Christchurch Mosques Attack Riffed off Netflix’s Secret City?

A False Flag Black Operation with a Trojan Horse Twist?

Since June 2017, warnings had been sounded about New Zealand being vulnerable to interference from state actors, particularly China, whom were viewed as threats to N.Z.’s partnership in the ‘Five Eyes’ military alliance with America, Australia, Canada and Britain. Since the United States is the dominant belligerent power in this alliance, the possibility that the Christchurch shootings may have been an American-led Deep State false flag is explored. By analyzing the meta-data of events prior to, during and in the aftermath of this horrendous mass shooting, their consistency with signs of a false flag attack and a coup d’état in slow motion add weight to possibility that the ‘lone gunman’ may have been profiled as a suicidal psychopath capable of performing the hit-job, with a pseudo-commando character casting as a cover to achieve geo-political objectives. 

The striking key finding is that ‘Tarrant’ – whether wittingly or not – has actually gained the capitulation of the Government, the political opposition and the news media – since all of these email recipients have participated in the Police’s cover-up of the Christchurch attacks’ central terrible truth: no one need have died.

Weaponizing Time, Space and Institutions

The Christchurch Mosques Massacre of Friday March 15 2019 was the world’s first live-streamed civilian mass shooting and New Zealand’s largest peace-time massacre.[1]

The accused-gunman, ‘Brenton Harrison Tarrant’, is alleged to have shot 100 Muslim worshippers at two mosques in Christchurch New Zealand, killing 51 and injuring 49.[2] ‘Tarrant’ is reported to be 28-years old, a white male Australian national and an ex-gym trainer who had traveled extensively.[3]

Following Tarrant’s apprehension at 1:59PM or 19 minutes after he began his mayhem,[4] there were reports of multiple shooters,[5] gunshots at Christchurch Hospital, several bomb scares,[6] and three additional armed people in custody.[7] Taken together, this cluster of ‘messy aftermath’ events not only tied up emergency resources, but they may also be a ‘tell’ of an orchestrated Deep State false flag operation.

A false flag is an attack carried out by a Deep State network that produces the evidence to lay blame either on an enemy state, or unwitting patsies, or witting suicidal psychopaths to construct a new state enemy or escalate a conflict. The purpose is to achieve hidden objectives that reset the political trajectory of a society, and sometimes, the world.[8] A false flag black op need not involve several thousand people across the state-corporate apparatus of a country. The less in the compartmentalized loop the better the chances that such an orchestrated conspiracy can be successfully covered-up – particularly in a small country with a population of five million, such as New Zealand.

The Christchurch Mosques Massacre also came with a twist that has the hallmarks of a darkly innovative training drill scenario that may have gone ‘live’. At 1:31PM, or nine minutes before the first mosque in Christchurch was attacked – the Prime Minister’s staff at the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet in Wellington received an email from the accused terrorist shooter. The email – which was sent to 70 others and was subject-lined “On the attack in New Zealand today” – contained the gunman’s attached ‘manifesto’ titled “The Great Replacement”. This ‘manifesto’ was forwarded with the email to the Parliamentary Services Security Team, in accordance with security policy, within two minutes of receipt, the Prime Minister said.[9]

However, the N.Z. Police claimed in its ‘Timeline of Events’, published a month after the attacks, that the email and manifesto were forwarded to Parliament’s Security Team at 1:40PM, which very neatly matched the time when the accused-gunman commenced his carnage.[10] After the Police were called 44 seconds after the attack started at 1:40PM, it took the first Police Armed Offenders Squad 11 minutes to arrive at the first mosque to be attacked, the Masjid Al Noor Mosque on Deans Ave, despite the first Armed Offenders Squad team arriving near the scene five minutes earlier at 1:46PM. And, despite there being two Police Stations in the Central Business District five cruising speed minutes away.[11] Because the N.Z. Parliament’s security protocol stipulated forwarding threatening emails to the Security Team, rather than also ringing and emailing the Police, those nine ticking minutes before the Police were called meant that the dimension of time had been weaponized by the alleged ‘lone gunman’ – and actually became a deadly countdown.

Moreover, the three dimensions of space were also weaponized.

A quick search for the word “attack” – as used in the email’s subject line – revealed its use spiked at 14 times on page 11 of the ‘manifesto’, which included the questions, “Why did you choose New Zealand as a place to attack” and “Was there any reason you attacked that(those) mosque(s) in particular?” – in bold type. On the following page, ‘Tarrant’ mentions – twice – carrying out attacks on the “Christchurch and Linwood mosques” and a “mosque in Ashburton” – if he made it there before being caught.

The Sunday after the mosques attack, Prime Minister Ardern said the gunman’s email, “did not contain a location, it did not include specific details.”[12] N.Z.’s PM also claimed the email and the ‘manifesto’ did not supply “details that could have been acted upon immediately”. By her rhetoric, the Prime Minister was performing an Inoculation Ritual, which is a public relations (PR) tactic that acknowledges the weakness of the matter at hand, and then it is quickly brushed aside. The intention is that the news audience will think nothing more of it, satisfied that there is nothing under-handed to see.

The “Linwood” mosque mentioned twice in the terrorist’s manifesto is readily identified on Google Maps with an Islamic crescent moon and star symbol signposting the Linwood Islamic Centre at 223 Linwood Ave, Linwood. There are two Islamic Centres in Christchurch, which like the mosques are also identified on Google Maps with the Islamic crescent moon and star symbol. One is called the Linwood Islamic Centre. And therefore, the Rasol-O-Allah Islamic Center in the outer suburb of Bishopdale was likely not to be the “Christchurch mosque” that the accused-terrorist’s ‘manifesto’ was referring to. By quick deduction, it can be seen the Muslim Association of Canterbury is located at the same site as what soon became known to the world as the Masjid Al Noor Mosque at 101 Deans Ave. The Masjid Al Noor Mosque is the closest one to the Christchurch CBD, or five minutes cruising drive by the fastest route from the two Christchurch CBD Police stations. Therefore, the Al Noor Mosque is the “Christchurch” mosque referred to twice in the ‘manifesto’ that was attached to the accused-terrorist’s email, and was Tarrant’s first target.

To any international Police counter-terrorism squads, anti-terrorist Army units and political élites examining the details of the Christchurch Mosques Massacre, they could not have helped but notice that all of the terrorist shooter’s 71 email recipients would rue the nine squandered minutes – since no one acted quick enough to stop his mayhem. Therefore, in addition to weaponizing time and space, this working class white supremacist appears to have also weaponized the VIPs in government and the political opposition, as well as the news media – whom together received his email and ‘manifesto’. International observers may even have wondered if this head-start was a darkly innovative training drill that came packaged with a Trojan Horse scenario that went ‘live’.

Police Special Squads, Army Snipers and Air Force Exercises

At the time of the mosques attacks, there just happened to be three multi-national, multi-agency training exercises occurring in, around and above Christchurch. The ‘lone’ gunman’s uncanny timing meant that when the nation’s entire paramilitary police were training in a hospital in the southern suburb of Cashmere – they were drawn away from the CBD Police Stations, located dead centre between the two targeted mosques. Meanwhile, the country’s other top snipers in the Army’s Special Air Service (SAS) were also engaged in a multi-national training exercise at a shooting range just outside Christchurch, while the N.Z. and U.S. air forces trained above.

The Police training exercise involved the Armed Offenders Squads (AOSs) working in conjunction with the counter-terrorism Special Tactics Groups or STGs, and Australian and Hong Kong Police and was focused on ‘room clearances’ using shot-guns, semi-automatics and smoke bombs.[13] Unlike previous special squad training exercises, the N.Z. Police did not publicize this national-level exercise that coincided with the March 15 attacks.[14] Meanwhile, snipers from the N.Z. Defence Force, the Australian military and Asian countries including Hong Kong, were participating in the Defence Force shooting range exercise when the alleged ‘lone gunman’ inflicted mayhem.[15] The Royal New Zealand Air Force were also conducting a 10-day joint military day and night training exercise, called Exercise Nocturnal Reach, that included low-flying in a simulated hostile environment, day and night, with drop zones and a flight path intersecting with Christchurch involving the Hercules C-130 transport aircraft from the 40th Squadron and support from the United States Air Force.[16]

The coincidence of training drills, exercises and war-games underway as an attack occurs or that finishes just prior to an attack – is not simply a sign of a false flag black operation. Such drills, exercises and war-games provide the cover for deep state actors to take the training scenarios live, exploiting the confusion about whether the phenomena is an exercise or a real world situation. The drills, exercises and war-games that coincide with a terrorist shooting, bombing or a hijacked plane smashing into a building are the key sign of a false flag black op – as Jon Rappoport’s article, “Training Exercises Dovetail with Mass Shootings, What are the Odds?” points out.[17]

The three major multi-national training exercises that occurred at the time of the Christchurch mosques shootings appeared to be embedded with metaphor. While the country’s entire paramilitary Police Squads were training in a hospital with Australian and Hong Kong special squads, the Army’s Special Air Service (SAS) sharp-shooters were out of range target practicing at a shooting range with the Australian military and Asian countries including Hong Kong. Meanwhile, the entire South Island had already been transformed into a simulated hostile environment under the watch of the Royal New Zealand Air Force and the U.S. Air Force, night and day. Were these training exercises that coincided with the Christchurch Mosques Massacre held to demonstrate that the supply of security had been withheld? And then, once the mayhem was inflicted, was the intention to supply a sudden show of force that would work as a mass psychological mechanism of manipulation to manufacture gratitude for the national security state amid the mass trauma? Since terrorism is theatre designed to induce shock, fear and submission on the watching audience[18] – were the attacks on the mosques also an act of psychological warfare perpetrated by a transnational Deep State network to achieve deep political objectives?

In other words, were N.Z.’s Deep State players – in conjunction with American and Australian Deep State counterparts – signalling that they could not only inflict mass carnage, trauma and fear, but also make incursions into the country’s triage life support systems, overwhelm them with collateral damaged ‘causalities’ and turn the other half of the country into real world hostile environments beyond the shooting ranges – if deemed necessary? Because the world’s intelligence agencies, secret services and special force units play a contrived ignorance game about one another’s deep state machinations, the visible Public State is largely clueless about the prevalence of Deep State-sponsored terrorism and the codified communications embedded into such events.[19] This clueless-ness means that the earnest, decent citizens who work in the visible government can be blind to how exactly a stealthy coup d’état can be set in motion.

A Secret City Scenario with a Trojan Horse Twist?

Whether wittingly or not, the ‘lone wolf’ gunman effectively weaponized time, space and key institutions when he sent to his email containing the manifesto to 71 recipients, including the PM’s office. What are the odds that all 71 recipients would fail to think quick enough and call the Police before the alleged lone wolf terrorist shooter could inflict his mayhem? The accused shooter’s email may have been a Trojan Horse device to capture N.Z.’s political élite, establishment news media, Police and the security and intelligence agencies by transforming all computers and other digital devices that received the email, and its ‘manifesto’, into cyber-age siege engines.

Indeed, the tradition of a gunman leaving a manifesto is one sign of a false flag black operation.[20] A manifesto usually fixes the assailant’s worldview, like cement for the official story and its roots can be traced back to the Greeks’ capture of Troy.

A Trojan Horse has come to mean a mythological metaphor element derived from the Trojan War that symbolizes subterfuge, or trickery. A Trojan Horse Mechanism works as a ruse of war, or military deception and sometimes exploits a force multiplier, or superior knowledge, to execute a creative, clever, unorthodox means to achieve a victory.

In the Trojan War, the ten-year siege of the City of Troy ended when the Greek Army appeared to gift a wooden horse. According to popular mythology, the Trojan Horse was a huge construction that contained an élite force in the body and two spies in the mouth, and was left behind by the apparently retreating Greek Army, evidently as an atonement for the desecration of the temple of Athena, the Goddess of War. Foolishly, the Trojans pulled the ‘gift horse’ into the walled city and during the night the élite Greek force crept out of the wooden horse, opened the gates for the waiting Greek Army, whom had pretended to sail away, to successfully lay siege to Troy.

The metadata in the clustered events associated with the Christchurch Mosques Massacre contain elements that appear to riff off Trojan Horse mythology.

In the story of the final capture of Troy, the Trojan Horse plot called for one Greek soldier, Sinon, to voluntarily stay behind and pretend as though he had been abandoned, and sacrificed to the sea powers, in order to explain that the Greeks had given up on their siege of Troy. Helpfully, the Greeks had also left an explanatory note with their parting gift horse, which read, “For their return home, the Greeks dedicate this offering to Athena” [the Greek goddess of war, wisdom and handcrafts]. According to the epic poet Virgil, Sinon convinces the Trojans that the Greek Army has left, while Homer has it that Helen of Troy sees through the plot, as does King Piriam’s daughter Cassandra, but like Helen of Troy, she too is ignored by the ruling patriarchy. Sinon spins the lie that the Horse is an atonement offering to the goddess Athena as redress for the desecration of her temple at Troy by the Greeks, and to ensure the Greek fleet were un-harried on their homeward journey. Besides, the Trojan Horse was intentionally built to be too large for the Greeks to take it into their city and gain the favor of Athena for themselves, Sinon evidently said.

Did ‘Tarrant’ volunteer for an ‘assignment’ that required a ‘lone wolf gunman’, while the Army and Police Special Squads had pretended to ‘sail away’ and a ‘manifesto’ was sent to cement the official narrative – like the note left attached to the Trojan Horse by Greeks that fooled the patriarchy of Troy? In computing, a Trojan is any malware that misleads computer users about the true intent of, say, mail that arrives in the inbox. Trojans can exploit security flaws, especially if computer systems are not well protected to prevent hacking or if security protocols are detectable to external browsers.

The accused ‘lone gunman’– who used two AR-15 semi-automatic assault rifles, two shotguns and a hand-gun, loaded with hollow-nosed ammunition designed to shred flesh to maximize shock, injury and lethality – came packaged with a pseudo-commando character casting. The working class white supremacist’s censored ‘manifesto’ reads like a try-hard booklet. For instance, the manifesto attributed to ‘Tarrant’ claims he is a Navy Seal graduate, trained in “gorilla [sic] warfare” and the U.S. armed forces top sniper with over 300 confirmed kills. Was the ‘manifesto’ made to look like it was typed by a ‘lone wolf terrorist’ while hiding a pseudo-commando character construction possibly written by deep state script-writers? ‘Tarrant’ even suggests a healthy degree of skepticism when he claimed he was neither a Fed or Mossad agent, nor a false flag patsy – and then signposts that the next mass shooter could be.[21]

Intriguingly, in recent years, ‘Tarrant’ is reported to have traveled extensively to countries such as Israel, Greece, North Korea, Turkey, Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, Romania, Spain, Portugal, France, Poland, Iceland, Argentina, Afghanistan, China and the Ukraine.[22] ‘Tarrant’ may have been identified as a suicidal, psychopathic white supremacist and chosen for hits on the mosques due to his killer prowess, his capacity to fool people and his lack of empathy – along with ‘flattering’ appeals to his narcissistic European Superiority Complex. Or, ‘Tarrant’ may have been ‘MK-Ultra-ed’ – meaning a victim is subjected to mind-control programming, originally developed by the CIA and the London Tavistock Institute under the auspices of Project MK-Ultra,[23] to create alternative personalities or ‘alters’ designed to perform specific tasks such as assassinations, mass shootings or suicide bombings.

Given the foregoing, the censorship of “The Great Replacement” ‘manifesto’ by New Zealand Chief Censor David Shanks takes on a deeper significance. The meme-laden ‘manifesto’ may contain evidence of a false flag coup d’état – albeit a possibly highly stealthy one occurring in slow motion that appears to have already forced policy capitulations of the Ardern Coalition Government. If there was not a conspiracy involving the Deep State network embedded within N.Z’s national security state working in cahoots with the American Deep State, there may as well have been.[24] A reset of New Zealand’s political trajectory appears to have occurred, with the national security state pulled back into the orbit of the United States-dominated ‘Five Eyes’ intelligence, security and defense alliance comprising America, Britain, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. Moreover, New Zealand’s big tech business interests are fused with the U.S. Military-Industrial-Smart-Tech Complex. For instance, the big clients of California–based transnational space firm, Rocket Lab – whose New Zealand space launch pad is located on the Mahia Peninsula – are the U.S. Department of Defence, NASA and DARPA – the U.S. military industrial complex’s primary R&D organization. Meanwhile, the New Zealand clients of California-based big data company, Palantir, include the N.Z. Department of Defence, the Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB), and the N.Z. Security Intelligence Service (SIS).[25]

The competition, tension and rivalry between the United States and China in the Asia-Pacific Region for influence and control, spilled over into friction about political penetration in New Zealand during the 2017 election campaign, following the publication of a study titled “Magic Weapons: China’s political influence activities under Xi Jinping” by University of Canterbury Professor Anne-Marie Brady. Curiously, just five days before the Christchurch Mosques Massacre, the former Deputy Chief of Staff in the Clinton White House, John Podesta, ‘warned’ that New Zealand’s next election could be hacked by Russian or Chinese state actors – in an exclusive interview on TV3’s Newshub 6 o’clock bulletin.[26] Podesta’s rhetoric on cyber attacks, fake news and how N.Z.’s membership in the ‘Five Eyes’ echelon spy network makes the South Pacific country a “juicier target” – appears to add up to an encoded metaphor-laden performance. After all, as a White House Deputy Chief of Staff, Podesta had a poisonous proximity to President Bill Clinton who oversaw the cover-up of numerous scandals related to his ‘Machine’ when he was Governor of Arkansas, that were either under investigation, shut-down or otherwise derailed – often through key witnesses, investigators and collaborators dying so frequently Clinton’s home-state earned the nickname – Arkanside. One of the most epic of these scandals involved gun-running out of Mena Airport, Arkansas, to Columbia and Nicaragua and drug trafficking back into Mena Airport and money laundering out of a Clinton project – the Arkansas Development Finance Authority and the Rose Law Firm, where Hillary Clinton worked – funnelling money through banks connected to the Bank of Credit and Commerce (BCCI), which was a conduit for CIA black-ops. These deep state machinations were exposed by the local news outlets and covered-up by the national media during the Iran-Contra scandal and subsequent probes – as the documentaries The Mena Connection, The Clinton Chronicles and The Clinton Body Count show.[27] Crucially, the implied solution packaged with Podesta’s alleged cyber-attack threat story of 10 March 2019 was for N.Z. to spend more on its commitment to the ‘Five Eyes’ Echelon spy apparatus.

It is, therefore, fascinating to note that in May 2018, there occurred a ‘China Influence’ event cluster. The first was a public talk in New Zealand on May 7 2018 given by Hillary Clinton, who warned that China was waging a foreign power grab that she dramatized as “a new global battle”. Then in mid-May, a former CIA analyst, Peter Mattis, was reported in the New Zealand media to have said in testimony to a U.S. Congressional committee that the influence of the Chinese Communist Party’s on New Zealand politics was concerning because the political élite did not take it seriously, he claimed. Mattis evidently told the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission of the U.S. Senate that Australia had had a similar problem of penetration of its “political core”, and asserted Australia’s political élite had seen the gravity of the situation. New Zealand’s media followed up revealing that a report titled “China and the Age of Strategic Rivalry”, had been published on May 2 2018 by the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, whom had hosted a workshop with academics in March 2018. The report claimed it would be a “major coup” if China were to separate New Zealand from its long-standing defence and security partners, and gain greater political influence in the Pacific Region, access to Antarctica and penetration to exploit the country’s farmed lands. These concerns were drawn from Professor Brady’s 2017 study, “Magic Weapons: China’s political influence activities under Xi Jinping”, in which she found extensive political penetration by China into New Zealand and said the small South Pacific nation was “very vulnerable to the shifts to global balance in economic and political power.” At the end of this ‘China Influence’ event cluster, Prime Minister Ardern was reported by Radio NZ on May 30 2018 to have said, “I take my steer on these matters from official channels, not opinions expressed at a workshop.”[28]

Then in February 2019, N.Z.’s top spies from the Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB) and the Security Intelligence Service (SIS) cautioned Parliament that the 2020 election is also vulnerable to attack, due to electronic voting, and that cyber warfare was a rising threat. National Party Leader Simon Bridges joked with the spies about dodgy emails. This ‘official channels’ warning appeared to echo Hillary Clinton’s warning and, whether wittingly or not – présaged John Podesta’s warning.[29] Was Podesta giving the ‘start signal’ to take the multinational training exercises in Christchurch live?

Hidden actors within N.Z.’s spy agencies may have manipulated the visible leadership to perform a Hostage Posting Ritual to advance the game. In game theory, ‘posting a hostage’ is a mechanism to construct stability and is predicated on a provisional promise to cooperate if other players post hostages too. In their paper, “Resolving social conflicts through hostage posting: theoretical and empirical considerations,” Gideon Keren and Werner Raub noted that “tacit communications of threats and promises are two major message strategies used to influence the behaviours of others”.  Therefore, ‘the game’ requires an implied threat, which signals a defection on the next move if the other player does not post a hostage too. As crisis management expert Paul ’t Hart observed in his paper,  “Symbols, rituals and power: The lost dimensions of crisis management”, ‘crises’ can be contrived and manoeuvred by actors within and external to the state apparatus and provided they can control the ritualized symbolic actions, they can also constrain the meanings. It follows that in an atmosphere of calamity and urgency, those who control perceptions about what caused the crisis and what might resolve it, will tend to gain politically. Therefore, the construction of events under the rubric of a ‘crisis’ “creates a self-binding dynamic,” since the act of characterization is rhetorical and lends itself to semantic, or sanitized, descriptions.

The apparent Deep State machinations between the United States and China vying for influence and control over New Zealand and Australia are reminiscent of the Netflix series Secret City, set in Australia’s capital city, Canberra. In Secret City, journalist Harriet Dunkley discovers the dark underbelly of the Australian Deep State where American and Chinese political factions vie for dominance. Their machinations escalate into a 13-minute long cyber-attack involving Air New Zealand Flight 101 set on a collision course with another airliner, and is narrowly averted and covered-up.  The drama intensifies when Dunkley discovers a secret military program that the Prime Minister does not know about, which provokes the question – who is really running Australia?

In the aftermath of the Christchurch atrocity, New Zealand Prime Minister Ardern’s scheduled one-week visit to China was at first postponed and then cut short to a day – April Fool’s Day. Inside the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, New Zealand’s Prime Minister sat opposite President Xi Jinping around a table. The Prime Minister’s visit was timed to open New Zealand’s newly built $50 million embassy in Beijing. The New Zealand delegation offered to advise on the New Silk Road project, that envisages transcontinental railway and highway infrastructure passing through Asia, Europe, Africa and the Middle East.[30] This New Silk Road would generate a land-based economic dynamism to rival the maritime trade of the Ocean Powers and could potentially up-end the US-NATO military empire’s post-World War II containment strategy of China and Russia through military bases that encircle those great rivals powers.[31] 

Not surprisingly – given the forgoing – among the biggest winners in the first post-Christchurch Shooting budget,[32] the Ministry of Defence and the Defence Force gained a combined increase of $1 billion, or by almost a quarter, taking the annual appropriations to $4.1billion.[33] The security, intelligence and surveillance budgets at the GCSB saw a gain of $33 million,[34] while $22 million more was allocated for the N.Z. SIS.[35] In addition to the N.Z. Police administering a guns buy-back scheme costing $163 million, $20.5 million will be spent on new Police radio and communications networks.[36] Meanwhile, at the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet – where the accused-gunman’s email was sent nine minutes before the first attack – the overall budget allocation has dropped by $25.5 million.[37] However, $2 million has been appropriated for implementing the 2018 Cyber Security Strategy and over $12 million has been allocated for national security matters, including managing the National Cyber Policy Office. Is the overall budget cut at the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet a mechanism for ‘dis-establishing’ roles occupied by staff who know too much about the nine squandered minutes before they are called to testify in various probes related to the Christchurch shootings?

Then on June 11, Defence Minister Ron Mark announced the N.Z. Defence Force’s Capability Plan for 2019 that includes a ‘Pacific Reset’, which commits the Ardern Coalition Government to a $20 billion military upgrade.[38] This Defence Force Capability Plan ties New Zealand closer to Australia and shifts the political centre of gravity away from China and draws the country’s orbit closer to the United States.[39] Although this $20 billion military upgrade was embarked upon in 2014 during the Key Coalition Government with $5.8 billion being spent to date,[40] it was under threat with the Ardern Coalition Government’s review of the National Security State Complex by the State Services Commission in 2018.

Conspicuously, Defence Minister Ron Mark does not define the Pacific Reset, although he did state in the report’s opening paragraph:

“the Defence Force Capability Plan … concludes a series of foundational reviews which align defence policy with the Coalition Government’s priorities, including the Pacific Reset, and its commitment to safeguarding and providing resilience for the nation’s wellbeing.”

The inclusion of the term ‘Pacific Reset’ in Ron Marks’ opening remarks appears to signal that elements in the Ardern Coalition Government have got the message – without the Prime Minister and others in the visible Public State necessarily fully comprehending that a coup d’état has occurred. This ‘Pacific Reset’ of New Zealand’s political trajectory has occurred with the national security state now pulled back into the orbit of the United States-dominated ‘Five Eyes’ intelligence, security and defense alliance comprising America, Britain, Australia, New Zealand and Canada.

Pacific Reset: NZ’s Ministry of Defence described its $20 billion Capability Plan as a ‘Pacific Reset’ – language signaling a Deep State political event that caused the political trajectory of the visible Public State to alter course.

The phrase “nation’s wellbeing” has layered meanings, because the publication of the Defence Force Capability Plan came a week after the House of Representatives voted for the ‘Wellbeing Budget’ which emphasized spending on housing upgrades, mental health and wealth gap mitigation measures. Moreover, the SIS’s national security mandate was expanded under the Key Coalition Government to include “economic wellbeing” as well as the traditional security mandate. In other words, “wellbeing” is code for the sustainability and resilience of the super-wealthy oligarchy – that like all oligarchs – can only exist in societies of extreme economic equality.

The New Zealand Government’s institutions may not be the only ones capitulating to a possible stealthy fascist agenda.

Ironically, in the same week as World Press Freedom Day, five N.Z. news outlets – Radio NZ, TVNZ, Newshub owner MediaWorks, NZ Herald owner NZME and Fairfax’s Stuff newspapers – openly formed a press cartel called the NZ Media Freedom Committee when they agreed to trial coverage ‘protocols’ in the upcoming mosque shooting court case.[41] This commercial contractual agreement includes omitting the accused gunman’s ‘manifesto’, any signals, symbols or imagery used by the accused or his associates promoting or supporting white supremacist ideology or terrorist views. Poignantly, this self-censorship is to occur in a criminal case about the slaughter inflicted by a self-described fascist gunman, his extreme views and a horrendous vision to trigger a second American civil war – among other schemes. Therefore, this ‘press cartel’ agreement to restrict supply of news on the trial – as Politico magazine put it in “Why New Zealand’s Press Just Put on Blinders for Its Biggest Story”[42] is a weird twist because is it not fascists whom desire censorship, propaganda and coercion over people who don’t agree with them? Did the accused-terrorist shooter send his email and ‘manifesto’ to these five news organizations nine minutes before the attacks?

Constructing a New State Enemy

Since February 6 1840 – when the 1840 Waitangi Treaty was first signed between a few dozen indigenous chiefs of New Zealand Māori and the British Crown – and until recently, Māori were cast as New Zealand’s perennial scapegoat.

However, during the 2017 election year, the N.Z. Labour Party colonized the Māori vote in a strategic response to the political ground shifting, wherein the capacity had been lost to overtly – and to some degree, covertly – continue casting Māori as scape-goats to resolve the frequent crises of N.Z.’s Pākehā-dominated Ruling Class.

Next Poster Boy Frame-up: NZ’s Deep State scapegoated Tame Iti by casting him as a terrorist guerilla leader to avert looming crises by riffing off movies such as Sleeping Dogs.

The loss of Māori as the enemy of the Neo-Colonial New Zealand state cannot be overstated. The Neo-Colonial New Zealand state lost the capacity to scapegoat Māori partly as a result of the backlash following the Operation Eight Raids of 15 October 2007 that included the lockdown of the Māori community of Rūātoki, that is comprised mostly of the Tūhoe tribe/iwi. The ‘Operation Eight’ police raids unleashed 300 masked, heavily armed members of the Police Armed Offenders Squad (AOS) and the Northern Special Tactics Group (STG), who broke into and searched 60 homes around New Zealand. Rūātoki bore the brunt of Police intimidation, yet only two people in Rūātoki were arrested with Terrorism charges. Those charges were later dropped. The alleged nationwide terrorist network were supposed to be have been training in the mountain bush of the beautiful Urewera wilderness, and thus the police sting became known as the ‘Urewera Raids’. Crucially, the vicious intention that underpinned the Operation Eight ‘Urewera Raids’ was to undermine the Bay of Plenty tribe, Tūhoe, from gaining substantive sovereignty through the return of the Urewera native estate, by casting the Tūhoe tribe’s most visible face, Tame Iti, with a guerilla terrorist leader legend.[23]

Ruatoki Lockdown: Tuhoe regarded the roadblock on the historical Confiscation Line as a provocative signal of the Crown’s assertion over Tuhoe territory.

It turns out that in committing to the Operation Eight ‘Urewera raids of October 2007, N.Z.’s spooks transposed the guerilla terrorist leader legend onto Tame Iti from one that had been used to frame an Algerian asylum-seeker, Ahmed Zaoui, for character assassination. Following his arrival at Auckland International Airport on December 4 2002, Zaoui was persecuted for nearly five years. N.Z’s Security Intelligence Service (SIS) had relied upon a false biography, which had been inserted into the French, Belgium, and Swiss intelligence agencies by Algeria’s equivalent to the CIA, the DRS, (or the Département du Renseignement et de la Sécurité) to cast Zaoui with the legend of a guerilla terrorist leader – as journalist Selwyn Manning showed in his documentary, Behind the Shroud: Truth, Intelligence and Tradecraft.[24] By activating the scapegoat mechanism to primarily target Tame Iti, the New Zealand Crown was saved from a looming crisis.[25] If one tribe were to regain substantial tracts of lands lost through swindle, struggle or stealth, it would have set a precedent for other iwi and hapū to regain lands beyond the jurisdiction of Crown statute law, titles and neo-feudal tributes, regardless of prior Waitangi Treaty settlements. Because the national security state and the Clark Labour Coalition Government avoided disclosing to New Zealanders that Zaoui, a Muslim academic and former politician, had been framed as a guerilla terrorist leader when he sought political asylum on arrival in December 2002, New Zealand’s spooks and their Deep State counterparts in the N.Z. Police were able to inflict the paramilitary raids of mid-October 2007 to save themselves, the Clark Labour Coalition Government and career Crown officials – particularly at the Crown Law Office – from deep scrutiny into what they considered as a mechanism of ‘national security’ state-craft: institutional racism.

Therefore, the theatrical nature of the Operation Eight Raid location at Rūātoki takes on significance since the paramilitary-style lock down – complete with helicopters thwacking overhead – was where this B-Grade News Special psy-op had a Sleeping Dogs feel the most. In the 1977 movie Sleeping Dogs, the plot is propelled by a conspiracy of false flag terrorism, wherein masked gunmen shoot army soldiers from a building, a sinister act that is orchestrated by Prime Minister Volkner and Special Force Commissioner Jesperson to scare the duped population into unwittingly authorizing by referendum a fascist Police State.

False Flag Terrorism: Henchmen shoot the army as they clash with protesters, before being shot by an assassin who draws fire from army to cover his tracks [Sleeping Dogs, 1977].

The Sleeping Dogs audience is privy to who is behind the inciting incident of false flag terrorism, whereas the inciting incident in the ‘Operation Eight News Special’ relied on tricking the audience that the ‘Termination Phase’, or the paramilitary-style raids, were necessary to stop terrorism before it could happen,as if they were conducting a field trial of Minority Report-esque pre-crime. In his book, The Spectacle of the False Flag: Parapolitics from JFK to Watergate, Monash University senior lecturer of public international law Eric Wilson emphasizes the need to identify the battling factions, whom wage civil battles beyond the public state’s legal boundaries.

Follow the Money:
In this sequence from Roger Donaldson’s 1977 political thriller, Sleeping Dogs, presents the golden rule of investigation – a common oversimplification in movies that fail to identify the feuding Deep State factions.

Deep State factions in a Dual State seek to slice up the administrative apparatus, and redirect the accumulated resources in preparation for a looming “season of escalating hostilities”, as the author of Conjuring Hitler: How Britain and America Made the Third Reich, Guido Giamomo Preparata explained in his foreword to Wilson’s The Spectacle of the False Flag.i Preparata stated:

“The fictionalizing beauty of the set-up is that while the fight among the clans unfolds ‘deeply’, i.e. entirely hidden from public scrutiny, there concomitantly ‘forms’ on the media stage, as if inevitably bubbling over, a game of theatrics for mass consumption. The game is designed to sway ‘public opinion’ with the final objective topping off the ‘deep’ victory with popular acclaim.”

Thus, the covert power of the spectacle exists within this perpetually unstable migratory contest, or double movement, between the visible public state political decision-making and the covert deep state factions.i The reverberations of deeper machinations between the Public State and Deep State factions may be detectable in clustered events prior to, during and in the aftermath of the Christchurch Mosques Massacre event. Eric Wilson has found elite criminals exploit the speed of high-velocity engineered events to distort perceptions about the facts of events that overtake “low velocity political deliberation and public accountability”. Therefore, a possible false flag black operation as a crime of spectacular power is theorized as a necessary ‘step-change’, or leap, to forge a fully-fledged Police State.

Spectacular Power: False flag deep events are designed to emotionally hijack mass populaces, politically capture Public State authorities and reset the trajectory of a society onto a fully-fledged Police State path and beyond.

The symbolism of terrorism focused on Māori worked to produce fear of ‘Otherness’ among the dominant Pākehā culture, as Brendan Hokowhitu wrote in his chapter “The Logic of Terror” for a book about the Operation Eight raids called, Terror in our Midst: Searching for Terror in Aotearoa New Zealand. Hokowhitu, among others, located the paramilitary raids on Māori communities within the context of the so-called War on Terror, and argued this global war was really aimed at undermining native sovereignty everywhere to consolidate the American Empire.

This backlash to overt targeting of Māori was concurrent to numerous sustained studies – that have grown in number since – proving Māori were/are targeted for the special treatment of institutional racism. These included findings that Māori would receive harsher treatment from law enforcement for offences, crimes and misdemeanors than Pākehā. Moreover, systemic racism in the public health system and over-representation in poverty statistics added to the inconvenient narrative that racism was widespread among Pākehā/Europeans. The implication was that this racism stemmed from, and was maintained by, racist Ruling Class Pākehā/Europeans, Rich-Listers and the Neo-Colonial Crown.

The Crown had also been keen to avoid admitting that the Waitangi Tribunal was correct in its 2014 finding that the biggest Northland tribe, Ngāpuhi never signed away sovereignty in the British Waitangi Treaty of 1840 with Māori. By implication, the Waitangi Tribunal’s finding – in effect – meant that none of Waitangi Treaty chiefs ceded sovereignty to Queen Victoria. Instead, they thought they were conferring the right to appoint a governor to rule over Pākehā/European settlers.

In losing the capacity to overtly blame, target and distance Māori – the Pākehā-dominated Ruling Class not only lost a scapegoat mechanism it had been exercising since 1840. The Neo-Colonial State lost its staple internal enemy that the national security state needed to justify its budgets. This loss threatened its participation in the resourcing-consuming ‘Five Eyes’ Echelon surveillance apparatus, the U.S.-NATO military empire and the global imperialist regime change projects that serve the West’s white supremacist super-rich capitalist coalitions’ perceived need for rampant capital accumulation to stay ahead of their oligarchic rivals from Russia, Asia, Africa and South America. Because Neo-Colonialist system is really a track-laying vehicle for the construction of techno-feudal states that are intended to be governed by totalitarian super-states, those smaller units need to first be transformed into Police States. As Naomi Wolf pointed out in her 2007 book, The End of America, there are ten components required to construct a Police State. These include: (1) Invoking an external and internal threat; (2) Establishing secret prisons or a gulag; (3) Developing a paramilitary force; (4) Surveilling ordinary citizens; (5) Infiltrating citizen groups; (6) Arbitrarily detaining and releasing citizens; (7) Targeting key individuals; (8) Restricting the press; (9) Casting criticism as ‘espionage’ and dissent as ‘treason’; and (10) Subverting the rule of law.”

The massacre in Christchurch has raised the status of immigrant ethnic populations, or ‘Others’ – particularly Muslims – and even caused the Prime Minister to declare New Zealand had zero tolerance for racism, as well as violent, hateful racial attacks. But, making a declaration does not change the fact that the Crown, Councils and Corporate boards still practice stealthy racism, since they continue a covert war to take more Māori ancestral land for development than they return, or coerce Māori to sell by maintaining dominance over the cash scarce/credit abundant monetary system, the lions share of resources, technologies and institutions and a persistent cultural prejudice against indigenous autonomy. Therefore, the Deep State network operating within the national security state, the corporate apparatus and among their foreign-based counterparts had every reason to construct a new common enemy: the working class white supremacist.

Perhaps Tarrant’s cover required a low-rent approach, a white supremacist mass shooter persona and a script that didn’t make it too hard for the world’s national security blankets – ‘the news’ – to amplify, without having to explain difficult devilish details. For instance, the manifesto attributed to ‘Tarrant’ claims he is a Navy Seal graduate, trained in “gorilla [sic] warfare” and the U.S. armed forces top sniper, with over 300 confirmed kills. The accused gunman’s selection of N.Z. for a mass shooting may be a ‘tell’ or sign of a black propaganda psy-op, since the gunman’s ‘manifesto’ had geopolitical aims that suggest it might have been authored by Deep State scriptwriters. ‘Tarrant’ – who hates white Muslim coverts most – envisaged a balkanization of the United States along racial, cultural and political lines through the issue of firearms ownership that he hoped would spark a second American civil war to reduce the capacity of the superpower to project power globally. (It may result in the construction of a regional super-state that super-cedes the United States, or ‘A New World Order’)[31]. The manifesto’s geo-strategic dark ambitions may be a ‘tell’ that a legend was overlaid upon ‘Brenton Harrison Tarrant’ to create a phantom identity and behind that identity is a Deep State team,[32] who encoded the ‘manifesto’ with a revolutionary vision to trigger a violent consolidation to a multi-decade ‘strategy of tension’ in play since the JFK Assassination.[33]

The uncanny timing live-fed massacre that went viral on social media ahead of the March 27 passage in the European Parliament’s Strasbourg session of ACTA2, a legislative move which has paved the way for a Europe-wide upload filter on internet content.[42] The European Union is now obliged to fund an AI super infrastructure that will automatically censor online content before it is posted”. Moreover, the Christchurch mass shooting resulted in a meet-up between Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, French President Emmanuel Macron – who faces sustained dissent from the Yellow Vests movement – with tech giants such as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg at a summit, dubbed ‘Christchurch Call’, on May 15 in Paris. There at Elysee Palace, an accord to address internet ‘extremism’ including terrorist content was initiated between Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Daily Motion and Qwant, as well as 17 governments – Australia, Canada, the European Commission, France, Germany, Indonesia, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Jordan, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Senegal, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. Notably, the United States did not sign the accord, since issues would arise with endorsing algorithm regimes conflicting with 1st Amendment free speech rights. Therefore, under the cover of stopping the distribution of extremism and terrorist content online, the working class white supremacist’s terrorism video and extremist ‘manifesto’ have paved the way for internet censorship measures that the governments and transnationals whom comprise the US-NATO military empire have struggled for years to justify, get passed or agree to implement.

It is, therefore, fascinating to note that in the metadata post-Christchurch attacks, the media coverage of white supremacists has avoided focusing on the most cohesive, well-resourced and dangerous minority cohort of white supremacists – the Pākehā Rich Lister oligarchy. In other words, the top 10th percentile of the ‘One Percent’ cohort of New Zealand’s Neo-Colonial Ruling Class whom exercise oligarchic wealth defense through their professional army of lawyers, accountants, bankers, politicians and friends in the national security state – whom together ensure that Māori do not rival their stealthy Neo-Colonial power structure. The Pākehā Rich Lister oligarchy’s control over strategic resources of New Zealand belies an economic and political oligarchic system that screams of institutional racism, wherein their huge economic wealth is translated into political power that ensures Māori do not regain ancestral lands that are either large in size, or symbolically important enough to be an affront to the Ruling Pākehā cultural psyche, or would prove strategically catastrophic to their cartelized big business interests.

Sweeping Facts Under a Parliamentary Carpet?

The Christchurch Mosques Massacre of 15 March 2019 may have been a U.S. Deep State-sponsored false flag reset to pull New Zealand back into the U.S.-NATO Empire’s orbit and away from China’s expansionism in the Pacific. Prior to the Christchurch attacks, there were numerous warnings sounded about New Zealand being vulnerable to interference from state actors, particularly China, whom were viewed as threats to N.Z.’s partnership in the ‘Five Eyes’ military alliance with America, Australia, Canada and Britain. The apparent Deep State machinations between the United States and China vying for influence and control over New Zealand are reminiscent of the Netflix series Secret City, set in Australia’s capital city, Canberra.

If the official story about shooter ‘Brenton Tarrant’ acting alone is to be believed, this Australian national uncannily caught the entire country’s Police Special Squads off-guard as they trained in a hospital in a southern Christchurch suburb, while the Army’s counter-terrorism snipers were effectively out of range – target practising with their Australian and Asian counterparts outside the city. Meanwhile, a low-level flying training exercise involvng the Royal N.Z. and U.S. Air Force had transformed the entire South Island of New Zealand into a “simulated hostile environment”. The concidence of three training exercises occurring while the shooters inflicted his carnage may have been the modus operandi used by American-led Deep State actors to take the training exercises ‘live’, since training exercises ‘going live’ are a key sign of a false flag black operation. The training exercises appear to have been embedded with metaphor to symbolically signal that an American-led Anglo-Saxon Deep State network could turn the other half of the country – the North Island – into real world hostile environments beyond the shooting ranges to inflict mass carnage, trauma and fear, and overwhelm triage life support systems with collaterally damaged causalities – if ‘necessary’. Conspicuously, in the aftermath of the Christchurch Mosques Massacre, New Zealand’s defence budget has increased by $1 billion, or by almost a quarter, taking the annual appropriations to $4.1billion, while other security, intelligence and surveillance budgets have also increased.

In addition to weaponizing the dimension of space, the alleged ‘lone wolf’‘ shooter also weaponized time by sending his manifesto via email to the prime minister’s office, and 70 others recipents, nine minutes before he inflicted his carnage. No one rang the Police during those nine ticking countdown minutes – despite the fact that it was possible to quickly work out the targeted mosques’ locations from the manifesto. Because this darkly innovative head-start smells like the manifesto was a Trojan Horse scenario – since the signalled attack still went ‘live’ – its embedded message communicates the need to drill for terrorism readiness. The striking key finding is that ‘Tarrant’ – whether wittingly or not – has actually gained the capitulation of the Government, the political opposition and the news media – since all of these email recipients have participated in the Police’s cover-up of the Christchurch attack’s central terrible truth: no one need have died.

Christchurch Decoded? A ‘Lone Gunman’ – or a Stealthy Coup D’état in Slow in Motion?

Decoding a Possible False Flag Attack and Coup D’état in Slow Motion Behind the Christchurch Mosques Massacre

Steve ‘Snoopman’ Edwards is a New Zealand-born Pākehā (of European descent) who edited news and current affairs for fourteen years at indigenous broadcaster, Māori Television. For his thesis entitled, “It’s the Financial Oligarchy, Stupid” he applied an event clustering technique originally designed for deciphering naval submarine intelligence reports, to news reportage on the Bank Bailouts of 2007 and 2008, since he reasoned that élites are like submersibles who disappear in waters with unclear motives. Since gaining First Class Honours, he has sharpened his attunement to élite-élite communications, the codified language of metaphor-laden events and subtle élite hostage postings concealed in public rituals. He writes on Snoopman News.
