A Bombshell Ruling

A bombshell ruling from the High Court, unless appealed, opens the door to tribal control of New Zealand’s entire foreshore and seabed. It represents a major setback for those who believe the country’s coastline and Territorial Sea should be owned by no-one and protected by the Crown for the benefit of all.

Notes on the Judgment of Churchman J. in the case of Re Edwards.

At the heart of the judge’s reasoning is the notion that “Tikanga”, a partly spiritual partly cultural concept comprising a number of strands of behaviour by which it is now said that Maori society ordered its affairs in times past can somehow translate to rules of law relevant to the multi-ethnic, sophisticated, and complex society which New Zealand now is.

The Tide is Turning

What has been described as a “covert 20-year plan to establish Maori sovereignty” is now being rolled out by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern under the guise of a blueprint for the implementation of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

Are you OK with two governments under tribal rule?

Are you OK with a radical plan for two governments in New Zealand, one for Maori and one for everyone else, to be up and running within the next 19 years? With Nanaia Mahuta at the helm, the plan is being slipped into the system, under the radar.

Threatening Our Future

Are we now at a point where our international alliances are turning East instead of West? If that’s not the intention, it may well be the outcome. And what do we make of the Minister’s comment that “indigenous values and the Treaty of Waitangi would be woven into foreign policy decision making”?

The Darkening Clouds of Totalitarianism

Under her controlling regime, Jacinda Ardern is planning to not only take away our right to criticise others, but also our right to criticise her and her Party. Including ‘political opinion’ as a protected characteristic in hate speech laws puts New Zealand on a course to become the North Korea of Oceania.

Can The State Pull The Lone Wolf Terrorist’s Teeth?

Punished, But Not Prevented: Though bitterly contested by those firmly convinced that the Christchurch Mosque Shootings represent something more than the crime of a Lone Wolf terrorist, the Royal Commission’s finding that no state agency could have prevented Brenton Tarrant from carrying out his deadly intent – except by chance – is correct.

Defending Our Democracy

Kiwis have a choice – do we continue down Jacinda Ardern’s path to a future where race is weaponised, democracy is undermined, and tribalism is empowered, or should we take a stand and protect our democracy from those seeking to destroy it.

Time to Push Back

Today, the elite minority of the Maori 15% of the country’s population seeks 50%, or more, of power over the majority 85% of the population. All of these manifestations are glaring Kiwis in the face, and many are now aware of the danger but are unsure of what to do.

The End of Democracy

Without any mandate from New Zealanders, the Ardern Government has decided to turn this symbolic Indigenous Rights Declaration into an action plan for our country. Her ultimate goal is to elevate Maori tribal leaders to the status of a ruling aristocracy. Representing 15 percent of the population, they will exercise 50 percent of the Government’s decision-making power and control the vast economic resources that would accompany such a role.
