Our mass media – mindless, mischievous, malicious…? Is it actually corrupt?

See below. From Bruce Moon, to  the editor of The Nelson Mail, Sunday, August 5, 2018

Dear Victoria,
A lot of propaganda and very distorted stories about land have been circulating recently in the news media, including the “Nelson Mail”.  What is invariably concealed is the primary fact that the tribes were only too eager to exchange large areas of surplus land for material goods which the Europeans provided.  To provide that “balance” which our public library and the chief executive officer of the City Council have asserted to me as being so essential, I provide herewith therefore an article of mine which is not propaganda but is accurately based on the hard facts of history to which references are given.
 
You may recall, too, that on 2nd March 2016 the “Mail” featured prominently an article by John and Hilary Mitchell which I found to be inaccurate and unbalanced in several respects.  I wrote for you therefore a piece to correct their shortcomings, but you chose to ignore it.  I am pleased to report,  however,  that not long afterwards it did appear in the “Northern Age” whose editor, Peter Jackson, shows the great merit of printing material as freely from one side as the other, thereby allowing his readers to make up their own minds on matters of importance.  It is attached below.
Very recently, too, a correspondent sent me the editorial page of the “Mail” for September 9, 2000 with the bold “Mailbox” headline “Dr Mitchell’s ancestors guilty of genocide too”.  Two letters, by B Tod of Motueka and David Curl of Nelson, describe the brutal pre-1840 practices of Maori tribes including the genocide and wholesale cannibalism inflicted on the innocent people of the Chatham Islands by Ngati Mutunga and Ngati Tama – from whom John claims descent.  John had apparently written in support of  Tariana Turia who had made the outrageous claim of a “holocaust” in British settlement of New Zealand – a term surely more accurately applied to his own tribe’s behaviour.  Curiously, on the very same page the “Quote of the week” reports then Finance Minister Michael Cullen stating that Ms Turia had accepted the Prime Minister’s edict that “ministers should not use That Term” [sic].  Well, well!
 
I refer also to my talk “A Jaundiced View of the Treaty” for whose title I selected John’s own reported words.  As far as I know and notwithstanding my cordial invitation, nobody from the “Mail” attended its very successful presentation on 7th July at the rooms of the Hearing Association whose acceptance of the importance of free speech evidently outweighed its fear of “a health and safety issue”.  This had, I understand, cowed the Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology, the Elim Church, the Masonic Temple and Fairfield House into declining to make their premises available.
 

Thus it is attached too for your information.  It was delivered to a very attentive full house – in fact a notice to that effect had to be posted two minutes before its scheduled start.  There was not a single attempt at heckling or any other disturbance; questions and comments were courteous and relevant.  Its success is at least a small contribution to the defence of truth, fairness and democracy which are so much at peril in New Zealand today.  Elsewhere, in consequence of its earlier banning, it has appeared in various social media and assuredly been read by many more people that would ever had done so had it been delivered as intended in the first place.

As one commentator put it, Nelson now appears to be the prime candidate for the distinction of being the first town in New Zealand to indulge in book-burning, though possibly Auckland may vie for that dubious distinction.

 
With my compliments,
 
Bruce M

This very brave man has long been been fighting back. Who is going to help him?

This is a serious question. New Zealand is now in many ways at the crossroads – and it depends on each of us which way it’s going to go… as so much needs to be reclaimed – ( To understand how, see www.100days.co.nz).

What can one conclude, looking at the record of our media giants these years, and the utter bias demonstrated by the now almost inevitable, one-sided presentation of very important issues?

These include the heavy-handed promotion of the politics of racial superiority.

The lack of much-needed scrutinising of the massively costly and divisive Maori supremacy movement – by no means supported by most part-Maori  – but  gaining far too much mileage in being pushed by a relatively  few radicalised extremists – has reached disgraceful levels.

And the biggest challenge to every New Zealander has to be that none of us can walk away and say it doesn’t matter.  It matters very much.

It is individuals, accumulatively, who count. We can ring up the local newspaper – and say we’ve had enough – tell the editors. They won’t like it – but we needn’t grieve over that 🙂 And if you have done your bit…and someone else does the same thing…on it goes. Even if it was only you – you count.

Or what about contacting Talkback – and/or asking your MP, your paid employee, what he/she is doing to represent you and the majority in opposing this damaging movement?

MPs don’t like Talkback. No surprises there. It so very often tells them how so many New Zealanders really feel…

And behind it all, what about the fine individuals you/ we let down, by doing nothing to support them?

We don’t have to be experts in any particular area to realise that there are things very wrong in a number of important areas.

What about saying that we’ve had enough of deliberate bias? And does it raise the question of a basic corruption within these media? 

One brave man, among others, has long been challenging this.

The witch-hunt against Allan Titford?

The Witch-hunt against Allan Titford?

COPYRIGHT © KAPITI INDEPENDENT NEWS

July 24, 2018  

Amy Brooke believes that 24 Years, The Trials of Allan Titford by Mike Butler exposes judicial failure in both the district court and the Court of Appeal.

Some justice at last?

At last, thanks to Mike Butler and Tross Publishing, some justice for a man who has basically been framed?

As a socio-political commentator at the time, I recall being increasingly concerned at what looked very like a loaded gun, metaphorically speaking, which had been pointed at Allan Titford.

I was horrified at the charges that had been levelled against him on the flimsiest of evidence – much of it based on accusations which simply should not have carried weight in a genuine court of justice.

Questions about the Waitangi Tribunal

Equally shockingly has been the utterly undemocratic, and indeed arguably corrupt, processes under which The Waitangi Tribunal has  been allowed to operate.

Much of this is detailed in my book –

“The 100 days – Claiming back New Zealand – what has gone wrong and how we can control our politicians.”

Flawed from its inception, the tribunal has been granted far more respect than it deserves, and, biased in its findings, it has basically brought itself into disrepute.

That our political parties have given far too much credence to its findings, and that there is even provision for its findings to be binding on government is completely unacceptable.

So is what has happened to Allan Titford, with an almost unbelievable sentence of 24 years of imprisonment!  More than for committing murder…. utterly incredible!

That this whole saga is an indictment on our justice system is an understatement. It is more than time for these issues to be addressed. And it is time our government fronted up.

Mike Butler explains how corrupt our justice system has become in 24 Years, The Trials of Allan Titford.

Uncovering the truth

In 1987 Allan Titford was being driven off his farm by people who claimed that part of it was Maori land. His story captured the hearts and minds of many New Zealanders.

However, in 2013, when he was jailed for more than 24 years, he was called “a slave driver, a monster and a liar”.

This book tells how a treaty claim took private land against the will of its owners despite evidence that the claim was unjustified.

It also analyses how Allan Titford was jailed for such a long time.

The record jail term is bizarre considering that 12 charges relied on the uncorroborated testimony of a person who admitted to perjury.

Moreover, many of the 53 charges against him were hardly tested in court.

It also shows a hidden parallel story about how the justice system was played for financial gain.

This book exposes judicial failure in both the district court and the Court of Appeal.

It asks whether the process used against Allan Titford is standard practice in the New Zealand justice system and how many more victims have been locked up by using these methods.

I have just finished reading 24 Years and as I have been very involved with Allan and Susan Titford since the “false” claim was place on Allan’s freehold titled property at Maunganui Bluff, I can confirm this is a true and accurate accounts of the events that ended with Allan being jailed for 24 years because of our corrupt justice system. A must read”.

The bully boys and girls have gone too far

https://www.spectator.com.au/2018/07/the-bully-boys-and-girls-have-gone-too-far/

We all know that among human beings, in every ethnic grouping, individuals vary enormously. And I’ll always recall with gratitude the kindness of a Wellington Muslim café owner, Abdel, who, learning that we had just come from farewelling my mother, brought my sister and me a cup of coffee with an almond biscuit – and would take no payment.

Any well-justified concern at the aggressive worldwide march of Islam needs to take into account that most people share basic aims, wanting peace for their families and the best for their children. We have this in common with New Zealanders of all backgrounds – including family-minded Muslims who now regard themselves as New Zealanders and have happily become part of our communities.

However, the threat to this country from radicalised Islam targeting, propagandising, recruiting, even virtually blackmailing its own people is very real. So New Zealanders have a right to know what steps the government is taking to safeguard this country – and to limit the intake from those from Islamic background.

We should now be well aware, given what is happening right throughout Europe, and even in our closest neighbour, Australia, that when the numbers are sufficiently large, assimilation is replaced by virtual enclaves, or ghettoised settlements. Women and young girls continue to be sexually mutilated and basically enslaved by their male relatives, forced or brainwashed to wearing anachronistic, burdensome clothing,  while Islam’s deep antagonism to Christianity and the West should make us very wary of our government’s apparent naivety – if not incompetence  – in the face of its strident minority demands.

We all now well know the pattern happening world-wide. Radicalised activists from other cultures, sheltering within ethnic groups, begin to challenge majority rule – and to demand the damaging separatism which has occurred under the manipulative, ideological demands for multiculturalism.

So-called diversity, the superior merits of which we are constantly assailed with, is simply a weasel word wielded like a bludgeon to propagandise and intimidate New Zealanders beginning to ask well-overdue questions about what is happening to this country.

It is time for our politicians put their hands up to answer them. Our political parties’ responsibility is given to them by New Zealanders – to represent us, in accordance with our wishes – not to constantly over-ride them. But it is the latter which has now become entrenched.

Goodbye Fairfax and NZME – no loss now…

Goodbye Fairfax and NZME – no loss at all…

https://kapitiindependentnews.net.nz/goodbye-nelson-mail/

Apparently, around the country, I gather, from reaction to my recent letter of farewell to the Nelson Mail, individuals who’ve also cancelled subscriptions to Stuff newspapers are being contacted by editorial staff asking them why.

They can’t be serious, can they?  It should be more than obvious to even the apparently severely challenged new breed of editorialists why the retreat from their second-rate publications is gathering speed.

My long attempt to persuade our local editor to stop suppressing letters which either she or the letters editor found displeasing recently came to an end. To know of fine, highly qualified correspondents continually denied the right to comment – particularly in relation to challenging activist propaganda and quite wrong assertions  – meant I could no longer support a paper so now essentially biased and basically thoroughly dumbed down.

Enter the Kapiti Independent News – with its increasingly enthusiastic readership. It presents a very good example of the way forward for the small, independent community newspapers now offering themselves as weeklies to step in and attract the interest of readers.

With so many now accessing the web for national and overseas news, local journals that will concentrate on two vital areas  – (the much-needed scrutinising of local council activities , and providing a forum for the letters to the editor – the two areas that most concern local people) –  will come into their own. If these can manage to remain independent, then there is every chance they will morph into a genuine, worthwhile replacement to their community than what were once far more worthwhile publications.

The politics of corruption? Why are we paying the Clintons?

It was Bill and Hillary Clinton whose highly unsavoury carryings-on caused political commentator Christopher Hitchens to call his book Nobody Left to Lie To  – exposing what was happening behind-the-scenes during Bill Clinton’s deservedly controversial presidency.  For a reality check on what the Clintons got up to, this book is a must.   It is possibly the one book by this prolific writer that his brilliant brother, Peter, who wrote the highly readable and prescient book, The Abolition of Britain, and the equally important The Abolition of Liberty, would have endorsed.  Peter’s thinking was very much opposed to his brother’s, and his warnings have been prophetic. The ideologically-opposed Christopher, who started out as a Democrat, was ultimately shocked and repelled by the activities of this constantly media-lauded pair.

So what possible excuse, given that it is obvious by now that we are a well and truly cash-strapped country, does our government have for forcing New Zealanders to support the highly dubious Clinton Foundation?  https://www.investors.com/politics/clinton-foundation-scandal/ 

 Even Australia has put a stop to payments to this controversial, FBI-investigated Foundation. And given the fact that New Zealand is now cash-strapped,  living on borrowed money, why is our Labour coalition continuing such handouts? New Zealanders are waking up to the fact that we have been basically conned about how well National was balancing the books, while culpably under-funding even basic hospital and mental health services to a shocking extent – and failing to prioritise urgent housing needs – while, at the same time, continuing to pour hundreds of millions of our dollars accumulatively into the coffers of self-serving iwi prepared to even falsify their claims with a view to the main chance.  

Why was Hillary Clinton even in New Zealand recently? My local paper, The Nelson Mail, going from bad to worse without much apparent effort, now regularly regurgitates Stuff reports so embarrassingly biased and under-informed that that they are almost incredible. Hence its usual euphoria about the wonderful Hillary, and the baby-talk between her and our pregnant Prime Minister. One should hand it to our mainstream media, constantly increasing their reputation for awful print, TV and broadcasting journalism, and exceeding themselves in relation to this scandal-ridden woman…while losing no opportunity to demonise Trump. 

Lindsay Perigo’s comments highlight the inexcusable difference between the basically fawning treatment Hillary Clinton was given, and what should have been asked…”really tough questions—about Benghazi, Uraniumgate, deleted e-mails, the illegal private server, rigging the campaign against Bernie, paying for the dirty dossier against Trump, accepting squillions of dollars from Muslim countries that are yoooooge on women’s rights, etc. ” Lindsay long warned of the new era of brain-dead media.  We could have also asked Hillary if her record of proven lying (among other porkies, she claimed she was named after Edmund Hillary…) ever causes her any embarrassment.

But, essentially why are our own pockets still being raided to donate to any pet project of the Clintons?

From an informed commentator, we have it that “It was John Key who started sending money to the Clinton Foundation – $7 million, without any approval from anyone. He departed the day it was announced! But Bill English sent another ‘donation’ of $5 million not long afterwards.”
Why? http://alcp.org.nz/node/278  But this was by no means the only time Key acted without the country’s approval, with English, seemingly, his over-loyal yes-man.

It all continues. Recently from Jordan Williams, Executive Director, New Zealand Taxpayers’ Union, to another correspondent:

“Earlier today we went public with documents obtained under the Official Information Act showing the new Government is giving more taxpayer money to a subsidiary of the Clinton Foundation – the Clinton Health Access Initiative.

“We can reveal that the Clinton Initiative will receive $5.5 million in 2018/19, on top of the $8 million taxpayers forked out under the previous Government.

“Remember: the Clinton Foundation is currently under investigation by the FBI over the way it obtained funding from foreign governments while Hillary Clinton was US Secretary of State. It was during this period that the previous Government started funding it.

“This evening, Secretary Clinton is rubbing shoulders with political and business leaders in Auckland. We have called on the new Foreign Minister, Winston Peters, to politely wait until Ms Clinton leaves the country, then announce an end to funding for the Clinton Health Access Initiative.”

Labour is now going down a well-worn path if it continues with this inexcusable give-away of public money as, at the same time, it ramps up the equally inexcusable prioritising of racist preferences for those claiming to be part-Maori (no actual proof needed – and no valid reason supplied). This, while knee-capping the country by refusing to allow any more oil and gas exploration, and planning to tax New Zealanders even further in relation to the now conclusively disproved, man-made global warning beat-up…so passionately still promoted by scientists whose funding has depended on this.

Stupid is as stupid does – but it is we New Zealanders paying the price for this basic incompetence,  if not political corruption, in the constant kow-towing to wealthy vested-interest groups

The level of possible corruption  within the National Party is now being brought home to New Zealanders, together with the fact that a former  Chinese Communist with a very dubious political record is now a National Party MP  (!)  Granted a high List placing (why?) Jian Yang, was reportedly of interest to the SIS.  Strangely enough, he did not mention in his CV the decade he spent in the People’s liberation Army-Air Force Engineering College, or the Luoyang Language Institute – run by China’s equivalent of the United State’s National Security Agency which conducts spying activities for China. 

The majority of National’s campaign funding before the last election was given by wealthy Communist Chinese backers (no doubt the same who understandably pressured the seemingly only too willing John Key to remove the Union Jack from our flag). And questions still need to be asked about why highly productive farmland was handed over to Communist-Chinese backed companies which are now reportedly finding it convenient for military-related use.  Why in fact were the Crayfar farms not available to be bought in New Zealand except as a job lot – putting them out of the reach of New Zealand buyers – when they were advertised for sale individually overseas?

Some will be shocked – but others will not find it at all surprising that a “Blue Dragon”-called group of Chinese supporters now exists within the National Party to prioritise Chinese interests. Plus ça change?  Not our political parties’ naivety. Jacinda Arden is also sure we have no Russian spies in New Zealand, a claim so embarrassing that a well-respected analyst regards it as turning us into a laughing-stock.

 Our predominately liberal-left New Zealand media have a uncanny ability to unfailingly lionise individuals like the more than the controversial Clintons and Barack Obama, the most un-American President of all, controversially enabling Iran to work towards an eventual nuclear capacity, while not requiring any concessions with regard to its oppressive treatment of women, and those fighting for an end to its ongoing persecutions of dissidents. Iran is perceived as even now engaging in clandestine efforts in clear contradiction to the Iran nuclear deal.  Repugnantly, the pro-abortion Barack Obama even, like the Clintons, favours the horrific, partial birth abortions so shocking more and more Americans. Then we have our own media-loved politicians like the agenda-driven Helen Clark – intent on her One World Government ideology, who so successfully set out to destroy the combat wing of our air force…her excuse reported to be the ridiculous and provedly wrong claim that, “We live in an incredibly benign environment.”

We can count on our own, now historically and thoroughly ill-educated mainstream media commentators to think how wonderful they all are. But away from the heady circles of these gossipy and credulous fellow travellers, it would be a very naive New Zealander who isn’t now well aware some of today’s prominent world leaders are committed activists, with little apparent intention of putting the interests of their country before their own agenda.

However, they attract no much-needed scrutiny from our commentariat.  Canada’s embarrassingly juvenile and bullying Trudeau; France’s controversial Macron, who supports the open-door policy towards migrants from The Middle East and Africa pursued by Angela Merkel  in Germany –  the same  Angela Merkel whose folly has caused the map of Europe to be ominously coloured with the star and crescent moon of a resurgent and militant Islam. Closer to home, Australia’s  beleaguered Turnbull’s costly,  ill-thought policies have taken from Australia any claim to be still called The Lucky Country.

And New Zealand? The stupid country?   However, the growing gap between what really is the silent majority,  increasingly concerned about the sell-out of our country, and the “useful idiots” of the mainstream media is growing. And what is really bad news for politicians, in relation to the all-time low in respect in which they are held by the country, is the  very timely sign of people’s willingness to support claiming this country back from those who have abused the principles of democratic representation.  

See –  www.100days.co.nz and Facebook-100daystoDemocracy.

For a much needed corrective to the our mainstream media’s incompetent analysis of what is happening,  in relation to issues which will, and do, impinge on this small county, it’s well worth spending the time to read the brilliant David Flint’s Aux Bien Pensants...written by the co-author of Give Us back Our Country, who acknowledges our prior initiative The 100 Days – Claiming Back New Zealand…– outlined in my book of this title – as his prior inspiration.

Anzac Day

Anzac Day

Perhaps in the end
they didn’t mind dying so much;
but wouldn’t you, just twenty-two?

You, worn out, sleeping only fitfully,
a trench bed of muddy clay and water,
soaked to the skin, propped up on sandbags –
pyjamas, man? You’ve worn the same clothes
for weeks, filthy, smelling, depressed
by dysentery, a fortnight’s rain on and off
and on…thinking before dawn of home…

longing in this surrealistic world
of dirt and damp and hunger, the horror
of good mates hanging over barbed wire,
a head joined only to a helmet…

to see them all once more, and say
the things you wished you’d said before.

You say them now, or scribble them down,
think their world might yet be saved
if enough, tough men like you are trying
hard to be, lie awake at night
and think of them, and fight and kill
others trapped like you – to keep them free.

You wanted once so much to live!

But now you say – For them – what’s meant to be…
for them and for theirs – things undone – forgive?
I fought for things enduring. Oh, remember me!

Courage is everything…Check out the outstanding Kapiti Independent News

The excellent Kapiti Independent News puts most other newspapers to shame. No wonder that most media are now so despised.

Without courage, what is left? And what has happened to us as a country that, as formerly happened in the USSR,  much-needed debate is now suppressed, and to speak the truth on important issues now takes an act of courage?

The Kapiti Independent News deserves to be acclaimed by all of us. It stands head and shoulders above our mainstream newspapers right across the country  – earning respect by its support of debate on the now damaging issues of racial preference and discrimination.This Kapiti newspaper’s support of the fine article by courageous Bud Codger brings to mind the phrase  – redeeming the times.  Congratulations to all involved. And don’t miss the below.

http://kapitiindependentnews.net.nz/racism-in-the-universities/#more-63053

Judging from my own experiences in relation to my local newspaper, I’d agree it’s no wonder that, in the public mind, it’s been established that the least-trusted group of individuals in any occupation are  journalists, “ranked below MPs, even, the second least trusted, and behind local council members, lawyers and civil servants, who are all below the half-way mark in a survey of public trust and confidence. ”

That’s no surprise to so many New Zealanders concerned about the directions in which this country is heading, but finding it almost impossible to be able to take part in that underpinning of democracy, public debate, using the forum of letters to the editor. I’m not alone in the long campaign I’ve been waging to challenge the Nelson Mail  in relation to its disgraceful practice of suppressing letters to the editor from well-respected commentators – if the opinions, even the facts that they express, obviously irritate the letters editor – or/and even the actual editor.

My persistent objection to the letters of one highly qualified commentator on treaty issues being ignored has at last seen his letters begin to appear – possibly because I included, in my recent complaint to the Press Council, the constant suppression of his excellent letters, and,  even of a well substantiated article pointing out that so-called facts invoked by two local activists  in relation to  Maori-related historical issues could indeed be challenged. Naturally, he was denied publication. Moreover, invited to give an address  to the Nelson Institute,  he found this recently cancelled, when the Institute, the Nelson City Council and the public library were asked to cancel his address – with the implied threat that there would be public disruption – possibly violence –  “a health and safety issue” – if he was allowed to speak. And I’m referring here to an excellent historian, respected in his field.

Tiring of the constant  suppression of my own letters, challenging left-wing, quite wrong or troubling “facts” presented in the Nelson Mail  (I would write no more than about four a year – given so  much already to juggle – and in particular where others had not highlighted an important issue) I finally submitted a complaint to the Press Council  about the Mail’s suppression of these.

My expectation of support from this body is pretty minimal. Our institutions all over the country are now largely dominated by the Politically Correct, and I recognize from my own time as an independent columnist and commentator on current affairs for the Dominion, and elsewhere, two or three familiar names on the Press Council.

However, one of the facts we need to take on board as individuals in this country, concerned about its very worrying directions, is that it is not good enough to fold up under pressure – or to simply be a pushover (in a friend’s words) – when confronted  by any form of bullying. On the contrary, it is important to make things as difficult as possible for those misusing positions of power.  And this is exactly what too many of today’s journalists are doing – pushing their markedly ” liberal” or radicalized points of view on the public – and then denying the opportunity for public debate.

It wasn’t always the case.  C. P. Scott, the long-standing editor of the Manchester Guardian, summed up the professional duty of a journalist, arguing that the “primary office” of a newspaper is accurate news reporting, saying “comment is free, but facts are sacred“.

Once, when journalism had a code of ethics, reporters would be pulled up short when their personal opinions took precedence over the facts. I recall some fine editors or features editors whom it was a pleasure to know. However, training journalists on an actual paper under the eye of experienced editors gave way to an utterly unnecessary three-year (and more) journalism courses where today’s often highly opinionated and self-regarding editors and reporters learned that their inculcated left-wing and  PC views were to be inflicted on the readers – and that they are free to push their too often half baked opinions – at the expense of the facts.

As usual the Nelson Mail is now holding back my letter in support of historian Bruce Moon.  I very much doubt if the editor has any intention of publishing it, and if this is the case, I will let readers judge for themselves by producing in this journal the letters which obviously offended the tender sense of susceptibilities of editorial staff.

Once more into the breach, dear friends …
