  1. Landlords beware, Jodie Reeves will be on the lookout for a new rental.

    Tenant refuses to pay rent after partner ‘run over’ by landlord
    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/119330421/tenant-refuses-to-pay-rent-after-partner-run-over-by-landlord

    About three hours after Robinson’s death Reeves sent a series of texts to Phal, one of which read: “U will not be getting ur rent now I got to put Anthony at rest because of u.” (sic)

    Phal later text Reeves, demanding she leave house by the day ordered by the court and pay the weekly $400 rent.

    “Nah no rent u took his life u not getting s…,” she replied

      • Me too, just not all at once. I like how he thanks everyone. I’ve never heard a president or a politician do that, they normally talk about only themselves and how it affected them. Trump has a great team working for him. His team clearly respect the man and what he has achieved. Trump has gained a lot of support from many skeptics who after the election saw how he worked and improved the economy and society.

      Act leader David Seymour has started to set out some of his bottom lines as a condition for going into Government after the election, including a repeal of any hate speech laws and reversing some of the firearms reforms in the aftermath of the Christchurch massacre.

      “A Government dependent on Act will never pass laws that restrict your speech,” he said in a state of the nation speech in Auckland yesterday.

      “We will expect National to join with us in repealing any hate speech laws introduced in the dying days of this Government.”

      He said the gun laws in response to the shootings last year in which 51 people were killed was “collective punishment for the worst crime in our nation’s history on a group of people who’d done nothing wrong”.

      • None of what Seymour says above will not bother Nats , they are already not happy with the second tranche of gun laws , that appears to be all David is saying above , people forget that Bridges has said he will can the UN migration pact , its time people got behind Bridges , he also yesterday said lets get rid of the treaty and the racist seats

    • He is right yet I will note that not all the gestures were good. Went to a supermarket yesterday; did not have enough bags, Did I wish to buy a bag? Had to buy a bag to get the purchases to the car and noted that both options, fabric or paper, were ready barcoded so I could pay for my choice.

      Given we were not the cause of global contamination by plastic bags; that was a very irritating and very empty gesture. Supermarket industry is probably still laughing.

      Great speech Mr Seymour. Very keen on your proposals to redress the wrongs of the current government in relation to the Arms Act. A welcome voice for a positive future.

      Thanks

  2. If they can reason, then they can reason out of the copyright “Greta Thunberg” money making cult.

    …… reports on cult-like control, censorship, hostility and left-wing infiltration. …..
    …. Constantly watched …..
    …… “In my view, it has a sort of cult character because you have to have that opinion. Otherwise, you’ll be insulted out, if you will.”
    She then adds:
    “They make demands without even thinking about solutions and thinking about the consequences of immediately exiting coal power.”
    She adds: “High taxes aren’t going to buy the CO2 out of the air.” …..

    The link to 42 minute video of the interview is all in German & no subtitles.

    ‘By Any Means Necessary?’ meeting Simon Bramwell, the cofounder of Extinction Rebellion, advocated for humanity to return to a “wild” and “feral” state, saying that it is the duty of activist groups like XR is to “sabotage” civilization, in order to bring about his Paleolithic utopian vision. ……… “part of our duty in my opinion that we’ve also got to not only take down civilization but shepherd ourselves and incoming generations back into a state of wilding as it were, into like a feral consciousness that is also one of the biggest tasks remaining to us.” ….

    The video link is 1 hour 22 minutes , in spoken English

    Those 2 brief articles seem to be a report about an ‘infectional’ problem in “bedlam” that has escaped.
    A cult of making stress, so that reasoning, thinking can not occur,
    A form of cultism brainwashing to make, and then keep control over who ever the young adherents, to be used as “shock troops” for political purposes.

    • So who will the education system get in to speak to children about Climate Change?

      Gusen spoke to these children—who are all in Grade 6—about how to engage in climate activism, why Alberta needs a Green New Deal, and also taught the children about Swedish activist Greta Thunberg.

      Children were so concerned about the state of the planet after Gusen’s talk that one grade 6 student wrote him a letter, saying, “Thank you for telling me about climate change, I feel earth’s pain.”
      https://www.thepostmillennial.com/city-of-edmonton-had-children-listen-to-extinction-rebellion-activist-on-climate-change/

      To create fear, pressure, stress, with the one way flow of information with misdirection to gain a cultism control by ‘feelz’ through the schooling systems.

      • Guess Simon Bramwell has a cell phone and laptop to keep in touch with his followers. Don’t think they had technology during the Paleolithic era. What a fraud! Extinction Rebellion are NUTS!! 👿 😳

        “The Paleolithic or Palaeolithic or Palæolithic, also called the Old Stone Age, is a period in human prehistory distinguished by the original development of stone tools that covers c. 99% of the time period of human technological prehistory. It extends from the earliest known use of stone tools by hominins c. 3.3 million years ago, to the end of the Pleistocene c. 11,650 cal BP. The Paleolithic Age in Europe preceded the Mesolithic Age, although the date of the transition varies geographically by several thousand years. During the Paleolithic Age, hominins grouped together in small societies such as bands and subsisted by gathering plants, fishing, and hunting or scavenging wild animals. The Paleolithic Age is characterized by the use of knapped stone tools, although at the time humans also used wood and bone tools.” Wikipedia

  3. Who is Heather McCarron Anthony Dr Edward’s in this load of drivel from Three News, they both must be in cuckoo land if they really believe Maori and respect that what the PM Jacinda Ardern promised last year when saying hold to account if I haven’t delivered on my promise from last years Waitangi day.

    • Jeremy Wells is s brainless twat and his opinion us hardly worth printing anyway. The truth of the matter is that the ‘don’t care’ segment of society who simply ‘go to the beach’ mentally don’t matter. What matters is the growing proportion of people who are absolutely sick and tired of the whining, moaning and sheer resentment that the Maoris vomit at our country every Waitangi Day. That and the grovelling abject appeasement shown by our leading politicians.

  4. 12 year olds are now questing the inaction of the police when dealing with gangs: 12 year-old raises gang concerns while Nash defends police actions

    Nash basically explains that his police force are ineffective:
    “In some circumstances, however, police make the judgement that it is in the best interests of public safety, and their own, not to charge someone there-and-then, but rather take down the details of the offending vehicle and follow up afterwards.”

    • The cops in n NZ are utterly useless in the cause for Good.
      The perfect profile of a school bully.
      They will only pick on someone who won’t push back.
      Or they send a dozen armed cops to go and ‘talk to’ a family man about his old rabbit gun.

      This is why gangs are thriving.
      Add in to that mix the fact that Labour policy is people should not be in prison (unless you have bad thoughts, are a farmer, believe in actual free speech for all, have not been EDUcated about Clammy change; want to drive petrol cars et al) and the message is out there from Labour:-
      Scumbags, thugs, gangsters, and (traditional ) law breakers are OK by them.

      A few days after Xmas I drove south from Auckland
      The traffic was heavy.
      It took 3 hours to go 98 km.
      The Akl southern motorway was slow as per usual and the perpetual road works south of Manurewa have been stopping flow for years. No hospital built in 10 days crap here. No sir!
      There was a bit of flow south of the Bombay hills.
      Then at Ohinewai there was a large electronic sign saying ‘slow to Taupiri’
      It took 1 hour to go about 15 km .
      All up by the time I was on 1B to head south east, 3 hours had elapsed.

      When I got to Taupiri the cause was clear.
      There were a bunch of Maori milling around on State goat track No 1 at the base of the Maori grave yard.
      No adult (pig) supervision. As I was crawling along, about 5 cars ahead one maori threw a beer can to his mate across the Goat-track 1 .
      They had taken over the main road and killed traffic flow.
      We see this with protests in Wellington last year with XR where the useless piggies let the thugs and crims take over.
      In this case they did nothing but ‘kindly’ put up a sign saying ‘it is slow’. Duh.

      A parallel to Imumatao.
      Maori break the law and the cops give them a free pass.
      The Maori gangs are having a good run.
      The old Labour PM, Norm Kirk, took the opposite approach.

      98 Km in 3 hours.
      No thanks to thug enabling cops.

      The reality of 2020 is that cops enable criminals and penalise what -in previous years- were the honest citizens.
      Bear this in mind and don’t be fooled – the policeman is NOT your friend.
      Most here are aware of what happened in Rotherham. It is here in NZ now.
      Be afraid.
      Hence the desire to disarm you.
      The NZ poo lice gave a gun licence to Brenton Tarrant when there is no way he should have qualified for one.
      What this a deliberate act and part of a plan?
      Facts are being carefully suppressed and the enablers of Tarrant come down hard on those who question them.

  5. I see the BFD is taking jumping the shark to new extremes. They are comparing Bridges refusing to deal with Winston to Jacinda’s captains call on banning oil exploration. According to their “source” Simon made the decision on his own which I find incredibly hard to believe. Do whale and SB eat lemons and take bitterness pills every morning? Even the die hards over that way are starting to bite back and walk away. Maybe they should find a new lawyer from a different party who has better friends.

      • I would think that is the most likely.
        They used Winston’s mate/lawyer Brain Henry for defence in many court cases.
        Chances are the fair market value of that legal bill is over $500k.
        The whale family and Winston have the common bond of hating Notional.

        • I wasn’t banned but left as it all got too much for me the slagging off of the National Party. I wrote and told them exactly why I was leaving so they didn’t think I had just dropped off the radar. Interesting that they use the same lawyer as Winestone. I did not realise that.

    • It does lead me to wonder if BFD is beholden to NZ First, and NZ First’s shared legal expertise, like has been hinted.
      Slater is bankrupt and the BFD is perhaps on shakey ground when it seems likely Slater is still contributing and monetising BFD.
      So having a lawyer on board is prudent.
      But the legal problems of WOBH and BFD aside, it is the content and the quality of opinion which matters.
      Bemoaning Bridges for ruling out NZ First is poor insight/opinion. I don’t see any indication of support for NZ first from right-of-centre people. National cutting them off at the knees is the correct thing to do IMO.
      Yes, there is a risk there around ruling NZF out. It is a hope that a % shifts back to National. A reasonable assumption.
      Yes, NZF did sink capital gains tax, and might do the right thing on gun legislation this time round, or Ihumatao.
      But the fact is – NZF gave the government to Labour and the Greens for the most part. And Winston seems to have no interest in working with National, or at least conducting himself with grace.
      So articles from Slater/BFD don’t treat this ruling out as a risk or weigh up the merits. They bash Simon, as the last act of a leader about to be deposed. This is deranged.

      This is when a Blog becomes like the MSM in its weaknesses i.e. – it isn’t informing or laying out the aspects for readers to decide themselves. It reads as thinly veiled activism.

      BFD should consider the only debate I saw in other political discussions was around WHEN to rule out NZ First. So why act so shocked?
      BFD will become a voice in the wilderness at this rate.

        • Pascal it makes me laugh about most on this site going on about free speech yet when others complain just like like they are on here and the bfd about Simon Bridges it’s deemed as fair game , Simon is allow to voice his opinion and free speech is also allowed by people that are employed by Parliamentary Service and if Tevor Mallard and the Goverment have let them down they have right as Dave Mann and yourself to free speech. Just saying if you had a daughter and she had been treated badly by her employer are you telling me that you would think it was right just because Parliamentary Service and Trevor Mallard didn’t do there job right that your daughter deserves to be call ed a wous.

          • happy, I am raising my daughter to understand that sticks and stones can break her bones, but that words should never hurt her. And that if some grease ball like JLR said mean things to her, she should feel comfortable to tell him to get fucked. And smart and skilled enough that another job should not be a worry for her.

            This whole “I’m being bullied” nonsense – we need to be teaching our children to stand up for themselves.

            That is my point. Not sure where the rest of verbiage came from.

          • In fact, reading that article, I disagree even more with you. JLR is a total dickhead, no doubt. But that lady should have been raised in a society where standing up for yourself is not seen as thought crime and where bullies are not tolerated. Not reported – bullies are not tolerated. It is not a fight for a manger or a superior (necessarily), but one for everybody. And it starts with the people being bullied – they need to know their worth and be able to stand up for themselves. That’s what I want.

  6. The doctor who blew the whistle on a new virus emerging in Wuhan appears to have died from coronavirus.
    In December, he warned medical colleagues to take precautions about incoming patients, and was intimidated by police as a result.
    Anger and grief in Chinese social media comes in the wake of his death being announced, and now the newspapers have taken down the story about the death.
    I suspect this is due to concerns over social unrest – or perhaps he is only effectively dead and being kept alive by machine.

    Newspapers in China like the People’s Daily are unlikely to have put out a death notice (since scrubbed) by mistake.
    WHO had even issued condolences.
    Seems that the young and the fit, and those with excellent hospital care, are not certain to avoid a bad result from this virus.

    Coronavirus kills Chinese whistleblower doctor
    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-51403795

    While the death rate may still be low as a %, the # infected seems too low. Chinese citizens have said the hospitals are stretched, so that relatives presenting symptoms have been turned away from testing since there isnt the resource.
    Others have said that relatives dying from fever and respiratory illness have ‘pneumonia’ added to the death certificate.

    Chinese don’t like to lose face in front of others – and add into this the secrecy of a totalitarian regime. Hard to assert what the true picture is.
    Abandoned streets, police padlocking the doors of homes with people inside after checking they have rice, and corpses filmed being removed from apartment blocks (suppose to be cremated promptly) means that some footage on cell phones speaks in a different way than any official numbers can.

    • Zero Hedge reports that the Chinese conglomerate Ten Cent “Mistakenly” said Infections of Corona Virus 150,000+ Suspected cases 70,000+ and fatality rate of 15%, subsequently all figures “Corrected” to official ones. There may be no really accurate figure but reports from Wuhan that Crematoriums are burning 100 bodies a day indicates the scale is greater that officially reported and quarantining 15/18 cities containing 50+ Million does suggest that this virus is a serious threat. I feel sorry for China whatever the cause as the human cost is considerable but if there is culpability then post event accountability of all involved is a requirement. It seems that the virus causes Pneumonia which is what is killing those infected lets hope our “Government” with time to plan ensures adequate supplies and systems are in place to minimise any effects on NZ – I have marginally more faith in our minister of health david clarke (who is probably praying to whatever god will listen) to do the appropriate thing then his pal Phail of Kiwibuild infamy.

  7. I see on KB, David Farrar has a post about Romney being the only honest Republican !!

    I used to think David did these poss just to stir up a bit of discussion, I now realise he has lost the plot when it comes to President Trump.
    He agrees with Romney saying ” the President is guilty of an appalling abuse of the public trust.” This agreement from a pollster when President Trump’s popularity is increasing in the polls —the irony is screaming from the roof tops.

He does seem to have a bit of an obsession with Trump but doesn’t seem to mind that his beloved National Party aligns themselves further and further with the murderous CCP and sells our parliamentary sovereignty and national security down the river.

      • He and others who still have TDS obviously have not watched the coverage, or have they been watching CNN?!! Hubby and I have followed the impeachment process closely from last year and have come to know President Trump’s legal team and many amazingly clever Republican members of the Senate such as Kevin McCarthy, Jim Jordan, Devan Nunus, Matt Gaetz, etc who have all been investigating and working behind the scenes to uncover the corruption and TDS that was driving the Dems impeachment of President Trump. It has been fascinating watching the blind belief of those who have heard the evidence that there was no crime but still believe Trump is guilty! They are truly suffering from such hatred for the elected president of the USA that they have become mentally deranged.
        It amazes me that those who claim they are politically aware, infact work with our political parties are totally ignorant of the truth. Don Brash and DPF being two examples. They really must be getting their coverage of “fake news” from watching CNN or MSNBC, CBS or ABC. Try Fox news to hear the REAL news on the greatest president of our time.

          I have followed the US situation since Trump became the nominee and similarly followed the UK Brexit political scene since the referendum was held –both started because I did not know much about them and I wanted to learn more. Both have led me to understand more about the power of the “swamp” and the lobbyists in each case.
          My interest in NZ politics has waned during this time because of how woke and how attached they have become to “virtual signalling” that it started to drive me “up the wall”, so much I gave up to a large extent.

    • Didn’t one of our regulars win a Wikipedia editing battle with David Farrar over his “liberal” title when he should have been using a “woke” one instead?

    • My theory is that Farrar has/had contacts in the Democrat Party… before the Trump election he filled all the US posts up with Pro-Hillary material…
      As I don’t have a great interest in US politics, I didn’t pay much attention to his posts… until Trump won and then realised Farrar hadn’t a clue about anything in the USA apart from the sludge he was being fed from an incredibly narrow view-point.

      He also seems to have no great insights into UK or Australian politics.

      I’m usually more interested in the insights of KBs commenters on NZ politics than those of DPF.

    Public media shake-up: Government could merge RNZ, TVNZ into super-sized broadcaster
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/02/broadcasting-minister-kris-faafoi-announces-plan-to-merge-rnz-tvnz.html

    “It’s well known that New Zealand’s media sector, both public and private, is facing unprecedented challenges with competition from the likes of Google and Facebook, declining revenue shares, and changes in when and how audiences access their information and entertainment.

    “That presents risks for the future viability of New Zealand’s public broadcasting operators, RNZ and TVNZ, and the Government needs to address those risks,” Faafoi said.

    • They can merge the two, but this doesn’t mean efficiencies or revenue/productivity automatically.
      I have concerns over the job RNZ is doing in particular {being horribly woke and soft on the government) but the merits of a merger needs to be balanced against risks of a merger….

      The Taxpayer union recently released info on the merger of rural and urban fire services.
      $47m in savings actually ended up as $338m in increased costs:

      “Key findings:
      • More than three-quarters of the cost increase between 2017/18 and 2018/19 was sucked up by back-office bureaucracy.”

    • Yes Nationals reputation was damaged. Many voters weren’t happy about that. It seemed sensible to me, Maori gained by it, perhaps the Maori party should have pushed that narrative. Are Simon and Paula not Maori enough?

      I for one am sorry that their ethnicity actually is an issue, It should be a meritocracy and that is what National are.

    Auckland Airport launches immediate review into runway closures as pressure mounts
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/travel/2020/02/auckland-airport-launches-immediate-review-into-runway-closures-as-pressure-mounts.html

    It comes as an international pilot group with over 100,000 members sent out a bulletin warning about the airport’s runway issues, claiming parts of the runway are deteriorating faster than can be kept up with by those responsible for maintenance.

    “As these runway closures are not planned and are unable to be forecast, it is suggested that pilots should always carry a technical alternate for Auckland. Alternatively, consider carrying a minimum of 20 minutes extra holding fuel for arrival at Auckland.”

  11. KiwiBuild stock take: Govt currently $26 million out of pocket buying and selling KiwiBuild houses; 406 houses sold, 728 under construction; Mixed response from developers to reset

    There are $26 million of unsold KiwiBuild houses on the Government’s books, according to figures provided to interest.co.nz by Kāinga Ora.

    The Crown has spent $59 million buying 90 KiwiBuild houses it contracted to be built on the basis it would buy them upfront, and 47 houses it had to buy because they weren’t selling. It has received $33 million for on-selling 72 of these houses.

    So the Crown is currently $26 million out of pocket. This will change as houses are bought and sold.

    The Government had, from the launch of KiwiBuild, allocated $2 billion towards the programme, with the idea that money spent would be recycled as houses sold and the proceeds were reinvested.

  13. Statement from the President
    NATIONAL SECURITY & DEFENSE

    Issued on: February 6, 2020

    At the direction of President Donald J. Trump, the United States conducted a counterterrorism operation in Yemen that successfully eliminated Qasim al-Rimi, a founder and the leader of al-Qa’ida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and a deputy to al-Qa’ida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri. Rimi joined al-Qa’ida in the 1990s, working in Afghanistan for Osama bin Laden. Under Rimi, AQAP committed unconscionable violence against civilians in Yemen and sought to conduct and inspire numerous attacks against the United States and our forces. His death further degrades AQAP and the global al-Qa’ida movement, and it brings us closer to eliminating the threats these groups pose to our national security. The United States, our interests, and our allies are safer as a result of his death. We will continue to protect the American people by tracking down and eliminating terrorists who seek to do us harm.

      • FYI.
        Origins?

        This story was published on July 14, 2019.
        Chinese researcher escorted from infectious disease lab amid RCMP investigation
        Dr. Xiangguo Qiu, her husband Keding Cheng and an unknown number of her students from China were removed from Canada’s only level-4 lab on July 5, CBC News has learned.
        A Level 4 virology facility is a lab equipped to work with the most serious and deadly human and animal diseases. That makes the Arlington Street lab one of only a handful in North America capable of handling pathogens requiring the highest level of containment, such as Ebola.
        https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manitoba/chinese-researcher-escorted-from-infectious-disease-lab-amid-rcmp-investigation-1.5211567

        And then this:

        “While I was there [Qiu] was always highly regarded as a scientist,” says Plummer, adding that he was “shocked and puzzled” when he heard she was being investigated. “She maintained connections with China, but as far as I knew she was a regular Canadian scientist.”
        Cheng, Qiu’s husband, also worked as a biologist at NML. And both researchers held adjunct faculty positions at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg. It says it has terminated their positions and reassigned their students as a result of the investigation.

        https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2019/07/mystery-surrounds-ouster-chinese-researchers-canadian-laboratory

        And lo and behold this from 2 days ago:

        Renowned Canadian scientist Frank Plummer dies in Kenya, where he led HIV breakthroughs
        “He helped to identify a lot of the key factors that are involved in HIV transmission in the early days,” said Keith Fowke, a professor in the medical microbiology and infectious diseases department at the University of Manitoba.
        “He was admired and regarded highly by academics and researchers around the world, and his legacy of seeking to develop an HIV vaccine remains one of the landmarks of infectious disease prevention,” Barnard said.

Fighting talk from Winston Is what some say but I would call bull shit and Winston trying to lie to the voter like he has for many years, he has been saying for two years Simon Bridges will be replaced as the National Party Leader and each time he has had to eat humbe pie. Well this time is that he will be replaced as Leader because he wouldn’t do a deal with Winston Peters or NZ First, well there is every chance if he is not the Prime Mister like many others he will be replaced not because of Winston Peter’s.

      Also, that article is introducing us to potential catastrophe’s extremely nonchalantly.

    Pandemic, Lies and Videos

    February 6, 2020

    Will we wonder, what were we thinking? and marvel anew at the madness of crowds?

    When we look back on this moment from the vantage of history, what will we think? Will we think how obvious it was that the coronavirus deaths in China were in the tens of thousands rather than the hundreds claimed by authorities?

    Will we think how obvious it was that the virus would spread around the globe, wreaking havoc on the global economy and social order, even as the authorities claimed only a handful of cases had arisen outside China?

    Will we be amazed at the delusional confidence that the U.S. economy would be untouched by the virus as stock markets quickly soared to new all-time highs while the world’s largest economy ground to a halt in a desperate attempt to close the barn door after the horses had already escaped?

    Will we look back at the patently false data being promoted by authorities and wonder why the majority accepted it all as credible?

    Will we re-examine all the smartphone videos posted on the web by average people and wonder why all the lies were given more credibility than actual videos?

    Will we recall how content that didn’t parrot the approved narrative that everything was under control and the global impact would be near-zero was suppressed, banned, de-platformed or marginalized? Will we wonder at the complacency of all those who accepted this orchestrated suppression with such obedient passivity?

    Will we look back at the claim that only twelve people in the entire U.S. had the virus, despite all the direct flights from Wuhan and the tens of thousands of people who’d traveled from China to the U.S. in January, and marvel at our credulity?

    Will we look back at the wreckage left in the wake of the coordinated campaign to suppress the facts and lay the responsibility for all the carnage on the authorities who devoted more energy to hiding the realities of the pandemic than to preparing us for the impact?

    Will we ponder the incredible grip of mass delusion on the human mind when we recall the confidence that the U.S. economy was invulnerable to the virus and the implosion of China, and the blithe quasi-religious faith that central banks would never let global stock markets decline even 2%?

    Will we wonder how the mainstream could watch the Chinese economy shutting down and still remain absolutely confident that the global economy would be untouched as the spot of bother was sure to evaporate in a week or two and all would be restored to pre-virus euphoria?

    Will we wonder what were we thinking? and marvel anew at the madness of crowds? Will we wonder why we embraced the delusion so readily, and relive the moment when the gate to reality creaked open? Will we relive our realization that we’d embraced an absurd fantasy floating on a tissue of lies, or will we bury that painful moment of truth?
