  1. Morning folks. Day 2 of Artimus Pyles new job.
    Good to be working again after 7 months of
    trying to find work. Have to get used to early
    mornings again, but it beats being unemployed.
    Will swing by later on to see what’s been happening.
    Have a great day.

    • Tough out there on many. Grandson wanting a job. Very bright but also shy. The last one had 30 applicants.

      Remember back in the early 90’s when we would get anything up to 100 or more applicants. That’s after Richardsons (mother of mouth and trousers mouth) disaster budget that caused so many to lose their businessess and jobs and leave for Aussie.
      (least we forget how bad the Nats, really were.)

      I have tenants who are really struggling. Got to go and see one today and see they can get some help. Winz no longer do face to face and for a person who struggles to use a phone ley alone a compouter etc it seems they don’t matter. Have been going down the same track with another. Can’t even get a return call from the social worker so about to piss someone in their comfy chair right off. Not everyone in this world is a PHD which seems to what they expect.

  2. I read somewhere the death toll from the Wuflu is approaching 1 million worldwide. The world population is about 3 billion, so about point 3 of 1%. That is pretty mild when you consider the Greens will probably wipe out that many productive jobs due to their crazy ideologically driven theories in no time and still believe they are the pious ones who are saving us all. Say no to the Ho, ditch the bitch and do anything you can to get rid of the toxic Greens.

    • Hi Mr T

      The world’s population is about 7.5 billion.

      So the maths is 1,000,000/7,500,000,000 = 0.013%

      RUN FOR THE GODDAMN HILLS lol

      • So in that case would this make sense:

        I see the world death toll is now approaching 1 million people.
        I see that the world’s population is about 7.5 billion.
        So the maths is 1,000,000/7,500,000,000 = 0.013%
        I see that the chances of winning lotto/power ball is 1 in 38,383,800
        I see it is stated that most people who fall sick with COVID-19 will experience mild to moderate symptoms and recover without special treatment.

        • What was brushed aside last week was that people had the ‘deadly disease’ in February 2020 and ‘recovered’ without knowing how deadly it is or that they were temporarily ‘dying’ //

          So it has been around and many ‘got the bug’ and the body did what its immune system was supposed to do; and has done with many coronavirus strains before and all the other bugs we pick up in the garden; in hotel rooms, on pubic transport.

          I hypothesize that Herr Doktor Clark when Minster of Health knew this scaremongering was exactly that so went to the beach and so on, and shifted house.
          Basically David Clark knew it was a scam from the get go.
          Then one has to ask the question – why was he sent home to Dunedin in the middle of a ‘100 year crisis’ when it was his direct and main portfolio?
          Was it because he called it out.
          Theory. Derived from running a ruler over the events.

          Remember Grunt Robbers son was dead keen to be leader of liebour and therefore PM.
          He had three attempts at it and – on the surface -gave up.
          He is working in Machiavellian ways.
          He is running the show with ditzy as head girl and prepared speech maker.

          The Treaty may or may not be a fraud.
          Covid 19 certainly is.
          Well, the reaction and discussion, for sure .
          We are all taking it up the jacksie; like Robbers son does regularly.

          • It is mystifying why in those early February videos coming out of Wuhan where rampant numbers of Chinese people appeared healthy walking in the streets then literally dropping dead in front of our eyes from the Wuhan flu. Tragically their collapsed bodies so toxic nobody would attend to them.

            How odd that is not how people in the West presented when infected with Covid. They likely had a check up for cold symptoms before being diagnosed and treated.

            Was there some over-egging to frighten the world population into capitulating?

      All cycle ways should be closed when the wind gets up to 10 km.
      No cycles to be on the road when the wind reaches 5 km as it could be dangerous for their health.

      I am sure there will be an expert supporting this, once they understand the scientific facts behind this. 🙂

  4. Covid Cindy hiding important information on Covid case count

    So given that the “experts” at the WHO have told us that asymptomatic cases (ie cases where no one knows the person has Covid until tested to a ridiculous degree of sensitivity that a chair leg or a walrus can be a positive) can not transmit the virus isn’t the single most important piece of information for the “most open and transparent government evah!” to tell us – isn’t the proportion of asymptomatic positives missing?

    Don’t we need to know what proportion of Covid +ve tests are asymptomatic? I mean no one is dying of Covid (other than people who had terminal conditions anyway). So if no one is dying… and as we all know all the +ve cases detected are asymptomatic so they’re not infectious…. then what the fuck is this all about? No death, no transmission and it’s only criminal incompetence by the authorities in allowing Covid in at the border that is keeping the scam going.

    Even Fauci (further down that thread linked above) tells us that asymptomatic cases are not a cause of pandemic spread!

    So it seems our government is actually ignoring the science – which means it can only be for political purposes. No wonder Labour’s vote is imploding. The extra month delay in going to the polls is going to cost them big time! No wonder Cindy tried to stick to her Covid-election plan.

    • Of course it is political and not medical.

      The whole thing is a scamdemic.

      In the last few weeks sites I have followed have moved from questioning it to outright calling it a hoax.
      The Irish sites – Savant and Dave Cullen
      Even JP Sears is blasting it.
      He is placing his vids in a dropbox location now in case they are removed from YT.

      There is a war on.
      At present it is cold war with sidebar distractions like BLM.
      It will heat up.
      Think of the Transformers movie 2007.
      There is a war around us and people like Dan Andrews and Ardoom are transforming from mild Volkswagens into …..

      This is simply another Coronavirus but it has been weaponized against the people.
      It is SARS COV 2.
      There was a SARS COV 1
      It was not that deadly.

      Those who question after more than 6 months if this is an ‘over-reaction’ will not learn.

      It is a Great Reset.

      There is massive manipulation going on with Boris Johnson.
      One can but guess at the full story.
      He was a holdout but there is huge pressure being brought to bear and with a new born child currently in Italy… who knows what these evil bastards are really doing ??

      Look at little cuck boy and beady-eyed, beta male Fruity Farrar.
      As I recall he was writing Anti Johnson shit last year.
      Treason May was the puppet who was in place to see this through.
      Boris disrupted the force.
      Farrar is a globalist foot soldier.

      The ref to the Fabian society by some is correct.
      You can put $500 on it Ardoom was trained up while in London.
      Of course the official material is that she served in soup kitchen in NY on the way over the London.
      Classic diversion.

      Remove all doubts now.
      This SARS COV 2 is weaponized against the people- YOU
      Not medically because it is weak, but politically.
      Think NOW.

    UK police force is ‘woke and only allows protests by the chattering classes’

    Spiked Editor Brendan O’Neil says the behaviour of the police in the UK has been “staggering and hypocritical” as they’ve bowed down to Black Lives Matter protestors but used extreme force against those protesting the lockdowns.

    “We now have a highly politicised police force,” Mr O’Neil told Sky News host Chris Kenny.

  6. This scuzzy old gézeer walks into a bar. He’s blind, and he has his see and eye dog with him . He sits down and the bar tender asks him what he’d like. He takes off his hat and asks for a favour.
    “If you’d allow me to play a song ,on your piano, for a drink, I’d be most grateful”.
    The bar tender asks if he’s any good?
    He says he’s written many songs but never became famous .
    The bar tender gets him a drink, and says, go ahead and play us one of your songs .
    He goes to the piano, sits down and starts playing. He’s very good and people in the bar are really enjoying his song. Unknowingly to him, his dog is licking his crotch this whole time.
    A lady in the crowd sees this, and she has to tell him. She whispered in the old man’s ear.
    “Sir do you know your dogs licking your balls? ”
    The old guy enthusiastically says . “Know it.? Lady I wrote it.”

  7. National vows to double Serious Fraud Office’s budget in bid to stamp out corruption
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/national-vows-double-serious-fraud-offices-budget-in-bid-stamp-corruption

    “New Zealand’s most successful crime fighting agency will get the resources it needs to deliver on its stated role as the ‘lead law enforcement agency for investigating and prosecuting serious financial crime, including bribery and corruption,” National leader Judith Collins said.

    “The SFO has statutory powers that other New Zealand crime fighting agencies do not, including powers to compel the production of information and to require witnesses and suspects to answer any questions put to them without the right to silence. But these powers aren’t being given enough opportunity to be used.”

    “Corruption rankings are based largely on perceptions. In New Zealand’s case this is in-part because of the relatively small number of proven cases of serious fraud, bribery and corruption we uncover. In a way it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy; if you aren’t searching for something you’re unlikely to find it.”

  8. Cindy won’t put a stake in the ground whether she supports cannabis so they’ve rolled out old Hulun. (She’s finally had her teeth fixed).

    Duncan Garner: Helen Clark has become a face of the ‘vote yes’ to legalising cannabis campaign – and it’s odd
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/09/duncan-garner-helen-clark-has-become-a-face-of-the-vote-yes-to-legalising-cannabis-campaign-and-it-s-odd.html

    Enter former Prime Minister Helen Clark, who in many ways has become the most significant face of the ‘yes’ movement – because Jacinda Ardern is too worried being truthful will hurt her.

    But Clark’s position is odd, given: one, she was sensible enough to avoid this issue while Prime Minister because she liked her job; and two, given the evidence in favour of cannabis is inconclusive on the upside, but clear on the down side, I can’t for the life of me work out why she’s staking her reputation on this.

    If you were so keen on it, why not pass it into law alongside civil unions, anti-smacking and legalised prostitution?

  11. Chlöe Swarbrick blasts ACT deputy leader Brooke van Velden’s comments on COVID-19 recovery as ‘disgusting’

    Van Velden had a crack at Labour’s Covid-19 recovery plan and its debt levels, likening the impact its borrowing would have on future generations to “fiscal child abuse”.

    That earned her a sharp, angry rebuke from Swarbrick, who called the remark “disgusting”, before launching into the subject of child – and family – poverty.

  12. Pay your suppliers! He won’t be the last one to try this.

    Construction company folds with debts near $200k after boss starts afresh
    https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/122894722/construction-company-folds-with-debts-near-200k-after-boss-starts-afresh

    Tradespeople left thousands of dollars out of pocket by a construction company collapse are angry its owner remains in business under another name.

    Christchurch builder Jonny Collett put his company, JE Collett Builders Ltd, into liquidation this month owing close to $200,000. Known creditors include Inland Revenue and about 30 businesses – many of which are subcontractors and suppliers.

    Collett is now running Collett Construction Ltd, which he formed in May, about the same time he stopped paying his other company’s bills.

    The Companies Act says a director cannot run what is known as a phoenix company – one trading in the same business using the same or a similar name as their failed one – before or within five years after the liquidation.

      Anyhow the great and mighty TV3/Media jerks did exactly this in 2013 to get out of debt.
      They went into receivership to avoid debt
      This included $22 million owed to the IRD
      …to you and me Mr/s Taxpayer.

      You might like to remind the holier than thou cretin Paddy Gower if he takes a break from his relentless hunt for white supremacists
      TV3 was deliberately collapsed to avoid debt incl. to IRD

    • As far as I know the Auckland Harbour bridge has never been closed due to weather since it opened? It was not closed by Cyclone Bola which blew in from the north-east, and I don’t remember it being closed by Cyclone Giselle when the Cook Strait ferry, the Wahine floundered on Barrett’s reef at the entrance to Wellington Harbour.

      Cyclone Giselle was the worst storm recorded in New Zealand’s history. It hit Cape Reinga early in the morning of 9 April 1968 and reached Wellington on the morning of 10 April. There it met another storm which had driven up the West Coast of the South Island from Antarctica. The storm caused the sinking of the Wahine before blowing out somewhere in the Southern Ocean.

  20. This was MSMs take on the Brad Parscales (ex Trump campaign manager) incident.

    Former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale hospitalized after barricading himself in home while armed, threatening self-harm: report.

    This is the arresting cops bodycam footage.

    Bodycam footage of Brad Parscale has been leaked & it counters every “allegation” made by the fake news.

    He had no weapons. He got into an argument with his wife.

    Then they had him involuntary committed claiming “he was suicidal”.

  21. Californias’ politicians have some pretty dumb ideas.
    Much like our Green Party of wonks.

    Alexei Koseff@akoseff
    In a letter, the U.S. EPA administrator tells Newsom that his executive order mandating only new electric car sales in California by 2035 may be illegal and questions the feasibility of the increase demand in electricity “when you can’t even keep the lights on today.”

  23. We all thought he was being investigated for the scam set up of the trust and it’s dodgy accounting and operation. Turns out they looked at something else. Are we doing the american thing where the authorities look for a scapegoat for the crooks at the top? Did they even examine the trust set up and operation? Or is the law under which slime bags like Winston First operate so loose that there is no charge to answer?

  25. And now for something completely different.

    What if WWI never happened?
    “Imagine a world where Germany’s missed ‘window of opportunity’ in the 1910s leads to a strategic stalemate and Europe remains as jingoistic and clueless about the horrors of industrial war as it was circa 1913 for another fifty years and then when the World War hits in the 1960s they throw around nukes and chemical weapons and bio-weapons like they’re candy and end up burning Europe to the ground and taking half the world with them besides.”

    • You miss two points:

      1) The Japanese expansion plans in the Pacific would still have lead to a huge conflict in the 1940s.

      2) Although WW1 & WW2 may not have occurred as they did there were no shortage of opportunities for war. GB, France, Germany, Italy & the USA were running out of new lands to assert influence over. The war may have been the UK vs Holland over SA or GB vs Russia in the ME. The causes of vast conflict were there from the dawn of the 20th Century.

      It was a disaster seeking a time & venue.

      • My mothers (ma & step-ma) were in their mid 20s in W(h)anganui when WW2 broke out.
        Their instructions if the Japs arrived on Castlecliff Beach were to start walking up the Parapara. (SH4)…
        (What they were meant to do when they reached Raetihi was never explained ).

        • Apart from a stint in the Pacific my old man saw out WW2 as a Morse operator on Kaiti Hill, probably not far from Chez Wassilieff. Six weeks on & one off was the schedule.

          From memory, after the war, documentation showed that a Jap submarine had entered Gisborne Harbour, found bugger all to interest them & left. I imagine that would have been an impressive bit of seamanship.

            GDC have cleaned up the top of the hill… and have put in a new track up the ridge the Army men trudged to the lookout posts… But they demolished the Morse Operator bunker last year when they pulled the Astronomical observatory down)

            The Nearby Gun emplacement bunker is still there.

          • My father-in-law was in New Guinea during the Pacific War in the JIA infantry. He never saw action (I doubt he would have survived contact with the Allies). He did have his ship torpedoed under him at one stage, and caught malaria later on.
            He told me that the supply lines were stretched to their maximum and that logistics were terrible. His unit just about starved. Imagine the condition of any prisoners!

    Spark, 2degrees, Vodafone band together online after te reo Māori criticism from Twitter user
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2020/09/spark-2degrees-vodafone-band-together-online-after-te-reo-m-ori-criticism-from-twitter-user.html

    “I don’t want it on my phone. Change it now, or else I’ll switch providers.”

    When a Twitter user asked if New Zealand could “get back to normal” now Māori Language Week has finished, Spark said Te Reo is already “a normal part of our country”.

    “We see this as a celebration of culture, a chance for education and acceptance of both those in our community and inside our workplace.”

    “We will continue to encourage and give tools to those who wish to expand their knowledge and cultural understanding.”

    TVNZ apologised for showing Cindy’s statement as they had to retract as Cindy got the story wrong. Lol

  29. NZ Election 2020: ACT announces infrastructure policy
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/09/nz-election-2020-act-announces-infrastructure-policy.html

    ACT says it would allow central and regional governments to establish 30-year infrastructure partnerships in order to streamline projects if elected.

    Three-decade infrastructure partnerships would “devolve revenue and responsibility to regional governments and the private sector, while strengthening accountability and oversight from central government,” he says.

    “In exchange for receiving infrastructure funding, regional governments will be required to meet high standards. Central government would monitor outcomes and future funding would be tied to performance against expectations.”

    Seymour says the ACT policy would allow infrastructure decisions to be made based on economic need and getting the “biggest bang for the infrastructure buck”, while preventing infrastructure being used as “vote buying”.
