A worker is said to be in a hopeful condition in hospital, after a workplace incident involving chemicals in Christchurch

This all happened two weeks ago and has only just come to the public light. I wonder why?  Keep in mind the recent alarm sounded by Alan Gurden regarding the poison factory in Christchurch. EWR


12 June 2019

“The Institute for Environmental Science and Research is carrying out testing at Bromley’s Pest Control Research site, and WorkSafe is investigating.

The staff member was exposed to the chemicals two weeks ago at the site which handles, but doesn’t make, 1080 poison.

Research director at the site Matthew O’Brien says they’re supporting their worker.

He says they’re doing everything they can to support their man and his family, as well as to assist WorkSafe with their work.”  (Read more related links with videos below).

The dumping of the Class 1A Ecotoxin 1080 in NZ landfills & DoC’s in-house studies justifying it

From the NO to 1080 use in NZ Facebook page

Regarding the toxic landfill sites, more from the Greymouth Star, 10 August 2000:

From the article (image below):

“Manager of the 1080 pellet producing factory, Bill Simmons, said dumping 1080 was accepted as normal practice and there was no cause for alarm about a 22 tonne dump at Chesterfield, North of Hokitika. In Wanganui, we dumped 58 tonnes in a landfill. We lifted the bait out of the ground for assessing and in six months it had degraded by half and in 12 months it was barely detectable.”

And yet, in the SAME article, (quote)

“Scientific evidence says WATER does DESTROY 1080 and residue lasts no longer than 24 hours and it does say that after 4 inches of rain the baits are safe.”

So which is it? Does the poison ‘disappear’ after 24 hours, or hang around for over a year?

And who did that testing?

You guessed it, the New Zealand Dept of Conservation – the same people advocating its use. The conflicts of interest and the inadequate and conflicting outcomes from testing has been ongoing for decades.

1080 poison does not ‘breakdown quickly into harmless salt’ as per the propaganda. It takes a long time to break down and the process kills micro organisms that are essential for the complex ecosystems of our environment.

There is no antidote to 1080 poison. It is a known hormone disruptor and a single teaspoon of the toxic chemical can kill many adults. The sub lethal impact on many species, including humans, is entirely unknown.

SO WHICH IS IT? DOES THE POISON ‘DISAPPEAR’ AFTER 24 HOURS, OR HANG AROUND FOR OVER A YEAR?

Richard Healey says :

“Neither proposition is true. The science on this is pretty well established. Adding water to 1080 simply makes an aqueous solution. The lethality will not degrade… ever. The same can be said for contact with soils. What does eventually break down 1080 are microorganisms sometimes found in the environment.

Note the “sometimes”. In a set of laboratory experiments one researcher found that when he added 1080 to a mixture of soil and water (eight samples, from different sites around New Zealand) the lethality of the mixture gradually decayed over time. For three of the samples essentially no reduction in toxicity occurred. The breakdown rate was dramatically affected by sample temperature and slowed quickly as the temperature of the sample was reduced below 23 degrees.

1080 is biodegradable, given the presence of the right microorganisms, given the right temperature and given time. Remove any one of those three and it is a very persistent toxin indeed.

That’s precisely why DoC’s use of the phrase “biodegradable 1080“ is so dangerous, so irresponsible and so dishonest. Think of it as telling someone that it’s perfectly safe to jump out of an aeroplane – without first explaining that you should be wearing a parachute at the time.”

Weapons of War On Our Streets: A Guide to the Militarization of America’s Police

By Ammo.com

The claim often heard from those attempting to pass more gun control legislation is that all they’re trying to do is get the “weapons of war off our streets,” but it’s simply untrue that “weapons of war” are available to the general public. You’d last about three minutes in a conventional war with an AR-15, even with one of the most aggressive builds you can get your hands on (that doesn’t mean it’s impossible for guerilla uprisings to defeat powerful enemies). The truth is that the only people with “weapons of war” on America’s streets are, increasingly, the police.

Thanks primarily to the Pentagon’s 1033 program which allows law enforcement agencies to get their hands on Department of Defense technology and the Bush-era War on Terror, American police have received a startling amount of heavy-duty, military-grade hardware. Between 1998 and 2014, the dollar value of military hardware sent to police departments skyrocketed from $9.4 million to $796.8 million.

And just as when “all you’ve got is a hammer, then everything looks like a nail”, militarized police have become more willing to use their new weapons when carrying out law enforcement tasks. For example, the number of SWAT raids in the United States grew dramatically from about 3,000 in 1980, to a whopping 50,000 SWAT raids in 2014, according to The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander.

To say that the militarization of the police is nothing new is to ignore America’s recent history as well as the long-standing model of a peace officer. As the police have militarized and the Pentagon backs major players in Hollywood, the focus has shifted from one who keeps the peace to one who enforces the law – and that’s an important difference.

What Is the Difference Between a Law Enforcement Officer and a Peace Officer?

The model for police, and the constables and sheriffs before them prior to the late 20th Century, was that of a peace officer. In many states, it’s not even true that police are law enforcement officers – even though it’s a term frequently used by the police and their fans in the “Blue Lives Matter,” “Thin Blue Line,” and “Back the Blue” movements.

It’s a subtle, but important, distinction: Is the role of the police to enforce the law or to keep the peace? Consider the difference between the police force of a typical American city and the fictional Andy Taylor of The Andy Griffith Show. The former is concerned primarily with enforcing the law for its own sake and catching as many “lawbreakers” as possible. The latter, on the other hand, is primarily concerned with keeping the peace. Sometimes that means looking the other way when laws get broken.

This isn’t simply a matter of how pleasant or unpleasant it is to deal with the police. Law enforcement officers might be writing parking tickets in the middle of a burglary epidemic due to their need to enforce all the laws all the time. Conversely, a peace officer is going to ignore a lot of low-level, habitual crime – even when there are clear victims (for example, vandalism or loitering) – because he emphasizes going out and catching violent and dangerous criminals. There’s no impulse to arrest a guy who habitually smokes weed on a street corner if he’s providing the police with valuable information leading to the arrest of violent criminals.

Peace officers might have the need for a sidearm and a shotgun, but they have little or no need for, say, a tank, to say nothing of the variety of nasty DARPA weapons police departments are increasingly wanting and getting.

The Origins of Militarized Police

Weapons of War On Our Streets: A Guide to the Militarization of PoliceBefore we begin talking about the militarized American police, it’s worth mentioning that United States law specifically prohibits the military from enforcing the laws in the U.S. That’s why we don’t have the Army enforcing the law, and also why we don’t have a military-style gendarmerie as is common in Europe. This law, the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878, was passed after the removal of federal troops from the Southern states following the end of Reconstruction. With rare exception, the federal government is not allowed to use the Army or the Air Force to enforce the law and the Navy has strict regulations for both the Navy and Marine Corps regarding the use of either for domestic law enforcement.

However, this law has been somewhat undermined due to police forces becoming so much like the military, which began during Prohibition in the 1920s. Organized crime got its first foothold in American life thanks to the lucrative black market in liquor. This was also the golden age of bank robbery with figures like Bonnie and Clyde, Pretty Boy Floyd and John Dillinger becoming folk heroes. The Thompson submachine gun and the Browning Automatic Rifle were increasingly used by organized crime and the “stars” of bank robbery.

The Prohibition Era saw domestic police departments wielding automatic weapons for the first time. There was nothing nefarious about this from the perspective of local police departments. In fact, it was the police departments most regularly in contact with vicious organized crime, such as Chicago and Kansas City, who led the way in arming their officers with automatic weapons and armored vehicles. At least two rounds of ammunition, the .38 Super and the .357 Magnum, were developed with the express purpose of being able to penetrate the early bulletproof vests worn by gangsters in the Prohibition Era.

Overall crime increased by 24 percent during the first two years of Prohibition. This included a nine-percent increase in theft and burglary, a 13-percent increase in homicides, and a 13-percent increase in assault and battery. Overall, police department costs increased by 11.4 percent. However, because the police were busy fighting the scourge of demon alcohol, it was difficult for them to target crimes unrelated to this. In fact, a study of South Carolina counties that enforced Prohibition versus those who didn’t found a whopping 30- to 60-percent increase in homicides in the counties who enforced the law. All of this is according to Charles Hanson Towne in The Rise and Fall of Prohibition: The Human Side of What the Eighteenth Amendment Has Done to the United States.

This era of militarization drew to a close with the end of Prohibition itself. However, the militarization of police would resume again a few decades down the line.

The truth behind the Safe Schools program (Part 2)

From the Whale Oil Blog …. See here for Part 1.

(EWR comment after the article)


Ministry of Sexualisation: Part 2

Online videos show 11-year-old Desmond Napoles dancing on stage in a bar while grown men throw money at him neonnettle

After introducing you to part one yesterday, the investigative series continues.

Schools should be a safe place to be, but for the majority, they will soon become unsafe. Safe Schools has landed in New Zealand, with the blessing of the Ministry of Education.

[…] No other special interest group is granted such privileges.
We don?t devote entire lessons to the visually impaired, create ‘blind pride’ days, or include blind heroes in every class. We don?t demand teachers police blind-phobic language, or that they wear braille name-tags.

Perhaps we should. It would give a far more positive school environment than constantly bringing sex to the forefront of children’s minds.
This is the essence of what the Rainbow movement is about.

The entire culture and worldview is centred around who a person wants to have sex with.

Perhaps we should just let kids be kids.

I recently wrote a four-part series of articles exposing the hidden aspects of the Secondary School program Mates&Dates. The program uses innocuous sounding words such as ?gender stereotypes?.

‘Gender Stereotypes’ classes are not teaching kids that it’s okay for girls to like rugby and boys to like cooking. They are teaching a redefined meaning of gender.

This is disturbing. I see the agenda popping up in NZ now, the latest being the anti bullying day May 17th wherein every child had to wear something pink. So the real agenda is parading as anti-bullying in some parts of the planet. Here is a US blog also speaking to this issue. Australia’s ‘You’re Teaching Our Children What?’ site is pretty comprehensive on the topic. They also have a Facebook page if you are interested. And no we are not anti gay people, we are pro transparency! Gary Dowsett referred to in the article alludes to ‘inter-generational love’ (aka pedophilia). Note how they re frame everything?

Nobody wants bullying & I’m sure that stamping it out in our schools could be achieved without the requirement of children wearing pink. If pushing gender reassignment is the goal they should be up front and saying so, not cloaking it in other terms. Thereby parents would have a choice to opt their children out. I won’t pontificate further, please just read & decide for yourself. Or perhaps if you haven’t already, get yourself down to your child’s school and ask to see the full ‘safe schools’ curriculum.

The truth behind the Safe Schools program (Part 1)

From the whaleoil blog:


“Safe Schools rocketed into the spotlight in Australia, mid-2017. It’s been exposed as being overseen by several people who openly support paedophilia as a legitimate sexual orientation. Gary Dowsett was one of them. He wrote a book about his support for ‘inter-generational love’ called; Boiled Lollies and Bandaids; Gay men and kids:  quote

‘How different then is the gentle, tentative sexuality between parent and child from the love of a paedophile and his or her lover. That kind of love, warmth and nurture is an important part of the paedophilic relationship’ end quote… Gary Dowsett

Schools should be a safe place to be, but for the majority, they will soon become unsafe. Safe Schools has landed in New Zealand, with the blessing of the Ministry of Education.

Three things stand out from the above image:

1. The Ministry of Education wants ‘inclusive school-wide systems’.

2. The Ministry of Education officially sanctions the ‘Safe schools coalition’?

3. Views which are not in favour of homosexual & Trans people are ‘a form of violence’.

The Ministry of Education website is now littered with links and videos directing teachers to Minus-18 and The Safe schools coalition.

Safe Schools rocketed into the spotlight in Australia, mid-2017.

A NZ heli-hunter of 47 years has observed that none of the once-prolific pre-1080-drop Kea are left in Hollyford & Clinton Vllys Fiordland

“It is very disturbing to see this, as Kea were numerous in these catchments prior to the intensive poison drops in the Hollyford and Clinton catchments” … Dick Deaker

By Carol Sawyer

Heli-hunter Dick Deaker has written today:

“I got 14 deer yesterday morning, most in the Clinton Valley. We never saw a Kea!! And as you can see the gut bags ​from the deer we​ shot there 3 weeks ago are untouched! It is very disturbing to see this, as Kea were numerous in these catchments prior to the intensive poison drops in the Hollyford and Clinton catchments. And they are about to do them all again in the next couple of months!!!!”

Dick says none of the gut bags they have left in the last five years in the Clinton Valley have been touched since the poisonings started, and none in the Hollyford either since the first aerial 1080 drop there 20 months ago

Dick has been a helihunter in Fiordland for 47 years.

***************************************************

End note: The Kea, endemic to NZ, (i.e. not found elsewhere), is the world’s only truly Alpine parrot. It is omnivorous and eats a wide range of plant and animal matter, loving to scavenge carcasses. Consequently it is doubly at risk from aerial 1080 poisoning, eating the sweet 1080 poison cereal-baits and also scavenging on the poisoned carcasses, which causes secondary poisoning.


NOTE: If you are pro poisoning of the environment, EnvirowatchRangitikei is not really the forum to espouse your opinions.  Mainstream, where those views are already the status quo would be the place to air those. Nearly 70% of DoC’s studies justifying the use of 1080 poison were conducted in-house. This is a venue reserved for sharing the independent science that you won’t of course find there.

Labour MPs receive gifts from Huawei which wants to roll out 5G in NZ

These were formerly termed bribes. Gifts sounds better though doesn’t it? Not so borderline criminal? And who reports them as ‘gifts’? Why NZ mainstream whore media of course, they’re all in each others’ corporate pockets. Well in bed with each other would be more to the point. Takoha, the time worn tactic from way back & still in business. Only small gifts somebody has said, still large or small it has the same magical effect.


From tvnz

It’s been revealed several Labour MPs have accepted gifts from controversial Chinese Communication company Huawei.

MPs have to register interests such as assets, debts and gifts they have received, and the list as at 31 January 2019 was presented to Parliament today.

Police Minister Stuart Nash accepted tickets and hospitality to an All Blacks v France rugby game from Huawei Technologies.

Māori Development, Local Government and Associate Environment Minister Nania Mahuta received Warriors v Canberra Raiders match tickets and hospitality from Huawei New Zealand.

Corrections Minister Kelvin Davis accepted All Blacks test tickets from Huawei.

List MP and Junior Whip Kiri Allan received two All Blacks tickets, food, and beverages in Wellington from Huawei.

Huawei wants to role out the 5G network in New Zealand but there is pressure from international partners not to let them.

The GCSB is still making it’s final decision on the matter.

A Horowhena farmer gets off an $80k fine for illegally draining a lake because he couldn’t afford to pay it!

“In the Levin District Court on Monday, Fyfe Charles Williamson was sentenced to 80 hours’ community work  after a judge accepted the farmer was unable to pay the massive fine allowed under the Resource Management Act…

The significant damage and risk Williamson’s actions caused to native wildlife and fauna would have resulted in an $80,000 fine, if the farmer could have paid it, the judge said …”   

So the chap gets off because the fine is too big?? Where else can that happen? Note how mainstream whore media reframe the whole thing. ‘Narrowly avoids’ … what a farce this is. We have a law to protect the environment, but only from certain people who can afford the fine! Remember the guy who got a jail sentence for catching fish where he wasn’t supposed to in the Rotorua lakesto feed his family? No mercy for that man, who had to spend 12 months away from his family, and this Horowhenua man kills thousands of fish, having knowingly broken the law … gets 80 hrs community service because he can’t afford $80,000. Wouldn’t that normally just translate to an equivalent jail sentence?  Justice for the wealthy farmer, none for the poor man feeding his family. Also deemed racist at the time compared with other contemporary crimes.  Please, before you all jump up and down about that, don’t shoot the messenger. That was from newshub and really in the cold light of day it does look as they say doesn’t it?

Remember this is why they sent thousands to ‘the colonies’ particularly Australia, stealing bread for their families got them deported quick smart. Sounding more familiar by the day. All getting very Dickensian isn’t it? And note on the farcical toothless Resource Management Act …. Dr Mike Joy has called it out thus on social media: “The RMA is a joke, and a very bad one at that, and this is a prime example.”

POLICE WITH GUNS, WITH NO DUE CAUSE, IS A NEW DEVELOPMENT IN NZ

By Carol Sawyer

Armed police banging on doors on Sunday mornings, to harass people with no due cause, is fascist and totalitarian. Police asking people what their views on Jacinda Ardern are, and on Trump, and whether they have ‘ethnic minority’ friends is out of order.

Jacinda Ardern is behaving more like an apprentice dictator than the PM of a democratic country, (if, of course, she is actually aware this is happening). It might be better to calm down and permit rational discussion – including the acceptance of differing points of view. Is there any rational talk in NZ any more?

People are understandably getting incredibly wound up about a number of issues related to freedom of speech.The events in Christchurch have thrown us all out of gear, as a country.

As Stephen Franks pointed out in an interview with Sean Plunket (MagicTalk Radio, 8 May, 2019) we can not and should not rely on the police to make us feel safe. Safety comes from the checks and balances of our society itself, when people trust each other and have bedrock beliefs in common.
Interfere with that and there will be problems.

Importantly, the police should not have lists of suspects without any explanation to the public of why they are suspects!

I have just spoken to Travis Mills, Private Secretary (Police), about this matter. He told me, and I quote:

“It is highly unlikely that police would be questioning people’s political preferences. Who you vote for is not a matter for NZ Police.”
