“Has anyone provided proof of God’s inexistence? Not even close. Has quantum cosmology explained the emergence of the universe or why it is here? Not even close. Have our sciences explained why our universe seems to be fine-tuned to allow for the existence of life? Not even close. Are physicists and biologists willing to believe in anything so long as it is not religious thought? Close enough. Has rationalism and moral thought provided us with an understanding of what is good, what is right, and what is moral? Not close enough. Has secularism in the terrible 20th century been a force for good? Not even close, to being close. Is there a narrow and oppressive orthodoxy in the sciences? Close enough. Does anything in the sciences or their philosophy justify the claim that religious belief is irrational? Not even in the ball park. Is scientific atheism a frivolous exercise in intellectual contempt? Dead on.”

Watch this great video (below)
The above pic is part of a Full Front Page Propaganda Piece by the New Zealand Herald , that not only captures Jacinda Ardern’s Outrageous claims that it is not the governments Rapacious taxes that are responsible for New Zealanders being ‘Fleeced’ at the gas pumps… as she jumps on that Tired old, yet faithful Hobby horse … blaming Greedy Fuel companies… and then following up with threats of new legislation.
All this dishonesty is Evil enough, yet if that is where it stopped the only thing that could be said about the article was that the Herald was simply reporting on Arderns lame denials, and subversion … yet that is far from what happened on October 8 2018… see the pic below.
The Herald engaged in outright Propaganda of its own… of the very worst sort… showing that it is far from impartial and that it may as well be written from an office in Arderns spin doctor department!
This absolutely shocking Pie Graph (above) appeared in the same *Front page* expose… which is so distorted that even a mediocre mathematician like myself cant help but spot glaring falcehoods!
The most Obvious one being that it pretends that 94.3 cents is well over 50% of $2.45.9 !!!!
The 94 cents is the actual cost of the one liter of petrol, leaving a remainder of just over $1.51 of Taxes and Fuel company overheads and profits.
By grossly misrepresenting this component (in white)… for political ends, they could then visually minimise the truth about how much of the price of fuel is taken in Taxes (Levies are just taxes too!)
Thus the Herald pie graph grossly under proportions the real amount the Government gets… esp noticeable with the segment that is supposed to show the 15% GST component (in Green)
I have worked out that the segment the herald attributes to ‘GST’ fits into the pie graph almost 23 times! when if this segment was honest it would be a portion that ought to only fit in 7.667 times!
This is a distortion of the truth in favour of the lies of Jacinda Ardern of a magnitude of nearly 300% !!!!
This is Barefaced dishonesty by New Zealand’s Largest Newspaper!
Then just step one day ahead… to today… October 10, 2018… page 3 and we read an article baced upon the Opposition party Leader Simon Bridges who is trying to make as much political capital from the public outcry against Arderns new fuel Taxes by calling for them to be scrapped… and this article has another graph… yet conveniently for the Herald… its not a Pie graph but a bar graph (see below)
Now this one at a glance is far more honest than the one they ran only the day before on the front page…. firstly we can see that the 94.3 cent component is rightly proportioned at well less than 50% of the total cost… and ‘Hello’… the real component being fleeced from us by the government is nearly 50% of the total price!
leaving a mere 33.9 cents for Feul companies overheads and profit … a proportion of the total cost being a mere 1/7th of the whole!
Now The Bullshit we are being fed by Jacinda Ardern and her sycophants at the herald is a mountain high and is despicable!
what bothers me the most is that this blatant dishonesty at the Herald may not be picked up by uncritical readers… thus perpetuating the lie that The Government is not to blame for the suffering and growing poverty in New Zealanders… and that its all because of greedy corporations that need more legislation!
Patent falsehoods for despicable political ends!
Remember Ardern’s Election promise “no new taxes”… Yeah Right!
This is outrageous!
She is unfit to govern… National is no better.
New Zealand desperately needs a New Libertarian Party… and New/ better Newspapers…|
The New Zealand Herald is corrupt and has failed in its duty… the roll of ‘the Free press’ is supposed fulfill as a vanguard of freedom in an enlightened society.
Heads should Roll!
And to think the world swoons at Arderns feet!
Satan Laughing spreads his wings.
And you wonder why poverty is growing in this country!
Had enough yet?
Update: 10-12-18… I should have mentioned the fact that Ardern has an even more nefarious ends in mind she is not talking about… she… and her Green Party coalition partners are part of the Global Cabal who want to Ban Motorcars and force people into State transportation systems under their Machiavellian ‘Climate change’ Agenda.
So secretly she *wants* the people to hurt… she *wants* people to not to be able afford to run private motor vehicles…
This is a hot topic at the UN… where she loves to grandstand… with her Baby!
She is a Fraud and a tyrant.
Poverty is growing in New Zealand.
Suicide is too.
Financial stress is destroying families.
With the heavy oppression I face from the Tax department, only two things prevent me from becoming a dangerous enemy of the state… rather than a passive victim.
1. My responsibility as a husband and Father to put their immediate well-being ahead of my need for vengeance.
2. My Christian faith that abhors violence… even against those who deserve it… yet the restraints of these two factors have limits… I ask myself at what point does it become the Christian and Fatherly Duty to take up arms and wage war against a tyrannical State?
Anyone here remember the words of the American Declaration of Independence and why America was born?
How many struggling families receive Threatening letters about arbitrary ‘Debts’ from The New Zealand tax department each week?
How many self employed people are bankrupted by the IRD… or loose everything they have worked years to gain?
There is a crisis going on!
What will it take to stop the Legalised Robbery?
The Government makes Organised crime look like amateurs!
So far my Activism has been Peaceful and reason based… like the Gospel… an appeal to the hearts and minds of my fellow citizens… Yet the Jackboots of the state are kicking at my door…. like Extortionate Gangsters.
They are destroying the lives of the virtuous and hard working.
Yet the *real sad truth is* it is *you*…. my fellow countrymen who continue to vote for the Rapacious Extortioners… and their ever growing addiction to expropriation.
You vote for the Theft… You support the Media personalities who encourage the IRD to take more… and more…
How many more homeless people will have to die in gutters? how many suicides and broken families will loose everything before you realise that it is the Jack booted Government *itself* that is by far the greatest threat to your lives and family?
Every Tax hike pushes more Families towards crisis.
Nonetheless like a runaway juggernaut the Government and Councils are having meetings about the country scheeming more ‘innovative’ ways to take our money for their whack schemes!
Tax is Crack Cocaine to Socialist addicts like Ardern.
The pic above is the sort of ‘editorial’ that passes for wisdom in New Zealand when it is nothing short of absolute falcehoods and propaganda designed to ‘soften up’ the masses into accepting new and higher Taxes!
They peddle the lie that higher taxes will bring greater prosperity!
They peddle that great Lefty lie that those with property have not contributed ‘their share’ to society!
Tolerance towards this sort of sycophancy in the media in New Zealand is outrageous!
How Journos and editors can get away with such one eyed lies is a testament to how lobotomized our population is(thanks state education).
The so called ‘Free Press’ have failed in their Duty as the vanguard against tyranny.
Read : Lost Plot. World Press Freedom Day.
We are expected to maintain composure while being fleeced… to suffer in silence… to maintain the Delusions that higher Taxes are Good, Justified, enlightened, when in reality by far greatest cause of Poverty in this country is Socialist over-government and heavy taxation.
No matter how hard I work… or how many thousands of dollars I withhold from my family and give to the beast… no matter how many Holidays I forego… They still send me threatening letters telling them I owe them tens of thousands more….
How many of you are working yourselves to death… forego Medical attention for yourself… yet suffer sleepless nights, and whose only Forlorn hope is to win lotto?
They take the Joy out of life and keep families on the edge of poverty at all times. (A Habitat of Envy and want under which white horse riding socialist Scammers flourish… )
For the Grace of God People…. Wake up!!!!
Stop worshiping evil Idiots like Jacinda Ardern!
The Labour Party is not the friend of the worker!
She is *not* a heroic leader… she is a Thief and a bully.
She’s a sexist, Racist hypocrite…
Why she (and her ilk) are in power is because *her* sexism… *her* Racism… *her* hypocrisy… and *Her Economic delusions* all are of the popular variety.
She’s a Retard…. Captaining a ship of Fools.
Of course the problem is bigger than Jacinda’s Regime… Its Ideological and systemic… she’s just the latest Demagogue to wield the flail.
The real problem for Modern civilization is in the unfathomable void… the monumental sheepish ignorance of our systemically lobotomised voting populations.
You Useful Idiots still believe socialists care?
What sort of Slavery are we bequeathing to our children?
Speak now or forever hold your piece… pun intended.
Politically Homeless Libertarian Slave of the State.
Apparently its Census night!
Apparently we are all supposed to be good little slaves and happily pass on all our personal information to the Leviathan… You know the story… if you have not done anything wrong… if you are not a member of any politically incorrect minority… you have nothing to fear….
The right to privacy is sooo unimportant anyway.
Nanny State knows best!
And you will be helping the Beast decide how to spend all the money they have extorted from you at the point of a gun… Because the Beast cares for you… children.
So It would be very naughty if any of you refuse to Comply…because *compliance is everything* ….that’s the most important question at stake… making sure you know whose Boss!
What value to you place on your own dignity as a free person?
I for one will not be visiting the NZ census online page.
By now you are probably aware about how Formula 1 racing has arbitrarily decided to cut the jobs of all the beautiful Grid Girls that have added Glamour to the events and gone a long way to spreading some of the wealth and prestige into the feminine demographic out of a Male dominated industry. (sport)
Just think about all the hypocrisy involved in that these woman all got the sack for doing nothing wrong!
If this had been *any other* industry other than the beauty industry, there would have been a humingus moral outrage!
Yet because this happened to *This demographic* all the wowzers applaud it…. Shamefully pandering to whacko neo-feminism that is sweeping the globe like an influenza of the mind.
Neo-feminism is *Not* like ‘classical feminism’…. this liberalist craze is not about equality for woman but hatred of men and persecution of Beautiful woman out of envy.
There has been a lot of heated argument on social network over this, The media cashing in on the sensation, with many men like myself spitting tacks that the Neo-feminists have yet again been successful in wreaking something we enjoy, followed by the lame and hypocritical responses of Emasculated liberal men who hate themselves, and all the Nannas want to turn the whole world into a safe space for the delicate.
They blatantly deny that this is Rabid Political correctness run amok … they emphatically state its not another raid by ‘The Fun Police’ …. On Stuff….as if such fraudulent denials can somehow hide the truth about what is going on!
My reply was … ” Ummm it *is PC gone mad*, and it is the Fun Police’s fault, and sadly Freedom is loosing the war against the hypocrites.
Neo-feminism hates beautiful woman… everybody know this.”
Here some typical dialogue that I have been involved with… (I have saved them here because there is every chance that the facebook police will delete my arguments and throw me in Facebook jail for daring to have a contrary view to that of Zukkerburger and his Pinko minions. Facebook has become one of the worst engines of Propaganda for the Liberal agenda!)
Nanna apologist 1: “I’ve had to listen to too many gross comments from men at these events that makes my daughters and I feel uncomfortable and unsafe. When I was younger I got fully harassed at a speedway race when the promo girls came out.”
Tim Wikiriwhi: “Well you have to harden up and prepare your daughters for a hell of a lot more than guys talking about hot woman if they are going to survive in this world… and respect the freedom of others… because you dont have the right to think of such places as Kindy garden.
And that is the problem with Liberals trying to turn the whole world into a ‘safe space’ for Babies!
You dont allow any space for Men to be Men… and you think we have to all behave like we live in a giant kindy garden… sorry thats tyranny.”
The hypocrisy of Liberal Hollywood with respect to these issues Beggars belief!
Self hater Male 1: “Lay off the sauce, Tim. Men have no more right to public spaces than women. Perhaps you could go back to your “kindy garden” and learn about sharing??”
Self hater Male 2: “Tim… The reason why there is no “space for men to be men” is because EVERYWHERE is their space. If it is something to claim, a man has made claim to it.”
Tim Wikiriwhi: “Rubbish! Men are the most harassed Sex in western civilisation… accused of ‘Rape culture’ just for whistling at a Babe… not that the babes complain about it… its all the monsters who *never get whistled at doing all the complaining!
It was certainly not the Grid girls who complained about men being men, or about the glamorous well paying Jobs they had until the wowzers rained on the parade.
It’s guys like you who ‘Apologize for being a Man’ who ought to be ashamed of how you pander to the feminist bigotry!
I’m all for equality… yet thats not *special treatment*…. equality is being able to work in a workshop beside men… if you have the skills… yet not demanding they take down Calendars with babes on them… and no man would worry about them putting up calendars with hot guys on them…. *Thats equality*… not imposing your petty sensitivities every 5 seconds… thats being precious… and expecting to be treated like some delicate flower!
The video below shows how feminists are attacking Darts ‘walk on girls’
Todays ‘Fourth wave’ feminism is not about equal rights… its about Nut bar Liberals forcing their deranged ideas down everyone elses throats By countless new rules and regulations… and its evil and suffocating.
Listen to the words of a grid Girl (Link below)…. esp the part about how this sort of deranged submission to the Neo-feminist craze hurts woman and is *hypocritical* in the light of claims the movement seeks *Wage equality*… etc.
Here was a Job in which *Woman* clearly have the advantage over Men and shows what a joke the whole delusion that woman are somehow disadvantaged by systemic ‘patriarchal oppression’.
Feminists *cherry pic* certain occupations where they say they have found disparity (as if perfect symmetry in human demographics is even a rational ideal) yet not only do they ignore any statistics that clearly show men are at at a disadvantage… they actively work to destroy jobs like this that woman dominate… under the deranged idea that these woman are oppressed!
The entire edifice of Neo-feminism is founded upon vicious propaganda, and *Sexism* against Men and any woman whom like men and dont fit into the feminist framework of Man-hating victim.
Grid girl Giorgia Davis
Read what Grid Girl Gioria Davies has to say about losing the job she loved… from her Facebook page… Here
Gloating Liberal: ” Poor Tim. You sound so angry and having your perving curtailed.”
Tim Wikiriwhi: “I am not ashamed to be a man who likes beautiful woman.
I refuse to take on board any guilt trip about that… its natural and completely within the bounds of decency, in fact beauty is something that ought to be appreciated.”
Naive Male: “[Tim] Check out who owns F1 and who made this decision, you could not be more wrong.”
Tim Wikiriwhi: “Dont pretend this is not part of the whole wave of nutbar Liberalism! We see this crap going on across the board, in every industry… Its all related.
They are feeling the backlash of the hysteria around Weinstein and the ‘Me too’ movement…. full of hypocrites.”
And thats the truth!
This is nothing new… all predictable… all part of the surrender of Freedom and Mens’s rights to the Lunatic hysteria of Lefty Liberalism and Neo feminism.
We can be sure that they will attack cheer leaders in othe sports too!
The feminist movement that ones had noble ideals has been completely over run by whacko Man haters whose agenda is nothing short of absolute Sexist bigotry against men and sexy woman.
This is the nutbar movement that hangs giant Vaginas over their heads and parades down the street!
This is the movement that thinks calling themselves ‘Nasty woman’ and having blood tricking down between their thighs is a some sort of Bold stand for womans ‘Liberation’!
This is the perverse movement whose members bring Cookies to school for young children shaped like vaginas!
They are violent.
They act like a crazy mob!
They hate men and want them to die!
Biscuits provided by a whacko liberal mom to a 2nd grade class.
The truth is the War was won against woman’s oppression in the west a long time ago, yet the Liberals have no other modus opperandi but to play perpetual victims of the demographic they despise most… White Men.
It is frightening to realise that most of western civilisation is governed by Liberal Freaks who seek to make all this insanity offical doctrine… and Law.
It is frightening to realise that Men have been systematically driven out of the education systems and that these are now infested with whacko feminists and liberals who are not only teaching little girls and teens to be militantly neo-feminist, but are also torturing our boys… simply for being boys… whom they see as future ‘rapists and benefactors of the patriarchy’.
Schools are purposely disadvantaging our sons to try and hobble their ability to function in the future… socially engineering… an advantage for girls across the entire spectrum of society.
Our Law courts are heavily weighted against men and fathers.
Woman escape justice every day for their Violence and frauds committed against men!
Police refuse to charge woman for their lies and abuse.
Its an outrage!
And its why I am writing this blog, and why I have opposed Neo-feminism for years as a Moral Libertarian duty.
Those of you who think I am over reacting to this F1 decision are brain dead Zombies… oblivious to the magnatute of the Evil that is involved in all this.
Western civilisation is going down the toilet… and I for one will not cheer.
Now I am not a misogynist.
I respect woman, and I believe in their equal rights and liberties, yet these Neo-feminists are Dangerous and deranged, and their bigoted and hate filled militancy is absolutely frightening to behold and I fear for my Children’s future!
Our Sons will inherit an oppressive system, and our daughters will be brainwashed and not understand what the true virtues of femininity are!
This will only accelerate the collapse of Marriage, Family, and the home… to the misery of all.
I dont have any angst against ‘Big’ woman… or ‘plain’ woman… or woman past their prime, yet *Envy* is one of the most prevalent and base of human characteristics and these types are easily consumed with envy at the ‘sexual capital’ of young and sexually attractive woman, and how men swoon at their feet.
They try and pretend that there is something Evil about that to justify their outrageous jealousy and rage.
The side of Equality of rights and liberties is clearly on *my side* in this debate, and it is *I*… not the side of the ‘Fourth wave’ Neo-feminists who is speaking up for the rights of woman in these situations.
The woman’s whose rights I am defending just so happen to be the most gorgeous creatures on the planet who make the most of their Beauty… and I am defending them from all the fake feminism that is nothing but vile sexism cloaked under the garb of a liberation movement.
If there is ever a real alternative to Facebook where free-speech and equal rights for all prevails… I’m dumping facebook and heading there!
This is just a quick protest blog to highlight a clear case of Prejudice by Facebook whereby I was blocked from Posting, replying/communication for three days all because some Transgender did not like a joke I made on a Mushroom ID page!
For the record my Joke was thus…. On this Mushroom ID Page someone posted a pic of a Puffball and said that when they took the picture it ‘Poofed’ in their face.
They said “I hope the spores are not toxic and asked for an ID.
That is when I joked…. “It’s the deadly ‘Poof Face Fungus’ and that it turns it’s victims transgender!” 🙂
That was it.
The joke was silly… like jokes are yet it is clear that this person went out of their way to complain to facebook to get me ‘punished’… and that says a lot about how these Social Justice Warriors operate.
And FaKebook enables these types… so obviously Facebook has a clear prejudice…. Lefty Liberal AF! no surprise there!
Now my joke contained no profanities, and was getting laughs, yet even when I was about to hit ‘post’ I wondered how long it would be before some Purple Haired ‘Hero’ would complain… yet I hit send anyway… because it was after all just a joke… and it fitted the post… and to my way of thinking *Equal Rights and Liberties* means that we ought to be allowed to tell jokes about Transgenders as much as we tell them about any other demographic… such as jokes about Men, Woman, Bikers, Engineers, etc etc.
*That is what equality is about*
Yet what This Nasty little Queer expects… and what facebook clearly has an agenda for is not equality… But Prejudice in favour of Transgenders… against the rest of us!
Esp against anyone who disagree with the Transgender movement.
What sort of tyrannical world are these types trying to create by outlawing Jokes, humor, satire, ????
Of Course we know its open season on White males!
Many Famous comedians are aware of how dangerous and corrosive this Politically Correct attitude is against a free society.
^ It. I cant use its ‘preferred pronoun’ as who knows what ‘it’ is? You certainly cannot ‘assume their Gender’… so what do you do????
For the record while I do subscribe to the perfectly legitimate school of thought backed up by plenty of psychologists that Transgender-ism is both a Moral and mental health issue, as a Libertarian and christian, I do not hate them or wish them ill… though of course every time they get someone banned/ thrown off Facebook or anywhere else they do their demographic no favours but ferment animosity towards themselves.
I could not respond to my friends posts on important issues.
I could not respond to comments on my own posts.
I could not wish my friends ‘Happy birthday’.
I could not send prayers and positive vibs to sick children!
All because some little puffball could not take a joke!
These types are not satisfied with simply scrolling past… or even starting a debate… or even blocking you from their sight… no… they are hellbent on using any means at their disposal to *F@&# you up!
They want freedom for themselves and their Bigotry but hate Freedom for everyone else who disagrees with them.
And what is scary is that though I understand perfectly that as a private company Facebook has the right to set its own values and rules… that it clearly does not act fairly, or value Free-speech within reasonable Moderation!
It’s scary because Facebook dominates in the Global social media business and so has the ability to seriously handicap any persons internet life should Facebook decide to shut them down.
I investigated their ‘blocking system’ and it stated *There is no way to undo their Block!*… so there is no appeal against injustice!
They threaten you that if you get blocked several times your account may get closed down!
Again I dont have a problem with blatantly abusive and psychotic people being thrown out… yet I do see that The treat hangs over any Libertarian or christian, or anyone who may seek to tell jokes… or create satire about the Political agenda’s and Pet demographics of the Lefty Liberals running facebook.
I wrote a complaint about how I believe I was unjustly targeted by a malevolent political operator and that facebook functioned with prejudice… yet i wont hold my breath about facebook suddenly gaining a conscience and correcting their bias.
If there was some alternative of quality where better judgement by moderators was out there… I would Leave Facebook and go there, and I am sure there are millions of people who would do the same.
Surely there is some Geeks out there who want to get rich and can come up with decent competition to facebook????
Facebooks own behavior is generating an opportunity for competition via it’s unfairness and dissatisfaction.
Facebook is actually enabling Nasty Pettiness to prevail… instead of saying *Harden up Cupcakes*!
And a word of advise… If some purple hair SJW jumps on one of your posts to cry ‘oppression’ immediately go to their profile and hit *Block*.
That way if you are fast enough you have cut them out of your life *before* the dob you into the Gestapo.
If only I had done this myself, I would probably have saved myself from being thrown in FB Jail.
P.S If I disappear off Facebook it is because they have assassinated me.
Update…. The following appeared on my page 8-12-17
Calling Men ‘Scum’ or ‘Trash’ Is Now Hate Speech
“Facebook jailing” over mild insults shows how far “hate speech” policing has creeped—and the folly of actual laws against it
As a Man this does not impress me at all!
Facebook is out of control!
People should be allowed to express their opinions or else facebook becomes some sort of Prison.
This is not moderation… its treating adults like children.
This Is Politically Correct Tyranny.
I dont want to be shielded from hearing what people really think… and anyone who agrees with this cannot complain if they get ‘punished’ for speaking their own mind.
I myself got pinged for a lamo joke I made… If this carries on Facebook will be *only what facebook likes*… it wont be your social network anymore.
Update: 12-11-17… Here is another example that happened on a group I belong to…. After the Admins immediately deleted my post too… I quit the group… Losers.
Tim Wikiriwhi writes….
Hey Guys…. and Admin (Please let this post be discussed).
I would like to talk about a trend that is growing on Facebook, and that I just witnessed happen here on this page.
A person posted an about a famous pornstar and that she had aids… which was probably Fake news and a malicious rumor being spread on the net.
And My comment was that it is nasty to falsely defame people like that.
Next thing I see another member here (who I wont mention ) saying they were going to report the poster and called Admin to remove it.
Now this is becoming an all too common reaction by people to Facebook posts that they disprove of and it is turning facebook into a petty minded hell!
Even though I think the post was not accurate, and probably written by a bigoted hater designed to cause pain, there is no reason to assume the person who posted it here was intentionally part of the smear campaign and it is far more likely they posted it here either because they believed it was interesting (Dark) news or to get other peoples opinion about it.
It was almost immediately erased, even though it had generated an interesting discussion about whether or not people should share such rumors …. and so even though the post itself was dodgy… It added value by the discussion, and in my opinion the post should have been allowed to stand even just for the sake of the Rebuttals that were being added in the comments… and for the value of the discussion.
Yet now all that value has disappeared, and another facebook user has imposed their (Popular) view by force upon another unpopular view/question.
Having witnessed this, I immediately went to the person who called for the admin to jump on this post and Blocked them from reading my stuff, as i have been targeted by such people in the past for expressing view they did not like and I was banned for 3 days… which was a big pain in the arse… and facebook says that if you get too many complaints against you… they will close your page!
Talk about a malicious way to shut down people you disagree with!
So I do not want to run the risk that this same person will try and get my posts deleted, or even try and get me kicked off facebook… so I blocked them… for my own safety…. nor do I wish to associate with such intolerant people.
So at the end of the day This post is a call for people not to be so quick to call in the hounds on others even though you may disagree with what they have posted… If you Facebook to be a cool place where controversial things can be discussed.
If you dont like a Post, or a Joke, etc then you are free to make a critisism, or to simply scroll past… yet for goodness sake refrain from calling for peoples posts to get deleted, or for then to be throw out of a group… or to be ‘Officially’ jailed by facebook.
Think about the sort of person you are… a freedom lover… or a Bigot who only thinks their own opinions ought to be allowed to be discussed?
If freedom Prevails so too is the truth most likely to prevail.
If Censorship prevails and only The Popular Politically Correct views are allowed to stand… that is how Great popular delusions are maintained… progress is halted… and you have created a tyranny.
Below is a blog post I wrote yesterday about my experience of being ‘complained about’ because of a trivial joke I made…
Hero Christian Biker and NRA member Stephen Willeford.
We are a race of fallen beings occupying a world locked in a spiritual battle between Good and evil… this much is certain… and yet just as a person who is born blind cannot know the difference between night and day, so too many people are completely oblivious as to what is *Really going on* …oblivious to what it means to be moral free agents walking upon the Earth living out … and why there is Evil in the world.
Many People look at such evil events as happened in Texas… or having suffered some terrible injustice mistake these things as Proof that there is no such thing as divine justice… no real value or point to human existence or human suffering… and no code by which a person ought to live that may be used to distinguish what is Objectively good from what is evil.
The Darkness and nihilism seeps in.
Some souls… by the Grace of God are not beyond salvation, and though they may wander in darkness for much of their lives eventually they see the light and start to walk towards that light, others may get glimpses of that light… yet because they actually enjoy the darkness… or because they dont think they need the light… purposefully turn their backs.
And still some … because their hearts are filled with contempt and malice…and Ego… Become Evil personified… Monsters whose Evils are on such a scale that sickens all but the hardest of hearts… and blackest of souls.
It all comes down to Choice…. and faith.
This post is not going to expound on that theme to any great depth (I will attach links at the end), yet that opening paragraph had to be said to give context to the Horrific events of Terrorism going on all over the world as we speak, and in particular the Murder of 22+ Christians in a church in Texas by a psychotic Christian hating Atheist out on a personal vendetta… yet this Devil met his Nemesis in the Person of Stephen Willeford… a Christian Biker who rides with the Baptist Church… A man who ran out of his house in bear feet towards the sound of Gun fire while jamming a handful of rounds into the mag of his AR. (ArmaLite Rifle)
Evil Bastard Devin Kelley.
Where was God when all this was happening?…. mocks one of my atheist friends.
God sent one of his Christian soldiers into the nightmare… Stephen… a member of the NRA (an ex instructor)… knew what his Moral Duty was… he did not allow fear or concerns for his own safety be his dominating value, but his love of humanity… and this was an hour his moral weight was being tested… and in an exploit of bravery that is deserving of both Christian and Biker communities highest esteem … and in full accord with both fraternities Codes of conduct, this barefoot Christian Biker engaged the fully armored terrorist mass murderer in a close quarter gunfight and drove him from the scene… and from the testimony of the pursuit that he and another Brave man have retold… it is most likely that One of Stephen’s shots found its mark… The Terrorist crashing and dying a few minutes away from the scene.
Here we see two different world views… two different sets of values at play… One Full of Evil… the other Full of Good… and I feel sorry for anyone whose personal world views blind them to such Patently obvious and objective truths.
Do you think This atheist killer who took pleasure in slaughtering Christians in their place of worship expected to face Divine judgement for his crime?
Boy was he in for an unpleasant surprise!
And this is an important truth to appreciate… No Evil will go unrewarded.
God will judge us all.
Watch the Video interview below… All this is there… yet I wanted to make this Personal tribute to this Hero, and a short rebuttal to my Atheist friend who Mocks God’s existence because of the Evil choices Humans are free to make.
When Evil is at it’s worst… so too do the hero’s…. The best of Humanity ,,, among the most ordinary folk *also* come to the fore….
I must pay tribute to Peggy Lynn Warden
“SUTHERLAND SPRINGS, Texas — Among the horror of the worst church shooting in American history is the story of a woman who made a simple decision.
She would not let the gunman take her grandson.
Peggy Lynn Warden, 56, was among the 26 victims of the massacre at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, on Sunday. Her brother, Jimmy Stevens, said she used her body to shield her grandson, Zachary Poston, 18, when the gunfire erupted…”
This is what it means to be truly a moral and loving person…living in a spiritual realm where Morality really counts!
Anyone can feign being a good person when the going is easy… its when Evil is afoot that a persons Mettle is truly tested… their values shine forth.
Absolutely Essential principles were clearly demonstrated by these events.
What is needed to halt ‘Evil men with guns’… or rampaging Cars…etc *Is Good men with Guns*… and here we see why an AR is not as it is falsely called ‘An assault rife’ but a valuable too of Defense!
It was his AR that gave him the advantage he needed to drive off this Psycho in full battle dress… Kevlar Body armour and Helmet.. yet who only had a pistol, which though a lethal weapon is far harder to deliver accurate shots esp in the heat of battle.
It is also a testament to the Wisdom and justice of the second amendment right to bear arms… for self defense, as everybody know that the Nutbar Left… and their Political ambitions are to take away guns from law abiding citizens… esp the AR… and we clearly see there that Had not Stephen had both the means of defense and the willingness to risk his own life for others… that most likely more people would have died… and the purp may have even escaped… to rampage elsewhere… before the Police could intervene.
His truck was filled with guns and ammo.
Official reports however say his death was ‘self inflicted’… should we automatically accept this on the word of the Police? These days that is a dubious assumption! And from the preparedness and actions of this Evil Child-killing scumbag it is far more likely he would have tried to shoot it out to the bitter end…going down in a hail of bullets rather than cowardly ending his own life.
I think he was Dead before the cops arrived at the scene.
Johnnie_Langendorff… Drove his truck with Stephen Willeford in high speed pursuit of the killer.
People use Guns everyday in self defense in America yet as this goes against what the lefty media and Liberal agenda attacking the constitutional rights to bear arms these daily events don’t receive anywhere near the sensational and skewed Media reporting as happens when guns are used in mass killings.
Many innocent People are alive today… and many would be killers, rapists, etc are dead because of the Americans right to bear arms for their own defense… yet why is it when you try and communicate this with Sheeple who think guns are evil… all you get is a cross eyed dopey stare and a smirk?
Their anti-gun arguments are quite frankly infantile, on every level… and yet because of the prevailing numerical popularity of their mindset in countries like New Zealand there are Crime waves of armed Robbers robbing Dairies and Gas stations… Liquor store workers get bashed and murdered because the thugs know their victims will be defenseless… have been rendered ‘sitting ducks’… by the legislators… who then carry no remorse or responsibility for the injustice they are party to!
When governments criminalizes the right to self defense, and denies the right to bear the means to do so, good people become the prey of violent criminals… Like lambs to the slaughter…
Apart from the fact that we can attribute the rise of violent crime *directly* to Oppressive Nanny state laws like the war on drugs, alcohol and cigarette Tax hikes, and apart from the fact that the second amendment was written to guarantee that Evil oppressive Governments cannot lawfully dis-arm the people, the truth is when you outlaw guns… they dont just ‘Vanish’ …. you create a society in which *only criminals have guns*.
Thank God Stephen Willeford had an AR!
Ride On Brother!
And Salute to Peggy Lynn Warden… who gave her life for her grandson.
Dont let the haters win… Keep the faith!
New Zealand Biker.
Disappointment is only possible when it is preceded by hope, thus at Election time with respect to policy, I am never disappointed by National or Labour… what I experience from them is sickening depression, disgust, and anger.
I ask myself why it is that I have suffered a succession of disappointments from The Act Party, and it is obviously because with Act I have always harboured much higher Hopes than the others that they would stand up for the values and principles of Liberty and justice… only to watch them sell out everything for the sake of sitting in parliament as Eunuchs to the tyrants.
Why do they do it?
As someone who has myself stood for Election many times, I have steeled myself against the temptation of dropping unpopular principles for the sake of getting more votes, believing that selling out for the sake of getting into power as not only cowardly and a betrayal to the minorities whose plight is dire and yet have no representation in parliament… but that without carrying my principles with me it would also be an absolutely hollow victory!
I have always believed that when it comes to politics it is a persons integrity to principles that is essential as they alone distinguished my political wares from all the rest… and what elevated me to the higher ground… and from which alone I can have self esteem.
And this has been proven true for Act… with their track record for achieving virtually nothing while in parliament.
They of course try and justify their gross compromises with the opposite lame idea that being in power is the most important value.
The bitter taste in my mouth is because all of Act’s rhetoric about being a party of Freedom and small government is ultimately farcical!
They all sound like Libertarians at their election speeches, and all their leaders have written books that tend to make the reader think these people understand what is wrong with the status quo and are the party who seeks to reform all the violations of Freedom and justice yet when they get to the coal face…Parliament… they have already bargained away all their picks and shovels… and sit there smugly like useless toothless Lions…. and all the Evils continue on unabated… all the while still kidding themselves that they still represent something better and more noble!
They prop up virtually all the new oppressive measures their overlords dictate… if not expressly, then by simply continuing to support the wicked regime of which they are a part.
They think their compromises have gained them the world… yet it has been at the cost of their souls.
How could Act have ever gotten into bed with National AND the Maori party… and still sleep at night???!!!!!
Its mind boggling!
They have no base line below which they will not stoop.
This blog post is primarily about what I see as current Act Leader David Seymour’s absolutely shocking strategy to “Save the Act Party’… Keep the bad guys out… and make the good guys better” (to paraphrase David).
I intend to point out what I believe are the fatal errors in his plan… and to put in writing an alternative strategy that I am sure is pragmatically smarter and also far more ethical for Act.
It is not my intention here to just throw mud.
My introduction (above) was written with the intention of showing how the principled liberty-loving voter evaluates Act’s historic modus opperandi.
I hope that the above shows how Act has disappointed the sizable minority who would otherwise vote for them this election.
It is *this sizable minority* that David should be aiming his policies to gain his own political foundations within the voting populous, instead of his current fatally flawed strategy of ditching all the most precious principles that Act are supposed to represent in hope of having a much broader popular appeal.
I went to the Waikato ‘Beers with David Seymour’ event on the East side of the Waikato river a few nights back to size him up face to face and with the hope of discussing these things with him, yet unfortunately it was late in the evening when I made my move… too late for this private discussion… and so I missed my opportunity.
I am primarily writing this for his sake… for Acts sake… you see another reason I went to this meeting was on the outside chance that he may be able to convince me to spend the rest of this election period advocating for Act instead of Winston first.
There was perhapse 30 people there, and it was held at the ‘Good Neighbour’ restaurant and bar, which though a tad noisy from the diners below the mezzenene, sold good beer and I hear great food.
I saw a Man who was much more likable than he appears in the media, and from his speech and answers to the questions that followed, I can see that he is an honest man… even if I strongly disagree with how he operates.
I refrained from taking him to task over the many points that made me recoil as It is always important to be respectful at such events… only lefties think they have the divine right to ruin such evenings and attempt to shut down speakers who say things of which they disapprove… because they have no respect for free speech and no sense of decency.
I express my negative reactions to his answers here not to scorn him or to undermine him, but in the hope of explaining how many of that sizable minority of Freedom loving voters feel about what we see as his constant lack of political spine.
Hearing him talk and answer questions it was obvious to me there was zero point in even raising the topic of all the Toxic Deaths attributed to synthetic cannabis happening right now… on his watch… in Auckland city, and the obvious solution of the legalisation of the much safer alternative… Cannabis … even though I believe this is another righteous opportunity being lost by Act.
It’s like he has been hanging out with Super-conservative Bill English too long and has been sitting at his feet like a puppy taking notes… much to National’s satisfaction!
It is easy to imagine him having Beers with his good mate Bill… The Old statesman tutoring the younger and hence somewhat gullible student who assumes his mentor has his best interests at heart… and is bequeathing to his apprentice the mysteries of political success… when in reality Bill has his own Agenda and seeks to keep David in check.
This senerio has weight because of how David answered the questions at question time… there was a definite theme… a definite mindset, for example when I fired my most important question I had on my list to ask him about whether or not he would support Winston Peters call for a referendum on the Maori Seats he in so many words said *NO!*, and his excuse was to quote National party/John key/ Bill English line that to work to dismantle the Apartheid electoral system would produce ‘Hikois from hell’.
He is prepared to ignore this most cancerous situation out of fear of the Maori radicals… allowing the malignancy to reach the bone where it will become nothing but pain and misery for future generations… all because he wont lace up his boots… grab his gun… and head to the front himself.
Not only was this a testament that he has no spine to confront the most serious injustice that our Political system embodies, but also that was a clear indication that he either thinks following the same strategy that National is following… will also work for Act or that he is too cowardly to differ from National on this vital issue out of fear they may stand against him in Epsom!
Seriously think about that.
If its the first reason he’s stupid, and if its the second he’s proving to just be Nationals Lap dog!
I think its both.
He fails to see that the only reason that freedom lovers will vote for Act rather than National or Labour is because they believe Act has more Mettle and higher values than these mainstream parties with their legions of Sheeple voters and absolutely Evil Racist politics!
He underestimates the cost to Act in votes that his lack of spine on such important matters costs them in the polls.
It was sooo apparent to me that David does not realise how disconnected he is from the very people whom he should be appealing to!
That significant voting block that is far in excess of 5%… and is currently homeless… currently thinking of holding their nose… and voting New Zealand first!
Anyone who knows Winston knows the man can smell where the votes are!
Old whiley Winston knows a Massive percentage of the voting public have had a guts full of all the racism and extortion that results from treaty separatism and the Maori seats, and that out of desperation will will rally around *anyone* who campaigns to bring this evil to an end and establish Racial equality before the Law.
David cant be associating himself with the same political forums that I frequent and so he does not appreciate just how many votes that Winston has gained solely from his forthright assault on these Racist seats and agenda!
It massive, and the chief reason Winston is skyrocketing in the polls and was the chief reason Don Brash was able to raise National out of the pit of despair they were in when he inherited the leadership… a doldrums they were suffering in the wake of Helen Clark, very similar to doldrums Labour has suffered in wake of john Key.
Winston is not phased by the threat of ‘Hikois from hell’… which is nothing but tale wagging the dog!
All the vileness of treaty separatism springs from MMP chiefly because of the perpetual failure to abolish the Maori Seats and is why New Zealanders of significant numbers are desperate to get rid of them… if only David would grow a pair… be willing to cross the floor away from Bill English… and support Winston’s call for a referendum.
Votes like mine would flow into Act instead of NZ First!
And his Mana and integrity would rise in the eyes of the voters… I would be far less disappointed with Act!
I cant help also think that David is reciprocating a petty dislike for Winston as he claims Winston holds for Him (David alluded to this with respect to Winston refusal to endorse his euthanasia bill)
If this is so it also demonstrates a lack of character by David which again means he falls from walking the higher path, and is a turn off.
It was grotesque when having flat out denied that he would not defend Racial equality before the Law that minutes later he was spieling on about being a champion of equality for Woman!
Oh! such a brave stand…. in our times of Politically Correct tyranny and Feminist domination!
It is just Lame.
This is the sort of rubbish that people expect from Labour and Green MPs appealing to their dopey useful idiots!
Again he fails to connect with the traditional Act voter and fails to appreciate how they are looking for a far different and just approach in politics!
An ex card carrying Act member told me how affronted he was when David introduced his List team as ‘Embodying diversity’… Girls… young people, ethnic minorities… as if these were important merits rather than because they are the best most skilled people for the job!
Ie Act is supposed to be about Merit… not such PC Rubbish that should be the preserve of the Zombie Left!
He betrays the sad fact that he has swallowed the lefty propaganda that Act is the party for ‘Wealthy Old White Men’ and crumbled under pressure!
Again his strategy show a disconnect from the serious minded Act voter.
Davis enunciated his strategy to save Act.
He said he is employing the latest Election techniques from America, and had polled and talked with 1700 people for half a hour first asking them who they would vote for… and then at the end asking them again… noting those whom had changed their mind and decided they would vote Act.
He said they gleaned what policies were the ones to had positively swayed these people and said these were the policies he would hammer on about in the rest of the election campaign.
he said Act is sitting at 1% in the polls, but that he would win Epsom, and that only by degrees of a few % of party vote would increase the number of List MPs he could carry with him into parliament.
From this you see that he has abandoned his faithful and things that if he can sell Act with the most broad and non-threatening policy that he only needs a few % more to get his best people in parlaiment with him… and with more Act mps… more clout to wrestle better deals.
Obvious to me this exercise he employed did not ask the right questions… because of his unwillingness now to make bold policy.
Think about this…He is not aiming at reaching 5%, and is only attempting to garner a few measly percent of the vote! and for such a minuscule return he is prepared to sell out on the most important principles Act professes to stand for!
That is the impression his strategy stimulates in the mind of the thinking principled freedom loving demographic that he is supposed to represent!
And I’m sure this rationale does have some support from a proportion of Act members even though it demonstrates that Act is no longer about principles but about playing the numbers… just like National… this theme is consistent in all his thinking and is why He does not understand how to function as a minority Party.
If he does not win Epsom, Act is finished… yet to win Epson he sell out everything Act represents and becomes indistinguishable from National.
I think he underestimates the mettle of the Epsom electorate and their capacity to vote for a far stronger and more principled MP and that out of fear of alienating himself from the electorate.
He admitted almost daily knocking on doors there and how tiny the numbers were of people whom were interested in talking politics, yet somehow thinks he has enough Data to justify treading such a low path.
Safety rather than Bold principle is the very heart of his strategy, and his own political position in parliament as representative for Epsom comes first rather than Act principles… and even more important than getting his fellow list members in with him.
He’s all about the Numbers… not about spine… not about principles… and I believe his numbers are wayyyyy off.
To sumerize David may be honest… and I believe that is his most virtuous aspect, yet he has fallen into a trap, and has absolutely has the wrong strategy to win support for Act….
His strategy is one you would expect from Bill English…. His thinking is not about fighting for his professed values, but about keeping Act within what he believes is ‘popular opinion’… and that is why Act must fail… hes not connecting with *the minority demographic that wants to Vote Act*… if only they are significantly distinguishable from National and will have the backbone to wrestle *Real Concessions* .
I would love to discuss this further with David, it is impossible to present everything in a blog like this, and I hope that my criticisms are not childishly dismissed with the wave of the hand and written off as written in malice, and seeking to undermine Act.
They are written for the very opposite reason.
It was only yesterday that I read a press release about Jacinda Ardern’s striving to win the The Maori seats for Labour by saying she supports the entrenchment of the Maori seats which will make it much harder to abolish them. Read/watch that Here
This sets the tone for the ugly face-off between National and Labour come post election coalition talks and the competition for which party will sell out most to Racist Treaty separatism!
This demonstrates how urgent it is that these seats must be established immediately and that anyone with any Political nous knows that we are looking down the barrel of Massive Race relations injustices being perpetuated and that our Children will inherit this mess because of spinelessness of those Mps whom claim to know better unwillingness to take the fight against the rabid racism of Treaty separatists.
This is an evil that grows exponentially… and the task ahead grows more perilous by the day as the brainwashing that is going on in schools and in the media is relentless.
Sadly, I left the meeting still affirmed that I’m best giving my vote to Winston, and unless there is a significant and immediate change in direction I will continue telling others to do the same.
And this makes my pain and disappointment in likes Of David and his minions so much more acute.
The time cannot be far away before I loose my disappointment in Act… not because they have grown a pair… but because like most of the traditional Act voter whom have abandoned them…I have learned to expect nothing better from them than from Labour or Nation.
I may not suffer this misery long as there is every possibility that act will disappear after this election and they will deserve it because they have sold out all everything that the significant minority of freedom lovers hold dear and the greatest reasons Act have had any votes at all.
By far Acts greatest Leader was Don Brash!
He is hero of mine, and was set to Put act back on the map with his adroit stand for one Law for all, and the decriminalization of cannabis yet he shot himself in the foot by taking on board John Banks who was not ACT material at all and caused Don to Falter on the decriminalization of Cannabis.
Banks Took Epsom but Sunk Act!
And now because of that very Peanut brained nasty Dinosaur mentality that dominates in parliament towards ending Prohibition we have young people dying on Auckland streets from imbibing Poisons!
I dont know what polls National and David Seymour follow yet they cant be the same ones the rest of the country look at as the pols on this issue clearly indicate a majority of Kiwis want decriminalization!
Read here how Don Brashes integrity to what are supposed to be act core principle resulted in an outcry within his own ranks!
Ending the War on cannabis embodies all the Values and principle Act claim to represent, and when it happens will result in a massive improvement in justice… massive reduction in police expenses and man power and less body bags… and not cost the taxpayer a dime!
David is already on record that though he personally thinks it should be legalised … he wont move on it as he fears it will cost him votes…
If only he was not so cowardly and show some kahunas… he would win votes!
I am sure he could sell this in Epsom if he had the courage of his convictions.
Its dishonest to know what is right in your heart… but refuse to defend it.
The demographic for cannabis Law reform is massive and the the only advocates for this are all on the left.
This means there are a huge number of homeless Pro cannabis voters who hate the left who are just waiting for someone on the Right to give them a home!
In a flash he could boost his own ranks and rob support from the left.
You dont need to appeal to the masses of dumbfounded dipshits!
Your whole strategy is wrong… and it makes you stink!
Your Votes are to be found in that 15-20% of principled and outraged thinkers!
Give Don Brash a call FFS!
Ask Jamie Whyte what he thinks he did right and what he did wrong.
How high can you stack Bullshit?
If You are a Populist Politician belonging to any of the mainstream parties you can stack it Flocking High!!!
In 2010 John Key boasted that The governments Heavy handed Tactics on P ‘were winning’… anyone familiar with Prohibition ought to have immediately smelled something very poo-ey…. World Leaders have been coming to realise that Prohibition *Never works!*… yet it suceeds in making society less safe…
The Police are executing people without trial… yet the problem keep getting worse….
When it comes to dealing with societies Pet Phobias… The more heavy handed the better.
Like the witch craze…. The Mass hysteria surrounding P (Meth) is a Licence to Kill.
The best indicator to their Failure is despite More funding… More Arrests, and Executions… and Extreme Punishments being meted out… Demand has not fallen, and the price of P is now almost half what it was in 2010!
In October last year, then-Prime Minister John Key acknowledged meth had become “the drug of choice” for some Kiwis.
Police needed to do more to stop it entering the country through remote areas like Northland, he said.
Key said at the time that a $15 million boost for anti-drug initiatives was not an admission the Government was losing the war against P.
John Key puts on his ‘Cant remember’ face.
^^^ What an evil lying Pig-headed Prick!
The Man is Deranged!
Anyone with any brains can see that The War on P is lost…
Anyone with Brains can see that Ongoing Cannabis Prohibition is also exacerbating the use of Meth… and that the best policy for making our country safer would be to legalise Cannabis… as has been happening in America!
And when it is proven that More Freedom… less tyranny actually works… more people will wake up to the truth that the War on drugs needs to be completely surrendered… yet of course,, the vested interests of Prohibition… the populist politicians…The Police… and The Drug Gangs… And the Growth indistry that has sprung up testing workers for Drugs… testing houses for contamination… repairing houses that have been blacklisted…. these vested interests and the Millions of Dopey dipshits who think they have the right to tell other people what they do with their own Bodies, time, and money… all these freaks will do everything they can to keep the war going…. Despite all the evidence that they are making things worse.
The word ‘insanity’ does not do justice to this Madness.
‘Hellbent’ ‘Psychopathic’ ‘Fanaticism’ ‘Malevolent-hatred’…. these are terms more suited to describe all the parties involved in perpetuating this Heinous War.
Satan Laughing spreads his wings.
‘Meth now easier to get than cannabis in Northland, locals say’….
January 19 2017
Methamphetamine has become easier to source in Northland than marijuana, according to locals.
Whangarei defence lawyer Kelly Ellis said according to her clients, P was soaring in availability over cannabis, which had long been considered the country’s preferred illegal drug.
“It makes sense, let’s get real about it,” she said.
“Meth is much more lucrative and much easier to do than having to carry smelly bags of cannabis around the place.”
Ellis deals with people at “the pointy end” of the drug trade, including meth users, dealers and manufacturers.
She said gang presence in the north had increased rapidly over the past five years, and what were once tinnie houses had converted to dealing the much harder drug.
The seizure of half a tonne of P from 90 Mile Beach in June was an indication of the size of New Zealand’s meth problem, she said.
“If you look at that as being a basic economic indicator of availability versus demand, it seems demand is not outstripping supply.”
Chris Fowlie, president of the New Zealand reform marijuana advocacy group NORML, said he too had heard meth was easier to come by than cannabis in Northland.
”People can’t find cannabis but they know where to get meth from a tinnie house,” he said.
“Gangs really do run the show because of fear of people growing their own.”
Detective Inspector Kevin Burke said the take-down of 12 local labs last year, on top of the June bust, was another indication of the “significant problem” meth had become.
“It illustrates, in addition to the importation of methamphetamine, there’s still a demand clearly for homegrown methamphetamine,” he said.
“At the end of the day it’s profit-driven and people are prepared to run the risk.”
In October, then-Prime Minister John Key acknowledged meth had become “the drug of choice” for some Kiwis.
Police needed to do more to stop it entering the country through remote areas like Northland, he said.
Key said at the time that a $15 million boost for anti-drug initiatives was not an admission the Government was losing the war against P.
“Westport is being dubbed “Methport” as P takes a hold in the West Coast town.
The annual cannabis haul in the West Coast bush has been trending down over the past decade but P offences have sky-rocketed. Joanne Carroll takes a look at what is happening.
The West Coast has always had a reputation for being the cannabis capital of New Zealand with its isolated communities surrounded by beautiful wild bush in a climate that some say creates ideal growing conditions.
But that reputation is changing as P takes a devastating grip….”
They claim it’s easier to buy a bag of P than it is to get a cannabis tinny, and that addiction is having a flow-on effect in the community.
“Depending on who you know it’s between $550 and $1000 a gram, and in Gisborne we have kids going to school with no lunch,” says former user Tricia Walsh, who was jailed for three years on drug offences.”
“The bad news is that there are still some governments that believe drug prohibition is possible. They still insist on continuing a flawed war launched by former President Nixon in the early 1970s. They cling to outdated ideas. They rely more on ideology than evidence. Some of them are simply ignorant to the harms generated by irrational drug policy.
Here are three ways that the war on drugs has fallen short.
First, the war on drugs has utterly failed to reduce the supply of illicit drugs on international markets. Fumigation, eradication, and crop substitution programmes have had almost no effect on aggregate production of cocaine, heroin, or marijuana. In spite of massive investments by the U.S. and others in Bolivia, Colombia and Peru – the countries responsible for almost 100% of cocaine production – coca cultivation is in fact stable over the past decade. If anything, they’ve only succeeded in making life more miserable for poor communities and farmers.
Second, counter-narcotics policies have also been unable to contain transit of drugs from Latin America to North American and European markets. About 90% of the cocaine consumed in the United States comes from Colombia, while 90% of the cocaine used by Europeans is from Peru. Virtually all of this product is transferred through countries in Central America, the Caribbean and South America. Not only has it persisted unabated, but its transfer has also greatly expanded corruption of politicians, customs officials, police and has spread violence and increased consumption throughout these regions….”

“The war on drugs is futile. So why not just decriminalize meth?”
It’s not a sentiment you’d expect from senior officials in any authoritarian country — let alone from a strait-laced army general, draped in medals, who came to power in a coup.
But Thailand’s top law enforcement officer is now pursuing this radical notion with vigor.
He’s talking openly about a potential new diktat, issued by military rulers, that would allow citizens to smoke meth without fearing prison.
“The world has lost the war on drugs,” said Thailand’s Justice Minister Paiboon Khumchaya, according to Reuters. “Not only Thailand.”
These are startling statements in a country that, as it stands, still executes drug traffickers.
The Thai government’s drug policy is quite harsh. After all, in recent decades, the nation’s police have largely mimicked the zealous drug war mindset propagated by the United States.
Yet now, seemingly out of nowhere, this typically rigid junta is spouting soft views on narcotics — namely meth — that fall somewhere to the left of many Colorado stoners.
“This is unprecedented,” says Pascal Tanguay, a Bangkok-based associate with the International Drug Policy Consortium. “They’ve actually been talking about different models from decriminalization to full-fledged legalization.”
