“VACCINATE….VACCINATE….VACCINATE….IS THERE NOTHING WE CAN DO TO STRENGTHEN OUR INNATE IMMUNITY?
Every day I spend 15 minutes with “full body sun exposure” in peak sunshine hours?
Why would I do something so “crazy”?
Why not sunblock and shade hugging?
Remember I said only 15 minutes….and why? Because this summer (more than ever before) I have consciously worked to build up my vitamin D levels, ready for the long winter months ahead.
Why now more than ever?
Because study after study after study after study (you get the picture) illustrates that one of the self protective steps we can take, to boost our natural protection and resilience against Covid 19, is to elevate our vitamin D levels.
New Zealanders are chronically vitamin D deficient…largely because of our Sun Smart messaging of sunblock, hats and shade hugging.
While the benefits of this may be skin cancer reduction…the price we pay is a nation hovering on the brink of endemic Vitamin D deficiency.
Which New Zealanders are MOST vitamin D deficient?
Elderly, frail, and living in care (they rarely get outside)….and those with naturally dark skin (Maori, Pacifica etc).
To care for myself I will also be supplementing my diet with vitamin D throughout the winter months…but more on that in a post to come.
Sharing below, the insights from Dr James Chestnut ….Gross Negligence, Malpractice, and Preventable Death and Suffering – Where is the public health recommendation for sufficient Vitamin D intake?
There is unequivocal evidence regarding the importance of Vit D for immune function in general and, specifically, with respect to immunity against COVID-19 and influenza. As I have pointed out many times, physiological and biochemical research evidence is clear that Vit D is required by the white blood cells of the innate immune system to epigenetically upregulate the production of AMPs or antimicrobial proteins, and by the T-cells of the humoral immune system, especially the Treg or T-regulatory cells, to control inflammation and thus prevent Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) – the leading cause of death associated with both COVID-19 and Influenza. For months, in fact years, I have been lecturing, and writing research reviews, newsletters, and articles, about the peer-reviewed evidence regarding the importance of Vitamin D (and proper synergistic amounts of Vitamin A), and Omega-3 fatty acids, for both immune health and the prevention of, and risk reduction from, respiratory illnesses caused by influenza, Corona, and Rhino viruses, and severe complications from these respiratory illnesses such as ARDS caused by excess inflammation. I have also lectured and written extensively for two decades about the importance of these essential nutrients for the prevention of, and risk reduction and healing from, the most common chronic illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, digestive problems, and emotional anxiety and depression. Keep in mind, these are the comorbidities that also lead to higher hospitalization and death rates from COVID-19 – and FLU. The research illustrating the fact that deficiencies in these essential nutrients are significant factors in the underlying causes of both acute respiratory and chronic systemic illnesses (immune system dysfunction, chronic inflammation, high blood sugar/insulin resistance, gut dysbiosis and inflammation, and depression and anxiety – to name a few) is unequivocal and undeniable.
Years ago, based on the research evidence, I created Innate Choice OmegA+D Sufficiency, a combination of cod liver oil (Omega-3, Vit D, and Vit A) and Omega-3 fish oil (Omega-3 fatty acids), with added extra Vit D, in order to supply sufficient amounts of these essential nutrients as well as the proper synergistic combination of these essential nutrients. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic I also created an Evidence-Based COVID-19 and FLU Prevention and Risk Reduction Protocol that was based on the best available evidence. Please go to www.innatechoice.com for more information.In what can only be considered a carte blanche endorsement and validation of this Evidence-Based COVID-19 and Flu Prevention and Risk Reduction Protocol, is the recent December 2020 open letter signed by over 100 top scientists, doctors, and leading health authorities, and sent to all governments, public health officials, doctors, and healthcare workers calling for universal supplementation with Vitamin D to reduce COVID-19 infections and related deaths. Here is the link to this open letter http://innatechoice.com/…/Dec_2020_COVID-19_Vitamin_D.pdf
PLEASE ensure you and your loved ones are getting sufficient intake of these essential nutrients. There simply is not a more evidence-based, more cost-effective way to improve your immune function and protect yourself from COVID-19 and FLU.

Since there’s way more to this ‘plague’ than we’ve been told or meets the eye so to speak I figure as always, as I oft repeat with the 1080 issue, practice the precautionary principle anyway. Everything to gain and nothing to lose in my opinion.
“The precautionary principle is the concept that establishes it is better to avoid or mitigate an action or policy that has the plausible potential, based on scientific analysis, to result in major or irreversible negative consequences to the environment or public even if the consequences of that activity are not conclusively known, with the burden of proof that it is not harmful falling on those proposing the action. It is a major principle of international environmental law and is extended to other areas and jurisdictions as well.” (New World Encylopedia)

March 21, 2020
As you know, a novel coronavirus (initially labeled 2019-nCOV before being renamed COVID-19 by the World Health Organization1) originating in Wuhan City, Hubei Province in China, is rapidly spreading across the world.
The first case was reported in Wuhan on December 21, 2019. Symptoms include fever, shortness of breath, severe cough and pneumonia which, in more severe cases, can lead to impaired kidney and liver function and kidney failure.2,3
On January 21, 2020, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed the first U.S. case4 — a patient in Washington state who had recently visited Wuhan. Then, the first U.S. death was reported February 29, 2020, in Washington state.5
Less than a week later, CBS News reported March 5, 2020, that the number of deaths had quickly risen to 11 nationwide in the U.S. — 10 in Washington state and one in California.6 Not only that, but as of that day, “The World Health Organization urged governments around the world to pull out ‘all the stops’” to fight the outbreak. On the up side, China “appeared to be over the worst” of it, CBS said.
All told, as of March 5, 2020, there were 98,067 reported cases of novel coronavirus infections affecting 88 countries, 80,430 of which were in China. Worldometer.info provides an easy overview of confirmed cases and deaths that you can check for the latest statistics.7
COVID-19 — A Weaponized Coronavirus?
In this interview, Francis Boyle — whose background includes an undergraduate degree from the University of Chicago, a juris doctor (lawyer) degree from Harvard and a Ph.D. in political science — shares his theory of the origin of this novel coronavirus.
For decades, he’s advocated against the development and use of bioweapons, which he suspects COVID-19 is. In fact, Boyle was the one who called for biowarfare legislation at the Biological Weapons Convention of 1972, and the one who drafted the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989, which was passed unanimously by both houses of Congress and signed into law by George Bush, Sr.
At the time of this recording, February 14, 2020, more than 50,000 people in China had been infected with the virus. Certainly, it does not originate from infected bat soup.
As a result of Boyle’s antibiological warfare work, which goes back to the early days of the Reagan administration — a time in which they were using DNA genetic engineering to manufacture biological weapons — Boyle has carefully followed “mysterious outbreaks of disease in both humans and animals around the world” that have appeared since then.
“My biowarfare antiterrorism act was specifically designed to not only to deal with regular biological weapons but also with DNA genetic engineering for biological weapons that was just coming into its infancy when the BWC was being drafted.
Even though the BWC would cover DNA genetic engineering, I wanted to make it clear by name that it was covered. I also made it clear [that] it covered synthetic biology as well,” Boyle says.
“So, when these unexplained mysterious illnesses break out, I monitor them a while and usually I just conclude they can be explained by normal reasons: lack of sanitation, poverty, things of that nature. But in Wuhan it seemed pretty suspicious to me.
A heads up on a book soon to be released by Dr Mercola … I see it is just $2.15 for kindle version. By a Medical Doctor who in spite of the desperate ‘fact checkers’ warnings you will encounter on your way to the Amazon website here … will have more truth on the associated dangers of emfs & particularly 5G than mainstream will ever be telling you. Here are some links to articles by Dr Mercola on 5G:
“The dangers of electromagnetic fields are real–and now a renowned health authority reveals exactly what they are and how you can protect yourself.
The hazards of electronic pollution may once have been the stuff of science fiction, but now we know they’re all too real. And with the advent of 5G ultra-wideband technology, the danger is greater than ever.
Dr. Joseph Mercola, one of the world’s foremost authorities on alternative health, has mined the scientific literature to offer a radical new understanding of how electromagnetic fields impact your body and mind. In this first-of-its-kind guide, he reveals:
• What EMFs (electromagnetic fields) actually are, where you find them in your daily life, and how they affect you
• The toll that EMFs have been proven to take in conditions such as cancer, heart disease, and neuropsychiatric illnesses
• Why you’ve been largely kept in the dark about this threat to your health
• How you can actually repair the damage done by EMFs at a cellular level
• Practical strategies to protect yourself and your loved ones from EMFs at home, at work, and out in the world
The coming 5G technology will be pervasive and powerful. It will also be one of the largest public-health experiments in history-with no way of opting out. That’s why you need to read this book. Now.” SOURCE (Amazon)

A South Island iwi hope their freshwater spring will gain environmental protection after a local council granted a water bottling company consent to take 208 million litres a year for $470.
Already in the Tasman district, four water bottling companies have consent to take water from the area – at more than 427 million litres at a cost of $943.
In 2005, Tasman District Council gave Kahurangi Virgin Water Ltd consent to extract water near Te Waikoropupu Springs, which has one of the clearest freshwater in the world.
The company has yet to take any water from the sacred site and have applied for an extension. Local iwi Ngāti Tama was initially involved with the original resource consent but were not consulted about the extension and took the council to the High Court.
Ngāti Tama spokesperson Margaret Little says the springs need to be preserved and their court action was funded by the iwi’s Treaty settlement.
“The settlement has given us the financial backing to take them to court whereas before it would have been really difficult,” Little says.
Earlier this month, the Government announced it will consider giving the springs the highest level of conservation protection and grant it the same status as a national park.
Ngāti Tama says commercial demands from irrigation, farming and consent to take water from the Waikoropupu catchment are putting the resource under threat.
Andrew Yuill a local scientist and co-applicant along with Ngāti Tama say Te Waikoropupu is worth protecting for all New Zealanders.
“The clarity of the water was measured at a sight path of 63 metres which is almost unheard of. It has been a taonga for millions of years. It has its own life-force its own mauri and it is something which I respect greatly.”
Community Relations Manager Chris Choat from the Tasman District Council says the decision from the High Court means the council will now have to reconsider Kahurangi Virgin Water Limited’s application for a resource consent to draw water near the Te Waikoropupu Springs.
Below is a breakdown of how much water each company can take and the annual cost. Information provided by Tasman District Council.

A taste of things to come? Now your guns are gone you’ll be needing their protection even more…? (Thanks to Linda for this link).
Police have bought three bullet-proof SUVs to be used in high-risk firearms incidents and major national security events.
The Toyota Land Cruisers have been fitted with ballistic armour and will be based in Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington but will be deployed across the country as needed, a police media statement said.
The vehicles won’t carry arms, but staff in the vehicles will be armed.
* The Detail: Concerns raised over armed police patrols
* Police to trial new armed unit after terror attack, ongoing meth and organised crime risk
* New Zealand police already halfway armed, time to become fully armed
Police have budgeted $1.23 million for the three vehicles, which includes training and ongoing maintenance.
The SUVs will be operational this month.

A few questions we need to be asking …
“I wonder if even one MP asked why DoC staff feel so threatened that they need $11 million of public money to protect their staff against the NZ public they are supposed to represent when New Zealanders generally love the Outdoors?
I wonder why they went ahead anyway and gave them more of our money to build more barriers between us, and more money to spread yet more poison – despite all the evidence of cruelty, breaches of the Wildlife and Animal Welfare Act and that it is not achieving their stated objective? If poison is the answer, surely we are asking the wrong question. .
UK: Jon Wedger, a retired police detective who served with Scotland yard for 27 years and specialized in pedophile rings, reveals how police protect politicians, celebrities, and other powerful people who commit pedophilia. [Child sex abuse is a political strategy that creates a means to control politicians and judges through blackmail. It has become a standard method of operation at the highest levels in almost all governments of the world, which is why it is so difficult to get governments to clean it up.] GEG
Summary by JW WIlliams
Police veteran Jon Wedger explains in this in-depth interview the conspiracy of cover-ups that come from the top when the names of prominent people are discovered. He says that care homes, residential homes for children who have been separated from their families, were the source of sexual abuse and rape, and led to prostitution, drug abuse and other crimes. He was removed from a number of positions after uncovering child sex abuse, because police in top positions are complicit or covering up for politicians, celebrities and other powerful people.
He was warned by the chief superintendent that child prostitution ran so deep with people who were connected that, if he continued to pursue the issue, he would lose his job, his house, and his children. After Wedger blew the whistle on police cover-ups, he was bullied and threatened.
Wedger investigated the child-protection industry and discovered the lucrative business of privately run care homes that can pay owners over $2,500 per child per week. He says the abuse and prostitution in the care homes is an organized-crime operation involving high-ranking police and politicians. Wedger says the kids are being picked up from the care homes, abused, and then returned after the weekend. 80% of trafficking is within the family or those who have been given parental authority over the children. Sexual assault on children happens in all racial groups. All religious institutions have a problem with pedophilia but are protected by law enforcement. There is only a 2% prosecution rate on child prostitution.
Currently, Wedger works with victims of abuse, campaigns for police whistleblowers and helps victims put cases back together after police cover them up. Victims have identified Edward (Ted) Heath, Britain’s Prime Minister from 1970 to 1974, as a sexual abuser of young boys from care homes, showing that abusers can reach the loftiest positions, in spite of (or perhaps because of) their crimes.
This is a long interview but , if you want to know what it’s like in the real world of vice and human trafficking high in government, you cannot find a better source than this.
In May 2018 the EU banned three of the significant pesticides implicated in the collapse of bee populations. Clothianidin, imidacloprid and thiamethoxam are now prohibited for use on crops.
However France has gone a step further and set the high bar in the effort to save the bees. Given the importance of pollinators to nature and the survival of the biosphere, this could not happen too soon!
Studies have reported that the neonicotinoid pesticides attack the central nervous system of insects, leading to loss of memory and homing skills, in addition to reduced fertility. Bees that cannot find their way back to the hive quickly die. However the pesticides have also been shown to affect butterflies, birds and other pollinating insects.
There is a reason why France is ahead of the field in this regard: The “bee killing” pesticides were tested first on French fields in the 1990’s – and the French farmers witnessed first-hand the catastrophic effects that occurred in 1994; describing “a carpet of dead bees”. 400,000 bee colonies died within days – yet the story was buried under a layer of corruption and distorted science.
Since that time, activists and manufacturers have battled to control the situation. We covered this story in full in a previous post: Overwhelming Evidence Linking Neonicotinoid Insecticides To Massive Die-off Of Bees And Songbirds
The new move is certain to be celebrated by ecologists and sets an example of protection of nature that the rest of the world needs to follow.
An Open Letter to Legislators Currently Considering Vaccine Legislation from Tetyana Obukhanych, PhD
My name is Tetyana Obukhanych. I hold a PhD in Immunology. I am writing this letter in the hope that it will correct several common misperceptions about vaccines in order to help you formulate a fair and balanced understanding that is supported by accepted vaccine theory and new scientific findings.
Do unvaccinated children pose a higher threat to the public than the vaccinated?
It is often stated that those who choose not to vaccinate their children for reasons of conscience endanger the rest of the public, and this is the rationale behind most of the legislation to end vaccine exemptions currently being considered by federal and state legislators country-wide.
You should be aware that the nature of protection afforded by many modern vaccines – and that includes most of the vaccines recommended by the CDC for children – is not consistent with such a statement.
I have outlined below the recommended vaccines that cannot prevent transmission of disease either because they are not designed to prevent the transmission of infection (rather, they are intended to prevent disease symptoms), or because they are for non-communicable diseases.
People who have not received the vaccines mentioned below pose no higher threat to the general public than those who have, implying that discrimination against non-immunized children in a public school setting may not be warranted.
1. IPV (inactivated poliovirus vaccine) cannot prevent transmission of poliovirus. (see appendix for the scientific study, Item #1). Wild poliovirus has been non-existent in the USA for at least two decades. Even if wild poliovirus were to be re-imported by travel, vaccinating for polio with IPV cannot affect the safety of public spaces. Please note that wild poliovirus eradication is attributed to the use of a different vaccine, OPV or oral poliovirus vaccine. Despite being capable of preventing wild poliovirus transmission, use of OPV was phased out long ago in the USA and replaced with IPV due to safety concerns.
2. Tetanus is not a contagious disease, but rather acquired from deep-puncture wounds contaminated with C. tetani spores. Vaccinating for tetanus (via the DTaP combination vaccine) cannot alter the safety of public spaces; it is intended to render personal protection only.
3. While intended to prevent the disease-causing effects of the diphtheria toxin, the diphtheria toxoid vaccine (also contained in the DTaP vaccine) is not designed to prevent colonization and transmission of C. diphtheriae. Vaccinating for diphtheria cannot alter the safety of public spaces; it is likewise intended for personal protection only.
4. The acellular pertussis (aP) vaccine (the final element of the DTaP combined vaccine), now in use in the USA, replaced the whole cell pertussis vaccine in the late 1990s, which was followed by an unprecedented resurgence of whooping cough. An experiment with deliberate pertussis infection in primates revealed that the aP vaccine is not capable of preventing colonization and transmission of B. pertussis. The FDA has issued a warning regarding this crucial finding. 
Furthermore, the 2013 meeting of the Board of Scientific Counselors at the CDC revealed additional alarming data that pertussis variants (PRN-negative strains) currently circulating in the USA acquired a selective advantage to infect those who are up-to-date for their DTaP boosters, meaning that people who are up-to-date are more likely to be infected, and thus contagious, than people who are not vaccinated.
5. Among numerous types of H. influenzae, the Hib vaccine covers only type b. Despite its sole intention to reduce symptomatic and asymptomatic (disease-less) Hib carriage, the introduction of the Hib vaccine has inadvertently shifted strain dominance towards other types of H. influenzae (types a through f). These types have been causing invasive disease of high severity and increasing incidence in adults in the era of Hib vaccination of children (see appendix for the scientific study, Item #4). The general population is more vulnerable to the invasive disease now than it was prior to the start of the Hib vaccination campaign. Discriminating against children who are not vaccinated for Hib does not make any scientific sense in the era of non-type b H. influenzae disease.
6. Hepatitis B is a blood-borne virus. It does not spread in a community setting, especially among children who are unlikely to engage in high-risk behaviors, such as needle sharing or sex. Vaccinating children for hepatitis B cannot significantly alter the safety of public spaces. Further, school admission is not prohibited for children who are chronic hepatitis B carriers. To prohibit school admission for those who are simply unvaccinated – and do not even carry hepatitis B – would constitute unreasonable and illogical discrimination.
In summary, a person who is not vaccinated with IPV, DTaP, HepB, and Hib vaccines due to reasons of conscience poses no extra danger to the public than a person who is. No discrimination is warranted.
How often do serious vaccine adverse events happen?
It is often stated that vaccination rarely leads to serious adverse events.
Unfortunately, this statement is not supported by science.
A recent study done in Ontario, Canada, established that vaccination actually leads to an emergency room visit for 1 in 168 children following their 12-month vaccination appointment and for 1 in 730 children following their 18-month vaccination appointment (see appendix for a scientific study, Item #5).
When the risk of an adverse event requiring an ER visit after well-baby vaccinations is demonstrably so high, vaccination must remain a choice for parents, who may understandably be unwilling to assume this immediate risk in order to protect their children from diseases that are generally considered mild or that their children may never be exposed to.
Can discrimination against families who oppose vaccines for reasons of conscience prevent future disease outbreaks of communicable viral diseases, such as measles?
Measles research scientists have for a long time been aware of the “measles paradox.” I quote from the article by Poland & Jacobson (1994) “Failure to Reach the Goal of Measles Elimination: Apparent Paradox of Measles Infections in Immunized Persons.” Arch Intern Med 154:1815-1820:
“The apparent paradox is that as measles immunization rates rise to high levels in a population, measles becomes a disease of immunized persons.” 
Further research determined that behind the “measles paradox” is a fraction of the population called LOW VACCINE RESPONDERS. Low-responders are those who respond poorly to the first dose of the measles vaccine. These individuals then mount a weak immune response to subsequent RE-vaccination and quickly return to the pool of “susceptibles’’ within 2-5 years, despite being fully vaccinated. 
Re-vaccination cannot correct low-responsiveness: it appears to be an immuno-genetic trait.  The proportion of low-responders among children was estimated to be 4.7% in the USA. 
Studies of measles outbreaks in Quebec, Canada, and China attest that outbreaks of measles still happen, even when vaccination compliance is in the highest bracket (95-97% or even 99%, see appendix for scientific studies, Items #6&7). This is because even in high vaccine responders, vaccine-induced antibodies wane over time. Vaccine immunity does not equal life-long immunity acquired after natural exposure.
It has been documented that vaccinated persons who develop breakthrough measles are contagious. In fact, two major measles outbreaks in 2011 (in Quebec, Canada, and in New York, NY) were re-imported by previously vaccinated individuals.  
Taken together, these data make it apparent that elimination of vaccine exemptions, currently only utilized by a small percentage of families anyway, will neither solve the problem of disease resurgence nor prevent re-importation and outbreaks of previously eliminated diseases.
Is discrimination against conscientious vaccine objectors the only practical solution?
The majority of measles cases in recent US outbreaks (including the recent Disneyland outbreak) are adults and very young babies, whereas in the pre-vaccination era, measles occurred mainly between the ages 1 and 15.
Natural exposure to measles was followed by lifelong immunity from re-infection, whereas vaccine immunity wanes over time, leaving adults unprotected by their childhood shots. Measles is more dangerous for infants and for adults than for school-aged children.
Despite high chances of exposure in the pre-vaccination era, measles practically never happened in babies much younger than one year of age due to the robust maternal immunity transfer mechanism.
The vulnerability of very young babies to measles today is the direct outcome of the prolonged mass vaccination campaign of the past, during which their mothers, themselves vaccinated in their childhood, were not able to experience measles naturally at a safe school age and establish the lifelong immunity that would also be transferred to their babies and protect them from measles for the first year of life.
Luckily, a therapeutic backup exists to mimic now-eroded maternal immunity. Infants as well as other vulnerable or immunocompromised individuals, are eligible to receive immunoglobulin, a potentially life-saving measure that supplies antibodies directed against the virus to prevent or ameliorate disease upon exposure (see appendix, Item #8).
1) due to the properties of modern vaccines, non-vaccinated individuals pose no greater risk of transmission of polio, diphtheria, pertussis, and numerous non-type b H. influenzae strains than vaccinated individuals do, non-vaccinated individuals pose virtually no danger of transmission of hepatitis B in a school setting, and tetanus is not transmissible at all;
2) there is a significantly elevated risk of emergency room visits after childhood vaccination appointments attesting that vaccination is not risk-free;
3) outbreaks of measles cannot be entirely prevented even if we had nearly perfect vaccination compliance; and
4) an effective method of preventing measles and other viral diseases in vaccine-ineligible infants and the immunocompromised, immunoglobulin, is available for those who may be exposed to these diseases.
Taken together, these four facts make it clear that discrimination in a public school setting against children who are not vaccinated for reasons of conscience is completely unwarranted as the vaccine status of conscientious objectors poses no undue risk to the public.

Over 65 dogs each year are killed in New Zealand by 1080 poisoning. With 1080 frequency and use increasing across New Zealand, pet deaths are on the rise.
READ MORE (and check out the site for other data on 1080 & protecting your pets)
Some of us recall a time when government departments didn’t need ‘protecting’, but then our government and its departments are now corporations. Corporations are ‘needing’ protection from the people who have found them out to be not what we all thought.
The Department of Conservation (DoC) has admitted spending more than $100,000 of taxpayer money on controversial private investigators Thompson & Clark.
Opponents of the 1080 poison have forced DoC to admit it uses the private investigators to monitor their social media, costing $103,187.
However, DoC has since denied ordering them to spy.
“The Department of Conservation has not contracted Thompson and Clark Limited or any other investigator to undertake surveillance,” it told Newshub.
The Department of Conservation (DOC) withheld official information after demands from security firm Thompson and Clark, internal emails show.
Thompson and Clark spied on anti-1080 activists for DOC, sharing intelligence through what it called its “Fusion Centre” – locked, hidden chat channels on messaging app Slack.
The work cost nearly $4000 a month – several government departments are signed up to similar packages – and also included a weekly phone briefing involving senior staff from both organisations.
Through its new rules the New Zealand Government has effectively excluded the spreading of Compound 1080 – a WHO class A1 eco-toxin – from environmental protection legislation, to increase its company profits … TV-Wild
Important information from TV-Wild by the Graf Brothers:
“New Zealand is known for its pure water, mountainous peaks and majestic scenery. Millions of tourists visit every year. They tramp the Great Walks and drink from the mountain streams – a land of milk and honey, 100% Pure! …”
“There is growing concern across New Zealand about the massive use of Compound 1080 poison. Government agencies currently spread 1080 poison bait aerially, across the forests and directly into the waterways – enough poison to kill over 60 million people every year. The poison kills 1000’s of deer, and 100’s of 1000’s of other animals, birds and insects, every year.” (Explore menu at the TV-Wild link for references)
Up until 2017, regional councils issued resource consent certificates to government agencies and contractors that permitted 1080 poison bait to be spread across land and directly into water. However, in 2017, the New Zealand Government changed legislation, and that legislation now permits poison bait to be aerially spread across land and directly into water, without the requirement for a resource consent certificate – effectively excluding the aerial distribution of poison bait, from the protection of the Resource Management Act.
The New Zealand Government owns Orillion, the 1080 poison factory that imports and manufactures 1080 poison, and brodifacoum cereal baits. The factory’s mission statement makes it clear that the company exists for profit.
Through its new rules the New Zealand Government has effectively excluded the spreading of Compound 1080 – a WHO class A1 eco-toxin – from environmental protection legislation, to increase its company profits. “

Naturalhealth365) Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is defined as the ‘unexplained death’ – usually during sleep – of an infant under a year old. And, although (conventionally speaking) many experts say the cause is ‘a combination of physical and sleep environmental factors,’ others blame this tragic event on the toxicity of vaccines.
The peak age for SIDS occurs at a time when infants are undergoing many vaccinations, giving rise to concerns that vaccines and SIDS may be linked. Of course – citing many studies – government health agencies deny this connection. But, there are still heartbreaking accounts that exist of SIDS occurring within hours or days of a vaccination.
As the controversy continues: cardiologist Thomas Levy, MD, JD points to vitamin C as a natural intervention that could potentially protect our children from a vaccine injury or premature death.
Of course most of us need wars like we need a hole in the head. Not the bankers however … war is an endless money spinner for them especially when you can fund both sides. So this ‘wonderful’ new weapon can take down a truck from a mile away, and can also destroy drones, vehicles, rockets, boats and more. We are buttered up with the promise of protecting hospitals and taking out the latest boogey man terrorists (appropriately named ATHENA, patron protectress of various Greek cities) … the essential pre requisites for more war & ‘ka-ching’, profits. Lockheed Martin partially fund the Mahia NZ rocket base along with our faithful-to-the US government/corporation, thanks to Key for that $25 mill that could’ve housed quite a few homeless instead. (See our War and Banking pages on all of that – main menu). A reminder of how money focused ‘protection’ is these days, a screen shot from the weapons fest we had in 2016 hosted by the NZ gov. $10K per head if you wanted to attend dinner with the trimmings. They also catered for the lower incomes so you could get a seat at $5K also, less trimmings. Far from these ‘banquet halls’ of the rich are the dying civilians… the real victims of war. The children. I’m for defense, sure, but our modern day packaging of war is illustrative of what it really is and always has been, corporate profits. Which is why I’ll never be ‘rejoicing’ over any new weaponry.
Silent, invisible, deadly. The powerful ATHENA laser weapon can destroy enemy threats within seconds. It just destroyed five Outlaw drones.
For the United States, thanks to pioneering efforts of American companies like Lockheed Martin and the military, laser weapons are no longer the stuff of Star Wars and Star Trek.
In near-term future battles, the U.S. military can choose to bring laser weapons mounted on vehicles, vessels, and more, to war. By comparison, the weapons of any enemy will look like bows and arrows.
ATHENA, (Advanced Test High Energy Asset), is one of the most exciting of these new American laser weapons. During recent testing with the U.S. Army’s Space and Missile Defense Command at the Army’s White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico, the 30-kilowatt weapon slayed five Outlaw drones. Not toy hobby sized drones, but drones with nearly 11 foot wingspans.
Scoreboard? 100 percent success.
And just two years ago, Lockheed Martin proved that ATHENA could also take down a truck by burning through its hood and engine – and from a mile away.
What are the advantages?
There are many advantages to bringing laser weapons to war. One key advantage is unlimited bullets. As long as there is power, ATHENA would have an unlimited magazine.
Another major advantage is speed. Laser weapons like ATHENA are lethal at the speed of light.
They are also silent, invisible and deadly – three characteristics very handy for stealth and surprise in the battlespace.
Threats can come from any direction. ATHENA’s beam director and turret are designed to match this so the weapons can fire 360 degrees.

The court decision leaves parents with no way to hold vaccine makers accountable and no feasible way to get compensation for the injuries suffered by their children; furthermore, the decision removes all financial incentive for multi-national drug companies to make vaccines as safe as they can be.
A U.S. Supreme Court decision has just given drug companies total liability protection for injuries and deaths caused by government mandated vaccines. The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) called the decision a “betrayal” of the American consumer.
In a 6-2 decision, the Court majority voted to reject substantial evidence that current law was fully intended to protect an American’s right to sue a pharmaceutical corporation for injuries that could have been prevented if the company had elected to make a safer vaccine.
The court decision leaves parents with no way to hold vaccine makers accountable and no feasible way to get compensation for the injuries suffered by their children; furthermore, the decision removes all financial incentive for multi-national drug companies to make vaccines as safe as they can be.
According to EON:
“Hannah Bruesewitz was brain injured by DPT vaccine as a child but she was denied compensation by the U.S. Court of Claims, which administers the federal vaccine injury compensation program created by the 1986 Act that has turned away two out of three plaintiffs.
Her attorneys then sued in civil court, providing evidence that Wyeth-Lederle had the technology to produce a less reactive, purified pertussis vaccine but declined to do so.”
The Supreme Court ruled against Hannah’s family. Hannah, now 19, showed no symptoms of a seizure disorder before the vaccination, and a multitude of tests haven’t indicated any other cause.
Seizure disorders used to be listed on the Vaccine Injury Table, which is used by the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, but the listing was removed a month before the Bruesewitzes originally filed a vaccine injury petition in April 1995.
On February 22, 2011 the U.S. Supreme Court shielded drug companies from all liability for harm caused by vaccines mandated by government when companies could have made a safer vaccine. 1
From now on, drug companies selling vaccines in America will not be held accountable by a jury of our peers in a court of law if those vaccines brain damage us but could have been made less toxic. 2
If you get paralyzed by a flu shot or your child has a serious reaction to a vaccine required for school and becomes learning disabled, epileptic, autistic, asthmatic, diabetic or mentally retarded, you are on your own. 345678910111213141516
From now on – unless we stand up and draw the line on vaccine mandates – the government can legally use police powers to force every American to get hundreds of vaccinations or be punished while those, who are hurt by vaccination, can be more easily swept under the rug and left to fend for themselves. 17 18 19 20
To understand how this happened, we have to turn the clock back to 1982. That is when four big drug companies (Merck, Wyeth, Lederle, Connaught) blackmailed Congress by threatening to stop selling vaccines in America unless a law was passed giving them complete immunity from prosecution. 21
The pharmaceutical industry knew they were in big trouble because the old, crude whooping cough vaccine in the DPT shot was causing brain inflammation and death in many children; 22 the live oral polio vaccine was crippling children and adults with vaccine strain polio; 23
Americans were filing lawsuits to hold drug companies responsible for the safety of their products.
On February 23, 2011, one day after the Supreme Court blocked lawsuits against drug companies for failing to make vaccines safer, they cleared the way for lawsuits against car manufacturers for failing to make seat belts safer. 24
Civil liability is a consumer protection. In the past, civil liability has protected us from wealthy tobacco corporations selling cigarettes that were once endorsed by doctors and the U.S. government. 25 26
The GM Contamination Register database is run by Genewatch and Greenpeace and contains cases of genetically modified (GM) contamination dating from 1997. The authors of a 2014 paper, published in the International Journal of Food Contamination, analysed 400 or so cases in the database by crop and country.
GM rice accounted for about a third of contamination cases, despite the fact there is officially no GM rice grown anywhere in the world. They also focused on cases of contamination arising from unauthorised GM crops: those without any authorisation for commercial growing anywhere in the world. Nine cases were discovered of GM contamination of these unauthorised (non-commercialised) GM crops that haven’t undergone any environmental or food safety analysis. The authors argue that once GM contamination has happened, it can be difficult to contain.
Don Westfall, biotech industry consultant and vice-president of Promar International back in 2001, was at the time quoted by the Toronto Star (9 January 2001) as saying that the hope of the GM industry is that over time the market is so flooded with genetically modified organisms (GMOs) that there’s nothing you can do about it; you just sort of surrender.
It is not just a vague hope. It is an intentional strategy.
(NaturalHealth365) Josh del Sol Beaulieu, the filmmaker who brought you the investigative “smart” grid documentary film Take Back Your Power, has teamed up with some extraordinary individuals to launch the InPower Movement, an actionable solutions-based follow-up offering a method to hold accountable those who continue to cause harm with smart meters and 5G technology.
The award-winning 2013 documentary film investigates the so-called “smart” utility meters and smart grid, revealing the shocking cost increases and corruption, privacy and surveillance, home fires, health effects, hacking vulnerability, and global agenda to place a “smart” meter on every home and business in the world. As part of the InPower launch, the team has just re-released Take Back Your Power 2017.

Take Back Your Power uncovers the spiraling problems and harms behind the global “smart” grid agenda. In the few years since its world-wide release, viewers have been consistently shocked, dismayed, disillusioned, and outraged. They have widely shared the film, engaged in conversations, and publicly unveiled their own stories about how “smart” meters have negatively impacted their lives, their homes, and their health.
Chief executives from councils in the lower North Island see no reason for intercepting emails – a practice Horowhenua District Council’s boss uses to “protect” his staff.
In an audit report, Horowhenua council chief executive David Clapperton was shown to be intercepting emails from members of the public, Horowhenua’s mayor and councillors.
He would block emails, redirect them, or let them continue to their intended destinations, which he said was “necessary to protect my employees so they can carry out their roles safely without undue interference, inappropriate criticism and racist slurs”.
In some cases, the council did not inform people that their emails were being intercepted, according to multiple sources.
* Complaint made to Privacy Commissioner over Horowhenua email interception
* Councillors stand by under-fire chief executive embroiled in email snooping revelations
* Concerns raised about email interception at Horowhenua District Council
* Editorial: Clapperton’s position is untenable
* Legal questions about ‘astonishing’ email interceptions
* Councillors stand by under-fire chief executive embroiled in email snooping revelations
Some emails that were sent by residents to councillors – not the council – were among those intercepted by Clapperton.
Chief executives from Manawatu and Tararua district councils, and Horizons Regional Council, said there was no reason to intercept emails at their councils.
As new science fuels the debate about cellphone safety, we take a closer look at a little known message inside your cellphone’s settings and manual telling you to keep the device 5 to 15 mm away from your body. We ask why this message exists, why it’s so hidden, and whether Health Canada is doing enough to protect us.

Here is the incredible testimony of a young woman who against all odds survived the medical system that appears not only to have harmed her with a vaccine (the vaccine was followed by ongoing debilitating illness) but also to have caused her to contract life threatening cancer. This smart woman, having already lost several family members from cancer, then declines the standard offering of radiation and chemotherapy which only works 3% of the time, and did her own research on cures. She came up with the Gerson therapy and treated herself all the way to wellness, at her own expense. A must listen and clear proof of the miserable success rate the standard mainstream medical and pharmaceutical industry can offer you. We ought all to learn from this woman and follow suit. Learn further on how the medical industry was heisted in the early part of the twentieth century by wealthy people, resulting in the treatment of symptoms. A veritable cash cow. Our key to health is a strong immune system, not what is currently offered in the form of vaccines, pills and artificial chemicals. See our Cancer pages for further info and learn of other success stories, and watch the video here for the full story told by this brave young woman who has beaten the death sentence.
Erin was a completely healthy college student who was asked to take Gardasil as part of a trial. Within 24 hours she was violently sick, vomiting, and went on to develop Cervical cancer within 18 months, the very thing the vaccine was supposed to protect her from.

“If you drink alcoholic beverages on occasion, wine could arguably be described as one of the “healthier” options. Red wine, in particular, is rich in antioxidants called polyphenols, including resveratrol.
Unfortunately, researchers have uncovered a problem in wine that has recently plagued other foods like apple juice and rice – high, potentially dangerous, levels of arsenic.
A class-action lawsuit filed in California states that wine drinkers have become “unwitting ‘guinea pigs’ of arsenic exposure,”2 after tests showed levels up to four and five times the maximum amount the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) allows for drinking water.3“
