“It is often not known,” according to New Zealand’s Defense Minister Ron Mark, that its military’s “biggest deployment is to Antarctica, consisting of up to 220 personnel and different airlift platforms.”
New Zealand isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, as it looks to set up shop on the continent for years to come. Even those of you based in New Zealand must be wondering why this is hardly ever spoken about, even as the previous 2016 White Paper on Defense stated that it “is a fundamental duty of any New Zealand government to protect the country’s people and its resources [and] to maintain New Zealand’s right of sovereignty in the Ross Dependency of Antarctica.”
I wonder how many of you would expect a New Zealand Defense Policy Statement to even mention Antarctica, let alone devise an entire strategy on how to contain the continent for itself.
“It is a fundamental responsibility of the New Zealand government to protect New Zealand’s people, prosperity, territory, sovereignty and resources; uphold New Zealand’s constitutional obligations to the Cook Islands, Niue and Tokelau; and maintain New Zealand’s claim to territorial sovereignty in the Ross Dependency of Antarctica,” the Policy Statement reads, reiterating the 2016 White Paper in slightly different terms.
“Interest by both state and non-state actors in Antarctica and its surrounding waters will likely grow over the coming years,” it continues. “This will lead to increased congestion and crowding, as well as pressure on key elements of the Antarctic Treaty System, such as the prohibition on mineral extraction.”
“Antarctic geopolitics are shifting rapidly and the clash between those states who promote environmental protection in Antarctica and those who are focused on accessing available resources there is becoming more acute,” Professor Brady warned in her 2017 report. “China is now a member of a unique club of nations, the polar states: those few countries who are powerful at the Arctic and the Antarctic. Polar states are the global giants, strong in military, scientific, and economic power…China has global interests and is well on the way to becoming a global great power. In order to succeed in this evolution it must be dominant in the polar regions.”
Don't worry though, the people have this and can decide for themselves.

It's dieing, not dead. Its influence is still far reaching. You are naive if you think the MSM is less influential than Q and the conspiracy corners of the internet. That goal has not been achieved yet you are celebrating like you are over the finishing line.
This movement is still in its infancy. You want to hit the masses it needs to shape up.
They want you DIVIDED.
DIVIDED by RACE.
DIVIDED by RELIGION.
DIVIDED by CULTURE.
DIVIDED by CLASS.
DIVIDED by POLITICAL AFFILIATION.
DIVIDED YOU ARE WEAK.
TOGETHER YOU ARE STRONG.
