As New Zealand has begun the roll out of its vaccine initiative, can we actually call these vaccines – vaccines ?
Is it deceptive to not tell people they are being injected with a digital operating system that will set them up for medicine in the future to be delivered to the body via a supposed vaccine ?
Moderna’s website goes on to say:
…”…Our mRNA Medicines – The ‘Software of Life’ – When we have a concept for a new mRNA medicine and begin research, fundamental components are already in place…. “…
Revisiting a post from March 2019 with some updated links FYI, pertinent at this time as today the new experimental covid vaccine rolls out on the NZ public.
Firstly, although vaccines in NZ are not mandatory, there is an expectation nevertheless that you be vaccinated & questioning that narrative is not seen as reasonable at all. Witness the phone calls elderly get telling them to ‘get in and get their flu shots’ or the visits to the homes of non vaccinating parents inquiring why they are declining shots? This does happen I assure you. EWR
The 2019 article:
“Last week amidst a measles outbreak in Christchurch [2019 note], social media has been in full on discussion about vaccines with an article by TV1 news featuring Nigel Latta, another prominent person weighing in on a borderline push insisting that parents vaccinate their children. (Truthstream Media’s video titled Free Speech and Shutting Down the Vaccine Debate is unfortunately ‘no longer available’ on YT). Google, Amazon & Facebook are all involved in this. And meanwhile, Duncan Garner has labeled anybody who refuses to vaccinate a ‘murderer’. Note, nary a mention of all the babies who have died following vaccination.“
Vaccination in NZ is not compulsory. See the official email from the NZ Health Dept website below.
These prominent persons who are waving their self assumed ‘authority’ over you & your families under your noses, should in my opinion concentrate more on urging parents to obtain all the scientific literature from both sides of the vaccination issue before proceeding with their own informed & well researched decision that will benefit their children. Same as we should on any proposed medical procedure. Instead, Latta has likened such thinking folk to flat earthers.
Recently we posted a video featuring talk back radio where a young mother who is also a psychology graduate & whose six week old baby was vaccine injured, made a plea for full disclosure by the health professionals of the possible risks vs the possible benefits of a vaccine. One hour after vaccination, this young mother says her baby woke up screaming & over two days turned into a floppy rag doll with a high pitched shrill moan … his brain was swelling. Listen to her speak in the following short clip.
So according to Latta’s thinking, anybody who questions this medical procedure (what are the contents of the vaccine? Are there any side effects to consider? and so on) are actually “as legitimate as those at the Flat Earth Society”. Surely this young woman’s desire to be informed of the said risks vs benefits should not qualify her to be considered by health professionals as a so called ‘conspiracy theorist’? (the favourite go-to of those who would prefer you didn’t look at the facts).
I’m very disappointed as I really admired Latta’s work with the Shadowlands series. Yet on this issue he clearly is not for our parental right of choice. There are now enough testimonies from parents of deceased babies & disabled children who wish they had been informed of the risks and who cannot now turn back the clock. If you doubt that please visit the Vaxxed Youtube channel & hear all the heartbroken parents speaking out. View the before & after videos of their precious little ones, changed forever. Any parent’s worst nightmare. The disturbing thing about that is their numbers are increasing.
To not weigh up the risks of injury versus the benefits, in light of the current available information, would in my opinion be very irresponsible.
This is not however how the medical establishment sees this. They want you to get the vaccine, no questions asked. Hitler would be proud.
With respect to the parental right to decline a vaccine, folk have been sharing their experiences recently following the post of an article about children of non consenting parents being pressured by nurses at their schools to be vaccinated regardless of their parents’ wishes. A blatant violation of human rights. Details are in this article:
Parents having read this article made the following comments in social media:
My daughters were approached by nurses at school “gently” encouraging them to persuade me, they also rang me to question my judgment….I’M THE PARENT not them how dare they question my decisions for my daughters.
I’ve had lengthy conversations with my 11 and a half year old about this..today he said his teacher was telling them all they have to get vaccinated to keep them safe and asking them questions like “you do want to be safe and live don’t you?” , the teacher proceeded to tell the kids they needed to go home this evening and tell their parents that they need to make an appointment with the doctor asap…they have a vaccination program for the year 8s at his school and I told him he has my full permission to refuse and if they pressure him to demand to be able to call me or run away from the area that they are vaccinating.
I received HPV vaccination over 12 years ago now, when my mum sent in a form that said she didn’t consent to me receiving it. I gave it to the nurse who tossed it in the bin, then gave it to me anyways.. when I got home I told my mum & the next day she called a meeting with the school principal, vice principal and all my teachers and went offfff. After that day they didn’t even bother giving me any forms for vaccinations because they didn’t want my mum to come down to the school again.
When my boy was attending Intermediate school they were being targeted for diptheria, tetanus pertussis (triple vaccine) and as a parent I rang to ask where was the info for the parents. Answer was “oh we don’t do this anymore and hardly anyone turns up” So I was invited along to an assembly where they addressed all the kids. My boy had been sent on an errand unbeknown to me and when the session was finished he turned up almost in tears as he had “missed out”. Now the session included a video of propaganda showing an old school photo of a class with circles around a few pupils (can’t remember which way around it was to use as an example who was spreading disease). The Deputy Principal allowed for questions of the 2 DHB nurses present. One South African boy asked what bad reactions could happen and the nurse had to acknowledge “anaphylactic shock”. I raised my hand to ask a question and the DP gave me the most evil look then promptly closed the whole session down and sent everyone back to class. What hope is there if the teachers are propagandised leaves me worried and wondering …..
Parents now also need to be aware that some children are being prescribed anti-depressants without parental consent.
Clearly some medical staff are taking it upon themselves to apply pressure to children which is not acceptable. As to prescribing anti depressants without parental consent, that is definitely crossing the line. Watch your children parents. Listen to them. And be involved & know what is happening at their schools. Make it clear to those concerned what your expectations are regarding any health procedure.
Note also the right of choice has also been removed from the staff of a Christchurch school regarding their own choice to vaccinate. Unvaccinated teachers face a fine of $2,000:
To conclude here is a reply from the NZ government’s health website to the question: Please advise if immunisation in New Zealand is compulsory or that it is up to the person and/or parents to make that decision. Your website is not very clear on all of this. [Note since reposting this on 20/2/21 I’ve not been able to locate this letter any more on the site … it may be there but I cannot find it].

Subject: Re: Immunisation
Thank you for your email. Getting immunised is voluntary in New Zealand, and it is an individual’s (or parent’s/guardian’s) choice whether or not they or their child agree to being immunised.
Note under the Health (Immunisation) Regulations 1995 all early childhood education centres and primary schools must maintain an immunisation register, and may request that the caregiver provides their child’s immunisation certificate or record that the child is not immunised.
Your health practitioner will be able to provide you with information that will allow you to make an informed choice. Health professionals have a duty to give honest and open information about any medical treatment, which includes immunisations. This ensures that the individual or parent/guardian is able to give their full consent to the immunisation. The individual or parent/guardian needs to understand the benefits and risks of immunisation, including those to the child and their community, in order to make an informed choice and give informed consent.
The information about immunisation on our website is based on the overwhelming body of scientific evidence that shows the benefits of immunisation far outweigh its risks. This position underpins the health systems of every country in the world. Another website you may find useful is that of the Immunisation Advisory Centre (IMAC), which provides independent information about vaccine-preventable diseases and the benefits and risks of immunisation (http://www.immune.org.nz).
Apology & correction thanks to a reader: I had referred previously to Dr Petousis-Harris incorrectly as an immunologist. She is an expert in the subject of vaccinology (definition at the end of the article). EWR
NZ Herald reports “The first batch of Covid-19 vaccine has arrived in New Zealand and will be given to front line workers from Saturday. The rest of the country will follow as more doses become available” Auckland University vaccines expert Dr Helen Petousis-Harris answers some of your most frequently asked questions.“
“The Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine is very safe. It has been formally tested on more than 40,000 people…”
“Despite social media and YouTube posts,there has not been a single death attributed to this vaccine.”
Is the ‘esteemed’ expert relying on the (hitherto very reliable) ‘no correlation proven’ narrative with regard to this claim? For those of us who have been carefully reading & recording, of particular note the VAERS & CDC stats, and the 1100 plus deaths and thousands of (supposedly very rare) serious side effects to date (CDC figures) this claim leaves independent researchers with jaws dropped. Is death 25 minutes post vaccine still ‘no correlation’? I personally am stuck for words.
I will simply remind folk that this new vaccine was rolled out in less than twelve months when it normally takes 7-10 years. It is still in its experimental stages and has only been approved for emergency use. This one has been developed in less than 12 months, skipping the animal testing phase, and dubbed by Brian Hooker, a Biologist, Chemist at Simpson University (US) a ‘recipe for disaster’, (video at 4 min 56 sec). https://tinyurl.com/sfakjvp0
Or… perhaps you the public are the ‘animals’ being tested … in real time?
(PS I recommend you both listen to a lecture by Dr Simone Gold on topic, and search ‘covid vaccine deaths’ and ‘covid vaccine reactions’ in ‘categories’ at the left of the news page.) Note… if you search at Bitchute.com there are many smaller clips by Dr Gold. The above link is an hour long lecture.
Note: the term vaccinologist comes from the study of vaccinology:
“A nascent field of expertise related to the creation and deployment of vaccines; the field ‘borrows’ from epidemiology, immunology, infectious disease, pediatrics, preventive medicine, public health, virology” American Heritage Medical Dictionary
As the covid-19 vaccine rolls out in NZ it would be useful for you to consider the following information before deciding whether or not you should take it. Some countries for instance are recommending certain age groups not take it, and NZ has stated they are not planning to vaccinate children with it yet. Still others have declined it. Deaths following vaccination, have been notable in the elderly age group so you may want to examine the statistics on behalf of your elderly loved ones. (Note, I have been following these developments since the discussion began in 2020, and find that the media is not providing clear information regarding the damages and deaths in other countries that have rolled it out so far. This important information is in fact being censored, in light of which you may find some of these links no longer work).

In one of the more draconian enforcement actions ever taken against raw milk producers, the New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industry (MPI) brought criminal charges against the farmers of nine different raw milk dairies for violations of that country’s Raw Milk for Sale to Consumers Regulations 2015 (the “2015 regulations”). Some of the defendants have also been charged with violations of the Animal Products Act (APA). The raw milk charges assert that by engaging in the supply of raw cow milk “a direct or indirect risk to human or animal health would be created.”
The Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF) is aware of specific charges against three of the farms (two of the three are operated by pensioners). Cedric Backhouse and his wife (WAPF chapter leader Susan Gales) of Alt Energy Farm are each being charged with 26 violations of the 2015 regulations and the APA related to the distribution of raw milk and meat through a herdshare agreement; the potential penalties for each defendant are up to 19 years in jail and $1.8 million (over $1.25 million in U.S. dollars) in fines.
Phillippa (Pip) Martin and John Martin of Manna Milk are each facing seven charges with penalties of up to 12 years in jail and $545,000 in fines (over $380,000 US) for alleged violations of the 2015 regulations and the APA related to the distribution of raw milk through a limited partnership agreement.
Paul and Christine Ashton of Lindsay Farms are each facing five charges with penalties up to eight years in jail and $320,000 in fines (over $225,000 US) for alleged violations of the 2015 regulations related to the distribution of raw milk through a limited partnership agreement.
A majority of the farmers charged were operating under a herdshare or a limited partnership business model as a matter of survival after MPI issued the 2015 regulations affecting raw milk production and sales (the regulations went into effect in March 2016). The ministry promulgated the regulations as a result of a 2014 foodborne illness outbreak associated (or blamed on) raw milk consumption where seven people became ill.
The number of dairies selling or distributing raw milk is a fraction of what it was before MPI imposed the new regulations. It is considerably more difficult for the remaining dairies to make a living than it was five years ago. MPI’s enforcement action against the farmers–in addition to putting the charged farms out of business–is designed to create a chilling effect on the remaining farms and on farmers thinking of starting up a raw milk business.
ACTION TO TAKE
WAPF, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, is accepting donations to help pay legal expenses for the charged farmers. Donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. To donate, please use the link here (westonaprice.org/donate) and indicate the fund for ‘New Zealand raw milk’. (For those wanting to send a check, please specify that it is for “New Zealand raw milk”.)
Before the 2015 regulations went into effect, it was estimated that as many as 200 farms were selling or distributing raw milk in New Zealand; today there could be less than 20% of that number still left.
A. Compliance Barriers
The cost to raw milk farms to comply with the 2015 regulations was in the range of $10,000-$20,000 per year for each farm regardless of what the farm’s production volume was—an expenditure that many farms could not afford. Beyond that, there were several ways that the new requirements significantly hurt the farmers’ ability to make a living.
1. Depot Permits and Burdens
Before 2016, farmers were able to deliver raw milk to a central distribution point (also known as a “depot”), a necessity given the distance between most farms and their customers plus the substantial amount of extra time it takes to deliver door-to-door. The new regulations required a permit for each depot the farmers were delivering to; otherwise, sales were limited to on-farm and to customer premises. Given the estimated cost of permitting each depot, out of the 26 raw milk farms that have registered with MPI (registration was also a requirement in the 2015 regulations), only one has obtained depot permits. Any customer wanting to pick up milk at the depot had to be registered with MPI as a transport operator. There are numerous recordkeeping requirements for a transport operator even when that individual is picking up milk for his or her own family.
2. Sell-by and Use-by Constraints
The most damaging provisions for farmers in the new regulations were sell-by and used-by requirements for raw milk. The regulation for a sell-by time states the following:
“The sell-by time for a lot of milk is the time that is the 30 hours after the commencement of milking for the oldest milk in that lot. (For example, if milking commenced at 7am on Monday 4 June, the sell-by time is 1pm on Tuesday 5 June, even if milk from a subsequent milking is added to that lot.).”
One of the registered farms estimated that this mandate cost them 30% of their business since the farm was unable to meet the time constraints in getting the milk to its more distant customers.
The requirement for the use-by date for raw milk “is 4 days after the commencement of milking for the oldest milk in the lot.”
Another onerous mandate for the farmers is on testing. Dairies are required to test for five different pathogens, coliforms, plate count, somatic cell counts, and “inhibitory substances” every 10 days. Estimates for the cost of testing are around $750 per month.
Lastly, the regulations require that farmers not only keep customer names on file for MPI inspection but also every transaction with each customer as well.
B. Alternate Business Models
Many dairies, knowing they couldn’t afford the cost of compliance with the new regulations, went out of business before the new law took effect. Others–believing their only way to stay afloat was to not have to comply with the 2015 regulations–set up business models such as herdshare programs and limited partnership agreements, proceeding in good faith that giving their customers an ownership interest in their dairy livestock would exempt them from the new requirements.
C. MPI Raids
When fewer raw milk producers registered than MPI had anticipated, in 2019 the ministry launched “Operation Caravan”, an investigation of dairies that MPI suspected were not complying with the new regulations. The investigation included the extensive use of MPI undercover operatives. In December 2019 MPI obtained search warrants and raided eight raw milk farms and farmers’ homes around the country, seizing everything from customer lists to computer hard drives. Some of the raided farms shut down; others kept on going. After a year-long investigation, MPI filed criminal charges in December 2020. The Ashtons had registered Lindsay Farm with MPI months earlier, having been told by the ministry that any potential charges would go away if the farm was registered.
Backhouse and Galea are each charged with 17 counts of selling or offering to sell illegally home-killed meat; each count lists the amount allegedly sold as under $100 and one was for only $15.40. The potential fine for each of the 17 charges is up to $75,000. MPI has never accused Backhouse and Galea of making anyone sick with the milk or meat they produced.
An attorney representing one of the charged farmers has been unable to find evidence that any of the charged farmers made anyone ill with the milk they produced. Under the law, MPI can only prosecute those whose products pose a public health risk.
Arraignment for defendants is scheduled to take place in March.The accused farmers and the 250,000 New Zealand residents who consume raw milk need your support.

Excerpts from ‘The Treaty of Waitangi’ by Dame Claudi Orange, recognized authority on the Treaty. She is a distinguished historian, and the author of The Treaty of Waitangi (1987) and An Illustrated History of the Treaty (2021).
“…all Māori leaders signed a copy of the Māori language Tiriti, which did not convey the full meaning of the English text, especially the extent of sovereign powers. Only some would have been able to read Te Tiriti, even if they had been given the chance.”
“Governor William Hobson was caught by surprise. Summoned ashore late in the morning of February 6, he arrived in plain clothes but having snatched up his plumed hat. Several hundred Māori were waiting for him in the marquee, and several hundred others stood around outside. Many had arrived since the meeting the previous day, including some high-ranking women. Only James Busby and about a dozen Europeans had turned up, among them the Catholic Bishop Pompallier. Hobson, nervous and uneasy, more than once expressed concern that the meeting could not be considered a “regular public meeting” since the proper notice had not been given. He would not allow discussion, but would be prepared to take signatures.”

A group of New Zealand health practitioners have joined a growing international movement that says COVID-19 is not a sufficient threat to warrant the elimination strategy and lockdowns.
The founding signatories felt obliged by their professional ethics to express support by signing a statement of principles that assert the low risk posed by COVID-19, the availability of treatment, the dangers of Government over-reaction, and primacy of the doctor-patient relationship.
Are we expected to believe that chemicals were being processed in the Bromley warehouse (this was stated in the original news story) but that despite the chemicals in the warehouse being those used for manufacturing pure 1080, the company was NOT manufacturing pure 1080?
Unfortunately Stuff has not made clear, or understood, the difference between importing 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) and storing the chemicals needed to make it! ( See quote).
If you are not manufacturing sodium fluoroacetate, but only importing it, why do you need the chemicals used to make it?! An important question to have asked, surely? As the article points out, manufacturing sodium fluoroacetate is not permitted in NZ. This building contained ethyl fluoroacetate, sodium hydroxide, and ethanol… the products needed to MANUFACTURE pure 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate). It also contained sodium fluoroacetate.
Quote from article: “The factory did not manufacture 1080, but stored the chemicals that could be used to make it. Manufacturing 1080 is not permitted in New Zealand but some companies, including PCR Ltd, have permission to make cereal bait from imported 1080.”
How do Stuff know the factory was not manufacturing 1080? It appears that PCR Ltd have not been CHARGED with manufacture, which is not the same thing. Assumptions being made here.
Quote from article: “Company spokesman Steve Attwood previously told Stuff the Bromley site was “essentially a storage facility”. What the company was doing with the chemicals was “a commercially sensitive process of delivering good pest control products”, he said.” ……What on earth does THAT mean?
The accident happened nearly two years ago and yet Unit 1, 56 Wickham St, Bromley, Christchurch has still not been decontaminated and still apparently contains these highly hazardous chemicals, as a Hazchem sign was eventually placed on the building last year and is still there. The three other units under the same roof are all leased by other businesses and an aquatic centre, where children learn to swim, is just metres away and shares the same drive-in entrance. The building is so hazardous that firemen have been forbidden to enter in case of fire! Today the Bromley court case was due to be heard at 10.00 am. After nearly two hours of other cases being heard it was again adjourned. Will it ever come to court? After WorkSafe NZ spent a year investigating this incident, charges were laid in June, 2020. The case was due to be heard in the Christchurch District Court in mid-July, 2020. It was postponed on the day. It was due to be heard on the 19th August, 2020. It was again postponed on the day. It was due to be heard on the 15th September, 2020. It was again postponed on the day. It was due to be heard on 2 December, 2020. It was postponed again on the day. It was due to be heard on 9 February, 2021. It was postponed again today.
PS After I contacted reporter Joanne Naish this afternoon she brought the question of manufacture to her editor’s attention. The editor has therefore made a tweak. This part now reads:”The company previously said it was not manufacturing 1080 at the Bromley warehouse, but was storing the chemicals that could be used to make it.”
“Steinlarger in association with Michael Fay and Lockheed Martin give you the Americas Cup sport of billionaires, Hypersonic missiles built for delivering nukes and a revised vision of what NZ nuclear free legacy was all about.

Why is this? Adern has ordered enough vaccines already for 750K Kiwis. So while professing moves to ensure its safety before proceeding, nevertheless she has purchased them anyway.
newshub …. “Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield and Medsafe group manager Chris James, who will outline the process involved in making sure a vaccine is safe and effective.”
A reminder, it normally takes 10 years to develop a vaccine. _________________________________________________________________________
tvnz… Speaking to media from Northland, Jacinda Arden said the Government was “not in a race to be first, but to ensure safe and timely access to vaccines for all New Zealanders”.
Provisional approval means the vaccine needs to meet certain conditions, and more data needs to be gathered from clinical trials.
“It means we can now begin preparations for the first stage in our vaccination roll-out,” Ardern said.
Pfizer is the first coronavirus vaccine approved for use in New Zealand, and will see border workers and essential staff the first to receive a shot.
Those most at risk of getting Covid-19 will also receive the vaccine first, with the broader population able to be vaccinated from the second half of the year.
“Subject to expected delivery of the first batch of the vaccine, we will start vaccinating first our border workers and the people they live with,” Ardern said.
The vaccine could start arriving in the country from next month. New Zealand has ordered 1.5 million doses, enough for 750,000 people.
The country’s medical regulator, Medsafe, met yesterday for final discussions on the jab before sign-off was sought from a ministerial group.
Following today’s approval, Ministry of Health officials will give advice to the Government to set out who are most suited to receive the vaccine, such as age ranges.
“We expect the first Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines will arrive in New Zealand by the end of the first quarter, but we are making sure everything is in place in case there is an earlier arrival,” Covid-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins said.
“Once vaccination of our border workers starts, we expect it to be completed within two to three weeks.”
Director-General of Health Ashley Bloomfield said there was a “vigorous assessment process” in coming to the decision.
“This provisional approval is very much the start of a new chapter in our Covid-19 response and I want to reassure New Zealanders we will also be applying the same rigour to all subsequent vaccine applications.
“Vaccination is a key next step in our ongoing response to this virus. It’s also a good point to recognise the incredible amount of work New Zealanders have put in to support our successful response to date.
“There is more work to do, we are not out of the woods yet — but the provisional approval of the Pfizer and BioNTech vaccine is a significant milestone.”
Pfizer recently agreed to a criminal plea to pay $2.3 billion to settle allegations it improperly marketed 13 medicines.
“Pharmaceutical companies often seek indemnities when developing a pandemic vaccine, because of the need to speed up the clinical trial process” says RNZ in their article (link below). This decision for indemnity was actually made in October 2020. Any members of the public required by their employers to take this vaccine, should seek further information about possible side effects. We in NZ have the ‘advantage’ if you could call it that, of seeing any side effects on other nations that have started vaccinating their populations. You can seek to access that information from the respective countries, but particularly, the United States has the VAERS website that lists adverse reactions (bearing in mind only 1% are actually reported). We have to date seen 7844 thousand adverse reactions and 181 deaths. Those stats are in the US. Gibraltar has just seen 53 die following the experimental vaccine. I have also noted media stating when someone has died days or weeks after the vaccine, that the cause of death was not necessarily the vaccine.
Fully informed consent is the very least a member of the public should expect. To not give this is in violation of the Nuremberg Code (further articles here). This vaccine is untested so you the public are the lab rats. In addition total immunity from liability for the manufacturer sends, for me, a very clear message. In plain English it means if you get very sick or even die (as many have) you’re on your own. It also means that your government is on, not your side, but on that of the Pfizer corporation.
You should also know that Pfizer agreed to criminal plea to pay $2.3 billion to settle allegations it improperly marketed 13 medicines.
As of today, Japan is warning it will stop importing New Zealand honey if it continues to find the weed killer glyphosate during border testing. What will happen if they ever realize they should test for 1080 poison as well?! On September 21, 2018, Benita Martin sent a question to Comvita – “Please advise what tests for 1080 are undertaken on your honey? I’m worried about the bees that were found on the 1080 poisoned cows and your hives are closest to the location.”
“Comvita uses Analytica Laboratories to undertake Sodium monofluoroacetate (1080) testing. Analytica are an IANZ accredited laboratory who perform a wide variety of bee product testing on behalf of the Apiculture industry. Comvita undertook 1080 testing on a range of honey samples which were taken from honey harvested between September 2017 – March 2018 including honey from 1080 drop zones. No traces of 1080 were detected in any samples which is inline with all scientific literature which suggests the risk of contamination to bees and their products appeared to be negligible. ‘Low risk’ is a category we assign to this residue in our testing schedule, and best reflects where no verified evidence of cross contamination is known to occur. This is consistent with research we have seen elsewhere which indicated 1080 is not attractive to bees and poses no threat.”
Here we have mainstream dispelling the social media rumours that the NZ Govt is planning a lockdown on 15 January. For those of us with a finger on the pulse it’s not really rocket science going with the narrative to note that there will inevitably be another. We simply have a matter of dates here. Either way, being prepared is not rocket science either. We also have, not rumours but ‘stated fact’ from mainstream that food is going to be scarce, and intimations that although not mandatory you won’t be able to travel, work, socialize etc without the CV vaccine (that medical intervention by the way that has killed people or made them very ill – see also Covid Vaccine Deaths & Covid Vaccine reaction in ‘categories’, top left of page). Proving the point over a rumour for the 15th of January is irrelevant in my humble opinion. Let’s look at the larger picture. The ‘fact checkers’ as they call themselves are all over it. These same censorship moguls who are running our lives right now recently deemed an article from a Harvard Immunologist as fake news. So the person with the health degree doesn’t know what she is talking about, while Bill Gates’ whose ‘expertise’ extends somehow way beyond IT and right into health matters and mandatory vaccines without a relevant degree, does. The hypocrisy is breathtaking, and if you hadn’t noticed this by now as I see many still haven’t, I’m very concerned about your gullibility. EWR
A rumour New Zealand will enter lockdown on January 15 has been slammed as false by the All-of-Government COVID-19 Response Group after the untrue claims circulated on social media.
Since we know the end game of the globalists (eventual total lockdown with a new world order / one world government) an end game that they’ve been drip feeding us for years … so you’re used to the idea… this handy virus scenario is pointing us quite conveniently in that direction if you had not already noticed. We have now a new mention of the aforementioned Level 4. We’ve also had other rumours of a lockdown anyway via the online network of truthers … take that or leave it but I for one am preparing for it anyway. In my opinion it has always been ‘when’ not ‘if’. Please do watch the video in the post titled“‘Come into my parlour said a spider to the fly” …. summarizes events quite well. A long watch by David Icke but covers a lot. Icke has tracked the movements of the ‘cult’ as he calls it, from behind the scenes, for decades. Here is a link to the RNZ article:
New Zealand’s managed isolation facilities now house both the highly-transmissible UK variant of COVID-19 and a new one associated with South Africa.
Almost a quarter of the country’s live cases are now the UK variant with that amount expected to increase.
Australia is tightening its managed isolation and quarantine rules after the UK variant was found in its community.
Happy New Year and it’s with a sad heart that we provide a ‘heads up’ for some of the forthcoming next round of proposed poisoning operations in Aotearoa New Zealand – planned by Dept of Conservation and/or Ospri. Other poison operations may not be made public. Three examples are shown in images below, taken from the current online Pesticide Summary. The South Island’s West Coast is already heavily poisoned, with deadly diphacinone, brodifacoum, 1080, cyanide and other toxins. The cocktail effect of these multiple chemicals in sublethal amounts is a total unknown in terms of the impact on our public health. But, despite this, a further mixture of a cyanide and 1080 (bait stations and hand laying) is planned near Hokitika. Meanwhile, on the East Coast near Kaikoura, more cyanide will be laid in bait bags near areas already previously poisoned with 1080. What are the effects of a mix of cyanide and 1080? The streams feed the drinking water supplies for residents and stock. The streams all eventually meet the sea, of course. Are the Kiwi tourists paying to be whale-watchers, aware of the invisible toxins those wildlife face? And thirdly (but by no means, finally) aerial 1080 poison is proposed to be spread by helicopter over 7412 hectares adjacent to sacred Aoraki Mt Cook.
Will 2021 bring any relief from these poisons to our land and water?
June 2017: Seventeen years ago a little-known conference of constitutional experts revealed New Zealand’s dirtiest political secret: that in 1986 the NZ Parliament seized control of the country in a bloodless coup, declaring themselves sovereign above the people in a technical but highly significant move. Nearly two decades later, the position has never been rectified…
APRIL 2000: New Zealanders have fewer Constitutional rights than the citizens of Mongolia: that’s the disturbing revelation as delegates gather for a major Constitutional conference in Wellington this month. They’ll be debating whether we need a written Constitution, and whether New Zealand needs to become a Republic but, as IAN WISHART reports, it’s throwing up some embarassing information about our current Parliamentary system:
For years now, people who should know better have been spreading misinformation about Ihumātao. Now that a deal has been made, it’s time to set the record straight on some of these repeated falsehoods.
Didn’t ‘the iwi’ sell the land in the first place?
Nope, the block of land named the Ōruarangi block was stolen by the government in 1865. The 81 acre block was then granted to the Wallace family in 1867, who sold the land to Fletcher Residential in 2016.
The block was part of more than 1.2 million acres of confiscated land, stretching from Auckland through King Country under the New Zealand Settlements Act, that allowed the confiscation of land belonging to any tribe who were judged to have rebelled against the Queen’s authority. This breached the Treaty of Waitangi. At Ihumātao, 1,100 acres were confiscated. 260 acres were eventually restored to Māori deemed not to have engaged in acts of ‘rebellion’ against the Crown. Ihumātao is stolen land.
New Zealand aims to begin vaccinating its entire population against Covid-19 in the second half of next year in its largest-ever immunization program, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said. The nation’s currency rose.
The government has secured two additional vaccines from pharmaceutical companies AstraZeneca Plc and Novavax Inc, and will have enough for all five million New Zealanders, Ardern said Thursday in Wellington. If proven to be safe and effective, immunization will begin with border workers and essential staff in the second quarter of 2021 followed by the general population in the second half, she said. The vaccines will be free to the public.
“This will be New Zealand’s largest immunization roll out ever,” Ardern said in a statement.
Opinion by Ken Sims, Life member NZ Federation Freshwater Anglers
The recently published article showing 65 percent of our rivers are “unswimmable” in a country of just 5 million people, should remind government that that the continuing state of New Zealand’s rivers is a national calamity. It is a disgraceful, shameful reflection on the failure of successive governments to remedy a water crisis that has been worsening over decades. The report stated that the criteria used “looks only at bacteria levels.” Even there, we have one of the highest rates of zoonoses in the developed world. A zoonosis is an infectious disease that has passed from an animal to humans. Such pathogens may be bacterial, viral or parasitic, and can spread to humans through direct contact or through food, water or the environment. They represent a major public health problem around the world due to humans’ close relationship with animals in agriculture, exacerbated by large, concentrated populations. New Zealand’s water crisis goes far deeper. We also have one of the highest rates of sediment runoff, which smothers all life in a waterway. Sediment runoff is accelerated by land uses such as intensive agriculture and forestry clear felling, the latter immediately exposing the bare soil to subsequent rain.
A clear case in my opinion of disgruntled dentists being denied their bloated profits. Their prices are so high people just can’t afford them. It’s why they head off to other countries to get their dental work done, the fares & treatment still costing less than local charges. Covid’s put paid to that of course. In this case the woman’s only technical ‘crime’ if you like was to take the impressions (ie putting her fingers in patients’ mouths thereby risking health). WINZ however saw fit to sign her up and use her skills for their clients. Now MOH is prosecuting her. The MOH showed up in an unannounced raid, treating her like a criminal. The MOH is of course a corporation, being a ‘subsidiary’ of the NZ corporation (your ‘government’ in case you didn’t know) … it is guarding dental profits. Remember, they threatened to prosecute retired Dr Charles Baycroft for caring about NZers’ health, which is all this dear woman was doing. Watch the video in the article and see all the people she’s helped to smile again. Huge kudos to her. And thumbs down to the MOH. EWR
Dozens of people have turned out to a hui in Northland to show their support for a woman facing charges over claims she made hundreds of dentures without certification.
Kaikohe woman Claire Wihongi-Matene – known by locals as the “tooth fairy” – is facing seven charges brought by the Ministry of Health – one charge of claiming to be a health practitioner and six charges of performing a restricted activity.
The 40-year-old mother of five faces up to $190,000 in fines and is awaiting trial.
Wihongi-Matene has a fine arts degree and 10 years of experience making and repairing dentures in labs in Auckland and Hamilton. Her clients say she charged about a third of the price of dentists.
“My tupuna (ancestors) were tohunga (healers) – they helped heal people – and so I believe I was blessed with the ability to be able to help people and that’s all I’ve ever wanted to do,” she told The Hui.
New Zealand has been named the country that most fits Islamic ideals for the second year in a row, but the area of everyday finance is still difficult for Muslims, says a financial commentator.
In the 2019 Islamicity index, released earlier this year, New Zealand is ranked first overall, followed by Sweden, Iceland, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Denmark and Ireland. The top Muslim-majority country is United Arab Emirates (UAE) at 44.
New Zealand ranks 3rd in terms of its economy, 4th for legal and governance, 5th for human and political rights, and 8th for international relations.
SHOW NOTES AND MP3: https://www.corbettreport.com/?p=38119 Today on Questions For Corbett, James answers a frequently asked question about where people can move to in order to escape the globalist agenda.
This is not good news. Leaked inside info in the Canadian parliament tells of their plans which 30% of those in the know inside are not happy with. The plan refers to the next wave which Bill Gates of course has been warning us about with a smile (video at link). The info comes from a radio show (HalTurnerRadio) with a breakdown by Terral BlackStar at Youtube (links below). Do read and listen for yourself. Definitely you can listen to Canadian MP Randy Hillier asking the important questions which you can hear are carefully replied to in typical politician fashion (as in saying nothing) by their Minister of Health. (These particular ministers including NZ’s should be called Ministers of Stealth not Health). Sub to Hillier’s YT channel... there is more to hear there of his ongoing questions.
I’m noticing lately commentaries saying NZ, Australia & Canada are the early pickings of the New World Order Global Government crew. Hard to argue with when you look at the Police State activity going on. If you want to take over all countries you pick off one at a time and not all of them or the people would all rise up. We’ve long known that NZ is one of those (test cases?) as far back as the lectures by our own Barry Smith during the early ’70s to 2002 (hear him on the New World Order page). His humorous quip (not so humorous now) was always because NZ’s motto is ‘She’ll be right’ … and Australia’s, ‘She’ll be right mate’. Laid back as can be. Question nothing. He would always joke, ‘they wouldn’t try it in France or the farmers would all be out protesting on their tractors’ … we saw this with the Yellow Vests of course. The CV soon shut that one down note. Folks we have the takeover of the world by stealth here using medical martial law. You need to ask yourself why is it the military is required to deliver a voluntary vaccine (that isn’t even here yet … officially ie… hasn’t been & likely won’t be properly tested … and has already severely harmed human guinea pigs because they’ve by-passed animal testing). And… the military is already in place? With regular references to check points and so on. This is the classic case of the frog in the pot of heating water. While Kiwis continue to watch mainstream media and the official narrative while never thinking to question things as this politician in Canada is doing. Hear them all clap at the Minister of Health’s evasive reply. Keeping everybody safe they are. Bravo. Even after the good Minister points out what the Doctors and Scientists are saying about the testing regime! What a joke. The creator of the test told us it was not to be used to test people.
Barry Smith laid out this diabolical plan for world government in minute detail to thousands of people throughout NZ for many years. (These people have been openly recommending one, the Pope being the latest!) He also traveled globally doing the same. They can’t say they weren’t warned.
A Christchurch man has received an easy vote card despite being dead for 16 years.
The card allows someone to turn up and vote and there are no ID checks at polling booths.
Jason Stagg shared the photo on Facebook of the mail addressed to Rosston Keith Harris, who he says is his step-grandfather, with the caption: “Dead men can vote now apparently, I wonder how many dead men will vote this election?”
Another photo shared by a friend of Stagg, Life Connection Baptist Fellowship pastor Carl Bromley, showed the easy vote card for Harris cut out.
Bromley asked “how many deceased people are getting voting cards and whose (sic) using them to vote for who?”
Stagg told Newstalk ZB his household received their voting packs before the easy vote card for Harris arrived – but Harris was the only person to get a easy vote card sent to the residence.
“I was really, really surprised because he [Harris] was the original owner of the property I’m living in. He built it in the 1960’s and he’s long dead.”
Stagg said he hadn’t contacted the Electoral Commission about the issue as he didn’t know where to go with it.
“I’m just wondering how many other dead people are getting these easy vote cards,” he said.
“How many dead people are going to vote in this election?”
Both Bromley and Stagg are proud supporters of the New Conservatives.
An Electoral Commission spokeswoman confirmed Harris is still on the electoral roll despite his death in 2004, and they are following the claim up with Births Deaths and Marriages.
She said they receive daily notifications from the government department and a case like this is extremely rare.
The commission often follows up when mail is sent back to them when someone is no longer living at a property.
The spokeswoman wouldn’t comment on whether or not they could tell if Harris’ vote card had been used to vote and wouldn’t be drawn on specifics due to privacy reasons.

Dr Sam talks about what is happening in NZ in regards to COVID-19 and important information you should know about the COVID-19 PCR Test. #covid19pcr#covid19test What is COVID-19? COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It’s caused by a type of coronavirus. What are the symptoms of Coronavirus? The symptoms of COVID-19 are: * a cough * a high temperature (at least 38°C) * shortness of breath. These symptoms do not necessarily mean you have COVID-19. The symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as cold and flu. Shortness of breath is a sign of possible pneumonia and requires immediate medical attention. How Coronavirus spreads? COVID-19, like the flu, can be spread from person to person. When a person who has COVID-19 coughs, sneezes or talks, they may spread droplets containing the virus a short distance, which quickly settle on surrounding surfaces. That’s why it’s really important to use good hygiene, regularly wash and thoroughly dry your hands, and use good cough etiquette. Websites & References mentioned: 1.

The South Pacific archipelago of New Zealand is in the process of being fully absorbed into an emergent technocratic bio-security operating system amid the ‘Great Corona Reset’.
This global reset bears the hallmarks of a sophisticated bio-terrorism plot authorized by a ‘supreme group’ at the head of supranational deep state network that are operating at a level well above the pay-grades of the world’s visible political, military, corporate and religious leaders.
Indeed, the rhetoric emerging from the billionaire-funded World Economic Forum about Covid-19 opening up an opportunity for a ‘Great Reset’ to accelerate the Fourth Industrial Revolution is highly revealing, given that key players seek nothing less than to re-purpose the bio-functionality of all life – including humans.i
The drive to re-code culture with new language, images, and their metaphors by a Global Health Syndicate – which is a subsidiary of the Western Empire Syndicate – is actually critical to the capture of the most valuable frontier: the space between mortal human ears.
The lock-step bio-security mechanisms that have unfolded occurred in accordance with a directive issued in a health emergency preparedness report titled, “A World at Risk”, that was published on September 18th 2019 by a teething one-year-old institution of the United Nations called the Global Policy Monitoring Board (GPMB). This United Nations board – which was convened by the World Bank Group and the World Health Organization at the request of the United Nations Secretary-General – called for two system-wide ‘pandemic exercises’ to be performed by September 2020, including the deliberate release of a lethal respiratory pathogen.ii
Australian schools in the past decade have forced literally millions of kids to watch Al Gore’s error-riddled propaganda movie, An Inconvenient Truth. In 2007 an outraged English truck driver and parent took the education minister to the High Court in 2007 over the film’s gross inaccuracies, with Justice Burton ordering UK teachers must not show it without first warning kids it is politically partisan and contains nine significant errors. Those include Gore’s absurd claim that many low-lying Pacific island populations had already been evacuated to New Zealand. Despite his vast wealth, Gore has never edited prints of his film to remove the errors.
No such mandatory warnings have accompanied Australian screenings. The Australian Academy of Science, our supposed bulwark against science misinformation, has made no objection to the brainwashing, although its president rushed to condemn a sceptic equivalent film in 2007.
The propaganda cycle is now being repeated. Kids in class are being drenched with Damon Gameau’s saccharine documentary 2040 about purported solutions to a purported climate crisis.
“According to the New York Times article, “public opinion surveys show that most New Zealanders” favored liberalizing their country’s abortion laws. However, independent polling shows that the vast majority oppose specific features in this law. For instance, just 2% of Kiwi women support abortion on-demand up to birth. 93% oppose sex-selective abortion, in which a child is killed for no other reason than his or her sex. And, 94% of women polled support longstanding legal standards for New Zealand’s abortion providers. In other words, they didn’t want them relaxed at all.”
bmw635 csi 6.42K subscribers You’d think that a global pandemic that’s killed hundreds of thousands would at least temper the advance of legal killing. It hasn’t. While headlines worldwide were praising New Zealand’s prime minister for her handling of COVID-19, she was working to pass what might be described as the most extreme abortion laws on the planet. LINK ==== https://www.familyfirst.org.nz/2020/0…https://nzcatholic.org.nz/2020/03/23/… In late March, New Zealand’s parliament voted, in the words of the New York Times, to “loosen” the nation’s abortion laws, particularly in the latter half of pregnancy when babies become viable outside of the womb. “Loosen” may be the understatement of the decade. New Zealand’s “loosened” laws now allows abortion on-demand, up to the moment of birth, for essentially any reason. That means sex-selective and disability-selective abortions, including for conditions like cleft lip and Down syndrome. The “loosening” happened despite the protests of over 1,200 New Zealanders with Down syndrome and their families, who called on Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern to keep her campaign promise not to allow this kind of deadly discrimination. Even more horrific still, New Zealand’s new law includes no requirement that babies born alive after botched abortions be given medical support. This was no accident. Prime Minister Ardern was herself among the loudest voices resisting any attempt to add protections for babies born alive. According to the New York Times article, “public opinion surveys show that most New Zealanders” favored liberalizing their country’s abortion laws. However, independent polling shows that the vast majority oppose specific features in this law. For instance, just 2% of Kiwi women support abortion on-demand up to birth. 93% oppose sex-selective abortion, in which a child is killed for no other reason than his or her sex. And, 94% of women polled support longstanding legal standards for New Zealand’s abortion providers. In other words, they didn’t want them relaxed at all. Perhaps the unpopularity of abortion-on-demand-for-any-reason-whatsoever is why pro-abortion politicians in New Zealand felt the need to rush through this legislation while everyone was distracted by a global pandemic. According to RightToLife.org, as the bill went through successive readings in Parliament, it lost support. In fact, the Abortion Legislation Committee heard from only 139 of the over 25,000 people who submitted public comments on the bill. For perspective, 1,500 people were allowed to speak on a recent climate change bill that received less than half as many submissions. By taking advantage of the few people paying attention and by ignoring those who were, New Zealand’s government has now enacted the most extreme abortion law in the democratic world. As a spokesperson for New Zealand’s Voice for Life described, “Our Parliament has a duty of care to consider the wellbeing and protection of all New Zealanders, including the vulnerable…they failed in that basic duty of care by passing this extreme Bill, but the hundreds of thousands of voters who opposed this Bill will not forget this failure when it is time to vote in the General Election in a few short months.” I hope this spokesperson is right. I know several prominent pro-life spokespersons in New Zealand who care deeply about the unborn, and who mourn this evil law. I also know how entrenched and relentless pro-abortion advocates can be, and how effective they are in passing increasingly extreme legislation. We’ve certainly witnessed as much in this country, most memorably in New York, where legislators applauded and lit the One World Trade Center in pink to celebrate. Bad laws are built on bad ideas, and bad ideas have victims. The precious and unique lives made in God’s image which will now be legally targeted is a stain on one of the world’s most naturally beautiful and culturally enjoyable nations. I join so many of my friends in New Zealand who hope and pray that this law will prove a step too far, betraying an abortion movement opposed not just by champions of life, but by growing scientific knowledge, by growing compassion for children with disabilities, by the amazing medical breakthroughs in life-saving technologies, and by the unshakeable truth that unborn persons are fully human and worthy of life.
