    f a stranger who is black or white or Asian or whatever starts talking with me, I have ZERO prior assumption about what their individual IQ might be before the discussion starts. I let that reveal itself over the course of the conversation. Their group attributes are, for my purposes, irrelevant.

    Bollocks! your brain has already wired in any perceived differences you have experienced over time as a stereotype. This claim to know how one’s brain is wired neutrally is just a form of virtue signaling.

    You are a master of the half truth. Of course I assume that the white university professor is smarter than the Indian taxi driver. I would probably be right. This has nothing to do with the “hard wiring” of my brain about race. It’s just a fact, based on reality, which was not “hard wired” into my brain.

    When you have time, perhaps you could explain how the children of the post-war immigrants, especially the Greek and Italian peasant ones, did so well. Low IQ almost to a person. Oh, and the Maltesers. All their parents had were a few goats and withering grape vines in the old country. No education, would no doubt have scored low on an IQ test.

    I think, too, that you should acknowledge that IQ tests don’t measure wisdom or judgement.

    Bwahahahahahahaha!

    Monty, don’t ever change.

    Trump’s opponents on Capitol Hill are elected Republicans, which he has shown by attacking them on a near-daily basis. Trump’s opponents in the media (as Bannon sees it from the Breitbart perspective) are Drudge and Murdoch, both Republicans. Trump’s opponents in corporate America are Republicans, e.g. the CEOs who just left his councils.

    THWACK!THWACK!THWACK!

    Thanks for proving that you are so amazingly stupid as to have not yet realised that trump’s enemies include the RINO’s who are part of the Washington power elite.

    That’s been obvious to everyone with an above room temperature IQ for well over two years (I know that you aspire to one day having a room temperature IQ). Remember the establishment Republicans lining up in opposition to Trump all through the pre-election period? No? Too stupid to notice that, were you?

    I mean, POTUS is deliberately promoting non-establishment Republicans to run against incumbent Establishment Washington elite RINO’s in Congress and the senate. And even with that evidence you still have not worked it out yet?

    THWACK!THWACK!THWACK!THWACK!THWACK!THWACK!THWACK!THWACK!
    THWACK!THWACK!THWACK!THWACK!THWACK!THWACK!THWACK!THWACK!

    Daily Mail reporting that David Bowie was a child molester. Cooler than Rolf and Cliff so he got a pass, I guess. Plus the dead can’t sue.
    Bowie virtually never expressed an interest in children as a part of his shows nor incorporated them in his act. Did he even have children? I’m calling Bullshit on this one, unless the record of note Daily Mail comes up with a smoking gun.

    I have seen quotes on the internet claiming that indigenous IQ averages about 62. That seems to me way low. But let’s say it’s true, it makes you wonder how much of the gap could be closed by better nutrition, forcing kids to go to school, and so on

    Essentially all of it, Fisky. There were some good studies done on this by British Colonial authorities in Straits Settlements during the period 1900-1930s. They found that low-IQ labourers imported from southern China as “coolies” (as the term was back then) themselves had seriously improved mental capacity after several years of improved (bot necessarily good) nutrition and no famine periods. Their children had vastly improved physical size and strength, as well as greatly improved intellectual capacity, and their grandchildren were not distinguishable from well-nourished European norms by the 1990s.

    If you go to Singapore you’ll see this live in the streets where you have 3 generations of females of one family walking about. It’s especially noticeable in Nyonya females over 3 generations. The grand-daughters are of entirely ‘western’ body shape, taller, bustier and with wider hips than Mum and she’s the same relative to Grandma.

    Intellect seems to recover much faster from poor nutrition and famine periods than bodily changes, though.

    Brendan O’Neill’s column in the Oz is awesome.

    PC extremists police thought by rewriting the world’s history

    Everyone’s smashing statues. From Islamic State hotheads sledgehammering ancient artefacts in old Mesopotamian cities to plummy students at Oxford demanding the removal of busts of old colonialists, waging war on the past is all the rage.

    A Year Zero mentality is on the march. People seem hellbent on wiping out history, making it invisible, and starting society all over again, cleansed of the likenesses of dead people of whom they disapprove.

    This fury against monuments is presented as good and radical. The statue-smashers say they simply want to erase the faces and names of people who did bad things to show how far society has progressed and to make minority groups feel more comfortable when they’re out in public.

    One of the protesters against Rhodes says, “There is a violence in having to walk past the statue every day.” There’s a medieval feel to this, this idea that even things made of stone have great power and evil in them.

    For an Oxford student to describe a statue as an act of violence really is similar to the Islamic State hammer-wielders’ belief that pre-Islamic icons have the power to pollute men’s souls and thus must be destroyed.

    Anyone who thinks this policing of the past will stop once all statues of Confederates and colonialists have been knocked down is in for a shock.

    As perfect a characterisation of the insanity and religiosity of the modern Left as you’ll ever read.

  9. Bannon out, good. You can spin it all you like, but the Trump administration is a SCOAMF. Next out is probably Gorka.

    My suspicions confirmed!!!

    Bannon left the White House directly for Breitbart as a purely strategic move.

    It both feeds the chooks known as the idiot left media AND makes Breitbart FAR stronger than they’ve ever been, thanks the Bannon’s massively higher profile from the White House.

    Muttley, you’ve been played. Again. You are so predictable that you can be manipulated the way a child manipulates a lolly.

    Muttley, I could place you a trap that says “yes, this is a trap”, and you’d still fall for it if it said something like “click her for video of Trump saying something stupid”. You cannot help yourself. You’re so ideologically fixed that you can never learn any more than you can denounce Stalin.

    Sometimes I just like to shoot fish in barrels. No, it’s not challenging, but it is light entertainment.

    So, Trump is out-of-touch, and the alt-left is in touch with Americans, eh?

    maybe not

    • A strong majority (62 percent) of Americans favor leaving the Confederate statues standing as historical markers

    • Overwhelming numbers of Republicans (86 percent) favor this, as do 61 percent of Independents

    • The only group with a majority favoring removal (57 percent) are “Strong Democrats” — as opposed to “Soft Democrats,” who slightly favor keeping them (52 percent)

    • When defined by political ideology, only Liberal/Very Liberal people muster a majority for taking statues down (57 percent). Among self-described Moderates, 67 percent favor leaving the statues standing. A whopping 81 percent of Conservative/Very Conservative people favor the statues staying in place

    • Unsurprisingly, the Northeast is the region of the country most in favor of removing the statues — but even there, a majority (53 percent) backs leaving the statues standing

    • Here’s a stunner: 44 percent of African-Americans polled believe in keeping the statues standing. Of Latinos, 65 percent believe the statues should remain

    • Comfortable majorities — no less than 60 percent — in each age cohort support the statues
    This is barely an issue with white Evangelicals, 85 percent of whom back the statues. Only nine percent favor removal, with the rest unsure

    • On Trump’s response to Charlottesville, 52 percent believe it hasn’t been strong enough
    Of that number, 52 percent of Independents believe Trump has fallen short; only 30 percent are satisfied

    It appears that the alt-left is actively reinforcing Trump’s stature among the people who elected him.

    How does this not help guarantee him another win in 2020?

    Calli, next door have the grotty and aged look white travertine marble on their verandahs and entranceway walk. I know it is tres authentic etc. and our Italian tiler was shocked when I suggested using a high gloss seal on the indoor area in our foyer (I’m still going to make him do it though, I want a marble console and a massive flower arrangement on it there too, before you enter the hallway; plus we turn it into Santa’s grotto at Christmas). He agrees that an invisible matt sealer would be good for the outside as long as it is redone every two years so that will happen as well. I think he likes the various holes in the stone, fingers them lovingly, and doubt if he will do much to fill them during the grouting.

    WTF? Your neighbours are lowering the tone? “I want a marble console (whatever that is.)”

    Narcissism alert.

    From Islamic State hotheads sledgehammering ancient artefacts in old Mesopotamian cities to plummy students at Oxford demanding the removal of busts of old colonialists, waging war on the past is all the rage.

    There was, and still is, a large statue of Cecil Rhodes, in the centre of Capetown. Just after the installation of the Mandel Government, it was suggested that the statue should be removed. The response was that for better or for worse, Rhodes was part of South African history, and the statue would stay. What have the South Africans got, that the Yanks haven’t?

    Wouldn’t surprise if, after its national inquiry for people to identify politically incorrect statues and monuments, they will compile a list and vandalism will begin.

    They are not even very bright. It was only when someone overseas started something that they suddenly became aware of thos new form of “oppression.”

    Apparently, oppression suddenly comes into existence when someone else tells you about it.

  20. C.L.

    Trump’s problem is that he is really an Independent president – the first for a hundred and something years. That makes personnel selection and maintenance extremely difficult. The presidency is too big to staff with friends and personally loyal associates. Nonetheless it’s a rollicking, wonderful presidency – smashing the tired old scripted template to smithereens.

    There are more than two factions on the right at the moment, db. Of course USSR is not going to choose Establishment GOP, but he will be torn between Drudge on Trump’s side and Breitbart on the alt-right’s side. He’s probably going to choose Breitbart because Drudge is aligned with Kushner who is one of those suspicious globalists, if you know what I mean. It’s a tangled web.

    Chomsky has never really understood direct action, and sticks dogmatically to Bakunin who says “Absolute freedom to organize associations even for allegedly immoral purposes including even those associations which advocate the undermining (or destruction) of individual and public freedom.” Most antifa don’t give a toss as to what Chomsky says, or any other liberal intellectuals

    Radio legend Gary O’Callaghan passes away aged 83
    The Daily Telegraph
    8 minutes ago
    Radio legend Gary O’Callaghan has sadly passed away at the age of 83.

    O’Callaghan was known for his exclusive radio coverage of The Petrov affair and, later, his long running 2UE breakfast show.

    O’Callaghan was born in Melbourne but moved to Sydney as a young boy.

    In 1951, at the age of 17, he fulfilled an ambition to go into radio when he started as an office boy at 2SM.

    He was also a successful voice actor in many radio plays of the time.

    I see all the political and academic”experts ” on terrorism ,are wetting their knickers trying to make excuses fpr the actions of the Islamic invaders . The reasons for the hatred of the civilised world is the filthy psychotic Koran ,It actually encourages terrorist acts ,and the filthy witch doctors who actively encourage terror are part of the problem. The solution is so simple ,No muslims. No terror ,that’s it no argument. That’s the solution .before the muslim invasion of civilised countries ,there was little terror ,a few nutter Irish and Basque s. That was it since the invasion terror happens on a daily basis . The ideal situation would be mass deportations. If their home countries refused to accept them bomb the shit out of them till they did , then isolate them , sell them obsolete weapons and unlimited ammunition ,and let their own madness and hatred consign them into oblivion . You know this is true !

  33. but he will be torn between Drudge on Trump’s side and Breitbart on the alt-right’s side.

    But these two ‘sides’ overlap the other and the God-Emperor still has huge support among the alt-right. So there is as yet no need to choose sides, and letting Bannon loose on establishment Republicans is more grist to their mill. In fact, the longer this plays out the better it gets for the alt-right and the worse for establishment Republicans.

  34. incoherent rambler

    He’s off to the High Court too.

  41. City Journal on the SPLC and Provocateur Journalism:

    CNN presents itself as a news organization, yet today it posted a dubious story titled “Here are all the active hate groups where you live,” based entirely on data from the Southern Poverty Law Center. The SPLC is not the equivalent of the National Weather Service, the USGS, or CDC, to put it mildly. It is risible for CNN to recite SPLC data uncritically, with no additional validation, as a credible list of “domestic hate groups,” let alone to describe SPLC’s data as “widely accepted.” As I recently chronicled in City Journal, the SPLC is far from a reliable, nonpartisan, and authoritative source.
    The SPLC has been criticized from all points of the political spectrum for its incessant fundraising (resulting in the accumulation of a “surplus” exceeding $300 million, some of which is invested offshore in Cayman Island accounts), lavish executive salaries (some topping $400,000 annually), and a litigation program calculated to generate sensational headlines rather than tangible results alleviating “Southern poverty.” Morris Dees, one of SPLC’s co-founders, has used the SPLC to promote his political agenda—and enrich himself.
    As for chronicling “hate groups,” the SPLC is principally focused on maintaining lists of individuals and groups with opposing politics, and subjectively labeling them “hate groups” or “extremists,” often without justification. SPLC senior fellow Mark Potok, who is in charge of maintaining the lists, has declared that “our aim in life is to destroy these groups, to completely destroy them.” Even Politico has called SPLC’s agenda into question, asking “Has a Civil Rights Stalwart Lost Its Way?” The writer of that story, Ben Schreckinger, noted the frequent charge that “the SPLC is overplaying its hand, becoming more of a partisan progressive hit operation than a civil rights watchdog.” Politico’s skeptical look at SPLC joined a torrent of criticism appearing in other publications, including the Wall Street Journal, Harper’s, The Weekly Standard, Reason, The Federalist, and even The Progressive.

    Have had to go back to having paper bills mailed out to pay our Telstra account.

    The email version were being swamped by fairly similar bills from Telstra which were in fact spam. Some were so good you could not tell them from real bills.

    Despite this spam coming through a Telstra Bigpond account, they appear to be unable to stop such emails.

    How hard would it be to write a program to send all emails with the word “Telstra” in them to a technician, who makes an instant decision with a click to have them blocked and bounced by any Telstra server.

    Nope, instead they would rather have people writing web sites featuring people looking joyous became they are getting Telstra “service”. Or writing other web sites talking about how they are “connecting with diversity and inclusion” their 36, 000 employees and 5, 000 overseas contractors.

  46. At the Orgy of Self-Righteousness:

    Of course, it is an enormous lie that Trump ever called white nationalists very fine people. He explicitly condemned them. His comment was obviously referring to the non-racist protesters dismayed by the removal of Lee’s statue. Notice that nobody in the press actually quotes Trump’s statement, since that would expose their “reporting” as despicable propaganda worthy of a Soviet show trial.

    The fake news has never been faker, as puffed-chest “anchors” instruct their audiences to trust their dishonest paraphrase of Trump’s remarks. And of course here too the “conservative” press joined in the journalistic malpractice. The politically correct weenies at the New York Post, for example, ran outrageously dishonest headlines about Trump calling the white supremacists fine people.

    A parade of “conservative” prognosticators and effete Republicans say that this controversy will inflict permanent damage on Trump. Before you take their comments seriously, go back and look at what these cocky jackasses said about Trump’s chances in the Republican primaries. If any of these frauds ever tried to run against Trump, he would crush them. Pundits on stations with anemic ratings, and pols who couldn’t win their own states, claim that they speak for the “country.”

    I have seen quotes on the internet claiming that indigenous IQ averages about 62. That seems to me way low. But let’s say it’s true, it makes you wonder how much of the gap could be closed by better nutrition, forcing kids to go to school, and so on.

    Hrm, an IQ of 62 seems pretty low – IIRC, that’s only 2% of the population. According to this site (and I wouldn’t take it to the bank – from what I understand, shrinks don’t like to attach qualitative descriptions to IQ ranges as they tend not to fit individual subjects very neatly, however the following should give one some idea:

    50-69 — Mildly retarded

    Educable, can learn to care for oneself, employable in routinized jobs but require supervision. Might live alone but do best in supervised settings. Immature but with adequate social adjustment, usually no obvious physical anomalies.

    Moderate and mild retardation, contrary to the more severe forms, are typically not caused by brain damage but part of the normal variance of intelligence, and therefore largely genetic and inherited. This is important with regard to the question whether or not retarded persons should have children; for especially the moderate and mild forms of retardation, with which it is physically possible to have children, are the most likely to be inherited.

    70-79 — Borderline retarded

    Limited trainability. Have difficulty with everyday demands like using a phone book, reading bus or train schedules, banking, filling out forms, using appliances like a video recorder, microwave oven, or computer, et cetera, and therefore require assistance from relatives or social workers in the management of their affairs. Can be employed in simple tasks but require supervision.

    80-89 — Below average

    Above the threshold for normal independent functioning. Can perform explicit routinized hands-on tasks without supervision as long as there are no moments of choice and it is always clear what has to be done. Assembler, food service.

    15% of the population has an IQ of 85 or less.

    Jordan Peterson contends that if you have an IQ of 80 (or lower, which 10% of the population has) you have trouble reading instructions and whatnot. Basically, you’re functionally unemployable for almost all jobs. And with increasing mechanisation, these jobs are going to become even scarcer.

    … is not hilariously funny. It’s not even mildly amusing or clever and could well be evidence that you, rather than the one you bait so badly, are actually retarded. You should ask yourself your own question : How can you be so brainless and not make messes in the house?

  57. But these two ‘sides’ overlap the other and the God-Emperor still has huge support among the alt-right. So there is as yet no need to choose sides, and letting Bannon loose on establishment Republicans is more grist to their mill. In fact, the longer this plays out the better it gets for the alt-right and the worse for establishment Republicans.

    What is that sound in the distance? Sounds like the ocean… ooh it’s a 2018 wave election!

    All this unity is going to be delightful when the Republicans have to raise the debt ceiling and fund the government. Which has to happen pretty soon.

    When Bowie was going through his ‘shag anything with a pulse’ phase, it wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest that a few of those he…er…bedded were below the age of consent. I doubt he would have been checking IDs at the time. So pretty much like every other rock star of the ages. Does this mean we should consider him a rockspider? No, I don’t think so. Only if he actively sought out the underage – THEN that’s a different story. Like it’d be a different story if he knows some 13 year old girl’s age, drugs her, then anally rapes her while she’s unconscious. But if it’s just another one of the thousand coming through the revolving door, then that’s something else.

    Alternatively, we need to reclassify all rock stars and rock star bands who would sleep with their groupies and other assorted females they’d pick up on tour as child sex offenders – the lot of them.

    Republicans and conservatives chase after the mob headed for Lee’s statue, there stands Trump like a stonewall.

    How did Jackson acquire the nickname “Stonewall”?
    This famous nickname was first given to Jackson by General Bernard Bee on the battlefield at First Manassas on July 21, 1861. It refers to Jackson’s steadfastness in the face of the enemy. Jackson’s demeanor inspired Bee (a friend from Jackson’s years at West Point) to shout to his troops, “Look, men, there is Jackson standing like a stone wall! Let us determine to die here, and we will conquer!”
    Jackson’s troops also referred to him as “Old Jack.”

    The great mistake Trump made at his presser at Trump Towers was his weird insistence that at the Charlottesville march there were good people on both sides. No, no there weren’t. There were antifa thugs and white nationalist thugs. I am sure that there are many millions of Americans who have an intellectual objection to the whitewashing of their country’s history by the removal of Confederate statues and memorials and the like from the public squares of certain parts of the US. However, those types of people are not going to be marching shoulder-to-shoulder with torch-carrying skinheads chanting ‘J-oos will not replace us’ or whatever it was they were saying. Not a snowball’s chance. What we saw out there was a genuine basket of deplorables – the shit of the left (who are quite mainstream within their movement) and the shit of the right (who are fringe-dwellers of theirs – hell, not even the leaders of the ‘alt right’ went near them). I have no idea why Trump would say there were lots of good people on both sides of that protest, because there weren’t.

    It’s a pity because Trump fluffled a genuine opportunity to start moving towards post-racial politics – and I think that’s what he was trying to do by placing a pox on both their houses (deserved) and also saying there were lots of good people on both sides, too (untrue, and derailed his whole message).

    The US needs a President who isn’t afraid to tiptoe around race. The black community in the USA has a huge problem with 3/4 children born out of wedlock. The schools they get sent to are simply awful. So many of them have terrible, terrible father figures. This ‘thug life’ ideal is so corrosive – if you’re successful in The Game (ie. crime or gangsta rap or both), you show your success by extravagant displays of wealth and the size of your circle of ‘baby mamas’. Want to show you like a bitch? Put a baby up dat ass. How romantic. And what a great father figure he’s going to turn out to be. The inner cities aren’t far off warzones in places and universities of crime in others. The President needs to stand up, point these facts out, expose the race hucksters like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton for the leeches off their communities that they are, and do something about it.

    If the left has decided to Confederate memorials and statues are to be their next rallying cry, Trump needs to show some real leadership. That was a vital part of our history, some people feel strongly about it, whether these statues or memorials could be placed more appropriately is a matter for the relevant municipalities. I can understand perfectly well why plenty of decent Americans feel offended by a statue of Robert. E. Lee. I can also understand perfectly well why plenty of other decent Americans feel that same statue is an important part of American history that should be preserved. We have a First Amendment, and it is the job of the people to civilly resolve this issue in a calm and reasoned process, with each side attributing goodwill to the other. It is not my job to make that decision.

    It is my job, however, to do something about the deplorable, unforgivable state that our once great American inner cities have degenerated into, where (insert horrifying crime/sociological/health/educational stats here). My primary focus as President is to ensure that those living in these underprivileged neighbourhoods have far, far better opportunities in life by the time I leave office.

    Trump’s problem is that he is really an Independent president – the first for a hundred and something years. That makes personnel selection and maintenance extremely difficult. The presidency is too big to staff with friends and personally loyal associates. Nonetheless it’s a rollicking, wonderful presidency – smashing the tired old scripted template to smithereens.

    Of course, it is an enormous lie that Trump ever called white nationalists very fine people. He explicitly condemned them. His comment was obviously referring to the non-racist protesters dismayed by the removal of Lee’s statue. Notice that nobody in the press actually quotes Trump’s statement, since that would expose their “reporting” as despicable propaganda worthy of a Soviet show trial.

    The fake news has never been faker, as puffed-chest “anchors” instruct their audiences to trust their dishonest paraphrase of Trump’s remarks. And of course here too the “conservative” press joined in the journalistic malpractice. The politically correct weenies at the New York Post, for example, ran outrageously dishonest headlines about Trump calling the white supremacists fine people.

    A parade of “conservative” prognosticators and effete Republicans say that this controversy will inflict permanent damage on Trump. Before you take their comments seriously, go back and look at what these cocky jackasses said about Trump’s chances in the Republican primaries. If any of these frauds ever tried to run against Trump, he would crush them. Pundits on stations with anemic ratings, and pols who couldn’t win their own states, claim that they speak for the “country.”

    Brilliant.
    We’ve seen this many times before. The ‘offending’ quote is never published.
    There are indeed many fine people who oppose the Democrat Party’s ISIS wing blowing up statues – like, um, the majority of Americans. The interesting thing about politics in the US now is that the Democrats have lost control of their terrorist wing. The terrorists now lead, the party follows.

    Trump: I think there is blame on both sides. You look at both sides. I think there is blame object both on both sides. I have no doubt about it. You don’t have doubt about it either. If you reported it accurately, you would say that the neo-Nazis started this thing. They showed up in Charlottesville. Excuse me. They didn’t put themselves down as neo-Nazis. You had some very bad people in that group. You also had some very fine people on both sides. You had people in that group — excuse me, excuse me. I saw the same pictures as you did. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down, of to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.

    George Washington was a slave owner. Was George Washington a slave owner? So will George Washington now lose his status? Are we going to take down — excuse me. Are we going to take down statues to George Washington? How about Thomas Jefferson? What do you think of Thomas Jefferson? You like him. Good. Are we going to take down his statue. He was a major slave owner. Are we going to take down his statue? It is fine. You are changing history and culture.

    You had people and i’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists. They should be condemned totally. You had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists. The press has treated them absolutely unfairly. Now, in the other group also, you had some fine people but you also had troublemakers and you see them come with the black outfits and with the helmets and with the baseball bats. You had a lot of bad people in the other group too.

    Q: You were saying the press has treated white nationalists unfairly?

    Trump: No, no. There were people in that rally. I looked the night before. If you look, there were people protesting very quietly the taking down taking down the statue of Robert E. Lee. I am sure there were some bad ones.

    The following day, it looked like they had some rough, bad people, neo-Nazis, white nationalists, whatever you want to call them. You had a lot of people in that group that were there to innocently protest and very legally protest. I don’t know if you know, they had a permit. The other group didn’t have a permit.

    So I only tell you this. There are two sides to a story. I thought what took place was horrible moment for our country, a horrible moment. But there are two sides to the country.

    Let me say at the outset, as though it needs to said again and again. I find neo-nazis and the like to be repulsive. I wouldn’t refer to them as far right because, they aren’t far right at all. Far right really means that you end up at libertarianism at the extreme end of the right’s spectrum. Nazis and fascists are national socialists.

    Having said that and repeating again how reprehensible all forms of socialism are (international or national) they still have a right to free speech under the First Amendment. If all the big sites cut them off, it does, in my mind, rub up against the infringement of their right to free speech.

    Well Albo might not be caught by the Italian thing because since 1948 in Italy it was the blood line of the mother that carried the citizenship entitlement.

    What a bunch of pussies. It should should the father… always.

    By the way.. Do you know if I can I apply for a EU/Italian passport? My folks arrived in the 50s and become citizens after I was born here. Does that entitle me to a passport?

    Yes,

    if they were still Italian Citizens when you were born, and only became naturalised Australians after your birth, you are an Italian by right of birth

    It is B’useful, especially for Heathrow – I believe it is now 5 years after your Italian Citizenship is approved, that your spouse can also apply for Italian Citizenship, you should at the same time as application, register your kids for Italian Citizenship to which they are entitled and in turn they should register their kids with the Italian Consulate when they are born – need Birth Certificates etc, speak to your local Italian Consulate – Sydney Consulate is very helpful

    Winx blunders start before claiming 18th win in a row with remarkable fightback
    The Daily Telegraph
    4 minutes ago
    MARE of the world Winx has pulled off the remarkable after missing the start by four lengths to record her 18th consecutive win at Randwick.

    Winx was in trouble for a long way in the run and didn’t look a winning chance until the final 50m to take out the $250,000 Bob Ingham Warwick Stakes (1400m) in front of a huge crowd.

    The greatest horse on turf left everyone at Randwick gobsmacked after she missed the jump by four lengths before coming from last to grab stablemate Foxplay on the line to keep her amazing winning streak intact.

    Winx claimed back-to-back wins of the Group 2 Warwick Stakes in the process with her winning streak now standing at 18.

    A big crowd turned up to Randwick to see Winx’s return and she remains on track to equal Kingston Town’s record of three Cox Plates this spring.

    Winx, who won the Warwick Stakes by 3½ lengths last August, is $1.50 with TAB to equal Kingston Town’s record of three Cox Plates in October.

    In a surprise in late betting, Winx drifted out to what could have been considered value at $1.10.

    The victory was her 22th career success and continues an unbeaten streak that has remarkably stretched more than two years.

    was it a set up? End part of a longer article

    The Democratic Party is no longer liberal, it is leftist. It is not progressive, it is regressive and repressive. It seeks to overturn the First Amendment. It means to indoctrinate, and has, successive generations via public and private education. It is becoming ever more fascist by the day. Along with groups like Antifa, BLM, and the host of anti-democratic groups George Soros funds to protest all around the nation, the media and the Democrats in Congress seek to overthrow an elected president in order to impose their vision of some sort of socialist utopia which of course will never exist. What will result if they get their way is a Venezuela-style two-tiered class system, the ultra rich and the very poor who are kept in their place by economic and social control. The millions of people who see the left for what it has become see this. It is why they voted for Trump.

    It is disheartening to see so many American elites, privileged in wealth and position within the media and/or government be so completely of one, unthinking mind. They all have braces on their brains (Auntie Mame). So afraid to buck the rigid mindset of their peers, they have become mouthpieces for their own group identity. Do they believe the nonsense they spew? Who knows? Those in Congress, all the Democrats and the anti-Trump Republicans essentially care about one thing and one thing only: getting re-elected. They cannot afford to offend their donors or the lobbyists whose largesse fills their coffers. So they trip over each other getting to the nearest camera to align themselves with whatever opinion they think will put them on the right side of the money people. They are wrong so often.

    Finally, Trump’s press conference on Tuesday made the left’s heads explode. Why? Because everything he said was absolutely true. He does not play by their tyrannical PC rules. He said what was true and that room full of puerile reporters shouting insults at him could not handle the truth. They want what they want to be true but it just is not. This entire episode, the behavior of all those protesters in Charlottesville and the bizarre behavior of the media will likely drive future voters to Trump, not away from him. Millions more than those who voted for him are as likely to be sick to death of the self-righteous preening of the talking heads: Chuck Todd, Jake Tapper, Don Lemon, Shep Smith, etc. There must be a contest to see who can appear to be the most egregiously triggered by what Trump did or did not say.

    So were the events of Saturday the result of a despicable plan to further undermine Trump? There was plenty of time and Charlottesville is the “capital of resistance.” If it was, it was evil and deadly and the people involved need to be prosecuted. Or is this a wild conspiracy theory? Perhaps. But the pieces fit. Will the DOJ and the FBI actually investigate the many mysteries that surround the events of that day? Not likely. The left in this country has long been and seems to remain above the law. But someday, maybe someone will come forward and tell the truth. What is certain is that the violence could easily have been prevented with the common sense strategies civilized cities put in place. America deserves much better from its media and its elected officials. The only person remembering why he is there is Donald Trump.

    Nobel on the way I hope.

    When Ben Franklin proposed in 1749 what eventually became the University of Pennsylvania, he called for an academy to teach “those Things that are likely to be most useful.” Today the university lays claim to having incubated the world’s biggest cancer breakthrough. In 2011, a team of researchers led by immunologist Carl June, a Penn professor, reported stunning results after genetically altering the T-cells of three patients with advanced chronic lymphocytic leukemia, a cancer that affects white blood cells.

    The patients had failed to respond to many different traditional therapies. Yet two of the three patients experienced miraculous recoveries after Dr. June and his team gave them infusions of their own doctored white blood cells. Seven years later they remain cancer-free. The third patient died after showing improvements, though might have been saved had the treatment begun earlier.

    The results, published in the New England Journal of Medicine in August 2011, opened the field of cancer immunotherapy. “It was a tipping point,” recalls the 64-year-old Dr. June. “There was an amazing outpouring because we showed for the first time that it could work.”

    And it worked spectacularly well—more than 90% of pediatric patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in a subsequent clinical trial went into remission after being infused with Dr. June’s CAR T-cells (the acronym stands for “chimeric antigen receptor”). Last month an advisory committee of the Food and Drug Administration unanimously approved the therapy to treat acute lymphoblastic leukemia. The FDA is likely to give final approval within weeks.
    Illustration: Zina Saunders

    Dr. June sat down at his office at Penn Medicine’s Smilow Center for Translational Research—near where then-Vice President Joe Biden launched the U.S. government’s cancer “moon shot” initiative in 2016—to discuss the development of CAR T-cell therapy, its potential to cure other cancers, and the challenges ahead—both scientific and regulatory.

    val thanks for the link to the American Thinker article — this paragraph from that article reminds me of the race riot which I have always maintained was a set up from the moment Abbott spoke to a reporter from the ABC in Sydney who put the question about the tent embassy early on the morning of 26 January, 2013 — from then I believe the whole thing had been set up with talking points, with the Tony Hodges/Sam Casey incitement of the tent embassy crowd:

    Trump spoke out on Saturday and his statement was perfectly fine given the known facts at the time. But the media reacted as though he had defended the supremacist groups. He did not; not even close. It was as though no matter what Trump said, they were going to attack his remarks as being insufficient. When he reiterated his horror of the brawl the next day and named the groups present, they again reacted as if he had defended the supremacist groups because he said there was mayhem committed by both sides. He correctly stated that there was violence perpetrated by members of all the groups present. The media was apoplectic even though they surely knew what he said was true. Reporters on the scene saw the police stand down. Only one of them reported that truth. One has to wonder if talking points were distributed before the event took place and before Trump said a word about it.

    All the changes in the Trump administration remind me of company takeovers I’ve been involved in(from both sides of the fence). Usually there was a flurry of changes and departures at various levels with chaos here and there until the acquired company was brought into line and the acquiring company came to understand the new business better. Based on the need for Trump to effect fundamental change I’d guess this will continue for some time.

    The bay where Dirk came ashore is basically untouched and appears as it would have 401 years ago when he first landed. Various French and Dutch names are used on the maps for the geographical features.

    Atlanta Fed Estimates U.S. Third-Quarter GDP Growing at 4.0 percent…
    Posted on August 19, 2017 by sundance

    “It can’t be done”, they said. “There’s no way Trump can achieve 4.0% economic growth” they said. The Congressional Budget Office said economic projections were “improbable”, they said…. “Impossible”, they said.

    Yeah, well, Donald Trump said: “Impossible is just the starting point“. And now:

    NEW YORK (Reuters) – The U.S. economy is on track to expand at a 4.0 percent annualized pace in the third quarter with inventory investment contributing 1.12 percentage points to growth, the Atlanta Federal Reserve’s GDP Now forecast model showed on Thursday. (read more)

    How is this possible? Well, if you’ve never had to wash your hands with Lava – it might seem impossible. For those who have washed with Lava, it’s simple common sense.

    The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth, is the growth in value of all goods and services produced within the economy over a specified period of time. A key part of that equation is the sum total of exported goods minus imported goods is part of the measure. Only the stuff created in the U.S. increases the growth dynamic. If you import more, the GDP shrinks. It’s simple arithmetic.

    If you grow exports, and maintain a constant on imported products, the net lowering of the trade deficit adds to GDP growth. It’s not a hard equation. If our economy is making more stuff, our economy is growing.

    Well, Well, Well – President Trump Flips Bannon The Zippo?…
    Posted on August 18, 2017 by sundance

    President Donald J Trump has done a remarkable job creating a seismic political shift that has gone far beyond drawing a line in the republican sand. Heck, Donald Trump openly dug a trench on his pre-selected battle space within all political encampments.

    https://theconservativetreehouse.files.wordpress.com/2015/09/trump-crosses.jpg

    Without any apology or hidden motive, President Trump filled the trench with a highly explosive electorate fuel (the result from years of Republican lies and deceit), and boldly stood behind his formation twirling a Zippo while looking toward the deceivers.

    Today, it sounds like President Trump hands off the Zippo to Steve Bannon:

    “If there’s any confusion out there, let me clear it up: I’m leaving the White House and going to war for Trump against his opponents — on Capitol Hill, in the media, and in corporate America.” ~ Stephen K Bannon

    (Via Bloomberg) […] According to a person close to Bannon, he met Wednesday with conservative billionaire Robert Mercer, co-chief executive of Renaissance Technologies and a major financial supporter of both Trump and Bannon’s efforts. The two mapped out a path ahead for Bannon’s post-White House career and discussed how Trump could get his agenda back on track.

    The following evening, Mercer and several other major Republican donors had dinner with Trump to share their thinking, and Mercer also had a private meeting with Trump to pledge to redouble his efforts to support Bannon and advance Trump’s agenda. (read more)

    1. Read about Cook’s achievements.
    2. Look in the mirror, and admit to yourself that your achievements amount to nothing in comparison.
    3. Commit to doing something useful* with the influential position you have created for yourself.
    4. Go do it.

    From memory, Australia is a signatory to some United Nations convention or other that says you can’t strip someone of their citizenship, if it would render them stateless. You’d have to ditch that, first.

    There would have to be some third world tinpot nation willing to take a $500 admin fee per person, we send them an email with all the relevant government records, they send back an acknowledgment of fully approved citizenship in Whoopdedoistan. When the foreign fighters get back to Australia we say, “Congratulations! Here’s your new passport and citizenship papers (look after those, you will be needing them), one way airfare paid by the Australian taxpayer, please come with us.”

    I mean, we can’t even find a handful of people to fill both houses of government who aren’t also citizens of multiple countries (even the people born here like Barnaby) and you are telling me that people who have been in Australia all of a few years are suddenly left with NOWHERE AT ALL to claim them?!? I don’t believe it. This is a lack of effort on the part of public servants… tell them to go back and try harder.

    If that doesn’t work, I hear that Médecins Sans Frontières operate some sort of delivery service in operation, no questions asked apparently. Must be some options there.

    ‘also by Mundle was the circumnavigation and mapping of our coastline by Bass and Flinders,’

    Ian.

    Mundle also penned a book about the Tea Clippers ‘Under Full Sail.’

    One of the fastest was the ‘Lahloo,’ parts of which I found and salvaged during a previous career. There wasn’t much left, locals having used the timbers for firewood, and perhaps construction. The Lahloo was wrecked on Sumba. I won’t mention the exact place. Between 1838 – 1872 at least 11 ships were wrecked on Sumba, ten Brit and one Yankee whaler. The Dutch had been reluctant to administer Sumba because of reports of a secret Portuguese fort there [and there had been] but the British trade between Mauritius, the new colony of WA, Sumba and India resulted in so many wrecks, theft and in at least one case the enslavement of Brit sailors, that the Brits forced the NEI to send a Controlleur there to protect Brit interests.

    In 1838 a Brit ship was wrecked at Lamboya and the crew sold as slaves. They escaped to Makassar in Sulawesi; 1863 a US whaler and seven Brit ships purchasing horses for the Army in India and Africa were wrecked at Mangili beach, Taimanu, Mamboru, Wainde and Kadumbulu. The Rajas were forced to give horses to the Dutch to pay back the Brit shipowners. The ‘Lahloo’ was wrecked in 1872.

    In Sumba the Brits are called ‘Marisu’ or ‘Marihu’ depending on dialect, meaning the Mauritians.

    On why he doesn’t invest in gold:“You could take all the gold that’s ever been mined, and it would fill a cube 68 feet in each direction. For what that’s worth at current gold prices, you could buy all—not some—of the farmland in the U.S. Plus, you could buy 16 Exxon Mobils, plus have $1 trillion of walking-around money.

Turns out, most Republicans have his back…Far more blame “the far right groups” for Charlottesville (46%) than “the counter-protesters” (9%), but a remarkable 40% concur with Trump’s assertion that both were equally responsible.

    The numbers of first generation imports that desire the overthrow of racist colonial Australia and a caliphate in its place are not the real concern.

    The generational radicalisation of the highest fertility offspring, as radical fundamentalists breed faster and younger than the assimilated is the worry.

    Australia’s left urge their imports to act as cannon fodder in the revolutionary struggle against the imperialist running dogs.

    The halal funded, Saudi agents of influence controlled madrasses that the Australian left have accredited as schools are fully intended to do their bit to overthrow obsolete Australia as it clings like desperate racists to a place in the Anglosphere.
