  1. Morning all. Will there be any bars or restaurants left in Auckland when the vanity project lockdown designed to crush the people is finally over? I feel so sorry for all those people who used to have hospo jobs before Cindy threw them under the bus. Say no to the Ho.

  2. I feel sorry for all the retailers, restaurants, bars, cafe owners and workers its hard to imagine what they are going through at the moment. Their stress levels must be through the roof. Who would have thought this time last year we would all be in this state, the country would be in this state. Definitely say no to the ho.

    • All the schools and clubs are cancelling events flat out, and we are allowed to have 100 fleeceable victims up here. Even with that number, the amount of people you need to take the names and enforce the social distancing etc makes it a logistical nightmare. It’s going to be a bad year for fundraising. On a slightly different note, Heads FM out of Mangawhai are playing some brilliant covid piss take ads. They have got the condescending voice perfect and when you first hear it you have to think twice. They normally come on with the news.

      • My club says you have to sit down, server comes to you with food and drinks.
        Limit at table. So I stay home! Don’t have to spend my money that way if I don’t choose. Tough on jobs maybe, but it’s my money and I will spend it as I choose. Was talking here about wharehouse selves empty and the need to go to the high st, well I only go there for christmas and birthdays and they tell me that there are lots of empty shops. I shop at the building supermarket only!

  4. News of the World ho does puff piece on Covid Cindy

    Gutter journalism training ground News of the World got flushed under and New Zealand got one of their alumni – Po Ho Andrea Vance. She’s shown over the years that she’s not afraid to deploy her NOTW skills, batting her eyelashes at the walking vanity project (Peter Dunne nothing useful ever).

    Today, she’s trying to draw some kind of fake news equivalence between Covid Cindy and Maggie Thatcher (apparently both of them hated the nickname the gutter press – lol Andrea – gave them).

    For your information Andy (I bet you hate that too) Covid Cindy is not even equivalent to the toilet seat that Maggie shat through every day. If you are looking disrespect of an amazing woman – your article is a perfect example of it. Comparing a glove puppet like Covid Cindy with the Iron Lady is like comparing Andrea Vance to Joseph Pullitzer.

    You see, that’s what the point of the article was for! It’s not about the trivial issue of the name – what it’s really about is the ongoing psyop regarding Covid Cindy. Propaganda is based on saying the same lie, over and over again, so often that the sheeple in society start to believe it.

    We’re supposed to believe the lie that Cindy is a great female leader. We’re supposed to be programmed that a SLG – who doesn’t know the difference between GDP and Crown Financial Statements, a moron who over and over again mispronounces common words (WTF is “Jepradise”) – is in any way at the same level as the greatest UK PM of the 20th – a woman who smashed the glass ceiling, a woman ahead of her time on the EU disaster, a woman who led a country through a war, a woman who smashed the unions threatening to destroy the UK economy.

    Andrea, keep your bullshit NOTW fake news to yourself. Yes your entitled to your OpEd – but everyone is entitled to call you out for the pathetic attempt to pander to your paymasters. Why would anyone trust a failure who gets passed over by a lightweight like Mutch?

      • Thank you again TR for what you did yesterday. You are a legend in my book for that. My friend you have to be more careful about protecting your identity though, I believe the chances are greater than ever that we are descending into fascism – outspoken and easy to identify critics are the first ones to be punished.

        Also, looking at the footage of the march, I noticed that Maori were significantly over-represented (I thought closer to 25/30%) would that be a fair reflection of what you saw?

        I’m trying to get my head around that (well in terms of the media’s narrative anyway that Maori are predominantly Labour supporters).

        I haven’t formed an opinion about why this would be the case yet, but I’ve got a bunch of things that I’m mentally sorting through on this issue:
        – Covid is being used by Covid Cindy to subvert personal sovereignty (ie where Covid is concerned “my body my choice” is verboten) and sovereignty is an enduring issue for Maori
        – Covid Cindy is using Covid to remove freedoms – and Maori have a much richer and intimate experience of rights being extinguished
        – Maori have learned that the only way to deal with injustice is to speak up about it
        – Maori have learned that when your rights get taken away from you by motherfuckers, that it can take hundreds of years to get them back
        – Maori have learned through their history that when some pale-faced motherfucker tells you they are doing evil shit to you “because they have your best interests at heart” that you are about to get royally fucked over

        In short, are Maori ahead of the curve on Covid Cindy’s excesses compared to the rest of the population?

    • What a load of absolute drivel by Vance. My brain is dumber for having read it. Men get called all sorts of nicknames including diminutives, whether they like them or not. So it is hardly “paternalistic”. Leftards frequently called Bill English “Billy”, especially “Billy-no-mates” after the 2017 election.

      Obviously, Vance has never been outside her ivory tower.

  5. Has anyone else tried Vote Compass?

    https://votecompass.com/

    I got some interesting results in How much you agree with the parties.

    NC = 70% Nats = 67% NZF =66% ACT = 64%

    The really interesting thing is I rated Peters as 0 and the other 3 party leader as close to 10. O being useless and 10 being very good.

    Needless to say my vote is going to National. However, this may explain what parties get the votes they do.

    I suspect a number of National MPs may rate NC higher than the Nats on vote compass.

    • I got odd results. Some of the questions are rubbish which explains it. Having the taxpayer fund free school lunches is an education question. I am a big supporter of quality education and it’s benefits, but that doesn’t include paying for lunches for ferals who can’t be bothered making sandwiches for their spawn.

  6. DPF’s TDS is getting worse

    Days after the Atlantic’s fake news story about Trump was debunked – fruity is pushing the narrative.

    Here is White House Press Secretary providing some facts on the lie – not that it will make any difference to Farrar.

    Come on DPF – four anonymous sources for the story and 8 ‘on the record’ ones refuting it? Build a bridge, get over it.

    For goodness sake – look at the facts.

    The DNC in the US is in favour of; rioting, cancel culture, putting men in women’s bathrooms, restricting freedom of speech, exporting jobs to China, importing poverty to the US, endless overseas wars, destroying the US economy, executing people in the street if they wear the wrong hat, they want to elect a demented old man who can’t even read from a teleprompter without screwing it up.

    But Trump is bad, because a bunch of liars tell lies about him?

    No wonder National have lost their way if DPF is reading the tea leaves for them.

      • I didn’t see that in DPF’s TDS. But love to hear more on that. My thinking is that with Trump having Jewish grandkids, having moved the US embassy to Jerusalem, having brokered the amazing detente between moderate muslim nations and the Israel that is going widely unreported at the moment – that if DPF was a Zionistic – then he’d be for Trump rather than the overtly anti-semitic DNC?

        I just see DPF’s bias in a much simpler light. Short guy hates tall guy who has hot chicks everywhere around him.

        • Your usually astute analysis is missing the point here DP

          Fruity has been chanting four legs good two legs bad/bad orange man for four long and tedious years now.

          His views are emotional and opinion based, not mathematical.
          One has to wonder if John Key did all Farrar’s homework until 2016 and Farrar just added his name!!

          He has got barely a thing right since Key departed office.
          Farrar is now a simpering, whimpering anti Trump soy boy in full feathered glory now.

          I think I have made my view clear.
          If there is clarification needed please phone the helpline on 0800 SOY BOY !!

          Remember how he changed when the Pope got her hands round his nuts.
          Now we don’t really know anything about his (Iwas going to say lady), but, we don’t know who his partner is or what influence that person has had on him, do we?

      • The Jews in the USA are overwhelmingly biased towards the Demoncrats
        Hence Fruity Farrar’s position.

        The Demoncrats are closer to their communism, communes, and kibbutz than the Republicans will ever be (apart from the RINOs of course)

    • DP – have noticed the significant quality reduction in comments on Kiwiblog with its moderation policy especially as it appears the Mods are more in control now that DPF has a family. Its a great shame as the result is muting real feelings and then being surprised by an unexpected result as has already happened politically in the US/UK/Australia and hopefully to be in NZ and repeated in US.Reminds me of the joke of the Captn of the Titanic wearing ear plugs exclaiming where the fuck has all that water come from.

  8. I object most strongly when someone is declared to be a ‘Marxist’.

    There is no such thing. There are no Marxists anywhere.

    What does exist however are people who believe they should be in charge of a totalitarian system eg Cindy, Jack Daniels of Victoria, university professors in gender ‘studies’ and all of the Main Stream Media.

    Call them ‘Marxists’ if you wish. I call them rissoles.

    • What is a “Marxist”?
      Is it a person whose love of power and control happens to resemble the writings of Marx?
      Is it a person who has studied Marx and wishes to create a utopian society?
      Is it a person who runs on “feelz” and want to “right the wrongs of this world,” “have everyone play nice,” and “share,” like some mother hen?

      Like “Nazi” (a unique product of German philosophy and society), and “Socialist,” I think that the word “Marxist” is not accurately used.

      Perhaps “useful idiot” is the word I am looking for…?

  9. Trump’s Mount Rushmore follow up has this directive in his brief 2 page Memorandum.
    Trump simply gets on with things and goes to the very core where he can be effective.

    ….. These types of “trainings” not only run counter to the fundamental beliefs for which our Nation has stood since its inception, but they also engender division and resentment within the Federal workforce.
    We can be proud that as an employer, the Federal government has employees of all races, ethnicities, and religions.
    We can be proud that Americans from all over the country seek to join our workforce and dedicate themselves to public service.
    We can be proud of our continued efforts to welcome all individuals who seek to serve their fellow Americans as Federal employees.

    However, we cannot accept our employees receiving training that seeks to undercut our core values as Americans and drive division within our workforce.

    The President has directed me to ensure that Federal agencies cease and desist from using
    taxpayer dollars to fund these divisive, un-American propaganda training session

      • This in part is a contributing source for the Burning Looting, & Murderous Mayhem.

        In NZ we have this flowering weed, and sadly we water and feed it, constantly appeasing, dishing out money to save ourselves? for the sake of peace?
        Other peoples money, will only be as long as others/elite can take your money and hand it over until it runs out.

        When will that money run out? Borrow more? An addiction? Kill the goose that lays the golden eggs?

        The gravy train of this “theory” needs to be decried, where ever we find it.
        Ingrained on “maori science” “black science” etc. of anecdotal “dream times” seeking empathy, and like “Lysenko science” is another form of seeking riches, power, and ultimately control.

        Judge Richard Posner of the U.S. Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals has “labelled critical race theorists and postmodernists the ‘lunatic core’ of ‘radical legal egalitarianism.'”

        ….. What is most arresting about critical race theory is that…it turns its back on the Western tradition of rational inquiry, forswearing analysis for narrative.
        Rather than marshal logical arguments and empirical data, critical race theorists tell stories – fictional, science-fictional, quasi-fictional, autobiographical, anecdotal – designed to expose the pervasive and debilitating racism of America today.
        By repudiating reasoned argumentation, the storytellers reinforce stereotypes about the intellectual capacities of nonwhites.

  10. What are the big changes underfoot in the world?
    A crashing birthrate in the Far East and the West is entrenched. This is a glacier that has been advancing since the late 1980s. Everyone has known about it. My parents have 6 grandchildren. I will be lucky to have one.

    Make no mistake that an ever-growing population will put more and more pressure on resources. If mankind reaches “peak technology” then a precipitous decline will be inevitable. In a way, we will be no different to a resource-starved colony of bacteria in a Petri dish.

    There are pros and cons to a declining population. The trick is being able to manage the situation and to eventually be able to pull out of the dive. What do couples need to have 3 children?
    – A husband being able to service the mortgage on the 3-brm family home (within a 40-minute commute from his place of work), pay for his children’s education, cover medical bills, put food on the table, run a private vehicle and still be able to save a little bit for a rainy day.
    – A wife being able to stay at home until the youngest of the 3 children enters primary school, whereupon she will have more time to work for extra income if she so choses.

    I don’t think such a lifestyle is possible in many cities in the Far East and in the West. As such, populations will fall.

I posted the card on Thursday in Hamilton but as there are no longer Saturday deliveries he should receive it in Tauranga hopefully on Monday? Gone are the days of overnight delivery.

    • That “Serene Teffaha’s letter” needs to be served on those police.
      https://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/files/Serene_Teffaha_open_letter.pdf

      This explains how it can be used, and the personal liability that each policeman takes on enforcing those political issues.
      “An important message to all policy enforcers”
      https://youtu.be/G4UlNDB_0i0
      21:19 : • Aug 23, 2020

      When that letter is copied up, and well distributed, it will fire a shot across the police bows, and they know that next one will be in their fuel tanks & magazine.
      An enertia of clamour from some bloggers, journalists, sky news etc.. and there are many points to pick up on from that letter.

      Even dumped on our police, particularly that Commissioner Bush, would have been fun to watch.

      Just need a good wise QC to do a redraft of it, and customize to NZ.
      Maybe some one like Stephen Franks who served 2 terms as an Act MP, and now of “Franks & Ogilvie”
      Though I think he may do it for free, I know there is a tremendous amount of time, research to get something like that to be right, and also stand some test of time.
      Or maybe he could refer us to someone more able, or some work is already going down that track.

      Would a whip around help if he was able to do it?

          Customize to NZ circumstances.

          Hi-lighting would also help in the mean time, and this is a good start.
          Maybe the guys who challenged the 1st lock down & showed the illegitimacy of the Order.

          At this stage, how much in NZ have the police over stepped the mark?
          Not as obvious as in Victoria or the UK., though I believe they have sort of coerced, pressured, and persuaded.

          ACT needs to be aware of this letter too.

          Something like this helps, as others will think on, and trigger them to a more simpler “card” for NZ.

          In the meantime, the limits in NZ for what the police can do:-
          http://youthlaw.co.nz/rights/police-the-youth-justice-system/questioning-and-searches-police

          Then where do the Health or Emergency or Alert Levels fit, and just what is a “directive”, that police then “decide” things like curfews, road blocks that then are ruled by police hierarchy, supposedly requiring police enforcement.

  11. The Devil finds work for idle hands.
    One of the great things about a man having a mortgage and a family is that he will do everything he can to hold on to his job and to stay on the straight and narrow path. His boss knows this. His government knows this.

    Look at the BLM and Antifa activists who riot in the street. How many of them have fulltime jobs, responsibility, and a stable lifestyle?

    Is it possible that the lack of order and purpose in their lives induces them to create mayhem for the lives of others? Do they resent and hate those who have stable lives? Why else would they wreck and burn small businesses and create havoc in otherwise peaceful suburbs?

          Although I cannot provide a Youtube link, the song was titled ‘Cindy oh Cindy’, with the opening sentence (‘Chorus’) being ‘Cindy, oh Cindy, Cindy don’t let me down, write me a letter soon and I’ll be home-ward bound’. The song is banal in itself, but given the current ‘Cindy’s efforts, and her telling expat Kiwi’s to come back to NewZild, the chorus specifically seems somewhat-appropriate…

    If you support New Zealand journalism…
    Make a contribution

    We’d like to ask for your help. In a fast-changing world where misinformation spreads on social media, the need for trustworthy journalism has never been greater. But the media industry faces strong headwinds. Traditional means of funding journalism – such as advertising and subscriptions to our newspapers – have declined, compounded by the economic impact of Covid-19.

    We’re asking our readers to help us continue to play our vital role in society. Stuff holds a special position in New Zealand, with the largest network of newsrooms – hundreds of journalists from Northland to Southland. We’re part of your local community, doggedly pursuing the issues that matter.

    We hold the powerful to account – from making sure your rates are spent wisely to challenging Cabinet ministers who flout the rules.

    We uncover hidden truths – from the Defence Force’s activities in Afghanistan to which companies commit the greatest climate damage.

    And we champion Kiwi communities and values – from fighting for New Zealand history to be taught in schools to enhancing coverage of Te Ao Māori with our new Pou Tiaki section.

    In an age where rumours and speculation spread unchecked on social media, Stuff’s professional standards of accuracy, fairness and balance are more vital than ever. Please consider becoming a supporter. Make a contribution from as little as $1 and help sustain trustworthy independent journalism.

      If the government then sits to change laws, then people need to note this when the elections are done.

      The people will only get what they deserve, if they do not investigate, the academia, the media, bureaucracy and the politicians, exposing them with official information acts etc..

I don’t know enough about how Aussie systemeswork, but I am hoping that somebody finds the laws illegal and starts sueing the cunts right left and centre.

Correct me if I am wrong, but hasn’t he been very ill for several years –I seem to recall an emergency flight to NZ for surgery or serious care ?

  20. Didn’t Jethro start the rot?

    The role of a politician’s partner has been brought into the spotlight recently, after the husband of National leader Judith Collins criticised the Prime Minister on social media.

    How the role of a politician’s spouse has morphed to become an integral part of a campaign
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/role-politicians-spouse-has-morphed-become-integral-part-campaign?auto=6188152762001

    Historically, the role of a political leader’s spouse was to quietly stand by their partner’s side.

    Lees-Marshment said the spouse has now become part of the politicians’ overall campaign brand – such as former National leader Simon Bridges’ wife Natalie, and Jacinda Ardern’s husband Clarke Gayford.

    “Increasingly, the partners of politicians have been brought into the campaign and they’ve been marketed as part of the product partly to try and show their partners as being relatable as being human beings, as being somebody who we might feel we can trust to run the country because they’re somebody who their partner trusts at home.”

    • A professor and an expert in political marketing – whatever that might be. If she was any good she would have a real job doing what she professes to be good at instead of hiding in a University doing quack studies in an attempt to look relevant. Suggesting Gayford is a marketable commodity and some kind of barometer shows she is nothing more than a sycophantic drip who clearly hasn’t watched his fishing show and doesn’t know what a Nanny is.

  23. Plan ‘B’

    ‘Not lockdowns’ – Controversial epidemiologist calls for end to ‘irrational’ Covid-19 elimination strategy

    An epidemiologist is calling for an end to what he says are fear-driven and “irrational” lockdowns in New Zealand’s bid to eliminate Covid-19.
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/not-lockdowns-controversial-epidemiologist-calls-end-irrational-covid-19-elimination-strategy?auto=6188160195001

    He told TVNZ1’s Q+A there is a lack of public debate and diversity of opinion about New Zealand’s elimination response to Covid-19.

    Dr Thornley also alleges the New Zealand Government “has been captured by scientists who have extreme views”.

    “The fear and panic that has driven the response of many scientists, politicians, policy makers and the media, we [Plan B] believe is unwarranted and it’s even irrational.

    • Good on Dr Thornley.
      You do not need a PhD to work out that elimination is impossible, unless NZ wants to be quarantined from the rest of the world, for ever!! When people recognise that simple reality, they might see through the mania generated by this Government.

  24. Really. These “experts” don’t live in the real world! If you can’t do proper due diligence on projects then “shovel ready” applicants shouldn’t receive taxpayer funding until it has been. This taxpayer is quite capable of wasting my OWN income without the govt chucking it down the toilet.

    James Shaw’s decision to sign off the funding for the Taranaki Green School is not Shaw’s issue, but “a project design issue”, one political commentator says.

    Thomas said because of the high number of applications for shovel-ready project funding “you’re just not able to do real due diligence on those projects”.

    He said it was unfair to accuse Shaw of hypocrisy because the Green School project did meet all of the criteria that was laid down.

  27. Former Australian Prime Minister, Tony Abbot asks the uncomfortable questions.

    ~ Mr Abbott said governments approached the pandemic like “trauma doctors instead of thinking like health economists”
    ~ He accused Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews of wanting to extend a “health dictatorship” by pushing for an extension of state of emergency powers
    ~ He said the media had spread “virus hysteria” and people should be allowed to make their own decisions

    …… governments have approached the pandemic like trauma doctors instead of thinking like health economists, trained to pose uncomfortable questions about a level of deaths we might have to live with,” he said. …..
    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-09-01/tony-abbott-urges-against-coronavirus-restrictions-uk-covid-19/12619264

    That last sentence is the triage of trauma doctors, to let the worst die, treat the ones that should respond, and put on hold the rest, that is put all the rest into quarantine “bin”.
    He is right, they have not had the training, but relate like a kindy teacher, with feelz, believing it is kindness being dished out.

    Same to be asked of all this NZ “kindness” “well being” “anecdotal jitterbug of dance”, comradely single mindness government.

  29. Snap Ross12, we are running parallel systems on the same issue. 🙂
    All good as a lot of this is pushed through the academia, with no responsibility, into the educational, judiciary, bureaucracy, politicians, and media for decades.
    Exposure, information, to gain knowledge, is the best form to know what is wrong, and then how to make better decisions, and apply pressure, reason to a better way, but on our terms.

    Just what is “The Great Reset” which seems to be a balance of creating fears & terror, to force a global recognition to accept change one way or the other.
    A review of a book, so it is in a way a summary.

    ….. truth of the matter is that it is the measures imposed in the name of Covid-19 that have caused widespread economic destruction, not the virus itself.
    That distinction is one that mainstream outlets in particular refuse to engage with. …..

    …….. Whether it be in the name of Agenda 2030 (aka Sustainable Development), The Green New Deal or The Great Reset, it would amount to largely the same outcome –
    the subjugation once and for all of national sovereignty where the nation state is subordinate to global governance.

          relentless in attacking Trump, in everything he says
          or does, while at the same time promoting Joe Biden and
          the Democrats. Reverse psychology. Think about it. Orange Man Bad,
          Biden and the Dems. ‘good’.
          This plays well with the American people. The more Trump is
          attacked, the more votes he will get. A cakewalk to keep the
          Presidency, and then implement the plans and controls of the
          Deep State. America is sleepwalking into a trap.

    • Hundreds of yachties blocked from seeking refuge in New Zealand as cyclone season approaches
      https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2020/09/hundreds-of-yachties-blocked-from-seeking-refuge-in-new-zealand-as-cyclone-season-approaches.html

      Guy Chester, a Roving Rear Commodore with the club, has been fighting to get the hundreds of people a safe place to spend the season.

      He said in June, they were told there would be a border exemption process for humanitarian and compelling reasons.

      But last week they discovered cyclone refuge was not included.

      Chester said they felt betrayed by the government.

      “We’ve run out of time,” he said.

      The club had been working with the New Zealand health processes, talking to officers, said Chester.

      “We’ve now got the situation where we have just been told that cyclone refuge is not a compelling reason and exemptions will not be granted, in which case, it’s now vital.”

      The cyclone season starts on 1 November, but with most boats between 2 to 6 weeks away from somewhere safe, it had now reached crisis point, he said.

    According to the BBC, the cordon was close to the area known as the ‘Gay Village’ in the centre of Birmingham, where many people had been seated at outdoor tables eating and drinking.

    “Work is still going on to establish what has happened, and could take some time before we are in a position to confirm anything. At this early stage it would not be appropriate to speculate on the causes of the incident,” a police spokesperson says.
