Ben Rachinger versus Cameron Slater

Ben Rachinger launched into a tweet storm today that raises some interesting issues in relation to Cameron Slater, Whale Oil and Freed.

I don’t know what of this is accurate or relevant so may edit later.

So only Labour and Nats are going to be on Spy Review Committee? No small parties? Ok, that’s great. Let’s talk about Labour and Nats then

I can do the story with a foreign journo and have it published in a VERY reputable and respected International publication.

This is how I imagine certain people looking at me right now

Alright. So late last year, as part of the talks to work for Freed, I was invited out to the Estate of Mr Tony Lentino, Owner of Instra.

I was introduced to Tony via Cameron Slater. Tony is a genius and quite a mans man. I like him. I’m just going to summarise outcomes.

Tony, Instra/Super Black Racing/OnlyDomainz owner, was the one who bailed out when he was raided and has assets seized.

Specifically, Mona ( wife) came to Tonys house and begged for money for her kids and rent payments. Tony, top bloke, agreed to it.

When I say loan, I mean like $250,000 loans. So Kim had money quite soon after his arrest. Did Kim sort his own guys out? Like Finn? Guess.

Everyone that hates but loves makes me ill to my stomach. Kim is a piece of shit. Nazi regalia collection, snitch…

But Kim didn’t deserve to be raided and have kids frightened. No one does, really. Which is the crux of problem. Why do we allow this? Why?

Everybody mad atcha boy Ben today.

For a deaf guy, I so enjoy some music 😉

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood

And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;

Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!

Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—

I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Frost – The Road Less Taken.

Have a good arvo Tweeps.

Cam and Co. I’ve got a collection of all your socks and puppets. Here and on your site. Grow a pair and come frontally.

Because I’ve been nice to you and that can stop right now if you want to dance. Right now. Your choice, WhaleOil and crew.

.. Seriously, you support racist and mysoginistic pieces of shit. I would enjoy it.

Alright. Gloves off because Whales using socks to come at me. I was so fair to you. That ends now, brother. Think you’re hard? Let’s see 🙂

Alright so this was some of the messages I had from Whale last night.

I am known as someone who knows about network and computer security, in some circles. You get offered jobs. Would you like to hear about it?

I was offered $5,000 and bonuses to hack The Standard and pull out the authors list and keep a Backdoor in. I did not. Now you know.

If that’s true – and it wouldn’t surprise me – it would make Slater a major hypocrite with all his complaining about being illegally hacked and claiming he doesn’t do anything illegal.

But it also wouldn’t surprise me if this is made up to try and dump on Slater.

Lynn Prentice responded:

Should have taken the money. A pile of aliases, a few real names, and redirected gmails. Would need 4 computer hack to hide

Rachinger’s response:

I’m pretty good. Would have phished and social engineered my way to the target. Totally illegal though, Mr Prentice.


Yeah right! You’d access from a 56yo old programmer on the nets and politics since before you were alive. Wrong skillset…


Why is there a redirect to Labour site on your server? Mitigate DDoS? Hosting? Genuinely curious.


But hey. If you have any hard evidence of Blubberboy offering, I’ll show you the system in exchange. Prison calls for him.


I respect my adversary though. His name is Cameron Slater and he is furious a deaf, brown kid is not afraid of him and the DP crew.

And the thread continues:

Lefties need to clean their house. Right wingers need to grow a pair and sort their elites out. Kiwis need to wake up and Stand Up.

Let’s get in even more trouble Ben. Sorry, I couldn’t stand by and let Hager be jailed. I said what I had to say.

I’ve never met Hager. But the thought of the Govt gunning for him like this makes me mad. I’m probably going to be arrested for blowing this

It’s been a privilege/honour to go undercover to unmask them. I’ve given you enough to get started. Hopefully I see the tree from this seed.

“I must warn you that the people you’re speaking out against are ruthless, dangerous and powerful”
Yeah, and?

That seems to be it at this stage, Keep an open mind on this. It could mean number of different things.

Mike C says:

Ben Rachinger is very closely associated with Andrew Little and Matt McCarten 🙂

I don’t know it that’s correct or not.

This comment from Slater yesterday on Facebook may or may not be related:

I’m about done with lying, thieving, disloyal scumbags.

Slater seems to only post links to Whale OIl from his Twitter account these days. He has blocked me from following or viewing his Twitter (that’s futile).

    I kept an eye on him on Twitter after Slater ran his videos. Not long after he closed down a Twitter account and started using the current one. Is he a crusading operative with the dirt and ready for some whistleblowing action or is he just a kid with mental health issues?

      I think the latter Traveller, as I read his stuff I went from thinking what a tosspot to feeling a bit sorry for him.

      The more I see the more I think it is mental health issues. Of course, anyone saying that will be responded to by him as “this is how the system tries to discredit me”.

    Rachinger is being very ranty, and sounds kind of maniacal and panicky and angry.

  3. Is it my imagination, or does that profile selfie photo of Ben Rachinger make him look as like he is the love-child of Helen Clarke and one of Santa’s Elves?

  4. It seems odd you’d jump straight to the assumption that there’s something wrong with him; he seems no less ranty or maniacal than half of Twitter.

    He clearly knows a few things about a few things, so I’d not be too quick to disregard him because you don’t like ‘the cut of his jib’ or oddly, in one case, what he looks like.
