Why is Canada preparing quarantine camps to detain people who DON’T have COVID? – listen to the Minister’s evasion of the pertinent questions

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.

Another ‘new normal’?

The vehicle images are from FB. If they’re yours please contact me. Captured in NZ. Okay yes they are military police and always been there but no we’ve seldom seen them on the roads like this but then, of course the military are now managing the CV operation and they’re operating checkpoints on the roads. It’s a little bit like WW2 don’t you think? They got good practice at this in East Timor in 2006.

Then there are the newly installed surveillance cameras. Who would’ve thought? 1984? George Orwell? I guess right now he’s saying, “See? told you”.

Still people, you can rest easy in NZ, Chris Hipkins just said in mainstream that the CV vax won’t be mandatory. Whew. And so far masks are only mandatory on public transport. Here’s hoping, fingers crossed, they won’t make anything at all mandatory in order to work, drive, shop, go to hospital, socialize and eat out? EWR

CDC’s latest update of “COVID-19 deaths” (quietly) reveals that only 6% of those 153,504 actually died of COVID-19. That’s 9,210 Americans

SOURCE: http://markcrispinmiller.com/2020/08/cdcs-latest-update-of-covid-19-deaths-quietly-reveals-that-only-6-of-those-153504-actually-died-of-covid-19-thats-9210-americans/

RELATED STATS FOR NZ: NZ & Covid: Of 22 stated deaths, 4 tested NEG, one NOT tested; all aged 60-90, 8 with underlying conditions

UPDATE:

How “our free press” is trying to “debunk” the CDC update

Typically, this line “debunks” the CDC update by carefully avoiding its key point: that the vast majority of “COVID-19 deaths” were deaths caused by COVID-19 and serious comorbiditiesamong the very old. 

This propaganda blurp from the Miami Herald (and no doubt recycled everywhere) tightly focuses on whether, in those fatal cases, COVID-19 was the decisive factor, “the straw that broke the camel’s back,” so that those dead would still be living if they didn’t have that, too. That is “how infectious diseases work,” the doctor quoted tells the Herald‘s scribe.

Whatever. Whether COVID-19 did or didn’t finish off those people is beside the point, which is that the lockdowns were, and are, unnecessary. As sane epidemiologists have been insisting since this nightmare started, the rational response to “the coronavirus” would have been to quarantine those very vulnerable people—as always has been done during epidemics and pandemics—and let the rest of us lead normal lives.

Instead, our “leaders,” guided by the likes of Dr. Fauci and Bill Gates, locked down America almost entirely—a twisted policy that has killed countless people, well and vulnerable alike, by crashing the economy, thereby murdering millions with no serious illnesses; and, as for those people most at risk, not only separating them from family and friends, which isolation did them in (the cause of that weird “COVID peak” in April, as Denis Rancourt has shown), but also killing tens of thousands more of them by ordering nursing homes to take in COVID-19 patients (a lethal practice carried out not just in the US, but in Canada, too).

In short, they gave us the worst of both worlds, ostensibly to “keep us safe” from a virus that posed little risk to all but just a few of us, as the CDC update has made clear to anyone who still has eyes to see with.

Hawaii rolling out mandatory COVID-19 testing checkpoints on major Oahu highway… with mandatory vaccines and quarantine camps soon to follow

(Natural News) The State of Hawaii is turning the H-3 freeway on Oahu into a mandatory COVID-19 road block checkpoint, blocking traffic in both directions and subjecting travelers to mandatory testing, reports Hawaii News Now. It means that Hawaii is being rapidly transformed into a medical police state which will soon morph into mandatory quarantine camps like we’ve already seen rolled out in Australia and New Zealand.

NZ’s Health Minister Chris Hipkins says Government will use any method necessary to track Covid-19 contacts

Health Minister Chris Hipkins says the Government was leaving no stone unturned to track and trace any contact with positive Covid-19 cases, scouring credit card payments, CCTV, and even had the option to use facial recognition technology.

He believes there is still a low likelihood of community transmission, despite a woman who travelled from Auckland to Sydney on July 20 tested positive for coronavirus, the third such case in the past week.

NZ & Covid: Of 22 stated deaths, 4 tested NEG, one NOT tested; all aged 60-90, 8 with underlying conditions

All the lockdown, the military involvement, the drama, the suicides, the fear of being pulled from your family & detained in a quarantine/detention center … are they really justified with 17 deaths? Note from the OI request that the 5 who weren’t positive, were assumed covid. Read the detail.

NZers fear Jacinda Adern wishes to take NZ children from their parents & put them into isolation

Post Script 20/8/20 – according to Chris Hipkins, no children will be taken from their homes by Oranga Tamariki if they test positive. That has been rumoured apparently. Nevertheless in the video in this post below, Ashley Bloomfield does say children can be separated from the family within the facility, still traumatizing if you have a very young child. Very. How is separation into another room with strangers in PPE gear, masks and so on, no visits allowed, going to help a little child recover? He would need his mother. It is not surprizing rumours are circulating. We know that the WHO rep Michael Ryan said quite plainly on television that members could be removed and put into quarantine. Listen to Adern (at 7 mins 38 secs) this link as she kind of says families will be managed carefully … she does not outright say, no they won’t be separated though. Just as Bloomfield wouldn’t.

__________________________________________________________________________

Since Adern switched the rules with no consultation note, it appears that the military in NZ are allowed to enter homes with no warrant and forcibly remove your children in the interests of health should it be deemed necessary.

This was first uttered back in the first global lockdown by Michael Ryan speaking from WHO (now ‘fact checked’ as untrue). I recall the horror then at such a suggestion. That was a lead in. A sure indication it was coming down the pipe. ‘In a humane fashion’ or similar he said.

How humane can ripping a small say one year old child from its mother be? By perfect strangers in military uniforms wearing masks? This is not humane!

This is out and out tyranny.

Any reasonable person would know that this is not sound medical / psychological / humane practice. Aside from it being just plain common sense, the life long fall-out from separation anxiety has been well documented. This is simply not acceptable. This attitude towards our children is absolutely cold and cruel. We have already had one little 7 year old boy try twice to end his life during the last lock down. This whole current scene is terrifying and traumatizing for children and parents and shows total disregard from our authorities on the value of individual lives and the effects their decisions are having. Today I heard also of parents considering a suicide pact with their family because of the fear of possible forced vaccination. (See video at 11mins 28 secs).

RELATED: California Doctors Say Suicide Deaths Exceed Coronavirus Fatalities

One person on social media (where the discussions occur, after all mainstream or should I say lamestream won’t allow it… it’s labeled ‘misinformation’) … she said she had asked at Whanau Ora if children would be separated from their parents. The response was no, that they would not separate families from their children.

And yet this is not reinforced at all by what Ashley Bloomfield is saying in his announcements, or by the experience of the following family who were in quarantine from Australia. They were told on arrival here that they would have to be separated (they declined) then it was suggested again that their two year old who was unwell, be isolated from them. They firmly declined again adding that legal action would be taken if they persisted. This one case has been now sorted but why did it happen like that? Parents less knowing might well have gone with the separation out of fear. The whole operation is being managed by the military. This implies force at the ready. Many (or is that most?) will be intimidated by this.

Below are two video clips, one from the UK (yes news is traveling on this) and one from Ashley Bloomfield, DG of NZ Health, spokesperson in this regard for Jacinda Adern. Note how Bloomfield (see video at 25mins 23 sec) is reluctant to say outright when asked, will you separate children from their parents … after a few ‘ums’ and ‘ahs’ and hand waving (just like Bill Gates does) he admits, ‘yes we will take your children if necessary’. If a paid staff member can care for a child in isolation, then equally that child’s parent can. End of story.

So what is the justification for complete separation?

Jacinda Adern needs to step up immediately and reassure the parents of NZ that their children will NOT be separated from them.

Note: Bloomfield has a Masters in Public Health with first class honours. He also has three children. I wonder would he be agreeable to any of those three at two years old being removed forcibly from he and his wife and children by strangers in camo with masks for who knows how long… for the benefit of their health? The same question goes to Jacinda and her partner.

Please consider emailing your MPs, MOH and Jacinda Adern, and remind them of the trauma such separation of children from their parents/caregivers would bring and such action should not be remotely considered as an option. EWR

Go to 25 mins 23 sec for the questions on quarantine & children with their parents. Question (Reporter):“If you’re a single parent with one kid does your kid come into quarantine with you?” Answer (Bloomfield): “Ah what we’re generally trying to do is encourage where … especially where it’s helpful … ah for, for families, is that … in case any, any close household contacts who might be at risk of still developing an infection or showing infection that they go into quarantine … they’re kept separate in the quarantine facility … ah… so it absolutely reduces the risk of passing it on to other household family members or other household members … so that’s why we see … so some of those ah will just be individual cases there ah … others will be the whole family in there and again the main … one of the key drivers of this is to protect the rest of the whanau members from infection … it’s very common inside the household if there’s not that isolation of the case or cases from other family members”.

Jacinda Adern speaking. Watch at 7 mins 38 secs re quarantine. For the record should the video disappear, she says in response to the question, Will families be forced apart in quarantine? … “We are very careful about the way that we manage that & people’s care arrangements … we work through all of that in a really ah … careful … responsible way… so that’s something we work through with families”.

Listen at 14 secs in Dr Ryan says: “now in most parts of the world due to lock down most of the transmission that’s actually happening in many countries now is happening in the household …. at family level. In some senses transmission has been taken off … off the streets and pushed back into family units. Now we need to go and look in families to find those people who may be sick and remove them and isolate them, in a … in a safe and dignified manner”.

The Big Coronavirus Testing Con Job

From Lew Rockwell

CDC changes the way it tabulates cases

The news media doesn’t inform the public the Centers for Disease Control has changed the way it determines COVID-19 severity and now includes symptomatic and asymptomatic cases in its tabulations.  It is a categorical increase, not an increase in the spread or virility of the virus.

The Center for Evidence-Based Medicine cites a broad range (5% to 80%) of people who test positive for COVID-19 but are without symptoms.  This has led public health authorities to issue misdirected advisories to stay indoors as asymptomatic individuals may be spreading the virus.  Everybody is then an imagined threat to your life.  But it takes 40,500 encounters with infected people to get infected and over 6 million encounters to produce 1 death.  Mask-wearing Americans are just mindlessly following devious instructions they hear on TV.

What’s happening in NZ? An MD calls out the curious state of military managed quarantine & other anomalies in the Gates-friendly nation

Quarantined returning NZers are met by the military and kept for 14 days in small quarters & ‘get this’ says Dr Buttar, they are only allowed out doors in the sunshine for HALF AN HOUR EVERY ALTERNATE DAY. Food is not nutritious, that and no sunlight is not conducive to good health at all. That was from one of his patients returning to NZ. If you test positive you are quarantined for a month. Remember Billy Te Kahika speaking (link to video) on this topic having been appealed to for help by a quarantined family who tested negative but were still denied exemption to attend the tāngi (funeral) of the children’s father. The NZ police arrested these young people including the grieving 12 year old boy who was not resisting, and drove them around for an hour it’s alleged before returning them to their mother. We are looking increasingly like a communist dictatorship. Our Jacinda Adern (PM) is good friends of Bill & Melinda Gates apparently. She has lectured in the past it appears at Microsoft. EWR

New Zealanders are resisting the advance towards medical martial law & overtures of mandatory medical procedures

An update from the NZPP. Some interesting detail in this video … information re Belarus & the IMF, the president declined IMF’s billion dollar offer in return for locking down their country … also re NZ military management of CV and a further option for another NZPP merger under discussion (announcements on that soon). The advance we are seeing in media towards forced door to door testing for the CV using the military to assist with that is disturbing indeed & Kiwis are not succumbing. Also of interest, watch the latest Corbett Report below looking at the consideration of the issues around mandatory vaccination world wide. At 58 minutes in, mention is made of the NZPP’s proposed action (or inaction) on this topic. And in case you’re thinking NZ wouldn’t do that, remember Brownlee’s recent statement that he would have all 5 million Kiwis force vaccinated? I did read that twice on the internet however it has disappeared entirely now, I cannot find it anywhere. Pre the last election Labour also said they wouldn’t rule mandatory vaccination out & media have highlighted it since. Thin end of the wedge scenarios. Not rocket science to figure what’s in store from those intimations. EWR

What contact tracing looks like in the US – one family’s disturbing story

From technocracy.news

When an unskilled, $17/hour “contact tracer” shows up on your doorstep, how will you respond? Will he or she be able to wreck your life in a few short minutes? Follow the saga of Henry Kron and his family.

Be sure to see all the headlines and the video at the end of the story! There’s more. Much more. That’s why it’s “to be continued…” ⁃ TN Editor

Henry Kron and his wife Helen had just enjoyed a family dinner time with their two pre-teen daughters, Leanne and Elise. Henry headed to the coat closet to get the girls’ favorite board game off the top shelf.

He had promised that this would be “game night” and they were all looking forward to it.

Actually, life was just starting to look good again after the extended lockdown during the global pandemic. That one had cost Henry his last job and finding a new job was next to impossible with 40 million other Americans out of work at the same time.

In fact, the lack of income for several months left them unable to make their house payment for two months in row. They came within an inch of being foreclosed. Their retirement fund wasn’t large, but it took the whole thing just to get caught up.

With a lot of hard work and a bit of luck, Henry had finally landed a good job. Even though he would be on probation for the first 90 days, he was determined to do whatever it would take to keep the job.

Just as they decided who would get to roll the dice to start the game, the doorbell rang.

Henry went to the door thinking “Who would call on us at this time of the evening?” He certainly was not expecting anyone.

As he opened the door, there stood a soldier in a crisp, clean fatigue uniform.

“Mr. Kron?” he asked.

“Yes,” replied Henry, “is something going on in the neighborhood?”

“No, sir,” he replied, “I am here to give you and your family a coronavirus test because we received a report that you have unknowingly been exposed to someone who actually had the virus.”

Medical martial law – WHO is calling the shots

63.7K subscribers
This report is a follow-up to one where I cover how Michael Ryan of the WHO stated in a press briefing how the WHO (which is of course in the pocket of Bill Gates) now believes it is time to start removing people from their homes. I know many people, especially those of you who are in the US, think that could never happen here … well, those are probably the same people who thought just a couple months ago that it would be impossible to lockdown the entire country because people would never put up with it and because we have rights… right? This is being said even as we are ON lockdown. For those of you who can’t wait for the government to lift the lockdowns, as many states are preparing to do, remember that we were told things will not go back to normal until there is a vaccine and the entire planet has largely received it… we have also been told about how we must embrace the new normal. Part of that new normal is contact tracing. Hmm, sounds normal enough – or at least harmless – kind of like how the Patriot Act sounds harmless or Operation Iraqi Freedom may have sounded like a good thing to many, despite the fact that it was a war of aggression based on lies which resulted in the death of over a million people… but, hey, it has the word freedom in it. So what exactly is contact tracing? Well, according to California Governor Newsom… Contact tracing, combined with expanded testing, is a pillar of the state’s modified stay-at-home order and The goal is to track and trace every person in the state who may have been exposed, then quickly isolate and test them. So, in other words, the state cannot open up without contact tracing; and only then it would be a modified stay-at-home order, and not actually removing the lockdown in its entirety. And how are they going to accomplish this?

The CDC (US Centers for Disease Control) admits the coronavirus test is flawed

by Jon Rappoport

March 24, 2020

—The CDC (US Centers for Disease Control) admits the coronavirus test is flawed. That’s the overview and the takeaway—

As my readers know, I’ve described why the widespread diagnostic test for the coronavirus is insufficient, misleading, useless, and deceptive.

That test, used all over the world where it is available, is called the PCR.

It DIAGNOSES patients. “Yes, you have the virus.” “No you don’t.”

A very alert reader sent me a link to a US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) document about the test. The CDC establishes the guidelines for how the test should be done, and what the results mean.

Here is a CDC paragraph about results. I suggest you read it several times.

“Positive [test] results are indicative of active infection with 2019-nCoV but do not rule out bacterial infection or co-infection with other viruses. The agent detected may not be the definite cause of disease. Laboratories within the United States and its territories are required to report all positive results to the appropriate public health authorities.”

I’m going to blow past the blatant contradiction in that CDC paragraph and cut to the chase.

The key line in that paragraph is: “The agent detected [the coronavirus] may not be the definite cause of disease.”

BANG.

CDC: Yeah, you see, folks, ahem, the test could say the coronavirus is there in somebody’s body, but the virus may not be causing disease…

On one level, the CDC is admitting the test could turn up false positives: the test could SAY a patient has the coronavirus, but he really doesn’t.

This isn’t a footnote stuck at the bottom of a report. It’s right there near the top of the section about the meaning of the test.

On a deeper level, the CDC is saying straight out, IF THE TEST SHOWS A CORONAVIRUS IS PRESENT, THAT DOESN’T MEAN IT’S CAUSING DISEASE.

Well, yes, I’ve pointed out that the test has an inherent problem. At best, it might show that a virus is present in the patient’s body. But the test is incapable of determining HOW MUCH virus is ACTIVELY REPLICATING in the patient’s body.

According to NZ’s National Poisons Centre there is no readily available test for 1080 poison in the human body

By Carol Sawyer

TODAY I HAD A CONVERSATION WITH THE ‘NATIONAL POISONS CENTRE ….

The signs at 1080 poison aerial drops tell you to contact the National Poisons Centre if you suspect poisoning, and they give you an 0800 number to ring. Just so you are clear about this… however, contacting the National Poisons Centre will get you absolutely nowhere!!

Joel Lund of Wanaka asked a GP the other day what he would do if someone presented with poisoning symptoms after an aerial 1080 poison drop. The doctor replied he would contact the National Poisons Centre. This sounds like a sensible response, one would have thought. Think again!!!

I had a number of questions for the National Poisons Centre about 1080 poisoning, given that so many of us live around 1080 drop zones and are potentially exposed to the substance many times over

I asked the person who answered the phone at the National Poisons Centre if she was the correct person to be talking to. She said she was.

I explained that we are about to experience another 1080 poison drop in our area (Wanaka) and asked if there were testing kits available here.

She replied “I don’t know, and I don’t know if I could find the answer”.

I asked how many methods there are for testing for 1080 poisoning.

She replied “I’m not too sure”.

I asked “How quickly can they test for 1080 and get a result?”

She replied, “They wouldn’t test the person. They would probably get some history. They probably wouldn’t do a blood test. I don’t know if there is a blood test.” She said they can’t test for every poison.

I asked how accurate the testing was. At this point she seemed to realize she was out of her depth and said she would talk to the resident toxicologist.

She came back on the line and said that there is a test available but it is not widely available. It is a urine test and is only any use within the first 24 hours after poisoning. She said it is “affiliated to a woman at Lincoln University” but wouldn’t/couldn’t tell me who that is. She said it is mostly used for testing workers’ urine levels when they have been working with 1080 poison.

She said that the toxicologist said “1080 doesn’t stay in your body very long”. We then had a discussion about whether it can be found in skin and bone and hair, as in animals including mammals, but she seemed stuck on the fact they only tested humans and seemed rather unreceptive to the idea humans are also mammals.

***********

(Ross & McCoskery (2012) found residues of 1080 in the bones of poisoned deer carcasses 213 days after death…the study ended then so no one knows how long 1080 stays in bone.

Ross, J, McCoskery, H 2012. Deer carcass breakdown monitoring. Report prepared for the Animal Health Board. Wellington, New Zealand. 7 pp.)

***********

She said if you get poisoned they will just treat the symptoms. They won’t be bothered with what kind of poison it is. She was a bit incoherent and I had to keep asking her to slow down.

Is that a worry or what?!!!

I asked for the name of the ‘resident toxicologist’.
“Michael” she said.
“Michael who? ” I said
“We’re not allowed to give out surnames”, she said.

I asked if I could speak to him please.

She said “No you can’t”

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

So there we have it. If you get poisoned by 1080 do not expect the authorities to confirm it is 1080. Just hope you survive. If the Kochummen family who ate wild pork are anything to go by you will probably be treated for botulism.

*******************************************
Sodium monofluoroacetate (1080) is a poison which is dropped indiscriminately from the air in New Zealand at the rate of approximately 4 tonnes of pure poison annually. (The baits contain 0.15% pure poison). It kills human beings at the rate of 0.5 to 2 mgs per kg bodyweight (LD50 – Negherbon).

THIS YEAR ALONE WE ARE THROWING ENOUGH 1080 POISON ON NZ TO KILL 85 MILLION PEOPLE – AND WE DON’T EVEN TEST OUR FOOD FOR 1080 RESIDUES!

NOR DO WE HAVE A READILY AVAILABLE TEST FOR 1080 POISON IN THE HUMAN BODY!!!

America’s new animal cruelty law that ignores 99% of animal cruelty is not unlike NZ’s that sanctions a long cruel death by 1080

This post on changed laws in the US reminds me of NZ’s situation with 1080 that allows the long slow cruel death a vet has described as 2+ days of slow electrocution. The NZ authorities tweaked the Animal Welfare act to exempt the spreaders of aerially dropped 1080 poison from prosecution for cruelty. Same thing really isn’t it? Cruel but it’s deemed ‘okay’ because they are killing off everything non native for the biodiversity program we were signed up to under Agenda 21 now Agenda 2030. A truly ‘sustainable’ (not) practice. Unless of course it’s your pet dog, cat or other animal. EWR

From veganista.co  via exposingthebiggame.wordpress.com

“According to The Washington Post, the PACT Act “outlines exemptions for humane euthanasia; slaughter for food; recreational activities such as hunting, trapping and fishing; medical and scientific research; ‘normal veterinary, agricultural husbandry, or other animal management practice’; and actions that are necessary ‘to protect the life or property of a person.’”

Of course animal cruelty to dogs and cats by private citizens should be dealt with severely. But what about the billions of animals tortured each year on America’s factory farms? Or how about the tens of thousands of animals, including dogs and cats, who are tested on and mistreated in laboratories?

Can we actually say we’re cracking down on animal cruelty when we still allow SeaWorld to keep cetaceans captive and force them to perform? Or permit insanely cruel practices like fur trapping and bow hunting?”

The North Beach weka that died of “unknown causes” had “both lungs exuding FROTHY PINK FLUID” consistent with 1080 poisoning

“So, Massey, couldn’t work out that “FROTHY PINK FLUID” is consistent with 1080 poisoning?”

From Clyde Graf:

So, as expected, the Department of Conservation has come out with porkies, again, trying to divert attention from its recent aerial operation and the hundreds of poisoned rats, and other animals that washed up on West Coast beaches. Drowning they say. Ha! Is DOC not aware that rats are great swimmers? They even have the tag name Water Rats. They don’t drown by accident or by Pied Piper fantasy stories, made up by desperate DOC staff.

The pathology report for the weka that was found dead, released this week from Massey (known for its creative alternatives to poisoning incidents – like the sea slugs that poisoned many dogs at Auckland’s Takapuna Beach after the aerial poisoning operation across Rangitoto Island, near Auckland) shows that the endemic bird died with “BOTH LUNGS EXUDING FROTHY PINK FLUID”!!!!

The weka’s Pathology report from Massey is included, below.

The finding is typical of animals that die of 1080 poisoning. But no, in this case, and as expected, the findings were “unknown cause of death”.

So, Massey, couldn’t work out that “FROTHY PINK FLUID” is consistent with 1080 poisoning???

For Heavens sake, when will these govt organisations actually show some independence? Oh, that’s right, they can’t! There is NO independence when it comes to 1080 poisoning incidences in New Zealand.

RELATED: Over 5 years NZ$3 million has been approved by DoC alone to the eight main NZ universities – so how independent is their research?

This year alone we are throwing enough 1080 poison on NZ to kill 85 million people – and we don’t even test our food for 1080 residues!

By Carol Sawyer

Recent information from Animal Control Products Ltd is that DoC buy between 30% and 50% of their 1080 product every year, that OSPRI and regional councils account for another 40%, and (presumably) ZIP and Predator Free NZ account for the rest…. between 10% and 30%.

As DoC have produced maps showing they intend to be covering 1.124 million ha with aerial 1080 this year, at a rate of 1.5 to 2 kgs per ha, and even if they account for a 50% buy-up of the poison, we can safely assume a total of about 4,000 tonnes of 1080 poison baits will be spread on our land this year.

That is 6,000kgs of pure 1080 poison (at the standard 0.15% pure poison per bait rate).. So at an LD50 of 0.5mg per kg bodyweight that means 35mg can kill a 70kg human being. That works out to be theoretically enough 1080 dropped on NZ this year to poison 171,428,571 x 70kg people, with half of them, 85,714,285, having a lethal dose!

LD50 : [ Based on fatal or near-fatal cases of human poisonings, the dangerous dose for humans is 0.5-2.0 mg/kg BW (Negherbon 1959)]

(LD50 stands for Lethal Dose 50 – killing with poison is not an exact science so an LD50 is used, which means that one can assume 50% of the people poisoned will die. It doesn’t mean the other 50% get off scot-free!)

If you are new to NZ’s 1080 poisoning program here is a good article to start with …

WHY ARE PEOPLE SO CONCERNED ABOUT 1080?

A must watch also is Poisoning Paradise, the doco made by the GrafBoys (banned from screening on NZ TV, yet a 4x international award winner). Their website is tv-wild.com. Their doco is a very comprehensive overview with the independent science to illustrate the question marks that remain over the use of this poison. Check out also 1080science.co.nz for the independent science.

And the 1080 pages at the main menu, particularly the sub tab, ‘suspected 1080 poisoning cases’. Finally, remember what the retired MD Charlie Baycroft said recently …‘if you die from 1080 poisoning, nobody will know  because the Ministry of Health is bullying NZ Doctors into not testing for 1080′. 

EWR

 

‘Family face long wait over backpacker’s lost heart’ (2006) & mainstream failed to mention suspected 1080 poisoning

And ‘long’ it has been. What the Herald failed to mention is that her Doctor suspected 1080 poisoning which is why he asked for her heart to be tested. Please read our earlier article on this … the Doctor was in effect stone walled which confirms Dr Baycroft’s information (see below).

Have you ever heard of a lab losing a human heart before?

This is horrible beyond imagination for this family. And it sounds extremely suspicious doesn’t it? This family was paid absolutely no respect in this. Not by the authorities anyway. Remember what retired Doctor Charles Baycroft has told us recently… ‘if you die from 1080 poisoning nobody will know’ because Doctors he said are not allowed to look for it, and they are bullied into not testing. Word has it that the leaves in the area where Whitney walked that day were smeared with 1080 gel, a highly concentrated application. 

The NZ authorities do not practice the precautionary principle with the spreading of 1080 poison people. In fact they are now legally allowed to drop it into your waterways without the previously required consents, even though the manufacturer’s warning says take care not to drop it into the waterways. Whilst they continue to claim it is harmless, there is much independent research that says otherwise. (See 1080science for further independent info). In light of that, in my opinion it is safer to follow the precautionary principle, that is, proceed as if there were a possible risk to your health rather than assume there is none. EWR

Milford Sound 1080 drop: what you need to consider regarding the drinking water – an update

The NZ authorities do not practice the precautionary principle with the spreading of 1080 poison. In fact they are now legally allowed to drop it into your waterways without the previously required consents, even though the manufacturer’s warning says take care not to drop it into the waterways. Whilst they continue to claim it is harmless, there is much independent research that says otherwise. (See 1080science for further independent info). In light of that, in my opinion it is safer to follow the precautionary principle, that is, proceed as if there were a possible risk to your health rather than assume there is none. Since 1080 is a known teratogen I believe it is particularly important for pregnant mothers or even those who think they may be or who could be pregnant, to distance themselves from an area where 1080 is being distributed, particularly aerially because of the drift of the dust over long distances.  I believe these are the concerns being raised here, and particularly also with regard to warning tourists of the risks of drinking the water, who may not be able to read the signs (if there indeed are any). Finally, of particular concern is the topography of Milford Sound. When it rains as per the above image, “all of the steep landscape can be considered a streambed”.  EWR.

Aug 2nd 2019

To: the Community of Milford Sound.

Re: Response to email on 31st July 2019 from John McCutcheon (MSI) to the community and stakeholders, regarding the impending 1080 drop into the public water supply water catchment area of Milford Sound

The key issue:

DOC has issued its intentions to drop a VTA (1080) between Aug 1st and Dec 2019 in the Cleddau/Milford Sound area, including the Bowen River valley, which is the water catchment for the public water supply of Milford Sound.

  • How might this affect the public water supply and its consumers in the Milford Sound area?
  • It won’t, if the drop is aborted in the Bowen River valley water catchment area.

However, if the drop in the catchment area goes ahead, I believe that – on reading the information and links below, both DOC & Milford Sound Infrastructure (MSI –the local public water supply company) should act in good faith, and with the prudent exercise of ethical responsibility, to make sure that an alternate water supply is arranged during and after the 1080 drop. Also, adequate signage should be supplied about the drop –which seems to be the responsibility of Workplace NZ.

Why?

The alternative supply should be offered until testing is carried out and levels of 1080 found to be below the government standard for tests (set at 2 parts per billion, though under 3.5 parts per billion is deemed safe by the EPA.) Note: No human trials have been carried out to know if this level is indeed correct)

Failing the delivery of an alternate water supply, responsibility lies with us – the end operators and consumers, along with WorkSafe NZ – to place signs at all water outlets where human consumption could reasonably be expected to take place. For example, all tourist vessels, port and airport facilities, and all lodgings should have 1080 danger signs erected where water (including tea or coffee) is to be offered during and after aerial operations in the Bowen River catchment area, until post-drop test results are available.

I have now received an email (dated 1 Aug 2019) from Renee Cubitt (Health Protection Officer Public Health South, Southern DHB) where she states:

“… Mitigation measures are discussed between the water supplier and the applicant and monitoring includes testing the water before consumption. Water samples tested for 1080 toxin residue in New Zealand are tested to a very low level of detection. Alternative supplies are arranged before results are cleared (highlight added). In our view the risk to those consuming drinking water is extremely low – and most likely nil.”

But as recognised in this statement, some risk – however small – exists, so an alternative water supply should be offered.

What regulates these requests to drop 1080 and relevant mitigation of risk?

The Ministry of Health is responsible for ensuring that the provisions of the HSNO Act are complied with where it is necessary to protect public health. The Public Health Unit (PHU) is empowered by the Ministry of Health to approve permission and attach conditions to interested parties applying a VTA (Vertebrate Toxic Agent) in a public place. This applies especially to drops into (or near) a public water supply. Public Health South (PHS) processes and approves permissions for VTA use in the Fiordland area, in so doing, sets minimum standards for the intended dispersal area in the Milford Sound public water supply catchment area.

Permission is required because VTAs (of which 1080 is one) are toxic to humans through acute poisoning and chronic exposure. 1080 is considered a hazardous substance, for good reason. (See link to 1080 effects at p7.)

The PHU have issued a Model Permission Statement (see p32 onwards) with examples – one of which focuses on a VTA to be dropped into a public water supply. (Case study 2 at p63.)

Some things that stand out for me with the model PHU permissions:

  • Full disclosure to users is expected, with signs and warnings – which would logically be placed at the point of possible consumption. (See conditions 19 & 20 p47 of VTA permission guide.)
  • An alternate water supply should be offered, if requested, until testing has been completed. (See Case example – Condition 25 p68 note ii and conditions 25 – 32 of VTA permission guide.)

I see the above two points as meeting a legal and moral duty to protect tourists (and locals) from potentially drinking contaminated water.

It should be noted that, according to the opening segment of condition 30 (p57) of the VTA permission guide:

Mitigation shall be mutually agreed in writing between the applicant and water supply managers and involve either or both of the following [emphasis added]:

  • No 1080 shall be applied within 200 m of the water supply intakes. For flowing surface watercourses, the 200 m exclusion shall be extended to 400 m upstream of the point of intake. (p57)
  • If an interim water supply is available, the affected water supply shall be temporarily disconnected until such time as water testing finds no VTA contamination above 50 percent of the Ministry’s PMAV*, in accordance with the requirements of the Drinking-water Standards of New Zealand. (p57)

The first point above is modified (example given in condition (30 pg57) by:

In steep areas, the exclusion area may need to be increased to avoid bait falling in to the waterway [emphasis added].

Local conditions affecting the toxicity of any drop in this area

Let’s be honest, the whole Milford Sound area has extremely steep gradients.

Bowen River valley and public water supply catchment area (see red circled area)

map cleddau milford etc
Figure 1: (Map clipped 4 July 2019 from the online DOC map.)

Fiordland is a unique area in terms of its topography and rainfall. The Bowen River catchment valley is rather like a giant granite bath, with very little top soil, and average rainfall of 7000mm per annum.

During rainfall, all of the steep landscape can be considered a streambed.

Milford_Sound_vertical_water_ways[1]
Figure 2: Milford steep gradient waterways during heavy rain in Milford Sound (Photo: Sacha Stevenson)
Contrasting the 2D nature of the 2017 GPS flight path map for the 1080 drop in this area with the reality of the length of the Bowen River and its many, many feeder streams (via a camping map) also gives perspective to the special nature of this landscape and its potential for major 1080 runoff into the waters feeding our drinking water supply.

Untitled.png

Figure 3: Flight path for 2017 drop (from EPA Report) Figure 4: Topography (from Camping Map)

This unique topography, together with winter temperatures, ice and snow melt, will likely increase the risk of 1080 arriving at the intake area intact, and at the same time and breaking down much more slowly. According to TBFree: “How 1080 Breaks Down in Soil and Water”:

Biodegradation of 1080 is faster in warmer conditions (20degC), but still occurs at 5degC. At cooler temperatures rates of degradation are slower…..”

Imagine the perfect storm: A huge rain soon after the drop and all the aerially dispersed 1080 pellets wash straight into the streams and make their way to the public water supply intake around the same time. This poison then, being a deadly toxin at single digit parts per billion, arrives to be consumed by a pregnant woman, above the levels that the mother and child can metabolize safely.

Is it possible that 1080 might get to the intake before it breaks down? Considering the nature of the topography here, the winter temperatures and the international exposure of our iconic location, ALL options of mitigating risks should be enacted.

The 2017 DOC report (at p6) reported a positive 1080 test at 1ppb for the Bowen River (ie a fairly small risk). However, as discussed above, different conditions (eg heavy rain around the time of the drop) may adversely affect that risk level.

Timing of water samples

Landcare Research, in its “Guideline for Sampling and Testing of Water” states (at 3.1) that:

Urgent samples for 24-hour turnaround testing may be sent unfrozen to the testing laboratory, but they must be chilled to 4°C and placed on ice as soon as possible after collection.

Looking closer at Landcare’s testing regime (at 4.0): “Results will be available no later than 9.30 a.m.

on the following day.” This means, at a minimum, no water should be drunk in Milford for 24hrs.

The precautionary principle

The HSNO Act (at s7) is predicated on a precautionary approach, especially where there is uncertainty about the effects of a course of action, which there must be in this case.

This precautionary aspect is reflected in the PHU Guidelines for VTAs:

  • The specific characteristics and risk profile of each VTA operation is different, depending on the VTA being used, the terrain and factors such as public use patterns and/or proximity to dwellings and water supplies. The Model Permit Conditions may need to be modified in order to adequately manage the level of the risk to public health.[From page iii, emphasis added]
  • The Model Permit Conditions are intended as a starting point. They should not be applied as a generalised standard ‘set’ of conditions. They provide a framework that officers can adjust in order to meet local needs. However, officers need to ensure that they fully consider the various risks and characteristics of each specific proposed VTA operation in order to determine the appropriate Model Permit Conditions to be used and how such conditions might need to be modified to adequately manage the public health risks posed by that particular operation.” [From page 2, emphasis added]

Guidelines are not the law. They are a mechanism for giving effect to the law – and to its precautionary approach.

Milford Sound – a major tourist attraction

Milford Sound is one of NZ’s iconic tourist locations. We have somewhere between 500 to 5,000 guests per day visiting the Fiord, hosted by various companies across the different seasons. The large majority of tourists are foreign nationals, many of whom don’t speak or read English very well.

Until at least the 24th July 2019, Milford Sound Infrastructure acknowledged they hadn’t been notified of the impending drop. Since the community was notified by MSI on the 31st July, we can assume we now have at least 2 months until the scheduled drop begins, as per the guidelines:

The notice must be given sufficiently prior to, but within two months of, the proposed application of the VTA (PHU VTA Permission – condition 27 Notification)

I understand that some of the companies here are planning to make bottled water available for their staff, but none of them (as far as I know) are planning to offer bottled water to the tourists, or even to put notices up in the terminal or on the vessels to warn them of the 1080 drop – so they can at least make an informed choice as to whether they will consume the potentially contaminated water or not.

I believe in ‘free will’ and I can understand some people believe the Government/DOC scientists when they say the water will be safe to drink.

However, around 3% of 1080 tests in water have come back positive for 1080 over the years, with at least 4 positive tests in drinking water, albeit in low concentrations. (See TBFree, p3.)

Knowing that 1080 is teratogenic (may cause birth defects) and with my partner being pregnant, I wouldn’t wish her to have any exposure whatsoever to 1080. I assume no foreign national in her position would wish to be exposed to that risk either. (See MOH Guidelines p7 re known 1080 effects.)

I am disappointed that neither DOC, MSI Milford Sound Infrastructure, or MST Milford Sound Tourism NZ (the port operational company that operate the terminal and dock facilities) are planning to at least inform the tourists that the water they may drink in the terminal and on board the vessels may potentially have a birth defect causing agent in it.

It is probably true that signs will likely be erected along the road into Milford, as we have seen done in various locations around NZ. But it is wrong to conclude that because those signs are at rest areas etc, that foreigners will equate that with the drinking water supply inthe terminal and on the vesselsetc, as being also potentially contaminated. One must remember that many visitors can’t read English for a start, plus many come from areas where it is obvious that one doesn’t drink from any tap water.

Is it obvious here?

I would expect the duty of care and a minimum standard would mean that we’d firstly err on the side of caution. I would also assume that foreign governments would want us to set the minimum standard bar rather high when it comes to looking after the health and welfare of their citizens. As we would hope they do for our citizens when they’re abroad.

We know that the US and China for example, among others, take the safety of their citizens travelling overseas very seriously.

Do we need reminding that there is no antidote to 1080 poisoning?

It really seems easy to avoid the vast majority of the risks in this case. Just don’t drop 1080 in the water catchment area: meaning no 1080 to be aerially dropped in the Bowen River valley area of Milford Sound.

If DOC is so determined to go-ahead with the poison drop in the catchment area, then full disclosure to tourists should be made and an alternate drinking water supply offered (as per the model PHU statement example of 1080 in a public water supply).

It’s embarrassing that we call our country ‘Open and Inclusive’ ‘Clean Green’ etc and yet treat foreigners with this sort of disrespect.

I would like to add, I have no issue with the normal supply and delivery of water in Milford Sound. As long as I’ve worked here, MSI and MST have both operated with professionalism and worked to fix any issues with the greatest of haste.

A final point

If the aerial drop in the Bowen River catchment area is aborted, there would be no risk to the public water supply.

If you are concerned, please speak up and send your concerns to DOC and MSI.

Kind regards,

Imminent 1080 drop at Milford Sound: a local is concerned at the lack of communication with tourists on the health risks regarding drinking water

Impending Milford Sound 1080 drop (Southland Cleddau area)

By Sacha Stevenson

1080 – It’s nothing new to most Kiwis. Opinions are divided.

The last aerial drop of 1080 here was only two years ago. Before the last drop (although I wasn’t working in Milford at the time) there was some community consultation, including a Q & A session with the Department of Conservation (DoC) – the lead agency involved with the drop in this region. I understand some local workers and one Iwi objected, but the drop went ahead anyway, including into the public water supply catchment area.

The next drop in the Southland Cleddau/Milford Sound area is scheduled for between Aug 1st and Dec 2019 and, just like the Sept 2017 drop, this again includes dropping 1080 into the water supply.

(See map below clipped 4 July 2019 from the online DOC map.)

In my opinion, the community here has not had an honest open forum to voice their say on the next scheduled drop (and every opinion is valid) but much worse, even if we get to have our say, chances are high that the tourists will be left uninformed.

There are many aspects to this topic, many already discussed. One of the main aspects here being in regards to the Public Health Unit (PHU) VTA Permission and conditions statement and its lack of implementation here in Milford Sound, and the effect it may have on locals and tourists. I’m not a lawyer, but I see this as a legal and moral failing in our duty to protect tourists (and locals).

The Ministry of Health (the Ministry) is responsible for ensuring that the provisions of the Hazardous Substances & New Organisms (HSNO) Act are complied with where it is necessary to protect public health. The Public Health Unit (PHU) is legislated by the Ministry of Health, to approve permission and attach conditions to interested parties applying a VTA (Vertebrate Toxic Agent) in a public place. This applies especially to drops into (or near) a public water supply. Public Health South (PHS) processes and approves permissions for the Fiordland area.

Permission is required because VTAs (of which 1080 is one) are toxic to humans through acute poisoning and chronic exposure. 1080 is considered a hazardous substance, for good reason. (See link to 1080 effects at p7.)

The PHU have issued a mode HYPERLINK “https://www.health.govt.nz/system/files/documents/publications/guidelines-issuing-permission-for-using-vertebrate-toxic-agents-march13.pdf”l statement form (see p32 onwards) with examples – which includes one for where a VTA is to be dropped into a public water supply.

Some things stand out for me with the model PHU permissions:

1)  Full disclosure to users is expected, with signs and warnings (which would logically be placed at the point of possible consumption)(see conditions 19 & 20 pg47 of VTA permission guide.)

2)  An alternate water supply should be offered, if requested, until testing has been completed. (Case example – Condition 25 p67 note ii and conditions 25 – 32 of VTA permission guide.)

Milford Sound is one of NZ’s iconic tourist locations. We have between 500 to 5000 guests per day visiting the Fiord, hosted by various companies across the different seasons. The large majority of tourists are foreign nationals, many of whom don’t speak or read English very well.

However, I’ve had contact with the public water supply company in the last week, confirming that they’ve had no warning about the upcoming use of 1080. (As at 24th July)

Not a good start.

Despite the lack of communication from DoC (the lead agency for this particular drop) and from the aerial application contractor, many of the workers here in Milford know the drop is now imminent.

I understand that some of the companies here are planning to make bottled water available for their staff, but none of them (as far as I know) are planning to offer bottled water to the tourists, or even to put notices up in the terminal or on the vessels to warn them of the 1080 drop – so they can choose for themselves whether they would like to drink the tap water or not.

I believe in ‘free will’ and I can understand some people believe the Government/DoC scientists when they say the water will be safe to drink. But there have been around 3% of positive tests for 1080 in water over the years, with at least 4 positive tests in drinking water, albeit in low concentrations. (See TBFree HYPERLINK “https://ospri.co.nz/assets/Uploads/Documents/How-1080-Breaks-Down-in-Soil-Water.pdf” info, p3.)

Knowing that 1080 is teratogenic (may cause birth defects) and with my partner being pregnant, I wouldn’t wish her to have any exposure whatsoever to 1080. I assume no foreign national in her position would wish to be exposed to that risk either. (See MOH Guidelines p7 re known 1080 effects.)

I am shocked that it appears that no one in Milford, including DoC, Milford Sound Tourism NZ (MST – the port operational company),  Milford Sound Infrastructure ((MSI – the public water supply company), or the tourist companies providing vessels and the drinking water aboard them, is planning to at least inform the tourists that the water they may drink in the terminal and on board the vessels may potentially have a birth defect causing agent in it.

It is probably true that signs will likely be erected along the road into Milford, as we have seen done in various locations around NZ. But it is wrong to conclude that because those signs are at the rest areas, that foreigners will equate that with the drinking water in the terminal and on the boats being also potentially contaminated. One must remember, that many visitors can’t read English for a start, plus many come from areas where it is obvious that one doesn’t drink from any tap. Is it obvious here?

I would expect the duty of care and a minimum standard would mean that we’d firstly err on the side of caution. I would also assume that foreign governments would want us to set the minimum standard bar rather high when it comes to looking after the health and welfare of their citizens. As we would hope they do for our citizens when they’re abroad.

We know that the US and China for example, among others, take the safety of their citizens travelling overseas very seriously.

To add to the issues, Fiordland is a unique area in terms of its topography and rainfall. The Bowen River catchment valley is rather like a giant granite bath, with very little top soil, and average rainfall of 7000mm per annum. Together with winter temperatures, ice and snow melt, this will likely increase the risk of 1080 arriving at the intake at the same time and breaking down much more slowly. Further, according to TBFree HYPERLINK “https://ospri.co.nz/assets/Uploads/Documents/How-1080-Breaks-Down-in-Soil-Water.pdf” NZ:

Biodegradation of 1080 is faster in warmer conditions (20degC), but still occurs at 5degC. At cooler temperatures rates of degradation are slower…..”

Landcare Research not HYPERLINK “https://www.landcareresearch.co.nz/__data/assets/pdf_file/0019/209134/Protocol-for-1080-testing-in-water-4th-Edn.pdf”s (at 3.1) that:

Urgent samples for 24-hour turnaround testing may be sent unfrozen to the testing laboratory, but they must be chilled to 4°C and placed on ice as soon as possible after collection.

Looking closer at Landcare’s testing regime (at 4.0): “Results will be available no later than 9.30 a.m. on the following day.” This means, at a minimum, no water should be drunk in Milford for 24hrs.

Do we need reminding that there is no antidote to 1080 poisoning?

It really seems easy to avoid the vast majority of the risks in this case. Just don’t drop 1080 in the water catchment area, meaning no 1080 to be aerially dropped in the Bowen River valley area of Milford Sound.

If DOC is so determined to go-ahead with the poison drop in the catchment area, then full disclosure to tourists should be made and an alternate drinking water supply offered (as per the model PHU statement example of 1080 in a public water supply).

It’s embarrassing that we call our country ‘Open and Inclusive’, ‘Clean Green’ etc and yet treat foreigners with this sort of disrespect.

For more info regarding our area, check out online the 2017 Southland  HYPERLINK “https://www.epa.govt.nz/assets/Uploads/Documents/Hazardous-Substances/1080-reports/1080-Operational-Reports/8c05e9d3da/2017-Southland-Cleddau-Report.pdf”Cleddau HYPERLINK

and the 2017 Southland  HYPERLINK “https://www.epa.govt.nz/assets/Uploads/Documents/Hazardous-Substances/1080-reports/1080-Operational-Reports/ff456e54d8/2017-Southland-Cleddau-Map.pdf” which shows the GPS flight path of the 2017 1080 drop into the water catchment area.

Also of interest, according to the above Cleddau report; NO non-target species monitoring was undertaken. The water quality testing (pg 6 of DOC’s operational report 5.2.2) revealed the presence of 1080 at 1ppb.

I can tell you that as of writing, we have quite a few Kea (approx 20) hanging out in and around the village here in Milford.

I wonder how they will fare with the ‘Clean Green’ 1080 pellets raining down in the near future. Will anyone know if they’ve been affected?

To conclude: yes, opinions on the use of 1080 differ here, but no locals  I’ve talked to think tourists shouldn’t at least be fully informed of what might be in their drinking water, to allow them their ‘Free Will’ to drink the local water or not.

Increase the peace

The Catch 22 of 1080 poisoning in NZ – an MD says there is ‘no evidence’ of it because it is not allowed to be looked for

62444473_1280077162169519_3258962622325719040_n.jpg

Probably botulism or another unidentified neuro-toxin again? It could never be 1080 because that is just a deadly chemical weapon that is not supposed to harm the people of NZ. The MOH says that “there is no evidence”. There is no evidence because the Ministry of Non-health does not allow the evidence to be looked for. There is plenty of evidence that 1080 efficiently kills people, causes abortions, causes stillbirths, and causes birth defects and no evidence that it does not. There are no valid clinical trials of 1080 or other poisons because they are POISONS. The only place where people do experiments in which people are exposed to poisons is New Zealand. Other countries have heard about the precautionary principle and medical ethics but the people of New Zealand don’t seem to have been provided with that news. All we get here is false propaganda, published by a tame media, controlled by self-serving bureaucrats in dysfunctional and corrupted government enterprises. When people who are potentially exposed to poisons become ill the cause of illness is ASSUMED TO BE DUE TO POISONING UNTIL CONCLUSIVELY PROVEN OTHERWISE. That is how medicine is practiced in most countries. In New Zealand we already know that the people are potentially exposed to 1080 and other poisons but our Ministry of NOT-Health policy is that people are presumed to NOT BE POISONED by this exposure unless it can be proven beyond any doubt that they have been poisoned. Just to make sure that the PROOF CANNOT BE FOUND the appropriate investigations are also prohibited. This is called a catch 22 conspiracy. People are told that exposure to a deadly poison cannot harm them “because there is no evidence”. There is no evidence because it is not allowed to be looked for. The evidence is not allowed to be looked for because the people have been told that the poison cannot harm them. Without any intent to insult any specific employee of any government enterprise, it has always been generally agreed that any doctor who is competent and capable would never work for the government.

IS HONEY GIANT “COMVITA” TELLING THE TRUTH?

By Carol Sawyer

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.”

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

A Comvita representative responded :

“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.”

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

However the Executive Director of Analytica Laboratories said on 20 June, 2018, in an email to beekeeper Roy Arbon :

“… we are not able to test your honey for 1080 unfortunately, because we don’t have a testing method for doing so…”

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

What happened between March 2018 and June 2018? Did Analytica lose their testing equipment?! Is Comvita telling the truth?

In Sept 2018, 19 Doctors who were neither conspiracy theorists nor violent activists, expressed concern about the depositing of 1080 into Auckland’s water supply

NINETEEN Doctors. If nothing else gets your interest about 1080 poison that certainly should. 

These medical professionals who are against excessive use of poisons in our environment are neither violent, extreme activists nor conspiracy theorists as DoC and the media would have you believe. To confirm this you simply must read the independent information. To begin with at least, here is a list of 19 Doctors … why would they spend their valuable time warning both yourself & the authorities about the perceived  dangers of 1080 in your water supply if there wasn’t any? 

In efforts to prevent the last Hunua Ranges drop this was taken to court by Sue Grey, lawyer where it was noted that DoC’s lawyers asked the judge that their scientist NOT be cross examined. The lawyers were granted their request & the drop went ahead. See the Court approval here.

BELOW IS THE LETTER PREPARED BY DOCTORS WHO WERE CONCERNED ABOUT 1080 POISON BEING DEPOSITED IN DRINKING WATER

Open letter to the Government, Friday, 21st September 2018.

As doctors, we are extremely concerned about the health risk of depositing poisoned bait over 22,500 hectares of the Hunua water catchment area. Specifically, we are concerned about Sodium Fluoroacetate (SMFA / 1080), a known deadly poison which is known to cause sub-lethal effects on reproduction and is classified as a teratogen, having potential to contaminate the Auckland water supply.

There is no effective antidote for 1080 poisoning in humans.

We are extremely concerned that public officials are not adopting a far more precautionary approach to the safety of the Auckland water catchment, especially when the effects of 1080, a highly soluble poison, is not quantifiably able to be tested on how it affects the health of humans.

Studies show that 1080 affects the reproductive organs, the cardiac system, and respiratory system in mammals. There is no safe minimal level known and water testing and sampling after aerial 1080 application cannot prudently protect the public from risk of exposure from this poison.

As doctors, we are responsible for the health of individuals and communities. Therefore, we ask the government to immediately stop the usage of sodium fluoroacetate which has potential to contaminate the New Zealand water supply.

In 2016 a former DOC ranger expressed concerned with 1080 getting into Taranaki’s waterways

Note: Taranaki is soon to be re 1080’d (2019). See details below the Stuff article on that.
I am noticing in discussions around aerial 1080 drops, folk are saying they’ve not heard of any health effects happening. What you need to know however, is when it comes to testing for 1080 there are parameters around time frames for that (as you will see in the Putaruru family’s ordeal in the links below). A retired NZ Medical Doctor has been concerned enough to inform the public that Doctors are bullied into NOT testing for 1080 poisoning. So in his words last September  2018 “if you die from 1080 poisoning, nobody will know [that it was 1080] …”. You should also read our page on suspected 1080 poisonings to see the foot dragging & cover up that is exhibited by our esteemed authorities.

From stuff.co.nz

A former DOC ranger says he’s concerned about 1080 reaching Taranaki’s water supply following aerial drops of the toxin in Egmont National Park.

Barry Ovenden, who has helped conduct 1080 operations in the park in 2002 and 2010, said there had been a lack of public consultation about the poison reaching rivers which run off the mountain and supply the region with fresh water.

“If the drop goes perfectly then there shouldn’t be any problem, the risk is if someone say drops a bucket of it into a stream,” he said.

“By the time DOC have tested that water 24 hours later, the water is already on the way to the tap.”

Ovenden said there hasn’t been a history of negative effects – like sickness – from people drinking 1080 contaminated water in Taranaki, but cautioned the effects were still relatively unknown.

 “DOC test the water supply after the first significant rainfall after the drops, but there’s no long term testing,” he said.

Unlike many stalwart anti-1080 campaigners Ovenden said 1080 was still very effective, but there were other means of controlling pests in the park.

“DOC could conduct that aerial operation on the ground,” he said.

“Sure it would be more expensive, but it wouldn’t be dangerous.

“They (DOC) are dictating to the public of Taranaki that this is the only way.”

However, DOC refutes any claims 1080 poses a danger to our water supply and the government’s environmental watchdog Landcare Research backs up the department’s claims.

According to Landcare’s protocol for sampling and testing water for 1080 there is no evidence water had been contaminated in a study of 76 samples done in 2007.

The report also states that contamination in waterways from 1080 is “highly improbable if current safety procedures are followed”.

The Ministry of Health recommends that water should not be used for drinking if 1080 is found to be above two parts per billion, whereas 70 of the 76 samples done by Landcare were below one part per billion.

DOC spokesperson Herb Christophers said the department simply wouldn’t use 1080 if it was contaminating people’s waterways.

“We base everything we do on the science that supports 1080’s use,” he said.

“There is just no evidence to say it poisons our waterways.”

As for conducting the 1080 operation on the ground, in a more targeted approach to pest control, DOC’s bio-diversity planner Bill Fleury has previously said it would cost 25 times the cost of using 1080 to control pests manually in the park.

Fleury said possums had a small territory and trappers would have to physically trap every hectare in the park to have the same effect as dropping 1080.

“The problem with doing that from the ground is that pests can move back into an area you’ve just baited and nullify any progress you’ve just made,” he said.

1080 is dropped in the the park every six years and this year’s drop is yet to commence as DOC need several fine weather days.

Following this year’s drop DOC will drop 1080 every three years, but at half the dosage.

DETAILS ON THE TARANAKI 1080 AERIAL DROP

EMAIL supplied, dated 18 Feb 2019 from New Plymouth DoC

Hi xxxx

Thank you for your email below. Information regarding Mt Taranaki can be found here – http://taranakimounga.nz/restoration/our-predators/2019-predator-control-operation/.

You’ll note in here that a time period of March-August 2019 is identified. The job is different to 2016, with Kaitake being separate as contributing to a joint project with TRC – Towards a Predator Free Taranaki project. This Kaitake project is intended to start earlier in March (hence the reference to that in the link), with the main cone being later in 2019. This Kaitake timeframe may be what you are hearing, or timings may have changed since the last communication with your friends in November 2018.

Letters are to be sent shortly to more of the community which will include more detail around each part of the job.

Thanks

Sean

The flying range of our mutton birds includes the vicinity of Fukushima but how thorough is NZ’s testing for contamination?

This is dated 2014. As always with detection of possible environmental contamination, the various industries tend to set the bar low enough to eliminate any public concern. Certainly this one does not look too thorough. All due respect to the small players that are of course powerless to stop the fall out from that disaster that still goes on… amidst the endless rounds of denial & cover up by the perpetrators.

From postmanproductions.wordpress.com … TRANSCRIPT concerning the testing of the birds for possible radiation from Fukushima: 

“Mutton birds fly every six years all around the world to the northern hemisphere which includes off the coast of Fukushima. At the moment Ngai Tahu are doing testing … they are only testing the wing tips, and only doing thirty birds, and what they really need to be doing is testing the organs … they are actually testing the chicks of parents that may not have ever been to Fukushima, so they’ll have to keep doing it … that’s the mutton bird island you can see over here …. ”

EDUCATIONAL LAUNCH OF NANOSATELLITES (ELANA)-19 LIFT-OFF, 16 DECEMBER 2018. PHOTO: ROCKET LAB / TREVOR MAHLMANN

Its latest mission may be inadvertently exposing New Zealand to the militarisation of space, writes Ollie Neas.

Rocket Lab made history on Sunday as its first ever mission for NASA made orbit from the Mahia Peninsula. The mission was the first dedicated launch of miniature satellites, or CubeSats, for NASA by a commercial launch provider.

But this was not the only reason the Educational Launch of Nanosatellites (ELaNa)-19 was historic. It was also the first time a satellite for a US defence agency was launched from New Zealand.

Although described as an “educational” mission, ELaNa-19 included a satellite that will conduct research for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, the Pentagon agency which develops cutting-edge technology for the US military.

DARPA’s involvement with this satellite, called the SHFT-1, has not been publicly disclosed by Rocket Lab. Nor does it appear to have been disclosed to the minister for economic development, David Parker, who approved the launch.

This launch is set to be followed by another for DARPA in early 2019 as part of a US Department of Defense programme to demonstrate that it can launch satellites rapidly in the increasingly contested space environment.

These developments come after The Spinoff revealed the extent of Rocket Lab’s work for US defence agencies last month, and signal New Zealand’s creeping involvement in US programmes to enhance its military capabilities in space.

A defence and security expert says these launches expose the risk of New Zealand inadvertently militarising space, and could also undermine New Zealand’s national security.

The SHFT-1 is described in Rocket Lab press releases as a NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory satellite. But NASA’s own Orbital Debris Risk Assessment Plan for the mission indicates that the SHFT-1 is in fact a project of the DARPA Strategic Technology Office (STO), though it was designed by NASA.

The STO focuses on “technologies that enable fighting as a network to increase military effectiveness, cost leverage, and adaptability”. DARPA’s mission generally is to “maintain and advance the capabilities and technical superiority of the United States military”.

A DARPA spokesperson told The Spinoff that the SHFT-1 will measure radio frequencies to improve the performance of over-the-horizon radar ( OTHR).

OTHR is a type of radar system that can detect targets over long distances by bouncing radio waves off the ionosphere, which is a layer of the atmosphere. Its military uses include detecting missiles and stealth aircraft.

But there is no mention of DARPA or OTHR in the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment’s briefing to the economic development minister David Parker, who approved the launch, although one paragraph of the briefing is redacted.

Released under the Official Information Act, this briefing simply describes the SHFT-1 as a NASA JPL satellite that will “study high-frequency signals to support research into galactic background emissions”.

MBIE advised the Parker that it had not identified any national interest concerns from the ELaNa-19 satellites and the New Zealand Intelligence Community identified no risks to national security. Parker’s office declined to confirm to The Spinoff whether he was personally aware that the SHFT-1 is part of a DARPA project, but responded that the minister was briefed on the launch.

“The Minister is satisfied that all the payloads, including the SHFT-1, are to be used to advance science and for research and development purposes and that the mission and purpose of the payloads is not contrary to our national interest,” his office said.

The Outer Space and High-Altitude Activities Act allows the minister to veto a satellite if it is not in the national interest. Although it prohibits the launch of weapons of mass destruction, it does not preclude the use of space for military purposes generally.

MBIE was asked to comment on whether it informed the minister about DARPA’s involvement, but said it would be treating The Spinoff’s questions as an Official Information Act request. Rocket Lab, which provided comment for The Spinoff’s last article, did not reply to a request for comment about the SHFT-1.

Little has been revealed publicly about the broader SHFT programme, which stands for the Space-based High Frequency Testbed. But public records show that US federal government contracts for the programme have been awarded to the defence and weapons contractor Raytheon, the scientific research institute SRI International, and Systems & Technology LLC, a company specialising in “advanced research and development for defense, intelligence and homeland security applications”.

The second DARPA satellite to be launched from New Zealand is called the R3D2 and is part of a joint programme between DARPA and the Office of the Secretary of Defense.

Last month The Spinoff revealed that Rocket Lab would be launching this satellite but until now it was not known whether the launch would be from Rocket Lab’s New Zealand launch site on the Mahia Peninsula, its yet-to-be-constructed site in the US, or some other site entirely.

DARPA now confirms that the launch will be from the Mahia Peninsula and likely in February or March 2019. Rocket Lab has not publicised this launch in any way and has declined two invitations from The Spinoff to comment on it.

David Parker’s office says that he has been informed about DARPA’s interest in the launch but has not considered an application for the R3D2 satellite. “Each application for a payload permit is considered on a case-by-case basis against the requirements in the Outer Space and High-altitude Activities Act,” his office said.

DARPA spokesperson Jared Adams says that the R3D2, which stands for RF Risk Reduction Deployment Demonstration, will demonstrate a new type of “membrane reflect-array antenna”.

“The demo seeks to prove a smaller, faster to launch and cheaper capability, providing increased communication coverage typically covered by geo-communications satellites. The R3D2 effort is in partnership with, and sponsored by, the Office of the Secretary of Defense as part of an effort to demonstrate rapid acquisition of small satellite and launch capabilities.”

It is not clear whether other satellites will be included on this launch. But the US Department of Defense will pay Rocket Lab US$6.5 million, which is close to the US$6.95 million for the whole NASA ELaNa-19 mission.

The US Department of Defense has actively pursued rapid launch capabilities in recent years as other nations challenge its dominance in space. Responding to these challenges, the Trump Administration announced plans in August to create a dedicated Space Force as a sixth branch of the US military.

Rocket Lab’s two DARPA launches indicate that New Zealand is to play a role in US space initiatives. Terry Johanson, a lecturer at Massey University’s Centre for Defence and Security Studies, says that this may pose risks to New Zealand’s national security.

“Some of the threats are from our own cooperation with a larger partner who wants to push their own national interest, which may not necessarily align to what our national interests are in maintaining the non-militarisation of space,” he said.

“An opponent of America could see New Zealand as a more vulnerable area in which to target indirectly America’s space programme or defence program. For example, Russia, North Korea or China could potentially undertake operations here to sabotage the American defense programme.”

Johanson also suggests the government may not have full information about what is being launched from New Zealand due to the Technology Safeguards Agreement, the treaty signed to allow for the transfer of US rocket technology to New Zealand.

The agreement requires the US to provide a written statement about spacecraft it proposes to launch from New Zealand, but precludes New Zealand from launching any spacecraft that the US deems contrary to its laws or policies.

Last Thursday Winston Peters, who is the disarmament and arms control minister, announced that New Zealand will chair the Missile Technology Control Regime in 2019.

“New Zealand’s emerging space industry makes it particularly relevant at this time that we contribute to the effective international control of sensitive missile-related technologies,” Peters said.

China and Russia band together on controversial heating experiments to modify the atmosphere

The government-owned lab, Asure Quality, that tests all the EU bound NZ honey, has no test for 1080

Note: it costs over $400 to test for 1080 the article points out … similarly when I last looked it cost over $500 to test for glyphosate. This of course makes it cost prohibitive for the average person. It is also quite bizarre given the tonnage of 1080 (4,000 pa) that is dropped on our ‘clean green’ (the pellets are green) country.


A TEST FOR 1080 POISON IN HONEY FOUND – BUT IS IT ANY USE ?

By Carol Sawyer

A couple of weeks ago I shared a comment from beekeeper David Brown of Kati Kati, Bay of Plenty. David said :

“Bees have an average foraging range of 3 km and many of us put our hives in or near the bush to collect the lovely bush honey. The bees not only collect the nectar, they also collect sap and resin extracted by the trees and surrounding foliage. They need water as well. ……

The 1080 dust will be collected and taken back to the hive as a food for their young larvae.

1080 that is taken up by the plants is taken back to the hive in the form of nectar and resin that will be converted into honey and propolis

The water has many uses throughout the hive.

Are we putting 1080 into our honey that we feed our kids ?

“Are we putting 1080 into propolis products, which it’s said has many healing and medical uses ?”

​I spoke to David Brown yesterday​ and he pointed out that beeswax products are also an issue.

It takes 7 gms of honey to make 1 gm of wax, he said, so if 1080 is present in the honey, the 1080 poison will be at 7 times greater concentration in the wax. We use beeswax to make lip balms, body lotions and cosmetics, and beeswax candles.

Another beekeeper who has long held concerns about 1080 in honey, Roy Arbon from Greymouth on the West Coast of the South Island, concurs with David Brown on this and, as he pointed out to me, beeswax candles are burnt in churches!

Roy Arbon has been trying to find out where he can get honey tested for 1080 residue. It has taken him three months and he says he has contacted every laboratory in the country. There are only five laboratories apparently. Even the government-owned lab, Asure Quality, has no test for 1080. (Interestingly, Roy tells me Asure Quality test all the NZ honey headed for the European Union.)

Eventually the government-owned Institute of Environmental Science and Research (ESR) put Roy onto another Crown research institute, Landcare Research, and they have a test for 1080 in honey.​ Roy says they can test for 1080 in honey down to 0.005mcgs per kg​. This costs $422 plus GST.

Scientist Sean Weaver, formerly of Victoria University, said in the film “Poisoning Paradise” that 1080 is an endocrine disruptor in parts per TRILLION.​

0.005 mcgs per kg is 5 parts per BILLION. Therefore they need to be measuring in parts per trillion to satisfactorily prove the honey is safe for human consumption.
“Endocrine disruptors are chemicals that can interfere with endocrine (or hormone) systems at certain doses. These disruptions can cause cancerous tumors, birth defects, and other developmental disorders. Any system in the body controlled by hormones can be derailed by hormone disruptors.” – Wikipedia

Surely the honey industry, as a whole, needs to look at this question seriously and demand to be notified well in advance of any 1080 drops in their area so they can move their hives. (1) I am sure there are many conscientious beekeepers who do just that, but it appears from a glance at comments on the NZ Beekeepers’ forum that quite a number are not aware of, or concerned about, the danger.

​(1) However, Roy Arbon says “most departments dropping 1080 do notify the beekeeper if the beekeeper has his hives registered under the American Foul Brood Pest Management Plan (AFB PMP) and everyone is supposed to”, but, he continues, where, for example, do you move 450 hives?!! Good question.

***********************************************************************.

Don Mac posted this comment in NZ Beekeepers Forum on April 23, 2015 :

“There has been a documented connection between 1080 and poisoning of bees. Back in 1988 ‘jam bait’ containing 1080 for possum control was used around the Te Kuiti area. Unknown to the manufacturer the supplier of the raw material used sugar in a batch that attracted bees who took it back to the hives. Inspection of honey comb showed green cells from the dye used in the jam bait to prevent birds eating it.

“Wallaceville testing found 2.2mg/kg of 1080 in the green honey, but were unable to find the 1080 in the dead bees”. Pictures from John Bassett, retired beekeeper from the Te Kuiti area.

Today no sugar or sweeteners are used in vertebrate toxic baits for rats, possums and mustelids .”

( Link here – https://www.nzbees.net/…/5652-whats-the-connection-between…/ )

Don Mac has been incorrectly informed. I spoke to Bill Simmons, Sales and Marketing Executive, Animal Control Products, Whanganui, a year ago. ( ACP , now trading as Orillion, is the government-owned factory that produces NZ’s 1080 baits and other poison products). He assured me sweeteners are still used in 1080 baits. “How else would we attract possums ?! ” he said. He wouldn’t tell me the exact sugar percentage but said, cryptically, that it was in two figures and it wasn’t a three – which means, I presume, that the baits are between 20% and 30% sugar and will therefore be attractive to bees.

ACP ( trading as Orillion ) safety data sheets state :

(a)0.04% 1080 PELLETS
(b)0.08% 1080 RODENT PELLETS
(c)0.08% 1080 PELLETS
(d)0.10% 1080 FERAL CAT BAIT
(e)0.15% 1080 PELLETS
(f )0.2% 1080 PELLETS

Synonyms: 1080 pellets
Active Ingredient: Sodium fluoroacetate 0.04% -0.2%
Other Ingredients:
(a, b, c, e, f) Cereals, sugars and binders
(d) Fishmeal, fish oil and binder

So you can see they mention sugars.

Shocking revelations on 1080 from a former Horizons employee

Carol Sawyer

OLD 1080 STOCK SOLUTION, DDT, CHEMICALS GO OFF IN A SHIP TO FRANCE?!

When it’s not being sprayed round the Palmerston North Landfill, that is. What happens if the ship sinks?!

George Robinson has worked in the pest control industry all his life. When he left the Manawatu/Wanganui (Horizons) Regional Council he had a gagging order put on him, but the time period is now up.

This is the story he told me, and I first posted it in January, 2017 :

They used to use (up to 2008-2009 that he knows of) 20% 1080 stock solution and dilute it to a field solution to put it on the green-dyed carrots, for rabbits. He said they had back packs and had it running down their arms, legs, backs….. They used to find dead birds everywhere, blackbirds especially. They were told it all dissolved in water and broke down.

They were sent to conferences run by NZ Pest Management Officers’ Institute. George says “I believe it was the Food Safety Authority that policed the regulations then”. He remembers one where Charles Eason (now CEO of the Cawthron Institute, but formerly senior manager with Landcare Research and a Professor at Lincoln University) spoke and told them “three pisses and the 1080 is gone from your system”.

They had a big holding tank and the stock solution could be held for up to 7 or 8 years before it was no good, but a man from a waste removal transport company would come along and pump out the holding tank. He would take it down to the Palmerston North landfill and spread it all over the ground, driving round in a circle. George says this guy was a straight-up sort of chap who was amazed that he was given permission to do it.

There was a facility in France where some of the stuff collected went – old farm chemicals such as DDT, etc. It goes on a ship which “must be a very toxic shipload”, George said. (I have been told recently that that facility in France is no longer used… I’m not sure where it goes now – Note 29 July, 2018).

He said that at present, Horizons are using Brodificoum on pastureland amongst stock, for possum control. He said it has killed stock but that the worst thing is that it accumulates in the liver and remains in the sheeps’ livers for 36 months. He said Horizons are using the High Strength version.

He himself has a CSL (Controlled Substance Licence).

He says Horizons must be one of the biggest users of Brodificoum. He rang Affco to see if they tested and they said they did random testing, and the Ministry of Primary Industries also assured him they did random testing. He said to them ” Why don’t you test the stock from the paddocks where you use Brodificoum?” but they didn’t want to know!

He said the Ministry of Health used to police the regulations but now that duty has gone to the Ministry of Primary Industries.

He said Horizons have a whole lot of operations, all doing the same thing – killing rats and possums. He said they will be killing birds as well and that the sheep and other livestock “hoover it up”. He said the bait stations are 1.8 metres off the ground, but the deer and cattle can reach them, and the possums are messy eaters and get it all over the ground, so the sheep can get it too.

George left Horizons because he was arguing with them about their 10 year plan for Brodifacoum pest control, and says he was forced out because he was against it.

He said the Greater Wellington Council is using Brodifacoum too. They used it on Tawaiti Station (a safari hunting operation on the East Coast). It killed a few deer and as they were going to sell some, they thought they had better test them for Brodifacoum. They found so much Brodifacoum in them that they shot around 70 deer and burnt the carcasses!

BREAKING: US HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES CAN’T FIND 32 YEARS OF VACCINE SAFETY RESEARCH

So this department overseeing the health of the public can’t find 32 years of vaccine safety research?  Time to get reading the independent research to date isn’t it? As many folk already are.

From jeffereyjackson.com

The 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act started the process to fully absolve pharmaceutical companies from liability for the injuries and deaths their vaccine products cause. In addition, the 1986 Act also removed the normal market forces and legal repercussions which exist to ensure safer vaccine products. By giving economic immunity to Big Pharma, it removed any incentive for those companies to maintain, improve on and guarantee the safety of their vaccines.

Instead, the 1986 Act put the US Health and Human Services (HHS) in charge of doing continued safety and quality monitoring of the vaccines comprising America’s recommended vaccine schedule. HHS was tasked with two jobs: to end infectious disease and to reduce the risk of vaccine injury. Specifically, the 1986 Act states in subsection a, that HHS shall:

promote the development of childhood vaccines that result in fewer and less serious adverse reactions than those vaccines on the market…” and to “make or assure improvements in…the manufacturing, testing, warning, field surveillance, adverse reaction reporting and researching on vaccines in order to reduce the risk of adverse reactions to vaccines.”

There was also a deadline for HHS to adhere to when applying the above mandated criteria. The 1986 Act states:

Within 2 years after December 22, 1987, and periodically thereafter, the Secretary shall prepare and transmit…a report describing the actions taken pursuant to subsection a…

Last year, Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) sent a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to HHS asking for any documents related to the work done by HHS pursuant to the mandate laid out in the 1986 Act. In short, the FOIA request asked for any reports HHS has given the US Congress over the last 32 years that show they are making vaccines safer. After HHS was unable to produce the requested documents, ICAN, along with Robert F. Kennedy Jr., filed a lawsuit. The lawsuit gave HHS three options:

  1. To give all the information as requested in the original FOIA request
  2. To give a credible explanation why HHS can’t disclose the information; or
  3. To admit HHS doesn’t have any documents which would show they have done what they were tasked to do

​In the end, HHS recently settled with what is called a court ordered stipulation, admitting the following:​

There’s absolutely NO sound science backing the assumption that vaccination during pregnancy is safe

Having heard recently of NZ GPs advising pregnant mothers to vaccinate I’m posting this for you to consider. Ask your Doctor to show you the research that tells you it’s been tested thoroughly on pregnant women. It would seem there will be little if anything to show you. You may be the guinea pig perhaps. This article is from an Dr Mercola’s website. From the article:

Drug companies did not test the safety and effectiveness of giving influenza or Tdap vaccine to pregnant women before the vaccines were licensed in the U.S

Check it out for yourself.

Story at-a-glance

  • In decades past, women were as a general rule told to avoid toxic exposures during pregnancy, such as cigarette smoke, alcohol, household cleaning products, radiation, medications and other toxic exposures
  • Today, pregnant women face a set of difficult questions and choices about keeping themselves and their babies healthy, as they’re increasingly being told to get a variety of vaccines during pregnancy
  • In 2006, the CDC strengthened recommendations that all pregnant women, healthy or not, should get a flu shot in any trimester. As of 2011, a pertussis-containing Tdap shot is also recommended for all pregnant women
  • The time-honored rule of avoiding any potential toxic exposure that might interfere with the normal development of the fetus has been suspended and replaced with an assumption that vaccination during pregnancy is safe
  • There’s absolutely NO sound science backing the assumption that vaccination during pregnancy is safe. On the contrary, there is a lack of available science and testing in this area.

By Barbara Loe Fisher

It was 1977 when I found out I was going to become a Mom. I instinctively knew I needed to be careful while I was pregnant, especially during the first two trimesters when the major organ systems of the fetus develop at a rapid rate. In the 1960s, there had been a lot of publicity about babies dying or being born without arms or legs because women had taken a drug (Thalidomide) for morning sickness in the first or second trimester of pregnancy1 and I wanted to make sure I did everything I could to protect my health and the health of my baby before and after he was born.

Mothers to be in my generation were told to take extra vitamins and eat nutritious food but, most of all, to avoid anything that could harm the developing fetus like alcohol, cigarette smoke, medications, radiation, household cleaning products and other toxic exposures. Some of us were aware of the risks of heavy anesthesia during delivery and signed up for Lamaze classes to prepare for a drug-free birth, which many obstetricians discouraged, and we chose to breastfeed, even though a lot of pediatricians were pushing formula and bottles back then.

Today, pregnant women face a different set of difficult questions and choices about keeping themselves and their babies healthy. Among them are whether or not to get vaccinations during pregnancy that public health officials, obstetricians and pediatricians say will protect pregnant women and their newborns from getting sick with influenza and B. pertussis whooping cough.

Toxic Exposures & Assumption of Safety – Is It A Good Idea?

Although since the 1970s, public health officials have recommended influenza vaccinations for pregnant women in the second or third trimester,2 relatively few obstetricians promoted the vaccine until the past decade when, in 2006, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) strengthened recommendations that all pregnant women, healthy or not, should get a flu shot in any trimester.3

Then, in 2011, a pertussis containing Tdap shot was recommended for all pregnant women, preferably after 20 weeks gestation.4 Both current vaccine recommendations are5, 6, 7 endorsed by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG),8, 9 the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and other medical trade associations.10, 11

With these recommendations, the time-honored rule of avoiding any potential toxic exposure that might interfere with the normal development of the fetus has been suspended and replaced with an assumption that vaccination during pregnancy is safe. But what is the scientific evidence documenting that this assumption is a well-informed one?

Glaring Lack of Safety Testing

You have to look no further than information in the vaccine manufacturer product inserts and posted online by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to quickly answer that question.

FACT: Drug companies did not test the safety and effectiveness of giving influenza or Tdap vaccine to pregnant women before the vaccines were licensed in the U.S.12, 13 and there is almost no data on inflammatory or other biological responses to these vaccines that could affect pregnancy and birth outcomes.14

There have been no reports of any teen contracting cervical cancer from HPV ever – what you need to know about the Gardasil vaccine

Gardasil, the HPV (Human Papillomavirus) vaccine on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) list of recommended inoculations for teenagers, has been the subject of debate worldwide since it was fast-tracked for approval in the US in 2006. The Merck-manufactured drug was developed to prevent infections caused by HPV, which is a group of 150 related viruses — 15 of which are linked to cervical cancer. At the heart of the controversies are questions around the need for the vaccine, the GardasilGirl.jpgefficacy of the vaccine and the fast-growing number of reports of severe reactions to the vaccine. The latter question has moved to the forefront of the debate as safety testing concerns have been raised and the number of vaccine-injured children has grown.

Gardasil- A Case of Insufficient Testing?

Despite no recorded outbreak of cervical cancer nor change in sexual behavioral risks among teenagers, Gardasil vaccine was studied for less than two years prior to its approval. This was particularly curious since the cancer the vaccine purports to prevent does not present itself for 20-30 years.

And, while the drug was tested only on women aged 16-23 before it became the first licensed HPV vaccine in the United States, today it is recommended for boys and girls as young as 10 years old.

Moreover, Gardasil was not tested on people with health problems nor in combination with all the other vaccines routinely administered to American adolescents, such as Tdap and meningococcal vaccines.

Although the CDC claims that sufficient testing has been done, The National Vaccine Information Center discovered the opposite from independent research on the combination of Gardasil and Menactra (a meningococcal vaccine), if given on the same day. Respiratory problem reports increased by 114%, cardiac problems by 118%, neuromuscular and coordination problems by 234%, convulsions by 301%, and injuries caused by falls after unconsciousness shot up by 674%.

NZ has a rocket base that’s received $25 million Govt funding & is financially supported by the world’s largest weapons trader, Lockheed Martin

Time for a reblog of this one, with a launch that’s happened this week. I still fail to see what is celebratory about a ‘partnership’ with one of the largest weapons traders on the planet.  The corporation is so big that it is the equivalent almost, of a private second government. The average household in America has what he calls a ‘Lockheed Martin tax’. The sum of around $260 is taken from all pockets to pay this company basically to spy on Americans through the NSA & CIA, even tracking packages in the US postal. As well as all this of course they make ballistic missiles among other weaponry to sell to foreign governments.  Read more on that here.

Did you know that NZ now has a rocket base? This news seems to have flown under the radar for many. I only noticed it myself a month or so ago. The base is actually situated in Mahia on the East Coast of the North Island, however it was originally planned for the South Island at Kaitorete Spit near Christchurch, also near Birdling Flat and the Radar/Haarp Station there (more on NZ Haarp here and here). The length of time obtaining consents appears to have been the deciding factor about a change in tack.  Rocket Lab noted one thing that prevented it from launching close to Christchurch which was the need for a cultural impact assessment from the council. A decision was made to locate…

Animal Carcasses and 1080 Poison Baits Contaminate Waterways – District Health Board Responds Clyde Graf

From Tasmanian Times
he Graf Boys – Clyde & Steve Graf

Rural families all across New Zealand are being exposed to 1080 poison, and increased risks of bacteria from decomposing animal carcasses, in their drinking water. In August, two councillors from Waikato Regional Council presented concerns to the Waikato District Health Board’s Medical Officers of Health, after many community members were unwittingly drawing water that had 1080 poison bait dropped directly into it. The Department of Conservation, one of the government agencies that undertake aerial 1080 poisoning operations, failed to appropriately inform the local residents.

A video covering several different incidents includes testimony from a Hawkes Bay family explaining how they were exposed to the poison while walking through a local forest. When they visited their hospital they were informed there wasn’t much that could be done, as there was no test immediately available for 1080 poisoning.

When aerial operations are undertaken, poison bait is dropped directly into streams within the operational areas. Landcare Research states in their water testing protocol that “water samples taken within 8 hours of bait application are expected to provide the greatest likelihood of detecting any residual 1080.” One of the conditions set by the Medical Officer of Health is that the poison operator provide mitigation if it’s requested by household occupiers or managers of huts/camping grounds, until any water contamination is proved clear via water testing.
