  1. Carl Sagan said this There’s two kinds of dangers. One is what I just talked about. That we’ve arranged a society based on science and technology in which nobody understands anything about science and technology, and this combustible mixture of ignorance and power, sooner or later, is going to blow up in our faces. I mean, who is running the science and technology in a democracy if the people don’t know anything about it? And the second reason that I’m worried about this is that science is more than a body of knowledge. It’s a way of thinking. A way of skeptically interrogating the universe with a fine understanding of human fallibility. If we are not able to ask skeptical questions, to interrogate those who tell us that something is true, to be skeptical of those in authority, then we’re up for grabs for the next charlatan political or religious who comes ambling along.



  2. Ports of auckland can’t runthioer p[ort p[roperly but the Greenies that are board members can waste their time on this.

    Sparky the electric tugboat has arrived at the Ports of Auckland! The e-tug is expected to save 465 tonnes of CO2 diesel emissions.
    Ports of Auckland partnered with Damen Shipyards to make Sparky happen as part of its goal to be zero-emission by 2040.

    So, Sparky can pull as much as Hauraki? But what’s the bet that Hauraki can pull all day without having to refuel? Can Sparky do the same?
    And how ironic, the Port will send Sparky out to bring in a bulk freighter bringing in low grade coal from Indonesia to power the Huntly Power Station so that enough electricity can be generated to recharge Sparky.
    No surprise that the video has Sparky going around in circles. I’m guessing Chloe Swarbrick must have been at the helm because that’s all her Party’s green agenda achieves.


    As an aside to this. POT has had a huge coal facility sitting there unused for quite a few years. It was built for coal but because of the demands on the rail network for container transport it is now unused and the coal which used to be carried on rail in bulk is now trucked from POA to Huntly.
    And of course with something like 5 or 6 data centres currently with being built or on the drawing boards we will be up the creek with a real shortage of electricity. Its coming as soon as we get some cold weather.Then we won’t have the gas we need and so it goes..
    All in the name of non existent global warming.

  4. Morning Troopers,

    Once again, police have failed to protect details of firearms owners, which have fallen into the wrong hands. This will happen again if the firearms register goes ahead. It will put firearms owners and their families in danger, providing shopping lists for gangs.

    “Exclusive: Firearm owners’ details stolen in alleged burglary of old Auckland police station

    Personal details of firearms owners, including their names and addresses, were among documents allegedly stolen from the disused Auckland City police station, the Herald can reveal.

    The documents could serve as a shopping list for criminals seeking to steal lawfully obtained guns.

    A major criminal investigation continues to find out who may have come into contact with the private firearms documents.

    Affected firearms owners are now being contacted by police and told their details were on the pilfered papers.

    There has been no word on exactly how many firearms owners’ details are caught up in the breach.

    Officers became aware of the break-in while executing a search warrant in Mt Albert in May where they found police property, including documents and expired pepper spray.

    Auckland City Police district commander Superintendent Karyn Malthus said four people have been charged to date with burglary and offences related to receiving stolen property.

    “Among the stolen property recovered were a number of documents which included firearms licensing information, containing people’s personal details,” she said.

    “Our investigation is continuing to work to understand the full breadth of documentation that was stolen.

    “Police are now contacting people whose documents have been obtained as a result of the burglary to advise them of the situation.

    “There is nothing to indicate any involvement of organised criminal groups in this burglary at this stage.”

    As part of the process following the major breach, police say they are working with the Office of the Privacy Commissioner.

    Malthus said there was no evidence at this stage indicating the involvement of organised criminal groups in the alleged burglary.

    “The ongoing criminal investigation is continuing to establish who may have come into contact with the stolen property.

    “Police would like to reassure the public that this matter is being taken extremely seriously and the protection of all peoples information of the utmost importance which is why there is a significant ongoing investigation underway.”

    The Herald asked police whether firearms owners should consider taking additional steps to secure their weapons in view of the breach.

    Malthus said: “In general, we always advise firearms license holders to remain vigilant around the security measures they have in place for their firearms.”

    Firearms owners were asked to contact police if they had any concerns.

    The old Vincent St station was formerly the headquarters of Auckland City police before it was ditched for a new premises at College Hill several years ago.

    Acting Privacy Commissioner Liz MacPherson said in a statement police would need to conduct an investigation to ascertain the size of the privacy breach.

    “Any organisation holding personal information must protect the privacy and mana of the people who entrusted it to them.”

    MacPherson said while the Privacy Commissioner had not yet received complaints arising from the breach, anyone with concerns about their privacy could contact her office for advice and support.

    The breach comes amid an ongoing gang war in Auckland where more than 20 houses have been shot up, some with high-powered rifles.

    In this year’s budget, police were allocated more than $200 million for the establishment of a new firearms unit.

    Police are in the process of establishing a firearms registry, one of the recommendations of a review following the Christchurch mosque terror shootings.”



  5. Controversial social media surveillance commissioned by the Government analysed New Zealanders’ private messages to Government sites without their knowledge, and contrary to the officials’ descriptions of the work.

    Private company Annalect (now Resolution, controlled by US and Australia-based companies) provided the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet with some 231 “social listening” reports over a period of two years, at a cost of more than a quarter of a million dollars.

    In March, Cheryl Barnes, deputy chief executive of the department, told the Herald the data analysed in the reports was already available in the public arena, and collected from sites like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.




  6. Ever wondered what’s going on behind the scenes? In this column, senior business journalist Tom Pullar-Strecker picks apart some of the background decision-making that might normally go unreported but can have a big impact on the economy overall.

    ANALYSIS: Is it a tax? Is it a tariff?

    No, it’s a “carbon border adjustment mechanism”, or CBAM for short, and its first superpower may be to push up the price of imported cement.

    But if and when it arrives on the scene, expect National to promptly label it a “concrete tax”, regardless.

    To understand what on Earth I’m going on about, it is necessary to have a basic handle on emissions trading schemes.


    These are designed to curb carbon emissions by requiring businesses buy a carbon credit for each tonne of carbon emissions they release into the atmosphere.

    But what if a business buying carbon credits is competing against a rival in a country that is dragging its heels on climate change and isn’t forced to buy credits?



    • I read that early this morning Viking. If the whole ETS, Carbon Credits and this CBAM is not the biggest scam forced on this country by Politicians of all breeds and those who wish to control us even more?

      This is forced on this country by the likes of James Shaw who has absolutely no experience, expertise or actual working knowledge of the ETS, Carbon Credits, but everyone bows down to him, meekly.



  7. Was able to help dispose of two dozen oysters on my trip south, they were $27 a dozen. Cooked with chips and 2 eggs here locally $54 a dozen.
    Was looking through some of my old records and came upon Max McCauley singing The Bluff Oyster Song in which he was singing oysters are far too dear, could not afford 95 cents for a dozen and still afford a jug at 33 cents. My recollection is that jugs were 33 cents in 1972 and thereabouts, I remember that because then, just married, could get a jug, a bacardi and coke and a packet of chips for a dollar with change – I used to get full sacks of oysters and some stage during the early 70’s for I think $20.
    Times have changed.



  8. Hooker Phil ,My Dad spent many years on the coastal shipping that used to operate in NZ ,we had a constant supply of large flat cans about 250mm across and 50mm high of frozen oysters, Ma would give them away to friends and neighbors at every chance and us kids never got sick of eating battered oysters and chips.
    Dad also bought 20 liter square cans of mutton birds with a round opening that were preserved somehow as they would sit in a cupboard as we ate our way through them ,Wow times have changed with $54,00 for oysters eggs and chips



  9. Maori lead the way in reducing family violence.

    Bollocks. Hahahahaha!

    They are the greatest perpetrators of the weasly worded “Family Violence in this country, by a long, long way. There scores of Maori named and run organisations funded by the Government claiming to be working towards reducing family violence, but here in the King Country, reports over the years do not seem to have shown any reduction in “Family Violence’ and the cases which Police deal with or go before the Courts.

    Why does it seem that there are only Maori organisations run by Maori, for Maori claiming to be working to reduce “Family Violence” however, I am unaware of any European, Indian, Chinese or Chilean organisation in this country, doing the same.




    • While recently travelling vast distances through farming areas, I noted it was rare to see animals. The stocking rates are very low. Any emissions are offset by the huge amount of vegetation.

      The net effect is most farms absorb more co2 than they emit.



      • Tell these idiots that grass, shelter belts, orchards, shade trees etc should be included in calculations and you would get a blank stare.

        “”It’s really important that we get this right. Customers around the world are demanding higher levels of sustainability in the products they buy, so there is the potential for real competitive …”
        I thought this sustainability buzzword was a different issue to the climate change BS.

        The big problem for farmers is Luxon is neck deep into all this BS and will not change or challenge anything they bring in.



      • Looking at Sky News au the other day, they had a bloke on the panel who was either a scientist or climate change guru saying that the tons of carbon dioxide taken up by the forests and grass lands in Australia is a shit load more tons than they emit..?
        He reckons they should be paid by the World Climate Institutions because they are better than nett zero.
        Very interesting listening to this fella !~



    • Saggy that plan is designed for maximum revenue generated for consultants… there goes another 10k per year farmers have to dish out to a third party for the privilidge of paying more taxes to buy unicorns.

    • Thanks WG. Two points –Peter Williams is really on top of this issue –knows all the relevant detail,
      It is amazing Sean Plunket had to be told that the scheme will have the country divided along Iwi “boundaries” and nothing to do with water catchment etc.



    • Am I the only person here who is getting very tired of Jarrod Gilbert who is apparently a “gang expert” whatever that may be, opening his trap as chief apologist every time a gang member does what gang members do?



      • Tarquin, Gilbert has been the gangs Bum Boy since he was just out of nappies.

        He has set himself up as an expert and an academic, but in reality, he is just another wannabe who has achieved nothing and grown the wealth of this country, not one iota.



  11. From the United States:

    Very impressive to read about this…

    Pretty Amazing! A blogger added up the deer license sales in just a handful of states and arrived at a striking conclusion: There were over 600,000 hunters this season in the state of Wisconsin .. Allow me to restate that number: 600,000! Over the last several months, Wisconsin ‘s hunters became the eighth largest army in the world. (That’s more men under arms than in Iran . More than France and Germany combined. ) These men, deployed to the woods of a single American state, Wisconsin, to hunt with firearms, and NO ONE WAS KILLED. That number pales in comparison to the 750,000 who hunted the woods of Pennsylvania and Michigan ‘s 700,000 hunters, ALL OF WHOM HAVE RETURNED HOME SAFELY. Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia and it literally establishes the fact that the hunters of those four states alone would comprise the largest army in the world. And then add in the total number of hunters in the other 46 states. It’s millions more. ________ The point? _______________________________________ America will forever be safe from foreign invasion with that kind of home-grown firepower! Hunting… it’s not just a way to fill the freezer. It’s a matter of national security. *************************************** That’s why all enemies, foreign and domestic, want to see us disarmed. Food for thought, when next we consider gun control, whether you agree with it or not. Overall it’s true, so if we disregard some assumptions that hunters don’t possess the same skills as soldiers, the question would still remain… What army of 2 million would want to face 30 million, 40 million, or 50 million armed citizens??? For the sake of our freedom, don’t ever allow gun control or confiscation of guns. (IF YOU AGREE, AS I DO, PASS IT ON, I FEEL GOOD THAT I HAVE AN ARMY OF MILLIONS WHO WOULD PROTECT OUR LAND AND I SURE DON’T WANT THE GOVERNMENT TAKING CONTROL OF THE POSSESSION OF FIREARMS) GOD BLESS AMERICA!!

  12. Can anyone remember which lying sack of shit * stated frequently during 2021, “the Pfizer vaccine is safe & effective”?

    Yet about six months later:

    ……”Covid-19 vaccination is going to lead to mass depopulation.

    This is a pretty bold claim to make. ‘Your Government is trying to kill you’ is even bolder.

    But unfortunately, these bold claims are now backed up with a mountain of evidence, and most of that evidence can be found in the confidential Pfizer documents that the U.S. Food & Drug Administration has been forced to publish by court order.”…….


    * First correct answer written in crayon on a head towel will win a virtual chocolate fish.



  13. Speaking of a sack of shit

    Speaker Trevor Mallard dodges questions over handling of Parliament protest

    However, Opposition MPs on the committee were keen to question Mallard over the protest on the forecourt of Parliament in February and its aftermath – including the trespass notices handed down to a number of former MPs, including former deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters.

    He shut down a number of questions about the protest, saying he was there to comment on issues related to future expenditure.

    Mallard refused to answer media questions after the committee, walking past reporters repeating “no comment”.



  14. My brothers gone along to the groundswell/tpu meet in gore, rekons over 400ppl there and reports that peter williams speech was excellent and well worth listening if one can find it. Thinks its being livestreamed to facebook??? Any of you facebook folk able to find and post it on hys? (A working link would he great viking)

    He also reports there are 5 absolute morons there wearing masks, the rest dont give a fuck 🙂

    Another great thing that happened was gores POS mayor tracey hicks got booed by everyone there! Fucking scum sellout pos



  15. It was dark & stormy night in deepest Southland when a young lad decided to visit a friend. Still a distance from his destination his car broke down & it began to rain so heavily that he couldn’t see his hands in front of him. He walked for as long as he could but the rain became too much to bear. He found a tree & stood beneath it hoping for a lift.
    Hours went by & he was beginning to give up hope. It was a quiet road indeed that he had found himself on. The next town wasn’t for miles so he’d have to stay the night under this tree if he didn’t find a ride.
    Just as things were looking grim, he catches a light moving slowly towards him. He’s saved!

    Desperate for a ride, he jumps into the vehicle once it stops for him. Once in, he turned to the driver seat to say thanks & only then did he realise that the then moving car had no driver. The rain was so heavy, he couldn’t even hear the sound of the engine as the car slowly continued its journey.

    The lad was too scared to move, too afraid to jump out of the car & run. Seeing the car was coming to a sharp bend that lead down to dark water he began to pray for his life. He was sure the ghost car would go off the road & into the river, where he would surely drown!

    Right before the car made it to the bend, a shadowy hand reached in through the driver side window & turned the wheel, guiding the car around the bend, thus avoiding a wet demise for the lad. Just as silently, the hand disappeared through the window & the hitchhiker was alone again.

    Paralysed with fear, the lad watched the hand reappear every time they reached a bend. Finally, scared to near death, he’d had all he could take & jumped out of the car & ran towards the first town he could find.
    Wet & in shock, he went into the nearest pub & told everybody about his supernatural experience. A silence enveloped the room & everybody got goosebumps when they realised the guy was telling the truth about the strange car & the ghostly hand that guided it on its way.

    Just then, two men walked into the bar. They were dripping wet & as they took off their rain gear, they looked around the room. Their eyes came to rest on the hitchhiker. They pointed at him ominously & he feared they were ghosts come to get him.

    “Look!” said one of the men, “There’s the idiot who jumped into our car when we were pushing it in the rain.”



  16. Forgodsake, it’s everywhere. I frequently use Goodreads. Today I noticed a big pink banner saying “Celebrating Pride Month” and inviting you to “discovery new books by LGBTQI+ authors.” I’m getting so sick of this shit in my face everywhere I turn. LGBTQI authors can go fuck each other. I’ll read an author because he or she is good, not because he or she is a fag.



  17. This is as interesting to me as it is tragic. Rapid onset liver cancer killed my double jabbed and boosted previously healthy and fit sister earlier this year. Ten weeks from diagnosis to death bed.

    6 year old gorilla Kimani from Calgary zoo suffering from serious form of quickly spreading pediatric liver cancer, not seen before in such a young gorilla. She was covid 💉 3 months ago.




    • From V2’s link:

      In early August of last year “Ross Ardern instead added his rebuke of the family members by telling them to stop listening to silly people on the internet and trust the Government for truth.” AFTER

      On March 14 last year, Prime Minister Ardern told reporters at a press conference in Rotorua:

      “Do feel free to visit covid19.govt.nz – otherwise dismiss anything else. We will continue to be your single source of truth. When you see those messages [on social media], remember that unless you hear it from us, it is not the truth.”

      Emboldened & deluded by their execrable religious backgrounds the unbelievably arrogant Ardern dynasty continues to spread ignorance & death via Pfizer.



    • Even cartoons of him he still looks like a fuckwit.

      Hows this for stupidity…
      Nats want to ban gang patches (easy identification theyre in a gang)
      Then they suggest a law to prevent 3 or more gang members from gathering… but now no way to easy identify them.

      Imo let them wear their patches, it just lets the rest of us know theres scum within sight. All removing them will do is make them wolves in sheeps clothing.

      Any govt/politician is dreaming if they think they can outwit/beat the gangs. Aussie has been far more harsh on gangs and yet theyre still there as strong as ever except theyre now more wise and covert but still killing each other.



      • SB, it is more the Middle Eastern gangs doing each other in. They are the difficult very dangerous critters and much harder to identify than OMC members.

        In Queensland, it was Premier Campbell Newman who bought in the very first tough gang legislation, no gang regalia, Plod being able to photo tattoo’s on gang members for later identification, no consorting. It worked, the gangs in Queensland buggered off to Norther NSW. The NSW Govt criticised Campbell Newmand Government for these anti gang laws but within a short time enacted similar legislation.

        Similar legislation to what Queensland has would work here but the Govt, Greens and the Lovies would be apoplectic, so won’t happen here, The people will just have to put up with shit from lowlifes.



  18. Doctors Suing Food and Drug Administration Over Ivermectin
    By Alice Giordano
    June 6, 2022 Updated: June 6, 2022

    A Washington law firm has filed a federal lawsuit against the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for interfering with the use of ivermectin as a treatment for COVID-19.

    The lawsuit was filed by Boyden Gray & Associates on behalf of three doctors who were disciplined for prescribing human-grade ivermectin to patients.

    The firm’s founder, attorney Boyden Gray, is a former legal adviser to the Reagan and Bush administrations.

    Gray told The Epoch Times that the FDA had violated well-established law that allows doctors to prescribe an FDA-approved drug as an off-label treatment.

    Ivermectin was no different, he said. It was approved by the FDA in 1966.

    “Congress recognized the importance of letting doctors be doctors and expressly prohibited the FDA from interfering with the practice of medicine,” Gray said.

    “That is exactly what the FDA has done time and time again throughout this pandemic, assuming authority it doesn’t have and trying to insert itself in the medical decisions of Americans everywhere.”




  19. “Government officials are doing a cost-benefit analysis around potentially requiring dominant supermarket companies to sell retail stores to make way for new players.

    You have got to be kidding.

  21. Another sports man down.

    A New Zealand-born sailor and father of two is being mourned “all over the world” after he died while competing in America at the weekend.

    New Plymouth-raised professional sailor Hayden Goodrick, who had been living in Colorado with his young family, died after having chest pains during an event in Newport, Rhode Island. He was 38.

    Hayden’s early career started when his uncle gifted him lessons at the New Plymouth Yacht Club as a pre-teen.

    But his drive for the sport saw him chase his dream all over the globe, taking part in the America’s Cup, as a key member of BMW Oracle in 2007, and founding the US One Sailing team – driving it to success in 2013.

    • Yawn, you have the same mindset as climate change fanatics.

      Focusing on anomalies whilst completely disregarding long term trends.

      Kea o wise one and the great nostradamus of ysb what will house prices be doing in 5yrs and 10yrs from now?… dont get triggered by facts and reality 🙂 we all know theyre certainly not going to be cheaper then today.
      Trends birdy ya gotta look at the trend.

      Even better is to just be like most non speculative home owners and just dont give a stuff about it, its only reallybrelevanr by those in the market unless… you trying to by a pile of sticks and gib to nest in? Nah, even better i rekon youre a failed real estate agent 🙂 no wonder youre so fixated and triggered when it comes to housing.

      How many of those 30k unsold trademe listings are yours bro?



      • “ Kea o wise one and the great nostradamus of ysb what will house prices be doing in 5yrs and 10yrs from now?”

        This is me writing. Not quoting the banks you owe money to and who you rent money from. Ok cockbreath?

        Prices should be upitty up up in 10 years.



      • If people keep dying from the genocide jab, there could be a surplus of houses and not enough people to live in them. Then you would see a proper crash. But by then you would own nothing and ….how does it go…….



    • Just a little bit further to fall & the over-leveraged ticket clippers will abandon their hovels to market forces & we can bid farewell to the parasitic class. Banks will be loath to lend unless borrowers have a reasonable deposit which will depress the market even further.

      Finally decent people will be able to buy homes & start families.



        • Nothing went wrong. I made my quid via forestry then farming but success doesn’t necessarily blind one to the type of society we wish to live in. Note that you could search every comment I’ve ever made on any blog without finding one favourable reference to bleeding heart, socialistic shit.

          What I’ve always advocated is home ownership as a road to social inclusion, community involvement & stable families. IOW pride which can never be instilled in people who don’t even know where they’ll be living next month.

          The only vehicle I’ve ever seen deliver these outcomes was the State Advances scheme of the 60s & 70s which delivered all of the above & ensured that sufficient new builds occurred to satisfy demand & ensure tradesmen were available to build them.

          What we have now & pay heavily for is social engineering which doesn’t come within a country mile of delivering the equivalent social good of home ownership.

          Renting sucks balls!



          • You nailed it nasska. The housing situation has not only destroyed our economy, but has wrecked our social fabric. This has created fertile ground for the far left marxists to seize control.

            You want to know why we have Ardernism, then look to our housing costs.

  28. Ho Hoi Ho. Prebs give l;abour another serve.

    Labour is betting that inflation has peaked.
    Will Labour be forced into a snap election?

    Panicked by the cost of living, the Government has introduced a temporary three-month cost of living package for 2.1 million adults that will cost $814 million. About 82 per cent of the population will be receiving their income in full or part from the government.

    Every cent of the package will have to be borrowed.

    It is unsustainable. Politically, it is a huge risk.

    The granting of a benefit is rarely appreciated. After all, the Budget produced no jump in the polls. However, the withdrawal of a benefit always produces an angry response.

    Unless the Government can point to inflation having dropped dramatically, Labour will anger 2.1 million voters.

    By October it will be clear whether inflation is falling. Even if it has, people will notice the loss of $27 a week just before Christmas.

    If inflation is still elevated, then removing the income support will be one of the most unpopular decisions by any government. Overseas, people riot for less. It will be electoral suicide.

    But deciding to continue the income support, having just 18 per cent of the population supporting the other 82 per cent, will shred whatever economic credibility Labour has.

    The only way to avoid having to cancel or extend the income support package would be for Labour to find an excuse to call a snap election.



  29. The duck rattled

    Watch: Speaker Trevor Mallard barges through media, refuses to take questions over protest handling

    Speaker Trevor Mallard was ducking questions on Wednesday, storming out of a Select Committee and through media.

    “No comment,” he repeated to reporters.

    Mallard also refused to answer MPs’ questions at the committee about the protest at Parliament and the trespass notices handed down afterwards.

    “It’s not in the public interest to go into things which are currently before the courts.”
