    • Dr. Siouxsie Wiles Supports the Worst People in America By Olivia Pierson As America descends into brutal anarchy and violence under the banners of Black Lives Matter and the leftist pseudo paramilitary group ANTIFA, it is obvious that this rage and violence has absolutely nothing to do with the death of poor George Floyd.     This is not a righteous cause, it’s a manipulated one. In fact, more than anything it resembles Kristallnacht in Germany 1938: “The pretext for the pogroms was the shooting in Paris on November 7 of the German diplomat Ernst vom Rath by a Polish-Jewish student, Herschel Grynszpan. News of Rath’s death on November 9 reached Adolf Hitler in Munich. There, Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels, after conferring with Hitler, harangued a gathering of old storm troopers, urging violent reprisals staged to appear as “spontaneous demonstrations.” Telephone orders from Munich triggered pogroms throughout Germany, which then included Austria.” Whites and business owners today – capitalists of all ethnicities – are the new “Jews” to these rampaging zoo animals who feel emboldened to smash up shops, steal the loot and bash-up the owners who try to protect their livelihoods on the back of their businesses barely surviving the bizarre, recent lockdown event.    The Left has been the enemy of the Free World for a long time, simmering with thinly veiled hatred toward anyone with a dissenting view – let alone anyone wearing a MAGA hat; violence has been lurking under the surface and frequently breaks out.  But now, that simmering enmity has exploded out into society – cops are being killed, cars set aflame, peoples’ lives and bodies are being broken and bloodied. These anarchists are now calling for the police force to be defunded by the federal government, just as they have called for border control and ICE to be defunded in the past. Imagine America with no police, no border controls and these thugs tearing around unchecked like savages with rabies – not exactly the Garden of Eden.  Disgustingly, in New Zealand, even during our ridiculously drawn out lockdown level two, 4000 protestors descended onto Aotea Square in copy-cat “solidarity” with the Black Lives Matter movement – even though that group along with ANTIFA are behind ginning-up all the violence in the U.S.  These protests and riots are being fuelled using the emotions of angry, bored, indoctrinated young people who have suffered a weird and legally suspicious lockdown, yet we’re meant to believe this is all about grief and anger over the tragic death of George Floyd! Please, spare us.  New Zealand’s Dr. Siouxsie Wiles, one of the most attention seeking indoctrinators of our country and our Prime Minister’s favourite microbiologist, despite, or maybe because of, her heinously high-viz, post-modernly woke hair – encourages New Zealanders to support Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA terrorists by tweeting out to Kiwis the websites with payment options for us to send money to the U.S to help pay the bail of these looters, bashers and violent anarchists who have now hurt, maimed and even killed people. Let that sink in. Dr. Siouxsie Wiles has been publicly calling for Kiwis to help the causes of Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA, and giving encouragement to the protesters in Auckland for those causes, even though they flouted the social distancing rules that she herself preached about in order to prolong a strict, Covid-conscious lockdown, where gatherings of more than 100 people are still forbidden by law.   When the crowds got so big in Aotea square on Monday’s public holiday, the tone of Dr. Siouxsie’s tweets changed to one of “I’m so gutted” that social distancing wasn’t being observed “please self isolate” – as if she really gave a stuff after pushing the whole BLM agenda. Many of these violent thugs in the U.S were arrested in the mornings following the uncontrollable night riots, only to be let out by the afternoon on bails, which have been met with donated money which Dr. Siouxsie may have helped to raise. The BFD George Floyd’s killers have been arrested, charged and will soon stand trial for murder, so don’t tell me this has all been about “injustice.”  That’s ginned-up rubbish and we know it – if you don’t know it, wise-up and quit being foolish. We live in the Information Age for goodness sake – ignorance is on us. If black lives matter so much to the Black Lives Matter movement and ANTIFA, why are 76% of the murders of black men in America committed by other black men? Do you think Dr. Siouxsie, or anyone else in NZ and the U.S, can remember the name of Jazmine Barnes, the little 7-year old girl shot in the head in January 2019 while riding in a car with her family outside a Walmart store – shot by a young black gang member in Houston? There are many, many kids who die this way in America, all at the hands of black men (or black women), but they’re ignored by the mainstream media: Here’s a small sampling:  “In March 2015, a 6-year-old boy was killed in a drive-by shooting in St. Louis, as Black Lives Matter protesters were converging on the Ferguson, Mo., Police Department to demand the resignation of the entire ­department. In August 2015, a 9-year-old girl was killed by a bullet from a drive-by shooting in Ferguson while doing her homework in her bedroom, blocks from the Black Lives Matter rioting. Five children were shot in Cleveland over the 2015 Fourth of July weekend. Also in Cleveland, three children 5 and younger were killed in September 2015, leading the black ­police chief to break down in tears and ask why the community only protests shootings of blacks when the perpetrator is a cop. In November 2015, a 9-year-old in Chicago was lured into an alley and killed by his father’s gang enemies; the father ­refused to cooperate with the police. Ten children under the age of 10 were killed in Baltimore in 2015; 12 victims were between the ages of 10 and 17. In 2016, a ­3-year-old girl in Baltimore was partially paralyzed by a drive-by shooting. In Chicago in 2016, two dozen children ­under the age of 12 were shot in drive-bys, including a 3-year-old boy mowed down on Father’s Day 2016, who is now paralyzed for life, and a 10-year-old boy shot in August; his pancreas, intestines, kidney and spleen were torn apart. A Jacksonville 22-month-old was shot to death by a passing car last June. In September, three men killed 3-year-old Azalya Anderson in a drive-by in Sacramento, and a week before Christmas in Bridgeport, a ­12-year-old boy was killed on his way home from the candy store in a drive-by shooting.” Yet, watching today’s protesters speak to camera (if you can call it speaking) they repeat empty-headed bromides like: “There’s a black genocide going on at the hands of whites!”   “Stop killing us!” they say.  “Black people are being murdered by police everyday,” they claim.  Black genocide?  Verily, that’s unhinged. The only thing close to a black genocide going on today is the African-American abortion rate, where officially more black babies are aborted, in all three trimesters of gestation, than are allowed to be born. That unpalatable fact aside, here’s another reality check: only ten cases of unarmed black persons were fatally shot in the year 2019 by police – ten. This, in a country with a population of 330 million!  Out of those ten, five were adjudicated to be in self defence, one was an accidental discharge of a firearm in a policeman’s pocket, two resulted in policemen being criminally charged for manslaughter or murder – which leaves just two cases where there was possible malevolent intent on behalf of police that was just glossed over.  Some of these sick anarchists from the Black Lives Matter movement are running around demanding that “white-folks” literally get down on their knees and apologise for their “white privilege.”  And some very dopey, wokey white-folks do as they’re told. Tucker Carlson covers this in an extraordinarily painful editorial. The right to assemble for the purpose of petitioning your government for a redress of grievances is an important liberty in a free country – and I’m all for that.  But looting, arson, beating people, killing people and smashing up their businesses is not a bloody protest.  It is criminal nihilism which wants a war – and indeed should be met with one in the form of overwhelming force by police, the National Guard and the military, if necessary.   Thuggery is not to be respected, tolerated, nor bowed to by ordinary folks of any skin colour who desire a decent civilisation for themselves and their progeny to thrive in. https://youtu.be/1qwif8PF1EI?t=11       
    • Well the great web site touted as having more options. M50 was a meeting from France with this time a good lead up on Trackside. Sorted out Grey Way. Really with a name like that a stand out. Looked like Grey Way of old as well. Went to website and no meeting 50. Seems the website can't handle a race with tote betting only although the result is there.  Must assume the race was only available over the counter at the TAB's which are closed.  Grey Way ran just like the old Grey Way leading all the way.  
    • No hope for the gormless.
    • I think government and industry appointed commissioners with the ability and experience to sort this mess out would be better. They need to be people that can connect and listen to the grassroots as well.  Sounds like people like Peter Johnstone in Barry Lichter's link above would be a good person to listen and talk to for starters.  It is hard to see how the industry is going to recover without government help in the sort term so I wouldn't let the government off the hook especially when this train wreck has been driven by government appoint officials, bureaucrats and Ministers of Racing that have mostly been missing in action. Winstone might have got a hospital pass on this one from Nathan Guy but he has totally dropped the ball and should stand down as he created RITA and it has gone from bad to worse under his watch. I feel really sorry for the people that have lost their jobs in the TAB and suspect that the ones that should have gone are still there. 
    • big 24 hours for trump ohoka dow and job numbers through the roof..... and your guys latest brain wave lets defund the police force..... the gift that keeps giving mad left wing ideology..... crazy stuff ohoka......    
    • So the guts of it Lachie is to put the Racing Board/RITA under Administration presumably reporting to the Justice Department.  No Minister of Racing involved.  Your comments on the RIU are interesting as is the comment that the game is widespread crook  Interesting  
    • That Guy with the robe walking behind Donny must be a Democrat aye , well deserved ;)
    • just one question, what benefits does the tab or racing get from being on sky like does it cost or save money from free to air , aint they on spark as well
    • Attached is my media statement  on what should be done which has been already posted by another member under another topic.   Racing Industry In Crisis.pdf
    • Excellent article. People in the industry need to take note of this and do something about it before it is all too late.  I would also like to respond to members who were asking about my background as New Conservative's spokesperson for racing. My background includes working as a stableman for 18 months for Henry Skinner in Southland. Obtaining my own private trainer's and open horseman's licence and training a couple of horses before or after work. Serving on the committee of the Roxburgh Trotting Club as well as being an active member of the Central Otago Owners, Trainers and Breeders Assn.  I have also owned two thoroughbred broodmares. I know nothing about greyhound racing but am willing to listen and learn.
    • Ok, didnt address much.  Nothing to see here ???? https://youtu.be/8alro6mjcsU
    • Agree Shane it will survive but in a different format - a return to the good days is a pure dream They are totally isolating their punting base, they don't know who their current customers are, let alone create new customers. They have lost their way.  Very sad
    • The last couple of saturdays I have been enjoying the racing coverage from Aus on channel7 as they have had it on free to air and able to be picked up on a few apps like freeflixhq .Their coverage is totally unobstructed , focussing on all races from randwick flemington and doomben today and having proper lead ups and post race summaries for the big three meetings with virtually no annoying graphics spoiling the view .BEST EVER.Ihope they extend the 6 week term.It is ironic that it seems to be provided by sky and the tab but it is so much better than what they provide to their paying subscribers,go figure
    • Brilliant. Needs to cover the sports betting  impact as the growth of cash invested by sports bettors does not give stable returns and needs events to be settled in favour of the TAB to even break even.
    • Hi Greg Racing might survive but it will be more South Africa racing type survival.....our races downgraded, our stud book’s deteriorated.    They are killing the romance of a bet. 
    • Shane I trust you can persuade RITA to have a few on course operators, if they are removed in toto I can see a huge drop of on course turnover RITA are not dealing with the likely fallout, they have to have some common sense dropped on them 
    • A TAB accountant of 16 years laments its sad decline and gives some great insight into what really happened.   https://www.lincolnfarms.co.nz/stories/the-numbers-dont-lie-accountant-follows-the-money-to-find-where-the-tab-went-wrong/
