What China is really up to, here and everywhere…And why is Jacinda Ardern’s government not protecting Dr Anne-Marie Brady?
Communist Chinese interests are reportedly continuing to illegally target Dr Anne-Marie with intimidating and even dangerous behaviour. So where are our strong protests?
Why aren’t the government and the New Zealand Police taking firm action over this issue?
” The Jaws of the Dragon – How China is taking over New Zealand and Australia”, an impressively researched book by Ron Asher, now updated and reissued by Tross Publishing (www.trosspublishing.co.nz) gives a highly concerning, detailed account of how China. Inc., the business arm of Communist China’s repressive dictatorship, is trying to take over the world by grabbing key sectors of various countries’ economies as part of its strategic plan for global control of the world’s resources.
We should make no mistake – we are also in deep trouble here in New Zealand.
While Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is keen to stress we have “a special relationship” with this increasingly totalitarian country, it is more and more oppressing its own citizens.
And we’re now allowing this to happen in our own country? Any reference Miss Ardern has to date made to Dr Brady has been off-hand, and non-engaged with the reality of what is happening in regard to Communist Chinese penetration into this country.
Nor has National been any better. In fact there is no doubt that Communist Chinese money has been directed at our apparently utterly naïve politicians – even particularly at National – under our former Prime Minister, John Key – and at buying covert media influence right across our political parties.
Far from New Zealand being excluded from the Chinese government’s well-known trademark bullying and intimidation, such as its rapid and unnecessary arms buildup; its aggression against its neighbours in the South China Sea; and its penetration into other oceans and continents in which it has no legitimate purpose or presence”, it is clear that we are now very much part of its targeted campaign to gain as much control as possible of the strategic resources of other countries. This has escalated particularly now under Xi Jinping, regarded as ruthless as Mao Tse Tung with his increasingly dictatorial and increasingly repressive demands on the Chinese population.
Has John John Key, apparently one of this ruthless individual’s biggest fans in our country, got a clue what is actually taking place in China today when he says, “I think Xi Jinping’s going to go down in history as a good leader of China”…
What an extraordinary statement….
However, it certainly illustrates the fact that Jacinda Ardern is not alone in the unawareness she is showing of what is taking place both in China, and in New Zealand.
Both the governments of Australia and New Zealand have apparently been very let down by our security intelligence agencies – although Australia is now several years ahead of us in implementing measures to limit Chinese influence, and to expose the degree to which China been engaged in underground and illegal activities.
For example ” AUSTRALIA must wise up to secret Chinese military activities and the threat of a land grab for resources in Antarctica, a report warns…” The Australian Strategic Policy Institute says “Australia’s leadership role is being eroded because of long-term under-investment at a time when other countries are expanding their presence and influence in the region. …“China has conducted undeclared military activities in Antarctica, is building up a case for a territorial claim, and is engaging in minerals exploration there,” – https://www.news.com.au/world/chinas-secret-threat-to-australias-antarctic-claim-report-reveals/news-story/d88ca4389f7d621f5b50d529954de68d
For some reason. I’m recalling the then Prime Minister Helen Clark obligingly repeatedly showing so many Communist Chinese military delegations around our own very minimal defence resources – and taking steps to destroy the combat wing of our Air Force….
Ron Asher’s vitally important book should be read by every politician – and every other New Zealander who can actually read….
For example, how many are aware of the degree of Chinese influence in the Pacific, that this Communist country “has made Fiji an important port for its Juanwang satellite communication vessels which can often be seen in Suva harbour. China is a nuclear power seeking to position itself on what is almost the closest island nation to New Zealand’s shores…not all that different from how the Soviet union used Cuba to intimidate the United States…. And yet John Key insisted that he is not concerned about China’s influence in the Pacific.”
Why not? China’s recent acts of belligerency suggest he should be.
What was happening when on March 2016 , when as Ron Asher points out, 12 countries voted for the United Nations Human Rights Commission’s resolution condemning Xi’s crackdown and detention of around 250 lawyers and activists in the previous eight months?
Ireland, Australia, Britain, USA , Denmark, the Netherlands, Germany, Iceland, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway and Sweden supported this principled resolution – but not New Zealand, where John Key’s government shockingly did not condemn the dictatorial regime of one of the most oppressive, bullying, and environmentally destructive regimes in the world.
Arguably we are continually let down by our equivocating -over-dominating leadership.
Given the quality of his research, we simply are not able to deny that Asher is on target when he illustrates that “much of the problems we now face have been self-inflicted by the cowardice, selflessness and treachery of both Labour and National governments”.
We can probably add stupidity and naïveté to our successive Prime Ministers and MPs’ failure to prioritise the interests of our country.
As for Huawei , all the evidence points to this giant conglomerate being little more than a front for spying by China’s military and security services. As defence analyst Paul Buchanan has stated, Huawei is almost certainly a front for Chinese intelligence. It is staffed by Chinese intelligence services in the army, so it is ominous that Huawei has also built a large presence in New Zealand, having been given contracts worth tens of millions of dollars to supply networks for New Zealand’s 3.5 billion ultrafast broadband network…building the 2Degrees mobile network.
” The Jaws of the Dragon – How China is taking over New Zealand and Australia” is a tour de force of analysis and research. That so many of our politicians – let alone our lacklustre leadership – and that certainly includes our present worryingly naïve Prime Minister – seem to have no idea at all about the reality of the situation in which New Zealand finds itself, is simply not satisfactory.
This book is a must, deserving the widest possible readership. We simply cannot afford to let our politicians continue to sell us out.
The big question is: Why are they?
