  2. Why, is Andrew Little going to the WHO meeting in Geneva?

    Is it to sign up to the WHO to have control over you and this country during anything they, the WHO and the Communist Tedros, who controls the WHO, that may declare whatever the WHO so choose, to be a pandemic.

    Be very afraid of what Andrew Little, Ardern and this Govt are going to do and the abrogation of control over your wellbeing and livelihood..

    Tucker Carlson, sees the same in America. This is one of the more lucid explanations.

    Be very afraid of what is coming in the long run and you will have had no say.

      • We need an external definition of “Maori” rather than an internal “I feel I am Maori” definition.

        Personally, I think that you have to be at least 50% of a certain race to claim you are a member of that race.

        This leads to the next question of whether it is even helpful to a nation to have people within it believing that their racial identify is more important than their national identity. Are we not all New Zealanders now?

        • OS, we were when I lived in what was once Paradise.

          But now we have Politicians and self interested greedy people who have chosen to do their best to divide us and wish to take us down a path of division. They are in their view on the right track of the mantra, united we, stand divided we fall. And that is what they seek. The division of the once peaceful, strong society we once had.

          And you are right, it is not helpful to have people believing that their racial identity is more important than their national identity. I have seen this with very close family members. They have chosen one minor racial identity above everything else. It has caused division and separation, which is of their making and choice. The carnage and sadness is most unfortunate.

    • A real good protest against Mahuta’s “3 waters” where effectively full “Proprietorship” will be given to an elite.

      One can scroll down and pick up on some of vids and the comments on that AKL Harbour Bridge protest.
      https://www.facebook.com/mananewslive/

      It seems that some arrests, hand cuffed, were even before the Harbour Bridge event, and then no charges, and delivered to Victoria Park.

      Bear in mind that this protest has been coming travelling down from the Far North, and only now is there a media mention.

      Consider that when cyclists & pedestrians wanted to cross the Bridge last year, the police only 1 arrested
      …. Mathieson was eventually released without charge, ….
      https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/300323635/auckland-harbour-bridge-cycle-rally-arrested-cyclist-says-access-to-bridge-needed-to-modernise-city
      Then they were appeased with the concept of a Bridge that actually cost about $50 million to just put up some plans.

      Mean while “3 waters” is still being primed with leaking $$$ to continue on.
      Better it is stopped all together than expect it possibly maybe a very costly stop after the elections.

  3. Pelosi Barred by Catholic Church From Receiving Communion Over Abortion Advocacy
    By Joseph Lord
    May 20, 2022 Updated: May 21, 2022
    biggersmaller Print

    Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has been barred by the Catholic Church from receiving Holy Communion over her support of abortion, which the Catholic Church strongly opposes.

    The decision was announced by San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Joseph Cordileone, who serves as archbishop for Pelosi’s home city.

    “After numerous attempts to speak with Speaker Pelosi to help her understand the grave evil she is perpetrating, the scandal she is causing, [and] the danger to her own soul she is risking, I have determined that she is not to be admitted to Holy Communion,” Cordileone summarized in a Twitter post attached to a letter announcing the decision.

    “There can be no more extreme example of … cultural depravity than when direct attacks on human life are enshrined in a nation’s law, celebrated by society, and even paid for by the government,” Cordileone wrote in the opening to the letter, published to the diocese website. “This is why Pope Francis, as much as any pope in living memory, has repeatedly and vividly affirmed the Church’s clear and constant teaching that abortion is a grave moral evil.”

    • Viking, how twisted that the American’s kill 100s of thousands of their own potential young people whilst opening the southern border to allow criminals and bludgers from shithole countries to flood in at a rate never seen before.
      Abortion is a personal matter IMHO but full term murder of babies is a disgrace that must be stopped, by the way its happening right here thanks to our “KIND and CARING” horsefaced PM.

  4. I guess it would mean a lot to Pigloosey that notification, and serves her right, also Biden belongs to the same church somewhere in the old USofA, and has supported abortion to, so he should be barred from it as well. Oh dear even their church is turning against them. Oh happy days, I don’t care what hits them but as long as something does I shall be happy. FFFFFJA as well. just saying that I am against abortion after 3 months and there is the morning after pill if you didn’t want to get pregnant in the first place or perhaps you could be on the pill or use some other form of contraceptive. Abortion is NOT a form of contraceptive in my thoughts.

  5. A West Auckland story,,out this morning early getting some exercise in the waitakere foothills when on a particularly dark street I could see something on the road in front of me which turned out to be 3 cows which I passed carefully, FFS another 300 meters further on I see something else looming in the pitch darkness, now this could only happen in the west it was a fricking great safe opened with door further down the road and drawers hanging out ,I stopped to move it off the road and wow was it heavy at around 600×600 and the walls appeared to be solid steel around 20mm thick.
    Rang the cops about the loose cows as I ride MCs and would hate to find out that some poor bastard hit one of them,the dispatcher was more interested in the safe but assured me someone was on the way to look at both Westy problems LOL.

  6. WHO health wondering why about the “Monkey Pox” ….. Really … hmmmm ….
    History seems to have a Rhythm with some Rhyme, to do another repeat.

    More on the “Monkey Pox” as mentioned above, has not been formulated to be biological weapon, …. yeah right. but but …. lets dabble, ….. but what the hell is going on?

    The planning put into the “Monkey Pox” just on a year ago.
    Note the timing, the dates.

    ……. now, we have this “tabletop exercise” involving a terrorist attack using Monkeypox, and the exercise says the “attack” takes place on May 15, 2022. Lo and behold, by May 18, 2022, we have an ACTUAL outbreak of Monkeypox.
    https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/in-march-2021-the-nuclear-threat-initiative-held-a-drill-for-global-monkeypox-terror-attack-may-15-2022-and-now-we-have-an-actual-outbreak

    Just throwing this link out there as it is really there in November 2021 from the ones who were part of this exercise.

    …. In March 2021, NTI partnered with the Munich Security Conference to conduct a tabletop exercise on reducing high-consequence biological threats ….
    https://www.nti.org/analysis/articles/strengthening-global-systems-to-prevent-and-respond-to-high-consequence-biological-threats/

    I see in one of the graphic boxes:— “Move 2″
    Monkeypox engineered to to be vaccine resistant.
    ” Move 3″
    Relevation of terror group origins. — infiltration of civilian bio lab

    Seems to be another step, even if a small step in creating another terror, to push for tyrannical autocracy, based on supposed medicine, and well timed to push another controlling WHO Pandemic Treaty with overall powers of sovereignty.
    So it seems Little and or Ardern will be full on signing and supporting this.

    Another point to bear in mind, just where are those biolabs? … hmmm … not newsworthy despite the UN being notified this month of some funny labs????

    Who? What governments are supporting this, and probably outside of their jurisdictions and plausible gaps to create distance to who really financed them.?

    • Oh how wonderfully timely for the WHO cabal for there to be a disgusting pandemic outbreak of puss filled pustule monkey pox just as countries are to sign a treaty to be ruled over by Tedros and the inept global WHO. 🧐

      I heard a doctor say anyone who has had the smallpox vaccine is safe from the monkey pox. I suggest you stay out of the bathhouses though boys.

    I predict there will soon be a – highly contagious dangerous variant. Requiring more government power and less personal freedom. Along with a clamp down on freedom of speech.

  8. Judy married Ted and they had 13 children. Ted died.
    She married again, and she and Bob had 7 more children. Bob
    was killed in a car accident 12 years later.
    Judy remarried again, and this time, she and John had 5 more
    children. Judy finally dies, after having 25 children.
    Standing before her coffin, the preacher prayed for her. He
    thanked the Lord for this very loving woman and said:
    “Lord, they are finally together.”
    Ethel leaned over and quietly asked her best friend,
    “Margaret, do you think he means her first, second, or
    third husband?”
    Margaret replied: “I think he means her legs, Ethel.”

  9. What do you think made the big gash in the side of the police prison bus in yesterdays bridge march!
    Don’t think you could do that by hand, so don’t think it was the protesters!
    More likely a poolice driver wasn’t watching where they were going and drove into something and scraped the side on something!
    Me thinks that the cell strength is on the inside. Might be something to remember!

    • Heavily “framed”, inferred about the damage in other reports, ….

      ….. A police van on site had damage to it, though police confirmed the damage was not caused by protesters. ….
      https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/300594070/eleven-arrested-after-protesters-stop-cars-on-auckland-harbour-bridge-assaulted-police

      ….. and now here, slipped into the the lower part of the article is a sort of bland “correction”, when “corrections” are always never to be admitted.

      I also wonder in parts with the opening & closing of the Bridge, were certain times in synchronicity to wind squalls, but omit that reason to lay the blame onto the Conspiracy theorists Protesters to aggravate the general public.

      Also to consider the numbers arrested become blurred, as they seem to be placed on the Bridge, when it seems arrests were done earlier as well, and then no real report of going to the police station and charges were laid with later Court dates.
      There may well be some, but will not match the arrest numbers.

  10. That Elon Musk meme is utter crap. 3,650,000×4500=16,425,000,000. That’s 16.425 TRILLION dollars.

    Musk’s fortune is generally calculated to be around 218 billion. And to compound the error even more; on what planet is 16 TRILLION only 15% of 280 BILLION?

    Memes like this are flung around like confetti and gullible people with no critical thinking ability just suck them up.

  11. COVID deaths yesterday: “Of the deaths reported today, two were from the Auckland region, two from Waikato, one from Lakes, one from MidCentral; three from Canterbury, and one from Southern. Two people were in their 70s, six were in their 80s and two were aged over 90. Nine were men and one woman died.

    I wonder what the normal deaths at this time of year in 2019 would have been?

    Remind me why school children need to wear masks? Why do healthy people of working age (who have had their “vaccinations”) need to wear masks?

    • Statistics NZ advise that there were 2,835 deaths in April 2019 & that approximately 80% of deaths are of people aged 65Y & over.

      I would note that traditionally, pneumonia & assorted seasonal respiratory illnesses were the vehicles the Grim Reaper used to clean out the hospitals & aged care facilities. IOW Covid be fucked……nothing’s changed except for a backlog of the still twitching dead who have been isolated from all the viruses that would have taken them over the past couple of years.

      • Like the “forest fuel” of dry leaves and bark that Green policies have allowed to accumulate in eucalyptus forests in Australia, to produce unnaturally destructive forest fires (which can then conveniently be blamed on “Climate Change.”)

        Good political move. Create a useful crisis, that you can leverage to push through other policies.

  13. That’s very rude!

    Delegates from the United States, New Zealand and three other other nations staged a walkout Saturday when a representative from Russia began his opening remarks at a meeting of trade ministers of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation group in the Thai capital, officials said.
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2022/05/22/nz-among-apec-delegates-to-walk-out-on-russian-speaker/

    A statement from the office of New Zealand Trade and Export Growth Minister Damien O’Connor said he walked out “in protest at Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which has slowed the region’s economic recovery from Covid and made it harder for people in the region to get food on their tables. He walked out in good company.”

    A US official in Bangkok confirmed the walkout but did not provide further details. He asked not to be identified. There is diplomatic sensitivity over speaking about the incident because the proceedings were held in closed session.

    The walkout occurred just as Maxim Reshetnikov, Russia’s minister for economic development, was set to deliver his opening remarks, said a Southeast Asian diplomat, also speaking on condition of anonymity.

  14. What would a new electoral law member’s bill would mean?

    With Green MP Golriz Ghahraman getting lucky with the biscuit tin of democracy this week, what would her electoral reform member’s bill mean for New Zealand?
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2022/05/22/what-would-a-new-electoral-law-members-bill-would-mean/

    Ghahraman’s bill aims to achieve several outcomes, including lowering the voting age to 16, lowering the MMP threshold to 4%, abolishing ‘coat-tailing’ for parties that win electorates, changing donation laws, and more.

    Auckland University election expert professor Jennifer Curtin said the makeup of Parliament could be very different if the threshold was lowered, based on previous election results.

      Theyre desperate for a voting boost, overseas voters tend to vote left, then theyre targeting the brainwashed young and the scum that hate law and order.

      Labour will soon get desperate and try ram this shit through for next year, woketard luxon will happily back it.

        ……”The voting age is ‘entrenched’ under the Electoral Act. Any change would need to be supported by 75% of MPs or endorsed in a national referendum, presumably by voters aged 18 and over.”……

        But it’s been argued that without a constitution a simple parliamentary majority can create new law or abolish existing law. The Queen’s assent through the Governor General is an automatic rubber stamp farce. Our Supreme Court is a Labour dominated bunch of feminists.

        As scary as it may be once we elect a government they are our dictators for the next three years. Any safeguards are illusionary.

      “It felt as though the colonisation of my people was being glorified.”

      The ride featured models of “cave-like” Māori crouched over fire, and narration heavily focussed on European migration.

      So what she should have been able to see, was Maori exiting a black Ford Ranger outside a KFC outlet with Capt Cook reflected in the window, sailing by, in the distance being chased off by local Maori in their Boston Whalers with 2x 240hp Te Mercury’s on the back .

  16. Interesting figures from the Aussie elections.

    A cut and paste of a comment on an Aussie blog.

    “ALP got only 32.8% of primary vote. LNP got 35.4%.

    LNP primary vote collapsed 6% but ALP primary vote is even less than last election.
    ALP got there relying very heavily on preferences.

    ALP looks like getting majority as a result of wafer thin margin – with less than a third of voters giving them 1st preference. “

  17. CONCERNING PINK SHIRT DAY; THINGS MAY NOT BE AS THEY APPEAR…

    This article from The Daily examiner NZ raises some interesting questions, summarised in the following paragraph:

    ‘These types of programmes are wanting to politicise the sexualisation of school children under the guise of bullying programmes rather than deal with the school bullying issue as it should be dealt with. They are predominantly about promoting a LGBT-narrative….’

    The comments from concerned parents on the RH side are also worth noting.

    ‘Agenda’s’ come in many colours and, like rust, they never sleep…

      Sure we have some violent little thugs in our schools, but the definition of bullying has become wider and wider so the problem is too big to deal with other than by virtue signalling.
      Making the weatherman present in a bright pink t-shirt that was too small for him just to make some vague statement was seriously unkind.

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/128711360/budget-2022-at-least-27m-set-aside-for-new-buildings-at-parliament

    The Government has promised at least $27 million for two new office buildings on Parliament’s precinct.

    The 2022 Budget, published by Finance Minister Grant Robertson on Thursday, showed the Government would go ahead with the planned construction, putting aside $27m in capital spending and further funding that was not specified “for commercial sensitivity reasons”.

    Parliament has in recent years been squeezed for space after an annexe behind the Beehive and Bowen House, a leased 22-floor building, were vacated due to required earthquake strengthening.

    The budget promise went largely unmentioned by Robertson and other political parties on Thursday. Speaker Trevor Mallard, who has responsibility for the Parliamentary precinct, said the project had “majority party support”.

    In recent months I have had plenty to say about both greenhouse gas policy and forestry as they are affecting and will affect all New Zealand agriculture. Here, I focus specifically on sheep farming to seek answers as to where the industry might head.

    • Anyone notice in the comments to V2’s link reference to Wiltshires? For the townies they are a big bodied “hair sheep” that doesn’t need shorn. Their “wool” isn’t woolen, rather it feels something like a soft steelo to the touch & the sheep moult their fleece doing away with the costs of shearing while reducing the risks of flystrike.

      They’re a perfect lifestyler’s animal but it’s interesting to note that they’re now being run on commercial farms.

  23. The Data Says What?!

    How many times in the last 18 months have you heard the line spouted that the Covid vaccine lowers your chance of becoming unwell enough to be hospitalised? Or, that you’ll be less likely to catch the coof in the first place?

    Before anyone has a conniption and feels compelled to yell MISINFORMATION!, let’s take a look at the Ministry of Health’s OWN data.

    There is a running tally of 7 day averages being published by RNZ. It’s worth a visit. There you will find charts like this one.

    • From V2’s link:

      ……”The actual trial results quickly morphed into something different that was then promoted by the media and our government officials at every opportunity – day and night on TV, radio, internet, newspapers, text messages, emails, phone calls, magazines, posters, billboards, flyers, and from medical professionals, scientists, politicians, so-called ‘experts’, influencers, and anyone with a ‘professional’ role or a mouth in their face. It was inescapable, feverish, and well past the threshold of obsessive.”……

      Which is the reason your correspondent isn’t vaccinated & never will be. Best put by Ian Watson a British author who wrote last year:

      ……”If you have to be persuaded, reminded, pressured, lied to, incentivized, coerced, bullied,
      socially shamed, guilt-tripped, threatened, punished and criminalized …
      If all of this is considered necessary to gain your compliance —
      you can be absolutely certain that what is being promoted is not in your best interest.”…….

      Cell Phone is turned off, after I had put the sound to mute.

      I think some one reported their phone did go nuts on one of those covid alerts, and they believed it was turned off.
      I wonder if it was just in a sort of “sleep mode” and they can bypass that, or can they really bypass & activate your phone.?

      Allowed myself to figure some tachycardia or arrhythmia should it vibrate. 🙂

      Doubtlessly there will be a text message, and or a phone log event, when I switch on tomorrow.

      Maybe put the cell phone in the fridge? or deep freeze? or in the microwave? on the Faraday Cage principle. 🙂 or wrap in Tinfoil?

      • It was me S1. I turned both my IPhone off and sound as well. Warning still blasted.

        Disable it in the settings? I wonder if ‘airport mode’ would stop it, probably just delay it? That’s our authoritarian leader – we must receive alert whenever she wishes.

      • I’d have thought a warning system for tsunami alert or similar might be a useful thing, so testing the system is not much different to the old siren testing that they’ve done for years.
        Of course because it is a system run by bureaucrats it is guaranteed to be a fuck up, but I don’t really get why so many folk are so triggered over it they’d bother running around trying to shut off phones and stuff.
        The whole Civil Defence thingy is pretty HomeGuard, but better to treat it as the joke it is.

        • Switched on, Incidentally my “SMS is full”:, as notified this afternoon, and I have not cleared anything, so nothing has done a catch up with me.
          Cleared some messages, and No Alert came through. 🙂

          …. a system run by bureaucrats it is guaranteed to be a fuck up, …

          Agree with that, a warning to people who live on a flood plain, of the rising waters, that is if they get that right. like how much rain is the trigger for a flood.
          Instead of going for a look, but even that is fraught as their seems to be an ignorance, lack of experience to understand what they see.

          It then becomes like the boy who cries wolf about, and the people upset about the spider in the bathroom.
          That warning becomes pointless when it is sent to many many more who live on a hill also.

          When some one calls that there is a fire, it is pretty much based on fact, and in towns of volunteer fire brigades, many accept and support the need of the fire siren, and know of the weekly fire brigade practice, on a certain day & time.

          Who will those bureaucrats answer to? if they get it wrong, or over use it, when already they are hunting in that “frame of mind” of for every one’s good in the “Precautionary Principle” then for “Safety & Health”

          More bureaucrats feel that this is tool to be used as they feel the power and the ability to control people, so will over reach in its use.
          Like some-one complains about a gun going off early in the morning and complains. So the alert will be for a “lock down”, while it is actually duck shooting morning.

          AOS have been called out on rabbit shooters, who have been okayed with the safety and place of shooting.
          Even people respectfully carrying a gun from their garage to the house after a hunting trip have had Police arrive on scene, but now it would be turned into a “lock down”.

          …. treat it as the joke it is. ….
          and in some ways you right, as it is “better to laugh than cry” while the bureaucrats seek full compliance by various laws, regulations, bye-laws, by enforcers, police, judiciary, fines, confiscations, penalties, jail, etc..

          The real problem is some things are a good and valuable tool.
          Like fire, a good servant, but a bad master.
          In the trend to big, and now global government

          The problem is getting more like that many do not trust the police, Doctors, or any government and their intentions.

  24. Today with Auckland Transport we announced the proposed names for the three new stations to be constructed between Papakura & Pukekohe.
    -Maketuu
    -Ngaakooroa
    -Paeraataa
    We are honoured to have these names gifted by Mana Whenua. The names reflect significant historical and geographical features around the new stations. The use of these names on our network will encourage and support the integration of te reo Māori into everyday use.
    The next step is to formally establish these names through the New Zealand Geographic Board (NZGB), and we will shortly submit a joint formal proposal to the board for consideration.

    So taking the train to Auckland is transversing to a different world then.

  25. HERE WE GO AGAIN…

    No doubt others have also just received the ‘Nationwide test of the Emergency Alert system’ on their mobile phones within the last few minutes, and cynic that I am, I am now wondering what nastiness is looming on the horizon from our ‘Oh so caring’ ///// PM and her mates.

    There be trickery being planned at palace methinks.

    Interestingly, my usually apolitical wife also asked the self-same same question, while also (and surprisingly) observing that, because of the way it was presented (Noisily, scarily, and out of nowhere), there will now be those who will be in a state of fear, expecting an undefined ‘something’ to happen as a result, and that by such fear is ‘Control’ maintained.

    I wonder what form this new ‘nastiness’ will take, who will be deemed to be the ‘fall guys’ and the ‘villains’ in the piece, and what excuse will be used this time.

    I doubt that we will have long to wait, (and, perhaps ‘conveniently’, isn’t dl supposed to be departing for the USA very shortly)?.

  26. Independents and Greens candidates snatched votes from both major parties and caused upsets across the nation as Aussies look to send a pointed message to both Mr Morrison and incumbent Prime Minister Anthony Albanese.
