking cartels. Yes, we need your Zionist regime to help us keep the world trading oil in US dollars, so that the planet’s Dumb-dee-doo citizens finance our militarization of Earth with their consumption and taxes.”[4]

Keeping the Score (Above Top Secret): The African-American president reminds the racist Israeli leader how the Anglo-American-Zionist Nexus is an at-risk social-group because their disproportionate blame-share quota is getter harder to keep suppressed.

Keeping the Score (Top Secretly): The African-American president tells the racist Israeli leader how the Anglo-American-Zionist Nexus is an at-risk social-group.

“So, what’s your beef Barack?”

[Sigh] “Ben, you’re making us look bad-ass, so stop. Bibi, stop bombing, already!!!”

“Hamas started it!”

“In a way, they did Bibi. [Sniggering] They were democratically elected in 2006 because the Palestinians wanted a government with the balls to stand up to their vicious, psychopathic criminal neighbours from Hell.”[5]

“Moreover, if you go back to 1948, the Zionist leadership that founded the Israeli state started it when they demolished 400 villages.[6]

And, if you go back even further, the Anglo-American Brotherhood started it before World War I, with their rivalrous plot to redraw the world maps, in order to egotistically dominate the world through the control of oil, finance, and supremacy in military power, propaganda and projected ideas such as Exceptionalism, derived merely from the protection that sea water afforded them”

“Christ Bibi! Even diligent Germany tried to get the English to co-invest in the Berlin-to-Baghdad railway during the 1890s and early 1900s, to transport oil back to Europe, but the toffy English decided to play-off all sides against one another in a psychopathic attempt to reinvigorate their fading sissy empire, and the sneaky American Masonic Brotherhood joined in the ‘Great Game’ and came out trumps.”[7]

No more bullets Bibi: Netanyahu told Israel will be isolated if it keeps making the United States “look bad-ass.”

No more bullets Bibi: Netanyahu told Israel will be isolated if it keeps making the United States “look bad-ass.”

“Oy Gevalt!” (imagine any four letter swear word).

“Benjamin, everyone can see Gaza is the world’s biggest open-air prison. Even the Afrikaner Broederbond [a white supremacist brotherhood] weren’t this brazen during their apartheid reign in South Africa.[8] You’re pushing our Zionist-controlled White House-Hollywood-Bubble Gum TV News propaganda system out to its theoretical limits, Bibi.[9] So, desist already, or we’ll cut your bullets, your bombs and your 3 billion-a-year allowance.”

“Fakakta! (This is fucked-up) [Pause] Can I shoot Arabs on the West Bank, or in Jerusal-?”

“Nooo! Jeesus, Bibi. [Pause. Inaudible moaning from Jerusalem end of the line] Benjamin, don’t plotz (explode) on me. Look, we need you Zionists to stop killing Palestinians, for Christ’s sake. Or, rather for our World Domination plot’s sake.”

“But, Barack, as I said on CNN, Hamas wants, ‘to pile up as many civilian dead as they can’ and ‘use telegenically dead Palestinians for their cause.’”[10]

“Wow! [Pause] Yooou were actually serious. We thought you were just spinning PR lines. [Muffled chuckles] Ben, there’s nothing telegenic about dead children, weeping fathers and howling mothers. The images of bodies, body parts and blood-stained rubble are killing our alliance.”

“How?”

Oh Brother: Hollywood’s Director listens to Netanyahu’s ‘Arab problem.’

Oh Brother: Hollywood’s Director of War Theaters listens to Netanyahu’s ‘Arab problem.’

“Weellll, the problem is Dumb-dee-doo people believe Palestinians, like everyone else, have the right to life, liberty and love. It’s a major drawback of our schmaltzy Hollywood propaganda system that American Zionists created here in cahoots with the Pentagon and the Department of War, before its was re-branded following World War II. But you knew that, already. [Silence] When we promote freedom and democracy so much, eerr, Dumb-dee-doo people believe that it’s bad to take the rights to life, liberty and yadda yadda away from people by, eerr, exploding hi-speed, hot pieces of metal into their fellow humans going about their trauma-filled daily lives.”[11]

“Verklempt! Jesuus, Barack you’re going soft!”

Massacre in Gaza: 1359 killed, 7677 injured by Israeli ‘Defence’ Forces since July 8.

More Bang Please:  Zionist cartoonists asked for Hollywood-style explosions to inspire dramatic Gaza Comic Strip pictures.

“Weellll, the problem is Dumb-dee-doo people believe Palestinians, like everyone else, have the right to life, liberty and love. It’s a major drawback of our schmaltzy Hollywood propaganda system that American Zionists created here in cahoots with the Pentagon and the Department of War, before it was re-branded following World War II. But you knew that, already.

“Verklempt. (To get choked up, but said here sarcastically). Don’t you care about the fascist aesthetic taste for mayhem? Jesuus, Barack you’re going soft!

“No, I’m playing the hand that’s been dealt to me, Ben. Your military’s bombardment is making even Dumb-dee-doo Christians, video games addicts and the UN question America’s alliance with Israel. Even Jews can see that Zionist Israel is an expansionist, racist apartheid regime.[12] Not because you even come close to the numbers of innocent civilians we’ve obliterated in Iraq and Afghanistan. Rather, it’s because you haven’t got control of the imagery coming out of Gaza that we had in those other War of Terror theaters. So, no more killing Ben ’til we figure out a way to do it with a media-secure war theater lock-down.”

When Zionist Propaganda Collapses: The Israeli apartheid regime’s staple ‘anti-Semitic’ rhetoric aimed at critics of it’s state terror toward Palestinians becomes shaky spiel.

 Zionists speak shaky spiel, say New York Jews: Cracks first appeared in Israel’s ‘anti-Semitic’ defense mechanism, The Zion Dome, when New York Jews realized Palestinians were excluded from Soccer World Cup because they didn’t have a state.

“Shmegegge!” (Jerk)

“I heard that Bibi. I’m cutting kosher wine, chocolates, the Bling and Lego shipments! You can explain to the Israeli middle-class, who won’t be able to afford black-market prices, why.” (Laughter from White House end of the line)

“Oh please, please. [Pause] Mr President, middle-class Jews demanding to know why treats, trinkets and toys have been cut is more dangerous than Hamas, Hezbollah, Al Qaeda, ISIS and NATO put together. All hell will break loose. Even Zionists don’t dare mess with a Jews’ access to treats, trinkets and toys. Mr Presi-”

Harry Potter Breaks Hollywood Gag-clauses

Harry Potter breaks Warner Brothers gag-clauses. The wizard reveals What Must Not Be Spoken in the News Media Anywhere in the Muggle World. Here, for the first time, the shocking truth behind why one of the world’s most famous wizards was forced to live a double life as Daniel Radcliffe in the Muggle World since he signed with the Hollywood movie studio. Potter spoke on the record with investigative journalist Sophia-Bigg-Storm about how the White House-Hollywood-Military-Media Propaganda Complex censored all wizards and witches who appeared in the Harry Potter movies from talking about a 900-year old Wizard-Goblin Bankers’ War waged for financial control of the Muggle World.

Epic Storm Brewing: US President Barack Obama and New Zealand Prime Minister (& ex-banker) John Key read about the suppression of Harry Potter’s interview following his stormy rendezvous with Snoopman News.

By Sophia Bigg-Storm, 19 July 2014

Raining on the Dark Wizards’ Parades

Wizard Harry Potter has shocked the Dark Forces of the Magical Realm that rule over the Muggle World. The shock is not because Harry Potter spoke about the double life he has lived as Daniel Radcliffe in the Muggle World since he signed with the Warner Brothers movie studio to make the Harry Potter film series. Every muggle kid over the age of big six has worked this out and told their parents.

Rather, Potter has rocked the White House-Hollywood-Military-Media Propaganda Complex because he has spoken to a non-aligned news-outlet located in the Muggle World about an epic war being fought between Dark Wizards and Goblins. (It is a war fought mostly between males, because they dominate the top positions of banking and most other institutions).

This war has intensified in the last four decades.[i] In short, these  creatures are using their magical powers to fight over the politics of money. Bless.

Potter stated that Warner Brothers movie studio had written gag-clauses into all the wizards and witches contracts, including his and his co-stars’ witch, Hermione Granger and wizard, Ron Weasley. The Hollywood executives anticipated as the magically gifted stars grew older, they would learn about the Wizard-Goblin’s Bankers’ War and likely try to alert entertainment-hungry naïve muggles about it. The wizard said they tried on numerous occasions to tell muggle reporters, but they would think the three young wizards were playing on the accepted separation between make-believe and make-real.

Furthermore, Potter explained key insiders of the world’s major news outlets have access to the major magical-stream media newspaper, the Daily Prophet, and like the world’s political leaders, they are well-briefed on the Wizard-Goblin Bankers’ War. The wizard said these key insiders were offered interviews with numerous wizards and witches, but all rebuffed the opportunities, except The Washington Post, whose reporter fantisized about scooping Magicgate, but was too caged in conformity and ‘chickened-out’ at the last minute.

Moreover, Potter’s interview with the non-aligned news outlet Snoopman News in Auckland New Zealand, was sent to all the world’s major news outlets via the Daily Prophet newspaper and a planet-wide muggle media blackout on the scoop followed. We also checked with our secret contacts in the Obama administration, who checked White House transcripts of phone calls, memos and other communications that are currently blocked from being ritualistically leaked. Those sources confirmed Harry Potter’s story, but could not risk providing communications at this time.

Fraternal Friends: The world’s major muggle-stream media outlets maintain a black-out on the Wizard-Goblin Bankers’ War.

Because of this worldwide censorship by unofficial means, numerous Light-working Wizards and Witches decided that it was time to break the Ministry of Magic’s law. That law stipulates that wizard and witches Must Not Reveal to Muggles the Magical Realm.

But, the Light-working Wizards and Witches decided that unless they did, muggles would become enslaved forever by debt. To this end, Harry Potter was sent via a hi-speed magnetized train network that runs through a natural tunnel labyrinth within the Earth’s crusty rock, to a far-flung outpost of the American Empire, the New Zealand economy.

Potter said, “We’ve been extremely concerned about the fight between Dark Witches and Wizards and their enemies, the Goblin Bankers for some time.” A capitalist fraternity of Dark Wizards and Witches had struggled, throughout time and between the magical and muggle realms, with Goblin bankers for world domination, he said.[ii]

 

World Domination by Finance

The famous wizard said that the American Empire has used its military power to force or coerce nearly every country in the world to trade oil in US dollars, during an interview that took place at night on the mean streets of Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city, in the middle of a week-long storm.

Harry Potter said, “[t]he US dollar, which has been the world’s unofficial world currency since World War II, has been backed by the United States’ muggle military, and not gold or silver as it has been at various times.”[iii] By making the US dollar the central currency to trade oil, the world has, in effect, been financing the Dark Wizard’s militarization of the far-flung planet, Potter explained.[iv]

As audacious as that plot is, the Fraternity of Dark Wizard bankers and their rival Goblin bankers have burdened the world with debt to the tune of over $100 trillion.[v] Potter stated, “The Fraternities of Dark Wizard and Goblin Bankers have captured most nation states during the last nine centuries  through wars and terrorism, and other forms of traumatizing drama, including financial, economic and psychological warfare, with religious beliefs playing a major supporting role.[vi]

Their purpose has been to ensure that spineless governments borrow off the spiffily-dressed  bankers, rather than control the issuance of the currencies and credit through their dimly-lit state treasuries, Potter said.[vii] As a result, most governments lack the sovereign power to supply their jurisdictions with the right proportion of debt-free currency and interest-free credit to facilitate the creation of resilient, sustainable and peaceful grown-up societies.[viii]

It gets worse.

The rivalrous Dark Wizards and Goblin Bankers all over the world ensure the supply of cash is scarce. “Due to this enforced scarcity, most muggles are restricted from earning enough and they are coerced to borrow from the banking fraternities,” Potter said.[ix]

The Light-working wizard stated the Dark Wizard and Goblin bankers do not actually lend money they have when they brazenly make loans. It turns out that credit is simply magical money conjured into existence out of annoyingly thin air at the time naïve muggle ‘borrowers’ agree to make payments in the future to service the ‘loan’.[x]

Sellers of goods and services bought on credit deposit the credit funds throughout the banking system. These funds get counted as new deposits. The banks use the deposits “to buy interest-bearing treasury securities, corporate bonds and other financial instruments, like shares” to earn income off. It’s upon that base of deposits that banks make new ‘loans’, also conjured into existence out of annoyingly thin air.[xi]

“What this means,” explained Potter, “is that the entire Muggle race is forced to compete for the cash that the Dark Wizard and Goblin bankers keep scarce, in order to try to make enough money to pay the ‘loans’ and interest.”

“Because the Dark Capitalist Wizards, Witches and Goblins are so well-connected to their magical insiders working in politics, judiciaries, militaries, academia, ecclesiastical and media institutions, their spells over muggles are tricky to break”, Potter said with a raised eyebrow, indicating he could hardly believe how brazen this dark network of ‘has-beens’ has been fooling even low-level bean counters.[xii]

Dark Royalty Blood

We reached Britomart Train Station in downtown Auckland, New Zealand, and stepped into the wall at Platform 3 and One Third. We were now among the hubbub of the magical world in the underground Transcontinental Train Transport station.

Potter retrieved his wand and with the drying charm, exaresco, he made us dry again. We said goodbye. I saw what I thought was childrens’ purple water-colour paint on the pavement. “Purple paint,” I blurted to escape embarrassment of the fan-girlish feeling that came over me.

Harry followed my gaze and exclaimed “Wizard blood … or witch blood.”

“I thought witch and wizard blood was red,” I said.

“Not Dark Royalty blood,” said Potter, as we both tracked the purple blood splotches that started where I stood and led to the super-fast magnetic propulsion train, which took only three hours to travel to the opposite side of the planet. “It’s always purple!”

Dark Wizard or Witch Blood? Signs that a wounded Dark Royal boarded the fast train back to London.

Dark Wizard or Witch Blood? Signs that a wounded Dark Royal boarded the fast train back to London.

Potter boarded. “Be careful Harry,” I called.

I could see him following the trail of blood up an aisle, with his wand ready to zap at danger.

Potter swung around and I jumped. He opened a window. “Hermione wrote up notes and a list of references for you to use with the interview,” Potter called out, handing me a notebook with a green owl on the cover.

We both laughed hard. Harry Potter closed the carriage window a moment before the train bolted into the night throwing him hard against a seat.

I realized then that Harry Potter is one of the bravest, big-hearted people I have met. It would be shallow to write-off the risks that Potter takes simply because he is gifted with magical powers. To think that would mean to be suckered into the media persona conjured by J.K. Rowling and Warner Brothers.

Most people of privilege, including middle-class muggles, are too scaredy-cat to investigate the truth behind ‘the news’ themselves.[xiii]

Whereas, Harry Potter is using his privilege to help muggles see that what little freedom they have is in peril and to believe in their own source of magic: intuition, imagination and inquisitiveness.

As I reached our world headquarters, where elves were cleaning the newsroom, control rooms and studios, I wondered what colour would be used to depict witches’ blood in tampon and sanitary-pad commercials in the magical realm.

I told some of the elves, that I had rescued from labour camps in South East Asia while investigating Santa’s vast network of sweat-shops, that Harry Potter had recognized the purple blood of a wizard or witch. They were cleaning the toilets.

The elves said they did know what colour witches’ period blood would be depicted. But they said it would certainly not be purple in commercials. Not with Wizards and male Goblins controlling darkly magical capitalism.

====================

Amazonian-American journalist Sophia Bigg-Storm tried to break the story that World I and World II were conjured by an Anglo-American Brotherhood who conspired to dominant the world by controlling oil and finance, through a system enforced by military aggression, subversion and other intrigues.  Bigg-Storm’s investigations were suppressed by her former employer, The National Enquirer,  a newspaper that movie critics think is just make-believe because it was depicted in the movie Citizen Kane. She was recently gifted Wonder Woman’s Lasso of Truth on a recent holiday to her ancestral home of Paradise Island, which is driving other reporters mad with envy.

Conjuring the Smiling Assassin

A Money Tree Wand. An ex-banker’s note book of spells. Objects of a double life. A financial wizard who was just a muggle with no magical ability. A wizard comedian willing to train the ex-banker in the Dark Arts of Wizard Bastardry. Now, the banker is running a country and the comedian is dead. Enter, an Amazonian reporter packing Wonder Woman’s Lasso of Truth. This is the incredible story of how wizard comedian Rik Mayall conjured the ‘smiling assassin’, AKA John Key, New Zealand’s prime minister. Although numerous parliamentary press reporters in New Zealand witnessed John Key’s Lasso of Truth Interview, none have run stories to expose the shocking truth. The NewStatesman, in association with Snoopman News, reports the intrigue here.

From Muggle to Wizard: Ex-Banker’s Suppressed Lasso of Truth Interview.

From Muggle to Wizard: Ex-Banker’s Suppressed Lasso of Truth Interview.

Written by Simon Twoleftfeet, 21 June 2014

(Based on Reporting by Sophia Bigg-Storm)

 

English Comedian, Rik Mayall, who died on June 9 in London, once trained New Zealand’s current prime minister, John Key, in the Dark Art of Wizard Bastardry, while the former investment banker-turned politician started work at Merrill Lynch in London.

John Key, who has been prime minister of New Zealand for nearly six years and whose net-worth is estimated to be $50 million, was head of global foreign exchange at Merrill Lynch in the square mile financial district of the City of London, between 1995 and 2001. During this time at Merrill Lynch, he became known among staff as the ‘smiling assassin’, evidently because he maintained a smile while firing hundreds of staff as the impacts of the Wall St-Washington-City-of-London Complex-engineered Asian financial crisis caught up with the global-scale investment bank. Or, so the tale went.

It has emerged that Key’s killer smile originally came from Rik Mayall. More specifically, it was inspired by a character Rik Mayall played, Alan Beresford B’Stard, an ambitiously greedy, obnoxious and scruple-deficient Conservative Party MP, in the British television satire series, The New Statesman (1987-1992). The fictional Tory MP is one of British comedy’s best-known bastards.

Comic Wizard: Mayall’s fans did not realize he used magic to be funny.

Beginning in the northern winter of 1995, Key met Mayall once a week on Wednesday nights, a day the pair called “Wicked Wednesday’s”, for private tutorials that began at the Mayall’s family home. The instruction Mayall gave Key was more than the usual techniques of acting, such as knowing your character inside out.

The tuition quickly became occult when Mayall discovered Key did not know a thing about magic.

Mayall met Key when the investment banker accosted the comedian at the old world headquarters of the BBC, in reception. Key propositioned Mayall to teach him “bastard tricks”. But because Key, like most New Zealanders, slurs his vowels even when sober, the English comedian thought the former bond and derivatives trader was telling him that a consignment of bio-engineered sheep were held up in busted trucks.

Evidently, Mayall’s reaction was to pull his famous ‘glare face’, and he flashed a look at a BBC security guard, Bob Batton-Wheelder, to remove the hazard because he thought Key was mad. But, when the former BBC security guard, translated Key’s request, Mayall raised his eye-brow. Batton-Wheelder says Mayall’s devious grin grew as he heard Key say clear enough, “I’ve got loads of money. I’m a banker.” Key told Mayall he wanted to be New Zealand’s leading statesman.

Messianic Victory Gesture: Mayall taught Key how to be ‘God’s gift to your nation’. Key, an atheist, mucked up the gesture.

The Key B’Stard Project

Following Mayall’s sudden death after a jog, a former chief economist at Chase Manhattan Bank informed an up-start news outlet from far-flung New Zealand, Snoopman News, that New Zealand’s current prime minister had at one time been friends with Rik Mayall. Snoopman News immediately deployed two journalists, one to interview the source of the tip-off, Professor Michael Hudson from the University of Missouri, and another to interview New Zealand’s prime minister, John Key.

At first Key was cagey about his relationship with Rik Mayall, but fortunately the reporter, Sophia Bigg-Storm, anticipated the prime minister’s famous defence mechanisms. Being part-Amazonian, her native people gave her a gift so precious, most reporters would kill for it: Wonder Women’s Lasso of Truth.

Bigg-Storm mentioned to Key that she was part Amazonian. Key’s replied in all seriousness, “Midas, I always wanted to go there!” Having distracted the prime minister with the male fantasy of being holed up on an island inhabited exclusively by gorgeous women, Bigg-Storm left her cleavage unguarded for gorkelling, providing further distraction so that the intrepid reporter could slip the Lasso of Truth over the prime minister’s head, before his skull-encased brain knew what was happening.

When Key said, “You got a great rack”, Bigg-Storm knew the lasso worked.

Under the influence of the Lasso of Truth, John Key divulged that he and his wife, Bronagh, shared Christmas Eve of 1995 with Rik Mayall and his wife, Barbara. The Mayall’s gave John a magic wand, and Bronagh, a magic broom. The Key’s did not realize they were real and thought it was “just funny.”

Rik Mayall teased John Key saying, “it’s what every banker secretly wishes for, the power to conjure money in every land out of annoyingly thin air.” The English comedian had assumed that the investment banker was a financial wizard, of the magical kind.

When Rik Mayall realized John Key was just a muggle, he resolved to mentor the banker in the Dark Art of Wizard Bastardry. But, the only way for a wizard (or witch) to bestow muggles with wizard (or witch) powers that have no innate magical ability is to give them regular blood transfusions. Hence, ‘The Key B’Stard Project’, as the pair called it, required that they meet every week and use the time for tuition, while Key absorbed wizard blood.

 

Under the Influence of the Lasso of Truth

Under the tuition of Wizard Rik Mayall, John Key received what was essentially a post-graduate degree in dark magic. For three months they met at Mayall’s home, and then after that at the Leaky Cauldron tavern, 0n Daring Road, in London. Mayall had lent his Invisibility Cloak to Key so that he would not be seen entering or leaving his home or the tavern.

Mayall instructed Key to swat up on spells. The investment banker found himself fixated at first on the ones beginning with S, such as the Stealth Sensoring Spell, Specialis Revelio  and the classic Switching Spell. Key said he found himself “quite subconsciously” striking vertical lines “through each of the ‘S’s transforming them into dollar signs.”

“That’s was when I hit upon the idea of running the Muggle-Wizarding currency exchange unit at the goblin-run Gringotts Wizarding Bank”, the former Merrill Lynch banker said, smiling the assassin’s smile.

Because he knew the goblins would not let any human, especially a muggle, run Gringotts Wizarding Bank, he used the Specialis Revelio spell to gain the leverage he needed. Specialis Revelio, which wizards and witches use to reveal an objects secrets or magical properties, is Key’s favorite spell.

Merrill Lynch’s head of global foreign exchange was able to locate the financial claims to wealth not only hidden within the City of London’s financial district. Key was also able to track and tabulate the wealth stored in Gringotts Wizarding Bank and, most importantly, the biggest fortunes: Their Identities The Bankers Must Not Name To Whom They Belonged.

“I mapped the secret magical riches stashed in the enchanted City of London. As any Muggle cartographer will tell you, new maps of the world are valuable tools for conquest,” said Key gleefully.

Key got to run the Muggle-Wizarding currency exchange at Gringotts.

“The hilarious thing is you see this vast network of vaults and magic carts traveling on tracks depicted in the Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, and the world’s movie-going Muggles think it’s just fiction” said Key chuckling.

Tool of Conquest: Financial Wizard John Key used the Specialis Revelio spell to map Gringotts’ labyrinthine tunnel network below London’s financial district.

Under the influence of the Lasso of Truth, Key revealed that a Fraternity of Dark Capitalist Wizards evade taxes and move capital freely in the Muggles World. Indeed, they have constructed a Worldwide Financial Wizard Haven Complex that is sponsored by many Muggles states, including the United Kingdom and the United States. “Meanwhile, Muggles pay taxes”, said Key.

These Financial Wizard Havens have sprung up wherever there was a goblin bank. “That’s what the Global Financial Crisis of 2008 was really about”, said Key. “There’s a financial war going on between goblins and financial wizards for control of the banks, and in-turn to control whole societies through debt. The wizards working with the light side of the force are trying to stop it”, said Key, matter-of-factly. But, because events behind ‘the news’ are controlled by highly-networked Dark Wizard Satirists, Muggle journalists, editors and current affairs hosts fail to realize the extent to which their attempts to inform the vegged-out Muggle populations are undermined.

Borrowing from a Foreign Pixie

In January 2011, when John Key announced selling state-owned assets, including four power companies, the justification that he provided was that New Zealand was borrowing $300 million a week from a ‘foreign pixie’. When pressed about why a government lacks the sovereign power to make its own money debt-free, Key said, “the cover story is that politicians would just print too much money and thereby make the currency worthless.”

But, he said cheerfully that what the Global Credit Boom of 1991 to 2007 really showed was that a Fraternity of Dark Wizard and Witch Bankers had done exactly that and when the boom turned to bust, they simply burdened tax-paying Muggles with the bill.

“”The truth is,” said Key, “a Fraternity of Dark Wizard and Witch Bankers has gained control over almost every nation through wars and terrorism, and other forms of coercion, including financial and economic warfare. This Fraternity of Dark Capitalist Wizards, of which I am one, have always been superior central planners than anything the communist Muggles states have been able to pathetically conjure. We call our methods of military violence, covert terrorism and coercion, the Shock Doctrine.”

Shock Treatments: Military violence, economic warfare and propaganda are required to spread the ‘economic medicine’ of ‘free markets’.

While bound to be honest by the power of the enchanted golden chord, John Key said it was remarkable that Muggles everywhere had failed to gain back most of their ancestral lands lost over centuries of conquest by the Dark Wizards. He said, “Muggles are such suckers for war propaganda that they’ve come to believe war is a part of human nature. Really?” Key said chuckling, for rhetorical effect. “If war is just a part of human nature, then how come Hitler had to shout so hard?” he guffawed.

“Through these various kinds of warfare,” Key continued once his assassin’s smile had regained control of his face, “the Dark Wizards and Witches have come to own vast tracts of land and control much of the rest collectively, under the construct of nation states, and other smaller and larger political units. By engineering these crises, these Dark Forces have accumulated enormous power, and they use it to ensure that cash in any economy is scarce”, smiling like as an assassin with an aesthetic taste for mayhem.

The ex-Wizard banker also disclosed that Wizard Bankers practicing the Dark Arts of Wizard Bastardry long ago “found a way to conjure magical money out of annoyingly thin air”, Key said. By this Key meant credit. “And because the Fraternity of Dark Wizards and Witches own most of the media,” New Zealand’s prime minister continued, “we can out produce pesky professors and professionals who try to expose what is essentially the framework for a debt-enslavement system.”

Mechanisms of Coercion: 63,000 rich and super-rich people possess $39 trillion in wealth, while 800 million people are starving.

“Common words associated with banking such as ‘loans’, ‘lending’ and ‘borrower’, are used as marketing tools to deceive the Muggles populace,” explained New Zealand’s prime minister, as though somewhere deep inside it was paining him to ‘unpeel’ this layer of the ‘banking onion’. “Banks don’t actually lend the money they receive as deposits.”

“Only gullible Muggles would be stupid enough to think that the loans they take out with banks are actually the funds of other people’s savings. In fact, credit is just funds borrowed into existence,” he said chuckling under the magically-enchanted Lasso of Truth. Where before, Key pretended to care when he had been questioned over important issues like ‘child poverty’, and agreed that the houses that poor people lived in could be better insulated (NewStatesman Editor’s Note: It is incredible that no one in New Zealand’s news media asked John Key where poor children would get the money to insulate their parents’ rented homes, especially as he rejected the idea of child welfare payments, which they could have used to fund the work. After all, his government is subsidizing landlords, who are the beneficiaries of over a billion dollars a year, for charging too much rent. Indeed, the NewStatesman notes that the ‘debate’ on ‘child poverty’ would be over if New Zealand’s media stopped ‘naming the victim’ and called the issue by its correct name, ‘greedy grown-ups’).

Key explained that banks use most of the money they receive as deposits “to buy interest-bearing treasury securities, corporate bonds and other financial instruments, like shares.”

The ex-Wizard banker also revealed that Dark Wizards use the Stupefying Spell on all loan contracts, credit cards and associated advertising.”

Greedy B’Stards: Alan B’Stard enjoyed cash, while wizard banker John Key used magic to conjure credit.

It seems that bankers from the Magical Realm are sticklers for balancing the books, as far as it suits them. Forests of money trees grow wherever real forests of the Muggles World have been destroyed by Muggles for economic gain (often under a spell). Furthermore, if a wizard banker desires to gain more wealth in the Wizard World, it is crucial that he possesses a Money Tree Wand that is made of wood from the same land to be exploited. Such wands also have to be made in the same land the wood came from too.

Not surprisingly, in the circumstances, John Key possesses a Money Tree Wand, made of Kauri wood, that he cut from a young sapling growing under a great Kauri tree called Tāne Mahuta, that lives in the far north of New Zealand. In addition to exploiting a land for economic gain, and the power that confers, Money Tree Wands can be used for all other spells.

A Wizards’ Falling Out

It turns out that the last time John Key saw Rik Mayall was shortly after the English comedian had his alleged quad bike accident in April 1998, an accident that fractured his skull. But, John Key divulged that Mayall fell from his broomstick, because the young dark wizard banker stiff-armed the comedian who gave chase because Key threatened to blow up his house.

Mayall and Key had an altercation one morning when Key was flying on Bronagh’s broomstick to work following the Thames River, under the cover of Mayall’s Invisibility Cloak. Mayall was furious with Key when he found out that the Anglo-American Dark Wizards of Banking had caused the Asian Financial Crisis that started in 1997.

“He could see that such a criminal group, if left at-large, would plot bigger and bolder power crimes”, said Key. Mayall wanted Key to blow the whistle. As they flew at speed under London Bridge as it was being raised to allow a ship to pass through, Key said, “Look Rik, it’s not going to happen. I’m making fuckloads of money, beyond my darkest happy dreams. And besides, its fun watching Muggles struggle up here from Bronagh’s broomstick.”

Broom Chase: Rik Mayall pursued John Key as they rode magic brooms at high speed under Tower Bridge, London, while arguing about financial wizardry.

Broom-stick Chase: Rik Mayall pursued John Key as they rode magic brooms at high speed under Tower Bridge, London, while arguing about financial wizardry.

Key said he could tell Mayall was going to keep following him to work and make a scene. Merrill was deep in Dark Financial Wizardry like the rest of the Dark Wizards’ global banking cartel.

Then the chase was on to the Mayall’s house and the English comedian attempted to zap his prodigee with attack spells. Although Bronagh’s broomstick was faster than Mayall’s, Key said he could only avoid the comedian “unfunny zaps” for so long. When Key was near Mayall’s house, he stopped abruptly in mid-air, jolted his arm out and braced himself for the impact.

But, whether through cunning, indifference or forgetfulness, Mayall had failed to tell Key there was one draw-back to being a Muggle without any innate magical ability that is mentored to become a wizard or witch. Mayall did not tell Key that if a mentor wizard dies, a muggle who has received wizard blood, because of the established lack of natural magical powers, will steadily lose magical strength.

“As soon as Rik hit the ground I lost control of Bronagh’s broom. I crashed into a pond”, said Key.

Key gave Mayall blood transfusions covertly during the night under the watchful eye of two great light-working wizards, Dumbledore and Gandalf. Throughout these visits, Key smiled and that is how he became known as the ‘smiling assassin’.

Smarmy Statesmen: Mayall found showing Key how to smile smarmily was the easiest thing to teach the banker. It became later known as the ‘smiling assassin’ smile, ostensibly because he smiled when firing hundreds of his staff.

It was during this time when Mayall faced-off Death, with the help of Dumbledore and Gandalf, that Merrill Lynch’s financial trading deals started to unravel. The bank blamed the Russian debt default of August 1998, as a result of the Asian financial contagion, but the real problem was Key’s charms failed during that crucial five day period when Mayall was in a coma. When word got out some months later that his nickname was the smiling assassin, Key said it just because he had smiled while he fired hundreds of staff and was the “last London manager standing.”

Since Rik Mayall died properly this time on June 9 2014, most of John Key’s powers have gone. The prime minister of Middle Earth, as New Zealand is also known, said the first to go are the attacking powers, and then eventually all the powers of defence. At interviews-end, Key performed a Reducio charm on himself with his kauri-wood Money Tree Wand, while holding onto a nearby door handle to his office. In a moment, Key shrank himself so small that he could stand on the door handle, and then he plunged and pulled himself into the keyhole and disappeared into the room.

Through his keyhole, he grumbled to be left alone because he needed to find another Dark Wizard to be his wizard blood donor. The parliamentary press gallery reporters that had gathered around and witnessed this interview appeared to be having a cognitive dissonance reaction, which commonly afflicts Muggles when they are confronted with information that conflicts with the darkly satirical news stories they are regularly fed by mainstream Muggle media outlets that the Dark Wizards control.

 

Wizards and Witches Wish for Mutiny

The Professor who provided the tip-off that Rik Mayall and John Key had a past together, Michael Hudson at the University of Missouri, said that many wizard and witches were preparing to whistle blow on the Dark Wizards and Witches that had enslaved the world in debt. The professor said, “what whistle blowers needed right now was the support of the public.” (He regards the term Muggles as derogatory).

Grizzly Gandalf: Great Wizard Gandalf was furious when he found out the Dark Wizard John Key had become Middle Earth’s political leader.

Grizzly Gandalf: Great Wizard Gandalf was furious when he found out the Dark Wizard John Key had become Middle Earth’s political leader.

Those Light-working Wizards and Witches, who have evidence to reveal, need to see a heightened interest in such power crimes from ordinary people.

Wizard Gandalf, who had once mentored Hudson, agreed saying, “My wish for Muggles and Hobbits all around the world is this: Be Revolting!”

===================

This satirical story is a tribute to Rik Mayall, a comic genius who inspired us all at Snoopman News to try to be funny everyday, even while we can’t forget that we are being fucked in arse by bankers, and mindful that too many vegged-out Muggles and Hobbits don’t know about the Dark Wizards to ‘give a shit’.

When Black Things Propel Us

The ‘Five Eyes’ mass surveillance spy network that NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden blew wide open, is in breach of the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948. Furthermore, the USA American-dominated propaganda media system fails to provide the necessary context regarding the most coveted secrets of the USA American-NATO-Transnational Corporate Empire. Our intrepid Editor-in-Chief Snoopman argues this failure is due in no small part because key insiders of the USA American Media Complex are actively complicit in constructing the necessary subterfuge to maintain the White House-Pentagon-NATO-Hollywood-Think Tank narrative that the NSA-led ‘Five Eyes’ global surveillance system is needed to catch terrorists. This narrative ignores another inconvenient truth, that the United States of America is the world’s leading terrorist-sponsoring state.

Calling Time: Snowden leaks revealed a totalitarian state infrastructure.

Calling Time: Snowden leaks reveal a totalitarian state infrastructure.

 

Sometimes, what comes in black propels us on

The Echelon global mass surveillance network, that is comprised of the ‘Five Eyes’ spy partners – the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand – poses a bona fide threat to the ideal of free and open societies. Thanks to US National Security Agency (NSA) whistle-blower Edward Snowden, the world has been able to learn that these five Anglo-Saxon countries have constructed an important technological component of a totalitarian system.

Indeed, the ‘Five Eyes’ spy network is in breach of the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948. Article 12 of this declaration, to which all Echelon ‘Five Eyes’ spy partners are signatories, states: “No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence…”

In response to this breach, Snoop Monster (pictured) grew three more eyes. This means as a grown-up monster of the genus, Monster Monster, Snoop Monster now has five eyes too. “Da better to snoop da powerful with”, said Snoop Monster.

Five-eyes Snoop: Snoop Monster grew three more eyes to "better ... snoop da powerful with".

Five-eyes Snoop: Snoop Monster grew three more eyes to “better … snoop da powerful with”.

To date, the news media has failed to highlight this breach to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Furthermore, this human rights provision was written as a protection for citizens against the fascism that had occurred under Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin.

Perhaps if it was by now common knowledge that IBM made the Nazi’s twelve year reign technically possible and more horrific than it would have otherwise been, the world would fully realize that an important technological component of fascism has been implemented. IBM not only supplied their computing machines and punch card systems to the Nazis, so that Jewish, gypsy and gay people could be efficiently rounded up, transported across Europe and worked to death. As Edwin Black proves compellingly in his book, IBM and the Holocaust, the solutions company also maintained its own leased machines, constantly redesigned the cards in full knowledge of their customers’ purposes, and collected on the profits, as per arrangement, after World War II and the Final Solution.

A major justification for the Five Eyes’ state spying apparatus is terrorism.

Yet, journalists such as John Pilger and Naomi Klein, along with US foreign policy critic Noam Chomsky, have shown that the US-NATO alliance has routinely conducted acts of terror since World War II. These Black Operations, as they are called, were often conducted to topple democratic socialist governments. Indeed, Eugene Jarecki’s Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize-winning documentary Why We Fight compellingly shows that America fights wars to make the world secure for its corporations.

As it is clear that these five ‘Western’ powers have constructed a totalitarian system by stealth, it is critical that their breaches of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights are confronted before democratic institutions are stripped of their vital functionality.

It is also crucial that we defend our minds from the psychological warfare (or Psy-Ops) emanating from the White House-Pentagon-CIA-NSA-Wall Street-Hollywood-News Propaganda-Think Tank Complex. Because just six US-based global media conglomerates – Time Warner, Disney, NewsCorp, NBC Universal, CBS and Viacom – dominate the USA America propaganda media system – they are able to present a relentless barrage of subterfuge as black and white truth, with near-impunity. While the US news media has been critical of the US government in regard to NSA mass surveillance, they are yet to provide the broader context that is touched upon here.

Embattled White Sheople: Stop bleating, conforming, and supporting war activism. Snoop Monster wants you to join the peace-loving, creative, tenacious Black Sheople.

Embattled White Sheople: Stop bleating, conforming, and supporting war activism. Snoop Monster wants you to join the peace-loving, creative, tenacious Black Sheople.

So, Snoop Monster implores you to face the black inky lies of the USA American dominated propaganda media complex. He cajoles, prods and goads you to join the rebellion, whether it be: as ‘paradigm warriors’ making formal objections to institutions; creatively demonstrating on the streets; or by screening stonking documentaries on sports club ceilings, town hall walls and church, chapel and cathedral altars.

Grand Chessboard: A Game the Whole Brzezinski family can play! MSNBC TV news anchor plays her ‘Go to Ukraine’ Card.

When MSNBC TV news anchor Mika Brzezinski attempted to cross to the Ukraine on Monday March 24, she was blocked by her male co-host and she became visibly irritated. Social commentary website, Upworthy, posted the video clip as an example of men bullying women. But, is Brzezinski’s appeal to cover “the facts” genuine? Snoopman sketches the career backgrounds of Mika Brzezinski’s father, Zbigniew, and her brother, Mark, and he reveals the MSNBC news host is not as neutral as she makes out.

WAIT A SECOND! Subsequent to this testy on-air exchange, female news anchor Mika Brzezinski has been cast as a victim of male bullying. But is Brzezinski an actor for more powerful bullies?

WAIT A SECOND! Subsequent to this testy on-air exchange, female news anchor Mika Brzezinski has been cast as a victim of male bullying. But is Brzezinski an actor for more powerful bullies?

Daughter of One of the World’s Leading Psychopaths Bullied as She Tries to Anchor ‘the News’ with ‘Facts’ on Major US Network

By Snoopman, 1 April 2014

MSNBC TV news anchor Mika Brzezinski tried live-on-air to cross to coverage in the Ukraine, but was blocked by her condescending male co-host on Monday March 24. The rude co-host of MSNBC‘s “Morning Joe” news program, Joe Scarborough, wanted to keep going with a discussion about the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370.

Visibly irritated, Brzezinski blurted that they needed to cover “the facts”, rather than “theories” about what happened to the missing Malaysian Airlines’ plane, which she regarded as a cheap way to gain high viewer ratings.

Since the testy on-air exchange took place, the social commentary website, Upworthy, has spread the video clip, arguing it is another example of males bullying females. In the clip, Brzezinski seems to take ‘the news’ seriously. But, is there more to it than that?

Who is Mika Brzezinski?

In the scheme of things, the disappearance of Flight 370 has been a huge distraction from ‘big picture’ news. So, Mika Brzezinski should be commended for wanting to ‘go to Ukraine’, right?

MOCKING THE MEDIA COMPLEX: Comedian Russell Brand feigned reading the news as a way to highlight the trivialization major issues by the news media.

MOCKING THE MEDIA COMPLEX: Comedian Russell Brand feigned reading the news as a way to highlight the trivialization major issues by the news media.

Well, recall that Russell Brand showed Mika Brzezinski and her colleagues up for being rude, frivolous eggs when he appeared on MSNBC in mid-2013. So, why is Mika Brzezinski so passionate about covering the Ukraine? To understand that, we sketch her father’s work biography and her brother’s connection to a now-defunct think-tank that needs to be a household name: The Project for a New American Century.

Brzezinski was born in New York City, AKA Gotham, the daughter of Polish-born foreign policy expert and former US National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski; himself the son of a displaced aristocratic Pole (according to Peter Dale Scott in his book, Road to 9/11). Mika’s father wrote a book called The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy And It’s Geostrategic Imperatives (1997), in which he argued that regional powers needed to be countered so that none became a world power that could challenge the United States of America. This includes Russia and China; two regional powers on the Eurasian landmass that the US-led NATO has been rapidly encircling since 9/11 (as Eugene Jarecki shows in his documentary, Why We Fight).

FAMILY TIES: Zbigniew Brzezinski interviewed on the MSNBC news programme that his daughter, Mika, co-hosts.

FAMILY TIES: Zbigniew Brzezinski interviewed on the MSNBC news programme that his daughter, Mika, co-hosts.

Zbigniew wrote in The Grand Chessboard that because the US was a more multi-cultural popular democracy than it had been at the time of the Japanese Empire’s attack on Pearl Harbor, it had become more “difficult to fashion a consensus on foreign policy issues, except in the circumstance of a truly massive and widely perceived direct external threat.” (p. 211). By ‘consensus’, Mika’s father was talking about the projection of US military power without its government losing legitimacy to rule.

GRAND PLOT: Brzezinski’s strategy for continued US domination of the World Chessboard.

GRAND PLOT: Brzezinski’s strategy for continued US domination of the World Chessboard.

Furthermore, Zbigniew is a long-time associate of another former US National Security Advisor, Henry Kissinger, who supported the CIA-backed coup of Chile on September 11 1973. Both are life-long friends of David Rockefeller Sr., a key American oligarch at the centre of a blueprint to transform the world called the “1980s Project”, as Laurence Shoup and William Minter argued its purpose was in their book, Imperial Brain Trust. This project, first formulated between 1971-1973 at a New York-based think-tank, the Council on Foreign Relations, planned the spread of ‘free markets’ through the application of a ‘Shock Doctrine’.

As free-thinking journalist Naomi Klein shows in her meticulously researched book, The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism, highly networked key insiders across the state-corporate-academic-think-tank nexus coerce governments through financial, economic and military warfare, to force them to submit to the rule of what has been identified as a Transnational Capitalist Class. Armies of corporate professionals, sponsored politicians and elite technocrats are working on what is essentially a global neo-colonial project (AKA globalization), which is an economic war framework directed by the super-rich. A corporatized totalitarianism is driving the construction of a worldwide technocratic system, as Snoopman News reported in an article called, Code Purple: Whistle Blowing on ‘Free markets’, the ‘Shock Doctrine’ and ‘New Constitutionalism’. A technocracy is an economic system that exploits technology as a means of social control through the allocation of energy and resources rather than the market price system of cartelized monopoly capitalism. The construction of this global superstructure was embedded into the “1980’s Project”.

CHANGE YOU CAN BELIEVE IN: After arming and training the Mujahideen in modes of terrorism in 1979, giving foreign policy ‘advice’ in Pakistan in 1980 (see picture), in a covert strategy to antagonize the Russians to invade Afghanistan, Zbigniew Brzezinski later became a foreign policy advisor to President Barack Hussein Obama.

CHANGE YOU CAN BELIEVE IN: After arming and training the Mujahideen in modes of terrorism in 1979, giving foreign policy ‘advice’ in Pakistan in 1980 (see picture), in a covert strategy to antagonize the Russians to invade Afghanistan, Zbigniew Brzezinski later became a foreign policy advisor to President Barack Hussein Obama.

You can bet Mika Brzezinski has not revealed her father’s association with the Mujahideen in Afghanistan, either. Zbigniew endorsed President Carter’s directive to supply arms to the Mujahideen, and train them in terrorism tactics, as a covert strategy to draw the Soviet Union into Afghanistan, and embroil the communist state in a long, un-winnable ‘Vietnam’ type conflict that would make Moscow look bad, and economically weaken the USSR. Indeed, in 1979 Zbigniew gained the confidence of his intended pawns on the Grand Chessboard when he met with Mujahideen ‘freedom-fighters’ and said, with the help of a translator, as he pointed to the hills: “That land over there is yours. You’ll go back to it one day because your fight will prevail and you’ll have your homes and your mosques back again. Because your cause is right and God is on your side”.

In a 1998 interview with French magazine Le Nouvel Observateur, Brzezinski defended his decision to arm and train the Mujahideen in techniques of terrorism saying the significance of , “[s]ome stirred-up Moslems” was inconsequential to “the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the cold war”. Functional psychopaths such as Zbigniew enjoy successful careers, augmenting power and accumulating wealth by gaining the confidence of their intended victims. Zbigniew, like all psychopaths, has no need to admit his criminal responsibility for the genocide he has caused, because of the propagandist role the world’s major media outlets play to support such well-mannered monsters.

US FOREIGN POLICY ADVICE IN THE KYBER PASS: Brzezinski manhandles a machine gun at a Pakistan Army outpost after having armed the “stirred-up Moslems” who comprised the Mujahideen (February 3, 1980).

US FOREIGN POLICY ADVICE IN THE KYBER PASS: Brzezinski manhandles a machine gun at a Pakistan Army outpost after having armed the “stirred-up Moslems” who comprised the Mujahideen (February 3, 1980).

The MSNBC news program, Morning Joe hosted a live link with Zbigniew Brzezinski in late February 2014 on the ‘Ukraine issue’. (Snoopman News notes that the Anglo-American dominated Global Media Complex only focus on far-flung places when conflict arises over the Anglo-American Brotherhood’s perceived right to rule the jurisdiction in question). In the biased MSNBC interview, the United States was presumed as ‘good’, and cast Zbigniew Brzezinski as a tolerant paternal figure over the nation through ideological rarefication, whereby Mika was remembered as a misbehaving, but adorable child. (Cue political actor cast in the ideologically-infused role of a ‘nation as person’ hero with expert brain powers). With this ridiculous attempt at repartee between Scarborough and the Brzezinskis before the interview began, it was not surprising then that the line of questioning was focused on what Russia needed to do to behave. In Zbigniew’s worldview, a behaving Russia means helping Ukraine maintain its ‘independence’, so that it could eventually be absorbed by the European Union. Thus, as master propagandists, the personalized vignette of a tolerant father figure to introduce Zbigniew was used to subtly link ‘Morning Joe’s ‘hard to get’ busy guest as a patient patriarch figure of the nation (actually an empire), at that particular Bat Time on that particular Bat Channel.

Where technocrats like Zbigniew lack a ‘gift of the gab’ to pull off being funny in public, the American Brotherhood has relied on presidents to deploy witty lines as a form of ‘crowd control’ (as rapper KRS One worded this form of population indoctrination in the documentary The Obama Deception). By ‘crowd control’, KRS One meant that the mass populace of USA America was tricked into voting for Obama instead of opting for mutiny following the global financial crisis, that was engineered mainly by bankers in Gotham and its fraternal dark twin, the City of London). USA America’s technocrats, such as Zbigniew Brzezinski are masters of propagandist techniques. Zbigniew’s role in the elite and mass media is essentially a ‘mission to persuade’. His rhetoric relies on misinformation, confusion and ignorance. Thus, Zbigniew’s February 2014 MSNBC interview was laced with Orwellian doublethink.

ORWELLIAN DOUBLETHINK: In his paternal ‘nation as person’ role, Zbigniew Brzezinski deploys his expert brain powers for a ‘noble cause’, while also slyly endorsing the permanent war economy.

ORWELLIAN DOUBLETHINK: In his paternal ‘nation as person’ role, Zbigniew Brzezinski deploys his expert brain powers for a ‘noble cause’, while also slyly endorsing the permanent war economy

As readers familiar with George Orwell’s dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-four will recall, doublethink is defined as “the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them” (1993 [1949]: 223). This brainwashing provides the capacity to dispense with unwelcome truths by forgetting them, yet being able to recall them when convenient and deliberately deceive others while maintaining an inner conviction that the choices are right. Brzezinski is committed to the idea of larger and larger political units being formed out of conflicts, like the three super-states described in Nineteen Eighty-four, because he is in the orbit of the American Rockefeller banking and oil dynasty. Zbigniew Brzezinski has been long-associated with the global policy-shaping groups, such as the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission and the Bilderberg Group, that seek a one-world invisible government endgame (as numerous investigators have found). These investigations include: Daniel Estulin’s The True Story of the Bilderberg Group; James Perloff’s The Shadows of Power; Laurence Shoup and William Minter’s Imperial Brain Trust; William Engdahl’s A Century of War: Anglo-American Oil Politics and the New World Order; Michel Chossudovsky’s The Globalization of Poverty and the New World Order; and Jason Bermas’ Invisible Empire: A New World Order Defined.

Since Zbigniew Brzezinski was purporting to support the idea of a self-governing state, while at the same outlining the goal that Ukraine join the European Union, a much larger political-economic unit, Zbigniew was able to subtly slip his illogical argument into the live-to-air interview, without any of the anchors and guest journalists and (off-screen) producers battering an elite eyelid. Here, Zbigniew proposed the opposing propositions, not because he is stupid. Rather, as a consummate propagandist, he made himself appear to support the idea of an autonomous state on the one hand, in order distract the audience that the other hand was ‘gloved’. This ‘gloved hand’ concealed the objective of having Ukraine absorbed into the Transnational Capitalist Class-controlled European Union, because this would have revealed intentionality. This deception was necessary in order to hide the inherent fascism underpinning the Transnational Capitalist Class’ deep-state operations to destabilize Ukraine, as they have done the world-over, in accordance with the ‘Shock Doctrine’.

SHOCK TREATMENTS: Military violence, economic warfare and propaganda are required to spread the ‘economic medicine’ of ‘free markets’.

SHOCK TREATMENTS: Military violence, economic warfare and propaganda are required to spread the ‘economic medicine’ of ‘free markets’.

Perhaps Joe Scarborough sighed and shut-down his female co-host because he saw her agenda to promote her father’s and the Obama administration’s foreign policy aims. This is not to say that ‘Morning Joe’ and the all male cast of guests were unbiased and had the grace of the Dalai Lama in Hearts. Far from it. Scarborough may have blocked his co-anchor because of the subtext detectable in Mika’s brain. After all, Mika Brzezinski didn’t say, “We need to ‘go to Ukraine’ because Zbigniew Brzezinski. Because father. Because American-Ukrainian Advisory Committee. Because was chairman.” Indeed, Mika’s dad is a key insider of the Transnational Capitalist Class. The American-Ukrainian Advisory Committee is a private group that at one time was headed by key insiders such as Zbigniew Brzezinski, Henry Kissinger, Frank Carlucci, George Soros and Malcolm Forbes. They urged President William Jefferson Clinton to promote Ukrainian energy independence from Russia, in 1994 (following the Wall Street-Washington Complex-engineered break-up of the Soviet Union, in accordance with the ‘Shock Doctrine’ that Naomi Klein reported). The collapse of the Soviet Empire was a gain for the US-dominated Transnational Corporate Empire. Ordinary people bore the brunt of the economic devastation that ensued.

Despite the extraordinary help from a propagandist media system, the 1980s Project that Brzezinski helped ‘captain’ for several decades, needed constant homework. Indeed, the cliche that governments and transnational corporations are solely focused only short term goals like voter popularity and quarterly profits, respectively, shrinks to a myth when we contemplate the picture of Zbigniew Brzezinski & Co. urging Clinton to promote Ukrainian energy independence from Russia, in 1994, (following the break-up of the Soviet Union, engineered by bankers from Gotham City and technocrats from Washington). They did not stop there. Numerous government institutions and oligarch-funded foundations in the United States have supported a strategy to destabilize the Ukrainian government for a number of years, with $5 billion in tax-funding for “democracy building” projects. Among the foundations that provided this support were Freedom House, whose Board of Trustees includes Zbigniew.

Zbigniew’s daughter, Mika, is able to routinely omit key evidence regarding her father’s background of covert operations partly because the American media system is propagandist by design. Because, as one of America’s leading US foreign policy critics, linguist Noam Chomsky has argued, in societies with formal democracy, a propagandist system of communication is required because the state cannot openly intimidate and suppress ‘free’ populations without losing the legitimacy to rule. Therefore, the on-air testiness reveals a vignette into differences of opinion about how to best buttress oligarchic-elite power, whether by distracting the audience with the spectacle of a missing jetliner, or seeking the fabled American peoples’ acquiescence to US intervention in a far-flung place, by drawing the ‘Go to Ukraine’ playing card that Mika had kept close to her chest.

Mika’s brother Mark also has intriguing connections. He is a foreign policy expert and is the US Ambassador to Sweden. He was a member of the Project for a New American Century (PNAC), a now-defunct Washington-based think-tank that argued the United States risked losing its sole super-power status if it was not seen to be fighting two major wars at once. PNAC members called for a ‘revolution in military affairs’, or the reconfiguration of American forces into smaller more mobile units, capable of exploiting new war-fighting technologies. In a paper titled “Rebuilding America’s Defences”, this revolution, wrote the authors in September 2000, would take a long time, “absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor” (p.51). This transformation of the military conformed to the concurrent US military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff doctrine, ‘Full Spectrum Dominance’, that set a goal for the United States to dominate the world, whether on land, sea, air, space and cyberspace, by the year 2020, permanently.

PNAC members included many Washington technocrats that soon became members of President George Walker Bush’s administration: Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Bremmer, and Robert Zoellick. The sub-terrain connections of many PNAC members to what is known as the ‘deep state’, are revealed in a brilliantly researched book, Another Nineteen: Investigating 9/11 Suspects. The term deep state refers to oligarchs, or the rich and super-rich, who use covert means to advance their interests, with the help of a ‘Fraternity’, as Charles Higham called the criminal network from a prior era in his book, Trading with the Enemy: The Nazi-American Money Plot 1933-1949. The author of Another Nineteen , Kevin Ryan, presents a more likely list of top suspects that fit the picture of a far more realistic 9/11 narrative than the ridiculously over-simplified official story. Ryan shows that key insiders, holding top posts in the US state apparatus had the means, motive and histories of deep state activity to organize a coup d’état with key insiders from the US corporate world, along with vital help from the Saudi and Pakistani regimes. Al Qaeda operatives served as the gullible patsies. The immediate cover-up of the terror attacks that began on September 11 2011, together with the official account of 9/11, read like deep state criminal satirists scripted them. Those dark satirists are likely to be Ryan’s 9/11 suspects. When we recall that the CIA-backed Mujahideen was the predecessor to Al Qaeda, we begin to see the traces of a deep state network still at-large.

The deep-state network has a long history. When we recall that Zbigniew mentioned in his book The Grand Chessboard that it had become much harder to gain support for American military interventions abroad than at the time of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, because ‘the American people’ were more multicultural in composition, we catch a glimpse into how deep state actors think.

Indeed, the operation of a deep state criminal network was behind the plot to antagonize the Japanese to attack Pearl Harbor, as Robert Stinnett shows compellingly in his book, Day of Deceit: The Truth about FDR and Pearl Harbor. A secret inner circle around president Roosevelt had conspired with the British and Dutch governments to cut off crucial supplies of oil, steel and aviation lubricants to Japan. This strategy, embarked upon in early 1941 after US military code-breakers successfully deciphered Japanese diplomatic and military encrypted communications in December 1940, was intended to draw the United States into another global war.

Is it really plausible, then, that Washington’s technocratic psychopaths, such as Zbigniew Brzezinski, with decades of top security and political access, don’t know that Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s secret inner circle not only provoked the Imperial Government of Japan to attack Pearl Harbor, but also don’t know that FDR’s plotters were tracking the progress of the Japanese attack fleet with a precision that makes the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 embarrassing? After all, the evil genius Winston Churchill, no less, spells it out in Volume III of his epic series, The Second World War: The Grand Alliance (p.470). (Lest the reader feel we are falsely maligning Winston Churchill’s still favourable reputation, a stature propped up by a first-rate Anglo-American propaganda media system, we point to G. Edward Griffin’s book, The Creature from Jekyll Island; William Engdahl’s books, A Century of War and Gods of Money; and Guido Giacomo Preparata’s book, Conjuring Hitler).

Mika Brzezinski, a Media Sock Muppet with Dark Family Secrets

LIFE BETWEEN TELE-PROMPTS: MSNBC’s media sock muppets have little in common, except an awkwardness about what to do with their hands when they have no scripts to tell them what to say.

LIFE BETWEEN TELE-PROMPTS: MSNBC’s media sock muppets have little in common, except an awkwardness about what to do with their hands when they have no scripts to tell them what to say.

So, Mika Brzezinski’s day job at MSNBC is about over-simplifying ‘the facts’ of ‘the news’. That is, unless you think it’s plausible that Mika has not read her father’s most well-known book, and has no idea what the psychopathic bullying males in her family get up to.

Indeed, Mika’s father wrote in The Grand Chessboard that part of America’s success, as a hegemonic power, is the domination of its media system over the world. It is this media system that creates a positive image for the United States, through ideologically-infused news stories, frivolous television programs, and propagandist Hollywood movies that sanitize America’s history. As Zbigniew helpfully explains, its this positive image that the United States enjoys (even after a dozen years of the unfinished ‘global war on terror’), that reduces the expense, resources and complications that would otherwise compound if the American-led Transnational Corporate Empire, as we call it at Snoopman News, needed a military presence in every jurisdiction of the world.

So, when MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski says she wants to ‘go to Ukraine’, she’s not talking about covering this big picture issue critically. (Such critical accounts can be read on GlobalResearch.ca, a Canadian news and current affairs website which hosts thousands of free-thinking academic, activist, ex-government, media, and professional writers). Mika is working within a highly sophisticated propaganda media system, or Global Media Complex dominated by just seven transnational media corporations of which six are American based: Time Warner, Disney, NewsCorp, NBC Universal, CBS and Viacom.

Even a television news channel with Russia in it’s name, Russia Today (RT) can air stories with voices in it that are capable of pointing out Russian president Vladimir Putin’s role in genocide, while at the same time recalling the genocide of the United States, the United Kingdom and the European Union’s best friend, NATO.

But, not on “Morning Joe”. Therefore, Mika Brzezinski is a media missionary propaganda model working for the Global Media Complex to support the permanent war economy and the construction of a new world technocratic order.

Mika Brzezinski’s ‘earnest’ work is TO BE CONTINUED…

Detecting ‘free market’ era ‘thoughtcrimes’

Today, ‘free markets’ are still promoted with a positive image by many of the world’s major media outlets, prestigious business schools and dominant governments. This promotion continues despite the fact that the world’s richest people have accumulated vast fortunes, at a time when the majority of people are burdened with economic poverty. For example, in their “Wealth Report 2012,” Knight Frank and Citi Private Bank found that the world’s richest minority population, with a net worth of $100 million or more, called centa-millionaires, numbered 63,000 and possessed $39.9 trillion in wealth.[1] They come in various pigmentations. Mostly, they are white, male and bald, and were last seen leaving posh restaurants everywhere.

A rich, bald mans’ world: 63,000 centa-millionaires possess $40 trilllion in wealth, while 800 million people starve.

A rich, bald mans’ world: 63,000 centa-millionaires possess $40 trilllion in wealth, while 800 million people starve.

Amid this opulence, Raj Patel showed in Stuffed and Starved that there are 800 million starving people, partly because they are so poor.[2] But, mostly malnutrition and starvation continues unabated because the world food system is controlled by transnationalized cartels of corporations that dominate food production, distribution, marketing and its finance. This fact alone ought to alert to us that through capitalism’s 950-year history,[3] people have been steadily dispossessed of land and, therefore, stripped of the capacity to maintain their own economic systems.

In present era of transnational capitalism, the ‘free-market’ economic model is often associated with ‘free trade’ agreements between countries or groups of nations, innovative solutions and more consumer choice.

News stories typically emphasize that ‘free markets’ reduce red-coloured tape. This depiction works as a short-hand to signal that ‘evil’ communist tendencies of excessive, expensive and inefficient bureaucracy have been overcome. The world’s major media outlets also regularly air or publish stories that valourize technological breakthroughs engineered by teams of happily eager, professional geniuses. Such glowing treatments essentially market the developments of ‘the market economy’ with no cost to the corporations featured. Additionally, news anchors almost audibly breathe a collective sigh of relief that there is no need to put up with the scratchy old film and washed-out glitchy video-tape days, when autocratic states dictated how public enterprises should mass produce the same single product line over many shivery cold decades, for everyone.

In light of the sarcastic twist that this article has just been given, would you still expect that ‘free markets’ and the key insiders and institutions that favour them, to really deserve positive reputations? To answer this question, we need to journey back to the field-testing stage of ‘free markets’ to reveal the core, unacknowledged ‘thoughtcrimes’ that underpin the ideology that was used to promote this ‘economic’ framework: neoliberalism.

To make sense of the phenomena that we will likely encounter on this journey, which will start in the olden days of the mid-1960s to the mid-1970s, we need to pack a dictionary.

Room 101: At the end of Nineteen Eighty-four, George Orwell provides additional explanation of the workings of his dystopian world and a dictionary for the new official cleansed language, Newspeak. These appendices are best read first.

Room 101: At the end of Nineteen Eighty-four, George Orwell provides additional explanation of the workings of his dystopian world and a dictionary for the new official cleansed language, Newspeak. These appendices are best read first.

The word thoughtcrime is familiar to old-fashioned people who still read books and in this case, novelist George Orwell’s 1949 book, Nineteen Eighty-Four.[4] The novel is set in the dystopian world of Airstrip One (formerly England), which is a province of Oceania, one of three super-states. In Oceania, a thoughtcrime is the criminal act of holding unspoken beliefs or doubts that oppose or question the Party, which is a totalitarian group that controls the political, economic and cultural resources of the super-state on behalf of unseen oligarchs. In today’s ‘free market’ era, ‘thoughtcrimes’ are rising despite efforts in thought control, conscious or otherwise, by missionaries of the global media.

Scholars and independent-minded journalists (or ‘thought criminals’) who are critical of the cover story used to market ‘free markets’ have identified its underlying ideological construct, called neoliberalism. As a packaged set of claims, neoliberal ideology differed from its former incarnation, liberalism in one major respect. Exponents of liberalism in the coal-smoke filled days of the nineteenth century promoted the idea that individuals were inherently good, while maintaining a negative view of society, and claimed musket and canon-weilding states were even worse, because they existed to coerce individuals, communities and institutions.[5]

While neoliberalism reinvigorated these beliefs in the exhaust-fume days in the late 1970s (and throughout the 1980s), it did so with a woeful depiction of how the Welfare State had become an unbearable financial burden on societies all over the world.[6] Ostensibly, the Welfare State had been instituted as a necessity to relieve the deprivation wrought upon societies by the wealthy by means of the Great Depression. In the United States, it worked as a way to formally consolidate a citizenry of state citizens into one political unit, as federalized American citizens, through the Social Security System.[7]

Of course, the key insiders behind the promotion of neoliberalism did not reveal that this prior episode of economic warfare was the result of an orchestrated financial boom in the 1920s. If it had become widely known that key Wall Street and London banks had pursued a callous strategy to consolidate their banking and industrial holdings following the inevitable bursting of the financial bubble in 1929, people would have questioned how numerous financial crises since 1970 had really occurred. [8]

Time-travelling to the black hole the Global Media Complex are too scared to investigate

Which one of these things isn’t quite like the others? Counter-clockwise: Star Trek‘s tele-transportation portal; Dr. Who‘s Tardis; an old school time machine in The Time Machine; or, George Orwell’s novel Nineteen Eighty-four?

Which one of these things isn’t quite like the others? Counter-clockwise: Star Trek‘s tele-transportation portal; Dr. Who’s Tardis; an old school time machine in The Time Machine; or, George Orwell’s novel Nineteen Eighty-four?

The truth is, the world’s major news outlets, or the Global Media Complex, will not explore the ‘black hole’ mentioned in the ‘directions for use’ above. They will not even take the perilous journey involving time-travel, even though the swish gadgetry distracts the mind from the danger. Even if they had space physicists to call upon, the major media outlets still would not investigate this black hole. Our imaginary space physicists have called this black hole the Great Milky Way Memory Hole and have determined it is comprised of dense historical context plasma.

To help manufacture consent, Planet Earth’s public was sold the made-for-media catch-phrase – the ‘trickle-down effect.’ This wryly encoded promise – that the benefits would materialize for the world’s public – was predicated on the notion that the rich were needed in order for societies to prosper. Thus, some of the wealth of the rich – under the proposed ‘free-market reforms’ or ‘shock treatments’ – would ‘trickle down’ to society at-large.

As with dripping taps, the amount and interval would be regulated by the market’s ‘Invisible Hand’, which was a euphemism for an oligarchy and their army of unseen professionals, who have constructed a Worldwide Financial-secrecy Haven Complex. Oligarchs are super-rich people who use their enormous wealth to influence the politics of society.[9] At the superficial level, news outlets manufactured the idea that in a ‘free market’ system, where government intervention was prevented, the Invisible Hand would price goods and services efficiently through rigorous competition.

Caught blue-handed! An Invisible Hand captured by infra-green photography renders the ‘shadow-selves’ of the transnational capitalist class invisible.

Caught blue-handed! An Invisible Hand, captured by infra-green photography, renders the ‘shadow-selves’ of the transnational capitalist class invisible.

However, a highly-networked North Atlantic capitalist class used private political mechanisms to ensure that wealth accumulated upward, so that there was only just enough income trickling-down to avert rebellion. Meanwhile, fees for ‘public’ services increased, even as the universal tax system remained in place.

As such, this article’s title, ‘Code Purple’, signals an emergency. Since the mid-1970s, the North Atlantic capitalist class (now transnational in scope) has pursued a global neo-colonial project, by stealth. Under this project, ‘free markets’ were promoted with propaganda that promised freedom and prosperity for all. As numerous investigators have shown, such as Alistair Barry (1996);[10] Bryan Bruce (2013);[11] Michel Chossudovsky (2003);[12] Steve Edwards (2012);[13] Jane Kelsey (1997);[14] Naomi Klein (2007);[15] and Michael Rowbotham (1998);[16] neither of these promises have eventuated. The intention of the super-rich all along was to increase their wealth and power, and, in the process, address a number of crises that emerged in the late 1960s.

One major crisis was a crisis of declining profits rates for transnational corporations.[17] A second major crisis was the ‘counter-cultural revolution’ that appeared in the 1960s.[18] A third major crisis occurred at this time when the perpetually ‘developing’ countries demanded Western technology so they could ‘develop’, as a ‘fair trade’ for having supplied the raw materials for the ‘long post-war boom’.[19] The North Atlantic capitalist class regarded these last two crises as an affront to their perceived right to permanently rule the planet.[20]

The Shock Doctrine

The North Atlantic capitalist class embarked on a ‘war of position’, as William Carroll reported in his book, The Making of a Transnational Capital Class.[21] To ensure they won this ‘war of position’, or an ideological ‘battle of ideas’,[22] the neoliberal movement followed a stratagem espoused by the sect’s leading proponent Milton Friedman, a professor of Economics at the University of Chicago. Friedman favoured a ‘shock therapy’ approach, as encapsulated by his mantra: “speed, suddenness and scope”.[23]

‘Free market shock treatments’ included lifting financial controls to increase the fluidity of capital flows between countries, the corporatization and privatization of state infrastructure and services, the introduction of user charges, shifting the tax burden ‘downward’, and down-sizing public sector employment.[24] Targeted populations were overwhelmed with the economic shocks as whole sectors of society were transformed and coerced to support the new framework. In this way, a structured set of ‘new enclosures’ were designed to absorb the needs, values and aspirations of pesky, disobedient, ordinary mortals.

The Shock Doctrine is the denied part of the global neo-colonial project. During the field-testing stage of ‘free markets’ in the mid-1960s to mid-1970s, US-backed terrorism was required to clear opposition for the ‘free market economic shock treatments’ that followed. Five countries – Brazil, Indonesia, Chile, Uruguay and Argentina – pursued a developmentalist economic framework and were all subjected to military juntas and/or CIA-backed coups.[25] The free market economic shock therapies were themselves mechanisms of coercion, because all sectors of society were thrown into crisis. Everyone suffered, except key insiders, who became richer and accumulated more political power.

Shock Treatments: Embedded in the ‘free market’ economic framework is the exploitation of “speed, suddenness and scope”.

Shock Treatments: Embedded in the ‘free market’ economic framework is the exploitation of “speed, suddenness and scope”.

Beginning in the early 1970s, a blueprint to transform the world with a ‘free market’ framework called the ’1980s Project’ included stratagems to undermine democracy and the counter-cultural movements that emerged in the 60s.[26] Elite planners resolved to encourage political apathy, as ‘governance crisis’ literature of this period makes evident.[27] From their perspective, there was a ‘Crisis of Democracy’ because there was too much participation from ‘below’. The 1980s Project, which was sponsored by a New York-based global policy shaping think tank, the Council on Foreign Relations, sought to preserve as far as possible the dominance of a Trilateral World, which was the United States, Europe and Japan.

Forty years on, so-called ‘free and open societies’ typically have a ‘Look, Don’t Touch’ democracy, wherein systemic political apathy has taken root. As is made clear in Naomi Klein’s book, The Shock Doctrine (2007); in Noam Chomsky’s book Failed States (2006);[28] and Eugene Jarecki’s documentary Why We Fight (2006),[29] the United States continues to use military violence, or terrorism, to deliver the ‘freedom’ of ‘free markets.’ This situation has been sustained by excellent satirist-generated propaganda posing as news (reproduced by the Global Media Complex), which keeps a significant fraction of the population confused, misinformed and naïve, while conditioning them to believe they are well-informed.

Ignorance is Strength? Global Media Missionaries valourize distraction as a virtue.

Disturbingly, American journalist Chris Hedges has reported a corporate totalitarian core that thrives inside a fictitious democratic shell.[30] This core yields an inverted totalitarian state that few recognize because it does not look like the Orwellian world of Nineteen Eighty-four. This corporate totalitarian core is spreading outward from America. In essence, a corporatized totalitarianism is driving the construction of a worldwide technocratic system.[31]

A technocracy is an economic system that exploits technology as a means of social control through the allocation of energy and resources rather than the market price system of cartelized monopoly capitalism.[32] The construction of this global superstructure was embedded into the “1980’s Project”.

Exponents of free markets disparaged the Welfare State as centralized planning, with obvious reference to communist states. Meanwhile, the 1980’s Project Blueprint for ‘free markets’ simply re-versioned trade-quotas with new technocratic parameters driven by cartels of transnational banking, industrial and communications corporations.

Financial crises were used by a global banking cartel as ‘change mechanisms’ to coerce governments to implement these re-versioned trade quota systems under the auspices of ‘free markets’.[33] This highly centralized form of coercion, known as ‘speed politics’, had the intention of overwhelming the resistance of nation state populaces, while accelerating the implementation of technologies to build the new world technocratic order. In other words, financial discipline was embedded into the new technocratic systems to ensure entrenchment of vast cartelized transnational corporations and the permanent supremacy of a transnational capitalist class.[34]

‘Royalizing’ commercial sovereignty

To ensure the durability of the global neo-colonial project, elite planners used a strategy known as new constitutionalism, which was designed to lock-in changes and take them beyond the reach of indigenous and nation state immigrant-settler populations.[35] Under a new constitutionalism framework, nation state sovereignty is transformed into a commercialized form of sovereign rule-making that occurs in an international arena.[36] The intention is to favour the property rights of the super-rich, whose wealth is protected in a state-sponsored, worldwide Financial Secrecy Haven Complex.[37] Ironically, within such secret spaces, the politically and economically powerful can create shadow selves that exploit labyrinthine trusts, shell corporations and private banks. With jurisdictional protection constructed by the four major accountancy firms, and a myriad of conspiring law firms and major banks, the worldwide Financial Secrecy Haven Complex works as an effective super-weapon to wage global-scale economic warfare.

Because key insiders from the world’s major and significant governments are involved in this project to ‘royalize’ the transnational capitalist class, we cannot call the authorities for help. Hence, the term, ‘Code Purple’, since the colour purple signifies royalty. Where once cheesy over-simplified emergency red alerts were limited to children’s TV programs, in the likes of The Thunderbirds, since 9/11, elevated terror threats have become embedded in the American peoples’ consciousness through the use of televised colour-coded warnings. Such terror alerts mask the military violence used to spread ‘free markets’ by the world’s major and significant powers, including USA America.

Code Purple:  Cheesy colour-coded terror alerts like those seen on The Thunderbirds became commonplace on USA American TV news after 9/11.

Code Purple: Cheesy colour-coded terror alerts like those seen on The Thunderbirds became commonplace on USA American TV news after 9/11.

If it becomes common knowledge that key power institutions have been manufacturing consent for projects that have a hidden purpose, societies would rightly revolt against the authorities. Mutiny in public and private institutions has become necessary to ensure that key insiders who have conspired and colluded to gain more political power and economic wealth, respectively, are redeployed to those institutions most suited to their words, deeds and ethos: the prisons of the world’s Incarceration Complex.

It is also crucial that land reform occurs on a mass scale, because without the redistribution of vast tracts of land held by the minority super-rich populations or oligarchies, communities the world-over will lack the economic means to pursue politically decentralized, self-determining communities.[38] Mass land reform will require a global-scale, organic, peaceful revolution. As Jeffrey Winters observed while researching his book Oligarchy, oligarchs have been remarkably resilient over millennia to avert mass land reform.[39]

Why this revolution will not be televised

Code Purple Alert! Share the spirit of Vive la Revolution! far and wide ;-)

Code Purple Alert! Share the spirit of Vive la Revolution! far and wide ;-)

Don’t expect to catch-out reporters, news anchors and editors from the world’s major media outlets admitting that they had gotten it so wrong all along. That is, perhaps, until the revolution’s success has not simply become inevitable, but is accomplished. Stage one of the revolution I am writing about is the most crucial ever attempted outside human history.

It is the mutiny happening in small subtle ways in your mind. It is the rebellion against your conditioned world-view.

This revolution is one that will not be televised. Not simply because it is too private for the US National Security Agency to pry into. Rather, it is too dangerous to broadcast, lest others become curious, spontaneous and emboldened to rebel too.

The truth is, the world’s major news outlets fear the dark matter known to imaginary space physicists as historical context plasma.

The new missionaries of global capitalism also fear the idea of mass populaces opening their minds to new fun-loving creativity, gracious dignified community-building work and compassionate loving acts of rebellion. They are also uninterested in its promotion because the formative moments of such personal journeys are problematic to film for tele!

[22]Looking back on how the neoliberal rationalist paradigm came to be the dominant ideology of our time, BBC filmmaker Adam Curtis found in his 2007 documentary series, The Trap: Episode II, The Lonely Robot, that this ‘battle of ideas’ included the new language and thinking of a technocratic elite. Rationalism here means a methodological pattern of thought that is self-justifying, un-rooted to ethical considerations and which advocates efficiency based on a ready supply of answers that express no doubt (Saul, 1993). The regime of the neocolonial sect redefined workers as human resources and human capital that would perform to ‘numbers’ to fit with the ideology’s central demand: efficiency.

Belated ‘Scoop’

New Zealand’s leading daily newspaper, The New Zealand Herald, published a hand-written copy of Lorde’s censored Grammy Award speech on its front-page yesterday, February 14.

The New Zealand Herald is the first major news outlet in the world to publish the suppressed speech. But, The New Zealand Herald presented the story on the front-page as though the ‘national’ newspaper had the scoop that Lorde’s Grammy speech had been censored. (See: Grammy Speech Censored). The teaser line at the bottom invited readers to view the full speech “sent to The New Zealand Herald by Lorde”, while the accompanying article, “Queen Bee Stung” on page 2 implied that the newspaper had published the hand-written speech as soon as they confirmed it was genuine.

However, Snoopman News scooped the story “Clipping Queen Bee’s Wings: Lorde’s real Grammy speech suppressed” on February 6.

Lorde Censored: Behind the suppression of the Queen Bee's Grammy speech. See the Snoopman News scoop, published February 6.

Lorde Censored: Behind the suppression of the Queen Bee’s Grammy speech. See the Snoopman News‘ scoop, published February 6.

Snoopman News reported that Lorde shocked the Grammy audience with a lecture-like speech that was a scathing indictment of global capitalism. Lorde told the audience that the world was ruled by well-resourced, highly networked super-rich people who use their “outrageous fortunes” to employ “[a]rmies of professional, political, religious and military elites” to make the world secure for their power structures.

But, the apparent ‘live’ broadcast had a one-minute delay and was switched to a ‘rehearsal take’ that had been shot earlier when it became apparent that Lorde was not going to waste the opportunity to outline why the world needs to remove the planet’s ruling classes from power, by thanking people already listed on her album, Pure Heroine.

The Grammy studio had taken the precaution of shooting ‘rehearsal takes’ for all of the nominees, so that if any winners talked for too long or if their speeches or outfits revealed contents that breached its censorship rating, such embarrassing moments could be edited.

A typed copy of the censored speech was initially sourced from Lorde by Snoopman News after the singer-songwriter returned to her home economy, New Zealand, and realized there had been a media black-out. The story “Clipping Queen Bee’s Wings: Lorde’s real Grammy speech suppressed” went viral over the internet after Snoopman News published the scoop on February 6. The same day, Snoopman News also published a full transcript of the speech, complete with citations, that shows Lorde had backed her attack on the world’s rulers with solid research.

A video of Lorde delivering what was described as an “oratory nuclear-bomb shell” by the journalist that broke the story, Iggy Swind, initially kept getting taken down on You Tube, (and is currently going viral on the web). The video shows that at first the elite of the USA America music industry gathered at the Staples Center, a sports stadium, laughed, when Lorde said, “Thankyou everyone soo much for making this song explode because this world is mental.”

However, the video shows the mood quickly changed as the composed singer-songwriter continued unfazed, despite having just won two Grammy awards, Best Solo Pop Performance and Song of the Year, for her hit single ‘Royals’.

Royal Lecture: Ella Yelich-O'Connor A.K.A. Lorde educates  elites at the 56th Grammy Awards.

Royal Lecture: Ella Yelich-O’Connor A.K.A. Lorde educates USA America music industry elites at the 56th Grammy Awards.

“Planet Earth is run by psychopaths that hide behind slick marketing, ‘freedom’ propaganda and ‘economic growth’ rhetoric, while they construct a global system of corporatized totalitarianism”, said the singer-songwriter as she eyed the music industry audience.

Lorde told her captive and now quiet audience that a USA American journalist called Chris Hedges had recently reported that a corporate form of totalitarianism was responsible for what she said the news media was hiding: the rapid militarization of the planet to gain permanent dominance over the world.

To scoop, or not to scoop

Lorde had sent a copy of the Grammy speech to The New Zealand Herald before she scooped-up the two Grammies. The ‘national’ newspaper was meant to publish the speech if Lorde won and spoke what was really on her mental mind to the elite of the USA America music industry.

But, following the Grammy studio’s on-air censorship of Lorde’s speech, an “executive decision” was made at The New Zealand Herald to shelve the hand-written copy. Lorde’s speech evidently sat on top of a filing cabinet in the newsroom, where it languished for two and a half weeks.

So, in a way, The New Zealand Herald did have the scoop of Lorde’s censored Grammy speech. However, the speech, which was written with a purple eye-liner pencil, was published by The New Zealand Herald in response to a ‘Full Transcript’ copy that had also gone viral on the internet this week.

Filtering ‘the news’: The speech The New Zealand Herald left on top of a filing cabinet to gather dust.

Filtering ‘the news’: The speech The New Zealand Herald left on top of a filing cabinet to gather dust.

The scoop, “Clipping Queen Bees Wings: Lorde’s real Grammy speech suppressed”, by Snoopman News, and the accompanying ‘Full Transcript’ has drawn over 1,000,000 visitors to the up-start news outlet’s website since launching its Facebook page “Snoopman News” on Monday February 10. The story spread mostly via Facebook and has been re-posted on multiple blog-sites.

New Zealand Herald editor Shayne Currie said defensively, “We had to print Lorde’s censored speech because our shareholders started screaming at us down the phone saying ‘why didn’t you get this scoop?’ ” The newspapers’ investors had seen the ‘Full Transcript’ of Lorde’s suppressed Grammy speech on their Facebook news feeds and had lamented the lost advertising revenue and the forgone sales to the mediocre daily.

Currie said he got hot under the collar, not least because The New Zealand Herald never publishes the likes of Lorde’s speech, or other well-researched arguments, on its front-page. “That would give-away a ‘big-picture’ view of the private political system that uses economic means as its form of social control, capitalism”. (See: Grammy Speech Censored).

Usually investors are risk-averse to such exposures, but said Currie, “The Herald has been leaching readers because we’ve bent and stretched the boundaries of the mediocre so far, New Zealanders are realizing they can’t take anymore of our Holy ‘free market’ Crap”.

In a conference call with The New Zealand Herald‘s owners, Currie answered-back. “I said to the investors, “We didn’t print the hand-written speech at the time, because our news is driven by focused-group survey formulas, the regurgitation of corporate-biased syndicated feeds from other transnational news corporations, and press releases curried into something resembling stories to fulfill our end of the low-level bribes we receive from PR companies on a daily basis,” Currie proudly confided.

At this point in the interview, Currie misread my surprise that he was being so candid, for a social-media era ‘Like’ that he had been ‘ballsy’. He added, “In a news market where there’s only four major players, a cartel if you will, we had an obligation to our investors to try to steal the thunder of bloody Snoopnews or whatever it’s called, because undermining new market entrants is part of the cartel game”.

The newspaper editor stated that when a famous seventeen year-old school-girl essentially explains that to be super-rich, a vast pool of poor people is needed to work in a massive web of transnational corporations, it made his job as a media missionary for global capitalism more tricky.

Trumped by Samoan cleaners

Shayne Currie’s missionary work became trickier this week when two Samoan cleaners had found Lorde’s penciled speech one evening on a filing cabinet in The New Zealand Herald’s newsroom, just as news of its suppression was going viral. According to The New Zealand Herald editor, the cleaners, who are spouses, had taken “selfies” on a cellphone with The New Zealand Herald’s copy of Lorde’s hand-written speech and posted them on Facebook. Currie worries that the couple will become ‘celebrity cleaners’.

“It was a bit of an embarrassment because they took it in reception with The Herald’s branding behind them”, acknowledged Currie the way sheep would if they could speak Kiwilish.

In the silence, he added, “Besides, we would have looked like eggs if we didn’t print the speech.”

“It’s going to make it harder to keep up the ‘free market’ propaganda, when we’re going to be known for employing Samoan ‘celebrity cleaners’, who hold-down six jobs between them to put food on their family. And, as the New Zealand economy’s leading newspaper, whose Samoan ‘celebrity cleaners’ knew a scoop when they saw it and became famous for posting pictures of themselves on Facebook with the censored speech found on the filing cabinet in our newsroom”, moaned Currie.

Still, he said cheering himself up, “when you get gems like this quote from the Samoan cleaners, there’s value in printing them because its rebuilds your audience when you’ve lost legitimacy”, said Currie grinning over his i-Phone.

“Lorde, we luff yoo”, read Currie. “Yoo speek hour tru feelin hart. Dose boss palangi and deer brown, yellow n black sellout bros needs ta go ta chail. Not go paast Go with 200 billonairs, for ta jenoside yoo say n yur speek. XXX ta Falamoe familee”.

And then a sinking feeling came over Currie’s face when he suddenly realized that he confided too much.

American journalist Sophia Bigg-Storm tried to break the story that World I and World II were conjured by an Anglo-American Brotherhood who conspired to dominant the world by controlling oil and finance, through a system enforced by military aggression, subversion and other intrigues.  Her sleuth-work was supported by William Engdahl, author of works such as, Gods of Money and A Century of War; and also by Guido Giacomo Preparata, who wrote Conjuring Hitler. Bigg-Storm’s investigations were suppressed by her former employer, The National Enquirer.

NZ PM John Key’s Suppressed ‘Missing Million’ Voters Letter

Winning by Any Means Necessary: The ‘Smiling Assassin’ writes a draft in the Cabinet Diary.

 

Checking in: Neo-liberal Team Blue wants the Herald's readers to think New Zealand won't work without them.

21 September 2014

[INSERT NON-VOTING LOSER’S ADDRESS HERE]

 

Dear [INSERT NON-VOTING LOSER’S NAME HERE],

Congratulations for being one of the ‘Missing Million’ Voters who chose not to vote in the New Zealand economy’s 2014 general election. Your absenteeism was not only crucial for the National Party’s hat-trick win. It was also the result of a deliberate, and let’s be honest, ruthless strategy to turn lefties, and especially young people, off voting.

Since I became leader eight years ago, we at National (AKA Brand Key) have pursued a ‘two-track’ communications strategy to quite literally undermine ‘democracy’. The key to our hidden agenda was to outsource dirty political attacks of the kind that journalist Nicky Hager exposed in his book Dirty Politics, to right-wing blog-sites, such as Whale Oil and Kiwiblog.

These nasty assaults were mostly aimed at National’s opponents to discredit them, attack centrist National Party politicians to shift the party further to the right, and influence the outcomes of elections.

My top PR-man and senior advisor, Jason Ede, led these dirty political attacks while he was on the National Party payroll, which meant he could perform his covert activities outside pesky official information request processes. In other words, unless you had a fly on the wall inside his office, two doors down from mine, you couldn’t tell – as a naive New Zealander – what he was doing.

The media focused mostly on right-wing ‘attack dog’ blogger Cameron Slater, whose communications were hacked. Slater did a great job attacking left-wing opponents. But, it was right-wing blogger David Farrar of Kiwiblog fame (Est. 2003) who, essentially, lived a double-life as National’s chief pollster since 2004. Farrar was well-placed to write ‘attack dog’ articles on his popular right-wing blog-site, Kiwiblog, utilizing insider information about issues that National and our opponents were either strong or weak on, according to population demographics across the country, tracked over time.

Meanwhile, I was cast as ‘Mr Nice Guy’ so that the slucker-lucker public wouldn’t think for a moment that the minor scandals, embarrassing smears, and gaffs that were blown out of proportion by a compliant propagandist news media system, had anything to do with me. Indeed, it’s a damning reflection on New Zealand’s mainstream media because they all failed to lead their news bulletins, front-pages and magazine covers with these key findings of Nicky Hager’s meddling investigation.

The intent behind dirty political attacks is that they project the idea politics is a mucky business, and cannot possibly be done ‘above-board’. To make it super-clear, we at Team Key have perpetrated these crimes of power knowing that it benefits right wing parties such as ours because conservative right-wing voters with investments; whether businesses, financial portfolios, or houses they never intend to pay for, will still turn out to vote in a dirty political attack environment.

I make these brazen disclosures because I regard you as not only stupid. But, also because you are a bona fide Fightless Kiwi that is too disempowered to organize, strategize and mobilize (much like your apathetic suck-lucker voting cousins).

So, thanks for not voting, loser. Don’t feel bad. There are 999,999 other losers just like you.

Yours smugly,

John Phillip Key.

AKA Prime Minister of New Zealand,

AKA My Henchmen.

P.S. Thanks a Million. Like transformers, there’s more to this scandal than meets the eye.

Harry Potter’s Suppressed Interview (Edited Transcript)

A Wizard Goblin Bankers’ War. Magically Conjured Credit. How the Wizard Bankers’ Military Underpins the US Dollar. Harry Potter, who traveled by an ultra-fast sub-terrain train network to the far-flung economy of New Zealand for an interview with a non-Hollywood aligned news outlet, Snoopman News, arrived at night. It was stormy. The interview took place on the mean streets of Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city, which was built unwisely in a volcanic rainforest.

Epic Storm Brewing: US President Barack Obama and New Zealand Prime Minister (& ex-banker) John Key read about the suppression of Harry Potter’s interview following his stormy rendezvous with Snoopman News.

====================

Harry Potter: Sophia, thanks for meeting me in the middle of a storm. When I was working on the Harry Potter film series, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger and I found out that there is a Wizard-Goblin Bankers’ War raging. This war has been going on for 900 years, ever since the Knight’s Templar Dark Wizards established an international banking system and built the castles of Europe as a wealth defence network.[i] Their system threatened the Goblin bankers plans for financial control of the Muggle World.

When Dark Wizard Pope Clement abolished the Templar Wizard’s order in 1313, the surviving Templar Wizard’s went underground. They eventually resurfaced as a new occult society, Freemasonry, which served as a covert mechanism to spread the British Empire.[ii]

Fraternities of Dark Wizard and Witch Bankers across every region of the world fight with each other and with the Goblin Bankers, who traditionally have been far more unified.[iii] However, the bankers of the magical realm control almost every Muggle economy. The most powerful faction are the Trans-Atlantic Dark Wizard Capitalists, centered around Anglo-American Banking and Oil Dynasties, who have gained tremendous power over almost every nation through wars and terrorism, and other forms of coercion, including financial and economic warfare.[iv]

The US dollar, which has been the world’s unofficial world currency since World War II, has been backed by the United States’ muggle military, and not gold or silver as it has been at various times.[v] Because USA America has used its military power to force or coerce nearly every country in the world to trade oil in US dollars, the rest of the world has, in effect, been financing the Dark Wizard’s militarization of the planet through the USA American Empire.[vi]

There’s one thing that the rivalrous Dark Wizards and Witches and their perennial enemies, the Goblin Bankers’, agree on and that is to maintain and control debt-based money systems.[vii] In a debt-based monetary system, the supply of cash is kept scarce. Because most muggles are restricted from earning enough, due to this enforced scarcity of cash, they are coerced to borrow from the Dark Wizards, Witches and Goblins of banking.

It’s very stealthy. This imposed cash scarcity means the entire muggle race is forced to compete for cash, that the Dark Wizard and Goblin bankers keep scarce, in order to try to make enough money to pay the ‘loans’ and interest.[viii]

It gets worse.

Credit is simply magical money conjured into existence out of thin air at the time naïve muggle ‘borrowers’ agree to make payments in the future to service the ‘loan’.[ix]

Look at us. We’re completely soaked. (From inside his jacket, Potter retrieved his wand to perform a drying charm). Exaresco!

Amazonian-American journalist Sophia Bigg-Storm tried to break the story that World I and World II were conjured by an Anglo-American Brotherhood who conspired to dominant the world by controlling oil and finance, through a system enforced by military aggression, subversion and other intrigues.  Bigg-Storm’s investigations were suppressed by her former employer, The National Enquirer,  a newspaper that movie critics think is just make-believe because it was depicted in the movie Citizen Kane. She was recently gifted Wonder Woman’s Lasso of Truth on a recent holiday to her ancestral home of Paradise Island, which is driving other reporters mad with envy.

INOCULATING “PORTRAIT OF A PRIME MINISTER”

Denying the PR-Strategy Behind NZ PM’s ‘Unauthorised’ Bio

During an interview with the biographer of an ‘unauthorized’ bio on New Zealand’s prime minister John Key, “Breakfast” programme (June 26, 2014) host Rawdon Christie inoculated the key weakness of the book project: its inherent bias.

Inoculation is a public relations (PR) tactic where the weakness of the matter at hand is acknowledged, then quickly brushed aside. The intention is that news audience thinks nothing more of it, satisfied that there is nothing under-handed to see, as the documentary The Hollow Men showed.

The One News television broadcaster asked biographer John Roughan, a senior columnist for the corporately-biased New Zealand Herald, if he expected there would be criticism of the timing of the biography, given there is a general election in September.

Roughan downplayed the political strategy, essentially saying it was an economically motivated one. “We wanted to get the book out before an election, ’cause elections are so risky, anything can happen. And who knows where he’ll be in six months time. Right now, we think there’s an interest in him, there’s a market for knowing more about John Key and his life,” Roughan said.

While asking the biographer if there were a political conspiracy behind the timing of the book, Christie feigned to stammer as he asked the question.

“Yeah, but, ah, this isn’t some sort of, aah, political, aah, sort of a, conspiracy to try and give him some PR? Mind you, does he need the extra PR right now?” asked Christie smirking his way through the ‘stammering ritual’.

“No, he doesn’t,” said biographer John Roughan.

This part of the interview was the only place where the One News “Breakfast” host stammered in his performance. The ‘stammering ritual’ creates the effect that only those who have trouble stringing a sentence together would think such things.

Locating Conspiracy: The New Zealand Political Context

Conspiracies are secret agreements for political gain to the detriment of society. They can occur even where the projects are well-publicized. The vital point is the intent behind the project is hidden. Given that the Key government is advancing a Shock Doctrine ‘free market’ economic framework, such as nationwide state-housing evictions amid a ‘strategic sabotage of society’ to widen inequality, those key insiders behind this book are seeking to hide the purpose of their project, while ‘painting’ a propagandist portrait of John Key.

Christie’s ‘tell’ that he has just ‘successfully’ pulled off this vital ‘inoculation ritual’, is his “Umm” as he moves on. It is an unintentional stammer that P.R.-trained professionals and politicians do as they pass through the tricky bit.

State broadcaster One News has billed the biography as an ‘unauthorized bio’. Indeed, the One News “Breakfast” host asked, “It’s an unofficial biography is it?”, and did not wait for an answer. The biographer did not correct him either, but instead smirked. The article with the video clip explains it this way:

“The biography is unauthorised, meaning Mr Key wasn’t allowed to read it until it had gone to print, and wasn’t able to veto any of the copy. However, he did give extensive interviews for it.”

In a parallel universe to the Media Propaganda-Public Relations-Psychological Operations State-Corporate Complex, an ‘unauthorized biography’ means a work about the life of a person that is written without their help. ‘Help’ is a word that is best friends with the word ‘cooperation’. Yet, as the biographer himself acknowledges, John Key provided several lengthy interviews for the book project!

Best Friends Tweet: Snoopman News explains to One News that the difference between (un)authorized in a biography project is to do with how friendly help is cooperation.

Whilst at face value there is nothing wrong with writing a biased biography that is promoted as an opportunity to make the most of ‘market interest’, there is something deeply wrong with two major media outlets colluding to downplay the inherent political strategy in the lead up to the September 20 nationwide election.

It is also disturbing given it occurs amid the continued application of the Shock Doctrine, a stealthy project that is used to mete-out a ‘strategic sabotage of society’, while the dominant coalitions of capitalists accumulate more power through outsized economic gain made by exploiting engineered economic crises.

Furthermore, it is disturbing because this unacknowledged application of the Shock Doctrine is a conspiracy that has involved both National and Labour-led governments since 1984. It relies on mass populaces everywhere not knowing about it, as Canadian journalist Naomi Klein states in the documentary, The Shock Doctrine.
