So NZ’s socialist Adern gets to manage the shadow corporation (sorry government) for a further 3 years

So NZ’s Labour Party gets to keep managing the shadow corporation, for another 3 years (and yes it’s true, our country is listed on the SEC as a corporation see at the link). Surprised are we? Remember, Jacinda Adern’s a true blue socialist. (Should that be red?) Listen to her addressing her ‘comrades’ as president of the Intl Young Socialist League, she mentions ‘comrades’ 17 times. I’m not making this up.

Jacinda Adern, NZ’s PM

… anyway, blue or red makes no difference really…

….and finally, remember this below?

Since the ’60s they’ve controlled NZ

Watch this space. They, the globalists under the banner of the new world order (which they keep mentioning casually here & there, the Pope being the latest) are picking off countries one at a time. If they did all at once the people would rise up. Watch NZ, Australia, Canada. New lockdowns coming soon. You’re just getting a breather right now.

Meet the next ‘Moa’ … Why is the NZ Green Party not condemning the extinction threat to the critically endangered Teviot Flathead?

By Craig Hutchinson

Earlier this week I looked on the NZ Green Party’s website for a statement on the Labour-led government’s Lake Onslow ‘pumped hydro’ project. I couldn’t find one. So I asked the retiring Green Party Energy and Resources Spokesperson, Gareth Hughes. I included a link to my earlier post:

https://www.minds.com/waimak_one/blog/nz-labour-s-mad-energy-idea-1136410724734169088

I think I have offended him. His response:

I would like to decline the opportunity thank you. When your first line is “First we have a fake-left Prime Minister with a fake Covid19 narrative. Now her fake Labour Party (they’ve just destroyed thousands of workers jobs) is pushing a fake energy policy.” And you quote that thoroughly discredited Michael Moore documentary I don’t feel it would be a worthwhile conversation.

Interesting. I didn’t ask for a conversation. I asked for the Green Party’s position on the Lake Onslow proposal.

The NZ parliamentary rot thickens – ongoing corruption in the ranks

As we lurch towards the 2020 elections, with a semblance of medical martial law materializing, given all the speedy law changes coming down the pipeline I wonder at times will we even make it there. Headlines of lamestream media are a fruit salad of corruption. Hailing from the ’60s I’ve never seen so much of it. Penny Bright, may she rest in peace, uncovered much of this before she passed. Particularly the outright lie that NZ enjoyed the reputation (only) of being the least corrupt country in the world.

Are we surprised that Labour’s interim housing targets are scrapped?

The usual foot dragging with nary a mention of all the state house (aka property) sell offs. Forty three thousand still homeless, living in cars, garages & sheds. That hasn’t all gone away meantime, rents soar  to beyond affordable and agents I see now have the luxury of letting applicants make the highest bid. At least the developers are happy. They’ve been having a heyday since Key’s regime.

tom scott dom post today date is 4 may 16

Sad what NZ has become. I spotted a video recently extolling the virtues of Rogernomics. By the Free To Choose, trickle down theorists. Couldn’t resist commenting, ” What a wonderful success this was. We now have 43K homeless. Large part of our State housing stock gone to property developers. One of the highest suicide rates in the world. Highest rate of child poverty in the developed world. Rivers so filthy you can only now swim in 40% of them. Oh and lets not forget the $124,518, 490, 682 debt last time I looked. Great stuff Roger Douglas. First pain (for the poor) then gain (for the rich).

So the KiwiBuild is to be recalibrated as the interim targets are scrapped reports stuff which is of course fancy corporate speak for ‘homelessness is not really a priority’.

The must watch at this point is Bryan Bruce’s ‘Mind the Gap’ documentary. He exposes all of the above. 

KiwiBuild to be ‘recalibrated’ as interim targets are scrapped

KiwiBuild’s “interim” targets for this electoral term have been scrapped as the Government recalibrates the programme.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Housing Minister Phil Twyford told media from their caucus retreat on Wednesday that their commitment to building 100,000 affordable homes over the next decade remains intact, but the interim targets for this term did not.

The Government has been dealing with the fallout from an admission by Twyford that the Government would not be able build 1000 of the homes by July 1, its first interim target. Instead it expects to build just 300.

The KiwiBuild policy aims to build 100,000 affordable homes for first-home buyers over 10 years, half of them in Auckland.

While in Opposition, Labour said the “ramp-up” period would mean only 16,000 of those homes would be built in its first term. Once in Government, Twyford set three interim targets to get to that 16,000 – 1000 by July 2019, another 5000 by July 2020, and another 10,000 by July 2021.

Those targets are now gone, but new interim targets could appear as part of the recalibration process.

Ardern said the interim targets had not been a “useful way” to demonstrate the Government’s progress on the policy.

“Yes we still need to be transparent, we still need to demonstrate to voters the progress we are making.”

How to plunder the New Zealand Economy 101

From Bryan Bruce

How to plunder the New Zealand Economy 101
1.Develop “free “trade deals that allow foreign companies the same access to local resources that New Zealanders enjoy
2.Buy a property that sits above an aquifer and drill for water virtually for free and sell it at a price than is more than we pay for petrol.
3.Perpetuate the myth that “no one owns the water”
4. Makes sure that local and national politicians are elected who either do not have the will to change the economic order or a vested interest in keeping things just the way they are.

Who Ruined NZ & Why – ‘Someone Else’s Country’

No it wasn’t some unfortunate slip of responsibility or some such. It was planned. We went from full employment & thriving small towns with all facilities, to the rule of the super rich and corporations and the demise of democracy, both locally and nationally. You need to fight this with all your might at your local level. Watch & see how it all happened. EnvirowatchRangitikei

Someone Else’s Country full documentary

from Alister Barry

“The neoliberal revolution in New Zealand. In the early 1980s a group of free market economists came to dominate policy at the New Zealand Treasury. With the election of the Labour Party in 1984 and the appointment of Roger Douglas as finance minister, the new right elite took power and began relentlessly and ruthlessly turning New Zealand into their vision of the model free market state.

TPPA Latest

TPPA signing Auckland, 4 February

Rumours that TPPA ministers will sign the deal in NZ on 4 Feb were confirmed by Chile’s officials, although the government still says it’s not settled. Other reports confirm it will be in Auckland (as Fran O’Sullivan said back on 9 Dec), but MFAT hasn’t told people where. It’s NOT likely to be Sky City, which hosted the big meetings. This will be a small select ‘celebration’, probably somewhere with tight security.

The signing is largely symbolic but governments will try to use it as an opportunity to talk up the TPPA in the media. It will be signed by Trade Ministers (Todd McClay has replaced Tim Groser – we don’t yet know whether Groser will be there).

Rumours in the media that “US President Barack Obama lines up NZ visit” in order to thank the New Zealand government for pushing the TPPA deal look like a classic case of PR spin. Latest is that the Government denies the report saying “there are no plans in place for that to happen at this stage”.

Auckland Actions for 4 February

Auckland people will meet on Tuesday 12 January to talk about actions around the signing. The signing will be on a weekday, with Anniversary weekend before and Waitangi Day weekend after. We know people are anxious to get things moving, but please coordinate with others so that we don’t create confusion with multiple Auckland events. We will put out another Bulletin next week with more specific plans.

Other actions around Aotearoa NZ

Groups are already planning for activities leading up to 4 February. Chantelle Campbell will provide support and coordination for regional activity coordinators chantellec@xtra.co.nz

Lori Wallach & Jane Kelsey speaking tour 26-29 January

In the lead-up to the signing, leading US critic of the TPPA and the most knowledgeable person about what’s happening in Washington, Lori Wallach the Director of Public Citizen Global Trade Watch, will be doing a short speaking tour. Advertising will be available shortly. Lori and Jane Kelsey will speak at:

  • Auckland Town Hall on 26th January at 7pm
  • Wellington St Andrews on the Terrace on 27th (time TBA)
  • Christchurch on 28th at Cardboard Cathedral at 7pm
  • Dunedin 29th (time and venue TBA).

These events will be free, with a donation requested. A Give a Little page is being set up to support the costs of these events and ongoing campaign actions over the next few weeks and the months. In the meantime, if you have fundraising suggestions, contact Barry Coates barrycoatesnz@yahoo.com

‘Don’t sign’ Petition to PM to be launched tomorrow

Action Station is hosting a simple petition to the PM to tell the government not to sell us out and not to sign. That will be launched on 12th January. A separate communication will come out through email, Facebook and twitter tomorrow. Please circulate it everywhere.

Fact sheets
Simple fact sheets with updated information on the text will be available shortly. Apologies that the current fact sheets on the website are out of date – we will let you know when the new fact sheets are posted. The updating will be part of a website update and re-vamp taking place soon. The latest information on the TPPA text is in the Key Issues paper on the website.

Expert papers
For people wanting to understand the details of the TPPA text, there are New Zealand specific expert peer reviewed papers now available. These cover the Process (including what happens after the signing in NZ) and Investment rules. Papers on the Treaty of Waitangi, Environment and the Economics of the TPPA will be posted shortly.

Other expert analyses from offshore can be accessed on the TPPLegal website.

Labour Party position
Andrew Little has stated that a Labour Government would “defy the TPPA” if it conflicted with national sovereignty. He referred specifically to overseas ownership of residential property, so it is not clear whether this means that Labour would vote against the TPPA is there is a vote in Parliament. His Radio New Zealand interview is at http://www.radionz.co.nz/national/programmes/summerreport/audio/201785059/labour-says-it-will-defy-tpp
The Green Party, New Zealand First and the Maori Party have reiterated their opposition to the TPPA.
