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.
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.
Important information from Laura – ActionStation petition site on making a submission to improve minimum rental housing standards. These submissions close on January 27th, while lots of Kiwis are still on holiday or at the beach! How typical of our current government to table this when folks are too busy or too removed from the information to know about it and/or respond. Please consider making a submission … ActionStation has provided a form to make it easy for you. EnvirowatchRangitikei
“The government are currently taking submissions from the public on their Bill to improve minimum housing standards for rentals in New Zealand.
This is our opportunity to push for standards that would ensure everyone in New Zealand has access to a warm, dry home.
Will you make a quick submission? It will take 5 minutes.
Do you remember how last year, after a surge of people power (and sadly, tragic stories of sick and dying Kiwi kids) the government announced legislative changes were to be made to our minimum housing standards?Changes like requirements for smoke alarms and insulation in residential rental properties, among other things. 
The Bill that would enact the proposed changes has just been tabled in the House and referred to Select Committee.  What that means is that members of the public can now have a say on minimum housing standards for rentals in New Zealand by making a parliamentary submission. The catch is these submissions close on January 27th, while lots of Kiwis are still on holiday or at the beach.
We believe that’s because although the changes proposed by the government have been a very welcome first step on the path to warm, dry and affordable homes for all – The Bill doesn’t go nearly far enough, and they know it.
So we’ve tried to make it as easy as possible for you to make a submission. We’ve spoken to a variety of social justice, children’s health and sustainability experts to get their point of view, and set up an easy to use form to make it really quick and simple for you to have a say on how we can improve New Zealand’s housing for all. Will you take action once again to help improve NZ’s poor quality housing crisis?
We’ve included the expert analysis and recommendations for you to use in your submission; feel free to copy and paste the parts that are important to you, or just use our form to make your own submission. You don’t need to be an expert to have a say. Often a story from your own personal experience can be the most compelling submission of all.
Things are warming up on the TPPA front with plans by the powers that be to sign on 4th February and it’s rumoured … at the Skytower. They will be keeping that under wraps for sure. I’m just mailing out the public notices regarding events from FB who have asked folks to share. Likewise do share these notices, email to your friends, tell the neighbours. The more on board the better. There are NZ wide meetings you may consider attending if possible. For further updates here go to the TPPA news page. Do please let me know if I’ve missed anything or if there’s anything you’d like shared, either here or on FB if you’re not a member. EnvirowatchRangitikei
A blogger writes … “So as some of you may or may not be aware. Our country is about to be sold on February 4th. Informers from Chile say the signing of the TPPA will be held here @ the skytower in Auckland New Zealand. When it is signed, our basic human rights will be stripped of us! They will sell the land, our home to foreign countries, more mining, water and air rates, prohibited to grow your own organics, loom seeds will be banned, prohibited to live off grid, not allowed to feed and clothe homeless, or to help poverty, etc etc.. as if they want to decrease population and destroy our mother earth sooner..shit that’s in humane! NZ citizens are calling for a march larger than ever. If you care about your children’s future, seek out sources for more info. And take one last stand!
Even though the TPPA may commence…as Tangatawhenua, we have to live trying to prevent such events, in respect of our forefathers who dedicated their lives for our current slice of freedom. And also regarding the future of our Pepe’s…please don’t ignore this.” SOURCE

While browsing recently online for a collagen supplement … particularly a non marine one given the state of Fukushima we’re not told about by MSM (mainstream media). I’m not being alarmist here, it’s just that I would prefer to err on the side of caution these days given corporations have been lying to us for quite a few decades now. Folks with testing devices have been finding their food to be radioactive. Fukushima spews vast quantities of radioactive water into the Pacific ocean daily and has been since 2011 or thereabouts, with the Japanese people gagged from talking about it in relation to their health. Corporate lying is also evidenced by the multitude of fines they are paying these days for their misdemeanors (‘peanut’ fines they pay out of their petty cash pretty much). So, no, this is why I don’t trust their spin.
I located one product anyway that looked pretty good (I’d typed in the search box, ‘natural, organic ingredients’). The brand hailed ‘acclaimed actress Nicole Kidman’ as its global ambassador. Sounded impressive.
“…an Australian owned & operated business devoted to producing quality health supplements by using the best-sourced natural ingredients, latest scientific research and partnering with dedicated professionals in the healthcare industry.” The brand is Swisse.
The product featured “No added: Gluten, lactose, egg, yeast, salt, artificial colours and artificial flavours…” then just above that a short unassuming statement … “Contains sodium benzoate.”
Turns out sodium benzoate’s not so unassuming after all. I found an article from 2009 at healthwyze.org that tells all. Not pretty.
Here is a little quote to spark your interest:
Researchers at Southampton University noted that tests have shown sodium benzoate to lower the I.Q. by up to five points in children. Britain’s Food Standards Agency has even warned parents that sodium benzoate is a primary cause of hyperactivity in children, along with artificial colorings. However, in the U.S., there has been nothing but silence and the destruction of evidence.
“Sodium benzoate is the most effective preservative currently authorized.”
— Richard Laming, British Soft Drinks Association
Some key information on sodium benzoate:
it is produced by mixing benzoic acid with sodium hydroxide
it is a common preservative in processed foods and soft drinks
it is considerably more toxic than either processed sugar or high fructose corn syrup
It is a bona fide poison
benzene is the main ingredient of various paint stripper products, rubber cements, and spot removers, due it its highly destructive and solvent qualities
Countries throughout Europe have been pressuring the food industry to voluntarily remove sodium benzoate from products
Many have called for an absolute ban on this toxic preservative due to concerns about children’s developmental safety
U.S. Government and media have remained disturbingly silent on this additive
there have been no studies in the U.S. about the chemical’s effects upon children
Only the synthetic version has toxic effects
it is especially dangerous because it is able to destroy parts of the DNA
the amount of benzene in soft drinks increases with shelf life
it is one of the most dangerous preservatives available, but it is the cheapest (follow the money trail)
…there is more … read the article below to see just how much. This is a pertinent reminder to buy unprocessed food that’s not been stripped of all goodness and pumped full of chemicals to maintain its shelf life. Buy organic or grow your own. An excellent expose of the food additive insanity is ‘The Idiot Cycle’ documentary, viewable on Vimeo. It can also be found in one of our posts at this link.
“One of the dirty secrets of the soft drink and processed food industries is sodium benzoate. It is a benzene compound that is produced by mixing benzoic acid with sodium hydroxide. It is a common preservative in processed foods and soft drinks. It has been associated with a vast array of health problems, including all of our major epidemics. Sodium benzoate is considerably more toxic than either processed sugar or high fructose corn syrup, yet it gets very little media coverage. It is a bona fide poison. Outside of our foods, benzene is the main ingredient of Liquid Wrench, various paint stripper products, rubber cements, and spot removers, due it its highly destructive and solvent qualities. It was discontinued in rubber manufacture in the U.S. because it caused a large percentage of workers to get leukemia. …” Read more:http://healthwyze.org/reports/204-are-you-getting-enough-sodium-benzoate-in-your-diet.html

TPPA signing Auckland, 4 February
Rumours that TPPA ministers will sign the deal in NZ on 4 Feb were confirmed by Chile’s officials, although the government still says it’s not settled. Other reports confirm it will be in Auckland (as Fran O’Sullivan said back on 9 Dec), but MFAT hasn’t told people where. It’s NOT likely to be Sky City, which hosted the big meetings. This will be a small select ‘celebration’, probably somewhere with tight security.
The signing is largely symbolic but governments will try to use it as an opportunity to talk up the TPPA in the media. It will be signed by Trade Ministers (Todd McClay has replaced Tim Groser – we don’t yet know whether Groser will be there).
Auckland people will meet on Tuesday 12 January to talk about actions around the signing. The signing will be on a weekday, with Anniversary weekend before and Waitangi Day weekend after. We know people are anxious to get things moving, but please coordinate with others so that we don’t create confusion with multiple Auckland events. We will put out another Bulletin next week with more specific plans.
Other actions around Aotearoa NZ
Groups are already planning for activities leading up to 4 February. Chantelle Campbell will provide support and coordination for regional activity coordinators firstname.lastname@example.org
Lori Wallach & Jane Kelsey speaking tour 26-29 January
In the lead-up to the signing, leading US critic of the TPPA and the most knowledgeable person about what’s happening in Washington, Lori Wallach the Director of Public Citizen Global Trade Watch, will be doing a short speaking tour. Advertising will be available shortly. Lori and Jane Kelsey will speak at:
Auckland Town Hall on 26th January at 7pm
Wellington St Andrews on the Terrace on 27th (time TBA)
Christchurch on 28th at Cardboard Cathedral at 7pm
Dunedin 29th (time and venue TBA).
These events will be free, with a donation requested. A Give a Little page is being set up to support the costs of these events and ongoing campaign actions over the next few weeks and the months. In the meantime, if you have fundraising suggestions, contact Barry Coates email@example.com
‘Don’t sign’ Petition to PM to be launched tomorrow
Action Station is hosting a simple petition to the PM to tell the government not to sell us out and not to sign. That will be launched on 12th January. A separate communication will come out through email, Facebook and twitter tomorrow. Please circulate it everywhere.
Simple fact sheets with updated information on the text will be available shortly. Apologies that the current fact sheets on the website are out of date – we will let you know when the new fact sheets are posted. The updating will be part of a website update and re-vamp taking place soon. The latest information on the TPPA text is in the Key Issues paper on the website.
For people wanting to understand the details of the TPPA text, there are New Zealand specific expert peer reviewed papers now available. These cover the Process (including what happens after the signing in NZ) and Investment rules. Papers on the Treaty of Waitangi, Environment and the Economics of the TPPA will be posted shortly.
Labour Party position
Andrew Little has stated that a Labour Government would “defy the TPPA” if it conflicted with national sovereignty. He referred specifically to overseas ownership of residential property, so it is not clear whether this means that Labour would vote against the TPPA is there is a vote in Parliament. His Radio New Zealand interview is at http://www.radionz.co.nz/national/programmes/summerreport/audio/201785059/labour-says-it-will-defy-tpp
The Green Party, New Zealand First and the Maori Party have reiterated their opposition to the TPPA.
“We are dealing with a criminal undertaking at a global level … and there is an ongoing war, it is led by the United States, it may be carried out by a number of proxy countries, which are obeying orders from Washington … The global war on terrorism is a US undertaking, which is fake, it’s based on fake premises. It tells us that somehow America and the Western world are going after a fictitious enemy, the Islamic state, when in fact the Islamic state is fully supported and financed by the Western military alliance and America’s allies in the Persian Gulf. … They say Muslims are terrorists, but it just so happens that terrorists are Made in America. They’re not the product of Muslim society, and that should be abundantly clear to everyone on this floor. … The global war on terrorism is a fabrication, a big lie and a crime against humanity.” (source) (source)

Here is a video by South Canterbury Skywatch (NZ). Rainwater analyses world wide, it’s been found, have high concentrations of Aluminium, Barium, Strontium and even Titanium. Alarmingly, these high concentrations are also being found in New Zealand’s rainwater. These three elements have also been found in the fallout from weather modification programs (aka chemtrails), so they are in the air we breathe. And, as is pointed out in this video ‘we were not designed to breathe these materials’. Their presence in our water is not a natural occurrence. Soil Biologist Frances Mangels tells us there should be no heavy metals in rainwater. Mangels has been investigating the cumulative effects of these metals on animal and plant life at Mt Shasta California. In this video you will hear Mangels speak. Do pause and consider:
“… we were not designed to breathe these materials …”
Aluminum has been scientifically linked with Alzheimer’s Disease. “Aluminum has been long known to be neurotoxic, with mounting evidence that chronic exposure is a factor in many neurological diseases, including dementia, autism, and Parkinson’s disease.” Dr Mercola
And Barium? “Ingesting large amounts of barium can cause changes in heart rhythm, paralysis and possibly death.”
Aluminum Oxide Particles, Arsenic, Bacilli and Molds, Barium Salts, Barium Titanates, Cadmium, Calcium, Chromium, Desiccated Human Red Blood Cells, Ethylene Dibromide, Enterobacter Cloacal, Enterobacteriaceae, Human white Blood Cells-A (restrictor enzyme used in research labs to snip and combine DNA), Lead, Mercury, Methyl Aluminum, Mold Spores, Mycoplasma, Nano-Aluminum-Coated Fiberglass, Nitrogen Trifluoride, Known as CHAFF), Nickel, Polymer Fibers, Pseudomonas Aeruginosa, Pseudomonas Florescens, Radioactive Cesium, Radio Active Thorium, Selenium, Serratia Marcscens, Sharp Titanium Shards, Silver, Streptomyces, Stronthium, Sub-Micron Particles, (Containing Live Biological Matter), Unidentified Bacteria, Uranium, Yellow Fungal Mycotoxins
If you think geoengineering aka chemtrails are a hoax read this article by GlobalResearch.ca The practice of weather modification has been in motion for 60 odd years and is very well documented (ClimateViewer.com). Just not covered or acknowledged by mainstream media, or our governments. It is covert, however on top of all the scientific evidence now of soil and water contamination, there are also many whistleblowers who have exposed the practice.
“Once again another rain test showing contaminants of Aluminum, Barium and Strontium. These samples were taken in September and its a follow up on the samples i had tested in 2014.

Here is an insightful overview of our world histories, a video presentation by Abby Martin (SOURCE). It tellingly reveals just who is running our world. Historical overviews are particularly useful when joining dots … we can so easily get bogged down in detail that we don’t see the whole scope of events. As with the elephant analogy, we are like a person with a blindfold, trying to decipher just what the ‘beast’
is … feeling the tail, the legs, the trunk … wondering ‘what we have here’? Step back however, remove the blindfold, view the whole animal and ‘voila! An elephant.
So here, Martin reveals the ‘small’ and surprising detail about the number of military bases there are world wide and the true nature of the many military interventions we’ve witnessed … the carefully crafted ‘news’ that interpreted these world events for us (courtesy of our long time whore media) … identifying for us the ‘villains’ and the ‘heroes’ … all revealing a somewhat different story than what we thought about who is really running the show.

Further food for thought … ‘War is a Racket’ by Major General Smedley Butler
Listen to Major General Smedley Butler’s now well known speech on war, cited in Abby Martin’s video. This is a short 9 minute version. Or watch the full version (which is a full summary of his book, info below) at this link.
INFORMATION from the longer video posted on Miguel Ferreira‘s Youtube channel.
“Smedley Darlington Butler (July 30, 1881 – June 21, 1940) was a United
States Marine Corps major general, the highest rank authorized at that time, and at the time of his death the most decorated Marine in U.S. history.
During his 34-year career as a Marine, he participated in military actions in the Philippines, China, in Central America and the Caribbean during the Banana Wars, and France in World War I. Butler is well known for having later become an outspoken critic of U.S. wars and their consequences, as well as exposing the Business Plot, an alleged plan to overthrow the U.S. government.
By the end of his career, Butler had received 16 medals, five for heroism. He is one of 19 men to receive the Medal of Honor twice, one of three to be awarded both the Marine Corps Brevet Medal and the Medal of Honor, and the only Marine to be awarded the Brevet Medal and two Medals of Honor, all for separate actions.
In 1933, he became involved in a controversy known as the Business Plot, when he told a congressional committee that a group of wealthy industrialists were planning a military coup to overthrow Franklin D. Roosevelt, with Butler selected to lead a march of veterans to become dictator, similar to other Fascist regimes at that time. The individuals involved all denied the existence of a plot and the media ridiculed the allegations. A final report by a special House of Representatives Committee confirmed some of Butler’s testimony.
In 1935, Butler wrote a book entitled War Is a Racket, where he described and criticized the workings of the United States in its foreign actions and wars, such as those he was a part of, including the American corporations and other imperialist motivations behind them. After retiring from service, he became a popular activist, speaking at meetings organized by veterans, pacifists, and church groups in the 1930s.
2016 is here. And with a vengeance.
“Vengeance is mine” allegedly sayeth the lord.
You could say the same thing about Mother Nature.
Because when any creature defies the Laws of Nature, the grace and good-will of Mother Nature issues a courtesy-warning, and our insticts and intellect can pick it up loud and clear: it’s called “danger.”
And when that danger is recognized, all manner of evasive or problem-solving tactics and strategies can be devised and deployed.
But when danger is not recognized, and warnings ignored,the outcome is “written” so to speak, almost “predestined” by God and/or Nature itself:
Mother Natures final notice of terminal error.
For almost 5 years now, according to Japanese and other scientists, 300 metric tons of intensely radioactive plutonium water has been pouring relentlessly into the pacific ocean, from the THREE nuclear power plants STILL BURNING at Fukushima. In other words, to date, 529,500…
