Apologies for the break in transmission over the past two days. I didn’t know they would stuff it up like they did. Still not quite finished, so I cannot guarantee that it will not happen again. Whoever asked for the uptick button change in colour is to blame. It cannot be done so live with it as it is.

If you want to put a post up for discussion at any stage, please send it to me and I will post it.

Thanks for your patience and welcome back.

  1. The bigger the lie, the less likely anyone will believe you have the gall to tell it

    If you ever needed proof that there is a global cabal running things and you doubt that we’re being lied to about every thing, watch this clip of Angela Merkel’s whole body shuddering uncontrollably during a ceremony.

    But the MSM tells us there’s nothing to worry about she was just a bit thirsty. FFS we’re talking about the most powerful person in Europe, who has just spent the last five years unleashing an irreversible cultural invasion on the peoples of the EU. That woman has something seriously wrong with her!

    However, not one of the main media outlets is shouting “BULLSHIT” as any sane person would. They all just fall in line and hope to sweep it under the carpet.

    I’ve been thirsty before and I haven’t felt the need to deal with it by shaking my whole body uncontrollably and almost off the ground But hey! I like to keep an open mind. So, I’m prepared to admit I’m wrong if any of the esteemed posters here recall having any similar experience where being a bit thirsty made you behave like that?

    I have no frigging idea what’s up with her, but it’s something major. It’s either rapid onset of withdrawal from some immensely powerful drug or the body running out of some powerful drug being used to suppress massive neurological problems – or maybe it’s what the fringe is saying, proof that shape-shifting lizards struggle when in the hot sun for too long.

    Whatever it was, the Ukrainian President had been fully briefed on it, because he didn’t bat an eyelid. He wasn’t surprised at all.

    There’s something seriously fucking weird about so many of the current crop of world leaders, from socialist Cindy’s meat and two veg, to Hillary’s fits and eye-rolling, to May’s dancing, to Obama’s inability to make sense when he’s away from a teleprompter, to Biden’s sniffing, to everything about AOC, to Macron’s old woman fetish. They all make my skin crawl.

    They’re not like the rest of us.

  2. Human Rights Commission acting underhandedly? No never! Not a hard-core alt-left hate speech organisation like that doing something sneaky

    So, it turns out the HRC are consulting on what white/male/old people they should accuse of racism/hate speech/islamophobia/sexism investigate next. Amazingly, this “most open and transparent” consultation hasn’t come to my attention! I’m guessing that most of the readers of this blog don’t belong to muslim organisations or left wing activism groups hadn’t heard of it either.

    I’m going to take them at their word (dangerous I know) and I’m thinking of submitting. Here’s my list:
    1) Investigate the systematic discrimination and racism against white people by the state. At every turn we’re assaulted with exhortations to positively discriminate in favour of minorities.
    2) Investigate the widespread and systematic discrimination against men. On all the most major of indicators (rape in prisons, deaths at work, age of death, amount of taxation paid, suicide rates, employment in nursing and teaching, over-representation in the most dangerous professions) men are on the wrong side of the statistics.
    3) Investigate the teaching profession, where aside from men being effectively excluded from the profession, there is a massive bias against employing people from the centre or the right of the political spectrum. Opinion poll after opinion poll show that right-leaning parties gather consistently close to 50% of the vote, yet the teaching profession is heavily occupied by teachers of left of centre political views. If there isn’t balance in the political leanings of the teaching proffession there is nothing to ensure that children are presented with a true diversity of learning opportunities.
    4) Investigate the state sector hiring practices. Almost all state sector organisations are heavily over-represented with left-leaning employees. Anecdotal evidence suggests that on average 64% of public servants vote for left-leaning political parties – this can only be achieved if there is discrimination against centrist or right-leaning potential employees. Clearly in breach of the Bill of Rights. You could start by a pilot of the HRC, gathering evidence on the political leanings of your staff and ensuring that your organisation reflects the proportionality of Parliament every term to avoid accusations of political bias and pandering to one side of the political spectrum.

    Here’s a link to the questionnaire, it could be fun as ACT are going to OIA the HRC to get the submissions so they can hold the HRC to account and find out why that they disregard any suggestions (no matter how many of them there are) that aren’t from the “woke” side the political spectrum (as we all know they will). (Again as you would think, it’s am incredibly dodgy questionnaire with leading questions designed to gather feedback that allows them to go after the things they want to – but one can always make ones feelings known in the “Other” section.)

    (Sorry about the double-hit, saved these from the past two days of disruptions)

    • Holy’s proposed changes where at fault according to him. I suspect the buttons were wiped out due to being over-written in the script or the Style was f-ed up. Since WordPress is an automated process, Holy wouldn’t have had a lot of choice in the matter (i.e. a conflict in naming conventions).

      Since I believe Holy stated something along the lines of the colour of the up or down vote buttons are what caused it, my previous paragraph is probably very close to the truth.

      I should have paid more attention to the source(kept a copy) yesterday as a compare and contrast to see if I could have isolated the problem at a granular level.

  3. I am not too concerned about the gun buy back thing.
    But what the hell is the “Base price”
    Is it only guns that have a base price?
    It just smacks of COL bureaucrat talk for we will make it up.
    I hope that no one hands their guns in.

      Watch you gunna do about it?
      They are going to ID you first, so they visit later.
      Then dismantle it an chuck it in the bin, then tell you how much.
      NO, you will not be allowed to leave with it!

    • Nobody should hand their guns in. This is Labour taking away the citizens right to defend themselves, both against criminals and against the oppressive powers of state that Labour is creating.

      They are also boosting defence spending; how long do you think it will be before we live in a one-party, totalitarian state? Oh, we’ll have mock elections that will see Labour + Greens elected year on year, for sure.

      But taking away the people’s means to resist is part of their master plan. Christchurch was a good excuse for them to do that.

  4. So Christopher Luxton wants to be a National MP and then obviously become leader eventually.
    Well go right ahead as it will doubly make up my mind to not vote National as the party is soppy enough already without an ultra diversity and inclusiveness wimp like Luxton pulling the strings.

  5. Nice to see yous all. Missed the intelligent conversation.
    Now, more seriously how are we going to get Luxton to join ACT.
    Time for the National Party to jopin L:abour and the Greens and just go away.

    OH and someone is upset that after 6-8 years Collins is suing them because she can’t rent her house out.

    • Saw that lazy hatchet job by churnalists.
      The respondents knew they were purchasing a problem property, but thought they’d get away with it. Geotechnical report only confirmed what they knew about the EQC settlement. Their inaction damaged the property below and rendered it uninhabitable.
      How in hell did Judith Collins get to be the bad guy in all that?

      • Well, reading the article they had requested the building permit from the council and were busy resolving the problem when the slips happened. It looks as if the delay was from the council side, not from them, but the article doesn’t have a detailed enough timeline to know if they delayed needlessly.

        • And why the previous owners didn’t spend the eqc money on the property. If they got the house at a discount due to the previous owners having received the payout, had they no idea of likely costs going forward.

          Did a bank lend or did they have cash?

  6. I see that Andrew Little wants to get more Labour voters by letting them sign up in their pyjamas at the supermarket and vote at the same time.
    This is just evil and madness.

  7. Our voting choices next year as I see it:
    Greens – alt left
    Labour – extreme left
    NZF – left
    National – centre left
    New Conservatives – centre right
    Act – right

    Gives us on the right only two choices. I would be interested in your opinions.

      • A vaguely better concept is the political compass: https://www.politicalcompass.org/analysis2

        This would still make ACT right wing but in the Right-Libertarian quadrant. The New Conservatives would mostly be in the Right-Authoritarian quadrant.

        Greens, Labour, WinstonFirst, National would all be in the Left-Authoritarian quadrant with the Greens occupying the most top-left position on the graph and National being closer to the middle but still in that quadrant.

          • True, most of what was entered was done by a moron. It was the graph that was more useful than the idiot who populated it in the link you gave.

            WinstonFirst seems to be the most correctly placed party on the graph. Though more authoritarian seems more likely. Peters seems to love State intervention.

            The Peter Dunne party always played the middle to be as much of a political whore as possible. So that placement is utterly wrong.

            The Greens are in no way “Left-Libertarian” and as far as I’m concerned never have been even under Donald or Fitzsimmons. Sure, members like Nándor Tánczos might have been classified as Left Libertarian but overall the party has always been authoritarian.

            How did either Maori or Mana parties have any libertarian focus? Another bunch of control freaks.

            Labour has always been authoritarian but not right wing (Taxinda being her nickname at the time). Plus, they need to be classified as far more authoritarian.

            TOP as libertarian? What was the enterer smoking when he entered that? TOP was one of the more anti-liberty parties in 2017. Effectively wanting to force people to rent their own homes to the State.

            National at the time did not lend itself as authoritarian as the graph states. I think it has drifted there since under Bridges (and Collins). It’s also not that right-wing on economic policies, especially with all the beneficiary pandering they did.

            You’ve already spoken for ACT, so no need to re-hash that.

    • Can you safely re-use organs from somebody who has been euthanised or is there harm from the chemicals used?

      Thinking of the prisoners though; imagine that happened in NZ. Labour convicts you for hate-speech or hate-think and then gifts your organs to a member of the Commissariat. The far end of the spectrum, but I’d think at a minimum a prisoner has the rights to their own body.

      • Not to the same extreme, but I know of someone who had a massive stroke from spotting cannabis and they were a heavy user, they were happy to accept her organs. I don’t know what the preferred euthanasia drugs are, and yes I know not cannabis, but I was surprised that they used hers.

        Apparently, at least some of the Chinese criminals agree to their organs being recycled. But if they don’t agree, the organs are just a resource, right?

  8. Well Gorse i have been a Nat man ever since i was weaned from my from my mother politics as she was 2IC in one of the big unions down here & staunchy Labour of course, but this is the first time i have no idea what to do the last 2 years Sarah Dowie has been to my workplace with visitors i have had her billboards on my lawn and donated but their support of some of this COLs idiotic ideas has me wound the fk up & how can i in good faith vote for a party that is essentially all but in name Labour lite, Mr Seymour is speaking to me and no doubt many others on this blog but i am wary of his immigration stance + i love a Kiwi battler and since DS is a lone voice for sanity he is being targeted by our MSM & social media dicks on a daily basis and has stood strong against them good enough to buy the man a beer at the very least

      • Tamaki’s Church is modelled on the US Money churches:-
        Seventh Day Adventists (not pay tax on Sanitarium ‘profits’) and the Mormons/LDS.
        Each has a tithe of around 10% of income and target many who can least afford it.

        Tamaki is doing little different to what they do; it is just the yankee $$$ churches have been going much longer (over 150 years) and have refined PR to not get the flak.
        It may be the money is staying locally instead of filtering out to Kirin Breweries or Heineken Breweries offshore. Some of it still makes it back to the USA via Harley Davidson and Germany via Mercedes!

        The whole Destiny church idea leaves me fairly neutral but if it gets professional liars/journalists in a tizzy then it is a public good.

        I see Tamaki’s church is to Latter Day Saints as Trade Me is to Ebay.
        -the local version of a multinational business model.

  9. Having a break in transmission for a couple of days was actually good for me as I went and had a read of KB for the first time in a couple of months and it reinforced to me how good this new blog was.
    The day I opened KB it had an abortion thread and it really bought home to me how the religious right have really over run the blog spouting on about gods word and whatever else the holy book said.
    Israel and the Palestinians seems to be another topic which brings them out in mass to preach the word.
    These guys actually have more in common than they realise with the religious Muslims they so despise, the inability to think for yourself and form your own conclusions as the word of the holy one is all that is required.

  11. One of the people I work with has one of these, a Rocket Book Everlast. It looks like a very useful device and with two daughters that are enjoying their drawing and artwork and both school age, that seems like a perfect way to save on paper and notebooks and to help digitise the notes you take. Bonus? There’s a three pack for sale from their Australian branch with free shipping. And if you leave it in the cart for a few days they’ll email you a discount code.

    Oh and, 3 – 2 = 1. Wonder what will happen to that last one? 😉

  13. Watching the AM show this morning and listening to Christine Rankin, it was quite sobering.

    I am however getting sick and tired of people who are not Maori being questioned as to whether they can speak to Maori values due to their apparent ethnicity or lack thereof.

    Christine Rankin has a Ngati Maniapoto whakapapa as it turns out so that made the world of difference, some of us are doomed to never make a meaningful contribution, due to a lack of appropriate ethnicity and its inherency.

    Christine Rankin is a Maori success story then? Same with David Seymour, I can still remember the look of discomfiture on Marae (I think it was) on tv when minor party Maori MP’s got to pitch their policies and they couldn’t exclude Seymour.

  16. Great to see the PM making good use of her time, why attend parliament and front the real problems of NZ.
    Jacinda is doing all the hard lifting for the greatest tree plant of all time. One more planted.only 173,000,000 to make good on the COL promise.
    Pissed myself laughing when I saw this, please point to the person that is going to plant the tree?

  17. I guess the Press’ Editor has never heard of Stefan Molyneux and Lauren Southern when he wrote the following dribble? You know, when Goff proudly removed their ability to use public (taxpayer and rate payer funded) venues?

    Or maybe it’s because they’re foreigners that’s it’s not important. How about Don Brash versus Massey University and in particular the vice-chancellor Jan Thomas (another problematic Australian in New Zealand)?

    What a moron.

    It is easy to see that Act’s proposals are really a solution in search of a problem. Less sympathetic commentators might call it a political stunt that has no hope of becoming law. National leader Simon Bridges, who generally support’s Act’s line on free speech, doesn’t agree that the Human Rights Act needs to be revised and struggles to find examples of threats to free speech.

  18. I’m directly involved with the whole earthquake-strengthening laws at a Council level. (as a consultant) I did wonder how the new legislation post-Christchurch earthquakes would hit building owners in the pocket, and surprise surprise big time. So big money is corrupting Councillors? Hee haw! (by the way I have no idea how some folks in high-risk areas are going to be able to afford upgrading their commercial premises to current standards)

      This is the sort of conduct we expect from banana republics and not a respected long standing democracy like New Zealand.

      This is completely in line with Little’s past attitudes.

  19. Listening to Shaun Plunkett this afternoon. A young bloke who was visited by burly police last night and phoned Shaun, a family friend, afterwards to say he had been frightened even though he had nothing to hide. As a young guy he got involved with a criminal gang but after being charged and photographed for a crime and receiving diversion and released, he has turned his life around. He is 6 months away from gaining a business degree, is setting up a business and is about to start a whole new life. The reason for the visit from the police? He has a tattoo of an iron-cross. The police informed him he and everyone else who has a tattoo of the same ilk will be finding coppers on their doorstep and have to justify their beliefs. The Christchurch shooting and the COL’s fantasy that white supremacy is virulant, is just the excuse the COL needed to attack our democracy and law abiding citizens. This is appalling abuse of power by the COL. Matt Nippert will be expanding his lists of political dissidents as we speak.

        I di have similar thoughts about some Maori women in law lectures who felt more comfortable in small groups of other Maori due to whakama (shame, embarrassment) which stopped them participating in lectures.

        I, on the other hand, was the chief participator, much to the chagrin of most.
