  1. Neither a virus, nor the war in Ukraine, has caused inflation, as leftist media and politicians claim.

    The lockdowns and restrictions were imposed by politicians. The issue with Ukraine is the sanctions imposed by fanatical left wing politicians. Russia is happy to trade with the West.

    Call out anyone who repeats this propaganda lie.

    • I’m hearing a new headline this morning:
      Brace yourself for an inflation figure starting with a 7 announced later this morning.

      Having made weekly trips to the supermarket why will I find the announcement more shocking than the reality?

    • Kea; using the wrong privileged colonist calculator.
      This must be considered with being “kind” for “well-being” with more than superficial “karakia” as it is simply that more koha is needed.
      Please do not use “a kara-kea-less”.

      A special scientific calculator that seems to be in popular use in Aotearoa, that incorporates all of that other global knowledge, with the local Tāne Mahuta Bank that graciously allowing the sun to shine in on the economy. Tāne Mahuta’s roots the valuable people, some more equally, into a greater wisdom after much “powhiri”.

    • “Not only did the Omicron wave hit us in [quarter one]; the tragic Russian invasion of Ukraine has created turmoil in global commodity markets. Oil prices have surged, and global food price inflation is rising aggressively.”

      Anyone that makes that statement failed both economics and history in school.

      [1] Deflation is the natural order of things, as more and more value is created through production and innovation. i.e. the creation of more goods and services chasing a set number of dollars.

      [2] Inflation is caused by expanding the number of dollars by artificial creation of credit i.e. printing physical dollars or creating virtual dollars. OR by destruction of value, wealth, and restriction of the creation of goods and services. Various countries stand as examples, but Germany after the 1st World War stands on its own as a prime example.

      That article is a testament to the stupidity and lack of thinking of the writer and contributors, and is archetypal of what is wrong with this world.

      I was lucky to have a good economics teacher. However, you can lead a horsehead to water but not make it think. One of my economics classmates became a raging socialist.

  2. He nailed it:

    “ Labour added 13,845 full-time equivalent workers at an average salary of $87,600 over that period. That’s an extra $1.21 billion in wages alone.

    “These workers don’t include teachers, police officers, nurses, or any front-line workers. They’re administrators who make work for themselves competing with the private sector (e.g. Kainga Ora) or dream up new bureaucracy to make life harder for workers (e.g. Ministry of Education).”

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2022/04/act-says-it-would-return-bureaucrats-to-2017-levels.html

    The front line are over worked, badly paid, subject to constant restructures and stupidity they don’t agree with. The over paid bureaucrats are the issue. To an extent that has to be experienced to believed!

    • Odakyu-sen, Move overseas Odakyu-sen, like all of our Country’s talented people are going to do,there is no reason on an economic basis to stay in this socialist shithole (our system not our Country).
      Oh well at least Ardern will be at the airport so often from now on she can wave them all goodbye as they leave, the creature has 2 1/2 years of tripping the light fantastic to catch up on and her adoring international audience can’t wait any longer.

    • OS, Non cash assets, but this is where our feathered friend would point out a large chunk of those seeking better returns on their money piled it into housing forcing up prices, inflating the economy and in general made the problem worse. Some will still make lots of money, some a little and some will end up far worse off then had they just left it in the bank.

  3. For those not buying the daily dished up BS about what’s happening in Ukraine, here are more interesting truth bombs….

    -But it goes deeper than that. There are now questions about the fact that the massive arming campaign for Ukraine is depleting the stocks of all participating NATO countries.
    -Funny how the logic here is reversed. We were told it was Russia that didn’t plan for a war like this, and it was Russia that would run out of ammo and supplies. But now they’re admitting that it was in fact the U.S. themselves who miscalculated and are running out…whoops! …
    -And this bombshell: “American stockpiles of key weapons are smaller than one might imagine, partly because of production constraints and partly because most of the Pentagon’s roughly $750 billion budget goes to manpower, health care and things other than bullets and bombs.”

    Another very good read…..https://meaninginhistory.substack.com/p/what-ukraine-resupply-issues-tell?s=r

        “As at June 2021, they admitted to have spent $15 million in the past five years to treat 1,892 transgender troops, including $11.5 million for psychotherapy and $3.1 million for surgeries, according to Defense Department data provided to Military.com”

        “For more than two decades the Pentagon has been unable to complete a financial audit. In recent years we learned it cannot provide adequate documentation for $6.5 trillion worth of year-end adjustments and it has failed to pursue reforms that could save billions. Waste and inefficiency runs rampant in the Department of Defense. ”

        They have the military behemoth gobbling up obscene amounts of unaccounted for taxpayer money like we have the Maori behemoth doing the same here.

    • I can’t believe she said that.

      Had she said “how exciting it is for you for me to be arriving in Auckland” I could have forgiven her.

      Note: When I visited the Tokyo tourist trap of the Asakusa Shrine (for a laugh) back in 2018, there were so many Chinese that I had flashbacks of Dominion Road and the University of Auckland city campus. I felt horribly homesick for the Queen City.

  4. The supposed “independent” but well financed from Prime Minister & Cabinet offices, starts the stir to bring back vaxx data passports, a form of mandates.

    …. University of Auckland epidemiologist Rod Jackson thought the booster rollout was pretty much done for now.

    “So I think it’s going to take another wave, a new variant, or vaccine passes, to get people to get boosted, ” Dr Jackson said.

    He said the government may consider bringing back vaccine passes, but increasing the requirement to having had three doses to be considered vaccinated. This would help increase the booster uptake, he said.

    “If we see our hospital system being threatened – and that’s going to be threatened in a normal winter… that may be enough to get the government to decide to make the third dose part of being fully vaccinated and reintroduce [vaccine] passes.”

    A UK study shows the Pfizer vaccine protects against hospitalisation by 90 percent two weeks after the dose, which falls to 75 percent after three months.

    But that protection – and the protection offered from an actual Covid infection – wanes quickly with Omicron.

    Rod Jackson said ahead of a winter wave of Covid, it was a “no brainer” for a fourth vaccine dose – a second booster – to be approved for certain older or immunocompromised people, which he said had been shown to be effective in Israel.

    All of Parliament backs this, and this is just “❥ more ‘fear’ ‘❥ social conditioning’ ‘❥manipulating data’ ‘❥ softening up’ ‘”. 🙁
    Like masks, if you can smell a fart through it…it ain’t stopping shit.

    If the “vaccine” does what they claim it does, why do we need masks;
    If masks work why do we need vaccines;
    If either of them worked why hide the ivermectin?
    If they claim, “❥ Trust the Science” … yeah right ….

    ❥ Coercion is not science.
    ❥ Withholding data is not science.
    ❥ Manipulating data is not science.
    ❥ Cherry-picking studies is not science.
    ❥ Social conditioning is not science.
    ❥ Fear-mongering is not science.
    ❥ Pharma propaganda is not science.

  5. Here’s an interesting item:

    So, the clever solution was to abolish containment altogether, wish “illness and death” on the unvaccinated, and hope the vaccinated world gains “herd immunity” while enjoying relatively low mortality.

    Unfortunately for them, things did not work out this way. Hospitals are overwhelmed by the vaccinated. Endless Covid short term reinfections, plaguing the UK and the rest of the Western world, are sliding towards “Chronic Covid”. Herd immunity is enjoyed only by unvaccinated countries.

  6. With the winter flu season upon us the government should make the flu vaccine available to everyone for free, not just to the oldies. The same justification as the Covid19 vaccines being free, to keep hospitalizations down, Since the flu vaccine actually works it would be more effective at keeping people out of hospital.

    • ……”Since the flu vaccine actually works”…..

      Your faith is touching. Once again it is trumpeted as a miracle of modern medicine but:

      …..”Based on data from 4112 children and adults, vaccine effectiveness was estimated to be 37% against influenza A and 50% against influenza B viruses.”…….

      https://www.contagionlive.com/view/how-effective-is-the-201920-flu-shot (quoted for no particular reason other than it came up first on a web search)

      In any case the few people it did protect probably had one foot on a banana skin & the other foot in the grave.

      • And it is likely that those effectiveness figures are massaged. The best you can say about the flu vax is that the side effects are not as bad as the c19 vax. (at present, may change if they introduce an mrna version)

          Sorry I have in the past, but my trust in the medical profession is somewhat diminished and I will not get any vaccine!

    • BertP…with these flu vaccines, it has been my understanding that MOH studies the overseas data to predict/guess what strain of the flu is likely to hit us in our winter. With an absence of the flu for the past two years, here and overseas, how good is that guess work going to be that we get the right vaccine?

      • Me too HP. I’ve had the flu shot for most of the last 8 years. Since I was forced to get a covid “vaccine” to keep working, which I knew I didn’t need, like fuck will I be getting a flu shot this year.
        My employer can fucking subtract my sick leave balance instead if I get the flu. As a person who has been able to accumulate a sizeable sick leave credit balance, my employer should have recognised my ability to manage my health better than they could, but no. Stupid fucking idiots made them panic and not think at all.

  7. Karen goes to the doctor not feeling well. Karen: Doctor, I’ve not been feeling well lately.
    Doctor: I’ve looked at your lab reports and I’m afraid I have some bad news.
    Karen: Don’t give me this lab nonsense. I believe in homeopathic medicine, faith-based approaches and healing crystals. All my life, they have never failed me. Now will you do things my way or do I need to see the manager?!?
    Doctor: Sure, we’ll do things your way. No need to raise your temper. Why don’t we try an astrology based approach?
    Karen: At last a sensible approach.
    Doctor: So, what’s your star sign?
    Karen: it’s cancer.

  8. Visited two lots of friends yesterday. All are fully vaxed up to the booster.
    One had just returned from hospital after having a mysterious cancerous growth removed from behind his bottom teeth. Surgeon said he had never seen anything like it before.
    The others wife was recovering from heart issues and pneumonia. Never had heart issues before.
    Me being me, asked them if they had the jab, and then proceeded to tell them it was most likely the cause of their health issues.
    Both denied it was anything to do with the jab.
    But they all cannot stand Cindy and Liarbour.

  10. Vehicle hire could be a struggle in NZ as tourists’ return looms
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2022/04/20/vehicle-hire-could-be-a-struggle-in-nz-as-tourists-return-looms/

    Rental car companies are having problems rebuilding fleets after culling more than half of their cars over two years and with manufacturer supply issues offshore.

    The issue could have a negative impact on our hard-to-reach tourist spots.

    Tony Mortensen from the Rental Vehicle Association said “the industry was forced to sell down once the borders closed”.

    He said the industry estimates around 55% to 60% of New Zealand’s fleet were sold.

    A leading New Zealand economist is warning Kiwis that inflation caused by Government spending will come through in the “next year or so”.

    This warning comes after the previous Consumer Price Index (CPI) figures released in January showed annual price inflation between the December 2020 and December 2021 quarter had hit 5.9 percent – the biggest annual jump in three decades.

    Robertson will deliver the 2022 Budget on May 19, where he will unveil $6 billion of Government spending.

  12. RMA and regulations making it impossible for vege growers

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/money/2022/04/inflation-cost-of-vegetables-set-to-rise-growers-say.html
    Jay Clarke, the director of Woodhaven Gardens which grows 24 different crops, told AM they’re facing unprecedented cost pressures just to keep the business alive.

    “Some of that’s driven from international factors; the price of fertiliser has gone up over 300 percent, the cost of fuel has gone up a couple of hundred percent,” he said. “Then there are things like seed, freight that we have to acquire to get our products to market that are up 30 or 40 percent. Cost pressure across the board is out of control.

    “Then, there are also some internally driven things that come from Government policy as well. We’ve seen labour costs rise by about 60 percent over the last three years and that’s driven by minimum wage increases and constraints on our labour market, with Government implemented COVID policies and immigration settings.”

    “The prices that we receive are really set by the retailers,” he said. “I’m hoeing up iceberg lettuce by the hectare every day at the moment because the price the retailers are willing to pay for it is so far below our cost of production that we can’t justify sending it to market and that’s a tragedy – it’s wasted food.”

    Clarke said the cost increases had been brewing for about the past five years.

    “As cost pressures mount, and the difficulties of doing business increase for vegetable growers, it was going to lead to higher price points for the consumer and now it’s playing out.”

      Relentless wind up propaganda, to push the more controlling “mandatory vaxx data passport”

      …… there have not been widespread mandates for boosters , as there was to be double vaccinated for some people’s jobs or to get a vaccine pass. ….

      and continues the “Trust the Scientism” of ‘social conditioning’ to create fear reasoning for “mandatory data vaxx passes” as mentioned above.

    • Would that be lining up to pressure people into a form of “mandatory vaxx passport;- data IRD number validation, tied in with your digital banking” with the laws of “Anti-Money Laundering and Countering Financing of Terrorism Act” which tracks all your assets, and how they are acquired.

      Many people be afraid of losing a lot if the banks go down, and the downstream effects.
      Then there are house holder power supplies, all smart connected that send messages via cell phones.
      Control centres, over essentials, like hospitals, transport, fuel, supply lines of food, etc., that are all computerized one way of the other.

      Or is it all another scare tactic, to gain further controls, where with some practicable steps, like Y2K was, 20 years ago. It was overstated, and there was only a small part to be mitigated.

    Almost drank a Tui every on every copy paste, except my gastric response was going to a regurgitate state 🙁

    So the concept of the 6.9% inflation rate, and so below the OECD average is just one small chicken coming home to roost.
    The rest of the heavy hitters not far behind now;—- More supply chain issues, Oil Fuel prices, Fertilizer prices, Transport costs, etc..that will keep on ratcheting up, showing up New Zealand’s real lack of productivity.

    Western Europe will collapse by December

    It will be the famine that causes it not a food shortage in Western Europe but a food shortage in Africa
    Which will cause an unprecedented crisis in Western Europe
    Somalia, Sudan, Egypt, Benin, Rwanda etc. they all get more than 80% of their grain from Ukraine + Russia
    Those shipments are not leaving the black sea Putin is saving his grain for his own nation in preparation for the chaos

    Hundreds of millions of n…s and sand n…s will pour into western Europe as famine refugees PER MONTH
    Hundreds of millions more will die in first 3 – 5 weeks
    Billions will be dead by 2024 It will make the Great Chinese Famine look like a good time
    The 500+ million refugees in Western Europe will be further stressed by a lack of fuel in many western European countries that are totally reliant on the US and Russia for gas
    The US will abandon their western allies as a lost cause and will focus on energy needs at home

  18. Hundredth monkey effect

    The hundredth monkey effect is a hypothetical phenomenon in which a new behavior or idea is spread rapidly by unexplained means from one group to all related groups once a critical number of members of one group exhibit the new behavior or acknowledge the new idea. The behavior was said to propagate even to groups that are physically separated and have no apparent means of communicating with each other.

    Between 1952 and 1953, primatologists conducted a behavioral study of a troop of Macaca fuscata (Japanese monkeys) on the island of Kōjima. The researchers would supply these troops with such foods as sweet potatoes and wheat in open areas, often on beaches. An unanticipated byproduct of the study was that the scientists witnessed several innovative evolutionary behavioral changes by the troop, two of which were orchestrated by one young female, and the others by her sibling or contemporaries. The account of only one of these behavioral changes spread into a phenomenon (i.e., the ‘hundredth monkey effect’), which Watson would then loosely publish as a story.

    According to Watson, the scientists observed that some of the monkeys learned to wash sweet potatoes, initially through an 18-month-old female member (named “Imo” by the researchers) of the troop in 1953. Imo discovered that sand and grit could be removed from the potatoes by washing them in a stream or in the ocean. Gradually, this new potato-washing habit spread through the troop—in the usual fashion, through observation and repetition. (Unlike most food customs, this behavior was learned by the older generation of monkeys from younger ones.)

    This behavior spread up until 1958, according to Watson, when a sort of group consciousness had suddenly developed among the monkeys, as a result of one last monkey learning potato washing by conventional means (rather than the one-monkey-at-a-time method prior). Watson concluded that the researchers observed that, once a critical number of monkeys was reached—i.e., the hundredth monkey—this previously learned behavior instantly spread across the water to monkeys on nearby islands.

  20. It still seems the intention is to on the sly, a version of mandates, for vaxxes. and punish the unvaxxed.
    The government keeps those control tools honed.

    Probably too much trust in government, but the this government does not care and entraps people anyway, by their devious changes and fine print.
    .
    ….. public health physician Professor Michael Baker believes increasing the number of unvaccinated people in the community would increase risk generally.
    .
    “In principle every extra person we add to New Zealand’s who’s unvaccinated increases the risk of transmission of Covid 19 and any other disease they’re not vaccinated for,” he said.
    .
    “In addition they run the risk they’re more likely to wind up in hospital seriously ill and potentially occupying a bed that’s needed for other patients.” ….
    .
    The Covid-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins told 1News he was yet to read the letter from The Forgotten group and wouldn’t comment on potential legal action.
    But he noted that border policies were under “constant review”.
    .
    “The public health profile of course changes based on the increased number of cases that we’re seeing in the community and so on, so I think it is likely we’ll see change there in the future,” he said.
    .
    The Government had not decided to make further changes at this point, he added – but changes could be “weeks or months away”.
    .
    “Overall we’re moving to a point where Covid-19 will be managed around the world and that’s going to mean international travel’s going to be much freer than it has in the last two years.”
    .
    The debate continuing; unvaccinated permanent residents and residents left waiting to see if the Government will change its approach. ….

    .
    More devious ways of pushing the “Emergency Use Approval” vaxxs on the kids where MedSafeNZ do not even fully check out the Pfizer documents.
    .
    ….. Ministry of Health changing the message from “wall of defence” to “individual armour” we’ve lost the most crucial thing about vaccines – it actually is not about you. It has never been about you.

    Your vaccination, and that of your child is for everybody.
    And everybody else’s vaccination is for you. It is exactly a “wall of defence.”

    This means that you might still become unwell with the BA.2 variant even if you are vaccinated, but that doesn’t matter.
    And the vaccine probably won’t stop your child getting Covid.
    But that doesn’t matter.
    .
    If every kid and every adult was vaccinated then there would just be fewer opportunities for any of us to catch it, and that is how we beat it in the long term. ……

  21. I wonder what triiggered it?

    My husband used to feel pretty confident that if he got Covid-19, he was young, fit, double vaccinated, and strong enough to fight through it.

    Not even 40, barely a sick day in his life, and known to balance multiple macrocarpa beams on his shoulders up steep steps, then knock up a retaining wall in a matter of hours.

    But even he had his kryptonite.

    Omicron was just starting to peak when an overwhelming fatigue – a normal 15-minute lawn mowing task took about an hour – pushed him to the doctor to get a blood test in November.

    That night his GP stood in our living room with visible tears in his eyes telling us he has leukaemia, and to get to the hospital immediately.

    His haemoglobin level was so low that if it wasn’t for his fitness, he would have been unconscious.

    In shock and grappling with his mortality, we quickly realised that a pandemic is not a good time to have no immunity when the emergency department (ED) triage nurse swapped our cloth masks for hospital ones and rushed us out the back.

      Not a good time to pump poison into your body either, especially when it doesn’t provide immunity.

  22. apart from not the first, what a waste of money.
    11% of working age Kiwi’s are unemployed.
    World’s first war trenches re-opened in Rangiriri

    The bloodiest battle of the New Zealand land wars, at Rangiriri, will now be commemorated with the launch of the Rangiriri trenches, a tourism venture.

    Some 159 years ago, 1500 British soldiers invaded Waikato. Rangiriri became known as the bloodiest of all of the New Zealand land war battles. And, after this battle, 1.3 million hectares of land were confiscated.

    Today the Rangiriri trenches were opened to remember the past, preserve and share knowledge, and become a tourism venture.

    It took nine months to build, and cost $3 million funded by the government and iwi. It is hoped that this could create 50 jobs in the community.
    That’s 60k per job that might happen.

    • I hope the ranchers only go ahead for their meat-works, on a very sound financial basis, and are well capitalized, bearing in mind, cash is king.
      Nothing is worse than if they have to borrow or raise more money.
      Then they will have flexibility.

      Keep to the job at hand.
      Be able to finance, cover the product until sold, and to allow for any hitches. Never sit on stock for long.
      Be prepared and able to stop the plant, to re-balance, if necessary.
      Close down, until you get the right deals.

      Every trick in the book will be thrown at them to take them down.

  24. What Will It Take To Stop Ardern?
    Hunger Strikes, Court Cases, Protests and Polls.

    Never before in the history of New Zealand have Kiwis had to endure a government that barges ahead with such radical, divisive and above-the-law policies. Right from the start of governing on its own this Labour Government has thrown its weight around, actioning its Marxist agenda, applying draconian rules and administering policies that often ignore existing laws.

  25. so, a couple of days ago I posted about the lady who screwed her employers for 12 days blled leave and so on.
    I managed to find a wall posted for the HR dept. so they can train their managers what to look out for.
