  1. Fox news biggest Saturday audience ever.

    https://www.foxnews.com/media/trump-rally-gives-fox-news-largest-saturday-night-audience-in-history?fbclid=IwAR37FC3Wbx9lycm6xd0znj2aTGUIAsnhIjuLclxtgKsBpTveWuNAZQF61eA

    Never mind TIK Tok. Spolit little yappies.

    President Trump’s rally on Saturday attracted a record-setting audience on TV despite the smaller-than-expected crowd in attendance at the Tulsa, Okla., event.

    A whopping 7.7 million total viewers tuned into Fox News from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. EDT during Trump’s remarks, making it the most watched Saturday in the network’s history during that time period, according to early Nielsen data.

    Trump’s rally also gave Fox News its largest Saturday night primetime audience ever from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.

  2. So now Stuff are getting set to attack rocket Lab.
    Some unknown spiteful little nobody from Nelson. Probably another Trust Baby.

    Today on The Detail, Emile Donovan speaks to investigative journalist Ollie Neas about the company’s deep ties with the US military and intelligence agencies, and whether our policies around space launches are in the country’s national interests.

    (This written piece is a just a taster – listen to the podcast for the full story.)

    These hater just have to hate.

      • ……”the good things the US space program has given us”…..

        All true but we’re being fed spun bullshit left, right & centre that ignores the reality that the NZ innovators who developed the company sold out zonks ago. From Wikipedia:

        ……”Rocket Lab is a private American aerospace manufacturer and smallsat launch service provider with a wholly owned New Zealand subsidiary.”……

        We are privileged to host a small manufacturing site in Auckland & a launching pad in Mahia. That real estate is our total input yet every time a rocket dodges the Pacific ocean the misguided partisan cheering is equal to as if we won a 100 metres sprint gold at the Olympics!

        It’s cringe-worthy.

    • I support the work being done to facilitate the use of the Mahia Launch site by Rocket Lab. That US Intelligence and perhaps military users are customers does not trouble me.

      I hold the key support given to this country by soldiers of the USA during dangerous stages of WWII was at a level, including loss of American lives, that we cannot forget or conveniently ignore now. This country was at a high level of risk.

      History does need to be remembered and not set aside when woke fantasies about everlasting peace and equality are bandied about. The USA was a critical supporter at a dangerous time and remains so now. We should be mindful of that when considering these issues.

  3. A nice win for a change.

    A sacked stop-go worker who let cars through a busy intersection at the wrong time has been ordered to pay his former boss $17,000 in legal fees.

    Yoon Cheol Hong took his employer, Chevron Traffic Services Limited, to the Employment Court in Auckland in October 2019.

  4. Duncan Garner: Hamilton’s narrow-minded leaders should grow up, help Auckland amid water crisis

    Auckland has waited seven years to have its application to take more water heard by Waikato Regional Council.

    There are still 105 applications ahead of Auckland City.

    And Tainui is in the background blocking it, saying sort out who owns the water first.

        Auckland needs water, we are told. Twenty-five million liters a day is only six Olympic pools’ worth, so I can’t see the problem. Maybe we can appease the restless natives of the Waikato plains south of the Bombay Hills with offerings of Holden parts, recovered from the middens and back yards of West Auckland.

              • It is totally irresponsible to increase the population of a city without accompanying expansions and upgrades in infrastructure.
                – Roading
                – Utilities
                – Medical facilities
                – Educational and prison facilities (may not be needed so much, depending on where the immigrants are sourced)
                – etc.

                • The infrastructure issue has been ignored by both National & Labour. Roading affects everyone multiple times daily so gets addressed at least in part. Sewage & water, less so & the problem keeps getting shoved under the carpet which after years of this treatment now seems very lumpy.

                  Probably the only way to get infrastructure the attention it needs is to reserve ten knighthoods each year to be awarded for outstanding contributions to keeping the faeces flowing.

            Aucklands best solution is to installrainwater systems into building. Some of the big ones down town already have these sysytems.
            But you are not allowed to by council rules.
            Why, well the meter ingoing water and bill your sewerage based on a % of the ingoing. If people were using rainwater systems they would not know how to bill them for the sewer water.
            Lots of places just use a minimum charge.

  5. Backlash against Woke firearm online safety advert showing a hunter firing at rabbits birthday party.

    Hunters up in arms over Government’s new online safety ad campaign
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/rural/2020/06/hunters-up-in-arms-over-government-s-new-online-safety-ad-campaign.html

    ACT leader David Seymour also weighed in on the issue, saying the ad needed to be “changed immediately”.

    “For a government agency to put hunters in the same category as pornographers, bullies, and groomers is a complete disgrace,” Seymour said.

    “What message does that send to children whose parents hunt for food? Or who do pest control on the farm?”

    He said hunting was a “completely legitimate activity” and the campaign “will only further stigmatise the firearms community”.

    Man whose mother was murdered shocked to bump into her killer out and about in Tauranga

    Andrew Tepania was 12-years-old when his mother Edwina Graham was killed by her partner.

    In 2002 Edward John Tapsell poured petrol over the 30-year-old and set her alight.

    Tapsell was sentenced to life imprisonment for the crime, at the time it was described as one of the worst homicide investigations detectives had worked on.

    Corrections says Tapsell was granted permission to visit the Bay of Plenty, and says Mr Tepania’s “registered address at the time was not in the Bay of Plenty”.

    Mr Tepania has now moved again and says he wanted to share his story so others don’t experience a similar situation.

  9. A rally in the UK – in support of Donald Trump – is NZ full of dumbfucks or what?

    Clearly the poms know that the only chance for retaining democracy for four more short years – is if Trump wins again. Has there ever been such huge popular support in the UK for a US President?

    The freedom loving Brits, who are just through kicking the EU Fourth Reich to the curb, know this – with so much of our ancestry from the UK – how come we’ve de-evolved into a lesser species. Whereby the leader of the so-called National party disavows owning a MAGA hat?

    When I’m in public, I look around at the people around me in disgust at the stupid things they say and believe (I just struggle with anyone who defends obvious, obvious wrongs and evils) – I have sympathy for the eponymous Alice when she went through the Looking Glass.

    Buried bread bags filled with cash forfeited to police, along with a 1970 Ford Mustang
    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/121902111/buried-bread-bags-filled-with-cash-forfeited-to-police-along-with-a-1970-ford-mustang

    Bread bags filled with cash and buried on a Hawke’s Bay property have been forfeited to police after they were linked to profit of a large gang methamphetamine operation.

    As well as the $310,000 cash, police have also taken possession of a 1970 Ford Mustang and a 5.5 hectare property alongside the Napier-Taupō highway.

    They were the property of Derrick Irwin, who was jailed for 13 and a half years in 2018 for multiple drug and firearm offences in 2014.

    Irwin, now 58, was a patched Mongrel Mob member and would frequently host gang members at his property, about 5km north of Te Hāroto, to conduct drug deals.

    Justice Francis Cooke heard the application in the High Court in Napier earlier this month.

    The Commissioner of Police, represented by Fiona Cleary, sought an order for $793,067.33 in unlawful benefits. That is the estimated profit he made from selling the drugs, plus about $111,000 he had claimed in unlawful Work and Income benefit payments.

    • Gangs exist for several reasons. Among them:

      – Provide masculine role models for young men raised by solo mothers
      – Provide a source of pride for young men
      – Provide a source of status for young men
      – Provide a supply of alpha male sperm to soon-to-be solo mothers
      – Provide a certain security to their members
      – Provide a way for young men to earn money and acquire goods

      These are real needs of young men. Years ago, these needs were met through other institutions. Something changed.

      What should NZ society do to undercut the social-need-fulfilling offerings of gangs and thus reduce the supply of young recruits that they need to continue? How do we reduce the number of young recruits?

      Even if a solution could be found, the process would take at least a generation.

  11. Coronavirus poll: Should returning Kiwis have to contribute to managed isolation, quarantine stays?
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2020/06/coronavirus-poll-should-returning-kiwis-have-to-contribute-to-managed-isolation-quarantine-stays.html

    YES: 84%

    The Government is looking at the idea of having returning Kiwis contribute to their managed isolation or quarantine costs.

    More than 20,000 Kiwis and their close families have entered the facilities, costing about $81 million to the end of June. There’s $298 million appropriated for the facilities until the end of the year.

  12. Good stuff.

    Now breast, lung, bowel and prostate cancer can all be treated in a WEEK as patients receive shorter – and more convenient – courses of radiotherapy

    Thousands of cancer patients are set to be spared from weeks of back-to-back hospital visits – after studies and trials have shown that five days of treatment, or even less, can be just as effective at blasting away tumours.

    People having radiotherapy, which uses powerful radiation beams to kill cancer cells, would once have had their lives turned upside down.

    Daily visits to hospital, often for up to six weeks, were the norm – with work and family life put on hold.

    But now – thanks to advances in technology and precision techniques – this no longer has to be the case.

          It is basically impossible to defend.

          With Dangerous Driving the cops have to prove it and as we well know, they are too lazy to do that.

    Jacinda Ardern hits out at ‘inaccurate’ claims over Ihumātao dispute settlement
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/06/jacinda-ardern-hits-out-at-inaccurate-claims-over-ihum-tao-dispute-settlement.html

    Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is rejecting “inaccurate” claims that a deal is imminent over the disputed Ihumātao land and that she only recently became involved.

    But the Prime Minister on Tuesday morning would not confirm the claims, and said some of the reporting she has seen “around timings and things being brought to Cabinet wasn’t accurate”.

    “When we have an announcement to make we’ll obviously make it,” she said. “But it is fair to say that it’s been an issue that obviously we’ve worked on for some time and are still seeking to reach a conclusion.”

    The Prime Minister also rejected claims she only recently became involved in negotiations.

    “That’s probably where I’d say that hasn’t always been accurate. I’ve been involved since the very beginning, since a year ago when we first saw the occupation,” she said.

    “Of course, it was an issue important to New Zealand and important to so many within Māoridom. It was something I’ve been involved in ever since. That never stopped.”

    Molotov cocktails, ammunition, drugs, and cash have been seized in a major sting involving a notorious gang.

    The senior hierarchy of the Mongols have been arrested as part of Operation Silk, which involved more than 100 police staff executing search warrants at 10 properties across the Bay of Plenty region on Tuesday.

    Detective Superintendent Greg Williams says at least 228 charges have been laid against 10 people.

    “The majority of this Bay of Plenty gang were deported from Australia and were from one of the Bandidos chapters in Brisbane.

    “What this investigation will allege is that this organised crime group was involved in the sale and supply of methamphetamine and cocaine on a commercial level into the Bay of Plenty as well as across the North Island, causing significant harm to our communities.”

    Police say at least six shootings in the area were also linked to the motorcycle gang.

    These gangs have made it clear they will use violence to protect their share of the illegal market, he said.

  19. Number of drivers failing to stop for police hits new record high in first quarter of 2020

    More New Zealand drivers are speeding away from police than ever before, according to provisional statistics released by police this month.

    New Zealand First spokesperson for Law and Order Darroch Ball yesterday highlighted the rising number of pursuits, saying that harsher penalties for those who flee are the answer.

    “These numbers have been steadily increasing for the past six years with no action being taken,” Mr Ball said.

    “There needs to be a re-think of how we approach and deal with fleeing drivers – whatever is happening now is clearly not working with continued sky-rocketing numbers – and with no end to even more record numbers in sight.”

    • ……“These numbers have been steadily increasing for the past six years with no action being taken,”……

      Well, I for one disagree with Mr Ball. We have been told by all manner of crim cuddlers that it’s the certainty of being caught that disincentivises the practise of ‘doing a runner’. We need harden up, go back to the past & pursue the wankers until they give up or crash.

  20. Russ Rimmington WRC on Auckland taking more water from the Waikato River. He’s a crusty old councillor who has been around for years and was taking no prisoners. While the Waikato is a huge river there is a growing population up river with Waipa in the Waikato requiring much more water and waiting its turn for the RMA to approve more water be drawn off. Auckland is 7th in line to be heard. Why should Auckland get preferential water approval above other applicants when not addressing their long standing water access issues?

    Auckland water crisis: Waikato Regional Council chair says Phil Goff is ‘not going to take water’ from Waikato River
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2020/06/auckland-water-crisis-waikato-regional-council-chair-says-phil-goff-is-not-going-to-take-water-from-waikato-river.html

    “We do backflips to help Auckland and Watercare, and they can’t even process the water that’s allocated to them. They just got round to doing that in the last three weeks – that’s the truth of the matter. They haven’t got the processing facility at Tuakau and the truth needs to be told,” Rimmington claimed to The AM Show on Tuesday morning.

    “We can’t operate outside the law…how would you feel if you’d gone through the list of 100 applicants and suddenly Auckland jumps the queue? That’s not the way we operate in this country. We’ve got to be lawful – Phil Goff might pull it through, but there will be major ramifications, I believe, if they pull that off.”

    Auckland needs to explore alternative options to retain its dwindling water supply, suggesting water tanks on roofs or water-saving showerheads – none of which have been addressed, he argued. Rimmington also hit out at Watercare for their management of the “debacle”, urging them to take responsibility for the crisis and stop pawing off the Waikato.

    “Your water restrictions didn’t come on until May, for heaven’s sake. We started in December. [Watercare has] got to get a grip and take some responsibility… I would take them to task and look at that whole management very seriously.

  21. Here’s a brain fart.

    Imagine that you believe that the ideal society should have equality of outcomes.
    How do you treat an ethnic minority who on average is not like you? Do you make special rules to artificially improve their outcomes? Do you suppress the outcomes of the majority to achieve your beloved equality?

    In truth, is your desire for equality of outcomes a cover for what you really seek, which is the enormous coercive power that would be needed to achieve such equality?

    “I love equality,” he said. But in his heart what he lusted after so much more were the great powers required to achieve such a goal.

    • “Do you make special rules to artificially improve their outcomes?”

      How do you explain many of that group are relatively successful in life while others fail? Does that mean only a portion, like all sections of society need help while others succeed on their own? How odd.

      • The trouble with “affirmative action” is that someone who is 1/8th the target minority by blood can take advantage of the system. It also cheapens the outcome. Who will trust a recipient of “affirmative action”?
        Like I said, “on average are not like you.” There will be, of course, many who will succeed in today’s world.

    Steve Bing: Hollywood mogul reportedly dies aged 55
    Reports 55-year-old producer, who fathered a child with Liz Hurley, has been found dead in LA

    As well as his work in Hollywood, Bing also donated money to the Democratic Party.

    His name is listed on the Giving Pledge website, a project launched in 2010 by Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffett that asks the super-rich to give away the majority of their wealth to philanthropy.

  24. China feels cornered.
    The Indians are riled up about recent Chinese incursions and deaths of Indian troops. The EU and the US are turning on China in trade disputes.
    Things could get interesting if the Chinese Premier feels that his position is under threat. He may decide to lash out. One way would be through Kim Yo-jong (Rocket Man’s sister and heir). China may pull the puppet’s strings to trigger a distraction on the Korean Peninsula. My monitoring of Japanese political blogs suggest that tension in that part of the world has escalated, and that North-South relations have been put back some 20 years.

  25. Covid claims another life.
    Steve Bing, 55 in the USA.
    Former BF of Liz ‘hang em out’ Hurley.

    He jumped from the 27th floor.
    Apparently from reduced people contact because of Covid
    …became ‘depressed about the lack of human contact during coronavirus quarantine’
    I’m not sure that is the only reason.

    His loss does not appear that great:-
    -“In addition his work in the industry, Bing was a long-time donor to progressive causes and the William J. Clinton Foundation.
    In 2012, he joined Bill Gates and Warren Buffett’s Giving Pledge ”
    -In addition to having a close relationship with Bill Clinton, his political contributions have included Al Gore, Gavin Newsom, Hilary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi and Dianne Feinstein.
    -..and he wrote the 2003 movie Kangaroo Jack. Yeegads.

    For the two women he impregnated, he made them prove paternity in court.
    …Bing was compelled by court order to take DNA tests to confirm his paternity after he initially denied the children were his.
    Yay for Demoncrats. So upstanding.
    His denials didn’t fly. Neither could he.

    Suggestions already in that he was Arkancided !!

  26. The media filth are drinking any of the anti-Trump juju juice they can find to attack The Man.

    They are clinging vicariously to the imminent release of a ‘Disney on Ice’ presentation by John Revolting, sorry, I’ll read that again, John Bolton …
    https://www.rt.com/op-ed/492614-galloway-john-bolton-trump-book/
    by George Galloway ex Brit Mp

    ‘John Bolton’s vindictive tell-all ‘The Room Where It Happened’ contains little of worth on Donald Trump and seems motivated by anger that the US did not attack Venezuela, Iran or North Korea.’

    ‘Only marginally less surprising is his instant beatification by the prancers of the American liberal chatterati. Like George W. Bush, the late John McCain and Colin Powell,
    Bolton is the latest blood-soaked war criminal to be handed his pussy hat by the progressives, the resistance to Donald J. Trump.’

    George is like George the Dragon Slayer here:-

    “Trump disappointed John Bolton because he wouldn’t invade Venezuela, Iran, wouldn’t invade North Korea, wouldn’t invade anywhere new. And he’s frustrated that, unless something happens between now and November, Trump will end his term having started no new wars, withdrawn more troops from foreign adventures and fired fewer rockets than almost all of his unillustrious predecessors.

    Newly pussy-hatted Bolton, on the other hand, still couldn’t win election as dogcatcher in Albuquerque.”

    Johnny Bolton, you have been served.
    Still, the media filth will cling to this scribble of fiction as a drowning man/woman/transgender clings to a blade of grass. So Sad.

  31. Muller asking Cindy why she isn’t doing her job. Trev and Winston jump to her defence. She doesn’t like being questioned.

    “Does she really believe the country can take her seriously when she says at the core of her view is a strident border when the Prime Minister announces on the 8th of June there is mandatory testing but has to wait till yesterday to formally confirm it for the country?” Mr Muller asked.

    • Dear Mr Muller,
      There seems to be an obstruction hindering your quest for answers.
      Solution:
      Contact a gentleman by the name of Tau Henare. Get him to convince ‘the obstruction,’ that they need to finish their wrestling match from 2007, as it would determine once and for all, who is really the alpha male.

      Arrange a venue.

      Send Joseph Parker.
