  1. Calm down folks ,Putins Russia has an economy smaller than that of the state of Texas, unless he’s thinking of nuking the entire world he’s really as dangerous as a poodle nipping ar the back leg of a red nosed pit bull.
    I’m not pro Putin but for people that know the MSM narrative is always sculpted to big government directions I’m very surprised those same folk would swallow the current orchestrated narrative hook ,line and sinker..
    This “War” has come along just as the people of the western world were realizing how totally useless their political leaders actually are, look at Biden he could turn around his terrible presidency with this Ukrainian conflict and a better teleprompter.

    • Well said RT
      I am unfamiliar with Russian politics, but I am wise to msm
      If they say Putin is the aggressor in Ukraine the truth will be something else.
      And I would trust Putin over Biden any day. How weird is that.

      • The Ukraine were being seduced to join NATO, which like the UN, WHO, WEF, and all the rest of the insiders clubs, is controlled by the puppeteers. NATO is a Brer Rabbit situation to Western Countries as is BitCoin to the Banksters.

        The former where western countries feign allegiance to powerful disarmament agreements, yet wage war whenever and wherever they like, especially if it involves countries with substantial oil on mineral wealth.

        And of course NATO leaders are big on climate change. And the latter where the shadow promoters of BitCoin tell you that banks wet their pants in fear of BitCoin all the while manipulating the market as they do with foreign exchange.

        So NATO, who is following the Globalist horseshit on climate change has also condemned Russia over it’s invasion of the Ukraine, which Putin said was a military exercise to flex it’s muscles, because of Western powers trying to gain a foothold into the Ukraine, and subjugate the Ukraine into NATO where they can be controlled by the Western Elite. The same Western Elite that unleashed the Covid + Vaccine + Digital passprts of tyranny on their people. Acts which Putin has not followed and which Putin publicly condemned as tyranny.

        An image popped up on my screen on some news feed of the Ukraine “invasion” by Russia, with a man with blood on his face and a bandage around his head. It has all the qualities of a staged photo that rivals the artist work of Stanley Motss (Dustin Hoffman) and Conrad Brean (Robert de Niro) in the film “Wag the Dog”. That film was about creating a fake war in the media to distract from focus form a presidential sexual abuse scandal.

        Looking forward (not) to an anti-Russia pro West soundtrack by a modern day Willie Nelson who fits the pro vaxxer, pro climate change, pro digital ID stereotype.

        Just waiting for some well known Hollywood actors to join in on the condemnation of Russia. Perhaps even a concert to raise funds for the Ukraine. It would be a cold day in hell before Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, and Kevin Sorbo would have been considered to play any part.

        But I could be wrong.

        • Yep, rightoverlabour & Dylan,

          I remember in 1962 how excited the USA got during the Cuban Missile Crisis (Kennedy era). Essentially, Russia wanted to install missiles on Cuba – pointed in the direction of the USA of course.

          Uncle Sam said “No way are we gonna allow Russian missiles so close to our border.”

          After a bit of “Russian Roulette” with the possibility of nuclear war lurking in the background, Khruschev eventually backed down and the plan was withdrawn by the Russians.

          Fast-forward 60 years and now the USA (via NATO) wants to have The Ukraine allow U.S. missiles etc to be deployed along the Russian border.

          And Russia sez “”No way are we gonna allow U.S. missiles so close to our border.”

          Squaring the circle?

  2. A good morning to you all my fellow deplorables, Purebloods, Unvaxxed and ‘Filth;; and welcome to another day in ardern-land; the socilist paradise where good is bad, lies are truth and dl is the most-caringist person on the planet (Ever)>

    It would seem that, as well as destroying our country, the Ardern family is exercising it’s ‘power’ elsewhere, as dl’s father is (like his daughter) acting as another little dictator in Tokaleau.

    I came across the link below this morning and post it here FWIW for your attention; the NZ MSM (bribed as it is), will, of course never cover it.

    I have no reason, at this stage, to doubt the accuracy of what is being said.

    Re: ‘We call on the NZ Government to do what is right’

    Shouldn’t it in fact read ‘We call on the NZ MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT to do what is right’, since they are the ones who signed a collective agreement to refuse to talk to the ‘protestors’ until such individuals packed up and left?

    By signing that Agreement these MP’s are totally complicit in what is going on. They could have fixed matters but chose not to.

    He has been sheltering ancient Mallards down his way.

    The freedom fighters have found him out.

    https://www.sunlive.co.nz/news/288082-discovery-extinct-duck-found-central-otago.html

    Researchers working together – from Canterbury Museum and three Australian universities – were excited at the impact of the discovery on understanding the region’s natural history.

    The small diving duck has been given the name Manuherikia primadividua, and appears to have lived between 16 and 19 million years ago.

    It was found in an ancient lakebed in St Bathans, Otago.

    “Despite significant global constraints, I’m pleased we have secured enough RATs to ensure that anyone who needs a test can get one throughout the Omicron outbreak.

    “We have orders in place for 180 million RATs over the next six months.”

      PCR tests are about as reliable as using your wife’s lumbago as a weather forecasting device. Eight or so months ago, CDC announced the PCR test unreliable, (so an immediate best before date of back then), and a don’t use after date of 31/12/2021.

      But here we are 8 months later and Jacinda is being nice by serving the public with 8 months old stinky cheese that smells like grandmas socks that haven’t been washed in years, and home to 325 maggots.

  8. Oh how I am enjoying seeing the growing vociferous protests everywhere Ardern goes these days. Especially when she has to slink to her Government Mercedes with darkened windows and Diplomatic Protection Police running beside the vehicle a place where she thinks she can safely hide. it can only grow, this which she has bought on herself.

    It brings much pleasure to this older New Zealander and almost a tear to the eye.

    • No matter who the PM is, there is always a proportion of the population who hate their guts. I’m old enough to remember some of the vitriol flung at Piggy, for example. But I’ve never seen this. Toothy must be the most despised person in the country by a long way, even if the remaining proportion who imagine the sun shining out of her blerta are enough to propel her to the top of the preferred PM polls. It seems there’s no middle ground.

    Definitions of who should isolate have also now changed.
    Contact tracing is useless and pretty much abandoned.

    So whats the point in signing in? Masks? Vax passes? If a covid case can now enter a store etc and not force mass isolations of staff and other shoppers then whats the fucking point!

    End the stupidity you horrid woman, no one likes you as youve found out first hand the last few days its not just a few folk you dismiss in wellington that are pissed at you but infact its an entire country thats fucked off and hate you.

    Keep it up folk hound her every chance there is, yell and scream the abuse she deserves, egg her throw shit at her i dont care what but she deserves evey last bit of it.

    That evil woman will now struggle to be in public in nz the rest of her life we wont forget. No wonder she will flee to UN so lets hope jethro has thrown a spanner in the works and ruined that idea for her.

    • OS, I was in Russia and the Ukraine in particular every 6 weeks for 10 years as I was chartering ships & loading Potash out of Kherson, Mariupol, Ilyichevsk and Odessa in 10-12,000 ton cargoes every week. This was before, during and after Perestroika. I spent much time around the Dnieper River. Between what is now the Russian border and the Dnieper is deep Russian country with Russian as the mother language. Most people there identify as Russians and not Ukrainian.

      I would be surprised if Putin goes past the Dnieper and further into the Ukraine. This will then give the Russians access to water from the Dnieper for the Crimea, which the Ukrainians had previously cut off. It will also bolster Putin’s standing within Russia further. But the actual reasons for Putin’s move, you will never read in the MSM.

  21. indy is going to be really pissed and so is her cousisns.

    Police and Defence Force personnel have won a case against the Covid-19 vaccination mandate on religious grounds and the right to refuse medical treatment.

    It is the first time a High Court judge has granted an application to set aside the vaccine mandate – and he has made it clear it’s for police and defence force personnel only.

    The mandate required all Defence Force personnel and all police constables, recruits and authorised officers to receive two doses of the vaccine by 1 March 2022.

    The group of police and defence force personnel had asked Justice Francis Cooke​ to judicially review the mandate, have it declared invalid and set aside.

    Health Minister expects ‘significant number’ of Covid cases linked to protest
    A large cluster of Covid-19 cases at the anti-mandate occupation is likely, given the close quarters protesters are in and the lack of masks, Health Minister Andrew Little says.

    The protest, now on day 18, was named a location of interest on Thursday.

    “We just have to expect there is going to be quite a significant number there,” Little said.

    “I expect there will be a lot of people there who do get symptoms but won’t get tested because they don’t want to concede to the existence of Covid, but there will be some, particularly some of the older folks there who could get quite unwell.”

    Big jail terms for country’s largest ever cocaine haul
    Benn Bathgate19:28, Feb 04 2020
    Four members of an international drugs syndicate that attempted to smuggle $20m worth of cocaine into New Zealand have been sentenced to prison terms ranging from 27 to 14 years.

    ​The men, a Serbian, a Croat and two Australians, were sentenced at the High Court in Rotorua on Tuesday for the audacious plot that involved submersible scooters, gym bags stuffed with cash and the use of container ships as unwitting drug mules.

    It remains the biggest seizure of cocaine in New Zealand history and, it was revealed in court, was the syndicate’s third importation into the country.

  24. I would think so. Cindy now in a very awkward position. Let the high court ruling stand and come under ever more pressure to rescind mandates for everyone else (and further court applications) or try and change the law retrospectively again which will only wake up more people and enrage the protestors.

  25. She could appeal to the Supreme Court but if she cares about the polls and her support (equivalent to asking if the pope is a catholic)
    she will make the following announcement.

    Press Release:
    This government has always been a believer in the importance of the rule of law. Whilst we instituted mandates because we were truly trying to keep people safe it would seem that the high court thinks we have over stepped our level of authority. Whilst the government firmly deny that this is the case we have decided that the only practical course of action, given that Omicron is milder than previous variants of Covid 19, that from midnight tonight all mandates will be rescinded and vaccine passports will no longer be required by any business. (Or words to that effect)

    Is she politically astute enough to do this or will Uncle Klaus forbid it?

  28. Trudeau and Freeland obviously shot themselves in the foot. The media seemed to stress the approaching Senate vote as the reason he backed down so quickly ( I would have any competent politician would have “done the numbers” for the Senate before making such a drastic move). But there was also a massive run on the banks, so what was the real reason? Possibly both had an effect but I would bet the bank issue was the biggest reason.

    “Nearly everyone who took their house to market in Christchurch in last three months of 2021 made a profit, according to CoreLogic’s latest Pain and Gain Report.
    New Zealand’s second biggest city saw a median resale gain of $328,250 for the quarter.
    That’s lower than other main centres but still huge, especially for one of the country’s most affordable cities where price growth had been flat for much of last decade, and the median resale profit was $160,000 at the end of 2020.”

        Here is luxon’s self-justifying spiel; and a copy and paste of a few of the responses. One does get the impression that almost no-one likes the guy, but such is his self-centred arrogance that he won’t respond and all these replies will merely confirm HIS superiority over the ‘Common Herd’. He is NOT a nice individual at the best of times, so these responses will make him insufferable.

        The High Court’s decision that vaccine mandates for police officers and defence force personnel are unlawful and not justified must be a wake-up call for the Government over every other vaccine mandate given Omicron is in the community.
        With the vaccine mandates ruled unlawful, all of these police officers and defence force personnel should be back on the beat and serving Kiwis again.
        The judgment has implications for vaccine mandates more generally.
        Omicron has changed the game. Vaccine mandates made sense against Delta, because the vaccine was very effective at preventing infection and transmission. They make much less sense against Omicron.
        National’s view is that mandates should be progressively phased out as soon as possible once we are through the peak of Omicron.
        Kiwis have done the right thing – getting vaccinated in record numbers and getting boosted. Now they’re looking for a pathway back to normality.

        Not lawful is not lawful, you and the rest of the”Labour Lite” party have been openly supporting these unlawful and unnecessary mandates. Those of us that lost jobs or felt forced by mandates to get the vaccine have long memories.

  34. Latest tactic against the protesters

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2022/02/police-plead-with-anti-mandate-protesters-to-take-kids-home-as-oranga-tamariki-get-involved.html
    There are “serious concerns” for the dozens of children who remain at the anti-mandate protest outside Parliament, with police urging demonstrators to take them home with them.

    Police say they are working with Oranga Tamariki to “ensure children are at the forefront of planning and response decisions”.

    “We estimate around 30 children are currently present at the protest at Parliament grounds,” a statement read.

    “Police are also aware of a number of protesters planning to travel to Wellington to join the protest over the weekend. We urge people to stay away from an occupation site that is no longer a safe environment for families and children.”

  35. Not long ago a merchant found a lot of monkeys that lived near a certain Village. One day he came to the Village saying he wanted to buy these monkeys !He announced that he would buy the monkeys at $100 each.The Villagers thought that this man must be crazy – How can somebody buy Stray Monkeys at $100 each ?Still some People caught some monkeys and gave it to this merchant and he gave $100 for each monkey.This News spread like wildfire and People caught monkeys and sold them to the merchant.After a few days, the merchant announced that he will buy monkeys at $200 each.The lazy villagers also ran around to catch the remaining monkeys!They sold the remaining monkeys at $200 each.The merchant then announced that he will buy monkeys for $500 each!The villagers start to lose sleep!…..They caught six or seven monkeys, which was all that was left and got $500 each.The Villagers were waiting anxiously for the next announcement.Then the merchant announced that he is going on Holiday for a week, but when he returns, he will buy monkeys at $1000 each!He also said that his employee will be in charge, and would take care of the monkeys he bought pending his return.The Merchant went on holiday!The Villagers were frantic and very sad as there were no more monkeys left for them to sell it at $1000 each as was promised by the Merchant.Then the Merchant’s Employee contacted them and told them that he would secretly sell them some monkeys at $700 each.The news spread like wildfire. As the Merchant promised on his return that he would buy monkeys at $1000 each, they would achieve a $300 profit for each monkey.The next day The Villagers queued up near the Monkey Cage.The Employee sold all the monkeys at $700 each. The Rich bought monkeys in large lots. The poor borrowed money from money lenders and bought the rest of the monkeys!The Villagers took care of their monkeys & waited for the Merchant to return!However nobody came ! ….. Then they ran to Find the Employee ….However he was not to be found!The Villagers then realized that they have been duped buying the useless Stray monkeys at $700each, and were now unable to sell them!
    This Monkey Business is now known as Bitcoin !
    It will make a-lot of People bankrupt and a very few People filthy rich in this kind of Monkey Business.

  36. Azov fighters are Ukraine’s greatest weapon and may be its greatest threat

    “I have nothing against Russian nationalists, or a great Russia,” said Dmitry, as we sped through the dark Mariupol night in a pickup truck, a machine gunner positioned in the back. “But Putin’s not even a Russian. Putin’s a Jew.”

    The Azov causes particular concern due to the far right, even neo-Nazi, leanings of many of its members.

    Dmitry claimed not to be a Nazi, but waxed lyrical about Adolf Hitler as a military leader, and believes the Holocaust never happened.

    It’s day 18 of the “freedom protest” and police dealing with the fallout have met with a range of people from those with genuine concerns, the disaffected, and some who clearly need proper psychiatric help.

    On Thursday, police continued to reinforce the perimeter of the occupation at Parliament with concrete bollards in an operation involving 170 staff. They were met, as they have been throughout the protest, by lines of occupiers.

    First, there’s self-interest. The probability of a change of Government next year now exceeds 50 per cent.

    Detective Senior Sergeant Ryan Yardley was set to lose his job on March 1 as a result of the police and New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) vaccine mandates. But on Friday the High Court ruled the mandate to be unlawful.

    Yardley told 1News the result is fantastic.

    “I think it justifies exactly what we’ve been saying all along, these mandates were well out of proportions with what they’ve been trying to achieve”.

    He said there were a few tears when receiving the news.

    “This affects hundreds of officers, police officers and defence force workers as well, so it’s a huge proportion of people.”

    • I saw something somewhere else, which was very biting and recent, but have not been able to track back to it.
      The 2nd link below raises many good points to be opposed the WHO,
      .
      …. The international body formed to negotiate the treaty will hold its first meeting before 1 March 2022 to agree timelines and its second by 1 August 2022 to discuss progress on a working draft. It will simultaneously hold public hearings to inform its decisions, deliver a progress report to the 76th World Health Assembly in 2023, and submit an agreement for consideration by the 77th World Health Assembly in 2024. …..
      https://www.bmj.com/content/375/bmj.n2991
      .
      There are other links, with in that link, but nothing of 2022 so far.
      .
      It sort of reeks of back room deals to follow an agenda, as per Bill Gates, who funds WHO, and then there will be too much WEF by their trained “Global Enhancers” & “Young Global Leaders” and other mindless NGO’s etc..
      .
      Here is an article that values experience, knows some real history and how this WHO proposal agreement will make good health become even more endangered. :-
      .
      None of these problems can be dismissed as global health frippery. COVID-19 has been so devastating for global health governance that—to borrow from Winston Churchill—we had to watch the “rubble bounce.”
      However, this expansive health diagnosis lacks focus, clarity, and coherence on what issues countries should prioritize in a treaty and why.
      Loading so much into the health “cart” risks allowing politics more room to determine priorities at the expense of science and epidemiology. …
      .
      …. Many who favor a treaty believe it offers the best way to increase political commitment from states to reform global health governance.
      .
      But COVID-19 demonstrates that this proposition has no clothes.
      Government responses to COVID-19 have purportedly violated or manipulated many treaties, including the WHO Constitution, International Health Regulations (IHR), and human rights agreements.
      Claims that noncompliance with the IHR—the treaty most relevant to disease outbreaks—requires a pandemic treaty do not explain why a new treaty will generate the commitment that the IHR apparently did not.
      Treaties on biodiversity and climate change have also produced such poor commitments that health is now endangered on a planetary scale. ….

      https://www.thinkglobalhealth.org/article/case-against-pandemic-treaty
      .
      Worth the read to counter what will be coming down the track to New Zealand.
      .
      This government ditched its own “Pandemic Plans” updated in 2017 so those politicians will look to secede even more sovereignty to the WEF —- UN charlatans.
