    The ABC will be measuring skull size soon.

    They’ll get around to nose length later.

  2. Oh dear. It looks like David Leyonjhelm/the LDP voted for Turnbull’s SSM anti-vilification bill.

    So-called contemporary libertarians are utter cretins. They really are the most useless pansy cucks. In around a decade libertarians will be debating the benefits of privatising Gulags…as they are being shipped off to the Gulag. At least we can use them as cannon fodder when the socialists ramp up the mass murder machines again.

    Now Senator David Leyonhjelm admits he took his eye off the ball and failed to resist this attack on our freedom

    In Leyonhjelm’s defence its easy to see how something called the Marriage Law Survey (Additional Safeguards) Bill 2017 could slip past him, especially given the complete lack of coverage in the media.

  4. feelthebern

    Have chaps who had the “Burn Churches” banner been charged yet?
    If not, why not?

    “I’ll say whatever you want me to say, please just stop!”

    Which, of course, just inflames the BOM’s and ABS’ sadistic urges further. The tight supple leather, the clinking chains, the smooth hard billiard ball-gag in the mouth, the smell of sweat and ecstatic pain…

    How they love their jobs.

  6. A Lurker

    The Turnbull Government’s disgraceful “emergency” laws to police free speech during the gay-marriage campaign were resisted by just Pauline Hanson’s One Nation and Australian Conservative Cory Bernardi. Now Senator David Leyonhjelm admits he took his eye off the ball and failed to resist this attack on our freedom – and this dangerous precedent.

    I ask again, does the LDP actually give a fig for our fundamental freedoms – speech, expression, assembly, conscience and religion?

  7. Fisky

    In Leyonhjelm’s defence its easy to see how something called the Marriage Law Survey (Additional Safeguards) Bill 2017 could slip past him, especially given the complete lack of coverage in the media.

    But Leyonhjelm admits he knew it was an anti-free speech bill, but just couldn’t muster up the energy to vote against it –

    I actually feel a bit guilty that I didn’t kick up more of a fuss about that. I hadn’t even looked at the Bill until Monday morning in the Senate [when I saw it included] harassment and vilification…so I wasn’t too happy about it.

    It went through with no opposition whatsoever…and I thought ‘well, what hope have I got of doing much about it?…

    Actually, that’s not true. Hanson and Bernardi voted against this appalling bill. But the LDP was too low-energy to oppose.

  8. Vote percentages.

    I reckon less than 50% turnout.

    The yes/no percentages don’t really matter because many no votes are actually yes votes that have suppressed their desire to be a yes vote. Some votes secretly desire to be a combined “yeah, nah”.

    And the margin in favour of “yes” votes will be a margin that the ABS thinks is believable.

  9. Fisky

    The only freedom that “libertarians” support in absolute terms is freedom of movement, especially for Muslims into Western countries. All other liberties are negotiable.

  10. JC

    He also recounted the man saying “if you are part of the yes campaign and don’t want to get hurt then fuck off.” …

    http://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/development-agenda/

    Yeah, but don’t panic, this is them yet again having to push their agenda back. They’ve had to do it quite a few times.

    The bloody Dutch (then), Prince Willem being crowned the world water czar, way back, was another of their, ‘only man can save the planet man is killing‘, scams to scare the world into compliance, to make us willingly give up our right to water, to “save” water. I can’t even remember it’s official name anymore, because like all their scams and CONs, they have to keep morphing them into something else as more people cotton on to what they’re up to.

    Anyway, just like The League of Nations that crumbled in heap, they told themselves that they’d learned from their mistakes and would simply come back stronger, with the UN, EU … and here we are, watching the world laugh at Those Bloody DisUnited, Communist Nations who’s only real success is making hell on earth, that even arseholes are getting bloody sick of living in.

    Sure, a lot of people will chose to die with the inhuman, anti-human, God hating monsters, but as for the living, there is a whole big, beautiful world to work at building heaven on.

    Wow. Huge increase in the murder rate thanks to #blacklivesmatter

    The BLM Effect: Homicides Up 20% Nationally from 2014 to 2016

    It seems pretty obvious that the murder bulge has been concentrated among blacks killing blacks, especially in cities where Black Lives Matter was active and successful at discouraging cops. In both Baltimore and Chicago, for example, the increase in murders started the same week as BLM protests.

    There were 14,164 homicides in 2014 (down slightly from 14,319 in 2013).

    2014 was the year of Ferguson and the emergence of BLM, launching the contemporary era of homicide. In 2015 there were 15,583 killings. In 2016, 17,250.

    That’s about 4,450 incremental homicides over the 2014 base rate during the last two years of the Obama Administration. That’s 1,000 more dead bodies than all the blacks lynched in U.S. history (according to the NAACP).

    Heckuva job, Obammie.

  35. Mother Lode

    What the YES camapaign has done (and probably because they were planning way back before there was even talk of a plebiscite or survey because they only planned for one thing while everyone else was thinking about all things) is make the whole thing about religion and the homosexuals right to ‘love’.

    All objections are (as portrayed and, publicly at least, seen) are religious ones. Religious nutters – old cantankerous and not long for this world – are the face of the no case. There are no other bases to object – such as the role marriage plays in creating an environment for the upbringing of children, or the quantum increase in government interference and authority.

    And why should gays have marriage? Because gays love too. And that is it. Marriage is a big expensive party with lots of cake, lots of tacky maudlin speeches, and photographers. Marriage is a love party. That is all. And if straights can have it then should gays be able to.

    The YES campaign is dishonest and political. It slanders anyone who does not toe the line. I really don’t see anything positive could grow from something so poison.

  39. Pretty amateur attempts too. An investigative journalist would probably take about two minutes to expose the dickheads.

    Indeed. Has any journalist in Australia simply called Sydney Trains and asked if they have a report relating to the incident concerned? Surely, given the recent legislation policing the plebiscite, graffiti written on public transport would require some paperwork. Are there any journalists left in Australia?

    Additional statistics from Crime in the United States, 2016 include:

    Last year’s data shows there were 95,730 rapes reported to law enforcement, based on the UCR’s legacy definition. (Learn more about the updated rape definition.)
    Of the violent crimes reported to police in 2016, aggravated assault made up 64.3 percent, while robbery was 26.6 percent. Rape (legacy definition) accounted for 7.7 percent of the violent crimes reported last year, and murder made up 1.4 percent.
    About 7.9 million property crimes were reported to the UCR, with losses (excluding arson) of about $15.6 billion.
    The report estimates that law enforcement agencies made about 10.7 million arrests in 2016 (excluding arrests for traffic violations).

  49. Mother Lode

    Obama was just another egotistical lefty in love with the sound of his own voice – whether actually speaking or speaking to himself.

    Utterly convinced of his own intelligence and his being uniquely gifted to discern a perfect world, and pathetically impatient with actually looking at how the real world works, he just implements his ‘solutions’.

    Which not only fail dismally, but fail the people he thought he was helping.

    BLM is a great example. He thought that depriving White people of some of their supposed ‘privilege’ was going to help Blacks. In fact the lot of Blacks in the US has slid backwards.

    It is wonderful that this rambling piece of shit, after announcing that he was going to be setting up an office to fight Trump, has all but disappeared from the landscape. No one cares what he says, or thinks.

    After the whole gaudy display of his presidency, the vaulting sycophancy of the press, and the theatrics about how a new age had dawned, he has sunk beneath the waves with a barely audible “glub…glub…glub”.

    Mind you, I suspect he feels quite exposed now he is out of office and cannot control government departments and the press is far too distracted to listen – and he is waiting to see which of his abuses of power will come out.

    In 2016, there were an estimated 1,248,185 violent crimes. Murder and nonnegligent manslaughter offenses increased 8.6 percent when compared with estimates from 2015. Aggravated assault and rape (legacy definition) offenses increased 5.1 percent and 4.9 percent, respectively, and robbery increased 1.2 percent.
    Nationwide, there were an estimated 7,919,035 property crimes. The estimated numbers for two of the three property crimes show declines when compared with the previous year’s estimates. Burglaries dropped 4.6 percent, larceny-thefts declined 1.5 percent, but motor vehicle thefts rose 7.4 percent.
    Collectively, victims of property crimes (excluding arson) suffered losses estimated at $15.6 billion in 2016.
    The FBI estimated that law enforcement agencies nationwide made 10.7 million arrests, excluding those for traffic violations, in 2016.
    The arrest rate for violent crime was 159.7 per 100,000 inhabitants, and the arrest rate for property crime was 420.6 per 100,000 inhabitants.
    By violent crime offense, the arrest rate for murder and nonnegligent manslaughter was 3.7 per 100,000 inhabitants; rape (aggregate total using the revised and legacy definition), 7.3; robbery, 29.8; and aggravated assault, 119.0 per 100,000 inhabitants.
    By property crime offense, the arrest rate for burglary was 64.3 per 100,000 inhabitants; larceny-theft, 326.5; and motor vehicle theft, 26.7. The arrest rate for arson was 3.0 per 100,000 inhabitants.
    In 2016, there were 13,217 law enforcement agencies that reported their staffing levels to the FBI. These agencies reported that, as of October 31, 2016, they collectively employed 652,936 sworn officers and 280,206 civilians, a rate of 3.4 employees per 1,000 inhabitants.

    The women still left here, as I hear there has been a mass exodus of precisely none of them to other cultures to escape the tyranny of the western male, need a wake up call, and I call on all decent women that care for their countries to get onto to your “social media” that so ingrains the female trait of virtue signalling and fight these raving sexist lunatics fighting to wreck the joint in your name.

    This is so problematic to a media and a side of politics that relies totally on feelings and ignorance.

    Hestia is proud to introduce the Cotton Comfort Contour bra in Pink Marle- because style and comfort don’t have to be mutually exclusive.

  75. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    I’m struggling with the whole symbolism of this protest – kneeling is the ultimate form of submission? They show the ultimate form of submission to the National Anthem?

    Yes, I see kneeling on one knee as an honour to someone greatly respected or even loved – as when getting a knighthood by the Queen (does this happen any more?), or as in a marriage proposal (where it has come back into fashion in a big way). Even when he was in deadly earnest, Hairy refused to make with this genuflect, just told me the date he’d arranged for our not-yet-discussed marriage, and he refused to bob down in the sand recently on Broome’s Cable Beach in spite of me indicating it might be a nice, albeit belated, gesture.

    Diamonds? Certainly. On da knee? Nope.

    From incoherent rambler at 11:46 am:

    “Vote percentages.

    I reckon less than 50% turnout.

    The yes/no percentages don’t really matter because many no votes are actually yes votes that have suppressed their desire to be a yes vote. Some votes secretly desire to be a combined “yeah, nah”.

    And the margin in favour of “yes” votes will be a margin that the ABS thinks is believable.”

    I twigged to all this when I discovered we were not having a referendum and that we were instead having something I’d never heard of before.

    Lord Stumbull will bring to bear his exceptional intellect to announce that the “No” voters had become awfully confused, that the Great Big National Focus Group had not lived up to expectations and that he, as your prime minister, had concluded what Tony Abbott failed to conclude when he was prime minister.

    Kneeling is talked about as the ultimate form of submission but the tradition is to show respect to the anthem by standing. These guys are going out of their way to not stand.

    What is going through their heads when they kneel is the point. I suspect they are worshiping themselves, or worshiping the cause they think they are claiming – and ignoring the anthem.

    When I walk out from train stations in the city there is often some grubby guy on his knees with coins in an upturned hat. He is not respecting or submitting to anyone. He is trying to look abject and pitiable – to get money off me.

    Origin of the Name Dallas
    The origin of the name of the town of Dallas is obscure. We have no primary evidence from John Neely Bryan, the founder of the town, indicating exactly how he chose the name “Dallas.” Bryan (1810-1877), a trader, farmer, lawyer, and land speculator, is well documented in legal and business records but left few personal writings. Frank M. Cockrell, an early pioneer who knew Bryan, recalled that Bryan asserted “the town was named for my friend Dallas”.
    (WPA Dallas Guide and History, p. 43,
    History of Early Dallas by Frank M. Cockrell, and Dallas: The Deciding Years by A. C. Greene, p. 7).
    There has been much speculation about exactly who that person named Dallas was. Cockrell believed that it was George Mifflin Dallas, vice-president of the United States during the administration of President James K. Polk. Dallas County is generally believed to have been named for George Mifflin Dallas since Polk County, named for President Polk, was created on March 30, 1846, the same day that Dallas County was created. The city, however, is a different story.​

    No evidence exists that Bryan ever knew George Mifflin Dallas. In addition, the town of Dallas bore that name at least three years before the county was created. George Mifflin Dallas had no documented interest in Texas until he made a casual reference favoring Texas statehood in an 1844 letter to a senator from Mississippi—again, after the town of Dallas, Texas, was named.
    In truth, we will probably never know for whom John Neely Bryan intended to name the city. Bryan never managed to write down memoirs or reminiscences; he died in the State Lunatic Asylum in Austin in 1877.

    On the vote outcome. The Essential poll is 58% Yes, 33% No & 9% Don’t Know.

    – the Yes crowd 72% has already voted to No at 26%
    – The Yes Crowd has 57% on Will Def Vote, while No has 39%.

    Now the problem for those thinking the no vote will get up is that there is no doubt there will be a few shy trumpers in there, but probably not enough.

    Yes will win & be about 55-60%.

    As an aside, I went to put money on Yes and Sportsbet only allows me to be $7.

    Jacinta Patterson’s same-sex marriage postal survey form is on the family table at her Sydney home. The 19-year-old economics student will vote Yes, but so far hasn’t gotten round to it. “I’ve been busy,” she said. “I’ll do it this week.”

    According to Newspoll survey results, there is a sliding scale of voter turnout, increasing with age, in the same-sex marriage postal vote. Just 76 per cent of people aged 18 to 34 have, or “definitely will”, hand in their vote, the lowest turnout of any age bracket.

    “I think 18 to 35-year-olds are the most passionate about the issue, but I guess we’re a little lazy,” Ms Patterson said.

    “The busier you are, the more organised you are, perhaps. It’s funny, you don’t have to research it. It’s just a human right.”

    The UNSW economics student said she had even encouraged friends to vote Yes through her social media pages, but she hasn’t managed to get to the post office.

    7/. Opinion polls would mystify the opinionistas, as no matter how polls are rigged to push for the correct answer, they always come up showing majority public support for the player.
    8/. Turnbull would quietly drop the player from the Prime Minister’s gala sports dinner.
    9/. President Trump would send out via Twitter an standing invitation for the player to have dinner with him at the White House.

    A police officer has been bitten during the arrest of a woman at Parramatta Railway Station.

    Officers attached to the Police Transport Command were patrolling the station precinct about 4pm yesterday (Monday 25 September 2017), when a woman attempted to board a train allegedly without a valid Opal card.

    When police spoke to the woman, she allegedly became aggressive and refused to comply with directions.

    A struggle ensued when police attempted to arrest the woman, during which a male officer was bitten on his right forearm.

    The 20-year-old woman was taken to Parramatta Police Station and charged with five offences:

    • Assault police/cause actual bodily harm

    • Assault police

    • Spit in or on passenger vehicle, train or public area

    • Use offensive language

    • Fail to comply with a direction.

    The woman, from Kingsgrove, was refused bail to appear in Parramatta Local Court today (Tuesday 26 September 2017).

    The police officer has been treated in hospital for the injury and given a tetanus shot.

    42% of the eligible population voting Yes and 58% split between 28% No and 30% abstaining is a resounding victory. There’s no point trying to imply that abstainers have an opinion, or deserve an opinion, or are imputed to have an opinion (they could equally be called “no objections” voters and added to the Yes).

    I disagree Andrew. You say, “they,” as in the non-voting Australians “could equally be called no objections voters” when they clearly didn’t vote so to call them voters in any form is wrong. There’s only a handful of reasons why you wouldn’t vote (particularly given you’ve got over a month to vote anyway and it’s not like you’ve only got 8 hours on a Saturday) and you’ve every right to vote.

    A group of old ladies (no supporters) told me they wouldn’t vote because it’s not a secure vote. Others told me they wouldn’t vote because the outcome was presupposed by the YES campaign or an incoming Shorten Government anyway. I could go on and on with excuses (yes, for both sides), but at the end of the day the LGBTIXYZ group couldn’t even secure half the population’s support; that’s a fact.

    Let’s just break that down. He bought suits. Bought. With money. More than once. And having bought these suits, he would get bigger sizes so he could cut the legs off to make ties … because he couldn’t afford ties (which are for sale at about 50 cents at any op-shop).

  186. Rebel with cause

    There’s no way you could make a tie from a bit of excess pant leg. Unless Clooney was buying suits made for a 11ft man. You need about 1.5m of fabric to make a tie.

  187. Mother Lode

    I would love to have seen Clooney with his ‘cut’ suits – extending his arm to shake hands with the frayed uneven sleeve, and perhaps adjusting his wretched weedy tie without a lining.

    Or perhaps he bought silk suits and made his own 5-fold and 7-fold ties.

    And what is his point in the SMH article – that because he was not in an elite set as a kid it is impossible for him to be in one now?

    This is the real tell – his protestations don’t actually make sense. He just has to say something.

    For instance, sharing struth’s, ‘time for men to men and women to be women’ rant (what’s a complimentary word for ‘rant’?), along with Gavin McInnes’, Get off My Lawn, could be some first steps in a quick turn around back to sanity, if they’re shared around with people who instinctively know and crave these things, but simply haven’t been exposed to enough people good at expressing them.

    In response the Times tut tuts that “warehousing” migrants in Libya is inhumane ignoring human rights by leaving them to the tender mercies of the locals. Opines the Times, “they should be rescued and asylum claims processed more quickly.” Ring any bells? Natually they fail to see that by removing the pull factors potential migrants will be dissuaded from making the perilous journey into the Libyan hellhole

    Google has gone mad. Many simple queries no longer make sense.

    A simple query of “White Couples” on Google results in pictures of predominantly mixed couples – couples where one of the two individuals is black. Not what you think of when you think of white couples but these are new times.

    Another query of “American Inventors” on Google results in a list of predominantly black American inventors. Many names in the list the average American has never heard of. For some reason, famous American inventors such as Henry Ford, Charles Goodyear, Eli Whitney, Benjamin Franklin, Samuel Morse, and Orville and Wilbur Wright are missing from the list. George Washington Carver was a genius with peanuts but his inventions never flew people around the world to Hong Kong and back like the Wright brothers invention – the airplane.

    Google mirrors this crazy pattern in nearly every query related to our President Donald Trump. When you look at “Trump economy” – the results are predominantly negative even though the stock market is up 22% since the election, the US Debt is up only $200 billion since the inauguration even though by this time Obama had increased the US Debt by $1 trillion more than this at the same time in his Presidency. And, unemployment is down to 4.4%.

    Also, not one title link in the first three pages of results for “Trump Stock Market” indicate that the stock market is up 4,000 points since the election or 22%.

    No wonder the EU fined Google $2.7 billion for query search manipulation.
    Their results make no sense!

    JC, did you ever own an Afghan hound? Those buggers NEVER slept.

    My brother had an Afghan named Kahn. Nobody gets a dog to play chess with but man was that thing dumb. Dunno about whether it slept… they were all stoners so nobody noticed.

    I fled communist tyranny to breathe and speak freely, to live without the fear and obligatory debasement of paying lip service to evil. Don’t think me dramatic when I say the the Left in general and same-sex marriage bullies in particular have inspired a deeply unsettling sense of deja vu

    Funny how David Leyonhjelm yet again missed out on an opportunity to uphold free speech against the tyranny of the trannies & gays & their sycophantic politicians in this country. Funny that.

    I guess SS”M” is higher up the totem pole than free speech to the likes of DL. Anyway, it answers why Sinclair hasn’t bothered to post about the issue of the government placing their feet on the throat of free speech.

  225. So what they’ve done will please exactly nobody

    That is highly inaccurate.

    It will very much please those who despise the game.

    How that will improve crowds and ratings, oops…

    As opposed to people who enjoy being fucked up the arse or who fully support being fucked up the arse?!

    Supported by inner city fruitcakes.

    Not funny, not funny at all, and what makes it even less funny is how so many still work at trying to make a joke of everyone who tried to warn you all from the get go.

    F.A.G. speech trumps free speech.

    struth, I mainly posted that for IT’s benefit. Sometimes I think he’s actually Rodney Rude.

    You should not assume that others share your taste in kitsch.

    Re Rodney Rude, I’m reminded of Seinfeld and Norm Macdonald’s critics of Roger Dangerfield (CICGC); his material started to tank, along with his reputation among comics, when he started piling on the swearing and cursing.

    Good Tweet back at CNN from our own Rita Panahi

    ( Scored a ReTweet by PJW ).

    Frances Abbott is a terrible person.
    To do what she has done to her father should result in a light stoning in a righteous world.

    Exactly. Limestone and sandstone only. No granite.

    Speaking of Norm Macdonald and sporting elites who deserve ridicule … Norm’s evisceration of the latter at the ESPYs still stands alone:

    Would be banned by the Monty-ites of the US left in 2017.

    Excellent. The Left are now busily eating their own.

    Some slightly dusky Antifa chick calls out some white Antifa foot soldier for his inherent racism.

    The eventual purges are going to be Stalinesque.

    Incidentally, Sinc’s mates at the Conversation ran an article that No voters have “lower cognitive ability.” (For those with low cognitive ability, trust me – it’s not a compliment.)

    Yes yes, and Malcolm Turnbull has the potential to be a truly great Prime Minister.
    Also Libertarianism is the hot new trend sweeping the nation.

  237. Stimpson J. Cat

    I’d be surprised if any Cat/Kitteh had not worked for nine hours without a designated meal break,

    Does lsd count as a meal?

    Rodney rude was never a legend in Australia.

    If he’d written a song he’d be a one hit wonder.

    He’s right up there with peter plus.

    An interesting tidbit from PJ Media. Some of those sanctimonious knee benders might need straightening out.
    An NFL player is arrested, on average, every seven days.
    Did you know, that as of this writing, it’s been 24 days since an NFL player was arrested? The odds that we would go that long in between player arrests are 25 to 1! In case you were wondering, there’s an entire website dedicated to tracking all the NFL players who have been arrested.

    “I would buy suits that were too big and too long and cut the bottom of the pants off to make ties so I’d have a tie to go on job interviews.”

    So, he’d have had to buy suit pants that were nine feet long, or else his ties would barely come down to his clavicle. Or maybe he meant bow ties – I wonder if George knows his way around sewing a bow tie?

    Somebody should keep Clooney talking.

    The more these aging male models open their mouths the better.

  242. Baldrick

    I found something for George to wear.

    “I would buy suits that were too big and too long and cut the bottom of the pants off to make ties so I’d have a tie to go on job interviews.”

    What was he smoking at the time?

    Does lsd count as a meal?

    Only when capitalized, Stimpy. 🙂
