  1. The Colonialsit’s system is Racist, aaaarrrkkk, aaaarrrkk, squark!

    Yet another survey amongst Early Settlers, finds that the “state or systemic violence had impacted on their wellbeing” and “over 70 percent had experienced abuse or abuse of power from WINZ, the education system, the health system, the police, and the justice system, and over 80 percent had experienced racism from the same agencies.”

    Well, I have an easy solution to reduce all this racism, Police violence and abuse of power by WINZ.

    Get off your fat lazy arses, find a job, provide for your own families, contribute to society and then have no need in your life to be involved in these “nasty” agencies and people who make your life so miserable. You will be much happier and then have no need to take part in a survey which shows you are unhappy.

    And if you all think I don’t know what I am talking about, I see through the course of my work on a daily basis, the exact type of lazy, useless arseholes that do not bother to work, want the State to provide everything and then complain that they are mistreated by Plod, WINZ or the Colonial system, they so despise, but happily use to their benefit.

  2. Good morning everyone, I had a great idea from a friend the other day. STOP the dole for those under 50 (at least maybe 60) stop gifting money to Maori health treaty settlements etc. stop spending on girls to have babies on a whim to get more benefits make fathers responsible for them. DO NOT pay for parents to have children with time off work. If you cannot afford a baby do not have one. STOP sending money to the Ukraine or any other country that we the people do not deem necessary…. like some of the Pacific Islands. And that goes for national and act too, both of them with their woke crap. Lock up offenders including ram raiders, forget these cultural reports and the fact that they had a sad/bad background etc etc. Forget climate change and all that involves that cannot possibly be fixed with money no matter what the government says. Times are tough and it’s time we took harsh measures, to get this country back on track.
    And have a lovely day and be careful out there.

  3. Morning Troopers,
    These numbers are alarming. Why aren’t they front and centre? Why is it that if you’re on a benefit, but have no intention of working, i.e. you’re not looking for a job, then you are not considered unemployed? Robertson keeps banging on about “record low unemployment”, but it’s just smoke and mirrors.

    Benefit numbers six years on

    • Crazy stuff saggy, then couple it with the “homeless” and motel folk and its a national shame all created by a certain womans kindness.(crime and education her govt also contributed to the massive negative stats)
      Its a shit stain on our history that our country is going to bear the brunt off for many decades to come, aint no going back unless some tough love and sink or swim type response is implemented.

      Saggy if its not being attacked by opposition then highly likely they dont intend on any change, that or theyre just shit scared of any backlash… keeping their powder dry//

  4. WWII, Germans build a fake airbase, wooden buildings, wooden aircraft etc. as a decoy target.

    A few days after they complete it the RAF send a bomber and drop a single bomb on it, which failed to explode.

    When the Germans examined the bomb, it was made of wood…

    The Germans were not amused…

    • Out of curiosity does anyone know if any or how much maori/tribal land has been zoned as an sna etc?
      Or has bro land been exempt due to them not paying rates, ngai tahu for instance owns fair few farms so surely they have some sna land.

    • “Sites and Areas of Significance to Māori” = SASM

      So who pay for Councils to be looking into SASM which are on Private Property?

      Just what triggers a Council SASM? ?
      Some entity, supported by the District or Regional Council, with devious backing & enforcement by government legislation.
      Seems like, not liking your politics, or a de-colonialism aspect or that they consider you have an “unconscious bias”, based on a ancient scientism.

      The Maori Scientism will be taking care of SNA’s on Maori land.
      Plus all the water that flows from & into maori land.
      All to be worked in with those extra % representative special seats at the table per revised partnership tweety.

      While the SNA are based on Western Science, that is now stylized of “follow the money” “feelz good”, & “virtue signals” , for “the good of the community”.
      Not quite up to Tweety standards, because of the ‘money flow’, so the silent upgrade to SASM’

  6. Usual disengenuos crap from Labour.
    And the mandates still remain.

    Verrall confirmed that no government vaccination mandates remained in place and pushed back strongly when it was suggested that a requirement to have a Covid vaccination for some Te Whatu Ora positions equated to a mandate. “‘Mandate’ has always been a legal mandate run by the government. For years, prior to Covid, there have been requirements for health care workers to be vaccinated against Hepatitis B and other conditions,” she said.

  7. This is such music to my ears that I may just waste my vote in the coming election and vote NZ Loyal.

    I love the name, NZ Loyal, and the slogan “Loyal to You, Not to Them,” is brilliant in my opinion. Sadly she has left it way too late and as if we need another no hope, splittest, party no matter how well intentioned. This nation of brainwashed sheep will get the government they deserve.

  8. I’ve been thinking. I have wondered why there is so much stupidity in NZ. From inexplicable decisions by governments and bureaucracies to everyday general fuckery by average citizens. I recently had a young shop assistant ask me what $16.50 divided in 2 would be. ( the till was down and everything was being done manually.)

    Then it struck me, the one common denominator that ties all this stupidity together, regardless of race status or ability is – OUR EDUCATION SYSTEM!!!

    People that tend to succeed, either have had private college education, or they have left school early being more driven to learn and get ahead in their own way. The rest have been at the mercey of our Marxist public education system.

    Do I have proof of this? Yes!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SsflJeQbZNM
    Senate Matters of Urgency – COVID-19: Pandemic Response Inquiry

    The matter for urgency in this video, as proposed by and moved by Senator Ralph Babet was:
    “It’s been more than two years since some Labor MP’s called for a Royal Commission into Australia’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic. It’s been 16 months since Labor Senator Katy Gallagher backed a Royal Commission into Australia’s pandemic response. It’s been over a year since Prime Minister Anthony Albanese promised the Australian people a Royal Commission or a similar inquiry

  10. While driving to work this morning I was struck with a sudden revelation. I have decided I am going to vote for the party who promises to get rid of the truck loads of suntanned over weight early settlers who drive around putting out cones everywhere while doing everything they can to slow traffic down, normally for no particular reason. Once they lay out countless cones they then drive up and down even more slowly to piss everyone off. The worst part is they all look so fucking pious and appear to be suffering from some kind of deranged god complex as they cheerfully ruin my day and no doubt charge a poultice for wasting every ones time. Wankers, all of them.

    • Auckland is looking for a long term plan to use fewer red cones, & they have found the solution in rail.
      Should be very much to your liking Tarquin when you travel through on a choo choo. powered by Indonesian coal. 🙂

      Auckland is looking to in parts to only allow commuter traffic to flow for only 15 minutes in the hour.

      https://www.stuff.co.nz/motoring/300948556/auckland-rail-crossings-will-be-closed-45-mins-an-hour-during-peak-commute

      All in the name of ‘ealth & ‘afety’ & ‘”canoes”
      Even better when a plan as you may secretly know, is in the final stages to be announced about putting in canals, for the heavy traffic, & so long as you have a paddle, you can whack the water to your hearts content.

      • Simpleton1, Ah I see you missed Willie Jacksons brilliant idea a couple of weeks ago, ” we want to fix all NZs traffic problems by switching to left hand drive” he went on to say that the elderly need not fear the changeover as it would be rolled out slowly over the period of 12 months and be directly supervised by many Natives with truckloads of road cones , I like it, I like it , it sounds perfectly Labour in 2023.

    • I posted this the other day but recently I was yakking to a civil engineer on a Job site in the Central Hawkes Bay.

      The conversation got round to Traffic Management wankers. He told me, off the record but there was zero reason for him to bullshit, that they charged $1000/day for each vehicle, $6/day for each road cone & $5 each time they moved them.

      Small wonder nothing ever gets repaired. Every minor road job costs about $10K min for coning!

    • I’ve often said (i.e. bored Mrs Eurokiwi ad infinitum) that the whole purpose of road cones is to exert control over the population. They effectively stop people from getting wherever they are going on time and this is done on angoing basis with almost no rhyme or reason except to interrupt people’s lives and demonstrate that the state has control. Road cones are also used to ‘funnel’ people like sheep – which is another psychological control mechanism and has a lot in common with the practice of forcing people to queue up and scan their QR codes in order to buy a coffee.

  11. A fifteen year old Amish boy and his father were in a mall.

    They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move apart and then slide back together again.

    The boy asked, “What is this Father?”

    The father (never having seen an elevator) responded, “Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life, I don”t know what it is.”

    While the boy and his father were watching with amazement, a fat old lady in a wheel chair moved up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened, and the lady rolled between them into a small room.
    The walls closed, and the boy and his father watched the small numbers above the walls light up sequentially.
    They continued to watch until it reached the last number, and then the numbers began to light in the reverse order.
    Finally the walls opened up again and a gorgeous 24-year-old blond stepped out.

    The father, not taking his eyes off the young woman, said quietly to his son…
    “Go get your Mother.”

Does she have a nanny to get her off to school? She dear leader so desperately wanted a child to be photographed with then…….. nah not interested in her one little bit. Off showing the world what a useless piece of shit she is.

          • She has zero interest in the unholy spore of the cursed union. She has let this slip in some dripping wet woman’s magazine fluff piece. Apparently the little humunculus doesn’t even like her and there’s zero bond between them.

            Paracelsus (1493–1541). De natura rerum (1537) outlines his method for creating homunculi:

            That the sperm of a man be putrefied by itself in a sealed cucurbit for forty days with the highest degree of putrefaction in a horse’s womb [“venter equinus”, meaning “warm, fermenting horse dung”[1]], or at least so long that it comes to life and moves itself, and stirs, which is easily observed. After this time, it will look somewhat like a man, but transparent, without a body. If, after this, it be fed wisely with the Arcanum of human blood, and be nourished for up to forty weeks, and be kept in the even heat of the horse’s womb, a living human child grows therefrom, with all its members like another child, which is born of a woman, but much smaller.

  12. Heart attack hospitalizations at record level since pandemic

    The new figures for England show that more than 84,000 patients were admitted to hospital because of a heart attack in 2021/22 – a rise of more than 7,000 in a year.

    It follows warnings that heart deaths have risen by more than 500 a week since the first lockdown, with a fall in the numbers prescribed vital medication amid struggles to access GP care.

    • I suspect that two factors responsible would be:
      a) rising average age (older people tend to have more heart trouble) and
      b) the fall in the numbers prescribed vital medication / treatment due to government COVID policies

      This is ignoring any side effects of the mRNA treatments on heart function.

    • Part of the conclusion which if this is too technical;, just read that

      “The exceptionally warm global temperature in 2023 is part of a trend of warming since 2015 that is associated primarily with greater absorption of solar radiation in the earth-atmosphere system. This increase in absorbed solar radiation is driven by a slow decline in springtime snow extent, but primary by a reduction in reflection from the atmosphere driven by reduced cloudiness and to a lesser extent a reduction in atmospheric aerosol. Any increase in the greenhouse effect from increasing CO2 (which impacts the longwave radiation budget) is lost in the noise.”

  14. A comment (by Andy) stolen from BFD.

    ” Part of that woman’s legacy.
    The one who entered Politics to help children and families.
    It’s almost as though she wanted more people on welfare so they would vote for more welfare.
    Apologies if this has already been mentioned.

    The Government has released the latest benefit data. Here are the changes from June 2017 to June 2023.
    All working age benefits

    • Total working age 276,331 to 351,759, an increase of 27%
    • Maori 97,916 to 131,413, an increase of 34%
    • Under 25s 42,615 to 52,689, an increase of 24%
    • More than one year 72,558 to 92,814, an increase of 28%
    So in six years we have around 75,000 more working age NZers on welfare. Of concern is the increase of Under 25s and those on welfare for more than year because we know from social investment data that being on welfare early and for a long time has highly negative correlation with doing well later in life.
    The situation is even worse for those who are on jobseeker.

    • Jobseeker 118,776 to 173,130, an increase of 46%
    • Maori jobseeker 43,430 to 67,029, an increase of 54%
    • More than one year JS 51,299 to 70,365, an increase of 37%

    A huge 46% increase of people on what used to be called the dole. even higher for Maori New Zealanders, and despite low unemployment a 37% increase in those who have spent over a year on jobseeker. “

  15. Further to Komata’s post of 11.07am this morning, just thinking. Is Fish Boy going with the nation’s former, most beloved Leader to North America, or has the coming failed State of New Zealand hushed up his last years Drug Court Case at Whangarei District Court and his association with the Commancheros Gang, but this has not escaped the DEA’s access to Five Eyes and stopped Fish Boy’s trip to Harvard and North America with his beloved, betrothed and no doubt soon to be married too, Partner?

    Or is Fish Boy going to have to say home and look after the infant?

  16. Now here is a good idea.
    Do we think the canoe company will be able to do this?

    NEED A PLACE TO PULL OVER TO LET FASTER TRAFFIC PASS?
    These green reflectors will help you find a safe place.
    Often, we have trucks or other vehicles behind us as we tow our van and want them to overtake but there is no safe place for them to do so.
    At the Truck Friendly caravan road safety program we recommend communicating with other road users and working together with other vehicles, be they trucks, caravan, motorhomes, cars or motorbikes. Let’s all get to our destination safely, on time and less stressed.
    You may have noticed some green reflectors on guideposts beside the road on some highways. These indicate that there is a safe place to pull off the road coming up soon so you can indicate your intentions early and be prepared.
    Approximately 500 meters from a safe place to pull over you may see 3 x Green reflectors, 250 meters you may see 2 x Green reflectors and just at the safe place you may see 1 x Green reflectors.
    TO CLEAR UP CONFUSION: –
    1. They were started by road safety advocate and truck driver Rod Hannifey as an aide for truckdrivers to find a safe place to pull over if tired or to check the load etc.
    They are now in areas of Qld, NSW, South Australia from Eyre Pensula to the WA border and some in Victoria. I am unaware of any in other states at present. however, they are growing in number and there may be some I am not aware of.
    2. They indicate a place is coming up where a driver may be able to pull off the road safely to allow other vehicles to pass. It is not a passing lane but an area off the road to stop.
    3. Most are not maintained nor bitumen like the ones in the photo, but the location is selected due to the firmness of the ground and visibility etc. Some may have small roadside drop offs and longer grass due to not being regularly maintained. The one in my photo is on the ISIS Highway between Bundaberg and Childers in QLD and a rare bitumen one.
    4. They were originally blue reflectors; however, they were changed to GREEN to help avoid confusion with fire services. There are still some original blue reflectors out there that have not been changed, but all new ones should be green in all states.
    5. They were at one stage funded by the NHVR (hence the NHVR reference to heavy vehicle usage on any promotion) to advise heavy vehicle drivers that there is a pull over area coming up in case they needed a short rest or check the load etc. It is hard to pull up a heavy vehicle, so they provide some time to slow before pulling off the road.
    6. The brochure on the 3-2-1- Green Reflectors was given to me personally (Truck Friendly caravan road safety program) by a road safety officer with Qld Transport (TMR) to share with caravan users. The reason for this was to help assist and encourage slower vehicles (like caravans, RVs etc.) to pull over to let faster traffic pass and discourage risky behaviour and reduce anxiety, improving road safety.
    7. The only real publicity was funded by the NHVR on their web site and brochures and refer to Heavy Vehicles which they regulate.
    8. I have it in writing from QLD TMR that they are for use BY ALL ROAD USERS and I have previously contacted NSW Roads and Maritime, who advise the same. There are no secrets in road safety.
    9. These are not to be confused with signposted ‘Truck only rest areas’, which are restricted to use by ‘trucks’ (Trucks carry freight…)
    10. Roads, and therefore these areas, are under the authority of the State roads authorities and NOT NHVR. Therefore, the State road authorities usually have jurisdiction over them.
    11. Some people advise that they are only for trucks to use. While originally intended for long hall trucks, this is NOT CORRECT, all road users can use them. I expect common sense to prevail and give trucks priority, as most truck drivers are time restricted and need to rest by law. However; no one wants a tired driver on the roads no matter what they drive, so if tired, pull over and have a SHORT rest in one of these bays or a recognised rest area, and then when rested be on your way to a more suitable place to spend the night.
    12. I DO NOT KNOW OF ONE TRUCK DRIVER WHO WOULD OBJECT TO A CARAVANNERS OR MOTORHOME DRIVERS, USING ONE OF THESE STOPS TO PULLOVER SHORT TERM TO ASSIST A TRUCK DRIVER AND OTHER ROAD USER TO PASS, SO THAT THEY CAN ALL GET ON THEIR WAY AND ARRIVE AT FAMILY AND PARTNERS SAFELY AND ON TIME.
    I BELIEVE IT WOULD BE SILLY FOR SOMEONE TO OBJECT TO SOMEONE TRYING TO HELP OTHERS IN THIS REGARD.
    13. NOTE: They are NOT for overnight or extended stops. As soon as possible get on your way and have a better rest at a designated rest area or park. They are usually very close to the road and not long, so I would not assume that a caravanners or RV drivers would get a very good sleep that close to a busy highway, so I do not believe that this will be a problem and would be self-regulating.
    14. Please move to the end of the bay to allow others to pull off the road behind you.
    15. If you are holding up traffic, radio and indicate your intensions early, pull over and let others pass. It is a common courtesy, and will help ensure less stress, anxiety and stupid risky overtaking that can take the life of all involved. Stay safe.
    I hope that explains the correct use of 3-2-1- Green Reflectors and some common sense.
    So please keep an eye out for them and you will now know what they are therefore.

  17. The Black Bra
    I had lunch with 2 of my unmarried friends. One is engaged, one is a mistress, and I, the third one, have been married for 20+ years.
    We were chatting about our relationships and decided to amaze our men by greeting them at the door wearing a black bra, stiletto heels and a mask over our eyes. We agreed to meet in a few days to exchange notes.
    Here’s how it all went.
    My engaged friend:
    The other night when my boyfriend came over he found me with a black leather bodice, tall stilettos, and a mask. He saw me and said, ‘You are the woman of my dreams…I love you.’ Then we made passionate love all night long.
    The mistress:
    ‘Me too! The other night I met my lover at his office and I was wearing a raincoat, under it only the black bra, heels and mask over my eyes. When I opened the raincoat he didn’t say a word, but he started to tremble and we made wild love all night.’
    Then I had to share my story:
    ‘When my husband came home I was wearing the black bra, black stockings, stilettos and a mask over my eyes. When he came in the door and saw me he said,
    “What’s for dinner, Zorro?”’

    ” Kennedy said. “Mitch McConnell was asked, How can we cut food stamps to 30 million Americans, when we’re spending $113 billion on Ukraine, and he said, Don’t worry, the money’s not staying in Ukraine, it’s all coming back to military contractors on the United States.”

    But she’s being sent to a resort rather than a prison. Because vagina.

      • She was guilty.
        Good result.

        Planned for a while
        I still contend she waited until she got to NZ where she thought she may well get away with it.
        Problem with NZ law is that sentences are generally concurrent.
        This murderer should never see the light of day.
        Sadly the NZ taxpayer has to foot this bill.
        Bitch.

      • What grates me is the double standard applied on the basis of gender – by those who tell us gender is just a social construct.

        If a troubled man did this there would have been none of this contrived compassion we are seeing. He would be portrayed as a monster. If he tried the feelzzz defence he would be persecuted even harder.

  20. QT Nicola Willis to Minister of Finance (excerpt):

    “How can he claim there is no wasteful spending that could be better used for tax reduction, when the Ministry for Pacific Peoples can find $40,000 for a leaving party, and how much has he budgeted for his?”

    She’s getting good at this.

  21. As of January 1 this year, Japan’s total population stood at 125.4 million, including both Japanese and foreign residents, according to data released on Wednesday by Japan’s internal affairs ministry. The number of foreign residents rose by nearly 289,500 compared to the previous year – a significant increase of more than 10%.

    But the number of Japanese residents shrank by 800,523, marking the 14th consecutive year of contraction since a peak in 2009, said the ministry.

  22. As usual, important info paywalled.
    Looks like they are preparing to fabricate more of the climate scam so they can round up a lot more people, and force them into smart cities, for their own safety, of course.//

  23. NOW 5¼ MILN
    The resident population rose to 5,223,100 as at June, up +2.1% from a year ago. This is the strongest annual growth in about five years. Growth in the working-age population (15-64) was +2.3%, boosted by reopened borders.

    SPIKE IN DEATHS
    There were 57,534 live births were registered in the year to June 2023, down from 60,009 in the prior equivalent year. There were 38,346 deaths were registered, up from 36,723 as Covid took its extra unusual toll. That means our ‘natural increase in population (excluding migration) was +19,185, down from +23,280. Our infant mortality rate however fell to 3.49 deaths per 1,000 live births, down from 3.85 in the June 2022 year.

    ‘OPEN SLATHER’ AN ELECTION WINNER?
    National is hinting the foreign home house buyer ban will be lifted. The pre-TPPA ban on foreign homebuyers could be changed under a National-led government, and Labour notes that any such change would then be irreversible because of the Treaty obligations.

    So the feathered turkey thinks house prices are going down then. Hmmm well.
    Perhaps Keas was reading the wrong newspaper?

    HOUSE PRICES FALLING
    China’s new home prices fell in July from a year ago, and from a month ago they were unchanged. But in their largest 70 cities, prices for second hand homes are falling in 65 of them from the same month a year ago. The pressure is on their residential housing market in a way that makes property development a losing proposition there.

    • And then there is this little gem.,

      Reserve Bank changes its forecasts and now expects house prices to rise from the current quarter, with annual prices showing an increase by March next year
      The Reserve Bank (RBNZ) has again changed its view on house prices and now reckons we will see price rises in the current quarter.

      And in forecasts prepared for its latest Monetary Policy Statement, the RBNZ said it believed house prices hit the trough – and stopped falling as of the June quarter.

      This means the bank has revised up, quite markedly, its forecasts for the housing market in each of its last two Monetary Policy Statements.

      Back in February the RBNZ had forecast a peak-to-trough decline in the market of 23%. Then in May it was 17%. Now it’s just 15%.

      The RBNZ now reckons that prices will grow 1.6% in the current quarter and the by March 2024 we will be seeing annual growth of 3.6%.

      However, the RBNZ does not see this rate of growth accelerating, indeed after forecasting a ‘peak’ annual growth rate of 4.3% in June of next year the central bank sees the annual rate declining back to 2.6% by March 2025. However, it does see prices then rising a little bit more, with the highest level, 5.6%, set to be met in the last forecast month, which is September 2026.

      Back in February the RBNZ said:

      “House prices are projected to keep falling in 2023, consistent with very low sales volumes in recent months. House prices are assumed to have fallen by around 23% from their peak in 2021 to their trough in mid-2024, before recovering as interest rates decline toward their neutral setting.”

      But now in its latest MPS it says:

      The constraining impact of high interest rates has been most visible in spending and economic activity related to housing over the past year. Higher interest rates have contributed to lower demand for housing, with house prices falling 15% from their peak in November 2021 to March 2023. Stronger net immigration, alongside a peak in interest rate expectations, has occurred at the same time as house prices have started to stabilise in recent months. While the outlook for house prices is highly uncertain, they are now assumed to have reached a trough earlier than was assumed in the May Statement.

      The RBNZ said the stabilisation in house prices over the June 2023 quarter “was earlier than anticipated in the May Statement”.
