    • Judiths book out today.

      Of course there is a list of people Key walked over.
      Brash, Clarkson, Ryall, Power, Airnz, and the best CEO that any NZ bank has ever had , the CEO of ANZ.
      Like politics he quit Airnz when he saw that the going was about to get tough. When will he quit ANZ and whatr will he do to their hard work?
      Sooner he buggers off on his world domination with his German mate the better.

      • Its interesting to see the difference with Muller.
        Tall person as with Trump.
        No short man syndrome to be bothered with. It really is a thing.
        Look at all the problematic pollies around. All short people.
        Cindy, Mallard, Muldoon, Lange, Bolger, et al. ( applies to local pollies as well.)
        An interesting trait and most would start the conversation with “I Think”.
        Never “we think.”
        Words matter.
        Perhaps taller people have a greater world view.

        Someone who I left of the list above was Fonterra. Remember the the way Key stuck his nose into that. Nasty little man. Not even his business in the first place.

          • True.
            But here is the intersting thing. His Deputy is and has the mana that tall men bring.
            NZ First MP Shane Jones said the fast-tracked RMA bill presented an “opportunity to get it done”.
            “It’s nauseating that after seven years the RMA process has failed to deliver on water security for Auckland. At its deepest level this is not about Māori rights, this is about the importance of access to water for a third of New Zealand’s population, which is a human right.

            “It may come to pass that in the short term we’ll receive rains akin to what floated Noah’s Ark, but the answer to Auckland’s water security lies neither in the Old Testament or in the Treaty of Waitangi.

            “We simply cannot tolerate a situation where the businesses, the hospitals, the households, the marae of Auckland are denied secure access to water because of either a bureaucratic bunion or iwi standover politics.”
            https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/300043704/fight-over-aucklands-access-to-waikato-river-water-moves-to-parliament?cid=facebook.post&fbclid=IwAR2H3Smtj8Nlaeb4gQI5I4hmL7PN-ijdbDCWzX9S6UXH-ZNmSJcZ_IR0iWE

            Now I know its not popular on here to mention Joines but he is actually getting stuff done where it matters. Peters is probably a gone burger but Jones doesn’t suffer short man syndrome and I could think he will will work well with Muller.

            • ……”he will will work well with Muller”……

              I doubt that he’ll get the chance. NZ First are heading down the toilet & Matt King has a death grip on the Northland seat which could save them.

              But generally I agree. Shane Jones has charisma & mana which is in short supply amongst the weirdos & misfits who currently blight the seats of Parliament.

              • The weird thing about the Northland seat is that Hone Carter held it forever and now King but the Nats did sweet fuck all for northland.
                Why are they so popular?
                I guess the Maori vote takes a few or they simply don’t vote.
                Not sure where todd has placed the whangarei guy on the list but suspect that its well up. He may not work hard for his seat if hew is a list MP and that would give Jones a look in.

      • Interesting timing by Judith Collins. I realise it was on the way before Muller took over, but launching it before the election seems a bit strange. In the end timing is about selling books, I suppose, but that would have been achieved by launching before Xmas, as well.
        But from the bit that has been released as part of the promo (in the link) suggests it will be a good read.

    Labor MP raided as part of major counter-espionage investigation

    A major investigation has been launched into allegations Chinese government agents have infiltrated the political office of a NSW Labor MP.

    The Australian Federal Police this morning raided the Sydney home of NSW Labor MP Shaoquett Moselmane, including a number of his vehicles, and is now attempting to raid his parliamentary office.

    Mr Moselmane has found himself in hot water over a series of controversial comments relating to China, including praising the regime’s handling of the coronavirus crisis.

    • At least 3 of NZ’s universities are tied in with the “Confucius Institutes” and as wg says, “sold their souls”.

      ~ U.S. senators passed a new bill to focus on concerns with Confucius Institutes blocking speech critical of China on U.S. college campuses.
      ~ The act was passed by unanimous consent.

      “But, the problem is that they [Confucius Institutes] report, Han Ban reports to the Politburo.
      It is a Communist party-run institute and what they try to do is export the censorship that the Communist party imposes on the Chinese people, they are trying to export it to the United States,” Gonzalez explained.

      “So, there is something obviously very wrong with that and we don’t know what is inside these little secret contracts.
      But, it is clear from everything here is that any mention of the three T’s; Tibet, Taiwan, or Tiananmen is not allowed to happen.”

      “All of these institutes, the Chinese Communist Party behaving in a repressive manner and they have all the money in the world, then giving these colleges a lot of money in exchange for what appears to be censorship,” he added.

      The US can see & recognize the control that the CCP is trying to do.
      When will the the NZ government also recognize these problems and make people more aware of these problems.

  4. WASHINGTON – A college degree will no longer give Americans a leg up when seeking some jobs with the federal government.

    President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Friday that will overhaul the government’s hiring practices so that a job applicant’s skills will be given priority over a college degree.

    Administration officials say the shift will allow the government to hire a more inclusive workforce based on skill instead of a person’s education level.

    “This will ensure that we’re able to hire based on talent and expand our universe to qualified candidates and ensure a more equitable hiring process,” Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter and senior advisor, told reporters on Friday.

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2020/06/26/trump-executive-order-stresses-skill-over-college-degree-hiring/3263074001/?fbclid=IwAR0FvSrRfrnPBlmCIaznq40vu8s1HeV97eul7p43SsAM4lP4gMdFR1NZyzI

    The shift in hiring protocols will recognize the value of learning regardless of whether it occurs on the job or in the classroom, said Brooke Rollins, acting director of the White House Domestic Policy Council, which oversees the president’s domestic agend

    • But Helen Clark decreed in the 1990’s “NZ needed a higher wage economy and everyone needs to go to university.” She named this “The Knowledge Wave”. It was the beginning of universities bulging with low to average IQ students who previously would never have been accepted to these once revered institutions of higher education. Many of these kids have gone onto have large student debt around their necks while only managing to find average paying jobs that don’t require a university degree in the first place.

      I thought at the time Clarkula was dismissive of a large proportion of the population who have practical skills and don’t require “higher learning” to achieve in life like the plumbers, sparkies and other trades who have gone on to run their own companies. The clever inventors who have struck it rich, the small business owners, etc, etc, etc, and the workers who have stuck it out and are now financially set up and enjoying their lives and families.

      • Get a degree in sports management at Otago woke-centre and end up securing harnesses at the Queenstown Hackett Bungy jump operation.

        Result.
        -Lots of partying and alcohol
        -High rent near Queenstown
        -Saving at end of week – zero or less and call the bank of mum and dad
        -Little reduction of student loan
        -no prospects

        Wake up at 28 years of age and realise the last 10 years have been a waste.
        Instead of ‘partying’ being a weekend hobby while you get on with life, it IS the life.
        2 years until your thirties.
        Ooops. Back to Uni to study -again- law or commerce or something that opens up a career.

        This is an actual observation a friend’s on who woke up 2 years ago.
        Now working and studying commerce part time.
        The next five years at least will be hard yakka and maybe nearly thirty five when he qualifies.
        Now, had he done commerce when 18 yo with few commitments and distractions he could have been on good coin by 25 and done some OE with a marketable qualification and enter the housing market

        ….repeated so many times by an over-liberal approach to kids born post 1988.

        Adolescence ended by 14 y.o. 100 years ago.
        50 years ago it ended about 16-18 yrs old
        Now it can run to nearly 30 years of age.

        So many of them out there with crapola in Art History, Gender studies and such bollocks.

        It has been a job creation scheme for University lecturers like the old PEPS and STEPS under Muldoon. But the Uni wankers are too arrogant to admit it.
        They have been ‘make work’ bunnies.
        Too much time on their hands to cause trouble as well.
        The Clayton Weatherson’s of the world.

        The anti ‘trades’ drive has been very damaging.
        Klarkenfuhrer was a real criminal in that department.

        So we still import trades people to do the work – as if the Christchurch earthquake 10 years ago was not a lesson.

        How did the economy shift in 50 years?
        >Lower echelon – Shanes couzies on the couch. Well paid with their UBI/dole plus extra from selling drugs plus burglaries – which the cops will not even address.
        >Next- for lower jobs filled 50 years ago by kiwis- import the labour
        >Then : – over-educate fools with uni degrees with a double major in Shite and Bollocks and 40% of the economy is central and local Govt employment so they get soaked up like spilt ink into a blotter and levered gently into warm desks -then bitch and moan they are better that this; when quite the opposite is the fact.

        Then ask why NZ productivity is ghastly ??

    • Yeah – putting aside the “chinky-sounding names” routine with housing in 2016 – I think Labour are basically an arm of the CCP. When US intelligence services are saying Labour is funded by CCP and Cindy runs away from the podium rather than comment on Chinese human rights abuses – it’s hard not to see them as the real threat. Who is behind WuFlu – CCP! Who is behind the rioting in the US – CCP backing up Soros. Who is running most of the DNC leadership as foreign agents – CCP (DIanne Fienstein’s driver of 8 years was a CCP military officer (ie spy). Who is preparing for expansion all around their regional theatre – CCP. Who’s regional theatre is NZ in? That’s right CCP.

      Key is bought and paid for. He is a whore who will spread his bum cheeks for whoever pays him. He ate pizza with Obama on a regular basis or played “golf” or what the fuck ever. Key was just a continuation of Helen Clark’s creeping communism. If you listen and believe him – then maybe you pointing the finger and directing blame the wrong way.

      Their food supply is so corrupted by their citizens taking short cuts.
      Remember the melamine in their infant formular? That resulted in the middle class just about revolting against the CCP.

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2020/06/tobacco-law-changes-will-see-stricter-border-rules-from-next-week.html

    From Wednesday tobacco products, leaf and refuse will become prohibited imports, meaning people on the receiving end will need a free permit first or it will be seized and destroyed.

    Customs hopes the change will allow it to act “quicker and more efficiently” on parcels containing cigarettes, because it will be able to see which are not going to legitimate retailers.

    Northern Ports manager Mark O’Toole said it will also allow Customs to check manufacturers are licensed and paying excise tax on tobacco leaf, after the Government missed out on an estimated $10.8 million in the past year.

      • Detective Inspector Rob Pope took over the police investigation, and decided within two weeks that Picton resident Scott Watson was the unknown man, although Watson was clean shaven, had short hair, and owned a single-masted steel sloop, Blade.[7]

        A few days after he arrived in Marlborough, with hundreds of witnesses still to interview, Pope stated: “We can be fairly certain that this (two-masted) ketch does not exist.” He said Watson “had the right sort of agenda and pedigree”, apparently referring to his criminal record. Watson had 48 criminal convictions at the time,[9][10] mainly from when he was a teenager, for burglary, theft, cannabis offences, two counts of possessing an offensive weapon, and one of assault when he was 16. He had been imprisoned for two short periods in 1989 and 1990, but had just one minor conviction in the eight years leading up to 1998.[11]

        Just like Arthur Thomas, it was a set up by the cops to get the easiest conviction. By going after a petty criminal they thought they would succeed.

  18. David Seymour, Paul Goldsmith condemn Green Party’s wealth tax plans
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/06/david-seymour-paul-goldsmith-condemn-green-party-s-wealth-tax-plans.html

    David Seymour and Paul Goldsmith have come out swinging against the Green Party’s “transformational” proposal to tackle inequality and reform welfare.

    The income taxes would kick in at 37 percent at $100,000 and 42 percent at $150,000. There would also be a 1 percent tax on net assets over $1 million and 2 percent over $2 million – excluding mortgaged houses and household goods worth less than $50,000.

    But ACT Party leader Seymour warns this will send New Zealand in the wrong direction.

    “At a time when we need to get New Zealanders back to work, the Greens want to suck the life out of the economy by taxing successful people harder and creating even more welfare dependency,” Seymour told Newshub.

    And National’s Finance spokesperson Goldsmith says we need our small businesses to invest and create more jobs – not tax them more.

    “Rather than celebrating Kiwis doing well, the Greens seem to want to punish them,” he says in a statement.

      Where do business assets fit into this? A farm might be $5 or10m with a woeful return on capital of maybe 2%. Same with many rental properties. It will drive them our of business, or maybe that is the plan.

    ACT Party candidate Nicole McKee wants ‘commonsense and practicalities’ brought back into Government
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/06/act-party-candidate-nicole-mckee-wants-commonsense-and-practicalities-brought-back-into-government.html

    Since the Christchurch shooting last year, she’s frequently appeared in the media to criticise the Government’s gun reforms and the speed at which they were passed.

    “I’ve been watching the erosion of a democratic process with our legislation over the last three years, and it’s become incredibly frustrating to be one of those persons on the outside,” she told Newshub.

    She believes New Zealand’s laws should be rooted in policies that recognise the democratic rights to think, speak and behave in a legal and unobstructed way.

    “I thought I can’t make any change from the outside and I want to be a voice on the inside. Really, it became a no-brainer [to run for ACT]. When I looked at ACT’s policies, I could relate to those, I can relate to the values and principles of the party.”

  21. There have been calls for green reflective dots on sign posts to be utilised nationwide after a road-safety advocate promoted their meaning.

    Ken Wilson and his wife, Jenny, are the founders of Truck Friendly, a road safety initiative which provides vital information for caravaners and how they can share the roads safely with trucks and other motorists.

    Earlier this week, Truck Friendly shared a series of photos to Facebook, of green reflective dots on sign posts along the Bernard Highway in Bundaberg, Queensland..

    “Need a place to pull over to let faster traffic pass?” it reads on Facebook.

    “These green reflectors will help you find a safe place.”

  25. Now where does the truth sit with this? fake?
    Plenty of others have reported this as news, but I have tried to pick on a source, that seems to cover a number of sources, so that is some truth may be in there, despite how it is covered.

    “The truly shocking revelation that if the Times report is true, and I emphasize that again, is that President Trump, the commander in chief of American troops serving in a dangerous theater of war, has known about this for months, according to the Times, and done worse than nothing,”
    Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, said during a virtual town hall.

    The White House said neither Trump nor Vice President Mike Pence was briefed on such intelligence.
    “This does not speak to the merit of the alleged intelligence but to the inaccuracy of the New York Times story erroneously suggesting that President Trump was briefed on this matter,” press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said in a statement.

    ‘Propagandists’ slammed

    Russia called the report “nonsense.”

    “This unsophisticated plant clearly illustrates the low intellectual abilities of the propagandists of American intelligence, who instead of inventing something more plausible have to make up this nonsense,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

    The Times quoted a Taliban spokesman denying that its militants have such a deal with the Russian intelligence agency.

    • I wonder who President Harry Truman was speaking to. Who was his audience?

      One needs to study Harry Truman’s background to appreciate his words in context.

      “His parents, Truman recalled, were “a violently unreconstructed southern family” and “Lincoln haters.” His mother was an ardent admirer of William Quantrill, the Confederate guerrilla leader who, pillaging Lawrence, Kansas, in 1863, slew at least one hundred and fifty of its citizens, including women and children. One historian has called him “the bloodiest man in American history.” Ref: https://www.americanheritage.com/conversion-harry-truman
