Consider who is fueling the media with all the current beehive finger pointing

From William McGregor

O.M.G. – Is the media for real?!

I really am DISGUSTED with the way the media has played up the whole Metiria Turei saga – the way she wasn’t 100% honest while collecting the D.P.B…..
While it is NOT a good look (that she collected a few bucks more than she was entitled to) and she appears to be a dishonest person in among a Parliament of honest people, just how bad is their memory?!
Bill English (the Prime Minister of Aotearoa) was collecting OVER A THOUSAND DOLLARS A WEEK by renting out his private home in the Hutt, living in accommodation paid for by the people of N.Z., and NOT SAYING A BLOODY WORD until it was brought to light after years of “double-dipping”; he would have collected more in a year (almost 60k a year) than Meteria Turei – before it was uncovered.
His 2 I.C. (second in command) Paula Bennett is no better!  (And to hear her speaking “holier than thou” …. that’s got to be just as big a joke! ….)

help from media

Honestly – if THIS is the level we have stooped to in the Political Arena of Aotearoa, we are COMPLETELY STUFFED!
Ask EVERY MEMBER (regardless of their party affiliation) who hasn’t been honest, who’s hidden the truth from any Government Department (I.R.D. included) to leave – and I’d be willing to bet there wouldn’t be a single person left in the Beehive AT ALL!

And it is being fueled by the media.
So, look deeper – who is fueling the media?!

I think this is being engineered to make people MORE CONFUSED about who to vote in at the Elections later in the year, and (hopefully) stay away from the Polling Booths.

DON’T play their games!

Finally … Some Important Information to Consider Before you Vote or Don’t Vote:

What the Metiria Turei smoke screen is actually shifting your focus from

For several days we’ve been bombarded with the alleged historical misdemeanours of the Greens’ Metiria Turei. (A google search will provide you plenty of info on that). She has confessed and is apparently paying up what she owes. However, we’ve heard nary a whisper on the alleged, equally illegal activities of the new Deputy Prime Minister. What’s good for the goose is surely good for the gander don’t you think? Or is it all just a handy smoke screen at this particular point in time? Media is hammering it. Should you be in the dark on the allegations raised regarding Ms Bennett, have a listen to the interview below of a whistle blower who knew her as a young person growing up. He did try to make this public six years ago he said but was shut down. He’s being a little more strategic now. The language is graphic (a warning for sensitive ears) but the message is clear and raw…. people in glass houses shouldn’t be throwing stones. As has happened with Metiria, so also should happen with the Deputy PM. And then the PM Bill English has been found out, and in the media regarding his houses. These people should all be fully investigated where necessary, instead of focusing on one Metiria who is looking very much like the sacrificial cow right now. If nothing else with these two women, they’ve demonstrated that it is very difficult to make ends meet on a benefit.

Now I’m all for forgive and move on, however this is a political arena, and these are our ‘esteemed’ (?) leaders. They are highlighting one and hiding the other. Let’s get some balance and some fairness surely and investigate the lot not just a select one?

Important info about every PM since Muldoon – pre-election facts mainstream won’t be telling you

Thanks to Ben Vidgen for his excellent research and to Vinny Eastwood for the video presentation. Here outlined are some important facts you won’t see emphasized in mainstream media, which is why we need to support independent media. We’ve covered some of the data in various posts over the past years, and particularly of interest is the agenda that’s going down, namely Agenda 21 (now 2030) and the push of that by the globalists.

NZ Elections: Does Your Vote Really Count?

A critical analysis of New Zealand’s leaders for the last 40 years! If you believe your vote does count, ask yourself this, why has every Prime Minister since Robert Muldoon belonged to international organizations pushing for an end to national sovereignty and a UN centered world government? And why then, has every single Prime Minister sold this country’s strategic assets to foreigners, gotten us into massive debt, made huge cutbacks in nearly every public service & weakened this country’s sovereignty time after time despite promising the exact opposite to the people of New Zealand?

The illusion of choice & why the Nats (who usually don’t care about the poor) are welcoming more refugees

From William McGregor
 

Y’ know, we have an election coming up later in the year, and all I seem to hear from the die-hard Kiwis is “National has got to go; Key & his ‘cronies’ have sold us out (to overseas investors)”!
And they’d be right, but there’s a far BIGGER issue going on here, if you take the time to dig deeper! Here’s what I see; this is MY view ….

Politics in Aotearoa has always been between TWO major parties – no different than almost every country in the world; that’s just the way it has ALWAYS been.
Yes – other smaller parties have come (& gone) & they have been more of a DISTRACTION than a help; and they serve to make people feel there ARE other alternatives, but there’s not – there’s left or right, (up or down, in or out) – that’s just how it is!

Third, fourth generation Kiwis have grown tired of the same old record playing the same old song…. we went backwards & forwards – National/Labour, Labour/National and it got to a stage where Labour was looking forward to having their turn again …..

Key did some VERY SERIOUS DAMAGE ….

11027945_10155204934275468_5671425971077631228_n

Selling out to overseas investors, back-door deals – leaving faster than he came into the political arena; this WASN’T by chance; this is VERY ORCHESTRATED by very POWERFUL PEOPLE, something most can’t BEGIN to understand!

Polls (strategically held in specific areas) have been used by the media to manipulate the masses! If those polls were held in Otara (Auckland), Highbury (Palmerston North) or Aramoho (Whanganui), they would be SO DIFFERENT they wouldn’t be recognizable!

Seventy to eighty thousand immigrants (refugees) a year over the last few years – that wasn’t by chance either! THINK! Those who arrived since 2008, and have applied (& got) voting rights, WHO do you think they would vote for? – the party that brought/allowed them (& their families) here, or the other party?! Straight up …. and they’re PUSHING New Zealanders to take a minimum 50 thousand per annum; they are GUARANTEED VOTES for them (National). Who bites the hand that feeds them?! They (the NEW New Zealanders) would feel OBLIGATED to vote for National; most would see Aotearoa as “Club Med” compared to the countries they came from!

We can’t even accommodate our own, yet the “Government Depts. can’t help our new arrivals enough…. housing/benefits/medical/schooling/employment …. by chance?! – NOT ON YOUR NELLY!

Regardless of party policies, you will ALWAYS go to the ones you feel are your rescuers, and National know this; they RELY on it, and they will play it to the hilt!

And we will let them, because that’s how we roll …

Ask yourself, what do the Nats care about the homeless in NZ, about child poverty, about youth suicide? Under their terms we’ve seen those stats worsen to the point we’re the world’s worst at all of them! And so in that light the above opinion rings very true. Were they truly caring they would also be caring for their own. They’re not. As I repeat regularly, under their watch we have all these dubious stats of shame. They don’t even flinch about it. Business as usual. So the caring motive doesn’t hold water for me. And it’s not about Kiwis not caring for the needs of refugees. I’m sure most us do. The point here is, we’re deep in the mire with 42K homeless. Their doing. I have noticed, Herald’s published an article with the affirmation of no less than four other former NZ PMs on the need to welcome 500 new refugees now.  So four other riders (of the same horse) agree. Very comforting.  EnvirowatchRangitikei

 

The Crown owned Tamaki Regeneration Co. EVICTS 5 grieving children 3 wks after their mother’s death – a not uncommon occurrence we’re told

Since first publishing this, I’ve read several times in social media that this kind of eviction is not uncommon. In a recent post a woman said she has seen a family handed an eviction notice PRIOR to the grieving family’s arrangement of the tāngi of their loved one! This is about as low as one can go. This current post describes the delivery of an eviction notice … and the company has apologized since (having been caught out I suspect) however if there are more experiencing this then it clearly wasn’t a one-off blunder by rogue staff.  Bear in mind also the information that’s come to light from Auckland’s anti corruption activist Penny Bright’s info about the Nats land banking state homes in Tamaki since 2012 to make way for private mansions. If anybody reading this has been similarly evicted, please feel free to add the info (anonymously or otherwise) in comments. Stay tuned as I’ll update this as I hear more.

A young Tamaki family of five aged 12 to 25 were issued an eviction notice with only three weeks to pack up their entire household. This came just three weeks after their mother passed away in their arms following a short illness. The family had lived in their home for ten years. The letter addressed to their mother (then deceased) and hand delivered to the children by the landlord’s employees of Tamaki Housing, who declined the invitation to come in and discuss the notice, is cold hearted and to the point, covering such ‘essentials’ as, leaving the property clean and tidy and emphasizing that other tenants needed the house.

Great stuff Nats. With the devolution of your once caring Housing NZ to this corporate entity, you can really bare your sharp teeth at the bereaved and vulnerable.  Your other corporation WINZ is driving people to suicide. Quite a legacy you’re leaving us.

The appalling treatment this family has received at the hands of this company contrasts somewhat from the profile presented on their website that promises to focus on:

“… delivering an innovative tenancy management approach based on supporting successful tenancies and being responsive to social housing tenants’ needs. THA works alongside Tamaki Regeneration Company (TRC) and other partners to make a positive difference to the lives of our tenants.”

Tamaki Regeneration, Crown owned, featured recently here in an article supplied by Penny Bright, activist and independent candidate for Tamaki.

Tamaki Redevelopment Company Ltd’s Crown Shareholders Nick Smith & Bill English

B. tamaki regen 2.png

Penny outlines the history of this company and its part in what she believes is the gentrification of Tamaki by property developers. She says in effect that Tamaki Regeneration is:

“… forcing poor people – ‘State tenants’ off prime real estate to make way for private mansions for the wealthy … “

In light of what has happened with this family, this appears correct. In her article she outlines the scam regarding the two companies known as Tamaki Redevelopment Company Ltd, and Tamaki Regeneration Ltd. A must read.

You may also like to read Bryan Bruce’s take on this incident, who first drew my attention to this article. Below the RadioNZ article he posts (that featured here) several people have commented that this treatment of its tenants by Tamaki Housing is not unusual. A common occurrence apparently. They’ve since withdrawn the eviction … for now … cold comfort for these five young people who still have no guarantee they can stay.

In conclusion, all I can say is this is just about as low as any government could go. Remember they (rather the corporation/govt they work for) owns the said housing company. I figured the death of two homeless men in the cold of Auckland’s streets was bad enough … this adds further to the outright ugliness of neo-liberal economics and how it really works for the rich while screwing over the poor. Shame on you Nats.

Charges for three beggars in Napier now withdrawn – well done Napier, fighting poverty creatively

The new norm in ‘fighting poverty’ … charge beggars for asking for help.  The charges are now withdrawn but it highlights the ever growing problem NZ now has & tinkering with sticking plasters isn’t going to fix it.  This modus operandi is about as clever as the Nats who [pretend to] ‘fight homelessness’ by both land banking, and selling homes originally intended for low income Kiwis. Part of the corporate sell-out. Selling out to corporate interests over its own citizens. Why don’t they just call it what it is? See just a few of the 3K empty homes below the Nats have been land banking since 2012, meanwhile 42K are homeless & reduced to begging, sleeping in garages and sheds if they’re ‘lucky’. And in Napier, asking for money. Shame NZ. Shame. Under the Nats’ watch two men have died from exposure to the cold sleeping rough. Let’s face it Kiwis, we’re now top of the homelessness, child poverty & youth suicide stats for the developed world. Three dubious honours of which the Nats must be super proud. Their neo-liberal economic package is working. Key did say he was working for NZ, he just failed to mention which tiny percentage of.

Three beggars in Napier charged over breaking council bylaw by asking for money

From tvnz

Local councils across the country will be watching closely next month as Napier City Council has taken action over three beggars in the city asking for money.

The council has taken action charging three beggars with breaching a council bylaw that forbid them from soliciting for money without permission.

All three have pleaded not guilty to the charges.

While other councils have taken beggars to court for being disorderly or causing a public nuisance, this is the first time they have been charged with simply asking for money.

Natasha Carswell from Napier City Council explained: “We do not have a bylaw that counters begging specifically.

“What we want to address is the behaviour that is causing the issue rather than the begging itself.”

Charges now Withdrawn

newshub.co.nz

Police have dropped charges against three beggars who were charged with breaching a bylaw that forbids soliciting for money without permission.

Napier City Council’s manager of community strategies Natasha Carswell told The AM Show the bylaw had been used in the past for people busking and doing street appeals, not for begging.

She said police interpreted the bylaw “as they did”, but it isn’t how Council want it used.

NZ tops list of developed countries with most homeless – thanks National you do us proud

Well congratulations Nat government/corporation, you’ve now put us on another dubious ‘honour’ list. Most homeless? Two homeless gentlemen recently dying in the winter cold even. Highest youth suicide. Highest child poverty. Well done John Key. Well done Bill English. You do us proud. What next are we going to excel in?

Who next can you simply kick to the curb with your boot that’s looking increasingly fascist these days? Twenty billion to weapons and war, and only one to housing? Whilst you land bank our state homes, 42K people sleep in tents, garages and cars. Your monetary priorities say it all. You’ve ushered in neo-liberalism on steroids. You’ve trashed not only the people but the environment as well. And what use is any economy with neither of those?

NZ tops list of developed countries with most homeless

Social Housing Minister Amy Adams is rejecting an American University survey that puts New Zealand at the top of a list of developed countries for homelessness.

p2503enz

Yale University has released a list of developed countries ranked on the number of homeless people per capita – which has New Zealand at the top, followed by the Czech Republic and Australia.

It found about 40,000 people are either living on the street, in emergency housing, or shelter considered sub-standard.

The report does note that getting an accurate picture of homeless is challenging, because many countries define homelessness in different ways.

Ms Adams said the findings should be treated with a high degree of caution, as the survey did not have consistent comparisons from country to country.

“They’re not comparing apples with apples and to suggest that is our number of homeless is quite wrong.”

The latest ‘100% pure’ lies from the NZ corporation masquerading as a government

 

Well it must be getting very bad when mainstream media is concerned about the image of a woman drinking from our toxic (oops 100% pure) rivers. Seriously. Horowhenua has one of the top 10 worst polluted lakes in NZ, so toxic that ingesting it could potentially kill a small child or an animal. Then we can only swim in 40% of our rivers, how ever is the tourist going to discern which 40% they are? Signs up everywhere praps? Drink this but not that? Then there’s the 1080 issue (non issue according to the corporation) with the pellets landing in our drinking water. Ever join any dots about the soaring cancer stats? Isn’t one in 3 or less a bit high? Anyway, a warning to tourists, don’t believe the spin. Our esteemed authorities even dump sewage into the waterways here. Buy bottled water like you do in third world countries, just to be safe. We really are getting into third world status in my opinion with some places bringing home bottles from the water fountains.  Oh, and on the spin, NZ is not the least corrupt nation on the planet at all … sadly that is all spin as well. (See here also). Along with the not so well known fact that we are actually a corporation and not a true government.

New ‘100% Pure’ campaign shows tourist drinking river water

While concerns grow about the health of New Zealand’s waterways – including the potential for reputational damage – it has not changed the way the country presents itself to the world.

The latest “100% Pure” campaign, released last week, shows a tourist drinking water from a river, something that would be dangerous in parts of the country.

The Government-funded ad was released last week by Tourism New Zealand (TNZ), and will be broadcast around the world over the next two years.

The campaign is titled “where one journey leads to another”, and anchors on a dream-like video following two tourists tramping, diving and kayaking in various locations throughout New Zealand.

New footage inside Pike River mine revealed

from Newshub

Newshub has obtained more video of the robot inside the Pike River mine.

It shows the two mine rescue workers in an airlocked portal in the entry zone, waiting to go in, and then clearly shows them inside the tunnel itself before they send off the robot.

There’s also a photo of a letter pinned to the tunnel wall by mine rescue workers who have already been in.

“We have commenced our journey to you: this has been the first step to bring you home to your loved ones,” it reads.

“We will not rest and we will never give up. We will return kia kaha.”

Up to six intact bodies can be seen in new video footage from inside Pike River Mine, the widow of a man who died in the 2010 explosion has revealed.

“There are a number of bodies, we’re talking probably four, five, six at the moment, we’re still going through footage, but at the request of the families at this stage we’re not going to release those,” Anna Osborne told The AM Show.

“But there are definitely loved ones’ bodies fully intact.”

Ms Osborne lost her husband Milton in the disaster. She says it’s been “six-and-a-half years of lies and cover-ups”.

She says the new footage is more than enough evidence for a manned re-entry into the mine.

Thanks to the contrail.com for these links… read their post here.

“This author has studied this and other video footage of the event with international coal mining, gas and oil industry experts. All of whom conclude that the flames and smoke leaping from the top of the 110 meter ventilation shaft on the video clip CANNOT possibly be coming from burning coal at all (more than 110 meters below), or methane gas as the police and media deceptively claim. Coal and methane burns considerably cleaner with different colored flame and smoke and would not at all be in such high concentrations burning right at the top of the shaft (driven through hard rock) at such a huge intensity – irrespective of whether the main portal entrance to the access tunnel is open or not. The conclusion is that the fire on the video is a total deception and giant cover up.”

$2.3 mill for a banker’s advice on selling our State houses? See what else your Govt (corporation) has spent your tax money on Kiwis

Thanks to Phil Yorke for this well researched information. (For interest, I have added news links & images to some of the info, you can google any others for yourself).

“While this Government won’t do a thing to fix our housing crisis, (other than paying for beneficiaries to live in short term motels at a cost of $22 million in 7 months) we are blowing $53m to build a pavilion in Dubai to try and help the dairy industry whose product is currently polluting our rivers. Here is a refresh on what the National Govt thinks is more important than the citizens of New Zealand.

Ok, so over the last eight years what have John Key and the National Govt with the help of their supporters club (IE Maori Party, Act and Dunne) really done for the people of New Zealand?

I have compiled a small list researched from Newspapers and other media outlets, including Parliament TV, of what John Key and this National Govt believe are priorities over the people of New Zealand.

Ever wondered what happened to asset sale money? That’s despite Finance Minister Bill English promising in 2011 that all revenue from the sales would be put in a Future Investment Fund to pay for “schools, hospitals, roads, rail and public transport”. Money used from asset sales … one big ticket item is our membership to the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank which was funded as part of this year’s Budget and came in at a cost of $144M.
Another bank membership has also been paid for out of the fund. In 2014, the fund was used to pay $23 million for a subscription to the World Bank.
Computer programme for ministers.
Some of the cash was also splashed on the Prime Minister and Cabinet with investment into a document management project, Cabinet, which received $2.6M in 2012 and a further $1.8M in 2014 — a total of $4.4M.
Doing up Government House

In all, $500,000 was also allocated to the Prime Minister and Cabinet to be spent on a new Visitor Centre at Government House in 2012.

This is just a small part of the total failure of this National Govt in its responsibilities to the citizens of New Zealand and would be called corruption in other countries,
