    • And still 26.91% of the public voted for Labour in the October Elections and 11.6% of the public voted for their other support party, the Greens in the last Elections.

      It seems 38.51% of the voters of this country think the abysmal failure of Labour and Greens policies as you have outlined above, is an absolutely fucking great set of ideas. Labour and the haggard piece of excrement that is Ardern, have a lot to answer for, by changing this country into the sad and divided place it now is. Possibly bugger all will change under the lot coming in, as I hold little hope that there will be much of a change in direction and taking us back to being the best place in the world to live, as it once was.

      • you missed the point really hooli.
        Ther are 38.51% of Kiwis who are grateful for the taxpayers largess and and are very pleased with all the money Labour passed their way.
        They now have very happy comfortable lives at the taxpayers expense but that wo’t stop them whinging and moaning and wanting more.

        • V2. it is too early for me to think clearly this morning. Probably as I am in fear and trepidation of having to go out, in a few minutes, to the Kakahi Valley and parts of the Waitaanga’s and have 60kms of clay and Papa roads after a weekend’s rain and the shit that is currently falling from the sky this morning. This fear has clouded my thinking.

          You are of course, right.

      • The 38.51% at least in Wellington are going to get exactly what the asked for – big rate rises, lower council services, fewer fixed potholes drinking and wastwater issues and higher unemployment as incompetent, arrogant bureacrates discover what their real worth is as they stand in line at WINZ. Enjoy it r soles, if three years is not enough continue to vote Labour/Greens and your dreams will come trues or maybe you will find them nightmares,

      Scaring the shit out of the population with a fake pandemic
      Locking up the population for months at a time destroying small businesses and the economy
      Forcing a poisonous medication on the population and destroying many more lives
      Undermining faith in the medical authorities and doctors.

  2. Israel has now confirmed that the order was given to fire on any vehicles and houses where Hamas was believed to be, regardless of if Israeli civilians may have been there. Helicopter gunships fired hundreds of rounds at vehicles, people and structures. They basically shot at anything that moved. That is why there were so many burnt out cars and homes. That is why there was so much heavy weapon damage in the footage.

    Many of the dead were in fact killed by the IDF. This has been reported in Israeli media but not in our propaganda sources. It has been confirmed by Israeli survivors who were eye witnesses, and the IDF itself. I could see something wasn’t right from the original footage. The damage clearly wasn’t from hand held weapons of the type used by Hamas.

      • Here’s another one ^

        Thousands of rants about the vax and and other stuff – no worries. A few posts on a topical matter “Obsessed”

        The truth is you have to attack the messenger as you have nothing else. That is simply because your bigoted beliefs are contradicted by reality. You have no rational or moral basis at all.

        • No the truth is we don’t really care for your propaganda and stuff. Its an age old religious war that won’t be solved until someone drops a nuclear bomb on the scruffy piece of desert and rids the world of its unimportance to the rest of the world.
          Same for that bit of ground in the middle of Rome.

          • No Vicky that is not the reason. It is not propaganda. It was admitted by the IDF. It is reality.

            But here’s the thing – Why is that’s not your response to the hundreds of posts calling out muslim wrongs?

            Why didn’t you say that on the “Cowardly Hamas” thread?

            • I tend to agree with you on this Kea. There is no doubt that the Palestinian Leadership is inhuman but that doesn’t make everything that Israel does ok. If the reports are true which seems likely I can see no justification for the IDF killing their own citizens along with the Hamas terrorists.

        • Both Israel and Hamas have committed acts we do no support but Hamas had no current reason to launch an attack on Israeli civilians or commit attrocities some still to be independtly verified. Israel believes in an eye for eye a tooth for a tooth so Hamas should not be surpirsed by Israels reaction, it may be excessive to some but not unexpected. It is unsurprising no Arab country wants Palestinian refugees whoses history has to been to break rule of international law and use peace as an opportunity to rebuild in preparation for a repeat onslaught Araab neighbours seem to regard them as unwanted proven trouble makers. As their publically stated intention to wipe Isreal and Jews off the map, when Israel adopts similar perceived policiy don’t bitch when the other side plays you game and rules.

  3. The Wellington house that lost $400,000

    The seller of a Hataitai property in Wellington lost more than $400,000 on the deal, before real estate agent commissions are taken into account.

    It was followed by a Nile St, Nelson property that was sold for $1.425m in September but had been bought for $1.81m two years earlier, a loss of $385,000.

  4. Morning Troopers.

    Hipkins is a prick.

    “One person who is impatient for negotiations to conclude is Prime Minister Chris Hipkins.

    Hipkins briefly took off his caretaker Prime Minister hat on Sunday to make a call in his capacity as Labour leader for a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war.

    He said he had sought approval of the National Party to make that call as caretaker Prime Minister, but National had not granted that approval. Ordinarily, the matter would have ended there, but Hipkins said that it was untenable for him to stand by and watch the horrific scenes we are witnessing without calling for a ceasefire.

    Hipkins said he had discussed the call with Labours caucus, many of whom feel a deep sense of injustice over the conflict.

    Despite the international ambit of Hipkins statement, it had a strong subtext of domestic politics. Hipkins tactfully criticised how long National had taken to form a government, saying that as there was no end in sight to negotiations, he needed to make a statement as Labour leader.

    Its been five weeks. I would have articulated the Labour Partys position earlier, but I have been caretaker Prime Minister, Hipkins said.

    I conceded the election over five weeks ago. My boxes were packed several weeks ago. We are ready to hand over the keys just as soon as the incoming Government are ready to sort themselves out and do that, he said.

    National quickly shot back, saying they had only been consulted on the ceasefire call on Friday, and were only warned of Hipkins press conference four minutes before it began.

    A National Party spokesman said the party was approached about the ceasefire on Friday and asked to see Mfat [Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade] advice on the matter – we provided feedback on that advice and indicated we were open to a discussion with Labour on it.

    The spokesman said National supports a ceasefire but that conditions are not yet ready for one.”

  5. Kust occasionally the lying pricks get their just deserts.
    ya gotta luv this justice.

    A bear in Polands Carpathian Mountains has mauled an eco-activist who was trying to prove the animals lair was abandoned due to logging.

    The German was airlifted to hospital following the attack and was said to be in a serious but stable condition.

    He had travelled to the bears den alongside another activist from the Wild Carpathians Initiative to check if the area had been affected by logging.

    The pair had expected the lair to be empty but the animal pursued them through the woods. The activist stumbled and fell before being mauled.

    • I think domestic airfares for two staff on two occasions is a drop in the bucket when you consider the entire parliament is still being paid salary even though we effectively have no government. Only the cleaning staff and mail room should still be paid – everyone else should be on unpaid home leave until we have a consensus between blue/black and yellow (or pink, or whatever colour Act have now decided to be).

  7. The Farmers Son

    The farmer and his wife had worked hard, scrimped and saved to send their son to college.

    As soon as he had enrolled, he started to grow a beard.

    Next he grew a large moustache and sideburns.

    Being pleased with his new facial adornment, he had his picture taken and sent it off to his parents.

    On the back of the photo he scrawled “How do you like it? Don’t I look like a count?”

    Shortly after, the son received this terse note:

    “You idiot, it cost us a fortune to send you to college, and you can’t even spell!”

  8. I sent this podcast link to my ex kiwi wife, I just loved this guy he is a real face of Rotorua, I lived and worked there in the nineties.
    It was a real experience, ran Video stores, Budget and Avis Rental Cars, wife had baked potato shop, and Laundromat.
    Hire cars gave me the biggest laughs in life, like the customer that left two large bags of wacky tobaccey in the boot, the guy that hired a car for the day to go to a tangi, had it a year. I loved the experience and the memories.
    I sent this to my sons and ex this morning I hope you enjoy, a few of my memories of Rotorua
    My ex owned THE baked Spud store in Rotorua that was a little gold mine, the only mistake she made was that she hired a nice young lass who pretended to be my exe’s friend, she stole thousands of dollars from her, the guy that bought the business from the ex, caught her and convicted her.
    She was very well built, and many thousands of dollars were shipped out in that intermammary sulcus.
    Those mammary glands more than likely felt a shitload of cash passing through
    This guy in podcast just so typical of Rotorua, I enjoyed it immensely
    Had a Maiori run into the back of a car I was driving once, he got out and yelled a little bit touchy on the brakes Bro.
    Another great story was I was giving a young Maori a serve in one of the video stores for bringing a playstation back 3 weeks late, it started to get heated and he called me a racist bastard, a Maori Lady of huge proportions, yelled out from the back of the line, He can be a bastard but he definitely isn’t a racist. Now piss off out of here.The little idiot shut his mouth immediately.

    Oh the memories love to have a hair cut with this guy.

  9. Plunket’s dilemma.
    Now he knows what the unvaxxed have been subjected to.

    Sean Plunket
    @SeanPlunket
    A cardiologist at Wellington Hospital has called me a hateful scumbag Zionist. I am due to have a cardiac procedure there in the near future. I dont want to dox him but I do feel concerned that he may not be able to put his strong religious views aside if he is treating me. What should I do?

    Let me clarify he made these comments on a Facebook post of my views on the Islamic Federation on The Platform. Because they were personal and extreme I checked his profile only to discover where he worked.

      Finally Sean Plunket is being moved, to reflect where others have been told to shut it & accept it.
      Still it is all about him.
      But we have to make the most of where anything cracks open to expose the tin of worms.

      That runs systemically through our hospitals.
      I have come across that about 5 years ago, and thought that one male nurse was an actual danger, in how he skipped through some medical procedures.
      Then quietly confirmed which country he came from, and how he related in his arrogance to other female nurses.

      At the time it was a battle for me to get through things, so was not quite up to recording or making a complaint about things.
      As it would just be come based on my observations & no other witnesses.

      Locking the Face book, tweets, etc,, was well done by Hamas, as they took a leaf out of Osama bin Ladens book on how to remain on the down low.
      Today I really noticed that, on a certain cult which has a world wide hold, including NZ, which seems to have dived to the ground, since 2019 in NZ. Most strange.
      It is not part of the NZ Islamic Federation, though it was acknowledged. ….. hmmmm …..
      Not acknowledged as activism, but proven to set up to give others the arrows.

      Keep on digging Sean, there are others!
      All to be “welcomed” by “UN Global Migration Pact” where in that agreement is that migration is not to be talked about so much by the mainstream media.

    • While we were distracted.

      Global leaders and high-level representatives from 11 First-Mover countries gathered yesterday for the official launch of the 50-in-5 campaign. This ambitious, country-led campaign heralds a new chapter in the global momentum around digital public infrastructure (DPI) an underlying network of components such as digital payments, ID, and data exchange systems, which is a critical accelerator of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

      50-in-5 underscores the unified commitment of participant countries to work together to implement safe and inclusive DPI. This country-led campaign is in collaboration with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Centre for Digital Public Infrastructure, Co-Develop, the Digital Public Goods Alliance, and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and is supported by GovStack, the Inter-American Development Bank, and UNICEF.

  11. The senior doctors at North Shore and Waitkere hospitals have written to their bosses this month, pleading again for a dedicated security guard.

    Their union said on a single day earlier this year a doctor was punched, a patient in a wheelchair was punched and police brought in a man in a spithood but security often had to come from elsewhere in the hospital.

    In the letter, the doctors, known as SMOs, said the violence and aggression experienced by front-line staff was getting worse.

  12. ‘Michael Bakers Clown World: Do New Zealanders Want This?’
    (Courtesy of The Daily Examiner NZ)

    Although somewhat long, this article by ‘Doctors Speaking Out With Science (NZSOS)’ will no doubt be of interest.

    One has to wonder exactly how much Dr Baker is being paid to promote such ideas – and by whom…

    • Plausible; like making Gaza another beachside Riviera etc… on Mediterranean.
      All the oil & gas to be developed.
      but other things may be the fly in the ointment.

      After the 1967 war, Israel possessed the Sinai Peninsula.
      Even looked to trading that back to Egypt, which said NO just before the 1973 attack by Egypt.

      ….. Israel retained possession of the Sinai, but later, in 1978, Egypt entered into a deal resembling Meirs proposal as a result of the Camp David Accords, and over the next few years the entire Sinai was returned to Egypt. ,,,,
      https://www.timesofisrael.com/golda-meir-offered-egypt-part-of-sinai-for-peace/

      That Egypt peace agreement came at a big oily price to Israel

      …. This is a lot more than Israel would have received had it not pushed ahead with Alma.
      Without the oil card to play, Israel would have received no oil guarantee at all. Furthermore, Egypt agreed to let Israel pump water from El Tur oasis around the tip of the Sinai to its military bases at Sharm Al-Sheikh and the Israeli-built town of Ophira, which Israel will occupy until March 1982.

      https://www.washingtonpost.com/archive/politics/1979/11/25/israel-losing-crucial-oil-source-to-egyptians/8f8acf45-5628-419a-8e57-872be720ba11/

      There may be a need for a new Canal but.. …. but every one talks about how Israel will gain so much in oil & gas fields.
      Potential, when unknown is very difficult to weigh up in price. So many others would also spot it.
      Or perhaps Hamas knows this, but wants to be dog in a manger, plus it is protecting its source of Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt?

      So what about all the money flow, to Hamas, to ISIS, to Muslim Brotherhood, etc.. plus all the military supplies to the Middle East.
      From the UN to UNRWA, collecting what seems as much from Canada, USA, EU, UK, Germany, France, Australia & NZ etc..

        What is your view on the violence against German “settlers” in Poland on land that was traditionally and historically German? And I don’t mean 3000 years ago according to unhinged religious fables.

    https://www.1news.co.nz/2023/11/20/anti-vax-gp-issued-282-dodgy-covid-vaccine-exemptions/
    A former GP issued nearly 300 dodgy medical certificates claiming patients were unsuitable for the Covid-19 vaccine, an investigation has found.

    The certificates were issued by the anti-vax doctor in late 2021 after health authorities mandated the vaccine for certain jobs and activities amid the Delta outbreak of Covid-19.

    Canterbury doctor Jonie Girouard was first exposed for issuing the certificates in December 2021 as part of a hidden camera investigation by Newshub.

    • Part of how New Zealand signed up to
      UN Global Migration Pact.
      The media have to suppress any negative, wondering commentary on the migration flows

      pg 24/34 : OBJECTIVE 17: Eliminate all forms of discrimination and promote evidence-based public
      discourse to shape perceptions of migration

      c) Promote independent, objective and quality reporting of media outlets,
      including internet based information,
      including by sensitizing and educating media professionals on migration-related issues and terminology,
      investing in ethical reporting standards and advertising,
      and stopping allocation of public funding or material support to media outlets that systematically promote intolerance,
      xenophobia, racism and other forms of discrimination towards migrants,
      in full respect for the freedom of the media

      https://refugeesmigrants.un.org/sites/default/files/180713_agreed_outcome_global_compact_for_migration.pdf

      There is the great “kindness” & “well being” in the section from a to g.
      Who defines what is xenophobia? intolerance? based on what? a complaint?
      That is what Winston Peters signed New Zealand up to ! ! !

      Part of a plan? Couden-hove Kalergi Plan?
      People who raise that are cancelled by mainstream.
      But one has to search a fair bit to find it is still very active in Europe, with prizes, scholarships. etc.. that a number of people have won like Merkel as they are in full compliance.

  15. What is a Fascist? Is it limited to Westerners?

    “Therein lies the great contradiction of fascism. On an individual level, fascists may seem pleasant, courteous, even brave, they may have Jewish, Black, or Asian friends. Yet, they would happily send their friends ethnic groups to the camps. They see no irony or contradiction in this.” – Ana Luciana II

    Is the author implying that blacks or Asians cannot be fascists?

    • Benito Mussolini is the only fascist I know of. He was from a socialist family, the editor of a socialist newspaper and invented fascism out of frustration at the slow speed of attaining socialism and equality. It is 100% a left ideology.

      He did not preach hate of Jews or any of that other nonsense you’ve been fed. He had a Jewish mistress for 27 years. He had to play along with Hitlers Socialist Workers Party though, for the greater good.

      Even the internet is stuffed. Search results are just msm activism. Things I used to find are gone. YouTube censorship is beyond a joke with even educational things blurred out and restricted. Ordinary words will get you demonetized. The internet is now a conduit of brainwashing.

  16. The New Zealand Red Cross says it has now committed nearly $24 million of the $28 million Fund to supporting people affected by Cyclone Gabrielle and other severe weather events earlier this year.

    The Fund is still focused on our long-term programme helping people to move back home or into new homes through the Red Cross Home Bundles initiative.

    Weve also started our Resilience Investment Programme, which is providing grants to help ensure communities are better prepared for another emergency event. The Partnerships Grants Programme is closed after distributing $14.7 million to community organisations, the NZ Red Cross said in a statement.
