  1. The Creature running our Country and the police minister have been sent emails that expose undeniably that police have actually fabricated evidence against a citizen of NZ, I will of course keep the YSB community informed about what happens, This is a man who I have known since my first day in primary school ,and it is in regard to a FAL seizure, believe me it’s a fucking disgrace what has happened.
    Besides that is the entire western ruling class one huge joined at the hip cabal .??
    It’s been disclosed that Ray Epps is married to an executive in charge of a division of Dominion enterprises, you know the very same corporation that produces Dominion voting machines and systems. Ffuuucckk.

    • “Besides that is the entire western ruling class one huge joined at the hip cabal .??”

      Yes and no.

      History teaches us that acting in unison is not necessarily by conspiracy, rather their interests are compatible. When these mutual interests change (which they will) these groups may become enemies. For example, Japan in 1942 took advantage of Hitlers wars in order to seize Asia from the Colonial powers. There was no natural love between Japan and Germany.

    • You sure youve got it right this time revvy? In the past youve managed to swallow bullshit hook line and sinker… i hope youre right but why send it to those too tossers?
      All that does is give them something to hand the spindoctors and now if the media forget the bribes and happen to ask a question an entirely plausable made up excuse will be ready to deflect and shut down any debate.

      You would have been far better to not send it to them and instead send to the likes of Ed, the bfd, the platform and other truth loving folk who can then spread it far and wide.

      • IAASB, “hook line and sinker” IAASB if you have the courage to report on breaking news you are probably going to get things wrong now and then when the story evolves, others like cowards spend hours researching a topic so they don’t get accused of misinformation but retrain their virginal facts status,
        Please relay my most egregious fake news story.
        FFS ,IAASB I don’t know ED any more than I do a stranger walking down the road,WTF? .
        I do have enlightening information I would absolutely pass on to ED if I could be sure that is where it was going
        ED,,,,,absolutely no insult to you or YSB just the facts as I see them

                      Remember that time you thought the healthcare system was supposed to help but instead you had to buy your lovely wife a hip. Classic gag you fell for there.

      • So many questions?, the details?, and on whatever this issue, it seems some patience is required.
        Would this bit of info, elicit more information?
        At this stage it is more like whether to trust Ed or not?
        I figure Ed, as well as Rev120 will be looking more behind the scenes to see what further match ups, other avenues, for sources to confirm.
        Nor do we know what game is being played, or the possibilities.

        So it is with independent individualist to centre to right-wingers, as to often not “agree to disagree” and await for more info.
        So it becomes easy for the authorities to pick us off, as their is no cohesion.
        The game is to keep us split up, divide & rule.
        We should be able to control our own expectations, and if one knows more, then one way or the other bring in further knowledge & experience.

        It would seem that rol is picking up on:— like putting the blame on the compliant legal members, while letting the other more illegal ways, that use other means under the radar, maybe aided by corruption.
        Whether that becomes evidence, or just anecdotal, an over reach with a pattern, to be a keystone, to find a track of further info, or part of a enough rope to tangle critical people remains to be seen.

        Just like a terrier digging down a rabbit hole, how much dirt must it shift, and in the meantime, IF there is a rabbit, does it escape come out some where else.
        And how many times we have waited fruitlessly?
        We must be ready to bring down a ring of fire, IF the rabbit does pop up elsewhere.

        In the mean time, the whole system seems to be war on so many fronts, like health, maori: mandatory, vax, safety, efficacy? masks? etc..
        then waters, maori, councils, private,??? to RMA, hydro power, etc..
        then media, private & state, either maorized or Not, or
        Crime to colonizing through to poverty, culture, children, suppression, censored etc…
        Economy, rentals, house prices, inflation, Borrowings GDP taxes,etc.
        Education and so the subversion of continues on.
        And all in maddening overlaps,

        While others stoke the fires, shit stirring, in the name of being supposedly candid. …. Yeah right ….
        Another way of defeating the people, in keeping up the division to enhance the Controlling New Rule of Law,

  2. Good morning everyone, I am just wondering if there there are any boat builders out there? FFS it’s almost like the boat requirement for Noah these days and there looks no let up. The world is fucked, we do know that, and that was all in the story wasn’t it? The world was fucked, and God got cross/mad/pissed so he flooded the planet, I do have difficulty with the two animals of every description on board though, that would be a stretch, but the boat bit?? Not so much this climate change is getting unbelievable. I do wonder if the Maori of New Zealand still want to be in change of the water now???????

  3. Kea awakes to major rent rises.
    70% of landlords planning to raise rents this year – survey
    5:57pmSource: 1News

    Fewer landlords are planning to raise their rents in the coming year, according to a new survey of investors.
    Crockers Property Management has released its latest Investor Insight survey of 325 investors from around the country.

    It found the proportion of respondents who wanted to make the increases was now 70%.

    That’s a drop of seven percentage points from almost all previous surveys. It’s also the lowest level since June 2021, when the monthly survey first began.

    “The average rent increase intended to be sought is also at a record low for our survey at 5.7% from 6.3% in March,” economist Tony Alexander noted in the report.

    https://www.1news.co.nz/2022/07/28/fewer-landlords-planning-to-raise-rents-this-year-survey/?fbclid=IwAR33XyCt_BMHaXkWZ4LX1erwJD02DkQxL_KW38xJl37j2pRC8t8DhtcxkAA

    As ever, the biggest concerns of residential property investors are the new government regulations favouring tenants and loss of ability to deduct interest payments from rental income.”

    • Mate of mine is a landlord and here is his take. House worth $1.5, rent approx $42 pa. After mort, rates, insurance and maintenance, he doesn’t come out with much. Thanks Kris, you halfwit!
      So he’s decided to sell and put the money into something safe-ish like the Sparks and Trustpowers etc of the world at say a 4% yield. This gives him $60k pa without mess or fuss. I would do the same in his position.
      The first home buyer of this property is now going to pay at say 5% interest only, approx $75k plus insurance rates etc. previously the FHB would be renting at $42k pa.
      A bit of a mess FJA.

  4. In what could be a landmark prosecution, a Taupō man is believed to be the first person ever charged with sabotage in New Zealand – a historic offence which was originally passed into law to prevent foreign interference on our shores during World War II.

    But a High Court judge has ordered the details of the alleged offending must be kept secret, barring media from reporting what led to authorities laying the charge.
    Graham Philip, an IT professional and anti-vaccination campaigner, was charged with seven counts of wilful damage in December. He has been held in prison on remand since.

    In May, the charges were upgraded by the Crown to seven of sabotage. Philip has pleaded not guilty to all. The alleged offending relates to New Zealand infrastructure.

    Sabotage is legally defined in the Crimes Act as any activity which impairs or impedes the operation of “any ship, vehicle, aircraft, arms, munitions, equipment, machinery, apparatus, or atomic or nuclear plant” on New Zealand shores.

    A person can also be charged with sabotage if the person “damages or destroys any property which is necessary to keep intact for the safety or health of the public.”
    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/taupo-man-graham-philip-charged-with-sabotage-believed-to-be-first-in-new-zealand-history/ZHOBLOZT5JG5HI4UGXGUQUUHJ4/

    Lawyer lays complaint with Prison Inspectorate

    Lawyer Matthew Hague, who is representing Philip, also believes this is the first time an individual has been charged with sabotage since the introduction of the Crimes Act in 1961.

    His client is currently held on remand at Spring Hill Prison. An unsuccessful bail hearing was heard in the High Court at Hamilton last month.

    Initial indications from the court suggest Philip will have his trial heard in late 2023, meaning he would have spent almost two years in prison before having his case heard. That time frame is not unusual in the justice system currently, but Hague has concerns with Philip’s ongoing detention in the absence of a conviction.

    “It’s very concerning, first of all, that he’s held in custody for that length of time without receiving a trial, and secondly, the conditions of which he’s being held, especially the challenges with communication.”

    Hague says Philip has not seen his wife since December, either in person or via teleconference, “as is his right”. Pre-arranged calls have been stymied on multiple occasions, Philip’s wife has claimed.

    • The young woman in the opening video is a clear example of why children should be seen and not heard.
      Her gobbing off with no respect for any other opinion is in direct contrast to the young man, the focus of the article, who while disagreeing with some of his ‘youth MPs’ comments, nevertheless stayed around to listen to them. Different to the pre-planned walkout by many others.

  5. Prof. Richard Ennos interviewed by Mark Steyn on excess deaths in Scotland.

    Shocking but hardly news to most of us on here by now. The situation in Scotland is almost certain to be the same here in New Zealand, the government instituting policies that kill you!

    Interview starts at minute 12:00 but the whole show is well worth watching. The first bit is about the paki rapists in Oldham, Telford and Rotherham and elsewhere. Mark is not inclined to take prisoners.

  7. The wish-list of a Western totalitarian State.
    Fear.
    Keep the people fearful, but sell your policies that are designed to “protect” the people. (This will appeal to the non-working young, the elderly, the ill, the beneficiaries, the State employees, Karen-esk women, etc.)

    After COVID and Climate Change, the next stage will be to discourage people from having children while at the same time, passing laws to limit efficient food production. (Hello Holland!)

    Food production can be limited with reference to “reducing greenhouse gasses”.
    Later, a disease strain that threatens food production will mysteriously appear. The State will stamp it out but then introduce new laws prohibiting the use of farmer’s own seeds (because of “the risk of disease’). Farmers will only be able to purchase self-sterile seeds from major seed companies. The holding of “legacy seeds” (like your father’s runner beans) will be made illegal. Imagine if the gangs got into the seed and fertilizer supply business!

    All this is based on the premise that a Big State does not want its people to be independent, united, or capable of critical thought. Wrongthink will be severely punished. Society will be atomized into groups that dislike each other and refuse to unite and cooperate.

    Could this happen in a paradise like New Zealand?

      • Politicians will be able to afford to purchase meat milk cheeses etc. As will all the globalists who are wealthy, it must gaul them to see people like pop stars/movie stars who are wealthy as hell, who will also be able to afford these things also. The rest of us will starve. No communistic country has ever been successful. In the past Russia only relented from their communistic ideals due to the fact the countries were bankrupt states and Russia under Gorbachov wouldn’t financially support them any longer as Russia was not in a position to do so. It took many years for them to stop this ghastly regime of communistic bloc countries so WTF are they all doing now? Interesting that Schwab and co are Germans/Austrians etc. Fuckers. FJA and her pathetic communistic agenda. Why keep retrying something that has never worked before? It was tried for many many years.

    • For some reason I figure that WEF can believe in sharing food too, or is it recycling the food.
      So why have food, as why have private vehicles?

      …. “More sharing can reduce ownership of idle equipment and thus material usage,” the group argued, pointing to statistics that show the average vehicle in England is driven “just 4% of the time.”

      Vehicle sharing initiatives like “Getaround” and “BlueSG” have become increasingly popular around the world and are key in reducing the number of cars and electronics needed globally, the forum argued. …

  8. The World Health Organization published recommendations regarding the MonkeyPox “Global Emergency” today, and in doing so, they revealed that this “virus” actually only risks a very small portion of the world’s population: men having sex with other men. WHO Director-general Tedros Adhanom then called for global censorship on any “disinformation” that does not follow the WHO approved propaganda, just as they did with COVID-19. So there you have it. Don’t let history repeat itself, because we know now that those who researched the truth for themselves regarding COVID-19 (labeled as “misinformation”) and determined that it was not a major risk, and therefore stayed clear from the “vaccines” and other novel, new medicines that were quickly authorized for “emergency use,” are the ones who are still alive today and still have their hearts and brains in tact.

    The Greens, National, ACT, and an ex-Reserve Bank chairman are all on the same side – calling for an inquiry into the economic response to COVID-19.

    To keep Kiwis working, the COVID cash floodgates opened for the wage subsidy and business support. Meanwhile, to keep Kiwis spending and borrowing, the Reserve Bank slashed interest rates and pumped out cash.

    “While they started out with the right intentions and probably the right policies they didn’t think far enough ahead as to what their actions would do to inflation,” Arthur Grimes, a former Reserve Bank chairman, told Newshub on Thursday.

    To get a sense of the seismic amount of stimulus, here it is with all the zeros: $58,400,000,000 from the COVID Response and Recovery Fund, and the Reserve Bank essentially printed $54,000,000,000.

  13. We are ear bashed on a daily basis about the crises in our hospitals along with the usual shit & untruths about vaccine & boosters. I accept that they are short staffed due to forced resignations, flu & covid but each day, just to jog our memories, our local issue of Pravda keeps us up to date with beds occupied by covid admissions.

    Wairarapa Hospital has a total of 89 beds. It seems that over the past week covid cases have occupied between 11 & 15 beds each day. I doubt that any elective surgery has taken place within living memory, certainly not for the past two years so who is occupying the beds yet don’t feature as a subsection on the daily propaganda sheet?

    Could it be those dead & dying from the vaccine?

    • Naaska, when I was out in the motor creating holes in the Ozone Layer at 2.00pm the news on the radio claimed there were 55,796 people with the Chooff in New Zealand. This is the last 7 day total.

      If that is the case it is only just slightly over 1% of the population that the Government claims to have the Chooff.

      I bet you a dollar to a knobble of goat shit that prior to the Chooff coming along in 2020 there would have been at least 1% of the population with the common flu on any given 7 day rolling period throughout the country.

      So why did they not make a fuss of the common flu then and make so much fuss today over COVID?

      You and I know it is control, redistribution of wealth to the Maori elite through various Trusts which administer COVID injections, rummaging around in peoples nasal passages and straight fear mongering.

      The cost of the recent COVID Relief Packages to this country is just plain criminal. Quite frankly I can’t wait until the next election when Ardern, the Fat Fairy and Labour are held to account.

      While on the subject of the Fat Fairy, has their ever been a Minister of Sport in any country who is so obese, overweight, so unfit and so miss-matched in this portfolio?

    Cardiologist fears patients could die on surgery wait lists as hospitals faces surge of winter illness

    A cardiologist at Wellington Hospital fears patients could die on waiting lists as surgeries are delayed.

    Brain Tumour Support NZ said hundreds were experiencing delays accessing surgery and scans, with some unable to even set up appointments.

    “People aren’t actually getting answers from their doctors and can’t even contact the neurosurgeon,” chairman Chris Tse said.

    “We have a lot of patients who are on active surveillance and they are meant to have regular MRI scans and if they are being delayed there is a risk that their treatment will be delayed,” Tse said.

  15. How often do we read comments on this forum that go “I’m a landlord & I perform a public service”, “If it weren’t for me my tenants would be living on the street”, ” My tenants are grateful they have a warm dry home”? Blah & bullshit!

    How about…….”I’m a landlord & I can’t even provide a stable floor for the fucking fridge to stand on” or “water pipe leaking……what pipe?”

    From Stuff:

    …….” On January 11, the tenants issued the landlord with a 14-day notice to fix issues.

    “We have had to move the fridge into the middle of the room because it had begun to sink into the floor,” they wrote.

    “It sunk so far into the floor it would no longer open properly and we were nervous it would fall through the floor and house foundations.”

    Typical Kiwi landlord. Hands out for the inflated rent & screw the tenant.

          • It’s a documented fact dickhead. Fuck they made a movie about it dimwit. The global financial crisis was caused by housing. Nobody says otherwise. In the USA alone over 8 million people lost their homes.

            The world economy never recovered. It’s been kept going by even more money printing.

            • What ever you beleive will be your truth.
              Havn’t noticed an oversupply of houses. Have noticed an over supply of benefit money and arts money, and money for new cars etc etc.and so on. Using housing as a truth is just bullshit.

            • Dodgy/ risky mortage market, It works different in usa to here tho.
              It was the straw that broke the camels back and too many “too big to fail” banks/investment firms engaged in the scummy behaviour leading to massive bail outs and endless money printing.
              High oil price also played its part to help push the economy over a cliff and exposing the massive rort… kinda dejavu now aint it.

            • It was the ninja lending to anyone who could pass a breath test and then the packaging of the mortgages into cdo’s many with aaa ratings that was the trigger for the collapse. Essentially fraud covered up with more fraud.
              Once the cdo market collapsed the so called loans market (loans to small businesses) quickly followed. Many of these loans were ninja type loans and also packaged as supposedly risk free clo’s.
              I see similarities to the vax roll out fraudulent activities by the big players all getting off scott free.

            • Yes, US banks such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac lent buyers mortgages they couldn’t pay when the interest rate rose.

              Charles Payne, US economist yesterday said $500k US homes have lost $100k off their value in the last month. Mortgage rates have risen so recent buyers are paying for homes worth much less than recently bought for.

              • It’s happening here right now WG & the full effects are a bit down the road still. I don’t know much about the Auckland market or the real estate preferences of the super rich but I’ll guarantee you that anyone who has bought an average house in the Wairarapa during the past six to nine months on a 10% deposit is now technically insolvent.

    On March 25 NZME Radio published statements about Gayford during the KICK Fresh Music Friday podcast and on their social pages.

    A statement from Gayford on Friday afternoon said the comments were “based on rumours about Mr Gayford that are baseless lies”.

    It also added NZME Radio had accepted “he has never been the subject of criminal charges and is not now the subject of criminal charges in any court in New Zealand”.

    • And in today’s lesson on politics, reality & what insurance really means:

      ……”What’s multi-media liability?

      This happens when your business or employees publish content online that may leave you exposed to accusations of libel, slander, defamation, plagiarism and infringements of copyright or privacy. These accusations can be costly and have a lasting reputational damage. “……

      https://www.nzi.co.nz/en/what-we-cover/cyber-cover/malware/Multi-media-liability.html

      As in most insurance policies those insured sign away their rights to defend any civil claims. So when the writ arrives the insurance company look at what it involves & their legal/actuarial minds figure out whether it’s better to defend in court or make a payout & cut their losses. Note that truth is secondary to cost.

      Justice is a lottery & they’ll usually settle for a reduced payout settled out of court. Naturally the insured has to apologise & grovel or the insurance company walks.

      Read what you will into the apology & settlement.

  17. Germany is stumbling towards an uncertain future

    The economic situation in Germany does not look good, its defence capacity must be rebuilt after decades of neglect, and there are signs of fragmentation and polarisation in the political system

    Opinion: It is summer in Germany, and traditionally that is not good news. Or rather, it is not a good time for news.

    When non-stories suddenly dominate the front pages in the UK, they call it ‘the silly season’. The German equivalent is ‘the summer hole’, which is an apt term for the hot issue of this year: a party song called Layla.

    https://www.newsroom.co.nz/germany-is-stumbling-towards-an-uncertain-future?utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Facebook&fbclid=IwAR3fdRrGqXf0Ydhg24zrq91On1LOnPDF9FSmODpBFDQPr6XAps1-AyN2OZA#Echobox=1658863466

    This was a triple whammy for Germany. Imports of energy became more expensive, even more so when they are priced in dollars. The Germans were also forced to pay higher import prices and receive less for their exports as a result, which negatively affected their terms of trade. The result is that Germany just recorded its first trade deficit in more than three decades.

  18. The preacher, in his Sunday sermon, used “Forgive Your Enemies” as his subject.
    After a long sermon, he asked how many were willing to forgive their enemies. About half held up their hands.
    Not satisfied he harangued for another twenty minutes and repeated his question. This time he received a response of about 80 percent.
    Still unsatisfied, he lectured for another 15 minutes and repeated his question. With all thoughts now on Sunday dinner, all responded except one elderly lady in the rear.
    “Mrs. Jones, are you not willing to forgive your enemies?”
    “I don’t have any.”
    “Mrs. Jones, that is very unusual. How old are you?”
    “Ninety three.”
    “Mrs. Jones, please come down in front and tell the congregation how a person can live to be ninety-three, and not have an enemy in the world.”
    The little sweetheart of a lady tottered down the aisle, very slowly turned around and said: “It’s easy, I just outlived the bitches.”
