  1. Australian protests in Melbourne
    Edit, note just checked & found that the first 3 video links go to videopress – wordpress, and do not link up. – The 3 Vids in the article work.

    A news article, showing the scene of the break through of police lines, from a few stories.
    https://videopress.com/f21e11c7-b7f7-4f82-9553-236dafc7aa53
    34 secs : AUGUST 21, 2021

    Seems to be the same scene, shot from the ground.

    11 secs : AUGUST 21, 2021

    This seems to be the build up before the break through in Melbourne and the break through police ranks in Melbourne.
    It shows the escalation by the police and it is reported they did use it.
    So when & what will be then next step in police escalation?

    Australia Fights Back – Pepper spray, guns, and rubber bullets used by the Police; this isn’t about health, it’s about control

    • Watching the police attack the protesters it seems obvious that the Australian totalitarians have decided that by just making gathering outdoors ‘illegal’ they can get away with anything. And Ardern has learned from watching them and she’s moving in the same direction; at this stage by issuing warnings dressed up as news items in the media and arresting people who dare to gather, even in small groups.

      We are going to need backup. Just protesting isn’t going to be enough and it’s time to start looking outside the square.

      I would suggest cyberattacks on TVNZ and RNZ for a start, followed by waves of cyber warfare on non-productive government agencies (conservation, human rights, whakkaora Maori supremacy, AT etc).

      Imagine the impact if the sheeple turned on the TV ‘news’ and found a blank screen with the message “This station has been removed for distributing lies and propaganda”!!!

      The thing is, in previous eras a huge street demonstration would become news and at least the demonstrators would achieve a level of awareness for their cause. But now it’s all hidden out of sight by a totalitarian government that literally controls what the people are allowed to see and hear.

      It’s time to get serious. Let’s show the world what bit of good old kiwi ingenuity can achieve.

      Note: No I’m not suggesting violence and in no way do I want to promote people turning against each other. What I’m suggesting is that we should find creative ways to fight back against the totalitarians who are attacking us the people.

  2. Joe piss pants Biden has sent a message to Americans stuck in side Ragheadstan “don’t try to escape “.
    Apparently tomorrow a follow up message will say ” you’ve only got to wait a couple of months and Ragheadstan will be safer than downtown USA “.
    Now ISIS is threatening American passport holders in Ragheadstan, there’s going to be blood on the streets before this piss pants Biden fuck up is finished.

    Today, the Herald leads with “Delta Danger.”
    Soon, it will be “Delta Danger Death.”

  4. When will I get a break ? , I did a bit of shopping and noticed the diced chicken was 2 for $20.00 so of course I bought a couple, my mistake was going home and bragging to the Mrs about what a smart shopper I was becoming .
    After 5 minutes watching TV with a beer the Mrs says hey superman come out here I’ve got something to show you, FFS I’d misread the label ,it was 3 for 20.00 and I’d paid full price at 10.00 each, ffuuucckk. I’ll never live it down..

    Perfect super spreader situations, cindy is dripping wet again at the potential this has.

    I rekon judith and david need to pressure the hell out of cindy to get off the podium and get her health ministers deal with it. Take away the only thing she cares about, theres no need for her to be at a podium parroting what shes been told she should be running a fucking country! Not stopping it from running.

      Except that they, in obedience with ‘Orders from the Board-room globalists’ globalists in charge of the Nats, won’t – they value the trough too much to step out of line.

        Tbh i rekon half if not all the cases are fabricated to cause panic, seems a lil too perfect of scenarios esp the mitre 10 and school ball but perfect enough to cause mass fear/hysteria.

        Ppl are sitting at home feeling totally fine yet shitting themselves cos some govt mung txted them to tell them theyve got covid… scammed bigly

        • I am just wondering if any of you know anyone that actually has this virus? I do know people who have a cold at the moment, but no one with the virus at all, and no one I know has said they know anyone either. How do we know that there is anyone that has it at all? The whole thing may be made up? People with respiratory illness that have to be hospitalised may have something else but it fits the narative???? Just asking for myself actually.

          • Lizziep, I know two people with RSV that tested negative for covid. And all the people I know who rushed off for covid tests and have heard back are all negatives too.

            I keep wondering if this all fiction too. We had the media build up for the past few weeks about “if we find one case we will lock you down.” and the… lo and behold, the find one case and lock us down. Little bit too co-incidental. Especially it turning up the same week as the numerous planned protests were scheduled.

          Being generally mild but easily transmissible is the ultimate goal.

        • I’d rather watch him every day at 1 pm that DL and co (which I don’t ever watch). Thanks for sharing the link, rightoverlabour.

          Why would anyone rush to take an investigative vaccine for last year’s virus?
          Why are we not screening for antibodies first (apart from the fact NZ has been a hermit nation with elimination, so not allowed natural immunity and antibodies a chance)?

          In my book, it is much better to focus on hope, early treatment and immune wellness.

          But this doesn’t suit the psychological warfare that we are being subject to and which too many people are succumbing to for the sake of their jobs and being able to sleep at night knowing that DL has saved them yet again.

          It’s going to be a very different story in the coming years for the lab rats.

    • “Perfect super spreader situations, Cindy is dripping wet again at the potential this has.”

      Mmmmmnnnnnnmnm. Not sure about that!

      Methinks this is her Waterloo.

      It was baby-easy to frighten the sheep and lock them in the barn when images were coming in from China of people dropping dead on the streets, and images from Italy of devastated towns and hospitals, overwhelmed facilities in New York, then the dramas in Britain. INDIA!!!

      WE DON’T WANT THAT HERE!!!!

      Well, folks, things haven’t changed ie the virus will do what the viruses do despite the best efforts of lowly man and his damned vanity.

      The world has changed and history has turned another page. The images coming in from overseas are of a return to normality with the exception of Australia and a few outliers. IN ALL THESE CASES THE PROBLEM IS ENTIRELY POLITICAL.

      The rest of the world is now laughing at us. We and Australia. The message is ‘you have to live with Delta’ and if you delude yourself that governments and cops CAN defeat a virus YOU WILL BE OVERRUN ANYWAY. The message is clear: YOU HAVE TO LEARN TO LIVE WITH DELTA.

      The world wide media are now mocking their former idol Jacinda. She has served her purpose now. From hero to zero. Queen Jacinda Ardern Canute was seen to be overwhelmed by the waves. That sells advertising space!!! lol

      The world will have fun watching deluded Aussies and Kiwis build sand castles to hold back the tide. As the waters rise the kids will have a lot of fun with buckets of sand to resist. But eventually the inevitable happens and the hopelessness of the situation is obvious and the kids run off and play on the swings instead.

      Anyone for a Man-Made Global Warming Panic???

    • When the American hand goes into Afghanistan, the Taliban (ethnic Pashtuns whose homeland is bisected by the British-drawn Afghanistan/Pakistan border) simply go and stay with their relies in Pakistan. As soon as the Americans leave, the Pashtuns (Taliban) come home.

      If Afghanistan were Auckland, it would be like the Americans trying to drive the Chinese out of old Howick central (when the Chinese stronghold is in Botany). As soon as the Americans leave, the Chinese come back in from Meadowlands and life returns to “normal.”

      The Americans would have had to bomb Pakistan to bring the Pashtuns to heel, and that was not going to happen.

      You do know that China has a border (albeit a narrow one) with Afghanistan. Useful, that.

        So the P{aki’s and the Pushtans will soon learn what they are all about. Just ask the Tibetans ot the Taiwanese or even those from Hoing Kong.

        That will bring them head to head with the Saudi’s who funded the Pushtans. And then you have the Iraq’s.
        Will be fun to watch.

      • O-Sen says
        The Americans would have had to bomb Pakistan to bring the Pashtuns to heel,
        What planet are you on O-Sen?

        Yanks have been bombing the shit out of Pakistan for the last 20 years.
        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_drone_strikes_in_Pakistan
        just look at the near daily list of ‘recorded’ illegal bombings.

        or
        https://watson.brown.edu/costsofwar/costs/human/civilians/pakistani

        …The U.S. began its semi-covert campaign of drone strikes in 2004 to kill Al Qaeda and Taliban forces based in Northern Pakistan. The strikes are obscured by secrecy and are of questionable legality. There is also a debate about who and how many have been killed in the strikes. According to the highest estimates, these strikes have killed thousands of people.

        Approximately 56,661 Pakistanis – civilians and opposition fighters – have been killed since 2001. Of these, about 23,300 are civilians.

        Key Findings
        -A major war, with U.S. support and participation, has been ongoing in Pakistan.
        -Some suicide bombings in Pakistan are carried out in direct retaliation to U.S. drone strikes in the region.
        -U.S. drone strikes may have killed as thousands of people, most of them civilians, and have been deeply unpopular in Pakistan.

        So
        ‘Approximately 56,661 Pakistanis’
        More than US soldiers killed in the American War of Aggression in Vietnam 1954 to 1975.

        And as Kea has pointed out here regularly, the African warlord, B Hussein Obummer, increased the intensity .

    Thousands of businesses forced to close have already applied for Government support with some begging to be able to reopen.

    Butcheries, bakeries and greengrocers can’t open at alert level 4 but say they should be able to, to ease pressure on supermarkets.

    “It’s gonna hurt and it’s gonna be a roll-on effect. Taxes due next week, GST’s due, and we’ve got no cash flow,” the Aussie Butcher New Lynn owner says.

  8. This whole lockdown is good for building Big Government and Big Corporations. It’s very hard on small businesses and the self-employed. (Look at how green grocers and butchers are faring against the Big Two supermarket chains in NZ.)
    It’s almost like there’s a consortium among the Big Boys, to suppress the little innovators. Not just in this country, but overseas as well.

    When Big Business gets very cosy with Big Government, bad things can happen.

          Serious question wiseowl, what’s this about AGAIN ? Why did you stop last time ?

          I support a local fruit/vege market in Wellington for exactly the reason you imply ….the guys from Otaki/Levin who come down were screwed for years by the big guys and now they sell cheaper than the big guys but must make more profit for themselves.
          When we first came to Wellington in the 80s the rules did not allow HB fruit to bought down here to sell at the markets (there was one small one in Tory St.) but for some reason there was one exception a guy by the name of Hodgekins (sp ?)

      • And according to Cindy:
        [1] Who needs farmers when you can buy produce from supermarkets:
        [2] Who needs fishing companies when you can buy fish from a fish and chip shop?
        [3] Who needs elections when you can have a government that knows what the people want?

        Socialist, espousing his dream: “I believe in freedom of the people, which is what socialism brings. Everyone working together, caring and sharing. There will be no discrimination, so brain surgeons and street sweepers will be on the same wage. Capitalists are naturally greedy and start wars. We won’t have wars, or bloodshed. A socialist country will be a paradise, a utopia.”

        Capitalist: “So why then are you supporting Marxist revolutions which involves bloodshed, locking up of citizens, and firing squads for those who disagree?”

        Socialist: “As I said, I actually believe in no wars, no bloodshed. Some people however are ignorant and don’t “get” the socialist utopia. So those idiots have to be forced to see the truth, at the point of a gun. And those capitalists who want to greedily hang on to their worldly possessions and wealth, instead of sharing it for the greater good, will need to be re-educated or if they won’t change, be disposed of.”

        Capitalist: “But by killing, imprisonment and disposing, you are doing the very things you are opposed to.”

        Socialist: “The ends justify the means.”

        Some time later……

        Communist: “Thank you Mr Socialist, for your efforts in making it possible for communism and fascism to be established in your country.”

        Socialist: “But hang on, you are rounding up all my fellow socialists, and sending them to the firing squads. Just like Russia did in Kabul in 1979. We are your friends.”

        Communist: “You have been a very useful idiot. But now, we are taking over. You won’t like life under communism / fascism, so your type will resist as much as the capitalists, perhaps even more so. You have done your bit and are no longer needed.”

        Socialist: “But, but, but….. you conned us.”

        Communist: “The ends justify the means.”

      How much beuracracy has been built around covid?
      Contact tracers, testing clinics etc etc

      My guess is 10s of thousands of jobs rely on covid scam continuing, if it was to poof and disapear overnight where will they go what will they do???
      Have our unemployment numbers just been fudged by taking them off a winz govt paycheck and putting them on a covid govt paycheck?

      As for small business its hard enough to survive without covid and lockdowns, as you suggest theyll just get swallowed up or squashed by the big guys that get govt preferential treatment and handouts.
      A few big businesses are easier for a govt to control then multiple smaller independant ones. Corporations are faceless and seem to have quite a degree of immunity and lack accountability.

    • As the supermarkets have been massively advantaged by having their competitors closed we should reward theirgood fortune with a windfall tax say 5% of turnover (to stop creative accounting) the extra revenue would fund something really valuable like paying the nurses the $4000 promised previous pay round and still unpaid. I would even set aside $1 towards a cycle bridge.

  9. I expect some of you will have received the e mail from Judith Collins entitled Stay Safe New Zealand.
    I have replied as follows – for all the good it will do but it did make me feel a little better temporarily at least.

    Dear Judith,

    Thank you for your e mail. Sadly I find it disappointing and rather pathetic and I am not at all reassured that you have any idea what you and the rest of the muppets in the Beehive are doing.

    I am 72 and with a weak heart I will quite likely die if I contract covid and am not able to immediately take Hydroxychloroquine or Ivermectin to combat the symptoms. The “vaccine” presents an even greater danger to me than the virus since I am on medication to prevent blood clots which the “vaccine” produces as one of its major side effects so, no, I will not be getting jabbed.

    That said it is time to face the fact that covid is now endemic in New Zealand. All Ardern did with her stupid, ill advised “zero covid” nonsense was to delay the inevitable and at what enormous cost! Don’t you people pay any attention to what is going on overseas? How did you select such incompetent advisors, the mind boggles.

    It seems highly likely now that the “vaccine” you all seem so obsessed with is actually helping to spread the virus see Israel, Gibraltar and Iceland for details. Meanwhile Sweden is virtually back to normal having treated their citizens like grown ups with a measure of common sense unlike our idiot PM doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

    How many NZ MPs have shares in Big Pharma companies, what else can explain the promotion of this proven dangerous experimental biological agent which is not even very effective (requiring a booster already we are told) and is killing and injuring so many people around the world?

    There are therapeutic drugs, Ivermectin and HCQ, cheap and with long safety records, that have been proven very effective in treating covid as long as they are given at the first sign of symptoms. Why the ban on even discussing these helpful drugs and the disgraceful victimization of any doctors brave enough to speak out in their favour? Do you realize how shameful this behaviour seems to those of us who know what the Nuremburg trials were all about?

    For God’s sake Judith grow a spine and show some leadership and start pushing the government to authorize the sale of these two drugs over the counter (as they are in many countries) alongside the Panadol and the fake “pandemic” in New Zealand will be over in no time. We should also stop with this stupid mass testing which has been shown worldwide to be so inaccurate as to be virtually useless and whose sole purpose is to incite fear in the ignorant who do not have the wit to do their own research.

    We really cannot afford to let Ardern do any more damage to our country so stop supporting them and start behaving like the opposition party we so desperately need.

    • Very good letter Alice.

      Just why are all the parties in New Zealand, going along with no first and timely early treatments?

      For arguments sake to go along with testing for now.
      Use that for getting early safe cheap treatment.

      If one is tested supposedly positive, asymptomatic or symptomatic, then I am sure many would grab those cheap prophylactic treatments.
      If they do get some symptoms then whatever else a Doctor would further prescribe early treatment with the changed protocols.
      At this stage this should be our main goal, and I figure everyone should be able to agree with this, one way or the other, maybe.

      I am sort of slicing it a bit more thinly, just for arguments sake, to focus on the protocols as expounded by McCullough, Zelenko.
      There should be no disagreement about this, and if so, why not?
      Many of the general public, I would think agree with this.

    • Wonderful email Alice. You inspired me to reply to Judith as well. Here is what I said:

      Dear Judith,

      Thank you for your email. I am motivated to reply as I am disappointed with the division caused by the current path Labour is on with its handling of the pandemic. They have no idea what they are doing. People are scared of the direction NZ is headed and expect more coercion to ramp up their demand for us to take the jab (it’s not a vaccine). I have already been told by a medical specialist that it is safe because the MOH says so. I was exceedingly disappointed in the pressure I felt as I manage my illness well and know my own body. The clot shot would have a detrimental affect on my system. There are many potential side effects of the clot shot which are not being aired by Ms Ardern or Bloomfield. Their official line is the vaccine is safe. It is not. I will not be getting jabbed.

      Sending out headings to the voters with platitudes such as “Stay safe New Zealand” is all very well but we need help! I am requesting that you as leader of the National Party and opposition take up the charge to make the proven prophylactics Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine to be made available over the counter to the New Zealand public. We need “Crusher” to stand up. We need a hero!

      Ivermectin and HCQ are both safe with decades of proven data and effective against Covid, they are cheap and are in use in India, Africa and other countries who have kept Covid illness and deaths to a minimum with their use in their countries.

      I include an article by Dr Peter McCulloch, Texas cardiologist with impeccable qualifications

      • Hear, hear, wg. 🙂

        First and early treatments after a supposed positive test, reduces hospitalization, the amount of time, and time reduced if ICU is needed.
        The price of that early cheap treatment, is priceless.

        All un-vaccinated would support this, and also would the vaccinated, once they find out they can still catch, transmit, and suffer also from Covid.

      • A major impediment to ones who wear glasses that become all fogged up.
        Nearly drove my trolley into and or clipped, a display of whatever, the other day whilst in the supermarket. 🙁

        The urges to cough and sneeze, triggered by a nappy, also does not help, and should just let rip for the good of my health.
        In profusely apologizing, be sure to apologize, for what may escape, as silent & violent, from the unmasked anal passage, to their nasal passage.

        If they do not notice the smell, be a bit more apprehensive, as that is symptom of perhaps they may be coming down with Covid, or early stage Alzheimers.

    While agreeing with your sentiments, I find it strange that of the aforementioned ‘Big Boys’, ‘The Warehouse’ one of the biggest store-chains in NZ (and with stores that sell GROCERIES, albeit of a limited-range) is NOT allowed to trade at present, yet supermarkets are ‘permitted’ to do so.

    Perhaps it came down to ‘Influence’ and ‘Donations’; the more you pay, the more you get?

    Given the way the present administration has acted in the past, this may not be such a far-fetched possibility…

      As in the first lock down, yes they could open & rope off, then were stopped!
      There was some good essential grocery items, easily able to be roped off, and more space.
      Ware house would have easily have made much more space available for the items that were allowed to be sold.

      They could also have easily taken up some of the stocks that the vege & fruit shops, for healthy eating. 🙂

          Further to that, the ware house could easily have increased chiller space to help the ​small butchers, first by emptying those cold fizzy drinks chillers. 🙂
          Two birds with one stone, a way of creating more competition , in a much needed time with a different supply line.
          Not that I trust the Ware house but it was an opportunity that was too good to miss, and worth a try.

          Not that I want the small business’s to be merged out into Warehouse, but as a tiding over mechanism, worth a shot.

          It would seem to set a cat among those duopoly pigeons, at no cost to the taxpayer.
          A win/win, and that would be too many wins for this Labour government.

      • A belief in total regulation, and minute control, that is well on the way to a “command economy”.
        It will cost a fortune, and set up inflation, with their versions of “kindly” wage controls like minimum, parity, equality, gendered, equity, inclusive, quotas etc..
        The. controls that then along the same lines create the call for price/profit controls, with no regard to the mounting shortages, etc…

      I am a big fan of Castle Doctrine (except for apartment blocks where all the units look the same and some drunken homeowner will inevitably try to force open the door of the unit below his by mistake).

      When you find young men of fighting age on your premises in the dead of night, you have to assume the worst. Better to stand before 12 of your peers than be carried out by 6 of them.

  11. Morning Troopers,

    LMFAO. Looks like we’re being softened up the the walk-back of the elimination strategy. FS they’re giving up faster then a troop of cheese-eating surrender monkeys.

    Elimination is still the game plan at the moment, but the Delta variant asks some “big questions about the long-term future of what our plans are”, Covid-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins says.

  12. From the Herald:
    “Tomorrow the Prime Minister will call Cabinet together to make a decision on whether to extend the level 4 lockdown across the country, and in particular in Auckland. It is now clear the decision will not be one of whether, but for how long. New Zealanders should brace themselves for the likelihood it will be a month to six weeks.”

    Given what has happened in the last 72 hours, how long do you think the lockdown extension will be?
    I think that 4 weeks is plausible. They may try to soften the blow by saying it will be 2 weeks (but then extending it for a further 2 weeks).

    What do you think will happen?

        • Victoria, for example, are stay at home except for:

          * Essential shopping, 1 person only per household, travel no more than 5km and no more than once per day.
          * Exercise, restricted to maximum of 2 people together from one bubble for no more than 1 hour and no more than 5km from your home.
          * Medical care.
          * Permitted work, which is very similar to how our working scheme functions.

          They also have:
          * Full curfew from 9pm to 5am.
          * Facemasks.
          * Mandatory QR code check-in.

          The primary difference seems to be they do allow some click-and-collect type operation that we do not. New South Wales is very similar in their rules, including the curfews, etc.

          It reads as more restrictive than our lockdown. NSW has been in lockdown since the last week of June. Victoria has only been in lockdown since the 5th of August.

    Open Letter to the Unvaccinated
    You are not alone! As of 28 July 2021, 29% of Canadians have not received a COVID-19 vaccine, and an additional 14% have received one shot. In the US and in the European Union, less than half the population is fully vaccinated, and even in Israel, the “world’s lab” according to Pfizer, one third of people remain completely unvaccinated. Politicians and the media have taken a uniform view, scapegoating the unvaccinated for the troubles that have ensued after eighteen months of fearmongering and lockdowns. It’s time to set the record straight.

    Consider how perverse is this scenario: governments, big pharma, and media deceive people into receiving a dangerous experimental injection for an essentially non-fatal cold; and these people will now have severe and even fatal experiences with future colds. That is what happened to the lab animals; and is why coronavirus vaccines were abandoned.

    Similar antibody-dependent enhancement of disease has been seen in experimentation with RSV vaccines in children with fatal results. https://beforeitsnews.com/agenda-21/2021/01/professor-dolores-cahill-why-people-will-start-dying-a-few-months-after-the-first-mrna-vaccination-2811.html
    Please be cautioned that this will mean people who were injected, may later have severe and even fatal disease during the next cold season. It is especially concerning that this may be mislabeled as “covid-19” and drive even more people towards the so called “vaccines”, rather than drive them away as it should.
    Other terms for antibody dependent enhancement, include: “AD Response, pathologic priming, immune priming, and immune super-priming.”

  17. From one of the links above

    The vaccines are dangerous
    1. Just as smoking could be and was predicted to cause lung cancer based on first principles, all gene-based vaccines can be expected to cause blood clotting and bleeding disorders [33], based on their molecular mechanisms of action. Consistent with this, diseases of this kind have been observed across age groups, leading to temporary vaccine suspensions around the world — The vaccines are not safe.

    2. Contrary to claims that blood disorders post-vaccination are “rare”, many common vaccine side effects (headaches, nausea, vomiting and haematoma-like “rashes” over the body) may indicate thrombosis and other severe abnormalities. Moreover, vaccine-induced diffuse micro-thromboses in the lungs can mimic pneumonia and may be misdiagnosed as COVID-19. Clotting events currently receiving media attention are likely just the “tip of a huge iceberg” [34] — The vaccines are not safe.

    3. Due to immunological priming, risks of clotting, bleeding and other adverse events can be expected to increase with each re-vaccination and each intervening coronavirus exposure. Over time, whether months or years [35], this renders both vaccination and coronaviruses dangerous to young and healthy age groups, for whom without vaccination COVID-19 poses no substantive risk.

    Since vaccine roll-out, COVID-19 incidence has risen in numerous areas with high vaccination rates [36–38]. Furthermore, multiple series of COVID-19 fatalities have occurred shortly after the onset vaccinations in senior homes [39,40]. These cases may have been due not only to antibody-dependent enhancement but also to a general immunosuppressive effect of the vaccines, which is suggested by the increased occurrence of Herpes zoster in certain patients [41]. Immunosuppression may have caused a previously asymptomatic infection to become clinically manifest. Regardless of the exact mechanism responsible for these reported deaths, we must expect that the vaccines will increase rather than decrease lethality of COVID-19 — The vaccines are not safe.

    4. The vaccines are experimental by definition. They will remain in Phase 3 trials until 2023. Recipients are human subjects entitled to free informed consent under Nuremberg and other protections, including the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe’s resolution 2361 [42] and the FDA’s terms of emergency use authorisation [29]. With respect to safety data from Phase 1 and 2 trials, in spite of initially large sample sizes the journal Vaccine reports that, “the vaccination strategy chosen for further development may have only been given to as few as 12 participants” [32]. With such extremely small sample sizes, the journal notes that, “larger Phase 3 studies conducted over longer periods of time will be necessary” to establish safety. The risks that remain to be evaluated in Phase 3 trials into 2023, with entire populations as subjects, include not only thrombosis and bleeding abnormalities, but other autoimmune responses, allergic reactions, unknown tropisms (tissue destinations) of lipid nanoparticles [35], antibody-dependent enhancement [43–46] and the impact of rushed, questionably executed, poorly regulated [47] and reportedly inconsistent manufacturing methods, conferring risks of potentially harmful impurities such as uncontrolled DNA residues [48]. The vaccines are not safe, either for recipients or for those who administer them or authorise their use.

    5. Initial experience might suggest that the adenovirus-derived vaccines (AstraZeneca/Johnson & Johnson) cause graver adverse effects than the mRNA (Pfizer/Moderna) vaccines. However, upon repeated injection, the former will soon induce antibodies against the proteins of the adenovirus vector. These antibodies will then neutralize most of the vaccine virus particles and cause their disposal before they can infect any cells, thereby limiting the intensity of tissue damage.

    In contrast, in the mRNA vaccines, there is no protein antigen for the antibodies to recognize. Thus, regardless of the existing degree of immunity, the vaccine mRNA is going to reach its target — the body cells. These will then express the spike protein and subsequently suffer the full onslaught of the immune system. With the mRNA vaccines, the risk of severe adverse events is virtually guaranteed to increase with every successive injection. In the long term, they are therefore even more dangerous than the vector vaccines. Their apparent preferment over the latter is concerning in the highest degree; these vaccines are not safe.

    • I am sure the pogrom would fall on ordinary people who question the Party, rather than the gangs who actually cause so much social harm.
      On the other hand, if “social harm” means a greater need for bigger government, then you can see the value of gangs to the current regime.

    EYES OPEN PARENTS! 👀
    They’re coming for your kids!! 🤚
    Here is the latest from the Ministry of Health on the consent process for kids as young as 12. Yes, you read that right – TWELVE! 😤
    Your tween may be interested in climbing trees, playing computer games, hanging with their friends, making dancing TikTok videos, riding bikes, baking, dressing up & playing with make up… But did you realise they are now considered mature enough to make complex medical decisions too?
    We want to know HOW a health care provider makes an assessment that a child is competent enough to give their own consent?
    Some kids this age think ice-cream is a healthy option for breakfast or playing Minecraft for 10 hours straight is a perfectly fine choice!
    WHY are parents being locked out of such important decisions? Decisions that have potential life-long consequences? ⁉️
    Is this so the in-school programmes can snare our kids while we aren’t there to protect them?

      But I agree that the fact they are even talking about 12 yrs olds getting the jab, is very dangerous.

      Plans for QR codes to be linked to Australian COVID-19 vaccination statuses | 7NEWS
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wg529lYLOTc
      1 min 48 secs : Aug 20, 2021

      QR codes could be linked to your COVID-19 vaccination status so that businesses can see who they let in, and contract tracers can find people if there’s an outbreak. It’s part of a raft of changes being discussed that will allow states to ease restrictions.
      Even so those contact tracers will then find you when you QR.

      It seems only “when”, the next step is to have it linked to your bank account for a start to track where you are spending, under the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering Financing of Terrorism Act.,
      Will become a way of debiting your account when they “instant-fine” you for any misdeed.

    • Originally when it started, very late, so too hard, but never mind, we are all in this together.
      Pretty much together in our blissful ignorance, in agreement an end was in sight, if we do it right.

      Now patience is shorter, even in myself, and the fear of being pushed, by unreasonable demands, like jobs, access to even basics like fuel, food, medical treatment, over the issue, that you should also be jabbed.
      Now the do it right factions have really split, by the nebulous choice of vax or not.

      Now divided, not only with politics, but the jabbed who are also frustrated, that they still have to wear masks, and be locked down, while virtue signaling, but no payoff.
      The unjabbed being told to get jabbed, and it is all safe, while noticing the unrelenting power of the jabbed is seems to be increasing, and becoming more demanding.

      Not that I am seeking unity, but that is why the letter writers to push, and to make known, the early first treatment, that is for both vacc & unvacc should agree to push hard on.
      If that can be done, then that crack opens up choice.

      Reduces fear in either division, to be able to show that it is just a flue/cold/sniffle and then maybe some other further conditions can be worked through, like just what is this mandatory jabbing nonsense about.

      Many of us notice the censoring effects, that goes back to the Christchurch shooting, and now rolled into Covid podium knowledge is to be discussed, debated or even allowed.

      Why even the political parties do not consider alternatives, the good & the bad, and even discuss it, debate it, instead remaining in lock step for the vaxx. as per wg’s post just below.
      Then that would make them perhaps a bit more acceptable, or they just come across as arrogant also.

    ACT leader David Seymour is rubbishing COVID-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins and the Government’s response to the Delta outbreak, saying it was “unprepared”.

    “Delta does raise some big questions that we’re going to have to grapple with… that does change everything,” he said. “It does mean all of our existing protections start to look less adequate and less robust as a result of that, so we’re looking very closely at what we can do there,” Hipkins told Q+A.

    Seymour said in a statement on Sunday Hipkins’ comments aren’t good enough. The Government needed to lay out how it will increase vaccination rates and boost COVID Tracer App scanning, Seymour said.

  25. Interesting photo from the past.
    King Mahuta at a Cabinet Meeting, Wellington, 1906

    This exceptional photo shows legendary Prime Minister, Richard “King Dick” Seddon, (far end of table) presiding over one of his last Cabinet meetings, with the Maori King, the Hon. Mahuta Tawhiao Potatau Te Wherowhero, Minister without Portfolio, sitting on the right.

    Standing on the right is the Hon. James Carroll, Native Minister (iwi Ngati Kahungunu). Mahuta Tawhiao is said to have delegated the kingship duties during his time on the Legislative Council (June 1903 – August 1906) to his younger brother Te Wherowhero Tawhiao. A skylight provides wonderful illumination to the room, which still exists in pristine condition in the Old Government Building on Lambton Quay.

    Seddon served as Premier in New Zealand from 1893 until his death on 10 June 1906.

    The people are (left to right): Hon. C.H. Mills, Commissioner of Trade and Customs; Hon. T.Y. Duncan, Minister of Lands; Hon. J. McGowan, Minister of Justice; Hon. Sir Joseph Ward, Minister for Railways; the Rt Hon. R.J. Seddon, Prime Minister; Hon. W. Hall-Jones, Minister for Public Works; Hon. Albert Pitt, Attorney-General; standing, Hon. James Carroll, and Hon. Mahuta Tawhiao. It seems that James Carroll has had to temporarily vacate his chair at the near end of the Cabinet table in order to allow photographer James Muir a clear shot.

    Earlier this month, President Joe Biden’s former COVID-19 advisor and top epidemiologist warned Americans ‘that many of the face cloth coverings that people wear are not very effective’.

    He explained his contention with the term ‘masking’ saying, ‘You know I wish we could get rid of the term masking because in fact it implies that anything you put in front of your face works and if I could just add an nuance to that which hopefully doesn’t add more confusion is we know today that many of the face cloth coverings that people wear are not very effective in reducing any of the virus movement in or out.’

  29. I just had a nice experience with masks (or rather, without a mask).

    I went to Pak’nSave and walked in after picking a trolley when a security guy behind me said (quite politely) “Excuse me you’ll need to wear mask.” I turmed and smiled broadly and greeted him like an old friend “Oh hello mate” I said, flashing him my ‘f’ace covering exemption’ which I’ve downloaded on my phone from
    http://www.Covid19. govt.nz/face-covering
    “thank you…. but I have a medical condition and they gave me an exemption from having a mask.”

    The security guy smiled and said “Oh OK then, we’ll just let this guy know” and he led the way to a bigger guy further in and explained that I have an exemption. “Oh yes I saw one the other day. It’s a card thing isn’t it?” said the big guy, and I replied that yes you could have a card, but I’ve got it on my phone and I showed it to him.

    “Oh yes, that’s it! All good, have a good one mate! ” said the nice man. And I happily went off to do my shopping.

    It was a bit weird, though, being the only person in a crowded supermarket not wearing a face nappy. But I didn’t get any dark looks from anybody, and I didn’t meet Ken or Karen, so all good. 😅😅😅

A little reminder for those carrying a Smartphone in your pocket…yes, that is my phone – I am not that pleased to see you ……ensure you turn Bluetooth off, if turned on Bluetooth “handshakes” with other smartphones creating a record of attendance! Try it turned on in a Cafe or Supermarket and check the long list of devices!

    I have been flying down to Mexico to get my Ivermectin. They sell it right in the grocery store for less than $10 a dose. How pathetic can this country be? I also keep several tubes of horse paste as a backup. No one in my family has had the plague. We all have high risk jobs also. Thanks for the video.

    My husband and I have been so incredibly sick for 10 days now. We’ve barely eaten and haven’t left our beds. I’m going to try this since no doctor seems to want to make us well with HCQ. We are at our wits end. The corrupt government wants us all to be sick and die. Thank you for help with this!

    I am a nurse and after taking care of COVID + residents after 9 months I myself became positive. I found the FLCCC Alliance protocol and followed it…the Ivermectin I took was the horse paste everyone at work made fun of me…until they saw it actually worked!!

  32. “Graham, a Scottish quack, was able to charge infertile couples £50 a night to lounge in his Celestial Bed, which had a mattress lined with hair from stallions’ tails. The artist Ann Jemima Provis and her father, Thomas, caused embarrassment to the Royal Academy by conning its president, Benjamin West, into thinking they had stumbled on a rare manuscript that would allow him to emulate the luminous style of the Venetian masters. William Charlton painted black spots on the wings of a yellow butterfly and announced thathe had discovered a new species, which in due course found its way into the British Museum.

    None of the above appear in Ian Keable’s The Century of Deception. But each is a symptom of an age when it became common to speak of ‘English credulity’. Regardless of whether the willingness to believe absurd fictions was a specifically English affliction (Keable thinks not), there was no shortage of hucksters eager to exploit it. The rise of newspapers and magazines meant that tales of the bizarre and the outrageous could circulate widely and quickly, while the rapid increase in printed advertising made it easy to promote stunts and shams.”

    • BTW the word ‘abyss’ may derive from the Sumerian ‘absu’ which was the ocean they believed encircled the world and was under the ground. Wells and springs were presumably their boon in return for offerings and sacrifices.

    • This is what the truck driver is referring to I think.
      I would still like to see the whole claim, as they also need to present their evidence, sources, and there is a lot of that to start making a case.
      Maybe on the side of a truck.
      Governments need to be challenged to allow full discussion and debate.

      Coronavirus: The bogus meme targeting Dr Fauci, and other fake claims
      https://www.bbc.com/news/53601027

      This is where the corporate censorship, dog whistled by governments so the politicians can claim that they do not suppress data, information, and so no debate, no discussion.
      It is “Discourse Consensus” where the language figures there is an agreement, and that this reduces to their facts, and other facts are just too pesky, to even allow a debate on.

      Why after the spill of e-mails to & fro from Fauci, and the departments he was and or in charge of that one can not be able to form a reasonable case, and bring out more “discovery” of documents, money trails etc..
      Sure I know for the time being the control is even too far away in the “deep state” and the “intelligence” arms that thread through so many of the USA institutions, whilst haven taken an unaccountable life of their own.

      I can not explain exactly, but for me, until the origins, what was done in the USA, Canadian, and even Britain, then the linkages to the Wuhan lab and all that they did is fully opened up, and yes I would not be surprized that things may remain impossible to find.
      Still it needs to be addressed, so that what works out from that, could possible be a vaccine, that in my “feelz” will be based on truth, and has a greater chance of working, and be safe.

      It is a bit like the US, November 3rd elections must be totally audited, and probably best in all counties, no exceptions.
      Only then one can set up a system so every one can trust the future elections in the future.

    Covid booster jabs: why you probably won’t get one this autumn
    Andrew Gregory
    , Health Editor
    Saturday August 21 2021, 6.00pm BST, The Sunday Times
    Less than a fortnight ago the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention said most Americans did not need Covid booster jabs. Last Wednesday, however, the Biden administration performed a U-turn — announcing that third inoculations will be available to most adults from September.

    Within 24 hours, the UK also performed a volte-face — the other way round. Britain had been preparing a mass rollout of boosters for over-50s this autumn. However, that looks set to be shelved, with doses likely to be limited to only the most vulnerable.

    Why the abrupt change in policy on both sides of the Atlantic? American health leaders had become increasingly concerned about emerging data from Israel.

    It suggested that the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine’s protection against severe disease………..

    Sorry the rest is behind a paywall and I don’t have a hack for it but I think you get the message.

  34. I wonder if Ardern, Doomfield and the idiot child Hipokiss have seen this yet? Someone should bring it to their attention.

    Delta Variant
    The Vaccinated Are Worried and Scientists Don’t Have Answers

    Anecdotes tell us what the data can’t: Vaccinated people appear to be getting the coronavirus at a surprisingly high rate. But exactly how often isn’t clear, nor is it certain how likely they are to spread the virus to others. And now, there’s growing concern that vaccinated people may be more vulnerable to serious illness than previously thought.
    There’s a dearth of scientific studies with concrete answers, leaving public policy makers and corporate executives to formulate plans based on fragmented information. While some are renewing mask mandates or delaying office reopenings, others cite the lack of clarity to justify staying the course. It can all feel like a mess.

    • Thanks Alice, as one can see that this is still very much an experimental phase, that needs much more monitoring and a studies of just what is happening.

      That all needs some time, as so far it has been barely the time of gestation of human baby.
      Nor the the time for other problems that may arise, and some things take years, like certain cancers, dioxin problems, asbestos problems.

      Can they give us the data on the animal trials?
      Are they monitoring any animals? What happened to them? Is that a breach of the Nuremberg Code?

      Seems like the guinea pigs are the ones being jabbed now, but where are the blood tests, the monitoring of the people? Any biopsies? Any autopsies? Where is that information, data that should be accessible to the guinea pigs also, per the Helsinki Declaration?

  35. From the Herald:
    “Covid 19 coronavirus Delta outbreak: Locations of interest top more than 200 different locations”
    (There are actually 294)

    That’s a lot of locations. If, say, 50 people visited each of those locations, then that’s 50 X 200 = 10,000 people to contact and order to self-isolate.

    Just how many people like this can the system cope with? It has to have a limit. How can they know that every single person will obey? What about oppressed (but very disobedient) peoples? Is the State going to come down hard on those who are suffering from post-colonial disorder? (I think not.)

    I guess that they will be looking for people (in the oppressor class) to make examples of, to scare the rest of the population into line. Let’s see how “kind and caring” the regime is then, shall we?

  36. Here is an idea.
    Lets target people who matter with information aboput the seriousness of this vaccine and whats happening oversea’s. Let embarrass if we have to some of our Mpo’s.
    Let’s collect a lot of these links and post the info to the MP’s pages especially the Nats and ACT.
    Lets make a fuss.
    I have been but we need lots to cover the ground.
    We wll get banned by some but we can swap a round.

    We can’t go to work so let’s just make a bloody great noise in peoples ears.
    Remember a picture is worth a thousand words.

    I have already done a few but obviously we need a lot lot more or this bitch is going to shut us all down.

    • Good point Viking, and thanks for work done.
      A tag team, so that another persons perspective of the message may be the angle that opens the mind.

      Plus bill boards, sticky notes, sides of trucks.

      We need to consider the focus, like many more will agree to not vaccinate young people and children, than a complete no to the vax. Their choice, and even accept, it is their families they make the choice on.

      First and Early Cheap Treatment Protocols as already proven; for the Un-vaccinated AND for the Vaccinated, instead of just go home and self isolate if you do test positive, waiting for if you become so ill, then you go belatedly to hospital.
      Even Australia has been having trials on Ivermectin,

      Those 2 above points, on the medical issues, I would like to think be very difficult to argue down, and many would also would see the perspective of giving it ago as well.

      The wins may seem small, but the cracks of having alternative treatment protocols that pan out will eventually break the hold the vaccines seem to have.
      People seeing a win, that works, will consider other points, like how much testing is really needed.
      What they experience, is what they will build on.

      Then get the numbers of people to know of this. It then becomes what do the people understand and want.
      What will they do for that “want” principle.
      It is very rare for politicians to have principles, and then lead.
      Politicians join protests, and until they show they have had principles that stay true, never lead protests.

      Even to be friendly with such, as Baker, Hendy as to get more information, their sources, their bases, so that their points may be countered more deeply.

      I take your point on collecting links is a good idea.
      Can we categorize them in a way of which are the most authoritive and which one leads, and which back the othrer

  37. U.S. review of possible link between Moderna vaccine and uncommon side effect delays adolescent approval

    The investigation, which involves the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is focusing on Canadian data that suggests the Moderna vaccine may carry a higher risk of myocarditis for young people than the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, especially for males below the age of 30 or so. The authorities also are scrutinizing data from the United States to try to determine whether there is evidence of an increased risk from Moderna in the U.S. population for the condition, which causes inflammation of the heart.
