Histories that of course we were not privy to when we were growing up in NZ or anywhere else. And we were told they were the ‘Maori Wars’ (like the Indian Wars etc etc etc)… strategically named by the star fomenters of wars… who were after LAND & RESOURCES.” And so down through the years the mythical versions of history persisted & continue today to create strife because folk think they are the truth. It’s long past time we heard what really happened. EWR
The Bank of New Zealand brokered finance of £3 million from the Imperial Government to escalate the New Zealand Wars. With a chronic case of ‘terrible twos’, the BNZ also bankrolled the Colonial Government’s overdraft while war was waged on Māori in the Waikato, the Bay of Plenty, Taranaki and Whanganui.

Finance to Escalate the ‘Maori Wars’
Three weeks after militarist Freemason Bro. George Grey’s ‘homecoming’ for a second term as governor, an ambitious new bank, with initial capital of £500,000 in £10 pound shares, cashed in on colonial parochialism by calling itself the Bank of New Zealand.1
The Bank of New Zealand – which was established by Royal Charter and Colonial Government legislation in 1861 – brokered finance of £3 million from the Imperial Government to escalate the New Zealand Wars.2
The First Taranaki War of 1860-1861, which had ended inconclusively, was bruising for the egos of the Taranaki settlers and the Colonial Government, whom had expected to inflict a short, sharp shock to defeat ‘the rebellious natives’ with the help of the British Royal Navy and British Army.3 The Taranaki settlers, the Colonial Government and New Zealand Freemasonry had conspired to make the coastal village of Waitara a flashpoint to trigger the Taranaki War – as The Snoopman showed in his exposé essay, “The Masonic New Zealand Wars: Freemasonry as a Secret Mechanism of Imperial Conquest During the ‘Native Troubles’”.4 The settlement of New Plymouth lacked a natural harbour, while 10 miles north, the village at Waitara had a river suitable for a port and fertile fields and gardens belonging to Te Āti Awa iwi – whom were callously targetted with what The Snoopman has termed a wedge of war strategy.
To continue to wage the escalation of the ‘Maori Wars’, the New Zealand Colonial Government needed money. The Bank of New Zealand quickly became the colonial government’s banker.
Don’t believe the lies of big industry when they tell you something is safe. Look for the proof it’s been tested. Unfortunately these behemoths are not required to test their products thoroughly in fact you are their guinea pigs. Like Monsanto (now morphed into Bayer) telling us glyphosate / Roundup are safe as dish liquid in the ’70s & in spite of all the independent research they still drag their feet & deny. DuPont in this instance after a 7 year long challenge to their fake science they were forced to withdraw the offending chemical in Teflon ware … however … not to be defeated they’ve produced another chemical, like its predecessor not fully tested & on it goes. These giants are like slippery two headed snakes, they will get you one way or another. Profits matter, you don’t. Watch also The Corporation doco. An expose of the lies we are fed. And as to the big ‘C’, MD Samuel Epstein wrote a book in the 1970s identifying the causes of cancer (The Politics of Cancer), ignored of course by big industry, and the medical industry, they prefer to have you think it’s genetic & above all mysterious ‘but they’re still working on it’ and asking for your donations to help them. It’s been a very long time & still no answers? Meanwhile the cancer industry is big business, each year (in the US) generating over $200 billion in revenue. All around it’s a win win for them, so long as you remain in the dark. EWR
Poison The World – The Chemistry Of A Cover-Up Documentary / Documentaries 2018 THE DEVIL WE KNOW (English Subs) This HD documentary details DuPont’s alleged decades-long cover-up of the potential harm caused by chemicals used to make popular Teflon products The Devil We Know is a 2018 investigative documentary film by director Stephanie Soechtig regarding allegations of health hazards from Teflon, and the DuPont corporation’s potential responsibility. It includes footage of public hearings, news reports and corporate ads, along with input from scientists and activists. The film premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. Citizens in West Virginia battle a powerful corporation after learning that it has consciously been dumping a toxic chemical into the local water supply. Their investigation unearths that this chemical is actually found in the blood of 99.7% Americans.
From NZ’s ‘Breakfast’ program with John Campbell …
So nobody, Nats included, has done anything about this?
Eleven thousand dollars a year for a box? And your government happily subsidizes these rents to the sharks. Same way they draw the unfortunate homeless into thousands of dollars of (depressing) debt for residing in motels when that money could have been loaned towards a house.
Our recent inquiries are revealing the demolition (if you call bulldozing demolition) of state homes as we speak still. Taken out at around three or more at a time. Perfectly good homes. A post will be coming on that but folk tell me they are observing homes sitting empty for up to 18 months still since a loved one died. Also stories of people evicted for no good reason, or purportedly for the building of new homes, with none appearing up to a year later.
This is predatory, property developers’ heaven basically. Where anything goes & by some accounts you even choose which race you’d prefer in your slums. More to come. EWR
What does the housing crisis look like when you’re trapped at the bottom of the heap?
John Campbell went to a controversial caravan park in West Auckland, where people are living in barely-habitable circumstances.
See here … DoC “staff and contractors being abused, threatened and even followed and filmed” says the NZ Herald … a bit rich really when environmentalists it’s been recently revealed (myself included) have been secretly spied on. In addition a senior environmentalist was assaulted in 2018 by DoC’s security staff (thrown out but the victim came out with $24K court costs by the way) and another man was run into by a farmer on his quad bike.
Stepping back a little, it’s a time worn tactic to reframe environmentalists as terrorists who threaten the lives of these ‘innocent’ employees of our govt departments cum corporations (that operate on a for profit basis note). If you hadn’t noticed, your government, your councils & your former government departments are all corporations/companies listed on Dun & Bradstreet & the SEC in Washington. Note also that corporations & companies cannot operate democratically as the article in the link explains.
An exposé of the corporate habit of hounding environmentalists is Nicky Hager’s account of the West Coast Timberlands debacle, ‘Secrets & Lies’… summarized in the foreword by John Stauber, ed of the US investigative journal PR Watch who cites Australian academic Alex Carey:
” ‘The twentieth century has been characterised by three developments of great political importance: the growth of democracy, the growth of corporate power, and the growth of corporate propaganda as a means of protecting corporate power against democracy’. In his book, Taking the Risk Out of Democracy, he showed that it is through public relations that propaganda is best waged.”
“The story that emerges is of unscrupulous PR tactics and a casual policy of telling the public what is useful rather than what is true”. Carey writes that ‘police states do not need sophisticated propaganda because bullying, murder, torture and poverty are horribly crude but effective means of enforcing control.’ And in nations like ours however… ‘the modern propaganda industry is so invisibly pervasive and effective … the art and business of public relations is necessary to keep the rabble in line’.
There it is in a nutshell. That’s what we have here folks in the ongoing drone by mainstream media that DoC staff are at risk of danger from anti 1080 activists. Note the terminology please & the use of ‘anti’. We are pro clean & green … yes we are against poisons but the use of ‘anti’ evokes visions of rebellion & violence. It’s all in the word play. And so when the movement against poisons begins to gain any traction or shed some light on the ongoing lies, another assault is mounted by way of the corporate owned media. And so, typically one of the media outlets (all the same really) will produce a bit more spin to fool the public.
So right now DoC in its latest spin that they are under threat has been allocated $10.7 million for security. Note in the article that the monetary sum is strategically placed after the long list of alleged threats. Also strategic is the selection of the feature image and the prominent word ‘eco-terrorism’ … even though it is referring to the state funded authorities, it serves as ammunition for them. A picture is worth a thousand words.
If you believe all of that spin you need to read the evidence obtained from OIA responses by the Police late in 2018:
The news outlets are all in the same camp at the end of the day, aside from the odd true journo who knows what side their bread is buttered so to speak. Or if the journo doesn’t it’s a case of ‘down the road.’
We have slid quietly from a (reasonably more) democratic society into a corporate & increasingly fascist state (remembering here the recent over-the-top police raids going on). From a nation where people mattered, where most people had a job and most were housed and fed, to a nation that’s now in $128 billion debt to the bankers (funny that), impoverished, homeless & in despair, witness our very high suicide rate. Our former Godzone is all but gone now. Beware.
For further light on this whole matter should you still be imagining the government/corporation really cares about you, or that the media wouldn’t lie, watch The Corporation movie. A real eye opener. It is on our Corporations page. EWR
A must watch also is Poisoning Paradise, the doco made by the GrafBoys (banned from screening on NZ TV, yet a 4x international award winner). Their website is tv-wild.com. Their doco is a very comprehensive overview with the independent science to illustrate the question marks that remain over the use of this poison. There are links also on our 1080 resources page to most of the groups, pages, sites etc that will provide you with further information.
Note we don’t condone or advocate violence, & unlike those who support the use of 1080 poison we do not support cruelty to animals. Note it can take up to two days for animals to die an agonizing death from 1080. Now that is violence.
“Comvita uses Analytica Laboratories to undertake Sodium monofluoroacetate (1080) testing. Analytica are an IANZ accredited laboratory who perform a wide variety of bee product testing on behalf of the Apiculture industry.
Comvita undertook 1080 testing on a range of honey samples which were taken from honey harvested between September 2017 – March 2018 including honey from 1080 drop zones. No traces of 1080 were detected in any samples which is inline with all scientific literature which suggests the risk of contamination to bees and their products appeared to be negligible.
‘Low risk’ is a category we assign to this residue in our testing schedule, and best reflects where no verified evidence of cross contamination is known to occur. This is consistent with research we have seen elsewhere which indicated 1080 is not attractive to bees and poses no threat.”
What happened between March 2018 and June 2018? Did Analytica lose their testing equipment?! Is Comvita telling the truth?
If you still imagine a corporation or it’s representatives wouldn’t lie to you you need to watch The Corporation movie. You’ll find it if you scroll down our ‘Corporations’ page at the main menu. An excellent exposé of the way of corporations that will not only surprize you but will explain an awful lot of things that are going on today. When you’ve done that, do explore our 1080 pages at the main menu. There have been other posts about the contamination of honey by 1080.

“All in all, three teachers and four students have been battling various cancers since 2016. Two preschool-age children have been diagnosed with a malignant tumor and leukemia. Another family claims that their 22-year-old son who attended the school had a brain tumor surgically removed.”
That these are ever allowed in a school yard at all is a crime of gigantic proportions in my opinion, and let alone 5G! If 5G is so safe, ask yourself, why is it being deployed in SECRET? Quietly appearing in a streets/schools/neighbourhoods near you. Watch people & be informed & ready to oppose any technology that they cannot prove (with independent not industry research) is harmless for your health.
Sprint has shut down a 5G cell phone tower amid an outpouring of concerns over recent cancer cases. Ripon elementary school parents have long suspected that the tower is responsible for several cancer cases in students and staff. Ripon Unified School District confirmed that the tower is now turned off. Sprint will now look to relocate that 5G tower. Last March, many of these same parents accused the school district of accepting kickbacks in exchange for supporting 5G towers near the school.
All in all, three teachers and four students have been battling various cancers since 2016. Two preschool-age children have been diagnosed with a malignant tumor and leukemia. Another family claims that their 22-year-old son who attended the school had a brain tumor surgically removed.
“I think it is admirable,” Monica Ferrulli, a Ripon parent who has long fought Sprint’s 5G tower, said to the Modesto Bee. “I was actually very hopeful at first but after going to school district meetings I had lost a lot of hope. We have eliminated one factor that could cause the students to be unsafe.”

The city of Syracuse, New York is embroiled in a fight over whether or not to allow Verizon to install 5G wireless networks throughout the city. Some city officials are citing 5G health risks as a cause for concern, while others believe that 5G will put their city in a position of technological progression.
The Syracuse Common Council is currently debating Verizon’s potential 5G license approval. If approved, Verizon would install 5G networks on urban streetlights. In Rhode Island, telecommunication companies have quietly installed 5G networks on streetlights.
Verizon’s regulatory manager, Mark Coon, is fighting the notion that 5G is a risk to public health.
“Wireless technology for wireless communications transmits radio frequency signals over the airwaves, no different than your garage door opener, or a baby monitor or a Wi-Fi router in your home,” Coon said via wrvo. “5G is no different than 4G, is no different than any of the generations of wireless services, as far as that radio frequency transmission.”
“The corporate forces that have commodified the natural world for profit have also commodified human beings. We are as expendable to global corporations as the Barrier Reef or the great sequoias. These corporations and ruling elites, which have orchestrated the largest transference of wealth upward in human history, with globe’s richest 1 percent owning half the world’s wealth, kneel, and force us to kneel, before the dictates of the global marketplace. They have seized control of our governments, extinguishing democracy, corrupting law and building alliances with neofascists and authoritarians as the ruling ideology of neoliberalism is exposed as a con. They have constructed pervasive and sophisticated systems of internal security, wholesale surveillance and militarized police, along with criminalizing poverty, to crush dissent.” — Chris Hedges, Confronting the Culture of Death
End of wars? … nah … “Ardern told Patrick Gower on Three’s The Nation that North Korea is “absolutely a genuine and real threat” and New Zealand is ready to play a role if requested.””
As some of us choose to remember today our own forbears who went & died in the Rothschild wars … I recall my own late Papa saying “Wars will never end … wars make money” … yes he was one of those who were required to defend the ‘King & Country’ lie. So, not to disrespect these ones who did what they knew to be right for their day (who had no choice really) … who later, like my Papa did, found out for whose cause their mates really gave their lives away. My dear Papa is there in the header image, visiting Cassino in his 82nd year, viewing the graves of his lost mates…. and he was right …
… the war mongering continues …. all of those glitzy weapons are making even more money today … ask the Royals, they know all about that. It’s getting harder now though to gloss it all over in nationalist type rhetoric, so the corporates have been busy repackaging their morbid trade into a nicer looking ‘defense’ package.
Watch, they are now busy manufacturing new enemies.
Anzac Day tricks: from Bill Massey to Jacinda Ardern
“This year, prime minister Jacinda Ardern’s conciliatory message tops everything. It probably has William Massey turning in his grave.
“Today our thoughts turn to all veterans, their spouses and families. We particularly pay tribute to those who served in the Second World War, a generation which sadly has almost left us. As we acknowledge their service and honour their contribution to our country, we think too of our current service personnel and their wider support community.
“As we gather together this Anzac Day we recognise that there is still much division to overcome in the world today. Through our expressions of love, compassion and unity, we reaffirm our commitment to peace and freedom of faith and we move forward together in hope.”
If the ghost of Massey worries, it is needless. Jacinda Ardern’s soothing pacifist words have less substance than mist.
In the wake of US President Trump’s 2017 threat to incinerate North Korea Ardern told Patrick Gower on Three’s The Nation that North Korea is “absolutely a genuine and real threat” and New Zealand is ready to play a role if requested.”
