  2. Turkey is not supporting Israel. If the Arab and Muslim countries go all out I don’t think Israel can stop them overrunning Israel. Even with US help. Based upon the 0% success rate of the US in unconventional warfare.

    Establishing a physical homeland, against the Torah and common sense/justice, was never a good idea. Just as millions of Jews said to the Zionists right at the start. It is not that Jews could not live there, it is just about establishing the place as “Jewish”. I have never heard a rational justification for it and I have looked long and hard. All you get is emotive nonsense, religious fables and other nonsense. It does not matter if we like Israel more than the Arab world, of course we do they are more like us. It is irrelevant. The fact is the creation of Israel has put millions of Jews and the entire world’s security at risk.

    Looking at this situation globally and holistically – I see no way the result will be a secure Israel. Even if they level Gaza and nuke the Arab world to dust. All their efforts to defend themselves are clearly growing the anti Israel ideology in the Arab world and setting it alight in the rest of the world too. Speaking with my Israeli friend yesterday he had to leave town early to avoid the pro Hamas protests in our sleepy little village.

    People can’t see this clearly due to religious nonsense and emotive irrational thinking about the holocaust. The very things that created this shit show.

    • Kea, I see you crawled out of the Holocaust deniers side of your flea pit this morning KEA,, next you’ll be saying the Bible is a fantasy drawn up by stupid old men millenia ago , one i’d agree with the other I wouldn’t and there’s no doubt which is which in your thoughts. LMFAO.

    • ☝️ Exhibit [A] ☝️

      Impotent triggered meat puppets who downtick without offering any rational fair argument to refute my self evident observations. It is this sort of low level thinking that created this mess. On the other side we have equally unhinged supporters of mass murdering baby raping Islamists.

      You are all pieces of shit.

    • Kea, the Arab world hates Israel as it’s both successful and Jewish. The amount of hate that is directed towards them in the Quran is unbelievable.
      The thing is that when Israel was created, it should have done a population swap like Turkey and Greece, or India and Pakistan did.
      The end of WWII, entire populations were shifted out of some areas to make populations more ethnically homogeneous. Over a million Jews were evicted from all across their lands in North Africa and the Middle East after Israel was created. There was not a million Muslim Palestinian Muslims at that time and it would have stopped some of the shit from happening.

      • Sorry Brian. A brave attempt but an epic fail.

        Notice how the first thing you did was appeal to emotion to set the scene. Same thing the lefitists do “hate”.

        Brian, the Jewish world hated Nazi Germany as it was both successful and German. The amount of hate that is directed towards them is unbelievable.

        See how morally bankrupt your position is?

        I am well aware of the history. The Arabs have done nothing but “hate” and have refused every offer to better their circumstances in the region. I know all that and much much more. That is why I support Israel in this conflict. Only different is I won’t lie and deny facts in doing so.

        • Fuck off Kea. The Quran demands that Muslims treat Jews as lessor people. (Only polytheists get worse scorn). At the end of times, even the trees will call to the Muslim faithful that there is a Jew hiding behind them and calls on the Muslims to kill them. The more religious a Muslim is, the more hatred to non believers they have. What else do you call that shit? Their own prophet had a fire lit on the chest of a Jewish tribal leader to make him tell where his treasure was hidden after one of murderous raids. Allah Akbar doesn’t mean god is great. The real meaning is my god Allah, is greater than your god. The presence of a nation doing better in their midst disproves that. Not all Muslims hate Jews, but a hell of a lot do.

          • So what this is not a theology argument dickhead. Also the Torah says plenty of shit stuff about non believers and so does the bible.

            I have made it clear I support Israel and have no time for the Islamists. I don’t know what you think we disagree on.

            The difference is you are a moral and intellectual cripple who lies and denies in order to justify your position. I simply accept reality and apply consistent principles. It is called “not being a piece of shit”.

            People like you are the type who persecute and other groups. People like me don’t. You exhibit exactly the mentality of those who persecuted Jews throughout history. Many Jewish people have observed this and it is why they supported multi culturalism etc. Because of zealots like you.

    • Even if it were possible to lift Israel up and deposit it as an isolated island somewhere in the middle of the Pacific, there would soon be flotillas of muslims arriving on shore, claiming the land as their own. Won’t be any resolution until one side is completely wiped out, and if the victor is the muslim side, they will then look around for the next target.

  3. Labour Party leader Chris Hipkins conceded the election on election night, but did he make the call too soon? For most of the election night, it seemed National and Act won enough seats to govern alone – but that may not be the case.

    National and Act hold 61 seats on the preliminary results, giving them enough seats to form a government and the Port Waikato by-election will likely give them another. Accounting for the byelection, the next Parliament is projected to have 121 seats instead of the usual 120 seats. That still allows the next Government to be formed on 61 seats.

    However, Te Pāti Māori’s success in the Māori electorates may create an overhang, adding an extra seat to Parliament and increasing the total number of seats to 122. The next Government will then need a minimum of 62 seats.

    National and Act’s kryptonite will be the special votes, which make up 20 per cent of the votes this year. Special votes tend to shift two seats to the left, which could leave National and Act with 60 seats, Labour, Greens, and Te Pāti Māori with 54 and New Zealand First with 8.

    Winston Peters may once again find himself in kingmaker position.

    Hipkins and Peters ruled each other out pre-election, but that was merely grandstanding. If they wish to go back on their words, they are free to do so. That opens the question, should Hipkins pick up the phone to Peters?

    Any arrangement would require the Greens and Te Pāti Māori to agree. A Labour-Greens-Te Pāti Māori-NZ First coalition would be fascinating to many and enticing to some. In a conversation, someone told me the left doing nothing is better than the right doing anything. That is what I imagine a Labour-Greens-Te Pāti Māori-NZ First coalition government would be. The value here isn’t in what they would do but rather in what they wouldn’t.

    A Labour-Greens-Te Pāti Māori coalition with NZ First may stop National’s tax cut for the wealthy, bringing back no-cause eviction, foreign property buyers and 90-day trials, thousands of job cuts in the public sector, lifting the retirement age, repealing the Fair Pay Agreements system, removal of free prescriptions and public transport discounts and abolishing of the Māori Health Authority.

    They could also stop Act’s abolishing of the Ministry for Women, Ministry for Pacific Peoples, Ministry for Ethnic Communities and the Human Rights Commission, a referendum on the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi, a reduction of sick leave from 10 to five days, freezing of minimum wages for the next three years and abolishing a public holiday.

    There is a lot at stake, but Labour working with NZ First to prevent drastic changes in the short term may debilitate the party in the long run. Labour is on shaky ground with voters after a bloodbath at the election, and working with NZ First for three more years to achieve nothing would be the final nail in their coffin.

    Working with NZ First, a party with regressive views, may cause Labour to keep bleeding. NZ First candidates made attacks on Māori and transgender people during the election. On the one hand, while working with NZ First, Labour, Greens, and Te Pāti Māori may significantly damage their reputation, they could stall or stop any of NZ First’s anti-Māori or anti-transgender proposals in government. I do not feel confident National and Act would do the same, given their empathy for anti-transgender proponent Posie Parker and unanimity in opposing co-governance.

    Labour may choose to go hands-off and allow NZ First to form a government with National and Act and hope Peters creates so much chaos, the instability of the National-Act-NZ First coalition causes them to achieve nothing. It could be Labour’s best-case scenario.
    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/shaneel-lal-weighing-the-coalition-options/6QFF37QOVJDVPNHPYVEWUXPR2M/

    I’m not sure which coalition is better. No matter what shape the coalition takes, the reality is the left lost this election. There are nightmares in both coalitions, but a part of me hopes Peters will let that phone ring.

    Shaneel Shavneel Lal (they/them) was instrumental in the bill to ban conversion therapy in New Zealand. They are a law and psychology student, model and influencer.

    • Mr Lol should fuck off back to Fiji. He’s a parasite to our country and offers nothing to us here.
      Also I don’t see why the specials take so long to report back. Voting needs to be open and honest, so the counting should be updated as results come in. There runs a risk of vote tampering for such a long time between voting day and announcing the special votes.

    • Conjecture being a waste of time.
      The Left to do little or nothing if they regain some power.
      Biggest Bull shitting Liar..! .

      So many things have been set into play, in so many ways.
      Legislation basically in play, that only needs a tweak, Order in Council, to tighten up.

      Like Ute tax increase to keep the EV subsidy the same.
      So many things to roll out, like continuing handbrake to be locked onto road speed limits.
      The unworkable wet land & Sites & Areas of Maori Significance. SAMS to be fully applied..
      Significant Natural Areas SNA to be more fully activated on all property.
      3 & 10 water systems to be fully applied.
      Medical systems to be seen to be fully prioritized into the drop of bloods.
      Much more chanting etc. at the start & end of every period to be incorporated during the school day.

      Many of us along with this lovely girl points in the direction for him to travel to .

    • Hilarious. NZ First with Labour? The hatred amongst NZ First supporters for National is string enough, but Winston would likely be lynched by his own voters should he even consider a deal with the vermin on the left (which he won’t).

      Lol is as stupid as he is vicious.

  4. Police State is now available EXCLUSIVELY on Rumble, watch now!

    Have you ever wondered if America is becoming a police state?

    In a new film, Dinesh D’Souza and Dan Bongino expose the chilling degree to which America is already there, with surveillance of citizens and mass censorship.

    “Police State” is a movie that I never wanted to make, because I never wanted America to get to a point where a movie like this needed to be made. I feel like the animal that alerts the herd to approaching danger, so we can take precautionary steps before it is too late.”

    – Dinesh D’Souza

    This weekend only, Police State is streaming exclusively on Rumble! Don’t be left in the dark.

    • Thank you Ed !
      As some people have all noted & recorded, the NZ police have knocked on doors, asking people to explain what they have posted on social media.
      NZ Armed Police have entered houses, like Dieuwe de Boer’s, disturbing a family’s evening meal, to search for an ammo magazine that simply was not there.
      What quasi institution here in New Zealand that complains & whines is driving this??

      Yet the same police will NOT turn up to a break-in burglary where the walls of house were smashed about, to try & gain access to a gun safe.

  5. Since it’s Sunday let us consider Heaven.

    When you die, it is the place you go if you are lucky enough to have selected the right religion. Once there, you will be able to spend an eternity in a Sunday School-like setting. You won’t be bothered by the likes of Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking, or Thomas Jefferson. Instead, you’ll spend your time hanging out with people like Patricia Bartlett, Graham Capill & Jim Bolger. You’ll also get to sing hymns like “Nearer my God to Thee” or “Bringing in the Sheaves.” Naturally, non-Christian music will be banned, as will sexual intercourse or inappropriate literature. Political options will be limited to the Vatican Party headed by Alopecia Jesus.

    These conditions will continue for billions of years & will probably cause you to regret your terrestrial life of piety.

    • I believe that when you die you go to a sleep that lasts forever, no dreaming nothing. Sorry as for many that heaven you speak of sounds as though it may suit many people however I’m sorry nasska I don’t believe that it is a happening thing. Think once it is over for you it is over. No one has ever come back and told us there is anything else, and you would think they would if there was a place. Those who have seen Jesus or Mary his mother are usually people who have severe mental issues. People see what they want to see at those so called holy places.

      • Good question Mcduff & best answered by the fable of the Atheist & the Christian.

        There was once an Atheist called Joseph, he didn’t believe in God and therefore realised that life had no meaning and that morality was a lie, and so lived an immoral life becoming rich by swindling Ethiopian orphans and making billions of pounds by selling children as child sex-slaves on the black market. He retired when he was thirty years old to a Mediterranean Villa where he had concubines at his beck and call, and where he could enjoy the rest of his life and do whatever he wanted with all his money which he had made.

        Living in parallel to Joseph, but not actually aware of Joseph’s existence is a Christian named Oli. Oli believed in God and went to Church every Sunday, gave generously to charity, volunteered for aid organisations and never asked for anything in return. he was always very poor as he always gave away his money and was constantly being cheated out of money by people, but he always turned the other cheek. He never had a pot to piss in, but he was happy in his belief in God.

        Both of these men are on their deathbeds. Oli, in a sudden fit of anger at God, curses God for never giving him anything in return for all his good works. This is his last living action, and because of this, Oli is sent straight to hell for denouncing God. Joseph on his deathbed, however, as he is about to die, suddenly realises God is real, the Bible is true, free will exists, Jesus worked miracles, and all evil was in God’s divine plan, and apologises for his life of selling prostitutes, running sweat-shops and making a fortune out of selling child pornography. This is his last living act, and so he goes to heaven for this.

        And that, my friends is Christian logic.

  7. “Our partners understand that if Israel doesn’t win, they will be next,” he said. “Many around the world understand well that Israel is not only fighting its war but a war for all of humanity, a war of humanity against barbarism.”

    https://www.jpost.com/breaking-news/article-77051

    I see what he did there. We aren’t next. It is already in the West thanks to mass immigration promoted by leftist Jews in a deliberate attempt to destroy Western culture. All over the world people are protesting and rioting against Israel as a result.

    The West needs to step back. Israel is not a ally and is a massive security risk to the West. Let them reap what they sowed. They can protect themselves just fine. But long term they are doomed.

  9. Digital currency isn’t safe. This hot off the press from Hamas:

    ☪️ ⚠️In light of the stifling siege that Gaza is suffering from, the cutting off of electricity, water, food, and fuel, and the interruption of the Internet and communications, the Binance platform stole the money of the people of Gaza, as it froze more than 12,000 accounts of simple people who had put their money on this platform in the hope that they would help themselves, and with At the beginning of the Israeli aggression on Gaza, Binance published lies that these accounts were for “Hamas” in order to share with the Israelis their well-known lies to facilitate the theft of Palestinian money.🇵🇸
    Under the pretext of enforcing the law, Binance is asking those who want their money from the platform to contact the “Israeli police” that kill innocent civilian women and children in Gaza, this police that was established after stealing the land of Palestine and stealing their rights.
    We ask every free person to boycott this platform, and we also ask every free person competent in the law to file an official complaint on behalf of the oppressed residents of Gaza who are subjected to genocide.🔀☪️

    Meanwhile NZ sending them millions. Strange world.

  10. After two weeks is anyone clear on what Biden’s stand is on the attack on Israel? After only a couple of minutes of Trump’s speech left NO room to misunderstand his intent when he gains the presidency again. (Trump from 38 mins)

    • Pence probably wants to turn up as a witness at some court trial to say how Trump got so many things wrong.

      In the mean time Biden is looking to go to war, to make more money, as already he handing over a lot of money to Hamas.
      Nothing personal. Just to get another round of 10% to the Big Guy.

      No word of actual “cutting the aid to Gaza” here, as Hamas only hears it may jeopardize, but the whole game is “double jeopardy”

      A good article here how it is all in double play, and pay more.

      …. And the Biden administration isn’t even expressing regret or imposing a pause on aid. ….
      https://www.frontpagemag.com/biden-sent-148-million-to-palestinian-areas-weeks-before-attack-on-israel/

      All seems to be in terms of hundreds of millions of dollars.
      This shows how many of the other Arab states, if one thinks about it, are being financed to war against Israel & who ever are considered its allies.

  13. New Zealand started with “Significant Natural Areas” SNA a few decades that District & Regional Councils could place on your property.
    Sort of in line with being smacked with a “Heritage Status” on your house or property.

    Then this year we can see the extension of that concept in “Sites & Areas of Significance to Maori”. SASM

    Then note how this is being worked in to Australia.

    …… ‘These culture police would have the right to enter people’s private property such as farms and houses in Victoria, without the owner’s permission to check to see if there has been violations of Indigenous cultural sites or heritage or land,’ Morrow said. ….
    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-12684803/Top-Aboriginal-body-slammed-push-bring-cultural-police-inspect-houses-farms-Victoria.html

    Is this to extend the areas of Parks,
    Though this is in Australia, note the fines & penalties for ignoring their rules & regulations.
    I guess there is something similiar for “One Tree Hill” “Mt Eden” and others that used to be sort of Parks in Auckland.

    … ‘General enquiries are being undertaken to investigate potential breaches, and with this in mind I would like to take this opportunity to request a conversation or email address to communicate with you to determine who may be responsible for a vehicle registered to you on specific dates,’ he wrote. ….
    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-12663817/Grampians-National-Park-climbers-fine-cultural-heritage.html

    As we know, that huts in the Urewera’s became very fiery.
    And now it seem to be creeping closer, & possibly in your house & sheds.
    It is always worked so time allows them to have an effect & creeps in closer.

    It is things like this that needs to be stopped & repealed in its tracks, nor take too long getting it sorted.
    With no supposed government, the techno-bureaucracy is now putting things into place quietly activating.

    Like demanding some one’s land for a cycle way down Motueka way, which fortunately they could not find a legal way of doing it. Like using a riparian water way right, or using some concept of a maori trail.

    Te Whatu Ora closed this matter without any discussion with me.
    I’ve always chosen to work part time in the public hospital system instead of focusing exclusively on private practice because I’m committed to remaining within the public system that provided my training.
