We need to address the Waitangi Tribunal Claims. The fact is, this servant settler government is an illegal entity. This wrongly proclaimed government is not a treaty partner to Maori, they never were a treaty partner and did not exist at the time the Treaty was signed. The Treaty of Waitangi partnership concluded in 2005, the only people standing at the time were and are Maori, because there is no treaty partner now, the Queen has absolved her right by default. The servant settler government has stolen her mandate and power of attorney and have usurped their servant role.
We quantify that on the 6th February 1997 Maori did a demonstration at Buckingham Palace, London, where HRH Queen Elizabeth II put off the changing of the Guard for the demonstration. Putting off the changing of the guard is not an everyday event and so we knew it was quite significant. One of our Rangatira was allowed to go through the gates of Buckingham Palace to lay down a petition which was accepted from the Queen’s secretary, Robert Fellowes at the time.
A week later we received a reply from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. In regards to her two-page letter response, the first page was of all her titles as Queen of England and Wales, as the Queen of Ireland and Hanover, as Queen of the League of Nations, as Queen of the Commonwealth of Nations and everything else that she is. The second page of the letter read “I, as a Legally constituted Head of State, the Queen of New Zealand, have sent your petition to my servant the governor-general of New Zealand (in 1997 Sir Michael Hardie Boys) to take to my servant government (1997 National Party Jenny Shipley)”. So, this is how the servant settler government has been operating since 1840. They have conducted a treasonable offence and usurped their servant role and in doing so, have stolen the power of attorney and mandate of Queen Elizabeth II.
This servant settler government have taken the Queen off the Coat of Arms and put their Grace Kelly look alike in her place and further claim equality with Nga Rangatira (the Chiefs). They are not the equivalent in the slightest by any stretch of the imagination, they are just joe blogs ordinary citizens.
Minister Andrew Little was told publicly by Rangatira about the situation of stealing the mandate and power of attorney of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and that they have usurped their Servant role. They have the boys in blue, the blue gang (police) to come along and support his/their illegal activities. Well, might is still not right, they are still a criminal organisation.
Waitangi Tribunal Settlements, the latest smoke screen attempt at getting Maori to cede sovereignty, for when Maori do sign the treaty settlement, the last clause or article will read “Maori cede sovereignty to her majesty, the queen in right of New Zealand”. Merely another counterfeit effort to get Maori by fraud to cede sovereignty to the likes of a fraudulent government who will use this as tools to engage further into their future criminal performances. This information needs to be understood, there are criminal acts that are going on and the only people that don’t know are Maori.
Maori have bought into the narrative portrayed by this servant settler government forgetting the government is just a criminal organization, just a for profit corporation masquerading as a government. Maori need to understand these things. Any relation Maori have with this servant settler government is criminal. They are passing laws as if it were going out of fashion, yet do not have the right to pass laws. Before passing laws the servant settler government need to have a referendum and all they do is continue to attempt to take away the Mana of Maori.
Under Te Tiriti o Waitangi (Te Tiriti o Waitangi,) all resources of New Zealand belong to Maori. There are no legal banks registered in New Zealand, they are all Australian registered banks. Even the reserve bank of New Zealand is an Australian corporation that they established here in Aotearoa. They are prohibited from extracting resources here in New Zealand because the resources belong to Maori under Te Tiriti o Waitangi. Yet, the extraction process continues from New Zealand, shipping these inground assets to Australia and declaring them as Australian goods. This is how they are committing the fraud and we need to understand, Fraud is Fraud. There is no defence for fraud and when the people realise the servant settler governments fraudulent actions, it’s game over.
In 2016, a Friday after noon, 12 o clock midday New York time a class action was made in the security exchange commissions in New York, in the state department. This action was a lien, that was taken out against the for-profit corporation. Otherwise known as her majesty the queen in right of nz including its many other titles. This lien holds today, it cannot be removed. 2’o clock that afternoon the then prime minister John Key arrived for a six day state visit. He was shown the lien which named him in it. He immediately cancelled his state visit and came back to New Zealand arriving early Sunday morning and resigned as prime minister of New Zealand Monday morning. Maori are beginning to monetize the lien.
Throughout the country the government has promised Tens of millions of dollars to resolve injustices to the Hapu (tribes) of our Maori people. One such Hapu (Tribe), Te Arawa, signed up for the 200 million dollar settlement over lake Rotorua, however, when the people went to the arranged hui to collect their settlement, Helen Clarke prime minister of the day, basically said “well, we are not giving you 200 million we are giving your lake back”. The lake cost 164 million, which gives them 36 million left, 22 million is for back rates, the 14 million balance you will collect at a later date, like years later. These Hapu (Tribe) received nothing and as for the “returned lake”, these Hapu did not actually get the lake back, this is how fraudulent this entity is, the servant settler government own the air space above the lake, the minerals beneath the lake and they own the water, all while the Hapu (Tribe) own the silt on the bottom of the lakebed. So, what can you do with the lake bed? how can you extract an income from the lake bed? This is the fraud that they are committing, the treaty settlements are flawed, their payment schemes are flawed. Other than two main Hapu (Tribe) Ngai Tahu and Tainui, no Hapu (Tribe) has had their grievances settled properly and a lot of the other Hapu(Tribe) are still in dispute because Maori are not prepared to give away their sovereignty. The servant settler government is using these toxic antics to badger and sucker our people into receiving their defective settlements to enforce the last clause or article that will read along the lines of Maori cede sovereignty to the crown in right of New Zealand. Which is all they are after.
Another thing is, Jacinda Ardern taking her baby to the United Nations, touting her baby in the UN like a gypsy. Maori made a big noise about it in New York where people started to look at her speeches and realised what she did was speak about how Maori were child bashers, murderers, woman bashers, stating their jails are full of Maori , and many other negative declarations.
The New Zealand servant settler government legalized the psychoactive substances act in 2013, they fed the drugs out to all gangs, set up Methamphetamine labs and sat back to take in all the money derived from these criminal acts. They have their narrative working, the guy Dunne from the national party brought out synthetic drugs and when it got a hold of our people, they withdrew the act. Too late, the people were addicted. Now they are trying to legislate for synthetic cannabis and synthetic hemp, these synthetic drugs are more diabolical than anything else. The biggest business this servant settler government is conducting is drug dealing and it has an impact on our Maori people and we take exception to that, they are criminals and we want them to be dealt too.
Maori intend to send a request to Trump to sign an extradition treaty in response to his actions of “draining their swamp out” of their criminals in America and unfortunately, they are coming to New Zealand. It is essential that we deport them back to their own country. This servant settler government are criminals and are taking advantage of the overseas swamp drain and surrounding themselves with criminal people with a hidden agenda endeavouring to take over and subdue us. They aim to relegate Maori to ghetto status, to send us to reservations, all to take over our land and claim our sovereign rights. Maori must stand up and understand our narrative that they are criminals, maranga mai, maranga mai, maranga mai.
Minister Andrew Little has set up the Ngapuhi Sovereign Fund, giving Ngapuhi people access to funds with accountability to the governing funder which is the crown in right of new zealand. Once again, there is no crown in New Zealand, only the crown in right, a profit corporation registered in New York and that entity is masquerading as a government. They are a third party under the Queen of England as her servant. The crown in right of New Zealand are not our treaty partners and have no right to negotiate with Ngapuhi Rangatira. Even to think they have any authority to sit with our Rangatira is a fictitious dream on their behalf.
This government does not have a right to serve in new zealand let alone a right to be here in New Zealand. Everything is a fraud which is the nature of this beast system. This servant settler government of new zealand have NO Jurisdiction over our Tangata Whenua (Maori People) and why? Because of King William IV Royally Proclaimed Flag, Te Whakaputanga Kara. The Kara had a 21 gun salute by the HMS Alligator on the day of being raised and gazetted on the 19th August 1835, in support by the Declaration Of Independence, the Wakameninga o Nga Rangatira o Nga Hapu (the Confederation of Hereditary Chiefs) and Te Tiriti o Waitangi and we only refer to the Maori Te Tiriti O Waitangi, there is no other treaty in the whole of Aotearoa. So, wake up Ngapuhi! Wake up Maori! Do not be deceived by these false governmental felons and sell on our sovereignty for peanuts.
Nau Mai, Haere Mai e te whanau, step out of this system that is making our people porangi. Take a journey that our Tupuna travelled, stand up your Whanau/ Hapu, reclaim your whenua and journey to freedom.
