Spreely is another 1st amendment Free speech platform.
I watched an online advert and it looks very promising.
As Facebook continues to crank up their Thought control, remaining here becomes less and less tenable.
Giving Facebook our custom becomes more and more immoral.
We sacrifice a portion of our own integrity by association with these vile anti-freedom corporations.
Groups that oppose The Globalist narrative need to set up an alternative presence on other platforms as many of their members will have their personal pages here on FB shut down. Unless we use some foresight and prepare, groups that advocate for Truths and values at variance with the Globalist agenda will be silenced because they failed to realise they left themselves completely under the power of The Globalists social media giants.
We simply must have a plan B ready.
I belong to a whole bunch of different special interest facebook groups and they are one of the big reasons I am reluctant to voluntarily abandon facebook.
One such group is called New Zealand Bikers.
Like so many groups they try to avoid ‘Politics’ and ‘Religion’ yet despite this these groups are inextricably bound and seriously affected by Facebooks Political agenda.
They may go to extreme lengths to distance themselves from the divisive angst of partisan Politics and yet this is a forlorn hope… a delusion.
The Truth is Totalitarian politics permetes almost every aspect of our lives,,, invading Freedom and our personal space in ways in which we have less and less say.
I know many Bikers here have no interest in politics yet that does not mean Politics has no interest in Bikers… and in controlling what they do and think.
Freedom is in grave danger and this should concern everyone.
Not only does facebook now demand Group Admins punish members who post things Facebook disapproves of, groups like New Zealand Bikers are in danger of unconsciously becoming tools of the oppressive State rather than a place where Biker Culture advocacy against oppressively laws can happen as the Freedom Activists among such groups get ‘weeded out’ by Facebook censorship.
This will mean such groups like this will start to only hear opinions that conform to what those in power want.
If you wonder where some of the most passionate voices against oppressive laws and taxes in your groups just ‘Disappear’ it is highly likely they have been ‘eliminated’ by the Facebook Thought Police.
Of Course many of the sheeple will celebrate such pesky contrary souls have been exterminated.
Groups that cater to ‘fringe dwelling cultures’ that don’t fit well with ‘Politically Correct’ ideology are most at threat, and these are the groups that need to seriously consider finding a more freedom respecting platform.
Facebook is fast becoming a suffocating Left wing cesspool of ignorance and conformity.
I posted these comments to New Zealand Bikers and got several likes… I also got a lot of whinging and some Tinfoil hat Gifs.
The post then got axed by the admins….
‘Let he that hath an ear to hear… let them hear’… everyone else just does not want to know.
Update 31-12-20 It appears I have now been Banned from New Zealand Bikers… without notice.
Who needs to worry about the Facebook Gestapo when the sheeple Gestapo each other!
When even the Biker communities are Banning people for promoting Freedom you know free speech is in real trouble!
We need to develop habits of using these other platforms because we will be picked off one by one if we dare to share opinions that the Globalists have flagged as ‘Wrong think’.
Otherwise… if you *censor yourself* out of fear of being axed… you have been castrated by the enemies of Freedom and become a vanquished and subjugated adversary of the Tyrants… and as useful as Tits on a Bull to the cause of Freedom.
Only if you are brave and prepared to risk loosing your Facebook pages will you remain undefeated and a worthy Freedom advocate.
I am mentally preparing myself to either be axed… or simply to leave.
As I am not Tek savvy this transition will not be easy for me… yet it must be done.
The only real sadness this brings me is that so many of my Family and Friends, and Freedom fighting associates do not seem to care about the fact that when I leave… we will no longer be in contact daily because they cant be bothered setting up on another Social media site that respects Liberty.
‘Tim Wikiriwhi’ has already been Ghosted off Facebook and Instagram, and is currently only there via an alternate pseudonym, yet I will be very surprised if I am still on Facebook at all by the end of 2021.
If ‘Jim’ disappears without saying goodbye you can be certain ‘he’ has been ‘liquidated’… and for me that will signal the end of my subjection to the Soul sucking Zuck.
I have a MeWe account and a Parler account, and I am going to take a look at this ‘Spreely’ site too.
I will endeavor to use Bitchute rather than Youtube as much as possible, and other search engines rather than Google.
This has to be a conscious decision made for ethical and pragmatic reasons.
And in the meantime we must resist self-censorship to remain effective voices for Truth and Freedom.
With regard to the up and coming referendum on the right to assisted death for the terminally ill, and to politics in general, a fundamental question asked by Libertarians is Who owns your life?
Answer: You do! Not society.
Upon that basis I believe a Yes vote for the right to assisted dying for the terminally ill is the moral vote because it is the only consistent position with the principle that (politically speaking) *you own yourself*.
Otherwise you become the slave/ property of society.
The above statement is clear cut, yet not without controversy.
The ‘No’ voters think this reform erodes the sanctity of Human life. So argues the New Conservative party.
I say it does the very opposite thing.
It removes power from the State and gives it back to individuals to make their own choices.
I myself am both a Libertarian, and a Christian, yet many Christians will not be able to reconcile my ‘Yes vote’ with how they interpret ‘Christian values’, and in fact many people… both believers and infidels can’t imagine how Christianity and Libertarianism can be coherently united and consistent in application.
More on these nuances later, first of all I want to talk about the curious mental gymnastics I am forced to engage in this election whereby my votes on both referendums will be in conflict with the expressed policies of the political party I have decided to support. New Conservatives.
I forgive people for this default starting assumption.
Hopefully those of you who find my decisions incredulous will take the trouble to read this post whereby I will do my best to extricate myself from being written off as a nutbar.
I know that my choices will win few friends, and will more likely annoy any I already have because splitting my votes will tend to draw the ire and consternation of *all camps*.
Nonetheless this is the course I am choosing to navigate.
We here in New Zealand live in chaotic times politically speaking, and the two referenda being run in unison with the national elections are two highly polarising subjects… which is why they have become referenda as neither of the two large parties have the Nads to legislate these reforms, or run with them as election policies.
The assisted dying referendum for the terminally ill has come about because of a bill presented to parliament by Act Leader David Seymour.
I will be supporting Seymour’s reform, yet I won’t be giving Act my party vote.
Even though Act have never been a great party, deciding not to vote Act this election was not an easy decision to make, as what other party even remotely represents my essential values?
On several key matters of personal freedom David Seymour had stood head and shoulders above the rest of parliament in how he conducted himself this election cycle, with respect to the issues of free Speech, and his opposition to the shameful way the new Firearms prohibitions were enacted.
In the light of these noble actions I was definitely leaning towards giving Act my vote and encouraging others to do the same, yet as time progressed, Seymour’s virtues became overshadowed by other unconscionable actions he would proceed to commit which have undermined my support.
With regards to the new abortion Legislation he not only supported late term abortions but also failed to vote for a proposed amendment that would have defended the rights of babies born alive after botched Abortions to receive medical aid rather than being neglected to die.
The whole basis of the pro-abortion arguments are that a woman is sovereign over her own body and the government has no authority to dictate what she does within her own body… yet once a baby has in fact been born… is *outside* the woman’s body, then they ought to have the full rights of an independent human being!
I consider these failings by David Seymour to be morally reprehensible.
And how disgusting that such laws were passed under a parliament led by a Woke PM who claims she entered politics ‘For the Children’!!!!
Seymour is fully complicit in this foul business.
I was also disgusted with the way he treated some of his most loyal candidates with regards to this elections Act party list, and I have always disliked what I see as a general lack of spine on some of the most important social issues facing our Nation such as ending the Race based seats in parliament, and his support for the UN Global compact on migration.
These are not attributes of a leader I can endorse.
In the not too distant past voting for me was a far less convoluted enterprise.
During the first decade of this new Millennium voting was relatively easy because New Zealand had a vibrant Libertarian Party for whom I could cast my vote with confidence, and for many elections in the second decade, I stood as a Libertarian Independent, and so obviously I at least knew which candidate I would support.. yet the question of where to place my party vote has never been an easy decision since the Libertarianz Party disbanded.
It is a matter of political folklore that the Act Party are a ‘Libertarian party’, yet this is to the largest extent a myth.
A myth that is mostly to the detriment of Libertarianism.
Politics in New Zealand truly is a confounding mess and almost madness to try and untangle… which causes many not to bother trying.
Act may have been founded with the aid of some Libertarian minded people, yet there were also many Ex Labour Party Neo-liberal Bigwigs like Roger Douglas and Richard Prebble, and so instead of advocating any Libertarian social reforms, Act quickly became a Crony Capitalist/’National Socialist party’ that supported some Free market Economics, yet maintained Welfare State socialism with regards to virtually everything else.
Take a look at the picture (above) that exposes how far the National party have drifted from their original charter!
If only they had remained true to their original aspirations upon which they were founded!
Act became the most Right Wing party of New Zealand.. to the right of National.. a lobby to bludgeon Left wing heavy Taxation Anti-Business ambitions of Labor and their more radical minions yet despite lofty rhetoric Act absolutely failed to stand for any reforms on individual liberty.
This has remained the case throughout their history perhaps with the one exception during the party leadership by the Great New Zealander Don Brash.
It was under Brash that Act came anywhere near a forthright stand on any law reform that was a matter of personal freedom, when Brash came out on TV in favour of ending cannabis prohibition.
His party associates like John Banks nearly had a heart attack!
Brash stint with Act was short, and any mention of Cannabis law reform left when he did.
Act has always and only played lip service to being the party of small government and personal freedom.
This is because apart from Brash the Party has been run by a bunch of Ball-less wonders.
The most disappointing for me was Jamie Whyte… because of all of them he knew better.
Most of them put money matters above personal liberty and social justice.
Act are not Nazis, yet their party is part way down a continuum at the end of which is full blown fascism.
Labour are not Communists, yet their party is well down the continuum at the end of which stands full blown Communism. Today under Ardern their policies and loyalties lie not with the interests of New Zealanders but with UN Socialist Globalism.
By labeling Act as ‘Libertarian’ the leftist media managed to confound Libertarianism with being Far right.
This is disgraceful slander.
Libertarianism is fundamentally different to every other political ideology.
Act’s alignment with *Fascism* rather than true capitalism and Freedom, is why the True Libertarians who initially helped found Act, quickly realised what was afoot and jumped ship.
They formed their own genuine Libertarian party, and so Act became just another Party against whom the Libertarianz party had to cross swords.
For more than a decade the Libertarianz Party fought valiantly for Individual liberty and rights against ever expanding Government encroachment, yet sadly after years of courageous activism they were forced to throw in the towel from lack of traction and financial support.
MMp’s 5% mark to get an MP into parliament is in my opinion far too high, and represents a barrier to breaking the stranglehold the two major parties enjoy.
The Political playing field is also heavily tilted in favour of maintaining the status quo, and New Zealanders themselves are heavily conditioned to their chains.
The Libertarianz party could not sustain itself against the overwhelming odds.
Freedom lovers failed to rally under their noble banner from a delusion of ‘wasting their votes’.
Well… I ask… where did casting your votes for other parties get our Nation?
Because New Zealanders did not heed the Libertarians on their Soap boxes, and rally behind them is why our nation now experiences the dawning of an era of Tyranny!
I implore Freedom lovers to not make the same mistake!
Stop voting for the very parties that have abandoned our values and taken our nation towards complete enslavement!
The demise of the Libertarianz Party spelled the end of New Zealanders clear choice between Freedom and various levels of Tyranny.
Between Justice and various levels of oppression.
Between fairness in economics vs heavy Political obstacles.
Libertarian minded New Zealanders were cast adrift… forced to swim about in a stinking cesspool, looking for the best place to put their democratic votes.
The political climate and darkened mentality of our times have made this a very dirty business.
Most of the wares on offer by todays mongers are of dubious quality.
The Libertarian pines over his ale, looking out upon a scene of chaos, confusion, and mayhem.
Is there any hope to be found?
The question of which political parties (if any) should the Libertarian now give their vote is a highly troublesome dilemma, as at a glance there appear only shades of grey tending towards complete blackness.
It is very difficult to determine whether *any* of the parties standing ought to be supported.
The closest way to describe what voting now entails for a Kiwi Libertarian is to liken the decision making process to solving a bunch of ‘Trolley Problems’ that will be familiar to those who have to some degree studied moral philosophy.
‘The trolley problems’ are designed to highlight the many complexities involved in dealing with moral dilemmas in which *means and ends* are far from ideal.
Solution tends towards making pragmatic determinations hoping for the best outcomes attainable via the least repugnant means… for the overall sake of committing the lesser Evil.
The trouble is the lesser evil is still evil.
Wikipedia discussion on Trolley problems can be found here
There is no space here or sense in attempting to fully articulate the conundrums involved. It must suffice to say this is an abhorrent ‘game’ for any Idealist to be forced to play, and being independent thinkers, the once united Libertarians have now fragmented… going their own ways… as each individual makes their own determinations as to how to solve the set of trolley problems presented to them at election time. This election is particularly significant as we also must vote on the two referenda.
In truth the most moral of men and woman, and the greatest leaders of history have had to face frightful moral dilemmas, and most of them have had to carry the weight of harsh criticism for the decisions they made from lesser mortals who would have been stupefied and paralyzed had they themselves been faced with the same crisis.
To shrink from tuff calls is symptomatic of Moral weakness.
One day we all will stand before our Maker and give account of ourselves, and it is He who shall determine the virtue of those who made tuff calls.
Two examples might be the decision to use the Atom bomb on Japan in 1945, another might be Churchill’s decision to ally with Stalin for the sake of defeating Hitler.
Both of these involve weighty moral dilemmas that provoke strong criticism to this day.
Given today’s circumstances I know a few Ex Libertarianz party members who today throw up their hands in disgust… and refuse to vote… the irony is that not voting… *is their vote*… to do nothing.
In the perspective of the Trolley problems not voting is the equivalent of never choosing to throw the lever… not intervening at all to try and mitigate any crisis that is unfolding, and allowing things to take their course… no matter how horrendous the result of their inaction might be, or how things could have turned out had they been brave enough to reach for the switch.
Most of us have heard the saying “Evil prevails when good men do nothing”.
For me *to automatically* determine to ‘do nothing’ is no escape from moral culpability in what ensues, it is in fact an abdication of moral duty… a most heinous moral failing… maybe the worst of them all!
Bible Theologians would call this ‘The sin of Omission’… and one example of this in the Bible is told by Jesus when asked about the moral duty to ‘love thy neighbour as thyself’.
He spoke of the predicament of the man who was beaten and robbed, yet the ‘Religious Jew’ walked past him without giving him any aid. It was only when the Good Samaritan came along that the man received care.
By doing nothing The Religious Jew was deemed to be wicked, and so *automatic inaction* cannot be the moral position…if there exists at all any plausible means of steering things towards a more desirable outcome without committing unconscionable evils in the process. ‘Not Voting’ cannot absolve a person from the resulting evils his inaction inevitably entails.
It’s like walking past our sick and dying country on the other side of the road as if it’s not your problem, rather than inconveniencing yourself and getting your hands dirty.
The reality is that though no registered political Party standing in October 17 is fundamentally a Libertarian party, there is still a broad range of parties standing and the fact is it still makes a massive difference which ones manage to get their hands on the levers of Power.
Lives are at stake!
Freedom is at stake!
Quality of life is at stake!
Our Children’s futures are at stake!
New Conservative candidate for Hamilton West Rudy du Plooy.
When I survey the Political landscape, despite the absence of a Libertarian party, judged by their policies and election campaigns certain parties do stand out as vastly superior to either National or Labour.
Some are worse, such as the Greens, and The Maori Party.
Some are no better such as NZ First, Top.
Many ex Libertarianz will be voting for Act, yet personally speaking of the two parties that most clearly articulate principles, and values that I considered honorable, it is the New Conservatives who come out on top.
Their forthright defense of Free speech.
Their rejection of 1080.
Repeal all the new and hastily enacted Firearms prohibitions created in the wake of the Christchurch terrorist attack.
Their defense of National sovereignty in opposition to UN Globalist slavery.
Their rejection of Ardern’s Covid 19 ‘elimination strategy, Lockdowns, and their absolute rejection of compulsory vaccinations.
No to carbon taxes, first 20k of income tax free.
Their rejection of ‘Transgender indoctrination’ in schools against parents wishes.
Their rejection of the UN Global compact on migration, etc all these clearly stated policies mean New Conservatives trump the Act Party by a country mile, and that is why I will be giving them my party vote, and having had a coffee with their Hamilton West candidate Rudy du Plooy last week I will also be giving him my candidate vote.
It is fitting that here I discuss one of NC’s most important policies, and examples of their party’s integrity and courage and that is their forthright call for the end of Treaty separatism and the race based seats in parliament.
Rudy is an immigrant from South Africa and so he has experienced the evils of Apartheid and appreciates just how violent and unjust Racist politics and bigotry can become.
That is why his party is calling for racial equality before the law.
The Treatment of White South Africans currently going on over there is appalling! Yet not a peep is raised about it by our Woke PM Ardern… because ultimately socialists like her support the oppression of White people.
Many of her own policies are heavily prejudiced against Pakeha New Zealanders, and for all her talk about humanitarian migration, she remains silent in opening New Zealand’s doors to help more oppressed white South Africans… because they are white.
This too despite the fact that White South Africans integrate well into our society as they share common traditional values… yet these are the very values socialists like her are determined to destroy.
Statistically speaking Ardern wants Less white people in New Zealand, and she can turn a blind eye to the fate of white farmers there under the contemptible socialist bromide that they are paying the dues of the white race for the past apartheid regime.
By Socialist math two wrongs do make a right.
Hence Ardern has little conscience about supporting Racist legislations under the pretense of ‘De-colonising’ New Zealand.
In New Plymouth which is a hot bed of Radical Maori separatist activism the NC candidate Murry Chong has heroically weathered a Tempest of outrage for his forthright stand against attempts to further entrench fraudulent Waitangi Apartheid and Treaty partnership doctrines and institutions there. He has suffered the most skewed press that mischaracterised his defense of Racial equality as ‘Opposition to Maori Representation’… which is a complete lie.
What he and his fellow New Conservatives oppose is the ongoing creation of special seats of power whereby Iwi can extort the rest of the people perpetually… as if they have more rights than everyone else.
They seek to rid our nation of such corrupt politics, and when the Maori seats and the rest of the apartheid institutions are abolished, He understands that Maori rights will still be protected by the Law in common with everyone else. Maori will still be able to stand of Parliament and Council, only to do so they will have to campaign before the entire community which will cut off the truly *racist radicals* for ever attaining office because their nasty bigoted views and ambitions will never fly with the whole of the people… and that is how a democracy is supposed to function!
The Racist radicals know that should apartheid politics be brought to an end… so too will their ability to extort unearned and undeserved wealth and privilege be broken.
So many New Zealanders have completely forgotten the most important fundamentals of justice and good government!
The New Conservatives have candidates in every electorate including the Maori seats.
Personally I don’t think it was the right thing to stand in those electorates, yet having said that I appreciate the Nads it takes to do so.
Their candidates in the Maori electorates will face heavy angst from many Maori who have been brainwashed into thinking their party policy to abolish the race based electoral system is a demonstration of anti-Maori bigotry. They will face threats. Yet should they maintain their composure and speak truth with eloquence they will be able to present their case with love.
Truth and principle, and Righteousness are on their side!
You know The New Conservatives are the party that threaten Left wing Radical socialism as no other party is enduring the hate and violence as they are…
I salute all NC candidates for their bravery… The one-eyed mainstream media takes no more pleasure than to pillory the small parties and their candidates who bravely challenge the ‘norms’ of the status quo.
Act’s David Seymour in private professes that the race based system is corrupt and ruining our country yet does not have the balls to say so in public at election time.
That is cowardly. That is unprincipled scheming, and demonstrates the sort of Game playing politician he really is.
How is he any different for the scoundrel Winston Peters who betrayed his supporters last election with regards to making the abolishment of the race-based seats a bottom line for coalition talks?
Sadly… when you dig deep down… despite many good things David has done… he and Winston are not as different as he likes to think.
He too is a game player.
The Leftist radicals of Labour, the Greens, and the Maori Party demonstrate their absolute disregard for fair elections in that they have implemented a strategy of destroying New Conservative election bill boards all about the country… despite their own parties getting far more Taxpayer loot to fund their own campaigns!
Like I said earlier about the struggles of the Libertarianz Party before them… New Zealand elections are far from fair… far for being fought on a level playing field, and so The New Conservatives face an uphill battle against dirty political tactics at every step.
I urge every New Zealander who is alarmed at our headlong plunge into tyranny under Jacinda Ardern to get behind the brave and principled New Conservative party!
If 5% of us do… they will be in parliament and possibly even be included in a coalition government, most likely with National and Act.
This would position them well to lever National into making concessions in alignment with our Values and principles… away from the direction Ardern has carried us.
These are good people who hold to the traditional values that made New Zealand a great and prosperous place to live.
They care about all New Zealanders.
I attended a public meeting a few months back in Te Awamutu where I heard several candidates speak, including the party’s passionate and compassionate deputy, Elliot Ikilei.
He spoke very well, and I was particularly impressed with his insights into the many social conditions that are common for troubled youth that play a large role in such important issues in Maori criminality.
He articulated that from his experience working in this field that all the separatist rhetoric about Maori crime statistics as being evidence of systemic oppression of Maori from colonisation are absolutely false!
Instead he argued that the main driver of Maori criminality was broken homes and a lack of a Father in the house, and thus all the ‘positive discrimination’ going on in the name of ‘closing the gaps’ between Maori and the rest of the country absolutely miss the fundamental issues.
He described how the institution of the Domestic Purposes benefit *was devastating for Maori* because that was corrosive to maintaining families, promoted single parent-ism, and it’s institution correlates perfectly with the exponential growth of Maori dependence on welfare and Broken homes.
Thus Elliot understands that socialism is a dangerous trap!
I myself also know Maori must take ownership of their own violence and substance abuse… these are not evils that can be justly blamed on their Pakeha neighbours but represent the ugly truth of a serious lack of wholesome values that are requisite in having happy homes and personal prosperity in a free and modern society.
Maori need to cut with the shameful blame, and take more ownership of their own mess!
I like the New Conservative party very much.
They have their hearts in the right place.
They offer real and much needed alternatives.
None of them appear to me to be in politics for powers sake, yet they are not perfect.
They have many policies and values I myself hold dear, yet I know they are not a consistent Libertarian party.
They are Democrats… with all the weakness that entails.’
This being so I see great opportunity for improvement, and given the chance I would like to engage in healthy dialogue to see if they are open to reasonable challenge on some of their policies which I do not endorse.
I have already mentioned that I will be voting yes for the right to assisted dying.
This is at variance with the New Conservatives.
Maybe sometime soon I will write a blogpost explaining in more detail why I believe they are wrong to oppose this legal reform, yet because this current post is already insanely long, I want to finish by discussing the New Conservative policy of Citizens Binding Referenda and my intention to vote ‘yes’ for Cannabis law reform in the forthcoming referenda which is again against the expressed policy of the New Conservatives.
At the Te Awamutu meeting my friend and fellow Libertarian Robin Thomsen and I introduced ourselves to Elliot and engaged in a short conversation.
Elliot was happy to talk and spoke candidly.
After a few other subjects I broached the topic of the Cannabis Referendum and asked what his party would do should they succeed in getting into parliament, yet also the people of New Zealand vote for Cannabis legalisation?
He said his party would honor that result despite it being contrary to their own policy and hopes.
That answer was consistent with their policy of citizens binding referenda and demonstrates integrity to that political school of thought despite the result going against their own opinions as to what is best for the country.
As far as ending the war on cannabis being ‘bad’ for New Zealand I emphatically reject that position.
This is a topic I have involved myself for many years having experienced first hand the injustice of criminalising cannabis users, and understand the manifold other detrimental effects these bad laws have on our society. I have been an activist for reform for over 30 years, and in fact it was activism to ‘Free the weed’ that was my first foray into politics trying to fix a broke system.
I would jump from hedge to hedge… covertly distributing ‘NORML’ Pamphlets in Tauranga letterboxes in the dead of night.
I knew the difference between dishonesty and violence, from peacefully enjoying a doobie with friends in my own home… I knew I was being oppressed and that the Law needed to be changed.
I will post links to other Blogposts on this subject below.
The point I wish to finish on, and one I hope the New Conservatives are open to reconsider is the weird way in which they promote binding Citizens referenda in the face of knowing it is just as likely for the majority of people to vote for laws they believe to be *Bad* as it is for good… and I am using the Cannabis referenda as an example.
Is it not apparent to them that *Mob Rule* is no guarantee of Good law or justice?
I see their policy on binding referenda as their Achilles heel.
It’s a policy that actually undermines the *Real foundations of Just Law* which are the Objective principles of Justice such as personal sovereignty, and equality before the Law… and that just government has strictly limited authority over the lives of citizens, the impartial enforcement of legally binding contracts, and limited powers over only such matters pertaining to the defense of rights.
The terms and condition upon which Government is founded, and limits of it’s powers ought to be embodied in a constitution with an iron clad bill of rights upon which democratically elected Parliaments have no authority to encroach.
This is a million miles away from having a system of Mob rule… open ended social arbitrary Law whereby the greatest mob get their way.
Under such a system there is no protection for Individuals or minorities, and the Masses are notorious for being easily duped and manipulated by Charismatic demagogues.
I have much to say on these matters, and it would be my pleasure to open a dialogue with the New Conservatives about these vital political truths.
Now remember the moral dilemmas of the Trolley problems and the uncomfortable reality of having to make choices under circumstances less than ideal, via means that are less than ideal, and which also probably will result… no matter what decision is made in ends that are less than ideal?
My decision to vote ‘Yes’ on the Act Party’s Right to assisted death for the terminally ill referendum, and ‘Yes’ on the Green Party’s Cannabis Law reform Referendum, and also ‘yes’ for the New Conservative party this election are each individual decisions I have arrived at as being the most moral, and just choices available to voters this election.
I am being compelled to make compromises, and there is always an element of risk, yet ultimately from my best evaluations all these choices are the most consistent with my Christian Libertarian values and ideals.
Such is the human condition and predicament.
I don’t pretend my choices are not open to critisism… such is the nature of moral dilemma.
I hope this blogpost is instrumental in winning support for the New Conservatives from Liberty lovers, Free thinkers, and all who are concerned about the Free fall of our country into socialist tyranny.
I believe they will reach 5% if enough of us resolve to give them our support.
They deserve it.
Our Country desperately needs to steer a new course to get back to the freedom and Values we enjoyed not too many years ago before the likes of Ardern came to power.
She is turning our Nation into a Police State!
Facebook is free…. That’s the great lie… its a trap that has captured the whole of Western Democracy.
The only part about it that was free was signing up.
Maybe the first shot of heroin an addict ever gets is free.
Facebook is free as long as you conform to their narrow views… on everything… and surrender your data, photos, privacy, time, allow the government to propagandise on your posts, etc.
The most frightening thing about Facebook is it’s reach.
It operates as a virtual monopoly which of itself would not be a problem if it upheld fairness and impartiality, and defended freedom of expression, yet instead it functions in the complete opposite manor.
It is heavily biased, unfair and discriminatory, and thus serves to further specific partisan political ideologies curtailing open debate and critisism of the Politically correct narratives and policies of Socialist Globalism.
And this heavy bias suits socialist governments like ours here in New Zealand… infested with Leftist devotees to the New World Order… as with all the others about the globe, France, Canada, many States in the US, etc.
This heavily skewed media monstrosity has become a threat to the freedom of humanity.
As one of the internet giants run by Liberal elites Facebook has been deplatforming many of the worlds most popular and vocal critics of Leftist liberal globalism, yet these newsworthy acts of partisan censorship are merely the visible portion of the censorship iceberg, as Facebook has invested heavily in AI tech that filters every word… every photo of even the least significant activist or critic.
They employ an army of ‘Woke Community Standards’ commissars who investigate Reprobates whom have been dobbed in by the legions of leftist minions who report any commentary they find ‘offensive’ to their own tastes.
They have a check list of ‘Identity politics’, and woke agendas that they use to monitor their fellow citizens to insure they all stay in line.
All done under the guise of protecting ‘vulnerable minorities’ and fighting ‘fake news’ etc etc, yet equating to censorship of any opinions that call the validity of the many woke agendas into question.
Facebook’s dragnet captures thousands of lesser caliber yet still ardent vocal dissidents and activists who refuse to allow Leftist globalism and all their woke ideologies to go unchallenged.
This mass rounding up and suppression of the active little voices embedded in every community who have virtually no redress must surely constitute a serious violation of the principles of democratic freedom of speech.
Not to be cowered into silence, I have at all times refused to self-censor for my own sake, instead I have remained vocal on all points, yet as predicted, a month before the New Zealand General Election in which Jacinda Ardern is hoping for re-election I have been thrown in Facebook jail… effectively removing my ability to electioneer against Ardern and for the alternative parties and policies I believe are preferable.
They have ghosted my profile page and *all my commentary* of the past 10 years.
How many other vocal Kiwi Critics have also conveniently been ghosted at this critical time?
There is no way for us to know.
This is election rigging.
My sphere of influence is not great… probably less than a few dozen like-minded friends.
Some of my Facebook pages have up to 3500 followers, yet how many people really give a damn that I, Tim Wikiriwhi or a few dozen other ‘fringe’ Kiwi thinkers are gone at this critical point in the election cycle?
Oblivious to the fact that Rome is burning, Most people dont give a toss we vigilant critics are silenced because they are *part of the great herd*.
By their math everything is fine… they dismiss our contrary views as not adding any value to the political dialogue.
Most of them *applaud this censorship* because they don’t like their complicity and complacency being called out by pesky Gad flies like myself… and there is every probability that I have been banned because some ‘hater’ took offence to one of my truth bombs and reported me to the Woke Gestapo.
Ironically many of these same Groupthinkers also like to posture themselves as defenders of ‘oppressed minorities’, all the while endorsing trampling underfoot the minority of free thinkers who call their Groupthink into question.
The one unforgivable vice is to disagree or question *their ideological perceptions about how the world works.*
So the great herd gives zero fucks about free speech or fair elections because these are the sheep who *always* vote for the continued entrenchment of the powers that be.
Heavy Regulation of the Internet is creating a hive mind.
I am sure a hockey stick equation could express this process.
We could graph the loss of individuality and freedom.
This does not bode well for reform or for the quality of life for our children.
Articles like this one … ‘NZ’s new internet laws – sensible censorship?‘ absolutely fail to highlight the *fundamental anti-free speech modus opperadi of Globalist liberalism*.
It talks about the possibility of Internet censorship legislative powers being usurped by government for their own political ends as if that was something highly unlikely instead of truly expounding the very real threat: The globalists expressed determination to utterly end Internet freedom and instead use internet domination as a means of mass indoctrination for their own political ends.
I have been thrown in Facebook jail many times, each time my sentence increasing in length, yet this Facebook lag is different.
This time I assume will be for 90 days. I may get out… maybe… yet well after the general election and period of coalition talks.
The reason I don’t know if I will ever have my page back or when is because when I was notified by facebook I could no longer use my page they did not state the term of my imprisonment, only that I could ‘appeal’ by clicking on the tab.
When I did this another window opened in which they wanted ‘ID validation’, I entered my Cell phone number and received a code to populate a box.
Next they asked me for a Photo… it was then that I realised I was being asked to voluntarily populate their AI systems with my personal Data which they could deem as being authenticated.
I realise I had just been duped into giving them my cellphone number which acts as a personal GPS Tracker. (yet another invasion of personal privacy the whole world has blindly accepted as the new normal and the price for being plugged into the Matrix)
Step by imperceptible step… then by leaps and bounds… we give way to the machine.
Buggered if I was going to voluntarily give The Beast/ Facebook a certified photo by which they (and the powers that be) can use to calibrate their facial recognition systems.. FFS all I want to do is use the internet like an ordinary (yet Free) person… not sign up to some sort of Cult whereby I surrender all my personal independence and dignity!
(So many people will willingly allow a computer chip to be implanted into their right hands or foreheads… just for the sake of convenience of not having to carry a wallet or remember PIN numbers!… this is where all this sheepish submission to the Godless machine leads!)
For Shits and Giggles I submitted a picture of Jacinda Ardern… rejected.
Then one of Winston Peters…. rejected… then one of the Joker…. rejected.
It does not take a rocket scientist to infer they already are pretty sure about what I look like and that their AI was scanning for a pic with the correct faceprint dimensions.
There is in fact no justification for such a request… except that this will become part of the ‘New Normal’ here in New Zealand… as it has become in Totalitarian China.
I believe they wanted an authorized/validated image that enhanced their system to make ‘legally admissible’/ evidential determinations about my internet activity that could be used to prosecute me in the future on any number of fronts whereby I have made criticisms of Government programs, agendas, etc… whether it be sharing posts critical of Covid 19 lockdowns, promoted the use of hydroxychloroquine or vitamins to fight the Rona, spread videos of Police brutality, condemned ongoing Racist Treaty separatism, etc.
Facial recognition software is not new… but what is disturbing about all this is when you think about how ‘China-like’ New Zealand is rapidly becoming in the wake of the Christchurch Terror attack, and Covid 19.
The Socialist Globalists never let a good crisis go to waste… in fact they have become very artful in making mountains out of molehills…. the sheeple are easily spooked.
New reports tell us the NZ Police are investing in Facial recognition tek… without any public consent process.
New Zealanders protesting against Ardern’s Covid19 lockdowns report intimidation by special Police drones filming them all… just like The Chinese Communist Party did to the Pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong before the mass arrests of dissidents.
And we should not forget Jacinda Ardern’s own ‘Christchurch call’… to fully control social media, live streaming, hate speech, etc etc etc… whereby the government has been quietly setting up systems to monitor social media and crush any opinions they dont like.
The Covid 19 Mass information strategy dovetails nicely with all of these Orwellian powers… for the sheeples own good (PUKE!)
In the recent past the Police only collected photographs and fingerprints of suspects, and criminals… Law abiding people had the right to ‘privacy in their person’… they could not be randomly stopped, searched and asked for ID’s, photographed, etc… by the police… yet slowly… step by step the sheeple allowed creeping intrusive encroachments into their private sphere… under the guise of being ‘Good citizens’… and the ruse that ‘you have nothing to fear if you have nothing to hide…’ yet what they did not realise is that they were giving the State the ability to create ‘Henrich Himmler type files’… on everyone… to be used by the state for whatever political purposes the Overlords desire!
That is what happens when the state is ‘allowed’ to collect data on all citizens, rather than only those who are involved in criminal activities.
I decided rather than submit a definitively athorised Photo ID into their system, I would forfeit my right of appeal as not only was there virtually no chance of my appeal being successful, I also refuse to genuflect to their Machine… and voluntarily feed and empower their evil system.
This will potentially cost me a lot… not only will I loose contact with many friends and family, but Facebook have censored my entire Social media commentary for the past 10 years… with the flick of a switch.
It is a great loss because I foolishly allowed Facebook to have such power by only publishing many of my thoughts and arguments on their site.
Threatened with such heavy personal costs for resistance, many people will surrender to the machine rather than risk such a great personal loss… and this is the trap and the power Facebook now has over a Billion souls.
This is where the powers that control the internet are taking the whole world. All the mindless sheeple of our age don’t see anything wrong with it… in fact this is ‘The new normal’… and it has been heading in this direction slowly and surely for at least the past few decades… literally everything… Job applications, shopping, banking, all are done impersonally via clicking tabs and filling out fields in a database. At the end you are allocated a number.
99% of the time this is all good. Nothing sinister.
Ordering a pizza has never been easier, yet this ‘new normal’ has a darker side… It is socially conditioning us all… from the age of 3… to blindly ‘trust’ the Machine… to Obey the Machine… to submit to the machine… and to view those who *dont like this new way of doing things* as being crack pots.
Most people have become oblivious to the fact that in the stratosphere high above the machine is controlled by powerful vested interests… the game Admins… the Puppet Masters.
This process has institutionalized… assimilated… the entire human race into the machine… The Matrix.
And this machine cannot be reasoned with… that is one of it’s essential attributes… you either comply, or find yourself alienated from cyber-society, and today that can virtually make you an outcaste in the *Real World*.
You will struggle to function, to do business, and soon even to buy and sell.
If the current trend is allowed to progress unchallenged and unabated things look pretty grim for the future, however I say we must not wallow in abject defeatism because despite the scale of what is going on I believe the solution is not so difficult to implement if we wake up and determine not to surrender.
All this Electronic slavery can be put in check by legislation that defends independence and privacy, while retaining most of the benefits that the internet provides.
Some efficiencies may have to be… ought to be… sacrificed for the sake of individual Rights, Privacy, and Liberty… not the other way around.
Our Humanity and personhood should not be sacrificed to the machine.
We are *not numbers*.
What I am saying is that our ‘Bill of rights’ has not yet been amended to protect our rights and liberty from Cyber-tyranny.
How can the basic premises of Liberty and rights be translated to set strict limits on the encroachments of Governments and Mega-Corporations via the Machine?
This is an important conversation that needs to be had… I dont pretend to be an expert on this, yet I do know that delay is allowing Governments and the Liberal Internet Giants to treat us like slaves.
There are many lessons to be learned from what is going on yet I want to mention several…. Firstly we as a nation must resist at all costs the move to a cashless society.
The importance of this is so monumental with respect to personal privacy and freedom that it cannot be overstated.
The Bible in the Book of Revelation (chapter13) famously predicted the coming Globalist Era and said compliance to this antichrist system would cost each individual their immortal soul!
We need to ensure the right to pay for goods and services via cash is upheld.
This will prevent our society from becoming fully enslaved to the machine and cause businesses to retain some level of humanity.
WE should start to express our outrage when businesses shut down ‘branches’ and stores at which customers can speak face to face with them rather than the only communications being ‘on line’.
We as a people should certainly get back in the habit of *Buying and reading printed books* and when any news article of importance is published on line we should be printing off copies and keeping them in files, because the one thing I learned from having my entire facebook presence wiped out for the crime of being critical of Socialist lefty ideology is how easily the ‘Book burners’ can wipe out any trace of dissident arguments with the flick of a switch… if the only repository of these works are online… in the Machine.
The right to use cash may require extra legislative protections, yet other things like buying books rather than reading E Books, and printing articles for safe keeping are not activities that entail legislative changes but enlightened minds that articulate the threat, and pro-actively form and promote *good habits* in the population that are conducive to maintaining freedom and that take away power from the machine.
I am not at all saying the internet does not provide humanity with awesome good things… yet I am saying it’s power for Evil is at least as equal to its power for good… and that we must snap out of our complacency and allowing the vested interests controlling this machine Carte blanche to absolutely disregard our individuality, our privacy, our rights to free speech and association, and have the ability to completely erase a persons life’s work for the simple reason that it exposes their Evil doings and ambitions.
We need to turn the tables on the Regulators and censors and curtail *their license and tyrannical bents* to trample our personal liberty and opinions underfoot!
Realise that a Constitution and Bill of Rights don’t exist to control you as an individual but exists to control Governments and other Powerful entities from enslaving us, and treating us like their cattle!
If we need to make constitutional amendments to defend individual freedom from internet tyranny… then let us formulate what these ought to be, and get them enshrined!
There is a need for urgency here.
Strong delusions are upon us.
We are literally entering the age of the Beast… The All seeing Eye…. The surveillance police State… the thought police… 1984…. Full blown Socialism… The centralisation of all power… The Kingdom of Nimrod…. 666… you will not be able to buy and sell except you have the Mark of the Beast and Worship his image.
The Spirit of AntiChrist is ramping up.
We live in an age of Mockers, and of Depravity… sure signs the end is nigh.
Yet still the ‘Salt of the earth’ should not falter… it is in times of crisis that the Freedom resistance and Truth tellers are most urgently called upon to stand strong, to prevent the Rot taking hold for some time yet… so that our Children may enjoy a good life in freedom… resisting total assimilation by the Godless machine.
The walls are closing in on Facebook.
They are in cahoots with the Police State.

Kiwi Book ‘Free Speech Under Attack’ Available Here.
A Friend of mine has been looking on government websites for any offical reference to Justice minister Andrew Little’s Hate speech Law proposals or Bill as he is wanting to fill a submission in defense of Free speech.
As yet there is nothing to be found.
Freedom Lovers and concerned New Zealanders have been waiting for a year now for Andrew Little to table his much touted ‘Hate Speech Bill’.
However for reasons we can only speculate on he is keeping us in the dark as to when he intends to start the parliamentary process to make his aims Law.
As minions of UN Ardern and Little have used the Christchurch atrocity to argue that New Zealands current situation on Free speech is ‘too lenient’.
He is also the one who has authorised the New Zealand Police to visit and harass Independent Social media voices for sharing opinions that are critical of his regime’s agenda.
Labeling them ‘Extremists’.
Their agenda has been clearly stated in such things as the UN Global Compact on Immigration that demands governments implement restrictions on free speech that voice opposition to their Open Boarders, Mass Migration plans, or simply express alarm at the erosion of their culture and the escalation of crime committed by lawless migrants and refugees.
As the first few months passed from his announcement that he was pursuing the introduction of hate speech legislation we assumed he was in the process of doing ‘due diligence’ in preparation of the speedy introduction of his bill, yet now as time ticks on The bill has not yet been tabled.
Little did in fact conciser using the excuse of ‘Combating false information’ in the lead up up to the forthcoming referenda on Cannabis law reform and The Right to die with dignity for the terminally ill as justification to table his Bill… yet seems to have backed away from that ruse.
Could it be that he is anticipating a huge public backlash and as such does not think it expedient to drop his bill before the general election scheduled for later this year?
Jacinda Ardern may enjoy massive Global popularity from woke folk far and wide, her popularity at home is always in flux to the degree that it is far from guaranteed she can lead her coalition into a second term in power.
They may fear that introduction of the bill before the election could be political suicide, yet after the election they could present it.
That Little was prepared to use the referenda as an excuse to pass his anti-free speech legislation should ring Alarm bells as that was a clear indicator of how they really intend to *control information* and steer the democratic process towards the desired outcome of their own agenda by controlling the Public narrative!
Little has also made it clear he considers The desire of many New Zealanders to abolish the Race based electoral system and Maori seats in parliament (institutions he personally endorses and utilises) as ‘Hateful’.
This is yet another example of how these Socialists seek to suppress legitimate views and arguments from being herd in the public square.
That is the Death of Democracy and freedom!
That is why we must oppose Little’s diabolical ambitions will every ounce of our being!
It is time for New Zealanders to stand in defense of our Freedom, Values, and way of life from systematic destruction and imposition of The Socialist Totalitarian New world Order that stands in opposition to virtually everything we hold dear!
They seek to reduce us all to slaves… this in no exaggeration.
These people despise Freedom, despise Christianity, despise Free enterprise and self reliance.
They want everyone to be dependent and beholden to their All powerful Socialist State which will be Vassal to the UN.
There is another more probable reason for Little’s delay…
I suspect They are waiting for some ‘Opportunity’ to present itself… some sort of ‘Stupid yet nasty’ hate crime to occur… preferably by a ‘White supremacist’ … something the media can make a National carnival out of it for a few weeks… so that he can pounce on the Public ‘outrage’ and rely on his legislation getting full support from MPs who all want to jump on the Pious bandwagon against ‘Hate crimes’…. that’s how they do business.
Such an opportunity could happen at any time.
We saw Ardern spring into action to pass Heavy Gun prohibitions in the wake of the Christchurch attack.
Her confiscations have not made our Nation more safe but less so.
She has in fact unleashed a police state upon us!
Ardern cloaked her Brazen opportunism of the Public hysteria generated by this horrendous crime committed by a foreign terrorist under a Hadjib… and hugs.
And again with the Covid-19 pseudo-pandemic she demonstrated the Socialist maxim “Never let a good emergency go to waste”
That is how you get Draconian Laws passed in our parliament.
While we await these Machiavellians to make their move We should be getting our public submissions ready as no doubt they will give us minimum opportunity to respond.
So much for ‘the most transparent regime ever!
Rushing trough Evil Legislation that tramples over our rights has also become their Modus opperandi.
I did written submissions on the last two firearms confiscation bills, and an Oral sub on the last tranche yet this Public Submission process is little more than a token charade… like a public haka… the Committee simply ignores everything they hear and recommends Parliament to proceed. Its a total scam.
It would be interesting to trace back trough all the bills of the last 20 years and get the stats on how many Committees hearing public submission actually recommended the bills be dropped, and have sited Reasons given by Public submission as being valid concerns.
I would bet $5.00 that there has not been a single instance that Public submissions have affected such an outcome.
Still our Submissions become a matter of public record and so may become useful Ammunition if every some principled MP tries to abolish any of these vile Legislative Acts.
They will have a mountain of Pubic Submissions to help them undermine and overthrow these Evil dictates.
Hopefully we can make Ardern, Peters, and Little pay at election time… Unfortunately for us National has been in cahoots with Ardern and co so in reality they are no better.
Bridges is a Tyrannical Turnip…. Colin’s is a Jackboot lover too!
So regime change would be largely just another Charade.
This post is a Rally call for Kiwis to prepare submissions in opposition to the Anti-Free speech legislation En Masse.
We Need to *Swamp the bastards* with a literal mountain of Public outrage that they would dare to trample over our Rights to free Speech and assembly!
Despite the formidable Hurdles before us We need a wave of Public submissions to exceed any quantity ever received on any other Bill!
That is how critical this matter is to the Future well being of our Country!
We need to absolutely Crush and Politician who seeks to impose the UN Globalist agenda upon us at the ex pence of our Independence and rights!
Maybe we should not even wait for little to table his bill before we start sending our submission directly to MPs, Party Hqs, and the Media.
We should create dedicated Social media pages to publish them also.
Its time for action stations!
Get those submissions started in opposition to any new restrictions on free speech and rally your friends and family to do the same.
Last Year, in anticipation of these new Hate speech laws I contributed to a Book called ‘Free Speech Under Attack’ from Tross Publishing.
Get yourselves a copy!
It contains many arguments that explain what is at stake.
Tell your friends about this book… we need to get the word out and start a popular movement in defense of Freedom and democracy.
“Reading ancient Greek dialogues we find Ideological antagonists… Philosophers of different schools of thought engage in the Combat of Reason.
The Dialogues are so written that we imagine scenes of Eloquent and civilised Toga wearing gentlemen each patiently hearing each other out without interruption… no matter how long an exposition might be… discourses all delivered in the finest art of Rhetoric and decorum.
The Rebuttals would be precisely on point, and deploying as much reason as can be summoned…delivers a devastating yet absolutely dispassionate retort.
Apart from moderated debates, this sort of civilised warfare was then, as it is today a fantasy. An idealized Charade that attempts to sell the ideal that certain mortals walk a ‘Higher path’ than the rest of us Savages whom are consumed with Base appetites and drives.
Such dialogues are of course tools by which the interplay can be followed between various rationale… they can even be carried on by fictitious characters and Gods.
In Reality when it came to contentious issues, The Greeks were as given over to their lower nature as any of us are today. They would take affront at having been bested in public and would Plot by any means the downfall of their ideological enemies.
Such was the situation when Socrates found himself in peril.
Representatives of the Status quo who did not appreciate his Expositions invented and spread malicious lies about Him … calling into question his character, nor hesitated in employing Political force against him.
It was common back then to have such ‘Troublemakers’ banished… or like the fate of Socrates whose unassailable power of Reason was rewarded with slander, and he was brought before the court ‘for corruption of the Youth’;
His prize for daring to question the legitimacy of the commonly held beliefs of his day was a cup of Hemlock.
He admitted to being a pesky Gadfly… for truths sake … his ‘crime’ was seeking to get people to question the veracity of long held backward and erroneous ideas that could not withstand scrutiny.
Free speech has always been despised by those seeking to perpetuate falsehoods and control the minds of the sheeple.
A study of Global history and of Cultures… across the ages reveals the same thing happening to a great number of the ‘Great lights’ and Reformers of their day…. I could list countless examples… yet it suffices to simply say that the struggle to attain the Liberty for the average person to publicly articulate our own views that we hold by right today in New Zealand… to which also we have become so accustom that is seems an ordinary and mundane thing …the right to criticise and question the powers that be… or to challenge the veracity of popularly held opinions is of itself a priceless high water mark of progress and Civilisation.
Its a hard won Taonga bequeathed to us by our heroic and enlightened Protestant Christian Pioneering Roots… an Ideal of the highest order hard won over centuries of struggle by the greatest human beings who have ever graced this Earth!
Free Speech is a vital and powerful sword available to all citizens they may wheedled in the Defense of their Rights and liberties from the establishment of new oppressive Laws and powers… and that is the reason why Dangerous Political operators seek to take away this defensive weapon from those they seek to subjugate.
Free Speech is a lighted Lamp to be held high to dispel the darkness of Barbarous, Backward, and unjust traditions and ideas that have yet to be vanquished, and it is for this reason that Freethinkers with New, progressive, and Better Ideas have always been in danger of being lynched by the mob who don’t take kindly to having their ingrained delusions exposed to the light.
So My friends…. Jealously defend this precious right!
*Always* be vigilant, and fearful, and view with suspicion *any Political party* or vested interest that seeks to pass laws that restrict Free speech!
Guard it as you would your own family… for in truth should this right be whittled away and lost… so too will their other precious rights fall in quick succession and if you fail to defend this essential right… you will bequeath to your Children a life of virtual slavery, and indoctrination.
Their future Depends on their Rights and Liberties being secure and it is our duty to insure they remain so on our watch until we exit the sage, and then it will be up to them to remain eternally vigilant… for it is the price of Liberty.
The gravity of what is at stake today right across Western civilisation with the Liberal Lefts Globalist agenda and their determination to curtail free speech under the guise of silencing ‘Extremism’ and ‘Hate speech’ cannot be exaggerated.
It should be easily appreciated that those Dark political interests who seek to remove the peoples right to Free Speech in a democracy must convince the population into supporting their anti- Free speech legislation, deceiving a naive by propagating the idea that free speech of itself is somehow dangerous or oppressive, or that the activists exercising their rights to free speech , and whose criticisms and opinions are subversive to the desired political agenda are themselves malevolent reprobates… and a threat to society… and this perfectly describes what Ardern’s Government is doing here in New Zealand in unison with her Comrades and counterparts in other western societies with regard to their relentless ambition to impose Hate Speech legislation that will effectively make it illegal for New Zealanders to critisise Lefty Liberal Policies or Narratives.
Hate speech legislation is effectively passing laws that use Ad Hominem Character assignation as justification for silencing dissent.
2500 years ago Socrates was legally convicted and silenced… murdered by the State under the pretense that he taught things that were ‘Corrupting the Youth’, so too Ardern and Andrew Little seek to shut down Political activism that is opposed to their various Political ambitions esp with respect to their Globalist Social Justice Warrior Agenda on Climate change, Immigration, Treaty separatism, Transgender Issues, Vaccinations, Feminism, etc.
With Liberals embedded in the Education system, Media, and controlling the Internet, they have managed to create a thick fog that now clouds the wooly public mind.
And so it is that as a freethinking individual who dares to swim against the current of Politically correct Liberalism, I must write in defense of free speech and in defense of my own Character, and the character of others who do likewise and emphatically deny that I am at all hateful, or racist, or Misogynistic, or anti-science, or callous about the environment!
Hopefully you can see just how Machiavellian this ruse of character assignation is that underpins Ardern’s hate speech agenda… the very same ruse that is being used all about Western civilization where ever Lefty Liberal minions of Globalism have gained a footing.
For they are all playing the same game…”
UPDATE: 27-3-20 I HAVE TODAY BEEN BLOCKED BY FACEBOOK UNDER FALSE PRETENSES!
I cannot write any new posts… and have not been given any Time-frame for how long my Exile will last… and this serves to validate this blogpost I wrote 2 weeks ago and many others I have written over the years… and my chapter ‘Free Speech and the fate of Socrates’ in the book ‘Free speech under Attack’ published by Tross publishing.
Order your Copy!
And Stand up for free speech!
People can find me and chat on MeWe > here
My facebook page is still there.
My Covid-19 New Zealand page that my fellow Admin will keep updating Here.
Despite the magnitude of what is going on the Great herd is becoming tired of having their News feeds filled with Corona virus stuff.
This page is a place to share discuss what is happening with others who want to talk about it.
It is Highly Probable that Facebook will have algorithms to suppress pages such as this one as they want to control the spread of information, So I do hope you check in regularly even if you dont get notifications, and please share articles and posts you think have important information for your friends and families, and also invite others to join.
We live in a Post-free speech era now thanks to the likes of Ardern, Little, and the Woke Globalist cabal in charge of Social media and so we must learn how to ‘beat them at their own game… learn how to keep our pages alive and vibrant…
This will take a conscious effort.
At some point they will accuse these sorts of * renegade pages* as being spreaders of ‘Fake News’… or ‘Hateful’ so that they can shut them down.
It may happen without notice.
People like me could suddenly ‘disappear’ off facebook completely… and worse… We could receive visits from the Thought Police… esp during times like this when ‘The powers that be’ decide that the Crisis justifies *very heavy handed suppression* of criticism of their policies and alternative views.
Look at this (video below) … A perfect example of Socialists trying to suppress the truth!
Look at the dates…
We now know the so-called ‘False information’ was in fact *TRUE* and that it was *The Government* that was lying… spreading *Fake News* from nefarious Political aims.
It is a fact that many who contract Covid-19 get Pneumonia … and that it is this pneumonia that is Fatal….
This is what happens when governments have the legal authority to impose their own narratives upon the Public.
Important note: It is not my intent to cause undue ‘panic’ or to pointlessly ‘buck the system’, for its own sake… I simply want to create a page where *all the information* is available for people to make up their own minds about what is going on.
In fact I encourage my fellow citizens to voluntarily comply with logical measures and desires of the Government when we can see good reason that such collective action will tend to the best outcome… up to a point.
I don’t intend to ‘Vet’ stories and only publish things I agree with… that’s not the point of this page… If you think a story going about *is bullshit* then you have the opportunity to say so and make your argument in the comments… and it is in that way that *even the Bullshit stories* serve a good purpose by presenting opportunities for people to rebut them.
Thereby demonstrating how Free speech is superior to censorship in how to combat bad Ideas and falsehoods.
Facebook has already *limited* the number of posts I can share here in a day ‘under the pretense of fighting spam’… which is a farce …. how can I ‘spam’ my own page?
Again this is part of a ‘control’ .
So I will be relying on others to make contributions to insure this page is fully stocked and up to date.
Please post jokes too!
There is no need for this page to be sombre.
Let me ask you this…. Are you watching the internet or is the internet watching you?
Are you choosing what internet information you believe or is the Internet choosing and controlling what you believe?
The People of the globe need to wake up to just how diabolical the Usurpation of control of the internet really is and that it is fast becoming a tool for tyranny (only their Propaganda is streamed).
The people need to rise up and insure they have legal protections against such Political manipulations!
We need laws that *prohibit* the censorship and prohibitions that people like Arden and Little are busy imposing on our Nation.
Currently We are rushing backwards into Tyranny and the Thought Police.
We must organise and protest… and vote for Politicians and parties that will scrap the evil restrictions on Free speech that are so dangerous to our society.
We must have Legal protections that forbid politicians imposing controls and censorship… threats of shutting down the internet… during times of crisis… and that if they do so… they will face harsh real punishments as crimes against the people.
Thank you for joining my page and may you all *practice* wisdom in your conduct to keep yourselves and your loved ones safe during this crisis.
May the Lord be with you.
Update: 18-3-20 I CALLED IT! We do live in the Post-free speech Era, and facebook has already started trying to shut my Covid-19 posts down
Update 19-3-20 “Youtube has been ‘inscribing people’ without notification”….
Update 21-3-20 Cases in NZ jump to 53 from 11 in just a few days.
Italy is reeling…. over 600 deaths in 24 hours.
I started writing this post a week ago, yet as things have been developing so fast, and because there has a powerful debate about how serious this virus is, I put my writing on hold to gather more information and watch how things have been developing….
The News is not good.
In fact my heart is sinking as I realise that almost a worse case scenario is unfolding before our eyes…
Today I released my personal Civil Alert.
The rationale is to look to your own safety and that of your families …. while the window of opportunity is still open.
To all my Family and friends, and facebook Peeps!
Its time to go into self Isolation people! The Virus will be in your street in a matter of days… weeks…not months.
I’m doing a shop today and hope to stay out of supermarkets etc for the next week.
I may pull Roman out of school next week…
Its that serious….
Most people will just laugh…. they only see the sun shining outside and all is well…. they have no idea how this thing is like the invisible approach of a tsunami… Nek minnit…. BOOM…. yet you left it too late to get to high ground.
A special warning and message to friends working in the Health system (and other services)… *Take care*…. and look to your own well-being… to what degree you choose to put your Vocational care for others above your own safety can only be decided by *you*… not your Employers…. and you have families of your own that you must consider… At some point *soon* you too may choose to self Isolate… and *no one* will have the right to accuse you of breaching some sort of *public duty* to sacrifice yourselves…. No doubt many will do so… many will put their vocation ahead of their own safety… and to such people our society owes an incalculable debt of gratitude… because it will cost many of them their lives….
These are horrible things to contemplate… yet that does not mean we should not talk about them…. because the Covid 19 is *no myth*… it is real… it is coming… and *the System* has its own agenda to keep society calm… so they will be hesitant to speak the scary truth… Yet The Truth must be said… so that we all walk into this thing with our eyes open… under no delusions… fully ready and prepared… and that my friends *is the best way we can fight this fight*… by being awake… ready…”
“The coronavirus is coming to you.
It’s coming at an exponential speed: gradually, and then suddenly.
It’s a matter of days. Maybe a week or two.
When it does, your healthcare system will be overwhelmed.
Your fellow citizens will be treated in the hallways.
Exhausted healthcare workers will break down. Some will die.
They will have to decide which patient gets the oxygen and which one dies.
The only way to prevent this is social distancing today. Not tomorrow. Today.
That means keeping as many people home as possible, starting now.”
There is a lot of pressure on governments to ‘do stuff’… yet what in reality ought they do… what powers ought they rightly to exercise under such emergencies… institute martial law?
There are of course legitimate concerns about Government measures crossing the line from legitimate activity straight into tyranny.
Using emergencies as a time to usurp great powers is a quintessentially Tyrannical thing to do!
Video footage of how the Chinese authorities has treated its people in ‘dealing with Covid 19 are absolutely terrifying!
China is Ruled with an Iron fist.
I do not have time to fully discuss this very important aspect in this post as I want to focus on what *we as individuals* ought to do *voluntarily* acting from our own intelligence… in our own interests… the question of the rights or wrongs of *Government actions* will have to wait for another time.
I will however include a short comment on the desire of the powers that be to ‘control information’ and the fact that nefarious globalist powers also seek to use this crisis to promote their wet dreams of a Cashless world order.
That aside there are serious Economic concerns about how best to act under this crisis… Internationally, regionally, and for individuals and families.
The stock market is spiraling downward… closed boarders are suffocating Trade.
Businesses are going broke… and that all means some households are struggling more than just the usual amount.
Many people live from week to week and have no ‘cash stash’ to use to get themselves emergency supplies enough to last months.
A commentator on the ‘explosive global situation’ makes the following statement…
“If you do not have active and aggressive containment measures right out of the gate, you are going to have a great big medical emergency later on.
Remember there is that three way balancing act… Do you contain the virus and stop the Pandemic, Do you preserve your economy, or do you risk overcoming your Hospital systems… those are the three variables you have to play off against each other… a lot of countries in the West in particular have made the decision to preserve their economies… not panic peoples… put out soothing statements… at the expense of what we are going to find out Italy has discovered here of a fairly overwhelmed hospital system that we think can only get worse…”
The point of implementing protective measures and practicing self-isolation is to ‘Flatten the Curve’… the rate of infection… see Ben Shapiro graph below.
A friend just asked me… “Mass self isolation is not without economic cost. What if your employer (and thousands of others) go out of business? Economic depression and ensuing poverty can also be fatal for many.”
“These are weighty matters that everyone must strike a balance they believe is in their own best interest… and ultimately being Dead or having loved ones die because of a collapsed health system is surely one of the highest considerations.
If the spread of the plague can be slowed it gives all our systems the least stress… and valuable time to get supplies… etc.
It depends upon the inclinations and interests of individuals as to how they will suggest is the best way of dealing with this crisis… At one end of the spectrum…many seem to be rolling the dice and doing nothing… these are the ones who say… “Oh its not even as bad as the flu…”…. others at the other end of the spectrum…. mainly Asians… *Have already bought out New Zealand’s supply of face masks*… are buying up all the toilet paper*… etc etc*… ie they are in full *self preservation mode*.
Somewhere between these two extremes most people will be sitting… yet I fear most will be down the ‘Do nothing’ end of the spectrum rather than prepping for the worst.
I myself am waaay down the ‘Action stations’ self preservation end of the scale…. and I worry about everyone who is acting so Blase about it.
I have good reason to think these people simply dont appreciate how dire this situation is… and by the time they wake up… there will be *no supplies* to stock up for self isolation… or worse… they will be in the first wave of victims…
My Thinking is that it is better to prepare for the worst… and find things turned out better than expected rather than letting misplaced optimism leave you and your loved ones unprepared when things turn out far far far worse than you could have imagined.
Now Put yourself in one of the Italian or Chinese cities that has been locked down… surrounded by a plague that is killing your neighbours…. what message… what advice do you think they would have for us…??
Don’t you think they would tell us with all urgency to prepare prepare prepare???
‘Panic buying’ is a euphemism for ‘loonie’… for ‘irrational fear’… yet are people like myself who are taking action for our own welfare Really behaving irrationally?
I think not.
I received some funny looks and comments from fellow shoppers when they gathered that I was prepping for Covid19
It is staggering to me that there are so many people who think this virus is less dangerous than the common flu!
The Coronavirus is probably number 1 news topic on the globe at present… and though the net is now flooded with contradictory information, my Social media page is awash with posts saying ‘it’s no big deal’ and that all the Doom saying news is just ‘media sensationalism’.
They say not to worry about preparing for massive interruptions of our normal social operations such as supermarkets, etc.
These posts all carry the insinuation that those of us who take this crisis more seriously… that we are somehow foolish simpletons who cant comprehend ‘the latest scientific updates and statistics’ that say that ‘Only Old people need to be concerned’… or ‘The common Flu has a greater mortality rate’…. etc.
That is simply *BULLSHIT!*
Its like these people are willfully selecting the information according to what *they want to believe*…*hope to be true*, rather than being Objective.
How is it possible to maintain such apathy in the face of such facts that entire cities are being locked down?
To my thinking You just dont do that shit when its just a Flu!
This thing is way more serious than the powers that be would have you think….
The UN when discussing how to handle ‘Information’ during pandemics have indicated their desire to control and censor the internet… even shut down social media… because they want to control the public narrative… they want to halt popular protests against their activities, etc…
You see the powers that be have a separate vested interest that can be in conflict with the people knowing the whole truth… and that their agenda is to *maintain control*
The following video is a *must watch*… its the sort of video that could get a Free speaker in trouble….
Wake up people!
In the following (video below) Joe Rogan Experience interview with Michael Osterholm “…an internationally recognized expert in infectious disease epidemiology. He is Regents Professor, McKnight Presidential Endowed Chair in Public Health, the director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP)…”
*He states that Covid 19 is up to 15 times more dangerous than the common flu* and goes on to make closer comparisons with the Spanish flu pandemic of the early 20th century that killed 60+ Million people.
Watch this video…..
Making the decision as to when to go into self isolation is critical.
The exponential nature of this plague coupled to the unique geographical characteristics of various countries makes it extremely difficult to ‘guess’ when things change from ‘acceptable risk’ to Too late… I do think favorable factors will give New Zealand a small amount of extra time… maybe a week or two… the problem being that if you self isolate too soon not only do you burn through your supplies and incur more personal economic hardship (by not going to work), but also some wives will start to think isolation was a dumb idea and step back out into society… *just as the pandemic hits*… rendering all efforts and wisdom for naught.
It goes without saying that the extreme risk comes from tarrying too long… and the ‘exponential explosion of contagion’ catching you out and about…because you left your escape too late.
And this raises another dilemma… what of the households where one of the adults wants the family to go into isolation… but the other one thinks thats being silly?
This thing presents problems and dilemmas of 1000 kinds… any of which mistakes could be met with the highest consequence.

Tool Concert a personal wake up call.
Just how difficult it is to make smart decisions to self isolate rather than attend ‘important’ events… like Big parties, concerts, etc was made clear when My favorite band Tool toured New Zealand just a few weeks ago, yet it was only at the last minute that I got a ticket and attended their Saturday nite show in Auckland.
It was a bucket list item for me… yet the fleeting thought did occur to me… ‘what about the Corona Virus?’… I decided the risk was low and the gain high… and Tool did not disappoint!
It was fabulous seeing them live and esp hearing their New Tracks from ‘Fear inoculum’.
Yet a Week later it became big news that in fact a Person with Corona Virus *did attend* one of the Tool gigs in Auckland… and consequently…frightfully… *2 people* caught the virus who also attended the show and stood near where the contagious carrier watched the show!
It turned out this happened at the show the day before I went, and the sick person was located well away from where I sat… yet all of this was pure luck.
*That could easily have been me* and I could have carried that contagion home!*
The risk may have been extremely low, yet for the poor people who caught the disease and are now in Isolation no doubt they appreciate *just how dangerous* attending Gigs and parties really is, and how easily such events *can spread the virus far and wide*.
This is why *self Isolation is essential*
Learning my lesson I have had to decline attending a 60th party in West Auckland of a Good friend who is not well (heart issues)… who may not have many… if any… parties left.
This is a painful decision… a hard decision… yet I believe it is the right decision.
It is *very difficult* to decline *personally important events* for Covid 19’s sake.
It is awkward and unpleasant explaining your reasoning… even though the truth is Isolation is in everyone’s best interest.
Making a decision to keep your kids home from school… making a decision not to go to work… these are Tuff calls… yet that is sometimes what must be done.
People who dont have the stones to weigh up the risks and make the judgement call for themselves… are like sheep waiting for the shepherd to make a grand declaration … or for the flock to panic and all stampede…. like maniacs.
Things could get nasty when the Zombies realise they underestimated the gravity of what is about to unfold.
They wont have any food… they wont have any sanitisers, health products, etc etc
They will have no Personal protection equipment.
These fools dont realise how the functionality of our society will be severely impacted… they assume things like internet shopping will carry on as normal… they dont realise that *all the supplies of essential items are already disappearing off the shelves* … not only by smart people who are fast enough to look to their own security and well being… but apparently there have been groups of Asian migrants who have stockpiled important Items to send home to their families… again… this is not some sort of ‘Evil plot’… but is in fact *what should be expected* people will do in such times of global crisis when the Mother countries where their loved ones live are in the throes of the pandemic have exhausted all their supplies.
They are doing what they can for their families and loved ones.
I do not mention the fact that that it has been Asians who have emptied the shelves to incite any form of hateful backlash against them.
I only say it because it is a fact reported to me voluntarily from virtually every store I have visited trying to buy face masks, etc. I did not ask who or why the shelves are now ‘out of stock’… the store attendants told me as a matter of fact.
This is how societies behave when faced with a Global epidemic.
This is a perfect example of *why we all should have listened to Civil defense* warnings about *Always having Emergency supplies*… a civil emergency kit.
Because when the shit hits the fan… it is simply *too late* to stock up.
You slept when you should have been a busy squirrel!
Now winter is here!
Dont allow this crisis to turn you into a Racist.
Dont let it turn you into a lawless
How we all behave in this time of crisis will determine our Mettle… what sort of human beings we *really are*… for it is only in times of crisis that our morals and values are truly tested.
Most of us have seen the pathetic video of the three Auzzy woman pulling each other hair out over rolls of dunny paper… and how one evil cow with a shopping cart chocker with rolls would not even allow the stranger to have a single pack to maintain her own dignity!
*That my friends is a demonstration of how thin the skin of civility is on many people and that beneath lurks heartless savages!*
In the time of crisis we will see that many Human beings dont give a rats arse about anyone but themselves!
Well my people I pray you have a great soul that that!
Be wise and frugally manage your supplies, yet I pray that should things become dire for your friends and neighbors that you do what you can to share anything you possibly can… because even the smallest measures of generosity and compassion could make the world of difference to those in dire straights.
And how you act in these time will not only be the measure of your humanity… but also will not be forgotten by those you help… or refuse to help…. remember that.
May the Good Lord be with you and your loved ones.
Update: Big News… Good news for children and young people…
US SURGEON GENERAL JEROME ADAMS: “If you are a child or young adult, you are more likely to die from the flu, if you get it, than you are to die from coronavirus. So, there is something about being young that is protective.”
This lifts a massive weight off the shoulders of parents concerned about their children.
This graph (Below) is very handy for understanding the spread of the virus.
It will help people to judge risk in the early period… yet for many countries thay are already in the the first phases of the steep climb.
It shows exponential growth over a cycle of 15 days.
10 000 x 10 000 …. in 15 days time…. in Italy, Iran, and south Korea.
We here in New Zealand have not yet hit 100 ‘confirmed cases’… yet that should only be in the next month…. in 6 weeks we could hit 10 000.
Globally the numbers will soar to a staggering number.
The death rate will be proportional.
Yet regional factors also have some variable affects… some positive… some negative.

This Blogpost has been a bloody nightmare to write… and will probably suck just as badly to read!
Not only is it Obscene in length, containing last weeks news that has been thoroughly covered by other writers when it was actually current … The whole theme I was trying to lay out simply didnt work!
There has been too much crap going on!
Yet because I have spent 3 days writing this sod of a thing, I am too peeved to just Euthanize it … letting it die quietly… with dignity…
I’m sorry…. Read at your own peril.
As the calendar clicked over into 2020 I was wallowing under a cloud at how oppressive Ardern’s regime and her henchmen The New Zealand Police has been behaving with regards to the Police raid on Right Minds Social media Commentator and critic of the Ardern Globalist doctrine and Concerned Citizen who made a Submission in opposition to the Firearms Amendment Act… Conservative Thinker Dieuwe de Boer.
The Police had evidently used his submission to the bill as ‘pretext’ to invade and ransack his home and traumatise his family… finding nothing…. yet leaving him (and the Independent NZ Blogging community) a clear message from the regime… of the consequences contrary opinions to the State Agenda could expect to be treated if they dare express them in the public domain.
This shocking act of Political Gansterism was just the latest in a series of such raids on independent Kiwi social media commentators … a clear systematic pattern now evident to all who are awake… one which the so-called mainstream media have done their part to condition the sheeple to endorse as a legitimate suppression of ‘Far Right extremism’.
I had predicted this Jackbooted activity would commence (here) given the Gun confiscation amnesty had been such an utter failure… the Police eager to ‘Punish’ those who had in any way attempted to protest against their new tyrannies…. and because the raid on de Boer’s family home was well covered by several Bloggers there was little I could have added to the discussion, and so I chose to share these commentaries rather than write another one myself.
Here are a few good ones….
Excerpt: “Many New Zealanders were shocked yesterday by the news that Right Minds columnist Dieuwe de Boer had been raided by Police, ostensibly to look for a now-banned magazine for a .22 rifle. As this essay will show, the true reason for the Police raid was as part of a wider effort to suppress dissent – an effort carried out in co-ordination with the Government and the mainstream media.
The New Zealand Government knows what it wants to do to the New Zealand people, and it’s going to do it to them whether they like it or not.
Like all authorities throughout history, the New Zealand Government has a number of people who oppose it, and a number of arse-licking slaves who support it. Those who oppose it are the New Zealand people, whose natural will is to live freely. Those who support it are the soulless hordes of weaklings who have always fallen in line behind authority figures.
That the Government works together with the Police is obvious. In theory, the Police are supposed to be politically independent. The reality is that most Kiwi alternative media commentators have now received Police harassment visits. Vinny Eastwood, VJM Publishing, Cross the Rubicon and now de Boer have all been targeted in recent months – all selected for harassment on account of their outspoken criticism of the Government.
What is less known is that the Government and Police also work hand-in-hand with the mainstream media. The media plays an essential role in this suppression by manufacturing consent for the crackdowns. They present pro-Government propaganda, and attack the reputations of anti-Government speakers…”
^ That is an exceptional piece of truth telling by VJM Publishing which exposes the mainstream media as fake news and complicit in the loss of liberty and headlong plunge of our nation under the Jackboot of a Socialist Police State.
And If that was not enough to depress the Concern citizens of New Zealand… the media kept pumping out the bad news that the State Juggernaut was steam rolling forward with ‘more ‘Hate speech legislation’… and more betrayal of the ‘Full and Final Treaty settlement process’ (re: Arderns utter disregard for the Law with respect to Inhumatao).
Anti-freedom Social engineers are constantly baying for more heavy handed socialism.
Academics and the Media have been promoting sugar taxes… and Taxes on Meat and dairy… Hospitals are changing their menus, not to improve Patients health but for the so-called Politically correct rationale of making their operations ‘more environmentally sustainable’.
I was feeling the weight of the relentless Millitarisation of the New Zealand police as being the new and accepted ‘Post Christchurch ‘Norm’ … having been sold to the public via the same lies that were used to justify the concurrent disarmament of Law abiding New Zealanders… that the Christchurch attack ‘had forever changed the rules of the game’… and that We New Zealanders must accept a heavy curtailment of our rights across the board… because we are being told our rights and liberties were ‘dangerous’… and therefore the Police needed far more Powers.
Today if the police pay you a visit they will always be armed… and they will treat you as if you are dangerous irrespective of the reason they have come to see you about.
Until Ardern took office, that B.S only happened in Communist shitholes or in Gun ho America!
certainly not here in Gods own!
Yet in the blink of an eye The New Zealand Police have become a serious danger to the New Zealand Public and they waive loaded guns in people faces on a regular basis and have shot more people in the past 10 years than in the previous 40… and at an accelerating rate…
Just recently 14 armed police turned up to Uplift a child from a single mother
This is the new oppressive reality that the Power Mad Socialists of both the Left and the Right are foisting upon us!
Worse… a huge deluded and ‘woke’ portion of our population are actively lobbying for their own enslavement… begging for the all powerful State to crush independent thinking and Self reliance… primarily these people are Bat-shit crazy … the brainwashed fear driven Pompously self righteous Vegan Zealots of the Cult of Climate change.
In the first weeks of the new year I was also contemplating how New Zealanders are being systematically railroaded into a cashless society… The enormity of this is chilling to the bone!
A Google search will bring up many articles that have been written in the past few years… here is one…
The realisation that this will probably happen without without any significant protest… being fully propagated in the public mind by our Mainstream media…. and the complete loss of Liberty and privacy… the All-seeing Evil Eye watching, and regulating, and taxing your every transaction… such a massive power accrual… in ensnaring the entire population into this system of Mammon.
What sort of future are we bequeathing to our Children????
It is Ironic that while the media report Climate change Doom hysteria is creating a wave of anxiety destroying the hopes and dreams of the youth because they are being told that the governments of the world are not acting decisively enough to reign in capitalism and Far Right extremism and hate…. yet I have been harboring my own anxiety and bleak outlook for precisely the opposite reasons… as I watch the loss of Liberty… The systematic vilification of dissenting opinions… and exponential growth of the Police state… how do tell my son to have faith in God’s grace and providence, while at the same time warn him of the fast approaching Global Kingdom of The Antichrist?
Laugh at me if you like yet anyone familiar with the New Testament and particularly Book of Revelation can see the Prophecies about the Global system of the Beast all coming to fruition… The spirit of Antichrist… the Roaring Lion… the evil seducing spirits at work sewing the idea that Christianity is Evil and its dissemination should be should be Legally suppressed as ‘Hate crime’.
“11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Satan Laughing spreads his wings.
These thoughts and others have been weighing heavy on my soul and because of a sense of utter helplessness to prevent the advance of Leviathan I have been suffering despair for the future… despair for my Children and Grand children… will they grow strong enough in Fortitude and wisdom… in Faith, and Truth to be able to walk the path that the Children of God must walk… and endure the Powerful delusions that will be propagated against the truth?
I am fearful that they will not be strong enough to resist and to endure… for I know what a monumental trial lies ahead for Christians and Libertarians.
And yet in the past few weeks several monumental things have happened that have reminded me of the importance of maintaining a positive faith.
When things look dark it is easy to get tunnel vision and to focus on the gloom… yet I am happy to say that I have today good reason to think that The Powers of Light are not yet defeated, and that Though things are dire… that still resistance is on several fronts causing the minions of Satan to retreat… and the first of those was January 31… BREXIT!
PRAISE THE LORD!
What a great day for Freedom and self determination in Britain!
What a Kick in the teeth for Socialist Globalism and their desire to destroy Western civilisation via Immigration from the third world, and the suppression of western values under the guise of ‘multiculturalism.
Britain is about to restore their place in the world as advocates for free Trade which PM Brian Johnson rightly accredits as the greatest means by which to raise humanity out of poverty and of creating bonds of mutual benefit between nations thereby greatly reducing the likelihood of Armed conflict.
Will Brexit cause other European nations to reclaim their independence?
Lets hope so!
As Nigel Farage said in his epic Farewell speech to the EU while saying that Britannia loves Europe he condemned the EU as Power without accountability… he slammed the EU’s pigheaded refusal to bend to the expressed will of the people… relentless in their determination to impose their agenda
“I’m hoping this begins the end of this project. It’s a bad project, it isn’t just undemocratic it’s anti-democratic.”
What a kick in the nuts for Socialist Globalist One world order!
A return to Independent Nations!
Again anyone who is familiar with the scriptures and the Genesis account of the Tower of Babble stands in awe of the wisdom of God in dividing the nations in the first place… to prevent the Evil One world Government of Nimrod… King of Babylon.
Politically speaking the concentration of Power has always been the greatest danger… for as the dictim goes… ” Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely” … so the Socialist delusion that a One world Globalist government is the way to end wars and wealth disparity is fundamentally flawed as by centralizing all power … which has always been a tenet of Socialism… you usher in not peace… but unleash the Leviathan upon humanity!
Christianity has the Ideological Goods that exposes such dangerous enterprises for what they really are.
Like Satan, Socialists hate the Bible because it stands in the way of their will to Power.
Being peopled and promoted by Globalists the EU is fiercely anti Nationalistic independence and effectively put the whole of Europe under the sway of UN Socialist Policies and agenda.
Hopefully we are in fact witnessing a turn of the tide against the machinations of Anti Western Socialist Globalism!
Add to this the acquittal of Trump in his Senate Impeachment trial… ending the latest Farcical and Malicious attempt by the Whacko Leftist Democrats to discredit and even topple Trump from power.
Now I am no Trump worshiper yet the fate of the World was very precarious in 2016 and the Defeat of Hillary Clinton by Trump may be understood to be akin the Brexit in that it represents yet another massive defeat for the Woke leftist Globalist Agenda.
Like British Brexit is patently a resurgence of Nationalism and independence… so too was the election of Trump a resurgence of American Nationalism…. away from the socialist New world order.
As Farage pointed out “Populism is becoming very Popular”, and Both Bexit and The election of Trump are symptoms of a Populist backlash against Woke Liberal Globalist bullshit that is attempting to destroy western values and ideals and impose a Global socialist dictatorship.
And as such the Rabid Woke democrats have sold their souls to Belzeebub …. and possessed with the deepest malice have incessantly labored to fabricate outright despicable lies to try and impeach Trump in the hope to damage his chances of Re election.
Their Fraudulent Congressional process of impeachment was an absolute partisan travesty by any legal standard, yet their Evil plans were once again thwarted by the US Senate which the Machiavellian Democrats did not control.
So My spirit has been buoyed by these huge events.
Now 2020 is not only a pivotal year for the US in that its Election year for them… it is also Election year for us too in New Zealand… an opportunity to Boot out The worst government we have suffered this millennia … the Ardern Regime, The problem is there is little to be gained given how utterly hopeless the main opposition party is!
This is of itself a very depressing fact, and yet the National party Leader Simon Bridges has made Several announcements that do in fact constitute some important improvements on what Ardern and Labour are peddling.
In particular he has said he wants the farcical Treaty settlement process to be fully wound up by 2024, He says that the waitangi tribunal should eventually go, and also wants to see an end to the Apartheid electoral system and race based seats in parliament!
Both these things are of the highest importance to me and so while ‘Regeim change’ will not exactly be reason for dancing in the street as would be the case if New Zealand elected a Libertarian party into office, none the less there are at least some reasons to be more positive than the current misery.
Given that Arderns recent meddling, having ignored the *Legal* status of Treaty grievances at Ihumatau as being full and finally settled , is threatening to completely put our nation back to square one
If Ardern is defeated so too will her Evil Collaborator be booted out!
Bridges early declaration that He will not consider any coalition deal with the current deputy Prime minister and Leader of the New Zealand First Party Winston Peters was music to my ears!
And watching Peters behave this a child kicking a tantrum has also been delicious!
It will be Good riddance to this Charlatan!
So I am doing my best to shrug off my recent depression and put on a more positive outlook…in spite of the Coronavirus outbreak!
Our world is in constant flux, and contrary to how I how I was feeling at the end of last year… I do appreciate that there is a wave of protest rising against Socialist Globalism that is starting to seriously impact upon their Agenda.
Their Greatest diabolical machine that is causing the most trouble is their great Global warming Scam… how much longer will they be able to fool so many billions of people and deceive them into supporting their Tyrannical Globalist ambitions?
Sadly there is very little to distinguish the National party from Labour esp when it comes to matters of Draconian militarization of the Police and intrusive surveillance.
Under National New Zealand’s slide towards a cashless society will not skip a beat.
What Simon Bridges has said about ending New Zealand’s Apartheid system is Great stuff…. yet will he actually deliver on it?
It was talk like this from Don Brash that put the fear of God into the Establishment Maori at the thought of losing all their Political privileges and Billions of annual tax loot that has them furiously working to entrench the Treaty and make it harder for this apartheid system to be abolished….
So be vigilant!
This challenge to Racist separatist power and extortion will not go without a nasty fight… and the real problem is that I fear New Zealanders dont have the spine to do what must be done.
Plagues and pestilence.
I have been doing my best not to freak out too much about this, yet evey day the news gets worse.
Is The Coronavirus Outbreak China’s Chernobyl?
What Bullshit are we being fed,,, and what is the real truth?
If we survive the Caronavirus Pandemic I myself will be giving my party vote to Act.
I cannot Blog more about the virus here and now… it will have to wait.
Still…Maybe it would be wise not to wait for people to start dropping dead in the streets and our country plunges into chaos and panic before making sure our Civil defense Survival Packs and your stores are in order to sustain your family for a Month at least, and start to fortify your body….
” Strengthen your immune system now. Stock up on iodine, high dose vitamin C, B.complex, garlic or allicin and vitamin D.Be prepared to self quarantine where possible, so stock up the pantry too.”
That last piece of advice was given me by a friend… (what the hell the Iodine is good for against viruses I do not know… a disinfectant?)
You will have to google that and find out yourselves, yet I think that sums up about all we can do for our own self reliance self preservation at present in the face of this terrifying virus… Waiting on the *The Government* to instruct you what to do is not a plan.
If shit gets real here in NZ supplies of essentials will immediately disappear off the shelves.
Dont be a sheep.
And at Times of crisis do you really want to live in a cashless society???
We all need to consciously resist the push to do all our business via the internet and make using Cash cool again!
This is just one way we can resist the evil desires of the Beast system and maintain our privacy and independence as Free Men and woman… lets tell the Banks, and IRD, and the Government to bugger off with their Evil plans for a cashless society!
Lets tell then No thanks!
We dont want it.
IMO despite all the evils we are wallowing in I believe having a positive outlook depend upon having a Life affirming faith in Christ and that no matter how bad things may get… Ultimately Good will conquor Evil.
As usual it was on the last night that submissions were open that I could no longer put off writing my submission… and as usual that left me no time to do a decent job of it… no time to refine it, correct it etc etc and I have just submitted it with just over an hour till submissions close…
I post it below…
Submission of Tim Wikiriwhi on the Arms Legislation Bill
I oppose the regressive step of reintroducing a Gun registry, and any further infringements of New Zealanders current Gun Rights.
I request the Bill be scrapped.
My concerns about this second tranche of heavy handed Gun laws proposed in this Bill, is that like the preceding Arms amendment Act which criminalised Law abiding citizens who owned semiautomatic firearms… who have now been forcefully dispossessed of their rightful property having been stripped of their rights though having committed no offences whatsoever… are yet again facing more unjust treatment by our Leftist Liberal Government and Police… under equally disingenuous aims and justifications.
The way the first Tranche was shamefully enacted sets the context by which the public ought now to view with trepidation this second tranche.
That spectacle is still fresh in my mind… the underhanded way Parliament cheated David Seymour of his vote to insure a more thorough process was followed… with far more public consultation… truly contemptible behavior by Parliament for Legal rigor!
There are good reasons why those legal safeguards existed for a more thorough process and yet all parliament colluded to negate due process!
The Shame of it stinks to hell!
Parliamentarians like Ardern whose personal Globalist ideology is at variance with her duty and responsibility to the people of New Zealand, and The Police who had been lobbying to get Semiautomatic Rifles outlawed for a long time prior to the Christchurch event, have colluded together and acted in self serving ways with respect to the first tranche of Arms confiscations, and being emboldened by the ease with which they were able to Rob New Zealanders of their Rights and property…. they now have come back for a second helping with this second tranche… that is born out of the same self interest and carried forward by the same contempt for the rights, property, and Liberty of the New Zealand people!
There is little evidence that the Government’s gun buyback scheme would avoid future gun-related death and injury, the Treasury advised the Government. (ref:https://www.newstalkzb.co.nz/news/national/treasury-advice-on-gun-buyback-little-evidence-it-will-avoid-gun-related-deaths/?fbclid=IwAR2ZCaHQttCvXPfJHKO9dWuokLwmMg2ywEyqsbsZxy7n9StvIFCuemWscvE)
And with this being so is it any wonder that large swathes of previously trusting New Zealanders are now starting to see through the propaganda about these arms amendments being about making our country safer, but now perceive the real underlying motivations behind these legislative actions that serve to take away the rights of New Zealanders and further empower the State?
New Zealanders like myself are not fooled by the semblance of ‘due diligence’ that this public submission process entails… New Zealanders need to ask whether or not The committees place any serious weight on concerns raised by Citizens like myself who oppose new legislation which take away the rights and property of New Zealanders and further empower the State… or as I suspect via cognitive dissonance and prejudice they dismiss voices of protest, and carry out their own ambitions… regardless.
For example I know that the committee will have received many submissions that will respectfully ask the committee to consider overseas evidence that Gun Registers are notoriously unreliable at keeping track of fire arms… and at best only keep track of those held by the law abiding… not criminals… and are very expensive to administer, and result in another bloated bureaucracy, and because they dont make society safer other countries have abandoned them And in fact it was because of facts like this that New Zealand decided the register was a waste of time and abandoned having one in the first place!
These people who make these valid points for which they have good evidence to substantiate their assertions that the reintroduction of a Gun register will not make our country safer from gun crimes are doing so under the assumption that this submission process is not a charade, and that the committee will genuinely be moved by Well reasoned arguments and appeals to facts.
These well intentioned and guileless gun owners take it on face value and have bought into the line that these proposed amendments arise from Ardern’s genuine ambition to make New Zealand safer… and that she and Parliament will be open to reason.
I suspect Ardern’s real ambition is ultimately the prohibition of all privately owned firearms… one step at a time.
I think to myself How foolish are these other citizens who appeal to the governments sense of reason!
How silly to assume that by providing facts and proofs that a gun register will not achieve the expressed outcome that our government claims to be the underpinning motive and justification for the Law changes that they will take heed of such submissions and this bill will not make it though the gauntlet into law!
I doubt this because Ardern and her Comrades keep their *Real motives and intents* hidden from the public and so they will not be swayed by such facts in the slightest… because they miss *the real mark*!
My submission on the other hand may be less congenial… but is more accurate.
Their true reason for enacting this bill and having a gun register *is about power over New Zealand gun owners*
Thus I can say with a large degree of confidence that no matter how many submission this committee receives in opposition to this bill that it will become law… the public be damned!
If after this Public consultation process it is determined *not to reintroduce a gun register* I will eat my hat!
Its already a foregone conclusion… because Ardern and the NZ Police *want the register for their unspoken nefarious goal.
All submissions and arguments and proofs about how a register is a waste of time with respect to public safety will fall on deaf ears as the *Real* purpose why Ardern and the Police want the gun register is *not about* safety or keeping guns out of criminal hands… but about making it easier for them… *The State* to implement future successive waves of Arms confiscations and make it much harder for The Citizens to refuse to comply… and this is their agenda and why a gun register *will serve the interest of Ardern and the Police very well*.
Step by step our Rights are in retreat while the jackbooks march forward until they have achieved their ultimate goal… complete firearms prohibition… the Socialist Police States wet dream!
The Draconian way Our Arden led Parliament and police have behaved post Christchurch Attack has in fact evidenced the tragic truth… The terrorist has won!
This Bill is part of an ongoing assault on the Rights of New Zealanders that represents a massive shift in personal freedom vs the Power of the State… it is part of an insidious erosion of Our Liberty and Rights that has been enthusiastically accelerated by our hostile Government and Police under the pretense of being an understandable response to the Christchurch terrorist mass murders.
A response that in fact is so ‘understandable’ it was not merely anticipated by the Terrorist himself… but carefully engineered!
Ardern and the Police have done exactly what the terrorist hoped they would do and he said so in his manifesto!
That’s the manifesto the government has banned New Zealanders from reading so that they can understand what the vile Terrorist’s actions were *really* all about for themselves.
The manifesto which our government has busied itself trying to get banned internationally.
So now New Zealanders who never watched the news reports about the manifesto… or took the opportunity to read it while it was still lawful to do so… are now expected to ‘Believe the Official narrative’.
In reality these new Gun laws have zero to do with *a rational response* to the Christchurch atrocity.
New Zealanders who are not fooled by Socialist Liberalism know our government is following the UN ‘textbook’ on ‘how to sell out your Nation to Globalism, a chief tenet of which is the disarmament of Western populations…which is why US Liberals are so hostile towards their second amendment which constitutionally protects american citizen’s gun rights from Liberal Police State confiscation.
And in this UN Socialist textbook it is the Police who benefit from all the new legislation… not the people… the people have to simply shut up… and do as they are told!
We see our Globetrotting PM promoting Anti-free speech State regulations of Social media, and yet
internet security via encryption is not welcomed… because it will hamper Government (Police) ability to spy on citizens.
Parliaments and the Police rushed Arms Amendments has sown mistrust and outrage!
Innocent and law abiding New Zealanders have been robbed of their rights and property by the collusion of Politicians and the Police.
After such belligerency is there any wonder Public opinion of the Police is at an all time low and that Ardern’s Coalition government is now tanking in the Polls?
The Vigilant citizen has every right to ask themselves what the heck is going on!
We are not the fools Ardern and the Police take us for… We know the subversive political doctrines that are being implemented by political ideologues and a belligerent Police Hierarchy.
We can see the direction you are taking our Nation… and we protest!
It was also the very height of presumption for Ardern to ‘Pontificate’ ‘that firearm ownership is not a right but merely a privilege’ … This statement coming down from on high is not *a fact* but her personal opinion that is worth no more than any other New Zealanders… no matter how often it was repeated in the press since.
That this utterance has become the dominant premise being peddled to the New Zealand public is a disgrace!
If such a position were to be accepted as a Fact that would render New Zealanders not Free citizens who enjoy the greatest Liberty… but sorry subjects of an Authoritarian State that rules by despotic Laws and powers!
Ask yourselves how it is that our society should slide so far!…. So fast!…so that now we are told we can no long enjoy the great freedoms we have had for generations?
The people of Venezuela surrendered their Guns and now cant overthrow their tyrannical Socialist government.
This is what the U.S second Amendment was enacted to prevent.
This is the Truth that Ardern and the globalists want to keep you all ignorant of….
They want you to hate the 2nd amendment which is the Peoples right to use arms to defend themselves and bring down a corrupt State.
They even had ‘Article 350’ which states “The people of Venezuela, faithful to their republican tradition, its struggle for independence, peace and freedom, shall disown any regime, legislation or authority that runs counters to democratic values, principles and guarantees, or that undermines human rights.”… and yet because the People foolishly surrendered their arms *They rendered themselves defenseless and had no way to get rid of the evil Dictatorship^… and so now they are victims… and dying by the thousands…. and the so-called benevolent Socialist Regime shows them no mercy… because the socialists care more about maintaining their grip on power than the well being of their own people…. understand that….
Ardern has used the Christchurch terror attack as an excuse to implement her own tyranical ambitions under the guise of making New Zealand safer… and the fools believed her… and allowed her to make us less safe!
Less safe from Terrorism, and certainly less safe from her Tyrannical Police State.
She has not disarmed any criminals… but has disarmed Law abiding New Zealanders.
It is no coincidence that she has attacked New Zealanders Gun Rights and seeks to destroy our rights to Free Speech… which is the right to call her out for imposing her oppressive new Laws.
This pattern of disdain for the rights of their citizens has been repeated all over wherever Socialism has prevailed… think about Tiananmen Square.
Think about Zimbabwe.
The Globalists *are Marxist communists* …. Ardern is a Communist traitor to the globalist cause…. she admitted this at the UN…..
Ardern is Corrupt!
She is putting our National interests second place to her own diabolical political delusions!
She is like so many treasonous Leaders across western civilisation like France’s Macron and Canada’s Trudeau.
Why do you think the whole World’s media and Globalist politicians see Trump as being ‘Evil incarnate’?
Why do you suppose they are all busy trying to get the people of the world to think of trump as being insane, Racist, and greedy?
and why do you think the Globalists have prevented Boris Johnson from implementing the express will of the people with regards to Brexit?
Why do you think they Put Tommy Robinson in Jail and have de-platformed the likes of Milo Yiannopoulos?
Wake up Fools!
Compare Ardern’s treacherous speech to that of Donald Trump!
Trump is far from perfect, yet his speech at the UN was a Truth Bomb!
The fanatical Left seek to shut down *anyone* who dares to challenge their agenda.
Look at Venezuela and realise the same fate of slavery awaits any population who surrenders to socialism and allows them to pass laws against free speech and the right of the people to bear arms… esp Arms like Semi-autos.
The New ‘Gun register’ is not being implemented to make New Zealand safer from criminals or terrorists but to make it easier for the government to take away the rest of New Zealanders means of resisting their tyranical globalist ambitions.
Soon voices like mine will be silenced.
Remember when you and your children are slaves…. that I warned you what was coming… and yet you did nothing.
And free speech is the right for me to expound these Truths that the government does not want the people to contemplate.
The Government wants this sort of political truth to be deemed as ‘Radical and Dangerous’… when it is Our Right to discuss these matters which upholds the fact that the State is *our servant… not our Master… and we may abolish it at any time we deem it to have become tyrannical and corrupt.
These truths are enunciated in the American declaration of independence,
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
These are Historic truths!
This is what the 2nd amendment is all about and why New Zealand needs a new constitution that contains these truths which outlaws the government from passing such Laws as they have just recently done with the Arms Amendment bill.
I am planning to make a written submission to
‘The Royal Commission of Inquiry into the Attack on Christchurch Mosques’.
Submissions close at 5pm Friday 27 September 2019.
A Brief piece of *Propaganda* is offered as an explanation of the general purpose of the inquiry….
” The Government announced that a Royal Commission of Inquiry would look into what State sector agencies knew about the individual’s activities before the attack, what, if anything, they did with that information, what measures agencies could have taken to prevent the attack, and what measures agencies should take to prevent such attacks in the future.
The Royal Commission is to present its report, by 10 December 2019, so the Government can reassure the New Zealand public, including its Muslim communities, that all appropriate measures are being taken to keep people safe.”
IE we are told that this is a genuine inquiry to make Us safer and prevent this happening again.
This is Bullshit.
I can already tell that this Inquiry is a Scam… by checking out the ‘Terms of Reference’ which are the instructions from Parliament that set the scope of the inquiry… what Parliament wants the inquiry to investigate and what it is prohibited from investigating… well in these ‘terms of reference’ (re: the link) we see that Ardern… in cahoots with the Police have already loaded the dice both to avoid the commission finding fault with the police leading up to the event, or with the governments actions after the event:
(A) no investigation will be made to inquire *into what failures the police made in issuing Tarrant a licence*
So this inquiry is designed to feign a rigorous investigations into the root causes… and yet one of the most vital aspects that need investigating… *How the Police could issue this foreign terrorist a Licence* … is *not* part of the investigation… thereby meaning the Police will not have to explain to the Public how and why they got it so wrong!
So there goes probably the most essential aspect of this horrific affair saving the Police and Government any fears of getting caught out as in any way culpable!
(B) the Commission is expressly forbidden from inquiring
or commenting on the New Arms amendments!
So what this means is if we the public present arguments that evidences that the new arms amendments actually make us *less safe*… the Commission is expressly forbidden from investigation this further or making recommendations *that may be contrary to Arderns ambitions to confiscate more guns!
So again the terms of reference *protect the Government and Police* from any lines of inquiry that calls into question their activities and Arms prohibition agenda!
So this means it is almost pointless submitting to the commission that a far better way to make NZ safer is to *strengthen* our rights to self defense rather than diminish them … which just goes to show just how much ‘hot air’ the claim that this is an honest investigation designed to fully inquire what was done wrong and what could be done better to help prevent this happening again.
It appears as if via the terms of reference the Police may even be handed an alibi.
Though they will not be facing any investigation into how well they adhered to their responsibilities and due processes on issuing licencees, I can see that if it appears that Tarrant was a complete unknown to intelligence agencies that this will not only be used to excuse the police for issuing him a licence (though members of the Gun community question the Polices procedural rigor) There is every likelihood that this Royal commission will ‘recommend’ an escalation in Police powers and intrusions!
This is a Farcical Charade…. A Whitewash!
Ardern’s Police state agenda against the people of New Zealand will keep chugging forward… under the pretense of National security against Terrorism.
Yet still I am going to make a submission and include a protest about these things… and at least they will become a matter of public record, because all submissions are kept and are available to the public to read…. and so I encourage people to get a submission together in the next 9 days.
P.S When is the government going to put Brenton Tarrant on Trial?
Whats taking so long?
Its been 6 months already!
The Longer they delay the more likely He will be rendered unfit to stand… is that what the government wants?
Is that their plan?
Or are they delaying until they can squeeze a guilty plea out of him so that we the public never get to hear all the facts????
Just remember there was no proper trial held in Australia after the squeezed a Guilty plea out of a psychologically damaged Martin Bryant for in respect to the Port Arthur Attack and that means no open and thorough scrutiny of the matter ever took place.
The Terms of Reference, set by the New Zealand Government, can be read in full here.
Translated versions are available as PDFs.
Summary of the Terms of Reference
The following is a brief summary of the Terms of Reference. It does not replace the specifics set out in the full Terms of Reference.
On 15 March 2019, an individual attacked the Al-Noor Mosque and the Linwood Islamic Centre in Christchurch while worshippers were at prayer. Fifty-one people were killed and more than 50 others injured, some seriously.
A man has been charged with offences related to the attack. His trial is due to take place in May 2020.
The Government announced that a Royal Commission of Inquiry would look into what State sector agencies knew about the individual’s activities before the attack, what, if anything, they did with that information, what measures agencies could have taken to prevent the attack, and what measures agencies should take to prevent such attacks in the future.
The Royal Commission is to present its report, by 10 December 2019, so the Government can reassure the New Zealand public, including its Muslim communities, that all appropriate measures are being taken to keep people safe.
Scope of Inquiry
The Royal Commission is to examine:
what State sector agencies knew about the accused attacker, before 15 March 2019
what State sector agencies did (if anything) with that knowledge
whether there was anything else State sector agencies could have done to prevent the attack
what else State sector agencies should do to prevent such attacks in the future.
The Royal Commission also needs to investigate the accused attacker’s activities before 15 March 2019, including:
his time in Australia
his arrival and residence in New Zealand
his travel within New Zealand, and internationally
how he obtained a gun licence, weapons, and ammunition
his use of social media and other online media
his connections with others, whether in New Zealand or internationally.
The Royal Commission must make findings on:
whether State agencies had information that could have alerted them to the attack
how State agencies worked with each other and shared information
whether State agencies failed to anticipate the attack because they were focused elsewhere
whether State agencies were in some way at fault
any other matters to provide a complete report.
The Royal Commission must make recommendations on:
what improvements could be made to the way State agencies gather, share and analyse information
how State agency systems could be improved to prevent future attacks
any other matters to provide a complete report.
These recommendations could include changes to legislation (except firearm legislation), policy, rules, standards or practices.
What the Royal Commission can’t look at
The Royal Commission cannot inquire into:
the guilt or innocence of any individual who has been, or may be, charged with offences in relation to the attack
amendments to firearms legislation
activity by entities/organisations outside the State sector (such as media platforms)
the response to the attack once it had begun.
The Royal Commission can consult with a range of groups, individuals and agencies to help with its inquiries. It must also appoint a person, or people, to help it engage with New Zealand’s Muslim communities.
The Royal Commission must act in a way to minimise the chance that its processes or report could be used for unlawful activities or damage the public interest.
The Royal Commission can suppress any confidential information it receives in order to protect public safety, avoid prejudicing the Government’s international relationships and maintenance of the law. In order keep this confidence, the Royal Commission may conduct its inquiry, or parts of it, in private.
The Royal Commission must present its report, including its findings and recommendations, to the Governor-General, in writing, no later than 10 December 2019. The Royal Commission may also make interim recommendations to the Governor-General at any time.
Before presenting its final report, the Royal Commission must also determine if there are any matters that should be referred to the Intelligence and Security Committee, the Minister responsible for the intelligence and security agencies, or the Inspector-General of Intelligence and Security first.
