Whale Oil bail out

Whale Oil is again asking for donations to bail Cameron Slater out of more legal costs.

This could be avoided by dealing with some basic legal responsibilities but Slater chooses to continue to dig himself into legal holes, then asks for help to pay his way out of the inevitable costs.

Cam needs your money

by Whaleoil Staff on February 21, 2016 at 9:00am

There, that’s blunt enough.

Can’t tell you why.

If you go to other blogs, you probably know why.  If you read some of the media, you may know why.

But we can’t tell you why on THIS blog.

Such are the strange machinations of the law.

Cam has been on the receiving end of a court decision – which we can not discuss, so don’t – and with fines and costs he’s once again looking at a $10k bill to clear.

We decided that this wasn’t your problem, and of course, normally one has to explain in detail why one is asking for help.

So we decided to just tough it out.

Somehow, we always manage.

That’s until last night when one of our commenters, unsolicited I might add, asked if Cam might need some money to pay off some surprise bills.

I more or less explained the same thing – that we can’t talk about it as talking about it simply would incur even more costs, so we decided to keep our heads down and eat some crow.  Swallow a rat.  And chase it with some bile.

But people insisted that this would be something they want to help out with, even though we can’t say what it is about, they either knew through OTHER MEDIA (yep!) or simply find the call for funds enough – no publicly stated reason needed.   Such is their valuable trust.

Anyway, at the request of Whaleoil supporters, please consider helping Cam Slater out, in a personal capacity. This has nothing to do with the blog.

If you want to know why, that’s the whole stupid point, we can’t tell you without risking more bills.

But if you know, or you trust us, and want to take the pressure off Cam, then this is the account that will gladly take your personal gift to him.

That probably relates to Blogger Cameron Slater fined for ‘reckless’ article amendments about businessman.

So what would personal gifts of money to Slater be supporting? According to this posted at The Daily Blog :

BlomfieldAdams1

BlomfieldAdams2

BlomfieldAdams3

Note: Bradbury spouts nonsense in his post but this appears to be provided material.

I don’t know how accurate these claims are but they don’t sound out the ordinary for some of the people involved, from my own experiences here and elsewhere, and from claims by others who have contacted me.

And consider this comment at Lauda Finem, a site that often seems to have a close interest in matters related Whale Oil:

That brings us to the subject of Matthew John Blomfield, a master of exactly this type of con-job. Blomfield and his exploits are of course well known to LF and Whale Oil’s regular readers.

Again from my own experience a lot of claims and accusations made by Lauda Finem are fabricated lies and bizarre conspiracies (I expect that in their next attack on me they will accuse me of faking the moon landings and being an alien).

Getting back to Blomfield’s job vacancy above, in our humble opinion he appears to have omitted a couple of pretty important qualities, traits that any assistant working with him would almost certainly need to possess in order to be successful in working for Blomfield. The first and most important would certainly be the ability to field phone calls from deep-throated heavy-breathing individuals that refuse to give a name or leave a message, and the occasional death threat, without getting too emotionally involved or distraught.

This could be the sort of thing that Blomfield refers to that stinks.

Slater isn’t getting much help with his troubles with comments like that.

LF sometimes say they have no association with Slater but their posts frequently contradict many of their claims.

Slater’s bail out fund raising seems to me to be much of his own making, exacerbated by his stubbornness and the poor advice he seems to receive.

DISCLOSURE: Lauda Finem have made many accusations about me in relation to conspiracies involving business people, bloggers, media, real estate agents, police, the court and chem trails (ok, I made the last one up but that’s how ridiculous things are).

    What did Mathew Blomfield actually do to wo; to make wo go doxing on the internet

    The kids a screwball – absurd, today’s version of “Reds under the bed” syndrome patient.

    wo makes bad legal decisions and asks his gang to pay for financal consequences,

    he does stupid shit and expects to get away with it … he is a little deluded IMHO

      A search though the companies register almost always makes Slaters hate pieces make sense. All the characters overlap in a string of failed business’.

        A string of failed business, does not give slaters hater hammer carte blanche to smash the
        fellon – bad ass and everything connected to that felon within a 10 mile radius.
        that’s what the fraud squad are/were all about but then slater tried to smash them to.
        He is a hypocrite of the highest order always looking for a word with many meanings to get him off the hyperbole hook.
        I DID wish him well many years ago but his disloyalty to his own kaupapa – plan dragged me back to reality. I have never been banned off his site. 😉

      • Vague, unsubstantiated and false if what I think you’re getting at is correct. Slater gets a lot wrong – and that’s supported by a number of court documents.

    I wonder how many criminal convictions Slater has now … and how much of his commenter’s money he has spent on fines and court costs over the past 5 years?

    Surely sometime soon … a Judge is going to stick him in jail because they are sick and tired of Slater thinking he is above the Law.

    “This could be avoided by dealing with some basic legal responsibilities”.

    A bit of irony there surely from you Mr George.

    I see you are still buying the fabrications of Blomfield, and spreading it all around even though you are trying to be clever by saying you have no idea of the veracity of the claims. If that is the case then why publish it?

    Perhaps it is your rather sordid fascination with everything Slater does, and accepting at face value everything Blomfield tells you. You might find that a rather precarious position given [Deleted. Your should know better, but not surprising you try that on. PG]

    You are acting as blinkered and that other fool LPrent and not quite as foaming as Bradbury.

      A typical baseless claim. Your conspiracy obsessions don’t disguise your stupidity.

    If someone’s asking for money. it’s not really a good idea not to say what it’s for. For all anyone knows, it could be for a world cruise for the Slaters and entourage.

  7. In Law, past precedent is indicative of future direction.

    If Mr Slater continues his losing legal streak (I’ve lost count now) what could this say about the outcome of other pending cases?

    In Charity organisations, there is a caution around what is known as “donor fatigue” -that is, continually asking people for money.

    I wonder as to whether Mr Slater’s supporters will ever tire of rescuing Mr Slater from his own self-induced consequences.

    It’s a bloody pity really – the guy has serious, serious talent as both a writer and commentator – he just seems to keep falling down on due diligence and recognising the dignity of accepting when a cause is lost.

        I look forward to the day that Slater gets locked up … because that is probably the only thing that will finally make him realise that he can no longer treat people like shit.

        Hi, checked out the ‘dodgy dam’ story…he’s really just giving his opinion of what was reported…and..’It is hard to come to the conclusion that this is a deliberate plan by vested interests to massively exceed limits set by the Board of Inquiry and to create more headroom for pollutants resulting from the RWSS. It is a cunning and particularly devious little plan when you think about it.’…not sure what to make of this and how its a ‘socialist’ dam.

    Explains why Slater is always asking for money from the Whale commenter’s [deleted – unsubstantiated] … because he got used to receiving $2,000 a week for doing absolutely nothing … and he still clearly expects to receive substantial amounts of money and gives nothing in return.

    Cameron Slater is nothing but a big bludger and a con-artist.

    It’s good of Whale to continue this drama. Will he be rescued? What court case will he lose next? When will he reveal the truth about Mike Sabine? Will he ,as promised, take revenge on his enemies and utterly destroy Labour/National/Matt Blomfield/LF/LP/PG? How long will it be before he wraps up the nonsense that “indict” and join Bomber at 7:01 for an hour of paid by the minute fact free ranting?

    The suspense is killing me.

      Just out of interest I wonder if that’s been settled as there’s been nothing in the media for years about the outcome. If it’s been settled then why can’t Slater finance his own battles he gets himself into on what seems a monthly basis?
