    The free advertising of today’s march ๐Ÿ™‚

    A call has been made on social media for people who oppose the anti-government sentiments to gather as a counter-protest, with some saying they would block motorway entrances to prevent any attempt by demonstrators to disrupt traffic.

    • Brilliant, I was thrilled to read your ‘dear haters (loyal supporters of adern,) we have so much more for you to be mad at.’ I so hope that this is a huge success, and that wank woke piece of shit supporter of hers. I desperately want his opposition to this march for freedom to be a pathetic non event. But my friends this will show the results of the next election I am sad to say. After the mask wearing of the masses with this new campaign of hers wear a mask to keep others safe shit. I think she will win again!!!!!!! All the spirits in the sky help us please, cause you think it is bad now….. well it won’t be good.

    • This is what is really frightening to the current status quo political parties.
      ๐Ÿšจ ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฟ New Umbrella Political Party Speaking Announcement ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฟ ๐Ÿšจ

      TFRC:— Why have you invited several Minor Parties together in one meeting?

      ๐Ÿšจ ๐Ÿšจ Brian:— โ€œI am attempting to unite the smaller minor parties together.
      At the last election, if most of the minor parties outside of the current government had united, they would have received roughly 7.4% of the party vote.
      That would have been enough to give them approx. 9 seats in Parliament.

      To this end, we are coordinating upcoming talks with both NZ First and the NZ Conservative party, and weโ€™ve already had some brief discussions with NZ Outdoors & Freedom party, ONE party, Democracy NZ and Vision New Zealand. We will get to the other parties soon too. It is time to talk unity across parties!โ€
      https://www.tfrc.org.nz/post/it-s-time-to-win-back-nz

      Can they pull this off, and “Keep it Simple”
      Can they Agree, and AGREE to DisAgree.
      To be disciplined, Bite their tongue, Hammer things out in Caucus, but work together for the most effect and for kiwis.
      Can they pull together to be the “Shock Politicians” of the next election?

      Even just a start, may bring about change, in the candidates selection, particularly in the National, to reseed it.
      Or it is simply “gone-burgher” and the sooner the better.

      Thanks to the ones who get to the Auckland Domain, and in particular please report, on what you make of this “Umbrella Announcement” ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฟ

      • Matt King, Democracy NZ is not going to join up with other small parties. Some support current policies of this government and Matt says they don’t gel with the principles of Democracy NZ.

        “To this end, we are coordinating upcoming talks with both NZ First and the NZ Conservative party, and weโ€™ve already had some brief discussions with NZ Outdoors & Freedom party, ONE party, Democracy NZ and Vision New Zealand.

        • Matt is right.
          The other small parties don’t stand a chance and they are such a diverse bunch I can’t see them ever agreeing on some matters.
          I think the New Cons and NZ First may lose many to Matt particularly when they see his line up for the next election.
          The key is for him to win his seat.
          I also think if National were smart they would not stand anyone against him.If they do they are nuts.

          • Agreed wise owl.
            if National were smart they would not stand anyone against him.If they do they are nuts.

            Now just how big is the “if”
            If “nuts”, it sure will again confirm that Luxon is just more Tweedle-dee-dum-bein, and must really be driven home to the rest of NZ!

            My take is that Luxon, along with Good fellow have tricks to tilt the play in the selection of candidates and the List.
            As Luxon at one part put the loss of National Party as not having enough diversity in their candidate line up, but it is being worked on. … hmmmm ,,,

            …. “I’m a big fan of diversity and inclusion, we need a lot more of it in the National Party as I’ve said many times before.” …
            https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2022/03/christopher-luxon-absolutely-a-feminist-wants-more-diversity-and-inclusion-in-national.html

            So will the inclusion of meritless diversity, and of what philosophy, & principles?

            โ€œI am confident the National Party will have a very diverse candidacy for 2023,โ€ Luxon said.
            https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/300582454/national-leader-chris-luxon-promises-more-diverse-range-of-candidates-for-2023

            I would like to think for any independents, small parties in the Northland electorate, to also stay out of the way or as the American system seems to infer, advise your supporters to vote Matt.

          • National will stand their own candidate as they are too arrogant to accept Matt as a legitimate rival. The silly thing is Matt will work with National so him winning his seat and bringing in his own MPs would be beneficial for National and our democracy.

              • Not wrong. The Early Settler is only interested in the Tribal Early Settler, from their own Tribe and any other interloper from Hawaiki or Canoe Person is not worth a knobble of goat shit.

                I am seeing that through my involvement in the Local Government Elections and Candidates which I am currently involved in. The infighting and dislike amongst Maori Candidates for other Maori Candidates who are not of the same IWI or Tribe is hilarious.

  4. I bet there is one Oriental, a Chinaman, who is absolutely quaking in his boots and asking President For Life, Xi to send him back to China, particularly somewhere remote where he never has to tangle with this Dragon again.

    • Most people who get busted for being a total tool tend to be more contrite and apologetic if they get a chance to come back. Not this dickhead, he’s thrown the rule book out the window and come back as an even more arrogant bell end than he was before which in itself takes a gargantuan effort. If there was a prize for wanker of the year he would be the clear winner despite coming from a party full of and led by absolute plonkers.

    • The worst part is the tyrannical dogma is still retained, as if there are no 2 brain cells to rub together.

      “Well and truly indoctrinated when they can’t see what has made them Blind” so become the ones that are the “Blind, Leading the Blind” while pointing to the vaxx. ๐Ÿ™

      Like an alcoholic, that is in charge of the Liquor Stores. Then mandates every one should drink up too, so it can be called “social drinking”, or a warped perception of “safety in numbers”.

      If only they would play Russian Roulette on their own, and stop pointing and holding a gun to other peoples heads with their finger on the trigger.
      We know who the police would “Normally” charge in this case.

    • I am constantly amazed at how really nasty these jabbed people are. I have lost friends whom I have had for years and years because I did not take the jab, and asked people NOT to send me information on how wonderful it all was, saving me from death etc etc. I told them rather nicely that I was doing my own research and had made up my mind that I would never take it, and to stop sending me stuff thank you. I could now say my research was far better than theirs and they can just fuck right off but won’t. In saying that, I am more than a little pleased when I find out jabbed with the full 4 jabs people are suffering from ill health these days

  5. Long but worth reading

    https://drjohnsblog.substack.com/p/explaining-involuntary-reductions

    “What if global politics are fitting a bunch of crises to what is happening anyway,to create a narrative to “explain” it to us, when it is all happening for reasons beyond the control of the politicians and their “backers”? Just askin’. I know it’s kind of far-fetched, but I’ve beenmulling it over, and i can even patch something like this together, myself. ”

    “Early treatment had been suppressed, and all of the eggs placed in the vaccine-salvation basket, and all concerns about the coronavirus vaccines had been censored. those concerns were that no effective vaccine had ever been made against a coronavirus, nor did humans naturally mount a reliable long-lasting immunity to coronaviruses and their mutant offspring. All animal models of vaccination in coronavirus research had seen greater deaths among the vaccinated animals, mostly when they got exposed to the actual virus later. the vaccines worked backwards, causing more deaths, just like what seems to now be happening with humans. one mechanism is vaccine-antibody-enhancement-of-viral-pathogenicity. “The vaccines help the virus”. We have seen public health England data for over a year, suggesting higher COVID infections and deaths in the vaccinated after 6 months, and increases in hospitalizations and deaths followed with a little lag. That’s everywhere from israel to New England. Australia is getting hit hard by that lately. Here is a recent article looking at one specific way the vaccines help the virus. https://palexander.substack.com/p/why-is-covid-virus-now-so-infectious

  7. Protesters tried taking it to Parliament but the vax supporters didn’t like that, now you’re trying to say Freedom protests are to annoy business and make money.

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2022/08/businesses-urge-brian-tamaki-led-freedom-and-rights-coalition-protest-to-steer-clear-of-newmarket.html
    “If they’ve got a problem with the government, take it to Wellington, go to the Beehive. Leave Newmarket out of it.”

    Mark Graham planned a counter-protest via Facebook. He said he had simply had enough of Tamaki.

    “He just comes across as a hypocritical, self-serving grifter, who has basically springboarded off other people’s misfortunes,” he said.

    “It seems like everything he does is designed to get more money.”

    Mark Graham:
    “We’ve been accused of trying to shut down Tamaki’s protest, which is not true,” he said. “We celebrate their right to free speech, but of course we’re enjoying our right to free speech by getting up there and calling them numpties.”

    Some were less supportive of Graham’s right to protest. He received multiple hateful messages from disapproving Facebook users.

    The Freedom and Rights Coalition told RNZ it was not fazed by the counter-protest.

        If the cops just packed up and left the guy would feel like an idiot and by 10pm tonight he would he would ve popping out to get a feed of maccas or kfc… but nope dumbarse cops make a huge deal over it and going to continue making a scene until the force the chap to commit suicide.

        The cops told residents evacuate due to a gas leak, then changed the narrative to a bomb threat although that just seems to be speculation due to the guys work history/access to ingredients to make a bang.
        From the sounds of it the guys to be evicted? and stated the only way hes leaving the house is in a body bag and NZs number 2 source of disinformation (nz poolice) thought its appropriate to make up stories to fill in the blanks and scare the sheep.

        If the guy dosent chill and exit the property safely by late tonight then my bets are on either the pigs raiding/shooting the guy or the guy gets pushed to breaking point and dies burning while burning the house down

  8. The track New Zealand follows with a “populist” leader.

    …. a state-sanctioned system of race-based extortion of wealth and opportunity under the guise of black empowerment, ushered in a new era of political cronyism, and gave rise to a new and truly avaricious economic elite, a multi-tentacled screen of parasites through which little national wealth percolates to the masses. …

    ….. the enablers of corruption: race-based economic empowerment policies, inappropriate state appointments, expensive social welfare programmes, land seizures, and a culture of impunity at all levels of state and elected office. …..

    Then it is said more competition will cure many of New Zealand’s ills, and that is why the New Zealand government is bound to enhance and encourage competition, with no responsibility or accountability, except where it can be paid for by government subsidy, that guides it principles for the control to Socialist Parties.

    Education is has been wrecked with lowering literacy and numeracy, and reaching deep into social indoctrination.
    Health, following the Social system into further controls, again with no targets, goals, that is pulling it apart.

    Will New Zealand be able to bring about a community, resilience and purpose, but be bought down by the subversion of “nation building” in the form of SDG “Sustainable Development Goals”?

    • We know of Rhodesia, once the bread basket of Africa.
      The changes in South Africa, from 1994.

      Have they followed those “Sustainable Development Goals” like how Sri Lanka scored so well with the ESG, Environment Social Governance that are also being pushed through many finance institutions, insurance, so corporations take it up and then feed down in controlling forms to smaller businesses enhanced by governmental diktats in laws, rules, regulations, code of practice, best practice, to exert total controls, on the general public.

      So is it UN-WEF? Socialist? Communist Goals or are we just splitting hairs when we see the outcome.

  10. Just read a comment BFD which says the guy had just done an informal survey with all his TV1/TV3 watching friends and family. He asked them what they thought of the Dutch Farmers protests and what they thought about Hunter Biden’s diary now being shown to be real and factual. He said NOT ONE of them were aware of either issue. Some said they were OK because they also watch the BBC!!
    I was at a lunch last weekend and spoke to a guy who had been to Holland in April with his wife to see their daughter and new grandchild. He was also unaware of the farmer protests.

  11. Whether you agree or disagree with the Yank’s Supreme Court decision overturning Roe vs Wade the chickens are coming home to roost as predicted. In recent Kansas state elections voters have rejected an anti-abortion ballot initiative.

    …….”By Wednesday morningโ€™s count, the ballot initiative that would have ultimately allowed lawmakers to strip abortion protections was losing by double digits. Abortion is protected under the Kansas state constitution for up to 22 weeks of pregnancy”…….

          I see nothing wrong with preventing murder of babies, trying to reduce suicide and slowing the industrialisation of harmfull drugs. (They cant get booze, cigis or vaping right so only a moron would believe theyll nail legalising drugs)

            IOW it doesn’t fucking matter whether I (add emotional organ music) “looooves killing babies”. The issue at stake is who owns a woman’s body. If the answer is “the state” or “God” or “all of us” or “society” then we have slipped back in time to 1833 before slavery was abolished!

    https://www.1news.co.nz/2022/08/05/family-of-man-killed-say-he-was-attacked-by-friends-dogs/

    Nevilleโ€™s son Te Ahu Thomson told 1News a friend had been staying with his father and claims the friend had about 19 dogs, some of which were aggressive.

    Te Ahu said his father had owned dogs all of his life and his two current dogs were kept in the house to keep them away from his friendโ€™s dogs.

    Thomsonโ€™s son said his fatherโ€™s death is a โ€œtragedyโ€ and he wants people to know he wasnโ€™t attacked by his own dogs.

    The 69-year-oldโ€™s daughter, Nataria Moore, said the friendโ€™s dogs had shown “terrible behaviour already”.

    “He was actually trying to get him out [the friend] because he didnโ€™t want those dogs around him.

    There are hopes Auckland Transport will take on community feedback as it considers a $30 million initiative to improve the safety of cyclists.
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2022/08/05/cycleway-barriers-draw-mixed-response-from-aucklanders/

    โ€œAuckland Transport needs to go back to the drawing board before spending $30m on a programme of pop up cycle ways across Auckland which have been criticised as being unsafe by cyclists, motorists, and police where they have been installed on Upper Harbour Drive.

    “The pop up cycle way separators are almost invisible to motorists meaning the slightest driving error can lead to a car hitting them, and likewise for cyclists who get caught out by one of them.”

    He said even police have raised serious safety questions about the installation of these cycle separators and the dangers they present to road users.

    “Wellington leaks like a sieve. We’ve got major problems with leaks, Wellington Water needs to invest in leak detection and leak repair urgently.”

    In the worst-case scenario, households will be restricted to two-minute showers. So how do residents of Wellington feel about it?

    “How are they going to measure that, trust us?” one asked.

  16. Hesitate to comment about this tragedy now ,but it is an important reminder that dogs are very dangerous animals.
    Emergency departments the cities rural GPs tell us that on e of the most common trauma they have to deal with is dog bites.
    Have spent a lot of time with dogs and have learned you can not trust any one of them. Given appropriate circumstances they are wired to revert to the wolf in them. They are pack animals.This includes the fox terrier in the babyโ€™s cot as well as thePit Bull. Every breed in between has the same wiring !
    Control is directly weighted to the ownerโ€™s ability to be the boss and dominate the animal.
    This is more difficult than it sounds.For example one well trained police dog was better at biting policemen than criminals!
    Dogs are never our friends but can be a good servant.

    My sympathy goes to this family!

    • They’re okay so long as the dog knows its place. It has to be below that of the family cat & that is the mistake people make. The dog can never be your equal as equality isn’t a concept that the dog recognises or knows. That fairness or wishy/washy equality is interpreted as a lack of leadership & in its absence the dog will fill the void. He/she will do a shocking job of it & that is when it all turns to custard.

      In matters canine let the way to handle women successfully be your guide. Gently but firmly. ๐Ÿ™‚

    On Coronet Peak in Queenstown, one visitor spotted a rolled campervan on his way down from the mountain.

    “As we were coming down, we saw the campervan blown off the side of the car park.

    In Southland, a second campervan blew over near Mossburn around 2pm on Friday police say, with the two occupants both unharmed.

    Around the same time, a truck rolled near the intersection of Hillas Road and Mossburn Five Rivers Road.
