    To consider this was months before George Floyd’s death on 25th May & then the ongoing riots.

    Equality, more like seeking “equitable”, that is picking a pocket, just putting it mildly 🙁

  2. Facebook has decided to reverse its sweeping ban on news content in Australia after the tech giant and the federal government agreed to amendments to the impending media payment law.

    Last week, Facebook made good on a threat to pull news content from its platform in response to the Australian government’s News Media Bargaining Code.

    However, Facebook decided to execute its “nuclear option,” surprising government ministers with its news ban.

    The ban removed all news-related content from its platform in Australia and prevented users from sharing it.

    The ban caused major disruption across Australia with the accounts of several non-media Facebook pages, including non-profit organisations, unions, businesses, emergency services, the weather bureau, and government departments.

    Traffic to Australian news sites also took a tumble, with an estimated 16 percent drop in web visitation once the ban set in.

    https://www.theepochtimes.com/facebook-reverses-news-ban-on-australia_3707290.html

    So shuting down all the freeloaders made the point. 16% drop in clicks.

    • This is an interesting twist on what happened. I look at it that FB backed down because they could see the Australian’s strong stand could repeat all over the world.
      For example the fact that the Met Office page was taken down should not have mattered , they have their own website with the same information. Places like the Met Office just had FB pages as another way to spread the information, it is not their primary outlet (at least I hope it was not their main way to give information)

    • We point a finger at the CCP system for their ripoffs, but really, many of us are not surprised.

      That U.K. deal, by the health minister, as some would say by “our own” is not just corruption but treason.

      It seems that straight “justice” is severely warped when “social justice” is systemically put in.
      “Social Justice” is a form of fascism.

      • I’m pleased you used the word ‘fascism’. Most folk (including YSB bloggers) get confused with ‘Marxism’. Marxism gives power back to the proletariate rather than ‘fascism’ which enables the bourgeoise.

              So embarrassing and punching above their weight.

              FYI.. Damien O’Connor is known as Mirror as when his West Coast constituents ask him a question his standard response is that he will look into it.

  3. Trump’s Full Response to Supreme Court Tax Return Decision
    By Jack Phillips
    February 22, 2021 Updated: February 23, 2021
    biggersmaller Print

    ​Former President Donald Trump released a statement after the Supreme Court’s decision to not halt the release of his taxes to a Manhattan district attorney, saying it’s a continuation of a “witch hunt” against him.

    Earlier in the day, the Supreme Court threw out Trump’s request to place a lower court ruling on hold that directs his accounting firm, Mazars USA, to comply with a subpoena that would turn over his tax records and financial documents to a grand jury convened by Democratic Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance.
    The former president sent out this full statement via email on Monday afternoon:

    “This investigation is a continuation of the greatest political Witch Hunt in the history of our Country, whether it was the never ending $32 million Mueller hoax, which already investigated everything that could possibly be investigated, ‘Russia Russia Russia,’ where there was a finding of ‘No Collusion,’ or two ridiculous ‘Crazy Nancy’ inspired impeachment attempts where I was found NOT GUILTY. It just never ends!

    “So now, for more than two years, New York City has been looking at almost every transaction I’ve ever done, including seeking tax returns which were done by among the biggest and most prestigious law and accounting firms in the U.S. The Tea Party was treated far better by the IRS than Donald Trump. The Supreme Court never should have let this “fishing expedition” happen, but they did. This is something which has never happened to a President before, it is all Democrat-inspired in a totally Democrat location, New York City and State, completely controlled and dominated by a heavily reported enemy of mine, Governor Andrew Cuomo. These are attacks by Democrats willing to do anything to stop the almost 75 million people (the most votes, by far, ever gotten by a sitting president) who voted for me in the election—an election which many people, and experts, feel that I won. I agree!

    “The new phenomenon of “headhunting” prosecutors and AGs—who try to take down their political opponents using the law as a weapon—is a threat to the very foundation of our liberty. That’s what is done in third world countries. Even worse are those who run for prosecutorial or attorney general offices in far-left states and jurisdictions pledging to take out a political opponent. That’s fascism, not justice—and that is exactly what they are trying to do with respect to me, except that the people of our Country won’t stand for it.

    “In the meantime, murders and violent crime are up in New York City by record numbers, and nothing is done about it. Our elected officials don’t care. All they focus on is the persecution of President Donald J. Trump.

    “I will fight on, just as I have, for the last five years (even before I was successfully elected), despite all of the election crimes that were committed against me. We will win!”

  5. Police “cant arrest their way” out of an organised crime problem…
    WTF  What are they supposed to do with them? Givem a hug and tell them to promise not to do it again,  very strange words to come from a police comissioner.
    Meanwhile if you write ALM on a bulldozer or refuse to wear a facemask on a bus the police will haras you,  guess thats cos its not organised crime… or even a crime at all.

  7. Labour, JacindaArdern and Megan Woods lie and spin on public housing.
    Half of ‘New’ public houses not accually new stock. Only half of the “new housing places souced by the Goverment in its bid to stem a burgeoning waiting list are additional newly – built houses, howeverdata analyzed by stuff shows “places sourced” does not mean new supply-figures and revealed fewer than 3,500 of those will be new builds.
    This is because while Kainga Ora (formally Housing New Zealand) will have built around 4,800 homes in that time frame, it will also have demolished 2,700 homes meaning more like 2,100 net houses.
    Another1,300 of new builds were souced from community housing providers, the rest of the “places” will have been leased or bought in the private market or sourced from Councils and Community providers and reclassified- a move call redirected.

  8. The rabbit, the hare and the tortoise lived in a small house in the woods. They didn’t have much food, so they decided that one of them should go to the grocer’s. They had a discussion and decided that it was the tortoise’s turn. So they made up a list, gave him a shopping bag and some money.
    The next day, the tortoise hadn’t returned.
    “He’s taking a long time.” said the hare.
    “He’s so stupid. I bet he can’t find his way home.” said the rabbit.
    The next day, the tortoise still hadn’t returned.
    “Where is that idiot?” said the rabbit.
    “I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s stolen our money and he’s not coming back.” replied the hare.
    The next day, the tortoise poked his head around the door and said, “If you’re going to talk about me like that, I’m not going.”

      • Fascism will form alliances with corporations, but will keep them firmly under its boot.

        “Everything in the State, nothing outside the State, nothing against the State.” Benito Mussolini’s formulation remains one of the most enduring definitions of modern fascism.

        Fascism is totalitarian by its very nature. There is no freedom; only submission to the will of the State. Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Therein lies the critical flaw of fascism: it relies on centralized morality.

      This is for my white trash, the ones the whole world hates
      The ones who voted for Trump then got labeled racist, but ain’t
      The ones with ball caps, “Make America Great”
      Who love they country to death and struggle on minimum wage
      Aye, they’re angry that illegal aliens taking work that maybe they could get
      Single parents with some baby kids hated for being a patriot
      All my life I’ve been white trash, all my life it’s been like that
      The whole world been left-leaning, I’m proud of the right who fight back
      Been chewed up and spit out; they scream, but no one listens
      They’re so in love and vote for Trump ’cause fuck a politician
      They’re our neighbors, they’re our soldiers, our men and women and children
      They’re the middle-class families who got forgot by the system
      Uh, in God we trust and all the guns are just backup
      Rocking camouflage, “Don’t Tread on Me”, get smoked like tobacco
      Yeah, we’re white trash, we’re rednecks, crackers since we were young
      We grew close, so we move slow, these colors don’t run, yeah
      .
      [Chorus: Tom MacDonald & MadChild]
      Call us white trash like we’re someone they know
      Call us white trash like we care, but we don’t

      Yeah, fuck you, I’m white bro, ain’t apologizing for shit
      You don’t like that I like my skin color, then you can suck my dick
      I like open gun laws, I like drunken bar brawls
      I like drinking Budweiser, I like smoking Marlboro
      We monstered up in them Monster Trucks, rolling in heavy machinery
      We all believe in protecting ourselves; if you fuck with us, we got that heavy machinery
      Drink beers in a lawn chair, nothing much going on here
      Probably get a few long stares, look like you don’t belong here
      Aye, please don’t get mad at me, I did not put up the barrier
      People are judging me for my exterior
      Man, are you serious?
      Say the word “white” and they act like they’re furious
      MadChild and I’m sick as fuck, white boy in my pickup truck
      Shotguns, my girl’s muddy, I’m a firecracker, we lit it up
      We just living our best life, don’t wrap us up in some whack scandal
      Beer and blood on a wife beater, jacked up on Jack Daniels
      Get my chicken at Colonel Sanders, judge me and I’ll backhand ’em
      Tom, pass me that red mask and I’ll beat his ass with an ax handle

      [Bridge: Tom MacDonald]
      White trash, drinking beer till the night pass
      White trash, light a fire if it’s cold
      White trash, we don’t wanna be high class
      White trash with a heart made of gold

    Brigadier General has just returned from Countdown Barrys Point Road.

    At the checkout I was asked if I wanted the account to be rounded up as a ‘donation’ to Rainbow Youth.

    “What??? You mean some sicko wants to sodomise his ‘friend’ AND get sponsored ‘by the inch’ from me??? Do I ask for money from HIM when I service my wonderful wife??? The name’s MACRISSOLE and I dinna opening mae sporran purse for ass fuckers, lassie!!!”

    Needless to say I paid the only supermarket account. I expect the trespass order to arrive in the letterbox shortly.

    • Tiger woods is so deified by your enemy and mine the media filth.
      Coz hes bleck!

      Just like Serena Williams.
      Margaret Court. 24 Ladies Singles Grand slam tiles.
      S Williams.
      Less than that
      Ergo, Williams is not the best, on any count.

      The Golden Bear – Mighty Jack Nicklaus
      18 Grand Slam titles.
      Woods.. less. at 15.
      He will never overtake the Golden Bear.

      Nicklaus was proficient in gridiron and basketball.’
      He was a natural athlete.
      He took up golf at 12 and succeeded..
      He was a good family man and father.

      Woods.
      Not a nice person.
      In 2002 he was paid NZD 4 million as appearance money at the NZ Open.
      He played badly.
      He only just made ‘the cut.’
      Approx the best 70 go on after 2 days to play day 3 and 4.
      He was not even in the reckoning at the end.
      So instead of turning up to the prize-giving where people had paid a lot of money to be – he was in town – he hopped on his private jet to to back to the States.
      So shitty golf and for 4 mill he could not play good golf nor even turn up for a few hours and be gracious.
      This defines his character and anything arising thereafter should be no surprise.

      In addition to underscore shitty local Govt even then in 2002, there were people who said they would pay the $4 million (USD 2 Mill at the time) but they failed to get the money. The balance of the bill was put on Kapiti and Wellington ratepayers without their consent.
      Woods is an arse.

      He has the morals of a buck rabbit.
      The media simply play him up coz of his skin colour.
      The media is racist.
      Woods was good for a while (13 years) but never ‘the best’.
      Just as S Williams is not the best women’s tennis player.
      He is in the company of the Greats: Arnold Palmer, Sam Snead, Jack Nicklaus, Ben Hogan, Bobby Jones.
      He fits in, just not leader of the pack.

      Any suggestion he is a decent chappie is Just fake gnews invented by fake bought and paid for media filth.
      I have little sympathy for this guy who gets way too much attention given he was last good in the 00s decade.
      We are in the 20s now.

      Filipino lives matter.
      Even the part-Filipino ones !!

      You mention Disney, and to then think of the unaccompanied minors, should be moved on to decent accommodation like those nice homes in Disneyland, California to house a few since the Disney/ABC executives love them so much!

      Then again probably not, as those executives, etc., would take advantage of those younger ones.

    5 mins 27 secs,
    First 3 minutes on the caging of minors,
    Then onto Climate Change must be put through with in 9 years.
    Then back to the detainment of minors, and even be a step backwards.

    There will be increasing numbers coming over the border, the corporations will be pleased, cheap labor and pressure to keep wages down, while Biden increases minimum wage to sound good.
    How else will those kids be “marketed” 🙁
    Does one really believe that this is the best way of taking care of these kids?

  12. JAG should be culpable for cancelling the upgrade of that road. We drove it last weekend and it is appallingly bad for SH 1. JAG stopping the. building of a new motorway has not lowered the number of vehicles, it has just caused delays, frustration and plenty of accidents and deaths that could have been reduced if there was decent roading. Northlanders are right to be aggrieved.

      • JAG cancelled roading due to political ideology not what was best for the road users. Hubby negotiated the road safely as did everyone else when we drove through the area last weekend. That’s not the point, it is a ‘goat track’ compared to the motorways not many kilometres south. Aucklanders wouldn’t put up with Dome Valley type roads for their SH1 and nor should they.

      We dont have enough poo-lice and to make matters worse, Cindy has halted poo-lice recruiting. The gangs can run wild and there’s nothing we can do about it because Cindy and co took our guns ( except for the buried ones ).

    • The fucking scum are everywhere here now, theyre the worst of the worst too as many of the mongrel mob that have turned up have been “moved along” from east coast of the north island due to attracting too much unwanted attention.
      The hierachy of the long time resident gang members is in turmoil due to these new arrivals having no respect for it and bashing and ripping off their own gangmates.

      Up untill 6 months ago you never heard of many incidents apart from the odd cop raid, now theres weekly beatings, home invasions and last few weeks several firearm incidents.

      Fuck the scummy pieces of shit, id have no problems if the poolice got issued permission to shoot to kill for anyone wearing a gang patch be it on their jacket or tattoo on their face.

    • Schools are safe. We know that cause Hipkins said so. All other large gatherings of people are not safe, even if its a small gathering on public transport so masks are needed there. But is perfectly safe for 25 kids to spend 6 hours together in rooms with no air circulation about a metre from one another. They also hug, share food and drink, ( and cigarettes) use common computer key boards and mice, touch desks and door handles, and generally do everything the rest of us are told not to, all the time. But, schools are safe. Interestingly the Papatoetoe spread is probably through he school kids doing this, but being safe. So it will be Ok. Hipkins and Cindy said they are not worried, as the cases are all linked, so even if it spreads, we’ll rest easy knowing where it came from.

      Are these Stupid, Moronic, Cunts for real?

      Disclaimer _ I work in schools and see all the above behaviour on a regular basis. I also Hate Hipkins.

      I hope national realise they made a huge mistake not standing behind him instead of rolling him and paula. Simon may not have been liked but he seemed to get heaps of airtime in the media and was always landing hits, once he was rolled there was very little of national party on tv except for hitjobs and infighting.

      • ……” Simon may not have been liked”……

        This was National’s problem when he was leader & still is two leaders later. It doesn’t matter how good an opposition leader is, it matters not if he ruffles Mallard on a daily basis.

        What counts is the impression a leader can make on the electorate. Without a charismatic leader & some policies the average Kiwi identifies with National will be in perpetual opposition. Key & Ardern, like them or hate them, have charisma in spades.

        Bridges doesn’t.

          Id bet my left nut maybe even both that had simon bridges not been rolled national party would have polled a hell of alot better then they did, may not have won but i rekon they wouldve got mid to high 30s maybe even low 40%.
          Bridges got rolled for polling dropping under 40 so what the fuck is pathetic collins still doing there?

          • …..”Any opposition to Ardern is ruthlessly attacked, while her corruption, lies and malfeasance, is hidden”…..

            Yes. We have a media that leans so far to the Left that they walk in circles. Ardern is media savvy. She may be as shallow as a bird bath but she knows exactly what to say to attract the attention of the scum. As I pointed out before, John Key was cast in the same mould & most of we political tragics should remember a succession of hopeless Labour leaders who would rival National’s current bunch of no-hopers.

            In a world that hangs on the words of a nation’s president isn’t it likely that we will, perhaps unwittingly, choose leaders who express the opinions of the time rather than those who waffle about a future that only fools & necromancers try to predict?

            I doubt that the next National PM is yet in parliament.

    4 mins 12 secs. : • Feb 23, 2021

    First part to 2:01 on the wedding police invite to the bash.
    So it is ok to throw down to the ground, cable tie, hand cuff arrest a person for not having a mask.
    Here the police reverse as they claim for the “safety of the group”.
    Supposed to do follow up later? …. yeah right ….

    Then the burble filler stories start after 2:01.
    Then Texas dog, with snow, ice pool rescue.
    From 3 mins 14 secs the blow out tyre walk-a-bout wheel.

  15. How soon can we get rid of these mad shitters.

    CLOSURE TO ADD TO GLOBAL CO2 EMISSIONS
    Canadian company Methanex is mothballing a Taranaki facility at Waitara Valley after being shut out of gas supply. It is likely to result in the loss of jobs. It also operates facilities at Motunui and Port Taranaki. The company said, as a result the production lost from New Zealand is likely to be replaced by methanol made from coal generating significantly higher emissions.

  16. HUGE STIMULUS
    China is launching a wave of infrastructure projects totaling NZ$5.3 tln as part of a broader effort to stimulate consumption and growth. This new and enormous program is getting little attention in the West but it is world-scale stimulus and is more than double the US Biden plan of US$1.9 tln (NZ$2.5 tln).

    Except that the Chinese will get it done but Biden will forget by the end of the week.

  17. BEIJING TRIES TO SEPARATE WELLINGTON OUT
    Chinese media propaganda is calling the Five Eyes intelligence-sharing group, of which New Zealand is a member, a “racist, and mafia-styled community”. But it was careful to exclude New Zealand from its general criticism, saying we are “unwilling to get too involved in international conflicts”. This is a clear warning to Wellington for us not to risk using our voice to call out China’s human rights abuses. Both Labour and the Greens have human rights lawyers in their caucuses and it would be interesting to know their position on the Uighur disaster unfolding in China.

  18. The Reserve Bank is forecasting that house price inflation will rise above 22% by the middle of this year before easing.

    The forecast is contained in the release of supporting material for the RBNZ’s latest Monetary Policy Statement.

    The forecasts, prepared by RBNZ and CoreLogic have changed markedly in the latest MPS compared with the last one in November, reflecting how fast actual prices have risen (between January last year and January this year they rose just over 19%, according to the Real Estate Institute).

    In the November forecasts the RBNZ/CoreLogic were forecasting house price inflation of just 7.9% for the year to June. Now the forecast is 22.4%.

  19. A man in a hot air balloon realised he was lost. He reduced altitude and spotted a woman below. He descended a bit more and shouted, “Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.” The woman below replied, “You’re in a hot air balloon hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground. You’re between 40 and 41 degrees north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude.” “You must be a Labour voter,” said the balloonist. “I am,” replied the woman, “How did you know?” “Well,” answered the balloonist, “everything you told me is technically correct, but I’ve no idea what to make of your information, and the fact is I’m still lost. Frankly, you’ve not been much help at all. If anything, you’ve delayed my trip.” The woman below responded, “You must be a Green Party supporter.” “I am,” replied the balloonist, “but how did you know?” “Well,” said the woman, “you don’t know where you are or where you’re going. You have risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise, which you’ve no idea how to keep, and you expect people beneath you to solve your problems. The fact is you are in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but now, somehow, it’s my fault.”

    • sounds about right for our government, not sure if the partys are correct tho, when has Labour ever given us correct numbers for anything, would have thought it would be better as Act or at a push National and for the Greens you could have Greens/National/Labour or any of the other mincing minor partys.

  21. From Steve Otto(North Shore)

    Phuck.
    Years from now, some of you will look back & admit that you spent an entire year of your life wearing a mask, cooped up in your house & avoiding all the people you love. 😭 A year in your life that you’ll never get back.
    Every single day is a risk.
    Car accident, flu, etc.
    Our days were numbered from the moment we took our first breath. Life isn’t a race where we win against the inevitable! That has not changed since the beginning of time!
    BUT, we should not be forced to live in fear.
    We went from being a free nation to being told we:
    🚫 couldn’t go to school
    🚫 couldn’t go to church
    🚫 couldn’t go to our grandma’s house
    🚫 couldn’t pay respects to a loved one through a funeral
    🚫 couldn’t leave our homes
    …and when we were allowed to do these things, we were told:
    📢 how long we could be there
    📢 how far apart we have to be
    📢 which direction to walk
    📢 what to wear
    📢 what we can buy/not buy
    📢 where we could shop/not shop
    📢 whether we could sing/worship/take communion
    📢 what time we had to be home
    Yes, our health matters.
    But you know what else matters?
    ✅ Family.
    ✅ Friends.
    ✅ Church.
    ✅ School.
    ✅ Sporting events.
    ✅ Family vacations.
    ✅ Neighborhood BBQs.
    ✅ Life.
    ✅ Fitness.
    ✅ Hugs.
    ✅ visiting the hospitalized
    Etc..etc…
    💔 One day, you’ll hug your grandma, mom, dad, or brother for the last time.
    💔 One day, your best friend will cry on your shoulder for the last time.
    💔 One day, your child will play their last ball game.
    💔 One day, they’ll have their last day of school.
    💔 One day, you’ll spend your last day laughing with a loved one.
    💔 One day, you’ll dance your last dance.
    Don’t waste the days you have by living in fear.
    Your time here on earth matters.
    Live your life while you have the chance.

    • ……”But you know what else matters? ✅ Church.”……

      And there Steve may have introduced the hammer to the nail.

      Had National decided to attend to secular matters & spent their first three years in opposition formulating some economic policy instead of concentrating on when people can die, what they can smoke & left the running of women’s wombs to women we might not have this fucked up, totalitarian, nanny government micro managing our lives!

  22. “Today, New Zealand’s forests are being exported in their log form to China and other markets, rather than having the value added to them locally. This remains a risk as China have declared their intent of becoming self-sufficient in lumber within 20 years.

    “In many cases the wood processing sectors receive significant subsidies from their governments which makes competitive production in New Zealand a significant challenge. This is despite New Zealand’s competitive advantage of having one of the world’s largest sustainable plantation forests and renewable energy.”

    And of course, with carbon credits washing around by the millions the good old taxpayer will get sliced and diced and robbed once more.
    What the fucks the matter with our govt.?

    Really concerning the way businesses are being attacked by every little empire with their hitlers. Hundreds of thousands in fines for leaking or smelling, thousands in fines for getting rid of an employee. No wonder we have no jobs anymore. Barely worth the effort to employ people anymore.

  23. Queensland closed to Kiwis again 45 minutes ago.

    This will be repeated until the voters finally get tired of being scared by their governments and the media who get COVID advertising $$$.

    Perhaps never.

  24. The humble ramen master

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ei54o_TPFBA

    Ramen in Auckland is certainly more expensive than in Tokyo, but can be reasonably good. I miss the ramen culture. Still, with YouTube you can keep up to date with developments in the cuisine.

    For the keen and dedicated, here’s a video (Japanese only, sorry) of a ramen specialist who makes everything from scratch, even the noodles. Now that’s dedication! (This is pure culinary pornography and will appeal to the food lover.). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pD_ORQ9OuKc
