  1. Dishonesty abounds in the media who publish outright lies and Reporters who either have little ability to read and research the subject on which they write or are just out to be devious and mischief making.

    For example Denise Piper writes in the NZH this:

    “A significant hīkoi in defence of Te Tiriti o Waitangi is promising a fight against any planned changes to New Zealand’s founding document.”

    In her entire article, she does not say what the planned changes are to “New Zealand’s Founding Document” will be, she just makes a clearly dishonest statement, for as far as I am aware, there are no plans to change any claimed, “Founding Document” or it’s wording by this Government.

    She then goes to make more dishonest statements like this:

    “The hīkoi has the same theme as Waitangi’s commemorations – upholding the Treaty of Waitangi and the Declaration of Independence – and complements other protests against the coalition Government’s anti-Māori legislation.”

    Now, I am not a defender of this Government nor a total supporter, but no where have I seen, read or heard of, that this Government has introduced or passed any “anti-Maori Legislation”.

    The problem is, people will read this dishonest publishing and reporting and believe as fact what the NZH has published and what Denise Piper has written, to be true.

    Quite clearly Denise Piper and the disaffected people she has interviewed seem to be just looking for violence and disharmony within New Zealand. She states this:

    “As many as 10,000 people could be involved with the hīkoi, and Taipari could not promise it would not disrupt or turn violent due to the strength of conviction of protesters.”

    Well let’s see the conviction of those attending Waitangi next week. If it turns violent, then the whole dynamics of this country will change in an instant. Constable Coster will have to spring into action and get Plod of their comfortable, collective, wide arses, there will be Brother against Brother and Tribe against Tribe. The sort of dishonesty in this article published by the NZH and written by Denise Piper, will be part of the catalyst for any disharmony next week.

  2. Thanks TAH, some how this was supposed to thread in on your comment.

    To compare what was the English intent, that was with in a day or so translated to Maori, & was unaltered !
    The draft in English as James Busby produced, then that is what was translated to Maori that the Maori’s signed.

    https://www.treatyofwaitangi.net.nz/ReadtheTreaty.html

    The maori translation seems to follow the script, like poetry in motion.

    The 1889 translation back to English becomes very long winded in recent times totally changed intent by the maoris.

    ….. Article Third
    In return for the cession of the Sovreignty to the Queen, the people of New Zealand shall be protected by the Queen of England and the rights and privileges of British subjects will be granted to them.-

    “In the immortal words of Lieutenant-Governor William Hobson, after the signing of the Treaty,”
    “He Iwi Tahi Tatou” – We are now one people

    …. the 200 Chiefs who attended the 1860 Kohimarama Conference where they, “Pledged to each other to do nothing inconsistent with their declared recognition of the Queen’s sovereignty, and of the unions of the two races”. ….
    http://onenzfoundation.co.nz/what-the-treaty-of-waitangi-really-said-in-1840/

    And so the changes by the academic, accepted & acclaimed by universities of Sir Professor Kawharu translation.

    Professor Margaret Mutu and Professor Hugh Kawharu have attempted to translate the Tiriti o Waitangi into English, but all these translations make the Tiriti o Waitangi mean something that was never intended by Queen Victoria or the 500 Maori chiefs who signed it in 1840. They have rewritten the Tiriti o Waitangi to give Maori special rights and privileges never intended by those who signed it in 1840. ….
    http://onenzfoundation.co.nz/what-the-treaty-of-waitangi-really-said-in-1840/

    Those changes were never ratified, put up in a motion, neither first readings or submissions made in acclaiming this alternative translation, no consultancy with any other communities or put through Parliament.

    Surely that makes all the “good will” payments made by the New Zealand government illegal, stolen of the taxpayer, via a golden pyramid scam in the name of peace, …. yeah right …. and that money, assets etc.. should be returned to all the “one people” of New Zealand.

  3. TO THE CURRENT PARLIAMENT IN NZ,

    Or are you a pack of liars who will say you did not know the jabs were useless and just being used to try to control us, destroy our lives, our jobs, our ability to earn a living, see our relatives and friends, HUH? What do you say? or are you going along with Commrade ARDERN’s shut down of freedom of information using censorship to destroy us….

    WHAT DO YOU SAY TO THIS….????? AND WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT IT AND WHAT WILL YOU DO REGARDS THE WEF AND THE WHO? WHAT????

    A federal judge in Canada ruled that the Trudeau government was wrong to evoke the Emergencies Act in 2022 to clear the trucker convoy. The court ruled that the government was unreasonable and infringed on the protestors’ rights.

    The judge ruled that the government’s act was ultra vires, a Latin term used to mean that it was beyond the scope of the law.

    Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland responded to the ruling. She says that the government intends to appeal because “we do not agree with this decision.”

    “I would just like to take a moment to remind Canadians of how serious the situation was in our country when we took that decision. The public safety of Canadians was under threat, our national security, which includes our national economic security, was under threat,” she said.

    That’s a lie. The government knew at the time that the Covid vaccine was not preventing the spread of Covid, therefore there was no rationale for a vaccine mandate, much less a reason to impose it on a working population that had been driving alone in trucks for the entirety of the pandemic. They infringed on Canadians’ rights to protest this mandate.

    Last year, a government inquiry ruled that the emergency declaration was just fine but what else would you expect from a government inquiry of itself. This court ruling is a much bigger deal.

  4. The Los Angeles Times plunges into ‘chaos’ as brutal layoffs loom and senior editors call it quits

    Meanwhile, amid the backdrop of bedlam, the team of four managing editors — Julia Turner, Sara Yasin, Scott Kraft, and Shani Hilton — tapped to oversee operations in the wake of Merida’s departure has also been rocked by departures. Two of the four members, BuzzFeed News alums Hilton and Yasin, have in recent days exited the newspaper, contributing even further to the turmoil that has enveloped the newsroom.

    “We have a billionaire who doesn’t understand media and thinks he can cut his way to success,” another staffer told me, likening the drama playing out in the editorial leadership to the reality television show “Survivor.”

  5. The Canadians are the latest to get hold of the contract between Pfizer and their government. This is a key clause they found

    https://t.me/covaxnz/16151

    “Purchaser further acknowledges the long term effects AND EFFICACY of the product are currently UNKNOWN and that there may be adverse effects of the vaccine that are currently unknown.”

  6. New Zealand First
    @nzfirst
    Local North Island iwi members plan to blockade boat ramps to stop the Doubtless Bay Fishing Classic tomorrow in protest of the Government’s policies.

    Speaking to Newshub, Shane Jones said, “The notion that this is related to the Government’s manifesto is absolute crap. This is the activity of a small, delusional, irrelevant group, outlaws who are trying to ruin a fishing competition that has been running for decades”.

  7. They’re all coming out of the woodwork now…FFS.

    Last night’s Foo Fighters concert in Christchurch was marred by a naked man who shocked concert goers with his antics.

    The naked man engaged in an explicit act in full view of the audience at Apollo Projects Stadium.

    Among the crowd were children witnesses said.
