    8th Battalion A.I.F

    Beatham, Robert Matthew (1894–1918)
    Beatham embarked for Egypt in April 1915 and was returned to Australia on medical grounds in July. He re-embarked in September with reinforcements for the 8th Battalion and six months later moved on to France where he was twice wounded in action—at Pozières in August 1916 and Passchendaele in October 1917. When the great Allied offensive was launched on 8 August 1918, his unit was among those ordered to advance from Harbonnières and capture the high ground of Lihons north of Rosières. On approaching this German strong point on 9 August the 8th Battalion, its supporting tanks knocked out by heavy artillery fire, was halted by a line of machine-guns. Private Beatham’s company worked its way forward to enfilade the enemy position and, assisted by Lance Corporal W. G. Nottingham, he rushed forward and bombed the crews of four guns, killing ten men and capturing ten others. This action enabled the battalion to renew its advance. On 11 August when nearing its objective on the southern slope of Lihons it was again halted by German reinforcements. Beatham, though wounded, rushed another machine-gun and bombed and silenced it, but was riddled with bullets. He was buried at Heath cemetery, Harbonnières. His award of the Victoria Cross was posthumous.

    Jailbreaking your connected coffee machine: The idiocy of things

    How many more of these IoT devices that use DRM technology to validate the use of proprietary refills do we have to endure?

    Look, I understand the value of having refills that are authenticated and genuine and being able to automatically program a machine to fit the brewing and roasting profile of that consumable. However, you still need to be able to give end-users a choice of where to buy their basic consumables from.

    More often than not, a consumer will choose to buy supplies from the original manufacturer when customer service is good and they are rewarded for loyalty, such as through club and subscription programs.

    If you cannot demonstrate the value of your own supplies without using technology to lock out the competition, then you are doing it wrong.

    Internet of Things plus Digital Rights Management is the Idiocy of Things. There’s no value-add to this approach.

    The pollies are revelling in the ssm fiasco. Both sides have had plenty of time to address the issues when they were in power. But haven’t. They don’t give a stuff about gays, or any other Australian, for that matter.
    Even the gay politicians don’t give a stuff about the gays. For them, it’s politics first.
    Just look at how Penny Wong was anti marriage when voting yes at that time might have lost them electotates. If Labor even gets a sniff that they might lose this election, watch them go anti-marriage again. Worms on the bum of humanity.

    My goodness there was a foul smell coming from my laptop screen as I read this article in the Oz — All tells Tony Abbott destabilising the PM is overstepping the mark my bullshit-detector was going haywire – the comments are coming thick and fast – GetUp’s Alexandra and Kate are rostered on:

    One of the Liberal Party’s rising stars, former SAS commander Andrew Hastie, has privately warned his ally Tony Abbott that he has “overstepped the mark” in recent months by making comments viewed as destabilising to Malcolm Turnbull’s leadership.

    Mr Hastie, 34, a West Australian MP who is seen as a future cabinet minister, says he remains close to Mr Abbott, whom he met after being selected as the Liberal candidate in the Canning by-election in 2015. But he sees the Prime Minister as holding a “sacred office” and nobody should be “creating mischief in the background”.

    In an interview today in The Weekend Australian Magazine, Mr Hastie discusses his life in the ­military and his service in Afghanistan, including a highly controversial incident in which troops under his command cut the hands off dead Taliban soldiers to identify them.

    He also talks about his emergence as a strident opponent of same-sex marriage.

    But the conservative MP is sensitive about his portrayal in some sections of the media as a “religious nut job”.

    “I don’t want to shy away from it, but in an era of identity politics and cultural Marxism, people are looking for every reason to delegitimise someone,” he says when asked if he believes in creationism.

    Mr Hastie admits he was disappointed Mr Abbott was removed as prime minister a week before he won the Canning by-election two years ago and he thinks voters are still unhappy a first-term PM was dumped by his own party.

    He says he has counselled Mr Abbott to desist from publicly criticising Mr Turnbull. “It’s a sacred office, so creating mischief in the background to cause havoc for the elected leader of our country is against what I stand for,” he says. “I’ve had conversations with (Mr Abbott) and I’ve given fairly frank advice … I’ve said: ‘You’ve overstepped the mark here.’

    “But I say that as a friend. He’s been a good friend of mine and that’s what you do.”

  22. Senile Old Guy

    He says he has counselled Mr Abbott to desist from publicly criticising Mr Turnbull.

    Hastie is politically naive. Turnbull put Abbott on the back bench and the Liberal party tradition is that they can comment on what ever they want. If Turnbull put Abbott in Cabinet he would have been gagged because that is party policy. As always, Turnbull stuffed up. And, as Turnbull has ruined the Liberal party, Hastie would be smart to look to the future.

    From the Macquarie dictionary of Newspeak

    Nazi

    noun (plural Nazis) 1. a member of the National Socialist German Workers’ party, which was founded in 1919 and which in 1933, under Adolf Hitler, obtained political control of Germany; it established a dictatorship on the principles of control over all cultural, economic, and political activities of the people, belief in the supremacy of Hitler as Führer, anti-Semitism, and the establishment of Germany as a dominant world power. 2. (often lower case) someone who believes in or sympathises with policies characteristic of this party.3. (often lower case) Colloquial a. someone who is extremely domineering and unwilling to compromise. b. (with a modifier) someone who displays a dictatorial attitude about how people should think or behave with regard to a particular topic or thing: a kitchen Nazi.–adjective 4. of or relating to Nazis. [German colloquial, fromNa(tionalso)zi(alist) National Socialist]

    Definition 1 is straightforward, but such people are mostly dead of old age or senile.

    Definition 2 suits the modern”progressive” Gramscian/Alynskyite left, which seeks “principles of control over all cultural, economic, and political activities of the people” (from definition 1).

    Definitions 3 and 4 also match the bullying modern left.

    By command of the Macquarie dictionary, the modern left (which includes m0nty) are Nazis.

    Open season fellas!

    Hitler was not anti-Israel.

    He even mildly supported Israel by setting up a program to emigrate German Jεws to Israel (although the program imposed high fees on the individuals, and did not have high uptake). It fitted his philosophy that each people should have a land.

    DEFENCE
    ADF’s gender-neutral personnel facing new barriers

    @joekellyoz

    Gender-neutral defence personnel could face tough new restrictions barring them from key Australian Defence Force roles under moves to obtain special exemptions from sex discrimin­ation laws.

    The Weekend Australian can reveal the Turnbull government has spent two months examining how it should respond to the operational challenges and extra costs of catering for gender-­neutral personnel.

    Defence Personnel Minister Dan Tehan is considering an ­option to reinstate an exemption to the Sex Discrimination Act, which was removed more than four years ago when, in January 2013, all ADF employment categories were thrown open to women.

    The decision resulted in several positions — including navy clearance divers, army infantry jobs and armoured corps roles — being opened to female participation as part of a push to improve diversity within the ADF.

    The ADF has now suggested “unique operational requirements of military service” could make it difficult to meet the needs of personnel who identify as “gender X” and do not consider themselves male or female.

    Government sources have confirmed that any attempt to seek a new exemption to sex discrimination laws for the ADF would be limited in application to capture only those personnel who identified as “gender X”.

    The outcome may have been different if Mr Abbott’s protagonist had the fortitude to be upfront and offer to stand his ground instead of sniping and running like the cowardly piece of shit that he is. It may be that the nation is in a phase of terminal entropy that such a prick is now a celebrity with his smiling face on msm giving him a free kick with humanising and sympathetic bias.
    It is possible that someone such as an older professional who has always worked and acknowledges that the homo thing is a nothing given that they are such a minute part of the society would receive different treatment if he or she were to do a sneak attack on this clown.

    The irony is that Hastie got a reputation as a “religious nut job” during the by-election after he refused to talk about religion in a political campaign. His opponent, Matt Keogh, very specifically talked about being motivated by his “Irish-Catholic instinct to serve” or however he put it, and the secular lefties let that go through to the keeper, but Hastie just wanted to talk about the issues and was subject to a vicious online wispering campaign accusing him of being a Young Earther as a result of it.

    Latest intel suggests Mr Abbott’s assailant is an ‘anarchist DJ’. What I like about anarchists is their ongoing reliance on items produced and distributed through the orderly process of trade and co-operation. Reminiscent of the contemporary version of aborigines protesting in song with whitefella technology and musical instruments. Such groups don’t want to be subsistence survivalists as would be the outcome of their purported missions. They would like to see themselves as having a greater share of the wealth of the country and its amenities with no mutual obligation because they are special. It would be refreshing to see someone with significant gravitas (if such a person exists any more, now that any clown such as myself with an opinion and internet access can play on the same field as politicians and captains of industry) would point out the obvious disconnections of logic and hypocrisy of these types and that the Nation would be stirred to treat them as the threat that they are.

    Doubtless feelings run high on this reform question, and it is certainly understandable that LGBTI community members view Abbott’s (alleged) thick lip as nothing at all compared to life as second class citizens, subject to systemic discrimination, frequent insults, actual attacks.

    So, ‘actual’ attacks on gay people is horrific, but an actual attack on Abbott is both ‘alleged’ and ‘nothing at all’. Can’t have it both ways Lefties.

    Doubtless, Mark Kenny provides examples of this “systemic discrimination, frequent insults, actual attacks”? He would not make these claims if they were not true, would he?

    Yeah, sure. So why, if it is such a “sacred office” was Abbott even rolled as PM? Who was not just creating mischief in the background when Abbott was PM, but actively plotting to knife him, a first-term PM who won in a landslide? Who then led the LNP to a bare 1-seat “majority” in the HOR, squandering 13 of those that Abbott tore off the RGR fiasco? Hmmm?

    Please answer me that, Mr Hastie and all the bed-wetting non-liberals masquerading as Liberals.

    Abbott is one of only a couple in the coalition currently warming the government benches who’s actually spoken up in support of the most basic energy policy that can keep this country operating (despite his still having a bet each way and still very disappointingly waffling on the RET etc.) Abbott’s also one of the very few actually voicing the very legitimate concerns of a large proportion of the Australian public about the ongoing implications of any SSM legislation. He’s actually doing what the public needs and to a large degree wants him to do. Telling him to settle down is not what we want.

    The only policy Army should have on gender is to recruit only humans who can do 60 push-ups and run 5km in full kit in under half an hour.

    Despite the vindictiveness, vilification, harassment and bullying clearly coming for the Waffen SSm, still these creeps cannot state the simple truth.

    It’s the Yes vote and only the Yes vote, that is inciting and conducting violent acts and victimisation.

    While not for the same reasons, those from the “Yes” campaign are equally disappointed, condemning the violence and arguing the action’s of one person is not reflective of the cohort.

    “There is absolutely no place for violence in the marriage equality debate,” Alex Greenwich, independent MP for Sydney and co-chair Australian Marriage Equality tweeted.

    “This is about treating people fairly and with respect and dignity.”

    Tasmanians United for Marriage Equality spokesperson, Rodney Croome said the attack on Abbott was “beneath contempt”.

    I urge both Yes and No supporters to act with respect and restraint because, when this postal survey is over, we will still have to live together, side by side, as Australians,” he said.

    Hitler was not anti-Israel.

    He told the Grand Mufti he opposed a J3wish national state in Palestine (for the usual hysterical Antisemitic reasons) and he was ambivalent about the transfer agreement, which was in any case a pragmatic rather than an ideological response to the “J3wish problem”. The program declined until it ended in 1939 and by 1942 the “Final Solution” was in place. If the British, Commonwealth and Free French had lost the war in the Middle Eastern theatre, resulting in a pan-Arab state in Palestine, Iraq & Syria (which the Mufti petitioned Hitler for), it is not too difficult to imagine the Arabs enthusiastically carrying out their own “final solution” with Hitler’s blessing.

    Australia’s obesity problem will be cured very soon anyway. (Venezeualan style)
    It was caused by government and the food triangle, and by government yanking cigarettes out of people’s mouths, preferring death by obesity related illness than cancer.
    Smoking, having a relatively good life (trim, you know what I mean) getting cancer at around 65 and dying does not grow government sufficiently.

    A population obese and depressed all it’s adult life brings with it a plethora of problems for socialised health care and mental health departments to grow and flourish.
    It’s what I call the ” aboriginal example”
    Cause misery and hardship and a government learns it can grow from doing so.

    In every aspect of life, this is the key goal of government.

    Repeated from above, wouldn’t want you to miss it:

    From the Macquarie dictionary of Newspeak

    Nazi

    noun (plural Nazis) 1. a member of the National Socialist German Workers’ party, which was founded in 1919 and which in 1933, under Adolf Hitler, obtained political control of Germany; it established a dictatorship on the principles of control over all cultural, economic, and political activities of the people, belief in the supremacy of Hitler as Führer, anti-Semitism, and the establishment of Germany as a dominant world power. 2. (often lower case) someone who believes in or sympathises with policies characteristic of this party.3. (often lower case) Colloquial a. someone who is extremely domineering and unwilling to compromise. b. (with a modifier) someone who displays a dictatorial attitude about how people should think or behave with regard to a particular topic or thing: a kitchen Nazi.–adjective 4. of or relating to Nazis. [German colloquial, fromNa(tionalso)zi(alist) National Socialist]

    Definition 1 is straightforward, but such people are mostly dead of old age or senile.

    Definition 2 suits the modern”progressive” Gramscian/Alynskyite left, which seeks “principles of control over all cultural, economic, and political activities of the people” (from definition 1).

    Definitions 3 and 4 also match the bullying modern left.

    By command of the Macquarie dictionary, the modern left (which includes m0nty) are Nazis.

    He would do the same for Abbott if he were PM. There is an admirable impartiality to it.

    Frankly he belongs in the Australian Conservatives, but again, he has pledged himself to his office as a Liberal MP and won’t reneg.

    Then he should realise that Turnbull created the problem by not putting Abbott in the Cabinet. People in the Cabinet have to support positions adopted by the Cabinet; backbenchers do not.

    A defiant Mr Abbott vowed to keep speaking his mind on Federal ­Government policy direction despite several senior Liberals calling for the “out of control” Warringah MP to back off.

    And, when asked, he ­directly denied wanting to reclaim the prime ministership from Malcolm Turnbull saying: “No, I am very happy being a backbench member of the Government because it gives me the freedom to speak as I think best, and it gives me more time to be a very conscious local member.”

    “Obviously I support the Government, I support the Prime Minister, I am a member of the Government and it has always been the Liberal Party tradition that backbenchers can speak their mind on policy issues,” Mr Abbott said.

    If Hastie is so concerned, he should council Turnbull to do a reshuffle and put Abbott, far and away the Liberal Party’s best campaigner, back in Cabinet. But that would severely dent Turnbull’s ego, so it isn’t going to happen.

    “Surely as a gender diverse new age man, you mean straw “person” don’t you? Or was the use of “man” just a simple slip of the facade and deep down you really yearn to be one of us?

    Nevertheless, your claim that the few idiots do not represent the SSM movement is patently wrong. There are considerably more than a few. The 7000 odd who signed GetUp!’s petition to have Dr Pansy Lai deregistered are more than just a “few”. The ABC, the Guardian, AFL and the list goes on are more than just a few.

    The truth is anyone with a No vote is being personally attacked for their belief by a whole range of people who happen to run institutions. Where’s the polite debate? Where is the right to free speech and to hold a not unreasonable opinion? All gone because your side of politics are using ugly, bullying fascist thugs as enforcers and they are not just few in number.

    “It was nothing to do with the ‘yes’ campaign, that was just a sticker that a friend stuck on me,” he said.

    “[It] was just a lifelong ambition to headbutt a fascist because I’m a skinhead that likes ska music and hates fascism. He’s an evil c—, I’m an anarchist and I believe in human rights.

    The IQ of this person must be around 70.

    Well done that soldier! But somehow I don’t see a 50:50 balance easy to achieve.

    Nope. I could not even begin ‘to complete the requirements’ although for my size I am quite strong, especially with heavy suitcases in the Scottish morning after whiskey porridge. Unless the woman concerned was a freak bodybuilder and athlete combined, I doubt a woman could do the whole thing, in the required time, and still remain upright. Perhaps some of the guys helped her and I bet she doesn’t get regular periods; she’s probably knocked them right out with that sort of activity. You have to start to turn male to do the top level army sort of physical performance.

    I doubt a woman could do the whole thing, in the required time,

    They can’t. It’s not possible.
    Physical requirements for male and female Marines have always been different.
    Only because feminists didn’t like the fact that this made female Marines allegedly feel less respected, it was decided men and women would do the same training and drills. When this didn’t work, the “Dempsey rule” was applied. This was an Obama administration diktat that where women couldn’t possibly succeed at a training task, that task was to be adjudged unnecessary for modern warfare and watered down. Even after all of these dilutions and corruptions, only one woman has managed to fall over the line and graduate as a “combat” “Marine.” She is a total phony and a danger to everyone around her. In the field, in the shit, she will be taped up inside a Humvee until the men get back.

  205. Muddy

    I see Sinc has voted Yes.

    For another term of Malcanoe Trumble?

    Answer my query from yesterday’s thread, misery guts.

  218. JC

    Ya know how red heads have no soul. Blue eyed people may be bonking a relative if two of them get together. Yuck.

    New research shows that all blue-eyed people share a common ancestor. This person lived more than 6,000 years ago and carried a genetic mutation that has now spread across the world.

    The exact cause remains to be determined but scientists do know that eye colour began to change long before recorded history began. The following is a transcript of the video.

    All blue-eyed people have one ancestor in common, born around 6,000-10,000 years ago. Blue eyes are caused by a gene mutation. For years, researchers had searched for it on the OCA2 gene. The OCA2 gene determines how much brown pigment is in our eyes. But what they were looking for wasn’t there at all.

    The mutation was found on an entirely different gene called HERC2. HERC2 turns off OCA2, meaning it turns off the brown and reveals the blue. Every blue-eyed person has this exact same mutation.

    How did this mutation get its start? Possibly when humans migrated from Africa to Europe. This would explain why only people of European descent have blue eyes. It would also suggest that all blue-eyed people share a single European ancestor.

    Now, that’s an impressive family tree!

    Okay, it’s six to ten thousand years… but still. 🙂

  219. Makka

    What are you on about now, JC?

  220. C.L.

    Virtually to a man/woman, Australia’s ‘conservatives’ (especially at The Australian) have written the same column/voiced the same radio editorial on the survey.

    I want to make it plain that I personally support gay marriage and will be voting Yes in the poll. Having said that, I am very angry with bullying bullies and am very concerned about Fwee Speech and Da Churches …

    Decoded:

    I think Yes will win (and devout Christians embarrass me anyway) so I want to be on the winning side. Having said that, I make a living as a ‘conservative’ and need my public to be conned into accepting that I was on the right side and fought the good fight.

  221. Yep, munty’s a Nazi, there was never any doubt about that.

    LOL. The Cat position: don’t call us Nazi-curious, that wilful misuse of the language is unconscionable! Also, you’re a Nazi.

  222. Snoopy

    It never ceases to amaze me what personal stuff people post on Facebook. Is Sinc a folder or a scruncher?

  223. jupes

    Sports writer Patrick Smith of the Australian often doubles as the AFL’s propagandist and today’s article is a good example of that. This is him ranting about opposition to the AFL’s stupid support of homo-marriage:

    But to rail against the AFL for having a voice on same-sex marriage, especially when so many players of the AFLW are gay, is to not understand the Australian community.

    He also brings up the old canard that Adam Goodes was booed because of racism. Or as he puts it:

    [Adam Goodes] was bullied out of the game because he dared to be black.

    Yeah, nah Patty you delusional twit. Goodes publicly bullied a young teenage girl and was rewarded for doing so by – embarrassingly – being named Australian of the Year. He used that pulpit to ignorantly insult the ancestors of the majority of people who paid to watch him play. Unsurprisingly they booed him and he left.

    In other words Goodes brought politics to the football and was too weak to handle the consequences of that. It was wrong for him to do that then, and it is wrong for the AFL to do it now. Sam Newman was right that people go to the footy as an escape from that bullshit.

    It is the AFL and sychophants like Smith who do not understand the Australian community. Not at all, they are clueless.

    I saw an interview he gave. For a cowardly dickhead he’s quite smug.
    He must have contacted the media in order to give an interview. In the unlikely event he was contacted, he certainly didn’t put up much resistance.

    The perfect rebuttal (no pun intended) is to do the same to him in the street. Pretend to shake his hand for assaulting Abbott and then forehead the fucker hard and nasty.
