3,544 deaths and 12,619 serious injuries reported between Dec. 14, 2020 and April 23, 2021
One of the world’s most prominent medical doctors with expertise in treating COVID-19 has gone on the record with a scathing rebuke of the U.S. government’s approach to fighting the virus. He says the government’s strategy, carried out in cooperation with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the United Nations World Health Organization, has resulted in tens of thousands of unnecessary deaths and is now being followed up with thousands more deaths caused by a mass-injection program.
Dr. Peter McCullough, in a 32-minute interview with journalist Alex Newman, said if this were any other vaccine it would have been pulled from the market by now for safety reasons.
McCullough holds the honor of being the most cited medical doctor on COVID-19 treatments at the National Library of Medicine, with more than 600 citations. He has testified before Congress and won numerous awards during his distinguished medical career.

If you can be bothered reading the entire accompanying piece of propaganda from LSM’s Herald, do. However the concluding few paragraphs are enough for you to get the gist of what is being lodged into your cerebral cortex here … I’ve italicized the relevant lines below:
“But the new world was born from the wreckage of the old.
And foreseeing the future of this world isn’t easy.
“I’ve largely been socially isolated since mid-February. But I still get a paycheck,” Hitchcock says. “I bought a new bicycle and a bunch of nice new clothes. I go out with my dogs. I write my articles. We order Uber many nights. The garbage gets collected. So life hasn’t really changed.”
But it’s not that way for everybody.
The world is awash with woes. And, as history teaches us, we’ll likely not recognise the last grain of sand that brings everything tumbling down.
“Maybe it’s time to look at where the economy’s going instead of trying to bring it back to where it was,” Hitchcock says.“
So … as some of us know with the so called reset they’re promoting everywhere to get you used to their idea, rising from the ashes is a script if you like from the phoenix scenario (not the eagle as some think it is) on the US dollar … (covered in Barry Smith’s lectures) it is alluding to the ‘new world order’, rising from the ashes of the old system, and as we’ve learned, this great reset is merely the very old nwo pig with fresh lipstick.
This piece from mainstream is accustoming you to the new normal … no return in other words to what you’ve known for generations past. And Kiwis, don’t believe your PM is ignorant of this. She is right in step with the program, being a socialist globalist herself (for further links on her socialist connection, type ‘Jacinda Adern’ into the search box). Back of all this is Fabian Socialism. Educate yourself on NZ’s involvement here (read Naomi Jacobs’ info in the pdf).
Basically, you’ll own nothing and folks… you WILL be happy. Whether you want to or not. Sounding fascist? That’s because it is. Note: if this info is new to you please visit the One World Government/New World Order page to educate yourself. Further, a recent post by Catherine Austin Fitts is one that summarizes everything quite accurately and succinctly. EWR
The global elites at the United Nations and the World Economic Forum are very upset that you might accidentally stumble across the truth about the Messenger 33 coronavirus vaccine, the mind-numbing side effects and the coming digital identification, so they have launched a site called ‘Verified’ to tell you what your opinion is. Not only that, they have so far recruited over 110,000 ‘information volunteers’ to make sure you don’t stray too far off the official script. In Nazi Germany, it was called the Ministry of Propaganda, in 2020 it’s called the Ministry of Misinformation. “George Orwell, please report to the courtesy counter, George Orwell to the courtesy counter, please.”
The UN is also encouraging social media influencers to help spread real news about the pandemic. There is a cute little hashtag that goes with the ‘Verified’ site, called #PledgeToPause, and what are they actually asking you to do? They are asking you to, when you feel the urge to do some independent, critical thinking, to ‘pledge to pause’ those thoughts until your sanity returns, and return back to the fold of the other mindless drones who think the United Nations has their best interests at heart. You are living in a movie, and everything you are watching is scripted theater, never forget that. Also never forget that all of this is the unfolding of bible prophecy.

SHOW NOTES AND MP3: https://www.corbettreport.com/?p=24543 We’ve all heard of “sustainable development,” but what does it actually mean? Is it really about protecting the earth, or is it just another tool for foisting an agenda of carbon eugenics and technocracy? Join us this week on The Corbett Report as we rip off the green mask of the oiligarchs and expose the 2030 Agenda for what it really is.
The South Pacific archipelago of New Zealand is in the process of being fully absorbed into an emergent technocratic bio-security operating system amid the ‘Great Corona Reset’.
This global reset bears the hallmarks of a sophisticated bio-terrorism plot authorized by a ‘supreme group’ at the head of supranational deep state network that are operating at a level well above the pay-grades of the world’s visible political, military, corporate and religious leaders.
Indeed, the rhetoric emerging from the billionaire-funded World Economic Forum about Covid-19 opening up an opportunity for a ‘Great Reset’ to accelerate the Fourth Industrial Revolution is highly revealing, given that key players seek nothing less than to re-purpose the bio-functionality of all life – including humans.i
The drive to re-code culture with new language, images, and their metaphors by a Global Health Syndicate – which is a subsidiary of the Western Empire Syndicate – is actually critical to the capture of the most valuable frontier: the space between mortal human ears.
The lock-step bio-security mechanisms that have unfolded occurred in accordance with a directive issued in a health emergency preparedness report titled, “A World at Risk”, that was published on September 18th 2019 by a teething one-year-old institution of the United Nations called the Global Policy Monitoring Board (GPMB). This United Nations board – which was convened by the World Bank Group and the World Health Organization at the request of the United Nations Secretary-General – called for two system-wide ‘pandemic exercises’ to be performed by September 2020, including the deliberate release of a lethal respiratory pathogen.ii

In today’s episode of CDC/WHO holds the world hostage and builds a new wing on its mystical temple of lying science, while trance-induced billions stare at their TV sets for the latest fabrications, we begin here—
Author Michael Fumento sets off an explosion in his recent article on the failure of epidemic models: “’The … crisis we face is unparalleled in modern times,’ said the World Health Organization’s assistant director, while its director general proclaimed it ‘likely the greatest peacetime challenge that the United Nations and its agencies have ever faced.’ This was based on a CDC computer model projection predicting as many as 1.4 million deaths from just two countries.”
“So when did they say this about COVID-19? Trick question: It was actually about the Ebola virus in Liberia and Sierra Leone five years ago, and the ultimate death toll was under 8,000.”
Well, look, the CDC and WHO have to stay in business, right? They can’t allow a fallow period of no pandemics. They HAVE TO predict dire consequences. Otherwise, some people might start questioning their budgets. It’s a fight for bureaucratic survival, and if millions or billions of people have to lose their jobs and income and freedom in the process, so be it.
Here is a key paragraph from the CDC’s latest brain-twisting definition of a COVID case. As you’ll see, it allows the counting of cases where no confirmatory diagnostic test has been done on a patient at all. Have to inflate those numbers, right? How else can an agency justify its existence?
“As of April 14, 2020, CDC case counts and death counts include both confirmed and probable cases and deaths…A confirmed case or death is defined by meeting confirmatory laboratory evidence for COVID-19. A probable case or death is defined by i) meeting clinical criteria AND epidemiologic evidence with no confirmatory laboratory testing performed for COVID-19; or ii) meeting presumptive laboratory evidence AND either clinical criteria OR epidemiologic evidence; or iii) meeting vital records criteria with no confirmatory laboratory testing performed for COVID19.”
If you spend too long trying to decipher the meaning of every phrase and term in that definition, you might find yourself in the labyrinth of a psych ward. But it IS obvious that a COVID case without a confirming diagnostic test is being welcomed on board. “Sure, why not, join the party.”
Meanwhile, out front, on television, and quietly in the Oval Office, petty bureaucrat, numbers massager, and interim president of the United States of Crackdown Lockdown, Anthony Fauci, can switch case numbers up and down and sideways. He can shovel it high and deep to his heart’s content. All in all, his job is keeping the public health gravy train moving, while covering the caboose (ass) of that train.
Fauci, New England Journal of Medicine, February 28, 2020, “Navigating the Uncharted”:
“If one assumes that the number of asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic cases is several times as high as the number of reported cases, the case fatality rate may be considerably less than 1%. This suggests that the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%) or a pandemic influenza (similar to those in 1957 and 1968)…”
In case there is any doubt, those “pandemic influenza seasons” of 1957 and 1968 did NOT result in any lockdowns. People went outdoors. They mingled. They sat in stadiums. They went to their jobs.
Fauci, March 30, 2020, Reason Magazine: “Jake Tapper asked Fauci how many COVID-19 cases the United States can expect to see, ‘To be honest with you, we don’t really have any firm idea,’ Fauci said. ‘There are things called models. And when someone creates a model, they put in various assumptions. And the model is only as good and as accurate as your assumptions…Looking at what we’re seeing now,’ Fauci said, ‘we’re going to have millions of cases’ in the United States, and it is reasonable to expect ‘between 100,000 and 200,000’ deaths. But he cautioned that ‘I just don’t think that we really need to make a projection, when it’s such a moving target, that you can so easily be wrong and mislead people.’ Deborah Birx, coordinator of the White House’s COVID-19 task force, yesterday cited similar but somewhat less alarming estimates, saying ‘between 80,000 and 160,000, maybe even potentially 200,000 people,’ could be killed by COVID-19 in the United States.”
Uh huh. Right. Sure. Bad flu season. Really bad flu season. Millions of cases. Between 80,000 and 200,000 thousand dead in the US. Depends on the definition of a COVID case and how jacked up the numbers are. Depends on which computer model and projection is used.
Depends on whether the talking heads decide it’s a day for tough love or just plain tough. Either way, some version of fiction is going to run like sewer water out of their mouths.
It’s Christmas and birthday and Thanksgiving all rolled into one for the CDC and WHO. They’ve finally gotten what they wanted, all through the parade of AIDS, West Nile, SARS, bird flu, Swine Flu, Zika, and the terrorist smallpox scare:
MASS IMPRISONMENT OF THE POPULATION.
And as I’ve said from the beginning, the key moment was the Chinese Regime locking down 50 million people overnight. That was the signal and the model and the “breakthrough.” “They did it, so we can do it, too.”
All hype, all theater, all the time.
Bush Snr Quote: “… a new era … freer from the threat of terror, stronger in the pursuit of justice, and more secure in the quest for peace. An era in which the nations of the world, east and west, north and south, can prosper and live in harmony. A hundred generations have searched for this elusive path to peace while a thousand wars raged across the span of human endeavour. And today that new world is struggling to be born. A world quite different from the one we’ve known, a world where the rule of law supplants the rule of the jungle, a rule where the nations recognize the shared responsibility for freedom and justice. A world where the strong respect the rights of the weak …. ”
Please do listen to all of these speeches starting from 1991 or thereabouts … & pontificate on what’s really happened since then. They sold us the ‘sustainability’ lies (aka Agenda 21) on the back of this & now we have more wars, more pollution, more poverty, more suicide, more fascist control of the masses & more terror. You cannot believe these liars … they do not walk the talk. EWR
Thank you for exposing this sadistic man and standing up for truth Paul Zentveld. Shame on the NZ government. EWR
The prestigious Leveling The Playing Field awards, an annual award open for New Zealanders speaking out against human rights, corruption and environmental harm has presented it’s second award for the 2020 season to Paul Zentveld for his work in exposing the Lake Alice torture program.
Paul Zentveld took the complaint to the United Nations Committee on Torture after the NZ government sought to ignore complaints. In fact, the NZ Medical Council assisted the torturer-in-charge to flee New Zealand with a clean record to where he now resides in Melbourne, Dr Selwyn Leeks.
The United Nations have condemned the NZ Government for their failure to take action. The torture involved physical and sexual abuse of an extreme nature including use of ECT, electro-shock to parts of the body including genitals on the children held at the torture facility.
On March 9th Paul was presented with the award in Auckland, a high quality hard-cover copy of the L Ron Hubbard biography edition “Freedom Fighter, Articles and Essays,” an account of Hubbard’s personal letters to US Government and other essays on Justice and more.
On being presented, Paul responded “I am honoured to receive this award. I am a trail blazer for the truth and justice, for the first time in Wellington in 2006 and now 2020 at the United Nations. This is to show the world the truth; torturing children is okay by New Zealand government, but not by its citizens. Justice has been served. Thank you to all. How dare they!”
There are a further 22 awards open for this year by Leveling The Playing Field. The organizer, Nigel Gray, stated “The purpose of the award is to provide an incentive and validation to those in our communities around New Zealand who work so hard to expose what is really going on. Moreover this award is for the real people who do their work, unsupported by government or corporate interests but do it because they care for others more than anything else.”
According to the “Leveling the Playing Field” facebook page. the first award for 2020 was to Environmental Lawyer and Co Leader of the Outdoors Party, Sue Grey, for her work in educating New Zealanders about the harm of 5G.

The hoax of the man-made Global Warming is being imposed on the world by many methods, both subtle and blatant. Proponents of the Global Green Agenda have embarked on a programme of mass deception, while scientists who attempt to blow the whistle on the fraud are silenced, tarred, ridiculed and fired. The Gaian cult that has permeated the United Nations is using the hysteria of Global Warming to impose draconian control measures on society and centralise world power.
“Humanity is sitting on a time bomb. If the vast majority of the
world’s scientists are right, we have just ten years to avert a
major catastrophe that could send our entire planet’s climate system
into a tail-spin of epic destruction involving extreme weather, floods,
droughts, epidemics and killer heat waves beyond anything we have
ever experienced – a catastrophe of our own making.“
– Al Gore,
An Inconvenient Truth
With the continual bombardment of ‘climate doom’ stories today, it is hard to imagine a time when global warming was not a ‘top priority’ on the social, political and economic agenda. Everything from floods in England to poverty in the Third World is now being blamed on global warming. However, it is a relatively new phenomenon, barely discussed until 20 years ago, and established as a significant policy issue only in the past 15 or so years.
Usually a scientific theory takes many decades to become established, and only after the most rigorous testing under many different scenarios, does it achieve ‘scientific consensus’. However, when it comes to Global Warming its proponents claim that there is no argument or debate to be had. Their current crusade is to turn Global Warming into something that supposedly no honest and decent person can disagree about, as they have already done with ‘environmental sustainability’. Al Gore often says “Climate change is a moral issue.” In other words it is all about you, and your destructive behaviour.
The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has confidently announced ‘the science is settled’ on man-made Global Warming. Their most recent set of reports declares that “the debate over the science of climate change is well and truly over. Unified international political commitment is now urgently required to take action to avoid dangerous climate change.”
However, the science is not settled. Many renowned climatologists strongly disagree with the IPCC’s conclusions about the cause and potential magnitude of Global Warming. More than 20,000 scientists have now signed the Oregon Petition which criticises it as ‘flawed’ research and states that “any human contribution to climate change has not yet been demonstrated.” Dr Chris Landsea resigned from the IPCC because he “personally could not in good faith continue to contribute to a process that I view as both being motivated by pre-conceived agendas and being scientifically unsound.”
The IPCC claims that more than 2,500 respected scientists and policy makers collaborate to write its climate change assessments but less than a tenth of these ‘experts’ actually hold qualifications in climatology, most were in fact educated in the political and social sciences. The panel that edits and approves the reports are appointed by the United Nations, and more than half are actually UN officials. Dr Richard Lindzen, who is a genuine climate expert, resigned from the IPCC process after his contributions were completely rewritten by the panel.
“It’s not 2,500 people offering their consensus, I participated in that. Each person who is an author writes one or two pages in conjunction with someone else. They travel around the world several times a year for several years to write it and the summary for policymakers has the input of a handful of scientists, but ultimately, it is written by representatives of governments, and of environmental organizations, each pushing their own agenda.” – MIT’s Professor of Atmospheric Science Dr. Richard Lindzen on the IPCC report.
Czech President Klaus stated “It is not fair to refer to the UN panel as a group of scientists. The IPCC is not a scientific institution. It’s a political body, a sort of non-government organization of green flavour. It’s neither a forum of neutral scientists nor a balanced group of scientists. These people are politicized scientists, and UN bureaucrats, who arrive there with a one-sided opinion and a one-sided assignment.”
Asserting ‘the science is settled’ ignores the debate that still rages, and the constant shrieking by alarmists like Al Gore reveals that Global Warming is being used to push a hidden agenda. They are not really interested in the science at all. Even their much vaunted consensus is a myth. The Global Warming Petition Project has been signed by more than 31,000 American scientists, including more than 9,000 with PhDs. Signers include world renowned physicists such as Prof. Edward Teller and Prof. Freeman Dyson. Nearly 4,000 signers are scientists trained in specialties directly related to the physical environment of the Earth and the past and current phenomena that affect that environment.
The petition states: “There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gasses is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate. Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth.”
Proclaiming that “climate change is real” is a nonsensical statement and ignores the Earth’s continual natural warming and cooling cycles. Vikings settled in Greenland and raised crops and cattle 1000 years ago, while Britons grew grapes in England. Four hundred years later, Greenland froze and the Vikings starved. Europe was gripped in a Little Ice Age. The Thames froze all the way up to London. Another surge in temperatures saw widespread global droughts in the mid-1600s. Temperatures plunged again around 1700’s. The globe warmed in 1800-1940, cooled for the next 35 years, then warmed again. The 1940-1975 cooling period occurred despite the fact that industrial production and release of CO2 vastly accelerated during this time. This led to political and media scaremongering about Global Cooling, and the threat of a new ice age.
Again, this arose out of a misunderstanding of long term temperature fluctuations. Scientists have discovered that the sun not only has a regular 11 year cycle of sunspot activity. They have now discovered a significant 200 year cycle. Sunspot and solar radiation activity almost exactly parallel temperature changes on the Earth. It correlates well with the anomalous post-war temperature dip, when global carbon dioxide levels were rising very fast. The increase in solar radiation prevents the formation of clouds, which have a cooling effect on the planet, therefore the temperature rises.
Other recent studies, published in Nature and other leading journals, conclude that the sun’s radiant heat and solar radiation levels affect planetary warming and cloud formation more strongly than acknowledged by Global Warming alarmists. After all, why would natural forces that caused the climate to change in past centuries suddenly stop now? And how does man-made Global Warming explain why every planet in our solar system appears to be simultaneously warming up? Does this not suggest that Global Warming is a natural cycle as a result of the dynamic nature of the sun?
In the proposed legislation, according to the nzherald.co.nz:
- There will be a national registry of all guns.
- All gun ownership and all gun sales will be tracked.
- There will be a 5 year limit to a gun license, which will have to be renewed to continue ownership.
- A gun license will be required to purchase gun parts and accessories
- A separate license will be required for shooting clubs
- Rules for gun dealers to obtain a license will be tightened.
- A dealers license will be required for more activities than currently.
- The law accedes to the United Nations protocols on firearms and ammunition controls
- There will be more offences and higher penalties than at present
- There will be changes to allow fees to be changed, as part of regulations, to cover the cost of these new laws
In New Zealand, the far-left government has decided a national gun registry is necessary. They have been unsuccessful in confiscating (with payment) most of the previously legally owned semi-automatic rifles in the country. There has been massive civil disobedience among New Zealand gun owners.
The party line of the leftist government is there is no right to own guns in New Zealand. They cannot be entirely sure of that, because part of the new gun control scheme is to place into law the premise that there is no legal right to arms for New Zealanders. From npr.org:
New Zealand’s government is planning to create a registry of all guns in the country and stiffen penalties on illegal gun sales and modifications. The move comes six months after a gunman killed 51 people at mosques in Christchurch.
“Owning a firearm is a privilege not a right,” New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said Friday. “That means we need to do all we can to ensure that only honest, law-abiding citizens are able to obtain firearms licenses and use firearms.”
The majority of crimes that involve guns, she added, were committed by people who didn’t have a license and who used guns that were either sold illegally or stolen
A New Zealand Academic, Alexander Gillespie, made the claim there is no right to gun ownership in New Zealand From pri.org:
Are there any privacy concerns about this gun registry?
There was near-universal agreement for the buyback scheme but once we have the registry that two main political parties are splitting right down the middle, the concern is partly about privacy, and partly around it not being necessary. You must remember we don’t have a right to own firearms. We have a privilege to own firearms.
“For New Zealanders, Agenda 21 means the complete destruction of a way of life that most people see as positive.”
Agenda 21 and the Draft NZ Biodiversity Strategy
By Barbara McKenzie
The current New Zealand government has produced a raft of measures to implement the United Nations Agenda 21, including the draft Biodiversity Strategy, the Zero Carbon Bill, the Oil and Exploration Bill, and the One Billion Trees Fund.
In 1992 Agenda 21 was adopted in Rio de Janeiro at the UN Earth Summit Conference on Environment and Development. It is defined by the United Nations as a ‘comprehensive plan for action to be taken globally, nationally, and locally by organizations of the United Nations system, governments and major groups in every area in which humans impact the environment.’ New Zealand is signatory to this (ostensibly non-binding) international treaty with over 100 other countries.
‘The UN’s Agenda 21 is definitely comprehensive and global — breathtakingly so. Agenda 21 proposes a global regime that will monitor, oversee, and strictly regulate our planet’s oceans, lakes, streams, rivers, aquifers, sea beds, coastlands, wetlands, forests, jungles, grasslands, farmland, deserts, tundra, and mountains. It even has a whole section on regulating and “protecting” the atmosphere. It proposes plans for cities, towns, suburbs, villages, and rural areas. It envisions a global scheme for healthcare, education, nutrition, agriculture, labor, production, and consumption — in short, everything; there is nothing on, in, over, or under the Earth that doesn’t fall within the purview of some part of Agenda 21.’ (William Jasper, Your Hometown and the United Nations Agenda 21)
Agenda 21 is the culmination and ultimate expression of a number of UN Conferences and UN-drafted pacts and declarations to do with the place of humanity in the environment, and the management of humanity overall. Almost all of these have been signed by New Zealand. They are dominated by two assumed, overriding and non-negotiable values – debate of the first never arises, and of the second is never permitted:
- The precedence of ‘biodiversity’ over all other rights, even of human life;
- The non-negotiability of the catastrophic anthropogenic global warming narrative.
The United Nations vision includes the following priorities:
- High-density (forced) urbanisation
- Reduction or elimination of private property rights
- Reduction of population
or in brief: Agenda 21 in One Easy Lesson
The American Wildlands Project
The American Wildlands Project, (now calling itself the Wildlands Network) is an implementation of UN policies on biodiversity and human habitat. It proposes to set up to one-half of America into core wilderness reserves and interconnecting corridors, all surrounded by interconnecting buffer zones. No human activity would be permitted in the core reserves and corridors, and only highly regulated activity would be permitted in the buffer zones. Human settlement would be in high density cities. The purpose of the corridors is to allow large animals like bison to roam free, including migration across the continent.
Ratification of the United Nations Convention of Biological Diversity was defeated in the US Senate, when the concept of the Wildlands Project formed the bsis for the convention. A number of American states have taken steps to ban Agenda 21 and the local body network ICLEI, specifically set up to ensure implementation of Agenda 21 (most cities in New Zealand belong to ICLEI).
The principles of Agenda 21 and the Wildlands Project are being enacted by Local Bodies and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). People are jailed and/or heavily fined for interfering with the slightest trickle of water on their property; small towns are startled to find high-rise, high density developments out of all keeping approved; farmers and other rural dwellers are being forced off their land through taxation or zoning. Powers of eminent domain have been extended to allow councils to agree with developers to confiscate private land, in order to build pack and stack subdivisions, also used to take land for projects such as bike paths.
‘Individual rights will have to take a back seat to the collective.’ Harvey Ruvin, Vice Chairman, ICLEI. The Wildlands Project
Note: the term Agenda 21 is no longer used by the UN and governments, because of the negative connotations it has acquired. Instead they talk of sustainability and resilience: the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals are in fact Agenda 21 goals.
New Zealand has had a policy of preserving native forest, and protecting native fauna, and generally caring for the environment, independent of the United Nation. About 30% of New Zealand is forested, on public or private land – this is far more than most industrialised countries. National parks also include large tracts of non-forested land which are protected from development. Cities have extensive reserves. Many suburban sections in hilly towns like Wellington, even modest ones, have small tracts of native bush.
New Zealanders have a very close physical connection with nature and the outdoors, perhaps through pursuits like tramping, skiing, beach activities; for many people this connection is largely through time spent in their own backyards. Most New Zealanders live in houses of one or two stories with a garden, usually consisting of lawns, flowers, shrubs.
The effect of the implementation of Agenda 21 on lifestyle will be far more dramatic in New Zealand than in Turkey, for example, where even quite small towns consist of apartment buildings. It will also entail the loss of the eco-system provided by the suburban and small-town lifestyle.
For New Zealanders, Agenda 21 means the complete destruction of a way of life that most people see as positive.

From 2015… nevertheless beware
AFRICANGLOBE – About 500,000 Kenyan women may never bear children after being injected with a contaminated tetanus vaccine last year, the Kenyan Catholic Church claims in its final report on the controversial vaccination drive.
Their report cites tests by a joint committee of experts which found that 30 percent of vials from the October vaccination campaign were laced with an anti-pregnancy hormone.
The committee was mandated by Parliament last year when the Church opposed the plans to vaccinate 2.3 million child-bearing women against tetanus.
Yesterday, head of catholic health commission Rev Paul Kariuki said the ministry has pulled out of the committee.
“Thirty percent of the vials collected during the tetanus vaccination campaign sponsored and funded by WHO and Unicef contained HCG,” says the report, which has been produced only by the church-seconded experts.
HCG is the hormone that can be embedded in vaccines to trigger early miscarriage in women.
Rev Kariuki said three of the nine vials tested from last year’s vaccination campaign were confirmed to contain very high levels of the Beta HCG hormone.
“The beta quantity of Beta HCG is highly significant ranging from 24-37.5 per cent,” says Rev Kariuki.

The concept of a one-world government is not new. Winston Churchill said, “The creation of an authoritative world order is the ultimate aim toward which we must strive,”i and Charles De Gaulle was convinced that “Nations must unite in a world government or perish.”ii
Just like the religious unity movement, the world government movement has the underlying purpose of increasing the power of the Papacy. Historian and author Bill Hughes explains:
The Jesuits failed in their attempts to have a world governing body following World War One. They accomplished their sinister goal after World War Two. Following the war, the weary, aching world was conditioned to accept an international government, and the United Nations was born. Since the creation of the United Nations in 1945, this so-called ‘peace-keeping’ body has failed miserably in keeping peace around the world. Why? Because keeping peace is not their purpose, even though they continue to claim that it is. There are presently some 83 different wars around the world. However, it has certainly been instrumental in suppressing liberty loving people. Katanga and Rhodesia are just two examples of nations crushed by U. N. forces. The United Nations has worked tirelessly to restore the temporal power of the papacy — its purpose from the beginning (emphasis added).iii
We can see the signs of this world government strategy that is both political and spiritual:
Modern Humanism, a movement that promotes equality, human rights, and the opinion that “No deity can save us, we must save ourselves,”iv says this in its 1973 Manifesto II:
We deplore the division of humankind on nationalistic grounds. We have reached a turning point in human history where the best option is to transcend the limits of national sovereignty and to move toward the building of a world community…we look to the development of a system of world law and a world order based upon transnational federal government.v
Both public and secret organizations are leading the way toward global government. These organizations include the following:

It’s one of the most under-reported stories of the year, but it is also one of the biggest stories of the year.
In the last week of September, Pope Francis will meet President Obama and then step onto the dais of the UN General Assembly to make a keynote speech on the future of the world.
The event marks three very special occasions. The first is the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the United Nations itself in 1945. The second is the 50th anniversary of the first Pope to address the UN, back on the organisation’s 20th anniversary in 1965. During that visit, Pope Paul VI pledged the loyalty of the Catholic Church to the agenda of the United Nations – effectively making the Church the UN’s servant on Earth.
This time around, one of the most populist popes in modern history is expected to stay on that road as he takes part in the third special occasion – the unveiling of Agenda 2030.
If you’ve heard of Agenda 21, think bigger. Agenda 21 has already been put in place by most local councils in the western world, including New Zealand. If your local officials talk in terms of “smart communities”, “smart growth” or “sustainability” they are using Agenda 21 phrases. Many large corporations across the world have also adopted Agenda 21 principles.
But Agenda 2030 goes even further. Seventeen core goals are being rolled out with full implementation of those goals being set down for 2030 – just 15 years away. To speed up implementation, UN member states – including New Zealand – have been asked to ratify those goals in advance, says the UN website:
“The United Nations General Assembly today approved a resolution sending the draft ‘2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development’ to Member States for adoption later this month, bringing the international community “to the cusp of decisions that can help realize the… dream of a world of peace and dignity for all,” according to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. “Today is the start of a new era. We have travelled a long way together to reach this turning point,” declared Mr. Ban.”
“With world leaders expected to adopt the text at a 25-27 September summit in New York, the UN chief said Agenda 2030 aims high, seeking to put people at the centre of development; foster human well-being, prosperity, peace and justice on a healthy planet and pursue respect for the human rights of all people and gender equality. “It speaks to all people in all countries, and calls for action from everyone everywhere.”
Bill Gates: We Need A One World Government
Billionaire Bill Gates called for “a kind of global government” last month, arguing that the creation of such a system would be needed to combat major issues such as “climate change.”
In a recent interview with the German publication Süddeutsche Zeitung, Bill Gates made some disturbing comments in favor of world government.
Not only did Gates advocate global government, but he also spoke favorably of the UN and NATO, completely overlooking that they are a major force of oppression in the world.
NATO can’t even hold a meeting without thousands of people gathering in the streets to protest their actions. Someone as heavily involved in world affairs as Bill Gates should know all about this.
During the interview last month, Gates said,
Take the UN, it has been created especially for the security in the world. We are ready for war, because we have taken every precaution. We have NATO, we have divisions, jeeps, trained people. But what is with epidemics? How many doctors do we have as much planes, tents, what scientists? If there were such a thing as a world government, we would be better prepared. (emphasis added)
Not long ago this subject was considered a total conspiracy theory, but now one of the richest people in the world is openly suggesting that this is a good idea.
Governments are generally a pretty bad idea; even when they are small they can still do a tremendous amount of damage. So when a government rules the entire planet, there is no telling what type of atrocities it will be capable of.
Aside from his founding of computing giant Microsoft, a corporation which has worked hand in hand with the NSA to eviscerate privacy, Gates’ role in the destruction of health worldwide is made obvious by the companies he invests in.
A breakdown of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s 2012 tax return by Mother Jones reveals billions in funding to corporations such as Coca-Cola, McDonald’s, Burger King and Kentucky Fried Chicken.
Other groups receiving major cash include private prison company the GEO Group Inc., military contractor Dyncorp, a major player in human trafficking, and nearly every top oil company.
A major focus of the Gates Foundation has also been invested in vaccination campaigns, although Western media has completely ignored major ethical issues brought up by medical experts in countries such as India, where more than 47,500 children were paralyzed shortly after one of Gates’ campaigns.
Just last year, India’s Supreme Court began investigating Gates involvement in a vaccine trial that resulted in the deaths of several young girls.
Everything from gun control, Common Core and geoengineering, the practice of spraying toxic particles into the stratosphere to block the sun’s rays, has received millions in funding from Gates.
Gates has also taken heat for investing millions into biotech giant Monsanto, a corporation currently flooding foreign countries with genetically engineered crops.
In reality, the call for global government by Gates and other wealthy elitists has nothing to do with lifting up impoverished nations. Such a government would instead guarantee global surveillance, global wealth inequality and a world run by the exact corrupt interests currently consolidating wealth and power worldwide.
EU countries and cities should follow the example of Belgium and Brussels and halt projects related to 5G high-speed internet development because of potential health risks, Advisors to the International Electromagnetic Field (EMF) Scientist Appeal, an international advocacy group uniting specialists in the field, told Sputnik
MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik – 04th April, 2019) EU countries and cities should follow the example of Belgium and Brussels and halt projects related to 5G high-speed internet development because of potential health risks, Advisors to the International Electromagnetic Field (EMF) Scientist Appeal, an international advocacy group uniting specialists in the field, told Sputnik.
On Monday, The Brussels Times reported that plans for a pilot project to provide 5G wireless internet in the Belgian capital had been halted because of health risk concerns. Environment minister said that such technology could not be welcomed if it did not meet radiation standards, which are rather strict in Brussels region.
“The Advisors have stated that 5G technologies must be subjected to an independent health and safety assessment before they are launched. It is our hope that other cities and nations in the European Union and elsewhere in the world will follow the example set by Brussels, Belgium, and call a halt to the deployment of 5G due to concerns about the potential harm to human health and nature,” Elizabeth Kelley, director of EMF Scientist, said, noting that she replied on behalf of the Advisors to the International EMF Scientist Appeal.
It has already made several appeals to the UN Secretary-General.
“The Advisors to the Appeal believe that, while the science on the biological and health effects related to 5G is limited, there is sufficient scientific evidence to cause concern among independent scientists, that this new infrastructure, on top of existing electrical and wireless infrastructures, will cause more harm to mankind and nature. People who suffer from electrical sensitivity are facing the reality that they may have no place to go that is free from EMF hazards,” Kelley added.
In Europe, plans for a 5G network have been marred by the doubts about Huawei, the Chineseequipment maker, which the United States suspects of potentially being able to spy for Beijing. Unlike the United States, which barred Huawei from government agencies, the European Commission did not go so far as to ban the company. However, it asked member states to submit nation-wide risk assessments. Huawei is now suing the US government over the restrictions.
Notice Planned Parenthood is mentioned. That is the organization under the spotlight for abortion & the trade in body parts. Safe Schools is not what it seems I’ve figured that much from my research. The website describing who was influential in starting Safe Schools was an advocate of sexual love between men & boys. I will find that information and post on it when time permits. That original page has gone from the net now, unfortunately I didn’t save it, so will take a bit of digging.
The United Nations wants to teach our kids, as young as FIVE, masturbation, abortion, gender confusion, homosexuality, contraception, fornication, and more.
The “International technical guidance on sexuality education,” is based on evidence from heavily pro-abortion groups like Planned Parenthood and LGBT advocacy group OutRight Action International.
The UNESCO guidelines Include the following:
5-8yrs: – Learn about ‘non-traditional families.’
Define ‘good touch and bad touch.’
‘Identify a trusted adult and demonstrate how they would ask questions they may have about their feelings and their body.’
‘define gender and biological sex and describe how they are different’
‘reflect on how they feel about their biological sex and gender’
‘identify sources of information about sex and gender’
‘acknowledge that perceptions about sex and gender are influenced by many different sources’
‘Define Gender Based Violence’
‘define child abuse including sexual abuse and online child sexual exploitation’
‘identify ways that men’s, women’s, boys‘, and girls’ bodies are the same; the ways they are different; and how they can change over time’
‘describe the process of reproduction – specifically that a sperm and egg must both join and then implant in the uterus for a pregnancy to begin’
Regarding Sex & Sexuality ‘understand that physical enjoyment and excitement are natural human feelings, and this can involve physical closeness to other people’
‘state that people show love and care for other people in different ways, including kissing, hugging, touching, and sometimes through sexual behaviours’
‘explain that pregnancy and reproduction are natural biological process, and that people can plan when to get pregnant’
9-12yrs: ‘identify examples of how culture, religion and society affect our understanding of sexuality’
‘demonstrate respect for diverse practices related to sexuality’
‘define gender identity’
‘explain how someone’s gender identity may not match their biological sex’
‘acknowledge that everyone has a gender identity
‘appreciate their own gender identity and demonstrate respect for the gender identity of others’
‘describe examples of sexual abuse (including rape, incest and online sexual exploitation)’
‘describe examples of intimate partner violence’
‘express confidence in understanding how the menstrual cycle or ejaculation of sperm happens’
‘describe male and female responses to sexual stimulation (knowledge)
‘state that during puberty boys and girls become more aware of their responses to sexual attraction and stimulation’
‘explain that many boys and girls begin to masturbate during puberty or sometimes earlier’
‘acknowledge that masturbation does not cause physical or emotional harm but should be done in private’
‘compare and contrast advantages and disadvantages of choosing to delay sex or to become sexually active’

This is from the YT channel of AmazingPolly. I like her work. She is well researched. She speaks of the ongoing blather (my term) we’re getting about loss of sovereignty, that is nothing new. The globalist plan since 1945 post WW2 (& prior) rolls on. The loss of national sovereignty was written about back then in a CIA declassified document. Remember also Arnold Toynbee’s statement:
“We are at present working discreetly, with all our might, to wrest this mysterious force called sovereignty out of the clutches of the local nation states of the world. And all the time we are denying with our lips what we are doing with our hands.” Arnold Toynbee – International Affairs, p.809, November 1931

From thenewamerican.com dated 2015, timely given the current ‘address climate change’ emphasis at the Davos Economic Forum where Jacinda is showcasing her ‘wellbeing budget’ (aint that humorous with 43+K homeless since Key landbanked/sold off our state houses to property developers & third highest child poverty in the developed world … among many other negative stats belonging to the hall of shame) … We’ve posted this advisor’s insights previously actually. Another good article here exposing the scam that Al Gore’s theories are. Research it for yourself … they’re full of holes. (There’s a few articles on our climate page). Any climate change (the new term for global warming) we’re seeing today is surely the result of the extensive climate modification that’s been going on for many decades, denied but all well documented, and now being proposed by the likes of David Keith (of ‘free riding on our grandkids’ infamy) as a great method for cooling the planet. One last thought …

Climate Hoax Aimed at New World Order, Says Aussie PM Advisor
The United Nations climate czar and various alarmist media outlets this week sought to dismiss as a “joke” recent comments by a top advisor to Australian leader Tony Abbott on fraudulent man-made global warming theories being used to advance global tyranny. In an explosive column, Maurice Newman, chairman of the Prime Minister’s Business Advisory Council, argued that theories on alleged human-caused climate change were not only bogus, but are serving as the basis for imposing a totalitarian “new world order” on humanity. Despite the uproar among global-warming theorists, UN bureaucrats, and the alarmist press, the evidence suggests Newman is correct.
In the column, published May 8 by The Australian newspaper, Newman begins by blowing the lid off a “well-kept secret” — the climate models purporting to prove that man’s practically irrelevant emissions of carbon dioxide are responsible for catastrophic global warming have been proven wrong. But that is not surprising, he wrote. “We have been subjected to extravagance from climate catastrophists for close to 50 years,” he explained, citing an array of examples of climate fear-mongers and media outlets warning of global cooling and other problems just a few decades ago. The more recent pronouncements of the alarmists are equally ludicrous.
In Australia, prophets of climate doom and gloom have been similarly exposed as quacks, he explained, pointing to a 2005 prediction based on computer models that could not have been more wrong. “We’ve swallowed dud prediction after dud prediction,” Newman observed. “What’s more, the [UN] Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which we were instructed was the gold standard on global warming, has been exposed repeatedly for misrepresentation and shoddy methods.” He also blasted the manipulation of temperature data to suit the alarmist narrative, and NASA’s now-exposed untruths from earlier this year.
If the theories, warnings, and models have been exposed as frauds, Newman wonders rhetorically why the UN would insist on spending hundreds of billions of dollars on “futile climate chance policies.” The answer has already been provided by, among others, UN Foundation boss Timothy Wirth, who declared: “Even if the (climate change) theory is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.” UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) boss Christiana Figueres has also explained it all rather bluntly.
For instance, speaking in Brussels last February, Figueres declared: “This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years since the Industrial Revolution.” More recently, blasting the United States and Americans’ elected representatives for not bowing down, Figueres claimed the ruthless Communist Chinese regime represented the best political model for fighting global warming.
“In other words, the real agenda is concentrated political authority. Global warming is the hook,” Newman explained, echoing the concerns of countless scientists and experts around the world. “This is not about facts or logic. It’s about a new world order under the control of the UN. It is opposed to capitalism and freedom and has made environmental catastrophism a household topic to achieve its objective…. Make no mistake, climate change is a must-win battlefield for authoritarians and fellow travelers.”
Newman noted that, having gained so much ground, the “eco-catastrophists” have no intention of giving up. In fact, at this point, they are backed into a corner, and to admit being wrong would be catastrophic for the establishment’s credibility — not to mention its dreams of a planetary “climate” regime with carbon taxes, wealth redistribution, and more. The totalitarian alarmists have already captured the UN and are “extremely well-funded,” as Newman put it and as a U.S. Senate investigation revealed. They also have a powerful ally in the White House and armies of “compliant academics” and “gullible mainstream media” outlets to push the climate tales regardless of the evidence. They have bribe money extracted from Western taxpayers and promised to UN member regimes for submission to the agenda, too.
But the consequences for humanity will be devastating, with former NASA climatologist Dr. Roy Spencer, for example, warning that the policies pushed by the “global warming Nazis” literally threaten millions of lives. Newman, meanwhile, noted that the “anti-growth policy prescriptions will needlessly prolong poverty, hunger, sickness and illiteracy for the world’s poorest.” The UN’s agenda also threatens free markets, prosperity, liberty, national sovereignty, and more, as The New American has documented extensively.
Despite those very real threats, under the guise of fighting the manufactured threat of man-made global warming catastrophe, Newman said there is a “real chance” that UN climate boss Figueres and “those who share her centralized power ambitions will succeed.” “As the UN’s December climate change conference in Paris approaches, Australia will be pressed to sign even more futile job-destroying climate change treaties,” he continued. “Resisting will be politically difficult. But resist we should. We are already paying an unnecessary social and economic price for empty gestures. Enough is enough.”
Figueres, who opened a recent UN climate summit with a prayer to the Mayan goddess of cannibalism, human sacrifice, and war, dismissed Newman’s concerns as “an attempt at humor.” “I really don’t take it very seriously because it doesn’t respond to the reality or to facts,” she claimed, conveniently ignoring all of the facts presented in Newman’s column. “We live in a world of free press and free opinion and, you know, if that’s the humor in Australia then that’s the humor in Australia … I have my own sense of humor. It’s quite fine.”
Of course, there is nothing funny about foisting a devastating global “climate” regime on humanitybased on discredited computer models.” But for Figueres to address the facts — she said Newman’s comments were “really good fun” — would be to expose the entire UN “climate” agenda as a dangerous attack on humanity, and especially the poor, based on fraudulent “science.” Various Australian politicians also joined the bandwagon attacking Newman’s reputation, but without addressing any of the points he raised.
For years, The New American has also been exposing the UN’s pseudo-science as fraudulent. Top experts from around the world have ridiculed the UN’s “climate models” as embarrassingly wrong— they cannot even accurately model the past, much less the future. Every single UN climate model predicted warming, and yet, for more than 18 years, there has been none. This magazine has also been sounding the alarm about the totalitarian so-called solutions being promoted by global-warming theorists — outlandish attacks on liberty, the poor, national sovereignty, and even mankind itself.
In Australia, at least, voters appear to be catching on, giving a landslide victory to Abbott and his party, which campaigned on killing the carbon tax and reining in global-warming alarmism. In one of the government’s first moves in power, the ruling Conservatives delivered a blunt message to UN alarmists: No more “socialism masquerading as environmentalism.” In a policy paper, Abbott’s Conservatives also publicly refused to sign up for any new contributions, taxes, or charges at the UN global warming summit then underway. In the United States, meanwhile, polls show just 40 percent of Americans agree with the man-made global warming theory.
However, as Newman explained in his column, the UN and the establishment plan to push the climate hysteria hard in the coming months. With the crucial UN global-warming summit in Paris coming up later this year, globalists and alarmists understand that this may be their last chance to successfully shackle humanity to their UN-run “climate” regime. And with the theory imploding on the world stage and the establishment’s credibility on the line — along with its grandiose vision of carbon taxes and “global governance” to fight “global warming” — the attacks on skeptics will become more vicious and deranged. Humanity must stand firm.
There you go, last post here on this, Jacinda was saying she would be consulting us before signing. Winston consulted a lawyer he says. Not the same thing by a very long shot. Done & dusted. Ah but it’s not binding is the sugar coated line to get you all trusting again. I think I recall Winston telling us he would be opposing 1080 aerial drops? Not even. The pact is not binding but watch this space. Like most things pollies dish up to us these days, it will just be the thin end of the proverbial wedge. As usual dished up right on Christmas so we’re all too busy to notice. The end game is UN global governance. Ask Helen Clarke she worked on it for her tenure there. Just another chip in our walls of sovereignty.

And all the time we are denying with our lips what we are doing with our hands.” Arnold Toynbee – International Affairs, p.809, November 1931
I reiterate however, my objection is not about denying immigrants a safe haven, it is about the denial of NZ’s ability to make their own decisions around immigration. Really, their agenda in my humble opinion goes beyond care for the poor and vulnerable. If they cared about those ones we would not currently have 43K+ homeless, (worst in OECD) sleeping in cars & garages or on park benches. Neither would we have had two homeless people die of the cold on park benches in a country where once all were housed. Nor would the other globalist party have sold off thousands of our state homes whilst feigning surprise at the magnitude of our homeless population. No they have another agenda they’re not telling us about.
New Zealand will support the United Nations Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration after receiving legal advice saying it won’t affect national sovereignty.
The Compact is the first “inter-governmentally negotiated agreement prepared under the auspices of the United Nations” that deals with all aspects of international migration.
The agreement, which has been consistently supported by the Green Party, creates non-legally binding conditions for countries to “enable all migrants to enrich our societies through their human, economic and social capacities,” according to the UN.
While the Compact was officially adopted in Marrakesh, Morocco last week, Foreign Affairs Minister Winston Peters has been waiting on legal advice before declaring New Zealand’s support.
“The Government would not support the UN compact if it compromised New Zealand’s sovereignty or could in any way take precedence over our immigration or domestic laws. But the compact does not do that,” said Mr Peters.
“The Crown Law Office and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade have provided legal advice which confirms this UN cooperation framework is neither legally binding nor constraining on this country setting its own migration policies.”
The legal advice said it does not create “customary international law”, “any new human rights law” and “in no way restricts or curtails established human rights, including the right to freedom of speech”.
Mr Peters said the advice was not surprising but did debunk falsehoods and misguided perceptions about the Compact.
Several countries, like Australia and the United States, had earlier pulled out citing concerns about the effect the agreement may have on national sovereignty and nations’ ability to set their own migration and foreign policy.
The National Party has vehemently opposed the agreement and responded to the announcement by saying it would overturn the Government’s support if it gains power.
“Mr Peters has sprung the signing of the Compact on New Zealanders on the last day of Parliament, even though both he and the Prime Minister were this week still claiming no decision had been made. The Compact has been under consideration since February,” said Foreign Affairs spokesperson Todd McClay.
Earlier this month, National leader Simon Bridges said: “There is no automatic right to migrate to another country without that country’s full agreement, a view which the United Nation’s Global Compact on Migration, set to be signed next week, seeks to counter”.
“While not binding, the Compact could restrict the ability of future governments to set immigration and foreign policy, and to decide on which migrants are welcome and which aren’t.”
The decision to develop a compact was first made by UN Member States, including New Zealand, in September 2016. The process towards it began in April 2017, stewarded by representatives from Mexico and Switzerland.
After months of negotiations, the final draft of the agreement was decided upon in July.
“In the end, New Zealand will be voting for a cooperation framework that was clearly set out at the start of the compact’s negotiations process in 2016 when the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants was unanimously adopted by all UN member states, including New Zealand under the previous government,” said Mr Peters.
However, in November, Mr McClay told Newshub that while in government, “We decided against joining the UN Declaration on Refugees and Migration, and declined to attend a forum at the UN on migration.”
Similarly to Mr Peters, the United Nations says that the Declaration received unanimous support. In November, Newshub attempted to clarify National’s supposed opposition to it in 2016, but received no response.
Green Party Foreign Affairs spokesperson Golriz Ghahramn told Newshub signing up to the Compact was extremely important.
“It is paramount that New Zealand, a responsible international citizen, be part of the cooperative solutions initiated by the Compact.”
