New Zealand has finished voting in LOCAL BODY ELECTIONS



If you want a metaphor from popular culture watch Divergent in which good people whose profession is to protect society get injected and become compliant oppressors.

Stuff newspaper, in conjunction with sophisticated websites and government-funded scientists, led the campaign charge and sought to identify and publicly attack any candidates who had safety concerns. 

The most revealing part of these attacks was the selection of the candidates’ personal interests which apparently should disqualify them from seeking office. These included:

  • Knitting
  • Yoga
  • Wellness
  • Freedom
  • Human rights
  • Free speech
  • Permaculture
  • Home gardening
  • Crochet
  • Adverse effects
  • Herd immunity
  • Lab leak theories
  • Social media
  • Natural products
  • Meditation
  • Dairy farming
  • Protest
  • Sharing links
  • Oh yes, and they threw in FB friendship with myself

There is even a hotlink button to anonymously dob in colleagues and report misinformation to the police and other government bodies including an emergency report team. Instructions encouraged you to report lawyers, health professionals, teachers, and worksafe breeches.

One of the principle advocates of Ardern’s biowave politics is a newly minted PhD and expert on, you guessed it—disinformation, who, as reported by Stuff, has the incredible distinction of writing ‘a million words’. Yes, a whole million of them.

According to some words, the principal danger of the above interests was that they all lead, after about a year, to a desire to replace democracy with far right extremism and eventually ‘war’. Dangerous Stuff!! (Warning: they might have got some words confused here.)

On a serious note, how could anyone imagine that a political movement can be built around an ineffective and risky biotech intervention? Well apart from Jacinda Ardern of course… Wait a minute, let’s just add Justin Trudeau. That’s it right? Of course, there’s Joe Biden…. I could go on couldn’t I? Covid vaccination doesn’t make you gullible does it? It couldn’t possibly.

Don’t worry though, if Ardern has her way on the global stage we will never know what happened. Knitting needles, crochet hooks, and yoga mats will disappear overnight, and health food stores will close their doors. They will all be erased from our internet history and excluded from printed books (if anyone is still taught to read).

Jacinda Ardern is apparently a scion of Klaus Schwab and a champion of that old saw of dictators—if you keep saying the same thing often enough it should stick, no matter how batty it is.

If I was Klaus, I would be very careful of tying my boat to Ardern’s. Labour didn’t do too well in the elections, there are far too many knitters in New Zealand. Or is that nutters? Some newspapers and political pundits seem unable to distinguish one from the other.

Each of you, for varying reasons, has won the office of either mayor or councillor, hopefully with the intention to represent your region to the best of your ability.

It is a role that comes with public attention —probably this term more than most, for there have been too many incursions into councils by national and global politics with agendas that don’t match the wishes of those you are there to represent. Government-sponsored mainstream media has muscled in too, which has further muddied the waters. They feted the “approved” candidates and embarked on a witch-hunt of others who didn’t fall into line with government opinion. They moved from reporting the facts to giving opinions and pronouncing judgement.

That didn’t go well for them, particularly when they attempted to slur helpful groups like Voices For Freedom (VFF), who hundreds of thousands of Kiwis trust — and for good reason. Although, contrary to what media shouted, VFF didn’t endorse candidates for the recent elections. Instead, VFF, and also the Taxpayers Union, provided helpful tools that illustrated where most candidates stood on key issues in a clear and concise way (yes/no responses) that was missing in mainstream media reports.

So, now you are stepping into the arena, perhaps for the first time, or as a veteran, but as the mayor, or a councillor, for your region. Will you be swayed by the strong current of media-sponsored opinion? Or will you stand for the people and their wishes? Were you financially assisted with your campaign? If so, have you told the voters what obligations you have to your sponsors? They need to know. Be up-front. Voters appreciate that.

Will you take the path of least resistance and promote the agendas of international and global interests, or will you follow what you know in your heart to be right and refuse to go along with anything that compromises democracy, and relentlessly stand up for the wishes of the people? If you see mandates from government ordering you to implement policies that your ratepayers and residents are unaware of, will you enlighten them? Will you bring it out into the open? You should. It is your duty to do so.

In recent years, the majority of New Zealanders have shown little interest in voting. In the 2019 Local Body elections just a dismal 42.2% voted.

Have you ever wondered why?

Some have given up because, no matter who wins, they feel they are no longer heard or represented. They feel disenfranchised. There have been too many pre-election assurances where candidates promised the world, yet when settled into their seats, the lofty promises became a vague memory in the minds of their representatives for a variety of reasons, but none that excuse not keeping ones word to those they are there to represent.

Voters want representation on their behalf, and promises kept, or disclosure of what is blocking their councillors from fulfilling their promises. They also rely on the key promise: That you’re there to represent them rather than the wishes of a sponsor, Labour, or any other political party, and certainly not any off-shore cabal, or big business. The Local Government Act 2002, section 10 (1) backs this stance.

You are understood by the voters to be there for no-one, but the people you represent and who pay your wages. Anything else is surely a misrepresentation?

Kiwis today have valid concerns with council that need to be addressed. It may be a good time to look at some they have raised, so you’re able to keep them foremost in your mind throughout your term as their representative:

THE THREE WATERS GRAB: That’s the one where the government plans to take/steal our local ratepayer-funded and fully paid-up water infrastructure from each region, without our agreement, throw councils a paltry donation worth nowhere near the true value, and allege the ratepayers “still own it” yet not permit them to have any say. The proposal attempts to create a terrifying four or five-layered bureaucratic system where unelected officials lord over our water and charge unaffordable fees, with zero rates reduction that is already meant to cover water. Even worse, there may be plans to sell it off-shore, further reducing our independence and increasing debt. New Zealanders all over the country have marched against it, signed petitions against it and said a resounding NO to it. They were promised it would not go ahead without their consent. Another lie. New Zealanders have told you where they stand on this issue and they expect you to deliver a resounding NO on it. If you don’t, you shouldn’t be in council, for you’re not representing the people.

RATES: Mostly, ratepayers are OK with paying reasonable rates for services, but they are not OK on councils recklessly running up deficits and escalating rates to unmanageable proportions with impunity. In some areas the rates have become unaffordable, particularly with escalating costs for those on modest incomes where their property has increased in value, but they’re receiving the same council services (or less) as they were over 30 years ago. This sort of trouble often occurs if there are other undisclosed parties at the shoulder of councillors, exerting undue influence on them to incorporate the wishes (and spending) of political parties, or global cabals, that are not in the best interests of our regions. As new agendas roll out without the agreement of the ratepayers, correspondingly, the costs, rates and rents increase out of control.

Recently, to many, it has felt that the councils have deserted the wishes of the ratepayers and instead followed the orders of a government that has betrayed Kiwis by moving in concert with the plans of the World Economic Forum (WEF) and other global organisations like the UN and WHO, to name a few. This information is available on their respective websites.

They want to create what they term as either the Fourth Industrial Revolution, the Great Reset, Agenda 2030, or the New World Order — call it what you will — with resultant collapsed economies, inflation, escalating costs, along with councils becoming insolvent by having to borrow too much money to comply. The “Fourth Industrial Revolution” contains horrific ideas, where they state they want to “change our very idea of what it means to be human”. By employing genetic editing and neuro-technological brain enhancement, one of the official advisors to Schwab, Dr Yuval Harari, goes so far as to say that they now have the technology of “hacking into the brain” and in an interview he explains with glee how free-will and the human spirit will no longer exist. He said it. He is talking about you and your freewill and spirit, too. But it is your job to stand for the people, not such depravity. You may think that has nothing to do with council, but the Auckland Council, in glossy PR terms, already advertises the Fourth Industrial Revolution on its website. Isn’t that infiltration?.

Well they can take that ideology, along with their crickets, and stuff it up their jumpers. We do not consent and neither should you if you are there as you should be — to represent those who voted for you. If everyone all over the world stood up, then these threats to life and liberty would be over tomorrow, for that would be seven billion standing up and politely saying no.

There is something in the human spirit that will survive and prevail, there is a tiny and brilliant light burning in the heart of man that will not go out no matter how dark the world becomes. — Leo Tolstoy

Nature has a perfect blueprint. We need to protect and nurture that, not destroy it in the name of ‘progress’ so some megalomaniac billionaires who think they own the world can destroy the human spirit and the essence of life itself —that God-given miraculous magic that makes life beautiful — that IS life.

If you’ve never heard of such plans, then you urgently need to do some genuine research, for you are there to represent the local people in your area and you’ll be unable to do that without the knowledge of what is intended, so you can do your best to protect our local regions.

HIDDEN INFLUENCES are a key reason why voters don’t bother to vote, as these powers seem to increasingly call the shots and order councils about (via a complicit government) without regard to who the councils are meant to be serving. Why does New Zealand have a Local Government NZ (LGNZ) group that all councils have to pay to be part of, especially when LGNZ seems little more than a mouthpiece for a government with an off-shore agenda. Look it up and judge for yourself. Listen to Keith Bennett who is standing for mayor in Upper Hutt. Please, correct me if this is wrong, but he surely seems to tell it like it is.

Voters didn’t ask for this. For ratepayers and residents to be forced to pay our councils to belong to a group that hammers in the policies of political off-shore groups, through a government that has sold us out? No locals voted for the LGNZ, or these off-shore groups, so what business do they have meddling in local affairs or ordering Kiwis about? Again, Keith Bennett explains this in his speech for election and indicates that the situation is even worse, with off-shore interests already controlling our councils through LGNZ and government, mandating councils to bring in policies from off-shore cabals that are not in the interests of ratepayers and residents in the various regions. If you know of these mandates you have a duty to advise those you are saying you represent.

LGNZ allege they are: “Local democracy Vision and Voice”. Says who? They haven’t asked the ratepayers for their opinion on anything. The Auckland Council already advertises the “Fourth Industrial Revolution”. They describe it with lashings of PR and in more palatable terms, but it doesn’t appear to contradict the intentions of the nightmare plans of the WEF and Dr Yuval Harari. The Timaru Council courageously withdrew from LGNZ as it wasn’t in the best interests of those they represented. All councils should.

These seem to be some of the reasons that rates continue to spiral out of control, with council spending countless amounts of money in meetings with bodies like LGNZ that seek to transfer the power from the local councils and make them spend money on these other projects. The result is that more is rammed through, at great cost, on what the locals don’t want while neglecting what they do want.


  • Our democracy held sacrosanct.
  • Councils free of infiltration by others seeking to force through agendas that the people have never agreed to. We don’t want the agendas of an off-shore group of billionaires who set themselves up as an “elite” taking it upon themselves to tell the rest of us, through both sides of the government, what to do and how to design our cities and seem little more than thinly veiled attempts to control every aspect of our lives.
  • Our Bill of Rights enshrined and untouchable, locally, nationally and internationally.
  • A cap on rates. They continue to rise, providing more of what we don’t want and less of what we do. Enough.
  • Clean unpolluted, unchlorinated artesian (in Christchurch) water, free of enforced mass medication in the form of fluoride that has been internationally proven to lower the IQ and cause health defects. There is fluoride in toothpaste and tea. Far cheaper to sponsor toothpaste (that even carries a warning about ingesting fluoride) instead of further polluting the water and causing major problems for those with kidney disease.
  • No projects that incur unaffordable debt and no blowout budget projects that seek to fast-track our councils into insolvency and aren’t in the best interests of the people.
  • Clean beaches free of sewerage froth, depending on which way the wind is blowing. We want to be able to walk on our beaches without toxic froth and without being attacked by out-of-control unleashed dogs who leave droppings.
  • Farmers farming without a stranglehold of regulations that make it impossible to farm and provide us with food.
  • No further farmland being ruined by mass tree planting.
  • No ridiculous new concocted “emergencies” that strangle our ability to remain self-sufficient through suppressive one-world governmental controls.
  • A stadium (Christchurch) or any public infrastructure that doesn’t cripple ratepayers through years of subsequent debt. It is ridiculous to be spending $880 million on a stadium in the middle of Christchurch where councils want people to live.
  • Roads fixed once and properly. Enough of the ludicrous speed limits that reduce traffic to a crawl. That doesn’t fix the road toll, it simply seeks to control, frustrate drivers and gather more revenue.
  • Roads in towns free of obstacle courses and works constantly causing traffic jams, and free of an over-abundance of city plantings and free of cycle lanes as wide as a vehicle lane taking up access for cars and car parks, (all part of the WEF/UN Agenda) and free of a plethora of yellow ‘no-parking’ lines liberally dotted everywhere. (Since the earthquakes, many Christchurch voters have an abhorrence of car-parking buildings). Not everyone can sail into town on a bike. The main cities have traditionally been market towns. People cannot bike from the country into the city to pick up supplies and balance them on their handle-bars for a four-hour cycle home. For city-dwellers, there are parents, grandparents, the elderly, the infirm, the disabled, trades-people, and those with large parcels to collect and deliver. Kayaks are difficult to transport on bikes, too. Common-sense needs to be employed.
  • Simple street lights without surveillance cameras 24/7 and without 5G, that has been proven seriously detrimental to health.
  • A rates reduction rather than a decoration of pedestrian crossings and pavements.
  • A rates reduction rather than costly flags throughout the city announcing spring, summer, autumn or winter We know what season it is.
  • Our buildings free from a proliferation of soulless images on the walls of buildings that mean nothing. Maybe set aside a specific area for this if you must, but plastering it everywhere lowers the tone of our once-beautiful cities and gives the appearance of a graffiti-strewn city with no spirit.
  • More planting of life-giving trees and gardens in cities instead of a proliferation of sculptures dotted about with cheap-looking multi-coloured seats with costly hand-tiled pavements that require expensive upkeep. Trees offer shade on a hot day. They take up carbon and provide life-giving oxygen in a city environment. They provide a balm of sanctuary and comfort, give homes and shelter for birds and they don’t cost a fortune to clean every year. Another ratepayer saving. We want gardens, too. They lift the heart and create music within the soul. Perhaps create a privately sponsored sculpture-garden, but ratepayers shouldn’t have to pay for that.
  • Our pioneers acknowledged and respected for their courage, hardiness and endeavour, who, like the earliest of immigrants, came to New Zealand with little, but created the foundations of our cities through hard work and endeavour.
  • Local libraries that carry a wide variety of books for all, local swimming pools where families can freely go to have fun and enjoy, without rules so tight that they close instead.
  • Our councils for the people, by the people.

Most of all, we want you to represent the people who pay you to do that and be accessible.

Stand strong and true.

Stand up to government if they are ordering you about, while they hide in the shadows.

Be your best self.

Don’t cower in the face of undue pressure to do otherwise.

The torch of trust has been passed to you.

Travel the right path, letting nothing dissuade you from your duty to represent the people.

You’re now on the frontline.

Stand for the people. Be strong. Be true. Be courageous.

And may your light shine brightly and never dim.

We wish you well.
