WARNING: THIS WILL UPSET YOU… AGENDA 21 PLANNERS DISCUSS YOUR FUTURE

QUOTE: “You know, the fact of the matter is people have too much space in their houses … if we could just share our space with other family members we would reduce our housing needs right there…” 

This I find hypocritical, ironic as well, in light of a common question asked by landlords ‘how many of you will be living here?’ followed by the predictable statement … ‘you can’t bring all your family here to live’, the stereotype being that indigenous people like living together in over crowded conditions. Further on in this video they cite Asian families doing so & suddenly now it’s a great thing because it suits the liars’ agenda. Initially it was better for consumerism that we are all separate in separate households racking up purchases & inevitably debt these days because we have abandoned the old ways … and now the Agenda 21/30 agenda is for us to occupy cramped stack & pack housing in their smart cities and it’s all okay. Don’t be fooled folks, they really are not for you. They are for their own ends only. Sustainable Development aka Agenda 21 is a scam being foisted upon you by stealth. Remember the bedroom tax in the UK? They’ve hinted at it here as well with the last census asking for an indication of the number of rooms in our houses. Similarly with the remaining State Housing stock (the state asset that the corrupt corporates have flogged off for pennies on the dollar to developers, some 22% of it by the last government) … so when a person’s partner dies or a parent of children living in a state home, they swoop in with eviction notices because of ‘wasted’ space, and demand they move into smaller accommodation. At that previous link 5 grieving children are evicted prior to their mother’s taangi being arranged! And locals said this kind of occurrence was not uncommon.  Now if you think I’m being conspiratorial just watch & see how it pans out. A reader contacted me some time ago with an OIA response from the Christchurch District Council stating that they aren’t following an Agenda 21 agenda and that this is actually called Sustainable Development. I note however that Kaikoura District Council does (scroll to ‘Earthcheck’). Agenda 21 is named on their website.

At least listen & hear from the horse’s mouth here in the video what they have planned for you. Remember this is global not just California. EWR

Please make this video viral. This is the how and the why of all the Agenda 21 we see in Southern California.


If you are new to Agenda 21 now known as Agenda 2030 (the updated version) search for other articles at ‘categories’, at the left of any page. Further you can visit the Agenda 21/30 pages at the main menu, top of the page. There is a NZ sub page & an Agenda 21/30 video page. The Agenda 21 topic  has had people watching and speaking out since the ’90s when it all began with the Summit at Rio De Janeiro. It is basically the action plan for global governance aka one world government aka new world order,  hiding under a nice palatable green mask so you won’t gag at the prospect (on that note do watch Rosa Koire’s videos on YT, also on our pages). It is being slipped into countries via their councils that signed on at the initial Summit (yes NZ did, and you probably never heard about it… called ICLEI councils). Another who has cottoned on to this plan by stealth is ex Aussie Politician Anne Bressington. You can listen to her at this link. Another is Joan Veon, a very early forerunner who was close to the UN in the course of her work during the ’90s so she was right at the coal face joining dots. Her very interesting video called Public Private Partnerships is a real eye opener and describes how private corporations are acquiring your public assets right under your noses. All over NZ local Councils are doing this behind closed doors (aka public excluded meetings) … scooping up your council lands and buildings, frequently their social housing,  telling us they are ‘surplus to requirements’. Frequently sold for a song to council insiders, with whistle blowers on that ignored & not reported on by mainstream media. Educate yourself while the info is still available, remembering the digital book burning that is going on. EWR

Christchurch 2030 Agenda End-game: Global Settlement

By Martin Harris
uncensored.co.nz

We’ve been reporting the agenda for years, and now it’s formalized. Post-quake Christchurch belongs to the UN New World Order. How so?

Immediately after the 2011 quake that devastated the CBD and large portions of the Eastern suburbs, the government stepped in and purchased the “Red Zone” land. As for the rest, the government and local council nutted out responsibilities and ownerships. Taxes were raised, rates were raised, and insurance payouts dished out (and private insurance raised).

Now, the land and assets purchased and owned by The Crown has now been essentially handed to local council.

What does this actually mean?

Council releases details of draft Global Settlement

On the surface, it would appear that land and assets have gone from government ownership into the hands of “We The People”, the ratepayers of Christchurch. Wonderful, you think? Dominic Harris (no relation) thinks so:

Deal for Christchurch’s quake-damaged red zone returns power to the people

Ownership of the vast swathe of land where almost 7000 houses once stood will be transferred to the city council over the next two years.
Ownership of the vast swathe of land where almost 7000 houses once stood will be transferred to the city council over the next two years.

Handing authority over the residential red zone to the residents of Christchurch is a welcome return of power to the people, campaigners believe.

Ownership of the vast swathe of land where almost 7000 houses once stood will be transferred to the city council over the next two years as part of the final post-quake settlement between the authority and the Crown.

ARE YOU ON ‘THE LIST’?

By Carol Sawyer

Free speech is under threat in NZ.

monitoring-1305045_1280.jpgLike many of you, I was born into a New Zealand where people did not lock their doors. Now, many people have security lights, CCTV cameras, burglar alarms, and some are starting to have phones at the ready to video armed policemen coming to their homes.

I am posting up all the links I have so far on these events in the last couple of weeks. I am sure there are more than these… this will be the tip of the iceberg.

What we know:

We know that the police have a list of at least 100 people they are watching.. for what we don’t quite know. They won’t tell us. (I am sure the number will be higher than 100 though). Here is an interview about this by Sean Plunket with Stephen Franks of the Free Speech Coalition on May 8, 2019:

 

At least two people, who have committed no crime other than to own an AR15, have had 14 and 30 armed police, respectively, arrive at their door unannounced. It appears they bought these guns in the rush of people buying the guns before the legislation changed and they were banned. Gun City reported a rush on sales, so these two are two of many. They were presumably not planning to commit mass murder! There is an amnesty on these guns until September 30th. Maybe it doesn’t apply to guns bought since the massacre. This seems unclear. I have asked gun-owners and no-one seems to know.

The stories of these two people are here:

https://www.stuff.co.nz/…/police-seize-gun-collectors-firea…

https://waikanaewatch.org/…/05/10/more-mad-government-ant…/…

https://www.odt.co.nz/rural-life/rural-people/claim-police-raids-over-top?fbclid=IwAR201eoqj1M5GN0F-alVkUNpy2IoO7iDKimsfYceE7YviLUSXOJ-MxF76d0

https://envirowatchrangitikei.wordpress.com/2019/05/12/in-nzs-frenzied-quest-for-gun-seizures-a-12-yo-girl-is-still-shaken-after-30-armed-police-raided-her-familys-property-pointed-a-gun-at-her/?fbclid=IwAR1YXdEAk7DBHmhWyAZqOnVowX4Vq8_P1vgOpB81_AHF2JZHGYTLVTUSk48

As well as this, people who own no guns and have committed no crimes, have been visited by armed police – one of them by 15 armed police. The reason for one of the visits appears to have been that the man was making Youtube videos and the government didn’t like his political views.

Their stories are here:

https://www.facebook.com/napoleon.ardern/videos/121954895660812/

https://waikanaewatch.org/…/what-happens-to-those-who-spe…/…

 

 

So… some visits are about guns and some are about political views. They all seem to have one thing in common though. The people visited are being questioned by police about their political and religious beliefs… about what they think of Jacinda Ardern, about Trump, about Muslims and other religions, whether they have friends in ethnic minorities, and the like.

***************************************************

On May 10, 2019, I spoke to Travis Mills, Private Secretary ( Police ), about this matter. He told me, and I quote:

“It is highly unlikely that police would be questioning people’s political preferences. Who you vote for is not a matter for NZ Police.”

Therefore if this has happened, you need to lay a complaint with the Independent Police Conduct Authority ( IPCA). Phone 0800-503-728, or fill in an online complaint form at www.ipca.govt.nz

*************************************************

The NZ Police do need to tell us what The List is about, and what “misdemeanours” will cause you to end up on The List.
Anti-1080 people, including myself, have already been spied on by government agents. Here is the story that broke on the Spy Files, March 10, 2019 :

https://www.radionz.co.nz/…/doc-s-chats-with-thompson-and-c…

Presumably at least some Anti-1080 people are on The List, as well as Anti-vaccine people, and people who would like us to be One nation/ One people (that is now called “hate speech” by Justice Minister Andrew Little). In fact anyone who speaks out against government policies or Jacinda Ardern had better watch out.

The only thing George Orwell got wrong was the date!

Door-to-door gun confiscations have already begun in New Zealand; home visits by armed law enforcement personnel

As I wrote this, I heard from the Kapiti region that two people have recently been visited by NZ law enforcement personnel in bullet proof vests carrying guns and wanting names of ‘right wing extremists’ they knew.  The following article is from NaturalNews.com which hails as some will know, from the US. News about the event in Christchurch on March 15th is now of course global with much discussion & dissection (& censorship) going on regarding the whys and wherefores.  The result of it all has been a change to the gun laws in this country. Interesting isn’t it that NZ spends $100 million a year on the five eyes spy program to protect its citizens. It doesn’t appear to be working does it? Indeed it’s been environmentalists who’ve been spied on instead. People who just want clean non poisoned waterways, clean food sources, free from contamination by toxic substances … conservation of all resources. It’s they who have been treated like criminals. All the while a real criminal has flown right under their radar. While they twiddle their thumbs? Seems like it. And submissions from the public on the proposed gun control were heard this week gone over a two day period. Looks kind of done & dusted really. And DoC’s now set to poison the South Island again & environmentalists are still the criminals.  EWR


(Natural News) If you want to know what tyranny looks like in a “democracy,” turn your gaze towards New Zealand, where liberal tolerance and acceptance has been replaced by anti-gun zealotry and authoritarianism, thanks to a single act of violence by a man who wasn’t even born on the island.

Following Brenton Tarrant’s terrorist attack on a pair of mosques earlier this month, the New Zealand prime minister, Jacinda Ardern, and her government wasted no time in declaring that an entire class of firearms that were previously legal to own were suddenly illegal to own.

“Assault” weapons of the type used by Tarrant during his attack have no place in a civil society, you see, even if 99.999 percent of them are owned by law-abiding people and used responsibly.

As such, they must all be confiscated because getting rid of them will also stop future acts of violence and terrorism. Or so New Zealanders have been told.

But what if the act of getting rid of these guns actually causes more violence and death?

The Truth About Guns is reporting that, according to the country’s biggest firearms forum, Kiwi cops are now going door-to-door to gun owners’ places of business, their homes, and even gun ranges “in an attempt to gather information and get gun owners to relinquish their firearms.”

Pay attention, Americans — because even if you don’t own a gun, these are tactics tyrannical Left-wing Democrats will employ to force us all to live a certain way if they are ever empowered enough.

According to screenshots of the firearms forum, one gun owner is already dead.

One poster noted:

Got suggested I pop this up but whilst at work this morning, I hear a voice ask for me by name. I turn around and there’s 2 police officers.

Needless to say workmates were shocked too [sic] see me taken into a room for a chat and these guys were quite nice about it but wanted to know what [guns] my partner and I have.

Police were tipped off

The poster went on to note that a gun safe in their residence was “installed and floor plated as per the recommendations (So stored legally in an odd stock of luck),” and that they hadn’t used any of their guns because they’re “not allowed” at the moment.

“I didn’t put any paperwork or forms in yet so was a little shocked to see [the police] come out of nowhere. Anyone else get this yet?” the poster noted.

Ex arms control officer says gun licensing procedures not followed for Christchurch shooting accused

Note: I suspect the authorities were busy at the time chasing NZ environmentalists. EWR


From tvnz

A former head of gun licensing claims the man charged with the Christchurch mosque shootings wasn’t interviewed in his home and his references came from online chatroom acquaintances. 

Guns and gun ownership have dominated discussion since 50 people were killed and another 50 injured at two Christchurch mosques last Friday – one of the big questions being, “How did this happen?”

One ex-cop and arms control officer, Joe Green, says he’s got a source alleging gun licensing procedures weren’t properly followed.

“I would sooner not disclose exactly who that person is, but who I think is a highly reliable informant,” Mr Green told 1 NEWS,

The informant’s damning information claims the alleged gunman’s application wasn’t lodged in Dunedin where he lived, but filed in Waikato.

The source also says no relatives were interviewed and that authorities instead talked to two referees the accused allegedly met in a chatroom, and there are now doubts over whether a home visit and security inspection took place.

“Visiting a person’s house enables you see what their lifestyle is like. You might see a little bit of the stuff they get up to,” Mr Green said.

This afternoon, Police Commissioner Mike Bush said the vetting process behind how the alleged gunman got a license is under major review.

“That’s a very important phase of our investigation. We’re working through everything we know about the person who is charged with this horrendous offence,” he said.

But almost a week after the attack, Mr Bush couldn’t answer key questions, including whether the Dunedin-based suspect applied in Waikato.

“We’ll be working through every one of those suggestions so that when we answer you we can definitively, having known all the facts,” he said.

Mr Bush couldn’t say whether the accused used online acquaintances as referees.

“We’ll be working through that as a phase of the inquiry. When I have all the answers, definitively, I will share them.”

Nor could the Police Commissioner say whether a face-to-face interview was done.

“That’s part of what we’re working through.”

Mr Green said: “You’re looking for a needle in a haystack with firearms licensing. You’re looking for that one person in a thousand who’s going to go bad.”

Pressure is mounting on police now for answers – and soon.

Why are mainstream media outlets trying to censor footage of the Christchurch gun massacre? – the NZ govt’s response to the shooting is raising even more red flags than the shooting itself

“Government’s response to the shooting is raising even more red flags than the shooting itself” (NaturalNews.com)

The nworeport.me site comments “There’s a raging battle going on to scrub all video footage of the New Zealand mass shooting from the web, and leading the charge are the usual social media suspects: Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and the like. But why, exactly, don’t these platforms want people to see the actual evidence of what supposedly occurred down under at the two Muslim mosques where 49 worshipers are said to have been murdered in cold blood?

It would seem as though mainstream media outlets want the public to simply believe some written narrative without being allowed to actually see and interpret, with their own eyes, the event itself as it allegedly took place – the apparent intent being to control what the public believes, regardless of whether or not it’s true.

According to CNN Business, as relayed by Zero Hedge, Big Tech is currently engaged in a “struggle to deal with (the) New Zealand shooting video.” What this language actually means is that the major media platforms really don’t want people to see the video in question, and are actively trying to suppress the truth about what really took place behind all the media propaganda. ”

Further comment is made:

“In the above video footage [at the link which note can’t be seen in NZ anyway] which we were able to archive on Brighteon servers to prevent it from being scrubbed, you’ll notice that the first-person shooter angle more closely resembles a video game, as opposed to a real-life shooting. In one scene, you can even see bodies of the victims piled up before the shooter even fires his weapon.

Perhaps this is the reason why the mainstream media is trying to censor the footage – because it blows some major holes in the official narrative.” Read more at this link.

Even NaturalNews.com has  weighed in in a similar vein:

 “The live stream video of the shootings in Christchurch has been classified by the Chief Censor’s Office as objectionable,” reports Radio NZ. “Police said anyone in possession of the video of the shootings, or found to be distributing it, could face imprisonment.”

This means, essentially, that linking to content the government doesn’t like is now a crime in New Zealand…

Government’s response to the shooting is raising even more red flags than the shooting itself”.

I personally viewed the footage spoken of when it first appeared albeit briefly on social media before it was taken down. I can certainly  affirm that what is said there is true. Another viewer who watched it several times (cited below) describes accurately the  many more anomalies also present. (The two videoed interviews  in a previous post also describe these same issues in great detail).

https://www.veteranstoday.com/2019/03/16/new-zealand-the-video-warning-do-not-watch-this-is-sickening/#

“I have watched this video…closely. many times

The streets were empty of people, apart from the two guys walking by and the guy in black trousers and a white shirt who directed him to go right at the bottom of the drive..

The shooter had three guns in the passenger well and three in the boot… why didn’t he use the ones in the front passenger well?

Where did the passenger go?

There were two Muslims ‘outside’ the mosque, and one (woman in black) doing something in the back of a lemon/green car in the carpark… but they were left alive? He began ‘shooting’ at people inside the mosque at 1.30.

Friday prayers are 12 noon and last one hour, so the mosque should have been empty, because the men had to get back to work.

Also Muslim men normally wear white or their best clothes for Friday prayers, but many of the victims appear to be wearing work clothes. It is tradition to keep the mosque spotless and not bring any dirt from outside. Hence they remove shoes and wash before prayers..

It is fard (obligatory duty) for men to attend Friday prayers, but not for a ‘slave’ a woman child or a sick person. And they use their own prayer mats.. but there were NONE in this video.

He shot two men going in to the mosque one of whom was wearing shoes and they fell INTO the mosque, but there was only one man wearing a blue sweater and shoes as he passed him. The other one crawled up the passage and was shot. But there was no blood and no bullet wounds…And despite one man being shot point blank in the face, his head did not explode or bleed. Then when the shooter came out first time, one man who had originally crawled up the passage was now facing out, right arm behind his back left arm up, and the guy in the blue jumper had been moved to one side and still no blood.

The shooter then goes into the road and begins shooting at nothing, up and then down the road. Cars passing by but it appears didn’t think to ring the Police? Goes back to the car where he left the boot open for any passer by to see the guns inside? Throws the used gun on the ground and picks up an identical gun from the boot and picks up what looks like a red petrol cannister.. Surely he could just have had a pocket full of magazines to replace as one was used?

9.52 someone still doing something in the back of the lemon/green car? Continues on past the car park to another drive where cars are parked but no people and shoots indiscriminately. No holes in anything.. Says ”It doesn’t look like it’s a bird today boys.” Goes back into the mosque where blood is now pouring from the two in the foyer of the mosque. Goes into the prayer room and begins shooting at the already ‘dead’ bodies, only three/four of whom are bleeding? When it should have been one massive pool of blood. He then goes to the ‘dead’ bodies in the left corner and shoots them all again, point blank but no holes or blood?’ Then leaves the mosque where the body facing out has changed position and now has both arms up as if he’s been lying on them. Shooter then begins shooting at someone fleeing in the garden , which then turns out to be a woman, who is laid at the bottom of the drive where his car is, calling ”help me”, so he shoots her twice and then three more times, this looks genuine.. He gets into the car and then appears to drive over her, but the car doesn’t jolt like it would over an obstacle. He looks through his mirror and adjusts his sat nav and says to the guy in the back, ”that girl’s dead” and scoffs.

Driving down the road and shoots his gun three times point blank in to the wind screen but doesn’t break the glass?? then shoots the side window, which does?

Chats to guy in the back ”Still time for the fuel” ”I left a magazine back there in the fire fight???” ;;shit happens.” Police sirens sound, but here is no acknowledgement from either men in the car. Shooter says. ”They were all scared, I got the men first because the women weren’t in yet”

”Remember lads, it’s subscribe to beautify.”

I know why this video is being hidden… It does not stand up to fine scrutiny.

From the very start, It did not ring true and felt like it was being filmed as part of a video game….

And the prestitute media rhetoric IMO is designed to create fear.

– There was another shooting outside Christchurch Hospital and multiple bombs were attached to two cars belonging to the suspects near the mosque.  – The explosives were quickly disarmed. The Gunman’s rampage began when he got into his car wearing military style body armour and a helmet saying ‘let’s get this party started’.

He then drove to the mosque listening to folk music and military tunes before parking in an alley around the corner.-

How in God’s name does anyone know this unless they were there.. or they wrote the scene?????

Video of police arresting the New Zealand shooter who had multiple guns??

Comment cited here: https://www.thevinnyeastwoodshow.com/show-archives/the-underwear-bomber-whistle-blower-kurt-haskell>

Easy to see why the video is banned with very stiff penalties for violation isn’t it? 

Please note, saying that this is a false flag event, is not implying there were no deaths, as the interviews explain. What is being said is that the video shown to the public is likely not a real & true record of how it played out (we are led to believe it is head cam footage) … ie not the real footage of events, rather a mixture of real plus possibly rehearsal or other footage. To understand this a must watch are the two interviews with Ole Dammegard  (researcher, author & international speaker) who has examined similar events for 36 years now, predicting and even stopping some.

Fish & Game council took legal advice to ignore dead man’s wishes, leaked audit report shows

Praps you’d better think carefully when you make a bequest for you money to be used as you wish for some worthy cause when you’re gone. Or double check the wording of your will. Seems like it could be a piece of cake to overturn your wishes on how your money is spent.

From the NZ Herald

A keen fisherman left $500,000 to Fish & Game in his will for restocking rivers with salmon – but they ignored his wishes and used it for, among other things, fixing their head office.

A Fish & Game regional council took legal advice to ignore the last wishes of the keen angler, a leaked report shows.

An investigation into North Canterbury Fish & Game Council was launched earlier this year after five of its own councillors raised financial and transparency concerns and questioned how a generous bequest was being spent.

A draft review of the audit’s findings, leaked to the Herald on Sunday, also calls for the appointment of an independent chair to guide the troubled council through its difficulties.

The report reveals that passionate Christchurch fisherman James Walter McIntyre left more than $500,000 to North Canterbury Fish & Game in his will.

The conditions of the bequest, seen by the Herald on Sunday, stated: “I gift – my residuary estate to Fish & Game NZ North Canterbury. Without imposing any trust, I request that a member of the NZ Salmon Angler’s Association be present when Fish & Game NZ make any decision on using the benefit received under this will and that the benefit received be used to restock the Waimakariri and Rakaia rivers with salmon.”

On March 7, 2017, the North Canterbury group received $500,000 and, on June 26, the “balance of the bequest”, a further $23,935.24.

After taking “high-level legal advice” in August last year, North Canterbury Fish & Game Council chairman Trevor Isitt advised that they were “not bound by the estate wishes”, the draft audit report states.

In March this year, $49,500 was used for improvements to the regional council’s Johns Rd head office in Christchurch.

The following month, interest on the money totalling $16,875 in two payments, was made to the Water and Wildlife Habitat Trust – a separate entity with independent trustees but which receives funding from North Canterbury Fish & Game.

First time ever a Regional Council is being challenged for giving our water away – Aotearoa Water Action – protect our water from international water miners

Project 2018-02-12 09:05:20 UTC

the challenge…

Last year Environment Canterbury (aka ECan) issued consents to two water bottling companies that allow them to bottle over 24 million litres per day of precious Canterbury aquifer water from bores in Belfast, North Christchurch.  

The consents are based on historical permits for the Silver Fern Farms works and the Kaputone Wool Scour. Those industries used only a tiny fraction of the consented water ‘take’ but the bottling companies will be using every last drop. 

The aquifer is fully allocated and ECan doesn’t understand the potential effects of the increased extraction on artesian pressures and water quality; on freshwater ecosystems; on neighbouring bores; or on the community water supply, because there have been no assessments.  Despite this they’ve bent over backwards to find a process that will enable the bottling to go ahead without public consultation.  We’ll be challenging the legality of that process.

At the time of writing this nearly 90,000 people had signed Genevieve Robinson’s petition calling for the  consent to be revoked. 

However, construction is going ahead and a new bore has been drilled.

We don’t want NZ to stop at protest when we can use the law to protect our water.  We have an opinion from a top Queen’s Counsel that we have a strong case and we’re ready to bring legal proceedings to overturn the Belfast bottling consents.  But we need your help…


Please click on a reward (to the right) to pledge.  If you have any trouble pledging please let us know so we can fix the problem.

Why were the heads of NZ’s Dept. of Conservation & Hong Kong’s Goldman Sachs touring parts of Fiordland recently in a six-helicopter entourage?

Thanks to Carol Sawyer for this information.

And this fly over, one week before Obama’s visit? What is going on? This entourage consisted solely of international bankers from all over the world it’s reported.

What were the heads of DoC and the ‘bank that rules the world’ out purveying pristine South Island sights for? And what does Goldman Sachs have to do with the conservation of NZ’s flora and fauna? As we found out last century, the predatory funding of the banking fraternity comes with conditions. Doesn’t bode well in my opinion.

Consider all this in light of the recent signing of the (un)modified TPPA ‘deal’ that benefits mostly corporations, the recent revelations around the upcoming Wanaka Air Show boasting ‘impressive’ global military representation, the imminent visit at the same time by Barack Obama and ‘right on cue’ Hillary Clinton and the mysterious events surrounding the 2011 Christchurch Quake and its parallels with Haiti, one could be forgiven for being somewhat suspicious of this company of people. Call me conspiratorial if you wish but add to that the fact it’s all a bit timely, especially with the fast & furious sale of vast swathes of South Island property including Otago to offshore wealthy folk who are supposedly escaping the apocalypse they believe is coming, and it’s difficult to believe it’s a case of ‘nothing doing here’. (Note, Donald Trump’s right hand man Peter Thiel has bought Damper Bay in Wanaka Otago. US news anchor, Matt Lauer has bought Hunter Valley Station, Otago). The common denominator for the better part of all the aforementioned is the US. And speaking of the US & its military (which go together like peas in a pod) I forgot to mention the discussions that have been under way for some time between DARPA (US military) & NZ Landcare Research on the proposed release of genetically modified insects. We are ‘favored’ for this ‘experiment’ because of our island status. Very handy all around. Hello guinea pigs.

NZ & the US military have been cosying up for quite a while now especially since our former ‘esteemed’ PM ‘Sir’ John (now managing other monies) spent a good part of his dubious ‘service’ oiling the US war machine. Having gone this far on topic I may as well mention it’s been said he likely profits from NZ’s debt and just hours after the Christchurch Quake signed away seabed exploration rights to the giant oil company Anadarko.

The info on the six helicopter entourage was posted on the no to 1080 use in NZ Facebook page by Carol Sawyer. The company of international bankers along with DoC’s Director General went flying over Fiordland, reliable word has it, on 14 March 2018, quoted here (with minor edits, go to the source to read the original):

“Six Squirrel helicopters were chartered from Alpine Helicopters, Wanaka. They only have five Squirrels so one was chartered in by them.

Apparently, Director-General of Conservation Lou Sanson, and presumably other DoC” people, “took a pile of international bankers on a Tiki Tour. I am told the Hong Kong-based head of Goldman Sachs was one of them.

They went to Fiordland – landing in the Murchison Mountains, (Takahe), Chalky Island (Kakapo) in Chalky Inlet, and Resolution Island in Dusky Sound.

I have also been told this helicopter operation would have cost at least $80,000 to hire. I thought DoC was short of money? Did the big bankers pay for this trip? A Squirrel helicopter seats the pilot and six passengers, so with six Squirrels that is at least 30 people involved.

In the evening they were seen landing at Manapouri, where they had their evening meal … at the Manapouri Hotel, before the trip back to Wanaka.”

Was Lou Sanson’s “great ‘success’ “ with “DoC’s Battle for the Birds program, and the importance of Predator Free 2050” part of the discussion?

Carol has noted the remoteness of the areas they viewed in their flight from Wanaka to Fiordland. Fiordland is very remote and the places they were going could not be reached by road. Resolution Island is in Dusky Sound, Fiordland and has no road access. Chalky Island is in Chalky Inlet, Fiordland and also has no road access.

The pertinent question is asked: “What the heck are we giving these rich international bankers in return … land? mining rights? our souls? …” I would concur on those questions and would place my bet on all of them. It’s been put to me before by some readers that that mining is the agenda for clearing off our lands with 1080 of all things living. There is more than one theory on that. I suspect it is multi-purpose. Personally I know of folk who have heard poison contractors boast they’ve upped the strength of 1080 in order to kill the deer. It’s working.  The wild lands are becoming less viable as sources of wild food given the risks now involved, witness the recent poisoning of the Putaruru family who ate wild boar (the authorities didn’t test for 1080 within the appropriate time frame) the green beehives seen recently by bee keepers and the poisoning of our waterways by DoC with impunity. And yes people appear to have been poisoned historically also but the authorities are very tight lipped about those occurrences and aren’t admitting a bar of it.

Returning to the TPPA & the military, looking at the big picture, hear Prof Jane Kelsey explain the global power play going on:
