Government will not save you from corporations-a Public Private Partnership so advanced the public interest is no longer a primary concern

Published on Jul 3, 2013

Journalists and political partisans have expressed the mistaken presumption that government is a “balancing force” against the excess powers of corporations. This video explains that most excess power of corporations is provided and granted by government and that government seeks partnership with corporations and shares in the profits. This “public-private partnership” is so advanced that the public interest is no longer a primary concern of government. Government is now a for-profit operation serving itself at the expense of the public interest.

The big taxpayer-funded pay rises: $50,000-plus boost for top public CEOs

Pardon my graphic description but here we have pigs at the trough again. A reminder of the corruption our country now labours under. I was raised in the era when renumeration was more in line with reality. The real workers are squeezed onto minimum minimum wage with loud squeals if they ask for more, taxed one third on second jobs, while these shrewd suited apologies for humanity wallow in obscene wealth. Who needs a million dollars pa to survive? And we have the usual lame lipservice justification … “How much we pay chief executives requires a careful balance between ensuring we can attract and retain highly qualified and skilled leaders while being prudent … when spending public money.”

Bollocks. Spending public money? Why the CE in Horowhenua Council recently gifted public assets to private developers Willis & Bond to the tune of $1.86 million. Prudence? Public money? Pleeeze.

The people who “make our clothes, assemble our phones and grow our food” are being exploited to enrich corporations & the super wealthy (Oxfam)

More than $8 of every $10 of wealth created last year went to the richest 1%.

That’s according to a new report from Oxfam International, which estimates that the bottom 50% of the world’s population saw no increase in wealth.

Oxfam says the trend shows that the global economy is skewed in favor of the rich, rewarding wealth instead of work.

“The billionaire boom is not a sign of a thriving economy but a symptom of a failing economic system,” said Winnie Byanyima, executive director of Oxfam International.

Private investors to make a killing From Auckland Transport Projects

A must watch on this topic is Joan Veon’s ‘Public Private Partnerships’:
PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS ARE AN ARM OF THE WORLD’S GROWING CORPORATOCRACY & THEIR BOTTOM LINE IS TO TAKE CONTROL OF THE ASSETS OF GOVERNMENT … JOAN VEON


 

From democrats.org.nz

Labour buddies Phil Twyford and Phil Goff have unleashed a stampede of financial pariahs who will be jostling for a share of the profits from financing the $28 billion in Auckland transport projects they jointly announced on Thursday.

Despite having promised before the election to stop the Public Private Partnership schemes of the previous National government, this latest announcement goes even further down the road of privatising new assets.

The new transport projects will be financed by combination of PPPs and Crown Investment Partners, a government owned PPP scheme in disguise, “which is all about introducing outside capital and attract[ing] co-investment from the private or other sectors”.

Labour used to be the party for the workers but it has just proved it really has turned into a party that shovels taxpayer money into the pockets of the rich, the overseas banks, and the international money shufflers. 

Their big profits will be coming straight out of taxpayer’s pockets, who will effectively rent the new transport facilities, having to pay for the construction of the projects and a premium for the lender’s profits.

EXPONENTIAL RATES INCREASES, SOCIALIST COUNCILS, DEBT-BONDAGE AND SERFDOM IN NZ – an exposé by Dr Naomi Jacobs

From Dr Naomi Jacobs

“I decided to write the book following my initial shock in reading the New Zealand Herald, November 3, 2012, article, Kaipara rates rebellion grows,’ about the huge, extortionate 40% property rates/tax increases being imposed by Kaipara District Council on ratepayers in New Zealand.

After an extensive study of Marxism/Socialism/Communism over many years – upon reading the article, it immediately became plain to me that what was happening to Kaipara citizens and ratepayers was not only unique to New Zealand – but was part of a global plot now taking place in all countries planned many years ago by the British Fabian Society.

Basically, I believe, Kaipara District Council is being insidiously used as a “test case …”

PM Ardern reminded world leaders at Buckingham Palace recently that PEOPLE are the most important thing in the world, while back home 43K+ sleep in cars, garages & on the street

Touted as a ‘proud moment’ Prime Minister Adern is being praised for wearing a korowai in Buckingham Palace, pictured in the Guardian article talking with the Queen of England. Is it really a proud moment though? Yes the korowai is indeed beautiful as also is the Māori culture, but I am remembering the ongoing treachery & oppression for centuries by the Crown and what they have done to indigenous people not only here but world wide. The Queen currently lays claim to one sixth of the planet & in her grandmother’s era it was boasted of Great Britain,  there was so much of it, the empire on which the sun never sets“.  They reserve these token ‘cultural’ displays for the fawning media and the public who never read our real histories. The Crown took the bulk of Māori land via the ‘Land Taking Court’, (a must read) and banned the language, relegating Māori to these token displays reserved for special occasions only.  Gut a people to the bone then cherry pick a few items that will serve for opening & closing occasions of pomp & ceremony. And here, the time worn tradition continues, while they drink toasts to the Queen’s large acquisition, the Commonwealth (common wealth?) thanks to her Grandmother Victoria, and Jacinda trots out the beautiful Māori proverb about what NZ suddenly now counts  as the most important thing in the world? – ie ‘it is people, it is people, it is people’ … really? …  back home as she speaks, 43K+ sleep on the streets, in garages and in cars.

A  proud moment indeed!!

A homeless NZ family … does the NZ government/corporation REALLY think people are the most important thing in the world?

OK it was under the Nats’ watch we acquired the dubious status of most homeless in the developed world, however if you look closely these politicians are all of the same ilk basically, same bird, different wings. Jacinda may not have created this huge new chasm between and rich & poor in NZ courtesy of Rogernomics, but she stands here as representing it and if you stand back it really is breathtakingly hypocritical. No matter how good the politician’s intentions, the globalists’ shadow government will always have their way.  They’ve just all but gifted one tenth of our South Island to wealthy people offshore. Also as we speak, a bevy of international bankers have their eye on Fiordland & I doubt it’s about possums and ferrets.

Note also, the Queen has just announced she wishes Charles to succeed her on the throne promising a ‘sustainable’ future (that global government catch phrase again). This is a good time to read The Sustainable Prince by Joan Veon who studied and wrote at great length about global governance, one world government aka Agenda 21/30. The end game is world control, not the happy global community you are being led to believe.

Jacinda Ardern wears Māori cloak to Buckingham Palace

New Zealand leader in Kahu huruhuru praised as proud moment for female leaders and Māori worldwide

New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern has caused a stir with a striking image of her walking the halls of Buckingham Palace swathed in a traditional Māori cloak during this week’s Commonwealth heads of government meeting.

The prime minister wore a Kahu huruhuru; a Māori cloak adorned with feathers and bestowed on chiefs and dignitaries to convey prestige, respect and power, said Mark Sykes, guardian of Māori special collections at Te Papa, the national museum of New Zealand.

Sykes said Ardern’s choice was a proud moment for Māori around the world. “Cloaks are worn for warmth, protection and to symbolise your status and mana [power],” said Sykes. “I think it shows how she is portraying herself as a leader of Māori, of all of New Zealand, of everyone. It made me feel proud. She wore it well. She wore it so well.”
