    • In contrast, Australia is working hard at creating crispy humans, thanks to the fires all around the land…

  1. NEW ZEALAND: Belatedly …is the severely dysfunctional Christchurch City Council going to be sorted ? …

    Ombudsman asks Christchurch’s mayoral adviser not to attend meeting … Tina Law … The Press / Stuff

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/news/117534680/ombudsman-asks-christchurchs-mayoral-adviser-not-to-attend-meeting

    An adviser to the Christchurch Mayor is no longer attending weekly meetings where official information requests are discussed after concerns raised by the country’s top watchdog. … read more via hyperlink above …

    Paulson (Pavletich) comments on thread …

    The video interview with Mayor Lianne Dalziel and CE Dawn Baxendale is particularly encouraging.

    If that interview is any guide, Baxendale could well be the essential ‘breath of fresh air’ this long – term severely dysfunctional Council needs, to start on the path of dealing effectively with its structural and cultural issues.

  2. War on climate won? much fewer extreme weather incidents in 2019…. If we extrapolate every weather incident to mean that the world will end in 12 years / why can we not extrapolate a whole full year of weather data?

    (Just before I’m hyperventilated on – I believe in risk mitigation where possible regardless of the opposing climate cults)

    CNN news…the alternative set of “facts”
    ” Sondland tied Ukrainian investigations into Hunter Biden and Burisma as a condition of receiving security aid from the US.”

    You see why they are called fake news?

    Why do they do it?
    Control of narrative = control of public opinion
    Control of public opinion = power
    How do you control the narrative?
    Information warfare.

    • Thanks for posting this stuff IP, it’s been quite a live show to watch. And the Be Quiet Australians (or whoever) are that bamboozled they don’t know what to say – their silence is manufactured consent.

        Colin….what we are witnessing is the tortured removal of a festering scab called mass media control.
        Just think on this…….what is there to hide that requires such intense coordinated defence?

      Q

    • what is really amazing that there are people out there who still believe that Bidens, Bushes, Pelosis, Trumps, … are not totally corrupt
      getting rid of Biden and Pelosi would be the best thing happening to Democrats since Johnsons divorce from Southern Democrats

        “what is really amazing that there are people out there who still believe that Bidens, Bushes, Pelosis, Trumps, … are not totally corrupt”

        You are far closer to reality if you invert everything the media tell you. Up = down, good = evil, black = white, light = darkness.

        To be fair, society has been soaking in propaganda for decades. How do you break the link?
        Enjoy the show.
