Real New Zealand History

There are stories worldwide of the establishment deliberately destroying and covering up
historical artefacts that do not fit in with the mainstream consensus on history.

New Zealand is no different in this respect as those with vested interest in maintaining the status
quo keep the masses in the dark about discoveries that quite simply would reveal the version of
history we have been told is a lie and a farce.

Study: Manuka Honey Kills More Bacteria Than All Available


Antibiotics
January 2 2017 | From: NaturalNews

Not all honey is created equal. While the benefits of raw, unprocessed
honey have been well-documented over the centuries, Australian
researchers have found one type of honey, called Manuka honey, to be
better than all known antibiotics.

Manuka honey is produced by bees that forage on the nectar of Leptospermum


Scoparium, or New Zealands Manuka bush, as well as tea trees, native to Australia and
New Zealand only.

This remarkable type of honey not only effectively kills bacteria, but none of the bugs killed by it
have been able to build up immunity. In a world where many of the last resort antibiotics are
failing against antibiotic-resistant superbugs, Manuka honey may hold the key to fighting
resistance issues, saving thousands of lives worldwide.
Manuka Honey Fights Superbugs

Dr. Dee Carter from the University of Sydneys School of Molecular and Microbial Biosciences
noted that antibiotics not only have short shelf lives, but the bacteria they attack quickly
become resistant as well, making them useless over time.

The report, published in the European Journal of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases,
claimed that Manuka honey killed almost every bacteria and pathogen it was tested on. Unlike
all antibiotics available on todays market, none of the bugs tested were able to survive the
honey treatment.

than antibiotic treatments

According to Dr. Carter, there are particular compounds, like methylglyoxal, in the Manuka
honey that cause multi-system failure in the bacteria, killing them before they are able to adapt
and build up immunity.

What Manuka Honey Can Do For You

Manukas biological properties range from antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral,


antibiotic and wound healing, to immune-stimulatory. However, what separates Manuka honey
from the rest is that its antibacterial powers challenge even the toughest superbugs, such as
the life-threatening methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).

Manuka honey is marketed for cancer treatment and prevention, high cholesterol, chronic
inflammation, diabetes, the treatment of gastrointestinal problems, and eye, ear and sinus
infections. However, it might be most useful in treating skin wounds and leg ulcers.

According to one study, published in the scientific journal Peer J, chronic wounds are
becoming a major global health problem, due to antibiotic resistance issues. They are costly
and difficult to treat, and bacterial biofilms are important contributors to the delay in healing.
There is an urgent need for new, effective agents in topical wound care, and honey has shown
some great potential in this regard.

Related: Pineapple juice is 500% more effective than cough syrup

For their study, researchers reviewed Manuka honey in particular as an alternative treatment
for wounds because of its broad-spectrum antibacterial activity and the inability of bacteria to
develop resistance to it. Their study indicated that honey might prevent bacterial biofilms and
eliminate established biofilms.

Furthermore, they reported that Manuka honey could successfully be used to kill all MSSA and
MRSA biofilms in a chronic wound, supporting the use of this type of honey as an effective
topical treatment for chronic wound infections.

In recent years, word of the biological benefits of Manuka honey has spread to every corner of
the world, turning it into one of the most popular superfoods out there. Its fame and the over-
demand, however, have caused shortages, resulting in fake, usually cheaper, products to enter
the market. So, if you are going to spend your money on honey to reap its benefits, make sure
you are buying the real thing.

The Sovereignty Of Sidekicks & John Key Era One Giant


Facepalm
December 29 2016 | From: Katehon / NewZealandHerald

It should surprise no honest human being that New Zealand, along with
Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom, is a part of historys first
global empire.

This Atlanticist English-speaking empire first partially established itself after the
defeat of Napoleon, and then cemented itself more firmly after the First and Second
World Wars.

Related: New Zealand Prime Minister John Key Resigns - Warned Of Arrest Status By
John Kerry

It is headed by the United States, of course, but includes the United Kingdom in a
grandfathered special relationship that increasingly resembles the role a ventriloquists
dummy plays in a cringe-worthy comedy routine.

The United Kingdoms former colony, New Zealand, thus, cannot honestly be described as a
sovereign, independent, nation-state, however much its citizens would like to believe this to be
the case.

Rather, this small nation of fewer than five million souls continues very much as in the past, an
extremely junior and therefore even more extremely disposable sidekick who is good for a
little public relations coup now and again but otherwise of small importance.

Lying About Mass Surveillance

Before Kiwi readers throw up their hands in disgust, let it be argued that the good citizens of
Aotearoa New Zealand should be glad of this status. It gives them the opportunity to strike out
for actual statehood. The imperial core may chafe and lash out, but the stakes are so low it will
likely allow full independence in the end.

The immediate obstacle remains New Zealand itself. Its elites, especially in the National Party
(an ironic misnomer if ever there was one), identify completely with the Atlanticist Empire.

This is proven by the career path of its globalist Prime Minister, who cut his teeth as a servile
hatchet-man for The City of London and whose most expensive residential property cuts a fine
sky-line in Hawaii, USA.

Fortunately for New Zealand national independence, Prime Minister John Key has decided to resign his
position. This surprise move ultimately stems from the Atlanticist imperial defeats in Syria, Libya, Ukraine,
and the reversals to globalism in Britain, the EU, and the United States itself.

Sending Kiwi troops to Iraq over a year ago could even land Key in the dock at The Hague
someday. He has certainly breeched a fistful of United Nations binding resolutions, and may
have directly contravened New Zealand statute law by sending New Zealand forces to support
terrorism in the Middle East.
Related: New Zealand Troops To Stay In Iraq For Another 18 months: John Key

In 2015, Key dispatched New Zealand armed forces to Camp Taji, Iraq, a former US base and
prison north of Baghdad. There soldiers train the Iraqi 16th Mountain Division, whose area of
operation lies northward from Taji to the Turkish border.

It just so happens that this Kurdish region is known for the theft of oil belonging to the nation of
Iraq and the sale of this illegal commodity to Turkey, whose ruling clique uses it to launder
ISIS-pirated oil from both Iraq and Syria.

Thus, the now running-for-cover, Key involved Kiwi armed forces in the furtherance of ISIS
funding, arms and explosives purchases, and terror attacks (including those in Paris, Egypt,
Mali, and elsewhere).

Proof that the 16th Mountain Division is involved in this oil-running lies in the assassination of
its commander outside his home in July, 2015 (i.e., it is embroiled in a turf war over protection
rights among Iraqi army units).
Related: Banker John Keys Corporate Repackaging Of War

Proof that the former Prime Minister knows this lies in the very recent Official Information Act
lawsuit by Minister Ron Mark which reveals that New Zealands armed forces are conducting
absolutely no after action analyses on how the 16th Mountain Division has used its Kiwi
training.

Turkeys involvement in supporting ISIS has been an utterly open secret for many,
many years.

Surely the New Zealand Security Intelligence Service briefed the Prime Minister. The
mainstream press has been briefing the public on the issue since before 2013. As former US
intelligence officer G. Murphy Donovan writes, Turkish support for ISIS is the worst kept secret
in Mesopotamia.

Turkey receives more US foreign aid than any other nation, apart from Israel and Egypt. This
number-one son seeks and receives permission for absolutely everything it does, including its
laundering/brokering of ISIS oil and oil sales, and the shootdown of the Russian Federations
Su-24 bomber on November 24, 2015.

Flag: Due Authority - A Very Silent Coup?

Its security services also provide ISIS with weapons and domestically manufactured explosive
compounds. Most recently, its military has invaded both Syria and Iraq in exactly those areas
traversed by illegal oil and arms convoys.

And yet, the United States stoutly refuses to censure its tool, for reasons that should by now be
pretty obvious ISIS is an Operation Gladio-style manufactured enemy upon whom
interventions may be blamed, because of whose existence popular sovereignty, political liberty,
and political equality may be restricted, and by whom, lastly, false flag attacks may be
conducted.

ISIS resembles the Contras of the 1980s or UNITA of the 1970s. The phenomena is, at its
core, a mere intensification of the Al Qaeda model, which has served US imperialism so well
since 1980. As former Reagan Administration official, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, states in a recent
article:

Washington is not opposed to terrorism. Washington has been purposely creating terrorism for many
years.

Terrorism is a weapon that Washington intends to use to destabilize Russia and China by exporting it to the
Muslim populations of those countries.

The ultimate aim remains Atlanticist global hegemony and the looting of those two nations in
order to repay twenty trillion dollars of government debt, sixty-four trillion dollars of overall debt,
and six-hundred and fifty trillion dollars of derivative overhang.

This being the case, New Zealand involvement in Operation Inherent Resolve amounts to
criminal participation in aggression, theft on a global scale, and wholesale as opposed to
retail terrorism. The United Nations has passed many resolutions on these issues: for
example, it declares all direct or indirect support for ISIS oil smuggling to be a breach of
international law.

New Zealand statute law clearly prohibits all contravention of UN resolutions, whatever their
nature, so its wilful entrance into the ongoing violence in the Middle East, organised by the
United States, the EU and NATO, is a crime of aggression.

Former Prime Minister John Key, as then commander-in-chief, has ordered New Zealand armed forces to
train and assist Iraqi military units who are culpably engaged in indirect support of ISIS. New Zealand
troops, therefore, indirectly support ISIS.

This is expressly sanctioned by the United Nations and is a violation of international law. And it
must be stressed that this was done with full knowledge. The Prime Minister cannot claim he
did know that Turkey laundered ISIS oil with oil smuggled through the operational zone north of
Camp Taji.

Everyone in Iraq knows this. The Russian Federation has filmed the immense, and impossible
not to notice, scale of the theft. Footage shows at length oil heading for processing in Batman,
Turkey, just across the border from Mosul.

With full knowledge but little concern, John Key has committed acts expressly prohibited by
New Zealand statute law and is pretty clearly subject to prosecution. This is the most likely
reason for the banker-turned-politician to have resigned.

Now that John Key has removed himself from the office he has hesitated not one second to
sell to Atlanticist hegemony, perhaps the citizens of Aotearoa New Zealand can see to it that
their country becomes an actual independent nation-state with full sovereignty, complete with
its own foreign policy (based on positive and respectful interaction with all nations, rather than
blind and cringing obedience to the global torture-master).

No honest human being could object.

John Key Era One Giant Facepalm

I'm not gonna lie. I'm glad to see the back end of him. Clothed, of course.
I could have chosen to dress up my column today with all sorts of nuanced, insightful,
and charitable words about John Key's departure. It'd be akin to going to someone's
funeral that you consistently bagged - both publicly and privately. Tacky.

My motto: Why waste time being anything other than honest?

There were three issues (from the multitudes) that got to me personally during his time in
power. Like everyone, it's why we either like a politician or we don't. In 2008 I ticked National
for my party vote. Like most of the rest of the country I was well and truly over Helen Clark and
Labour, with the Foreshore and Seabed debacle being the final straw for me.

Key appeared fresh and new, and above all, keen. He wanted the job of Prime Minister, and his
childlike zeal on election night was endearing. Within a year I was uncomfortable. Within two, it
felt like I was sitting on a bed of nails.

I'm not sure of the exact moment I knew the Key train had uncoupled from its charisma
caboose. All I know is the train thundered on without me onboard.
Related: John Key Wants War Between Maori And Pakeha. Are You Going To Let Him?

Logically, it was likely when I realised that Key had no understanding of, or respect for,
the environment. He seemed to me to care only for running New Zealand like a huge
corporation by squeezing every last dollar out of it - no matter the downstream
consequences.

I say "downstream" because my focus back then was firmly on water quality. The Key-led
Government has played a massive role in the funding of dairy and irrigation intensification
since, leading in turn to the steady decline in the quality of our nation's waterways.

I'm not so naive to think he was solely responsible for such cynical fare. However, as
the frontperson for the tragedy of losing our swimmable rivers, one must understand
that some of us will never forgive such recklessness. A good money man? Key's bold and
brassy belief that he managed the Global Financial Crisis well is, shall we say, deluded. He got
lucky. Pure and simple.

I'll wager that within the next 12 months, and well before the 2017 election, our economy will
match the global outlook perfectly. It'll be munted. He is less an economic guru and more a
tinny bastard, frankly.
Related: UK Minister Holds Top-Level Defence Talks In Wellington + John Key Called

I say this in complete awe at Key's uncanny ability to ride the rollercoaster of pure
providence. Despite the poor getting poorer, and the rich getting richer, he somehow
managed to convince the wider electorate that he was a financial whizz - as opposed to
the money trading gambler he ultimately is.

Inequality has never been worse in this country, and that has to be the test. Key's reign
encouraged many to hate on the poor. Little did he and his cohorts comprehend, it also taught
just as many to hate on the rich.

This will not be solved by a new face at the top, or by an obsequious media happy to
create corny commentary for those of you who actually care that he is exiting stage
right.

My biggest thumbs down is reserved for the free licence he issued to a particular segment of
male culture. It's never a good thing when the public learn about the pubic. Key's predilection
for appearing on trashy radio means we all possess the knowledge - like it or not - that he
doesn't trim his "downstairs", has urinated in the shower, and had a vasectomy.

Call me pass but the title of Prime Minister should mean something. Jumping in a cage and
picking up a bar of soap - in a nod to prison rape - is probably not a component of that.
Ponytail-gate sealed it. The man sent a message to the world - and I mean the world -
that he was an unsophisticated fool at best, and a creep at worst.

Since then the planet's got Trump, so maybe Key won't be remembered for those weirdnesses.
However, his legacy is that he contributed massively to the type of male culture in New
Zealand that sees women as not much more than just pom-pom girls cheering from the
sidelines. On a good day.

So, those are my top three gripes, and you'll have yours. Is there any redeeming feature about
Key that I could mention? Yes, I think there is. Work ethic. He had a good one.

It's the end of an era that I'm glad to wave goodbye to. It was eight years of teeth
gritting, face palming, guttural groaning, a fair bit of drinking, and throwing things at the

So long John, and thanks for all the (dead) fish.

New Zealand's Israel Resolution: Peacemakers Seldom Win


Friends
December 26 2016 | From: MSN

A UN Security Council resolution, calling for a ban on illegal Israeli


settlements in the occupied territories, has passed, with NZ taking a major
role. Phil Smith outlines the background and the blowback.
New Zealand has dared to go where even Egypt's strongman, President el-Sisi, feared to
tread.

Related: How Britain wrought destruction on the Palestinian homeland

Abdel Fattah el-Sisi put a forward a resolution demanding an end to Israeli settlement building,
but after an incredibly inappropriate call from Donald Trump, el-Sisi withdrew it again. Exactly
how Trump achieved that is anyone's guess, but America's $1.5 billion aid package to Egypt
may have been threatened.

President el-Sisi said he wanted to let Trump's incoming administration have first crack at the
issue. It was obviously an excuse. Trump's nomination for Ambassador to Israel is a hardliner
who wants more settlement construction and who has compared Jews who advocate for a
'two-state peace' to Capos (Jews who assisted in Nazi death-camps).

When el-Sisi retreated, New Zealand stepped up. Together with Venezuela, Malaysia and
Senegal, New Zealand called for a vote on the resolution, and for the first time since the Carter
administration, the US declined to veto a rebuke over illegal Israeli settlements.
The US noted that settlement construction had accelerated since the US vetoed a similar
resolution in 2001, and that the Obama administration has been warning Israel for eight years
that this 'trend-line' was both making peace more difficult and isolating Israel from the
international community.

The Foundations of the Settlements

Settling population in militarily-occupied territory is contrary to the Geneva Convention, to


international law and previous United Nations rulings.

Settlement building is usually strategic. Settlements create 'facts-on-the-ground', making it


more difficult to give back captured territory (in this case, territory captured during the 1967 Six
Day War). Hardliners believe the territory is theirs by God-given right, but its return, at least in
part, would be necessary for a lasting peace based on a two-state solution.

The tracts that are currently Palestinian controlled areas are an unworkable, disconnected
patchwork of territories.

And That Israel Is A Rogue State

Settlements also increase local conflict by expropriating land and resources to construct and
sustain the townships. Moderate Israeli administrations have tended to restrict or demolish
settlements, while hawkish governments look the other way, or - like the current one - are
gung-ho on expansions which push Palestinians into an ever-diminishing corner.
Related: Water war against Palestinians: Israel planned to supply West Bank with 40%
less water than settlers

Former US President Jimmy Carter has repeatedly stressed that peace in Israel/Palestine is
only likely when the Palestinians also have a viable state, where middle class citizens have a
reason to hope and work for a future. Some form of two state solution has been American
policy for decades.

Seeing this may be about to change, and after significant antagonism from Israeli PM Benjamin
Netanyahu, President Obama apparently believes it is time to allow a line in the sand.

Kiwi Peace-Broker

A few years ago, after the successful Bougainville peace talks, New Zealand imagined a role
for itself as an international peace broker. It was a nice idea that turned out to be harder than it
sounded, but it marked an increased New Zealand confidence to act independently, for good
purpose.

This week's action is a further brave step from New Zealand. It has no obvious ulterior motives,
but instead seems an attempt to simply do the right thing and bugger the consequences.
A nation like New Zealand cannot throw its feather-weight around internationally in order to win
friends. Frequently, the opposite is achieved. A friend won with one action is alienated with the
next, and nations often remember sleights more strongly than support.

The Blowback

The blowback has already begun. Israel is apoplectic and has recalled its envoys to New
Zealand and Senegal, and stopped its Senegal aid programme. It called the resolution
"despicable" and "an evil decree". The Israeli Ambassador to the UN said the vote was "a
victory for terror, a victory for hatred and violence."

New Zealand was already in Israel's bad books. In 2014 Israel refused to accept New
Zealand's ambassador because he was also to act as an envoy to the Palestinian Authority. In
October 2015, Israeli officials reprimanded our Ambassador after New Zealand dared propose
a Security Council resolution that dared encourage a return to peace negotiations. Palestinian
supporters were equally upset, seeing the wording as supporting Israel.

But this time is worse. Israeli-New Zealand relations haven't been so poor since 2004,
when New Zealand imprisoned 'Mossad spies' for attempting to fraudulently obtain a
New Zealand passport. After a year, Israel apologised and relationships were slowly
mended.
Related: Israeli ministers okay draft bill to legalize Jewish settlements on private
Palestinian land despite Supreme Court ruling

This new rift may take longer. Much of the anger is being directed at the US, where President
Obama could have chosen to veto the resolution.

But Netanyahu's conservative government will not take kindly to us fronting a resolution
that pointedly calls East Jerusalem "occupied Palestinian territory".

New Zealand's government will have known blowback was likely. It has decided that, if you ask
to be on the Security Council you need to appear from behind the parapet and take a stand.

In an era where the world's mood seems to be trending towards resentment, aggression and
extremism, a country wins few friends by calling for tolerance or asking for restraint. But that
doesn't mean that working for peace and goodwill isn't the right thing to do.

The New Zealand Road Toll Statistics They Tried To Bury


December 20 2016 | From: BreakingViews

I checked the latest road toll statistics a few days ago. Interesting. For the
year from January 1, road deaths were up from 291 last year to 300.
For the 12 months to Tuesday, they were up from 315 to 328. For driver fatalities, the
figures were up from 138 to 151 (for the calendar year to date) and from 146 to 170 (over
12 months). These are not big increases, but they appear to be more than mere
statistical blips.

Related: The Rise And Rise Of Control-Freak Government

Even more interesting are some of the figures from a Ministry of Transport booklet
called Alcohol and Drugs 2016.

Most of the tables in the booklet pull together figures covering the years 2013-2015 without
breaking them down year by year. They reveal that alcohol and/or drugs contributed to 12 per
cent of fatal smashes.

This might come as a surprise. Given the official obsession with alcohol as a risk factor (all
those checkpoints, all those TV ads, all those earnest lectures from senior police officers every
holiday period), I imagine most people would have thought the ratio of deaths attributable to
booze must be much higher.
But what especially interested me was whether road deaths involving alcohol had decreased
since the legal blood-alcohol limit was lowered on December 1 2014.

This is information of some importance, since the objective of the law change was to reduce
the road toll. But you have to turn to page 8 before you find any figures relating to the year after
the new limits kicked in.

These reveal that the number of alcohol-affected drivers involved in fatal crashes actually
increased from 70 to 90 in the 12 months after the new law came into effect.

This was not what we were led to expect. It is the opposite of what the new limit was intended
to achieve, which was to deter people who had been drinking from getting behind the wheel.

Opponents of the law change argued that it would punish safe, law-abiding motorists
while hard-core drink-drivers would continue to flout the law with impunity. That
appears to be precisely what has happened.
Drink-drive fatalities last year were the highest since 2010. In the 20-24 age group, the number
of alcohol-affected male drivers involved in fatal crashes increased from 12 to 22 thats
nearly double. For men overall, the number was up from 56 to 82.

If the numbers had gone the other way, Im sure the ministry would have been shouting from
the rooftops. As it is, its hard to escape the impression the figures were buried.

We shouldnt be in the least bit surprised that the law change hasnt delivered the
promised improvement. Control-freak policy-makers and poll-driven politicians refuse to
accept that human behaviour cant conveniently be changed by legislative decree.
Related: 8 Ways Control Freak Government Is Sabotaging Freedom And Making Life
More Difficult For Us

Thats also apparent from the anti-smacking law (on average, one child continues to be killed
by domestic violence every five weeks while responsible parents risk prosecution for
disciplining out-of-control kids with a harmless slap) and from laughably ineffective dog-control
rules, which have entered a whole new realm of fantasy with the expectation that owners of
dangerous dogs will obtain special high-risk dog owner licences, submit their dogs to good
citizenship tests, have their properties inspected and demonstrate they understand their legal
obligations.

Yeah, right. Cant you just see gang members meekly queuing at council offices to fill in
the forms and register their blood-flecked pitbulls for obedience training?

Now heres the key point. Any benefits arising from lower blood-alcohol limits and so far there
dont seem to be any should be weighed against the social downsides.

As we brace for the annual bout of Christmas finger-wagging, we should ask whether
New Zealanders enjoyment of life has been unnecessarily diminished just to satisfy the
bureaucratic urge to regulate and control.

Theres an economic cost too. Country pubs - the heart of some rural communities - are going
out of business and wineries can expect fewer summer visitors because people fret that a
harmless tasting will push them over the limit.

Any supposed benefit must also be weighed against the undoubted change in the public
attitude toward the police, who are increasingly resented as bullies and harassers - unwilling or
unable to attend burglaries, but never short of the numbers to run alcohol checkpoints at all
hours of the day, or to hamper law-abiding bar owners in their attempts to run a business, or to
make the staging of public events such as wine festivals so onerous that some participating
companies decide that it's just not worth the effort any more.

Comment: Anyone who still thinks the Police do not have quotas to meet for traffic and
other 'offences' is deluded. It has been established as fact and I and many others have
heard it admitted.

QUOTAS = REVENUE
New Zealand's 'Unusual' Earthquake Raises Complex Questions +
USGS: Early 20th Century Earthquakes May Have Been Man
Made
December 15 2016 | From: Sott / Uncensored

A devastating earthquake has hit New Zealand, but this unusual event, with
long duration slip on several faults, will also provide an astounding data set
for understanding a complex tectonic region.

Map showing location of the M7.8 epicenter (star), M > 3.0 aftershocks up until 04:20 NZ time on the 18th
November (n = 1,782)

New Zealand was rocked by a magnitude 7.8 earthquake on Monday 14th November.
This event had unusual aspects of slip distribution, duration, and kinematics, from
which we will learn a lot about earthquake mechanics as data are collected.

Related: Seismic Testing Presents Significant Risk To East Coast

The event that started ~100 km north of Christchurch with displacements less than 1 m,
propagated northward, creating the largest surface displacements (so far observed) near the
northern termination of the earthquake rupture, at the northeast tip of the South Island.

At this early stage, based on preliminary data released by the New Zealand monitoring
partnership GeoNet, I find three properties of the earthquake particularly intriguing:

1. Slip Distribution

The large surface displacement at the northern end of the rupture explains why aftershocks are
concentrated in the north, and why areas north of the rupture, such as Wellington, experienced
more damage than Christchurch, which is closer to but south of the epicenter.

The earthquake adds insight to the discussion of whether an earthquake knows its size when it
nucleates - this earthquake started small, and only reached large slip late in its propagation.
The USGS estimates the greatest displacements were over 100 km from the epicenter.

Left: Before | Right: After

Therefore, as suggested in recent findings by Meier et al., there seems to have been no way to
expect the large size of this earthquake from its small early slip. The question remains, why did
the earthquake start small and get larger?

2. Type and Number of Faults

The area of the epicenter lies in the Marlborough fault system, known for strike-slip tectonics
where crustal blocks slide horizontally. However, coastal uplift associated with this earthquake
demands at least a couple of meters of vertical motion, related to collision or subduction, as
well as at least 10 m of strike-slip.

Mapping of surface displacements has furthermore illuminated slip on as many as six faults.
Related: Astonishing Nasa photos show Kaikoura land raised by earthquake

The number of faults involved may explain the relatively long duration and complexity of slip. A
question is whether the faults represent a mixture of strike-slip and thrust faults, or a population
of variably oblique-slip faults; another question is whether the fault surface traces are linked to
form a large fault at depth.

3. Slip Duration

The earthquake slip lasted longer than the one-minute slip duration typically considered to
calculate local magnitudes. Initial reports therefore underestimated the magnitude.

The long duration is intriguing; slow propagation is typical of earthquakes originating from the
relatively shallow subduction thrust interface, not faults on the continents.
Related: CERN Condensed Antipodal Point

Although this earthquake was not as slow as some 'tsunami earthquakes', this may imply
rupture in a weak, low rigidity fault zone (e.g., Bilek and Lay). The earthquake occurred in
continental crust, but near a transition from continental transpression on the South Island to
westward subduction underneath the east coast North Island.

It has been suggested that subducted continental crust below the current strike-slip system is
dehydrating, providing fluids that weaken the overlying continental faults.

As more data emerge, we will therefore learn a lot about how deformation is transferred from a
subduction zone to a strike slip system, - also raising questions of what happens in the Cook
Strait, between the two main New Zealand islands (see also Pondard and Barnes).

Coastal Uplift After Kaikoura Quake

USGS: Early 20th Century Earthquakes May Have Been Man


Made

A new study from the USGS suggests that some early 20th century
earthquakes in southern California might have been induced (man-made)
by past practices that were used by the oil and gas industry.
A new study from the USGS suggests that some early 20th century earthquakes in
southern California might have been induced (man-made) by past practices that were
used by the oil and gas industry.

In the new study, scientists evaluated the likely cause of several significant earthquakes within
the Los Angeles Basin between 1900 and 1933, together with consideration of available oil
industry records over this period.

They found that several damaging earthquakes, including a 1929 event near Whittier,
California (estimated magnitude 5) and the 1933 Long Beach earthquake (magnitude 6.4)
might have been induced by oil and/or gas production during the early decades of the Los
Angeles-area oil boom.

During the early decades of the oil boom, withdrawal of oil was not balanced by injection of
fluids, in some cases leading to dramatic ground subsidence, and potentially perturbing the
sub-surface stress field on nearby faults.

In the middle of the 20th century, so-called water-flooding techniques were increasingly
employed to compensate for oil withdrawal and to increase production of fields that were
becoming depleted. Because industry practices have changed, the results of this study do not
necessarily imply a high likelihood of induced earthquakes at the present time.

It has been widely assumed that induced earthquakes do not contribute significantly to hazard in regions
west of the Rocky Mountains, but our research suggests that damaging induced earthquakes might have
occurred in the past, said Susan Hough, USGS seismologist.

Our study further suggests that the rate of natural tectonic earthquakes in the Los Angeles basin for this
time period might have been lower than previously estimated.

Earthquake rates have increased sharply in recent years in some parts of the United States,
including in Oklahoma, where earthquakes were formerly infrequent. Extensive past research
has supported the conclusion that much of this increase is due to disposal of wastewater into
deep geologic formations.

The study, Potentially induced earthquakes during the early 20th century in the Los Angeles

December 13 2016 | From: Uncensored / Archvival

The recent open letter from the directors of solid energy regarding pike
river - the greatest disgrace & corrupt act of treason in new zealands
history.

Solid Energy's penned an open letter defending its plan to permanently seal the Pike
River mine reiterating it won't change its stance. The company's directors maintain it's
not safe to re-enter the mine, and say anyone who disagrees is being reckless.

Related: 'The town bully just went down' - Pike River families say control of mine's
access road given to them

But families of the 29 men who died in the in the 2010 explosions are protesting near the site
and say Solid Energy is ignoring expert research that shows the mine can safely be re-
entered. The mine is expected to be permanently sealed by February.

According to Dr Jacob Cohens mind-blowing book Murder at Pike River Mine (on the Internet,
(the NZ intelligence agencies have been trying to censor censoring it) or it is available through
Mr Lawrie Drew at Greymouth (a father of one of the victims):

1. The 29 miners at Pike River Mine explosion in 2010 were all deliberately murdered,
to facilitate Pike River Coal Ltd to collect a $100 million insurance pay-out, turn the
publics attitude away from underground coal mining and reduce opposition to open-cut
mining.

This would allow BATHURST RESOURCES LIMITED (at the time registered on the Australian
Stock Exchange but now dually listed) which foreign bankers also secretly control with Pike
River Coal, to overtly come into New Zealand and buy up all of the countrys coal resources
and then open cut mine it which has by now almost been fully completed!

2. Interestingly, Dr Cohen mentions in great detail with references from Bathursts own
website, that just before the explosion in the mine, BANK OF AMERICA was aggressively
buying up shares in Bathurst Resources Limited. Guess who was working for Bank of America
before he became NZ Prime Minister.

3. COLLUSION BETWEEN THE DIRECTORS OF PIKE RIVER COAL LTD, THE


DIRECTORS OF THE BIG SHAREHOLDERS OF PIKE RIVER COAL, THE NEW ZEALAND
GOVERNMENT, THE NZ PM, THE NZ MINISTER OF POLICE, THE NZ JUDICIARY, THE NZ
INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES, THE ROYAL COMMISSION INTO THE PIKE RIVER COAL MINE
DISASTER, THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA AND THE FOREIGN BANKING CRIMINALS THAT
CONTROL THE LOT AT THE TOP has ensured the New Zealand public have been totally
brainwashed about the true facts of this monstrous crime and cover-up.

4. And just to make sure the mine victims families, or the general public cant ever know the
full truth about the crime, or even get into the mine to inspect the crime scene, and cant sue
the Government, the companies or Pikes criminal directors, the spurious rat and High Court
Judge heading the corrupt, Royal Commission of Inquiry.
Oh, the quandry for the corporate 'it', such that is has intentionally failed

According to Lawrie Drew, HAS EMBARGOED ALL THE CRITICAL EVIDENCE FOR 75
YEARS! And yes, this has all been totally censored by the incredibly vile, corrupt mainstream
media!

5. This means, in simple mans terms, that the corrupt lawyers and judiciary involved all now
know, that when for example the Government Department supposedly that wanted to bring
CEO of Pike River Coal Peter Whittall to trial under Health and Safety laws (actually it was just
a pretence because they all knew that it would fail) all that Peter Whittalls legal counsel had to
say to the judge in the pre-trial hearing was:

Your Honour, as all the critical evidence has been been embargoed by the Royal Commission for 75
years, we cannot get disclosure and my client cannot defend himself against the allegations
the evidence is being kept secret and cannot be accessed.

Judge: Case dismissed.

6. This therefore means that the NZ Government, police, the judiciary etc. at least at the top -
ALL KNOW they are a pack of lying criminals, including the drafters of this latest Open Letter
FROM THE DIRECTORS OF SOLID ENERGY.

7. All I can say is, because of the widespread indifference of the the general public in putting
up with this outrageous evil, we all deserve the judgment coming on us all. Because inevitably
it will come. If they will get away with this, what will be next?

8. Apparently, PM John Key was personally given a copy of Dr Jacob Cohens mind-blowing
book so he cant say he was not informed. Isnt it rather strange to see he is abruptly resigning
around the same time they want to seal up the mine.

9. Finally these devils want to seal up the entrance to the mine with a 30 metre thick plug of
concrete. 30 metres! Can you believe it? They sure do want to make sure nobody ever
investigates the crime scene dont they?

In the United States of America a similar coal mine explosion occurred at the Upper Big Branch
Mine not long before Pike River explosion when exactly 29 miners were also killed. Since then,
the miners families have received millions of dollars in pay-outs and the CEO of the company
concerned Don Blankenchip is now in jail.
Yet here in New Zealand, not even one director has even been charged or brought to trial. We
hear about the criminal activities of government agencies in the United States being bad, but
our government and corporate criminal cabal is a hundred times worse! 29 miners cruelly
killed, and yet nobody has even received a slap on the hand. What an utter disgrace.

Frankly, if we just sit back and put if with this rot and say nothing about the blatant lies being
perpetuated by the mainstream corporate media propaganda goons, nearly five million of us,
seriously, I fear for the freedoms and liberties of every single person in this country.

Isnt it about time things changed dramatically?

Truly.

Pike River Murder Of 29 Miners & Blocking Of Re-Entry


September 25 2014 | From: Dr Jacob Cohen & 'Jack' (see download link below)

A censored book claims corruption at the very highest level of Government,


Poice, International Bankers, Corporations and Media Propoganda - naming
those who should be charged.
"Ive been watching the reports on TV and mainstream media over last couple of days,
and hadnt realised that your victims families had sought, successfully, under the
Official Information Act the experts reports that say the drift 2.3 km access tunnel is
now perfectly safe for re-entry, yet Solid Energy have been lying about this fact, and it is
plain what their delayed decision in October will be negative!"

"Clearly, there is something in the access tunnel that they know they dont want to be revealed
to either you or the public.

It all points to the fact the serious allegations in Dr Jacob Cohens book, MURDER AT PIKE
RIVER MINE are 100% correct, and that all the miners were plainly murdered.

Further, in even greater support of Dr Cohens penetrating allegations now, is the undeniable
fact that government intelligence agencies (it couldnt be anyone else) have REMOVED and
CENSORED the book almost entirely from the Internet. The only copy I could find this morning
was on this site below.

You can have a look at the few remaining references to it if you GOOGLE-search it and you
will find the books references are still there, but the book has been DELETED.

Perhaps, you and the families, could have copies of the book printed up and personally
delivered to all MPs.

While this would not guarantee mine re-entry and police examination of some of the crime
scene, at least it will mean that the entire government, (representing the entire nation) has
been properly informed of the real truth and the blatant cover-up, headed by big business in
collusion with the NZ Prime Minister John Key, brought out so vividly by Dr Cohen."

IRD And Fraud Prosecution Inequalities In New Zealand


December 11 2016 | From: EnviroWatchRangitikei / BruceJessonFoundation
Every year the IRD identifies about $1.2 Billion in Fraud committed by NZ
business people - and Welfare Fraud? $30 Million.

They have gone ahead and set up the technical bases last week to enable the immediate
payments system throughout Europe.

Related: New Zealand Government Has Pledged Millions Of Dollars Worth Of Taxpayer

Every year the IRD identifies about $1.2 Billion in fraud committed by NZ business people. Yes,
every year. It discovers around $30 Million in welfare fraud (tiny by comparison).

Yet, as Dr Marriott discovered - welfare fraudsters are far more likely to be sent to prison than
white collar criminals. Remember our [Ex] Prime Minister is a banker and our country has been
heisted by corporate money interests and our welfare state is seriously in demise, thanks to
the aforementioned!

Tax Fraud Vs Welfare Fraud

Im on the board of the Bruce Jesson Foundation which supports investigative journalism and
each year funds a lecture on some aspect of society.

This years lecture was by Dr Lisa Marriott from Victoria University Business School on her
investigation into how and why white collar tax fraud is treated far more leniently than welfare
fraud.

Yet , as Dr Marriott discovered - welfare fraudsters are far more likely to be sent to
prison than white collar criminals. You can eatch her lecture below.
Why are those less advantaged in New Zealand society treated differently from those who are
in relatively privileged positions?

Why are white-collar tax evaders treated differently to welfare fraudsters? In the Annual Jesson
Lecture in Politics for 2016, Dr Lisa Marriott considers the circumstances where this occurs,

New Zealands Elite Child Abuse Rings Exposed


December 7 2016 | From: MediaWhores / Various

Minister of State Organised Child Abuse - Anne Tolley - has announced


there will be no investigation into mass child abuse by the Crown. The
Crown presumably has the God given right to abuse as many Kiwi children
as it likes and its none of tax payers business.
Fearless blog Lauda Finem that specialises in exposing NZs pedophile corporate elite
and the justice system that appears to systematically protect them has recently posted
allegations that the NZ judiciary have also been caught red handed covering up
pedophilia in NZ.

Related: Tolley rules out apology for child abuse in state care

Attempted Judicial Paedophilia Cover-up

Nothing new to us at Media Whores. It has long been alleged that even New Zealands chief
justice - Sian Elias - is married to a serial child sex offender - Hugh Fletcher. So perhaps it is
no surprise that pedophiles are protected by the NZ justice system.

The Justin Davis Files floating around the web seems to suggest that the NZ judiciary is
actively involved in the covering up and protection of powerful pedophiles and pedophile rings
in New Zealand including some MPs, and many top businessmen, doctors and dentists in
NZ.

Whistle Blower Justin Davis gives us a first hand look into the world of these pedophiles who
use sophisticated date rape drugs to drug and abuse children in their doctors rooms, dentistry
clinics, churches and even MP offices.
Sian Elias

The drugs they use mean the victims usually do not even know they have been abused, and
just wake up in a haze feeling drowsy with no memory of the abuse but they will never be the
same traumatised in the subconscious for life.

Every so often we see such cases float to the surface, but they are usually covered up and
suppressed as quickly as possible the fact is they are only the tip of the iceberg..they are
likely all connected, and probably using the same drugs and drug networks exposed by Justin
Davis- drugs being distributed by top doctors and dentists around NZ.

We have also recently seen the astounding situation of NZ Judge Lowell Goddard seeming to

are alleged to have been abused by British MPs, Lords, Judges and high profile entertainers.
The NZ judiciary right in the thick of it. They are very much an International operation that
much is clear.
Lowell Goddard

Ironically it was the blogger Cameron Slater who exposed in 2014 that at least 5 sitting MPs
have name suppression for child abuse crimes.

Slater is obviously part of same establishment with his blanket protection of John Key and his
gang, but was being put under pressure during the Dirty Politics scandal and published it on
his blog one day, presumably as a threat to those who he works with and for.
Max Key

We know quite a few MPs have had to stand down in recent years Mike Sabin was one of
them but the public are not even allowed to discuss that case on the orders of the NZ
judiciary.

We are aware that Nick Smith MP recently hired a Nelson lawyer to fight child abuse ring
allegations circulating online. Nick Smith was also tied up with the Civic Crache case in which
young children came forward with stories of sexual abuse. Close to the fire it seems, is the NZ
Housing Minister.

And then there was Prime Minister John Keys joke about the escaped pedophile killer Phillip
Smith (there goes that name again) on the world stage / G20 summit. John Key obviously
thinks pedophilia is quite humorous.

The very fact they call these people Ministers is highly suspect it stinks of religious
overtones and we all know too well about the reputation of Church ministers. It is all the
same church in our view.
John Key and his love for little girls ponytails and his highly sexualised children. Something is
clearly not quite right with the PM.

To their credit it was Radio NZ who reported on the 1000 children who have gone missing
from Child Youth and Family over the years the Government and Anne Tolley raced to
counter the fall out by relabeling the Crowns apparent child trafficking operation with a new
name.

Radio NZ appear to spend most of their time covering this stuff up, but this article was good
work on their part.

Facebook is awash with stories of Child Youth and Family now kidnapping children as young

Related: 'CYFS Need To Listen To Carers'

So they take a breast feeding child off its mother at 4 weeks and place it in the hands of
strangers where the statistics say they are at least 10 times more likely to be abused.

How can the public be assured these kids are not being kidnapped to order by pedophiles who
are connected to these people who pose as Government and Justice? Perhaps these freaks
feed off children in fact some argue this is often the case.

There are numerous petitions online from families who have had their children kidnapped by
the State under dubious circumstances. Can you imagine knowing your kids have been taken
by people with numerous documented ties to pedophile rings and child abuse? Horrific.

New Zealand Prime Minister John Key Resigns - Warned In


Person By United States Secretary Of State John Kerry Of Arrest
Status
December 6 2016 | From: TheGuardian / Secure

Key says he would vote for his deputy prime minister, Bill English, if he put
his name forward for leader, after shock announcement that he is quitting.
The Cabal is falling and Key is the latest casualty...
We are witnessing the publicised beginnings of the fall of the Khazarian Nazionist
Luciferian Cabal right now

John Key, the New Zealand prime minister and leader of the National party, has resigned
in a decision that has taken the country by surprise.

Related: Italy Referendum: Prime Minister Renzi Quits as Voters Deliver Stinging
Rebuke

Warning: Brace yourself for the horrific backslapping of Cabal minions... Wake up
Rebecca.

Key held a media conference in Wellington at 12.45pm local time, after informing the cabinet of
his decision.

His resignation will be effective from 12 December, when National MPs will meet to
select a new leader.

Key said he would vote for his deputy prime minister, Bill English, if he put his name forward.
English briefly led the party to its worst-ever electoral defeat in the 2002 election, but has since
served as a successful finance minister.

Key is widely regarded as one of the most popular prime ministers in New Zealands history.
He was first elected in 2008, and recently marked his 10-year anniversary as leader of the
National party.

He said stepping down was the hardest decision he had ever had to make, but there was no
way he could have served a full fourth term.

This felt like the right time to go, he told reporters;


Sometimes youve got to make hard decisions to make right decisions, he said, adding it was an
opportunity to refresh the National partys leadership of the country and hopefully clinch a fourth term.

I think one of the reasons governments fail at that fourth-term hurdle is leaders dont want to leave,
everyone says Ive seen this before. This is the chance to demonstrate newness about us.

He said he had a pretty long discussion about standing for a fourth term with his wife, Bronagh Key.

I dont feel comfortable looking down the barrel of the camera and not being honest ... On a family basis, I
dont think I could commit much longer than the next election.

He denied that Bronagh had given him an ultimatum, but said his leadership had come at a cost to his
family.

Its been a decade of a lot of long, lonely nights for her and its the right time for me to come home.

His children, Max and Stephie, had suffered an extraordinary level of intrusion along with the
opportunities that came with being New Zealands first family.
Related: Radio Station George FM Warns Staff About Max Key

In the past year, Key has had to answer to questions about his sons burgeoning career as a
DJ and social media personality. Spending more time with his family was a major factor in his
decision to stand down, he said.

Key said he believed the mark of a good prime minister was one who left the country in better
shape than they found it.

Over time others will judge whether Ive done that. All I can say is I gave it everything I had. I have left
nothing in the tank.

One of his regrets was not getting the Trans-Pacific Partnership over the line, as well as
his failed bid to change the flag.

He said he considered his economic management of the country as a mark of success, even
though New Zealand had weathered some crises during his government, including the
Canterbury earthquake and the Pike River mining disaster. Very few countries are in the
financial position were in.

But Winston Peters, the leader of the New Zealand First party, said Key had consistently
misled the public about the state of the economy, and his resignation showed he was unable
to muddy the waters anymore.

Key said he would remain in parliament long enough to avoid a byelection, but would step
down as an MP before the next election. He said he stood down hoping and believing New
Zealand had been well served by the government I led.

Comment: Key was warned to get the hell out by John Kerry (on his recent visit when he
was also declined access to a secret facility in Antarctica) because the Cabal is going
down and Key is fairly well up on the arrest list.

The reason for his placement at #4 is not clear, perhaps because of his bankster history.
We are told that in the #1 spot is George Soros, followed by Hillary Clinton in the #2
spot. Interesting times indeed.

He plans to remain in Auckland after leaving politics, and enter the commercial sector.

English, who has Keys backing to replace him, praised the prime ministers intelligence,
optimism and integrity and said he would be judged by history as one of New Zealands
greatest leaders. He said the National caucus would now consider the implications of the
prime ministers decision, and that Key left behind a united team with plenty of talent.

He told reporters at a press conference that he learned from Key he was considering leaving in
September. English had not yet decided whether to stand for leadership, but would not rule it
out.
Related: Does John Key Run The NZ Meth Trade?

Ultimately, that is a matter for the caucus ... Weve put a premium on stability and unity, and I dont think
you should expect to see the kind of public brawling that you see over leadership changes in Opposition.

The country benefits from stable, clear direction and government.

English pointed out that the caucus had only known about Keys resignation for a few hours.

Say it aint so, bro - Australian PM

The leader of the Labour party, Andrew Little, and the Green party co-leader, Metiria Turei, both
wished Key well for the future on Twitter.
Australias prime minister, Malcolm Turnbull, said he was disappointed to hear from his very
good friend that he was resigning.

I sent him one very short message: Say it aint so, bro.

Turnbull said Key was one of the most outstanding national leaders in the world today, whose influence
was out of proportion to the size of the country.

New Zealand has never boxed above its weight as much as it has done with John Key as its Prime
Minister. He is truly outstanding.

Turnbulls only consolation, he said, was that Keys resignation meant he might see more of
him.

When Turnbull ousted Tony Abbott in September last year, he singled out Keys leadership as
an inspiration.

Abbott also praised Keys fine innings on Twitter.

Australias opposition leader, Bill Shorten, said Key had been a good friend to Australia and
wished him well.
The New Zealand dollar fell more than a quarter of a cent after the announcement.

Could This Healthy 23 Year Olds Cardiac Arrest Have Been


Caused by Exposure To 1080? + The Stock Deaths From 1080
Poison & How DOC Is Hiding Them In The Paper Work
December 4 2016 | From: EnviroWatchRangitikei

We will never know because the NZ laboratoy lost her heart!


This story crossed my path recently on Facebook. It is apparently an old one, coming as
it does from 2006. It is nevertheless a shocking story in more ways than one.

Related: 1080: NZ Animals Killed For No Reason In $80m Yearly 1080 Drops

Shocking and sad for the family of this young woman, Whitney Robie was only 23. She had
been hiking in the South Island, felt unwell, and after retiring to bed, died in her sleep of a
sudden cardiac arrest it was later ascertained. Now they are left with few answers and no real
closure regarding the why of her death. Read on.

She had come here to our clean green paradise to live. Sadly she died here.
NZ is not clean and green people, it is severely polluted and toxic now -and worse, our
authorities lie about that

Sudden accidental deaths (SADs) do happen however this story has some anomalies which
could have but have not been solved due to a medical blunder. It is thanks to a GP who
followed up on Whitney & questioned friends at the hostel where she was staying, that we
have a little more of this story than we would otherwise have known.

Losing a heart for one thing is a shocker in itself. In a random and ordinary course of events
such a mistake is feasible. But with a sudden unexplained death of a very healthy, active young
woman how could this possibly happen? When the clues to her death clearly lay within an
analysis of her hearts condition, how could they simply LOSE her heart? Well lose it they did.
Or so they say.

The official story about this loss can be found at the following link:

Family face long wait over backpackers lost heart

A journalist who has been following this story for some time and says it has been
shared more than 150 times now, has re posted it on Facebook with the attendant detail
from when it first became news here is the train of events as described by her (edited
for brevity & omission of personal detail):

Regarding Whitney Robie, she went hiking on her own in a 1080d area (I believe it was gel/jelly) and felt
unwell that evening, said so, went to bed and had a cardiac arrest in the night.

She was 23. From the USA, her obituary described how she was full of life, fit, loved the outdoors and had
moved to NZ for an adventure.
She had no previous history of heart problems.

The Doctor concerned said he had gone to the hostel and spoken to the other guests straight after she
died. Later when he heard her death had been recorded as a heart attack, he advised and pressed the
authorities to run tests relating to possible 1080 exposure.

He was told however that the matter was now officially closed. Her heart was sent for post mortem and
was lost by the govt laboratory. This Dunedin GP was so concerned that he made a submission to ERMA
in 2007 that included this account.

It was his opinion that the most probable cause of her death was 1080 poisoning, and that many others in
NZ over the years have also died from it but that their deaths are either mistakenly or deliberately
misdiagnosed.

A letter to the editor in 2006 commenting on the actions of the Doctor involved gives further information
about the unexplained early deaths of people working with 1080."

Read the pdf here: Cancer-deaths-from-1080

Here are some points to consider about this story:

The 1080 Reassessment Application document for ERMA Oct 2006. Section 3.3 Hazard
Classifications. Sub section 4.8.2 [has the] Heart as a target organ.
Related: Invasion of the Alien Species

4.8.2. Heart as a target organ That single or repeated sublethal exposures to fluoroacetate can have toxic
effects on the heart has been recognised for some time (e.g. Steyn 1934; Quin and Clark 1947; Hicks
1952).

In general, the action of fluoroacetate on the heart is to decrease the metabolic energy available in heart
muscle, which affects the conduction system controlling the rate and strength of heart beats (e.g.
Chenoweth and Gilman 1947)

Found on page 11 of the pdf

St Johns put out their Sudden Cardiac Arrest Annual Report in June and it shows the figures
for rural as opposed to urban. The rates are far far higher in rural areas.

Rural New Zealanders had more than double the incidence of cardiac arrest than those in urban centres
approximately 160 versus 78 (per 100,000 person-years).

1080 is effective as a poison regardless of the mode of entry. It can be absorbed by the
intact skin, but not readily, however it is easily absorbed through cuts, abrasions, and is rapidly
absorbed through the gastrointestinal tract and through the lungs. One teaspoon of 1080 is
enough to kill 30-100 adults weighing around 150 pounds. The potential for misuse is great

How toxic is 1080? Toxicologist explains Professor Ian Shaw explores why and how
1080 is so toxic and asks what is the risk of a child dying from contaminated formula.

The main point is that although these deaths may or may not be attributed to 1080, more
importantly, if nobody looks and checks then we are left with this element of doubt.

Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

Plausible deniability is not good enough.

There are questions that are not being answered or even addressed.

It recently came to light from an Official Information request that DOC had lost 89 Kiwi
yet they had not tested one of them for 1080. Doing so is not rocket science.

A blogger, NZRose commented here recently:

My partner and I spoke to the poison people late last year. They are contracted to lay
everything from cyanide to feratox to take care of the pests on behalf of the NZ Government.

I will never forget them laughing as they said that the 1080 had been doubled more than a
year prior to our conversation. When we asked why they said to Kill the deer, and the activists
arent even aware yet.

We responded with Well now they are. These people were too stupid to realise they were
talking to the wrong people. (See the whole comment here)

Proceed with Caution

And in the meantime, this is all evidence enough for us to be extremely wary of exposing
ourselves in any way to 1080. It is clearly a lethal product and by all reports right now, is being
spread around quite indiscriminately. Finding it on walking tracks, in streams and on public
seating and anywhere near where humans are likely to be, is simply not good enough.

Families with young children walk these tracks. If you intend hiking in our bush, please avail
yourself of data about when 1080 was last spread in the area where you intend walking.

You can obtain this from DOC. We recently heard of two women who were surprised during a
picnic by a 1080 drop who continue to experience illness, they believe, because of that
unintended exposure. Clearly they were not aware of any intentions by DOC to be dropping
1080 where they picnicked that day.

About 1080:

1080 is an alias for Monofluoroacetate, a chemical. Monofluoroacetate was originally developed and
marketed as an insecticide. It functions primarily by interfering with the citrate step in the Krebs
cycle [5]. The Krebs cycle is the major and an essential mechanism by which all air breathing
creatures utilize food to produce energy.
It is therefore universally toxic to all animals, essentially every living thing except plants and some
micro-organisms. The degree of toxicity of 1080 is extreme, but varies somewhat among species. It
is categorised by the World Health Organization (WHO) as 1A, their highest rating, extremely
toxic [1,2].

What I deduct from all of this is that until the NZ government desists from using it, we the
public must be very vigilant in protecting ourselves. That to my mind includes warning others,
particularly tourists who are sold our country on the basis of being clean and green.

The corporations (and our government is one) have a priority (a legal mandate) of profits over
people, so they are not going to put your safety first. We believe it is far safer to err on the side
of caution when there are any suspected or known risks.

New Zealands Reputation Stained By Corruption - Case In Point:


The Turitea Wind Farm
November 30 2016 | From: TuriteaDocuments

Observers of recent world events have witnessed a pushback against


corruption and the poor behaviour of governments. Unfortunately New
Zealand is not corruption free. When making such a claim there must be
concrete evidence to back it up.

This evidence, which has taken more than six years to assemble, is provided in the link
below.

Related: New Zealand Government Has Pledged Millions Of Dollars Worth Of Taxpayer
Funds To The Corrupt Clinton Foundation & Clinton Health Access Initiatives

The government, which self reports on its corruption status, secretly colluded with Mighty River
Power, a then State Owned Enterprise, and our local government authority, Palmerston North
City Council [PNCC], to force a gigantic wind farm on the local community; known as the
Turitea wind farm.

This was initiated during the reign of former Prime Minister Helen Clark. The consummation of
a hitherto punitive, secret contract, which cancels the governments social contract with all New
Zealanders, took place during the current administration.

The Turitea Wind Farm is comprised of 60 turbines. The 60 3MW Turitea turbines are 10 metres taller than these
at Tararua three and will tower over the city

This mafia like contract imposes a 3 million dollar penalty on PNCC if it helps anyone affected
by the wind farm and further imposes unlimited liability if it changes its mind about supporting
it.

A variation to the contract shows all participants would conspire to overthrow any
decision by a court impeding the wind farm.

The wind farm was "approved" and a consent issued by a judge, Shonagh
Kenderdine. Kenderdine however was not a judge as she had been automatically and
compulsorily removed, by virtue of age, from the judicial register more than 13 months prior
to issuing the consent at the conclusion of a Call-In process, which has higher legal authority
than an actual court of law.

This fraud by Kenderdine is certainly not a Commonwealth first. Kenderdine, without a


warrant and just a member of the public, took a very substantial bribe to bring the secret
contract to a predetermined conclusion.

No one was supposed to find out. Virtually all the executive from the Prime Minister and
Attorney-General down either know about this or are actively in on the fraud.

These agencies include the Office of the Governor-General, police, Financial Markets
Authority, LCRO, Judicial Conduct Commissioner, Ministry for the Environment, Serious Fraud
Office, Environment Court, Law Commission, Ombudsman, Office of the Auditor General, etc.

With the exception of one, which was compelled to give the game away, all have maintained a
code of silence.

The factual account linked below has all the hallmarks of a systematic fraud; corruption at the
highest levels of government, subversion and alienation of existing law, illegal payments,
securities fraud, media collusion, and PNCC ratepayers facing severe financial loss, the whole
nine yards, but with two laughably novel twists.

1. The Turitea and Puketoi wind farms have been deliberately located right on top of
three of the country's most dangerous active fault lines.

2. A 49% share in Mighty River Power, which owns the consents, was subsequently
sold to unwitting investors.

Despite assurances the earthquake risk was not revealed. Taxpayers and individual investors
will bear the inevitable losses.

Are Microwave Transmission Weapons Of Mass Destruction Being


Used To Trigger Catastrophic Earthquakes? + New Zealand
Earthquake: The Worlds Biggest Offshore Seismic Blasting Ship
The Amazon Warrior
November 17 2016 | From: GeoEngineeringWatch / TheContrail

Are unimaginably powerful microwave transmissions actively and


aggressively being used as weapons of mass destruction? If all available
evidence is examined, the logical conclusions are chilling.
Understanding the full potential of the power that can be projected from the ionosphere
heater installations (like HAARP) is difficult and complex.

Related: Worlds Biggest Seismic Testing Ship Amazon Warrior Parked On Top Of
New Zealand Fault Line & 6.2 Aftershock Shakes New Zealand After Powerful 7.8
Earthquake Kills At Least 2

We all know and understand that microwave transmissions produced in our countertop ovens
can heat a cup of water (or frozen TV dinners) at blinding speed. Unfortunately, most don't
know and thus have never even considered (let alone investigated) what massively powerful
and interlinked microwave transmissions can do to the planet.

When immensely powerful microwave transmissions are bounced off the atmosphere
(facilitated by the atmospheric aerosol saturation) and directed back into the Earth's strata (in a
seismically sensitive location), the triggering of seismic activity becomes scientifically possible.
The constant jet aircraft spraying of reflective and electrically conductive particles into the
atmosphere (as part of the ongoing climate engineering/geoengineering assault) is a verifiable
fact. Is New Zealand, yet again, the victim of microwave transmission super-weapons?

There is a long list of shocking facts surrounding a number of recent catastrophic earthquakes.
It is imperative to examine these facts without preconceptions or programmed denial.

Let's start with the month leading up to the extremely destructive 2010 earthquake in Haiti, MIT
satellite monitoring detected a radical increase in ULF (ultra low frequency/microwave) radio
transmissions over the quake epicenter.

Spacecraft Saw ULF Radio Emissions over Haiti before January Quake

A French satellite observed a dramatic increase in ultra low frequency radio waves over Haiti in the month
before the M7.0 earthquake earlier this year.

DEMETERs is an unusual mission. Its job is to monitor low frequency radio waves generated by
earthquakes.

Today, a group of geoscientists release the data associated with the M 7.0 earthquake that struck Haiti in
January. They say that DEMETER saw a clear increase in ultralow frequency radio waves being emitted
from the Earths the crust in that region in the build up to the quake.

The anecdotal evidence of electromagnetic effects associated with earthquakes is legion. Various accounts
link earthquakes with mysterious light and heating effects."

After the Haiti quake, the US military moved in and occupied the country. In addition, the long
drawn-out Clinton Foundation reconstruction debacle began.
The following year a deadly earthquake struck Christchurch, New Zealand. Many
circumstances surrounding this disaster were also troubling. Did US officials know the
earthquake was coming? Some excerpts from a report on the disaster are below.

"Was the Christchurch earthquake a terrible natural disaster, or was it a terrible MAN MADE
disaster?

9 members of US Congress were in Christchurch for a summit meeting on Feb 21 & 22 but left
Christchurch 2.5 hours before the earthquake hit and relocated to Wellington even though the meeting was
not due to finish until the evening of Feb 22nd.

The US Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, was supposed to be visiting Christchurch and
speaking at the summit meeting on Feb 22, but on Feb 18 announced she was cancelling her visit 3.

The Deputy Administrator of FEMA (US Federal Emergency Management Agency), Timothy Manning, just
happened to be in Christchurch at the time with a US delegation.

All of the rest of the delegation left Christchurch shortly before the quake hit except for Mr Manning who
stayed behind, and then after the quake hit he assisted with directing the emergency response.

Exactly the same thing happened with FEMA delegates with the Haiti earthquake. In Haiti , the FEMA
delegates just happened to be there at the time conducting training exercises for responding to major
earthquakes."

Recent releases from Wikileaks resulted in the headline below:

Hillary Clinton Emails Show Advanced Warning of Christchurch Earthquake.


In the days before the catastrophic Japanese Earthquake (that occurred on March 11, 2016),
world renowned research institution, MIT, yet again, noted extremely profound and anomalous
atmospheric heating directly over the quake epicenter. MIT published the following report:

"Atmosphere Above Japan Heated Rapidly Before M9 Earthquake

Infrared emissions above the epicenter increased dramatically in the days before the devastating
earthquake in Japan, say scientists.

They say that before the M9 earthquake, the total electron content of the ionosphere increased
dramatically over the epicentre, reaching a maximum three days before the quake struck.
At the same time, satellite observations showed a big increase in infrared emissions from above the
epicentre, which peaked in the hours before the quake. In other words, the atmosphere was heating up."

Though the science community is desperately trying to link pre-quake atmospheric heating to
some unknown phenomenon of an atmospheric coupling with the pressure buildup in the
strata, is this a rational conclusion?

The much more logical and straightforward conclusion is this, the atmospheric heating is being
intentionally created by the global network of ionosphere heaters as immense microwave
signals are bounced off of the atmosphere and back down into the planet.

Unfortunately, the science community is not allowed to even consider this possibility, let alone
talk about it. In the period preceding the decimating Japanese earthquake, US Japanese
relations were very strained.

The post-quake scenario of US/Japanese relations seemed to suddenly be unquestionable,


was there a connection? Was the catastrophic quake just a natural event? Or an engineered
warning to Japan?

On the 13th of November, 2016, another catastrophic earthquake struck near Christchurch,
New Zealand.

The list of troubling questions surrounding this earthquake is long and growing. Below are
some quotes from seismologist Anna Kaiser (who is investigating the latest New Zealand
earthquake activity):

"We don't know what we are dealing with right now but it may be it involves potentially more than one
fault we need to figure out what was going on before and after the 7.5 magnitude quake "
Kaiser went on to say this:

"We're working very hard this is looking quite complex. The epicenter was possibly just south of the
Hope fault, but it did look like "something else was going on.

The seismologist statements are only the beginning, there are many more concerning factors
surrounding the latest New Zealand Earthquake that should be considered.

In spite of the unfolding US election circumstances, in the days before the latest New Zealand
quake John Kerry first went to Christchurch, and then on to McMurdo Station, Antarctica.

The stated purpose of Kerry's visit was to examine the effects of global warming and the record
low sea ice, but this trip at this time was criticized by some.

"US Secretary of State John Kerry is scheduled to head back to New Zealand after checking out
summer in Antarctica.

He's been criticized for heading to such a remote place while the US election riveted the world

He tweeted a photograph of himself boarding C-17 cargo plane in Christchurch saying "headed to
Antarctica to see firsthand some of the drastic effects of climate change".

In Antarctica he was scheduled to meet with scientists and researchers at McMurdo Station, the largest
research station of the US Antarctic programme, as well as visit surrounding areas on Ross Island, and the
US Government's Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station.

He is the first secretary of state and the most senior US government official to ever travel to Antarctica.
He is hosted by the US National Science Foundation, which manages the US Antarctic program me."

In fact Antarctica has just broken a new climate record, with record low winter sea ice. After
a peak of 18.5 million square kilometers in late August, sea ice began retreating about a month
ahead of schedule and has been setting daily low records through most of September.

Though Antarctic sea ice (and global sea ice) are at record shattering low levels, why else
might John Kerry go to McMurdo Station at this exact window of time? Could the ionosphere
heater (microwave transmission) facility that is constructed at McMurdo be a factor?
Noctilucent clouds in the skies above Antarctica are an ominous harbinger of the atmospheric damage that is
occurring there

"Many are under the belief that HAARP, now labeled IRI, no longer exists Operationally due to the Gakona,
AK spin. One must understand that these Frequency Generators are Globally Ubiquitous. There are so
many that are of dissimilar designs, and go by different acronyms, it is not seen as functionally one and the
same.

In the case of McMurdos Radome and all of the Radar equipment there; Raytheon has had the contracts
beginning to end. The National Science Foundation and Raytheon Polar Services Company are housed in
the same building. For years the station has grown. It can house 1258 personnel and an average of 200
winter over."

Raytheon is one of the largest private "defense contractors" on the planet, this corporation
is also the holder of numerous climate engineering patents including some that relate directly
to ionosphere heaters. The power structure is likely microwaving the skies for a multitude of
reasons, none of those reasons are in the interest of the common good.

Shocking atmospheric flashing lights were filmed in the skies above New Zealand as the
massive Earthquake was occurring.

Kerry returned to Christchurch from Antarctica, and then promptly (and conveniently)
departed only hours before the catastrophic earthquake struck.
The statement below is from CBS news.

"Sec. John Kerry had left the country before it struck, and just landed in Singapore on his way to Oman
when news of the quake was reported.

Is it just a coincidence that US officials always seem to safely depart quake impact zones just
prior to the event?

Then there is this headline to consider:

"Worlds Biggest Seismic Testing Blast Ship Amazon Warrior Parked on top of New Zealand
Fault Line

Is this just a coincidence?

Another point of interest, New Zealanders protested against US Oil exploration continued right
up to the day before the quake. Then there was the conflict in New Zealand over the visit of a
US warship, this story was covered the day before the quake hit.

The New Zealand Prime Minister's apparent apprehension about the US election results just
days prior to the quake are also of interest.

Finally, could known massive oil deposits just off the New Zealand coast also be a part of the
equation?

Microwave transmission signals/rings near Antarctica are clearly visible in the satellite
composite image shown below.
The regions of New Zealand near the epicenter have been constantly assaulted with aerosols
spraying and microwave transmissions.
The uniform ribbing of aerosolized cloud cover is a clear indication of microwave transmission
exposure.

Though some "official" sources try to explain this type of cloud pattern as being a result of the
underlying land topography, this explanation is patently false.

The same patterns are now regularly seen over oceans as well as land as is shown in the
satellite photo below that was taken of New Zealand directly over the quake region.
The image below bears testimony to what the global power structure does to those that try to
get in the way of their agendas and operations.

This photo is of the bridge of the Greenpeace ship "The Rainbow Warrior". It was bombed and
sunk by the French Secret Service in order to prevent the ship and its crew from witnessing
ongoing illegal and unimaginably destructive nuclear detonations.
Over 2 decades ago I dove alone on the wreck of the Rainbow Warrior, as it laid on the
seafloor off the coast of New Zealand. I swam through the area shown above, around the ship,
and examined the gapping bomb blast hole in the hull of the once noble vessel. I hovered over
the wreck and contemplated the tyranny of those who rule the world.

We are all at a crossroads, and the horizon is darkening rapidly. The power structure
wields weapons of unimaginable destruction, they can only do so because of the order-
followers that carry out their insanity. As the saying goes, "we have seen the enemy, and they
are us".

It is up to us, the people, all of us, to refuse any further participation in the insanity. It is up to us
to fully investigate and fully face the whole truth. It is up to us to prioritize the fight for the
greater good because we owe that debt to our children, to the planet, and to the whole.

Make your voice heard, while you can, while it can still matter.

The 11/13/16 quake, with a magnitude of 7.8, was much stronger than the magnitude-6.3
quake in 2011. But it also was much deeper - striking 23 kilometers (14 miles) below the
earth's surface. The 2011 quake had a depth of just 5 kilometers (3 miles). The shallower
a quake is, the more destruction it tends to cause.

The evil empire are after New Zealand's unobtainium. First shake up the locals, destroy

If you were planning to do seismic blasting off the coast of a Country, the best time to do it

Kaikoura was clearly the target now destroyed, and that basin is full of the precious oil for the

area should be protected from ALL sonic oil exploration and Naval activity!

The Worlds Biggest Seismic Testing Ship - The US "Amazon Warrior" -


Parked On Top Of New Zealand Fault Line during the November 13, 2016
Earthquake!

The Worlds biggest seismic blasting ship the Amazon Warrior was photographed off Rarangi
Beach in Cloudy Bay last night. Right on top of a major fault line. The ship was met with
protests when it arrived on the 13th! It was seen off the Coast of Kaikoura on Nov. 13th, but
its ETA from Panama was 10 am on Nov 14th in Wellington.
The Amazon Warrior came from Panama, was seen off of Kaikoura on the 13th and then went
to anchor off of Cloudy Bay at the top of the South Island, across the channel from Wellington.
If you are steaming to NZ from Panama, and your destination is Wellington, then there is no
need to go an extra 95 miles south before arriving at your charted destination; after a long sea
journey of 7,353 miles.

This fact alone shows that there was something very fishy going on in the state of
Aotearoa.

If their scheduled arrival was for 10am on the 14th in Wellington, then their trip to Kaikoura was
already calculated into their original ETA. The AW's estimated project-to-project transit speed is
17 knots or 19.5633 mph. Thus traveling the 7353 miles to NZ will take around 16 days, and
the last report in Vessel Finder was Oct 25, 2016 17:52 UTC which was probably the departure
time from Panama.

Roughly Oct 26 to Oct 13 is 19 days, so they left plenty of leeway to ensure they could make it
to Kaikoura before heading to Wellingtonhowever rather than 3 days leeway, it is only 2 days
because NZ is one day ahead of Panama.

On a ship like the Amazon Warrior... to travel 95 miles distance from Kaikoura to Wellington it
takes around 5 hours, so they have 1.75 days to engage in their seismic mayhem. The ship
only pulled into Cloudy Bay to avoid the protesters at Wellington. Yea, rather obvious isn't it. By
their deeds shall they shall be known.
Further information on the Amazon Warrior is available here and here.

The Amazon Warrior is owned by WesternGeco which is a geophysical services company. It is


headquartered in the Schlumberger House on the property of London Gatwick
Airport in Crawley, West Sussex, and also has an office in Denver CO. The company provides
reservoir imaging, monitoring, and development services.

The company, a business segment of Schlumberger, offers 3D and time-lapse seismic


surveys, electromagnetic surveys, and multicomponent surveys for delineating prospects and
reservoir management.

The giant defense contractor Raytheon, now holds all 12 HAARP patents. HAARP devises can
be made mobile on ships, such as the HAARP Sea-Based X-Band Radar (SBX) platform.
A HAARP phased array antenna system was transmitting the 2.5Hz ULF frequency and it
triggered the 9.0 magnitude earthquake off of Japan and ensuing tsunami.

The earthquake inducing 2.5 Hz ULF frequency was being broadcasted for two days prior to
March 11, 2011during which time the sky over Tokyo turned red as the ionosphere was
pulled down into the oxygen rich atmosphere. DARPA is also developing an airborne version of
HAARP.

Any country that is in the way of an oil pipeline, has valuable and strategic resources, or
threatens to drop the $US dollar standard is in danger of being chemtrailed, HAARP zapped
and attacked with earthquakes and extreme weather events.

The earthquake frequency can be focused on an area during a solar flare event or full moon
and once the earthquake is triggered, a seismic research vessel like the Amazon
Warrior can take readings of the shockwaves moving through the earths crust and get an
excellent picture of oil deposits even at very deep levels.

Ray Tomes:

America and NZ tested a system of using bombs to cause seismic activity and make tsunamis as a
weapon in 1944 off the coat of NZ (yes, 72 years ago). "Preliminary modelling suggests that the
earthquake was caused by a rupture of a northeast-striking fault that projects to the surface offshore"

Related: What happened in New Zealand's magnitude 7.5 earthquake?

The Amazon Warrior is due to commence imminent seismic testing for oil on behalf of
Norwegian Oil giant Statoil. Seismic testing involves the dragging of a seismic airgun along the
seabed, emitting seismic blasts every 10 seconds, 24 hours a day, from now until next May.
Statoil acquired their permit from American multinational oil corporation Chevron, and the
permit extends along the eastern seaboard and to depths that are unprecedented for New
Zealand.

Seismic blasting has been proven to be disruptive and harmful to sea life, including marine
mammals, and is opposed by coastal fishing interests and eco-tourism operators including
Ngi Tahus Whale Watch ventures.

Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX) is an American multinational energy corporation. One of


the successor companies of Standard Oil, it is headquartered in San Ramon, California, and
active in more than 180 countries.

Standard Oil Co. Inc. was an American oil producing, transporting, refining, and marketing
company. Established in 1870 by John D. Rockefeller as a corporation in Ohio, it was the
largest oil refiner in the world of its time.
Tesla-HAARP-Earthquakes

Tesla quaked Manhattan around Houston St. with a small resonant device attached to a beam
in his workshop/lab, and smashed it with a hammer when it started to shake things to a
dangerous level, which stopped the quake instantly.

One of his basic working principles was resonance, mechanical and electromagnetic. It's how
the Tesla coil drives up huge voltage on a low current.

HAARP is an adaptation of Tesla technology used for nefarious purposes. The


microwave array broils the Upper Atmosphere to 100F with a focused and steerable
electromagnetic beam, that lifts areas of the ionosphere by heating those areas.
Electromagnetic waves then bounce back onto earth and penetrate everything - living and
dead.

Along with chemtrails and this heating of the atmosphere with HAARP dries up precipitation
thus producing drought. I learnt somewhere they
HAARP uses sunspot cycles, sunspots, solar flares, hurricanes, fault tension build ups etc... for
a EMF assisted corporate-political warfare. HAARP is boost assist and director of natural
energies. They can even reflect of the moon to generate massive explosions.

On the HAARP web site in 2001 discussed successful moon bounce experiments (done since
the 1960's by HAM radio operators) see: HAARP array may use Moon as a reflector to reach
distant targets on Earth to create Nuclear-Sized Explosions Without Radiation!. In order to
target the moon you need a steerable array and three arrays minimum are required.

Related: HAARP likely not Primary Ionospheric array in Alaska

HAARP is capable of creating weather like hurricanes and tornadoes and tsunamis and
earthquakes. It is also capable of altering peoples moods.
NASA tomographic image of the subducted Farallon Plate in the mantle beneath eastern North America

Earth tomography is used by the oil and gas industry to find deposits. Tomography refers to
imaging by sections or sectioning, through the use of any kind of penetrating wave or
mechanical method. ELF waves or extremely low frequency waves can trigger an earthquake
on faults that have built up tension.

Thus a ship like Amazon Warrior with even weak exploratory ELF waves can trigger fault lines
into concussive domino effect earthquakes of any magnitude depending on how much
tension is held in the tectonic ridges.

HAARP Weapon How to Make an Earthquake

Conclusion

It appears that the earthquake was accidentally triggered by the Amazon Warrior's exploratory
ELF waves...then they quickly pulled out of the area to avoid being held responsible, but didn't
go to Wellington due to the protest, and possible fear of reprisal from the New Zealand Navy.

However it is illegal to travel through New Zealand waters and conduct personal "business"
PRIOR to checking in officially at one's port of entry first.

I conclude that the 11/13 quakes were accidentally triggered by an oil exploratory vessel
working for Chevron. So Chevron should be made responsible for picking up the tab for
repairing the damage to the countrys infrastructure and the lives of the people by this
little chiropractic adjustment to the backbone of New Zealand.

The ship went about their business conducting their "research" in New Zealand
territorial waters PRIOR to officially checking in with customs.

Plus this sortie was premeditated due to the original ETA, and so their actions were criminal
and secretive... by going for the gold (oil) first before being invited into the country.

However reading the shenanigans of US officials in Christchurch before and after the 2011
quake....it appears that the 11/13/16 quake swarm was likely deliberate, and appears to be an
act of economic war.

Goldman Sachs And the Sacking of New Zealand

Goldman Sachs appears to be undertaking economic warfare on areas to drive up the


prices of its commodities and stocks, and to lay claim to resources.
Canadian wildfires, pipeline attacks in Nigeria and the Gulf Oil Spill are likely sabotage
undertaken by Goldman Sachs to drive up prices for its own benefit.

In New Zealand now, the Christchurch and Kaikoura quakes and the Rena shipwreck
toxic spill event are acts of war against a sovereign nation for economic gain and to
intimidate and demoralize Kiwis into submission to the poisoning and sacking of their
country.

On 5 October 2011 the Rena ran aground near Tauranga, New Zealand, resulting in an
oil spill. The spill has been described as New Zealand's worst maritime environmental disaster.
The ship was carrying 1,368 containers, eight of which contained hazardous materials, as well
as 1,700 tonnes of heavy fuel oil and 200 tonnes of marine diesel oil.

Surely the oil company banker would know? Plus the usual dose of foreign spies with extra

Kaikoura was clearly the target now destroyed, and that basin is full of the precious oil for the
foreign bankers and the only thing stopping them was the people of Kaikoura - now homeless

6.2 Aftershock Shakes New Zealand After Powerful 7.8 Earthquake


Kills At Least 2
A new earthquake measuring 6.2 has struck 39km west of Kaikoura, New
Zealand. This is one of the most powerful in a series of tremors that
followed a 7.8 magnitude quake which struck the town, located some
180km northeast of Christchurch, on Sunday.

Local residents Chris and Viv Young look at damage caused by an earthquake along State Highway One near the
town of Ward, south of Blenheim on New Zealand's South Island, November 14, 2016

The quake took place at around 12:30am GMT at a depth of 8.3 kilometers, and was
initially measured at 6.8, but was later downgraded to 6.2 by USGS.

Why

Meanwhile GeoNet, the official source of geological hazard information for New Zealand,
measured the latest quake at 6.3 and said its depth was around 35 kilometers.

At least two people were killed following the initial quake which struck New Zealand just after
11:00am GMT on Sunday (12:02am Monday local time).

The ministry of civil defense immediately issued a warning saying that a destructive
tsunami with waves of up to five meters (16 feet) was possible. The ministry treated the
possibility of a tsunami as an event of life-threatening or national significance.
Tsunami warning sirens notified residents in coastal areas of New Zealand to leave for higher
ground. Police and emergency workers mobilized in the wake of the quake to help with
evacuations. Authorities eventually downgraded tsunami warnings around the country after
people fled and the waves arrived two hours later.

We've canceled the tsunami warning in place for Wellington to Banks Peninsula. Based on all
available data, the tsunami threat has now passed, Civil Defense said in their latest bulletin,
stressing that coastal areas could still experience unusual, strong currents and sea level
fluctuations.
New Zealand Prime Minister John Key confirmed that at least two people were killed. Police
said one person died in Kaikoura and another died in Mt. Lyford, a nearby ski resort, AP
reported. Police also say that several people had suffered minor injuries in Kaikoura.

A local state of emergency was declared in Kaikoura and Hurunui. Roads in Canterbury and
Marlborough have been severely damaged. Trains and ferries between North and South
Islands were also affected by the quake. Authorities are now assessing the extent of the
damage from the quake.

After the initial 7.8 disaster, all trains on South Island were initially stopped but KiwiRail later
resumed services between Christchurch and Invercargill, local media reported.

Power and phone lines outages were also reported in addition to the structural damage to
homes.

It was the most significant shock I can remember in Wellington, PM Key told
reporters. There will be quite major costs around roads and infrastructure.

Whose Work Was The Inspiration For The First [Supposedly]


Nuke-Free Country?
November 2 2016 | From: HelenCaldicott / GregHallett

New Zealand was the first country in the world to pass national nuclear-free
legislation. Marilyn Waring reflects on how Dr. Helen Caldicotts influence
culminated in the passage of the cornerstone of New Zealands foreign
policy.

If you were growing up in New Zealand and Australia post World War II, theres a chance
you knew about the United States using the Marshall Islands as a nuclear testing site
from 1947 until 1962.

In an agreement signed with the United Nations, the U.S. government held the Marshall
Islands as a trust territory and detonated nuclear devices in this pristine area of the Pacific
Ocean - leading, in some instances, to huge levels of radiation fall-out, health effects, and the
permanent displacement of many island people.

In all, the U.S. government conducted 105 underwater and atmospheric tests. You would have
also known that the British conducted seven atmospheric tests between 1956 and 1963 on
traditional Aboriginal land, in Maralinga, Australia.

It may be that you read Neville Shutes 1957 novel On the Beach, in which people in
Melbourne, Australia wait for deadly radiation to spread from a Northern Hemisphere nuclear
war.

This book made a memorable impact on Helen when she read it as a teenager. When I was a
teenager, some years later, I read Bertrand Russells 1959 classic, Common Sense and
Nuclear Warfare.

Both Helen and I saw Peter Watkins The War Game, a BBC documentary drama about
nuclear war and the consequences in an English city. In New Zealand the film was restricted
for children unless accompanied by an adult, so I had to get my father to take me. The War
Game won the Oscar for the best documentary in 1965.
France began its series of over 175 nuclear tests at Mururoa, in the South Pacific, in 1966. At
least 140 of these tests were above ground.

In 1973, the New Zealand and Australian governments took France to the World Court for
continued atmospheric testing, and forced the last tests underground. The testing finally came
to an end in 1976.

In New Zealand the U.S. Navy made regular visits between 1976 and 1983 with nuclear-
powered and, most likely, nuclear-armed, ships.
These visits produced spectacular protest fleets in the Auckland and Wellington harbours,
when hundreds of New Zealanders - in yachts of all sizes, in motor boats and canoes, even on
surf boards - surrounded the vessels and tried to bring them to a complete stop.

By 1978, a campaign began in New Zealand to declare borough and city council areas
nuclear-free and, by the early 1980s, this symbolic movement had quickly gained momentum,
covering more than two-thirds of the New Zealand population.

Helen Caldicott and I had not met up to this point, but these were shared parts of our history
and consciousness when Helen visited New Zealand in 1983.

Helen Caldicott graduated with a medical degree from University of Adelaide Medical School in
1961. She moved to the United States, becoming an Instructor in paediatrics at Harvard
Medical School and was on the staff of the Childrens Hospital Medical Centre in Boston,
Massachusetts.

In the late 1970s, Helen became the President of Physicians for Social Responsibility. This
group was founded when Helen was finishing medical school, quickly making its mark by
documenting the presence of Strontium-90, a highly radioactive waste product of atmospheric
nuclear testing, in childrens teeth.

The landmark finding eventually led to the Limited Nuclear Test Ban treaty, which ended
atmospheric nuclear testing.

But it was the Three Mile Island accident that changed Helens life. An equipment failure
resulted in a loss of cooling water to the core of a reactor at the Three Mile Island Nuclear
Generating Station in Pennsylvania, causing a partial meltdown.

Operator failure meant that 700,000 gallons of radioactive cooling water ended up in the
basement of the reactor building.
It was the most serious nuclear accident to that date in the U.S. Helen published Nuclear
Madness the same year. In it she wrote:

As a physician, I contend that nuclear technology threatens life on our planet with extinction. If present
trends continue, the air we breathe, the food we eat, and the water we drink will soon be contaminated with
enough radioactive pollutants to pose a potential health hazard far greater than any plague humanity has
ever experienced.

In 1980, Helen resigned from her paid work positions to work full time on the prevention of
nuclear war.

In 1982, Canadian director Terre Nash filmed a lecture given by Helen Caldicott to a New York
state student audience. Nashs consequent National Film Board of Canada documentary If You
Love this Planet was released during the term of U.S. President Ronald Reagan, at the height
of Cold War nuclear tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union.

The U.S. Department of Justice moved quickly to designate the film foreign
propaganda, bringing a great deal of attention to the film. It went on to win the 1982 Academy
Award for Documentary Short Subject. That same year, Helen addressed about 750,000
people in Central Park, New York in the biggest anti-nuke rally in the United States to that date.

In 1983, I was serving as a member of the New Zealand parliament, having been elected eight
years earlier at the age of 23.

Our parliament established a Disarmament and Arms Control Select Committee to conduct
hearings on the possibility of making New Zealand a nuclear-free zone.
During this critically important time, Helen was invited to New Zealand on a lecture tour. The
documentary If You Love This Planet was shown at her speaking engagements. I did not get to
meet her, nor hear any of her lectures in person, as I was working in parliament every night.
But I did follow the media coverage.

Helen told the magazine the Listener about having observed five-star generals in U.S.
congressional and senate committees complaining that the Russian missiles were bigger than
the American ones.

The Russian missiles are very big (and) inaccurate and clumsy. America has very small, very accurate
missiles, which are better at killing people and destroying targets, she explained.

A frequent message in her talks to New Zealand audiences was the redundant overkill capacity
of both superpowers. Caldicott noted to her audiences that [T]he U.S. has 30,000 bombs and
Russia 20,000.

I had sat in a New Zealand parliamentary committee hearing some months earlier, when a
government colleague, brandishing a centrefold of a Russian submarine, excitedly called for us
to Look at how big it is.

I had thought that no one would believe me if I had repeated such an inane banality - when an
adult male was more impressed by the size of the submarine than its capacity to destroy life on
this planet.

Helens public addresses were grounded in the potential impact of nuclear weapons. Imagine
a 20-megaton bomb targeted on Auckland, she told audiences in New Zealand.

The explosion, five times the collective energy of all the bombs dropped in the Second World War, digs a
hole three-quarters of a mile wide by 800 feet deep and turns people, buildings and dirt into radioactive
dust.
Everyone up to six miles will be vaporised, and up to 20 miles they will be dead or lethally injured. People
will be instantly blinded looking at the blast within 40 miles. Many will be asphyxiated in the fire storm.

Helen did not hold back, explaining that nuclear war means blindness, burning, starvation,
disease, lacerations, haemorrhaging, millions of corpses and an epidemic of disease. Helens
dramatic and blunt style reduced many in her audiences to tears.

She always ended her talks with a call to action - especially to parents - as she strongly
believes that nuclear disarmament is the ultimate medical and parenting issue of our time.

To those who would claim New Zealand was not a target she had a short reply:

Trident submarines in ports are targeted. They are a first strike target. It is much easier to destroy subs
when they are in dock than it is when they are submerged in the ocean.

In 2015, I asked Helen how she managed to deliver such bad news and yet keep her
audiences with her. Being a doctor helps because you have to learn to negotiate with a patient
and with language they can understand, she explained.
You have to convert the medical diagnosis and treatment to lay language. I also have to keep them awake
sometimes by letting them laugh because it relieves their tension and because the stuff I say is pretty
awful. Helen told me that she practices global preventative medicine.

Helens tour through New Zealand in 1983 had a huge, and lasting, impact. At one stop, Helen
addressed over 2,000 people at a public event in Auckland. The librarian with whom I
corresponded looking for old newspaper reports of Helens visit, wrote to me:

Her chillingly detailed description of the effects of a nuclear device detonated over the hall in which we
were sitting remains rooted in my psyche to this day!

The other message I most recall is the dichotomy she evoked between the destructive drive of old men
rulers, the instigators of war, versus the procreative energy of mothers most impelled to oppose them -
which, however reductive, retains the compelling logic of a truism!

Helens approach was transformative in New Zealand. Helens speaking events packed
auditoriums, and overflows of audiences had to be accommodated using loud speaker
systems.

People responded strongly to this woman, whose life work involved caring for children,
speaking about medical effects of fallout, and speaking without the use of the clichd military
and defence ideological rhetoric that treated people as if they were simpletons who couldnt
understand.

Her speeches inspired people to act. After Helen spoke, the volume of mail delivered to my
parliamentary office increased - particularly from women.

On May 24, 1983, 20,000 women wearing white flowers and armbands and holding banners
with peace signs marched quietly up a main street in Auckland to hold a huge rally and call for
New Zealand to be nuke-free. It was one of the largest womens demonstrations in New
Zealands history.

In her book, Peace, Power and Politics How New Zealand Became Nuclear Free, Maire
Leadbetter writes:

I am one of many activists who think of Helen Caldicotts visit as the point when the peace movement
began to grow exponentially Helen had a magical ability to motivate previously passive citizens to
become activists.

Shortly after Helens visit to New Zealand, in 1984, I advised that I intended to vote for the
opposition-sponsored nuclear-free New Zealand legislation. This prompted conservative Prime
Minister Rob Muldoon to call a snap election. Muldoon told media that my feminist anti-
nuclear stance threatened his ability to govern.

The new Labour Government of 1984 passed the New Zealand Nuclear Free Zone,
Disarmament and Arms Control Act in 1987, the worlds first national nuclear-free legislation.
Dr. Helen Caldicotts influence had culminated in the passage of the cornerstone of New
Zealands foreign policy.

New Zealand's Nuclear History?

Unfortunately, technically speaking, New Zealand is NOT nuclear free. We have food-irradiating
facilities (sounds super healthy) and according to researcher Greg Hallett - a whole lot more in our
past...

According to Hallett, "The Wairakei Geothermal Power Station was not for the production of power, but was
built by the British Atomic Energy Commission to produce heavy water for the manufacture of nuclear
weapons."

The Wairakei Geothermal Power Station was a front for heavy water production to be used for nuclear
power and the production of deuterium and tritium for hydrogen bombs. These were a thousand times
more powerful than the first atom bomb and were first tested in at least three different locations."

...

During the nuclear scare, Kiwis were buying houses in Taupo to be away from a nuclear blast, which they
thought would be aimed at Auckland and Wellington.

The funny thing was, Taupo was the only nuclear target the Russians had in New Zealand. At least one
nuclear weapon was aimed squarely at the Wairakei Geothermal heavy water power station which
produced much of the heavy water for the Western world.

...

But more importantly, New Zealand took over the production of nuclear detonators from Norway in 1961.
Norway was producing detonators for nuclear bombs during and after World War Two and they paid quite a
heavy price in casualties. After World War Two the Norwegians said, A plague on both of your houses.
Take this shit away, and they stopped production."

The Americans didnt want the job as theyd be under attack, so New Zealand held its hand up highest and
produced nuclear detonators in secret.

Thats Walter Nashs duplicitous Labour government for you [195760]. He was charged with sedition while
fronting as a man of peace and producing nuclear detonators. No doubt he on-sold any secrets gained to
the Russians. But this also has a more recent history to it.

...
If you went up the hill towards Eastbourne then took the alternative route through the gorse-covered hills
to Wainuiomata at the back of Gracefield, there was a sign saying Nuclear Research Facility. This is
where the firing devices for the nuclear blast at Mururoa were made.

New Zealand supplied the nuclear detonation gear to the French via the British. Yes, it was New Zealand
that provided the detonation gear for the atmospheric nuclear tests at Mururoa Atoll from July 1966, and for
the underground tests from 1975. "

...

There was a big stink in the armed forces about the anti-nuclear protests because they violated secret
military pacts that went back years. Labour wanted the military to act against the pacts and thats why the
military decided to take part in the killing of Prime Minister Norman Kirk."

...

In 1981, the known gay and child sex abuser Colin Moyle was re-elected to Labour and became the
Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries from 198490. He assisted the Russians in placing submarine locator
beacons for Russian nuclear-powered submarines for a nuclear strike against America."

...

Helen Clarks anti-nuclear policy only applied to American ships. Russian nuclear-armed vessels were
never questioned. Such duplicity is consistent with those converted to an agenda-driven ideology from a
foreign country for non-national purposes, in exchange for hiding their sexuality. This results in treasonous
activities tantamount to war and thats what we got so very close to nuclear war from NZ.

...

"New Zealand is the only Nuclear-Free State that fails to put to print its history of manufacturing nuclear
material. As well as heavy water, New Zealand also manufactured detonators for nuclear bombs and
Prime Minister Muldoon was set on testing a nuclear power station in at least three different locations."

The first email sent by the State Department to head of the department Hillary Clinton
was sent a full 6 hours before the actual quake hit. Washington being 18 hours behind
NZST. The second email was sent as the quake hit.

Bayer's Monsanto Deal To Be Closely Watched By New Zealand


Farmers As Agri-Chemical Players Dwindle
September 22 2016 | From: NationalBusinessReview

Bayer's US$66 billion acquisition of Monsanto, creating the world's biggest


supplier of seeds and agri-chemicals to farmers, will be closely watched by
New Zealand's rural sector as the latest in a series of deals that has shrunk
the number of competitors in the market.

Bayer and Monsanto are two of the big seven companies selling agricultural chemicals
in New Zealand.
Related: Monsanto to be acquired by Bayer, the Nazi-era IG Farben 'crimes against
humanity' poison chemical company

Of the other five, Dow Chemical is in the process of a global merger with DuPont and Swiss
seed giant Syngenta is close to being acquired by China National Chemical Corp, which
already owns Adama.

Of the others, ASX-listed Nufarm had a distribution agreement with Monsanto for its Roundup
glyphosphate products up until 2013, while Bayer rival BASF reportedly held inconclusive talks
with Monsanto earlier this year

Bayer chief executive Werner Baumann has indicated the companies would need to file for
clearance in about 30 jurisdictions for the deal and get antitrust approval in the US, Canada,
Brazil and the EU, the Financial Times reports. The deal has stoked concern among US farmer
groups that they may face price increases for agricultural products.

Federated Farmers arable farming chair Guy Wigley called it:

"A significant development for New Zealand farming. It's a very finely tuned marketplace and farmers are
highly sensitive to pricing," he said. "The costs and benefits of using all their products are keenly
understood."

Wigley likened agri-chemicals to the pharmaceuticals industry, where there was plenty of
competition for older products that had come off patent while companies sought a premium to
cover research and development costs for new products.

The Commerce Commission said it is unable to comment on whether the transaction would
require its scrutiny. However, John Hampton, professor of seed technology and director of the
Lincoln University Seed Research Centre, said it may require antitrust approval.

While Monsanto is the world's largest seed company, its GM crops such as Roundup-ready
Canola, soybean and maize aren't sold in New Zealand and its local sales in that market are
confined to vegetable seeds produced by its Seminis and De Ruiter units.
Related: The Complete History Of Monsanto, The Worlds Most Evil Corporation

Bayer has a smaller seeds business but is mainly in the pest and disease product side of the
agri-chemical market, including seed treatments, while Monsanto's chemicals were more in the
herbicide and weed control side of the market.

All up there were about half a dozen major companies in the seed sector, "so I can't see there
would be a major impact in what's happening in seeds in New Zealand," Hampton said, adding
that he speculated that Monsanto's GM technology was a major driver for Bayer's takeover
offer.

Globally, there was no new herbicide chemistry emerging and increased resistance and
regulatory hurdles for some existing ones. At the same time growing demand "for more
sustainable methods of weed and pest control," he said.

Chemicals aren't the future. Now the industry is looking at interactions between microbes and plants -
biocontrols," he said.

The past five years have been marked by a number of acquisitions of small biocontrol
companies by big agri-chemical producers "being astute and looking to the future". Research
was now focussed in two main areas - GM technology and the use of bacteria and fungi to
control pests and diseases and to promote plant growth, he said.

Industry group Agcarm, which represents about 85 percent of the New Zealand agri-chemicals
market, has 14 members listed as crop protection companies. It estimates the New Zealand
market is worth $250 million to $300 million.
Bayer's offer for Monsanto of US$128 a share in cash is about 20 percent more than the last
trading price of US$106.76. Bayer said the deal would create "significant value" with annual
synergies of about US$1.5 billion after three years "plus additional synergies from integrated
solutions in future years".

Race Relations In New Zealand


September 12 2016 | From: NZPCR

Last week the Race Relations Commissioner Dame Susan Devoy wrote an
open letter to all New Zealanders. She wants to hear your views on racism
in New Zealand. The letter is part of the Human Rights Commissions first
nationwide anti-racism campaign.
Dame Susan says the Thats Us campaign, which asks Kiwis to share their own stories
about racism, intolerance and hatred in New Zealand, is about the kind of people we
want to be, and the kind of country we want our kids growing up in.

If you would like to reply to Dame Susans letter to you, her email address
is SusanD@hrc.co.nz or feedback can be provided through the special
website www.thatsus.co.nz.

The Human Rights Commission has justified the campaign on the basis that New Zealand is
an extremely diverse society, and since diverse societies elsewhere have become more
racially intolerant, they expect it to occur here too. With around 400 formal complaints about
racism received every year, the Commission wants public feedback: if were going to better
understand racism then we need to know what it is which in itself seems extraordinary!

In particular, they highlight casual or quiet racial intolerance the type that they say occurs
in everyday life and often goes unreported. As an example they cite the case of a woman
registering students at a university, who smiles at every other student but the brown ones.

Clearly this campaign is an exercise in redefining racism to become substantially wider than
what most rational people would assume it to be. It is a further example of the arrant nonsense
emanating from the Race Relations Commissioner and the Human Rights Commission.

This weeks NZCPR Guest Commentator, broadcaster Lindsay Perigo, who shares with
us a speech he delivered at a recent debate with Dame Susan Devoy, believes the Race
Relations Commissioner and the Human Rights Commission should be abolished:
Id abolish Dame Susan. Nothing personal! Id just abolish the office of Race Relations Commissar and
with it, the entire Human Rights Commission, to which I routinely refer as the Human Wrongs
Commissariat.

This cossetted coterie of taxpayer-supported fascists of the left just want to impose their precious, prissy,
puritanical Political Correctness upon all of us. Theyre our Thought Police, prattling on about diversity
when theyre attempting to outlaw the most important diversity of all, ideological diversity and make their
Political Correctness compulsory.

Everything in their universe would be either illegal or compulsory. In my universe theyd have to
find real jobs and the legislation that set them up would be repealed.

The legislation under which the Race Relations Commissioner and the Human Rights
Commission operate is the Human Rights Act 1993, which essentially enshrines the United
Nations human rights agenda into our domestic law.

As a result, the Commission is now promoting the highly controversial United Nations
Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, which Helen Clarks Labour Government
considered too radical to support.

While the National Government signed up in 2010 at the behest of the Maori Party Prime
Minister John Key went to some lengths to assure the New Zealand public that it was a non-
binding aspirational goal. Yet here we are with the Human Rights Commission now proactively
promoting the Declaration, including through brochures which advocate Maori self
determination and self government.

One of the Human Rights Commissions main roles is to pursue those they claim are
discriminating against others.
Dr Paul Moon, a professor of history at the Maori
Development Unit of the Auckland University of
Technology, explained how, as a result of the publication of
his book, This Horrid Practice, in 2008 which portrayed
cannibalism as a violent and widespread practice among
traditional Maori he was the subject of an anonymous
complaint to the Human Rights Commission.

But it doesnt even need a person to lay a complaint for the


Human Rights Commission to act as the
as a former Massey University Economist, Dr Greg
Clydesdale found out.

The Commission got so worked up about a research paper


he had prepared from Statistics New Zealand data,
showing that Polynesian immigration was fuelling an
underclass, that a 69 page report was compiled on his
case without a single complaint about his paper ever
being received.

Such investigations, supposedly to


can not only destroy reputations and careers, but they
create an atmosphere of fear and intimidation that seriously
undermines our fundamental right to free expression a
freedom, that is especially critical in an academic
environment.

There also remains an on-going concern that these


government officials are overly biased in favour of
minorities. This was certainly the case back in 1988, when
a scandal over a Maori activists call to kill a white, forced
the government to change the law.

According to the Hansard of the Parliamentary debates at the time, the Race Relations
conciliator refused to censure Hannah Jackson, who made her inflammatory statement at the
University of Auckland marae he only censured a newspaper editor for reporting the event.

The incident was considered to be so serious, that it caused Parliament to repeal section 9A of
the Race Relations Act, which made it illegal to publish, broadcast or make public statements
likely to excite hostility or ill-will against, or bring into contempt or ridicule, any group of
persons on the ground of their colour, race, or ethnic or national origins, since it did not apply
on a marae.

As Winston Peters, then MP for Tauranga, explained in the debate;

The Race Relations Conciliator, when asked to consider an offensive statement Go out and kill a white
and be a hero did nothing.

He said that he had no role whatever to play. He then attacked the Auckland Star. A person in Auckland
made a totally outrageous statement that offended 99 percent of New Zealanders, and said that someone
should go out and kill a white and be a hero.

The Race Relations Conciliator could not be moved to say one word of opprobrium about it The view and
the myth that if one belongs to a minority one cannot be guilty of racist behaviour are being reinforced, and
they are rubbish.

As a result of that controversy, Section 9A of the Race Relations Act was


eventually replaced by Sections 61 and 131 of the Human Rights Act 1993.

Section 61 addressed the kill a white issue by prohibiting the use of words which are
threatening, abusive, or insulting or likely to excite hostility against any group of persons on the
ground of race, not only in public places, but also in any place where the person using the
words knew or ought to have known that the words were reasonably likely to be published

In addition, the new law clarified the fact that the media can legally report on such matters.

Section 131 of the Act established the fact that inciting racial disharmony is a criminal offence
punishable by a fine of up to $7,000 or imprisonment of up to 3 months. As a safeguard,
however, under Section 132, the consent of the Attorney General is needed before any
prosecution can be instituted.

However, in spite of there being a high threshold for prosecution, the activities of the Race
Relations Commissioner continue to have a chilling effect on free speech especially their
media monitoring project, aimed at naming and shaming news outlets critical of Maori rights.

Over the years, vested Maori interests have learnt to use human rights laws to seek
advantage, by using accusations of racism or intolerance to close down the debate, whenever
anyone speaks out against their agenda.

The New Zealand Centre for Political Research has been the subject of such accusation when
commenting on important matters such as the governments plan to establish iwi control of the
countrys fresh water. More recently we have been criticised for publishing details of where
local body candidates stand on the vexed question of unelected representatives with voting
rights being appointed onto Councils.

As an independent organisation we remain undeterred, and congratulate our newsletter


readers, who are also standing up to the racism being expressed by iwi and the likes of Dame
Susan.
Our Local Government Election Project is a community service thanks to the help of
newsletter readers, the Vote 2016 index HERE provides details of which candidates around the
country oppose the appointment of unelected representatives who cannot be held to account
by their local community onto their councils.

With voting papers due to be sent out next week, we are encouraging readers to visit the
website and vote for candidates brave enough to stand up against iwi control of councils. The
direct link to this resource is www.nzcpr.com/local-body-elections-2016 so please feel free to
spread the word and help assist others in making their voting decisions.

Some iwi regard the notion that only elected representatives should have the right to vote on
councils as old world thinking. They seem to believe that Treaty settlement money and
resources gives them a supreme right to by-pass democracy and have their representatives
appointed to sit and vote at council decision-making tables.

They are not only pressuring councils for this, but some are threatening them as well:

If iwi are not valued by their local community and encouraged, rather than discouraged, to participate and
invest in decision-making at all levels of council they will rightfully invest their economic and political
influence in other regions.

But in our view it is tribalism that is old world thinking, not democracy. A progressive society
needs to respect cultural differences but move into the future as one society with one
sovereign and common laws. That view will no doubt continue to attract the criticism of those
who profit from a separatist agenda, and those like the Race Relations Office who are part of
that industry.
Iwi are also pushing for seats on local councils through the Treaty settlement process and
central government is capitulating with legislation to that effect.

Probably the best known case is that of the Independent Maori Statutory Board, which was
established during Aucklands amalgamation in 2010. The legislation states that the nine
member board was set up as an advisory body with a maximum of 2 persons to sit as
members on each of the Auckland Councils committees that deal with the management and
stewardship of natural and physical resources.

The new Auckland Council however, appointed members onto many other Council committees
and gave them voting rights.

The interesting question, therefore, is whether the candidates standing for the new Auckland
Council would support a motion to return the Statutory Board to the advisory role envisioned by
the Government when the legislation was drawn up. In other words, would they be prepared to
take away the Boards representation on many of the Council committees and their voting
rights?
The reality is that New Zealand society does not want to be divided by race, even though
this is being aggressively promoted by the Human Rights Commission including
putting increasing pressure on every local authority in the country to adopt Maori
wards.

While this move might find favour with the iwi elite, it most certainly is not supported by
the vast majority of communities, who simply want to keep race out of local politics.

So back to Lindsay Perigos question should our Human Rights laws be axed?

Its also question that is being asked in Australia and in Britain, where there is a growing
recognition that there is no need to protect individuals from the actions of others through
human rights legislation.

With New Zealand already having an established Bill of Rights to limit the power of the state
and protect our freedom, surely its now time to abandon the legislative human rights approach,
which is increasingly doing the opposite expanding the power of the state and limiting our
freedom!

Local Councils, Medical Trials And GMOs: Call For Nick Smiths
Resignation
September 8 2016 | From: Scoop

The scaremongering and misrepresentation of the Auckland Unitary


councils long term plan shows that Dr. Nick Smith is deliberately twisting
and misrepresenting the facts, and raising fears that important medical
research will be banned. Yet he knows any such concern is false.
The AUP expressly excludes medical and veterinary applications stating Potential GMO
activities of relevance include GM food crops, trees, grasses, animals and pharma
crops, but,exclude research within contained laboratories involving GMOs, medical
applications involving the manufacture and use of GM products

Related: Pesticide Special Report

In seeking to mislead the public, the Minister is following the lead of Federated Farmers of New
Zealand. Federated Farmers challenged the right of councils, who govern under the Resource
Management Act (RMA), to place precautionary GE wording in their plans, in the Environment
Court.

The challenge was not upheld. They then appealed the Environment Courts decision to the
High Court, which has now dismissed the appeal.

The Minister's anti-democratic panicked response of introducing a new law that expressly
prohibits councils to consider environmental and land use protections around GMOs, shows a
cynical contempt for due process and local democracy.
It is an indictment on Dr. Smith and shows that he is not working for the good of the country but
is using his powers and influence to pursue an agenda outside of his responsibilities as a
Minister.

This serious breach of conduct transgresses his responsibilities as a minister. He is apparently


unable to avoid his conflicts of interest around the GE issue.

This terrible situation leads us to call for his resignation as a Minister of the Crown.

Local Councils, Medical Trials And GMOs

Medical trials involving genetically modified vaccines and other GM


treatments will still be allowed under planning changes Auckland and three
other local councils are making.
Auckland councillors this week agreed to a ban on the general release of genetically
modified organisms under the city's Unitary Plan.

That has led to concerns that a medical trial involving genetically modified organisms would be
stopped in its tracks.

Environment Minister Dr Nick Smith said that the Government would review the
"appropriateness of councils being involved in regulating genetically modified organisms".

A trial for liver cancer vaccine Pexa-Vec is being conducted at Auckland Hospital which involves a GMO.
The new Auckland Unitary Plan prohibits the release of any GMO and would not allow any such future
medical treatments, Dr Smith said in a press release.

The SMC put together the following Expert Q&A with Dr Kerry Grundy, Team Leader
(Futures Planning), Whangarei District Council. (Contact Dr Grundy on 09 430 4200)

Dr Grundy is convenor of the Inter-council Working party on GMO Risk Evaluation and
Management Options (comprising Auckland Council, Whangarei District Council, Far
North District Council, and Northland Regional Council).*

1: Will existing and/or future medical trials involving GMOs be banned in these regions
as a result of the plan changes?

I can confirm that the GMO provisions in all planning documents do not affect medical applications
involving GMOs including present and future applications. These are permitted."
"The plan provisions apply only to outdoor use of GMOs, i.e. GMOs released to the environment or outdoor
field trial of GMOs. They do not apply to indoor use in contained facilities, laboratories, hospitals or to
medical applications or most veterinary applications."

2. As part of the plan provisions, do the Councils require any additional notification of,
or approval for, GM-related trials (medical or otherwise) than is currently required
through the likes of the Environmental Protection Authority?

The councils plan provisions make outdoor field trials of GMOs a discretionary activity under the RMA.
This means they need a resource consent from council to conduct a field trial in addition to approval from
the EPA."

"The resource consent will require strict liability from the party conducting the trial for any environmental or
economic damage that may occur as a result of the trial together with a bond to cover any costs should
they arise (HSNO does not require this)."

"This does not apply to medical trials as medical applications are specifically excluded from council
provisions. In addition, the definition of field trials in the plan provisions refers only to 'outdoor' field trials."

3. Are there any specific provisions relating to patients involved in medical trials who
are being treated with GM therapies - such as the Pexa-Vec liver cancer vaccine? For
instance, relating to where the vaccines can be administered, or where patients are
housed while receiving treatment?

There are no specific provisions relating to patients involved in medical trials who are being treated with
GM therapies presently or in the future. Medical applications are not subject to the plan provisions. They
are treated as permitted activities under the RMA. They require no consent from council. Council has no
role in relation to them."

4. Are there currently any outdoor trials of GMOs underway in any of the regions
governed by the four Councils that have contributed to the plan?

There are no outdoor field trials that I am aware of underway in any of the jurisdictions covered by the
councils in Auckland and Northland who have or are in the process of putting GMO provisions in their
planning documents."

5. What provisions have the Councils made for the possible future introduction of new
genetic technologies, such as gene-editing techniques, and their evaluation and
classification as GM according to the plan?
Councils have made no specific provisions for possible future introduction of new genetic techniques and
their classification as GM according to the plans. Councils only regulate GMOs as defined in the HSNO
Act."

"The plans definition of a GMO is the same as the HSNO definition. If an organism produced by a new
technique is included as a GMO under the HSNO Act it will be treated as such by the plans. If an organism
produced by a new technique is not defined as a GMO under HSNO it will not be caught by the plan
provisions."

*The GMO plan provisions that are in the Auckland Unitary Plan and in plan changes to the WDC and
FNDC GMO plan changes are based on research and documentation produced by the Working Party.

Amalgamation By Stealth? Local Body Developments

Local Govt Bill

At the recent local government conference widespread concern was expressed about the potential loss of
local democracy if a revamped Local Government Commission (LGC) is authorised to amalgamate
various bodies and require the establishment of commercial agencies with little if any elected directors.

Discussion almost entirely ignored the most radical proposal now before the House: to make the LGC a
Crown agent (that is, subject to explicit direction by a minister) and to exempt from the Official Information
Act any information from or about the process leading to a decision of the LGC, for example, to
amalgamate.

Perhaps the bill is just provocative; perhaps fears of making local government a creature of the central
executive are groundless. If not, this is a significant constitutional change.

Judith Aitken
Retiring Wellington Regional Councillor

I do not recall seeing anything in the HB Today about submissions which have, of course,
closed. The bill is before parliament on its second reading before reaching a Select Committee.

This is of great concern because, once again, our democracy is being challenged BEHIND
CLOSED DOORS and the unwanted result will be presented to us as fait accompli too
late for us to do anything, again.
This is the Link sent to me from parliament: Local Government Act 2002 Amendment Bill (No 2)

Local Body Developments


"If at first you dont succeed, try, try again. Then quit. Theres no point in
being a damn fool about it!" - W.C. Field, American comedian

Not content with the failure of the Local Government Commission to merge councils in
Northland, the Hawkes Bay, and Wellington, National is now proposing to put their
amalgamation agenda into effect via the back door, by using a new local government bill
to increase the power of the Commission, while removing important democratic rights.

The Local Government Act 2002 Amendment Bill (No 2) is now in front of Parliaments Local
Government and Environment Select Committee and is open for submissions until Thursday
28 July full details can be seen here.

The Bills preamble explains that it aims to lift local authority performance, as part of the
Governments overall objective of improving public services and building a more productive
and competitive economy. It does this by streamlining the process for combining and co-
ordinating services, infrastructure and resources across regions and towns, through a greater
use of Council-Controlled Organisations (CCOs).

As the Local Government Minister Sam Lotu-Iiga explained in his first reading speech:

"Communities in Northland, Hawkes Bay, and Wellington have told us that they do not want full-scale
amalgamation, but this bill provides a middle ground. Communities will retain their elected councils; the
councils, in turn, will be able to work more collaboratively to manage infrastructure and services across our
regions. This will deliver more joined-up, cost-effective services and better value for our ratepayers.

So while the present legislation promotes council amalgamations as the way to gain the scale
required to combine services, the new Bill facilitates the sharing of services between councils,
without the need for amalgamation unless it is agreed by all councils.

While under the present law only individuals, groups, councils, and the Minister can propose
amalgamations, the Bill extends that power to the Local Government Commission. To balance
that, the Bill includes an automatic poll of citizens over any Commission-led re-organisation
proposal, including the transfer of water, transport, or Resource Management Act functions
from one local authority to another.

However, theres a catch. The Bill removes an important democratic safeguard, namely the
automatic right of residents and ratepayers to petition councils for a binding poll on any
amalgamation proposal if supported by 10 percent of electors.

As a result, under the new Bill, if a number of councils jointly agree on amalgamation,
local citizens will have no right to call for a poll. This has already led to speculation that
councils might be encouraged to collude in order to circumvent a public poll.

We strongly recommend that the ability of residents and ratepayers to petition their local
authority for a poll on any amalgamation or reorganisation proposals should either be re-
instated, or the provision for an automatic poll on Commission-led changes should be
extended to cover all amalgamation and re-organisation proposals.

The point is that local ratepayers have a fundamental right to have a say in the structure of
representative decision-making in their communities, since they are the ones who fund council
infrastructure and assets.

There is also a concern that a central requirement in the current law, that there must be
demonstrable community support for an amalgamation proposal to proceed, has been
removed. Instead, the new Bill focuses on the likelihood of significantcommunity opposition to
any reorganisation

In effect, this change in presumption from an amalgamation needing community support to


proceed, to the lesser hurdle that it should go ahead, unless there is significant opposition,
dramatically lowers the threshold.
We suggest that the old standard is the correct one new local government re-organisation
proposals should have to demonstrate that they have the support of their community in order to
proceed.

When community support was used as a benchmark by the Commission in the last
three amalgamation attempts, the results were conclusive: in Northland, 93 percent of
submitters opposed a single council, in Wellington, 89 percent were opposed, and in the
Hawkes Bay, where a poll was held, 66 percent of voters were opposed.

In defence of the new Bill, the Local Government Minister explained:

"The projected costs of maintaining and building core infrastructure such as water, sewerage, flood
protection and roading are growing exponentially faster than the ability of local ratepayers to bear.

The bill enables the development of shared infrastructure ownership and management across regions. This
is essential for developing regions and communities.

But this is also a key reason why communities should remain closely involved in the reform
process the creation of CCOs for the delivery of water and roading services, could remove a
major part of the budget of many small councils, signalling their radical downsizing into largely
regulatory agencies.

Further, since concerns remain that the Commission, on behalf of the Minister, could create
CCOs, without the approval of the council or the community, it is imperative that community
involvement and support remains a priority in the Bill especially given the dreadful
problems that are still evident in Auckland, where residents and ratepayers had
amalgamation forced upon them.

Meanwhile, the Local Government Commission is wasting no time. Although their plans for
Auckland-style super cities and Maori Statutory Boards in Northland, Wellington and the
Hawkes Bay were rejected, they are now informing councils that they intend to reconsider
other restructuring options to promote greater efficiencies in the regions. They plan to progress
their re-organisation proposals under the new law.

If you are concerned about the potential erosion of local democracy, and the failure of the
proposed law to adequately safeguard public involvement in major council reorganisation
decision-making, we would urge you to send in a quick submission on the Bill outlining your
concerns by Thursday.

With local body elections just weeks away, local government reform is not the only thing being
dumped on councils.

This weeks NZCPR Guest Commentator, Fiona Mackenzie, an Auckland-based political


commentator, outlines how councillors in the region are having to battle against a power grab
by tribal interests for control of the crucial Hauraki Gulf.

The Hauraki Gulf is a massive coastal area covering 1.2 million hectares from Mangawai in the
North, to Waihi in the South, and Great Barrier Island in the East, encompassing Auckland, the
Hauraki Plains and the Coromandel Peninsula. It includes the Ports of Auckland, shipping
routes, marinas, fisheries, marine farms, and other commercial and recreational facilities.

At the present time, as Fiona explains, the area is controlled by the Hauraki Gulf Marine
Park Act:

"Since 2000, the Gulf has been managed by the Hauraki Gulf Forum with Auckland Council as its
administering authority. Its 21-member board includes Ministry bureaucrats, elected representatives of all
the regions councils, plus 6 self-nominated tribal representatives appointed by the Minister of
Conservation.

She outlines how, at their meeting last month, iwi tried to force through a re-organisation
proposal for a new 16-member Board, constituted on the 50:50 Maori sovereignty co-
governance model, whereby 8 members would represent Maori and 8 members would
represent everyone else, giving tribes unassailable control of the Board and the Hauraki Gulf.

Under their scheme, the number of iwi representatives on the new Forum would be increased
from 6 to 8. The number of councillors representing the vast Auckland region would be cut from
7 to 1. Representatives of the five other councils in the area the Hauraki District Council, the
Matamata-Piako District Council, the Thames-Coromandel District Council, the Waikato District
Council, and the Waikato Regional Council would be cut from 5 to 2.

And the number of public servants representing the Minister of Maori Affairs, the Minister of
Conservation, and the Minister of Fisheries, would be increased from 3 to 5.

All in all, only 3 of the 16 representatives on the proposed new governance body would be
elected to represent the public interest and the almost 2 million people who live in the area.

Under the proposal the new iwi-controlled Board would demand statutory authority to enact
legislation over the entire area.

Why, in a democracy based on equal rights and the rule of law, such a racist proposal could
have progressed to the point where it is being seriously considered, is hard to fathom
although its not altogether surprising, given that the long-term agenda of Maori tribal leaders is
to gain sufficient status and power to control the countrys major resources.

According to Fiona:

"The meeting became rather acrimonious when some expressed concern at this attempt to shove the
recommendations through. Understandably, they wished to have it reviewed by their respective
organisations and obtain a mandate before voting. The inevitable claims of racism were made.

She is concerned that those in positions of power on the Auckland Council, who support the
sovereignty cause, might manipulate the process so the proposal may not be decisively
defeated, as it should be:

"At the time of writing, the Forums Auckland City Councillors did not yet know if this Report would be
reviewed and voted on by their Councils governing body. Theres a chance it could be directed to a sub-
committee for an easier passage from carefully selected participants, plus the two votes from the
unelected, unaccountable and totally conflicted members of the Independent Maori Statutory Board.

It is clear that the group wanting control of the Gulf were pushing Forum members to approve
their new governance model on the spot, ahead of the local body elections, as they clearly
believe they have the numbers to get their proposal through and do not want to risk having
their compliant representatives replaced by others who might oppose their plan.

If they succeed in gaining support for their 50:50 Maori sovereignty-style co-governance
proposal, the next step in their march for tribal control of the Hauraki Gulf, will be to seek the
approval of the Government for a change to the Act. With the National Partys history of caving
in to iwi demands, whether they would stand up against this blatant power grab is anyones
guess.

This whole debacle shows only too clearly how important it is that our local body
representatives are prepared to act on principle and stand up for the public interest against
radicals.

By offering themselves for office, candidates are pledging to work in the best interests of their
community. That means opposing anyone threatening the principle of one person one vote.
With an on-going campaign underway to pressure councillors to support the appointment of
un-elected iwi representatives with voting rights onto local authorities, it is important that
potential candidates are well prepared. Standing up to iwi and their supporters is not always
easy, so we suggest the following questions should be asked:

1. If you are elected would you oppose iwi representatives being appointed onto your
Council with voting rights?

2. If you are elected and a proposal to appoint iwi representatives with voting rights onto
your Council wins majority support, would you propose that the final decision should
be made by local electors through a public referendum process?

3. If your Council has already established iwi representatives with voting rights, will you
move that the positions be disestablished so they can be reconsidered by the new
council?

If you send email responses from candidates to us, we will add the details to our
website here as a public service in the run up to the elections.

New Zealand needs strong local government politicians. But be warned as Fionas article
indicates only too clearly, you need to be prepared to stick to your principles and not cave in to
bullying or intimidation.

Most of all you must never forget that you are there to represent the best interests of
your community and those who voted you into office.
Why Are Prices So High In New Zealand? + Homeless In New
Zealand - Thousands Living In Garages And Cars
August 27 2016 | From: MediaWhores / Aljazeera

Dear Leader Knows Best and the Stats (Satanists) dont lie.

Luciferian Zionists are incapable of speaking the truth

The media today are debating why prices are so high in New Zealand. They have
decided to ask the experts. The experts are all pretty sure there is no inflation. The
Government told us so. And the experts all work for the Government or for the banks,
who run the Government.

Related: The British Banking Conspiracy Part 2 - America, Israel and The Federal
Reserve (9/11)

Sounds like a story out of Soviet Russia doesnt it?

Prices in NZ have in fact risen by at least 200% since the 2008 Global financial crisis. 400+ %
on my favorite cheese, and my honey for example. 200% plus on housing, and power bills
some say also. Yet somehow the Government and the corporate media all agree that there
hasnt really been any inflation at all in the past 10 years.

It should be noted that wages and salaries are almost unchanged in that same period in
economics speak, this translates to lower real wages or the amount of purchasing power of
your money / pay.

If prices are 200% or more up, and your wages remain the same you might be experiencing
budgeting problems.

And the bottom 5% will all be living in their cars. Which is precisely the case under this Soviet
like John Key regime who pose as capitalists.
We need to explain why those prices have been rising (money counterfeiting by the banks
essentially) but first, lets consider the other thing putting upwards pressure on our prices
exports.

New Zealand is now feeding upwards of 60,00, 000 people overseas. That is how much food
we produce a massive amount. One of the biggest food producers per capita in the entire
World.

We are a giant farm really, with some traffic jams in the middle. All of the very best food is
exported to the likes of 5 star hotels across Asia and Europe, and thousands of tonnes more to
supermarkets and chain stores all over.

You can of course buy anything you want here but you just have to pay the same price as top
corporate executives are offering for it in Tokyo and London.

If that makes you feel a little queasy, also keep in mind that most of the corporates shipping all
of our food and resources overseas, are paying almost no tax these days. They all have
advanced offshore licensing fees and trusts to launder the profit through to.
Assholes like Graeme Hart (above) are held up for us as some kind of hero when he is in fact
one of the single biggest causes of poverty in our modern day history.

In fact - Kiwis are now not only dealing with 100-200 % lower real wages these days but are
also paying around 65% net taxes on their salaries and wages. That includes 20-30% income
tax, 15% GST, ACC rates, petrol taxes, tobacco taxes, alcohol taxes, local rates, and on and
on. Then thanks to privatisation you have to pay for most Government Services anyway.

It is in fact beyond madness it is looking more and more like some type of Corporate Fourth
Reich. A corporate holocaust being run by our Government in conjunction with their Corporate
partners.

The Corporate Fourth Reich is apparently well underway in New Zealand and under a Prime
Minister who claims to be Jewish oddly enough. Zionists I hear some people refer to them as.
Which looks suspiciously like the word Nazi to me.
Turns out now the experts in the media want to tax sugar as well. The poor can only afford
cheap foods full of sugar these days. So the new tax is clearly designed to make their lives
even harder. Fact is, if they had any interest in keeping people healthy, they would simply
remove taxes off fruit and vegetables.

That is the reality of New Zealand these days a small handful of apparently very well
connected and financed people are doing just great, overseas trips, baches, overseas homes,
etc and everyone else is being slowly killed off via a scientifically designed and deployed
corporate extermination program.

The others have nice large distilled water (h2o) treatment plants for them and their family, and
everyone else is drinking sodium fluoride and chlorine if they are lucky the unlucky rate
payers are actually dying from preventable diseases in their water supplies. This is apparently
the new standard.

Interesting to note that no one has been held responsible for the Havelock North Water
Crisis these leaders are now poisoning everyone and still get to keep their jobs.
Hapless sellout idiot and Mr. Agenda 21 New Zealand, Lawrence Yule expects to be re-elected and he cannot
even tell 5,000 + people why they are sick for weeks from a poisoned water supply

One wonders how bad it is going to get?

One thing is for sure the amount of crap that Kiwis are prepared to put up with has increased
exponentially in just 25 years. Probably at the same rate as the size of their TV screens.

And why do we have inflation on our remaining food ? Mostly due to the money printing /
counterfeiting operations of the foreign banks that money you sign for and they lend you, at
interest?

Yeah, it came out of thin air... a very sophisticated magic trick, that only certain qualified
magicians are apparently allowed to do.

In New Zealand, Lands and Rivers Can Be People (Legally
Speaking)
August 10 2016 | From: TheNewYorkTimes

Can a stretch of land be a person in the eyes of the law? Can a body of
water?

In New Zealand, they can. A former national park has been granted personhood, and a
river system is expected to receive the same soon.

The unusual designations, something like the legal status that corporations possess, came out
of agreements between New Zealands government and Maori groups. The two sides have
argued for years over guardianship of the countrys natural features.

Chris Finlayson, New Zealands attorney general, said the issue was resolved by taking the
Maori mind-set into account. In their worldview, I am the river and the river is me, he
said. Their geographic region is part and parcel of who they are.

From 1954 to 2014, Te Urewera was an 821-square-mile national park on the North Island, but
when the Te Urewera Act took effect, the government gave up formal ownership, and the land
became a legal entity with all the rights, powers, duties and liabilities of a legal person, as the
statute puts it.
"The settlement is a profound alternative to the human presumption of sovereignty over the natural
world, said Pita Sharples, who was the minister of Maori affairs when the law was passed.

It was also undoubtedly legally revolutionary in New Zealand and on a world scale, Jacinta
Ruru of the University of Otago wrote in the Maori Law Review.

Personhood means, among other things, that lawsuits to protect the land can be brought on
behalf of the land itself, with no need to show harm to a particular human.

Next will be the Whanganui River, New Zealands third longest. The local Maori tribe views it
as:

"An indivisible and living whole, comprising the river and all tributaries from the mountains to the sea - and
thats what we are giving effect to through this settlement,

Mr. Finlayson said. It is expected to clear Parliament and become law this year.

Visitors can still enjoy Te Urewera the way they could when it was a park. We want to
welcome people; public access is completely preserved, Mr. Finlayson said. But permits for
activities like hunting are now issued by a board that includes government and Maori
representatives. A similar board will be set up for the river.

Could this legal approach spread beyond New Zealand? Mr. Finlayson said he had talked the
idea over with Canadas new attorney general, Jody Wilson-Raybould.

Does an ancient race of reptilian psychos run the world? Paul Little goes inside the
world of conspiracy theorists. Confused? Feel like everything's falling part? Wondering
why all this weird stuff keeps happening?

David Icke, the eminent conspiracy theorist - or truth seeker, as many who share his interests
prefer to be called - is ready to help you make sense of it all, as part of his Worldwide Wakeup
Tour, which plays at the Logan Campbell Centre in Auckland next Saturday.

He'll explain that despite the way things appear, our planet is run, as the New Statesman
neatly summarised it, by the Archons.

An ancient race of reptilian psychopaths who have ... blinded humans to the real world".

They are "creating a dystopian society" and an "inverted reality is being broadcast from Saturn via the
Moon, which is hollow".
Which possibly raises more questions than it answers.

A conspiracy theory always requires, it should hardly need saying, some organisation. If, for
instance, you believe in chemtrails, that's not a conspiracy theory. If you believe they are lines
of chemicals laid in the sky for enigmatically evil reasons and there is an organised cover-up of
the existence of chemtrails, that is a conspiracy theory.

Their impact can range from the relatively harmless - wondering if you'll bump into not-really-
dead Elvis at the Ohope dairy - to downright dangerous [clearly has not read up on that] , such
as not vaccinating children because you believe it causes autism.

The problem with conspiracy theories is so few have proved to be conspiracy facts. But
enough have to make the concept plausible. Nicky Hager wrote a bestselling book about
some.
There was a Watergate cover-up. US authorities did leave 399 African-Americans with syphilis
untreated without their knowledge to see what would happen.

But why should we pay good money to listen to Icke and his foreign conspiracy theories when
we have perfectly good ones of our own (see below). We're not short of local truth seekers.

Wakeupkiwi.com, contains details of numerous conspiracies, local and imported. Richard


became interested in the area as a boy with an imagination fired by reading about dinosaurs
and aliens. He started his now labyrinthine site as a repository for documentaries and links he
thought like-minded thinkers might be interested in.

But because of the sheer volume of things that are transpiring it's turned into something it was never
meant to be," he says. "I get lost in it myself sometimes."

But he's no conspiracy theorist. That term, he says, was coined by the CIA to describe people
who believed there was more to the Kennedy assassination than met the eye and "to make
people sound like they were kooks before they opened their mouths".
Associate Professor Marc Wilson of Victoria University's School of Psychology notes that truth-
seeking sounds active. Conspiracy theorist "could describe sitting in your mother's basement
reading through dodgy websites for something nebulous like a conspiracy".

Wilson surveyed 6000 New Zealanders in 2008 and found people mentally put "conspiracy
theorist" alongside "mental patient". "This is due in no small part to the centrality of paranoia as
part of the stereotype of the conspiracy theorist," says Wilson.

There's no such thing as a typical truth seeker, says Wakeupkiwi:

The only common denominator is that they are people who go, 'Why should we just believe everything we
are told?'."

But, adds Wilson, people are also more likely to endorse conspiracy theories if they feel
anomie, hostility, paranoia, have less formal education, lower income, poorer health, distrust of
authority and less happiness.
Radio host Vinny Eastwood is happy to be called a conspiracy theorist.

Everything is the opposite of what you think it is to a large degree," says Eastwood. "If you think it's a
conspiracy theory it's a fact. If you think it's a fact it's made-up nonsense."

Since 2010, Eastwood, who sounds delighted to have been born in conspiracy-significant
1984, has been the Auckland-based host of an eponymous radio show that live-streams here
and in the US on American Freedom Radio for two hours twice a week.

Topics in the archive include: "Elites in Fear of White Dragon Society & Gold
Standard" and "Psychopaths Infest Every Major Institution! Can We Get Them Out?"
He got into the area in 2004, when introduced to "the comedy of Bill Hicks. And the usage of
cannabis. And to conspiracy theories - the first thing I watched was Fahrenheit 9/11", Michael
Moore's Bush presidency documentary.

But it was a 300-hour community service sentence for a minor cannabis charge that destroyed
his faith in government and authorities and set him on a new course. Eastwood doesn't think
issues here are very different from those elsewhere, which is why his show goes down well in
the US, where similar challenges are being faced.

"For example, right now there's a big fluoride thing going on where local district councils will have the ability
to decide whether we have fluoride put in our water taken out of their hands and put in the hands of the
DHBs, which are more or less in the pocket of the Ministry of Health, which are more or less in the pocket
of the big pharmaceutical industry, which is more or less in the pocket of the phosphate fertiliser industry
which makes the fluoride."

A scarily small number of younger people think the Rainbow Warrior was bombed by agents of
a foreign power.

Wakeupkiwi however, believes we are special because our size makes us an ideal testing
ground, for example, with Eftpos. "That's why we had it 20 years before it was rolled out in the
States."

Jonathan Eisen, editor of Uncensored, which proclaims itself "the best-selling English-
language 'alternative' news magazine in the Southern Hemisphere", says New Zealand is like
most other countries because we are built the same.
"I discovered a few years ago that New Zealand was a corporation much the same as the US is,"
Eisen.

"If you go on the Securities and Exchange Commission website you can find the corporation is owned by
another entity - Her Majesty the Queen in right of New Zealand."

The mainstream media, says Eisen, do their bit by self-censoring. When he worked with a
flagship TV current affairs series and presented it with research showing the Aids virus was
man-made, the journalist he was working with told him: "We can't touch that."

Eisen is 73 and has been seeking the truth from an early age.

"When I was a boy my father was the first one to connect smoking and heart disease and was censored
essentially by the Journal of the American Medical Association. And he found out after he published in the
Canadian Medical Journal that the AMA journal was financed in large part by the American Tobacco
Institute."

Wilson thinks we have a fairly boring conspiracy landscape. Forty per cent have endorsed the
All Black poisoning [at the 1995 World Cup], 45 per cent say New Zealand is manipulated by
Big Business, and a scarily small number - about 60 per cent - of younger people think the
Rainbow Warrior was bombed by agents of a foreign power.
He found rightwingers think there is a political conspiracy to advantage Maori and left wingers
think there is one to disadvantage them. As for Icke, the likes of Montgomerie and Eisen are
circumspect when it comes to endorsing his claims the Queen is a reptilian shape-shifter,
among other things.

But, says Eisen

Rather than disparage him I celebrate that he can open up new avenues for discussion that are
sometimes way outside the dominant paradigm and our comfort zone, my own included, but that doesn't
mean I don't take him seriously.

So much of his work, especially with regard to the power of the so-called elites, has borne fruit."

Writing in The Guardian, New York-based psychologist and science writer Rob Bretherton says
Icke's view of things:

As wild as it sounds, is kind of a hopeful message in that it is saying: 'Yes, there is a lot of stuff wrong with
the world but we can put our finger on who's responsible and what's responsible for it and then we can do
something about it'."
Frank (not his real name), a 33-year-old IT worker, whose conspiracy consciousness was
raised by the documentary 9/11: In Plane Sight, worries that's not good enough:

There's a subset of people within the truth-seeking community that will grab hold of anything with both
hands," says Frank.

"They play into the hands of the elite. When those wacky theories get momentum it makes it easy to
discredit the rest."

Nevertheless, says Montgomerie;

The cat's out of the bag. A lot of people have put their lives on the line to expose the bigger picture. There
is a big push for disclosure of everything. It's going to be messy for a while, but it's inevitable."

As well as the idea conspiracy theories offer hope things will be remedied, they also provide
comfort by absolving us from feeling we should be in control. How can we be if we don't know
what forces are secretly controlling that world?
But for some it's all too hard. Frank has stopped thinking about it so much.

If you follow the money far enough you'll come to the people pulling the strings. And if you think about that
too much and the decisions those people make and the world they've created. I got to a point where I was
starting to get depressed thinking about this."

"Perhaps ignorance is bliss."

Welfare Cull 'Pushing Vulnerable Off The Books'


July 30 2016 | From: NewZealandHerald

A welfare advocacy group is warning that thousands of Kiwis will suffer


under newly implemented changes to the beneficiary system.
Auckland Action Against Poverty said the latest round of reforms, which require all
sickness beneficiaries, sole parents and widows with no children under 14 to look for
fulltime employment like other job seekers, would have a brutal impact on the wellbeing
of hundreds of thousands of children and adults who are dependent on the state for
survival.

Related: PM's homeless remarks untrue - Sallies

The reforms, which came into force on July 15, represent the biggest upheaval in the welfare
state since the Social Security Act was passed by the first Labour Government in 1938.

Other new obligations include drug-testing for jobseekers in relevant industries.

Auckland Action Against Poverty spokeswoman Sarah Thompson said the changes were
aimed at decreasing the number of beneficiaries in New Zealand, rather than job creation.

All New Zealanders who end up on welfare will have more hoops to jump through or face punitive
measures as the Government attempts to push them into low-paid insecure work - no matter what the
downstream cost.

This is not about getting people into decent work [and] it's not about job creation. It's about cutting costs by
pushing vulnerable people off the books,'' she said.

The group will hold information stalls outside three Work and Income offices in Auckland today.

Ms Thompson said there had been an increase in the number of beneficiaries who had been
"sanctioned'' for slip-ups in the last two months.
Some had also had their benefits reduced due to Work and Income errors.

What are the changes?

The reforms represent the biggest upheaval in the welfare state since the Social Security Act
was passed by the first Labour Government in 1938.

All sickness beneficiaries, and sole parents and widows with no children under 14, are now
subject to the same requirement to look for fulltime work as other jobless people, although
sickness may be accepted as a valid reason to postpone work temporarily.

Other new obligations include drug-testing for jobseekers in relevant industries, which is
expected to trigger benefit cuts for up to 5800 people, and a requirement for beneficiaries to
clear outstanding arrest warrants.

About 8000 beneficiaries have arrest warrants outstanding for issues such as unpaid fines.
Unless they clear them within 38 days, their benefits will be halved if they have children, or
stopped completely if they don't, in what is likely to be the biggest single purge of the benefit
rolls since the system was created.

Papakura case study

The co-ordinator of the Pikorua Community House in a low-income part of Papakura, Michelle
Neho, said many people with outstanding warrants would go back to drug-dealing rather than
pay their fines.

A Herald investigation into how the changes will affect people's lives in Papakura, as a case
study of a high-welfare area, has found widespread fear of the reforms even among those who
are supposed to be exempted from the work-search requirements.
A lot of people are scared about the warrants to arrest," Ms Neho said. "There's a lot of people that have
thousands of dollars of fines outstanding." Some would rather come off the benefit than pay all their fines.

The huge reorientation of welfare shifts the focus from the short-term unemployed, which
largely left other beneficiaries alone, to a new "investment approach" aimed at finding work for
those who are likely to stay on benefits the longest and cost taxpayers the most - mainly the
sick, disabled and sole parents.

Work and Income chief Debbie Power said 85,000 people - mainly the sick, long-term
unemployed, and sole parents and widows with no children under 14 - would move today into
intensive "work-focused case management" with 760 personal case managers to help them
find jobs and overcome barriers such as transport and childcare costs, addictions, debts and
workplace attitudes to mental illness and other conditions.

A further 1000 sole parents and 1000 people with mental health problems will be handed over
to contractors who will be paid from $2250 to $16,500 for each person they place in
employment for at least a year.

From earlier in the month: Sallies' disagreement over homeless action

After the Prime Minister told reporters that people living in cars were refusing help, a rift
has opened up between the government and the Salvation Army.

Studies Aotearoa / New Zealand Inc. - Te Tuapapa Rongomau o
Aotearoa.The Peace Foundation is a not for profit organisation working to
build peaceful relationships among people of all ages and cultures, from
personal to global through education, research and action.

The director of Platoon, Wallstreet and JFK was at Comic-Con 2016 in San Diego to
discuss his new movie Snowden. Considering the topic of the movie, the panel were
discussing the NSA, online privacy and government surveillance.

Are you able to make a pledge to our initiative?

And could you let your network know about this too? Every small bit helps, and adding your
name to that of Louisa Wall MP, Mayor Celia Wade Brown and Jeanette Fitzsimons helps to
encourage others to follow your lead.

The work we do is the kind of educational training that a progressive Government should
finance given it contributes to peaceful communities, whanau and schools, something that
reaches into the very soul of Aotearoa New Zealand, does it not?

What else can we do to realise our target and help reduce crime, violence and aggression
around our country?

With 24 days to go we have raised just over $24,000 with pledges made just recently. We won't
get a cent of it if we don't raise $150,000 by14 August.

Our desirable goal is to raise $300,000 so that we can get peer mediation into a further 160
schools around the country and develop a project to get it to every single school, realising the
peaceful Aotearoa NZ that drives you and me and so many others.
Latest update - With 23 days to go, 50 generous donors have pledged $24,399.50 And we
have just received some FANTASTIC news!!! If we can raise further pledges of $125,603.50, a
private donor has offered to TOP THIS UP WITH A PLEDGE OF $150,030 to reach our big
goal of $300,033!

Which means we can roll out our peer mediation trainings to a further 160 schools AND
develop a project with partners to reach every single school in New Zealand.

Please continue to share this initiative to your network, and ask your friends, your neighbours,
the fellow passenger in the bus, or next to you in an Auckland traffic jam (or wherever you are
in New Zealand or the world) to make a pledge for peace!

Who Owns New Zealand's Media?


July 16 2016 | From: JMAD New Zealand Media Ownership Report / Throng / MadisonLevy /
Various

The JMAD 2015 New Zealand Media Ownership Report observes that New
Zealand media companies are now owned by a small number of private
funds and investment banks. In the case of MediaWorks, financial
ownership has intensified its profit imperatives, and led to the demolition of
its news and currents affairs programmes.
In this context, it is encouraging that independent news organisations such as the
National Business Review (NBR), BusinessDesk and Scoop, have continued to operate
in the market.

Related: Fraudcast News: You Will Believe What the Media Tells You To

In 2015, New Zealand media companies were implementing digital first strategies, and
integrating newsrooms across the print and online platforms. Unfortunately, this didnt put
journalists first, and newsroom layoffs continued.

The revenue structures of media companies continued to encounter difficulties, and new forms
of partnership and collaboration emerged.

For example, Fairfax partnered with Sky TV, The Huffington Post and The New York Times;
and APN with News Corp and The Washington Post in content delivery.
Additionally, NZME, TVNZ, MediaWorks and Fairfax joined forces in advertising against
companies such as Facebook and Google.

In 2015, Rupert Murdoch returned to the New Zealand media market by acquiring a 15 per
cent stake in APN, publisher of The New Zealand Herald. In contrast, mining billionaire Gina
Rinehart sold all of her Fairfax shares. Consequently, the investment bank Morgan Stanley
became the companys largest shareholder.

Yet again MediaWorks became owned by one financial institution. In 2013 it went into
receivership under its private equity owner Ironbridge Capital. In 2015, American hedge fund
Oaktree Capital emerged as the biggest MediaWorks owner.

New Zealand Media Ownership and Market Structure

From 2010 to 2015, the market structure of New Zealand media has not changed significantly.
However, television broadcasting has become increasingly competitive with the arrival of on-
demand and video streaming services.
During the past five years, the newspaper publishing, radioand televisionmarkets have been
dominatedby the same major players: APN/NZME, Fairfax Media, MediaWorks, Sky TV, TVNZ,
Radio New Zealand (RNZ), and Maori TV.

Additionally, independent news organisations such as Scoop, Allied Press, the National
Business Review and BusinessDesk, maintained operations in an increasingly competitive
media environment.

New Zealand Media and Entertainment (NZME) is owned by APN News and Media, an
Australian media corporation headquartered in Sydney. APN is a publicly listed company
owned by its shareholders, which operates both in Australia and New Zealand.

Similarly, Fairfax Media is headquartered in Sydney, and is publicly listed and owned by its
shareholders. Sky TV (NZ) operates in New Zealand, and is also a public company owned by
shareholders. Bauer Media, a privately owned, global media conglomerate, is headquartered in
Germany.

It entered the New Zealand publishing market in 2013 by purchasing APNs magazine staples
such as The Listener, New Zealand Womans Weekly, Simply You and Simply You Living.
MediaWorks is privately owned, ow by American hedge fund Oaktree Capital. New Zealand
has three Crown owned companies: Television New Zealand (TVNZ), Radio New Zealand
(RNZ) and Maori Television. TVNZ is owned by the state, and it is commercially funded with no
public service obligation.

Approximately 95 percent of its operations are funded by advertising, and its primary mandate
is to pay dividends to the New Zealand government. RNZ is the only public service broadcaster
in New Zealand. Its aim is:

To provide reliable, independent and freely accessible news and information, and to give expression to
New Zealands national identity and diversity

- Treasury, 2014

Treasury states that RNZ is an independent Crown entity with public funding, and has a
mandate to operate in the broad public interest in accordance with the RNZ Charter.

Maori Television, also funded by the government, is specifically required to revitalise the Maori
language. According to Maori TV, its general objective is to be:

An independent Maori television service that is relevant, effective and widely accessible

New Zealand Media: Concentration of Ownership

The week commencing 9th May 2016 is likely to be remembered by journalists in New Zealand
for a very long time. In another twist in the complex, uncertain and volatile media landscape
the two Australian media titans, Fairfax Media and APN announced they were engaged in
discussions with a view to merging their New Zealand media assets.

These assets are Fairfax NZ and NZME, a merger of which would result in New Zealand being
left with one newspaper group holding an effective monopoly over the newspapers in the
large cities, with the Otago Daily Times as the lone independent newspaper.

Loss of advertisng revenue as a result of both digital convergence and multi-platform media
configurations is adversely impacting the traditional mass media operating model across the
developed world.

However, these commercial realities and the frequent media ownership concentration
that results have very serious potential implications for the quality of journalism.

Media ownership in New Zealand has been gradually concentrating over the past years, first
moving to corporate ownership and then more latterly to financial ownership.

Nonetheless, given the relatively light media regulation by government, if this move to merger
is successful the public will inevitably have less choice and the role of the fourth estate will be
at risk of being weakened, at the very time when the worlds of politics and business
appear to becoming less and less tranparent.

Over the Last Few Weeks [November 2015] Throng has Presented Adhoc Analysis of
Ratings on the Free-to-Air Channels.

Related: Corporate Media Really Is Dying: Check Out these New Statistics

This has shown a staggering 12 point decline in viewing audiences across the combined TV2 and TV3
channels.
So where has that audience gone?

Has it migrated to other Freeview channels such as Maori Television, ChoiceTV and the
timeshifted channels (TVOne+1,TV2+1 and TV3+1)?

Should advertisers be devoting more analysis to the audience and reach of these other channels?

Or has the audience shifted to the, as Throng would have you believe, anachronistic Sky?

This is highly important not just to stimulate discussion in television media in New Zealand but also highly
important to the advertising community that essentially funds these channels. A one point movement in
audience share in the $614million spent on television advertising in 2014 means $6.14m impact on
profitability and the ability to acquire content in subsequent years.

Viewers have to go somewhere

Audience share, by its very nature, sums to 100%. So a double digit shift in audience share has to go
somewhere. At this time the data for other channels (and the plus ones) havent been presented and this
author doesnt have access to the audience data that the administrators enjoy.

However it would be ironic to think that the audience has migrated to watching more hours of television on
the platform that the administrators go to great lengths to harangue and ridicule.

Although the demographic is incorrect publically available data shows that over the 2010-2014 Sky TV and
Prime have enjoyed a 4% lift in audience share. Something that must increase the bitterness of Throng. It
still begs the question where has 8 percentage points or $50 million worth of advertising share gone?

Print Newspapers and Online News Outlets

In 2015, NZME and Fairfax maintained their duopoly in New Zealands print newspaper
market. The three leading newspapers, including The New Zealand Herald(NZME), The
Dominion Post (Fairfax), and The Press (Fairfax), saw declines in their circulation numbers.

Media

In June 2015, the circulation of The New Zealand Herald was 139,209, down 4.7 per cent from
the previous year; the circulation of The Dominion Post was 64,851(-9.6%) and the circulation
of The Press61,573(-7.8%).

However, The Dominion Post has increased its readership. According to Roy Morgan
readership results, in 2015 The Dominion Posts Monday to Saturday readership increased 3.8
per cent from the previous year to 274,000 readers, a gain of 10,000 readers per average
issue.

The readership of The New Zealand Herald was 589,000, down 3.3 per cent from 2014, but the
paper remained the countrys most-read daily newspaper. The leading Sunday papers lost
readers: the Sunday Star Times had 415,000 readers, down 1.4 per cent. However, the Herald
on Sunday lost 11 percent of its readers having readership of 290,000 in the 12 months to June
2015.

In April 2015, The New Zealand Heralds editor-in-chief Tim Murphy announced that he was
stepping down.

In a media statement Jane Hastings, chief executive of NZME said: Tim has guided The New
Zealand Herald through some of the most dynamic years in the papers history including
changing format from broadsheet to compact in 2012"

Murphy was appointed as editor-in-chief in 2001 at the age of 37, and he was the youngest
person to edit the paper.
In 2015, New Zealands online news - in terms of unique audience - was dominated by Fairfax.
Its online site stuff.co.nz became the most popular New Zealand based website as it overtook
Trade Me as the one most visited.

In April 2015, Fairfax appointed the former nzhreald.co.nz editor Jeremy Rees as an editor for
its national community titles in New Zealand.
Sinead Boucher, Fairfax Medias executive editor, said that his role wasto develop our strategy
around communities - in print as well as in digital as well lead innovation as Fairfax sought to
grow this very important and strong part of business".

In May 2015, stuff.co.nz had aunique audience of over 1.8 million. Boucher commented that in
New Zealand:

The digital world is now defined by Google for search, Facebook for social, and Stuff for content,
that usage is the ultimate engagement metric.

In 2014 nzherald.co.nz had a unique audience of 1.2 million, and according to NZME, in 2015
The New Zealand Herald had a monthly digital audience of 1,383,000, and a total brand
audience of 1,821,000".

In order to attract an even greater audience, and in preparation for digital subscriptions, The
New Zealand Herald launched a new data-journalism website entitled Insights in November
2015. The paper noted that thelaunch was a further demonstration of its commitment to in-
depth journalism and new forms of storytelling".

NZME group revenue director Laura Maxwell said in a press release, that the site
was generating interest from advertising agencies which opens up opportunities for revenue
generation. In her view, by using data visualising tools, the new site creates new immersive
and creative opportunities for advertisers to align with these engaged audiences".

Another Local Paywall Goes Up, The New Zealand Herald Yet to Follow

In 2015, New Zealand media companies were driving newsroom and other changes to
increase their digital and advertising income. Their need to find new revenue sources is clear,
and APN illustrates the point. As mentioned earlier,its 2015 half-year profit shrank 67 per cent
from the previous year. In this context,it is not surprising that NZME is contemplating paywalls.

In August, the company said thatit would introduce digital registrations for the nzherald.co.nz
website by the end of year.

This move precedes introduction of digital subscriptions, or a paywall. Earlier in 2015 the
company stated its intention to monetise online news with memberships, digital subscriptions,
and pay as you click articles.

In May APN announced paywalls for its regional newspapers in Australia, and in August 2015
the Toowoomba Chronicle introduced charges for its online news.

In New Zealand, the National Business Review has digital subscriptions, and local newspapers
Whakatane Beacon and The Ashburton Guardian have also introduced paywalls.

In October another local newspaper, independently owned The Gisborne Herald, announced
that it would launch charges for its online content. The paper stated that some important
content on the site will be outside the paywall. Most critically, in a civil defence emergency all
news will be freely accessible.

The papers digital services costabout two-thirds the price of a newspaper subscription - $1 for
one day of viewing through to $200 for a 12-month subscription. Fairfax introduced a paywall
for the Australian Financial Review in 2011, and for its general newspapers The Age and The
Sydney Morning Herald in 2013.

Its paywall revenue has gradually increased from AUD$4.8 million in 2013 to AUD$32.7 million
in 2015. At the same time its income from digital classified advertising has increased from
AUD$109 million to AUD$161.5 million.
Independents

In 2015, New Zealands independent media outlets included the National Business Review, a
privately owned financial news outlet; privately owned newspaper publisher Allied Press;
Scoop, which became a trust owned not-for-profit media outlet, and BusinessDesk, a privately
owned independent news provider focusing on business and financial news.

In September 2015, Scoop, the 16-year old online news publisher, became a non-profit media
outlet committed to public interest journalism. The publishing company was embedded in an
independent charitable trust entitled Scoop Foundation for Public Interest Journalism.

The trust owns the publishing arm of Scoop, called The New Scoop Publishing Company.
Before this change, the companys shareholders included Margaret Thompson (Mother of
Scoops editor and publisher Alastair Thompson), Imarda chief executive Selwyn Pellett, who
held 20 per cent of the shares, and journalists Gordon Campbell, Russell Brown and Pattrick
Smellie.

However, in December 2014, Margaret Thompson took full control in the company. According
to the National Business Review, the ownership changes meant that several shareholders are
short of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Bloggers

The 2013 JMAD New Zealand media ownership report found that the blogosphere was thriving
in New Zealand.

As was then stated, the mainstream media was becoming increasingly commercially
focused,and therefore there was a gap in public interest reporting, which bloggers are now
trying to fill.
However, the 2014 JMAD report observed after the revelations in Nicky Hagers book Dirty
Politics, that blogs are not necessarily a counterweight to commercial media outlets. The
report stated that there is increasing evidence of unethical alliances among bloggers,
politicians, PR companies and legacy media.

In 2015, bloggers kept breaking news stories ahead of the mainstream media. In April, Martyn
Bradburys The Daily Blog broke a story in which an anonymous waitress revealed that Prime
Minister John Key kept pulling her hair against her wishes whenvisiting an Auckland caf.

After The Daily Blog published an anonymous blog written by the waitress, The New Zealand
Herald named her in its story against her wishes. However, Shayne Currie, editor of The New
Zealand Herald, said that after the papers gossip columnist Rachel Glucina interviewed the
waitress and the caf owners, no one was in any doubt that the article, quotes and
photograph would be appearing in the Herald".

After the scandal broke, Prime Minister apologised to the waitress for any offence
caused. The story was covered extensively in New Zealand media and abroad by news
outlets such as the BBC, the Washington Post, CNN, The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian,
The Japan Time sand The Hindu.

New Zealand Media Ownership: Events and Patterns

The ownership structures of leading New Zealand media corporations have changed
substantially in the past five years.

None of the commercial media companies are New Zealand owned, and APN is the only one
with a media corporation as a substantial shareholder.

In all four commercially operated media companies ownership has concentrated in


hands of financial institutions: private equity firms, investment banks, banks and
managed funds.

In 2015, APNs ownership changed substantially when long-term shareholder, the Irish
Independent News and Media (INM), sold its shares along with telecom billionaire Denis
OBrien (he had substantial holdings in both INM and APN). In March, INM and OBriens
investment company Baycliffe Limited sold all their APN shares.

Before the sale, INM owned 18.6 per cent of APNs shares, and Baycliffe 12.2 per cent.
Following the sale, Rupert Murdochs News Corp purchased a 14.99 per cent of APN to
become thesecond largest shareholder.
APNs Chairman Peter Cosgrove described this ownership change as a defining moment for
APN that also reflects a new era. News Corp noted that its interest was due to APNs high
quality portfolio of Australian and New Zealand radio and outdoor media assets and small
regional print interests.

Following the transaction, in June 2015, APNs chief executive officer Michael Miller resigned
from APN to become executive chairman of News Corp Australasia. He was followed by Ciaran
Davis, who was previously chief executive officer of the Australian Radio Network (ARN)
owned by APN.

...

In June 2013 MediaWorks was put into receivership, and consequently sold to a new holding
company MediaWorks Holdings Limited; a syndicate of banks, hedge funds and private equity
companies.

In April 2015, MediaWorks announced that American privately owned hedge fund Oaktree
Capital owned 77.8 per cent of the companys shares after purchasing them from Royal Bank
of Scotland and Westpac.

Mark Weldon, MediaWorks chief executive officer commented that Oaktree is an experienced,
long-terminvestor into media businesses, referring to the companys involvement in Australian
Nine Entertainment.
According to media reports, Oaktree Capital has increased its stake in MediaWorks to 100 per
cent, but this hasnt been officially confirmed.

In October, John Drinnan wrote that in June, Oaktree took full ownership of MediaWorks,
which has suffered low morale and ratings mishaps at its TV operations. He also noted that
after Weldon joined MediaWorks in 2014 as a chief executive officer, he had a rollercoaster
ride with disappointing results from TV amid a strategic shift that downgraded news and current
affairs and made more use of reality formats.

Related: The Dumbing Down Of Mainstream Media & The Agendas Driving It

Earlier in April, Nick Grant commented that MediaWorks CEO makes ruthless decisions on a
financial basis. Most other people will take into account various personalities and issues and
stakeholders, but Mr Weldon only has one stakeholder money.

Conclusions

During the past five years, New Zealand media has undergone some substantial ownership
changes. The following table lists some of the major developments in the New Zealand media
market from 2011 to 2015.

In general, it can be observed that the financial ownership of APN, Fairfax Media and Sky TV
has increased, and their future is determined by management funds and investment banks
which are the largest shareholders in these companies.

In 2015, 20 per cent of Sky TVs shares were owned by three financial institutions; 32 per cent
of APNs shares were in hands of four funds; 44.7 per cent of Fairfaxs shares were owned by
five financial institutions, and MediaWorks was owned by one hedge fund.

At the time of writing, it is clear that the New Zealand media sector has some major structural
changes ahead. APN has indicated that it may still float NZME as a separate company on the
New Zealand stock market. At the time of writing MediaWorkss future seemed uncertain, and
the companys management has indicated that it was seeking to sell the company, or to list it
onthe local stock market.

During 2015 it became evident that media corporations need to pursue new partnerships and
alliances while they are trying to recapture audiences, and revenues. In this context it is not
surprising that old enemies have started to find new ways to co-operate.

Competition in the New Zealand broadcasting market has become fiercer, and new entrants to
the market have emerged. In 2015, American companies Netflix and Yahoo TV introduced their
video streaming services in New Zealand to compete with existing broadcasters and services.

This report also notes examples of technological innovation among New Zealand media
companies.

The National Business Review launched radio service; RNZ experimented with podcasts and
video content; NZME introduced a new data-journalism site, and Scoop used crowd funding to
help its transformation to a non-profit news organisation. Additionally some interesting new
content providers, such as The Spinoff, emerged.

Comment: The consolidation of New Zealand media is no different in real terms than
that which has been happening overseas. Such centralisation is not just about fiscal
considerations, but power. We see consolidation happening in all industries and
countries. It is far easier for those at the top to continue running the show, shaping the
narrative and indeed in the case of the media - controlling the news and flow of
information - when there are less strings to pull.

Elation As Ashburton Council Backs Out Of Controversial Water
Bottling Deal
July 14 2016 | From: Stuff

The ditching of a deal to set up a water bottling plant in Canterbury has


been hailed "a win for the Ashburton community.

The Ashburton District Council has backed out of negotiations with NZ Pure Blue to sell
Lot 9 of its business estate, which came with resource consent to extract billions of
litres of water from aquifers beneath the town.

Related: For Sale: 40 Billion Litres Of Canterbury's Purest Water

The council had been under public pressure to drop the sale. A petition with 40,000 signatures
opposing the deal was recently presented to the council.

The Bung the Bore group opposing the sale had threatened legal action, and was pursuing a
judicial review of the resource consent. It is understood the decision to back out of negotiations
was made at a public-excluded council meeting last week. Councillors had been sworn to
secrecy until the council released the news on Monday.

Mayor Angus McKay said the potential purchaser failed to tell the council "how they intended
to run a water bottling plant from the site".

In particular, we wanted confirmation that the plant would be using bottles not water bladders ... [this]
given us enough cause for concern to cancel the Sale and Purchase Agreement," he said.
Jen Branje of Bung the Bore said the group was "elated" at the news.

This decision is a testament to what can be achieved when communities band together to instigate
change. We hope that the outcome of our efforts will encourage others to hold their councils to account."

Green Party water spokesperson Catherine Delahunty called the decision "a win for the Ashburton
community.

Everything about this backroom deal was flawed from the lack of consultation to the secrecy around who
was to buy the land," she said.

"We're glad that the council has finally seen the light and have backed down from this ridiculous deal. If
they have to sell public land, which is always debatable, it could at least be for something that is endorsed
by and benefits the whole community, not just those who stand to make a quick buck.

Those who profit from the use of water, like those who bottle and sell it as a premium product, should pay
for the privilege."

The consent, granted by Environment Canterbury (ECan) in 2011, allowed extraction of 1.4
billion litres of pure, artesian water a year until 2046. It amounted to 40 billion litres of water in
total. All water taken would have been replaced with water from a nearby stockwater race.

Some residents of drought-prone Mid Canterbury - who at times can't hose their gardens due
to water restrictions - said the water was desperately needed locally.

NZ Pure Blue had offered to pay for the relocation of Ashburton's rail siding from the township
to a site next to its proposed water bottling plant. The sale was extended to September 30 so it
could negotiate with KiwiRail.

NZ Pure Blue has two New Zealand directors, John Paynter and Roydon Hartnett, but its
ownership is concealed through a trust. Both men refused to speak to Stuff but told a local
newspaper the water bottling plant could create around 100 jobs.

The council has also been criticised for a lack of transparency. Some councillors were kept in
the dark about details of the sale, which McKay led.

A previous attempt to sell the site to a Chinese buyer fell through.

McKay said the council was still considering the feedback from Ngi Tahu and Arowhenua
Rnanga, the online petition and the community deputation from two lobby groups presented
to council last month.

A report on community feedback to the proposed sale would be presented at the council's July
meeting. Branje said the group was thankful for the support from people around New Zealand.

New Zealand Considers Taxing Sugar While New Zealand


Government Invests $240m In Coca Cola And Fast Food Chains
July 10 2016 | From: Yahoo

New figures reveal the New Zealand Superannuation Fund and ACC have
invested millions of dollars of taxpayers' money into several global fast
food and soft drink companies.

Releasing details of the large-scale government investments on Wednesday, RNZ News


reported that, as of May 31, the New Zealand Superannuation Fund and ACC had $110
million invested in The Coca-Cola Company and its global subsidiaries.

Related:

They also invested $70m in the The Coca-Cola Company's main rival, Pepsico.

Additionally, $38m was invested into McDonalds in America and Japan, and $17m into
Domino's Pizza in Britain and Australia.

In New Zealand, the Super Fund has $5m invested in Restaurant Brands, which owns
restaurant chains KFC, Pizza Hut, Carl's Junior and Starbucks.
Responding to the newly released figures, Labour Party MP Jenny Salesa reiterated the
widespread impact obesity is having on the country.

"Oh c'mon why is ACC & the Superfund here investing Millions in soft drinks companies when NZ has the
3rd highest obesity rate in the OECD?," she said on Twitter.

Dental Association spokesperson Rob Beaglehole told RNZ News he was shocked to learn of
the "inappropriate" investments.

"New Zealand is the third fattest country and has the third highest consumption of sugar in the OECD, after
Mexico and the United States. The number one source of sugar for those aged 30 and under comes from
sugary drinks," he said.

A Super Fund spokesperson told RNZ News that while it recognised nutrition was a public
health issue there are no plans to introduce any divestment strategies.

"We have engaged with a number of companies on this matter and will continue to do so. We are not
aware of any mainstream funds which are excluding companies on these issues," the spokesperson said.

The Ministry of Health currently injects $60m each year into obesity prevention programmes.

Global Interest In New Zealand Town With Too Many Jobs


July 3 2016 | From: ChannelNewsAsia

A tiny New Zealand town that offered property for bargain prices in a bid to
attract more people has been swamped with more than 5,000 enquiries
from around the world, the local mayor said Friday.

Clutha District Mayor Bryan Cadogan said the South Island township of Kaitangata had
more jobs than people, with a population of 800 but up to 1,000 vacancies, mostly in the
thriving agricultural sector.

To boost its population, the town has been offering house-and-land packages for NZ$230,000
(US$164,000) - a good deal considering the national average is NZ$577,000, rising to
NZ$955,000 in Auckland.

Cadogan said the response had been overwhelming, with global interest from people enquiring
about moving to the town, which is set in a lush valley about an hour's drive from Dunedin.

"We've been smashed," he told TV3. "I think my PA's going to throttle me... there's over 5,000 messages
on my phone, the council website's full. It's just phenomenal."
The town has a coal mine, sawmills and processing factories for the dairy industry.

"We've got so many jobs in the district, jobs aren't a problem," Cadogan said.

"We've got the jobs, we've got the affordable housing, we've got the beautiful lifestyle. We're pretty lucky."

He said the town had been searching for ways to attract new people for years.

"We did speed dating and a jobs fair last year," he said, admitting the latest promotion had
overshadowed them all.

Cadogan said the initial offering of eight land and house packages looked set to be snapped
up and the town "will just keep finding them" if interest warrants it.

"It's a neat wee town with some really positive people and I think it's a hoot of a story," he said.

The Historical & Current Situations In Aotearoa New Zealand


June 30 2016 [Updated July 10 2016] | From: PeterCapper (Te Atiawa / Taranaki Tuturu / Tainui
/ Te Rarawa)

After 200 years of colonization many Pakeha and Maori feel they have very
little knowledge of pre-colonial Aotearoa. Since the Treaty Of Waitangi
signing on February 4, 1840 by over 200 mainly northern and central north
island Sub-Tribal Chiefs.
The signing of the Treaty Of Waitangi led to a huge influx of foreign immigrants mainly
from England hoping to start a new life away from abject poverty in their Motherland
and with the penal colonies of Australia only 'across the ditch', many escaped POME's
(Prisoners Of Mother England) also fled to Aotearoa / New Zealand for refuge and trade
opportunities.

A major factor that led to the Treaty of Waitangi were the number of criminals escaping to
Aotearoa New Zealand from New South Wales, Australia. The northern Chiefs wanted Queen
Victoria to send a constabulary or some form of governance and control for the multitudes of
drunken sailors plying alcohol, and the halfbreed children running everywhere. This concern
came mainly from Chiefs around Russell, "The Hell Hole Of The Pacific".

Governor Hobson was sent here from NSW with the infamous treaty, where the treaty was for
the Crown to create the New Zealand Government to then govern over their subjects and to
govern Maori - with the 1835 Declaration of Independence and Treaty of Waitangi giving us
Tino Rangatiratanga (self determination / governance) whereby the Maori maintain their
sovereignty.

So Maori Sovereignty is self determination in maintaining all traditional and customary


rights for all and allowing Pakeha to govern themselves. Moving forward, the Crown /
New Zealand Parliament and Maori would develop 'Best Practices and Relationships'
over time as a united country with two cultures that would respect each others
differences so that we could assimilate together into a unique, well adjusted nation.

Whew, if only huh!

With an estimated population at that point in 1840; of 300,000 Maori and 1,200-1,500 colonial
settlers, two thirds being English, Irish and Scottish and the rest a mix of mostly mainland
Europeans such as French, German, Dutch, Dalmatian, Portuguese, a few Americans and
quite a large contingent of Chinese (to build the railroads and search for gold in the South
Island). It is today totally inconceivable that Maori ceded their sovereignty and governance of
their GOD-given ancestral lands - to a handful of greedy Rothschild-owned East India
Company agents, Spencer and Russell, land agents who founded The Bank Of New Zealand.
Pakeha New Zealanders know even less, if anything at all, about the far more important
document signed 5 years earlier on October 28, 1835 between (again) northern and central
Hapu / Iwi

The 1835 Maori Declaration Of Independence, represented by The Confederated Chiefs Of


The United Tribes Of Aotearoa, a sitting Parliament of Chieftain descendents of 1835 and
1840, and there are many today claiming this status that has basically turned the Confederated
Chiefs into factions all vying for limited positions within the Confederation.

Add to this the fact that many Maori (estimated at 90%) also know very little if anything of the
same founding document (The 1835 Maori Declaration Of Independence), it is no wonder
many feel confused, uncertain and ostracised from their own culture and customs.

Furthermore, the fact that many Pakeha, also know very little if anything of the same founding
document, (again, The 1835 Maori Declaration Of Independence) it is no wonder many feel
confused about local hisotry.

So why are Maori in this predicament?

Well, being an avid war and military historian, one thing has struck me as obvious! Our Tupuna
(ancestors) lie on the battlefields of South Africa, Turkey, France, Belgium, Greece, Crete,
North Africa, Syria, Italy, Germany, Korea, Vietnam and throughout the Southeast Asian
archipelago in there 1000's and for what?

I can't help but recall how on their return how badly these heroes were treated after all these
wars by the NZ government of the day, with many still suffering combat stress and fatigue and
no mental healthcare available, menial laborious work on land no longer theirs with housing
and education causing major setbacks causing many dysfunctional families that has
decimated Maori whanau and communities nationwide!

These fine men who never returned from battle were to take the mantle of Tino Rangatiratanga
(Self Determination) and Kawanatanga (Governance) of their respective Iwi and Hapu into a
prosperous future and I can not help but remember stories from the returned veterans that it
was common to see young under-age Maori recruits amongst their ranks, some as young as
14 years old, yet if an underage Pakeha tried to join up, he would be sent home immediately.

Therefore, I and others, have concluded that the government intentionally accepted under-
age young Maori recruits knowing it would devastate their future tribal Chieftain ranks as all
knowledge was normally passed down to the Tuakana or eldest male who now sadly lie in the
many foreign cemeteries.

Researchers worldwide are now revealing that all wars since The Battle Of Waterloo in 1815,
were created and funded by the Vatican, Rothschild / Rockefeller Banking Empire, Masonic
and Illuminati secret societies with the Vatican / Rothschild / Rockefeller Khazarian Zionist
Transnational Criminal Cabal now infiltrated into every and endorsed by every mainly western
government since - among many other secret and not so secret societies like The Knights Of
Malta, The satanic Israeli Jewish Talmudic faith that Saudi Wahhabism is based and other
horrors too unbelievably evil to be discussed in length here

So did our Tupuna die in vein in some evil master-plan to rule the world by these
satanic inspired sick individuals called the Cabal? It very much seems so!

Hopefully very soon all truth will be revealed to the world and with Maori language, traditions,
(Tikanga) and customs (Kawa) experiencing a renaissance and exciting revival over the last 40
years, many Maori have begun their journey of seeking their whakapapa (genealogy) in order
to find that missing link in their lives with multitudes of Maori of all ages taking to the stages to
engage in their cultural waiata (songs), kapa haka (group performances) and haka (war
dance).

The Confederated Chiefs Of United Tribes Of Aotearoa 1834 Flag


Ma pango ma whero ka oti te mahi (If Chief and worker unite together, the work gets done)

With the Waitangi based Confederated Chiefs Maori Parliament operating from the Te Tii
Marae Upper and Lower House, those involved in the leadership of their respective Hapu / Iwi
have found it very difficult to find consensus on many very important and pressing issues
amongst those claiming the right to be on the paepae (oratory bench for elders).

The main priority of should be the implementation of governance, infrastructure and


administration of their proclaimed sovereign nation recognized by King William lV himself back
in 1834 being a co-designer of the 1834 United Tribes Flag. (above). However, this is not the
case.

Sadly, The Confederated Chiefs Of United Tribes Of Aotearoa has become


dysfunctional!

For the Confederated Chiefs of the United Tribes Of Aotearoa to continue on its present path
does no one any good, and only creates friction and conflict amongst whanau that will endure
for generations and impedes our long awaited prosperity and progress. THIS MUST STOP!

To reverse this, it would be advisable to firstly ensure the historical facts as to who has the right
to sit in Parliament and on the paepae.

To do this one would have to sit with kaumatua and kuia (male and female elders) versed in
the history of who were represented at the time of inception and have their signatures or mark
on the Declaration Of Independence and / or the Treaty Of Waitangi, verified!

Without this confirmation, they have no claim to represent their Hapu / Iwi, especially without a
mandate from their Hapu and whanau members.

If there are only 12 seats to fill, then others may need to be added to fairly represent their
whanau, Hapu or Iwi.
Once chosen, elected or selected it is then up to the respective representatives to begin the
process of governance and initiating the proper protocols and policies required to operate a
nation and its governance successfully and as a full member of the Confederated Chiefs with a
seat on the paepae and any other title that maybe bestowed upon them according to their
constitution.

Another step in the right direction would be to proclaim independence and sovereignty though
appropriate channels and begin alliances in trade, security and anywhere our new nation could
be of assistance to the other including joining the BRICS alliance and the Asian Investment
And Infrastructure Bank (AIIB) in essence regaining some of the communal lifestyles and
alliances of the past.

Therefore, it is also advisable to research the history of their respective Hapu / Iwi in depth as
knowledge is not only power, it is a tool and a path to self determination, something every
human being should aspire to!

To expect oneself to seek independence, sovereignty and self-determination alone is a very


scary path due to the establishment not wanting us to be self determined in any way and it
takes a thick skin to pull it off and endure that lifestyle until your time is up to ascend to the
heavens. However, many are taking that path to total freedom from government interference
anyway.

Maori now have a fantastic opportunity to proclaim sovereignty, either as an individual or as a


collective, to be self determined and achieve the many things we know Maori are capable of!
The world is changing rapidly and many unbelievable opportunities for Maori exist NOW and
many more are about to show themselves in the coming months and years. Maori must
prepare and position themselves for this new paradigm and moves in this direction must be
taken now.

Funding for major infrastructure and humanitarian projects are about to be released to well
organized organizations with business and project plans available when the expected global
financial reset occurs anytime in the very near future.

Neil Keenan and his organization, Group K, will be releasing these funds when Neil obtains
access to The Global Collateral Accounts worth quazillions (thats 40 zeroes in just one account
and there are up to 12) and each country will create a Non Government Organization (NGO)
with no link whatsoever to the corrupt governments, banksters or even the Vatican that we are
now seeing being exposed to the world.

Please ensure your Hapu / Iwi are prepared well to present to Group K their ideal project/s that
suits the wishes of its people as Neil and his team are passionate about their mission to bring
an end to the Cabal, release project funding and offer expert advice to bring our beautiful
planet Gaia / Earth back from the brink of destruction.

A New Map Of New Zealand's Wireless Networks


June 23 2016 | From: MarkHansen

This map draws lines showing the links between antennae like the one
shown in the image further below. You might have seen these towers on top
of hills while driving. I always wondered what they were used for, and
where they connected to. Now you can see where the links go, and who
they're for.
It's not just huge antenna mast towers like the one shown below. Hospitals, big
businesses, cell towers, weather stations, and offshore oil rigs are connected with these
radio links.

I'm really excited about being able to visualise this data - the map shows over 17,000 locations,
and 26,000 point-to-point links over the whole country.
Here's the visualisation: NZ Wireless Map. Check it out!

Here's just a few interesting things I found exploring the data:

Lake Rotorua
Lakes are awesome to transmit across! They stay flat, and usually have good hills on either
side. Lake Rotorua demonstates this really well - here you can see how densely it's
criscrossed with links.

Auckland Skytower

The busiest place I could find, with the most links converging on one location, was the
Skytower in Auckland. Here dozens, if not hundreds of wireless links converge from all over the
Auckland region.

Hamilton
Hamilton's a very flat city, and there's not much in the way of mountain ranges nearby. I
imagine this would make it difficult to transmit signals to the roofs of buildings in town. On the
map, you can see how transmitting companies have dealt with this flatness - the few high
buildings that do exist are used extensively:

The Hamilton Lake Water Tower (shown)

Waikato Hospital

WEL Building

Signals spread all over town from these vantage points.

Taranaki Oil/Gas fields


You don't usually notice New Zealand's offshore gasfields on maps, but they really stick out on
a map of wireless links. You can see the Maui A and Maui B platforms communicating through
a host of links on the Taranaki shore, and the Kupe Gas field south of the mountain.

White Island

We even have a wireless link set up to an active volcano. Awesome!

Views

Exploring the map, I realised that it inadvertently highlights the best views in the country.
Antenna masts are specifically placed for great views in all directions. Lots of research must go
into finding the places with these great views before spending vast amounts of money erecting
a tower.

Why not take advantage of all this research into great views next time you're deciding where to
go hiking?

Getting the Data on the Map

It's all open source, available on Github. A friend showed me BarTender's work making maps of
cell tower sites he made using Radio Spectrum Management's database. BarTender explains
how he extracted the data from the Microsoft Access Database dump, into a SQLite database
with mdb-sqlite, then used SQL queries and XML tools to manipulate the data into KML files.

Thanks

Many thanks to the people at Radio Spectrum Management in the Ministry of Economic
Development. They've made public a very high-quality dataset containing all the radio licences
in New Zealand. Usually when dealing with datasets with tens of thousands of points, there's a
few problems, but this dataset is pristine. This wouldn't have been possible without their hard
work. Cheers!

Have a look, go exploring, and let me know in the blog comments if you find something
interesting. Feedback is much appreciated.

The Government's Disregard For Evidence Is An Own Goal


June 23 2016 | From: Scoop

By casually dismissing research showing that 90 - day employment trials


have not met policy goals, the Government is undermining its own big data
initiative.
The New Zealand Association of Scientists (NZAS) is alarmed at the Governments
response to a recent study by Motu researchers , and asks John Key to consider the
implications of undermining his Governments own big data initiative for short - term
political gain.

The Government has invested millions of dollars to construct a database that tracks the performance of
every business and every employee in New Zealand, said the NZAS President Craig Stevens,
New Zealanders to benefit from this investment, the Prime Minister needs to be prepared to listen to what
the data says."

The 90 - day employment trials were introduced for all businesses after a pilot suggested that
the trial periods encouraged employers to take on new staff and helped those at the margins
of the labour market, particularly young people, get jobs".

Using the Governments database, Motu researchers Dr Isabelle Sin and Nathan Chappell
were able to measure the impact of the trials on employment.
Royal Society Of New Zealand Claims On Seal Level Rise Don't
Stand Up
June 13 2016 | From: NewZealandClimateScienceCoalition

The Royal Society of New Zealand has released a study claiming that, in the
next
hundred years, New Zealand sea levels will surely rise by 0.3m and 1m is
possible. It
strongly recommends that we should be taking action now to deal with this.

The RoyalSociety claim does not stand up to close examination.

First, the rise in sea level and New Zealand coast has been about 0.14 m over the last 100
years with no sign of a recent increase in the rate.

There is no solid evidence to indicate that this steady rate will increase rapidly in the future.
The Royal Society's claims are based on dubious climate models that predicted that, by now,
temperatures would be 0.5 higher than they really are and increasing faster and faster.

When they fed this dubious data into their sea level models, they predicted rapidly
increasing sea level rise. How surprising!

A Russian climate model alone makes predictions that match recent temperatures. This model
assumes that CO2 makes only a small contribution to global warming. Perhaps it is right!

Related: Humans Are NOT To blame For Global Warming, Says Greenpeace Co-Founder,
As He Insists There Is 'No Scientific Proof' Climate Change Is Manmade

Secondly, they have ignored the fact that, all around New Zealand the land is rising or falling at
different rates. So it is quite wrong to assign a single value of sea level rise to the whole
country.

The Royal Societys conclusions are a serious matter because many Councils are now
restricting building close to the sea and putting restrictions on existing houses that have
substantially reduced their value.

So what do we really know about sea level rise?

The long-term record is from tide gauges spread around the world. The oldest records date
back to the 1890s and the average rise for 225 tide gauges spread around the world is 1.48
mm per year.

See the data at: www.sealevel.info

This is close to the generally accepted 1.72 mm per year for tide gauges.

In the 1990s, Australia set up a series of very accurate tide gauges all around Australia and on
many Pacific Islands.

These show that, for the majority of sites, the sea level rise since the mid-1990s was less than
2 mm per year.
The Pacific Islands record shows, for instance, that the sea level in Tuvalu has hardly changed
since 1992. At the moment, as a result of the current El Nio, Tuvalu sea level is about 100
mm below the level in 1994 - 1997.

According to "Sea level rise history and consequences by Douglas there has been
noacceleration of the rate of rise during the 20th century.

Data is available is from satellite observations since 1993. These show a rise of about 3.2 mm
per year with indications of a recent decline in the rate.

Nobody seems to be able to explain why it is about twice the tide gauge rate. Many climate
scientists have adopted the dubious practice of substituting satellite for tide gauge readings
post 1993 so that they can claim that the rate of rise is increasing.

Predictions of sea level rise from the more realistic of the IPCC computer models range from
about 150 mm to 600 mm by 2100. In 2011, NASAs predictions range from 200 mm to 700
mm.
The Ministry for the Environment and NIWA seem to have used an Australian prediction that
cobbled the satellite record onto the tide gauge record and predicts a sea level rise of
something like 0.5 m to 0.8 m by 2100.

The Royal Society of New Zealand leads the pack with a projected rise of 0.3 m to 1 m. More
than anybody else and much more than the 0.125 m we would expect if sea level rise
continued at its present rate!

So there we have it. All the observational evidence indicates that the sea level is likely to rise
0.1 to 0.2 m by 2100.

But the government, the Royal Society and other public bodies ignore this evidence and,
instead, choose to believe the predictions of the climate and sea level computer models that
have never made an accurate prediction.

On the basis of this dubious evidence they are devaluing coastal properties, preventing
development in places where, in all probability, there would be negligible risk for hundreds of
years and, on Auckland's north-western motorway at least, spending millions of dollars on extra
raising of the existing road to a level far above the likely sea level rise within its lifetime.

So blind belief in flawed computer models overrules the evidence.


Taxpayers and coastal communities bear the cost.

What we need is an independent study by people with open minds and practical experience of
the New Zealand coastline and sea level rise rather than a group of academics.

It should be noted that many of these academics have careers devoted to supporting
the increasingly dubious hypothesis that man - made carbon dioxide causes dangerous
global warming that, in turn, causes rapid sea level rise.

Riding Roughshod Over Middle New Zealand - Fiona MacKenzie


June 12 2016 | From: BreakingViews

Our politicians, bureaucrats and journalists are struggling to stay in touch


with Middle New Zealand. Many of them think its unnecessary. After all,
they hold the power to tell us what we ought to think and what we should
endure.
The system usually works well for them. The Middlers keep to themselves, too busy with
the day-to-day.

Related: Undemocratic Mayors

The problem arises when the people are actually allowed a voice. Referendums must be so
frustrating to those who think they know whats good for us.

Thanks to the binding nature of a couple of recent ones, New Zealand rejected a tea-towel flag
and the New Plymouth Council wont have race-based wards. If only citizen-initiated
referendums didnt have to jump so many hurdles and had the same binding status. The
country might then get a few other things right.

Lets Hear from Middle Maori

Another group we dont hear much from are Maori. We certainly hear them referenced by
those who want unquestioned control over government, natural resources and taxpayer funds,
but it is hard to know who (other than themselves) these articulate and manipulative
spokespeople actually represent.
Herald columnist, John Roughan, recently railed against Middle New Zealand for not getting
with the programme and accepting that Maori should be granted easy access to government
power and control.

So again I ask, who are these Maori who are entitled to unearned privilege and want to
be separated out from the rest of us?

In photos from the latest family wedding, shes fair and beautiful, hes dark and handsome. So
do they want to be separated within our very blended country? Their marriage suggests not.

We are bombarded with what the politically devious, the self-serving and the disaffected think,
but is it possible that Middle Maori could want and believe much the same as other Kiwis?

Mix of World Views

In New Zealand, ethnic-based differences are less obvious than economic ones. Our many
skins tones mix and mingle. People classified as Maori (by themselves or others) range widely
from very dark brown to red haired and blued eyed! There are those who work hard, those
who never lift a finger.

There are those who help their families, their communities and New Zealand to prosper. Then
there are others who prefer to obstruct, intimidate and bully. Some want to embrace
opportunities to create regional jobs; others resist any change or cooperation.
Yet were constantly told that Maori have a superior world view to the rest of us and are more
entitled. Sure, we could just take this as gospel (which its fast becoming), but such a mantra
can be difficult to fathom.

Is the superior world view that of the guy throwing litter from a car, or of the bloke claiming to
have a guardianship role over the environment? Is it that of a parent who neglects or abuses a
child, or that of the dad coaching his kids sports team?

And are the world views of New Zealanders volunteering to plant trees, deal to possums, save
Kiwis or provide community services any less valuable because they have no Maori blood?
There are all sorts in our country and while our politicians, bureaucrats and journalists only
listen to the noisy activists, they may just be missing out on what the people in the middle
really think.

Term Limits & Referenda

People in the middle tend to be the steady voice of practical reason those who keep a
country functioning and growing good future citizens. They know how things work and what
goes on in real life.

Theyre not so easily persuaded by the latest trends and propaganda, being more interested in
what people do than what they say. If only, the politicians, bureaucrats and journalists would
listen to them and work in their best interests rather than ride roughshod over them.
Perhaps term limits would facilitate this. Imagine if all our politicians and bureaucrats had to
give up their day jobs after so many years at the trough. What a great leveller that would be!
They could hit the streets, get an ordinary job and live on an ordinary income anything that
helps them reconnect.

More binding referendums on really important matters might help too. How about the
fundamental issue of who should control water?
Or whether investors should be able to create city housing crises? And whether all references
to race and culture should be removed from the statute books?

If this could be achieved, we might well start living in a true democracy, where every person is
equal to his/her neighbour.

MP Nick Smith Hires Lawyer To Silence Child Abuse


Ring Rumours
May 14 2016 | From: RealNewsNZ

Member of Parliament Nick Smith hired Nelson lawyer Nigel McFadden to


serve papers on the man who runs the Awake and Aware NZ Facebook
page recently.
He was apparently upset about the post below which states that 5 sitting MPs have
name suppression for child abuse, and features a picture of Nick Smith.

If you read the full poster, it does not actually say Nick Smith is one of them, it simply
highlights the fact that Kiwis do not know which MPs it is.

Five sitting / current New Zealand Members of Parliament have name suppression for child abuse
convictions.

Source: WhaleOil

The problem is obviously - the public have no idea who.

But is there more to this story?

Facebook whistle blower Justin Davis has also stated publicly that Nick Smith is in fact
involved in a child abuse ring being operated from his Nelson office.

Justin Davis allegation is posted below and is taken from a total of 58 pages of allegations
Justin has made about child abuse rings operating across various NZ Crown agencies with the
full protection of the NZ police and judiciary.

"Make no mistake the pedophiles have police and CYFS in there pockets.

M.P. Nick Smith got a child rape club running right out of his office by a guy called Dan Dolejs, who has
links to the most powerful pedophiles in this country.

If the head of the wellington hospital emergency department Dr Paul Quigley is getting away with drugging
and raping children, which is filmed , what else do you think might be going on ?

- Justin Davis

It could be noted that Tax Payer Union leader Jordan Williams is also a close friend of Dan
Dolejs on Facebook.

Justin Davis full 58 page transcript of these allegations is available for download below. It is a
pdf document so cannot harm your computer. Its a must read for all good Kiwis.

It names many top politicians, doctors, dentists, and powerful businessmen as being involved
in kiddie rape rings nationwide all apparently with the protection of NZ media, police and
judges.

It even names the Childrens Commissioner Dr Russell Wills as being involved in the
cover up of these rings, as well as Sensible Sentencing Trust head, Garth McVicar also
covering it up.

Warning: The information provided in the following is illicit and highly distrurbing. It names many
well-known New Zealand people and institutions:

ask him questions- and show your support- his life is in danger.

It seems astounding doesnt it? Is it possible that those in the highest positions of power and
prestige in our little Nation are in fact pedophiles?

Yet if we look over to the UK at the recent Westminster Scandal we in fact see that their
Government has been run by pedophiles and pedophile rings, which have operated for at least
40 years with the apparent full protection of the UK Judiciary and power structure.

Over 100,000 children have come forward and claimed they were raped (or worse) by British
Lords, judges, celebrities and MPs, and yet there has still not been one arrest. In fact, NZ
Judge Lowell Goddard has been put in charge of that investigation which is of course just
another cover up.

It seems that this is the way that our Governments are controlled, by promoting then bribing
and controlling pedophiles into positions of power.
John Key pictured feeling up Ponytails at every opportunity.

Related: On Pony Tails And Cherries On Top Or Why This Is Getting Way Worse For
John Key

We should make it clear here that we have no hard evidence that Nick Smith or anyone else
named in the Justin Davis files are directly involved in NZ pedophile rings but if you read the
document, the level of detail is astounding. It is almost impossible to think it is all made up, in
our opinion.

Perhaps one clue as to this alleged situation, is to look at the portfolios these MPs are given to
manage. Nick Smith has of course been put in charge of Auckland Housing and we have seen
that market destroyed by foreign buyers and immigration since the Key regime came to power,
leaving almost an entire generation of Kiwis out of the market.
Smith has been kicked out of parliament because of his screw ups, but as in the case with
others such as Judith Collins - after a few months in the dog box (or more to the point when the
sheeply have forgotten about their past crimes) they get shoe-horned back into parliament!

Nick Smith has been fronting that entire scam - possibly one of the biggest scams of any NZ
government in history, and Nick Smith is there in front of the cameras making excuses and
telling lies day after day. How do you make someone do that?

His other portfolio is the Environment, as we have seen our lakes and rivers be destroyed by
intensive dairy farming to feed Chinese babies.
Related: River Stance: Water Pollution In New Zealand

Again, there is MP Nick Smith on the news telling lies and helping cover up the extent of the
damage. How does the shadow government convince someone to make such a complete
asshole out of themselves day after day? And could that be related to the allegations above?

We have also seen at least one MP stand down suddenly in recent years, in a swirl of
allegations, that being Northland MP Mike Sabin. The public were left guessing what that was
all about.

Then there is PM John Keys numerous pedophilia gaffs from pulling little girls ponytails at
primary schools up and down the Nation, to making jokes about escaped pedophile and
murderer Phillip Smith at the G20 meeting in Brazil a couple of years ago. John Keys killer
pedophile joke disgusts family .

John Keys own daughter Stephanie Key is now doing soft porn in Paris, which looks very
much like a cry for attention and help in our view.

Are we indeed Governed by a Global gang of inbred Rothschild pedophiles? Many across the

Foreign Control Of New Zealand: Key Facts
May 13 2016 | From: CAFCA

Foreign direct investment (ownership of companies) in New Zealand


increased from $15.7 billion in March 1989 to $110.6 billion at March 2015
over seven times.

As a proportion of the total output of the economy, Gross Domestic Product, it has risen
from 22% to 46%.

Ownership of overseas companies by New Zealand residents has not grown as fast over that
period (over five times) so net foreign direct investment has grown eight and a half times from
a net liability of $8.8 billion to $74.6 billion, and as a percentage of GDP multiplied two and half
times from 13% of GDP to 31%.
Foreign Direct Investment from International Investment Position, National Accounts, Statistics New Zealand,
InfoShare series IIP088AA. GDP from National Accounts, Statistics New Zealand, InfoShare series SNE038AA.

Foreign owners controlled 33% of the share market in 2015. In 1989, the figure was 19% and it
was estimated to be below 5% in 1986.

At March 2014, they owned an estimated 29% of all equity (shareholdings) and 37% of
privately owned equity, including shares not listed on the stock exchange.

Foreign investors owned 27% (or $355 billion) of wealth in New Zealand whose commercial
net value totalled $1.3 trillion at March 2015.

This comprised housing, land, other property, plant, equipment and financial assets owned
directly or indirectly by households, government and foreign investors. New Zealand residents
owned a further $202 billion of investments abroad. (These totals exclude wealth held by non-
profit organisations, shared natural wealth such as rivers, and human and social capital.)

freehold land and 4,000 hectares of the leases and other interests in land were from one
foreign investor to another.

In the decade 2006 to 2015, the average was 124,012 hectares of freehold and 42,044

overseas interests are poorly recorded and incomplete.

Our best estimate is that in 2011 at least 8.7 percent of New Zealand farmland including
forestry, or 1.3 million hectares, was foreign-owned or controlled and it could have reached 10
percent.

"Overseas Ownership Of Land: Far Greater Than The 1% The PM Claims", by Bill Rosenberg
(www.converge.org.nz)

Statistics NZ figures, as of March 2015, list the biggest foreign owners of New Zealand
companies as being from, in decreasing order: Australia, US, Hong Kong, UK, Singapore,
Japan, Canada, Netherlands, British Virgin Islands, Ireland, Cayman Islands, China,
Switzerland, Norway and France.

All had over $160m in foreign direct investment in New Zealand. These accounted for 96% of
foreign direct investment in New Zealand and Australia alone accounts for 52%. British Virgin
Islands and Cayman Islands are tax havens, and a Statistics New Zealand study showed that
in 2010, large proportions of the foreign direct investment from the Netherlands, Singapore,
Hong Kong and tax havens was in fact from other countries, led by the UK, US, Germany and
Canada.

In 2015, Other tax havens with investments in New Zealand companies include Vanuatu,
Channel Islands, Liechtenstein, Bermuda and the Bahamas, but for all except Bermuda, the
value of their holdings has been suppressed as confidential.

Bermuda has shown a negative investment in New Zealand companies since 2009 (negative
$1.8 billion in 2015). So has Germany since 2013. Negative investment suggests that the
companies may have been loaded with debt to their parents or are technically insolvent.

The Financial and insurance services sector, which includes the four big Australian owned
banks, accounted for by far the biggest part of foreign ownership of New Zealand companies
by industry in March 2015, with $32.1 billion. Next was Manufacturing at $14.7 billion.

Other industries having more than $1 billion of foreign investment were in decreasing size,
Agriculture, forestry, and fishing; Retail trade; Wholesale trade; Electricity, gas, water and
waste services; Rental, hiring and real estate services; Professional, scientific and technical
services; Mining; Information media and telecommunications; and Health care and social

Transnational corporations (TNCs) make massive profits out of New Zealand. These can truly
be called New Zealand's biggest invisible export. In the year to March 2015, they were $9.0
billion. Over the last decade they have averaged more than the combined exports of seafood
and milk powder.

In the decade 2006-2015, TNCs made $77.5 billion in profits from New Zealand, an average
rate of profit after tax on their shareholdings of 12.5% (12.0% in the year to March 2015). Only
26% was reinvested (only 15% in the year to March 2015). Profits have averaged twice the
increase in foreign direct investment holdings each year.

Another $7.9 billion left New Zealand in the year to March 2015 made up of investment income
from debt and smaller shareholdings (portfolio investment), making a total $16.9 billion. Over
the last decade this has averaged more than the combined dairy and forest product exports.
Related: International Ownership of New Zealand Banks

More than two out of every five dollars of the $16.9 billion went to the owners of New Zealand's
banking sector: $6.9 billion. The investment income from overseas ownership of the banking
sector ("Deposit taking corporations") after taking account of its small investment income from
abroad, accounted for four out of every five dollars of New Zealand's current account deficit in
the year to March 2015: $6.5 billion compared to $8.1 billion.

The investment income deficit (income on New Zealand investment overseas less income on
foreign investment in New Zealand) has been greater than the current account deficit for all but
two years since 1989, which further increases New Zealand's foreign liabilities.

Foreign investors are not great for employment - they only employ 17% of the workforce (down
from 21% in 2000), despite owning a large proportion of the economy. Foreign ownership does
not guarantee more jobs. In fact, it quite often adds to unemployment. TNCs have made tens
of thousands jobless.

Foreign ownership does nothing to improve New Zealand's foreign debt problem. In 1989, total
private and public foreign debt stood at $47.5 billion, equivalent to about two-thirds of New
Zealand's Gross Domestic Product, and worth $86.4 billion in March 2015 dollars.

As of March 2015, it was $246.2 billion (or $270.9 billion including derivatives), equivalent to
102% of New Zealand's Gross Domestic Product despite being helped out temporarily by
$20.2 billion of insurance claims for the Canterbury earthquakes and all of the asset sales and

100 Days - Claiming Back New Zealand


April 20 2016 | From: 100DaysToDemocracy

Horrified and shocked-she isnt the only one: This isnt the New Zealand
our parents and grandparents lived in* - and were certainly not the better
for it.
So isnt it high time we started holding to account the politicians whove been so very
largely responsible for this, and for the fact that many New Zealanders are now finding it
difficult to afford living here in what is (or was?) our own country?

Its not a good sign when those returning from the UK, for example, comment on how much
more expensive everything is now food, electricity, very basic living costs.

Even more crucially, we now have the least affordable houses of any country in the world in
relation to income although we all remember Prime Minister John Key blatantly denying there
was even a housing shortage in Auckland. How could he have not known?

NZ Herald: Home truths: Can you afford to buy in New Zealand?

So perhaps its not surprising that PM John Key has been so very keen to get rid of the flag
that they* and we have long lived underthe one flying over us all. John Key wanted the
Union Jack removed, and apparently, the politicized Chinese with whom he gets on so very
well agreed with him. Of course.
Related: What Is The Real Agenda Behind John Key's Drive To Change The New Zealand
Flag: Due Authority - A Very Silent Coup?

But not Hong Kong Chinese, fighting for basic freedoms against their predatory neighbour.
Hong Kong Chinese apparently value the Union Jack, saying it represents the freedoms they
had under the British and no longer have, and that it expresses the difference in values
between Hong Kong and its over-authoritarian Communist government.

All the nonsense talked by Key and parroted by the inner circles of government about New
Zealanders needing to discover our national identity and our own place in the world is
basically manipulation.

How many of us go to sleep fretting about our national identity?

Mind you, as its increasingly not being seen as our own country any more, this question is
going to be raised but not as the PM apparently wants. We pretty well knew our own place in
the world in fact we owned our own place. But do we now?

Increasingly New Zealanders feel that we dont. Nor will many of us have been impressed by
learning that Key also sent a text to former All Blacks captain Richie McCaw (whom weve
recently seen in an advertisement for an Australian-owned bank) and his team-mate, Dan
Carter, asking them to watch his video promoting a flag change.
Whether this is appropriate behaviour for a Prime Minister, and whether sporting figures would
be wiser to refrain from being lured into looking too close to powerful politicians is another
issue.

The PM, of course, has his devoted cheerleaders among the media, so perhaps its not so
extraordinary as it would otherwise be that we can guarantee many of them are managing not
to look too closely at the essentially vulgar antics which have been his trademark at a personal
level.

However, more worryingly, what should be a proudly independent fourth estate manages to
pretty well look the other way and to barely, if at all, mention happenings which are so
extraordinary that they should have us all shocked and horrified not just the individual who
heard, second-hand, of the one below.

It has been, culpably, so little reported that we should be doubly grateful to Senior Herald
reporter, David Fisher, for making us aware that the Prime Minister was the guest of honour at
a private fundraising lunch held at an Auckland Chinese restaurant.

The point is that it was hosted by the Change the Flag lobby group to raise cash from wealthy
Chinese donors who supported the flag change. A small handful of Nationals MPs were there,
too.

It was all to fund a last-minute push for votes, including a pamphlet to send out just
days before the voting started. This small, exclusive lunch was not publicly advertised,
and the Change the Flag chairman, Lewis Holden, confirmed not the names of the
donors, but that over $100,000 was raised for the entire campaign.

He admitted that some was donated by the Chinese donors who wanted the Union Jack gone
from the New Zealand ensign, Mr Holden commented naively, some would say.
In January, Taiwan elected its first female president after a furoreWe knew there was support
in the Chinese community because of the Union Jack" just before Election Day when a 16 year
old Taiwanese singer for a girl band was forced to give a forlorn apology for holding a
Taiwanese flag on a TV show. China has refused to allow the 7.2 million people of Hong Kong
a free vote next year on deciding who will lead the city.

And reportedly, an uproar in Hong Kong over the disappearance of five dissident booksellers
believed to be in the hands of the Chinese security services has also understandably a had
huge impact on public opinion in Taiwan.

This of course, is typical behaviour from a brutal Communist rgime which imprisons,
tortures and even executes dissidents (let alone its continued opposition to Chinese
Christians, and its appalling record of farming the Falun Gong to forcibly remove their
organs for live transplants organs.

Not that New Zealand ever officially and publicly protests any more than many countries
similarly turned a blind eye to the appalling and barbarous treatment that Nazi Germany
showed to its Jewish population, in World War 11.

And yet, does or does not a country have a moral responsibility to make its views publicly
known about a trade partners oppression of its own people? Is it okay to just look away, to
pretend it isnt happening or doesnt really count?

Mr Holden should have specified that he was referring only to the increasingly large
Communist Chinese community in this country.
Other long-settled Chinese in New Zealand would not only disagree (including a highly
respected academic who protested in his youth at the butchery of Tiananmen Square) but are
deeply concerned at the influence that Communist Chinese interests are apparently having on
our National Party government, dominated by its acknowledged authoritarian leader.

In fact, Mr Holden admitted he was pretty surprised that John Key agreed to come. Concerned
New Zealanders who have been asking what is happening to this country, and why we have
the state we are now in, are not all surprised. After all, the buck stops at the top.

Interestingly enough, too, back in November, 2015, a Facebook user John Miller spotted
another flag design one of those proposed appearing on the labelling for New Zealand
apples in Shanghai. He asked, Do the Chinese know something about the outcome of our flag
referendum that we dont know yet?"

NZ Herald: Alternate flag design used in Shanghai


The same flag was reported as being flown at a butchers shop in the United Arab Emirates.
Somebody must have been pretty certain that the flag change was a done deal.

Three cheers for the New Zealanders who got the whiff, from somewhere, of a decaying rat,
and put a stop to this attack on a heritage we can be proud of, in spite of all the unfair, and
highly suspect, disparaging of colonialism.

As Hong Kong can testify, and as other African nations show us, its a wise observation that
there are far worse things than colonisation, and that post-colonisation is apparently one of
them.
Similar to the Prime Ministers former denial of any problem with the Auckland current housing
market has been his repudiating any connection with the uncontrolled immigration flooding the
country.

The migration influx is breaking all records with, as reporter Hamish Rutherford informs us, the
net gain last year being equivalent to a city the size of Nelson. In one year alone

John Keys simplistic assertion that unrestricted immigration is of economic benefit to


the country has long been disproved. So why does he keep repeating it?

As Westpac senior economist Anne Boniface says, record immigration:

"Is helping to maintain a semblance of strong economic growth but the preponderance of people in the
labour market is keeping wage growth lower than would otherwise be.

And of course it is the unprecedented demand for housing from those flooding into the country,
plus the ability of far more wealthy immigrants to outbid New Zealanders for our own houses,
which has us at crisis point although the government of course is not acknowledging this.

Nor is the building of new houses anywhere near able to compensate for the extraordinary
demand, not with virtually 68,000 in the year ended in February this year.

The result is not only a dramatic shortage of houses but of decent jobs (some now observably
preferentially offered to Chinese workers paid less by Chinese business owners and
employers).

The flow-on effect includes shortages not only of housing and of wealthy property investors
outbidding New Zealanders to rent back what should be their own houses to them.
Theres now an unprecedented exodus to the provinces with a leap of house-buying driving
house prices outside Auckland up beyond the reach of local residents.

Pressure has increased on land, on hospitals and all other social services

So the questions are being asked:

Why is National, under its leader, John Key, more interested in protecting the interests
of potential NZ migrants and offshore investors over and above the large and growing
number of Kiwis priced out of the market?

The comments keep coming that National has been in Government for 9 years and it has
the power to effect change, but that it wilfully does not because John Key thinks that rising
house prices are good politics.

But if it isnt being brought home to more and more New Zealanders that it is shameful for
our government to protect the interests of people who dont even live here above those
of New Zealanders themselves -then it should be.

But is there more to all this than a seemingly nave National Party leader having his own way?
In the real world, where the uber-wealthy are looking for bolt-holes to escape the increasing
scrutiny of their governments, New Zealand has long been viewed as a ripe plum ready for the
picking.

Super-rich overseas owners, with obliging specialists lawyers to hand, have already hoovered
up our high country sheep stations and farms, some owning multiple properties, including our
scenic assets and, seemingly whatever takes their fancy (in spite of the OIOs supposed
scrutiny of the value of these land grabs to New Zealanders).
It doesnt take anything more than commonsense to take on board the fact as more and more
of our farms, our land and our houses are bought up by immigrants or pass into overseas
ownership, more and more New Zealanders are being squeezed out of owning these.

Its a depressing scenario for the dairy sector as banks face possible billions in write-offs. John
Key admits that low dairy prices may see banks facing losses with farmers forced to sell, but,
in a cavalier fashion dismisses the prospect as normal for businesses.

This sort of pragmatism, an indifferent approach to those facing the devastating prospect of
losing their family farms and homes, walks past the point of who is going to be in a position to
actually buy the land particularly when the Reserve Bank states that under its severe
scenario it is unclear whether there would be sufficient cash among buyers to absorb the
added number of farms which would inevitably be put up for sale.

Unclear in relation to New Zealand buyers, perhaps, but there is no shortage of finance from
Chinese sources.

While a number of foreign nationals have been busy acquiring what they can, more or less
under the radar, it is the very real threat to our sovereignty from Communist Chinese interests
underpinning Chinese investment which is most ominous.
A Financial Times article of March 2016 by Lucy Hornsby The Great Land Rush: Chinas
Pengxin hits overseas hurdles points to the marketing of Theland with where cows gaze
on emerald grass below white clouds shaped like New Zealand.

It makes the point that Pengxin;

"A little-known Shanghai real estate developer that owns Theland, will become the worlds largest private
landowner if Australias authorities clear its most ambitious bid yet, to gain control of the grazing lands of
the S Kidman & Co cattle empire. That, plus holdings in New Zealand, makes Pengxin the boldest of
Chinese corporations investing in land, and has helped trigger a backlash."

It continues: The financial Times, in a series of reports, is examining governments and private investors
increasing interest in grand scale land deals. With the commodity supercycle ending, land the ultimate
resource could either become the next big thing or the source of cross-border disputes In November,
Australia blocked the A$350 million sale on security grounds. But there are further complications.

Pengxins bid for Kidman draws on its experience as Chinas largest land investor in New Zealand.
However, (reportedly) its expansion there has reached a limit only months after it announced plans to
double its Kiwi assets to NZ$1bn, or 50 farms. In reply to written questions from the FT, Terry Lee, the
president of overseas investment for Pengxin, wrote that investing in New Zealand farmlandhas been
more challenging than we thought.

This is excellent news and is no doubt due to those very few reporters and columnists to whom
New Zealanders owe a great deal for their spotlighting of these issues as well as to those
who have been asking the questions that our government would apparently prefer not to
answer.

What the Financial Times also noted was the understandable rising resentment in this country;
enthusiastically promoting Chinese tourism may be working to our own disadvantage, for
obvious reasons.

The fact, too, that Pengxin is reportedly building its own integrated dairy business, is a direct
challenge to our already struggling Fonterra, our major dairy exporter upon whom thousands of
New Zealand farmers depend.

No wonder that global market forces are coming into conflict with local populations, given the
fact that nobody is making more land (except, in fact, the Communist Chinese, arousing
disquiet through their aggressive military expansions as well as through attempts to
circumvent legal requirements within a host country) .

Yes, this comes from another political party. But don't let that fool you - notice how it doesn't matter which party is
in power, they all follow the same agenda. And so while Labour is critical as the opposition - nothing would change
under their leadership

Kerry Brown, Professor of Chinese studies at Kings College London, points out that China is a
real problem for Australia and New Zealand with its huge markets growth potential and very
real needs. His warning is timely, namely, that underneath;

China remains alien in terms of fundamental values and political beliefs."

The implications are clear, and as has been well stated, those who do not know their history
are doomed to repeat it. The lesson of the Trojan horse Timeo Danaos, et dona ferentes
I fear the Greeks, especially when they are bringing gifts is to all intents and purposes ignored
by the John Key government enthusing over a damaging flood of immigration and a level of
foreign investment which threatens our own productive economy.

A recent National Business Review editorial points out Chinese companies have so far this
year bought more foreign companies than during the whole of last year.

In the past few years, most of the interest has been in agri-business. Recent deals in New Zealand have
included dairy farms and factories, meat companies and horticultural ventures as well as companies such
as PGG Wrightson

The Chinese are also seeking high technology companies but this is proving difficultthe wave of
purchases has spread to the hospitality sector and entertainment.

An additional NBR editorial, discussing the revelations of the Panama Papers, notes that a
third of the business of a law firm involved has been in helping Chinese clients ship their
money overseas and out of reach of the Communist regime.

A BBC report How Chinas wealth is sneaked abroad, implicates New Zealand as a
major target for a property-buying spree totalling US$ 32 billion around the world last
year.

A featured comment will have resonated with many:


fact that most New Zealanders perceive even though Keys National government is
apparently determinedly avoiding facing this fact.

As a consequence, and given the weakness of what should be our major Opposition party,
New Zealanders are well and truly on the way to becoming tenants in our own country.

For this reason, even those who do not support the left-wing Chris Trotters political views,
may well agree with his statement that New Zealanders disengagement from the political
process (in which we were once among the worlds most enthusiastic participants) has been
accompanied, and justified, by the widely held belief that politics has become an almost
entirely disreputable profession.

His vague assertion that the answer lies with, and in us the New Zealand
electorate suggests no concrete solution.

But there is one. It does not matter that it would be a most unwelcome one to by far the
majority of our politicians, and to those with the money and influence to assist the
government in its decision-making. And here I recall former Finance Minister Ruth Richardson
thanking millionaire Doug Myers, then Chairman of the New Zealand Business Roundtable for
his valuable help to her in her portfolio)

We all know that we have moved a long way from being a far more democratic country that we
once were. The loss of our freedoms has been gathering pace even freedom of speech let
alone the ability to be genuinely involved in the decision-making of our governments
although this very much affects us.

Reforms are undertaken from time to time as with the now signalled, but well overdue
simplification of our tax system. Too little, too late for so many. But apart from our ability to
routinely throw out governments which have caused perceivable damage to our country, in the
interval between our elections the government elected as the lesser of two evils inevitably
claims a mandate for actions for which it has no genuine mandate at all.

The solution? It is what the highly intelligent Swiss have long insisted on the reform of our
political system so that any legislation passed by Parliament, no matter what party is in power,
nor what deal-making has gone on behind the scenes, has to wait for 100 Days.
This mandatory stop on all proposed laws gives the people of the country time to examine it for
fishhooks. If satisfied, they allow it to pass. If they are not, it takes a very small proportion of
their electorate (50,000 in a county with double our population) to call for a special kind of
referendum, the results of which are binding on their government.

The fact that this provision is there puts a stop to constant trade-offs, in contrast to the never-
ending passing of legislation which pours forth from our own government whereas Swiss
parliamentarians meet only once a week, and are able to hold down day jobs.

For more information on how the Swiss govern themselves, visit our website at
www. 100days.co.nz

Above all, we need to remember that there is nothing so powerful as an idea whose
time has come and there is nothing more effective than individuals joining together to
achieve a tipping point to insist on being genuinely part of our countrys decision-
making.

Controlling our politicians though the eminently achievable 100 days initiative, now well under
way, is available to each of us.

Each of us not everybody else. If you are concerned about what is happening to our country,
please support us! We need you all.

Hypocrisy And The Water Debate


April 19 2016 | From: NZPCR

The water debate is heating up, with orchestrated attacks on water bottling
companies. Maori leaders want a price on water.

With the resource estimated to be worth $35 billion a year, they know that once National
give them control of fresh water, they will be able to claim royalty payments for future
use and compensation for lost revenue.

As the Maori Council chair Maanu Paul said on Tuesday;


Any commercial operation will have to pay a fee, and that is the issue as far as the council is concerned
because these people are profiting from the use of a common good that belongs to Maori.

Previous governments have rejected such opportunistic claims by Maori leaders. But in an
astonishing act of hypocrisy, the National Party MP, who is advancing the current attempt by
Maori to control fresh water, led the campaign against their attempt to control the foreshore
and seabed.

While Nick Smith is now turning a blind eye to New Zealanders concerns over Maori control of
water, in 2003 he stood up for the public. During a protest march down the main street of his
Nelson electorate, he said;

Ordinary New Zealanders, who have shown a huge degree of tolerance to treaty claims and spending on
Maori issues, have had enough.

Dr Smith claimed that while senior Labour Government ministers were negotiating with Maori
over the ownership of the foreshore and seabed to find a win-win solution, the answer was
very simple:

The Government should pass legislation confirming the Crown as owner on behalf of all New Zealanders.
Anyone who wants to divide up the shoreline for one exclusive group of citizenship must be stopped.

In 2004, the National Party published a newspaper advertisement opposing the Governments
bill to give Maori control of the foreshore and seabed, calling on the public to send in
submissions.
Their ad criticised the Government for giving Maori special rights:

Labours basic message to Kiwis is: if youre not Maori, then no matter how long you live here, you can
never love this land as deeply or care for it as responsibly as Maori. Provisions like these will
disempower your family forever

National opposed Labours plan to give Maori the power of veto over resource consent applications:

You know what that means. You want to build a boat ramp. But the local iwi says Not so fast. Your ramp
will have a significant adverse effect on our customary rights. You then have two choices. A court case
(bound to be long and expensive). Or a bribe (merely expensive). You pay the koha. Nothings changed.
New name, same old scam.

The ad opposed Maori being given joint management rights, saying the new law would give Maori
strengthened ability to participate in decision-making processes. Strengthened ability? That means only
one thing. Joint management.

They complained that Maori claims to the foreshore and seabed would be hard to oppose:

The Government has created a situation where these orders will be rubber-stamped by the Maori Land
Court a judicial jack-up. Say an iwi applies for an order. You can bet no-one will object. Why? Because
they wont even know about it No hearing. No debate. No comeback.

National warned that under Labours new bill, The koha racket will continue. Part-Maori descendents of
signatories to the Treaty of Waitangi will still be able to hold up any development until their terms are
met. Theres only one word for that. Extortion.

And they claimed the new law was divisive: This legislation will divide our country, not bring it together.
This is not the way to build a better future for all of us. National says the foreshore and seabed is Kiwi
property. Not iwi property.

Nationals present position, as outlined in Dr Smiths consultation document on fresh water


reform, reeks of double standards.

Maori tribes will be given joint management rights and the power of veto over councils the
very things National objected to in Labours foreshore and seabed legislation.

Their plan to pass the responsibility for rubber stamping iwi claims to fresh water onto local
authorities, will make such deals hard to oppose again something National complained about
in their fish hook ad.
And with multiple tribal groups involved in the control of freshwater in any catchment, iwi
consultation and the whole koha racket will skyrocket.

Comment: The 'racial divide' call is made often. The truth is however that the
corruprtion is equally represented on both sides. Whether referencing political parties,
Iwi, Maori, Pakeha - there are those on both "sides" who are more than happy to screw
over their "own people" in the interests of themselves and / or their globalist handlers.

Back in 2003, with local authorities spending $3.4 million a year consulting with iwi, and the
Corrections Department alone spending $2.2 million consulting iwi over three new prisons,
National spoke out strongly against the rising cost of iwi consultation.

Nick Smith also objected to the inclusion of Maori spiritualism in the RMA:

It is political correctness gone mad when key decisions on infrastructure are made on the basis that it
will adversely affect Maori spiritual beliefs and self-esteem. This decision is an invitation for
backhanders

He said;

There can be no certainty of property rights when the fantasy world of Hollywood starts being given
credibility by our courts. This example follows previous rulings by the Environment Court about diverted
waters adversely affecting Maori self esteem, and motorways and prisons being diverted or held up over
taniwha. It shows just how politically correct and stupid the Resource Management Act has become and
highlights the desperate need for reform.
He made a promise:

National is committed to a thorough cleanup of the Resource Management Act to remove any references
to the spiritual world. This sort of hocus pocus has no place in the courtroom.

After eight years in government, not only has the hocus pocus not been cleaned up, but Dr
Smith is about to make it a whole lot worse. Through sweeping co-governance rights and the
power of veto over democratically elected local authorities, the radical Iwi Participation
Agreements proposed for the RMA will condemn councils into endless consultation with
multiple tribal groups.

The result will be more and more abandoned projects as property owners decide its not worth
the hassle.

Bob Jones explained what it was like consulting with iwi in 2014, when he wanted to restore a
window in a commercial building in central Auckland that had been removed by a tenant.

Since the building was within 50 metres of one of thousands of new designated Maori heritage
sites introduced by the Auckland Councils Maori Statutory Board, under the Draft Unitary Plan,
it needed a resource consent. To gain that consent, Sir Bob had to seek the approval of 13 iwi,
ranging from Taranaki to Whangarei. Letters were duly written.

Sir Bob explains:

Five replied stating they had no concerns while others said they were considering the matter, presumably
calling huis to weigh up this window crisis. One respondent bearing that fine old Maori name of Jeff Lee,
representing something called Ngai Tai Ki Tamaki, contacted the planner

After advising the planners verbally that no Cultural Impact Assessment Report was required for the
window, he nevertheless asked them to consider it brace yourselves given his ancestors, centuries
ago, gathered in the vicinity. Lee then wrote, outlining his terms for assessing the windows cultural impact
which, he said, would take him a total of six to eight hours. For this he sought $90 per hour plus GST and
travel expenses of 0.77c per km.
Unsurprisingly, Mr Lee was told to get stuffed.

Treaty Settlement Acts are now littered with requirements to involve iwi in decision-making.
Anyone wanting resource consents in the vast number of areas where statutory
acknowledgements exist must consult all iwi individually with each no doubt charging
substantial fees for their pro-forma cultural assessments.

In fact, stories of RMA rorts are everywhere and National knows it has become legalised
corruption. But rather than taking a principled approach and removing race-based
requirements from the law to create a much-needed level playing field they clearly intend
making the problem a whole lot worse.

Further, instead of fulfilling his promise to take spiritualism out of the RMA, Nick Smith
embedded it, through Te Mana o te Wai, in the 2014 National Policy Statement on Fresh
Water.

Dr Smith should know only too well how inappropriate it is to include cultural spiritualism in
water quality controls but such is his hypocrisy that he intends strengthening the concept in
the forthcoming reforms:

When Te Mana o te Wai is given effect, the water body will sustain the full range of environmental, social,
cultural and economic values held by iwi and the community.

In his fresh water consultation document, Dr Smith proposes to require regional councils,
when setting freshwater objectives, to identify the values of the iwi and hapu that have
associations with those freshwater bodies.

Hand-in-hand with recognition of their association with water bodies, there needs to be ways
for iwi and hapu to participate in decision-making about those water bodies. This decision
making occurs through development of regional policy statements, regional plans, catchment
plans, and consenting.

His approach will result in Maori tribes controlling waterways throughout New Zealand, clipping
the ticket whenever anyone applies for consents and, if a price is put on water, pocketing a
royalty every time a tap is turned on.
The Northland Regional Council has spoken out against plans to give Maori authority
over freshwater bylaws, consents and other statutory responsibilities. They are adamant that
decision-making is the job of elected councillors.

Chairman Bill Shepherd also explained how the governments use of the word iwi in
consultation documents was problematic for Northland, where the landowners were primarily
hapu and there were 190 of them.

Imagine having to negotiate with 190 tribal groups every time you want to make a decision!
Nationals approach highlights the absolute hypocrisy of the claims by Minister Nick Smith, that
their RMA reforms will bring consistency into local government.

This weeks NZCPR Guest Commentator, former Judge and law lecturer Anthony Willy, has
been examining the powerful forces behind the fresh water reforms:

""Nick Smith the Minister responsible for the governments fresh water policy said at a recent public
meeting in Auckland called to discuss the matter, There would be an obligation on local councils to consult
with iwi about the use of water in which they might have a special interest, but there was to be no
suggestion of co-governance

Anthony refutes these claims, quoting from a memorandum filed by the governments lawyers in the
Waitangi Tribunal Registry should there be a need for a resumed hearing.

He concludes, This puts it beyond doubt that the government is open to discussing both co
governance with the Iwi Leaders Group and the allocation of fresh water to persons of Maori blood on a
race basis.

The document confirms that the Crown worked closely with Iwi Leaders throughout 2015,
developing fresh water policy proposals to be included in the public consultation process. It
states their priority for 2016 will be Economic Development.
They intend developing a range of mechanisms to enable iwi/hapu to access fresh water in order to
realise and express their economic interests.

He concludes, This puts it beyond doubt that the government is open to discussing both co governance
with the Iwi Leaders Group and the allocation of fresh water to persons of Maori blood on a race basis.

What this means, is that once National gives iwi control of fresh water, they intend to develop
mechanisms to generate economic returns. As sure as night follows day, there will be an iwi
levy on water.

If you havent put in a submission opposing all race-based proposals for fresh water reform,
then please do so as numbers really matter on issues like this. A simple email
to watersubmissions@mfe.govt.nz stating your position is all that is needed.
For Sale: 40 Billion Litres Of Canterbury's Purest Water
April 7 2016 | From: Stuff

A council in the drought-prone Canterbury plains is selling the right to


extract 40 billion litres of pure, artesian water to a bottled water supplier.

The Ashburton District Council is selling a section in its business estate, known as Lot
9, for an undisclosed sum. It comes with a valuable resource consent
that allows abstraction of water from aquifers beneath the town.

The council has refused to publicise information about the deal, which is understood to be with
an overseas company. It has outraged some residents, who say water is desperately needed
locally.

Related: Hawke's Bay company's first shipment of drinking water

The area's artesian water is increasingly popular in overseas markets such as China, with its
New Zealand origin often featuring in branding and marketing.

The consent allows the holder to take 45 litres of water a second from local aquifers,
totalling more than 1.4 billion litres a year. It expires in 2046, meaning the buyer will gain
access to more than 40 billion litres of Ashburton's pure water.

It was approved in 2011 by Environment Canterbury and includes a recharge consent,


meaning all water taken must be replaced from other sources.

In a statement, the council confirmed it was in the process of selling the site;
"The parcel of land includes an existing consent for water abstraction from local aquifers," it said.

"The prospective buyer is interested in setting up a water-bottling plant."

Council chief executive Andrew Dalziel would not answer questions about the sale, citing
commercial sensitivity. Standing orders prevented councillors from discussing the sale, which
is expected to be finalised in June.

It is understood there has been no consultation with ratepayers or other interested parties,
such as iwi, about the deal.

Sir Mark Solomon, chairman of Te Runanga o Ngai Tahu, said it was "disappointing" the iwi
had not been informed.

"Twenty years ago the Ashburton region had reasonably good water quality, but it is now an over-allocated
catchment and faces some of the most pressing water quality challenges in our takiwa [tribal region],"
said.

"It seems incredible that the council wouldn't think more broadly about the future of its existing consents."

A premises in the Ashburton Business Estate, where the Ashburton District Council is in the process of allowing a
bottled water company to extract 40 billion litres of water.

Ashburton resident Jen Branje is leading community opposition, and said the lack of
transparency raised alarm bells.
"We live in a drought-prone area - farmers aren't given consent to bore for water for their crop-growing, so
why on Earth are we selling it off-shore?"

The Ashburton groundwater zone is over-allocated, meaning water allocated to consent


holders exceeds the amount available for use. New groundwater consents are difficult to
acquire, making existing consents more valuable.

Branje said a lack of consultation did not give locals faith the sale was in their best interest.

"This whole thing has gone on behind the ratepayers' backs. No-one has any clue about it whatsoever.

It's a blimmin' lot of water, and it shouldn't be allowed to go off-shore. If anything, that water should be
sustaining our own economic backbone."

Ashburton often has issues supplying water during the summer. In some areas, water
restrictions banned residents from using hoses to water their gardens.

When applying for the consent, the council came to an arrangement with meat processor Silver
Fern Farms, allowing it to deepen its bore if Lot 9's water abstraction caused groundwater
levels to reduce.

Auckland Councils $1.2 Billion IT Shambles


March 4 2016 | From: NationalBusinessReview

Reports have filtered through about the $1.2 billion blowout by Auckland
Council on IT since the supercity was formed in 2010.
This level of overspend is phenomenal and it is unclear whether the council has
anything to show for it.

What is clear is the council has failed in its governance responsibilities to Aucklanders and
ratepayers.

Last year, the auditor-general raised some serious concerns around the project NewCore
which has received attention for its $100m overspend, saying the project carries an almost
certain risk with a major impact.

At the time the council responded by saying all was under control citing the following reasons:
this includes quarterly reporting to the finance and performance committee, project steering
group meetings held each fortnight in line with best business practice, and independent
ongoing quality assurance reporting from EY to identify issues.

So I took a look at the reporting mentioned, and while shocked, wasnt surprised at what I
found.

A review of the finance and performance committee meeting agendas and minutes show just
how badly our leaders have failed us in governance.
In 2015, the same information on the IT transformation programme was regurgitated four times
when updating this committee (in February, May, September and December). A quick review of
the minutes of each of those meetings shows no overview of any discussions, except in
September when the public were excluded for reasons of commercial confidentiality.

There is no mention of how investment is turning up in actual operational savings, except


broad statements around targeting savings. Any type of rigorous risk reporting framework is
completely absent.

Additionally, I find it astounding there was no mention of the vast gaps in governance
highlighted by the auditor-general in 2015. This is a complete failure not just by council staff
accountable but the governors of Auckland.

Having worked in the IT and communications sector in senior management and governance
positions during my 20-years in business, I have never seen such gross negligence at all levels
of project management and people must be held accountable for this, including the cost
blowout and lack of governance oversight.

For $1.2 billion, you would not only have transformed your IT systems and processes, migrated
your whole staff to modern-day computing solutions, such as cloud-based communications,
and have built new network infrastructure, such as a mobile network. The fact the council is
attempting to combine systems is an inaccurate justification for this level of investment.

We need strong leadership focused on delivering results for Auckland. Theres quite a few
steps that need to be taken in order to address this level of incompetence.

Here is where I would start:

Demand the appropriate level of reporting from those accountable in the council to
governance. This includes updates on benefits realised, milestones and gating which
decides whether the project is moved to the next phase, rigorous risk assessment and
monitoring, and a thorough update on scope changes driving costs and benefits, as a
start;

If governance reporting is not addressed satisfactorily in a short time frame (i.e. 3-6
months), then replace those individuals to get the level of accountability that is a
fundamental tenet of large capital investments like this;

Ensure the risks highlighted by the auditor-general are taken onboard by council staff
accountable for this programme and risk mitigation strategies are embedded not just in
the programme but governance reporting;

Ensure the benefits, outcomes, project scope, business and technical requirements
were aligned and reported on regularly at both an operational and governance level;

Not take at face value that management is doing this. Its clear from the significant
gaps in what the council says it is doing and what is turning up at the committee
meetings that the most prudent assessment would be to assume the appropriate levels
of reporting and risk management are just not in place; and

Ensure management is running an incredibly strict capital prioritisation process


around scope changes required.

This blowout is completely unjustifiable, especially when residents in Riverhead and Maraetai
cant even afford decent footpaths in their communities.
The irony of reading the committee meetings is the talk about deferring millions of dollars of
desperately needed investment that has been put on hold while the IT funding goes
unmonitored and ungoverned.

I will provide strong leadership, fresh ideas, and deliver real results for Aucklanders. I have the
governance and operational experience to ensure Auckland has the right level of reporting and
questions in place to avoid debacles likes this.

River Stance: Water Pollution In New Zealand


February 26 2016 | From: Listener

Ecologist Mike Joys unsanitised views of the sorry state of our fresh
waterways make him a target of vitriol. But hes not about to change his
tune.
The cool water flowing around Mike Joys legs looks clear and clean. If it wasnt for a
stiff southerly blasting over the Canterbury Plains and across the bed of the Selwyn
River, it might even look good enough for a quick dip.

Related: Horowhenua Horowhenua pensioner bashed in late night attack after


highlighting pollution of waterways to Council - not the first such incident

But looks deceive. If the pollutants that leach through our intensively farmed soils and into
lowland rivers such as the Selwyn made the water run red, wed quickly grasp the scale of the
problem, says Joy. Instead, the water at Coes Ford a spot where he spent blissful days as a
Christchurch schoolboy in the 1960s and 70s, and where he now stands as one of New
Zealands loudest environmental whistleblowers is polluted by invisible toxins.

Its high in nitrogen, which fuels the growth of slime and algae, and there are regular spikes
of E coli, meaning the swimming water quality is ranked as poor.
Trout used to run in their tens of thousands up this stretch of the river. Christchurch anglers
could knock off after a days work and half an hour later be casting their lines into a fishery that
rivalled the fabled Turangi. But these days Fish & Game rangers count just dozens of trout.

In the middle of the river bed theres a tell-tale black streak. Its Phormidium, says Joy. The
naturally occurring algae thrives in rivers that have been altered by vegetation clearance and
enriched by excess nutrients. It can quickly grow into a toxic mat across an entire river bed.

HDC was the clear message given by Mayor

Within a fortnight of the Listener photographing Joy here, Environment Canterbury had issued
a fresh alert warning people to stay away from the site, reporting significant quantities of the
potentially toxic algae, which can cause rashes, nausea, cramps, tingling and numbness
around the mouth and fingertips.

And which can kill. There are instances in New Zealand of dogs dying after drinking
contaminated river water and licking algae-covered rocks. It seems it will only be a matter of
time before a child dies after ingesting some of this, Joy predicts.
Typical Joy focusing on the negatives, looking past the postcard images of crystalline alpine
rivers to shout about the ailing state of streams that flow through farmland, publicly
undermining our clean green image.

He became a household name three years ago after he was quoted in the New York Times on
the eve of the release ofThe Hobbit saying the pristine environment portrayed in the film was at
odds with this countrys poor showing against many international benchmarks.

Previously, an article hed written saying that New Zealand was delusional about its
environmental performance was used to embarrass Prime Minister John Key in a high-profile
interview with the BBCs Stephen Sackur.

After the New York Times story, political lobbyist Mark Unsworth emailed Joy, accusing the
Massey University ecologist of economic sabotage and describing him and his cohorts as the
foot and mouth disease of the tourism industry.

Most ordinary people in NZ would happily have you lot locked up, he wrote.

Political activist Cameron Slater blogged that Joy ought to be taken out and shot at dawn for
his treachery.

[Comment: Oh how the truth hurts. And shoot the messenger?]

The New Zealand Herald accused Joy of overstatement, and scolded that his damaging
analysis had reached an international audience. When challenged by Sackur, Key shrugged off
Joys critique as merely a view that could be easily countered by other scientists, and insisted
that for the most part its possible to jump into any New Zealand river for a swim.

Looking back on the backlash, Joy says he was hurt but undeterred. For every one Unsworth,
there are 20 people who randomly email me or ring me and thank me for what Im doing.

The Way He Sees It

Hes carried on putting his head above the parapet, increasingly abandoning the language of
academic restraint to tell the story of what he sees as an environmental crisis. In the past two
years alone he has delivered 102 public talks to environmental, farming, community and school
groups. And this month, he has published the story in a long essay, Polluted Inheritance.

Referencing monitoring reports and studies that normally lie beyond the public gaze in
scholarly journals and the archives of regional councils, Niwa and other crown research
institutes (CRIs), the essay is effectively a Mike Joy state of the environment report one that
paints a far bleaker picture than the official version published a month ago by the Ministry for
the Environment.

Of 112 monitored lakes, a 2010 Niwa study found 44% are eutrophic so burdened by excess
agricultural nutrients that they have become murky, smelly and inhospitable to many fish,
reports Joy. Almost all (90%) our lowland wetlands the kidneys of our waterways have
been destroyed.

Three-quarters of our native freshwater fish are threatened with extinction (up from 20% in the
early 1990s), yet only one the grayling, which has been extinct for decades has legal
protection.

Digging through the data on more than 300 monitored river sites, he reports that more than
two-thirds of those surrounded by farmland exceed Australasian guidelines for nitrogen levels
in water, beyond which aquatic life starts to be affected.

Thats up from 40% in 1990. Phosphorous the other key agricultural pollutant, carried into
rivers by soil erosion exceeds guidelines in most intensively farmed areas (although levels
have been slowly falling since the late 1990s).

And then there are the tiny creatures whose presence signals the well-being of rivers
invertebrates such as mayflies and stoneflies, which are measured by the Macroinvertebrate
Community Index (MCI).
Niwa has mapped MCI scores around the country, painting in red where low insect life denotes
serious pollution: the map burns bright red throughout the intensively farmed regions of
Canterbury, Southland, Auckland, Waikato and Taranaki.

Weve squandered our environmental riches, argues Joy, and ended up with a pattern of
degradation that places an inequitable burden on the poorest communities.

Yes, the pristine rivers and lakes still exist, but they are largely in national parks where people
with time and money to drive or fly long distances can enjoy them, whereas the worst effects of
intensive agriculture are concentrated in lowland rivers and estuaries close to where people
live places which, in the past, have been available to those with limited income for food
gathering and cheap recreation.

quickly take over a river bed, and can be toxic to animals and humans. Photo/Martin Hunter

Dairy Boom

How has it come to this? Farmers, claims Joy, have been incentivised to pollute. The dairy-
cow population has doubled since 1992 without there being regulation controlling the volume of
nutrients and pathogens that flow from their free-range excrement through the soils and into
waterways.

This intensification has been enabled by new inputs such as palm-kernel expeller (PKE) and a
420% increase in nitrogen fertiliser use since 1990, leading to stocking rates than wouldnt
otherwise be possible. The ability of catchments to absorb the effects has simply been
overwhelmed.
Twenty-five years after the dairy boom began, the Government has belatedly written
environmental bottom line standards for freshwater into the rule book. But in Joys view (one
shared by many others in the freshwater field), the proposed limits are so weak they would
allow for further pollution, and crucial measures of aquatic health, such as the MCI index, have
been left out altogether.

The underlying problem, he says, is that those who pollute dont pay to clean up the damage.
Instead, the cost falls on the public in the form of a degraded environment and lost
opportunities.

In his most controversial offering yet, earlier this year he co-authored a paper (with masters
student Kyleisha Foote and Massey University colleague Russell Death) that extrapolated from
a raft of published research on the cost of environmental clean-ups to conclude that if the
pollution caused by the dairy industry was properly accounted for it would exceed the industrys
total economic value.

The farming sector was scandalised, and academics including Waikato Universitys Jacqueline
Rowarth and Frank Scrimgeour criticised Joy and his colleagues for naivety and sloppiness.
It's not our fault bro, all we did was turn up

But if it confirmed Joys reputation as a stirrer and a troublemaker for the dairy industry, it
seems not to have affected his standing with New Zealands biggest farmer, Landcorp.
Suddenly, Joy just three years ago condemned as a traitor and saboteur has found himself
inside the room with the leaders of the most influential agri-business in the country. How did
that happen?

Landcorp chief executive Steven Carden says the strategy of the state-owned enterprise is to
achieve both an economic return and environmental sustainability. Joy is one of six paid
members of an environmental reference group to advise it on how to achieve that. We thought
we could take the safe path of finding experts who would tell us what we wanted to hear, or we
could challenge ourselves and bring in people who are outspoken on the environmental
impacts of dairying.

Other group members include veteran environmentalist Guy Salmon, innovative farm
consultant Alison Dewes and maverick water campaigner and businessman Angus Robson.
Carden says debate in the first couple of meetings was ferocious, but the search now is for
farming solutions that will work. We will listen to them Its not a green stamp.

On The Inside

Inside the room being listened to by influential people is a surprising place to be for a late-
starting scientist who still sees himself as an outsider. Joys academic career didnt begin until
he was 33. He ditched school at 17, by which time his policeman fathers job had taken the
family from Christchurch to Wellington. He was academically average and a bit of a bogan. I
was a hoon at school, always off chasing girls at lunchtime.
His first job was in a bottle recycling factory in Petone. It
was rough as guts. I went from school to a full-time job
there employing people coming out of jail, overstayers
I became the foreman at 17, running these guys driving
trucks and forklifts.

He moved to Palmerston North in pursuit of a girlfriend and


got a job on a 65-cow dairy farm, which he ended up
managing. I loved it loved the cows and the job.

He moved on through a succession of jobs labouring,


truck driving, building. He did a stint driving taxis all night
and spending his days doing up a 100-year-old yacht.

He bought an empty section up 74 council steps in the


Wellington suburb of Wadestown and built a kitset house
on it, which is still there.

He and his partner, Allie Hewitt, sailed across the Pacific to


Tonga, and later found work on a remote outback farm in
Australia.

The place was owned by two estranged brothers who lived


at opposite corners of the 40,000ha property, and it hadnt
seen rain for four years.

We killed 6000 ewes, recalls Joy. The farmers had $2 a


head in their wool fund to get rid of them. The market was
shot. At night, he and Hewitt would go spotlighting for
kangaroos, legally, to sell for dog tucker, which brought in
enough cash for the farm to pay their wages.

When they returned to New Zealand in 1993, jobs were


scarce, and both decided to enrol at Massey. By the third
year Joy was enrolled in Deaths freshwater ecology
lectures, and he became immersed in the field of
biomonitoring using animals as a measure of ecological
Dogs are known to have died after contact with the algae on the Hutt
health.
River and the Ashley in North Canterbury

That interest became the basis for a PhD using artificial intelligence to develop predictive
models of fish populations, drawing on a raft of environmental variables including climate and
geology.

The models describe, with a high level of accuracy, the freshwater fish communities that ought
to be present in any given spot, which can then be used as the benchmark from which to
identify the reasons the actual population may be depleted. The work was published
internationally and, according to Death, was globally ground breaking.

Up to this point, Joy had no particular concerns about farming or the effect of land use on
water.

I was a fan of farming. Id been a farmer. But that started to change.

It was so frustrating, day after day, going to streams, setting up kit and finding the same old suspects the
three species that can handle any conditions instead of the 20 species that ought to have been there. At
hundreds of sites, all you ever found were upland bullies and short-finned eels and a few trout.

He started getting angry at the degradation he was seeing. Then he got angry about the failure
of regulators to act on it.
Headline-Grabber

Fifteen years on, that anger has driven Joy onto the podium and into the media with a
frequency and stridency that have attracted both respect and resentment from his peers.

University of Otago ecologist Marc Schallenberg, president of the Freshwater Sciences


Society, says for the most part Joy is simply reporting on publicly available data, and the
message hes putting out there is right.

Schallenberg says in his own field work on lakes and estuaries he sees the same decline in
water quality that Joy describes, and the cause:

Couldnt really be anything else [other than agriculture], unless there is a climate-change signal that none
of us has picked up yet But when you see whats going on the land and the sheer amount of waste thats
put onto the land its not rocket science.

But he says most scientists have no appetite for the advocacy role Joy has assumed.

Scientists often are dispassionate people because part of our training is really just to look at the data and
not get passionately involved in any particular outcome or finding
[Joy] has taken a lot of flak and thats one of the reasons some of us would be reticent. But I appreciate
what he does, and more than anyone he has brought these issues into the public perception.

Given whats at stake for New Zealands agricultural economy, Schallenberg says theres a
tendency among vested interests to spin the environmental data;

So you need people to come out and call a spade a spade and engage with the misinformation thats out
there. Im quite grateful that Mike is that person for us.

Waikato University ecologist Kevin Collier vouches for Joys scientific credentials and says the
message he communicates resonates with him.

But people make contributions in different ways. Some are more comfortable doing the science through
more conventional means and some are more comfortable being a bit more outspoken. Certainly Mike has
taken a lot of hits where other people would have given up because it was too hard.

Others are affronted by Joys methods. He has come out swinging against scientists from Niwa
(the agency whose monitoring data he widely cites), accusing them, in the midst of the stoush
over the proposed Ruataniwha irrigation scheme in Hawkes Bay, of providing advice on
nutrient limits in the Tukituki River that was biased in favour of the client:

If you were working for Niwa and all your work came from these councils or the Ministry for the
Environment Youve got to feed the kids and pay the mortgage. Are you going to say its a bad idea?

Joy had breached a cardinal rule of scientific decorum dont slag off your peers in public. The
Hawkes Bay Regional Council strongly rejected his comments, and Niwa rejects the
allegations as well. Ill-feeling between Joy and the CRI remains. When
the Listener approached John Quinn, Niwas chief scientist (freshwater and estuaries) for
comment on Joy, he politely refused.

The behaviour we would like to see is where we talk about each others work in the context of
[conferences and personal communications], not in the media

Having public spats is not helpful for the credibility of science.

Waikato Universitys Professor David Hamilton, immediate past president of the Freshwater
Sciences Society, damns Joy with faint praise, calling his academic work steady. Hes
productive but he is not at the top of his field. If he was, hed be a full professor. Joy, he says,
has raised the profile of water issues, but upset peers by casting aspersions on their
independence and strayed beyond his core discipline by commenting on issues such as
environmental economics and soil contamination.

The Cost Of Speaking Out

Death says his former student and long-time Massey University colleague has taken up the
mantle of environmental advocate at considerable expense to his academic career. Joy is a
senior lecturer and was declined for promotion to associate professor recently.

The university promotion system works on rewards for publication in scholarly journals, not for
talking to community meetings or writing op-eds.

Traditional science is meant to be about helping the wider public and communicating, but in
reality there are so many barriers to doing that, that you have to make a conscious decision to do
it.

Meaning?
New Zealand scientists tend to want to be like most Kiwis and not antagonise people, but if you go to
conferences in the US its the complete opposite. They get up and criticise you not personally but the
science. And thats what science is meant to be. But New Zealand scientists tend not to want to do that.

They tend to want to stay among the crowd and not speak out and upset anybody

The other unfortunate thing is funding. Most of the funding in New Zealand, in contrast to other countries, is
very much tied to the Government directly or indirectly, and for whatever reason the Government is quite
tightly linked with many of the industry lobby groups, particularly dairy, and dairy is certainly not very keen
on us outlining that water quality in New Zealand is degrading as a result of what it is doing.

Joys boss, Massey University vice-chancellor Steve Maharey, has backed the scientist
through the various controversies, provided he can support his claims. (Maharey says he can.)

Steve Maharey

But for Joy, there is more at stake than tenure and job security.

Theres a fight to be had with the Government over what he sees as bogus bottom-line
standards for freshwater; theres a battle to be won in boardrooms such as Landcorps to bring
the true cost of environmental degradation to account; theres a public to be enlightened.

Ive decided that this problem is more important to me than my career. This job is the longest job Ive had
in my life. Im sure Ill get by if I lose this job. I can go sailing or truck driving.

It means far more to me to put guys like [Environment Minister] Nick Smith in the spotlight than it
does to keep paying the mortgage.

Maybe if Id been a career academic I wouldnt be like that Im looking for my next opportunity to tell
New Zealand about this.

The academic has become an activist, he says, not because I chose to be, but because I have to be.

Radio Station George FM Warns Staff About Max Key


February 12 2016 | From: NZHerald

Radio DJs at George FM have been warned they will be taken off air if they
say anything negative about the station's newest host, Max Key [son of
Prime Minister John Key].

Key's new role at the station was unveiled last week, hosting a one-hour show on
Tuesday nights. He will unveil his debut single Forget You on his first show next week.

Comment: Obviously Max Key becoming a night time host for a show on George FM has
stirred up some controversy. I know I sent them an email saying what a stupid decision
it was and that I would never listen again to heir station as long as he was on it. It seems
their management (Media Works owned by Rupert Murdoch) have instructed all their
staff to stay mum about this on air and on social media. What are you scared of
George? The truth?

An unverified email reportedly sent to all George FM staff warned staff that "all social media
relating to the new night George FM Night time residents must be positive.
"We will not tolerate any negativity relating to any of our new roster," the message continued. "Anyone who
cannot adhere to this requirement will be taken off air instantly."

Mediaworks didn't respond to requests for comment about the statement.

When contacted by the Herald last week, Max Key said he "wasn't doing media" and didn't
want to comment.
George FM founder Thane Kirby

But George FM DJ Aroha Harawira spoke out in support of Key, saying he should be judged on
his musical ability and not his father's politics.

"I haven't met Max Key yet myself, I've never seen him DJ, but I heard him on George FM last night and I
thought he played a pretty sweet set," Harawira wrote on her blog site.

"I value my friends' opinions and I'll give the guy a chance. I think you should too ... Say what you want
about John Key, but leave his kids out of it."

Max Key's first show on George FM is on February 16, where he'll unveil his new
single, Forget You, rumoured to be about his recent split from Amelia Finlayson.

In an interview on the station, Key said he'd been working on his material on his own, and he
was "super excited" to release it. Co-host Jay Bulletproof said he had heard the song, and it
was an "absolute banger".

"I'm proud to say I'm releasing my first single Forget You. Previewing on my first show on George fm
nights, Tuesday the 16th at 10pm ... I can't wait to drop this," he wrote on Instagram.
Maori Elder Kingi Taurua Sends TPPA Partners, Queen A Formal
Notice Of Veto Of Trade Agreement
February 4 2016 | From: NZFoodSecurity

Kingi Taurua, a prominent Nga Puhi elder at Waitangis Te Tii Marae, has
sent a formal notice of veto of the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement to
the embassies and trade departments of its proposed partner countries,
and has requested that the Queen intervene on the issue.

Related: The Long Awaited TPPAFacts.co.nz: The Facts Minus The Spin
The document cites the Treaty of Waitangi and the 1835 Declaration of Independence of
New Zealand, and states that the New Zealand government does not have due
authority to sign the TPPA without the agreement of Maori elders, which [agreement]
has not been given.

Related: What Is The Real Agenda Behind John Key's Drive To Change The New
Zealand Flag: Due Authority - A Very Silent Coup?

Mr Taurua claims that the TPPA would be void in respect of New Zealands involvement as a
result, should it be signed.

NZ Food Security has obtained a copy of the document sent by Mr Taurua, which is
titled Notice of Non-Assent to the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement and Exercise of
Constitutional Power of Veto in Respect Thereof.

The public release of the document comes just as the TPPA is due to be signed in Auckland,
New Zealand on February 4 by visiting politicians from countries around the Pacific.
Mr Taurua is currently meeting with other Maori elders at Te Tii Marae in preparation for a visit
by John Key, prime minister of New Zealand, and other government officials on Waitangi Day,
February 6, after the scheduled signing.

He has previously stated that Mr Key would not be allowed onto the marae if the controversial
trade agreement was signed, although a trustee for the marae stated on February 2 that Mr
Key would be allowed onto the land.

It is thought that the notice sent to the partner countries of the TPPA is being discussed at the
marae in anticipation of the visit, as the document asks the Queen to stand in opposition to the
agreement with Mr Taurua and those other Rangatira o Te Whakaminenga o Ng Hap o Nu
Tireni referring to the other chiefs gathered at the marae that agree to my position.
The document says that he requests and requires the Queen to intervene and act
as Protector of New Zealands sovereignty from attempts on the sovereignty of our
Independent State by overseas corporate interests. At least one other elder has already
countersigned the document.

The language of the document echoes that of the Declaration of Independence, which was
signed by Mr Tauruas ancestor, Pareha of Ngati Rehia. He says that another ancestor of his,
Te Kemara, was a signatory of the Maori version of the Treaty of Waitangi 1840.
Last year the Waitangi Tribunal found that Maori did not cede sovereignty when they signed
the Treaty of Waitangi, and it is apparently this sovereignty by descent or tino rangatiratanga
that Mr Taurua is claiming he is able to use to formally veto the trade agreement.

The document closes by stating that Mr Taurua does not give [his] permission to the Trans-
Pacific Partnership Agreement being signed in Auckland by the visiting officials from
overseas which position I take to the full extent of my right to regulate trade in that district.

The Declaration of Independence, which was approved by the Queens predecessor King
William IV and ratified by the British government, states that Maori elders would gather at
Waitangi each autumn in order to regulate trade.

'CYFS Need To Listen To Carers'


January 28 2016 | From: RadioNewZealand

A Porirua family took in a baby so neglected he showed no emotion. Now


he's full of life. They also took in a baby born at 25 weeks and turned her
into a happy, healthy wee girl who's off to school soon.

And because they've taken on the children permanently - giving both them and the
children the security of knowing they have a family for life - they lose all Child Youth and
Family Service (CYFS) support and allowances and receive just $19 a day per child from
Work and Income.

They can't change the children's surnames, they can't take them out of the country without
permission and, if their birth parents want contact, they have to make it happen.
"So why would anyone sane do that?" carer Jude Pointon says.

"The only people who would do that are people who have had a background like mine [Jude was fostered
and adopted as a child], who have gained through having a background in fostering or adoption."

In his first annual report on CYFs, State of Care 2015, released today, Children's
Commissioner Russell Wills found systemic failures in the service and said it was doubtful
children were better off in state care.

He strongly criticised CYF for what he calls a "dump and run" culture of neglect.

Read the full report here.

Jude and her husband have first-hand experience of that culture.

Before they became permanency carers, they fostered children and Jude tells of having
siblings aged one and three in their care for two months, who then had to go back to their
parents for a few days because CYF didn't have its court documents in order.

"I said 'what do I tell them? They need to know what's happening,' and they said 'tell them they're going for
a ride in the car'.

"So I had an absolute hissy fit ... and said 'that's not okay, the system is making me into a long line of
adults who have failed these children and we're creating this country's future criminals and they have been
let down over and over and over again'."

Jude told the social worker they would have the kids back when the situation was sorted, but,
she says, because she had spoken her mind the children were sent to another home.

So it was a three-year-old's fourth foster home and it was a one-year-old's second foster home.
And that happens over and over again," she says.

Jude's sister - a social worker and CYF emergency care foster parent - recently had two
children arrive in the middle of the night. They were with her for a few days but then weren't
returned after school one day.

"She was told 'they've gone to another placement' and she said 'well that's really not okay because they
were told they were coming here, they've had an unsettling time and suddenly they're not coming here,
they're going somewhere else they don't know, again and all their precious belongings that they've
managed to take from their home are here'."

Those belongings might just be a teddy bear or a book but to a child with nothing they are
everything.

We have a serious national problem here in New Zealand with child abuse and satanic paedophile organisations.
It is hideous to comprehend, but the reality has to be faced - and those responsible, and even those that have
been commiting these crimes for over 50 years - should know that they will be held to account for their heinous
actions.

Social workers shocked. Jude's sister arranged a meeting with about 20 Porirua social workers
and she, Jude and another foster parent told them what was wrong with the system.
"Some of them were actually shocked to hear from a carer's perspective how it feels to the carer and the
children," she says.

"It makes me annoyed because the foster carers and the permanency carers are the experts. Sure, the
children who have been who've been through the system are the experts but often they're too young to put
across coherently their point of view.

We know what's wrong with the system. We're happy to tell you. We're happy to tell the policymakers. I'm
happy to talk to the minister. Listen to us."

And that, simply, is Jude's message to the powers that be who want to fix the care system.

"Listen to the foster carers and ... the permanency carers, because we are here every day dealing with it
every day, and we know what can be done to try and fix the situation and make it work for these vulnerable
children.

It really infuriates me when I hear on all media people talking about CYFs looking after these children.
CYFs don't have some big warehouse somewhere with all these children slotted in it, it's actually families
who are looking after these children who are often damaged, going out of their way to try and help these
children have as normal a life as they can given the neglect they've had to start with.

It's like we're these invisible people."

The "Minister" Must Step Up

Former ward of the state Tracey said the State care system was broken beyond repair.

Tracey was removed from her family in the late 1970s when she was 11 because of abuse and
said she lost track of how many foster homes she lived in.

She told Checkpoint nothing has changed.

"They've lost track of over 1000 children - they don't know where they are, what's happened to them.

"How can you lose 1000 kids? The Minister of Social Welfare is their guardian, is their parent, so that
person has better step up and look after these kids."

Tracey said society would have to live with the consequences if children in care were not
properly looked after.

Another former ward of the State, Tupua Urlich, said more support was needed for people
when they left care.
Mr Urlich said although he felt like a prisoner when he was in care, he had no support when he
left and developed alcohol and drug problems. He also tried to take his own life.

People needed a home environment to fall back on well into their 20s.

"The average age of leaving home in New Zealand is 23. You have the luxury of being at home, parents
helping you out," he said.

"I know some people will hear this and think 'I didn't do that for my children' - sure but at least they knew
they had the option of going home, getting their washing done, getting given a meal or support, real
important things."

Mr Urlich now works with child support group the Dingwall Trust.

A Constitutional Timebomb: Is New Zealands Government And
Court System Unlawful?
January 27 2016 | From: InvestigateMagazine

It could be the most fundamental New Zealand issue of the century: if a


group of Australian lawyers and researchers is correct, the Treaty of
Waitangi ceased to be valid on January 10, 1920, and the New Zealand
Government does not, lawfully, exist. In an even bigger potential crisis
nor do the laws. As Ian Wishart reports, even New Zealand constitutional
lawyers cant rule out the possibility they may be right.

If it sounds like the Coalition Governments worst nightmare multiplied by a factor of


ten, youd be right. Every three years for more than a century, New Zealanders have
gone to the polls to elect governments believing, for lack of any reason not to believe,
that this was how democracy worked. You elect a government, they make your life hell,
you vote them out again.

We were told, as a nation, that the Governments powers derived from our status as a
constitutional monarchy. But now, important new legal research is threatening to turn our
perception of who we are, as a nation, on its head.

The establishment view of constitutional law is that New Zealand, lacking a written constitution,
is a country where the Government holds the ultimate power to make laws and regulations.

Just how entrenched that establishment view is, can be demonstrated in a current debate in
New Zealand legal and judicial circles about the powers of the Courts to rein in bad
Government. Lord Cooke of the Privy Council, formerly New Zealands Chief Appeal Court
judge, has suggested the Courts do have some power to control the Government. He argues
that if the New Zealand Government re-introduced slavery, for example, that the Courts could
strike it down.

Unfortunately for those who believe the judiciary is a check on Government power, Lord Cooke
is a lone voice in New Zealands legal community. Other judges and lawyers have indicated
they have a constitutional duty to uphold legislation passed by the Government, however
damaging that law might be.
John Key Wants War Between Maori And Pakeha. Are You Going
To Let Him?
January 25 2016 | From: AotearoaAWiderPerspective

On the 4th of February 2016 two days before Waitangi day. John Key
intends to sign the TPPA. The treaty will allow international corporations to
usurp most of New Zealands sovereignty. It will deregulate the financial
industry, allow corporations to sue our government for loss of profit if we
dont let them run rough shod over what is left of our fragile ecological
systems and destroy what is left of our social support systems.

It will also destroy one of the most important social documents and contracts of this
country: the Treaty of Waitangi.

And John Key knows this. The ruling elite knows this and they like the idea! What is more,
most Pakeha who identify with the ruling elite rather than face reality and realise they are part
of the 99%, like that idea too!

And its an easy fault line for the 1% to aggravate the 99% into an all out civil war between
Maori and Pakeha and here is what is being done to make sure they get what they want.

The signing of the TPPA in Auckland two days before Waitangi day guaranteed to incite a
heated emotional response.

John Key intending to attend the Commemorations at Waitangi Marae which is the mother of
all shit stirring exercises.

Opinion Pieces in major news papers inciting racial division and Mike Hosking pandering to
the basest of prejudices as ususal!

Releasing information about riot police being trained to deal with political unrest to inflame
emotions.
People inciting violence in comments on political blogs to make sure the people who own
those blogs can be arrested or made redundant as part of the aggressive political fringe
loonies when they try to inform people.

Putting up the rag touted as the new flag to inflame emotions.

And here is what is traditionally done to make sure unrest will arise even if the people keep
their cool:

So what can you do to help the people in Waitangi to speak truth to power and make sure this
can not be pinned on Maori being obstinate?

For starters if you are Pakeha, Chinese, Indian, European, Muslim ,Christian, in short not
Maori and against the TPPA, you can go to Waitangi in support of the refusal of The Waitangi
Marae Kaumatua to receive government officials in protest of the signing. Show them you
wont be played against each other and that New Zealanders of any creed and background are
against the corporate take over of New Zealand!

Do so in peace and respect for the treaty and the people there.

Maori or otherwise: prevent anybody from becoming violent or aggressive and keep it
dignified and silent and allow the sheer number of people to speak rather than individual
voices. Even if they sign the TPPA they have to implement it and that will only happen if we let
them.

Take mirrors and let the trained government thugs have a goo long look at themselves! It
works in Ukraine! We need the people authorised by the banker usurper John Key to commit
violence, to realise that they are also part of the 99% being sucked dry by the banksters!

And remember all of us living on these Islands: This is our home! We can make it
heaven or hell. The international banksters are hell-bent on making it hell. Lets not give
it to them! Lets commit to make peace and abundance for all!

Disinterest In Pre-Maori History Stuns


January 25 2016 | From: BreakingViews

Official disinterest in pre-Maori New Zealand history stunned Australian-


based researchers Peter Marsh and Gabi Plumm in Part 1 of their new
documentary series titled Skeletons in the Cupboard.
Episode 1 The Redheads assembles evidence that Aryans from India migrated to the
islands of the Pacific, including New Zealand.

The idea is not new. Edward Tregear's 1885 book The Aryan Maori had the same suggestion
at a time when ideas about Aryan (or Caucasian) migrations became popular and were applied
to New Zealand.

Mainstream historians like Richard Hill, Vincent O'Malley, and the late Michael King, dismiss
the theories as lacking evidence, not bearing scrutiny, wild speculation, racist, or seeking to
discredit Waitangi Tribunal claims.
Substantial evidence collected in 1988 that showed human occupation of New Zealand pre-
dated Maori occupation by thousands of years was hidden in National Archives for 75 years.
This includes carbon dating collected by 37 government-funded archaeologists in a one-year
survey of stone structures in the Waipoua Forest near Dargaville.

Plumm interviewed one of those archaeologists, Noel Hilliam, who said that the initial dating
showed the structures went back to 2225BC, which is about 3150 years before Maori history
began in New Zealand.

Why the cover-up? Hilliam said:

The Maori guy in charge of the Waipoua survey closed the operation down the day after the initial dating
came through.

The survey was deposited at National Archives in Wellington with a note requiring approval of
the Te Roroa-Waipoua Achaeological Advisory Committee or other appropriate Te Roroa
authority for release of any of the data.
There was a significant noticeable change in Maori culture after they arrived in New Zealand
800 years ago, Plumm said.

They built planked houses with decorative facades, used single-hulled canoes instead of outriggers,
fashioned terraced village sites with amphitheatres, and created complex art forms not seen in the Pacific.
What made them change? Plumm said.

New Zealand was inhabited when the first Polynesian canoes arrived, according to Maori oral
tradition, which includes accounts of blond-haired, green-eyed flute-playing small people, the
Patupaiarehe, as well as red-haired giants.

Plumm showed photos of skeletons in coffins less than 1.5-metres long.


Hilliam obtained DNA analysis of material found in the caves where the skeletons in coffins
were located. The forensic pathologist in the United Kingdom who did the analysis confirmed
they had the DNA identical to that of ancient Celtic people from Wales, and were 3500 years
old.
Where did the light-skinned, blond-haired, green-eyed people go? They are still among us.
Monica Matumua, who grew up at Rena on the Wanganui River 27km from Taumarunui, has a
family tradition that their ancestors 165 generations ago migrated from India to escape a war.

If a generation is 20 years, 165 generations goes back 3300 years, to 1285BC, which
coincides with the end of the Indus Valley civilisation in northwest India.

Matumua says her ancestors sailed across the Atlantic to Central America, relocated to South
America, sailed to Polynesia, and sailed further to New Zealand 74 generations ago around
535 CE, landing in the Bay of Islands near Russell.

The name Ngati Hotu was given to her ancestors with the arrival in New Zealand of Kupe, the
supposed first Polynesian to arrive in New Zealand from 925 to 1215 CE.

Matumua was stunned to see that Waitangi Tribunal member and historian Angela Ballara
declare that all Ngati Hotu had been wiped out. Matumua told her story to the tribunal as part
of a claim on behalf of Ngati Hotu.
In 2013 she submitted a sample of saliva to the National Geographic Genographic Survey,
which aims to map historical human migration patterns by collecting and analyzing DNA
samples from around the world

Results published in Elocal in February of 2014 showed the first reference population matching
Matumuas DNA was based on samples collected from the Kinh ethnic group living in Vietnam.
Her second reference population is in Puerto Rico.

Her haplogroup, which includes those people with similar DNA results and where some of her
more recent ancestors settled, showed that parts of South America and New Zealand were
very closely related to her DNA code, with Hawaii particularly close.

Marsh and Plumm also talked to moko artist Jason Phillips, Ancient Celtic New Zealand author
Martin Doutre, Barry Brailsford, who studied the oral history of the Waitaha, and Secret Land
series writer Gary Cook.

They referred to an incident in Awanui in the Far North by an excavator driver who found 2000
skeletons hunched in a fetal postion, bound, and buried.

The driver asked the Auckland Museum for advice and was told the museum could do nothing
because the local tribe had no interest in these remains because they were not their people.
The remains were not investigated.

The 60-minute documentary that was released in November of 2015, the first part of a series,
is quality cinematography and sound fronted by the British-born writer of short stories and a
childrens book and filmed by a Fiji-born Australian.

Being outsiders and independent of state funding, Marsh and Plumm do not have to pick a side
in New Zealands culture war.
Skeletons in the Cupboard shows that our past is much more interesting than you ever
imagined.

Couple Receives Notice Of Search 12 Months After It Happened


And Why That Should Worry You To The Extreme
January 19 2016 | From: AotearoaAWiderPrespective

A golden bay couple received a letter from the police. Attached to that was
a signed search warrant. What was also attached was a postponement
notice. The search had taken place, without their presence, 12 months
earlier.

It appears that the police felt they could have something to do with a threat issued
against Fonterra. the threat was that milk powder would be contaminated with 1080.

Related: Satanists Escape Plan Involves Killing Natives Of New Zealand

The couple, who had an impeccable record of non-violence and peaceful activism both here
and in their native country Germany, was stunned to learn that the police had been in their
house and had gathered hair tooth paste swabs and computer printouts. They had also
downloaded telephone data and other storage data from their computers, and Ipads. They
were also stunned that the police had been allowed to do so without their presence and been
able to keep it secret for 12 months.

During the period National has been in power several draconian law changes where pushed
through. One of them the the way the police can search your home and the way they can spy
on you.

While most law abiding citizens assumed that it was to help the police find real nasty criminals
such as drug dealers and gang members involved in crime or dangerous terrorists, for those of
us political activists and bloggers it was just a matter of time for these powers to be used for
the intimidation of people involved in activism of any kind.
The Kleinen family being a perfect example of people who are active and politically aware and
who still had a modicum of trust in the system. From the article you will learn that they are no
longer willing to cooperate with the police or even contact them.

For them to find out a year after the fact that the police had been in their home secretly in
January 2015 and had taken personal and private information as well as samples of their DNA
without their knowledge as well as raiding their home another time in March 2015 when they
were present broke whatever trust they have and it will do so for a lot more people.

While the fact that the police can enter your home without your presence, secretly and without
supervision is terrifying in and of itself just imagine what could happen if this becomes the
norm and the police see this as a normal part of their investigation.
What is next?

Will they start planting evidence if they dont like your political views?

Will they, as we witnessed in the Nicky Hager raid, lie to the judge to get search warrants for
their political masters and set people the government doesnt like up to be jailed after kangaroo
court proceedings? Some 20 million Russians were killed in Russia by Stalin whose secret
police and KGB torture centres and kangaroo court judges were willingly complicit in doing just
that!

The experience this couple has had will paly out ever more brutally in the coming years if we
dont fight this tooth and nail!

The TPPA: New Zealands Democracy


December 10 2015 | From: Scoop

The Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) negotiations are


concluded, and have shifted to the next phase - ratification by parliaments.
The government is spinning like a top telling us how wonderful it will be for
New Zealand. Forget the figures of $2.7 billion.
They are mere guesstimates, and carefully avoid the costs. The Government's
negotiated access to overseas dairy markets are continually trumpeted as some sort of
economic panacea. They are a delusion to anyone but those with a narrow vision that
extends no farther than the commission or the closing of the 'deal'.

Related: What Is The Real Agenda Behind John Key's Drive To Change The New Zealand
Flag: Due Authority - A Very Silent Coup?

They are a delusion because there is no way Japan or Canada want to kill their family farm
dairy operations in the interests of industrial production from New Zealand. There are very
good economic, environmental and social reasons for that. Its the same reason the French
wont kill off their rural communities by allowing factory dairy products in, and see the
dispossessed move to the slums of Lyon and vote for extremist parties in their despair.

We and the Anglo-American west are about the only countries who think industrial agriculture
is a sane approach, and I dont know why production of dross with an ever-larger factory,
rather than creation of multiple co-values. Other than State Communist collective farms, of
course. Now there's a similarity in authoritarian hierarchical thinking worth examining.
And then theyre the increased costs for medicine and the impact on our local communities and
businesses forgotten in the haste to get a dairy deal that will never happen. Other
governments are not that nave.

So whats it for, this so-called trade partnership.

Well, they are careful not to discuss that. Trade Minister Tim Grocer wont mention the fact that
only some five out of over 20 clauses deal with trade and the rest are about the investment
rights of mega-corporations including the ability to sue both our central and our local
government thats you and me.

Heres what Nobel prize economist Joseph Stiglitz says

"The reality is that this is an agreement to manage trade and investment relations and to do so on behalf
of each countrys most powerful business lobbies."

Bryan Gould argues there is a need for an agreement on managing trade. He thinks and I
agree that we should look very carefully at the activities of corporate investors across
national boundaries to ensure they comply with our laws, protect our people and avoid damage
to our environment.

The TPPA does the very opposite. It reverses our democracy. It extends their interests without
having to bother to consider ours. We the people now have to be mindful of their corporate
interests in making our laws or else.

Or else they can sue. "How dare you reduce our profits for the public good."

It happened when Australia wanted plain packaging on cigarettes. It happened when Egypt
wanted to improve labour laws.
If you believe in Adam Smiths village local enterprise with no powerful outside exploiters
coming in the make our lives worse then you should be against this deal.

This deal goes to the core of our democracy. Prof Jane Kelsey issued a challenge to our
government that needs to be addressed:

"Who gave the Prime Minister and Trade Minister the right to sacrifice our rights to affordable medicine, to
regulate foreign investment, to decide our own copyright laws, to set up new SOEs, and whatever else they
have agreed to in this secret deal and present it to us as a fait accompli?"

This is far from over. The dealmakers havent disclosed the details they should immediately
but when they do, expect outrage. The US congress may be our greatest ally.

Christchurch: The Man-Made Earthquakes - What Really


Happened, How And Why
December 5 2015 | From: GodElectric

The Rothschild cartel attacked Christchurch with their Earthquake


weaponry killing 185 people and injuring thousands over a prolonged
period.
This article is written from the perspective of someone on the ground during these
events, employed at the leading Geotechnical Engineering firm in the country, which
was responsible for the Earthquake Commission land damage assessments. I am not a
whistleblower, the people in the military have yet to come forward.

It is believed that the motive for the attack was financial greed. The Rothschild cartel used the
military industrial complex to target the Central Business District of Christchurch, the area with
the highest land values as a method of releasing stored funds.

Prior to the Christchurch Earthquake New Zealand was the least indebted nation of the
western world. Increasing Government debt driving wealth back into corrupt insurance cartels
of the City of London and other financial institutions of the world was done at the expense of
the people of New Zealand.

The motive of greed meant the destruction of the city was planned meticulously. Little thought
was given in regards to any rebuild.

Corrupt banking cartels privately bought up the most profitable part of the reconstruction
process, the project management companies like Fletchers, in advance of the Earthquake
occurring.

Earthquakes are the result of charge displacement, causing underground lightning. The
hieroglyphs describe the dynamics of Earth events, through the relationship explained
by Sekhmet and Ptah.

To understand how Earthquakes can be electrically induced, we will begin by explaining what
is commonly termed as HAARP.

Bernard Eastlunds patent is shown below adjacent to the Tutankhamen headrest, together
highlighting how the dynamics of the Earth and how it can be used to magnify energy for
natural disasters. In theory HAARP can charge the Van Allen Belts moving charge layers,
inducing charge in the rocks below.

Bernard Eastlund HAARP Patent alongside Tutankhamen Headrest.

The conclusion section of the patent contains the following text:

This invention has a phenomenal variety of possible ramifications and potential future developments...
Two new approaches to weather modification and control are suggested.

The first is for manipulation of the steering winds that control the development of mesocyclones, or the
modification of the directions of the jet streams that influence development of hurricanes. The second is a
method for influencing the electrical charge distribution in weather patterns such as meso-cyclones.

Possible defense applications include a method of accelerating electrons to MEV energies in conjunction
with the HAARP antenna. Research applications include the creation of bright and controlled guide stars
for astrophysical purposes.

Thus it can be seen that the ramifications are numerous, far-reaching, and exceedingly varied in
usefulness."

I believe a number of different types of Earthquake weapons were used on Christchurch. I


happened to be positioned at both the transmission and receiving nodes during the December
earthquake event and was subsequently mind controlled out of the country, narrowly escaping
death.

Raytheon, the company owned by Rothschild cartel bought the patents to HAARP and have
offices in Christchurch, what is more worrying is they also have bases located across the entire
Antarctic continent. This is of significant strategic importance.

John Key says: Christchurch Earthquake was man made?

Even though it is clear that New Zealand Prime Minister is a Cabal sellout / placement (or there is simply
no way he would have come to hold such an office), he was clearly fumbling or pissed off on some level
with what happened there as he twice referrs to the quake/s as man made in a thinly veiled manner:

Signals are magnified at the poles of the earth many thousands of times by the phenomenon
known as Tesla Magnifying Resonance, creating the energy required for large natural
disasters. Because of this phenomenon both Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, the U.S. Navy,
Russia and China are in a race for military supremacy at the poles.

SuperDARN is one such array that is already established at the poles of the earth under the
guise of experimentation, it does however have hidden modes of operation which have been
photographed such as at Unwin radar.

The Unwin Radar

The station is very significant from a global perspective as it completes a worldwide network of radars
focussed on auroral zones, called SuperDARN.

Southland is regarded as an ideal location for such a facility because of the southerly aspect, low radio
noise and unobstructed horizon."

(right)

The SuperDARN radar is strategically located, near the main electricity trunk line from
Manapouri power plant that serves the Aluminium smelters at the south of the island.

I was holidaying near Bluff on the Southern tip of New Zealand, 3 days before the December
2011 earthquake for my trip to Stewart Island. I saw an ionized rainbow cloud not more than
1km above the surface of the earth, I heard clicking interference on the radio and suffered
severe drowsiness. Later that day there was a wave formation of clouds going back to a
singular point in the sky as far as the eye could see.

Below is a picture of backscatter in Bluff, this was occurring during the week prior to the larger
earthquake events in Christchurch.

22 December 2012 (Approx. 24hrs to Event) - Backscatter producing Scalar Cloud Spiral near Unwin Radar -
Bluff, New Zealand
Before the larger earthquake event Russian media channel RT reported 107 dead pilot whales
being washed ashore on Stewart Island, close to where Unwin radar is located.

Because of the power transmitted into the ionosphere by these antennae interference can be
heard on all bands of the car radio, shown below.

Truthers on the internet did a great job of exposing what happened, with videos such as the
one below appearing on Youtube.

The power for these Earthquakes is not generated in the core of the Earth. The hieroglyphs
explain we are part of an Electric Universe. Gods Electricity flows through the galaxy charging
planets and stars.
SuperDARN type RADARs couple into the ionosphere through mechanics explained
by Pakhet, generating the power needed to create the larger natural disasters such as erupting
volcanoes and earthquakes.

When used in this manor the Galactic power line, or Gods Electricity is used to destroy cities
like Christchurch, New Zealand and others. God will answer this stupidity, its written into the
heart of our civilization, in our music as an Omen.
Central Business District Targeted - Christchurch, New Zealand

The earthquakes were 'pepperdusted' daily across the Canterbury plain by the military
industrial complex. Coordinates were given regardless of the lithosphere - hallmark evidence
that a HAARP weapon was being used to generate the land damage. Sometimes ruptures
would occur less than 10km below the surface of Christchurch, at extremely shallow depths.

The vertical acceleration was recorded up to 2.7G or 2.7 times the force of gravity,
extraordinarily high for the magnitude of earthquake. For a shallow rupture to develop such a
high vertical force HAARP or an Earthquake weapon is the only plausible explanation, the
physics are more akin to having a bomb detonate underground.

In the Cashmere Caverns below Christchurch, one of the worlds most accurate Ring Lasers
was installed in 2005. This extremely expensive and sensitive equipment was unmanned and
supposedly installed for the Canterbury Physics department.

It did however have a live uplink onto the internet which the military could in theory have
accessed allowing them to accurately calculate the charge state of the surrounding area.

Fox news also reported that 9 US senators, plus the head of FEMA and a "delegation"
just "happened" to be in Christchurch New Zealand and just "happened" to leave a
couple of hours before the quake struck.

They marked the anniversary of the Earthquake with an electrical weather event. Golf ball hail
rained down on the people of Christchurch.

Could the NWO be in the process of unknowingly for filling Bible prophecy -

Earthquakes in divers places."

- (Matt 24:7) (Mark 13:8) (Luke 21:11)

If you read this article, it is important you understand the site mindcontrol.se. Your thoughts are
not always your own.

Also I can recommend reading Robert Duncans Book Soul Catcher. It has a very exact
account of the methods and practices used to torture me, as a Civil Engineer who saw the truth
whilst on the ground in Christchurch. I never cried for these people that tortured me, despite
being locked up, tortured and discredited so that I lost my career.

The only times I would ever cry is when they would use my true love against me, threatening to
rape and abuse her via synthetic experiences, synthetic telepathy and Voice to Skull
technology.

I underwent years of torture like this. The most hurtful of any being ten years earlier for reasons
I do not understand, they deceived her from me using this technology soon after we fell in love
whilst studying at University.

(Note: On page 235 Robert Duncan explains that the leadership of this planet still use the
phonetic translation of the hieroglyphs to communicate, which is effectively showing their
complete ineptitude due to greed. They failed to look at even the basic principles in nature
knowing full well this is an Electric Universe.)

The hieroglyphs for Ramesses and Osiris explain that the electrical resonance of Earth and the
creation of Earthquakes is watched by the Gods or advanced life in the cosmos. Not only this
but every thought is being watched, including the entirety of the Illuminati or leadership of this
planet.

The symbol that is the Eye of Providence carries with it this very meaning, that nothing is
hidden from the cosmos. The cosmos allows free will on Earth but explains clearly that this
universe is about love.

The leadership of our planet has become stupid over time because they do not follow this path,
instead following a path of greed, blinding them from the real truth which is Gods earth. It is
true that I proved God to my mind controller, by deciphering the hieroglyphs infront of them as
they tortured me from my true love.

advanced mind control technologies which most people are not aware of. This material
is disturbing - and will sound unbelievable to some - but the reality is that these
technologies do in fact exist. Images have been added to provide context.

I am a TI that has been extensively tortured using military grade mind control since 2002. My
girlfriend was taken from me and I believe she was raped however I am unable to help her
because she refuses to speak with me. I have been placed under HAARP during its activation
for the 4th largest induced earthquake in Christchurch.

I have also been subjected to years of synthetic experiences, they use the love I have for my
girlfriend as a means to try and break me down. The worst torture I have endured has been
months of a tingling sensation under my scrotum induced my military grade mind control
weaponry with a man in my head saying "she is being penetrated by another man".

The Summary of Events

New Zealand I arrived in New Zealand August 2011, blissfully ignorant that manmade
earthquakes were a reality, having never heard of HAARP or Electric Universe theory. I
immediately started work at T&T where I was to evaluate Land damage for the Canterbury
Land Information report and EQC claims.

EQC is the New Zealand Earthquake commission that provide disaster insurance for
residential property in the event of a natural disaster. I am a fit and healthy man who
understands his body, it was apparent that working in Christchurch I would suffer from severe
exhaustion, usually in the run up to Earthquakes.

I was also speaking to the people of Christchurch, face to face contact with up to 30
Earthquake victims per day and many would describe similar symptoms. If you have ever been
in a big earthquake you will understand the immense power to behold, to comprehend how this
could be man-made took me some deliberation.

I have explained using the hieroglyphs and the theory behind Tesla Magnifying Resonance
using the Earth and how they achieve this effect in the appendix of this document. December
19th I was driving a hire car to Bluff for a Christmas vacation to Stewart Island, I approached
Bluff from the Catlins Conservatory Park on the Tokanui Gorge Road Highway and Gorge
Road Invercargill Highway.
Related: Unraveling Nikola Teslas Greatest Secret: Radiant Energy

All the occupants of the vehicle, were suffering from severe drowsiness and were asleep
despite being fully rested the previous day at Dunedin. Sometime between 2:00pm and
4:00pm close to my approach to Invercargill outside the left hand window of the vehicle was a
ionized rainbow cloud, not more than 1km above the surface of the earth.

It puzzled me and I questioned the occupants of the vehicle as to what sort of rainbow can
appear in a cloud, no one could answer the question and we did not stop to investigate
because we were all suffering from severe drowsiness. There was also clicking interference on
all bands of the car radio, including FM.

I have included a photo similar to what I saw that day below. At this point I also received a
subliminal message which I originally thought was God, saying "You will need that cloud later".
I now know that message was sent by a mind controller on this earth who has been targeting
me for some time.
That evening we stayed at a Hostel in Bluff, I looked out to the North and could see wave
formation of clouds going back as far as the eye could see, it ended at a singular point in the
sky close to where I saw the ionized rainbow earlier that day. 3 days later The 4th largest
earthquake struck Christchurch, luckily there were no deaths.

Upon further investigation on my return to Christchurch it revealed that the Unwin SuperDARN
Radar was close to the location. Part of the SuperDARN array, Super Dual Auroral Radar
Network evolved in the west during the late Cold War. Then we had a strange earthquake late
one night which was more like a Vertical bounce.

I then started scouring the internet for information about HAARP. I wrote an email to Structural
Geologist from Otago University questioning his article about the earthquakes and their
causes. 4 weeks later I was posted on an unusual job to investigate slump from extraordinary
excessive rainfall of someone's front drive in Akaroa.
It became apparent that the front drive I was investigating was the Structural Geologist I had
emailed querying manmade earthquakes 4 weeks prior. Upon meeting him in the drive we
discussed the idea, he was having great difficulty he said writing another article on the subject -
I believe secretly suspicious in what I was saying.

The mind controller was able to make people speak, I remember the specific urge to talk words
that I did not want to say when others around me were talking. I kept quiet but found the whole
experience odd, eventually working out that it was a mind controlled event. The probability of
me arriving on his front drive with the thousands of houses and EQC claims available, was
mind control - though not apparent to me at that time.

Sometime continued and I carried on investigating man-made earthquakes using HAARP.


Eventually convincing myself of the science behind such an event. It was after trying to raise
the alarm at work I came home and had an audible message in my ears in the room I was in.

This was around May-July 2012, shortly after a photo appeared on facebook with her looking
like she had fallen down some stairs, however she would not speak to me so I was unable to
understand what went on. Naturally intrigued as to what mind control was I seek answers, it
was only now that I began waking up to mind control and the fact that they could both listen to
control the thoughts in your head.

I would be surfing the internet, if I found a website on the subject it would become apparent
that it was increasingly difficult to concentrate. I put together more and more evidence, and
was positioning myself to wake up people in Christchurch. It was shortly after I tried to wake up
a work colleague, which I returned home to have an audible message.

Maori Elders Explain The Meaning Of The Hongi And The Ancient
Maori Traditions
November 25 2015 | From: WhiteWolfPack

A hongi is a traditional Mori greeting in New Zealand. It is done by


pressing one's nose and forehead (at the same time) to another person at
an encounter.
It is used at traditional meetings among Mori people and on major ceremonies and
serves a similar purpose to a formal handshake in modern western culture, and indeed a
hongi is often used in conjunction with one.

In the hongi, the ha (or breath of life), is exchanged and intermingled.

Through the exchange of this physical greeting, one is no longer considered manuhiri (visitor)
but rather tangata whenua, one of the people of the land. For the remainder of one's stay one
is obliged to share in all the duties and responsibilities of the home people. In earlier times, this
may have meant bearing arms in times of war, or tending crops, such as kumara (sweet
potato).

When Mori greet one another by pressing noses, the tradition of sharing the breath of life is
considered to have come directly from the gods.

In Mori legend, woman was created by the gods moulding her shape out of the earth. The god
Tne (meaning male) embraced the figure and breathed into her nostrils. She then sneezed
and came to life. Her name was Hineahuone (earth formed woman).

At her home just north of Tuai, a small town in the mountains of the North Island of Aotearoa
New Zealand, Dr. Rangimarie Turuki Rose Peri shares a song in her own language.

Rose welcomes people from all over the world into her home to talk about ancient Maori ways
and the importance of learning to understand and respect different peoples, cultures, traditions
and the environment around us.

Mike Butler: Gareth Morgan Wrong On Treaty


February 6 2015 | From: BreakingViews

Self-appointed guru Gareth Morgan bought into human-induced global


warming in an earlier book and his current work on the Treaty of Waitangi
shows him as a devotee of the make-it-up-as-you-go-along biculturalism
that is the defining characteristic of New Zealands race gravy train.
Also see: Gunpoint treaty threat and other lies

Promoting Are we there yet? The future of the Treaty of Waitangi, Morgan has got the
New Zealand Herald to agree to run a four-part series to promote his book, with the first
installment published today.

Comment: Since he cashed up, Gareth Morgan has become a wilful idiot in attaching
himself to half-baked topics such as man-made global warming and killing cats. This is
the latest of his fumbling attempts to find some relevance.

Also; as an astute reader pointed out: "There is one element you should be aware of,
which is in the minds of those who sold the land, no one can actually own the land, as
the land is here before us and will be here after us. We are care takers of the land, which
is a completely different mindset to the western way of thinkng and the Maori may have
been mislead in the first place. Maori only see themselves are care takers and inheritors,
you can not sell something that does not belong to you in the first place."

His conclusion that the treaty process is a success because the treaty is now taken to mean
whatever Maori leaders and the Crown, as the publics representatives, agree it means
ignores the elephant in the room by way of a racial faultline that came into existence with the
creation of the Waitangi Tribunal in 1975.

Along this faultine has widened a gap of haves and have-nots, both among citizens with some
Maori ancestry and between those of Maori ancestry and those without, with the progress of
successive full and final settlements.

The total settlement bill to March last year was $2.3-billion. The newly rich tribal corporations
pay little or no tax and two entities, Waikato-Tainui and Ngai Tahu, are entitled to repeated top-
ups as a percent of the increasing grand total.

Morgans assertion that making it up as they (Crown and claimants) go along was necessary
because "the original documents arent very useful shows that he has not looked closely at the
texts of either Te Tiriti or the official English and has ruled out the Busby February 4 draft, also
known as the Littlewood treaty.

Morgan has either forgotten or has not thought about the fact that the treaty was drafted in
English and translated into Maori, which means the meaning and intent is clear in the source
document, the original English.

That source document is quite likely the Busby February 4 draft that has only four words that
differ from Te Tiriti, one of which is the date. But any mention of that document brings a torrent
of spat tacks from grievers on the gravy train.

Because Morgan is woefully ignorant of the contents of the treaty he can make an idiotic
statement like how do we help Maoridom realise the all-important aspirations encompassed in
rangatiratanga (used in Article 2, te reo version) in modern day Aotearoa New Zealand?

If he had looked at the English source draft to see what the word rangatiratanga translated in
Article 2, he would have seen that it translated the English word possession, as in the Queen
of England confirms and guarantees to the chiefs and the tribes and to all the people of New
Zealand, the possession of their lands, dwellings and all their property.

Morgan is also wrong to buy into land-loss rhetoric when he writes justice and reparations
have been a long time coming and, as generous as they might look to non-Maori, theyre just
cents in the dollar for what Maori lost in terms of property.

No mention by Morgan of the fact that land-owner Maori sold New Zealand to the wicked white
coloniser in hundreds of transactions painstakingly recorded in Turtons deeds posted for all to
see on the New Zealand Electronic Text Centre of the Victoria University of Wellingtons
website.

New Zealand has 26.8-million hectares of land. A total 1.2-million hectares were confiscated
during the 1860s wars (much of which was returned at the time). There are approximately 1.47
million hectares of Maori land (including customary land). Therefore, Maori land owners sold
24.13-million hectares.

The staggeringly foolish policy by the fourth Labour government to look into grievances back to
1840 invited claimants to get cash-for-grievance top-ups on 19th century sale and purchase
agreements.

Once "rangatiratanga" is understood to translate "possession", Morgan's pompous assertion


about the "all-important aspirations encompassed in rangatiratanga" is reduced to the
nonsensical concept of aspirations to asserting possession over property already sold.

And if "rangatiratanga" is taken to mean "self-determination", the "rangatiratanga" aspiration


appears to describe either the state of self-reliance that every citizen who works for a living
already has or Maori separatism. If the latter is the case, is Morgan talking up Maori
separatism?

I challenge Morgan to present a coherent argument to support his contention that "because the
chiefs signatures were on the te reo version, its certainly possible they didnt cede sovereignty
then".

If he had read the treaty he would know that article 1 clearly states the chiefs of the
Confederation of the United Tribes and the other chiefs who have not joined the confederation,
cede to the Queen of England for ever the entire Sovereignty of their country.

Anyone who refers to the "unique bicultural character of Aotearoa New Zealand" in a sentence,
as Morgan does, has outed him or herself as a card-carrying treatyist who is looking for a seat
on the gravy train.

Even though Morgan criticises the conduct of the Waitangi Tribunal I don't hold much hope for
his proposal for a different course.

Why Treaty-Based Constitution 'A Disaster for New Zealand'


November 22 2012| From: BenjaminFulford

A very interesting report and exchange if ideas with respect to New Zealand; worth a
read.

"Here is yet another case being filed against the cabal:


November 19, 2012

Dear Benjamin Fulford:

I am writing to inform you of a pending $150 Trillion US Dollar legal action between King
George Watene Tautari of the Maori and the New Zealand Government/The Crown. I am also
writing to ask for your help.
The Maori King must raise funds to pay the legal costs to bring his Case to the International
Court of Justice in The Hague.

Firstly, I will share with you the highlights of the case.

In essence, this starts in 1760, when King George 111 of England and King Waitaheke Tautari
of the Maori entered into a Private Trade Agreement. King George was bankrupt at this time
and needed help to discharge his debt.

The agreement was for the Maori to collect Kauri trees (which produce a hardwood for boat
building and fine furniture) and trade them for gold bullion. The gold bullion was to be held in
trust by the King of England and all colonial lands owned by the Maori people throughout the
world would be leased for a 99 year period by The Crown with an agreed upon 60/40 split
(60% to Maori and 40% to the English). In addition, all Commonwealth colonies had access to
the gold bullion (which was being held in Trust by the King of England), and could borrow
against it, as long as they returned it with interest in gold bullion.

In 1820, the agreement was still active, with Kauri trees continuing to be harvested and sold for
gold bullion. In the early 1820's, King Ngawaka Tautari of the Maori set up 59 Merchant
(Creditor) Banks using the interest on the gold to finance and back bank guarantee hundreds
of Wholesale/Retail (Debtor) banks in 59 countries. In 1911, King Ngawaka Tautari's successor,
using the compounding interest from the 59 Merchant banks set up a 60th Merchant/Creditor
Bank (BNZ), which was bank guaranteed by the 59 Merchant Banks.

In 1995, King George Watene Tautari succeeded his father and for the past 14 years, has been
trying to unravel what has happened to his people's wealth.

He discovered that in 1967 the accounts set up by his ancestors were being illegally accessed
and the funds being withdrawn. Furthermore, in 1992, the 1000+ accounts, which had
enormous amounts of money in them (48 zeros), were changed from grey screens to black
screens without legal authorization, and the accounts were credited to 60 individual Maori
names with 1000's of subsidiary accounts for each name.

Also, in 1992, the BNZ Merchant/Creditor Bank was illegally sold and the $12 Billion in assets
were seized and distributed amongst the NZ Government, the US Government, the CIA, FBI,
and others, and came to be known as the Wine Box Enquiry. The details of all of this, are well
presented in the documents (see attached PDF file).

The historical explanation is contained in the letter of October 2, 2012, from King George
Watene Tautari to NZ Prime Minister John Key, which starts on page 27 (see attached PDF file)
.

Letters from King George of the Maori to the Prime Minister of Australia, the UN, the World
Bank, heads of Corporations that were fraudulently sold and many others are also included.
King George is seeking payment of $150 Trillion US Dollars in damages; the return of all
businesses and property sold fraudulently; and return of 60% ownership of all NZ Crown and
NZ Government Corporations to King George Watene Tautauri of Maori Nation.

The initial Notice and Cease and Desist letters are dated October 2, 2012. As there was no
legal reply, Notices of Default were sent out are dated November 13 and received on
November 15 and 16, 2012 (see attached).

In order to pay the expected legal costs in the World Court, King George Watene Tautari needs
about $100M. King George has instructed his Attorney General Neal Lyster to seek investors
willing to participate in a 50% /50% JV Private Placement Program that has been offered to
him. The King and his Attorney General believe that this is the best why to quickly generate the
required funds for his legal case.

I am no expert with regard to these high yield Programs, however I know they offer exceptional
returns. Attorney General, Neal Lyster is well versed with these types of platforms and will
detail the investment to any interested investors. Recently, Neal described to me in writing how
this Platform is managed as follows:

A Managed Buy Sell or MBS is where a Manager Sells the Investor the Bank MTN or BGs.
Then the Manager arranges the Exit Buyer for the Investor.
This happens very quickly like within an hour so the Investor is not out of Pocket at all.
The Investor must put up a minimum of 100M and he / she gets back 20% of the sale price per
tranche.
If an Investor is willing to fund a court action I would expect a fair way to do it would be 50-50
share of the profits.
1% is always shared with the Brokers split 50% Buyer side 50% sell side

Attorney General Neal Lyster is available to speak to you about this legal case and the
managed MBS in detail.

I am not a licensed agent and this is not an offering of shares or securities.

The reason I am writing this letter to you is because I was recently approached by Neal Lyster
to seek financial support to pay for expenses for the legal case. I originally connected with
Prince Neal about 7 years ago, when I was seeking funding for an ecological city I wanted to
build in Mexico (where I currently live, I am Canadian land developer). We ended up becoming
friends, as we share many of the same values and interests, especially in regards to the
environment. He recalled that I had worked in China over 6 years (1992-1998), with the
Chinese Electrical Utility President and other high level bureaucrats to introduce ecologically
friendly coal powered plants. He thought I may still have some contacts.

After some reflection, I realized I did not know anyone from my past who had an understanding
of global issues, and who would be motivated to assist. I realized also, that asking an Asian
person or group made sense, as any other group with ties to the UK and Commonwealth could
be in a conflict of interest.

I thought of you Ben, because I have followed your work for years and have a lot of respect for
what you do. I am especially impressed with your ability to connect the dots and I believe you
to be an honest man. I also know from your background, that you have a lot of knowledge and
experience with respect to high level financial transactions, including trades. And lastly, I
resonate with your values and goals as I have spent a big part of my life on environmental
initiatives.

As to the journalistic details of this pending legal case, to my knowledge, this has not been
reported in any news outlet of significance (it has been reported in a Maori newspaper). The
people whose names appear of the letters obviously know of the case, but from what I hear
they have taken no legal action, nor offered any defence and are likely unsure of how to
proceed. I believe Neal and King George would welcome journalistic coverage. I would ask you
to speak with Neal about what he is comfortable about revealing before you report on this $150
Trillion Claim. As you can see from the most recent Notice of Default, this letters were received
on November 15th and 16th, 2012 so this news is very current.

I suspect your emails are monitored, however what I am presenting here is not secret and it will
eventually get out.

If you can help in any way, please respond to me via return email.
I thank you in advance for anything you can do to help King George of the Maori.

Dear Mr. Burton,

First you need to understand that you are standing in a long line of creditors to a bankrupt
entity. Nonetheless, I am sure that the New Zealand government can be made to offer a plea
bargain.

However, it must be on behalf of the Maori people as a whole and not a specific king.

Is it OK if I publish your letter minus without your personal details?

Benjamin Fulford

Dear Benjamin,

Thank you for your e-mail. I agree with your observations. The Maori as a whole will benefit.

Yes you may publish my letter minus my personal data.

The Crown may be Bankrupt.... there is a lot of Gold in New Zealand that belongs to the Kings
family and the Maori people.
Some say that the Markos Gold is also hidden in NZ. There is known to be Gold in storage
under three Air Ports.

There is a greater story here if you get into the Wine Box Inquiry. The NZ, and US
Governments the CIA, FBI and others stole 12 Billion from the Kings family Bank.

If you require more details, you can speak to Attorney General Neal Lyster.
Would you like him or myself to call you?

Hello,

The Vatican P2 lodge once showed me a gold dollar bond with 33 more zeroes than a trillion
on it. I thing it was decadecillion or some such ridiculous number.

Hey, I tell you what, I can give you a googleplex of Benjamin dollars if you let me have the
rights to all your property.
What do you say?

Talk is cheap and promising the sky in exchange for something real is what these people have
been doing for years.

Of course it is fraud.

Why Treaty-Based Constitution 'A Disaster for New Zealand'


October 31 2012| From: TheNationalBusinessReview
A leading academic says it would be a disaster to adopt a written constitution incorporating the
Treaty of Waitangi, something the Maori Party demands.

Canadian James Allan, who taught law in New Zealand for many years and is now the Garrick
professor of law at the University of Queensland, says he would run a mile from entrenching
or incorporating the Treaty into any such instrument.

No one knows what it means when applied to any specific issue, so all you will be buying are
the views of the top judges instead of your own, the voters.

Thats not a trade I would ever make, Prof Allan says in a paper he has just written for the
New Zealand Centre for Political Research.
The Treaty has little content in its few short paragraphs and talk of its principles inherently
involves a lot of stuffing it full of latter day content that no one at the time imagined or
intended.

And if, as is overwhelmingly likely, the top New Zealand judges adopt the same sort of living
tree interpretive approach that we see today in Canada, Europe, and among most or many of
the top judges in the US and Australia, then there is absolutely no predicting in advance what
may be imposed on Kiwis some time down the road.

Remember, the words can stay exactly the same but their imputed meaning can change and
alter as the top judges see fit.
