    Joe Lauria worked at the WSJ and Boston Globe. He wrote a piece about the origins of Wussiagate and the D’rat money connection. It has been yanked from the Huffington Post after sitting there for 24 hours.

    The article is here and makes for interesting reading. It seems there was a real d’rat/Russia connection after all.

    16th Battalion A.I.F

    Potts, Arnold William (1896–1968)
    On 18 January 1915 Potts enlisted in the Australian Imperial Force and was posted to the 16th Battalion. He served at Gallipoli from July and was promoted sergeant in October. Commissioned in January 1916, he was sent to the Western Front where he commanded the 4th Light Trench Mortar Battery as a captain. For his actions in August at Mouquet Farm and at German Strong-Point 54, on the Somme battlefield in France, he won the Military Cross. In February 1918 he rejoined the 16th Battalion. He was severely wounded at Vaire Wood, near Hamel, in July and evacuated to England in August. His A.I.F. appointment terminated in Western Australia on 9 March 1919.
    Potts joined the A.I.F. on 1 May 1940 and was posted to the 2nd/16th Battalion. For his leadership during the Syrian campaign in June-July 1941 he was awarded the Distinguished Service Order. Back in Australia, he was granted the temporary rank of brigadier and given command of the 21st Brigade on 6 April 1942.
    The 21st Brigade was sent to Papua early in August and Potts was ordered to recapture the village of Kokoda from the Japanese. Reaching Alola on the Owen Stanley Range on 23 August, he took command of Maroubra Force. Because of inadequate supplies, he could only take defensive action. When the Japanese attacked on the 26th, the timely arrival of leading elements of two battalions (2nd/14th and 2nd/16th) of his brigade enabled him to hold his ground. After four days of fighting, often hand-to-hand, at Isurava, he retreated along the Kokoda Track to Efogi, maintaining a tenacious rearguard action.

  18. THE AUSTRALIAN canola industry is closely monitoring the potential ban of glyphosate in the European Union (EU), concerned it could have an impact on import regulations in what is by far and away our major market for canola.

    At present EU [Minimum Residue Limits] for glyphosate are at 10 milligrams per kilogram, lower than Australia’s 20mg/kg, however there have been no issues with Australian exports not meeting Euro standards.

    “Most of our canola that goes to Europe is used for making biodiesel rather than for human consumption so that could be a factor.”

    And they wonder why the Poms want to Brexit…

    TheirABC in 2001 heralds in the dawn of wind power for Mawson Base in Antarctica:

    The notorious winds of Antarctica will be put to good use to power research bases for Australian scientists.
    The Australian Antarctic Division is considering replacing its diesel powered generators with wind turbines, if they can withstand the harsh climate of the great southern continent. Wind speeds around Australia’s Mawson base average over 40km/hr, year round.
    The Division favours wind power because of the reduced environmental impact, negligable greenhouse gas emissions, and potential cost savings.

    ——
    Today via TheirABC:

    Mawson Antarctic research station relying solely on diesel after wind turbine crashes to ground.
    Expeditioners at Mawson station discovered the head of the 30-metre Enercon E30 turbine had fallen to the ground about 9:00pm on Tuesday.
    The cause of the collapse was unclear, as weather conditions had been moderate over the last few days.

    Contracts between a consenting adult male and female don’t matter anymore. The Australian Low Court has decided prenup agreements aren’t worth the paper they’re written on. Another day and another attack on men.

    He was a multi-millionaire property developer, she was his much younger Eastern European bride who spoke little English.

    The High Court has this morning set aside their prenuptial agreement in a landmark ruling that lawyers warn will open the doors to fresh legal challenges by other former spouses.

    The couple met online in 2006 on a “website for potential brides” when the husband was 67 and she was 36.

    The husband, known as Mr Kennedy, had assets of at least $18 million. He was divorced from his first wife and had three adult children.

    Soon after he met the wife online, he told her that if they married, “you will have to sign paper. My money is for my children.”

    However, this morning the High Court unanimously set aside the binding financial agreements they signed before and after the wedding because they were the result of “unconscionable conduct”. A majority of judges also said the wife, known as Ms Thorne, signed the agreements because of “undue influence”.

    Contract law is how the judge feels about it now.

    Liberty Quote
    Conventional wisdom does not regard Communism with the same abhorrence as fascism, even though if you want to be an accountant about it and add up the skulls of the dead, you will find that the Communists murdered many more people than the fascists did, began murdering before fascists came to power and carried on murdering after the fascists had gone. Yet few can bring themselves to see fascism and Communism as moral equivalents.

    From the Courier-Mail on the prenup:

    When she first saw the agreement wedding guests were invited, Ms Thorne’s family had arrived from overseas, her dress had been made and the reception had been booked.

    So the precedent is this: If you want your prenup to be binding, don’t pull it out of your back orifice at the last minute.

    I can’t tell you the number of older men I saw with east European bimbos at a hotel we stayed for a few days before our friends apartment became available on the recent trip to NY.

    We stayed at the Surrey and the bar they have is noted for as meeting place for older dudes and Russian skanks. Some of the gals I saw roaming the lobby were really good looking. Not 10, but hard 8s.

    Apparently the Mark hotel, which was one street corner away is worse, or better depending on your point of view.

    I kind of like the transaction in the sense that I respect what’s going on. The gals show no pretense they are there for money/sugar daddy types and the older dudes are there for … ummm. sex.

    It kind of disgusts me because older guys should leave the younger gals well alone. They missed their chance when they were young. Too bad. However, I still respected the transaction. 🙂

    I don’t know why people are surprised. Tim Wilson was one of the earliest, and most vocal, defenders of Ross Ward’s Safe Schools Program.

    Mr Wilson helped launched the Safe School Coalition, an anti-bullying campaign des­igned to raise awareness about the plight of gay, lesbian and transgender children.

    But he has since raised concerns with the Federal Government over some parts of the program and its age appropriateness.

    The Australian mania appears to be spreading.

    Apparently some restaurants in Isr-ael are banning citizens from working in their establishment who emigrated from the former Soviet Union or whose parents did, and of the Rab-binate penalizing restaurants who employ such people.

    It is suspected that these immigrants may not be Je-wish and are therefore regarded by some ultra Orthodox rab-bis to be ineligible to work in a kosher restaurant. A hearing in the Knesset’s Committee for Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Affairs was initiated by Knesset Members Ksenia Svetlova and Yoel Razvozov to discuss two recent incidents and the problem in general.

    Razvozov noted a complaint his office had received recently about a young woman who applied to be a waitress in a ko-sher restaurant in Carmiel, but was rejected by the restaurant which said that since her parents were immigrants from the former Soviet Union, the local rab-binate would object to her working there because of doubt over her Je-wish-ness.

    It was also pointed out that the behavior of the local rab-binates in Carmiel and Jerusalem demonstrated that they immediately suspect someone who immigrated from the former Soviet Union, or their children, as being non-Je-wish, which was described as a racist and discriminatory attitude by Svetlova, Razvozov and others.

    “Are Russian immigrants good enough to serve in the army but not good enough to be employed in restaurants in Carmiel and Jerusalem,” demanded Svetlova.

    Same could be said of Australia’s dual citizens who may fight for our country but cannot sit in parliament.

    Unable to ever be upfront and honest Memoryfult goes for the smear of Tim Wilson.

    Former human rights commissioner Tim Wilson voiced concerns about the Safe Schools Coalition with the government early last year ahead of the current review, but is still facing a vicious internal smear campaign over the issue as he fights for Liberal pre­selection.

    Mr Wilson has fallen victim to an attack for his stand on the controversial gender and sexuality program, marriage equality and same-sex adoption ahead of ­Saturday’s preselection ballot for the blue-ribbon Melbourne Liberal seat of Goldstein.

    The smear campaign has ­attempted to paint Mr Wilson as an overt supporter of the Safe Schools Coalition when the truth is he has privately advocated for reform.

    A letter purporting to be from a local community organisation lashing Mr Wilson, who is gay, has been posted to party members in the electorate. “Preselecting Tim will have a strong community backlash,” the letter reads. “Goldstein is a family electorate and needs a representative who shares constituents’ ­values.”

    But Education Minister Simon Birmingham said yesterday that Mr Wilson’s advocacy had led him to make changes to Safe Schools. “Prior to the current ­review commencing, Tim Wilson made clear to me his concerns ­regarding the conduct of the Safe Schools Coalition program, particularly the age appropriateness of some material,” Senator Birmingham told The Australian.

    “I understand that he had ­previously raised similar concerns to other people within the government.

    “His concerns were a factor in my decision to seek to enhance the voice of parents in the program. And Mr Wilson’s concerns are being considered as part of my response to Professor (Bill) Louden’s review, along with other considered concerns that have been raised.”

    Former parliamentary secretary for education Scott Ryan said Mr Wilson had raised his concerns about Safe Schools with him last year.

    Senior Liberals have reacted with fury to the attempt to derail Mr Wilson’s bid for the safe seat in the well-heeled bayside suburbs of Melbourne’s southeast.

    He is locked in a tight contest with international relations ­expert Denis Dragovic and lawyer Georgina Downer, who is the daughter of former foreign affairs minister Alexander Downer.

    The Safe Schools Coalition is a controversial sex and gender ­diversity program spawned out of La Trobe University, which has been rolled out to more than 500 schools nationwide.

    While billed as an anti-bullying program for same-sex attracted kids, it has been criticised for ­espousing radical and contested ideas about gender.

    Victorian party president Michael Kroger downplayed the campaign against Mr Wilson. “Tim Wilson is an outstanding Australian, everyone knows that. These sheets go around Liberal preselections and Labor preselections.

    “They do no real harm because our members, like the Labor members, are used to this stuff and they take very little notice of it,” Mr Kroger told Sky News Australia.

    “He’s up against a couple of really well credentialed candidates so I don’t want to give this any credibility by making any real comment about them except that everyone in the party knows Tim Wilson and he is incredibly highly thought of.”

    Referee, senator Cory Bernardi, restated his backing for Mr Wilson.

    “Politics should be about the battle of ideas, not anonymous smears,” he said.

    Another day another smear or conspiracy theory. The wanker.

    The company one keeps…

    Salim Mehajer’s right hand man — and the face of his new wedding planning company — has been arrested over the execution-style murder of Sydney underworld figure Kemel Barakat earlier this year.

    Ahmed Jaghbir, 28, was arrested this morning at his Guildford home as police simultaneously raided that property and the nearby Frances Street Lidcombe mansion owned by Mr Mehajer, the embattled property developer and former deputy mayor of Auburn in Sydney’s west.

    Ahmed Jaghbir, pictured with Salim Mehajer, has arrested in connection with the murder of Kemel Barakat. Picture: Supplied.
    Ahmed Jaghbir, pictured with Salim Mehajer, has arrested in connection with the murder of Kemel Barakat. Picture: Supplied.
    Mr Jaghbir is the sole director of Mehajer Wedding & Event Planning — created in September — and a director of Mr Mehajer’s building strata management companies Oncall Strata Services and Skypoint Strata Services.

    Mr Mehajer is the 100 per cent owner of Mehajer Wedding & Event Planning but he is not permitted to hold the position of “director” because he has been banned from managing corporations for three years.

    Last month Mr Mehajer posted to social media that the wedding planning company, his “new business”, was “now finally up and running”.

    Mr Mehajer’s own 2015 wedding, which drew attention for its conspicuous opulence and included four helicopters, a jet flyover, scores of motorcycles and around $50 million worth of supercars, drew the media spotlight to his business and property development activities.

    Spruiking his new wedding business, he wrote that his company “will work with your budget”.

    “We will…beat any prices to make your next event or ceremony memorable,” he wrote.

    The posts were subsequently removed from social media after questions were raised regarding Mr Mehajer’s legal ability to manage companies.

    JC pointing out somebody else’s smear is a bit rich considering only last night he was doing some pretty serious smearing himself. However in JC’s world of high finance it might be normal behaviour to accuse people of burning people alive. Naturally as always he failed to produce any evidence to support his outrageous comments. In fact he is the smearer in chief.

    What I found interesting is that when MV and Brian of Moorobin had some serious issues they both blamed JC. Easy to see why with the way he behaves here. JC is the reason why everybody should be careful what they post about themselves on here. Sad but true. Nobody holds a grudge or brings it up constantly quite like JC.

    I am guessing some issues at work or in the family for dear old JC, which is why he is bringing his negativity here.

    I thought he was doing quite well after his rehab but looks like he is back to his old ways.

    Viva – Of course they can sit in Parliament. They just have to renounce their foreign citizenship before the election in which they are elected. That is not that much different from the rule that government employees cannot stand in elections, or the rule which caught out Bob Day (having an agreement with the APS).

    A very few may have issues with the foreign country not allowing formal renunciation of citizenship. I suspect the HC would take a stat dec renunciation in that case, but it would have to be tested.

    Dont be silly, they are using wood pellets!

    http://www.businessinsider.com/europe-imports-wood-biomass-from-us-for-power-2015-12/?r=AU&IR=T

    Europe imported more than 4 million tons of wood pellets from US forests last year and wrote it all off as renewable energy.

    A new report from Climate Central exposes how 4.4 million tons of wood pellets were cut from American forests last year, and 98% of it was shipped to Europe to be burnt for energy.

    Because of a loophole, the European Union classifies this wood-generated electricity as “carbon neutral,” though research actually indicates it’s more environmentally dangerous in the short term.

    We should rebrand coal as “concentrated wood pellets” and make a mint!

    No, they are not. The only thing that is “sort-of-equivalent” to a Stat Dec is a Stat Dec.

    And they should all be made to sign one before Xmas, and anyone nominating for election should be made to sign one henceforth.

    Why this seems hard for Waffleworth to grasp as an idea is beyond me. Even on the assumption that both sides have their share of furriners, it is surely more sensible to take the medicine in one gulp.

However in JC’s world of high finance it might be normal behaviour to accuse people of burning people alive. Naturally as always he failed to produce any evidence to support his outrageous comments. In fact he is the smearer in chief.

    What I found interesting is that when MV and Brian of Moorobin had some serious issues they both blamed JC. Easy to see why with the way he behaves here. JC is the reason why everybody should be careful what they post about themselves on here. Sad but true. Nobody holds a grudge or brings it up constantly quite like JC.

    I am guessing some issues at work or in the family for dear old JC, which is why he is bringing his negativity here.

  159. Off to get some vodka in preparation for this evening’s inevitable stoush!

    Sorry to disappoint you, Fisky, but there will be no stoush tonight. The incident involving attempting to create an association between me and certain criminal elements**, and the adverse outcome on me and my family, has been festering in me for months. Last night I got it all off my chest, and as far as I am concerned, it is done.

    Tonight, if I am going to get involved in any discussion at all, in between re-watching Midsomer Murders, it will be regarding our budding constitutional crisis, and the possible ramifications.

    If something seems strange to you, the first assumption of a rational human being is ‘it’s probably because I don’t know all the facts – if I did, it’d likely be a lot less unusual’.

    But when something strikes other types of people as being strange, their first assumption is malevolent conspiracy and they worm backwards from there in an effort to prove this assumption.

    No of course not. Europeans and Muslims don’t appear to be compatible and never have. We don’t like each other and separation appears to be the optimum option.

    But having said that, you really should tone down your mania against these people… all 1.3 billion of them.

    Police are on the lookout for Blake Levi, 27, who has escaped from a prison on the NSW north coast.

    Levi was last seen at the minimum-security Glen Innes Correctional Centre about 2:45pm on Tuesday.

    Guards noticed him missing after 5:00pm and could not find him during the ensuing search of the facility and surrounding grounds.

    “Blake Levi is described as being of Aboriginal/Torres Strait Islander appearance, about 170cm tall with a medium build, and short brown hair,” a police spokesperson said.

    “It is unknown what he was wearing at the time.”

    Police warned members of the public not to approach Levi and to instead call triple-0.
