The small Bay of Plenty Town of Opotiki was centre stage for New Zealand news this week after a regional Gang Boss was murdered.
The victim was Mongrel Mob ‘Barbarians’ Chapter President Stephen Rota Taiatini.
Word is he was taken out… Run down by a Ute… following shortly after MM associates did a hit on a rival gang residence, thus fueling fears of a Gang war.
News media report the town became ‘locked down’, not by Police investigating the crime, but was ‘taken over’ by the Mongrel Mob, as gang members from far and wide congregated in Opotiki in a display of Gang solidarity and strength.
They were controlling who was allowed in and out of certain areas.
Gang ‘Tangi’ are some of the biggest funerals that happen in New Zealand, esp when the deceased is a Gang Boss.
Hundreds of motorcycles, trucks, and gang sleds rumbling about, doing burn outs and other general Thuggy deeds. Schools shut down for fears of children’s safety.
Media says the Police are out numbered and have lost control of the situation.
This could not have happened at a worse time for New Zealand’s crumbling Woke Labour government.
Jacinda Ardern destroyed the Kiwi Dream and then abandoned her country leaving her political comrades to bear the fallout of her incompetence, our angry nation reeling under heavy inflation and a violent crime wave.
True to her own megalomania she now gives zero fucks about what’s happening in her wake. She’s ‘reluctantly’ accepted a Damehood, and is moving on to far more important things.
It has been the fate of Chris Hipkins to inherit her legacy and despite trying to back peddle on many of Ardern’s unpopular Woke policies, Labour is looking at defeat to a National and Act Party coalition.
Limp wristed Policing under woke Ardern is being blamed for a huge spike in violent crime, armed robberies, and Ram raids, etc. The NZ Police having been Rainbow-ised woke-a-fied and told not to pursue criminals, but allow them to get away… for fear they might crash. The Labour Government’s ‘Dis-information project’ leading the narrative that White supremacy, and far right ideology are the greatest dangers running rampant in New Zealand communities. ( Not Crime, Not Gangs, Not Maori radicalism, Not Green Extremism) Our Radical Leftist government and their extremist auxiliaries in the Green Party and the Maori Party are retraining the NZ Police to think ordinary New Zealanders who seek to retain their traditional rights and values are New Zealand’s greatest criminal elements!
What is now happening in Opotiki demonstrates all this and so much more.
Chris Hipkins and the Police have characteristically bumbled this situation.
As soon as news of this murder reached Police HQ, Bus loads of Police should have been dispatched quick smart to Opotiki, and The Police should have been in strong enough numbers to maintain Law and Order.
That Opotiki would soon swarm with Gang members was as predictable as night follows day!
The Police ought to have been respectful of well behaved Mongrel Mob members visiting Opotiki, which they have every right to do, yet not allow them to ‘take over control of the town’ and disrupt ordinary folk safely going about their own business, And to make it clear who is in charge.
But this did not happen.
Leading opposition Party, National’s Christopher Luxon has been election campaigning on Labours Law and order catastrophe said ”
“Right now a town in New Zealand has been overtaken by a gang. Schools are closed. Public transport has been cancelled. And Chris Hipkins’ response? It’s not his job to deal with crime,” Luxon tweeted on Tuesday.
“The people in Ōpōtiki are living in fear due to gang tension. They deserve better. They deserve leadership. National will get tough on crime and restore law and order.”
The National Party leader said New Zealand can’t afford three more years of a “soft-on-crime” Labour Government.
According to Te Pati Maori (Maori Party) MP Rawiri Waititi both gangs involved in this murder are Te Whakatohea ‘whanau’, and incidentally Waititi himself belongs to this tribe, and therefore considers himself the only MP in parliament ‘worthy’ to discuss these matters.
I, TWikiriwhi, first became aware of the unfolding chaos in Opotiki from a Twitter post that included a TV1 News report. A comment was made that the display of weakness on the part of the Police… just makes the Gangs bolder and stronger…
*This is an absolutely essential dynamic to appreciate* and demonstrates why Ardern’s soft on crime approach has led to a break down in Law and order in New Zealand under her piss weak woke philosophy of ‘kindness’.
The Law will only be respected by the Lawless, when it is backed up with sufficient force to ensure compliance. Janis-like Ardern had no qualms about bringing in the Brute squad when Peaceful protesters were protesting against her tyrannical Covid 19 dictates and woke agenda!
The contrast is stark See here. Its obvious who the Labour government considers ‘dangerous’… ie their Non-woke politically conservative critics who reject woke tyranny. No Hugs for them! They get the Jackboots!
This is basic stuff, yet Woke ideologues in power today have abandoned the fundamentals in favour of their own political delusions.
Their duplicity ought to be obvious to all.
That Law and order must be upheld and enforced is as true today as it was way back in the 1800s, when New Zealand first took root as a British colony.
More on this soon…
This is when I decided to add my 5 cents worth to the public discourse.
I have a soft spot for Opotiki.
I like Opotiki, love that part of the Bay of Plenty and have spent many summer weekends down that way, and enjoy riding my own motorcycle through those parts.
I am also passionate about the study of New Zealand history in which some very significant events took place in Opotiki and surrounding regions in the mid 1860s.
Having laid down the preceding perspectives, my readers can understand the context in which I entered this discussion… with the following comment…
“If only Kiwis knew their history.
Trouble is not new to Opotiki. In the 1860s Maori Rebel ‘gangs’ the Hau hau murdered a peaceful Missionary there named Volkner. The Colonials gov sent Warships and fought many battles to bring the Murderers to justice. The Law must be upheld.”
This comment solicited an interesting historical discussion about the events surrounding the Murder of Christian Missionary Carl Volkner which led onto claims of injustice on the part of the Colonial Gov in their response to Volker’s horrendous murder upon the Te Whakatohea Iwi, Land confiscations, and supposed unjust trials and hangings.
The claim was “The people of Te Whakatohea were innocent…”
I will discuss this divergence of the topic in part 2 of my blog commentary.
Presently I’ll stick with my original intent.
The main point of my Twitter comment was to contrast the resolve of the 1860s Colonial government to expedite Justice for Volkner, and put down lawlessness that was spreading about the Opotiki region back then, with our current governments dismal display of incompetence and weakness in Opotiki today with this gang murder, esp the breakdown in ordinary life for the citizens of Opotiki hiding in their homes in fear of Gang outlawry that threatens to escalate into more violence and possible revenge killings.
This ain’t no Sunday picnic!
The Police had better get control of the situation before more people get shot!
The response to Volkners murder by the Colonial government which included Pro-government contingents of ‘Kaupapa’ Maori needs to be understood in context of the period of Colonial history in which there were many challenges to the Sovereignty of Queen Victoria by Rebel tribes, at which time the success of the colony hung in the balance.
Even more than this it needs to be understood that The Colonial Government was only now…. 25 years after the signing of the Treaty beginning to properly enforce British Rule, Law and order over the entire country.
Prior to this the Government was not strong enough to police the whole country, to the effect that outside the centers of colonial activity (like Russel, Auckland and Wellington) there were large tracts of Land in which British law was not enforced and in which Tribal chiefs continued to be a law unto themselves just as they had prior to the treaty.
Heke’s rebellion in the North was swiftly put down and order restored with the help of Friendly Ngapuhi Chiefs such as the Famous Waka Nene, yet the reality is in the period between 1840 and 1860 Crimes/ violations of British Law were being committed by Rouge Maori who were not at all afraid to defy British Law as they had learned that the Colonial Government was weak… and would not visit Utu upon them should they slaughter Pakeha.
The most infamous example of this being Te Raupraha’a slaughter of 18 Pakeha in what is know as ‘The Wairau Incident’.
In a display of Weakness Governor FitzRoy failed to bring anyone to justices for these cold calculated murders, signaling to these Warlike Chiefs that according to the rules of Utu… Pakeha were of no consequence, and could be murdered with impunity.
It was this show of weakness that would encourage ongoing acts of defiance, that would eventually lead to the wars of Rebellion in the 1860s.
Note: Gangs understand and operate on this principle of UTU. If a rival Gang takes out one of your guys, by the rule of Utu there must be pay back.
Weakness, and retreat on the part of government will breed greater contempt for the Law and be exploited to its fullest.
Yet In a modern Civil society UTU for Murder is delegated to the State Justice system. The State ought to recompense the guilty.
This breaks the Old-world cycle of UTU.
It is the Duty of the New Zealand Police and justice system to see to it the Killer(s) of New Zealand citizen Stephen Rota Taiatini are brought to Justice.
Though Taiatini was a Gang member. He is still a New Zealand citizen with full rights, and our government is duty bound to solve his murder.
It was the realisation that for the colony to succeed that this situation had to change, and that rebellious chiefs had to be made to understand that British sovereignty and Law would be upheld across the whole nation, and that there was no forest beyond reach of Government forces, to which they could escape, that signaled the end of Lawlessness in New Zealand.
Cannibal Hau Hau ‘Prophet’ Kereopa Te Rau. Also known as… ‘Kaiwhatu’ The Eye Eater. The Murderer of Missionary Carl Volkner.
When these matters are understood the development of the Colony, and New Zealand as a Nation makes perfect sense, and these events can be understood as the birth pangs of shifting from a Land of Tribal anarchy to that of a unified peaceful and prosperous nation… from which Everyone has benefitted, including Maori.
Nobody but Criminals prosper when there is a break down in civil order.
In preparation for part 2 of this commentary, I want to finish here on a comment I made during the twitter discourse with a Wahine who was making a case that Te Whakatohea had suffered injustices.
“I’ve only one interest. The preservation of Truth. I’d be happy to dialogue with you about these events as long as you realise in the process I harbour no malice towards anyone in arguing the case for the contemporary historic records. It can be difficult to discuss such things”
So it is that I will dig deeper into the claims she has made about what happened in the Bay of Plenty that was triggered by the Martyrdom of Carl Volkner, yet I must reiterate the motives of my heart in so doing. I harbour no evil intents towards Te Wharatohea. I wish for their prosperity and blessing.
Yet if we are to discuss the history of these events, and truth and understanding are the goals, then it will only be possible if the truth is spoken with forthright confidence without fear that it might cause offence.
No malice intended.
Because of the subject matter, and because of the heavy Politicization of Treaty claims, and other highly controversial aspects it is inevitable that some of the things I will say will not be pleasant to swallow.
This being so… It’s highly likely that despite my honorable intentions, after I have posted the second part, any further conversation could descend into animosity and the taking of offence.
Will I suffer slander as to my character for daring to state things in a way that undermines much of what is being claimed today, by vested interests as to what really happened?
We shall see.
Perhaps the dialogue will remain relatively calm and learning will achieved on both sides.
That is my sincere hope.
I maintain an open ear.
Only evil prospers when lies prevail.
Sometimes it takes bravery to speak the truth.
I love Opotiki.
I harbour no ill will over the History of our Nation.
Yet today our Nation suffers Deep politically manufactured Racial divide.
Upon understanding the truth the future peace of our nation depends.
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.
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.
I will be doing my part in supporting Carl Bromley’s campaign for Christchurch Mayor.
It is unfortunate that his electorate is so distant from where I live that severely limits what assistance I can be.
The one thing I can do is share his press releases etc here on Eternal Vigilance blog, and on Gab and Mewe Social media sites… and encourage others to do the same.
I will encourage any of my readers living in the Christchurch region to make contact with Carl and to get out there on the streets and support him.
Carl Bromley stands in stark contrast to the fashionable woke madness that is sweeping the globe and corroding the very foundations of our societies.
And he does so without guile.
Anyone who is unfamiliar with my personal Political leanings, let me state that I myself am a Christian, and a Libertarian, and a Maori who does not support the politics of Treaty separatism.
I believe it is important for Maori who do not support the hateful woke radical far left to stand up behind good and honest candidates like Carl who have the integrity and courage to vocally challenge the systemic racism and power grabs that are raging under the current Far Left Ardern regime.
I defend Carl’s assertions about the injustice and divisiveness of the Separatist agenda and call the people of Christchurch to shrug off the bogus woke guilt trip that Maori are an oppressed victim-population… that Non-Maori are Usurpers… and to boldly rally behind Carl’s call for an end to racist politics. I believe Carl’s policy is not only righteous, but in the best interest of the nation… including the Maori people.
Remember Martin Luther Kings dream? It is as applicable here in New Zealand as it was when he said it. The irony is that now it is the Pakeha who are being unjustly judged by the colour of their skin. For all their wild claims of inclusivity it is the Woke far left who exhibit extreme exclusivity, division, and venom.
I have written on this subject many times, and I have even stood for Council myself in Hamilton, and so I know from first hand experience the road that Carl is walking.
And hopefully enough Christchurch voters are not so stupefied by Woke lunacy and appreciate that a vote for Carl is a vote for all that has been good about our country… and made New Zealand the envy of the world… All the things that the Far Left despise… Our values… our openness… our Freedoms… our prosperity… Our independence… Our unity.
I will post some links below.
I have also blogged on Carl’s ‘run ins’ with the Ardern regime because of a refusal to bend the knee… the very real oppression he has suffered because of his insistence to remain free.
Among other things, as a Pastor and Church leader Carl refused to allow the Ardern regime to prohibit his congregation from worship during the ‘Fake Covid pandemic’… by fake I do not mean Covid 19 not a real disease, but that it was never the ‘existential threat’ the ‘Schwab-ite treasonous Far left Leaders about the globe pretended it to be for the sake of bankrupting Western civilisation via extreme lockdowns and by subjugating whole populations to home-detention unless they submitted to receiving a ‘Global Vaccine passport’.
Anyone who still believes the lies of their Far left government henchmen must have rocks for brains as now even Bill Gates admits Covid 19 was no where near the world ending pathogen they had insisted it was and which was the justification for the lockdowns and the attempted mandatory inoculation of the entire population of humanity!
Bill Gates recent confession proves people like Carl were 100% right, and the Governments like the Ardern regime… absolutely wrong… and found to be peddling a globalist scam rather than acting in the best interest of New Zealanders.
How much of Carl’s bid for Office will focus on how our Government behaved during the past two years I do not know. I know he certainly has other matters on his radar, such as his opposition to the governments ‘Three Waters’ Asset grab, and it’s related ‘He Pua Pua’ agenda which is blatant racism and yet another attempt to sell out New Zealand to the UN Globalist agenda.
These are serious matters that have bearing on how local councils will function in the future.
While it is possible that as Carl’s campaign progresses Carl may release some policies with which I will not agree, my endorsement for Carl will not be easily shaken given his conduct in recent years has given me insights into the kind of man Carl Bromley is… he is a man after my own heart… a man who exemplifies the traditional spirit and values of our once great nation.
Carl want’s future generations to enjoy the same liberty and quality of life as we enjoyed as children.
Carl is a man of good will to all despite what any Radical Far left haters might say… simply because he opposes their blatant prejudices and oppressive ambitions.
Carl has stepped up!
Carl has given freedom lovers someone to vote for!
It’s now up to every individual to be equally committed to carrying him into office.
As Lee Williams says in his video above, Carl is starting off as a rank outsider and has his work cut out.
It is an uphill battle because we can be sure he wont get fair play from Christchurch’s media when it comes to informing the voters about where the various candidates stand on the hot topics… Media are notorious for supporting the status quo and in this regard they fail in their moral duty to maintain a level playing field. This makes it all the more imperative that those of you who are awake to the dire need to get people like Carl elected that you dig deep and seriously commit to getting the word out to the people of Christchurch… by sharing Carl’s campaign flyers… helping pay for his press releases to be published in local newspapers… help him to pay for Election posters, and even door knocking.
It is possible for a small group of committed supporters to carry Carl into registering 5%-10% on Polls and then the mainstream will pay him more attention and he will start to get better press… and yet it will be up to his supporters to put him on the map as a real contender.
He cannot do this on his own.
And should he start to gain traction, that is when it is possible some Citizens of means may pour in much needed campaign funds for him to drive his Run all the way home!
This is doable!
It just takes dedication and hard work… from everyone.
I have told Carl I am here for him to discuss issues and policies, and bounce ideas off, yet he has not as of yet taken me up on this offer.
My experience with local body politics and elections, and insights in how to avoid embarrassing inconsistencies is at his disposal.
Maybe my Libertarianism is a bit rich for his tastes… I can understand that.
Yet the offer stands.
I have no doubt that Carl and I will have differences of opinions on many matters and policies, and yet at the vital core of fundamental values and ideals we are in accord.
And it is for this reason I believe Carl is fit for Council… a man of good will and integrity… and thus without reservation I endorse his candidacy and encourage the people of Christchurch to support him in his bid for Mayor.
I am still pondering whether I shall run again for Hamilton City Council myself.
P.S Yesterday I attended a sausage sizzle… ‘The Common sense BBQ’ put on by Hamilton Deputy Mayor Geoff Taylor on the Pukete-Flagstaff foot bridge.
He will be running for Hamilton Mayor.
Like Carl Bromley, Geoff also sees the ‘Three Waters’ Ardern Agenda as an outrageously undemocratic Asset grab.
He is also running a petition for a public referenda on the Current drive to rename Hamilton places and Streets in an attempt to blot out our Colonial heritage, and also on the anti-democratic separatist scheme of ‘Co-governance’… which is nothing less than racist socialist apartheid.
He seeks to curb spending, and free up land for housing to reduce the current madness of ‘intensification’ by which we can see the New Zealand quality of life evaporating before our very eyes.
Geoff seeks to facilitate privately inspired development of Hamilton rather than ‘fund it’ via rates.
On the strength of these important policies I will be encouraging Hamiltonians to vote for Geoff Taylor.
This Blogpost had only been up on social media 1/2 an hour when a feeble minded turnip remarked… “There’s no way he’ll win so all he’s doing is splitting the vote helping the opposition…”
This is the sort of defeatist slave mentality that perpetuates the Rot!
I apologise for my derogatory tone… the proposition is worth discussion as it is a point of view that many people have been duped into believing.
Unless we can snap people out of this pessimism there is little point in having elections…. for the powers that be… will remain entrenched.
Satan laughing spreads his wings!
My Reply…. ” …Splitting the vote between who?
Is there a Candidate more worthy of your vote than Carl?
Then give them your vote! But if there is no candidate who better represents your personal views than Carl… then you will be wasting your vote if you do not give it to him!
That is how democracy is supposed to function… not how you foolishly suggest… ie like betting on the races!
You would vote for someone who does not represent your values simply because in your mind they have more hope of winning?
That is like scoring an own goal!
Carl will not win… if people who know he is right… still don’t support him…”
As I said in my post … It is an uphill climb yet if those who care get behind Carl and the people of Christchurch get to hear and appreciate what Carl represents… he can win.
In fact by standing up for what is right, and giving likeminded Enlightened people a worthy candidate upon which to cast their vote… Carl is already winning on the moral front.
Democracy is supposed to contrast itself to Monarchy and Elitist Oligarchy. It is supposed to be classless and give the working man an equal opportunity to participate in parliament, or Council. It is only the folly of the working Class that they so often vote for Fat Cats, and Tyrants, and neglect the Hard working Family men and Champions of Common sense… like Carl.
And you wonder why Parliaments and Councils fill to the brim with University graduate radicals and Plutocrats???
We need to break this hypnotic stupor.
Today, all being well, Transmission Gully opens to traffic. I look forward to driving along it for the first time this weekend.
I thought it opened yesterday, when I read the headlines on Google News. But then I remembered that we live in the post-truth era. “Officially opened” just means opened to government officials, in particular, opened to the current Prime Minister and her cronies. Plebs like us have to wait until the very early hours of this morning.
The official name of the new road is Te Ara Nui o Te Rangihaeata. Te Rangihaeata was a Ngāti Toa chief and nephew of the Ngāti Toa warlord Te Rauparaha. In August 1846 he led the Ngāti Toa forces at the battle of Battle Hill, which overlooks the new road roughly halfway between Paekakariki and Pauatahanui. Te Rangihaeata is also famous for having been a signatory to the Treaty of Waitangi in June 1840, and for his involvement with his uncle Te Rauparaha in the Wairau Affray in June 1843. During the latter confrontation, which was the first major skirmish of the Land Wars, a stray bullet killed Te Rangihaeata’s wife, Te Rongo. In an act of vengeance, Te Rangihaeata bludgeoned to death the nine special constables of the New Zealand Company who had been taken prisoner. Later, the newly appointed second Governor of New Zealand, Robert Fitzroy (former captain of the HMS Beagle), investigated the incident and exonerated Te Rangihaeata and Te Rauparaha, on the grounds that the New Zealand Company had attempted an illegal land grab.
These days New Zealand is a less bloody interesting place, but still a place blighted by corporate grift, government graft and endemic low-level corruption. Here’s a timeline of the Transmission Gully project’s 103-year history. Have a read of the history of the project, especially since construction commenced in 2014, paying particular attention to the steady stream of delays, build errors, cost overruns, and silt running into the harbour. I think it’s hardly plausible to deny that some of those involved are on the make.
Someone once said, never ascribe to malice that which is adequately explained by incompetence. But why not both?
This Blogpost is a shout out to Lee Williams, asking him to contact me so that I can do what I can to help him in the current crisis he is going through as a direct result of Maori Party activists attacking his job at Synlait Dairy Company.
I only know Lee from watching his You Tube videos, and from Social Media, yet by the very nature of ‘You Tube’, the life of a Youtuber becomes a public spectacle and from watching this dramatic saga unfold on you tube and in mainstream media reports, I am becoming concerned about how well Lee is holding up under this crushing pressure that all this is having on his life.
Lee has been suspended from his job as a direct result of Maori Party Activists slandering to his employers as being a White Supremacist.
I have herd that Lee’s marriage is on the rocks.
Go Fund Me… wrongfully/ unjustly took $7000 dollars which his friends and supporters had donated to him to help him through this time of trouble, and maybe get him a ticket to go visit his Dad in Britain, and we can be sure this happened as a result of more nasty Machiavellian Political foul play by Maori party activists.
Now that all these thunderbolts have hit Lee all at once it is little wonder that watching Lees latest videos we see a man in crisis.
The last thing I want to do now is lay another trip on him , yet the last two videos I watched make me fearful, I see a man spiraling downward… a man who needs help/ support… esp from friends… and yet it appears the Maori Party have relentlessly continued to persecute Lee so that now there are some sort of ‘Police matter’ unfolding… yet I am in the dark about this.
It takes a deep seated malevolence and an absolute absence of scruple to stoop to this level of personal attack, esp because to destroy a man’s livelihood does not only affect him, but innocent parties like their children also suffer when Dad looses his job.
History declares Socialist Marxist willingness to practice unconscionable deeds for their own ends.
And when you consider all the dire Social statistics of the Maori Demographic, what hope is there when this is the caliber of their leadership?
What sort of Character and Mentorship do these Radical Racists provide to Maori Youth?
They are a far cry from the likes of Sir Aparana Ngata, or Martin Luther King, Booker T Washington, or even the Elder Statesman Nelson Mandela!
Back to the focus of this post… it looks as if things continue to get worse for Lee, and I am worried about him.
Having been through a personal crisis myself years ago, I know how hard it can be to walk a wise path when you are in complete turmoil.
I fear if Lee does not manage to pull himself out of this ‘nosedive’ he is heading for disaster.
Lee needs to know that there are people here in New Zealand who understand what he is going through, that we believe in his cause, and we know what he is going through is because of the Evils of those who have attacked him because he speaks out against their evil racist schemes.
New Zealanders should be outraged at what Maori Party MP Debbie Ngarewa-Packer and her Radical Activist friends have done to Lee!
It is disgusting, and there must be some sort of legal redress sought.
Lee needs a group of supporters to help carry some of his burdens during this time of crisis.
Message To Lee.
Lee, You are a fighter, and I hope you know you have support of people like myself, because we understand what you are going through, We know your life is in turmoil, and we know you are the target of a vicious smear campaign from the real racists… the Maori Party.
Yet We … your supporters need you to follow some advice… you need to calm the fuck down a few notches.
I know your life is up shit creek… and I’m not surprised this is taking it’s toll on you.
It is Disturbing to watch how you are handling this… I can see you are in Crisis mode.
I know you are battling for your own survival, yet if you cant maintain your composure on Youtube, you harm your own cause… this works in favour of your enemies.
It’s no shame to know when you need time out to get your shit together.
Please take a break off you tube until you have ‘collected yourself’ together… no shame in that.
Instead start to work with some of your close supporters to help you work through this business and stay in touch with your support base…. one step at a time.
Your ‘Fonza’ crew should be able to help you Youtube with a bit more composure.
Believe me when I say I mean you no offence.
I know you want to wake up the apathetic voters to what these evil racists are doing… yet you are heading for a break down if you carry on like this.
I don’t want to see that.
My advice is for your own good, and for the cause that we both care so much about… Ending Racist Government, One Law for All, Equality, and most importantly… fighting this fight peacefully, and with dignity…
Give me a call 0276630331.
I am willing to help you in any way I can.
I want you to beat this nasty crap… yet to do this you must not allow your pain to cloud your better judgement.
The righteous path is yours!
A friend of Lee has reported that Lee is doing ok, and that he has received some donations from supporters directly into his account.
Also the last video Lee produced was positive in seeing that he has regained his composure.
Nice one Lee.
This meme above is a perfect example of how the Left purposely conflate dissent against their policies and activism as being ‘Racist’.
Morons will read this Meme (above) and believe anyone who disagrees with that shirt is a racist white supremacist rather than a what they really are ….Freedom and Justice lovin Anti-communists… not racists… not White supremacists at all. That is a Slanderous lie. A Delusion. Yet it works so well on the brain dead Leftist zombies and the Fake News Mainstream Media.
With regard to the up and coming referendum on the right to assisted death for the terminally ill, and to politics in general, a fundamental question asked by Libertarians is Who owns your life?
Answer: You do! Not society.
Upon that basis I believe a Yes vote for the right to assisted dying for the terminally ill is the moral vote because it is the only consistent position with the principle that (politically speaking) *you own yourself*.
Otherwise you become the slave/ property of society.
The above statement is clear cut, yet not without controversy.
The ‘No’ voters think this reform erodes the sanctity of Human life. So argues the New Conservative party.
I say it does the very opposite thing.
It removes power from the State and gives it back to individuals to make their own choices.
I myself am both a Libertarian, and a Christian, yet many Christians will not be able to reconcile my ‘Yes vote’ with how they interpret ‘Christian values’, and in fact many people… both believers and infidels can’t imagine how Christianity and Libertarianism can be coherently united and consistent in application.
More on these nuances later, first of all I want to talk about the curious mental gymnastics I am forced to engage in this election whereby my votes on both referendums will be in conflict with the expressed policies of the political party I have decided to support. New Conservatives.
I forgive people for this default starting assumption.
Hopefully those of you who find my decisions incredulous will take the trouble to read this post whereby I will do my best to extricate myself from being written off as a nutbar.
I know that my choices will win few friends, and will more likely annoy any I already have because splitting my votes will tend to draw the ire and consternation of *all camps*.
Nonetheless this is the course I am choosing to navigate.
We here in New Zealand live in chaotic times politically speaking, and the two referenda being run in unison with the national elections are two highly polarising subjects… which is why they have become referenda as neither of the two large parties have the Nads to legislate these reforms, or run with them as election policies.
The assisted dying referendum for the terminally ill has come about because of a bill presented to parliament by Act Leader David Seymour.
I will be supporting Seymour’s reform, yet I won’t be giving Act my party vote.
Even though Act have never been a great party, deciding not to vote Act this election was not an easy decision to make, as what other party even remotely represents my essential values?
On several key matters of personal freedom David Seymour had stood head and shoulders above the rest of parliament in how he conducted himself this election cycle, with respect to the issues of free Speech, and his opposition to the shameful way the new Firearms prohibitions were enacted.
In the light of these noble actions I was definitely leaning towards giving Act my vote and encouraging others to do the same, yet as time progressed, Seymour’s virtues became overshadowed by other unconscionable actions he would proceed to commit which have undermined my support.
With regards to the new abortion Legislation he not only supported late term abortions but also failed to vote for a proposed amendment that would have defended the rights of babies born alive after botched Abortions to receive medical aid rather than being neglected to die.
The whole basis of the pro-abortion arguments are that a woman is sovereign over her own body and the government has no authority to dictate what she does within her own body… yet once a baby has in fact been born… is *outside* the woman’s body, then they ought to have the full rights of an independent human being!
I consider these failings by David Seymour to be morally reprehensible.
And how disgusting that such laws were passed under a parliament led by a Woke PM who claims she entered politics ‘For the Children’!!!!
Seymour is fully complicit in this foul business.
I was also disgusted with the way he treated some of his most loyal candidates with regards to this elections Act party list, and I have always disliked what I see as a general lack of spine on some of the most important social issues facing our Nation such as ending the Race based seats in parliament, and his support for the UN Global compact on migration.
These are not attributes of a leader I can endorse.
In the not too distant past voting for me was a far less convoluted enterprise.
During the first decade of this new Millennium voting was relatively easy because New Zealand had a vibrant Libertarian Party for whom I could cast my vote with confidence, and for many elections in the second decade, I stood as a Libertarian Independent, and so obviously I at least knew which candidate I would support.. yet the question of where to place my party vote has never been an easy decision since the Libertarianz Party disbanded.
It is a matter of political folklore that the Act Party are a ‘Libertarian party’, yet this is to the largest extent a myth.
A myth that is mostly to the detriment of Libertarianism.
Politics in New Zealand truly is a confounding mess and almost madness to try and untangle… which causes many not to bother trying.
Act may have been founded with the aid of some Libertarian minded people, yet there were also many Ex Labour Party Neo-liberal Bigwigs like Roger Douglas and Richard Prebble, and so instead of advocating any Libertarian social reforms, Act quickly became a Crony Capitalist/’National Socialist party’ that supported some Free market Economics, yet maintained Welfare State socialism with regards to virtually everything else.
Take a look at the picture (above) that exposes how far the National party have drifted from their original charter!
If only they had remained true to their original aspirations upon which they were founded!
Act became the most Right Wing party of New Zealand.. to the right of National.. a lobby to bludgeon Left wing heavy Taxation Anti-Business ambitions of Labor and their more radical minions yet despite lofty rhetoric Act absolutely failed to stand for any reforms on individual liberty.
This has remained the case throughout their history perhaps with the one exception during the party leadership by the Great New Zealander Don Brash.
It was under Brash that Act came anywhere near a forthright stand on any law reform that was a matter of personal freedom, when Brash came out on TV in favour of ending cannabis prohibition.
His party associates like John Banks nearly had a heart attack!
Brash stint with Act was short, and any mention of Cannabis law reform left when he did.
Act has always and only played lip service to being the party of small government and personal freedom.
This is because apart from Brash the Party has been run by a bunch of Ball-less wonders.
The most disappointing for me was Jamie Whyte… because of all of them he knew better.
Most of them put money matters above personal liberty and social justice.
Act are not Nazis, yet their party is part way down a continuum at the end of which is full blown fascism.
Labour are not Communists, yet their party is well down the continuum at the end of which stands full blown Communism. Today under Ardern their policies and loyalties lie not with the interests of New Zealanders but with UN Socialist Globalism.
By labeling Act as ‘Libertarian’ the leftist media managed to confound Libertarianism with being Far right.
This is disgraceful slander.
Libertarianism is fundamentally different to every other political ideology.
Act’s alignment with *Fascism* rather than true capitalism and Freedom, is why the True Libertarians who initially helped found Act, quickly realised what was afoot and jumped ship.
They formed their own genuine Libertarian party, and so Act became just another Party against whom the Libertarianz party had to cross swords.
For more than a decade the Libertarianz Party fought valiantly for Individual liberty and rights against ever expanding Government encroachment, yet sadly after years of courageous activism they were forced to throw in the towel from lack of traction and financial support.
MMp’s 5% mark to get an MP into parliament is in my opinion far too high, and represents a barrier to breaking the stranglehold the two major parties enjoy.
The Political playing field is also heavily tilted in favour of maintaining the status quo, and New Zealanders themselves are heavily conditioned to their chains.
The Libertarianz party could not sustain itself against the overwhelming odds.
Freedom lovers failed to rally under their noble banner from a delusion of ‘wasting their votes’.
Well… I ask… where did casting your votes for other parties get our Nation?
Because New Zealanders did not heed the Libertarians on their Soap boxes, and rally behind them is why our nation now experiences the dawning of an era of Tyranny!
I implore Freedom lovers to not make the same mistake!
Stop voting for the very parties that have abandoned our values and taken our nation towards complete enslavement!
The demise of the Libertarianz Party spelled the end of New Zealanders clear choice between Freedom and various levels of Tyranny.
Between Justice and various levels of oppression.
Between fairness in economics vs heavy Political obstacles.
Libertarian minded New Zealanders were cast adrift… forced to swim about in a stinking cesspool, looking for the best place to put their democratic votes.
The political climate and darkened mentality of our times have made this a very dirty business.
Most of the wares on offer by todays mongers are of dubious quality.
The Libertarian pines over his ale, looking out upon a scene of chaos, confusion, and mayhem.
Is there any hope to be found?
The question of which political parties (if any) should the Libertarian now give their vote is a highly troublesome dilemma, as at a glance there appear only shades of grey tending towards complete blackness.
It is very difficult to determine whether *any* of the parties standing ought to be supported.
The closest way to describe what voting now entails for a Kiwi Libertarian is to liken the decision making process to solving a bunch of ‘Trolley Problems’ that will be familiar to those who have to some degree studied moral philosophy.
‘The trolley problems’ are designed to highlight the many complexities involved in dealing with moral dilemmas in which *means and ends* are far from ideal.
Solution tends towards making pragmatic determinations hoping for the best outcomes attainable via the least repugnant means… for the overall sake of committing the lesser Evil.
The trouble is the lesser evil is still evil.
Wikipedia discussion on Trolley problems can be found here
There is no space here or sense in attempting to fully articulate the conundrums involved. It must suffice to say this is an abhorrent ‘game’ for any Idealist to be forced to play, and being independent thinkers, the once united Libertarians have now fragmented… going their own ways… as each individual makes their own determinations as to how to solve the set of trolley problems presented to them at election time. This election is particularly significant as we also must vote on the two referenda.
In truth the most moral of men and woman, and the greatest leaders of history have had to face frightful moral dilemmas, and most of them have had to carry the weight of harsh criticism for the decisions they made from lesser mortals who would have been stupefied and paralyzed had they themselves been faced with the same crisis.
To shrink from tuff calls is symptomatic of Moral weakness.
One day we all will stand before our Maker and give account of ourselves, and it is He who shall determine the virtue of those who made tuff calls.
Two examples might be the decision to use the Atom bomb on Japan in 1945, another might be Churchill’s decision to ally with Stalin for the sake of defeating Hitler.
Both of these involve weighty moral dilemmas that provoke strong criticism to this day.
Given today’s circumstances I know a few Ex Libertarianz party members who today throw up their hands in disgust… and refuse to vote… the irony is that not voting… *is their vote*… to do nothing.
In the perspective of the Trolley problems not voting is the equivalent of never choosing to throw the lever… not intervening at all to try and mitigate any crisis that is unfolding, and allowing things to take their course… no matter how horrendous the result of their inaction might be, or how things could have turned out had they been brave enough to reach for the switch.
Most of us have heard the saying “Evil prevails when good men do nothing”.
For me *to automatically* determine to ‘do nothing’ is no escape from moral culpability in what ensues, it is in fact an abdication of moral duty… a most heinous moral failing… maybe the worst of them all!
Bible Theologians would call this ‘The sin of Omission’… and one example of this in the Bible is told by Jesus when asked about the moral duty to ‘love thy neighbour as thyself’.
He spoke of the predicament of the man who was beaten and robbed, yet the ‘Religious Jew’ walked past him without giving him any aid. It was only when the Good Samaritan came along that the man received care.
By doing nothing The Religious Jew was deemed to be wicked, and so *automatic inaction* cannot be the moral position…if there exists at all any plausible means of steering things towards a more desirable outcome without committing unconscionable evils in the process. ‘Not Voting’ cannot absolve a person from the resulting evils his inaction inevitably entails.
It’s like walking past our sick and dying country on the other side of the road as if it’s not your problem, rather than inconveniencing yourself and getting your hands dirty.
The reality is that though no registered political Party standing in October 17 is fundamentally a Libertarian party, there is still a broad range of parties standing and the fact is it still makes a massive difference which ones manage to get their hands on the levers of Power.
Lives are at stake!
Freedom is at stake!
Quality of life is at stake!
Our Children’s futures are at stake!
New Conservative candidate for Hamilton West Rudy du Plooy.
When I survey the Political landscape, despite the absence of a Libertarian party, judged by their policies and election campaigns certain parties do stand out as vastly superior to either National or Labour.
Some are worse, such as the Greens, and The Maori Party.
Some are no better such as NZ First, Top.
Many ex Libertarianz will be voting for Act, yet personally speaking of the two parties that most clearly articulate principles, and values that I considered honorable, it is the New Conservatives who come out on top.
Their forthright defense of Free speech.
Their rejection of 1080.
Repeal all the new and hastily enacted Firearms prohibitions created in the wake of the Christchurch terrorist attack.
Their defense of National sovereignty in opposition to UN Globalist slavery.
Their rejection of Ardern’s Covid 19 ‘elimination strategy, Lockdowns, and their absolute rejection of compulsory vaccinations.
No to carbon taxes, first 20k of income tax free.
Their rejection of ‘Transgender indoctrination’ in schools against parents wishes.
Their rejection of the UN Global compact on migration, etc all these clearly stated policies mean New Conservatives trump the Act Party by a country mile, and that is why I will be giving them my party vote, and having had a coffee with their Hamilton West candidate Rudy du Plooy last week I will also be giving him my candidate vote.
It is fitting that here I discuss one of NC’s most important policies, and examples of their party’s integrity and courage and that is their forthright call for the end of Treaty separatism and the race based seats in parliament.
Rudy is an immigrant from South Africa and so he has experienced the evils of Apartheid and appreciates just how violent and unjust Racist politics and bigotry can become.
That is why his party is calling for racial equality before the law.
The Treatment of White South Africans currently going on over there is appalling! Yet not a peep is raised about it by our Woke PM Ardern… because ultimately socialists like her support the oppression of White people.
Many of her own policies are heavily prejudiced against Pakeha New Zealanders, and for all her talk about humanitarian migration, she remains silent in opening New Zealand’s doors to help more oppressed white South Africans… because they are white.
This too despite the fact that White South Africans integrate well into our society as they share common traditional values… yet these are the very values socialists like her are determined to destroy.
Statistically speaking Ardern wants Less white people in New Zealand, and she can turn a blind eye to the fate of white farmers there under the contemptible socialist bromide that they are paying the dues of the white race for the past apartheid regime.
By Socialist math two wrongs do make a right.
Hence Ardern has little conscience about supporting Racist legislations under the pretense of ‘De-colonising’ New Zealand.
In New Plymouth which is a hot bed of Radical Maori separatist activism the NC candidate Murry Chong has heroically weathered a Tempest of outrage for his forthright stand against attempts to further entrench fraudulent Waitangi Apartheid and Treaty partnership doctrines and institutions there. He has suffered the most skewed press that mischaracterised his defense of Racial equality as ‘Opposition to Maori Representation’… which is a complete lie.
What he and his fellow New Conservatives oppose is the ongoing creation of special seats of power whereby Iwi can extort the rest of the people perpetually… as if they have more rights than everyone else.
They seek to rid our nation of such corrupt politics, and when the Maori seats and the rest of the apartheid institutions are abolished, He understands that Maori rights will still be protected by the Law in common with everyone else. Maori will still be able to stand of Parliament and Council, only to do so they will have to campaign before the entire community which will cut off the truly *racist radicals* for ever attaining office because their nasty bigoted views and ambitions will never fly with the whole of the people… and that is how a democracy is supposed to function!
The Racist radicals know that should apartheid politics be brought to an end… so too will their ability to extort unearned and undeserved wealth and privilege be broken.
So many New Zealanders have completely forgotten the most important fundamentals of justice and good government!
The New Conservatives have candidates in every electorate including the Maori seats.
Personally I don’t think it was the right thing to stand in those electorates, yet having said that I appreciate the Nads it takes to do so.
Their candidates in the Maori electorates will face heavy angst from many Maori who have been brainwashed into thinking their party policy to abolish the race based electoral system is a demonstration of anti-Maori bigotry. They will face threats. Yet should they maintain their composure and speak truth with eloquence they will be able to present their case with love.
Truth and principle, and Righteousness are on their side!
You know The New Conservatives are the party that threaten Left wing Radical socialism as no other party is enduring the hate and violence as they are…
I salute all NC candidates for their bravery… The one-eyed mainstream media takes no more pleasure than to pillory the small parties and their candidates who bravely challenge the ‘norms’ of the status quo.
Act’s David Seymour in private professes that the race based system is corrupt and ruining our country yet does not have the balls to say so in public at election time.
That is cowardly. That is unprincipled scheming, and demonstrates the sort of Game playing politician he really is.
How is he any different for the scoundrel Winston Peters who betrayed his supporters last election with regards to making the abolishment of the race-based seats a bottom line for coalition talks?
Sadly… when you dig deep down… despite many good things David has done… he and Winston are not as different as he likes to think.
He too is a game player.
The Leftist radicals of Labour, the Greens, and the Maori Party demonstrate their absolute disregard for fair elections in that they have implemented a strategy of destroying New Conservative election bill boards all about the country… despite their own parties getting far more Taxpayer loot to fund their own campaigns!
Like I said earlier about the struggles of the Libertarianz Party before them… New Zealand elections are far from fair… far for being fought on a level playing field, and so The New Conservatives face an uphill battle against dirty political tactics at every step.
I urge every New Zealander who is alarmed at our headlong plunge into tyranny under Jacinda Ardern to get behind the brave and principled New Conservative party!
If 5% of us do… they will be in parliament and possibly even be included in a coalition government, most likely with National and Act.
This would position them well to lever National into making concessions in alignment with our Values and principles… away from the direction Ardern has carried us.
These are good people who hold to the traditional values that made New Zealand a great and prosperous place to live.
They care about all New Zealanders.
I attended a public meeting a few months back in Te Awamutu where I heard several candidates speak, including the party’s passionate and compassionate deputy, Elliot Ikilei.
He spoke very well, and I was particularly impressed with his insights into the many social conditions that are common for troubled youth that play a large role in such important issues in Maori criminality.
He articulated that from his experience working in this field that all the separatist rhetoric about Maori crime statistics as being evidence of systemic oppression of Maori from colonisation are absolutely false!
Instead he argued that the main driver of Maori criminality was broken homes and a lack of a Father in the house, and thus all the ‘positive discrimination’ going on in the name of ‘closing the gaps’ between Maori and the rest of the country absolutely miss the fundamental issues.
He described how the institution of the Domestic Purposes benefit *was devastating for Maori* because that was corrosive to maintaining families, promoted single parent-ism, and it’s institution correlates perfectly with the exponential growth of Maori dependence on welfare and Broken homes.
Thus Elliot understands that socialism is a dangerous trap!
I myself also know Maori must take ownership of their own violence and substance abuse… these are not evils that can be justly blamed on their Pakeha neighbours but represent the ugly truth of a serious lack of wholesome values that are requisite in having happy homes and personal prosperity in a free and modern society.
Maori need to cut with the shameful blame, and take more ownership of their own mess!
I like the New Conservative party very much.
They have their hearts in the right place.
They offer real and much needed alternatives.
None of them appear to me to be in politics for powers sake, yet they are not perfect.
They have many policies and values I myself hold dear, yet I know they are not a consistent Libertarian party.
They are Democrats… with all the weakness that entails.’
This being so I see great opportunity for improvement, and given the chance I would like to engage in healthy dialogue to see if they are open to reasonable challenge on some of their policies which I do not endorse.
I have already mentioned that I will be voting yes for the right to assisted dying.
This is at variance with the New Conservatives.
Maybe sometime soon I will write a blogpost explaining in more detail why I believe they are wrong to oppose this legal reform, yet because this current post is already insanely long, I want to finish by discussing the New Conservative policy of Citizens Binding Referenda and my intention to vote ‘yes’ for Cannabis law reform in the forthcoming referenda which is again against the expressed policy of the New Conservatives.
At the Te Awamutu meeting my friend and fellow Libertarian Robin Thomsen and I introduced ourselves to Elliot and engaged in a short conversation.
Elliot was happy to talk and spoke candidly.
After a few other subjects I broached the topic of the Cannabis Referendum and asked what his party would do should they succeed in getting into parliament, yet also the people of New Zealand vote for Cannabis legalisation?
He said his party would honor that result despite it being contrary to their own policy and hopes.
That answer was consistent with their policy of citizens binding referenda and demonstrates integrity to that political school of thought despite the result going against their own opinions as to what is best for the country.
As far as ending the war on cannabis being ‘bad’ for New Zealand I emphatically reject that position.
This is a topic I have involved myself for many years having experienced first hand the injustice of criminalising cannabis users, and understand the manifold other detrimental effects these bad laws have on our society. I have been an activist for reform for over 30 years, and in fact it was activism to ‘Free the weed’ that was my first foray into politics trying to fix a broke system.
I would jump from hedge to hedge… covertly distributing ‘NORML’ Pamphlets in Tauranga letterboxes in the dead of night.
I knew the difference between dishonesty and violence, from peacefully enjoying a doobie with friends in my own home… I knew I was being oppressed and that the Law needed to be changed.
I will post links to other Blogposts on this subject below.
The point I wish to finish on, and one I hope the New Conservatives are open to reconsider is the weird way in which they promote binding Citizens referenda in the face of knowing it is just as likely for the majority of people to vote for laws they believe to be *Bad* as it is for good… and I am using the Cannabis referenda as an example.
Is it not apparent to them that *Mob Rule* is no guarantee of Good law or justice?
I see their policy on binding referenda as their Achilles heel.
It’s a policy that actually undermines the *Real foundations of Just Law* which are the Objective principles of Justice such as personal sovereignty, and equality before the Law… and that just government has strictly limited authority over the lives of citizens, the impartial enforcement of legally binding contracts, and limited powers over only such matters pertaining to the defense of rights.
The terms and condition upon which Government is founded, and limits of it’s powers ought to be embodied in a constitution with an iron clad bill of rights upon which democratically elected Parliaments have no authority to encroach.
This is a million miles away from having a system of Mob rule… open ended social arbitrary Law whereby the greatest mob get their way.
Under such a system there is no protection for Individuals or minorities, and the Masses are notorious for being easily duped and manipulated by Charismatic demagogues.
I have much to say on these matters, and it would be my pleasure to open a dialogue with the New Conservatives about these vital political truths.
Now remember the moral dilemmas of the Trolley problems and the uncomfortable reality of having to make choices under circumstances less than ideal, via means that are less than ideal, and which also probably will result… no matter what decision is made in ends that are less than ideal?
My decision to vote ‘Yes’ on the Act Party’s Right to assisted death for the terminally ill referendum, and ‘Yes’ on the Green Party’s Cannabis Law reform Referendum, and also ‘yes’ for the New Conservative party this election are each individual decisions I have arrived at as being the most moral, and just choices available to voters this election.
I am being compelled to make compromises, and there is always an element of risk, yet ultimately from my best evaluations all these choices are the most consistent with my Christian Libertarian values and ideals.
Such is the human condition and predicament.
I don’t pretend my choices are not open to critisism… such is the nature of moral dilemma.
I hope this blogpost is instrumental in winning support for the New Conservatives from Liberty lovers, Free thinkers, and all who are concerned about the Free fall of our country into socialist tyranny.
I believe they will reach 5% if enough of us resolve to give them our support.
They deserve it.
Our Country desperately needs to steer a new course to get back to the freedom and Values we enjoyed not too many years ago before the likes of Ardern came to power.
She is turning our Nation into a Police State!
I ask what sort of apology is it when you dont even admit what you did wrong?
It’s not an apology at all but a refusal to apologise.
I think this fact highlights a very important attribute common to Maori Radicals… they live in a state of self denial.
They refuse to see their own wrongs.
They willfully perpetuate a mindset of cognitive dissonance to the facts of reality.
Anyway before I explain how this all underpins the delusions of Activists like Anikaaro Harawira and Pania Newton, let me first state that what follows is not written in the spirit of malice towards them, but in the spirit of exposing the delusions that underpin the whole grievance industry and Maori radicalism.
It is not my intention to ‘get personal’ about these particular individuals… I am hoping hoping to break down false ideas and let the light shine through… so let me state for the record that I dont harbour ill will towards these woman… though they may harbour ill will towards me should they read my opinions… yet ill leave such conjectures to fate.
I do not doubt the sincerity of their beliefs… but I question their validity.
Sincerity does not automatically make false ideas right.
I will also acknowledge the fact that at least Anikaaro admitted she was carried away with the ‘hype of the moment’… and who among us has not in the throws of intense moments said things we later regret?
I would like now to talk about some facts that she reveled about herself….
“In terms of being a racist, I’m of Māori, English and Scottish descent. I also have a Tongan son. “….
And there you have it folks!
This admission carries far more weight than she intends, out of a desire to deny her ingrained racism that she has imbibed from Racist Maori Radical doctrines… for a fleeting moment she drops her Maori Radical persona and admits to… or rather conveniently appeals to the fact that she is a descendant of British colonials herself*!
Think about that for a while with regard to the claims she and her friends are peddling at Ihumatao… she is in fact protesting *against herself!*
She is a Pakeha too!
Like myself Anikaaro is a New Zealander descendant from *both Maori and Pakeha*… from both Native and Colonialist.
This fact betrays something very obvious and important as by her very existence we can deduce that at some point in her Maori lineage her elders forgot about the colonial strife and eventually got on fine enough with Pakeha to actually *intermarry*… and thus she is the fruit of this union…. she is actually representative and physical embodiment of Hobson’s Pledge at Waitangi!
‘He Iwi Tahi Tatau’… we are now *one people*!
Yet sadly we can be assured this admission on her part is not something she is proud of… its actually something she buries so that she can then play at being *an oppressed Maori*, and to do this she must harbour a secret shame at her own lineage on the Paeha side to be able to stand up in public and accuse them of being racist oppressors…whereas I myself am not ashamed of my Pakeha heritage… because I dont buy into that false narrative.
I dont see British colonization as a great evil, and I love *New Zealand* as it is… which is was a beautiful melding of English and Maori cultures… until Maori radicalism came along and began to subvert this harmony and Rob Pakeha of their proud heritage as Pioneers and nation builders, and instead portray Pakeha as racist invaders!
Well Anikaaro… your own Blood betrays your assertions… you are the child of the union and integration between these two historic groups… and your distinctions are from a by gone age that no longer exists now… except in your head.
And you in fact are representative of the voluntary union of Maori and Pakeha!
So this is the fraud that underpins such protests as are happening at Ihumatao, because these people pretend they are a distinct and oppressed minority and the victims of another distinct group ‘of oppressors’ when in reality no such distinctions can be made *because the so called victim belongs to *both groups* making her both victim and oppressor!
Mathematically speaking… They cancel each other out!
Taking this to its ultimate logical conclusion we get to the heart of the matter… and that is these deluded people deny reality and truth… and seek to claim to be something that they are not…. The fact is they are attempting to pretend *they are not Pakeha* themselves… they have successfully fooled themselves and want the country to also buy into their fantasy … that they can with a straight face claim to be ‘Maori victims’…. yet they are not…. Their claim is false… they are not Maori in the sense that Maori were Maori in the 19th century.
This itself evidences the very opposite truth in opposition to the claim of being a member of a segregated and oppressed people… It is in fact a testament to One-ness with pakeha and a success story of mutual integration…. and peaceful coexistence… what was once two separate human families have become One, and so this whole treaty grievance industry is a farce!
Now as I have already said I myself have both Maori and Pakeha blood too, and yet it is important to clearly state that the truth does not prohibit Anikaaro from celebrating her Maori-ness.
I have no problem at all with Maori-Pakiha descendants like her preferring to identify themselves more with their Native heritage… and enjoy that inheritance… and to embrace that cultural heritage… yet that is a completely different kettle of fish to what is going on with treaty separatism!
We need to make an important distinction between the right of people like Anikaaro to freely embrace Maori culture,which is legitimate, from their illegitimate Political ambitions and claims that They are a distinct race of people who should have superior rights!
Treaty separatism is a vile racist scam.
There is no reason why we should not establish One law for all, and have liberty and equality… and for ;Maori to carry on enjoying their own heritage *as equals*…. its just the all the handouts and special treatment will *stop* and Maori like her will have to lose her fake sense of ‘superior entitlement* to live and enjoy this country.
Ending treaty separatism is in fact a moral imperative for our Nation.
Maori like Anikaaro need to snap out of their malevolent racist ideas and must start respecting their Non-Maori neighbours as fellow countrymen of equal status and rights to themselves!
That is what ending racism looks like… yet that is precisely what our government is refusing to do… instead our government *perpetuates separatism and grievance* … ie the government perpetuates *racism* and Apartheid.
Its time New Zealanders kicked these types of politicians out and get some who will end all this racist governance and establish one law for all!
One last point…. maybe Anikaaro will also deny she is ashamed of her Pakeha blood… after all why should *she assume* any perceived ‘collective guilt’ for oppression that she places on her colonizing ancestors account?
After all *she might argue that herself has not acted in an oppressive manor towards Maori!
Yet what would such an argument do but sweep the entire presumption that under pins Maori Radicals demands for compensation from he contemporary Pakeha kin?
For what is true of herself is equally true of all Pakeha living today… non of them has engaged in Colonial oppression any more than she has!
What more No Maori living today has been the victim of colonial oppression… all claims that are being held up and assumed to be colonial injustice all happened generations before they were born!
So just as ‘Collective guilt’ is a scam… so too is their claims of ‘collective victimism’… the noting that simply because they are descended from a certain ethic group… that they can thereby claim their ‘victimhood’.
Its all too shameful and absurd to be countenanced!
How the hell did New Zealanders allow their nation to be hijacked by such twisted logic???
And how long will you allow this lunacy to continue ?
From what have seen in the news it is my opinion that the Organizers of the Race based lobby group’SOUL’ (Save Our Unique Landscape) who have instigated the ongoing protests at the Fletcher Buildings development in Ihumatao are nothing like the characters that they seek to portray themselves to be to the New Zealand public… the ‘Pacifist’ face of a righteous cause protesting a past injustice, but are in fact Dangerous schemers and opportunists harboring complete contempt for the Law.
I want to talk about their Machiavellian scheming and intents… esp the devious means by which they hope to achieve their goals yet first I need to lay out the frame of reference… the stage upon which these ‘Actors’ are plotting.
The Longer this Spectacle continues… the more the evidence mounts that they want to manipulate the situation to their own advantage and create a Riotous revolt for the express purpose of extorting from the government what they want… And Jacinda Ardern is the perfect spineless and unprincipled weakling who will cave in to their extortion and give them what they want… not because they are entitled to anything… but simply to make this mess ‘Go away’.
There is a very real danger of things getting very Ugly.
A strong and principled plan needs to be implemented in dealing with these dangerous radicals.
Like many woman, Ardern has Janus type personalities… she is scary …stone cold ruthless to those whom she despises, yet there is another side to her that is pathetically Feeble… both of Mind and of heart… and that is in dealing with her own ‘Naughty Woke Children’.
Look at her track record!
Its a fact that since Arden has taken power that we have seen Lefty uprisings turning up the heat on their own ‘PM’ because they know she is a soft touch.
I only need to refer you to how State workers in both the Health and Education sectors have both staged ‘Protest strikes’ for their own interests and were wildly successful… Ardern being incapable of saying *No!* to them…. why? Well firstly she is a very shallow operator who weighs lightly principles of Law… Due processes, spends almost no time in sober contemplation, but is driven by her feelings and a desire to be seen as someone who Rushes into the fray with her shallow womanly Liberalism to the rescue!
As such… at the pitiable sight of *Her own pet social demographics* waving emotive socialist Banners* She will relent to them… irrespective of whether or not their demands are just or fair.
She is consumed by her own vanity… and so another reason she is incapable of saying ‘No’ to Noisy Picketers because she is consumed about her own Political legacy as a Socialist Leader of ‘historic significance’ and to her Ego the well being of our Nation must take second place.
She is terrified at the thought that History may record that she said NO to ‘the victims of White privilege’… and she thinks nothing of breaking out the Public cheque book to make the noisy problem go away… even if her ‘solution’ is a bad one in the long term.
Ardern should never have waded in to the troubles at Ihumatao other than to say she expects the police to uphold the law and for Fletcher building to be able to commence their Development plans that they have the lawful right to do… yet she could not help herself and she has played into the hands of Troublemakers.
Ardern has overstepped her rightful authority as PM and trampled the law underfoot!
She has embroiled herself where she ought never to have set foot and in so doing has succeeded in entrenching the troublemakers who ought to be evicted *and prosecuted* for trespassing and interfering with a Lawful enterprise.
Yet now she is in a bind… and because she is so weak… the troublemakers from SOUL know that the greater the storm they can now Brew up at Ihumatau will without doubt succeed in achieving their goals… She will give into their demands… and they will chuckle to themselves that their absolute disregard for the law… and all their intimidation tactics will have given them a big payday… and this successful extortion of Weak government will only serve as a blueprint for ongoing future troubles!
SOUL will have proven that they can ignore such things as ‘Full and final Treaty settlements’.
Now let me talk about the Police who due to Arderns Leadership incompetence are fast becoming the Meat in the sandwich!
The New Zealand Police have been placed in an extremely difficult situation in fulfilling their duties to maintain Law and Order and prevent things getting way out of hand, and we can see from several different New reports that the strategy of the Troublemakers running the Protests is to use the brain dead Media to portray themselves as peaceful victims of Oppressive Police
treatment, not only to weaken the Police, and cause them to falter in carrying out their duties… effectively allowing the protesters to call the shots… but also I believe we can see these Subversive thinkers are looking for ways to create a ‘Bastion Point’ type outbreak of conflict with the Police.
While they are busy feigning they are peaceful to the media, nothing would please them more than if things got out of hand!
They know that any clash with Police that the Liberal media will sensationalise it and that this News could spark the Protest to swell exponentially as every Maori Radical comes out of the Bushes, and Bus loads of Woke White Social justice Warrior Antifa types descending on Ihumatau like a Barbarian horde!
Every unemployed New Zealander on welfare would be there!
These are the types that see no Irony in hating the government while collecting government welfare!
As a friend of mine commented on line…. dont any of these people have jobs?
Another question is who is funding S.O.U.L?
Are they receiving Government money to finance their operation via some convoluted means?
It is apparent that the Police themselves are aware of their dicey situation and that by maintaining a close and friendly interaction with the protesters were able to gain intel on a planned escalation and attempt to Re-occupy Fletcher Buildings property, and were only thwarted in their ambitions by the police preemptively calling in Reinforcements.
It is absurd to believe that the Police have any desire to provoke unnecessary strife that could quickly get out of hand and endanger public safety…esp at night and from a Video taken by one of the Stupid Protesters Monday night we got to see how these troublemakers are behaving towards the Police when the media is no where to be found.
It reveals disgusting racist taunts and remarks against officers… Some presumed to being Maori are accused of being traitors whom ‘should be ashamed’ of upholding the law
Another ‘Dark skinned’ Officer is presumed of being a Non-New Zealander was to to ‘Fuck off home’…
*This is the True face of SOUL*… what comes out after dark… and these Policemen showed absolute professionalism in the face of such provocation and it is a credit to them.
New Zealanders should pay little attention to the complaints by the protesters that the Police actions were excessive, and I also congratulate them for doing an excellent job in thwarting the devious intentions of S.O.U.L by bring in reinforcements!
Yet we should not think this will be the last time they try to occupy the Fletcher Building site.
The Police issued a statement (here) to the Public:
Statement regarding Ihumātao protest
Tuesday, 6 August 2019 – 10:43am
Attribute to Superintendent Jill Rogers, Counties Manukau District Commander:
Police recognises the lawful right to protest. For the past two weeks, our purpose at Ihumātao has been to uphold the law and keep the peace.
We have had regular meetings with organisers to ensure protest action remains peaceful.
Yesterday, during a meeting with organisers, the protestors communicated their intent to move past the cordon and reoccupy the land. In response to this, Police was required to increase our presence at the site. Officers had to be taken off their other duties to come to the protest site.
Despite repeated warnings from police, a large group of protestors attempted to bypass the police cordon.
Police attempted to stop those trespassing, but protestors pushed their way past our staff.
The protestors eventually vacated the private land and no arrests were made. Police reject allegations that a protestor was pushed over.
There is misinformation being circulated suggesting that Police have broken agreements with protestors.
Police cannot facilitate unlawful activity by allowing protestors who have been served an eviction notice to trespass on private land.
We would like to acknowledge the incredible professionalism our staff showed yesterday evening, and throughout the last two weeks despite at times being subjected to verbal abuse, being physically shoved and even in some cases being spat on.
Police will continue to assess the situation and our operational response, including talking to the protest organisers.
Police supports any process that will achieve a successful outcome for the parties involved.
Superintendent Jill Rogers will only be available for interviews today between 12.30pm – 1.30pm today. Email email@example.com (link sends e-mail) to arrange an interview time.
So it is that The ongoing Governments pandering to Radical Racist Maori, and Billions in treaty settlements has achieved almost *nothing* to put an end to their endless grievance!
Worse… It has fueled the flames of race hatred and contempt for the Law.
Treaty separatism has done zero to alleviate the dire social statistics of Maori!
And now there is every reason to believe Arden is about to make everything much worse!
Because she is weak and callous there is every reason to despair…
as she will fail to publicly declare that the process of settling any ‘Treaty grievances’ was lawfully concluded in 2014 .
If she uses a heavy legislative hand and ‘confiscates’ Fletcher Buildings property and gifts it to the Racist radicals running SOUL she will utterly destroy the modicum of credibility underpinning all the treaty settlements as being Full and final and in so doing ensnare our nation in perpetual grievance and Racial division.
Such a disastrous move inflict a Staggering wound to security of New Zealand Private property rights!
Its almost a given that Arden will fail to publicly instruct the Police to uphold the law, and protect the property rights of Fletcher Building to start their development forthwith, which may require another escalation of Police numbers and putting an end to this protest should the protesters refuse to disband in accordance with the Law… it may require mass arrests and convictions of protesters… the sooner the better to prevent this situation getting way out of hand.
Thanks to decades of pandering to Maori Radicals New Zealand must now contend with a very dangerous Ideological movement that is the the Treaty separatist movement.
Just how dangerous should be understood by how events at Ihuamatao are a powder keg!
Sooner or later New Zealand must confront the Ugly reality about the Maori separatism and their absolute disregard for the Law and Property rights… their vile racism against Non-Maori New Zealanders who in truth have just as much right to live here as they do!
The longer this evil is fed… the harder it will be to stamp out.
When I contemplate how deeply embedded the race-hatred is within the Maori separatist movement is it make a mockery of Arderns concerns about ‘Alt Right Nationalism’ in New Zealand… the likes of the notorious ‘Phil Arps’ being a infinitesimal minority in New Zealand compared to the massive number of Racist Maori who harbour deep hatred for their Pakeha neigbours!
And it has been Socialists of the same ilk as Ardern and her mentor Helen Clark who have used our education system to indoctrinate this race hatred into Maori!
And you wonder why after having your head filled with tales that you are the victim of white oppression why so many Young Maori men end up in jail?
Its because of the Toxic ideas they have been fed by left liberal like Ardern!
And now the Police must deal with the consequences.
Now New Zealand industries like Fletcher Building must endure blatantly corrupt violations of their rights by racist groups like S.O.U.L. who are doing everything the can to take their property and destroy their ambitions… right when Auckland is suffering a housing Crisis!
The New Zealand Government needs to Put an end to the Treaty settlement industry…. FULL AND FINAL!
Any Grievance henceforth assigned to history!
The Government must dismantle their Apartheid systems of State… abolish the race based electoral system.
Maori must quit their endless Whinging for hands out… Quit their lives of Crime… Get jobs and take care of their own lives by hard yaka like the rest of New Zealand does!
And if it takes a period of social unrest to destroy the evils of Treaty racism and ‘entitlement’ among Maori whom harbour race hatred towards their non-Maori neighbours then so be it!
Non-Maori New Zealanders have done Maori no harm whatsoever and its time Maori snapped out of the delusion that they are victims of anything other than their own lack of ethics and hard work! In Truth it is Non-Maori who are the victims!
They are the ones who suffer endless strife from Maori Criminals, Maori welfare, and Maori bigotry…. ALL THIS VILE RACIST EVIL… that comes under the heading of Treaty separatism.
This shameful Bigotry against Non-Maori is what we New Zealanders must destroy… if we are ever to see an end to the troubles such as are brewing now at Ihuamatao.
Non-Maori New Zealanders have rights and its time the government respected them!
When will New Zealand gain the Moral courage and have the Caliber of Leadership we desperately need to lead our Nation out of this racist mire?
Back in the early 2000s, When Don Brash was Leader of the National Party he was one man who could see the evils of Treaty separatism and was prepared to stand up and lead the way towards and Nation of One Law for all.
And New Zealand rallied to his side.
He was only prevented from becoming PM by The election fraud of Helen Clark (pledgecardgate) and the dirty dealing of Winston First accepting the Baubles of Office!
With this swindle New Zealand lost our best hope of Ending treaty separatism that has come along in decades.
Though Don Brash continues to stand against Waitangi racism via his Lobby group ‘Hobson’s Pledge‘, We have never since had any leadership that has been willing to confront this race relations Crisis, latter National Party Leaders John Key and Bill English actually went into coalition government with the racist radicals of the Maori Party!
They were terrified of confronting the problem as they feared ‘Hokois from Hell’… and so this evil has been allowed to fester and grow…
Only when New Zealanders themselves decide they have had enough of all this ugly business and elect principled political leadership who stand for office upon the principle of One law for all New Zealanders, and have the spine and moral fortitude to do what it takes to ridding our country of the influence of Racist Maori radicals will our country finally be free of their Guile, and the Rule of Law and Justice be established.
One thing is for sure… Ardern and Winston Peters are not the principled Leadership Our country desperately needs.
Protesters at Ihumātao are “radical rebels” who “want the world to burn”, according to MagicTalk host Sean Plunket.
Plunket let rip on the demonstrators who have been protesting at the south Auckland site for the past few weeks, after occupiers were served an eviction notice. They say the land is sacred and want a planned housing development on the site blocked.
The protesters have been in a standoff with police ever since, with tensions peaking on Monday night. Increased policing numbers were deployed, and protest leader Pania Newton claimed she had been pushed to the ground by an officer – something police reject.
A video Newshub reported on Wednesday also shows a protester racially abusing an officer.
Currently, protesters are in talks with relevant parties to find a way forward. The Prime Minister announced last month that there would be a temporary halt to construction until that happened.
But Plunket said it was clear that protesters had no legal right to be there, and should leave the site immediately.
Kōwhatu ki te Uru is an important Te Kawerau-a-Maki ancestor. This carving of him at Karekare is by Sunnah Thompson, a Te Kawerau-a-Maki artist. Kōwhatu ki te Uru built the pā Te Kākāwhakaara… from here
Having a good grasp of world history is essential for any New Zealander, if they are to have any hope in grasping just how different the British colonisation of New Zealand was compaired to the colonisation of other countries like America, and Australia.
The revisionist Narrative that has been foisted upon our nation by successive governments control of the Media and education system *relies on the ignorance* of the New Zealand population.
To understand the colonisation of New Zealand correctly a person must understand all the great milestones in the Development of the British Empire, including the Reformation, The revolutions, the colonization of America, The enlightenment, the American Declaration of independence, the Abolition of Slavery in the British empire, and esp the political scene in Britain before 1840.
Most importantly people need to appreciate the Character of the main players involved in the colonisation of New Zealand… their motives… and the great pains they went through to ensure the well being of the indigenous population… the injunctions to guard against rapine… the legal safeguards employed that show the benevolent concern for the Maori people.
Its all there in the history books for anyone to go read for themselves… yet that is precisely the history Our socialist government and the Radicals *dont want you to understand* because it blows gigantic holes in their revisionist narrative that paints the colonisation of New Zealand as a racist invasion.
So it is that an appreciation of the big picture is essential as such understanding sets the proper historical context for how the colonisation of New Zealand actually happened.
Without turning this post into a book length exposition I will focus on just one aspect of this story of New Zealand’s British Colonisation that has inadvertently been made very relevant by current events… of the private company Fletcher Buildings housing developments at Ihumatao.
I want to talk about the political septic swamp that has been highlighted at Ihunatao that is typical of the whole treaty grievance industry… esp the corrupt Political opportunism and modus opperandi of the likes of NZ PM Jacinda Ardern and the Greens.
I would like to point out an extreme irony taking place!
How ironic it is that Green Party MPs and radical activists and protesters are attempting to smear the Fletcher housing development in an evil light claiming that their Housing scheme at Ihumatao as being ‘Colonisation in action’!
Yes they want to make out this is another case of Pakeha greed and oppression of ‘poor Maori’!
Unfortunately many people who are rightly affronted by these radical claims will still themselves be of the opinion that the British colonisation of New Zealand was driven by Greed and racism… as that is the narrative they have been spoon fed by our government… none the less these people will deny that what Flectcher Building is doing can be so construed to be ‘Colonisation in action’.
It is rather simply Land development in a modern society, building much needed housing for a city in dire need.
I agree with such an evaluation… yet still let me now point out that how Fletchers have behaved in this affair *is in a very positive way* comparative to how a very historic Colonial Company envisioned that colonisation and development ought to take place… following a code of high ethics and high moral values, and Good will towards Maori.
I am referring to Edward Gibbon Wakefield, and his New Zealand company.
In modern times both Wakefield and The New Zealand Company have suffered extreme post-humus character assignations by those with malevolent political agendas, determined to bury the enlightened truth about the colonisation of New Zealand, and supplant it with a Bastardisation of history… rewriting colonisation as a Racist scheme of systematic oppression and greed!
Yet as I have already said… such Modern revisionist propaganda relies upon ignorant and unlearned ears.
So let me now explain why I actually accept the argument that Fletchers development in many ways can be seen as ‘Colonisation in action’.
I say it’s actually 100% true… but not in the negative sense that these haters and nutbar Green party Mps suggest… but in a very positive way Fletchers is demonstrating a principle that was first enunciated by Edward Gibbon Wakefield and later published in his great work ‘the Art of colonisation 1849 ‘ which proves the very opposite *motivation* was at the heat of British colonistaion of New Zealand.
Not only was Wakfields motivation the relief of overcrowding and poverty in Britain, but also the welfare and betterment of the ‘native’ population of New Zealand.
Early 19th century ‘Aotearoa’ (NZ) was Stone Age and barbarous.
Cannibalism and tribal warfare were the norm.
European whalers were working the Seas and had established Drinking and whoredom at Russell… then known as the ‘black hole of the Pacific’… and as such tensions began to mount between thes lawless Riffraf and the Maori People…
The level of poverty here is best described as third world… yet it was out of a Protestant Christian belief in spreading the light of the Gospel into the darkest regions of the earth in obedience to their divine calling that ‘Mechanic Missionaries’ first arrived here from the Church missionary society… bringing with them the arts of the Modern world… and preaching the brotherhood of mankind.
It was the Missionaries along with NZ Resident James Bugsby whose council led the Coalition of Maori Chiefs tp petition the English Crown to bring New Zealand under their imperial wing and establish the rule of Law.
New Zealand was the last nation on Earth to be colonsied by Britain, and as such Britain (esp Wakefield) had learned a great deal from their past endeavors… esp the painful lessons of the American revolution and declaration of Independence.
Before 1840, England at the very time of Wakefield was writing ‘The Art of Colonisation’ had already abolished slavery, and was experiencing a wave of Humanitarian ideals esp with regard to the Equality of all human beings.
It is a matter of public record that Hobson’s instructions (which he did with Bugsby’s aid) was to treat with the Indigenous people of New Zealand for their voluntary session of sovereignty over the country to the British Crown in exchange for their establishment of Law and Order… and their Protection from France.
Though the Expanse of British Empire was at it Zenith in power and domination, still she was very reluctant in accepting responsibility for New Zealand.
Not only was it on the opposite side of the world, Britain had sustained heavy financial burdens and troubles from it’s colonies and was in no mood for more of the same.
The Treaty of Waitangi is a testament to the beneficent attitude of Britain towards the Maori People, and their concerns for them that they be fairly treated during the inevitable colonisation of New Zealand that was already in process.
The 2nd clause of the Treaty that allows for Maori to sell any lands they were willing to part with directly to the British Crown, not only was it a safeguard against Land Sharks swindling them. but also reflects a fundamental principle of Wakefield’s ‘Art of Colinisation’ whereby Land is acquired *and Pooled* by the government, surveyed, given title, and systematically on sold to Colonists at a rate that would prevent a Glut of available land being on the market and thus by this means maintain property values.
This is an economic lesson he learned by appreciating the disasters that unfolded during the un-systemaic colonisation of other countries like Australia.
By controlling the Land supply to the market, Wakefield argued that the colonial government will be able to get better prices… and use the money for infrastructure, Public works, and cover the expenses of Government administration (sparing British taxpayers of an extra burden).
Wakefield’s ‘Art’ of colonisation and development was *self funding* and designed to insure the indigenous population were fairly treated .
Furthermore… not only was Wakfield’s enlightened principles embodied in the Treaty of Waitangi… a treaty designed for the welfare of the Maori people, making them equal Brittish subjects with their Pakeha neighbours… enjoying all the same rights… and having the same protections of the Law… Wakefield’s ‘New Zealand Company’ planned to bring a controlled and steady flow of Migrants from England (bringing relief from the squalor and overcrowding of British cities that had resulted from the industrial revolution and subsequent urbanization)… Migrants of the Best moral character and enterprise (unlike the convicts who were shipped to Australia), and to purchase land to create settlements… towns… and his plans for such settlements not only called for respect of the indigenous population, but also included allotments for them *within the settlements*!
not only does this display an inclusive disposition towards Maori-pakeha co-existence and mutual assimilation, and association, Wakfield also had a grasp of economic realities and benefits that are derived when wilderness is converted into a hub of human activity.
Property goes from being of small value, into being highly valued when it is a part of a thriving community, via the law of supply and demand!
Wakefied knew that the allotments given to the indigenous folk living within the community would increase exponentially in value, comparative to when the land lay as unoccupied waste.
And Wakfield was keen to see the indigenous population enjoy their portion of such gains that come from colonisation!
Likewise when we jump forward almost 2 centuries we see from the deal reportedly done between themselves and Te Kawerau a Maki that Fletcher Building has acted in both a generous and inclusive manor and insured that the tribes people will also benefit from the development!
And it is my contention that in truth this reflects the true spirit by which the historic collonisation of New Zealand!
This is why both Maori and Pakeha cultures have assimilated each other to the degree that via intermarriage we have become *one people*… New Zealanders!
And this truth is 100% at variance with the filthy and slanderous lies being peddled by the hate-filled and greed driven racist radicals who profit from Treaty separatism!
We are seeing here with Fletcher’s voluntarily reaching an accord with the Tribal hierarchy Te Kawerau a Maki… taking pains to respect the tribes sacred places, and providing them with allotments within the new ‘settlement’ mirrors very well with the intents of Wakefields ‘Art of colonisation’… and as the development will enhance the value of land in the area, so too will the tribe benefit from the capital gains that will accrue upon the properties they have.
There is of course one difficulty with ‘Tribalism’ when it comes to Property that tends to devalue land and restrict development… when Land titles are locked into some sort of Tribal commons as this can inhibit the ‘fungibility’ of the title… hindering investment… making it harder to leverage mortgages, etc… yet all these types of problems are not the fault of ‘Evil Colonial oppression’, but of how collective tribal land titles are not conducive to Free enterprise.
This is a whole story in itself that is not within the scope of this post… the important point is however how Fletcher Building have demonstrated a very respectful and beneficial attitude towards the Tribe…which is in fact well in keeping with the whole colonisation process of New Zealand… yet and these facts are at variance with the malicious claims being made by Protesting Radicals!
So lets list some Ihumatao facts.
1. The claim that the Ihumatao land was forcefully taken from the tribe during the Land confiscations after the wars of the 1860s *is False*!
There are maps available that clearly show the pastel of land is well outside the demarcation of confiscated land.
2. The Tribe signed a full and final Treaty settlement with Treaty negotiations Minister Chris Finlayson in 22 feb 2014
3. The Green and Labour party Ministers voted in support of this settlement in parliament.
4. Fletchers has set about to achieve their Building scheme fully compliant with the law… gaining all the necessary consents, and even went the extra mile in gaining the Blessing of the Tribal hierarchy… voluntarily Gifting Te Kawerau a Maki back an area that was of cultural significance to them, plus allotments within the development in which their people will be able to live!
We have come to expect the Nut-bar and ignoramus Green party to be completely devoid of reason and so it is no surprise to see their MPs standing among the trespassing and deluded protesters. yet by failing to maintain her distance Jacinda Ardern has acted in an extremely foolish, dangerous, and illegal manor by putting her foot into this swap… suggesting that her government supports the protesters and that Flecthers must halt their development and sit across the table with these protesters whom have *zero factual or Legal basis* for claims upon that land and its use!
Act party’s David Seymour has publicly stated that Jacinda Ardern is encouraging illegal behaviour (here)
And Tribal leader David Rankin say he is going to lay a complaint against Ardern with the Police for overstepping her Executive authority as PM and interfering in a legal agreement…
“A senior member of the iwi, Mr Rankin said he would lodge a complaint with police that the Prime Minister used her position to interfere in a legal transaction and as a consequence would deprive the iwi of dozens of homes which Fletchers had contracted to provide to the mana whenua.”… read more here
She has even tried to prevent media asking about Ihumātao read here
The sane portions of the New Zealand population have had a guts full of the Treaty grievance Radicals and witnessing the fact that these radicals show contempt even for treaty settlements upon which the ink has barely dried… and that Jacinda Ardern herself thinks she can arbitrarily trample underfoot legal contracts show that she has little compunction against abusing her powers as PM.
Now I have little doubt that my blog post will have caused some people to reading this to wish a pox upon my house… those whom have been thoroughly brainwashed into the belief that the colonisation of New Zealand by the British was one sort of ‘mega Crime against humanity’, none the less it is my testimony that to believe such a thing is a vile injustice upon the many great and noble characters who are a part of New Zealand’s British heritage, whom are routinely defamed and vilanized.
I make no apology for standing up in their defense… and in fact calling for an end to this slander, and for New Zealanders to give these great pioneers the admiration and respect they deserve!
Current affairs at Ihumatao also demonstrate the historic fact that even when the best of intentions to make fair Land deals with tribes, that often troublemakers will still make counter-claims of injustice against people who have acted with honest intent and within the law. Historically speaking Many of the notable disputes over land can be understood by the fact that prior to the establishment of British law, surveying, and land titles, in Pre-colonial New Zealand ‘ownership of land’ was virtually only by ‘occupation’ and secured only by force of arms… and constantly violently contested in tribal wars.
It was Christianity and British Rule that eventually brought an end to this Brutal and endless struggle and established peace between the tribes.
Wakefield’s grave in Wellington should be a national monument!
Every school child should learn about the Military exploits of Gustavus Von Tempsky!
And yet we live in such times in which Celebrating our British heritage is almost illegal.
Just look at all the lies being told about Captain James Cook!
Look how the hate-filled racist radicals want to remove his monuments!
The Colonial history of New Zealand is fabulous!
Full of heroism, and toil, and enterprise that was the foundation for the world famous New Zealand character!
It was via breaking in this wilderness and transforming it into a modern enlightened society that our Mettle was forged!
This is the source of why our Tiny nation has always produced the greatest Troupes, and athletes… and world leaders in Civil reforms!
I was no accident that Everest was conquered by a New Zealander!
Yet I fear that our best is now behind us!
Our nation has been taken over by a bunch of whinging and emasculated and self immolating SJWs who have been taught to hate their own skins.
Why do you New Zealanders tolerate the historic vandalism of these ingrates… these dangerous and divisive radicals?
You are flushing both your Epic Historic cultural inheritance, and the Future well being of your descendants down the toilet!
Shame on you!

Government must uphold Treaty settlement, police must evict Ihumatao protesters
Joint statement from Fletcher Building and Te Kawerau Iwi Tribal Authority & Settlement Trust.
With regards to the weekend’s ‘Reclamation Festival’ at Ihumatao, Fletcher Residential Limited, the Makaurau Marae Maori Trust Board and The Te Kawerau Iwi Settlement Trust & Tribal Authority, collectively the land owner of the Oruarangi Road SHA site and mana whenua of Ihumatao feel it is appropriate to remind the media that:
– The land at Oruarangi Road is a designated Special Housing Area, on privately-owned land that has been farmed extensively for the last 150 years. It is located between the existing village of Ihumatao, the edge of the Auckland Airport business precinct and the Otuataua Stonefields Reserve.
– Plans for the site have been developed in partnership with mana whenua in such a way that supports their sustainable kaitiakitanga of the surrounding area. This includes devoting a quarter of the site along the boundary of the Stonefields Reserve to protect and enhance connectivity, especially from the village. This piece of land within the development area will be the first time since the land confiscations of 1863 that land will be returned to mana whenua. The agreement to have this land returned to mana whenua was negotiated between Fletchers, Makaurau Marae Maori Trust and Te Kawerau Iwi Tribal Authority. Auckland City Council was consulted during this process.
– The protest group SOUL does not represent mana whenua of Ihumatao.
– Members of the United Confederation of Tribes along with members of the so called, “Kaitiaki village” do not represent mana whenua of Ihumatao.
– Pania Newton who previously led the SOUL protest group is not mana whenua nor has she been mandated to represent mana whenua of Ihumatao. Pania has wilfully misled SOUL followers and the general public regarding ‘land issues’ at Ihumatao.
– Pania, her supporters and SOUL followers continue to unlawfully occupy the privately owned site preventing the development of much needed new housing, which through the partnership between Fletcher and mandated mana whenua representation, will provide housing opportunities for descendants with whakapapa and strong cultural connections to return to the area.
