Those Fluoridation Lies

Fluoridation: the End Game begins!

This post from garymoller.com is from 2019 … interesting what has transpired since then. Fourteen councils ordered by those ‘protecting’ us to fluoridate their town supplies. Better to allow those who want it to purchase it. EWR


Please take a few minutes to watch this video that appeared on TVNZ last night.

(Author disclosure: I have damaged teeth – dental fluorosis – due to excess fluoride during childhood. I guess that means I’m biased).

This news item is an appalling piece of journalism. Shame on Hillary, Jeremy and their team. Let me explain why.

First of of all, here is the JAMA-published study. Please take a few minutes to read it and take note of the references and perhaps read some of them.

This is a robust study that has been published in one of the most prestigious medical journals in the world. It can not be dismissed as lightly as TVNZ’s experts have done. There are at least 50 earlier studies that support the findings of this latest study. The Bashash Study is one of these. Please read it then continue to read what I’m writing here.

NZ: At a Christchurch City Council hosted “meet the candidates” meeting, vaccinated candidates were asked to stand up!

Posted recently @ Facebook, commentary included.

“A Christchurch city council hosted “meet the candidates” meeting in the lead up to the local body elections. They literally made the candidates stand up if they were vaccinated and alienated those who were not. This is simply unacceptable and disgusting.

The Christchurch City Council is literally trying to dissuade people from voting for unvaccinated candidates who do not support the woke agenda. This is not impartiality and nor is it legal for the council to tamper with elections and intervene with bias. The reaction of the locals attending the meeting is heart warming. The Christchurch City Council should be publicly shamed for their behaviour. share this video to all you know. We cannot let this be swept under the carpet.”


Note this is not new behaviour, from my own personal observations of councils in NZ. It’s become the new normal where the democratic process has gone right out the door. Meetings that appear controlled (subtly controlled by the Delphi technique in this case not so subtly) Councils it would seem, have become a law unto themselves. They are the Trojan horse for the UN Agenda 21 / 2030 agenda. There appears to be in NZ now an all out effort to dampen the efforts of those who are seeking election for Councils, who do not represent the government narrative. A government that presents itself as democratic.

In Wellington, Mayoral candidate Barbara McKenzie has encountered a similar environment of coercion and lack of ethics, quote:

“Two meetings I have attended here in Wellington asked “Do you have any association, or affiliation, with any organisation or group whose intent is to make NZ ungovernable?”. First time was at Island Bay (my very first meeting ….) and came from the residents association itself. When I answered “no” I was jeered at by the Green rentacrowd. Second time I said something like “yes, me and Tariana Turia” and funnily enough, no jeering …
One meeting did the “if you’re vaccinated, stand up” thing. Another asked the same, yes or no. So I was able to answer that I’d been vaccinated for all sorts but given Pfizer’s dreadful record for fraud and injury I wouldn’t buy a toothbrush from them.
Two candidates are in the habit of introducing themselves with “I’m such and such and fully vaccinated”.

The person asking the vaccinated to stand at the Christchurch public meeting was allegedly John Sellwood, a Christchurch communications professional.

Clearly the rights of the unvaccinated to choose are not respected in NZ. Neither is their privacy. Unbelievable!

NZ & FURTHER PROPOSED SNA LAND GRABS: 1500 West Coast property owners recently received letters in the mail, out of the blue, stating that their properties have been zoned for takeover by state control with restrictions taking immediate legal effect

Must read article on topic: SNAs (Significant Natural Areas) and what they are really about


This statement was posted at facebook by Groundswell NZ

State takeover of private land accelerates – Statement by Groundswell NZ

Anyone that owns, leases, or manages property or land in New Zealand, both urban and rural, should be very concerned about the latest developments on the West Coast. That is the message from Groundswell NZ, after over 1500 West Coast property owners received letters in the mail, out of the blue, stating that their properties had been zoned for takeover by state control and that restrictions would take immediate legal effect. There was no consultation with affected property owners and no compensation for loss of use or drop in property value. Property owners have been left in a state of shock and angry at the lack of respect and fair process.

This takeover of private land came about after the four West Coast councils released a combined district plan last week, called Te Tai o Poutini. The zonings include sites of significance to Maori, historic areas, outstanding natural landscapes, and significant natural areas (SNAs). Both urban and rural residents are impacted.

In taking this draconian action, the councils have now turned anything that has cultural, historic, or natural value into a liability. Would you want any of these features on your property if it would make you vulnerable to losing the use of your land and the resulting drop in the value of your property?

This state takeover of private land is accelerating throughout New Zealand, as local councils are being forced by Government directive to enforce unworkable regulations. The raft of ill-conceived regulations coming out of Wellington is causing considerable stress and anxiety for the thousands of people caught up by the legislation. This is the main reason Groundswell NZ started campaigning.

Groundswell NZ are calling for the West Coast councils to immediately withdraw the Te Tai o Poutini plan and to support their communities in lobbying the Government for workable legislation that focuses on achieving positive environmental outcomes, while working with and respecting the rights of people and communities.

Note from EWR: Peter Williams touched on this topic on Magic Talk Radio (before he unexpectedly left his position there). He raised the logical questions folk are asking as the above statement indicates. However asking questions of government has swiftly become a big no-no. Only one source of truth allowed. See our previous articles on topic here with a link to the Northland mapping of SNAs for your perusal. For your own region go to your own council website. The second article cites protests in Northland where similar letters had been sent. Last I heard they council had backed up on it. Something to watch carefully and clearly kicking up has had results. Links to the articles below:

Significant Natural Areas (SNAs): How NZ Cities Are Implementing Agenda 21 and the American Wildlands Project

SNAs (Significant Natural Areas) and what they are really about

The second article also cites Barbara McKenzie’s excellent research on topic. It features at her site titled Sto Vouno.

A final note, land grabs by governments are not new. As most indigenous folk know. It has been a reality of their existence for a very long time. Here in NZ, century before last, indigenous who did not want to sell their lands were deemed ‘rebels’ (via a government Act) and their lands were confiscated. Thereby NZ Māori lost no less than 6 million acres. That was just via confiscations. Government employed other means also. Those histories are generally little known unfortunately. Hence when told about them folk commonly won’t believe them. A source of much division and angst. I personally have heard more than one first hand example.

Ironically (or should that be strategically?) the rationale for this robbery is Agenda 21/30 speak … ‘biodiversity’ and ‘areas of significance to Māori’. Not all of us are fooled by the hypocrisy we’ve seen for more than three decades now. The professions of sustainability on council websites are belied by the widespread pollution (& cover up) that is still going on. Since the inception of Agenda 21 our waterways are more polluted, homelessness up, poverty up, unemployment up, debt up, and on it goes. (See our Local Government Watch pages, main menu).

Significant Natural Areas (SNAs): How NZ Cities Are Implementing Agenda 21 and the American Wildlands Project

The SNAs is a topic currently of great concern I’m noticing on social media. Read & learn if you’ve not heard of it. I saved a link to an online map of Northland recently, indicating proposed SNAs there. It is land grabbing under the guise of biodiversity (UN Agenda 21/30, that topic everyone’s been calling conspiracy for years). The header image is of proposed SNAs in Northland. This article however focuses more upon cities and what is planned. For deeper insights into Agenda 21/30 read Rosa Koire’s Behind the Green Mask, it is available online.

From stovouno.org

The American Wildlands Project, now termed the Wildlands Network, proposes the designation of 50% of the United States as core wilderness areas with little or no human use, connected by corridors of little or no human use, and surrounded by buffer zones of highly regulated use.  Exposure of the Wildlands Project was responsible for the United States not ratifying the UN’s Convention on Biological Diversity in 1994.

The Wildlands project is associated with Agenda 21, which New Zealand endorsed at the Rio Earth Summit in 1992, and which is the text for the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, and ongoing programmes which support these policies.

Wellington and other New Zealand cities are implementing an urban version of the Wildlands Project.

In September of this year, suburban homeowners in Wellington were startled to receive notification that a smaller or greater part of their suburban property was to be incorporated into something called ‘Significant Natural Areas’ (SNAs) or ‘Backyard Taonga’.  This clearly has implication for property rights and values, however this was glossed over in the accompanying letter.

The mystery of Tekapo’s disappearing lupins: Who killed the social media star?

They’ve destroyed the iconic lupins at NZ’s Lake Tekapo! (stuff article below) And there’s a lot of passing the buck going on with it. The sprayers of environmental poisons tend to do this, hiding under the radar while spraying with impunity, saying little if anything to the public, as appears to be the case here. Apart from this they appear to have killed the tourism. Agenda 21 has made great biodiversity promises (apart from a lot of other things) and yet as I continually note, the results don’t add up.

Remember the roadside harakeke (flax) that got sprayed to death by local council? Equally as ugly as the lupin ‘cemetery’.

Roadside flax in Orepuki, Sth Is NZ, along a popular tourist route, sprayed with herbicide by local council

Very sad on both counts, in my opinion, and in the case of lupins, the destruction of such an iconic spot. The lupins destroy the waterways apparently … from the same people who can now pepper 1080 into waterways with impunity. In the flax debacle it was sprayed in wet weather allowing it into waterways, against the manufacturer’s instructions.

Post update: an observer commenting at Fb says: “Same at the Bealy Bridge at Arthurs Pass…” by DoC apparently?

On topic, see our glyphosate & 1080 pages for more info on the hidden environmental dangers of these widely used poison ‘treatments’.(see other waterways related posts here). EWR

OPINION: It’s one of New Zealand’s most iconic shots: Lake Tekapo, the mountains and a bright glow of purple. You probably know what purple I’m talking about. Yes, the “L” word – “lupins”.

Mackenzie Country is known around the world for its lupins; before Covid-19 Lake Tekapo would often have traffic jams around lupin hotspots.

* New pull-over areas part of upgrade to State highways in Mackenzie
* Should a money-shot of Tekapo lupins have won an international competition?
* Department of Conservation says lupins should be controlled, not farmed

The Department of Conservation says the weed has spread to riverbeds, where it poses a risk to native ecosystems. And DOC has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on pest control.

On the other hand, it is cheap publicity. There are literally hundreds of thousands of pictures on Instagram that have provided, over the years, countless dollars worth of publicity. Lupin season in Tekapo (before the borders were closed) is big money.

All this brings me to my visit to Tekapo last week. My mouth literally dropped open when I passed the “purple peninsula” that juts out into Lake Tekapo. A year ago, almost to the day, I was here among hundreds, who were eagerly filling their camera rolls with purple weeds. But today, it was bare. Not a lupin or tourist in sight.

A call for independent review of Agenda 30 – a foreign program that is being sorted to be implemented in NZ without proper consultation

This is a first as far as I can see. Nobody has managed to speak to this stealth infiltration on a mainstream news platform since it all began. This agenda is already in our councils under the guise of or aka ‘sustainable development’. EWR

An interview with Billy Te Kahika from teaomaori.news
(Play video at the link)

The need for an independent assessment of the fast-tracking of numerous legislations in parliament is seen as crucial.  It’s the focus and subject of regular online presentations by Billy Te Kahika Junior with a following now growing to tens of thousands.

There is a consistent campaign to bring in a United Nations programme called Agenda 21 and Agenda 30.

Billy TK Junior is seeing the Agenda (30) being adhered to by stealth through legislation being fast-tracked through parliament.

“What this Agenda 30 programme is, is a complete challenge to our Kiwiana. It’s a complete challenge to the Treaty of Waitangi, it’s a complete challenge to Māori as tāngata whenua with inherent cultural practices and cultural rights to exercise those cultural practices,” says Billy TK Junior (Ngāti Pāhauwera, Ngāti Maniapoto).

Billy is especially concerned at aspects of the COVID-19 Response Bill, the Food Amendment Bill, the NZ Bill of Rights Amendment Bill and the Asia Pacific Economic Co-operation Bill.

“We need to question it because it’s likely going to violate the few things we take for granted as Māori right now which is being able to go into our kawakawa forest and make an oil or a paste or tea.  Is that going to be prevented by things like this?  So these are the types of issues that aren’t explained to us that we have no oversight into and across and we need to be very concerned.”

Currently, over 70,000 people have viewed Billy’s online presentations which began two weeks ago with interest now on his most recent of presentations on Friday (29 May 2020).

Junior says, “Agenda 30 is a foreign programme that is being sorted to be implemented in New Zealand without proper consultation.  The framework of the United Nations programme Agenda 30 means that it doesn’t necessarily have to go through a central government to be implemented.  It can be implemented through the backdoor through councils and local boroughs and that’s been fully verified by the fact that one of the first councils in Aotearoa New Zealand to sign up for this programme was Hamilton.  Hamilton City Council was one of the first to do that followed by various other regional and district councils.”

A renowned blues guitarist in his own right who has opened for some of the world top blues legends, Billy has a background in military intelligence and is using that knowledge and experience to provide the public with facts and information that he says are all before us in clear sight. 

“In the United States, it’s a very very serious problem there as well and they are well ahead in the execution and control of Agenda 30.  But why the problem with agenda 30?  Because every aspect of a humans beings life and our ability to live freely.”

It is yet to be seen whether Billy will bow to the call of many for him to stand as a political advocate.

NZ and the New World Order Pt 1: comprehensive info from a Kiwi

PLEASE NOTE: the video has already been marked by Facebook as being unavailable. I’ve reinstated the link but should you have trouble viewing, try refreshing/reloading your page (this worked for me). Failing that head to this link & watch it there, or go to Billy’s page here (scroll down the page as it is not at the top). Please do let me know if there are still any problems. Billy begins at 1 minute in.

Here is a presentation from New Zealander Billy Te Kahika on NZ’s current situation and the virus. He has served in NZ as a Policeman, a firefighter and a soldier in the NZ Army.. (he further describes his background in the intro). His research & knowledge extend to the topic we’ve covered frequently here, that of the UN’s Agenda 21 now 30. This would be the best presentation on topic from a Kiwi I’ve heard yet. He places today’s happenings with the current virus in the context of Agenda 2030 including the proposed one world government (aka new world order) and all that that entails. Well worth the listen. He is doing a follow up presentation on Sunday so I will post that also on Sunday or Monday. Or if you find him on Facebook I believe his videos are set to public. EWR

“Adversarial politics is letting us down in NZ” … some thoughts on a new form of governance (Mayor of Horowhenua DC)

NOTE: when this outgoing Mayor (his term ends Friday 18th Oct) shared his plans presented here with fellow Mayors at an LG conference media were keen to report on it however when it came to the crunch they all pulled. Mainstream is basically the long arm of the new corporate regime that is currently taking over all your community owned assets your forefathers acquired, using public private partnerships. This council announced plans to and is doing just that. As Joan Veon has told us, with those partnerships the parties with the most money are in control. Currently our council CEs are in control of what people still think are democratic. They are not. They meet for these asset ‘sales’ behind closed doors. Public excluded. “Effective growth is a partnership between council, central government and private enterprise….away from the unsettling glare of public commentary…” explains one HDC councilor regarding all of the public excluded meetings by which the assets are being sold. So here we have an ex Mayor who has devoted his term to showing that this modus operandi is simply in his opinion and the opinion of much of the NZ public just not right. Speaking truth however is not welcomed in a society that is proceeding under a corporate model where profits are more important than people. And so for now property development is the main vehicle for that and so councils are not what they once were. Corporations & companies are not democracies.

For further info see our Local Government Watch Horowhenua page. That has not been updated of late unfortunately, there is much more than is documented there. For more recent & all info see HDC in ‘categories. See also Cr Ross Campbell’s page on FB, the Mayor’s page (Michael Feyen) and Veronica Harrod’s also. Veronica is an investigative journalist who has researched quite extensively the activities of this Council.

Finally, check out the Rodney Council & the Mangawhai/Kaipara pages at the LG Govt watch section to see what has happened to other people who challenge the new system exposing corruption. It is not pretty. And so this Monday morning (14/10/19) on the heels of the local body election this particular Mayor when he went in to work to clear out his office having congratulated the new incoming Mayor, was greeted coolly by the exit committee, the CE and one of his colleagues. Not surprising given the stonewalling he has received for his entire term. His work, papers and other info had already been gone through, uninvited, packed into boxes and left outside his door. He said he was as good as told to piss off. This is the caliber of your local governance people.  EWR.

‘Consultation’ & the little known Delphi technique – promoting the illusion of democracy & helping you think you’ve had a say

Here are three items introducing the Delphi Technique, used globally in those meetings where you’re consulted, yet you still feel railroaded and haven’t been heard at all. It’s not your imagination. This is a real eye opener. It’s how their agenda (Agenda 21/30) is carried out without your knowing. Hence all the public-excluded meetings these days when they discuss the real agenda with the chosen few. If you’re not on their page you’ll be excluded. And Councils use this technique it when ‘consulting’ you. On the public stuff, making you think you’ve had input. Do read these articles, they’re not too long. The definition of consultation for LG’s own magazine tells you the decision’s already been made, then your views are sought. Excerpt below… ‘5. Engagement vs Consultation’:

Copy of consult 4.png


First article by Lyn Stuter

The Delphi Technique was originally conceived as a way to obtain the opinion of experts without necessarily bringing them together face to face. In Educating for the New World Order by Bev Eakman, the reader finds reference upon reference for the need to preserve the illusion that there is “Lay, or community, participation in the decision­making process), while in fact lay citizens are being squeezed out.”

A specialized use of this technique was developed for teachers, the “Alinsky Method” (ibid., p. 123). The setting or group is, however, immaterial the point is that people in groups tend to share a certain knowledge base and display certain identifiable characteristics (known as group dynamics). This allows for a special application of a basic technique. The “change agent” or “facilitator” goes through the motions of acting as an organizer, getting each person in the target group to elicit expression of their concerns about a program, project, or policy in question. The facilitator listens attentively, forms “task forces,” “urges everyone to make lists,” and so on. While she is doing this, the facilitator learns something about each member of the target group. He/she identifies the “leaders,” the “loud mouths,” as well as those who frequently turn sides during the argument ­ the “weak or non­committal.”

Suddenly, the amiable facilitator becomes “devil’s advocate.” He/she dons his professional agitator hat. Using the “divide and conquer” technique, he/she manipulates one group opinion against the other. This is accomplished by manipulating those who are out of step to appear “ridiculous, unknowledgeable, inarticulate, or dogmatic.” He/she wants certain members of the group to become angry, thereby forcing tensions to accelerate. The facilitator is well trained in psychological manipulation. S/He is able to predict the reactions of each group member. Individuals in opposition to the policy or program will be shut out of the group.

 

The method works. It is very effective with parents, teachers, school children, and any community group. The “targets” rarely, if ever, know that they are being manipulated. If they do suspect this is happening, they do not know how to end the process. The desired result is for group polarization, and for the facilitator to become accepted as a member of the group and group process. He/she will then throw the desired idea on the table and ask for opinions during discussion. Very soon his/her associates from the divided group begin to adopt the idea as if it were their own, and pressure the entire group to accept the proposition.

A further article on the Delphi Technique by Abert V Burns

Let’s Stop Being Manipulated

More and more, we are seeing citizens being invited to “participate” in various forms of meetings, councils, or boards to “help determine” public policy in one field or another. They are supposedly being included to get ”input” from the public to help officials make final decisions on taxes, education, community growth or whatever the particular subject matter might be.

Sounds great, doesn’t it? Unfortunately, surface appearances are often deceiving.

You, Mr. or Mrs. Citizen, decide to take part in one of these meetings.

Generally, you will find that there is already someone designated to lead or “facilitate” the meeting. Supposedly, the job of the facilitator is to be a neutral, non-directing helper to see that the meeting flows smoothly.

Actually, he or she is there for exactly the opposite reason: to see that the conclusions reached during the meeting are in accord with a plan already decided upon by those who called the meeting.

The process used to “facilitate” the meeting is called the Delphi Technique. This Delphi Technique was developed by the RAND Corporation for the U.S. Department of Defense back in the 1950s. It was originally intended for use as a psychological weapon during the cold war.

However, it was soon recognized that the steps of Delphi could be very valuable in manipulating ANY meeting toward a predetermined end.

How does the process take place? The techniques are well developed and well defined.

First, the person who will be leading the meeting, the facilitator or Change Agent must be a likable person with whom those participating in the meeting can agree or sympathize.

It is, therefore, the job of the facilitator to find a way to cause a split in the audience, to establish one or a few of the people as “bad guys” while the facilitator is perceived as the “good guy.”

Facilitators are trained to recognize potential opponents and how to make such people appear aggressive, foolish, extremist, etc. Once this is done, the facilitator establishes himself or herself as the “friend” of the rest of the audience.

The stage is now set for the rest of the agenda to take place.

At this point, the audience is generally broken up into “discussion—or ‘breakout’—groups” of seven or eight people each. Each of these groups is to be led by a subordinate facilitator.

Within each group, discussion takes place of issues, already decided upon by the leadership of the meeting. Here, too, the facilitator manipulates the discussion in the desired direction, isolating and demeaning opposing viewpoints.

And finally, a video showing how to derail the Delphi Technique

 

Published on Oct 29, 2014

On Oct 8, 2014, MTC held a meeting to discuss the Public Participation Plan for the next round of Plan Bay Area 2017. Their agenda was to force people to sit at tables. This is classic Delphi Technique to stifle dissent. When they tried to force people to tables after the general presentation, Mimi Steel, Peter Singleton, and Margaret Gordon forced the issue of having public comments first. MTC reneged under pressure and allowed public comments. The result was a major outcry from most of the participants that the meetings are rigged and that public input, even if presented, is completely ignored because MTC and ABAG already have determined the policies and are just checking the square because “public participation” is required but actual public input that does not support the plan can be ignored.

Grenfell Tower: This Is What Austerity Looks Like by William Bowles

‘The Prime Minister, Theresa May, had to [flee] the site of Grenfell Tower yesterday under police guard, BBC News, 17 June 2017

The Abandonment of a Community

Initially, I wasn’t going to write anything on this tragedy, I figured there would be plenty of analysis as to the whys and the wherefores of a building turned into a funeral pyre but I’ve yet to see the word Austerity used once, just once, in connection with this tragedy, which as usual in this world always impacts the most on working class communities, especially the poor, wherever it occurs.

Instead, we got endless hours, days of BBC hand-wringing, focusing almost exclusively on the (heroic) efforts of a devastated community, ignored and forgotten by their council and the government, with those damn cameras peering into peoples’ grief and ultimately, anger, made all the worse by the state’s total indifference to this calamity.

It took three days for the Prime Minister, Theresa May to visit the site and she had to do it under police guard! It’s only today, now four days later, that the government has finally set up some kind of command centre to deal with distraught relatives and friends of the dead, injured and missing (estimates now put the number of dead as at least 70).

If there’s anything that illustrates the murderous endgame of neoliberalism and what it does to people, this is it! But this is also Baghdad and it’s Damascus and a dozen other places around the globe getting a dose of democracy. Here it’s simple neglect powered by greed but it’s committed by the same governments, the same people who have abandoned wholesale, millions of people in their own backyards and slaughtered millions around the planet.

The truth behind your extortionate property rates/tax hikes Kiwis

“At present all around the world countless countries, states, city councils, regional councils, counties, provinces etc. are … in the process of rapidly introducing severe austerity measures on their citizens …” Dr Naomi Jacobs

Here quoted is a New Zealander, Dr Naomi Jacobs who has written a book on the topic of why rates are rising both in NZ and world wide … her book is titled ‘SOCIALIST COUNCILS, DEBT-BONDAGE AND SERFDOM’.

“I decided to write the book following my initial shock in reading the New Zealand Herald, November 3, 2012, article, ‘Kaipara rates rebellion grows,’ about the huge, extortionate property rates/tax increases being imposed by Kaipara District Council on ratepayers in New Zealand.

After an extensive study of Marxism/Socialism/Communism over many years – upon reading the article, it immediately became plain to me that what was happening to Kaipara citizens and ratepayers was not only unique to New Zealand – but was part of a global plot now taking place in all countries planned many years ago by the British Fabian Society.

Basically, I believe, Kaipara District Council is being insidiously used as a “test case …”

“All around the world, increasingly “socialist” central/local governments and councils, in collusion with the international bankers who fund them, are frantically getting deeper and deeper into unsustainable debt – or worse, are going bankrupt. Harsh austerity measures are being implemented, with drastic cuts in spending, privatization of assets and huge, onerous increases in rates and taxes on property owners  – Is all this happening just by chance – or is it a deliberate plot?  Is it a global phenomenon? Who is responsible? Where will all this eventually end? Using the small country of New Zealand in the South Pacific as an example, this account attempts to unmask exactly why all this is happening, and provides some unique answers how it may be stopped.”

INTRODUCTION:

“While this little book is largely based on events and law as it exists in New Zealand, it still has poignant ramifications for the rest of the world because city council rates and taxes are beginning to spiral out of control in almost every country, often leading to bankruptcy. The author has tried to keep the account short and sweet and as simplified as possible for the average reader in what can be a rather extensive and very complex subject. In New Zealand, the biggest local government taxes are called “rates” and these are calculated on the value of each individual property.

At present all around the world countless countries, states, city councils, regional councils, counties, provinces etc. are either in the process of rapidly introducing severe austerity measures on their citizens …”   Read More at the link below to read &/or save the pdf to your computer:

Here also is a video about how the ANZ bank illegally removed citizens’ funds from their bank accounts to pay rates:

Vinny Eastwood  “Mangawhai ratepayers and residents face massive rates rates increases, initially proposed at +1800% to raise money for a “sewerage scheme” it turns out that something much more sinister and far smellier is in the works.
No democracy, no accountability, no rights and no access to justice, worst case scenario right? Well how about the disputed rates payments that are before the high court being stolen directly from citizens bank accounts?
So much stolen that you can’t even make your next mortgage payement?
This might be one of the most important cases in recent New Zealand local government and yet the media are completely ignoring it and leaving those in this community to fight for themselves.
Luckily, people like Alan Preston and chairman of The Mangawhai Residents And Ratepayers Association Bruce Rogan are there to give light to this very important issue!”

FURTHER COMMENT:

Because of the covert nature of Agenda 21 people are not aware of its nature or its intent. It comes under the guise of ‘sustainable development’ … a most worthy cause, it would appear on the surface.  The true agenda however, is quite different. This is a timely book supplying information on how the principles of UN Agenda 21 are being applied right now. Take note also, that the removal of our sovereignty is one of the particular concerns associated with the signing of the TPPA, for this will enable corporations to sue our nation for non-compliance with their profit making privileges. This has already happened elsewhere.

For further information on Agenda 21 visit the Agenda 21 pages on the site, particularly Agenda 21 in NZ . Watch the recommended videos by those who have studied it, in particular the testimony of Ann Bressington, a former Australian politician. Also, read the articles and educate yourself on this important issue.
