SpaceX is ready for the first launch of its Falcon Heavy rocket. It will be capable of launching 54 metric tons into orbit, twice that of any other operational orbital vehicle and at one-third the cost. Elon Musk announced via Twitter that the launch would take place early next year from Cape ...

In response to my article about the Golriz Ghahraman I received a number of claims that she had done no wrong and never attempted to hide or embellish her life's story. This is easily disproved and David Farrar created a list so that I don't have to: 1. Nov 16 – Green newsletter. Says “worked as a ...

When you read a headline like " Gun shop urges parents to buy their children weapons to 'keep them active' ", some people might get worried. The headline of course, is fake news. The advertisement was put in Wellington letterboxes by Gun City, promoting a deal on an air rifle for supervised ...

It's not really a problem when you've never lived under enemy fire, worked as a defense attorney for war criminals, posed for photos with said war criminals, and co-authored a paper denying genocide. It's just a problem when your life is presented as being the opposite of what it really is. Where ...

This letter was submitted to the Minister of Police and the NZ Police in response to a number of proposed changes in police policy around the secure storage of firearms. I believe these proposed changes to be illegal and ultimately ineffective and am disappointed by the way that the police treat ...
Welsh Assembly

Your humble correspondent is currently on a visit to the Land of Song, where presumably the All Blacks will dish out another rugby lesson in a week or so. After an informative visit to the Welsh Assembly today, I’m also hoping it’s not just rugby in which Kiwis could instruct my compatriots, but ...

I consider Mark Steyn to be one of the best and most relevant commentators of our time. His words are almost always on point and his books from a decade ago read like prophetic visions of a dark future fast becoming reality. In his blog post, The Triumph of Amoral Will , he sums up the scene.

The fireworks seem louder and brighter than last year. Maybe it was just the new neighbours, but we certainly got the impression that the horizon looked and sounded more spectacular this year. The fun police get louder every year and you never know when they could ban the celebration.

The new government is facing what the New Zealand Herald have described as its "first international crisis", after European Union ambassador Bernard Savage condemned the government's plans to reopen trade negotiations with Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan. Quoth the article, At a briefing on Tuesday ...
Jacinda Ardern Communist
by Owen LLewellyn · 29/10/2017 7pm
With Jacinda Ardern duly sworn in as Prime Minister, what can we expect to see over the next 3 or more years? In a nutshell: more government, more taxes, and more centralised control. You won’t be surprised to hear any of that, but we can also expect more poverty. “No. Surely not,” you point out. “ ...

For nearly a month after the election, this country did not have a government. There were continuous stories about how Winston Peters was keeping everyone waiting and that he should just hurry up. There were any number of coalition options possible, but since a "Grand Coalition" and a "Blue Green" ...

Just over a month ago, on the 22nd of September, Facebook suspended the Make New Zealand Great Again page for "hate speech". There is of course, no real way to appeal such a decision and no way to get in touch with a real person at Facebook who can do something about it. Two days later, there was ...

No one has ever accused NZ First leader Winston Peters of being politically correct, and that tradition is likely to continue after he made some inflammatory statements earlier today. In his latest interview , Peters responded to a question about David Seymour wanting to abolish the Department of ...

A few weeks ago I created a graph of almost every political party in New Zealand history, to show how most of them were formed by merging with other ones and that political parties are almost always formed by coalescing with other parties, rather than as new movements on their own: Parties ...
ACT New Zealand needs to hit the reset button big time and it will be much easier to do that in opposition.  They need to get back to their roots and be loud and proud as the Libertarian/Classical Liberal voice of New Zealand.

ACT will not be part of any coalition government this term. Good. ACT New Zealand needs to hit the reset button big time and it will be much easier to do that in opposition. They need to get back to their roots and be loud and proud as the Libertarian/Classical Liberal voice of New Zealand. Their ...

The 2017 election result has seen Winston Peters and New Zealand First become the "kingmaker" - however, preliminary information on voter demographics suggests that the people who put NZ First into Parliament in 2017 are not the same people who put them there in 2011 and 2014. Although the full ...

It's considered by many to be the most unpredictable election in a generation, but Right Minds NZ's Alex Eastwood-Williams attempts to predict the unpredictable election. This has been probably the rockiest and most unpredictable election campaign in my lifetime, with wide discrepancies between ...

When I look at politics in the 21st century, I'm reminded of one of my all-time favourite quotes by Ronald Reagan: " You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. " Although it's a line from a speech ...

Tim Wilms from The Unshackled is in New Zealand to observe our election first-hand, and his report on the Labour Party is spot on. Jacinda has focused on two issues: more taxes and abortion on demand. Post-birth abortion for the elderly is also on the table. Issues regarding the economy, tax and ...

Many may be familiar with the e-commerce giant Alibaba, but about a month ago I was introduced to their more small scale AliExpress . While compared to Amazon. features a similar experience to eBay or Trademe. Unlike the regular business-to-business Alibaba store, AliExpress allows you to buy just ...
