    Allessandro Kauffmann and Aline Moura in another video

    We coulnd’t see the island” – perhaps this is the cancelled video ^^ you get the impression that the smoke plume was generated at the edge of the island, not the Crater! [from 2:16 in the video]

    These Brazilian “bucket list tickers-off” only gave one interview – The Project.

    Here’s the “proof” they went…

    and here’s another occasion tweeter, roped into upload at…yes you’ve guessed, 2:21PM as they flee… could be Schade’s mom.

    Someone who sees through the drill format

    note the duping witness at 2:48

    and an “expert” given an easy ride on TV – he hints that perhaps water getting into the magma could create a plume of steam. Hmmmm
    Lots of talk of an [obviously huge] explosion which nobody seems to have heard

    Someone who sees through the drill format

    The “MAG UGLY TRUTH” video is quite interesting despite the incessant rants urging viewers to “Wake up”.

    It is noteworthy that Mag Bitter Truth has a critical attitude that some Fakeologists currently seem to lack completely, and that before was a common trait for FAK members. Today one needs to argue in legth to even justify investigating this type of suspect event.

    Mag Bitter Truth makes some good points in his video that might be worth to keep in mind:
    • white smoke is hard to explain and seem artificial (water wapor experts say, but thenagain their trustworthyness is nill as they aliken volcano eruptions with underwater nuclear tests no-one has ever observed)
    • smartphone filming the eruption has black screen (lol)
    • very reduced amount of live footage much like on 911
    • live footage from White Island looks staged and prerecorded with scenic and layered background, could be prerecorded which clearly fit media-fakery staging
    • no melted lava

    Michael Schade picture of tourists leaving White Island

    Michael Schade picture of tourists leaving White Island’s moon-like surface, fleeing the towering blast of ash and scalding steam… This scene could be part of pre-fabricated imagery produced in a studio setting with a scenic background


    Schade black phone screen not recording
    The black screen of death supposedly filming the White Island white smoke from the volcano with no pixels to show for the phone being turned on, even less so recording film. This clearly is a staged video where the phone we see in the footage actually had nothing to film…

    The White Island MSN media coverage relies heavily on Michael Schade pictures and film. Schade’s imagery is suspect of being staged and prerecorded for the NZ volcano aftermath and this would be why we see so many timestamps in various press photos.

    Schade just can’t stop talking about exacting time and timestamps, completely missing the event itself where several people supposedly died – some maybe even captured on Schade’s camera phone.

    Liars commonly are very adamant about their story being true so it is quite normal for someone who did not take photos live to try his best convince the audience he was indeed doing live shots and thereby focus too much on such a trivial aspect of an event that is about human tragedy and the incredible forces of nature. Not if a photo has a 2:11 PM timestamp or not,,,

    Out of Michael Schade’s 6 tweets about the White Island volcano eruption, time is central to most of his posts which is in line with all this imagery being pre-produced and released with caution making sure everyone believes the images are “live”. The live-meme clearly is a weakness for both this PsyOp, and for volcanoes in general.

    Here’s a Kauffmann video released Thursday December 12 – hmmm
    And what video maker will show the time on his wristwatch – as it to prove what time it is. Like you do, lol! Seems like he knows something is about to happen! At 0:14 the time is 1:49 PM. Just fancy that!
    I get the feeling if one stabilised the deliberately shaky “amateur” video [a hoax staple] one might see no smoke development.
    And WTF is that at 0:47? And at 2:06
    It all looks very very fake.

    “Oh look, the [deliberately distressed] helicopter. Nice dubbing. Yes, no smoke plume development.

    Make no mistake, this is a very important psy-op.

    BTW Kauffmann’s video was uploaded to youtube [for the MSM] then deleted almost immediately -yet another psy-op technique.

    As Unreal notes, all the attention to TIMES by Schade [see also Kauffmann’s video] points to a very cheap script, like an airport bookseller’s detective novel where everything has to “add up” for the crime to be solved.

    Make no mistake, this is a very important psy-op.

    Indeed Xileffilex – this really is worthwhile Fakeology*.

    A very important aspect of this particular hoax is the volcano setting and the hoaxers ability to predict the eruption and fake it realistically both in pre-produced press material and its “live” unfolding and aftermath.

    Pre-planning is clearly at play in the White Island volcano media-hoax which seriously question how real this particular volcano eruption actually is. At the least the hoaxers are able to fake an eruption in an existing volcano location.

    The White Island volcano was equally “active” in 1914 with 11 fatalities which necessarily will need to be verified now that this site is used 105 years later for hoaxing deaths and natural events in 2019.

    White Island’s killer landslide, 11 taken without a trace [1914]

    View of White Island crater looking north-west from crater margin (ca 1850)

    *furthermore, the silence from the initial gatekeepers on Discord is telling. Native NZ expert Exoterick is nowhere to be found now assuring all other FAK members how he lives close by, his father surfed there etc etc etc – all authority fallacies and most probably lies as all agents know someone-who-knows-someone, if it isn’t their wives, children or parents…


    A BBC clip shows Shaimaa Khalil in a plane observing the convenient “exclusion zone” [i.e. don’t get too close to see what’s going on, not because of safety considerations]
    Note the spliced cuts and zooms. And again, little development of what must be steam.

    How this effect was created is unknown.

    Now for more suspense…. in case it “erupts” again [no chance….]
    It’s now or never “to bring back the 8 bodies” before they get entombed in ash [or steam…] according to “hero pilot” and insider Mark Law **
    [four videos]
    “The deceased are definitely [unclear] deceased, I went to er nearly all of them and physically er you know felt them and shook them and er and er just looked at them for the response you know erm of life. They could have been in the latter stages of [unclear] completely unconscious, close to death, it was hard to know why I didn’t do any primary survey because it was just a matter of getting round to the to them mass of people, really. And. Er there was a lot of breathing issues for a lot of the folks that were alive but definitely the people that I touched they were either nearly deceased or definitely deceased…. and then Tom went down later and actually moved his [Hayden’s] body erm out of the steam bed and lay him to rest in a sort of more in a sort of nicer position…I’m sad about the other folks that didn’t make it. and really .broken about the people that were having such an awesome time now have horrendous injuries to deal with.


    Note the amazing development of steam and smoke at 1:57 – completely at odds with other images.

    see also the second video
    he just wanted to get there and talk to them and comfort them… we know where they all are…Hayden’s a really really good friend of ours…a real top bloke, a real ambassador for New Zealand. he’s there and we want to get him home..

    **Meanwhile, a vulcanologist says it is common for ash and water to mix after an eruption creating a cement-like mixture, potentially hampering recovery.
    The same expert says it was plausible the recovery could be delayed by a month or more if perceived eruption risk remained high.
    Bodies could be buried on island
    Speaking before the police announcement, Law said he feared the eight bodies could be buried under ash or begin to disintegrate in the island’s acidic environment.
    “The acidity of the island … always has been brutal.”

    The third video is the Kauffmann footage showing steam plume development from the crater

    Perhaps it was cement dust sprayed around the bay?


    Here’s a Kauffmann video released Thursday December 12 – hmmm
    And what video maker will show the time on his wristwatch – as it to prove what time it is.

    The focus on time is clear indication of this footage being pre-recorded, which means the hoaxers try as hard they can to convince us it’s “live” thus including as many pieces of evidence they can manage.

    Another clue and similarity between Kauffmann and Schade is how both videos are framed the same inside a boat, which has the advantage of making the inserted background look more real as the boat interior would be real and the outside nature seen only in portions, through a filter (glass) and frame (window openings).

    From previous volcano eruptions the narrative is adamant about there being dust spread everywhere which makes the pristine clear, reflecting boat windows all the more suspect. There no dust or dirt on any of the windows of the boat despite the visible thick layer of dust visible on land where “tourists” try to evacuate White Island.

    And not surprisingly, we also see passengers filming the volcano eruption also in Kauffmann’s video, and once again… Black screens of deception as the Crisis Actors in the footage had nothing to film.

    Quite clearly, if you have a GoPro camera or a capable camera smartphone anyone would make sure to film a once-in-a-lifetime event. Unless of course, there is no event to film as the scene was shot months in advance.

    Good find, Unreal. I particularly like the immaculate boat at 6:58 “Glazed in ash”. [cutting immediately to the white mountain on which no ash is falling….]
    It’s not event he same boat which was referenced at 3:22.

    I do now see steam plume development towards the end of the video.

    Lillani Hopkins with father Geoff, seemingly the only tourists on the boat at the start of the video, comes out of facebook purdah to upload a photo of them on the island, but waiting until late in the evening [10:59 PM local time] to do it.

    with the give-away caption White Island 9/12/19

    Dad Geoff uploads almost immediately afterwards [11:06 PM]

    here comes the supporting narrative from mum who didn’t go on the trip “that day” –
    Lyn Hopkins Geoff and Lillani were on the boat that had left 1 minute before it erupted. So thankful that God was watching over them. They then spent the next few hours trying to save the ones who were on the second boat still on the island when it erupted.
    Someone asks
    Shawn Bridge Are you actually there?

    no answer!

    The MSM were able to use Lillani’s upload
    source Sydney Morning Herald
    She had purchased tickets to the island in the Bay of Plenty as a gift for her father’s birthday, marking 24 years since he last visited the natural wonder.

    Here comes the Boston Marathon bit….

    “I went into fight mode, probably for two hours fighting to keep these people alive, pour cold water on their burns, keep them conscious, dress head wounds.”
    While some could speak, others “couldn’t do anything but scream in pain”.
    “Some couldn’t speak any English at all and some were unconscious,” she said.
    Mostly, she said, they were “petrified”.
    Ms Hopkins said she and her father were cutting the clothes off people with the worst burns, many of whom were only wearing singlets, jeans and sneakers.
    She recalled the severe blisters and third-degree burns she witnessed.
    “They were loaded with pain medication for the survivors, but the patients were so burnt they had no veins in their arms,” she said.

    sounds awful…

    one of “her” photos no doubt before the boat “turned back” to pick up all the burnt passengers…

    People standing on the shoreline covered in ash, others madly swimming in the water.
    “It looked
    like a bomb had gone off. There was a crippled helicopter that had been knocked off the pad. The propellers had been all bent and broken,” Ms Hopkins said on Tuesday.
    “All I could think was, if it can do that to metal, what can it do to human skin?”

    Who writes this stuff?

    Geoff’s narrative is here at the NZ Herald


    Here’s a perfect example of the post-drill interview, as a talking head coaxes along an ex-RAF pilot [safe pair of hands] to recite his script which contains essentially nothing. He’s also trying desperately not to smile the whole time.
    James Tayler. A nice touch to wear his helicopter outfit in the TV studio in case we’re in any doubt…

    He didn’t even go to the island [if indeed anyone was rescued that day]

    In another video on the same channel, someone brings up the Pike River mine explosion in the context of bodies not being recovered…..well that’s another suspicious event which needs examination now, the biggest disaster in NZ since, yes you’ve guessed, the air “crash” in Antarctica.

    I digress… back to our sceptic in Australia

    Thanks (Xileffilex) for the link to the full Kauffmann video, which can now also be found on YT (11m44s – link here).

    Thus far, media-coverage overall has depended heavily on videos and stills from Michael Schade first, and later from Allessandro Kauffmann. Both these key image testimonies shot “on location” suffer from many of the same discrepencies and overall have a very similar feel and quality about them.

    Some additional remarks from the full version (here) of the Allessandro Kauffmann video :

    Allessandro Kauffmann black screen
    09:23 Yet another phone apparently used with the screen turned off…

    Allessandro Kauffmann phantom boat
    09:35 What is the “phantom boat” all about ? Is it the sibling of the phantom helicopter ?

    Allessandro Kauffmann phantom boat no signage
    09:51 The “phantom boat” has no inscription and sport military camouflage style surface finishing – even the lifeboat,,,

    Allessandro Kauffmann crystal clear windows
    10:11 Whoever is cleaning the boat – they do a pristine job with windows that remain crystal clear even during volcao eruptions

    Allessandro Kauffmann second phantom boat approaching
    11:14 The “phantom boat” seems to actually not be just one, but two. Kauffmann’s boat passed “phantom boat” 2 on the left (09:51) in the bay lying still, then filming continuously the “phantom boat” 1 (09:35) appears coming in from another direction from the right. Two camouflage color boats without logos, names*, passengers or flags…

    * White Island Tours had names, logos and registered hull ID’s on all their ships (New Zealand Register of Ships)


    At 9:35 we can make out a blue and white hooped jersey on the mystery boat, the kind worn by staff of White Island cruises.
    It’s certainly a strange vessel, totally unlike the usual craft taking tourists out. However I have spotted this flickr photo which shows a DIFFERENT grey painted boat, January 2018
    White Island, active volcano, NZ

    Meanwhile the “body recovery” drill continues apace

    For some reason, the video only shows the same stills

    Eight military specialists wearing protective clothing and using breathing apparatuses were flown to the island on Friday morning to begin the retrieval operation, despite the threat of further volcanic activity.
    Although the rescue team successfully recovered six bodies, which had been located the night before by drones, the search will continue on Saturday for two others.
    Authorities said one of those bodies was known to be in the water off the island,
    but was unable to be retrieved by divers. The whereabouts of the second body has yet to be established.
    “The operation was not without risk but thanks to sound planning and the skills of the specialist team involved we have recovered the six bodies,” New Zealand police commissioner Mike Bush said in a statement.

    [source Independent]
    It’s all BS.


    At 9:35 we can make out a blue and white hooped jersey on the mystery boat, the kind worn by staff of White Island cruises.

    Agree, there are indeed several types of White Island Tours vessels. All of their boats do feature the same type of logos and other visible signage (and hull ID).

    Typical signage on White Island Tours boats

    Gray and White models of White Island Tours boats (Peejay IV & Peejay V)

    The “phantom boats” we see in the Allessandro Kauffmann video are unlike any type of White Island Tours different boats who all feature rather large logos and signage. I’m unable to identify any particular uniform, person or colour aboard the phantom vessel, merely vague shapes of one or two individuals at the rear deck (around 09:49 in the Kauffmann video).

    Two figures can be discerned on the Phantom Vessel, but hard to say anything about their clothing or identity

    All in all, the mystery unidentifiable “phantom” vessels are a curiosity possibly explained as some type of prop ships, film crew boats or military vessels. As the footage clearly hint at being recorded and staged beforehand, it is hard to know what role these boats play other than used for giving the scene a more “realistic” feel.


    At slow speed and full screen around 9:51 in the Kauffmann video the blue hooped clothing aboard the mystery boat becomes clear.

    The aviation “crash” gatekeepers at pprune, stuffed full of ex-military, struggle to reach a conclusion regararding the damage to the Eurocopter Squirrel helicopter prop , said to “have been flying over the island ” *** at the time.

    In the end, the impossible damage is ignored. They are also not curious about the registration or serial number of the distressed chopper.

    Volcanic Air, a tour company based in Rotorua, later confirmed that the pilot and four passengers were unharmed *** and had returned to the mainland via boat on Monday afternoon.

    source Vice and many other MSM outlets
    No emerging stories or i-phone footage….
    Go figure

    Oh, here’s one of the Volcanic air pilots in front of camera

    Depauw’s helicopter (pictured) was badly damaged and has been left on the island.

    Barrow said fellow Volcanic Air pilot Brian Depauw was on the island near the beach ***/strong> with tourists when the volcano erupted.

    Barrow said Depauw instructed his four German passengers to get in the water with him. Two did and as a result, they didn’t suffer any injuries, and were later transported back to shore by a White Island Tours boat. But two chose to stay on the island and were severely burned ***.


    *** slight narrative mix-up

    Where’s Depauw?

    Here’s Tim’s disaster drill narrative

    It was carnage when we got to the centre. It was steamy, it was quite hard to breathe. The gas masks were invaluable. Once we got into the centre of the crater, there were bodies and victims. There were injured in various states obviously in distress. The sole focus was to get those alive off the island.”
    Barrow was directed to one of the survivors who was in a pretty bad way. The person – Barrow was unsure if they were a man or woman – was burnt and covered in ash.

    With help from [Graeme] Hopcroft, they carried the person on their shoulders to their helicopter before heading into the crater to get more survivors.
    “There were a number of victims injured in close proximity.”
    Between the three men with the K?hu crew, Barrow, Hopcroft and two other Volcanic Air crew members that arrived shortly after – pilot Sam Jones and crewman Callum Mill – the seven men carried 12 survivors to three of their helicopters.
    He said Jones and Mill did another “reccy” of the island to ensure there were no remaining survivors before heading back to Whakat?ne.
    Barrow said one of his two badly injured passengers died on the way to hospital and it was his understanding another passenger in a K?hu helicopter also died en route.

    White Island Tours boat on fire in january 2016

    Something clearly is fishy about those White Island Tour boats. The 2016 incident with passengers in shock and horror sure could be some type of rehearsal and prepping for the big event to come later in 2019.

    ” Terrified passengers on a White Island tour boat leaped from the upper deck of the blazing vessel into the choppy ocean off Whakatane yesterday as flames quickly engulfed the ferry.

    One woman, who jumped off the PeeJay V after a day visiting the volcano with her husband, described the frightening moment she feared the vessel would explode.

    Sue Odom and husband Nick were among 60 passengers and crew forced to make the terrifying decision of staying on board long enough for rescue vessels to reach the stricken tour boat, or jumping into the sea about 1km from shore on a wet, stormy afternoon, after a fire broke out about 3.45pm. “

    Very very fake


    Panagiota Stone and Matt Stone on their wedding day. The couple were caught up in the Pee Jay boat fire yesterday off White Island [19 Jan 2016 – article here]

    Very very fake

    Indeed, the 2016 White Island Tours boat-fire clearly has served to prepare crisis actors and operating officers alike. As you (xileffilex) rightly note, there is indeed an insurance side to this hoax justifying taking out a special insurance since the tragic 2016 fire event that today probably will see some nice returns from the 2019 eruption.

    Another benefit for the coming death-by-volcano-fire PsyOp would be the purchase of a new boat that would be to serve for the prerecorded video scenarios. The fact the previous boat supposedly was made of wood further smells of lies as very few passenger boats today use wood… But the burning scenario did call for some additional credibility one would think – at least the hoaxers did.

    In 2017 White island also was explored and digitized by Google Street View which also would come in handy for preproducing film material and creating various backgrounds for studio-shot material.

    Hoaxing volcano deaths and controlling a volcano eruption clearly is not as straightforward as the usual media-fakery as there are many parameters that today escape common knowledge that needs to be attended to.

    The pre-planning for the December 2019 White Island eruption apparently already started in January 2016 if not before. The early start does indicate the attention to details in the case of a volcano hoax which does help explain why this typology of hoaxes so far have been spared from in-depth research, and why so many skeptics are unable to wrap their head around the hoaxing of natural events.

    As always, the answers to any type of question is to dedicate time and inform yourself, not sit and wait for others to handfeed opinion to you directly. Of course, opposition towards research on any type of suspect events will systematically be met with gatekeeper efforts as this is what gatekeeping is. And today we all should be aware how omnipresent gatekeeping really is in the alternative Truther community (article).
