    Hillary’s new beef: Putin’s manspreading

    As if sexism, Bernie Sanders, James Comey, the Russians, and all the other things she blames her election loss on weren’t enough to complain about, Hillary Clinton has another thing she’d like you to know about: Putin is a manspreader.

    The former secretary of state confided to talk show host Stephen Colbert last night that the Russian president is a dreadful sexist, and one way she knows it is in his bad habit of “manspreading,” or, as New York subway riders know, sitting with one’s legs apart on a crowded subway so as to take up two seats.

    ‘I went over to shake his hand and then he headbutted me,’ Mr Abbott told 3AW radio.

    Mr Abbott said the headbutter wasn’t very good at it, but did make contact.”

    No commercial demand for nuclear power: PM
    ROJE ADAIMYAustralian Associated Press7:54PM September 21, 2017

    Malcolm Turnbull doesn’t see there being the commercial demand for nuclear power in Australia to warrant pushing its development.

    The prime minister says that while the country has among the biggest uranium reserves in the world, building nuclear power stations takes a very long time.

    China has a number of plants under construction but there is no “cookie cutter” design to help efficiently roll out the technology.

    There also needed to be bipartisanship, which right now “is not even remotely there”, he told a ‘politics in the pub’ event on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.

    “The projects take so long to build that they would be very likely to span the lifetime of several governments,” Mr Turnbull said on Thursday night.

    “They’re all bespoke, so it takes a very long time to construct them and very expensive.”

    On top of that, demand for electricity in Australia was flat or declining.

    “I don’t see there being the commercial demand for nuclear power,” he said.

    “That’s putting my businessman’s hat on rather than my politicians’ hat on.”

    It comes just a few weeks after the Minerals Council released a paper setting out the case for nuclear power.

    Nuclear power has relatively strong support among coalition MPs, but it remains a political hot potato and has been repeatedly ruled out by governments because of its cost.

    No comments allowed under the Oz article. Pity.

    Anyone know Turncoat’s phone number? He could be texted the contacts for the company which supplies small sealed nuclear reactors to US Navy vessels.

    This statement isn’t in inverted commas. I hope Turnbull didn’t make this claim.

  60. Egg:

    *You can run a nameplate 60 Hz motor at 50 Hz and it will require a proportionally lower input voltage (i.e. it will run at e.g. 1500 rpm instead of 1800 rpm).

    That explains something I read about many years ago.
    After the Ruhr Dams destruction by the Dam Busters, Germany tried to get more efficient use of its hydroelectric power stations elsewhere by dropping the Hz rate. Caused widespread damage to electric motors throughout the Ruhr.

    Carry on….

    To change the subject, I went to function the other night where Dr Bob Brown was the guest speaker.

    I’ve never had much time for Bob, but he was strangely impressive. For starters, his health and sanity appeared to have improved exponentially since he left Parliament. In his last days in the Senate, he looked like an incompetently animated corpse, cadaverous, glassy-eyed, a permanent rictus, twitching and gibbering manically; but now he looks, healthy, relaxed and happy.

    And his presentation was informative, humorous, and self-deprecatiory, almost entirely devoid of dogma or didacticism and he didn’t even mention SSM.

    At the end of the function, he went out of his way to go around and personally thank all the grunts who had put the show together, even the wait staff and the security lady in the front door. I’ve never before seen a VIP at this venue do anything like this. Of course, it may have been deliberately contrived, but it looked genuine and we were all pretty impressed.

    From the previous thread

    Hurricane Harvey Makes The Case For Nuclear Power

    Hurricane Harvey made land fall in Texas this week and the flooding was historic. What is shaping up to be the most costly natural disaster in American history, the storm has left refineries shut down, interrupted wind and solar generation, caused a constant worry about gas explosions, and caused a chain of events that led to explosions and fires at the Arkema chemical plant that is only the beginning.

    Over a fifth of the country’s oil production has been shuttered. Natural gas futures hit a 2-year high as did gasoline prices at the pump.

    But the Texas nuclear power plants have been running smoothly.

    The two nuclear reactors at the South Texas Project plant near Houston were operating at full capacity despite wind gusts that peaked at 130 mph as the Hurricane made landfall. The plant implemented its severe weather protocols as planned and completed hurricane preparations ahead of Category 4 Hurricane Harvey striking the Texas Gulf Coast on August 25th.

    Anyone who knows anything about nuclear was not surprised. Nuclear is the only energy source immune to all extreme weather events – by design.

    So I see that yesterday the media were itching to run the girl getting fired for being a “homophobe” story as a glorious Take That! story against a bigot prole.

    But then the lunatic urban middle class Canberran who fired her quite seriously came out saying that she shouldn’t be allowed near children, being for traditional marriage at all.

    You could hear the choking noises from the mediaratti up here as they had to sadly shoot the story in the head. For, you see, they couldn’t let the cat out of the bag that they think people who resist fag marriage are worse than pedo’s and should be banned from being around children just yet.

    Abbott didn’t beat the shit out of the guy who head butted him.

    Just an achingly massive let down he is. It’s like at the moment of truth he cucks out.

    I don’t normally go in for conspiracy theories, but I’ll bet good money this was a set up. Couple of henchmen lurking close handy, mobile phones at the ready, to record the whole affair. Member of “yes” campaign inflicts a split lip with a headbutt. Tony Abbott stands back and lands this clown a good one in the jaw. Suddenly there is footage all over the internet of his “massive overreaction.”

    John Hewson, the only politician in the world defeated by a cake – and with more razed businesses in his wake than Cyclone Tracy – has a light bulb moment …

    John Howard’s republican debate tactics threaten same-sex marriage.

    Yeah-eh … and?

    The only reason that I decided to stay on as leader after the election loss in 1993 was because of a genuine concern that John Howard would replace me. On two key issues: native title and the republic, I knew he would be particularly divisive by moving the party to the hardline “right”.

    Peter Costello remembers John Hewson:

    ON another occasion, closer to the 1993 election, Hewson called me into a meeting. “We need some cut-through issues. We can make law and order an issue if we promise to bring back the death penalty.” I swallowed. For a while I was speechless. His idea was to introduce the death penalty for rapists and child molesters. “There’d be huge support wouldn’t there?” I had to agree with that. But I pointed out: “Australia is party to international conventions against the death penalty. Besides, most of the crimes you have in mind are state laws. How could the commonwealth execute people for state crimes?” I was sent away to investigate. My investigation took a long time. I once asked Ian McLachlan: “Do you think we have an obligation to tell the Australian people our leader is a maniac?” He said: “No, the Australian people will figure it out for themselves.”

    @joekellyoz

    The Australian Defence Force has recruited personnel who don’t identify as male or female, including one of the nation’s first gender-neutral cadets.

    The Australian understands an Australian Defence Force Academy recruit has claimed gender neutrality, also identified as gender X status, which under national guidelines refers to a person who is of a “non-binary gender”.

    The gender X category was ­entrenched in mid-2013 under new government guidelines issued for all departments and agencies, and promoted by former Human Rights Commission president Gillian Triggs.

    “People who fall into this ­category may use a variety of terms to self-identify,” the guidelines state.

    “Gender is part of a person’s personal and social identity. It ­refers to the way a person feels, presents and is recognised within the community.

    A Defence source yesterday told The Australian a cadet had been transferred from an all-­female block to a mixed block and could no longer be ­referred to by instructors as “he” or “she” but by their last name or as “cadet”.

    An ADF spokesman confirmed that: “Defence currently has personnel who have identified as gender X. Due to privacy, ­Defence will not comment on ­individuals.’’

    The ADF declined to answer 10 questions, first sent on Wednesday night, asking for more information about its gender X policy, and ­issues dealing with gender X personnel.

    “The Defence of our nation is our first priority and we will examine anything that arises that may impact on our ability to achieve that,” a spokesman said.

    Oh My – Text of President Trump Executive Order on Sanctions To North Korea…
    Posted on September 21, 2017 by sundance

    Jumping ju-ju bones, now that we’ve read the stunning content of this executive order* it is completely obvious why Beijing took action today with their central bank instructions.

    President Trump and Secretary Mnuchin have structured this executive order in such a way that the downstream consequences from any economic engagement with the DPRK effectively cuts off that entity from engaging in commerce or economic activity with the United States.

    https://theconservativetreehouse.files.wordpress.com/2017/04/trump-oval-office-4.jpg

    It’s a jaw-dropping, and obviously effective, way to blockade any economic engagement with North Korea. That reality, and accepting that POTUS Trump gave a heads’ up to Xi Jinping, is obviously what precipitated Beijing to get out ahead of the executive order lest and Chinese entity be directly impacted and blocked from trade with the U.S.

    As power prices continue to surge, Australians believe household solar storage batteries are the key to cheaper and more reliable energy, according to a new poll of 2,000 households.
    Of those who already had solar systems, 60 per cent were considering adding a household storage battery. Most said the primary motivation for buying a solar battery was to reduce power bills. Only 6 per cent believed consumers were driven by the need to protect their homes from blackouts.

    Hey so is there a gofundme for the hero that gave Tony Abbott what he deserved to help with his legal fees? I’ll throw in a thousand or two.

    Normally Branco isn’t quite as nasty … but that one is viscous. Also accurate. I think I’ll bookmark it.

    The main point of Christianity was this: that Nature is not our mother: Nature is our sister.

    Nature is a cold-hearted, homicidal bitch.

    I have been censored by the moderators on the article about the lovely young Christian girl sacked by a bigoted ignoramus not taking legal action against the ’employer’ – all I said was this: Now that is what I call Christianity at work and shows the true character of her bigoted employer” That’s it — then I asked the moderator if I was censored because I used the word bigot and that was moderated too. I guess they’re really skittish when it comes to “yes” bigots taking legal action for slights.

    Going back to C.L’s post at 10:34pm and the pic of Di Caprio and Kerry. Do I see one of those syphilitic spots on Loopy Lennie’s face? They were quite fashionable in the 18th century as Hogarth so aptly recorded. Lenny was famous back in the day for spreading his favours.

    Robin Speed is a legend. Good on him – shame I’m not a solicitor and member of the Law Society – I want that toff-nosed elitist nitwit that authorised the statement on behalf of all the members without consultation to be held to account. Let it be.

    Law Society may go where few dare to venture
    With just another hundred of so signatures, solicitor Robin Speed will have all the support he needs to force the NSW Law Society to hold an extraordinary general meeting.

    Once that happens, the level of discomfort among the leadership of that organisation is likely to be intense.

    After issuing a statement claiming the legal profession was united in backing same-sex marriage, the same leadership group will have no option but to produce a very different document. In preparation for extra­ordinary general meetings, the ­society is ­required to send its members ­information on the case for and against the proposed ­resolutions.

    Because of the way Speed has drafted his resolutions, the Law Society will be required to ­explain why it is necessary to protect fundamental rights and freedoms that would be affected by same-sex marriage.

    Remember, it was just last month that the Law Society ­endorsed same-sex marriage without a word about this.

    But that’s not the worst of it.

    The case against Speed’s resolutions, which will also be produced by the Law Society, looks like ­requiring someone to explain why it is wrong to protect fundamental rights and freedoms.

    The untenable nature of such an argument should hand Speed a victory. But even if he loses, he will have succeeded in forcing the ­society to recognise that fundamental rights are at stake.

    The protection of fundamental rights and freedoms should inform everything the Law Society does. Yet until this week, when it issued a statement saying these rights “should remain unaffected” by same-sex marriage, the Law ­Society had vacated the field on this issue.

    And when it returned to the fray, it did so in a way that was just a little too clever. This week’s statement can be read two ways. Does it amount to an assurance that same-sex marriage will not impinge on fundamental rights? Or does it amount to a warning that care must be taken to ensure same-sex marriage does not ­impinge on these rights?

    If Speed and the other insurgents sign up 250 members, they will need to be consulted when the Law Society produces the material that will be distributed before the meeting. If that material is to ­address the substance of Speed’s proposal, it will need to discuss not just why rights and freedoms should be protected but how this should be done. That might ­require the Law Society to grapple with the question some politicians want the community to ignore: is religious freedom a right the federal government can legitimately restrict to clergy and ­religious ­institutions? Or is it a right that ­belongs to every Australian?

    Abbott smacking that wanker would have resulted in an extra five percent for the NO vote, and put him back in the Lodge by Christmas.

    “cops called in over Abbott attack”

    This is the sydney morning herald online clickbait.

    Somehow they will get to their desired meme:

    For US politics junkies, a new website sans Trump Derangement — DCwhispers.com. You’ll see more of these new news and commentary outlets because of the MSM’s derelection in campaigning against Trump instead of doing its job.

    Footy show highlights, Sam Newman calling the afl sycophantic political whores and saying outright that a sporting organisation should just run sport properly.

    Crony political sycophant eddie ‘waleed took my job’ mcguire then smugly announces that the ssm debacle is:

    “just to say they are welcome”.

    That Sam Newman blast is gold. I liked how he said people are just looking for a release at the footy. Dead right. People just want to go the football and forget about their troubles. Get away from it. Bit of entertainment, a beer & a pie with mates or family. Why is that so hard for administrators to understand?

    I see Gaia is punishing the people of Mexico and the Caribbean islands ,serves them right for voting Trump into the Presidency ,instead of hilarity ,the choice of the communist u.n. International fascist ,soros /I G Farben mafia . Where are the media stories about this ? Not approved by the central committee was it?
