  1. Dont let your attacker get you down… make jokes while theyre getting owned!

    https://i.stuff.co.nz/entertainment/celebrities/300580491/comedian-dave-chappelle-attacked-on-stage-in-los-angeles

    “The comedian had literally just said he now has more security because of all the uproar from his jokes about the Trans community,” tweeted Buzzfeed News reporter Brianna Sacks, who attended the show.

    She tweeted that “while the attacker was getting beat up”, Chappelle “made a joke about him probably being a Trans man”.

    And then this lil gem…
    Chris Rock was there as well, and jokingly asked if the attacker was Will Smith.

    • Certialy won’t be christian charity and good will to all men (and women of course).

      Perhaps he will drive of the side of the Wainui hill.
      Perhaps climate change will return and Wellington will get windy like it used to be and he will get blown off the hill.

      (Seen that happen. in my youthful days.)

    • He will continue to dish out his dictatorial Shamocracy. He is a grubby gutter rat.
      It is impossible to be a Speaker of the house and show no bias, if your whole political career has been filled with vitriol and bias.
      I hope he continues, all he is achieving is dragging the rest of the despotes into the gutter with him.
      When you think he can’t get any worse, he just keeps on giving.

  2. Mike Hosking: Open and honest government? What a joke

    OPINION:

    “Among the many claims made by this government, surely the one that stands out now as the most dishonest is that they would be the most open honest and transparent government this country has seen.

    It stands out so much it’s now often used as a joke.

    When Mark Mitchell first raised his issues with Poto Williams and her denying access to Police district commanders and the Police Minister, I raised the issue with Megan Woods on my programme. Her very helpful advice was to ring the minister, which Mitchell did but they didn’t answer and never got back to him. We rang on his behalf at which point they told us he wasn’t getting access. After that Woods suggested it didn’t matter because that’s what select committees are for.

    Got an issue? Get these people in front of the committee.

    Well turns out this has been tried, and tried and tried, and what do you know, the Labour party has blocked the opposition from doing that very thing not just once in Mitchell’s case, but a number of times, indeed on 19 separate occasions involving any number of committees and any number of subjects.

    Questions for officials around Covid – blocked.

    Questions for Kainga Ora around its devious videos and plain dishonesty around Arena Williams and her appearance in them – blocked.

    Questions over Transmission Gully and its endless delays – blocked.

    Questions over the costings and delays of Auckland light rail – blocked.

    The list is extensive, but the results are the same.

    Even poor old Chlöe Swarbrick who teamed up with National, which alone surely is a small piece of political history, was denied access to officials over her desire to question them around their house price forecasting. And I thought she was a friend of the Government.

    It seems when it comes to accountability, or indeed transparency or honesty, if it involves anyone asking what might be deemed remotely embarrassing questions, then this government uses its majority on the committees to block any sort of scrutiny at all.

    So 19 times and counting.

    In a way they could get away with it, to the extent it’s not one of those issues many of us are going to get worked up about.

    In the midst of a cost of living crisis, another thing I am sure plenty of people would like to ask questions on at committees, how many people are more worried about their mortgage or the price of cheese, than they are select committee work?

    And that in a way is what Labour is relying on, the upfront economic issues they can’t hide from they have to address and that is why along with their Covid handling they currently sit behind the opposition in the polls.

    I note, by the way, between the TV One poll and last month’s Tax Payer Union poll, National are ahead in both, thus giving us a good enough sense that a potentially permanent shift has been made and the writing is on the wall for the Government.

    But it’s the machiavellian stuff we need to be worried about, it’s the political sleight of hand, the old “there is nothing to see here”.

    Three Waters is a classic example, self governance is another, David Parker and his group ferreting through rich folks doings, having set it up with zero consultation and now introducing law around “principles”, it is all work that they would rather you didn’t know about, far less ask about.

    That of course is the role of the opposition. But how can the opposition do its job effectively if every time they want to fire off a few questions at officials, hell even if they want to meet an official as Mark Mitchell does, all access is denied?

    Yes, there is the Parliament, but that is limited in both time and scope.

    This wouldn’t be so bad if it wasn’t so profoundly dishonest.

    If Labour had said at the start, look we aren’t really into openness and accountability is more trouble than it’s worth, and besides there’s a whole bunch of really ideological stuff around race that we’re desperate to get sorted before we’re booted out, then at least we could’ve expected what we’ve ended up with.

    But to have made such a song and dance about how angelic their intentions were, and how you could pop around for a cup of tea and a natter anytime you liked, because, after all we are all in this together, just shows you how much they played us for a bunch of suckers.

    The great test for the Prime Minister’s acting skills as we lead into the election is the challenge she will face when asked if she still thinks they are the most honest open and transparent the country has ever seen, and whether she 1) says yes, and 2) says it with a straight face.”

  3. Tucker Carlson Responds to 20,000-Word NY Times Story Calling Him ‘American Nationalist’

    Fox News host Tucker Carlson said he won’t read and isn’t planning on reading several New York Times articles about his career and show content.

    On Sunday, the NY Times published a lengthy series online and featured it prominently on the front page of its website, dubbing Carlson an “American Nationalist,” replete with heavily edited, stylized, and distorted photos of Carlson.

    Carlson, for his part, told Axios that he won’t read it and disputed the paper’s claims that he cares about ratings. During the first quarter of 2022, Carlson’s show was the second-highest-rated cable news program on TV.

    “I’ve never read the ratings a single day in my life. I don’t even know how. Ask anyone at Fox,” Carlson told the outlet in response to the NY Times’ article. “Most of the big positions I’ve taken in the past five years—against the neocons, the vax, and the war [in Ukraine]—have been very unpopular with our audience at first.”

    Shame is we don’t have someone in NZ on a channel that can do this. I guess we have someone but no channel and no money.

    • What so it can be white washed out of existence?

      Cindy will do what she always does. Block it.

      Or could we ask who drives all the blocking of everything that is today’s topic?
      Is it cindy or is there something or someone more sinister in control in Wellington?

      Have we a coroner with the power to investigate the police, unravel the message from Tarrant or indeed allow it to be published so we can see what it really is?

      Will that include all the participants from the National Party as well and how they were black balled into supporting removal of our rights.
      And people still want to vote for the Chrome dome.and his mates.

    • Two things as I understand it are relevant. The toothed one voted in favour of looser gun laws before Tarrant did his crimes, and the police didn’t even do what was required of them in the vetting process.
      I may be wrong about these two things, but it’s what I’ve been told. Tarrant’s a cunt, but the useless ones have some blame too.

      • I understand a Police firearms vetter is having some sleepless nights as the approval process was not carried out correctly.

        This will come out in the wash up.

        It could also backfire on the mad queen who apparently approved shortcuts in the vetting process.

  5. Ron De Santos with common sense.

    Musk to move HQ to Florida: ‘Importing some tech company from San Francisco has not been high on our list’

    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis discouraged Twitter from bringing its headquarters to the state following Elon Musk’s privatization of the platform, Jacksonville outlet News4JAX reported.

    At a press conference Monday, DeSantis said the company will bring between $15 and $20 million in profit to the state when Musk is officially the owner of the platform due to the state’s investment in Twitter. But he said actually welcoming the company into the state would result in a higher cost of living for residents of the Sunshine State.

      • Cycle lanes are a way for the green cycling communists to give the community a big visible F U.

        Plus their crony buddies in council contracting companies get to milk the government tit, freeing up kickbacks.

      • I would agree. I drive along side cycle lanes through Papanui / St Albans that are empty pretty much all the time. I see more Teslas on the road in a week than I do cyclists on those cycle lanes.

        Central City may be different, but with the narrowing of the city streets and the absence of street car parks, I can guess that many people that work in the City find it a lot easier to keep a bike at work to go local places. So it is less by choice and more by council design, as is happening everywhere.

        The days of being able to drive into town in ten minutes and get a park within 100m of the shop you are going to visit to make a 5 minute purchase are gone. It is either a 60+ minute visit, entailing a parking building 1km+ away from said shop, park on the outskirts and walk in, bike from home and arrive all sweaty, pay a small fortune by taxi, wait for an uber, or buy online.

        Now if that all happened driven by market needs, then OK. But it is being driven by govt and council bureaucrats who want to control our lifestyles and turn life into a battery hen existence. No farms, no freedom of movement, you will own nothing and you will be happy.

        Retail stores / shops are part of the social interaction that mankind needs to keep sane. During lockdown we were told:
        “Don’t talk to your neighbours (lest they share stories of freedom, and non vaccine compliance).”
        “Wear masks (it limits social interaction).”
        “Scan in (we need to track your movements and who you interact with).”
        “Buy everything online (that way we know what you rare buying).”
        “Only listen to state funded media and dismiss anything other than what I say on the POTty (you are not allowed independent thinking, and we don’t want you getting independent advice)”

        • Same thing has been happening in Auckland where cycle lanes have replaced street parking. In some cases the cycle lanes are two way in anticipation of all the cycle traffic that has yet to appear.

      • The only lane I see getting any regular use is the one on Strickland Street, during the morning and afternoon commuting periods. Why should this be? Could it be that the rest of the fucking things have been built in stupid places where not even cycletards ever have any reason to use them?

        Now take the Sparks Road cycleway to Halswell, for example. Not only will you hardly ever see a bicycle on it (and I go that way all the time with customers in the Selwyn District), but not a scrap of maintenance has been done on it since it was built, and all summer and autumn I’ve watched the weeds growing out of every gap and orifice, reaching up to half a metre tall. It looks unkempt and unloved.

          • Work aside, I’ve been into the Christchurch CBD perhaps twice in the last year. Neither occasion was an edifying experience. Empty streets yet nowhere to park (unless you want to be raped by Wilson Parking), homeless derelicts in doorways, empty cafes, tumbleweeds, wolves howling, all the atmosphere of outer space.

            What the earthquakes didn’t destroy, the council have fucked in a decade of hamfisted, ideology-driven rebuild. Bugger all people go there now. Meanwhile my little local mall is buzzing day in, day out. A constant hive of activity.

    • “It’s growing exponentially”

      “And given the ban on oil and gas exploration, and the closing of Marsden point, and rampant inflation caused by printing money to fund communism and pushing up the price of fuel, we expect it to grow even more, as people will neither be able to afford to drive, or obtain the fuel to do so.”

      There is a reason why there are 12 million bicycles in Beijing.

    • Thanks Kea. I was talking to a land agent from Havelock a week or so back. They noted that there was bugger all for sale & that people were putting off selling until the roads were usable presumably as they knew that it would tank the prices.

      • I’ve seen a heap of nice places for sale there. Though less at the moment. I think a few people bailed at the start of the road issues. The prices looked good by today’s standards.

        If you have a launch you could get a place right in Havelock and just climb aboard and head off into Pelourus Sound.

    Seymour told AM Early on Thursday the way Mallard has acted has been childish and said it’s time for him to stand down.

    “It’s time for him to move on. I just look at what these people in Ukraine are fighting for to have democracy,” he told AM Early host Bernadine Oliver-Kerby.

    “We’ve got one and the way Trevor Mallard is treating ours is just not good enough. I think it would be gracious of him to go.”

    Seymour said Mallard should’ve looked at previous court cases to show the trespass notices wouldn’t have stuck.

    New data shows more than a third of aged care facilities may be forced to close this year due to a lack of funding.

    “You’re going to see closures happening in the next three months … if you can’t get the staff, then you can’t deliver the service at all,” Ambridge Rose chief executive Allan Sargeant told Newshub.

    “It’s in crisis. We’ve got a definite problem going on. There is an underfunding that has been going on for many, many years and it’s just gotten worse with the cost of living.”

  8. A Priest And A Taxi Driver Arrive At The Pearly Gates.
    St. Peter welcomes them and shows them to their homes.
    For the taxi driver, a beautiful villa looking over a gorgeous field of clouds. “Thank you,” the ecstatic taxi driver said.
    Anticipating an even bigger mansion, the priest was dismayed when they arrived at a small 1-bedroom apartment.
    “St. Peter, I’m a little puzzled,” the priest began. “As a clergyman, I devoted decades of my life solely to serving the Lord. How come the taxi driver got a villa, and for me, only a small apartment?”
    St. Peter smiled. “Up here, we go by results. While you preached, people slept; while he drove, people prayed.”

    • I know a trial can jump around a bit, depending on questioner and different witness’s, but for the sake of getting full coverage, to gauge where the witness’s are really at, a bit more, though some parts are sort of repetitive.

      William Burr said the boy was not dead, nudged him and the teen moved.
      .
      About 3am, Palmer and Woolston took William Burr home for a cup of tea.
      Palmer said they were worried about William Burr, who had glass in his head and down his back.

      That burglary as being the 3rd or 4th time I hope can be raised much more as an issue.

  10. We already knew the Vax was a fraud, didn’t we?
    Here is some new information on the subject.
    The regulators were not doing their job…..this must apply to Medsafe too.
    https://market-ticker.org/akcs-www?get_gallerynr=13824

    The rushed “warp speed” development and approval of completely novel Covid-19 mRNA and DNA vaccines pushed
    on millions of people has resulted today in millions of reported injuries and thousands of deaths according to public
    health databases such as VAERS (US), Eduravigilance (EU), Yellow Card (UK) and others. This article reviews some of
    the publicly available documents on Pfizer’s non-clinical development program and points to its deficiencies,
    omissions and gaps that were clearly visible, yet never questioned by the regulators or other health authorities. The
    cursory nature of the entire preclinical program can be briefly summarized as “we did not find any safety signals
    because we did not look for them”. The omissions of standard safety studies and glaring scientific dishonesty in the
    studies that were performed are so obvious that they cannot be attributed to the incompetence of the
    manufacturers and regulators. Rather, the question of wilful negligence should be raised.

    Yesterday saw the ‘proof’ of Vax shedding come out…..although exactly what mechanisms are at work isn’t clear.
    https://igorchudov.substack.com/p/vaccine-shedding-finally-proven?s=r
    “Do vaccinated people shed their vaccine byproducts to us? We definitely, for sure, knew that vaccine shedding was not a thing, because “health experts and fact checkers” told us so. And we “believe science” and our “health experts”. Right?
    Except that it is WRONG and vaccine shedding has just been proven by science!
    Even I believed that there was no plausible mechanism for vaccine shedding. I thought that it was a baseless conspiracy theory. Stupid me. It turned out that I WAS WRONG and vaccine shedding is real and can be measured.”

      .
      …. Later modelling exclusively associated herd immunity with vaccination. ….
      .
      … By mid-2021 – before most mandates – the scientific literature was revealing that the vaccine waned;
      that breakthrough infection occurred and that there was extensive evidence that it produced a wide range of side effects, and even death.
      This knowledge should have invalidated any workforce vaccine mandate, but instead by October, the state doubled down and locked in mandates and regulations that would legally and socially coerce most of the population over 12 into accepting the shot. …
      .
      ….. Early treatments could have been integrated as a major tool to prevent hospitalisation and death.
      Early treatments avoid the dilemma of mutating variants while acting to protect at-risk groups whose immune systems might not be as responsive to a vaccine.
      .
      Conventionally doctors are at liberty to repurpose drugs for their patients, such as antivirals with a long history of safe use.
      However, in July 2021, the government locked in approved drugs for treatment. ….
      .
      ….. New Zealand Medical Council, the organisation that grants licences to practice medicine, declared that there was ‘no place for anti-vaccination messages in professional practice.’
      These actions may unwittingly undermine trust in vaccines and the doctor-patient relationship for years to come.
      .
      The implications of silencing doctors, some who have had their medical licenses suspended, when observed alongside the above-mentioned data gaps, are extraordinary. …

      • To be honest the vaccine messages has put me right off. I did not care that Doctors, parliamentarians and news media pushed this vaccine. No way was I going to take it, I have had many vaccines in the past for travel etc and I lost faith in any medical person. I had little faith in them previously as doctors have a license to PRACTICE medicine don’t forget, but this was the kicker. They are just medical goods providers due to our government and all the previous ones, we are not able to purchase medications with out their say so. most times we would be able to say what was wrong with us and what we needed without paying the middle man/woman/or who ever they happen to be on the day.

    “Increased emergency
    cardiovascular events
    among under‑40 population
    in Israel during vaccine rollout
    and third COVID‑19 wave
    Christopher L. F. Sun1,2, Eli Jaffe3,4 & Retsef Levi1*
    Cardiovascular adverse conditions are caused by coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) infections
    and reported as side-effects of the COVID-19 vaccines. Enriching current vaccine safety surveillance
    systems with additional data sources may improve the understanding of COVID-19 vaccine safety.
    Using a unique dataset from Israel National Emergency Medical Services (EMS) from 2019 to 2021,
    the study aims to evaluate the association between the volume of cardiac arrest and acute coronary
    syndrome EMS calls in the 16–39-year-old population with potential factors including COVID-19
    infection and vaccination rates. An increase of over 25% was detected in both call types during
    January–May 2021, compared with the years 2019–2020. Using Negative Binomial regression
    models, the weekly emergency call counts were significantly associated with the rates of 1st and 2nd
    vaccine doses administered to this age group but were not with COVID-19 infection rates. While not
    establishing causal relationships, the findings raise concerns regarding vaccine-induced undetected
    severe cardiovascular side-effects and underscore the already established causal relationship between
    vaccines and myocarditis, a frequent cause of unexpected cardiac arrest in young individuals.
    Surveillance of potential vaccine side-effects and COVID-19 outcomes should incorporate EMS
    and other health data to identify public health trends (e.g., increased in EMS calls), and promptly
    investigate potential underlying causes.”

  12. All is well with the new babies in Mallard Paradise on Kaiti Hill. The neighbour’s cats aren’t interested in them, and my wee hunter is occupied with catching rats (which are being well-fed from neighbour’s avocados)
    The teenagers are growing, but are still under the care of Ma & Pa…. will probably be another couple of months before they’re flying.

    Now you’d think observing that lot would be more than enough duckology for a day… but no, I got hooked on a China TV doco about the perilous life of hatchlings of Ruddy Shelducks in Inner Mongolia.

  13. The whole filthy practice of this government is to control many New Zealanders with no real evidence!

    … “It indicates the Government basically knew what many people were saying at the time, which was that they didn’t have the testing capacity that the Prime Minister and other ministers were saying that they did have.” ….

    ….. [Associate Health Minister Ayesha] Verrall said she was awaiting the results of the review into the ministry’s estimates of PCR capacity. ….
    https://www.newsroom.co.nz/ministry-told-to-underplay-covid-test-capacity

    And still New Zealand waits, and that review will be released on a Friday or when squirrels abound.

    An over abundance of vaxxes? Expiry dates? when will they be dumped? or forcibly used?
    When will that come to light in New Zealand?

    As being caught out in 1 lie; still blatantly deny and continue on that lying basis, arrogant elitists in their ignorance, as if they are the only ones with intelligence … yeah right … 🙁

  14. If this is just a 2nd string to Bridges bow, in not being owned by government & media bosses, could prove interesting.

    ….. Simon Bridges is moving into the media. The former Opposition leader has signed on to host Stuff’s first digital audio show. ….

    …..“In terms of the content, what I would say is, it won’t be what people necessarily expect from me. People have one sort of view of me, but I’m hopeful it will be unexpected and refreshing.

    “I know for myself, [the media] is how I get my news, and form my views and get a sense of the world we’re in, and so I hope other people will get something out of [my show] as well,” he said. ….
    https://www.stuff.co.nz/entertainment/tv-radio/300580032/simon-bridges-new-show-on-stuff-will-possibly-be-a-bit-deep-and-meaningful

    Or will Bridges just be a controlled opposition?

  15. Reserve Bank says house prices will become sustainable if the 10% price drop it’s forecasting over the next two years occurs

    So, have you been wondering what “sustainable” house prices are?
    The Reserve Bank has been telling us NZ house prices are above “sustainable” levels – but it’s not been clear to the great unwashed and would-be finance writers what ‘sustainable’ actually is.

    Well, hold on to your hats, ‘sustainable’ is apparently between 5% and 20% less than where the median house price is now, according to RBNZ analysis and modelling.

        • I’ll say it again. Buying property is long term. You will ALWAYS, ALWAYS make money over the long term. That couple who just bought their first home yesterday for $650000 will be millionaires ( on paper ) within 10 years. 20 years they will be multi-millionaires. You’re welcome.

          • I agree Mikey. Buy a home within your means and it’s all good. The great thing about property is it has intrinsic value. Eg. Real value. Property is a great investment.

            So we don’t need a govt backed Ponzi scheme to support it.

            Where we differ is I don’t tell outrageous lies about market trends 🤓

            How’s that letter to the Reserve Bank going sport ?

                  If it was worth 500k litres in 2001, you spent 60k litres in maintanence and renos yet its still only worth 500k litres today then youre going backwards.

                    Obsessed with paper value and the cost of something paid for with fake monopoly money.

                    Its only a loss if someone is stupid or forced to sell up, and if unforced then one would be buying again in the same market so makes little difference.
                    I bought a forever home mate, if only you knew the blood sweat and tears that have gone into this place maybe you would understand, not for sale dude so the generalization of prices/values that others spurt is irrelevant and i really dont give a crap.
                    The value i have for my home and property is literally priceless at this point in time, bets renting thats for sure and far cheaper too.

  17. Jacinda Ardern retains confidence in Speaker Trevor Mallard, takes jab at those ‘taking potshots with no confidence statements’
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2022/05/jacinda-ardern-retains-confidence-in-speaker-trevor-mallard-takes-jab-at-those-taking-potshots-with-no-confidence-statements.html

    One of those calling for Mallard to be removed is Jacinda Ardern’s former deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters, who on Thursday claimed she was “complicit” in keeping the Speaker “in a position that is morally untenable”.

    Ardern on Thursday said she continued to have confidence in Mallard.

    Ardern didn’t answer whether she thought Mallard had made a mistake, but said the Speaker has since worked through two issues.

    “Basically, do you treat all present in the same way or how do you also make sure the response is proportionate. You can see he has taken action to try and ensure it has been proportionate.”

    She also took a jab at those calling for the Speaker to be removed.

          Seen as Notional have the deputy speaker position in parliament, does that person step up or will labour screw the scrum again?
          Who does labour have in reserve to take over as speaker?

          • And with National having the Deputy Speakers position, surely this is the time for National to be pushing Ardern hard and the Speaker hard.
            But the leader of the Opposition, Christine Luxon won’t. To point score, point out the frailties of the PM, Speaker and Government, would never do.

They got biffed by her compliant cops, arrested and trespassed. She wouldn’t allow anyone from the hive mind club to entertain the thought of a “conversation”. Remember when every second line out of her mouth was “it’s a conversation the country needs to have”.

Their globalist sith overlords are out of the closet, and don’t give a toss that their plans are so transparent. They don’t care their WEF plans are public. They don’t care we know they sterilised a whole bunch of women with the vaccine. We are bugs to them.

  21. Guess this is down to saving the planet Wrap up warm, it’s going to get chilly for the bottom of the financial heap.

    Some people are struggling to pay their power bills, just one month after low-use charges were scrapped by the Government.
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2022/05/05/many-kiwis-struggling-to-pay-power-bills-as-prices-rise/

    Consumer NZ has been flooded with phone calls after the change, which will see the 30-cent fixed daily charge double, adding an extra $110 a year to the average power bill.

    It’s already taking its toll on the nation’s elderly, whose advocates say are struggling to find money to pay for the increased charges.

    It’s only going to get worse, as the fixed charge will continue to rise 30 cents each year through to $1.80 in 2026.

    “Currently on a low fixed charge you’ll be paying about $110 a year. By year five that will increase to around $660 per year,” Consumer NZ’s Paul Fuge said.

    • It seems the essential kitchen triangle has been out dated.
      I have seen what a frustrated tenant has done to a 2 year old stove, not pretty, and impossible to clean up.

      The house itself would probably be with in a Kitchen triangle of MacDonalds, Kentucky Fry & Liquor-land.
      Well advised not to have any one cooking if they are not sober!
      So long as the micro wave will reheat and then automatically turn off, unlike those stove top oven thingies that set the fry pan alight.
      A major discount on insurance would be possible if there is no cooking.

      Get with the times, all town planners would happily advise to have all the amenities within walking distance or is it “scooter distance” and now they have the plan for cycle ways to the front door, and mine that rainbow pedestrian crossing that many tenants vote for, paid in full courtesy of a few more high rate increases.
