Nigel Gray, a concerned NZ citizen, sent this recently to Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, (link to the article of concern is below … I share Nigel’s concern by the way) —-
This afternoon I read of GNS Science plans to drop dynamite into the earthquake faultline January 2019. I have seen in my lifetime NZ Government scientists or “experts” allow mass poisoning of NZers via mercury and lead in their tooth fillings, thalidomide drugs to pregnant women for morning sickness, electro-shocking of patients in our hospitals (now considered a form of torture by United Nations but still used all over New Zealand), glyphosate on our farmlands despite it being a known carcinogen and 1080 poisoning of our forests and waterways despite it being a toxic poison that is harming our ecosystem. You could of course reassure me that all these scientists and experts knew what they were doing too? I am well aware of your socialist links and your agenda to destroy the environment is very clear when we see your government agents dropping explosives on the fault line and poisoning our much loved forests.
I do not approve of my tax-payer dollars being spent on these programs by quasi-scientists, quasi-experts. Please cease and desist immediately.

From Stuff’s article:
“The Hikurangi Project is a multinational science investigation of the subduction zone beneath New Zealand’s North Island. Specially designed pressure sensors are in place to detect uplift or subsidence of the sea floor.
Scientists researching New Zealand’s largest fault line are preparing for an explosive start to the new year.
In Napier on Wednesday night, researchers from GNS Science and NIWA discussed their latest findings and the future of their ongoing monitoring of the Hikurangi subduction zone off the east coast.
Dr Dan Bassett of GNS Science said 900 seismometers would be deployed between Gisborne and Whakatāne as part of the next phase of the organisation’s SHIRE project.
Scientists would then detonate five dynamite shots within shallow boreholes to generate seismic energy.

COMMENT BY PETER DREW: “…This is amazing!! Thanks for sharing Martin. Having quickly read this research paper my ‘lay man’s’ summary of this research paper is as follows; All earthquakes have a link with a disturbance of the local ionosphere. For most earthquakes this ionospheric disturbance is caused through natural causes related to the sun. However for some earthquakes, they are linked to a different type of ionospheric disturbance which these researchers are unable to explain. The list of earthquakes with this unexplained ionospheric disturbance includes the Christchurch earthquake. I wouldn’t mind betting that the Haiti earthquake shows the same ionosperic disturbance. And the same FEMA officials just happened to be on site at both quakes, and of course there are the strong links of the Clinton Foundation in Haiti. I would love to see the ionosphere chart for Haiti and compare it to Christchurch.”
On February 22, 2011, a M6.3 earthquake destroyed Christchurch, New Zealand (185 dead). VKS space intelligence blamed Project Wormwood at the joint Australian-U.S. Planetary Defense Base at Learmonth Solar Observatory on the North West Cape of Western Australia. Given that HAARP earthquake creation seems to follow a pump and dump pattern—a pumping action of, say, M4.5, which is then steered to the target some time later for a larger thrust—the Christchurch quake was on point: on February 21, the Northern Territory experienced a M4.7, then a full day later, the M6.3 hit.
If Christchurch was a target error for Tasman Glacier in the Southern Alps region 120 miles away, then how are we to read the fact that a visiting American Congressional delegation just happened to be in Christchurch only to fly out 2-1/2 hours before the M6.3 hit, conveniently leaving behind FEMA deputy administrator Timothy W. Manning to coordinate the American response to the disaster they knew was coming? (General P.K. Keen, deputy commander of the U.S. Southern Command, had been similarly pre-positioned in Haiti for the 2010 devastation. ) Four hundred physicians just happened to be attending a urology conference at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Christchurch; they said they “felt like a wrecking ball was being smashed into the side of the building” as water poured up from the shaking ground. And the 116 soldiers from the Singapore Army who just happened to be in Christchurch for a training exercise and were therefore available to cordon off the city after the quake? Coincidence? From the same EU Times article:
. . . just like Haiti was the catastrophic victim of a US “earthquake weapon” due to a previously unknown fault line, so was New Zealand, and as we can read, in part, as further confirmed by London’s Independent News Service, “The devastating earthquake that tore through Christchurch on Tuesday is the product of a new fault line in the Earth’s crust that seismologists were previously unaware of.” [Emphasis added.]
Was opening up a new fault line the objective of the earthquake? In Chapter 4, we looked at connections between Big Oil, fault lines, and hydrocarbons as per the Gulf of Mexico and New Madrid Seismic Zone. Is something similar going on off the coast of New Zealand? Geo-terrorism researcher Jeff Phillips thinks so. In fact, he feels that Anadarko Petroleum Corporation is HAARP’s primary beneficiary. The company’s portfolio of assets encompasses premier positions in the Rocky Mountains region, the southern United States and the Appalachian Basin. The company also is a premier deepwater producer in the Gulf of Mexico, and has production in Alaska, Algeria and Ghana with additional exploration opportunities in West Africa, Mozambique, Kenya, South Africa, Colombia, Guyana, New Zealand and China.
Anadarko’s board of directors is interesting: CEO James Hackett, a director of Halliburton, member of Trilateral Commission and Bilderberg; Luke Corbett, director of Kerr-McGee (owned by Anadarko); Peter Geren, former Secretary of both Army and Air Force; Paula Reynolds, director of BAE Systems Advanced Technologies that built HAARP’s phase 2 upgrade (completed in 2006) and owns the patent (US 7218571) for a magnetically driven underwater pulse generator; and General Kevin Chilton, former NASA astronaut and head of U.S. Space Command after his command at STRATCOM.
Most convincing, however, is that Anadarko’s man, U.S. Representative Kevin Brady (R-TX), was in New Zealand Prime Minister John Key’s office when the Christchurch quake occurred; four hours later, Anadarko had its permit for offshore exploration, for which it will use its ultra-deepwater drillship.
Whereas Italy sentenced six seismologists and a FEMA-like official to six years in prison for manslaughter after reassuring the public that the M6.3 earthquake that struck L’Aquila on 6 April 2009 would not happen, in Christchurch, the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Act (CERA) was passed and the Minister for Earthquake Recovery issued a Notice of Intention to Take Land:
. . . negotiations for voluntary acquisition may run until the end of December . If agreement has not been reached by then, CERA’s Christchurch Central Development Unit (CCDU) intends to take the land under compulsory acquisition [for public works].
Claims for compensation are always possible but uncertain at best. Headlines like “Poverty ‘rampant’ in quake-hit Christchurch” are to be expected, while corporations like Anadarko reap fortunes from the devastation.
Project Seal, a joint U.S.-New Zealand test carried out around New Caledonia and Auckland during World War Two, may have been looking for new fault lines: 3,700 bombs were exploded in New Caledonia and later at Whangaparaoa Peninsula near Auckland, which created a 33-foot tsunami capable of inundating a small city. This segues to three major 2011-2012 quakes and one tsunami in Japan that inundated the entire planet with radiation.

There’s the bank, the car dealership and the tyre shop. The bike store, the booze store and the real estate firm.
Take a walk around the streets of Masterton, the 23,000-strong beating heart of the Wairarapa region, and you wouldn’t go far before seeing one of the near-new commercial properties, the product of a thriving rural economy and a civic centre that takes great pride in its appearance.
But take a closer look, and cracks start to appear.
A Stuff investigation has found 13 near-new buildings have structural weaknesses in Masterton, raising fears of systemic failings in the engineering industry.
The design faults, which were not picked up by council, reduced five of the buildings’ seismic strength status to “earthquake prone”.
Now the owner of two of the buildings is struggling to find anyone accountable for the costly errors.
Faulty design work was first discovered when a private Masterton developer Percy McFadzean commissioned a seismic review of a building he constructed in 2005 to be leased to ASB Bank on Masterton’s Queen St.
The initial report found serious design flaws that made the new building earthquake prone. These findings were backed up by two more detailed reviews conducted by independent structural engineering firms.
Horowhenua Mayor Feyen’s personally funded (to the tune of $25K) independent earthquake report was released yesterday, amidst much discussion on social media and by HDC establishment that the building is still safe! So, okay, it’s just safe enough but only under certain conditions and I look forward to reading the fine print on that. To get you up to speed, this building is only TEN years old, cost $10 million and has cracks in its basement! The new norm by all accounts. This is defending the indefensible. And it was designed by a company that “specialises in earthquake engineering and seismic design”. Now we have an independent report stating the building is rated ‘E’ only and will only achieve a ‘C’ if the Civil Defense are moved along.
“The report, carried out by Structural Concepts, says if the civil defense headquarters stays put inside the council building, it should be considered earthquake-prone.
…there are “potential structural vulnerabilities”, including concerns about the roof. The report also states that the site on which the building stands consists of “unconsolidated to poorly consolidated mud, sand, gravel and peat”.” Stuff
The building needs remedial work to the tune of $30K. Remember this building is only 10 years old people.
“Mr Clapperton says expected costs of the remedial work, recommended by ISPS Consulting, to lengthen the life of the building have come in. The cost will be in the vicinity of $30,000 and will be covered within the existing maintenance budget.”
Remedial work? On a new building? Why are the designers and the construction company not under investigation? Why are they not being made to stump up with the remedial costs? Oh that’s right it’s the 21st Century when corporations and companies get away with all sorts incurring wee small taps on their wrists with wet bus tickets. Fines payable from their petty cash.
“A Stuff investigation has found 13 near-new buildings have structural weaknesses in Masterton, raising fears of systemic failings in the engineering industry. The design faults, which were not picked up by council, reduced five of the buildings’ seismic strength status to “earthquake prone”.

So HDC’s current stance is basically ‘it’s safe as houses, no worries’. There is more however that they’re not highlighting in the discussions or on their website (including the $68 million debt nobody wants to talk about & they won’t open the books).
Firstly, this design company has recently been under scrutiny in the Wairarapa district:
“A Masterton community-owned trust is suing the engineers responsible for designing two of its buildings that were found not to meet the seismic design standard for new buildings.
Masterton Trust Lands Trust has begun High Court action to recover the costs of remediating the buildings’ structural faults.
The company that undertook the structural design of the buildings, Kevin O’Connor & Associates, as well as consenting authority Masterton District Council, and Spencer Holmes Ltd, which was engaged by the council, are all subject to the claim…
Trust general manager Andrew Croskery said costs of remediation work for 61 and 73 Dixon St were significant enough to warrant court action.
“More work is needed to understand the full extent of these costs. If we decide to include the cost of remediating additional buildings in this claim, these costs could run into millions of dollars.”
“Council has sought advice from its liability insurers in the first instance. As a result of the court proceedings we are not at liberty to respond more fully other than to say that Lands Trust Masterton have kept us fully informed of their position throughout this process to date.”
“We will not be able to comment further until this matter is resolved.”
The trust is considering its options in relation to a further nine of its buildings, all of which were structurally designed by Kevin O’Connor & Associates.
Of these, four buildings have been assessed as not meeting the New Building Standard.
The remaining five buildings are undergoing detailed reviews by independent engineers after initial assessments identified potential structural design issues.
Overall the 11 buildings, built between 2003 and 2016, make up about 20 per cent of the value of the trust’s total property assets, owned on behalf of the Masterton community.
There’s that word again … ‘remediation’! Read the whole article HERE.
The faulty design work was first discovered in Masterton when private developer Percy McFadzean commissioned a seismic review of a building he constructed in 2005 to be leased to ASB Bank.
The initial report found serious design flaws that made the new building earthquake prone — findings that were backed up by two more detailed reviews conducted by independent structural engineering firms. SOURCE
Secondly, there are similar rumblings in Palmerston North.
“Investigations into the safety of building plans are underway after weaknesses were found in Masterton buildings designed by a Palmerston North firm. The Palmerston North City Council will ask independent experts to review a sample of engineering plans for city buildings by Kevin O’Connor and Associates.”
So while HDC appear to remain staunch supporters of the said company/ies and continue to maintain the building is safe (they’re filling up the cracks with epoxy resin folks) and a certain disgruntled section of the public are still trying hard to be rid of this Mayor who is a fly in their proverbial ointment … please do consider the obvious here. Would you really employ a company to design anything of yours with so many strikes against its name? Seriously?
So to recap, the $10 million HDC building was built to also accommodate Civil Defense emergencies, but hey, no worries we’ll just relocate them somewhere else! Christchurch ran their emergency earthquake operation out of the library, so what’s the problem? And speaking of Christchurch, remember the CTV building?
“The “six-story office building that collapsed and killed 115 people in New Zealand’s devastating earthquake … was poorly designed by an inexperienced engineer, inadequately constructed and should never have been issued a building permit, a government report has found.”
The report found several deficiencies in the CTV building’s engineering design and said the city council should never have issued the building a permit because the design did not comply with the standards at the time. The commission also concluded that there were problems with the building’s construction.”
“…the building had been issued a “green sticker” following a magnitude-7.0 earthquake in September 2010, signalling authorities had given it the thumbs-up for people to continue using it.
An investigation by The Associated Press last year found that inspection checks routinely used across the world to verify the safety of buildings following earthquakes fail to account for how well those buildings will withstand future quakes. The AP found that building occupants and public officials in Christchurch did not understand that a “green sticker” doesn’t mean the building has undergone a thorough analysis of its structural health, nor that it would stay intact during future quakes.”
You could be forgiven for thinking our building industry and the standards it abides by is being run by cowboys. Seriously. Have they really learned anything here? This company “specialises in earthquake engineering and seismic design” amongst other things. Time for a serious overhaul and back to basics surely?
Watch this space and keep an eye on HDC’s FB page and this ongoing discussion. There are questions being asked there about the previous reports that need to be answered.

It’s been an eventful week nobody could argue, and an equally as eventful time since the very large quake that rattled NZ last month on November 14th. What to make of it all?
Yesterday we heard our esteemed leader (said with tongue in cheek) has resigned, along with a further afield & equally surprising resignation by the Italian PM.
Then last weekend we had Gerry Brownlee advising us to be prepared for a major quake and yesterday along with the PM’s shock announcement, the equally esteemed economist Shamubeel Eaqub (the one of ‘zombie towns have to die’ Agenda 21 renown) is hinting that the housing bubble could be set to burst. They were talking about this back in June. So what’s really going on here? In my humble opinion it all has a very suspicious smell to it.
On the quake topic, a trusted friend recently told me
“…a mate of mine’s husband is a first responder, he was called by his team leader 2 days before Gerry Brownlee got this out in the media, and told to triple his first aid kits and to prepare his family’s emergency kit…”
Note mainstream originally debunked him … until he drew global attention, then they did an about turn. Typically of media, and not surprising in that he has drawn attention to geoengineering, something our government admits is a scientific practice, but deny is happening here.
So basically I’m not taking any chances, as neither we should in light of Brownlee’s warning even. We need to be prepared in any event so stay safe people and get your emergency back up plan ready. Just in case.
If you’ve never heard of HAARP you need to read this. The technology of the powers that be is far ahead of what most of know. It is affecting us all, in ways of which most of us are totally unaware. Educate yourself on this … not conspiracy … it’s well documented. Also recommended to read is Chemtrails, HAARP, and the Full Spectrum Dominance of Planet Earth byElana M. Freeland. There are also many educational videos on Youtube on the topic. There is a HAARP facility in Aotearoa at Birdlings Flat. See also the videos by Nigel Gray on HAARP activity here.

This article was prepared to provide a summary of the contents of a book written in 1995 which describes an entirely new class of weapons. The weapons and their effects are described in the following pages. The United States Navy and Air Force have joined with the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, to build a prototype for a ground based “Star Wars” weapon system located in the remote bush country of Alaska.
The individuals who are demanding answers about HAARP are scattered around the planet. As well as bush dwellers in Alaska, they include: a physician in Finland; a scientist in Holland; an anti-nuclear protester in Australia; independent physicists in the United States; a grandmother in Canada, and countless others.
Unlike the protests of the 1960s the objections to HAARP have been registered using the tools of the 1990s. From the Internet, fax machines, syndicated talk radio and a number of alternative print mediums the word is getting out and people are waking up to this new intrusion by an over zealous United States government.
The research team put together to gather the materials which eventually found their way into the book never held a formal meeting, never formed a formal organization. Each person acted like a node on a planetary info-spirit-net with one goal held by all — to keep this controversial new science in the public eye. The result of the team’s effort was a book which describes the science and the political ramifications of this technology.
That book, Angels Don’t Play this HAARP: Advances in Tesla Technology, has 230 pages. This article will only give the highlights. Despite the amount of research (350 footnoted sources), at its heart it is a story about ordinary people who took on an extraordinary challenge in bringing their research forward.
HAARP Boils the Upper Atmosphere
HAARP will zap the upper atmosphere with a focused and steerable electromagnetic beam. It is an advanced model of an “ionospheric heater.” (The ionosphere is the electrically-charged sphere surrounding Earth’s upper atmosphere. It ranges between 40 to 60 miles above the surface of the Earth.)
“It’s no secret that exposure to high levels of radiation increases the risk for cancer. Nevertheless, showing that radiation exposure causes cancer is notoriously difficult. For the first time, the Japanese government has acknowledged that a worker at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant developed cancer from radiation exposure.”
“The man is in his 40s and is suffering from leukemia. He didn’t work full time at Fukushima the weeks following the disaster in March 2011, when radiation levels were at their highest. However, he did install covers on damaged reactors at the power plant from October 2012 to December 2013, and was exposed to a total of 19.8 millisieverts of radiation during that time … he was exposed to nearly four times the annual dose allowed for nuclear workers in Japan, which is less than half the amount US nuclear workers are exposed to each year.(1)”
“The man will receive compensation for medical expenses and paid time off for lost income, said government officials.(2)”
“It’s not just workers at Fukushima who are at risk for radiation related illnesses. According to a recent study, thyroid cancer rates are 20 to 50 times higher among children who live inside the Fukushima Prefecture than those who don’t. This number is 25 percent higher than thyroid cancer rates reported last year.(3)”
“As the number of fracking-related earthquakes increase with alarming frequency and intensity across the Central U.S., more and more people in the area might be wondering something they haven’t had to before: “What do I do during an earthquake?”
Reuters reports that government agencies are preparing residents in the Central U.S. on how to stay safe in case of a damaging earthquake. Tomorrow, Oct. 15., the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and other organizations are coordinating the “Great ShakeOut,” a nationwide earthquake drill.
A large number of residents from the Central U.S. will be participating in their first-ever national earthquake drill. According to Reuters, “About 3 million people are signed up to participate across 14 central states that include Oklahoma, Missouri, Indiana, Illinois and for the first time, Texas, up from 2.76 million a year ago, organizers said. Nationwide, nearly 19 million people are registered for the drills, FEMA said.”
