  1. “Rebel news banned from NZ” what a total communist shithole our Country has become and it’s fucking appalling that a news organization is not allowed to give the other side of the story.
    Any person who voted for this Cnut Ardern should hang their heads in shame but they won’t.

  2. Fauci quits. Now to hang him from the highest tree.

    Fauci Announces He’s Stepping Down as NIAID Director, Medical Adviser to Biden
    Fauci is resigning as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), chief of the NIAID Laboratory of Immunoregulation, and chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden.

    The moves will take effect in December, Fauci said.

    He indicated that he will leave the government, but not retire.

    “While I am moving on from my current positions, I am not retiring,” Fauci said. “After more than 50 years of government service, I plan to pursue the next phase of my career while I still have so much energy and passion for my field. I want to use what I have learned as NIAID Director to continue to advance science and public health and to inspire and mentor the next generation of scientific leaders as they help prepare the world to face future infectious disease threats.”

  3. Hopefully today is the day Sharma carpet bombs Cindy and half her caucus back to the stone age where they belong. After today he has nothing to lose and an opportunity to expose Labour for what they really are, Soviet style control freaks hell bent on destroying our country to satisfy their ideology. FJA.

  4. Watched the ladies from VFF last night.
    Their thrust now is rebuilding communities and I have to agree. Communities have been destroyed by Pokie machines, lotto, trusts of various kinds, The RMA and the idea that govt. and councils should rule everything.
    30 Years ago Tauranga had 10 lions clubs, 3 roundtable clubs, Jaycees and others like the 10,000 club.
    Lions now barely exist and the rest are all gone and along with them the camaraderie of people helping people.
    There is no sense of community anymore as councils ride rough shod over community in their mindless efforts to grow big buildings and fill the landscape with people and retirement villages.
    Those community groups were all volunteers doing so many things but the pokie machines, the lotto and some many Trusts from things like Trustpower and Trust Bank mean that people just ask and get given money without any doing. The councils stop any proactive community work such as building playgrounds and so on the we used to do.
    And is anyone’s life better for all this.
    I have my doubts as everything is more controlled and costs more.
    Our latest grand design is our waterfront. We had wharves and ferries and fishing boats and car parks there once. Now we have concrete steps that are useless and nothing that is of interest to the thousands of kids and dads who went to the wharves so the kids to fish. Indeed we have no wharf of any kind where that can happen anymore but we do have more boats the the Florida Keys. The answer according to council is to build big buildings to fill up the city with people. It will become a bigger slum soon enough just like Auckland. Worse in fact as the tourist boats cannot tie up downtown so none of their passengers make it to town.

    What has this to do with nappy changing?
    Well that all we seem to do these days wait for someone to tell us how they think we should live and when we should do this or that and just pay.

    That’s how I feel today when I can’t get my wife in for cancer treatment because the hospitals are understaffed and over run by immigrants to our town. Its like a railway station up the there, People working hard and doing all they can without sufficient resources while the bitch gives our money away to the Ukraine and the Islands.

    Time somehow she learnt that charity begins at home.

    • Thanks Viking.

      I believe this joining together, camaraderie, sharing, talking, at so many different levels, that brings a sanity in this world to many.
      Many were Men’s Groups, and then there were Woman’s Groups, that as you point out are now being “helicoptered control” by regulatory empire expansionist authoritarians of the establishment.

      They have even made it divisive, pitting woman against men, by having each other invade the other’s spaces.
      Sure it may seem to work, and good people endeavour to make it work, but seeds of the off putting ideology take over is there.

      The point I am making is that this whole push for “Men’s Mental Health”, funded by government is relentlessly pushing on.
      It is because within the systemic controlling authorities, that are already subverted by these ideologies.

      We all know that if some one does need the help mentally, then it is registered sort of registered.
      So the police need to know. Gun licence to be considered.
      The banks seem to sniff this out, so mortgages or overdrafts, to run a business, may be tightened or not be so readily available.
      Future job promotions put at risk.

      In those clubs, groups, Men can find people to talk to, to reason, grow in understanding, but these governments do not want people to meet up, talk on things unless it is under their “delphi technique” controls.
      I do not claim the “open” clubs etc., are perfect, but are ahead of the time, being an unwitting relief valve and heading off problems at the very beginning, so that actual mental health problems never arise.
      An essential oil, to keep the commonsense of a community.

      The government puts in place via lottery, pokie the people controls, to gain compliance.
      Now the government is pushing on all this Mental Health as being their answer.
      Sure the government are hopeless, but consider the destruction of communities, and isolating people, to bring them to have a hope in depending on the government on “govern-mental” “kindness//” terms

  5. Looks a lot like Russia hold the cards.

    As Germany looks to coal to reduce its dependence on Russian gas, the Rhine has become even more critical.

    With boats already unable to take on enough coal due to low water levels, energy giant Uniper has warned of output cuts at two of its plants that together provide four per cent of Germany’s coal-generated electricity..
    Drought-hit River Elbe reveals ‘hunger stones’ from 1616

    Severe drought has caused water levels of the river Elbe to drop, exposing centuries-old “hunger stones”.

    One stone now visible in Decin, where the Elbe flows from the Czech Republic into Germany, is carved with a warning from 1616 that reads: “If you see me, weep.”

    The stones, embedded into the banks to mark water levels during famines, have been exposed as drought continues to afflict Europe.

    Other stones, which were common in German settlements from the 16th to the 19th centuries, were inscribed with similarly macabre warnings of falling water levels. Water levels in the Rhine reached record lows on Monday.

      • Nah, couldn’t be.
        Here is a piece by one of our locals.

        “Hot Weather.—Many a man has mopped his brow during the summer months of 1884, declaring it was the hottest weather the world ever knew, which, of course, would not be true, for the extreme heat in the record of the past has not been approached during the late summer.

        In 627, the heat was so great in France and Germany, says the “London Standard”, that all springs dried up; water became so scarce that many people died of thirst.

        In 879, work in the field had to be given up; agricultural laborers persisting in their work were struck down in a few minutes, so powerful was the sun. In 993, the sun’s rays were so fierce that vegetation burned up as under the action of fire. In 1000, rivers ran dry under the protracted heat, the fish were left dry in heaps and putrefied in a few hours. Men and animals venturing in the sun in the summer of 1022 fell down dying.

        In 1303 and 1304, the Rhine, Loire and Seine ran dry. In 1615, the heat throughout Europe became excessive. Scotland suffered particularly in 1625 ; men and beasts died in scores. Meat could be cooked by merely exposing it to the sun.

        https://www.sunlive.co.nz/blogs/16905-1500-years-of-heatwaves-and-droughts-have-things-really-changed.html

        Its a very interesting read.

          To bring it closer to home

          Although I can’t currently-access my own copy, to give page numbers etc. in the (1964-published?) volume titled ‘ Thames the first 100 years’, it is mentioned that when Captain Cook encountered local Maori in Mercury Bay. an old chief told him that (my paraphrase) in his lifetime the sun had been so hot that even the Kauri in the deep bush had died-off as a result, while my own research on another matter indicates that in 1899-1900 there were at least two bush fires on the Coromandel Peninsula near Whangapoua, that caused considerable damage to both stands of Kauri timber and infrastructure.

          Similar events have occurred all over the Peninsula over the years, so it’s nothing new, but the gweens, knowing no different, believe that they are the first to have discovered the phenomenon.

  6. If you have been near a hopsital lately you will know that they are struggling everyday.
    Well apparently not according to their new bosses.

    Hospitals ordered to book surgery for thousands of waiting patients
    Hospitals have until the end of the month to book surgical slots for thousands of patients who have been waiting longer than a year.

    It is one of a series of directives that gives a first glimpse of what the Planned Care Taskforce is doing behind the scenes to try to fix the huge number of people waiting for surgery.

  8. Forest Gump died. He is standing in front of the Pearly Gates talking to St Peter about getting into Heaven.

    St Peter tells Forest there is a little formality to getting into Heaven, everyone has to take a test. This really upsets Forest who tells St Peter in his best “Forest Gump voice”, “Golly, St Peter, I didn’t study for no test!”.

    St Peter tells Forest to relax and take it easy as everyone passes the test!

    Forest says Okay and asks for the first question. St Peter asks Forest, “How many seconds are there in a year?”

    Forest gets visibly upset and says, “Gosh, St Peter, I don’t know?!”

    St Peter tells Forest that he can use his calculator if he wants to. Suddenly, Forest’s face brightens up and he tells St Peter that he knows the answer and it’s TWELVE seconds in a year! The second of January, the second of February, etc.

    St Peter tells Forest that isn’t the answer he wanted, but technically he can’t fault Forest for being wrong, because he is NOT wrong!

    St Peter then asks Forest question number two, “Forest, what days of the week start with the letter ‘T’? Again Forest is caught off guard cause he didn’t study for no test!

    Suddenly, again, Forest’s face brightens up and he tells St Peter that the two days of the week that start with the letter ‘T’ is are TODAY AND TOMORROW! Again, St Peter tells Forest that isn’t the answer he was looking for but again can’t fault Forest as being wrong.

    Now St Peter tells Forest here is the last question, “What is the name of God?”

    Forest gets really upset and says he just don’t know God’s name! St Peter says, “Come on Forest, think, it’s all over the Bible!”

    Forest is pondering for everything he’s worth, when suddenly he blurts out to St Peter, ‘I know the name of God!”

    St Peter asks Forest for the name of God.

    Forest tells him it is “ANDY”!

    St Peter is flummoxed! He asks Forest where did he get that name from?

    Forest says, “it is just like you said, it’s all over the Bible! You know, St Peter,

    “Andy walks with you.”

    “Andy talks with you”.

    FOREST GUMP GOT INTO HEAVEN!!

    ST PETER is still recovering!

    RUN FOREST, RUN!

    And that’s all I gots to say about that…

  9. What will the revolting lying stick insect surprise us with today.

    I look forward to her being handed her arse next year. Hopefully sooner when her house of cards comes crashing down.

    I respect the position of Prime Minister but not the person unworthy of holding the office.

  10. ANTI GOVERNMENT PROTEST IN WELLINGTON (LIVE)

    Courtesy of The Daily Examiner NZ

    No idea how long it will be live, but as the NZMSM is studiously-ignoring the whole ‘event’ posted FWIW.

    Hopefully others of the membership will also post as the day progresses.

    It’s going to be interesting to see what our MP’s do in response…

  12. Gaurav Sharma expelled from Labour caucus, Jacinda Ardern pivots to defend use of OIA

    abour’s rogue MP Dr Gaurav Sharma was expelled from Labour’s caucus at a meeting on Tuesday morning.

    He will now sit in Parliament as an independent MP. Sharma is still a member of the wider Labour Party, although it is now very likely he will be expelled from that too.

    Labour’s caucus has referred the matter to the Party’s governing council which will decide whether to expel him from the party entirely.

    If he is expelled from the Labour Party, he will no longer be eligible for selection as Labour’s candidate in his seat at the next election – although the chances of Labour selecting him again are already slim.

    “We offered mediation and a pathway back for him,” Ardern said.

    However, Sharma persisted and leaked a secretly recorded phone conversation saying his suspension had been “predetermined” by caucus, and alleging the prime minister had lied when she said his suspension was not predetermined at a secret meeting of Labour MPs the night before.

    • Agreed BGR.
      Though that statement is in February 2021

      Israelis on the Jim Jones “kool_aid”
      Actually Jim Jones baited his community with dry runs on the “kool-aid” until for the last time added the poison.
      mRNA vaxxes seem to have a cumulative effect that is even more difficult to ease back from as the number of jabbs, boosters, seasonal, seems to be the ongoing practice, for what does not work.

      Albert Einstein :— “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

      Israelis ignoring and over riding the protections & safeguards, that were in part set up to protect their “Choice” because a people were put into a powerless position in whatever medical research was deemed suitable in those times, for the good of many others.
      The past is forgotten? A part of ruthlessness? Right or Wrong. Principles Shift?

      Israel, a determined lemming, to get every one to jump.
      That seems to be the way of a ‘kind’ and caring government, so a little bit of cruelty is the de rigueur of the collective, as being ‘truly’ concerned for everyone’s well-being.

    • Some countries just do not care for their citizens, and prefer to put in place more controls.

      October 2020 …. “Ideally, you want an antiviral vaccine to do two things . . . first, reduce the likelihood you will get severely ill and go to the hospital, and two, prevent infection and therefore interrupt disease transmission.”
      .
      Yet the current phase III trials are not actually set up to prove either.
      None of the trials currently under way are designed to detect a reduction in any serious outcome such as hospital admissions, use of intensive care, or deaths.
      Nor are the vaccines being studied to determine whether they can interrupt transmission of the virus. [dead-end the virus] …..
      . — – – – – – – – – – – – –
      ……. OODA Observe, Orientate, Decide, Act. ….. [& do that again whatever the decision, a form of ongoing monitoring]
      …… this approach has not been followed with regards to the pandemic because while a lot of data has been gathered about morbidity and mortality there are unexplained inconsistencies that call all of this data into question and render it inadequate as a basis for right understanding of the pandemic …….

      https://52.netstorms.org/a-moral-duty/

      Still absolutely none of this is happening in New Zealand, as plenty of collateral damage, like how the New Zealand soldiers were lead in WW1
      Those lessons were learnt, as Freyburg become a NZ General and nor did the NZ government grant total control to the UK, so discussions, arguement s

  13. So Ardern thinks the issue with Dr Sharma is “concluded and resolved”. I think she will come to regret saying that.

    Unlike Ardern and most other MPs in Parliament, Dr Sharma has integrity and courage !!

  14. Why the fuck can’t the Godnutters get their shit in one sock & stop making it harder for those who want to scupper Ardern’s globalist sell outs. Some simple soul holding a placard reading ” Government selling us out to the UN agenda” was questioned by a TV1 reporter. His response:

    …….”When challenged on the message, the sign holder says they get their information from “being a spiritual person and feeling energy”.”…….

    https://www.1news.co.nz/2022/08/23/protest-winds-down-after-brian-tamaki-announces-political-party/

    May as well have stayed home in bed. This is how the MSM will belittle Tamaki’s motley group of naive half wits who think there’s a magic man in the sky. While they richly deserve mocking their idiocy will drive away anyone sane & split the vote of the right.

    We saw it with Colin Craig & the Conservatives & it’s happening again.

    • Having recently worked contract at a Government Ministry I can confirm that ‘Being Spiritual’ and ‘Feeling Energy’ is the way of the future!
      Every morning team meeting, every Senior Leadership meeting (whether via Zoom or in person) begins with a Maori prayer and a compulsory singalong.
      There is nothing quite like watching a roomful of Karens in their masks singing a little song in a language they clearly don’t understand, while a giant framed picture of You-know-Who beams down at them from the walls….

  15. Why were they showing the last protest? Shouldn’t they have explained the footage? Did I miss that?

    Some people would think that that was from today. Today was about how people were treated then I am sure.

    Was that misleading and by virtue of that, meaningless?

    Re-watched and found a belated acknowledgment that it wasn’t from today.
