    • With George Clooney as Godfather and Oprah as Godmother??
      Two homos.
      Enlightened 21st century shite.

      The parents would like to thank the surrogate, Maude, for her sterling efforts.
      Me-again is so relieved as even though she is a great actress and world-famous actress (and great feminist), who can turn on the water works at a second’s notice, she was tired of pretending to be preggers.

      The world can rejoice another person of colour (P.O.C.s) who will only be part-ginger but will ignore the white privilege that comes with multi million dollar handouts from the British landed gentry.

  1. I was woken by heavy rainfall overflowing the gutter.

    This is known as a ‘Sid Going’ weather event.
    There is heavy rainfall in Auckland but it sidesteps the water catchment areas so Auckland Council can pretend there is a drought .

    The hose ban will continue; water blasting is outlawed and officials remain blind to in excess of 400 mm of rain in five months with no month having less than 70 mm of rain in 2021.
    Let the lies and oppression continue.

    Very clever those Sid Going rain events.
    Just in :-
    Water-careless has just announced they saw some UFOs over the dams…..

    • “I was woken by heavy rainfall overflowing the gutter”??????

      Are you sure that it wasn’t Ricardo Mandezovers boyfriend spreading faecal matter as an act of being ‘kind’?

      Heaven for Betsy. Surely we need more faecal shit stains in the beehive?

      Oh my goodness, surely you jest. What we need is more cycle lanes on our biggest congested city to allow the unicycles a fair pass amongst our clowns to the circus.
      Thank God we have Julie And Bender to set us straight. Could be worse though……..imagine if Ricardo Manbezover built a wall? For a start, it would never get built.

      Apparently, it’s legal to be Gay and do crime……….no worries about being gay but the crime stuff under parliament ‘privilege’ compared to “white privilege” does my head in.

      Last time I looked, Isn’t Ricardo a causality of Caucasian BS. Wow, the poor wee victim should get a train ticket and learn his station in life.

      Absolutely hypocritical for the likes of the road maggots such as the Greens when their spokesman/wommins declare road tolls let alone the Mexican soyboy that whinges about ‘immigration’ whilst wanting more walls built than a Mexican Chihuahua.

      Maybe, just maybe, Dikardo confuses himself for Zoro? Apparently they are both blind and eat ass aka dags for a living

  2. Da Honours

    Companions of the Queen’s Service Order:
    -The Honourable Ruth Suzanne Dyson, for services to the wine industry and single handedly saving two vineyards from receivership during the GFC.

    Officers of the New Zealand Order of Merit
    -Mani Bruce Mitchell, for services to intersex advocacy and education.
    aka. for ladyboy services
    -and, puke…Carol Ann Beaumont, for services to the union movement and women’s rights.

    Virtually nothing for rugby or R League (aside from Buck Shelford and that was 30+ years ago ) but lots for hockey and netball.
    Not really a surprise.
    Liebour must be pissed off they don’t want the Robbers son perving in the dressing rooms.

    Members of the New Zealand Order of Merit
    -Mike Hunty for services to white people
    Nah, just kidding, that will never happen.
    The entire cabinet would rip their eyes out before awarding anyone for services to white people
    But they are not wacist. No Sir.

    I see they got sneaky- instead of services to the Indian communidy, or the Chinese communidy, it is now ‘ethnic communidy’
    Lots of stuff for ‘services to conservation’

  3. Ministry does a u-turn on counting uneaten lunches.
    Officials have u-turned on a multimillion dollar school lunch policy and will now start regular of the numbers of taxpayers funded leftovers.
    In Hamilton alone, hundreds of lunches packs were sent untouched to food shelters for the community to pick up everyday.
    Opposition MP’s called the lack of rigour in the program “irresponsible “, but Education Minister Chris Hipkins said it would be “nanny statish” to make schools monitor the uneaten lunches.
    But now in a about turn schools will now be counting the average dailly number of surplus lunches and reporting that to the Ministry of Education.
    https://i.stuff.co.nz/national/125296004/ministry-does-uturn-on-counting-uneaten-school-lunches
    This is the problem with Jacindas pet projects they obviously have not done there homework and have willy nilly set a program in progress without finding out that the responsible parents don’t want their children being told to eat school funded rubbish instead of what they choose for their children to have.
    These school lunches were for children who weren’t given food by there parents for lunches but Jacinda Ardern and Labour decided that everyone at school where the program was put in will have a free lunch
    So the taxpayer pays again for those that should never be allowed to have children until they realize it comes with responsibility.

  4. From the people who did the great interview with Catherine Austin-Fitts.

    Astrid Stuckelberger | Global Corruption | Planet Lockdown 18 mins

    This interview with WHO whistleblower Astrid Stuckelberger provides insight into the inner workings of the organization. She worked on the International Health Regulations in multiple countries which form part of the legalese of how the pandemic was declared world wide. Listen to her perspective on how the actions of the WHO violate their own regulations.

  6. Aldous Huxley, from a letter to George Orwell 1949.

    “Within the next generation I believe that the world’s rulers will discover that infant conditioning and narco-hypnosis are more efficient, as instruments of government, than clubs and prisons, and that the lust for power can be just as completely satisfied by suggesting people into loving their servitude as by flogging and kicking them into obedience.”

    • In the former New Zealand here are no shows like Sky News Australia, nor are there any media personalities (except maybe Peter Williams) who stand up and fearlessly present an alternative view like Rowan Dean, Alan Jones,Peta Credlin et al do.

  8. Got this from Act

    “The Housing Minister has again blamed Mum and Dad investors for her own Government’s failure to improve housing affordability.

    Megan Woods yesterday called for landlords to show more compassion to ease the housing crisis.

    We know that landlords are compassionate.

    Through our Housing Stories website, we’ve heard from landlords charging less than market rates that the proposed change will mean they’ll be forced to put up rents.

    Renters have also told us they recognise the change will put rents up. Officials who advise the Government understand it, too.

    If the Government goes through with this change later this year, three things will occur:

    1. Landlords will increase rents in direct proportion to the tax effect of lost deductibility.

    2. Renters will put more pressure on state and non-state welfare.

    3. The change will have no impact whatsoever on the supply and demand for housing.

    We need more competency from this Government and fewer divisive policies that will do nothing to improve housing affordability.

    ACT would focus on easing planning rules and smarter infrastructure funding. Only that will address housing affordability for the next generation.

    ACT has been clear. We would reverse this divisive policy and have honest conversations about housing affordability.

    Yours sincerely,

    Brooke van Velden
    ACT Housing Spokesperson”

    At least she seems to have some brains.

    • a friend’s letter to Brooke.

      Hi Brooke
      We all have compassion for our tenants, but business is business.

      You may want to tell three pie Woods that apart from just breaking even on my rental, the interest foregone on my massive deposit amounts to about 25k which is in effect a donation to my tenant. Add the tax deductibility bs issue and ask her how much more compassionate she wants me to be. These people have no clue about economic consequences.

      Best

      The git wot got pissy when Me-again did not call him back.
      Most decent jokers would count that as an upside.

      The git wot ran Gnews of the World as Editor where massive illegal activity was occurring under his watch to fabricate half baked stories.

      The git wot fort he was Trump’s mate; and Trump saw through him and ghosted him; so Morgan got ..here we go again… all pissy

      The git wot changes ‘is mind faster than Manchester weather.

      W.O.F.T.
      If you are on Morgan’s side, in 3 months you wont be.
      He changes that fast.

  10. This video has I think been posted before. It is Brett Weinstein interviewing Dr Pierre Kory. It is long 2 and a half hours but is worthwhile if you haven’t watched it. An interesting point right at the end where Pierre states that the FLCCC is about to release a protocol which has been hugely successful in treating “long covid”. He also discusses work that is being done in treating people with adverse reactions to the vax. Seems that Ivermectin actually binds to the spike protein and can neutralise it. Might be useful to know if you have friends or family with any longer term effects from the vax.

  11. “HAVE YOUR SAY”????
    No, no, no…….obviously you didn’t get the memo from our illustrious dear leader according to NZ’s new educational curriculum e.g MSM (propaganda). Whiteman bad, Orangeman worse but the 3rd world best.

    How dare you have a say, esp in our NEW COUNTRY i.e Aotearoa. You’re only allowed to have your say if it suits the NEW country led by a fish and chip wrapper.

    As bad as it sounds, the gloss off Ms ED aka our PM is dwindling. As a prediction, the left will start eating the Greens and confuse watercress for puha.

    Just sit back and watch. She’s about to be exposed as well as our ink printing dollar man, Grant the Uni unionist leader. As soon as next years deficit is announced, he’ll be not only exposed as a third rate economist, he’ll be exposed as a total fuckwit as our productive “citizens” flood Australian shores as we did under Auntie Helens tenure.

    Regarding the next election: Sit back, the left will eat itself whilst the Greens will question how much watermelons actually cost in Iran, Mexico etc etc.

    Just a prediction: Judith Collins is fully aware that her leadership is in question and her time is marked as leader of the opposition and she’s basically keeping her (National) seat warm until the next NP leader pops his/her head above the parapet.

    Is pine needle tea the answer to covid vaccine shedding / transmission? Learn about suramin, shikimic acid and how to make your own extracts
    05/09/2021 / By Mike Adams

    Disclaimer: The information presented in this article and podcast are for informational purposes only. Nothing present here is intended to diagnose or treat any disease, and there are no supplements or products offered for sale in relation to this information.

    Word is spreading that pine needle tea may offer a solution against covid vaccine “shedding” or transmission, which appears to be a phenomenon where vaccinated people are spreading harmful particles or substances to others around them. See this article from a WordPress blog site called “Ambassador Love.”

    That article states:

    There is a potential antidote to the current spike protein contagion, which is called Suramin. It’s found in many forests around the world, in Pine needles. Suramin has inhibitory effects against components of the coagulation cascade and against the inappropriate replication and modification of RNA and DNA. Excessive coagulation causes blood clots, mini-clots, strokes, and unusually heavy menstrual cycles.

    Pine needle tea is one of the most potent anti-oxidants there is and it’s known to treat cancer, inflammation, stress and depression, pain and respiratory infections. Pine tea also kills parasites.

    STAR ANISE TEA – BENEFITS AND HOW TO PREPARE

    An important component of several over-the-counter flu drugs is a compound called Shikimic acid. Many of these drugs actually source their Shikimic acid from star anise.
    However, Shikimic acid alone doesn’t have much of an effect against the flu1. It must be combined with the plant antioxidant quercetin. Quercetin is found naturally in a number of plants including capers, radishes, red onions, and kale. It is important for many processes within the body and can even be taken in supplement form.

    • Pine needles and pine bark contain OPC.
      oligomeric proanthocyanidins
      Discover By a freshman who studied the first people who went to Canada and were seriously ill. The redskins brewed pine needle tea and they recovered. Many years later the Frenchman (whose name I don’t remember ). researched until he found the compound.
      It is also found in red grape skins and seed.
      There is a company in Paeroa that distill the opc from pine bark and markets it world wide. OPC has been available in NZ to my knowledge since about 1995 and its a lot more common now as various outfits have included it in their products. It has some amazing properties in including vascular health and I have seen people who have been harmed by sprays, solvents paints, smoking, recover their health with longer term use of OPC.
      Its really good for ciriorsis as well.
      Have used it for years.

      The power of OPC
      Pycnogenol® is a bioflavonoid derived from the bark
      and needles of the pine tree Pinus maritima. This
      patented bioflavonoid contains the powerful group of
      antioxidants called oligomeric proanthocyanidins
      (OPC).1 As an antioxidant, OPC are 50 times more
      effective than vitamin E and 20 times as strong as
      vitamin C2 3 (This does not mean that they can
      substitute for vitamin E and C or their antioxidant
      functions). OPC does more than just scavenge free
      radicals, however.

      The first people to bring it to NZ founded Abundant Health.
      If you are ailing, have blood pressure problems and disease issues give them a call.

      I can vouch for the product.

  13. A letter penned by 41 former Olympians and world-class athletes will be sent to the Prime Minister and Minister for Sport on Monday, calling for better consultation on transgender athletes in community sport.
    The high-powered group includes Olympic gold medallists Danyon Loader and Barbara Kendall, former All Black Jeff Wilson, and running legends Allison Roe and Anne Audain.
    They want wider consultation on a draft policy that Sport NZ has sent out to rainbow groups, proposing ways to allow trans women athletes to compete against other women at club and community level.

    • ‘they voted Labour last year but now regret the move’

      well whatever way the wind blows these facile people today, they should not have a vote anyway.
      They are stupid.
      What, three years of failure to deliver taught them nothing?

      This is where universal franchise falls down.
      Some people are just too stupid to be given the responsibility of a vote.
      It is worse in Australia where you are compelled by law to vote even if you dont have a clue what is going on, and have no interest. .

      Here’s an idea.
      For every dollar of tax paid, you get one vote .

      You want more votes, make a voluntary payment to the IRD.
      You are the ones paying for everything in the country.

      In an incorporated company the shareholders get a vote in proportion to the number of voting shares they have .
      How stupid would it be if a person with 200 shares gets the same voting right as someone with a 25% shareholding in a company (with say 1,000.000 issued shares) ?
      So why run a county’s voting system that way?

      14

      • That works up until those who do have a clue become pensioners. Hardly gaga at 65 but many stop ‘paying’ much tax at that point. Many pensioners vote conservatively as they have a few clues about finances and how the economy works after a long working life paying tax.

        9

        0

        • The system as proposed still works.

          These people (pensioners with few other income sources or assets) are not paying to run the country and are drawing down on the pension which currently costs more than the total spend on either Healthcare or Education.
          This year at about 17 Billion dollars p.a. and projected to be $20 billion dollars p’a. in 2024.
          Total health spend p.a. is below this.
          Ditto for education.
          These people voted in 1975 for ‘Pay as You Go’ universal superannuation .
          Australia went to a realistic compulsory super scheme in 1992.
          Kiwisaver is a joke.

          Their medical costs typically increase past 60 – hearing, eyes, other, and when they move to a rest home – as you well know- their funds are run down until to the 230k mark then the taxpayer pays.
          They cant take it with them and if they did estate planning before hand to protect assets good for them.
          Simply put.
          At in excess of $1000 a week in most rest homes this is a tax funds drawdown.
          They are net users of the tax pool.

          As I said above people can make a voluntary contribution at any time to the IRD.
          This applies to the bleeding heart wankers who say tax rates in NZ are too low.
          Of course – just like the mouthy clowns who will never have a refugee in their house despite gabbing on about them – they never make that voluntary payment.

          If these OAPs voted sensibly during their working/tax paying years then there should be a good Govt in place to do the right thing for them .
          Unlike the current situation.
          If you’re white, you’ll get a fright.

          Your comment
          ‘Many pensioners vote conservatively as they have a few clues about finances and how the economy works’
          Seems strange:
          If they reach 65 and have few clues about finance or how the economy works then it is a good thing they don’t get to vote much for the Govt or have many votes.

          40+ years of not bothering to learn, suggests they spent too much time watching the crap on TV1 and spew scrub when they should have read YSB and Croaking Cassandra.
          Even if they had spent a lot of time at the greyhounds or the horse track they would have learnt a lot about economics.

          This Voting method still works as proposed.

    Anger has erupted around the country over the Government’s much stronger approach to protect indigenous biodiversity, as outlined in the Draft National Policy Statement for Indigenous Biodiversity (NPSIB). Due to take effect in July 2021, it contains a set of objectives and policies to identify, protect, manage, and restore indigenous biodiversity.

      One of the reasons Labour is right behind this legislation that was put in place, that now demands all councils to act on this.
      That is one area where councils have hired many more 4 year degree clip board tick boxers, environment, sustainable, carbon, etc.. bio diverse etc. at very high costs with total authoritative power backed up by the judiciary.

      They have become a law unto themselves!
      The simply put things on the title land, & most times you become aware of it, is when you are selling. So much too late to protest, challenge & resist.

      No compensation seems to be required, so you are lucky if there are any crumbs, like rate rebate, which is really just a crumb to the original value, and nor recompenses for years of rates paid on that land.

      A real challenge to council & government would be to present a sale & purchase agreement of said land to the council.
      Then it will be significant if they believe it is worth purchasing.
      If they decline, then it proves it that block of land is not significant!

      The new buyer takes note, and his price takes that in account, leaving the seller very much skinned by the government.

      That will give more kudos to Ardern when she will trumpet & ‘adhan’ about how good New Zealand is punching above its weight, and so leading & saving the world, per UN. 🙁

  19. Getting under their skin – Good. We need more of this. As for the two plonkers, give up the trappings of colonisation – yes, your cell phone, modern clothes, car, house, electricity, running water, sewage systems, hospitals, KFC etc etc if you are serious about your position. Or else, Go and right Royally Fuck Your selves.

  21. Nancy Qian argues that boosting China’s worryingly low fertility rate requires many other, more difficult reforms

    In an effort to address rapid population aging, China has just announced that it will allow all families to have up to three children. The decision comes on the heels of widely publicized new data showing that the Chinese fertility rate in 2020 was only 1.3 per woman, which is similar to that of Japan (1.36 in 2019) and notably lower than that of the United States (1.7).

    But a below-replacement fertility rate is only one part of China’s demographic problem. A second issue is the sheer size of its older population. Before 1971, Chinese family-planning policies were pro-natal, restricting access to contraceptives and family-planning education. As a result, the country’s current or soon-to-be elderly population has grown particularly large: the size of the population aged 15-24 is only around 72% that of those aged 45-54, compared to 79% in Japan and 100% in the US. This top-heavy demographic structure makes the problem of declining fertility even more acute, because new, younger workers are needed to replace those who will retire and require support.

  22. Well imagine my shock!

    A California virologist who told Anthony Fauci that COVID-19 looks ‘potentially engineered’ and ‘inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory’ – only to later reverse course and publish a ‘natural origin’ paper 8 weeks later (before receiving a multi million-dollar NIH grant) has deleted more than 5,000 tweets.

    When Grants become bribes then science is corrupted and scientists become crooks. It’s widespread and pernicious.

  23. Nurses set to strike on Wednesday after rejecting the latest pay offer. No doubt the government will buckle, but in the meantime the big question is “Will Andy get angry enough to burst a blood vessel and who is going to help him?”

  24. Angry should be concentrating on getting the Waikato base hospital back on line from its cyber attack nearly a month ago. Crowing they have radiation therapy back on line is only a tiny part of the job that needs fixing so all patients can resume care.

    Waikato DHB’s radiation therapy service is running again today for the first time since the ransomware attack crippled its computer systems last month.

    America First Has Taken Over the GOP in Arizona – Those Not on the Train Are Being Replaced or Resigning

    “As with all political parties after the loss of the Oval Office, Arizona’s GOP is no different. According to the numbers recently released by the Secretary of State’s Office, the GOP is growing, and that growth has unsettled some of the more established members.

    A recent exodus by the heads of Legislative District 15 is one such example of how the new blood is shaking out the old.

    Legislative District 15, a primarily upper-middle-class area that includes parts of Scottsdale and Paradise Valley, has long been a bastion of what the grassroots refer to as “the establishment.” President Donald Trump changed the old dynamic, and while many members of “the establishment” welcomed the change, the hardcore neocon faction of the GOP, sometimes referred to as the ‘McCain Machine, did not.”

  26. Waka kotahi has a duty of care to all New Zealanders as a nation builder providing much of the critical infrastructure necessary to connect our communities.

    Just seven years ago Waka Kotahi NZTA was the most trusted department in government.

    Having worked in infrastructure for a couple of decades, I struggle to comprehend that an asset owner manager of Waka Kotahi’s scale and significance only plans out to a horizon of six years.

    This is an organisation that represents close to 1.5 per cent of our national gross domestic product and should be planning well past 2050.

    • Read the comments for counter balance.
      I read it yesterday
      Sadly commie Boucher’s butchers have chopped out a lot of the comments and closed it.
      This means they have left the comments they want to appear which are anti Council not anti-waka huhu bug .

      NZTA is truly awful.
      Of 1500 staff over 60 are PR critters.
      Probably more than properly qualified engineers.
      You have to be pretty bad to employ that many full-time, expert liars.

  27. I just noticed the ‘Plant Variety Rights ‘ bill that is out for consultation.
    They are amending to allow for the Crowns ‘obligations’ under the TOW.
    It appears to allow for Maori appointees to look at everything that is put up and to consider kaitiaki.

    FFS the fingerprints of race are infiltrating every sphere of Government.
    I don’t see any obligation under the Treaty myself .Surely the Crown is THE authority and does not need race based approval.
