  1. Now cindy wants to change the Law to side step political corruption.
    EXPLAINER: Why are party donations sparking legal action? Is the problem with the law — as PM Jacinda Ardern suggests — or with people trying to get around it?

    Four of New Zealand’s political parties are now embroiled in active criminal court cases or facing investigation from the department responsible for detecting financial crimes and corruption.

    An inquiry into a Labour Party donation is the most recent to be given a court date before a judge – Monday.

    But after a dozen charges were filed last week, Prime Minister and Labour leader Jacinda Ardern indicated there was something wrong with the system – not the alleged behaviour of those connected to the donations.


    While I always consider the system cause the problems when you have a system then the rules are there for you to use.
    IMHO there should be no rules around this.
    History proves the money is not the determinant of an election.
    The behaviour of people determines that.
    The rules relating to the way ballots are cast or can be cast are the main issue.
    Stop vote harvesting for a start.
    Include ID for voting.

    As a rental house owner I could collect bunches of envelopes and go vote for others any election.
    why because many people don’t give a crap about voting. They don’t acknowledge voting as being next to godliness like they all should.
    i.e. they don’t care.
    Kinda like the aussie system where you have to vote. But then I think well that’s a compu;lsion which goes against my instincts.

    We need a better system and we need rightful education abut p[politics and Parliament not the hare brained crap that is promoted by so many second rate politicans.



    • Agree the system needs to change and being a champion of equality and wealth redistribution i suggest ardern evenly distribute campaign funds so every party has the exact same amount of funding 🙂

      In reality we all know that cindys gunna tilt a new system in her favour.



      • Cindy wants to funnel taxpayer money to political parties with the lions share going to the largest party – hers. Taxpayers must not pay tax for politicians to gain power over those very voters.



        • WG what it means is the troughers can do less work, no fundraising to do just handouts to themselves and even less accountability to voters/donors.

          What they need to do is cap election spending/ fundraising. Limit their funding of campaigns so parties have to actually work for the votes and not just blanket youtube and facebook with millions of adverts.



  2. PolitiFact Quietly Retracts Fact Check Labeling COVID-19 Lab Origin Theory as ‘Debunked Conspiracy’
    By Isabel van Brugen
    May 21, 2021 Updated: May 21, 2021

    PolitiFact has quietly retracted a Sept. 2020 fact check that labeled a Hong Kong virologist’s claim that COVID-19 originated in a lab as inaccurate and a “debunked conspiracy theory.”

    “The claim is inaccurate and ridiculous,” now-archived fact check previously said. “We rate it Pants on Fire!”

    In an updated editor’s note published Monday, PolitiFact explained why it has now removed the label.

    “When this fact-check was first published in September 2020, PolitiFact’s sources included researchers who asserted the SARS-CoV-2 virus could not have been manipulated. That assertion is now more widely disputed,” the note states. “For that reason, we are removing this fact-check from our database pending a more thorough review. Currently, we consider the claim to be unsupported by evidence and in dispute.”

    The original fact check from PolitiFact cited a Sept. 15 2020 Fox News interview with Hong Kong virologist Li-Meng Yan, in which she said that she has “solid scientific evidence” that COVID-19, the disease caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, is “not from nature.”

    “It is a man-made virus created in the lab,” the virologist and former postdoctoral fellow at the University of Hong Kong told the news network at the time.



  3. ‘Ring of Fire’ Solar Eclipse to Appear in the Sky Next Month—Here’s What You Need to Know:
    A “ring of fire” eclipse will occur next month over Canada and its environs; and will be visible from the remote areas of north Ontario, Russia, Greenland, and Polar Bear Provincial Park (located on the southwestern shore of Hudson Bay).

    The annular solar eclipse—where the outer edge of the Sun is visible behind the Moon—will take place on Thursday, June 10. Obscured by a lunar silhouette, 94 percent of the Sun will be blocked out by the satellite, leaving the Sun’s corona visibly exposed for viewers here on Earth to marvel at.




  4. I am reminded of Paddy Gower questioning Ardern during the pre election debate in 2017. Ardern is on record claiming that she never lied in politics. She repeated her answer.

    Now is the time for our impartial media to remind her of this….

    Choke …….



  5. 73% of new zealanders dont understand what a crashed housing market would really mean and how ot would affect their lives…

    Just another manufactured reid/newshub poll though so it dosent reflect reality but just the opinions of the shills they use to get their desired results.
    Perhaps newshub use dominion voting software to input the polling data?



  6. NEVER ENOUGH! Campaign continues for higher benefits despite large increase. It isn’t supposed to “be easy trying to survive on the benefit”.

    Budget 2021: Are the benefit increases really enough to keep up?

    The $3.3 billion boost to benefits and student support was the centrepiece of this year’s Budget, but there is already a question mark over whether it will be enough to keep pace with the rising cost of living.

    Beneficiaries will get up to $55 more in their pockets each week, once the increases are fully implemented next April.

    For Tony and his whānau in the Napier suburb of Maraenui, the more money the better, because it was not easy trying to survive on the benefit.



    • I see some fuckwit wanted to see benefits rise 200 per week… that would make them get minimum wage without lifting a finger!!!

      The sad thing is by next year that still wouldnt be enough and theyd want it on par with the living wage. What fucks me off is they hand these cnuts $$$ to give them “dignity”… get a fuckin job, have pride in yourself cos you cant just buy dignity no matter how much money you pour in.



  7. World Doctors Alliance.
    Dr Mike Yeadon.

    You’re absolutely right. Why ARE they applying awful pressure to get EVERYONE vaccinated?
    Sure, the elderly & clinically vulnerable.
    But then why ANYONE else?
    Why pregnant women? We’ve not got the reproductive toxicology results yet.
    Why young & healthy people? They’re more likely to die in a fall off a step ladder or down their own stairs at home than “with Covid19”.
    Why children, for goodness sake. They’re at unmeasurably low risk.

    Yet vaccination unfortunately has killed thousands. If U.K. alone, well over 1000 reported to Yellow Card alone. Sure, there are coincidental deaths after anything. Doesn’t mean causation.
    But comparing number of deaths post Covid19 vaccination & any other vaccination in U.K., we find this stunning fact: the number of people who’ve died within 28d of Covid19 vaccination in four months is GREATER than the total of all other vaccinations COMBINED for a period of OVER ten years.
    It’s not down to the number of vaccinations, either.
    It is a complete SCANDAL that no one but outsiders are talking about this.

    It’s happening all around the world where mass vaccination is going on.

    Back to the “why are they intent on getting everyone vaccinated?” question.

    The most likely explanation is that there’s an intent to herd everyone onto a Vaccine Passports system.

    Why that? Because it grants the owner of the database & algorithms (what it decides what a person can do or not do, when they present a VaxPass) TOTALITARIAN POWER over everyone. Any threshold like a border or a shop can be so controlled. So could every transaction.

    Why is that an important objective for these criminal perpetrators?

    While I cannot be certain, the combination of callous disregard for people’s safety & lives, the economy & civil society, coupled with ignoring criminal activity, breaches of the Nuremberg code, the lying about variants & top up vaccines, on top of the tens of thousands of lockdown policy deaths (including from poor access to the NHS for over a year) leads me to suspect the following.

    VaxPass will order you to attend for your 3rd or 4th vaccination. As an immunologist, I am telling you that do not need these vaccinations, especially if you’ve had two jabs already.

    I can think of no benign reasons for any of this, and see several places where your life is being put at risk, for no benefit to you.

    All the things which are happening in U.K. are also happening in scores of other countries, including the same half a dozen ridiculous lies. The same fearful propaganda techniques. The same censorship & smearing, instead of debating.

    To me that’s unequivocal evidence of cooperation & planning, internationally.
    That’s conspiracy. Anyone baulking at that word, please ask yourself why.

    It’s not coincidence but a conspiracy. Nothing theoretical about it.

    My honest opinion, and it gains strength by the gathering lunacy on a weekly basis, is that there is a clear intent to murder a great number of people.

    You don’t go to this much trouble only to give up at the end.

    40 years learning & applying human biological sciences in a commercial R&D setting honed my ability to “spot faint patterns in sparse data”.

    That’s what I did for a living, for decades.

    No one is paying me to say this, on the contrary, it’s costing me to speak out.

    I’m sharper & better read than I’ve been in a decade.

    So when I conclude that the most likely interpretation is that top up vaccines will be used to murder a significant proportion of the planet, with “plausible deniability”, it’s worth you giving deep attention to it. What if I’m right?

    You’ve not got long. No one is going to save us, if I’m right. Only you / we can save ourselves.

    Two common objections:
    1. “No body is that evil”. Ha ha. Are you kidding? Missed history?
    2. “This is far too difficult to have planned it”. It’s not that complicated. Use a handful of lies & policies. Take complete control of the media & censor all others. Wait for social psychology to do the rest.




  8. Awww cute!

    Miniature horses prepare for 100km multi-day race through Northland

    Born To Run Adventure Racing’s Chloe Phillips-Harris is busy preparing for Queen’s Birthday weekend, which will see horses set off in the Far North.

    The Great Northern Gallop, starting June 3, is a five-day 100km adventure race along the west coast forest and 90 Mile Beach.

    There’s a catch, though. The horses have to run 25km a day, and a person needs to run alongside them.



  9. It’s not a tax stupid, it’s a levy. Will semantics confuse kiwis into believing Robbo that a levy is not a tax?


    The unemployment insurance scheme also wouldn’t be a tax, but a levy, Robertson said.

    “I don’t see it as [a tax]. I see it as actually a levy and an insurance-based scheme.”




    In an attempt to influence the members of the International Olympic Committee on their choice of venue for the games in 2032 the organisers of South Auckland’s bid have already drawn up an itinerary & a schedule of events as shown below has been leaked

    The Olympic flame will be ignited with a flaming NZ flag by native of the city, wearing the traditional patch & red scarf.
    In previous Olympic games, South Auckland’s competitors have not been particularly successful. In order to redress the balance, some of the events have been altered slightly to the advantage of local athletes.
    Competitors will have to hold a laptop & a flat screen TV (one in each arm) & on the sound of the starting pistol, a police dog will be released from a cage 10 metres behind the athletes.
    As above but with added obstacles (i.e. car bonnets, hedges, garden fences, walls etc.)
    Competitors in this event may choose the type of hammer they wish to use claw, sledge etc.) the winner will be the one who can cause the most grievous bodily harm to members of the public within the time allowed.
    Entrants will be asked to dispose of as much stolen silver & jewellery as possible in 5 minutes.
    A strong challenge is expected from local men in this event. The first target will be a moving police car. In the second round, competitors will aim at a bottle store employee, bank teller or security firm van servicing ATMs.
    Entry to the boxing will be restricted to husband & wife teams & will take place on a Friday night. The husband will be given 15 pints of Lion Red while the wife will be told not to make him any tea when he gets home.The bout will then commence.
    Competitors will be asked to break into the local bike shop & take an expensive racing bike.  All against the clock.
    As above, but the bike will be owned by Trevor Mallard who will witness the theft.
    Amended to include assault, breaking & entering, rape, car conversion & arson.
    A safe route has yet to be decided, but the competitors will be issued with sharp sticks & bags with which to pick up litter on their way round the course.
    Competitors will be thrown into the Waitemata Harbour. The first three survivors back will decide the medals.
    Unfortunately this will have to be cancelled, as the police cannot guarantee the safety of anyone walking the streets of South Auckland.
    Entertainment will include formation hiphop dancing by members of the Mangere Health in the Community anti-drug campaigners, synchronized rock throwing & music by the Papakura community choir. The Olympic flame will be extinguished by someone dropping an old washing machine onto it from the top floor of the block of Housing Corp flats next to the stadium. The stadium itself will then be boarded up before the local athletes break into it & remove all the copper piping & water heating cylinders.



  11. We need something like this to happen here.

    Myanmar election chief considers dissolving Suu Kyi’s party
    The head of Myanmar’s military-appointed state election commission says his agency will consider dissolving Aung San Suu Kyi’s former ruling party for alleged involvement in electoral fraud and having its leaders charged with treason.




  12. https://www.donaldjtrump.com/desk-w2snhrwejb

    from the desk of Donald J Trump

    I have just learned, through leaks in the mainstream media, that after being under investigation from the time I came down the escalator 5 ½ years ago, including the fake Russia Russia Russia Hoax, the 2 year, $48M, No Collusion Mueller Witch Hunt, Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax #2, and others, that the Democrat New York Attorney General has “informed” my organisation that their “investigation” is no longer just a civil matter but also potentially a “criminal” investigation working with the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office. There is nothing more corrupt than an investigation that is in desperate search of a crime. But, make no mistake, that is exactly what is happening here. The Attorney General of New York literally campaigned on prosecuting Donald Trump even before she knew anything about me. She said that if elected, she would use her office to look into “every aspect” of my real estate dealings. She swore that she would “definitely sue” me. She boasted on video that she would be, and I quote, “a real pain in the ass.” She declared, “just wait until I’m in the Attorney General’s office,” and, ”I’ve got my eyes on Trump Tower.” She also promised that, if elected, she would “join with law enforcement and other Attorney Generals across this nation in removing this President from office,” and, “It’s important that everyone understand that the days of Donald Trump are coming to an end.” The Attorney General made each of these statements, not after having had an opportunity to actually look at the facts, but BEFORE she was even elected, BEFORE she had seen even a shred of evidence. This is something that happens in failed third world countries, not the United States. If you can run for a prosecutor’s office pledging to take out your enemies, and be elected to that job by partisan voters who wish to enact political retribution, then we are no longer a free constitutional democracy. Likewise, the District Attorney’s office has been going after me for years based on a lying, discredited low life, who was not listened to or given credibility by other prosecutorial offices, and sentenced to 3 years in prison for lying and other events unrelated to me. These investigations have also been going on for years with members and associates of the Trump Organization being viciously attacked, harassed, and threatened, in order to say anything bad about the 45th President of the United States. This would include having to make up false stories. Numerous documents, all prepared by large and prestigious law and accounting firms, have been examined, and many hours of testimony have been taken from many people, some of whom I have not seen in years. These Democrat offices are consumed with this political and partisan Witch Hunt at a time when crime is up big in New York City, shootings are up 97%, murders are up 45%, a rate not seen in 40 years, drugs and criminals are pouring into our Country in record numbers from our now unprotected Southern Border, and people are fleeing New York for other much safer locations to live. But the District Attorney and Attorney General are possessed, at an unprecedented level, with destroying the political fortunes of President Donald J. Trump and the almost 75 million people who voted for him, by far the highest number ever received by a sitting President. That is what these investigations are all about—a continuation of the greatest political Witch Hunt in the history of the United States. Working in conjunction with Washington, these Democrats want to silence and cancel millions of voters because they don’t want “Trump” to run again. As people are being killed on the sidewalks of New York at an unprecedented rate, as drugs and crime of all kinds are flowing through New York City at record levels, with absolutely nothing being done about it, all they care about is taking down Trump. Our movement, which started with the Great Election Win of 2016, is perhaps the biggest and most powerful in the history of our Country. But the Democrats want to cancel the Make America Great Again movement, not by Making America First, but by Making America Last. No President has been treated the way I have. With all of the crime and corruption you read about with others, nothing happens, they only go after Donald Trump. After prosecutorial efforts the likes of which nobody has ever seen before, they failed to stop me in Washington, so they turned it over to New York to do their dirty work. This is what I have been going through for years. It’s a very sad and dangerous tale for our Country, but it is what it is, and we will overcome together. I have built a great company, employed thousands of people, and all I do is get unfairly attacked and abused by a corrupt political system. It would be so wonderful if the effort used against President Donald J. Trump, who lowered taxes and regulations, rebuilt our military, took care of our Veterans, created Space Force, fixed our border, produced our vaccine in record-setting time (years ahead of what was anticipated), and made our Country great and respected again, and so much more, would be focused on the ever more dangerous sidewalks and streets of New York. If these prosecutors focused on real issues, crime would be obliterated, and New York would be great and free again!



  13. If you have the time this podcast is interesting.

    Life at the Bottom | Theodore Dalrymple – Jordan B Peterson Podcast – S4 E23

    Dr. Anthony Daniels and Jordan discussed a variety of topics relating to distinct differences in culture and mindset in the poor “Underclass” in Britain. They examine many stories from Dr. Daniel’s time as a consulting physician in a prison and hospital in one of the poorest areas of London and draw conclusions on similarities in violence, domestic abuse, learned helplessness, education, monogamy, the disintegration of the family, and more.



  14. More evidence on the effectiveness of Ivermectin both as treatment and prophylaxis for covid 19.
    New Zealand should be making this long established and safe drug available to all and any that want it rather than the experimental biological agent that it racking up such a long list of serious adverse side effects.

    “Meta-analyses based on 18 randomized controlled treatment trials of ivermectin in COVID-19 have found large, statistically significant reductions in mortality, time to clinical recovery, and time to viral clearance. Furthermore, results from numerous controlled prophylaxis trials report significantly reduced risks of contracting COVID-19 with regular use of ivermectin. Finally, the many examples of ivermectin distribution campaigns leading to rapid population-wide decreases in morbidity and mortality indicate that an oral agent effective in all phases of COVID-19 has been identified.”

    “The psychological barriers to accepting FLCCC’s analyses are strong because it strains credulity to believe that the public health authorities, Big Pharma, and our political overlords are so divorced from reality and morality as to reject a well known and quite safe life-saving drug. But a great deal of current public policy, ranging from climate change to gender identity to election integrity to foreign policy, bears little connection to reality, and the powers that be are under heavy financial and reputational pressure to deny ivermectin.”




  15. https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2021/05/waikato-dhb-cyber-attack-chief-executive-refuses-to-pay-ransom.html

    Waikato DHB’s chief executive says the board will not pay ransom in order to quell the cyberattack crippling the region’s health services.

    The ransomware attack on Tuesday crashed Waikato DHB’s IT systems including computers and phones, affecting Waikato, Thames, Tokoroa, Te Kuiti and Taumarunui hospitals.

    Dr Snee says the system can be fixed by using backups to rebuild it.



  16. https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2021/05/david-seymour-wants-four-year-parliamentary-terms-but-with-a-catch.html
    ACT leader David Seymour wants parliamentary terms extended to four years, to give the Government of the day “time to implement its agenda”.

    Seymour has introduced a Member’s Bill to change the existing three-year to four from 2026.

    “Even a prepared Government needs time to implement its agenda which involves robust policy work, consulting the people affected, drafting laws, passing them through parliament, and implementing them. Doing that in a three year cycle is difficult and results in poorer law-making.”



    • well read all of what he said.
      Part of the deal is that the opposition control all select committees.
      Just as Simon did the covid one. It was well run and was much more informative than we have now. Even if the thequeers did ignore it. He raised issues which kept them under control.

      More inmprotatntly IMHO we need voter ID, no harvesting and compulsory voting like aussie has. That would require we taught about our country and its politics in school. Without bias.
      Funding the other issue. Let them raise however much they want so long as its is NZ based many. Money doesn’t buy elections as we know.
      Plenty to fix.



  17. Tamil Nadu leads India in new infections, denies citizens Ivermectin

    “With 33,059 cases reported in the last 24 hours, Tamil Nadu (TN) is leading the state list,” reported an article published in the Business Standard. “May 19 was to be worse with 34,875 new infections, again with the dubious distinction of being number one in India.”

    Meanwhile, cases in Delhi continue to fall as they douse their COVID flame with Ivermectin. As of May 19, 2021, Delhi’s infections had plunged 87% from 28,395 on April 20 – when they began using Ivermectin – to just 3,846.




  18. The guy who played Hyde, in that Seventies Show is a loon scientologist and is facing charges of rape.

    ” Scientology followers believe that a human is an immortal, spiritual being (Thetan) that is resident in a physical body. The Thetan has had innumerable past lives and it is observed in advanced (and – within the movement – secret) Scientology texts that lives preceding the Thetan’s arrival on Earth were lived in extraterrestrial cultures.”




    • Ho hum. What difference between this religion & any other half baked belief in the supernatural?

      At least the Scientology crap artist raped grown up women & not the little girls & boys that Muslims & Catholics specialise in.



  19. Anyone surprised the hospitals are failing under the clown car?
    I have a friend with an 85 year old mother with terminal cancer who needed to be readmitted to Waikato Hospital. They arrived at the ED at 11pm and she was admitted at 8am the next morning.

    Hospital emergency departments ‘teetering on crisis point’

    Urgent meetings are being held at District Health Boards amid a surge in the number of patients showing up at emergency departments.

    “At this stage we’re not entirely sure what’s driving that all.The early indicators of data are its multi-factorial as in there are increased presentations to emergency department with increasing complexity but there is also pressure in primary care there’s also pressure with challenges of complexity of care,” said Peter Bramley.



  20. Not sure if this has been posted previously but it is a must watch video imo.
    Canadian doctor using Vaers data to statistically prove that the vaccine serious adverse reactions cannot be explained away as coincidences. Also interesting data on the “breakthrough” cases. Pfizer is disproportionally responsible and the infection fatality rate of these cases is 6%. Covid ifr overall is around 2%. Possibly indicative of pathogenic priming.




  21. In a report on the draft version of Aotearoa New Zealand’s Histories curriculum, the panel convened by the Royal Society of New Zealand to advise the Education Ministry said it strongly supported the introduction of New Zealand’s histories into the core curriculum and strongly commended placing Māori history central to New Zealand history.

    The report said it was impossible for students to understand citizenship without knowledge of history.

    However, it said the panel “has concerns about the brevity, fragmentation, and, therefore, coherence of the curriculum draft”.




    • So will they miss the enslaved their enemies and eating them?
      Or were they eating tulips and dancing around the maypole after writing poetry and using the wheel to grind wheat and flying aeroplanes?
