        • Well Revvy, that is the ethical debate Billy has in his own head.

          Am I above God or just God? If I am just God, then I have to compete with other Gods, whereas if I am above God, then they become subservient to me and that is what I want to be, Top Dog, because I am always right and know what is best for everyone. Top God or Top Dog, it’s all in the spelling for Willie. It may be just semantics for him, but it is a dilemma he will never resolve. To everyone else, he is but an arsehole.

  3. Stuff is such a hard hitting balls out informative must read news outlet , todays headline “ which of the top 5 wedding venues in Aotearoa will Dame Ardern choose “
    What a fcuking stupid question as anyone with a single brain cell rattling around inside their heads knows the answer—————> 1st the venue must be 100% secure ,we can’t have the Plebs turning up to demonstrate the most destructive tyrannical MP & PM in the history of our country but much more importantly a venue that will do the whole thing for nothing except the honour and international publicity they will garner by providing the place for NZ’s only true international superstar to get hitched.
    Will the spawn child be flower girl ? we’ll have to wait for the Woman’s weekly spread where they’ll airbrush her into looking like a Hollywood starlet rather than the butt ugly skinny stoop shouldered bandy legged bedraggled cnut she really is .
    Still hating on Ardern in 2024,LOL.

      • dougal, the thing i struggle with is how the folk in these offices think its alright to blow other ppls money on shit like this.

        any reasonable human being would know and feel its wrong, even the employees that attended should be fucking ashamed of themselves… sack em all, if they have time to undertake rock paper scissor tournaments then clearly theyre very overstaffed and underworked. fuck this 15-20% cleanout of the bloated govt workforce, they need to go full elon musk and sack 75%… but we all know that really only 4 ppl will get sacked and a few hundred transfered.

        • The thing I struggle with, is why would anyone want to do blind disco, Rock/Paper/Scissors or a Scavenger hunt with their coworkers. Man I used to hate those team-building wankfests. My favourite response to “There’s no “I” in “TEAM”” was “Yeah, but there’s a “U” in “CUNT”” (even if I didn’t say it out loud)

          • Same. I couldn’t stand all that bullshit team building when most of them weren’t worth spending time with during normal work days.

            You can’t blame staff for being forced to attend mandatory “team building” by idiot superiors.

            Team building will never solve the systemically broken workplace.

    • In the same vein, that they try to hide from the Taxpayer.

      …. In response to an Official Information Act request by the Otago Daily Times in May,
      the university refused to detail the costs of the sculpture and said any ongoing inquiries would be
      “of a vexatious nature and culturally insensitive.” …

    A very old saying is that ‘A Chinaman would sell his Grandmother’s teeth’ if it was going to make him money and give him status’ so with that as a standard to work by, in NZ, Chinese ‘cheapness’ (And the associated ‘deviousness’) has not been confined to ‘Bridge steel’, but has also affected dwellings and high-rise buildings, to the extent that it is now only a fool who trusts them – especially if they are recent immigrants or bought in by contractors.

    It’s unfortunate but them’s the realities.

  7. It is a big long technical article but it states how New Zealand Fudged the Data on How the Kidneys Fare After the COVID Vaccines, a 70 percent increased rate of kidney injury following two doses of Pfizer mRNA vaccines. Even more telling of injury was the dose-dependent effect. That is, one dose of Pfizer showed a 60 percent increased rate of injury within three weeks post-injection, while two doses showed a 70 percent increased rate of injury three weeks post-injection. “Acute kidney injury” was not defined by the authors but is understood in a clinical setting to include measurable changes in lab results and/or serious signs and symptoms such as bleeding, pain with urination, kidney stones, nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, or other renal dysfunction.
    The data were drawn from a national database of over 4 million people over the age of 5 who had received the Pfizer vaccines. This number represented 95 percent of New Zealand adults and teenagers.
    The article then states that the reported data was significantly changed, down by 50% and the original data has disappeared.

    My interest in this is that with my limited contacts these days I knew of 6 adult males who all ended up in hospital with kidney failure in a 3 month period in 2021. Neve knew of any before that period or funnily enough since that time.
    What an amazing coincidence. How corrupt is the system when official figures are altered after the event.

    • Thanks Hooker Phil,
      It may be that the kidneys are reacting to other adjuvants in the vaccine, besides the mRNA.
      So possibly not so much “batch” connected? but then again it could be the differences of quality control, “QC” but this time for other ingredients?

      …. That is one dose of Pfizer showed a 60 percent increased rate of injury within three weeks post-injection, while two doses showed a 70 percent increased rate of injury three weeks post-injection. ….

      Would it be that it can be hidden by kidney dialysis?
      I know I would like to see the age banding too.
      Seems to be in that time bracket of 3 weeks post vaxx, to point a very strong finger to the cause.

      As pointed out by Robert Malone, seems to be another strong signal warning.

      “This is an important and poorly covered area of the lipid nanoparticle toxicology.
      It is not surprising that kidneys are impacted, as they filter all of the circulating blood,
      and so will get hit with any circulating mod-mRNA lipid nanoparticles.” —– Robert Malone.

  8. One night, after a couple had retired for the night, the woman
    became aware that her husband was touching her in a most
    unusual manner. He started by running his hand across her
    shoulders and the small of her back.

    He then ran his hand over her breasts, touching them very lightly.
    Then he proceeded to run his hand gently down her side,
    sliding his hand over her stomach, and then down the other
    side to a point below her waist.

    He continued on, gently feeling her hips, first one side then the
    other. His hand ran further down the outside of her thighs. His
    gentle probing then started up the inside of her left thigh,
    stopped and then returned to do the same to her right thigh.

    By this time the woman was becoming aroused and she
    squirmed a little to better position herself.

    The man stopped abruptly and rolled over to his side of
    the bed.

    “Why are you stopping darling?” she whispered breathlessly.

    He whispered back, “I found the remote.”

  9. Further Simpletons post
    I went chat GPT and asked the question
    can Tozinameran cause damage to the kidneys?
    Answer
    Tozinameran is the technical name for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. As of my last knowledge update in January 2022, there is no substantial evidence to suggest that the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine causes direct harm to the kidneys. The vaccine has undergone rigorous testing in clinical trials to assess its safety and efficacy.
    So the worlds new leading groundbreaking technology hasn’t been updated for two years, I guess that is very convenient, remind me when they started the Bunnings sausage tent jabbing frenzy, AI is being manipulated by the same usual suspects, just 5 minutes asking questions clearly tells you, what the narrative is and who is controlling it.

  11. JFK’S Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in France in the early 60’s when DeGaulle decided to pull out of NATO. DeGaulle said he wanted all US military out of France as soon as possible.
    Rusk responded “Does that include those who are buried here?”

    You could have
    Heard a pin drop
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    There was a conference in France where a number of international engineers were taking part, including French and American. During a break, one of the French engineers came back into the room saying ‘Have you heard the latest dumb stunt Bush has done? He has sent an aircraft carrier to Indonesia to help the tsunami victims. What does he intended to do, bomb them?’
    A Boeing engineer stood up and replied quietly:
    ‘Our carriers have three hospitals on board that can treat several hundred people; they are nuclear powered and can supply
    Emergency electrical power to shore facilities; they have three cafeterias with the capacity to feed 3,000 people three meals a day,
    They can produce several thousand gallons of fresh water from sea water each day, and they carry half a dozen helicopters for use in transporting victims and injured to and from their flight deck. We have eleven such ships; how many does France have?’

    A Royal Navy Admiral was attending a naval conference that included Admirals from the English, U.S. , Canadian, Australian and French Navies. At a cocktail reception, he found himself standing with a large group of Officers that included personnel from most of those countries. Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks but a French admiral suddenly complained that, whereas Europeans learn many languages, the English learn only English. He then asked, ‘Why is it that we always have to speak English in these conferences rather than speaking French?’
    Without hesitating, the British Admiral replied,
    ‘Maybe it’s because the Brit’s, Canadians, Aussie’s and Americans arranged it so you wouldn’t have to speak German.’

    Robert Whiting, an elderly gentleman of 83, arrived in Paris by plane. At French Customs, he took a few minutes to locate his passport in his carry on.
    “You have been to France before, monsieur?” the customs officer asked sarcastically.
    Mr. Whiting admitted that he had been to France previously.
    “Then you should know enough to have your passport ready.”
    The Englishman said,
    ‘The last time I was here, I didn’t have to show it.”
    “Impossible. You English always have to show your passports on arrival in France !”
    The English senior gave the Frenchman a long hard look. Then he quietly explained,
    ”Well, when I came ashore at Gold Beach on D-Day in 1944 to help liberate this country, I couldn’t find a single Frenchmen to show a passport to.”

  12. Otago University decided that it did not want to provide costings for a sculpture it had produced, when a OIA was made because the cost of it would, according to the University, upset some. The sculpture was made to celebrate the University’s 150th Anniversary, but after being pressed by the Chief Ombudsmen Judge, Peter Boshier, he said the University should not have withheld the costs.

    But here is my issue.

    A. The Sculpture was commissioned by the Office of Maori Development, not the University.
    B. The University eventually said the cost of the Sculpture was $112,523.71, including GST.

    1. Why did the Office of Maori Development commission a Sculpture in the first place when in fact it was the Universities celebration, not a Government Departments celebration?

    2. Was the cost of $112,523.71 the total cost or the cost that only was paid by the University?

    3. Did the Office of Maori Development which commissioned this Sculpture pay any money towards it’s production and was it over and above the $112,253.71 the University said they spent on the sculpture. If so, why has this not been announced?

    4. If the Office of Maori Development commissioned this sculpture without paying anything towards the cost, what gives them the right to commission anything, without contributing towards the cost and then landing the whole cost with another party?.

    Somewhere, the smell of a Rat is lurking.

      Sort of interesting where the corn to ethanol fuel mix issue.
      The government bureaucracies give on one hand then jerk you back on the other hand.
      Those ethanol mixes are not great for the internal combustion engine either, particularly when the bureaucrats want to keep on increasing the % in the mix.
      Then just how much energy is needed to produce a litre of ethanol, can be a close race.

      Though the electric cars seem to be withering on that government vine.

    • THIS Government Scam Could DESTROY Rural America
      https://youtu.be/5lC-8x7ZnJg
      14 mins 45 secs : 9th January. The Blaze : Glenn Beck :

      There is a new government proposal that Glenn believes is “horrifying.”
      The SEC proposal would allow for the creation of a new type of company called a “natural asset company,”
      which could buy up land to use natural processes —
      like the generation of fresh air —
      to write off carbon emissions.
      Utah Treasurer Marlo Oaks joins to explain what he believes this would mean:—
      “It will permanently stop economically essential activities like grazing, mineral extraction, modern agriculture … we’re basically talking about the destruction of rural America.”

      Some parts of this can even be done with out a landowners consent.

      BLM = Bureau of Land Management for managing grazing of cattle.
      NAC National Asset Company.
      An arbitrary economic environment value for ecological replenishment activities, not the normal economic activity.
      NYSE New York Stock Exchange is pushing for this.
      Net Zero to achieve Carbon offset.
      PPP an extension of control through Public Private (Corporates)Partnership.
      This is set up to go on into Perpetuity once it is signed in from Jan 20th 2024

      Some of us have heard Klaus Shwab and Yuval speaking of this very thing.
      Monetizing all natural resources and having that value seized by PPPs.
      This is WEF bullshit, & some of that is floating in the NZ scheme of things.

      It seems to be very fresh, so it is difficult to take in the implications but Ardern, the Biden Green Deal crew can & do get very costly thing done in cruel devious legislation & regulation.

      Though to be aware that the Fresh Water Farm Plans to be implemented over all farm land that is being phased in by Regional Councils for even more rules, regulations, auto fines, penalties, levies, & fees etc, though different is still under way in New Zealand.
      It has not been stopped ! as we know who is a Net Zero fan. 🙁

      without any context it means nothing, if it was a walk in vax clinic however then that would certainly raise my eyebrows. most of the covid madness was over by then and the sheep were waking up to the fact the vax done nothing and that wouldve been the 3rd? or 4th? jab round so highly likely scared old people getting jabbed up.

      0

      • …….”How can the Covid spike protein in blood transfusions not enter the blood stream”……

        By a process known as magic. It works in the same way as the Pfizer vaccine is injected into the muscle mass & starts making spikes which enter cells but for some occult reason never enter the bloodstream even though white blood cells hoover up all other detritus.

        For further information consult your local priest, necromancer or tohunga.

        • Indeed. If you consult standard vaccine procedures, the reason why the arm muscles are chosen for injection is that they have a very plentiful blood supply. [1] (TRUE) So the Pfizer vaccine defies physics and biology by staying in the arm muscle [2] (FALSE).

          The same occult reason applies in one of the arguments in climate change. The zealots claim that temperature rise will melt the Antarctic ice and that the laws of physics (archimedes/newton) cause the excess water to distribute across all seas. [3] (TRUE).

          They claim that rate of sea level rise is increasing at geometric rates in Florida and the Solomon Islands, and that this is proof of sea level rise and proof of climate change. [4]

          When challenged as to why there is no increase in the rate of sea level rise in NZ, Australia, and the rest of the world, they claim that water levels can increase in parts of the world, but not other places, invalidating [3].

          Furthermore, they omit to say why the land based ice will melt before the sea based ice, the melting of which will not impact sea levels.

          They also state that the land ice will simply melt and/or jump off the Antarctic land mass, and land in the water, melt, and flood the world, but do not explain where the 80°C temperature rise will come from. [5]

    • After watching Germany’s pathologist with histography staining, Arne Burkhardt’s last interview he had a very interesting take on the embalmers finding that long white fibrous streams in the blood vessels.
      He understood as that it shows up when a body cools.
      It is when a body is cut, then a small amount of collagen is created & gathers at the edge of the cut to help seal & begin the healing.. Others parts of your blood obviously clots.

      That is why some people though still alive, show up with medical problems when in particular their lower legs become more cool, cold, & as he said, though the blood vessels are very small for such rashes he has been able to find that collagen.
      The pain & problem is greatly alleviated when warmed up.

      So from a few people that I know, in the blood service, gently inquiring about when they cool those blood packs, are or has their been any problems?
      The difficulty is that you must remember that those staff are jabbed to hell & back again to keep their jobs, and many are strongly in touch with being up to date in being vaxxed.
      If any thing on gentle talk, they come back quite vehemently being vaxxed supporters.

      Maybe I am reading too much into things, that there is a problem, but they seem to know the angle of where I am going to;– and in all cases shut me down, and as per standard deflection to question my vaxx status.

      I use to be a regular in giving blood, but my status changed due to surgery, & maybe also in receiving a lot of blood pre covid times.?
      So would any of those blood donors, over a period of time, ask some questions if there are any problems.
      Do they even ask casually or routine, if you have been vaxxed? & what is there response to “No”.
      I note there is no problem if vaxxed so long as more than 12 hours, and no side effects like a rash etc..

      … Donors who received a vaccine that requires no stand down period, which includes Pfizer BioNTech, are asked to wait 12 hours before donating, as long as there is no inflammation or infection at the vaccination site.
      Donors who experience ANY side effects e.g. rash, headache, muscle fatigue, fever please postpone and reschedule their donation until they are in good health.

      https://www.nzblood.co.nz/news/2021/important-information-regarding-the-covid-vaccine-and-blood-donation/

      The major problem in this, is the lack of openness & transparency.

      May be the whistle blower is wrong about the number of deaths to the tally of vaxxes , Maybe? All he wants is good people to be given the full raw data & have it independently analysed.

      May be increased Kidney problems, that were satisfactory concluded to half the original number is ok but seems to be hidden away..? as posted above today.

      Maybe the nasal probe of Ashley Bloomfield was for real the adult size, but Shane Reti picked up that it was children’s size in laugh away comment in the Herald.

      Maybe some one from the Health Department should have inquired about those fibrous white clots that the Auckland embalmer & inquired for a sample to do pathological histography staining research based on the ever helpful Arne Burkhardt of Germany..?

      Are there any records that are anonymized, the public can access of the blood bank, like the amount of blood turned down and or the amount of blood & its parts that go past “best before”?
      Just to get raw data, dates, etc.. over a range of years to see what patterns may show up.

      If one does not look, record them then there are no car crash deaths in New Zealand either, but as we know, that has a vested industry behind tracking all of that to make sure we know.

    • If given a time machine, and believing that their parents are pale stale white idiots and need exterminating, they would go back in time and shoot their grandparents so their parents were never born, and so that they (the grandchildren) can live their lives without their parents.

      interesting that it appears they dug the tunnels for secret entry to get around stupid covid lockdown measures.

  14. Newton’s Third Law states “For every action there’s an equal & opposite reaction.” It seems that it holds true for the actions of climate change lunatics:

    …….”Beyond a certain size, solar farms become large enough to affect the weather around them and ultimately the climate as a whole”………….”in a future world in which almost every region invests in more solar projects and becomes more reliant on them, the interplay of solar energy resources can potentially shape the energy landscape, creating a complex web of dependencies, rivalries and opportunities.”………

    Add to this the toxic mess of plastic that the end of life solar panels will produce. Clean & green. Fuck off.

    • not only that nasska but the shear size of the footprint/land acerage needed is absurd compared to other “green” energy like wind turbines. at least turbines you can still graze/ crop most of the surrounding land and its not like theyre installing solar on marginal land etc it always seems to be nice flat productive land.

      • You’re onto it. There’s a large solar project mooted for the snooty, very upmarket Southern Wairarapa borough of Greytown. It is an incredible spectator sport watching & hearing the dedicated green nimbys twisting themselves into unimaginable contortions over supporting the initiative vs their innate desire to protect their over inflated property values.

        You can smell the cognitive dissonance at the town’s boundaries. 🙂

  15. Interesting when weighing up the next round of the Tiwai Point contract.

    …… Mike Ferraro, chief executive of ASX-listed Alumina Limited that owns 40 per cent of Alcoa’s Australian operation, said it cost $US410 to make a tonne of alumina at Kwinana in 2023, but the current price was about $US360 a tonne.
    In contrast, Alcoa’s two other WA refineries – Pinjarra and Wagerup – produced alumina for about $US250 a tonne last quarter. …..

    Seems to spin a number of silver linings in the cloud of this closure but interesting number of fish hooks & liabilities
    One being 1500 hectares, in good locality, but then has to cleansed to a satisfactory level
