    We cannot rest until the last journalist has been been throttled with the entrails of the last SJW.

  2. Happy New Year.
    More winning.
    All Year.
    Non-Stop.

    Thank you, Sinclair, I shall turn up the pipes. I do love good bagpipe music – the Memsahib hates them….

    Happy New year, Ricardo, all the very best to you and your family.

  4. Thanks Zulu. 2017 will be a ripper.
    The best of British to you and yours, my friend.

    Happy New Year to you all.

    While there will never be another 2016, let’s hope that 2017 continues the winning.

  15. Fat Tony

    Happy New Year to you all

    Riccardo – 2017 will be a ripper, but i fear it may be the year that the Empire Strikes Back – they will not go away quietly.

    Remember that socialism killed the same number of people that islam did – in 100 years compared with 1400 years for islam.

    Socialism will only be destroyed physically.

  16. jupes

    The smart money is on West Coast for 2017.

    You heard it here first.

  17. Rabz

    For Fatty Trumpians across the globe – as renditioned by one of his many (and quite possibly, the humblest) fans.

  18. Fisky

    Thank you 2016 for the best year of my life! Just magnificent

    Vooking good. I hope they die strangled with the guts of the last of their fellow travelers.

    You’re right and we must do it one crooked ALP/LNP branch at a time.

  21. Top Ender

    Our TV decided an hour ago to cark it.

    I will never buy LG again. Three LG DVD players/recorders died on us – all replaced under warranty and then expiring one by one until Hardly Normal gave us a Panasonic.

    This LG is about 5 years old – no picture, sound only, and even when powered up now quits anyway for reasons best known to itself.

    Still 45 mins to go to New Year. Fools nearby locally letting off fireworks already. You can buy them legally in the NT on 1 July and some people store them up.

    Have taken cat inside and started up the air-conditioners.

  22. Zulu Kilo Die Onuitspreeklike

    Have taken cat inside and started up the air-conditioners.

    Top Ender, the memsahib has gone to bed, muttering about my drinking habits. I’m sitting outside, overlooking the Avon Valley, with a book on “the Australian Submarine Six” and a decanter of thirty year old single malt.

    If you are ever out west, give me a bellow. I’m less then an hours drive outside of Perth.

  23. Fisky

    Amazing song. This guy has got to play at the inauguration!

  24. Megan

    Happiest of New Years to the Cat team. Long may the winning continue in 2017. Now…if we could only winkle the Usurper out of the Lodge.

    Probably about the same odds as me winning Tatslotto tonight.

  25. ‘ night all… See you on the morrow.

  26. YT

    Happy New Year Cats. Except for a certain urine soaked ankle, you can curl up and die alone.

  27. Zulu Kilo Die Onuitspreeklike

    This one for Top Ender – a one time brother in law – twenty seven years Pussers, and he got sea sick, every time he went to sea, and a bloke I served with – twenty years Royal Australian Air Force, and he was horribly airsick, any where he went near an aircraft. I sat next to him on three trips overseas..

  28. memoryvault

    Geez, I made it.
    Hello 2017. I wasn’t sure I’d be around to greet you.

    Happy New Year to all you other survivors.

    Welcome to the Year of the Trumpinator.
    May we not be disappointed.

  29. Top Ender

    Zulu, will do, although your memsahib and mine sound the same. We will send them off to town to get a ladies’ dinner, and return to find us both disgraceful.

  30. Zulu Kilo Die Onuitspreeklike

    Geez, I made it.
    Hello 2017. I wasn’t sure I’d be around to greet you.

    Look out, Memory Vault. I’m reading Paul Ham’s book on the Viet Nam War, and it seems Scheyville OCTU graduated more second lieutenants then Portsea ever did…by the way, is it true that a Scheyville second lieutenant could be failed, twenty minutes before graduation……what a bastard….

  31. Makka

    Amazing song. This guy has got to play at the inauguration!

    Nooo… these guys should play at the inauguration and bring the girls along too…

  32. memoryvault

    is it true that a Scheyville second lieutenant could be failed, twenty minutes before graduation……what a bastard….

    Not in my experience, Zulu. Although it could be a bastardisation of a one-off truism: In my time (at the very end) prior to graduation you could opt for a short term commission (five years) as a reg, with everything that entailed re benefits.

    Then Whitlam got in, and everything was done to get rid of these guys, and so deny them a regular army career and what went with it. A dental cavity or a bad case of sunburn was enough to be declared medically unfit and discharged.

  33. Zulu Kilo Die Onuitspreeklike

    Zulu, will do, although your memsahib and mine sound the same. We will send them off to town to get a ladies’ dinner, and return to find us both disgraceful.

    This would be interesting. The Memsahib, the grand niece of the Dutch Admiral who defended the Netherlands East Indies to the last man and the last ship in 1942, and signed the surrender on behalf of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, on the deck of the U.S.S. Missouri in 1945.

    We’ll lay in plenty of gin.. I reserve the right to get disgraceful…

  34. Westie woman

    Best wishes to all of you here from one of your dedicated lurkers!
    Thanks for all of your wonderful and funny comments – my go to blogs every day are here, Ace of Spades, Weasel Zippers, Gateway Pundit, Instapundit and Andrew Bolt with Tim Blair and the Daily Mail thrown in.

    No need for any TV news and any other sites.

    Twitter also helps with my history obsession

    Catallaxy is just the best so Happy New Year to you!

  35. Crossie

    Just got home from a NYE shindig, had a great time and even won oven mittens in the raffle.

    Happy New Year to everyone and may 2017 be kind to us.

    Trump’s best ever tweet!

  37. Robber Baron

    Here in Vietnam it is just a few hours shy of 2017.

    I hope that 2017 brings the downfall of socialism, the destruction of radical Islam and ignites freedom, free-market capitalism and prosperity.

    It is also time for new leadership for Australia. The Liberal party can survive and prosper with a new conservative leader, or disintegrate under Turnbull and Bishop.

  38. Oh come on

    Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump
    Happy New Year to all, including to my many enemies and those who have fought me and lost so badly they just don’t know what to do. Love!

    That is absolutely awesome. Trump is to Twitter what Deep Blue is to chess.

    A way to go yet here for us in Europe only 4:42 PM.
    Going home in a couple of month, until the next posting.

    I hope Europe survives their own stupidity and the onslaught of the barbarians.

    Happy and prosperous New Year to all.

  40. Oh come on

    2016 was a shit year for me (bar November, which was literally the best I’ve ever had). Annus horribilus – though not for the same reasons as QEII’s nasty 1992. I Regardless, good riddance. I may have been more abrasive to some than I should have been. Apologies. Anyway, hopefully 2017 reverts to the mean. Hope it’s a good year for you all, too.

  41. Bruce in WA

    Still only 8.20 am NYE here in Washington State . There is a thick blanket of fog where we are staying that muffles all sound; so much so that my tinnitus screeches obscenely — half a century of motorbikes and firearms will do that to you. (The most commonly heard word on a firing line? “What?”)

    Anyway, breakfast coming up; ham, eggs, sausage, grilled tomatoes. Then b-i-l is taking me to an indoor range for some fun with his .357 and 9mm. (He’s a retired medical specialist — and a fearless Republican. So we get on well 😬.)

    On this trip I am, again, blown away by the hospitality and sheer friendliness of the “average” American. (Except for the arsehole in Anaheim who was seriously about to rearrange my face — because I got served my chicken in the store before he did.)

    Tomorrow, we start the trek back to Perth. Not my favorite occupation …

    So, happy new year to everyone here, and thanks Professor Sir Doomie for providing somewhere for us all to read, write and, above all, learn.

  42. Gab

    (Apparently I posted this on the old thread)

    Happy New Year to everyone. And for those of you who have experienced an annus horribilis in 2016, may this new year be a turnaround for you; a year filled with success, good health and love.

    Okay, now I’m off to bed.

  43. Huck

    Happy New Year all.
    On my way home from work. By God I hate people.

  44. squawkbox

    Happy new year from the awesome land of Expatria (unfortunately due to return to Australiastan in 2017. (Seriously, I leave for two years and you replace the douche Abbott with the tapeworm Turnbull and then let him win an election, if only by the slimmest of margins? Can I trust you lot with anything?). Big sloppy kisses to everyone, and may the winningest winning continue.

  45. hzhousewife

    Happy New Year all, am on my way to work. Here’s hoping the winning continues in 2017, and yes, we have to do something about Turdball asap.

  46. calli

    Happy New Year Cats and Kittehs!🎉🎉🎉

    Prepare for a year of awesomeness. It may be that the stupidity on display in 2016 has not yet peaked. For instance, we have a two page spread on the Debbildebbil Russians in the dead tree Tele today.

    Quick everyone! Have a look under the beds. It’s your civic duty. 😃

    A guid new year tae yin an all,and mony may ye see ,and thru all the year tae cum. Happy may ye be! Traditional Scots song mexpreses my wishes to all Cats ,Be ye great or small.

    Happy New Year to everyone .. clicked on play and ended up watching about 10 clips in a row .. glorious!!!

    TRUMP!

    Buckle up boneheads: political criminals, GOP Never-Trumpers, the US ‘Right’, assorted miscreants, anti-nationalists, globalists, venal politicians, swamp dwellers, anti-wallers, country revilers, culture warriors and culture haters, ‘pollsters’ and dopey academics, LGBTI/CIS, minority supremacists, Pope, TPPers, whitaphobes and Leftists everywhere, Bush/Clinton dynastic carteliers, Huma’s sexter, HRC’s server techs, ‘free’ traders, K street parasites and Keynesians losers – you’re going for a ride – the landing may not be a soft one. lol. Special call out to the media arm of the DNC – the fake news media: the landing may be very rough indeed.

    All arrayed against DJT; it would hardly be a fair fight otherwise. Final sad note for Seth Rich and law enforcement who died in the line of duty. Julian Assange for NY awards.

  50. A Lurker

    Happy New Year all, and fingers crossed that 2017 will be an even worse year for the worldwide Triggered generation and that there will be multiple head explosions to enjoy over the next 12 months.

  51. Cold-Hands

    Happy New Year to one and all!
    May the #Winning continue!

  52. john constantine

    Their australian Narco-pravda, their abc, are glued to the Trump Twitter account, each praying to the gods of the abyss that they can be the one to breathlessly announce the ‘gotcha’ that will destroy their enemy.

    Why doesn’t Trump obey us and crawl under the weight of our agenda like turnmerkel does?.

    When the time comes to pay for all sins, the media arm of their social justice kleptocracy can simply have their money subsidies and medications cut off, no other punishment is needed.

    Like with their clinton crime family, the high paid speeches, the lucrative book deals, the awards and prizes will all just fade away when the ability to repay the bribes vanishes.

  53. JamesS

    Happy New Year you lot!

    The Cat is the best “fake news” site around. Even when JC and Joanna are stoushing.

    Looking forward to more political debasement this year. There are so many broken models and foggy thinking in health, news, economics, immigration, politics etc – and don’t get me started on education. 2017 will be full of surprises.

    Anyway don’t care too much. The kids had a good time by the pool last night and the fireworks at The Entrance were most entertaining, people enjoying themselves. HNY

  54. Geriatric Mayfly

    It’s a conundrum. Turn up the winning to eleventy in 2017, and the whining will not be far behind. Because the latter is in the hands of the media filthorcs ™ and their ilk, it tends to overwhelm our best endeavours.

  55. squawkbox

    Prepare for a year of awesomeness. It may be that the stupidity on display in 2016 has not yet peaked. For instance, we have a two page spread on the Debbildebbil Russians in the dead tree Tele today.

    Quick everyone! Have a look under the beds. It’s your civic duty. 😃

    Good advice , Calli. The young lady under the bed turned out to be an extra from old late night SBS movies. “Oh Gustav, it’s so hot in here. I must take my shirt off….”

  57. Tintarella di Luna

    Ciao gatti,

    Cheers for the New Year, thank God we get one every year, just like we’re given an new day every day, it’s God’s way of giving a chance to start again.

    Here’s to winning bigly.

  58. Happy New year, Cats. I’m hungover, so I’m doing fuck all today, with the exception of lurking here. Here’s hoping 2017 is a better year, as 2016 was not so good.

    May the winning continue!

  59. That’s a good way to look at it, Tinta. Every day is a new chance, and there’s a big chance that I won’t be drinking tonight, feeling a little poisoned and all.

  60. Audit the Liberal Party

    Pro Tip: To destroy an enemy, your must:
    a. incapacitate the headquarters,
    b. destroy their communications, and
    c. deny them access to their resources.

  61. Brislurker

    Happy New Year everyone 🎉🍸

    May 2017 be kind to all.

  62. Tintarella di Luna

    That’s a good way to look at it, Tinta. Every day is a new chance, and there’s a big chance that I won’t be drinking tonight, feeling a little poisoned and all.

    The Beer Whisperer, there is good everywhere, we just have to be open to finding it and we sometimes have to get our hands dirty and smelly digging through the crap.

    At least Beer Whisperer, you will be able to lurk here which is a good start to getting over a hangover.

    Anyone who feels like sobbing their way into 2017, there’s ample fodder at the Fox News site. 127 images of ‘stars’ we lost in 2016.

    I was out on my dawn walk this morning, a new day and a new year and safe NY to you all, and at the top of the headland near us was a small ecumenical religious service at sunrise.

    There were Australian and Jewish flags, as our town has a small but significant and well-liked Jewish population. I am Catholic but not churchgoing, however, this morning was a very touching piece of connection, as it becomes evident that Christians and Jews must stand together against Islam, which basically hates everyone else.g

    Happy new year from us Novocastrians. Up here things went very well, leading to a wonderfully boring headline on the local TV news just now:
    HUNTER CROWDS GENERALLY WELL BEHAVED FOR NEW YEARS EVE

    It’s worthwhile seeing the report because it is so joyful.

    On the other side of things Mariah Carey had a year to forget, busting up with Mr Packer, backing Hillary in the election and then epically faceplanting in her NYE show.

    Mariah Carey has NYE performance fiasco

    Mariah Carey New Year’s Eve Lip Sync Fiasco

    Still fifty big ones and a ring with a rock the size of Kansas should make her happier.
    Have a good 2017 Cats!

  71. Oh come on

    She got $50 million from Packer? Seriously?!

  72. Oh come on

    Why didn’t Packer throw her a few bones (say, one or two mil or whatever) and if she said no, threaten to take the matter to court indefinitely so that by the time proceedings are over, she’ll have to spend the next ten years doing nightly shows in Vegas to pay off her legal bill?

    Or maybe she knows stuff about his private life that he’s willing to pay $50 million so it stays out of the public domain.

  73. Nerblnob

    Happy New Year all.

    My prediction for 2017:
    Lefties start campaigning against the secret ballot.

    You read it here first.

  74. Bruce of Newcastle

    She got $50 million from Packer? Seriously?!

    She’s asking for that, yep. The rock alone is worth $7.5 million and she says she won’t give it back.
