Important! We should learn from Sweden reversing legalising cannabis

 

Why doesn’t the government acknowledge Sweden reversed its laws liberalising cannabis? For 20 years, from the 60s onwards, Sweden had a thoroughly liberal policy regarding cannabis. But now?

Governments are supposed to respond to the wishes and directions of the people. But worldwide now,  politicians have deservedly never been in more disrepute, very largely for their determination to do no such thing.

New Zealand politicians, too, are a major part of what is wrong with this country, particularly in the area of bad decision-making.

Moreover, Jacinda Ardern,  dominating a party for which two-thirds of New Zealanders did not vote at the last election, is highly determined to have her own way.

This very determined politician, with her born-to-rule attitude, apparently has her Left-wing government continuing to work toward white-anting the important conservative underpinning of our once more stable society.

The folly of  proposals to legalise  cannabis matches the beginning of the attack on our elderly through the creaking-open door of euthanasia planning… following on the removal of more  of the already minimal protection for our unborn children.

And now we are falling into the trap that Sweden renounced after 20 years.

Our Western youth have always regarded Sweden as a liberal, indeed liberated society, but the folly of its politicians today has now turned it  into one of the most beleaguered  countries in Europe – thanks to its over-liberal immigration policies and the flood of Islamic entries into the country

Our politicians should have been informed enough to know that Sweden actually liberalised cannabis in the 1960s. Then, finding this a disastrous experiment,  with the usual unforeseen consequences, Sweden overturned this legislation in the 80s – and now has one of the strictest anti-cannabis policies in the world.

Why aren’t the media reminding us of this fact? Why isn’t Jacinda Ardern acknowledging this – so that the country can take part in this coming referendum on a far more informed basis?

Labour is costing the country a great deal . Equally worryingly, when such governments are thrown out because of public recognition of their destructive policies,  their opponents typically do very little to undo the damage that has been caused.


We should be learning from Sweden’s lesson. Their 20 year experiment was ended for good reason.

So why is a demonstrably inauthentic language being foisted off on all New Zealanders? Isn’t it time to stand up to the race-obsessed activism constantly draining off more and more multi millions of taxpayers’ money?

No wonder our hospitals and the health system in general, serving all New Zealanders, are so constantly cash-strapped.

Al Gore and a shocking “inconvenient truth.” The global warming hysteria.

Al Gore admits the the IPCC climate report was “torqued up” to get attention. In other words, they’ve been lying.

:Gore admits the the IPCC climate report was “torqued up” to get attention.:

What a handy choice of words – “torqued up.” But a lie  is a lie. And both Japanese and Danish scientists have recently delivered damning evidence that this whole global planet warmup has been a massive con – the evidence is simply not there – but fake news and compromised scientists warned  (or only too willing)  to keep their heads down have been very much part of the problem.

Meanwhile, both the New Zealand government and local councils all around the country have been backing the climate change emergency hysteria – ( although there is no emergency at all – and freeloading  Pacific islanders have been taking us to the cleaners.  The evidence is that the islands are not sinking. )

So why the princely salaries  with office staff and equipment now being given to individuals to to fight this local body “climate change emergency –   (as with the folly of the Nelson Mayor, Rachel Reese – photographed actually embracing  Extinction Rebellion members, a Marxist  group now gluing themselves to tunnels and walls around Britain in their attempts to create widespread disruption – and to bring down  our democratic institutions).

What is underpinning all this is the ability of central and local governments to keep raiding taxpayers’ and rate-payers ‘pockets, and constantly introduce more and more legislation to control the activities of New Zealanders – and to load every possible business with new compliance issues.

And guess who pays for all this…

It is all part of the demoralisation of New Zealanders as a whole. And it is quite wicked – particularly given the fact that even if we (and Australia) eliminated every single CO2 emission, it is widely acknowledged that this wouldn’t make a peck of difference to the atmosphere.

From the beginning, Al Gore’s film, forced on captive classes  throughout New Zealand schools  – contained information that was quite untrue. However he of course personally profited immensely. Called “An Inconvenient Truth” it  certainly departed from the truth – as where   judge found 10 pieces of misinformation used to propagandise  audiences – 10 “facts” which were simply not true  – or highly challengeable.

So a generation of children  – and indeed their teachers – have been thoroughly brainwashed. Count most of our MPs among these.

However, this issue has never been about the truth of things, has it?

As a correspondent rightly points out ” It’s pretty damning.  The Climate Emergency Cult and the Worship of High-Priestess Gaia-Greta is getting pretty bizarre….and the wholesale, full-scale indoctrination and mobilisation of children against adults.  Straight out of the Marxist playbook.”


Gore admits the the IPCC climate report was “torqued up” to get attention.

Former Vice President Al Gore: “The language that the IPCC used in presenting it was torqued up a little bit, appropriately – how [else] do they get the attention of policy-makers around the world?” Video follows.

Gore admission that the UN IPCC report was “torqued up” in order to “get the attention of policy-makers around the world” is just the latest in a long line of evidence that the UN climate panel is nothing more than “a purely political body posing as a scientific institution.”

PBS NEWSHOUR – ONE-ON-ONE – Broadcast: October 12, 2018 – (Gore’s quote begins at 1 min. 30 into video)

PBS host Judy Woodruff to Former Vice President Al Gore: “They are painting a much more alarming picture of what we face than we had previously known…”

Gore: “The language that the [UN] IPCC used in presenting it was torqued up a little bit, appropriately – how [else] do they get the attention of policy-makers around the world?”

h/t to Climate Depot

It’s simply more of this, pioneered by the late climate doomster Dr. Steven Schneider:

“On the one hand, as scientists we are ethically bound to the scientific method. On the other hand, we are not just scientists but human beings as well. To do that we need to get some broad based support, to capture the public’s imagination. That, of course, means getting loads of media coverage. So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements, and make little mention of any doubts we might have. Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest.”

What a crock of lies and and deception... interestingly the general public doesn’t even believe the global warming hysteria anyway – but it’s time individuals rang Parliament (04 817 9999),  chose whatever MPs and/pr  Leaders office they felt appropriate and objected to the con being inflicted on us.

We need to remember – that individuals are the most important of all – and that those who do nothing  are themselves well and truly part of the problem. 

Are you?

Soon to come – the findings of independent scientists challenging the whole   climate change hysteria.

Nelson Mayor’s abysmally un-critical embracing….

Check out this photo: Nelson Mayor’s abysmally un-critical embracing of this destructive, anarchistic and anti-Western group.

Nelson Mayor Rachel Reese hugged emotional members of Extinction Rebellion after the council voted to declare climate change an emergency.

https://www.stuff.co.nz/environment/climate-news/112774585/nelson-declares-climate-emergency

 See where  Stuart Basden, one of the founders of Extinction Rebellion whose members Mayor Rachel Reese so very foolishly recently embraced, set out its manifesto below…And it is those advocating his agenda whom Mayor Rachel Reese is supporting…Why?
https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/white-collar-eco-warriors-to-spread-chaos-swl273xdh   ***

This is what Nelson’s foolish Mayor and councillors have shockingly endorsed – The Marxist Extinction Rebellion group – now costing us all in yet more rises in rates – and loss of credibility. And almost incredibly,  Nelsonians now have to pay for an extremely highly paid individual “to manage climate change”.

Really? How? And all because of the sheer nonsense that we are facing a climate change “emergency”.

This arrogant move is being noted as a  huge departure from council’s annual plan and long-term plan. Without any public consultation, it involves raiding the port dividend.

Stuart Basden, 35, from Bristol, a co-founder {of Extinction Rebellion} was convicted of unlawful protests in May last year for blocking a tunnel into Heathrow by attaching himself to cars. he told the training day: ” By shutting down the streets we will force the government to negotiate with us, and hopefully they will cave in to our demands.”

As a reader comments: “Extinction rebellion really are the same old (censored) – but now mobilising the educated youth into nascent Green versions of the Red Guards.)

https://wattsupwiththat.com/2019/04/02/the-new-green-threat-extinction-rebellion/

“The plan is to replace the ”criminal” western political systems with a ”better democracy” designed by Extinction Rebellion in which e.g. voting is no longer needed (sortition is preferred instead). The practical post-revolution steps have also been thought out well in advance.”  ***

Extinction Rebellion isn’t about the climate. It’s about toppling Western governments. Fine by you, Rachel?

The gullibility of the  climate change cultists, including Jacinda  Ardern’s government  – seizing on yet more opportunities to tax us – let alone the shocking censorship by STUFF  – is costing us all.

The sheer folly of all this is obvious in the fact that even if New Zealand – and even both New Zealand and Australia!  – reduced every single CO2 emission –  it is acknowledged it wouldn’t make one peck of  difference to Earth’s climate.

So why all the hysteria? And what a massive con is being inflicted on us all. ..

Hats off to the councils which have refused this “climate change emergency” nonsense.

Apparently, no provision was made for any well-informed Nelsonians to debate or oppose the issue  when this costly decision was inflicted upon the Nelson public. Equally as culpably,  I understand one one councillor  quite shockingly turned off the microphone of a very experienced member of the public  – to prevent his being heard!

We need to vote them out at the next election.

In no way do I intend to marginalise or discredit the experience of people who have been labelled ‘insane’ by a normative system, nor who identify as being ‘insane’.

** “Climate Justice refers to the injustice that those who are affected first and worst by extreme weather events (the people in the poorer countries, the majority of whom live in the Global South) are not likely to be the ones who caused the climate emissions (the people who consume the most, including the pathologically wasteful cultures of Europe and Turtle Island (aka North America), and the rich who live/travel around the world).”Stuart Basden

Time to think again, councillors…

It’s high time to control our damaging political party leaders!

It’s high time to control our damaging political party leaders!

https://quadrant.org.au/opinion/qed/2019/05/the-hypocrisies-of-professional-leaders/

That political reform is needed here and elsewhere is more than obvious, and there is a crucial first step  which should now be taken in New Zealand  – and elsewhere. Look at the fiasco in Theresa May’s Britain alone…If we want to grow up as a people, we need to stop our dug-in Prime Ministers from basically dominating us all.

We have seen the damage done by tyrannical rulers – reflected both in the pages of history  – and constantly highlighted in today’s media.

But what about the fact that throughout the West those in democracies such as New Zealand are seeing a political class, dominated by party leaders with the bit between their teeth – virtually ruling their own parties – and us? Why are we letting this happen?

Although neither Jacinda Ardern’s Labour Party nor John Key’s previous National government attracted more than about 37% of New Zealanders voting for them, Ardern is now posturing as the virtual ruler of this country. She is acting as if she has mandate from the country at large which she certainly doesn’t have   – as with the ideologically-driven UN Compact On Global Migration now forced upon New Zealanders.

The same with the ever-smiling John Key   – who, as a political commentator noted at the time – virtually ruled National…with one MP giving the show away when he stated that when the leader told him to jump – he asked:  “How high?”

Leaders don’t like being opposed from within their own party, and although there were damaging policy issues under Key with they disagreed, none of them apparently had the integrity to say publicly say so.The threat of losing ministerial portfolios, the extra salary, the perks, privileges and special cars …seemingly counts more than representing one’s electorate –  or standing up for once principles. So the practice of kowtowing to the party leadership means a particularly determined leader such as Helen Clark or John Key can remain dominating a party and inflicting their own agenda on the country for several years. And we all pay.

Would Helen Clark ever have been able to destroy the combat wing of our Air Force, even claiming at the time that we lived “in a particularly benign environment” (palpably quite untrue – even before the Communist Chinese infiltration of our Pacific Island neighbours, with the Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea and East Timor among other hot spots of unrest) if she had not become  so dominating within the Labour Party?

More and more New Zealanders are becoming restive at the racially divisive policies being forced upon this country,   the quite deliberate reinvention of the very simple provisions of the Treaty of Waitangi; the canard of the so-called “partnership” supposedly established between the Crown and Maori as an ethnic entity  (rather than aggressive opposing tribal groupings.)  And, as always, “the squeaky wheel gets the most grease”. Our politicians, dominated by our vote-seeking party leaders, give most of their time and attention to those special interest groups clamouring for more and more funding, more and more antidemocratic liberal policies – no matter how socially divisive and damaging.

The most  ignored voice of New Zealanders is now the conservative voice – the voice of families – of those wanting to preserve the best of what made us as a country, underpinned by Christian principles  and the voice of conscience in our dealings – the voice of those unwilling to embrace damagingly new directions when these mean white-anting everything that once made us proud to be New Zealanders.

And dug-in leadership has become one of the most damaging of all today.

The concept of the leader as not only party leader but  as the ruler of the country – a mantle Ardern  seems to have drawn around her own shoulders
is arguably the first that needs modifying – if we are to begin to claim back this country.

Basically,  it means that it is high time we insisted our political parties set a term limit of one year only  for a current leader, at the end of which time he/she should be obliged to step down, while another steps up for a similar term.

During this time, the party leader should be regarded as basically simply a chairman of the board, there to ensure that proper debate is held within the party, and that where policy consensus is not reached, this should be acknowledged. While directions may be set by a majority vote,  issent should also be respected and recorded.

Switzerland, that  far smarter country,  the most successful and prosperous democracy in the world, with a cabinet of only seven individuals, has long been long aware of the danger of an entrenched and determined leader. So it allows its President a one-year term only. At the end of that time, he/she steps down, and another steps up – usually the previous Finance Minister –  and so on – in rotation.

Why are we not insisting on following the best established practices to work towards genuine democratic reform?

Politicians of course, do not want genuine democratic reform. But when enough people begin to realise that this can be actually achieved, given a tipping point of New Zealanders working towards this, then it will be an idea whose time has well and truly come. We can well argue that this is  now certainly the case.

Our country is in a mess with damaging and costly ideologies – such as – but not only – the anthropogenic global warming cult being forced upon New Zealanders. We are being increasingly taxed by both central and local government policy…although it is acknowledged by Australia, too – (a far larger contributing economy than ours) that suppressing every emission from the very minor CO2 contribution to the atmosphere methane contributes far more to the atmosphere) would have absolutely no effect on the climate!   

And yet, while China and India, and other major contributors continue to rack up pollution, we are forced to pay for what has become basically a con – the political pretence that taxing New Zealanders to change the climate will be of benefit!  But it benefits nobody except our government   – always keen to take more and more of our money, which it thinks it has more right to spend than we do.Time for NZ to come of age?  Then let’s start insisting Prime Ministers and party leaders move aside – after one year in power.

Power – so consistently misused…and we all pay. We can change this.   Come on board  to help!
