  1. The filthy Bastards 3 ,Mallard,Hipkins, and the maggot Peters got together and devised a plan to take the heat off their F—K up by harpooning Bishop for doing exactly what he’s in parliament for ,helping the people of his country.
    If our media fall for it it will be a disgrace.
    The C–T Mallard set the trap when he said “its a very serious accusation” when the pimple faced chippy asked the question of the feckless minister of health Clark,they are desperate to rescue the fast disappearing facade that is JACINDA ARDERN because that’s all they have.

    • Fortunately Rev, it only served to show it for what it was; a desperate attempt to deflect. Bishop would never have lobbied for the pair, if he thought Labour was going to fuck it up so badly.

      ‘If our media fall for it it will be a disgrace.’

      Let me be clear 🙂
      They don’t work for YOU
      Don’t be so selfish
      They work for Liebour

      When your whole nation-wide media platform is worth One Dollar (Stuffed) then a 50 Million Dollar bribe looks very appealing.

      To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize

  2. TV3 are reporting that Trump is ” looking for other supreme court judges” to pass his dreamers bill, and the same report stated that Trump wrongly said that Great Britain has nuclear weapons ,FFS children could organise a better more honest breakfast show.

    • Most of W.W. media has jumped over the Edge of Reason.

      RT used to be much better 2 years go.
      It has been slipping badly in 6 month steps.
      Now it is reporting this nonsense as well .

      Post truth world.
      You can see this with the BLM and the reporting on the cop shootings
      They don’t even pretend to ‘report’ truth any more.
      The irony is they are validating Trump’s claims of Fake News ..every day.

  3. Love the picture of the muppets, just so applicable.

    The bad news is mounting up against the Mad Queen and her band of incompetents. Calls to sack ‘Stupid Boy’ Clark are growing.

    Morning Briefing June 19: Confusion reigns as border blunders rumble on
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/content/tvnz/onenews/story/2020/06/19/morning-briefing-june-19-confusion-reigns-as-border-blunders-ru.html

    The Prime Minister’s office addressed confusion last night after Jacinda Ardern appointed Air Commodore Digby Webb to take over the country’s isolation and quarantine processes.

    It’s been revealed the senior Defence Force official had already been heading border controls for some weeks, including when the decision was made to allow two women to leave isolation early.

    However, the Prime Minister’s office says Air Commodore Webb’s previous role didn’t include responsibility for any health aspects and he didn’t oversee any previous compassionate exemptions.

    Border blunder rumbles on…

    Big drop in GDP…

    NZTA ruling upsets locals…

  5. Every day in every way I despise the COL more and more. It is at the stage that I did not actually believe they could stuff things up anymore than they already had. Yet again they manage to do that. Willie Jackson is something else. I have to wonder, is he really that stupid? Never again will I doubt their ability to f**k things up more and more. I am wondering if they too do not wish to win the election, I am sure National do not want to win, now I am thinking Liebor have no wish to win either.

    • Lizziep, In all seriousness Jackson shouldn’t be there ,a wide range of different people are necessary in government but surely the ability to spout ” you’s people”and “our people” isn’t anywhere near enough to qualify to pass law on the rest of us especially when Jackson is amongst the most divisive people in public office and thats saying something.

  6. Labour are panicking. People who panic don’t think straight and make mistakes and in Labour’s case they are making huge stuff ups, and like little kids who have been caught with their hands in the cookie jar, they are all pointing the finger at each other. They want to blame others for their stupidity. A trainwreck in the making. Who will survive?

    • More like self destruct mode. Never been under any real pressure, no business experience, no ideas on how to handle stress. At least they haven’t announced another committee to study what to do. Maybe that will be on the agenda for Monday.

        • you say
          ‘Health dept is not looking good at the moment.’

          They look right down right shit
          A complete and utter sackful of bollocks.
          ….Because they are shit.

          Ashley ‘Ernst’ Blofeld is CEO/HOD/Top Dog/Media star/Tshirt face ..whatever label you want
          They have lied and deflected blame to others and the buck stops with him on operational madders.

          They (Blofeld’s M.O.H.) have blamed GPs, DHBs, couriers, etc for THEIR screw ups
          PPE, Flu vaccine, border checks, procedural issues.

          Let me explain.
          There are three big spending Govt Departments.
          Health, Education, Social Welfare.
          S.W. and Education get scrutiny and this is reported on, a bit.
          Health has never been scrutinised.
          Now it is, but only a teeny bit.

          M.O.H. is poorly run (Blofeld as CEO) and there is poor execution.
          They have got away with a lot of failings (Measles, Meningitis alone in the last 2 years)

          Four times as many kids in Samoa died from Measles than have (allegedly) died from Covid in NZ.
          83 dead kids.
          Eighty three. Dead. Let that sink in.
          Because the NZ MOH were slack arsed. Blofeld’s MOH.
          The media filth will not emphasise that so as not to upset the golden goose.

          Think of Ashley “Ernst’ Blofeld as a weasely politician because, in effect, that is what he is.
          A true Bond villain. 83 dead kids
          Now don’t expect his outfit to handle Covid well.
          The people of Samoa don’t trust him.
          Why would we?

          If we had a media they would investigate this lot.
          Unfortunately these SJWs posing as journos will do the same sort of job they did on the Children’s Ministry (troubled children uplift) – and spin the blame in the wrong place.

          It took private enterprise man Rob Fyfe to activate business people to acquire PPE gear.
          This showed up MOH/Blofeld the villain
          Nek minute: Fyfe was sidelined.
          ————————
          Lies is the currency of the plunging NZ economy.
          Ashley Bloomfield is no Saint.
          He is a lying cunt that takes no responsibility for the cocks-ups under his watch and direct reports.

          This is the media again deflecting.
          The media needs taxpayer handouts to survive.
          They will ‘report’ the narrative that keeps the people in power who will shower them with (our) money. Do your homework.

          I don’t like it one bit.
          It is the reality.
          If people are lazy -and they are- they will swallow the media lies -repeated from lying politicians and public servants(sic) – and the country will suffer.

          We are suffering .
          It is post truth world.
          BLM, Globby warming etc are merely building blocks in the wall of deceit
          This suits Ashley ‘Ernst’ Blofeld. He is a villain. One of many.
          But it will get worse. Much worse.

  7. Willie Jackson would ‘take a knee’ for Cindy if it means keeping his very well paid job. Willie is an apologist for the total debacle under the Mad Queen.

    COVID-19: Willie Jackson defends ‘upset’ Jacinda Ardern as ‘let down’ Judith Collins claims ‘we’ve being lied to’

    “You think you have got everything in place. We went hard, we went early. There was huge support for what we did. We all know that. You tick all the boxes. But sometimes these things happen.”

    He expressed “faith” in Ardern’s leadership, but Collins, a senior National MP, claimed New Zealanders are being lied to.

    • The boxes were not ticked!

      Garner wrapped up the interview by saying everyone would have a good weekend, “be positive” and “do this together”.

      Jackson said: “Come on, get positive Judith. What’s wrong with you this morning? Too negative.”

      That didn’t go down well.

      “I am just feeling really let down by you guys. You are putting everyone at risk. Just stop it. We should be in charge,” Collins said.

      The testing was not done.
      Who wants a positive CoVid test result, kissing & a hugging roaming thru NZ.
      Negative is good, when the testing is done.

    “We can do it, but you got to stick to the protocols. You cannot have any slackers.”

    He wanted to know who was responsible for the bungle at the border. There have been promises to do better, but no apology from Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern for it.

    “You’ll never get improvement, you’ll never get accountability in this or any other organisation until we find out who decided that they would take the law into their own hands,” Peters said.

    • The firearms register is the most dangerous item in this act. They will be requiring firearms owners to itemise what’s in their cabinets. It’s only a matter of time until these shopping lists fall into the wrong hands. (Not that much time either going by what we’ve already seen with the compromised buy-back database). They’ll therefore be asking firearms owners to potentially put themselves and their families at risk. Because of this I don’t believe compliance will be high, and a greater wedge will be driven between the firearms community and the police.

She disagrees with Rodney Hyde at every turn. He speaks sense at all times but she disagrees with everything he says. Bloody hell she is a real mad woman seriously, believing the gun laws that are being enacted at the moment are going to make a difference. She gets so angry so quickly at every thing he says. He remains cool calm and considered.

Shame on them. You may find this report just published about Canada’s experience of interest:

          Effect of firearms legislation on suicide and homicide in Canada from
          1981 to 2016

          https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0234457

          Abstract

          Canada implemented a series of laws regulating firearms including
          background and psychological screening, licensing, and training in the
          years 1991, 1994, and 2001. The effects of this legislation on suicide
          and homicide rates were examined over the years 1981 to 2016. Models
          were constructed using difference-in-difference analysis of firearms and
          non firearms death rates from 1981 to 2016. In addition, negative
          binomial regression was used to test for an association between rates of
          suicide by Canadian Province and firearms prevalence, using licensing
          rates as a proxy for prevalence. No associated benefit from firearms
          legislation on aggregate rates of male suicide was found. In men aged 45
          to 59 an associated shift from firearms suicide after 1991 and 1994 to
          an increase in hanging resulted in overall rate ratios of 0.994 (95%CI,
          0.978,1.010) and 0.993 (95%CI, 0.980,1.005) respectively. In men 60 and
          older a similar effect was seen after 1991, 1994, and 2001, that
          resulted in rate ratios of 0.989 (95%CI, 0.971,1.008), 0.994 (95%CI,
          0.979,1.010), and 1.010 (95%CI, 0.998,1.022) respectively. In females a
          similar effect was only seen after 1991, rate ratio 0.983 (95%CI,
          0.956,1.010). No beneficial association was found between legislation
          and female or male homicide rates. There was no association found with
          firearm prevalence rates per province and provincial suicide rates, but
          an increased association with suicide rates was found with rates of low
          income, increased unemployment, and the percentage of aboriginals in the
          population. In conclusion, firearms legislation had no associated
          beneficial effect on overall suicide and homicide rates. Prevalence of
          firearms ownership was not associated with suicide rates. Multifaceted
          strategies to reduce mortality associated with firearms may be required
          such as steps to reduce youth gang membership and violence,
          community-based suicide prevention programs, and outreach to groups for
          which access to care may be a particular issue, such as Aboriginals.

  16. Ive been out this morning looking for a new car for one of my customers ,she was in the car with me so the radio was off and We had no idea what was going on in massey
    I dropped the lady off after a successful search for a car and headed towards home via Don buck rd ,turned on the radio only to hear that a policeman had been shot dead in the very area I was travelling through .The first thing going through my pea brain was jeeez I hope i dont get carjacked but to be fair the only time I felt nervous was when travelling past the community police station at the top of triangle rd where there were at least six steely faced young officers cradling their assault weapons as if they were their first born sons.
    I’m prepared to bet $1000 that the filthy dog of a cop killer doesn’t have a firearms licence ,and if he does its because someone forgot to cancel it after his 6th jail term ,FFS.

  20. Cyber attack underway against Australian Government – Prime Minister Scott Morrison
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/world/2020/06/cyber-attack-underway-against-australian-government-prime-minister-scott-morrison.html

    Australian private and public sector organisations are currently being breached in what Prime Minister Scott Morrison says is a “sophisticated” cyber attack.

    The attacks have targeted all levels of the Government, political organisations, essential service providers and operators of other critical infrastructure, Morrison said at a media briefing in Canberra.

    While Morrison said Australia will not identify which country was responsible, senior Government sources have told the ABC they believe China is behind it.

    “We know it is a sophisticated state-based cyber actor because of the scale and nature of the targeting,” Morrison said.

      So ‘Uncle Ben’ on the packet will no longer receive payment for the use of his photo. That’ll teach the man, apparently a Chicago cook, for having a work ethic.
      How counterproductive of the wankers, if not wracist!! 🙄

      • To be woke aligned and diversity aware, the new face of this product line will be ‘Aunty Ben.’
        You can now purchase the humble staple food in seven new vibrant colours.
        Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet.
        White rice is no longer available, and has been arrested.
        Please remember black rice matters, significantly more than any other rice.
        Thank you, for shopping at ‘Morons Direct’, and have a rice day.

  22. Bryan Firebrand | Chief Editor |Waterton Chronical:

    As pressure mounts on El Presidente Jacinda Ardern to for once in her life actually turn up and, you know, take responsibility for something that she was responsible for, our glorious leader has once again gone with the “smile and hug” approach.

    The news comes following the revelation that two randoms from the UK were allowed for some reason an exemption to New Zealand’s “strict” quarantine controls amid the COVID-19 “crisis” to attend a funeral in Wellington, some 680km away from Auckland.

    “Wait, If the funeral was in Wellington, why didn’t they just fly there?” you ask?

    The Waterton Chronicle put this exact question, among others, to the Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern.

    “Fxxk, I don’t know? Maybe they wanted to see Hobbiton, or the glow worms or something? At least they’re spending money, and stuff.” Jacinda explained.

    “Wait. Sorry. I forgot. They actually didn’t stop at all between Auckland and Wellington. The official story.. I mean, the truth, is they drove non-stop from central Auckland to central Wellington.” added our glorious, truth-telling leader.

    “So they pissed in bottles and stuff?” this reporter asked.

    “Look. Would you like a hug and a photo with me? I think it’d be a good idea.” our Supreme Leader asked.

    Jacinda then took the awkward pause as an opportunity to announce her latest policy, which she calls “The COVID Challenge”.

    “Look, we’re pretty sure it’s possible to drive from Auckland to Wellington on one tank of gas, without stopping at all for anything, even if you accidentally set off in the complete opposite direction and have to ask for directions from some randoms, so, in an attempt to just make this all go away and get people focusing on how I’m a mum and I wear hijabs and stuff, we’ve announced the ‘COVID Challenge’” Jacinda explained.

    This reporter understands that the COVID Challenge will see a group of hand-picked Jacinda supporters line up (facing south this time) in central Auckland determined to prove that it is technically possible to drive non-stop to Wellington, and thus put to rest any ideas that maybe the Prime Minister is full of shit.

    “Yeah look, the team that wins will have to average about 70kmh for fuel economy reasons, so it could take them a while. But we gave them plenty of bottles to piss in along the way.”

    • They should let Mark Lundy out on parole for 24 hours to act as pacemaker. He could drive from Auckland to Wellington & back before Jacinda’s mob made it to the Waikato Expressway.

      And on one tank! 🙂

  25. The Voyage of the Venus Pirates, 1806-1807
    Early Sailing Vessels and Visitors to Tauranga, Part VIII
    The Voyage of the Venus Pirates, 1806-1807

    Looking out to sea, most Tauranga residents can identify Taumaihi Island. Situated close to the southern end of Motiti or Flat Island, it is accessible at low tide with permission, via a narrow spit of packed stone and sand. During the first two decades of the 19th century, Motiti was intensely cultivated and supported a large Maori population. Taumaihi Island which had been scarped over the centuries into an impregnable refuge pa known as Matarehua, was in 1806 controlled by the Ngaiterangi rangatira Hukere. The arrival of the Venus, a small, innocuous brigantine (two masted vessel), off Motiti and Taumaihi in 1806 set in motion events that led to the destruction of Matarehua Pa, the death of Hukere and many of the Motiti people.

  26. As a James bond fan this made me laugh:

    “Bond had a natural affection for coloured people, but he reflected how
    lucky England was compared with America where you had to live with the
    coloured problem from the schooldays up. He smiled as he remembered
    something Felix Leiter had said to him on their last assignment together
    in America. Bond had referred to Mr. Big, the famous Harlem criminal,
    as ‘that damned nigger. Leiter had picked him up. ‘Careful now James,’
    he had said. ‘People are so sensitive about colour around here that you
    can’t even ask a barman for a jigger of rum. You have to ask for a
    jegro.’
    The memory of Leiter’s wisecrack cheered Bond up.”

  28. Quoted text from Ben Rozier.

    What is privilege?…

    Privilege is wearing$200.00 sneakers when you’ve never had a job.
    Privilege is wearing $300.00 Beats headphones while living on public assistance.
    Privilege is having a smartphone with a data plan which you receive no bill for.
    Privilege is living in public subsidized housing where you don’t have a water bill, where rising property taxes, rents and energy costs have absolutely no effect on the amount of food you put on your table.
    Privilege is the ability to go march against, and protest, against anything that triggers you, without worrying about taking a day off work, or the consequences that accompany such behavior.
    Privilege is having as many children as you want, regardless of your employment status, and be able to send them off to daycare or school you don’t pay for.
    Privilege is sending your kids to school early for the school programs and breakfast, and then keeping them there for the after school program…all at no cost to you…paid for by the people who DO HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE RISING TAXES AND COSTS!!..you know, us the ‘PRIVILEGED’, the ones who pay while you TAKE, TAKE, TAKE!

    • I do not see any difference between the current mess that is in Government or any other political party. What you need to remember is that ALL politicians and ALL political parties have to toe the UN line. They are hamstrung by big business, global corporations and international policies. They can make all the right noises to appeal to voters but ALL of them are caught in the web of globalists pushing their One World Government agenda.

    • This guy’s posting was thinking outside the square.
      Mighty good tactic.

      Many New Yorkers are completely obsessed with their city, even the celebrities.
      They practically worship the place.
      Little do they know, their city was named in honour of The Duke of York at the time, who went on to create Britain’s greatest slave empire.
      This wasn’t a few slaves like some of the founding fathers, but between 90,000 and 100,000 slaves belonging to him, which he traded and sold.
      This is our chance to take down their precious jewel.
      This is our chance to take down Babylon.
      If we can wage a war against the New York City name, they will have no choice but to change it.
      This will fuck over the New York Times and especially The New Yorker.
      It will probably cost billions to rename everything too.
      They get what they deserve.

    • ……”but WTF are we going to do about”……

      Not much that can be done. We all have one vote & few are going to be fans of measures that will make them poorer.

      As individuals we’d do best to encourage anyone wavering about endorsing National to commit their vote to ACT. They are guaranteed Epsom & every party vote will count unlike the New Conservatives who will need 5% of the total votes cast nationwide. This is a totally unrealistic target & failure assists the Left.

      Vote NZ Conservatives…….get Labour.

      • Yes – I and another I know – are waiting to see how the 5% looks. There is also the thought that at least one votes for the Party one wants and stays true to your convictions – unfortunately I can no longer vote National and although ACT is my second choice there are some aspects I am against – in the end perhaps it is for the one that best represents your thought and morales.

        • So long as you are happy with the likely outcome, ie. that you have wasted your vote & aided the opposition.

          Frequently we have to sacrifice the perfect for the possible.

    From suit and tie,
    To shirt and trousers,
    To singlet and undies,
    To grass skirt,
    To loin cloth,
    To fig leaf,
    To Labour party cocktail party.
