SOMETHING YOU CAN ALL DO TO HELP…

From The Health Forum NZ facebook page

Note: link to website fixed now in case you had trouble with it

Sarah Beesley has been working hard behind the scenes to set up the website called concernedcitizensnz.com. In the Tools section of the website, you will find an amazing brochure on Informed Consent and the CV VX. I thought you might like to know that in the Wairarapa, a group of 14 people have delivered 10,500 brochures into mailboxes. The outcome of this activity? We heard today via a local health practitioner that there “are a lot of surplus vaccines in the Wairarapa.” It would appear that a significant number of people are choosing to “watch and wait” as a result of being better informed. We know of 6 separate situations where recipients told someone in the delivery group about the “great brochure“ and how it had helped them make their decision. They had no idea that the person they were talking to had been involved in the mailbox drop until they mentioned it. Several of the people delivering the brochures also had conversations with people on the street while mailbox dropping, and the feedback was generally one of gratitude for the information.

SO WE NEED MORE LETTERBOX DROP HEROES to pound the pavements (outside of the Wairarapa). TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE. If you want to help others become more informed in your local area, you can print off the brochure yourself and mailbox drop it. If you want professionally printed brochures, please let Sarah Beesley know. She is co-ordinating a print-run and can courier the brochures to you. The cost will be $95 per 500 colour brochures.

Please PM her BEFORE THURSDAY MORNING with your order and she will arrange payment. The order for the printer is going in on Friday. If you can’t mailbox drop but want to sponsor some brochures, please PM her about that too. And if you can mailbox drop but can’t afford to donate the cost of the brochures, Sarah will try to match you with a sponsor so that you get some. This is an extremely calm, balanced, and fact filled brochure, written using respected resources only.

SO IF YOU HAVE WONDERED WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP…YOU NEED WONDER NO MORE. FIRE UP THE PRINTER (or message Sarah) AND HIT THE STREETS, and thank you xx

The question of safety for NZers navigating the waters of vaccine warfare

C-o-v-1-9 V@cc Reacts and News New Zealand

My inbox every day fills with New Zealanders who are navigating the waters of vaccine warfare within the confines of their own family.
This morning I comforted a client who is literally crying with anxiety over the choices she and her family face around Covid vaccination. I receive messages from workers whose jobs are at risk because they do not believe the “safe and effective” messaging of our Government….and they want to wait longer to watch before deciding to have the vaccine (or not). Educated, scientifically minded, research focussed, New Zealanders are deciding the Covid vaccine is not for them (despite having received the full childhood schedule of vaccines). They are rewarded with derision, isolation within their family and peer group, and God forbid the dagger through the heart….labelled an “Anti-Vaxxer” (seemingly akin to being labelled the Anti-Christ). Top of their concern, is the question of safety…even more so than the still unanswered question of efficacy.

If YOU are one of these New Zealanders rapidly being assigned a second class citizen status because of your informed consent decision to decline Covid vaccination…PLEASE watch this (long) video. I don’t usually post much from Del Bigtree, but I do watch his video’s. His research is impressive…..his voice (loud and booming) is equally impressive! Watch this video….share it with those you love, who doubt your sanity for daring to question the “safe and effective”, “safe and effective”, “safe and effective” message beamed from every Government platform. In this video you will see actual footage from the Global Vaccine Safety Summit December 2019. This is a WHO gathering, bringing together eminent vaccine experts from around the world. When you have waded through 1 and a half hours of jaw dropping material, you may well feel shaken to the core about complete lack of science and research verifying the SAFETY of all the vaccines you have previously said yes to. While we are anxious about the “rushed” nature of Covid vaccination….it is apparent from these world experts, that we would be well to stop, start and question the safety of ALL the vaccines many so unquestioningly accept from their trusted doctors.

00:13:49 W.H.O. ADMITS IT’S NOT VACCINE “MISINFORMATION” Prof. Heidi Larson, Ph.D., Professor of Anthropology and Director of the Vaccine Confidence Project admits the biggest problem with vaccine skepticism online is that ‘a lot of it is not misinformation’ and that there is ‘a lot of ambiguity in the safety field.’ (Dec. 3rd, 2019)

00:16:54 WHO IS WINNING THE WAR ON SOCIAL MEDIA?Prof. Heidi Larson, Ph.D., Professor of Anthropology and Director of the Vaccine Confidence Project reveals an Oxford physicist’s diagram showing vaccine hesitant, pro-vax, and neutral communities on social media, and the shocking recruitment pace one is having on the other. (Dec. 3rd, 2019)

00:20:03 IS THE TERM ‘ANTI-VAX’ A SLUR? Prof. Heidi Larson, Ph.D., Professor of Anthropology and Director of the Vaccine Confidence Project urges the healthcare community to stop using the derogatory term ‘anti-vaxxer.’ (Dec. 3rd, 2019)

00:26:24 THE ERADICATION OF HERD IMMUNITYProf. Heidi Larson, Ph.D., Professor of Anthropology and Director of the Vaccine Confidence Project, describes the “biggest challenge” facing scientists, and the “very fragile state” of “vaccine-induced immunity.” (Dec. 3rd, 2019)

00:29:10 WAKE UP CALL FOR REAL SAFETY SCIENCEProf. Heidi Larson, Ph.D., Professor of Anthropology and Director of the Vaccine Confidence Project urges the medical community to invest in safety science, and states “you can’t repurpose the same old science to make it sound better if you don’t have the science that’s relevant to the new problem.”

00:37:22 FDA HEAD ACKNOWLEDGES A PLAN FOR SAFETY SURVEILLANCE Dr. Marion Gruber, Director, Office of Vaccines Research and Review,Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, FDA, discusses pharmacological vigilance systems not yet in place, which are essential to “really inform risk management.”

00:48:10 ANTIGENS & ADJUVANTS: THE GREAT UNKNOWN Prof. Stephen Evans, LSHTM, states an obvious issue regarding the lack of statistical power in safety trials. Dr. Martin Howell Friede, FDA, and Dr. David Kaslow, V.P., PATH, CVIA, W.H.O attempt to answer his question. (Dec 3, 2019)

00:54:17 TYRANNY OF SMALL NUMBERS Dr. David Kaslow, V.P., PATH, CVIA, discusses the conundrum of the “tyranny of small numbers” during small clinical trials for vaccine safety. Dr. Marion Gruber, Director, Office of Vaccines Research and Review, Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, FDA discusses current problems with the length of follow-up and post-marketing studies on vaccine safety.

Dr. Robert Chen, Scientific Director of Brighton Collaboration, tries to “tease” out the answer.

1:21:43 W.H.O. CHIEF SCIENTIST CAUGHT LYING TO THE PUBLIC Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, Chief Scientist at the W.H.O., addresses the world in a promotional video where she ensures the robust existence of effective vaccine safety systems and the overall safety of vaccines. 1:25:06 Five days later, here is her diametrically different opinion behind closed doors at the Global Vaccine Safety Summit on Dec. 3rd, 2019.

The COVID experimental injection is not mandatory in NZ … (calling out NZ mainstream media’s misleading headlines)

First and foremost I respect and encourage informed choice regarding any medical intervention. However, I am noticing sprinkled amongst our headlines, words that imply that it’s given that we all consent to the experimental COVID injection. To balance the record it needs to be stated that there is a choice. Many of us do not want to take it. I might add, those of us who do not, are not “anti-vaxxers” or “conspiracy theorists”. In fact we are joined in our preference by thousands of MDs and other concerned citizens world wide. Please respect our wishes.

Here is the current headline from teaomaori.news below. It implies and assumes all Kiwis will get the said injection:

All Aotearoa to get Covid vaccine from July

Citing Bloomfield they say: “As we move through the rollout of the vaccination programme, we want people to be as informed as soon as possible about when they can expect to be vaccinated. This tool is designed to make that as easy as possible,” Dr Bloomfield says.” End Quote

In my opinion this should read: “As we move through the rollout of the vaccination programme, we want people to be as informed as soon as possible about the known potential side effects and any unknown risks, and when the vaccine will be available should they wish to take it. This tool is designed to make that as easy as possible,” …”

NZ’s National Library is culling 600,000 books

Wiping out the data. Same as the internet cull. Precursor to tyranny. Guns gone, info going, censorship increasing, democracy gone, health freedoms going fast. Military on the streets. All the ducks in a row. EWR

___________________________________________________________________

Academics, historians, researchers and scholars feel a literary crime is taking place during the distraction of the global pandemic.

Sheltered in the bunkers beneath the National Library in New Zealand’s capital rests a treasure trove of books, including nearly 2,200 first editions that have been carefully looked after for decades. But not for much longer.

The “overseas collection” – which includes a first edition of Richard Neville’s Play Power, a 1912 edition of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility and multiple first editions of Graham Greene novels – is now headed out the door.

In total, the National Library in Wellington plans to get rid of more than 600,000 “foreign books” from their collection, saying they need to make space for more works on New Zealand, of which there are an additional 80,000 to 90,000 to store each year.

Bill Gates wants to censor your private conversations

From reclaimthenet.org

Tech billionaire Bill Gates seems more present in the media these days than he has been for a long time, but he’s not talking about what he knows best: how to make a lot of money in tech, stifle competition, and get away with it.

Gates is inserting himself in the debate around a medical crisis, the coronavirus epidemic, and if Wired’s tone is to be believed, he is to be taken as an “authoritative source” on medical issues, as a self-thought epidemiologist of sorts.

Who will fact check the fact checkers? (Corbett)

corbettreport 474K subscribers SHOW NOTES AND MP3: https://www.corbettreport.com/?p=36846 We’ve all come across online fact checkers that purport to warn us away from independent media sites under the guise of protecting us from fake news. But who is behind these fact check sites? How do they operate? And if these ham-fisted attempts at soft censorship aren’t the solution to online misinformation, what is? Join James for this week’s important edition of The Corbett Report podcast, where we explore the murky world of information gatekeeping and ask “Who will fact check the fact checkers?”

NZ unveiled their first Ai officer in Feb this year … its name is Ella – the Electronic Life Like Assistant

As AI gets on its legs, along with the new ‘social distancing’ the folk we interact with become less and less personal. Ella, the new Electronic Life Like Assistant, is our latest AI possibility for obtaining info from the Police; Police Connect it’s called. We’ve come a long way haven’t we from the constable on a bicycle who actually cared and had powers of human reasoning. I doubt this Ella will. If we ‘advance’ to China’s social credit system (ie less freedom if you cross the acceptable lines …remember it’s been observed China’s the prototype for the new Orwellian totalitarian world government) Ella is all we’ll get to talk to regarding the rules and regs I’d say.

The REAL Face of ‘the fact checkers’ – learn who is Censoring & Controlling the Information You Receive

The ‘fact checking’ crew have been sifting through all that information from all of those truther sites for you … just in case you don’t have the intelligence to discern what is factual and what is fiction for yourself. I’ve encountered their little ‘fact checker’ logo pop up on a link I tried to follow up on Facebook. Needless to say I declined their check link & proceeded at my own risk. No thanks. (It concerned the truth about vaccines actually).

And just who are the ‘fact checking crew’? Parading as humanitarian, the real face of who is checking the ‘facts’ won’t be surprising to some of us.  You know, those same old names that pop up everywhere there is cause for concern. Names like Bill & Melinda Gates, Google, George Soros,  Rupert Murdoch, FB & many more. Their far reaching tentacles are everywhere on the planet.

It really does look like ‘they’ wish to control what you believe doesn’t it? Or should I say continue to control? After all they’ve been at it for many years & now the game is over & we know who they are they’re in damage control mode.

Thanks to the research of AmazingPolly and her YT Channel for this video.

Post 1080-drop water monitoring: a former Greens MP says there is gross misrepresentation around the official figures presented by DoC

Former Greens MP Steffan Browning, interviewed recently by Raglan Community Radio, discusses his preference for exploring alternative methods in culling pests. He also believes the information supplied to Eugenie Sage regarding the frequency of finding 1080 in water samples is at odds with independent testing. Official figures say 1080 is detected only 3% of the time however, from the calculations of an independent scientist that incidence is closer to 60%. The 3% figure supplied to OSPRI, Forest & Bird and so on, is in Browning’s opinion inaccurate & a gross misrepresentation. To go straight to the water sampling discussion go to 12 minutes.

And by the way, in addition to saying there are other Green MPs who are pro alternatives to 1080, he mentions former Green Party Co-Leader Rod Donald’s preference for the trapping alternative, illustrated by the Possum covering he had for his Parliamentary seat. What a shame their current Party stance is not so green on this topic.

Below is an excerpt from 1080’s product information warning about dropping baits in water, however the government has changed the rules so that they can drop it into waterways without a resource consent. The point of this news item is the way tests are carried out to determine poison levels, however, it is also pertinent to remember the manufacturer’s warning regarding water sources & 1080 risks:

Council corruption – two Horowhenua Councilors concerned that decisions are being co-opted by a select group of non-elected representatives of the business community – close associates of Mayor Duffy

“The purpose of the Horowhenua District Council is to enable democratic local decision making to promote the social, economic, environmental and cultural well being of the Horowhenua District in the present and for the future… ”
Horowhenua District Council

The Horowhenua Dictrict Council’s Ross Campbell, elected representative of the Miranui

ross-campbell-hdc-councillor
Horowhenua District Councilor Ross Campbell: concerned about the co-opting of Council decision making by business interests

Ward, expresses his growing concern about the way things at the HDC are run, in particular, with whom important information is shared and the way decisions are being made.

Horowhenua Mayor Duffy has a select Committee of close business associates – a non-elected, hand picked business group with no sworn allegiance to the district, that tells the elected councilors how to vote. Cr Campbell is not alone in his concern.

michael-feyen-hdc-councillorFellow Councilor Michael Feyen of Foxton confirms what Cr Campbell is saying  … “Take the time to have a listen to Councillor Ross Campbell’s very good summation of what we are up against in this HDC District. If the Horowhenua wants to progress it won’t be under the current regime.” Both Cr Feyen and Cr Campbell speak out regularly about the polluting practices of local government. Cr Campbell was allegedly assaulted in 2004 for his active part in this.

 

2Copy of Anne
Former Councilor Mrs Anne Hunt describes how she and other councilors were coerced to vote ‘correctly’

Readers may also recall former Councilor Mrs Anne Hunt expressed identical concerns earlier this year describing how they were coerced to vote ‘correctly’ using bullying tactics.

Listen to Cr Campbell’s recent announcement from his Facebook page (the following is a transcript):

“My name is Ross Campbell and as most of you know I’m the District Councilor for the Miranui Ward which takes in Tokomaru & Shannon, Opiki, Buckley & Mangaore and this lovely part of the district of Miranui.
I’ve got a few things that concern me when I’m in Council. One of them is these … we get a lot of information at Council … we get information from the NZTA you know, that’s the roading people; we get Government departments telling us all sorts of statistics and things, what they are likely to do and what they want to do. We get a lot of information from statistics of course, we get market trends, we get inquiries from overseas investments … we get information from Regional Councils, Health Boards and so it goes on … there’s a lot of information coming in. This information is meant to be used in briefings to councillors, to help them in their decisions, planning the district, and which way we want to go, if we want to go forward or we want to go sideways or whatever the case might be, and so we use this information to help us make decisions. But this concern is something that I want to bring to you … it’s not always the case.

Our Mayor … some of you might not know this … our Mayor has formed a group of his closest business associates. They’re the people who he mixes with. And together with these associates there are developers, there are retailers, there are manufacturers, contractors, who have been selected by him. They’ve formed themselves into what we call an Economic Development Committee. That’s what the Council calls it but I actually call it an Economic Advantage Committee … over their competitors. You see all the information that we receive is passed on to this committee who are not elected people … they’ve not been elected to be there by you, who may be arguably your closest competitor in your business, and these people all get an unfair advantage over their closest rivals, and that rival could be you.

Because of all this information coming in, they know where the trends are, they know the direction the council’s thinking. They are privy to information that gives them an advantage over others, especially at this time when we councillors are told often to be quiet about the different possibilities that may happen.

These business associates of the Mayor actually came to our table at Council the other night and addressed us and advised us to vote for the policies that would benefit them!

What is that? To me that’s insider trading. I call it that but you may call it something different. But I’m not allowed.

This handful of business associates that our Mayor has selected are receiving an advantage over their competitors, and it’s just not right. These folks have not been elected by you. They’ve never sworn allegiance to the district, and are being rewarded for their faithfulness to the Mayor.

Go figure. What do you think? Just last week a decision was made to announce to the retailers in Levin as to where the road of national significance was going. But we wouldn’t announce it until February 2017. As it was told to us by the Mayor we shouldn’t announce it before the election as the Mayor, because of this, could get skinned alive. So just whose interests are we looking after? Folks, we must get out there and vote, and elect those you trust … not those who are there to furnish the Mayor’s ego and their own business pockets. That is one of my concerns and over the next few weeks, I’m going to share some of the other concerns I have. They are concerns that I believe you need to know about … that we haven’t got a Council that’s working directly for you … we’ve got a Council that is working for the few.”

Now, take a look at the mission statement if you like, of the Horowhenua District Council copied straight from their website:


Council’s Responsibilities and Activities

“The purpose of the Horowhenua District Council is to enable democratic local decision making to promote the social, economic, environmental and cultural well being of the Horowhenua District in the present and for the future.   

Council is made up of the Mayor and 10 Councillors (elected members). They are responsible for determining local policy and legislation, and defining the overall vision for the Horowhenua District. Council makes decisions on behalf of the ratepayers and residents.”

The Mayor’s Role

“The Mayor is elected by the District “as a whole”, and as one of the elected members, shares the same responsibilities as other members of Council.” Some of the Mayor’s roles that relate to Cr Campbell’s concerns [abbreviated] are:

  • Advocate on behalf of the community
  • Provide leadership and feedback to other elected members on teamwork and chairing committees.

Here is a link to the full pdf file Governance Statement 2014 – 2017 A Guide for the Community on Council Processes

Councils nowadays are fine in their rhetoric, or should I say spin?  What they are doing is regularly a very different matter. They should be making decisions DEMOCRATICALLY … on behalf of ratepayers and residents, and not on behalf of the Mayor’s close business associates!!

Horowhenua people, see what is going on in your District governance. Be sure to vote for change this October.  Vote for honesty and transparency.


Please help us expose the corruption and lies by our local governments by sharing this information!
