  1. The lion is a magnificent animal. Strong, fearless and awe inspiring.
    The LIAR Ardern is a coward. Weak, fearful and stupefying.

    NEVER forget what that creature, and her vermin cohorts, as well
    as the bought and paid for ‘media’ filth did to New Zealand.

  2. Here’s the quality of the American MSM, President Trump used the word RIGGERS when describing the insane charges laid by Georgian authorities in their latest indictment.
    MSNBC, CBSN CNN. ABC.and Al Sharpton started stating as fact that when Trump used that word on his Truth Social platform he 100 % meant the other word that starts with N.
    It’s satisfying to know that the average NZ voter is probably smarter than the average US voter if the American people believe this absurd crap being spouted by their media Biden bootlickers

    • Good morning, I am not sure about the fact that the New Zealanders are smarter. Look at what happened to us during the so called pandemic, dear leader was an absolute dictator, I think it’s about the same number here as there. So many fucking stupid people voting for the leftists and believing what the hell the leftists want people to believe. Yes if they believe that the word rigours is the same as the N word, that is up to them the stupid bastards do not even understand the English language. They will do anything to disparage the Don, I wish we had someone that would stand up for us the same as he does. Donald Trump is correct when he says they are coming after you through me.

  4. Was just reading a comment from someone who went to a meeting with Andrew Bailey.
    Bailey claimed to know nothing about Agenda 2030 and Blackrock had little influence in NZ.
    Bailey was on with Plunket during the week and was pathetic.
    Go ahead and vote for National no change.

    • The UN 17 SDG’s are being imbedded in New Zealand, in part where it applies, and that way of thinking is being practiced by the bureaucracy of Waimakariri District Council.

      ….. inclusion of statements relating to the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (known as Agenda 2030) in the annual plan. …..

      They can not call them conspiracists now as there it is, in black & white, in the Council’s plans.

      Any one not knowing this, being ignorant, turning a blind eye, and so trying to keep others ignorant too.
      They have a responsibility of care to know such things, and seem to be negligent, and I would say malfeasance as they are complicit with that agenda, and no more than a traitor.

      Beyond Conspiracy when NZ government calls in Black Rock now.

HOW DID LUXON MISS THE ASSAULT ON POSIE PARKER, ETC?

How can they think it’s a good political move to give the few trannies and other weirdos more attention at the very real risk of pissing off us normal voters. It’s not likely they were going to vote for National. Being what they are, they would all be Liarbour voters.

  5. I had to laugh last night listening to the chief economic reporter on Fox’s business channel complaining that it cost him $150.00 to fill his Dodge Ram Te Rex from empty, approximately 46 gallons ,FFS here in Gayotearoa it would have cost him $550.00 for 91, I’ll stop complaining about filling my M/C right now, LOL.

    A Public School Actually Did This

    8 mins 29 secs : 18th 2023 : JP Reacts [Awakes]

    In today’s video we react to a TikTok video of Pride week in a children’s elementary school. This actually happened…

    Another parallel ?
    Is all the “kapa haka” in schools more than just “culture”?
    It seems that from that base it can subtlety push “racism” issues & about Tweety colonialism to support co-governance?
    All stirred up in a frenzied feelz of emotionalism & a feelz of power.

  9. A woman from the countryside goes to the gynecologist.
    “Doctor, I have a bunch of children, and as soon as I give birth, I get pregnant again… What do you advise me to do to not get pregnant anymore?”
    “Well, the safest option would be to abstain from sleeping with your husband for a while.”
    “I’ve tried, doctor, but with so many children to take care of, I work all day long, and by evening, I’m exhausted and fall asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow. And my husband sneaks in beside me without me even noticing, given how tired I am…”
    “Well, if that’s the case, go and buy a ten-liter jar. When you go to bed at night, put your feet in the jar, and you’ll be free from trouble!”
    The woman didn’t quite understand what the doctor meant and asked, “How in the jar, doctor?”
    “Just like that! You lie down with your feet in the jar, and you’ll see that you won’t get pregnant anymore. The method is 100% guaranteed.”
    After a few good months, the woman comes back to the doctor, “swollen as can be.” When the doctor sees her, he asks in surprise, “You got pregnant again? It’s not possible! How did it happen? Did you buy a ten-liter jar, like I told you, to put your feet in when you go to bed?”
    To which the woman says, “I did buy it, doctor, but I couldn’t find a ten-liter jar, so I bought two five-liter ones…”

  10. I’ve been pondering, all preconceptions out of the window, trying to make the pieces of the jigsaw fit together. What if Winnie turns out to be New Zealand’s Donald Trump? What if he was similarly tasked with exposing our own swamp? As in “You can’t just tell the people, you have to show the people…”

    Yes, yes, cunning old Winston, will do anything for a bauble, words are cheap, the drunken dwarf won’t deliver. I jumped on the Winston-bad bandwagon a long time ago. But upon reflection are we sure about that? What if Winston Peters has been part of a carefully crafted plan, years in the making?

    He claims he’s a Nationalist, not a Globalist. The NZFirst slogan “Let’s take back our country” has echoes of MAGA. And whereas we can’t know for sure at this stage, what we do know for sure is Lab/Nat/Act are Globalists, supporters of the WEF, the UN, WHO et al, all willing to sell this country out.

    We saw how they presented a united front against the Wellington Protesters – literally all on the same page! – so how can we trust any of them? Whether they intend to form a grand coalition or not, they are all traitors.

    So before we dismiss Winston Peters and his MAGA-esque manifesto, perhaps we should ask why voting for Winston Peters and NZFirst is more of a risk than voting for a party you already know you can’t trust? The knives are out for Winnie with a vengeance and I find it interesting that they perceive him as such a threat.

    Like Donald Trump in the US, Winston Peters has not been in parliament for the worst excesses of the current government. And I find myself wondering if he’s going to start dropping pre-arranged truth bombs at some point and exhuming a few long-buried bodies. Just a thought. Time will tell, I guess.

    • Imo the lack of trust for winnie is not due to his policy, promises etc its that he gave us cindy and many know nz1 is really winston first and dont trust he wont give us another labour govt.
      Hes ruled outva coalition “this labour govt” which gives him alot of wriggle room and we all know everyone has a price esp politicians and esp winnie!

      Winnie most certainly is nothing like trump, winnie just seen something that wins votes an emulates that strategy

      • HP, winnie wont do any of that and we know it. Hes just doing what he does everytime by saying and promising the right things to harvest votes from gullable and disgruntled swing voters.
        Hes announced nutters as potential candidates, theyve made out like theyre a sure thing to lure in other nutter voters but in reality they could get dropped like a hot potato come writ day when he announces the final list. If he drops the nutters or they have a really shit list position then you know 100% the covid butthurt promises will be out the window come oct 15 if he makes it over 5%

        Vote winnie cuz stupid is as stupid does!

          They are to be Winston’s bait for catching enough votes,, & then afterwards to be only as expendable vote fodder in Parliament that suits Winston’s agenda.

      The going along with the reduction of people in gaol, whatever it takes that started early in Ardern’s term.
      And of course the support in the change to the education system and use of the maori language.

      Sitting back on his laurels, of non achievement, & seeming to sleep in his Cabinet positions just does not cut it.

    • I saw a somewhat cynical post somewhere the other day, saying as the elections nears ( say 6 months out) Winston just Googles for the 5-6 top concerns of the day and bases his campaign around it. My first reaction was that’s a pretty low comment, but then I thought well isn’t that what a politician should do (forget the Google bit). He/she should be listening to the people and work out which of those key issues are important to the country as a whole and then adjust the party’s policies to meet the current concerns of the citizens.
      Unfortunately or fortunately, which ever way you look at it, NZF is one of the only parties that seem to be doing that.

      • ……”and then adjust the party’s policies to meet the current concerns of the citizens.”……

        Would that we should be so fortunate. Currently all four of the major parties plus NZ First listen to the people then try to convince them, through spin, that their party’s policies recycled from the last election will address voters’ concerns. In the LaLa land inhabited by politicians of all hues the unwashed of the electorate only exist until they’ve cast their vote then can be safely ignored for another three years.

        The naked fear of losing control engendered by the anti mandates protest at parliament was the most honest reaction from the pathological liars since the House of Representatives first sat in 1854.

  11. This morning I spent two hours with an incredible lady.
    She is full on go. She has been helping flood victims by sourcing and supplying all sorts of goods and services and visiting people in person to discuss the best options to reinstate houses.
    She has three on suicide watch and also supplies food for some .
    What is amazing is she has had cancer and five rounds of chemo.
    She said I got cancer after the shot. She had two.
    She said she thought the cancer had something to do with the shot.
    I asked if she had heard of Guy Hatchard.
    No was the answer .
    She had no idea of the issues we here discuss and share.
    I carefully mentioned a few bits of information and could see her thinking.
    Will be meeting her in a few days so that will be interesting.

    • Amazing how no one ever got cancer pre jab and now look cancer has just come from nowhere//
      Imo its more likely to be from the lockdowns and delayed appts etc, so many ppl were fearful of going to the doctor as they seen it as a high risk covid hotbed so delayed getting those lil niggles and odd things checked out until they got to a stage they cant be ignored.

      Only way to prove it would be to compare vax vs unvax cancer/morbitity rates and it would need compared over a long period say the next 10yrs. many unvax folk have lost trust and actively avoid interacting with our healthcare system.

      • Yip yip that’s me limited trust in the medical industrial complex.
        You are right about the difficulty in proving the cancer causing effect of the jabs though the pathways seem to have been well identified. We are all reliant on our immune systems to keep cancer at bay so if you fuck with your immune system it is likely that it could have an effect on cancer response.

  13. 🚨BREAKING 🚨 🚨BREAKING 🚨 🚨BREAKING 🚨 🚨BREAKING 🚨 🚨BREAKING 🚨

    WASHINGTON, September 15, 2022—As central banks across the world simultaneously hike interest rates in response to inflation, the world may be edging toward a global recession in 2023 and a string of financial crises in emerging market and developing economies that would do them lasting harm, according to a comprehensive new study by the World Bank.

    Central banks around the world have been raising interest rates this year with a degree of synchronicity not seen over the past five decades—a trend that is likely to continue well into next year, according to the report.

  14. I think this guy would be quite welcome on YSB given his “pull no punches style of writing”. But his article does explain why this Government does not need to be just beaten, it needs to smashed into small pieces.

    Unfortunately with people like Luxon in the position to smash them, it is not going to happen.

    https://breakingviewsnz.blogspot.com/2023/08/idbkiwi-our-water-rights-have-been.html

    “Just to bring you up to speed: Mahuta, at the very last minute, slipped in a supplementary order (No 306, 2022) on the night the Water Services (3 Waters) Bill became law. 306 broadened, hugely, the scope of the act, re-defining water as “water (as that term is defined in section 2(1) of the Resource Management Act 1991)”, which is this:

    water…
    a. means water in all it’s physical forms whether flowing or not and whether over or under ground
    b. includes fresh water, coastal water and geothermal water.
    c. does not include water in any form while in a pipe, tank or cistern

    I commented angrily at the time, and some of you wags joked that, at least, the water in the tank above the dunny was safe from claim due to exclusion (c). Think again, read it and weep: they’ve claimed the khazi cistern too, as of yesterday, under Comrade Kieran’s changes. “

        • wg
          Though I know nothing much about it, I have had raised to me a “Heart land Party” connection.

          Soon there will be an Independent candidate running for the King Country electorate.
          A previous National supporter, so in part will support them.
          In the past few years it has been stated on the blogs, that he should be a Justice Minister & sort out redefine the Police’s job.
          He gathered a lot of costly experience so will be very fierce on Crime & noting how hypocritical & how condescending the police.
          Later when it is a little worked more than damp ink, I will send on a copy of that too ED,

          It is one of the reasons I want to know more about how the overhang really works, when I have much more time to look into that.
          It seems that percentage wise it will flow more to the majority parties, National & ACT, which many say will win any way.
          But I am not sure if there could be some form of loose tie-up that can also help feed/direct that wasted vote. That may be where some has a “crossed wire” but still needs to be looked into, to see if it is workable, then why not.

          I figure National, Labour & Act are just doing the memes of a split vote supports Maori Party, Greens etc.. but I do not think it is much as made out.
          If Nat & ACT can not be a good opposition now!
          To look like more than a Clayton’s drink; to appear as a government in waiting with the supposed polls, placing them over 60%
          Then will they really be a reasonable government to have in power?

          • Overhang isn’t a difficult concept S1. It can occur when a party wins more electorate seats than it’s party vote would normally allow it. For instance in 2008:

            …..”The Māori Party, on the other hand, won five electorates but just 2.4% of the party vote – worth three seats on a pro rata basis. This resulted in an ‘overhang’ – the number of MPs was increased from 120 to 122 to accommodate the two extra electorate winners.”…….

            “It seems that percentage wise it will flow more to the majority parties, National & ACT, which many say will win any way.”

            Can’t remember who it was now but I did hear someone recently on a podcast stating any overhang will go to the major parties. Something else to investigate over the next few weeks.

        At least at Nuremberg there was a trial for crimes against the people before the guilty were punished.

  15. At last some rain and plenty of it. Of course Metservice is predicting climate doom with hysterical warnings about pretty much everything. Last year we had a big dry period at this time of year, followed by biblical rain for days on end. I’ve been wondering if we will get that again this year. They still haven’t fixed up all the sticks n gib heaps from the last one.

  16. Journalist and author Michael Shellenberger argues that wokeism is the dominant religion of elites in the West, complete with guilt, original sin, taboos, saints, devils, and the promise of redemption and immortality. How do we escape the woke matrix? Shellenberger offers a guide.

    Shellenberger delivered this lecture to UATX’s Forbidden Courses students on June 26, 2023 in Dallas, Texas. The Forbidden Courses bring together courageous thinkers and students to explore the great human questions of our time.

  17. Woodhouse spits the dummy on seeing his list placement. If he can’t win his electorate he’s gone.

    “We have a fantastic set of talent. I’m very proud that we actually have a balanced team,” Luxon said at the announcement.

    Michael Woodhouse, a senior minister in the John Key government, announced today that he would stand aside and is not on the list, Luxon said at a press conference.

    “It was clear from the ranking offered that I was not part of the leadership’s thinking regarding ministerial decisions, so I feel the best thing to do is stand aside to allow a fresher face into the caucus from the list.”

      • the bald bitch WEF luxon will not brook any opposition.

        Which could well be more than half the notional caucus.
        He has had a go at many MPs when in fact they have made sensible comments.
        THAT is not allowed.
        There is no room for individual thought .
        all instructions have been chiseled out by WEF and delivered .
        do not question.

        achtung achtung !!

        the cunt luxon is dangerous.
        extremely dangerous
        no less than adrain and keys
        he is a liar
        he is a traitor
        he follows overseas globalist dogma to the letter.

        Any geezer that thinks it is OK for cocks in frocks to go into womens and girls bathrooms needs a severe re-education to his head.
        His dogma is enforced by the Tranny Nic and the ‘get boosted’ sheepdog.

  18. AWFUL!!! 🥴 Is that how Jones thinks he’ll win Northland?

    Shane Jones appeals to voters with rendition of rock classic
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2023/08/19/watch-shane-jones-appeals-to-voters-with-rendition-of-rock-classic/

    Appealing to Northland voters, Jones sings Journey’s Don’t Stop Believing, swapping the original lyrics to focus on him and his achievements.

    “I took the PGF (Provincial Growth Fund) then gave the funds to our people,” sings a disembodied Jones floating above a Northland landscape.

    Jones managed the $3 billion Provincial Growth Fund during his tenure as Minister for Regional Economic Development.

    “I took a billion trees and planted everywhere,” he sings.

    “Croatian Māori, from Awanui…

  19. No matter how long it lives, the Greatest Lion will eventually die miserably. That’s the world.

    At their Peak, they rule, chase other animals, catch, devour, gulp and leave their crumbs for hyenas. But age comes fast.

    The old Lion can’t hunt, can’t kill or defend itself. It roams and roars until it runs out of luck. It will be cornered by the hyenas, nibbled at and eaten alive by them. They won’t even let it die before it is dismembered.

    As a side collaory to this I hear on the telly that the Nats have gone for diversity. 51+% of their top places are woman.
    As a mere male I reckon that’s where things have gone arse up. all these women and feminised men.
    We need a lot more testosterone around the place.

  20. The Herald’s poll of polls suggests NZ First is not quite guaranteed to get 5 per cent yet.
    But, just quietly, Peters has a bunch of National Party big beasts, including those helping Jones in Northland, cheering on NZ First to get over the line.

  21. Melbourne driver Alisha Fagan, who killed grandfather then blamed crash on ‘African men’, jailed

    A killer driver who caused the death of a grandfather in a high-speed crash could be released from jail in less than six months.

    At the time, Fagan, who was 21, had racked up numerous driving offences and her licence had been suspended. She was also on four sets of bail conditions at the time.

    Alisha Fagan blew kisses to her family members and said “see you soon”, as she was taken to the cells following her County Court sentencing on Friday.

    • So we know where the donations of the misguided west are being spent.
      Before the war Ukraine was known as the most corrupt country on the planet.
      There’s nothing like a war to make crooked men very rich.
      Is anyone surprised that corruption is now on steroids?

  22. Three young women are at a cocktail party. The conversation turns to their position in life and it’s clear that they are trying to one-up each other.
    The first one says, “My husband is taking me to the French Riviera for two weeks on vacation,” and then looks at the others with a superior demeanor.
    The second one says, “Well, my husband just bought me a new Mercedes,” and looks about with considerable pride.
    Number three says, “Well, to be perfectly honest with you, we don’t have much money and we don’t have any material possessions. However, one thing I can tell you about my husband is that thirteen canaries can stand shoulder to shoulder on his erect penis.”
    After this, the first one looks shamefaced and says, “Girls, I’ve got a confession to make. I was just trying to impress you. You know that vacation I was telling you about? Well, it’s not to the French Riviera, it’s to my parents house for two weeks.”
    The second one says, “Your honesty has shamed me. It’s not a Mercedes, he bought me a Fiat 500.”
    “Well,” the third one says, “I also have a confession to make, canary number thirteen has to stand on one leg!”

  23. Another excellent effort parking a police vehicle

    Police car stuck in ocean at Invercargill beach
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2023/08/19/video-police-car-stuck-in-ocean-at-invercargill-beach/

    Footage sent to 1News shows a police car completely stuck in the ocean as water washes above the wheels.

    Police said an officer was “carrying out duties in the area” when the car became stuck.

    “I’m surprised the car made it as far as it did, the spot they’re in is known for the soft sand.”
