Broadcaster Wary of going Under Knife after Hospital jab in New Zealand
Celebrity South Seas talk-back host and radio station proprietor Sean Plunket was anticipating a surgical ablation operation having suffered a minor heart attack in quite recent months.
The New Zealand political commentator’s pulse accelerated when he found himself prominently described in social media as “hateful scumbag Zionist.”
It quickened even more when he discovered that the author worked as a heart surgeon and in the same department in which the news man was scheduled to undergo his own cardiac surgery.
Mr Plunket now rang the hospital and was put through to the social media posting surgeon.
His equilibrium was hardly restored when the surgeon revealed that, he was in possession of Mr Plunket’s case notes.
Mr Plunket’s full name is Oliver Sean Plunket and the surgeon addressed him as “Oliver.”
As Sean Plunket’s tale was unrolled before his radio audience as the show stopper became a heart stopper.
According to Mr Plunket when the surgeon discovered that his caller was Sean Plunket, the surgeon hung up on him.
Unravelling subsequently the surgeon’s own social media postings Mr Plunket’s heart rate would not have improved with the disclosure that the practitioner viewed everything through a deeply religious prism.
Mr Plunket’s antecedents are Irish.
He has consistently voiced total, unqualified and unequivocal support for Israel in the Hamas conflict.
His radio station The Platform which is actually an online streamer fills the vacuum created by aloof influencers in free-to-air broadcasters and the daily newspapers.
These take their cues from The Guardian and the BBC which results in a voguish uniform nationwide progressive positioning on anything at all.
In contrast The Platform rubs the nose of its audience in the knaveries going on all around it, tearing away the layers of professed noble intentions shrouding the underpinning special interests and their motives.
Aware of The Platform’s disdain for chic posturing the mainstream studiously ignores the disruptive vernacular coloniser made landfall in its midst.
Mr Plunket in the bizarre circumstances surrounding his imminent heart operation can now be seen as the commentator who effectively brought to an end this South Seas nation’s cherished view of itself.
This is its perception of itself as a country of religious tolerance.
A carry-over from the Front Page era Mr Plunket’s long career has been unusual in that it has been characterised by his making the news in addition to reporting it, or commenting on it.
Victim culture’s arch critic now contemplated his own victimhood via participatory journalism in a turn of events that by his own testimony was unwitting, accidental.
His revelation that religious activism has penetrated a citadel of his country’s professional structure which is heart surgery indicates still further erosion of the nation’s once fabled reverence for its professional institutions.
On a daily basis he continues to chip away at the established media’s reliability and impartiality by drawing attention to the way in which it receives pay-outs from the taxpayer.
His proud boast is that The Platform neither seeks nor will accept the government subsidies doled out to the rest of the media for seeing things its way.
As an ardent foe of the imported cancel culture and nudging 60 years Mr Plunket in his risk assessment may be contemplating taking his chances and cancelling his own pending surgical procedure.
In contrast his latest and seemingly accidental participatory story will see his mainstreamer peers even more anxious to wheel him into whatever or whoever awaits him in the operating theatre.
Graphics Designer Georgia Shattky captures The Science fall from grace
A revealing moment in the film about microbiologist Siouxsie Wiles is when she worries about funding her laboratory. Then she appears to find hope in a just-arrived message from an institution only to discover that it too has turned her down with a rejection slickly encased in condescending and patronising words that she finds the money elsewhere.
Nothing terribly unusual in this. Except that the nation is in the grip of the Covid pandemic and that one single category of resources that might reasonably have expected to be financed at this time might have been an infectious diseases research establishment.
Professor Wiles goes on to describe in a matter-of-fact way how she devotes much of her time to raising the laboratory funds herself notably through public appearances
The incident is crystallised forever in the film about the turbulent microbiologist MS Information.
It asks more questions than it answers. Why exactly at the height of the fear and trembling about Covid was a specialist research laboratory being treated, well, as if it were merely an irritating subset of a social studies centre?
The microbes of the Covid infection are too miniscule to be seen by the naked eye.
Yet Professor Wiles became the epicentre of a larger-than-life debate with on one side the great and the good celebrating her in gala evenings.
While on the other side of the urban spectrum the vile imprecations of an alternately screeching and thuggish faction using any and every communications channel available to them.
These bizarre multipliers of these extremes in the film become hyper exhibited when building facades become screens-within-screens, literally murals (pictured above.)
This technique enabled by the film’s graphic designer Georgia Shattky (pictured below) acting as the film’s general effects artist calibrates the grotesque scale of the fervour of the frenzies evoked by the microbiologist.
The public narrative now surrounding Professor Wiles instead of concentrating on infectious diseases especially in their mass infection form now became firmly focussed on the microbiologist as a gaudy character.
The film depicts how in an extraordinary inversion of sociology’s hierarchical theory Professor Wiles’ medical status faded the more established society in the form of urban intelligentsia gave her public approval by in short order crowning her Woman of the Year and then New Zealander of the Year.
The film traces how all this made her the target of increasing vitriol for her perceived role in the vaccination and lockdown schemes for which she was now seen to be personifying.
The film witnesses how Professor Wiles as someone who might reasonably be considered a bona fide practitioner of The Science became viewed instead as an exponent of numerous cults such as the climate one and somehow an adherent of “Bill Gates.”
Professor Wiles has to point out that the word “Lucifer” with which she remains routinely coupled in fact is a description of light and its luminescence.
The film portrays her as a counterpuncher; one who gives as good as they get.
Underneath the polychromatic giggly exterior there is a firm upholder of the science resolutely determined to eliminate anything or anyone who deflects her from her purpose.
The film emphasises the way in which medical doctors such as Siouxsie have become components of street-level public debate when in contrast barely a generation ago they filled in as antipodean versions of the gentry, even a localised aristocracy.
The film defines the way in which the words and actions of this so recently Olympian class are now so routinely challenged.
Those believing that their own views on things such as microbes, viruses and pathogens in general are deserving of a public airing nowadays elbow aside clinicians and expects their utterances to be taken as gospel- which they often are.
Battlefield Cyber: How China and Russia are Undermining our Democracy and National Security.
Indications that New Zealand is an exceptional focus for Kremlin attention and at the highest level are justified by sightings of someone in newsreels and photo stills who looked like strongman Vladimir Putin immediately after the sinking of the Mikhail Lermontov and by a Radio New Zealand report to the effect that Putin posing as a shoe salesman travelled extensively here in the Cold War era.
Now a leading authority has stated that New Zealand is operationally in the very front line of hostile global intelligence gathering.
William Holstein’s just-published book is Battlefield Cyber: How China and Russia are Undermining our Democracy and National Security.
Mr Holstein (pictured) urges everyday New Zealanders as well as national security officials to always take seriously any indication at all of Russian intervention in daily life.
The Russians kill people all over the world and try to make it look like it was an accident, or that someone else did it, he commented over the premature death in Wanganui of self-confessed double agent Derek Round.
"Some people around the world may think of New Zealand as an impossibly remote and quirky country, easy to ignore. But in the world of intelligence, New Zealand is absolutely at the heart of the West's efforts to protect its democracies from the likes of China and Russia,” stated Mr Holstein.
This is “because it is a full-fledged member of the Five Eyes intelligence sharing network.
“Whatever the Americans, Canadians, British and Australians know, New Zealanders know it also.”
He added that as the “undeclared” Third World War evolved attempts to crack Five Eyes through its New Zealand portal would intensify.
This was likely to be shrouded and more easily accomplished through New Zealand just because the Five Eyes member had this singular remote and quirky self-image.
Meanwhile the Putin presence in the immediate aftermath of the 1986 Mikhail Lermontov cruise ship running aground while it was under the helm of a Cook Strait pilot has seemed over the intervening years to be perfectly probable given the likenesses of what does resemble the Putin countenance.
The mystery of the sunken cruise vessel’s strong room has never been explained.
When Five Eyes security services sought as rapidly as possible to access the vessel’s safe compartment, they found it had already been cracked.
Russian divers had got there first.
The notion of Putin on his rise through the KGB ranks having some kind of responsibility for New Zealand has become reinforced in recent years with the discovery that he has in fact a working command of the English language.
This reinforces the belief from a prime source and broadcast by Radio New Zealand, itself government-owned, that he circulated here with some ease as a Soviet-bloc shoe salesman.
Then subsequently and testified to by several media sources Putin re-appeared as a member of the official USSR delegation investigating the cause and effects of the cruise liner grounding.
William Holstein’s theme is how the old Sino Soviet bloc until almost the last few months succeeded in convincing the Five Eyes membership that the bloc’s intent was peaceable and that it sincerely intended to achieve this by lifting living standards at home and everywhere else.
These now openly-aggressive nations always knew that this is what the Five Eyes member governments earnestly wanted to believe.
The public mood in New Zealand as far back as the 1960s was reluctant to accept the way in which the upper reaches of its public service had been penetrated.
The split of the New Zealand Communist Party into a Russia aligned group and a China aligned group can also be viewed now as presenting consequences not appreciated or evaluated at the time or subsequently.
The more recent demise of Derek Round (See: Derek Round Murdered Cold War Double Agent & Society Figure Fits Russian Pattern) saw a steering clear for example of any wider analysis of any instigated intervention in the form of cut outs.
Bill Holstein’s long view always ran in the face of self- convincing official views such as the one so recently and so consistently enunciated in Australia about China “lifting out of poverty” a large chunk of its populace and standing ready to do the same thing everywhere else
His portrayal of the old and now overhauled communist bloc as a kleptocracy dedicated to stealing any information not in fact nailed down contrasts with an enduring New Zealand susceptibility.
This is the willingness, ardour, to be seen to be accepted internationally by participating unquestioningly and at any price with contemporary old world moral causes that are actively, cynically, openly and successfully exploited by this same sinister re-engaged partnership.
