Knives and Scissors removed from shelves in NZ after attack


Which is the bigger story? New Zealand’s “loose immigration enforcement” or having their citizens eating and preparing meals with a plastic knife? How about locking down your people over COVID? Take your pick. While we concern ourselves with protecting our second amendment, we would be wise keeping our eye on what the Aussies and New Zealanders are doing. The left is in full bloom. It could come to a town near us.

Knives and scissors have been removed from supermarket shelves in New Zealand after a recent stabbing attack. Supermarket chain Countdown said on Saturday, a partial “knife control” would be in effect for several weeks to prevent stabbing attacks going forward.

This decision came after a Sri Lankan national injured six people at a Countdown location in Auckland last Friday. Authorities said the attacker was inspired by the Islamic State to carry out the attack.

The left-wing cabinet of Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has admitted loose immigration enforcement allowed the attacker to live in New Zealand.

New York Times:

The police in New Zealand are establishing checkpoints south of Auckland, the country’s largest city, to prevent people from moving illegally between regions with different levels of virus restrictions.

“The checkpoints on the outskirts of Auckland will be stopping vehicles and questioning drivers, ensuring there is no nonessential movement through the region,” said Andrew Coster, the country’s police commissioner, in a statement.

New York Post:

Australia’s insane COVID rules are a warning to the rest of the Free World

Lockdowns have cut a swathe through the norms and conventions of an advanced Western democracy, from the suspension of a state-level parliament, to the banning of protests, to military enforcement of the COVID rules.

Australian authorities don’t fool around. State premiers have vast powers, and use them. In Melbourne, located in the state of Victoria, a curfew is in place, and limits apply to people leaving their homes. There are hefty fines for non-compliance.

The state of South Australia has developed an app to enforce home quarantines. As a news report explains, “The app will contact people at random asking them to provide proof of their location within 15 minutes.” If they fail to do so, the health department will notify the police, who will send officers to check on the malefactor.

Unrestricted travel is a hallmark of a free society, but Australians can barely leave the country. Travel has been cut off between states, creating an arbitrary patchwork of states trying to isolate themselves from COVID cases elsewhere.

Tens of thousands of Australians have been trapped overseas, unable to come back home because of monthly limits on how many people can return.

My thoughts:

I am of a certain age when as kids there were no vaccines for measles, mumps, chicken pox. We became sick, got well and when well went back to school. We went to school through the 1957 flu epidemic. No school was shut down, we simply soldiered on. Yes some kids did have adverse and lasting effects from the diseases. But the proportion was small, and the good of the whole outweighed the enormous cost of massively restructuring our society. There was not one thought of it.

Am I an anti vacciner? Not particularly. Though it needs to be a choice for parents in my mind. Especially the COVID vaccine. There is a reason that it usually takes almost a decade for approvals. The clinical trials participants have kids, years go by and is needed to determine the safety of a medication or vaccine. If one is at risk and at a certain age group it makes sense to me to have the Covid vaccine. All vaccines and medications have risk. Risk versus reward. That is how the game of life is played.

For the best in conservative new push the button. Welcome readers from Whatfinger news!

    An Aussie friend who was staying with me for a month had to leave fast because her dad has only a few weeks…to live…..she spent FOURTEEN THOU on her business class ticket (only 2 seats were finally open and both were in B.C.) for the next night…(and had to pay extra for WIFI!)…that’s on American Airlines…..which charges so much because AUSTRALIA IS ONLY ACCEPTING FLIGHTS WITH 50 PEOPLE ON THEM…SOMETIMES ONLY 35… She then had to go into 2 wk total quarantine in a hotel whose name they wouldn’t give them in the shuttle from the plane until them got there! AND she’s working hard with doctors’ letters, etc., to GET TO HER DAD. This is NOT uncommon, even with dying relatives! AND she has to get to Melbourne, where they’ve had something like TEN cases!!
    The hotel is a mandatory $3K for the room and horrid food (tofu salad was one lunch)…no choices.

    INSANITY….I think my friend Natalia, who is an ARMORIST (did 10 years on GAME OF THRONES) is about to USE arms on some of these fascists! 🙂

    That beknighted country East of Socialist Down Under and given a moniker of a useless, flightless bird, is truly a godawful place to live. Even Damon couldn’t wait to move back to the USA.

    Bunker,

    I have looked at the top photo since a little before 7:00 a.m. CDT and did not notice until now the cut of meat on the plate.

    Is that New Zealander cutting a plate of ribs with a knife and fork? If he is, he should be drawn and quartered in barbeque sauce.

    There are no legal or political solutions to spiritual problems. The progressive fallacy is that you can legislate your way out of a collapsing culture.

    Guns, knives, explosives, hammers, shovels, ballpoint pens, forks, spoons, tire irons, rocks, baseball/cricket bats, and motor vehicles. All of these things can be used to murder people. Should a civilized society ban these items, as well? You know — just in case? Or would common sense suggest that rather than punishing people who aren’t criminal psychopaths, close borders to those who are? If a particular group of people poses a clear and present danger to society, should they be allowed to remain in society, or should a responsible government deport them? Hmmm. Wow, this is perplexing.

    So, how long have pigeons been running New Zealand and Australia?

    Darn, Bunker, you scooped me.

    I was just going with the leaked email that shows Biden’s State Department has been blocking private evacuation of Christians and Americans/translators from Afghanistan. Fox News even came up with satellite images of the rumored 6 private jets on the tarmac in Kabul.

    How did you find this one on plastic knives and forks in New Zealand? Do you have a pipeline to down under?
