Update on Stuff's Community Newspapers”

Geoff from Bay of Islands

A while ago I did a post about who owns the USA media and what the situation is here in New Zealand.I won't write the whole thing again but here are the links to the relevant sites (1) USA www.businessinsider.com.au... (2) New Zealand vjmpublishing.nz... The New Zealand link has a lot of other very interesting material
I am writing this one as a result of what I found in Neighbourly today, posted 2 days ago, namely “Update on Stuff's Community Newspapers”
Neighbourly Team

The government has advised that non-daily publications are not considered essential services under the news and media designation, while the country is in Covid-19 alert level 4.” I personally have long held the view that “non-daily publications”of the likes of “The Bay Comical,” “The Whangarei Misleader,” and others are “ not (considered) essential services under the news and media designation (or any other designation for that matter) while the country is in Covid-19 alert level 4. (or in any other state)” Then lo and behold, the following appeared in Neighbourly TODAY!

.Who has heard the old saying, When one door (The Bay Comical) closes, try to get in through a window(Sunday Star Times). Readers MAY be interested in knowing who owns STUFF, Neighbourly,The Bay Comical, Sunday Star Times and others.Have a read of the “ Update on Stuff's Community Newspapers” Now Neighbourly is owned by STUFF and one or the other owns all the publications listed. Stuff is a New Zealand news media website owned by Stuff Ltd, a subsidiary of Australian company Nine Entertainment Co. Moving right along, you MAY wonder “Who owns Nine Entertainembt Co.? Well here is explanation .www.smh.com.au... Yes, Nine Entertainment merged with Faikfact media.

So, to a cynical soul like me, the sudden appearance of Sunday Star Times, blowing its strumpet, is nothing more than an attempt by by STUFF's?Neighbourly's ? owners to replace at least some of their lost advertising revenue by flogging, or trying to flog, $49.40 ,3 month subscriptions to the Sunday Star Times. I wondered why, of all the publications owned, The Sunday Star Times got the nod, WELL, the Sunday Star Times APPEARS to be the only NATIONAL publication and so, theoretically at least, it should/could get the most subscribers.

In closing, I have to wonder how long this post will stay on Neighbourly before it is censored/removed despite the fact that it would be a breach of my rights to freedom of speech and freedom of expression. We really do live in an age of DISTraction (look over here, not over there) and DISinformation both of which, hopefully,are soon coming to an end with the demise of the Lamestreet, fake news media and the frational reserve scam banking system.

Our sweet pea seeds send out, April issue and Get Growing

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

Dear neighbours and NZ Gardener family,

Our April issue should be with our subscribers now and available in supermarkets and service stations (having been distributed prior to the lockdown restrictions). Whether or not it's on the stands yet is a bit patchy ... but then the incredibly brave and hard-working supermarket staff have quite a bit on their plate right now so I understand if there is a delay! Please, please, please everyone ... don't go out to buy it! Normally of course we love you buying NZ Gardener but right now it's far more important that you stay home and stay safe. (You can buy a copy with your online shopping though! That's safe and I think we are all in the market for something uplifting to read right now).

In this issue we offered to send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who sent us a SSAE. Just to reassure you, we will still send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who is keen to participate. We are just not quite sure when! Ignore the dates in the magazine of when you needed to send the envelope in by - that has been indefinitely extended. But we cannot wait to send you the seed and for those flowers to bloom as by then we will be well through this or even have it behind us. And keep letting us know what you are sowing and growing, send in pictures of your harvest, your flowers or what you are sharing.

We always love hearing from NZ Gardener readers but now when we are all staying apart that connection means more than you can imagine. Stay home, stay safe and stay in touch everyone. For the most updated gardening advice, subscribe to our digital e-zine Get Growing, which will be delivered to your inbox completely free.

Times They Are A Changin'

Geoff from Bay of Islands

A neighbour of mine recently placed a surprising post on the Watea Facebook page , here it is"Ok if you want a puzzle box to unlock for yourselves and the older kids, download Bob Dylan’s new release. Murder most foul. It will fill out some time. And don’t cheat by too many google searches. Well, you can cheat a bit. If you have not got iTunes access it is on YouTube. It is really a very good detective story as well. I am not a Kennedy assassination conspiracy devotee, but interesting nevertheless." I decided to reply because not only "Times They Are A Changin'" but we are also living in interesting times. Here is my reply to his post. Hey neighbour I was surprised both to see the post and to see that it was you who had posted it it.
I found the subject and the timing quite amazing. I subscribe to a number of “alternative news” channels, have no time for the fakenews propaganda pedlars. The subject of Bob Dylan's “Murder Most Foul” has been brought up a number of times recently and I was gobsmacked to find it on the Watea Facebook page of all places.
I listened to the whole song but, sadly, quite a lot of it was unintelligable, and then my ear wife suggested that I look for the lyrics and, lo and behold, I found the whole song here faroutmagazine.co.uk... so I can now copy and paste the bits that were very interesting to me, being a conspiracy factist.
Very early in the song, Dylan refers to “We’ve already got someone here to take your place .” Johnson replaced him.Vietnam war, Gulf of Tonkln ( False flag) and all that He then talks about “Wolfman, oh wolfman, oh wolfman howl Rub-a-dub-dub, it’s a murder most foul” Rolling Stone clearly implies a reference to “Wolfman Jack was a raspy-voiced radio DJ whose popularity peaked in the early Sixties.” My, guess, based on research, is that the reference is to G.H.W. Bush , who is believed by many to have been responsible for organising Kennedy's assassination and whose Secret Service Code was “Timberwolf.” The following comment can be seen “Alas, it is unknown why George H.W. Bush was named for the largest member of the dog family. “ Hmmmmm! Here www.britannica.com... is the link if you don't believe me
Final interesting bit is “Zapruder’s film I seen night before Seen it 33 times, maybe more It’s vile and deceitful. It’s cruel and it’s mean “ Do you wonder why he uses the number “33” of all the numbers that he could use? Have a look at this www.businessinsider.com.au... George H.W. Bush, Skull and Bones
Before George H.W. Bush became the second Bonesman to occupy the Oval Office, he was also a pilot in WWII and served as ambassador to Communist China, director of the CIA, and vice president to Ronald Reagan.
Rolling Stone makes no reference to the “33 times” bit, wonder why?
As president during the end of the Cold War, Bush supported space exploration. The American people have also criticised and exalted his involvement in the Gulf War, notably Operation Desert Storm.
www.youtube.com... Just watch the intro here.
Now, ask yourself why was Kennedy assassinated? Here is a very likely explanation enlightenedcitizensofamerica.com... In Exec­u­tive Order 1110, Pres­i­dent Kennedy, through a slight admin­is­tra­tive amend­ment,  cre­ates the begin­ning the cre­ation of a mech­a­nism to nation­al­ize or elim­i­nate the Fed­eral Reserve and restore the power of money cre­ation to Con­gress as stated in Arti­cle I Sec­tion 8 of the Con­sti­tu­tion. By sign­ing this instru­ment on June 4, 1963, Pres­i­dent Kennedy autho­rized the Trea­sury  “to issue sil­ver cer­tifi­cates against any sil­ver bul­lion, sil­ver, or stan­dard sil­ver dol­lars in the Trea­sury.” This meant that for every ounce of sil­ver in the U.S. Treasury’s vault, the gov­ern­ment could print new money into circulation.President Kennedy brought nearly $4.3 bil­lion in U.S. notes into cir­cu­la­tion in 1963 sil­ver dol­lars.   He was assas­si­nated five (5) months later.  It is impor­tant to under­stand that the enemy needs War to charge the enor­mous amounts of Inter­est which is needed to gather the Money required to exe­cute its agenda, so when On Octo­ber 31, 1963 at a news con­fer­ence, Kennedy announced that he planned to with­draw 1,000 troops by the end of 1963 and all by 1965 they were forced to act.  Pres­i­dent Kennedy was shot by an insid­i­ous enemy of Amer­ica with no name on Novem­ber 22, 1963. Compare this with what President Trump is doing Yhis is also worth a look www.orwelltoday.com...
What about New Zealand?
We are part of the same central banking system that President Trump was slowly, but now seems to be quickly, destroying.
I wrote this recently Here “Reserve Bank will start buying government bonds on Monday, economists say “is the headline from a National Business Review article. I can't show you the whole article
but in case some readers may be wondering what it means this video goldsilver.com... will explain it. The RBA is following suit and this video www.news.com.au... is quite good except for where he says “the banks will have more cash.” They won't, they will just have more digits from which to create more debt out of thin air. Just go to the 2.08 point in the first video and the whole thing is summed up in a few words. It is a really good video Another very good bit is at the 5.12 point., in fact the WHOLE video is worth watching. It tells you the TRUTH. It also gives you links to a lot of other very good videos telling you what the fake street media WON'T. www.interest.co.nz... Here is what the RBNZ is doing. All the central banks are panicing, the end really IS near. This dinarrecaps.com... is a long read but well worth it.
It will be interesting to see what “spin”the fakestreet media put on all this.
Going back to the RBNZ . I did a post a while ago titled “Where oh where have our gold reserves gone?” More on that later.
This www.x22report.com... is what I listen to each day. The last few days' reports are amazing, so much is happening so quickly. I have been criticised for adverse comments about the “the fake street media,” well, this www.youtube.com... popped up over the weekend talk about Google and fake news media exposed!”
I apologise for the length of this, but there IS so much happening so quickly, it is hard to keep up.
OH, don't forget Bob Dylan's “Times they are a changin” www.youtube.com...
