  1. Tarquin ,My neighbor reckons the Matariki Myth is easily disproved because it’s well known by anyone drawing breath that you “couldn’t buy a fucking Subaru 400 years ago” LMFAO.
    Imagine the shock of the poor bastards in the South that have been flooded for days when they realized they were about to be assaulted by a human tsunami of chattering white chompers in the form of the creature from the 9th floor, AAAAHHHHHH.

  2. Remember that “rice cooker” electric car stuff a couple of weeks back.

    A woman who died after her car caught on fire on a Wellington motorway last month has been described by a close friend as “gentle, sensitive and a musical genius”.

    Talita Summer​, also known as Talita McKechnie​​, died after her car crashed and caught fire under the Newlands overbridge on May 23.

    The 43-year-old was taken to Wellington hospital in critical condition, but later died in the early hours of May 24.

    Kat Zolita Mason, who was at Summer’s side when she died, said the pair met about six years ago and described Summer as her “best friend and soul sister”.

    I just want to say that over the last several years car fires in accidents have been much more common. Has no body in authority noticed this?
    Ford produced the Pinto which killed people that way and ford had to fix that.
    Are sone of these cars now available fire prone in NZ?
    Time NZTA did some homework.

    • Viking ,older fuel injection systems on vehicles will keep supplying fuel at 50 or 60 psi to a crashed car as long as the engine is still running so a small nick or cut in a high pressure hose or pipe will turn the car into a blast furnace if ignited until something fails from the heat..
      The pinto problem was caused by Ford using the fuel tank as a “2nd bumper”which exploded in a rear impact crash.

    • ‘Time NZTA did some homework.’

      Ha ha ha

      The outfit that is so shithouse they now employ 60 PR people.
      And trying to change their name to waka huhu bug

      You can be sure that 60 is more than the people with mechanical knowledge in that crappy, dodgy outfit.

      They did nothing for years when fake licences were being sold.
      Psssst, just call Ravi

      They got a gee up to finish the Transmission Gully when they started to push out the finish date to 2023 when they missed 2020.
      Lots of excuses and incompetence.
      Now the official date is Sept 2021- in 3 months.

      So be sure, with NZTA/waka huhu bug, it will be a rush job and a cock up and as soon as it is ‘opened’ they will have to start re-work just like the Krapiti expressway.

      Concerning the retirement village’ phenomenon, the article’s author overlooks a small detail; cost!!

      Like it or not, such establishments are , first and foremost, businesses, and as such are intended to return invested monies to the developers; those who have invested millions in the ‘village’ they have created. This is reflected in the prices for ‘dwellings’ within such locations, with many hundreds of thousands of dollars being required just to enter as ‘residents’ ; monies that do NOT give title to the bit of dirt that the ‘dwelling’ has been placed-on, but only to the building itself.

      The results? ‘Pensioners / Superannuitants’ having to take out substantial mortgages / loans to merely perch on something they will never own!

      Certainly most will have sold their homes prior to entry, but observation indicates that the difference between the sold premises and the new ‘temporary’ accommodation can be quite substantial, a difference which will inevitably require money from another source; the banks and, late in life, a-usually-substantial mortgage, a state that is apparently-regarded as being of no consequence by the banks who are quite happy to go along with the idea.

      Noticeably, nothing ever being said about what happens if the repayments aren’t met due to illness/ incapacity or mental decline, so (and as the banks presumably, such miscreants would be turfed out and (as there is always a waiting list) quickly replaced by those who are more ‘com[pliant ‘ and who have the readies close at hand.

      The fates of those who are removed is, of course, never discussed.

      In that context I am advised that the average occupancy rate for a unit in a retirement village unit is seven years, so for the developers / owners it’s ‘money for jam’ and PT Barnum’s comment about ‘suckers’ does come to mind.

      • True all that. But you see the customer is in my experience generally happy to bi in these villages.
        We have 38 of them last count here in Tga. I do work for many of them and I have to say that people like being in there. Security, someone around when you need them and so on. Organised activities and when you are in your 90’s that’s what people feel they need.
        I have met quite a few over the 100. Now lots of the oldies are simply not safe in their own home and indeed if you go through the DHB a few times for various things you get assessed and they will not allow you home. all about keeping them safe.
        The waste though is mindblowing as they all offer up new or fully refurbed units and villas.
        As for the capital cost, don’t kid yourself. Its all paid for by the first round of buyers.

    I doubt that the NZTA will investigate ‘cos ‘Electric’ is the ‘flavour of the moment’ and as their use is mandated by those in power, there mustn’t be anything done which might effect the ‘Electric good. Oil bad’ mantra.

    The fact that electric vehicles are prone to catching fire will no doubt be explained-away by the NZMSM (as the CoL’s mouthpiece) as being a ‘one-off’ event and ‘unlkiely to ever happen again’.

    • I A A S B, Years ago my Mrs and our children were at a Xmas carol night at our local hall , everyone was sitting outside in the afternoon sun listening to the music when the rate payers president asked everyone to move closer for the prizegiving for the kids Xmas theme.
      The Mrs got the kids moving forward and said to the Maori lady who is our friend “come on lets get closer” to which the answer was, pounding her hand on the grass “this is my land and no one tells me where I should sit” ,without thinking it through my Mrs responded ” it can’t be your land the grass has been mowed” .
      We are still friends and I love My Maori grandchildren, if the people we love and respect were purple green or pink we would still love them and know they would feel the same.
      Never forget that 95% of Maori are just like the rest of us . KIWIS.

  7. Another failure by a out of their depth Government that has no ideal how to handle money.
    “No checks in place or being made on beneficiaries paid $5,000 by the Government to move and start new jobs”.
    It has been touted as a way to get beneficiaries into jobs but 1 News can reveal no checks are made too see if those that move for a job stay in the role.
    This has led to accusations of workers moving jut to receive the $5,000 and quitting only weeks after.
    “(It was)” pretty catastrophic because they left and we could not employ anyone else Tasman apple grower Simon Easton told 1News.
    In the last seven months 2,272 people applied compared to seven months earlier before when under 500 kiwis signed up.
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/no-checks-being-made-beneficiaries-paid-government-move-start-new-jobs
    1 News has also discovered problems with another scheme to relocate workers for $1,000 where MSD weren’t checking with employers whether people were still working there either, the Ministry has now changed that after questions from 1News.

    Newshub understands the verbal altercation was with a male in his 20s who worked in Dr Smith’s office and occurred just after Collins became leader. It’s not known what the yelling was about, but Newshub’s been told both parties were shouting and that it didn’t last long. Newshub has also been told it wasn’t the staffer who made the complaint.

    Collins told The AM Show on Wednesday morning that Parliamentary Services have not briefed her on the incident, but she has been advised by Dr Smith that a staffer yelled at him and he shouted back.

    “Another person, a staff member of another MP, also heard that and recorded it, made a complaint to Parliamentary Service. Nick’s staff member did not complain to Parliamentary Service,” Collins said.

    Asked if making such a recording was underhand, Collins questioned its legality.

    A 2020 National candidate has resigned from the party after a podcast alleged he had been posing as his ex-girlfriend sending inappropriate messages.

    Newshub understands Upper Harbour candidate Jake Bezzant tendered his resignation to the party on Tuesday night.

    The first episode of the podcast ‘Whips, Chains and Brains’, was released on Spotify on May 31.

    One of the hosts, Tarryn, says she was in a relationship with Bezzant and accuses him of inappropriate behaviour.

    “Jake Bezzant who is involved in the National Party in New Zealand used to impersonate me online and would make Snapchats and dating sites and things and would engage in, like, online sex as me and would send nude images and videos of me,” she says.

  11. This from Simon Black at Sovereign Man. He writes some great emails.
    Mikhail Tukhachevsky was only 42 years old when Joseph Stalin promoted him to the highest possible military rank in the Soviet Union.
    As “Marshall of the Soviet Union”, Tukhachevsky had near supreme authority over all Soviet military forces. And he had been personally tasked by Stalin to modernize the military and prepare for war.
    But Tukhachevsky’s new authority didn’t last very long. Shortly after assuming his duties as Marshall, he was quietly reassigned to an unimportant post… and subsequently arrested.
    The year was 1936. And Tukhachevsky was suspected of plotting with the Germans to overthrow Stalin and implement a military dictatorship.
    Tukhachevsky was brutally beaten while in captivity, and he confessed to being a Nazi spy after two days of relentless torture.
    He was branded a traitor and executed.
    Tukhachevsky wasn’t the only one, either. This was a period in Soviet history called the Great Terror, in which an extremely paranoid Stalin purged the military of anyone who showed any sign of ideological dissent.
    The rest of the officers were quick to show Stalin that they were worthy, loyal comrades. Soldiers routinely ratted each other out and put each other on phony trials where a guilty verdict was a foregone conclusion.
    During Tukhachevsky’s trial, one of the judges passionately recounted to the Soviet press how much he loathed traitors who were disloyal to Stalin:
    “When I saw those scoundrels in the courtroom, I was shivering. A beast was in me. I didn’t want to judge them, but beat and beat them in a wild frenzy.”
    This judge’s name was General Ivan Belov. And even though he tried so desperately to prove that he was a loyal party member by eagerly participating in the purge, Belov knew that the purge would eventually come for him:
    “Tomorrow I shall be put in the same place [as Tukhachevsky].”
    Belov was himself arrested, tried, and executed within eighteen months.
    Over 36,000 Red Army officers were executed, sent to the gulag, or removed from command. This included the vast majority of the upper ranks— people like Tukhachevsky who had designed the modern Red Army, and knew best how to run it.
    The end result was that Stalin had severely weakened his own military, which is why the Soviets were totally unprepared when Hitler’s forces invaded a few years later.
    In fact Stalin was at such a tactical disadvantage in the early days of World War II that he released many of the purged officers from the Gulag, and forced them back into the military to help fight off the Nazis.
    Paranoid authoritarian leaders often fall victim to this impulse to demand ideological purity from their soldiers.
    And in a bizarre way, this is what’s happening in the United States now that the Defense Department has ordered its own purge of “extremism” in the ranks.
    Last month, the Secretary of Defense issued a memo on “Immediate Actions to Counter Extremism in the Military” and chose a man named Bishop Garrison to head the “Countering Extremism Working Group.”
    What does Bishop Garrison consider “extremism”?
    In 2019, he Tweeted about “misogynist, extremists, other racists” and said “If you support the President [i.e. Orange Man], you support that. There is no room for nuance with this.”
    So according to Garrison’s definition of extremism, at least 74 million Americans are extremists, including about half of the soldiers in the US military.
    In a June 2020 article, Garrison wrote that such extremism “must be cut out like the cancer it has been for so long.”
    Now it will be Garrison’s responsibility to create a lengthy screening process that all new military recruits must pass, in order to identify “specific information about current or previous extremist behavior.”
    A memo from March 2021 outlines the “Extremism and Insider Threat in the DoD [Department of Defense]” and identifies symbols like the ‘OK’ hand gesture as potential signs of extremism.
    Just recently a brand new Space Force commander named Matthew Lohmeier was reassigned, because he stated that, “diversity, inclusion and equity industry and the trainings we are receiving in the military … is rooted in critical race theory, which is rooted in Marxism.”
    Bishop Garrison can now wield supreme authority to cancel anyone in the military who expresses the wrong opinion.
    Obviously I’m not suggesting that the US is turning into a Stalinist regime.
    But it’s clear that the Defense Department’s priorities have shifted away from maintaining the most effective fighting force in the history of the world.
    Now it’s all about Diversity and Inclusion, from Special Operations Command to the Central Intelligence Agency.
    This is classic thinking for out-of-touch bureaucrats, most of whom have never been anywhere near a combat zone.
    If they had, they’d understand that when the bullets start flying, no soldier in a foxhole gives a damn about the skin color of the guy next to him. All they care about is staying alive, keeping their fellow soldiers alive, and accomplishing the objective.
    Yet now, at a time when the Chinese military is rapidly catching up to the West in terms of tactical prowess and weapons technology, and may already be far ahead in terms of cyberwarfare, the top priority in the US military is now social justice… and stamping out ideological dissent from its ranks.
    The policy changes are pushing many members of the military to leave voluntarily, something the Center for a New American Security calls a “looming retention crisis.”
    According to their report, an alarming number of talented military officers are leaving the service.
    Having some bureaucrat accuse you of being an extremist, when all you’ve ever done is put your life on the line in service of your country, probably doesn’t help this retention problem.
    It takes decades of careful design and intelligent decision-making for a nation to build an effective military.
    But it only takes 5-10 years of lunacy like this to wreck it.
    To your freedom,

    “Democratic congresswoman introduces bill demanding use of female dummies for crash tests”

    “US Representative Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-Washington, DC) has introduced legislation demanding that sexism be eliminated in the world of crash test dummies, mandating the addition of models made in female forms.
    Norton debuted the bill on Tuesday, complaining that the federal government currently uses only male crash test dummies and doesn’t require automakers to employ both male and female dummies.”

    “The bill was ridiculed on Twitter, with commenters suggesting that transgender crash test dummies will be needed next and that the government hasn’t even ascertained how many of the current dummies “identify as male.”

    “Another observer quipped that Washington’s transit authority had solved the issue of approximating the broad scope of passenger body types by using actual riders as its crash test dummies.”

    Refugees were sent to Australia for medical treatment after stints in detention

    >>Resettlement options will more than likely involve sending them to New Zealand

    The confirmation comes after talks between trans-Tasman leaders Scott Morrison and Jacinda Ardern earlier this week.

    Several hundred refugees remain in Australia after being transported under the defunct ‘medevac’ laws.

    Says Minister Karen Andrews
    ‘We’ve made it very clear with New Zealand that there won’t be a backdoor way for these people to be able to go to New Zealand and then return to Australia.”

  16. Fauci Emails Reveal Damage Control Scramble After ZeroHedge Spotlights Man-Made COVID-19 Theory

    In January, 2020, when the World Health Organization insisted that COVID-19 wasn’t transmissible between humans, and Dr. Anthony Fauci said that the risk to the American public from the virus was “low,” officials at the National Institutes of Health were scrambling to perform damage control after a controversial – and now withdrawn – study suggested that there were HIV-like ‘insertions’ included in SARS-CoV-2.

    The now-withdrawn paper piqued the interest of several journalists, including Zero Hedge (whose account Twitter banned one day after we updated our coverage of the article, claiming we ‘doxed’ a Chinese scientist in an earlier report).

    Thanks to a recent Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for Fauci’s emails, we now know that the National Institutes of Health was not only aware of the Indian report, but were actively discussing how to handle it.

    Mahuta says without reform average household bills in 2051 are forecast to range from $1900 to $13,900. Under reform proposals with five providers those figures range from $800 to $1800. With three providers the range is $800 to $1600.

    The Government announced plans in April to create a new organisation, Health NZ, to replace the 20 District Health Boards (DHBs). It will work in partnership with a new Māori Health Authority. Budget 2021 allocated $486 million to the restructure.

    National opposes it, particularly the Māori Health Authority, which leader Judith Collins has described as “separatist”. At a parliamentary select committee on Wednesday, health spokesperson Dr Shane Reti asked Little how the restructure will actually improve health outcomes.

    “So, $486 million – can you commit to one health outcome that will be better in the first year of establishment? Anything you like, that in a year’s time in July 2022, we can look back and say that with $486 million, this is better.”

    “Dr Reti, let’s not get cute about it,” he said. “This is a massive system transformation. The whole system will be better.”

    Financials released this week show that global entertainment giant Discovery paid millions of dollars for the MediaWorks TV arm.
    MediaWorks results for the year ended December 2021 show Discovery paid $20 million cash plus $3.5m in receivables.
    This figure came in just above the book value that MediaWorks had assigned to the TV arm in its valuation.
    MediaWorks financials showed a $4.8 million loss for the year on the back of $184m in revenue. The revenue was down $2 million from the amount recorded before.

        Its more likely because NZ first aid courses are a total scam and teach fuck all, its just a good cash cow they dont care about the quality delivered or saving lives its just box ticking and collecting money… name 1 person you know thats failed a course.
        A 1 day 1st aid course in australia will teach you much more then a 3 day nz course, and in aus if theyre not happy with your performance you fail and have to redo it.

        • I agree in part. It is most likely the doctor or nurse administering the vaccine who would have an epipen on hand.
          However, should the doctors and nurses who recieve the jab go into shock, or worse….. Frank the janitor may have to carry out the procedure.
          And yes, the course was shit.

  24. That would not be a surprise BN. Also this latest data is highly unlikely to be accurate as many people either do not know how to report or are told “it’s not related to the vaccine”. These are the short term adverse reactions god ( meant as an expression Nasska not a religious belief) knows what the longer term will bring.

  25. I just had a catch up email from a friend and he tells me Shaw is proposing to charge schools and hospitals for carbon credits !!!!
    Is there no one in the Government (or Wellington for that matter) with any common sense??

    …And the replacement of it by the hitherto-mythical Communist utopia, a system which has not, to date, ever actually worked successfully, but whose adherants and promotors ALWAYS say will succeed ‘this time’ and on their watch.

    DL is, of course, no different!

    Unfortunately, the current ‘opposition’ in NZ is evidently in full agreement with what she is doing, with the result being that she can now do whatever she likes, secure in the knowledge that, aside from timid words from the Nats, she can effectively get away with whatever she wants to.

    Were that it wasn’t so.

  27. Baity.
    Iwi deal to “project manage” highly complex and sophisticated offshore oil operations. New Zealand is awash in institutionalised extortion. Its a cancer on our govt and our culture and its costing taxpayers a fortune. Politicians have turned a blind eye for too long. Its time to start electing people brave enough to confront this BS.

  28. This needs to be shown and shared around, to challenge other schools, parents, teachers, about how they enslave others.

    A core value of the school is “rather than giving a man a fish, give them a hand up”, Dunlop told The Spinoff.
    “We don’t give out things for free as we don’t think it does anything for people’s mana.”
    The school has its own lunch initiative.
    In 2008, it launched a drive urging parents to only provide students with healthy food, alongside a “no fizzy drink” policy instituted a year earlier.

    Dunlop says it’s proven to be a huge success and as a result, “99.9 per cent of parents” opted not to take up the free lunches programme when it was suggested in a survey late last year.

    “When I started here we were a typical decile 1a school,” she said.
    “There wasn’t any healthy food coming into school, and instead there were two-litre bottles of Coke and a bag of chips and that was it.
    We had hungry kids.
    They were so badly behaved and attendance was shocking, so we had to do something and I think, as principals, we’re paid to make change,” she said.

    There had been “zero backlash” to the policy, she added.
    When a new child starts at the school the parents are given guidelines of what to buy and over time the children start bringing full lunch boxes which include fruit and a sandwich.

    “We often dumb parents down.
    But the stories we constantly hear are of parents who go to the supermarket and their children are telling them what they can and can’t put in the trolley,” she said.

    Dunlop is concerned, however, that the school is missing out on much-needed funding that is being put into the lunches programme instead.

    “We’re saving the government an excess of $1 million over three years, but we’re being disadvantaged by helping ourselves,” she said.
    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/the-free-lunch-debate-can-schools-tackle-hunger-and-dependency-at-the-same-time/JCAEEVSDQXJHX2M2545CV6XQBU/

    That principal deserves to receive a bonus. 🙂
    Funded by stripping other principals for going for “free school lunches” !

    So it would seem that the other principals and “do-gooders” want to go on enslaving, by following their agenda of building their “virtual signaling” empires.

    The rest of that article is crap as so many others have bought into that the government must provide.

  29. Peter Williams is off air today. Stephen McIvor wasn’t introduced as being ‘in for Peter Williams’; the show just started with “Magic Mornings with Stephen McIvor”.

    Has Peter finally been cancelled?

    p.s. Although he’s against the cycleway bridge proposal, he’s just said that he likes what the government is doing socially and he thinks we should be working to stop climate change – but it has to be ‘done sensibly’. I switched off.
