More than one way to ruin a country

The 100 Days – Claiming Back New Zealandwww.100days.co.nz


There can be no doubt at all that New Zealand, once at least an almost-democracy, is now under attack.

Cui bono? To whose benefit?  Or, Who profits by this…? a phrase used by Cicero at a time when the collapse of the Roman Republic was imminent, is one we, too, should be asking in relation to what is happening to this country. 

The signs that our own democracy is facing a virtual collapse are all around us – a claim that may sound exaggerated until we look at the indisputably racist, anti-democratic agenda that the Labour coalition, under the far-Left Ardern, is imposing on the country.

Similarly with John Key, described as “the smiling assassin” by those who worked  closely with him before he returned to New Zealand,  and who also appeared to think that his personal popularity would enable him  to get rid of  our  flag’s Union Jack –  a  reminder of our rich cultural heritage – Ardern is  confident of her  own and her government’s  popularity. She has gone even further, wanting to get rid of our country’s internationally-recognised name.  Why?

A leaked email revealing a directive sent down from her office recently, in relation to dumped Covid-19 documents, has this over-authoritarian Prime Minister telling her ministers not to give interviews, stating that “the government has no need to respond because of its overwhelming public support”.

 If this support continues, then we have lost this country, not only as a quasi-democracy.  We know that freedom of speech is essential to any democracy.  Yet her proposed legislation further attacking the right of individuals to freedom of speech – with extraordinary penalties lined up to intimidate the population – is part of any far-Left government’s agenda.  

The intent of He Puapua, to deliberately promote separatism and so divide the country, citizens against citizens, comes straight from the Communist Manifesto, with its attack on community integration. Her push to change the name of the country and attempt to make government documents less intelligible, sprinkled with Maori, or re-invented Maori  terminology –  replacing our most important national and international language   – is not part of her be-kind-to-one another exhortations.

 It is in fact highly discourteous, given that only an estimated 4% of New Zealanders speak today’s  teo reo – by no means the original Maori language, but one now largely reinvented,  similarly to Esperanto, but without the latter’s original intent to enable all the peoples of the world to speak a common language. It is English which has become the most important language internationally. Today’s largely reinvented Maori is spoken nowhere else, and is an anachronistic attempt to reinvent a language which has become largely irrelevant, even if understandably of historical importance to those of Maori descent.

However, the allocating of scores of millions of taxpayers’ dollars to attempt to inflict this largely irrelevant and inauthentic reinvention of the original Maori upon schoolchildren, their teachers and other institutions, diverts much-needed funding from essential areas such as health related issues. For example, it is to the government’s shame that Starship, our leading Children’s Hospital, is so  cash-strapped that it has to appeal to the public for funds… while scores of millions of dollars are continually diverted to wastefully promote what is no longer an authentic language.

Moreover, far more important languages need prioritising, given that te reo is not spoken in any other country in the world, and that New Zealand children would benefit far more from learning a language of genuine use to them overseas. Moreover, to expect new immigrants, speaking their own language  – and needing to become fluent in English – to spend precious time by being required to also take on the burden of this reinvented language, is unconscionable.

There is an urgent need to replace the now Marxist Ministry of Education with a system removed from the dominance, politicised decisions and dumbing down of the Left, and replace it with a body answerable to the needs of children and their parents.
Moreover, when everybody speaks English, this crosses boundaries of race and cultural values, promoting a sense of national cohesion.

A contributing factor to this social cohesiveness is the shared history of our traditional Western values – passed down to both those of European and part-Maori descent – but with the latter discouraged from celebrating this highly important part of their heritage. Again, one has to ask why…

This has not been by accident,  but as part of the attack on our national cohesion which too many New Zealanders have not yet recognised – having fallen into the trap of being wrongly persuaded that the Treaty of Waitangi set up a partnership between Maori and the Crown – not only one that never happened, but that in fact was impossible. Yet this canard is being skilfully promulgated to persuade the gullible that co-governance of New Zealand is justified. Moreover, it is not just co–governance which is envisaged, but one where superior rights are to be given to those with some percentage of Maori ancestry, entitled to claim extra political power and money as a chosen people.

It is good to see so many now opposing this deliberate promotion of racial divisiveness.  But what that it is being deliberately done needs to be far more fully recognised.

There have been warnings throughout history that a country divided against itself cannot stand. We all need to understand that the former peace and harmony of this  country is not only under attack by divisive pressure groups with prioritised access to government  – but is also supported by politicians with an agenda far from that of a cohesive society.
Presiding over all this social unrest is today’s ever-smiling Prime Minister,  seemingly intent on inflicting her own agenda decisions on us all. The writing is in fact on the wall,  with the enemy already within the gates.

But when more New Zealanders begin to at last ask this crucial question, Cui bono?  – the answer will become more obvious. And for those willing to fight for the country for which so many of our forebears  gave their lives, the very practicable way back can be found at www.100days.co.nz

Jacinda Ardern must be very pleased with herself

Should we in this country – known to the world as  New Zealand – not Aotearoa – be able to expect that debate on the important issues of the day should be readily available, open and transparent?

Or is it fine that our mainstream media have been paid to act as the mouthpiece of a far-Left government?

https://www.spectator.com.au/2021/09/the-bribing-of-the-new-zealand-media/

There is only one possible answer, if we are to consider ourselves a democracy – that freedom of the press is essential.

We have lost it, because our mainstream media have sold the country out. We cannot afford to be anything but very clear about what is actually happening to us.

Owning the press is an important part of any government’s plan to propagandise, and eventually control the population. Athough it has no place in a democracy,  gagging the press, or buying its complicity, is one of the first and most important moves of any totalitarian government –  as in the former USSR, in China, North Korea –  or wherever an all-controlling government lays down what is, and what is not, desirable for people to read.

However, our main media outlets have accepted what are basically government bribes, amounting to ongoing millions of dollars – provided they agree to not challenge the Ardern government in relation to its factually wrong claims – such as that the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi established a legal partnership – or indeed any kind of partnership – between Maori and the Crown.

Not only would this have been impossible, it is totally untrue. Yet, when Ardern, who parrots this claim, was asked in a personal email by the former leader of the National Party and Governor of the Reserve Bank,  Don Brash, to produce the evidence that this is the case – she did what she is very good at – she dodged replying.

We are very aware that the PM does not answer questions to which she dislikes the answer. Her racist blueprint for establishing apartheid in this country, and incredibly enough, supposed co-governance by a small minority only of radicalised part-Maori – apparently obsessed about one part only of their genetic inheritance – is a recipe for sowing widespread divisiveness and instability. It beggars belief that she simply doesn’t have enough intelligence to appreciate this.

She must also be well aware that as a result of the signing of the treaty, all New Zealanders, no matter what their racial background, became subjects of the Crown with equal protection, rights and responsibilities.  The dreamworld of ethnic superiority in which some academics apparently find themselves does not alter actual facts:  in Captain William Hobson’s words – He iwi tahi tatou – We are one people.

This is apparent not a concept that appeals to Miss Arden.  Fostering dissent among New Zealanders, the government aims to remove from local people the control of their own assets, such as water – with the view of giving the same extremist part-Maori activists superior rights over its ownership.  Other part-Maori expressing concern about this move, and what it will do to the country and the inevitable resentment that will follow, are simply ignored. After all, as activist, Titewhai Harawira reminded her followers, “The squeaky wheel gets the most grease…” Noisy, even badgering minorities can hold a majority to ransom.

Ardern uses the canard of the signing of the treaty establishing a partnership as justification for the apparent aim of co-governance laid out in the originally heavily redacted He Puapua – which previously claimed she had not even read.

But what of media complicity?  The list is long, but all the requirements laid upon various institutions to conform to receive their funding have one thing in common – they must adhere to race-backed conditions such as “cultural competency” courses which will produce advocacy journalism – ongoing attempts to “educate” the public.

We are in fact losing this country because of  a government which is not only attempting to essentially bribe the media to toe this far-Left  government’s line – but is  also attempting, through its insidious and intimidating proposals to reform our “hate speech “laws – to restrict what we say – with extraordinarily harsh penalties dangled over our heads.

Although that sleeping giant the public is at last beginning to stir,   it is very late in the day for many New Zealanders to wake up to the fact this is not government by the people for the people – this is a régime closer to that of a totalitarian one stretching its  tentacles over the whole country.

Serfs in our own country… ruled by political party patsies?

Check out this link below.


We have indeed reached a shocking time with New Zealanders now experiencing a virtually dictatorial government inflicting its agenda on the country. In more even than socio-economic areas, enormous damage is being done because of it.

Most people by now, even many formerly gushing about the wonderful Jacinda Ardern, have taken off their blinkers.

Most New Zealanders long thought we had a democracy – even just a representative one, where, supposedly, electorate MPs, for whom a majority voted at the time, would take the wishes of their constituents with them to Wellington.  It wasn’t much – we all knew of the horse-trading behind the scenes where too often the views of the majority of New Zealanders were sidelined.

But now we don’t even have a pretence of representative democracy.

We lost that last pretence when the tattooed minister, Nanaia  Mahuta  – (is she making a statement?)  – moved swiftly to crush New Zealanders’ ability, nationwide,  to prevent their local councils adopting racist Maori wards in local body electorates. Our rights to mount referenda were simply speedily taken away.

How many other Western countries would put up with such an outrageous move?

Whether Mahuta  was prompted to do so by her coalition ruler, or whether she was acting on her own initiative,  is irrelevant – there is no doubt of Ardern’s full backing.

In fact we have a virtual autocracy – government by decree with the pretence only of consultation – as with the ridiculous and duplicitous Three Waters cartoons on television – an insult to the intelligence of the country – designed to make us compliant about basically handing over our water rights to tribal control – with local councils  first bribed into acquiescence.

Given our rapidly worsening situation,  it is obvious that as a priority, we now need an urgent reform of our political system,  as the above Spectator article illustrates. At the moment, we are ruled by political party patsies dominated by agenda-driven party leaders  – as we saw, too,  under “the smiling assassin”, former National leader John Key, also recognised as completely dominating his party.

In addition, we have highly important decisions made by members of Parliament,  upgraded to ministerial ranking, whom we never even elected to parliament – but who gained their seats though List ranking. We are then virtually at the mercy of whatever they decree – as with the unacceptable foreshore and seabed claims.

We not only could be doing much better?  We must. And the simplest way to do so is by a provision which the clever Swiss fought  to gain for themselves.

Check out the website at the bottom of this Spectator article, and go to How it Works.
https://www.spectator.com.au/2021/08/why-are-we-ruled-by-political-party-patsies-as-well-as-unelected-mp

The politicians won’t like it.  Those media in politicians’ pockets won’t like it. But our children will thank us for it.

There are no catches to this:  it really is very simple.

We need enough of us to endorse the 100 Days proposal to reach a tipping point of New Zealanders insisting to our politicians that we are going to have this provision  – and that they will get no electorate, nor List votes –  unless they support us.

We need financial support to be able to reach as many New Zealanders as possible.

We need you all to help to tell others.

If you can do both, you are doubly valuable – and we owe you. Thank you… See the DONATIONS page www.100days.co.nz

Canadian Man Jailed After ‘Misgendering’ His Daughter

by Alana Mastrangelo

18 Mar 2021

https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2021/03/18/canadian-man-jailed-after-misgendering-his-daughter/

A Canadian father has been arrested for “misgendering” his own 14-year-old child by calling her his “daughter,” and referring to her with the pronouns “she” and “her.”

Robert Hoogland — the father of a 14-year-old biological female who identifies as transgender and prefers male pronouns — was found in contempt of court and jailed on Tuesday after repeatedly calling his child his “daughter,” despite the court forbidding it, according to a report by the Post Millennial.

The Attorney General of British Columbia reportedly issued a warrant for his arrest for contempt.

Hoogland is opposed to his teenage daughter going through transgender-related medical procedures, and has repeatedly expressed his opposition in the hopes of saving his child from irreversible damage.

The Canadian medical system, the legal system, and the child’s mother, however, have gone forward with the “social and medical transition” of Hoogland’s daughter, the report adds.

In December of last year, Hoogland was mandated by British Columbia Supreme Court Justice Francesca Marzari to cooperate in the “transitioning” of his daughter’s sex, and was told not to refer to her as female again.

Hoogland had previously discovered that his daughter’s school had been showing her sexual and gender identity education materials known as “SOGI 123,” which the report referred to as transgender “propaganda videos.”

By the 7th grade, the school had changed his daughter’s name in the yearbook without telling her parents, and “socially transitioned” her with the input of gender ideologue psychologist Wallace Wong, who advised the pubescent child to take testosterone.

The report adds that Wong referred Hoogland’s daughter to the endocrinology unit at the local hospital, and that a “treatment” plan was put into action on her first visit.

“Here I am, sitting there as a parent, watching a perfectly healthy child be destroyed, and there’s nothing I can do but sit on the sideline — and according to Justice Boden at the time, cheer it on,” Hoogland said in an interview last year. “I can only affirm, or get thrown in jail.”

Justice Boden of the British Columbia Supreme Court had reportedly declared that Hoogland and his wife had to affirm their daughter’s new gender identity. Hoogland was told that if he tried to dissuade his daughter or refer to her as a female, then he would be considered guilty of “family violence.”

After the ruling, Hoogland gave an interview to the Federalist, in which he lamented the situation, and pointed out that his daughter is biologically female.

After that, Justice Marzari reportedly signed a “protection order” authorizing the police to arrest Hoogland if he were to again be caught referring to his daughter as female, or with female pronouns.

Hoogland said that the Marzari ruling even stated that he was allowed to “think thoughts” that were contrary to the Boden ruling.

“The court was gracious enough to say that they could not police my thoughts,” Hoogland said.

In January of last year, the highest court in British Columbia reportedly declared that the child should continue taking testosterone, and imposed a “conduct order” on Hoogland, mandating that he continue referring to his daughter by male pronouns.

“They’ve now created a delusion, and they’re forcing parents, like myself, to live in this delusion,” Hoogland said last year. “And then what happens when the bubble explodes, and the delusion ends?”

“She can never go back to being a girl,” he added. “I mean, she’ll always be a girl, but she’ll never go back to being a girl in a healthy body that she should have had — she won’t be able to have children, she won’t have a family. These kids don’t understand what this stuff means.”

An estimation of more than 80 percent of children with gender dysphoria will end up desisting from their belief that they are the opposite sex once puberty is over.

“What kid who’s 13 is thinking about a family and having children? Not many,” Hoogland continued. “What kind of father would I be if, let’s say in five, ten years, my daughter is de-transitioning, and she turns to me and says — ‘Why did none of you do anything to stop this? I was a child. None of you stuck your neck out for me back then.’”

“When my daughter asks me that question, I’ll say, ‘I did everything that I possibly could,” he added.

Are the Ardernistas and Greens living on Planet Stupid?

https://www.spectator.com.au/2020/10/the-captain-and-the-kings-depart/

Are the Ardernistas and Greens living on Planet Stupid?

“The Captains and the Kings depart…”

When the very fine artist, critic and columnist Giles Auty died recently in Australia, viewing with regret what had happened to his adopted country – and aware that we in New Zealand are in even worse straits – we lost one of those very few still standing to fight the corruption of these times. How have ignorance and stupidity – with or without deviousness – become a characteristic disease now in so many Western democracies?

Tragedy or comedy? It was impossible not to smile when recently listening to an LBC announcer in Britain recounting with incredulity the mindless behaviour of people there.  Almost lost for words, trying to understand what was taking place, he asked if they were living on Planet Stupid?  Equally worriedly, he pointed out that they actually have the vote…

Living on Planet Stupid? This phase really sums the question so many New Zealanders have been asking for so long about more than a few of our politicians – in particular with regard to the global warming con, which Miss Ardern, the basically Marxist Greens and too many shockingly lazy MPs have swallowed,  line and sinker.

Or have they? Given the challenge to the whole global warming hysteria, not only by well-informed scientists, but those apologising for having bought into it in the first place, we would be foolish to dismiss the Left’s – and indeed the Right’s – continued, culpable buy-in of this nonsense. What we need to remind ourselves is that promoting global warming alarmism has given governments the best of all opportunities to tax every single area of our economy  – all industries, business, farming, development, transport, fuel…the campaign against the use of coal, the search for oil…Every individual New Zealander  is  being impoverished through increased taxation – costs past on to us –  because of what is now recognised to have been a hugely exaggerated  – in fact basically non-existent threat  – to enrich the governments coffers.

What is particularly reprehensible is that even if the release of CO2 –  this important gas, but minimally represented in the atmosphere –  was drastically reduced in this country – it wouldn’t make one whit of difference to reducing global warming. Why are we being conned into politically imposed virtuousness, in no way at all reducing supposed global warming – while energy-hungry China and India are firing up more and more coal stations?  Much smarter than this country, the US has withdrawn from the Paris Agreement, one in a line of treaties imposed by activists on the Left promoting alarmist propaganda. Given all the recent evidence challenging this,  it’s high time for us to stand up to our politicians and demand an end to their lucrative tax gathering scam – because scam it basically is. Tell Jacinda – and tell James Shaw…

Another important issue, pushed by the usual suspects, is the attempt to try to rename this country Aotearoa – which was never even its Maori name. No matter, we are being manipulated by continuing pressure on politicians  – and the only-too compliant, mischief-making and leftist media. It is yet another push from the Maori Supremacy movement, relying on the goodwill or laziness of New Zealanders to give up opposing it. A policy of appeasement? However, we should know just from history that appeasement never works:  the demand increases – as has been happening continually with those from very few, but vocal, culturally bullying part- Maori extremists – who appear to have considerable ego problems. Although a distinct minority, their demands never stop. However, now great poetry has been removed from the school curriculum, the important reminder in Rudyard Kipling’s “Dane-geld” has been largely lost.

”And that is called paying the Dane-geld;
But we’ve proved it again and again,
That if once you have paid him the Dane-geld
You never get rid of the Dane”..

A recent poll showed the majority of this country voting 70 to 30% against this radicalized, extremist push. However, under the guise of being nice to those with a chip on their shoulder, too many politicians, and virtue-signalling media commentators and business managers are joining in the attack on our country’s name – New Zealand.

This is all part of a deliberately orchestrated movement to gain more and more territory, inch by inch, for radicalised Maori – none of whom in fact are predominantly Maori at all, and who determinedly ignore the immense benefits that the introduction of civilisation brought to this country.  It is not to their credit that they are dishonest enough to ignore and even disrespect their majority, non-Maori forebears.

It’s time to boycott Aotearoa-named companies and products that obligingly appease these radicals – and to point out that is culturally insensitive to not be addressed in the language everyone must understand – English – our important national and international language. Moreover, why should immigrants to this country – those from Asia, Europe, India, Cambodia,  the Philippines, etc. already with their own primary language,  be forced to compulsorily learn the newly invented, largely completely inauthentic “Maori” – as a result of what is basically cultural bullying? Competence in English is their and our prime need. Of course.

We are more than at the crossroads down the blind alleys of the racial, anti-white cultural bullying and the disproved nonsense of global warming.

It is that Miss Ardern is really so very ignorant? Or are there just so many opportunities for increased taxation and control by going along with this canard, Jacinda? Too many ignorant and compliant politicians have turned this country into an intellectual wasteland. All part of course, of the attack on our productive industries – and the destroying of our economy.

GK Chesterton pointed out that, “A tired democracy becomes a dictatorship.” And under Miss Ardern’s edicts and the Green party’s destructive agenda, this is arguably where are heading – a virtual dictatorship – control by a very few…

Yet it has never been easier to protest – and even a few dozen individuals  – (it is always the individuals who count) – contacting Parliament – the readily available phone number is 04 817 9999 – and asking to be put forward   to the office of the leader,  or to any member of a political party, means that one can state one’s views – in support of – or against any stance – or proposed legislation.

What can you/we as an individual(s) be waiting for? In this critical lead-up to the election, listening to voters and soliciting their support is very important to all politicians. They are doing so. But are they only hearing from the extremists? As so very often…

We should not be leaving the fight against any ill-tide of the times to the great-hearted fighters like Giles Auty. Ultimately we are, and will be, judged on what we do – and what we omit to do.

Why not ring 04 817 9999   – or email Parliament…Or?.. 

What are you doing to help? And well done indeed if you are J

Stop the damaging lockdowns, Jacinda. Bill Muehlenberg is right…

Stop the damaging lockdowns, Jacinda. Bill Muehlenberg is right…

https://billmuehlenberg.com/2020/09/10/the-case-against-lockdowns-and-police-states/

The evidence worldwide is that lockdowns have caused more damage to the countries that implemented them than was ever originally envisaged. The number of deaths from serious medical conditions that were brushed aside as lockdowns were prioritised will probably have cost us more deaths than those from Covid-19 – now recognised  to be on a par with other formerly damaging epidemics, such as the Hong-Kong or Spanish flu.

Jacinda Ardern’s edicts have been over-reliant upon media-feted medical “experts” with a very narrow perspective on the costs of these highly damaging shutdowns of the country to people’s lives,  businesses, health, and even hopes and dreams. The consequences are with us in the numbers of suicides – and in those now left facing financial despair as Labour’s controversial, anti-business coalition plunges us into an abyss of financial debt  -and promises more and more of the same, in a vote-buying pre-election spree.

Give this government’s  pre-coronavirus attack on our productive industries such as oil and gas exploration, the evidence is that we are now being further damaged by a government with an overwhelming socialist agenda. And the extraordinary,  virtually totalitarian controls that have been placed upon our democracy  and upon individuals’ actions are highly ominous.

What has been made very obvious with Ardern’s government, in partnership with the Ministry of Health, is not only the ongoing blunders that have been made along the way –  and the constant excuses we have been subjected to with regard to the lack of much-needed testing for border controls,  in our  state of total unpreparedness – is the lack of competence the country should have been able to rely upon.

This, is well as the pattern of attack by highly dangerous viruses over recent years should have given due warning that it was time for contingency preparations to have been made and ready. With one or two honourable exceptions,  the medical “experts” seem to have also missed the boat in this area.

Add these factors to the centre-staging Jacinda Ardern’s overwhelming conviction of rightness – and it’s time for New Zealanders to say, as so many already are –  that they have had enough..

 From two typically generous Australians – in contrast  to our literary mafia

From two  typically generous Australians – the contrast to our literary mafia in this country?

https://ncc.org.au/newsweekly/music-cinema-books/problems-across-the-tasman-similar-to-our-own/

So-called ordinary New Zealanders are basically decent, generous people, but our literary bully-boys and- girls in this small country where well-heeled pressure groups rule the roost are really quite vicious. And as poor Charlotte Dawson found to her cost, the small world of self-regarding  media “celebrities” has also become so indoctrinated in left-wing propaganda that –  in spite of Stuff newspaper’s ludicrous claims –  fair, objective reporting and competent analysis of the issues facing us today is largely non-existent in our mainstream media.

With my enthusiastically received books for children long blacklisted by the rabid Left (as told to my distributor) because my then Dominion columns  expressed considerable concern about the takeover of education – and the exaggeration of so many treaty claims –  my timely title – The “100 Days – Claiming Back New Zealand…what has gone wrong and how we can control our politicians”  was of course boycotted by reviewers.   ( I can think of one highly antagonistic and competitive left-wing writer of basically chick-lit, who has managed to publish a list of all the children’s writers in this country, well, not quite all…This,  in spite of “The Mora Stone” being  included in the Children’s Literature Foundation of New Zealand nominations for the top ten Notable Senior Fiction in its year and in the initial list of nominees for the prestigious international Fantasy Award for Children’s Literature in the US Mythopoeic Awards for Children’s Literature. It was listed on a Yahoo site by another reviewer.as one of her top five all-time historical fantasies.

https://www.amybrooke.co.nz/books/intermediate-and-young-adults/the-mora-stone/

However, the Left apparently just don’t happen to keep up with things…especially when their ideology is challenged…

I can think of a handful of really fine New Zealanders indefatigably fighting to win this country back from its basically Marxist takeover of all our institutions. Among those contributing to the latter is Jacinda Ardern, with her radicalized, socialist determination to inflict her own extremist agenda on what was once a  far happier country. Her wish to basically make it easier to have more babies killed before birth also has Miss Ardern quite shockingly voting against allowing  doctors to supply medical help to any aborted child left to die – which goes against  the grain,  as far as New Zealanders are concerned.

And what about Ardern’s push  to have highly worrying euthanasia legislation inflicted on the country? Or her party’s  favoring of the opening of Pandora’s box with “liberal” legislation promoting the increasing use of  recreational cannabis (because, of course, this is what it will do – with all its detrimental effects on health and safety). Again, this is typical of so many of the shortfalls in thinking of  those pushing their own barrow…

Where is there any acknowledgement from this apparently ignorant government of the fact that Sweden decriminalized cannabis use in the 60s, but after 20 years, made it illegal again, in the 80s? 

For no  reason at all?

Why do our politicians never learn? Why was John Key’s government foolish enough to allow a (former?) Communist spymaster  to be given a list ranking as a national MP –  and even to refuse to expel him when they learned that he had concealed this (i.e. basically falsified) in  his CV). What has been behind the National Party’s too cosy cuddling up to Communist Chinese business interests in this country – to the detriment of New Zealanders as a whole? Yet there have long been warnings of China’s determination to infiltrate and dominate the West, buying up land, businesses  and strategic assets, and influencing governments’ policies by whatever means possible, including spying.  Key himself is on record as praising the leadership of Xi Jinping,  tyrannically presiding over a country where the punishing, imprisoning and torturing of citizens  – including, horrifically, removing the vital organs of dissidents while alive to sell to those seeking transplants  – has become part of  a pattern of horror being woven all over this unfortunate country.

It is good, therefore,  to see the rise of the New Conservative Party with new faces and policies which will resonate with majority New Zealanders, particularly those respecting the foundation values on which this  country was built. Given the decline in New Zealand First’s following, in particular on Winston Peter’s ill-advised, last-minute and unheralded support for the UN’s global migration pact – never  put to the country to ratify  –  the New Conservatives are in a strong position to cross the 5% threshold, particularly given growing recognition of the Green Party’s policies as extremist, basically anti-productive and destructive to the prosperity of this country.

It was interesting then, to read this generous Australian review of my  100 Days,  Claiming Back New Zealand…. book, focusing on the one vital provision that the clever Swiss people wrested from their own government to ensure that it is the people themselves – referred to as “sovereign”  – who are able to make the decisions concerning the future of their own country – rather than the politicians.

Two fine writers are involved here – Paul Collits – who tells of his own experiences while living and working in New Zealand –  and Peter Kelleher, editor of the excellent Australian News Weekly, supplying the kind of incisive commentary and analysis of events in this part of the world which is very much lacking in New Zealand. For this  reason alone, New Weekly deserves the support of more New Zealanders. https://ncc.org.au/newsweekly/ 

Why is it than in this country we produce nothing now to fill the gap left by Ian Wishart’s INVESTIGATE – when our neighbours can produce other fine Australia publications such as the UK/Australian Spectator, edited by Rowan Dean, with articles from exceptional writers such as Giles Auty, James Allan, and others – as well as Quadrant and the IPA Review?

With some wonderful exceptions, I have routinely found Australians  on the whole, far more generous than Kiwis writing in these and other areas. And our annual Summer Sounds Symposium was fortunate enough to attract many fine speakers from across the Tasman – including the late Hal Colebatch, Keith Windschuttle, David Greagg (Wizard Dafydd), Patrick Morgan, Warren Reed (with his prescient, 1995 book about Chinese Spying activities, treachery and secrecy already within Australian bureaucracies),   Joseph Poprzeczny, John Ballantyne, Peter Westmore, Paul Monk, David Flint and others making outstanding contributions.

The long-term outcome of these symposia was the thinking that underpins both the book reviewed here by Paul Collits,  and our movement to claim back this country  – www.100days.co.nz and  on Facebook’s https://www.facebook.com/100daystodemocracy?ref=br_tf

We need the knowledge of what as actually been happening  to reach more New Zealanders, long deprived of anything approaching a quality education in our dumbed-down state schools, where, as part of the whole Marxist agenda,  even the teaching of real history has been withdrawn, replaced with its reinvention by activists. And part of their agenda is their stealth movement to rename this country.

They will win – if not enough New Zealanders care enough to fight back. And we should remember that everything, ultimately, depends upon the individual…

Tross Publishing- those New Zealanders redeeming our times

Tross Publishing – we owe those New Zealanders redeeming our times

https://trosspublishing.co.nz/ 

I have felt guilty for some time about being unable to do justice to the excellent, highly  relevant books which John McLean, publisher of Tross Books, manages to produce, putting our largely leftwing, mainstream publishers to shame. His tireless campaign has embraced publishing well-researched writers addressing to the truth of issues about the actual facts, rather than media and government-supported propaganda,  in relation to the history of this country.

This is vital knowledge, given the long taken-over of our educational institutions – including the Ministry of Education – by those who initially openly boasted about being neo-Marxists when I reviewed their books for the Christchurch Press in the 1980s onwards.  However, they have long tunnelled underground, while we New Zealanders have been cushioned by our geographical isolation from the constant threat of invasion, both external and now internal, that Britain and European countries have had to face throughout the centuries. This,  and that the fact that the teaching of history has been so long deliberately withheld from the school curriculum by this same ministry,  means that New Zealanders as a whole are largely ignorant and complacent about the threat that communism, and indeed socialism,  poses to any democratic country. The silly rebuttal to those writing to raise awareness of the white-anting of this country was often that they were imagining “Reds under the beds” – a clever move from the far Left, as ridicule is a strong weapon when attacking those trying to urgently bring home the truth of issues.

However, I also remember the riposte given by a Catholic trade union leader, well aware of the infiltration taking place, to the effect that it wasn’t just a case of  “Reds under the beds” – but that  they were actually sitting up in bed and having breakfast brought in. Metaphorically speaking, he was right.

Since the demise of INVESTIGATE  magazine, produced by  Ian Wishart, we have had no contemporary journal providing much-needed analysis of the relentless attack with which we are undoubtedly faced. We owe Ian a great deal for providing highly relevant, contemporary analysis of just what was, and is, happening in this country and abroad – including the mischief-making and venality of those whose political agenda has been very much against preserving New Zealand as a democracy. This of course includes the parliamentarians signed up to handing over our independence to a One World Government movement, aiming for an over- governing body with its own army to keep dissident nations in check. Like ours?

While Australia has the excellent The Spectator, News Weekly, Quadrant and The IPA Review, New Zealand now has no important  and relevant journals – with the exception of ELocal, the community-based magazine producing worthwhile articles.

We therefore are very much indebted to John McLean of Tross Publishing who consistently publishes books bringing home to New Zealanders what is actually happening – and has been happening in this country – and the threats posed to us, again internally and externally.

A quick check of the  Tross Publishing website shows, in “Free Speech Under Attack”, how this deliberate move to exercise more and more control over all our lives,  the most fundamental tenet of any democracy, is being used as a weapon against us all.   In “The Jaws of the Dragon” and “China, Lied, Thousands Died”: The origins and spread of Covid-19”, Ron Usher examines the very real threat  China poses to the free world, about which our politicians have either inexcusably  slow to recognise – or culpably ignorant…or worse.

And what of the fact that New Zealand inexcusably keeps dropping the deadly poison 1080 – with its horrific effect on animals and birds indiscriminately dying as a result… while the government keeps remarkably quiet about the fact that it profits from its 90% ownership of the factories continuing to selling this product – with government ministers represented on the board! “The Quiet Forest: the case against Aerial 1080,” by Fiona M.F McQueen looks to be vital reading for those who have been assured of the safety of this product.

Another title that might well be read by every concerned New Zealander and by every politician is “24 Years; The trials of Allan Titford” detailing the extraordinary custodial sentence handed out to Allan Titford – a sentence greater than that given for  murder,   where parole is a possibility  after 10 years – or any other serious charge. This book examines the charges levelled against Titford, and the possible corruption involved. The extraordinary sentence handed out to this man, originally apparently as a result of what was private property being targeted with apparently opportunistic claims by local Maoris, shocked many, given conflicting evidence. 

With too many titles to list here, I can only recommend that readers themselves access  Tross Publishing where these and other such timely  books as Andy Oakley’s “Once We Were One: The Fraud of Modern Separatism”, One Treaty, One Nation” “Twisting  the Treaty” put paid to the propaganda, and indeed actual lies, now being told about the “Treaty of Waitangi.”  Like so many other treaties of the past, for the sake of the future of this country, and of the vital concept of one law for all – there’s a very good case for arguing it should also be consigned to the dustbins of history.
