    Hey, a burning high rise in Tehran just collapsed in on itself.

    Is that even possible?

    https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/2651561/seventeen-story-building-collapses-in-iranian-capital-tehran-leaving-at-least-38-people-injured/

    The building’s designer was Habibollah Elghanian, a prominent Iranian-J e w i s h businessman who was arrested for ties to Israel and sentenced to death and executed after the 1979 Islamic revolution

    Slow fused detonation – you know it makes sense…….

    Jokes aside, the film from Press TV at the start of the video clips is pretty sad, because there are clearly a stack of fire brigade extension pumps hosing the building from different angles that get taken out as the building collapses. Lot of dead firies – not good.

    Hehe, was watching Nine late morning news when ad break arrived, so I switched to ABC24 to see what they’re up to.

    Scrolling through TheirABC Online, the Obummerlove goes on and on and on. One headline is Is Barack Obama the Coolest President in US history? (why, yes he is!) and another reads Obama and His Many Encounters with Kids (cue barfworthy “cute” photos;) further along is a photomontage of the “best” photos of Michelle.

    Earlier this week they ran tributes to Obummer the great orator, Obummer the great statesman, etc.

    I may be wrong, but I can’t recall such a slew of drooling tributes to any previous departing POTUS.

    They are grieving deeply over there.

    Barely a word about Trump. I guess he’s not newsworthy.

    Here’s a better one. Chuckle. The horse has a little crown too.

    I was interested so went off to find out what medals Liz wears when she does the saluting thing (which she does very well IMO).

    Here we go:

    The Medals (and other accolades) of Queen Elizabeth II

    The following list highlights the various honours worn by QEII that were earned by, or bestowed upon, her outright while she was still Princess Elizabeth. That is, they are not medals, decorations or honours to which she became associated upon her accession as Queen.

    The Queen continued to proudly wear her medals whenever she was in military uniform – most notably during her Trooping the Colour Birthday Parade when she still rode on horseback and donned the uniform of the Household Division that was trooping their Colour.

    In “order of wear” precedence (from the readers’ left to right) HM wears:
    – The Imperial Order of the Crown of India (CI)
    – The Defence Medal
    – The War Medal 1939-1945
    – The King George V Silver Jubilee Medal
    – The King George VI Coronation Medal
    – The Canadian Forces Decoration (CD)

    The lady has style…she only wears what she is entitled to from before her coronation.
    The big star is the Order of the Garter.

    It’s a worry. Dickhead Dan and the Waffler heading towards Alcoa with pockets full of other peoples’ money. A reprise of the car industry and its slow and painful death. That aside, it puzzles me why eltrickery has to be hauled half way across the State to power the Portland smelter, when a solar plant closer to the site would do the trick. Sun blessed aluminium, just like the trams.

    Trump Derangement is the strongest horse in the race at our ABC.
    The World Today featured the opposition to the inauguration, with an “unprecedented withdrawal of celebrities” – except for Country & Wester ones, who anyway are “too right and too white”.
    Music is essential to a proper inauguration, doncha know? How long has this been goin’ on? Since George Washington himself, they’d like you to believe.

    So she’s going to do something about issues beyond her jurisdiction. Yes, that will be surprising.

    Baird has set the progressive bar pretty high for Gladys. She’ll have to re-ban greyhounds to get anywhere near Baird’s record.

    IRAN’S social media police have struck again.

    The Islamic Republic arrested and jailed a female bodybuilder after she published revealing photos of herself online, Iranian media reported Wednesday.

    “One of the female bodybuilders who recently published nude photographs on social networks has been arrested,” the Mizanonline news agency reported.

    Fair enough.

    This is a lot of fun.

    Cory Bernardi calls himself an Australian Conservative, removes Liberal Party references from social media

    CORY Bernadi has overhauled his social media accounts ahead of his “massive” plans for 2017, deleting almost every reference to belonging to the Liberal Party.

    Shot over the bows Mr Turnbull?

    Last year, the senator signalled “massive” plans for 2017 in a final post to his Australian Conservatives website.

    “Our new state-of-the-art website is almost ready to go, and we will be launching it early next year, along with a number of important campaigns,” the update reads.

    “Please watch this space for further updates.”

    Two shots over the bows.

    It’s believed the senator could have the backing of Australia’s richest woman Gina Rinehart who, like Senator Bernardi, has praised Donald Trump for listening to the people of America.

    The pair reportedly met members of the President-elect’s inner circle in Washington in November.

    There have also been unconfirmed reports Mr Bernardi was a guest of Ms Rinehart’s on a luxury cruiseliner over the Christmas holidays.

    And armed with a thermonuclear political weapon!
    This is so much fun and sadly I’ve already used up all my popcorn on the US election.

  40. H B Bear

    Baird has set the progressive bar pretty high for Gladys. She’ll have to re-ban greyhounds to get anywhere near Baird’s record.

    Reinstituting the six o’clock swill ought to do it.

    Sure looks like Bernardi is strapping on the suicide vest and walking into the Waffleworth Coalition Team party room. Please prove me (and mUnty) wrong by pulling the trigger.

    “You’re likely to see a very progressive leader,” one ally says. “She will be a strong supporter of climate change as scientific fact, progressive policy on immigration and border control and gender equality.

  43. Infidel Tiger

    The perfect speech of course would be for Trump walk up say ” Thank you. God bless America” and thenwalk off.

    Too sick to recall what the link was back a page showing the full force of the swampies as they muster to meet up with the Hells Angels. But it was hilarious, a long scroll of pics of how swampy men contrast to men of other times and ages. Loved the pic of a row of nappy pins (with Disney heads) hanging off a main pin; swampy medals. And much more of the same. A great send up. Inventive humour. Time for a laugh if you didn’t see it and care to back track.

    Nothing new there.
    Can you point to where Turnbull himself has ever used the Liberal logo?
    Remember he ran the last election under the banner of Team Tumbrill or somesuch, and his website and election material hasn’t displayed the Lib logo for years.

    Calvin Coolidge would not abide.

    Sadly, you and I seem to be the only members of the Australian branch of the Calvin Coolidge fan club.
    As someone pointed out here the other day, Coolidge was sworn in by his old man (a registered Notary) by the light of a kerosene lamp (eek, carbon!) in their farmhouse after Warren Harding expired unexpectedly. As far as I can tell, Beyoncé didn’t sing a song to mark the occasion.
    A man given to austere habits for himself and those who spend taxpayers dollars.

  52. herodotus

    If so I hereby declare her unsuitable.

    Plus, her director of communication is Ehssan Veiszadeh, husband of Daily Life’s Woman of the Year, Mariam Veiszadeh.

    Just reflect on that a little. Gladys comes from an Armenian Orthodox family.

  55. Leigh Lowe

    As further evidence of the modesty of Calvin Coolidge, his very small gravestone (about 2’6″ high) simply bears his name and the dates of his birth and death.
    The only hint of anything remarkable is a US Government (Presidential?) crest at the top.
    I went looking for it in the cemetery at Plymouth Notch, Vermont a couple of years ago and it took me ages to find it because it was no different to any of the other 200-300 gravestones.
    I somehow don’t see Trumpster as coming from the same mould.

    Calvin Coolidge was one of the great US presidents.

    Listen to this Coolidge speech from 1924 and you’ll see why he is so often denigrated by today’s elites.

    If every US president were like this man, imagine how much better off we’d all be today.

    Thanks to Tammy

    PS: This is my favorite Coolidge story. Don’t know if its true, but I hope it is.

    The President and Mrs. Coolidge were in separate parties touring a large chicken farm.

    Mrs. Coolidge’s entourage happened upon a rooster getting very amorous with a chicken. The first lady was impressed and asked the farmer if this was a once a day event or was the rooster capable of repeat performances. The farmer assured Mrs Coolidge that indeed the rooster could carry out his duties several times daily.

    Mrs. Coolidge turned to one of the entourage and said to him “please go and tell THAT to the President!”

    When informed by the messenger of the rooster’s prowess, President Coolidge turned to a farmer in his entourage and asked “is this with one chicken or with different chickens?”

    The farmer informed President Coolidge that this was indeed all with different chickens – several a day in fact.

    President Coolidge turned to the messenger and said “please go and tell THAT to Mrs Coolidge.”

    Your scepticism is well merited – this may in fact be a bitter factional enemy of Glad trying to stick the knife in by ‘damning with faint praise’ so to speak.

    But it says so much about politics in NSW in general and in the NSW Liberal Party in particular – it is entirely believable that a real ally of Glad’s believes this to be true AND that broadcasting this will win her plaudits with the chattering classes.

    Once again for the retarded: US presidents in the past never returned salutes. The “tradition” was invented by Ronald Reagan. Trump the draft dodger looks like an idiot doing it, as did Obama.

    Witnesses described a man hanging out of a window screaming as he performed “doughnuts” outside Flinders Street Station while a police helicopter hovered above.

    Witness Rainbow Vekios described the man as “with dark hair, thin and of Middle Eastern appearance”.”We saw a man hanging out the window and he was doing burn outs,” Ms Vekios said.”He was screaming out to people.

    “The police came and he started speeding down swanston street.”I saw one person getting CPR and another being treated.”

    Ms Vekios said she was terrified and feared the man would run her over.

    “It’s all so hard to take in,” she said.”It’s like something out of a movie. I’m very shaken up.”

    Police have flooded the area and are forcing the crowds onlookers away from the scene.

    On my social media feed : a boast that solar now employees more people than coal!

    If employment is what we are after, the coal industry could make enough profits to employee a million hole diggers and another million hole fillers.

    With the costs passed onto to the consumers or taxpayers, natch.

    People are celebrating this without the slightest bit of critical thinking.

    For a rich society,you need as few people as possible working in primary industry, ie, being as efficient as possible. The more people involved in digging things up, making energy and growing food, the poorer your society. Doesn’t matter if they are cleaning solar panels in spiffing overalls or making cowshit patties, you want as few people as possible doing the basic stuff and as many people as possible doing the highly value added stuff.

    The ultimate power station has a man and a dog watching the output. The dog is there to bite the man if he tries to do any work. That would make for a very rich society.

    An army of ‘green workers’ looking after fields of low energy density collection will by definition make you poorer.

    The reason for this car attack is that Australia has allowed far too many Muslims into the country. We must stop this at once.

    Look, like most of you I have friends and relatives in Melbourne. One of them could be the victim and I don’t know yet. If one did turn out to be hurt or worse, I would be angry with the politicians who keep letting unsuitable people into formerly peaceful cities. I couldn’t care less what some cross bench senator says on twitter.

    You can bet thousands of people in the CBD right now are thinking this enough is enough.

    It’s entirely the wrong politics to start saying ‘oh, we better not say anything and let the left control the narrative- they might call me a racist or a bigot or maybe even (gasp, clutch pearls!) a nazi!’

    The left is a paper tiger with only bully pulpits to keep it in power. Call them out, belittle them. Do it while the focus of the nation is on. Take away their bully pulpits and you realise it’s just a mix of airheads and freaks too scared to step out of line.

    The bird’s carcass was found by investigators.

    Anyone who continues to support Muslim immigration is objectively pro-terrorism.

  176. Anne

    The Narrative never changes. It goes like this:

    Immediately after the attack, the president or the prime minister of the country in which the attack has taken place goes on TV and declares that this attack had nothing to do with Islam.

    Right after that the chief of police announces that he has taken all the measures to protect Muslims from any imaginary backlash and nonexistent reprisal.

    In the evening of the same day the mainstream media interviews an imam or a Muslim spokesperson who emphasizes that Islam does not condone violence.

    We are then told that extremists exist in all religions and reminded that some thirty years ago a few Christians killed a few abortionist murderers of unborn babies.

    Then the pundits are called to pontificate that the root cause of Islamic terrorism is not in what the terrorist themselves say, and nothing to do with the Quran (that in hundreds of verses calls on the believers to kill the unbelievers), but in the injustice done to Muslims in other parts of the world, such as in Abu Ghraib prison and particularly in Palestine where half a century ago Israelis defeated the Arab invaders who had vowed to drown them in the sea.

    A few days after that the police and the politicians of the victim country hold meetings with the leaders of the Muslim community where they conclude that more money should be given to the “moderate Muslims” to persuade the “radicals” to not take their religion seriously.

    The experts also conclude that emblems like Christmas and Christmas trees hurt the religious sentiment of Muslims and they should be removed from public institutions, shopping malls and schools, while at the same time Muslims should be given some concessions, like not requiring them to wash their hands before performing operation on patients, designating a room and Islamic toilets for them in public institutions, and allow them to apply for driving license without requiring them to show their face.

    Also, in the spirit of integration and community cohesion, everyone should be forced to eat halal meat, which involves extra cruelty to the animals, without their knowledge, whether they want it or not.

    I hope it wasn’t an Islamist following the call of Isis to run people over. I wish this never happened.

    it’s cars out of Stephen King’s ‘Christine’. People
    need to know it was the decisions of our leaders, aided and abetted
    by the media and the judicial system that is to blame. It would be an insult
    to the dead and dying to allow the leftist grubs to seize the narrative
    because of traumatised relatives and deflect blame from the cockroaches
    responsible.’j

    speaking of the ACL bombing, any updates since, have the police filed any charges yet?

    Youtube not allowing viewing of CBD attack videos?

    No, I can see them.

    ..
    Just me then.
    I get a black screen with an error message.
    What’s the deal with that?

  212. Fisky

    The police saying it’s “not terror related” is about distorting the media cycle and protecting the Narrative, nothing more. It will turn out to be terror-related.

    On-line newspapers are Arky. They are so full of animated sh*t they won’t load.

  214. C.L.

    Yeah, I dunno, Fisk.
    Muslim car terrorist wouldn’t bother with the donuts.

    Suggest you crab cash and get the hell outta your house and go dark.

    Or maybe you need to close/restart your browser?

    Christine Nixon tells she was also directing traffic afterwards. What a hero.

    She’s the size of a large roundabout. Cars were probably just driving around her.

    Christine Nixon has her own gravitation pull.
    The cars weren’t driving around here.
    They were caught & couldn’t break free.
    Yet another case of Fatty Nixon causing grief.

  218. calli

    Police say the incident was not terrorism related and there is no further threat to the public.

    Perhaps not. Just another mass murder by a Lone Wolf.

    Apparently Malcolm the Magnificent is going to spend a quarter of a billion of taxpayers’ dollars on keeping Alcoa smelter open.

    Where’s Sinclair?

    The blood of every person killed by these lunatics cries out for justice. Will they get it?

  221. Empire GTHO Phase III

    It might well be a case of the Iceman cometh instead of Allens Snackbar

    I think so. I had a squiz at the crime scene about an hour ago. Security was casual.

    In the midst of tragedy, Christine Nixon: “look at me!”

    Go away you appalling woman.

    My guess is it’s an Aboriginal convert to Islam. All Aboriginals drive Commodores. Every single last one. God they love those things. Sure, you occasionally see them in a Tarago, but that’s always their second vehicle.

    Suggest you grab cash and get the hell outta your house and go dark.

    ..
    Oh no!
    Is Christine Nixon after me?

  225. Tintarella di Luna

    “It is too early to speculate on the exact circumstances leading up to the incident, but regardless this is a tragedy and our hearts go out to all of those who have been injured or lost their lives, as well as their families. and accidents happen, tragedies happen

  226. Fisky

    Yeah, I dunno, Fisk.
    Muslim car terrorist wouldn’t bother with the donuts.

    It’s not either/or. And there’s always a first for something.

  227. Senile Old Guy

    Police say the incident was not terrorism related and there is no further threat to the public.

    Until next time.

    And, after people are injured or dead, there will be ‘no further threat to the public’.

    Until next time…

  228. Infidel Tiger

    Who was stabbed earlier in the day?

    That is a strange reaction to stabbing someone.

  229. Baldrick

    VicPol: “The incident is not terror related.”

    Witness: “… he was watching the people and yelling Allah Akbar, Allah Akbar.”

    Go figure.

    Lol, Gab.

    Hmmm. We might be going to get the same treatment as the ACL bombing before Christmas.

    I can given an update on this, I called the ACL this morning and was told it was still under investigation to which I said I was very concerned particularly as it was more than a month ago and just before Christmas the most significant date on the Christian calendar to which I was given the response – Hmmmmmmm — and that it is in the hands of God and the police now — and I said I had every confidence in God, and that I would call again in a month for an update.

  233. Mike of Marion

    VICPOL from Minister through Commissioner to Police Media – blatant liars.

    Feds only in for $30m over 4 years. Wouldn’t even pay half an hours interest on the national debt. Still not Potential Greatness though.
