  1. Commentary

    Take a look at the following quotes from the Biden administration and Chinese Communist Party officials. Can you guess which country’s government made these statements?

    “Systemic racism … is a stain [on] our nation’s soul.”

    “America has a long history of systemic racism.”

    “In order to lead abroad, America must continue to address racial injustice and inequities at home.”

    “I’ve seen for myself how the original sin of slavery, weaved white supremacy into [America’s] founding documents and principles.”

    Racism in the United States is “a systemic and persistence [sic] existence.”

    “The challenges facing the United States in human rights are deep-seated. They did not just emerge over the past four years, such as Black Lives Matter. It did not come up only recently.”

    All of these claims—made by President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, U.S. Secretary of State Tony Blinken, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Linda Thomas-Greenfield, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian, and Chinese Communist Party Politburo member Yang Jiechi, respectively—have a surprisingly similar theme. According to the Biden administration and the Chinese Communist Party, systemic racism, hatred, and bigotry are deeply ingrained within American society.

  2. The current transport revenue system, drawn up by ex-transport minister Annette King, grew out of anxiety that the government had its hand in motorists’ pockets, taking money collected from fuel taxes and lavishing it elsewhere.
    What we have now is full hypothecation – that means that every cent taken from motorists, mainly in the form of fuel taxes and road user charges, is put into the National Land Transport Fund, managed by Waka Kotahi-NZTA which reinvests it in transport.

    Over the next decade, the Government plans to invest $48 billion in transport projects through these funding tools. That sounds impressive, but, according to officials, most of that is currently earmarked for maintaining “existing levels of service”. That means keeping roads free of potholes and continuing subsidies for public transport.

    That leaves 30 per cent of the fund for discretionary spending, which could be spent on new infrastructure. In other words, just $14.4b would be left for new projects over the next 10 years.

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/300287265/fuel-taxes-need-to-go–but-weve-got-to-find-better-ways-to-pay

    While King said back in 2007 that fuel taxes would be used to pay for public transport as well as roads, the magnitude of public transport funding now channelled through the fund means we need to rethink whether fuel taxes and road charges are really a hypothecated charge for road use, or a charge levied as a disincentive for private vehicle use.

    So, stop spending where its is mostly wasted. Buses, cycleways,people rail like Hamiltons dog.

    • Good post, thanks Viking. I object to paying tax specifically as a road user for any portion of that collected to be used for public transport. Let those who want public transport, pay the cost of public transport. I object to any local authority providing any transport subsidy through rates collected. Let those who wish to use the bus, pay for the bus.

      If public transport, buses, trains, need to be subsidised, then usage is not sufficient to justify them. Do not load the costs on non users.

      Well past time for these subsidies to cease.

    • $48 billion in transport projects

      Ok, half of that for orange cones so basically $ 24 Billion or $2.4 bill a year that included the reworking of the Kapiti Expressway surface that NZTA was in charge of; sorting out the Cambridge section when the steel rusts ..and so on.

      Q. What happens when tne Harbour bridge get trucks removed in 4 years and closed to cars in 7 years?

      A. there is your cycleway .

      My conclusion is that they are hoping cars will be banned or made prohibitively expensive/unobtainable for private citizens so they don’t have to spend.

      Think that is off the mark?
      They are already going back to old policies used in the 1960s and 1970s – controls, borrow and hope, taxes, limited access to things
      eg To buy a new car in the early 60s required Reserve bank approval and overseas funds.
      You wanted to send money to a relative in say, England, reserve bank approval.

      The circle of life.

  3. Discovery restructures operations as it beds down purchase of TV3
    A Discovery spokeswoman said the company was working to determine “the structure, skills and capabilities needed to achieve our goals”.

    “Our people are our priority as we undergo this period of change,” she said.

    Might be some sore arses in that lot.
    BUT nowhere does the word CUSTOMER seem to come into the narrative.

    That always seems strange to me. They went broke because they failed to satisfiy the customer.

    • TV3 has been loss making for over a decade now.
      remember 10 years ago S Joyce had to do a funky deal so they could renew their licence.
      Then they collapsed the company to avoid a $22 m (back) tax bill in 2013.

      it is only NZ on Air – our taxes – that keeps this 100% foreign owned piece of crap going.
      Over $10 million a year free money ; and they still lose money.

      It is like TV3 is on Working For Family (WFF) subsidy where they cant make ends meet.

      Factor that in when they start preaching bollocks.

  4. Duncan reckons the Nat Party internal review has been leaked to him. The Nats have missed the problem believing diversity on their front bench and stopping internal leaks and bad behaviour is what the National voter is looking for. Nothing new from Tova then Dunky.

    • The racist bullshit could go & the Godcrap that dictates people’s private lives should follow. Probably less than 20% of the electorate get close up & personal with Skydaddy yet 100% of National’s policies are crafted to cater to them.

      I am sure she meant that every opposition member has an office that isn’t earthquake-prone.

  9. I am about to leave on a covert mission to Rotorua, disguised as an Asian tourist.
    My mission is to survey parts of Fenton Street and assess levels of toxic entitlement reported to be emanating from some of the motels on said street. I’ll be using an advanced portable spectrophotometer, approved by the Japan Analytical Instruments Manufacturers’ Association to precisely gauge the level of “brown privilege” in those parts. I will compare my readings with the standard White Privilege background readings for a typical NZ middle earth city.

    Here is a translation of my mission brief: “Your mission, _______, should you choose/decide to accept it, … As always, should you or any of your team be caught or killed, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions. This tape/disc will self-destruct in five/ten seconds. Good luck, _______.”

    I may be able to report back on my progress from the field.

    I have instructed my solicitor to leave my collection of vintage Toyota and Mitsubishi mudflaps and wiper blades to Kea in case I don’t return.

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2021/04/judith-collins-says-it-s-absolutely-crucial-national-doesn-t-introduce-quotas-place-ethnicity-over-merit.html

    Judith Collins says it is “absolutely crucial” the National Party doesn’t introduce quotas or begin looking at people based on their ethnicity rather than their talent.

    Her comments come following recommendations in a review into the party’s 2020 election campaign and governance which suggested making Māori a “priority area”. It suggested embedding the Treaty of Waitangi in the party constitution and potentially appointing a Māori Director.

    • Yeah sure.

      The French Military.
      So they would still be going backwards !!

      They can only win when they invade small backward nations .
      No-where they colonised in first world today unless you cheat and included Quebec.

      Who saved them in 1914 to 18; 1939-45
      Mainly British and former British colonies.

      When they were sorted out by others, the cowards went straight back to Southeast Asia in the 1940s, leading to the Vietnam war;
      from the Vietnamese point of view, after they sorted out the froggies they had to contend with the War Of American Aggression.

  13. Here is the Maori text of the Treaty of Waitangi (1840)

    A chocolate fish for anyone who can find “Aotearoa”.

    KO WIKITORIA te Kuini o Ingarani i tana mahara atawai ki nga Rangatira me nga Hapu o Nu Tirani i tana hiahia hoki kia tohungia ki a ratou o ratou rangatiratanga me to ratou wenua, a kia mau tonu hoki te Rongo ki a ratou me te Atanoho hoki kua wakaaro ia he mea tika kia tukua mai tetahi Rangatira – hei kai wakarite ki nga Tangata maori o Nu Tirani – kia wakaaetia e nga Rangatira Maori te Kawanatanga o te Kuini ki nga wahikatoa o te wenua nei me nga motu – na te mea hoki he tokomaha ke nga tangata o tona Iwi Kua noho ki tenei wenua, a e haere mai nei.

    Na ko te Kuini e hiahia ana kia wakaritea te Kawanatanga kia kaua ai nga kino e puta mai ki te tangata Maori ki te Pakeha e noho ture kore ana.

    Na kua pai te Kuini kia tukua a hau a Wiremu Hopihona he Kapitana i te Roiara Nawi hei Kawana mo nga wahi katoa o Nu Tirani e tukua aianei amua atu ki te Kuini, e mea atu ana ia ki nga Rangatira o te wakaminenga o nga hapu o Nu Tirani me era Rangatira atu enei ture ka korerotia nei.

    • Another good point Brigadier as your titiled relative Governor George Hobson,concludes;
      “he iwi tahi tatau” (we are one people)

      This web site shows the intentions by the how the drafts of the Treaty were made, so as to be able to be signed in 1840
      So the “LIttlewood”, which is in James Busby’s hand writing was the final English draft.

      http://www.treatyofwaitangi.net.nz/ReadtheTreaty.html

      The book of this is online, and by clicking through, you can read through it.
      …. The document that has come to be known as the Littlewood Treaty is, singularly and uniquely, the only complete body of text, incorporating a Preamble, Articles I, II, III and Affirmation section, fitting all of the expected “final English draft” criteria. ……

      ….. Our legislators are knowingly using a rejected and discarded, early rough draft treaty version when fashioning and interpreting our laws, which was superseded by a final draft.
      http://www.treatyofwaitangi.net.nz/TreatyBook/Precis.htm

      This website, the book, “The Littlewood Treaty, The True English Text of the Treaty of Waitangi…Found Littlewood”,
      It is there online, free to be read, to scan, copy up what you think is important.

      Any one who brings this subject, and the issues then academia, politicians, media all suppress, denigrate, etc., in so many ways.

  14. The Minister of Finance has an insatiable appetite for power, a useful prop for the Treasury’s turf war against the Reserve Bank. Labour is campaigning to revive National’s 1990’s healthcare model. National vow to retain the DHBs that Labour introduced to reverse that model, but now wants to scrap. Amongst the madness, ACT’s Free Speech tour is packing halls. This week it goes to the mainland.
    Our annual Rally Honest Conversations is on track to sell out. Tickets available here. Meanwhile ACT’s Deputy Leader Brooke van Velden will file a motion asking Parliament to debate Xinjiang genocide.

    Foreign Minister Nanaia Mahuta’s speech on China has been described as just dreadful.
    Free Press has acquired an earlier draft of the speech. The MFAT employee who wrote it has not been seen lately, and the final version Mahuta delivered was quite different. Nonetheless, we’ve reproduced it below, in case you’re interested.

    Greetings,

    Now we turn to the question of how a small nation should respond to tyranny. Some believe there is only one human right, might.

    As the Milesians told the Athenians in the Peloponnesian War: since you know as well as we do that right, as the world goes, is only in question between equals in power, while the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must.

    That quote has thundered down the ages, but it has also been disproven by the ages. It is a short-term play. People who live by that creed find life is hungry, brutish, and short.

    In the long term, the world has become prosperous thanks to the rule of law. By recognising the inherent dignity and the creative potential in every single soul, we unleash the creative powers of a free society.

    No amount of power can protect a dictatorship from the laws of nature. Suppressing people requires suppressing their minds. Suppressing minds suppresses creativity. No creativity means no prosperity. When your population expect six per cent economic growth every year, that is a dangerous game.
    That growth also requires resources. When uprising is only a food shortage away, when you need cement, iron, and coal every day, you recognize you are interdependent with the world.

    Let me pause to say my comments are by no means a criticism of China or the Chinese people. This is not a discussion about race or nationality. It is about human rights and philosophy. In fact, our Kiwi Chinese neighbours are the most strident in warning us of the Chinese Communist Party, for whom my remarks are intended.

    The CCP might think New Zealand would be an outlier in the coalition of free societies. That would be a mistake. We intend to use our voice to promote human freedom.

    By the same token, New Zealand is not picking sides. We are assembling a side. It has to be a side committed to solidarity in favour of universal human rights. We stand for them on principle because the lessons of human history are crystal clear. We also stand for them together, we are calling on likeminded nations to form a coalition of the free.

    We note that the Americans were happy to let the Australians take the lead championing a World Health Organisation inquiry into COVID. Here’s the question: did the Americans withhold exports to China when China targeted Australian barley, or did they profit off of filling the gap left by the Australians’ principled stand?

    Defecting from the coalition is as bad defecting from one’s responsibility to basic human rights.

    The coalition of the free must assemble around a standard of human rights with agreed sanctions for Governments that violate them. No country’s size absolves it of the obligations of humanity.

    We say to the CCP that the genocide in the Xinjiang is wrong. The world knows it is wrong, and it is only a matter of time before your own citizens find out and know it is wrong too.

    The same could be said for the interference of PLA linked expatriates in our and other countries’ democratic elections.

    The destruction of Hong Kong democracy is wrong. The intimidation of the people of Taiwan, who wish to live freely and democratically is wrong.

    Your embassy’s interference in our universities is wrong.

    Intimidating your neighbours one at a time is wrong and the correct response is a collective one. That is the kind of response that New Zealand proposes the world adopt.

    The coalition must be prepared to retaliate with trade sanctions in proportion to any intimidation of any member. None of this is new. It’s been done before. It was called NATO, and what defeated the evil of communism can defeat authoritarian capitalism, too.

    Some might say its brave for such a small nation to make this call. The truth is, it would be too dangerous not too. We cannot sit by and watch tyranny slowly but surely grow, today Hong Kong, tomorrow Taiwan, the next day the South China Sea. How long can we believe it will not arrive in the South Pacific?

    I invite every friend from around the Pacific rim who believes in human freedom to join the coalition for freedom, staying home is too dangerous.

  16. Latest from Taxpayers Union
    “Māori Development Minister Willie Jackson has introduced a five percent quota for government contracts awarded to businesses that present themselves as Māori or Pasifika-owned.

    You may recall we were first to sound the alarm back in 2019 when found this idea buried deep in a Ministerial briefing.

    But some say the new quota doesn’t go far enough. First it was the Productivity Commission (under the leadership of Labour’s pet economist Ganesh Nana), and now the company that verifies the “Māori-owned” businesses wants the Government to combine the quota with a spending target for these companies (well they would say that, wouldn’t they!).

    This is what political analysts call “mission creep”. Instead of focusing solely on delivering value for taxpayers, procurement policy is now being hijacked to hit politically-determined targets.

    That means less competitive tenders, leading to either higher costs for taxpayers, lower quality services, or both. It’s also incredibly unfair for those businesses – many of which employ Māori – that will miss out on contracts purely because their owners don’t tick the right diversity boxes.

    Court rort #1: cultural reports
    Taxpayers forked out $3.3 million for the cost of “cultural reports” for offenders in 2020. That’s five times as much as the year prior.

    These reports argue how each offender should receive a reduced sentence due to “personal, family, whānau, community and cultural background”.

    And it appears a cottage industry has emerged: anyone familiar with the courts system can charge up to $6,600 to write one, copy-pasting the standard lines they know will work to convince judges to cut sentences.

    Court rort #2: interpreters
    Taxpayers paid private contractors more than $13 million in just five years for interpretation services for people facing the courts.

    In many cases the Ministry of Justice is paying these interpreters more than $125 per hour.

    As the Herald reports:

    Examples include $1700 paid to a te reo interpreter for a one-day hearing in Kaikohe; $2628 to a Māori translator at a two-day hearing in Wellington; and a $3197 bill for two sign-language interpreters for just 3.5 hours’ work in January. The ministry said the cost included return flights.”

  17. A woman from New York was driving through a remote part of Arizona when her car broke down. An American Indian on horseback came along and offered her a ride to a nearby town.
    She climbed up behind him on the horse and they rode off. The ride was uneventful, except that every few minutes the Indian would let out a Ye-e-e-e-h-a-a-a-a!’ so loud that it echoed from the surrounding hills and canyon walls.
    When they arrived in town, he let her off at the local service station, yelled one final ‘Ye-e-e-e-h-a-a-a-a!’ and rode off.
    “What did you do to get that Indian so excited?” asked the service-station attendant. “Nothing,” the woman answered “I merely sat behind him on the horse, put my arms around his waist, and held onto the saddle horn so I wouldn’t fall off.”
    “Lady,” the attendant said, “Indians don’t use saddles.”

  19. an alternative foriegn Policy View.
    The border crossing between Israel and Lebanon is on a coastal road on the edge of cliffs that plunge into the Mediterranean. I was there to meet a member of the UN Fiji peacekeepers. There was a delay. Looking around, I noticed halfway down the cliff face a railway line. It produced a “how did they build that?” thought.

    “The British built the railway during the First World War to support their advance against the Turks,” said my liaison officer.

    Seeing a path, I climbed down to have a better look. It is a marvel of engineering. There was a plaque on the tunnel entrance. Brushing aside the dust, I read the inscription. I was stunned.

  20. Oh look, Grant. Take the investers away, and guess what? First home buyers were right there all along, and nothing changes. You knob.

    Bayleys agent Dianne Burt, who sold a three-bedroom unit at 4/48 Rawhiti Road, One Tree Hill Auckland under the hammer last week for $1.155 million says that close to 70 people looked at the home, mostly first home buyers.

    Twelve bidders registered for the auction, although only eight bid on the day, and six of them actively competed for the unit which had a 2017 council valuation of just $790,000.

    Remember when the NZ media reported everything about Trump with breathless eagerness, and still do as long as its something negative? Funny thing, but the forensic audit of the Arizona vote count is right off their radar.

    This is actually a momentous event that could see Joe Biden removed from the Whitehouse and Trump taking his place. If the Arizona audit proves there was widespread vote fraud, and then the same process is followed in other contentious states, and the same result eventuates, then it is clear that Biden did not accumulate a winning number of electoral votes and is therefore an illegitimate president.

  22. You couldn’t make this shit up. These fuck-knuckles are running the show:

    In a Hawke’s Bay Today Talking Point on Saturday Waka Kotahi’s Emma Speight wrote:

    “Our technical assessment of the road found that although the posted speed limit on SH5 between Rangitaiki and Esk Valley is 100km/h, the mean speed that people travel at is 81km/h.

    “This means lowering the speed to 80km/h will increase the average travel time by less than a minute.”

    • I put a submission in on this proposed speed limit change.
      Let them know this was New Zealand not some other name.
      A boss of a large transport company I know has also noted that if they drop the speed limit on the Toe paw road it will affect the travel times for drivers to the extent they will need to take breaks on Auckland trips.(I’m not familiar with the rules)

      • The regulations state:

        ……”In any one 24 hour period (a cumulative work day) a driver can work up to 13 hours before taking a break of at least 10 hours, not including the two standard 30-minute breaks that would have been taken during the 13 hours worked. This gives a total of 24 hours.”……

        Line haul drivers presently can take a truck from Auckland to a meeting point somewhere between Turangi & Taupo, swap trucks with another driver from Wellington & head back to Auk still staying within the thirteen hour max..

        The timing is fairly tight now. If they are slowed down the current arrangement won’t work.

    • A fuck-knuckle alright

      Of course the avg speed is lower with hill climbs, windy roads etc.
      But there are stretched where you can do 100 km/hr
      Prior to this nonsense, the best road in the North island

      Waka shit-for-brains really are major trouble makers.
      I will pay this stupid cunt Emma Speight $1000 for every job they they have delivered on time; and on budget; to world class standards – in the last 5 years.
      Happy to pay over.
      But they do NOT deliver
      then they lie.
      The gold standard for ALL Govt depts since 2017.

      There is no Stephen Joyce or Tony Ryall to make these bastards tell the truth.
      The NZ pubic service is out of control.
      Like 4th formers when the teacher leaves the room.
      …Given it is student politicians that voters gave the keys to.

  23. EU Admits It Can’t Go Net-Zero Without Natural Gas

    While gas was not included in the list of green economic activities, the EU said it would be included in a separate document treating—and this is the important part—transitional activities. Put simply, the EU legislation will restore natural gas to its bridge-fuel status.
    This is, in essence, an admission that it won’t be that easy for the EU to wean itself off fossil fuels completely. It is also a confirmation of what the vice president of the EU and person in charge of the Green Deal, Frans Timmermans, said earlier this year about gas and other fossil fuels.

    • Try living in Northern Germany in winter without natural gas.

      The yanks are trying to muscle in on this where there is already a pipeline from Russia.
      Hence, lots of anti Russia bullshit rhetoric …sucked up by weak minds.
      Yankees want to export their surplus gas by pressurised tanks on ships across the Atlantic.
      Talk about inefficient.

      The irony is the whole Syria ‘war’ which the yanks jumped into with malice aforethought was started by Qatar when Syria would not let them build a pipeline through Syria to service Europe.

      Syria had a long establish relationship with Russia
      They know who to get along with.
      That was built out of friendship, not the fear the yanks use
      They said NO to the c*nts of Qatar.

  24. RACISM IS NOT THE PROBLEM, ITS LEFT WING MESSAGING THAT DRIVES FAILURE

    Labour and the Greens and the Maori party all send out this same message, and they exploit so many New Zealanders by this means. Only for the purpose of duping these poor into voting for them, and thereby giving them the political power they so insanely crave.

  26. Government buys hundreds of houses in direct competition with first-home buyers

    “The Government likes to demonise property investors for outbidding first-home buyers. It turns out the Government is one of the biggest property investors of them all,” says National’s housing spokesperson Nicola Willis.

    ‘Millions dead’: Unsettling prediction about conflict with China

    Director of the Australia-China Relations Institute at the University of Technology, James Laurenceson, said while newly-appointed defence minister Peter Dutton may be preparing Australians for any involvement the nation will have in potential military conflict in the Indo-Pacific, there is little mention of the horrific consequences that could result.

    Newshub has learned police have referred the Māori Party to the Serious Fraud Office after it failed to declare hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations on time.

    Former Māori Party co-leader John Tamihere donated over $158,000 between March and October last year.

    The Urban Māori Authority donated over $48,879 between May and September 2020 and $120,000 was donated by Aotearoa Te Kahu Limited Partnership in July.

  29. Can’t Cindy’s clown car get anything done. Unless he has a conviction and his qualifications have been confirmed surely much needed GP’s residency should be easily rubber stamped.

    A British GP who has been on a work visa, based in Ōtaki near Wellington has expressed stress and frustration at the amount of time the Government is taking to grant him residency.
