  1. Morning, maybe vegans are more like cows than we registered. People have been eating meat since time began, I doubt there were vegetables at the beginning of time so who cares?
    Have a good day looks like rain all day. Be safe.

      • Certainly dire north of chch. Talking to an agent today it seems even locally that whiskey bottles are taking a hammering , a lot of it will be the loss of hyped up cindy induced land values .most sales now are 30% down on the world is ending hype of 2022. Add in 10% interest and shithouse lamb prices its a bit of a disaster if you dont have irrigation and black and whites.

  3. Was the offender licenced?
    Was his weapon of choice registered?
    Was that what the police was investigating at first?

    https://twitter.com/i/status/1801223929492611470
    14 secs : June 14th 2024
    Was that a real peaceful “alleluia”+ sound in the final seconds?
    No mention of that by the police or in the article.
    .
    ….. gunman was shot dead by police from the RAID branch in Marseille.
    He had threatened to set fire to his apartment block and had thrown a Molotov cocktail at the police officers deployed.
    …. 34-year-old gunman was shot dead …. police on Thursday morning ….. Marseille,
    .
    …. two investigations into the case. The first for “attempted murder of a public official” and “death threats” and the second to ensure that the suspect was fatally injured in self-defense.
    .
    The suspect threatened to set fire to his building and barricaded himself … ….. first attacked cleaners by threatening them with a saber….. …. police officers. ….. …pelted with at least one Molotov cocktail, according to an amateur video we have obtained.. … .. the police quickly retreated to avoid being hit by the burning cocktail.
    …… Despite negotiations, the suspect refused to surrender.
    .
    The elite police then intervened.
    The perpetrator had a bottle filled with petrol in one hand and a firelighter in the other,” the prosecutor explained.
    The man was well known to the police and the courts, …..

    All in French.

    Ready for his own crematorium.
    .
    Yet the dead man was called a “gun-man” & no report of the gun found, even if had run out of ammo, nor report of a gun being brandished or fired.
    A vehicle in the “gun man’s” hand would have been just as dangerous as a deadly weapon.

  5. It was Saturday morning and John, an avid hunter, woke up ready to go bag the first deer of the season. He walks down to the kitchen to get a cup of coffee, and to his surprise he finds his wife, Mary, sitting there, fully dressed in camouflage. John asks her, “What are you up to?” Mary smiles, “I’m going hunting with you!” John, though he has many reservations, reluctantly decides to take her along. They arrive at the hunting site. John sets his wife safely up in the tree stand and tells her: “If you see a deer, take careful aim on it and I’ll come running back as soon as I hear the shot.” John walks away with a smile on his face knowing that Mary couldn’t bag an elephant — much less a deer. But not 10 minutes pass when he is startled as he hears an array of gunshots. Quickly, John starts running back. As John gets closer to her stand, he hears Mary screaming, “Get away from my deer!” Confused, John races faster towards his screaming wife. And again he hears her yell, “Get away from my deer!” followed by another volley of gunfire. Now within sight of where he had left his wife, John is surprised to see a cowboy, with his hands high in the air. The cowboy, obviously distraught, says, “Okay, lady, okay! You can have your deer! Just let me get my saddle off it!”‘

    • Our governments, seemed to be convinced by the elites like the so called self acclaiming emeritus Professors of academia, like Spoonley & his sycophants, keeps on with the schilling media pushing for more immigration.
      That sets the stage to “open borders” propaganda.

      The worst part is the censoring, abusing, denigration, called heartless, etc., any one who questions this, to prevent any actual debate & discussion.

      I agree that many of the migrants to NZ are hard working, which pleases the employers.

      However I also note that there is a serious increase of numbers of ones, with not a great education, with few skills if any.
      They have become couch surfers, feed via State TV propaganda, so have agreeably settled for what the government, foodbanks, opp shops, will provide along with the bene’s & accommodation allowances.

      That state of mind, then leads to major problems, like “instant gratification” “being a victim” with a short term cunning.
      The “idle hands” then allows major mischiefs to occur, and a form of self protection in becoming a “rent a mob” protesters, enrolled via KFC treating etc.. + vote.

      So why do we not take care of all our own citizens in the first place, or more importantly, get them to look after themselves, to become educated, (budgeting) become skilled, to provide for themselves,

      It is like a ship that has struck the rocks, for whatever reason, & another ship comes along to aid in the rescue.
      It is not to go on the rocks also, as another useless “virtue signals”

      One of the main marine laws of the Seas, is not to endanger your crew & passengers.
      A marine court will do the Captain & Officers if anything bad happens to the rescuing ship. !

      Immigration is Bad For Britain | Douglas Murray
      https://youtu.be/1ehGhwfd4sM
      12 mins : Feb 1, 2014 : Oxford Union :

      The debate point was :—
      “Mass Immigration is Bad For Britain”

      Why do governments point to the value of increased GDP, when in truth, per capita, it seems reduce, and puts many into “struggle street” on benefits.

  6. Interesting question.
    Q: Given the utter depravity of the political left and how far they have already gone, what makes us confident that anything related to the election will be legit? Are there any surprises you see in store as we get closer to Election Day?

    A: We should not be confident at all. The Democrats will rig the vote as much as they can. The key for Trump is a victory that’s “too big to rig.” The biggest scam will take place not before election day but after. If Trump wins on election day, the electoral votes still have to be counted in the states on December 8, 2024 and then certified by the Congress on January 6, 2025. A new Congress (the one elected on November 5, 2024) will be sworn in on January 3, 2025. Sometime on January 4 or 5, 2025 they will pass a resolution saying that Trump is an “insurrectionist.” Under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, that means Trump is not eligible to hold federal office. Biden will not have 270 electoral votes and Trump’s votes won’t be counted. That means nobody wins. The election of the president is then thrown to the House of Representatives and a majority of the state delegations (with one vote state) can elect a president. This could be Nikki Haley or Gavin Newsom. Something like this did happen in 1800 and again in 1824. The Democrats won’t quit trying to destroy Trump so don’t rule anything out.

      Or pull their fingers out of their collective arses & sort out the lowlifes involved with the murder of Baby Ru.

      Unless of course they’re all tied up hunting down the Marokopa father who has challenged the Sisterhood.

    • In every nation there are a cohort of scumbags who read every new law being created, to figure out how to rort it. I saw this in Dunedin years ago, movers and shakers whom were laser focused on new legislation, spewed out by foolish legislators, so they could profit. Cities are packed with a scumbag class like this.

      The Safety Nazi industry is very powerful, and replete with self righteous puritanism. Nothing is more tyrannous than a busybody tyrannizing under the self delusion, they are doing it for to help, to save the world, or humanity, or whatever inane crazy psychosis. Cones on the street are a measure of our culture’s sickness. The more cones, the more sick.

  8. For the latest on the Great Marokopa Safari https://www.stuff.co.nz/nz-news/350309667/marokopa-locals-really-over-it-police-hone-find-tom-phillips. The reporter has interviewed some Marokopa locals & it seems that the reward of $80,000 may go unclaimed.

    # ““He’s obviously worried about their [kids] safety, and if you know the bush there is a lot of safety in the bush.”

    # “Whatever he’s doing, whatever is in his head, so long as he keeps the kids happy and fed.”

    # “a resident – who spoke to Waikato Times on the condition of anonymity, was frustrated by sirens wailing before 5am and three police cars speeding past their residence.”

    # “We are really over it, everyone is so done.”

    The Police won’t get far in a small NZ settlement like Marokopa if the locals choose not to play ball while the strident shitheads of the Sisterhood will be challenged to alter rural Kiwis’ sense of justice & fair play.

    • My bet Nasska is that Plod are not getting the “heaps of leads” they claim they are and most of these so called “leads” will be hopeful wannabes, with no knowledge of Marokopa or Tom Phillips, hoping to make a quid, but with no chance of getting the reward or just seeking to get a bit of attention themselves.

      After two weeks of this expensive bullshit, Plod will come up empty and Mr Phillips will just get on with life.

      The whole exercise will be futile and Plod will end up with a lot of egg on their pasty faces.

      • About the way I see it too. My guess is that the Sisterhood is pressuring plod for action so they have to wave the flag. In another eight years the youngest will be sixteen & it will be too late for the mother to get the DPB payment she expected as of right when she tried to boot the father out of the kids’ lives.

        Another report suggests that the Police are terrorising Marokopa residents with constant breath testing (excuse for the roadblocks) & doubtlessly they’ll be standing over the meth heads & dope growers of which there’ll be no shortage in a small isolated settlement.

        Could be a winning tactic but I doubt it.

        • Nasska, the way I see it, is that Mr Phillips has made Plod look a bunch of inefficient fools and by carrying out this expensive, futile exercise, they are hoping to save some face. Plod have not been able to serve Phillips with any Notice to attend Court on any of their trumped up Charges, like “Wasting Police Time” after the 2021 failed search for him or any of the Child Custody Charges they claim he is facing, or the alleged ANZ Bank robbery charge in Te Kuiti or the alleged robbery of the Piopio 4 Square. All of these make Plod look worse and less efficient than Doxon of Dick Green.

          As I said in my earlier post there will be a lot of people seeking this reward and claiming bullshit. Read about the revelations from the Okoriorie Hotel and Pools. The tart who claimed she saw Phillips and his family there. well you make up your mind.

      • This is why the Greens want to get elected onto councils. To them it’s a career option, and once they get in they’re very hard to get rid of. They don’t have to worry about working because all their mates are already ensconced in backroom jobs and they’re all singing from the same song sheet.This gives them plenty of time to be an activist, slow down anything useful and generally make a nuisance of themselves at our expense. Even better, if you master being a completely destructive pest you will eventually become an M.P. Exhibit A and well known mad woman Tamatha Paul. Need I say more?

    • As a former County Clerk and then in the top tier management of a District Council it saddens me to see the changes that have happened since 1989. One of the reasons I resigned out of it in 2000 was the increasing frustration of what was coming down from Government and the ever increasing rules and regulations that was isolating Councils from the public.
      My present area is still small enough were the view expressed by Trotter is not quite the norm – but I suspect it is ever creeping towards that.

  9. Heard on ZB this morning that Labour’s speed reduction changes are getting wound back. Specifically mentioned Napier-Taupo, but I presume Wairarapa Sth of Masterton etc.
    Also considering 120km/h on Roads of National Significance. They had Greg Murphy on, and he said it was all sensible. Said Labour’s speed reductions did nothing to address the road toll, and only succeeded in making drivers angry.

      The height of that is unreal, though a camera lense may seem to add to things or distort just how steep that drop was.
      What also seems amazing in the last few seconds, there seemed to be nothing left on the slope.
      And possibly most it went on even further down.

    • The First past the Post (FPP) can give very distorted results.

      In 2015 in UK Farage’s UKIP got 12.6% of votes and 1 seat of 650 seats
      Lib Dems got 8% and 8 seats
      The Scottish National Party got 4.7% and 56 seats with Wacko Sturgeon in charge.

      This is the lottery
      UKIP got nearly 3 times as many votes as SNP, but SNP got 56 times the number of seats !!

      The cookie crumbles in strange ways
      Conservatives got an absolute majority (330 of 650 seats) with a mere 36% of the vote.
      Then blew it with 5 PMs in 7 years !!

  12. I wonder what the other department is, or, will be.

    The Government will rewrite the country’s gun laws as part of its planned firearms reforms.

    “It provides a unique opportunity to take a systematic and considered approach to our laws, in a way that hasn’t been done in over 40 years. Rather than the rushed ‘government-knows-best’ approach that we have seen in the past, we will be consulting with New Zealanders to allow their views to be heard.”

    McKee said the firearms registry would be reviewed and the Firearms Safety Authority would be transferred from police to another government department.

      this is kicking the can down the road !

      Didn’t we criticize this when Liebour did this is 2018 ?
      More than a year to ‘review’ the speed limits then change them all on 1 July 2025, next year, anyway!!
      WOFT.
      Just set the date for 1 October 2024 so it is all sorted by Xmas.
      The councils will have to find money in the 12 months to 30 June 2025 budget anyway; to change the signage and gazette it.
      Just Fkg DO IT

      It s not like the car-hating cunts consulted with us to lower the speeds. And they were based on lies. No statically significant change to lives saved .
      No acknowledgement of drink driving, drugs, other impairments, poor driver skills, cyclist actions, shit road surfaces, inattention etc as the cause of accidents.
      Just a fake focus on speed. Lazy and dishonest.

      Bugger the consulting with these pricks. Never negotiate with terr//orists (what these car haters are)

  14. Russian Yasen-Class Nuclear Submarine “Kazan” Along With 3 Warships Arrive in Havana, Cuba

    The USA provoked Russia by moving NATO ever closer, including inside Ukraine. Now we see Russia provoking NATO by moving a nuclear capable fleet into position just a few miles from the USA coast. This follows the recent EU election where one of the key messages from the crushing of the pro-war leftists, was an EU citizenry rebuking the possibility of war with Russia.

    EU to Surrender Russian Assets to Ukraine

    Ukraine will receive $1.6 billion in frozen Russian assets this July, according to European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen who spoke at the Ukraine Recovery Conference 2024 on June 11. She stated that 90% of stolen Russian funds will go directly to defense, while the other 10% will be put toward the reconstruction effort. “My friends we have always said that Russia must be held accountable for its crimes and now we make Russia pay,” von der Leyen said.

  16. Now do NZ.

    The Stanford Internet Observatory, responsible for COVID-19 and 2020 election censorship, is being shut down.

    The DHS outsourced censorship to the Election Integrity Partnership (EIP), comprised of four organizations: the Stanford Internet Observatory, the University of Washington’s Center for an Informed Public, Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab, and Graphika.

    During the 2020 election:

    •120 analysts monitored 15 tech platforms
    •22 Million tweets labeled “misinformation”
    •Entire “misinformation narratives” targeted for platform-wide throttling

    The EIP claimed every “repeat spreader of election misinformation” was a Trump supporter.

    The cancelers are being canceled.

  18. Apparently, Albanese wanting to ban social media for children up to the age of 16 is due to older, more awake influencers swaying the kids into what the Government deems ‘wrong think’. It’s actually ‘right think’, and it challenges the kids to think for themselves. Can’t have that now, can we?

    • while i dont agree with the reasoning behind wanting to ban it, it would however be hugely beneficial if it were banned for under 16s.
      social media is ruining 2 going on 3 generations of kids, turns them into narcisists, degenerates and woke fucktards.

      best and worst thing to ever happen to the human race… computers and the internet
