I am not a crook.

Wheeler's Corner 27 1st July 2018

 "Connecting Citizens Who Care“ 



"One last point, Key hired Shane Jones for some really strange diplomatic posts in the pacific, Did Key approach Jones to seek a pay back from would not surprise me that he did just that".

Read the above reference and you can then decide if you would consider if John Key is a crook or not.
John Key's history as we all know was based on his ability to sell shonkey deals in the financial world, he was successful and he helped in his own small way to wreak havoc in some countries. He made the rich richer and the poor poorer and it was a profitable exercise for him and those who he worked for.

In the end when his manipulation reached its high point and he was  in the US and his manipulation caught up with him and he fled the scene carrying a bag of ill-gotten gains. He had proved that Ponzi schemes worked for some when the US housing market collapsed . The rat left the sinking ship while his old boss was bailed out by the US tax-payers.

Back in NZ he decided that a teenage dream of becoming Prime Minister was possible. He got a sitting member of Parliament moved when he brought his safe seat in Auckland. Not for him the hard work involved in contesting an electorate, door knocking and all that stuff. Naturally he won after all it was a save National seat [Oh and by the way he didn't even live in the electorate].
Don Brash

Once in Parliament all he needed to do was to slowly and carefully take over from the then leader Don Brash and as he has always done he manipulated the situation to his own advantage. This he did...once that was achieved he set about winning an election.

His inbuilt skill at manipulation of both the media and his own party gave him the opportunity to create a picture of so-called competence and there was no question that he was competent. Because he went on to three terms as PM.

But during those three terms certain obvious and disturbing signs appeared that indicated clearly that his competence was only skin deep. The tugging of a young woman's pony tail and his sexist response to her request to cease doing so, as well as his wife and his police security teams efforts to stop his oververtly sexual behaviour [he pulled her hair many times].

Many times he used the police to act on his behalf to stop a backlash, the police for example reacted instantly to his illegal request to shut down a tape he made with failed Act Leader John Banks this matched his pressure on police and SIS to shut down the negative effect of Nicky Hagar's book Dirty Politics, he really over stepped the bounds normally respected in New Zealand public life. His crazy waste of money on his flag changing exercise [dream] simply confirmed his unsuitability for leadership. Lastly his absolute instructions to the Defence force chief to carry out the raid on a small village in Afghanistan accelerated his steady but sure decline.

So as was his normal learned reaction he did his usual, and when the going got tough he decided to ship out before he actual lost an election...but not before donating tax payers hard earned cash to the Clinton Foundation. Before handing the leadership over to Bill English he somehow got nominated for a knighthood. Hence we now have Sir John. Once that was achieved he began the move off shore to live in Australia as was expected.

But we also expected him to cease lobbying on behalf of the super rich wanting to transfer their ill gotten gain, they had brought their so-called citizenship, but alas old habits die hard and the temptation was too great for him. He caved in and pressured Shane Jones to meet a couple of his American millionaire so-called mates so as to allow them to bypass a still to be introduced law regarding overseas ownership in Iwi settlement land in NZ.
Shane Jones

Sadly for Key wee Shane Jones now a NZ First list MP simply couldn't keep his mouth shut and all was revealed in Parliament this week.

At the start of this short item I asked the question is John Key a crook, well after reading the references from Stuff and from Radio NZ you decide... If you are a believer is social justice, in fair play and don't simply accept the PR bullshit you may agree with don't have to but I ask you seriously consider Keys behaviour.

One last point, Key hired/appointed blue video expert Shane Jones for some really strange minor diplomatic post in the pacific, Did Key approach Jones to seek a pay back from would not surprise me that he did just that.

2. Domestic violence is an issue that we avoid discussing for various reasons, most of us have had contact with occasions of domestic violence and because of this fact many of us feel uncomfortable with the issue so we react accordingly and retreat into silence. 

Well Green MP Jan Logie introduced a bill that could and would assist those who suffer the effects of this behaviour, she hoped that she would get the whole of parliament to support to help bring this matter into the public arena. But strange as it may sound the National Party thought otherwise.

"Nationals Justice spokesman Mark Mitchell said it is important that victims of domestic violence can speak to their employers about what's happening at home.
But he said it's also important that small businesses aren't agonising over the cost of compliance.
"Whether it be cashflow, whether it be personnel; worrying about being able to make that payroll to actually pay your employees," he said.
"That is something that's important, because if the business fails, they don't have a job."

Oh dear me the excuses the National party dreams up really supports my view that they are opposed to any assistance to help those in greatest need. It is simply not on their agenda... they clearly fall into the category of the three monkeys. Jan Logie's bill was and is a step forward in gaining nation wide recognition of a growing problem.

We do little justice to those who suffer domestic violence by ignoring what is taking place in real terms, but today we seem to know the cost of everything but little else. We spend time blaming rather than assisting and finding the ways and means to reduce the overall suffering of those directly affected.

I'm not suggesting that people don't care, but I am suggesting that we should not give up looking for ways and means to improve present behaviors. Did the National party vote against the huge tax increases on tobacco which must have affected the incomes of small businesses, No they did not... why because of the greater good [I hope]

I expect an opposition to think carefully about social issues and not simply play politics. At least NZ First have come up with possible amendments to Jan Logie's members bill and if the bill gets public submissions then other possibilities may appear, that is the right approach. Once again RNZ has aired the subject go to the reference below to read their comments. 
 3. Jono Naylor simply loves the public purse, ex-Mayor and ex-National party list MP has made his living by reaching into the public pocket for a decade. When he resigned as Mayor to become a list MP which only lasted one term he cost the Palmerston North rate-payers tens of thousands in by-election costs. 

His wife is now a PNCC Councilor and is still or was a Member of the local hospital Board. Taking money from the public purse it would seem is a family affair. I think Jono Naylor should find himself a real job, one where he might actually do some good. I wonder if the same mob who backed his Mayoral campaign will back his effort to become yet again reliant on the public purse to pay his bills. 

Well that's it for this week, I hope you are all well and beating the cold by staying warm. Please never forget you are human and most importantly a very important person.

Crazy President, Children and Activism

They gathered in mass on a cold Friday night in Palmerston North.

The purpose was simple, the purpose was easily understood.

The purpose was to express in a meaningful way the real meaning of the word 'love'.

Love for ones fellow human beings accepting that, that word stretches across all humanity, across all borders over all man-made walls.

Families are made up of parents and children in various combinations. If you forcibly separate families, as the Nazi's did for example, as US pretend President Donald Trump attempted then you will create a backlash. A reaction based on a inbuilt sense of justice, fairness and compassion because love based on these attributes is what makes us human.

It was these wonderful emotions that drove myself and others of a like mind to take to the streets and express our sadness and distaste for the behaviour being employed by the US President in his efforts to close the border with Mexico. His hateful and childlike language used to describe Mexican people as criminals, dope addicts, drug pushers etc. proves just how tormented his tiny uneducated mind has become.

While we should note that the great bulk of thinking citizens of the United States disagreed with the crazed view of failed border walls and his crazed infantile behaviour and plus because of his cunning but insane and inhuman step of separating parents from their children, was simply a step too far and so they like the rest of the world spoke out. And of course like all insecure and big headed populists he quickly crumbled and for the time being brought to a halt his child domination dreams.

He had gone from a cartoon character and laughed at showman into a actual monster demon when he introduced a 'child separation policy as a tool to achieve his now infamous wall between the US and Mexico.

Of course the private prison industry loved the policy, as did the private security companies now a vital part of the ICE force that prevails all across the US. The various arms industries welcome with open arms the US push to militarization of state police forces

So the question still remains who will be next? Will it be Canada? go to:


On Saturday I attended a workshop day organised by the Anglican Church, I was astounded by the size of the crowd. As I was only involved with a Workshop being conducted by The Rev Andy Hickman at 1.30 pm the lunch break was still underway when I arrived, by my count there was at least 300 to 400 people present. Since I'm from a Anglican / Catholic back ground seeing this number of people has helped to restore my faith in humanity.

The workshop related to being an activist and all that that word was great to have the chance to listen to and share with others just what it means to convert a desire for social change into some actual changed behaviour.
I feel sure that many came away from the exercise of defining ones emotional feelings regarding 'activist' behaviour into comfortable, uncomfortable, I feel many quickly realised that you can't have social change without having social justice.

This was particularly relevant after early this week hearing the US Vice-President quote the bible suggesting that obeying the law was a key part of christian behaviour... bad laws, like separating children from their parents should not be obeyed... Non violent activism includes taking non-violent action to prevent unjust laws being introduced, Of course in the main police and the military are used to enforce desired behaviour that those with political or financial power to get their own way. So they use these forces [Police Military Security] to enable their backers to achieve specific goals.

To counter the ever growing fascist / dictator style of government [US etc.] we as individuals need to seek the ways and means of developing social justice rules for society. Those rules need to be based on just and well thought out laws via our democratic systems.

Some of our fellow citizens contend that democracy is dead, that elections are useless because money and greed now rule the roost. This attitude is understandable when one see's the amount of money needed to get elected...and when ones see's how much money is spent on ensuring that people can't vote or that their votes are not counted, you quickly realise just how important a vote can be in controlling the economic structures in various countries around the world.

Democracy as we once understood it has been recreated and diluted, but it still scares the hell out of the fascists and dictators on the world stage. Read Noam Chomsky's on the subject from Truth out:

After 18 months of Trump in the White House, American politics finds itself at a crossroads. The United States has moved unmistakably toward a novel form of fascism that serves corporate interests and the military, while promoting at the same time a highly reactionary social agenda infused with religious and crude nationalistic overtones, all with an uncanny touch of political showmanship. In this exclusive Truthout interview, world-renowned linguist and public intellectual Noam Chomsky analyzes some of the latest developments in Trumpland and their consequences for democracy and world order.  That's the introduction now go to, its well worth the effort.

On 18 June 2018, the Zionist Federation of New Zealand (ZFNZ) issued a statementcondemning “the latest anti-Israel resolution by the UN General Assembly on 11 June 2018.” The online pro-Zionist website, J-Wire (describing itself as Digital Jewish news daily for Australia and New Zealand) gleefully introduced the statement thus: “New Zealand believes that Israel should allow Israelis be killed proportionately to satisfy the international community.” The statement issued by ZFNZ did not actually go that far, but its tone certainly implied as much. Rob Berg, the President of the ZFNZ, claimed that the carnage was the only way Israel could ‘defend’ itself and, referring to Jacinda Arderns' concern over “the devastating, one-sided loss of life”, told J-Wire that “New Zealand has yet again sided with terrorists”.

After reading the reference I'm sure you'll recognise crap when you see it, I use it to simply point out how groups like the Zionists twist the truth for their own ends. It's called propaganda and its very very effective in taking our eye off the ball. 

I think I've given you enough examples for you to decide for yourself just how corrupt some political behaviour has evolved. But if you really want to be effective you need to become activated to actually do something.

Well that's it for this week, look after you self and keep warm.

Activists can change the world

Changing the world starts with individuals taking a stand.

Hi to all activists,

This Friday at 5 pm in The Square, Palmerston North.
Join "It's Our Future Manawatu" for a family-friendly peaceful gathering as we stand in solidarity with the families traumatised by the US border policies.
In attendance will be city councillors, local iwi, members of our local Latino community, school children and people from all walks of life as we extend arohanui and manaakitanga from here in Palmerston North – Manawatu to the families and children currently experiencing the trauma of enforced separation, and call for an immediate end to this institutionalised injustice.
Gather by the monument to Te Peeti Te Awe awe and bring signs, flowers, LED lights as we show we care and that we aren’t ok with what’s happening right now.

Regardless of your political views what is happening to children on the Mexican boarder is an attack on the human race. This Friday It’s Our Future Manawatu is organising a gathering in The Square [Opp Plaza entrance] where we will present a statement regarding this inhuman behaviour to the local media and a copy sent to the US Ambassador here in NZ.

If you could attend in numbers it would without doubt make that statement much more powerful.

WHEN; This Friday the 22nd of June 2018
PLACE: The Square PN Opp Plaza Entrance
TIME: 5 pm.

Please share this request with all your friends we need to show our communities and our fellow human beings that separating children from their parents is no answer to the problems that confront the world. Violence such as that being pursued by the Donald Trump is both dehumanising and disgusting. To read more about this inhuman behaviour go to:    

Latest from Radio NZ on the subject says it all...

Outcry grows over family separations

Democrats staged an impromptu congressional protest and moderate Republicans and key US business groups pressed Mr Trump to stop separating immigrant children from their parents as an opinion poll showed most Americans oppose the policy.
The family separations and detentions of children at the southern US border, highlighted by the videos of youngsters in cages and an audiotape of wailing children, have sparked an outcry at home and strong condemnation abroad.
Two of the top US business groups, the US Chamber of Commerce and the Business Roundtable, decried the separation policy on Tuesday and called for its immediate cessation.
"This practice is cruel and contrary to American values," the group's chair, Chuck Robbins, said.

The separations have been blasted by Democrats, some Republicans, medical professionals, rights activists and clergy.
They began after Attorney-General Jeff Sessions announced in April that all immigrants apprehended while crossing the US-Mexico border illegally should be criminally prosecuted.
Parents who are referred by border agents for prosecution are held in federal jails, while their children are moved into border shelter facilities under the custody of the Office of Refugee Resettlement, a Department of Health and Human Services agency.
A Reuters/Ipsos national opinion poll released on Tuesday showed fewer than one in three American adults support the policy. The 16-19 June poll found that 28 percent of people polled supported the policy, while 57 percent opposed it and the remaining 15 percent said they do not know.
The images that have sparked widespread condemnation, of children in wire cages, are of a border patrol processing center in McAllen, Texas.

Other Peoples Wars plus Police Political Coruption.

Wheeler's Corner 25 16th June 2018.

 This from NO Right Turn, Australia fly's Nazi flag in Afghanistan:  

"Shared values"

OzSASNazisWhenever New Zealand leaps to join Australia in another foreign war, the politicians always talk about our countries' 'shared values". Well, this is an example of the Australian values we are supposed to "share":

That's an Australian SAS truck in Afghanistan, flying a Nazi flag:

Australian soldiers have been photographed flying a Nazi swastika flag from their vehicle while on operations in Afghanistan.
The photo, obtained exclusively by the ABC, was taken in August 2007.

The photograph shows the large swastika emblem hoisted over an Australian military vehicle.

Two separate Defence sources have identified a particular soldier as the individual who took the flag to Afghanistan.
Because that's who Australia lets into its military: Nazis. Not surprising when you remember that for the last decade they've been sticking refugees in concentration camps and torturing them until they kill themselves of "voluntarily" leave.

We should have nothing to do with a country with a military like this, with policies like this.

Meths an excuse to sell State Houses...wheelers Corner

Wheeler's Corner 24 10th June 2018.

This from Radio NZ:
"The apologies have been coming in thick and fast over the last week after the Prime Minister's chief scientific advisor delivered a king hit to the country's meth testing industry.
It's now clear hundreds of Housing New Zealand's tenants have been needlessly kicked out of their homes and blacklisted, while in the private sector landlords coughed up many millions of dollars to decontaminate their homes, because it was wrongly assumed that meth residue posed a risk to people's health.

An entire testing industry has sprung up in New Zealand offering to test homes for traces of meth while the legal system and local government have punished those unfortunate enough to get caught up in what is nothing more than a groundless moral panic. Have a listen to:

You decide who was at fault, did Paula Bennett and Bill English use the 'P' scare to enable them to toss out tenants and their families from social and State housing and therefor enable the government to sell off housing while at the same time spend millions on a Saudi non-existent Farm and a changing the flag exercise whim of the then PM.

The evidence that has now clearly been disclosed shows the obvious twisted logic of a government that never really cared about honest socially acceptable behaviour. This along with the weak and gutless leadership of Housing NZ, but hey this was normal behaviour under John Key and Bill English.

The bulls**t that we now know was absolute false or fake news has come back to bite our bums, and for this kind of clap-trap Bill English was knighted...Who the heck signed that one off? English the man who hates gays, apposes abortion, detests gay marriage, kicks people out of state houses and sells hundreds of state houses, runs the public health system into the ground and hands education over to private enterprise gets bloody knighted after authorising the knighting of New Zealand's greatest ever con-man Prime Minister John Key who was more famous for his pony tail pulling and his tax-payer donation of millions to the Hillary Foundation than anything else.

 One hundred million dollars National spent creating a non-existing problem that made dozens of private companies a fortune fixing a problem that never actually existed.

What do you have to do to "Not get knighted" Good heavens Bill English and John Key combined make Bob Jones look like an honest person, and when you include Roger Douglas into the mix its almost totally unbelievable. All four were knighted for the wrong reasons.

They must feel ashamed now for accepting their gifted and undeserved knighthoods.

Deeply religious Bill English I'm sure would agree with the words of J.C attached to the picture relating to the famous feeding of the masses. Lets hope that Housing NZ makes good its now public promise to correct its absolutely disgusting failure in regard to its handling of this now infamous event.

2. Sometimes we have to choose in which direction we head, forward to a future based on hope and dreams of a better and more equal social life / fairness balance for all.
Or by looking back to periods in history when hate, greed, obvious racist behaviour and fear ruled the world...its strange how many of our most heroic periods were really nothing more than giving ones life to protect the wealthy while those who did the fighting actually received nothing beneficial. The US, NZ effort in Vietnam proves this clearly. 
 If Ronald Mortensen was a Kiwi we'd most likely knight him...this from a US group of concerned citizens, yes I know its unbelievable that this racist bigot could even be considered for the role Trump has nominated him is their message...

Ronald Mortensen.

Dear Friend,

Block and resist racist Ronald Mortensen's nomination to oversee refugees
Ronald Mortensen has spread racist smears about immigrants, declared that undocumented immigrants routinely commit felonies, claimed foreign nationals carry serious disease into the United States and railed against Dreamers – implying most are criminals and demanding all pay restitution for their supposed crimes.1

And he put it all in writing as a fellow for an anti-immigrant think tank that the Southern Poverty Law Center has called a hate group.2 Now, xenophobe-in-chief Donald Trump has nominated Mortensen to lead the U.S. government's efforts to aid refugees – and it's up to us to stop him.
Tell the Senate: A racist like Ronald Mortensen has no place overseeing refugee resettlement. Click here to sign the petition.

Mortensen has smeared all immigrants as "murderers, identity thieves, gang bangers, and other assorted thugs."3 He is a fellow for the Center for Immigration Studies, a favorite organization of racist Trump adviser Stephen Miller that has already funneled other hate-mongers into the administration and which the Southern Poverty Law Center has labeled a hate group for its efforts to demonize immigrants and people of color. Mortensen's work has even been shared approvingly by outright white nationalist figures.4
Only an unabashed racist like Donald Trump would even think of picking Mortensen to be Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees and Migration, a role that involves overseeing refugee resettlement programs and building strong relationships with people around the world. The Trump administration has sought to impose a bigoted refugee ban and is now sabotaging refugee resettlement through layers of bureaucracy – and appointments like Mortensen – in an attempt to destroy America's legacy of welcoming those fleeing danger and violence.5
The White House has tried to sweep Mortensen's ties to CIS under the rug by focusing on his time at the United States Agency for International Development. But a former USAID coworker said Mortensen's work was unexceptional and far from high-level leadership, and he implied that  

Mortensen's hate-group affiliations were the real reason he was nominated.6
Democrats have blasted Trump's pick, and Republican senator Jeff Flake has already announced he will oppose Mortensen's nomination.7 

We have a chance to keep Mortensen out of office and show that white supremacy ideology is unacceptable, even in the age of Trump – but to do it, we need to make sure every senator knows that a vote for Mortensen is a vote for all of his horrible, racist ideas.

3The Nortcote By-election is over and

National's Dan Bidois has won the Northcote by-election, and will represent the electorate at Parliament for the remainder of the term.
National's newest MP Dan Bidois. Photo: Supplied.
Labour's Shanan Halbert has called Mr Bidois to concede.
With 100 percent of the vote counted, Mr Bidois is on 10,147 votes, ahead of Mr Halbert's 8,785, meaning there's 1362 votes in it.
The Northcote seat was vacated when long-time National MP Jonathan Coleman resigned from Parliament to head a private healthcare company, Acurity Health Group. He did so just six months after being re-elected to the role.
Mr Bidois' win means National will remain the largest singular party in Parliament, with 56 seats.
Internal polls heading in to the by-election showed very different stories, with Labour's targeted polls indicating a two point gap between the candidates.

This evening's result has the gap between the two top candidates at 1362 votes, which is a nearly 5,000 vote improvement on Mr Halbert's result against Dr Coleman at the 2017 General Election.
However accounting for a lower voter turnout, National pulled in around the same percentage of the votes as it did at the last election - 52 percent.

Many Green Party voters opted for Labour this time around, bolstering Mr Halbert's vote.
The Green Party's Rebekah Juang and the ACT Party's Stephen Berry came in at 579 and 157 votes respectively.

This from the Labour Party:

National’s majority has been slashed from 6210 to 1362 – if this trend continues, Northcote will be turning red at the 2020 election.

That's it for this blog have a good Sunday and stay warm.

Jacinda Vs Anne Actions speak louder than words.

This is being done without consent...


 On the very same day I received a handout in my letter box fronted by a smiling Jacinda Ardern I received an email from Anne Hunt of Horowhenua. Jacinda stated "I'm proudly ambitious for this amazing country and those of us who call it home"...

Anne Hunt suggests that the Labour Party, Green Party and NZ First...
"Should all be ashamed of yourselves!!!!!

You decide if she is correct...we should judge people by what they do rather than by what they say...Here is Anne's email: Its worth a read...

Subject: Unconsented Earthworks desecrating Lake Horowhenua
Importance: High

Well, Jacinda, the relationship between Phil Taueki as a direct descendent of Taueki, a Treaty signatory, and the Crown has well and truly been rent asunder.
This is a fine gift for her Majesty the Queen of England on the very day this country celebrates her birthday!
The attached photographs should be self-explanatory and a damning indictment on all those who sat on their hands as we pleaded for assistance.
This desecration took place on the dewatered area of Lake Horowhenua, the scene of the great Mua-Upoko massacre by Ngati Toa, as a result of Te Rauaparaha’s threat to exterminate this tribe. Only Taueki as the Ariki and a few others survived.
Phil Taueki would have liked to halt this work carried out last Friday, but the site instructions were for the security guard on site at all times to summon the police. Still not in the best of health following his hospitalisation earlier this year, he did not want to risk arrest and incarceration over the Queen’s birthday weekend. He was accordingly in agony that he could not protect those slain from desecration of their grounds.
This work was carried out despite :
·         The Horowhenua District Council not yet filing a resource consent to discharge Levin’s stormwater into Lake Horowhenua
·         Horowhenua’s Mayor having no knowledge of this activity
·         The Chair of the Lake Domain Board having no knowledge of this activity
·         An application to divert the stormwater that has been before the Maori Land Court since 2012
·         The Maori Appellate Court determining that Judge Doogan has a conflict of interests with Matt Sword, a lawyer who chairs the Lake Trust
Since 1973, Levin’s stormwater has been discharged into this privately-owned and environmentally-degraded Lake.
I was a Horowhenua District Councillor in 2011 when Phil Taueki came to the council with a formal submission asking council to divert Levin’s stormwater from his lake. For his troubles, he was trespassed from the building.
As you are well aware, a Horowhenua District Council manager issued instructions for Phil Taueki’s water to be disconnected. Stoically, Phil Taueki has lived without a water supply for 566 days now, even though he was hospitalised earlier this year seriously ill and is now suffering from a chronic illness.
Yet throughout all this, this Government has sat on its hands, merely politely acknowledging receipt of my e-mails.
I therefore hold each and every one of you accountable for this desecration that has caused Phil Taueki and other members of his whanau such anguish.
I doubt whether any single one of you can imagine how dreadful he must have felt last Friday having to stand by while a large digger and front-end loader trampled the ground to unearth an area of land that has remained undisturbed for a century or more, because this is the site where many warriors, women and children were slaughtered as they fled their artificial islands of refuge. As James Cowan reported, the waters ran red with blood, and seagulls screeched in from the shore to peck on the flesh of their carcasses.
He had to stand by and let this desecration happen, because your police force would have thrown him into jail if he objected!
You should all be ashamed of yourselves!!!!!

Most sincerely
Anne Hunt
