  1. Unbelievably Pravda 1 last night reported on the huge nationwide demonstrations yesterday. I suppose they couldn’t ignore it.

    Congratulations to everyone who supported it. Of course the stick insect bitch was no where to be seen. Probably out with snapper boy in their ute.

    • Sod all about it in the news today. Might not have happened, except for one article I saw in Granny from Claire Trevett. Her angle was basically “don’t dismiss the protest by the farmers, as it may well be that it’s more than just the farmers who are pissed”.
      Obviously, all would be tickety-boo if it was just the farmers.

But she said even some of her friends that are Jacinda supporters are starting to ask “What the Hell?”. If this is the case, there is hope.

    • I’ve just seen that TV1 ‘news’ report on YouTube. There wasn’t any mention of New Zealand in it and in fact the intro said it happened in a place called ‘Aotearoa’.

      The comments are turned off.

      • No comments, so as to keep isolated any dissident.
        The isolation is intentional as they know that people will feel they have some power when they see others in agreement.
        Then the real push back, in the debates & discussions bring up some interesting facts, that reveal what is omitted, and the false foundation of what the left is pushing,
        They can not bear to have others weigh those facts up, that will cut through their political nonsense ideology.

  2. Gore and districts represent!!! 
    Wonder why james shaw didnt come to Gore and meet with those few pakeha farmers down south?  
    Why is cindy too chicken shit to even comment or acknowledge? 

    https://i.stuff.co.nz/national/125780015/pm-wont-comment-on-farmer-protests-as-groundswell-nz-gridlocks-gore
    Thats a farking good effort and the streets were packed with supporters not just a few pissed off farmers.

    Wonder if cindy still gunna use the “team of 5 million” line? Going by turnouts across the country and the massive suppport from the communities that team of 5mil has withered away somewhat. Haha fuck you cindy, hope jethro managed to escape for a weekend of uteing and boating cuz hes in for a miserable time being trapped at home over the wknd with the mad queens hurty feelz.

  3. Cindy and bloomfailed have made compulsory vaccinations and weekly or fortnightly covid testing of border staff supppsedly for OUR saftey…
    Well the biggest threat to us is our stupid brain dead govt, how about to protect us from further stupid decisions the people in power in both central and local govts be drug tested… you cant make stupid decisions and blow money that easily while sober!  
    the higher up they are the more often they should be tested.  Back benchers, councilors etc fortnightly, ministers weekly and the top few cindy chippy robbo and pies etc should be tested daily along with the likes of bloomfailed.

    Id love to see someone question cindy on taking a drug test, any denial or refuding will just make it look like shes got something to hide esp when she already looks and acts like a cracked out meth head.

    • Well the biggest threat to us is our stupid brain dead govt,

      I beg to differ. I think the biggest threat to us is the mindless sycophancy of the ‘new normals’ who robotically buy into the shit that the government shovels on a daily basis.

      Unlike Stalinist USSR, Hitler’s Germany, Mao’s China etc, New Zealand hasn’t (yet) got a police force or army which would be capable of mounting any resistance to a campaign of mass resistance. Yesterday’s admirable turnout was a starting point, but up until then New Zealand has been a totally supine subjugated population.

      The big test will come when the Marxists try to make ‘negative tests’ and ‘vaccine certificates’ and mask wearing at all times in restaurants, cinemas, gyms, shopping centres etc. If the people (and the businesses) mindlessly comply, then we will know the battle has been lost and we are faced with a truly sinister future.

      So no. Bad as it is, the biggest threat is not the government. The biggest threat is our inaction in the face of the destruction of our society and our freedom.

    Judge Rejects Arizona Senate’s Motion to Keep Election Audit Records Private

    A judge on Thursday rejected the Arizona Senate’s motion to dismiss a public records lawsuit relating to its independent full audit of ballots cast in Maricopa County in the 2020 election.

    The lawsuit was filed by watchdog group American Oversight and sought records of communications between Senate officials and external vendors working on the audit, including Florida-based cybersecurity firm Cyber Ninjas, a private company hired by the Arizona Senate to oversee the audit of Arizona’s most populous county. It also sought documents related to the cost of the audit, donor information, and its operations.

    Democrat Congresswoman Arrested After Leading Protesters Into Senate Building: Officials
    By Jack Phillips
    July 15, 2021 Updated: July 15, 2021

    U.S. Capitol Police on Thursday arrested Rep. Joyce Beatty (D-Ohio) during a protest at the Hart Senate Office Building in the Capitol.

    Photos taken by media outlets show Beatty, the chair of the Congressional Black Congress, being led away by a female officer while in handcuffs.

    Beatty also appeared to celebrate her own arrest, posting photos of herself on Twitter being led away by the Capitol Police officer.

    The protest appeared to be about voting rights and demonstrating against GOP-led state legislatures passing election integrity measures in recent months.

    “I stand in solidarity with black women and allies across the country in defense of our constitutional right to vote,” Beatty said in a statement after her arrest. “We have come too far and fought too hard to see everything systematically dismantled and restricted by those who wish to silence us. Be assured that this is just the beginning. This is Our Power, Our Message.”

    Happened to watch Maori TV last night for a while. Best program on any airwave and the advertizing was full on about Illumato. They have made a program at your expense just to educate the maori about their rights. Monday night its aired.

    • I think we’ll see it very soon when that hideous rug muncher from the Greens leads a rag tag bunch of dole bludging suntanned early settlers into battle against a marina development that they don’t think should go ahead despite being fully compliant. After the Ihumatao fiasco they feel emboldened and are being egged on by the usual suspects.

  6. A man & his girlfriend were driving across the
    desert when they had a flat on the car. Getting out,
    the boyfriend was about to start changing it when
    he spotted a cowboy sitting on his horse rolling
    a smoke. He told his girlfriend that he would make
    the cowboy change the tire & for her to just
    wait there.

    “Hey arsehole, get down off of that horse
    & come over here & change this tire” he said.
    The cowboy continued to roll the smoke & ignored him.
    “Hey shithead, I told you to get over here & change
    this tire or I’m going to kick your arse”.

    The cowboy looked at him & then said” I’ll tell you
    what, fella. I’m going to finish my smoke. Then I’m
    going to get down off my horse, kick your ass & make
    you change that tire while I screw your girlfriend”.

    “And,I’m gonna make you hold my balls up out of the
    hot sand while I do it”.

    Later as they were driving on across the desert,
    the girlfriend says, “that cowboy was pretty tough,
    wasn’t he baby”?

    “Naw, he wasn’t so tough”, said the guy.
    “Did you see him flinch every time I dropped
    his balls onto the hot sand?”

    Never mind the Oath to do no harm. That appears to have changed to Do as we say or else.
    Given we are desperately short of medico’s perhaps it’s time for a clean out of the cartel that rules.

    A group of dissident doctors have joined the ranks of those seeking to undermine confidence in New Zealand’s vaccine campaign by spreading misinformation. What are they saying and do they pose a real threat to our Covid-19 response? CATE BROUGHTON reports.

    On June 14, talkback radio host Peter Williams welcomed Wellington GP Matt Shelton onto his show to discuss the Covid-19 vaccine.

    Shelton was from the little-known group New Zealand Doctors Speaking Out on Science (NZDSOS), Williams said.

    The host told listeners he wanted to ask questions about a recent report from the Centre for Adverse Reactions Monitoring, which included information about two elderly people who had died after having the vaccine. The report concluded both deaths were unrelated to the Pfizer vaccine.

  9. Jack was about to marry Jill and his father took him to one side “When I married your mother, the first thing I did when we got home was take off my trousers” he said. “I gave them to your mother and told her to put them on. When she did they were enormous on her and she said to me that she couldn’t possibly wear them, as they were too large…. I told her of course they’re too big. I wear the trousers in this family and I always will. Ever since that day, we have never had a single problem.” Jack took his father’s advice and as soon as he got Jill home, alone after the wedding he did the same thing; took of his trousers, gave them to Jill and told her to put them on. Jill said that the trousers were too big and she couldn’t possibly wear them. “Exactly” replied Jack “I wear the trousers in this relationship and I always will. I don’t want you to forget that “. Jill paused and removed her knickers and gave then to Jack ” Try on these” s he said, so he tried them on but they were too small. “I can’t possibly get into your knickers” said Jack, “Exactly ” replied Jill. “And if you don’t change your bloody attitude, you never will. “

  10. My wife ( the gay Rav liker) asked me to watch TV3s coverage on the Farmer protest… Stupidly, I did. Does TV3 have a hotline to the Communist Bitch where orders to undermine anything anti government are dictated? They picked on two signs, ( one which said don’t use Aot..(I won’t say that word just like Brenton Tarrant) and the other saying she is a communist Bitch and then instaed of interviewing farmers interviewed some Dairy guy and essentially undermined the whole point the farmers were making. Hope they all fucking Die of Covid in TV3. Yes get the vaccination, TV3 stooges and fucking die. Anyway, after much blinding and fucking I left the room.

      “My daughter attends Auckland University and is doing Criminology, Sociology , Psychology and languages”
      All three of those were the Joke degrees when I was at university.
      It did not matter so much then as there were no fees and plenty of holiday and part time work.
      Really? What is she going to do with that?

  11. I have a serious question about “Maori land.”
    Does it include land owned freehold by individuals who self-identify as Maori or is it only land that is owned tribally?

    What is your understanding of the meaning of “Maori land.”

    10

    0

    • It’s tribal land, owned in freehold by Māori as tenants in common. I believe a number of them are structured through an incorporation with shareholding. There is special legislation and a special court (Māori Land Court) to administer this.

      Source: Had to study that as part of getting my supporting agents’ license for Mama Bear. The legislation is not pretty!

        • Mama Bear works in real estate. I’m supporting her as a new agent, so do open homes, etc. so she doesn’t have to partner up with somebody outside the family. Costs me a few hours over a weekend, but doubles her share of the commission.

          11

          1

      • So if a Maori chief’s family free-holded 1,500 acres of formerly tribal land in the 1970s, this would no longer be “Maori land” today?

        What if the same family purchased it from a non-Maori entity? Still not “Maori land”?

        Or if a small tribe of 20 families decided to freehold and distribute their collective 50,000 acres of land amongst themselves, would this land “disappear” from the “Map of Maori Land” and cause great hand-wringing amongst white leftists a generation later?

        0

        • For what it’s worth I agree with Pascal’s interpretation. There’s no differentiation between Maori & Pakeha freehold land. Maori land is owned by tribal groups most of which have been corporatised for ease of day to day administration*. My understanding is that councils have given up on trying to collect rates on Maori land:

          …..”A Bill giving local councils the power to write off rates arrears, make unused Māori land unrateable, and allow for multiple homes on Māori land is just a start to a wider conversation about Māori land”…..

          https://www.nzherald.co.nz/whanganui-chronicle/news/maori-land-rating-bill-corrects-100-years-of-disadvantage/74KAB7PLJEI5HVYY7EG3Z4HXRA/

          I dare say the specials will still demand council services though.

          * The reason most Maori land sat unused & growing gorse is that the diverse multiple owners could never agree on what to do with it.

          9

          0

          • The biggest reason is banks won’t lend against Maori land due to the ownership model. It has been a long standing problem.

            As have restrictive council regulations that hamper Maori developing land according to their needs.

            In Ruatoria there was once a thriving Maori owned diary company. That regularly won prestigious awards, for their butter, in London.

            The company employed Maori, had Maori farmers, and would guarantee loans to allow development on Maori land. But you had to agree not to consume alcohol.

            Accounts from the time talk of bright eyed, prosperous and optimistic Natives.

            It all turned to shit when the company owner died.

            • …..”The biggest reason is banks won’t lend against Maori land due to the ownership model”…..

              Not often that I sympathise with banks but they wont lend against something they can’t sell up if they don’t get paid. Either we (aka the kind & benevolent government) act as guarantor & cough up when things go tits up as they inevitably will with everyone having a say or the status quo remains.

              • Yes I don’t blame the banks. Even if they could foreclose, the bad publicity would be ruinous for the bank.

                Government assistance could be provided, with special laws and powers, to ensure the money was used correctly and paid back. Far better than handouts to buy smokes and farm babies.

          • Maori land has gorse growing all over it as it is like the story ‘Little Red Hen’. When it comes to doing the necessary work there is a loud chorus of “Not I” from the collective owners.

            0

    • It’s land that’s specially designated as being the best gorse-growing land in NZ. Pre-colonisation, gorse was very important to the maori for it’s medicinal properties, their tooth pick industry which made up 10% of exports, and for fencing in their cattle. It was also used as insulation in woven sleeping mats on trips to Antarctica. To combat the spread of gorse into their pineapple farms, the maori invented 2,4,5-T. Sales of 2,4,5-T to Captain Cook allowed them to launch their first space mission at Mahia, from the carpark of their Harley Davidson factory. And then colonisation fucked it all up.

            (And don’t forget) ‘US’; y’know, the evil whitey colonists who supposedly ‘invaded’ (Despite being invited by chiefs who were trying to prevent their own demise at the hand of their fellow ‘indigenous’) a bunch of islands that had been previously-colonised by the self-declared ‘indigenous’ peoples whose ancestors had themselves colonised said islands in around the Fourteenth Century and whom on arrival had proceeded to exterminate all and any peoples then in residence, before settling-down to several centuries of continual fighting and extermination. (I know, very-long sentence, but you get the idea).

            That in fact ‘Maori’ actually profitted from said ‘invasion’ (which ultimately prevented their self-extermination) is, of course, conveniently-overlooked…

  12. Jack Tane is a fucking soy-boy cuck. Read the shite he’s written in the Herald today …

    QUOTE: You’d have to agree, for the most part the, protest yesterday was a good bit of theatre.

    QUOTE: Speaking of special treatment, did those protesting farmers feel the same way when their industry received the best part of a billion dollars in support for Mycoplasma Bovis? Did they take to the streets to protest hundreds of millions of dollars they received in irrigation subsidies? Did protestors turn out in anger at drought relief packages, or flood relief, or the Covid-19 wage support? If the agriculture sector is concerned about special treatment, just wait until it hears about the Emissions Trading Scheme.

    QUOTE: I’ll stop there though because, honestly, all of us are hypocrites.

    QUOTE: t’s never going to be absolutely perfectly equitable but – take my examples above – if we’re honest, the sector has been well-supported for a very long time. I don’t think a few thousand extra dollars for a ute and some environmental compliance expenses are going to be so devastating that they fundamentally threaten farming communities’ way of life.

    Clearly he has no real understanding of the issues facing our farming sector. And doesn’t seem to care, because his sister has popped out another baby. Who, pound for pound, year for year, will do far more damage to the environment than a single fucking cow.

  14. There have been a number of vastly experienced and qualified data analysts who have deep dived into the US election data and have come up with very revealing results. One is Dr Frank.

    ” Post from Dr. Frank’s Telegram:

    Follow the Data with Dr Frank
    The county level analyses that I’ve been posting for several states demonstrates that an algorithm is operating which regulates election outcomes by county to meet a pre-determined final result for each state.

    At first, I was bothered by the fact that I could detect this unnatural behavior in every county that I examined. But then I saw Mike Lindell’s PCAP data, which show that over 3,000 of our 3,142 counties (over 95%) were hacked and tracked during the November 2020 election.

    And since then, about a dozen other groups have confirmed my county level analyses around the country.

    Recently, I was in a meeting at a Secretary of State’s office, and they claimed that my analysis was wrong because they could not re-produce it. I showed them what they were doing wrong, but they still didn’t get it.

    Their logic is: “Because we can’t do what you [and others] can, you must be wrong.”

      7 mins 05 secs. :

      The comments 10,000+? on her video clip seem pretty negative.
      Like :-
      “You are out of touch with New Zealand and are far too interested in your own agenda.”
      “…. more worried about your global reputation than helping your own ie gumboot Friday ….”
      “Farmers have a protest and she doesn’t even mention or thank them or let them know that they were even heard #byebyejacinda

      The likes on some of those querying comments about Ardern also run at a high number.

      Seems to have overwhelmed the well wisher bot system 🙂

    • I can’t read it all Saggy, with it being behind a paywall but I can guess what the guy is saying …there can be a upside to MMP because it should stop a party / Govt who has full control getting out of hand. While I can see the point, I think there is also a flip side and that is if there is a responsible, talented party in Govt a lot could be achieved without having “tail wagging the dog” party distracting it.
      This why I continue to harp on about the benefits of the supplementary member voting system as gives the best of both worlds. It allows for smaller party contributions but avoids tail wagging the dog issues.

      • Oh, Sorry Ross. Didn’t realise that one was pay-walled. Here it is:

        I’ve never been a fan of MMP. I don’t like the unique feature of MMP governments where the “tail wags the dog”. In other words, where the minor party in the relationship is disproportionately influential in what does and doesn’t get done.

        I also don’t like the fact that MMP governments get away with making promises that they don’t keep. In failing to live up to their own pre-election expectations they simply blame their minor coalition partner or the coalition agreement as the reason for their failure to deliver.

        So, I have tended to prefer the situation where a majority government is able to get on with the job, without excuses or distraction.

        Prior to last year’s election, our government was a classic MMP government. And the NZ First/Green tail wagged the dog to such an extent that New Zealanders voted in a majority government for the first time in our post MMP history.

        The outcome has been such that I have changed my tune. I am now longing for an MMP government. A government where there are checks and balances. One where there are “handbrakes” on extreme ideas. A government where proper consultation and reflection is enabled.

        We have now had a majority government for 10 months. It seems like a lot of things are changing in a very short amount of time. Anyone who doubts this Government’s ability to get things done, should look more closely. There’s a lot being done. But they’re not building houses or roads or hospitals or the other things we would expect. They’re building a new social fabric.

        Like many Kiwis, I’ve lived in the UK and Australia, as well as my home here in New Zealand. So, I’ve always lived in a democracy and I’ve tended to take that for granted. I’ve visited dictatorships and communist countries, but I never felt completely comfortable in those environments.

        The beauty of a democracy is that you get to vote for public officers. The make-up of governments and councils is a function of what the majority of the people want. Before voting, the people are invited to hear what the various players might want to do upon their election. This makes voters informed.

        But things have changed. We didn’t hear about these plans before the last election and we now know that some information was withheld from the voting public. As a result, we voted blind and we now find ourselves in the middle of what may one day be termed a social experiment. At the core of that experiment is a curb on our freedoms, the extent of which, despite it happening right in front of us, will one day take us by surprise.

        As a result, our society is changing at a rapid rate. Many of the changes represent major social change in this country, and they’re being made under the cloak of “blaming Covid”. Some are justified. Many are not.

        We now live in a world of lockdowns, mask-wearing and social distancing. You can argue that these impositions on our freedoms were necessary at the height of the Covid scare. However, as an island nation, a long way away, with low population density our continued anxiety is probably unnecessary. In the last twelve months, the few cases we have had have failed to be as contagious as feared. One would imagine that some of those freedoms could return.

        Other associated constraints seem even less necessary. The reluctance to lift the bans on overseas students will permanently impact our universities and what was once a core part of their income stream. The brand position we once had in this sector will be almost impossible to recover.

        We’ve also put a stop to the regular arrival of badly needed overseas workers. People whom, like it or not, we have come to rely on. There is a tendency to think this affects mainly construction workers and hospitality staff. But if you do the rounds of a hospital, a school staff room or even our police, you will notice that there are accents. Plenty of them. All needed. All welcome, until now.

        Our business people need to travel overseas to build relationships and to grow our export markets. While they can, in theory, leave the country, the draconian processes around returning to New Zealand make it almost unfathomable to step outside our shores.

        And then there are the attacks on our freedoms that have nothing to do with Covid, but enable a socially focused government to push things through while the people are distracted.

        When our former prime minister, John Key, wanted to change the flag, he demonstrated respect for the voting electorate by opening up the conversation, creating a process and taking the decision to a national referendum so the people could decide. By comparison, there seems to be a campaign to change the name of our country without any such consultation.

        Even official Government documents now refer to our country by another name. Both the He Puapua report on the rights of indigenous peoples, and the recent Climate Change Commission report refer to New Zealand as Aotearoa.

        Our newsreaders are now forced to present parts of their bulletins in te reo Maori. People working in Councils and Government departments are instructed to ensure that their correspondence uses greetings and sign-offs in te reo also. Failure to do so can result in written warnings and whatever else may follow.

        The Government has announced that Maori owned businesses will get special treatment in pitching for government work. And of course, the He Puapua report was already in the Government’s hands prior to the last election, but was not made public until well after the people had voted.

        Many of these changes are worthy of extensive consultation as a minimum and in some cases further national referenda would be appropriate.

        Of course, governments have manipulated the people into behaving in a certain way for decades. We’ve been taxed and incentivised to do certain things at certain times.

        Previous generations were encouraged to buy life insurance, send children to private schools and make donations to worthy causes. Such manipulation was usually delivered via the tax system.

        But today’s society is seeing a new level of manipulation. We have recently been told how our investment properties will be treated and what vehicles we should be considering purchasing. Ratepayers, who have spent decades investing in and building substantial water management assets are being told that those assets will be seized by Government.

        Schoolteacher training has been rewritten to include reference to white privilege and local councils are creating Maori wards. No consultation, no referendums, no democratic decisions.

        In isolation, each of these changes seems moderate. However, when you put them all together, it starts to sound like a major transformation in a very short amount of time. And it doesn’t feel unintentional.

        It feels like the New Zealand we once had, just a few short years ago, is now under siege. Not from war makers. But from lawmakers. We need a strong media and a stronger opposition to halt the progress of the change-masters. Both have been ineffective to date.

        And when the next opportunity comes, we will most certainly need to use whatever voice we have left. Democracy is, after all, the voice of the people.

            • I dont agree with him about bringing in huge numbers of students.
              It has allowed the left institutions to turn it in to a money making scheme ,rather than a high standard of education.Also it is an avenue for rorts and residency from people we don’t need.
              FPP for me.
              You could go down to to electorate office and tell your MP what you really thought.
              MMP enables the left.

  18. It was one howl of a protest all right. Personally, I have never seen anything like it before in Whangarei – not just the sheer number of vehicles taking part, but the response from the people who lined the streets to support the convoy.
    And that level of support was replicated across the nation in each of the 51 towns and cities taking part.
    The mood of discontent is something politicians cannot ignore

    https://scontent.fakl3-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.6435-9/202081708_278592797399989_6514389709601155486_n.jpg?_nc_cat=111&ccb=1-3&_nc_sid=730e14&_nc_ohc=SLD73h2IBJUAX-FYd6U&_nc_ht=scontent.fakl3-1.fna&oh=ead8d1b91ef648051aaffc6c9f767a76&oe=60F678AE

    But there’s another great thing to come out of today’s rally. It has given people like Sally hope:
    “It is just so emotional seeing all the pics come in from the centres from the Howl of a Protest. Whangarei was massive. The video showed just how many vehicles were going to be on the road. Many times Whangarei has been slammed for being a ‘good for nothing shithole’. Well, you know what to those people, we are totally against the government on this and our passion showed today. We support the country and we are strong. Northland will always be there when you need us

    • Good luck in your search for an honest politician. Somehow I’m reminded of this story of the philosopher Diogenes the Cynic who wandered Ancient Greece over 2300 years ago:

      “Diogenes dusted off his lamp and set out once again, this time looking for an honest lawyer. After a few months of this, a friend asked him how he was doing. “Not too bad,” said Diogenes, “I still have my lamp.”

  19. Here’s What Happened At Cyber Polygon… And You’re Not Going To Like It
    From Zerohedge
    Authored by Jeff Thompson via The Organic Prepper blog.

    Why is this? In short, because past simulations ended up becoming a reality. Could the Cyber Polygon simulation become a reality?

    If One Can Shut Down All Alternative Viewpoints, One Can Become the Sole Provider of “Truth”

    “If all the sources of current information are effectively under one single control, it is no longer a question of merely persuading the people of this or that. The skillful propagandist then has the power to mold their minds in any direction he chooses, and even the most intelligent and independent people cannot entirely escape that influence if they are long isolated from all other sources of information.”

  20. Sellouts.

    Wonder why Greece is banning unvaccinated people from society?

    Perhaps it’s because they are about to receive 4.7 billion Euros. Greece will also get 31 billion euros in subsidies and loans from a “post pandemic fund”. Greece made a deal with the devil and then right after started punishing their citizens for not wanting a poisonous experimental vaccine.

  21. What the actual fuck is this?
    The Guardian
    No ‘return to normal’ expected in post-pandemic New Zealand – and locals say that’s fine.

    As countries look for a post-pandemic pathway back to “normal”, New Zealand is making no promises – and its population seems startlingly happy with that.

    Around the world, some governments are hitting full throttle with rhetoric about a “return to normal” and the freedoms of a pre-pandemic world. New Zealand’s approach has been cautious by contrast. The government has made no assurances of a return to normal anytime soon, announced no multi-step “pathway out”, and put forward no timeline for re-opening borders even to vaccinated travellers.

    For the population, that messaging seems to have sunk in: the vast majority of New Zealanders – 91% – do not expect life to return to normal, even once they are vaccinated.

    • Thanks Ross12 and brings a good summation of where the system is “herding” or supposedly shepherding us to a concept of “kindness” of supposed “wellbeing”.
      Among many points of that 7 minutes video,

      I see that a part is of “allow major infrastructure to crumble”.
      “Deprive people of their earning power by imposing taxes, based on fabricated justifications (war, climate change).
      Subvert ‘free market’ to set up oligarchic system – nobody rises in *key* industries unless allowed.
      Financial manipulations to further entrench classes/ cement hierarchic divide top vs bottom. …… ”

      It seems interesting as it shows it is not a government by the people, for the people, but a total disconnect, to another usurping ideology that has become cultish,
      Secret, hidden, agenda, no escape, but you will love it

      Like other times when we wonder where do these decisions come from, what are they based on, but hidden in there is that drive of pushing a “Discourse Consensus” on so many parts of our lives.

      Slowly some are starting to understand how this perverseness is setting up to take control.

  22. Just reading an article on Off Guardian about fake news stories and videos in particular, to help ramp up the Covid BS. One of the people commenting on the article had this to say :

    ” Its like the Christchurch Linwood Islamic Centre ‘after attack’ iPhone video where; among other lazy mistakes; the dead guy in a teal ski jacket – first seen sitting on floor taking instruction from one of the perception managers – lies down…twitches a couple of times to get comfortably ‘dead’ then one minute later gets up and wanders off for a cuppa tea. (Prosecution didn’t use the clip in their summary of ‘fucts’.) ”

    Anyone heard of this before ?

  23. Donald J Trump@realdonaldtrump

    Fox News and other media outlets incorrectly side with the outdated and terrible Maricopa County Election Board to report no fraud found in the Presidential Election. They spew the gross misinformation purposefully put out by the county and the Associated Press, and IGNORE the very important Arizona Senate’s hearing yesterday, which showed 168,000 fraudulent ballots printed on illegal paper (unofficial ballots), 74,000 mail in ballots received that were never mailed (magically appearing ballots), 11,000 voters were added to the voter rolls AFTER the election and still voted, all the access logs to the machines were wiped, and the election server was hacked during the election. They sided with the County and not the brave Arizona Senate who is fighting for the people of Arizona. The same anchor at the desk the night Fox called Arizona for Joe Biden now wants you to believe there was no fraud. The anchor was Bret Baier. Thankfully, Arizona has strong State Senators willing to fight for the truth. Senator Wendy Rogers says “I have heard enough. It’s time to decertify this election.” Senator Kelly Townsend said the fraud was so bad “I want to see indictments.” Senator Sonny Borrelli says “I’ve seen enough evidence to challenge the validity of the certification of the Maricopa County Election results.” Arizona shows Fraud and Voting Irregularities many times more than would be needed to change the outcome of the Election.

    The farmers’ protest has already disappeared from the NZ news cycle. Why does this happen, and what is behind it? Yes, the media are protecting their main benefactor, but there is more to it than that. What Jacinda and her media acolytes are doing is based on an old theory, one she learnt about during her years at Socialist International. More people should know about that theory and how she is applying it in NZ and fooling a large sector of voters.

  25. Tiktok star predicts case numbers. So, if you’re not enjoying the Herald Premium Articles with your $55,000,00 – the gist is this.

    Some random chap on TikTok has predicted the new case numbers in NSW for the last 4 days and does so just before the official press conference. He says he uses math to calculate what they will be, but people believe he has a source in the health system.

    I wonder if he hasn’t found the random number seed they started with and is just hitting rand() every day to get the same number they’re using. Or maybe he’s found the formula they use to calculate what new case numbers should be and just repeats it.

    • This was covered in Daily Mail 3 days ago.
      He appears to have an inside contact and the numbers are compiled for the day for 8 pm and circulated at 9pm
      Announced the next morning.
      He has a source.

      He is just frigging with the official numbers and knows them but giving some wrong numbers to throw them off the scent.
      From the citizen journalists in the comments section.
      Unlike NZ bollocks pretending to be media, and failing.

  26. Received this. Do it, its easy, and then share far and wide.

    https://www.freespeechsubmission.com/

    Came with this blurb Dear XXXXXX,

    As promised: we’ve made it easy for Kiwis to have their say

    The Government has asked for public feedback on its so-called ‘hate speech’ laws. So that’s exactly what we’re encouraging New Zealanders to give them. Thanks to the contributions of our financial supporters and volunteers, we’ve just launched FreeSpeechSubmission.com.

    Have your say by making a submission to the Ministry of Justice on the proposed hate speech laws.

    If you have five minutes, file a submission with the Ministry of Justice to say ‘No’ to the anti-speech laws. As you’ll see, we’ve made it easy with an online tool for you to select what you want to include in your submission.

    Select any or all of our preprepared paragraphs, or draft your own response. The key thing is we don’t sit in silence while free speech is eroded.

    >> Create your submission <<
    If the Minister of Justice and Prime Minister couldn’t even tell us how far these changes would go, how are you and I able to tell? It is irresponsible of the Government to even start this process without a better understanding of what it will achieve.

    Make sure your voice is heard, so we don’t end up with bad law that hurts kiwis.

    Thanks again for your support.

    Michigan Senate Repeals Emergency Powers Law, Whitmer Unable to Veto

    Michigan’s Senate on Thursday approved a petition that repeals Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s emergency powers, with another approval expected by the state’s lower chamber.

    Whitmer, a Democrat, cannot veto the petition.

    The Michigan Senate’s 20-15 vote came two days after the Board of State Canvassers certified the petition, which was started by a group called Unlock Michigan that gathered over 340,000 signatures.

    Farmers Get Creative as Profits from Soaring Beef Prices Fail to Trickle Down

    STEINAUER, Neb.—It would be hard for Americans to miss that taking the family out for a steak dinner has become more and more of a luxury.

    Wholesale price of beef was up some 40 percent in May, compared to the average in 2019, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) data. Supermarkets and restauranteurs have partly absorbed the price increase and partly passed it on to customers.

    U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy issued an advisory on Thursday about health misinformation focused heavily on misinformation regarding the coronavirus pandemic.

    The surgeon general’s report out Thursday was followed by an announcement from the Rockefeller Foundation that it will grant $13.5 million in funding to projects aimed at building public trust in vaccines by countering inaccurate information online. The projects that will receive the grant money will be announced by the end of 2021, the organization said.

  32. Truck convoy chokes Sydney’s roads after NSW shuts down construction industry

    Dozens of truck drivers drove in a convoy with horns blaring across Sydney for nearly two hours on Saturday afternoon to protest the NSW government’s decision to close the construction industry for two weeks as part of a COVID-19 lockdown.
    The protest, which organisers claimed had more than 100 trucks, started at the M2 near Baulkham Hills at 3pm and drove over the Sydney Harbour Bridge before finishing on the Anzac Bridge close to 5pm, choking arterial roads.
