Comments on New Zealand’s New National/Act/NZ First Coalition Government.

6 weeks after New Zealanders voted to oust the remnants of the Ardern regime, National Party Leader and New Prime minister Christopher Luxon announced to the NZ public the results of the coalition agreement between the three parties (National, Act, NZ First) whom have formed a majority government.
While most of New Zealand has been chomping at the bit in anxious anticipation to finally know what the outcome of their negotiations would be, I personally have been largely indifferent to it because I believe none of these parties truly deserve to be in parliament… none of them… they did not get my vote… so I have little expectations. It will be far harder for them to disappoint me than to impress.

Anyone who has followed my commentary on NZ politics over the last 6 years of Ardern, the Christchurch terrorist attack, the Covid 19 Scamdemic will know I’ve expressed open contempt not only for Ardern’s Woke tyranny, but also for these so-called opposition parties and their Leaders for failing to protest Ardern’s radical Globalist socialist machinations, and instead often collaborating with her in trampling our rights under foot.

When it comes to rights and liberties, to date these guys have proven to be piss weak, nonetheless I do expect this center right coalition to be an improvement on Ardern.
That’s not saying much as it would be near impossible *for anyone* to be as arrogant, and devious and incompetent as that walking catastrophe Jacinda Ardern.
For me however… despite any improvements that eventuate from this new government… they will never salve the bitter sense of injustice I harbour and the disgust I carry for the way these politicians operated over the past 6 years.
Useless Inert nothings!
For the past 6 years New Zealand functioned like a one party State!
Ardern ran amok while they bumbled about,
I did my best to deride them for their failure to defend Kiwis from her madness and treason.

Thankfully The Communists have been sacked!

Despite my disdain for these failed opposition parties… these Political Weasels, my arguments were never in favor of maintaining the Status Quo!
Far be it!
I wanted Labour gone with as much urgency as any other freedom advocate.
I never inferred a National led coalition would not be an improvement on the horrors of the woke radical Ardern regime.
My arguments were always founded upon *holding all these people to account* for their complicity with what happened during the Ardern Regime.
For that reason I say they are unworthy of being in parliament.
I hold them guilty of massive life destroying rights violations that occurred during this epoch of tyranny.
That is something that must not be forgotten… yet so many people wish to do exactly that.
Zero accountability for their crimes… nor has there been any contrition on their part.
I won’t forget this.

I’m still smarting from watching the support of the Freedom movement evaporate in the final months leading up to the election!
I have blogged about this elsewhere.

How will this new government performs and measure up to the expectations of those who voted for them?
Whatever happens, it will be impossible to speak of what might have been if the so-called supporters of the Freedom and equality movement had held the line and actually voted in the true and heroic advocates for New Zealand’s values!
It is impossible to compare what is about to unfold, with that which must forever remain speculation.

Only the small percentage of *Real Freedom advocates* who held the line are capable of maintaining the vision of what could have been.
They are my people.

For better or worse we now have a new government.
Will they deliver?

Over the years as a Blogger and commentator I have always endeavored to remain objective… Being quick to condemn when politicians do evil, yet also equally quick to commend when they do something righteous… irrespective of who they are or which party they belong to.
In keeping with this, though I am no fan of any of these politicians I am happy to say the new coalition agreement and first batch of policy directions promises to reverse some of the Far Left radicalism that was imposed under Ardern.
This is a positive sign.
They are off to a good start.
They appear to be putting their personal differences aside.
That is something interesting and commendable in itself.

Here is a NewsHub Article… Election 2023 coalition agreement: Christopher Luxon, David Seymour, Winston Peters reveal Government policy, ministers

Sad sack Authoritarian, Ousted Radical Left PM Chris Hipkins comments the National/ACT/NZ First Coalition “…will ultimately take New Zealand backwards,”… He’s right… yet what does that actually mean?
Be of good cheer!
It means undoing the subversive anti-Western radical socialism Hipkins and Ardern inflicted upon our country by every devious means they could conceive!

Arderns Woke Globalist tyranny was imposed largely without any mandate from the people.
Ardern imposed her extremist bents trampling underfoot the long held Christian values upon which our free and tolerant society has been founded, and by which New Zealand became the envy of the world.
Satanic Comrade Ardern did her best to destroy this… hiding her evil doings with ‘hugs’ and declarations of being ‘kind’, all the while she worked in the shadows setting up a heavily apartheid state that sort to make the majority of New Zealanders second class subjects, and making it illegal for them to publicly express their opinions that were contrary to her Satanic and insane woke radical agenda.
No government in our history trampled underfoot our Safeguards against corrupt legislation as her government did passing unpopular and so many oppressive laws under urgency in the dark of night… all the while keeping our compromised media in her back pocket.

Our press Absolutely failed to expose her underhanded schemes or warn the people of what she had planned to come down the pipe.

New Zealanders eventually awoke from their bewitchment and Ardern worship… almost too late… so devastating was her radical totalitarianism to the heart, soul, and economy of our nation.
She knew the people held her in contempt, and that is why she (metaphorically) jumped in a helicopter and fled the country… like a deposed African Dictator… Like a defecting traitor!

Did Nat/Act/NZ1 really ‘win’ the election or rather did they gain power simply because Labour crashed and burned?
Labour became so detested New Zealanders were desperate to see them deposed!

So while Chris Hipkin’s crys about Nat/Act/NZ1 taking New Zealand ‘backwards’… most of the country will be clapping and cheering with relief!
For the life of me a cannot think of a single reform or anything that happened under Ardern’s leadership that deserves to be retained for posterity.
‘Going backwards’ 6 years is absolutely essential to restore a New Zealand to that was Freer, more prosperous, less oppressive, less divisive, less indebted.
A reversal in this sense reflects a return to a government more respectful of New Zealanders true traditional values and Ideals.

On a final note before I post comments lifted from a Twitter post that details the New Coalition plan, I must swallow my election disappointments for the Freedom movement and come to terms within myself about the new government.
For the sake of our country I have determined to continue with my already well established modus opperandi.
Henceforth I shall encourage the coalition to be bold and be willing to withstand all the Guile and slanders that the Woke left will heap upon them for every reform they seek to implement.
I will uphold them when they seek to do good, yet still and I will revile them when they falter.
I sincerely hope to encourage more than disparage.

Read Damien Grant’s Stuff article… The new Government has a once in a generation opportunity to lower taxes

Being an objective commentator wins few friends.
The nauseating sycophantic cultist ‘Winston worship’ has already started, and in fickle times any positive commentary wins approval from the shallow swimmers, yet should you dare to point out any flaws in their Idols you are guaranteed to face slander and contempt.
Such is life for the honest and principled.

It will be interesting to see whether or not the remnants of real Freedom movement, and the many great New Zealanders spread among the small new parties who were betrayed and deserted in the final hours leading up to the election whether or not they can use the next 3 years to unite and rebuild their strength, to come back with avengeance.
I myself hope that becomes a reality, and am willing to participate in that… so people please post this article to the various Freedom parties and encourage their leadership to contact me so that I can participate in that unification process.

What follows is a post I copied and pasted from Twitter (X) that lists the Coalition agreement and initial aims of the New National Led Government.
I must say there is much to be hopeful about… for example they plan to abolish The Maori Health Authority.
Hopefully that is just the beginning of the deconstruction of Apartheid in New Zealand.

Still there is much that remains dubious… for example to what degree will the promise to expand the Covid 19 inquiry actually bring accountability to government actors who violated New Zealanders rights?
To what degree will tyrannical pandemic legislations be be abolished to prevent the same evils happening again?
To what degree will constitutional reforms be enacted to prevent abuses of power and the subversion of our legislative due processes so that the ‘Urgency’ cannot be weaponised to impose anti-democratic radical Social engineering policies that are contrary to the principles of Liberty and equality before the Law?
Forgive me from being skeptical about how committed this new government will be to fixing these problems given National Act and NZ First have been completely spineless on all these counts up till now?

Let’s see how things pan out….
God defend New Zealand.

They are at it again! This Labour government might be about to be kicked into touch yet they are hell bent of attacking Free speech and controlling On=line content via creating a new un-unelected Censorship Authority to carry on wreaking havoc on our country after they have lost supreme power.

That is to surrender our country to Marxist tyranny!

*****

This is my submission.
30-7-23.

On the Proposals for a New Regulatory Body within the Safer On-line Services and Media Platforms Discussion Document.

To the committee.

This is my written submission opposing the government proposal to create a new appointed regulatory body that will essentially prohibit New Zealanders sharing their personal views, and opinions on line which do not conform to the narrow one sided opinions of Gov appointed gatekeepers under the guise of ‘protecting vulnerable minorities’.

The new authority will not be subject to the democratic process.
That is unacceptable and dangerous.

I reject the idea that the creation of such a regulatory authority will make New Zealanders safer.

I believe it will have the opposite effect because it will curtail the most essential attribute for a free and civil society… The right to free speech, which includes the right to hold and express views that are contrary to those of the government of the day.

Free speech is essential to the safety of the people, including minorities as their views, opinions, and general liberty are protected by the same principles of Law… equally applied.
History shows that Government regulation of free speech puts populations in grave danger!

This government has tried to enact hate speech laws in the recent past yet met with strong public outrage and yet here we are… the same meddlesome radicals hoping to enact their own designs through the back door while the people are unaware.
The majority of New Zealanders do not even know these proposals are being pushed forward!
This is an attempt to subvert democracy and enact this regulatory body by stealth!
Where was all the Public advertising that you were planning this curtailment of their free speech on line?
Where was your invitations to the public to have their say?
Zero!
This can be juxtaposed with all the Gov mass advertising telling the people to get vaccinated!
Obviously this government thinks free speech is not a matter of great Pubic importance!
In truth this government considers free speech an impediment to the implementation of their radical agenda.

So on the basis that this proposal will not face thorough public notification and consultation, I hold this committee to desist from moving forward with the proposals in the discussion document as they have no legitimate mandate from the New Zealand people.

I had to receive my short notice of your intended power grab from independent free speech watchdogs ‘The Free Speech Union’, and Hobson’s Pledge!
This exposes the underhand nature of what is afoot… You wanted to minimise public input because you know what you are proposing goes against the will of the majority.
For the same reason this Government has pushed through so many radical new laws under urgency when there has been no legitimate justification for doing so!
They have done this to sidestep the Legal safeguards that are supposed to prevent Radicals corrupting our Democracy.
This has been the least transparent, most undemocratic Government in the history of our nation.
They are running our country into the dirt!

This Radical Labour Government is in it’s death throes.
Jacinda Ardern quit her post knowing the writing was on the wall.
This Government cannot claim to represent us.
To enact this proposal will be an act of subversion against our democracy.

Let me now propose the correct way the rights of minorities and individuals are legitimately protected in a free and civil society.
Rather than by creating more Bureaucratic monstrosities and apartheid laws, the proper means to protect minorities is the entrenchment of a Bill of Equal Rights that Parliament and corporations must honor as the highest laws of the land.

It can be rightly argued that an absolute democracy ( Democratically elected parliament with absolute power) is nothing more than arbitrary mob rule and that as such minorities and individuals can and do get trampled under foot. This is what a Bill of Rights *with teeth* prevents.

The unspoken rationale for creating the proposed new on line Authority is to steer the public discourse, preventing popular dissenting voices from successfully rallying the people against Government desired social reforms and policies. The rationale is if Free speech is allowed to reign this will thwart unpopular Government interventions thereby perpetuating the imagined oppression of select minorities the woke socialists wish to ‘elevate’.
The means by which they now seek to achieve this (by censoring opinion) to control the public discourse is extremely partisan.

The establishment of Apartheid institutions such as this proposed Authority will corrupt the democratic process of which free speech and the right to dissent is fundamental.
Instead of fighting Racism These patently Racist laws and institutions entrench racism!
They ferment prejudices and disrupt racial harmony.


Noam Chompsky

The proper way to protect minorities from mob rule is by having an iron clad Bill of Rights which Parliaments must respect. This way minorities and individuals *are guaranteed the same rights* as everyone else. So that they cannot be legally oppressed as they have full redress to the Law and the principle of equality of rights!

Clearly the aims of the present Government is not true justice as defined by equality before the Law, but to grant special rights, privileges, and advantages to their pet demographics with one hand, while actively suppressing, disadvantaging, and trampling the rights of Demographics they disfavor.

This is how ‘Critical Theory’ and ‘Identity politics’ functions. It is diametrically opposed to equal rights, and justice, and the traditional enlightened ideals and values which made New Zealand a first world nation and makes our country such an exceptional place to live.

New Zealand is not a racist country!
New Zealand is not a bigoted Nation!
Any pretenses to the contrary are Radical Political constructs with no basis in fact or reality.
For example it is a travesty to sugest the greatest threat to New Zealand society is ‘White Nationalism… White supremacy’!
That is an outrageous slander against the good character of the New Zealand people!
It is a political lie!
On-line hate is not a serious problem in New Zealand that warrants this heavy handed intervention.
Critical Theory is in fact a recipe for creating Racist and bigoted societies fragmented by pitting one demographic against another.

It is easy to foresee the new regulatory Authority would seek to suppress opinions like mine from being desseminated on line.
I would be censored out of existence in the on-line public square.
I would most likely be maligned by this Regulator and defamed as a hateful and dangerous racist, and would have no way to defend my name.
Their Hate speech laws could even threaten me with jail.
The idea is that people like me should not participate in public discourse, but shut up… and allow the government to impose it’s will unchallenged.

These are serious matters.
The powers that be seeking to establish this new authority do not wish the conversation to be taken in this direction for obvious reasons.
They don’t like opinions like mine that express concerns their new engine will be used for nefarious political ends. They take umbrage at the very thought their personal views might be considered dangerous and hateful! How dare I!
As we speak they are attempting to de-legitimise and disqualify submissions like mine under the guise of being ‘hateful’ ‘offensive’, and thereby not be obliged to register them and make them publicly available for scrutiny.

Tell me whose interests are really served by this raft of curtailments of long established democratic rights?

They want to maintain the pretense that the proposed authority will make the internet ‘safer’ for certain groups and will lose little sleep that their Thought Police will suffocate dissenters like me.
In fact they salivate at having such power.
I’m a member of a particular minority they despise!
I’m the type of ‘dangerous’ thinker they wish to keep everyone ‘safe’ from!
In reality I am a defender of truth and freedom and an enlightened advocate for limited government and equality before the law.
Values and ideals held by a majority of New Zealanders… The group the Socialist radicals wish to subjugate.
I have no hate in my heart.
I am passionate about protecting Freedom and National independence for my children’s sake… and their children.

Why do you think most New Zealander strongly oppose the government setting up such an Authority which will curtail their On-line freedoms?

We know such an authority will be used to prevent criticism and protests against the governments radical socialist agenda which stands in opposition to New Zealanders long held traditional values and ideals… and that is why this governments agenda can accurately be described as radical and hostile.
The proposals are in fact seeking to impose Racial prejudices into law under the pretense of combating racism!
I am of Maori decent yet the proposals frighten me because they give powers to censor dissenting views which seek to rally the people of New Zealand to defend our national interests, and resist the Globalist socialist agendas being planned abroad by powerful organizations which is nothing short of surrendering our National sovereignty.

It is no exaggeration to say that should this new Authority be enacted that it will be done so without any mandate of the Majority of New Zealanders but against their well established and previously clearly expressed will… that of strong and overwhelming opposition to the furtherment of institutional Racial separatism. This is easily gleaned from the many other attempts New Zealand Governments have tried to further entrench separatism, yet were faced with overwhelming expressions of public objection.
Examples of this are plentiful, such as the 2013 Government Constitutional Review.
Now the Radicals, having had their aims thwarted by the safeguards of Democratic due process, now seek to achieve their apartheid goals by subverting public consultation processes, referendums, and other impediments that have been put in place to prevent our Government and Laws being highjacked by Radicals against the will of the people.

Regarding The concept of Te Ao Māori (Māori world view)
What a travesty!
The truth is there is no such thing as ‘The Maori position’. The Pro-Maori position, etc. *That is a politically manufactured travesty*,
Like all peoples (such as the Pakeha) despite decades of propaganda and indoctrination in the State education system, we Maori don’t all think the same things, believe the same ideas, etc.
The notion that People can be so easily compatmentalised is shambolic!

Thinking Maori individuals can and do exist on all sides of any debate… They are not all locked in ‘Group think’… slaves to their tribes, or their ethnicity. It is therefore a scam to pretend any hand picked body of Bureaucrats will be ‘representative’ of Maori.

In the same way that the majority of Maori do not support the regressive and divisive views of Te Pati Maori!
Yet we can be sure your new Regulatory board will be peopled with Radicals who peddle Te Pati Maori type wares cloaked under the guise of being ‘The Official Maori World View’.
Most Maori today are not stuck in the past but happily share modern Western Values and concepts with the rest of New Zealand. ‘He Iwi Tahi Tatau’ We have become one people in the true spirit of the Treaty of Waitangi. While we still enjoy many aspects of our cultural heritage we do not appreciate nor desire to be hog tied to the past, values, and backward concepts that may have held currency long ago.
So any idea of an Official ‘Maori view’ being today distinct from all other Kiwis is a false political construct designed to institutionalise Racial divide and prevent citizens from being able to voice their abhorrence for such a contemptible, and divisive scheme. To speak against this scheme will be deemed to be *Anti-Maori and Hateful Racism*.
This is a claim Te Pati Maori Radicals make all day every day!
That is the sort of politics this new authority will represent.

The idea of entrenching an ‘Official Maori world view’ is a scheme that seeks to reverse the progress of the last 150 years and Re insnare most Maori back under tribalism.
The very act of speaking out against these racist schemes will be deemed to be ‘Anti-Maori’ and rendered a thought crime!
How can a democracy work when Political Parties Like Te Pati Maori, The Greens, and Labour make all sorts of derogatory claims about Pakeha New Zealanders, and twist historic reality to suit their own agenda, accruing more and more Authority, Power, and Tax money unto themselves all the while the rest of New Zealand must sit in silence while they are being defamed, defrauded, and disenfranchised?
This is what happens under an apartheid State!
This is real racial prejudice!
This is what your proposal seeks to establish and why it is an abomination!

When will you wake up to the fact that all your decades of so-called socialist ‘positive discriminations’ designed to raise Maori out of their dire social statistics are a complete failure?
The true problems facing the Maori people today is not racial oppression, but poor ethics, backward ideas, and a massive lack of self responsibility!
All your socialism and victim blaming of the Pakeha has rendered them basket cases!
They take zero ownership of their own circumstances.
If they are ever to rise out of the mire they must quit all the blame and take ownership for their criminality.
They must take ownership for their own ill health.
Socialism traps people in Dependence upon the State!
It does not promote Moral fibre and strong self-reliance!
Maori are already the most politically favoured race in New Zealand by a country mile. Yet that truth never prevents them from claiming to be the perpetual victims of Racism.

Socialism is a totalitarian ideology that treats populations like hapless puppets rather than free Self governing individuals with rights… to be manipulated, and cajoled into conforming
to Socialist aims… all under the guise of Social justice as conceived by them… The self-professing benevolent Puppet masters.
They are forever attacking freedom and forever hungry for more power and authority.
They know best! That is what they believe and they expect us to surrender our own values and beliefs and bend to their superior will.
To question their motives and wisdom is to be considered a Hateful bigot and crackpot.
The thing is we New Zealanders are not so easily fooled! We know who really are the dangerous Crackpots and extremists whose values are at variance with the people and traditions of our country!
The race question is just one Free speech issue your proposed regulator threatens to suffocate.
Other socialist schemes will also become forbidden to dissent… such as on matters of Immigration, Vaccination, Climate Change policy, Matters of Sex Education, sexuality, etc. as it is easy to predict ‘scope creep’ from this new body and the very idea of ‘A Maori World View’ must be by it’s very nature.. an ‘All encompassing Wholistic paradigm’ with tentacles reaching into all things political.

We Freedom loving New Zealanders will not tolerate our Free nation being hijacked by Radicals hell bent on destroying the foundations of Freedom… esp Free Speech.
We shall peacefully resist at every step, as is our right.

“Free Speech is a lighted lamp to be held high so as 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.
We must 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, should this right be whittled away and lost, so too will 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 ensure they remain so on our watch until we exit the stage. Then it will be up to them to remain eternally vigilant for that is the price of Liberty.” (Free Speech Under Attack. Tross Publishing. pg 181-182)

There are members of our parliament whose true allegiances lie with a corporation of Foreign interests such as the World Economic Forum, The United Nations, The World Health Organisation… who desire to destroy the foundations, values, and traditions that underpin Western Nations, and which have caused them to prosper far above other portions of the world.
These Globalist organisations have a plan by which they seek to usurp the Sovereignty and Independence of prosperous Nations like New Zealand.
They desire to cripple our democratic foundations whereby the people elect their own leaders for the sake of putting their nation and peoples interests first.
This creates a bulwark that stands in the way of the Globalist scheme for a New World Order, Global digital currency and ID system.
That is why the Golbalists know nationalistic democracies like the one we have in NZ must be weakened, so that their Global schemes can be imposed… most of which is contrary to the best interests of these First world nations.
The people are not fools. We can see when politicians are betraying our interests. And when they do this we protest, and we sack them.
The Globalists plan requires politicians of divided loyalty to gain control over their nations internet and regulate what citizens may or may not say on line.
Then they can control dissent
and prohibit online discussion and protests against the implementation of the Globalist agenda.
You may mock my opinions. That’s fine. Just remember I have the right to hold and express them on line and out on the street.
I have the right to participate in the Democratic processes of this country,

In conclusion I reiterate my absolute opposition to the establishment of this Un-elected regulator of New Zealanders On-line activities.
I believe Free Speech must be upheld for All New Zealanders and that no ‘official Narratives’ be allowed to be ‘blueprints’ for what New Zealanders are allowed to Think, or say.
It is not hateful to hold and express values and beliefs that dissent from the Government of the days opinions and theories’.. or even ‘Science’. It is a right that must remain protected By Law for that is vital for any Free society to exist.

“Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence? Michael W Smith.

Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died. Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons in the revolutionary army, another had two sons captured. Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the revolutionary war.
They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.
What kind of men were they? Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists. Eleven were merchants, nine were farmers and large plantation owners, men of means, well educated. But they signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured.
Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the British Navy. He sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags.
Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his family almost constantly. He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward.
Vandals or soldiers or both, looted the properties of Ellery, Clymer, Hall, Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton.
At the battle of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson Jr., noted that the British General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters. The owner quietly urged General George Washington to open fire. The home was destroyed, and Nelson died bankrupt.
Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed. The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months.
John Hart was driven from his wife’s bedside as she was dying. Their 13 children fled for their lives. His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste. For more than a year he lived in forests and caves, returning home to find his wife dead and his children vanished. A few weeks later he died from exhaustion and a broken heart. Norris and Livingston suffered similar fates.
Such were the stories and sacrifices of the American Revolution. These were not wild eyed, rabble-rousing ruffians. They were soft-spoken men of means and education. They had security, but they valued liberty more. Standing tall, straight, and unwavering, they pledged: ‘For the support of this declaration, with firm reliance on the protection of the divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other, our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.’”

It has always been the ambition of Cold War Communism to overthrow ‘British imperialism’ and set up their own quazi-‘Imperialism’ of Global Socialism, and they have set about achieving these objectives via ‘a long march’ infiltrating all tiers of Social institutions esp Education, and also by the strategy of ‘Divide and Conquer’… agitation for rebellion amongst ‘Indigenous populations’…. creating Social unrest, and Racial strife all designed to Weaken and Destroy British based democracies like New Zealand.
It has always been a Marxist wet dream to see the Commonwealth fragment.
This being so, whenever the question of New Zealand leaving the Commonwealth has come up, it has always been a thorny issue for me as a Libertarian.
I do believe it is the natural order of progression for a Nation to become fully independent… a Republic, yet the question must be asked… What sort of Republic would be established?
If the answer is to be an Apartheid Socialist Republic (which is what the Leftist radicals want) then as far as I’ve been concerned New Zealand fares much better to remain under the Civilised wing of Great Britain, and her Rule of Law, and The system of Equal Rights! And also maintaining our Commonwealth fraternity of shared enlightenment values.

This is what Queen Elizabeth represented. She was an anchor that slowed down the disintegration of values and as such there was great merit in remaining in her Commonwealth.
She lived long, and people were free under her rule, to the degree that she did not impose her personal beliefs via the Law as was normal in previous ages. She governed as an exemplar of Character and personal virtue.


The stone of Destiny has arrived in London for Charles Coronation.

She has gone now, and King Charles is about to be Coronated with Diadem, holding the Orb, and Scepter… mystical relics that imbues Sovereignty and Awe!
Or at least that is how it’s all supposed to work!
Charles has had plenty of time to contemplate his succession, and he more than anyone appreciates the challenge of being/ becoming a rightful ‘King’ in the hearts and minds of myriads of people… The majority of whom are Moderns… educated, democratic… steeped in enlightenment values, and who put little weight on the mystical powers of the Baubles of office.
The Divine right of Kings’ is an obsolete doctrine.
Many Britain’s simply see the Monarchy as a Tourist attraction.
Then you have the Noisy minority of Woke Marxist extremists in every corner of the Commonwealth who want to abolish the monarchy and set up a Communist New World Order!
These people are fundamentally opposed to everything British. They despise The values of the Commonwealth, They are a dangerous and destructive element… who in their right mind would listen to these lunatics?

At birth Princess Elisabeth was not directly in line for the Throne, yet she was fated to be Queen. She was by the time of her Coronation popular with the people, particularly for her conduct during WW2 when she and her parents shared the lot of Londoners during the Bliz. Upon turning 18 voluntered to aid the War effort becoming a Mechanic in the Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS), the women’s branch of the British Army.
Read more here.

As already mentioned, with his mothers enduring reign, Charles has had plenty of time to seriously contemplate how he is going to perpetuate popular support for the Monarchy into the New era yet I think he has made a monumental blunder in thinking the future will be Woke.
He has positioned himself not only as a member of the Cult of Climate Alarmism, he has also endorsed Claus schwab’s ‘Great Reset’.
Is this because *His masters in the Illuminati* have commanded him to steer the British empire in this direction?


Prince Charles and Evelyn de Rothschild.

It is a dangerous path to take!
Not only is it a betrayal of the independence of the British Isles, In taking this course he is selling out the chief reason why it was a reasonable idea for Nations like New Zealand to remian in the Commonwealth!
If The King has gone Woke… then we are better of cutting ties and setting up our own Republic that retains our Sovereignty separate from Schwabs Globalist NWO.
This means we must defend Free Speech at all costs so that we can rally our people to fighting the Communist Globalists embedded in our institutions and establish a truely Free Constitutional republic.
I believe Charles has made a huge blunder.
Western civilisation hangs in the balance, yet I believe the true weight still is in favour of Commonsense, National sovereignty, and Christian/enlightenment values.


We all know what a monumental marketing blunder it was for Budweiser Beer to go woke! Totally alienating their Core Customer base. The strategy was to ‘modernize’ their brand to make it more appealing to the next generation…. It was an Epic failure!

Charles is the Bud-light of Kings, basing his future upon bad marketing advice. If the Monarchy no longer stands for the Classical British Ideals that underpinned the Free West then it no longer serves it’s purpose as a bulwark against barbarous encroachments.
Wrong Bet Charlie!
Go Woke… Go Broke!

He is primed to sell out the British Isles and Commonwealth to Claus Schwarbs Great Reset, and the WEF New World Order.
The Coronation itself will be a spectacle!
Not since Edmund Hillary conquered Everest has the Empire witnessed such Pomp!

So under King Charles will the monarchy become like Tits on a Bull?
Serving no useful purpose whatsoever?
Worse still will be be a bumbling fool and lead the Empire into Socialist Global slavery?
It sure looks that way.

Update: 7-5-23

The Big problem New Zealand has is that one of Comrade Jacinda Ardern’s most treasonous actions was to alienate New Zealand from the ANZUS alliance, preferring to snuggle up the the Chinese Dragon.
In fact the previous National Party Government…. Blinded by truck loads of Yuan had already moved us in this same direction… putting us more and more into economic dependence with this Demonic Power.
This is frightening stuff!
Despite my fears about Charles, with all the subversive voices echoing around the globe demanding apologies for colonization, and polls that claim nations don’t want Charles as their monarch, I do believe maintaining the Commonwealth is in New Zealand’s best interests as we are militarily weak, thus our only protection from being swallowed up by the likes of China is in having close mutual bonds with more powerful allies of which Great Britain and fellow Commonwealth countries like Australia are vital.

This is much to be preferred than becoming a Vassal of The Chinese Communist Party.

Long Live the King!

TIM WIKIRIWHI’S SUBMISSION TO THE NEW ZEALAND GOVERNMENT’S CONSTITUTIONAL REVIEW. 2013

THE MOTHER OF INVENTION?

Damien Grant: Things get done because of agitators and advocates… (and the Woke Left work harder than we Freedom advocates do) Stuff Article.

Damien Grant: “Our country is better because there are those advocating for, and against, things that they passionately believe in or are opposed to.”

Check out Damien Grant’s latest opinion piece. Link below. But first a few Wikiriwhi musings.

IMO Damien is probably New Zealand best freedom orientated political commentator who gets footage in the mainstream media, even though he often says things that get up my nose.
He is definitely an advocate of less government, yet frames his articles in such a way that his personal proclivity is not punching Fascists and Commies in the face… and that is why he gets published in the mainstream when few other Liberty minded people do.
Via his style he is able to squeeze in some very important Libertarian takes on thorny issues that otherwise never reach the public discourse, because he splices them seamlessly within the cloth that otherwise might appear to be congratulating the successes of the advocates of Totalitarianism (and it is an objective fact that Woke Far left activism is kicking arse and making us freedom advocates look like Chumps!).

Today’s article (link below) is a perfect example of this strategy.
It may be painful to read… but it’s 100% true… or at least 95% true.
Though in no way can it be said that Damien is an Anti-vaxxer, I don’t think it is a coincidence he penned this article now… after the Big Propaganda piece ‘Boiling Point’ much lauded by those who hate the Anti-covid lockdown protesters just dropped the other day.
IMO this is Damien’s stealthy impartial way of defending that historic and righteous protest… in principle.

The topic is participating in our nations democracy. Grant makes no mention as to why our particular brand of Democracy makes being ceaselessly active far more critical than it otherwise would be if we had an enlightened ever vigilant Liberty loving population who prided themselves on self-reliance, and an iron clad constitution that kept meddlesome power mad totalitarians in fetters.
Oh what such a blessed state of affairs that would be!
New Zealand was once a strong self-reliant population… the envy of the world… yet we have lost this and become a nation of woke sheeple begging for safe spaces and hand outs.
We should sit in sackcloth and ashes.
We have become consumed with envy. Men have become effeminate from decades of ease.
Our system of government… the unconstrained arbitrary powers of our parliament means none of our rights, liberties, or property are secure. We are being bleed dry via taxes. We are treated like rats in social experiments. Our Lives count for zero. We are muzzled. Our kids are brainwashed in State schools. And the ether is thick with mainstream NWO agenda driven propaganda so that the fools now beg for their own enslavement.
Any hysteria, or trend can and does move parliament to act rashly and swing a club.
When seeking to prevent any constitutional restraints being put on parliament Margert Wilson once called the status quo ‘Our wonderfully fluid system’… yeah right!
Wonderful for meddlesome radical Ideologues!
Things are not looking good.
Should we throw away our rifles and run for the coast?
That may look like a tempting proposition to some.

Not this Maori! “The Arawa have 8 Breaths!”.
Better to die facing the enemy than with a spear in the back.

Things being as they are we Liberty minded, pro equality advocates need to lift our game… and be tireless and resolved in working for our treasured values and ideals.
Freedom and justice depend on it.
We cannot falter.
We cannot retire. esp given our values and Ideals are in peril.
We must do what we can to our final breath…
And we must maintain our dignity and spirit… conducting ourselves honorably… even when our adversaries fight dirty… such as using Cancel culture, deplatforming, etc.
Otherwise what will our legacy be?
The generation that quit, and let freedom slip away.
We have a mountain to conquer.
Lets get to it!

Damien Grant says….
“…If you, like me, have a strong set of opinions on how our country should be run, there are ways to achieve this without waiting for the cumbersome, protracted and often ineffective electoral system. This is even more so given the atrophying membership of political parties.
The environmental movement provides an excellent demonstration of how ideas combined with determined advocacy has impacted both government policy, as well as the personal choices of individuals.

By contrast, those with a conservative and free-market agenda have not been as effective. The high-watermark for free-markets was the late 1980s and early 1990s….”

Massad Ayoob: “The Bad Ass Of Self-defense.” + Commentary on Civil Unrest and the Great Reset.

Please share this post.

“Massad F. Ayoob (born July 20, 1948) is an American firearms and self-defense instructor. He has taught police techniques and civilian self-defense to both law enforcement officers and private citizens since 1974. He was the director of the Lethal Force Institute in Concord, New Hampshire, from 1981 to 2009, and now operates his own company.[1] Ayoob has appeared as an expert witness in several trials. He served as a part-time police officer in New Hampshire since 1972 and retired in 2017 with the rank of Captain from the Grantham, New Hampshire, police department.[2] On September 30th 2020, Ayoob was named president[3] of the Second Amendment Foundation. His nickname is “the bad ass of self-defense.”

Ayoob has authored several books and more than 1,000 articles on firearms, combat techniques, self-defense, and legal issues, and has served in an editorial capacity for Guns Magazine, American Handgunner, Gun Week, Guns & Ammo and Combat Handguns. Since 1995, he has written self-defense and firearms related articles for Backwoods Home Magazine. He also has a featured segment on the television show Personal Defense TV, which is broadcast on the Sportsman Channel in the US.

Ayoob has appeared in the courtroom as a testifying police officer, expert witness, and police prosecutor. Ayoob is believed to be the only non-attorney to serve as Vice Chairman of the Forensic Evidence Committee of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL), a position he formerly held.His course for attorneys, titled “The Management of the Lethal Force/Deadly Weapons Case”, was, according to Jeffrey Weiner: “the best course for everything you need to know but are never taught in law school.”

I have only just become aware of the work of Massad Ayoob…. a third generation American of Syrian ancestry… Expert and instructor on firearms, defender of the Second Amendment.
This guy speaks with an air of authority, and a depth of wisdom on matters of gun safety and Law that in my limited opinion has few peers.
Having watched several conversational You Tube videos I was very impressed… for example his videos discussing ‘Mob violence’ and The Kyle Rittenhouse trial (Below).

Massad Ayoob’s opinion about the Kyle Rittenhouse trial – Critical Mas episode 22

It must be remembered that Ayoob speaks from ‘the US Legal perspective’ which varies from State to State and from my home country New Zealand’s Legal system.

Given the current Civil Unrest that has been purposefully orchestrated in US cities by the George Soros/ Democrat funded Criminal organisations posing as ‘Protest movements’ for the sake of destabilizing their society (and especially to blacken Trumps otherwise spectacular Presidency) … the destruction, violence, murder, and chaos the ensued… and what transpired with regards to Kyle Rittenhouse in the midst of all this obviously stimulated Ayoob’s commentary on these related subjects, and what a wealth of insight and good advice he proffers!
Not only on the legalities that saw Rittenhouse being acquitted of any wrongdoing, but also on the nuances of being in a situation where there is Mob violence occurring… how best to handle your self defense in that situation.
Avoiding the cesspool… He made no personal commentary on the politics of these events.

Watching Ayoob Videos we can see he certainly is no ‘Whack Anti-Police Gun Lunatic’ … much of his advice seeks to de-escalate any tensions when interactions occur between Gun owners and Police (for example when you get a knock at the door at 3am in the morning… or when you have a firearm and are pulled over).
He promotes respect and understanding… and speaks from first hand experience seeking peaceful outcomes.

That is about all I have to say about my impressions of this self defense firearms expert.
I will watch more of his instructional videos and commentary.

I made this Blog not only to inform others about this man’s important work, but also to serve as a ‘Who’s who reference for important Libertarians and Conservatives here at Eternal Vigilance Blog.

Postscript: Guns, Civil Unrest, and the Globalist Agenda.

The following ruminations I thought best to add as a postscript given they are my thoughts that should not be inferred to have anything to do with Massad Ayoob’s personal beliefs about the state of the world… of which I have no idea.

New Zealand needs our own ‘Second Amendment’.
This became esp obvious with regards to the Christchurch Terror attack and the Governments Jackbooted response.
Ardern exploited the attack as an opportunity to push her anti-gun population disarmament agenda.

Self Defense and Gun Laws are matters of great importance to the Libertarian ideology of a Free society… which are at complete variance from the Socialist Totalitarian Police State in which Tyranny reigns unchecked upon a defenseless and subjugated slave and brainwashed population who believe their Prison walls are keeping them safe.

New Zealanders do ‘technically’ have the legal right to self defense yet it is very nuanced and we don’t have the legal right as citizens to own pistols for self-defence.
As a Libertarian I advocate for Law reform to recognise our just right to do so yet we have a Government, and Police force, and social conditioned Sheepish population that are antagonistic to this legitimate right being recognised in Law… so I have no delusions about the Nil prospects of this law reform happening any time soon.
Keep this in mind when we contemplate how defenseless this policy left the victims of Brenton Tarrant in his Barbaric Massacres at the Christchurch Mosques in 2018.
I made this point as I prepared to deliver an oral submission to the Government inquiry into how this atrocity occurred and what could be done to prevent such a thing happening again… yet Bizarrely… having initially received the invitation to speak… They failed to inform me of a place and time to appear… so my argument that was founded upon Bearing arms for self defense was not herd in the public hearing.
The Ardern Reigime and Police had always sought to confiscate Guns from Law abiding New Zealanders and reduce their legal rights… and to pseudo-justify this approach… the last thing they wanted is to face open reasoned criticism against their oppressive agenda.

I had already made a written submission that was ‘supposedly considered’ and put into the public record.

All I could do is put my undelivered oral submission onto ‘Eternal Vigilance Blog’ and share it on social media.

Read: TIM WIKIRIWHI. THE RIGHT TO SELF DEFENSE: MY (UNDELIVERED) ORAL SUBMISSION TO THE NEW ZEALAND COMMITTEE OF THE ARMS (PROHIBITED FIREARMS, MAGAZINES, AND PARTS) AMENDMENT BILL APRIL 2019

IMO it is conspiracy fact… an open secret spoken out loud and at the same time denied… that the Globalist Cabal of Schwab/ Soros Socialist minions are seeking to overthrow Western democracies and install their New World Order and we can see a whole raft of suicidal policies being enacted by these traitors against the best interests of their own peoples.

The madness of their policies is starting to cause massive pains and social backlash… The Truckers protest in Cannada, The Farmers rebellion in the Netherlands, and the *Real insurrection* in Shri Lanka. Even Brexit can be seen in this light.

The Globalists openly admit their ‘Great Reset’ will cause big pain to populations around the Globe and in anticipation of this they have been busy Politicising and Militarising Police forces and brainwashing them into suppressing the legitimate Democratic Rights of their people to Publicly speak, to rally for protests, etc and I believe to consider anti-Globalist sentiments as being ‘a high risk and dangerous source of Domestic terrorism’… setting up the rationale for arresting and suppressing dissent… kinda like ‘Enemies of the State’ getting rounded up in North Korea… China… only this is being promoted now in the once Freer West.

The Sun is setting fast upon the West…. to the degree that in the space of a few years there has become a Massive push against Free speech, and the deplatforming of anyone and everyone who dares critisise the Far left Globalist agenda… or to openly discuss the activities of George Soros Just to hold such opinions as I have expressed above is almost illegal.
You get put on a ‘Watch list’ for expressing such things… The government now has powerful Tech that can ‘insure’ ‘misinformation’ does not reach the masses via the internet.

In New Zealand the media is bought and paid for by the Ardern Regime and she tells the sheeple her government must be their ‘single source of truth’
All this is designed to keep as many sheeple wallowing in indifference while these traitors sell out our country right in front of them… and most of all they seek to spook the useful idiots into thinking the disarmament of the population is for their own safety rather than what it really is… as it has always historically been… a precursor to the establishment of Brutal tyrannies… and the enslavement of whole populations… this is the chief reason why the US Democrats are hell bent to abolish the Second amendment…to render Americans incapable of standing up to their oppressive regime… remember that was the fundamental reason why the Founding Fathers wrote the 2nd Amendment to Keep Americans Free from tyranny by their own government… and it was penned into the founding document of the United States… The Declaration of Independence… the peoples right to overthrow oppressive government.

The Second Amendment stands firmly in the way of The Globalist New World Order because it ensures the People have some means of self defense against being subjugated.

I personally believe the greatest power we the people have is Passive resistance and peaceful civil disobedience (No rioting… No Violence of any sort)… and that is what I advocate for… while we are able to do so.

James Cowan’s History ‘The New Zealand Wars’ published in 1922-23. Commentary by Maori Libertarian Tim Wikiriwhi. Part 1. Objectivity: From what perspective did Cowan write his history of the Wars?


Never truer words have been spoken. The future of our children depends upon our generation defeating the evil lies of those who would distort the history of our nation for their own corrupt ends.

To be edited…

Why am I bothering to write a commentary on the Historical writings of James Cowan?

I have loved reading and the subject of history from my fifth birthday when my grandparents bought me a big fat illustrated history of the world.
Primarily I have a passion for history.. for its own sake…to educate myself.

Having grown up it was inevitable that I should loose my childhood innocence… my eyes have been opened to the world of political intrigues. The lust for unearned wealth and to gain unjust Power are a re-occurrent theme throughout human history… ubiquitous to all times, places… and races.

There are no noble savages.

And yet… amazingly enough… there is a delicate… faltering… thread of progress that has raised many modern people out of squalor and misery and given them standards of living barely dreamt about in past ages.
The defense of the values and ideals which underpin Human betterment are a sacred duty to those of us who have seen the light.
We must be eternally vigilant and on guard for the forces of darkness… certain lobby groups… and self interested parties …. motivated by envy and greed are ceaseless in their conspiracies to destroy… for rapine… and plunder… and to accrue political power.

History declares evil has no Racial preference. Marxist Rebel and Former President of Zimbabwe Robert Mugabe became one of the most brutal and wealthiest men on Earth while his country writhed in despair. He came to power and was supposed to be the savior of Black Zimbabweans from ‘White Supremacy’.
All he brought was greater misery… and greater racism.

It must be noted that in no way has New Zealand ever resembled Rhodesia… and yet that is how the Far left racist radicals have sort to portray the colonisation of New Zealand.
In their use of Marxist ideology… they are one and the same as Mugabe.
They seek to destroy western civilisation and accrue power for themselves.
And they seek to deceive the Fools by appearing to champion noble causes and ideals…
History proper exposes their lies and methods.

Understand this.
**********

Applying this to what is currently afoot here in New Zealand the far left Radicals seek to distort history by asserting that Maori did not cede sovereignty via the treaty of Waitangi, and accuse British colonials as invading these islands with the express purpose of annihilating the ‘indigenous’ [sic] population, and to divest them of their land. This is their asserted ‘grievance’ that asserts the British Crown and subsequent colonial government did not honour the terms of the Treaty of Waitangi… and that these transgressions that are said to have occurred over 150 years ago… need to be recompensed today.
What they seek to establish and perpetuate is a racially divided nation.
It must be asked… given the treaty grievance industry funnels billions of taxpayer dollars into tribal interests… and grants them undemocratic powers… Whom is really trying to rob and subjugate whom?

If you have a caring heart… I ask have you ever been deceived by professional beggars?
Chumps are born every day. Shysters know this.

******
Lets look at what the history books say and evaluate their authenticity.

How did the historian James Cowan view the collonisation of New Zealand?

This commentary series on James Cowan’s two volumes ‘The New Zealand Wars’ is part of my ongoing investigations into New Zealand history with regards to old world Maori culture, European colonisation, and modern day far left radical ideology and politics which have been progressively rammed down the throats of New Zealanders over the past 50 years.

It is my contention that these modern political doctrines are grotesque fabrications, perpetrating frauds and extortions, and wreaking havoc and social unrest in our once blessed nation.
They rely on ignorance and the falsification of history.
In these ambitions they display the common base traits of the dark side of humanity.

I realise these are heavy assertions.
Can I vindicate my positions?
I believe I can, because my historical perspective about the colonisation of New Zealand was the conservative position not too many decades ago… not radical by any means… before the subversive Marxist doctrines took hold.
These doctrines were not drawn from concrete facts but specifically formulated to cause strife and unrest.
To divide and conquer.
And they have to a large extent been successful in their subversion.
Though still the greater percentage of New Zealanders find their claims incredulous… none the less in academia and Political circles their lies have become ‘Officially sanctioned’.
I am seeking to confront these charlatans head on… with the facts!
The great lie they are peddling is to deceive the nation that it is my Anti-Grievance and Anti-Separatist leanings that ought to be seen as radical and misguided.
They would have you believe that my striving for Constitutional Racal equality before the law… is somehow… racist!

Contemplate that.

*******

What is the historical truth about the European colonisation of New Zealand?
This post is my introduction to this study of Cowan’s important publications.
At the time of writing this I am currently only about 20% of the way through reading volume 1.
By the end of writing my commentary, I hope to have given many proofs taken from Cowan, that affirm the correctness of my personal position which is a forthright repudiation of Modern Treaty grievance and Apartheid and the lies they are founded upon.

Will Cowan’s account vindicate my perspective?
Even if they do… do his opinions have any weight?
Why should we trust him?
In studying his accounts to what degree will my current views be further entrenched or be confronted with facts that demand contrition and correction on my part?
It is always a good thing to stand corrected… it is a positive good, and yet the corrupt detest facts that contradict their prejudices.
I will consciously resist the urge to overlook uncomfortable facts. Indeed these are opportunities to grow deeper understandings.
Having read about 10% (of both volumes) already he has presented me with many justifications… and challenges.
These will make for interesting commentary in future posts.
I am already learning much… and look forward to reading more.

Capitan Cook.

Read a short biography of James Cowan here.
Quote:
” James Cowan (1870–1943) grew up on Waikato land confiscated from Māori. The family farm included part of the Ōrākau battlefield.

It was here that Rewi Maniapoto, when asked to surrender, had famously told the British that he would fight on ‘forever and ever’ (‘Ka whawhai tonu mātou, Āke! Āke! Āke!’). Cowan’s lifelong fascination with colonial history grew out of his childhood experiences.

During the first decades of the 20th century Cowan wrote more than 30 books and hundreds of articles on New Zealand history, Māori ethnography and travel. He read widely, and did much to shape the way New Zealanders viewed their past.

He is best known for the two-volume The New Zealand Wars: a history of the Maori campaigns and the pioneering period (1922–23). Until relatively recently this was the definitive account of the New Zealand Wars, and remains a classic. It is particularly notable for his use of both Māori and European oral sources. Cowan died in 1943.”

We are concerning ourselves with his two volumes on the Rebellions.
The term ‘Rebellions’ is more accurate than the term ‘Wars’ as calling these wars does not correctly identify the type and nature of the disputes.

We can glean a lot about Cowan from that very concise statement.
He grew up in the decades following the Waikato war, and lived among Waikato Maori… at the heart of the Kingite struggle, and saw the defeated Rebels as heroic warriors.
From the first chapters this disposition is evident in his writing yet he adds some balance by noting the heroism of such men as Governor Grey.
He is generous with his approbations on both sides of the disputes.
So far so good!

With respect to Rewi Mainiapoto, I hope to write a post on him in due course when Cowan deals with the Kingites. The romanticism of our day grossly distorts the true nature of the conflicts by excessive lionisation of the murderous savage rebels, and villainising the heroic colonials who valiantly thwarted the Rebels genocidal ambitions. In the end Rewi Maniapoto would recant his part in taking up arms… having despised the council of a Chiefly ally who predicted the sorry outcome that would befall the rebels.

The slant that Romanticises those who advocated for violence, can be seen in the Maniapoto quotation above.
From my own studies it is rare indeed to encounter any writer from the beginning who did not to some degree evidence this embellished perspective.
The tendency almost universally favors the Rebels… which is the very opposite of what modern revisionists claim… ie they insist that history has been unfair to them, and that Maori have been the victim of 150+ years of systematic ‘White supremacist’ indoctrination.
This is utterly false.
The truth is Pakeha like Cowan grew up with Maori friends and neigbours and did not harbour Racist ideals, or look down upon them… this is evident in the contemporary records… and was evident in the very nature of New Zealand society until the Far Left Racist radical separatists started their toxic political campaign in the early 1970s.
Getting back to Cowan’s accounts of the conflicts…
Myself… as a person who has read a decent amount of classic War histories such as Herodotus’s account of Leonidas and the 300 at Thermopile , The works of Xenophon, Josephus, and much more I affirm Cowan’s writing style as being on a par with these…. first rate and on this basis alone we can appreciate why he is held in high regard.
It is the type of writing style that propagates a love of history in youth and adults alike.
Cowan has been a chief inspiration for many New Zealand historians ever since.
It helps that New Zealand’s birth is part of an heroic and contentious age.
It was a time when Men were really ‘Great’.
Cowan states that our history is as rich in character and exploits as the histories of many other Western nations and his writing style and attention to details vindicates this claim.

*******

James Cowan is considered by many the foremost historian on the series of Maori Rebellions that occurred in the decades following the Treaty of Waitangi in which British Sovereignty was established.
I want to examine his work and see if such pre-eminence granted him in this subject is well founded, or not?
I am chiefly concerned about objective truth… not writing style.
How much authority and truthfulness ought to be justly ascribed to his writings?

This is not simply a matter of ‘taste’… if he agrees with me he is ‘right’… if he disagrees with me… he is ‘wrong’.
There is too much at stake to leave history in a fog of ambiguity… and simply a matter of subjective opinion.
If you love history proper what matters is *Truth*.
What matters is doing justice to history.

We need to evaluate Cowan’s objectivity and power to reach legitimate conclusions.
We must distinguish what are recorded statements that were spoken by the people involved from mere speculations about their motives that really belong to the writer… not the subject.
This temper is essential if any hope of sifting the wheat from the chaff is to be achieved.

How ought we to consider his personal opinions, insights, and embellishments he uses to add colour to bare Objective facts, and by which we can perceive his leanings?
Does Cowan evidence gross ‘Euro-centric propensities’? or any other skew that needs to be appreciated when evaluating his works?

How fairly does Cowan treat the character of the various actors he is writing about?

These are the sorts of questions that shall be at the forefront of my study.

I will also be looking to clarify the root causes of the Rebellions.

According to Cowan… what were in his view the main chief causes for the various outbreaks of hostilities?

These rebellions were in breach of the Treaty and a challenge to British Sovereignty.

Cowan speaks of this fundamental point from the beginning… eg Regarding Hekes Rebellion at Russell …Chapter 5 Titled ‘The first British march inland’ … Cowan states…

” On the 27th April an expedition totaling 470 officers and men under Lieut-Colonel Hulme, of the “Slains Castle,” the “Velocity.” and the schooner “Aurora,” with the object of re-establishing the Queens Soverignty at Kororareka and carrying the war into the enemies country.”…

The paramount importance of this fact stands in stark contrast to the patent falsehoods and denials of modern revisionists that Maori like Heke were in Rebellion to the sovereignty which had been ceded to the British Crown at Waitangi in 1840.
Instead they pedal the modern innovation of ‘co governance’ and ‘Treaty partnership’.


Chief Tamati Waka Nene.

I would never suggest that British governance of the day (nor any government anywhere) was not without it’s flaws… yet from the facts of recorded history and logic we see it was ‘Old world’ Tribalistic Maori Like Heke who from self interest butted heads with the legitimate British authority.

Can anyone looking back be surprised that such disputes would arise simply by the nature of the situation???
Given all factors and conditions of the times these things were virtually inevitable!
There was no malicious intent on the part of the newly established British rule to provoke hostilities from Ngapuhi.
Violence was initiated by Heke… yet most of the Nagapuhi Chiefs supported the Governor… esp Tamati Waka Nene who fought against Heke on the side of the Colonial Governor.

The hypocrisy of the Modern Revisionist is that they play the victim… when in reality they themselves are distorting history for political advantage and financial gain and the expense of the rest of New Zealanders. Their Racism and Political Corruption is patent… and yet we are not allowed to say as much. Broadcasters, and Public figures get deplatformed when ever they dare to challenge the foundations of the new Race based power structure.

With the establishment of British rule via the Treaty upon a land in which Chiefs were used to governing their own affairs… we should not be surprised that discontent and suspicions arose… for that was the norm between Hapu… and Iwi, and to transition from that state of Anarchy to building *A Nation* whereby the Law prevails rather than the Taiaha would take time.. and big changes.

These changes were implicit in the establishment of British rule.
The anarchy of inter-Tribal warfare… esp now the Tribes all had muskets… could not be tolerated in a civil society… and it was expressly for the sake of ending the Bloody tribal wars that the Maori Chiefs invited the British crown to establish the rule of Law.

It had nothing to do with ‘White racism’ using their terrible ‘technological advantages’ to plan and execute a Holocaust upon the indigenous population… to exterminate them and take their lands.


Hone (John) Heke.

Each major outbreak of rebellion was of course the result of some contentious issue… the first one mentioned in Cowan’s works is the rebellion of Hone (John) Heke at Russell (Kororaeka) in 1845… the chief cause of which being newly establish heavy Customs duties being imposed on trade goods drove away traffic from the port.
The imposition of these customs duties (1841) was obviously an attempt by the Governor to defray costs of running the colony (established by Te Tiriti O Waitangi in 1840) from the British Crown.
It is an interesting lesion in economics that raising heavy taxes is very bad for trade and the prosperity of any economy.
Pre-treaty Russell was the key port in New Zealand. Ngapuhi Chiefs like Heke had been making a lot of money from the shipping and trade that visited the Bay of Islands in those times and had even levied their own ‘Port dues’ on every ship, and they also traded in prostitution, and ship’s stores to whalers.

More on Heke will be forthcoming (next chapter of my commentary), it suffices for now to mention that after the Treaty and the establishment of other centers of settlement and industry around the country… out of reach of the Governors ability to enforce tariffs the post-treaty imposition of Customs duties in the Bay of Islands put trade into decline and this adversely affected Hone Heke’s ‘Business’ and income.
Read about this in Chapter 3, pages 16,17.

Hence Heke was not happy about how things were unfolding after the treaty… and despite the fact that he had been partly civilized and educated at Henry Williams Mission Station, being still at heart a wild Cannibal Maori Warrior Chief, he chose to deal with this situation the ‘traditional way’ Maori Warrior Chiefs took care of ‘problems’… by taking up arms.

The rebellions were power struggles… a coming to terms with the new order, yet contrary to the politically manufactured assertions of the Modern revisionist of our times, there was no overt nefarious plot by Pakeha… no overt bad faith or willful breaches of the Treaty involved on their part.


‘Good’ Governor Grey. Respected by all including the first ‘Maori King’ Potatau.

Mistakes were made and sometime the curcumstances were beyond control yet one of the spectacular facts about the Birth of New Zealand as a Nation was that it happened during the time of enlightenment ideals.
Slavery had been abolished in the British empire.
The Treaty recognised the rights of All New Zealanders as Equals… British Subjects… including Maori.
And New Zealand was fortunate to have the highest caliber Statemen like ‘Good’ Governor George Grey at the helm during its birth pangs.

Was there no greed?
Was there no weasel business dealings?
It would be stupefyingly silly to pretend that instances of chicanery did not occur culpability being on either side… for such is sadly human nature… and yet it is a bare face lie to assert that the Colonisation of New Zealand by Europeans was an invasion based upon deception… and that it involved systematic Racist oppression of Maori.

We should not be surprised that some chiefs took it upon themselves to rebel when things went in directions that did not satisfy their self interest.

Such rebellion is completely understandable given the weak state of the governing power of young colony, the short passage of time that had elapsed from the signing of the Treaty, and the nature of the Maori Tribal ‘norms’ that still prevailed. Were it not for the Good will of Chiefs like Waka Nene who chose to honour the Treaty and support the Colonial Powers against rebels like Heke… the colony in New Zealand would have been short lived indeed.
Cowan himself makes the point the ongoing settlements of the Pakeha post treaty existed by ‘sufferance’ given the numerical superiority of Maori in the early years.
This means the greater percentage of Maori themselves could see the many advantages the industrious British settlers brought to their shores.

“He who controls the past, controls the future” George Orwell.

Though these wars happened over 150 years ago Far Left Political Radical activists and politicians in recent decades have twisted history into a bludgeon with which to destroy Racial Harmony that had grown up in the years of peace and good will that grew out from peace between the races, an end to tribal anarchy, and the establishment of the rule of Law.

This suffices for the introduction of my commentary on Cowan’s 2 volumes
As I have already stated… I will talk more about Heke’s rebellion in my next post.
I have purposefully made a lot of bold claims in this introduction with the intent of vindicating myself in future posts.
Please challenge me in the comments…
The commentary I have made with respect to this early rebellion in this post serving to illustrate a common theme that would play out in other outbreaks of rebellion… and how the modern Far left Radicals distort the truth.
