Geographic Board Considers North & South Island Names

The New Zealand Geographic Board Considers North and South Island Names

21 April 2009

The New Zealand Geographic Board Ngā Pou Taunaha o Aotearoa (the Board) is looking to formalise the currently used and recorded English names for the North and South Islands of New Zealand (‘North Island’ and ‘South Island’), as well as considering official alternative Māori names. The Board will be writing to iwi throughout the country in the coming weeks to seek their known traditional Māori names for both islands. It expects to be able to publicly consult with all New Zealanders on the names in 2010.

For several years the Board has been investigating Māori names for New Zealand’s two main islands and exploring a process for formally recognising alternative Māori names for each island.

“Interestingly, while researching this issue, we noted that ‘North Island’ and ‘South Island’ are actually not official names under our legislation, despite their common long-term usage,” said Board Chairperson Dr Don Grant. “We therefore want to formalise alternative Māori names and, at the same time, make the naming of the North and South Islands official.”

NZ: Why Was The HUGE News About The Nano-Thermite Not On The Front Page of The NZHerald and On The TV News?

By Clare Swinneyb852

Danish scientist, Professor Niels Harrit, reported during a news item that aired on April the 6th in Denmark  that nano-thermite was responsible for the collapse of WTC 1 and 2  on 9/11, not planes controlled by hijackers.

This is HUGE news given all that was hinged on the official story.  However, in spite of the gravity of the finding, although Professor Harrit’s TV report was picked up by on the 14th of April, and therefore readily available to mainstream journalists in New Zealand, at the time of writing this post it had still not been canvassed by TVNZ, TV3 nor by the New Zealand Herald.

The big question is why not? Who does the mainstream media really serve in this country?

While TV3 played 9/11: In Plane Site in its entirety in 2006, a documentary which showed that the official story was a lie, TVNZ and the NZHerald have consistently sold the public the official story about Osama bin Laden and the 19 hijackers.

In covering up the truth, these media outlets are complicit in the crime.  They have a duty to correct this lie and tell the people the facts and what better place to start than by advising the public of the report about the nano-thermite?

Who thinks it is time to protest outside TVNZ and the New Zealand Herald and let them know that the people of New Zealand care about the truth?

What are other people’s thoughts and ideas?

NZ: Calls for Focus on Population Issues in ETS Review

Embargoed until 1130am 9 April

Cross-Party Parliamentarians’ Group Calls for Focus on Population Issues in ETS Review

Wellington, 9 April 2009: Gender, sexual and reproductive health, and other population issues need to be at the heart of addressing climate change, including the current Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) Review Dr Jackie Blue, Chair, and Hon Steve Chadwick, Vice Chair, of the New Zealand Parliamentarians’ Group on Population and Development (NZPPD) will be briefing colleagues today as follow-up to their NZPPD written submission to the ETS Review Committee.

“There is increasing recognition around the world that these issues are vital to address in mitigating and adapting to climate change. New Zealand cannot afford to ignore this”, says Dr Jackie Blue.

The NZPPD submission states that there are fundamental and powerful differences in the way women and men: contribute to climate change; are impacted by climate change; their capacities to cope with and adapt to climate change; and their access and participation in decision making on climate change.

It is a widely accepted fact that climate change will impact worst on the poorest and most vulnerable. Women comprise 70% of those living below the poverty line around the globe. People who heavily rely on local natural resources for their livelihood are and will be severely impacted by climate change. Again, women disproportionately feature in this group. There is also much evidence that the disadvantaged position of women means greater difficulty in coping with natural disasters, and such disasters are increasingly being linked to climate change.

Global Warming or Global Governance? by Dr Michael Coffman, PhD


Parliamentarians for Global Action: Are These MPs Traitors to the People of New Zealand?

Traitors Within the NZ Parliament? Parliamentarians for Global Action (formally known as Parliamentarians for World Governance), a covert group operating in the NZ House of Parliament.

By Lorraine Smith, 8th of April 2009.

I have been reading a book written by Denis McKenna called The Sellout of New Zealand, which was published in December 1989.  I found it purely by chance while searching through the library archives.   The main theme of this book is the invasive and dangerous introduction of communistic policy under the guise of a socialist agenda into unsuspecting countries – New Zealand being one of these countries – and the intention of the international bankers and elite to form a fascist world government as many people have been exposing for years.

The chapter that I wanted to provide you information on regards a secret group operating in the NZ House of Parliament called the Parliamentarians for Global Action which was previously called the Parliamentarians for World Governance.  The New Zealand group is a sub-group of the World Association of Parliamentarians for World Government that first appeared in 1952, with a specific blue-print for the organisation of world government.  When this book was published more than half the current MP’s in New Zealand were members of this covert group.

The following passages are a direct quote from Denis McKenna’s book:

“Following a meeting at Ashville in North Carolina in February 1947 an organisation going under the title ‘United World Federalists’ was formed.  The brains behind it were two men who were members of American’s Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), Mr Norman Cousins and Mr James P Warburg of the international banking family”.

“The world federal government would be based upon the following principles and would include the following precepts:  “Membership open to all nations without the right of secession….World laws should be enforceable against individuals…The world government should have direct taxing power independent of national taxation”.

The World Government would have to tax all the individuals in the world to get the necessary revenues to create large military forces, in order to coerce any recalcitrant members out of the one hundred or so nations….Perhaps it is worth asking whether such a government would be a democratic or autocratic government.

Lord Birdwood spoke of an international Police Force of some 500,000 men and spoke highly of the book World Peace through World Law.

Lord Silken declared:
“What those of us who believe in World Government wants to do is to put teeth into the United Nations Organisation, to make quite sure that a decision given by them will be operative and enforced.  Before you do that, you must have a code of World Law which has been accepted by members of the United Nationals Organisation.”

“So we would endeavour in the first instance to create a world law; a world authority to interpret the law and to make decisions; and a World Police Force to enforce them.

“The United World Federalists’ method of operation was to be “…by making use of the amendment process of the United Nations to transform it into such a world government”.

“Mr Robert Hutchins, Chancellor of the University of Chicago was more specific.  “The nations must surrender their sovereignty to a world government.  All armies, fleets, air forces and atomic bombs must be under world government.  The Panama Canal, Gibraltar, Okinawa, the Dardenelles , Aden, Singapore and the Keil canal must all be under the administration of the world government”.

“The laws of immigration and citizenship must be abolished.  The world government must be formed.  The most important thing is to destroy that dangerous perversion called patriotism”.  The first president of the United World Federalists was L Meyer who in his book, Peace or Anarchy, wrote this chilling threat:  “Once having joined the One World Federal Government, no nation could secede or revolt….because with the atom bomb in its possession, the Federal Government of the World would blow that nation off the face of the earth”.

“The aforementioned James P Warburg appeared before the US Senate Committee in hearings entitled “Revision of the United Nations Charter” in 1950 and said….”the great question of our time is not whether or not one world can be achieved, but whether or not one world can be achieved by peaceful means.  We shall have world government whether or not we like it.  The question is only whether world government will be achieved by consent or conquest”.

In 1952 the World Association of Parliamentarians for World Government appeared.  Douglas Reed in The Battle for Rhodesia wrote from its documents, which said their organisation would take over the existing facilities of the United Nations.  Once that was accomplished the world organisation would set up a directorate composed of a World Director, eight zone Directors, five Commanders and fifty one Regional Directors.  The World Organisation’s Charter would affect security so that the people of the world may live in freedom from fear of war.  To ensure this, substantial armed forces would be stationed around the globe.  It would control the production and distribution of basic foodstuffs, raw and strategic materials.  The rearrangement of the world’s armed forces would require all the world’s armies, navies and air forces to be taken out of the control of sovereign nations and put at the disposal of the World Director.

Imagine the great – “jobs for the boys” under such a plan.  All the officials needed to run the world, would be nominated subject to the approval of the World Director, by designated governments.  It was not stated who would appoint the super-despot, the World Director.

History of the New Zealand Connection.

Working in the New Zealand Parliament right now is the New Zealand branch of Parliamentarians for Global Action.  They have been operating since 1981.

Information on the New Zealand branch of Parliamentarians for World Order (PWO) first came to light when the New Zealand Herald on May 21, 1981 reported that Mr Richard Prebble, Labour Member of Parliament for Auckland Central had been appointed one of 12 councillors of the then one year old body.  The same article said PWO consisted of representatives from 36 countries, and only MP’s could belong.

Mr Prebble subsequently issued a brochure outlining the purpose of the organisation.  It contained nothing but a rehash of all the scheming that had been going on for at least the previous forty years, yet the group was being presented as something new.

As Denis McKenna observes “One would think that if Mr Prebble sincerely believed that the PWO wishes only to assist mankind then he would have willingly supplied information on the group’s activities in New Zealand, as well as a list of the local members of PWO.  However all requests to Mr Prebble for such a list have been refused.  It may be correct, as Mr Prebble states in a letter dated 27 January, 1982 that he could not at that time make a list available without first receiving the permission of members at a general meeting.  Over seven years have passed since then and no list has been forthcoming.  Despite Mr Prebble’s reluctance some information on New Zealand’s members has been gained from various news reports and some members have admitted in private correspondence that they are members.  David Lange said at the time that “almost all Labour MP’s in NZ are members, as well as some National MPs”.

One month after the release of the “Prebble Document” the MP for Auckland Central told Parliament (16 June 1981) that he was a member of PWO and after outlining the world’s problems according to PWO, said: In the final analysis the survival of our planet will depend upon the decisions of only a few thousand politicians…We will not be able to tackle these problems unless we are prepared to cooperate and give up some of our national sovereignty.

Denis McKenna rightly makes the following point “The sovereignty of New Zealand does not belong to Mr Prebble or any other politician it belongs to the people of this nation.  The only Member of Parliament who has ever warned the people about the threat of PWO was Mr Graeme Lee, who in his maiden speech in Parliament on 21 April 1982 expressed his concern about the group:  “The organisation seeks opening to dilute or, if necessary, deny New Zealand’s sovereignty.  It seeks ultimately to replace our own elected representatives with a system of world government.  Any such body in my understanding is acting against our national interests and is suspect in its base.  At the time of writing this book Mr Lee was the only politician with the courage to expose the PWO”.

Helen Clark wrote a letter dated 4th December 1986 confirming that she was the branch secretary of the Parliamentarians for Global Action in NZ.  It appears that as their dealings in NZ were exposed that sometime between May and December 1986 they changed their name and Helen Clark replaced Richard Prebble as head of the group in NZ.   To the lay person Parliamentarians for Global Action is a lot more palatable than Parliamentarians for World Governance.

Mr Lee also commented that “I don’t believe for a moment that the Parliamentarians for Global Action in NZ are sitting down daily to plan a world takeover.  However, because of their alignment as a world wide network of groups, they are inextricably committed to the world governmental philosophies of others.

Current Day Situation

I have done some research on the internet and found this link which makes for very interesting reading as well as confirming that this organisation is still active and that New Zealand MPs are involved.

This source also shows a story referring to Helen Clark titled “PGA Member to head UNDP”.  It also shows Don McKinnon and Helen Clark being recipients of awards within the organisation.  Probably explains why she was successful in securing the role at the UN.

Under ‘membership’ the only two NZ MP’s currently mentioned are Mr. Ross Robertson, MP and Mr Wayne Mapp, MP  however I would say PM John Key is now involved too, along with a number of others.

I searched the NZ Government site, but found nothing significant that would indicate that this group is public knowledge.  I think this deserves some further investigation and public airing.  I doubt many people in New Zealand are aware of our MP’s involvement in a group that is driven to destroy our sovereignty and ensnare us in a dictatorial world government.

New Zealand Schools Bribed to Market Vaccines.

By Ian Wishart

The Ministry of Health is paying thousands of dollars to schools who agree to push teenage girls into being vaccinated with Gardasil, the new cervical cancer inoculation.
A letter sent by the Ministry of Education to school principals this week states that “To recognize the role that schools play in the programme, the Ministry of Health will provide a one-off support payment to participating schools…the Ministry of Education will assist in the funding transfer to schools, by placing the Ministry of Health funds in participating schools’ accounts in April 2009, with the identifier, ‘HPV Payment’.”
The letter, published first on a major blogsite, discloses a base payment of between $200 and $300 per school depending on whether they have Year 8 classes, plus an additional $2.50 per female student eligible to receive the vaccine (years 8 to 13).
Some larger high schools could receive cash payments totaling several thousand dollars if they allow schools to be used to market and administer the vaccine to children.
The news comes just as a report on adverse reactions to Gardasil has been made available, which disclosed 29 deaths in teenage girls who received the Gardasil vaccine in the US. The study, based on reports provided to the US government’s Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS), was published by the National Vaccine Information Center, an anti-immunisation organisation in the US.
The study, which compared a cohort of girls who’d received the Gardasil vaccine, with a cohort who’d received a widely-used meningococcal vaccine known as Menactra, has thrown up some disturbing results.
“VAERS is a sentinel reporting system,” says the study, “designed to raise ‘red flags’ for unusual numbers of serious adverse events following receipt of a newly licensed vaccine.”
One red flag in 2005 was raised after five girls developed the debilitating Guillain Barre Syndrome after being injected with Menactra in one campaign. But it seems Gardasil has provoked even more serious reactions. Twenty five girls died soon after receiving the cervical cancer vaccine, compared with six deaths contemporaneous with Menactra. Nine girls suffered heart attacks after the cervical cancer jab, and two after Menactra. Sixteen teenage girls suffered strokes after Gardasil injections, and one on Menactra. Thirty four girls on the cervical cancer jab suffered thrombosis, compared to just one after Menactra, and a further 23 teenage girls were hospitalized with blood clots after their Gardasil injection while none of the Menactra teens had that reaction.
A staggering 544 American girls suffered seizures Schools bribed to market vaccines proximity to the cervical cancer injection, and while 158 given Menactra suffered seizures as well, doctors later discovered that 73 of those had also been given Gardasil.
Compared to Menactra,” says the study, “receipt Gardasil is associated with at least twice as many Emergency Room visit reports, four times more Death reports, five times more Did Not Recover reports and seven times more Disabled reports.
It is unusual for there to be such a big discrepancy between two vaccines used in similar populations involving serious and relatively rare life-threatening adverse events and autoimmune disorders such as death, blood clots, cardiac arrest, lupus, thrombosis, stroke and vasculitis,” says the study.
Fainting, which has been attributed by doctors health officials as ‘fear’ of needles in teenage girls is reported six times as often… after receipt Gardasil than Menactra, even though Menactra also given to girls in the same age group.
In pre-licensure clinical trials, Gardasil was only tested in fewer than 1200 girls, 16 years and younger. Through November 30, 2008, in girls 16 or younger, there were reports of 9 deaths, 3 blood clots, cardiac arrests, 9 cases of lupus, 6 strokes…after receipt of Gardasil.”
The National Vaccine Information Centre has also called on the US Congress to “investigate the fast-tracking of Gardasil vaccine without adequate long term safety studies in American pre-adolescent and teenage girls between ages 9 and 16 and the safety
efficacy of Gardasil vaccine in all age groups.”
Meanwhile the US Centers for Disease Control belatedly begun investigations into Gardasil after a 15 year old girl died this month from complications of what appears to be a particularly rapid and aggressive motor neurone disease (like physicist Stephen Hawking’s), which developed after she first received the Gardasil vaccine in 2007. Jenny Tetlock’s father, a psychology professor at UC Berkley, is now among a number of parents asking why, as vaccine maker Merck faces lawsuits over the dangers
of Gardasil – dangers the vaccine company denies. Several other teenage girls developed the same paralyzing illness after being vaccinated against cervical cancer, and Jenny’s parents suspect “it could be just the tip of the iceberg”. Jenny’s family
are holding her memorial service this weekend.
Part of the reason for the ‘tip of the iceberg’ claim i is that many adverse vaccine reactions, although treated by medics, are not reported to the VAERS centre, meaning that although VAERS can indicate problems, it can’t necessarily tell you how widespread
they are in relation to total vaccine doses. The type of illness that struck Jenny Tetlock, for example, should only strike one in five million girls, yet from a survey of their 30,000 website visitors the Tetlocks are aware of three verified cases. With only just over six million girls vaccinated in the US (three shots per child), the odds of three in a sample of 30,000 developing aggressive motor neurone disease naturally are very unlikely.
New Zealand’s Ministry of Health steers well clear of the Tetlock case but rejects generally claims that girls have died after receiving Gardasil shots:
“The NVIC reports that the vaccine has caused deaths in the US. These were rigorously investigated by the Centers for Disease Control who have not established
any causal links between the deaths and the vaccine,” says he Ministry’s Dr Greg Simmons, NZ’s Chief Advisor on Population Health. “ Their findings are publicly available ( and support the ongoing availability of the vaccine.
“On their website, the US Centers for Disease Control [CDC] state that ‘As of December 31, 2008, there have been 32 US reports of death among females who have received the vaccine.  Each of these deaths has been reviewed and there was not a common pattern to the deaths that would suggest they were caused by the vaccine. In cases where there was an autopsy, death certificate, or medical records, the cause of death was explained by factors other than the vaccine. Some reported causes of death received to date include illicit drug use, diabetes, viral illness, and heart failure’.”
Despite the assurance, the CDC’s statement fails to address why vastly more deaths have been reported in the wake of Gardasil injections than Menactra injections. If the deaths were all random and unrelated to the vaccines at all, then similar death rates should apply across all vaccines.
Instead, of the six million US girls vaccinated against Gardasil 32 have died soon after, whilst of the approximately ten million girls given Menactra shots, only six have died. Statistically, the Gardasil death rate appears to be highly significant.
Of the more than 10,000 adverse reports on Gardasil, NZ’s Ministry of Health says “94% of these considered minor such as injection site pain, nausea or dizziness.” The remaining six percent, or more than 600 cases, are implicitly acknowledged as medium to serious.
The Ministry of Health statement did not address specific allegations regarding blood clots, heart attacks or strokes, but made a general statement about the reality of side effects.
“US authorities, as well as health regulators around the world including Medsafe in New Zealand continue to monitor the adverse events reported in association with the vaccine and consider that the benefit – risk profile remains positive.
“Although Gardasil, as with any vaccine, has the potential to cause some adverse effects, the decision to vaccinate needs to be made on an individual basis keeping in mind the potential benefit of preventing cervical cancer being balanced against the potential risks of adverse effects. These potential adverse effects are discussed in the Consumer Medicine Information leaflet which can be found on the Medsafe website at:
On the allegation of ‘bribing’ schools, Dr Simmons says paying schools to help market vaccines to children has been done here before:
“Each school’s Board of Trustees was responsible for deciding if the immunisation programme could be delivered at their school. Schools have received support payments for allowing immunisation clinics to be provided on their premises before.”

NZ’s UN climate change negotiations to begin in Germany

Should the New Zealand government be engaging in such negotiations in light of all the evidence that shows that “man-made global warming” is a scam? For example, the IPCC has been caught fabricating data and even one of the IPCC reviewers warns that global warming is a scam, plus as can be seen in this government press release, while Dr Nick Smith seems worried about the level of CO2 in the atmosphere, he shouldn’t be, as  more CO2 it leads to more plant growth.  See:    Environmental Effects of Increased Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide

27 March 2009 Media Statement

Next round of UN climate change negotiations to begin in Bonn

New Zealand will join the next round of United Nations negotiations on a future international climate change agreement in Bonn, Germany, from 29 March to 8 April, says Minister for Climate Change Issues, Nick Smith and Associate Minister for Climate Change Issues, Tim Groser.

“The Bonn meeting will have a special focus on agriculture, which produces almost a fifth of global annual greenhouse gas emissions,” Mr Groser said.

“Agriculture faces a unique set of challenges: feeding a growing world population, different practices across countries, and technology limitations. We need the next climate deal to pay more attention to this important sector.

“At Bonn, New Zealand will participate in a workshop on the challenges and opportunities for reducing emissions from agriculture.

“New Zealand has proven expertise, and we want to work more closely with other countries to grow the global research effort in this area.”
Dr Smith says that the international community needs a long term global goal to aim for.

“New Zealand supports a global goal of long-term stabilisation of all greenhouse gases in the atmosphere at a concentration of no higher than 450 parts per million of carbon dioxide equivalents. This goal will be kept under review based on latest available intergovernmental assessments of science,” says Dr Smith.

The Bonn meeting will provide an opportunity to outline New Zealand’s ’50 by 50’ goal, a 50 per cent reduction of net greenhouse gases from 1990 levels by 2050.

“New Zealand will be looking to contribute in ways that make sense for us and recognise the features of our country and how we make a living. However, we will not finalise our international commitments until we know what costs are involved, and what rules apply,” Dr Smith says.

The next major conference will take place in Copenhagen in December.

IPCC Scientists Caught Producing False Data To Push Global Warming

The NZ Herald Is Asking If NZ Needs An Anti-Terror Squad

The New Zealand Herald is asking for your views on this topic here:

Tell them what you think.

It states: “Army heads are calling for recruits from the armed forces to man an anti-terror squad responsible for domestic security.

A defence source last night said the recruitment drive was prompted by “a surge in the global war on terrorism”.

The unit would also be responsible for dealing with any security threats at the 2011 Rugby World Cup.

Does NZ need an ‘anti-terror’ squad?”images

Uncensored reply: “The New Zealand people do not need an anti-terror squad.   The attacks of 7/79/11, Oklahoma City and numerous other terror attacks have been proven to be inside jobs and have been used to justify the setting up of a police state,  surveillance grid and invade countries for oil.   Even the BBC series ‘The Power of Nightmares’ revealed that the so-called “War on Terror” is a scam.   People need to ask themselves what the purpose of this squad really is.  Does it have something to do with the elite bankers’ call for a New World Order?  Does government need this squad because they are expecting resistance to what they have planned for us and want the army to protect themselves?
