Good afternoon everyone,
I would love for all you fencesitters to consider this….
Our PM knows 100% that if she was to meet with a protest representative that, while being recorded, she would be asked about all of the deals/paperwork she has signed us up to under the pre-arranged guise of emergency health and safety. And she absolutely can not have that. So we get what we saw yesterday.
I want you to consider that the media model that once encouraged the public hounding of our officials to hold them to account, has now been replaced by a Government paid out media who – if they ask a tough question of our leaders – simply don’t get to ask another and therefore have nothing to take back to print.
So they don’t ask the really tough questions. And the same for unfavorable pictures and video – they don’t publish them.
For years they have engaged in soundbite/snapshot journalism – but now that their paychecks are also answerable to a Government who has an image to maintain, we have a media that is quite simply disconnected from anything resembling reality. Right throughout the last 2 years, we have been incessantly gaslit like the Pied Piper’s rats.
So in summary, if it wasn’t bad enough that this government has started going all iron-fist on its citizens, our fourth estate (the mainstream media) is completely compromised and absent to be there FOR the people.
Because consciously and/or subconsciously, they don’t want to bite the hand that feeds them…
Kia Kaha everyone

Good morning everyone,
My wednesday three cents…
The media has literally taught us to demonize anyone who is standing up for their freedoms in New Zealand (and abroad) as if we should have to wait until we are as vulnerable as Ukraine before we stand up for ourselves – and like programmable little robots we’ve sucked it all up.
I have absolutely no idea what it is like to live in a war torn environment and I never claim to have…
But I have ranted and raved for years that I do understand how fragile ‘freedom’ and ‘democracy’ is, and how important it is to keep it in check. And it is my firm belief that we have been much too complacent for far too long.
Those protesters in Wellington and those of us all over the world are doing the work that our politicians and leaders should be; bringing to light the dodgey as fuck paperwork that is paving the way for us to go down a similar societal model to China. That model is just too attractive to corporate investors.
This pandemic has been used to rush through mountains of legislation under the banner of ‘health and safety’ which hugely undermines us as a country and as individuals, and those protesters and whistleblowers all over the world are standing in the way. So the media machine is under full swing to program as many people as possible to think we are lucky with what we’ve got, when luck has absolutely nothing to do with it.
I will never pretend to know the pain of anyone living in a war torn country. But I will also not tolerate being undermined for standing up for my freedom so that we don’t get to that point ourselves.
Do not be fooled by the media machine.
Stand up for your fellow Kiwis. They are doing everything they can to stand up for you, you just don’t know it yet.
Kia Kaha everyone
