A NZ District Health Board initiates a one-off free meal scheme for port workers who take the covid-19 injection

From sunlive.co.nz

Quote:

“The DHB approached us [foodhouse] to see if we were willing to partner with them and I just thought it was a good way to support a small businesses like ours and to encourage those front line staff so they have the vaccine.”

“It is to show appreciation for them doing what they’re doing, because it’s not an easy decision,” she says. “There’s a lot of unknowns about it. “It’s a scary thing for them to have to do and I’m appreciative of them and their decisions.”

The BOPDHB state that the food vouchers are a demonstration of hospitality and generosity to those workers currently being vaccinated.”

“…food vouchers are a demonstration of manaakitanga,” says BOPDHB incident controller Trevor Richardson.

“As Māori it is customary that hui are followed by a kai so, for our vaccinators and many port workers who are whānau Māori, this is not an unusual practice.”

“…Vaccinated workers can grab a large seafood chowder and some fried bread.” End Quote.

EWR comment: So a local government health department (DHB) initiates a scheme to encourage covid-19 injection uptake. “A scary thing to do” admits the food house.

Scary? Why?

Because as also admitted “there’s a lot of unknowns about it” (ie it is experimental, approved for emergency use, and untested). Pfizer’s own website acknowledges the long term safety data and proof of efficacy does not yet exist.

It will likely not be insured against. (Two insurance companies have been named as not insuring … ask your insurance company if they will insure you for any possible damages.) The government has excused Pfizer from any liability.

If it is so safe, then why did they need to?

There has been a death reported of a port worker already in this particular city, two days after receiving the Pfizer injection. Whilst the experts tell us there is no proof of correlation between the jabs and the so far 1500+ deaths & thousands of injuries reported, surely, no proof of a correlation cannot be taken as proof of safety can it? Below is comment about this by a NZ vaccinologist.

I am eagerly awaiting feedback by “experts reviewing the cases”. (I did ask the esteemed vaccinologist at the post about autopsies but no reply was forthcoming).

So clearly it would appear that people are under duress at the threat of losing their jobs if they ‘don’t comply’ with their employer’s demand to get the jab?

Listen to your rights around that here as explained by NZ Lawyer Sue Grey.

Our government has continued to assure us the jab will not be mandatory.

The state of local governance today: Hear from an insider, former Horowhenua Mayor Michael Feyen speaks out

Those of you who’ve followed this site for more than a year will recall the term of former Horowhenua Mayor Michael Feyen. During his Mayoral term at the Horowhenua District Council he was, in his own words, nothing but stonewalled & neutered. (You can read some of the goings on from that council at the LG Watch pages, Horowhenua. See here also for articles on topic by journalist Veronica Harrod).

Almost a year out from ending that term, recently teaming with the NZPP, and highlighting for the public where he is coming from, he is speaking out in the first video on the state of local governance in NZ within the context of UN Agenda 2030 policies, an issue that the NZPP party is bringing to the forefront of discussion as we move toward election time. Even if you are not interested in the NZPP or any politics, have a listen and hear about how local governance operates since becoming corporatized. Michael also touches on other issues that percolate down from government (consultation, pollution, debt etc) and particularly on the corrupt state of affairs now. In the second video he speaks similarly about the DHBs. He is speaking from the unique view of an insider. Valuable information for moving forward. We are observing in this era, rapid changes and in a direction that most thinking citizens recognize is not right. We are witnessing daily the vanishing of more & more of our freedoms and particularly our democratic right to free speech. Time to turn the tide. EWR

A little NZ boy of 7 has tried to suicide twice during the lockdown & his mother is receiving no help

This is tragic. I am hearing that many folk have found this whole lockdown with their families very very difficult. Why should a lockdown prevent this mother getting help for her child? As it turns out the child had been discharged from health services without his mother being told. To make matters far worse for this little guy, his mother has cancer! Imagine what will be flying through his mind? The fear of losing his mother on top of all the health scare! EWR

from newsroom.co.nz

“Since this broke out, my son has wicked nightmares to the point he’s vomiting and shaking uncontrollably. You’ve got to put him in shower to bring him out, he’s bed wetting and soiling himself…”

For some New Zealanders, lockdown has been a nightmare – such as the mother of a suicidal child who, when she called for help, was asked if she had completed a parenting course. Bonnie Sumner  and Melanie Reid report.

In a middle-class Napier suburb on week two of the lockdown, a seven-year-old boy attempted suicide.

The following morning he tried to do it again. His mother says she called various social services for help. No one would.

Her son has ADHD and autism and is undergoing assessment for psychosis. He has been under the care of the Hawke’s Bay DHB’s Children and Adolescent Family Services (CAFS) since he was three years old – until his mother discovered two weeks ago he had been discharged from their services without her being told.

The Levin 1080 fire: Part 2 (Kapiti Independent)

A follow up-article from Kapiti Independent News on the 1080 fire in Levin. Part 1 is here.

We first reported on this event in Levin on Feb 22nd & again on March 8th. At the time it was being discussed on a Facebook 1080 forum, a man reported the health effects he had been experiencing. I did exchange words with him then, inquiring further of his experience however he stopped responding to my messages.   EnvirowatchRangitikei

Where a substantial amount of hazardous substances are stored, the Health and Safety at Work (Hazardous Substances) Regulations 2017 state that it is the responsibility of the person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU), to ensure that a full risk assessment is carried out by Fire & Emergency NZ.

Outcomes from these risk assessments include ensuring that

  • crucial signage is erected around the storage areas
  • safe drainage facilities are available to prevent contamination of waterways.

In theory, these formalised procedures are overseen by the local District Health Board’s Chief Medical Officer, who, in the event of a fire or other emergency such as an earthquake, assess the risks to nearby residents and workers from any toxic smoke and fumes and if necessary, instigate the pre-arranged evacuation plan.

Press Release following further examination of the poisoned Waikato family’s medical notes – Kathy White

From Kathy White

I’ve spent the last few weeks reading the medical notes of the Kochumman family that was poisoned through eating wild boar, and my reading has worried me. Not just because of the vomiting, the inability to speak and the violent convulsions that required the family to be strapped to their hospital beds for weeks. But because the first working diagnosis by the registrar on the day the family was admitted to hospital was “consumption of meat containing poison used for possum/rodent killing ? neurotoxin ? 1080 ? strychnine poisoning which can produce a picture of lactic acidosis, nausea, vomiting, altered mental state and convulsions …. I cannot come up with an alternative pathology for raised lactate. May need to see if the police can test the meat for neurotoxins.”

1080 is repeated in the working diagnosis over and over again by different doctors over the weeks that the family was unconscious. Blood and urine samples had been taken. The curry that had been consumed had been given to the Medical Officer of Health, so why did no one test for 1080?

Instead a botulism antitoxin was quickly administered and the media was told that it was working. Does “working” mean the patients’ condition worsened? Because it did in fact worsen in almost all respects. A doctor said one patient’s condition had been worsening for 6/7 days. His inflammatory markers were sky high, his CK (creatine kinase) reaching 5000. The ADDS system confirmed the patient’s deteriorating condition. Clearly my understanding of the “botulism antitoxin working” is different to that of the DHB. Many people, including the international Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), advised that this wasn’t likely to be botulism. Doctors kept recording 1080 poison in the working diagnosis, but 1080 tests were not done on the food, on the patients’ vomit, stomach contents, or blood.

Finally, the patients’ urine was tested for 1080, 18 days after hospitalisation. Possibly coincidentally, the 1080 tests were done a week after the DHB received an Official Information Act request asking for the toxicology results from this case. Unfortunately the Landcare Research protocol for testing 1080 in urine requires that it be tested within two days of the sample being taken, so the negative result is less than reliable. The timing of the 1080 test and its lack of compliance with the protocol was not disclosed to the media. In contrast, full botulism tests were done on the patients and on the food and these all came back negative. So did a range of other tests for substances that were far less likely than 1080.

The New Zealand government owns the factory that manufactures 1080 baits for pest control. Government agencies spread these baits aerially and DO NOT remove the poisoned carcasses that are scavenged by wild pigs. We have a duty of care to not only do pest control in a way that minimises harm to the food chain, but also to put people’s welfare first. The least we can do is test for 1080 when people are convulsing on a hospital bed and doctors agree that the symptoms indicate 1080 poisoning.

Look at the medical notes, and decide for yourself in the video called DHB coverup – Politics before patient welfare for wild boar poisoned family. https://youtu.be/j6i4pZ5RYI4

A recent interview with the poisoned Waikato family reveals more details about the ongoing DHB cover up

This latest interview is from the GrafBoys (TV Wild) revealing more from the family who were poisoned from eating wild pork, likely by all appearances from a 1080 treated area. Basically a trail of flip flops from day one, it all reeks of cover up in what looks like a scramble to exclude 1080 as a possible cause. I mean, not testing the meal for 1080 at all? Not testing the family’s urine until after the required timeline for testing has expired? This is not rocket science and it is not the first time the NZ health authorities have bungled in the field of testing for correct diagnosis. Back in 2006 a NZ medical doctor suspected 1080 poisoning as the cause of death in a young woman, and subsequently the NZ lab charged with testing her heart to confirm or rule out this possibility lost her heart.

Further comments from Waikato Regional Councillor Kathy White:

I’ve spent the last few weeks reading the medical notes of the Kochumman family that was poisoned through eating wild boar. Here are the things that have resonated with me: (1) the first working diagnosis by the registrar on the day the family was admitted to hospital was “consumption of meat containing poison used for possum/rodent killing ? neurotoxin ? 1080 ? strychnine poisoning which can produce a picture of lactic acidosis, nausea, vomiting, altered mental state and convulsions. Saying this, the differential remains wide, although we do not think this is infection … I cannot come up with an alternative pathology for raised lactate. May need to see if the police can test the meat for neurotoxins.”

If this was the working diagnosis from Day One, why did the authorities not test any of the food for 1080 poison or its metabolites? Why did they not test the patients for 1080 poisoning until 18 days later? The medical notes show doctors were waiting for a 1080 test result. And yet someone made the decision not to do these tests, or to at least delay them. Unfortunately, testing urine for 1080 18 days after hospitalisation does not fit with testing protocol and renders the test unreliable.

Why 18 days to test for 1080? Waikato DHB feeds public porkies on poisoned wild pork test results

Published on Jan 1, 2018

On Thursday the 21st of December, 2017, TV Wild released a video interview covering the wild boar botulism poisoned family story. On Friday the 22nd of December 2017, the Waikato DHB released private client information, in response, and without patient consent, stating that 1080 poison was tested for and had returned a negative result. The family spokesperson states in this video interview that the DHB lied to the public about the test results …
