  1. At fricking last,, the White House chief of staff has agreed to add subtitles on all of president Bidens mutterings from next Monday onwards but has stipulated that there will be a 10 second time delay whilst staff figure out what he’s actually trying to say and correct it for the subtitles..
    On another subject has anyone on YSB had YouTube asking them for access to their photo albums ? I’ve downloaded the latest Apple program for the IPad and have been hassled ever since with that outrageous fcuking request?

  2. ED ,Apple are not what they used to be ,I only bought the new IPad because the old one which was over 10 years old was not keeping up with apps etc, unbelievably I had to wipe my Rumble app because I was getting dozens of notifications from shows I wasn’t subscribed to .
    Turning off notifications from Rumble on my settings made no difference dozens of notifications kept flooding my email inbox ,I’ll try signing back in and see if the problem has disappeared, it was like rumble were trying to boost their numbers somehow but who knows?

        • learn to use incognito mode or maybe a vpn? to get around your pornhub worries 🙂

          all tech and apps seem to be expanding their grip on users lives and info. i disable damn near everything and every permission possible, some apps i just do away with now if they cant function with just basic permissions.

  3. You’ve probably noticed that we’re always encouraging our communities to take action at the local level.

    Well, here’s another opportunity to do just that: The Department of Conservation seeks nominations for membership of conservation boards in 2024.

    Conservation boards are independent bodies that empower local communities to contribute to the management of conservation areas. Boards provide a voice for local concerns to gain traction in DOC’s work, and on a national level where required.

    Under The Conservation Act the Department of Conservation manages all Crown land in New Zealand designated for conservation and protection.

    This is about 30% of New Zealand’s land area or around 8 million hectares of native forests, tussock-lands, alpine areas, wetlands, dune-lands, estuaries, lakes and islands, national forests, maritime parks, marine reserves, nearly 4000 reserves, river margins, some coastline, and many offshore islands.
    Why stand?
    – To put yourself in a position to monitor, influence and apply pressure.
    – To keep the New Zealand conservation estate for all Kiwis.
    – To oppose the monetising of nature by globalists.
    – To push back against co-governance.
    – To protect our beautiful environment.

    Wouldn’t it be great if some of the people managing those 8 million hectares of natural environment, were aware of the various globalist agendas at play?

    Well, we can make that a reality… with your help.

    If you’d like to put your hat in the ring, fill in the nomination form here.

    If you’re already busy doing your bit for New Zealand, encourage others to step up to the task by sharing this link: https://www.voicesforfreedom.co.nz/doc-boards/

    More information:
    Conservation board members are paid for meetings and other approved activities. Members are paid a daily fee of $250, while the Chair fee is $330, based on an eight-hour commitment. The daily fee applies to all work, including that performed outside of meetings, that is required for the body to carry out its role.

    Boards meet six times a year. In addition to the meetings, trips, and workshops, members go to committee meetings, do research for reports and submissions, read briefing material before meetings, and liaise with the public.

    A Grassroots Approach…
    The systems overhaul that this country needs is not going to come from a top down approach, it starts with patriotic New Zealanders getting involved at the grassroots level.

    We have been consistent with our emphasis on ‘local’ since the start of VFF, focusing on developing more than 100 groups all across NZ and assisting our communities to engage with politics at the local level.

    If you’d like to let us know that you’ve put yourself forward, hit reply.

    If you’re going in stealth mode, that’s great too!
    VOF email this morning.

    • Surely there are people on YSB who would be wonderful on that board????? Some of you younger ones well perhaps under 70?? could perform, speak Te Reo for a minute of their time, say you are from some obscure branch of some hapu or something. Have some infirmity like mental health?? It’s worth 250 dollars a meeting and you could spin it out I am sure. Let us all know when you are successful./////////

  4. In Chinese culture dragons are well regarded and associated with good luck, power and strength so when a Chinese father gathered his young daughters around him, he asked what they would look for in a man as a potential husband.
    The youngest said she would look for a man with a five dragon tattoos on his chest.
    The middle daughter said she would look for a man with five dragon tattoos on his chest and two on each arm.
    The eldest daughter said she would look for a man with one dragon.
    When her father asked where, she replied “Along the ground”.

      Noticeably Mr Grant apportions absolutely NO blame on the recently departed ‘Labour’ Government, dl, robertson, hipkins et al; The ones who seemingly deliberately set out to bankrupt NZ and destroy it’s social cohesion in pursuit of their dream of a socialist utopia in the South Pacific

      You’d almost think that he was a labour supporter…

    • Who would be the administrators of schools going along in teaching this?

      HOW OLD ARE THESE WOULD BE JIHADIST TERRORISTS?

      Kids in Jenin (Arab city in Judea-Samaria) [West Bank]dressed up as terrorists while holding real weapons saying:
      “In the name of Allah the most compassionate and most merciful, I shall deliver my message to the Israeli… brutal army. If you enter our camp, your death will follow”

      They then sing about being martyrs.

      Two generations have been brainwashed with hatred and glorification of terror.

      20 seconds,

      The seeds of this are deeply sown & then in their UNWRA school programmes.

      But do not fear, both Hipkins & Luxon along with many other countries rewarded those school programs that supported the 7/10 attack. 🙁

      • Yep, excellent citizens of the World. Not only is it Hipkins and Luxon supporting this sort of education, but the Greens in particular, the likes of Steve Able, Davidson, Swarbrick, Jimmy Two Mums, through his silence and the light fingered thief.

  5. ACT leader David Seymour hits out at opposition to Treaty Principles Bill in State of Nation speech
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2024/01/act-leader-david-seymour-hits-out-at-opposition-to-treaty-principles-bill-in-state-of-nation-speech.html

    It comes after Seymour was announced as Associate Minister of Justice and responsible for the Treaty Principles Bill, giving him more ownership of the controversial legislation based on an ACT Party proposal to debate and define the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi. Seymour has said it’s time for New Zealanders to have the discussion, rather than leaving it up to judges and bureaucrats.

    Seymour accused those calling the legislation “racist” of sowing division.

    “Leaders in Māoridom who have the ear of the young need to ask themselves: are they dealing with the issues responsibly, or simply inciting baseless racial resentment? It is an important question,” Seymour said in his State of the Nation speech.

    He said in recent decades New Zealanders have been told that to solve these problems, New Zealand must become “Tiriti-centric” where there are two types of people in partnership – tangata whenua (people of the land) and tangata tiriti (Treaty people) who would each have different political and legal rights.

    He said that is not only untrue it’s “incompatible with the fundamental democratic value” that all citizens are equal under the law.

    “This divisive idea has been fuelled by unelected bureaucrats and judges promoting a ‘partnership’ interpretation of our founding document,” Seymour said.

  7. boom, seymour nails it and we finally have a politician with enough balls to say the truth and not back down on his cause even in the face of thugish behaviour and threats from those that hide behind the treaty and use it to bash the rest of nz and fatten their wallets!

    “Over the last quarter of a century, the Clark, Key, and Ardern governments have all eroded the simple idea that YOU are the person that makes the difference in your own life,” Seymour said.

    “There’s been a cultural shift towards the idea that if there is a problem to be solved, or if life is to get better, the people in Wellington will do it for us.

    “Since the 1990s, the government has steadily crept further and further into your life. What has been the result? Education results are going backwards. One in ten working age New Zealanders is on a main benefit. The price of a house is out of reach for most young New Zealanders. Productivity has flatlined.”

    • i like how seymour keeps cool calm and collected anytime he discusses this even when interviewers and hecklers are getting wound up, spewing lies and twisting/mis interpreting what he says.
      i have a feeling many scum churnalists and other media parasites will be getting humbled by seymour in the next year or 2.

      the biggest lie that frustrates me and causes genuine anger is when clack bunts and white wokies say “he wants to re write the treaty” or “hes going to erase the treaty”.
      bunch of fuckwits

      • SB, two things, yes the rot started in 1990 as you say when Spud Bolger and National became the government and carried on by every Government since.

        As to the Treaty Principles Bill, well Seymour will win this and push it through. Reasoned, polite, calm argument will win every day over vitriol and greed, The bulk of the population will see this, I am sure as i am forever hopeful.

    • Seymour is in his tenth year as an MP.
      He needs to deliver this term or he never will.
      He was there for the last 2 years of Key.
      He saw it live.

      Key was a wrecker and Seymour had front row seats to it.
      Bolger was bad. A real NINO socialist. bastards still not dead. So sad.
      Shipley and English as PM were massive underperformers.

      English had merit as Finance Minister. Effectively a COO. As CEO, he froze.
      26 years waiting and he did nothing with his three quarters of a year.
      The sick and dying Norm Kirk seriously out performed English with his 20 months, on output, not judging the policy.

      Oirish Spud Bolger brought in MMP, gave us leaky homes and the RMA. He flogged off government depts real cheap like Railways then came back as chairman of trans-rail.
      KEY IMO was worse than Clark.
      Clark opposed more maori control, Key embraced it and pushed it forward with lots of generous settlements with top up clauses if other tribes do well.
      Clark said No to UNDRIP. Key the traitor was there to sell us non-maori out.
      Clark came in in 1999 with a 5 point pledge card…and delivered on it.
      Key spouted shit in 2008 and delivered nothing. His positive productivity was shit.

      Looking back I think Clark was more of a patriot than Key could ever be.
      Clark was typical of a farmers daughter that is a labour voter. AU /NZ is full of them by the tens of thousands.
      They are a big voting block. My sister in law is one example. Blindly supports toothy Adrain to this day.

      Notional has been a part of the problem as much as liebour.
      The toothy Adrain era was such an off the charts aberration of evil that it smudges the pathos that has been Notional.
      They cannot hide behind this any more.

      Productivity has been shit in NZ and until this is addressed then the rest of it is pissing into the wind.

  8. New Zealand wine exports rose by 25 per cent to $2.4 billion in the 12 months to May 2023, despite a smaller harvest with yields falling by 6 per cent. The country exports 80 per cent of its wine production.

    It is now the world’s sixth-largest wine exporter by value, despite producing only 1 per cent of the world’s wine, according to NZ Winegrowers.

    Nations of wine’ sets ambitious agenda for global rule-maker
    By Andrea Fox
    Auckland lawyer Dr John Barker is the first director-general of the International Organisation of Vine and Wine from outside Europe in 100 years.

    The new Kiwi director-general of the International Organisation of Vine and Wine says his ambitions for the start of the influential viticulture body’s second century include a strong science focus on climate change and sustainability.

    Dr John Barker, the first OIV director-general to be elected from outside Europe, and voted in by 46 of 47 eligible state members, said he was also committed to increasing its membership and raising its global recognition, as the body marks its 100th year.

    The Auckland lawyer who has specialised in the wine industry since his university days started his new job based in Dijon, France, this month.

    • “ambitions for the start of the influential viticulture body’s second century include a strong science focus on climate change and sustainability”
      another wanker who will fuck up the industry if he believes this climate change shit.
      If they actually followed the science they will see it’s all bullshit, but hey sounds good making all these stupid woke statements.

    T’S OVER!!! The Judge SCREWED THE POOCH!!!!

    Conflict of interest between the judge and E.Jean Carroll’s attorney. Not disclosing the judge was the mentor of the attorney when they worked together in a NY law firm. A breach of ethics to add to all the rest of the nonsense in this bizarre court case.

    Liz Craig will take a holiday with her husband.

    Over the next couple of months, Craig will think about her work in child health monitoring, climate change, the environmental and community engagement space and reflect on where to go next.

    Craig was defeated by the National MP for Invercargill Penny Simmonds.

    The final vote was 18,578 to Simmonds, 9689 to Craig, a difference of 8889, and 1689 to Act’s Scott Donaldson.

    • What the hell is the point of that post Viking.
      Another of your many senile posts.
      This was from election night over 3 months ago.

      so bloody what.
      Are we meant to analyse it for you?
      Jenny Simmonds got double the vote of liebourite Craig.
      Craig got 9689 votes as a well beaten loser and still got 50% more votes than all the votes combined for Matt King’s party.
      Is that what you are trying to tell us ?

  11. Emergency services have been called out to an incident at Victoria University of Wellington. [Wow, it is actually called that, Niiiice ]

    A Fire and Emergency spokesperson said they had responded to an automatic alarm at one of the science blocks….there was “some sort of reaction” going on, the spokesperson said, but they had to wait for hazmat suits to arrive so they could go in and find out what it was.
    There were five fire crews and two police vehicles at the scene, including two hazmat trucks and breathing apparatus.
    ————————-

    Hell. I thought you always had to wear a hazmat suit to a NZ University now, they are so toxic.
    Just sayin’ !!!

    @MurfittTauranga
    This OIA information I received on Friday is interesting. We know that Bloomfield has confirmed on behalf of the Working Group International Health Regulations (“WGIHR”) that they will circumvent Article 55 of the current International Health Regulations, which allows state parties four months to consider any amendments prior to the World Health Assembly in May 2024. The amendments which have been worked on behind closed doors since early 2023 should have been released yesterday, being 27 January 2024. Why has the Ministry of Health, via the Public Health Agency, redacted information about the WGIHR their OIA response? They are claiming that the reason to withhold satisfies section 9(2)(h) of the Official Information Act 1982 as there is legal privilege. Where is the transparency given we fund the Government and our elected representatives are meant to represent us and be accountable? If there is nothing to see, they should release the information. More interesting information to come.

  13. awww stinking hot today tax dodgers. Spent 3 hours at Karon beach sunning my magnificent body. Went for a couple of swims. Bumped into a jellyfish. Apologised. Hightailed it to Patong for a chicken kebab and a beer.
    I’ll have a relax in the pool shortly then down to Nai Harn beach bar for 3x500ml almost frozen Heinekens and a perv.
    Lifes good trendsetters. 😎
