I suspect my internet supply is being manipulated by New Zealand Government Cyber Intelligence.

Banksy’s Radar Rat.

Maybe I should not write the following post because it will smack of Alex Jones/ David Ike type overtones… but then again how often have their outrageous claims proven to be on the money?
Far more often than people are willing to admit.

Maybe suggesting Reptiloids have taken control is far fetched, and yet there is something very strange going on with my social media platforms.
I suspect something diabolical.
And I have my reasons.

I am getting virtually zero responses over the past month… I suspect the powers that be have figured out how to throttle my activity so that it reaches nobody.
The similarity to what happened to my Facebook account is stark.
I have been asking people if they are receiving my posts… and get zero responses… for days on end.

Just a month ago I wrote a blogpost extolling how positive things were looking on these alternative Social media sites… there was *growth*, yet almost within the space of a few days… something weird happened…. like someone threw a switch… and my Social media ‘died.’
And I have the numbers… because back in April I reported I was getting on average a new ‘follower’ on gab for every 5 posts (900/186= 4,84).
Today the math is 1300 posts/ 214 followers= 6.07= over a 20% drop!
Things should in theory be getting better… not significantly worse.
And though I don’t have the numbers… things are far worse on Mewe.
I go for days without any interactions, weeks without any contact requests.
What is going on?
I believe there is some sort of ‘filtering’ going on targeting Gab and Mewe.
Have they been ‘flagged’ by our Woke Government as Right wing extremist sites?
Have I personally been flagged for suppression because of my outspoken views and criticism of the Woke agenda?
Do the Tech Spies of Woke governments about the Globe Taylor make strategies to attack independent voices?
Highly likely given the Machiavellian bents of the Ardern regime.
They now have both the Tech and the will to do this.

I’m not a tech head so I don’t have a clue how such things might be achieved… a mysterious algorithm pinned to my IP?
Way above my pay grade.

Anyone who does not live under a rock knows that governments about the globe have been working night and day to control all information on the net.
They are busy legislating themselves power not only to censor people, but also power to punish, and jail citizens who don’t conform to their dictates and they have been setting up systems and deploying government operatives to create ‘Cyber Security Hubs’ to monitor and control the internet… virtually putting an end to the private exchange of information between ‘Users’.
New Zealand under Ardern has in fact been accelerating the governments powers in this domain using the Christchurch Terror attack as justification for the expansion of their Police State which is fundamentally a Surveillance State… The all seeing eye.

These are facts… not paranoid delusions.

Even before that horrific event, specific legislation already existed which allows Spies like the GCSB to target ‘individuals of interest’.
What criteria they employ in making a decision to put a person on their watch list?
The tendency for abuse of power means we should not be surprised if twisting the truth becomes routine… to allow them to deploy against *vocal political opponents and dissenters* rather than real dangerous fanatics.. simply by labeling activists and dissidents as ‘Extremists’, ‘Hateful’, etc.

We know that Obama spied on the Trump campaign… do you seriously believe New Zealand politicians walk a higher path than their American counterparts?
History proves otherwise.


Now when I was a facebook addict and was getting censored and thrown in Facebook jail for Politically incorrect wrong think, there was no need to suspect that Ardern Spooks were at work because we were all well aware that Facebook itself was heavily prejudiced in favour of Globalist socialism and were explicit in their declarations about censorship and deplatforming the most vocal dissenters who attacked the Woke agenda.
Yet it was there first that I began to notice a completely new way in which activists like myself were being censored… not by overt means… instead by secret ‘suffocation’… our posts simply were not reaching any of our friends or contacts…. we were speaking to the void.

After Facebook was party to the US election fraud that helped install the corrupt Joe Biden, I could no longer justify my ongoing presence on such a vile and corrupt platform and so I left and joined Mewe and Gab.



Things started off very well… these platforms though smaller were starting to hum.
But recently I have noticed it’s like some invisible hand has put the breaks on my Social media activity.
It is deja vu.
I have seen this ‘suffocation’ of my Social media reach before… yet this time I suspect it is not the platforms themselves doing this.
In fact I believe these alternative non-woke platforms are themselves coming under attack by powers that seek their destruction.
Have they come under duress to implement woke agenda censorship without informing their customers?
I believe I am witnessing some sort of intensification of Government intervention of the flow of information.
They have been investing millions… probably hundreds of millions on new tech hardware and software.
Bringing all this cyber weaponry online I suspect they can now not only covertly eavesdrop on private activity, but also suppress voices who say things the government wants to suppress.
The government under John Key already got caught abusing their powers with respect to spying with the ‘Dotcom Saga’, and it is my opinion that Jacinda Ardern has far more tyrannical inclinations and ambitions than John Key ever did.
Jacinda Ardern is in my opinion New Zealand’s worst, and most dangerous Prime minister in our nations history.
I believe she is a specially groomed and hand picked Globalist.
Propaganda is her specialty, and she has virtually our entire parliament eating out of her hand… giving her the power to destroy the freedom ,prosperity, and undermine the values that made our country spectacular.

The subject matter of this Blogpost is of the type of thinking the Government does not want the Sheeple to contemplate or discuss.
I freely admit that I have no proof, and only my own intuition that my internet is being restricted by the government.
How does an ordinary person investigate or ‘get proof’ of such cloak and dagger type intrigues?
It was only by chance that Tech Guru Kim Dotcom became suspicious that there was ‘funny business’ going on with his internet because he played online games at world class levels and noticed his internet speed were lagging for some ‘odd’ reason. He discovered the government were in fact involved in devious and illegal tampering with his internet, which when it all came out in the wash John Key was forced to ‘Deny any knowledge’ of what the Spy department under his direct control was doing, and to offer a public apology to Dotcom.

Such apologies are worthless, esp when we see the result was not to slap greater controls on the GCSB but reward them with greater power!
The Government decided to pseudo-legitimise future devious GCSB activities and violations our privacy by writing new amendments that grant them license to do it.

Read: New Zealand Spying Law Passes Allowing Surveillance Of Citizens.

Speaking of the new powers government granted unto itself DotCom said “This will be the birth of a surveillance state in New Zealand,”

Has my name been added to some sort of spy ‘watch list’ for dangerous extremists?
Are the government really using their powerful cyber weaponry to suffocate my political activist outreach?
I have only my suspicions to go on.
I am here ‘Thinking out loud’, seeking to raise these questions for my people to consider with me.
I personally do not have the time or resources to ‘investigate’ what is going on with my Social media, and so I can only speculate.
The Dotcom saga does serve as an eye opener and precedent about New Zealand Governments penchant to abuse their powers.
Now with increased powers, under Comrade Ardern… in the Post-Christchurch atrocity era the political impetus to spy, censor, suppress, criminalise, punish activists and individuals who oppose themselves to the powers that be has been multiplied exponentially… and by it’s insidious nature… spying is purposefully secretive and hidden… and devious.
The justification is always claimed such activities are for the greater public good.

What is interesting to note is that even with these greater powers Brenton Tarrant still slipped past the GCSB, fooled the Police, and manage to commit his heinous crime.
So in reality none of this stuff works to make our country safer from real terrorist treats, it only serves to empower the State to trample underfoot the rights of New Zealand citizens.

Post Christchurch attack Comrade Ardern has publicly spoken at International Committees on ‘Internet Safety’ about gaining the power to detect and shut down live feeds that have characteristics they want to censor.
This ‘initiative’ goes by the name of ‘The Christchurch call’ and makes political capital from the public horror of the event to massively expand government powers over the internet.

Read NZ government Christchurch Call makes significant progress

I speculate that Government Tech Hubs now have formidable tech at their fingertips, with minimal oversite.
They will employ politically vetted operators not merely able to spy, but also to isolate individual internet users.
I suspect they now have the power to effectively put ‘targets’ in ‘virtual jail’ without them even being aware of it… that is until you figure out you have been isolated from your contacts and groups.
By doing this they are effectively rendering my online activism dead in the water…. and when you appreciate that I am very much a dissident against the current regime, critical of it’s legitimacy (Election fraud), critical of its determination to destroy free speech, and pretty much critical of all of the Governments key pillars for their overall agenda, this causes me to think that the Governments Internet spies have put me on their watch list and have somehow ‘taken over’ my internet… rerouting my activity through their systems and using some sort of system to silence me. .. you monitor me…. to look for any sort of comments or posts that might be useful to building a case against me to cease all my work, shut down my Blog, and put me in *Actual jail.*
This is where socialism leads… it does not tolerate political opposition, but creates the crime of ‘Enemy of the State*… because of *wrong think*.

Note: Sean Plunket has since been ‘Deplatformed’ from Radio due to attacks by the Woke.

Some people may think that this is just silly paranoia…. I personally think it is naïve not to understand what the State is up to with respect to Internet surveillance and fanatical zeal to control the flow of information under the guise of gaining ‘intel’ on ‘possible extremism’… which is simply their convenient excuse to violate personal privacy and spy on dissidents like myself.
And how else do you explain that all of a sudden your growing Social media activity dies?

As I am not a Tech head, I am personally at a loss as to how We the people might work to get back our internet freedom and privacy… despite the implementation of tyrannical laws, there still could be legal avenues… this blog post is simply about raising the alarm.
Getting people to think about the loss of liberty and privacy… and ask themselves what is the government really up to?

Covid 19 has also been another gigantic excuse for governments to rob populations of their rights and expand their Police States.
Protests against lockdowns, collapsing economies, fears about untested experimental vaccines has also been a monumental impetus for tyrannical leaders to try and censor dissident information reaching the general public. In many nations public protests have been banned. Big Sister Jacinda Ardern has also banked heavily upon the New Zealand Public submitting to mass vaccination and with that in mind suppressing contrary opinions about the safety of the vaccines… or the wisdom of her lockdown policies is without doubt high on her priority list.
You can add these ‘thought crimes’ to the list of reasons why I suspect that I… as one of New Zealand’s most vocal Libertarians probably am under the gaze of the Evil Eye.
‘Most caring and transparent government eva? YEAH RIGHT!

People whop seldom engage in critisism of the Woke agenda will no doubt be left to their sheepish activities, yet I would not be surprised to find out that other outspoken activists have also noticed something fishy is going on with respect to their internet outreach… viewership way down of videos, etc.

Please share my Blogposts so that they actually reach the public.

Obama’s evil minions still entrenched. Revenge of the Deep State: Andrew Napolitano


Read what Andrew Napolitano has to say about the ‘Revenge of the Deep State’….

“Liberty is rarely lost overnight. The wall of tyranny often begins with benign building blocks of safety — each one lying on top of a predecessor — eventually collectively constituting an impediment to the exercise of free choices by free people, often not even recognized until it is too late.”

Here is the back story.

In the pre-Revolutionary era, British courts in London secretly issued general warrants to British government agents in America. The warrants were not based on any probable cause of crime or individual articulable suspicion; they did not name the person or thing to be seized or identify the place to be searched. They authorized agents to search where they wished and seize what they found.

The use of general warrants was so offensive to our Colonial ancestors that it whipped up more serious opposition to British rule and support for the revolutionaries than the “no taxation without representation” argument did. And when it came time for Americans to write the Constitution, they prohibited general warrants in the Fourth Amendment, the whole purpose of which was to guarantee the right to be left alone by forcing the government to focus on bad guys and prohibit it from engaging in fishing expeditions. But the fishing expeditions would come.

In 1978, Congress passed the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which was intended to rein in the government spying on Americans that had been unleashed by the Nixon administration. FISA established a secret court and permitted it to issue warrants authorizing spying on agents of foreign governments when physically present in the United States.

People born in foreign countries who are here for benevolent or benign or even evil purposes have the same constitutional protections as those of us born here. That’s because the critical parts of the Constitution that insulate human freedom from the government’s reach protect “persons,” not just citizens. But FISA ignored that…

My Commentary…..

Donald Trump does not enjoy the Loyalty of his own party let alone Loyalty from the Titan Buraucratic Machinery he has inherited from his predecessor Barack Obama, for the simple reason that He does not have the same Agenda as Obama implemented as a sycophant of the Status Quo… and the powers that be.
It is an agenda that Hillary Cinton was supposed to perpetuate.

These are the loathsome critters whom inhabit the Swamp Trump promised he would drain.

Obama and Clinton were merely Cogs in the Machine… There are far Greater vested Interests at work in the world.

Though there are many things not to like about Trump… none the less his successful election campaign has been one of the greatest of Spanners thrown into the gears of the Beast machine… and he has many powerful enemies as a result… both within Government and without.
All the vested Interests whom were growing the power of the State and suppressing the Rights and Liberties of the People.


Possibly the greatest threats Trump poses to the One world Order is his campaign promises to restore American Gun Rights that have been eroded… Guns in the hands of the people poses the greatest hurdle to the security of the Wealth and powers of the Status quo in the face of the coming Gigantic Financial collapse of the American Government.
They want to render ‘the Great unwashed’ powerless.

and secondly by Trumps moves to End the Rampant Pseudo-environmentalism with regards to the Scam of Global warming, and other diabolical United Nations Agendas… such as their persecution of Israel.

I remind Kiwis that it was Radical Green extremists whom had teamed up with the radical Racist extremists in the Urawera ranges and were practicing Murder, assignation, and hurling fire bombs… (Read about that here)

Radical Green Extremists are almost as fanatical about the destruction of Freedom as Isis and Al Qaeda!
So too are many of the Super wealthy… who look down upon us as ‘Useless Eaters’.

On another Front Brexit … Britain seeking to extract themselves from the EU is also of great weight… another return to Unilateral Sovereignty another set back to the One world Socialist Government agenda that will not go unchallenged.

The Wailing from the Millions of Dumbfounded Liberal Dip-shits across the globe has been deafening!
They want a Coup!
They want Trump assassinated!
And remember that *These are the hordes that have Zero scruples* when it comes to committing Violence and other crimes in order to fulfill their political aims.

These are the scum that Love using unchecked democracy to impose their oppressive lunatic policies on everyone yet scream blue murder when democracy fails to deliver the power back into *their hands*.

And the Danger for is very real for Trump and his family, and could Spring for virtually any quarter.
Christians ought to Heed Our Apostle Paul…

“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;

For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.”
(1 Tim 2vs 1,2)

These dynamics expose just how far America has drifted await from it’s foundations.
What is being called ‘the Deep state’ … the 9 to 5 bureaucracy is not supposed to be Party agenda driven… let alone have it’s own, but faithful to the constitution, irrespective whom is elected into office… yet clearly they have been as corrupted by excessive power and over-reach and operate as their own vested interest… just as the Police dont want to end the war on Drugs *because of the loss of Power and revenue this will entail.
Thus the Deep state favors tyrannical executives whom grow the Bureaucracy… and enhance their jurisdictions at the expense of the rights and liberties of the people to whose rights they have sworn to protect, and in virtue of which is the only legitimate function for which they exist at all.
Any reforming President must now content with these powerful vested interests that have been allowed to accrue Un-constitutional powers by a sleepy and gullible population that has foolishly devalued their Rights and liberties and instead have been swindled via Government by Fear, Prejudice, and envy.
And this is extremely dangerous… think of 22 November 1963 in Dallas… 1pm

NAPOLITANO: The right to shoot tyrants, not deer
The Second Amendment is the guarantee of freedom…

The right of the people to keep and bear arms is an extension of the natural right to self-defense and a hallmark of personal sovereignty. It is specifically insulated from governmental interference by the Constitution and has historically been the linchpin of resistance to tyranny. Yet the progressives in both political parties stand ready to use the coercive power of the government to interfere with the exercise of that right by law-abiding persons because of the gross abuse of that right by some crazies in our midst.
When Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence that we are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights, he was marrying the nation at its birth to the ancient principles of the natural law that have animated the Judeo-Christian tradition in the West. Those principles have operated as a brake on all governments that recognize them by enunciating the concept of natural rights.
As we have been created in the image and likeness of God the Father, we are perfectly free just as He is. Thus, the natural law teaches that our freedoms are pre-political and come from our humanity and not from the government. As our humanity is ultimately divine in origin, the government, even by majority vote, cannot morally take natural rights away from us. A natural right is an area of individual human behavior — like thought, speech, worship, travel, self-defense, privacy, ownership and use of property, consensual personal intimacy — immune from government interference and for the exercise of which we don’t need the government’s permission.
The essence of humanity is freedom. Government — whether voted in peacefully or thrust upon us by force — is essentially the negation of freedom. Throughout the history of the world, people have achieved freedom when those in power have begrudgingly given it up. From the assassination of Julius Caesar to King John’s forced signing of the Magna Carta, from the English Civil War to the triumph of the allies at the end of World War II, from the fall of communism to the Arab Spring, governments have permitted so-called nobles and everyday folk to exercise more….

Cannibalising the cannabis vote (Part 2)

The Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party‘s electorate candidates did well in last Saturday’s general election. (See Part 1.) But the ALCP’s share of the party vote was down.

The 2014 GENERAL ELECTION – PRELIMINARY RESULT gives us 0.41% of the party vote. That’s roughly 20% down on 2011’s final result of 0.52%, and pretty much back to where we were in 2008. (But we’re projected to be 0.45% after special votes are counted.)

With cannabis law reform happening in many jurisdictions around the world (e.g., Jamaica, Uruguary, Colorado, Washington) and the “synthetic cannabis” industry derailing itself this year here in New Zealand, cannabis law reform was supposed to have been much more of an election issue. But it wasn’t. So what happened?

Before we get to that, let’s take a look at our party vote performance in previous MMP elections. The ALCP first contested the general election in 1996, which was New Zealands first under the Mixed-Member Proportional system. (See NEW ZEALAND ELECTION RESULTS.)

Year 1996 1999 2002 2005 2008 2011 2014
Percent 1.66 1.10 0.64 0.25 0.41 0.52 0.41

The 1996 general election saw the ALCP’s best party vote result. Subsequently, its vote share steadily declined to an all-time low of 0.25% three elections later in 2005. It’s risen since then, to 0.52% of the party vote in 2011. Last Saturday’s result is a slight dip, but as much as 20% down on 2011’s result nonetheless. How to explain all this?

I think a big part of the explanation is obvious. After 1996 and again after 1999, cannabis law reform voters came to the realisation that a vote for the ALCP was a “wasted” vote. Wasted in the sense that it was extremely unlikely that the ALCP would ever reach the 5% threshold and have MPs enter Parliament. Nonetheless, a vote for the ALCP is worthwhile as a protest vote, worthwhile because protesting is worthwhile and it’s absolutely clear what AlCP voters are protesting about: cannabis prohibition.

But cannabis law reformers want more than just to protest, they also want to effect change. And I think another part of the explanation of the decline in the ALCP’s party vote share in 2002 and 2005 is that the cannabis vote was cannibalised by the Green Party. In 1996 Nandor Tanczos and Metiria Turei were candidates on the ALCP’s list. In 1999 Nandor Tanczos was on the Green Party’s list and entered Parliament. By 2002 it was obvious to cannabis law reform voters that in the dreadlocked skateboarding Rastafarian MP the CLR cause had a champion in Parliament, and in 2002 Nandor Tanczos was joined by Metiria Turei (after her 1999 stint with the McGillicuddy Serious Party). (Nandor Tanczos has since left the toxic hellhole that is New Zealand’s Parliament. Metiria Turei remains and is now the Green Party’s co-leader with Russel Norman.)

I confess that I party voted Green once (I’m pretty sure it was in 2002) and for exactly the reason just outlined. I’m sorry. 🙁

Giving my CLR vote to the Greens turned out to be a mistake. (Even though in my book Nandor Tanczos was, and still is, cool.) It was a mistake for two reasons. Because, beyond legalising a couple of strains of industrial hemp, the Greens have done nothing for cannabis law reform despite having had Parliamentary representation for 18 years now. And my vote for the watermelons (green on the outside, red on the inside) no doubt helped further their far-left agenda. Fortunately, in 2003 I saw the light of liberty, identified as a libertarian, and joined the Libertarianz Party. 🙂

Fast forward to 2014 and the cannabis vote was again cannibalised. This time by the Internet Party who basically copied the ALCP’s cannabis policy (stopping only just short of full, Colorado-style legalisation) and announced it barely two weeks out from the election. With much song and dance, since Internet Party leader Laila Harre’s partner in crime, the Mana Movement’s leader Hone Harawira, balked and gave the Internet Party’s policy pronouncement a great deal of extra publicity. (See, e.g., Internet Mana leaders fall out over weed and Mana leader angry at cannabis plan.)

It’s hard to tell how many party votes went to the Internet Mana Party that would otherwise have gone to the ALCP, given that the IMPs gained only 1.26% of the party vote (although projected to rise to 1.37% after special votes are counted). I’d like to think it was at least as many party votes as we lost compared to our 2011 election result.

This time I wasn’t anywhere near stupid or unprincipled enough to give my party vote to the IMPs. But those who were and did also made an electoral mistake. We witnessed InternetMana self-destructing over cannabis policy. Hone Harawira lost his (inaptly named) Te Tai Tokerau seat to Labour’s Kelvin Davis, and so all those CLR voters who voted IMPs flushed their party votes straight down the toilet. They should have protested instead! Then at least we’d know that they voted for cannabis law reform.

Regardless, perhaps John Key will hear the CLR message and legalise cannabis in the Fifth National Government’s third Parliamentary term.

What’s The Likelihood of Cannabis Law Reform in John Key’s Third Term?

Cannibalising the cannabis vote (Part 1)

The Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party took a big hit in Saturday’s general election. I don’t mind saying that I’m somewhat disappointed. (It’s my party – I’m the Vice President – and I’ll cry if I want to.)

The 2014 GENERAL ELECTION – PRELIMINARY RESULT gives us 0.41% of the party vote. That’s roughly 20% down on 2011’s final result of 0.52%, and pretty much back to where we were in 2008.

This time around was supposed to have been our election. With many jurisdictions around the world decriminalising (e.g., Jamaica) and some countries (Uruguay) and US states (Colorado, Washington) outright legalising, globally the tide has turned on cannabis prohibition. Consciousnesses were supposed to have been raised and cannabis law reform was supposed to have been much more of an election issue. But it wasn’t.

I was optimistic that we’d double our vote and achieve 1%. I never doubted that we’d stay safely above 0.5%. But we didn’t. So what went wrong?

Before we get to that, let’s take some big bong hits. All our candidates did well in their electorates, and their individual successes are worth celebrating.

Preliminary vote counts are highlighted in the table below, with some comparable figures from the NEW ZEALAND ELECTION RESULTS from the previous two general elections in 2011 and 2008. (Figures in brackets may not be the same candidate, the same electorate or the same party. Two out of the three.)

Candidate 2014 2011 2008 Electorate
KINGI, Emma-Jane Mihaere 838 703 Te Tai Tonga
DOMBROSKI, Jamie 608 439 New Plymouth
GRAY, Abe 466 (398) (483) Dunedin North
CRAWFORD, Julian 395 (398) (483) Dunedin South
WILKINSON, Robert 373 (254) (487) Christchurch Central
GOODE, Richard 332 332 (64) Mana
MANNING, Romana Marnz 307 352 Tukituki
McDERMOTT, Adrian 267 (319) Te Atatu
GREGORY, Alistair 258 (404) (407) Wellington Central
LYE, Jeff 221 (331) Kelston
(559) (788) Te Tai Tokerau
WILKINSON, Steven (203) 450 623 West Coast-Tasman
MACDONALD, Fred (107) 253 Otaki

Clear star of the show is Emma-Jane Kingi harvesting 838 votes in the southernmost Maori electorate of Te Tai Tonga. EJ, you rock! Also a very strong showing from Jamie Dombroski harvesting 608 votes in the New Plymouth electorate. Solid numbers too from the ALCP’s Leader Julian Crawford and Deputy Leader Abe Gray in the Dunedin South and Dunedin North electorates respectively. (The numbers in brackets are Julian’s results from 2011 and 2008 when he ran in the Dunedin North electorate.) And well done to budding newcomer Robert Wilkinson representing the party in the Christchurch Central electorate.

I’m happy enough with my own preliminary result of 332 votes in the Mana electorate. I expect a few more votes when the special votes are counted and the Electoral Commission announces the final results early next month. But my tally right now is exactly the same as last time. It’s significant that I got over 5 times as many votes standing under the ALCP banner this time and in 2011 as I did in 2008 when I was a Libertarianz Party candidate. Whose mast you nail your own colours to matters a great deal. I’ve included a couple of candidates in the table above who stood as ALCP candidates in previous elections, but who went their own ways this time. Both Steven Wilkinson and Fred Macdonald stood as Independents, and both more than halved their yields.

Satisfying results from our other candidates too, albeit slightly down on previous figures at this stage. I’d anticipated a few more votes for rising star Alistair Gregory who ran a stellar campaign in Wellington Central. In fact, the not quite comparable numbers in brackets are votes won in previous elections by Michael Appleby, the ALCP’s locally well-known leader and brand-recognised figurehead since the party’s inception in 1996 until he stood aside late last year. Suffice it to say, Ali had big shoes to fill.

But I think there’s another reason that Ali’s (and Jeff’s and Adrian’s) vote counts were down a little on previously (and also why Julian’s and Abe’s vote counts were steady despite Dunsterdam being this election’s ALCP campaign headquarters). They all had competition in their electorates from Internet Party candidates. Which brings me to what I think accounts for the significant drop in the ALCP’s party vote.

The Internet-Mana Party cannibalised the cannabis law reform vote. Read more in Part 2.

Eternal Vigilance electorate candidate endorsement #1. Grant Keinzley for Taranaki-King Country.

Please read the DISCLAIMER first.

Okay, so that was full of nothing. 🙂

The reason I’m endorsing Grant Keinzley for Taranaki-King Country is because he co-authored (with Tim Kibblewhite) a Review of New Zealand’s Drug Policy. It’s an Internet Party draft policy document. And it’s good.

Here are the document’s seven policy proposals.

Oh, wait … looks like someone pressed the history eraser button. 🙁 Subsection 4.2 and all of section 5 (containing the policy proposals) seem to have mysteriously disappeared! What were they?

Lucky that I saved a previous edit of the document. 🙂

5.1 Implement a Rehabilitative Approach towards Drug Addiction
The Internet Party will focus on viewing drug addiction as a health issue and not a criminal issue. The Internet Party will support legislation that reflects this. Part of this approach will be the implementation of drug courts to deal with possession issues.

5.2 Decriminalise the Use of Cannabis for Medicinal Purposes
The Internet Party will propose legislation to decriminalise the possession, cultivation and personal use of prescribed small amounts of natural cannabis for medicinal uses. Large-scale (to be determined) cultivation, possession and sale of natural cannabis will remain illegal. Details of the new law will be drafted following research into global best practice and the study of successful models in Europe and the US.

5.3 Set up an Office for Medicinal Cannabis
Following decriminalisation, an office for medicinal cannabis will be set up along the lines of that operating in the Netherlands, with the objective of controlling and maintaining high standards for the supply and use of natural cannabis for therapeutic purposes.

5.4 Fund Research and Clinical Trials
New Zealand research into the efficacy and safety of medicinal cannabis and cannabis-based therapeutic medicines will be funded with a view to speeding up the availability of proven remedies. Clinical trials to determine the benefits of medicinal cannabis and cannabis-based medicines will be funded, but only if the veracity of clinical trials undertaken overseas cannot be confirmed by New Zealand health authorities.

5.5 Legalise Cannabis for Personal Use
The Internet Party understands that policy and change has to be implemented slowly due to political realities. However, it will be the official opinion of the Internet Party that, due to the evidence and research supported by the scientific community, cannabis should be decriminalised for personal use.

5.6 Decriminalise Possession of Class A, B and C Drugs
The Internet Party will follow the compelling example set in Portugal and decriminalise the possession of other drugs to ensure that rehabilitation and treatment is offered to drug addicts as opposed to jail sentences.

5.7 Remove the Presumption of Supply
Following the recommendations of the Law Commission and the Supreme Court of New Zealand the Internet Party will introduce legislation that is consistent with the Bill of Rights Act 1990 which ensures that there will be no presumption of supply without proven intent.

These are all sensible and modest proposals. I’m particularly impressed that

The Internet Party understands that policy and change has to be implemented slowly due to political realities.

New Zealand already tried rapid implementation of unreal drug law reform, viz., the interim period provisions of the Psychoactive Substances Act. Predictably enough, the PSA’s interim period provisions proved to be a load of abject FAIL. There was a public outcry and the PSA’s evil mastermind, Peter Dunne, pulled the plug on the whole shenanigans. But not until eleven novel, untested research chemicals had been approved for sale to the general public. They were on the shelves for nine months. Just long enough for us to find out if any of these substances cause birth defects in the children of mothers legally addicted to them. The National government is criminally insane.

As per my personal policy statement, one day I hope to see all drugs fully legalised. The sad fact of the matter is that this may never happen. But, if it does, it will occur through a series of tiny steps in the right direction. It will begin with cannabis legalisation.

4.2 Colorado Legalisation of Cannabis

In 2012 there was a referendum in the state of Colorado. This measure would amend Colorado’s constitution and allow state-wide legalisation of cannabis. A similar measure was also passed in Washington State, however, their legalisation was set at a later date and as such less information is available on the success or failure of the plan so Colorado’s model is more applicable for research purposes. The first legal cannabis stores opened in Colorado on January 1st 2014.

The law change has meant that adults over 21 years of age can possess and use cannabis for personal recreational use.

There was a fear that this law would lead to a spike in usage of cannabis. However, in a recent report John Hickenlooper, the Governor of Colorado, reported that “we don’t see a spike in adult use…we don’t think we see a spike in youth consumption.” He also remarked, ‘let’s face it, the War on Drugs was a disaster…it sent millions of kids to prison, gave them felonies – often times when they had no violent crimes.’

In addition to avoiding charges on those who were simply using cannabis for personal use, Colorado has reported that there are significant tax incentives to legalisation of cannabis. The state, which is of roughly comparable population and GDP to New Zealand, has reported that they have collected $25,307,067 in cannabis taxes since January 2014.

Full Colorado-style legalisation of cannabis is the Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party’s policy. 🙂

It’s been all year since Colorado’s bud shops opened their doors. Almost all indicators from Colorado so far are good. But even implementing something along the lines of Colorado’s tightly regulated commercial cannabis market may be too much too soon for the sheeple of New Zealand. Colorado-style legalisation of cannabis would be a tiny step towards a future libertopia. But (I’m guessing) it’s still too big a step, according to the Internet Party’s policy advisors, and that’s why they’ve redacted the subsection above.

So what is the Internet Party’s cannabis policy? They don’t have one. Yet. I’m told by a couple of party insiders that the Internet Party will release its cannabis policy this Sunday 24 August. I hope that policy proposal 5.5 will make the cut. And I’ll be interested to see if their upcoming policy will be to legalise cannabis for personal use (as per the section heading) or merely to decriminalise cannabis possession and cultivation (as per the section body). (It’s worth stating the not as obvious as it should be. Legalisation and decriminalisation are NOT the same thing. Decriminalisation just means less draconian penalties apply.)

Here‘s another reason to vote Keinzley.

His work in Asia included setting up a non-profit China Typhoon Rescue Organisation, helping communities clean up and rebuild after a disaster.

And another.

I never really liked politics.

Voters in the Taranaki-King Country electorate, please give your electorate vote to Grant Keinzley and your party vote to the Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party!

Screaming for Vengeance (Part 1)

[Being as how today is the 20th anniversary of the Bain murders … here’s an unfinished post I started writing last year. Now published as Part 1. Part 2 will be on the evolutionary psychology of blood feuds.]


I’m irked. In particular, I’m irked by people on Facebook screaming for vengeance. Screaming for vengeance against David Bain, Ariel Castro, Kim Dotcom … to name a few. I don’t get irked easily. But my irk threshold is exceeded when the screams for vengeance drown out the calls for justice. This post is about vengeance and justice.

David Bain mostly got what he deserved. But then there was a travesty and no more justice was served. I figure Bain’s got a clear run between now and Judgement Day. (I also figure that now is a good time to post a pic of Bain cavorting with some silly bint on a beach in Rarotonga. What is it with women and murderous psychopaths?) Folks over at the Facebook group I belong to had better get used to this. Folks mostly have. And Justice For Robin Bain is something still worth fighting for.

Ariel Castro got sentenced to … plus 1000 years. Well, that was never going to happen, was it? Castro’s body rots as we speak. I figure it’s playing catch-up with his soul. (In the U.S., wishful thinking is thinking that a 1000 year sentence is a 1000 year sentence. In NZ, it’s thinking that life means life. Let’s not forget that one of the most important reasons for putting people in prison, if not the most important, is to keep the rest of us safe from psychos.)

Check out this Facebook comment.

Dotcom is a thieving liar who will soon be deported to USA for his piracy, and hopefully thrown in jail for 100 years. The only people that support him are people that think that stealing an artists life’s work is OK

100 years in jail for running a file sharing service? Takes screaming for vengeance to a new level. And then the rest of it. Personally, I don’t believe in IP. But my co-blogger Tim and Mark over at Life Behind the IRon Drape do. They’re staunch Dotcom supporters and I’m quite sure that they don’t “think that stealing an artists life’s work is OK.” Facebook. Where pap is always on tap.

I’ve never been the vengeful type. I came to libertarianism from the left, so I have liberal sentiments. For example, I’m more Howard League for Penal Reform than I am Sensible Sentencing Trust. Jesus made it abundantly clear that Christians are supposed to visit and look after those in prison. As opposed to simply locking them up and throwing away the key. (I have a Christian friend whose choice of penpals is inmates on death row. How awesome is that?!) And the author of the Epistle to the Hebrews reminds us

Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering. (NIV)

God has always been the vengeful type. And he’s really big on justice. God is a just God. But, whereas God delegates the task of doing justice to us (well, to Reed mainly)

He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God? (ESV)

he reserves for Himself the right to avenge. The key verse is found in the Old Testament and quoted twice in the New Testament. God says,

It is mine to avenge; I will repay. In due time their foot will slip; their day of disaster is near and their doom rushes upon them (NIV)

So that’s the Biblical perspective on vengeance and justice. Justice is a Christian virtue. (And one of four cardinal virtues in Roman Catholicism.) Whereas revenge is an unchristian vice. Vengeance is justice without mercy. And you really don’t want to be on the receiving end of that, do you? So

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. (KJV)

Revenge has temporal as well as eternal consequences. This is noted in the Book of Proverbs.

The merciful man doeth good to his own soul: but he that is cruel [unmerciful or vengeful] troubleth his own flesh. (KJV)

But the Bible doesn’t really do, er, justice to the full, horrible extent of revenge’s temporal toll on those consumed by its lusts. Ladies and gentlemen, please give a big round of applause to … (drum roll …) evolutionary psychology!

LEAP NZ’s Angus Fisk’s criticism of Dodgy Police decision not to prosecute John Banks, and other Public officials.


Angus Fisk…Retired NZ Policeman and member of LEAP NZ.

From A Fisk…
Sent this off yesterday………
The Editor
Otago Daily Times
I submit the following open letter to the Commissioner of Police for publication in your paper.
The Commissioner of Police,
The incidence of the NZ Police taking upon itself not to prosecute certain cases on the basis that there is insufficient evidence to warrant charges being laid has come to light as an increasing and unwelcome phenomena.
Most recently we have the unedifying instance of the case against Mr John Banks for submitting a false election return in which your judgement of insufficient evidence has been proven to be flawed threefold; first by a member of the public laying a private prosecution, then by the Crown Prosecutor taking on the case and finally by a judgement of the Court finding Mr Banks guilty. Then today I read of Sir David’s finding of excessive force by a Constable who employed pepper spray, a baton and two ‘shots’ of a taser to subdue an offender. Again the police considered that there were insufficient grounds for prosecution. Media reports of other similar instances seem to crop up all too often.
The practise is not new – I also know of a case, now dated, against a former police Sergeant for forgery, perverting the course of justice and perjury (of which you will have intimate knowledge by virtue of your service as a Detective in the Far North in the 1980’s) being written off on the same grounds not-withstanding abundant evidence to the contrary – but is becoming too commonplace.
Surely, it should not be necessary for a former Police Sergeant to remind the Commissioner of Police that the Courts are the right and proper venue for judging such cases, not behind the closed doors of Police Headquarters since the latter raises the question of why such dubious decisions are being made within the higher eschelons of the Police. Is it mere professional incompetence, an inablity to grasp the facts of a case? One would hope not given the considerable experience of our most senior police officers and the legal advisory resources available to them. Or could there be some more sinister motive; favouritism, partiality, corruption even? I make no judgement here, I am merely reflecting the growing public disquiet on the subject I perceive about me.
The fact is it is not necessary for the police to have an absolute and watertight case before a prosecution is lodged. Reasonable grounds to suspect an offence are sufficient criteria. It is up to to Courts then to decide the worth of a case. I would argue there is no harm in police losing cases in Court since this merely demonstrates that they are doing their job properly – and not usurping the Courts role. How many cases are disposed of in this convenient manner? And what proportion relate to police misconduct/politically delicate matters? Do we need some sort of Judicial auditing to ensure our police are up to the job, perhaps?
Prevailing Police practise does little for the good name of the Police; indeed it contributes to a growing public cyniscm on the integrity of the Police. I urge you to either address this issue or to stand down for somebody that will.
Angus Fisk


bad good

Awesome Angus!
While I believe it is prudent to allow some police discretion with regards to minor issues,
Your remarks are particularly true when dealing with Public servants, politicians, police, etc because the faith of the people needs to be maintained.

The whole Banks/ Dotcom affair has been a laughable joke (I’m not talking about the Raid… that was serious Tyrannical Bullshit!).
It is fitting that a power tripper like Banks should finally reap some of the ‘love’ he has sown against so many peaceful peeps… (re The war on drugs).

A Political Spider got caught in a political web.

This Saga makes a mockery of the silly rules regarding election donation disclosure… as if a 25k anonymous bribe is ok… 50k… becomes a crime!
It also shows how politicians like Banksy ‘work the system’…. “Hey Dot… break it down into two donations…. and we fly under the radar….” 🙂

Angus is truly a Hero.
He has commented on a very serious corruption which infests the Police culture from the Top down.
Now we have a Police Chief who publicly hailed a corrupt policeman whom framed an innocent Man…. costing him his farm and sending him to Jail for 9 years!

Now how is it that this is the sort of guy we have at the top????
Surely *If anything* this attitude is a clear indication of his *Un-fitness* for the roll.

Read about that >>> Pressure grows on top cop to retract Hutton funeral eulogy

How many people have forgotten that the NZ Police also failed to Press charges against Helen Clark’s Labour Party regarding their 2005 ‘Pledge card’ election fraud and theft of nearly half a million dollars by which they were able to *Pervert the democratic process*… Defraud Don Brash of his opportunity to End Waitangi separatism… and Keep their filthy hands on power????
Then Libertarianz party leader Bernard Danton privately sued Helen Clark for Fraud, which case was only nullified by the Machiavellian Labour party writing retrospective legislation to prevent a guilty verdict.???

Read about that here>>>> Labour escapes charges on pledge card but case found

Helen Clark could become the next Secretary General of the United Nations!

Read about it>>> Former PM Helen Clark tipped for UN’s top job

The Police have lost their way.
They have become Political players…. Stooges and Gangsters… rather than servants of the rights and liberties of the public.

They are in dire need of reform.
This requires an entire Enlightenment Re: the philosophy of Law, and code of police conduct as servants of the people rights and liberties…. rather than Political enforcers… and lobbyists for their own power and vested interests.

The Kim Dotcom Party


The fat German narcissist Kim Dotcom is to launch a new New Zealand political party on Monday.


On Twitter, Dotcom says

My new political party won’t be named Mega Party. We are the Internet Party. Here’s our logo for the first time.


I find it ironic that the initials of the new party are IP, given that Dotcom is fighting extradition to the US on internet piracy charges. (Perhaps that’s why he neglected to register the domain name Instead, the party’s soon to be unveiled website is to reside at

Like most of Dotcom’s all-too-frequent narcissistic antics (only yesterday, Dotcom gets jail apology was splashed all across the front of the Dominion Post), this latest one annoys me. Sure, he’s been treated very badly by the New Zealand government, and the US government unjustly wants his scalp, but that’s no excuse to lash out and create a new political party.

Without a doubt, Dotcom’s party will leach votes from other smaller parties with legitimate reasons to exist. I’m thinking in particular, of course, of the Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party, but also of the Pirate Party which is already well established and likely has near identical policies to those of the new party. (We don’t know what the new party’s policies actually are yet, of course, but I expect one of them will be not extraditing Dotcom to the US.)

Here are my predictions for the party’s fortunes. They’ll peak about election time, possibly giving the Internet Party seats in Parliament, then plummet soon after Dotcom’s extradition to the US.
