    • Lets all follow the MSM
      Russia bad, China bad, Iran bad, Iraq bad, Libya bad etc etc
      Lets sheeple it up

      In 2008 to 2011 China continued significant import of goods from NZ.
      Without it the standard of living would have dropped a lot.
      Like it did when England told NZ to fuck off in the early 1970s
      And US has significant trade barriers. Always has for us .

      Yet NZ going and rushing into wars with the worlds chief war mongers -US and UK (England)
      Where England goes, don’t follow… would make more sense.

      These are the pricks who with the yellow-bellied French wrecked the well functioning nation of Libya.
      It was a secular state where the Church was separate from the State operations.
      Literacy was high (94%, ) and free medical care for all- unlike the war-mad USA .

      But YOU want to criticise Iran who has never done any harm to NZ
      They have not even come here and got fake passports
      They didn’t even send us shop lifter supreme Golriz; she escaped with her parents and lies about it.
      How they must laugh at that!

      They had their considerable overseas assets frozen in 1980 because they rejected the US abuse of oil their country. The US performed a coup there in 1953 in order to control the oil and oil wealth via the fake Shah, but no!, fuckwits on here want to take the lying MSM line that ‘Iran Bad ‘ coz Mr teevee told me so .

      NZ was on its knees in the 1970s after Mudder England told us to go fuck ourselves; they want to play with Europe; buggers they have frequent wars with.
      Also the oil shocks from Israeli wars .

      so
      Trade with Iran AFTER the Ayatollah took over and the great Satan Americans were kicked out..

      “The trade was in its heyday in the 1980s when there were 22 sheep for every Kiwi, and high volume markets were desperately needed. Back then Iran took more than 100,000 tonnes of frozen carcasses a year, or one lamb in four. ”

      So. Iran took a quarter of our meat while England with our little old queenie told us to F.O. and US had massive trade barriers.
      Ooooh, those Iranians must be bad. Better send in Rambo!

      From Te Ara

      —————
      In 1973 the New Zealand economy faltered as export prices fell and the price of oil went through the roof. All of New Zealand’s oil supply was imported.

      The European Economic Community (EEC) came to dictate world prices in livestock products through the Common Agricultural Policy subsidy regime. When subsidies rose, world prices fell by that amount. US traders, with a similar set-up, could match these prices, but unsubsidised exporters, such as New Zealand, faced depressed prices and uneconomic competition
      ————
      stupid NZ followed the rules while the Euros ,the poms and the US were crooks.
      Silly NZ
      But still we (the goo-mint) rush off to their wars
      —————
      ….The General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) Tokyo round of trade talks (1973–79) was disappointing for New Zealand. The talks covered goods that accounted for 90% of world trade, and negotiations ranged more widely than previously. Agricultural trade was meant to feature in the final agreement, but this did not happen as the US drove a quick deal with Europe and Japan…
      ————-
      right; so who fucked us ?

      it was not Iran , or China, or Russia
      It was the war mongering Yanks

      The yanks tell us that Iran should not have nuclear and yet the only country in the world to have deliberately murdered civilian human beings in their beds with a nuclear/atomic bomb is the USA. If they had lost they would have been done for war crimes.
      Notwithstanding their massive firebombing of civilians in Japan.
      And the main reason they went this route was to get to Japan as a strategic war base -still there 4/5 of a century later – before Russia got there

      So yeah, I’m not going to celebrate this killing at all.

          Ask no quarter, give no quarter, take no quarter !

          I agree with your agreement
          ..but.. with a slight modification

          …except that USA has a Swamp problem that they don’t seem to be able to get rid of…
          —————-

          Can anyone name a war outside Africa in the last 20 years that has NOT been started by the filthy swamp of Washington D.C. /CIA/Pentagon/ McDonnell Douglas etc

          Iran has not. It had its assets frozen (Stolen) since 1980. Iraq as well
          This is the US criminality.

          Here is a little Gem as a result of US criminality. From RT :
          …The US is re-evaluating a ban on Russian diamonds, introduced by the EU and G7 last year, due to multiple complaints from the industry,..
          and
          …Russia, the world’s biggest producer of rough diamonds by volume, largely redirected its diamond trade to China, India, the UAE, Armenia, and Belarus last year. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov warned in December that the ban would have a boomerang effect on Western countries, hitting their own economies by depriving them of Russian diamonds, while Russia’s diamond industry would barely be affected…

          Oh Dear

          • Did Russia invade and start a war with Ukraine? Did Hamas (Iran funded) attack and Israel and start a war? I am sure you will somehow mangle some facts to show the US was really behind both these wars but the US has not and is not particpating in these ware but is supply the invaded countries with weapons and aid whihc is what a friednly country should do.

            • USA is only friendly towards Ukraine for its own interests, namely Biolabs and money laundering. USA could not give a fuck about the average Ukrainian. That’s why its happy to test its weapons using Ukrainian soldiers….

            • There would not be a Ukraine war if the USA had not overthrown the elected Ukraine government in 2014 so it could install a puppet regime and set up bioweapon labs, This was part of the neocon plan to weaken and eventually destroy Russia – a plan that Putin was well aware of.

    • Nz news media cant find any thing to cover that will not expose the agenda, so its dig up dirt on people to try and shame them. Its a perfectly good leftist tactic.
      On that, when can you ever remember the news reporting on so many private stories, ie, some one that is not a public figure got cancer, some poor old codger cant afford to live, some bird has scammed her way into owning a house. Never used to happen

      Would it be that the great LSZ would also come into being.
      Though the real problem being that the brain is not engaged, & linked into observation to do any thinking, as being dumbed down by the education system.

    • Exceeding a speed limit is an offence but is a victimless one – no one hurt/injured or even inconvenienced, compate with a Green MP for steals multiple times (Rela victom being the store whose goods she stole) the Tana !!!!!! and the allegation of Migrant abuse (another real victim) and then JAG whose actions with two floristswhilst technical assault so there is a victim but probably no rela injry, still none of these are fit and proper persons to represent their constituents.

  5. Haven’t watched this yet
    “I was as astonished as anyone might be that ivermectin has potential as an anti-cancer agent,” says cancer surgeon Dr. Kathleen Ruddy.
    She’s observed multiple cases where patients with severe, late stage cancer started to make a turn for the better after taking ivermectin.
    One patient with stage four prostate cancer tried all the traditional protocols like chemotherapy and radiation before being told that there was nothing left that his doctors could do. He started taking ivermectin as a last resort. In a few short months, he had made a stunning recovery.
    After observing several cases like this, Dr. Ruddy decided to launch a multicenter observational study on how repurposed drugs like ivermectin impact cancer survival rates.

    https://www.theepochtimes.com/epochtv/the-surprising-potential-of-ivermectin-against-cancer-dr-kathleen-ruddy-5649306?

    • I picked up the benefits of Ivermectin when the Governor of Uttah Pradesh – india – allowed its use in desperation to reverse the tide of covid which it did. Central Africa uses Ivermectim rotouinely against River Blindness and suffered low rates of covid in countries with poor health services – join the dots and then ask why our Politicians/Big Pharma and Elites banned Ivermectin a drug with a long history of few to no side affects. Now the head of US NIH admits social distancing was unecessary and useless, time for him and Fauci to be encouraged to tell the truth – the rack is a suitable device to extract the truth before its stretched to breaking point,

  7.  A Redneck in Arkansas calls 911 and says “ Help, I think my wife is dead”
    The 911 operator goes “ Sir, you think she is dead or is she really dead? We will send an ambulance”
    The guy replies “ I think she is dead. She is not breathing and her body is cold “
    So the 911 operator asks” Sir, where do you live? Can you please give me your full address to send an ambulance to pick up her body?”
    The guy replies “ I live in 83, Chrysanthemum Boulevard ”
    The operator says “ Sir, can you spell it for me please?”
    The guy pauses for a good ten seconds and says to the operator “ Uhmmm, how about I drag her body to the corner of Oak Street and you can pick her up from there?”

  9. That’ll fuck up Fiji’s tourist industry.

    The country’s police minister has described the epidemic as creating a “nation of zombies”.
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2024/05/19/fiji-could-become-a-nation-of-zombies-under-weight-of-meth-crisis/
    Fiji is grappling with a methamphetamine crisis that has infiltrated every part of society, from villages, schools, and the police sworn to protect them.

    “Not only is it killing the youth, it’s killing our children too. If we do not solve this drug problem in Fiji soon, our nation is going to be a nation of zombies,” he said.

    Transnational crime specialist Jose Sousa-Santos said there was enough meth there to feed the Australian market for a year, and it would have been drip-fed into New Zealand and Australia so as not to flood the market and drive the price down.

    • Why was that the lead story on One news last night? Didn’t anything happen here? What about Chloe Thickbrick getting tripped up by a patsy like Jack Tame? Can’t Fiji look after it’s own borders? Here’s a hint, search incoming and out going yachts properly. The amount of cigarettes being smuggled into here alone laughable, but then again all the customs officers up this way are morons who are more interested in safety and te reo to help them climb the ladder than doing their job properly. It’s also the main way of getting Ivermectin into the country – you can buy it over the counter in Fiji. These offshore live aboard cruisers have to pay for their lifestyle somehow and there are plenty of hiding places on yachts.

  10. We of the centre right have long bemoaned the performance of our local body politicians who we justifiably see as rubber stamping decisions made by the council executives. We should therefore be jolted upright by the actions of the Carterton District Council aimed at silencing an elected critic. From https://www.1news.co.nz/2024/05/13/councillor-writes-submission-may-lose-right-to-make-decisions/ :

    # “An elected member who made a submission to her council’s long-term plan could be excluded from making decisions on it.”

    # “Carterton councillor Grace Ayling wrote in her submission that the district council was “continuing to spend, borrow, and splurge on projects that are outside of core business” and that it needed to focus its spend on core business…….”

    # “She said the council’s proposed spend on cycle paths was “tone-deaf to the concerns and struggles of our ratepayers”, and that the events centre “continued to be a significant cost burden to ratepayers”.

    The rest of the article is well worth a read.

    Councillors who tell it like it is are as rare on the ground as rocking horse shit. She needs our help & endorsement for her stand.

    • The councils in NZ have got out of control
      I have already said that Local Govt is currently THE most important Cabinet role.
      Simeon Brown.
      It affects all people every day unlike – mostly- Education and Health.

      Your local roads footpath, dog park and its waste bins, rubbish collection, street lighting, parking, ability to build or extend a house, a garage, maintain healthy food service places, communal tree maintenance and these uprooting footpaths or puncturing water or sewer pipes; traffic lights, bus and train. sports stadia- big and small, most golf courses, parks and reserves , flood management . and more
      The role is omnipresent.

      Most councils are so poorly run now and into ideology that on current projections the average house in ao tear zooland will be paying $7000 to $9000 on house rates in 5 years time.

      This is actually a real Crisis unlike the manufactured ones.
      $140 to $180 per week for rates. Generally excluding water rates.
      Current net pension for a married couple after tax is $800 per week.
      With rates at near a quarter of this it will drive some people out of their homes.
      so then they have to rent.

      It is a real issue that has to be addressed.
      not fucking globby warming and cross dressing
      There needs to be some bold decisions followed by bold action
      and stop employing Poms from English councils for a start
      Work can be done by making centres of excellence and a bureau type operation to service councils in a geographic locality.

      Michael Bassett is a cunt and really fucked this up in 1989.
      ‘Bassett Brash Hide ‘ my azz
      Basset fucked up local govt in 1989. Bigly.
      Hide was part of fucking up Auckland in 2010 then shot through
      Brash should never have been Reserve Bank Gov for 14 years, That was appalling.

      Pardon my fucking language
      but this gives me the shits

      • In Wellington the projected rate increase over the next 10 years means someone paying $4000 now will pay $11500 in 10years. Given the way their estimates go it will more likely be well north of $15k.

      • ……”The councils in NZ have got out of control”……

        The Wairarapa councils are in the lead. Masterton is bad enough but Carterton rates are beyond belief.

        Friends of ours built down there nearly ten years ago. Nice enough retirement home close to the town amenities such as they are. A recent QV valuation of $800K.

        Their rates (including water) are about $5200/pa. Auckland would probably be cheaper.

        • Yes we pay around 3k for rates and water (we are on tank so that is just waste water). Property value about 1.1 though that isn’t really relevant as the rates are calculated by comparing to other properties in the region.

          6

          0

          • We got our insurance bill last week. It is interesting to see how rates and insurance are “calculated”. In the last valuation (2years ago) our property was valued at 1.3 mill (would not get anywhere near that if we sold) –the improvements (house and garage ) were valued at $130,000 !! and the land 1.17mill.
            The insurance had the house at 900K.
            So they set figures to suit their bottom line.

            Based on that we could burn the house, collect the insurance and ask the Council to front up to purchase the land at their valuation and we would be miles ahead /////

  11. Commissioner finds risks from COVID-19 vaccine not clearly communicated to man who died of myocarditis

    The man received his COVID-19 vaccine in 2021 and afterwards reported feeling chest discomfort and heart flutters.

    According to the report, he was apparently unaware that myocarditis (inflammation of the heart) was a potentially serious side effect of the vaccine.

    The man experienced the symptoms for 12 days before he decided to go to the hospital. But he collapsed and died before he could.

  12. Another 26,000 people may find themselves out of work before the peak in unemployment is reached, forecasters say.

    March quarter data from Stats NZ showed an increase in the unemployment rate, from 4 percent in December to 4.3 percent. It said 134,000 people were now unemployed.

    That data update did not include most of the public service cuts announced so far this year – RNZ estimates that there have been more than 4550 of these.

      cuts begin at , 15,000 of these lepers being scalped

The total disestablishment of Ministry for Pacific Peoples(156), Ministry of Arts Culture & Heritage(192), Ministry for Space(new), Ministry for Ethnic Communities (84) & Ministry for Women (28) would clear the decks of over 460 parasites for starters.

          about 200,000 city based jobs, manufacturing etc were lost
          Onehunga just emptied out, It was a sea of For Lease signs. Never really recovered from that.
          Adjacent Penrose half emptied out

          and about 100,000 rural farming/ agri /hort jobs
          It was a forest fire on jobs
          napalmed by liebour

          In about 3 years
          on a working base of about 800,000

          The total economic growth in the 6 year of liebour was 5%
          i.e. less than 1% a year.

          • What the Fourth Labour Government did was break the stranglehold the unions held over NZ. It’s hard to hold a strike when most of your membership has been made redundant & those who remain are trying to stay employed.

            With union power smashed they had a free rein to do what desperately needed done.

          • It was desperate changes.
            Prices of sheep & lamb had been suddenly undercut in the lucrative Iranian market by the subsidized EU beef & lamb pouring in.

            Those Freezing works strikes, which were always supported by government to reach settlement, so the cheque for beef, lamb, & mutton would come in to be taxed into government coffers & help the balance of payments for overseas funds.
            Over reached in 1986, as the Labour government basically left it to the ‘Market Forces’.
            In the mean time the Unions pushed on, as it was always believed the stock will still turn up to be killed.

            This time the either the farmer shot the works ewes & disposed of them him self,, feed to pigs, or some entrepreneurs bought those sheep very cheap, then killed & skinned for a nice profit,
            Some even went into fitch farming, grinding up the sheep to feed them.

            The point is the sheep & lambs evaporated, & the big works figured the return was not good, so closed & cashed up, where the land was a good price.
            The little nimble start up green-site works, with new staff signed up for shift work, fought through the Meat Boards & got underway, showing the bigger works that they have to change too.

            The farmers had already started to down the numbers of sheep, as they had started to cut back on the fertilizer to grow the ryegrass & clover.
            Plus their were pressure points, to diversify, like to Angora or cashmere goats, ostriches, & other ideas.

            The flow on effects, not only provincial, also eventually reached deep into the big cities in the late 1980’s as the 1987 share market crash also bringing changes on too.

            • The big old freezing works with their dated technology & intransigent unions had to go & go they did. Locally the Borthwicks owned Waingawa workforce went on strike in support of their brothers at Longburn & the company closed the works in 1989.

              Oringi some 110 Km north had not long been opened. The lower Wairarapa valley lamb crop was driven past the Waingawa gates & on to the new works at the gentle cost of 30 cents a head extra in carrying charges.

              The change was inevitable. NZ’s workforce was dragged kicking & screaming into the modern world.

    • The world’s most annoying, left leaning apology for a journalist had a moan about that last week. Newsrooms’s worthless scribbler, one Marc Daalder, scribbled:

      ……”Documents released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade show the previous government’s “overarching goal of pursuing rules that help prevent and mitigate future acute public health events” was replaced with a direction to “preserve domestic flexibility” including the ability to opt out of international health rules.”……

      The maggot carries on with a blub against the heartless, uncaring coalition.

        NZ certainly doesn’t require his weird political influence and take all the others with you.

    How Jeremy Clarkson Is Unironically Saving Farming

    Jeremy Clarkson’s whole career was about being a petrolhead, so a lot of people were surprised when Clarkson changed vocations, becoming a farmer on his thousand acre land in the village of Chipping Norton called “Diddly Squat Farm”. So why and how has this led to Jeremy And Kaleb Cooper becoming some of the loudest voices in the Farming Industry?…..

    • Yes please! I think willie jackson would make an ideal opposition leader for the labor party!
      It would stop him jumping the fence into the maori party, which is his natural home!
      Would the ginger whinger run away and force a by election. I think he would!
      Better than the island girl getting the nod.
      That would be interesting, and would be leader and handbag gone from labor.
      Labor could reinvent it self after a desarseteris election drubbing following ardern running away!

        • Free abortions. A thankless corporate desk job. A spent youth and no kids. Plenty of lonely sex in the city women are asking mephisto, for what did we sign up?

          • Depends on whether you consider a woman’s sole purpose in life is to be that of a breeding sow. From https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/wave-protests-iran-reflects-seething-anger-regime-treats-women-rcna48643

            “According to Iran’s interpretation of Sharia law, women cannot travel abroad without the permission of a father or husband, are banned from singing or riding bicycles, are denied custody of their children if they remarry, can seek a divorce only under limited circumstances, can be legally married at age 13 and even younger if a court approves and can only inherit an eighth of their husband’s estate. Iran ranked 143 out of 146 countries surveyed in a recent World Economic Forum report on gender pay gaps around the world.”

            With true freedom comes the possibility of success along with the opportunity to fuck up. It still beats the soul destroying oppression guaranteed to those unfortunate women born into a theocracy.

              • In a physical sense the term refers to a person with the plumbing required to turn a fertilised egg into a viable baby.

                To deny this is to deny reality. What we are facing with the current fad of pick & mix genders is a disconnect from physical & psychological traits. There have always been dominant women & effeminate men.

                It’s just that up until now religion, tradition & sociological pressure has kept things screwed down & out of sight. Society can be likened to a pressure cooker.

                When the pressure is released everything bubbles over. Then things equalise & settle down.

  15. The Chinese ambassador to New Zealand has issued a stern warning over AUKUS as NZ explores the possibility of joining Pillar Two of the US-led security pact.

    Speaking at the China Business Summit in Auckland today, Ambassador Wang Xiaolong spoke about China’s economic outlook and its trade relationship with New Zealand.

    It comes as the Government considers joining AUKUS’s non-nuclear second pillar, which would move New Zealand further away from China – our biggest trade partner.

  16. A report authored by former finance minister Bill English has found Kāinga Ora would need a $21 billion cash injection over the next four years to cover its growing losses.

    The Coalition Government commissioned the former National Party minister, and two others, to review the Crown housing agency after becoming concerned about its operating losses.

    English’s report was released on Monday after Cabinet approved four of its recommendations.

    Housing Minister Chris Bishop said it had two broad findings. Firstly, that it was financially underperforming and non-viable without increased Government support.

    And secondly, that the wider social housing system was not delivering enough results and needed to be opened up to more providers.

  17. A father walks into a restaurant with his young son.

    He gives the young boy a coin to play with to keep him occupied.

    Suddenly, the boy starts choking, going blue in the face.

    The father realizes the boy has swallowed the coin and starts slapping him on the back. but the boy keeps choking. Looking at his son, the father is panicking, shouting for help.

    A well-dressed, attractive, and serious looking woman in a blue business suit is sitting at the coffee bar reading a newspaper and sipping a cup of coffee. At the sound of the commotion, she looks up, puts her coffee cup down, neatly folds the newspaper and places it on the counter, gets up from her seat and makes her way, unhurried, across the restaurant.

    Reaching the boy, the woman carefully drops his pants; takes hold of the boy’s’ testicles and starts to squeeze and twist, gently at first and then ever so firmly. After a few seconds, the boy convulses violently and coughs up the coin, which the woman deftly catches in her free hand.

    Releasing the boy’s testicles, the woman hands the coin to the father and walks back to her seat at the coffee bar without saying a word.

    As soon as he is sure that his son has suffered no ill effects, the father rushes over to the woman and starts thanking her saying, “I’ve never seen anybody do anything like that before, it was fantastic. Are you a doctor? “

    “No” the woman replies. “I’m with the Taxation Department.”

    • Haven’t they shot themselves in the foot over this? They are saying the information on possible heart issues was out there and accepted and the Pharmacist should have told Rory. But the Podium of Truth was denying any serious side effects and it was all “safe and effective”. So the ruling is saying Ardern , Bloomfield and co. were full of BS as some of us have been saying all along.
