    ILG ‘s immigration worries pale into insignificance to the ongoing Kiwibuild issue.


    Two sensible suggestions by Bernard Hickey….drive the market down and build a heap of state housing….both anathema to neolibs, (and it appears Labour)

    • BM 2.1

      Kiwibuild was a shit idea first floated when Shearer was Labour party leader.

      It’s nonsense, it’s a criminal waste of money and opportunity, but because of ego and just general stupidity, Labour will persist with the bull shit that is kiwi build.

      Real opportunity here to do great stuff but you’re such amateurs you’ve completely fucked it up and Kiwi build will end up being the noose that hangs this pathetic government.

        Good job they’re not pros like the Gnats eh. The fuckwits who sat on their hands for nine years. Mind, going by Key’s hammer skills, probably safer for everyone doing nothing.

    • Bill 2.2

      What iceberg? This flagship is unsinkable!

    Forced birth extremists are people, too.

    UPDATE, November 7, 4:50 p.m.: The U.S. Departments of Health and Human Services (HHS), Treasury, and Labor announced Wednesday “two final rules to provide conscience protections for Americans who have a religious or moral objection to health insurance” that covers contraception, according to a press release from HHS. “The religious and moral exemptions provided by these rules also apply to institutions of education, issuers, and individuals,” the release said.

    Just like everybody’s favourite drunkle.

    my favorite way to listen to the president is slowed down to 1/2 speed because it reveals how often times his logic is indistinguishable from that of a drunk person: pic.twitter.com/QiUb4CQdU9— Arlen Parsa voted! (@arlenparsa) November 7, 2018

    (the VP doesn’t swear anybody into Congress).

    If you feel sad today, just imagine Mike Pence swearing 2 women into Congress with the Qur'an— Shahed Amanullah (@shahed) November 7, 2018

    Paul Craig Roberts’ opinion.
    Thought provoking.

    ‘What This Election Is About’

    “I never cease to be amazed at the insouciance of Americans. Readers send me emails asking why I ever supported Trump when he was the Establishment’s candidate. If Trump was the Establishment’s candidate, why has the Establishment spent two years trying to destroy him?
    The failure to put two and two together is extraordinary. Trump declared war on the Establishment throughout the presidential campaign and in his inaugural address.
    As I wrote at the time, Trump vastly over-estimates the power of the president. He expected the Establishment, like his employees, to jump to his will, and he did not know Washington or who to appoint to support his goals. He has been totally defeated in his intention to normalize relations with Russia. Instead, we are faced with both Russia and China preparing for war.
    In other words, the same outcome that Hillary would have achieved……

    “So what is this midterm US election about?

    It is about whether “the deplorables” have been brainwashed by the Establishment’s media whores and fail to support Trump in the House and Senate elections. If the Democrats, whose politics is Identity Politics, get the House and/or Senate, Trump will be completely impotent. The Establishment hopes to drive the lesson home to every future presidential candidate to never again appeal to the people over the vested interests of the Establishment.

    In America democracy is a scam. The oligarchy rules, and the people, no matter how they suffer under the oligarch’s rule, must submit and accept. No more presidential candidates, please, who represent the people. This is the lesson that the Establishment hopes to teach the rabble in the midterm elections.
    What should this election be about? If America had an independent media, the election would be about the dangerous situation created by Washington that has caused two militarily powerful countries to prepare for war with the US. This is the most serious development of my lifetime.

    If America had an independent media, the election would be about the American police state that, based on the 9/11 lie, the weapons of mass destruction lie, the use of chemical weapons lie, the Iranian nukes lie, the Russian invasion of Ukraine lie, was accepted by the insouciant Americans. Those responsible for these lies, which have caused massive war crimes, for which US administrations should be indicted, are feted and rich. The rest of us have experienced the loss of civil liberty and privacy. Any individual in the way of the police state is mowed down.

    If America had an independent media, the election would be about the de-industrialization of the United States. Today, as this article makes clear—https://thesaker.is/the-pentagon-realised-what-it-has-done-the-chinese-put-the-us-army-on-its-knees/ —the offshoring of American manufacturing and industry has reduced the US military to dependence on Chinese suppliers.“
