Read Between The Lines: Hollywood Mogul Buys 2,600 Acres Of Farmland; Moving To New Zealand
February 1st, 2012
James Cameron, the Hollywood producer responsible for blockbuster films like Terminator, Titanic and Avatar, is reportedly preparing to exit stage left. While the move for the Canadian born Cameron may initially be perceived as a rejection or denouncement of American policies and ideals, Cameron, who has made campaign donations to the Democrat Party in the past, most notably during the 2004 Presidential election where he supported democrat John Kerry, may have ulterior motivations, as evidenced by where hes planning on moving and what hes planning on doing once he gets there.
From time to time we get a glimpse into the goings on of the well connected. This may be one of those moments:
Cameron has successfully applied to buy 1,067 hectares (2,636 acres) of farmland in New Zealand. In an application filed with the New Zealand Overseas Investment Office, Cameron says he and his family intend to reside indefinitely in New Zealand and are acquiring the property to reside on and operate as a working farm.

As weve outlined before, farmland is one of the only reasonable physical assets to hold in the event of a major crisis, as youll be outside of highly populated metropolitan areas, youll have the ability to produce your own food, generate your own energy, and, more so than your urbanite and suburbanite counterparts, stay away from the chaos that will ensue during a major upheaval.
Liberty Media CEO James Malone, like director James Cameron, has also taken refuge outside of major cities at his ranch on the Quebec border, giving him and his family an immediate international bug out plan in the event of an emergency. Another sign from the elite is that large net worth individuals and investment managers are buying up and taking physical delivery of precious metals, which in our humble opinion, is a leading indicator that large in-the-know investors are preparing for a loss of confidence in the stability of the global economic, monetary, financial and/or political systems.
Congressman Roscoe Bartlett recently warned that Those Who Can, Should Move Their Families Out Of the City, and insiders are worried about game changing riots stemming from the Occupy movement.
The theory that elite members of society know something is amiss is further strengthened by comments such as those of financier George Soros who publicly declared in a recent interview with Newsweek that he expects violent riots on the streets of America in coming months and years.
Furthermore, we have federal agencies and local police departments actively training for urban conflict, and the Pentagon has been war gaming scenarios that include large scale economic breakdown and civil unrest.
The stories reported over the last several years point to a growing consensus among elite business leaders, politicians, and military generals that were headed into a situation that is wholly unpredictable. They know the system is on the brink, have said so repeatedly, and are actively taking steps to manage a crisis should it ever come to that.
Short of the mainstream media coming out and broadcasting to the American people that the system is about to destabilize and to expect nothing short of total meltdown and pandemonium, reading between the lines and watching the actions of those who are interconnected with the money and power structures on which the system is built will be our only warning signal for the difficult times we face in the near future.
The message is loud and clear. Are you listening?
I won’t say he’s not going to use part of the land for agricultural purposes, but he’s likely doing a Peter Jackson or George Lucas, and developing the land for his movies and special effects.
That’s how you make more money. Remove the middle man as much as possible.
He’s Canadian. He’s made a boatload of money in the U.S. Now he wants to go live in New Zealand and farm. It’s his money, his life, and he can do anything he wants.
No lines between which to read.
“The message is loud and clear. Are you listening?”
Yeah, I’ll pick up a farm tomorrow while I’m out running errands.
I think he has survival in mind.
So he is rich, a lot of liberals are, why should that make them taboo to discuss?
If that was the talk of Hollywood, you’d be seeing mass movements from the elites.
Not saying it won’t happen, but I don’t think it’s the talk at the moment.
Yes, if you have a farm, you are safe from strife! Splendid isolation!
Tell that to the farmers of Poland or Vietnam. New Zealanders and Australians would be speaking Japanese today if not for the US Army, Navy, and Marine Corps.
Life is just better when you live in an isolated area. We live in a small community of 100 Whites, 30 Indians along the Yukon; 200 miles on a washed out dirt road to nx nearest place. It’s like going back to the 1940’s, no crime, taxes, cell phones, law enforcement, organized local govt, or problems. I don’t blame anybody for seeking a better place to live.
“I wont say hes not going to use part of the land for agricultural purposes, but hes likely doing a Peter Jackson or George Lucas, and developing the land for his movies and special effects.
Thats how you make more money. Remove the middle man as much as possible.”
my thoughts too. He’s not thinking ‘survival’ - he’s thinking ‘Avatar 2’.
which can’t be much worse than the overrated tripe that was the first movie, btw. Ugh.
So are a few of us FReepers! This Summer is going to get HOT!
It has nothing to do with globaloney warming either!
Shoot, i would by 2600 acres in New Zealand if I could too. It’s beautiful there and BO and the mooch are nowhere near telling us what we can and can’t do every day. I would love to grow my own food. Sounds like absolute heaven to me.
maybe meditate among the ‘Ring’ filming locations..?
‘meditate’, eh? That’s what they call it these days? ;)
I think people don’t realize how hard it is to guard 4 square miles from random marauders. of the SHTF.
It would be impossible.
If TSHF - really hits, then he is a dead man. A swarm of Maori gang members will take over his land. End of story. End of Cameron.
Not sure what you mean by “taboo to discuss.” Talk about whatever you want whenever you want.
an excellent point.
