    I think Muslims subscribe to the same definition of “peace” as the old Soviet Union:
    “Peace exists when all resistance has been eliminated”.

    Time for bed.

    Peace came about when all unbelievers had been killed, converted to Islam,or recognized their inferior status as “dhimmis”, subservient to Muslims in every way – and paid the special tax – the jizya, as mandated in the Koran.

  2. No, that’s bullshit.

    Yeah, you’re right Dot. I made that last bit up.
    But then, I’m just a stupid crank.
    Nonetheless, JC believes Man is heating the planet.
    Apparently we erected a big greenhouse around it . . .

  3. Andrew

    There is not a shred of evidence to support the claim that temps are static since 1950.

    According to your own reference HadCRUT4.3, temps have barreled up globally since 1950 relatively speaking.

    HadCRUT is not “my reference” – I described it as FakeData above. I use it primarily to reverse engineer the magnitude and timing of the 60 year cycle (which is not affected by the rampant past-cooling). This is useful in interpreting RSS in my climate model, as RSS is not yet 40yo.

  4. JC

    Yes, it’s a favourite of Andrew’s. He was using it over at JoNova’s five years ago. Ditto the “I’m an anti-climate change warrior” meme.

    Unlike you, you demented fucking cripple. Last week you were peddling another one of your ridiculous crank filled books that you were some sort of climate soothsayer as early as 1990.

    You’re not a serious person and just a crank. Fuck off.

    Hey JC, wanna improve the blog?
    I have a suggestion. Leave.

    Well said. A proven liar, like J.C, should kicked off this blog a long time ago.

  8. Andrew

    Yes, it’s a favourite of Andrew’s. He was using it over at JoNova’s five years ago. Ditto the “I’m an anti-climate change warrior” meme.

    Sure. Andrew is almost as common a name as Muhammad, but you’ve memorised comments on JoNova. Which incidentally is strictly moderated for behaviour, and would never allow such a comment but let’s not let that get in the way of another lie.

    Why don’t you call JoNova and ask her. You can put to her the view that “Andrew” is a #FakeSceptic who is peddling CAGW theory for many years and Hi Alaning about his anti CAGW efforts. You can write back and tell us what she said. Since you are so sure that “Andrew” uniquely identifies me beyond doubt I’m even prepared to stipulate that she will correctly identify me in the process.

    What is wrong with the Japanese?

    According to the uploader, this restaurant in Japan ‘tries to make dining alone less awkward by seating patrons with giant stuffed animals’

  10. JC

    Why would I leave rambler? I’m not a crank like some of you here peddling rediculous views. Look at what you’ve done now. You’ve excited Ronery.

  11. Last week you were peddling another one of your ridiculous crank filled books that you were some sort of climate soothsayer as early as 1990.

    Yeah. “The Green Hoax Effect” was published in January 1990.

    Your point is . . .

    Greenhouse and other myths from the Mufti-National corporation.

    Okay.

    Who sponsored Rachel Carson? Pretty sure it wasn’t Monsanto or Ciba Geigy.

    Wouldn’t be seen with a stuffed animal be even more embarrassing?

    Besides what’s wrong with eating alone? I do it quite often when working, nip out, grab a quick meal and go back to work.

  17. Well, still no sign of the cat, so it’s pretty safe to assume she’s finally curled up and died.
    Probably under the bed. I’ll find her and bury her in the morning.
    Definitely time for bed.

    Perhaps the easiest thing to do is to just consider everything the Democrats say, directly or through the media, which just prints as truth handouts from the same Democratic sources, as a lie. You’d save a lot of time and most likely be right.

    Hence all the panicked, idiotic attempts by global status quo propagandists to hide out in the glasshouse.

    The world has seen how the UN Open Border Child Sex Slave Traders network and launder through absurdities such as the Qataris, Modern “Art/s”, Lobbyist’s and “Children’s” Foundations etc., and can’t unsee it.

    There simply isn’t enough Arkenside to go around. A good time to invest in millstones.

    Tommy Robinson attacked by Antifa at Britain First rally
    Rebel Media

    Apr 2, 2017
    Tommy Robinson and Caolan Robertson of TheRebel.media headed to the March Against Terror in London this weekend to report on the event and media reaction. They were immediately attacked by Antifa. [AND prevented from doing their legitimate job of Reporting for Canadian based Rebel Media, by being threatened with arrest by the police if they didn’t leave]

  25. classical_hero

    The same Michael Flynn that the FBI cleared? But talking to the congressional hearings would be a place you could need immunity because of the tricks that the Democrats will play. You can never be too cautious with them.

    Tommy Robinson: Are You Against Sharia Law Here In The UK; Watch This Response! ⋆

    British Activist Tommy Robinson joined The UK Branch of Rebel Media on Saturday and took on Antifa and even had a frank discussion with a Muslim woman.

    Robinson was on my radio show just a few days ago, and he had a word for Americans about how Islam was taking over the UK, and it would happen to America if we didn’t find a way to stop it.

    In this Rebel Media video clip, you will see Robinson take on the Antifa bullies and also do an interview with a Muslim woman who can’t answer whether or not she is against Sharia Law.

    Don’t you find it strange Muslim’s can’t say what they are against if it has any dealings with radical religion teachings?

    Newspoll is out: 53:47

    Newspoll: Coalition slips after divisive debates on company tax cuts, race-hate laws

    The latest Newspoll, conducted for The Australian, shows the government is trailing Labor by 47 to 53 per cent in two-party terms.

    Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull also lost ground to Opposition Leader Bill Shorten as preferred prime minister to lead by only 41 per cent to 32 per cent on the key leadership measure.

    The LNP primary vote is 36%, which means after you split out the Nats that Turnbull’s mob may be getting 32%. That should focus the minds of a few backbenchers.

    Buchanan: “In the new struggles of the new century, it is not impossible that Russia may be on the winning side”

    Is Putin the ‘Preeminent Statesman’ of Our Times?
    By PATRICK J. BUCHANAN • March 31, 2017

    “If we were to use traditional measures for understanding leaders, which involve the defense of borders and national flourishing, Putin would count as the preeminent statesman of our time.

    “On the world stage, who could vie with him?”

    So asks Chris Caldwell of The Weekly Standard in a remarkable essay in Hillsdale College’s March issue of its magazine, Imprimis.

    What elevates Putin above all other 21st-century leaders?

    “When Putin took power in the winter of 1999-2000, his country was defenseless. It was bankrupt. It was being carved up by its new kleptocratic elites, in collusion with its old imperial rivals, the Americans. Putin changed that.

    “In the first decade of this century, he did what Kemal Ataturk had done in Turkey in the 1920s. Out of a crumbling empire, he resurrected a nation-state, and gave it coherence and purpose. He disciplined his country’s plutocrats. He restored its military strength. And he refused, with ever blunter rhetoric, to accept for Russia a subservient role in an American-run world system drawn up by foreign politicians and business leaders. His voters credit him with having saved his country.”

    Epic Sunday Talk: Commerce Secretary Ross -vs- Jake Tapper…
    Posted on April 2, 2017 by sundance

    Oh man, THIS is epic.

    This is what happens when you take an intellectual gnat carrying nothing but ‘talking points’ (Tapper), and have them interview a Subject Matter Expert (Ross).

    Secretary Wilburine hilariously flicks off the stuttering gnat with an immediate ‘Triple Farkas‘.

    • Tapper: Muh “Chinese currency manipulation”?
    • Wilburine: ‘I’m the Secretary of Commerce not Treasury’.

    • Tapper: Muh “Well, Builder Trump used Chinese steel to build”?
    • Wilburine: ‘Builders hire contractors, they purchase materials’.

    • Tapper: Muh “But, but… Trump signed XO in different room”?
    • Wilburine: ‘Where President Trump signs orders is not of particular concern’.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=2&v=zG9yeNyAz7c
    .
    Important note: Notice how not a single question of Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross was related in any way to commerce or trade.

    Australian politics is simply treading water until the last traitor drowns and we can finally get back to electing patriotic grown ups.

    Anyone who couldn’t see that installing the ultra-narcissistic Peter Pan Turnbull, was actually screaming this fact to the world, should simply refrain from political commentary.

  32. feelthebern

    In 20 years time, will Malcolm Turnbull be remembered for:
    1) His light bulb “initiative”‘
    2) almost losing the unlosable election in 2016;
    3) making $300mill in the late 1990’s but 20 years later, still only referred to as being worth $300mill;
    4) none of the above.

    There has actually been calls from Swedish police to get help from the military in case of extreme emergencies (like terror attacks).

    Here are two articles today. The first has a fine headline:

    ZUMWALT: In the Wake of the Westminister Bridge Attack, What the Mice of Gough Island Can Teach Us About Islam

    There is an uninhabited island, Gough, located in the South Atlantic Ocean, that has been a breeding ground for the albatross for centuries. The bird population has thrived, never knowing predators. This changed recently.

    Several years ago, mice—possibly from a passing ship—made their way to the island. They now thrive by feasting upon albatross chicks. Amazingly, conservationists report, the mice attack live chicks—outweighing them 250 fold—while the chicks’ parents do nothing to fend them off.

    I’ve dived through most of the article, which is well worth reading, to extract the bit about the mice. That is because the following article so perfectly describes human albatrosses it is scary:

    On Immigration, Swedish Press Circles the Wagons

    This article really is essential reading. The strange blindness and incomprehension it reports is amazingly Eloi-like. H.G. Wells nailed it.

    FMD. The retard running Sky News reckons he’s going to relaunch Outsiders — with a cast of numpties who won’t offend the lefty management:

    Has Sky News’s Outsiders program been axed? After last week’s sacking of the program’s star, Mark Latham, the show was a no-show yesterday. But this was just to allow everyone at the network to pause and regroup after the dramas of the week. The good ship Outsiders will launch out of its dry dock on Sunday and yes, there will be a panel of three at its helm. Diary has no news on the fate of Latham’s co-presenters Ross Cameron and Rowan Dean. Whether they ride off into the sunset along with Latham, just like Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond did from Top Gear, remains to be seen. But Outsiders will be back with new cast members, yet to be determined. Diary thinks that the program would greatly benefit from having a woman as one of those panellists.

    For chrissake, Ruperdink, you’ve just sink millions into this mismanaged corpse. There must be someone in your organisation who understands the Fox News formula for profit and success. First order of business: get rid of this incompetetent time-server Frangopoulos.

    Note: the idiot who suggested Outsiders should have a wymmymses on the panel used to work for the Graniaud (a.k.a. Communists’R’Us).

    Ho hum; this is playground stuff, all ego and…ego; win at all costs. You are a bog standard troll with a creepy component. From now on you shall be an object of ridicule: when I can be bothered.

    I see that JC is continuing his tradition of making friends wherever he goes.

    I suppose that he will now add cohenite to his long list of “battereds” – being the many people here who he has abused and lied about.

    Australian politics is simply treading water until the last traitor drowns and we can finally get back to electing patriotic grown ups.

    But where are those patriotic grown ups…nothing on or even over the horizon. Depressing.

  38. cohenite

    If you don’t have a theory/ set of beliefs on the subject why the fuck are you even discussing all this, abusing people and referring to them/me as trolls for past day and half. Are you that fucked up in the head?

    I was merely pointing out that the use of the word greenhouse is deceptive; it seems a simple concept; perhaps it is beneath you. I suppose if I have to have a theory my theory is alarmists are opportunistic liars. I can’t ever imagine having a theory about you.

    Why would I be ashamed of a set of opinions/theory that I gleaned from the likes of Watts, Pielke, Bishop Hill, Climate Audit, Curry and a few others after reading them over many years. To repeat, I’m not a scientist unlike you, so if they’re wrong I’m happy to absorb whatever replaces their view.

    I’m not ashamed either; at least for myself; I’m amazed you think my point about greenhouse warming being different from atmospheric warming is somehow different from what your list of friends (some of whom I know personally) think is happening or not happening with CO2.

    I do concede I like arguing.

  39. According to the uploader, this restaurant in Japan ‘tries to make dining alone less awkward by seating patrons with giant stuffed animals’

    Yeah, that would definitely make things less awkward 🙄

    Regarding The Myth of Whities brung the disease which killed the natives –

    Here is an alternative view.

    Smallpox came with the trepangers and moved South.

    VD was endemic where the Japanese pearlers visited – this is documented in Keith Windschuttles book before the current one, where he cites the missionary’s reports of zero births due to disease from prostituting girls and women to the Japanese.

    I see Ayaan has cancelled due to security concerns

    – Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Islam critic and author, cancels Australian tour

    Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a noted Islam critic and author, has cancelled her Australian tour due to security concerns.

    Hirsi Ali, who was due to speak in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, has attracted critics for speaking out about ­reforming traditional Islam and confronting militant Islam.

    The Somali-born Dutch-American activist, author, and former politician, is an outspoken opponent of female genital mutilation.

    Last month the organisation hosting her — Think Inc — said it had been harassed about her appearance.

    Its insurers were contacted and warned there could be trouble, and venues where she was scheduled to speak had been contacted and warned that there would be protests where she was due to appear.

    Much of this was done by an individual called Syed Murtaza Hussain of the Council for the Prevention of Islamophobia Inc.

  42. Helen

    cont: –

    He informed Festival Hall in Melbourne there would be 5000 protesters outside the venue if the engagement went ahead. There have been other initiatives, including an abortive appeal on Change.org to prevent Ali from speaking.

    The commenters are outraged.

    Oh yea, that’s right. You spent a day and half arguing with me about the deceptive use of the word greenhouse gas and we’ll ignore the rest of the convoluted nonsense you spoke about.

    I’m not ashamed either; at least for myself;

    I don’t imagine you are, but you ought to be.

    I’m amazed you think my point about greenhouse warming being different from atmospheric warming is somehow different from what your list of friends (some of whom I know personally) think is happening or not happening with CO2.

    Friends? Cohenite, what you really mean is that you attended some of the speeches they may have given in Australia and you later sucked up to them after the proceedings. Isn’t that closer to the truth?

    I do concede I like arguing.

    So it was arguing then. Nothing else.

    Even Andrew came into the discussion and admonished you for being a crank, it wasn’t just me.

    I used to think highly of you at one time over the the climate issue but not any more. Stick to muzzling the site.

    Johanna.

    I see that JC is continuing his tradition of making friends wherever he goes.

    I don’t have much of a problem making friends with people I like to be friends with. Lots of people have met me and wouldn’t dis me. How about you Johanna?

    I suppose that he will now add cohenite to his long list of “battereds” – being the many people here who he has abused and lied about.

    Cohenite isn’t that sort of person. I’m a little disappointed in him, but he’s not a battered/fan club member.

    Regarding Sunday penalty rates.

    My daughter works casual at a major chain (in most Westfields) and on Sundays has been earning $50 hour. Staff have been told that when current agreement ends (she is not sure when) they will no longer get double time.

    She has calculated the savings would mean they could employ two more staff for the whole day. The business is very successful but employs 3-4 less on Sundays than it does on Saturdays although number of customers is similar. It is a business where staff more than pay for themselves (even on Sundays) and sales can be lost if not enough staff working.

    It will be interesting to see if they do employ two more once they reduce hourly Sunday rates. If this was replicated across their multiple stores would be equal to the organisation creating at least 25 full time jobs.
