HAPPY NEW YEAR

  1. I was going to say something about being in bed by 9 o’clock and completely missing the event and how it must be because I’m an old cnut but the last new year I was awake for was 2000 and before that never so it’s nothing to do with age it’s because it’s just another day some nosey power hungry government official decided to make special 1000s of years ago.
    HAPPY NEW YEAR ANYWAY YSB’rs.

  2. The msm ignored John Pilger when he went off script. A scathing critic of the African Warlord Obama and other far left celebrities.

    “Pilger also courted controversy with his comments on Russia. In a 2014 article for The Guardian, he wrote that President Vladimir Putin was “the only leader to condemn the rise of fascism in 21st-century Europe”.”

    • J Pilger. RIP.
      He was an incredible researcher and communicator.
      Got a bit more visibly frustrated in the last 20 years that could mess the message to newcomers.

      Another 1939 Alum.
      Along with Bob Jones, Paul Craig Roberts and John Cleese.
      Although Cleese/Cheese and Jones have the TDS.

      I still remember being at a friends house and standing, without sitting, jaw on the floor, must have been circa 1979, Pilger’s expose on Cambodia. It was stunning, and scary, actual journalism.
      Pilger- a master of facts.
      True war stories, not the usual propaganda.

      Interesting that it is a month after the death of the devil itself, Kissinger; the architect of destruction in Cambodia/Kampuchea.
      And the NZ Govt recognised this regime. Siding with/cowering to the bullies, as ever.

  3. My neighbour who is very well informed reckons the spawn of cnutface Ardern and Jethro doesn’t live with the two self loving arsewipes and that cnutface used IVF to produce the bubba, also that Neeve lives full time with a nanny type arrangement on Waiheke Island.
    Conspiracy or fact ??

  4. Been for a run up the mountain.
    Stopped in to the gym on the way back and watched a few hotties work out.
    Had a special breakfast to feed my muscle bank. Gee I’m looking good for the new year.

    Well not really. Missed seeing in New Year and have had a good sleep.
    Suns up and work to do.
    Happy New Year to all.

    • At least the ladies are helping their family in an honest and ancient profession.
      At least it is not hypocrisy of the USA where they have the worlds largest po.*rn production for worldwide consumption;
      but a quiet business arrangement between two consenting people (prostitute/customer) is illegal.

      Usual double standards we saw in the the US. Esp the 1980s new version of puritanism.
      No nudity in movies, but you can have Rambo or Schwarzenegger killing 100 ‘badies’ per film.
      And they wonder why violence is baked-in in the country.

  5. Welcome to the new year.
    Its fineish this morning, a tropical 16 with a stinking southerly at about 40kph above.
    clearing the clouds at at a fast rate.
    Nice low humidity to go with that.
    High to be 23 .
    Oh and the moon is out.
    we’re screwed up from the start.

    One day you will wake up and there will be no more time to do the things you have always dreamed of.
    Get them done.
    This year is the odd one. Visited my uncle yesterday. He turns 21 this year. Born February 29th.
    On that basis this year is year 506.

    Weird things.

    For all you old fella’s.

      • I was out walking earlier Liz (about 7.30) and listening to the news they said we would get morning rain, some heavy but clearing this afternoon. I looked up at the clear blue skies and thought these guys don’t how to look out the window. The same forecast was given an hour later!!

    • There was no ‘ peace and goodwill’ in the last 6 years; just LIES LIES LIES ; promoted by media filth ; and enforced by the Stasi and low IQ lefty dudges.
      Supported by half the country.
      Remember who they are and that leopards don’t change their spots.
      Especially the green-hugging, green-voting wellywood ones.

      so yes, it can take time to ‘reset’
      Oncle Klaus is here to help you with that.
      If he falters you have the critter Yuval Noah Harari to step up !!

    • i miss gold dredging 🙁 spend several summers doing it full time down here until the big floods wiped us out and took much of our gear.

        • sweet, nice portable setup. do you just suck out cracks etc?
          a mate down had a 2″keene backpack and spent a summer behind a huge boulder in the middle of the river. mad bugger went down bout 1.5m with it and found 7oz in about 4weeks… bought himself a bigger dredge after that. i dunno how he had the patience to go that deep with a 2″.

          my 4 and 5″ dredges we used to go 3-4m through the river bed to reach bedrock, biiiig holes and lots of winching. fun way to spend the summer though.

            https://youtu.be/fme5T5Yaovk?si=vTrYh1bzmUdpjle-

            this is my mate, its my old dredge and claim i sold it too him to fund my venture into the shitty dairy industry. awsome spot up there but its tiger country and rugged as hell, he lives in the bush for 3 or 4 months a year. spent 2018 2019 2020 summers up there on a side creek pulling out nuggies and pickers until the floods fucked us over and stole our gear.

            im guessing youve got a nice handy spot that dosent involve a small expedition to reach!

                • IASB and Webwrat:

                  Congrats to you both, you lucky lads.

                  After doing battle with ‘Planet Protecting’ gweenies (More obsessed with protecting their grass crop), DoC (If it’s ‘Old’ it MUST be important so must NEVER be touched), several different (Overlapping and contradictory) local councils, Central Government (Sorry, the Minister was having an ‘off day’ and declined your application – after three years) and iwi when trying to go underground, (to say nothing about the ever-increasing and phenomenal ‘fees’ that were being ‘demanded’), I eventually flagged it; the ‘little man’ has no chance on the Coromandel.

                  Good luck to you both, long may your leads be productive and the ‘regulators’ stay out of your hair (and your bank accounts).

                  Thank you.

  7. Treaty principles debate takes off

    Underestimating David Seymour is a mistake.

    Anyone who followed David Seymour’s patient championing of assisted dying will have a sneaking suspicion that history may well repeat itself in the Treaty principles debate. As Winston Peters might put it, this is not his first rodeo.

    It took five years after Seymour lodged his bill in Parliament’s biscuit tin in 2015 for the End of Life Choice Act to be ratified in a referendum at 2020’s general election and he was fighting very powerful opponents all the way — including the Catholic Church and its proxies, as well as influential doctors’ unions.

    He entered the arena as the underdog, with even some of those pushing for a law-change initially seeing him as a poor representative to lead the campaign. Little by little, however, his critics were obliged to concede his persistent advocacy was highly effective.

      That means its a good thing…. Hope Tova and her cronies have a really shitty 2024.

  8. I’ve just realised how butt hurt the left in this country are ,a mate who is a labour voter said “ I don’t fcuking want to talk about it today or ever” when I simply asked “what do you think of the election outcome”
    FFS I’ve had 6 years of putting up with “Jacinda’s brilliant ,labour are great”, and now when the boots on the other foot he don’t wanna talk about it,FFFUUCCKKK.

    • Need to select your mates better….. I had a few colleagues who for the most part were decent people, but all cloth cap Labour supporters. Needless to say I never discussed politics with them. However, I hardly socialized with them. When I look at a big bash we had at my place last year, I would say that 99% of those in attendance all had similar political views. ( I had to invite my SIL who would have been the only true Labour supporter)

    • It will be back, not ‘tarted up’ but a major transformation is underway, just a “rotational pause” as after all, these people have a lot of money & control to use to achieve their ultimate goals.

      Just as Mao sent to the countryside those students after the fearsome deadly “struggle” to expose & remove the remnants of any freedom.
      Same as Lenin & Stalin, if the original revolutionaries survived, sent to the Gulags, where they shared many tears on the deaths of those tyrants, because others had not told correctly to Stalin why the info was wrong.

      Always ratchet/ratshitting up, as no one puts a stake through their controlling “stake holders” masters of the universe desires.

  10. Done my run to 1600m light dusting of snow over night. Coffee in St Arnaud now. Beautiful but I’m not very fit.

    Going up there were a number of Japanese looking trampers. All smiled and said good morning. Then a group of white middle class looking kiwi pricks. I looked the lead fit looking fella in the eye and said good morning. The arrogant prick ignored me. Early morning on a mist covered mountain! Bet they are from fucking Christchurch.

    What’s wrong with Western people?

    • i find the same in the bush down here.
      average joe and tourists are friendly as but when you come across someone decked out in brand new kit from head to toe they wont give you the time of day… just snobby city fags that think theyre the shit.

      when it comes to rivers and fishing its usually opposite, the kiwis are nice, friendly and up for a yarn while the tourists are arrogant arseholes that think they own the place.

      • Trampers are generally made up of leftist greenie white middle class pricks, who look down their nose at real outdoorsmen like hunters and workers. People who are self reliant and need to interact with nature. For trampers it is a social outing, The exception being those quirky solo guys, some of them are hardcore.

            I want to head right down the bottom of the South Island for a road trip, but stuff that with what I have seen.

            • i done a 600km round trip yesterday, roads down here were scarce with cars but what was on the road was bloody slow cnuts, 65-70km slow.
              found out yesterday whats worse then a road maggot…. a road maggot towing a bout coupled with strong wind. that thing struggled to do 60km, crappy road too with limited passing.

              youll be better off waiting another 10days or so untill most are back to work, even better would be wait till school starts back. if you end up down these parts let me know, if weather plays ball me and lil sb will take ya out and catch a feed of fish/paua etc… ill even donate ya a sack of southlands finest soy 🙂

    • Was this real or imaginary ?

      People dont have to acknowledge you in a shared space.
      Do you expect people in an elevator to acknowledge you?

      People do this sometimes on a cycle trail. I dont know who they are, will never see them again.
      I don’t have to chirp each time I pass by someone.

      Maybe the Japs thought you were a stalker and rapist in outdated Bata Bullets and were trying to bank some goodwill before you picked a victim.

  11. So here is something to think about.
    ——-
    This from Maryan Street (former liebour MP ) wiki
    ———
    Street worked as an international observer of general elections across Africa and Asia, mostly on behalf of the Commonwealth, with a focus on human rights and good governance.

    In 2007 she travelled to Lesotho to join the Commonwealth Expert Team observing the parliamentary elections.[16]

    She returned to Lesotho in 2015 as a member of the Commonwealth Observer Group for the Lesotho National Assembly elections.[18]
    In 2018 she was a member of the Commonwealth Observer Group which assessed the general elections in Sierra Leone.[19]
    She was a member of the Commonwealth Observer Group which monitored the 2019 Parliamentary elections in Maldives.[20]
    ————————————-

    Riiiiight.
    So who observes the elections in NZ
    in USA
    IN UK ?

    I don’t believe for one minute that elections are run honestly, diligently, or fairly, nor that there is any quality control and valid verification of count .
    We know
    -the government cannot even build motorways on time and have to rework them soon after
    -We know that goo-mint cannot run a a census to within 10% accuracy
    -We know that goo-mint cant control violence in its own housing estates nor even hold the houses up to the standard they require of private landlords
    – we know they completely lie over the true causes of road accidents and road deaths
    -We know they try to tell us that electric cars are the way to go
    -We know they they tell us the planet is ‘near boiling’ when every mathematical fact makes a LIE of this.
    —–
    So why the hell would we let them run an election ????
    Even the local body. The Auckland 2022 election is very dubious esp. the weird ‘election’ of Michael Woods cretinous wife, Julie Fairey.

    Why do we not have observers in here.
    Why do we suggest we can do an honest election count and Lesotho or Maldives cannot ?
    Ditto, USA and others.

    • Howi, Maryan Street, observations of a demented, failed Right Wing, White Supremist.

      Un-elected former Labour List MP – never won an Electorate and stood in plenty of Electorates from King Country to Nelson, no one wanted her, as like Andrew Little, she failed every time.
      Appointed by Labour Governments to the Boards of Housing New Zealand and Crown Forestry Rentals, but never had a job employing people in the real world or had any practical experience in the field of Governance or Business.
      Partricipated in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Trade’s Myanmar’s Young Leaders Programme despite never having been a Leader of anything of value, running a business or employing anyone.
      UN Observer at Elections around the World over the years without any qualifications whatsoever in this field, but a great Junket to be on, with first class Airfares and Hotels to stay in, receiving great remuneration and achieving absolutely nothing in return.

      So it boils down to me and these are but a few observations, that she is nothing but a Troughing Leech who has achieved absolutely nothing of residual value for all the remuneration the Taxpayer has coughed up to her.

      • Good observations AH.

        She was a a dyke so that makes one upwardly mobile in the H1 and H2 era.
        Not so much recently, you need to be more extreme.
        A cray cray dyke with serious mental health issues like Chloe Thick-as-a- brick

        The reason I looked her up was mention of Seymour End of Life Choice and AFAIR that was led by Street for quite some time. Seymour took over after her; when she was no longer in parliament.
        No mention of it in the wiki.

  13. This morning’s edition of Pravda (once known as the Wairarapa Times-Age) has an article on a “highly organised anti-social driving event” held at various locations around the region on Saturday night. Apparently our local hoons were joined by “a massive number of vehicles (est 300) mainly from the Hutt & Palmerston North”.

    Amazingly Plod did respond with eight cars which were “outnumbered, ignored & then attacked”. The report advises that they stood around taking photos & videos. Despite the mayhem & public drinking no arrests were reported. One of the new roundabouts which Higgins as contractors for the fuck useless Waka Whatever have been working on for the last two years is covered with black rubber & bits of shredded tyre.

    Okay, the cops were outnumbered but they are the same arseholes who issue tickets like confetti to those who normally travel the goat track slightly over the limit. The same ones who breath test everything that moves while policing liquor & drug regulations with zeal.

    The takeaway is, do what you like without consequences but do it it in large groups.

  14. Reinterpretation of the treaty is going to end in tears. There appears to be a growing movement who believe that our parliament and laws don’t apply to them. How does society react?

    “The principles were an attempt for the Crown and courts to reconcile two fundamentally different documents – Te Tiriti and the Treaty. But principles cannot change what was agreed. So the principle of Kawanatanga, often described as the Crown’s right to govern Aotearoa, must be accurately understood as the Crown’s right to govern only British/tangata tiriti.

    Debating Treaty principles is a distraction from basic legal facts

    • Saggy, is this the same Waitangi Tribunal where only one side of the case is put, where there is no rebuttal evidence, where no one argues for the people of this country, where there are no counter claims and where only Maori can make a claim? And is this the same Waitangi Tribunal which has never failed to find in favour of Maori?

      If that is the case, the Waitangi Tribunal is nothing short of a Kangaroo Court and the sooner it is dispensed with or its Articles altered to have counter arguments and claims bought, the better. Otherwise, as you say, it will end in tears for the Troughers, Early Settlers, Lawyers and Bludgers that allow this thing to fester.

    • Her stupidity highlights the need for the REAL english version of the Treaty, the Littlewood one, to be accepted for what it is – Hobson’s draft which the Busbys translated into Maori. We will never get mutual agreement as long as the ‘English’ version being pushed at us is the fraudulent Freeman fabrication.

  15. Another lot of snouts in gun over the money trough in Canada.

    ……. Records show the cabinet budgeted $37.4 million for Trudeau’s gun grab program but spent a quarter of that amount without actually buying any firearms.
    ….. Out of the total budget, $8,964,109 was spent by the Public Safety Department and the RCMP before the program was postponed on October 12. ……

    …… Report earlier obtained by the Canadian Taxpayers Federation warned the gun grab program was costly and complicated. …..

    ………. The estimates by the cabinet suggested a range “between $300 million and $400 million,”
    while the Budget Office forecasted a higher amount of $756 million. ….

    https://www.westernstandard.news/news/fed-govt-spent-89-million-on-trudeaus-gun-grab-without-buying-a-gun/51096

    As noted above in Beorn’s comment, 6:21 pm.
    There is a hell of lot more in play in these gun shootings.

    So these “expert sociologists of engineering”, try to gain further controls over the good citizens by calling it some form of “following the science”, but totally ignoring the real truth to follow the $dollar track.

    the podcast on iHeart Radio

    After 20 years of research, scientists have created three new types of apricot for New Zealand orchards.

    Sharon Kirk at Ardgour Valley Orchards is growing 20 hectares of the new crop and told Tim Dower the new varieties are suited to New Zealand conditions and were bred “the old-fashioned way” to make a highly coloured and juicy fruit

  17. https://www.stuff.co.nz/world/asia/301034214/japan-issues-tsunami-warning-after-magnitude-76-quakeJapan has issued tsunami alerts after a series of strong quakes in the Sea of Japan.

    The Japan Meterological Agency reported quakes off the coast of Ishikawa and nearby prefectures shortly after 4pm on Monday (local time), one of them with a preliminary magnitude of 7.6.

    It issued a major tsunami warning for Ishikawa and lower-level tsunami warnings or advisories for the rest of the western coast of the island of Honshu.

    Japanese public broadcaster NHK TV warned torrents of water could reach as high as 5m and urged people to flee to high land or the top of a nearby building as quickly as possible.
