  1. As I have mentioned before I have a new cellphone which is replacing my old phone damaged when it was dropped,it’s an S22 ultra Samsung which I was attempting to transfer all my information from my old phone to this new phone, going on the net for a description on how to carry out the task there were warnings about later model cell phones in general taking far more information than is necessary to have the phone operating efficiently .
    FFS there were 5 programs that had the microphone and gps turned on permanently and a further 6 that turned on the gps and microphone when those programs were used, the privacy contract comes straight out and tells me that they will use all the information they collect as they see fit ( in a less strident explanation of course)
    With a bit of searching I was able to disable all those “SPYING” functions but I seriously doubt the little South Korean cnuts haven’t got an invisible back up program to funnel my information to my stinking government who are probably paying them handsomely for their treachery,We have no such thing as privacy anymore .
    a couple of years ago I’d have been considered a conspiracy theory nutter and unhinged for saying anything about this shit our own government and big tech are doing to the people but it’s here right now and there’s fuck all you can do about it, FFFFUUUUCCKK.

  2. n a large, international company, ten cannibals are hired as part of a diversity program. For a year the company’s productivity has been growing steadily and the management is very satisfied.

    One morning, the area manager summons the cannibals:

    A cleaning lady has disappeared, does anyone know anything about it?

    All the cannibals shake their heads. The division manager accepts the answer and leaves. Then the chief of the cannibals stands up and says sharply: who was it?

    A young cannibal explains whimpering: I had worked all night and was so hungry and then she came and looked so delicious.

    The chief yells at him: Are you crazy! We’ve been living off middle management here for a year and no one notices, and you idiot eats a cleaning lady!

  3. I am horrified and mortified. that I live in a country where the Early Settler is so down trodden, discriminated against and generally put at every opportunity, to the back of the queue. Especially in the Voting Booth. It is just, not right. Something needs to be done to correct this blatant imbalance

    So it is good to see that the Electoral Commission is trying to stamp out the evil Colonialists obvious advantage at the Polling Booth, negate the Colonialists blatant racism and ensure the Early Settler and Canoe People know which Party they need to vote for, to ensure that they, the perpetually down trodden Early Settler, keep getting the reparations they so richly deserve.

    • Revvy, if you did not learn anything last night and feel you are doomed, I would suggest it was due to the very poor selection of questions asked, none of them were probing, well thought out and eliciting, concise answers.

      The Adjudicator was poor, over talked one party she did not like the answers she heard and had no ability to ask probing questions.

      If you learn’t nothing, it is due to the poor format, poor questions and in my opinion, abject failure of the Adjudicator to elicit meaningful answers to questions.

    • Good morning all. I could not watch those two fuck ups last night on tv, I thought I would rather stick my eye that I have just paid good money to have repaired, with a rusty nail and dig it in hard. Jesus and all the other deities wept, then to add to that the piece of information Ed put up this morning about the act party with the tax relief for jabbed people. They are all just a bunch of despicable nutters CNUTS I would say. No one from my area Hamilton West is worthy of my vote I will never vote again. I am so disgusted with all the parties, the only one that has said anything I believe in is Winny and he is such a liar and could NEVER be trusted. What a to do.
      Be careful out there today after last nights efforts I doubt you are going to ever be safe. At least the weather is turning into summer??????? .

          I went to my Doctor a couple of weeks ago and was astonished to find them still masking up and only seating patients every second or third seat.

      • Thank you Lizziep for watching so I didn’t have to. Nothing would induce me to subject myself to such aggravation. I wonder if they will post lowlights on You Tube. I am close to despair at New Zealand’s future except of course we are NOT in Europe and facing the collapse / invasion they are suffering.

    • Saggy, I see from your post that these Black scum tell the locals, like Arney, “they’ll be back.” Well don’t count on Plod being their to look after the locals best interests. No doubt Plod will just stand by and discuss what delicacies my be left at the local donut shop to consume before they finish their shift.

        • that is why the poolice give the peaceful protesters the bash and gangs are allowed to grow, get funding, and be acknowledged

          Have you seen the pledge signed by ardern, luxon, seymore, and shaw to NOT meet with illegal gangs, such as they did with the wellington protestors ?

          Nah, neither have I .

          this is why I refer to liebour as PRO-Crime.
          They will mix with criminals, not harass them; give them poolice escorts at funerals.
          But the law-abiding, protesting citizens at Wgtn were given the bash and their meagre assets destroyed.
          Asets not derived from illegal drug sales.
          This is NZ today
          Think about who you support in politics.

          Wellington protectors were alcohol free and provided meals .
          Will you get that at Gang HQ?
          Most of the times poolice were shot at or near in the last 3 years has been gang people.

          But they are ranked higher by current PRO-Crime goo-mint than people who lost their tax paying jobs or were vaXXXine damaged by a forced medical procedure.

      Been there and done that, and yes a year is about right for a reasonably fit person.
      WEas good after 3 weeks but it still takes a while for the effects of the anaesthetic etc to go.

        In respect of ‘Heart Op’ experiences (And FWIW) this might be of interest: Several years ago I was getting ‘chest pains’ and, being retired, put this down to being a consequence of ‘advancing years’. My GP could find nothing, despite giving me the various usual scans, and so, ‘Just in case he had missed something’, sent me to the local hospital (Waikato in this instance) to see what they could find, with what follows occurring a week before departure from NZ on a long-planned visit to family members overseas. I had absolutely NO idea about what was to follow and in obedience to the directives received, essentially walked-in in my ‘street clothes’ expecting to be ‘in and out’ in about an hour. When ignorance is bliss’ and all that..! Suffice to say that after spectacularly failing the first test I was given (The ‘treadmill/stress’ test), I was admitted a mere 45 minutes after said failure and after 18 days (Seriously!) in residence and a quadruple bypass in the interim, I emerged in far better shape than previously – and with the ‘chest pains’ (Deemed to be ‘Angina’ – a word I had never previously associated with myself) largely gone. To say that my admission was a ‘surprise’ would be an understatement (and something for which I was definitely NOT prepared) but throughout the entire sage, the Waikato Hospital staff at all levels were fantastic and couldn’t be faulted. The result of their skilled attention had been that several years on I am still doing well and have had no further heart-related problems. There was however an unfortunate down side (side-effect? ) to all of the above, in that, due to Covid etc., subsequent family health issues and the actions of Air NZ (Long story) we never DID get to complete the trip, so perhaps one day…

        As I said, I thought you might find this of interest.

        Thank you.

I know he’s not Ian Wisharts favourite, but I’m sure everyone wishes him all the best considering the canings he received from Cindy and other Labour lackies during the Covid press conferences. Go well, son, and aim to be eating tofu and and green beans as you watch Labour dealt to on election night.

  6. By e mail from the UK:

    If the truth was told then Black History Month would be called Black Embarrassment Day.

    Humans appeared in Africa. Some of them left to become white people elsewhere. This is not THEIR story.
    Africa has an abundance of every natural resource. It has the most fertile land on the planet. There has never been a shortage of manpower. And Africans have had the WHOLE OF HUMAN HISTORY to build a civilization.
    But the best technical achievement they managed was the stick which they discovered under a tree and have barely upgraded to pointy at one end.

    Life consisted of fighting, raping, killing and eating each other until they discovered that they could also SELL each other to Arabs for trinkets. Then to white people who had mixed feelings about owning them and eventually gave it up after admitting that black people weren’t even much good at picking cotton.

    The Black slaves in America were offered the chance to populate Liberia and make their own high-functioning civilization but they declined preferring to hang around waiting for Al Sharpton to get them free stuff from the government.

    The only time Africa worked was when a white feller with a whip told the black people what to do. When the white people were removed Africa quickly devolved into a poo hole and the black population only grew because white people started sending them billions of dollars in food and aid.

    Now Africans are invading Europe to demand free living at white expense. In this they are being assisted by evil globalist scum who are using them as a biological weapon to destroy white countries.

    And THAT is Black History.

    • Cute and selective.
      Brits are piss weak on history.

      There were bugger all slaves that picked cotton.
      More than 10 times the number of Black slaves were taken by the portuguese to Brazil.
      For sugar.
      The Caribbean was a massive sugar growing area with islands occupied variously by the French, Spanish and English.

      ————————
      To participate in the slave trade in Spanish America, bankers and trading companies had to pay the Spanish king for the license, called the Asiento de Negros, but an unknown amount of the trade was illegal.
      After 1670 when the Spanish Empire declined substantially they outsourced part of the slave trade to the Dutch (1685-1687), the Portuguese, the French (1698-1713) and the English (1713-1750),
      also providing organized depots in the Caribbean islands to the Dutch, British and French America.
      As a result of the War of the Spanish Succession, the British government obtained the monopoly (asiento de negros) of selling African slaves in Spanish America, which was granted to the South Sea Company.
      ——————
      Brazil
      Slavery was a mainstay of the Brazilian colonial economy, especially in mining and sugarcane production.[119] 35.3% of all enslaved people from the Atlantic Slave trade went to Colonial Brazil.
      4 million enslaved people were obtained by Brazil, 1.5 million more than any other country.[120]
      Starting around 1550, the Portuguese began to trade enslaved Africans to work the sugar plantations, once the native Tupi people deteriorated.
      Although Portuguese Prime Minister Sebastião José de Carvalho e Melo, 1st Marquis of Pombal prohibited the importation of enslaved people into Continental Portugal on 12 February 1761, slavery continued in her overseas colonies.
      Slavery was practiced among all classes.
      Enslaved people were owned by upper and middle classes, by the poor, and even by other enslaved people.
      —————-

    • My ancestors were slaves. I now own $2,000,000 in property. Where do I go to claim more from Whitey? ( I am Black, as these slaves were in West Africa, although years of colonial breeding has diluted the Blackness. I feel so oppressed. ) Should I vote Maori as they are the closest thing to Real Blacks in New Zealand, although my sources say that they discovered Africa when they got lost coming back from Antarctica. So confused, oppressed and abused. Now do I choose Bollinger or Moet to drown my sorrows? ( Traditional Maori Drink, served at Government farewell bashes)….. Oh FOR FUCKS SAKE…….

      (the bit about slave ancestry and Black DNA is true)…..

  7. Alice ,obviously you haven’t heard Alice, some black professors in the UK have come out this morning and declared (Seriously) that Stone Henge was designed and built by black fellas 3000 years before Bryan was born in a manger ,they’ll need the tattooed cowboy and Willie Blackson to take a 1st class trip to the UK and help with corroborating the research.
    Willie will declare ” this is a big sacrifice for myself and my family but for my black brothers I’ll do it”
    The tattooed fuckwitt will say ” Me and my family are already in the UK so I’m good to go as long as we get an upgrade to the Savoy for our accommodation”, two brave and generous families right there folks.

  8. The Westpac rescue helicopter crash landed on the side of Mount Pirongia (near Te Awamutu)

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2023/09/breaking-news-westpac-rescue-helicopter-crashes-into-bush-while-on-its-way-to-collect-patient.html
    Search and Rescue’s chief operating officer Chris Moody said the Hamilton based Rescue Helicopter was on its way to a patient on Mount Pirongia, a popular hiking and recreational area located in the Waikato region.

    Moody said, during the flight, an incident occurred that resulted in a “heavy landing”.

    He confirmed no reports of injuries in relation to the people on board.

    • We should have learnt by now not to expect anything better from local government troughers.

      I note though that one of the commentators to the article knows Northland well:

      “Kaikohe, where he lives, is so dirty and overrun with gang members and crime, that I no longer stop there for anything. The filth in the roadsides driving to Kaikohe (I have to go thru it to get somewhere clean and safe) is disgusting.”

  10. A man went to his doctor.

    After several tests, the doctor returned to the exam room and told him “I’m terribly sorry sir but at our best estimation you have barely a year left to live.”

    “That’s horrible!” said the man. “Is there nothing I can do?!”

    The doctor replied “Well, my advice is to become a vegan, marry an accountant & move to Palmerston North.”

    “Will that cure me?” asked the man

    “No,” said the doctor “but it’ll make that year seem a LOT longer!”

    • There seems to be a few more houses for sale locally though according to a land agent who sends me her sales reviews local demand seems limited to the high end of the market. The low end keeps ticking over as the parasite class buy up hovels to rent out but the bread & butter three bedroom suburban middle stays depressed.

      But the one booming industry within the Wairarapa is that of funeral directors as the old, poisoned by Pfizer & medically neglected for two years shuffle off into the crematorium. It struck me that it is their houses that are making their way onto the market & the beneficiaries of their wills are more likely to take a haircut so as to get their hands on the cash.

  14. Reading a few things around the traps about the debate last night, some are saying Luxon kept saying something like “yeah we are agree on those things, but we have a better way to deliver them ” Somethings including climate change issues etc.
    So now some are saying a grand coalition is a good thing because the two main parties are agreeing on so much !!! Same as Lees Gallow mentioned above.

    Nothing will surprise me now.

    I wrote to Simon Bridges when Luxon got to be leader suggesting to Simon not to give up on his leadership ambitions because Luxon would not cut it. I added that the way he and Willis were going and thinking they would be starting up merger talks with Labour in the near future. It was a little tongue in cheek (but only a little) but hell, I might be proved right. What a terrible thought.

  16. Winston Peters
    @winstonpeters
    The Foreign Minister Nanaia Mahuta’s presence in New York today at the United Nations General Assembly is a contempt of New Zealand’s “caretaker government” convention.

    Despite the long-standing caretaker convention, Minister Mahuta is today at the UN to sign a highly contentious “Biodiversity Beyond National Jurisdiction (BBNJ) Agreement”, delivering a national statement on behalf of New Zealand at the UN, and then undertaking bilateral meetings with world leaders and counterparts.

    Parliament has risen and New Zealand is less than two weeks from when early voting begins on October 2nd. The caretaker convention has always been that these matters the Foreign Minister is engaged in, should be left to the next government to deal with.

    Minister Mahuta claims to be doing this on behalf of “Aotearoa New Zealand”, which to begin with is not our country’s name. What she omitted to explain was why she is signing this agreement now, this close to an election, when this agreement is open for signature in New York for the next two years.

    There has been no public announcement or discussion of the Minister’s intention to sign the agreement. In short, the Minister is signaling before the next government is even elected, an intention to ratify.

    Labour is putting globalists in charge of the high seas, and from here the NGOs will take over the secretariat and expand the remit of this document, to ensure that all activity on the high seas will require UN approval – such as shipping, fishing, and deep-sea mining.

    Labour has no mandate to push forward with this covert agenda, with just weeks out from the election.

    As an aside, why is a Minister who has failed so often to travel to secure diplomatic agreement in our own neighbourhood of the “Blue Pacific Continent”, now travelling all the way to New York, and then Washington, when those offshore dealing with her have a certainty that there is little likelihood of Labour being in the next government.

    This is circa 2010 all over again when Minister Pita Sharples, without any public notice, travelled to the UN in the dead of night and signed UNDRIP (United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples) – after the previous Foreign Minister and Government had already declined to sign the declaration in 2007.

    This is another example of Labour’s “Pandoras Box” principle – Labour is doing everything they can before the election in the hopes that “once it’s done it cannot be undone”.

    This level of contempt shown for the people of New Zealand and our long-standing democratic convention, is an astonishing development that cannot, and will not, go unchecked.

    The other bail house raided by police last year was the notorious facility at Karaka St, Auckland run by sisters Elaine and Karen Ngamu from Ahikaa Trust. Elaine has close family connections with the Tribesmen gang and been described as one of NZ’s biggest fraudsters having over 230 dishonesty offences going back to the 1970s, including large scale mailbox scams. Courts routinely bail defendants to these bail house facilities which are effectively run as gang pads. Last year police seized meth, cash and guns from the Karaka St property.

    Clearly bail houses should be run by providers of secure facilities and not gang affiliates.

    • Much of the problem stems from Court ordered bail being a “contract” where an alleged offender merely agrees with the conditions of bail. There is no provision for money to be demanded as surety. Effectively the offender has little to lose especially if they are reasonably certain of being found guilty at trial.

      Contrast this with USA bail where an absconder is hunted down by bail bondsmen who stand to lose considerable amounts of folding stuff if the crim disappears.

      Money talks.

      • That’s beginning to change.

        Illinois is the first state to legislate the elimination of cash bail as part of the Pretrial Fairness Act, upending one of the fundamental ways criminal courts operate and replacing it with something entirely different. The new paradigm eliminates cash bail and assumes folks accused, but not convicted of crimes, should be released before trial.

      • So only the rich get bail and/or justice.

        “Innocent until proven guilty” Everyone has heard of it but few people understand it.

        For sex crimes you get trial by man hating feminists in the media. They talk of “the victim” before its even known anything at all happened. It should be 3 years prison, for obstruction of justice, to refer to an accuser as a “victim”. Lying slut might be a more neutral term.

        • ……”So only the rich get bail and/or justice.”……

          Not necessarily. For instance in the states the bail bond is co-signed by a bail bondsman, who charges the defendant a fee in return for guaranteeing the payment. The bail bond is a type of surety bond. I dare say that if you’re an unemployed criminal bum who has absconded before then getting bail would be tough but that’s probably as it should be.

          I’d have no objection for the state to reimburse any costs if the verdict is ‘not guilty’. The whole idea is to get the accused into the courtroom for trial. Not cutting off nancy trackers & going on a crime spree.

          i think the cash bail thing is a good concept, poor scummers are more likely to reoffend then a rich one. cry me a river if mr poo skin mongrel mob cant put up 200k to get bailed on ankle bracelet for a murder charge.

    In fact since then they have shown themselves to be tyrant worshipping totalitarian communists.

    That is why ACT and Notional must pretend to care about leftist talking points. DNZ doesn’t and are Dam Near Zero for that reason.

    They have to play the political game to access the levers of power.

    • So they will be boiling then ?

      In 1990 I worked with a guy from Oz in Akl who was on a one year secondment
      that is 33 years ago.
      He was happy it is cooler here. And that was 1990 when we had the best summer in years.

      He normally lived out West Sydney near the hills.
      He said then it got very hot at night. (and day)
      You had you have a pool; even a kids paddling pool. . Before Air con was much of a thing, or heat pumps.
      He said he had to jump in the pool to cool down before bed and get to sleep before he heated up.
      It is nothing new and would have been the same in 1850.

      My brother’s in-laws in Aussie have a spa pool . It is cool in winter and they use it.
      In summer they just fill it with water and have two big water bladders they chuck in the chest freezer during the day and place in the pool in the evening to cool it down.

      It is what it is. It has not changed much.
      media bleating wont change it much.
      The 1960s were hot there .

  20. GRAHAM ADAMS: Is Ardern a liability for Labour?

    Ministers are pretending the former PM has simply vanished.

    Late last week, Tova O’Brien asked Grant Robertson on her Stuff podcast if Jacinda Ardern should be “rolled out” to “galvanise the base” to help save Labour’s faltering campaign.

    Robertson laughed. ”I’m sure for Jacinda the last thing on her mind is the election.”

  21. It’s the only way forward. 2 ticks ACT 🙂
    “Did you see the news on TV1? ACT is up 2 points to 12% in this week’s 1News Verian poll.

    This result would translate to a record 15 ACT MPs and an ACT-National Government, giving our voters a major voice not just in Parliament but around the Cabinet table.

    This result comes after our Campaign Launch where we committed to ending race-based policies and twisted Treaty interpretations. In other words, voters are seeing through the negative spin and ACT’s message of real change is hitting home.”

  22. Protect the lambs

    https://www.1news.co.nz/2023/09/20/heavy-spring-snow-set-to-hit-south-island/
    MetService has forecast heavy snow and chilly temperatures for parts of Canterbury and Otago later this week.

    It said inland areas of both Canterbury and northern Otago can expect to see snow accumulations of around 10cm above 200 metres and 20-40cm for areas above 400 metres.

    MetService meteorologist Clare O’Connor said: “We’re not just looking at alpine areas of the South Island/Te Waipounamu – the snow level could be as low as 300 metres in Otago, and down to 200 metres over the Canterbury Plains. This is a significant event, and particularly impactful for the rural community given the time of the year.”

  24. ‘Assist dog’ more stressful than restful.

    https://www.1news.co.nz/2023/09/20/singapore-airlines-refunds-passenger-who-complained-about-farting-dog/
    A Kiwi couple sat next to a farting, snorting bulldog in premium economy on an international flight earlier this year have finally been thrown a bone.

    Gill Press and her husband were travelling from Paris to Singapore in June when they were seated next to the so-called ‘assist dog’.

    “And I mean, it was unbelievable. My husband went and spoke to the flight attendant, who said, ‘Look, there’s nothing else – we can give you three seats at the back of the economy’. And I said, ‘Well, let’s just try sitting where we are,’ and halfway through in the dark, the smell got to me.”

    She said it was “in distress” from the moment the flight took off.

    “So the dog, he then had to fan – with the safety card – the dog for an hour-and-a-half to calm it down and get its breathing right. When those dogs breathe, they emit moisture out of their mouth.
