    Youth again denied bail on Christchurch terror attack video sharing charge
    David Clarkson17:43, May 14 2019
    ———————————————————–

    So what do we know about the detention of this person?

    What do we know about his past?

    Why is he being held in detention for streaming a video that even the PM has watched?

    Asking becuase we simply don’t know.

    And we apparently are to (insert your own word) to be told.

    Hardly open Justice from the most transparent government ever.

    Now there may be good reasons but we are not even informed of those reasons.

    This is not nice behavior.
    At my age I reckon I can handle the information, may even dispute it were I of a mind, (although unlikely) and more to the point if that person is a threat to the community perhaps the community should be made aware.

    But then I’m not a Judge, policeman nor a politician.

      “The Police State comes to Christchurch”
      32 mins 58 secs.

      He shows the videos, the 2 police inquiry videos, “Cross the Rubicon”’s video

      Then some interesting knowledge and connections about things in Christchurch, which I was not aware of from the 14 minutes mark, or maybe I am not in the loop. ?
      That is where, I think it makes points close on your topic.

      Not sure if it is the same youth, but there does seem a similar connection, as a number of people have similiar charges, and it seems this one with a part in a tragic ending.
      Later when I have more time I will look and think on it more.
      See what you make of it?
      My time in part is busy pushing other barrows. 🙂 but always good to see how things interconnect.

      • Is this the same youth that jailed as a 17 year old,and so possibly turned 18.
        As mentioned in the video at the 14 minute mark, is that the correct understanding of the tragic death of his father, or is their a mismatch of information?

      • Unbelievable. Profanity is all i can think of toward them. Hey Coppers- if you’re reading this, I am a Trump supporter, I despise the UN, and i don’t want people from the 3rd world sponging off the NZ taxpayer. I loathe JA and all like her. I am white. I may or may not have friends and family from other ethnicities. None of your F*CKING business. I am heterosexual. I am a climate denier. I eat meat every day. I am one true, evil sonofabitch. Please eat shit.

    • These journialist must have a big stack of news stories about “Peace In Our Time” liar.
      Just waiting to spit out on slow news days, our dear leader has been gone since the weekend.
      I am sure when Winney gave his Magic interview yesterday with Peter Williams from sitting on the loo, he said Kelvin is only acting till Saturday and dear leader was home, cause he was on a junket!

  2. Lots of frowny face from Ardern for the international media at Macrons virtue signalling gab-fest. And a swipe at the US with a typically vacuous comment of “I don’t understand the United States”.

    Well Comrade, they have this thing called the US Constitution which is designed to enshrine the rights of its citizens against overbearing or tyrannical government. It takes a serious Congressional majority to make amendments; not the whim of a 4% party. Now there’s a thing…

    Obviously this is an anathema to a raging Marxist like her.

    • So Ardern is looking to see how Macron does things in Paris, in controlling “yellow vests”.
      As the police; now say “Normal policing”. and many others also wish for here.

  3. Massachusetts Senator and Democratic 2020 candidate Elizabeth Warren is not fucking around with Fox News, saying on Tuesday that she is turning down an invite to do a town hall-style event on the network.

    “Hard pass,” Warren said in a Tuesday statement, where she also blasted the network as a “hate-for-profit racket.”

    This will be fun. Fox should roll her forever.

  4. Only a matter of time before Cactus gets a visit from the Stasi NZ Police I`m guessing,
    https://asianinvasion2019.blogspot.com/2019/05/where-is-sri-lanka-call.html

    Patrick Gower is now scouting message boards from his desk to file shock horror news reports that in the world, somewhere, right now, oh my god – white supremacy actually exists. Of course if English was not his sole language he could search other message boards and find hatred all over the world discussed about every topic imaginable. Beheadings of Westerners solely because they were guilty of being white, blacks hating whites, Asians hating blacks, blacks hating blacks, whites hating Jews. It is a horrid nasty wee world.

    She is one of the few real journalists in the country.

      • Gower did say “we should be looking for it”. I thought that what his job is, a paid ‘journalist’ that is meant to know about what is happening in the world and report it for the rest of us? Paddy, other people have jobs, you know, earning money to pay rent and bills and raise their children. Their jobs don’t allow them to spend all day doing research. That’s your job your knobhead!

        • Yesterday Plunket put out a call to listeners to inform him about ‘white supremacy’ and where are all these people Gower is seeing under the bed.
          The response.
          Only one twenty four year old female who was involved with Kyle Chapmans group for a while in her teens.
          She said even they were no threat .
          The PM used the term this morning in a way that underlines her lack of ability to think things through and her comment on the USA and gun laws was extraordinary.
          No life experience and for a PM to have no understanding of the American constitution (and I bet many of our MP’s both sides are the same) ,is poor indeed.
          Worrying times.

        • The road leads to “Unconscious bias training”. In fact, Gower should lead the way with an open and transparent “Unconscious bias test”. I suspect we’ll discover one of those white supremacists in Gower’s home, is Gower himself.

          (Open and transparent in this instance means the direct opposite of what the CoL means by open and transparent).

      • Exactly WG. And it ain’t just taxes.

        I note the charity outfits all go begging to those of us who work for a living (or have worked for our living) rather than expecting their beneficiaries to actually contribute to their own assistance.

        How about youise show some compassion for the poor, homeless and lonely people in our society.

        as an aside: What the fuck is a “youise”?

    • Morning Fairy, I for a few days had thought you had given up the good fight., but alas you have returned. Great Long Long Weekend.
      Under Socialism, the poor and homeless end up on a hiding to nowhere.
      Found it really odd you linked the lonely to them. Many choose to live alone and be lonely, it is their right and choice at this stage.
      Venezuela is working a treat for the comrades, a chicken costs a months wages, the locals are chowing down of what’s left of the animals in the zoo, yes socialism is so wonderful. At least they are being bought to same level as promised, just wasn’t supposed to be rock bottom.
      At the front in WW2, Stalin had the comrades in the front line issued with a rifle, second wave had the spare bullets as they all ended up at the front.
      His comment in wiping out a generation, “What’s a generation” And shrugged his shoulders.
      My Grandfathers, Parents and myself fought and protected your rights of freedom. I find it a disgrace, you think you have the right to lecture me on who you think I care for and how.
      I care for my sister who has cancer, I care for many things, I am of the right, I care that my grandfather carried in dead brother out of the trenches in France, wounded by the same shrapnel, just to see a socialist arsehole like Macron totally root what once was a proud nation. Four years of mud and shit and hell for this outcome.
      Don’t ever think you care more than anyone else, in reality, I have have most probably cared and cried a lot more than you, I am 68 years old.
      I now weep for NZ and it’s direction.
      Your great leader is a caring socialist, she is your leader, not mine. She really is Winston’s appointed leader, nothing more.
      I hope you follow her over the cliff, the only way you will learn.
      We can be rest assured you will learn nothing of the ills of socialism in this current very sick society.
      Meanwhile Cindy will continue to fly the roasting planet, spewing forth diatribe and you will suck it all up. I feel very sad for you.
      Have a wonderful day.

    • Fairydust, when I give up a few hours once a fortnight to give plasma to the Red Cross, am I being caring or not? You really need to seek help immediately on guiding you to a more stable path.
      Do you think a homeless druggy getting my lifesaving plasma, says I don’t want any plasma from a selfish uncaring right thinking nutter.
      They wouldn’t care where it comes from, as long as it and their next hit keeps coming.
      Must be hard not being able rationally think a phrase through before you falsely accuse a big proportion of society just because they have different beliefs to yours.
      It is bigoted individuals like you that makes me question why I do turn up once a fortnight, you see it as almost my duty to do it, but I am still a mean, miserable uncaring person. You are a few sheep short in the top paddock in the logic department. Young, Naive, I bet you think milk comes out of cartons from a supermarket!
      Maybe we could have right and left blood banks in Cindy’s new eutopia.
      I know which one will have higher stocks all the time.

        This is truly disappointing news!
        After such a glorious display of mental agility, rapist wit and heroic combating of the evil machinations of the vile “rich pricks” I was seriously considering recommending comrade Fairydust be reassigned here to the Politburo.
        I feel so let down… How am I to explain to Dear Leader that the most promising candidate we’ve seen for some time is simply a troll account?

    • that is wrong on so many levels. For a start it cannot be in NZ as we wouldn’t deport him. He would say he was at the CHCH mosque, and we would pay him an extra $12,000 for the hurt he never suffered. Being a refugee he would have witnessed far worse in the shithole he came from.

  9. So…much…ignorance in this article by Henry Cooke:

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/112724135/christchurch-call-could-lead-to-work-on-redpilling-of-online-radicalisation

    Jacinda Ardern’s Christchurch Call pledge could act as a start point for a much wider push against online radicalisation or “red-pilling”.

    Being “red-pilled” is online shorthand for having one’s eyes opened – generally to extreme right-wing views about gender and race.

    Eye’s opened yes, the rest no. It’s clear where Cooke’s bias resides.

    From Wikipedia:

    Red Pill: A life of harsh knowledge, desperate freedom, and the brutal truths of reality

    Blue Pill: A life of luxurious security, tranquil happiness, and the blissful ignorance of illusion

    But the ignorance (and bias) is even more amazing with this comment:

    “Imagine a spectrum. On the left-hand side of the section you have the calm science section of YouTube. On the other side you have the crazy radicalising crazy stuff…It always wants to tilt you this way,” Harris said.

    Has Harris bothered to look at “left-hand side” of YouTube? No, he hasn’t. (I don’t believe he was being neutral about using “left-hand” in the slightest). I’m sure there is batshit crazy “right wing” stuff on YouTube but the Left wing is notoriously batshit crazy. Perhaps Harris is comfortable with extreme misandry and left wing racism, etc and so doesn’t recognise it when it’s his team. It wouldn’t surprise me.

    Yes it was a sad event! Carried out by a foriegner, but get over yourself!
    Cindys going to come home waving a piece of paper saying “Peace In Our Time”, or dragging her arse!

Of course I, like the majority of kiwis were all horrified and pleased it was not a kiwi that carried out such a heinous act towards people going about their own business. I felt sorry for the victims, then I moved on. I am, however, concerned about the opportunity the massacre caused for those in power who are against democracy and our way of life. We are seeing the results of that…

  11. Just stumbled across Cindy being interviewed on the Late Show by Stephen Colbert. Must have been on the trip to New York for the week at the UN. She throws Trump under the bus, tells us Clarke is a klutz, and that she auditioned for a part in the ‘Lord of the Rings’ movie…

        • To me the whole late night talk show thing went to a nightly ridicule of Trump, and although Trump can be his own worst enemy at times, the insults are different these days- it’s directed at tens of millions of voters who don’t happen to share lefty political views, rather than taking the piss out of one politician. Nasty, self-loathing Americans are as pathetic as it gets.

  12. The Australian Channel Nine subsidiary ‘Stuffed’continues with its anti science nonsense.
    You cant deny globby warming to them and there are white supremacists under many beds.

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/motoring/112705437/over50s-leave-youngsters-stranded-on-basic-car-maintenance
    They say:-
    ‘Screen wash: Keep regularly topped up with one containing antifreeze’.
    Duh!
    Stuffed fail again. Try Bars Bugs or similar.
    There are even comments correcting them but too stoopid.

      • Brenton Tarrant believes he is following in Nelson Mandela’s foot prints. Should Nelson Mandela’s life story be removed as a bad example for ‘white supremacists” to follow?
        Tarrant’s actions are way more reprehensible than Nelson Mandela’s, or are they?

        As Nelson Mandela was prepared to die, as he stated in his court case, but years later awarded a Nobel Peace Prize, freedom and ultimately Presidency of South Africa.

        Tarrant believes he will be freed and awarded a Peace Prize too.

        • I’m sure the Left would love to sanitise Mandela. It wouldn’t surprise me if there plenty of revisionist historians now that have made him out to be a saint whose butter wouldn’t melt in his mouth.

          He committed (ordered) terrorist acts to kill women and children simply for being white, and for trying to impose a communist regime.

          Differences: Mandela was part of the leadership of Umkhonto we Sizwe. It doesn’t appear Tarrant was part of any leadership over a terrorist organisation.

          Umkhonto we Sizwe committed 193 acts of terror. Tarrant 2. He has a lot of catch-up to do (I’m being facetious).

          Undisputed murders from Umkhonto we Sizwe: 63.[1]

          Minimum number of injuries: 488.[1]

          [1] Wikipedia gives up, so these numbers are based on the details actually listed. It seems the kill and injury rate is a lot higher.

          So, Tarrant isn’t currently in Mandela’s league and will probably never win the Nobel Peace Prize as a result.

    • They seem to be going out of their way to be stupid this week.

      I have to say if you need to do that much maintenance, you should probably invest in another more reliable car.

      Also, I’d put antifreeze in my water tank or radiator. Something they don’t mention but do for screen wash.

      • McCarten is part of the illogical, unholy alliance behind the John Tamihere Akl Mayoral bid.
        There is Tamihere for Mayor and Christine Fletcher for deputy.

        Fletcher’s opponent for multiple council elections has been the rabid Scottish leftie Cathy Casey.
        Cathy Casey’s dahling is Matt McCarten
        McCarten is involved with the Tamihere/Fletcher campaign
        ..as is Michelle Boag.

        Michelle Boag was part of Auckland Future 3 years ago that split the centre right council vote in Auckland providing a dismal result and lots of high spending Greens and Labour trash at the trough.

        Boag was behind the abysmal um ah Vic Crone who performed poorly.

  13. Don’t know about you lot but I am so over our stand in PM grandstanding on the world stage.

    So bloody embarrassing that this immature pip squeak is telling world leaders how to run their countries. I would love to have been a fly on the wall when Trump found out what she had said about America’s arms control.

    I truly feel sorry for the fisherman who must be driven mad by her incessant “I am the greatest” chant.

  14. Wonder how many of you are aware that employers are going to be carrying the tab for their employees domestic violence.
    This is now part of employment Law and adds another burden to employment costs.

    Employers are forced to pay for something they derive no value from.

    The Act gives employees affected by domestic violence the right to:

    take at least 10 days of paid domestic violence leave. This is separate from annual leave, sick leave and bereavement leave. See Domestic violence leave rights and responsibilities.

    ask for short-term flexible working arrangements. This can be for up to 2 months. See Short-term flexible working.

    not be treated adversely in the workplace because they might have experienced domestic violence. This is discrimination. See Resolving problems with domestic violence rights.

    It does not matter when the domestic violence took place. Employees still have these rights if they experienced domestic violence before they began working for their current employer or before the law changed on 1 April 2019.

    Domestic violence leave rights and responsibilities

    Employers must give at least 10 days of paid domestic violence leave each year to employees who qualify.
    https://www.employment.govt.nz/leave-and-holidays/domestic-violence-leave/

    Won’t be employing any more Maori women as they are the people most affected.

    • As an ex truckie of about 35 years ago I may be able to add to the debate. Anyone who thinks that they’re going to have angels at the wheel wants to have a look at what the job entails.

      Heavy truck drivers:

      “*work varying hours depending on what kind of truck driving they do. The number of hours they are allowed to work is governed by New Zealand Transport Agency regulations

      *work in conditions that may be stressful, including poor weather and heavy traffic

      *may work locally or travel long distances, which can mean spending nights away from home.”

      For these conditions they may expect a pay package of “$17-$30 per hour” depending on the rig they’re driving & experience.

      https://www.careers.govt.nz/jobs-database/transport-and-logistics/transport-logistics/heavy-truck-driver/

      IOW they’re supposed to put up with this sort of shit, bosses pressuring the fuck out of them, drink & drug tests & continuous harassment from the road police. All for crap pay bordering on the adult minimum.

      It’s a wonder freight moves in this country.

      • Seems to be an anti truckie rhetoric, I have a son that has a class 5 and works driving trucks and I have a son with a class 3 or 4 who doesn’t use it but keeps it up. Anecdotally there is already a shortage of drivers, what sort of contraband are they meant to be shifting?

        • ……”what sort of contraband are they meant to be shifting”…..

          Who knows? If you really wanted to move stuff around I guess that a truck toolbox would be as good a receptacle as any but it would probably be just as easier to use a courier. Anecdotally in the late 70s & early 80s marijuana used to move around the country in refrigerated trucks but that is probably urban legend. In any case the current drug of choice is meth & you could probably fit a couple of million dollars worth in the saddle bag of a Harley & cut out the freight risks/costs.

          As an aside, at 70 I still hold all classes of license other than those involving passenger transport. We’re staying at our holiday home in the Far North & a couple of weeks ago the neighbour’s son who owns a freight business, on hearing that i had a Class 5, wanted me to work part/any time for him.

          Something has to break soon. If the employers, the police & the mummsies want perfect people to drive heavy transport then the wages have to go up. Currently it’s so bad that Kaitaia Transport are bringing in drivers from the Philippines.

    • NZTA has an utterly appalling record in recent years resulting in the CEO stepping down in Dec 2018. The Board Chairman Stiassny stood down a few weeks ago.

      Their appalling effort with Warrant of Fitness authorisation is terrible and the Dodgy licence industry has been a farce for years.
      There was a primetime piece of journalism about 7 or so years ago with a hidden camera showing how cash converts to a commercial licence, not skill.
      Nothing was done then or since then until the numbers of falsely licensed critters has reached critical mass. Note that after years of decline, road deaths have increased since 2013. (to be fair, they have in Victoria, AU, a comparable geo)
      Their oversight on the Kapiti expressway was underwhelming resulting in significant rework.
      Holy crap.
      Uncle M.O.W. could build roads 50 years ago that were fine for half a century. Now the road ‘building’ is bollocks.

      NZTA is a sick puppy.
