NZ NEWS. LIES. COVER UPS. GREED. TRUST ABUSE. ECONOMIC BULLYING, LAND BUY UPS. RACIST INEQUALITY PERSECUTION, TEENS & YOUNG ADULTS DISCRIMINATION & HEALTHY CONFESSIONS AHEAD – 18th JANUARY 2012
News: It was very much a politics driven show. Click on pic to see.
For my own reference – What is remembered of news and news culture, follows…?
Lance Armstrong confesses to drug useage to Oprah yet he still shows hardness of heart (eg: athlete competiveness combined with cheating has not caught up with his brain in real time). He does have an empire amassed to save, yet the contrition is not apparent yet. Meaning, Lance is still suffering from pumped-up, high profile fame addiction… perhaps.
Performance enhanced ‘med science’ was the reason for his 7 tour de france wins. I don’t respect that easily with “winning” athletes. A faker is a faker, Period. No judgement intended though. Fame addiction and stealing other people’s best endeavors was what Lance’s backers achieved with Lance. NZ’s PM John Key‘s publicst no.2 talks on phone (as an independant journalist, apparently… :) while a pic of plane is shown. Apparently Antarctica is on the cards. An Italian restaurant gets AMAZING press in Otautahi (Christchurch)… how did that happen?! On them. Tauranga grieves lost citizens in Kenya. Where I live, we have the same story… metaphorically speaking. Yet, literally too.
Economist and soccer club owner, Gareth Morgan enlightens how $1b+ in loans were issued in NZ in a week. That means people have been encouraged to buy up houses in bundles. A monopoly now exists of ‘cluster-homes’ owners. NZ’s govt. were the architects of it. It is greed and fear mentality – yet wise investment too. :) (more…)
In 2012 NZ leadership was attacked and semi-dismantled.
We see key politicians (Maori’s most senior political spokespeople) announcing intended resignations.
A clear Maori political voice on an equal level of economic prosperity for all Maori has not been allowed to be voiced in the land. It is not right, just, balanced or fair. It is also not in line with New Zealand’s founding spirit.
We see leading Maori politicians, thrown to angry middle class white folk to attack all too often ’for entertainment.’ They are used as distractions for people to vent frustration on, the Maori politicians time and attention diverted from doing a good job for Maori people, and thus all NZ’s best interests of the present and future.
We see unjust and meagre Treaty settlement offers presented to Maori. The apologies associated are worth a lot to Maori, yet the disrespect towards Iwi is continuing in business flows throughout a lot of NZ and the way resources are being allocated, used for profit. (more…)

NZ NEEDS TO CREATE JOBS FOR YOUTH, NOT UNDERVALUE YOUTH – OR YOUTH SHOULD START THEIR OWN BUSINESSES – NOTHING TO LOSE
There is an emphasise on framing youth as prisoners on the news. The real issue in New Zealand is creating jobs for youth and career trajectories. Not creating jobs to jail youth. If youth can get into thinking entrepreneurially younger… NZ will win all round.
We need a perspective shift in NZ. You don’t lift an 18 year old’s vote from them as an adult and then do nothing for them after you take the vote. Insane stuff. (more…)
Question: 1 in 7 NZ citizens are Maori… what Maori candidates have been nominated New Zealander of the Year?
For example, Sir Ralph Norris and Mark Solomon should definitely be in the running, right?
Where are the Maori nominees?

NEWS CAMERAS ZOOM IN ON DAVID SHEARER, LABOUR PARTY LEADER NEW ZEALAND, PRE-CHRISTMAS “SWEETENING” NZ
For many New Zealand families, a grinch’s Christmas is on the table this year. That’s being blunt frank honest. Change needs to happen real quick as people get set to jet to Aussie with the family for a holiday vacation. Yeah…
So what what are we doing to stop the grinch-engineered bleed (a record exodus in NZ of citizens moving to Australia)?
We are doing David Shearer politics as the end of year “sweetener” to a mean year for many NZ families and a series of failed policies that didn’t hold up during GFC sting, ‘white heist’ years. The news is being well recieved outside of his own party ranks.
Anyway, see where it’s at with Shearer for yourself by watching news clip (when it arrives). The Maori reporters sound excited in the news rheel. So that’s good. Leave a comment to say what you think of David Shearer and the Labour party, on this website if you want to. (more…)
MOVING FROM DENIAL INTO THE LIGHT – REQUIRES HONEST COURAGE, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO ENDING “TEEN BULLYING STRUCTURED” GREEDY-MEAN ECONOMIES
New Zealand’s last census was cancelled. A flaw in a gross oversight of democracy and unaccountability.
How are youth and young adults doing then?
Statistics New Zealand says:
“85,000 people aged 15 to 24 who are not in any education, training or employment- up 25 per cent under since NZ’s current government took power.”
–NZ Herald has a word on NZ’s denial of economic teen bullying and a need to get more real. We need to stop lying. Especially to our youth, who will lead us tomorrow. We cannot teach them to lie. (more…)
SHANE JONES TALKS NORTHLAND OIL – NOTHING TO LOSE IN A RACIST BATTLE OF ECONOMIC PERSECUTION AGAINST NEW ZEALAND’S INDIGENOUS PEOPLE
Oil Exploration News New Zealand:
Northland-based Labour list MP Shane Jones has again hit out at the Green Party for opposing development of the regions’s resources, including oil and gas, which he says could help reduce the disgusting levels of unemployment in New Zealand. (more…)
Press Release: Tribal Affairs & Ngai Tuhoe: “Tuhoe has reached an agreement with the Crown for a $170 million settlement of historic grievances.
That puts it up there among the largest settlements to date, with Tainui’s and Ngai Tahu’s settlements both worth $170 million, but in the mid-1990s.
The agreement will see the Urewera National Park given its own legal identity and managed by a governance board with equal numbers of Tuhoe and the Crown.
Decision will be by consensus, meaning that both parties will have a veto right. Public access would be guaranteed on the same access as now.
Both parties have registered their interest in getting the park recognised by UNESCO as having unique values.
Treaty Negotiations Minister Chris Finlayson made the announcement at Parliament this afternoon with iwi leaders Tamati Kruger and Kirsty Luke.
Mr Finlayson said it was ”a huge significant settlement” and some of the breaches against Tuhoe were the most severe.
“Huge areas of the iwi’s land were wrongly confiscated and more purchased unjustly.
“Military campaigns against Tuhoe prisoners and civilians were described even at the time as ‘extermination’ and the Crown employed a scorched earth policy in Tuhoe settlements in the Te Urewera.”
Mr Finlayson said one aspect of the settlement described as ”mana motuhake redress” would address improved relationships between the Crown and Tuhoe and the delivery of social services.
The parties will spend the next 12 weeks drafting a deed of settlement with the aim of it being signed in December and passed in legislation next year.
Previous negotiations caused a political furore in 2010 when Prime Minister John Key took the return of the national park off the negotiating table, promoting Maori Party co-leader Tariana Turia to question Mr Key’s honour.
Mr Kruger said it was a good offer and something he thought would be acceptable to Tuhoe.
“One of the things it attempts to do is solve the disconnection over the last 100 or so years between Tuhoe and Te Urewera and this is a lot more real than symbolism.”
“These settlements don’t necessarily represent an answer but rather a means by which each every iwi moves on and creates their own wealth and their own sense of security.”
He said the offer was considered to be ”a great leap forward which will allow Tuhoe to find mana motuhake and to find and secure that connection between themselves and Te Urewera.”
Mr Kruger said the plan was a 40-year programme with five-yearly reviews.
Ngai Tuhoe numbered about 35,000 and was the six largest iwi he believed. About 20 per cent of Tuhoe lived in the tribe’s rohe.
The chief negotiators for the Crown was former diplomat John Wood and he was assisted by former Prime Minister Jim Bolger, Mr Finlayson said.
Words Audrey Young. A hat doffingly significant day of Iwi testament in Tuhoe and The Crown’s ongoing relationship ahead.

On a birthday in the USA, my neighbors pooled together to get me a Robin Thicke concert ticket. They said, “he’s second generation Hollywood. He’s sexy. Robin really represents the best of L.A and the U.S. He doesn’t see color. You’d swear he is a black man.”
Always feeling like acclimation into the US was never done, I gratefully said, “Okay,” took the ticket and decided to check Robin in concert. I also got a strong recommend to go to Korean BBQ (LA does good ones) before the concert, however I flagged that idea.
At the concert, there were many white celebrity actor stars. This was in the days before Robin was a big star like he is now. He was medium and rising then. At the time Robin was the warm up act to Dream Girls Oscar winning artist, Jennifer Hudson, Robin wasn’t seen as billable to carrry a concert on his own. Jennifer’s family hadn’t had the brutal family murder saga at that point. When she sung, the roof was raised. You felt goose bump tingles at the back of your spine. He was cupid-curio combined, yet real and a local boy of the hood.
[Celeb News -Parsee Kids Parenting Club of the USA: Robin Thicke & Julian are Grocery Guys, Bristol Farms, West Hollywood]
Surreal. Robin was an anomoly. You’d swear he was black when he performed. He made everyone feel like Stevie Wonder or Ray Charles because if you were blind, you wouldn’t have known what ‘color’ Robin was. So he was Wonder Charles all in one too maybe. He was humble, super sexy, musically gifted, soulful, definitely a sexy symbol, yet his gospel music section let you know where his passion for music first came from. Although the Latino, white and black single thirty-something girls danced in the front of the stage as if the American Messiah of cool had dethroned Tom Jones of Wales standard as a sexy singer doing the art of sex symbol music-cool.
When Robin performed, celebrities canoodled in their seats all around me, fully capturing the romance that Robin brought as an artist who reinforced their Hollywood ideals. They were lost in love. (more…)
APPRECIATING TEENAGERS THROUGH JOB CREATION & CREATING YOUNG ADULT OXYGEN, SPACE, CULTURE, EMPLOYMENT PROSPECTS IN NEW ZEALAND
New Zealand has beautiful scenary. At the moment we’re trying to get back to a balance where youth are the centre of a nation’s dream potential.
We got a bit old in our views of entitlement, a bit top heavy greedy. A bit selfish too. We became more racist and mean towards non-white kids. We starved these kids hard, their families and their parents too, we punished. Overall, in New Zealand, we starved youth. We took their jobs from them. Thus their earning potential too. (more…)
