    .
    Police say a bystander attending the party quickly pulled out her pistol and fired at Butler, fatally injuring him.
    .
    “Instead of running from the threat, she engaged with the threat and saved several lives last night,” said Lieutenant Tony Hazelett.
    “She was lawfully carrying a firearm and stopped a threat.
    There was a graduation party and a party with kids so obviously someone just graduated high school and we could have had a casualty shooting.”
    Charleston Police say several witnesses and the person who fired the gun waited on police to get there and fully cooperated with the investigation.
    .
    At this time, no one has been charged in the shooting. The investigation now goes to the Kanawha County Prosecutor’s office for review. …

    Top banking executive suspended ‘for telling the truth’ about global warming: Bolt

    .
    Sky News host Andrew Bolt says a top banking executive was suspended “all because he told the truth about global warming”.
    .
    HSBC suspended Stuart Kirk following a presentation he gave at a Financial Times conference last week in London in which he said climate change was not a “financial risk that we need to worry about”.
    .
    “This is why, of course, so many people believe in the great global warming scare because it’s so dangerous to tell people the plain, cool facts,” Mr Bolt said.
    .
    Worth watching as Andrew Bolt & his guest serve up the issue of Climate Change, Banking, Risk, etc, quite well.

    .
    This was the speech about the Climate Change risk, showing it is negligible, and how he has that figured 🙂
    Great as he shows us how to calculate in the real life and see the real risks, that are still there.

    • Me thinks the modern liberal version of freedom is freedumb. Freedom from the guilt of a degenerate sexual deviance is not freedom, it’s the opposite. To lesser degrees freedom to indulge your passions from over eating to Netflix binges is not freedom.

      Freedom for the tyrant to enslave you, is perhaps what they mean.

      Thus, a good man, though a slave, is free; but a wicked man, though a king, is a slave. For he serves, not one man alone, but what is worse, as many masters as he has vices.

  3. There are not only fucking idiots who rule us here in New Zealand, but they function in the UK as well.

    This Dumbarse thinks Sheilas have cocks.

    “Labour MP Stella Creasy has said a woman can have a penis and that author JK Rowling is wrong.”

    Well I have looked and I can tell her as well as JK Rowling and Ricky Gervais, they don’t. (If you have not seen Ricky Gervais Super Nature on Netflix, it is worth a watch, he deals to Drongo’s like M/s Creasy well.)

    And these people rule over the Hoi Poloi and think they are superior.

      • Post-truth. A tactic of the frankfurters, a spin-off from critical race theory. These whako’s fled Germany to spread their poison from America. And here it is. They sought to destroy culture with their political theories, so they could rule a wasteland of slaves.

      • SB, that Rahui is in Kaikohe. Kaikohe now is the country’s most peaceful town.

        It is not until John Tamaheri & Matthew Tukaki jointly declare a Rahui in West and South Auckland will peace be bought to those two fine places.

        Unfortunately, being Sunday, both can not declare a Rahui until Govt Koha has been received and counted after their respective office opens on Monday or maybe Tuesday, sometime. Then after a Hui and Consultation, one may be declared, but more Consultation may be required.

        In the meantime the Musket Wars in Auckland will proceed.

                Off topic but has Jimmy Two Mums chastised the mad queen for clocking up thousands of air miles and leaving a huge carbon footprint in Uncle Sam’s country.

                Air Horse One will need replacing soon the rate it’s being ridden.

                I guess the mad queen knows she will be handed her skinny arse next year so making the most of it while she can. Watch out for her clocking up numerous overseas flights after Jethro makes her an honest women.

            • An old dairy farm boss was from kaikohe, he had an older maori relief milker and came to milking carrying an old 22 rifle one morning.
              He had shot and wounded some cunt the night before that was trying to steal his crop and thought his mates might come looking for him at work… that was one of the more tame stories he told me! Sounds like the wild west in those parts.

  6. Listening to the rural programme “rex’ before and they were interviewing a guy from silver fern farms.
    A representative from SFF was in the US with dl and they are in to climate change and carbon footprints etc.
    Is SFF not owned by the Chinese ?
    So our farmers are screwed over climate change in a company owned by Chinese who keep building coal fired power.
    Great.

  7. Some may find this of interest concerning, as it does, the training of the officers involved in the Texas school shooting:

    “The Uvalde training session 2 months ago relied on guidelines that give explicit expectations for officers responding to an active shooter.
    The training is clear: Time is of the essence. The “first priority is to move in and confront the attacker.” ”

    Not wait over an hour outside the room where the shooter did most of the killing before engaging him.

      • False flag, eh?
        – How many people would need to know about it, to ensure that it could be achieved?
        – How would the silence of these people be guaranteed? What if just one person had a change of heart and leaked the plan to the public or to another party?
        – How would all the records of the planning and operation be secured? No copies left on laptops?

        The first rule of False Flags is that they shouldn’t smell like False Flags. Otherwise, people will start to ask questions.

      • More like “gun-free zone” so could be arrested for bringing a gun to that scene.

        Any inquiry will be checking to see if your “gun permit” is upgraded enough and current to allow you to bring a gun to the “gun-free zone”.

        It will be hammered home to the cops that any error they make, will have the book thrown at them.
        Like what if they inadvertently shot a child?
        Any mistake will have major consequences.
        Penalties of gaol time?

        Now in the Buffalo school shooting, what guidance was given here?

        …Two law enforcement officials told The Buffalo News that authorities believe the former agent, who is believed to be from Texas, was one of six people who had regularly communicated with Gendron in an online chatroom. ….

        …. According to The Buffalo News, they could not confirm whether this agent had accepted the invitation to view Gendron’s plans. ……

  8. It’s only three more days until the magnificent woman that is our PM gets to meet her idol, one of the worlds greatest orators, a man with wet trousers, Joe Biden.

    I can not wait to get and hear his reaction to being in the company of such a beautiful, intelligent, forward thinking, honest and much loved person as our Leader. A Leader, one who runs a Government, so inclusive, for all New Zealanders, the likes that this country has, or the world for that matter, has never seen before.

    The wait will be an eternity and I for one are frothing at the bung in sheer anticipation. Joe’s fawning words are much awaited. They should be amongst the greatest ever uttered. ///

  9. By the end of this year, the country will have more new residents than any other year on record.

    The nationality breakdown shows migrants from India (69,594) are the most common nationality applying, followed by the Philippines (47,304) China (35,451) and South Africa (31,248).

        • Very pushy and obsequious when they want something done, rude and confrontational when something’s going wrong, very quick to point fingers, and on the whole both lazy and inept at their jobs. This general stereotype of mine comes from 30 years of working with them in the professional engineering side of the construction industry. Not one of the many I’ve dealt with, often extensively, has left me with good memories. The cultural and attitudinal gap is too wide for me to bridge.

      • I have met quite a few Indians over the years and have very much enjoyed their company to be honest. I have not found anything wrong with them as a race of people. Anyone cooking curry gets a smell in their houses and if you open the windows doors and burn candles inside the smell goes. But that also goes for fish especially salmon.

    • An immigrant is someone who leaves their old world behind, to come to your country to become like you.
      A colonizer is someone who brings the ways of their old world with them to your country and wants you to become like them.

      How important is it for an immigrant culture to permit marriage to members outside of their group?

      Even if members of a certain culture generally become model citizens, if they oppose cross-cultural marriage, is that a bad thing?

      What are the long-term risks of a highly insular culture? Is this exacerbated if they generally tend to be high achievers?

      • ……” if they oppose cross-cultural marriage, is that a bad thing?”……

        Good question. A Chinese bloke I knew quite well came to NZ as a 14YO just after WW2. His parents managed to get him out through Hong Kong just before the 1949 Revolution. Long story short, he ended up owning a fruit & vege shop & made a good living. He was probably the most “Kiwianised” Chinaman I ever met. Mixed well, spoke understandable colloquial English, smoked, gambled & drank like a fish.

        Yet his wife was imported from China. They had two kids, one boy one girl, who were very Westernised, high achievers & well accepted in the local community. They had boy/girlfriends but when it came time to settle down they married other Chinese.

        All of which proves very little except that regardless of the “melting pot” theory of last century normal people tend to coalesce into ethic/tribal groupings.

        • An Indian friend of mine has a 27-year-old son. My friend’s wife has arranged for a girl (who works in a bakery) in the Punjab to come out to Auckland to marry her son. The two have never met. She doesn’t speak English nor drive a car. She will live with her new in-laws, and be under the control of her mother-in-law and new husband.

          I asked my friend if local ethnic Indian girls were not good enough for his son. He opted out and said that his wife was taking care of everything.

          • OS, sounds like things have not changed since growing up in the 50’s and 60’s and seeing exactly what you and Naaska have outlined. It is still being reenacted.

            How do you assimilate if one only returns to the old country for continuation of lineage and why stay in the new country if you long for the old country and what it has to offer?

            10

            • It depends on what you mean by “assimilate.”

              Perhaps “assimilation” has many components. I will attempt to list some of them.
              – Learning the language
              – Learning the local laws
              – Learning local social customs
              – Being a net tax contributor
              – Contributing to local sports and social clubs
              – Joining a local established religious organization (if you so choose)

              Some signs of non-assimilation
              – Sending your children to a language school to augment their native-speaker skills of the old-world language
              – Insisting that the old-world language be spoken exclusively at home and with others of your culture
              – Sending your children to a sports / culture club that is exclusive to your culture
              – Sending your children back periodically to the home planet to keep in touch with the language, culture and extended family
              – Insisting that your children date only other members of their culture
              – Insisting that your children only marry members of their culture
              – Sending back to the old world to arrange a marriage for your child

              Why do people chose not to assimilate?
              – Birds of a feather flock together
              – They want to maintain control over their blood line
              – They don’t agree with the values of the host culture
              – They feel that they are betraying their ancestors
              – Giving up the old ways means giving up part of who you are
              – Learning new stuff is hard for some people
              – They believe that their culture is superior
              – They feel shame for leaving their home culture and must strive to be a shining example of that culture, to atone for their sins.

              FWIW: Many years ago, I had personal experience of this ‘Marry within your own’ aspect of Indian culture (And no it wasn’t me), when a young couple I worked with (He European, she Fiji Indian, but English-educated) were on the verge of engagement The girl was suddenly called-back to Suva for ‘Family’ reasons, then resurfaced in NZ six months later newly married to a Fiji Indian cousin who’s command of English was at best ‘limited’.

              The (now ex) ‘fiance’ was, of course, devastated, and the girl was VERY, VERY, unhappy.

              Apparently Mummy had refused to countenance the ‘mix and match’ and had made ‘arrangements’ without the girl’s knowledge, before luring her back to Fiji on a pretext, then presenting an ultimatum ‘Marry the cousin or you don’t return to NZ’.

              The girl, faced with an impossible (ie NO) choice, capitulated.

              Those who knew the situation were, of course, absolutely appalled and amazed that the ‘Modern Miss’ should have been so compliant to her mother’s wishes. We concluded that the only explanation was that while you can take the person out of their culture, you can never take the culture out of the person, and also that Indian mothers can be very, very, devious and cunning.

              It was a most unfortunate situation, and revealed an aspect of Fiji Indian (Gujarati) culture we never realised existed.

I have had a gutsful of NZ wages and the cost of living. I am only 60, hold a responsible job coordinating export containers, and the company expect me to work 12-14 hours a day for $24.50 per hour.

  10. found out.

    Aotearoa has just 93 known cases of men with XXY chromosomes, but it’s likely there are many more who don’t know they are affected. Melanie Earley reports.

    XXY is commonly referred to as Klinefelter syndrome, and it’s estimated to occur in 1 out of 600 males.

    Rather than the usual pattern of 46 chromosomes, with one X chromosome and one Y, there’s an additional X chromosome, resulting in a genetic signature of 47, XXY.

    Males born XXY may have low testosterone and reduced muscle mass, along with less body and facial hair. Most males with this condition also produce little or no sperm.

    There are 93 known cases in New Zealand, but it’s likely there are many more who will never be diagnosed or only find out when they try to start a family.

    Coker says when he was told he was XXY it was left up to him to find out what that meant, and looking for answers online was an “absolute minefield”.

  11. Sister Margaret died and through some error found herself in hell. She immediately called Saint Peter, explained the situation, and Saint Peter said he’d get right on it.

    The next day the nun didn’t hear from Saint Peter and called him back.
    “Please set this error straight before tomorrow,” she begged.
    “There’s an orgy planned for tonight, and everyone must attend!”

    “Of course, Sister,” he said. “I’ll get you out of there right away.”

    Apparently, her plight slipped his mind, and the following morning he received
    another phone call from hell. He picked up the receiver and heard, “Hey, Pete, this is Maggie. Never mind!”

  14. Sadie, a 54-year-old woman had a heart attack and was taken to the hospital.
    While on the operating table she had a near-death experience. Seeing God she asked, “Is my time up?”
    God said, “No, you have another 43 years, 2 months, and 8 days to live.”
    Upon recovery, Sadie decided to stay in the hospital and have a face-lift, liposuction, breast implants, and a tummy tuck.
    She even had someone come in and change her hair color and brighten her teeth! Since she had so much more time to live, she figured she might as well make the most of it.
    After her last operation, she was released from the hospital. While crossing the street on her way home, she was killed by an ambulance.
    Arriving in front of God, she demanded, “I thought you said I had another 43 years? Why didn’t you pull me from out of the path of the ambulance?”
    God replied:
    ”I didn’t recognize you.”

          This is something which the greens don’t seem to realise: That if their ‘caring’ policies are implemented it will be THEM who also suffer. They seem to have this naive view that they will somehow not be effected.

      • Disaster predictions have been wide of the mark so I expect you are right but take some precautions. I bet Mrs Nasska is a whizz at turning a few dried peas, beans, rice or pasta with a little mutton fat and some brassicas out of your garden into a delicious meal if things do turn to shit.

        Hubby has gone full hippy and installed a glasshouse with newly found enthusiasm for growing plants from seed. Keeps him out from under my feet for a bit.

        • Food supplies at Chez Nasska are much as you describe WG. I garden as a hobby, the ball & chain is a great cook & like most women used to living in the country she buys well in advance so we seldom run out of anything.

          Plus we have a daughter & her old man who have a ten acre block & the son runs a few sheep & cattle on a hundred acres of cliff face he lives on in the central Hawkes Bay. Two grandsons are mad keen hunters. There’s not usually much room in the freezer.

          And as stigie suggests a liberal supply of mutton fat comes in handy for all sorts of purposes. Like greasing wheel axles, dressing saddles, an ingredient in explosives or anywhere you need a lubricant. 🙂

    As for the euroes, well starving the Krauts and the Nazis would be justice delivered.

    Just a waste of emotional energy.

  16. If you have Facebook you may be able to see this which apparently shows Jacinda coming out of Blackrock offices. I will bet that this visit does not appear in the newscasts on her US trip.

    Blackrock is the world’s largest financial outfit, controlling over ten trillion dollars worth of assets. They are an integral part of the WEF (Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum) on the road to a socialist world government. (UN Agenga 2030).

    https://www.facebook.com/messenger_media?thread_id=4346108258802562&attachment_id=588381629561680&message_id=mid.%24gAA9wwy7r24KHPbN5GWBDG4zPrMob

    I think that this may have been censored off already. They do NOT want you to see the connection.
    It was a private video taken of Jacinda coming out of the Blackrock building (the video panned to show all the labeling on the building). She was questioned by reporters but refused to answer any questions at all and rushed off.

  17. It feels like we’re back in 1973 at the start of the Oil Shocks and raging inflation, but in those days we didn’t have gigantic levels of debt.
    (Maybe borrowers are hoping that there will be high levels of wage inflation to eat away at the debt, like 50 years ago.)

    Or will it be different this time? Two differences are that birth rates are way lower than they were in the 1970s and we have such a higher proportion of retired elderly in our population. The elderly have the assets that the youth generations don’t, so maybe there will be political pressure (if the young ones can organize themselves) to force some kind of asset transfer.

    • Sadly it seems the first thing people these days ask is “for the government to do something” with an expectation they will be bailed out of any financial hole they find themselves in. Back in 1988ish paying over 20% on the mortgage was just something we had to deal with personally, one way or another.

    • Universal problem when you become rich you have less kids. The wealthy, though they can afford kids, indulge themselves. Generally everybody has been tricked into feeling wealthy through issuance of debt. Debt though, is not wealth. A big family though, is true wealth. As is local community. The breeding demographic problem is solved by the corporations via mass immigration lobbying and sneaky support of. The right are guilty as charged your honour.

      Reject debt mentality and raise a big family, and you’ll be fine. A crash in the mean time, is inevitable. Assets have been concentrated, but they too will be dispersed, when debt comes knocking for her compound interest.

  18. I’ve spent a lot of time travelling around rural areas since returning home. The South Island is so beautiful and without crowds of people. I love it. Sitting here looking out at the sea and mountains, it’s hard to believe our country is under attack.

    Sure it doesn’t have the vibrant gay scene – of places like Noosa – but it’s right for those of us who aren’t filthy perverts rotting with Monkey Pox.

  19. National’s Chris Bishop accuses Government of economic mismanagement as mortgages skyrocket
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2022/05/national-s-chris-bishop-accuses-government-of-economic-mismanagement-as-mortgages-skyrocket.html

    It comes after New Zealand’s high inflation rate of 6.9 percent forced the Reserve Bank to increase the official cash rate (OCR).

    The Reserve Bank on Wednesday raised the OCR to two percent, up 50 basis points, to take the cash rate to its highest point since mid-2016 which means mortgage rates will rise.

    On Sunday, National Housing spokesperson Chris Bishop said Kiwis are facing paying thousands of dollars more on their mortgages every year.

    “The latest analysis from the Reserve Bank will make for chilling reading for mortgage holders, with the central bank predicting the interest rate on one and two-year mortgages will hit 6 percent next year,” Bishop said.

  20. Just got back from walking the dog. Hadn’t seen an old mate for a few weeks so varied the route slightly & called into to visit him.

    Got to the gate & he’s standing on the verandah waving me off. Strange, so I rang him a few minutes ago. Both he & his better half have Covid. He’s recovering a bit but she’s still as crook as a dog.

    BUT these are the same, now triple jabbed, people who worshipped the Mad Queen, St Ash & the ground they walked on. They wore their vaccination marks with pride, probably wore masks to bed & nearly disowned their eldest daughter when she refused point blank to let her kids anywhere near a Pfizer needle.

    I bloody near pissed my pants laughing but my humour was lost on them. 🙂

  21. Economists warn businesses will face consequences as New Zealanders cut back on spending
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/money/2022/05/economists-warn-businesses-will-face-consequences-as-new-zealanders-cut-back-on-spending.html

    Kiwis are beginning to pull back on buying those items we don’t need right now.

    With food, fuel and mortgage payments now eating up more and more of our earnings, those things we don’t have to buy this week or next are starting to take a backseat.

    Digital payment company Worldline monitors card spending and has noticed the start of a drop in discretionary spending.

    • “With food, fuel and mortgage payments now eating up more and more of our earnings, those things we don’t have to buy this week or next are starting to take a backseat.”

      What are some of the things on your “backseat” list?
      – Overseas travel
      – New consumer durables (make the old ones do a little longer)
      – Bars and restaurants
      – Shows, concerts, and other ticketed events

      In the words of your ancestors: “Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without”.

      • “Overseas travel”…… Not a thing that needs doing. All the overseas destinations are full of foreigners who can’t speak English & strange food. A bit like South Auckland really.

        “consumer durables (make the old ones do a little longer)”…..How? With planned obsolescence you can’t buy parts to fix anything. Other than that, good idea.

        “Bars and restaurants”……. places for people who can’t afford kitchens.

        ” Shows, concerts, and other ticketed events”. …. aka wankerism.

    • Economists. Like the word, mists, they operate in a vacuum capsle of time pondering what their limited world view allows them to repeat from another from the mists whilst p[laying with numbers on a spreadsheet. Anyone can do that.

      Much like epidemiologists.
      I suspect that no one on YSB would consider a single one of those overpaid tossers to be anywhere near the truth nor accurate in any way.

      On the ground intelligence suggests that apart from a few who over stretched them selves life will plod on as usual.
      Stop for a moment and think.

      Fonterra are just about to pay out,I think the biggest payout ever.
      Fonterra are already predicting big numbers for next year,
      The kiwifruit industry just completed 4.47 billion dollar turnover and this year predicting more.
      The wine industry is still going as is the Apple industry and the cherries and so on.
      Logs may be down but that’s not unusual
      Meat is in short supply with good pricing.
      Plenty of housing being built. (Not much being sold for the moment.
      Looking at the screen industry they are going flat out. Company I deal with that supports these things says Amazon did everyone (including the taxpayer). a favour by buggering off. Has allowed lots of others to come back into the studios, new ones that are now underway.
      IT can’t get the people they need.
      There’s so much more.

      Our difficulty is importing too many new cars to meet emission standards etc.
      Not having enough Labour.
      Paying too many not to work.
      Paying too many civil servants.
      Tossing money at things that are of no value. (oh and you though Shane Jones was bad but at least most of his allocation is getting stuff done. Look at Opotiki).
      Sacking good people who refused the jab.
      Making people ill with the jab.
      Too much emphasis on greening everything.
      Exploding the cost of our energy.
      Shipping.
      Trying to solve all our major problems in 3 years. Especially roading and housing.
      Coming up. Lot of immigration at a high costs so they can fill up all these new houses. And you thought it was to help the people at the bottom. Never was and never will be.

      There are plenty of house holds with 200k+ incomes, plenty of them, 4 people on a basic wage these days.
      The problem is for the two or less people on a basic income especially if they have kids.
      A dieing population which is about to dump innheritances on their families like we have never seen, (We started to see this in the bay about 6 years ago) Middle aged people with large inhertiances especially out of Auckland. Thats what drove the increased prices over the beech, everywhere.) there lots more to come. ( Nothing for kids to inherit a million or two nowadays. Even naaska will leave his kids more than a plot.)
      And if you don’t think so look around and see who has all the new cars and who struggles.

      While we have this huge disparity in HOUSEHOLD incomes we ain’t never going to fix our housing problem. No amount of Blaming people who were thrifty, went without, and planned to accumulate some property. Oh you all forget the commercial or industrial property owners and just blame a few oldies for the issue. You don’t stop to conder the role of super funds buying up property for industrial and what that does to the cost of sections. How that drives the housing further out of town.

      Lots of Kiwi’s are actually high income and high wealth by any standards.
      The argument is how you assist those at the bottom level because we will always have them.
      Do you think they should live in Mansions or live in a tent?
      How do we change that situation?

    • yup I dont have financial worries at the moment. But I am still circumspect in what I buy. Is it absolutely necessary? Can I do without it? Is there an alternative? I think more and more people are thinking the same. The world is a bit of a mess at the moment with the war, the price of oil, and incompetent governments in most countries. Best to be a bit careful,

    • Was out and about yesterday. Everywhere we went was busy as. Long queue for the checkout at K Mart in Albany. Roads just as busy. Usual Auckland traffic jams in all the usual places. Didn’t see anything approaching a slowdown. Still to come to this part of the world maybe?

      As an aside we visited 8 or more different shops without masks. Not challenged at all and treated well by staff.

  22. Oh it’s Sunday. Let’s have a bible reading:

    Blessed is he who seizes your infants and dashes them against the rocks. – Psalm 137

    For she has rebelled against her God. They shall fall by the sword, Their infants shall be dashed in pieces, And their women with child ripped open. – Hosea 13:16

    Oh and abortion is wrong 😑

    National’s Gerry Brownlee questions Nanaia Mahuta’s absence as China signs deal with Samoa in Pacific power grab
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2022/05/national-s-gerry-brownlee-questions-nanaia-mahuta-s-absence-as-china-signs-deal-with-samoa-in-pacific-power-grab.html

    First the Solomon Islands, now Samoa.

    Samoa has become the latest Pacific Island nation to sign a controversial agreement with China, prompting questions about how New Zealand will respond to the superpower’s growing influence in the region.

    China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi had reason to smile and wave after sweeping into Samoa and securing yet another Pacific Island deal. He’s been travelling the region with a wide-ranging economic security offer.

    A leaked draft obtained by Newshub shows China wanting to cooperate with Pacific countries on law enforcement, health, poverty reduction, maritime, and more.
