  1. Yes agree Ed we are fighting two viruses at the moment.
    On another subject I see Waikato Uni Maori department feels they suffer racist abuse every day, from the pronunciation of their names and being called you people. Asian Invasion has a post on this today. I would say every day my surname is mispronounced, I think I should make a deal of that, its just not fair I am now called a racist whitey as well, can I have some of that money that seems to be available for this please? I’d say for similar remarks I just have to suck it up and not bring attention to it.

      • Many languages or dialects simply can’t pronounce English names correctly because they lack the vowel or consonant sounds.

        For example, in Japanese there is no “er” sound. The closest is the “ah” sound. That is why a Japanese will say “bard” when they try to pronounce “bird.”
        Maori pronounciation is easier for Japanese because both Japanese and Te Reo have the same vowel sounds and end almost every word in a vowel.

        It’s not racism. The sounds simply aren’t there.

        • ……”The sounds simply aren’t there.”…..

          But they can be learnt. There is no “Z” in Maori but they can still pronounce Jazz.

          If I have to pronounce “au” as “o” & “wh” as a guttural “f” the special people shouldn’t have problems with English.

          • I think the “pronunciation that strokes my mana” is a kind of bullying technique targeted at members of the percieved “oppressor” class.
            Has the media ever carried a story of a member of the percieved “oppressor” class criticizing a member of an “oppressed” class for incorrect pronunciation of the Queen’s English?

    US President Donald Trump nominated for Nobel Peace Prize by Norwegian lawmaker
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/world/2020/09/us-president-donald-trump-nominated-for-nobel-peace-prize-by-norwegian-lawmaker.html

    A Norwegian lawmaker has nominated Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize for 2021 for helping broker a deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, the second time he has put forward the US president for the honour.

    “It is for his contribution for peace between Israel and the UAE. It is a unique deal,” Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of parliament for the right-wing Progress Party, told Reuters.

    Tybring-Gjedde, who nominated Trump for the 2019 award for his diplomatic efforts with North Korea, said he also nominated him this year because of the US troop withdrawal from Iraq.

    The seven dwarfs go to the Vatican , and because they are the seven dwarfs, they are
    immediately ushered in to see the Pope.
    Grumpy leads the pack.
    ‘Grumpy, my son,’ says the Pope, ‘What can I do for you?’
    Grumpy asks, ‘Excuse me your Excellency, but are there any dwarf nuns in Rome ?’
    The Pope wrinkles his brow at the odd question, thinks for a moment and answers, ‘No, Grumpy, there are no dwarf nuns in Rome .’
    In the background, a few of the dwarfs start giggling.
    Grumpy turns around and glares, silencing them.
    Grumpy turns back, ‘Your Worship, are there any dwarf nuns in all of Europe ?’
    The Pope, puzzled now, again thinks for a moment and then answers, ‘No, Grumpy, there are no dwarf nuns in Europe .
    Grumpy then says, ‘Mr.. Pope! Are there ANY dwarf nuns anywhere in the world?’
    The Pope, really confused by the questions says, ‘I’m sorry, my son, there are no dwarf nuns anywhere in the world.’
    The other dwarfs collapse into a heap, rolling and laughing, pounding the floor, tears rolling down their cheeks, as they begin chanting……
    ‘Grumpy shagged a penguin!’

  7. Cindy comes to work in the morning holding a mysterious package. Rushing into her beehive office, she calls out to her secretary, “No calls. No interruptions.”
    At the end of a long day, Cindy comes out in a foul mood, walks back to her home, and goes right to sleep.
    Early the next morning, she is back at the office. “No calls. No interruptions,” she calls out before entering the office and slamming the door behind her.
    The behavior repeats itself but after a few days, it is midnight and Cindy still hasn’t come out of her office. Unsure what to do, they decide that her Chief of Staff should knock on the door. “Cindy, are you okay?”
    “I said NO INTERRUPTIONS and I meant it!” they hear Cindy scream through the door.
    Two more days pass without a word from Cindy and then the secretary’s phone rings. It is Cindy. “Get me Heather Simpson immediately!”
    A secretary is dispatched and in 15 minutes, a breathless Heather is knocking on the door to the office.
    “Come in.”
    Heather open the door slowly and finds a disheveled unwashed Cindy sitting at her desk with a big grin on her face. On top of her desk is a completed 30-piece puzzle of the Wellington skyline.
    Heather doesn’t know what to make of it.
    Cindy leans back triumphantly in her chair and says. “I’ve got something for our next press conference…” Heather takes out her notebook.
    “You see that puzzle?” Cindy asks pointing at her desk. “Well, the box says ‘3 to 7 years’ and me, I finished it in JUST 6 DAYS!”

  9. Two women are facing hate crime charges in the United States after confronting a 7-year-old boy and his mother outside the Democratic National Convention in Delaware over their support of President Donald Trump and seizing a “Make America Great Again” hat.

    The boy chases after the two women, saying “That’s somebody else’s hat,” before Amy picks it up again and walks away with it.

    “Mom, call 911,” the frightened boy says.

    The video later shows Amy apparently punching a man who tried to get the hat back before she throws it over a fence. Amy then approaches and confronts the woman shooting the video, which abruptly ends.

  14. ACT leader David Seymour says Labour’s tax policy announced yesterday picks on people who work hard.
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/labours-tax-policy-picks-people-work-hard-david-seymour-argues?auto=6189223032001

    Yesterday, Labour announced that if elected it wanted to introduce a new top tax rate of 39 per cent for income earned over $180,000.

    However, Seymour told TVNZ1’s Breakfast this morning the policy was “purely symbolic”.

    “The symbolism of it is, look, we teach our kids work hard, don’t pick on people. This is a policy that picks on a minority of people who work hard and the values are totally wrong.”

    Seymour also said it wouldn’t even generate enough money anyway.

    “I’m an engineer by training and your systems have to work so, fundamentally, will this policy pay off the debt? The amount of tax Labour would raise won’t even cover the interest on the debt that they’ve borrowed,” he said.

    “The right thing to do is actually to reduce spending and balance the budget so we don’t put the debt onto future generations.”

    National also criticised the move yesterday, with finance spokesperson Paul Goldsmith saying, “no country in the world has ever taxed itself out of recession, but Labour’s first instinct is to raise your taxes”.

    • Japan is not without its problems. The war may have destroyed the trust of the people in the ruling military junta of the day, but the Japanese have always been surrounded by their language, their local community organizations, their local shrine and temple culture, their arts and crafts… These components of what it means to be Japanese were largely untouched by the war and its occupation by US forces in the aftermath.
      The US ushered in land reform in the 1940s, enabling the emergence of a Japanese middle class from the ranks of tenant farmers and laborers. And for that the Japanese people have always been grateful to the Americans.

      I don’t think that Stefan Molyneux has much direct experience in Japan. No doubt he reads a lot, but some things you have to experience and learn for yourself, not indirectly from others.

      Pride in one’s national identity and culture can be a double-edged sword. On one hand, if you don’t have a national identity, then your country stands for nothing and can be easily moulded by your leaders into anything. And if your chauvanism is too strong, you will hate and despise the “outsiders” because they are not like you.

      Perspective is the most important thing. If you think you love your country and culture, then go and live in another and learn their language. That way, you will be able to love and understand your country of birth with far greater clarity than anyone who grown up there but who has never left its shores.

  17. Like the curates egg, ok in parts, but already the rot had set in, by major error in numbers.

    The problem is no real admittance of the error, and then slowness, but still no adaptability as more research and actual knowledge and experience, in noticing the actual numbers.

    Emma McBryde, professor of infectious diseases modelling at James Cook University, told The Daily Telegraph her team in Queensland discovered the mistake shortly after it was published in April. ….
    .
    …. contacted the Doherty Institute and notified them of the error and were told it would be fixed.
    .
    “That was three months ago and we are still waiting,” Professor McBryde said.
    .
    “Leaving something inaccurate uncorrected on the public record is pretty close to research misconduct.” …..
    .
    ….. “This error resulted from a single line in the code used to plot a graph, meaning that it showed the number of hospitalisations rather than the number of ICU bed admissions,” Professor McVernon said. ……
    .
    ….. During the peak of Victoria’s second wave last month there were approximately 690 people in hospital across Australia due to COVID-19, with about 50 in the ICU and more than 30 on ventilators.
    .
    In its best case scenario, the Doherty Institute modelling predicted a daily demand of about 5000 intensive care beds, with that increasing to more than 35,000 without restriction measures in place.
    .
    It also suggested that 20 per cent of the population could become infected in the first wave – more than 5 million people – and that 1 per cent, or about 51,000 people, would die..
    .
    In May, Liberal Senator James Paterson questioned Professor Murphy on the modelling, pointing out the reality of Australia’s COVID-19 fight was no where near even the best case scenario outlined in the modelling. ….
    .
    “On the basis of that modelling, governments envisaged that we would have quite serious restrictions … for up to six months,” he said.
    .
    “Happily that now doesn’t appear to be the case. We’re now only two months in and they’re being eased.
    So policy was predicated on (a) six month restriction scenario is obviously going to be quite out of step for what ends up being a two month scenario, isn’t it?”
    .
    Professor Murphy claimed the modelling was never a “real world” scenario and was signed to allow the government to implement a series of restrictions that would lessen the impacts of an unmitigated outbreak.
    .
    “The modelling was never real world, it was designed to give us a sense of what we had to do to have a health system that was not going to be overwhelmed,” he said.
    .
    Professor Murphy said the advice taken from the modelling was aimed at ensuring Australia’s health system wasn’t overwhelmed like other systems around the world had been.
    .
    “That was really the purpose of that modelling – we wanted to reassure governments collectively that we had the tools in our kit bag to manage down to within the health system capacity,” he said.
    .
    Professor Murphy said he had “no doubt” the Federal Government did the right thing by imposing restrictions.
    .
    “Those countries that imposed restrictions late have had terrible devastation as they bring the pandemic under control and they still have not suppressed anywhere near the level we have,” he said.
    .
    “So moving early was clearly the right thing to do, I’m in absolutely no doubt about that.”

    https://www.news.com.au/world/coronavirus/australia/coronavirus-australia-mistake-in-covid-modelling-that-informed-lockdown/news-story/ed597d740d845649de9e7b31c123bee7

    So it was the wrong numbers used for intensive care, that is the hospitalization numbers were going straight into ventilators and ICU

    Sadly we have the same system of this world wide modelling, and no one wanting to admit mistakes, or even to consider new information, new data, new considerations, unless it can be used to create fears.

    • Sorry it may seem long, but I am getting my head around this, so as to more easily explain to others.
      Particularly to point out the Infection rate, compared to the Case rate, and just exactly what they are.
      Even many experts got all mixed up.
      .
      No body wants to admit they are operating on the wrong numbers that were taken from a different part.
      .
      ….. Then fatality rate predictions were somehow mixed up to make it look ten times WORSE.
      When you strip everything else out, the reason for lockdown comes from a single figure: one percent.
      This was the prediction that Covid, if left unchecked, would kill around one percent of us.
      .
      You may not think that percentage is enormous, but one percent of the population of the world is 70 million people – and that’s a lot.
      It would mean 3.2 million Americans dead, and 670,000 Britons.
      .
      But where did this one percent figure come from?
      You may find this hard to believe, but this figure emerged by mistake.
      A pretty major thing to make a mistake about, but that’s what happened.
      .
      ….. One type of fatality rate was substituted for another.
      The wrong rate was then used to predict the likely death rate – ….
      .
      In order to understand what happened, you have to understand the difference between two medical terms that sound the same – but are completely different. …….
      .
      Which fatality rate, did you say?
      First, there’s the Infection Fatality Rate (IFR).
      This is the total number of people who are infected by a disease and the number of them who die.
      This figure includes those who have no symptoms at all, or only very mild symptoms – those who stayed at home, coughed a bit and watched Outbreak.
      .
      Then there’s the Case Fatality Rate (CFR).
      This is the number of people suffering serious symptoms, who are probably ill enough to be in hospital.
      Clearly, people who are seriously ill – the “cases” – are going to have a higher mortality rate than those who are infected, many of whom don’t have symptoms.
      Put simply – all cases are infections, but not all infections are cases. [:-)]
      .
      Which means that the CFR will always be far higher than the IFR.
      With influenza, the CFR is around ten times as high as the IFR.
      Covid seems to have a similar proportion.
      .
      Now, clearly, you do not want to get these figures mixed up.
      By doing so you would either wildly overestimate, or wildly underestimate, the impact of Covid.
      But mix these figures up, they did.
      .
      The error started in America, but didn’t end there.
      In healthcare, the US is very much the dog that wags the tail.
      The figures they come up with are used globally.
      .
      On February 28, 2020, an editorial was released by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
      Published in the New England Journal of Medicine, the editorial stated: “… the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza.”
      .
      They added that influenza has a CFR of approximately 0.1 percent.
      One person in a thousand who gets it badly, dies.
      .
      But that quoted CFR for influenza was ten times too low – they meant to say the IFR, the Infection Fatality Rate, for influenza was 0.1 percent.
      This was their fatal – quite literally – mistake.
      .
      The mistake was compounded.
      On March 11, the same experts testified to Congress, stating that Covid’s CFR was likely to be about one percent, so one person dying from a hundred who fell seriously ill.
      Which, as time has passed, has proved to be pretty accurate.
      .
      At this meeting, they compared the likely impact of Covid to flu.
      But they used the wrong CFR for influenza, the one stated in the previous NEJM editorial. 0.1 percent, or one in a thousand.
      The one that was ten times too low.
      .
      Flu toll 1,000 – Covid toll 10,000
      So, they matched up the one percent CFR of Covid with the incorrect 0.1 percent CFR of flu.
      Suddenly, Covid was going to be ten times as deadly.
      .
      If influenza killed 50, Covid was going to kill 500.
      If influenza killed a million, Covid was going to get 10 million.
      No wonder Congress, then the world, panicked.
      Because they were told Covid was going to be ten times worse than influenza.
      They could see three million deaths in the US alone, and 70 million around the world.
      .
      I don’t expect you or I to get this sort of thing right.
      But I bloody well expect the experts to do so.
      They didn’t.
      They got their IFR and CFR mixed up and multiplied the likely impact of Covid by a factor of ten.

      .
      Enter the Mad Modellers of Lockdown
      …. the Imperial College experts, created the same panic.
      On March 16, they used an estimated IFR of 0.9 percent to predict that, without lockdown, Covid would kill around 500,000 in the UK.
      .
      Is this prediction anywhere close?
      .
      So far, the UK has had around 40,000 Covid deaths.
      Significantly less than 0.1 percent, but not that far off.
      Of course, people will say… “We had lockdown… without it so many more would have died.
      Most people have not been infected…” etc.
      .
      To answer this, we need to know the true IFR.
      Is it a 0.1 percent, or one percent?
      If it is one percent, we have more than 400,000 deaths to go.
      If it is 0.1 percent, this epidemic has run its course.
      For this year, at least.
      .
      With swine flu, remember that the IFR started at around two percent.
      In the end, it was 0.02 percent, which was five times lower than the lowest estimate during the outbreak.
      The more you test, the lower the IFR will fall. ……
      . . . . . . . . . .
      ……….. It takes a very big person to admit they have made a horrible, terrible mistake.
      But a horrible, terrible mistake has been made.
      Let’s end this ridiculous nonsense now.
      And vow never to let such monumental stupidity happen ever again.

      There is a fair bit more in that article, but the last paragraph sums it up for me.
      Can we get this into our health department?
      Can we get this into our policians?

      Whilst in the meantime this is deemed to be all part of an evangelistic charismatic church conspiracy.
      So they want to stamp this on the head by not letting priests even do the last rites, or take confessions.

        • Thanks Ross12, Good to hear it is going viral, and at the same time, to keep to the truth, and reveal it, so we all understand it.
          Will look at it when I can

          Sadly like the Climategate at that University of East Anglia (UEA) that exposed a lot lies, deceit of the numbers, and was plastered over to keep that Climate Change industry going.

          Here in NZ already it is said the evangelistic charismatic pentecost Trumpian churches are in conspiracy so not even any individual faith leaders can visit for last rite or whatever, as touched on in my above Australian link.
          I do not mean as prayer groups or churches either!

  18. This article about the stats for the UK raises some interesting questions.

    https://off-guardian.org/2020/09/09/flu-is-killing-more-people-than-covid19-and-has-been-for-months/

    ” “Ah”, some of your may be saying, “this is just evidence that the lockdown, social distancing and masks have worked.”

    But that is obviously not the case. Clearly, if these measures did anything to halt viral transmission, the flu deaths would have gone down as well. They have not. They are right in line with the five-year average.

    Despite social distancing and wearing masks and hand sanitizer on every corner…the spread of the flu virus has not halted one bit in its usual annual progress through society. “

  20. It’s a pity they can’t get down to core business & teach their semi literate pupils something useful rather than push their faith based propaganda:

    ……” A Catholic school that has given parents “vote no” literature on cannabis and euthanasia has sparked a moral and legal row over whether schools should get involved in politics.

    St Joseph’s School in Stratford, Taranaki, has emailed all its parents attaching Family First literature listing 20 reasons to vote no to the upcoming referendums on both issues, and giving a link to the VoteSafe website opposing the proposed euthanasia law.”…….

  21. Fellow YSBians.
    I sometimes comment on blogs around the world and ask questions about what they are hearing, concerning NZ.
    Last night I received an out of the blue response from someone.
    I thought I’d share it.

    “I heard from an acquaintance that Bill Gates recently bought a huge estate near Kaitaia in Northland and that he didn’t keep to his “family bubble,” as service workers (landscapers, lawn mowers, hairdressers) were coming and going to his estate during the lockdown.
    I tried to get more info from this acquaintance, but she went silent on me, presumably because she was protecting her friend who actually provided services to Gates.
    I can’t blame the Kiwis for “servicing” the disgusting pair of eugenicists, as the Kiwis were probably desperate for the money, but the arrogance of the Gateses (“lockdown for thee but not for me”) is yet another reason to despise them.
    My friend said that Gates was flying into and out of NZ (private jet to AKL, then helicopter to his estate) all during the lockdown, so I’m guessing that he received “instant double secret” permanent residency status from Comrade Jacinda in order to do so, because of course billionaires can instantly buy their permanent residency status in NZ while the rest of the peons and Little People have to go through the time-consuming “regular” way to gain permanent residency.

    Then, on ZeroHedge in about May, some commenter posted that his wealthy friends in NZ revealed that Gates was spending considerable time in NZ because NZ was going to be one of the first countries to roll out mandatory COVID vaccines, and he was thick in the planning of it (ID2020). Kiwis are such trusting hobbits.

    Sort of fits.

    Rare blue-eyed, ginger fur seal pup may need rescuing if shunned by colony
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/world/2020/09/rare-blue-eyed-ginger-fur-seal-pup-may-need-rescuing-if-shunned-by-colony.html

    According to the Siberian Times, the chances of a partial albino birth are one in 100,000 and there is a risk of rejection.

    He said scientists will keep an eye on the latest pup to ensure they can rescue it if it’s rejected. If it is rescued it could be moved to a dolphinarium, which is what’s happened with previously rejected seals.

  23. Quebec City Says It Will Isolate “Uncooperative” Citizens In Secret Corona Facility

    During a press conference, Dr. Jacques Girard, who heads the Quebec City public health authority, drew attention to a case where patrons at a bar were ordered to wait until their COVID-19 tests came back, but disregarded the command and left the premises before the results came back positive.

    This led to them being deemed “uncooperative” and forcibly interned in a quarantine facility.

    Black Lives Matter?
    They paved the way for white identity to return the moment they allowed for black identity to crystallize. Do you really want the genie to get out of the bottle?

    Your identity must be “New Zealander.” The alternative path leads to a bad, bad place.

    • In these weird times it would definitely be racist stigie. Yet as it’s highly unlikely that she or any of her team-mates have more than 25% Maori ancestry how would the separatists feel about naming it the Quarter Maori, Three Quarters European Under 17 Girls Rugby Team?

      Or the NZ Girls Under 17 Rugby Team.

  28. Communism is ‘knocking on the door’: Alan Jones
    8 mins 30 secs

    “The communists knock on the door, is this the new world order?”

    Mr Jones spoke with Melbourne anaesthetist Dr Eamonn Mathieson, one of doctors who signed the letter.

    “The evidence is clear, all of the other medical conditions other than COVID are being neglected,” Dr Mathieson said.

    “The consequences of that are catastrophic, many people are saying that what we may be witnessing is Victoria’s worst ever public healthcare crisis as a result of the shutdowns.

    “This needs to be taken into consideration very seriously.”

  29. Fed up with living under one of the toughest coronavirus curfews in the world, Victorians are among an army of 62,000 people who have fled to COVID-free Darwin since the borders reopened in July.

    And some have even told news.com.au their Victorian bosses don’t even know where they are and assume they are simply “working from home”.

  30. I get the impression that many people have decided that Hipkins is not the author of Truth. Schools may not be as safe as he has being stating. I suspect the St Dominics girl has infected a fair number of her class mates if she only felt sick on Friday. Testing over the next few days will confirm or refute this. Many parents are keeping their children at home. I can’t blame them when it is becoming more and more obvious that Chippy and his Team of 5 Million are learning tthe rules as they play the game. They havn’t a fucking clue.

      • Premier:- Indemnified by the government.

        Now a question should be asked of the individual police man.
        Can he stand a suit taken against himself? for escalating problems, and “wrongful arrest”.
        Does he seriously believe he will be indemnified, by the Ministry?
        Has the Union enough funds for all the cases that look like appearing, also for his colleagues.

        Is he really sure their will be enough funds in that kitty, or union support have enough,
        All “good” // politician knows the best way of pushing others under a bus?

        Create more doubt.

  31. To help writers with cramp, here are some suggestions to use instead of lengthy politically correct terms.

    The term “ethnically-diverse-multicultural area” can now be deemed a “shithole”

    The term “anti-social-behaviour” is now simply known as “fun”.

    And the term “mentally impaired” is now known as “Green”.

  32. Just viewed the Sky News item linked by Alice at 4.27 regarding HCQ.
    As I understand it NZ is the same as Australia in that doctors are not able to prescribe the HCQ, zinc protocol.
    I wonder whether if there would be any advantage in someone starting a petition to allow doctors to prescribe this or any other medication they deem suitable (in consultation with their patients of course)?
    I am not in a position to arrange this but would certainly sign it.
