  1. We rerally are a natio n of envious shit heads are we not.
    The vitriol lambasted on the two epople who used their brains to escape Auckland is appalling.

    Why?
    Well no one has bothered to find out thier side of the story.

    Not the police.
    Not the press nor any media.
    And Mayor of the failed town of Queenstown was quick to get his fat face on the telly. whinging and complaining when he should have shut his cake hole and said thanks for the money. Its a dump anyway.

    Someone decided that they went to their holiday home from a level 3 depature. Currently allowed.

    All have fallen for Jacinda’s nasty.

    Were they tested? Have to be to cross the border.
    How isolated was their property?
    Did Airnz refuse their booking ?

    • My thoughts exactly. This is Ardern and co punching down again to make an example.
      The point is, they had essential worker status allowing them to legitimately cross the border to Hamilton. No problem there. Once there, what’s the difference between them jumping on a plane to Wanaka, or anyone else in Hamilton doing the same? Nothing. It’s a beat-up.

    • Good on them, theyve just done the same as our example setting MPs.
      Jacinda breached her own advice, she never returned home to auckland on the alotted 48hrs she didnt lock down she didnt social distance and she ensured she had at least double the media folk there then the rules allowed just to take selfies and ask pre scripted patsy questions. Probably one of the few in the country at lvl4 that had multiple nannies still working for them too.

      Its a pity that couple didnt spread covid at least then the south island would have a reason to be getting smashed by jacindas restrictions.

      • So Jim Boult the Qtn Mayor did a whinge then.

        He and the the others have spent the last 10+ years trying to drive Kiwis out of Queenstown and make it like a Swiss lake resort- full of high paying foreigners, not locals.

        When the shit hit the fan, suddenly locals were welcome, but only on his terms.

        It has become abundantly clear this so called Delta/Indian is a a lower class curse.
        It is rampant in South Auckland, West Sydney and the lower class areas of Melbourne.
        That is because they dont follow the rules, get all churchy (big groups gathering) , and anyway tend to live in bulging households of high breeding rates.
        It is not that deadly, just spreads more easily that last year’s flu .

        These border breakers- doing their Escape from New York act – who live in Auckland and have a holiday house in Wanaka do not fit that profile.

    • “We rerally are a natio n of envious shit heads are we not.”

      It’s the great New Zealand tall-poppy syndrome in action. Why is it that Kiwis really don’t like thinking outside the box and innovating? I guess it seems like “rule breaking” to them.

  2. Good news everyone, it’s Maori language week commonly known as the grand final of the left leaning media virtue signaling competition. When the radio alarm went off this morning I thought Neva was having a seizure but then I realised the sad reality.

  3. Some of the differences between having Covid & having a wart on the end of your knob:

    1) You don’t need a test to tell you have a wart on your cock.

    2) If you die of a coronary because you’ve been waiting for heart surgery since 2020 the wart won’t be listed as the cause of death.

  4. This is very, very good and should be compulsory viewing for our ridiculously inept PM and her sycophantic crew:

    “You forget how crazy it is until simple sense has to be clearly spelled out.
    Dr. Peter McCullough deserves the Nobel Prize in Medicine.

    The NIH, CDC, and FDA refuse to treat COVID-19 patients.
    Their suppression of safe and effective treatment protocols are a massive crime against humanity.
    Dr. McCullough published a treatment protocol that prevents hospitalization and death.

    He is on a crusade to educate the world about COVID-19:

    1. The virus does not spread asymptomatically.

    2. We should never test asymptomatic people.

    3. Natural immunity is robust, complete, and durable.

    4. COVID-19 is easily treatable at home.

    5. The current vaccines are obsolete, unsafe, and unfit for human use.

    His compassion and knowledge of the scientific literature shine through in his presentations.
    The world will be a much better place when Dr. Anthony Fauci is behind bars and Dr. Peter McCullough gets to treat his patients.”

      • I too, but then you have to realise this is what he has been doing for decades. He knows his stuff, unlike the bumbling idiots telling us how to live. When someone can talk that confidently on an issue as complex as this, then you know he is the real deal. Same with Dr Malone and Ryan Cole. They obviously know their stuff. That is why I have total confidence in what they are saying. As for politicians… Lowest form of pond dwelling scum ever to infest the earth….

  5. FFUUUCCKK, yesterday at this time I googled the NZ governments own debt clock, it has a column for debt per family and just 24 hours later my family’s debt has gone up $47,84c.
    That is very scary ,so just my portion of this tsunami of debt is increasing by $350.00 each week , thanks Cindy and Robbo I’m gonna have to give up the piss and drugs to pay my share.

  6. Rev, just had a look at the debt clock, she sure is smoking along, mind you I am not helping matters much, Mrs Hoss and I have not long gone on the pension, but I intend to extract every cent I can out of these bastards.
    My goal is to live long enough to get back all the tax I’ve paid over the years. I think I will need to live to about 180

    • Wonder how many of the youth of this country would do the same today? Very few I would say. No one today has the gumption to do anything other than bitch and moan about being politically correct. Those were the days when women were real women of power and men were strong and fought for what they believed. My Mum was in the Airforce and my Dad in the army. Mum stayed in NZ during the war and Dad was captured in Egypt, then spent the war in prison camps mainly in Germany after Italy capitulated, he did the march through Europe carrying those that would have been shot as they fell. Least we forget their bravery. I am so glad there are very few left to see what a pathetic lot we have become.

    • I wont read horrid shit but the headline there
      ‘promises a clear plan’

      that is bullshit right there
      They cannot plan anything on this …They just follow the plan handed down to them by their overseas masters
      Lockdowns, masks, forced injections, fear porn

      like lockdowns at a few hours notice for maximum disruption.
      Fifth one now
      -Mar 2020; Aug 2020; Feb 2021; Feb 2021 again; Aug 2021; all after MPs had their holiday and could move around on hols
      allegedly, the first one 18 months ago was to ‘flatten the curve’
      Yeah right.

      The plan is destruction of society and business
      Controlled lives, controlled movement, vaccine passport (sic) morphing in to a social credit system

      This was announced in 2017 when Liebour/NZ Fist said capitalism is over.
      With the debt levels now, plus a new $41 Billion NZ debt announced, there will be no ‘going back’ to 2016
      Because of ‘a cold’
      BS
      It is a takedown.

      That 2017 was the real announcement and people discarded it.
      That was a declaration of war and Winston Peters owns it as much as the current mob of low IQ overseas controlled puppets posing as ‘elected representatives’.
      Same is the USA with the ‘stolen election’
      Boris Johnson has been brought under control.
      Gladys Berejiklian has been brought under control.
      Ardern and the young Castro were already in place

      This is the execution of it – a world wide plan of the Great Reset
      This is a takedown
      Announcing local plans to the sheeple who then think they might get a little bit for freedom (please Sir, can I have some, more says urchin Oliver) is misdirection.

      I doubt ardern or robbers son have the intellect to understand the big picture.
      Johnny Keys does.
      I would expect Klarkenfuhrer does, I have not seen evidence one way or the other.

        happily accept this slavery. They watch, read and
        listen to the ‘news’. Stupefied on the propaganda
        churned out of the septic tank in Parliament by the
        bought and controlled media. These are the idiots
        who will dob you in to the filth, spy on you and record
        you on their cellphones. Ardern’s ‘team’ of civilian Stasi.

  7. Looks like we never coming out of Lockdown “The experts also say Auckland’s long-term future depends on vaccination rates – with one epidemiologist suggesting if we really wanted to eliminate Delta, Auckland could stay locked down until everyone had been vaccinated.”

    Who the fuck reports” The experts also say” Experts in what? Masturbating? I suspect the ever increasing urgency in the “get vaccinated mantra” indicates that many will not as more and more people find out about the toxicity and inefficacy of the “vaccines”. Before Sue Greys Post was removed from FB over the weekend there were over 1000 comments, and the debate was furious. There are hundreds of New Zealanders who will never get the vaccine. It was really enlightening.

    I emailed the company that produced the bottle I used to buy and they have responded that Medsafe changed regulations to classify it as a medicine and unfortunately the plant was not set up to produce medicines so they discontinued the line.

    • 33 cases Nine subclusters are not epidemiologically linked.

      Anyone with even an ounce of critical thinking will ask:
      What is the common link here?
      After eliminating water, air, food, and TV programs watched, there will only be one common denominator:
      ‘The Vaccine’.

      Which if the correct research is carried out, it will lead to an inescapable conclusion that the Vaccines are causinf the outbreaks.

      12

        • Given that the vaccine is supposed to mimic Covid-19, that would not be surprising.
          If you hire someone to test security by breaking into the bank you manage, or hacking into your network, i.e. mimic a real attack, you would expect in both cases (real and mimiced) that the intruder detection alarm would sound.

          So it makes plausible sense that a Vaccine that mimics the real Covid-19 virus in every way, will also test positive. And every cycle of the PCR test doubles the sample DNA quantity. But while each cycle doubles the quantity, quality and false positives increase.

          A PCR test run at the recommended maximum cycles of 25 (as per the PCR test inventor’s recommendation), the sample has been amplified 33,554,432 times. That is 33 million times. At 45 cycles the sample has been amplified 35,184,372,088,832 times. That is 35 trillion times.

          Or putting it in simple terms, a “positive” at 45 cycles started out with a DNA sample over 1 million times smaller than at 25 cycles. Such tiny fragments of DNA, could have easily been something else. To rule out other causes using the PCR test, any lab would have to have done thousands of tests on other substances to ensure that Covid-19 and only Covid-19 would produce that kind of result, It is a given that this has never been done.

          Anyway, the PCR Covid-19 test is still subjective and needs interpretation, whether it is at 25 cycles of 45 cycles.

          The problem with very high levels of amplification is the amount of background noise generated. And if someone still has to make a subjective decision as to what the partial DNA strand actually is, it gets even murkier. If someone has a bias to find Covid-19 to prove the agenda, than that is what they will find.

          You set a microphone in your garden shed aimed at the bedroom window over the road, to potentially catch your nymphomaniac wife shagging the young guy in that house. You could scan through a months of recordings and if suitably biased you could identify a sound that might sound like shagging. But at gain setting of 33 trillion, what you are hearing might actually be a couple of cosmonauts in the space station doing their daily workout on their rowing machines. Or two crickets shagging on Alpha Centauri.

          The PCR test is well and truly broken beyond 25-30 cycles, at best.

  12. Mrs Rissole is as chirpy as a box of birds today. She’s been polishing the silver, watering the houseplants and is now waxing the dining room table. She’s even lit one of those rose-scented candles and kissed the wart on the end of the Brigadiers nose as she scurried past with the vacuum cleaner!

    The Brigadier smells a rat. Or worse.

    “Gretel my dear. The barracks look splendid! Spring cleaning?”

    She couldn’t hear me over the whine of her antique vacuum cleaner (memo to self, perfect birthday or xmas present).

    Then when I came home from getting vindaloo paste from Countdown I overheard her say to her friend Muriel on the phone that her MOTHER is coming to stay with us after lockdown for a ‘week or so’.

    I was right! It wasn’t a rodent. It is my mother-in-law, Griselda Rissole. I can look forward to Coronation Street on TV. Old persons food, no curries. Endless photo albums. Yabba yabba yabba.

    HAVE MERCY ON RISSOLE. CAN I COME AND STAY AT YOUR PLACE???

    • FOR THE HONOUR OF MY WIFE GRETAL AND THE REGIMENT:

      Etiquette and rules for pistol dueling included the following:

      No duels were to be fought on Sunday, on a day of a Festival, or near a place of public worship.
      A gentleman, who valued his own reputation, would not fight a duel with, nor act as a Second to, a person who aggravated and increased discord or violence by striking someone with his fist, a stick, or a glove or called the person a liar, coward, or any other irritating name.
      The Second was to be “a ‘man who [was] not passion’s slave,’”and no gentleman was to accept the position of a Second, “without first receiving from his friend, a written statement of the case upon his honor.”
      When “bosom friends, fathers of large, or unprovided families, or very inexperienced youths … [were] to fight, the Seconds [were to] … be doubly justified in their solicitude for reconciliation.”
      A Principal was not to “wear light coloured clothing, ruffles, military decorations, or any other … attractive object, upon which the eye of his antagonist [could] … rest,” as it could affect the outcome of the duel.
      The time and place were to be as convenient as possible to surgical assistance and to the combatants. The Royal Code of Honor noted that “special precaution should invariable be used, to prevent … carrying wounded gentlemen over walls, ditches, gates, stiles, or hedges; or too great a distance to a dwelling.”
      The parties were to salute each other upon meeting “offering this evidence of civilization.”
      As there were always unexpected advantages — the terrain or light — advantages were to be “decided by the toss of three, five, or seven coins … carefully shaken in a hat,”and the challenged party was entitled to the first toss, the challenger to the second, and so on until the advantages were decided.
      No gentleman was allowed to wear spectacles unless they used them on public streets.
      There was to be at least 10 yards distance between the combatants.
      The Seconds were to present pistols to Principals and the pistols were not to be cocked before delivery.
      The combatants were to present and fire together without resting on their aim at the agreed upon signal.
      After each discharge the Seconds were to “mutually and zealously attempt a reconciliation.”
      Each combatant would fire one shot and if neither was hit but the challenger satisfied, the duel was declared over. However, if the challenger was unsatisfied, the duel continued. But no more than three exchanges of fire were allowed, as to exchange more shots was considered barbaric.
      The offended party determined what conclusion was acceptable and there were three possible outcomes: 1) first blood (the duel ended when one combatant was wounded); 2) the duel continued until one combatant was physically unable to proceed; or 3) death, a combatant was fatally wounded.
      Neither the Principal nor the Second were to abandon an injured gentlemen “without … securing for him a proper conveyance from the field.”
      After the duel was over, the Seconds were to remind friends and relatives of the combatants, that the slightest indiscretion could renew the breach and Principals were also to abstain from conversation upon the subject so as not to reopen closed wounds.

  13. 33 new community cases today.

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2021/09/got-to-face-facts-auckland-can-t-afford-to-wait-in-level-4-for-high-vaccination-rates-says-immunologist.html
    A leading immunologist says although widespread vaccination is the only long-term way to curb COVID-19, the immunisation rate should not be the only factor in ending the elimination strategy.

    Director of the Malaghan Institute of Medical Research and the programme director of the Vaccine Alliance, professor Graham Le Gros, says social and economic pressures and how much people can withstand restrictions should also determine when to abandon elimination.

    “This is only one event that got across the border and look at the mayhem, one-month lockdown, a billion dollars a week that’s just not sustainable in the long term and all the pressure that people are under – the family issues, the schools, the devastation to the economy and the extra health issues.

    “People aren’t getting their colonoscopies, getting their skin checked for melanoma, heart checks up, all those things are really important health issues.”

So I’m afriad the judge who will be rolled out will have a card as well so the plebs, will not know who the entitled scrot is! The good of the labour party will be maintained over the screeching karens, who are baying for blood, supporting karen from south who pimped on them.

Their unhealthy obsession with vaccines is not in the best interests of New Zealanders and I believe, as Bon says above, that Seymour is compromised. Meanwhile the latest figures from Public Health England are analysed in scrupulous fashion as usual by Politico here and the conclusion is quite clear.
          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84o3GJB96T0

          I see stuff is reporting there is still concern about the “mystery cases” not connected to other outbreaks. I wonder how long it will take the mega brains in charge of this clusterfuck to work out that they are most likely being caused by the vaccine?

    • You all beat me to it. I have written to them before about their Covid/vaccination stance. It is a waste of time trying to discuss it with them.
      They will find out next year how wrong they have been. My prediction is Australia and NZ will be “doing an Israel” by late autum , early winter (assuming they keep testing and do not stop to try to sweep it all under the carpet).

      Also I hope some of the court cases , internationally, are well under way or completed by then.

    • Politically they could have had their cake and eaten it.

      Sure push the vaccine, but not mandatory, and make sure they were on the side of the ones who were opposed.
      Showing the importance of “choice”

      Then even if having doubts about other first & early treatments, as Professor Borody, just over in the ditch did trials.
      Leave that as a choice for New Zealander to try.
      May be to push that New Zealand team up with that Aussie doctor and /or others to at the least have a trial, albeit difficult as NZ has really had such low numbers.
      That way they would also have an inside info line, & have kept abreast of the info, data that is turning up.

      That positions ACT to ride the wave, of Ivermectin HCQ, Zinc, and first hand knowledge in NZ, and even if = [devils argument] that combo did not work, still be seen to looking to actively try anything.
      If the vaccine does not work, then it still shows ACT still earnestly want things to work,

      Instead they have painted themselves into a corner, and needlessly so.

    • Take one example. There is a group going around claiming that over 100 New Zealanders have died from the COVID Vaccine. A terrifying thought if true. Normally smart, successful people have emailed Free Press asking, ‘surely there’s something too this?’

      Well I am an ACT supporter, but may not be for much longer.

      I know of several people that have died within hours of the shot, and in one case dropped dead within minutes of the shot. And cases where vaccine victims were whisked off to hospital in an ambulance from the vaccine clinic due to serious life threatening reactions.

      If I know of those cases just through normal day to day activities, what is the real figure nationwide?

      Clearly Seymour has had his Vaccine Borg/Parasite implant.

      However, I did reply to this.
      I dont know if it will make any difference and doubt it will.
      I said my piece.

      There are powerful forces at work.
      NSW Premier Berejiklian seemed quite liberal just a few months back but she did a hell of a U turn.
      So many U turns. After saying she would not do covinda press conferences she has U tuned on that.

    • I agree with that.
      Unfortunately the woke will go without your money and go to govt. for more.

      I got to thinking in the weekend.
      At the end of the day we are consumers and the mantra was and remains that consumers will vote with their feet.
      so I have decided that when purchasing products and services I will not bother with the woke but will buy elsewhere. I am also very happy to tell anyone who wants our services and decides to lay down a bunch of covid rules telling my staff what to di thay can get stuffed. Fortunately I can pick who I dobusiness with. Saves a lot of agro.

      Interestingly I find many people are over this shit and really could give a fuck for the rules.
      Money talks.
      You have the money and as always he who has the gold rules.
      Remember to make your decisions around that.
      Oh and save like hell, hell is coming.

  19. When reminded by a reporter, that at the beginning of this lockdown she had said it would be “short and sharp”, Cindy informed us that “short and sharp” didn’t refer to the lockdown itself, rather how long it would take to get us locked down. She then went on to assure us that that is how everyone naturally interpreted it.
    Guess it was only me then.

  20. This L4 Lockdown is costing the government a lot of money for the wage subsidy, since so many cannot work under these conditions.
    I understand that there have been two rounds of the subsidy so far, and that it is offered in L3 and L4.

    The Auckland L4 extension is due to run another 8 days to September 21st. If it is extended any further than that, a new round of wages subsidies will be in order for those unable to work. I think the government will be under a lot of pressure to avoid that.

    Provided that there are no more flare-ups in South Auckland, and the new cases taper off (or the PRC testing is tapered off) (one or the other or both), then I suspect that Wellington will announce on around September 21st that Auckland is to go straight to L2.5 as a reward for us being such good boys and girls.

    There will be stampedes and horrific injuries at KFCs across the Auckland Isthmus!

    • The pressure will go on to achieve a vaxxed rate of about 95%, including children. like another epidemiologist Rod Jackson of Auckland University calls for. 🙁
      Talks of converted mobile Mr Whippy vans, and Bring out your dangerous Unvaxxed to be jabbed,

      Whatever target that may not be explained to us, Level 4 will remain until it will seem all are jabbed.

      That will be banked rolled by IMF, World Bank as in line with UN-WEF controls.

      The fly-in of Spain & Denmarks vaccines, on top of the standard Pfizer delivery.
      Arms must be found for those vials of vaccines as soon as, before its expiry dates.

      • It is real crafty of Spain and Denmark. They have realized that the vaccine is pretty much useless against the “delta” scariant so are off loading their supplies onto gullible little New Zealand. It would be funny if I was not unwillingly helping to pay for it through my taxes.

      There is however a ‘problem’ (at least IMHO); What PROOF do we have that what DL and Bloomfield are telling us is correct?

      So far we’ve only HEARD their figures, not SEEN anything to back-up their claims, and for all we know they could have just made them up 10 seconds before entering the room..

      In the absence of viable, visible proof, scepticism will always take precedence, not helped by the presence of a ‘tame’ media which choses NOT to ask for such proof.

      ‘Absolute Power’ tends to have that effect…

      Thank you.

  21. Sorry, but after many years supporting ACT I can no longer support a closed mind that has now joined the enemy.
    Please tell Mr Seymour to resign in disgrace.
    Today’s newsletter will be the last in my mail box.
    The only recourse I have.
    If he and others bothered to see what is happening in the world he could have taken ACT into Govt. but no he has swallowed Jacinda’s lies and capitulated to the enemy.
    An action I accused John Key of when he went with the Maori party and not ACT.We have seen the results of that foolish ness.Politics is a war for the hearts and minds of people.If you capitulate to the enemy you have won nothing.
    That’s finished ACT just when it was getting back where it belongs.

    Call me again when you correct your closed minds.

    • I believe mr seymour has applied vaccine think to politics.

      The vax version
      ” get vaccintated to protect yourself and others in the community”

      The politic version
      “Follow and push the narritive to protect yourself and other MPs in the beehive”

      And just like the vaccine even when they all are 100% onboard they still dont fucking work!!!

  22. So we don’t know where its coming from but we will lock you up anyway..
    That’s sound logic, isn’t it?

    PANDEMIC PRESSURE INTENSE STILL
    In Australia, there were another 1257 new community cases in NSW today with another 1179 not assigned to known clusters, so not much material improvement there. They now have 14,633 locally acquired cases. Victoria is reporting another 473 new cases today, so it is getting worse quickly there now. Queensland is reporting four new cases. The ACT has 13 new cases. Overall in Australia, more than 42% of eligible Aussies are fully vaccinated, plus 25% have now had one shot so far. There were three new cases in New Zealand at the border, and 33 more in the community, all in Auckland and all within existing isolated bubbles. So far, 34% of eligible Kiwis now have both shots, another 32% the initial shot. All eyes will be on today’s Cabinet decisions, especially from Aucklanders.

  23. -83% FALL
    Number of properties auctioned by Barfoot & Thompson down from 163 in the week before lockdown to 27 last week.

    BUSINESS CONFIDENCE RESILIENT
    Preliminary results in the latest ANZ Business Outlook Survey show resilience, with forward looking activity indicators holding up well

    EVEN A PANDEMIC CAN’T SHAKE HOUSING CONFIDENCE
    The ASB housing confidence survey to reveals Kiwi’s expectations of continued house price increases have been surprisingly hard to sink. And the perception remains that it is still a relatively challenging time to buy a house at present. Further, respondents to this survey were increasingly aware of the likely upward journey for interest rates. More here.

    Nothing makes sense with all this.

  25. Treasury has also got a requirement to produce a statement regularly on the long-term fiscal position – what’s known as Long Term Fiscal Statement, and what it’s decided to do is combine the two and it’s released a draft paper for consultation, which makes fascinating reading.

    One of the things it says, is that looking at the impact of Covid, it thinks net debt will now peak at 48% of GDP in 2023. And in the Treasury’s view, there is currently no need to reduce debt levels. And it believes that deficits will shrink as the temporary support measures will end. And it also notes that debt level remains low relative to its peers such as the UK, Australia, America. The interest rate composition of debt is much more favourable than when net debt peaked at 55% of GDP in 1992.

  26. Talking labour and National this is worth a read.

    Michael Cullen set out his political philosophy in his autobiography. So has Chris Finlayson. His is having significant impact on Māori development.

    Chris Finlayson (pictured above) was Minister for Treaty Negotiations (and Attorney General) between 2008 and 2017. (Alas, he was Minister of Arts, Culture and Heritage for only six of those years.)

    His record is reported in in He Kupu Taurangi: Treaty Settlements and the Future of Aotearoa New Zealand. It will be an invaluable reference book for those working in the area. But also in the course of the book he also indicates something of his political philosophy (later he cites Edmund Burke favourably):

  27. Do they have any idea that is not acceptable behaviour?

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2021/09/brutal-gang-brawl-on-huntly-street-caught-on-camera.html
    A brutal street brawl between rival gang members in Huntly has been caught on camera.

    The graphic video starts with a group of men surrounded by children squaring up on the street before one man launches a vicious kick into another man’s stomach.

    “F*** him up, dog,” one female onlooker shouts as they swing blows at each other.
