  1. https://www.nzherald.co.nz/world/news/article.cfm?c_id=2&objectid=12354158

    There are some assessments that are wrong. foreign policy being the major.
    He has won on Mexico, China, the Iran bombing dept. He hasn’t upset Russia.
    Mid term economy was good.
    With a couple of months to go if he settles down the covig, BLM violence and outs all the shit faces of Obama’s administration then the earthquake will go away.
    Lets just hope so.

    There also the other thought. Biden might be rest home material by the election. He’s about there now. And he doesn’t have a running mate yet.

    Would be interesting to apply the same criteria here if someone has the time.



  2. They’re prepping us for pandemic round two. It’s even been suggested that we have trial days where we all put on our masks. FS it’s not like having to respond to an earthquake or tsunami. This is either an admission that they don’t have faith in their border control, that it’s already in the community, or it’s a cynical, shameless political stunt. Or all of the above.



        • I saw that too on my wife’s TV. I was equally horrified!

          But are we being fair to this poor half-wit woman? Not everyone has our intellectual abilities!

          I hate to be an intellectual snob however I have a master’s degree in economics and am now retired. Since then I have completed a course in Sanskrit (2018), in ancient Greek (2019) and Sumerian cuneiform (2020) through the School of Ancient Languages in Auckland.

          Is it fair for us ‘bright ones’ to despise that dumb Jacinda-trusting bimbo?




          • “I hate to be an intellectual snob however I have a master’s degree in economics and am now retired. Since then I have completed a course in Sanskrit (2018), in ancient Greek (2019) and Sumerian cuneiform (2020) through the School of Ancient Languages in Auckland.”

            But you are happy to be an intellectual snob. 🙂

            Kind of undoes your theory when universities are the hotbed of intellectual Marxist snobs who manipulate society into the zealotry of communism.

            It doesn’t take a degree to see through Cindy and her bunch of incompetents. 🤨



          • That is so racist, Te Rauparaha
            Sanskrit (2018), in ancient Greek (2019) and Sumerian cuneiform

            but no Maori.
            With a name like that!!

            tut tut
            the people of Kapiti will not be amused.

            Now tell us about the wife’s TV and is it smaller than your TV?
            Are you sexist as well as racist?

            Hey I’m just catching up with the 2020’s blame game.
            Be Kind if I got that wrong 🙂



        • Does the woman have a sense of fear because:
          a) She has analyzed the situation logically, has Googled articles by the US CDC and other sources, and has concluded that her fear is justified and that mask wearing will bring significant health benefits.
          b) She does not have the wherewithall to make such an analysis, and so instead uses her “feelz” to jump directly to the conclusion of fear and then obedience to “those who know better” as the best way to go.



    • Well done to big Gerry yesterday for questioning Hipkins about about the Govt now talking about masks. He asked if the Govt. knew something that we don’t know yet and if so what is it. Hipkins told Gerry to take off his tin foil hat –the arrogant sod.
      Hipkins probably knew Gerry was right to conclude what he did and ask the question but had to make his school boy attempt to “blow it off”.



      • I simply do not understand how we could possibly get a second influx of the virus if the borders are kept under this government control? So are they saying there is far more community transmission than they are letting on? How could there be a second wave of the virus when people arriving in NZ are under quarantine? Something stinks in the state of Denmark (New Zealand) Fuckers lie to us all the time so I won’t be surprised at any lies they put out.



    • Just the fact that Hooten pushed to get that broken down old fool – what’s his name, can’t remember, bald geezer , as Leader of Notional in election year shows his nastiness and destructive nature.

      It was totally destructive action from a long term trouble-maker and great mate of ultra-commie, Laila Harre.

      With the likes of JL Ross, Hooten, Boag, Hamish Walker, et al Notional cannot see the Woods for the trees.
      And fook me, it is not like you cannot see Megan Woods from 2 kilometers away!!!



  3. National Rifle Association in the US sued by New York, Trump encourages Texas relocation

    In announcing the lawsuit, James told reporters the NRA “has operated as a breeding ground for greed, abuse and brazen illegality”. She added “no one is above the law”.

    The confrontation pits James, a Democrat, against the largest and most powerful gun organisation in the US, one that is closely aligned with President Donald Trump’s Republican Party.

    Speaking to reporters at the White House, Trump said Texas would be a great state for the group, which has its national headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia, about 30km west of Washington, DC, and is registered as a non-profit organisation in New York, where it conducts most of its financial transactions.

    James denied the suit was motivated by the NRA’s support for Trump.



      • Read a book once about texas succeeding after a shit president went rouge.
        Did a raid on the treasury in NY and got all of their gold back. Armed the borders and took over a nuclear sub and shit!
        Don’t mess with Texans!



        • I’m not sure about that.

          You might mean Seceded as in Secession.
          And went Rogue.
          Rouge is red and yes it was Demoncrat for a long time (LBJ came from there) but in the last 50 years it has tuned Republican party so yes, it went Red.

          Texas broke away from Mexico in 1836 and was an independent republic for 10 years then joined the USA but also joined the Confederacy for the duration of the Civil war.

          That story does not sound grounded, based on my recollection.



    • I am beginning to believe that the lunatic left are after a civil war.

      The level of out and out insanity can only be reconciled with provocation and almost daring Trump to fire the first shot. It’s what, 3 months until the election – can you imagine the continued escalation leading up to November? It already looks like a private army is operating in the US against the US people, I fully imagine them to be murdering white people in the White House lawn by the end of September and cutting up babies on national TV in October.

      Is there going to be repeat of India’s history, with partition into the heartland USA in the middle, Californistan on the West Coast and the BalkaNY on the East Coast?

      The fall of western civilisation is being driven by panty-waisted pencil neck soyboys. Who’d have thought they had it in them?



      • A couple of lines from Dire Straits song “Industrial Disease.”

        “they want to have a war to keep us on our knees”
        “they’re pointing out the enemy to keep you deaf and blind
        they want to sap your energy, incarcerate your mind.”



  4. Reposting this in case you missed Judith’s full reply where she saved her best zingers for Cindy at the closing of Parliament yesterday. Worth a listen to. Skip the first 10 minutes of a silly little girl waffling about pixie dust and glitter.

    Judith Collins rips into Labour’s team; Jacinda Ardern pays tribute to NZ First, Greens as Parliament wraps up



  5. A Kiwi expat living in London says Māori voices are not being heard in the debate on whether or not to charge returning New Zealanders for their Covid-19 managed isolation stay.

    They’re now making a last ditch bid to convince the Government not to implement the legislation, which is expected to come into force on Monday.

    Speaking from London, expat New Zealander Luke Claasen told TVNZ1’s Breakfast this morning: “There’s been little to no consultation with Māori.”



  6. The numbers of new detections of Covid-19 cases is increasing in Japan. The majority of the new cases in Tokyo are people in their 20s. The youth of Japan have figured out that they are not in mortal danger.

    In the meantime, the rate of deaths and the number of people in intensive care have hardly budged in a month.



      • The news reports tend to report on numbers of positive new detections. They rarely report on the number of tests performed or the age distribution of those people tested.
        In my opinion, the Japanese government is focusing on keeping the elderly safe. It is advising (not forcing) people of working age to take steps to minimize their risk of catching the virus.

        Here is one data source of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests for coronavirus (COVID-19) in Japan:

        Here is a very good summary of the Covid-19 situation in Japan.
        I draw your attention to the chart Tested Positive By Age on the right. It clearly shows which age group is dying.



        • “the Japanese government is focusing on keeping the elderly safe”

          A very sensible Government !!!

          The second link is a fantastic data summary. I bet if we submitted a request for similar information from the NZ Health authorities they would just roll their eyes and say it was too much work.



        • One word of caution in assuming that NZ or US death rates by age category would be the same as those in the Japanese chart Tested Positive By Age above.
          There is a significant difference between the data from Japan and that from the US. Japanese as a whole, and particularly the elderly, tend to have a BMI of below 25. Go to Tokyo and you will not see many fatties out in public. Maybe a couple in a thousand on the Tokyo streets.
          The situation is very, very different in Auckland. I was amazed at the obesity in Auckland among caucasians and horrified at the state of Polynesians. What are these people eating? Do they have no self-control? Is “huge” a status symbol in their culture?
          Medical experts in the States have pointed out there is a signifiant correlation between obesity and a much higher mortality rate in cases of Covid-19.

          Only 3.6 percent of Japanese have a body mass index (BMI) over 30, which is the international standard for obesity, whereas 32.0 percent of Americans do.



  7. ‘You’re probably not going to need him’: Simon Bridges says Labour won’t need Peters’ help if it wins election

    Asked on The AM Show if he thought Peters would rise from the ashes once again, Bridges was sceptical.

    “I don’t reckon. Voters have seen it all before – they’ve heard the schtick about immigration and so on. He gets in and doesn’t do any of it. I reckon even his traditional voters have turned channels.”



  8. Andrew Bolt had a couple of good interviews last night about the virus.

    First was a guy in the US that had “invented” a rapid testing kit and the company had got FDA and EU approvals for it. He showed how to use the kit on the show –just like doing a blood sugar test for people with diabetes. The result came back in about 5 minutes. So the guy said it could be used in the home, companies could test their employees all together say once a week etc etc.

    Then Bolt spoke to a dog trainer about how they trained dogs to pick up Covid –like they can for cancer, I presume.

    So we probably do not need the vaccines from Gates and co.



  9. “Danger, danger, danger Will Robertson”
    So it seems a warning has been put out.

    ….. “We advise students not to bring up topics [in discussion] that may endanger them, such as: Tiananmen Square; Uighar concentration camps; Hong Kong democracy; Taiwan; Tibet; Falun Gong; criticism of Xi Jinping, etc.,” said the lecturer in a post on Canvas (the equivalent of Blackboard at Auckland). …..
    ….. “We expect that Chinese governmental agents will have access to this material,” wrote the lecturer.


    Some of those students are financed for other purposes than just to study.

    So is it a tin hat conspiracy theory as the article in

    In China, personal links with Party leaders and other influential people are a way to cultivate success. In New Zealand, our institutions (courts, financial authorities etc.) work well and are independent.
    Recent migrants tend to assume otherwise, hence the push to be photographed standing with a prime minister or even a lowly backbencher.

    Is it a red under the bed? or is it glasses that are tinted rose red.

    A bit of power exerted over some students, but there are many ways to skin a cat.
    “Soft power” takes time, and done so that for a long time, that an unawareness of the length of leash ($?) that can be pulled up tight, when it is to gain control or to achieve a certain purpose, information? a vote? pressure others?



  10. “A moving police car was fired upon last night after a pursuit in the Auckland suburb of Manurewa.
    It is the third incident in a week in which an offender has allegedly presented a firearm at police.”

    Looks like those licensed firearm owners are playing up again. Has there ever been more gun crime than since the CoL took over?



  11. Is this what NZ has to look forward to?

    Woman pinned down by police, arrested for refusing to wear a mask in Melbourne

    Police say the woman and her daughter refused to give their names and explain why they weren’t wearing masks, which are mandatory under Victoria’s current COVID-19 restrictions.

    Video of the dramatic arrest, released on Thursday, shows police pinning the woman down as one officer says, “you need to take this seriously”.



  12. 25 year old has a wank in front of a child at a pool changing room. Told to stop but finished. Judge let’s him off without conviction, says “he was probably jet-lagged”. 😤
    What is happening to our justice system??!
    – from Magic Radio. On my phone so no link.



  13. Is there any truth in the rumour that Ardern has banned the importation of HCQ? Why in God’s name would she do that unless she wants more people to die than necessary?

    The latest international testing of hydroxychloroquine treatment of coronavirus shows countries that had early use of the drug had a 79% lower mortality rate than countries that banned the use of the safe malaria drug.

    This means that Dr. Fauci, Dr. Birx, the CDC, the liberal fake news media and the tech giants have been pushing a lie that has had deadly consequences!


    More info. just to hand:



  14. I don’t know if I should post this here.
    It will give the lefties ideas but they are probably on the path to control.
    The weak need to control others by manipulation.

    From history- and we know the Left don’t know history but when they get an inkling of actual history they like to ban it … and then re-present in their own likeness i.e. misery.

    This is how you manipulate people during an election – from the old master himself- Joh Bjelke-Petersen

    1971 state of emergency
    Bjelke-Petersen seized on the controversial visit of the Springboks, the South African rugby union team, in 1971 to consolidate his position as leader with a display of force.

    Springboks matches in southern states had already been disrupted by anti-apartheid demonstrations and a match in Brisbane was scheduled for 24 July 1971, the date of two Queensland by-elections.
    On 14 July Bjelke-Petersen declared a month-long state of emergency covering the entire state,
    giving the government almost unlimited power to quell what the government said was expected to be “a climax of violent demonstrations. Six hundred police were transported to Brisbane from elsewhere in the state.

    In the week before the match, 40 trade unions staged a 24-hour strike, protesting against the proclamation. A crowd of demonstrators also mounted a peaceful protest outside the Springboks’ Wickham Terrace motel and were chased on foot by police moments after being ordered to retreat, with many police attacking the crowd with batons, boots and fists.
    It was one of a series of violent attacks by police on demonstrators during the Springboks’ visit to Queensland.[21]
    The football game was played to a crowd of 7,000 behind a high barbed-wire fence without incident.[17]
    The state of emergency, which gave the government the appearance of being strong-willed and decisive, helped steer the government to victory in both by-elections held on match day.
    Police Special Branch member Don Lane was one of those elected, becoming a political ally of the Premier.

    Bjelke-Petersen praised police for their “restraint” during the demonstrations and rewarded the police union for its support with an extra week’s leave for every officer in the state.
    He described the tension over the Springboks’ tour as “great fun, a game of chess in the political arena”.

    The crisis, he said, “put me on the map”. [Ah yes, Very Cindy; never waste a good crisis]
    state of emergency during an election, reward the cops as thug enforcers, do it in the name of Laura Norder.
    Coming to a polling booth near you 2020?

    Lest we forget, I repeat the key sentence:
    “The state of emergency, which gave the government the appearance of being strong-willed and decisive, helped steer the government to victory in both by-elections held on match day. ”

    Keywords: Lockdown; state of emergency; for your own good; control; harsh penalty for resisting.
    You got the message, plebs.



  15. Maggie Pie over the road at kb@ 8.26 said there was a couple of dozen planes landed between 2am and 4am. In Melbourne. What or who did they bring?
    Sister in Melbourne knows nothing. But she did say that Bill Gates is moving to NZ and Hillary Clinton had been visiting. Wonder if Billy boy was here? Could have given some tips to Jethro!



  16. ‘Hi sweeties!’: Paula Bennett to host Magic Talk mornings for a week

    Former National Party deputy leader Paula Bennett will take to the airwaves as the host of Magic Talk’s morning programme next week while Peter Williams is on holiday.

    She’ll anchor the show between 9am – 12pm each weekday for the week beginning August 10.

    The Magic Mornings show includes several regular political interview slots that Paula will take over in Williams’ absence, which will see her grill Judith Collins, Winston Peters and Grant Robertson, among others.

    – Odds are Winston Peters won’t turn up for his weekly interview.



  17. National Party candidate hires QC to fight suggestions she was a stripper

    National’s Auckland Central selection process has been rocked by further controversy as a front-running candidate says she has been targeted by incorrect claims she used to be a stripper.

    Nuwanthie Samarakone has hired Julian Miles, QC, to fight an alleged “damaging, malicious and untrue campaign” against her.

    A letter written by Miles said: “The campaign even suggests she has been a stripper coupled with the clear, and vicious, imputation she has been involved in some sex scandal and likely to be involved again”.

    In a letter to two party members, Julian Miles, QC, said “my client has clear evidence that one or both of you instigated or have been involved in the campaign”, adding it had been inspired by one of the candidates’ failure to be short-listed.



  18. Eagle helicopter, swathes of police in high-speed pursuit of dangerous driver in west Auckland

    Two people have been arrested after a high-speed pursuit involving swathes of police cars and an Eagle helicopter in west Auckland.

    A police spokesperson told Newshub officers tried to stop the car on Triangle Rd, Massey on Friday afternoon, after being told a vehicle had been driving dangerously.

    But the driver refused, fleeing from police at pace and travelling north on State Highway 16 for more than 30km, past Helensville.

    Eventually the vehicle was spiked on the Kaipara Coast Highway – 53km away from where the pursuit had began – and the occupants exited the vehicle and fled on foot.

    They were soon apprehended and are now in custody.



  19. Remarks by President Trump at Whirlpool Corporation Manufacturing Plant

    “So I have a lot of enemies out there. This may be the last time you’ll see me for a while. A lot of very, very rich enemies, but they are not happy with what I’m doing. But I figure we have one chance to do it, and no other President is going to do what I do. No other President would do a favored nations, a rebate, a buy from other nations at much less cost. Nobody. And there are a lot of unhappy people, and they’re very rich people, and they’re very unhappy.”




  20. The Mask Slackers of 1918

    As the influenza pandemic swept across the United States in 1918 and 1919, masks took a role in political and cultural wars.


    A bit of history and a good read.

    Masks that looked like ‘slabs of ravioli’

    Resisters complained about appearance, comfort and freedom, even after the flu killed an estimated 195,000 Americans in October alone.



    • A good read Viking.
      History repeats, “…. ;and there is no new thing under the sun.”

      ……. The penalty for violators was $5 to $10, or 10 days’ imprisonment.
      On Nov. 9, 1,000 people were arrested, The San Francisco Chronicle reported.
      City prisons swelled to standing-room-only; police shifts and court sessions were added to help manage. ….

      …… end of 1918, the death toll from influenza had reached at least 244,681, mostly in the last four months, according to [US] government statistics. ….

      …..Dec. 17, 1918, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors reinstituted the mask ordinance after deaths started to climb, ….
      ….. third wave of flu rolled in late that year.
      The final death toll reached an estimated 675,000 nationwide, or 30 for every 1,000 people in San Francisco, making it one of the worst-hit cities in America. ……

      Another link to the same story as the above link wanted a “log in” to continue and this is an alternative.

      masks took a role in political and cultural wars. like the unmasked suffragettes. 🙂
      Was woman getting the vote, the beginnings of BLM? 🙁



  21. Judith Collins claims people feel ‘very segregated’ because of calls for more diversity

    “I think one of the things I felt was so awful recently, is when I was asked by media if I was worried about diversity in the National Party and I was in the frontbench,” Collins told the Te Awamutu locals.

    “I just said, ‘well, is there something wrong with me being white?’ That was like a bomb went off in media-land. I mean, the fact is, you are who you are and everybody needs to understand we’re all in it together.

    Collins said she had no plans to remove the Māori electorate seats, despite one of the locals suggesting it’s unfair because “we have politicians in Parliament there to represent Māori only”.

    “I know what you mean but I’m not actually going to fix that one. I’ve got to be honest about it, I won’t tell you I’ll fix something if I’m not going to. But I do think that the big thing is for Parliament to actually represent everybody,” Collins said.



  22. JAIL FAUCI: New Report Compares Turkey COVID Treatment with HCQ vs. USA Without HCQ and the Results Are Crystal Clear

    A new report was released by Sky News on Turkey’s COVID-19 Coronavirus early hydroxychloroquine treatment strategy and the results are clear.

    The early treatment program in Turkey relies on hydroxychloroquine as the first step in the therapeutic process.




    • There never ever was a partnership consideration when the Treaty of Waitangi was signed.
      The Crown would never enter a partnership agreement.

      The whiffy Geoffrey Palmer did not know what the principles meant, and “partnership” was revised into ‘a meaning’ that was never there.

      National and Act do not support the court finding that the treaty is akin to a partnership, unlike Labour, which views the treaty as a pact to be celebrated and which carries real obligations.

      “The concept of partnership has never been approved by Parliament,” Prebble said. “It has just been implemented by the civil service.”
      Court decisions flowing from an acceptance of “partnership” as applied to the treaty reflect a duty to consult and act in good faith.
      That has led to provisions for consultation being written more and more into law. …..

      …… Other principles are identified in various court decisions and Waitangi Tribunal reports and will continue to be identified, but the 1987 case produced the mother of all treaty principles – partnership.

      Even Sir Geoffrey said he had been surprised at the judgment. He told the Herald this week that the clause had had “unexpected consequences”.

      “It did come as somewhat of a surprise to me that the Court of Appeal read that phrase up rather than read it down,” he said, explaining that the court had given the clause “a very wide and generous interpretation”.

      Feb 2004

      A wrong there, does not mean the Treaty should go on in the new interpretation, as continuing on, is another wrong!
