  1. Congratulations to the imbeciles. who
    AGAIN voted for the proven charlatan
    Winston Peters. A career, ‘bauble seeking’,
    prick, whose main, and only interest is himself.

    Go and celebrate with a blue-rinse
    session at your local hairdresser.

    • Mikey, come on Mikey it’s not a bad effort considering how hard it must be for he/she to carry on with his/her job while transitioning from what to what ,my best guess is Obrien is edging towards a transition to a titless skinny 14 year old boy.
      That bastard is going to be a thorn in the side of progress in this country all in an effort to raise her/his profile.

    • Well for anyone with any intelligence she was never anyone worth listening too.
      She craves attention and will do whatever it takes to find the source that will get her that attention so she can feed it to you and she will say anything that gets your attention.

      Here a bit from Tony Abbot that I was about to post. Again about another silly little girl attention seeker and their followers.

      Former Australian Prime Minister, Tony Abbott, on the ‘Greta Thunberg generation’ and net zero.

      “Unfortunately its a pretty crazy world that follows a teenager who hasn’t spent enough time at school, frankly. I mean, really and truly, if we are going to follow a guru, lets find a better guru than that.

      Now, one of our difficulties is that too many of our youngsters have had a propagandised education, which has been heavy on climate scares and light on history, light on the great books, light on an appreciation of all the things that have made our societies strong.

      We cannot achieve net zero without impoverishing our societies. These are massive hits on our wellbeing, and given that climate is by no means the only peril we face, its not even the most serious peril we face.

      One day this whole climate fixation, this whole emissions obsession will be discredited. I just hope we don’t have to suffer a great deal before then”.

  2. Having just read Don Brash’s letter on the coalition agreement if 50% of the three stooges promises come to fruition I’ll be impressed ,unfortunately I’ve been around for long enough to expect disappointment from politicians.
    It’s different this time as our country is in a make or break period of history where the 3 stooges either fix it or fcuk it, I genuinely have some optimism after listening to the speeches by the 2 of them Seeless and Nude Nut, Peters is not the great speaker he was even 10 years ago his combative stance with our crap leftist media isn’t going to help with the countrys recovery ,they’ll just make up shit to make him look bad, time will tell.

  3. Well the liar party promised to allow us to see what the coalition agreement was all about but we never saw that and I received it in its full glory this morning /last night I don’t know when as I didn’t look at my emails last night . So that is a good start I thought. Yes we have seen it all before and they have plenty to do and no doubt the press both paper social media and TV will be holding their feet to the fire over what they have agreed to. Winstone got us the covid inquiry and lots of other things ACT got us some movement on the Waitangi so called agreement and lots of other things and. national got some movement on taxes then ?????????, Yep Winston is grumpy with the press and who would not be after their sucking up to the liarbor party for 6 freaking long years. It is well time that someone was tough on them and to be honest I LIKE it. I see promise and we will see what it brings to New Zealand after 6 years of communist rule brings. I feel hopeful for the first time since the mad bitch took over 6 damn long years ago.
    Have a great day today the sky is blue and promises to be fine???? Be careful out there the police ministers have not changed the rules yet!!!!!!!!!! Coster is still police commissioner anything can happen.

    • Lizzie, unlike the weasel Ardern who did promise to release the Coalition Agreement Labour and NZ First made in 2017 and then never did, at least this Mob have done so, something Luxon promised.

      And by doing so, they have set some targets, unlike the attention seeking snake Ardern, where everything was aspirational. If this Coalition does not meet or get well down the road to achieving these targets by the next Election, they can rightfully have their feet held to the fire. But what I like, is that this Coalition, is looking to the long term betterment of this country and have left somethings open on which to campaign for in the next election and so keep the country moving, positively.

      I too am somewhat pleased at what I heard and am somewhat hopeful. I trust I am not to be, disappointed.

      • We still have a lot of God botherers there in the Nats. and as we know from the past they are slippery bastards with no principles other than appeasing their followers.
        We still need to watch them.

        As for the regurgitation of Collins as Justice, well she failed that last time and should be sent to pasture.

        I guess the money she collects is what matters.

        I caught a bit of radio interview with Bennet. She is encouraged by the negotiations. Only heard about a minute so if someone finds it probably worth a listen.

        There have been 2 women that have been standouts in the last 40 years when it comes to child youth, benefits etc. Christine Rankin and Paula Bennet.
        Hopefully the new Minister will get them two in the office and empower them to kick arse in the toughest job in NZ.
        Its not the people its the system and the abuse of the system.
        Sending some of the mad and bad bastrds to jail forever will tend to sort a few problems so long as Collins doesn’t stop them again. Drop some of them down the Takaka holes Kea is visiting today. Never be seen on the world again.
        Peterson says that 3 % of people are born that way, bad, never to be retrieved. For our population of 5.5 million that means there are around 165000 that should be locked in a prison forever.
        20% of that three percent are insanely made or evil. Thats 33000 that need euthanizing. you mat well know a few of them.

        currently.
        “Prisons in New Zealand can currently house up to 9020 inmates, that’s down from the usual 9561 because they haven’t got enough staff. There are currently 583 prison beds vacant around the country.17 Apr 2023”

        So a long way to go to restore disciple and decency to many and make our country safe that we don’t need a gestapo police force.

        Thought I would ask how many permant residents in our jails. got the ministry website which makes for an interesting read.

        • Heard someone speaking on those who work in child welfare, may have been Christine Rankin? Said those attracted to the care of vulnerable children are more often attracted to the power and control they can hold over those childrens’ lives. Instead of helping keep them safe they turn a blind eye and leave the kids in dangerous situations then rush around looking important in the aftermath. Explains Oranga Tamariki and all those dead kids already known to the “system”.

  4. Commentators, Reporters, Political Reporters, should be insightful, investigative, thought provoking and intelligent.

    Tova O’Brien proves she is none of those, with this utter juvenile garbage.

    “Step aside “Bennifer”, “Brangelina” and “Kimye” – there’s a new celebrity super-marriage in town.

    And Luxon, Peters and Seymour – or “Lupesey” as they’re soon-to-be affectionately known in Wellywood.”

    If that is the quality of Stuff’s Chief Political Correspondent work, then both Stuff and the country are very poorly served indeed. I know there will be the critics who say why bother looking at Stuff or reading O’Brien, Well I periodically do, for the same reason theses same critics look at other publications seeking information. But one does have to wonder why a publication would bother to publish inane garbage like this, from someone who by using the word “Chief” in their description of her, publishes such childish shit. One surely would expect better quality.

    If O’Brien thinks she is going to be remembered for coining a childish name for the Leaders of this or any Government, disappointment is coming her way as people as a whole are more intelligent than she gives them credit for.

  5. And they say NZ has a problem if forming a coalition. lol, 🙂
    In Holland do not be surprized, even if Gert Wilders does form a Coalition, be might not even be in Cabinet.

    HUUUGE 🇳🇱
    https://youtu.be/NQJrYhqzeyo
    9 mins 16 secs : November24, 2023 : Paul Joseph Watson

    It is only a toss up of a trend, as it a number of other parties of “No Wilders” have to be in the Coalition.
    Any way an interesting take as others are looking to throw their toys out of the cot.

    In NZ, the cards have been dealt, and so we need to play well with the hand we have got.
    To push more through Hobson’sPledge, StopCoGovernance, GroundSwell, TaxPayer’sUnion, FreeSpeech, & whatever way we can, to show there is support & even further, to reaffirm their resolve, to stop forms of appeasement.
    To counter the wailing & the hindrance of the Unions, Public Service lobbies etc..

    • There are ways to knobble the unions and make them effective doing what they should.
      Mostly they see their role as fund managers for the Labour Party.
      Remove their ability to do that without specific clear consent from each member and then see how they go.
      That donation should be above their fees for the role they play.
      Same of course goes for others so lets be fair.
      Famers groups Green Peace Groups , Maori groups, manufacturers groups and so on.

      If the goal; is transparency and Democracy then that is where we start.

  6. kea, i must thank you for mentioning 308s the other night and making me realise how much of a dull stupid boy ive been cuz ive been just work work work lately.
    anyways yesterday morning i had a cant be arsed moment and decided to take a day off work, slaved at home most of the day then took lil sb, my dog and the trusty 308 for a hunt.
    went to an old haunt of mine on doc land, deer farking everywhere. didnt even get the quad unloaded and 3 dumb deer made an appearence 100m away… boom.
    cruised up the hill on the quad then went for a stroll, plenty of deer on opposite face so we dropped down through the tussock n scrub and got within 250m.. boom boom… then a gutbuster back up the bloody hill with 2 deers worth of back wheels and backsteaks.
    loaded the quad on the trailer and started heading home, spied 2 yearlings on a clearing 400m away…. boom.
    gave the last one away to some good old bastards on the piss at the hut.

    awsome arvo for sb and lil sb 🙂 todays mission will be butchering lessons for the kids!
    looking forward to getting some salami and veni pies made too, yum!

  7. what parties policy was this that got put in the deal?
    “Work to replace fuel excise taxes with electronic road user charging for all vehicles, starting with electric vehicles.”

    yea evs need to pay ruc but the “electronic road user charges” is a bit of over reach isnt it? so eventually every car in nz will have an eroads type thing tracking their every move?
    the skeptic and conspiracy nut in me just imagines a nanny/police state scenario where the eroads type monitoring will automatically issue speeding fines and congestion charges etc.

    • Its the canoe companies attenpt to introduce peak charging as they have in Singapore. Its the socialists who want to make ratepayers pay for fucking buses rather than the users of the buses. You can bet they will make them exempt rather then dergulationg the bus controls that we all suffer from and subsidise to make about 3 companies fat.
      Mostly bus companies are overseas owned these days.

      Tolley & co have been trying hard to get it going here so it’s a Nat. policy iI would seem because they have Town Plannng masters who like big buildings in CBD’s rather than spreading workplaces around the district. 1900’s thinking.

      As I said above ya can’t trust the god botherers.

      • I have no problem with the God botherers at least they are not Muslims who could turn your country in a minute like London or the Gaza where all sorts of crap is happening. Maybe you can’t always trust them but some of them you can and there will be rules that one of the ruling parties put in place that we don’t like but that is the way of democracy. You can’t always get what you want Viking so be grateful that liarbor greens and the Maori party are no longer in power.

          They’d love to but they currently don’t have the numbers. Deep inside most Godnutters is the desire to return NZ to the Christianity saturated 1950s.

            —————————-
            Where the pedos thrived in the Christian schools in the 50s 60s and 70s
            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Royal_Commission_of_Inquiry_into_Abuse_in_Care#Faith-based_institutions

            St Patricks College, Silverstream was pedo central; and when caught there, the creeps were sent to places like Tonga and Philippines as well as AU and UK.
            Pedos running pedos as several of the headmasters were in on it.
            Christians …my arse.
            And they loved the arse.

            You have to be a few sandwiches short of a picnic to not have been aware of the abuse ; also in:-
            -Disabled, deaf, and mental health institution care
            -State foster care
            -Lake Alice Psychiatric Hospital
            -Marylands School, Christchurch

            It was all around and people were talking about it but doing nothing.
            The NZ way.
            lets talk about rugby, eh.
            Add in ordinary hospitals; creeps would work as night porters and orderlies to fill their weird cravings. A fella I knew- was at school with my brother, academically able- but worked as a night orderly at Hutt hospital after leaving school.

            Initially the inquiry was not going to cover the religious lot.
            As usual they try to avoid all responsibility.
            Time to remove tax free zones for religious outfits.
            There is bugger all evidence of these lot doing ‘good works’ post 1950

  8. Well I for one am hugely optimistic about the new government. I wasn’t keen to have Winston on board, but it might be for the better, and he’s teamed up with Seymour to deal to the maorification issues. And it will be fun watching him beat up on the media (reposted from last night)

    The sheer volume of policy they’ve managed to get through is impressive, and they’ve laid it all out for all to see. Unlike the previous “most open and transparent government”. Given the amount of horse-trading that’s had to go on in the process it’s a bloody massive achievement that they got it over the line in the time that they did. I hope that silences some of the critics.

    Going through the policy docs, which I’ve skimmed now, there’s not a lot I don’t agree on. If they pull it off, it goes far beyond what I could have hoped for, and will go a long way to getting our once great country back on track. It’s hard to fathom how much damage has been wrought in six years. I hope that failed experiment will be long-remembered and never repeated. But people have short memories.

    Single exception is I am disappointed the firearms register isn’t gone on day one.

    • Saggy its not the last 6 years, it goes way back to Bolgers reign when the god botherers and the first people got in control.
      None since have made a radical difference and with luck, this might turn out to be as good as the reforms that Roger Douglas did before the Pope interfered with that path.
      Time will tell.
      But the God botherers never sleep so don’t trust the bastards.
      Tax their activities would be a place to start and if the govt. needs more money ?start with their charities. All of them
      didn’t see that anywhere in the fine print.

    When you red this remember who wanted this changed and people like Collins and co opposed it.

    “This guy has got inside my head. The law needs to change because this is happening way too often. There has to be harsher sentences.”

    Kelly joins a growing list of people who’ve called for tougher penalties for one-punch or one-hit killings.

    The proposed Crimes (Coward Punch Causing Death) Amendment Bill, introduced to Parliament in 2018 by National MP Matt King, would have done just that by creating a new offence of assault causing death carrying a maximum penalty of 20 years’ imprisonment.

    Thank you, Matt King.
    Disgrace to those that opposed.

Be grateful for what you have got at the moment, it looks like a half decent government by the agreement that has been sent to most and is apparently open surrounding their discussions.
      We will see what pans out and I am sure most people here and other sites will have plenty to say if they do not stick to their agreement.

        Long way to go yet if you could only see past the tinsel of the XMAS PARTY.

        RINSE AND REPEAT HAS BEEN THE NORM IN NZ FOR A LONGTIME. LABOUR WILL BE BACK WITH ITS GREENS AND ALL AND JUST REVERSE THE GAINS AS BOTH LOTS HAVE ALWAYS DONE.

    • for goodness sake Viking – Give it a Rest.
      I have taken down my Democracy New Zealand Matt King billboard from my fence on October 13th after 363 days. For whatever reason, and there are several, it just did not gell with the voters. Thankfully a number of those polices have been picked up by other Parties who are now in power and can do something about it. The widening of the scope around the Covid/Vaccination enquiry is one which I am personally very pleased with. The death of my brother following two jabs is enough of a reason.
      You also appear not to have noticed from the announcements of policy intentions yesterday.
      “Introduce the Coward Punch legislation which will create a specific offence for anyone who injures or kills someone with a coward punch.”
      Great, National through Matt King introduced it, Labour/Greens killed it. This time it will go through.
      Roll on the new Government – the start has been very encouraging and long may it continue. lets see how the first 100 days goes and then the first 18 months.

        THAT YOU ALL GET YOUR PANTIES IN A TWIST OVER THAT IS UNBELIEVABLE.

        I get that you are ashamed to have got it wrong and that’s your choice. Attacking me for reminding you that the source of the legislation wasn’t those who are copying it and will probably water it down, (yes they will). ( and attempt to take credit for it in the next election.).
        Get over yourselves.
        Some you changed your mind more times than your underpants before the election.
        Oh and I haven’t all day to read the fine print like those of you who do nothing but spend your day here. Might tonight.

  11. So, I’m trying to decide if Maori will march on parliament. I think they will (?) along with other malcontents who have just seen their swipe cards to their little taxpayer funded fiefdoms revoked.

    I’m guessing it will be a three pronged approach:

    1- Protests.
    2- Political and bureaucratic sabotage.
    3- Civil disobedience.

    I hope this isn’t the case because watching the news last night I had no idea the depth of reforms proposed. For example Maori wards being repealed.

    Charge anaesthetic technician Katherine Hepworth (also spelled as Cathie, Catharine and Cathy), who is a high ranking union delegate for New Zealand Anaesthetic Technician Society (NZATS), went on leave earlier this year after The Press reported a rash of resignations in the department.

    Like all “unions” they should be disbaned. same for a lot of other orgs if this type.
    They will be extracting fees that will go to the Labour Party.

    • She is a toxic slag who single handed brought the Christchurch Hospital operating theatres to a near standstill for months as a result of nearly every anaesthetic technician leaving due to her unique style of management. The hospital management should have taken out a lawsuit against her for the damage she has done to the health of South Island folk but in usual NZ style, she will probably get a pay out for hurty feelings.

      • They should have put her through the process of dealing with these issues and then she would be gone. Take away all her privileges, ban her from the properties and forget to pay her. Get tough with shit like that.
        It’s not easy but it works much better than retaining toxic people.
        The rest of the staff do not like weak bosses and those that put up with people behaving badly. It undermines their confidence in their bosses.

        Doesn’t say much for their HR people. Perhaps they need to have a hard look at that leadership.

      It is not so often any of this even rates an article.
      So much is kept on the down-low, then blurred with mythology.
      Yet this discovery & analyses seems to have even a benefit of understanding maori genetics that can in part help their health problems.

      If a more recent find in the North Island, can you see the takeover as being shown up the worst of the worst for archaeological cover ups are the maoris.

    • There was a story that the late Noel Hilliard former Curator of the Dargaville Museum used to tell of large numbers of human bones being dug up and ground for fertilizer. Purportedly the maori were not concerned as they were “not our people”.
      Not sure where or when this was but may have been somewhere around Kaipara.

  13. One day the A817 was visiting Glasgow, and it found a nice-looking pub to spend the evening in. Unbeknownst to our protagonist, the pub was rougher than it looked.

    First thing that happened, the doors burst open, and a four-lane motorway stomped in. The various A- and B-roads hurriedly got out of its way, and it went up to the bar. “I’m the M8,” it said in a rough Lowlands accent. “Gimme a pint of snakebite.”

    The bartender gave the M8 a pint, but it had hardly started to drink when the doors burst open again, and a six-lane motorway pushed its way in. It hard-shouldered the cringing M8 out of its way, and announced in a coarse south-side Glaswegian accent: “I’m the M74. Gimme a pint of cider and black, ya bas.”

    The bartender had barely drawn the cider into the glass, when the door opened quietly, and a weedy little “road” came in: green, with only one white stripe. It approached the bar, and the A817 was bemused when both the M8 and the M74 cringed out of the way, trying to make themselves look as small as possible.

    “What’s going on,” whispered the A817 to the cowering M8, as the strange weedy road sat by the bar and ordered a Guinness. “Big tough motorway like you, afraid of a wee thing like that?”

    “Aye mate,” said the M8, “I’m a big tough motorway. But yon’s a f*cking cyclepath.”

  14. A long distance rumble

    Police warn of gang disruption between Auckland and Foxton
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2023/11/25/police-warn-of-gang-disruption-between-auckland-and-foxton/
    Police have warned of disruptions between Auckland and Foxton as gang members hold a funeral for a senior member, and say officers will be targeting illegal behaviour.
    William “Bird” Hines was a prominent leader in the Head Hunters. In 2017 he was sentenced to more than 18 years prison for manufacturing and supplying methamphetamine and for firearms offences.

    Police said they will monitor gang movements associated with Hines funeral, but warned motorists to expect delays on the roads during the coming days.

    Assistant Commissioner Mike Johnson said additional resources were being called in “to target illegal behaviour and to mitigate disruption to the public as much as possible”.

    “Police anticipate these movements to be between Auckland and Foxton. It is also anticipated that other groups will head north to Foxton from southern regions.”

    • Thanks WG, very interesting, especially when Rodney explained the reality of some of the appointments. I agree with him that NZF and ACT had huge wins in each of their agreements and at the end of the day that is the really important thing. If the National appointed Ministers drag their feet on implementing the changes we, the voting public, will see it and be able to “point the finger” and hopefully find a way to hold them to account, some how.

  17. RIVER OF FREEDOM congratulates incoming government on plans for COVID-19 inquiry

    The creators of the RIVER OF FREEDOM film wish to congratulate the incoming government for its promise to undertake an inquiry into the handling of the COVID-19 pandemic as a “matter of urgency”. We understand that all COVID-19 vaccine mandates still in operation will be ended, and the inquiry will focus on vaccine procurement and efficacy as well as the use of multiple lockdowns and the social and economic impacts on both regional and national levels, and whether the decisions made, and steps taken, were justified.

    “We want to broaden the terms of the COVID inquiry so that it considers more things,” incoming Prime Minister Christopher Luxon told reporters today announcing his coalition deal with ACT and NZ First. “It’s going to include a range of topics including social but also economic impacts as well.”

    In December, then Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced a Royal Commission of Inquiry into New Zealand’s COVID-19 response, but it was not to include decisions by clinicians, or vaccine efficacy, in its probe. NZ First leader and incoming Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters campaigned on holding a more wide-ranging probe into the pandemic response.

    We hope that our incoming coalition government fully accept and acknowledge the negative effects of vaccine mandates enforcing ‘No Jab, No Job; the divisive introduction of vaccine passes; and most importantly, the overwhelming number of vaccine injuries and ongoing medical repercussions. These conditions address many of the requests by protestors during their 23 day occupation of Parliament in February and March 2022 as highlighted in the RIVER OF FREEDOM film.

    The incoming government has also agreed to repealing the Therapeutic Products Act, and ensuring a ‘National Interest Test’ is undertaken before New Zealand accepts any agreements from the United Nations, and its agencies, which limit national decision-making. The Government will reconfirm that New Zealand’s domestic law holds primacy over any international agreements.

    However, it appears that the incoming government has not yet agreed to review the safety of the Pfizer vaccine, or address how the vaccine injured and those mandated out of employment will be compensated. And according to the Coalition Agreement between the National Party and the ACT Party, there is a plan to “liberalise genetic engineering laws”.

    • Posted this the other day,
      A number of good points showing the politicians did know of the vaxx problems, but how they rode rough shod over the science in so many ways.

      The largest medical vaccination scandal has been confirmed by the equally failing EMA (European Medicines Agency). The EMA has provided brief answers to a number of important questions about the corona vaccines.
      Startling answers that do not contradict what some politicians and round table doctors proclaim !!

      https://twitter.com/i/status/1727030567407964662
      4 mins 33 secs : 22 Nov., 2023 : Subtitled to English.

      So how much money is NZ booked to pay Pfizer, for the ongoing years???
      Billions of dollars are at stake as we see how Pfizer figures those contracts will hold tight.
      Now we see Pfizer looking to collect from Poland & getting an EU Brussels court to enforce.

      Poland’s non-compliance with the vaccine procurement contract has provoked Pfizer to pursue legal action.
      The first hearing is slated for December 6. The Polish Health Minister, Katarzyna Sojka, when queried about the potential of avoiding the lawsuit and reaching a compromise with Pfizer, acknowledged that the lawsuit ‘seems to be on’ but emphasized it ‘does not concern Poland only.’
      The Minister pointed out that other nations in the European Union face a similar predicament, suggesting a collective issue.

      https://bnn.network/world/poland/pfizer-sues-poland-breach-of-vaccine-contract-ignites-legal-battle/

      Fuck them trying to push the Russian excuse, Ukrainian refugees etc.. “force de majeure”
      Fuck the Pfizer sold not just a dud vax, but a dangerous killing vaxxx.

      At least this change of govt, making noises of about WHO & UN agreements, but as know, MedSafeNZ proved to be safe as it was another unaccountable anonymous medical set up that did the approval, then handed back to MedSafeNZ to run with it.

      Just saving paying to Pfizer should more than go along way to help NZ get thing sorted on the Covid Inquiry,

      • A bit detail on the Pfizer suit.

        ….. Pfizer is suing in Brussels because Polish courts cannot see the contract and are unlikely to be very receptive to enforcing a contract that the court cannot review. ….

        So what court in NZ enforce New Zealand’s contract?

        Do note the interesting graph comparison with Poland Swede & Israel,
        Does that relate to which country wised up first. …. hmmm …..

        Then from a comment
        “Will Poland be the first country to release to the world, its injection data and death data at a record level with injection dates and batch numbers as well as the dates of death?
        With 57% of the Poles partially vaccinated, the comparison of death rates between vaccinated and unvaccinated would be of interest to all human beings on the planet.
        Steve Kirsch will pay for the data conversion costs, but Poland might just leave everyone’s birthdates and names in the released records to prove authenticity and challenge anyone to verify.
        That would scare Pfizer and Moderna and the WHO! You can do it Poland! Do it soon! ….

        https://www.igor-chudov.com/p/pfizer-sues-poland-demanding-money

        Bearing in mind about a week ago, that Steve Kirsch wanted to be very helpful in writing a letter to the NZ Ministry of Health, and offering he would at his cost analyse for free & being independent, all the atomized NZ data, in regards to the death flows in the last few years.

        Surely that information, done for free would be invaluable to a Commission of Inquiry on Covid. 🙂

      • Cheer up, Viking. Matt King’s much-needed law may have been defeated at the hands of evil Labour and the vile Greens but it is back on the agenda now and has every chance of being passed this time. I know it must seem like small consolation to you right now but the important thing, surely, is that it finally passes into law. Political differences aside, I for one have no problem acknowledging Matt King’s role in all this. Credit where credit’s due. I hope this helps.

          It would be nice if some could also recognise his stand at Parliament Grounds.

          We live in hope.and in expectation the almost certainty that the slimy ones will do what they can to avoid the seriousness of the Jabs. Reckoning you will all be dead before they get around to screwing phizer and monderna. and sacking people like baker and Sir Humphrey the lying cunt that mde the rules.

            Yes, great to see the mandates are going and there will be a far-reaching enquiry. However, there’s so much damning evidence coming out now I honestly don’t think we’ll have to wait too long for Maxwell’s Silver Hammer to come down upon their heads. No punishment will ever be enough but hopefully most of us will live to see the evil bastards brought to justice.

  19. Oranga Tamariki faces major upheaval under coalition agreement

    A hugely significant gain for ACT is somewhat camouflaged by legislative jargon. Under the heading ‘Oranga Tamariki’ ACT’s coalition agreement contains the following item:

    • Remove Section 7AA from the Oranga Tamariki Act 1989

    According to Oranga Tamariki:

    “Section 7AA is our practical commitment to the principles of the Te Tiriti o Waitangi/Treaty of Waitangi.”

    Make no mistake. Its removal will have major ramifications. Section 7AA is essentially the legislation that allows Oranga Tamariki to be a ‘by Maori, for Maori’ organisation. (In fact, the very name Oranga Tamariki may lose prominence given the coalition arrangement between NZ First and National agrees to: Ensure all public service departments have their primary name in English, except for those specifically related to Māori. Oranga Tamariki does not relate specifically to Maori but a majority of its clients are. In 2022 68 percent of children in state care were Maori.)

  20. Syphilis and Congenital Syphilis Rise Sharply in the US, Causes Explained
    Syphilis comes in many different guises, and despite highly effective treatment, the disease is still surging—due to a variety of reasons.

    Both syphilis and congenital syphilis have been rising over the decades at alarming rates.
    On Nov. 17, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported a total of 3,761 cases of congenital syphilis. This resulted in 231 stillbirths and 51 infant deaths in 2022.

    “More than 10 times as many congenital syphilis cases were reported in 2022 … than in 2012,” the report authors wrote.
    “I’ve seen ups and downs and syphilis cases over the years, but nothing in my lifetime compares it to what we’re going through right now,”

    https://www.theepochtimes.com/health/syphilis-and-congenital-syphilis-rise-sharply-causes-explained-5532750?utm_source=newsnoe&src_src=newsnoe&utm_campaign=breaking-2023-11-24-1&src_cmp=breaking-2023-11-24-1&utm_medium=email&est=VdVnzsd6GcKgilIZTgHnuaNUb%2FNzM9GzMNEKH2IWohi6Ps4lu0ot979cJJG%2BKd4%3D

    Early syphilis is treated by injecting a long-acting shot of benzathine penicillin. It is highly effective, and the bacterium has not yet shown resistance to it. Maternal treatment of syphilis has a 98 percent success rate at preventing congenital syphilis. An infected fetus can also be treated by prescribing the mother with penicillin.

    Yet not every primary care clinic may stock the antibiotic. In the United States, the only provider is Pfizer, and there has been a drug shortage.

      • arming our pigforce like that will just result in more innocent civilians getting wounded or killed by police.
        even the most highly trained police have managrd to murder passing courier driver, couldnt shoot a dog point blank and even managed to shoot someone through the back AFTER theyd been apprehended and in cuffs face down on the ground.

        i wouldnt trust our pigs to be armed with a butter knife let alone bang bangs, if a few cops get killed from being unarned so be it, its a price worth paying.

        • Yeah, no. The police killing of an innoncent man was partly caused by poor shooting. Firearms practice is not extensive with our police force. One session a year is what cops have told talkback.

          ”If a few cops get killed from being unarned so be it, its a price worth paying.”

          That is not acceptable to me. Or the majority of other NZers would be my guess.

          • the cops cant even store their weapons correctly. down here in the past few years the cops have lost 3 glocks which 1 was found onna footpath and handed in, the other 2 a hori easily stole from the cop car. they dropped loaded mags from a helicopter when they were trying to da man riding the skids during a manhunt and another cop discharged his firearm through the cop car door whistling down the street and they never figured out where the bullet went… nerf guns would still be too much firepower for them.

    • Thanks for that WG.
      When Trump takes over again that will change the world.
      It will show so many nations that big or small they can be great, can treat their citizens and other nations with respect.
      It will show people that they can rid their countries of the nasty and the people of the world can be friends.
      I belonged to Lions International for 21 years and always the theme was about helping other people and the communities we lived in. I met so many people from many countries all with the same respect for their fellow human beings.
      In NZ (and other countries suspect), the totalarians took over and have destroyed all of that with their control of everything even sopping Santa parades and giving kids lollies.

      They have created fear and control.

      They have continued that with the covid message.
      They continue that by removing property rights and so on.
      That’s what always attracted me to ACT, especially when Rodney was there.
      Seymour was on to the job until he allowed himself to be hoodwinked, controlled, whatever over the jabs.
      He failed to do proper due diligence and swallowed to lot hook line and ballast weight.

      Worse he has failed to accept he was wrong and say sorry despite many urging him to do so. ( Including many in his party).

      I could live with that if it was genuine.
      But he won’t because the power to him was more important than his basic principle towards his fellow citizens.
      Thats why his result was not what it could have been.

      HE FORGOT AND GAVE UP ON HIS MOST CORE VALUE.

      And that’s the values that Trump expouses.
      Like him or not based on your perceived image of his past, gained mostly from the controllers who influence the “news”,
      These videos show what its all about.

      When Trump returns to the White House and we stop killing people in other countries we shall see a change in the world leadership.
      The Trudeau’s, will be gone along with all their mates in other countries and organizations like the UN..
      The religious will be out in their place, not as rulers of the world and its wealth but as a place of solace to those who need it.

      The Vikings will rule again.

      The big question will be who will do this in NZ, Australia, and China and Iran and Israel. We can already see it happening in Europe, it has been ongoing for sometime in Russia, despite what the CIA and its controllers and sycophants have told you.
      It is happening in the Americas. Will it ever happen in South Africa and its neighbours? I don’t know. Its seriously too tribal and will take aTrump like person and not a Mandela to change that country.
      It can happen as Putin has shown.

      Who do we have in NZ that fits the personality type to achieve greatness again?
      We have any amount of controllers and religious and power hungry that get emprty tanks but just who can provide us with the leadership necessary to Make NZ Great Again?

      Becuase we were the best little country in the world, once.

      Mkae you suggestions in the comments.
      (without being rude I might add.)
