“Everything is proceeding as foreseen…”
“Transport has concluded that light rail offers the best benefit to cost ratio, compared to heavy rail and bus rapid transport, to improve transport in the suburbs of the isthmus. Its business case found that existing transport is already at capacity and light rail is needed as soon as possible.
Auckland Council had included the light rail line as part of its 2016-2026 10 year plan. The Government’s Auckland Transport Alignment Plan has pushed it back to after 2028 despite acknowledging that passenger demand requires it within the coming decade. Labour is keen to begin work on the light rail line as soon as possible and will work with Auckland Council to make funding this project a priority within ten years.
Half of the cost of the light rail line will be met by central government. This is estimated at $680m and will be met from unallocated funds in future years of the National Land Transport Programme without the need for additional revenue. The other half of the cost will be met by Auckland Council.”
(Excerpt from Labour Fact Sheet document).
The motor car. For decades it has been the badge of coming-of-age and the freedom that comes with it. As one gets older and priorities change, it becomes the transporter of family members to school, work, and the weekly shopping errands, not forgetting the all-important summer holiday trip. The private car represents our ability to go where we want, when we want. It represents autonomy.
The car represents everything that the New World Order wants to take away from us.
The document excerpt above represents the NWO intent for light rail to be the mass transit system of choice.
So, how do they intend to get the masses to give up their precious cars? By force? No. By introducing measures that are “for your own safety”; for YOUR advantage, not theirs.
“For a safe and secure future”
Two recent pieces of news here in New Zealand highlight measures by which the switch to public transport will be accomplished. One is the introduction of crippling fuel taxes (additional to the existing fuel tax) and more extraordinarily, a staged “compulsory” recall of all private motor vehicles of a certain age due to an alleged potential airbag safety issue. In the case of the latter, this follows a similar recall of a staggering 2 million cars announced in Australia in February. Now, to be sure this recall is to get these cars “fixed” and safely back on the road. How many of these 50,000 vehicles will actually have the airbags fixed? (there is only one year to get this done!). A logistical nightmare, and I’m betting a good percentage of those cars simply vanish from the roads after failing their next inspection.
But that’s only the start of it. a further 400,000 cars are to be addressed when the initial fifty grand are dealt with.
The affected vehicles in the initial 50K were manufactured between 2001 and 2006. The kind of car that the working class are driving. Let’s face it, only a small number of pre-millennial cars are still on the roads, and those are mostly classic or hobby cars reserved for sunday drives and shows (like my ’68 Bug). Those later than 2006 are generally owned by finance companies (you think your neighbour actually owns that 2017 BMW?) or the well heeled. Even then, the newer cars might well be on that next list.
With regards the aforementioned fuel tax, this is allegedly to make the roads “safer” by improving roading. Yet media reports indicate that the government hopes the tax will encourage the public to use their cars less, or switch their “gas guzzler” (practical family wagon) for a more fuel efficient hybrid (a cramped overpriced golf cart with a 7 year lifespan).
“Increased fuel taxes could affect low-income workers most – those who face longer commutes from outer suburbs and who drive older, less-fuel efficient cars.
If enacted, an increased to excise could see New Zealanders’ fuel costs increase by 3 to 4 cents every year for the next three years. Aucklanders will also pay a fuel tax of 10 cents a litre.
Newshub modelling shows after the taxes come in, it will cost a night-shift commuter who lives in Papakura nearly $13 a shift to commute by car to Auckland Hospital – an increase of 77 cents. A person living in Grey Lynn and commuting for the same shift would pay $2.36 for petrol.
The taxes – one imposed by council and the other by Government – will help pay for improvements to Auckland’s public transport system. Expensive projects like the city rail link will mean trains can come into the city more frequently, there are plans for more buses, and the Government’s promised rail to Auckland Airport and a train to Hamilton.
The Government’s argument for the tax is public transport spending will improve the roads for all users, with Transport Minister Phil Twyford telling Newshub better public transport will benefit low-income commuters.”
You still think these schemes aren’t connected to the Light rail agenda? Check this piece of history:
And here’s the latest reiteration:
The Government has released its draft 10-year policy statement on land transport
A fuel tax increase of between 9 and 12 cents a litre has been proposed
Aucklanders face fuel tax hikes of about 20 cents a litre if the Government’s increases and a regional fuel tax are brought in
Funding on public transport will increase by 46 per cent
Funding allocated for state highways will be cut by 11 per cent
$4 billion will be allocated over 10 years to establish Rapid Transit, such as light rail, initially focusing on Auckland”
But isn’t all this really a good thing? Sure; reduce the road toll, reduce pollution, reduce congestion and all that.
But of course there is a conspiracy at work here. Yes that’s right. When opposing governments (Red and Blue) in two countries And their opposition parties ALL agree wholeheartedly like a bunch of dittoheads that this recalling and taxing is a wonderful thing, that’s technically a conspiracy (To conspire: “to breathe together”). And for “conspiracy theorists” like this author, that indicates a directive from the Giant Eye On The Pyramid.
what this is really all about, as I hinted at the start, is CONTROL.
If one relies on public transport, one can be tracked and monitored so easily. everyone gets a pass. One swipes the pass (or will it be biometrics? Facial rec?) and one gets on the train. Or not, if your pass is declined. I’m talking about Social Credit, the new Reward and Punishment scheme that China has implemented and that is sure to be rolled out across Australasia and many other corners of the map, turning your everyday environment into a potential prison.
Yes, the Ne World Order and the 2030 Agenda are well and truly in progress. And it all sounds very much like a familiar science fiction scenario:
“For a safe and secure society!”
So this is how liberty dies. With thunderous applause.”
