  1. Full Moon and very bright – I see now there was some kind of an eclipse last night but didn’t know, didn’t look.
    It is called a worm moon this month, signalling the emergence of earthworms as temperatures warm in the northern hemisphere.
    I am sure there is some significance between that and all the useless MSM – Green and Labour MP’s leaving, being forced to leave ad being picked off by the bird of righteousness lately but cannot quite configure that at the moment.

  2. Seems like the Dung Puncher and National Traitor, Christopher Finlayson and Serial Tosser, Matthew Hooton, the Master Planner of the Todd Muller coup, do not like the prospect of democracy being carried out in this country, especially when it relates to the Principles of Te Triki Triti.

    Say’s two things.

    1. Not a lot complimentary about Finlayson nor Hooton or their love of democracy.
    2. ACT must be over the target.

    • Like all people of fucked up personal systems Fndlaysons attitude is the he knows best yet his world of reality is far way from the other 95% of citizens in NZ.
      He was railroaded into parliament as a list MP.
      Screwed us all with both treaty and GCSB portfolios.
      Never did anything for productive people nor for enriching the country as a whole.
      Worse than Cullen, a nasty supercilious prick.

      He and Key can both fuck off and join cindy at Harvard.
      If you watched that video the other day about Phsycopaths it describes all three of them.

      Luxon I suspect cares but is so politically naive that he will struggle to be great in the job.

      Its time also that they sent Orr and his board at RBNZ to join Harvard or some other woke outfit and replaced them with more astute people. Orr is close to causing a recession that will hurt many. Too big an ego.
      While willis is at the budget perhaps she can cut Otago’s funding by the same or more than they are paying the Turd Tickler.

    • Read all of that and the jump to the ACT connection in an effort to see if the actual proposed referendum was mentioned in detail. No, couldn’t find it but the many (100’s) of letters in the second article were at least 90% in favour.

      “Former Treaty minister Chris Finlayson called a ‘Māori-loving ****’, slams Act’s referendum idea??”

      It was the Five Principles that gave Finlayson an open cheque book to settle claims on his own when he was National’s Minister of Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations.

      This un-elected MP had an open cheque book to hand over taxpayer’s money, land or assets to one small group of NZ citizen that can claim a minute trace of Maori ancestry. And he excelled at it.

      Prior to entering parliament, Finlayson was the leader of the legal team that won the $170 million claim by Ngai Tahu that had sold all their land before the Tiriti was signed in 1840.

      At Bell Gully he spent years fighting for Ngāi Tahu against the government, pursuing its treaty claims through a series of high-profile court battles.

      “I used to love going to the office in the morning when we were suing the Crown” Finlayson said in a speech in 2009.

      Ngāi Tahu mastered the art of aggressive litigation, whether it was suing the Waitangi Tribunal, National’s Treaty negotiations minister Doug Graham or the Director-General of Conservation.

      “It was take no prisoners and it resulted in a good settlement.The signing of the Treaty deal with Ngāi Tahu in 1997 was the highlight of my legal career”.

      Why was this not considered a “Conflict Of Interest” prior to him becoming Minister of Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations?

      • “Why was this not considered a “Conflict Of Interest” prior to him becoming Minister of Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations?”

        There is a simple answer to that question Francis. John Key when appointing Finlayson, had no concept of the simple understanding, term or consequences of “Conflict of Interest.”

        A lot of where we are as a divided country today, can squarely be placed at the feet of John Phillip Key and the National Party from 2008 to 2016.

  3. A man who probably still hasn’t got his flag back, Russell Norman and his Greenpeace organisation, is just plainly dishonest, He says this about SailGP.

    “Yes, it is exciting as the foils slice through the water at up to 100km/h, but is it really worth killing dolphins for a boat race?”

    Where is there any evidence or where is Norman’s evidence that any dolphins anywhere have been killed in this, or any “boat race’?

    There is no evidence, but this does not stop Norman continue to lie. Again this crap from Norman.

    “As for Coutts’ gratuitous attack on Ngāti Wheke, thank goodness they stood up for the dolphins because it is clear SailGP couldn’t care less.”

    How does Norman know that SailGP or Russell Coutts does not care for “the dolphins”, did he ask or canvass Coutts or SailGP on this matter and did they confirm that they did not care about “the dolphins” or is Russell Norman just making things up again to be both mischievous and disingenuous.

    Norman has no evidence to back his claims and it is also clear that the NZ Herald has not asked Norman of this but are happy to publish Normans unfounded claims and unfounded opinion.

      • Thanks for your concern Ed but I doubt the twat even reads my posts, has no curiosity outside their own narcissistic inward looking perception. The world is going to hell in a handcart run by selfish communists. It’s amazing what is going on and I for one am interested as I’d rather know what they are planning for us. A sad, ignorant little person gets a thrill downticking… Whoop-di-bloody-do. Just scroll on past anything that bores you sonny.

        Have a great day, I am.

      If Trump can take out El baddy with a rocket then the Russians can do the same to Welensky and a few others.
      That would stop the crap going down.
      The US has backed off supporting Israel and is handing money to Hamas. Needless to say the Jews there ain’t that happy.

    • shhhh… 😉
      TAH has a great scheme, like those rope tows for skiers, & would have the contract to tow all the electric vehicles up past the Chateau to the Top of the Bruce, Whakapapa ski field.
      Then with all that down hill, regenerative power would recharge those batteries for the rest of the day, where ever they go.
      TAH has over whelming support from the guardians of the mountain, and the only issue is the division of the massive profits.

      It has been also been noted how the trains get to the high point of near the Raurimu Spiral & Tunnels are so connected that their massive surplus momentum of regenerative power back to the national grid on the way back to be near the coast in Auckland & Wellington.

      Such a case years ago on the West Coast, the Denniston Incline cable ways of rail that not even an engine was required, but consider all that surplus wasted energy 🙂

      …. The braking system adopted resembled a direct-acting horizontal winding engine, but the action was directly opposite.
      Water was used to check the action of pistons, instead of steam to give them motion.
      The water was drawn off at each stroke and replaced by a fresh supply, as the severe pressure would raise it to boiling point.
      There was also a very effective strap brake around the raised centre of the drum that could be used in emergency or when bringing a load to a stop.
      It could be wound up tight by the brakeman for this purpose. ….

      Yep, so much spare energy one could have boiling water for a cup of tea, plus hot showers & scald a pig. 🙂

    • All you Heathens who are doubling down on me, because of my lust for silence in this matter, really winds me up.

      Why, I ask, can I not keep this great advancement for mankind to myself until it is finished. The centre for Brown Outs across the country will come from the King Country, just not this one. Having a 100% Electric Bus fleet in the King Country where there is no bus service is another feat and spark of brilliance, for which this King Country can be rightly proud and again, something I wish to keep to myself.

  4. Two women were comparing notes on the difficulties of running a small business.

    “I started a new practice last year,” the first one said.

    “I insist that each of my employees take at least a week off every three months.”

    “Why in the world would you do that?” the other asked.

    She responded, “It’s the best way I know of to learn which ones I can do without.”

  6. A man is laying in the hospital, waiting to be the first person in history to receive a brain transplant…
    A doctor comes in and says “Congratulations! But unfortunately since this is a new procedure your insurance isn’t going to cover it all. So we’re going to give you 3 choices for brains and you can decide which you can afford”

    The man says to the doctor “Ok, what are they?”

    The doctor says “well, first there’s engineer brain, that’s $100 an ounce. Then there’s astrophysicist brain, that’ll cost you $200 an ounce. Finally there’s economist brain. That’s the most expensive at $1000 an ounce.”

    The man looks at the doctor, surprised. “that’s absurd! Why is the economist brain so expensive?”

    The doctor turns to him and says “sir, do you have any idea how many economists it takes to get an ounce of brain?”

  7. I was in Waharoa the other day and I noticed three sets of main road width reducing systems being built. You know the sort: brick and concrete sections that restrict the width of the main road at certain points, like plaque in the coronary arteries of a South Aucklander.

    These restrictors are a danger to cyclists. Instead of being able to ride on the side of the road, a safe distance from the heavy trucks thundering through from Matamata to Auckland, the cyclists are now forced into the path of these juggernauts.

    I don’t think the road designers thought this through very well.

    A teacher who locked students out of his classroom, threw whiteboard markers, called students ‘retards’ and ‘nut jobs’, and got angry when he played the wrong tune on his keyboard has been censured for serious misconduct.

    The Tribunal acknowledged the lack of support Vowell had received as a new teacher, and the likely bias he suffered due to his gender dysphoria, but said it was incumbent on him to “manage himself professionally in front of students, to maintain dignity and to refrain from lowering himself professionally in a way that is likely to bring disrepute to the profession”.

  10. Professor Robert MacCulloch: The Blame for NZ’s Recession lies with our Prejudiced Big Media

    Next time Big Media gangs up with politicians against the public, it should realize one day it will pay a price. That price is the disdain we now have for it, because it betrayed us. Big Media’s betrayal resulted in the suffering of countless people due to our recession & cost-of-living crisis. Instead of apologizing, journos now run sad stories painting Luxon as a cheat by claiming a housing allowance & Seymour as racist. They call it upholding democracy. NZ’s Big Media misled us. Not our politicians. They were just being politicians. Prejudiced Big Media lost its integrity.

  11. Why Is The National Guard Being Deployed During The Great American Eclipse On April 8th?

    The National Guard is only supposed to be deployed in emergency situations. But these days the National Guard is being used for all sorts of things. For example, hundreds of National Guard soldiers are being used to check the bags of those riding the subway system in New York City. That sets a very alarming precedent, and I don’t understand why more people aren’t upset about this. And now we have learned that National Guard troops will be deployed during the Great American Eclipse on April 8th. What in the world do they expect to happen during this eclipse?

    This from ACT suggests a “report” is the way it is going.

    Oh SH*T, it’s starting. Putin LAUNCHES massive military response | Redacted with Clayton Morris with Col. Douglas MacGregor

    Russia launched massive strikes across Ukraine in response to Ukraine’s terror attack in Moscow. Energy and intelligence assets were leveled in preparation for larger strikes in the coming weeks. According to military experts this is the beginning of the end for Ukraine and when warmer weather dries out the ground Russian forces will take Odesa.

    • Talk about coming in hot!!

      Russian army launched several hypersonic missiles from occupied Crimea. They covered the distance of 580 km to Kyiv in 3 minutes at an estimated speed of 11,600 km/h (7,200mph). Hence the air raid siren system did not turn on in time. Suspected to be Zircon cruise missiles.

      Kyiv Post’s sources within the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) have confirmed that two ballistic missiles were launched from Russian-occupied Crimea toward Kyiv on Monday and were aimed at the SBU offices.

Climate Change and the environmental zealots are going to face a hard turn. We’re watching the Green Party self immolate.

  16. The Chinese Communist Party has aggressively built up its military, expanding its arsenal of both conventional and nuclear capabilities. The growth was largely funded by its rival, the United States.

    “In just that one area of the navy, they’ve gone from being an inferior, coastal, brown water navy … to being a global navy.”
    “We did that. Wall Street and our investors gave them the money to grow their economy and to build the weapons to kill us,” he said.

    To prevent the regime from rising, “the first rule of strategy is don’t assist your enemy,” said Mr. Thayer, co-author of the new book, “Embracing Communist China: America’s Greatest Strategic Failure.”

    “Of course, we violated that time and time again.”

    But then, on another front, namely the hellhole that is Gloriavale, the perversions enabled by religion are being exposed. From https://www.stuff.co.nz/culture/350224657/escaping-utopia-part-2-shes-not-safe-here :

    ……”the viewer is told that fathers and husbands are taught it’s their role to teach children about sex.” ……..

    …….“ “We had to watch my mum and dad have sex,” one former member continues off-screen, recalling she would have been about 8 years old.”……..

    …….”Girls are responsible for turning men on, where the boys are taught they can’t be expected to control their urges.”…….

    This is religion. It isn’t Islam. It’s Christianity. This is religion, not a hundred years ago, but religion practised in NZ today!

  21. “Shadowgate,” while banned on YouTube, is available on alternative non-censoring sites such as Bitchute and Banned.video. The film reveals how a “shadow government” is manipulating society from behind the scenes and using psychological warfare tactics against the American public.

    Who Are the Real ‘Puppet Masters’?
    While many career politicians are certainly part of the so-called shadow government, the real puppet masters behind it all are people that most of us are unfamiliar with. These are the individuals Weaver focuses on in her film. The real shadow government, Weaver says, consists of government contractors and defense and intelligence officials.

    “[Government] contractors have used their connections, power and influence to create an unprecedented international criminal enterprise where blackmail is traded and people’s personal data is gold.” ~ Millie Weaver

    But just how could a shadow government arise in the first place? According to Weaver, the reason they’ve managed to operate in the shadows and gain power for so long is because most of the actual work in government is done by subcontractors. This way, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests aimed at government departments turn up very little out of the ordinary. The real “dirt” remains hidden in the archives of “contractors in clandestine networks.”

    • you said aussie economy not WA was going down the gurgler. (dont have a hissy, but dont be like kea and claim predictions you never made)
      WA is always boom and bust, we lived there 2009-2012 and during that time many mines closed down and by time we left most reopened plus many new ones come online.

      china fucked up with the coal, they tried to bully aussie and lost, plenty of other buyers locked in coal deals and china got told to take a hike.

      from what ive seen over there the big mining companies go nuts and pay megabux to establish mines, operate for 1-2yrs, close/mothball the operation citing high cost/low returns and then a year or so later sell to a subsidiary etc and restart the mine paying locals a much lower wage to work there.
      the megabux spent at the start is used to attract a solid workforce to get setup quickly with minimal delay, they cant then just give paycuts and expect staff to be happy so they play god and then make local communities beg once the sugar hit has worn off. seems to work tho, the outsiders fuck off along with all the trouble they bring and locals get a steady job that still pays better then anything else in the area… just 35-40bux an hour instead of the 80-100 the boom times payed.

        Plus a surprising number from my area that have settled over that way who have become experienced with rolling with the ups & downs, and also set up niches for their specialities, plus well skilled in diversifying on seeing an opportunity.
        I have been pleasantly surprised, as that extends back well back into last century.

          • Should be a good break at the end of the year to catch up with your friends, & see the places where time is relentless in that it is the same, but changed, sort on a different level.

            Plus the kids seeing where you had a different life.
            You will find it being busy to have everything organized on the home front before your sojourn.

            Flies are just unbelievable for what little I recall, and really hope they are not really so bad.
            Closest to Aussie I’ve have been is to the 12 mile territorial sea limit off the New South Wales coast & had thought for the flies that did not get to us.

            The heat, well there are sort of little tricks to better to handle it, or to just cope, as have worked up on the northside of PNG.
            What I could not believe was just how many litres of water to drink, and no need to have a piss.

            My brother, a number of times has said he would not return to New Zealand, but then he enjoys when back in NZ, catching up with old friends, like at the Christmas Parade turn out, , even the ANZAC parades that continue on at the Club, & BBQ’s which sort of have reunion festive catch up.
            Now admits he misses that in particular, though it sounds he has also good friendships in Aussie as well.

            You have a real treasure, a wife, and kids, even if you have to home school them.
            Soon enough, like a dozen years that will fly in your “fun” with the kids, … you will be back to Darby & Joan & be free to roam, or follow (visit) the kids to where ever they may get to, or what you fancy.

          we can send logs abroad, mill them and ship em back as timber and other products for same cost or cheaper then could be done in nz.

  24. KIWIBUILD STILL A VERY TOUGH SELL
    It is tough selling houses these days. Now KiwiBuild is having to discount them to get them moved. Kāinga Ora says its Alfriston committed duplexes with two bedrooms, 74m2 (but no car park) start at $675,000.

    bloody good job. They can stop building fancy shit houses.

  25. Infrastructure Minister Chris Bishop wants to have a National Infrastructure Agency and a 30-year pipeline of projects up and running by 2025.

    In a speech to the Infrastructure Funding & Financing Conference, the senior minister said New Zealand’s $100 billion infrastructure deficit was a major drag on economic performance.

    “This deficit has not come about by accident. It is the product of decades of poor practice across successive governments,” he said.

    The New Zealand Infrastructure Commission, an autonomous Crown entity, has been told to develop a 30-year National Infrastructure Plan by the end of 2025.

    It will include a “pipeline” of infrastructure projects planned in the next 10 years, a broader set of “priorities” which could be selected in the next five to 15 years, and a high level “needs assessment” for the next 30 years.

    Yea to that. Has to be made so that politicians can’t fick around with it each 3 years.
    +1 for bishop today.

  26. NZDSOS is deeply disappointed to hear the New Zealand Teachers (NZTSOS) lost their appeal against the Covid-19 vaccine mandates in court.

    We stand alongside our teachers, forced out of their profession because they didn’t receive an unproven medical treatment, still in clinical trials at the time.

    The Court has failed to uphold the fundamental right to decline medical treatment.

  27. Seems like an over reach by the Australian government bureaucracy, or is it? as they are aligned with us in 5 Eyes, Albanese, Trudeau & our Ardern in mission creep of “Christchurch Call” supported by Luxon.

    This woman (yes, she’s female) is part of a panel of 20 ‘experts’ hired by the @WHO

    Then read up the on the official Australian government threats against him about “cause serious harm to the complainant” in the link below.
    A brave man, exposing the truth & hoping for the “Streisand effect” 🙂

    …. …. So with all due respect, I am not taking my tweet down. What @elonmusk and @X
    do is their call.
    I know they do what they must in following the law.

    Some of you may recall Billboard Chris is a Canadian, wearing a billboard that does not appeal to the lgbtq……
