          Be prepared to see a multitude of photo shots of the family preparing loaves & fishes for school kids and the elderly as the election draws closer.

      • You are making it up.

        You are repeating the lies of liars.
        That is what repeaters do.
        If repeated often enough, soft-in-the-head people then believe it is fact.
        It is how propaganda works.

        There is NO picture. Because it is unlikely it ever happened.
        It is probably made up by a keyboard jockey in Mt Roskill and the media filth have reported it as FACT as they are prone to do.

        Why would you promote lies?

    • No, Noah only had instructions to save animals.
      The rest of Earth’s life forms, bacteria, Fungi, Plants, seaweeds etc were subject to the flood…… but somehow enough plants managed to withstand being completely drowned for well over 190 days….and were in a state of young leafy growth when Noah sent out a dove to check on the state of things (the dove plucked a leafy olive branch).

      It’s a miracle, but there you go….

      • Hello Maggy.
        I have often wondered if this flood that Noah was having to build his Ark for to get all the animals on board could have been the first recorded instance of Global Warming. If all the ice melted at the Poles and on all the mountains that could have been enough water to have flooded the Earth. As I recall from my bible studies I think that God was not happy with us humans as there was so much sinfulness going on. I think it might be the same thing again now. Far too much sinfulness in the world. There has also been reports that locusts are swarming in Kenya and Ethiopia.

  1. Team, coming up on the 1st of March is Paws for Justice. It is an annual ride in Auckland; this year heading out from Smales Business Park to Parakai Hot Springs. There’s live bands, food and all sorts of glorious things at the end. And best of all, there’s usually more than a 1000 motorcycles attending. There are also some fabulous prizes, including a brand new Harley Davidson.

    More information is here: https://pawjustice.myshopify.com/pages/the-event

    As far as group rides go, this one attracts a fair amount of squids who think these group rides are about who gets there first – so if you’re intending to ride along for the first time, careful riding is needed here. Your own pace, left/right alternates in the lane, etc. But if you’re just keen to hear what a thousand+ motorcycles starting up sounds like, come along and video us!

    • From Pascal’s link:

      ……”By joining the ride, you are giving to our furry friends a voice, and helping us raise much-needed funds to support the Paw Justice Foodbank and our rehoming and adoption arm”……

      Take your life jacket. If the day got any wetter you could drown in maudlin sentimentality! 🙂

  2. Can anyone tell me why we allow people in NZ to have children when the parents contribute 25% of the cost to raise them the taxpayer pays the rest.
    We are slowly getting to the stage now of the state looking after them full time as parents can’t even make rules to keep them off the street at night.
    Then end result of what’s happening with this Government wanting to be kind and fell good about what they are doing is we won’t have enough money for Hospitals, Education, Transport infrastructure or employment because it will be spent on keeping people out of jail and free housing because many more won’t be able to afford as there won’t be jobs, leaving us on the beginning of the slippery slope now and can look forward to NZ joining Venezuela and becoming the next shithole.

    • Quoted:

      Government should support New Zealanders in genuine hardship who cannot otherwise support themselves. It should play a limited, but important, role in protecting the vulnerable.

      While the intention of alleviating hardship is noble, hundreds of thousands of New Zealanders are now dependent on welfare. This prevents them from living independent, productive lives. It is unacceptable that over 300,000 – or 1 in 9 – working-age adults receive a main benefit.

      The only long-term solution to reducing hardship is to promote policies which increase economic growth, creating new jobs and higher wages.

      ACT will:
      Introduce a lifetime limit of five years on Sole Parent Support and a lifetime limit of three years on Jobseeker Support, with ‘cashless welfare’ being applied when those limits are reached. ACT would also extend cashless welfare to any parent who has additional children while receiving a benefit. This means a person’s benefit will be placed on a debit card which can only be used for specific purposes – for example, rent, power and groceries.

      The three key things for me are:

      * time limited benefits; you’re not there for life
      * cashless benefits; while it has an element of government control it is a reasonable brake
      * education and economic growth to work out of inter-generational welfare

      • ……”cashless benefits; while it has an element of government control it is a reasonable brake”……

        There’s no compulsion. If the recipients want to live like the employed do then they can get off the couch & join them at the workface.

      • And reduced immigration of those whose predecessors have demonstrated an inability to integrate and become productively useful to NZ. A generous resettlement package to those who wish to leave having found NZ to be unsuitable for them will help. Most importantly the next National/ACT Govt must put the same effort into reducing wasteful expenditure, over regulation and unnecessary interference in peoples lives as this coalition of clowns has in increasing taxes, regulations and what we should think.

  3. And, as your event coordinator for the day – this weekend Stephen Berry is hosting an ACT meet and greet at the Flying Moa. I live about a 5 minute walk away, so will probably wander over wearing a bit of ACT gear. Hopefully a few of you in Auckland comes along to create some noise for ACT.

  4. It’s the discrimination of feeding some of the decile one school children that gets to me. The other day I saw a photo of what you could buy for the same money as opposed to a packet of cigarettes. Useless parents don’t have to do a thing for their children now its government supplied. That is part of bringing up children they cost and it’s an on going cost for years and years. The way we are going New Zealand will become a Venezuelan shit hole faster than the speed of light. The health money is all going on teaching white middle aged woke women and men to speak Te Reo in work time. When you work out the attendees hourly salaries, the cost of the teacher( which I can only imagine how much that will be) and the rooms they use, I think a few operations could be funded for the costs. And all this speaking of the native language.. will that cure diabetes, stop the mental health etc etc.

    • Our decile 9 school has been quick to rattle the begging bowl and assure us that our $150 donation is ONLY $37.50 per term. A bargain they say considering what we get ( – that we already paid for.)
      Then they rummage in my pocket for another $30 to take the whole school to a make-believe urban marae for an overnight stay.
      They can swing for the $30 and the $150.
      I also refused the stationery pack that was full of glue sticks and whiteboard markers so the school can sneak their overheads out of my pocket as well. I sent last years exercise books instead since they were barely used. (and it would be bad for the environment to throw them out and buy new ones.//)
      Now I just need to pay the compulsory Tech Fee $50 and the On-line maths resources fee $26.00
      Why is Science lumped into the Tech subjects and given the same time allocation as Performing Arts?
      Do I replace the $12.50 headphones that got smashed in the bottom of the schoolbag last year? They were never used, but its compulsory to have them.
      It isn’t easy to tell this bunch of pirates to ** off, without putting the kid in a shitty position, but they have all the nerve of a bad tooth and they obviously need someone to get the crayons out and let them know.

  5. Protesting as the Dutch government considers a “Farm Buy Back” while making emissions illegal.

    debate in parliament on how to rein in emissions of the pollutant nitrogen oxide. Farmers believe they are being disproportionately targeted by lawmakers, saying that aviation, construction and other industries also are major polluters. ……

    “Take the time to give the sector a chance to use far more effective ways to reduce emissions of nitrogen oxide, which we’ve already been doing for years,” said Ype Reinsma, a farmer from the northern province of Friesland.
    “Why is everything aimed at the farmers?” ……
    .
    Among measures being considered by the government are a multi-million euro fund to buy out farmers who voluntarily want to close their farms and moves to encourage modernization of farms.

  6. A good article on just how ‘liberal’ leftist treat democracy.
    The author is an activist, in the sense that the judiciary system of Austria and the EU put her through the mill, and she stood as firm as one could in those circumstances, plus learnt from those experiences.

    ~ “Germany is witnessing the gradual erosion of democracy and the rule of law, a process that began in 2015 [during the migrant crisis] and which has become even more visible since and has ended in putsch against democracy.” — Vera Lengsfeld, political analyst, February 7, 2020.

    ~ “The vote is unforgivable and must be reversed.” — German Chancellor Angela Merkel, regarding a duly elected German state premier.

    ~ “Why bother exercising the right to vote when the ‘wrong’ choice can be annulled by the media and the chancellor through propaganda and veto?… Do we stand for democracy or for elections until the results suit the ruler?” — Dushan Wegner, political commentator, February 7, 2020.

    ~ Josef Hueber explains in a commentary how in a pseudo-democracy, elections mean voting until the result is “correct”…

    ~ We are presently faced with yet more politically-based show trials: of the parliamentarian Geert Wilders in The Netherlands and of Matteo Salvini in Italy. It is up to the population and voters to decide whether liberal democracy is worth fighting for.

    The growing intolerance of many “left-wing” groups is apparent in the uproar of the democratic election of the state premier of the German state of Thuringia
    as well as in the performance of the Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, publicly ripping up US President Donald J. Trump’s State of the Union address. It was an official document that belongs not to her but to the public, and of which she was merely its custodian.

    https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/15600/intolerant-left-liberal-democracy

    Media attacks that support philosophical changes but on leftist terms, pushing for voter changes to better allow discrepancies, to use democracy, not as a balance, but to get to the levers of controlling power.

      • Wow Pascal, that is certainly interesting. Most people I know earn no where near the so called mid level, And they have meaningful jobs also, . Who are these people who make up these figures? Such liars. If that be the case how are the rest of society supposed to live. National promised a tax cut of $1,000 pa which was scrapped once the col came in to power. So they give the $20 a week help with power costs for a few months and liebor supporters think that’s great cause they can’t work out that is is less than they were offered by National.

  7. NZ has its own form of this as arranged under Treaty principles.
    So the police can strum “10 guitars” feed on the coffee & doughnuts, where ever they are.

    Chairman of the Police Federation, which represents the concerns of rank-and-file officers, John Apter said that members across the country had expressed concern that if they attempted to arrest the protesters that they would be sued and face financial penalties.

  9. And so new laws, but everything seems to become blurred. “hate crimes” “hate speech” “terrorism” seems to be rolled altogether, as glitter is sprinkled on these supposed superior laws of control, so the judiciary can apply increased fines, penalties, seizures, gaol etc.. as ‘lawfare’ is used for controlling citizens.

    Billionaire presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg said he will charge Americans with ‘domestic terrorism’ for ‘hate crimes’ if elected and bashed ‘nativists’ in America .

      • Sadly a call to all to recognize the allah of islamic ideology.

        Adhan” in Arabic and means “information, enlightenment”. The prayer call came about for two main reasons: The prayer call should remind people when it was time to pray and the call to proclaim Islam over a city, ……
        ….. quotes from “Umdat Al-Ahkam”, one of the most important books of Islamic law:….
        …. “Adhan is a very important ritual in the practice of religion of Islam, you can liken it to the Muslim flag and the exclamation shows that the people of the city are Muslims. It is also important for the proclamation of the word of Allah and thus manifest the religion of Allah (Islam) ”.

        “The prayer call begins with” takbir “by proclaiming” Allaho akbar “to show that Allah is the greatest and that everything and everyone, except Allah in Islam, should bow. The Islamic testimony is the second sentence of the prayer (There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is His Messenger). This confirms Islam and proclaims it (Islam) across the country.

          They are big talkers and poor performers.

          I was in the USA during 2000 and 2001. They were regarded as a joke esp with their recent failures over the Oklahoma bombing and Waco.
          It was only after Sept 11 that the piss taking was made to stop.
          That was very convenient!
          The same happened with the Bush simpleton. He was parodied mercilessly until Sept 11 then it stopped. Also convenient.

          At the time of Al Capone there was a specific Govt organisation to enforce the Prohibition Act. They were the ones pursuing him.

          The FBI was a piddly little agency at the time run by a corrupt little queer who later went on to blackmail successive Presidents and mix with the organised crime, where he was feted. Just as the queer Hoover had illegal files on most USA political and business players the underworld had the goods on him. He left them alone.
          The FBI should have been shut down when that Hoover critter become worm food- the most useful thing he ever did.

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/02/national-won-t-scrap-planned-minimum-wage-hikes-collins.html

    The Labour-NZ First coalition agreement signed in 2017 said the minimum wage would reach $20 an hour by 2021. It was then $15.75, is presently $17.70 and will go up to $18.90 in April.

    Asked on The AM Show on Friday if National really would “get rid of the minimum wage increases that are coming”, Collins said no.

    “But I think it is important that we understand that it’s getting harder and harder for small businesses in particular to survive. I think we need to be very, very careful.”

    The man convicted of murdering British backpacker Grace Millane has been sentenced to life imprisonment with a minimum non-parole period of 17 years in the Auckland High Court on Friday.

    In November last year, a jury of seven women and five men came to the unanimous decision that the then 27-year-old man – who continues to have his name suppressed – murdered Millane in the Auckland CityLife hotel on December 1 or 2, 2018 after a roughly four-hour Tinder date.

There are further charges pending against this creep hence the name suppression. It wouldn’t be a surprise if he has raped or attempted to kill prior to murdering Grace. To suggest this was a “bung tinder date” is not only callous, it is ignorant. He strangled her for 10 fucking minutes. Think about that. Give yourself an uppercut Kea. You’re normally much better than that.

    Hollywood needs to burn, NOW!!

    ‘I’M A SEXUAL CREATURE’ Steven Spielberg’s daughter Mikaela is a porn star and aspiring erotic dancer – and says her dad supports her career
    Describing herself as a “sexual creature” she told The Sun: “I got really tired of not being able to capitalize on my body and frankly, I got really tired of being told to hate my body.

    “And I also just got tired of working day to day in a way that wasn’t satisfying my soul.

    “I feel like doing this kind of work, I’m able to ‘satisfy’ other people, but that feels good because it’s not in a way that makes me feel violated.”
    She says she was groomed and abused by “predators” growing up – although she is keen to point out these men were outsiders and not anyone from her family or their circle of friends.

    She says that contributed to her suffering years of mental health issues including anorexia, borderline personality disorder and alcoholism.

    German gunman who killed 9 posted manifesto calling for genocide

    The German man who gunned down nine people near Frankfurt before killing himself and his mother posted a manifesto online in which he called for the “complete extermination” of many “races or cultures in our midst,” officials said.

    The attacker, identified as Tobias R., 43, went on a shooting spree at a hookah bar, a café and other sites in the city of Hanau on Wednesday night, killing nine people of foreign background, mostly Turkish, according to authorities.

          • So is special “K” left in charge while Comrade Cindy is on holiday in the sun again?
            Is she taking the private jet again?
            Which of the media are holding her hand?

    • And now the precedent is set no private land is safe and no settlement with Maori secure.

      This is a very bad idea.

    • Here is a more probable senario.
      Who will announce this do you think. Shane, well he has dodged the issue and is not inclined to get into this stuff. Kelvin can’t be bothered.

      My guess is that it will run on until the election. If they loose then they won’t have to front. If they win then they can say they have a mandate to do this.

      Peters won’t rock the boat at this time.

    • Now days narcissistic losers think negative comments on social media are bullying. Invariably those same people spew streams of toxic garbage at others.

      Fortunately the narcissistic losers often kill themselves. Which is a good thing.

        It’s all for the best really. Puts the skids under a lifetime of victimhood.

      • I think the the lower I.Q narcissistic losers tend to flounder later in life, and eventually go into politics.

        • They run around calling people nazis, racist, ignorant, losers, scum – then cry out and demand laws to protect them form “hate speech”.

  19. As the outrage Olympics rage on, over Grace’s bung Tinder date, us sane folk are increasingly concerned about trial by media.

    Imagine the following:

    1. You go on a Tinder date and end up having vigorous sex. During this you both fall off the bed and the woman breaks her neck.

    2. Because she is a photogenic blonde, the media run an intense campaign designed to trigger emotional reactions. While talking her up as a sweet lovely person.

    3. The media then run a campaign making you out as an evil sleaze. Attracted by the publicity, social media sluts step forward into the limelight to smear your character.

    4. After months of this the police charge you with murder and you are judged by a jury of imbeciles who have been whipped into a frenzy of emotion and outrage by media for months.

    Intellectual cripples dont understand that feeeelz are not facts. They also fail to understand that this could be them one day.

  20. For those who saw it, the image of commercial-property magnate Sir Robert Jones in the witness box at Wellington’s High Court with a set of earphones upside down on his head was comical.

    But more than just a laugh at his expense, the image and some of the evidence Jones gave in court revealed a man who, despite his sharp mind, quick wit and voracious consumption of current affairs, is out of sync with some aspects of contemporary life. Whether that extends as far as holding views that could be considered by an ordinary person to be racist was left unanswered.

    A good read.
    Jones stopped the case at the right place.

  21. We usually think of viral respiratory infections, like the common cold, as mild nuisances that pass in a few days. But the Wuhan coronavirus has proven to be different. Of those infected, around 2% are reported to have died but the true mortality is unknown.

    There’s much we’re yet to learn about this new virus, but we know it often causes pneumonia, an infection of the lungs which produces pus and fluid and reduces the lungs’ ability to absorb oxygen.

    Of the first 99 people with severe infection, three-quarters had pneumonia involving both lungs. Around 14% appeared to have lung damage caused by the immune system, while 11% suffered from multi-organ system failure, or sepsis.

    Others are at risk of complications from being treated in hospitals, such as acquiring other infections.
