Who sez superheroes aren’t real?





The hactivist known as Whaledump/Rawshark has ceased operating. His/her final tweets on Twitter were a mix of “Goodbye Pork Pie“-style anti-establishment irreverance and solemn warnings…

A none-too-subtle, but cheeky warning to certain ‘ratfuckers’ out there,

A touch of the dramatic – appropriate for the political drama we’ve been engrossed with over the last few weeks,

And for a sheer Hollywood style grand-finale, this would be difficulty to trump – cue Mission: Impossible theme,

If there is one salient lesson we have to take from Rawshark’s endeavours – it is not the vindictive and vicious political manouverings on the Right; it is not the mis-use of ministerial power by certain amoral individuals; and nor is it the abuse of information to denigrate and destroy individuals for whom their only “crime” is to stand in the way of this government.


The most eye-opening realisation is where we have arrived as a society where individuals fear the power of the State to such a degree that they feel they have no other course of action except to become a vigilante operating under strict anonymity. There is a palpable fear arising from beneath the mask of  humour from Rawshark’s tweets.

John Key refers to Rawshark as a “criminal“,

“At the end of the day, I don’t know whom this criminal has been hacking…

…The responsibility is on the criminal to demonstrate that they are actually real or not.”

Which is interesting. Rawshark has not been charged with any offense, much less convicted of  any crime relating to these events. But yet Key has zero hesitation in taking on the role of Judge and Jury. As if his job of Prime Minister doesn’t fill his day sufficiently to keep him busy?

So what do we have in New Zealand, circa 21st Century, post-Roger Douglas?

We have;

  • A member of the Prime Minister’s office using Cameron Slater and his sleazy blog for dirty tricks
  • Possible criminal activity surrounding Jason Ede illegally accessing the Labour Party’s computer
  • A minister of the Crown feeding information on civil servants to the same blogger
  • A government appointee (Katherine Rich) using Slater to implement a smear campaign against Health activitists
  • And a Prime Minister who has judged and convicted a person – who has brought all this corruption out into the public – sight unseen

Thirty years ago, if this had come out into the open, the PM would have resigned; the government collapsed; and a snap election called. At least one minister would be undergoing a police investigation, and others would be disgraced and never work in the political field again.

But in 2014, it is business as usual.

And if the polls are to be believed, the moral compass of a sizeable chunk of the population has gone so awry that they see nothing wrong with dirty politics on such a scale as never before seen in this country.

Well, here’s a thought for all those fellow New Zealanders who think that what Cameron Slater, Judith Collins, Jason Ede, Jordan Williams, Carrick Lewis, Simon Lusk, Katherine Rich, Arron Bhatnagar, et al, did, was ok.

Political corruption, if left unchecked – and if rewarded at the ballot box – eventually flows out and infects the rest of society; the state sector; private commerce; law and justice; everywhere. Corruption eventually infiltrates like an infection into every part of our relationships.

The only sure way to stop corruption as we have recently uncovered is to cauterise it and destroy it.

If we don’t, the legacy we leave our children will be far, far worse than polluted rivers and lakes and growing child poverty.

We will finally have joined the rest of the human race. The bad parts of it.

We have had our warning. Our future now depends on what we do with it.

To Rawshark – whoever you might be; where-ever you might be; thank you.

  1. Thirty years ago, if this had come out into the open, the PM would have resigned; the government collapsed; and a snap election called. At least one minister would be undergoing a police investigation, and others would be disgraced and never work in the political field again.

    All who have ears to hear – let them hear.

  2. If this dirty politics crap doesn’t get cleaned up assertively I fear NZ is headed for a very dark place. The Right have abandoned even the pretence of morality, and without it politics is quickly reduced to a forte main contest.

    When the barricades go up, and the guillotines, the Right can thank John Key. For making them necessary.

  3. I think we have already found that dark place, and it is just being revealed right now.

    If the majority of NZers prefer FJK (according to FJKs media groupies) and his ilk to continue ruining our country – changing it from good to bad then the rot has already embedded itself in our society.

    It will take a lot of fixing up, and evil can only win if good does nothing.

    I believe FJK is truly evil, and I can’t wait to see him gone on Sept 20th.

    Please God, defend NZ!


  4. Excellent summation of the issue Frank.

    I am somewhat saddened our Rawshark has gone, because NZ does indeed owe him/her a huge debt of thanks for the work and effort (along with Nicky Hager) which has gone into exposing the low life decadents disguised as the peoples’ representatives!

    Now it’s up to us as to how we use the information. We have the power now to change tack, for the better, if we really want to.

    What does bother me is where has Rawshark dumped the Jason Ede/Slater emails? If they are with right wing media networks, they probably won’t see the light of day, well not this side of the election anyway! However, in saying that, so far senior NZH journalist David Fisher has been doing a good job of releasing the emails as they came to hand.

    Let’s hope Fisher has the damning Ede/Slater conclusion in his hands, ready for release prior to the election! But then I guess that greatly depends on how much (political) pressure is put on NZH bosses to NOT authorize publication!

  5. Everyone needs to know all this about FJK. To be fully informed before this election.

    Ladies and gentlemen, John Key,
    Leader of the National Party
    Prime Minister Of New Zealand since 2008
    Everyone Voted for him without knowing his track record,
    Who he worked for, Where his career originated & how he does business today.
    By the end of this Short Video you will know enough to be able to make an informed decision when voting him in or not again.
    Little Johnny was born in a state house,
    A Son of an alcoholic absentee father
    & guilt provoking mother
    who pins all her hopes on her son,
    living vicariously through him,
    especially because she never had another boy
    and never remarried.
    She then allegedly inherited a large sum
    and allegedly spent much of it on her son.

    John worked for 10 years
    as a New Zealand investment banker
    since the mid 1980’s
    When the market crashed
    he made a killing selling New Zealand dollars.
    He headed offshore In 1995
    working for…

    -Merrill Lynch
    This bank was exposed as the worlds first derivatives traders
    & went bust during the 2008 financial crisis due to its heavy investment in the derivatives market,
    swallowed up BY…

    – The Bank of America
    Which it turns out John Key still has shares in,
    A conflict of interest considering anyone could google the Bank name and “fines”
    to see it’s been fined many times for drug dealing,
    gun running, money laundering & is famous for getting countries into debt,
    Is John Key personally profiting from New Zealand’s growing indebtedness ?
    The Bank of America also has a stake in the military industrial complex
    who’ve profited tremendously after several successive, no end in sight, illegal US wars.
    This gives you an idea of the kind of circles John revolves in.
    John’s worked for Merrill Lynch in Singapore, London, Sydney & …

    When the “Irish Tiger” economy was kicking off,
    It was allowing “sweet heart” tax breaks
    to big banks and financial institutions
    if they moved their back offices to Ireland,
    So John did, Assisting 15,000 of his clients to Avoid Tax
    the Irish economy was hollowed out with debt,
    collapsing shortly after John skipped the country & put all his money into…

    -“Blind Trusts”
    John Key knows what’s in his blind trusts,
    he’s a bit of a drinker and he let it slip while a bit pissed
    that he owns a vineyard,
    turns out that vineyard is in his blind trust,
    although he claims he doesn’t know what’s in it.
    This is because he has 2 trusts,
    1 blind & 1 not so blind that mirrors the other one.

    He was in charge of business units like
    global foreign exchange
    and European bond and…

    -Derivative Trading
    What is Derivative Trading?
    Basically it’s so complicated that the Auditor general once said something like
    “it’s such a technical area that I can’t understand it,
    so I got KPMG to investigate themselves for me and they assure me it’s all good”
    Recall the great depression?
    Of course not, in the 1920’s you could buy $10 worth of shares for only $1 down
    allowing people to gamble on the stock market at incredible volumes,
    massive amounts of fake money & debt was generated
    and the economy got sucked into it like a black hole.
    To prevent that happening again, a law was crafted called…

    -The Glass Steagall Act
    Which was repealed in 1999 leaving the US derivatives market completely unregulated.
    The New York State gaming Commission tried to regulate it because they saw derivatives as gambling,
    but they were unsuccessful, obviously.

    In 1999 John was legally allowed to sell derivatives in America due to the repeal of Glass Steagall,
    Was invited to represent Merrill Lynch & join the Foreign Exchange Committee
    of the…

    -Federal Reserve Bank of New York
    A private banking cartel that has a monopoly on the supply of money
    and loan it to the US government at interest & more or less control the US government through debt.
    Ownership of the 13 banks with shares in the FED can be traced back to the worlds most ultra intergenerational wealth families, hidden away from public view via an elaborate network of family trusts.

    John Worked there for 2 years and twice undertook management studies at Harvard University in Boston.
    He became known as the smiling assassin by colleagues
    after personally terminating over a hundred employees in one day
    with a big beaming smile, no guilt, no remorse, no conscience, a…

    -Corporate Psychopath
    Charming & enchanting when you first meet them
    But are ultimately shallow and have few meaningful lasting relationships,
    They crave money and power and are willing to sabotage,
    intimidate, manipulate, steal, defame, lie and cheat, shamelessly without guilt,
    Desiring attention & idolization with pathological narcissism & despising criticism,
    Often sexually promiscuous.
    Private prosecutor Graham McCready is including a DVD of
    The Wolf Of Wall Street in his evidence against John Key
    Evidence of the lifestyle & mentality Key & co-workers likely enjoyed on wall street.

    Normally on Wall Street your earnings get paid
    40% Cash,
    40% Stock
    20% Options
    Key demanded to be paid 100% in stock and options
    That’s where his incentive to crime is!
    Imagine the opportunities for insider trading when you literally run the country?
    He tried to flush out commercially sensitive information from the ombudsman when trans-rail was being valued while at the same time owning shares in it!
    John Key just can’t help himself.

    When Key left Wall Street after 6 or 7 years in foreign exchange,
    he was in the tip top of the elite, with roughly 50 million on salary and bonuses,
    -Key refers to his 5 million dollar mansion as the house that Merrol built,
    They had a beach house in Omaha and now have a 3.2 million Hawaii holiday home,
    Only 202,000 people have incomes above 30 Million Dollars
    Roughly 2,000 of those are billionaires,
    -John Says
    “We’re not ridiculously wealthy, there are lots of people not seen on the NBR rich list that have a lot of money.”
    Not counting his blind trusts he could be worth hundreds of millions.
    Is he wall street banker or New Zealand prime minister?

    Jumping forward to the 2008 financial crisis:
    Money Magazine said derivatives were one of the chief causes of the 2008 credit crunch,
    A collapse that happened in the same year we elected John Key
    To handle the debt crisis he helped cause
    as he admitted on breakfast tv!
    And what did he do once elected in order to save us from the debt crisis?
    He borrowed more money than all previous prime ministers combined!
    We’ve gone from 8 billion to over 80 billion so far,
    With 112 Billion worth of derivative debts
    In Off The Books Accounting Since 2011 and growing!
    Key knew about his unauthorized biography long before it was released,
    guess what? It doesn’t even mention the word derivatives once!

    A man of the people you say?
    He’s supposed to be the Member of Parliament for Helensville,
    & lives across town in a 5 million dollar Parnell Mansion he calls “the house that Merrol built”,
    Only had 1 public meeting in his electorate the whole election,
    On the proviso that no one can talk about or criticize him, any other party,
    Or their policy, Or their candidates,
    And guess who was the only person that violated those conditions which John Key himself set up for everyone else? John Key!

    So, let me see if I have this straight,
    he’s a psychopathic narcissistic passive aggressive mamas boy with daddy issues,
    And he has control of a country that has no corruption prevention framework?

    He may have been sent here to destroy this country,
    But it is not yet destroyed & we can change our future if we choose to.
    Sink Team Key and it will deal a crippling blow to the financial elite’s agenda.” end quote.
