Guy Hatchard: Jacinda Ardern and her government launch a master class in PR spin

Ardern PR spin news

Two days ago Jacinda Ardern said her government was about to make a significant Covid policy announcement.

Yesterday we were subjected to an hour long government extravaganza where a succession of expert politicians urged us yet again to wear masks (we already are), get boosted, leave our windows open (in winter), test frequently, and isolate (presumably whenever you feel a need to hide). Several times we were urged ‘to do our bit’ to get through the darkest days of winter (often our winter daytime temperatures are higher than those in the UK summer).

The language at least has evolved, even if the policies were unchanged. Team of five million helping each other became the battle of the army of five million. The new battle lines promised tighter ‘red setting’ lockdown rules in the pipeline to be deployed against future variants. It was suggested that very soon we would probably be offered boosters at shorter time intervals (we note that social media suggestions nine months ago that we would have to take regular boosters were labeled conspiracy theories by government scientists).

N95 masks will be free to those considered vulnerable. Dr Ayesha Verrall described them as ‘incredibly effective (??)’.

GPs will be able to pre-approve Paxlovid and other antivirals for patients they consider vulnerable even if they aren’t sick (warning: common adverse effects of paxlovid include dysgeusia, diarrhea, vomiting, increased blood pressure and headache, no adverse effect data available for some ingredients and pregnant women).

Inaccurate RAT tests known to give variable readings will be more readily available at no cost.

Remarkably MSM lined up this morning to sing Ardern’s praises. The Retailers Association called for the unmasked to restrict themselves to online shopping (two months ago they were calling for masking to end).

How does she do it?

Ardern rigidly controls the content of public dialogue. The carefully scripted press conference silently shut the door on scientific discussion and left all of us in the hands of carefully reframed government policy without referencing published science.

Are masks incredibly effective as Dr Verrall announced? This suggestion is frankly laughable, read for example this article which summarises how countrywide high mask use in overseas nations has been ineffective at stemming Covid transmission or read this study of the deleterious health effects of prolonged mask use.

Are boosters essential to stem transmission, reinfection, hospitalisation, and death? New Zealand MoH data is unequivocal, the vaccinated including boosted individuals are currently more likely to be infected, hospitalised, or die with Covid than the unvaccinated.

A concerning study of reinfection among five million US veterans concludes there is no benefit of vaccination in reducing the higher impact of Covid reinfection, currently announced to be running at 2-3% in New Zealand and expected to rise.

Are record levels of excess all cause mortality linked to Covid infection? According to our Ministry of Health—NO—but this alarming and unexplained fact was not covered by yesterday’s press conference.

Ardern has shut down critics of mRNA vaccination safety, but the government (including the entire loyal opposition) have been careful to let unfounded conspiracy theories in favour of mRNA super powers to spread unchecked in New Zealand.

Thus herd immunity is according to paid government scientists a conspiracy theory, whilst mRNA and flu vaccination is superior to natural immunity and lasts for a lifetime according to government advertising (how gullible do they think we are?).

Adverse effects of vaccination are also labelled a conspiracy theory

This last has had a huge influence on public opinion in New Zealand. Contrary to all the accepted canons of drug safety, the government has informed the public that temporal association between vaccination and serious adverse effects does not amount to grounds for causality, and rebuked those suggesting otherwise.

On December 15th Dr. Astrid Koornneef, Director of our National Immunisation Programme wrote to me that although the MoH is aware that there there is a temporal relationship between adverse effects and vaccination:

“this temporal association is not indicative of a causal relationship to the vaccine”

Thus people suffering adverse effects such as stroke, heart attacks, sudden onset cancer, neurological conditions, etc. following mRNA vaccination have been assured by the Ministry of Health that these are unrelated.

Stories trying to hide the embarrassing prevalence of these ‘unrelated conditions’ have been allowed by our government and other governments to circulate unchallenged in the media. Thus our population has blissfully absorbed such absurdities as:

  • Holiday heart syndrome (don’t enjoy yourself too much)
  • Coffee-induced blood clotting (Coffee drinking dates from the 9th century)
  • The young shouldn’t over exercise (couch potatoes are in)
  • Gardening could be causing heart attacks (fresh air and sunshine are out)
  • Climate change is driving excess mortality (not just floods and fires )
  • Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (which is not actually a disease, just a descriptive term for unexplained sudden deaths)
  • The unvaccinated miraculously pass on Covid to others even if they are not ill

Published scientific dialogues about vaccine safety are suppressed

A recent study shows that 93% of the unvaxxed, but only 40% of the vaxxed develop anti-nucleocapsid antibodies (N-antibodies) which are required for broad and lasting immunity. If we were to apply these figures to New Zealand—7% of the 15% of the population currently unvaxxed may get recurring infection—equivalent to just 1% of the population. Whereas 60% of the 85 % vaxxed NZers may get reinfections equivalent to 51% of the population. If this study is to be relied upon, we have set up almost half our total population to be vulnerable to chronic covid reinfections.

Ardern and her scientific advisers have decided that this kind of discussion is off-limits for New Zealanders. We are being treated like naughty children who are not allowed to stay up late(??) and watch The Muppets on TV.

The government desperately wants us to think that the pandemic is not of our own making

We are not allowed to ask whether Covid came from a biolab (this has been labelled as a conspiracy theory by funded government scientists).

Complex scientific questions are off limits for the public. Therefore New Zealanders are unaware of the increasing natural selection of variants which have learned to evade vaccines precisely because mRNA vaccines fail to prevent both infection and transmission. Credentialled scientists overseas are asking: Is vaccination driving Covid variant evolution and contributing to poor outcomes, reinfection, lowered immunity, and adverse reactions? These critical scientific questions are being investigated, tested, and analysed, but not in New Zealand.

Aside from Covid cases which actually make up a small percentage of hospital admissions and deaths, we are not allowed to know why so many people are in hospital and why record numbers are dying.

Ardern is practiced at redirecting public opinion from disturbing truths. Her government is handing out financial rewards to those who don’t ask questions. Compliant media received financial support, there are financial rewards and vouchers to vaccinate, substantial extra payments to GPs for Covid work, and now government departments are giving extra days of paid sick leave so we don’t begin to question why we are getting so ill so often with such a variety of complaints.

If you have a friend or a family member who has fallen unexpectedly ill, you need to ask questions. Politicians skilled in PR spin are not serving us well.

  1. Yeah I’m not buying what you are pushing Labour and for that matter the other mainstream political party’s. I wont be voting for any of you ever again, either. So market you proverbial’s off at this tax payers and others expense. This Kiwi is not listening anymore and I know a lot of other people who feel the same way. I hope if anything spreads, its a desire for new party’s with integrity, who represent the genuine interests of New Zealanders.

    • Get tested with what?
      For a virus that does not ostensibly exist as a specific stand alone virus
      No virus has ever been isolated separated nor identified
      Which was a computer construct model
      The definition of isolated changed
      And the supposed virus identified
      As a new virus
      How do we get tested for a virus that does not exist?
      That relies on fraudulent results of a PCR Test
      Like voting
      Because there is only one party that controls both sides
      Two wings attached to the same corrupt body
      Changed around every so often so as to maintain the illusion of democracy
      Democracy is based on the jewish Sanhedrin
      Pharisees Sadducee’s
      National Labour
      Nasi the speaker
      The whole political spectrum is flawed
      And in need of radical scrutiny and overhaul

  2. The “correlation does not equal causation” mindset is one of the most irritating, most pure rage-inducing things I’ve ever encountered. Stubborn denial in the face of observable evidence.

    Guy#1: Don’t stick your hand in those flames, you’ll burn.

    Guy#2: That’s absurd farfetched nonsense! (Sticks his hand in the fire and burns)

    Guy#1: I TOLD YOU!!

    Guy#2: correlation does not equal causation ????

    A year ago a myriad of true medical and scientific experts around the world predicted everything we’re seeing unfold now, and people still refuse to believe it.

    “Nope, just because I never had heart problems, and then you warned me not to take the vaccine because it would cause heart problems, and now I DO in fact have heart problems, doesn’t mean there’s any kind of a connection there…”

    How are so many people still so fast asleep?

    • An old friend of mine just had blood clots after their fourth shot, he is a GP, and almost died. The hospital told him it was due to the vaccine, but absurdly he does not believe them. His faith in modern medicine undimmed. This is the power of PR gripping the world.

      • A friend of mine, also in the medical profession. Has aged 10 years this last 18 month. She’s had 2 jabs, then earlier this year got her 1st booster. Soon after suffered heart pain, hospitalised with no clear diagnosis. She got covid last month, and now is upset because she now has to wait another 2 month to get her second booster. Watching her from being a active health middle aged woman, to now become a frail old lady, all after getting jabbed. Some people are just addicted to the jabs, they cant get enough.

    • The problem is the Jo public, absolutely thick as two planks. Telegram is full of idiots posting their dire situation after getting the jabs and yet will deny, deny, deny, their pitiful situation has anything to do with the jab! Its truly mind boggling!!

  3. Herd immunity has been achieved from the jab. Herd of 4.5 million, now immune to “the science” and any common sense.
    Culling of the herd may occur.

  4. Pandemic will continue until the next election for sure. Jabcinda would know when the next manufactured virus will be out at least a few weeks in advance I believe.

    Whewn it comes to death and hospital admission data “with covid” fraud clearly includes all temporal associations and correlations, which are causal but not when truth is not in their favour.

    Disinformation research body, media monitoring body and associated laws are fully functional by the time of next election. Aotearoa New Zealand Public Media is getting hundreds of millions new money (at the rate of over 200 dollars per voter) and the media mercenaries will do their best supporting Jabcinda.

    The competition between the two NWO agents Jabcinda and Laxon means more money for media mercenaries and more homelessness and child poverty in addition to a sickly population.

    Jacinda is a curse. period.

  5. OH MY !!! this govt needs to go….period! I am so frustrated, why is there no common sense anymore ????????????

  6. Sheeples can just read the “What you need to know?” section of RNZ and acquire all the information you need in life.
    – Extracted from Jabcinda’s Ministry of Truth public release.

  7. Quite frankly I’m effin over it!! The doctors and nurses who are bleating about the fact that they are run off their feet and can’t cope know what’s causing this but continue to be complicit, I guess the money is just way more important than the people they promised to protect. So continue to cry a river doctors and nurses I don’t feel sorry for you. Should you develop a conscience or a decent set of bollocks and collectively say enough! and alert the public of these vax injuries that are and will continue to plague your workplace for a long time to come. You talk to each other you notice stuff and are to gutless to blow the whistle, some of you have tried and been shut down and bullied into staying silent. SPEAK UP!!!! People are DYING!!! Do the right thing or shut the eff up and get on with it.

  8. Ardone seems to be following the terrible Tedros, the Gates mate running the WHO. Truth in pharmacy is irrelevant to them.

    Guy Hatchard’s excellent article should form the basis for severe political action in NZ. The PM does not own NZ although the National Opposition seem to be asleep.

    We must resist masks as they make their own heath issues and cause social backwardation. Rebreathing polluted air is unhealthy. Pfizer Paxlovid is a high priced fizzer.
    Children should be protected against masks and sensitising jabs.
    NZ needs it’s life back.

  9. The ongoing clinical trials for Paxlovid DO NOT INCLUDE VACCINATED subjects:

    “Exclusion Criteria: Has received any SARS-CoV-2 vaccine within 12 months of screening”

    1) Paxlovid cannot be shown to be beneficial for anyone with a SARS-CoV-2 vaccine within 12 months of screening.
    2) Pharmac has no supporting evidence that Paxlovid be beneficial for vaccinated individuals.

  10. Mattias Desmet mentioned that Belgians were told that they were a ‘team of eleven million’, which suggests that this phrasing may have been something recommended to leaders of smaller countries. Would be interesting to know if they are now asked to be an ‘army of eleven million’? In any case, why the change to military language?

    • Yeah just like “build back better” “new world order” “new normal” “rules based order” etc etc.

      Klaus has given them instructions.

  11. It’s simply mind-boggling that the New Zealand public keep falling for Jacinda’s groupthink covid-cult spin.

    I know so many people now who have been double and triple-jabbed but have still contracted covid, some multiple times!

    Yet these people still believe the jabs are ‘safe and effective’, and are going for further ‘booster’ injections.

    Their gullibility is truly staggering. It would be funny if it wasn’t so tragic.

  12. I saw Chloe Ann King on Twitter claiming that the journalist saw one of her tweets and that gave them the idea for this article:


    It’s a bit of a sad day when lazy woke journalists see a tweet from one of the people they follow and claim it as ‘news’. See how propoganda works?

    Nah most of the businesses I know and the business owners have had a gutsful of the masks. They are losing customers because people prefer not to be masked when shopping. The crims and shoplifters are loving it though – can’t see their faces.

    Personally I don’t go shopping as much, I find as a woman people making comments about not masking. No one bothers my unmasked husband though.

    Apparently the Warehouse even has messages going out over the loud speaker – well they get a massive hard pass from me, I will take my money elsewhere to someone more welcoming thank you. Go woke go broke.

    Masking should be an individual choice. The vaccines were supposed to save everyone and they didn’t so if people are scared THEY can stay home and the rest of us will get on with it.

  13. From Eric Coppolino’s “Chronology of Covid-19”. Fauci’s team of Industrial Psychologists knew that to get buy in, they had to appeal to peoples narcissism. People love to be noticed. That is why you see a prevalence of social media comments “I this and I that”, “Wear a mask”. “I am better than you because I wear a mask…”. Childish, I know but it appeals to a certain type of SJW, Wokester, or Virtue Signaller. The interesting thing was the psychologists knew the reaction to “flu” wouldn’t be enough to get people to take an injection. Peter Daszek said it all regarding having to create a “virus” to prompt people to have an injection. How many people know, or even remember the “virus” is in silico. Effectively a digital creation. The 114 different rt-PCR test kits that told you you had SCV2 (they invented their own primers). They couldn’t produce isolated “virus'” so sent the recipe via. Internet. I still have the original genetic sequence, that has since been modified to remove certain sequences that proved the in silico manufacture of SCV2.
    It is actually embarrassing to hear the Government exhibit this narcissism publicly. Examine page 1 of the Pfizer Adverse Effects Document. There are 7 (that I have researched) serious neuro-synaptic adverse effects (there are a lot more I have not delved into as yet). The brain functionality and memory damage is not reversible. It gets worse very quickly. Is that what we are witnessing? Maybe the lying is part of their reaction and they don’t even recognise it. It is Bidenesque, i.e. seems like dementia. Ask yourself when have you ever seen a Government act so blatantly belligerently to logic, reason, knowledge, and history. So oblivious to any and everthing around them, It is actually seriously dangerous.

  14. Jacinda is a meth smoking psychopath. New Zealand is gone. Zero Covid is an insane policy. There are now over 450 scholarly publications on the failure and harm of lockdowns. There are over 170 articles on the uselessness of masks, including n95. The vaxxines are failing in real time along multiple vectors. And New Zealanders just bob their heads in compliance when instead major pressure needs to be put on the opposition party, on the media and on tooth face.

  15. british pilgrim society and their loyalists are in control and driving this 100 year cull corruption pandemic
    there is no solution within their systems their courts do not accept evidence that harms their de population agenda
    all western and european leaders are blood related or aligned to king john 1st of the magna carta who was a direct decendent of the elongated skull civilisation all governments are controlled by this dark entity elections are an illusion and a distraction which mind sets the masses compliance though their media and pro pagan da

  16. While you may have a few valid arguments, much of this article barely makes any sense.
    You need to calm down and explain your point much more clearly. Thanks.

  17. A calm and very well explained article, thank you Guy, which will prove very uncomfortable reading for some. Marsden’s point, above, is a bearded view from beneath.

  18. strength of observed correlations between covid jab status and subsequent morbidity / mortality could be assessed according to criteria for establishing causal strength of an observed correlation, as described by Bradford Hill and Richard Doll in the 1960s in relation to tobacco and lung cancer.
