  2. Faux tears from a self appointed puffed up piece of work and it’s mouthpiece. They (the Whanau Ora Commissioning Agency) have had many years to do something about the murder of Maori children in New Zealand for which they claim to be, oh so very concerned, but have done Jack-Shit about.

    “The Whanau Ora Commissioning Agency”. And by what authority do this bunch of useless gum beaters have to lord it and say they are or call themselves an Authority. They do not act on behalf of the Government or people of New Zealand and nor were they formed or authorised by the Government of New Zealand, they are just a private organisation of some Maori people..

    Definition of Commissioning:

    1. Order or authorize the production of (something).
    2. Bring (something newly produced) into working condition.

    If this organisation and Merepeka Raukawa-Tait were really keen about stopping the death and murders of Maori children in New Zealand then,

    Delcelia Witika would not be dead.
    Chris Kahui would not be dead.
    Kru Kahui would not be dead.
    Moko Rangitoheriri would not be dead.
    Mikara Reti would not be dead.
    Jermain Ngawhau would not be dead.

    And so it goes on and on for Maori children, almost on a weekly basis.

    But the question is for the bleeding hearts, the gum smackers and troughers like Merepeka Raukawa-Tait and the oh so concerned or should I say, not concerned IWI Chairs Forum, all who are part of the ponced up and fakely named Whanau Ora Commissioning Agency. When are you actually going to do something about the deaths, especially the defenceless children, nearly in every case carried out by “Our People”?

    The people of New Zealand are waiting.

    • Thank you for this interesting read AH. I am wondering In the google attachment you supplied is this all part of the Waipeirera Trust? All the information listed is under the trust? Maybe they did not have the money to check on this poor little soul as they had paid out too much for John Tamahere’s campaign for mayor????? Sadly anything with a Maori name is doomed from the start. Look at the list of Maori named organisations, from childrens care right through to roads, it’s all a bloody disaster.

      • Lizzie, just look at the highfaluting names these Maori Organiisations are;

        National Maori Authority
        Whanau Ora Commissioning Agency
        Federation of Maori Authorities
        Manukau Urban Maori Authority

        None of them have any authority over anything and none of them achieve any thing of importance or relevance to society that improves the lot of the country.

        The definition of “authority” is the power or right to make decisions, give orders and enforce obedience.

        None of these organisations have any legal right to do any of that, but the a title or name with the word “authority” gives these Maori organisations, within their small minds, perceived power.

        But you are right, the Troughmaster General, John Tamahere has fingers in many of these organisations.

    When?

    Never, because it is far, far, easier to blame all and everything that is wrong with ‘Maori’ on ‘White colonial oppression’ rather than to actually DO something.

    Despite never receiving any answers, I have been asking the same thing for years and additionally, why Maori MP’s and ‘Leaders’ are also doing nothing about this problem, but the answer is always that it is NOT Maori’s fault it’s the fault of the aforementioned ‘White colonial… etc. etc. etc. etc’ a statement to which has now been added ‘Besides which, you’re a PAKEHA (Emphasis ALWAYS added) and can have no idea about what it is to be Maori’.!!!

    it’s therefore very difficult NOT to believe that in fact ‘Maori’ themselves actually couldn’t care less about their children and that many actually glory in the ‘Jake the Muss’ image which NZ society has of them, because that gives them POWER and influence, and enables them to get what they want by threat of violence, a situation that has, at various times been described as being evidence that ‘Maori’ still retain the ‘Warrior Spirit’ of their ancestors (And no, because THAT is complex, I am not going there)

    To date, it actually seems to work, the money and ‘assistance’ is being given by the niave ‘Pakeha’ (A term BTW which encompasses all the rest of NZ; those who are NOT Maori) so why bother to change?

  5. https://environment.govt.nz/publications/review-of-climate-change-policies/4-policy-choices/4-2-2-assessment-of-current-carbon-tax-and-ngas/

    “Environmental impact
    New Zealand’s climate change policies can have both a direct and indirect impact on global environmental outcomes. Direct impacts will be very small. As New Zealand’s contribution to global emissions is 0.2%, the impact of any change to New Zealand’s emissions on the global climate is insignificant. The substantive environmental benefits of New Zealand’s climate change policies are more likely to relate to indirect effects, including encouraging other countries to take action to reduce emissions, creating knowledge on good policy design and demonstrating the feasibility of price-based measures. These “international influence” effects are very difficult to attribute.”

  6. Oh dear – imagine if the Good ol US of A mistook the Cook Straight Cable for a gas line.
    “Electricity operator Transpower has issued a grid emergency in the North Island on Friday morning after a power line carrying power from the South Island failed at one of the worst possible times.
    Transpower has asked electricity lines companies to save power by turning off ripple-controlled hot water systems, but if that did not reduce demand sufficiently there could be a risk of power cuts.”
    Plenty of sunshine down here and the snow on the hills looks great.
    Toughen up and don’t forget to charge your cars up before the power cuts.

  8. I met an older woman at a bar last night. She looked pretty good for a 60-year-old.
    In fact, she wasn’t too bad at all, and I found myself thinking she probably had a really hot daughter. We drank a couple of beers, and she asked if I’d ever had a Sportsman’s Double?
    ‘What’s that? I asked.
    ‘It’s a mother and daughter threesome,’ she said.
    As my mind began to embrace the idea, and I wondered what her daughter might look like, I said, ‘No, I haven’t.’
    We drank a bit more, then she said with a wink, ‘tonight’s your lucky night’.
    We went back to her place.
    We walked in.
    She put on the hall light and shouted upstairs:
    ‘Mom… you still awake?’

      Re: “Back country huts will be replaced with bespoke facilities that will be able to be used, and enjoyed, more often and by more locals and visitors,”

      Dollar to a donut said ‘bespoke’ huts will NOT be made from ‘Traditionally-felled’ trees and raupo etc. but will instead use ‘Pakeha’ technology and materials and be taken to the sites on ‘Pakeha-deigned’ conveyances, with the workers-concerned wearing ‘Pakeha’ clothing etc. etc. etc.

      The very things that even in their (mythical) ‘Golden age’ (ie, Pre-Pakaeha) Maori were unable to ‘invent’//////////////////////////////////

      And with absolutely EVERYTHING being paid for (naturally) with Pakeha money/s.

      It makes a bit of a mockery of the whole ‘Returning to our roots’ thing, doesn’t it?

    • It is a relentless march, to take-over and then screw every one, to clip the ticket.
      A hitch or 2 will happen in politics, but it will continue as the ‘ratshit’ points is used as leverage.

      11 May 2021 ….. “Neither the Prime Minister nor the Minister of Conservation have addressed the recommendations that propose the transfer of Public Conservation Land to Māori ownership – 34 per cent of all New Zealand land – however, they have moved quickly to halt the hui that DOC was undertaking,” National’s spokesperson for Conservation Jacqui Dean says.

      The DOC website has been updated to say ‘consultation is currently on hold until further notice’. ,,,,
      https://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/PA2105/S00084/doc-quietly-puts-iwi-land-consultation-on-hold.htm

      So it is on the back burner but iwi are nibbling away all the time, in Treaty settlements, and is probably one of the ways is getting 3Waters through, so that then the power of water flowing out of springs, trickles, streams, rivers will be under full Maori Authorities with in the Conservation Department estate.

    • A lot around the Lake are not that good these days and would be better if an upgraded version was in place. Once it was mainly the domain of hunters but these days its tourists..
      Given the behavoir of old time hunters I suspect that most tourists wouldn’t enjoy their nights there these days.

      Good times but not that PC today.
      A bit sad but life moves on.

  11. Information please from all you motorhome or caravan people on YSB.
    Mrs C and I are soon to take delivery of a caravan and are debating whether to join NZCMA. I seem to recall from past posts that they were nazi’s around vax passports etc. Can anyone advise what their response actually was and the pros and cons of joining said organisation. Thanks .

    • Question – Do you want to be able to park up at various (lots actually) sites around the Country and will you be crossing the strait.
      Yes, as far as we were concerned a pack of self righteous pricks – were the worst of Ardern’s vaccine followers all the older type well to do who are also NZMCA members as it felt like that a bit.
      We have a old Ford Trader van, use the camps some times but the price has gone up from $3 each per night to $6 each – no power or toilets but now I see thoughts of putting in e bike chargers for all the afore mentioned pricks.
      We debated whether to continue but because we want to go North Island again we decided to continue with the proviso I do not intend to pay for the next 3 months camp fees to make up for being banned last year.
      PS 1.
      You get to wave at all other members on the road
      PS 2
      Look up All Points Camping New Zealand – on Facebook – they are $35 per year and have a few discounts and advice of camping areas. Web Site allpointscampingnz.org Run by campers for campers, they cannot stand the NZMCA

      • I can concur with all you say HP. They are nothing but a bunch of fuckwits. Now they are bleating about the possibility of some being forced off the road because they haven’t got inbuilt toilets.
        I joined All Points Camping New Zealand.
        https://www.allpointscampingnz.org/
        Also belong to RSA. I am in the internet club. Just renewed my membership for $20.00
        https://www.rsa.org.nz/find-an-rsa/find-a-local-rsa/
        They have clubs all throughout the country and you can park in their car parks and partake in their cheap food and drink. Most RSA clubs are central in the towns.
        I have the following apps on my phone. Rankers Camping, Wiki camps,and Alltrails. This is good if you like hiking etc.
        I am in the process of planning a trip down to the west Coast. Going gold fossicking in some of the streams around Greymouth. I have all these “toys”, metal detector, pans, and sluice. You name it, by the time I get there I will have all I need to have a good time. There are some good sites near camping parks.

        • Mr Ed@1338

          A note of caution (Based-upon experience; no details) : If You’re going ‘fossiking’ make very sure that you have the necessary permits / authorisations or are on ‘reserved’ land, where such activities are permitted, as things can become VERY expensive if you are on someone’s leases and start removing ‘their’ gold.

          Thought you would want to know. Have fun.

    • They’re a pack of ancient wankers who think in the manner that they drive, ie slowly. They’re superficially friendly & tribal at core. A more parsimonious lot you would be hard pushed to find.

      And those are the good points. The entire organisation from the President down kissed the Mad Queen’s arse & ostracised everyone who wasn’t jabbed. Join at your peril.

      • And a pox on the mad parents who coached their children’s testimony. As for the members of the jury who took as Gospel the fantasies of pre schoolers such as:

        ……”fantastical revelations that included Ellis cooking kittens as well as digging up Jesus Christ, poking sticks up children’s bottoms and allowing a child to be run over and killed. “……

        This is the evidence they convicted on:

        Children started disclosing stories of bizarre abuse, including rituals involving gravesites, both human and animal sacrifices, urine, and feces. Allegations included:
        # Forcing one boy to kill another boy named Andrew in a Satanic ritual. (No boy was reported missing in town.)
        # Inserting items into the children’s body cavities.
        # Being forced to stand naked while female crèche workers danced around them. (No workers could recall any of these events.)
        # Being placed in ovens.
        # Being taken through tunnels, inside ceilings, across rooftops and through trapdoors.
        # Being suspended in cages from the ceiling.
        # Having lighted paper stuck into their anus.
        # Being hit by Ellis with the result that the child’s knee was bruised. (Ellis was in jail at the time the abuse allegedly happened).
        # Ellis engaging in sexual intercourse with a female staff member on the toilet floor while the children watched. (Ellis is gay.)

        As to trying to describe twelve adult men & women who could give credit to this crap & gibberish………words seldom fail me yet in this case nothing suffices to cover the degree of your stupidity & gullibility.

        • He was guilty of being gay. My god when you think of what our children are subjected to now!!!!!
          I was wondering what ACC ‘help’ the families got for the trauma supposedly experienced by the children.
          I certainly think that they are damaged goods now.

        • The ‘evidence’ that the late Peter Ellis was
          convicted on, as mentioned above by nasska. could well be the sort of ‘activities’ that happen at Labour party youth camps.

          As an aside, how Mr. Ellis was treated, was
          nothing short of disgraceful and is a stain on the ‘judicial’ system.

    • Thanks Ross12.
      That needs to be played in all hospitals, medical centres, Big Screen at Parliament on a loop until they get it.

      It may occasionally take in some parts a moment of time to build up some buffering but that could be because of my locality of computer.
      Easy to listen to, as steady & well paced.

      He does not pull his punches, and says it as it is.
      He covers a lot of the issues, and parallels very much the New Zealand Public Health which also relies on & quotes the Aussie Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA)

      He mentions what is being built in Aussie that will continue the production of newer vaxxes as if they are safe & efficacious.
      How systems are being put into place, to continue as if there never was or is a problem.

      This good Doctor is looking further how to gain the truth about the vaxxes,
      To make it officially known, so that the public health officials who practice “wilful blindness”, but told the facts, then they “can not hide behind plausible deniability.”

      Hear, hear, and thank you Doctor. 🙂
      Now we must do what we can to connect these dots to the public

      I have been looking for a transcript of that speech, but so far not lucky.
      This is a transcript from a podcast interview from an earlier time when Doctor Altmann could see the tangled mess.
      Although of some interest, it is so long, & it seems to where he was formulating on what more could he do.
      I have skimmed through,
      Best to read on from [00:43:35] but still it is not quite what I want.

      …. [01:06:37] I can tell you what history is going to show because everything is coming through now is not good news for these vaccines. Right.
      And more and more people are becoming aware of the damage that’s been cost and to allow people to continue to live in fear is just reprehensible.
      I cannot believe the people in who we put our faith and trust in are doing this. I just… It does my head in. ….

      https://drronehrlich.com/dr-phillip-altman-covid-misconceptions/

      That speech of his good, sort of key turning point, maybe an epiphany to others, or stymie them in those Public Health Authorities
      “We know, You know; and We Know You Know”, so “Make My Day” as “You will be Taken Out” one way or the other. So “Stop Continuing the Shit Evil Nonsense!”
      There will be soon be “NO Pretense”.

    • Saying things like that, makes one figure he would be ok with creating and using a dirty bomb.
      Then nor did he mind or is it others like the US-NATO pushing, when 100’s of thousands in the Donbass fled to Russia over the past decade to escape the shelling & bombings, and days before the Russian Invasion had opened massive barrages on Donetsk.

      The worst part the ruthless fighting over the past century has been very bloody, vindictive and revengeful.
      Greek Orthodox, Russian Orthodox, Jewry, Roman Catholic, which fought in their own ways, then over laid with Russian Communism, German Nazis, with a sweep back of Communism. Where treachery, betrayal abounded, and deep seated opportunistic revenge lurks.
      How does Democracy really work in a cauldron like that.
      Then the politics of old Soviet to new Russian Federation while powers of NATO & EU, the challenges of national sovereignty set against collectivism. All of that at different levels & stages.

      Let alone trying to get a handle on the international stage, in Oil, Minerals, Economics, Sanctions, Tariffs, US$ to Euro to BRICS Real, Rouble, Rupee, Remimbi,

      Treasure what have in New Zealand, and stop the divisiveness.

      • It may well be. “had” 🙂

        I think that is why the feelz of grief, a sort of an acknowledgement of a major change when QE2 died.
        Now not quite stuff Charlie & Willie, but the FJA, and the system she rode in on will only produce a “Hobson’s choice”.

        About maybe 50 years of positiveness, of building up; then particularly in the past 20 years of actual seeing NZ was in a bind, even though the seeds of that change could be argued to be earlier.

        The supposed change for good does not seem likely, but then life should be, never say never, and hope is only a small step, in making preparations, to make the most of what opportunities may arise & allowing for;— “the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry” 🙂

          • Hard to put the tipping point,
            As always, it was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

            Difficult times to live through the Depression years, then nigh on 6 years on a War footing. To be termed as the “Great Generation”, sort of self sacrificial?

            The seeds may have been more earlier, like the 1978 Supplementary Minimum Price, which was meant to be an underpinning price floor base, so no sudden drop in the season to farmers.
            How ever Muldoon kicked it up into top gear for the 1981 election for the 81-82 season & as I understand it, well beyond the wool board’s wishes even at those times.
            From then on those subsidies became very costly, and the meat industry was also caught up in it.
            It was one area over the meat subsidies, that Roger Douglas, really stiffed the farmers over, when he kept the Phosphate Commission considerable assets & funds.

            We must also recall that Europe heavily subsidized their agricultural production.
            Then Europe crashed our lamb market.
            In fact when the diversified lamb market crashed the figure in my mind @ $1200 per tonne for bone in lamb, was undercut by EU boned out beef @ $900 per tonne where NZ had been doing very well in the Iranian sheep market.
            Also the meat works knew in a way they were going to be bailed out by the government for meeting Union demands.

            However that fat hit the fan, in 1988 when Meat work Unions over did it, and Roger Douglas was able to quell government interference, and in part many farmers were prepared to ride it out.
            The meat workers returned to work, but there numbers of stock to be killed, were way down, evaporated. At the same time it was freed up so even though it was a small number, some new works opened up,streamlined, and had new terms of work for the unions with no ghosts.
            Pressure went on as some other works simply closed.

            The protests of the French nuclear testing 1976, seeded by Kirk, continued even when they went underground.
            Social cohesion, which ever way you put it, continued to be strained with the politics of the 1981 Springbox tour of NZ.
            Then the smugness of going onto “nuclear free” declaration in 1984, legislated in 1987.
            This then over flowed onto protesting the French the below ground nuclear tests.
            So why did we sanctimoniously pursue the French when they went underground.

            Did a lower level of the war footing continue?
            NZ has always seemed to love being in a war, even if we now forget about them.

            I post the war parts in particularly to note WW2 win, Malayan win, Korea War draw, Malaysia/Borneo win, as who would figure it would become more than a military loss in Vietnam to draw, then lost.
            This gives a context to the Vietnam involvement, and bar WW2, all of these were by volunteers.

            Military Service continued by referendum, that was for all males, then adjusted and reduced, and then stopped in 1972
            as OHMS Organisation to Halt Military Service was opposed, in line of the times.
            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compulsory_military_training_in_New_Zealand#Postwar

            Was that Vietnam loss more like a political loss? along with withdrawal from Vietnam, and OHMS success?
            At the same time the end of the Kirk/Rowling government, 72-75 the start of the Domestic Purposes Benefit, that superseded the Widow’s benefit.
            When in those 3 years NZ debt had rocketed from a massive credit to a massive debt level, plus a trend upwards of unemployment benefits.
            Though still very easy to find work, almost where ever one looked jobs with reasonable pay, if one put the time in.

            The change in education? the standards? the push to Universities, the dropping of apprentices, the transformation to social, political, ‘scientism’ to allow ideologies to rule even into curriculum’s, which over time, has its own flowering and now maturing into controls from an individuals world to a collectivization.
            What is it with NZ schools?

            https://nzhistory.govt.nz/culture/the-1980s/1989

            https://dehanz.net.au/entries/picot-reporttomorrows-schools/
            Who really runs and controls the schools?
            Who and what are the real agendas in that control of polytechs,& universities?

            Well no real answer, but there seems to be hint of where NZ has conceded to a direction, that has been relentless and kept small for over a century.
            I knew of a mixture of minor problems back 1970’s but sort of figured NZ could skirt around the worst, knowing that nothing is perfect, as perfection can be the enemy of the good, but when good, is good enough nigh on perfect? But some of those weeds may be knocked back, but have become deep rooted and so can bush up very quickly and strongly.

            A better man than me, would need to gather more, and make the point.
            But my mother would blame hellivison, taking the home work, the play, the games, the adventures, out of children, and it seemed life was fitted around it, even as a baby sitter.
            Hours of sleep being sacrificed, to later mornings awakenings.

            So why do I shudder when I see a pre-schooler seeming to be enamored with a small screen gadget? Yet Mum & Dad are more than ok with that.
            Is it what is coming up on the screen? or the total time on the screen? Is it contamination, so should be for adults? or is it all in moderation?

      • The skeletal communist Ardern, loves to have her
        equine features plastered over the tabloids and
        glossy hag ‘n’ fag magazines. I really think that to
        ensure NZ taxpayer dollars were……..er, well spent
        on giving Zelensky’s bum boys a few missiles and…
        um.. ‘training’ by NZ Defence force personnel, she should
        go to the front line in Ukraine, and see how things are
        doing over there.
