  1. Talking politics, Chinese, NZ & global.
    This is the company that seems to have released the video linked down below.

    GTV Media Group logo.svg
    Founded April 20, 2020; 6 months ago
    Headquarters Buffalo, New York, United States
    Key people
    Steven K. Bannon, director
    Guo Wengui, advisor and fundraiser
    Total equity US$300 million (2020)
    “Exclusive! Hunter Biden’s Sex Tapes, The CCP’s “BGY” Infiltration in the U.S., Evil Alliance to Dominate the World”
    16 minutes 37 secs.

    First 20 seconds is a WARNING [that becomes a bit lurid later]
    Then it is sort of a little crazy talk that is sub titled.
    [It is almost like a “Get Smart Plan, organized from Chaos”??]
    The first plan is the BGY plan
    The 2nd plan is the 3f plan to forment;-
    Weakness, chaos, destruction which is in place in the US.
    It has been fast successful and will cause a lot of damage to the American’s lives & assets. and damage will be like 9/11 and even much more. [economic??]
    It is coming, Be prepared and it will pervade the world.
    Darkness by the CCP kleptomanics [I think it may be spoken by Taiwan or “free Chinese”]
    No one is safe.
    At 1 minute 15 WARNING it then goes into the blurred porn of Hunter Biden and the lighting of a spiff [??] 13:35
    After that luridness then goes to give thanks to Mr. Alvin Jiang, (Mr Jiang Zhicheng) Mr Zhang Hongwei Chairman of the Orient Group Inc. Apologies for the discomfort. …..
    The tape then goes on and prints out a statement. I found the ‘quote’ below.

    Exclusive! Hunter Biden’s Sex Tapes, the CCP’s “BGY” Infiltration in the U.S., Evil Alliance to Dominate the World
    秘密翻译组G-Translators 53 mins ago
    We apologize if the video has caused you any serious discomfort! But it is for the sake of justice that we, the New Federal State of China, have made the video public. Because the friends of the communist are our enemies.

    We will not allow anyone to steal from the Chinese people!
    We will not allow anyone to enslave the Chinese people!
    We will not allow anyone to abuse our children!

    The video shows only the tip of the iceberg of what is important in the Chinese Communist Party’s Blue-Gold-Yellow (BGY) program. They take advantage of all those Western politicians, celebrities, and their families who are greedy for Chinese wealth, and threaten them by getting hold of and recording their sex and drug videos, forcing them to sell out their countries and people, and even their own national security in order to cooperate with the Chinese Communist Party’s world domination.

    U.S. presidential candidate Joe Biden is 100% controlled by the Chinese Communist Party as one of the most successful political instances of the BGY program. He is also a target of the CCP’s 3F plan, which aims to “fall, fail, and fell,” to weaken, destroy and kill America!

    The Chinese Communist Party’s use of this tactic to threaten Biden and his sons and to bribe them with large amounts of wealth is one of the major causes of the disputes over the South China Sea, US-China trade, intellectual property rights, and energy prices, etc., as well as Biden’s provision of large numbers of CIA intelligence agents in China to the Chinese Communist Party.

    The Chinese Communist Party has such a BGY program in the United States and in several Western countries in Europe.
    We will have millions of videos and photos of government officials, corrupt people, traitors, and criminals colluding with the Communist Party to dominate the world.

    It doesn’t matter what country you come from, what ethnicity or color you are, or what party you belong to.
    The next person to be abused may be your daughter, your wife, your sister, so there are no party or ethnic borders when it comes to eliminating the Chinese Communist Party.


    At this stage it has 194 comments, and it seems that many are not happy with the flow of money from China, through the CCP to Americans,

    This is the connection Steve Bannon is linked to, and part of “New Federal State of China”, that has only been going this year.
    They make an issue of Hong Kong and its loss of freedoms.
    Well a rabbit hole to go down, some further links, and names to google if one wishes.

    I think in a way this may be swept under the carpet, or camouflaged, or it will erupt, and go viral on the media.
    Any way, one can with more knowledge of some of these things decide for your self.
    A mixture of motives here, with Steve Bannon, and the Hong Kong Free China,

    The other issue, is just what is going on in NZ?
    Pants down Brown comes to mind,

    Why did and how did Fonterra be so suckered, loosing hundreds, nay more like 1000’s of millions + on Chinese investments.

    KiwiRail bought 48 diesel locomotives from China, but 40 contained asbestos despite the Chinese being repeatedly told no asbestos was to be used.
    The clean-up cost $12 million, but more asbestos has been found.

    The specifications for the reinforcing steel on the Waikato highway was slack and cost NZ??



    • Further to this Chinese rabbit hole.
      The 3 universities in New Zealand tied in with the Confucius Institutes. 2 of them made:-
      formal complaint from the University of Auckland and Victoria University of Wellington stating that it is “inflammatory, inaccurate and unprofessional”.
      They alleged “…manifest errors of fact and misleading inferences…” and “… unsubstantiated assertions and outright falsehoods constitute a serious breach in accepted standards of scholarship.”
      Brady’s employer, the University of Canterbury, [the 3rd one with a “Confucius Institute] launched a formal review of the paper in August 2020.
      In response, numerous international scholars signed a public letter to Cheryl de la Rey, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Canterbury, criticizing the review of Brady’s scholarship as being without merit and a threat to academic freedom.

      Then not only the funny goings on with Anne Brady but also the politics of both NZ parties.
      Brady had been blocked from submitting evidence to the New Zealand Parliament’s justice select committee examining potential foreign influence in the New Zealand elections.
      The four Labour members of the justice select committee, including former chair Raymond Huo, had decided to exclude Brady on “procedural grounds” that her testimony had passed the deadline; Huo had been named as a pro-CCP influencer in Brady’s “Magic Weapons” paper.
      Their action was criticized by the opposition National Party including electoral reform spokesperson Nick Smith.
      In response to media coverage and criticism from the National Party, the Labour Party announced that Huo had reversed his earlier decision and extended an invitation for Brady to speak to select committee members.


      This is her report in July 2020

      So what effect in New Zealand with Chinese Sister Cities.
      Always good travels for a mayor, and entourage. Contracts to sign? Finance to negotiate?
      The cities in NZ with links are Ashburton, Auckland, Dunedin, Gisborne, Hamilton twinning to 2 Chinese cities, Hastings, Hutt, Invercargill, Marlborough, Masterton, Napier, 2 for Nelson, New Plymouth, Palmerston North, Queenstown Lakes, Rotorua Lakes, Selwyn, Taupo, Tauranga, Timaru, Wellington with 2, Whangarei.

      So with the CCP pushing for bribery, corruption, just how free is NZ.
      What can go wrong? But what do I know about politics and this rabbit warren?



      • “Oh what a tangled web we weave when we first practice to deceive.”

        More will emerge before the election. Biden is toast but will he stand down. Harris is just as corrupt.

        Trump winning the election is the only solution.



    • The main point of this video is about FBI sitting on laptop and Chinese deals.

      “Sen Ron Johnson With Maria Bartiromo”
      11 minutes 01 seconds.

      Hunter cracks into China about 2013.
      The swamp can only talk about Russia Russia, as they can not mention China.
      The conflict of interests noted years ago, but was ignored by the administration.
      Why there is there still no subpoena on Hunter Biden?



  2. There always used to be a Labour Party picnic in Christchurch held each Labour Day Monday, you would know because invariably it would be broadcast on the radio being cancelled because of bad weather. Today it is raining, the tradition continues.



  3. The man gets stuff done. President Trump and his team has brokered another peace deal in the ME, this time between Sudan and Israel.

    Meadows on whether Trump plans to fire FBI Director Wray after election

    White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows weighs in on Biden’s troubling comments about the oil and gas industry, law enforcement and the Hunter Biden investigation.



  4. I don’t think that this novel coronavirus is much more deadly that a bad flu.
    Here are the latest Japanese statistics from Toyokeizai. (Please note that Japanese culture of being slim, wearing masks to trap cough spittle, and not doing the huggy-kissy thing really helps them.)

    Please turn your attention to the chart on the right, third one down, titled “Tested Positive By Age” (As of 21 October). This is only for those who have tested positive. If people have been assymtomatic, they will probably not have been tested. Also in Japan there is a bit of a stigma at having been positive for “Covid-19”. Many people will have avoided testing for fear of being labelled “unclean.”

    Looking at the age groups, you can see that the death rate is extremely low (although it does rise by age). This rising death rate is likely due to the increasing rate of co-morbidities with age. Examples include cancer, hypertension, diabetes, reduced lung function (due to smoking among older males), etc.
    I ask you: why have our liberties been taken away? Why are we so sheep-like?
    Data: https://toyokeizai.net/sp/visual/tko/covid19/en.html

    Also see the Effective Reproduction Number chart immediately to the left. You can scroll the chart back to see when the Effective Reproduction Number was much higher. If this number can be kepy at 1.0 or below, the disease will die out.



  5. Interesting read. Our chief censor doesn’t sound like he is too keen on overly authoritarian government intervention or control re hate speech. I thought this was going to be a complete gangbang on alternative viewpoints on covid etc but was surprised at the more reasonable summation of the difficulty around defining what hate speech is and where to draw the line:


    Shanks calls the Chinese ‘social credit’ system “horrific”, and furthermore:

    Causing offence is not the right yardstick, he says.

    “You might take offence at something I think is entirely reasonable”

    Things that make you hmmmm…….



    • Further on in the article he continues to blame “extremists, or white nationalists or neo-Nazis”. People he wants deplatformed and forced into silence who are only the first steps to “far right” and then “right” viewpoints. He never mentions anarcho communists, cancellers or any of the toxic left.

      That is not somebody promoting free speech. You, me, many of us may disagree with extreme views but the way to stop that is by exposing and talking about them. Not by driving them deeper underground.

      And we all know where a platform that allows the government to control who can say what will go. Especially with an unfettered Labour governmenr.



      • Yes good point Pascal, and Simpleton below. I was just expecting a much more rabid attack. More like “we must do this, we must do that” style of article.

        I guess that it can be viewed as a softening up too, for when the ‘conversation’ becomes more fervently aimed towards its obvious targets.

        As it stands, nothing in the MSM is going to speak against the toxic left. They are a huge part of the problem as we know.

        This is just another of the seeds being scattered. What they yield is the worrying part.



    • It touches on Qanon

      Davis says conspiracy groups, particularly QAnon, are making big inroads in this country.
      “My research has shown that the sinister QAnon conspiracy group has a large and growing following here,” Davis says.
      According to a New York Times investigation, QAnon emerged in late-2017 alleging a cabal of Satan-worshipping paedophiles is running a global child sex-trafficking ring and plotting against United States President Donald Trump, who is battling the cabal.

      Is that part reasonable, or a disinformation on Qanon.?
      I posted this late last night.
      This is where professional doxxers set up to practice their “executioning” work on Trump supporters..
      This has been on stream since Trump came to power.
      An expose on one of them.
      Harassment, censorship, and intimidation of Trump supporters by any means necessary is a key element of the “color revolution” strategy.
      And Brandy Zadrozny of NBC News is a key hatchet woman working on behalf of the oligarchs. ……
      …….. She poses as a neutral reporter, but like so many other “journalists” in 2020, she is simply an ideologically-motivated hitman. …..
      ………. wrote a guide on “how to” unethically dox anonymous people online. Zadrozny appears to use paid, dark-data search engines to dox the personal information of anonymous Trump supporters online — obtaining property records, phone information, and even their Amazon wish lists.
      Zadrozny is part of a press corps deployed to cover “misinformation, disinformation, and extremism” after the Internet fueled President Donald Trump’s win in 2016.
      This new journo beat was created to surveil, slander, and censor online voices that counter ruling class narratives. ……
      ……. biggest target in 2020 is Qanon. ….

      As the article shows, she was the one behind discrediting and killing off of Qanon and there are many other points and issues raised by it.
      “Tucker Carlson broke story of NBC reporter ‘Brandy Zadrozny’ accused of online intimidation”
      4:07 : • Oct 22, 2020
      This is more a of a summary.
      Then there is the shoot back by “Brandy Zadrozny” through her employers NBC as reported to “USA today”.
      NBC News pushed back against Fox News Thursday, issuing a statement that said “Carlson dangerously and dishonestly targeted” Zadrozny.
      “Brandy represents the best of investigative journalism and of NBC News.
      She is relentlessly well-researched and sophisticated in her understanding of disinformation and conspiracy theories on the Internet and within some social media communities,”


      So who is the offended, and how does a debate, that seems to have rabbits busy digging rabbit holes in a warren of holes.

      Further some more truths?



      • Noting the “Donald Trump watch” link and note why they say they are saying in this link.
        Where all the names of supporters of Trump are shown up that are near you.

        I first thought a few days ago, that this was just an over top letter that was sent out a week ago to Trump supporters. Possibly even a false flag.
        This is a report from a New Hampshire, “#walk a way” from a once was Democrats girl.
        Ok it has hit the local USA news there,
        “Trump supporters in two New Hampshire towns receive letters threatening their homes.”
        13 mins : 00 secs.
        It as the 9:50 mark, that she picks up on the overall threat to Republican supporters and noting the “Trump watch” above link.

        I hope we do not become too paranoid, but also to be wise and careful, even here in NZ.
        Support others openly or even quietly, a word of encouragement, just being there, financially, or other ways. Transport, or a bit of accommodation.

        We know not to trust a journalist, and going by Victorian police, certainly not to trust ours either, with information they do not need.



    • “Causing offence” is a horrible measure.
      First of all, what does “causing offence” mean?
      Does it mean “deviation from my norms”? If so, then I will be offended when you do any of the following:
      – Act in a way that I would not
      – Wear clothing that I would not
      – Eat what I would not
      – Drink what I would not
      – Ask questions that I would not
      – Question my norms in any way



  6. The main road to Auckland Airport will be shut for five consecutive nights this week, from Tuesday to Sunday.

    An overhead gantry, sometimes referred to as the Pirate Mast, is being removed.

    Three new gantrys will be installed as part of a major project, called Northern Network, to widen George Bolt Memorial Drive.

    The upgrade would allow for high occupancy vehicle lanes, with shared pedestrian and cycle paths alongside.

    During the closures, drivers can still take an alternative route to the airport.



  7. First ‘murder hornet’ nest discovered in the US

    Heavily protected crews worked to destroy the first nest of so-called murder hornets discovered in the United States.

    The state Agriculture Department had spent weeks searching, trapping and using dental floss to tie tracking devices to Asian giant hornets, which can deliver painful stings to people and spit venom but are the biggest threat to honeybees that farmers depend on to pollinate crops.

    Crews wearing thick protective suits vacuumed the invasive insects from the cavity of a tree into large canisters Saturday. The suits prevent the hornets’ 6-millimeter-long stingers from hurting workers, who also wore face shields because the trapped hornets can spit a painful venom into their eyes.



  8. Because I went looking elsewhere on the Ne,t after viewing video put up by Kea yesterday on the laser rust removal machines I have now had a few ads pop up.
    For if Viking, if you wanted to try one or look further into it here is a Chinese model —extremely cheap compared to the European ones so it is obviously a case of buyer beware.




    • It would seem that pointing the finger at Russia, was to hide how far CCP had moved into Washington DC and those political elites.

      The story seems like a “Get Smart & Chaos” episode, and would seem to be easy to refute of its craziness.
      The connection to a free “New Federal State of China” only 6 months old.
      I have my doubts too, and it is difficult to weigh up.
      Then there is the fudge, that seems to consistently come out from Joe Biden.
      Then I have to wonder if some of that is Doctored, but still all up, as Americans must do, weigh up the choices, getting as close to the source as you can.
      Forest Gump, Maxwell Smart, seem to be able to practice the best reasoning . 🙂

      From the Chinese connection links I posted early this morning at 7:07

      But truth is stranger than fiction.



  9. If this theory (which I do not buy) that many farmers voted Labour to keep the Greens out is true, then it looks like they have not achieved anything because Labour will do the same if not worse.


    As for the Government, who do they think will get NZ out of the economic mess?



    • ACT vote took on average 4000 votes per rural electorate, That may be the Party vote, but then how did the electorate vote do. (Sorry can not find the source where I read it).
      Farmers, plus business people, contractors?
      Take that from previous National majorities, would often as not tip that electorate to Labour.
      So was their really a boost to Labour?

      Others made desperate, by the lockdown, fear of covid, increase reliance on government schemes, may have pushed some votes to Labour.

      I hope better analysis of the voting numbers come out, but I believe it is a meme put out that farmers voted Labour, with a few so called plausible reasons, that really do not make sense.

      The media and Labour are basically quite happy to go on with that, hoping that mud will stick, an identity politics, as then a divide and rule in the community, to get all the “feel good” factors into laws & regulations.
      So a hate. distaste, or disinterest of farmers can be harnessed from others, that is National and ACT, supporters upset at the loss, giving them some reason to point a finger, and to feel positive about not backing farmers, do not care about them, to mask and get through a Labour green agenda.

      Wake up to the divide and rule, the Identity politics.



        • I do note Ross12 that you do not buy into that theory also.

          Sure National is down, but to say farmers changed their vote in large numbers to Labour is ludicous.

          Those figures are just too broad.
          Needs more details, and as discussed earlier, who is a farmer? how many are there?
          30,000? 40,000?
          There is no proof of farmers voting that way, unless you count lifestyle farmers, and the few green farmers and that is too few.

          As even pointed out in that article, that farmers were going along with sustainable measures for fresh water, knowing that is difficult.
          A lot of the fencing off waterways, riparian plantings, were guided but with farmer costs, and then town and some city sewerage up grades were well helped through the 9 years of John Key government.
          So farmers were ok with that, and Labour continued, but also started ramping up this new criteria, but sort of held back in parts.
          I do not believe farmers forgot that, nor would risk the change Labour were threatening.

          This divide and rule, makes me think of the insidious agenda 21 and now agenda 30 that certainly has become more ingrained in the past 3 years, as pushed on by the CoL government to regional & district councils, and others like DOC, iwi, greens all pushing the skin colour of UN greenery.

          I accept that many business’s like tourism, mainly in the country side, feel real badly affected, by lockdowns, and may like the media, believe more money is likely from Labour.

          To follow UN agenda 21/30 so much % must go into “bio diverisity” “sustainable” “conservation” so the councils are now increasing laws over native trees, to Significant Natural Areas, with no compensation, and any Reserve to show the UN that the area is increasing per their guidelines.
          That way the government gets a positive report on this at the UN.
          Then the iwi want to clip a ticket for what may be called government lands in admiinistration.

          The catch is, will they oppose the Chinese if those councils borrow, and need to repay debt. Just mill the trees for Chinese chopsticks?
          Or is it like the training young maori for fishing, sold out to overseas crews?



        • I figured that is where the ones I knew leaned ACT, or were National stalwarts.
          Noted also some went to New Conservative, & even Advance, not for the old time religion but to be more sure of pulling out of the “Carbon Zero” and ETS and such.
          So all looking to coalesce around National, but that is making a split vote to let Labour through on the electorate seats.

          I was even shown that Mark Richardson tape by a farmer, a first time ACT electorate voter, who said he could not believe that farmers would vote Labour.
          I told him then, that Garner was just a turn coat and Richardson talking tactically was really just absorbed into unicorn dust.

          Even on this blog I advocated 2 ticks ACT, just to narrow the usual large majority to National, and make them revise more thoroughly what they are about.
          Not meant for closer run electorates, but party vote Act, and Nat for electorate.

          Well we will just have to mull things over, gather up more facts, information, and understanding, to know ourselves & principles, to work things out for the next 3 years.



    • If farmers voted for Labour to save them from the Greens environmental policies then they were very naive as David Parker had made it abundantly clear months ago he was backing the tough agricultural environmental policies. Dumb, just plain dumb to vote Labour.



        • Simpleton is correct.
          Farmers are a maximum of 3% of the electorate
          Most farmers I know have had an absolute guts full of National perpetuating and supporting Labour and the Greens crazy water ,biodiversity ,consents for everything policies . Gun theft etc etc.
          Historically when in power National repealed nothing.
          And they were lurching further and further left in a hopeless quest for votes

          There was nowhere credible to go but ACT.



  10. If Pedo Joey wins the Election as bad as it will be for people that love their freedom around the planet, just think about the train wreck that will follow and the entertainment value for those of us that are interested.
    Of course with Trump gone the last chance of a world without globalism, political corruption and new World order will be gone forever and a majority of stupid NZrs couldn’t give a fuck.



  11. Employment New Zealand had received a report that Mickey was not paying proper wages to his staff & sent an inspector out to interview him.

    “I need a list of your employees & how much you pay them”, demanded the inspector.

    “Well”, replied old Mickey, “There’s my farm hand who’s been with me for 3 years. I pay him $800 a week plus free room & board. The cook has been here for 18 months & I pay her $600 a week plus free room & board. Then there’s the half-wit who works about 18 hours every day & does about 90% of all the work around here. He makes about $20 per week, pays his own room & board & I buy him a bottle of whiskey every Saturday night.”

    “That’s the guy I want to talk to, the half-wit”, says the inspector.

    “That would be me”, replied old Farmer Mickey.



  12. Latest from Hobsons Pledge.

    “Three more Northland councils will vote in the next few days on whether to introduce Maori wards so now is the time for you to email councillors to explain why such wards are racist and not wanted.
    We believe that Maori wards are not necessary for council decisions, which are mainly to do with roads, clean drinking water, sewage, drainage, libraries, sports facilities and cultural centres, all of which are for the benefit of everyone irrespective of ethnicity.

    Any decision based on race is, by definition, racist. This means any decision to set up a race-based voting arrangement is itself racist.
    Neither is a decision on Maori wards based on the Treaty of Waitangi because all the treaty said about rights was that Maori were to get the rights of British subjects. There is nothing about separate representation there.
    At least, because setting up a Maori ward or constituency is a significant change in representation, such a proposal should be put to the community at large as a vote before proceeding.
    By email, please ask these councillors to vote against a Maori ward.”
    The email addresses of councillors in the three councils are:

  13. Is anyone surprised at these random assaults when there is virtually no repercussions for violence?

    Grey Lynn assault: 10 young people randomly attack young man on the street

    It is understood the group of young men began a conversation with the victim outside his work, and he was then attacked without provocation. People from neighbouring shops came to his aid.

    Police officers caught up with 10 young people near the entrance to Grey Lynn Park on Williamson Ave, about 500 metres away.

    No charges have been laid at this stage, the spokeswoman said



  14. Prisoner will ‘be held to account’ after leaving two Corrections workers injured in ‘unprovoked’ assault

    Cave says both staff members are receiving support from managers and colleagues, and the staff member not receiving hospital care has already returned to work.

    An investigation is underway as to how the prisoner was able to damage the cell door, which is designed to withstand considerable damage, and how it can be prevented from happening again.

    Cave says corrections staff have been working with the prisoner to improve his behaviour and he will be held accountable for his actions.

    “He will continue to be held to account for his actions, and police have been advised.”



  15. Good, brief article on Quadrant today:

    “There is no coming together. There is no possible rapprochement between the loonies that now occupy the political Left and sensible people.”


    Kaepernick is living in a fantasy world … doesn’t have the balls [to ride along with the police or experience gang-ridden public housing estates] … he should live it for a day and then write his damn manifesto … [he] has no understanding and no sympathy for those good law-abiding blacks who understand that the problem in this country is not white supremacy; it’s not the police; it’s crime and family breakdown.”



      • Agree Kea. NZ has been largely free from opiates since Mr Asia times but it won’t last. What happens in the States will happen here as sure as night follows day.

        Don’t look to the Customs or Police hierarchy for assistance. They’re still stuck in a time warp where they jump out of a chopper to confiscate some old hippy’s dope plants growing on the riverbanks but firmly believe if they stick their fingers in their ears & go “nah, nah, I can’t hear you” then the P crisis will disappear. The Godaddled & the conservative cheer them on while getting their inspiration from Reefer Madness.

        Expect the same when Fentanyl starts wiping out our dimmest citizens.



        • Nasska, you will find that “helping” addicts only attracts/creates more addicts in the area.

          The disgusting state of Wellington CBD is a great example. I have not seen such hopeless cases in developing countries.



              • For a few years, two Sundays out of three & at least one other weekday I’d cart livestock over the hill to the Ngauranga abattoir. This was before the River Road Expressway & SH2 wound its way through the mean streets of Upper Hutt.

                The place was a study in depression. The wind blew the rain nearly horizontally, the cold could freeze the marrow of your bones. People would be walking head down into the southerly gale to line up for train units which never ran on time. They’d then be squashed into carriages heading for Wellington where they’d repeat the walk to their offices so they could fruitlessly shuffle carbon copies of never to be read files. All day, five days a week until death released them.

                My passengers had it better. For them the misery was nearly over.



      • I am not a fan of treating addicts as criminals.

        BUT: They pray on ordinary folk to feed their addiction. All those junkies spend millions on drugs. That money is rarely earned honestly.

        Addicts are ruthless dangerous predators. Who can never be trusted. Don’t ever forget that.

        Only trained hardened professionals should attempt to help them. Mawkish wet well-doers, will only be dragged down with them.



    • I know one of the big pharma pushed the supposed slow release opiates and made their billions.
      Slowly and belatedly this has become known, and through documentaries, and lawsuits that Purdue and the Sacklers are seeking to settle allege that their company’s sales practices were deceptive for OxyContin.
      Also 4 other big pharma companies settled last year.
      So a restriction in supply? well sort of, so a change.

      However this is a follow on of the “opium wars”
      For one thing, the Communist Party, through its cells, controls every business of any consequence….
      Beijing tightly controls the banking system and knows of money transfers instantaneously….
      Furthermore, fentanyl cannot leave the country undetected, as virtually all shipped items are examined before departing Chinese soil.

      Chinese gangs are large and far-flung.
      In China’s near-totalitarian state, it is not possible for them to operate without the Communist Party’s knowledge.
      And if the Party somehow does not know of a particular gang, it is because it has decided not to.

      China’s postal service has to know that it has become, among other things, the world’s busiest drug mule. ….
      ….. 13% of packages from China contain some form of contraband, including fentanyl and other deadly substances. …..

      The regime has adopted the doctrine of “Unrestricted Warfare,” [malice] explained in a 1999 book of the same name by Qiao Liang and Wang Xiangsui.
      The thesis of the authors, both Chinese Air Force colonels, is that China should not be bound by any rules or agreements in its attempt to take down the United States….
      The regime, consequently, is using criminality as an instrument of state policy….
      China’s officials will stop at nothing to increase the power of their regime. …


      This article raises many questions, but the answers are elusive.
      Market, demand, supply readily and cheap.

      Trump is right in calling China out, for what is said to be producing enough supply of fentanyl to supply every man & woman on the planet.
      Also about the criminal gangs, from where-ever, Columbia, Mexico, Chinese, Iran, that brings in other crimes & corruption as well.

      The comment section runs through a gambit of trying to figure what to be done, from free market, to restriction.

      Truth of what is happening, may not solve the problem, but still, it all needs to exposed, with the trade, the profit making deals, and just who is involved.

      Frankly I do not know how to fix that problem for individuals, nor would I condemn the ones who can not change.
      If is Jesus, Buddha, Hindi, his noodlum, whatever it takes, as it can be so much of drag down on a family, as in part, they have to be ruthless, to save themselves as well.
      But if they can, to be there, for the turn around if they are lucky.



        • In part maybe, to help make the dedicated communists ones to hold to a reason, that it perhaps do to others as they will do again to you if they can.
          But really a means for control in China, and to be free to control the world, and increase Chinese power, as that article says.

          I am not up in on Confucius or Buddha philosophy, but my feeling is that as per the video that was for “free” China, posted at 7:07 am, a number of comments did not seem to want to bring down the USA, but see Biden & son as traitors to their own USA, and the CCP also profiting from enslaving the ordinary Chinese were also traitors.

          As the above Gatestone link
          Mao Zedong, who founded the People’s Republic of China, created a kill-or-be-killed society, and its values are inhumane.
          as we know how it controlled its own people with the “red guard” of “cultural revolution”, a cleansing of their own, so the Mao “little red book” is all the thinking you need; or else.



  16. A win for democracy

    A Gisborne man has received an apology from the district council after he was barred from contacting councillors for being “unreasonably persistent”.

    The chief executive at Gisborne District Council (GDC) blocked Peter Millar’s email address on February 14, 2019, after staff raised concerns about his repeated requests for information about the city’s inner harbour redevelopment. He was also blocked from commenting on the council’s Facebook page.

    Nineteen months after action was taken under the Unreasonable Complainant Conduct Policy, discussions between the council and Office of the Ombudsman have led to Millar’s email address being unblocked, so that he can request a review of the decision.

    “I make no apologies for being persistent,” Millar said, noting he was a marina berth-holder at the time.

    In this situation, it looked as if someone at the council had taken the view that this resident was a “pain in the neck”, Asquith said.
    “In democracy we have freedom of speech. Pains in the neck, in my view, are to be celebrated and to be accepted.

    “If we start cracking down on people’s ability to say things, even though we might not like what they have to say, then that’s a very dangerous road to start going down,” he said.



  17. Why are people going nuts for Halloween? It’s a crap, commercialised American holiday. Or am I missing something?

    Kiwi families in our neighbourhood are stocking up on hundreds of dollars of candy and chocolate to hand out to kids.

    Meanwhile, I feel like sitting on my porch with the garden hose, ready to squirt any little fucker that even sets foot on my walkway.
