The news-cycle in NZ and the US are closely linked, so when a woman opened fire at YouTube HQ in California, it was news over here just as fast. Social media was hoping that the elusive "Trump supporter, NRA member, and Alex Jones fan" mass shooter had finally been discovered.
Sir Bob Jones

Satire, political or social pisstakery is in a sorry state, both at home and abroad in this year of our Lord, 2018. Locally, shrill hordes have demanded via social media organized petitioning that Sir Robert Jones suffer a status reduction back to plain old ‘Bob Jones’, for the crime of taking the mick out of Maori.

Early morning on Saturday 31st March, just north of Auckland, a man was shot after he threatened the police with a machete. From what we know, it's a pretty clear-cut case.

Maybe Thirty odd hardy souls (including officials and spectators) sat through the third reading of the Taxation (Annual Rates for 2017–18, Employment and Investment Income, and Remedial Matters) Bill on Tuesday night. Not a title designed to either draw a crowd or inspire the loftiest rhetoric, but ...

This was said a year ago by Julius Malema, a political party leader who has long been calling for the "land expropriation" that is now coming into effect. Apartheid is returning to South Africa.

When I wrote about the Iranian hand-shake affair , I was not expecting to be revisiting this topic so quickly, but this story about a senior staff member being fired from the University of Auckland caught my attention. The incident took place a year ago, but only now has a memo been sent out to all ...

On his first day as National Party leader, when confronted by a media inquisition, Bridges recanted his stance on gay "marriage". Hang on a minute: he wasn't actually asked about it. He just volunteered that information out of the blue.

When preparing for a meeting with the Iranian ambassador, a female Labour MP was told not to shake his hand as this would be inappropriate. The problem with this "handshake snub" by the Iranian delegation isn't one of cultural understanding.

Step one: Open a Krispy Kreme in South Auckland. That's it. Just check the local rags the next day to see how well you did.

Last year I wrote about the demographics of the west as the controversy raged about how it was so inappropriate to ask Jacinda if she was going to have a baby. Never mind that she had told us she wanted a baby.

The new Labour-led government’s plans for its first 100 days has a depressing inevitability about it. Various lollies handed out to key voting blocks - students get the first year of tertiary education free and an extra $50 a week living allowance; family allowances to increase, and sundry other measures with cost implications

This is a review of "Mohammed's Koran", a book that succinctly and convincingly exposes The Grand Lie: that Islam is a religion of peace. For centuries Western scholars have known and experienced that Islam is a religion of war. For over a thousand years, Mohammed and his followers have spread their ideology via violent jihad, killing countless millions and subjugating millions more.If you want a Koran for your library, this is the one you should buy.

2017 has been a deeply disappointing year for those of us on the right-wing or populist end of the political spectrum, with the hard-won victories of 2016 turning to a bitter counter-attack from the establishment in 2017. Though one could be fooled by the sudden rise of Emmanuel Macron and Jacinda ...

While David Seymour continued his pushed for euthanasia over the last year, I've been reading John Locke's Two Treatises on Government. I had never read the original source of this philosophy from the Father of Liberalism himself. While reading the works of John Locke, I realised that most professed classical liberals probably haven't either.

There was outrage when it was announced that New Zealand had selected a man to be in our international weightlifting team, but the gamble has paid off with Hubbard bringing home a gold medal from the Australian Open and now a silver medal from the World Championships, both a historic first for our ...
