  1. Why do black lives matter more when a white person is involved?
    What is it that BLM protesters are actually asking for?
    Why is it that Black deaths are higher with CoVid-19 but now you do not care about that any more?

    Katie Hopkins.
    She gives those questions a good context.

    • The BLM protesters believe that equality of outcome will create a better society. They obviously don’t tolerate diversity of ability.

      • “Equality of outcome”

        Do they really understand the “laws of retaliation”?
        “An eye for an eye”?
        “Tooth for tooth”?

        So that all are the same, by making a re-distributive society?

      • With the greatest of respect I disagree, I don’t think the BLM protestors think much at all.

        In the US there are three types attending the BLM protests:
        – people still living on the DNC plantation, who are gullible enough to believe that the political party of the KKK, Jim Crow, slave owners who fought against emancipation etc and who have kept them poor as a ‘voter bank’ on welfare – best represent their interests
        and
        – criminals, either hard-core time-serving true criminals (mostly recently released from prison in Democrat contolled states – just (coincidentally – purely coincidentally) in time to take advantage of the free looting, or Soros/DNC-paid Antifa activist types who are fomenting the outrage
        and
        – fucked in the head brainwashed liberals who will do anything to be able to be able to virtue-signal their ‘progressive’ credentials on FB

        In short, in attendance at these riots are:
        – the criminally stupids
        – the criminals
        – the criminally woke.

  2. The life cycle of this virus is supposed to be 14 days. We’ve been 16 without a new case. But we have an existing active case who wouldn’t have been identified immediately on contracting it. So they’ve had it for 3 weeks? More porkies? Are we waiting for Cindy’s birthday on 26th July? Friday is the best day for announcing bad news, and Monday the best day for announcing good. Will today be the day the active case is cured?

    • Could all depend how often the WHO flip flops, and how the CCP reports things.

      2-14 days represents the current official estimated range for the novel coronavirus COVID-19.
      However, a case with an incubation period of 27 days has been reported by Hubei Province local government on Feb. 22 [12]
      In addition, a case with an incubation period of 19 days was observed in a JAMA study of 5 cases published on Feb. 21. [13]
      An outlier of a 24 days incubation period had been for the first time observed in a Feb. 9 study.[11] WHO said at the time that this could actually reflect a second exposure rather than a long incubation period, and that it wasn’t going to change its recommendations.

      https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/coronavirus-incubation-period/

      Possibly a virus, that in its persistence, would evolve to extend its incubation period, to become more successful?

      It is more likely Ardern, has know idea of how to understand risk, and how to weigh that up.
      Also like the lack of tests, lack of flue vaccines, lack of contact tracing staff, that she may all be well aware of, knowing of the “measle stuff ups and deaths”.
      She also can not live with certain things on her conscience, as that would stress her out so much, that no drug/pill would help her to at least appear sane.

      Then it also maneuvered by the handlers, to make the best, to what she feels is a good advantage for her control with socialist redistribution.
      That goes a long way to salve her conscience, to have no consequences that she can see, or care about.

    • But Saggy, it’s only been a week since the BLM/Covid spreading demonstration.

      Stoopid Cindy’s big plan to subvert the election relies upon a “second wave” so that we can go into lockdown again and then delay the electon so that we can allow mass electoral fraud postal voting and effectively suspend democracy.

      If the globalists can get away with this in their test tube site in NZ, then theyll reckon they can pull it off in the US -which is really what all this shit is all about. Trump has destroyed the globalist/NWO momentum and they’ll do anything ANYTHING to get rid of him because he’s out to get them.

  3. So the world famous medical hack job publication “The Lancet” have been caught out blatantly lying publishing information that proved HCQ was useless ,actually dangerous as a medicine for coronavirus,these people lied for no other reason than to hurt the POTUS .
    The swamp is deep and wide and they are all gathering their forces to oust Trump,if they are successful the NWO will be on the agenda once again with the full backing of the 120 filth in our parliament.
    scientists internationally are calling for resignations from that discredited once great publication the Lancet because of this farce.. .

      I think lying to hurt POTUS was the secondary reason. The primary reason was to help big Pharma, who stand to make a fortune with the vaccines –ie. as usual it is all about money.

    Revolves around “who knows Justine Damond shot dead by another officer in Minnesota”.
    Apparently “not as bad”.
    The problem being “an injustice put on him (that officer). 🙁

    Obviously justice is not what they really seek.

  5. Love Avi’s interviewing. How do you react when the woman says the shooting of Justine Damond “was different because Justine Damond had white supremacy”!! Did she mean because Justine was white it was her fault a cop shot her when she approached him for help while in her PJ’s?! 🙄

    • There is a strong belief (feelz) that “the injustices if the past must be put right”.
      The protesters feel that this will somehow make everything better.

      0

      • So following that through, how is it going to be better? What is the final outcome? How will eliminating all previous injustices stop future ones?
        These worldwide protests are not spontaneously happening, they are organised by the Marxists to disrupt and tear down our societies. We are all being played and manipulated.

        • waikatogirl,
          As I wrote, it is all about “feelz.” It’s mostly on the “he stole my lollypop and I want it back!” level. I am referring to the protesting masses, the “useful idiots”; not those parties who are said to be behind it all (according to the conspiracies).
          The issue of “how” and final outcome are never entertained. A bit like the sentiment of “let’s get rid of the kulaks and give the land back to the original ‘owners'”. The result: the farms fall apart, the orchard trees are cut down for firewood, and the people starve.
          There is no thinking; only feelings and emotions such as rage, hatred, fear, anger, etc. Emotion is not thought. Emotion is a reaction. Emotion is a test to a situation. Emotion is like the red light on the dashboard of your car when the oil pressure is getting low. It is definitely a warning that there is a problem, but without the intelligence to understand the meaning of the warning, and what steps to take to remedy the situation, disaster (or engine seizure) will occur.

            Cindy’s call for “kindness” and “wellbeing” is not having the desired effect. Everyone is unsettled and on edge. Trust levels have dropped, the country is not unified.

  6. Sad isn’t it? They are happy to speak with this gentleman in the first instance, but once they see he is asking about Justine or other statistics they all shy away. It’s nothing to do with BLM its all about how pissed off with their lives at this time, for what ever reason or they feel they should get out there due to social media pressure. Hollywood movie actors /other instagram people who have received accolades from the masses of non thinking people, are out there due to the fact they suddenly think they are not receiving the attention they once did, so have to do something to let the world out there. The masses of not thinking people think OH wow look at them aren’t they wonderful. It’s all just sad and pathetic that they would honour some man with a long list of criminal activities but don’t worry about police brutality in China, or the Eastern Block countries, or anything else much. It’s a sad sad world we are living in today. As Katie Hopkins in her talk says Did this all happen due to Trump? Is it just a 4 year thing? Did police killings happen during Obama’s time? Of course it did.

    • I saw that. Countdown removed all their specials pricing during the Covid-19 level shopping and say they are helping the poor with food parcels. Great virtue signalling Countdown, but what about the average shopper who missed out on ‘specials’ when you cancelled all price reducing during Covid-19 shopping. Shouldn’t Countdown be looking after their customers at all times.

Either way one should/could place blame on her if after the BLM mob all met up all over this country, if Covid is spread they will/should say what the F. k was she thinking? why didn’t she stop this, get the police out in force to ensure people stayed home, and if no one gets the virus, people should/could say well wasn’t all that a f. king waste of the economy for absolutely no reason to be under lockdown rules at all. Oh how I love this PC shit. It always comes back to bite them on the bum. It will be very interesting to watch and wait to see what happens.

  12. Media bias in NZ, great work Mr Farrar

    I see DPF has taken my advice and is getting treatment for his chronic TDS. He’s done a great bit of work surveying views on media bias. 2500 responses means this is a more significant and reliable sample than the big research companies do when they do their political polls.

    Basically, it says all of the NZ media is extremist, far-left with only NBR and Newstalk ZB hovering in the centre.

    GIven this info, will The Invisible Man Todd Muller grow a pair and start calling the NZ media on their overt and corrupt bias?

    I’m not holding my breath.

    But well done Mr Farrar, great work!

        We are in a post-truth environment, all that matters is the soundbite. Trying to explain something is just seen as another liar making excuses. We all know that the polling companies over sample left-leaning voters to get more positive results for the left. The simple truth is that:
        – here is a survey
        – it shows the media are incredibly biased
        – of course, the left-leaning media are going to protest – that is exactly what you’d do if you were biased.

  13. Coronavirus: Why moving to alert level 1 won’t save every business and job
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/money/2020/06/coronavirus-why-moving-to-alert-level-1-won-t-save-every-business-and-job.html

    But even at level 1 there’s no guarantee Kiwis will open their wallets, says economist Cameron Bagrie.

    “The big question both locally and around the globe, is going to be how is the consumer going to behave?” Bagrie asked on The AM Show on Monday.

    “Are we going to get back into it? Or be more conservative with our spending behaviour – more inclined to save for that rainy day, go out a little bit less… I think people are going to be a lot more conservative with their spending. We’ll spend a little bit, but not a lot.”

    “What does that mean? More subdued growth outlook over the coming six to 12 months – we can overlay a little bit of election-related uncertainty both in New Zealand and particularly in the United States,” he explained, referring to November’s US presidential election and our own general election in September.

  14. Is Becroft really this stupid? Really?

    Good catch from anti-welfare fraud blogger Lindsay Mitchell – pointing out the “dumb as a bag of hammers” statement by Children’s Commissioner and clearly left-wing activist Judge Becroft.

    Becroft is complaining about how child abuse is falling now that CYF is increasingly taking children away from abusive Maori parents, I know that’s not what the silly old tosser said – but it’s like he’s never heard of cause and effect.

    Now that some children are safe from abusive parents, he wants the rest to be left with the remaining abusive parents.

    I fear for the species!

    • I would say Becroft is irresponsible and malicious.

      He is in the same zone as the Bishops and so on that instead of tackling the rapey priests head on, they moved the rapists around parishes and around parishes between countries.
      A cool thing you can do when you have an international pedo ring. As the Vatican has (had?).

      Becroft has enabled child molestation and child endangerment in the name of PC.
      CYFS has endeavoured to move children out of harm’s way.

      Becroft has taken a mighty dump on the professionals who make anguished decisions about children in a threatening situation.
      No-one has the full facts. People cannot see the future.
      They can use the past and present as the framework from which to make the relevant decisions.

      Becroft is similar to the pedo enablers in that he is deliberately putting children in harm’s way.
      This makes him cunt of the week. (Ed. do we need a vote for cnut of the week?)

      People (are they?) that harm kids should be beaten hard.
      To paraphrase Ardoom: beaten early and beaten hard.

    He said it was a relief that only a couple of the dozen staff would lose their jobs outright. Management found roles for five workers in other parts of the company, and most of the rest opted to retire.

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/entertainment/2020/06/jeffery-epstein-us-requests-uk-make-prince-andrew-available-for-questioning-reports.html

    According to The Sun, a frustrated US Department of Justice has now filed a formal ”Mutual Legal Assistance” (MLA) request to the UK’s Home Office, bypassing Buckingham Palace.

    If such a request was approved, the FBI could ask that the prince be compelled to go to a UK court to give evidence under oath as a witness.

    “The Department of Justice has formally told the UK the Duke of York is now caught up in a criminal probe for the first time,” reports The Sun.

    “It means Andrew, who ‘categorically denies’ any wrongdoing, could now be forced to appear in a UK court as a witness within months.

    “The move also piles pressure on the Duke to give evidence – and on the UK government to assist.”

    God went to the Arabs and said,
    ‘I have Commandments for you that will make your lives better.’
    The Arabs asked, ‘What are Commandments?’
    And the Lord said, ‘They are rules for living.’
    ‘Can you give us an example?’
    ‘Thou shall not kill.’
    ‘Not kill? We’re not interested..’

    So He went to the Blacks and said, ‘I have Commandments.’
    The Blacks wanted an example, and the Lord said,
    ‘Honour thy Father and Mother.’
    ‘Father? We don’t know who our fathers are.
    We’re not interested.’

    Then He went to the Mexicans and said,
    ‘I have Commandments.’
    The Mexicans also wanted an example, and the Lord said ‘Thou shall not steal.’
    ‘Not steal? We’re not interested.’

    Then He went to the French and said, ‘I have Commandments.’
    The French too wanted an example and the Lord said, ‘Thou shall not commit adultery.’
    ‘Sacre bleu!!! Not commit adultery? We’re not interested.’

    Finally, He went to the Jews and said, ‘I have Commandments..’
    ‘Commandments?’ They said, ‘How much are they?’
    ‘They’re free.’

  20. Latest from Hobsons Pledge. (Excuse the length )

    “Protests push separatist narrative.
    Protests in New Zealand last weekend at the killing in the United States of a black man by police show “a rising tide of resentment, principally from young Maori conditioned into believing they are victims of white supremacy”.
    Such was the comment of former ACT MP Muriel Newman in her column on May 31 titled A Covid Farce. See https://www.nzcpr.com/a-covid-farce/#more-32292

    While some were protesting about the killing of Minneapolis man George Floyd, perhaps most were protesting other causes, Newman wrote.
    “There were vigils for victims of racial injustice, condemnations of institutional racism, protests against police violence, and opposition to the arming of police – the so-called ‘militarisation’ of the New Zealand police force”, she wrote.
    Such issues fit the narrative of Maori separatists, whose agenda has inexplicably been embedded within the state sector and our educational institutions, she wrote.

    “As a result, while every adverse statistic is now blamed on colonial oppression and institutional racism, the real reasons for Maori deprivation, namely poor education, single parenthood, and intergenerational welfare dependency, rarely ever get a mention,” Newman wrote.

    More DHBs may favour Maori, Pacific patients
    Half the country’s district health boards could consider or have committed to prioritising Maori and Pacific patients for some elective surgeries, according to the Weekend Herald.

    Capital and Coast and Hutt Valley DHBs – covering the Wellington region – recently confirmed Māori and Pacific patients would be prioritised for surgeries.

    Eight others are considering or have left the door open to similar changes, permanently or while surgery backlogs are cleared after Covid-19 restrictions. They are: Northland, Nelson Marlborough, Taranaki, Wairarapa, Southern, Bay of Plenty, MidCentral and Auckland.

    Counties Manukau, Waitemata, Hawke’s Bay and Tairawhiti boards didn’t directly answer when asked if they are or might consider such changes, or said it was too early to comment.

    Dr David Tipene-Leach, who is chair of Te Ora Maori Medical Practitioners Association, and Dr Rawiri Jansen, who is the co-leader of Te Ropu Whakakaupapa Uruta, a national Maori pandemic group, started this particular ball rolling a month ago.

    Meanwhile, theNew Zealand Taxpayers’ Union lodged a formal complain to Race Relations Commissioner Meng Foon about the Capital and Coast District Health Board’s decision to move Maori and Pacific patients to the front of their elective surgery queues.

    Taxpayers’ Union spokesman Jordan Williams said “taxpayer-funded health resources should be allocated solely on clinical need in all instances, not racial preference”..

    Bill to widen indoctrination of immigrants
    Green Party MP Jan Logie has drafted a private member’s bill to force Maori sovereignty propaganda onto all new citizens.

    Although her Citizenship (Acknowledgement of Te Tiriti o Waitangi) Amendment Bill has not been drawn from the ballot and so is not presently being considered by Parliament, it shows the divisive intent of the Green Party, since members’ bills can only be submitted with the approval of the whole party.

    Logie’s bill would amend the Citizenship Act 1977 so that after swearing the oath of allegiance to the Queen, new New Zealanders would be informed: “In becoming new citizens of New Zealand, you are joining a nation whose foundation is a Treaty between the indigenous tangata whenua (people of the land) and the Crown. This Treaty, Te Tiriti o Waitangi, offers citizens the opportunity to participate in the ongoing journey towards honourable relationships that are founded on the articles of Te Tiriti agreed to in 1840”.

    They would then be given the details of local tribes, to no doubt facilitate their on-going “education”.

    Auckland Regional Migrant Services has for years been marketing Treaty myths to new migrants via workshops. See https://breakingviewsnz.blogspot.com/2015/05/mike-butler-marketing-treaty-myths-to.html Logie’s bill would make such re-education mandatory.

    Ratepayers ponder beach plan for Taupo tribe
    The Waikato Regional Council is proposing to transfer monitoring of summer bathing beaches, regional rivers, rainfall and groundwater quality within the Lake Taupo catchment to the Tuwharetoa Maori Trust Board of Taupo.

    Section 33 of the Resource Management Act enables a local authority to transfer any one or more of its functions, powers or duties under the act to another public authority, except for the power of transfer itself.

    Councillors voted unanimously in favour of releasing the statement of proposal for public feedback.

    Under a 2018 Treaty settlement that gave the tribe $27.8 million (on top of a share of $149 million of forest land and $223 million of forestry rentals), Tuwharetoa was given an advantage in local administration by being granted the right to appoint four members to the Waikato Regional Council and two to the Taupo District Council.

    An earlier deal gave ownership of the bed of Lake Taupo to the tribe.

    Is the Tuwharetoa Maori Trust Board actually a public entity as required by Section 33 of the RMA, and does it actually qualify to take over council functions? The board offers no shares to the public. Neither is there a public vote on the trust board’s agenda.

    Iwi beach patrols look like roadblocks revisited. Now is the time for people in the area to tell the Waikato Regional Council that council functions should stay with the council.

    ‘New Zealand’ preferred to ‘Aotearoa’
    A poll doing the rounds of social media asks whether the name “Aotearoa” should be officially recognised with “New Zealand”, and whether the addition of “Aotearoa” to “New Zealand” officially would further unite our country. The vote so far favours the name “New Zealand” Please have your say by going to

    Coastal claim knock-back appeal
    Former Maori Council co-chair Maanu Paul had his “coastal claim for all Maori” knocked back so he is seeking a hearing with the Maori Appellate Court, according to documents filed with the High Court on June 4. Extensive legal funding to Maori for unlimited Maori claims means nearly unlimited access to courts by Maori but not for anyone else.

    Our petition which asks Parliament to amend the Marine and Coastal Area (Takutai Moana) Act 2011 to restore public ownership of the coastal area, put all claims through the High Court, and repeal customary marine title, while affirming customary rights has picked up 22,984 signatures. We need your support. The petition may be signed at https://www.change.org/beaches4all Even if you have signed, you may follow the link to ask your social media friends to sign.

    Iwi roadblocks ‘ended’
    Iwi roadblocks ended on May 14, 2020, according to an email from the Independent Police Conduct Authority on June 3 based on advice from police. Perhaps the police did not include the Cape Reinga roadblock as an iwi roadblock because Northland MP Matt King was refused access there on May 19. Our petition gathered 6642 signatures. Many thanks to all who signed. We were surprised at the degree of official resistance against doing anything to upset the vigilantes operating the roadblocks.

    Jennifer Morgan, the executive director of Greenpeace International, said the world should use the current crisis to push “the reset button,” similar to what occurred after World War II, when Morgan says, “We set up a new world order.”

    Will the government push it out to just after the September election so that the patient doesn’t wake up before the end of the surgery?

    If they do, the NZ voter will deserve their punishment if they choose “Amazeballs” over fiscal responsibility.

  28. How sad for the families losing a mum and lovely kiwi kids.

    Nanny Bev, Luka and JJ: The victims of the Raetihi farming tragedy
    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/121753969/nanny-bev-luka-and-jj-the-victims-of-the-raetihi-farming-tragedy

    Two families have been torn apart by the deaths of a Raetihi grandmother and two of her grandsons in a horror accident on the family farm.

    Bev Hiscox, 65, and her two grandchildren, Luka and JJ Sirett, aged 10 and 5, died when the off-road farm vehicle they were travelling in – known as a side-by-side – plunged into a dam on the Hiscox family farm on Sunday morning.

    Nanny Bev, considered the family matriarch, was lauded for her talents in the garden, while Luka and JJ were the “closest of brothers”.

    The trio was travelling on the side-by-side, along with grandfather Mike Hiscox, known as Poppa, when it plunged into a dam, quickly becoming submerged in water.

    Amidst the chaos, Mike was able to free himself and raise the alarm.

      There’s not a lot to free yourself from in a side by side. They may have some sort of fabric door to keep out the elements but that’s about it. The only thing that could prevent a quick bail out are the mandated seat belts. The same seat belts which all the mad, mostly female, safety freaks who’ve never set foot on a farm or done a day’s real work in their lives tell us must be worn.

    • I wonder how familiar the vehicle driver was with the terrain and the pond. We are told that it was “the family farm” but I can’t tell if the grandparents had lived on the farm before or after the pond was built. It could be that they had not driven on the farm for some time and were unfamiliar with the terrain and the pond.

      Was the driver familiar with the vehicle?

      How does a vehicle end up in a pond in the first place?
      – Medical episode?
      – Misjudgement of a corner?
      – Unexpected land subsidence?

      Did the vehicle roll? What was the pattern of the skid marks? The police will know all of this, and it will be a matter for the coroner to sort out.
      Since the bodies were still in the vehicle, it looks like they were restrained from floating out of their seats by the cannopy or seat belts.

  38. David Seymour is a much better opposition than Muller!

    David Seymour accuses Jacinda Ardern of ‘attempting to rewrite history’ over COVID-19 response
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/06/david-seymour-accuses-jacinda-ardern-of-attempting-to-rewrite-history-over-covid-19-response.html

    But ACT leader David Seymour said the Government did not act soon enough, and that despite a call to close the border in February, it “dithered and then had to implement one of the most severe lockdowns in the world”.

    The Government closed the border to everyone but New Zealanders 20 days after the first case of COVID-19, but Seymour argued it should have happened sooner as we were given “advance warning” as the 60th country to get a case.

    “New Zealanders have made significant sacrifices, not least the 37,500 people who have lost their jobs,” he said. “We face the real risk of mistaking good luck for good management and making more bad decisions without the good luck.”

    Seymour criticised the Prime Minister for telling New Zealanders to expect more cases of COVID-19 in the future. He said the Government should have been contemplating how to live in a post-COVID-19 world rather than focusing on achieving “one metric”.

    Seymour is calling for a Royal Commission of Inquiry into the Government’s response, to assess if the border was closed soon enough, and if the Government “appropriately balanced COVID-19 elimination with other goals”.

    The Prime Minister said she is proud of her Government’s response, highlighting how the first economic financial package – which included the wage subsidy scheme – was in place 26 days after the first New Zealand case.

  39. ‘New wave’ of Holidays Act headaches hits SMEs

    Small business owners could be the latest victims of ongoing problems with the Holidays Act, with thousands potentially owed to employees.

    In an email sent to clients on Friday, accounting software provider MYOB said issues had been identified with its IMS Payroll product which could affect some calculations, including leave rates and entitlements.

    In 2018, a Government review of the act was announced after employers including McDonald’s, cinemas, security firms, and even the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment were caught out by its complexities.

    However, Jenkins said progress was slow and business owners would continue to run into similar issues until the act was fixed.

    “I’m doing back to back audits every day, I’ve got a team of people doing it and people contacting me every day,” he said.

    “We’ve been waiting for a report that went to [Workplace Relations Minister Iain Lees-Galloway] in October last year, and that was only a report talking about the way forward, it’s not talking about the mess that’s still carrying on.”
