  1. I Wonder if all these woke lefty radicals that are calling for colonial statues to be removed because of the cruelty those people administered to Maori understand how many paintings,photos,carvings,and statues of cannibilistic murdering raping slave and land taking Maori kings will also have to come down and be thrown into the river ? NO.

  2. Who rules the streets?

    Mourning Mongrel Mob members take over Hamilton street.
    Meanwhile, Detective Inspector Graham Pitkethley said he was aware that a number of recent incidents involving gang members had caused concern to the community.
    “Waikato Police would like to reassure the community that Police have responded to these incidents as a priority and there is a heightened response in place.”

    At the street on Wednesday patched gang members and cars were visibly crowding the street, with cars blocking the road and preventing residents from entering.
    Multiple police cars were seen in surrounding areas as gang members loitered in the streets.

    “It seems absolutely crazy [that] they can take control of an entire street and it can be OK, we are all so scared.

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/waikato-times/news/121779458/mourning-mongrel-mob-members-take-over-hamilton-street

    The police would be better saying nothing than repeating bland mindless propaganda that simply reinforces thier inability to control the the gangs behavoir and the intimidation that goes with it.

    • Anarchy? Yep sounds like it to me and in all of western society at the moment. I am amazed that in New Zealand there is no law and order around this. The mongrel mob tangi is yet another example of the lawlessness on New Zealand streets with police doing nothing at all. Police may as well be defunded at this rate, as they seem to just stand around, and do nothing, its a wonder they didn’t take the knee, or play the guitar and join the sing along. Isn’t it interesting how that school was impacted, but mob rules and who cares about kids and parents trying to collect them from school when a major mob event is taking place? I live in fear for this country, its well and truely fuc..d .

        • The Guardian. Huh. Marx himself would blush.
          Written by Julia Amua Whaipooti
          Clearly a non-thinking, disaffected moaning Minnie.

          Sweetie pie is having a bad hair day..or year… or life
          Quote … In Aotearoa New Zealand, we are 200 years into our colonial history, and the way in which colonisation functions here is also rooted in white supremacy…

          Yeah OK.
          Prior to the white supremacists, Maori life was subsistence level with limited food resource, SLAVERY, constant wars, cold, limited ability to get shelter or clothing -flax was the ubiquitous substitute, no musical instruments whatsoever, no written language, no legal structure, no The warehouse, no KFC, and so on
          Does she really want that back?
          Stupid tart.

          The Australian aboriginals were more advanced with their musical wind instrument – the didgeridoo; the aerodynamically shaped boomerang.
          The AU Aborigines were much more in tune with their natural environment having survived 60,000 years.
          The Maori came to NZ, plundered the easy resources, burnt off half the vegetation to chase out flightless birds for a one off feed, and lost the ability to sail away when the world got colder.
          Unlike the people of Greenland.

          ‘Julia Amua Whaipooti is a justice advocate and an Ngāti Porou woman from Aotearoa New Zealand.’
          The question is, how much white supremacy does she have coursing through her veins?
          She better check THAT white privilege.
          You hear me, girl !!

      • When they tell a Carterton shop owner off for defending his own property from criminals that the low energy cops driving around in their rainbow cars are too useless to address then they can piss off …right now.

        However the line was already crossed 6 months ago when the cops were looking onto prosecuting the brave helicopter pilots who when onto an active volcano and saved lives. Multiple lives.
        True heroes.
        Something cops are not.

        The cops in NZ don’t need to ‘take a knee’
        They are on their knees already.
        Waiting for someone else to do their job…then harassing the person who does the job they are too lazy and too political to do.
        Defund. Today.

  4. Apparently his statistics and studies has been quoted many times.

    The referees found that the article contains numerous errors in the reporting or analyses of the data. None of them could replicate Dr. Stewart’s analyses, and they further expressed concern that Dr. Stewart was also unable to replicate his analyses. Consequently, the referees questioned the validity of the results reported in the article. It is not possible, in our view, to reach a conclusion as to whether misconduct occurred.
    https://retractionwatch.com/2020/06/09/criminology-researcher-to-lose-sixth-paper/
    Misconduct? but Dr. will most likely still be tenured and sinecured.

    A very interesting site if one “home pages” it and see what other systems it is following and also noting other retractions.

  5. When one figures what horse some of the “leaders” & “parties” back, and then the wide divide between them and their squawking base.
    Elections are at the end of the year, a clean sweep may be in the offing.

  6. ‘Bunch of baboons’: Māori Council boss Matthew Tukaki fires up at MPs over iwi checkpoints
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/06/bunch-of-baboons-m-ori-council-boss-matthew-tutaki-fires-up-at-mps-over-iwi-checkpoints.html

    “I’d remind everybody on this committee that we did it because of what happened in 1918,” Tukaki said, a reference to the Spanish Flu that claimed at least 2160 Māori lives.

    ‘Not appropriate’: Nash addresses roadblocks being set up by ‘ratbags and renegades’

    “We did it in partnership with local government and also the police. It was a huge success when you look at the number of Māori who actually contracted COVID-19 and certainly the death rate was very minimal,” he said.

    “If we’ve got dog-whistling from our leaders down there in Wellington carrying on like a bunch of baboons, questioning the legitimacy of them, that does nothing to help the situation in those communities.”

  7. Although flights to Japan will begin in June, only Japanese passport holders may enter the country, and must isolate themselves for 2 weeks, according to the Japanese Consulate here in Auckland. I assume once they return to NZ a further 2 weeks in isolation will be required (unless you are a BLM protester… // ).
    Normalisation is a fair way off.

      • Ah, Japanese as the “endangered species.” It’s a very real social issue in Japan.
        Mind you, in almost all developed nations the birthrate is at the sub 2.1-children-per -woman for the maintenance of the population.
        Take at a look at this map (2017 data). Even the countries shown in green are barely marking time.
        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_sovereign_states_and_dependent_territories_by_birth_rate#/media/File:Countries_by_Birth_Rate_in_2017.svg

        Educate your citizens (especially your women) and your birthrate falls.
        The solution: bring the Africans and Middle Eastern people to the Far East and West! That will solve the problem! (Not.)

        I hate to rag on the Koreans (but it’s what we do in Japan, you know… (said with a fake NY accent))
        The poor South Korean kids really have it tough. They have their 3-Po (Sampo) Generation. Sampo Generation refers to a generation of youth that has given up three things: dating, marriage and childbirth.
        Are we seeing a similar Millenial or Generation X/Y/Z thing here? “I can’t afford to have children. I can’t afford a house!”

        I have always maintained that houses are for nesting; not investing.

        Our nations lost something vital in the years when a working man could no longer afford the mortgage on a roof over his family of his wife and 3 children. How do we get that situation of affordable housing back?
        What must we change? What must we sacrifice? (It will be worth it.)

        • ……”What must we change? What must we sacrifice?”……

          Our standard of living. In NZ the rot noticeably set in about the mid 70s when countless women joined the workforce so they could afford to watch Coronation Street in colour on their new TVs.

          The new productivity didn’t extend to house building. Houses increased in price to match the new level of household income.

          This is when Kiwis became mice on an exercise wheel.

            * Asuming that your basic needs are met.

            Back in Japan in the 90s (and today to a lesser extent) the middle class were often temporally and spatially in poverty. They had the money, but no time and no space.

              # I can recall when I was 7yo (1956) my elder brother & myself being allowed to stay up until 9pm on Saturdays. The family gathered around the valve radio set & listened to The Navy Lark, Dad & Dave & Much-Binding-in-the-Marsh.

              We were lower middle class. The old man was an assistant manager of a rural supplies firm.

              # My daughters & younger son were deprived beyond belief by being “the only children in NZ without colour TV*” in 1982 because their miserable parents wouldn’t buy anything on HP. (they’d spent the money shoeing the little princesses’ horses)
              * I still doubt the survey methods. 🙂

              I was a truck driver & mum worked as a clerk. Definitely working class.

              # My grandchildren have each had personal TVs in their (separate) rooms from early childhood. Family lounges have contained massive TVs, DVDs, stereo systems & naturally their own cellphones then smartphones, laptops whatever.

              I hesitate to class them in a demographic.

              Point is that each generation have been privileged within their own times. Yesterday’s decadence is today’s minimum standard.

          • Yes, as costs rose due to the expectation of 2 wages. Having said that, house prices rose far faster than inflation and wage growth. This happens when you import hundreds of thousands of immigrants and increase base costs such as tax and wage costs. You can’t increase consumption without infrastructure and NZ has been living the illusion for 2p+ years that you can.

  8. NZ has no leaders

    I so hope you are right Simpleton. The real problem is we do not have anyone (like Trump or Farage or Wilders or Le Pen or Salvini) who people can identify with. They need to be charismatic, outspoken, eloquent, quick on their feet debating, fearless, patriotic and a brawler.

    Todd Muller – nope he’s cowed and weak and he’s only been in the job for a few weeks.
    David Seymour – too much of a little weasely guy. And he’s a globalist at heart (UN Migration Pact supporter)
    New Conservatives – sorry but neither Leighton or Elliot has enough fire in their belly

    The only person with any fighting-Irish spirit to offer is Judith Collins – but the current National party HQ are too fucking stupid, the current caucus is too left wing to want her. The membership are too cucked to kick up a stink.

    We get the leaders we deserve.

    Currently, hard at it researching how to escape NZ with as much of my hard-earned capital as possible, before the Iron Curtain of totalitarianism descends and ruins everything that is beautiful about NZ.

    The problem with socialists is that they always run out of other peoples’ money.

    • I have finally come around to thinking like you. I always thought Judith Collins would turn people off and cost the National party if she was leader. I now believe she will be an excellent leader. I think she is playing the long game, ie she is positioned to be made leader if National loses the election and Muller is sacked.

        • YES, Bridges is a dribble, an incoherent fuckwit who destroyed any hope of National winning the next election.

          Muller, on the other hand, is a very articulate fuckwit who, with his left leaning greenie bias and lack of any spine, is set to further ensure that National will stay on their knees for the foreseeable future – way past the next election.

          BIG difference, Tarquin.

          • I don’t know Dave, up until the wuflu issue Bridges and National were polling quite well and I believe he did a good job of running that committee during lockdown. I’ve never been a great fan of his but I don’t despise him and see no value in replacing him with someone that looks and sounds like my insurance broker. Change for changes sake rarely succeeds – they should have given Collins a go.

      • It’s depressing isn’t it – that they’ll wait until they’ve allowed NZ to be destroyed – before they allow the only person who could’ve saved it to have a go.

        Before DPF lost his mind and wanted to dox all his commenters (causing our dear Ed to create this new free speech platform) I ran this straw poll on KB on the day of the National leadership election in 2018.

        On one of the highest responded to comments on KB ever (80 up or down ticks) the vote was 67 for Judith vs 13 in favour of anyone else. That seemed to be a fairly strong indication of who the silent majority wanted!

        Maybe a miracle will happen and I’ll be wrong, but it looks like a dead set cert that I’m going to be right about the path National took leading to them losing the 2020 election.

        Does anything show more clearly how National are always 180 degrees out of step in reading the mood of their constituency?

She is quick on her feet, has great answers and yes she has not always delivered what I would have wished, but then no one would have, for goodness sake she is unbelievably so much better than the rest. Listening to her speak, she represents so many of us desperate for a change in government. Unfortunately the wankers at Nats head office don’t think so but perhaps one day they might come to their senses. The Todd Muller and Nike Kaye combination is a quick trip to nowhere, Simon and Paula were so much better in every way than these two will ever be. What the hell were the caucus trying to prove? That they are more woke than even Jacinda? FFS

  9. National promises no ‘dirty politics’ as Shane Jones looks forward to ‘vigorous’ Northland seat contest

    National MPs have denied allegations the party is holding a “dirty politics” campaign in Northland, where NZ First’s Shane Jones is hoping to take the seat this election.

    Mr Jones has accused the party of planning a “dirty politics” campaign to keep the seat, but today says Mr King has given his word they’ll stay clean.

    “I bumped into Matt King the other day where he said to me, I give you my word, there’s no dirty tricks campaign,” Mr Jones told TVNZ 1’s Breakfast today.

    “My remarks really related to what’s happening with a small piece of legislation I’m shepherding through Parliament, where the foreign owners of the forestry sector have been selling and pedalling their mistruths to some of the backbenchers in the National Party.

    “So I put down fair warning, I’m a pugilist from the bible, do unto others as they’ll do unto you.”

  10. This article raises some interesting points.

    The government has suddenly stopped harassing law-abiding citizens over COVID-19 unconstitutional “laws,” because they have bigger problems to worry about now.
    The U.S. government fears the George Floyd protestors, but they do not fear COVID-19 peaceful protestors.
    But isn’t burning police stations, looting, and rioting un-American? all the criminality involved with the George Floyd protesters is certainly not justified, but is it really un-American?
    Can peaceful protests achieve the same results as violent protests? ….

    ….. When the George Floyd protestor smoke settles, the government will be back to usurp the Constitution and impose their dictatorial edicts upon law-abiding Americans. …..
    https://newswithviews.com/law-abiding-americans-have-much-to-learn-from-the-george-floyd-police-brutality-protestors/

    There are some parallels in NZ, though in some parts we are much more mellow, for now.

    Where is a principled leader, who knows his history, like Churchill, then some one like Trump that can desecrate the academia, & media’s narrative, to be able to cut through with a perspective, so that many can understand the choices.

    Edit:- for DP. and also note the concern for some one to lead, or team/party that has it all together.
    I am a Churchill fan, and note how long it took for Churchill, the wildeness years, to gain ascendancy, and only just made it to PM, when the rest of cabinet wanted to surrender.
    The end of his speech, 1938 on the Munich Agreement.

    And do not suppose that this is the end.
    This is only the beginning of the reckoning.
    This is only the first sip, the first foretaste of a bitter cup which will be proffered to us year by year unless by a supreme recovery of moral health and martial vigour, we arise again and take our stand for freedom as in the olden time.

    A long read, but shows his grasp on the politics of the 1930’s.

  11. I had an interesting talk with Tim Macindoe yesterday. I stated my view about a number of issues and National’s way way of rolling Simon. There were three other people there. All three of them were singing the praises of David Seymour. To his credit he took on board what we all had to say. I hope some on YSB in the Waikato will come to hear Simon O’Connor speak. Tim always gives a fair time for questions. There good food at the Cafe Agora so some might like to stay for lunch.

    Our guest speaker is Simon O’Connor, MP for Tamaki. Simon is the National Party Spokesperson for Customs, Associate Spokesperson for Housing and Urban Development (Social Housing) and Associate Spokesperson for Social Development.
    WHEN: Friday 12th June, 2020
    WHERE: Cafe Agora, Kent Street, Frankton
    TIME: 10.15am to 11.30am
    A hot drink & muffin are available for $5 (this includes a donation to the Cafe’s charity funding pool).

          1) When are the Nats going to wake up to the seismic shift in politics that has happened since 2016? Pride of nation, revulsion at identity politics and massive antipathy to the MSM are the three core drivers of the blooming conservatism in the UK, the US, France, Holland, Germany, Italy – why are the Nats in denial about these obvious facts

          2) The elevation of Todd Muller and Nikki Kaye has been an absolute disaster. Why is the most obvious and leaderful candidate in the caucus frozen out – is it sexism??

          3) Don’t New Zealanders need a choice, why are National emulating Labour on the vast majority of important issues?

    Jacinda Ardern will attend the June 14 ‘Black Lives Matter’ protest in Auckland.
    She will be leading the throng wearing a BLM shirt and throwing her patented Jesus Christ poses and frowny faces for the cameras.
    She will then give an ‘amazeballs’ speech about Racism.
    The Left Wing Media will elevate her to Messiah status for this and ANYONE who subsequently dares to criticise either her or her Government right up to Election day will be labelled ‘Racists’ and ‘White Supremacists’….

          The former have almost nothing to lose, and gain “virtue” by “sticking it to the oppressor” (or at least that’s what they’ve been told). Let’s riot and loot! Their towns are controlled by pro-big-government Democrats.
          The latter, who are carving out a life for themselves, have everything to lose in conflicts with the authorities. These men are not the problem.
          American welfare and “kindness” has created many urban “yoof” who have sense of resentment and want to smash stuff up. Are we creating similar monsters here in New Zealand by pandering to them and giving them what they want?

    • A simplified history of the 2nd Soviet system that was formed in Hungary, even if it is a wikipedia concept, which I have abbreviated.

      …. Hungarian Soviet Republic was president Sándor Garbai, the de facto power was in the hands of foreign minister Béla Kun, who maintained direct contact with Lenin via radiotelegraph. It was Lenin who gave the direct orders and advice to Béla Kun via constant radio communication with the Kremlin….
      ……. the literal name was “Republic of Councils in Hungary” to avoid any strong ethnic connotation with Hungarian people. …..
      ……. The party recruited members while propagating its ideas, radicalising many members of the Social Democratic Party of Hungary in the process.
      By February 1919, the party numbered 30,000 to 40,000 members, including many unemployed ex-soldiers, young intellectuals and ethnic minorities …….
      …. Its supporters began to stage aggressive demonstrations against the media and against the Social Democratic Party. …….

      …… crucial incident, a demonstration turned violent ….. The arrests were particularly violent, with police officers openly beating the communists.
      This resulted in a wave of public sympathy for the party among the masses of Budapester proletariat. ……….
      …. only Social Democrats could form a new government, as they were the party with the highest public support in the largest cities and especially in Budapest.
      In order to form a governing coalition, Social Democrats started secret negotiations with the Communist leaders. ….

      …Lenin gave an order to Béla Kun that Social Democrats must be removed from power, so that Hungary could be transformed into a true communist state ruled by a “dictatorship of the proletariat”. ….
      ……….. Accordingly, the Communists started to purge the Social Democrats from the government on the next day ….

      “Communist Policies”
      ………… The Communists remained bitterly unpopular in the Hungarian countryside, where the authority of that government was often nonexistent.
      The communist party and communist policies only had real popular support among the proletarian masses of large industrial centers – especially in Budapest – where the working class represented a high proportion of the inhabitants.

      The Hungarian government was thus left on its own, and a Red Guard was established under the command of Mátyás Rákosi.

      Béla Kun, de facto leader of the Soviet Republic in Hungary
      In addition, a group of 200 armed men – known as the Lenin Boys – formed a mobile detachment under the leadership of József Cserny.
      This detachment was deployed at various locations around the country where counter-revolutionary movements were suspected to operate.
      The Lenin Boys, as well as other similar groups and agitators, killed and terrorised many people (e.g. armed with hand grenades and using their rifles’ butts they disbanded religious ceremonies).
      They executed victims without trial.
      This caused a number of conflicts with the local population, some of which turned violent.

      The situation of the Hungarian Communists began to deteriorate in the capital city Budapest after a failed coup by the Social Democrats on 24 June, the newly composed Communist government of Sándor Garbai resorted to large-scale reprisals.
      Revolutionary tribunals ordered executions of people who were suspected of having been involved in the attempted coup.
      This became known as the “Red Terror”, and greatly reduced domestic support for the government even among the working classes of the highly industrialized suburb districts and metropolitan area of Budapest.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hungarian_Soviet_Republic
      Fortunately a short time, 21 March to 1 August 1919, but blood both ways to get it sorted as then a “white terror” occurred.

      Parallels & rhymes abound, so one should look & reflect on the lessons from history.

  17. Zero tolerance on gangs out for National. How can gang members avoid the lifestyle is their question instead.

    National backtracks on ‘Strike Force Raptor’ police unit plans
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/06/national-backtracks-on-strike-force-raptor-police-unit-plans.html

    National is distancing itself from its controversial Strike Force Raptor proposal, saying it would not direct the police to set up such a unit if elected.

    The Opposition party made headlines in November when it proposed an elite police squad be formed to target and harass gang members, taking a zero tolerance approach to all offences, no matter how minor.

    The party would also take a broader “social investment” approach to help prevent people from turning to crime in the first place, Hudson said.

    National had intended to release a specific “Gang Action Plan” before the election, but that now looks likely to be rolled into a broader suite of justice policies.

    “But it’s also looking at how can we help New Zealanders avoid that lifestyle in the first place. And how can we help those who want to exit it?”

    “Covid-19 has had a significant financial impact on our business, including reduced roaming and retail revenues, the providing of additional data to customers on unlimited plans for no extra revenue, and the increased risk of bad debt.

    “This is coupled with changing customer habits such as sustained increases in phone and data use and the increased need for online customer support, meaning we need to both significantly reduce our costs and adapt to the acceleration of digital adoption,” the spokesperson said in a statement.

  19. So our food supply is now being affected by the climate change scam. Tomato supply over winter affected by heating of glasshouses carbon charges.

    High carbon charges could lead to winter tomato shortage in South Island
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/rural/2020/06/high-carbon-charges-could-lead-to-winter-tomato-shortage-in-south-island.html

    Much of the South Island’s supply is grown in glasshouses heated by coal-fired burners, while gas-fired burners, diesel units or geothermal power is used mainly by North Island growers.

    Some South Island growers said they faced oblivion through record-high carbon charges – the Government’s main tool for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

    Carbon unit prices reached an historic $30 a tonne this week, in a market response to Government changes in the pricing.

  20. A Coronavirus Vaccine Project Takes a Page From Gene Therapy

    Disease enhancement has become a particular concern because all the vaccine projects are trying to move so much faster than usual that there is a fear the problem could go undetected, Dr. Freeman said. It is challenging to design studies to find it, particularly with a new disease that is not well understood.

    The two scientists said the many research groups forging ahead with vaccine projects were racing not against one another, but against the coronavirus.

    “We need multiple shots at goal,” Dr. Vandenberghe said. “The level of unknowns of what we have to try to achieve here is too high, and the level of urgency is equally high.”

    New Gene-Therapy Treatments Will Carry Whopping Price Tags

    The treatment, Kymriah, made by Novartis, is spectacularly effective against a rare form of leukemia, bringing remissions when all conventional options have failed. It will cost $475,000.

    With gene therapy, scientists seek to treat or prevent disease by modifying cellular DNA. Many such treatments are in the wings: There are 34 in the final stages of testing necessary for F.D.A. approval, and another 470 in initial clinical trials, according to the Alliance for Regenerative Medicine, an advocacy group.

    • A part of the whole video I posted above at 9:38 am.
      https://ysb.co.nz/have-your-say-422/#comment-78529

      I find it intriguing to read the comments on wg’s clip.
      “Sometimes people use “respect” to mean “treating someone like a person”
      and sometimes they use “respect” to mean “treating someone like an authority”
      and sometimes people who are used to being treated like an authority say “if you won’t respect me I won’t respect you”
      and they mean “if you won’t treat me like an authority I won’t treat you like a person”
      and they think they’re being fair but they aren’t, and it’s not okay.”

      And others saying in essence, respect is a 2 way street.

      Another point that I did not pick up on in my earlier morning post, out of the union people pointing fingers at city leaders, legislators, judiciary etc… not one of them mentioned anything about the Democrat Party, which has been running those cities & states, often for many decades.

      • There are two meanings for respect:

        1) a feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements.

        2) due regard for the feelings, wishes, or rights of others.

        I agree with the first as it’s an earned distinction. The second , more popular meaning of the word is touchy, feely bullshit but is in vogue.
