Fake History

Through the unprecedented denigration of Captain Cook and other historical leaders as “white supremacists”, and the malicious vilification of the colonisation process, the scene is now being set for the next phase of this power grab: the indoctrination of children through fake history.

Taking Control Of The Nation's Story

What Maori nationalism seeks is a reversal of political fortunes: the creation of an Aotearoa-New Zealand in which Pakeha will no longer call the shots. A radical revision of New Zealand and, indeed, of global history, is crucial to achieving this political reversal.

Questions of Credibility

Speculative technology is no substitute for an established and lucrative industry that is being destroyed by government policy. Like the oil industry, the justification for their attack on farmers is the Prime Minister's fixation with being seen as a global leader in climate change.

Governor William Hobson - New Zealand's Forgotten Hero

There can be no doubt that British Royal Navy captain William Hobson is the founding father both of New Zealand as an independent sovereign nation and of Auckland as its greatest city.  No other person has so singularly influenced the course of modern New Zealand history.

Race-based Power and Influence

This whole crusade against Oranga Tamariki is a well-orchestrated campaign of gross misinformation that’s being driven by Maori leaders to try to shift public opinion to view the State as the villains in Maori child abuse statistics. Their aim is to force the Government to pass control of child protection to them.

A child’s ethnicity shouldn’t outweigh their safety

No abuse or re-abuse of children is acceptable. But the facts show that family members and parents posed the greatest danger to these victims. This suggests that where the state primarily fails is in poor decision-making and monitoring of risk. Which calls into question whether the very best interests of the child are being put first and foremost.

Private Property Rights Under Threat

A land protest near Auckland airport has serious implications for private property rights in New Zealand - if it is not handled properly by the Government.

Ihumātao reflects the Zeitgeist of 2019

The extraordinary Māori land protest at Ihumātao in Auckland is symbolic of our time. It is unlikely to have occurred, say, five years ago.

The Best Interests of the Child

Even though the evidence is overwhelming that child abuse most often occurs in single parent families on welfare, tragically, the State still continues to pay vulnerable young women with little education and few prospects, to have and raise children on their own. And the more children they have, the more money they receive.

New Zealand’s Maori Child Welfare Problem

In Canada we have settled into a stagnant pattern on Indigenous issues. Indigenous advocates argue for the continuation of the separatist status quo, but with more money and power for themselves. The chiefs’ main concern is to keep the money flowing. No politician dares to publicly oppose this separatist, racialized dystopia, and expose it for the nonsense that it is.
