    Awesome photo, what’s the story?

    Toot! toot! Heres Johnny driving a bus over McClay, I wonder how he likes them peas!

      Heh! McClay dancing on the head of a pin. The PM should be congratulating him for being such an attentive student.

    Is that her son?

    Anyway, it turns out that in order to get tax exempt charity status you need to be very specific. You can’t just start raising money for AIDS, Haiti, etc etc when your stated purpose was to fund presidential campaign.

    It’s looking like a federal offense has been committed. Many, many times by the flithy Clinton Foundation. Check out the interview

    Pagani reckons Trump is bankrolled by Russian money as no US bank will fund him because he’s been bankrupt that many times.

    Pagani reckons Russian govt is hacking the Clinton campaign and feeding to Wikileaks.

    Pagani reckons Russia is deeply embedded in and influential over the US presidential election.

      Going to be very hard to put that genie back in it’s bottle. Freehold house owners must feel rather smug right now.

      • Muttonbird 5.1.1

        There’s been a horrible money grab in the last few years and I expect to see NZ plummet down the social, health, education, security, and corruption rankings in the years to come because of it.

    The government has announced its intention to make New Zealand predator-free by 2050.

    Looks like the National Party’s days are numbered. 🙂

      Cat killers 😉

      • Muttonbird 6.1.1

        Yep. They’ll have to ban themselves if they are to achieve their goal.

        • Pasupial 6.1.1.1

          NRT has a good take on this policy announcement:

          The really amusing bit is the long-term. Their policy includes the line that by 2025, “we will have developed a breakthrough science solution capable of removing at least one small mammal predator from the mainland entirely”

          Leaving aside the questions of whether they’re promising biological warfare on rats and stoats, to introduce a new predator to eat them (because we know how well that worked out in the past), or just to build a better mousetrap, this isn’t policy so much as wishful thinking. Its the policy equivalent of “I will win the lottery”, or maybe “Baby Jesus will ride in on a sparkly unicorn, wave his magic wand, and make this problem disappear”. In other words, not real. If this is their policy, then it is simply not going to happen.

    • Michelle 6.2

      We will be predator free when we get rid of this government they are the biggest predators them and there 1% mates

    Isaac Davidson now chief pimp for the Key government following on from his invitation on the Indonesian tour.

    These embedded journalists can be bought and sold so easily.

    Are facts even important anymore?

    Trump’s campaign may be most despised for the; “racial hate he stirred up in the bloodpot of human hearts”. But the worst thing may prove to be his utter disregard for external reality. I could say a lot against Clinton, but at worst it comes down to; she is evil. Trump on the other hand seems literally insane, and it is now infecting the entire Republican establishment.

    The relevant portion of this clip is the 6 minutes following the 3:17 timepoint. But the whole is worth watching (but then so is the rest of the show too):
