  1. I think some-one posted this last year? but worth seeing again in the context of how Rand Paul’s questions of Fauci. And the connections made in this thread as exposed by Tucker Carlson about Fauci.
    https://ysb.co.nz/have-your-say-757/#comment-143318

    This vid revolves around the trail of patents, of the Corona virus, that started back in 1999.
    The little hic-cups of how a multi million dollar industry arose and the money flows around the virus.
    The smoking gun of Fauci’s and other rogues in developing Coronavirus for “gain of function”.

    1999 patents of corona virus came up.
    2003, the small out break in Asia. and more patents, disease, virus, and to its detection and all of the measurement of it,
    Connects Fauci and number of others controlled the cash flow that started.

    So patent filed, but the legality shows the deviousness is illegal. Double jeopardy.

    2007 a petition to keep application confidential & private.

    Patent then means that control of who was authorized or not to make inquiries to research, use, develop a test or measure.

    Means, motive monetary gain, to make profit from the virus.

    2012-2013
    Federal funding for research, became impaired, as NIH questions legality of “gain of function” should be stopped, or is it just suspended, but, …..
    Notices sent to stop, but clarified at the bottom not really.
    More heat, questions then forced the move off shore in 2014 or was that part of the plan?
    Sums up well how the blame is put.

    Just remember the names who were in the thick of this, 🙁

      • Got it! Iaasb
        Totally banned to play around with “gain of function”, so illegal to make it.

        Except these guys, with lack of principles got taken with “gold fever” of riches, greed, power & control, seeing the rest of the world as expendable, so prepared to cut all our throats.

        Totally illegal, either way!

  2. Helen’s solution, build a larger bureaucracy. The inbuilt incompetency will ensure it will happen again.

    The experts found crucial shortcomings in the global response in early 2020 – including a delay in declaring an emergency, a failure to impose travel restrictions and an entire “lost month” when countries neglected to respond to warnings – that let the virus quickly spread into a crippling pandemic.

    “It is critical to have an empowered WHO,” panel co-chair and former New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark told reporters on the launch of the report “COVID-19: Make It the Last Pandemic”.

  3. House Republicans Oust Rep. Liz Cheney as GOP Conference Chairwoman

    House Republicans voted Wednesday to oust Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) from her House leadership position amid a public spat between her and other House GOP leaders following her increasingly critical comments about former President Donald Trump and the party’s messaging.

    After she was voted out, Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, told reporters that she will work to prevent Trump from becoming president again, but stressed she didn’t feel betrayed by her fellow House Republicans.

    “I will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office,” Cheney said after the vote on Wednesday, adding that the “nation needs a strong Republican Party … based on the principles of conservatism.”

    “I plan to lead the fight to do that,” she said.

    Drain that swamp.
    tip her into the Mississippi.

    • Liz Cheney

      I’ll bet she wishes she could just shoot people with impunity like her daddy done !

      The daughter of one of the great mass murderers of the 21st Century.
      We are only one fifth of the way into the 21st century but at this point her RINO Daddy started the longest war that the USA has ever been in.

      The only thing going for the Cheneys to diminish this great dishonour is the mass extermination policies of the murderers riding the covid 19 bandwagon today.

  4. Inflation Surges 4.2 Percent Annually to a 13-Year High in April

    U.S. consumer prices have soared above economists’ predictions and by the most in over a decade, as fiscal stimulus and booming demand pushed against supply constraints, potentially fueling market fears of a prolonged bout of higher inflation.

    The year-over-year consumer price index (CPI) jumped by 4.2 percent in April after rising 2.6 percent in March, the Labor Department said in a release on Wednesday (pdf). This is the largest 12-month increase since September 2008, when the index rose by 4.9 percent.

    Forecasts from economists polled by DailyFX, a financial market insights platform, expected the year-over-year inflation measure to come in at 3.6 percent, compared to the actual 13-year high.

  5. Doctor Takes Stunning Photos of Galaxies 2 Million Light-Years Away From His Own Backyard

    A doctor captures stunning photos of galaxies two million light-years away from his back garden in his spare time.

    Syed Taha, 29, has captured Comet Neowise, nebulae, constellations, and galaxies as far as two million light-years away.

    “I see galaxies that are millions of light-years away, really bright single stars, constellations,” said the pediatric doctor from Oadby, Leicestershire.

    “It’s hard to describe what you’re seeing. You’re seeing something as it appears in the past.

    Swedish Psychiatrist explains the mechanism that allows people to buy in to lockdowns
    The first video is to shorten it up to excerpts, but if you have time the 2nd one worth it.

    The security junky syndrome
    How pausing the world leads to catastrophe.

    7 mins 20 secs :

    Everything is out of control, so leads one to over-estimate the risks.
    Screening increasing numbers of deaths creates panic. [CNN + repeater media]
    Reacting to events, instead of doing relevant risk analysis.
    The basic laws of human stupidity.

    The national panic syndrome. [Also hiding relevant facts in censorship]

    To scared to die, so leads to not ready to handle real danger.

    The more safety you get, the more safety you seek, because you feel more & more insecure.

    The security syndrome makes you feel safe and so
    other more things seem frightening, and need more safety,
    and more & more things to be fearful of, so you will get afraid,
    and probably become lazy.
    and act like a coward.
    If you are afraid, then you will be very easy to control.

    Developed into a global self harming behaviour.

    Remember, it is all in your head.
    Stop acting risk averse and challenge our fears.
    Live your life to the best.

    It has become no other way to die! [ 🙂 ]

    Chasing down the untested, not completed vaccines seems to be just another way of seeking the “security blanket”, and worse, enforcing it onto all.

    Worth watching, and how does one get this into mainstream thinking?
    Can we become rational people again?

    For me noting that a country like the supposed hard hit Philippines has a 50% vaccine hesitancy, so some thinking is happening.

    The cycle of “virtue signalling” to find another thing to fix for the concept of better “security”.

    • With fearmongering of blackouts due to low hydro lakes EVs sure are a great idea and certainly going to be our saviour with no new significant new power generators on the horizon.

      Maybe the solar shill from yesterday can tell us how long it would take hus setup to charge an EV?

      Lol just consulted google, for an example of where green stupidity is leading us is with the average private/home solar installation will take approx 6hrs of good sunlight to charge a shitty nisssn leaf enough for the average daily drive. From dead flat (wont happen with computer/ lithium ion batts anyway so just in theory) the chap from yesterdays solar array wouĺd take 20-30 hours to charge. Those charging times are fully utilizing the solar to charge and zero household use of power.

      Human race is onto a real winner here…

      • Add in the fact that solar installations only produce useful amounts of power for a couple of hours around midday when the electric car is least likely to be in the driveway & the fantasy crumbles real quick.

  10. A doctor in a small Irish town wanted to get off work and go fishing, so he approached his assistant

    “Murphy, I am going fishing tomorrow and don’t want to close the clinic. I want you to take care of the clinic and take care of all me patients”.

    “Yes, sir!” answers Murphy.

    The doctor goes fishing and returns the following day and asks: “So, Murphy, how was your day?”

    Murphy told him that he took care of three patients. “The first one had a headache so he did, so I gave him Paracetamol.”

    “Bravo Murphy lad, and the second one?” asks the doctor.

    “The second one had indigestion and I gave him Gaviscon, so I did sir” says Murphy.

    “Bravo, bravo! You’re good at this and what about the third one?” asks the doctor.

    “Sir, I was sitting here and suddenly the door flies open and a young gorgeous woman bursts in so she does. Like a bolt outta the blue, she tears off her clothes, taking off everyting including her bra and her panties and lies down on the table, spreading her legs and shouts: ‘HELP ME for the love of St Patrick! For five years I have not seen any man!’”

    “Tunderin’ lord Jesus Murphy, what did you do?” asks the doctor.

    “I put drops in her eyes.”

  11. The Duck is fence sitting

    The latest blow up over race relations in Parliament has raised the question – are MPs allowed to call each racist in the House?

    The short answer is ‘no’, says Speaker Trevor Mallard.
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2021/05/policies-can-be-called-racist-but-not-mps-speaker-rules.html

    Davis said, I’m sure the National Party has many policies, as according to them, that benefit Aotearoa, but… the opposition leader has been constantly bashing Māori to gain the votes of her Pākehā constituents – and that’s all it is”.

    That was a “lazy” assessment, Collins said.

    “I think that will get the balance about right. It will leave the freedom of speech, but it will stop people saying that individuals are racist, which I think most members would find offensive.”

    • New Zealand is destroying itself. There’s a huge number of people in this country who think that wanting everybody to have the same democratic rights and be equal under the law is somehow ‘racist’.

      Don’t underestimate what these Maori activists are trying to achieve. They don’t want separatism, they want no less than complete domination.

      They want our schools, our corporate culture, our tertiary institutions, our public services and our governmental system to become ‘Maori’ and operate according to Maori rather than democratic values. They want a veto on democracy and ultimately they want control .

      Are we going to let these savages take control, or are we going to fight back and defend our democracy and our country?

        • Absolutely,,but a word of caution
          We need to know who and what these people trying to disrupt NZ are.
          Maori are blamed but let us have a close look at the faceless bureaucrats who are managing and benefiting from these settlements etc.
          There are an awful lot of hardworking and decent people of Maori descent who never have ,and never will receive a red cent from all this buffoonery.
          These genuine people have been done a huge disservice by this lawyer infested bureaucracy some of who, do not even have any Maori blood relationships.
          It is absolutely essential that an audit of taxpayer Maori funding identifies who has received these money’s and hopefully what they did with it!

          • Despite my previous post, I tend to agree with you Falcon. But the big risk is that a certain type of people are using their 1/16 or 1/32 Maori blood to blatantly rort the system. I personally know such people. They gain preferential treatment in tertiary institutions and also healthcare by pretending to be ‘tangata whenua’ when and as it suits them. Basically these scum are riding on the coattails of the hard-liners – getting as much as they can from kiwi taxpayers and at the same time feeding the fires of racism.

The iron ore price has gone from about US$85 /tonne last May to US$220/tone with a spike of increase in recent weeks.
    The bit that made me take note was what the increase in tax take from just the very recent increase was going to be — they are talking of well north of A$100 billion increase in state & federal taxes. Australia is not called the “Lucky Country” for nothing !!

    “Tennessee officials have closed a bridge spanning the Mississippi River, after inspectors found a crack in its structure. The closure has delayed vital river traffic, and serves as a reminder of the US’ decaying infrastructure.
    Built in the 1960s and reinforced in the last two decades, the Hernando de Soto Bridge carries Interstate 40 across the Mississippi River between West Memphis, Arkansas, and Memphis, Tennessee. As many as 50,000 vehicles, including more than 9,000 trucks, use the bridge every day, officials said. ”

    Well hell.

    Same vintage

    Except
    About 170,000 vehicles cross the bridge each day (as of 2019), including more than 1,000 buses, which carry 38% of all people crossing during the morning peak.
    and TINA
    (There is no alternative)

      A wise government would have put a replacement program for the Auckland Habour bridge into effect from the time the bridge opened in 1957. Some 60 years later, they should have accumulated the funds to put in a second (or replacement) bridge.

        • If I recall correctly one of the main reasons they axed the tolls was that they were costing as much to collect as they were producing in revenue. It was in the early 80s, an era of high inflation, militant unions & the Bridge Authority employed a small army of Lieutenant Commander look a likes to hold their hands out for about twenty cents a vehicle.

            • Sorry Mike Hunty & nasska, this just seems like another waste.
              I recall that the the cost of setting this up, only pays for collecting the tolls, only pay the 4 year degree, clipboard, tick box geeks & techs, setting up and playing with software, with unending upgrades etc.. and very little for the roads.
              Doubt very much any improvement since, now that we are in the era of wakas sort of eerily floating down our highways.
              .
              This was despite analysis showing it would not make much money if you took into account the costs of setting up the tolling system.
              So Transit convinced the then government that it was ok for NON-tolled road users to pay for the multi-million dollar tolling system through motoring taxes, to subsidise tolls.
              This was before there was any realistic chance of there being more than perhaps two other toll roads that could have been opened in the depreciated lifespan of the tolling system (which is about seven years).
              .
              In other words, the tolls were introduced in spite of the finances not really adding up, because the government wanted a toll road to show its legislation was not in vain.
              In truth, the Northern Gateway neither has the volumes of traffic nor the level of regular users to make tolling anything more than marginally useful to the finances of the project, even though its tolls are purportedly paying half of the cost of the project, the system to collect the tolls is 100% subsidised by other road users (and the road itself is only 50% toll funded).

              http://roadpricing.blogspot.com/2011/07/new-zealands-toll-road-that-probably.html

              Do you really think there has been any improvement, in this era of open honest transparency.
              It only makes one to feelz virtuous signalling paying the money.

              Now do not to forget plant that tree now when you drive through.
              🙂

              Now wakas going up & down the railway lines for the price of $hundreds of millions for commuters, being another tickbox arrangement, ran by some more very highly paid geek & techs in bureaucracy.

    During a pre-Budget speech in Auckland on Thursday, the Prime Minister announced she would lead a trade and promotional delegation to Australia in July.

    “I will be looking to further strengthen business ties with our trans-Tasman partners.”

    She also revealed Trade Minister Damien O’Connor would travel to London and Brussels next month to progress negotiations for New Zealand’s Free Trade Agreements (FTA) with the UK and EU. He will undertake 14 days of MIQ upon return and be vaccinated before departing.

    “National were raising very legitimate concerns actually in a moderate way, that the Government can’t answer them is actually a sort of in a sense isn’t our fault, actually it tells its own story,” Bridges said.

    Act MP Nicole McKee said the Māori Party’s behaviour didn’t represent her indigeneity.
    “When somebody stands up and says they are speaking for indigenous peoples and tangata whenua in that particular sense they were not speaking for me, and that I am an indigenous person that I think that it’s important that we have the ability to have a debate and we are in the house to do that, exactly that,” McKee said.

  22. Eric Clapton after COVID vaccination: ‘I should never have gone near the needle’

    In February this year, before I learned about the nature of the vaccines, (and being 76 with emphysema) I was in the avant garde. I took the first jab of AZ and straight away had severe reactions which lasted ten days, I recovered eventually and was told it would be twelve weeks before the second one…
    About six weeks later I was offered and took the second AZ shot, but with a little more knowledge of the dangers. Needless to say the reactions were disastrous, my hands and feet were either frozen, numb or burning, and pretty much useless for two weeks, I feared I would never play again, (I suffer with peripheral neuropathy and should never have gone near the needle.) But the propaganda said the vaccine was safe for everyone….

    • It is hard to have sympathy for Clapton.

      He willingly took excessive drugs and alcohol in his time, but at the Mission Vineyard concert in NZ he threw a hissy fit about a bottle of wine in his name.
      It was a vineyard Eric !!
      It was not Rhythm n Vines; no, but a sedate crowd.
      Mass hypocrisy.

      I like his music but as with all artists – movie or music- I just don’t want to know about their private lives.

      Also in that article
      ‘I continue to tread the path of passive rebellion and try to tow the line in order to be able to actively love my family, but it’s hard to bite my tongue with what I now know…”
      …..Ah no Eric. You were a conformist .

      and “But the propaganda said the vaccine was safe for everyone…. ” Well yeah, it was propaganda.
      You bought it.

      Every story I hear from Australia about the vaccine it knocks the shit out of people
      and they were never affected by ‘the flu’

  23. Number One Shoes employee arrested for offensive behaviour revealed as former student teacher
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2021/05/number-one-shoes-employee-arrested-for-offensive-behaviour-revealed-as-former-student-teacher.html

    While studying to be a secondary school teacher at Massey University in Palmerston North last year, Wylie worked as a student teacher in Manawatu high schools.

    A girl from Longburn Adventist College told Newshub she was targeted by an account Newshub believes was run by Wylie. The message asked for pictures of shoes while he was her teacher.

  24. I read in the Herald that some motorist died in an accident on the road on Te Mata Peak. Apparently there is a “rahui” banning people from using the road or going up to the summit (or something).
    Are these “rahui” legal?

    Are they simply a means for iwi to assert political power over people? (If we can get you non-Maori to go along with this, then we can take it to the next level…)

    What are your thoughts?

    I imagine if local Ainu tried something like this in Hokkaido, the locals would take a very dim view. (Although some of them would join hands and happily go along with it.)

    • ….”Are these “rahui” legal?”…..

      They’re to the best of my knowledge not legally enforceable* but they’ve usually been respected by Maori & Pakeha alike.

      * Yet at the accelerated rate of the take over of the country by the special 15% it could now be a hanging offence.

    • …..”Are they simply a means for iwi to assert political power over people?”…..

      On an organised national level anything is possible. Yet rahui are usually placed by kaumatua at a local hapu level after a death such as drowning or accident. As they involve a tapu on the area, be it sea, lake or land, the incredibly superstitious Maori even from other hapu would not break it.

      I suspect that the Mata Peak rahui was genuine.

    • I don’t see any reason that mori should force their culture on the rest of us over this.
      They think Tee maata is a sleeping giant.More myth to swallow.
      Stuff them I have had enough of pandering to this stone age minority and their beliefs.

  25. A pirate ship’s sailing on the high seas. The captain looks through his telescope and sees another pirate ship coming over the horizon. He calls his motley crew to battle stations, and summons the cabin boy. “Cabin boy, get me my red shirt from my cabin, so that if I’m injured in battle the crew won’t know, and will continue to fight on” . Cabin boy returns with the shirt. The captain puts it on, and once again looks through his telescope. But now there are not one, but three other ships on the horizon. “Cabin boy, get me my brown pants”.

        • You are correct.

          I still see it as entirely plausible that that piece of dogshit Mattwho Whooton pushed for Toddy Who as brokedown leader of Notional as a paid gun for hire.
          It is certainly logical;
          and not very logical to do what he did if it was meant to benefit the Notional party.

          Massive damage to the Notional party equivalent to the Exocet that was fired into the Sheffield in the Falklands war.

          Whooton takes his holidays with Laila Harre and was the only pretend Notional party critter (NINO) allowed in the TV debate in the 2017 election.

          this is realpolitiok.
          It would be worth checking Whooton’s bank account or that of associated parties.
          Notional under the useless Goodfellow (sic) allowed this to happen.

          Toddy Who was a quivering mumbling mess and unelectable.
          Contrary to what Luxon might think, he does not sit at the right hand of God and at Air NZ rode the magic carpet of his predecessors.
          He is unelectable and the media filth will play with him like a cat with a ball of wool.

  26. So the latest figures on child poverty shows Maori and Pacific islanders are greatly over represented. Does this mean I’ll be expecting to see skinny Maori and pi kids roaming around then will I. Yeah right

  27. Odakyu-sen

    Race relations is a fraught subject. Your correspondent was brought up on the East Coast & my opinions are influenced by my recollections of living amongst tribal Maori between sixty & seventy years ago.

    My first point is as always that Maori are tribal. There is no such thing as a Pan Maori grouping. An individual’s whakapapa reads like a ledger of who ate who & utu is always on the cards.

    The second point is that just because a hundred people in a setting have brown skin & Polynesian DNA it doesn’t necessarily follow that they wouldn’t chuck each other in the umu/hangi after a long painful death. For instance Tongans hate Samoans & it goes back 500 years.

    We used to cart hay over the Rimutakas for pony club syndicates. After we’d loaded & unloaded a couple of truck & trailer units we’d have a thirst you could photograph. The Quinns Post had a huge carpark where we could park the trucks & as such was the watering hole of choice.

    The demarcation zones were obvious. Pool table area was Tongan then a two leaner gap to the Samoans then another two leaner gap to the Pakeha, Maori, Tokes & Raros. Though the bar was crowded no-one would use the leaners between the groups. I was told that this was normal practise in all of the Valley pubs & those in Porirua.

    The wankers trying to to divide NZ don’t know shit. It’s always been divided but the Maori/Pakeha division has been created by a minority who have fractured relations for their own ends.

  28. Wool grease! Guess young reporters have never heard of “lanolin”.

    COVID-19 vaccines drive global demand for New Zealand wool grease
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/rural/2021/05/covid-19-vaccines-drive-global-demand-for-new-zealand-wool-grease.html

    New Zealand wool is high in cholesterol which can then be turned into vitamin D. The vitamin is in COVID-19 vaccines which is increasing demand for wool grease.

    “There’s a growing awareness of the value of wool grease and the products it can be turned into.

  29. Renowned toxicologist Dr. Janci Chunn Lindsay, Ph.D., has called on the U.S. government to halt COVID-19 vaccine distribution.

    Late last month, Lindsay told a meeting of the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) in Atlanta that the vaccines “must be halted immediately due to safety concerns on several fronts.” ACIP had convened to discuss blood disorders linked to the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.

    Dr. Lindsay, who holds a doctorate from the University of Texas and has more than three decades of scientific experience, cited potential blood clot, fertility, and immune issues related to the jabs.

    Incredible! Five Eyes report to Dept of Prime Minister and Cabinet warns NZ of real threat of Isis or al-Qai’da terrorism, but also concerned with “extremists using Covid19 to spread hate and conspiracies including theories that the virus was deliberately started, that the pandemic is less serious than stated and governments are using it to enforce authoritarian measures.”

  31. Covid 19 coronavirus: High Court hears arguments questioning legality of vaccine rollout
    12 May, 2021 05:15 PM

    A group questioning the legality of New Zealand’s vaccine rollout has argued its case in the High Court at Wellington today.
    Much of the case by applicant Nga Kaitiaki Tuku Ihu Inc focuses on whether the vaccine being rolled out to the majority of the country fits within the provisional consent legislation in the Medicines Act that it has been granted under.

  32. Forests the size of France regrown since 2000, study suggests

    William Baldwin-Cantello of WWF said natural forest regeneration is often “cheaper, richer in carbon and better for biodiversity than actively planted forests”.

    But he said regeneration cannot be taken for granted – “to avoid dangerous climate change we must both halt deforestation and restore natural forests”.
    “Deforestation still claims millions of hectares every year, vastly more than is regenerated,” Mr Baldwin-Cantello said.
    “To realise the potential of forests as a climate solution, we need support for regeneration in climate delivery plans and must tackle the drivers of deforestation, which in the UK means strong domestic laws to prevent our food causing deforestation overseas.”
