Injustice

Australia debates same-sex marriage, but was NZ given a say?

This time Australia is being pressured to change the marriage law.  They’ll be told that New Zealand did it, so why shouldn’t they?  The media are making it sound like there was a public mandate for same-sex marriage in 2013, but that’s simply not true.  New Zealanders weren’t asked.  We weren’t given a referendum.  We were silenced. 

The one and only time we got a voice was in a TV3 news poll.  This was the response.  There were nearly 17,000 respondents with 78% against.  The media were shocked at the strength of public opinion against and there was a media blackout over our opinion.

SHOCK – TV3 Campbell Live ‘Marriage-Equality bill’ poll

Here’s a cartoon from 2013 showing who had the say in NZ – politicians.

Marriage

At least Australians are being asked.  Why weren’t New Zealanders given the right to vote on this?

And before you label me a “hater” for pointing out the facts – I don’t hate homosexuals.  What I do hate is living in a society where people are shouted down and silenced, slurred for having a different opinion and not given a say in what their government does!  It’s called injustice.

These are the questions I hope Australians will ask themselves;  Who is driving this agenda?  Should government legislate morality?  What societal benefits are there in same-sex marriage?  Why are people who disagree being labelled “homophobes” and “bigots?”


Australians are voting on same-sex marriage — and it’s starting to get ugly

Israel and the NZ earthquakes

kerry-and-keyIn November 2016 the US Secretary of State John Kerry sneaked into New Zealand to meet prime minister John Key and Trade minister Murray McCully.  We were surprised at the timing because it was election day in the US. 

I covered it in a shaken nation.

We now know what the meeting was for. It involved Israel … and the TWO State Solution.  They met on the 13th November to discuss “particularly matters currently before the United Nations Security Council, including the Syria crisis.”

And what was currently before the United Nations Security Council?  Israel.

The Two State Solution

Here’s what led to the meeting.  There have been seven decades of failed peace talks between the ‘Palestinians’ and Israel.  US Secretary of State John Kerry led the most recent attempt at brokering a final peace agreement.  Those talks broke down in 2014, and then NZ successfully bid for a seat on the UN Security Council.

In 2015 the NZ government immediately started to pressure Israel to restart Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations, by using its position on the UN Security Council.  It led to Israel sending a blunt message to the NZ government not to try to restart the peace talks.

The day of the meeting on 13th November had barely ended, when at two minutes after midnight on the 14th November 2016 NZ was struck by the massive 7.8 earthquakes. This time there was damage in Wellington, and Kaikoura was devastated.

twoThe Number Two sign

The number two figured prominently in this earthquake.  Two huge earthquakes happened simultaneously, involving two different plates, at two minutes after midnight, that lasted two minutes, with two people dead, affecting two islands (the North and South Island), and to top if off the land underwent a two-metre shift south of Marlborough.
I have covered this more on my other blog: The trap in the ground, and the trumpet in the sky.

In the Meaning of Numbers in the Bible, the number two conveys the meaning of a union, division or the verification of facts by witnesses.

After the earthquake, NZ put forward a motion in the UN Security Council on the 23rd of December 2016.  (You’d think we’d have better things to worry about.)  It criticized Israel’s settlement in East Jerusalem, commonly referred to as the West Bank.  That meeting led to the Paris peace conference three weeks later on the 15th January 2017, a shameful Two State Solution hammered out in Paris without agreement from Israel.

“Do two walk together unless they have agreed to do so?”  Amos 3:3

This cartoon shows what I think of complicit little NZ’s actions.  I hope Israel and God will forgive this foolishness.

The sign of “Peace and Security”

peace-and-security

“At the heart of this whole debate is whether we will see a future in which two states, Israel and Palestine, live side by side in peace and security” the Zealand Herald reported on 12 January 2017.  Source: Opinion: Resolution 2334 – Preserving the two-state solution. 

Did you know the term “peace and security” was given as a sign before the Lord’s sudden return?  “Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.  1 Thessalonians 5

Israeli ambassador to New Zealand recalled after UN security resolution

The sellout of NZ

Thanks to greed, poor planning and economic mis-management, we can kiss goodbye to dreams of home ownership and a quarter acre section for the kids to run around on.  We now have people living in cars – unheard of before the economic reforms of the 1990’s.

New Zealand now has the highest housing prices in the world, next to Qatar!

How did we get here? These are a number of causes; (1) Supply and demand, (2) Land restrictions under UN inspired initiatives like Agenda 21 and now C40, (3) Foreign banks creating NZ’s money, and (4) Economic mismanagement.

(1 and 2) The demand for land out-stripping supply. The Auckland City Council has been restricting the amount of land that can be built on. Our media haven’t reported on this – but in December the Auckland City Council signed up to the C40 Low Carbon City Group, a group of councils across the world that regard carbon as a pollutant.  Carbon is not a pollutant – but we won’t go into that here.  I’ve already addressed that in Carbon Con, another blog post.

The C40 dream is for “compact cities” where car use is restricted. Our councils were already restricting land for building on under Agenda21, but it will really ramp up now Auckland is one of the C40 cities. The plan is for high density housing where people walk, bike, or use public transport. How can that be good for families? Gone will be our own private backyards where children and pets can play in the summer, and log fires in the winter. Gone will be our cars and garages. Gone will be land ownership and privacy. Surveillance will be increased and energy use will be monitored by things like “smart meters”, another thing that has been imposed on us.

big_4_money(3) Foreign Bank lending causing housing inflation.  The other reason for inflated housing prices is bank lending. NZ’s banking sector is dominated by big Australian Banks – called “the big four.” New Zealand banks were sold to them in the 1990’s.  The big four are the ANZ, NAB, Westpac and Commonwealth Bank. These foreign-owned banks hold 90% of New Zealand’s mortgages.

They make money electronically out of thin air and then loan it to New Zealanders at interest. Our money system is still based on the printing of bank notes, and nothing has been done to stop them from creating electronic money in this fashion. The overseas banks do have to have reserves, but its not covered by depositors funds – it’s covered by the inflated price of the land from the bubble they’ve created.

The big banks make huge profits which are taken out of NZ. They win, property owners and speculators win, and our children and people on the lowest rung of the economic ladder lose.

I’ve just heard on the news that half of the house buyers in Auckland are speculators. There are no laws to stop speculation in the NZ property market. The speculators don’t even have to be NZ citizens. It’s morally wrong.

(4) Economic mis-management.  Finally, we don’t have enough builders. The National Party decided that ‘the free market’ would deliver all the industry training New Zealand needed,” effectively wiping out the old apprenticeship system in the 1990s. Wage subsidies for apprentices on block courses were abolished in 1991, leading to the huge trades skills-crisis facing New Zealand today.  Source: http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/PO0507/S00250.htm

What can we do? Here are my ideas.  Stop unelected overseas entities from stealing our wealth.

Put pressure on our local and national government to demand the councils get out of the C40 “low carbon cities” initiative. Our rate payers are not being looked after in this group, and rates have gone up and will continue to go up. Technocrats in the UN, carbon exchanges and overseas investors are the only winners here.

Ask for a change to the money system. Ask why we aren’t creating the money electronically and giving it to Housing NZ?

Join Positive Money NZ – they’re part of an international movement for money reform.  http://www.positivemoney.org.nz/

Demand that we reinstate building apprenticeships.

Stop speculators buying our homes. Make it so they can invest in forestry or commercial property – but make it illegal to speculate on our homes.

Demand our local and national governments use some common sense – something that has flown out the window with the neo-liberal reforms of our economy in the early 1990’s. Blind fools in our government have let “the market’ dictate business and economic activity here, without any rules around the banks or the investors – resulting in this mess. They’ve enriched themselves at the expense of our country and our children.

Don’t borrow from the big four Australian Banks.  Go to the Cooperative Bank, Kiwibank or the Taranaki Savings Bank – they are all NZ owned.

There’s also Liberty Trust, who provide Interest Free Lending from pooled money.

I’d love to hear what you think.

Carbon con

Why is carbon being treated as a pollutant?  Does this look like a pollutant?  It’s a TWO minute science video, showing the effects of carbon on plants; TWO plants, TWO C02 concentrations, 42 days …

So we can see carbon is a good thing. Only junk science would insist it’s not. Don’t healthier plants equal better crops and more food?  Here’s a novel idea, stop the forests being felled in Indonesia and the Amazon!  And plant more trees!

Were there any voices of scientific reason at the Paris Climate talks?  I asked myself. I hoped so, for the world’s sake.  We don’t need the global economy bombed back to the dark ages with carbon reductions, regulations and wealth redistribution.  Or be fed insects, an idea that the globalists are trying to push on us.

There were some like-minded people at Paris.
CFACT (Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow) ‘Storms’ Paris With Four Inconvenient Facts About Global Warming.


CFACT-1Here are the inconvenient facts

Climate Hustle
As well giving the world some inconvenient facts, they’ve also presented an antidote for huckster Al Gore’s “Inconvenient truth,” a ridiculous power point I was subjected to when doing a Diploma of Business.

It’s about time someone did it.  They launched their new movie, Climate Hustle, in Paris at the same time as the climate talks.

“Climate Hustle is the Anti Inconvenient Truth. It’s for people with an open mind who want to know what’s really going on with the world’s climate – as opposed to what hucksters like Al Gore want to persuade them is going on with the world’s climate – all backed up with hard data and evidence presented by scientists who know and understand, among them the Nobel-prize-winning Norwegian physicist Ivar Giaever.”

But will people listen?

Or will they bury their heads in the sand?

Green protesters came to jeer “outside a film they’ll never watch made by people they won’t listen to presenting a message they’re ideologically incapable of comprehending.  If they ever did see Climate Hustle it would be totally lost on them.”

Who the devil is in Syria?

obama-arming-isis1How many of you think ISIS is the devil?  It’s true that Isis is of the devil.  But who the devil is helping them?  Did you know that Obama wouldn’t let Egypt, Jordan, or the Kurds take out that islamic rat’s nest? 

According to Oliver North, Obama wouldn’t give Egypt and Jordan targeting information on ISIS in Libya and Syria, despite the decapitation of the Egyptian Christians and the incineration of the Jordanian pilot in a cage. Nor did he lift a finger to help the Kurds.  Instead, he went golfing for the third day in a row.

Here’s an ABC news report about it:  Report: Obama Refused to Give Jordan, Egypt Information on ISIS Targets

Why would he do that?

Obama plays the role of a weak and indecisive liberal president.  This is just a facade.  Obama does things covertly.  That’s because Zbigniew Brezinsky was his mentor.  Zbigniew Brezinsky is a member of the Council of Foreign Relations, whose logo is a naked man on a white horse giving a 666 salute.  Brezinsky was directly involved with arming and funding Islamists in Afghanistan against the Soviets.

Brezinsky was directly involved with arming and funding Islamists in Afghanistan against the Soviets.  What is not well-known is that the U.S. started covert ops in Afghanistan six months before to lure Russia into quagmire.  That war in Afghanistan was one of primary causes of the fall of the U.S.SR.  I recommend you read this interview with Zbigniew Brezinski from 1998.  It won’t take long to read, it’s only one short page.  But it’s an eye opener.  It shows how Afghanistan was destroyed as a nation and how Islamic fundamentalism came to be the world menace it is today.

Here’s a short 1.23-minute clip where Clinton admits the U.S government created and funded the Islamists. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NzgW75tQj58

Where did Isis come from?  The Covert Origins of ISIS

ISIS was armed, trained and funded by Obama and his handlers.  Here’s the proof, in one short 14 second video clip.  This is what Obama said: “After the fall of Ramadi (2015) I’m speeding up training ISIL (ISIS), including volunteers from Sunni tribes in the Anbar province.”  Straight out of the horse’s mouth.
Busted ! Obama Admits US is Training ISIL (ISIS) !

The strategy to accomplish a hidden agenda: Problem, Reaction, Solution

ObamaAssadISISmeme

There’s a big game of chess here, and Isis is part of it.  Who is playing it?  Shadowy figures in the CIA like Zbigniew Brezinsky who want a one world government.  To achieve their ends they create a Problem, which causes a Reaction, and then they present the Solution.

This is their strategy:

1. Create a problem by arming and funding extremists to take down opponents (like Gaddafi or Assad) by proxy.  Build up a dictator or extremist group (like Isis) to wage a proxy war.  At first, hide their crimes.

2. Incite a reaction from the public by demonizing the same bad guys they put into power.  When the bad guys have outlived their usefulness, publish their crimes, 24-7.  It works best when the public have no idea how these bad guys got into power.

3. When the public are begging for the government to do something, a solution is proposed.  Usually, the solution involves military intervention, the loss of liberties, or both.

“ISIS is extremely useful.  It’s done Washington’s dirty work by weakening Assad. It gives them a pretext to get into Syria to topple Assad.  Isis gets into Syria to remove Assad.  They’ll let Isis get a bit more territory next. 

The puppets the US install prove to be useless, incompetent and corrupt.  Assad is the last bastion of stability in the region.  He’s the last chance they have.  Islamic extremists will take the helm and impose Sharia law and they’ll do everything in their power to spread it far and wide.” Source: The Muslim Brotherhood-ISIS Connection

The US and allies behind them should be held responsible for their covert regime change policies.  The individuals behind this should be charged for war crimes.

The Western media claim that Assad gassed his own people, without offering proof for that.  Why would he do that?  That would work against him.  The attacks were committed by Syrian rebels.  It turned out that the rockets used to deliver the sarin were improvised devices that experts concluded were home-made, and not consistent with the type that the Syrian government would have.

In the face of Obama’s actions ‘helping the moderates’ – Putin, Assad’s ally is taking the Syrian rebels out.  There are no ‘moderates’.

Lavrov, UN General Assembly

Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov said “If it looks like a terrorist, if it acts like a terrorist, if it walks like a terrorist, if it fights like a terrorist, it’s a terrorist, right?”

If it looks like ….

We could extend that to the devil.  The man on the left acted as Satan in the film ‘The Bible’.  But the scenes with Satan in it ended up on the cutting room floor!  Is it a coincidence they look so much alike, or is it a sign?

If it looks like a devil, talks like a devil, acts like a devil, fights like a devil, then it’s a devil.  Right?

The gratuitous U.S. government grab for non-U.S. assets, and that’s a FACTA

FACTA cartoonI believe our birth right in the West is to be free. The money we earn and our personal information should be our own.  The place where I’ve found that our government thinks otherwise is at the bank.

I first noticed the erosion of our rights in the early 1990’s, when the NZ government wanted to link our IRD (tax) number with our bank accounts.  It was optional, but if you didn’t give the bank your IRD number, any interest earned on your bank account would be taxed at 33%.  When I told the bank teller that they couldn’t have my IRD number the teller said “It’s coming you know.  You can’t fight it.”  I replied, “Well if everyone in the country has this attitude, you will be right!”

She was right.  Within a year, our government, wholeheartedly following it’s money master’s neo-liberal economic doctrine, sold that NZ owned Post Bank to a foreign bank.  The bank in the shopping centre soon disappeared, along with her job, and bank fees averaging $28 per month were introduced.  The government also upgraded our tax legislation – granting the IRD scary powers, exempting it from our privacy laws.

So that was back then.  Today the IRD can just reach into our private bank accounts and take our money if we don’t pay.  I discovered that last year on one of their forms.

FACTA

FACTA Bank cartoonAnyway, fast forward from the early 1990’s to late 2014, when I was at the bank filling out a deposit slip; and I overheard a man opening a bank account at a nearby desk being asked if he was an American citizen.  Then I heard the bank staff member explain they have to ask the question because of “FACTA”, a new law.

That got my attention.  I am married to a man who is an American, even though he left the US as a child. When I got back to the office I told him about this new banking law.  When we looked up FACTA, we were horrified.

The US government regards anyone who has been born in the states as a taxable resource.  Citizenship Based Taxation, FATCA, is designed to serve as a capital control; Human Capital.  The US, along with Eritrea, does Citizenship Based Taxation.  Eritrea was recently condemned by the UN (Resolution 2023) for doing it.

Take the case of London’s Mayor, Boris Johnson.  He was born in the USA but returned to England with his parents at the age of 5.  The U.S. government forced him to pay the capital gains tax on the sale of his Islington home.  He has never lived in America, but that means nothing to the IRS. They are hunting everyone everywhere.

I was thinking through the ramifications of FACTA for us;
What happens when we want to save for our retirement?
What happens if we want to open a new bank account?
What happens if we sold my house that I bought and freeholded before I met my husband?  Would the IRS be alerted if the money went into our joint bank account?
What happens to my information?  I am a non-US citizen, and my personal data would be sent to the US with no privacy protections.
It doesn’t matter that we already pay taxes in NZ.  The only way around all of this is for our accounts to be separated.

The form that US tax subjects have to fill out is a FBAR form.  If you get any information wrong on the form the IRS can substitute penalties for taxes. I’m sure you get the drift.

We decided that if asked about my husband’s citizenship we’ll answer truthfully that he is a NZ citizen and let his US passport rot in a drawer.

If the letter from the US government does come, my husband said he would renounce his US citizenship.  I told him he would be better to “relinquish” it, in case he ever wants to visit the US.

noo_zealandWe were appalled at the privacy invasion.  New Zealand has agreed to hand over our bank account details to a foreign country!  Our privacy laws are useless, they haven’t been overhauled in years, and IRD with its massive powers abrogates them.  This signifies the unacceptable encroachment of the government into the lives of every citizen – both here and in the US.

More about this here:

A New Zealand government didn’t want the political fallout which would come from breaching our privacy legislation, so they used IRD, being immorally above that privacy legislation, as a backdoor for US to spy on its own citizens.  If they did this once, why won’t a future government find it convenient to use the Teflon IRD on other issues that might be a bit embarrassing politically? Answer: there’s nothing stopping any government doing this. It’s the premise of this blog that IRD and its huge powers, is where the rubber meets the road to our total serfdom. All the Left protesting against GCSB, NSA and PRISM, what’s the difference, again, please?
http://lifebehindtheirondrape.blogspot.co.nz/2014/04/fatca-nz-officials-report-crime-that.html


Just to add insult to injury – the cost of enforcing US tax laws should be borne by the USA and FATCA, but the cost has been passed on to our spineless NZ government.

FATCA_Uncle_SamThe US government treats its citizens like a bankrupt bully with a gambling addiction.  It’s got it’s children, and their children’s children into debt; and now it’s raiding their piggy banks.  This is what it looks like when the financial elite get control.  My advice is protect your wealth and your assets from them.

The PC brigade strikes again

RespectIn New Zealand, we can no longer discipline our kids in public.

A father took his 3 children aged 9, 7, and 5 to visit their mother in hospital. He didn’t have to be there as he and the mother were no longer together.  That act of caring brought him an assault charge.

His name is Michael Laws, former Wanganui Mayor. His crime? He smacked one of his children in front of a nurse, who then complained to the police.
“Laws accused over child assault” blares the shrill headline from NZ Yahoo news.

http://nz.news.yahoo.com/a/-/top-stories/20860555/laws-accused-over-child-assault/

Now this father stands accused, and the police are having to investigate a child assault complaint, when their time could be better spent elsewhere.  There are heaps of burglaries to investigate from NZ’s P epidemic.

I have been in that same hospital with my child, where I allowed them to jab her with a needle – and it made her cry. What I did was preventative act of caring, necessary for me to do as a parent.  How come jabbing my daughter with a needle so she wouldn’t catch whooping cough or diptheria is not termethey-had-no-rightd an assault, when giving a quick smack to a child has stepped over the line is!

It’s sad that NZ has been turned into a small-minded nanny state where parents are under threat.  This man was a well known person in Wanganui and a good father.  Where was the nurse’s common sense?  He’s a Dad left bringing up his children on his own in a land of missing fathers and he didn’t deserve this nonsense.  He was visiting his estranged partner and didn’t even have to be there.  His actions were those of a caring parent, not a bad one!

Why did Yahoo news make that nefarious accusation into a headline? You have to get to the second paragraph before you realise what he is guilty of – a smack!  What kind of Orwellian newspeak are they peddling?  I don’t want my opinion shaped, or have to read to paragraph two to get at the truth.

NZ, first country to enact a ban (on smacking) following the publication of the UN Study on “violence against children”

How did we come to this  in NZ?  This putrid piece of PC excrement, disguised as a law, was passed in 2007 to criminalise parents who smack.  It came in under the government of Helen Clark, after a UN publication on violence against children.  Helen Clark has been amply rewarded – she is now 3rd in power at the UN.

smacking referendumIt was brought in despite public petitions and protests, and without a referendum.  It was finally put to public referendum under John Key’s government in 2009, where it was asked “Should a smack as part of good parental correction be a criminal offence in New Zealand?”  A whopping 87.4% of NZ answered ‘no’.  Nothing happened.  Why not, and why haven’t we been listened to?
