    Quadrant online:

    I can’t imagine how Bill Leak coped as bravely and for as long as he did, not with the authorities and Muslim fanatics each determined to put his head on a pole. This is Australia’s disgrace: a relentless, speech-enforcing bureaucracy making common cause with head-loppers

    leak mug III do not ask, how he died, for medical opinion tells us it was a heart attack. I do ask why he had to die as he did, weary and stressed after months of unconscionable official harassment. Bill Leak, cartoonist extraordinaire is lost to us. No more of that sardonic wit. Gone forever the sharpshooting sniper whose targets were the pompous and the self-righteous and the lies they tell each other and will use any means at their disposal to make the rest of us bow before them too.

    US college student claims she was raped:

    But Jane did not go straight home. She went to another fraternity house, uninvited, and climbed into bed with an unsuspecting person. She “jumped on top of him,” and he told her to leave, according to the lawsuit.

    She then headed to a different bedroom, removed her shirt, and initiated oral sex on a third person. She spent the night there, and went home in the morning.

    The only prudent option is to go nuclear and record every personal interaction and your home life.

    I’ve got a feeling thought that the authorities may have failed to do their job even if they had it on video record of her sexually assaulting two other parties and our first unlucky participant being exonerated.

    I’m gonna say it, go Dutton.

    He’s the closest thing to young blood they have and if him or Angus can’t do it, then people will start to realise the Liberals have very little left and ought to die with a lack of dignity.

    There’s a message for the Liberal Party when a comment like that doesn’t seem ludicrously ludicrous.

  4. feelthebern

    If the answer is Dutton, it must have been one helluva question.

    same link:

    A country that funds a spiteful bureaucracy to punish those of whose words it disapproves is already there. It’s just a question of degree. To tolerate that is worse than simply being stripped of the freedom millions died to win and defend. Rather, it is to throw away freedom and liberty like so much worthless rubbish. Today they pick off a cartoonist and a laughing, joyful mob dips its hankies in the blood for souvenirs. Tomorrow? It could be any door — your door, my door, any door — on which the enforcer’s fist bangs in the darkness.

    I state it plainly, people, in the USSR, where I lived and grew up. Like Bill Leak, I was hauled in front of the unsmiling, self-righteous, angry, shouting komsomoltsy of the Young Communist League for my desire to emigrate to the West. My wife and I, two thought-criminals together. We were denounced as Western spies and Zionist traitors, criminals who deserved to be shot. We did not know at the time if we would have to find someone prepared to care for our four-year old daughter if we were taken away. In the USSR that was the fate of those who declined to submit to their tormentors. I saw people being accused in front of many of anti-Communist thoughts or deeds or words. I knew people, like Bill, who were taken to hospital with heart attacks. Their friends stayed silent or publicly turned against them. I saw all this and worse.

    Good old “Christian, freedom loving” Putin set up Komosol again, back in 2013.

    http://www.rferl.org/a/putin-pioneers-movement/27334210.html

    An annual summer camp organized by Nashi and held at Lake Seliger north of Moscow attracts hundreds of young Russians from across the country, but has also hosted controversial events in past years. In 2010, the camp included an exhibition with faces of foreign politicians — including former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice — wearing hats with Nazi symbols, accompanied by a banner reading “You Are Not Welcome Here.”

    Russians are great people, but ruled by mobsters and tyrants.

    In defence of Neil Armfield, whom I met many times when he was starting his career, he’s a leftie but not a jerk.

    He is a quiet, polite and self-effacing chap. Intelligent. Gay, but in no way queeny.

    While I completely get people’s diatribes against the entertainment industry, ad homs against people like Armfield and Noni Hazelhurst are out of order. Believe it or not, the fact that someone tends to the Left does not automatically make them a bad person.

    I don’t resile from those comments.

    A long time ago, I worked with Neil Armfield and Noni Hazelhurst. They were both polite and friendly to low-on-the-totem-pole plebs like me, and to everyone else around them. They are lefties, sure, it goes with the territory, for the most part. But they are nice people. They don’t hound anyone. What part of that is so incomprehensible?

    So a Leftist judge has just decided that a government policy is “unconstitutional” if it is found to be motivated by “religious animus”.

    That sounds like a pretty good basis for repealing gay marriage or any number of liberal policies.

    Ann Coulter: Let’s Make Russia Our Sister Country!

    The more hysterical liberals become about Russia, the more your antennae should go up.
    Their selective misgivings with Russia are just like their selective alarm with (our ally) Chiang Kai-shek, leader of the nationalist Chinese government, and (our ally) Ngo Dinh Diem, president of South Vietnam.

    As explained in lavish detail in Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism*, liberals instinctively lunge toward treason.

    They say Putin is a “thug” and a “bully” who kills journalists. Liberals never used to mind Russian leaders killing journalists. Nor millions of scientists, writers, Christians, Jews, kulaks, Ukrainians and the entire 1980 Soviet Olympic hockey team.

    Have you guys heard of the Evil Empire? Now Democrats are hypersensitive to a Russian leader’s flaws?

    Liberals were cool with the show trials, the alliance with Hitler, the gulags, the forced starvations, the shooting down of American planes and goose-stepping through Eastern Europe.

    But that was when the Russian leader was Joseph Stalin or Nikita Khrushchev — not the beast Putin!

    Back then, liberals were spying for Stalin (Julius Rosenberg’s code name: “Liberal”), the U.S. president was calling the bloodthirsty dictator “Uncle Joe,” and The New York Times was covering up Stalin’s infamous crimes. In the storied history of fake news, the Times’ Walter Duranty won a Pulitzer Prize for his false reports denying the Ukrainian famine, in which more than 7 million people were deliberately starved to death.

    As far as the Times is concerned, those were Russia’s halcyon days!

    Back when Russia was actually threatening America with nuclear annihilation, Jimmy Carter warned Americans about their “inordinate fear of communism.” Sting sang that “the Russians love their children, too.”

    But now liberals are hopping mad with Putin. They could never forgive Russia for giving up communism.

    To add insult to injury, Putin embraced the Russian Orthodox Church! This was deeply offensive to fiercely Christophobic liberals.

    Russia’s descent into insanity and madness was clear when Putin refused to allow LGBTQ marches through Red Square. For having the same position on gays as Obama did, circa 2008, Russkies were walking on the fighting side of liberals!

    Trump’s election victory was the capstone of the left’s rage with Putin. To explain the inexplicable, Putin was made the center of liberals’ axis of evil, the mastermind of a malevolent plot to steal the election from Hillary Clinton.

    That’s how liberals became born-again John Birchers, seeing Russians under every bed. Now, no fear of Russia is inordinate. The Russians do NOT love their children, too.

    We really could have used some of this fighting spirit about 50 years ago when the Soviet Union sought total world domination and Stalin’s spies were crawling through the U.S. government. But back then, liberals were blackening the names of Whittaker Chambers, Richard Nixon and Sen. Joe McCarthy. (Later proved 100 percent correct by the top-secret Venona Project.)

    Russia’s loss of the left’s esteem happened very quickly. In 2008, The New York Times editorial page demanded that Obama “signal to the Russians that he wants better relations,” and complained of the “alarming” deterioration of “Russian-American relations” under Bush.

    It was considered the height of statesmanship when Obama was caught on a hot-mic in 2012, telling Russian president Dmitry Medvedev, “This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility. I understand you.”

    To hoots of laughter at the Democratic National Convention, Obama said: “You don’t call Russia our number one enemy — not Al-Qaida, Russia — unless you’re still stuck in a Cold War mind warp.”

    MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow couldn’t contain her hilarity over the GOP offering “an extra bonus of threatening Russia.”

    But today, Democrats (and two especially showboating Republicans) are horrified that Trump wants to get along with Russia. Tonight, the threatening evil of Vladimir Putin will be the top issue on Rachel Maddow’s show, assuming she still has a show. (Maybe she can get a copy of Putin’s tax returns!)

    When the same people who hailed Stalin as a beloved American ally are happy to threaten Putin with thermonuclear war, we may deduce that the left’s newfound Russia-phobia has some seditious objective.

    Historically, liberals show their manliness by demanding war with our friends and allies, while methodically undermining America’s ability to fight the wars it’s already in.

    The No. 1 enemy of Western civilization today isn’t non-communist Russia. It’s Islam.

    And who is a key ally in that fight? Russia has been dealing with these troublesome Muslims for centuries. It was Russian officials who tried in vain to warn our blind, incompetent government about the Boston Marathon bombers.

    The left’s hysteria about Russia isn’t just an attempt to delegitimize Trump. It’s the usual Christophobic fifth column rooting for the Islamization of the West.

    Fisky, there are hundreds of these Circuit Court judges, many of them appointed by Obummer. Finding one who would throw a spanner in the works of Trump’s initiatives would not be difficult at all.

    The fact that their “judgements” would not pass the judgement of first year law students is moot. Delay, delay, delay, and hope that something comes up. Meanwhile, nothing has been lost and by chance, lawyers’ fees just keep mounting up.

    He is.

    Americans have got a patriotic, conservative President.

    The idea of looking to Putin for leadership is demented at best. Maybe as free people, the notion of looking to politicians for “leadership” is a dumb idea.

    Putin embraced the Russian Orthodox Church!

    7 years later, a fellow officer had a wife who worked as a teacher at Punchbowl Boys, and she described the huge brawls involving knives between the supporters of Al Fatah (Arafat) and the other mobs – which when I just looked them up was the inspiration for the ‘splitters’ scene in Life of Brian – that was 1984 ! She was trying to get a transfer as the boys had no respect for the teachers, especially female, and their attitude was rubbing off on what was then the anglo majority.

    JC’s stupid attempt to embarrass me has backfired, as usual.

    Just to repeat, I grew up in the Sutherland Shire (which some Cats may remember as the scene of certain events) and not the Western Suburbs as he claimed, a straighout lie, as I have said this for years, from Day 1.

    It’s not a lie. But what is a lie, you obese drunk, is to describe a minor error that I happily corrected before, as a lie.

    I don’t resile from those comments.

    A long time ago, I worked with Neil Armfield and Noni Hazelhurst. They were both polite and friendly to low-on-the-totem-pole plebs like me, and to everyone else around them. They are lefties, sure, it goes with the territory, for the most part. But they are nice people. They don’t hound anyone. What part of that is so incomprehensible?

    Big noting herself again and dishonestly telling us that Neil isn’t a half wit leftwing idiot.

    Leaving that aside, the readership wants to know…. who’s larger in comp between you and the Nonester. We’re almost talking 747 jumbo proportions here.

    OK so there will be more water turbines on the Snowy scheme but no more storage. So we’ll run out of water sooner?
    Am I missing something?

    From the lay-persons point of view, presumably if the topography is right, you could instal a series of turbines up and down the mountain and use the same water multiple times.
    I have no idea if that is what they are talking about, or even if the Snowy lends itself to that.
    For example, I don’t know what head height you need to drive a turbine, and whether we have enough to create a ‘daisy-chain’ of turbines.
    Or maybe they are talking about “pumped hydro”, which I think captures the ‘used’ hydro water at the bottom and uses renewballs to pump it back to the top at times when there is excess renewballs capacity, and then the hydro becomes ‘kinetic’ electricity, ready to flow through the turbines on demand.
    This issue has been raised here before, and I doubt the economics of it add up if you are doing it from first principles. However, if you have a stupid amount of installed capacity of renewballs already on tap and it is useless as baseload …

    That’s pretty much the guts of it. They’re proposing to use Lake Eucumbene/Tantangara Reservoir at the top and Talbingo Reservoir at the bottom (difference in elevation 680m). New tunnels, pumps and power stations all to be built underground.

    What I can’t get my head around is that they reckon they can achieve an extra 2,000MW doing this while the scheme at the present time with 7 major hydro power stations produces 4,000MW at full capacity.

    GJ: “I have to say it is a little galling to be standing here next to a man who has been standing up with his Prime Minister bagging South Australia at every step of the way over the last six months to be standing here on this occasion, him suggesting that we want to work together.
    “It is a disgrace the way in which your government has treated our state.
    It is the most anti-SA government we have seen from a commonwealth government in living memory.”
    Turnbull, Shorten weigh in:
    Malcolm Turnbull hit out at Mr Weatherill’s behaviour, saying: “I understand that the Premier’s conduct spoke volumes about the Premier’s state of mind at the moment.”
    Mr Shorten claimed Mr Frydenberg had started the fight.
    I think it was the federal Liberals who tried to turn a terrible storm in South Australia into a political issue,” he said.
    “The federal government’s been rubbishing the South Australian government and energy measures for the last few months, so Jay Weatherill’s defended himself against a government who’s been very inconsistent in terms of its commitment to renewable energy.
    “I feel for Jay Weatherill. He’s got a federal government who plays politics and is subject to chaos.”
    Mr Shorten blamed four years of Coalition government for the chaotic national energy market.

    sorry if linked before from the Oz:

    A federal judge has blocked President Donald Trump’s revised travel ban hours before it was to take effect, marking the second time courts have thwarted Trump’s efforts to freeze immigration by refugees and citizens of some predominantly Muslim nations.

    This time, the ruling came from a judge in Hawaii who rejected the government’s claims that the travel ban is about national security, not discrimination.

    US District Judge Derrick Watson also said Hawaii would suffer financially if the executive order constricted the flow of students and tourists to the state, and that Hawaii was likely to succeed on a claim that the ban violates First Amendment protections against religious discrimination.

    Watson criticised what he called the “illogic” of the government’s arguments and cited “significant and unrebutted evidence of religious animus” behind the travel ban.

    He also noted that while courts should not examine the “veiled psyche” and “secret motives” of government decision-makers, “the remarkable facts at issue here require no such impermissible inquiry.”

    “For instance, there is nothing ‘veiled’ about this press release: ‘Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States,”‘ Watson wrote, referring to a statement Trump issued as a candidate.

    Trump called the ruling an example of “unprecedented judicial overreach” and said his administration would appeal it to the US Supreme Court. He also called his new travel ban a watered-down version of the first one, which he said he wished he could implement.

    “We’re going to win. We’re going to keep our citizens safe,” the president said at a rally in Nashville.

    I hate to be grammar nazi, but the correct expression is “I never said nuffink”.

    No, no. We have here the Anna Karenina Principle:

    Tolstoy posited a similar analogy in his novel Anna Karenina: “Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.”. By that, Tolstoy meant that for a marriage to be happy, it had to succeed in several key aspects.

    Here’s the Principle as applied to me above: Youse educated people are all alike; whereas every uneducated person is uneducated in their own way. So for grammar to be good, it has to follow several key rules of reference so youse can be all alike. Thus it is important to note that youse educated people always take the cliché way round (e.g. ‘I never said nuffink’) in your rules about us ungrammatical uneducated types.

    My grammar in the case in point, depicting my rather perilous education, is entirely suitable to me.
    As literary types, youse can call it a little bit of irony too. 😀

    My darling wife had never used on before and guessed 3 minutes would do an egg. (whole)

    2 minutes did it into a fine layer all over the inside of the microwave.

    S’ok, I can talk motorbike racing with them.
    Better not be Dykes on Bikes.
    I couldn’t think of a thing to say.
    Well, actually, I could. Used to ride a bike myself once.
    Without the dyke bit of course.
    I don’t wiggle that way. 🙂

    Just got a quote to turn a 7 x 4 metre wooden deck into a concrete slab.$8k.

    Doc works closely with neurosurgeon, who always manages to get me going when he rings up as the concrete truck driver asking if it’s OK to dump in my driveway. That or the local constabulary looking for certain person that goes by the name of … He really is very convincing.

    Has The Waffler spelled the simple equation, Energy In – Energy Out as yet ???? A 2000Mw dividend has that Musky smell about it.

    Absolutely correct – there will be transmission losses, pumping losses, pipe friction – “pumped hydro” I’m told is at best 70% efficient.

    The viability of the whole thing relies on the electricity market. When the wind’s a-blowin’, the sun’s shining and demand is low, cheap electricity will run the pumps. When demand is high and its dark, the turbines will spin and sell expensive electricity.

    As I’ve said before, the whole idea reminds me of an MC Escher drawing.

    And 2,000MW does sound a bit of a stretch.

  145. JC

    Last I heard he’s mooching at Charles Sturt Uni.

    Oh yea. I forget. He’s also mooching by sitting as a climate authoritarian on the Climate Authority. You can’t make this shit up if you tried.

    Does anyone know what the Climate Authority actually does?

    2 minutes did it into a fine layer all over the inside of the microwave.

    Lived next door to bloke on a Defence base for a while. He was a combat diver, and they are generally said to have had the front part of their brains removed to prevent fear underwater.

    His good lady wife – also in uniform – went away for a fortnight, leaving him with a few cooked refrigerated meals and so on. About day 10 he was down to his own devices, and so put an unopened can of tomatoes in the microwave on high for five minutes, to add to two slices of toast.

    The resulting explosion apparently took out the microwave and decorated the kitchen with tomatoes to all parts of the walls and ceiling.

    There was said to be a cold frosty silence for another fortnight in their place after her return.

    My sympathy, Calli. It’s a prick of a virus.

    That’s what Hairy calls it. Won’t go near it.

    Have you ever encountered a greenfilth who considered nuclear energy to be “green”?

    Bjorn Lomborg? Ok maybe not a green per se but the best I could do.

    Patrick Moore, co-founder of Greenpeace. You can’t get greener than that. Now outcast for his views on globule worming and nukes.

    Yes, Escher. His work provides a brilliant analogy for the recent H2O contra-flow brainwave and quite a good visual metaphor for Malcolm’s array of Prime Ministerial meanderings too.

    I loathe thee, Windows10!

    Hehe – I have new PC with Win 10 on it. It works really well now that the vendor has replaced the motherboard, power supply and SSD on warranty (Calli I have hard won empathy for you). Today it decided to update itself, which was fine.
    First thing it did after I rebooted and fired up browser was to open a propaganda page saying get Edge, da next best thing in Browserdom!
    I’m running IE11, which has what I want, and Edge doesn’t (nor does Crone). Why do they inflict crap on us like this?

  153. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B.

    Maybe we should all submit our quotes. Around here we have to pay an automatic 30% Eastern Suburbs loading. Comes with the territory, quite literally, often incrementally, postcode by postcode.

  154. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B.

    Today it decided to update itself, which was fine.

    It always does that, like on a cruise ship where you’re paying a mint a minute for the internet. It also keeps you supplied with nice pictures as you turn it on, a feature which later turns into a marketing ploy; surprise, surprise. Mine came with Edge installed and every time I use Chrome, Edge has a hissy fit telling me what Chrome can’t do that Edge can. Worse than a girlie spat on the Cat. 🙂

    Bjorn Lomborg? Ok maybe not a green per se but the best I could do.

    Lom of Borg is a window-licking Green alarmist of the highest order – his estimate of the CO2 ECS would make Sarah Sea-Patrol raise an eyebrow.

    He just doesn’t believe that building windmills produces the level of decarbonisation we need.

    Café news. Just now went outside and the lady kooka sees me and lands on the edge of the carport roof. Dinner pls. Ok. I render the mince in my hand into kooka sized meatballs and stick out my arm. Plomp.
    Three meatballs sucked up. Inertia kicks in and she takes a fourth.
    Hmm, I’m not hungry anymore.
    Meanwhile I see Mr is on the powerpole. He won’t come nearer than 5m even though all his kids and his mate will cheerfully sit on my arm. I decide I don’t really have enough mince left so I reach up and take fourth meatball out of Ms Kooka’s beak.
    What? Insult! Oh ok I wasn’t really hungry, she says in bird body language. Then takes off.
    So armed with sufficient meatballs I lay them out on the top of the fence and move back.
    Down he comes, eats two and leaves one.
    Ingrate.

    “Clive Charles Hamilton AM FRSA is an Australian public intellectual [sic] and Professor of Public Ethics at the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics and the Vice-Chancellor’s Chair in Public Ethics at Charles Sturt University. ”

    On the latest rankings for Australian Universities, CSU is ranked at #25.

    Clive has also recently turned NIMBY:

    On the Dutch election, bear in mind that Rutte’s PVV are fiscal conservatives and want to pare back the welfare state. He needs to form a coalition with two of Wilders, CDA or D66. While its likely to be the latter two, he will always have the threat that one of them could be dropped in favour of Wilders, in order to keep them in line.

    So its likely that, while migrants will still be able to enter the Netherlands, they’d better get jobs as they won’t be getting welfare.

    Mater at 1802, I recall reading a comment by a greenie some years ago, to the effect that finding a source of cheap, green, energy for the world would be worse than giving a loaded machine gun to a child.

    It was never about the environment. See john constantine’s posts for the back story. Hint, it is all about power for the select few.

    My deck is on the ground near the pool. Consists of a steel framework bolted into the ground. The planks atop it are getting old and battered.

    Want to have them lifted off and replaced by say EkoDeck which Bunnings stocks – it’s a plastic/sawdust artificial thing. Deck is 7x4m with access down the side of the house.
