  1. Seems that all has gone quiet up at Pike River.
    A week or so back I commented on here that there were many truckloads of concrete heading up there – nobody seems to know what they were for, and nothing has been heard from up there since.
    Wonder whether they have all been re-entombed? Another of the governments re-sets !

    • The reminds me of Heather du Plessis-Allan with her claim of “put it this way: I’ve voted across the spectrum”. Sure: Greens, Labour, Jim Anderton is PC party, the Alliance and possibly even for Winston First (her husband is a cheerleader for them). She might have even voted for the honestly named socialist parties that pop up from time to time.

  2. Still on the West Coast, equipment has been spotted in the new Grey Base Hospital.
    For those not aware, the new hospital was built by the last government as a replacement for the present aging and dilapidated infrastructure, but since election day all work seems to have slowed to a snails pace.
    Recently the hospital has been repainted, probably with a 1 1/2″ brush, and now there is evidence that some equipment has been delivered, pallets of stuff covered in bubble wrap. I do hope that one of them is a machine that goes “ping.”
    Alas no beds yet though.
    Perhaps the DHB can do a deal with Pike River to take all the desks, computers and new carpet once they have finished with it, most of that will be “as new” as it has not been used yet !

  3. That cartoon got me thinking- The Left consider anyone who votes National/Act or Conservative etc to be ‘Alt Right White Supremacists’ (Don’t believe me? Have a read of The Standard sometime…)
    So once ‘Hate Speech’ laws have dealt with the mythical ‘Alt Right’ there will be no representation on any panels….Expressing our Political views will simply be illegal!

            • Hi Melahi i was having a squiz through your site last night, i am really curious about this whole TERF thing you have mentioned and that Louisa Wall throws around as an insult, it would be interesting to get your views on the subject as i might not be the only one confused as to what all this infighting is about and who is included or excluded and why, from my meagre understanding its mostly about anyone that dares to oppose the ranks of the gay sisterhood and then gets singled out for abuse, i am sure there is a lot more to it than that but it all gets a bit confusing i did ask my Nephew who is a gay & married but he has no idea & prefers to keep well away from the loonie side of things so any help would be appreciated if you feel like it

  4. Why is there or why are there no right wing news media outlets here in NZ?
    Surely they have the money to fund one or two.
    Why are so many (just about all) news media outlets left wing?

    • From what I’ve read (I can’t for the life of me remember where I read it, was by an old school journalist commenting on the current state of fake news/shitty journalistic integrity) one of the main issues is, in the past, becoming a journalist/reporter was almost like doing an apprenticeship, in the case of starting at the bottom at the news agent, learning how to chase leads, investigate facts etc etc. These days, kids go to university to study journalism, and with universities the world over predominantly being staffed with left wing liberals and virtue signalling social justice warriors, the graduates walk away indoctrinated with the same left wing, all about the feelz mentality. Hence why the right wing/common sense view or narrative is heavily outnumbered by the leftist MSM.

        • No, it is fine as part of education, there just has to be a counter-narrative told as well. I don’t want to shut anyone up if I am allowed my say as well.

          If politics is sub-consciously an unwritten criterion for employment, then the right wing needs to employ their own also.

It is to be resisted 100%. Never trust Labour. Never trust greens. All of them want to take our freedom away, make no mistake. Keep blogging!

    • Jenna Lynch “political journalist” on AMShow telling about Phil Twyford’s secret meeting with Phil Goff about city boundaries, not noted in his diary, no officials, can’t remember if any notes taken when National requested all information. Jenna didn’t believe it is a sackable offense, just Phil doing what Phil does. OMG. To be fair Duncan Garner said he has to go, it is a sackable offense and that Cindy is too soft on her ministers who stuff up. Jenna ended up hopping from one foot to the other trying to keep up changing her opinion to meet Duncan’s. She is as useless as the MSM’s mistress the Mad Queen.

      • “just Phil doing what Phil does” that statement would have never been uttered if it was John Key or anyone from National, why would you bother going into the media if you are going to let your prejudices get in the way of doing your job, just report the news we are not interested in your opinions or the way NZ journos somehow make the news all about them (Gower Hillary Barry etc being prime examples) just like this COL they think we need spoon fed information so we dont somehow hurt ourselves (Ch Ch murders being another example of that) isn’t it fun being treated like a naughty school kid

        • When you and your colleagues are living in an echo chamber with the likes of Tova O’Brien, is it any wonder they report it as they see it. That the MSM does not see the hypocrisy between how they treat Labour and the CoL compared to their near manic criticism of National shows how deeply embedded the MSM socialist views are.

        Is she the new Kiwibild Minister? I hope she held out for some special deal!
        Because she will need to leave at the end of this term.
        The Twit has stuffed that portfolio.

I’d love to be the developer with eyeballs shaped like dollar signs, knowing the taxpayer will pick up the tab for any cost overruns. It will never fly Philthy bastard.

    • Because the money doesn’t want there to be!

      There are no right-wing (or even impartial) news outlets because running a news network takes money and the Alinsky tactics of the left make it very hard to make money through advertising. And of course, for the remainder of those with money they don’t really want balance in reporting as it does not serve their purposes.

      The UN’s anti-white, anti-democracy, anti-Christianity didn’t just magically appear, it was funded to do so! The desirable outcome for the super rich/powerful requires understanding of how they view the human race. In their eyes, t’s split into three classes:
      – Alphas (the very few privileged super-rich/powerful
      – Betas the tiresome, democracy-loving, freedom-appreciating, increasingly growing middle-class who question and vote against the Alpha’s grand plans
      and
      – the Omegas, these are what the Alphas think of the vast majority of sub-humans who still exist on a level barely past the subsistence level (think the waves of IQ of 85 invaders welcomed into Europe by Merkel, or the migrant caravan’s being assisted by Soros and the Democrats into the US, or the refugees that Socialist Cindy wants to bring in under the UN migration pact).

      The Alpha’s want a world where there are no Beta’s to evolve up to Alpha level and start crowding and challenging the existing power structures. The Alpha’s grand plan, through bribery of the wannabe Alphas who run the UN (or the EU or the Senate or the UK Parliament) to promote policies which dis empower the uppity Betas. Mass immigration of Omegas from 3rd world shitholes seems to be the most effective way of subverting the ambitions of the annoying Betas. But secondary plans like convincing the Betas that they have to tax themselves into poverty to “Save the Planet” seems also to be gaining traction. White privilege/White guilt is effectively indoctrinating Betas that they’re to blame for the plight of the Omegas and the best thing Betas can do is de-evolve down to the Omega level where the Alpha’s want them to be.

      Anyway, come on fellow Betas, let’s help those Alphas and buy into all their insane policies and drag ourselves down to the Omega level as soon as possible (for the planet, or for Kindness, or for Equality, or for Diversity) the Alphas will feel much safer when we have resumed our proper place in society and they can go on with their privileged existence without the pawns getting in the way.

  6. Stuff(ed) has an article on Sugar today.
    What it doe snot say is why don’t the food manufacturers cut back gradually on the amount of sugar in their products.
    Eg a Can of coke has 6 teaspoons of sugar. That is madness.
    Why don’t they cut it back by one teaspoon a year, no one will notice the difference, and we will still buy it, and we will all be better off.
    Less obesity and no need for a sugar tax.

  8. Before I went for my shower this morning there was a story headlined on Stuff stating that one third of people pre-paying for their power had borrowed money from friends and relatives (presumably to do so).

    After my shower I couldn’t (can’t) find it.

    A shame because post-shower I was going to read it, not just to find out how the hell they would get such a statistic but also what the writer (or “experts” it “interviewed”) was proposing to do about the unfortunate fact that successive socialist governments have damaged New Zealand’s social structure to the point that a whole class of people literally have no idea how to fend for themselves.

    Do you suppose even Stuff can still get embarrassed by particularly blatant typewriter interviews?

    • Last night there was a report that Work and Income has over the past 12 months had a 45% increase in the number of requests for special payments (ie for washing machines, or similar needs). The report was not so much about beneficiaries asking for money but the horror of Winz suggesting beneficiaries try all other funding avenues before requesting Winz cough up. Apparently, according to the MSM, borrowing money from financial lenders and having to pay interest is not an option for our taxpayer funded beneficiaries.

    • A few nights ago I turned on my tv to find Nania Mahuta being interviewed by a blonde girl asking questions about the budget.
      Millions going to many different organisations each with non pronounceable maori names.
      Nania was so proud of them all.
      But in not one case did she actually say what they were going to do.
      It was all about helping Maori.
      But nothing about educating them, giving them some work ethic, some pride in themselves (not Maori culture). Getting ahead in todays modern world, like our asian immigrants do.

      • While I like to put the boot into the CoL, I’m afraid the police do not like competition. Most of the time when my friends have been involved in self defence situations, the police have tried to charge them for excessive force (charges never stuck). I can only think of two occasions where the police did not do this (and in one of them the scumbags pressed a civil charge…which also failed).

        If you can deal with scumbags without involving the police, I suggest you do.

        Still, the police attitude probably derives from some Labour policy from yesteryear.

      • Well now, here’s an amusing history lesson. Several 19th century Christian chapters were socialists or more strictly speaking communists. In fact, 19th century atheists (& socialists) detested the name communism because of its Christian connotations. That’s because the word communism was derived from the Christian word communion. Ergo, communism refered to the Christian form of socialism. Socialism, on the other hand, was a neutral term.

        Of course, the definition of communism changed in the 19th century but it is an interesting observation of its once Christian origin.

        Besides all that, Stalin happily used and abused the Russian Orthodox religion, i.e. he used them when they were useful (e.g. in waging war against Hitler the Anti-Christ) and abused them when they weren’t (in every other setting). IOW, Ardern has precedent to follow.

  14. “When I went to a non-Muslim school and I wanted to learn about my faith, they didn’t know what I was talking about, but in this school they can help me out if I need help.”
    In a speech at the ceremony, Bilal Ragued from the Algoritmi Education Trust Board recalled his own experience of growing up in a public school.
    “I was faced with a serious identity struggle, [I had questions like] what does it mean to be a young Muslim in New Zealand? How do I live my life in accordance with my religious teachings within an environment that doesn’t necessarily understand or appreciate those teachings?” he said.

    After the video the other day where children in an Islamic School are being taught to kill infidels, stone gays and more this and the drive to make it a public school for government funding makes me feel uncomfortable.

    This is New Zealand, we are a non-secular country. Schools are for education. Religion you can get from church. And yes, I believe the same should apply to Christian schools to Catholic schools, etc. unless they are privately funded.

      Children, all children including Muslim kids, need education not religious brainwashing in school.

  15. The USA womens’ soccer team who won 13-0 over Thailand are being slammed for ‘overdoing the celebrating’ in front of the losing Thailand team who are ranked at No.34.

    Lefty speak for the USA team should not celebrate being better than small brown people.

  17. Probably should have posted this in the morning, but I’ve been thinking as I was landscaping!
    Were HOLDEN to clever for their own boots?
    By giving Jethro Gayford a free ute to tow the boat? Was the boat another freeby?
    Will Holden, forever be called a gay ute?
    Would tradies and farmers rather be dead, than seen in a gay ute and have to put up with all the ribbing?
    I saw somewere that Holden have an ad on tv with semi blured out pitcure of lady and baby that looks like PM.
    Surely not, that’s a bit close to the bone!
    Have Holden moved away from their traditional customer and are now aiming more for the Robbo.
    You know the gay ute. Maybe they will come with a bud vase on the dash even!
    I would just like to finish, by saying thank you FORD! For not think up this deal!
    Why would want to be driving a GAYFORD!

    It sounds like some primitive tribal grouping?

    • I think it is the rebranded CYFS. Recently I jave been given the opportunity to work with a company that follows Te Ao Reo principles. (Hope I remembered that right). There is a definitive philosophy behind it and I am changing my perspective after dealing with people who embrace this. It is part of the unique culture that makes us NZ. Far more so than some other imports and when you begin to learn what sits underneath it, it makes sense.

      I don’t know how to articulate it better without sounding woke, but my view on Maori led organisations have changed after I worked with one. This one at least isn’t a caricature equivalent to the evil capitalist, you know?

      • Disgusting hate speech there editor, and so wrong on so many levels…

        The correct translation is ‘the ministry of our beaten, abused, discarded and murdered kids that you white cunts can pay us for & take away because we cant stop breeding’

        Obviously the Te reo translation was chosen due to the grossly over-represented number or Maori whanau that are involved with the ministry.

        Check your white privilege at the marae my friends, this problem is our own fault due to colonization hundreds of years ago and many generations before us…..

  20. A tourist wanders into a back alley antique shop in Wellington’s Cuba St.

    Picking through the objects on display he discovers a detailed, life-sized bronze sculpture of a rat. The sculpture is so interesting & unique that he picks it up and asks the shop owner what it costs.”Twelve dollars for the rat, sir,” says the shop owner, “& a thousand dollars more for the story behind it.”

    “You can keep the story, old man,” he replies, “but I’ll take the rat.”

    The transaction complete, the tourist leaves the store with the bronze rat under his arm. As he crosses the street in front of the store, two live rats emerge from a sewer drain & fall into step behind him. Nervously looking over his shoulder, he begins to walk faster but every time he passes another sewer drain more rats come out and follow him. By the time he’s walked two blocks, at least a hundred rats are at his heels & people begin to point and shout. He walks even faster & soon breaks into a trot as multitudes of rats swarm from sewers, basements, vacant shops & abandoned cars. Rats by the thousands are at his heels & as he sees the waterfront at the end of the street he panics and starts to run full tilt.No matter how fast he runs, the rats keep up, squealing hideously, now not just thousands but millions, so that by the time he comes rushing up to the entrance to the wharf a trail of rats four city blocks long is behind him.

    Making a mighty leap, he jumps up onto a lamp post, grasping it with one arm while he hurls the bronze rat into Wellington Harbour with the other, as far as he can heave it. Pulling his legs up and clinging to the post, he watches in amazement as the seething tide of rats surges over the edge of the wharf into the sea, where they drown.

    Shaken and mumbling, he makes his way back to the antique shop.

    “Ah, so you’ve come back for the rest of the story,” says the owner.

    “No,” says the tourist, “I was wondering if you have a bronze public servant.

    • I don’t know but QT was a complete debacle with the Duck snorting and frothing over any question that may have implicated the mad queen and Winston doing his best at grandstanding and obfuscating on Cindy’s behalf. David Seymour was shut down by the Duck for asking questions, as was Nikki Kaye for asking why the education minister had gone ballistic on FB as a result of criticism from a school principal?

    • just another Lie
      Ardern said she is a “keen student of history”.
      What a load of shit. If this was the case she wouldn’t be an avid supporter of socialism.
      It hasn’t worked anywhere in history.
