The Meme (below) was posted to Gab Social media platform.
It makes a subtil claim appealing to Zeal… Zealotry… my retort to @Boomstick follows below.
Tim Wikiriwhi Responds…
@Boomstick Beware… This has no context, and is therefore deceptive in the extreme.
It’s claiming *Intolerance is a virtue!*
That cannot withstand any scrutiny.
Without some tolerance a person becomes a fanatic… indistinguishable from any form of fanatic… eg an Islamic extremist.
They would wholeheartedly endorse this claim.
Are you any better than they?
Now hear the enlightened truth!
Just as there are things that may be compromised, and others that may not be compromised, so too there are things that can, and ought to be tolerated, and others that ought not to be tolerated.
It is an equal wrong *not to tolerate what you ought* as it is to tolerate what you ought not.
Wisdom and Enlightenment teaches which is which.
Lower values can be sacrificed for the sake of higher values.
Treating others as we would wish to be treated ourselves… is natural justice.
Tolerance is guided by higher principles and convictions… it is not the abandonment of them as is claimed above.
A Tolerant man ought not to be a weak and an easily beguiled man, but show tolerance from a position of strength and vigilance.
And there is a line in the sand.
It is only by the embodiment of such values and principles than any man can claim to be civil and walk the higher path than the savage.
Intolerance is the hallmark of the Barbarian.
Intolerance is the hallmark of Tyranny.
Intolerance comes from fear.
Principled tolerance is in fact a symbol of courage.

Update: Richard Dawkins came to New Zealand and wrote an article how science in this country is being undermined by Woke ideology that panders to Maori myths and legends…
“….I’m in New Zealand, climax to my antipodean speaking tour, where I walked headlong into a raging controversy. Jacinda Ardern’s government implemented a ludicrous policy, spawned by Chris Hipkins’s Ministry of Education before he became prime minister. Science classes are to be taught that Māori ‘Ways of Knowing’ (Mātauranga Māori) have equal standing with ‘western’ science. Not surprisingly, this adolescent virtue-signalling horrified New Zealand’s grown-up scientists and scholars. Seven of them wrote to the Listener magazine. Three who were fellows of the NZ Royal Society were threatened with an inquisitorial investigation. Two of these, including the distinguished medical scientist Garth Cooper, himself of Māori descent, resigned (the third unfortunately died). I was delighted to meet Professor Cooper for lunch, with others of the seven. His resignation letter cited the society’s failure to support science against its denigration as ‘a western European invention’. He was affronted, too, by a complaint (not endorsed by the NZRS) that ‘to insist Māori children learn to read is an act of colonisation’. Is there an implication here – condescending, if not downright racist – that ‘indigenous’ children need separate, special treatment?…”
So this is what is going on with the NZ Met Service.
In an NZ Herald article we read the response from a woke indigenous reasearcher which was embarrassing yet predictable. In absence of any cogent argument in defense of including ‘Maori ways of knowing’ Mc Allister repairs to fake claims of Racism. She insults Maori suggesting we are oppressed by ‘colonising science’ when Maori were quick to take full advantage of it.
This is a piece I have been working on for months, and yet it is nowhere near what I would deem to be ‘finished’.
Yet I am publishing it today here on Eternal Vigilance Blog for the public holiday for Waitangi Day 2023, as my contribution to the ongoing defense of the Kiwi Dream, The values that underpinned the British Colonisation of New Zealand from the relentless slander and falsification that is pervasive across all modes of communication with the intention of brainwashing the population.
How important is it to have a solid grasp of history?
Very important lest you be deceived and defrauded by Agenda driven Liars.
“He who controls the past… controls the future” saith George Orwell meaning if Machiavellian Political actors can shade your view of history… they will also be able to manipulate and proscribe your future… and that translates into Political Power.
Captain of No.2 Company, Forrest Rangers. Major Gustav von Tempsky.
Above is photo of a New Zealand hero. Prussian born Major Gustav von Tempsky. He Lived and died in New Zealand, in the mid 1800s, yet his exploits are just as relevant today as they were 150+ years ago… and that is because we live in a time in which Machavellian radicals are seeking to ‘control the past’ precisely as Orwell warned… so that they can control our future… and they are doing a splendid job of it too…. at the present time…they are actually winning the fight… and the defenders of truth, freedom and enlightenment values are withering under the onslaught.
We desperately need reinforcements!
Do you want your children to inherit an apartheid socialist slave society… or to enjoy the same sort of Freedom and quality of life that older generations of kiwi have enjoyed?
If you care about future generations you better wake up to what is going on… fast!
Arm your self with Truth and knowledge, and Just principles… put your boots on and succor the heroic minority of freedom advocates battling the barbarians.
If you are a Kiwi, yet have never herd of Von Tempsky then you are one of the many who have neglected to study the colonial heritage of our nation. Your ignorance makes you easy meat to be fooled.
Or perhaps you consider yourself to be ‘educated and informed’ on ‘the evils of British Imperialism and the crimes of the colonisation of New Zealand… if then you think you know about Von Tempsky and his contemporaries you will no doubt believe he was a Villainous racist and murderer… if this is the case you have been thoroughly fooled already!
You have been sold malicious lies, and fallen under the power of those who are seeking to destroy our Western society… and take everything for themselves.
No Joke…. everything is at stake!
I am committed to the cause of promoting the counter-narrative to todays politically driven falsehoods… I endeavor to present a far more accurate understanding of our history so that by consideration of the facts as recorded in history proper, and weighing up the two contrasting views my countrymen can make their own determination as to which fits best. I have confidence that the truth can wake up those whom have been deceived.
And when you appreciate the swindle that is afoot my hope is that you will join us in the fight to defeat the vile ideology of Radical Far left extremism and Treaty separatism.
Lets get going…
Capitan Gustav Von Tempsky (Major) Was A Great Man of High Character… A Hero Who Gave His Life For Our Country.
Today’s blogpost is in defense of the character and Legacy one of New Zealand’s most brave heroes of the 19th Century. An artist, Adventurer, and man who fought to defend our young nation from violent overthrow, and who gave his life defending the Treaty of Waitangi for the sake of law and order… as a member of ‘The Armed Constabulary’.
The contribution that he, and his generation made to secure our nation and lay the foundations for our prosperity has been shamefully forgotten in the century of peace that followed their brave and principled actions.
The Heroic Death of Von Tempsky.
Von Tempsky in his time was a celebrated Hero!
He was worthy of public esteem.
Along with other defenders of New Zealand in recognition of their service to our nation, the city of Hamilton would name a city street in his honour.
The name of the city itself ‘Hamilton’ was named after yet another brave soldier who lost his life fighting Rebel Maori at the Battle of Gate Pa.
The Tainui led Kingites and their allies were defeated by the joint heroism of both British and Loyalist Maori forces, upholding British Sovereignty and the Rule of Law, securing the future Peace, good will and prosperity we now enjoy.
Because in war there are victors and the defeated, afterwards there are always those who carry bitterness and scheming malcontents looking for wealth and power can take advantage of such divides by devious political means. This is where the desire to destroy the reputation of Men like VonTempsky finds it’s root. Haters gina be haten… the scent of money via playing the victim…. ‘Reparations for past oppression’…. thus the impetus to generate ‘tales of injustice and woe…’
Truth is the first casualty.
Obviously having been defeated in battle some insignificant few cling to resentment, ill feelings and harbour desires for Utu, yet time tends to salve wounds, and having fought wars against vesting interests that desired to prevent progress, and drive Pakeha into the sea, the nation sought to put the conflicts of the 1860s aside (this is true of most of the defeated leaders of the rebellion too) and focus on fostering unity and quiet… yet sadly in doing so…
100+ years on we have allowed an ignorance to prevail in future generations about the true nature and causes of the conflicts … an ignorance that is now being fully exploited by a minority of malevolent envious malcontents… Contemptuous politicians, ideologues, and racist activists to spread lies about the collonistation of New Zealand…. so that today instead of being revered with their due honor, Von Tempsky (and his contemporaries) is being reviled as some sort of racist monster… a purposefully politically fabricated caricature that is supposed to be representative of the ‘evils of colonisation’ in general.
I have written in defense of Von Tempsy’s honor many times in the past, in particular I made a written submission to Hamilton City Council in 2020 when they asked for public submissions on the proposal to strip Hamilton City of place and Street names that honored great men of our colonial past, in particular many who fought and defeated the Tainui Kingite rebellion (Read here).
The desire to destroy these tributes and monuments comes from a specific political Lobby and vested interest.
Hamilton City Council announced a suspension of this public discourse into these matters under the pretext of ‘Social Distancing for Covid 19’.
A scheduled public hearing was postponed… indefinitely. I suspect they had miscalculated the public backlash that was expressed in written submissions.
Instead they implemented a scheme that only granted excusive participation from selected quarters…. mainly Tainui activists… bypassing/ disenfranchising the public at large from having a voice in the process… The Hamilton press failing to voice any protest to their machinations.
They instituted a shambolic closed doors ‘inquisition’ of Gustav von Tempsky… and found him guilty… and past the verdict that his memorial street shall be ‘Blotted out’.
These articles represent how our nations media has been hijacked by Far left radicalism… Marxist Communist anti-British colonsation doctrines.
I seek to expose the extreme malice and gross injustice of misrepresenting the character of the Brave Men such as Von Tempsky who fought for Queen and country.
Today, quoting from recorded history, and from other personal observations, I will further reinforce my contention that history bares witness to the fact that Von Tempsky was a man of Honor.
Von Tempsky was not ‘a Maori hating Racist’ as the Woke left try to portray him, and I seek to expose the duplicity of his detractors who point to his ‘Glory seeking antics’… as evidence of an evil racist ‘Blood-lusting’ mentality.
They fail to apply the same standard to the mindset of the thousands of Rebel Maori Warriors who were absolutely obsessed with the attainment of such glory for themselves… and who ready did take pleasure in the slaughter of white people.
There is no higher authority in the recording of the history of the armed conflicts in New Zealand of the 1800’s than James Cowan and his two volumes ‘The New Zealand Wars’.
Not only did Cowan visit the sites of battle while there were still ‘bullet holes in walls’, and spoke with many who themselves were participants able to give their accounts of what happened where… and why, Cowan demonstrates high levels of objectivity, and if anything like many Pakeha of his times his sympathy leans towards the dignity of the ‘Brave Rebels’.
This is esp conspicuous in his telling of the Battle of Orakau.
This is apparent when you read his history. I would measure his achievement as being willing to give credit where ever he thought it was due… but esp to ‘the underdogs’… The Rebels who were fighting against a far Superior Foe.
Courage… ‘Pluck’… being the primary virtue in war esp in ‘forlorn hope’. And the rebels surely were not inferior in this.
The fact is… as a person whom is well read in New Zealand history I assert you will struggle to find any traces of the ‘Bigoted White supremacy and desire to oppress Maori’, that todays Separatist radicals assert was the signature character of Pakeha in the first century of Colonisation.
It simply is not there. Yet compassion and the desire to praise Maori is virtually universal… yet you can only know this… if you actually study the historic records themselves rather than imbibe the ideological falsehoods of Radical and politically skewed modern day pseudo-Academics. They are Charlatans!
The Kingite Rebellion was a violent breach of the Treaty of Waitangi.
J Cowan called their cause… ‘A Struggle for Independence’ J Cowan. The New Zealand Wars. pg 316.
Governor Grey expressly warned if they did not desist from their murderous hostilities that were a breach of the treaty, he would punish them, and that they would lose their guarantees over their land which was part of the terms and conditions of them *honoring the treaty* esp the Sovereignty of Queen Victoria.
It is from Cowan’s works that I will now quote and make commentary…
“The Engagement At Mahoetahui.
The Upper Waikato contingent had gone home after Puketa-kaurere to tell of their victory over the pakeha, exhibit their trophies of battle, and plant their crops. The news of their prowess in the field, and and the sight of the soldiers’ caps and red coats in which some of them paraded, their newly gotten rifles, bayonets, and cartridge pouches, aroused at once the admiration and the jealousy of their neighbours. Ngati-Manipoto’s exploits fired all the Waikato tribes with ardour for the field. Nati-Haua’s war-fever could no longer be allayed even by the peace-loving Wiremu Tamehana. The stalwart men of Matamata, Tamahere, and Maunga-tautari had reluctantly remained in their kaingas when Potatau forbade Waikato and Ngati-Haua to cross the Puniu river and released only Ngati-Manipoto for the war on the Waitara. But now the old king was dead, and his runanga at Ngaruawhahia had little control over Ngati-Haua of the plains.
Why should Ngati-Manipoto have all the joy, and glory of killing the Pakeha?…”
James Cowan. The New Zealand Wars. Pt1 pg 193.
The above short passage is just a tiny taste of what is recorded in ‘The New Zealand Wars’ as to the Rebel Maori’s love of War and express desire to slaughter Pakeha.
Maori of old worshiped Tu… a Bloody God of War and after less than a hand full of decades since the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi, the Warrior Cult was still at the forefront of the least civilised tribesmen. Even today this aspect of Maori Culture is understood as foremost.
There is a lie circulating that the Urewera iwi Tuhoe never took part in the Maori rebellions of the 1860s.
They certainly did!
Moreover Tuhoe was an extremely Warlike people… and famous for their Black mystical Arts.
let us see how they are described by James Cowan…
‘These impassioned war-calls intensely excited the young warriors of Tuhoe, and inspite of the advice of some of the old chiefs they raised a company for the assistance of the Maori King. Two casks of gunpowder were given to Rewi’s party. One of these – presented by Harehare, Te Wiremu, and Timoti, of the Ngati-Manawa, at Tauaroa- had been sent from Ohinemuri by the old cannibal warrior Taraia Ngakuti, of Ngati- Tamatera. The touhungas had recited charms over the cask of powder to render the contents doubly efficacious asgainst the Pakeha; and it had been given the name “Hine-ia-Taraua.” Takurua Koro=kai-toke joined Rewi: he was the elder brother of Harehare, the present chief of Ngati-Manawa at Murupara, on the Rangitaiki. He and his wife Rawinia (Lavinia) were both wounded at Orakau. Harehare himself, having no grievance against Europeans, did not join, saying that he would fight the troops if they invaded the Rangitaiki country, but not otherwise. But Tuhoe and Ngati-Whare entertained no such punctilio; they were eager to make use of their weapons, and would travel far for the pure love of fighting…’
The New Zealand Wars. Pt 1. James Cowan. pg 368
So if any justice is to spoken about the lust for war, it must be understood that The Rebels themselves were by far the most enamored.
Nor did Martial minded Pakeha like Von Tempsky disrespect their War-like customs. It was understood that Martial prowess was *a source of Mana for any people* that demanded respect.
Likewise was Von Tempskys bravery and prowess in Battle revered by his enemies.
The blatant duplicity of so-called modern Historians, Socialist politicians, and Separatist activists in seeking to slander the character of the Colonial defenders by painting them as Blood-lusting greedy warmongers when in truth…. after the facts of Von Tempkys chivalrous conduct during the Wars are understood… those savage characteristics far more accurately describe the Bulk of Rebel Maori than the character and exploits of Von Tempsky.
Reading James Cowan’s ‘The New Zealand wars’ Wairemu Tamehana looms large. What singles him out from his ‘war-fevered’ peers was his ‘Peace-loving’ restraining influence and warnings that war would bring ill upon them. It was the fact that by far the prevailing desire among the rebel tribes was to exterminate the Pakeha that Wairemu Tamehana was ultimately unable to dissuade the Rebels from the murderous and disastrous actions that resulted in their defeat.
Activists and revisionists seek to portray Von Tempksy as a ‘Maori Hater’… a white supremacist bigot….
As to Von Tempsky’s attitude towards race and towards Maori in general, Cowan records that in Von Tempsky’s corps of Forest Rangers included 2 Negroes.
Cowan also mentions that before Von Tempsky arrived in New Zealand he had been involved in military’s escapades in South America in which he commanded an irregular force of ethnic Mosquito Coast native Indians. (James Cowan The New Zealand Wars Pt 1 pgs 269,270)
Conspicuous only to those who take the trouble to look into these events for themselves, Professor O’Malley’s character profile of Von Tempsky in his report for Hamilton City council is skewed in that he omits that prior to coming to New Zealand, while in America Von Tempsky had led a contingent of *Mosqutia Natives*, instead only mentioning the Von Tempsky had his first military’s experiences there.
O’Malley makes no mention of the two Blacks who served in Von Tempsky’s hand picked squad of Forrest Rangers.
“All nationalities were in the ranks…” (J Cowan The New Zealand wars Pt1 pg 268)
J Cowan notes that prior to joining the Forrest Rangers, while at the Coromandal Gold fields Von Tempsky himself had experienced some prejudice ‘on account of his nationality’
(J Cowan The New Zealand Wars Pt1 pg 270)
These facts do not square with the accusation that he was a man of pompous White supremacist bigoted views.
These are the sort of fact that would not be conducive to achieving the aims of Tainui and the Woke members of the Hamilton City Council in getting rid of VonTempsky’s legacy and ‘De-colonising’ the City… which is why corrupt O’Malley omits them from his report.
He was paid to produce a report that served to justify the intended political aims of Tainui and the Woke Council.
One opportunity O’ Malley used to paint Von Tempsky as a villain was when he expressed jealousy in playing no roll in the exploits of an action carried on by his friendly rival Captain (Major) William Jackson against raiding Maori Rebels. (O’Malley Report 112-113). O’Malley claims the action was reported as being ‘Murderous’ in the ‘Daily Southern Cross’ yet does not provide any verifiable reference… and so O’Malley presents Von Tempsky as being a Man who takes pleasure in the ‘Murder'[slaughter] of Maori including Woman and children… even though he was not there!
The truth is this action was far from ‘Murder’, but was in fact in just response to murderous raids this Hupu of Koheriki Maori were perpetrating against hard working and relatively defenseless pioneer ‘frontier’ homesteads on the outskirts of Auckland in which these murderous raiders were killing families, Men, woman in Children tending their farms.
“On the 13th October a party of Koheriki retaliated with an attack on unarmed Europeans within a short distance of the Galloway Redoubt. An elderly man named Job Hamlin was killed, and his companion, a boy named Joseph Wallis, about 13 years of age was terribly tomahawked, but by a miracle survived his wounds…”
“On the 15th, October an old soldier named Fahey and his wife, who were settled on a small bush farm near Ramarama, were out milking their cows when they were surprised by some of the Koheriki and shot and tomakawked…”
” A party of twenty Koheriki natives on the 26th October raided Kennedy’s farm at Mangemangeroa, a few miles from Howick in the direction of Maraetai. Mr Trust, who was in charge of the farm, was away in Auckland at the time, but there were three of his sons in occupation, besides two men, Courtenay and Lord. Ambrose Trust was the eldest son; the others, Richard and Nicholas Trust, were nine and twelve years of age. Lord, who was a workman on the place, was leaving the farmhouse at about 7 o’clock to go to his house when he saw a number of armed Maoris crouching in a ditch near the house. Lord and Courtenay escaped, but the latter was wounded The Maoris fired through the front window. Ambrose Trust Trust, taking his little brothers by the hand, ran out the back and hurried in the direction of the neighbours. The Maori gave chase and shot down the two small boys. Ambrose, wounded in the shoulder, with difficulty escaped.
The boys were tomahawked…”
J Cowan. The New Zealand Wars. Pt1 pgs 291,292, 293
This is the type of Atrocities the Kingites were committing.
These shameful attacks were sanctioned by the Kingite Rebel leadership as an implicit part of their strategy, it is therefore outrageous of O Malley to then call the Forrest Rangers response to these Koheriki raids ‘Murder’.
The response was fully justified *Utu*.
It was because of these outrages that the Forrest Ranger companies were formed, and that O’ Malley omits the context of the ‘Paparata fight’ in light of what these roving bands of rebels were committing in my view constitutes a purposeful intent to misrepresent the historical facts for the sake of a political narrative.
Calling O’Malley an historian is an outrageous lie.
He is a Charlatan.
He and his ilk completely reverse historical truth!
It was the Rebel Maori who intended to commit Racial cleansing and atrocities not Grey’s Collonial Government.
The Colonial Government had to defeat the Kingite rebellion to prevent them carrying out their intention to slaughter the entire population of Auckland!
That the Kingites intended to slaughter Men, Woman, and Children was expressly warned by none other than Wiremu Tamehana.
” The war now waged was very different from Hone heke’s chivalrous tournament of 1845. It was a racial war; The Maori aim was to sweep the pakeha to the sea, as the Pakeha Government’s object was to teach the Maori his subjection to British authority. The Europeans were not without warning that the sharp and barbarous old Maori methods of warfare were to be revived.
Wiremu Tamehana himself, deeply as he sorrowed over the inevitable conflict, was compelled to place himself in line with his countrymen. He warned the Archdeacon Brown, at Tauranga, that he -meaning his race- would spare neither unarmed persons (tangata rina-kore) nor property. In August, 1863, he wrote to the Governor cautioning him to bring ‘to the towns the defenseless, lest they be killed in their farms in the bush,” “But” he concluded, “you are well acquainted with the customs of the Maori race” The frontier settlers who remained on their sections did so at their own risk. No chief, not even a King or the kingmaker, could restrain a party of young bloods on the war-path seeking to flesh their tomahawks. They would quote the ancient war-proverb, He marara kokti ihu waka” ( A flying-fish crossing the bow of the canoe”) in allusion to any luckless persons whom a fighting Taua might find in it’s path, and in the stern logic of the Maori there could be no reasonable protest against the practical application of the aphorism by cutting short the career of the “flying-fish”.
(J Cowan The New Zealand Wars Pt1 pgs 239-42)
From the above quotation we also get a picture of the truth that it was the Young Rebel Maori Warriors who reveled in murder and the tomakawking of the defenseless!
In no way can Von Tempsky’s conduct as a fighting man be compared with this real *Old world Maori barbarism and brutality*… defenseless people are considered ‘flying fish’ to be tomahawked.
Von Tempsky’s Art Legacy
With respect to Von Tempsky’s treatment of Maori woman during the War, and accusations of atrocities committed Rangiaowhia, anyone who takes the time to investigate recorded History will find the truth to be in diametric opposition to the fabrications of the Anti-colonialist Radicals!
Unlike the British/Colonial forces in which only men fought (save woman defending their own homesteads from murderous Rebel assaults), on the Rebel Kingite side woman often participated in battle as active armed combatants… on the offensive… making it very difficult for the chivalry of the British who found it repugnant to shoot woman.
eg, With the attacking warriors ‘
…was a woman, armed with a single barrel gun, a cartridge-belt buckled about her waist. The little clearing, so quiet a few moments before, was filled with the bellowing of heavily loaded ‘Tupara’ and the sharp crack of rifes. High about the other sounds rose the screaming voice of the Maori Amazon as she exhorted her warrior comrades, “Riria! Riria!” (Fight away! Fight Away!”)…’ J Cowan. The New Zealand Wars Pt1 pg 277
These realities are never admitted to by the lying Separatist radicals.
In truth it was the Kingites who relished the slaughter of Non-combatants, Men, woman, and children… not the British and Colonial forces.
At the capture of Rabgiaowhia James Cowan records that it was only after suffering repeated sniping from hate filled wahine, did troops move to capture them… they otherwise would have been left alone unmolested… and still even after having been disarmed and held prisoner VonTempsky signaled a guard to allow a woman to escape.
Later… when the actual Battle of Rangiaowhia took place and the Kingites were defeated, in the flight Wahine were intermingled with the fighting men to avoid shoot them the call went out from the British for the woman to ‘sit down’ those that heeded the call were saved.
No mention of any of these nuanced facts in O’Malleys Report which seeks to maintain gross fallacious pseudo-historical generalisation that the Kingites were the victims of vicious racism, Greed, and atrocities.
O Malley’s agenda is consistent. He Mistreats Governor Grey with the same malicious omission. Grey was a man of High Character and Bravery. At no point does O’Malley do him justice. For example while mentioning Grey’s unannounced visit to Ngaruawahia, O’Malley fails to mention this visit was done for the sake of avoiding conflict… it was a peace mission, at great risk to his personal safety. Grey trusted in his *Friendship and good will* with the Maori King. These are not the actions of a greedy warmonger.
Now I would like to discuss a witness to Von Tempsky’s impeccable character that as far as I can see has been totally overlooked … that is his own treatment of Maori as depicted in *his Art*. I believe Woke Socialist politicians and activists have avoided discussion of his Art because they literally paint a different picture as to VonTempsky’s attitude to Maori.
The study of Art tells us a lot about the artist’s inner voice.
I contend that by looking at the paintings Von Tempsky bequeathed to posterity you can see with your own eyes that he took great pains to present Maori as people of heroic and noble bearing.
The painting themselves are devoid of anything that could be construed as ‘White Supremacy’.
No Maori can glean any ill intent in how he portrays their race in his art.
I his aim was self Glorification of his race, and the debasement of Maori, He could have easily chosen to portray the grotesque savagery and barbarism of his enemies which he would have been very familiar having fought hand to hand combat with many frenzied blood-lusting Toa eager to claim his life to imortalise their own mana… yet he never stooped to such fickle ideological vice.
Thus his paintings testify to his good character, and they rebut the lies leveled against him.
Like so many lands that were once colonies of the British Empire We here in New Zealand must endure a campaign of relentless lies and malicious posthumous character assignation of many of our greatest historical figures.
Columbus is under attack by the Radical woke Far left in the USA.
Capitan Cook is under attack in Australia and elsewhere (including New Zealand)
No nuanced arguments underpin any of this, but grotesque and toxic Marxist brain worms drill into the minds of any and all useful idiots who have not been inoculated with truth
It is truly a despicable process that is in play… all of it a politically driven travesty motivated by hate, greed, and lust for power.
Only their twisted and highly prejudiced perspectives are given weight.
We are supposed to consider their grievances as being valid…. as if their endless and ongoing anguish and victimism is genuine. We are expected to ignore their obvious treasure seeking *Vested interests* that really motivate their activities.
All this dishonesty is not about ‘righting the wrongs of the past’, but about plunder, power, and conquering a nation by stealth through Machiavellian political deception.
It is a despicable travesty that only continues because of the ignorance. impotence, and cowardice of the great majority of New Zealanders who are allowing the Maori Radicals and far left Socialist’s to slander the great generations of Pioneer Collonialists who built this country.
Yesterday I took my son to Auckland Museum to see the Tyrannosaurus Rex ‘Fossil Skeletons’.
The first thing you see as you approach the main entrance to the museum is a rainbow flag flying in parallel with the New Zealand Flag.
A bad omen, for it bares testimony to the fact that The Museum is operating not by objective truth, but under the Woke Political Agenda.
It was quite a sight to see Two Tyrant Lizards on display.
On an interactive screen one of the things you could check was ‘How much of these skeletons are real fossils’… and it turned out to be ‘Not much’.
So most of what was on display was ‘fabrications’ based upon ‘expert opinion’… and from ‘replicating fossils found elsewhere’. From looking at the displays themselves the fabricated portions were seamlessly blended, weathered, ‘aged’, etc so as to be unperceivable from the real portions.
This is intentional.
Think about that.
‘Creating the desired perception’ has taken precedence over the honest representation of bare facts… which could have easily been achieved by making the fabricated portions conspicuous by employing a slightly different hue.
At least they admitted the truth in the interactive interface.
I enjoyed the display, appropriate for primary school children to be awed.
I could not shake the sense that given how little of the skeletons were real fossils, that the display was disingenuine.
I think what has been done with the T Rex on display is an example of how the Woke staff contemptuously treat history in general… like it’s theirs to play charades with.
They do not allow the artifacts to speak for themselves but arrogantly impose upon visitors the radical far left interpretation of events.
This Political indoctrination acts like the carefully crafted artificial scaffold that supported the Tyrant Lizards upright.
The experts impost their own posture onto the bones of history to control the perceptions of the visitors.
Cringe Wokeness is everywhere.
Despite overt virtue signaling, there is indisputably a dearth of real ethics and integrity going on there.
It is apparent to me that the Museum’s current management are more focused upon presenting Politically correct ideological narratives than History as historically understood.
The Rainbow Picture above is from here: Auckland Museum recognised for Rainbow Excellence in inaugural awards.
Much of what is on display at the Museum today is fake… the degree of fakery has become extreme…
After seeing the Dinosaurs my son wanted to look at the War artifacts, and when we reached the gallery for the New Zealand Wars of the Mid-late 1800s, what was not on display was as conspicuous as what was on display.
What was being fed the public was barely history… Sir George Grey was not there… nor any of the Colonial heroes who defeated the Rebel Maori. Von Tempsky was not there.
Yet they had on display such villains as Kereopa Te Rau, who murdered the Missionary Carl Volkner in 1865 and ate his eyes (they did not mention this).
The only quote I saw from ‘King maker’ Wiremu Tamihana was deceitful in that it painted the Pakeha as the ones in error and the Kingites as doing the right thing.
I am not disputing the authenticity of the quote (though that is the only time I have ever herd it), I am disputing it’s lack of context and obvious bias involved in it’s selection for the display. Without context the quote is used to beguile.
It was selected from among thousand of his utterances, not for true history’s sake, but to push a specific modern day political agenda, for Tamihana was a very complex person who said many things at different times much of which is conflicting.
The Woke Staff at the Auckland Museum are presenting a heavily skewed version of events that is dishonest, revisionist, and Quazi.
So IMO the Museum is no longer a repository of history, but an engine of Woke propaganda… and it is shameful.
Like much of the fossil T Rexs on display, The history section about the New Zealand wars is also largely artificially scaffolded fabrication carefully crafted to appear real.
When I was young the Auckland Museum was one of my most favorite places to visit, the displays were plain, and only bare facts were put on small tags. In the silence visitors were left to their own thoughts.
People were free to wander about and chose how and what they wished to see.
Today things have changed, and not for the better. Now visitors must walk prescribed ‘tour paths’, and the Museum takes it upon itself to impose the official narratives upon visitors at every step. The displays have more ‘Props’ and ‘mock ups’ than actual artifacts.
I wonder How many truly wonderful artifacts are stacked in dusty boxes out back… removed from display to make room for all the Politically correct fakery???
There is so much phoniness about the museum these days, and unwitting people are more likely to emerge indoctrinated rather than educated.
That is by design.
You feel less like you have had an encounter with the relics of history and more like you have attended a woke political workshop.
This is not ‘inclusive’, but exclusive and narrow minded.
For a lover of History it is nauseating, and I could not wait to get out of there.
Update: 7-2-23 The Woke folk did exactly the same thing in Australia!
This smacks of WEF Globalist Agenda …..
In this video (above) we see Big Pharma Cartels using Puppet MP trying to prevent Official inquiries into the detrimental effects of the Mass Vaccination of the Human Race… saying a public inquiry ‘as a waste of money’.
This blatantly corrupt attempt to keep the UK public in the dark about the real magnitude of misery and death the vaccines caused… the extent that Censorship and misinformation (propaganda) was used to deceive the public into compliance thankfully was countered by more principled members of the House who demand transparency and accountability.
How can the societies of the world prevent future Political disasters and decent into tyranny if this Covid 19 Scamdemic is not exposed to the light?
Obviously the Evil powers that be, and the Mega Corporations who profited while everyone else were bankrupted, and imprisoned, and forcefully inoculated have a vested interest in maintaining their Massive Deception.
The Ardern regime’s Extreme Covid 19 measures here in New Zealand are singled out as some of the most absurd and oppressive failures of them all….
Our nation under far left extremist globalist Ardern has become a joke… at our expense.
All about the globe *her fellow W E F cultists* are deliberately seeking to derail their own economies… among a raft of suicidal enactments, deliberately sabotaging Fuel infrastructures and demonising Farming.
Like Ardern, none of these Woke radicals serve the interests of their own people but with complete disregard push their own ideological barrows with allegiance to the Globalist Elites of the World Economic Forum and the Great Reset.
We New Zealanders must throw Ardern from the steps of parliament next election… and not just her but *sweep clean our parliament of all who enabled and facilitated her extremist and un-Kiwi machinations.
We must restore our Democratic independence.
Likewise all other Nations must do the same.
Ardern has been by a long shot the greatest disaster to hit our nation for decades.
Far greater than earthquakes and foreign or domestic terrorists.
I suspect Her Body count is at least a magnitude higher than these tragedies.
In time I have little doubt it will be proven her extreme Covid 19 tyranny took more lives than the virus did… and reduced New Zealand to a Woke Socialist Police State.
Her time in power is a casebook study for what happens when you allow a far Left woke imbecile to take the reigns.
The greatest scam of all being how many dopey Kiwi bought into her Façade of ‘Kindness’.
In truth she is a heartless monster.
She is the dangerous radical that is running Amok all the while accusing ordinary Kiwis who clearly see through her lies of being ‘potentially domestic terrorists’.
Come on New Zealand!
You still won’t stand to defend our once great country of freedom and opportunity?
That is an indictment against our national character.
This is a symptom of systemic Social conditioning of diabolical proportions.
Th depth of apathy towards what Ardern is doing right in front of our faces, and level of sheepish compliance shows just how completely lobotomised we have become as a result of having our Universities lousy with post-truth intellectual frauds, imbibing cyanide from the Woke Globalist teets.
And this process… and the control of virtually all Social and Mainstream media is esp mind bending for the youth.
Why do you think the woke left about the Globe are pushing for the vote for 16 year olds?
Because the Woke left have this demographic under their sway at Universities and are indoctrinating them into Far left woke radicalism… violent and riotous Anti-capitalists… BLM types… Purple haired men haters…. an army of chaos to release upon our streets when parliament does not comply with the Globalist Woke agenda…. and esp to dilute the voting power of The Boomers and Gen X…. who know what the radical globalists are doing… and stand against their evil ambitions.
Our nations have never been so educated and stupefied… perfect for being manipulated, Controlled, and led down the garden path.
If anything the voting age should be raised, not lowered because in recent decades children spend much longer in schools… far higher percentages are delaying employment and attending Universities and Polytechs.
This means in real terms they cannot even be contributing the same paltry share to the national coffers as they would have been doing a decade ago.
16 year olds contribute nothing to the cost of running the country and it is dangerous to give the vote to any demographic that thinks that by voting a certain way they can get stuff ‘for free’… ie at the expense of other demographics.
We saw this Leftist ploy being used in the US when The Biden Administration tried to Bribe the youth vote by promising to wipe student debts.
This is utter corruption… yet nothing is beyond the pale for the Radical far Left in their pursuit and maintenance of Power.
And we all know 16 year olds do not have the life experience to shield them from sophisticated agenda driven political manipulation.
Know thy enemy.
Make no mistake people… The Woke Globalist Far Left Extremists are waging a Dirty ideological war against the Free and prosperous West…. and they are winning because there is no strong and principled organisation … of the people…. opposing them.
And like cancer… like rust that never sleeps Ardern and co are relentless in ramping up the Globalists stranglehold on the public discourse…. pushing for hate speech legislation… seeking to remain your ‘single source of truth’.
The Covid 19 Scamdemic proved that it is Political activists in power who are the greatest spreaders of Misinformation and falsehoods… the greatest peddlers of fake conspiracy theories…
They are the mass disseminators of dangerous delusions designed to deceive the public, and they attack Free speech because that is the most powerful weapon that exposes their Black intents.
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.
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!
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.
Read a short biography of James Cowan here.
” 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.
This is an outrage… This is Political oppression of those of us who do not bow down to our ‘Great leader’.
This is how Socialist Tyranny begins and is what happened in Venezuela to those who dared voice opposition to Chavez and Maduro.
Standard practice: Gun bans, and confiscations from critics of the Regime.
New Zealand is now headed down that road.
We can no longer be considered a free democratic Western Nation.
For the thought crime of speaking out against the Police State of Jacinda Ardern…..
Conservative Christian Pastor Carl Bromley has come under the Evil Eye several times over the past year.
He received visits from the NZ Police with regards to maintaining his religious right to hold small worship services in the face of a Covid Lockdown despite no cases of Covid being detected in the entire South Island.
This proved the lockdowns have little to do with medical science/ public health and everything to do with power and control… forcing mindless obedience and compliance… and breaking Christian resistance to tyranny.
Watch/Read a derogitory mainstream media post Newshub here….
It has been in response to such overt tyranny and rights violations that has alarmed many ordinary New Zealanders… how Draconian our nation has become under Comrade Ardern’s heavy hand.
Many are joining the growing peaceful protest movement against compulsory vaccinations, mask mandates, and lockdowns.
Some of the biggest demonstrations in the history of our nation have been going on in recent months all across the country and outside the Beehive, largely ignored by the compromised Mainstream media who are failing in their moral duty to keep NZ Citizens informed about real News that affects them. Whenever such protests are mentioned it is always in derogatory terms and purposeful falsehoods about the numbers of protesters in attendance.
All part of a concerted effort to Keep New Zealanders scared, Isolated, and in the dark about the scale of Democratic resistance to Ardern’s Globalist Tyranny.
The plan is to keep the sheeple thinking resistance is futile.
Carl Bromley is no sheep!
He is one such conservative New Zealander and Christian who has become alarmed at what has been going on under Ardern and has been actively doing his part to defend the Kiwi dream.
True to his Christian values and deep sense of community, He has been doing so in a completely peaceful manor motivated by high ideals and charity.
This is the sort of man he is… and yet the evil political powers of our day have an agenda they seek to Ram trough which is at sharp variance with New Zealand’s freedom loving, self reliant, and independent ways, and it is good people like Carl who stand in their way.
He and his ilk must therefore be stomped into submission and silenced.
Voice your disapproval of the Powers that be?… Lose your firearms license!
That’s how the system works now in NZ…esp if you are poor and cannot afford expensive lawyers.
By taking the side of freedom this peaceful Good man has found himself exposed to the hate and violence of Far left Radicals, and under the spotlight of a newly politicised Police State.
Peacefully fulfilling his moral duty as a concerned citizen and member of a Democratic society, Carl attends public rallies and protests.
These rallies are usually openly advertised… time and place on Social media sites… and this makes it possible for Radical Far Left Purple haired Gender confused supporters of Ardern’s tyranny to turn up and create trouble.
They have zero respect for Free speech and live to create chaos.
It was while attending such a rally that Carl was assaulted by a Far left Radical, and having also been slandered on-line Carl lodged a complaint with the Police.
They chose to ignore it.
Such is the state of our Nation… White Male Christian freedom advocates can be slandered and assaulted with Official impunity… esp when they have been flagged as being ‘Anti-government racist radicals’.
Like so many Vocal defenders of Kiwi Freedom and rights Carl has no doubt been put on the Police Shit list…(they have these now for political dissenters, bloggers, etc) while the real dangerous malicious radicals of the Far left operate openly… virtually with official sanction… as they share much in common with our Socialist PM.
Being flagged as a possible dangerous Extremist not only will make it harder for people like Carl to get the police to act on any complaints they make, it opens them up to being the target of Police intimidation and injustice.
This is happening now in New Zealand.
New Laws expose New Zealanders to heavy Police intrusions on the smallest of pretext.
Under such a climate all it takes to trigger a heavy handed response from the NZ Police is for some petty minded and malicious person who has a grudge against someone like Carl to make a false complaint.
And there is now a gang of Nasty Left wing Antifa types operating in New Zealand doing precisely this.
And they have been destroying peoples lives.
Please bear with me as I stitch together how what has happened to Carl fits into the big picture.
His is not an isolated case.
One high profile example of the activities of this malicious Far left Deplatform Gang’s was the sacking of Independent You Tuber and political commentator Lee Williams.
Lee, via his ‘Cross the Rubicon’ You Tube channel was very critical of Jacinda Ardern’s globalist politics, and was also locked into an online ideological war with several members of the Radical Far left Deplatform Gang.
Jealous of Lee Williams growing You tube following These nasty underhanded radicals used slanderous lies to blackmail Lee’s then Employers Synlait Dairy company with ‘Employing White Supremacist’s’. Synlait caved into this extortion and sacked Lee for the sake of avoiding damage to their companies reputation.
Lee is not a White Supremacist!
Lee in fact challenged systemic racism embedded in the New Zealand system in favour of racial quality before the law!
That was Lee’s crime… pointing out the corrupt racism inherent in our system.
Yet the Liars prevailed and Lee’s life was destroyed.
To escape the persecution he was facing Lee left New Zealand.
All this made the national news (except the truth about this being a Far left extremist extortion Con job).
Lee’s struggles were better covered by independent media sites like The BFD, and Blogs like ‘Eternal vigilance’, and others.
Lee got zero justice from the New Zealand Police for what he endured… The fraudulent slander and extortion that led to his unfair dismissal.
Because Lee in their book was flagged as a ‘troublemaker’ who does not deserve fair treatment.
So Like Carl’s complaint to the Police about being assaulted… Lee’s injustice also was not investigated.
The deplatforming gang faced zero legal consequences for their extortion racket, which will have only served to embolden them to continue.
Lee’s condemnation of Ardern’s Apartheid ambitions centered around her secreting of the He Pua Pua report that is a blueprint for handing over vast resources and powers to Maori Tribal Elites reached the halls of Power in particular Ardern’s Collaborators in the Maori Party.
These MPs joined in on the extortion of Synlait Dairy company, and persecution of Lee… some even calling for his residency to be revoked and for him to be deported.
All this because Lee spoke his personal political views on a small Youtube channel!
With this sort of persecution going on for anyone voicing dissenting opinions, you can easily imagine the dampening effect this has had on open political discourse in New Zealand.
You can be sure New Zealand Intelligence services opened up a Dossier on Williams and began collating who his associate were, etc, with a view of painting them as ‘Potential Domestic Terrorists’.
Picture: ‘Cross the Rubicon’ Youtuber Lee Williams.
It is public knowledge that Carl Bromely is a close friend of Lee Williams.
Carl is a man who stood up in defense of Lee when he was undergoing his ordeal.
This activity puts yet another X against his name in Police files.
Even if we put aside Carl’s own defiance regarding his right to worship, his mere association with Lee Williams is reason alone for us to suspect the New Zealand Police have a low opinion of Carl and care little about what injustices he suffers at the hands of Far Left extremists.
To the far Left, virtually everybody else on the political spectrum is considered ‘far right’.
From his bold defense of Lee Williams Carl will have drawn upon himself the malevolent attention of the Deplatforming Gang who destroyed his friends life.
You don’t need to be Sherlock Holmes to suspect that Carl Bromley is most likely the latest target of this well known Far Left Deplatforming Gang.
The police ought to have been aware of the high probability the complaint questioning Carl’s fitness to hold a firearms license was a malicious lie.
If this proves to be true it makes what the Police did to Carl Bromely not simply an act of gross incompetence… but a serious pre-meditated injustice.
Either the Police were easily fooled into committing violence against an innocent man, or they knew the complaint was fraudulent yet moved to take Carl’s gun anyway!
That’s blatant corruption!
Carl called the complaint ‘Bogus’ and we can be certain that it was Bogus because of Carl’s impeccable character.
Carl has Zero Police record, yet given how the Gun Laws work and Police powers and discretion, it is very difficult *for anyone* to srutinise whether or not the Police are acting upon accurate information because the whole process is cloaked in secrecy… so basically… unless you can raise a ton of cash for Lawyers etc… The Police can do whatever they please… and fabricate bogus arguments that arbitrarily call *anyone’s character or mental fitness* into question to quazi-justify their Draconian activities.
Where is the impartial oversight in how such cases are executed whereby abuses can be called out?
This must be investigated.
The veracity of the complaint that was used to raid Carls home must be scrutised.
At a minimum this raid shows that there is a lack of safeguards protecting citizens from suffering such an arbitrary home invasion by the police and confiscation of legitimately held firearms.
The Far Left Deplatforming gang must broken up, and face criminal charges.
These things must be done and yet the political corruption of our democracy is far more serious than the activities of a malicious gang of Far left Nut jobs.
The Police need to own up to their grievous error and return Carl’s lawful property.
They need to compensate him for the damages they caused and the torment they inflicted on his wife.
And most importantly they must expunge from his records any hint of wrongdoing that might stain his reputation in the future.
There is the serious matter of the attitude of the Police towards a Good Kiwi Citizen who had done nothing wrong, but simply expressed his vocal critisism of the government of the day.
I want you my reader to understand how the Ardern Regime has politisised the Police and turned them into an instrument for attacking the democratic rights of New Zealanders who want to see Ardern thrown out of office… via the democratic process… which includes the rights to free speech, to assemble, and to protest.
These are absolutely essential for the just functionality of a democratic system of governance whereby those in power only hold office by the ongoing consent of the governed.
What must be understood is that not only did Ardern shamelessly capitalise on the Christchurch Terror attack to confiscate New Zealand citizens guns, She also used this atrocity as a justification for weaponising the Police against her political opponents.
Notice how holding religious views, or political opinions outside the mainstream is viewed as Potential Terrorist traits.
And the assertion that our ‘Open internet’ makes us vulnerable to terrorist attacks!
Hmmmm so the government should take control of the internet… ‘to keep us safe from terrorism’… yeah right!
That way they could block Youtube channels Like Lee’s and Carl’s that critisise Ardern’s genius!
Yes! that will make New Zealand ‘Safer from terrorism’.
Notice how the democratic right to protest has been lumped next to terrorism by the simple addition of the word ‘Violent’. So in the mindset of the Police, anyone who attends a protest could be a potential Terrorist.
Is that really a fair and just… or sane way for the Police to look at Citizens exercising their Democratic rights?
Is the likelihood of New Zealand suffering a serious Terrorist attack really ‘Medium’ or Low?
It serves Ardern’s Political purposes to say the likelihood of terrorist attack is “Medium, feasible, and could well occur” because this allows her to put the Police and army in a state of Active preparation.
“Get out there and find those Anti-government Far Right White supremacist religious Extremist Domestic terrorists!!!! Start by snooping about on You Tube! Anyone who does not like Jacinda Ardern is probably a terrorist!”
The government’s own counter terrorist web page states…
“Our strongest defence against terrorism is a cohesive, resilient society.”
With this in mind it must be pointed out that heavy handed Police raids etc *has the very opposite effect!*
Such draconian behaviour is not conducive to harmonious social order but fosters resentment and outrage… and rightly so!
If the Police wanted to promote a cohesive resilient society they would respect the rights of the people to hold their own views.
They should respect liberty and enforce the law fairly and without political prejudice.
And yet we see at so many points Arderns ‘Inclusive Society’ excludes anyone who disagrees with her personal Political ideology.
Ardern demands obedience and submission by all.
We are expected to allow her to do what ever she pleases without murmur.
That is not how a Free society functions.
That is how a Dictatorship functions.
By becoming heavy handed the Police themselves are creating civil unrest.
While I personally believe the threat of Terrorism is extremely low, given how belligerent Ardern has been towards the rights of the New Zealand people, and mobilising the Police against her detractors… the threat of Anti-Ardern Protests turning ugly is inevitably on the rise.
Ardern seeks to use the Police as a shield while she continues to radically alter our Nation with absolute contempt for due process and the safeguards that would normally prevent such Autocratic behavior.
She has seen the growing protests. She knows she no longer enjoys the support of the people.
This is why under Ardern protests are being viewed by Police as potential Terrorist activities.
Democracy is fundamentally about the peaceful transfer of power based upon the will of the people, yet socialist dictators once in power have a long history of subverting democracy for the sake of retaining power… at any price.
Peaceful, good natured, freedom loving Carl Bromley, as a religious person who holds strong resentment for what Comrade Ardern is doing tick’s a heck of a lot of her government’s ‘Counter-Terrorism ‘ Boxes’, and we can be sure that they wanted to take away his guns ( make no mistake… they would like to take away everyone’s guns!).
Getting a fake complaint was what they were waiting for… and all they needed to do precisely that.
This fixation on ‘Domestic terrorism’ is a psychological contagion that has poisoned the New Zealand Polices outlook towards the people they serve.
It has turned them into Ardern’s Goon Squad.
Keeping the people in line and under her subjection.
So the New Zealand Police have been diverted from busting burglars and rapists and turned into policing political opinions.
I fear the Police are being prepped for war against the citizens of our country.
The Political elites know their Covid Bullshit is hurting a lot of people and making them very pissed off.
They realise that growing Public outrage to what the Ardern regime is hell bent on doing is highly likely to escalate into serious civil unrest.
The mask of ‘Kindness’ has fallen.
As our Cold hearted Great Leader shows Iron resolve to push through her revolutionary agenda at any price, She has implemented a heavy handed strategy to keep the people in check.
This is what Anti-democratic tyranny looks like!
No Joke. I believe the Police are in full preparation to put down a popular uprising against the State.
All the signs are there to see.
This puts the Police in opposition to the will of the people, propping up the unpopular dictatorial power.
This Police State makes the democratic peaceful transfer of power impossible and creates the conditions for serious civil unrest.
What Globalist influences have been at work indoctrinating our Police to prevent the New Zealand people defending our National Autonomy?
Have they been warned about the coming Global economic collapse?
Have they been warned about the Great Reset and move towards a Global cashless society?
It is only these sorts of scenario that makes what they have been doing lately explicable.
All their activities are flagrant attempts to forcefully suppress voices of opposition to Ardern’s Rule.
This same scenario is being played out in democracies all across the globe. Many nations have their own ‘Globalist Ideologues’ at the helm whose actions clearly demonstrate their loyalty is to the New World Order, not their own peoples independence. And people in these nations can see they are being taken for a ride to a destination they don’t want to be.
We have just seen peaceful Anti Vax Mandates/ Anti-lockdown protests in the Netherlands explode into all out riots.
Even though All Protests in New Zealand have been absolutely peaceful, it would be foolish for us not to appreciate that the New Zealand government is watching such overseas events with trepidation and that as such are unjustly transferring their fears that similar things could happen here. The Globalists seeking to subjugate the planet have also calculated how to prevent popular uprisings from thwarting their ultimate goals, and it is with this in mind that their minions in every Nation have been politicising and conditioning the Police and military to be prepared to use their arms against their own Citizens… as enemies of the State.
History is irrefutable that this is how Socialist Systems operate and maintain themselves… by keeping the people down. Under Jacinda Ardern our Nation is sinking fast!
We have now reached a point where to protest against what she is doing is to risk being labeled a danger to the State and losing your firearms license!
Only subservient supporters of the Regime get to enjoy such privilege!
Where does the loyalty of the average Policeman stand?
Any Police reading this need to ask themselves this important moral question.
Is it the duty and purpose of the Police to stand With the People and defend their rights… or do they consider it their job to be the Mindless enforcers of the Party Politicians who have managed to get hold of the levers of Power?
If Americans ever wondered what it would be like if Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was running the USA they need look no further than how Jacinda Ardern has behaved while she has been at the helm in New Zealand.
Like AOC Ardern is a far Left Extremist. Like AOC Ardern has zero grip on the real world, or the catastrophe far left political ideology represents.
Ardern clearly shows she is prepared to lie, deceive, bankrupt our nation, and create a police state to impose her globalist delusions upon the people of New Zealand.
She has been the Perfect Storm.
Take a look at what happened in Venezuela when the shit hit the fan and the tyrannical Socialist government bankrupted the Nation and started killing it’s own citizens who dared protest.
Today Venezuela is in ruins and its people are starving… where would you stand if you were a member of the Police in such a crisis?
Where ought your loyalties lie?
It could very well be that with the ever increasing stranglehold this government places on the throats of the New Zealand public, that unless peaceful protests prevail in reversing our nations freefall into Totalitarianism… The struggle could turn very ugly… Peaceful means having failed it could come to civil war… The People vs the Corrupt State.
Unless they are prepared to disobey unjust orders, The New Zealand Police could quickly become like so many Jackbooted thugs in Communist Nations used to crush, Murder, and imprison Good brave Citizens who have been compelled to turn to Force to oust the tyrants who have sort to destroy and oppress their Nations.
In such cases the Criminals are the ones in power.
Far be it from me to ever advocate for such a situation!
Though the right of revolution to overthrow tyrannical government is a fundamental right of the people, it is for me too terrible to be contemplated.
If attempted it would also be highly likely to fail, and result in greater atrocities and injustices.
Unless the Military and the Police were on the side of the people.
We should watch what happens now in the Netherlands very carefully.
Will the Netherlands government capitulate in the face of such Violent protests or will they double down on their tyranny?
What will happen is depended upon how far the Socialist globalists in power there are prepared to go to retain their grip on power.
I believe the greatest hope Freedom advocates everywhere have of winning Freedom back is to shun all acts of Violence, Vandalism, Rioting, and destruction, and instead maintain our peaceful stand… even in the face of such injustices as have been dished out to Carl Bromely.
We should rally around such people.
We must protest against what was done, and yet we ought to remain civil at all times… This makes it very difficult for the tyrants to deploy the Jackboots against us with Full fury… because More people see what they are doing… see how unjust the régime is… and their ability to govern evaporates.
With the passing of time more and more people join the ranks of Resistance.
Despite such atrocities as Tiananmen Square in 1989
Peaceful resistance can break the resolve of all but the most brutal of tyrannies.
History proves that Peaceful people movements can defeat vastly stronger Political interests.
Two noteworthy examples are the Peaceful protest movements of Mahatma Ghandi and Martin Luther King Junior.
The essential thing is for the People to stand in protest *before* such Absolute tyranny gains a strong grasp.
Given that the New Zealand people have zero stomach for Bloody Revolution and little means by which such measures might be achieved, Peaceful resistance offers the best prospects of success by far.
So I assert that Peaceful resistance is not only the Higher moral path, but also is the most pragmatic reason for hope that we shall prevail in keeping our Nation Independent and Free from the Globalist Tyranny.
But to achieve this we must Bravely stand together!
We cannot allow such things as happened to Our Boy Carl Bromley to go unchallenged, without voicing strong displeasure and a demand for justice.
The Police need to be censured and know New Zealanders will not respect them unless they respect our rights!
What happened to Carl ought to stimulate us to stand even more resolved for our Free Nation!
We cannot allow such vile police State antics to become the norm.
Nor should we tolerate the Police’s Anti-private Firearm ownership attitude.
This in itself shows the Police have become arrogant and forget their place… that is as our servants.
Citizens have strong gun Rights… Slaves do not.
The Freedom movement must also be on the watch for Subversive ‘Wolves in sheeps clothing’ entering in among us seeking to corrupt our movement from within.
Beware any so-called freedom activists who start to promote Hatred, violence, or Riotous behavior.
It is only by walking the righteous path that we can avoid being legitimately labeled a danger to civil order.
Any Civil disobedience must be 100% peaceful. The evil powers that be would love to see the freedom movement collapse into Mayhem, for that would be their opportunity to send in the jackboots.
As long as we adhere to Peaceful Protest we have the upper hand and occupy the Moral high ground.
Peacefully Protest. Peacefully Resist. Peacefully refuse to Comply.
I speak with certainty that Carl Bromley will whole heartedly agree with those sentiments.
I will also say We must never surrender our rights. We will not show our papers. We will not accept a cashless system. We will not surrender our National independence to any Global overlords.
Carl Bromley is a man of Peace, Freedom, and Justice.
Watch (below) what Carl had to say only a few weeks ago… and what probably triggered some Radical leftist or some Ardern Minion in Government to target him and conspire to get the New Zealand Police to oppress him.
As I only found out about this Bill a few days ago, and leaned that the Public’s right to make submissions was also closing by midnight tonight, I made my own submission in haste, and for that reason it is not my best work by a long shot… and yet given how the Diabolical Engine of Comrade Ardern Steams forward, I simply had to submit something.
I have made a couple of spelling fixes to what I submitted… etc.
Some people might think my submission is whack.
I certainly know some of my ‘recommendations’ will be open to challenge in the sense that it might be a struggle for me to be able to justify them completely via Libertarian principles, and I am happy to discuss any criticisms on that basis… I simply have not had time to chew on these matters to the degree that I can offer a fully cogent argument. I was running on intuition that I will be able to defend most of what I have said.
I also decided I needed to be fully open about my religious views about what is at stake.
I realise many readers will take these views to completely discredit me as a serious thinker… you are entitled to your own opinion in that regard… yet I stand unapologetically by what I have said.
Ok… that’s enough of an intro….
Digital Identity Services Trust Framework Bill. Submission by Tim Wikiriwhi, Christian Libertarian.
“The more corrupt the State, the more it legislates….”
Tacitus. Roman Historian. 1st century AD.
New Zealanders currently have no shortage of ways and means to identify ourselves.
New Zealanders have been able to conduct plenty of business globally, and securely via the internet so we must ask… why all of a sudden does this government feel the need to pass this legislation?
Please spare me the trite about this being a genuine need and request by the people for such legislation.
The desire is not coming from the people… but from ideologues in power … with a nefarious agenda they are not prepared to openly admit.
This is about a grand scheme… a globalist centralisation of power and legimisation of the Global ID system into New Zealand Law.
Step by incremental step.
This ID system is the foundation for that planned Global Government, a Social credit system that discriminates every individual persons ‘privilege’s’ dependent on their compliance with the powers that be, and a new Global monetary system whereby all transactions are sanctioned, and monitored by the Evil Eye.
This is happening because our current financial systems have been driven into the ground, and yet the super wealthy, and powerful see this as an opportunity to further entrench their own Domination over the masses.
This Digital ID system is the basis for a planned New World order without privacy.
All these things require a Global digital Id be allocated to every human being.
Since Jacinda Ardern has become Prime minister of New Zealand our Rights and Liberties have been severely degraded by relentless and systematic legislative assault. Our nation has been intentionally consciously driven head long into financial ruin.
None of this was fated.. or unavoidable… because of unfortunate circumstances.
All of it has been deliberate… calculated. And History will condemn what has been done!
Generations will pay the price for this Gross and intentional mismanagement… (because this ruin will lead to the great Reset)!
Every MP who has aided Ardern in these infamous achievements must take their share of culpability.
So much of her legislative legacy has been enacted in blatantly anti-democratic fashion… under the guise of ‘Emergencies’.
For example Jacinda Ardern expounded her socialist doctrine that ‘Gun ownership is not a right… but a privilege’ … and yet her succeeding legislative measures and dictates show us Ardern does not believe we the people have any rights at all that are beyond her power to over rule!
For example the New Zealand Bill of rights section 11 which state no New Zealander can be compelled to take medical treatments against their will… evidently this too Ardern sees not really as a right… but yet just another ‘privilege’ government temporarily entertained.. but now revokes… despite having publicly stated she would never do such a thing!
If a New Zealander does not own their own body… We have no rights!
Ardern is a Socialist Tyrant and is molding our country to more resemble North Korea, and China every day!
Our Parliament is filled with spineless, clueless, morally bankrupt weasels who allow Arden to enact her radical Socialist Globalist ambitions that are not shared by anywhere near a majority of Kiwis!
Most Kiwis want their old country back!
This ‘new normal’ Sux!
It is a travesty to pretend anything less than an undemocratic Revolution is underway being legislated by stealth… and this Digital Identity Services Trust Framework Bill is undoubtedly another step in this direction.
It is Undemocratic in it’s enactment because of the lack of time given for public submissions.
It is Undemocratic because of the lack of public notification that this legislation is even eminent!
I guarantee that if a poll was taken that only a tiny percentage definitely in the single digits are even aware of what you Sneaky devils are up to!
And this is intentional on your part… you want to quietly enact this legislation… without the public catching on to what you are doing… because then you would face the anger of the people!
This legislation is part of *A Global framework* for a Global system… a New World Order!
This will underpin a new cashless Global financial system that is planned under the title ‘The Great Reset’.
And this makes what you are doing treasonous to the Nation of New Zealand and our National Independence and our Democratic Sovereignty.
Little New Zealand is well on the way to being swallowed up by the Globalist system.
New Zealanders would never voluntarily surrender these things and you all know it!
That is why you are today quietly… sneakily enacting this Bill… and we know it will become law… despite how the balance of public submissions fall… as these processes have become a travesty… merely feigning ‘due process’.
This shystery is not just happening here in New Zealand but is being simultaneously being set up in all nations by globalist minions whom expect to enjoy privileged positions in the NWO.
It will not win me many friends to say the following… That matters not… what matters is that I boldly declarer the Truth… and that is that the Bible forewarned the world this New world order… this Satanic Tyranny would one day arrive … it calls this the system of the Beast.
Sinners be warned!
God will judge every servant of Satan who participated in the system of the Antichrist!
And yet God has mercy and salvation for whomsoever puts their trust in the cross of Christ and his resurrection.
“God commendeth his love towards us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us”
Romans 5vs 8. KJV
I make the following recommendations… that will be ignored because you don’t care about the rights and Freedom of New Zealanders … or our independent National sovereignty… still… I ask that you make no laws that shall erode our right to use Cash, or to make private non-electronic transactions.
I ask that you make no laws that make having digital Ids compulsory.
I ask you expressly prohibit New Zealanders from being allocated any digital ID without their consent and make it illegal for any private companies operating in New Zealand to make subscribing to a global digital ID system as a mandatory condition for any business transaction.
I ask you absolutely prohibit any Global initiative to remove cash as a means of transactions.
I ask you make it absolutely illegal for Banks to freeze accounts on the basis that Citizens refuse to switch over to a cashless system, and make it law that all banks must continue to honor cash withdrawals, All businesses must accept cash, and all businesses and individuals must pay their employees in cash should they so desire it.
I ask that it be stipulated in law that no NZ Government agency can demand of any New Zealand citizen that they must accept and use a Digital ID to enjoy any of their rights, or to have full access to government services.
I stipulate these things to safeguard New Zealanders rights from being compelled into subjection to any globalist scheme designed to entrap individuals and prevent them from being able to participate in New Zealand society, to provide for themselves, to run businesses, to work, buy, and sell, unless they submit to the Global ID system and cashless society.
Failure to do these things will evidence the true intention of this Bill… to take away New Zealanders privacy and autonomy, and to ensnare us all in the New World order for which none of us have voted for.
Finally I state that it is without shame I make my submission as a Christian Libertarian.
I know that the spirit of Antichrist is at work in the hearts and minds of many in power today… esp Jacinda Ardern… and that these evil people see Christianity as an enemy of everything they seek to achieve… and they are right!
No Christian can support their Evil New World Order.
No Christian can believe their false Socialist gospel!
And yet Christians like myself preach peaceful non-compliance and Resistance to tyranny.
It is a great political lie that is being propagated in the corrupt mainstream media that those of us who refuse to support compulsory Covid 19 vaccinations, refuse to support the lockdowns, reject the ‘new normal’, and all the other curtailments of our rights that we represent ‘a dangerous element’… or harbour ‘domestic terrorists’ in our midst, etc.
This misinformation is being sown to condition the Police and Army into perceiving our legitimate democratic group as being malicious and of criminal intent, setting up the political climate for our systematic oppression… Satan Laughing spreads his wings!
Let anyone with an ear to hear… let them realise the things I am saying are the truth!
As a Christian, I will preach for New Zealanders to peacefully stand up for their rights so that their children may enjoy the Same freedoms we once had… yet that are being stolen from us by Dangerous Radical Socialists.
WE can defeat them… by peaceful, principled people power!
Yet We must stand up now!
These are our legitimate democratic rights!
We have the moral duty to resist tyranny!
We cannot allow our free nation to be stollen from us. We must preserve it for our children and future generations of Kiwis.
Christian Libertarian… and Engineer.
The other day I was chatting with a friend about all the lockdowns and government demands everyone get vaxed.
He thinks Jacinda Ardern has well and truly lost the plot!
He is a very mild non-political young man who just wants to get on with the business of living, yet he had no trouble recognising just how evil Ardern has become… how she is turning our nation into a Police State!
He was expressing his personal growing angst about being imprisoned in the Waikato and said it meant he was missing out on seeing Family outside the blockade.
I told him he was far from alone in his feelings, and asked if he had any idea at how many Hamiltonians showed up to the Anti-Covid 19 lockdown and Anti-Compulsory Vaccination protest that had occurred in the Weekend at Claudlands showground?
He had no idea any such public protests even occurred?
He assumed what the media had told him… that resistance to the Ardern Strategy was tiny and only a small bunch of whackos were resisting getting the Jab.
Freedoms and Rights Coalition Waikato’s democratic protest against Lockdowns and Vax mandates. Claudelands showground 11am. Oct30 (est 5000 people)
He was shocked when I showed him some photos of the event which I had down loaded from ‘The Freedom and Rights Coalition’ web page… Thousands of Hamiltonians protesting! (Est 5000)
My friend is like so many New Zealanders who have had a guts full of Arderns incompetence and Tyranny yet who are being kept in the dark about the scale of outrage other New Zealanders are also feeling and that he is far from alone!
Among other outrages, almost 9500 business went belly up last month, and this sort of disastrous consequence of Arderns Jackbooted policies is now fueling a popular uprising. People are incensed by her indifference to their suffering and have had a guts full of her complete disregard for their Rights and liberties.
30-10-21 was a day of National Protest in which tens of thousands of New Zealanders gathered together in defiance of the Ardern regimes illegitimate and oppressive legal prohibitions that seek to circumvent New Zealanders Democratic rights!
The estimated 5000 peaceful protester’s in Hamilton were not standing alone as there were significantly larger demonstrations taking place simultaneously in both Auckland and Wellington.
Yours truly holding up his home made banner.
The diabolical nature of the Ardern Regime (and Socialist Globalist regimes across Western civilisation) is that they have been using their powers to impose Covid 19 restrictions to prevent the voting public from gathering together to demonstrate their opposition to the financial ruin they are generating and the Police States they are cultivating while demanding the people shut up and let it happen!
Under the sham of Public safety Anti-democratic Covid restrictions prohibiting Public gatherings make it risky for citizens to assemble and by controlling the media has allowed the Government to pull the wool over a vast percentage of the population… that no resistance is even being attempted.
Individuals who are alarmed at what is happening are isolated.
Many of those who are bravely resisting compliance with big Bully Ardern in solitude feel as if their struggle is hopeless, because they are not aware of any support groups for their plight.
They don’t realise the battle is now well underway to put Ardern back in her box!
Many unwilling people will have surrendered to what they assume is a lost cause.
To those whom have been holding out for their rights I am writing this blog post to say Despair no more! The Freedoms and Rights Coalition has put out the call to Kiwis to rise up in exercise of our legitimate democratic rights to gather together and protest against Comrade Ardern’s oppression!
Too many Kiwi only get their information from the Mainstream.
Jacinda Ardern has New Zealand’s media snuggly tucked into her back-pocket.
Our Card-carrying Media are operating like a wing of the Governments Propaganda department… filtering news stories and censoring themselves… the effect is that New Zealanders think the whole country Loves Ardern and is falling into line. because they only hear stories that promote Ardern.
The Truth is quite different.
Ardern is economically devastating our nation… almost 9500 businesses folded last month!
A popular protest movement is growing fast.
Big protests have already taken place without almost any Mainstream media coverage… and the stories that have emerged have down played the numbers of people protesting and made out it is just the whacko-conspiracy nut jobs.
The Truth is Ardern’s tyranny is uniting the people against her… The people protesting are both young and Old, Maori and Pakeha… it is a beautiful thing to behold!
They are boldly chanting for Freedom!
Yet most New Zealanders are completely unaware that the tide is turning against Comrade Ardern’s Dictatorship… and yet it is!
I wrote about our corrupt media back in 2012 yet they have gotten ten times worse now under Ardern and her blatant bribery… with strings attached… and all the woke Leftist Anti-free speech doctrines that have sprung up in the last decade…. Read LOST PLOT. WORLD PRESS FREEDOM DAY.
Because the Media have sold out to the government it is very difficult for the word to reach the people about planned protests.
That is what makes spreading the word so important to this movement.
Supporters are using their social media pages, and emails, texts, etc.
I was told only the day before that these events were planned, and knowing that they would not receive any objective press, I decided I would go see the event so that I could report back to the New Zealand public.
I needed to get the exercise, and this would be far more interesting than walking in my local park…again.
Many people were practicing peaceful Civil disobedience… not wearing any masks, and not social distancing, others (much less) were wearing masks and standing apart, and as I believe that for the sake of not generating unnecessary animosity against this righteous cause, nor to give pretext to the Police to break up the Demonstration and start arresting people, I chose to wear a mask (most of the time) and try to keep my distance as much as possible, and I appreciate why so many people were choosing to defy these oppressive and farcical measures.
The thing to remember is that whether or not people chose to wear masks and social distance, and despite the way such protesters are portrayed in the Ardern funded media as being reckless loons whose behavior is an endangerment to the Law abiding (AKA Compliant and Complicit Sheeple), this is in fact an example of Civil disobedience at it’s highest form… because these people were simply exercising their legitimate rights!
In fact it was a display of the Bold assertion and exercise of their rights that the Ardern Régime has attempted to tread underfoot via passing unjust and oppressive Laws!
Ironically… Had she not done so… Had she actually done the right thing and respected the rights of the people… there would have been no need to protest!
So Ardern herself is the chief author of this entire mess!
She is a Tyrant, and it is the Right and moral duty of a free and enlightened people to Rally against her!
Ardern’s Tyranny is a far greater threat to our Nations well being than Covid 19!
Every hour she is at the helm the people of New Zealand lose their freedoms, and livelihoods, and our Nation becomes more like China!
Under the belief that Covid 19 was truly a raging fury, Long suffering Kiwis have quietly tolerated Ardern’s ever creeping Authorotarianism, yet she has finally crossed the line and has now turned massive sections of the People against her.
They have had enough!
They have gotten wise to the fact that the dangers posed by Covid 19 have been grossly exaggerated in the extreme to cause panic and compliance.
They have begun ignoring her oppressive laws… and it is this peaceful and principled Non-compliance that will break the Ardern regime!
This is Freedom and democracy in action against an oppressive Government.
This is what must be done when our rights are under threat from Socialist tyranny!
Let those who are scared of Covid 19 wear masks all day and stay locked up safe in their homes!
They have no right to demand everyone else share their paranoia or be confined to their homes simply to make the propagandised and traumatised neurotics feel comfortable in their sheepish cowardly delusions.
It is shameful that though I cannot tell you the name of the chief Waikato Coordinator and speaker as I have not yet been able to discover it.
When I do, I shall edit this article to include it for this man is heroically leading this protest movement from the Front!
I do know that he is a Christian Pastor… Amen Brother!
I did not hear the beginning of his speech, and yet the portions which I did hear filled me with respect and courage!
I agreed with every word!
His manner (and his Mana) was profound!
He spoke of his motivation for doing this as being love… not anger.
He said he hoped this whole movement would be characterised by love and peaceful action, and unity.
He said he knew that Covid 19 was a real disease, but that he was not scared of it.
He spoke of keeping the whole event as short as possible for the sake of not being unduly burdensome and testing on the Police.
He said he had already been finned for organising a previous protest and expected to be finned again for this one, yet he told the crowd he was ok with that and not to be angry with the Police. He said there were many good people in the Police force who have been placed in a very difficult position by the Ardern Government.
And most of all, and in finishing he made the most rousing call for the people to put their fears aside and boldly stand up for Freedom!
As a Libertarian, that was a special moment that near brought tears to my eyes!
In my 20 years of Activism I had never seen or herd anything as glorious as this!
I realised that Freedom is not dead in New Zealand!
There is hope!
Finally he said a karakia (prayer) for the people, and our country and referenced the National Anthem that had been sung at the beginning of the event (I missed that).
He prayed that ‘The God of Nations’ would “Defend our Free land” and have grace upon our country and bless the people present and the task they were undertaking for Freedom and justice sake… and that New Zealand would not in this hour be lost.
He called upon God in Jesus Name… and the people… Old and Young, Maori, Pakeha, and many other hues with heads bowed said Amen.
Tide is now turning against Ardern’s socialist tyranny… New Zealanders have had enough and want their lives and freedom back!
Since this weekend Ardern has met more protests including one in Whanganui which prevented her delivering a press conference.
This has started to rattle her and expose the truth that she no longer enjoys the adoration of New Zealanders.
For the first time I have seen her being asked awkward questions at an interview.
She had to call another press conference short because she was being heckled… exposing just how fragile her personality really is!
One of my social media friend made the following observation…
“PM Jacinda Ardern who’s augments are so weak that she runs away from one person that challenges her. 😏 Absolutely pathetic…”
Jacinda Ardern’s facade has now cracking, and many people who were once taken in by her Staged Act of ‘Hugs’ and talk of ‘Kindness’ now see her for the Dangerous Machiavellian she really is and has always been… a Wolf in sheeps clothing.
She is having difficulty hiding her true colours.
Her open contempt for We the people she is Lording over is staggering!
More protests are planned.
This is just the beginning!
As yet another truly great New Zealander who has been doing so much to defend our Rights from this Socialist Globalist Plandemic… Lawyer Sue Grey… in Wellington said it was great to see people ‘stepping up into their power’ and that when we stand together ‘We can do anything’ and…
“They can’t stop us taking our Freedom back!”
Sue Grey has become a hero of mine for she is doing what I would like to think Good Lawyers ought to do… that is boldly taking on the powers that be, and using their Lawyer-craft to win Justice and freedom for the little people suffering State oppression and injustice.
The Freedoms and Rights Coalition asks you to support them!
Note: I did not take any photos. All pictures in this article were either supplied to me by other people, or ‘liberated’ from other web pages (Credits given). This is important because I do not wish to expose the identities of any protesters without their consent. Thus I have not published any photos that are not already in the public domain without permission.
