The truth is that the 5 Eyes spooks meet in NZ quite regularly and the surprise by the corporate media is more due to the lack of institutional knowledge now inside these news organisations.

The surprise by the corporate mainstream media that the 5 Eye Nazgul are meeting in Queenstown is Orwellian double think.

The truth is that the 5 Eyes spooks meet in NZ quite regularly and the surprise by the corporate media is more due to the lack of institutional knowledge now inside these news organisations.

This was March 2011…

Key meets high-ranking US intelligence chief
Prime Minister John Key has had a meeting with a man he describes as the most senior American intelligence official to visit New Zealand.

…this was September 2012…

US Defense Secretary’s visit ‘shows great progress’ – Coleman
New Zealand is hosting the United States Secretary of Defense today in a symbolic visit that could signal a move towards restoring defence ties between the two countries.

…and this was November 2012…

Mystery spook’s identity confirmed
The identity of a United States spy who mysteriously landed in Wellington last year can be revealed as National Security Agency director General Keith Alexander.

…this ignorant surprise at 5 Eye spooks visiting NZ hides the horrible reason as to why the 5 Eye Nazgul visit so regularly here, and that is because we are so apathetic that we don’t bother protesting these visits.

If these spooks were trying to meet in Canada, Australia, Britain or the US, it would provoke massive civil rights protests, but because they are held in the Shire, the sleepy hobbits of muddle Nu Zilind barely even register what the hell is going on.

It is time we pulled out of the 5 Eyes and became an independent nation again, whatever we gain from being a member is nothing compared to the control we are losing. The GCSB and SIS have both had increases in budget by 250% and 174% under National and Key reorganised the following intelligence apparatus to answer only to a small clique of security goons that Prime Minister Bill English now controls; the Organised Crime Intelligence Unit, Financial Intelligence Unit, Strategic Intelligence Unit, National Bureau of Criminal Intelligence, Identity Intelligence Unit, Threat Assessment Unit, Police Terrorism Investigation and Intelligence Group and the Special Investigation Group.

That’s a lot of security apparatus doing what?

The Government can barely keep our privacy safe as it is with their new demands of unconstricted access held by multiple agencies…

‘Extremely disappointing’: Minister still concerned after privacy near-miss

MSD privacy breach report raises more questions than answers: Anne Tolley

Our digital individualism has trapped us all culturally by the mass surveillance of the Deep State and its power over our Democracy is almost immeasurable.

    What is never investigated and discussed is how the information collected is used. It is used to discredit, distrust and destroy the lives of innocent people who are seen as a potential threats to industry or foreign relations. Those “threats” can be as little as getting involved in inter-cultural organizations and then someone connected – to temporary visa scams, for example – disliking them. For that they can have their lives ended, essentially. Fired, smeared, disrupted, sent int unemployment and poverty.

      I’m pretty sure the sigint functions help to compile the “kill list” that Obama instituted. Every Tuesday he signed off on those to be killed.
      Based on their communications with what the US deems to be terrorists.
      Some journalists found themselves on the list, and there are two suing Trump at present because they are on a kill list compiled by the Obama administration
      Key admitted that our collection of metadata contributed to the drone program in May 2014
      Obama was bad enough, 10x more droning than Bush,with the attendant wedding party slaughters and killing of children, but now Trump has given the CIA total discretion to drone who ever they like
      Do we want to be part of this?

  2. Ian Kiddle says:

    I wholeheartedly agree. We should reclaim our independence and withdraw from 5Eyes. Once upon a time the Labour Government of NZ had the courage to reject nuclear weapons. This policy,meant to advance a peaceful world and supported by the majority of New Zealanders, has been corrupted by our involvement in 5Eyes where we are used to give validity to the aggressive and imperialistic ambitions of the worst factions of USA and NATO who seem intent on creating mayhem in Libya, Iraq, Syria, Ukraine, Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Somalia, and now maybe North Korea. Any of you arseholes in the mainstream media notice the common factors in all these conflicts. It is not fighting terrorism, protecting democracy, protecting human rights or protecting our “way of life”. The common factor is the USA and NATO killing people to advance their own self interest regarding energy resources, ensuring Israel is the top dog in the Middle East and distracting their own people from the fraud perpetrated on the people by the Western Banks. Indeed some commentators say the Afghan war is primarily about protecting the flow of money from the poppy fields to the bankrupt financial system. I would not have believed this a few years ago but then heroin production has been the major winner from the American prosecution of the Afghan war, 16 years long so far and the American security apparatus has hidden budgets, hidden agendas and does not seem to be answerable to the elected government. Why should we support this bullshit?

    Something big’s up therefore I’m not sure whether I should be glad to be here and a Kiwi or freaked out that we’re undoubtedly now a target. The small penis has a lot to answer for.

  4. Lois Griffiths says:

    The ‘5 eyes’ are really ‘6 eyes’..as exposed by Jeff Halper, author of War Against the People , p104
    “The IDF’s Urim facility in the northern Negev is part of the network of Echelon satellite interception ground stations initially set up in the early 1960s by the US, Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand (“Five Eyes”)…”

  5. saveNZ says:

    +1

    especially with Trump and May at the helms..

    “It is time we pulled out of the 5 Eyes and became an independent nation again, whatever we gain from being a member is nothing compared to the control we are losing.

  6. Trevor Mills says:

    You see the pattern, don’t you?
    It’s all about making money from war, so all this spying and so-called security is really about keeping the populations tied down with lies and propaganda, while the military-industrial-political complex of oligarchs are out to kill those in opposition to the dirty tactics of greed and make a financial killing from all their profiteering in a domain of world domination through war.
    Peace, let alone world peace, is something these oligarchs detest and will fight against. They have no honourable intentions of looking after the welfares and concerns of their own backyards.
    They won’t trade in peace, they won’t work together in peace.
    Killing innocent victims and those who stand against war crimes and crimes against the people have no effect on these gluttonous fools. Profiteering from war brings them more income. So bringing their meetings here to New Zealand they have no confrontation, which makes it easier for them to get on with their dirty business agendas.
    Peace means everything to the innocent people of the world.
    Of the oligarchs, to them peace means nothing.

      Here at home listening to Alan Gibbs this morning I heard a similar world view.
      Market fundamentalism=human greed and artificially whipped up desire allowed to run amok with no regard for any other living beings or the environment in general.

    The CIA are still involved in torture. The FBI are going after Assange and both perpetuate lies and misinformation. N.W.O agenda.
    The real risks to a nations security are those who perpetuate fear and war and misinformation and that’s the CIA and FBI and most governments and the MSM. The CIA & FBI are shitting themselves over the pedophile; drug and human trafficking exposures.

    We not only need to ditch the 5 eyes, we need to expose their intentional misleading the public about their dirty secret games taking away our privacy and sovereignty. The 5 eyes have infiltrated all aspects of modern global communications networks and they are a very close knit secretive group. This country of ours should be up in arms and very disgusted about this meeting in Queenstown.

    I agree Martyn, we here in NZ are way to apathetic and lazy and not organized enough do what is needed to get rid of them and speak out in Queenstown. We taxpayers are paying for these types of secret meetings and deals right here in NZ and that makes my blood boil. NZ is being use as GCSB monitors and spies on us and our pacific neighbors and then feeds this info to the 5 eyes.
    THE GCSB INTELLIGENCE COLLECTING OCCURS COMPLETELY WITHIN A U.S. RUN SYSTEM.
    WE ARE AMERICAS LITTLE LAP DOG YET AGAIN.
    Their game is to continue to feed the war mongering and war fear frenzy and money to be made on war and using us to do it.
    Thanks National – job well done.

      ‘The real risks to a nations security are those who perpetuate fear and war and misinformation and that’s the CIA and FBI and most governments and the MSM.’

      Absolutely agree (except there should be an apostrophe in there).

      Add to that list (as far as NZ goes) city, district and regional councils and a lot of the business sector.

      We are surrounded by professional liars, and governed by professional liars, and a vast portion of the populace is not even aware and doesn’t care. And since theses professional liars are making good incomes -albeit short term- out of lying, even as they fuck up practically everything they touch, they’re not going to stop.

      Yes to all that.

      And now that Spark has conned us all into believing that “they have bought our ISP home” don’t believe them, they are patent liars all of them.

      Our computers and smartphones are all now being daily scanned by five eyes so we are now one of the most heavily censored/spied upon countries globally now.

      This doesn’t make me feel safer it makes me feel even much more insecure.

    Now that Trump has given in to his Jewish convert daughter Ivanka’s and her Jewish husband’s influence, and instead of listening to mad Bannon is now listening to his generals and corporate business bosses, new hard line agendas are being followed in the White House, Pentagon and security services. The hard liners are in charge again, as they were under the Presidents Bush Senior and Junior, and this time the talk is even harsher:

    Friendship with Israel and Netanjahu (warm ties), hatred towards Iran, stirring against North Korea, a new “axis of evil” is being designed, and as NZ Inc remains a member of the 5 Eyes, we can expect to be drawn into the next war adventures very, very soon.

    That is unless we may decide to steer a different course under a new government.

    The five Eyes has to be a priority target for removal . When is the next protest to descend on the site of this jackboot licking abomination? Patriots have in the past made their opposition known in a very creative Way. I hardly need add that it makes us a possible nuclear target!!

    This is why we are a nuclear target. Make no mistake about that.

    “The new way of thinking was reflected by Tenet at a closed-door meeting of top intelligence officials of the English-speaking world, gathered on March 10, 2002, in Queenstown, New Zealand.
    [“The Dark Side,” Jane Mayer, p.131-132]
    ‘Gentlemen,’ Tenet had reportedly said with a dramatic pause, ‘we are at war.’ What this meant, he had gone on to explain, was “As for the CIA, I can tell you this. There’s nothing we won’t do, nothing we won’t try, and no country we won’t deal with to achieve our goals-to stop the enemy. The shackles, my friends, have to be taken off.’
    “Other top American officials in attendance included Lieutenant General Michael Hayden, then head of the NSA; Mueller, the Director of the FBI; and the CIA’s head of covert operations, James Pavitt. Pavitt evidently amplified the tough talk, noting, ‘We’re going to be working with intelligence agencies that are utterly unhesitant in what they will do to get people to talk.'”
    6 eyes glittering in the dark..

    ‘NATO operation GLADIO’ establishes absolutely, that covert ‘western intelligence’ deploys terror bombings on ‘home’ populations as ‘strategy of tension’ control mechanisms [Refer Bologna railway station bombing 1980.] “You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple: to force … the public to turn to the state to ask for greater security.” [sworn testimony by Gladio agent Vincenzo Vinciguerra.]

    “The gloves coming off’ means exactly what it says. 911 was the largest ‘GLADIO’ attack of all time, whether this forum is willing to acknowledge it or not, and is the US deepstate excuse [casus belli] to rage against ALL enemies foreign and domestic.
    Any real popularity, supporting rejection of US strategic interests in this country, will result in False flag or designer attacks on ‘innocent people’ in it.
    Blamed, as ALL these latter day global attacks have been, on ‘Islamic terror.’
    NZ’ers easy relationship with our US cousins, would come to a sudden end.

    • “The gloves coming off’ means exactly what it says. 911 was the largest ‘GLADIO’ attack of all time, whether this forum is willing to acknowledge it or not, and is the US deepstate excuse [casus belli] to rage against ALL enemies foreign and domestic.

      “whether this forum is willing to acknowledge it or not” – or whether it’s true or not?

      By the way, Remo, you do realise that you’re referencing Vincenzo Vinciguerra, a known neo-fascist serving a prison term for murdering three Italian policemen. Anything he has to say about 9/11 is therefore suspect. He’s been in prison since 1972.

      • remo says:

        Oh, Its true alright, Frank. You can’t turn 11 ACRES of 5″ concrete flooring into hot rapidly expanding PPM Dust per SECOND in mid-air by gravity alone. You can’t suddenly drop an 81 columned 47 storied steel framed high rise[WTC7] @ Free Fall in 6.5 seconds, by ‘office furnishings fire’ either.
        I guess that’s what the science march is all about.

        Vinciguerra has nothing to do with 911.
        I referenced his sworn testimony as illustration of the malevolence of the earlier NATO program he was involved in; that became 911. He reveals the reality of the fascist alliance with NATO and the willingness of ‘deepstate’ – which is what it is – to use extreme violence in deceptive ‘hate-crimes’ against innocent civilians to achieve their end. False Flag attacks. Bologna was false flag. So was 911.

        • Mike in Auckland says:

          Remo, you have in my view already discredited yourself with some of your former comments and attempts to present biased and made up info here, also lately by posting a link to a website showing extremely graphic decapitated kids, allegedly victims of ISIS or so.

          You go to great lenghts, but either do fall for conspiracy stuff yourself, or you spread it knowingly that it is false, which would be rather mischievously.

          So, i mean how should the surviving Bin Laden family or Sunni fundamentalists react to all these shenanigans because they celebrate every time the west fail and upload loving memories of post celebration to Liveleaks.com

          I mean these celebration are equal as ludicrous as official statements over 9/11.

          This horse has been flogged to death. Lets put it to rest.

          • remo says:

            Mike.
            Vinciguerra, is no mischief. NATO operatives murdered 85 citizens stone dead in Bologna railway station in 1980. That is on the public record. A mass-murder designed by NATO/GLADIO network to be blamed on ‘the communists’ at a critical time in the election cycle (Paris, anyone? islamic terrorism? )
            My argument is, that must be understood as template for the ‘NOW’ and any decisions going forward.
            The conspiracy of 911, is real, ongoing in Queenstown also, now. As it was in that earlier 2002 meeting cited above. Because the ‘investigation’ was fraud. The buildings were blown to pieces. I didn’t DO that, and I didn’t ‘make that up.’ THEY did. But it is within that matrix you and I are having to live as direct result. How could you possibly misunderstand that?
            Those areas you accuse me of ‘falling for’ – the horrendous video/photographs you refer to – have not been discredited by those active in the field determined to truth, and so must, in the first instance, be considered ‘real.’ NOT gratuitous to point out to you they emanate from groups the USA/fascist alliance is facilitating in regime change operations in Syria, and who have no proprietary right to the assets of that country. Thats ‘our western’ alliance, BTW, who by omission and active design, arm and transport and direct these brutes in the field, pretending them as enemy . Plenty of discussion of THAT, on the web.
            The discredited videos are generally headed ‘SITE” AND ‘WHITEHELMETS.’
            The horse never died. That was the trick. The deception. It pretended to, while morphing three new heads, becoming four -of-the-apocalypse, and they are presently at work in secrecy on the Whenua of Aotearoa, – land of the long white cloud – right now.
            It is what we think of that, is the issue.

        • Remo, I’m not going to debate 9/11 conspiracy fantasies with you. You can cherry-pick whatever information you glean from dubious conspiracy/”truth” websites to suit your world view.

          But it would be pretty damned hard to mount such a far-ranging conspiracy, with hundreds (thousands?) of operatives without the following three things happening;

          1. One of those hundreds or thousands of operatives coming forward and revealing all, in a fit of remorse/guilt,

          2. The Russians finding out and disclosing it to the media,

          3. Wikileaks getting hold of communications (emails, etc) from your phantom “conspirators” and splashing them all over the internet.

          The fact that there have been no such revelations should indicate to you that you are indulging in modern-day fables; 21st Century versions of “camp fire ghost stories”, done via internet conspiracy-merchants.

          Vinciguerra has nothing to do with 911.

          Really?

          So why did you juxtapose his name with your 9/11 conspiracy reference;

          …[sworn testimony by Gladio agent Vincenzo Vinciguerra.]

          “The gloves coming off’ means exactly what it says. 911 was the largest ‘…

          Or did you just name-drop for maximum effect?

          There is enough political intrigue and super-power rivalry on this planet without jousting at phantoms in the fog.

          That is what 9/11 conspiracy theories are; clouding real political events with fog.

  15. Mike in Auckland says:

    “Our digital individualism has trapped us all culturally by the mass surveillance of the Deep State and its power over our Democracy is almost immeasurable.”

    Well, watching TV3’s news at 6 pm with their Newshub reporter in Queenstown today, asking locals and tourists, whether they knew what ‘5 Eyes’ means, we can only have very little hope that the populace out there will ever get it, what dangers they are under.

    Almost all had NO clue about it, and seemed rather casually indifferent, yes blissfully ignorant, so the government, the complicit MSM (mostly that is), are very successful at keeping it all secret and hidden behind the scenes, what goes on.

    Dumb or ignorant voters seem to be the majority, so democracy is assigned to the graveyard, for sure, as it is ineffective and virtually non existent now.
