    • Even better. The articles on it have been scrubbed clean from the opening site pages and no other commentary to be seen. Amazing how the positive articles on Ardern and the negative ones on her opposition remain there for weeks.

  2. Tears flowed as a man responsible for transporting large quantities of methamphetamine from Auckland to be sold in Rotorua was handed a lengthy jail sentence.

    Whānau and supporters of Paul Tamai, 58, from Ngongotahā packed the public gallery at Rotorua District Court yesterday to hear Tamai’s fate.

    The sentencing hearing before Judge Phillip Cooper started and ended with a karakia and there was rousing haka, which a tearful Tamai took part in after apologising to the judge and the court for his offending.

    Tamai had earlier pleaded guilty to 17 methamphetamine charges.

    The charges included six of possession of a Class-A drug for Supply and 11 of supplying or offering to supply a Class-A drug plus unlawful possession of ammunition.

    • The tribe can do no wrong. This means noone will stand up to abuses within the tribe. By implication, the leadership of the tribe is corrupt.

      • A conspiracy of genetic and cultural factors.
        There must surely be no more “100% pure” Maori left alive. Over time, the percentage of the “warrior gene” (or whatever you want to call it) will be competing with more and more genotypes.
        The tribalism, however, will remain.

    • Red skins???? There is a good corrective name for them!

      Dear Mr. Page:

      I agree with our Native American population. I am highly jilted by the racially charged name of the Washington Redskins. One might argue that to name a professional football team after Native Americans would exalt them as fine warriors, but nay, nay. We must be careful not to offend, and in the spirit of political correctness and courtesy, we must move forward. Let’s ditch the Kansas City Chiefs, the Atlanta Braves and the Cleveland Indians.
      If your shorts are in a wad because of the reference the name Redskins makes to skin color, then we need to get rid of the Cleveland Browns.
      The Carolina Panthers obviously were named to keep the memory of militant Blacks from the 60’s alive. Gone. It’s offensive to white folk.

      The New York Yankees offend the Southern population. Do you see a team named for the Confederacy? No! There is no room for any reference to that tragic war that cost this country so many young men’s lives. I am also offended by the blatant references to the Catholic religion among our sports team names.
      Totally inappropriate to have the New Orleans Saints, the Los Angeles Angels or the San Diego Padres.

      Then there are the team names that glorify criminals who raped and pillaged.
      We are talking about the horrible Oakland Raiders, the Minnesota Vikings, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Pittsburgh Pirates!

      Now, let us address those teams that clearly send the wrong message to our children.
      The San Diego Chargers promote irresponsible fighting or even spending habits. Wrong message to our children.
      The New York Giants and the San Francisco Giants promote obesity, a growing childhood epidemic. Wrong message to our children. The Cincinnati Reds promote downers/barbiturates. Wrong message to our children.

      The Milwaukee Brewers. Well that goes without saying. Wrong message to our children.
      So, there you go. We need to support any legislation that comes out to rectify this travesty, because the government will likely become involved with this issue, as they should. Just the kind of thing the do-nothing Congress loves.

      As a die-hard Oregon State fan, my wife and I, with all of this in mind, suggest it might also make some sense to change the name of the Oregon State women’s athletic teams to something other than “the Beavers (especially when they play Southern California. Do we really want the Trojans sticking it to the Beavers?

      I always love your articles and I generally agree with them.
      As for the Redskins name I would suggest they change the name to the “Foreskins” to better represent their community, paying tribute to the dick heads in Washington DC.

        Oh National leadership are so pathetic. If ACT don’t fly ahead with this I would be very shocked. Hope that Judith has a go now she would not put up with crap from the candidates. Hope Niki goes as well. Simon may take it back though I guess he is enjoying his time as an MP with no responsibility. The Gods wept. Would have said Jesus but didn’t want to upset nasska

  6. Why apologise for using the ‘They Are Us’? Tahr have been in NZ for over 100 years. They are as much NZ fauna as any of us.

    The Tahr Foundation has apologised for any offence taken after adopting the lobby slogan ‘They Are Us’.

    However, the foundation wants people to regard tahr as a special part of the country, because they have lived in New Zealand for more than a century.

  7. Covid-19 cases in Tokyo are being detected at a high rate of around 120-150 a day. People aged under 40 account for 70% of these new cases.
    All-Japan Covid-19 deaths are very low. https://www.coronatracker.com/country/japan/
    Only 0.1% of total cases are currently being treated in ICU, and these may well be the elderly aged 80+ years (no data).

    Seems like a bad form of flu, if you ask me.

  9. Trying to enact a George Floyd.
    There is a market coming up for good Paddy wagons and gurneys.
    Another seeking victim hood, to waste police time, or to get a compensatory payout.

    Basically a waste of time to watch, but worth reading the full description of the event, and the charges prior, and of this event.

    “Bodycam Captures Suspect Trying To Flee From Police Officers While Handcuffed”
    https://youtu.be/R1tk9x8JHOc
    34 minutes 19 secs.
    Read the description

    @ 6 min 10 he attempts to flee, and so is soon tackled to the ground
    7 min 35 try to aid him into back seat.
    9 min 35 eels his way through the other side.
    14 min invokes pacemaker.
    14 : 35 ambulance invoked.
    17 : 20 Big mumma aunty is in the pic.
    29 : 50 No water until a proper medical assesement.

    What a carry on, and will bleed out an economy with that carry on.
    The number of police, the cars, the ambulance, the First Aiders,

    This is why a cop will never believe, when it is claimed they can not breathe.

    Immediate solution is the man in the white coat, with the needle, just being pushed in, Ok tick the boxes for everything else, health & safety etc….then loaded on a gurney and then racked into a van/paddy wagon.
    Come-to in the padded cell. 🙂
    It seems that many crimes are being treated as health issues anyway. 🙁

      • Odakyu-sen, I believe in part are right, though many also pull the wool over the Doctor’s eyes as well.
        The worst part is how other “do-gooders” harness this for their “virtual signal”.
        Then another lot, that seek to convert it to their power & so control society.

        There are some parts of rehabilitation I am in agreement with, that is teaching to read.
        Books, knowledge, though it can be a 2 edge sword, can also bring freedom, in part by understanding themselves, and to bring other ideas. A freedom.

        To learn about the power of money, and how to harness that through budgeting.
        What is a “need” and what is a “want” and how to prioritize.
        That helps to achieving freedom.
        A bit of a chicken or egg, to obtain a job, to then get the money.

        For some, setting up an understanding, accountability & responsibility of driving, to eventually get a drivers licence. A freedom of travel.

  11. Bastille Day
    14 Juillet.
    The day Simpering Todd Muller got stormed.

    …The French National Day is the anniversary of Storming of the Bastille on 14 July 1789, a turning point of the French Revolution, as well as the Fête de la Fédération which celebrated the unity of the French people on 14 July 1790…

    In many respects this is a Bastille Day to the Labour party.
    ‘Fête nationale’ – to them, a célébration of Nationale being stormed – by themselves
    Replace Napoleon with Ardoom to see the future.

    Who can forget the turnaround in 1979.
    The All Blacks comfortably beat the French at Lancaster park.
    Then the French played the All Blacks at Eden park on Bastille Day .
    The way the French played that day no-one could have beaten them.
    A great game of rugby union.

  12. The new system has ways to “rule them all” as it kindly demands to get with the program, to sell your soul, to become another zombie, or ……

    Last month, the City of Seattle’s Office of Civil Rights sent an email inviting “white City employees” to attend a training session on “Interrupting Internalized Racial Superiority and Whiteness,” a program designed to help white workers examine their “complicity in the system of white supremacy” and “interrupt racism in ways that are accountable to Black, Indigenous and People of Color.” ….

    ….. white people have internalized a sense of racial superiority, which has made them unable to access their “humanity” and caused “harm and violence” to people of color.
    The trainers claim that “individualism,” “perfectionism,” “intellectualization,” and “objectivity” are all vestiges of this internalized racial oppression and must be abandoned in favor of social-justice principles. ….

    ….. encourage white employees to “practice self-talk that affirms [their] complicity in racism” and work on “undoing [their] own whiteness.”
    As part of this process, white employees must abandon their “white normative behavior” and learn to let go of their “comfort,” “physical safety,” “social status,” and “relationships with some other white people.”

    https://www.city-journal.org/seattle-interrupting-whiteness-training

    NZ’s academia, media, and through the educational system has done a lot of that work in New Zealand, putting it into local government bureacracies, companies, and corporations also.
    So many of NZ systems have already worked this, and now all it needs is a quick flip over to do the rest. 🙁

  13. More “openness and transparency” from the powers that be.

    Police introduce new fleet of unmarked vehicles
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2020/07/police-introduce-new-fleet-of-unmarked-vehicles.html

    Police are introducing a new fleet of unmarked vehicles – and motorists are warned any car around them could now be police.

    Over the next three months, 24 unmarked Holden Equinox vehicles will start patrolling the roads to deter risky driving. The vehicles will come in a range of colours to blend in with any other car on the road.

    • yeah right, a transparent government.

      I guess by law one is supposed to stop for a vechicle with flashing red and blue lights, that is supposedly a marked vechicle but should one take the risk when alone, and on a dark night, or an isolated place on the side of the road.

      Just maybe keep on driving to a police station, or a very public and lit place before coming to a complete stop for your own protection.

      Others have ursurped powers to way lay travellers with supposed police approval to set up road blocks, and nor would I come to a complete stop for them,
      PM Ardern then said, all are CoVid-19 carriers, placing you at risk.
      So no stopping! 🙂

  14. Three searches undertaken in wake of Christchurch terrorist attack were unlawful – police watchdog

    Police who searched the homes or workplaces of people identified as “people of interest to national security” following the Christchurch terrorist attack last year were unlawful in doing so, according to the Independent Police Conduct Authority.
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/three-searches-undertaken-police-in-wake-christchurch-terrorist-attack-were-unlawful-watchdog-finds?auto=6171373624001

    However, in his ruling, authority chairman Judge Colin Doherty recognised that police were operating in an environment of unprecedented and heightened risk following the attacks in which 51 people were killed, and that there was a public expectation they take action to mitigate any further risks.

    “It was therefore entirely appropriate that they set up an operation to eliminate or mitigate risk of further violence and ensure public safety,” he said.

    He added, though, “it is evident that in relation to these three searches, they did not give sufficient consideration to their legal powers of search and seizure”.

      Like “emergency powers”? read the “riot act”? 🙂
      Put on a “war footing”?

      Did the police even try to use a Judge for the warrants so that they were legal?

      So Ardern missed out on all those possible steps. 🙁
      But typically uses others to cover those missed brush strokes.

    • Just had an e mail from Michael Dowling (COLFO) in which he says he has made the following comments to the media today:

      “Senior Police made major mistakes, broke the law and endangered lives because they let emotions get the better of them.

      “These were not actions made with the best of intentions, but the basest of intentions – hostility toward a specific group of people.

      “Their raids unnecessarily created highly volatile and aggressive situations involving ordinary citizens who had no connection to the Mosque shootings and posed no imminent danger to society.

      “These weren’t just mistakes of the moment – these were raids organised and conducted by senior Police detectives mainly based on Facebook comments of their targets. In one case, the comments simply indicated opposition to the Government’s new firearm ban.”

      • targeting people of interest to national security after the 15 March attacks last year.
        https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/national/421172/three-police-searches-after-christchurch-mosque-attacks-deemed-unlawful

        Those raids were done weeks after the shootings! just admitted on Red radio checkpoint program.
        They had the time to get proper warrants and to be properly approved.
        The Surveillance Act point is when there is a need for an immediate response.
        Still there is no accountability for even that in the 3rd raid.

        Always there is a censuring as far as they can get away with.

        And they expect drivers to stop on the road, for unmarked cars? 🙁
        How can they police judge when there is a breach of the law?

        “The things that are going to be blocked are not going to be fake stories.
        The things that are going to be blocked and censored,
        the things they are going to keep from people is going to be stuff they just don’t want you to focus on or know about.” — Melissa Dykes

  15. For anyone who didn’t see this piece of virtue signalling “look at me” rich listers in the news last night it is worth re-posting after hitting the msm.
    Why demand higher taxes when they are quite entitled to make a personal donation to the Inland Revenue department any time they like? IRD would be happy to accept Sir “virtue-signalling” Stephen Tindall’s donation whenever he deems to pay it. 🤨

    Kiwi richlisters Sir Stephen Tindall, Peter Torr Smith call for taxes on wealthy to be raised

    “Money that is desperately needed now and will continue to be needed in the years ahead, as our world recovers from this crisis.

    “Today, we, the undersigned millionaires, ask our governments to raise taxes on people like us. Immediately. Substantially. Permanently.”

    The lengthy letter goes on to point out the increased burdens COVID-19 will place on the world’s poorest people, contrasting those financial stresses with their own.

    “Unlike tens of millions of people around the world, we do not have to worry about losing our jobs, our homes, or our ability to support our families,” the letter reads.

    “We are not fighting on the frontlines of this emergency and we are much less likely to be its victims. So please. Tax us. Tax us. Tax us.

      But still socialists at heart, as they are really “crony capitalists” and now in differing ways will want the government to protect their business set ups, from any competition and to make it difficult for any start-ups.

  16. I just received this by e mail, some of you may have seen it already.
    The following appears to be quite similar to this published report which I found without difficulty:
    https://lawandcrime.com/geo

    The George Floyd autopsy report is out.

    The report is 20 pages long, and it is detailed.
    The autopsy was performed by a board-certified forensic pathologist and reviewed by a second board-certified forensic pathologist prior to release.
    The autopsy was thorough, the report fair, and unbiased.

    The first thing that jumps out when reading the Floyd autopsy report: “No life-threatening injuries were identified”. That is a direct quote.
    There were no facial, oral mucosal, or conjunctival petechiae noted.
    Most people have never heard the word Petechiae.

    Petechiae is a pinhead size red or purple spot on the surface of the skin which is the result of tiny ruptures in blood vessels resulting in haemorrhage just below the skin.
    Petechiae are normal and expected when air and blood flow are cut off at the neck by any mechanism.
    The eyes are the best place see petechiae.
    If you cut off blood circulation, blood pressure spikes up which breaks blood vessels, and that causes petechiae.

    The pathologist that did the autopsy dissected George Floyd’s neck muscles layer by layer.
    The dissection did not find any contusion or haemorrhage in any of the muscles.
    If Derek Chauvin’s knee on George Floyd’s neck cut off blood flow, the pressure would have ruptured blood vessels, which would have caused bleeding into the surrounding tissue.
    The bleeding would have been massive and visible to the naked eye.
    There was no bleeding into neck tissue.

    If Chauvin’s knee cut off Floyd’s air supply, the pressure would have broken the oesophageal cartilage. That is 100% certain.
    Place your thumb and index on your oesophagus. Press backward into your neck.
    When you get as far back as you can comfortably push, lock your fingers, pull them out and look how big your oesophagus actually is.
    You don’t collapse the oesophagus to the point of cutting off air flow without breaking the cartilage.

    In a forensic autopsy, the pathologist examines the oesophagus in place, then removes the entire oesophagus and cuts the entire length open and examines the inside.
    Floyd’s neck and oesophagus did not have any trauma.
    The thyroid cartilage and hyoid bone were both intact and unbroken.
    The cervical spinal column was palpably stable and free of haemorrhage.
    The anterior muscles of neck and laryngeal structures were trauma free.
    That means Chauvin’s knee did not cause any trauma to any part off the neck.
    There was no scalp soft tissue, skull, or brain trauma noted.

    There were no chest wall soft tissue injuries, vertebral column injuries, or visceral injuries.
    That means Floyd’s internal organs did not show any trauma.
    Floyd did have a single rib fracture from CPR. That is normal.
    The pathologist rolled Floyd’s body over and incision the posterior and lateral neck, shoulders, back, flanks, and buttocks looking for deep tissue trauma.
    There was no trauma present.

    The pathologist did observe cutaneous injuries to the forehead, face, upper lip, the mucosal injuries of the lips, cutaneous injuries to the shoulders, hands, elbows, and legs.
    Cutaneous injuries are confined to the skin. Some of the injuries were healing and happened before Floyd’s arrest.
    The rest were probably the result of scraping contact with pavement during the arrest.
    There was no trauma below the skin.
    The pathologist noted and documented patterned contusions and abrasions to the wrists consistent with handcuffs.

    If you watched the video, you can hear Floyd saying he can’t breathe.
    If you can’t breathe, you can’t say you can’t breathe.
    Why is that is so hard to understand.
    The autopsy established that Floyd had a history of hypertension, hypertensive heart disease, severe arteriosclerotic heart disease, and an enlarged heart.

    Floyd had a left pelvic tumor which did not contribute to his death. Floyd tested positive for COVID 19.
    Toxicology puts the nail in the coffin of Ellison’s murder charge.
    The individual that called 911 said that Floyd was extremely drunk and not in control of himself.
    On one video, Floyd’s legs buckled and he fell beside a squad car.
    That shows a loss of control. Floyd tested positive for Fentanyl 11 ng/mL.
    Blood concentrations of 7 ng/ml have been associated with fatalities where multi drugs were used.
    Floyd was a multiple drug user.

    Floyd tested positive for Norfentanyl at 5.6 ng/mL a metabolite of Fentanyl.
    NOTE: The body metabolizes Fentanyl into Norfentanyl.
    Floyd tested positive for 4-ANPP 0.65 ng/mL. 4-ANPP is an intermediate in the synthesis of fentanyl and related opioids and is often found as an impurity in fentanyl preparations.

    A urine drug screen confirmation 86 ng/mL of free morphine.
    (NOTE: The body metabolizes opioids like Fentanyl into morphine.)

    Floyd tested positive for 11-Hydroxy Delta-9 THC 1.2 ng/mL; Delta-9 Carboxy THC 42 ng/mL; Delta-9 THC 2.9 ng/mL.
    That means he smoked weed.

    Floyd tested positive for Caffeine.
    Apparently Floyd ate No-Doz by the handful and slugged down 5-hour Energy Drinks, which are caffeine based.
    Caffeine may seem harmless, but it is a stimulant that increases heart rate and spikes blood pressure up.
    People with hypertension should limit their caffeine intake.
    Floyd apparently did not limit his caffeine intake.

    Floyd had 19 ng/mL of Methamphetamine in his system.
    Methamphetamine can cause confusion, hallucinations, convulsions, and circulatory collapse.
    A man with high blood pressure and heart disease should not be getting high on Meth.

    There is one more section in the autopsy report that precludes murder charges:
    The microscopic examination.

    The pathologist doing the autopsy takes multiple tissue samples from each organ in the body.
    The samples are sent into one end of Histology and come out the other end as slides that a pathologist can examine at the cellular level under a microscope.

    Seven slides of George Floyd’s liver showed marked congestion.
    Eight slides of his kidney showed marked congestion.
    Nine slides of Floyd’s adrenal glands showed marked congestion.
    Nine slides of his spleen showed marked congestion.
    Marked used in this context means evident and clearly noticeable.

    The most important slides, the slides with the big picture, concern Floyd’s brain.

    The pathologist that did the autopsy took tissue sections from Floyd’s hippocampus, cerebellum, cerebral cortex, and midbrain.
    The microscopic architecture of Floyd’s brain was normal.
    The slides did not show any sign of hypoxic – ischemia, or reactive, neoplastic, or inflammatory changes.

    Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy is the result of a lack of oxygen to the brain. The lack of oxygen quickly damages brain cells.
    Floyd’s brain cells did not show any hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy. None.
    Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy is present in all strangulations.

    That blows up the narrative that Derek Chauvin choked George Floyd to death, on video for all the world to see.
    The slides of Floyd’s brain disprove what people think they saw in the video of Floyd’s arrest.
    The video looks bad, but Chauvin’s actions did not kill Floyd.

  17. Enormous level of greed’ – Chatham Islands man sentenced for unreported shellfish worth over $800k

    A Chatham Islands fisherman has been sentenced over a large quantity of unreported shellfish, valued at over $800,000.
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/enormous-level-greed-chatham-islands-man-sentenced-unreported-shellfish-worth-over-800k

    Kevin Huia Clarke, 73, a commercial fisherman appeared in the Wellington District Court for sentencing on four fisheries charges today.

    He has been sentenced to nine months home detention and 200 hours community work over unreported shellfish he’d caught, including pāua, valued at over $800,000.

    His fishing boats, worth around $110,000 have also been forfeited along with other property of his, including holding pots valued at $700.

    Gary Orr, director of compliance services at the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI), says the scale of Mr Clarke’s offending displayed an “enormous level of greed and disregard for the rules”.

    Mr Clarke had caught and landed 22.2 tonnes of shellfish with a value of over $1,600,000, half of which was unreported.

  19. Africa to Become Testing Ground for “Trust Stamp” Vaccine Record and Payment System

    In early June, GAVI reported that Mastercard’s Wellness Pass program would be adapted in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Around a month later, Mastercard announced that Trust Stamp’s biometric identity platform would be integrated into Wellness Pass as Trust Stamp’s system is capable of providing biometric identity in areas of the world lacking internet access or cellular connectivity and also does not require knowledge of an individual’s legal name or identity to function. The Wellness Program involving GAVI, Mastercard, and Trust Stamp will soon be launched in West Africa and will be coupled with a Covid-19 vaccination program once a vaccine becomes available.

  21. New Zealand Had No Warming In 130 Years, Then NASA ‘Fixed It’

    We continue to hear warming horror stories coming from the island of New Zealand, and the socialist by sales pitch how “climate change is the biggest challenge of our time.”

    Yet this doesn’t seem to be the case in New Zealand. For example, we learned from Electroverse here that the Pacific island country “just recorded its coldest June temperature in 5 years.”

    Moreover, when we examine NASA GISS data, we uncover where all the warming rumors come from: alterations to the recorded historical data.

    The following chart shows the data from Hokitika Aerodome, going back more 130 years (It’s the only NASA station that has data going back over 100 years). Plotted are the unadjusted Version 3 data and the Version 4 unadjusted:

      • Typo you filthy little freedom hating communist totalitarian Ed.

            • The old data set showed no warming, until NASA GISS went back and rewrote it Orwellian style, and made up a warming trend and called it Version 4.

              Tony Heller also reported earlier: “NASA didn’t like the fact that New Zealand wasn’t warming, so they simply changed the data.”

              In summary: There really hasn’t been that much change at many locations around the globe. In fact the real changes are taking place in the NASA GISS datasets.

  22. Zindzi Mandela, daughter of Nelson and Winnie Mandela, dead at 59

    A spokesperson for the Nelson Mandela Foundation told CNN it is currently consulting with the Mandela family before it issues its own statement.
    The foundation earlier posted that on the same day in 1969, Nelson Mandela’s eldest son, Madiba Thembekile Mandela, died in a car crash.
    A third sibling, Zenani Mandela-Dlamini, currently serves as South Africa’s ambassador to South Korea.

  23. There was once a great actor who could no longer remember his lines. After many years he finds a theatre where they are prepared to give him a chance to shine again.

    The director says, “This is the most important part, and it has only one line. You walk on to the stage at the opening carrying a rose. You hold the rose to your nose with just one finger and thumb, sniff the rose deeply and then say the line ‘Ah, the sweet aroma of my mistress.’

    The actor is thrilled. All day long before the play, he’s practising his line over and over again.

    Finally, the time comes. The curtain goes up, the actor walks onto the stage, and with great passion delivers the line, “Ah, the sweet aroma of my mistress.”The theatre erupts. The audience is screaming with laughter, but the director is steaming!”You bloody fool!” he cries. “You have ruined me!”

    The actor is bewildered, “What happened, did I forget my line?”

    “No!” screams the director. “You idiot! You forgot the rose!”

  24. DPF ran a poll on KB this morning inviting readers to vote for the person they wanted to take over from Muller. It shows:

    Judith Collins 67%
    Simon Bridges 12%
    Nikki Kaye 6%
    Mark Mitchell 6%
    Gerry Brownlee 4%
    Amy Adams 4%

    I wonder how far National will be out of step with the electorate when the results of their bunfight are announced.
