  1. I saw this with many parallels to NZ.

    David Azerrad | Against the Black Pill | NatCon 3 Miami

    13 mins 34 secs : Oct 3, 2022
    …. address at the Miami National Conservatism Conference on September 11, 2022
    .
    Paraphrased & minimized, E&OE.
    Do you realize how anti -New Zealander New Zealand Aotearoa has become.
    Black . Brown Pilled,
    .
    Institutional High Ground controlled by elites, woke, anti American [anti-New Zealand], or lack the courage, to stand up to the Fanatics.
    .
    Who now publicly affirms:—
    1) — that diversity is not a strength; that meritocracy is?
    2) — Denounce bending the knee?
    3) — What institutions denounce the LBGT gender agenda and the damage done to families?
    .
    Elite and mainstream institutions loudly signal, they despise you & what you believe.
    Living in an oligarchy with 2 tiers of Justice.
    The law is fully applied on law-abiding, middle & working class.
    Justice has been weaponized, to hit hard, and then the category of who gets “wet bus tickets”.
    This shows systemically the institutions are corrupt, with many of those people,
    .
    Just 2 points:— Fattest country in the world
    —- largest consumers & producers of pornography.
    Lost control over 2 strongest appetites, food & sex.
    Restraint? Moderation?
    .
    Generation Z, Millennials, compare to X, & Boomers, in wokeness. …. like shouting down speakers, and even violence is legitimate.
    The most coddled, mentally unstable, historically ignorant, lowest testosterone, woke generation, coming to be at the helm.
    .
    The people on the right are largely led by losers, cowards, grifters, with just some exceptions.
    Not inspiring;– do not even realize they are routed by the left, surrounded; and now in a cauldron.
    Yet, Despair is Unwarranted; just as Unbounded Optimism is Equally Unwarranted.
    .
    We are not dead yet, and nor are they as powerful as they appear.
    We still have a base. Many people are still based in their life.
    Have the left fully conquered the public’s mind? as some things remain unpopular.
    .
    Have we really tried,
    “We have been losing for so long that we now think like losers.”
    Why the ecstatic enthusiasm for De Santis , when it should be normal for a Governor, the moves he makes should be “run of the mill”, but now considered revolutionary.
    You do not give up, after you cut taxes, spent more on the military, & deregulated African hair braiding.
    De Santis gives a glimpse of what is possible, & more so if he continues, ramps things up, and becomes an example for other Governors to follow.
    .
    Can we get a core of elected, who are “committed to de-fund, & humiliate those systematic institutions”.
    .
    When the Left send their Elites, that is they are sending incompetent diversity hires, overweight, ugly, mentally unstable, X dressing, low IQ people, who actually believe the garbage they read in the media.
    Some are ruthless proto-tyrants looking to crush us.
    .
    Consider the magnitudes of the screw ups, Afghanistan withdrawal, inflation, crime rate, covid, which will be doubling down on more diversity, at the expense of competence;– because of incompetence & ideology, at the base of fiscal & biological reality.
    .
    That is burning through their legitimacy, as the “Great Awokening” now laugh at “the study shows” or “the sign says” as the media is increasingly despised.
    We can see things, like the balls hanging in a bikini swim wear, or “fiery mostly peaceful protest”.
    It is very easy to access to other information, if we look.
    .
    The hand has been more than overplayed on ‘race’ & ‘sex’ the Moral High Ground, when decades ago there were some points.
    The church going blacks, worthy of support against controlling racists.
    The nice gay, worthy of supported against bigoted Christians.
    The left are now defending black criminals, against law abiding citizens.
    Now defending pedophiles “Minor Attracted Persons” against Parents.
    .
    How strong are many in this Elite, if pressure is put on them, would they really defend those woke points …..

    Link set to start for the last minute;—
    https://youtu.be/5KTOPuCfSTE?t=716
    1 min 30 sec.

    That last minute of his speech would work in the USA as the bottom line, there is “Choice” and for the moment, in NZ there is also much government control, legislation & money to keep systemic problems going.
    ACT with placing the sum of money, to the family to make educational Choices, would seem to be key for that last minute.

    Choice of Charter Schools, Educational Funds for Families to make the Choice.
    Criminals to have a Choice;– 3 Strikes, Build more jails, …. I do agree with David Seymour, that literacy & numeracy lessons, & tested to certain levels, for the prisoners who want to study. Their Choice if going for another Strike or to take the opportunity to straighten out.
    ,
    Next election, will we have some, a core, DemocracyNZ, or ACT;—- or even National, speak out? showing policies and the real Choices to awaken many others in NZ. 🙂

  2. I am shocked at how many people I know at the moment who are dying. It is really becoming scary and not many of them are dropping dead of heart attacks either, it seems to be cancers, new and coming back again, and some young Mums. FFFFFJA and all who took part in this pretend virus for $$$$$$$$$ that has affected all those who were made to or were frightened of being part of the 80,000 who our dear leader pretend lot to die we did not get jabbed or locked down. The biggest reset in the world. Of course they will take no responsibility. Once the people who defended her or said she saved so many are not saying anything now, stupid bastards the lot of them. Yep we suffered by not being part of society and second class citizens but at lease we know if we die that it was natural causes not the jab..

    • TAH ,If you are looking for an explanation of the old saying “damn lies and statistics” just read or listen to anything the Cnut Ardern and ‘bend me over the couch’ Robbo says and believe it’s factual.
      “We are in a better position now financially than we were before covid appeared” Robbo and Cnut face yesterday, HA,HA,HA,HA,HA,HE,HE,HE, LMFAO, it might feel that way when you’re jetting around the planet tripping the light fantastic and giving dictator like speeches at the UN but down here on planet earth things ain’t so fucking great.

  3. The latest Roy Morgan poll results are out and they don’t look good for Labour. The funny part is I can’t find anything about it on Pravda 1 or 3. Red radio haven’t mentioned it either. Do they think everyone is stupid? It would appear so which explains why they are in the 20s. Even 55 mil can’t change that.

  4. ‘Too many of us on Team Reality have forgotten those frightening months – and I don’t think I am exaggerating when I write that for those of who chose to remain unvaccinated the prospect of government coercion was frightening indeed. Too many of us have forgotten the prospect of being excluded from public life, from education or work or grocery shopping or even airplane travel. Too many of us have forgotten that our civil liberties came under real attack for the first time in generations.’

    Lest we forget.

    “Forgive and forget? Politicians. Well they are professional liars anyway.
    What about the journalistic elite class? The are supposed to bring the facts. They just push a narrative.
    What about the Health Care class. They didn’t mind having about 10% of their (dissident) colleagues sacked and creating the biggest group think in medical history. With all the evidence that the shots do not reduce transmission they still persist with the vaccination mandates. How the cult has penetrated health care is evident with the relentless masking-theatre everywhere. Which unvaccinated trusts a doctor nowadays?”

    • I will never forget or forgive. I will never trust the medical fraternity as I used to. I will never ever believe, trust or believe anything the MSM ever say or do again, I hold them in contempt.
      “‘It would be great if more politicians had the confidence to say “hey I’m not perfect I sometimes get it wrong”.’
      I will not vote for National or ACT because of their lack of actions over Covid and the protest.
      I hate that fucking bitch Ardern to the end of the world and back and actually wish her pain, suffering and every terrible thing that can happen to her as soon and continually for ever.
      I have never hated anyone in my life, before.
      Thank goodness I have such a wonderful wife to have shared those previous 2 years or so, we have both given up saying anything too much about it all, just look at each every time another death, cancer or continual sickness is recounted and shake our heads.
      I will continue to remember my brother who was proud of his compliant passport but read the information I sent him and who stated 4 days before he died that the vaccination had killed him.
      FJA with everything I possibly can from the bottom of my heart.

  5. Morning Troopers. This from Granny this morning:

    “”There were at least 25 cars we saw that had been affected by the one pothole. My son changed the tyre and we went off again – round the corner there were even more cars impacted by that one pothole.”

    There is no excuse for the state of the roads. But reading the above, wouldn’t you think that one of those people would have the gumption to walk back and put a sign on the side of the road warning of the pothole. Or go grab some road cones and set them up.

      My son came thru in the middle of that and he said that it was raining very heavy rain and you couldn’t see bugger all. The cops were there by that time with their flashing lights nd ll.

          Why do they call them potholes?
          By the 1820s in America, civil engineers and geologists were pondering geologic features in glaciers and naturally occurring gravel beds. Cylindrical cuts into river rock are also called potholes, sometimes kettle holes, and are due to erosion of the rock over eons of time. To fishermen, it can be a good area for angling.

  6. It is not a habit of mine to Link to other blog Sites, but on this occasion, it is worth it.

    ACT and Seymour have lost their vision, path, focus and way forward.

    Others apart from YSB are now starting to see it, even staunch ACT adherents.

    If National will not look after their traditional voter base and ACT have lost their path and know not where they are going, that leaves a lot of disaffected voters out there. Despite yesterdays poll showing Labour are sinking into the Mire, if National and ACT can not hold their traditional voter, there is every opportunity for Labour to hold power and that is a big worry.

      Also wheres this corpral punishment that got mentioned?

      All i get from reading that is we made a good choice to homeschool and we must encourage more to do so before their children are destroyed by the education system and these woke retards we call teachers.
      I also note they want it gone by… 2030, hmmm that pesky troublesome year thats shrouded with conspiracy.

    • The controlling Teacher’s Union are doing a last bit charge to get this legislated through while Labour is in power.
      Set in place, would mean a big control on Charter & private schools.
      .
      Mentioning corporal punishment, Hullo, who applied it at the time?, when every teacher had the Choice? like detentions which ran at the same time, stay in class during lunch time or after school?
      .
      Those woman teachers knew that many men teachers had their back. If they saw a kid was put outside the class room door, waiting like in Russian roulette, to which teacher passes by, and dishes out 6 of the best as usually the pupil giving pretty bad lip to the woman teacher.
      .
      A massive increase in Suspensions, which lays waste to teaching time of the child.
      That has never troubled or concerned those Unionist teachers.
      Those Unionist teachers never really cared about their pupils!

      The streaming is a funny business, but sort of close to the mark, and in the senior years in high school go onto subject choices anyway for the external exams to be sat.
      Now an alphabetical NCEA is just full of credits of whata-ever, so has wrecked the value &measurements in literacy & numeracy.

      A funny thing years ago, was I recall typing was for the lower stream, yet when computer’s and that keyboard, they were a massive jump ahead on Qwerty.

      The teachers are now expected to take more courses to “professionalize development” (indoctrinate) in themselves.
      Good teachers that have problems will most likely look for other jobs.
      In the meantime perverted, indoctrinated, teachers with a social, political degree find a reasonable well paid trough, & well protected by the Union.

      In following the enhanced sex health curriculum for younger children, it must be asked, Why would a good teacher teach that?
      It would seem that an increasing number of teachers gain a perverse enjoyment in teaching such.

      • It does make one wonder what they learn at teacher’s college. It used to be how to teach, not what to teach.
        Teachers should be accountable for the literacy of their pupils perhaps they should go through with the students, not just pass their rejects on and take no responsibility.

        Yes I know all children and their situations are different, but school should provide the one constant and hope.
        They seem to suck hope out of everything.

  8. Labour’s ideological stance on immigration is crippling this country. Not only are they not letting in workers, they’ve got a backlog of tens of thousands of tourist visas. FS they’re not even letting people in to spend money.

    Now local government is imploring them for help:

    Auckland Transport asks Government to ‘urgently’ review immigration settings as bus driver shortage bites

    Auckland Transport, Environment Canterbury, and Greater Wellington Regional Council say immigration settings need to be urgently reviewed to address the country’s bus driver shortage.

    The chairpersons of the three organisations have penned a joint letter to Transport and Immigration Minister Michael Wood.

    “As you will be aware, we continue to face chronic bus driver shortages across New Zealand, leading to multiple recurring service cancellations,” the trio said last month.

    “We believe that these shortages demonstrate an underlying gap in our New Zealand workforce, and therefore we must provide for overseas drivers to help meet our current and future demand.”

    The letter was proactively released by Wellington’s regional council.

    Wellington is currently about 100 drivers short, and it’s estimated at least 300 new drivers will be needed over the next 10 years to plug the current shortfall and meet growing patronage projections.

    One bus operator – NZ Bus – has lost 25 drivers over the course of four months, leaving it 60 drivers short as of September.

    A driver who spoke to the Herald on the condition of anonymity said: “It’s definitely the most stressful it’s ever been”.

    Auckland Transport is currently 471 drivers short from its full complement of 2297 drivers.

    Endless bus cancellations have infuriated commuters in both cities at a time when the Government is trying to reduce carbon emissions by encouraging mode shift.

    Wellington and Auckland councils have moved to top-up drivers pay to establish a base rate of $27 per hour.

    But without access to a larger bus driver labour pool, these good efforts will not allay the workforce shortage, the three organisations said.

    “Minister, we ask that you urgently review all means within our immigration settings to allow us to recruit the drivers that we need to meet demand and to deliver truly sustainable public transport services across New Zealand.”

    Wood told the Herald there were currently challenges recruiting bus drivers in many cities around New Zealand.

    This has been driven by a contracting system that forced operators to lower drivers’ pay and conditions in order to compete commercially, Wood said.

    “Our Government recognises that improving the conditions of drivers will make it easier to recruit and retain the workforce, allowing frequent and reliable bus services.”

    He said the Government has already moved ahead with reforms to the public transport operating model, as well as introducing Fair Pay Agreements, and has set aside $61 million in this year’s Budget to improve terms and conditions for drivers.

    Wood hinted the Government was also working on a new plan to address the nationwide shortage, saying “developments” would be confirmed in the next month.”

  9. Your a stone aged cannibal, sitting on your front porch when a Real Estate agent comes along.

    He offers you the deal of a lifetime.

    The deal, after due diligence, undertaken in traditional stone style, because everyone knows, traditional stone age, cannibal business and due diligence practices, will forever usurp and better anything any Colonial Oppressor has ever dreamed up, evolved or will have in the future, is accepted.

    So you sell off a whole pile of your front yard, you know, the one with the really decent view, to a whole pile of Colonial Oppressors that the Real Estate Agent put you in touch with..

    They give you some stinking filthy Capitalistic lucre for it.

    You are happy with the deal.

    Then, many, many years later, some non elected ugly mole who has been appointed to a position of power over the Minions by a formerly fat Maori with scribble all over her face and with the inability to speak either clearly or concisely decides, that despite you being happy with your property sale many, many years ago, you now aren’t.

    She decides that you again, will now own the waterfront property which you sold and gives it back to you and best of all, you don’t have to give the filthy lucre back to the Colonial Oppressor. You get to keep it. Yee Haa!.

  10. In case youwere wondering about Jacinda’s announcements of today.

    Treasury will open the Government’s books today revealing the state of its finances after one of the most difficult fiscal years in recent history.

    The publication of the end-of-year accounts also kicks off the budget process for 2023, which Finance Minister Grant Robertson has signalled as the beginning of a more restrained and “targeted” era of Government spending.

    The Government’s financial year begins in July and ends at the end of June – this year’s accounts, beginning in July 2021 and ending this June capture the Delta and Omicron Covid outbreaks, along with their costs.

    Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern foreshadowed the accounts might not be pretty for that reason. Speaking on Monday, Ardern said the accounts covered “the toughest period in our Covid response, including the responses to both Delta and Omicron”.

    “Without revealing the details, despite those challenges, we know our current position is strong. Our economy is now 5 per cent larger than before Covid.

    “Unemployment is considerably lower than it was at the comparable period after the global financial crisis, and we’ve managed to achieve this with a similar debt level to what National took on as a percentage of GDP during the GFC.”

    The accounts also capture the winding-up of the Covid-19 response and recovery fund.
    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/covid-bloodbath-expected-as-government-opens-books-today/ZUB72V4TJZ5P7VWNDD63GDTKTM/

    The accounts will be published at 1pm today. They are not the only big economic story of the day. The Reserve Bank will update the Official Cash Rate at 2pm, with another hike expected.

  11. For those of you who watch what you eat. Here’s the final word on nutrition and health. It’s a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting medical studies.
    1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.
    2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.
    3. The Japanese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans
    4. The Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.
    5. The Germans drink a lot of beers and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.
    CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you !

  12. CCP Opens Police Departments in the US; COVID-19 Vaccine Autopsy Reports Hidden From Public
    Crossroads

    JOSHUA PHILIPP

    The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is opening police departments outside of China, including in New York. These offices are allegedly meant to monitor Chinese citizens living abroad and are the latest chapter in operations from the regime to export its persecutions of dissidents.

  13. https://spectator.com.au/2022/10/vote-out-the-lockdown-thugs/

    “Lockdowns, pointed out Bhattacharya, were designed to protect the laptop class who kept their jobs, could work from home, usually in pretty comfortable homes not tiny flats. The plebs could continue to take risks and deliver food and what have you. It is precisely the sort of virtue-signalling but wrong-headed thinking you’d expect from inner-city elites. As Nassim Taleb forcefully once argued, you don’t get good decision-making outcomes from people who have no skin in the game. Our politicians, bureaucrats and public health clerisy had absolutely no skin in the game. Most of them got raises. The ‘we’re all in it together’ mantra is barf-inducing.”

  14. A South Auckland girl is crossing the road, when she gets hit by a vehicle.

    As she is lying on the ground, the driver rushes out of the car to see if she is alright.

    “I’m so sorry ! I just didn’t see ya. Are ya OK?” he blurts out.

    “Everything is just a blur, I can’t see a thing” she says, tearfully.

    Concerned, the man leans over the woman to test her eyesight. He asks, “How many fingers have I got up?”

    ” Oh my God NO!” she screams. “Don’t tell me I’m paralysed from the waist down as well.”

    Just to quietly note, that “others” at 4.5%, which I guess sort of covers the “Don’t knows” and perhaps a part will go to a new emerging Party in the next poll? and start increasing its profile. 🙂

    • It is her family that reported her missing.
      The family once bitten, should have been twice shy.
      If they had any genuine relief in finding her, will they make a major financial contribution to the police, or just take it for granted?

      The family should let her go.
      It has been their parenting, that bought her up to have no accountability to them.
      So why would she believe she should account to the police?

      At the age of 21, Why are the family trying to hang on to her?
      No mention of her possible instability

  16. A group with political and business links to New Zealand’s two major parties have had their verdicts confirmed in a trial over political donations in the High Court today – with former National MP Jami-Lee Ross being cleared.

    Ross was found not guilty in the case.

    The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) prosecution involved seven defendants, including Ross and New Zealand Order of Merit recipient Yikun Zhang.

    Meanwhile, Crown Law has sought leave to appeal Justice Pheroze Jagose’s judgment in the SFO’s prosecution of two men with links to the NZ First Foundation (NZFF).

    The Deputy-Solicitor General consented to a leave application being brought, and a notice was filed with the Court of Appeal last month.

    Justice Jagoze found the pair not guilty of all obtaining by deception charges for what the SFO alleged was a fraudulent scheme to conceal nearly $750,000 in NZ First donations.

  17. ‘Me Again’ just can’t keep her trap shut. In her latest podcast ,that no one listens too except Harry and their dogs, she said “Meghan Markle hits out at Austin Powers for ‘over-sexualised Asian women’ in new podcast”.

    FFS, I liked Austin Powers, it was a comedy which took the piss out of nearly everything. It used to be called humour. Something Me Again seems to have no comprehension of.

    If I was Harry I would take the dogs and run.

            My old workmate is a descendant of a great moonshine family the McRae’s, not surprisingly the whole lot of them are still raging alcoholics to this day, moonshine and other grog is part of their DNA.

  18. The beginnings of the cure to the real damaging potholes.
    It would take that sharp edge off the hole, that causes the major damage.
    The potholes become more rounded.
    .
    2016 ….. a machine called a “reclaimer” and pulverized the damaged asphalt and smoothed out the road’s exterior…..
    .
    ….. turn in their Priuses and go back to an SUV.” ….
    .
    At least their substandard roads are getting attention. …..

    https://www.wired.com/2016/07/cash-strapped-towns-un-paving-roads-cant-afford-fix/
    .
    Note how the pricing was so worthwhile back then. Will even be better now for the cash strapped local governments.
    Figure how it works out now!
    Notice that converting to metal/gravel roads have a new trick factors to make them more workable.
    .
    Drive to the conditions, keep left, particularly on the corners & the speed to be able to stop in half the distance that you can see.
    A properly maintained, regularly graded & well rolled, metal road is fun to drive on 🙂
    .
    For Odakyu-sen, a metal (NZ idiom) road, for crushed, broken down rock to road size stones for the final surface, is not too bad for a bike, and there are tips of what to do, and just as important what not to do & to master. 🙂
    South Island there is much more natural river gravel, and why their road foundations are usually pretty good.

      • They exist though not for too long after the grader has been through. Summer’s when the townie visitors in their little poofmobiles get all shaken up by corrugations when they venture into the real world aka rural NZ.

        But dust has its good points. As a truck driver I watched for clouds of dust in the distance as an indication of oncoming traffic.

    • That depends on the budget, and particularly on the knowledge of the engineers.
      For a number of years I drove through a District, and found the American engineer, over 10 years was insisting to have a compaction roller, follow up after the grader, had done its job.
      He also pushed that the grader should go through more often, before rutting developed too much, as he figure the time grading those roads was even quicker, and of course the roller.

      How ever he has moved on, the grader driver retired, and that knowledge is now gone.
      Increased % of town Councillors and more inexperienced bureaucratic clip board tick boxes department, so cut the roller as they wanted that money for heated swimming pools, an indoor stadium etc.. and grader reduction.

      The mantra for decades is that tarseal roads save money, so borrowing money the council sealed those roads, on the meme that they are much cheaper to maintain. That American engineer warned me that fallacy was being put into play, but difficult to argue against. After all, many of the country residents also wanted the sealed roads.

      The part I wanted was what they called Shape Correction, more depth of foundation, better drainage, and wider.
      Formulas for getting a share of government road money for that, was on condition that it had to be tarsealed with in a year or so, or pay the government monies back.

      The rates are being sheeted home now, plus the lower interest rates over the decades are going to back fire.
      Hired valued farms, seem to make it is ok to increase the rates, and in a number of areas, put some of the towns costs of water, sewerage onto the rural rate, as the the small town’s rate are already very high.
      But then farmers can see an out, cash up, a good price, & tip it into carbon forestry.

      Do not get me wrong, I like the tar-seal when it is reasonably maintained as much as any one else.
      Years ago when I was a kid, I saw a program about Argentina, and what I recognized was just how good they had things. Then it all turned to custard, & potholes.
      Sealed main street, but so unbelievable when they could not maintain it. Then the series of shots of the run down,
      Sure I know things change, economy, jobs changes, people move to the cities, etc..
      Great rail ways in South America, that for decades have never seen a train, but incredible engineering etc..
      Life changes .

      What is an asset, has to be weighed up in maintenance costs, like the ongoing heating, running costs, & maintenance of a pool.

      • Can you recall decades ago when travelling miles over gravel you’d come to short section of tarseal outside a well to do farm?

        It was always presumed to be the residence of an elected County Councillor.

        • Nasska..
          An old Maori guy at the freezing works pointed this fact out to me many years ago. The Napier-Taihape Road back then was sealed the 20 odd mile from Hastings to the front gateway of Tunanui Station at Sherenden. Tunanui was owned by Brigadier General Sir Andrew Russell.

          Re County Counsellors……My grandfather, a sheep farmer was an elected member of the HB Power Electric Board and the County Council. He told me that when he was on the board/council with a couple of Hastings orchardists, the orchardists would take an axe with them in the car when they went out on their rural inspections….He said that when they came across self sown fruit trees on the side of the road, they would stop and cut them
          down…can’t have the people eating free fruit.

    …. critical about the vaccination previously, but were forced to take it.
    Suddenly, three or four months after vaccination, they say, “Hey, the vaccine is actually good.
    I’m doing fine now and it was a good thing. It’s awesome.”
    There’s a sudden turnaround.
    Even if these people have symptoms following the vaccination.
    Even if they’re doing significantly worse than before the vaccination, there’s still this total about-face.
    They view the vaccination in a positive manner. That’s crazy.
    It’s as if a psychosis were injected along with it. ….

    Has the vaxx done something like toxoplasmosis, which is transmitted from the cat to the mouse, where the mouse becomes fearless, easier for the cat to catch.

  20. I see the PM is publicly endorsing an ‘independent’ for Auckland mayor, well supported by the miserable msm, who had to choose between airing the Roy Morgan poll or doing the mayoral plug. What a bunch they are.

    Is that even legal? Shouldn’t the government be objective rather than trying to drive outcomes in local elections?

  21. My first thought was great, my second thought was ffs.
    iStuff article.
    Police Admit undercover window washer traffic sting was inappropriate.

    No they weren’t there busting window washers, they were looking for cell phone users and red light runners while dressed as window washers.

    Did they keep the money they made?

    • They would have been better employed going undercover as window washers and/or janitors in the vaccine clinics in order to not the number of people that either dropped dead in the clinic, went into shock, or got whisked away in an Ambulance.

      I don’t agree with using a cell phone while driving but wouldn’t it be more important to catch those responsible for putting people into cardiac arrest or anaphylactic shock.

      And where are the local health departments?

      If you started a seafood restaurant chain, and people started complaining about getting food poisoning, how many people would need to complain before the health dept would force you to suspend trading pending investigation?

      5? 10? 20 would certainly do it.

      What if there was a rumour that the Vietnamese fish salad contained minced up fish which because of quality control accidentally contained jellyfish or puffer fish? Or perhaps the sauce contained kiwi fruit or peanuts sauce and you didn’t declare it on the menu.

      It would be all over the newspapers, TV and social media, and there would be photos of you being taken away for questioning and councils workers putting a chain around the doors.

      It happened on a grand scale hundreds of times that, perhaps thousands, including deaths, with the vaccines, and nothing.

      People are dying and being permanently maimed from the vaccines, and the police are posing as window washers. Who runs the police force? Mr Bean?

    • Hilarious, our scum pigs are brave to go undercover as window washers but not as meth buyers or a fence to buy/pedal ram raided stolen goods.
      Too fucking pathetic and pussy to want to meet real crims face to face so have to hide behind a scrubbing brush and a bucket secretly recording number plates.

  22. Finally a significant Court case is being bought against Remdesivir and it’s use in the US. I cannot remember where I read recently (maybe on here) that the deadly drug was bought into NZ by Pharmac without formal Medsafe approval, like normal drugs. So if that is correct, I really hope the US case succeeds. Well I hope it succeeds anyway.

    • I remember when my Doctor was foxing around trying to make me tale the jab, recoiling in my masked horror that my Doctor suggested that if I started to have to much trouble with Covid and breathing, that I would be put on to remdesivir.

      I think it only ever had Emergency Use Approval by the FDA,, and MedSafeNZ accepted it on the basis.

      In the UK, despite the funeral director O’Looney not testing positive, to Covid, one of his hospital Doctors wanted to administer remdesivir, and he denied them permission.
      Plus the increased prescribing of Midazolam, supposedly to relax you for intubating for oxygen. Another version of tying down the arms, so you can not lift your oxygen mask to speak out.

      In New Zealand, no blood test for antibodies to Covid, and in part I think no testing for the same in many hospitals in the USA.
      Imagine if they had an autopsy done, and no Spike body nucleotide protein or antibodies found in the body.
      No wonder it was for a long time that no autopsies were done on the supposed “ascertained” covid death.
      And still it seems there has to be a lot of pressure to have autopsies done with a full pathological report.

  23. CONCERNING LUXFLAKES LACK OF) RESPONSE TO DL’S UN ‘DISINFORMATION’ SPEECH (UPDATE)

    As the readership will be aware, the following was posted on Christoper Luxons’s FB page, a page BTW which displays, on it’s banner heading (and alongside the NZ National Party logo), the words ‘Taking New Zealand Forwards’.

    ‘Dear Mr Luxon; While this ‘screening’ announcement is extremely interesting, you seem to be indulging in another screening as well; that of screening your opposition to Jacinda Ardern’s recent UN Speech; The speech in which she declared war on what she termed she termed ‘Disinformation’, and which, translated, means all and anything SHE disagrees with. Does this mean that you actually SUPPORT what she says? Your COMPLETE AND TOTAL SILENCE would seem to indicate that that is in fact the case!! Prove that this is not so to the people of New Zealand. We’re waiting…

    Unsurprisingly luxflakes has NOT deigned to comment on my post, but has instead now posted a video with the heading text ‘Pretty heartbreaking news for a lot of people today as they wrestle with how they can possibly afford another interest rate rise’.

    This was my response:

    It’s even more ‘Heartbreaking Mr Luxon that you have chosen NOT to respond in any way to Jacinda Ardern’s September 23 UN speech in which she stated her intention to crack down on ‘FREE SPEECH’, from which silence we, as Kiwi’s, can only conclude that you actually AGREE with what she says. Shame on you! You had your chance, we won’t forget.

      So how long until that shit is the norm here? 2030 is the date for all things bad to be implemented but i suspect hurty feelz laws will happen well before then.

    • A definition of ‘free speech’ is “the power or right to express one’s opinions without censorship, restraint, or legal penalty.” Most of us on this blog would follow classical liberalism which is concerned with maximizing individual liberty while libertarianism adds emphasis on minimizing government.

      Yet ironically, to stay true to our convictions, we are forced into defending religious conservatives who are absolute control freaks who would were it possible compel us to live & think according to the dictates of their great imaginary Skyfairy. This compulsive desire to control everything is best illustrated by the imbeciles who follow Christianity, Islam & Judaism.

      The loopy left force some strange alliances.
