Since we in NZ are deemed unable to think and process for ourselves, our one source of truth is now set, it appears, to control that even further.

“We are asking a lot of questions of our government, but not receiving many answers. Has Parliament decided to ‘take the fifth? The curious lack of public dialogue, the refusal to meet protestors, and Ardern’s famous dictum that ‘the government is your only source of truth’, all point in this direction.”
As you probably know, ‘taking the fifth’ is an American expression which refers to the fifth amendment of the US constitution. When asked a question you are allowed to remain silent if answering it will incriminate yourself.
People who ‘take the fifth’ in court are generally considered by the public to be guilty even if the court cannot muster enough evidence to obtain a conviction. They may even continue to profess their innocence outside the courtroom, but they will not be believed.
We are asking a lot of questions of our government, but not receiving many answers. Has Parliament decided to ‘take the fifth?
The curious lack of public dialogue, the refusal to meet protestors, and Ardern’s famous dictum that ‘the government is your only source of truth’, all point in this direction.
I would like to ask:
“When did the New Zealand government first receive the Pfizer Adverse effects report completed on 30th April 2021?”
The Victorian government has publicly admitted that they received it early on. Our government has remained silent. Among my follow up questions:
Considering the volume of adverse events and deaths following mRNA vaccination reported by Pfizer, why did you continue to tell the New Zealand public it was completely safe?
No doubt the NewZealand government will continue to try to avoid anything like a courtroom situation where two sides engage in a formal process to uncover the truth.
Instead, their public pronouncements will continue to profess righteous indignation and innocence, whilst painting their accusers with the broad brush of ignorance.
‘TAKING THE FIFTH’ HAS IN FACT BECOME A HABIT IN OUR COUNTRY.
The Broadcasting Standards Authority, the Advertising Standards Authority, the Media Council, and the Human Rights Commission, all of whom are supposed to take an independent stance, have deferred to the government and replied to complainants that government advice on vaccine safety should be taken at face value. Are they also taking the fifth?
The ‘consultative’ processes followed by government departments and private companies in order to ‘legally’ sack their unvaccinated employees also have a familiar ring.
Long scientific submissions by employees facing the loss of their profession and livelihood, are stamped ‘considered’ but not answered. This is quite sufficient to meet government guidelines, which essentially require them to listen, but do not require them to answer.
Will companies who implemented vaccine mandates be able to continue to operate them into the future with tacit government approval? A few public comments seem to point in that direction.
Moreover, some companies are pushing ahead with mandates despite the mild nature of omicron and the failure of mRNA vaccination to stop transmission, infection, and hospitalisation.
Will they ask prospective employees to reveal their vaccination status? Why would they want to do that? Perhaps because they have had a lot of hassle from the government over mandates and they won’t want to go through anything similar in the future.
Now this is an issue with important historical roots. Over the years, employees have won rights and legislation protecting them from discrimination in the workplace. This includes personal privacy of medical records and much more.
The new Covid legislation has had a particular effect on discrimination. Employers are being encouraged to discriminate and are being protected from sanctions for doing so. Nor are they required to explain themselves. They are able to take the fifth and kiss you goodbye.
Those of us who for months have been writing to MPs, mainstream media, GPs, scientists, academics, and watchdogs, are by now well aware that we are whistling in the wind.
I am told that most MPs have their inboxes set to divert correspondence to the spam folder if it contains the words vaccine or Covid. Are they taking the fifth safe within the safe walls of the beehive?
It won’t have escaped your notice that such a system allows for the abuse of power. In common with many other western powers, our government appears determined to push ahead into the future with a programme of mRNA vaccination, whatever the human cost of adverse effects.
It apparently intends to continue to pursue policies which economically and socially disadvantage a minority of our population whilst inflicting long term health risks on the majority.
This is a government that has raised ‘refusal to engage in a dialogue’ to a modern art form. To achieve this, they are funding mainstream media who promote one sided coverage that has little relation to the scientific debates about Covid continuing in scholarly journals.
Finally how can the court of public opinion pass judgement on our government now that they have taken the fifth? As a minimum there are two changes that need to be made:
Both the vaccinated and the unvaccinated are facing an uncertain future spiralling out of our control. There is less and less point in trying to dissuade people determined to continue down the road to a biotech medical disaster—they are taking the fifth.
Good advice would be prepare for a different future. Failures in education and healthcare will need to be redressed. Narrow specialisation has left many ‘experts’ blinkered to the point of willful ignorance of the wider implications and pitfalls of their advice, even to the exclusion of their own personal health and well-being.
Institutions need to promote a broader interdisciplinary academic focus, critical thinking including deductive and inductive methods, and a wide ranging analysis of historical parallels. Organising institutions that serve people, respect science, and promote self-healthcare should be our priority.
P.S. Stuff newspaper have replied to some of you, who wrote to complain about their recent ad hominem piece about myself, that I was given a ‘right of reply’, I wasn’t. Anything approaching a dialogue is increasingly out of character in our country. New Zealand has taken the fifth.
“Yesterday’s release “New data is confirming mRNA Covid vaccine deaths” said that MoH errors undercounting the New Zealand population were due to inaccuracies in the 2018 census, in fact, they appear to be primarily due to restricting population estimates to those who have recently used government health services. My apologies.”
Thank you for your continued support.

Note an update is included below in response to queries regarding the source of the numbers of deaths, now 113 (@ 29 Aug).
Since writing this, 4 teens have now passed away following CV jabs, and several hospitalized with heart issues. More info to come on that but for partial info go here and here (@16 Sep).
All of our info on this topic can now be found at truthwatchnz.is
From NZ Lawyer, Sue Grey:
(Stay tuned for Sue’s updates … she is tackling right now the no jab no job rollout …)
“An important message…NZDSOS want to spread the word now amongst those who seem very good at opposing government narrative that we have yesterday sent a list to the government – Jacinda Ardern, Chris Hipkins, Ashley Bloomfield, Medsafe MCNZ – of the 100 confirmed post jab deaths we have collated to date so they can no longer ignore what they are lying about. We have many more deaths still to write up with 2 per day coming in on average. plus hundreds of injuries eg strokes, heart attacks, clots etc.
Please spread far and wide.… and sign & share the Doctors’ Speaking Out with Science declaration below
Note: So this is four times NZ’s original death count from covid (and those numbers were dubious at best). Nary a mention of these deaths either. Just the ongoing pledge the jab is ‘safe & effective’ and supposedly no reactions or deaths…
…for other articles on the topic of NZ deaths and injuries see this link. I have explained previously throughout the articles about the citizens’ register compiled by both the Health Forum NZ and NZ lawyer Sue Grey. The entries are well vetted and confirmed.
For further work by Sue Grey on behalf of New Zealanders regarding these health issues see these posts:
Since many are asking the source of this information consider the following. I normally include references and links to most of the information I post. In this instance you will understand that it is getting more difficult to do this when we know from public and other feedback that true figures are not being officially provided. By way of explanation please read the following article from the NZ Doctors Speaking Out with Science (NZDSOS) who have been making numbers public.
Deaf to the Deaths
“Fellow Kiwis, this is a post that we have worried we would need to write, once the evidence of death and serious injury from ‘the Pfizer’ became clear enough, and we could receive confirmation from the various sources. That time is now.” (Read more at the link).
Having read and understood that, you will appreciate what I am saying. (These 32 health professionals have been both censured and censored, and at risk of losing their licenses to practice for their stance, ie questioning the official narrative that the jab is ‘safe and effective’. I highly recommend you sign their statement and support them… they are the few who are speaking out on our behalf because they take their oath to ‘do no harm’ seriously).
So the numbers of deaths do come from reliable sources that include the NZDSOS Doctors, Lawyer Sue Grey & the Health Forum NZ. I have been placing that info into my updates on NZ deaths for some time however unless you follow my site posts you may not have picked that up. The numbers are compiled from professionally conducted interviews by The Health Forum NZ Facebook group, with folk who have made contact about the injuries and deaths they’ve experienced or observed. They are carefully vetted and interviewed so their stories are not just second hand or hearsay. At this point the register is not publicly available for various reasons, confidentiality issues being one, but I believe they are working on that.

“We are now at step 10”.
This is chilling really. We are watching it like a slow fall. Those of us awake that is. There are droves of folk however, quietly moving towards the cliff of no return and no amount of persuasion will convince them to turn back. They are the product of years of quiet indoctrination that’s told them their government really cares about them and has their best interests at heart. Meanwhile we can only watch in horror as some, with limbs bleeding, paralyzed, hospitalized, blind & deaf, no longer able to function, they confidently tell us it’s still ok to take the ‘treatment‘ … ‘for the greater good’.

The Daily Reckoning
With so much news about an economic reopening, a border crisis, massive government spending and exploding deficits, it’s easy to overlook the ongoing war on cash.
That’s a mistake because it has serious implications not only for your money, but for your privacy and personal freedom, as you’ll see today.
Cash prevents central banks from imposing negative interest rates because if they did, people would withdraw their cash from the banking system.
Mixed (regular) sources:
A recent headline from MSM … The superspreaders behind top Covid-19 conspiracy theories … does not in my opinion do them any favours. People with functioning brains want to know all sides of the discussion before making a decision about health interventions…. that is called informed consent, should they decide to proceed. Or not.
Do consider these posts if you are one of those who would like to balance all of the info carefully. (The other info out there is easily found, in all of mainstream publications. There is no need for me to post it here).
People who fail to get a Covid-19 vaccination could be banned from using public transport in France, according to a draft law sparking angry protests from opposition politicians on Tuesday.
Prime Minister Jean Castex on Monday got his cabinet’s backing for a bill that is designed to provide a legal framework for dealing with health crises, including the coronavirus pandemic.
According to the text, which will now be submitted to parliament, a negative Covid test or proof of a “preventative treatment, including the administration of a vaccine” could be required for people to be granted “access to transport or to some locations, as well as certain activities”.
The government’s vaccination campaign is to start on Sunday, and officials already face widespread resistance to a treatment developed in record time since the outbreak hit Europe early this year.
Dr. Vanessa Teague is one frustrated cryptographer.
A researcher at the University of Melbourne in Australia, Teague has twice demonstrated massive security flaws in the online voting systems used in state elections in Australia — including one of the largest deployments of online voting ever, the 2015 New South Wales (NSW) state election, with 280,000 votes cast online.[ Keep up with 8 hot cyber security trends (and 4 going cold). Give your career a boost with top security certifications: Who they’re for, what they cost, and which you need. | Sign up for CSO newsletters. ]
The response? Official complaints about her efforts to university administrators, and a determination by state election officials to keep using online voting, despite ample empirical proof, she says, that these systems are not secure.
While insecure voting machines have received most of the attention since the 2016 U.S. presidential election, states and municipalities continue to use — even enthusiastically adopt — web-based online voting, including 31 states in the U.S., two provinces in Canada, and two states in Australia. Wales in the UK is pushing hard for online voting. The country of Estonia uses online voting for its national elections.
Former Mayor Michael Feyen drew attention during his term to the same issues Billy Te Kahika and the NZ Public Party is now, namely UN Agenda 2030. He speaks from his experience as a recipient of the stonewalling and neutering he received, and like many NZers is concerned with the corporatization of NZ, our threatened democracy and the general direction our country is taking. Have a listen & consider hearing Billy speak in PN on July 2nd, 7pm at the Conference Center. EWR
Yes, sure we really do need all this military hardware in NZ … after all it’s all rolling out across the US as well. Key did quite a bit of footwork on that front as I recall, oiling the war machine with his (expensive) celebrations in Auckland. And now as we have the global agenda 21/30 unfolding right in front of our eyes, and looming fascist plans for global vaccination among other things, well as Trump himself said, he will call on the military to assist with that. Adern’s given quite a few millions we can’t afford (but no worries they’ll just conjure up some more out of thin air to cover it) and well, what’s a few billion for tanks and things? We sure need those more than we need homes for the homeless don’t we, given the other part of the govt sold a quarter of them off to their property developer mates. But no worries again, Adern will just keep popping them into motels well at least it makes it look like something’s being done. Meanwhile whatever happened to the most recent suicide stats I heard they disappeared off the MOH website just before the cv lockdown. Anybody know? Guess they knew it would escalate for some in such trying and stressful times … especially those whose businesses hit the wall, or those who really were afraid of the pandemic that was predicted to kill off millions.
Enjoy your military hardware peeps. You might well see some of it rolling down your street one day soon. EWR
He says the spending, the most since the depths of the Cold War, is required because climate change will place new demands on the NZ Defence Force (NZDF).
Billions have already been committed to new equipment such as the four P8 Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft set to replace the P-3 Orions.
After locking in five new Super Hercules to replace the Air Force’s aged transport fleet, Mark said his top priority is sorting out new armoured vehicles for the Army.

“They did not like our incriminating articles on our blog: earthlyfireflies.org. They kept us hostages without communication even with each other.

—Once again, in this article, I step into the world of official gibberish about the epidemic and the virus and tests and so on. I point out the internal contradictions in the government position. And then I step back and look at what they’re really up to, in the way of a covert operation.
Let’s start with the official word on so-called immunity certificates.
POLITICIO, 4/10: “Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, revealed Friday the federal government is considering issuing Americans certificates of immunity from the coronavirus, as the Trump administration works to better identify those who have been infected and restart the U.S. economy in the coming weeks.”
“The proposal is contingent upon the widespread deployment of antibody tests which the National Institutes of Health and the Food and Drug Administration are in the process of validating in the U.S., Fauci said.”
“Although coronavirus testing thus far has been able to determine if an individual has an active infection, antibody tests report whether an asymptomatic person was previously infected but has since recovered [and is immune], potentially allowing them to return to their jobs.”
Now let’s take that POLITICO article apart.
Immunity certificates would be issued to people who test POSITIVE on an antibody test. Meaning: antibodies in a person’s body are a sign that he has gained immunity from the coronavirus.
But wait. How about this?
Science News, March 27: “Science News spoke with…Charles Cairns, dean of the Drexel University College of Medicine, about how antibody tests work and what are some of the challenges of developing the tests.”
“Cairns: ‘The big question is: Does a positive response for the antibodies mean that person is actively infected, or that they have been infected in the past [and are now immune]…?’”
In other words, when you penetrate an inch below the surface, you find there are even official/mainstream doubts, grave doubts about the meaning of a positive antibody test. It could mean IMMUNE or it could mean INFECTED.
This would be like saying, “The photo either proves there was a sixteen-car wreck on Highway 5 or it was smooth sailing and there was no accident at all.”
Actually, since 1984, a positive antibody test has generally been taken to mean the person is infected, has the disease in question.
So why the sudden turnaround now? Why are Fauci and other government officials claiming that a positive antibody test signals immunity?
Answer: Because, with the widespread use of this simple and quick antibody test (much quicker and easier to perform than the current PCR test), a reason is invented for issuing immunity certificates. And this is what the goal is. Introduce the population to immunity certificates. As a tune-up for the underlying operation, which is:
Immunity certificates for people who eventually receive vaccinations against COVID-19 (and, finally, all vaccines).
Just take the COVID-19 vaccine and you’ll be immune and you can carry with you a certificate, wherever you go—and you WILL be allowed to go here and there and live a normal life. With your paper or digital or tattoo immunity certificate.
Whether the certificate plan will be enacted this time around (COVID-19), or in the next fake pandemic, remains to be seen. But the IDEA is now firmly planted in the public mind. You can win a “gold star” on the blackboard from the teacher—your certificate to a better life. Just obey and follow orders. TAKE THE VACCINE.
Carrot and stick. Be free, or be limited.
If, indeed, we see a COVID-19 vaccine introduced, another variation on this operation would be: “Under Emergency regulations, everyone must take the shot.” But when you do, you’ll get your very valuable certificate of immunity. You’ll win a prize. Isn’t that wonderful?
No. It isn’t.
It’s Corona Bologna.
It’s all about CONTROL.
And in this article, I haven’t discussed questions about what would actually be IN the COVID-19 vaccine. I took up that subject in a recent piece about DNA vaccines. The new DNA technology, if introduced, would PERMANENTLY alter the genetic makeup of the vaccine-recipient.
And meanwhile…don’t you just love the idea of the government first locking you up, and then “freeing” you with an official seal of approval?
“The gate is open for you, sir. You have your papers. But you, sir, you must go back. No papers.”
Note, ‘temporary’. This will be a huge expense of course (great for the companies contracted to do the work) & further distancing us from each other. It furthers the agenda that has been happening anyway, towns with expensive new layouts that many folk did not want. Diminishing the numbers of car parks whilst saying it promotes / attracts business yet ruining businesses during the construction stage. Folk cannot get a park let alone get into the shops! (The example at the link is Foxton with long term protests over that $1.5 million do up. Ironically those who protested argued to keep the wide footpaths & road already there! But no they narrowed everything citing safety as one of the rationale). The article is also promoting cycling. Remember under Agenda 21/30 all of the above are really all part of the proposed smart cities & a carless future. (Of course cycling is great & beneficial but the agenda behind it in this instance is not … it’s not about your health at all). If they cared about your health for starters they would not be allowing the erection of cell towers in schools, shopping centers and all manner of ridiculous places, totally ignoring the clear and factual science on the risks.

The Government is helping councils expand footpaths and roll out temporary cycleways to help people keep 2 metres apart after the level 4 lockdown is lifted.
Associate Transport Minister Julie Anne Genter said when people begin to return to city centres after the lockdown “we want them to have enough space to maintain physical distance”.
“Some of our footpaths in busy areas are quite narrow. Temporary footpath extensions mean people can give each other a bit more space without stepping out onto the road,” she said today.
Funding will come from the Innovating Streets for People pilot fund, which supports projects using “tactical urbanism” techniques such as pilots and pop-ups, or interim treatments that make it safer and easier for people walking and cycling in the city.
“Footpath extensions would use basic materials like planter boxes and colourful paint to carve out a bit more space in the street for people walking, like we’ve seen on High St and Federal St in Auckland,” said Genter.
“A number of cities around the world, including New York, Berlin and Vancouver, have rolled out temporary bike lanes to provide alternatives to public transport, which people may be less inclined to use in the short term.
“Councils are able to use highly-visible plastic posts, planter boxes and other materials to create temporary separated bike lanes where people feel safe.
“It’s now up to councils to put forward projects.” The NZ Transport Agency will help councils make the changes.
“While planning can start during lockdown the rollout of temporary changes will not happen while we remain at alert level 4.
“Councils can apply now for funding from the NZ Transport Agency, who will cover 90 per cent of the cost of rolling out temporary changes to the streetscape,” Genter said.
Auckland Mayor Phil Goff said the money would help his council develop widened footpaths and new cycleways in areas including the city centre and South Auckland where programmes are already under way.
“In the past two weeks we’ve seen a surge of individuals and families in their bubbles heading outdoors and making the most of the walking and cycling in their neighbourhoods, with some locations seeing a 100 per cent increase in use compared to the same period last year,” Goff said.
Auckland Transport chief executive Shane Ellison said: “Auckland Transport and Auckland Council have successfully trialled tactical urbanism treatments like planter boxes and paint in the city centre to create new cycleways and wider footpaths.
“Additional funding would enable us to quickly widen more footpaths in busy areas and deliver more separated cycleways so people can enjoy their streets and keep a physical distance at the same time.”
Ellison said the funding could speed up major projects like Access for Everyone in the city centre and the Safe and Healthy Streets programme in South Auckland.
About as predictable as you could get … please do read the New World Order & Agenda 21/30 pages (main menu) all you people who’ve labeled us conspiracy theorists for years, have a read folks. It’s right in your faces now. The right (manufactured) crisis has arrived. They’ve removed our borders as planned … gained control via their predatory loans.
“We are at present working discreetly, with all our might, to wrest this mysterious force called sovereignty out of the clutches of the local nation states of the world. And all the time we are denying with our lips what we are doing with our hands.” Arnold Toynbee – International Affairs, p.809, November 1931
They’ve created the crisis & now in true ‘problem, reaction, solution’ style they are going to usher in the global governance they’ve been talking publicly about since the early ’90s.
I assure you it won’t be pretty. Don’t for one minute think you will be electing the coming world leader to run this global government. I am sure he/she will be appointed. These liars profess they care, in fact if you hadn’t noticed they’ve been trying hard to depopulate us for decades with those life-saving vaccines that Bill Gates funds. They’ve in fact been killing & maiming people. Go figure … EWR
If the US doesn’t couple its efforts to rebuild its own economy with the first steps toward creating a global government, humanity is doomed, Kissinger wrote in a recent Wall Street Journal op-ed.
“No country, not even the US, can in a purely national effort overcome the virus,” Kissinger warned. “Addressing the necessities of the moment must ultimately be coupled with a global collaborative vision and program.”
If we cannot do both in tandem, we will face the worst of each.
Kissinger laments that the pandemic has led to the return of a “walled city” model of nationalist governance, suggesting that “exploration at the frontiers of science” alone can save humanity from disease in his vision of a globalist utopia. But developing cures takes time, and the notion that countries should be discouraged from protecting themselves in the interim is suicidal. If anything, one of the reasons Italy, Spain, and France were hit so hard by coronavirus was the EU’s dysfunctional insistence on open borders amid the pandemic.
“Global trade and movement of people” are all well and good, but the pandemic has exposed the weaknesses of the globalist system like never before. It will take years for nations to rebuild, and repeating their mistakes is not something they can afford to do.
While serving as Secretary of State and National Security Adviser under presidents Nixon and Ford, Kissinger played a starring role in bombing campaigns against Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos and oversaw regime-change operations that placed brutal dictators in power in Argentina and Chile, as well as supporting state-sanctioned repression in Indonesia. A notorious report he penned for the Ford administration called for dramatic reductions in population growth across developing nations. One might think, given his record, that he’d be on the side of the virus.
But the Nobel Peace Prize recipient is here presenting himself as an experienced statesman who deeply cares about the future of humanity, calling on the US to “draw lessons from the development of the Marshall Plan and the Manhattan Project.” Sure, revisiting the Marshall Plan makes sense – there are no doubt insights to be gained from revisiting the rebuilding of Europe’s shattered post-war economies, especially since some of the countries hit hardest by the epidemic are in Europe.
Also on rt.com ‘Big mistake’: Italy blasts European Commission chief, says Europe needs ‘great Marshall Plan’ to battle pandemic crisis But the Manhattan Project? How does a top-secret, international doomsday project that produced weapons with unparalleled killing potential have any bearing on the coronavirus crisis?
Listening to Kissinger, it must be said, is what got the US into its current situation – believing itself exceptional, distrusting all world powers who do not swear abject fealty to it, repeating the same failed policies to the point of parody. A looming presence in the George W. Bush administration, Kissinger advised the country to plunge headfirst into the ever-expanding War on Terror, penning an editorial in the days following 9/11 that called for taking on “any government that shelters groups capable of this kind of attack.” Following such guidance has bankrupted the US and turned it into a banana republic, printing money frantically while its roads and bridges crumble, its citizens struggle to keep a roof over their heads, and the international community looks on, mouths agape, as its government continues to lecture them about human rights.
Kissinger concludes his jeremiad with a warning that “failure [to safeguard the principles of the liberal world order] could set the world on fire.” If, as he himself writes, the “purpose of the legitimate state is to provide for the fundamental needs of the people: security, order, economic well-being, and justice,” those principles collapsed long ago. The US’ first step, post-pandemic, should be to put out the fires set by Kissinger and those like him who seek to cloak empire in the rhetoric of liberal democracy.

While slow to apprehend Covid-19 initially and taking nonsensical measures such as banning travel from Iran while allowing travel from Italy unabated, the New Zealand government quickly changed tack and announced it was implementing a four-tier threat level to deal with the virus. It wasn’t long after this that the government gave New Zealanders a two-day period for everyone to tie up loose ends and prepare for what is essentially a nationwide lockdown (threat level four), which will continue for at least four weeks.
As part of this, a state of emergency was declared last week which saw the powers-that-be activate emergency legislation. This current state of affairs enables New Zealand’s National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) to close or restrict access to roads or public places, regulate land, water and air traffic, and even evacuate and enter people’s premises, among other measures. The New Zealand police are responsible for maintaining law and order during the state of emergency, and have been given special powers to order any person to stop any activity that contributes to the emergency. As of today, the state of emergency has been extended by another seven days.
So, what? I hear you ask. The Covid-19 crisis is an unprecedented situation which can lead to immense death and suffering, and has already begun undertaking that course of action in Italy, Iran, Spain and even in the US. Calling New Zealand’s response a descent into a “police state” is nothing more than a conspiracy theory, aimed at fueling and sparking more panic in an already panic-driven environment.
Well, perhaps you might want to tell that Victoria University’s associate law professor, Dean Knight, who said that with so much discretionary power, there is a very real risk that the discretion could be used in an arbitrary and discriminatory manner. Or how about University of Otago law professor, Andrew Geddis, who has questioned the current state of affairs in two separate op-eds, warning that police can use “extreme and unprecedented” powers to constrain basic freedoms of movement guaranteed by the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act.
We could say the same of Radio New Zealand contributor Catriona MacLenna, who penned an open letter to the country’s police with the aim of making it crystal clear that “New Zealand is a democracy,” “not a police state.”
We might also want to tell that to journalist Damian Christie. Christie was in the process of delivering video equipment to a client’s business with a letter firmly in hand to prove that what he was doing was regarded as being part of an essential service, his client being a large food producer. Despite producing this letter (and having no discernible legal obligation to do so), a police officer who stopped him began to yell at him and flat-out ignored the letter, even though we had been told that if we provide such a letter, we won’t experience any issues. According to the officer, however, Christie should only have left his house to buy medical supplies.
This is clearly untrue and, as Professor Geddis notes in his columns, has created much confusion about what we can and can’t do under the lockdown rules. I agree with Geddis that if there has been an instruction given to the police to apply these powers, then we need to see those instructions.
On top of all of this, the government saw fit in the most Orwellian way possible to set up an online mechanism for locals to “dob in” other fellow Kiwis who were flouting the lockdown rules. Within an hour of it being launched, over-zealous New Zealanders crashed the website with over 4,200 reports lodged. Police have also arrested a number of people for breaching the lockdown rules. I expect this number to climb somewhat over the next three weeks.
I don’t know how comfortable I am with a website where people can dob in other people without requiring any demonstrable evidence. I am also concerned as to what this precedent could achieve in the future. Perhaps the next lockdown won’t be because of Covid-19, but because of a different situation entirely. What if the next website is set up to dob in not flouters of the lockdown, but say, political dissidents?
We are always naive in thinking that this type of activity can never occur in New Zealand, even when the Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB) has been found to have spied on targets illegally; or that time the Snowden papers revealed that the GCSB was spying on the entire Pacific on a mass scale without the knowledge of its neighbors. How quickly New Zealanders seem to forget these facts, or perhaps simply turn a blind eye to them from the outset.
The emergence of New Zealand’s police state apparatus comes at an interesting time. The Court of Appeal just ruled last week that New Zealanders have no constitutional right to bear arms, following a failed legal challenge by the “Kiwi Party.” While denying that right, the government has been quietly rolling out an extensive armed police patrol trial which saw units deployed 75 times a day in their first five weeks (what on Earth for?)
Look, I get it. I take the Covid-19 crisis as seriously as the next person, and for that matter, the overarching principles of the lockdown requirements. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t question power and the abuse of that power, even during a national and global state of emergency.
As Benjamin Franklin’s old adage goes: “Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” And they’ll probably end up losing both.
The man is outspoken about the state of the NZ government on his radio show. Could this be why? They’re not saying. They want the gentleman to tell them if he knows why they’re there. Is this the new face of policing? Exercising one’s right of free speech used to be an OK activity in NZ didn’t it? Watch carefully at what is happening by increments to that freedom in our country. Meanwhile on other shores namely Europe we have national lockdowns, 30K troops at the ready with considerations of martial law. And over in little Himatangi NZ the Defense Force has been recently practicing medical evacuations. Interesting times aren’t they? EWR
New Zealand is a leader in government use of artificial intelligence (AI). It is part of a global network of countries that use predictive algorithms in government decision making, for anything from the optimal scheduling of public hospital beds to whether an offender should be released from prison, based on their likelihood of reoffending, or the efficient processing of simple insurance claims.
But the official use of AI algorithms in government has been in the spotlight in recent years. On the plus side, AI can enhance the accuracy, efficiency and fairness of day-to-day decision making. But concerns have also been expressed regarding transparency, meaningful human control, data protection and bias.
In a report released today, we recommend New Zealand establish a new independent regulator to monitor and address the risks associated with these digital technologies.
There are three important issues regarding transparency.
One relates to the inspectability of algorithms. Some aspects of New Zealand government practice are reassuring. Unlike some countries that use commercial AI products, New Zealand has tended to build government AI tools in-house. This means that we know how the tools work.
But intelligibility is another issue. Knowing how an AI system works doesn’t guarantee the decisions it reaches will be understood by the people affected. The best performing AI systems are often extremely complex.
To make explanations intelligible, additional technology is required. A decision-making system can be supplemented with an “explanation system”. These are additional algorithms “bolted on” to the main algorithm we seek to understand. Their job is to construct simpler models of how the underlying algorithms work – simple enough to be understandable to people. We believe explanation systems will be increasingly important as AI technology advances.
A final type of transparency relates to public access to information about the AI systems used in government. The public should know what AI systems their government uses as well as how well they perform. Systems should be regularly evaluated and summary results made available to the public in a systematic format.
Our report takes a detailed look at how well New Zealand law currently handles these transparency issues.
New Zealand doesn’t have laws specifically tailored towards algorithms, but some are relevant in this context. For instance, New Zealand’s Official Information Act (OIA) provides a right to reasons for decisions by official agencies, and this is likely to apply to algorithmic decisions just as much as human ones. This is in notable contrast to Australia, which doesn’t impose a general duty on public officials to provide reasons for their decisions.
But even the OIA would come up short where decisions are made or supported by opaque decision systems. That is why we recommend that predictive algorithms used by government, whether developed commercially or in-house, must feature in a public register, must be publicly inspectable, and (if necessary) must be supplemented with explanation systems.
Another issue relates to human control. Some of the concerns around algorithmic decision-making are best addressed by making sure there is a “human in the loop,” with a human having final sign off on any important decision. However, we don’t think this is likely to be an adequate solution in the most important cases.
A persistent theme of research in industrial psychology is that humans become overly trusting and uncritical of automated systems, especially when those systems are reliable most of the time. Just adding a human “in the loop” will not always produce better outcomes. Indeed in certain contexts, human collaboration will offer false reassurance, rendering AI-assisted decisions less accurate.
With respect to data protection, we flag the problem of “inferred data”. This is data inferred about people rather than supplied by them directly (just as when Amazon infers that you might like a certain book on the basis of books it knows you have purchased). Among other recommendations, our report calls for New Zealand to consider the legal status of inferred data, and whether it should be treated the same way as primary data.
A final area of concern is bias. Computer systems might look unbiased, but if they are relying on “dirty data” from previous decisions, they could have the effect of “baking in” discriminatory assumptions and practices. New Zealand’s anti-discrimination laws are likely to apply to algorithmic decisions, but making sure discrimination doesn’t creep back in will require ongoing monitoring.
The report also notes that while “individual rights” — for example, against discrimination — are important, we can’t entirely rely on them to guard against all of these risks. For one thing, affected people will often be those with the least economic or political power. So while they may have the “right” not to be discriminated against, it will be cold comfort to them if they have no way of enforcing it.
There is also the danger that they won’t be able to see the whole picture, to know whether an algorithm’s decisions are affecting different sections of the community differently. To enable a broader discussion about bias, public evaluation of AI tools should arguably include results for specific sub-populations, as well as for the whole population.
A new independent body will be essential if New Zealand wants to harness the benefits of algorithmic tools while avoiding or minimising their risks to the public.

“Have you ever had any type of sex – vaginal, anal, or oral sex? Have you ever been attracted to the same sex? Girl to girl or guy to guy? Or do you feel that you are gay, lesbian, or bisexual?” Willis read from the survey.
Wherever you stand on this issue the point being made is the lack of knowledge or consent for the parents of their 9-13 YOs being given this very controversial survey. Why does your child’s school need to have this info anyway? … The term ‘well-child’ is a familiar term here in NZ, the term given for early childhood health checks. Middle school (not a term widely used here) refers to 9-13 YOs. EWR
Christin Willis was shocked and then outraged when she learned her middle-school-aged son – who just went in for a physical for football – ended up answering explicit sexual questions on a required survey at his school’s health center. The Oakdale, Louisiana mother told KPLC News 7 some of the survey questions crossed the line.
“Have you ever had any type of sex – vaginal, anal, or oral sex? Have you ever been attracted to the same sex? Girl to girl or guy to guy? Or do you feel that you are gay, lesbian, or bisexual?” Willis read from the survey.
Willis didn’t consent to her child being questioned. That only happened because her ex-husband gave permission, without her knowledge, for their son to get his football physical at the school’s clinic. Next thing you know, their middle-schooler was pulled out of class to take the survey. His father was not told about the survey, either.
Willis told 7News she believes the football physical provided a loophole to get her son to take the survey.
“I don’t even allow my son to go to the school-based health center. So the fact that he was questioned without letting me know is the most upsetting,” she said.
Willis later learned that the survey is required for all students who use the services of the school-based health center. And without the survey, the clinic does not get grant money to keep it running.
“I don’t like my child being used for you to get money for a system that I don’t support. We have a health care facility, we have a doctor. If I want to discuss sexually explicit things with my children, I’ll do so in my home or at my doctor’s office – his doctor’s office,” Willis told 7News.
Responding to the controversy, the Allen Parish School Board issued a statement saying the survey is one given nationwide and is part of the “well-child visit.” But the Board says it agrees with Willis’ objections to several of the questions and is “working to change or remove them.”
Additional funding for on-site health centers came from the Obamacare law (the Affordable Health Act), according to Breitbart News, with the support of the nation’s largest teachers unions. According to the latest census on school-based health care, there are nearly 2,000 centers nationwide.
Many parents, like Christin Willis, see the clinic survey as government intrusion into the rearing of their children and wonder why it’s any of the school’s business to ask such personal questions of students. With clinics located in schools all across the country, the question is, how many parents know about such surveys, and just how much more outrage might there be if they did?

In a recent article titled ‘Challenges for Resolving Complex Conflicts’, I pointed out four conflict configurations that are paid little attention by conflict theorists.
In this article, I would like to discuss a fifth conflict configuration that is effectively ignored by conflict theorists (and virtually everyone else). This conflict is undoubtedly the most fundamental conflict in human society, because it generates all of the violence humans perpetrate and experience, and yet it is utterly invisible to almost everyone.
I have previously described this conflict as ‘the adult war on children’. It is indeed humanity’s ‘dirty little secret’.
Let me illustrate and explain the nature and extent of this secret war. And what we can do about it.
Every day, according to some estimates, human adults kill 50,000 of our children. The true figure is probably significantly higher. We kill children in wars. See, for example, ‘Scourging Yemen’. We kill them with drones. We kill them in our homes and on the street. We shoot them at school.
We also kill children in vast numbers by starving them to death, depriving them of clean drinking water, denying them medicines – see, for example, ‘Malaria is alive and well and killing more than 3000 African children every day’ – or forcing them to live in a polluted environment, particularly in parts of Africa, Asia and Central/South America. Why? Because we use military violence to maintain an ‘economic’ system that allocates resources for military weapons, as well as corporate profits for the wealthy, instead of resources for living.
We also execute children in sacrificial killings after kidnapping them. We even breed children to sell as a ‘cash crop’ for sexual violation, child pornography (‘kiddie porn’) and the filming of ‘snuff’ movies (in which children are killed during the filming), torture and satanic sacrifice. And these are just some of the manifestations of the violence against children that have been happening for centuries or, in some cases, millennia. On these points, see the video evidence presented at the recent Judicial Commission of Inquiry into Human Trafficking and Child Sex Abuse organized by the International Tribunal for Natural Justice.
The opening statement by Chief Counsel Robert David Steele refers to an estimated eight million children trafficked annually – with 600,000-800,000 of these children (excluding both those bred within the USA without birth certificates and those imported without documentation) in the United States alone – and mentions such practices as ritual torture and ritual murder as well as training dogs to rape children and toddlers. He mentions the range of organizations involved from Oxfam and the Boy Scouts of America to ‘child-service’ agencies and police forces as well as various United Nations organizations, where pedophiles (those who prey on children) rise through the ranks to exercise enormous control. He also points out that many of the children bred or kidnapped into this system usually last about two years before dying (often after being raped several times each hour for some of that time) or being killed outright. He also mentions (with evidence provided in other video presentations) the forced removal of body organs from children of Falun Gong practitioners in China.

Of course we must reject sovereignty, all nations’ sovereignty in fact. That’s what Arnold Toynbee boasted about way back …. “We are at present working discreetly, with all our might, to wrest this mysterious force called sovereignty out of the clutches of the local nation states of the world. And all the time we are denying with our lips what we are doing with our hands.” Arnold Toynbee – (International Affairs, p.809, November 1931) and can’t you see why they’re burning the books now?
This is what the new world order scam is all about, global governance and all of that … aka Agenda 21 more lately Agenda 2030, they’ve been warming us to the idea for decades, problem is folk are no longer swallowing it. It’s pretty much jack boot governance disguised as the utopian global village. Can’t you see that playing out even now? The riots globally that lamestream of course never mention. It’s not in their masters’ interests to know what is really happening on planet earth. They print only what they want you to know.
And now you’re knowing too much they are censoring the hang out of everything and burning what they can’t … digital and paper. Happening here in NZ also. These are precursors to a tyrannical government as history illustrates.
If you are into dot joining you’ll have noticed a few other precursors going on as well. They are busily manufacturing major crises.
I was reading last night a book by a New Zealander the late Barry Smith called ‘Final Notice’. In it he describes newspaper articles & quotes (yes lamestream material) that discusses at length the plan for global governance as they cleverly term it. In the 1970s a news item told us ‘The New Zealand Government is urged to press for a World Government to safeguard peace and human survival’ citing a book by Garry Davis called ‘World Government – Ready or Not’. Former Auckland Mayor Dove Meyer-Robinson was advocating it along with a Professor Adcock, formerly of Victoria University. As part of their Emergency Committee for World Government they stated: “….we are concerned because the World seems to be faced with something of a crisis because of the nuclear threat and the danger of ecological breakdown due to the poisoning of the planet and over-population…”
There they are … the three go tos of ‘the nwo club’ that we’re all so familiar with now. A bit rich isn’t it when our own government cum corporation (or should that be the other way around?) has been slathering its environment & people with a Class 1A ecotoxin (1080 poison) for well over fifty years now, under the guise of protecting our native wildlife. Get that … poisoning everything that breathes in its firing line, to protect our natives? Do you really swallow that one?
Just providing the bigger picture here to the headline… do have a read of the article at the link:
From Jenese James
I watched Bilderberg The Movie last night – (written & Produced by Daniel Estulin, Directed by Joan Cutrina). I have read his books, and asked him if anyone from NZ has been to Bilderbergs, but that was quite a few years ago – over a decade – when I used to write about these sorts of things – he said to his knowledge no – I might ask him again since it was before the days of John Key. I highly recommend watching this documentary on Prime for free or hire/buy it at this link – if you are not familiar with how things work then this will open your eyes.
Any how – its really important to comprehend that we are living in the time of revealing – where nothing can be hidden not even by these people – now they are all in plain sight – and as we move towards 2020 many more people are going to see them – there will be nowhere for them to hide their agenda and their hidden hand.
Every MSM will have a connection to someone within this group – only a handful of people are in the know – same as the banking industry …..all industries – this is ONE conspiracy that is being seen as fact in terms of how their hidden hand controls everything within nation states and it’s not as if we don’t know this – JFK gives a great speech in this doco about what he saw happening – he was killed of course – this is what he said …. the link to the whole speech is below:
“….For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day….”
So was MLK – if you take a moment and have a hard look anyone who tries to stand up against this system gets taken out or like Julian Assange – gets painted as bad and trapped in an embassy for why – trying to get the truth out – that in and of itself should be telling all that something is seriously wrong with the system.
2020 is known by everyone as perfect vision – 2020 vision in fact – we are going to be in 2020 next year – what are we going to see so clearly – the corruption of the system will no longer be deniable by the MSM who always seem to be the ones putting down anyone who seeks to speak out about it …thereby guarding the gates of perception ……
It is no coincidence that the entire world is facing rising house prices, rising homelessness and rising poverty this is NOT an accident.
Dai Ben Tim Russell Robert F. Kennedy, Jr– and so they killed Kennedy and gained in power and still exist today they are the Monsanto the Duponts the oil empire, they are the head of MSM – of banks of all forms of control – Big Pharma – all of them will be seen for what they are in 2020 as the world wakes up en mass to what we have known for decades …..
“Based on Daniel´s Estulin Best Seller, Bilderberg, The Movie is the original documentary film about the origins, development and expansion of one of the most elitist and secret organizations in today’s world: The Bilderberg Group.
Once a year, the most powerful people on the planet, meet behind closed doors. The Group is comprised of European Prime Ministers, American presidents, and the wealthiest CEOs of the world, all coming together to discuss the economic and political future of humanity.
The working press has never been allowed to attend, nor have statements ever been released on the attendees’ conclusions or discussions, which have ramifications on the citizens of the world.” Source: Vimeo channel
