If we ever have a Mt Rushmore, I don’t think Cindy will be immortalised on it.

  1. I wonder if Cindy did a little dance when she saw the latest poll? Winston didn’t look very happy, bring on the election and take out the trash.

      • Voters may have the opportunity to change the Govt but unless National promise to repeal the legislation preferably retrospectively then the safe choice is Party Vote ACT bring in 10 + ACT MPs and provide National with pragmatic policies that protect NZers from tyrannical inconcompetent politicians.

    • Her father who was a well respected cop must be suffering from concussion.

      He is constantly banging his head on the desk top whenever his daughter the communist chick makes another “ fuked up “ Captains call., she is so out of her depth it’s embarrassing.

      • Who says he is well respected?
        He was in Murupara in the 1980s when all the rapey shit was going down.
        3000 people in the town and he didn’t know.
        Sergeant ….Shultz
        That would make him a poor cop at best!

        It is more likely he is a liaison with the cops .
        eg why did they not investigate multiple sexual assaults enacted under the auspices of the Labour party?
        Two we know of, the sex and booze kids camp; and the carry on in Ardern’s own office
        There has been back scratching. Quid Pro Quo
        The cops have stuffed up massively (or were ordered) to let Tarrant get a gun licence -then all the events that flowed from that. Fruit of the poisonous tree.
        The cops lost guns ,cars, the whole shebang in the last year and no adverse impact.
        Gangs are up more than 30% but the cops have time to pursue conscientious objectors in their own homes.

        They have been politicised to Stasi level in the last 2 years.
        Thought police. Real crime does not matter.

        More to the point there are a bunch of Mexican standoffs going on in Wellington -J Ardern is pivotal in a lot of them
        The Mormon, Mr Ardern, was – as I understand it -in the Govt house ‘bubble’ during lockdown.
        He is riding shotgun for his daughter and still carrying her as are many others for whom she is the blessed figurehead…
        … the Dear Leader …when in July 3 years ago Labour were looking at another electoral defeat.

        Don’t deify Rosco Ardoom
        He is in the thick of the sickness.

    They know what side they support. The pattern was written decades ago “The helter skelter theory” to lead to “race wars” of the late 1960’s that resulted in some infamous murder cases. 🙁

    There is a good alternative. 🙂

  4. Incidents in NZ Immigration department, like Soubrek, Mr Boochani’s visa status,
    It will prove deadly to trust the police or government with anything.

    The man was accused of passing on secret police information to Yassine Atar, the brother of Oussama Atar.
    Oussama Atar is considered as one of the key figures in the preparation of the March 2016 Brussels terrorist attacks. ….
    …. accused of involvement in the Paris attacks. ….

    https://www.vrt.be/vrtnws/en/2020/06/19/police-officer-gets-50-months-suspended-sentence-for-charges-of/

    Would he get a generous severance package?
    Would the pension benefits, flow on to him?

    As already mentioned by one of our commentators happened in NZ with a police officer leaking info to organized crime.
    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/117976366/corrupt-auckland-cop-who-sold-police-database-information-to-gangs-jailed

    All this happens while departments look to increase their diversity to suit the ideal of being multi cultural.
    Where do those “diverse” “multiculti” place their loyalty?

    So the authorities with their religiosity build their “Tower of Babel”

    Some cultures have declared war on “western civilization” and have a ruthless stance on ones who do not believe.

  5. Possible reasons why David Clark still has a job:

    – Ardern has asked him to do something dodgy. He’s done it, and has evidence.
    – Apparently Clark comes up for nine years in parliament in November this year, at which time he becomes eligible for the parliamentary pension.
    – He has compromising photos of Cindy and Mallard

    • Clark has not earned a Parliamentary pension if his non performance during the COVID-19 matter to date is any indication of his contribution. Missing from action is my take on his level of contribution.

      Prime Minister has been ineffectual in dealing with this non performance.

  8. United States, European Union must face down China together – Mike Pompeo
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/world/2020/06/united-states-european-union-must-face-down-china-together-mike-pompeoc.html

    The United States and European Union need a shared understanding of China to resist it, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Thursday, calling Beijing a threat and accusing it of stealing European know-how to develop its economy.

    Pompeo said he had accepted a proposal by EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell to create a formal US-EU dialogue on China and would travel to Europe soon to host the first session.

    However, while the EU shares many of Washington’s concerns about what it says are predatory Chinese trade practices to dominate strategic industries, Brussels wants to tread a middle path between China and the United States.

    The EU, the world’s biggest trading bloc, held talks with Chinese leaders on Monday and sees Beijing as a partner in fighting climate change as well as an economic rival.

  9. A man goes to his doctor complaining about headaches. The doctor explains it’s due to blood flow, and he has three options.
    “I could remove half of your heart to limit the blood flow, that should fix it.”
    The man cries out “no, I don’t want to be a National supporter!”
    “Well then, I could remove half your brain to reduce the pressure, that should also do the trick.”
    The man cries out “no, I don’t want to be a Labour supporter!”
    “Well the final option is for me to remove your testicles to fix the hormone imbalance.”
    The man thinks for a moment, and says “okay, I’ll go with that option.”
    The doctor smiles and says “I knew you were a greens supporter.”

    LOL

    David Clark’s Wikipedia page locked to stop people editing in anger over his treatment of Dr Ashley Bloomfield

    On Thursday someone edited Clark’s Wikipedia page to read he was an “avid campaigner of the throwing under the bus policy”.
    One of the edits made to the page.

    Multiple other edits were made in the same vein – another said Clark was “the Minister for Health and throwing people under the bus”.

    Another edit called him a “non-essential worker” – a nod to the Leader of the Opposition Todd Muller’s comments about the situation.

    Muller slammed Clark, saying he was “the very definition of a non-essential worker”.

    The edits have all been removed and the entire page has been protected by administrators to stop “persistent vandalism”.

  11. A Presidential legacy, that was able to take advantage of the previous administrations laziness and presumption of retaining power.

    When President Trump entered the White House in 2017, he inherited 108 judicial vacancies — the most for an incoming president since Bill Clinton in 1992.

    “No modern president has had this level of impact on the composition of the federal courts,” Jonathan Turley, a law professor at George Washington University, said. “This is a master footprint for any president on the judiciary.”
    https://disrn.com/news/trump-appoints-200th-federal-judge

    Certainly keeping up with his job in the judiciary department. 🙂

    In 2016 …… Trump warned that the U.S. Supreme Court could see the replacement of three to five justices during the next presidential term.
    If a Democrat were to pick all the departing justices it would change the United States for decades.
    “The court will never come back, and I’m not talking one issue or two issues,
    I’m talking about many issues,” Trump said.
    “We will become Venezuela,” which has replaced Greece as conservative America’s favorite cautionary meme of socialism’s dangers.

    …. You’ll say ‘Please, Mr. President, we beg you sir, we don’t want to win anymore.
    It’s too much.
    It’s not fair to everybody else.’” Trump said. “And I’m going to say ‘I’m sorry, but we’re going to keep winning, winning, winning,
    We’re going to make America great again.” ……

    https://billingsgazette.com/news/state-and-regional/govt-and-politics/trump-we-re-going-to-win-so-much-you-re-going-to-be-so-sick/article_2f346f38-37e7-5711-ae07-d1fd000f4c38.html

    Despite the odd hiccup, or turn coat, those numbers will prevail.
    Will be interesting as they should be a good counter to those Democrat State Governors and Mayors, in letting cities & states go to socialist ruin.

  12. Why doesn’t this guy sue his own crew of “Super heroes” ? that rate themselves good enough for the job.

    … The ‘Seattle Superheroes’, a costumed vigilante team which has taken over law enforcement in the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP), had an opportunity to take real action to fight crime after a man was killed and two others injured in a shooting within the far-left autonomous territory.

    As police are banned from the CHOP, the duty of law enforcement fell to the ‘Seattle Superheroes’, a motley crew of misfits in brightly colored costumes, under the leadership of a man known only as ‘Red Ranger’.

    “We never get that excited about polls because we know the only poll that counts is the one on election day,” National MP Judith Collins told The AM Show on Friday.

    “But we are very pleased with the great progress that’s going on, and we’ve just got to keep on working hard.”

    Labour’s Willie Jackson, appearing with Collins on The AM Show, said it’s a “good poll for the Government”, even though it would see NZ First kicked out of power.

    “We’re 15 percent ahead. Just remember when you look at the poll, look at us and the Greens – 56 percent.”

    In New Zealand the media comply with how the message is put out there.
    The New Zealand police also seem to follow the Canadian system

    • The aggressive opposition to the statement “White lives matter” and the insistence that it is a white supremacist slogan is an indication of the authoritarian nature of the Left. Any opposition is “hate” in their eyes. This tells you quite a lot about their mindset.

        When asked what they expect to achieve i.e what the end result will be, they haven’t got a clue.
        It reminds of the lyrics to Pink Floyds classic “Time”:

        “Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
        Fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way.
        Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
        Waiting for someone or something to show you the way.”

        • These “protesters” on the street have their uses.
          – They are young and dumb (and of fighting age)
          – They have no jobs, few assets and little to loose
          – They can be manipulated if the right buttons are pushed (their rage at perceived “racism” and “inequality”)

          The handlers, funders and enablers are the “head” that the government ought to go after. But then, many who work for Big Government might also see the mob as a tool that they can exploit for their own purposes.

          Never let a crisis go to waste.

        “all lives matter” can not be true, if “white lives matter” can not be.
        To note in my comment below, “homosexual lives matter” can not be true, when there is a bigger bus to drive over them.

        In what terms do you measure “fanatical”?
        What is the price?
        Their life, or yours? to be controlled.

        Passive aggressive? like a hermit?

        Aggressive aggressive?, that is full of action that requires your response, to fight or flee?

          If that isn’t a measure of “fanatical,” then I don’t know what is.

  15. Lefty Chris Trotter gives Jacinda and David Clark both barrels. And Friday, as we know, is bad news announcement day

    “IF DAVID CLARK hasn’t been sacked by the time you read this, then Jacinda isn’t doing her job. His point-blank refusal to accept responsibility for the multiple institutional failures of his Health portfolio more than justifies Clark’s dismissal.

    Ministers of the Crown only have one job: to be responsible. As members of both the legislature and the executive they are a living bridge between citizen and state. A ministerial refusal to accept responsibility for failures occurring on his watch is also a refusal to uphold the essence of our Westminster-style representative democracy. If Jacinda doesn’t get this, then she should be given a swift tutorial by someone who does.

    Jacinda needs to get rid of Clark for another, much less high-falutin – but no less politically compelling – reason. He was unforgivably disrespectful of Ashley Bloomfield – and Newshub’s cameraman, Billy Paine, captured Bloomfield’s reaction for the whole world to see.

    That should not be a survivable offence.

    Week-in, week-out, like Jacinda herself, Ashley has stood behind a lectern in the Beehive Theatrette and kept us not only informed, but also calm. Has he let the ball fall through his hands of late? Yes, he has. But, for Christ’s sake, the guy has been carrying half New Zealand on his shoulders (with Jacinda carrying the other half) for months. That he hasn’t been able to catch every single operational curve-ball, thrown at him by every delinquent player in the New Zealand health system, is forgivable – isn’t it?

    If anything is likely to provoke such forgiveness, then it must surely be the callous treatment meted out to him by the guy who thought the Level 4 rules were only there for the “Team of Five Million” to follow. The guy who went mountain-biking during Lockdown. The guy who took himself off to Dunedin instead of insisting that – as the responsible minister – he be allowed to stand at his boss’s side for the duration of the Covid-19 emergency. The guy who owned-up on nationwide television to being “a bit of an idiot”.

    That guy doesn’t get to be mean to Ashley Bloomfield – and survive.

    Surely, Jacinda, you see that? Surely you’re not guilty (as one outspoken right-wing gentleman suggested to me this morning) of having questioned, in the finest Machiavellian style, whether it might not be advisable, during the heroic phase of the Covid-19 war, to have Clark sequestered in Dunedin; bringing him back to Wellington only when all the inevitable blunders, committed by the exhausted employees of our understaffed and under-resourced health system, started coming to light? I told him firmly that you weren’t that sort of politician. Don’t you dare prove me wrong!

    New Zealanders need to be shown, Jacinda, that you genuinely understand how pissed-off they are. It’s not just the sheer, mind-numbing dumbness of the mistakes that the people supposedly in charge have been making that’s got us yelling at the television. Underneath it all there’s the sneaking suspicion that, once again, we’ve been played for fools. Staying in our bubbles; washing our hands; socially distancing; coughing into our elbows: doing all the things we were told to do; while the people in charge, the people paid more than the prime minister, were fucking everything up.

    If you want to remain prime minister, Jacinda, you have to give us some sign that you get all this. Because if you don’t, then we, the voters, might start joining a few dots. You know what I’m talking about. We might just recall the young woman who stood in front of us and asked us to join her in transforming New Zealand through the “politics of kindness”. The young woman of “relentless positivity” and “practical idealism”, who said: “Let’s do this!” – and, God help us, persuaded Winston Peters to give her the chance.

    But then what happened, Jacinda? After we had given you our votes, what happened next? Were the promises of transformation fulfilled? Did the people charged with rolling out the changes give us anything that looked even remotely like genuine reform? Or, were the voters forced to endure one disappointment after another? Were the only tangible results produced by the general incompetence of your ministers the derisory snorts and disillusioned sighs from the electors they had let down?

    Your government’s consistent failure to deliver might have been forgiven if it had led to a radical shake-up of the entire coalition. If you had gotten tough with Winston and his NZ First colleagues: warning them that if the expectations of the people who voted for the governing parties were not met, then you would simply jump in a government car and make the short trip from the Beehive to Government House. If the numbers aren’t there for real change, Jacinda, then the only right move is to go out and win yourself some new numbers!

    Sadly, Jacinda, you haven’t followed that course. Instead, and exactly as happened in relation to the failure of our health services to deliver secure defences against the re-entry of the Covid-19 virus, incompetence and arrogance have gone unpunished. Just like his colleague, Phil Twyford – of KiwiBuild fame – David Clark juts out his chin and shamelessly apportions blame to everybody but himself. Even worse, he has turned viciously on Ashley Bloomfield, the nearest approximation to a competent, decent, humble and accountable public servant that this country possesses.

    And still, Jacinda, you do nothing. New Zealand’s self-confessed “idiot” of a Health Minister is still in possession of his warrant.

    Why? And for how much longer?”

                • It won’t alter the underlying situation unless immigration is addressed. It’s our inability to build houses & infrastructure at the same pace that we welcome all-comers that drives housing cost. The arithmetic is easy. One workshy refugee with family + one way air ticket to NZ is equal to burning down an existing house.

                  That is demand & supply in action.

      • But Cindy can’t have a nice QT holiday if nobody is open for her and the rest of the Labour pardy fooools. Why are they propping up select privately owned tourist businesses, Waitomo Caves, and bungy jumping in QT? How long are the taxpayer expected to pay for them? Either AJ Hacket bungy and other prime tourist businesses can survive on their own business model or they can’t. That’s capitalism. But then Winston warned us “capitalism is dead” and Cindy’s COL don’t believe in capitalism either so here we are:

    • I find that pretty bad.
      Much of the workers and residents in Queenstown are foreign citizens.
      It is not up to the taxpayer to bail them out.

      Also a lot of the operations are run by the Maori who purchased them with handouts/settlements then do not pay the equivalent tax on profit.
      No tax no taxpayer handouts !

      The Queenstown ‘fathers’ decided a decade+ ago to ‘go elite’
      They did not want kiwis there unless they were big spending.
      eg Ski trips.
      And now, happy for those very same scum taxpayer riff raff to bail them out.

      Mate, it is going to be over 2 years before things get back to where they were, we should not allow them to live in paradise on the taxpayer dime for all that time.
      This is the equivalent of the Wall Street and Motor car bailouts in the USA in 2008.
      Privatise profits, socialise losses.

      Lakes District council made life very difficult for the campground owners/managers- I spoke to several of them 8 years ago.
      The Council wanted them out and the old style kiwi camping to begone.

      I saw a bleat about the Frankton one a few years ago in a rag and the typical profile was long term residents in campgrounds from overseas – eg from south America – where they had not improved their standing in life one bit in over 5 years and still living hand to mouth in a campground.
      Its bullshit.

      There could be a reset.
      If the kiwi taxpayers bail it out let it be a reset for them (us)
      Rugby has gone back to the 1990s.
      Queenstown may have to follow.

    Smith, on Friday morning, said Mallard was giving licence for Labour to attack National MPs, when Smith was first kicked out for interjecting during Question Time.

    “I’m calling him out,” Smith said.

    “Was the interjection I made that I resulted in me getting kicked out a reasonable one? I think it was, it was a free hit by the Government on the Opposition allowed against the rules of Parliament by Trevor.”

    Smith said he tried to re-enter the House twice, seeking to know when he could resume sitting in the House as the Speaker’s officer wasn’t responding to his emails.

    “I went in and sought clarification … I’m making contact with the Speaker’s office, I’m not getting any communication back – I think I’m entitled to know, when am I allowed back in,” he said.

    • The lowering of road speed limits is just ridiculous. All the roads around us in a quiet country area have dropped 20km’s but some rural farmland roads seem to have gone from100km’s down to 60kms and there is no housing. Our car shows the legal speed we should be driving at and the speed sign changes every few 100 metres. It’s totally nuts! That’s JAG for you, crazy Californian greenie!

      So what if it takes just a few more minutes or more longer during your drive to work or home and having a longer day of work so feeling much more tired.

      Then the ways of how to make the better use of time on the road.
      Those slower safe speeds will mean it will be much safer to drive and smoke, so long as there are no young children in the vehicle, and also partake of any other ingredients. 🙂
      At those slow safe speeds the alcohol drink & drive limits can be raised.
      Cell phones at those slow safe speeds would be much easier to use. Perhaps even texting should be fitted in.

      So need to protest, just make the best use of this extra time on the road.// 🙂

  27. Excellent news for Parler.

    500,000 Users Sign Up For Parler In Three Days After Twitter Suspends Pro-Trump Accounts

    500,000 people created accounts on the social media platform Parler after Twitter banned two conservative accounts Tuesday.

    Parler’s user base increased by 50% this week, bringing the total number of users to over 1.5 million, Mediaite reported Thursday.

    The surge comes after Twitter permanently banned the account of Carpe Donktum, and locked the account of The National Pulse Editor-In-Chief Raheem Kassam. Both accounts, which were locked Tuesday, have over 200,000 followers.

    Conservatives, who were already frustrated with Twitter for what they say is arbitrary and unfair banning of right-wing accounts, flocked to Parler after the two accounts were suspended. Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Republican Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz both joined the platform.

    • …. Parler was founded in 2018 and has become a platform favored by supporters of President Trump.

      “Parler is an unbiased social media focused on real user experiences and engagement. Our content is moderated based off the FCC and the Supreme court of the United States which enables free expression without violence and a lack of censorship. Parler never shares your personal data,” the platform’s description reads. ….

      …… Conservative commentator Dan Bongino announced a partnership with Parler earlier this month, taking an ownership stake in the company.

      “I’ve decided it’s time to fight back against the Tech Tyrants. I’m beyond fed up with the censorship and bias of Twitter and Facebook and I’m not going to stand back and watch as they target us. As a result, I’ve taken an ownership stake in Parler, the hottest social media alternative in the market right now,” Bongino said. …..

      …… Twitter has about 330 million monthly active users. Parler claims to have more than 1 million users. …

  28. This is another outrage. A judge should not try and protect a government agency’s reputation. Is she another Labour supporting judge.

    Police considering appeal in porn-‘obsessed’ govt manager gym spy camera case

    But, despite police opposition, Judge Clare Bennett granted his application for a discharge without conviction, and his request for permanent name suppression when he appeared in the District Court last week.

    “Offending like this is serious.”

    But she said the offending was “an isolated incident” and she was satisfied that “the direct and indirect consequences of a conviction would be out of all proportion to the gravity of the offence”.

    She accepted that if the man was convicted, he might lose his job and both his and the government agency’s reputation would be negatively impacted.

    “This is a case involving the surreptitious recording of intimate visual images,” Judge Bennett said.

  29. Qantas to sack more than 6000 workers; launch $1.9 billion raising

    Qantas says it does not expect to resume international flying in any meaningful volume for another 12 months, and will sack 20 per cent of its workforce as part of a three-year plan to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Chief executive Alan Joyce said on Thursday morning the airline had no choice but to make 6000 of its 29,000 workers redundant as the global aviation industry faced a years-long recovery from the coronavirus crisis.

      Now his mob is in the poo (Which Alan probably is regularly 🙂 )

      And Rugby AU has been in a power of poo, so to speak
      …resulting in all of them not looking good

      Folau walked away with millions.

      I think what Folau did was a rather daft but it is OK to be a dick
      …otherwise half the rugby league players would be gone by lunchtime tomorrow 🙂

      speaking of which, the Warriors snotted tonight 50 to 6 by the Storm.
