    Once that starts to happen you run into the same problems that the Soviet Union had.

    The energy Co’s are looking past the jelly backed Libs and see a leftist renewball taxpayer subsidised bonanza with Labor in power. Unless the Libs throw out the RET, aggressively embrace coal and deliver lower energy prices to the electorate, Labor are in the box seat. Higher energy prices will ensure the Libs become toast.

    Millionaire gay fathers to sue the Church of England for not allowing them to get married in the church#AusPol

    Barrie Drewitt-Barlow said that he wants to marry partner Tony in a church

    Said that the only way forward is to challenge the church in court

    It is a test for Cameron’s promise to the CofE and Roman Catholic bishops

    Said that no church would be forced to conduct same-sex weddings

    Barrie and Tony now have five children through surrogate mothers

    Mr Drewitt-Barlow and his civil partner Tony have been a celebrated couple since 1999, when they became the first gay couple to be named on the birth certificate of a child. They now have five children through surrogate mothers.
    He said : ‘We need to convince the church that it is the right thing for our community for them to recognise us as practising Christians.

    ‘I am a Christian – a practising Christian. My children have all been brought up as Christians and are part of the local parish church.’ Mr Drewitt-Barlow, 42, who owns a surrogacy company based near the family home in Essex and is opening another in Los Angeles, added: ‘If I was a Sikh I could get married at the Gurdwara. Liberal Jews can marry in the Synagogue – just not the Christians.

    ‘It upsets me because I want it so much – a big lavish ceremony, the whole works.

    He said it was a shame that he and his partner were being forced to take Christians to court to get them to recognise them, but he said the new law did not give them what they have been campaigning for.

    Colin Hart, of the Coalition for Marriage said: ‘The ink’s not even dry on the Bill and churches are already facing litigation. We warned Mr Cameron this would happen, we told him he was making promises that he couldn’t possibly keep.

    ‘He didn’t listen. He didn’t care. He’s the one who has created this mess. Mr Cameron’s chickens are coming home to roost and it will be ordinary people with a religious belief who yet again fall victim to the totalitarian forces of political correctness.’

    Mr Hart added: ‘We now face the real prospect of churches having to choose between stopping conducting weddings, or vicars, and priests defying the law and finding themselves languishing in the dock.’

    JC the Liars won the WA election because of the “it’s their turn” factor. It’s a consequence of allowing women the right to vote. The Libs in WA knew without a shadow of a doubt that they would lose. They specifically overloaded the budget and put us into debt to crimp the options of the incoming liar govt. It has forced the liars to fall back onto their default position – tax everything that moves and give the money to themselves. More specifically it has meant that the liars are not in a position to sabotage our electricity industry – much as they would like to. They need the taxes to maintain their gifts.

    Concerns soaring power prices and shortages could disrupt economy and essential services
    Des Houghton, ASSISTANT EDITOR, The Courier-Mail
    September 10, 2017 12:00am
    Subscriber only

    QUEENSLAND faces a chaotic summer with sky-high power prices and the threat of brownouts as southern states drain our electricity supplies.

    Disruptions could hit aged care and retirement homes, electric trains and other essential services while soaring prices send Queensland businesses to the wall with thousands of jobs at risk.

    Energy chiefs blamed the irrational anti-coal and gas policies in southern states and the unreliability of renewables to fill the gap.

    “Queenslanders will feel the effects of shortages of power this summer either in price, or brownouts or both,” warned Ian Macfarlane, chief of the Queensland Resources Council.

    “Australia simply cannot cope with renewable energy alone.

    “We support renewable energy as part of the mix, but it has to be affordable and reliable — and right now it is it is neither.”

    Mr Macfarlane, a former federal resources minister said the risk of power failures was greatest in South Australia and Victoria where the government had turned its back on coal and gas.

    Those states were seeking to scrap fossil-based fuel or exploration as a pander to the Greens, he said.

    And while they were closing coal-fired power stations they were happy to take Queensland power made with coal.

    pposition energy spokesman Michael Hart said the threat of power failures was worse in north Queensland where old people may be at risk in heatwaves without airconditioning.

    The wholesale price of electricity had increased 70 per cent under the Palaszczuk Government that was ideologically opposed to coal.

    Mr Hart added: “If Bill Shorten is elected prime minister and instigates his 50 per cent Renewable Energy Target we will be in real strife.”

    He blamed the Greens and left-wing advocacy groups like GetUp!!!!! for spreading falsehoods about renewable energy.

    Opposition leader Tim Nicholls accused Labor of using power as a secret tax.

    He said: “To plug its budget black hole, Labor has loaded government-owned energy businesses with $5 billion in debt and is raiding 100 per cent dividends from them — costs that are passed on to consumers.’’

    “Labor also turned a blind eye to price gouging by Stanwell Corporation that has sent wholesale electricity prices through the roof — behaviour now the subject of investigation by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.

    “All of Labor’s energy policies are driving prices up.”

    I just went to the local caf to get a cig. On the way home I see a dude with a cage and there’s a brown rat… a brown rat near the cage casually eating grass off the nature strip without a care in the world. The rat doesn’t give a shit about the cat in the cage, nor the people milling around watching the spectacle. He let the cat out of the cage, which went sniffing around the rat but didn’t even try to attack. Meanwhile the rat couldn’t car less.

    I dunno what the old dude was doing with cat in the cage and it’s not the sort of question to ask. That’s just what it’s like around here.

  59. A Trump adviser says that after a tumultuous seven months in office, it had finally dawned on the president: “People really [email protected]&@ing hate me.” For someone who has spent his life lapping up adulation, however fake, it was a harsh realization. This is a man with an especially acute need for affirmation.

    This week’s bear hug of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer opened Trump’s eyes to one solution: Stop doing things that people hate, and start striking deals.

    Who knows if this will stick.

    I am skeptical. He was forced into this particular deal because he had no other option, due to the complete incompetence of the GOP. I don’t think it heralds a new era of bipartisanship.

    If the Democrats come to him with a real infrastructure bill – not a bulldust one based on built-to-fail public-private partnerships that he had been proposing – the test will come as to whether he will commit serious public funding.

    I expect he will sour on the Democrats later this month when he can’t get big tax cuts passed.

  60. Just Interested

    For those who thought that an (advisory) policy motion from the Nats national conference was worth a hill of beans:

    Environment and Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg has slapped down a criticism of renewables by Coalition colleague and former resources minister Matt Canavan, who described them as a “short term sugar hit”.

    Mr Frydenberg has also hit out at Labor for being “in a bind” over whether to support keeping coal-fired power stations after their planned closure to meet a shortfall in power generation.

    “(Opposition Leader Bill Shorten’s) energy spokesman (Mark Butler) has been in a series of excruciating interviews, at each time not being able to answer the question do they support the continuation of existing coal fired power stations,” Mr Frydenberg told Sky News.

    At a Nationals conference in Canberra this weekend, attendees voted up a motion to eliminate subsidies for renewable energy.

    Under the motion, subsidies to renewables would be frozen for a year, then would be phased out completely over five years.

    Mr Canavan told the conference that when it came to jobs, renewables were “just a short term sugar hit”.

    “We’ve taken all the subsidies away from our farming sector and now the biggest protection racket going around is in our renewable energy sector,” Mr Canavan said.

    Mr Frydenberg said this was not correct.

    “Renewables are coming down significantly in price and their storage technologies are coming down year by year so renewables play an important part of the energy mix.

    “They’re not just a short term sugar hit — they are an important part of the energy mix.”

    Polyamory, defined in a recent, wide-ranging survey as “consensually non-monogamous relationships [where] there is an open agreement that one, both, or all individuals involved in a romantic relationship may also have other sexual and/or romantic partners,” has been on the rise in global culture at large—and even within the church. In the interest of transparency, I should also disclose the fact that my wife and I are polyamorous ourselves and recently decided to open our marriage as such.

    Everyone’s a “polyamorous sapiosexual in an open relationship” (oh, and they also “hate labels”).

    I asked one girl what “polyamorous” meant, just to hear what she’d say.

    “It means I have sex with whoever I want, and I don’t have to stick to just one person.”

    In other words – “polyamorous” is just the polite way to say “I’m a slut, and I’ve convinced myself not to feel guilty about it.”

    For every one who is furious at the CFMEU Party for destroying electricity with expensive and unstable Unreliables, there is exactly 1 who has been brainwashed into believing the exact opposite:

    Wind / sun power is free, reduces grid cost bigly (indeed sometimes brings -ve cost) and only A666 abolishing the WBCT prevented massive investment in free power that would now be free.

    The two votes cancel for no swing.

    Yep but their supporters say it is due to electricity privatisation. Nothing to do with renewables. The ALP is good at shifting their stuffups onto the Coalition. Take the car industry. In 2006 we made 25% of cars locally. Not great but not bad. By 2013 that had fallen to only 10% and Ford had announced they were leaving under Gillard.

    Death Toll Rises to 64 in Mexican Earthquake

    The death toll in the Mexican earthquake rose to 64 as authorities continued their rescue effort in parts of central Mexico. The search to locate survivors or recover bodies continued two days after a massive 8.2 Richter scale earthquake shook multiple states including Mexico City.

    The epicenter of the quake hit on Thursday night in the southern state of Chiapas, one of Mexico’s poorest regions. The tremors were felt in at least a dozen central states, Breitbart Texas reported. Initially, more than 1.5 million homes lost power. Schools in 11 states did not hold classes on Friday while officials assessed structural damages.

    By Friday, authorities reported more than 30 victims. Recovery efforts led to a new death toll of 64 victims. Many others suffered various degrees of injuries.

    In the state of Oaxaca, the earthquake claimed 45 victims, the earthquake claimed 12 victims in Chiapas, and four others were reported in the state of Tabasco, Infobae reported.

    Since the initial earthquake, more than 266 follow-up tremors have been reported nationwide. This earthquake has been labeled as the strongest earthquake to hit Mexico in more than 100 years, rivaling the September 19, 1985, earthquake that spread devastation through Mexico City and killed thousands.

You could read in the faces of the legitimate recruits that had the camera not been there, Sampson could easily have ‘accidentally’ drowned in the mud without anyone noticing his absence. To be so unprepared was reckless, and could have endangered the lives of others. I didn’t watch another episode.

    Machinetool manufacturer of the day? Today we go to Japan!

    Okuma!

    http://www.lathes.co.uk/okuma/

    Also famous for making fishing reels, the Okuma LS is a machine of great beauty, with a unique Japanese design flair, note the swarf guard over the apron hand wheel, in the flesh this looks like a piece of samurai armour.

    Controls are very well arranged, there’s feed doubler controls on the apron so for regular turning about the only time you need to go back to the headstock is to change speeds. The tail stock also has little wheels on plungers so when it is not locked down you can almost move it with one finger.

    The other good thing about the Okuma LS is that it’s a reasonably high machine, so not to much stooping when you’re operating. Only drawbacks are a relatively rare spindle nose type A-0 system from memory and the spindle bore is only 52mm. American and U.K. Machines of equivalent size would typically have a 75mm spindle bore and a D1-8 spindle nose which these days is pretty much the industry standard.

    Whilst I haven’t read anything about this, I would suggest that the Japanese Machinetool Association may have done some parts standardisation or if not intentionally organised, it did happen. The handwheels, control levers and graduated dials can be seen on other Japanese lathes, Hamatu machines in particular.

    If you want to get a feel for the state of Australian manufacturing then machinery prices are a good indicator. Quality Japanese lathes of this size used to be $10k machines all day long, in the add linked below, the seller will be very lucky to get his starting price of $3.5k.

    Arisaka

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ifarJGOyJEM

    For all those of you thinking of buying a rifle, Arisaka is known today as Howa. Quality stuff.

    Quality of these rifles was excellent (except for the late war emergency rifles that had cast iron receivers!). The heat treatment in particular was excellent, the Japanese had taken their knowledge of heat treatment for swords and had applied it to rifles. The Japanese were also pioneers of the idea that smaller calibres might be of merit, possibly the Italians were the only power to explore and implement this idea. Japan was of criticised for having “pissy rifles” when in fact what they had done was re-evaluate calibre requirements post the advent of smokeless powder, which pretty much no one else had done.

    The USA conducted extensive post war weapon evaluations. The only scenario they could concoct to get an Ariska to fail was to fire it with a cleaning rod in the barrel. Even then the barrel simply sheared off in front of the receiver and did so in a way that wouldn’t have injured the shooter.

    What Capt Cook could have done with a ‘traditional two-stroke tinnie’ runabout.

    Or a machine gun. Contrary to popular conception, the first race-inspired attack in Australia was launched by Aborigines, who set a bushfire with a view to burning the Endeavour when it was undergoing repairs after coming to grief while striking the very first white man’s blow against the Great Barrier Reef.

    Cook lost the ship’s goat and a lot of supplies to the flames, if memory serves.

    The catalyst for this unpleasantness was the Original Custodians’ presumed right to eat one or several of Cook’s just-captured turtles. It seems the handout mentallity has been a fixture of Indigenous relations for quite some time.

    It’s also called adultery. But that’s old-fashioned concept in these amoral times.

    Except of course at the AFL where it’s illegal. Well for white men anyway.

    I have just been reading an article in Pink News about UK Speaker John Bercow and his insistence that gay couples won’t have real equality until they can marry in churches.

    The comments section is interesting. Apparently adultery is grounds for divorce in the UK, but only in opposite sex marriages. Same sex marriages must use other grounds. For adultery to happen, you need a penis and a vagina. But not for marriage to happen.

Not willing to risk further loss of life and leave his vessel undermanned, Jansz sailed the Duyfken only a further 40 kilometres south before tuning back.

    I know you’re just being provocative like any troll but carbon farming or any hybrid like aboriginal fire-stick carbon farming is particularly insidious. It just shows how aboriginal culture has been perverted by left-wing bullshit, in this case alarmism. What could be more pathetic than some aboriginal rangers setting fire to the scrub, not to catch tucker, but to produce carbon credits, a notion original aboriginals would have scoffed at. But since there are no original aboriginals left only pets and lackeys of the left no scoffing occurs.

    20 STATES ASK SUPREME COURT TO RELEASE VIDEOS EXPOSING PLANNED PARENTHOOD

    The attorneys general of 20 states have filed a brief that urges the U.S. Supreme Court to lift an injunction that has barred the release of the undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s alleged practice of profiteering from the sale of aborted baby body parts.

    The states’ top law enforcement officials – led by Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich – filed an amicus or “friend of the court” brief. The attorneys general argue U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick’s ban – which was upheld by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals – “hampers law enforcement’s ability to effectively receive information and investigate possible civil or criminal wrongdoing.”

    “The decision empowers would-be wrongdoers, especially those engaged in collusion, conspiracy, or other multi-party enterprises, to shroud their actions and hamper investigations,” the attorneys general added.

    “By imposing a host of contract-based prior restraints on communications with investigators, the Ninth Circuit’s decision sets a precedent that will harm law enforcement’s ability to gather information that can be crucial to protecting the public,” a press release from Brnovich’s office stated.

    Last week, Orrick fined David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress and his attorneys $200,000 for contempt of his order when they published online video footage of abortionists at National Abortion Federation (NAF) trade shows.

    The footage showed abortionists joking about their work, discussing “the head that gets stuck that we can’t get out,” and “an eyeball just fell down into my lap, and that is gross!”

    Dr. Lisa Harris, medical director of Planned Parenthood Michigan, is also heard saying in the video, “Let’s just give them all the violence, it’s a person, it’s killing, let’s just give them all that.”

    Daleiden and Merritt have also been charged with 15 felony counts under California’s law protecting “confidential” conversations.

    In September 2016, emails obtained by the Washington Times showed that then-California AG and U.S. Senate candidate Kamala Harris’s office collaborated with Planned Parenthood to produce legislation that specifically targeted Daleiden.

    The emails, according to the Times, were accessed through a public records request and revealed conversations between officials of Harris’s office and Planned Parenthood regarding legislation that criminalizes undercover journalists for publishing and distributing recordings of private communications with abortion providers.

    In March 2017, the new California attorney general, Xavier Becerra, announced the criminal complaint charging Daleiden and Merritt with 15 felony counts against the state’s “confidentiality” legislation.

    Previously, Becerra was a longstanding Democratic congressman who received $5,535 from Planned Parenthood during his congressional election bids between 1998 and 2014, according to OpenSecrets.org.

    Harris is on record as having received $2,600 in 2016 from Planned Parenthood for her Senate race campaign. Additionally, Harris was the recipient of $39,855 from the Abortion Policy/Pro-Abortion Rights lobby group, according to OpenSecrets.org. ElectionTrack.com reported Harris received $15,000 from Planned Parenthood for her attorney general campaign bids.

    In the amicus brief, Brnovich asserted that criminal activity is not protected by confidentiality agreements and that law enforcement officials often rely upon information provided by whistleblowers.

    Attorneys for the undercover journalist, who created a firestorm with his video exposé of the fetal tissue trafficking industry, claim Orrick’s order is unconstitutional and against Daleiden’s First Amendment rights. The injunction prohibited publication of the video footage of Planned Parenthood officials during the NAF trade shows on the basis that it could endanger the abortionists.

    Daleiden and CMP have a pending motion that requests the disqualification of Orrick “on the grounds that there is evidence of bias in favor of the plaintiff and prejudice against the defendants.”

    Evidence uncovered by Daleiden and his attorneys includes that the Good Samaritan Family Resource Center – an entity that is in partnership with a Planned Parenthood affiliate, a member of NAF – has named Orrick as an emeritus member of its board.

    In addition, Orrick’s wife’s Facebook account was found to have included posted public comments – along with a photo of her and her husband – that indicate support for Planned Parenthood and criticism of Daleiden and CMP.

    The video journalist achieved a victory recently when a federal court sided with him in a lawsuit against him by the taxpayer-funded University of Washington’s lab workers and abortion facility staff attempting to hide their identifying information from the public. The court decided that taxpayers have a right to see how their tax dollars are used.

    Charges brought against Daleiden and his colleague Sandra Merritt in Harris County, Texas, were also ultimately dropped in May of 2016 when an attorney representing Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast admitted that he pressured the Harris County District Attorney’s office to drop an indictment against the abortion business and instead indict Daleiden and Merritt.

    Two pro-choice law professors wrote that the indictment of Daleiden and Merrit amounted to “a stunning act of legal jujitsu” and was a “deeply disturbing” outcome, both for the First Amendment and undercover citizen journalists attempting to expose corruption.

    Though Planned Parenthood continues to deny any wrongdoing in the alleged sale of aborted baby body parts, the organization also released a statement in October of 2015 announcing it would no longer accept payments for aborted fetal tissue. The abortion provider and its left-wing media supporters continue to insist the videos produced by CMP were “deceptively edited.”

    However, a Democrat opposition research firm named Fusion GPS – hired by Planned Parenthood itself to review the videos – said while their analysts observed the videos had been edited, “the analysis did not reveal widespread evidence of substantive video manipulation.”

    Additionally, Fusion noted, “[A]nalysts found no evidence that CMP inserted dialogue not spoken by Planned Parenthood staff.”

    An analysis by Coalfire, a third-party forensics company hired by Alliance Defending Freedom, found that the videos were “not manipulated” and that they are “authentic.”

    Fusion GPS is the same firm that commissioned a dossier on President Donald Trump.

    The CMP undercover investigation led to congressional probes into allegations that Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of babies aborted in its clinics for a profit and to vehement cries for the elimination of Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer funding. Planned Parenthood affiliates and their partners in the biomedical procurement industry have been referred for possible criminal prosecution by congressional committees.

    In addition to Arizona, the other states joining in the amicus brief are Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

    cohenite, you have to be in deep doo-doo to get disconnected these days. Both the suppliers and the politicians know how sensitive that issue is, especially nowadays.

    When I bought my joint last year, I never got the first gas bill from ACTEW/AGL. Went astray. After six months, (and no reminders) I got the second, cumulative bill, which I paid.

    You really have to work at it to get cut off.

    A while back, I told of the Aboriginal settlement in Wellington, NSW, where no electricity bills were paid for over a year, despite numerous warnings. When the juice was finally cut off, Cats will be shocked and surprised that it was accompanied by shrieks of “racsism.”

    People in town (mostly white) who didn’t pay their bills were lucky to get six months.

    Anyway, billing practices differ. But rest assured, the last thing that these companies want is ugly publicity. So, it will be debt instead of cutoffs, and people skipping and the rest of us picking up the tab.

    ‘No-Cost’ Abortions for Harvey Victims?
    Fmr. Planned Parenthood Director Calls Out Women’s Clinic

    A Texas-based feminist organization that provides comprehensive gynecology services is offering no-cost abortions for people affected by Hurricane Harvey.

    Whole Woman’s Health wrote in a post on their website, “Unfortunately, we know all too well that abortion can be difficult to access in some parts of the country, especially in Texas. There are already so many barriers to access this necessary procedure, and natural disasters stand in the way of women getting to their appointment and/or being able to afford care.”

    They went on to state, “To ensure our patients get the compassionate, quality abortion care they deserve, we’re providing no-cost abortions for those affected by Hurricane Harvey.”

    The move was praised in pro-choice circles, but former Planned Parenthood Director Abby Johnson told Townhall the offer may not be about “compassion” but about what’s lucrative.

    “I hardly believe they are doing this out of charity and for no money at all because remember, the abortion industry does nothing for free. Most likely, they are billing these ‘free abortions’ to their anonymous donor who gives all National Abortion Federation-affiliated faculties up to $23 million per year for low income women to have abortions,” said Johnson, author of Unplanned: The Dramatic True Story of a Former Planned Parenthood Leader’s Eye-Opening Journey across the Life Line.
    http://www.abbyjohnson.org/
    http://www.unplannedthebook.com/

    Johnson called it a ploy out of Planned Parenthood’s playbook, noting that the abortion provider offered the same free services in 2005 during Hurricane Katrina.

    “Did we collect non-perishable food items for those who had been displaced? Nope. We decided that we would offer victims of Katrina free abortions. That’s right. Free abortions. Except they were not totally free. We never did anything for free and were paid one way or another,” wrote Johnson.

    “In this case, the bulk of the money for these ‘free abortions’ came from the Lilith Fund, a nonprofit based in Texas that raises money for abortions, and private donors,” she added.

    Whole Woman’s Health made a name for itself in both pro-life and pro-choice circles during the 2016 Supreme Court case Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt.

    In that case, Texas state law required facilities performing abortions to have admitting rights to a nearby hospital and have a facility comparable to a surgery center. Clinics claimed that requirement put an unconstitutional burden on those seeking abortions.

    The court ruled on the side of Whole Woman’s Health.

    CBN News reached out to Whole Woman’s Heath for comment on this story and had not heard back as of the time of publication.

    Support for same-sex marriage falling and ‘no’ vote rising, advocate polling shows

    Sep 9, 2017

    Support for same-sex marriage has crashed ahead of the Turnbull government’s postal survey, and only two-thirds of voters are inclined to take part, according to the latest polling from same-sex marriage advocates.
    At the start of a two-month campaign, the confidential research provided to Fairfax Media shows support for a “no” vote has risen, as has the number of people who say they don’t know how they will vote.

    And alarmingly for “yes” campaigners, turnout could be very low, with just 65 per cent of voters rating themselves as very likely to participate – falling to 58 per cent among those aged 18 to 34. 
    It prompted a concerned campaign veteran to declare: “There is every chance we can slip behind and lose this.”

    The research was conducted for the Equality Campaign by Newgate Research pollster Jim Reed between August 28 and September 6, with a sample size of 800 and a 3.5 per cent margin of error.
    It showed that 58.4 per cent of those surveyed said they would back a “yes” vote, down six percentage points from two weeks earlier, while support for a “no” vote rose two percentage points to 31.4 per cent. The “unsure” vote rose three percentage points to 10.2 per cent.
    The tracking polling, which was conducted before the High Court case verdict was handed down, was released to serve as a wake up call to “yes” campaigners who believe victory is assured. Senior figures from the campaign would not speak on the record about the results.

    Campaigners point to the 1999 republic campaign, the Brexit vote and the election of US president Donald Trump as evidence “nothing can be taken for granted”.
    The “no” campaign has successfully portrayed itself as the underdog in the postal survey, based on years of research showing a majority of Australians support same-sex marriage.
    Opponents of change will be buoyed by the significant uptick in voters declaring themselves undecided, a sign that attempts to broaden the debate into areas such as the Safe Schools program may be working.
    The intensity of the debate has already forced LGBTI organisations to dig deeper. Switchboard Victoria manager Jo Ball said her support service had taken 30 per cent more calls since the survey was first announced, and recruited 16 additional volunteer counsellors, with more coming.
    An angry clash between “yes” and “no” supporters outside a Brisbane church on Thursday night, which saw one arrest and one minor injury, prompted government leaders to again call for respectful debate.
    Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said there would always be “isolated cases” of unpleasantness and warned: “You cannot expect your side of the argument to be respected unless you respect the other side of the argument and the people who put it.”
    Finance Minister Mathias Cormann, who is responsible for the postal survey, said it was disappointing that people “take things to extremes” in any political debate.
    The major parties will work over the weekend on a bill to ensure normal election safeguards apply to the marriage campaign, including the requirement for material to bear an authorisation.
    Labor has pitched for the rules to go further and ban “vile” content, but Senator Cormann appeared to rule that out on Friday, saying: “You don’t want to put inappropriate limits on the freedom of political expression.”
    He was largely backed by the Australian Human Rights Commission, whose representative Ed Santow said people had to take personal responsibility for their conduct in the campaign.
    “The law has an important role to play here, but it can only go so far,” he told the ABC. He said the government should consider rules limiting speech with “very serious harmful effects”, such as incitements to violence.

    IIRC, she was the swampette who ridiculed Ben Roberts – Smith and his wife for needing IVF to conceive a child? In a just world, she would have been used for bayonet practice..

    According to Wiki she was a crappy and racist musician.
    And has been making lots of babies. Maybe not much time for TV.

    Music career[edit]
    Stynes is also the bassist and vocalist for Sydney band The Punisherz. In her own words “To be in The Punisherz you have to be Asian and unable to play an instrument. I play bass. We’re terrible.”[20]
    Personal life[edit]

    Stynes was the partner of musician Ben Ely from the band Regurgitator; they separated after eight years, in 2008. They have two daughters, Anouk and Dee Dee.[21] In October 2012, she married Martin Bendeler.[22] Stynes is an ambassador of Priceline’s “Beauty of You” program. In November 2013, Stynes announced that she was pregnant. In May 2014 she gave birth to her third child, a daughter named Mercy.[23] In April 2015, Stynes announced that she was pregnant with her fourth child.[24]

    Just watched one of my fave reality shows, where a needy cow in Toledo, Ohio, wanted everything for $100,000!

    Toledo, as watchers of MASH will know, was the home of Klinger, who for some reason was desperate to get back there.

    Anyway, the take-home message was that you can get a very good place to live in Toldedo for $100k, aand it ain’t Hicksville.

    Great interior pix of a U-boat.

    The most amazing U Boat was U-21 was on Nazi megastructures yesterday and was supposed to be Hitler’s Killer Subs

    How Nazi Germany planned a submarine capable of unprecedented underwater speeds and phenomenal firepower, outperforming anything that had gone before: the streamlined, silent and deadly Type 21 U-Boat – but it never went on active duty

    The Americans and the Russians stole all the ideas and incorporated them in their Nuclear Subs

    You can see the U21 at the U-boat ‘Wilhelm Bauer’ Type XXI, U-2540 Museum in Bremerhaven

    Renewables are no ‘short term sugar hit’, Josh Frydenberg says

    Environment and Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg has slapped down a criticism of renewables by Coalition colleague and former resources minister Matt Canavan, who described them as a “short term sugar hit”.

    Mr Frydenberg has also hit out at Labor for being “in a bind” over whether to support keeping coal-fired power stations after their planned closure to meet a shortfall in power generation.

    “(Opposition Leader Bill Shorten’s) energy spokesman (Mark Butler) has been in a series of excruciating interviews, at each time not being able to answer the question do they support the continuation of existing coal fired power stations,” Mr Frydenberg told Sky News.

    At a Nationals conference in Canberra this weekend, attendees voted up a motion to eliminate subsidies for renewable energy.

    Under the motion, subsidies to renewables would be frozen for a year, then would be phased out completely over five years.

    Mr Canavan told the conference that when it came to jobs, renewables were “just a short term sugar hit”.

    “We’ve taken all the subsidies away from our farming sector and now the biggest protection racket going around is in our renewable energy sector,” Mr Canavan said.

    Mr Frydenberg said this was not correct.

    “Renewables are coming down significantly in price and their storage technologies are coming down year by year so renewables play an important part of the energy mix.

    “They’re not just a short term sugar hit — they are an important part of the energy mix.”

    In a new report, the Australian Energy Market Operator estimated there will be as much as a 1000 megawatt gap baseload dispatchable generation and warned of possible blackouts in South Australia and Victoria this summer.

    The government is attempting to convince Liddell power station owner AGL to sell the plant in order to keep it open beyond 2022.

    Mr Shorten has labelled the debate over the station “a distraction”, when asked about whether Labor would support keeping the station open.

    The Coalition hit back at scepticism over the sale of Liddell power station and speculation it would not be commercially viable for another operator to buy it post 2022.

    Treasurer Scott Morrison said AGL was talking about the Liddell power station as if it was “worthless”.

    “I have great confidence we’ll be able to ensure a new owner would be able to make it work properly,” he told the ABC.

    “Now, who that new owner might be, it could be any number of sources and I’m sure they’ll take (prices) into account. The way AGL has been talking it sounds like it’s worthless and maybe they’ll set it for nothing.”

    I think JC said upthread Malcolm Turnbull is doing very well now? and TA deserved to be taken down and the carcass eaten?

    I would agree that M. Turnbull is doing very well the last few days. He is supporting the SSM with kind and loving words that appeal to people. And the pic with his little grandchild was sweet.
    Now, I would say that pic was very carefully posed. But it’s very clever and the beautiful words about love and marriage for all are lovely.
    The strong talk about Bill Shorten and his backside, – the tough rugged PM, telling it like it is.

    I wonder if M. Turnbull has a new advisor? Because it’s clever and effective. Full marks to the PMO.

    Me! I have been out most of the day, Stimps. And I’m back from Tahiti too.

    And we have Cats in plain sight in harm’s way: Calli’s heading for China and there is RickW, actually sitting it out calmly in Guam. Which apparently is a bit like Tahiti, so it’s not too bad until the rocket hits. Stay safe, you good guys.

    I hope you didn’t miss Outsiders today, Stimpy and others. We’ve caught up with it now, and it was a beauty. Giles Auty on modern art (good value; world class art critic and, comme moi, he has apparently also written a favorable review of Perpetua Durack’s book editing the work of her artist mother, Elizabeth. So I’m told, anyway). Rowan Dean was full-on fantastic about what we can expect from SSM (see Spectator article on that), and Ross Cameron did the Hot Chix Ross Cameron Appreciation Society proud. I would miss that show if they pulled it.

    Coming back to Oz on the plane I watched ‘Viceroy’, about the partition of India and Pakistan at the time of independence. It was OK. the partition was represented by a love story between a Hindu man and Muslim girl. I knew such ‘mixed’ marriages in Sri Lanka, and they had to be between Christians to work well. Mountbatten was played by Hugh Bonham Carter, who will always be Lord Grantham from Downton to me, but he made a fair fist of the job of being a fall guy for Churchill and Jinnah’s plans.

    Coalition takes control as ‘Blackout Bill’ flounders on power – GRAHAM RICHARDSON

    In Friday’s column I congratulated our Prime Minister for finally working out how to attack Bill Shorten. Over the previous couple of weeks attacks by Malcolm Turnbull, Mathias Cormann and Christopher Pyne on the Opposition Leader as the most left-wing person to have ever led Labor flopped utterly and completely.

    The mob will always work you out and they worked out pretty quickly that this was low-grade politics which had no bearing on their lot in life.

    It has been obvious for months that Labor’s chronic weakness lay in its total reliance on renewable energy but our PM’s own views on climate change for far too long prevented him from separating the wood from the trees.

    Finally, after months of dithering, spurred on by anxious Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg, Turnbull relented.

    Last Thursday Labor was the party of blackouts and that was a good start. Within 24 hours that phrase had morphed into the deadly “Blackout Bill”. If the PM can make that stick, then he may well be on the road to a political recovery which seemed so improbable just a couple of weeks ago.

    As Turnbull and his cohorts now use this phrase in every interview, every doorstop and every speech, that phrase will inevitably gain traction. The proof will come this summer and according to that latest AEMO report, there will be blackouts in Victoria and South Australia this summer.

    Other states like NSW and Queensland could also suffer on the hottest days.

    If Bill Shorten has any doubts about how effective this attack on the energy front might be, he can do no better than read a transcript of his shadow minister, Mark Butler, on Lateline last Thursday.

    Emma Alberici made him look pretty silly because he can’t admit to the realities of his policy folly. The attacks will now come thick and fast and fortune will be with the Coalition.

    It is only a couple of months until summer. The blackouts will occur in the four months after that. All Turnbull and his ilk need do is keep this strategy alive for a relatively short time. Labor remains a sitting duck unwilling to acknowledge they caught the wrong tram.

    If the Labor leader is too timid to take on the Left and insist on a sensible redrawing of his party’s tradition then perhaps my remarks should be directed to Anthony Albanese. Maybe Albo could take his mate Butler into a backroom and talk some sense into him. Shorten and his team have performed so well for so long.

    A total of 19 wins in a row in Newspoll is no mean feat and the last thing Labor needs is to fall at a late hurdle it could so easily jump with a modicum of policy agility.

    At a minimum surely Labor could see its way clear to support the idea of extending the life of some of the coal-fired power stations. This is not a huge concession and would at least to some extent limit the incredible hypocrisy of AGL. That company will push up the price of electricity for the assets it will still hold after Liddell closes in 2022.

    Cleaning up the world and cleaning up on the price is the perfect example of how a company should not behave. Labor will be condemned if it gives this mob succour and comfort.
