Although readers under 50 are probably unaware of it, the 1981 Springbok rugby tour of NZ was hugely controversial and saw big protests on the streets against it. The issue was simple — the South African government’s granting special rights and privileges to a minority of the country’s population based on their bloodlines was morally wrong. This included legislative power by the minority over the majority.
Nine years later in 1990 as South Africa descended into violence and turmoil, the government decided Apartheid had to end.
There is an old saying — “those who fail to learn from the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them“
Clearly PM Jacinda has learned nothing from the lessons of history. See this article by Muriel Newman, and a guest post by Ross Meurant.
The following is the text of the open letter written by Dr. Tess Lawrie to Dr. June Raine, chief executive of the UK’s Medicines and Health Care Regulatory Agency (MHRA) demanding the halt of the mass rollout of Cv ‘vaccines’ after discovering a “high number of Cv-19 vaccine-attributed deaths and ADRs [adverse drug reactions] that have been reported via the Yellow Card system”. The Yellow Card review includes reports from January 4, 2021 to May 26, 2021.
Dr. Lawrie goes on to summarize the findings of their rapid report on ADRs. Here are some of them:
“sudden death” of 438 people following vaccination;
152 fatalities from brain bleeds and clots;
103 fatalities from pulmonary embolism;
and 81 due to cardiac categories;
13,766 bleeding, clotting and ischaemic ADRs were identified;
54, 870 ADRs and 171 fatalities due to immune system disorders
Some people who experienced “infection” ADRs were cases of re-activated latent viruses, including Herpes Zoster or shingles (1,827 ADRs), Herpes Simplex (943 ADRs, 1 fatal), and Rabies (1 fatal ADR).
157,579 people experienced pain after vaccination
185,474 or 21% of all ADRs were categorized as nervous system disorders. A variety of neurological disorders were noted, including paralysis, palsy, Guillain-Barre, multiple sclerosis, neurodegeneration, seizure, among others.
4,771 people experienced visual impairments including blindness
Dr. Lawrie says that their preliminary review suggests that the ADRs they found was not limited to any one vaccine (all vaccines were causing ADRs).
The open letter goes on to say: “The nature and variety of ADRs reported to the Yellow Card System are consistent with the potential pathologies described in this paper and supported by other recent scientific papers on vaccine-induced harms, which are mediated through the vaccine spike protein product. It is now apparent that these products in the blood stream are toxic to humans. An immediate halt to the vaccination programme is required whilst a full and independent safety analysis is undertaken to investigate the full extent of the harms.”
Editor’s Note: Governments have been said that their implementation of lockdowns, masks, physical distancing, and now, universal vaccination, are precautionary measures to prevent the devastation of societies. It then follows that if governments were truly protecting societies, then they know that the most prudent approach is to suspend all vaccination campaigns.
Governments and their regulatory agencies knew from the beginning that all these vaccines were experimental products. As such, careful collection of data is a must. Now that the data for millions of vaccine recipients is here, and hundreds of thousands of vaccine injuries are appearing, it is time for governments to accept that these vaccines are dangerous and must be stopped [see New study: Vaccines are the likely cause of adverse effects and deaths following vaccination].

To answer the question in the last paragraph, the mayor and councillors collectively employ Mr Maxwell and they are the ones who should exercise their responsibility in this regard. If they don’t, then the voters can in turn express attitudes about them through the ballot box next year.
From what we know, apart from the present mayor, the only diehard supporters Mr Maxwell has around the council table are Crs Holborow and Buswell (and in 2019 we said that Kapiti would be better off without those two). There are 5 councillors who have considerable misgivings about Mr Maxwell and 3 who have mild misgivings. It would be great to be a ‘fly on the wall’ at the next CEO Performance Review meeting.
“I will not perform on any stage where there is a discriminated audience present,” the famed musician warned.
Famed guitarist Eric Clapton has been an outspoken critic of measures taken to address the China virus pandemic, including performing the Van Morrison-penned, anti-lockdown song “Stand and Deliver” released in December 2020. According to Variety:
Written by Morrison and performed by Clapton, the four-and-a-half minute bluesy track expresses dissatisfaction with the government-ordered lockdowns spurred by rising cases of Cv.
“Do you wanna be a free man/ Or do you wanna be a slave?/ Do you wanna wear these chains/ Until you’re lying in the grave?” Clapton sings.
Other lyrics include: “Magna Carta, Bill of Rights/ The constitution, what’s it worth?/ You know they’re gonna grind us down, ah/ Until it really hurts/ Is this a sovereign nation/ Or just a police state?/ You better look out, people/ Before it gets too late.”
Two months later, Clapton received two shots of the AstraZeneca Cv treatment, after which he claimed he had experienced “disastrous” side effects that left his hands and feet numb. The musician wrote a letter about his experience in which he criticized the “propaganda” that maintained the Cv ‘vaccine’ was “safe for everyone”:
“In February this year, before I learned about the nature of the vaccines, (and being 76 with ephezyma) I was in the avant garde. I took the first jab of AZ and straight away had severe reactions which lasted ten days, I recovered eventually and was told it would be twelve weeks before the second one…
“About six weeks later I was offered and took the second AZ shot, but with a little more knowledge of the dangers. Needless to say the reactions were disastrous, my hands and feet were either frozen, numb or burning, and pretty much useless for two weeks, I feared I would never play again, (I suffer with peripheral neuropathy and should never have gone near the needle.) But the propaganda said the vaccine was safe for everyone….”
It was no surprise, then, that after UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced in July 2021 that full vaccination status would be required to enter nightclubs and other venues where large numbers of people gather, Clapton himself issued a countering announcement declaring that he would not perform in any public setting where proof of vaccination was required for attendance:
“Following the PM’s announcement on Monday 19 July 2021 I feel honor-bound to make an announcement of my own,” Clapton said. “I wish to say that I will not perform on any stage where there is a discriminated audience present. Unless there is provision made for all people to attend, I reserve the right to cancel the show.”
The guitarist’s current tour calendar lists only a couple of UK shows, at London’s Royal Albert Hall, scheduled for May of 2022. Clapton is set to embark on a U.S. concert tour in September 2021.
“The ACT Party is calling on teachers and Ministry of Education staff who feel uncomfortable being forced into Critical Race Theory training to reject it,” says ACT’s Education spokesperson Chris Baillie.
“ACT revealed yesterday that more than half of Education Ministry staff have been through a course called ‘Courageous Conversations about Race.’ The course teaches them that “guilt and shame” are natural responses to “white privilege.”
“The American program has been reported as requiring people to stand up and list their privilege. It sounds like something Pol Pot or Mao Tse Tung would require. People must acknowledge they are bad and commit to a new mantra. They should be able to reject it without consequence.
“We’ve also heard of school children who have been asked to acknowledge their ‘white privilege’ in the classroom.
“All New Zealanders should be treated equally, not divided against each other based on who their grandparents were.
“The New Zealand Bill of Rights says: “Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience, religion, and belief, including the right to adopt and to hold opinions without interference.”
“Education Minister Chris Hipkins needs to show leadership and tell the civil service whether these ‘courageous conversation’ re-education boot camps are mandatory, or optional.
“I was a teacher for 22-years and I know the pressure teachers can face.
“If they’re optional, he should make it clear that civil servants should not face any repercussions for refusing to feel ‘shame and guilt’ for things that other people of a different skin colour did in a different century before they were born.
“Who knows, once we have got past political re-education of civil servants and teachers, the Government could focus on getting kids to school and learning useful things. While the Government focuses on importing intellectual fads from America, student attendance and achievement in New Zealand is in free fall. Those declines can’t be caused by racism, unless the Government believes racism has increased on its watch.
“ACT finds it abhorrent that kids may be treated differently by teachers because if their race. It’s time for the Minister to be clear about what the agenda is here.”
Major changes are coming with the Labour government giving itself unprecedented powers over local government. This worries KCDC Councillor Bernie Randall and Guy Burns, Deputy Chair of the Paraparaumu/Raumati Community Board who are calling for local government to be entrenched within the New Zealand Constitution Act.
They say there are big perils ahead in the Three Waters plan which is being fast-tracked. This intends to take control of drinking water, stormwater and waste water away from local councils and new bureaucracy created to administer them centrally. There are also big changes signalled to the Resource Management Act as well as a major review into the future of local government. These changes diminish local decision making.
Labour in government has never been afraid of its local government counterparts. Parliament could abolish all 78 councils if it really wanted to. Such powers were last used in 1989 when parliament amalgamated 817 local bodes into 86.
The concentration of power in the central government will weaken accountability by elected local representatives and make local leaders dependent on the whims of central government bureaucrats and ministers. Having the principles of local government entrenched into a Constitution will forestall any attempt to diminish local government in favour of centralised rule.
The New Zealand Constitution Act 1986 could be amended to recognise and strengthen local government’s role in the governance of the nation. A statute which is fixed cannot be changed unless that change is supported by 75 per cent of parliamentarians. Councillor Bernie Randall and Deputy Chair Guy Burns believe that the Local Government Act should be entrenched.
Councils represent all the people of New Zealand. In 2013 local authorities voted unanimously in support of a remit that local Government New Zealand promote an amendment to the Constitution Act 1986 giving constitutional expression to local government. Such change is commended as local government must be safe-guarded from any future constitutional arrangements that will emerge out of the current major reviews and plans currently being dictated.
Last Friday, 16 July, Stuff itself announced in an article headed “NZ On Air dishes out $9.6 million to journalism” on its website that “Stuff will receive $591,465 for its The Whole Truth project which is designed to counter misinformation where it occurs about Covid-19.“
It’s now become apparent what this means: Stuff has employed people on behalf of the government to add counter comments to anyone making adverse comments about the government mandated China virus “vaccines” on all NZ non-Mainstream websites that take a critical editorial attitude to government announcements — these include sites like Murial Newman’s Centre for Political Research, Bassett, Brash and Hyde, the BFD, and ourselves.
Social media platforms like Facebook are monitored by two teams employed by the Jacinda government, who clearly have the power to issue bans of 1 day to 30 days and add a “false information” warning” to the posts/comments they make. The sources for the “false” claims when investigated are not particularly convincing ones.
Websites are a different matter, so these people make counter comments, and usually with pseudonyms. This latter aspect is worrying. In the case of the anti-1080 Campaign, those paid by DoC to issue government-justifications for the mass eco-poisoning have used real names. One in Kapiti we have encountered is Sue Jensen Boyde.
But for the government’s Cv “vaccine” campaign, it seems these people don’t have the courage to use their real names, despite the fact that the real names of the opponents of these rushed and highly dubious substances are public. We have now received such counter-comments on skeptical China virus “vaccine” posts from 4 separate individuals, but 2 of these have had the same IP address, which we have traced to a building very close to Victoria University of Wellington (see the satellite view).
A few of the comments we allowed as the Jacinda government’s viewpoint needs to be presented to provide balance. But as the comments have become increasingly off topic and intended to attack a previous commentator or our editors, they have been deleted.
As has been stated before, we are not ‘anti-vaxers’; the general issue is one we are neutral about. The data that is available indicates that the number of reported adverse reactions to other virus vaccines on the market relative to the number of doses administered is not sufficient to negate the possible benefits from their use. But this is not the case with the Experimental Medical Treatments issued late last year for the China virus, including the Pfizer one. We believe the China virus vaxing campaign is premature for public release and should only be treated as experimental with willing volunteers who get paid by the pharmaceutical companies for the risk they are taking.
The ‘Three Waters’ plan is clearly part of her government’s He Puapua scheme to change NZ from a constitutional democracy to a constitutional oligarchy with power concentrated into the hands of a few (see the post on NZ Apartheid by Roger Childs). She has no concerns about throwing taxpayers’ money around like water (pun intended) to advance her no-longer-secret Agenda and get what she wants.
When it comes to what the country really needs, however, it’s another matter. She told Mike King there would be nothing for his Gumboot Friday campaign to improve mental health in the country; likewise she shuns proper pay for overworked nurses and teachers. There are plenty of other examples readers can give.
