  1. Former Green MP doesn’t see a problem with illegal roadblocks – thinks criticising them is racist “it’s their land after all”

    Well colour me surprised, who’d have thunk the Greens would support violent thugs threatening ordinary, decent people going about their lawful business!

    Because that is what POS nobody Catherine DelaHunty is shouting about on Twatter. What the hell is the matter with these idiots from the Greens, it’s like there is an absolutely bottomless pit of hypocrisy where they dredge these oxygen thieves up from.

    And Catherine you dumb as fuck ne’er do well, the roads do not belong to gang members – that’s a flat-out lie. At best there is a dubious legal loophole that might allow for some NZ citizens to make a (unlikely to be successful) “claim” of ownership of the land roads are built on– but that is about it. I know mouth breathers like you have trouble discerning fact from fiction – but the state highways are “owned” by the NZTA as a public service to all NZers (yes, even worthless ones like you). Public local roads are the province of local authorities – again in regard to providing a public service to all NZers.

    Why are people on the left such compulsive liars? It’s almost as if they have to make shit up to try to create substance for their delusional state of mind!

  2. Damn! Another inconvenient Climate Alarmism truth!

    I guess I see now why the fear-mongering global elites/NWO have been so keen to help CCP with their bio-weapon. The most effective Chicken Little strategy (Global Warming) since the Cold War is beginning to collapse under the effects of the Grand Solar Minimum.

    While Mayor (wet girls’) Blouse has been pumping up the volume about faux Covid death numbers, New York has just experienced an April where the temperature NEVER got above 70F (yeah I know in NZ terms 21C is respectable – but this is incredibly unusual in the urban heat sink of NYC). This cooling state of affairs hasn’t happened very often in the past, the last time being 1940.

    It’s such an incredible state of affairs it is surprising the media aren’t covering it!

    It is just so inconvenient when facts keep on failing to support the fear-mongering “science”. But hey! We must trust the experts – they wouldn’t lie to us – even when facts prove them wrong. Ve Must Believe der Experts – fur der gut of das Reich!

      • The formula seems to be:
        There is an existential threat of _____(insert name of threat)______. If we do __(action to prevent “threat”)_____ then the threat will go away. To do this, you need to __(stop doing something/start doing something/pay a new tax)____.

        The existential threat always has to be framed as something we are doing directly, even if in fact it is being done by a completely different populatin on the other side of the world. For example, over-population or stripping of tropical rainforest.

          When you see it – it’s painfully obvious. So obvious in fact, that it is very reminiscent of something Josef Goebels said “If you tell a lie that is so preposterous, then no one would believe you’d have the audacity to try it on”.

          Clearly, you can’t be too audacious in your lies so long as you have big business behind you and the media running interference.

          • As I discussed about “global overpopulation” the other day, since the birthrates in the populations of the West and Far East are already well below replacement level, there is logically no need to do anything in these regions. The “problem” will solve itself.

            Logically, Mr. Gates would want to direct his “population controlling” actions in the parts of the world where the birthrate exceeds 2.1 children per woman.

        • “What is a virus?

          Quoting the National Institute of Health: “A virus is an infectious agent that occupies a place near the boundary between the living and the nonliving. It is a particle much smaller than a bacterial cell, consisting of a small genome of either DNA or RNA surrounded by a protein coat. Viruses enter host cells and hijack the enzymes and materials of the host cells to make more copies of themselves. Viruses cause a wide variety of diseases in plants and animals, including AIDS, measles, smallpox, and polio”, and of course the various strains of coronavirus, including SARS-CoV-2[1] .

          They can enter the body through the nose, mouth or breaks in the skin. Different viruses infect different types of cells based upon the ability of the virus to both recognize the host cell type and successfully enter the cells. Once inside (infection), virus genome is activated to produce the replication proteins necessary to create new virus particles, and the cycle is repeated. For example, cold and flu viruses will attack cells that line the respiratory or digestive tracts. Norovirus, for example, invades the gastro-intestinal tract. The cells of the lungs and bronchi are targets for SARS-CoV-2.
          Viruses can stay active on surfaces for different amounts of time, depending on the virus, the surface type, and the environment. Cold viruses can remain active on surfaces for up to a week, while flu viruses can survive for about 24 hours, and the SARS-CoV-2 virus remains active for about 72 hours. It’s during this time that the virus is quietly adherent to surfaces, waiting to be taken up by a passing host, that restorers have their opportunity to intervene.”

          This is a part of a very long article in an industry Magazine.
          The use of ozone technology is a well known virus detroyer. Ozone is that funny smell you get when its rained and out comes the sun. Its a very pwerful killer of bacteria and viruses.
          Our problen is that we had had so little rain during the summer.

          “As we’ve already discussed, viruses are not living organisms in the traditional sense – they are not made of cells, they cannot reproduce without invading a host cell, they do not respond to environmental stimuli, and they have no metabolism. Because a virus is not “alive” in the first place, it therefore cannot be “killed”. References to killed virus in the medical literature refer to a technique where virus are chemically or mechanically inactivated so that they can be used in the production of vaccines or used in research without the possibility of causing infection, or in our case, to disinfect a surface or space. It is in this sense that we are using the term “inactivating”, where we are using ozone to chemically treat a virus so that it cannot infect living cells.

          How does ozone inactivate viruses?

          To address this question, I reached out to some of the most knowledgeable doctors on the topic of ozone and viruses in the country. Dr. Gérard Sunnen is a medical doctor in New York City, specializing in the uses of ozone in the medical field, ranging from cutting-edge ozone therapy to the use of ozone as a disinfectant. According to Dr. Sunnen. “Ozone has unique disinfectant properties. As a gas, it has a penetration capacity that liquids do not possess. In view of the fact that , SARS-CoV-2, MERS, and previous SARS strains persist on fomites (surfaces) for up to several days, it is suggested that ozone technology be applied to the decontamination of medical and other environments”.

          Knowing that something works isn’t enough; let’s look at how ozone works at inactivating viruses. “Typically, viruses are small, independent particles, built of crystals and macromolecules. Unlike bacteria, they multiply only within the host cell. Ozone destroys viruses by diffusing through the protein coat into the nucleic acid core, resulting in damage of the viral RNA. At higher concentrations, ozone destroys the capsid or exterior protein shell by oxidation” explains Dr. Sunnen. Further, “most research efforts on ozone’s virucidal effects have centered upon ozone’s propensity to break apart lipid molecules at sites of multiple bond configuration. Indeed, once the lipid envelope of the virus is fragmented, its DNA or RNA core cannot survive”.

          To Summarize

          Ozone, having been proven in the lab and in the field to be an extremely effective virucide and full-spectrum antimicrobial, killing pathogenic bacteria and fungi, offers many benefits over alternative ways of disinfecting.

          Because it is a gas, it has a penetration capacity that liquids do not possess. ”

          theres much more tech stuff so this is just by way of passing on what the renovation Industry knows about these things.

  5. A little girl was leaning into a lion’s cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her
    by the collar of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter
    her, all under the eyes of her screaming parents.

    A biker jumps off his Harley, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose
    with a powerful punch. Whimpering from the pain, the lion jumps back,
    letting go of the girl, and the biker brings the girl to her terrified
    parents, who thank him endlessly.

    A BBC reporter, Laura Kuenssberg, has watched the whole event.

    Laura, addressing the Harley rider says, “Sir, this was the most gallant and bravest thing I’ve seen a man do in my whole life.”

    The Harley rider replies, “Why, it was nothing, really. The lion was behind
    bars. I just saw this little kid in danger, and acted as I felt right.”

    Kuenssberg “Well, I’ll make sure this won’t go unnoticed. I’m a BBC
    journalist, you know, and tomorrow’s news will run this story. So, what
    do you do for a living, and what political affiliation do you have?”

    The biker replies “I’m a British Army veteran, a Conservative and I voted for Brexit”. The journalist leaves.

    The following morning the biker turns on BBC News to see if it indeed brings news of his actions.

    BBC Headline: RIGHT WING UK VETERAN ASSAULTS AFRICAN IMMIGRANT & STEALS HIS LUNCH.

    And THAT pretty much sums up the BBC’s approach to the news these days.

  13. Notoriously slow road projects may move to fast lane under new Covid-19 economic plan

    Large-scale projects will soon be able to start sooner in New Zealand thanks to a change by the Government designed to help combat the stalling of the nation’s economy due to Covid-19.
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/notoriously-slow-road-projects-may-move-fast-lane-under-new-covid-19-economic-plan

    Environment Minister David Parker said the sorts of projects that would benefit from quicker consenting included roading, walking and cycling, rail, housing, sediment removal from silted rivers and estuaries, new wetland construction, flood management works, and projects to prevent landfill erosion.

    “We are acting quickly to get the economy moving again and our people working. Part two of the RMA will still be applied. Projects are being advanced in time, but environmental safeguards remain,” Mr Parker said.

    “We went hard and early to beat the virus and now we’re doing the same to get the economy moving too.

    “The success of our health response gives us a head start on the world to get our economy moving again and this fast-tracking process will allow our economic recovery to accelerate.”

    The changes were approved by Cabinet last week and new legislation is expected to be passed in June.

There will be hundreds of guys & gals finishing up on the Transmission Gully project early next year who will walk into the roading projects.

  14. Coronavirus hype biggest political hoax in history

    The response to the coronavirus is hyped. And in time, this hype will be revealed as politically hoaxed.

    In fact, COVID-19 will go down as one of the political world’s biggest, most shamefully overblown, overhyped, overly and irrationally inflated and outright deceptively flawed responses to a health matter in American history, one that was carried largely on the lips of medical professionals who have no business running a national economy or government.

    The facts are this: COVID-19 is a real disease that sickens some, proves fatal to others, mostly the elderly — and does nothing to the vast majority.

    That’s it.

    That, in a nutshell, is it.

    There It Is: CDC Equates Coronavirus Hospitalizations to Seasonal Flu and Finally Admits It’s MUCH LESS Dangerous for Children

    In late February, nearly a month after Presient Trump banned travel from China to the United States in January, the CDC terrorized Americans by claiming the Wuhan coronavirus had a mortality rate of 2.3% at its epicenter.

    Two weeks later WHO leader, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, sparked a global panic when he claimed the COVID-19 had a 3.4% mortality rate and then compared that number to the annual estimated seasonal flu mortality rate of 0.1%.

    These irresponsible and completely inaccurate statements led to the greatest economic crash since the Great Depression.

    Aged care workers not being included in Ministry of Health review, union claims

    The Ministry of Health’s review into aged care facilities during the Covid-19 outbreak is underway, but the E tū workers union says relevant staff are being excluded from the processes.

    “The review needs workers like us properly involved so we can explain these experiences and work with others on the solutions. We’re the experts,” Southland aged care worker Aroha Carney says.

    “This is basically just another form of self-regulation which has proven to not work across industries which will only produce what the providers and DHBs allow it to.

      • When the RMA was enacted in 1991 it was a necessary piece of legislation. Basically all it did was prevent a landowner or their agent from exporting a problem across their boundary. For example prior to 1991 there wasn’t much to stop you from dozing tracks or pads anywhere on your property & bugger the effects on the next door neighbour or river users.

        But it was poorly written & immediately hijacked by Nimbys & business rivals to stop progress or make it so expensive as not to be worth while. Worse still it embedded yet another layer of bureaucracy into a system already collapsing under its own weight.

        The legislation doesn’t require amendment. It needs to be set on fire & replaced by something workable.

            The RMA instead permits an activity or construction only after its potential consequences have been mitigated or considered acceptable. Where it has come unstuck is the legal costs involved in getting a favourable decision.

            The common factor is lawyers & their fees.

If inflation comes like it did in the 1970s, it will come through a commodity shock and probably won’t hit New Zealand because we don’t have food issues. So in a way we become the Saudi Arabia of the 1970s where we have a commodity that the rest of the world needs and that’s good quality food. We produce enough food, I think, to feed 40 million people,” says Manji.

  28. I am just enquiring if any one knows how many people have been hospitalised in total with this virus? SFA if you add the numbers up I am sure. Why did the government pay out 12 weeks payment to employers? New regulations are coming out to make businesses comply with every 5 minutes. It is going to put them against the wall and fail. Seriously I think more people are usually hospitalised with annual flue viruses than with this. This morning I met a man at the dog park who told me the that it’s a dreadful virus, I said really? not many have been in hospital with it though, paracetamol and perhaps bed rest seem to have done the trick for them. He stalked off. He also had his dog off lead in total disregard to the council new notices of dogs on leads till further notice. But then I let mine off as well as I. cannot see any point in not letting them have a run. I remember watching a foreign film about 20 years ago about a man who kept people underground in a huge bunker pretending that there had been a disaster. The issue wasn’t that they were in any danger, it was that he had them down there as control issue. I believe this is going on here. I believe they are manufacturing cases to keep us under control longer, which makes no sense at all that the number of cases are increasing. Cal me a conspiracy theorist buy you have to wonder at it all don’t you?

    Ardern says there’s been a real effort to make sure the Government is engaging with Māori as early and as quickly as possible.

    So far Māori health providers such as Whānau Ora and more than 130 health organisations have been at the centre of the Māori health response. A number of Marae and iwi groups have also played a key role in supporting kaumātua and families.

    District health boards, Ardern adds, are also forming key relationships with Māori as well.

    DR. FAUCI BACKED CONTROVERSIAL WUHAN LAB WITH MILLIONS OF U.S. DOLLARS FOR RISKY CORONAVIRUS RESEARCH
    28/04/20.
    In 2019, with the backing of NIAID, the National Institutes of Health committed $3.7 million over six years for research that included some gain-of-function work. The program followed another $3.7 million, 5-year project for collecting and studying bat coronaviruses, which ended in 2019, bringing the total to $7.4 million.

    Many scientists have criticized gain of function research, which involves manipulating viruses in the lab to explore their potential for infecting humans, because it creates a risk of starting a pandemic from accidental release.

                    • Being the daughter of a suicidee, I was conscious of the fact that I may have inherited some of my mother’s tendencies…
                      One day I realised I was older than she was when she shot herself (age 48)… I hadn’t had any episodes of depression as she had… so I sort of figured that I probably hadn’t inherited her depressive gene (s).

                      I differ from her in some other ways – I’m not a perfectionist; I’m not a worrier; I don’t take any psychoactive drugs/medications.

                      I have younger relatives who suffer depressive episodes (and I’d describe these folks as perfectionists).

                      I’m a bit of a believer in “near enough is good enough” and failure isn’t a bad thing.

                    I agree that not many could say this.
                    After spending 3 months in psyche wards in 03, I gained the distinction, after having previously been ‘under section’.
                    This, after suffering a major depressive episode from being left to calve and milk 400 cows on my own. I sadly hit the wall.
                    Luckily for me, after my partner ran with the kids, that I had a wonderfully supportive family, especially a stoic father.

        • From this layman’s pov I’d expect the greatest jump in 30 to 50 YO males especially those who own their own businesses. Many of their women will jump ship with the kids when the money stops rolling in & this will exacerbate their positions.

          As for youth……depends on their makeup. If they were drama queens & emos before I guess they’re at an increased risk.

            Many won’t cope as they are in denial. They think house prices might drop 10% and it will take 2 years to fully recover.

              I drove a stocktruck for sixteen years & one of my workmates had someone do away with themselves by driving a car straight at him. It really fucked the poor bugger over & apparently it’s the thing that worries train drivers too.

              No nasty guns & the nation’s HT drivers can pucker up & take their chances.

                I would experience train delays a couple of times a month on my commutes back in the late 1980s in Tokyo due to this kind of thing, so it is very real to me.

                It is so regrettable that a middle-aged man (in the prime of his life) feels that there is no other option left to him.

    A mate had been out hunting this morning and dropped me off a venison.
    I thought I would dump the skin at the local transfer station and when I got
    there, a girl at the gate with face mask, was taking names and recording reg.nos.

    This clip board carry on never occurred during the level 4, and it appears that it
    just started today.

    Beachgoers and builders in the firing line amid warning of ‘concerning’

    “We’ve had a number of small gatherings and people gathering in a social setting and we’d just like to remind everyone that under Alert Level 3 now, is not the time to socialise or to host a party,” acting assistant commissioner Scott Fraser told 1 NEWS.

    Simon Bridges holds steady on leaving Level 3 but health experts disagree

    National leader, Simon Bridges says New Zealand needs to leave Covid-19 Alert Level 3 now with BusinessNZ agreeing it’s time to breathe life back into the economy.

    The leader of the opposition says the country is desperate to get the economy moving.

    “I think it’s gone on too long, let’s get New Zealand working again,” he told 1 NEWS.

    And he’s got 6,000 reasons why, one for every new person who signed up for a benefit last week.

    “Like the man who’s told me he’s now feeding his family porridge and cereal for dinner, we can do better than that and the big answer is to end the lockdown,” Mr Bridges says.

  43. “Remdesivir Is Probably Worthless” – A Trauma Surgeon Exposes “Drug Company’s Shenanigans”

    Markets got very excited (briefly) this week about a study finding a Gilead Sciences drug helped coronavirus patients heal a little more quickly.

    But that was all the trial found: remdesivir isn’t the miracle cure that will get us all out of lockdowns tomorrow, unfortunately.

    Worse, as Bloomberg’s Faye Flam writes, the trial was rushed to get quick FDA approval, without getting helpful information on what kinds of patients it helps or hurts the most; and now that the study is over, we’ve forever lost a chance to help doctors treat virus patients better.

    All of which raises a significant number of questions and Acute Care Surgeon (and Asst Professor of Surgery at Wash U.) Mark Hoofnagle warns “I am truly sorry to say, Remdesivir is probably worthless…”

    https://www.zerohedge.com/health/remdesivir-probably-worthless-trauma-surgeon-exposes-drug-companys-shenanigans

    Also on Wednesday, results were published by the Lancet medical journal of a trial conducted in China that concluded remdesivir failed to improve patients’ condition or reduce the pathogen’s presence in the bloodstream.

    Remdesivir: ‘Clear-cut’ results show Gilead drug can fight coronavirus, says Anthony Fauci

    “Unfortunately, our trial found that, while safe and adequately tolerated, remdesivir did not provide significant benefits over placebo,” said Professor Bin Cao, from China-Japan Friendship Hospital and Capital Medical University in China, who led the research.

    • Of course “big pharma” Fauci will want to push remdesivir it costs $1000 a dose. Meanwhile in Italy they have started giving hydroxychloroquine out free of charge at pharmacies because they are satisfied that it really is effective and works. The drug, Plaquenil, costs about ten cents per pill so the vaccine hawks will hate it.
      An unconfirmed report from the UK which I have not been able to verify yet says that remdesivir leads to male sterility in which case they should start using it throughout Africa and the ME without further delay even if it doesn’t work on the CCP virus.

      • The proof keeps piling up.
        Hydroxychloroquine Has about 90 Percent Chance of Helping COVID-19 Patients

        To date, the total number of reported patients treated with HCQ, with or without zinc and the widely used antibiotic azithromycin, is 2,333, writes AAPS, in observational data from China, France, South Korea, Algeria, and the U.S. Of these, 2,137 or 91.6 percent improved clinically. There were 63 deaths, all but 11 in a single retrospective report from the Veterans Administration where the patients were severely ill.

        The antiviral properties of these drugs have been studied since 2003. Particularly when combined with zinc, they hinder viral entry into cells and inhibit replication. They may also prevent overreaction by the immune system, which causes the cytokine storm responsible for much of the damage in severe cases, explains AAPS. HCQ is often very helpful in treating autoimmune diseases such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.

    Bloomfield has given us all a right scolding for being naughty at Level 3, and if we don’t behave he won’t give us Level 2.

    Question: MMM, BP and the Outlaws seems to be doing a good enough job of keeping the country supplied with their drugs of choice despite a Level 4 lock down, so why doesn’t MoH contract distribution of Flu Vaccines to the professionals. On time, every time, come rain or come shine.
    After all, we’re already contracting out law and order to them.
