Ihumātao | How Fletchers Collected a Waiver Card in ‘Neo-Feudal Monopoly – The Ihumātao New Zealand Edition’

More truth you won’t be finding in mainstream media … a long read on Ihumātao. EWR

From snoopman.net

In this exposé, The Snoopman reveals Fletcher Building Ltd was granted waivers that lay bare the institutional racism of the Crown, the Council and the Courts. Not only were ministerial waivers required for a crucial breach of the Overseas Investment Act to get the Ihumātao land deal approved before the conditional sale agreement time-window ended.

With official documents – some heavily redacted – a picture of collusion is shown to have taken place between the Auckland Council, the Overseas Investment Office, the Key Ministry Cabinet, the Environment Court and the Ardern Coalition Government. Across the governance system, a horrendous story emerges of avoidance to conduct a serious sustained investigation to establish why exactly the bona fide tangata whenua of Ihumātao were stonewalled in their attempts to assert customary rights, while the ‘master plan’ of transnational bank-owned Fletcher Building was fast-tracked.

The contrived ignorance posturing extends to three Māori Labour Caucus members of the Ardern Coalition Government whom knew at least as far back as September 2015 that the Ihumātao Peninsula was never Te Kawerau ā Maki iwi’s traditional ancestral lands. This means the Ardern Coalition Government enjoined itself in the contrived ignorance game of the Auckland Council, the Courts and other Crown agencies whom pretended that Te Warena Taua represented the local iwi of Ihumātao.

Fletchers Collected a Waiver Card in Neo-Feudal Monopoly game

Fletcher Building has maintained throughout the Ihumātao land dispute that every move it made was within the law. It would be more accurate to say the law had their back.

To get the Ōruarangi housing development at Ihumātao through a significant regulatory hoop, a joint waiver was required by two Key Ministry Crown Ministers in early September 2014 to over-ride breaches to the Overseas Investment Act of 2005.

This special treatment reflects the institutional racism endemic in the Crown, the Auckland Council and the Courts since all forums have overlooked the downplaying, dismissal and denigration of local iwi and hapū interests in the land – as The Snoopman showed in his exposé “Te Warena Taua – The mandated kaumātua who authored his own use-by-date?”

People Power: Fletcher Building’s plans to develop the historic Ōruarangi Block for residential housing next to the mini-volcano, Puketāpapatanga-a-Hape, at the edge of the Ōtuataua Stonefields Historic Reserve on the Ihumātao Peninsula – faltered when SOUL’s supporters converged following the 150-strong Police operation of July 23 2019 to evict 10 ‘squatters’.

The Wallace-Blackwell Family company, Gavin H Wallace Limited, owner of ‘the Wallace Block’ – as the highly contested land at Ihumātao is locally known – failed to advertise the farm land on the open market prior to sale to the transnational construction company, Fletcher Building.

The Overseas Investment Office required a waiver because the Overseas Investment Act was breached since sales of rural properties located adjacent to ‘sensitive land’ such as historic reserves are meant to be advertised for sale in the 12-month period preceding an application to approve a purchase by an overseas buyer.

Breach of Overseas Investment Act Approved: Two Crown Ministers waivered the requirement in section 16 of the Overseas Investment Act 2005, that farm land be advertised for sale on the open market in the 12 month period prior to sale to an overseas buyer.

How could 11 guns have been stolen from a NZ Police Station? Some surprising info on the state of licensing in NZ (update included)

Yes from the Police Station …. you read that right.

You can read that article from newshub at this link:

https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2019/04/manhunt-after-eleven-firearms-stolen-from-palmerston-north-police-station.html?fbclid=IwAR1jzc93VkpWkSQ4hJh3k4Ci4-Hp3QqzS0U21CgsTb2iNqS2xWXEObAnjYk

Which brings to mind the post I’ve been meaning to do for a while featuring Mike Loder’s submission with regard to gun confiscations that followed on the heels of the Christchurch incident in March. Mike is a campaigner for harsher penalties for firearm offenders. He is a keen shooter himself & wishes to protect shooting as a sport … he states that he is not pro gun, he is pro logic (here more in the interview). He would like to see firearms licensing handled by an alternative party to the police.

Quote: “A gaping hole in the Arms Act in NZ allowed an Australian man with 53 firearms convictions to obtain a gun license …”

You can listen below here. Very enlightening about, among other things, the state of gun licensing & its handling by the Police in NZ:

And further below is a video by Vinny Eastwood interviewing Mike Loder in greater depth. A very worthwhile & informative watch.

This 3 hour video in my opinion is the key testimony that will show all New Zealanders that not only are our councils corrupt, but the police, the courts, the parliament & Prime Sinister too.

Thank you Russell Malcolm for your extraordinary bravery in documenting the way all these institutions came together to f**k up your life, deprive you of your rights, your business, your money, your health and even take your home.
I spent my entire night on this (went to bed 6:50am) because I believe it is urgent that it be made available for the public to view, I just had a feeling that by me doing this, it will save your life.

I hope everyone will take the time to listen to this incredible testimony, once I’ve uploaded it to my youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/mrnewsguerilla…

it’s edge of your seat stuff that will make you cringe, yell and even cry to see.
