Prayers that God gives this family strength to endure.
Good Lord. Some honest reporting. I'm sure that will be stopped ASAP.
From Hobson's Pledge via Don Brash
We've spent the past few hours going through the agreements between Act, NZ First, and National, as well as the ministerial appointments, with a fine-tooth comb so we can provide you with the highlights.
First of all, I’m sure I speak for all those who have supported Hobson’s Pledge since our formation in 2016 when I say how absolutely delighted we are that Casey Costello has not only been elected to Parliament but has stepped right into a ministerial role inside Cabinet.
Casey will be Minister for Seniors, Minister of Customs, and Associate Minister for Health, Immigration, and Police.
We can be confident that there will be at least one minister at the Cabinet table speaking up for what we stand for!
The three parties have agreed to 'On-going Decision-Making Principles' to underpin their work together. I want to draw your attention to the principle they are calling 'Pro-democracy':
"upholding the principles of liberal democracy, including equal citizenship, parliamentary sovereignty, the rule of law and property rights, especially with respect to interpreting the Treaty of Waitangi."
Reading this in the list of 8 principles, I couldn't help but feel hopeful about the rest of the document. And that hope wasn't misplaced. Both the Act/National and the NZ First/National coalition agreements have significant policies for Hobson's Pledge supporters.
Abolish the Māori Health Authority.
Commit that the name of New Zealand will not change unless a referendum is conducted.
Ensure all public service departments have their primary name in English, except for those specifically related to Māori.
Require the public service departments and Crown Entities to communicate primarily in English.
The Coalition Government will defend the principle that New Zealanders are equal before the law, with the same rights and obligations, and with the guarantee of the privileges and responsibilities of equal citizenship in New Zealand.
...will not advance policies that seek to ascribe different rights and responsibilities to New Zealanders on the basis of their race or ancestry.
Commitment to remove co-governance from the delivery of public services.
...it is the Government’s expectation that public services should be prioritised on the basis of need, not race.
Restore the right to a local referendum on the establishment or ongoing use of Māori wards, including requiring a referendum on any wards established without referendum at the next Local Body elections.
Stop all work on He Puapua.
...the Coalition Government does not recognise the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) as having any binding legal effect on New Zealand.
Amend section 58 of the Marine and Coastal Area Act to make clear Parliament’s original intent.
Conduct a comprehensive review of all legislation that includes “The Principles of the Treaty of Waitangi” and replace all such references with specific words relating to the relevance and application of the Treaty, or repeal the references.
Act/National (we won't repeat the policies already mentioned above):
Restore balance to the history curriculum.
Examine the Māori and Pacific Admission Scheme (MAPAS).
Immediately issue stop-work notices on Three Waters (with assets returned to council ownership).
Uphold the principles of liberal democracy, including equal citizenship and parliamentary sovereignty.
Ensure government contracts are awarded based on value, without racial discrimination.
Issue a Cabinet Office circular to all central government organisations that it is the Government’s expectation that public services should be prioritised on the basis of need, not race, within the first six months of Government.
Repeal the Canterbury Regional Council (Ngāi Tahu Representation) Act 2022.
Introduce a Treaty Principles Bill based on existing ACT policy and support it to a Select Committee as soon as practicable.
Was it an inside job and demo'd - obviously. But where is the Israel link ? Could just as easily have been our own Deep State - Bushies.
Poetic ain't it.?
I would recommend the Pacific without the island.
And Scott Ritter has long since passed his use-by date.
Amen. Much better. Pure class.
These bastards danced in the streets when the towers came down.
Plow Gaza into the sea.
And the ATF
Still waiting for a non-smartass answer. How do you donate to Trump directly and not through WinRed ?
Well the Trump donation page sends you to WinRed and has for over 7 years.
How else do you donate to the Trump campaign ? More than willing to entertain other options.
Fools Buffoons Idiots
Hope they move to Gaza.....
The pict is a still from a video posted on the State of Israel's official Twitter account. This is the link to the video:
I posted this as a response to you CallMeAl because your post was perhaps the most reasonable response to the OP, thoughtful and considered. I will not post to nor engage with the anti-Israel folks here. If they can not recognize evil when it happens that is thier problem.
The relevance of an ant fart
She was indeed....
Scroll through these - even (Lord Save My Soul) Hillary was a cutie..
The question is what happens to Demorat women as they age vs Conservative women ?
Well worth the read on this by Sundance at The Conservative Treehouse.
This has the potential of being a HUGE decision folks.
This will be every bit as defining as the recent SC decisions regarding the 2A and Roe,
Pray for the correct decision.
Very well said sir. Particuarly like the link to Q-225.
"...You are the calm before and during the storm."
I'm wondering, just as a personal note , have you "seen the elephant?"
At least she's better looking than Kamala...
