For the past six or so months, Ben Rachinger has claimed to have a deep knowledge of the extent of corruption in New Zealand’s political system. He has prided Nicky Hager’s book “Dirty Politics” for bringing to the fore the diseased apparatus toxifying the New Zealand government and media. Rachinger has recently begun publishing a series of posts of his direct experience in the Whaleoil machine at the centre of the corruption in this country. [Links to all seven posts he has published so far are available at the bottom of this post]
There has been some criticism of his posts. Some readers suggesting they don’t really reveal anything new, others criticising gaps in the information and some dismissing him as a tin foiler.
Whatever your view, here is what I surmise from the series so far:

The pace remains fairly low key this week, and yet our thoughts start racing in a struggle to make sense of the barrage of information we encounter daily.
Many people understand or are beginning to realize that much of the information we receive is meaningless. It’s like loading up on junk food, which is cheap and readily available. After living on a diet of this stuff for so long, one tends to develop a taste for it, and then it’s hard to appreciate healthy alternatives. In time, real food becomes a distant memory.
Likewise, many of those born since the 1980s don’t remember what real journalism was like. We had
– Ceres in Aquarius semi-square Chiron in Pisces
– Mars in Taurus semi-sextile Uranus in Aries
– Mercury in Taurus sextile Chiron in Pisces
– Venus in Gemini quincunx Pluto Rx in Capricorn
– Neptune in Pisces quincunx NN in Libra/semi-sextile SN in Aries

Tarot card of the day is “The World”, signifying the end of a cycle, the final and successful completion of any issue at hand. We have arrived at our destination or have reached the culmination of a long series of events. There is a dawning…
Friday, April 24th: The Moon journeys through family seeking Cancer for the entire day. She does turn void-of-course in Cancer, at 12:04 PM, and remains so throughout the remainder of the day. Try and plan your more and important activities before noon.
The Moon opposes Pluto, 4:21 AM: In our dream state, we are purging the residue of negative emotions. If you remember your dreams, you’ll be confronting some long-held fears.
The Moon sextiles Mars, 8:00 AM: you have a lot of energy this morning and some of it may be really hard to contain. Normally this combination of planets would indicate a good time to initiate some sort of new project. However: the restlessness of the upcoming transit keeps us a bit distracted and off center from our primary aim. Keep your schedule light and flexible and you will be fine.
Labour party associate and cyber activist Ben Rachinger
LF have learned that the New Zealand police have arrested Auckland law student and cyber activist Ben Rachinger following his online admissions surrounding the Raw-shark hack of Kiwi Blogger Cameron Slater’s computer systems and social media accounts. Rachinger is a law student at an Auckland University and is allegedly close to Lynn Prentice and various other players at Labour party rag the Standard. Mr Rachinger has apparently already been released from police custody.
Rachingers twitter account take-down was swift.
LF first suspected that police had moved when Rachinger’s twitter account was suddenly removed earlier today. LF will bring readers more as detail become available.
Peppers Carrington Resort, about the only qualification Mike Sabin has to run this joint is that he can probably play golf, but not well enough to be paid the salary of a 5 star resort CEO
The New Zealand Herald ran another story on Mike Sabin yesterday, all very brief really, more like an advertorial. The story was focused solely on Sabin having been employed to run a 5 star luxury resort. There was nothing whatsoever about the sexual assault charges he is facing, not that there would be because the New Zealand mainstream media are sycophants and frankly can’t be trusted any longer to provide news let alone the truth:
Mike Sabin’s new job at luxury resort
3:44 PM Wednesday Apr 15, 2015
Former National MP Mike Sabin has picked up a job as the head of a luxury resort in Northland.
I resisted the fear and stood up to racial abuse…but should I have?
Last Tuesday 14 April I was sitting on a train bound for Melbourne’s CBD at about 11am. All around me were voices in various stages of peaceful conversation, when suddenly a very loud male voice disrupted the calm. At first I thought it was a one sided phone conversation, so I turned to see who this inconsiderate person was. About four seats behind me across the aisle sat a well dressed young man wearing sunglasses looking straight at the window opposite his seat. In seats beside him but facing the rear of the carriage sat an Indian couple; I could only see the backs of their heads at this stage. The young man began to yell and scream obscenities obviously referring to the couple which alerted me to what this was all about:
