    Egg prices skyrocket 52% in TWO MONTHS as bird flu decimates commercial flocks: As many as 11 million chickens and two million turkeys have died this year
    Shell egg prices are currently sitting at $2.88 a dozen on average – the highest since the beginning of the pandemic, according to the Wall

    Oh and Phizer have a jab for that.

    But then
    STUDY: Bird Flu (H5N1) – NO PROOF for existence, pathogenicity, or pandemic potential; non-‘‘H5N1’’ causation omitted

    Just going to leave this here. Hundreds of millions of poultry killed around the world, and there is NO EVIDENCE that this “bird flu” even exists. Not to reiterate the inventor of the PCR test said it isn’t a diagnostic tool.

    This is largely a fraud to take out the food supply and strip your right to feed your family with backyard birds.

    • “….and there is NO EVIDENCE that this “bird flu” even exists.”

      In which case you would expect that the poultry farmers would have enough money between them to hire lawyers to get an injunction and pay researchers to determine whether or not the “bird flu” exists.

      Farmers are businessmen and have the resources to organize themselves and protect their livelihoods.

    President Trump on the Lou Dobbs podcast today:

    “These are very dangerous people. We actually have a greater danger in many respects, from within than we do outside – and we have some bad ones outside. But in many ways, we have a greater danger from within. The people from within that are destroying our country.”

  4. Cellphones tracking gets them.

    True The Vote says the cell phone GPS tracking data they used to find and trace the movements of the mules being paid to stuff ballot boxes in Georgia proves the mules were working out of TWO Democrat officials offices – and one of these offices being used for these ballot box stuffing runs was that of STACY ABRAMS.

    • Defibrillator – an electronic device that administers an electric shock of preset voltage to the heart through the chest wall in an attempt to restore the normal rhythm of the heart during ventricular fibrillation.

      A defibrillator is no use in instances of cardiac arrest; only when the heart is in fibrillation. The electric shock is to stop the fibrillation and restore the normal heart beat.

Totally jabbed and booster shots. Makes one wonder doesn’t it? Oh goodness silly me, possibly had the flue jab as well so that and the others might have been causing the incidence of heart issues.

    Guyana OKs Exxon’s $10B Yellowtail offshore oil project
    GEORGETOWN, Guyana (AP) — Guyana’s government has granted permission for U.S. supermajor ExxonMobil to develop a fourth offshore oil and gas field and the company said Monday it has made a final investment decision on the $10 billion project aimed at producing up to 250,000 barrels per day.

    Guyanese authorities announced approval of the Yellowtail Project on Sunday, adding to the company’s Liza One, Two and Payara fields.

    “Yellowtail’s development further demonstrates the successful partnership between ExxonMobil and Guyana and helps provide the world with another reliable source of energy to meet future demands and ensure a secure energy transition,” the company said in a statement. The new project is expected to come onstream by 2025.

    Newshub got a sneak peek of the first design – a fence as high as the cast-iron gates.
    The parliament has purchased temporary fencing in the meantime. It’s too expensive to keep hiring.

    • Exactly my thoughts when “the wall” was first announced… are they planning to anger and divide the people more/again that they have to go back and occupy?

      Obviously they havent learnt anything from the protest and will continue to be out of touch and dictators not representative. Only radical extreme left protests will be allowed to enter parliament grounds from now on, any common sense or right leaning protest causes will be denied.
      All the govt is doing is proving to the people that peaceful protest us futile and to just go in hot from the start cuz thats what the pigs will do next time round

  10. From the Herald
    “Why women have 20% less in KiwiSaver than men on average…”

    When I see a title like this, I know the author is a big fan of equality of outcome.

    There are only two ways to achieve this equality. Either you raise everyone up to the same level (which is really hard due to the Pareto Principle, or 80/20 Rule which maintains that 20% of the items in a company or system account for 80% of the effect) or you simple take a legislative hammer and smash down all the nails that stick up.

    After all, cutting down the Tall Poppies is the New Zealand way.

    • The logical answers to that title…
      Because women take years off work to breed.

      Women more often take on lower skilled lower paid work.

      Many women are emotional wrecks at work and not so productive so dont deserve to be paid the same as harder working employees (reeeeee goes the screaming lefty getting ref pilled)

      Women are more likely to spend years doing worthless degrees instead of working a more common sense job.

      Obviously the above dosent apply to all women but id safley bet that covers 80% of the female population.

  11. More from the Herald
    “NZ couple who owned snorkelling business found dead in Tonga were electrocuted, say police.”

    Since this was on a small island, the power must have come from a generator. How could two people get electrocuted like that? Did they both get electrocuted at the same time, or did one get shocked first and then the other (when they tried to rescue them)?

    What kind of scenario could have provided the stage for the deaths?

  12. If you feel like throwing up this morning I can highly recommend an article in the Herald about John Campbell leaving Breakfast T.V. I imagine it’s behind the paywall which is a good thing. The bad news is I’ve taken out the good bits and am writing them here for your perusal. It starts with “Perhaps the biggest name in N.Z media” then ” Has been the nations trusted friend ” The hasbeen bit sounds reasonably accurate. It then goes on to describe his brand as ” untarnished ” a bigger load of absolute bullshit is hard to imagine. I expect a hundred down ticks for this damage this causes.

  18. Workers ‘in shock’ as 150 jobs cut from Auckland printing plant+

    Around 150 workers at Auckland printing plant Ovato are reportedly “in shock” after being made redundant, with some having worked there for three decades.
    E tū negotiation specialist Joe Gallagher says the current situation is a “perfect example” of the flow-on effect of ruptured local supply chains.

    “When a key player in Ovato’s supply chain – the Kawerau paper mill – closed, this left the company reliant on imported paper.

    “Importing paper is not only expensive due to the huge increase in shipping costs, but there’s around a seven-month wait time to get paper from Europe.”

  20. I was in Rotorua a few days ago (the homeless were not apparent on Fentanyl Street, but I didn’t go looking).

    I watched some free-to-air TV for the first time in over a year. What struck me during the weather report was the announcer’s Maori accent, and the bilingual name-places. (Te Reo first; English second).
    The announcer also sprinkled his announcements with quite a few Te Reo terms that I am not familiar with and have never heard used by the general public (let alone Maori) in this country.

    The impression I got is that the State is promoting Maori Über Alles. What about the other 85% of the population who doesn’t self-identify with this special ethnic group?

    How is dividing the nation going to encourage us to work together?

    20

    • OS, your last question, “How is it dividing us going to encourage us to work together.”

      It ain’t.

      I work almost exclusively with Maori, mainly young Maori and I am finding them increasingly entitled and somewhat arrogant. I should also say, this is not the exclusive domain of Maori, some of the few young Europeans I work with are starting to show similar trends.

      As I race through my 70’s and a net Taxpayer paying secondary Tax, because few others wish to do my job, I am rapidly starting to wonder, do I need to put up with such entitlement and rudeness in my life? I think that I may soon be an unemployed old aged pensioner.

    • OS, governments don’t won’t you to work together. If you did, they would be out if a job.

      Government needs division to be relevant. And thats any political party. So government will always divide and grow and divide even more.

    • The attempt to create hybrid ‘pidgin’ or creole language that is neithrr English or Maori is stupid. They are inventing an entirely new language that will benefit nobody. In countries like Wales where there is strong support for retaining the native language, the locals haven’t created a new lanhuage. They use English for most communication and Welsh for formal or ceremonial situations.
      Here, it will not be long before ‘Manglish’ has to be learned by new migrants and new dictionaries are needed. One of the biggest problems for greater use of Maori is that it tends to require a sentnce or phrase to convey what a single english does.
      The worst aspect of the misguided moves being pushed by ‘intelectuals’ is the mixing of maori and english in both written and spoken communication. That can render the message unitelligible for over 80% of New Zealanders. It does nothing to preserve maori as a language because sprinkling words and phrases randomly imto a sentence does not make it a maori sentence.
      By all means lets encourage greater use of Maori, but as a complete language in the proper context, not as a bastardisation of english.

      • Lizziep, the soakage of this is in deep.

        That company corporate has a lot of money to soak away from all its share holders.

        It is sort of amusing as being a major export company it tries to understand how to culturally relate to gain access, and do business in selling its products.

        It is the so called back ground narrative of being culturally responsible, that it says is necessary for marketing its goods, the so called back ground story along with so called sustainable, enviro good.
        Yet that that can not be figured out or qualified.

        The bottom line really is good hygiene practices, ongoing monitoring with credible trace back.
        Then the it is supply demand to set the price.

  21. This is worth a rerad. I tells how the physiology of advertizing was developed and when and how it morhped into politics.

    “We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of,” Bernays wrote.

    Bernays envisioned a few superior “wise men” overseeing the direction of society for the good of the masses, but a different story unfolded in practice. Bernays’s techniques could be used by anyone with a sinister agenda looking to steer the public mind. This included Bernays himself at times. In the 1930s, he started marketing cigarettes as a way to soothe a sore throat and stay slim, despite being well aware of early evidence that smoking caused health problems. He did, however, discourage his own wife’s smoking habit.

    Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels borrowed heavily from Bernays’s work. President Franklin Roosevelt considered hiring Bernays to sell the American public on World War II, but Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter talked him out of it. In a letter to the president, Frankfurter described Bernays and his ilk as “professional poisoners of the public mind, exploiters of foolishness, fanaticism, and self-interest.”

    Today, selling and psychology still go hand in hand.

        With sad-looking perverts? How can you castigate sin, when you
        Yourself are the most notorious of all the Socratic sodomite holes?
        Though hairy members, and those stiff bristles all over your arms,
        Promise a rough approach, your arse turns out to be smooth enough
        When the smiling doctor lances away at your swollen piles.”

  23. “New Zealand Superannuation: Māori Party co-leader Rawiri Waititi suggests lowering eligibility age” (8 years, to 57).

    Where to begin?

    What if you are a healthy Caucasian with one great-great grandparent of verifiable Maori ancestry. That would make you 1/16th Maori. Would you qualify for Superannuation from age 57?

    What if you are 100% Samoan, with a BMI of over 25, and a family background of Type II diabetes, heart, and kidney trouble? Obviously you are in greater need than Mr. 1/16th Maori above, but will you have to wait until 65 to get Superannuation?

    Would it be fairer to give fat people / ill people the pension earlier, since they will likely die sooner?

    Think of the moral hazard!

    • You would have to define the meaning of:
      – to lie (Does the intent to deceive have to be proven? Good luck with that.)
      – to say something in good faith that turns out later to be untrue
      – to repeat what you have been told (by experts) which turns out later to be untrue
      – to say something that a reasonable person would be expected to check for factual accuracy before uttering it

    “The giant hole being left by Ashley Bloomfield at the top of the Ministry of Health is getting larger, with two top public health leaders also leaving this week.

    This follows the director general of health’s surprise resignation that was announced earlier today, with his last day at the end of July.

    The ministry is also having farewells this week for director of public health Dr Caroline McElnay, and public health deputy director Dr Niki Stefanogiannis.”

    Me – My GP has requested I see him so I need to make an appointment
    Her- There is nothing here to say he wanted to see you and we are only taking phone consultations
    Me – He did ask to see me but that’s ok, I don’t actually need to see him. I will order my prescriptions on-line

    We’re back to 2016 levels and climbing fast. How long before the rate hits 4.0%? How high could it go to? (If you set the graph timeline to “25 Y” you might get a better perspective.)

    Note: The FED will surely further raise its rates in the months ahead, and NZ is bound to follow. NZ banks will surely raise their lending rates.

  28. I get so angry on trips to town, i rarely go now but when i do its so depressing.

    Im not sure about you city folks interactions but in small town southland you know and recognise many people and pre covid a trip to the supermarket would usually result in a good yarn to one or several ppl you knew whilst making your way back to the car.
    With the exception of a wet day the carpark used to be a hive of activity with several groups yakking away, laughter and smiles etc… fast forward to 2022 and its like an apocolyptic wasteland with silent, depressed mindless zombies shuffling to and from their cars, heads down no eye contact and just completely brainwashed by our glorious leader and her decrees.

    I sat in the carpark awaiting wifeys return for about half an hour, only thing exciting to see was the increase in non mask wearing but i estimate that to be only 3-5% but late last year you would be lucky to see one other maskless person so i guess its an improvement.

  30. Women working on the Covid-19 response have received “terrible” online abuse, said Dr Ashley Bloomfield in a press conference on Wednesday afternoon.

    Asked about the “harder edge” of being a public figure in the pandemic, Bloomfield said the abuse he receives is nothing compared to his colleagues, who are women.

    His comments show that the Ministry of Health is also affected by pervasive online abuse of women in public roles.

      • When I phone the Auckland Council, the recording at the beginning advises me “not to abuse staff.” The implication is that there are a lot of nasty, abusive, angry people who phone the Council.

        At Greenlane Hospital, I read a sign in the main waiting area that advised readers that “Fighting in the waiting room will not be tolerated.” If fights are that common that signs have to be posted, then you must wonder. Would the people who brawl in the hospitals have the comprehension level to read or even understand such a sign?

        As Marcus Tullius Cicero, a Roman statesman, lawyer, scholar, and philosopher wrote over 2,000 years ago: “The wise are instructed by reason, average minds by experience, the stupid by necessity and the brute by instinct.”

        Very true over 2,000 years later. We have not really changed in a couple of millennia.

Very helpful instructions given to grandbrat, but once the count is set up on line, we need to visit the bank again with the necessary ID documents.

              I agree tho cash is king, since start of covid ive made a point in paying for as much stuff as possible in cash. Once ive been paid we just go withdraw a couple grand at a time and go from there.
              Ive saved shitloads of money going back to cash as its tangible we find it harder to spend and waste, handing over a couple hundred cash is far harder psychologically then say spending a grand online/swiping a card.
              Cash is great for budgeting and prevent impulse buying too as you can just take what you need to town.

    Our PM, Speaker, MPs, GG, Supreme Court & electoral commission are all paid enough to follow the constitution. The PM announcing a date for a by-election before a vacancy in parliament has even eventuated is equivalent to a universal death knell of any constitutional democracy and the beginnings of a banana republic. We have a constitution and it’s process for good reason. And it’s not so listless PMs and MPs can do as they please with the ‘unbridled power’ they think they might have. The constitution is there to protect all – not just the privileged.

  35. A bill that could enable an equal number of Māori ward and general ward seats in Rotorua if passed into law will encounter its first significant hurdle today – its first reading in Parliament.

    The Rotorua District Council (Representation Arrangements) Bill was drafted by the council to enable the model, which is currently unlawful under the Local Electoral Act.

    The Local Electoral Act has a formula that limits the number of Māori ward seats based on population sizes.

    The bill seeks an exemption for the Rotorua district from that rule.

    Rotorua-based Labour list MP Tāmati Coffey is the bill’s sponsor.

    Parliament’s order paper for today states allowance for two 10-minute speeches and nine five-minute speeches on the bill.

    Debate is expected to begin about 2pm and can be viewed on-demand on the Parliament website or on Parliament TV.

      It is going to be a battle to raise questions about the leaky, transmitting vaxx.

      To me it seems that setting up Covid mRNA vaxxes to follow the non liability status by making it a part “child-hood vaccines.
      Then being able to hitch onto the regularity of a flue vaccine, which in the States the children are regularly jabbed.
      https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/schedules/hcp/imz/child-adolescent.html

          If the market doesn’t break soon we are going to have to back them if we’re ever to be great grandparents. Do it for one & you have to do the same for all which will at a guesstimate cost us approx $800,000 less their tightarsed parents’ contributions.

          Blaming property investor is just lazy and without foundation.
          I have owned my houses for over 20 years. bought back then when people couldn’t sell their houses.
          Paid 10+ % at times and sometimes more on the credit card because during that time Labour drove 100,000 kiwi’s out of the country for a number of years and there were no tenants.
          Spent a lot of money upgrading the houses so that some have more heating then my own.

          So naaska although you have the idea its all beer and skittles and you get sucked in by what the newsmedia filter into your mind, actually nothing is what it seems.

            • People don’t build new until the cost of buying second hand rises to meet the new price. New now costs upwards of $3k per sq mtr. When there are more people than houses the cost of second hand rises.
              simple market forces.
              If you or anyone else can persuade the govt, to bring down the cost on new houses than second houses will drop. Oversupply will make a small difference but then inability to fund or the lack of desire negates that.
              When it comes to money, saving as always is the key. Todayys increase in the minimum rate ensures that anyone who works the 40 hour week that once was earns some $44000 per year. Two earn twice that or more. Add in some extra hours, second jobs or dare I say it a third job and 100k isn’t out of the way. Of course many earm a lot more than $21.20 per hour. Plenty in the $25 to 30 these days. So the ability to earn ain’t the barrier for the determined.
              But unless you live like a hermit for two years then you ain’t going to save and therefore you are not making the required effort.
              If you have been travelling, buying flash new cars,phones,clothes ,latte’s etc then you ain’t made an effort and therefore don’t deserve to be granted finance that you may not repay.
              Its often not what you earn but what you get to keep.

              When I stared at buying a house in1996 I had next to no money, (another story) but what I did know was that I didn’t like being poor and I didn’t think that the Govt. would keep me by the time I retired. That was motivation enough to shift me of my bum and get it done. I still don’t own a new car. Probably could if I wanted too but some of it would be financed and I ain’t going there when there are extremely good second hand ones around at a discount rate you get no where else.
              Years ago I realized that there was ALWAYS a new car salesman out there that had a new model that was bigger and brighter than last years which was now worth half of what you paid for it. Fools game.

              anyway I now have a passive income that will allow me to not have to worry when the rates bill arrives. Its a good feeling.

          So many laws, regulations, that will have the government throwing you out if things do not comply.
          Revolving around Health & Safety, Water regulations, Sewerage waste water,
          Civic Defence, Emergency Laws, Building Laws can deem that your house maybe a Health risk.

    • Oats to milk for the latte set.

      Seems like a marketing change, maybe in the wind, Oats to porridge…
      Could work thinking of Braybots nemesis link above.
      …. The Emerging Global Food Shortage ….

      If we have the infrastructure still around to “rolled oats”.
      Fuel energy for the increased horses needed to pull the systemic “green” carts that will fit in with the new & much lower road speed limits. 🙂

      • The oats are everywhere down here S1, most have just been harvested in the last couple of weeks. It hilarious at the hissy fits and fallouts amongst a few growers fighting for lucrative deals to supply the venture. All that will happen is the farmers will overspend and be stuck with a glut of oats no one else wants.

        Sadly our rolled oats/porridge mill (flemmings creamota) got converted to a stockfood plant a number of years ago, i used to love the smell biking past that factory to school each day 🙂 dad used to have to do repairs there occassionally and the manager dude would go scoop me and my brother hot freshly rolled oats straight from the chute, super tasty when its fresh like that.
