How Government Regulation of Therapeutic Products Will Work in Practice …it is designed to unleash a tsunami of biotechnology and synthetic food (Hatchard)

The New Zealand government is introducing the Therapeutic Products Bill, which is an omnibus piece of legislation controlling, among many other things, the availability of Natural Health Products and the introduction of biotech medical interventions. Given our experience of the last three pandemic years, we should be doubting the capacity of governments to protect our interests. Let’s look at what is already happening:

Do we really need legislation facilitating the further implementation of biotechnology in medicine, or do we rather need legislation outlawing its use?

An article in Mother Jones is raising the alarm. Mother Jones is actually a very pro-vaccine publication, so why is it alarmed? A clue is in the title “The DNA of Deadly Pathogens Is Easy to Obtain”. A virologist David Evans has created a close relative of smallpox, a devastating disease that was thankfully eradicated 36 years ago. He was able to do so because he was simply able to order long stretches of the virus’s DNA in the mail from GeneArt, a subsidiary of Thermo Fisher Scientific. Mother Jones summarises:

“Today there are dozens, perhaps hundreds, of companies selling genes, offering DNA at increasingly low prices. (If DNA resembles a long piece of text, rates today are often lower than 10 cents per letter; at this rate, the genetic material necessary to begin constructing an influenza virus would cost less than $1,500.) And new benchtop technologies—essentially, portable gene printers—promise to make synthetic DNA even more widely available.”

An Unregulated Multinational Biotech Industry

The dangers of the wide availability of deadly pathogens is not too hard to figure out for the average citizen, but it is apparently very hard for governments. The United States imposes few security regulations on synthetic DNA providers. In the USA it is perfectly legal to make a batch of genes from Ebola or smallpox and ship it to a US address, no questions asked. A number of nonprofits pushing for regulation are finding it hard to gain traction in the spiralling multinational biotech industry.

The most prominent scientist sounding warnings about the danger of unchecked DNA synthesis is Kevin Esvelt, a biotechnologist at MIT. He explains the problem is that even a recent graduate level biotechnologist would have no problem assembling a bioweapon from readily available synthetic gene sequences. A bioterror attack is only a short time away, according to Esvelt.

Others disagree. Milton Leitenberg, a biosecurity expert at the Center for International and Security Studies at the University of Maryland, concedes that making a virus might be easy, but carrying out a bioattack would be difficult(???). Now correct me if I am wrong, but aren’t we in the middle of a global pandemic which was likely started very simply by a lab in China which says it wasn’t even trying to start a bioattack? It seemed to manage it quite simply by accident (???).

Governments Are Covering Up or Ignoring Safety Signals

The main problem is that nobody appears concerned about biosecurity. Most governments, including ours, have been ignoring pandemic safety signals and even covering them up. This article points out that the regulation of gain of function research is vague, secretive, opaque, lacks accountability, and captures very little that’s risky in the life sciences. You could be forgiven for thinking the US government wants to encourage it.

Surely not? In any case, it wouldn’t happen here. We have an honest government, right? It seems not. Dr. Vinay Prasad is an American hematologist-oncologist and health researcher. He is a professor of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). He is the author of the books Ending Medical Reversal (2015) and Malignant (2020).

He is a highly published author known for examining drug trial reliability. Vinay rates a preprint paper authored by our Ministry of Health (MoH) claiming satisfactory Covid mRNA vaccine health outcomes as really bad followed by a LOL emoji (that is about as low as you can go), because it uses misleading statistical methods in order to downgrade the safety signal for myocarditis.

Prominent Drug Safety Expert Criticises the Ministry of Health Methodology – Not!

I can see the headline in our papers “Prominent drug safety expert criticises the Ministry of Health methodology”, no wait a minute I can’t see that headline anywhere in New Zealand. I wonder why not?

It is papers like these put out by our Ministry of Health that are enabling Albert Boula, CEO of Pfizer, to falsely claim he hasn’t seen a single safety signal. He might try a new eyeglass prescription and look at this recent paper analysing the results of 29 studies of post-vaccine myocarditis indicating a significant safety signal.

Moderna has a similar disregard for safety issues, see here, and a close relationship with US government regulators. Unbelievably Moderna was busy developing a Covid vaccine even before the pandemic (!!!) based on information it received from the government (yes, they knew what was coming, but no one told us). You can’t read about this in MSM either.

Was this an isolated connection between biotech vaccine researchers and the US government? Apparently not. There is a history of US involvement with Ebola that is very worrying indeed.

Natural is Undoubtedly a Misused Term

So OK, it seems that governments can’t be trusted to regulate biotechnology, but will they be able to regulate Natural Health Products as they intend to do post pandemic here in New Zealand and elsewhere? ‘Natural’ is undoubtedly a misused term around the world. The EU has agreed to allow ‘acheta domesticus’ aka natural common house crickets to be added to:

“multigrain bread and rolls, crackers and breadsticks, cereal bars, dry pre-mixes for baked products, biscuits, dry stuffed and non-stuffed pasta-based products, sauces, processed potato products, legume- and vegetable- based dishes, pizza, pasta-based products, whey powder, meat analogues, soups and soup concentrates or powders, maize flour-based snacks, beer-like beverages, chocolate confectionary, nuts and oilseeds, snacks other than chips, and meat preparations, intended for the general population.”

Only the “defatted powder of house crickets” will be used. Whew!

Just in case you are worried that an ugly inch long bug will crawl out of your loaf or be found floating in your beer, be assured that only “defatted powder of house cricket” will be used. If you want to know how to turn house crickets into defatted powder, forget it. This is protected proprietary information, nor are details of its digestibility to be released. You may have to find out for yourself by eating it.

It is not all bad news though. Insect protein from house crickets is, in fact, already known to be allergenic, so you won’t be in for too much of a shock when you turn purple and swell up unexpectedly. The EU is a bit worried about that, but never mind; the regulator is planning to design some allergenic tests for some unspecified time in the future.

Insect Powder is the Way Ahead to Combat Climate Change

In the meantime, the EU has ruled that no advice on the label will have to warn unsuspecting recipients of defatted house cricket powder. In other words, the EU has looked into their crystal balls, realised that insect powder is the way ahead to combat climate change, and passed the paste. Regulators are wonderful, aren’t they, and they even get paid.

It makes you wonder what the independent (???) New Zealand regulator will do when they are appointed as the high wizard of New Zealand breakfast, lunch, and dinner with the ability to do whatever they like as long as they check with, yes you guessed it, our dear Ministry of Health.

Here’s a clue from the UK Express. Apparently, people in the UK have inexplicably been suffering from blood clots, strokes, heart attacks, and circulatory problems. No one can figure out why (???) The Express has figured it out with the help of the Cleveland Clinic and reports, Blood clots: Compound found in eggs linked to an enhanced risk of blood clotting…which can lead to death. No worries for us then. There aren’t any eggs on our supermarket shelves. Let’s hope the regulator keeps it that way, and it is a big break for chickens. Funny though, we have been eating eggs for millennia and suddenly they are a big problem in 2023. Must be climate change again, something to do with gestation egg temperatures no doubt.

The Therapeutic Products Bill: Version 3

Joking apart, the New Zealand government has drafted an omnibus Therapeutic Products Bill, and it has passed its first reading in Parliament with the support of all parties (except the Maori Party, which might just be concerned about its effect on their traditional medicine). This Bill enables the government to facilitate biotechnology and gives a blank cheque to a regulator to tell us what herbs and supplements we can use and in what quantity. They are also allowed to tell us what herbs we can’t use.

This is the third attempt over recent years to pass a Bill like this. The last two failed because of public opposition. No one is being harmed by Natural Products, so why is our government doing this? You tell me because I can’t see any reason for this at all. It is good news for wannabe well paid government employees and multinational pharma-owned supplement suppliers. It is bad news for kiwi businesses.

Be Silent No More!

  • Ask your MP to reject the regulation of Natural Products and the facilitation of biotech medicine proposed by this Bill.
  • Write to Chris Hipkins (contact details) and let him know what you think.
  • Go to this link to make a submission before February 15th.

At first glance, it may not seem to affect you personally, because not much is actually specified in the Bill, just a little clause allowing one government employee to decide what we can consume.

If you want more details, this short video on YouTube explains what is likely to happen to the availability of our favourite Natural Health Products. It’s not pretty. If you want more information on the risks of biotechnology visit GLOBE.GLOBAL.

Our health is currently being tabled in parliament … what will you do?

From nzdsos.com

The Therapeutics Product bill will limit access to supplements, herbs, spices & everyday foods.

What will you do to save your health & that of your children?

What will you do for happiness, wealth & a life well lived?

Without our health, these precious aspects of our lives are either not obtainable or meaningless.

Ardern may be gone, but the Therapeutics Product bill is not. There is a long way to go to reunite New Zealanders but a good place to start is in everyone’s interest – our health.

Vitamin C, aloe vera (even in your garden), cinnamon, fish oil, n-acetyl cysteine, Vitamin B12, magnesium, kawa-kawa, zinc, selenium, astragalus, niacin, calcium, bilberry, Vitamin A, iodine, crampbark, thiamine, iron, lavender, riboflavin, thyme, oats, valerian, chromium, ginger, coenzyme Q10, glutamine, chaste tree, echinacea, pantothenic acid, St John’s wort, slippery elm, tumeric, soy, probioitics, folate, licorice, garlic, flaxeed oil, cocoa, cranberry, pyridoxine, cloves, celery, carnitine, evening primrose oil, Vitamin D, New Zealand green lip mussel, psyllium, Vitamin E, tea, quercetin, rosemary……..

These compounds and many more are now under threat of being restricted to big companies and only available on a doctor’s prescription. The doctor in turn will likely not know anything about the health benefits of quercetin.

Think about how the “no” vote affected access to medicinal CBD.  It is now on prescription only and costs around ten times the amount it did before.  Do you want to pay ten times the price for Vitamin C or valerian?

And this for supplements that are estimated to be 45 000 times safer than pharmaceuticals and for food that we eat or drink daily.

Dr Guy Hatchard explains in more detail in this post.

What You Can Do

Stand up and speak out!

  • We did it before and it worked
  • Talk to everyone and anyone you can
  • Form a group
  • Hold a placard
  • Make a submission – Submissions close on 15th February
  • Start a petition
  • Visit your local MP – frequently.

The government needs to know how many people oppose this bill.

Let’s Speak Out Together for Our Health – and Our Lives

NZDSOS is preparing a submission, but it is going to take all of us to let the government and whoever the prime minister is, know that the people of New Zealand oppose this bill and if it is passed it will hurt them in this election year.  

While you’re with your MP, why not mention the WHO’s plan to impose health controls on us via the IHR, and that many of us are dying and injured from the jabs, especially the young. They need to know that we know.

What Will You Do?

Jacinda Ardern’s Legacy of National Division and Excessive Use of Power (Hatchard)

New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has resigned after months of rumours. Ardern, whose popularity has plummeted during the last six months, told us “she had nothing left in the tank”.

The backstory to this resignation is a tale of woe. Ardern said she wants to be remembered as someone who tried to be kind. The subtext is: the country is in an unprecedented mess but don’t blame me.

Last year school attendance was reported as running at just 67% on any given day. Machete wielding teenagers are ram raiding liquor outlets, vape shops, dairies, and jewelry stores daily in a frenzied crime wave. The health system is overwhelmed. Ardern’s government promised to build 100,000 new homes over three years. It has delivered just 1500 to date.

Our tourist, farming, and hospitality industries have not recovered from lockdowns and border closures. It now takes weeks to get a visa to visit New Zealand (it used to take two days) and the government says it only wants rich people to come. No wonder, we are all poor now.

Ardern famously insisted on universal Covid vaccination mandates. There is a suspicion that our 90% vaccination rate has left everyone in a lethargic fog. Excess all cause deaths are still running 15% above the long term trends, and it is not Covid.

History will judge Ardern harshly, but don’t blame her alone. This was a Parliament who woke up on all sides of the house to the weakness of our constitutional arrangements (there are none worth the name). The Bill of Rights was tossed aside, and no one in Parliament cared.

The leader of the National opposition Chris Luxon famously said pre-pandemic if he was in power, he would withdraw benefits from unvaccinated single mothers. David Seymour, leader of the ACT party wrote on his FB those losing their jobs through vaccine mandates only had themselves to blame. Labour’s coalition partners, the Greens, led by example, encouraging mothers in labour to ride to hospital on a bicycle (yes they did).

Politicians of all parties were afraid to meet protestors and turned the hoses on them rather than listen to their concerns.

Revelations this week (here and here) that Ardern personally overruled her scientific advisors who were expressing doubts about the safety of Covid vaccines for young people and the wisdom of mandates, have circulated very widely and no doubt this has further undermined confidence in the government.

Ardern introduced ‘rule by regulation’. Adopting the enabling model favoured by fascists in the 1930s, her government has empowered authorities to tell us all what to do, when to stay at home, and where not to go. The courts, the Human Rights Commission, and the broadcast regulators have all followed the government line meticulously which has had a devastating effect on business, families, communities, and professions. To cement her policies, Ardern introduced massive government funding of our media and broadcasters—a hallmark of repressive regimes.

Ardern was a protege of Tony Blair and a graduate of the Klaus Schwab World Economic Forum young leaders program. Both must shoulder some blame too. What fantasies of global power did they offer to a young person who was given to idealistic dreaming that segued into fanaticism?

Ardern’s government, in an absurd overreach, has also funded a nationwide effort to discredit critics of policy, labelling them terrorists. This has divided a formerly egalitarian society, instituting a snitch culture that encourages us to dob in a neighbour. Government Disinformation Project employees appeared on funded films aired on television to a backdrop of atomic bombs exploding and Nazi stormtroopers marching. Absurdly they labelled knitting, blond hair, braids, vaccine hesitancy, love of natural foods, Yoga, and yes motherhood as signs of terrorism that should be reported to the intelligence services (yes they did, view it here on TVNZ if you can stand watching this nasty piece of propaganda and hate).

Why did Ardern suddenly change overnight in August 2021 from being a kindly figure saying she would never mandate vaccines, to being one of the world’s most draconian proponents? We can only speculate. New Zealand is a member of the five eyes intelligence network. Given the Pentagon’s recently revealed massive involvement in US Covid policy and gain of function research funding, was she fed information that a bioweapon was in play? We will likely never know.

The cynical will say that Ardern left early like Key to avoid the ignominy of U-turns and election defeat. Leaving open the possibility of political rebirth. The New York Times wrote this morning that Ardern, like Helen Clark, is in line for a global role and a bigger platform. We live in dread.

For a couple of weeks now government announcements and advertisements encouraging vaccination and boosters have been conspicuously absent. Has the penny finally dropped? We doubt it. It will take an honest, intelligent politician (are there any left?) to roll back Ardern’s dictatorial powers and kickstart New Zealand. Why would any aspiring newby give up that much power? The prospect will be too intoxicating, but that is what it will take. Someone has to rise above the mire of our current politics and realise that governments should represent the interests of people. Leadership is about fulfilling the aspirations of your followers, not just telling them what to do.

Our final verdict: It is not Ardern, but the whole New Zealand Parliament elected in 2020 that will be judged as the worst in our short history as an independent island nation, formerly famous for championing the underdog and offering opportunity to all. Ardern’s resignation lights a bonfire of the excesses of modern democracy. To find a way ahead, at the very least, the New Zealand Bill of Rights needs to be entrenched beyond the reach of power hungry politicians and compliant courts.

Jacinda’s resignation

So Jacinda Ardern has resigned.

Great excitement for many in NZ, others not so much. For the former group, don’t get too excited. Remember Smiling Assassin Key resigning? He’s now a ‘Sir’. And just this week, in similar vein to that predecessor, there have been disturbing revelations of alleged lies (a serious must read) from our single source of truth.

Could these have hastened her departure? We’ll likely never know for sure.

Those who are aware of the globalists’ strategies will know that timing is everything. Their global leaders are greatly rewarded for the paths of destruction they create whilst in office. Remember Sir Roger Douglas? Wrecked NZ on claims of improving the economy, now nicely and comfortably retired in the sunny north. (Meanwhile the rich got richer and the poor are even poorer). Ms Clarke, who let the GE corn crops into ‘clean green’ EnZed, beavering away on global governance at the UN. These young global leaders, servants of Klaus & Co, are suitably stepped aside at the right time (that being when too many of the public are waking up and/or they are widely hated), and either way, they know they will be well looked after.

It’s fairly likely Jacinda will in due course become a Dame and like others before her, will be well rewarded for her more recent years of discomfort at the hands of an awakening public. A nice well paid job in realms offshore until the public’s pain has worn off and the wounds are less raw. By then the newly installed leader (be it a Nat or a Labourite, same bird, different wings) will be well along the way in the next phase of installing the (not) great reset.

It’s a globalist script people, we have the mere illusion of democracy.

The New Zealand Government Reaches for Total Medical Control

From hatchardreport.com

For millions of years, humans and animals have maintained their health by eating the fruits of the earth.

The necessity and benefits of a broad natural diet are evident from Egyptian skeletal remains from 6000 years ago, which suggest scurvy—a disease resulting from a lack of vitamin C. In 1753 a Scottish surgeon, James Lind demonstrated that scurvy could be treated with citrus fruit. The New Zealand government seems intent on changing history.

Just before Christmas, our Government introduced the Therapeutic Products Bill for its first reading. Public consultation is being rushed through the summer holidays here in the southern hemisphere and closes on February 15th. The Bill contains 423 pages of dense provisions with countless cross references. I am not sure whether any MPs actually read it before voting for its acceptance or whether the public could stand to do so. You can view my video summary of its draconian provisions here.

You might be interested in the kind of nation we will end up inhabiting:

Reverse Patenting

If a Natural Health Product is found to benefit a serious illness (such as lemons which benefit scurvy), according to the Bill it should be classed as a medicine. Consequently, according to the letter of the new law, only doctors will be allowed to prescribe lemons. Joking apart, most foods benefit serious illness. You might think there is no need to pass a law classifying them as medicines, but according to the government you would be wrong.

80% of drugs are in fact derived from the properties of plants. For years pharmaceutical companies have been trying to patent medicinal plants and secure a monopoly of their supply and use. But this effort largely failed in the patent courts. The remedy for pharmaceutical companies is contained in the Bill being introduced by our Labour government. If a plant is used to make a medicine or the molecular structure of any of its compounds is mimicked by a medicine, then the use of the actual plant should be restricted.

For this reason, in 2016, a bevy of well-paid Ministry of Health experts (???) produced an idiotic list of common plants that they envisioned should be restricted. Natural products in this list included cinnamon, eggplant, almond, mustard, tea (yes you did read that correctly), coconut, and many many others. The present Bill (the third attempt over the years to get this past Parliament) sets up the same conditions that prompted the 2016 list of restricted plants. A sort of frenzied desire to control the minutia of individual life driven by a mad instinct that the government always knows best.

More than 50% of NZ citizens use natural products, so you might think their availability should not be controlled by the government. Wrong again. The Bill requires the appointment of a regulator who will decide for us what among what we have eaten for millennia can be sold openly and what should be restricted. The idea that one person can decide for all of us what plants that grow in the earth, can be sold, eaten, or used puts New Zealand in a unique class among tin pot kingdoms. We can imagine as we gather around the family breakfast table a swarm of well-paid government experts with pens and questionnaires hovering close by for a final check.

The situation at the border is very similar. If a herb benefits health, it will be a medicine and therefore cannot be imported except with a permit. Border officials will be very busy examining packages and if they find anything healthy, tossing it in the bin. Am I exaggerating? No. Rauwolfia Serpentina is an Indian herb that reduces blood pressure. Studies such this one published in 2015 show it is a safe and effective treatment for high blood pressure, but it is banned here in New Zealand because some hypertension drugs contain synthetic copies of one of the many alkaloids found in the whole plant—reverse patenting at its best.

Why is the Government Intending to Regulate Natural Health Products?

A rational answer to this question is hard to find. A recent EU study found that natural health products are 45,000 times safer than pharmaceutical drugs. The government, however, apparently believes they are unsafe, but where is the evidence? It doesn’t exist. An imaginary NZ doctor explains to their teenage patient:

“Years ago, before you were born, dearly beloved, a person whose name is lost in the mists of time might have felt a little off colour after taking a vitamin tablet and then recovered quickly. Ever since then, the New Zealand government has quite rightly been very suspicious of vitamins and plants grown in soil. So they are introducing a new and very honest law for us all.” or words to that effect.

There are many continuous traditions of natural approaches to health that have been followed by cultures on every continent for thousands of years and still are. There are more modern ones too that have attracted followers guided by trained practitioners. These include Indian Ayurveda, Chinese medicine, Chiropractic, Homeopathy, etc. The idea that a regulator who is unfamiliar with these traditions should control their practice and availability is inherently flawed.

This Bill represents an attempt to impose a modern medical/pharmaceutical straight jacket on the process of medical choice. A straight jacket that will no doubt be administered by people who are unfamiliar with and even opposed to natural medicine. The apparent intention is to drive people towards pharmaceutical-based medicine. It is worth noting that modern medical misadventure and misprescription is the third leading cause of death—hardly a direction that deserves a monopoly.

The logic of insisting on total government control of medical choice escapes me. It fits with a perspective that has been steadily growing throughout the pandemic: the government is seeking to control every aspect of life and impose a kind of uniformity on the nation. This originates from a distorted one size fits all view of reality. Diversity is actually a great source of progress and happiness, not something to be stamped out—a discredited communistic perspective.

It is rather curious that for two years the government has been denying there is any connection between serious illness and mRNA vaccination despite tens of thousands of instances of illness proximate to inoculation and studies showing a statistical connection, as well as plausible biomolecular mechanisms. In contrast, on account of a very, very small handful of unproven historical complaints about natural health products, despite widespread safe use, they wish to control what we eat and what health choices we can make.

Whichever side of the vaccine debate you are on, it should be clear that the government cannot have it both ways. They can’t apply different and incompatible logic as it suits their agenda. All the more curious when many vaccine injured and long Covid sufferers are relying on natural health products to help get them through conditions which many of our medical professionals deny exist.

Last night I spoke to a medical doctor who described how his comments on the benefits of Vitamin C and D have been censored by his colleagues and officials. No surprise really, doctors only spend an hour or two learning about the principles of nutrition during the entire course of their long training. One of his colleagues told him the only benefit of vitamins is to change the colour of urine. That just about says it all. James Lind, who found that lemons cure scurvy, must be turning in his grave.

There is in fact no reasonable rationale for introducing restrictions on Natural Health Products, they are not harming anyone and studies show that many of them have significant benefits for health. The introduction of the new law will cost a lot and it will be paid for by financial levies on manufacturers, importers, suppliers, practitioners, and retailers. A single company selling 300 products, each making two health claims, will be liable for as much as $3 million in government charges. Ultimately these costs will be passed onto the public making natural health products unaffordable.

What the Bill Doesn’t Do

Gradually over the last few years, synthetic flavours and additives have been turning up in processed supermarket items. If you are buying vanilla ice cream, it is now usually labelled as containing natural vanilla flavour. This is not in fact made from natural vanilla beans, it is a synthetic flavour. The use of the term “natural” is intended to disguise this fact. In 2016 our Ministry of Health approved over 3,000 synthetic ingredients, many of them without safety testing. The Therapeutic Products Bill will do nothing to correct the sleight of hand that is describing synthetic additives with an unknown safety profile as ‘natural’. I discuss many of the ways synthetic additives are affecting health in my book Your DNA Diet.

Nor will the Bill encourage the distribution of information about natural approaches to health that studies show are very beneficial in controlling common serious health conditions. Advice for example about diet, exercise, and the curbing of unhealthy habits such as smoking, excessive drinking, or ultra processed foods. Changes in lifestyle can be very influential in reducing cardiac problems as this BBC interview reports. Many other serious health condition outcomes could be improved in this way including cancer, obesity, diabetes, blood pressure, etc.

If the government wishes to encourage improvements in health and longevity, it would do well to launch a public education programme about natural health products and approaches rather than seek to limit their use.

What You Can Do

If we wish to be able to continue to freely choose natural health options, herbal medicines and supplements without government interference, we will need to speak up. Go to this link to make a submission before February 15th. Write to your MP and complain that the appointment of a regulator amounts to an open ended blank cheque to control the sale and use of products used by more than 50% of our population without fully specifying the principles he should use. Moreover, it will put many NZ businesses out of action. I could say a lot more but now is the time for all of us to have a go and hold up our hands. If we don’t, we will only have ourselves to blame. Given the short submission time available, we have to take a scattershot approach, contact as many people as you can and explain how this is going to seriously affect their health options now and down the line.

Exactly how will the 2023 Therapeutic Products Bill affect the Availability of Natural Health Products?

From Guy Hatchard

An Open message to Parliament.

Why are they regulating natural health products?

How will the therapeutic products Bill affect us?

VIDEO AT THE LINK (Transcript below, note the transcript refers to some products that are not named but are pictured in the video)

What does the public want?

The public are aware that research findings on diet, nutrition, and lifestyle indicate that there are proven health benefits.

Over 50% of the public use natural health products and alternative approaches to health care.

The public realise there are many traditional sources of information about what products can be used safely.

If an individual suffers from a chronic or serious illness, or simply wants to maintain health, they need to retain their options to research and choose the most effective treatment for them.

The new bill will regulate all natural health products that claim to benefit health.

This is an enabling bill. As a result, the government will appoint a regulator who will then decide for you what products can be sold and what health claims can be made.

Well, what will the regulator decide?

In 2016, the Ministry of Health published a draft list of 5500 approved and all restricted ingredients. Most likely, the decisions of the new regulator, when appointed, will be based on this list.

Let’s answer the public’s first question.

Are all these ingredients safe?

The 2016 Ministry of Health permitted list included 3000 synthetic and chemical additives.

A closer look shows that the permitted list includes many additives which are suspected of causing illness and cancer. Including:

  • FD&C red No. 2
  • Amaranth, No. 3
  • Erythrosine No. 4
  • Ponceau

All are banned in the USA by the FDA.

A 2007 study in the UK found a possible link between six food dyes, a preservative and hyperactivity in children. All these compounds are likely to be permitted by the bill.

Thousands of artificial fragrances and flavours have been approved, even though they have not been tested properly.

Here’s an example of a pre-approved synthetic product. This cheap popular drink is available in New Zealand supermarkets. All of its ingredients have already been approved by the Ministry of Health.

These include:

  • Sugar: which predisposes to obesity and aggravates diabetes
  • E330 Synthetic citric acid
  • Synthetic raspberry flavour, effects unknown.
  • E211 sodium benzoate: implicated as a possible cause of hyperactivity when used with E122
  • Colour E122 Carmoisine: banned in the United States, Sweden, Norway and Austria
  • Artificial sweetener E961 Neotame: similar to aspartame and banned in organic products. US FDA application noted adverse reactions. Dr. Mercola recommends this be avoided at all costs.

This bill will allow this synthetic product to be marketed as a natural health product.

We’re talking about serious health issues here. During the last 20 to 30 years, there’s been a huge expansion in chronic diseases, including cancers, diabetes, heart disease, anxiety, depression, and other mental and physical illnesses.

No one knows the exact causes but poor nutrition food, food additives and environmental pollution are all suspected.

Over 2000 new chemicals are registered each year. There’s been a rapid expansion in the use of chemicals in food and synthetic chemicals. Many of these have been approved without sufficient scrutiny.

Using discredited principles such as substantial equivalence additives that are similar to but slightly different from natural compounds have been approved in though is well known that very small differences in chemical structure can cause serious side effects.

The bill requires the regulation of entirely natural ingredients already known to be safe, in other words, foods.

Under the bill, all ingredients have to be pre-approved. We estimate a supplier will pay $200 annually for each ingredient.

The probable minimal cost of making a health claim on the label will be $5,000 to the regulator for each application. And for each mild condition, your product claims to benefit.

But you will not be allowed to claim that a natural health product can benefit a serious health condition.

If it is considered that your product has therapeutic value, you will pay around $100,000 to register it as a medicine. And only a medical doctor will be allowed to prescribe it.

An EU report found that natural health products are 45,000 times safer than pharmaceutical drugs; Despite this, suppliers will have to comply with pharmaceutical style regulations and undertake frequent costly testing of ingredients and products.

Say you’re selling 300 product products to the public, and each one benefits two mild conditions; the application fees alone will be $3 million before you’ve even begun to prepare your evidence.

The experience in Australia has been that the preparation of a single application can cost in excess of $100,000.

These restrictions are so costly that most suppliers will simply refrain from making health claims, so you’ll have less information. Many will go out of business.

The net effect of these regulations will be that consumers will have less information than they did before.

Restrictions on scientific information regarding serious illness

Did you know that the simple kitchen spice turmeric is effective in preventing bowel cancer?

There are a lot of studies.

New Zealand has one of the highest death rates from bowel cancer in the developed world.

Studies show that garlic, ginger, turmeric, thyme, rosemary, sage, spearmint, and peppermint all inhibit the growth of colon cancer cells.

A study found that 1/3 of patients with end stage bowel cancer for whom no other treatment options existed, improved after treatment with turmeric extract.

If the bill is passed, I would not be allowed to tell you this and could be liable for a substantial fine.

So there are restrictions on free speech

It has been proven for years that garlic benefits healthy heart conditions. No one selling garlic will be allowed to communicate this factual scientific information. Thereby the bill will restrict free speech and suppress matters of fact.

There’ll be restrictions on health claims

A consignment of this product, Vicks vapour rub, was seized by Medsafe. Officials in May 2016 and destroyed because the Label made this unapproved health claim:

Apply to the chest, throat, and back for 3-way relief from blocked nose, cough, and body ache.

Thousands of products could be snagged by this rule.

Restrictions on dose

In 2016 the Ministry of Health believed that the maximum daily dose of vitamin B 12 should be 50 micrograms. This product, vitamin B 12, is commonly used by people who are deficient. It has hit each dose 20 times the maximum daily dose specified by the Ministry of Health. So it could be banned.

A typical Indian or Thai meal may contain 50 grams of tamarind. The maximum daily dose of tamarind that has been permitted by the bill is 500 milligrams, that is 100 times smaller than the amount you might consume in a meal.

Civil servants have been employed to make up this ridiculous rule and hundreds more like it.

Banned ingredients

Even though this traditional coffee substitute contains only natural plants, it will be banned by the bill because it contains an ingredient that is listed under the medicines act.

A sort of reverse patenting that bans herbs if they are used to make medicines.

Hundreds of traditional remedies will disappear.

Neem is one of the world’s most revered traditional healing plants with many medical uses. Among its many uses, it reduces inflammation associated with internal ulcers. It’s so effective that pharmaceutical companies have tried to patent this plant.

The regulator is likely to classify this herb as suitable for external use only. Effectively banning its traditional use for no reason.

This popular form of vitamin C could be banned because it contains a derivative of lecithin (commonly used in chocolate and other supermarket products), which in 2016, was classified by the Ministry of Health as for “external use only“.

Restrictions on traditional Indian and Chinese medicine

The bill will empower the regulator to restrict the traditional practices of ethnic communities, and it will violate the Bill of Rights.

More than 150 commonly used Indian herbs and a similar number of Chinese herbs were wrongly placed on a not permitted list by the Ministry of Health in 2016.

To a large extent, this is because many traditional herbs have been found to be so healthy, that they have been used to develop medicines and therefore these ingredients will be restricted in natural health products.

There are more than 10,000 traditional healing herbs. It will cost more than $100 million to register their healing properties, so in effect, their use will likely cease in New Zealand.

Just look at this list. This is just a short extract from 300 herbs that the Ministry of Health sought to restrict in 2016. The last time they tried to introduce a bill of this type.

These are foods that we consume many of us regularly, why should they be restricted it doesn’t make any sense.

What will it cost you

And these restrictions are going to cost a lot. Last week a 50 gram packet of Rubia Cordifolia, a herb used to make healthy tea cost $12.

After the bill is passed, the same packet may cost 60 to $80, just due to the compliance clock costs.

There are over 100,000 eligible plants. It will take an army of civil servants years to classify even a small proportion of them.

Assessment costs will be paid by the manufacturing industry so the cost of natural health products will obviously rise dramatically.

What will escape regulation

Well, many unhealthy products will be allowed to be sold without regulation.

Sugary Drinks, hard fat, synthetic flavours, and alcohol will continue to be sold unimpeded….

while the government pours millions of dollars and years of fruitless effort into controlling products that are already known to be safe and healthy foods.

This would be ridiculous if it wasn’t immoral and criminal.

There is absolutely no need for the government to regulate natural foods that are based on DNA that are used in natural health products.

Natural foods and herbs should be automatically excluded from regulation. There is no need to do this.

Meanwhile, there is a crisis in healthcare

Medical misadventure, experimentation and interventions have just become the number one cause of death in the world.

Healthcare costs are spiralling out of control.

Mental illness has quadrupled.

Cancers, chronic diseases, heart disease, and many other conditions are increasing to epidemic proportions, all cause mortality is rising.

Clearly something has gone horribly wrong. But no one knows quite why.

There is no doubt that food additives and the drugs we take play a pivotal role in the development of disease.

There have been multiple failures in the regulatory processes which approve agricultural practices food and medicine.

How has this happened?

The process of regulation has moved away from science and becomes a cosy relationship between industry and regulators permitting unsafe and inappropriate products onto the market.

The bill, the proposed, bill represents a new phase of this cosy relationship. Regulators worldwide are cooperating to place restrictions on natural health products. And this will only benefit multinational companies.

What can we do to reverse this trend?

There is a scientific standard scientific approach to identify cause

Eliminate suspected causal factors and reintroduce them one by one.

Dr. Dee Mangin at Otago Medical School, has found that if you stop all non-essential medication for the elderly, their health improves.

Dr. Julia Rutledge at Canterbury University has found that greatly improved nutrition benefits children with ADHD.

Dr. Kulreet Chaudhary, a renowned San Diego neurologist, has found that her patients, including MS sufferers, improved dramatically when placed on a traditional herbal diet.

These are just pointers to the many scientific preventive approaches to health care, which are springing up everywhere based on natural foods.

So why is our parliament planning to restrict natural health products?

We need to remind ourselves there is no evidence that natural health products are unsafe.

In fact, there’s a great deal of evidence that they benefit health and prevent illness.

Natural health products are traditionally made from plants and animal products which are based on DNA and natural minerals.

Our digestive system has developed to easily metabolise food based on DNA without side effects.

Many people rely on natural health products to maintain their health. It will be criminally negligent to restrict their options.

True natural health products are in fact foods.

There is nothing risky about their use.

Taking natural health products is no different from the need to have a balanced meal.

Food is life. It is our first medicine.

The healing properties of plants are proven to benefit public health. Our right to use them should not be taken away by law and transferred to pharmaceutical interests.

We are a people here who believe in fairness.

This is not the time for New Zealand to become involved in an international effort to subvert regulatory safeguards.

This is not the time to restrict access to preventive health care.

This is not the time to allow suspected unhealthy synthetic ingredients to be included in natural health products.

This is not the time to restrict access to herbs and impose huge unjustified costs on traditional medicine.

This is a time for New Zealand to lead the world in the development of application of preventive approaches to health care.

The therapeutic products bill is currently up for public submissions up until February 15, 2023. Make a submission here.

Ask your MP to review this presentation, which shows that the bill relies upon outdated and discredited ideas.

Natural Products Regulation—An Overreach of Government Control

Civilisations come and go through the ages. When governments empower people, they harness the intelligence and creativity of their citizens for the good of all; when they seek to control their populations, they fall into decline.

Following three years of pandemic control, governments are not stopping there. Here in New Zealand, the government has introduced the “Therapeutic Products Bill,” which will control how products which appear to benefit health are manufactured, prescribed, imported, advertised, supplied and exported. According to Health Minister Andrew Little:

“It will enable New Zealand to take advantage of advances in medicine, such as cell and tissue therapies, emerging gene therapies, and the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning software. Having risk-proportionate approval systems will improve access to necessary and life-saving medicines, such as vaccines in a pandemic.”

An important part of the bill aims to regulate the natural health products used by more than 50% of our population. This is the third attempt of the Labour Party to introduce extreme regulation of the public’s options to choose their medical care, supplements and diet. Their earlier two attempts failed because of vocal public opposition. In 2017 Labour opted for a prohibited list of 300 common herbal ingredients ( for some of these see photo):


Control of Our Food Supply

It won’t have escaped your notice that many of these like Cinnamon and Mustard are currently sold in shops. So how on earth did they get onto a prohibited list? The answer lies in attempts to gain control of our food supply.

Natural products that are beneficial to health cannot be patented, but synthetic copies can be. To make this work, the products that grow in gardens need to be banned.

Labour and the Ministry of Health did not make this list up, the list was supplied by the International Coalition of Medicines Regulatory Authorities (ICMRA) of which Medsafe is a member. ICMRA is largely funded by the pharmaceutical industry whose interests they serve. You can read all about it in my book Your DNA Diet, available as a Kindle from Amazon or a hard copy from the Hatchard Report.

Labour says it has learned from prior public opposition. This time the Bill will not name any prohibited ingredients. Instead is an enabling bill, the type of legislation made famous by Adolf Hitler. The Bill establishes a new regulator headed by an independent statutory officer with a wide remit:

The new regulator will be responsible for ensuring the safety, quality, and efficacy of natural products. It will design and implement proportionate, risk-based market authorisation pathways. Its functions will include, in addition to market authorisation, licensing controlled activities, post-market surveillance, and compliance.

These services will be funded through levies on the industry which are liable to be costly. Government regulatory schemes mooted in the last two attempts were likely to push small players out of the market due to the cost of compliance, as happened as a result of the Food Bill.

Crucially the Bill also includes a range of modern enforcement tools allowing for a graduated and proportionate response to breaches, including tiered criminal offences, strict liability offences, improved infringement notices and a civil pecuniary penalty regime.

In other words, the Bill appoints a new, as yet, unnamed regulator who is being empowered to do whatever he thinks fit to control the manufacture and availability of supplements. He could and is, in fact, very likely to publish a list of banned herbal ingredients soon after his appointment. The list is ready to go from the ICMRA database connected to Medsafe, courtesy of the pharmaceutical industry.

If we wish to be able to continue to freely chose herbal medicines and supplements without government interference, we will need to speak up. Go to this link to make a submission before February 15th. Write to your MP and complain that the appointment of a regulator amounts to an open ended blank cheque to control the use of products used by more than 50% of our population without fully specifying the principles he should use.

Natural Health Products – More Government Overreach!

How will the 2023 Therapeutic Products Bill affect the Availability of Natural Health Products?

Breaking News: New Zealand Govt Report Admits You May Die or Fall Ill After Pfizer mRNA Vaccination … But Does Advise People Not to Worry

Time series analysis of New Zealand data supports a relationship between mRNA vaccination and death that is consistent with a German autopsy study.

On 14th December 2022, Medsafe (NZ Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Authority) released its 46th report into the safety of Covid vaccines entitled “Adverse events following immunisation with COVID-19 vaccines”. The report covered safety signals up to 30th November 2022.

This report contained new advice about the risk of death following mRNA vaccination. Medsafe’s assessment began as follows:

By chance, some people will experience new illnesses or die from a pre-existing condition shortly after vaccination, especially if they are elderly. Therefore, part of our review process includes comparing natural death rates to observed death rates following vaccination, to determine if there are any specific trends or patterns that might indicate a vaccine safety concern.”

The report comes after months of speculation concerning record levels of excess all cause mortality in New Zealand affecting all ages, currently running at 15% above historical levels.

After dropping the bombshell news, Medsafe goes through an entirely bogus and unscientific process designed to reassure the public that there is nothing to worry about. Medsafe compares the number of deaths reported to CARM (Centre for Adverse Reactions Monitoring) within 21 days of vaccination to the background rate of deaths from natural causes. In doing so, it omits to mention (but does so elsewhere) that CARM reports are voluntary and massively underreported by an estimated factor of 20 times. As a result there is nothing at all reassuring about this safety report.

Are There Other Reasons to Be Concerned? Yes, Many:

1. Medsafe reports, “There have been no deaths reported for the Vaxzevria or Nuvaxovid vaccines.” So why are they happening after the Pfizer vaccine?

2. Autopsies are not routinely performed in New Zealand following deaths proximate to vaccination. A recently published German study Autopsy-based histopathological characterization of myocarditis after anti-SARS-CoV-2-vaccination reports 16% of deaths within 20 days of mRNA vaccination exhibit definitive causal symptoms of acute myocarditis, a known adverse effect of Pfizer Covid vaccination. So why is there no concerted effort here in NZ to investigate by routinely performing autopsies?

3. The Ministry of Health has consistently refused/omitted to record vaccine status on death certificates or make CARM reporting mandatory. This makes it very difficult to scientifically and reliably investigate any causal relationship between mRNA vaccination and death or serious illness. On the 17th December 2021 the director of the Covid immunisation programme wrote to me on behalf of Dr. Ashley Bloomfield, Director General of Health, saying “An accurate measurement of all adverse events is not required”.

In the light of today’s Medsafe admission, that’s damning. Incredibly Dr. Bloomfield has just been appointed the inaugural chair of a new public policy impact institute at the University of Auckland, proposing to translate and apply research into policies that directly impact communities—but he doesn’t subscribe to accuracy??? Most people do, especially academics.

4. Medsafe argues that temporal correlation between deaths and vaccination does not prove a causal relationship between them. They, along with epidemiologist Professor Michael Baker, suggest that Covid infection or pre-existing health conditions are more likely to be causally connected to deaths following vaccination. There are in fact other relevant analyses which can determine whether there is a relationship between mRNA vaccination and proximate deaths. Among these, powerful techniques of time series analysis can discover whether deaths are consistently occurring during specific intervals of time after vaccination. This would provide strong support for a causal relationship.

Among the world’s nations, New Zealand is in a unique position to undertake this sort of analysis. In 2021 New Zealand had very few Covid infections (almost none) but the majority of the population were vaccinated over a period of eight months. Therefore deaths recorded during much of 2021 in New Zealand cannot be ascribed to any effect of Covid infection.

Preliminary data from 2021 has been analysed to investigate the proposition that mRNA vaccination resulted in deaths. This shows there is a significant (p=0.045) relationship between number of vaccines administered by week and weekly deaths at a lag of one week. In other words, there is a statistically significant increased chance of dying within a few days of vaccination. Download the study here. Despite the preliminary nature of the data in this study, the findings of this study are consistent with the findings of German autopsies. Therefore there should be more rigorous study of stored data to further test these findings

There are other simple methods to analyse death data. For example taking the date of inoculation for each individual as a notional point in time around which all death data can be assessed for entire cohorts of individuals. This would reveal whether death rates before and after inoculation differ.

5. The time series analysis does not preclude the possibility that other deaths at longer time intervals after an inoculation date may be occurring as a result of mRNA vaccination. Unprecedented rates of all cause mortality suggest this is likely to be the case. Unfortunately, the New Zealand Ministry of Health is not releasing data on causes of hospitalisation by category of illness. There is evidence we have previously reported based on US defence personal data and insurance statistics, and on UK ONS data, indicating that incidence of neurological disorders, cancers, cardiac events, and strokes have increased.

Medsafe’s position on vaccine safety has clearly shifted during the two months since it last published a safety report, but has it realised the importance of more reliable causal assessments? Apparently not. The NZ public is being kept in the dark about vaccine safety as it has been for the last two years. Bland assurances of safety continue without foundation in fact.

Can mRNA Vaccination Be a Trigger Event for Death if You Are Already Sick or Elderly?

The wording of the December 14th Medsafe warning is strange and ambiguous: “..some people will experience new illnesses or die from a pre-existing condition shortly after vaccination, especially if they are elderly”. So are the elderly especially liable to die after vaccination because of vaccination or because they are elderly? We aren’t told.

Aside from the obviously elevated rates of excess all cause deaths, anecdotal reports from rest home staff suggest this is the case. Emergency vehicles and helicopters are answering more frequent calls. Hospitals are overwhelmed and unable to cope. Whistleblowers among nurses are talking about overflowing cardiac wards. A top UK cardiologist has suggested that the evidence of harm is overwhelming and irrefutable. Funeral home workers in New Zealand and overseas have spoken publicly about strange rubbery clots in arteries which have been confirmed by experienced pathologists in the USA. Statistically improbable increases in life insurance claims data have been noted. Sudden unexplained deaths have a high profile in the media. The message is consistent—something unprecedented and very concerning is going on.

Despite having multiple sources of data and methods of analysis available to it. Medsafe has relied for two years on a single obviously flawed method of comparing CARM data to background rates, despite admitting CARM data is underreported. How strange is that? This deficiency is fatal to Medsafe’s claims of safety. It is scientifically unjustifiable and it wouldn’t meet publication criteria.

There is no possible justification for omitting to use more reliable forms of causal investigation. Medsafe has avoided public accountability by refusing to debate the issues publicly, omitting publication of key health data, massaging published data, and unforgivably accusing critics of spreading disinformation. These approaches are worthy of a dictatorship but not a modern democracy.

Can you help the REAL (aka raw) milk farmers?

I was forwarded an email recently appealing for help for these farmers. Those who buy real milk aka by the newbies as ‘raw’ (ie non-treated to the extent all the goodness has gone) will be aware of the tough time these farmers have had in recent years as the system imposes more and more costs to stay afloat. Not difficult to see the agenda in light of the push toward fake food world wide. I’m copying their letter below (or see info at the link). If you are able to help I know that will be gratefully appreciated. EWR

From westonaprice.org

The New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industry (MPI) has brought criminal charges against as many as 16 farmers for violations of that country’s Raw Milk for Sale to Consumers Regulations 2015 (the “2015 regulations”). As far as is known, none of the cases have actually gone to trial. At least five farmers have settled their cases by pleading guilty to a reduced number of charges and agreed to pay fines of as much as $50,000; in two other court actions where the farmers had plead guilty to violations of the raw milk laws, judges discharged the cases without convictions. Most of these farmers, whether or not they had to pay fines, owe tens of thousands of dollars in attorney fees. Of these seven farmers, only one remains in the business of selling raw milk for human consumption. An attorney representing one of the farmers has been unable to find evidence that any of the charged farmers made anyone ill with the milk they produced.

ACTION TO TAKE

A GiveSendGo fund has been set up to help pay legal expenses for five of the prosecuted farmers (listed on the fund page). None of these farmers became rich selling raw milk—they were dedicated to producing healthy food for their customers and community. Please be there for them and help the farmers recover some of the losses they have suffered due to the unjust government enforcement actions.

To donate please go to this link, https://www.givesendgo.com/G9HAN

Thanks for whatever help you can give.

MORE BACKGROUND

The 2015 regulations were the catalyst for the prosecution against the dairies. The farmers are being prosecuted for a violation of laws designed to put them out of business. In addition to having to register with MPI, dairy farmers under the new regulations are required to:

The 2015 regulations had little to do with science and protecting the public health. Many farmers, believing that they would not be able to afford the cost of compliance with the new rules, distributed milk through contractual arrangements such as limited partnerships and herdshare agreements—arrangements they thought would exempt them from the new rules. When MPI saw that not many farms were registering, it launched a sting operation, “Operation Caravan”, against the unregistered raw milk farmers, leading to the ongoing criminal prosecutions.

The 2015 regulations have been a big success for MPI in driving raw milk farmers out of business. Shortly before the ministry issued the new regulations, there were upwards of 200 dairies selling raw milk; today there are around 25.

NZ’s Baby Will Taken from his parents (updated)

From Liz Gunn @ FreeNZ Media

UPDATE NOTE: Baby Will is now out of Surgery and doing well in recovery. See note below.

Statement by Cole & Sam – 9th Dec 2022

The NZ Govt, Starship Hospital and the NZ Police removed Baby Will from his parents last night, prior to his op. Any person with half a brain cell will know that such stress as a violent and loud separation from his breast feeding mother is not conducive to his well being pre-op, aside from any other concerns posed by the authorities. He was even denied the cuddle of his mother all night. Watch at the link … a very difficult watch. EWR

Video comment:

Night of Thursday 8th Dec:
Sam was not allowed to hold Will all night.
She was not allowed to cuddle him.

She was also not allowed to sleep all night, as she was told that if she did any of this, she would be forcibly removed back to the ward, from the pre-op room, and would not see the baby before the operation. There were four guards in the room.

The traumatic way in which this situation has been treated does not make sense.

Baby Will was not allowed to be held by his mother all night.

Please send your love and prayers to him.

Now repealed, the amended Covid-19 Public Health Response Bill basically nullified many aspects of NZ’s Bill of Rights

Note: I withdrew an earlier post on this topic, as Martin Harris from Uncensored kindly corrected me on the fact that the Bill had been repealed. However, I am reposting the item in revised form for the following reasons

At the time this amendment passed in Parliament there was great consternation (and understandably) about our impending loss of freedoms. Although, as pointed out, it has now been repealed, I do not see this as now history.

A few months back we posted an article on bomb scares in NZ schools, several in fact, that alluded to the powers of the Department of Education in such an event & I quote:

If a disease is classified as notifiable, this means health practitioners and laboratories are required to notify Medical Officers of Health of cases of a notifiable disease.

Medical Officers of Health then have powers to manage the disease on a case-by-case basis, including the ability to:

  • formally initiate contact tracing of contacts of cases of coronavirus
  • issue mandatory directions such as restricting movement and travel
  • apply for court orders such as for treatment
  • issue administrative 72-hour detention orders (urgent public health orders).

If you read the article you will see that indeed parents were separated from their children, one parent marched off school grounds by law enforcement.

Another item of interest that floats on the periphery is that of advertisements seen in May/June this year by NZSIS for surveillance officers and more recently in November, for contact tracers.

In light of the above plus other developments at G20 around the introduction of vaccine passports, I consider it pertinent to be very watchful.

Below is the original piece posted earlier, including Martin Harris’s information on the repeal of the amendment:


The COVID-19 Public Health Response Bill (read it and check for yourself) gives the Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern the power to decide when the new rules must …

Martin Harris wrote: “The bill is repealed two years following its enactment and this has already been enabled, thus it is no longer in effect.
Part 1
Preliminary provisions
3 Repeal of this Act
This Act is repealed on the earlier of—
(a) the date that is 2 years after the date of its commencement; and
(b) a date appointed by the Governor-General by Order in Council.”

For those of you who have your eye on the ball so to speak, these are job opportunities not commonly seen in our ‘freedom loving democracy’ of NZ. Any items concerning surveillance are generally described as necessary for the safety of citizens. Not too many years ago this site and others were being watched by a security agency contracted by DoC.

Description

Do you:

  • lead by example and have a hands-on approach to team success?
  • drive collaboration and find pathways to achieve successful outcomes?

The NZSIS Operational Solutions Unit is seeking Operational Capability Officers. Our OCOs are at the forefront of leading the delivery of new or improved operational capabilities to ensure that NZSIS collection efforts are effective, relevant and sustainable in a fast changing world.

The role:

What do we mean by operational capability? For us, it is the ability for our people to achieve operational objectives. Those objectives may involve work such as the successful use of technical and digital capabilities, management of human sources, and better exploitation of data or deployment of surveillance assets. The primary people we enable are our NZSIS intelligence operators.

Success in this role would see you delivering operational capability that gives staff better intelligence from existing and new accesses, or even from targets that were previously too hard.

The two main areas of work are:

  • developing, maintaining and enhancing productive relationships with partners in pursuit of generating enhanced operational capability;
  • establishing and undertaking research, development, coordination, delivery and integration to ensure our operational units are best equipped to conduct intelligence operations.

OCOs can work across both of these areas but may express preference for a specific team. Roles are based in Wellington and Auckland.

To be successful in this role you will be:

  • collaborative and willing to use your initiative to deliver operational capability work streams in a new and growing team;
  • at the forefront of implementing and embedding new processes and systems, and continuously improving them;
  • ensuring processes are fit for purpose leading to the delivery of genuinely new innovative operational capability that balances assurance and rapid implementation for our operational staff;
  • flexible and adaptable, contributing your intelligence background and problem solving aptitude to helping shape how we deliver new operational capability;
  • working on multiple varied workstreams – which might be centred around new equipment, a new relationship, new policy or agreement, or even a new way of collaboration – all in the pursuit of enhanced operational capability.

The ideal candidate will drive innovation and be able to multi-task and plan. You will enjoy working under pressure and have pride in delivering solutions that directly enable our operational staff. This role works alongside, and has access to, a new team of like-minded colleagues who will have significant input in deciding the best way, or alternative ways, to deliver. Additionally, you will build a strong level of trust with established teams and become a respected knowledge source and problem solver.

Key attributes:

  • Driven to collaborate, partner and independently plan and deliver on work streams
  • Be prepared to travel domestically and internationally in pursuit of operational capability planning or relationship building
  • A dedicated, highly motivated team member displaying initiative and willing attitude
  • Comfortable with breaking new ground, change and embedding new processes and systems
  • Your background should include experience in an intelligence context, operational /project management or planning, exposure to intelligence collection, relationship management and problem solving

What we offer:

A range of benefits that include professional development and working with a group of people who are passionate about protecting and advancing New Zealand’s way of life. The work is interesting and most importantly, the outcomes from your work will have a direct impact on the security and well-being of New Zealand.

What Kiwis need to know about the shutting down of the Marsden Point Oil Refinery

From Liz Gunn @ Youtube:

EWR comment: note you can read the info & download the report at website link below. The interview however is more in depth.

We speak with David Trotter (lead researcher and author) & Levi Wulf (sub researcher and editor), who along with Karl Barkley (nautical tracking and sub research), have put together this excellent document which highlights the problems associated with shutting down the Marsden Point Oil Refinery in Whangarei. Operation Good Oil seeks to educate and inform Kiwis, through this document, of the true nature of this crisis, and seeks to find a practical solution for the good of all Kiwis.

From the Website: http://www.operationgoodoil.co.nz

“Our refinery was numbered in the top 10% of the world for its innovation and efficiency, with new technologies coming on line in the sector of oil refinement we are about to lose our ability to lab and beta test new techniques of recycling such as blue crude and plastic to oil recovery.

NEW ZEALAND HAS THE LONGEST SUPPLY LINES IN THE WORLD AND TO SCUTTLE SUCH A VITAL STRATEGIC ASSET AS OUR ONLY OIL REFINERY IS A MOVE THAT COULD BE CONSTRUED AS AN ACT OF AGGRESSION OR EVEN TREASONOUS AGAINST THE PEOPLE OF NEW ZEALAND.

We hope you join us in educating ourselves on what is truly happening in the energy sector in this nation and that you will read the updates and the resources that we will be releasing through our social media and website, we hope to help to spread the word about who and what are truly responsible for the shortages.”

Kiwis were warned away back in the ’80s about the coming destruction of the farming sector. See the writings and videos of late NZ evangelist and investigative author Barry Smith who worked out their plan long before it was ever in the news. He was called a nutter back then. The same as we following in the past two decades have been. Not a conspiracy theory any more. It’s cold hard fact. EWR

Overseas rates of cancer, cardiac events & respiratory conditions are up, yet NZ figures are not being made available… Why?

From hatchardreport.com

In 1923 three of America’s largest corporations formed a company to add tetraethyl lead to petrol. They omitted to mention it included lead and simply called their additive ‘ethyl’.

Almost immediately, production workers began to exhibit the discoordination and confusion that mark those severely poisoned by lead. Bill Bryson records that almost immediately, the Ethyl Corporation embarked on a global policy of calm but unyielding denial that would serve it well for decades.

In 2020 the world’s largest pharmaceutical corporations introduced biotech experimental injections derived from risky gene therapy research, they called them ‘vaccines’ because vaccines are universally recognised as safe and effective. Their products were neither. Even early recipients had high rates of injury, death, and pregnancy complications. Simultaneously, the manufacturing corporations obfuscated and hid this data and launched a global campaign of public relations and political lobbying on a scale never before seen in the field of public health.

If you think this is a conspiracy theory, think again. Time you looked at our Ministry of Health statistics with an open mind.

The latest MoH data on Covid deaths shows that 53% of the New Zealand population are boosted but account for 71% of Covid deaths, whereas 16% are unvaccinated and account for just 12% of deaths.

Still births per 1,000 in 2021 are up 10% compared to pre-pandemic rates and our birth rate per 1,000 population is down 10%.

Our hospitals and emergency services are still overwhelmed and no one knows quite why. Overseas rates of cancer, cardiac events, and respiratory conditions are up where data is published, but the New Zealand figures are not being made available. Why?

All cause mortality has reached record levels in 2022, at one point 26% above historical levels. The number of excess all-cause deaths greatly exceeds the number attributed to Covid.

Dr Helen Petousis-Harris, New Zealand’s leading vaccinologist, in an interview on 11th October with Radio New Zealand said:

I wouldn’t be running out to get myself boosted. I don’t think it would be particularly useful. I don’t see any evidence to suggest it is going to benefit me.”

HEAR AUDIO AT THE LINK

And yet MPs are sitting and considering a Bill to allow coroners to avoid recording a cause of death, while MoH is gearing up to regularise mRNA vaccination. In other words, parliament feels that less investigation is called for, not more. Why?

You are possibly also unaware that the origins of the Covid virus are increasingly well understood. A published scientific study has uncovered multiple microbiological signatures of synthetic genetic splicing in the Covid viral DNA, while even heavily pro-vaccine publications like Propublica have located a smoking gun in Chinese documents. Covid-19 came from a lab accident in Wuhan.

I needn’t remind you that the lab leak origin of Covid was labelled a conspiracy theory last year by Te Punaha Matatini. Nor that government with cross party support has poured millions into saturation advertising and MSM coverage telling the public that mRNA technology is safe and effective. It isn’t.

Little has been said recently about the Ardern doctrine that the government should be ‘our one source of truth’. The folly and naivete of this pronouncement from the lectern is now obvious. Science is a process that cannot be rushed to conclusions, it can only be based on evidence. We should not have insisted that the whole population be coerced to participate in experimental biotech interventions.

The purchase agreement we signed with Pfizer included the rider that the government acknowledges that the long term outcome of mRNA vaccination is unknown. The implications of this never filtered down into our pandemic policy. The government chose to endorse safety without evidence. The long term health outcomes of mRNA vaccination and pandemic policy remain unknown.

Repeated representations to government to include vaccination status on death certificates have been ignored. Without this, meaningful research into the effect of pandemic policies is impossible. The implication of a cover up is hard to avoid.

The absence of meaningful public debate, the suppression of a free press, the cancellation of dissenting expert opinion, and the politicisation of science are all hallmarks of a repressive state overreaching itself. It does no credit to New Zealand and endangers the future of our civil society. Time to wake up.

Take a stand against that ridiculous fart tax! (petition)

It does have a fancier name but why give them the ‘honour’ of using it? It’s just another step towards reducing the food supply (watch this video on that topic if you think that’s ‘conspiracy’). It’s part of Agenda 21 /30’s so called ‘great reset’ where we’ll own nothing and be happy. Well so they wish anyway. Klaus, Bill and their little band of so called ‘elites’ (not).

It is worth a try anyway to sign the petition… bearing in mind that the NZ corporation parading as a government tends to ignore the wishes of thousands of its tax payers because we are not a democracy after all. EWR

(Note my sentiments here expressed are not necessarily those of the Groundswell movement. However, destroying farming will definitely affect us all).

Here is the End Game Hiding Behind the Fart Tax

Speaking at the UN, NZ’s PM Ardern Has Called For A Global Censorship System

This is not a new idea. Ardern has been saying for a good while now, since the plandemic in particular, that she and her government are our single source of truth.

She is serious about that. At one point she even told Kiwis not to speak to their neighbours. This all of course flies in the face of community and caring and looks not unlike fascism … parading under the guise of protecting our physical health. No problem however with the rise in numbers of child suicides. That has been sorted however by changing the definition of suicide to ‘accidental death’. And no move towards investigating the rise in NZ’s all cause mortality rate or any possible correlation it may have with the jab rollout. Apart from a recent admission by NZ’s vaccine expert Helen Petousis Harris, that they perhaps didn’t warn us well enough of a possible Myocarditis risk. This also followed a coroner’s ruling that a New Zealander’s death one year ago was caused by the jab. That has been followed by a Bill in Parliament as I write, to tweak the requirements around coroners’ investigations as to ’cause of death’. They are overwhelmed it seems by the sheer numbers of deaths so appear to be attempting to fast track the process.

So Ardern, who is one of Schwab’s global leaders remember, speaks of a need to double down globally on censorship. The perceived need is to censor ‘disinformation’. Could that disinfo include uncomfortable truths like the plight of those who fell ill or died post jab? There were many of those there at the Parliament protest earlier in 2022, totally ignored … ‘kind’ Ardern declined to speak with any of them. Not one, and there were even Medical Doctors there speaking out. She did eventually show her face however, once the protest was disbanded.

It is a global reset the WEF want. By all appearances a dystopian world couched in the kindly terms of ‘being happy’ … but ‘owning nothing’.

Difficult to fathom really isn’t it? That they would actually expect us to see this as a good thing? Even Italy’s PM is resisting.


Below is an article on topic from zerohedge.com

Authored by Jonathan Turley,

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is the latest liberal leader to call for an international alliance to censor speech. Unsatisfied with the unprecedented corporate censorship of social media companies, leaders like Hillary Clinton have turned from private censorship to good old-fashioned state censorship. Speech regulation has become an article of faith on the left. Ardern used her speech this week to the United Nations General Assembly to call for censorship on a global scale.

Ardern lashed out at “disinformation” and called for a global coalition to control speech. After nodding toward free speech, she proceeded to lay out a plan for its demise through government regulation:

But what if that lie, told repeatedly, and across many platforms, prompts, inspires, or motivates others to take up arms. To threaten the security of others. To turn a blind eye to atrocities, or worse, to become complicit in them. What then?

This is no longer a hypothetical. The weapons of war have changed, they are upon us and require the same level of action and activity that we put into the weapons of old.

We recognized the threats that the old weapons created. We came together as communities to minimize these threats. We created international rules, norms and expectations. We never saw that as a threat to our individual liberties – rather, it was a preservation of them. The same must apply now as we take on these new challenges.

Ardern noted how extremists use speech to spread lies without noting that non-extremists use the same free speech to counter such views.   To answer her question on “how do you tackle climate change if people do not believe it exists” is that you convince people using the same free speech.  Instead, Ardern appears to want to silence those who have doubts.
While referring to a global censorship coalition as a “light-touch approach to disinformation,” Ardern revealed how sweeping such a system would likely be. She defended the need for such global censorship on having to combat those who question climate change and the need to stop “hateful and dangerous rhetoric and ideology.”

“After all, how do you successfully end a war if people are led to believe the reason for its existence is not only legal but noble? How do you tackle climate change if people do not believe it exists? How do you ensure the human rights of others are upheld, when they are subjected to hateful and dangerous rhetoric and ideology?”

That is the same rationale used by authoritarian countries like China, Iran, and Russia to censor dissidents, minority groups, and political rivals.  What is “hateful” and “dangerous” is a fluid concept that government have historically used to silence critics or dissenters.
Ardern is the smiling face of the new generation of censors. At least the old generation of censors like the Iranians do not pretend to support free speech and openly admit that they are crushing dissent. The point is that we need to be equally on guard when censorship is pushed from the left with the best of motivations and the worst of means.
As the great civil libertarian Justice Louis Brandeis once said, “the greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.”

NZ & FURTHER PROPOSED SNA LAND GRABS: 1500 West Coast property owners recently received letters in the mail, out of the blue, stating that their properties have been zoned for takeover by state control with restrictions taking immediate legal effect

Must read article on topic: SNAs (Significant Natural Areas) and what they are really about


This statement was posted at facebook by Groundswell NZ

State takeover of private land accelerates – Statement by Groundswell NZ

Anyone that owns, leases, or manages property or land in New Zealand, both urban and rural, should be very concerned about the latest developments on the West Coast. That is the message from Groundswell NZ, after over 1500 West Coast property owners received letters in the mail, out of the blue, stating that their properties had been zoned for takeover by state control and that restrictions would take immediate legal effect. There was no consultation with affected property owners and no compensation for loss of use or drop in property value. Property owners have been left in a state of shock and angry at the lack of respect and fair process.

This takeover of private land came about after the four West Coast councils released a combined district plan last week, called Te Tai o Poutini. The zonings include sites of significance to Maori, historic areas, outstanding natural landscapes, and significant natural areas (SNAs). Both urban and rural residents are impacted.

In taking this draconian action, the councils have now turned anything that has cultural, historic, or natural value into a liability. Would you want any of these features on your property if it would make you vulnerable to losing the use of your land and the resulting drop in the value of your property?

This state takeover of private land is accelerating throughout New Zealand, as local councils are being forced by Government directive to enforce unworkable regulations. The raft of ill-conceived regulations coming out of Wellington is causing considerable stress and anxiety for the thousands of people caught up by the legislation. This is the main reason Groundswell NZ started campaigning.

Groundswell NZ are calling for the West Coast councils to immediately withdraw the Te Tai o Poutini plan and to support their communities in lobbying the Government for workable legislation that focuses on achieving positive environmental outcomes, while working with and respecting the rights of people and communities.

Note from EWR: Peter Williams touched on this topic on Magic Talk Radio (before he unexpectedly left his position there). He raised the logical questions folk are asking as the above statement indicates. However asking questions of government has swiftly become a big no-no. Only one source of truth allowed. See our previous articles on topic here with a link to the Northland mapping of SNAs for your perusal. For your own region go to your own council website. The second article cites protests in Northland where similar letters had been sent. Last I heard they council had backed up on it. Something to watch carefully and clearly kicking up has had results. Links to the articles below:

Significant Natural Areas (SNAs): How NZ Cities Are Implementing Agenda 21 and the American Wildlands Project

SNAs (Significant Natural Areas) and what they are really about

The second article also cites Barbara McKenzie’s excellent research on topic. It features at her site titled Sto Vouno.

A final note, land grabs by governments are not new. As most indigenous folk know. It has been a reality of their existence for a very long time. Here in NZ, century before last, indigenous who did not want to sell their lands were deemed ‘rebels’ (via a government Act) and their lands were confiscated. Thereby NZ Māori lost no less than 6 million acres. That was just via confiscations. Government employed other means also. Those histories are generally little known unfortunately. Hence when told about them folk commonly won’t believe them. A source of much division and angst. I personally have heard more than one first hand example.

Ironically (or should that be strategically?) the rationale for this robbery is Agenda 21/30 speak … ‘biodiversity’ and ‘areas of significance to Māori’. Not all of us are fooled by the hypocrisy we’ve seen for more than three decades now. The professions of sustainability on council websites are belied by the widespread pollution (& cover up) that is still going on. Since the inception of Agenda 21 our waterways are more polluted, homelessness up, poverty up, unemployment up, debt up, and on it goes. (See our Local Government Watch pages, main menu).

House arrest means no swimming, no phones, no working from home, no leaving home even. This is since July 2021, all for declining the NZ Govt’s ‘gift’ of the (untested) Pfizer jab. The option to work from home was removed after the second round of the ‘free jab’.

In 1962, Samoa became the first Pacific Island Nation to move from being New Zealand administered to self-governing successfully. An entity with a Samoan administration, endorsed by the United Nations and made up entirely of qualified Samoans.

It is easy to get caught up in the moment. Samoans are so proud of our independent status among the nations of the World, and as a fellow Samoan, I can’t help but share in that same sense of pride and accomplishment. Today, in New Zealand, we commemorate this auspicious moment in Samoan history by celebrating an entire week of Samoan-themed activities known collectively as Samoan Language Week.

But what if Samoa never gained its Independence from New Zealand?

How would that change things in our relationship with New Zealand or with fellow Kiwis?

I do not know the answer to that question, but there is one Pacific island nation out there today that is still under the administration of the New Zealand government. And this nation is where a travesty of freedom has taken place. A mockery of liberty that, in my opinion, can only be traced back to the COVID–19 policies of the Jacinda Ardern-led Labour/Greens coalition government.

That Pacific island nation is Tokelau and knowing what is currently taking place there has put a significant damper on Samoan Language Week for me.

Who can celebrate Freedom and Independence when your Pacific neighbour cannot celebrate with you?

Tokelau and Samoa are more than just neighbours; they are family, aiga. Indeed, the only way to access Tokelau is by a 20-hour boat trip from Samoa.

As one of the Talanoa Sa’o program hosts, I am always on the lookout for Pacifica stories of interest to discuss. Hearing about Tokelauans being placed under House Arrest for refusing the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine immediately caught my attention.

Predators Are Not Evil But are Mostly Part of Healthy Ecosystems

Opinion by Tony Orman

New Zealand has for many decades waged a war against predators. Currently there are a number of anti-predator campaigns, often using public money in big spend-ups on futile aerial poisoning exercises. In addition, in the end, the blanket operations run counter to the impassioned aim of exterminating predators (e.g. rats) and instead cause major disruption to food chains and serious damage to the ecosystem. For example there is Predator Free 2050, and Zero Invasive Predators, the latter jazzily known by the acronym of ZIP. The zealous programmes have earned international recognition.“Time” magazine which proclaimed “Rats, Possums and Stoats Beware! New Zealand Goes to War Against Invasive Pests.” But the programmes are like the 1837 Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale “The Emperor’s New Clothes”. At one stage in the fable, the wise man serving the Emperor thinks “What!” “Is it possible that I am a fool? I have never thought so myself. No one must know it now if I am so. Can it be, that I am unfit for my job?”Those questions should be asked of those who champion Predator Free 2050 and ZIP – people from Prime Ministers to central and local government politicians, local bodies, naive unquestioning media whoop as investigative journalists, extreme green groups and even unprincipled “scientists” following the money trail of funding all pursuing the dream of exterminating New Zealand’s predators. However the reality is the dreams are running against the way Nature behaves.

Predator Role
Wildlife mangers overseas are increasingly regarding predators as an important part of a healthy ecosystem. In 2014 Al S Glen of New Zealand’s Landcare Research and Christopher Dickman of Sydney University co-authored a book on “Carnivores of Australia” and in a chapter “The Importance of Predators” said “to maintain or restore functioning ecosystems, wildlife managers must consider the ecological importance of predators.” This is hardly a new idea. Charles Elton, an Oxford ecologist, first conceptualised food webs in the 1920s, speculating that wolf removal would result in over-population of deer on which wolves preyed. The notion was taken up by others such as highly respected conservationist and author Aldo Leopold. Predators tend to remove vulnerable prey, such as the old, injured, sick, or very young, leaving more food for the survival and success of healthy prey animals. Also, by controlling the size of prey populations, predators help slow down the spread of disease. Predators will catch healthy prey when they can, but catching sick or injured animals is more likely and helps in the formation of healthier prey populations because only the fittest animals survive and are able to reproduce. In addition, predators help to reduce the negative impacts that their prey may have on the ecosystem if they become too abundant or it they stayed in one area for too long. Biologists have recognised predators like cheetahs prey on grazing animals like antelope, it keeps the prey population moving around (in fear) and prevents overgrazing in any one area. As a result, more trees, shrubs, bushes, and grasses can grow, which then provides habitat for many other species.

Predator Removal Dangers
If carnivores were removed from an ecosystem, what would happen? Herds of grazing animals, such as antelope, would grow and grow and result, in large herds overgrazing their food source, and as the food disappeared, the whole herd would begin to starve. Caroline Fraser writing for the US’s Yale School of the Environment  said experts “beginning with aquatic experiments, have amassed considerable evidence of damage done to food chains by predator removal and have extended such studies to land.” Predators are simply a part of any ecosystem’s food chain. New Zealand’s native falcon prey on other native birds such as tuis and bellbirds. Blue duck (whio) prey almost entirely on aquatic invertebrates, mostly caddisfly larvae. Kiwi prey on worms. When animals of a predatory nature are introduced such as rats and stoats were to New Zealand, they go through a “boom and bust” phase before their populations settle down to a relatively static state.  Unfortunately, native prey species can become drastically reduced or even extinct as a result of the predator “boom”.  The critical aspect of managing this situation is avoiding predator “booms”.  Consequently,the fervour and haste which the Department of Conservation and local councils applies with toxins is reckless and fraught with ecological danger.

Disastrous Outcomes
Large scale poisoning with eco-toxins such as 1080 and brodifacoum may heavily reduce predator numbers initially but with a few short years, the outcome is disastrous. The science is there to show the resurgence in predator numbers and subsequent wrecking of the food chain.  Wendy Ruscoe in a study published in Landcare Research’s publication 2008 showed aerial dropping of 1080 will temporarily knock back a rat population but due to the rodent’s amazing reproductive capacity, the surviving rats recover rapidly and within 18 months, are two to three times greater than before poisoning began. A 2007 study by Landcare scientists Graham Nugent and Peter Sweetapple showed rat numbers recovered within 18 months and at the two year mark, rat abundance could be four times greater than before poisoning.

Stoat Prey
The disruption to the naive ecosystem ripples further.  A major prey for stoats is rats.  When rat numbers are reduced by 80% – 90%, the stoat deprived of its major food source, invariably switches prey to birds. But later as rat numbers surge and boom and pass original numbers, stoats enjoy a virtual banquet of rats, breeding increases and surges and then explodes.The well intentioned but ignorant predator extermination programme usually using 1080, has merely stimulated, within a few short years, major population explosions of rats and stoats. Attempting to poison-away rodent surges in beech-mast years is the ecological equivalent of farting against thunder. All this does (if anything) is delay the inevitable, as the fast-breeding ability of rodents will eventually allow population growth to match the food source. Rather than benefiting the birds and overall ecological health, there is massive ecological disruption by the man-induced mega rat and stoat plagues.

Ecological Damage
That is not counting the birds and insects and other invertebrate organisms killed by 1080 as research demonstrated, by DSIR scientist Mike Meads, in the 1980’s.  1080 was originally patented as an insecticide in 1927. Examples are many of human interference directly or indirectly into Nature’s food chains resulting in profound consequences. In a classic 1966 experiment, biologist Robert Paine removed the purple seastar, Pisaster ochraceus — a voracious mussel-feeder — from an area of coastline in Washington state. Their predator gone, mussels exploded in numbers, crowding out biodiverse kelp communities with monoculture. Less than a decade after Pisaster, marine ecologists James Estes and John Palmisano reached the astonishing and widely reported conclusion that hunting of sea otters had caused the collapse of kelp forests around the Aleutian Islands. With otters reduced to low levels, the prey (sea urchins) stripped the kelp forests. When otters eventually returned, they regulated urchins, allowing “luxuriant” regrowth of biodiverse kelp communities.

Toheroa Decline
In New Zealand, the decline of the toheroa shellfish was attributed unofficially to heavy over-fishing of snapper which preyed on paddle crabs which in turn preyed on toheroa. With the heavy decline in snapper, paddle crabs proliferated and almost obliterated toheroas. New Zealand has a long history of an obsession with attempted extermination of predators. In the 1950s acclimatisation societies managing trout fisheries blamed freshwater eels and shags for perceived declines in trout numbers. Bounties were paid out on eels. It had little effect. Ironically the best trout fishing rivers had healthy populations of both trout and eels. Eels simply removed the sick, the old or the unwary thus making for a quality trout population. The concept of being ”predator free” or “zero predators” has no ecological justification, except in limited circumstances on smaller offshore islands and “mainland islands”. Even in islands where predators may have been eliminated e.g. Secretary Island in Fiordland, the success is short-lived and temporary as animals can and do swim from the mainland to recolonise.

Playing God
It seem incomprehensible that an agency such as the Department of Conservation and the Predator Free 2050 and ZIP concepts should go unquestioned in the light of the understanding internationally of the dangers of playing God with predators..But the ‘fly in the ointment’ is human nature.  For example a scientist in DOC arguably has a vested interest by way of employment and a handsome salary. Similarly with any consulting scientist attached to Predator Free 2050 and ZIP. For others of zealous nature, as some humans are wont to be, it becomes the pursuit of “The Impossible Dream.”  For politicians it’s good P.R. to declare war on the baddies, no matter how pointless and damaging that might be. The sad outcomes are the gross misuse of public funds and more tragically the profound ecological damage that often occurs in the pursuit of that “Impossible Dream.”
