    The jew-hater:

    The Palestinians Arabs and Israelis are genetically related. In other words the Palestinians Arabs are largely decedents of Jews and Christians who converted.

    So waves of invasion over 4000 years through one of the world’s premier tarde routes had nothing to do with genetic mixing? (We’ve got written records of the Battle of Kadesh in 1274BC FFS and we know it was at the end of a military campaign 150 years long!)

    Who knew that nobody lived there until Christians turned up?

    This is the sort of cretinous idiocy that happens when you get your worldview from Green Left Weekly and Die Sturmer.

    How fascinating is your view of reality, sdfc.

    You DO know that Jewish Israelis marry Christian Arabs and vice versa and that the Crusaders complained about this, don’t you? You do know that muslim arabs have enslaved and raped Jewish and Christian women in teh region for 1,600 year now, don’t you?

    You DO know about the birds and the bees, don’t you?

    Ever think that conquest, rape and slavery by Arab Muslim armies and conquerors since the islamic Conquest period might just have led to some genetic mixing, you dribbling imbecile?

    Now tell me again why, having immediately turned Gaza into an offensive fire-base to shoot at jews in 2005, and handed it over to a terrorist organisation called Hamas in a civil war in 2007, nothing like this could ever possibly happen on the West bank and that Arabs will all be singing Kumbaya and watching the unicorns frolic in the fairy-floss fields while crapping gumballs into the chubby hands of laughing moppets the moment all those Jews you so hate leave the West bank.

    I like fairy tales told by racist delusional uneducated pig-ignorant anti-semitic imbeciles, you see.

    How’s the goose-stepping going, BTW? (Watch out for your hip joints)

    I answered your question Carpe

    No you havn’t, i’ll make it easy for you and shorten the list;

    Prior to Arafat who was the leader of Palestine?
    What was their system of government?
    What was their currency?

    Time to pony up the facts sdfc, and don’t give me that shyte that palestinians exist in the abscence of a country. Thats like saying there is a race of people called martians even though there is no country called mars.

    You think I am a conservative? Oh dude, that’s hilarious. You really are an imbecile.

    pin dick

    Hey, it reaches my body (unlike yours), Mrs Mk50 has no complaints and we have large number of progeny. What’s your excuse?

    , your politics are closer to Nazism

    Hahahahahahahahahahahaha! Sorry comrade, I am NOT a socialist like they were and you are.

    You are just grouchy because you hurt yourself doing the goose-step again, aren’t you? I TOLD you to be careful. Call JC’s Lefty Suicide Hotline. They will help you fix what ails you!

    Happy Easter to all Cats and Kittehs. We have had a lovely family day out with friends and rellies, finishing off with a bbq at our place and at last some peace with rellies settled downstairs and all children asleep. I am now watching the first half of Gone Witb the Wind on Foxtel. The best half. Must put some teethmarks in the carrot left out for the Easter Bunny, who forgot to bring little eggs for an egg hunt this morning. The carrot is to attract him back to admire the carefully painted plaster eggs he did manage to bring and of course he will also remember the proper eggs for the egg hunt.. What a forgetful rabbit, bringing only little chocolate rabbits on Easter Sunday.

    Arrgh. It’s the amputation scene and like Scarlet I am finding that hard to take. The Old South is dying as Atlanta falls.

  8. kae

    Anna something speaking on TEN about the Royal tour blathered something ridiculous about “Tony Abbott, staunch Catholic, attending a service in an Anglican church”. Incredibly ignorant imbecile.

    I’m sorry, but WTF?

  9. Cold-Hands

    WTF? Since when do taxpayers cover this?

    GREENS Senator Larissa Waters spent a whopping $414,000 to fit out her trendy Paddington office – more than any of her Queensland political colleagues at the time.

    The office, on the top floor of a pristine-condition, split-level building on Given Tce, includes a rooftop patio with timber outdoor furniture and artificial turf.

    It opens through glass bi-fold doors to a kitchen area.

    Contacted for comment, a spokeswoman for Senator Waters said the fitout was approved by the Department of Finance but could not say for certain if taxpayers had forked out for the rooftop area as she was not responsible for those details.

    The only pollie to spend more on an office fitout in the same period was SA Senator Anne Ruston, who racked up a $438,800 bill.

    Senator Waters’ spokeswoman said it was a one-off expense for establishing a new office for a first-term senator.

    “Approved by the Department of Finance” yet not “certain” that the taxpayer was picking up the bill? Typical Greenfilth- money just falls out of the sky.

    Senator Ruston is a Liberal Senator for South Australia, so they’ve all got their hands deep in our pockets. Will Senator-elect Leyonhjelm do something about this? At least cap the sum available or something.

    More [curly questions] On Nazis, Jews, Ukraine and ‘de-escalation’ -

    http://rt.com/op-edge/geneva-ukraine-deescalation-eu-420/

    btw, I also found it interesting that free to air TV, for Easter Sunday (after family lunch = getting a few brews in), gave us the movie, “The Voyage of The Damned”.

    The story of a ship full of Jews trying to escape Nazi Germany, and how a world full of political businessmen, bartered, traded, held and bounced them around the globe, before not being forced to be returned to Nazi Germany’s ‘Camps’…that was before the declaration of WW2…after which, the vast majority of those over 900 Jews (who believed they’d escaped to safety), did become victims of Nazi round up and slaughter of Jews.

    Human Life. Unique, sacred and precious to God The Creator of All.
    Jews and Christians understand this, and keep the world in remembrance of it.

    Human eugenics requires the slaughter of humans like the slaughter of unwanted livestock.

    Human eugenics was popular before World War 1, more popular before World War 2, and Most Popular Now.

    In fact, in deed, now, it isn’t a dictatorial state forcing the selective killing of the old, ill, weak and unwanted, but mothers, fathers, children, proudly boasting that they have freely made those choice’s.

    So of course, yet again, the worldly creatures are at war against the Jews and Christians.

  11. Carpe Jugulum

    C-H; from the link – In just six months, $35 million was spent on office fitouts and travel costs for pollies and their families,

    How on earth could they spend $5.8 million a month.

  12. Cold-Hands

    How on earth could they spend $5.8 million a month.

    Very easily, Carpe, very easily.

    What I’d like to know is how they can justify that sort of spending. I can understand how some spending could be justified- phone lines, internet access and other measures to make politicians available to constituents but taxpayers funding a “rooftop patio” seems needlessly extravagant.

  13. Gab

    How on earth could they spend $5.8 million a month.

    I think I mentioned a while back about trying the Lindt drinking chocolate? Bought dark by accident and it was a bit bitter. Gave it away but then repossessed it when I thought about having it with a jigger of coconut liqueur (Norfolk Island liqueur).

    Yum.

    The milk chocolate is nice with Frangelico, too.

    Hurricane Carter:

    “He acquired a criminal record and was sentenced to a juvenile reformatory for assault shortly after his 14th birthday. Carter escaped from the reformatory in 1954 and joined the Army.[1] A few months after completing infantry basic training at Fort Jackson, South Carolina, he was sent to West Germany.[2] While in Germany Carter began to box for the United States Army.[2]

    In May 1956, he received an “Undesirable” discharge, having failed to complete his three-year term of enlistment.[3] He was arrested less than a month later for his escape from the Jamesburg Home for Boys. After his return to New Jersey, Carter was picked up by authorities and sentenced to an additional nine months, five of which he served in Annandale prison. Shortly after being released, Carter committed a series of muggings, including assault and robbery of a middle-aged black woman. He pleaded guilty to the charges and was imprisoned in East Jersey State Prison (formerly Rahway State Prison) in Avenel, New Jersey, a maximum-security facility, where he remained for the next four years,[3] and spent time in the Rahway and Trenton state prisons.

    During his visit to London (to fight Scott) Carter was involved in an incident in which a shot was fired in his hotel room.[7]“

    Best possible news for Easter!

    (If true)

    China on course to become ‘world’s most Christian nation’ within 15 years

    The number of Christians in Communist China is growing so steadily that it by 2030 it could have more churchgoers than America

    Christian congregations in particular have skyrocketed since churches began reopening when Chairman Mao’s death in 1976 signalled the end of the Cultural Revolution.
    Less than four decades later, some believe China is now poised to become not just the world’s number one economy but also its most numerous Christian nation.
    “By my calculations China is destined to become the largest Christian country in the world very soon,” said Fenggang Yang, a professor of sociology at Purdue University and author of Religion in China: Survival and Revival under Communist Rule.
    “It is going to be less than a generation. Not many people are prepared for this dramatic change.”

  31. Ellen of Tasmania

    China on course to become ‘world’s most Christian nation’ within 15 years

    And don’t we want to be part of the ‘Asian century’ that Labor used to bang on about?

  32. C.L.

    The ABC’s version of Carter’s post-army crimes:

    With an honourable discharge, he returned home and became caught up in petty crime.

    After the army, in fact:

    … Carter committed a series of muggings, including assault and robbery of a middle-aged black woman. He pleaded guilty to the charges and was imprisoned in East Jersey State Prison …

    Honourable discharge?

    In May 1956, he received an “Unfitness” discharge, well before the end of his three-year term of enlistment.

  33. Mk50 of Brisbane, Henchman to the VRWC

    ‘Demosthenes’:

    Yay, Israel/Palestine. Such a useful discussion.

    It certainly is.

    It causes pro-barbarian terrorist-supporting anti-semitic Jew-hating lefties to reveal their innate antisemitism. Even thugh they try and hide it behind code-phrases like ‘anti-Zionist’.

    Revealing an anti-semitic lefty (BIRM) is extremely useful indeed. I thought sdfc was just an effete parlour pink but no, he’s a hard left very extreme national/international socialist.

  34. Mk50 of Brisbane, Henchman to the VRWC

    Bunkerville update:

    …Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has promised local media that “this isn’t over.” And, in truth, reports on the Internet of Fed cops of various agencies’ jack-booted thug teams flooding into Las Vegas hotels are certainly correct. They are there by the hundreds, taking over entire floors, playing the slot machines and trying to look inconspicuous, which is working out about as well as you might expect. This is known to just about everybody who’s paying attention to the situation in Bunkerville, including the local media who are not reporting it, for now. Just who this demonstration of stark naked so-called “operational security” and impotent puffery is supposed to impress is another matter. Harry Reid, perhaps. Bob Wright has observed that Harry seems to believe he’s in a “biggest dick” contest with Cliven Bundy. Like the juvenile high school hall monitor who can’t get the other kids to stop running, Harry is throwing a hissy fit. Personally, I’m happy for him. Every time Harry opens his mouth, we get another hundred thousand converts to our cause nationwide. Indeed, if the mumbling, bumbling Harry did not exist, we might have to invent him. Of course, your average high school hall monitor doesn’t have the power and might of the militarized federal police establishment at his beck and call.

    Let’s hope this is just Reid having a hissy fit.

    Thanks Tom

    To summarise: this rancher Bundy has been accessing public land to graze for 20 years and hasn’t paid agistment. Up to this point I had no sympathy for Bundy.
    Then Harry Reid comes in and it seems it is about kicking the cattle off to put in a solar farm that would benefit his family at a cost to the taxpayer,as all solar facilities do. And paints it as a bunch of feral land barons/ terrorists opposing him.

    So both are dicks, and Bundy is just making it easy for the Reid arsehole.

  38. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B.

    Just had a very successful, albeit delayed, Easter Egg hunt. I know you all care. :)
    Just like here. All the adults were (are) still asleep, except for me, holding the Egg Fort.
    There are a lot of empty bottles and cans around the place too.
    Which I picked up.

    Where’s my medal?

  39. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B.

    Yay, Israel/Palestine. Such a useful discussion.

    Demosthenes, the Isreali’s think it is, the Palestinians don’t. They merely wish to obliterate Israel and teach their children hatred to encourage that. Discussions are needed, constantly, to counter the generalised “Israel bad, Palestine good” meme floating around our leftist media. Even ‘non-political’ people I speak to have caught this ‘hate Israel’ bug, though when I ask them they can’t answer even simple questions about the history of this conflict.

  40. Tom

    GEORGE Bernard Shaw wrote: “He who can, does; he who cannot, teaches.” For many this disparaging idiom still rings true, but the reality is much worse; we now have many who cannot teach populating schools and driving down academic standards.

    The OECD’s latest Program for International Student Assessment shows that Australia is falling further behind the top performing nations in key areas including mathematics, science and reading.

    Simply pouring more money into the sector is clearly not the answer. According to OECD figures, between 2000 and 2009 Australia was one of four countries whose reading results deteriorated significantly — despite spending growing over the period by a whopping 44 per cent in real terms.

    Since then, spending has continued to increase while results have continued to decrease.

    In South Korea teachers are recruited from the top 5 per cent of school leavers.

    Compare that with Australia, where standards have dropped so low that, in 2011, teaching accounted for the highest proportion of university offers for students with an Australian tertiary admission rank of less than 50. Those academic failures, who could not get into any other course but teaching, will be graduating soon and coming to a school near you.

  41. Mk50 of Brisbane, Henchman to the VRWC

    Entropy, look here and chase down the stories.

    It’s getting negligible MSM coverage of course.

    The basic story is that a Nevada cattleman’s family’s been grazing cattle on federal land (~85% of Nevada) since the 1870s without a problem. In the early 1990s the new ‘Federal Bureau of Land Management’ (BLM) started to drive them all off the land with vast increases in fees and vast decreases in how many cattle they can graze.This was being done to get greens support for Senator Harry Reid (Nevada), perhaps the most corrupt pollie in the USA. BTW he appointed a rellie of his to head the BLM, and is selling off this land to Chinese business interests who ‘co-incidentally’ pay millions into his ‘re-election’ funds. In Macau banks, apparently.

    The last cattleman (who rejoices in the name of ‘Cliven Bundy’) left standing refused to pay the fee increases or reduce his cattle numbers, saying his agreements from the 1870s stood, and he contnued to pay fees to the state of Nevada. The 1870s agreeements DO stand, but all the new laws Reid had passed override them and no, under the new laws he has no leg to stand on.

    But an unjust law is no law at all.

    So the BLM sent in 200 BLM troops with light armour and light air support (no, not making that up) to remove/shoot his cattle and destroy the water infrastructure his family had built since the 1870s. All to save the desert tortoise, of course (the same desert tortoise the BLM is killing in large numbers 50 or so miles away to clear land for one of Harry Reid’s Chinese mates solar power farms subsidised by US taxpayers – as organised by – you guessed it – Harry Reid).

    About 30 armed ‘Oathkeepers’ and ‘Three Percenters’ (Various pro-Constitutionalist factions) turned up to support Bundy. The BLM guys attacked and tasered some of these people and the shit hit the fan big time. The BLM called in roughly a battalion of their troops (think paramilitary gendarmes), and about the same number of Constitutionalists turned up to face them down.

    The BLM was faced with the absolute certainty of armed resistance from 300-400 US citizens.

    The BLM backed down and left. Basically, they were planning another Waco or Ruby Ridge massacre, but the Constitutionalists have thoroughly penetrated the US bureacracies (especially the Oathkeepers, most of who are ex-military) and they are determined that no US Federal agency will every again conduct a mass slaughter of US citizens.

    Reid is furious with the peasants actually defying him, and this is not over.

    meanwhile, blatantly unconstitutional state gun bans in Connecticut and New York State are being openly defied by 85-98% of gun owners (~300,000 people and ~1,000,000 people respectively) in the most massive acts of civil disobedience in US history.

    Finally, the more extreme Constitutionalists (who include very large numbers of retired US military) have been developing – ever since Waco and Ruby Ridge – a philosophy of warfare. It’s called ‘Fourth Generation Warfare’ and it’s optimised for Civil War in a First World state. it’s a meme. No leadership at all is required, not even a small cell of people, just single individuals who target the anti-Constitutionalist leadership as individuals. Not the cops, not the BATF agents. But Senator Harry Reid himself (not his family), the head of the BATF, any Congressman at state or federal level who votes for unconstitutional measures.

    In Connecticut, they published a list of all the State Congressmen who had voted for the unconstitutional gun bans, with their names, photographs, addresses and full contact details and said ‘IF they start killing us when they start using SWAT teams to smash into homes to seize firearms, kill these people and these people only, as they are the ones personally accountable for the deaths being inflicted’.

    The pollies (all left-wing Democrats of course) shit themselves.

    Make no mistake, these are extremist groups on both sides, for extremism breeds extremism. At least the Constitutionalists do have the US Constitution on their side (it’s their actual duty to revolt) and are determined not to fire the first shot.

    The situation is brittle and is at the mercy of the least stable extremists on both sides. And Harry Reid’s the most unstable of them all.

    Historical Aside: the ‘Three Percenters’ take their name from the 3% of US Colonists who actively participated in the fighting. 97% did not. Over half remained loyal to the Crown. Another 2% of the Colonists fought for the Crown. They lost because of the idea that the Liberty accorded to an Oversea Briton (as British Colonists in The Americas, Australia and NZ were known well into the 20th century) should be the same as those accorded to a Briton at ‘Home’. Even the British Government agreed with this view – but it took until Lord Durham’s Report on the Revolt of Lower Canada in 1832 to properly work out how to actually do this inside the Empire in a way which really did work. See John Darwin’s work on the Dominion Concept to see the outcome at full flower.

    All of the above is why I have been keeping tabs on this crap ever since Waco.

    My US military friends call this ‘a Constitutional reset’ situation.

    Business as usual in Queensland.

    QUEENSLAND’S top public servant intends to retain his major stake in a company set up last year with former Australian Water Holdings boss Nick Di Girolamo and Eddie Obeid Jr.

    Jon Grayson, picked by Campbell Newman to become director-general of the Department of Premier and Cabinet because of his business experience, says he has only a passive interest in Gasfield Water and Waste Services and is not aware of any dealings by the company since he joined the Queensland government, in March 2012.

    [ ....]

    An AWH board minute of 2011, tendered to ICAC, reported Mr Di Girolamo saying AWH largely bankrolled Gasfields Water Management, in which Mr Grayson held a 25 per cent stake.

    “The CEO explained that as AWH would be the company’s main financier, it was appropriate we take a controlling interest (75 per cent) in the company,’’ the minute said. Mr Grayson had been providing advice to AWH, through its subsidiary Australian Water Queensland, as it pushed for contracts in the state.

    Looks like Campbell Newman is just as stupid as Barry O’Farrell – in which case he deserves a similar fate. Why is he letting his most senior public servant, who has access to anything he wants to see in the Queensland government, associate with these spivs?

  47. Tel

    To summarise: this rancher Bundy has been accessing public land to graze for 20 years and hasn’t paid agistment.

    Inaccurate summary.

    The rancher Bundy was paying his fees while the BLM were using those fees to maintain the land, which was their part of the agreement. Once they started using those fees to drive other ranchers off the land (and most of those other ranchers are in fact gone now), Bundy decided the appropriate thing to do was resist.

    MH370 has gone out of fashion, but the search continues:

    …it took 18 Bluefin 21 missions to finally find Air France Flight 447 and it was located 10km further away from the best estimates. Yesterday the Bluefin 21 was embarked on its 8th mission that is concentrated on a 10km radius around the second Towed Pinger Locator detection which occurred on the 8th of April. It has now covered about 50 per cent of the underwater search zone.

    Some good news for the taxpayers of NSW, Neville Wran is dead! While Labor and Liberals appear to be competing to find suitable superlatives to describe this grub those who actuall knew him will remember him as a bribe-taker par excellence. He even made Rob Askin look like a learner and managed to extract more from illegal casino operators in his first twelve months as Premier than Askin did in his entire career. But that was just a warm up,then he got serious.
