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

NZ’s UN climate change negotiations to begin in Bonn

Hon Tim Groser
Associate Minister for Climate Change Issues (International Negotiations)

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.

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?

Does New Zealand Face the Fate of Iceland?
Thursday, March 5, 2009

Privately, with friends and family, I’ve been referring to New Zealand as Iceland 2. The financial situation here is not quite as absurd as Iceland’s, but the comparison is legitimate because of New Zealand’s extremely high debt load.


I wouldn’t be surprised if this results in Australiazealand.

—Private email to a reader

Via: IHT:

The economy is in its worst recession on record, the current account deficit is ballooning, the government faces a sea of red ink and credit ratings firms have the country under the microscope – is New Zealand the sick man of the South Pacific?

Once a darling of foreign investors because of high interest rates, the country appears almost like Iceland, judging from the current account deficits it has accumulated over three decades.

After weathering the Asian economic crisis and drought in 1997 and 1998, the $95 billion New Zealand economy enjoyed its strongest growth since the 1970s, thanks partly to soaring commodity prices and debt-fueled consumer spending.

Now the economy is shrinking as the once-hot housing market has stalled, skyrocketing fuel and food prices have turned consumers cautious and the credit crunch has hit.

Unlike Iceland’s banks, which were brought down by aggressive and highly leveraged growth, or European banks rescued by their governments, New Zealand’s banking industry shows no signs of stress yet.

The big Australian banks – National Australia Bank, Westpac Banking, Australia and New Zealand Banking Group and Commonwealth Bank of Australia – dominate the market and have so far escaped the global meltdown.

Sue Trinh, a currency analyst at RBC Capital Markets in Sydney, said the likelihood of New Zealand’s becoming a customer of the International Monetary Fund was still low, given banks’ strong capital.

IS JOHN KEY ‘SHONKEY’? Complaint lodged with SFO.

5 October 2008

Just before 5pm Friday 3 October 2008, I lodged a formal complaint
with the Serious Fraud Office about National Party leader John Key’s
failure to declare his pecuniary interest in Tranz Rail shares at a
time it was an ‘Item of
Business’ before Parliament.

A complaint will be similarly lodged with the Police, on the same
grounds – which are attached to this email, for your information and

As all evidence I have provided is in the ‘public domain’, and there
has been considerable media coverage and public interest in the recent
Privileges Committee deliberations and Report on ‘Members Pecuniary
Interests – Gifts and Donations’, interests of ‘open, transparent
and democratically accountable’ government – I am making details of
this complaint public. Read more

Don’t ever forget who the Nats are

Is Chris Trotter good company? Not if we are to choose our friends on their looks.

Foreword by Simon Taylor

You might already have seen this. You might not have. Worth a read. Classic Trotter-waving – the sort the left are wary of these days. To the point of forgetting how to do it. And to the extent that one Nat blog called it ‘hate speak.’

We might call them so, but don’t wasps bite for lack of pricks?

The response has been largely predictably ad hominem – who signs Chris Trotter’s pay-cheques? He’s in the pay of… Or he’s simply a fuckwit, and so on.

What interests me is the confusion the piece has elicited between who the Nats are and the company they are said to keep. That Chris makes the distinction is I think the piece’s singular distinction. I live in John Key’s electorate. And he lives in Remuera. In better company, indeed.

Until the Trotter op-ed piece came along, we had to be getting on with the “bland leading the bland.” A state of affairs which could only have ended with a ‘bland-slide.’

Who, to consider the man is John Key? What do his upper-palatal speech habits, constricted, tell us about him? like the boy we used to feel sorry for at playcentre? And Bill English, whose transcripts show he barely speaks it. And Lockwood – I used to know his son – Lockjaw? Well, tongues are wagging but jaws are barely moving.

There’s a faint tickle on the line, which is terrifying and comical when one knows one is at sea. With heavy weather or extreme events certainly approaching. Like finding ocean diminished to rockpool. And, canst thou draw out a shrimp with an hook?

– Sunday Star Times | Sunday, 20 July 2008

So you’re thinking of voting for the Nats? After nine years of the same old faces, you think it’s time for a change?

Well, you’re not alone. According to the opinion polls, there are about 350,000 people out there who are thinking what you’re thinking.

But before you – the 15 per cent of the electorate contemplating a lurch to the right – throw your weight behind the 35 per cent of New Zealanders who make up National’s core vote (which will then, with 50 per cent, and wielding unbridled parliamentary power, be free to govern alone for three long years), I would ask you to take a closer look at the people you will be joining.

1 August 2008
Businessman and publisher Vince Siemer stands defiantly against what he claims is an unlawful order of the New Zealand High Court; a stance which today resulted in Justices Lester Chisholm and Warrick Gendall ordering an arrest warrant for Siemer and a six month prison sentence.

On 8 July 2008, Chisholm and Gendall ordered Siemer to remove unspecified articles from websites and  The judges claimed the websites breached a gag injunction granted Auckland insolvency practioner Michael Stiassny when he filed defamation proceedings against Siemer in April 2005.  Stiassny has failed to advance the defamation case and no trial date has been set.  Siemer has refused to make any changes to the website, saying he had already taken the extraordinary action of proving the accuracy of his reporting to the Court of Appeal in February 2007.  In an appeal of the 8 July judgment he filed with the Court of Appeal earlier this week, Siemer’s grounds included the judges’ ‘utter failure’ to cite the injunction terms supposedly breached, as well as any words or phrases on the website which are alleged to be in breach.    Read more

NZ Vaccine Brochure Fails to Provide Information on Dangers of Vaccination

25 June 2008, by Clare Swinney

This week a brochure entitled: “Is your child safe? Information on vaccination” arrived inside one of the free newspapers in my region, in Northland.

The 16-page booklet contained a number of graphic photos of children with disfiguring diseases and statements in coloured boxes, including: “Having the vaccine is several thousand times safer than having the disease the vaccine protects against, ” as well as information on “What is a Pandemic? ” Unfortunately, this brochure provided only one side of the story, the scaremongering one that suits the drug companies, while failing to address the many very serious issues related to vaccine safety.


Under the heading “Influenza” it stated: “Outbreaks of the “Flu” occur in New Zealand every year from May to October and kill at least 400 annually.” But is this correct? The figure of 400 seems oddly high for a country with a population of only around 4.2 million. I phoned up to ask the office that released the booklet where this figure had come from, but am still waiting for an answer two days later.

An article posted on Dr Mercola’s website mentioned that the flu deaths in the US have been grossly exaggerated to increase vaccines sales. Specifically, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) had claimed that there were 36,000 deaths from the flu for 2002, while a more comprehensive report showed that in reality there were only 736 for that year, [1, 2]. How did the CDC get from 753 flu deaths to its statement that 36,000 flu deaths occurred annually? By combining flu deaths with pneumonia deaths.

Also, while the brochure stated that flu shots are free to those over 65 years of age, it did not mention that there is significant evidence to indicate that there is no corresponding decrease in death rates in this group. According to a 2007 review in the Lancet medical journal, no studies have conclusively proven that flu shots prevent flu-related deaths among the elderly and some of the support for this practice is based on flawed data, [3,4,5].

Furthermore, there was no mention that there is evidence which links flu shots to Alzheimer’s Disease, [6] . Dr Hugh Fudenberg, the world’s leading immunogeneticist, [7] who has close to 850 papers in peer review journals, has stated that if an individual has had 5 consecutive flu shots between 1970 and 1980 – the years studied – their chances of getting Alzheimer’s, is 10 times higher than if he/she had one, 2 or no shots and said he believed that this was due to the mercury and aluminium that is in every flu shot.

Whilst there is clear evidence to show a vaccine-autism link, this was not canvassed in the booklet, instead the matter was swept under the carpet. It offered: “One study claimed the MMR vaccine could cause Autism. All but one of the researchers have now withdrawn their claims against the vaccine.” Even, Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain has weighed in on this debate and said on the campaign trail in late-February that “there’s strong evidence” that a preservative in vaccines is fuelling the dramatic rise in autism, [8]. Dr. Boyd Haley, who testified before Congress as one of the leading experts in the US on the effects of the mercury in vaccines, has reported that his research had led him to conclude that some children are genetically predisposed to storing mercury in their brains and that the cumulative effect of this leads to neurological disorders, including autism, [9].

To listen to Dr Boyd Haley talk about mercury toxicity and autism, go here:

More alarmingly still, the brochure has a section on “The Wart Virus and Cancer” which stated that: “Two vaccines are now available: Glaxo SmithKline vaccines protects against HPV 16 and 18 and Merck vaccine protects against HPV 6, 11, 16 & 18.” For those who didn’t know, Merck’s HPV vaccine has been associated with thousands of adverse reactions and been linked to a number of deaths, [11]. Worse still is that this suffering may all have been for nothing, as FDA documents have revealed that the FDA has been aware that the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) has no direct link to cervical cancer, [12].

One of Merck’s top scientist, Dr. Maurice Hilleman, who developed the Mumps, Rubella and Measles vaccines, himself has stated: “Vaccines are the bargain basement technology of the 20th century” and during the same interview, which is online in the documentary by Dr Len Horowitz – ‘In Lies We Trust,’ he admits that Merck has been injecting cancer viruses (SV40 and others) into millions of vaccine recipients, [13]. Yes, that’s right – go and hear Dr Hilleman for yourself here:

To conclude, while the booklet may help garner revenue for vaccine makers, it has not acknowledged the potential cost to the recipients of their products and if anything leaves one to question what the intended purposes of being vaccinated really are.
