Deception & the UN Migration pact


How long will we tolerate deception as the first stage in communication by the state to the people?

We have become accustomed to deception by the government. Indeed, whenever a contentious issue arises that is of importance to New Zealanders, deception has been the default pattern for Labour-led governments. Labour assures us that it is in our best interests to think the way they say we should.

Examples of deception over contentious issues include the journey towards the redefinition of marriage when Labour MP Tim Barnett stated,

?The Civil Union Bill is an acceptable alternative; marriage can remain untouched.”

Helen Clark was even stronger and was quoted as saying,

?Marriage is only for heterosexuals. The Government is not ? underline ? not, changing the Marriage Act. That will remain as an option only for heterosexual couples.?

As expected, once the civil union bill was passed, it was not long before marriage was redefined, much to the glee of both Barnett and Clark.

During the contentious early days of the anti-smacking bill, Green MP Sue Bradford stated,

?Smacking has never been a criminal offence, and still isn’t.?

Helen Clark responded to an interviewer who asked if smacking should be banned with,

?Absolutely not! I think you?re trying to defy human nature.?

Again, several years after, there had been exponential increases in notifications, many good parents had been dragged through the courts, children had been ripped from their homes and all with no reduction in actual cases of abuse. Sue Bradford responded to the latest numbers with,

?My bill was never intended to solve that problem.?

New Conservative, the first political party, later joined by ACT and National, to publicly stand and condemn the UN Compact for Migration, notes that this Labour/Greens/NZ First government are still trying to tell us what to think. They are trying to to pacify us by saying whatever it takes to get us to close our mouths and conform.

?I would not sign something that took away our sovereign right to manage our own immigration, but because there’s been even the smallest shred of doubt, we’re going to seek some information.? ?My gut says, based on what’s on paper, this does not affect our own migration.?

PM Jacinda Ardern.

?The only concern we would have is whether or not we were compromising this country’s sovereignty.?

Deputy PM Winston Peters

?It is paramount that New Zealand, a responsible international citizen, be part of the cooperative solutions initiated by the Compact?

Golriz Ghahraman, Green MP.

At the Morocco UN migration conference, the 164 countries expected to sign were asked if there were any issues with the pact. New Zealand declined to raise any concerns, and the motion was passed. All of the participating countries, including New Zealand, have now adopted the UN migration pact.

Applause followed the passing of the motion.

Immediately following the conference, Germany’s chancellor Angela Merkel stated,

?So then, during the UN General Assembly next week, the pact will once again be up for debate and a decision will be made on whether to accept it. At this time, a member state can demand a vote. When two-thirds of the represented countries agree then it is valid for all. That?s how majority decision-making works.?

“When two-thirds of the represented countries agree then it is valid for all.?

Once again, we ask how long will we tolerate deception as first stage communication from the state to the people?

The New Conservatives demand that the Labour-led government respect the sovereignty of our great nation and withdraw from continuing engagement with the UN migration pact, thereby rejoining our traditional allies and regaining some of the integrity we have lost through this push against our sovereignty.
