More dot-joining of recent events down-under from Ben Vidgen “the Dyslexic Detective”
NZ experiences a net outage the same day as the knifing which I commented on that morning noting how last time I saw this was just before March 15th when I commented on it in post I made in Feb while up in Waiarapapa. That (video below) talks of how i had observed the word “black swan event” being used suddenly a lot.
Of Carlyle Investments as one of the American corporation on buying spread of NZ Australia food production and critical infrastructure. The video above looks at some of the observations I made on food security following the Dunedin stabbing earlier this year. Talks of why attempt to link that first attack to ideology failed and how Count Down owners Wool Worth have being trial additional safety measures and anticipating greater issue with forecasted food shortages following a black swan event. Follow on from report of Palantir buying up Bullion in anticipation of “Black Swan Event” and John Key Crisis X 2020 forecast of a 9/11 scale event based online cyber collapse. Discuss why it is important we don’t turn on each other and how it even more important Kriss Faa Fooi outline how he will define hate in proposed legislation and protect freedoms of speech, as one nutter does not make a jihad, whatever label that those more likely to have mental health issues than being genuine politically radicalised may put on their violence, and how we need to see these acts as desperate cry’s for help rather than be intimidated by individual who don’t represent in reality any one but themselves.
Attempts to label the May 2021 Dunedin Countdown stabbing an ideological action failed due to a combination of local Police being at pains to make clear the event was in fact sparked by some with previously noted mental health issues and by locals in Dunedin being quite familiar with the Countdown in question having customer service issues which had led local wits to suggest it was only a matter of time before an incident occurred.
Food Security is becoming a worry as behind the scene Count Down owners Wool Worth’s has talked of food shortage and is trialling new security measures in anticipation of issues following a Black Swan Event.
Ironically as possibility of food shortage looms, to ensure Australia’s food supply is sustainable, a national program to protect small and family-owned food producers, improve the health of soils and develop incentives for urban food producers must be implemented, the report compiled by the Commission for the Human Future declared.
“All aspects of the food value chain – seeds, agri-chemicals, processing, retail and production – are highly concentrated in a few corporations,” the report reads.
“Coles and Woolworths control around 60 per cent of fresh food and grocery sales. Kirin controls around 80 per cent of Australia’s drinking milk.”
The report also notes that processing facilities, including abattoirs, canneries and grain mills, and resources like seeds and livestock are increasingly concentrated among a few powerful multinational companies.
“And [George] Weston Foods and Goodman Fielder control around 70 to 75 per cent of the bread and bakery markets,” it reads.

Martin comments: I fully intend to produce some comment of my own on the knifing incident, and have an opinion piece in progress, however, I need a day or two to ponder the puzzle-pieces and await a few emerging details. Meanwhile, I was VERY pleased to see Ben making the connection between the internet outage and the terror attack. Likewise, I appreciate the need Ben expresses to avoid ideological conflict: I strongly suspect someone is trying to foment division using these events. The old “divide and conquer” technique. But more on that in due course.
