  1. What’s the bet this jacked up Kangaroo Court finds against the Government, a case bought by a serial, hypocrite Trougher, one Lady Moxon, who dislikes Colonialism so much she has accepted the titular title of “Lady”

    Has the Waitangi Tribunal ever in any case put before it found against Maori. I bet my left Nut, it hasn’t.

    • Mo,No,No.
      had me breaky, cleaned out the freezer and put out the rubbish all the while listening to the radio where the man has a woman voice and the woman a mans voice.
      Neither gay as far I can tell. Both marries with kids.

      hormones seem to be all ficked around these days.

      Oh and opened my email and YSB just to check on you.

    • i dont get the need for this woke shit at a museum? its a museum ffs, theyre usually nuetral on political and ideological stuff.

      from reading that crap it sounds like a bunch of bro “taonga” has been found but has a hefty pricetag and some clack bunt dosent think maori should pay for the repatriation costs so viola lets woke the museum into it.

      • SB, it is a War Memorial Museum not a Native Museum.

        Well it was established as a “War Memorial Museum” but obviously the Founders of the Museum were wrong in their interpretation of what the Museum stood for.

        • Is there a War Memorial to all the Maori killed in the 40 years before the Tiriti (is that correct Te Raro. I’m neither woke nor proficient here like luxon ? ) where there was mass slaughter by mauri on Maori once they acquired 3 things post-stone age from YTie

          1. Guns/muskets ; rather than just the literal sticks and stones they had before
          2. horses so they could maraud further and kill people they never had the chance to before
          3. food and storage containers (glass and pottery) so they could do this wider marauding; preserved food that is protein based.

          All enabled of course by the white fulla bringing it over.
          They can pay for the Memorial 🙂
          Blurry colonisers.

          Or should I just zip it sweetie ?

      It’s really not surprising, and is actually in perfect conformance with the NWO’s dikat to get rid of a nation’s history as part of the creation of their ‘New World’ .

      Expect more of the same as the ‘order increases it’s influence.

  2. Big Media are reporting that their mate, former Finance Minister Grant Robertson “will retire from Parliament next month as he becomes the vice-chancellor of his alma mater Otago University”.

    What an outrage. Vice Chancellors are meant to be distinguished scholars. Meant to have a PhD. Meant to have had a lifetime of researching & teaching at the highest level.

  3. New Zealand Prime Minister Christopher Luxon has announced a strict regime of sanctions to “reset” the nation’s welfare system.

    The prime minister on Feb. 19, said the sanctions could see benefits gets reduced or cut entirely if requirements are not met, like attending job interviews.

    Speaking at his post-Cabinet press conference, Mr. Luxon said on average New Zealanders were spending an average of 13 years on a benefit, and teenagers on welfare, were trapped there for an average of 24 years of their working life.
    He said there was “great evidence” of the need for further welfare sanctions, saying the previous Labour government’s decision to drop them, led to more time spent on unemployment benefits.

    • its hilarious watching the left meltdown over this cuz they think only being on bene for 24yrs is hard done by and they deserve more.

      imo they need to get even stricter with the “jobseekers”, something like forced job placements that winz can dish out after say 6mnths or x amount of failed interviews.
      maccas and kfc always seem to be hiring and takes little skill so send em there on a job placement… yeah i know it wont work because 80% on jobseeker dont actually want a job ffs but thats the point, use a job to weed the scum out.

      • I reckon if you’re on Jobseeker and you don’t have a job, then you should turn up 40hrs per week and sweep streets or whatever. None of this sitting on your couch to get paid by me. Why does everyone accept that if you’re on the bene you don’t have to do anything for it?

        • Nah. If on bene :-

          Pay the rent directly to landlord, pay all dues on power, phone, utilities, fines so they get paid. Easy enough.
          Let them come in twice week to collect balanced food suitable for the number of people they claim are dependent.
          Supply petrol vouch/debit card for maybe $40 a week.
          Then $40 cash for discretionary spending.
          make them pick up the food between 8am and 1pm on a prescribed weekday so they have to make an effort …. or go hungry.

          Dont like it, get a job.

          Purely theoretical.
          If this was proposed luxon for weep for 500 hours straight.
          Willis would make them read English lit like she did then test them when they collect the food. Fail test, no food.
          Get boosted Bish would find a way to make them get a booster every pickup, while puffing on a vape behind the collection centre.

        When ‘The Dole’ pays MORE than the ‘Work’ (As has been the case for many years) there is absolutely NO reason to go looking for employment, and as a result, until the amount being paid to the ‘unemployed’ changes (Is reduced) nothing will change.

  4. NZ nurses flee to Australia in droves despite recent pay-rise.
    A recent pay boost wasn’t enough to keep over 9,000 New Zealand nurses from registering to work in Australia in the past 10 months. Attracted by higher salaries and better work conditions, this exodus comes as no surprise.

      plus many others from all walks of life.

      2guys at work leave for aussie next week, 4 mates leave march/april, wifey has 2 mates leaving in march plus we know 4 or 5 others that have left since xmas. with the exception of 1 couple theyre all under 30, fleeing to make a better life for themselves and i dont blame them, we seriously contemplated it last year but chose to give nz 1 more year and see what happens…. heading over late december for a few weeks, see if it ends up permanent!

  5. Government decision-making that is problem-defining and subject to rigorous cost-benefit policy is very effective.

    There are seven more decision-making principles in the coalition agreement.

    The most transformative is that “decisions will be based on data and evidence, with programmes regularly assessed to see if they are delivering results … Interventions that aren’t delivering results will be stopped.” The agreement says that the assessment of government programmes will be “based on rigorous cost-benefit analysis”.
    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/this-coalition-govt-is-promising-revolutionary-change-but-making-it-a-reality-will-be-the-challenge-richard-prebble/NRPOXJ324BEKTCVNSNWZGBNYVM/

    he eighth decision-making principle is “upholding the principles of liberal democracy, including equal citizenship, Parliamentary sovereignty, the rule of law and property rights, especially with respect to interpreting the Treaty of Waitangi”.

    New Zealand Transport Agency Waka Kotahi wants to install more camera surveillance to issue citizens with three million fines a year. Speeding tickets to the well-off are a cost of motoring. For many young men, the fines are unaffordable and their first step on a path to prison and a wasted life. Camera surveillance and issuing citizens with revenue-raising fines is what police states do.

    Christopher Luxon’s experience as a CEO must have been influential in the coalition adopting a business management approach to governmental decision-making. But the words are just gesture politics unless they are implemented.

    Is that a hint that Luxflakes and willis are already giving in to the public servants?

No difference to being in the armed forces – you’re likely going to kill people and run the risk of being killed yourself. Lefty snowflakes can’t accept the harsh realities of life outside their cocoons where being called names is enough to knock them off their perch.

      • Mitchell or any westerner does not have the automatic right to go to these countries and kill locals.
        That is an invasion. He is clearly a low life mercenary and should not be Minister of Poolice in NZ.

        He made himself judge, jury and executioner, for $$$$$
        He is not fit to be on the executive.
        This gives me the right to go up to him in the street and blow him away . He has established this baseline.
        Not that I will.

        But it also gives the right of Arabs to come to US and fly planes into buildings (if they even did this) ; to go to France – who were part of the ruination of Libya and wrecked the safety and standard of living of the people there – and mow down dozens of people in a truck.
        It gives the right of the Taliban to come to NZ and shoot people as they choose.
        Justify one, you have to justify the other.

        You people here give the right to Mitchel to be judge jury and executioner.
        Well they have the right to reciprocate.

        You are giving the right to maori radicals to kill you…as they see fit, based on their ‘value set’ as much as you give Mitchel the right on his value set.
        It is one or the other, not a one way value.

        Get the drift, he was a mercenary killer so live by the gun, die by the gun.

        This is a bit above the pay grade of many of YSB, but reflect on it.

        • In the same vein, but actually more with an active intent governmental blessing by many of the people of New Zealand.
          New Zealand has supplied armaments & ammunition to Ukrainians.
          To even be more effective in killing Russians continue to train Ukrainians.
          Also NZ is using its Intelligence systems with satellite connections to advise about Russian troops & movements so they can be better targeted by the Ukrainians.
          All instigated under the “kindness” & “well being” Labour Party,

          Well supported by the opposition parties, and so it continues on.

          So Russia can see that NZ is at war with them.
          Some quiet sabotage would be on the cards to keep NZ more busy, like if the Cook Strait electric cable was badly damaged?

          A few good computer hacks on NZ banks, government department systems would keep NZ more busy, prove profitable, & keep New Zealand busy in other ways.

          A pile of up of economic costs may make NZ reconsider that deployment in Europe?

          The bonus donations to reward Hamas through UNWRA before last Christmas, was a great concession to the cause.

          Now has Nicky Hagar got all it all sorted, as we really missed his last book just before the 2023 elections?
          They will all have the time to research M. Mitchell fully, coming up with dates, hours, names, colleagues, etc… 🙂

        “COVID Vaccine mRNA Can ‘Spread Systemically’ to Placenta and Infants of Women Vaccinated During Pregnancy
        A new report demonstrates for the first time the ability of COVID-19 vaccines to penetrate the fetal-placental barrier and reach the intrauterine environment.
        COVID Vaccine mRNA Can ‘Spread Systemically’ to Placenta and Infants of Women Vaccinated During Pregnancy

        A new report suggests vaccine mRNA does not remain at the injection site following vaccination but can “spread systemically” to the placenta and umbilical cord blood of infants whose mothers are vaccinated during pregnancy.

        In a peer-reviewed pre-proof accepted for publication in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, researchers presented two cases that demonstrate, for the first time, the ability of COVID-19 vaccines to penetrate the fetal-placental barrier and reach the inside of the uterus. Additionally, researchers detected spike protein in placental tissue, indicating the bioactivity of the mRNA in reaching the placenta.
        Researchers vaccinated two pregnant women with mRNA vaccines shortly before delivery to determine whether the mRNA in COVID-19 vaccines reached the placenta or fetus following maternal vaccination.

        Cleveland Clinic
        “The primary objective of the study was to investigate the knowledge gaps surrounding mRNA therapies during pregnancy, utilizing the COVID-19 vaccine as a foundation for future mRNA therapeutic developments, given its established use,” the study’s corresponding author, Dr. Nazeeh Hanna, a neonatologist, told The Epoch Times by email.
        Researchers Find Vaccine mRNA in Samples
        The first patient, “Patient 1,” was a 34-year-old woman at 38 weeks and four days gestation who received two Pfizer vaccine doses and two booster doses—one Pfizer and one Moderna. The Moderna booster dose was administered two days before the delivery of a healthy baby by cesarean section.
        The second patient, “Patient 2,” was a 33-year-old woman at 40 weeks gestation. She received two Pfizer vaccine doses. The last dose was given 10 days before vaginal delivery of a healthy baby.

        According to the paper, researchers found detectable vaccine mRNA in both placentas tested. The localization of the vaccine mRNA was mainly in the villus stroma—the connective tissue layer that supports the fetal capillaries and villous trophoblast. The villous trophoblast, the primary barrier between maternal and fetal tissues, supports the exchange of nutrients between a mother and her fetus.

        ‘What I’ve Seen in the Last 2 Years Is Unprecedented’: Physician on COVID Vaccine Side Effects on Pregnant Women
        Researchers also detected a “notably high signal” of vaccine mRNA in the placental decidua tissue of Patient 1, who received four vaccine doses. The decidua is the specialized endometrium layer that forms the base of the placental bed.

        Spike protein expression was also detected—but only in the placenta of Patient 2. However, vaccine mRNA was detected in Patient 1’s cord and maternal blood samples, which were unavailable for the second patient.

        The authors said the expression of spike protein in the placenta of the second patient but not in the first suggests that more than two days are necessary following vaccination for the mRNA to reach the placenta and be translated into the spike protein, which is then expressed in placental tissue.

        Finally, researchers found the integrity of vaccine mRNA varied across different samples—the vaccine’s ability to activate an immune response relies upon fully intact mRNA. According to the findings, vaccine mRNA was largely fragmented in the cord blood and less fragmented in the placenta. In the placentas, 23 percent and 42 percent of the initial integrity was retained in Patients 1 and 2, respectively. In maternal blood from Patient 1, the vaccine’s mRNA had a high level of integrity at 85 percent. Integrity decreased to 13 percent in cord blood, suggesting limited bioactivity.

        COVID-19 mRNA vaccines use lipid nanoparticles (LNPs) to deliver mRNA. “The findings suggest that lipid nanoparticles (LNPs) are capable of reaching the placenta and releasing mRNA within placental cells, where it is then translated into the spike (S) protein. However, by the time the mRNA reaches the fetus, it is no longer encapsulated by the LNPs, leading to its degradation (only 13% of the mRNA is intact in fetal circulation),” Dr. Hanna told The Epoch Times.

        Dr. Hanna noted that the authors of the recently published paper did not evaluate the implications of transient spike protein expression in the placenta or the effects of degraded mRNA on the fetus.

        Dr. Christiane Northrup, an obstetrician-gynecologist, is an advisory board member of MyCycleStory. She told The Epoch Times in an email, the group has been studying this kind of thing since the vaccine rollout in 2021. “There is no question whatsoever that the Covid 19 ‘vaccine’ ingredients are present in the placenta and throughout the body.”
        “There have also been VAERS [Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System] reports of infants dying of thrombocytopenia (low platelets) following maternal vaccination, and also evidence of infants having heart attacks in the womb following maternal vaccination. None of this is new information. It has simply been widely and systematically censored,” she added.

        Dr. Dan McDyer, an obstetrician-gynecologist, told The Epoch Times in an email that he is not surprised by the “discovery of evidence of mRNA from the SARS CoV-2 injections and/or SARS CoV-2 spike protein present in fetal cord blood and placental tissues.”

        “To me, the recommendation of administering this medication to pregnant women was one of the most irresponsible actions in the history of modern medicine. I am so disappointed that the entities charged with the mission of protecting public health (FDA) and women’s health (ACOG) were derelict in their duties because it only took me about 15 minutes of online research to determine that these lipid nanoparticles were going to cross the placenta and infect the fetus,” Dr. McDyer said.

        Dr. James Thorp, a board-certified obstetrician-gynecologist and maternal-fetal medicine physician, told The Epoch Times by email that the paper shows mRNA from both Pfizer and Moderna vaccines can cross the placenta into the fetal blood entering the placental tissue.

        “These authors observed a ‘notably high signal’ in the decidua, which is the lining of the uterus. This concentrated mRNA in the decidual tissues will be translated into high concentrations of spike protein, likely contributing to a myriad of devastating effects on human reproductive function—not just severe abnormalities of menstrual periods, but infertility, multiple pregnancy complications, and severe bleeding in pregnancy and in the post-partum period,” Dr. Thorp said.

        Dr. Thorp added that despite their “horrifying” findings, the authors still concluded their evidence “overwhelmingly supports” the COVID-19 vaccine’s effectiveness in mitigating the morbidity and mortality of COVID-19 in pregnant and non-pregnant women.
        Initial Clinical Trials Excluded Pregnant Women, Yet Studies Suggest mRNA Biodistribution
        Initial clinical trials for mRNA COVID-19 vaccines excluded pregnant women, so there was no biodistribution data on the mRNA in COVID-19 vaccines and its ability to reach the placenta or fetus following maternal vaccination. However, assessment reports provided to the European Medicines Agency by Pfizer and Moderna show that mRNA is distributed to various tissues, including the liver, adrenal glands, spleen, and ovaries in animal studies.
        An animal study cited by the authors of the paper shows that lipid nanoparticles of similar composition in other mRNA injections delivered functional mRNA to the placenta and other fetal organs.
        Two previous human studies by the same researchers assessed whether the mRNA in COVID-19 vaccines is present in the placenta following maternal vaccination using different methods. The first study failed to detect mRNA in maternal and cord blood or placental tissue. The researchers attributed this to the long interval between vaccination and delivery and the methodology used in the study. The second study using improved sensitivity to detect mRNA also did not reveal vaccine mRNA. However, the authors attributed this to the probe that targeted the SARS-CoV-2 gene rather than the vaccine mRNA sequence.

        In the current study, the authors used a more sensitive and robust approach which allowed them to have a more precise quantification of vaccine mRNA for superior accuracy, and a probe tailored explicitly for the vaccine mRNA, ensuring more reliable detection.

        “Animal work clearly shows the distribution of the lipid nanoparticles to several organs, including the liver, adrenal glands, spleen, and ovaries. So, reaching the placenta was not surprising. In humans, we have previously published that the vaccine mRNA can be distributed to breast milk.” Dr. Hanna told The Epoch Times.
        ‘Catastrophic on Several Levels’
        Dr. McDyer said the ability of the lipid nanoparticles to cross the placenta and infect the fetus could be “catastrophic on several levels,” impacting a developing fetal immune system.
        “Imagine this: The fetal immune system ‘learns’ the appearance of ‘self’ early on by recognizing molecules, MHCs (Major Histocompatibility Complexes), on the surface of all of our cells. This appearance of ‘self’ is most certainly disrupted by the appearance of spike protein on the surface of these cells (cell membranes) as induced by the ‘vaccines,’’’ he told The Epoch Times.

        “Additionally, fragments of spike protein will also likely appear in the MHCs on the cell surfaces. This causes a slight disfigurement of these MHCs which is likely to have an effect on the immune system’s capability to recognize ‘self,’” he added.

        Dr. McDyer said he is certain disrupting cellular homeostasis by distracting the fetal cells to produce foreign proteins, such as the spike protein, instead of the proteins necessary for a developing fetus, will have detrimental unknown consequences. He believes this explains why one of his colleagues, a pediatric neurosurgeon, has seen a few unborn babies who have had strokes, an event he says he has never heard of in his entire career until now.

        “We know that spike [protein] initiates clot formation, which can result in strokes,” Dr. McDyer said. “This is all so sad as it was completely unavoidable if normal, historical precautionary approaches were in place.”
        Dr. Hanna believes that introducing mRNA to the fetus may pose potentially plausible risks but may also yield biologically plausible benefits. “The potential of mRNA-based interventions in addressing maternal and fetal health issues is profound. Such insights could substantially advance the crafting of safer and more effective mRNA-based therapies during pregnancy,” he said.

    • Why do I find this very amusing today? 🙂

      ….. Auckland University Associate Professor Helen Petousis-Harris, and Co-Director, Global Vaccine Data Network said “by making the data publicly available, we are able to support greater transparency, and stronger communications to the health sector and public.” ….

      ….. The Ministry of Health has been approached for comment while Helen Petousis-Harris was on sick leave. ….

      Still it seems no comment from the NZ Ministry of Health.

  15. The rewriting of history continues.

    It’s been 200 years since scientists named the first dinosaur: Megalosaurus. In the centuries since, hundreds of other dinosaur species have been discovered and catalogued — their names inspired by everything from their physical characteristics to the scientists who first described them. Now, some researchers are calling for the introduction of a more robust system, which they say would ensure species names are more inclusive and representative of where and how fossils are discovered.

  16. More than 500 staff made redundant at Te Whatu Ora, paid out $9 million
    NZ Herald

    Health New Zealand – Te Whatu Ora is now 18 months old. Its leaders fronted up in Parliament today to highlight its challenges – and some of its successes.

    More than 500 staff have now been made redundant at Health New Zealand – Te Whatu Ora as part of major reforms of the healthcare sector.

    The reforms, which began in 2022, led to the merger of 20 district health boards and included reducing the duplication of “back-office” roles.

    Health NZ chief executive Margie Apa told the Health Committee at Parliament this morning that a directive was issued “on day one” to freeze recruitment on non-frontline roles.

    Since then, 2300 roles had been disestablished. Some staff had been redeployed but 500 people had so far been made redundant and were paid out a total of more than $9 million.

  17. Police make multiple arrests after vehicle crimes in Northland
    Karina Cooper
    Northland police have charged a second man after forestry workers claimed they were chased 20km along a Northland highway.

    Police revealed the arrests were part of their efforts targeting a group of associates carrying out a spree of vehicle crimes across the region’s roads.

    Detective Senior Sergeant John Clayton said the alleged offending took place in Ōmāpere, Opononi, and Tītoki in the past month.

    Last week the Advocate shared the ordeal of two forestry workers reportedly tailgated and rammed by two men in a stolen 4WD along State Highway 15 in the dark.

  18. A couple of days ago IAASB posed the question of why in an age of indiscriminate screwing the birth rate continues to drop. Maybe this provides the answer or part thereof:

    ……”A relatively unknown pesticide linked to infertility, disrupted fetal growth and delayed puberty can now be found in the bodies of 80% of Americans, a new study has shown.

    Chlormequat chloride, a plant growth regulator, used on grain crops in Europe and parts of North American, was detected in 77 of 96 American urine samples collected between 2017 and 2023, and 90% of the samples from 2023, raising public health concerns.”…….
