This will be presented to the Council Meeting scheduled for 29 July. We encourage readers to sign and so tell the council management — Mr Maxwell in particular — that their behaviour on this issue has been deplorable.
It is yet another council service reduction for Waikanae people while Rates go up, it forces them to drive several extra km to the next facility in Otaihanga and thus makes a mockery of the council’s declaration that it is environmentally friendly. Link
This is one of the historic documents displayed in the Kapiti museum in Elizabeth Street — a plan for a sale of lots from the Field Estate. The most notable feature is the land shown as reserved for a future motorway, which of course didn’t start being built until about 10 years ago and opened as the ‘Ewy’ in February 2017, about 400 metres to the west (from how it looks). It also shows a site for a future school, which was never built.
Try and imagine the carry-on in Britain if its government announced special privileges for the original Anglo-Saxon and Celt citizens.
Nearly 40% of today’s Brits are of non-traditional ethnicity. Take those of Indian ethnicity. They have the highest educational standards of all Britain’s diverse ethnicities. They also have the highest incomes and are the least likely to be in prison. The current cabinet is dominated by Indian ethnics, many of four generations back and most pundits are picking the current, (Indian ethnic) Chancellor as Boris’s successor.
But here in New Zealand the government’s posture, if in charge in Britain, would be that you citizens of Indian ethnicity, must step back and allow special privileges to the poor suffering original Anglo-Saxon and Celt inhabitants.
That is a parallel of what is happening here in New Zealand with Maoridom.
We’re told Maoridom is bearing the awful toll of colonialism, two centuries back.
I’m of Welsh and English stock and have also suffered this. My ancestors had to endure the bloody Roman invasion. Just as we were finally getting over that, bugger me if we then had bloody Vikings turn up and run all over us. My how we suffered from post-colonial stress, but with the passing of time we were beginning to stand on our feet when in came the bloody Saxons. My God, the pain. How we lashed out at our wives and children as a result. But with no other option we hung on in and were just starting to gain some confidence when in 1066, the bloody French bowled up and it started all over again. And so it went. The agony of this constant post-colonial stress was unbearable.
So you will understand why Maori beat up their wives and children, dominate prison statistics and every other negative measure. It’s all down to colonialism. Only by giving them special privileges will we solve the problem, or so the government asserts.
Being well meaning is no excuse for the racial division the government is promoting with its endless excuses for Maori failure and Maori privilege.
One of my best mates is Maori. He endured the standard jailed father, the batterings and all the baggage that goes with it. Add to that dyslexia and gullibility leading to a short prison sentence but he was blessed with a typically strong willed Maori mother’s influence, urging him to forgo excuses and look ahead and not backwards. He’s become a huge success as a human being and wants no truck with excuses. He’s self-employed and hugely liked by all and sundry as a terrific human being. Further, to his great credit, he scorns Maori privilege.
I have Maori children, no surprise there as I have them by a rich variety of races. They all get on with their lives and couldn’t give a stuff about their ancestry. It’s 100% irrelevant.
Meaning well is no excuse for causing harm. The government is causing enormous divisive damage to our social fabric by catering to the dying Stuff’s type Maori wonderful nonsense. It will be a key reason they’re run out of office in two years time.
Thanks to Jim Cable for sending this. Whether the destruction of Democracy and its replacement by an Oligarchy (despotic power exercised by a small and privileged group — the top 1% in Maoridom) under the Jacinda government’s He Puapua is “well-meaning” is a moot point — there are those who claim it is a deliberate strategy as part of the U.N. Agenda 2030. —Eds
On Friday 16 July 2021, NZ farmers and supporters turned out country wide to protest the government’s latest proposals for environmental / conservation changes (in accordance with the UN Agenda 2030 plans). Shelley Krieger has explained what exactly the protest was about ….
“Once parts of land are classified as an SNA you lose your rights to that land… you have to fence it off at your own cost and still pay the rates on it but you can no longer use it … one Farmer near Inangahua is about to lose 80% of his 600 hectare farm …”
“In case anyone was confused as to why the Farmers were protesting on Friday I thought I would just put something here so people have an idea of why.
Firstly SNA’s (Significant Natural Areas), these are areas of people’s farm land or lifestyle blocks that the Government is getting the councils to survey. This is native blocks of land that have wild flora and wild animals that pass through it.
Once parts of land are classified as an SNA you lose your rights to that land, can not farm it or build on it. You have to fence it off at your own cost and still pay the rates on it but you can no longer use it. In some instances it is 80-90% of people’s land. One Farmer near Inangahua is about to lose 80% of his 600 hectare farm (1482 acres, of which he will lose the ability to farm or sell 1185 acres). So you could see how that could be upsetting.
Next is the clean water accord. We as Farmers are all for cleaning up the waterways and huge work has been done. The building of sediment traps to stop dirt eroding into rivers, fencing, riparian plantings (planting flaxes and trees along the waterways), effluent management, reducing nitrogen and fertiliser use, and trying to do more regenerative farming. I know that the perception from the media is that we are doing nothing and I’m sure there are a few die hard older farmers that are not prepared to change, but the younger ones coming in are fully aware of their obligations to the environment. And believe it or not, Farmers are the first ones to ring MPI if they see an animal welfare issue or the council if they see bad practices happening.
In the “Good Old Days” Dairy sheds were actually built alongside rivers so they could pump the cow poop into the rivers, because they didn’t know what the outcome would be, same as the meat works, they used to let all their waste go into the rivers too! Times have changed and we are making changes. The thing is, it’s not as easy to make some of the changes that everyone wants straight away. We ourselves have been using compost instead of fertiliser, are using natural grass stimulant instead of Urea and are spraying fish fertiliser onto the paddocks to stimulate growth to try to move away from synthetic fertilisers, and put our cow effluent on with pods that put it on lightly. It’s hit and miss. Some of the things work well and some don’t.
Grass and crops take the nutrients out the soil so we must replace it, you can not just deplete the soil of all its nutrients otherwise it won’t grow anything. I know of 3 other farmers that went Organic and all 3 sold up because they weren’t making any money. The costs involved in being Organic made the farms uneconomical. We also have another Farm close to us that has been trialing Regenerative Farming, he is a generational farmer with very little debt and he is having to sell the farm off 100 acres at a time because he’s not making enough money to pay the staff. So you can see it is a balancing act.
When we borrow to buy the farm and the animals the bank only lends to us under the proviso that we do a certain amount of production to be able to cover the mortgage repayments. If we fall behind in production then the bank starts to put pressure on for payment which is an added pressure on top of the Public pressure, the Media Pressure and the Environmental Pressure.
To top that off the Government has also said that we have to have our winter crops in the ground by the 1st of October or we will be fined. In the South Island it is impossible to get the crops in by then, it’s still winter and it is either raining or snowing and the ground is too wet to get a tractor into the paddocks to get the seed in the ground.
There is also new legislation coming in that says we have to pay to get resource consent every year to plant our crop paddocks if they are on more than a 10 degree slope, and that pugging of the paddocks must only be to a certain depth or we will be fined. We have to produce a farm map to council with a detailed plan of which paddocks will be cropped, and how each one will be fed. No farming costs can be passed on to the consumer!
Every time you go to the supermarket and are outraged at the prices, so are we! Dairy Farmers only get about 12 cents out of that block of butter. Next time when you drive past a farm instead of thinking “those lucky buggers”, think instead of how big their mortgage is.
If a Tradie has to buy something for the job at your house and the price has gone up on that item, then he/she can add that extra cost on to the job. Farmers can not. We get given the price the Global Dairy Auction or the Meat Works set for us. Any extra costs we have lumped on us have to get taken out of our living costs, and some of us now can not afford to employ as many people.
We are also extremely concerned about the Government introducing legislation that we have to slaughter up to 30% of the farmed animals that we have in NZ.
By themselves these giant holes in the ground aren’t too much of a problem if they are in remote wasteland; Australia has plenty of mineral and gold mines in outback areas that look like this, too.
But there is a problem when slave and child labour is used, which happens in Africa. There is also a problem when the amount of fossil fuel diesel used by trucks and machinery to extract all this is considered. Is there really any net benefit? What about the fossil fuel like coal and gas used for electric power plants? Is there any net benefit?
The Legacy Media in NZ downplayed the fact that Dear Leader’s government is importing a large amount of coal from Indonesia for the thermal power stations in NZ. What will the need for that be if lots more people start using her taxpayer subsidized EVs, let alone for normal needs by a steadily growing population? Are we building more clean hydro power plants, and if not why not?
These are all considerations that Green Party members and their voters ignore — but they are fundamental to the whole argument.
Who hasn’t noticed how the bought media have been struggling so mightily to repair the damage done by news of Jacinda Ardern’s signing off on $2.75 million funding of your dollars to the Mongrel Mob, a gang of race based drug dealing criminals. This is a gang that deals in death and family destruction, but Jacinda has made them a partner in the governance of New Zealand.
Labour’s coalition partner the Green Party is also in bed with the Mongrel Mob [see pic at right].
No doubt it’s a deal that exists because of some quid pro quo arrangement with her so called “Maori” caucus, led by the race hustler Willie Jackson. Mr Jackson was previously most well known for losing his radio job on account of his support for another gang; namely the Roast Busters who were accused of raping underage women and boasting about it on social media.
Ardern also works closely with the Maori Council, an organisation set up in 1960 as a focal point for Maori to interact with government on tribal issues. It now exists to pressure the government to accept the myth of Treaty “partnership” being key to the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi.
Professor Michael Baker’s recent Stuff comments appeared desperate and certainly revealing.
First, the desperate. He labelled the UK’s possible move from Covid-19 restrictions to freedom a “barbaric experiment”.
Let that sink in.
Returning to normal is a “barbaric experiment”. But not locking people up, making them wear masks, not letting them hug nana, subjecting them to alert systems, track and trace, closing businesses, schools and playgrounds, etcetera. The restrictions themselves are not experimental or barbaric. But letting people go about their business is.
Professor Baker seemingly has no awareness of how messed up that sounds.
