A law lecturer has come out against the arrest of anti-lockdown protesters in Auckland yesterday, calling it the death of democracy
An AUT law lecturer has come under fire for posting a video in which she calls the arrests of Billy Te Kahika Jr and Vinny Eastwood a sign of the “death of democracy”.
Amy Benjamin, a lecturer of international law, went public with her take on the outcome of Thursday’s protest last night on YouTube.
She called the decision to go into a snap lockdown an “insane policy that probably amounts to a crime against humanity”.
In the video, she voiced outrage that Te Kahika Jr was arrested for peacefully protesting – which runs counter to police’s statement the arrest was made for the breach of the health order.

As we reported on Monday, France President Emmanuel Macon announced new COVID measures that included mandatory COVID vaccines for health workers, a “health pass” to access the cinema, trains, restaurants as well as in hospitals, retirement homes, medical and social establishments, but also in planes, trains and buses for long trips, curfews, and even “pension reform” where people will “have to work longer and retire later.”
Today was Bastille Day in France, and many people took to the streets to protest, and many clashed with police. Here are some of the videos appearing on Twitter.

This illustrates how the military on our streets is becoming the ‘norm’. It is happening here in NZ also… with the military drills we’ve seen going on for years now, with international troops.

Ever wonder why police look like soldiers? With the 1033 Programs, “Protect and Serve” Became “Search and Destroy”
The police should not look like a military force!
Quick facts on Police Militarization:
• Pentagon’s Excess Property Program (1033 Program) has supplied police departments across the country with more than $4.3 billion in gear since 1997. This includes $449 million in 2013.
• St. Louis County, where Ferguson is located, received two military vehicles, a trailer, a generator, 12 5.56-millimeter rifles and six .45 caliber pistols from the Pentagon.
• Military style police raids have increased in recent years, with one count putting the number at 80,000 such raids last year.
• In SWAT style raids, people of color are most affected – 37% were Black, 12% Latino, and 19% White. Race was not known for the remainder.
Police militarization grew out of our failed drug war. Does a town of 2,200 need a massive military tank? Why does the police department in Dundee Michigan need a MRAP (Mine-Resistant, Ambush-Protected vehicle)? They don’t. Military grade gear does not improve the safety and security in small towns. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel must end the flow of military grade gear from the Pentagon to our local communities. It’s time for the militarizing of police to end.
Last month, protests in Ferguson, MO turned violent after police showed up in full SWAT gear after fellow officer Darren Wilson shot and killed Michael Brown. But Ferguson isn’t the only community receiving military grade weaponry from the Pentagon.
We need to roll back programs 1033, 1122, and the National Defense Authorization Act. Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri will chair a subcommittee hearing tomorrow on Capitol Hill looking into police militarization.

“F-15s and nuclear weapons’: Biden brushes off point of 2nd Amendment & undermines ‘insurrection’ narrative in gun control push
Planet Free Will / Nebojsa Malic | RT
President Joe Biden’s new gun control crusade challenged the US founding fathers as well as the Democrats’ own January 6 “insurrection” narrative, by arguing armed citizenry would have no hope against an oppressive government.
“Those who say the blood of patriots y’know and all the stuff about how we’re going to have to move against the government. Well the tree of liberty is not watered with the blood of patriots,” Biden said on Wednesday, announcing new gun control actions from the White House. “What’s happened is, that there never been, if you wanted, you think you need to have weapons to take on the government, you need F-15s and maybe some nuclear weapons,” he continued.
President Biden: “The 2nd Amendment from the day it was passed limited the type of people who could own a gun, and what type of weapon you could own. You couldn’t buy a cannon … If you think you need weapons to take on the govt, you need F-15s & maybe some nuclear weapons.” pic.twitter.com/BdfI9pbmVh

“Bitchute is routinely targeted by governments because it provides a platform for controversial content that isn’t permitted on YouTube“
by Paul Joseph Watson
Authorities in Denmark have shut down much of the country’s access to video platform Bitchute in the name of preventing the spread of “dangerous information” about COVID.
Denmark’s National Police Cyber Crime Center (NC3) petitioned for a court order to block the site and ISPs followed suit by blocking access to users.
“The National Police Cyber Crime Center (NC3) has blocked the homepage that your browser has tried to access contact as there is reason to assume that from the website commits a violation of criminal law, which has a background in or connection with the covid-19 epidemic in Denmark,” states a message users see when trying to access Bitchute.
It then advises the owner of the website that they will have to contact the authorities in order to try to get the website back online.
“The block appears to be site-wide meaning that Danish citizens aren’t just being prevented from viewing alleged COVID-19 misinformation on BitChute – they’re being blocked from viewing any BitChute videos, regardless of the topic,” writes Tom Parker.
Making an example of dissenters? See our previous posts on this pastor. As he rightly points out, why descend on his church during a service? Why do they not contact him and make an appointment outside of those hours?

An article from the Herald we posted a link to this morning, originally included a sentence stating that Auckland woman, Pauline Hanna who passed away at Easter, had had her second covid shot the day prior. I quoted from it:
“‘A source told the Herald [Pauline] Hanna was still sending work emails at 10pm on Sunday and that she had had her second Covid-19 vaccine earlier that day.‘
Sincere condolences to this family.“
That sentence has since been edited out of the online version, however it remains in the hard copy (see below). Why did they remove this detail about the shot?
The NZ Herald have now updated their retraction of the sentence with:
Note: Those who opt not to vaccinate or who question the official narrative are frequently referred to as ‘anti-vaxxers’. These people are not ‘anti’ anything, they are simply pro-informed choice.
With all due respect to this family … given a full Police investigation is in progress, it is intriguing that a conclusion has already been reached that this is not related to an experimental injection administered the day before, when the FDA clearly lists death as a possible adverse effect.
To read FDA’s draft list of possible outcomes download the document, the list is on page 17:
“A source told the Herald [Pauline] Hanna was still sending work emails at 10pm on Sunday and that she had had her second Covid-19 vaccine earlier that day.”
Sincere condolences to this family.

I believe that this is the US. Much bluff is going on as I hear from people in other places. I get interesting feed back even from NZ on the bluffing that happened during our major lockdown in 2020, where ‘Nazis’ (officials from various health/local/authorities etc) show up at said venue ordering them to shut down. (In the instances I’ve heard… shops basically). When bluff was called they did not return. That looks like outright bullying and intimidating folks into believing they had to. This is illustrated clearly in this video. The bullies stand around a bit trying to get a word in, but clearly have no legal mandate (or they would stay & arrest or enforce their ‘laws’), instead they all retreat & clear off. Remember the suicides we had in NZ? A butcher in Auckland took his life, his business ruined. Very sad. Does Jacinda Adern care about those? I don’t believe so. EWR

The Pentagon has authorized up to 25,000 National Guard members to help secure Washington, DC, for President-elect Joe Biden’s Inauguration Day. That’s in addition to the thousands of US Secret Service, Capitol Police, and DC police that will be out in force for the event.
That’s a massive security presence. For comparison, that’s about half the entire number of US troops currently stationed in Japan. President Barack Obama’s “surge” of additional US troops to Afghanistan in late 2009 consisted of 30,000 troops.
And so far, nobody — from the US Secret Service to the FBI to the National Guard itself — has provided a clear reason for why such a huge force is necessary to secure the nation’s capital.

“Policias por la libertad” “Cops for freedom”
There are many unanswered questions about how technologies are being used, why they are necessary, and whether they risk infringing on human rights or privacy, write Andrew Chen and Kristiann Allen.
The idea of “emergence”, in a philosophical sense, is the notion that a system can have properties, behaviours and naturally forming rules or patterns that individual parts of the system do not have by themselves – the interactions between the components create something new. Snowflakes demonstrate this phenomenon, where individual ice crystals form and grow as they circulate in the air, leading to unpredictable but complex patterns. This perspective considers how seemingly independent parts of a system co-evolve.
Earlier this month, RNZ reported on New Zealand Police’s Review of Emergent Technologies. It included a stocktake of technologies “tested, trialled or rolled out” by NZ Police, from locating where 111 calls are coming from to facial recognition technology for finding people in CCTV footage. In total, 20 technologies were identified with a further nine “under consideration”. The review was urgently commissioned after the police commissioner was caught unaware that the High Tech Crime Unit had trialled the controversial Clearview AI product – understandably, he wanted to know if there were any other unknown surprises on the horizon.
In the video below (that relates also to other matters concerning whistleblowing NSW Police & covid-19), Australian Lawyer Peter Little calls out the government on their approval of weather modification technology (rain making by cloud seeding) … and the disappearance of the records pertaining to the Act (Rain-Making Control Act 1967). Peter mentions the Act in the first two minutes of the video, then expands further when speaking with Melbourne Police to register his complaint.

More arrests including a 69 YO. Some of these kinds of events are actually acted. It’s difficult to tell but the clue is they openly advertise for crisis actors and employ them to create false flags. Ole Dammegard is an expert in that field having researched them globally for 3 decades. Check out his work. Either way, if they are crisis actors or the real deal they are sending the same fear message to you. Also, at the end of the day the more you react, the greater ‘license’ they have to crack down. The second video is a raid of a fruit and veggie farmers market. Folk out peacefully shopping for food got raided by black clad law enforcement that are looking more like Darth Vader every day. (Note, the signage below was captured at a NZ farmers market … no talking longer than 10 minutes).
Have you noticed that they are not raiding supermarkets like this? Same food sold. You need to ask yourself why. Last lockdown in NZ a local small fruit and veg outlet told me they were bullied by council to close. The outlet had their paperwork all done so their opening was legal by the then current standards, yet were paid a visit by the local council heavies to close down. They didn’t close down. This is not an isolated case, I’ve heard of others in other towns.
I hope the parents are explaining to their children what is happening with all this as such scenarios would strike fear into any child’s mind. (The masks, the Vader get ups, the arrests of parents in front of screaming children). We have had children in NZ trying to take their own lives, is it any wonder? And with suicide deaths exceeding CV deaths. Doesn’t make sense does it? Find out your local suicide stats and compare for the same period in 2019. Nobody much in mainstream is speaking about it. EWR
‘Fear us’ being the clear message they’re sending. On the note of farmers markets, a notice has been circulating on social media (image below) instructing people not to be talking more than 10 minutes. For commentary on that watch the Ice Age Farmer video on topic. Separation being the end game. EWR
A person who was clearly stressed from the sudden ordeal of leaving the country to bury a deceased relative, then returning to a situation he describes as like a prison camp, expressed what he noted as inconsistencies in the rules. From hearing the description of this experience clearly some staff were less than helpful regarding the state of this person’s mental health however going by other people’s experiences this is not unusual. Below is a description of the day to day interaction with the authorities and staff at the quarantine facility supplied through a friend of the detainee. EWR
Timeline in Managed Isolation Experience
My friend had to go to the Netherlands due to his fathers sudden passing. He was the only one in the family that could go and take care of everything. Funeral, house, everything. So he did, and all by himself. His travel wasn’t for ‘fun’, but necessary.
He returned to New Zealand on Wednesday the 12th of August, Central European Time, Amsterdam. (All the dates and times are Central European Time, Amsterdam. Due to me living in the Netherlands). That was the plan, however he could not fly back through the US. The transit wasn’t allowed coming from the Netherlands. Although he did have his ticket pre-booked.
He had to buy a new ticket and fly via Zurich and Hong Kong which ended up to be a 39 hour trip, with all the waiting between flights as well.
August 14th, he arrived at the Auckland Airport. There was a line for supposedly a health check. The only thing that really got checked was his temperature using an infrared scanner. No information whatsoever had been provided. People were put on a bus and transported somewhere. At that moment, it was not clear where they would go. Nor what would happen. Turned out that he was moved to an isolation facility in South Auckland. He was assigned to a room and received an information package.
He also submitted an exemption request, to be allowed to do his isolation at home. The reason he applied is because he is going through a grieving process. After being in the Netherlands to bury his father, flying half way across the world, and then being ‘locked up’ does not have a positive effect on his grieving. And could cause major psychological issues.
August 15th, he got agitated and was rude to the staff. Not overly rude, or aggressive. But after what he had been through, not very patient. He yelled at them and got a warning for his behaviour. Due to this ‘incident’ the police, who are on site 24/7 repeatedly came to his door, wanting to talk. He refused. He told them he was very tired. He went outside into the parking area and at a safe distance (at least 3 meters) lay in the sun and put his mask over his eyes, just to relax a bit. Security came and told him that he had to wear the mask. He refused, because he wasn’t harming anyone at that moment.
The police officer came to his room again, and told him that he had been warned 2 times now, and the 3rd time would mean that he would be arrested. He told him to go away, he is tired and would speak to them the next day.
August 16th, He went outside again to have a coffee in the sun. Again, very safe distance (at least 3 meters) and the police came and told him to put the mask on. He refused. He was drinking and did not see the point in wearing the mask, when he wasn’t a threat to anyone else.
My friend decided to stay in his room after this ‘incident’.
When speaking to the nurse that day, he asked about his exemption application. She told him she would make sure to ‘fast track’ it. He asked when he would be tested because it was day 3. The information package stated that people would be tested ‘around’ day 3 and day 12. They told him, probably today, or tomorrow.
August 17th, He would be taken for a walk. Supposedly in a park. (There is a feed on Twitter that visualises the 14 days in a more then friendly manner) however, the walk in the park turned out to be a walk of 200 meters to the next carpark, where they where allowed to walk about for a bit.
And the nurses told him he would be tested today, or the day after. When walking downstairs to go and have his walk in the ‘park’ he was addressed quite aggressively by the staff. He supposedly was wearing his mask upside down, or inside out… he told the staff member that he felt like they were picking on him and the staff threatened him that he would not be allowed to go to the park. My friend decided to go back to his room. The staff kept on threatening him, and told him he could be removed from this facility and taken elsewhere, because he had already had 2 warnings (as in being arrested and detained).
Looking at the information package, and the instructions. He would not have been allowed to touch the mask in any way when out of his room…
Meanwhile, he took some pictures of staff not wearing masks in the carpark.
August 18th, conversation with the nurse. He will be tested later that day. He went downstairs to level 2 to get tested and was confronted with military staff being on that floor as well. Very intimidating. At that moment, there is security staff, police officers and the military.
He was told that the test results would take up to 72 hours. He asked about his exemption application. And was told that they had not yet heard back on this.
My friend’s girlfriend came to the facility to drop off some groceries. But initially was told to go back home. She did not have a receipt. She did not accept that and talked to the management. And after some time, they did accept the groceries.
August 19th, no news on the exemption application. Other than them receiving it (by this time I had been posting lots on Twitter, telling people about the ‘real’ isolation) and my friend got told that there would be huge fines for taking pictures and posting them on social media.
August 20th, nothing shocking.
August 21st, my friend asked the nurse about the exemption application again. She then called MIQ. The reply was that they had been swamped, and did not know when they would be able to get back to him.
August 22nd no results on his test yet. The nurses told him that this would probably mean that it is negative. However the information package states that you get a phone call or a text message with the results. My friend also asked about his exemption application. But they hadn’t heard back.
August 23rd, asked again on the exemption application. Nothing. And no test results.
August 24th, my friend talked to one of the nurses, the kind one. Asked about the test result. Nurse told him it was negative.
Here in the Netherlands it is still August 24th. And I am hoping to hear from my friend again by tonight. However, writing this timeline, breaks my heart again. It seems, and I am not a fan of conspiracy theories, that every time that I have tried to get out some information on reality in New Zealand, the media come up with a plausible explanation as to the failure of the NZ government.
He is a very dear friend. And it is wrong what they are doing.

The question is how justified are these “emergency powers” when the need for urgency is open to question and when there is a worldwide agenda to remove human rights under Agenda 2030, of which one of the most enthusiastic supporters (shown by this meeting of PM Adern with the Gates’).
All kudos to Simon O’Connor in calling out NZ’s Parliament on the proverbial ‘king’s new clothes’. Who else is speaking out? Nobody that I’ve noticed except those dubbed by the sleeping masses as ‘conspiracy theorists’. So we’ve had two months of virtual house arrest followed by the inability to shop without leaving contact details (over a plague with a 0.2% death rate). I’m all for the precautionary principle however this overkill has destroyed many lives. Note, Police can now enter your home without a search warrant. You are losing your democratic rights, one law at a time.

About as predictable as you could get … please do read the New World Order & Agenda 21/30 pages (main menu) all you people who’ve labeled us conspiracy theorists for years, have a read folks. It’s right in your faces now. The right (manufactured) crisis has arrived. They’ve removed our borders as planned … gained control via their predatory loans.
“We are at present working discreetly, with all our might, to wrest this mysterious force called sovereignty out of the clutches of the local nation states of the world. And all the time we are denying with our lips what we are doing with our hands.” Arnold Toynbee – International Affairs, p.809, November 1931
They’ve created the crisis & now in true ‘problem, reaction, solution’ style they are going to usher in the global governance they’ve been talking publicly about since the early ’90s.
I assure you it won’t be pretty. Don’t for one minute think you will be electing the coming world leader to run this global government. I am sure he/she will be appointed. These liars profess they care, in fact if you hadn’t noticed they’ve been trying hard to depopulate us for decades with those life-saving vaccines that Bill Gates funds.

If the US doesn’t couple its efforts to rebuild its own economy with the first steps toward creating a global government, humanity is doomed, Kissinger wrote in a recent Wall Street Journal op-ed.
“No country, not even the US, can in a purely national effort overcome the virus,” Kissinger warned. “Addressing the necessities of the moment must ultimately be coupled with a global collaborative vision and program.”
If we cannot do both in tandem, we will face the worst of each.
Kissinger laments that the pandemic has led to the return of a “walled city” model of nationalist governance, suggesting that “exploration at the frontiers of science” alone can save humanity from disease in his vision of a globalist utopia. But developing cures takes time, and the notion that countries should be discouraged from protecting themselves in the interim is suicidal. If anything, one of the reasons Italy, Spain, and France were hit so hard by coronavirus was the EU’s dysfunctional insistence on open borders amid the pandemic.
“Global trade and movement of people” are all well and good, but the pandemic has exposed the weaknesses of the globalist system like never before. It will take years for nations to rebuild, and repeating their mistakes is not something they can afford to do.
While serving as Secretary of State and National Security Adviser under presidents Nixon and Ford, Kissinger played a starring role in bombing campaigns against Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos and oversaw regime-change operations that placed brutal dictators in power in Argentina and Chile, as well as supporting state-sanctioned repression in Indonesia. A notorious report he penned for the Ford administration called for dramatic reductions in population growth across developing nations. One might think, given his record, that he’d be on the side of the virus.
But the Nobel Peace Prize recipient is here presenting himself as an experienced statesman who deeply cares about the future of humanity, calling on the US to “draw lessons from the development of the Marshall Plan and the Manhattan Project.” Sure, revisiting the Marshall Plan makes sense – there are no doubt insights to be gained from revisiting the rebuilding of Europe’s shattered post-war economies, especially since some of the countries hit hardest by the epidemic are in Europe.
Also on rt.com ‘Big mistake’: Italy blasts European Commission chief, says Europe needs ‘great Marshall Plan’ to battle pandemic crisis But the Manhattan Project? How does a top-secret, international doomsday project that produced weapons with unparalleled killing potential have any bearing on the coronavirus crisis?
Listening to Kissinger, it must be said, is what got the US into its current situation – believing itself exceptional, distrusting all world powers who do not swear abject fealty to it, repeating the same failed policies to the point of parody. A looming presence in the George W. Bush administration, Kissinger advised the country to plunge headfirst into the ever-expanding War on Terror, penning an editorial in the days following 9/11 that called for taking on “any government that shelters groups capable of this kind of attack.” Following such guidance has bankrupted the US and turned it into a banana republic, printing money frantically while its roads and bridges crumble, its citizens struggle to keep a roof over their heads, and the international community looks on, mouths agape, as its government continues to lecture them about human rights.
Kissinger concludes his jeremiad with a warning that “failure [to safeguard the principles of the liberal world order] could set the world on fire.” If, as he himself writes, the “purpose of the legitimate state is to provide for the fundamental needs of the people: security, order, economic well-being, and justice,” those principles collapsed long ago. The US’ first step, post-pandemic, should be to put out the fires set by Kissinger and those like him who seek to cloak empire in the rhetoric of liberal democracy.

Police will be operating checkpoints over the Easter weekend to check people are abiding by the lockdown regulations.
Anyone attempting to travel to their bach or holiday home or to make non-essential visits to people outside their bubble will be educated, warned and when necessary arrested, police say.
Police will be ramping up their presence in the community and on the roads this long weekend to ensure people are complying with the Covid-19 Alert Level 4 restrictions.
“We know many New Zealanders may have been planning to catch up with friends and family this weekend, or travel to traditional holiday destinations but we urge anyone who was planning to do this – please change your plans and stay home,” police said in a statement.
