  1. Yet another porky from Lie Cinda .
    Just goes to show how untrustworthy this
    good for nothing leader and her bunch of clueless clowns are.
    Wasn’t she the one that said we are your only source of truth?
    Ditch the bitch.

    This post has taken me too long to get up the guts to write.

    You see I’m a Professor in Public Health.
    One of the most important things in public health is “to do no harm”.
    Or at least in a more practical sense, have the good by far outweigh the harms you cause with whatever intervention you choose.

    This is about vaccine mandates. It’s a complex and emotive issue.

    The brutal truth is that there are no harm free choices here. All choices will have some harm.

    But, deadlines are coming – here’s our Ministry of Health’s advice under public orders
    “Any health and disability workers (employed or voluntary, private and public) who fall under these roles must receive their first dose of the vaccine by 11.59pm 15 November 2021.
    They must receive their second dose by 1 January 2022.”

    That’s Monday folks.

    I’m not an “anti-vaxxer”. I’m fully vaccinated.

    But some people will choose not to follow these orders for various reasons.
    Some of them may be logical based on the data that there is no protection beyond 200 days,
    and the data on reductions in transmission are limited,
    and they are concerned about adverse events.

    We all make different decisions given similar data because we are all different and have different ways of weighing risks and benefits.
    They may see the futility of a public health system which would on current evidence have to boost every 120-150 days to maintain vaccine efficacy.
    Or maybe they just don’t like being told what to do, or have a more complex theory which may be spurious.
    Who really knows?

    Anyway, the point is that there will always be a group who for whatever reason decides that, in this case, their bodily sovereignty, is sacred to them and they will refuse a public health order like this.

    What this means is on Monday kids will turn up to school and their classroom teacher will no longer be there, that their mid-wife will no longer be working, that their doctor is no longer able to practice.

    This will cause serious harm. It almost certainly will mean that our already overwhelmed health and education systems will not have the staff to carry out normal duties.

    This debate has already caused substantial harm and division in our beautiful country.
    I believe in the context of the recent Swedish data showing vaccine waning, that it’s now obvious to any thinking person the futility of these mandates.

    We can predict that the exact thing we are trying to avoid “overwhelming the health system” is exactly what we are going to do by firing health workers.

    What government puts on its own handcuffs on and throws away the key?

    This isn’t us.

    So sorry I can’t stand by silently and watch this. I have to say something.

    I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to pluck up the courage.

    Sorry if this upsets you, but come Monday I know of real teachers, real GPs, real mid-wives, real physios, real people without jobs.
    Real communities without their beloved teachers and health professionals who are here to care for them.
    These are my communities, my friends, my school.

    These are mostly not lunatic fringe anti-vaxxers.
    They are people often making their own rationale decision.
    Yes its different than mine, but it is theirs.

    I fear we are choosing more harm than good, and in my field that’s just not acceptable.
    In fact it’s unethical and immoral.

    Please think about what your thoughts are on this matter.
    It is really an important one for our society right now.
    Saying nothing when you think there will be more harm than good is complicit in supporting that harm.

    Please comment, share, or do whatever you think is right here. Please if you do comment think about what you say and please confront the issues not the person.

    Thanks for reading this,

    • The problem is also that is supposed to be declared in pecuniary interests assets & liabilities and it is not.

      In what form does it take? pot of gold? land? shares? Bit coin?
      Has it passed been passed through the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering Financing of Terrorism system?

      The last U – tube clip I saw, in its preliminary blurb told me that I too could make money hand over fist, by following the very wise Prime Minister Ardern that invested in their systems.

      Since this seems to be proven true, I better follow and connect into such source too, as this investment is sure fire better than those who have some Uncles in Nigeria. 🙂
      Those dairy farms in Southland sound like a pot of gold at then end of the rainbow, where she has invested some of that loot into “white gold” sound interesting too

      All land titles are searchable. and transactions of such will be stamped & filed, allow some months after. Owners of such can be searched for in trusts, & company offices..

    • Politicians who squander the influence vested to them by democracy and swap it for money, should be jailed. They betray the trust we granted. There should be laws for these lawless scum. No political agent should be able to make money from the spheres of influence they worked in doing their civic duty. Any breaches of this maxim should be hung by their ankles.

      • This Merry Go Round to NO known actual source becomes very dangerous, but not for Ardern. It becomes a whip to beat us even more!

        It will be used to denigrate people to convince other viewers, like being total anti-vaxxers, and then used gain more power to twist Mis-information, hate speech laws.
        So why do we keep just inanely under estimating Ardern and the purpose of lies?
        Why do we keep repeating nonsense proving that point?

        Sure I know I am not perfect, and have gone down rabbit holes, and sometime report things a bit to early, or have an over reaction.
        Often enough others pick up and get to a good source which allows our common knowledge, shared wisdom to bring more reason for good consideration.

  4. After the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals over the weekend said it would continue to temporarily block a Biden administration mandate requiring all private businesses with 100 or more workers to require COVID-19 vaccines or weekly testing, Surgeon General Vivek Murthy said he believes such a rule would “be a setback.”

    “I think it would be a setback for public health,” Murthy told Fox News on Sunday. “What we know very clearly is that when people get vaccinated—and the more people who get vaccinated the quicker we’re able to bring this pandemic to an end—the more lives that we can ultimately save.”

    A number of studies have shown that fully vaccinated individuals can spread COVID-19 to other fully vaccinated individuals. Currently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)’s data shows the United States has reported about 47 million confirmed COVID-19 cases and 759,000 deaths since the pandemic started 20 months ago.

  5. A clearly inebriated woman, sta*rk na*ked, jumped into a taxi in New York City and lay on the back seat.
    The cab driver, an old Jewish gentleman, opened his eyes wide and stared at the woman. He made no attempt to start the cab. The woman glared back at him and said,
    “What’s wrong with you, honey? Haven’t you ever seen a na*ked woman before?”
    The old Jewish driver answered, “Let me tell you sumsing, lady. I vasn’t staring at you like you tink; det vould not be proper.”
    The drunk woman giggled and responded, “Well, if you’re not staring at my b**bs or my b*utt, sweetie, what are you doing then”
    He paused a moment, then told her…”Vell, M’am, I am looking and I am looking, and I am tinking to myself, vair in da hell is dis lady keeping de money to pay for dis ride?”
    Now, that’s a businessman!

  6. Fable for the day. We are all getting somewhat frustrated with people who simply can hear no evil about our defacto leader.

    DON’T ARGUE WITH DONKEYS (Fable)
    The donkey said to the tiger:
    – “The grass is blue”.
    The tiger replied:
    – “No, the grass is green.”
    The discussion heated up, and the two decided to submit him to arbitration, and for this they went before the lion, the King of the Jungle.
    Already before reaching the forest clearing, where the lion was sitting on his throne, the donkey began to shout:
    – “His Highness, is it true that the grass is blue?”.
    The lion replied:
    – “True, the grass is blue.”
    The donkey hurried and continued:
    – “The tiger disagrees with me and contradicts and annoys me, please punish him.”
    The king then declared:
    – “The tiger will be punished with 5 years of silence.”
    The donkey jumped cheerfully and went on his way, content and repeating:
    – “The Grass Is Blue”…
    The tiger accepted his punishment, but before he asked the lion:
    – “Your Majesty, why have you punished me?, after all, the grass is green.”
    The lion replied:
    – “In fact, the grass is green.”
    The tiger asked:
    – “So why are you punishing me?”.
    The lion replied:
    – “That has nothing to do with the question of whether the grass is blue or green. The punishment is because it is not possible for a brave and intelligent creature like you to waste time arguing with a donkey, and on top of that come and bother me with that question.”
    The worst waste of time is arguing with the fool and fanatic who does not care about truth or reality, but only the victory of his beliefs and illusions. Never waste time on arguments that don’t make sense… There are people who, no matter how much evidence and evidence we present to them, are not in the capacity to understand, and others are blinded by ego, hatred and resentment, and all they want is to be right even if they are not.
    When ignorance screams, intelligence is silent. Your peace and quiet are worth more.

  7. Over 2500 returnees were eligible to leave MIQ on Sunday if they had been isolating at MIQ for seven or more days.

    Joint Head of MIQ Brigadier Rose King said this was the largest release in the history of MIQ.

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/covid-19-delta-outbreak-fully-vaccinated-cases-now-only-have-to-isolate-for-10-days/WH44ISKFTEHMWNSOQV6LWZL7YI/

    “Over 2400 of the eligible people are leaving MIQ today – about eight times more than we would normally see depart each day,” King said on Sunday.

    “This is the largest release in the history of MIQ, and a great logistical effort as we organise test results, health checks and transport back to the point of arrival for each person.
    =======================================
    That was kept very bloody quiet.
    My Gdaughter was at auck. Uni. Have to leave on Saturday. No more accommodation. Waited 4 days for her test result. didn’t have it and the police just waved her thru.

    That clearly shows you what date jacinda has set as “freedom day” for the compliant vaccinated sheeple.

      • Epstein, Weinstein, Jack Rubinstein were only sacrificial goats. Like Soros. Attractors of public opprobrium. Diversions. Maxwell’s father cavorted with Mossad and much closer to ruling elite. Very bad press. Part of the insane reaction we are witnessing in other public fields, BLM, ANTIFA, Climate change, Covid. Many elites are terrified, and terrorising in kind.

  11. My link did not work last night so I’ll type out the joke I got via email.

    The Pope and Jacinda were on the stage together outside Parliament in front of a huge crowd.

    The Pope leans towards Jacinda and says “Do you know that with one wave of my hand I can make every person in this crowd go wild with joy? This joy will not be a momentary display, but will go deep into their hearts and they’ll forever speak of this day and rejoice”

    Jacinda replied, ” I seriously doubt that! With one little wave of your hand? ..Show me!”

    So the Pope backhanded her and knocked her off the stage !

    AND THE CROWD ROARED & CHEERED WILDLY and there was happiness throughout the land!

  13. It is not the changes done before Christmas I fear; it will be what is locked into place and called the new wonderful new normal before next winter !
    .
    Aucklanders could be locked in by alert level borders for the next month before travel restrictions are eased in time for Christmas, the Herald understands.
    .
    Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern … …. put the city into the traffic light system very soon after a review of vaccination rates on November 29.
    .
    The Herald understands the rest of New Zealand could follow a week to 10 days later, by mid-December, and Auckland’s boundaries would reopen soon after …. …..
    .
    …. While there would still be some policing of those boundaries, it would be a soft boundary with spot checks, rather than checkpoints where every car is vetted. ….
    .
    …. rest of New Zealand would move to the traffic light system even before all DHB regions hit the 90 per cent fully-vaccinated milestone.
    .
    That was because public health advice was that the new system was safer than level 2 of the old alert level system, because it took into account vaccination status. ….

    https://www.newstalkzb.co.nz/news/national/covid-19-delta-outbreak-auckland-borders-could-be-gone-by-mid-december/
    .
    Will become interesting which vechicles will be waved through?
    In what ratio’s will the “profiles” be?
    .
    Then the noose will be slowly tightened in their “kindly” bungling ways so as not to appear to have serious intent, by activating the segregating traffic light system.
    Do not under estimate it, enforced on business’s with massive penalties, fines, enforcing suspensions of closure etc.

  14. Dragging out the “experts” to push the booster now. In the US they are looking at changing the word for jab 3 to something different from booster, because the phycos have decided it is not right for the narrative .

    In NZ they have started saying it will last for years ! Based on what evidence?? Here is a good post from BDF last night

    “Some expert who looked like worsel gummage dragged backwards through a combine harvester claimed on 3 news that you would get protection for 4 to six years with the booster. That defies logic as two gives you six months another would only gives you 3 months. After all it is the same jab.”

    On Seven Sharp their “expert” was apparently saying it would last for 2 years !

    It looks like the dart board has taken a thrashing by these “experts”

    • Ross, maybe read between the lines?

      Some expert who looked like worsel gummage dragged backwards through a combine harvester claimed on 3 news that you would get protection for 4 to six years with the booster.

      He is probably repeating what he was told and that is “the booster shots last 4-6 years”, or something similar. i.e. The booster will last 4-6 years, or your remaining lifespan, whichever is the smaller. A slow death sentence.

  16. An Alabama pastor said to his congregation, “Someone in this congregation has spread a rumour that I belong to the Ku Klux Klan.
    This is a horrible lie and one which a Christian community cannot tolerate. I am embarrassed, and do not intend to accept this. Now, I want the party who said this to stand and ask forgiveness
    from God and this Christian family.”
    No one moved. The preacher continued, “Do you have the nerve to face me and admit this is a falsehood? Remember, you will be forgiven and in your heart you will feel glory. Now stand and confess your transgression.” Again, all was quiet.
    Then, slowly, a drop-dead gorgeous blonde with a body that would stop a runaway train rose from the third pew. Her head was bowed and her voice quivered as she spoke,
    “Reverend there has been a terrible misunderstanding. I never said you were a member of the Ku Klux Klan. I simply told a couple of my friends that you were a wizard under the sheets.”………

    General Manager, Bank of International Settlements (BIS)
    Agustin Carstens
    Sent a chilling message regarding the future direction of central bank digital currencies (CBDCs). All FED Chairs [world wide] report to this fellow.

  18. ‘K-shaped’ economic recovery widening gap between haves and the have-nots – economist
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/money/2021/11/k-shaped-economic-recovery-widening-gap-between-haves-and-the-have-nots-economist.html

    While the Government has crowed about its success in keeping the economy afloat during the biggest crisis of a generation, not everyone’s benefitting.

    Household wealth is on track to increase $800 billion in just two years thanks to ballooning asset prices. It increased $402 billion in the year to March 2021, rising almost as much in 12 months as it had in the previous four years put together.

    “The worry is that… the massive dichotomy between the haves and the have-nots. We’ve got what’s called the K-shaped recovery. Some parts of society, if you’ve been on that property or asset price ladder, you’ve benefited tremendously from low interest rates and asset prices moving up.”

  23. Dear Jacinda,
    When you became Labour Party leader, seven weeks before the 2017 election, you had been a little-known list MP.
    We now know that nine months before being elected to Parliament in 2008, you had become President of the International Union of Socialist Youth. The fact that instead of immediately resigning from that role after becoming an MP, you continued on as President for a further fifteen months, should have caused concern – especially after a video emerged showing you referring to conference attendees as “comrades” fifteen times in seven minutes.
    Being trusting people, we didn’t think that meant you were a communist.
    We saw the media fawning over your elevation to Party leader so enthusiastically that the term “Jacindamania” was coined. And we noted that these media cheerleaders gave you favourable coverage during the election campaign.
    In spite of that, Labour received 956,000 votes or 36.9 percent, while 1,152,000 New Zealanders – 44.4 percent – supported National.
    That result showed the country had overwhelmingly voted for conservatism and stability.
    But Winston Peters, holding the balance of power and ignoring the wishes of the majority of voters, anointed you as our 40th Prime Minister.
    Kiwis are fair-minded, and you were given the chance to prove yourself. But while you had great communication skills, and what appeared to be genuine empathy, it soon became clear that true to your hard line roots you intended to impose destructive socialist extremism onto New Zealand.
    The first indication of your intention was your unilateral decision to ban new deep sea oil drilling to effectively close down New Zealand’s oil and gas industry. This was done without warning, without consultation, and without Cabinet approval, on the eve of your first overseas trip as Prime Minister – allegedly so you could look decisive on the world stage.
    We saw this again following the Christchurch terror attack – even though the perpetrator was a deranged foreigner, you cracked down on the rights of law-abiding Kiwi firearm owners without warning, consultation, or proper justification. Driven by a seemingly insatiable desire for international recognition, you appeared oblivious to the livelihoods and lifelong interests you were destroying.
    We then became concerned in 2019 to hear you tell a meeting hosted by Bill Gates, that without our knowledge, you were imposing the United Nations Agenda 2030 onto New Zealand: “My Government is doing something not many other countries have tried. We have incorporated the principles of the 2030 Agenda into our domestic policy-making in a way that we hope will drive system-level actions. I believe that the change in approach that we have adopted in New Zealand is needed at a global scale.”
    But while you were successfully embedding the UN’s socialist agenda into every regulation and law change, your election promises of building affordable housing, reducing homelessness, and eliminating child poverty were all turning into dismal failures.
    And even though the media had largely stuck by you, by the end of 2019 the growing discontent – especially within the business and farming sectors that were facing a tsunami of restrictive rules and regulations – was so widespread it was reflecting in the polls, indicating yours was likely to be a one-term government.
    That is until Covid-19 came along early in election year.
    Covid became a socialist leader’s dream. It enabled emergency measures curtailing freedom and liberty to be embedded into every facet of our lives – with minimal Parliamentary scrutiny.
    Under the guise of fighting Covid you hired a multi-million-dollar Rolls Royce communications team to provide you with expert advice: as long as you could keep fear of Covid top of mind right up to voting day, your re-election was assured.
    And that’s exactly what happened.
    Winning over 50 percent support from New Zealanders was a remarkable achievement.
    On election night you assured the country you would govern for ‘all’ Kiwis: “We will not take your support for granted. And I can promise you, we will be a party that governs for every New Zealander.”
    We wanted to believe you.
    But we now know, those words were a lie.
    The separatist agenda you unleashed is unprecedented in New Zealand’s history.
    We now know that you concealed the ‘He Puapua’ blueprint- to replace democracy with tribal rule – for 12 months prior to the election.
    That report reveals your plan is to introduce 50:50 co-governance, to give the Maori elite, who represent just 15 percent of the population, disproportionate power and unimaginable authority over the lives of the 85 percent of other New Zealanders.
    Why did you not tell us during the election campaign that you intended to transfer democratic power to an unelected and unaccountable tribal aristocracy so they can control New Zealand for their own benefit?
    Since you didn’t reveal those intentions before the election, you have no mandate from New Zealanders to replace democracy with tribal rule.
    And while you have denied ‘He Puapua’ is Labour Party policy, it’s clear that is another lie.
    New Zealanders are not stupid – we have read the He Puapua report and we can see that the laws you are now enacting are part of this agenda for tribal control.
    In health, when you realised that a Maori Health Authority with the right of veto over the entire health system couldn’t be established under the decentralised District Health Board model, without any consultation you announced that DHBs would be abolished. You have no mandate to replace community control of health with a centralised apartheid bureaucracy prioritising Maori over those with more serious medical needs.
    Putting race ahead of need is not the New Zealand way. It is shocking and callous. How can anyone with genuine empathy and a clear conscience possibly think it’s OK? And restructuring the entire health system during a pandemic is not only ideological madness, but it borders on being criminally reckless.
    In education you are allowing Maori extremists to dictate the curriculum and indoctrinate children with a worldview that denigrates our history and the people who helped build our nation.
    In local government, you abolished the democratic rights of local communities to reject plans to divide them by race. It seems clear that this was the first step towards the He Puapua goal of tribal control of local authorities.
    You have no mandate for your disastrous Three Waters proposal to give control of ratepayer-funded water infrastructure and services to the Maori tribal elite. Communities up and down the country are outraged at this blatant seizing of local assets – and the transfer of democratic control that will undoubtedly lead to the imposition of royalties to Maori whenever a Kiwi tap is turned on.
    And what about your plan to silence opponents through proposed hate speech laws? You did not seek a mandate to ‘criminalise’ someone for political views – such as criticising Labour politicians or Maori supremacists – yet that is what your draft law changes are proposing.
    Nor did you seek a mandate to effectively buy media support for your plan for tribal rule. You campaignedon funding the media, but you did not explain that the $55 million Public Interest Journalism Fund would be contingent on supporting the fabricated Maori ‘partnership’ claim that underpins He Puapua. In some countries, political leaders who attempt to unduly influence the media through taxpayer funding, are being accused of corruption.
    What hold does the tribal elite have over you? Why are you prepared to sacrifice the democratic rights of all New Zealanders, so they can have power? Kind people may think that you are simply naive and being duped by your Maori caucus. Others believe that creating disunity is part of your socialist DNA.
    When it comes to your management of Covid, we are now witnessing the loss of liberty on a scale unimaginable from a New Zealand Prime Minister.
    You have given yourself the authority to control our lives, even to the point of allowing police – or their ‘agents’ – to enter our homes and businesses without a warrant.
    Now, through vaccine mandates – that you promisedbefore the election you would not introduce – you are dividing our nation and trampling over sacred civil liberties and democratic rights protected by the New Zealand Bill of Rights.
    In 1990, when Labour Prime Minister Geoffrey Palmer was introducing the Bill of Rights in Parliament, he explained that it was a safeguard to protect New Zealanders against the unbridled power of future governments: “It is unlikely that there will be a wholesale disregard of human rights in New Zealand in the foreseeable future, but… we cannot afford to wait until rights disappear before we take action, because it is too late by that stage. It is better to have a Bill of Rights when it is not needed than to not have one when it is needed.”
    Now, twenty-one years later, you are leading a government that is doing exactly what he believed would never happen in New Zealand – you are stomping on the basic human rights of New Zealanders.
    This is not the New Zealand way – and it is not what voters thought they were getting when they gave you the responsibility of leading our country for the benefit of all.
    You have betrayed us, and we have lost trust in you and your Government.
    That’s why we don’t love you anymore, Jacinda – and why we want you to resign.

The GPs, husband & wife, won’t toe the government’s line & have insisted on answering their patients’ questions truthfully. Stuff & their paid “experts” naturally know better.

    The doctor is quoted as saying:

    …… “The reality is that the vaccine confers personal protection. See it as a life-jacket – if you choose to wear it, well, then everybody wishes that it will keep you afloat.

    “But for those who choose not to wear it, there is no rationality in saying ‘put your life-jacket on so that my life-jacket can work’.”……

    He argues his point well.

    • That dr is brilliant and he put the journalist in his place. We need more medical personnel to use their common sense and hold onto their medical sincerity. How come nobody has put the thumb screws on the reprehensible behaviour of the NZ Medical Council? The breach of trust caused between our GP’s, medical consultants and the public has been damaged beyond repair and the consequences cannot be swept under the carpet.

      If Pfizer made condoms:

      Politician: “I’m married to a very hot woman, and she and I decided to not have any children. So I started using Pfizer ‘Super Vax’ condoms. But my wife keeps getting pregnant, and we now have six children. My friends are all conspiracy theorists because they say that either the condoms don’t work, or someone else is banging my wife.

      Pfizer deny that their condoms don’t work, but they say that the only way to stop my wife getting pregnant again is to ensure that all men who visit our house wear a condom, otherwise my condom won’t stop my wife getting pregnant.

      We have an ever increasing population so it must be a nationwide problem. So I’m trying to push a bill through parliament to enforce all men to wear condoms in public.

      Here is a photo of me with the wife and kids.”

        Like at least in Northland we saw it when questions were asked, when she then shifted the press conference
        We know she heard what was called out in Wanganui.

        The media may try to cover, lie, deceive, but the people there, cameras, videos add to that dimension, in these times of :-
        “we know she lies, she knows we know she lies, and she continue to lie”.

        Even if covered over by the media, there enough glimpses that even the avid supporters can see some of the wrongs, have some doubt, and lose some fanaticism for her.

        Keeping our cool, remains critical; or we will have the grounds of credibility easily whipped out from under our feet.

        Part of given them enough rope, & they will hang themselves,
        Do not get tangled up, and so save them.

        P.S. DH, also goes for the tennis balls thrown by “antivaxxers” that supposedly had the words to hang Ardern and a supposed “hang-man’s noose”, that was supposedly sighted.

          I agree with S1, stating they’ve had death threats is a way for politicians to avoid criticism. Instead they take to the TV stations like they did this morning to hold propaganda forums on how wonderful their decisions are for us all.

        “The reality is that many people rent in Wellington. We don’t know how many previous tenants there have been that still have a key to that place. All those sorts of things.

        A good way to alleviate this concern is to ask your landlord for permission to change the locks.

    Tatua director Ross Townshend has resigned from the dairy company after coming under fire for a social media post about Foreign Affairs Minister Nanaia Mahuta.

    The Facebook post, which has since been deleted, contained an image and text and disrespectfully described Mahuta. It was widely condemned online with users calling it “racist”, “disgusting” and “appalling”.

    Tatua Chairman Stephen Allen said the post was “incompatible” with the company’s culture and values.

    “On Monday evening, it was brought to my attention that Mr Townshend had posted highly inappropriate messaging on social media in relation to a Minister of Parliament.

    “Mr Townshend’s personal views and the way he chose to express them are incompatible with Tatua’s culture and values. Therefore, his actions left me with no other course of action than to accept his resignation on behalf of the Tatua Board of Directors,” he said.

    COVID-19: Unvaccinated Canterbury teacher ‘soul-destroyed’ after being stood down, calls jab mandate a ‘human rights issue’

    Rachael Mortimer is the head of English and social sciences at a south Canterbury school. She says she has a blood condition which means getting the vaccine is dangerous for her despite not being eligible for an exemption.

    “I actually have a blood condition which has a peer-reviewed study on it talking about how if I take the vaccine I am at higher risk of developing blood clots. So that puts me in a really bad position considering there have been quite a few people with blood clots from this vaccine.

    “I can’t get an exemption, I’ve tried that. The criteria is too narrow so even with this blood condition I don’t qualify. I am in a rock and a hard place: do I go and get this vaccine which could potentially do major damage to me, or do I lose my job? And my health is a little bit more important to me.”

  31. The experience of a vaxxed woman in Ontario Canada

    https://odysee.com/20211115_adverseeffects:55d031688ac042fabc71ac417907920e5dc0fefc?src=embed
    12 mins 25 secs : November 15th, 2021 : Randy Hillier

    The first shot started with spasms and pain, the second led to a 15 day long menstrual cycle, and the problems didn’t stop there.
    Kirstie has always received her vaccines and was under the same impression that the COVID jab would be like all the others, well tested and completely safe.
    Unfortunately it appears adverse effects are not being reported and as such Kirstie is now suffering what appears to be adverse effects. …

    Calls for a criminal investigation, to the police about the vaccine injuries.
    It is a criminal offence if some-one uses deception to cause harm or injury or fatality to people.
    That could be considered to be gaining consent by deception by not properly informing the person to be vaccinated.
    Public health has not recognized some of these injuries and so appears to be hiding some of these injuries from the public.

    The same old position of no or very little support for one who suffers side effects.

    I can see another angle, for not being vaxxed, is that the time of having to wait to see a Doctor can be horrendous, while you painfully suffer. Waiting lists for months & months, to see a specialist.
    Nor do the Doctors understand what is happening or are able to treat, what may be considered non hospitalizing while you suffer very badly, and so not rated as a serious adverse serious side effect. It may even be permanent.

    • Vax passports:

      Definition:
      A document that confirms you have been vaccinated against a virus that is ‘not a virus’, with a vaccine that is ‘not a vaccine’, for a series of ‘not a virus’ variants, that you can only get directly, by being vaccinated with ‘not a vaccine’ or indirectly from someone who is vaccinated with ‘not a vaccine’;

      And where said ‘not a virus’ infection or ‘not a vaccine’ infection, could easily be treated with existing medications that have been banned at the request of the ‘not a vaccine’ manufacturers;

      And where tyrannical govt leaders are mandating and enforcing both the ‘not a vaccines’ and banning existing medications in return for cash rewards.

  32. It’s starting. Australia get the cold we get the pneumonia.
    7NEWS Australia published this video item, entitled “Privium Homes stops work on their construction sites | 7NEWS” – below is their description.

    The dreams of hundreds of families are in limbo with a major home builder, seemingly, on the verge of collapse.

    Privium Homes suddenly stopped all work last week, leaving customers in 3 states without answers and fearing they’re about to lose tens of thousands of dollars.

    https://theglobalherald.com/news/privium-homes-stops-work-on-their-construction-sites-7news/

    Meanwhile our erstwhile Kiwibank has just dumped many of its customer right into the deep pond. along with more than a few builders I would comment.

    Apparently Kiwibank has announced that they are withdrawing low-deposit home loan pre-approvals today.

    As per the article:
    “Kiwibank is withdrawing preapprovals – that’s unprecedented. It hasn’t been seen since ASB back during the GFC cancelled about $1 billion of preapprovals,” said Loan Market mortgage adviser Bruce Patten.

    https://www.interest.co.nz/business/113231/review-things-you-need-know-you-go-home-tuesday-some-majors-raise-rates-inflation

    1 billion of pre approvals. That’s few houses at an average of say $800k. 1250 roughly.

    The reason is obvious though. Our nett migration for the last 12 months was 800. we built and have in the pipeline around 70000+ houses. At 2.3 average occupancy that needs 30400 add buyers to fill them up.

    Here we go again.
    Just went up to our big new industrial estate this afternoon. Buildings going up like no tomorrow. Investors piling in. Rents, well out of this world at the moment.
    Be a crunch next year because lots of them are building related tenants.

    • One unfortunate soul on a FHB Facebook page received a revised conditional pre-approval at 90% LVR, satisfied that they had met the conditions decided to go unconditional on the sale, only to find Kiwibank has pulled the pin later that day.

      Suspect a lawyer was not involved in the process, as a pre-approval does not = offer of finance does not = unconditional offer of finance.

    Dairy industry champion and former National Cabinet minister John Luxton dies
    Former National Cabinet minister and dairy industry leader John Luxton has died aged 75.

    Born into a Waikato dairy farming family, Luxton, CNZM QSO, was a Member of Parliament from 1987 until his retirement from politics in 2002. As a Cabinet minister he held many portfolios including housing, energy, commerce, industry, police, lands, forestry, food and fibre, Māori Affairs, agriculture and fisheries.

    At the time of his death after an illness, he had recently retired as chair of the Asia NZ Foundation, was chair of the large-scale dairying Pouarua Farm Partnership, and Crown appointee co-chair of the Waikato River Authority, a role he had served in since 2011.

    Luxton was chairman of dairy industry advocate organisation DairyNZ from 2008 to 2015, and had a long governance association and farming interests with blue-chip Waikato dairy company Tatua.

    A former World Bank consultant, he was a co-founder of the Open Country Cheese company, formed after dairy industry export deregulation in 2001, and which has grown to become Open Country Dairy, New Zealand’s second-largest dairy processor and exporter after Fonterra.

    The Broadcasting Standards Authority have just announced that blasphemy is now fair game and they won’t consider complaints about it any more – but only one particular faith can be blasphemed against. Guess which one?
    “BLASPHEMY: The Authority acknowledges that when broadcasts feature exclamations of words associated with ‘God’, ‘Jesus’, ‘Christ’, ‘Hell’ and the Christian faith, some people might find this offensive. However, these words are not considered to be coarse language and in our modern secular society have become widely used as part of everyday speech. The Authority has consistently found variations of ‘Jesus’ and ‘Christ’ used as exclamations do not threaten widely shared community standards of good taste and decency.”
    https://www.bsa.govt.nz/…/complaints-that-are-unlikely…/
    Note that they don’t include “Islam faith” or “Muhammad” or any other words associated with various faiths.
    Now why is that?
