    Stop trying to turn this place into the Australian version of Der Stürmer, Stormfr*nt or whatever its called. It’s embarrassing.

    As for your other accusation that I’m a Tim Flannery…. Don’t people laugh, you fake newser.

    Anna (Wintour) is a keen Democrat supporter. She fundraised for both Barack  Obama and Hillary Clinton, with Vogue even taking the unprecedented step of officially endorsing Clinton to become America’s first female president.  At one stage, there were even rumours that Wintour’s support would be rewarded with a plum ambassasor role.

    Little wonder she is fully simpatico with rabid anti Trumper, Meryl Streep.

    Multiple minority box ticker and elitist Deborah Cheetham – Indigenous, Lesbian, Artist – on The Dumb last night complaining that ordinary people were given a say on ss”m”.

    “They have no qualifications to judge us.”

    But they weren’t judging you, precious dear. They were given the opportunity to express their opinion on a momentous change to the public institution of marriage. As the government advised, this was only about marriage.

    Most “ordinary people” – those who don’t go about their ethnicity, sexuality or occupation makes them special – couldn’t give two hoots about your life.

    2GB Melbourne protesters being watched by Victoria police.

  6. If the driver was a white non-Muslim, the media going after them and their family, retaliation, social media berserk with theories, it would be horrendous.
    We are spared that.

    Only in the sense that it is not being reported, Candy. As a result of threats received, the driver and her children have been moved out of their home, to a secret location. So it’s pretty safe to assume there’s a lot of anger out there, and it’s not coming from the “white anglo” community.

    My kid has a friend who works at Vogue US. The story is that Wintour is much worse than the movie suggested. An absolute horror of a woman.

    At the address where Al-Shennag is in hiding, a member of her family told Daily Mail Australia she was ‘sorry’, but not ready to talk about the shocking incident.
    ‘No comment thanks… she’s deeply sorry, but doesn’t want to talk about it,’ a relative said.

    Probably just while they negotiate the amount of the diya is worked out

    Diya (Arabic: دية , plural diyāt) in Islamic law, is the financial compensation paid to the victim or heirs of a victim in the cases of murder, bodily harm or property damage. It is an alternative punishment to qisas (equal retaliation). In Arabic, the word means both blood money and ransom, and it is spelled

    Snoopy see 8.24.

    It’s secret knowledge, if only he was free to speak.

    He’s just bursting with it, has been for years, but it’s too something.

    There used to be hints about the global elite but after mockage when he linked that Fiona Barnett site and supported the veracity of Anne link about the baby sacrificing Dutch man he’s realised that the cat may not be ready for the Truthing.

    Best guess

    Either that or https://goo.gl/images/U5wQoE it really is

    The Barnetts like the Eriksons of the world exist to contaminate truth with shit.

    It’s why Dot’s guilty pleasure, David Icke, exists. Draw in every whistle blower on every evil being practiced, and instantly discredit them by association with that scamming creep … or so it was, until creatures like you and Dot overdid that, ‘lizard people’, schick 🙄 as a response to things you can’t argue.

    It doesn’t make the truth less so, but rather, important enough for the really very bad people to employ agents to blow cover smoke.

    It’s the doctors and judges not getting the attention they should, because people like you exist to point at the smoke and not the monsters it hides.

    Oh, and Julian Assange’s experiences (during his Australian childhood), with “The Family”; though it does get raised occasionally, watch the cover agents break out in their hissy fits of pathetic libels, slanders, smears and slurs when you take that conversation back to the Doctors, Nurses, Doctors Wives and other “Respected” Professionals of Kew and beyond, who simply worked out some of the bugs for pushing their ways onto a sane public, and who’s acolytes went ahead in leaps bounds from then.

    It’s no accident that when it comes to evils like FGM, “sex changes” and taking away parents right and duty to protect their children evil fucking doctors, even CL has to rage against the AMA.

    But, thank God, there is a new system of things ……………. 🙂

    As for your other accusation that I’m a Tim Flannery…. Don’t people laugh, you fake newser.

    Good morning JC; I have decided you are interesting; all emotional responses will be treated with the utmost respect. Let’s delve: are you in fact denying you are flannery?

  13. calli

    Asked by Wintour what she talks to her daughters about at the dining table, Streep said: “Harvey Weinstein, it’s all we talk about. It’s horrible”.

    Indeed. What a horrible household.

  14. JC

    You know, I’m starting to disbelieve a lot of this stuff. Not all, but a good slab of it.
    In the last few weeks all these dudes are being accused of suddenly breaking out into mast*urbatory spasms. Come on. (No pun intended)

    Five Women Accuse Louis C.K. Of Furious And Unsolicited Mast*urbation

    “He proceeded to take all of his clothes off, and get completely naked, and started mast*urbating.”

    Comedian Louis C.K. – whose film premiere was just canceled, along with an appearance on Colbert, has been accused of mast*urbating in front of, and over the phone, with five women over the span of several years, according to a report in the New York Times.

    As soon as they sat down in his room, still wrapped in their winter jackets and hats, Louis C.K. asked if he could take out his penis, the women said.

    They thought it was a joke and laughed it off. “And then he really did it,” Ms. Goodman said in an interview with The New York Times.

  15. notafan

    Two years later, Mr Rashid is again concerned about his future. His travel permit and identity document have not been renewed by PNG authorities since they expired in January. This means he cannot travel to see his mother in Yangon.

    Yet apparently, while unable to find the funds for a visa Mr Rashid can afford to travel to Yangon to see his mother, the place from which by the way he fled as a desperate refugee.

    Couldn’t unlie for one lousy interview

  16. Geriatric Mayfly

    Asked by Wintour what she talks to her daughters about at the dining table, Streep said: “Harvey Weinstein, it’s all we talk about. It’s horrible”.

    Wondering which charateristic of Weinstein has the highest profile at the dining table.

    If shorten can topple turnbull right now and go to an election before labor can bait and switch him for a wymynsys, the worst of world’s lands on our doorstep.

    No coming back from shorten, and we all know turnbull prefers a shorten government to turnbullites being replaced by a Tory winner.

  18. To answer the Cat questioner who asked if Bolt and Paul Murray would support Shaghai Sam in his hour of need – yes, both were effusive yesterday in their condemnation of the “far right aggressors”. So were the panels they appeared with.

    Hanson seems to have tapped into the nation-wide vibe more accurately though:
    Pipsqueak.
    Smartarse.
    Just getting publicity for his book.
    Mr. Bean

    But the most telling comment from Hanson was “he is a big boy who could stand up for himself“. There’s a mountain of multiple meanings in there.

  19. Joe

    No coming back from shorten, and we all know turnbull prefers a shorten government to turnbullites being replaced by a Tory winner.

    No coming back from Turnbull. So what’s the difference?

  20. notafan

    Does anyone believe the father of Jihad would have forgiven the driver if she was Betty Jones, Anglophone mum of three?

    Hell no

    I am also willing to bet the entire muslim community linked to Banksia primary is currently in talks with lawyers about how to best monetize this tragedy with a class action against the education department for not having an armed guard at the entrance to the staff carpark and not providing car proof classrooms etc.

  21. JC

    You know how the Left is destroying statues of “old white guys”. We’ve get the first indications of what coming up next.

    Former DC mayor Marion Barry, who died in 2014 at the age of 78, is set to be memorialized with an 8-foot statue.

    In a Tuesday meeting, the DC Council Committee of the While voted unanimously that add the statue to the late mayor in front of the Wilson building.

    Barry was notoriously busted on video in January, 1990 smoking crack cocaine with a hooker, though he always maintained his innocence – claiming a racist conspiracy and that “the bitch set me up.”

    He was arrested by the FBI on drug charges and ended up serving six months in federal prison.

    The statue will be inscribed with

    The bitch set me up

    just below his name.

  22. Delta A

    So it’s pretty safe to assume there’s a lot of anger out there, and it’s not coming from the “white anglo” community.

    But neither is it being directed against the ‘white Anglo’ community: I think that was Candy’s point.

  23. Mark A

    Louis C.K.

    Googled him, nope, doesn’t ring a bell.
    God, I’m an ignorant basket in some ways.
    But why would any normal person do that? Or do I smell a rat?
    Woman scorned an all.

  24. Alright, given that USSR is the Cat’s self-appointed holy warrior with a special interest in prosecuting the case against rock spiders and their enablers as agents of The Great Satan himself, I’d be interested to hear his thoughts on this story.

    Leigh Corfman says she was 14 years old when an older man approached her outside a courtroom in Etowah County, Ala. She was sitting on a wooden bench with her mother, they both recall, when the man introduced himself as Roy Moore.

    Moore is the Republican candidate for Senator in the current special election for Alabama. The GOP have already started rallying around him, e.g. this quote from the Alabama state auditor:

    “Take the Bible. Zachariah and Elizabeth for instance. Zachariah was extremely old to marry Elizabeth and they became the parents of John the Baptist,” Ziegler said choosing his words carefully before invoking Christ. “Also take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus.”

    Is this true? Is this bloke hinting that Joseph was a rock spider? Outrageous.

    So who’s the agent of Satan in this one, USSR?

  25. Snoopy

    Yes, they’re all liars, but nevertheless the government has to wrap the camps up somehow if only for the sakes of Nauru and PNG. And no, back-dooring the pricks through NZ is not an acceptable solution. So shove your offer up your Stalinist arse, Jacinda.

  26. JC

    I remember the FBI vid of Barry getting nabbed in a hotel room repeating

    .. the bitch set me up.

  27. Rebel with cause

    Tried to watch the Louis CK Netflix special to see what the big deal was and it started with an awkward “joke” about abortion. Couldn’t find any laughs and I was trying. Don’t know if it got better after that as stopped watching.

    Probably would have found it more interesting if he had started fondling himself to be honest. Maybe that is the funny part of his act?

  28. notafan

    But neither is it being directed against the ‘white Anglo’ community: I think that was Candy’s point.

    Not at their fellow parents directly perhaps but at the school, the teachers, the principal, well yes they have and they have said so

    Why else is the father of Jihad Dawiche be saying the following?

    They appeal to the Muslim community for “patience” and ask for there to be “no retaliation” against Banksia Road Public School where the accident occurred on Tuesday.

    Insofar as Banksia Road is an integral part of the Angloshpere it is clear that there have been threats of retribution against the ‘white Anglo community’ and in the context of responsibility for the accident, that is patently absurb, to non muslims, anyhow.

  29. But neither is it being directed against the ‘white Anglo’ community:
    I think that was Candy’s point.

    I never said it was. Candy’s post implied there was no anger per se. My point was that there is a hell of a lot anger, but it’s not being directed at “whites”. More to the point, it’s not being reported to any great extent. This tells us it is very much a Muslim versus Muslim affair.

  30. Roger

    They appeal to the Muslim community for “patience” and ask for there to be “no retaliation” against Banksia Road Public School where the accident occurred on Tuesday.

    Middle aged Muslim woman in two tonne vehicle allegedly illegally drives into school grounds, is distracted by phone or water bottle and drives the vehicle into a class room leading to two children dead deaths and several injured yet somehow the school is responsible?

    What sort of irrational people are we dealing with here?

    Nevertheless, henceforth such school entries will be installed with electronic security keyed gates and bollards will be installed around vulnerable classrooms at great expense to the tax payer.

  31. calli

    They appeal to the Muslim community for “patience” and ask for there to be “no retaliation” against Banksia Road Public School where the accident occurred on Tuesday.

    And what form of “retaliation” against a completely innocent entity is envisaged, pray tell? Burning? Bombing? Mean words to the teachers?

    Barbarians.

    Five Women Accuse Louis C.K. Of Furious And Unsolicited Mast*urbation

    There were accusations made against him several years ago, so in his case I’m inclined to believe it. His TV show about himself sure seemed pretty onanistic, of the little I bothered watching of it.

  33. H B Bear

    From the disgusting woman who gave a standing ovation to Roman Polanski:

    Perhaps someone should drug and anally rape Streep’s daughters so she can experience these feelings rather than the constant pretending and virtue signalling?

  34. JC

    Yea Andreas, I read some more about him and it appears it be true.

    I can’t understand the accusations about all these morons basically fronting up to female acquaintances, getting their old fellas out and begin [email protected] in front of them.

    Is this becoming a new courtship ritual or something?

    This is a strange century we’re living in.

    Once you see everything as Allah’s will and you are deprived of self-determination for your actions all bets are off.

    You and your secret secret secrets. You’ve been oh so subtlely hinting about those for years.

    Srr can field strip and reassemble an AK 47?

    Snoopy, notafan & Co. are dangerous doxxers.

    They constantly push that, “prove it or you’re a liar!“, crap on people, in between fishing for other little personal details.

    They’re easy enough to spot. They hang back until some verboten observation is posted and then rush in to to attack the poster with ad homs. as a way to both kill discussion of the forbidden subject and try to force the poster to provide so real world evidence of themselves in defence of the legitimacy of the seriousness of the subject raised.

    Like for instance, the subject of traitorous fucking domestic terrorists turning cars into bombs much more often than the news dare report. It happens all over the place, not just Canberra, and when they’re too noticeable to be ignored by at least the local news, they’re played down as everything from, ‘an electrical fault’, ‘poor maintenance’, ‘joy riding young car thieves’ to ‘suicidal alphabet people’.

    They particular target people who make accurate predictions against the common consensus; you know, like those of us who recognised something in Trump and how he does things, that caused us to not be at all surprised by the endless string of “impossible” good things he’s done.

    Remember, like Fisky, most here were and remain Anti-Trumpers, who are just playing it safe while they hope that they can soon celebrate his take down … all still blissfully in denial of the fact that Trump is only one man, amongst the many around the world who have worked hard and very well at getting good and just things done, for a humanity saving change. 🙂

  42. thefrolickingmole

    Im asking for the cat collective brain to assist trying to find the name of a TV show I saw which would be well worth a rewatch in light of the Weinstein accusations.

    It was an undercover type show where a bloke pretended to be a wealthy douche trawling fashion shows for models to sleep with.
    He joined up with a mob of professional douches who basically used money and drugs to get (often underage) models ripped then root them.

    Showed an incredibly sleazy underbelly of the fashion mobs who were well aware of the serial predators and did nothing about it. Was on SBS I think, maybe 4-5 years ago.

    Real article headline at the gruinaid…

    I’m not saying Trump’s election killed my mother. It just feels as if it did
    Christina Patterson

    In her diary, on 9 November last year, my mother used capital letters for the first time. “DONALD TRUMP WON!” she wrote. When I next spoke to her, she was in a hospital bed. She had, she said, been in such a state of shock that she had lost her balance and tripped on the last stair. It was hours before she could crawl to the phone and call an ambulance. She had, it turned out, smashed her left hip. The next few weeks were terrible. My diary entry for 14 December is brief: “Mum died.”

  48. Joe

    You get so hot and steamy, USSR.

    And you JC prove SRR’s point so eloquently.

  49. JC

    Here we go, the Liars Party rats begin to squirm up from under the floor. Slowly of course.

    A federal Labor MP has admitted she waited three months before following the advice of party officials and renouncing her British citizenship.

    “I delayed it — it’s one of those things with the citizenship I knew I could never get it back,” Tasmanian backbencher Justine Keay told her local newspaper the Burnie Advocate on Friday.

    Ms Keay, who was a British citizen at the time of the 2016 election, is one of four MPs the government may refer to the High Court if it can’t reach bipartisan agreement with Labor on a new disclosure scheme for MPs.

    The MP said renouncing her UK citizenship was the last tangible connection with her father.

    “If I didn’t get elected I can’t get my citizenship back and for me, it was a very personal thing.” Ms Keay insisted she had done everything possible to abide by the constitution which prohibits a citizen of a foreign power taking a seat in parliament. She acknowledged the only way to determine her eligibility was to have it tested in the High Court.

    Yep, too many well intentioned Westerners still tie themselves in knots trying to deny that Muslim women have to produce large numbers of children for all sorts of roles in their Jihad against Non-perfect-enough-Muslims – remember the mother who cried because she ran out of children to martyr, and the mother who beat her very young son to death for not memorising the Koran well enough, and –

    Absolutely, I seem to recall photographers and agents involved as well.
    The whole setup was to drag in girls, use them as cocksleeves and spit them out again by monied up Eurotrash types.

    Right USSR, so the reported fact that your man Roy Moore is a rock spider is the fault of Soros, commies and the Pope. Good one.

    I suppose you will have to wait for your man Milo’s take before you know what to say. I mean, it’s not as if he has also openly supported adult men having relationships with minors.

    There will be something similar in Chrome, but I’m not familiar with it.

    Try to be brief. A Sydney lad joined us on the Kilimanjaro climb, who had just made it. His bus had broken down on the road up from Dar. Bus jacked up, blokes underneath. Truck comes ’round the corner, knocks bus off its props, three killed and others injured. Passengers all nonchalant under a shady tree – as he tried to apply his limited knowledge of First Aid. The will of Allah had prevailed. Police eventually arrive, and in rummaging through the deceased for ID a huge wad of $US emerges. A pushing, jostling, jabbering crowd immediately gathered, despite the heat of the sun. Allah’s beneficence works in mysterious ways.

  61. srr

    btw, that video of the vile Muslim trying to get the little kid killed – remember, these scum do use children as walking bombs, and know Western soldiers are well aware of that.

  62. JC

    Insulting personal attacks DO NOT MAKE A LOGICAL ARGUMENT.

    Then kindly explain that to the Kremlin troll, who’s always making pejorative remarks about people and their associations.

    You do, if you make a rash, ill thought out comment like the one above.

    I’m merely pointing out that your emotive and frankly insulting behaviour brings nothing to the conversation.

    USSR insults anyone who doesn’t agree with her. Tell that insane troll to stop it and I’m sure everyone will ignore the manic comments she posts every 3.23 seconds 24/7.

    Here’s a hint; if you don’t like what srr is saying, pass it by and please keep your emotional rantings to yourself.

    How about you ask USSR to stop first instead of asking me or others who generally ignore the Kremlin troll most of the time. While you’re at, go fuck yourself.

    BREAKING**- HOLY SMOKE:
    Trump Thinks Scientology Should Have Tax Exemption Revoked, Longtime Aide Says

    President Donald Trump believes the Church of Scientology should have its tax exemption revoked, a longtime family aide and current top official at the Department of Housing and Urban Development told an actress and producer in May.

    In an unsolicited Twitter message, Lynne Patton, who has worked for the Trump family since 2009, told actress Leah Remini of Trump’s position and said she would interface with the IRS directly to seek more information in an effort to initiate revocation. Remini sent HuffPost copies of Patton’s messages and has declined to comment further.

    It’s not clear if Patton ever communicated with the IRS. But if Trump did express an opinion on the church and Patton did contact the IRS about it, as her message suggests, that would be a highly inappropriate level of interference with the IRS by the administration, one expert said.

    “For the White House or any administration official to try and influence who the IRS targets, for whatever reason, is wrong and could result in a violation of the law,” said Larry Noble, the former general counsel of the Federal Election Commission who is now a senior director of ethics and general counsel at the Campaign Legal Center. “The IRS must make these decisions independently without any influence by the White House or administration officials.”

    I mean, it’s not as if he has also openly supported adult men having relationships with minors.

    I read what Milo divulged about that. He was used by gay men as a minor himself, and I think it’s confused him, as bright as he is, about the issue of older gay man, young boy. A murky kind of scene he tried to explain. I wonder if he knows himself to have been abused by an older man or came to believe it’s normal?

    Marissa Mayer blamed the Russians in her apology for the Yahoo data breach
    that affected 3 million accounts

    Former Yahoo Chief Executive Marissa Mayer apologized for the data breach that affected all of Yahoo’s 3 billion accounts in 2013.

    Mayer blamed the breach on Russian agents who compromised Yahoo’s network and stole users’ data.

    Verizon, the largest U.S. wireless operator, acquired most of Yahoo’s assets in June, the same month Mayer stepped down. Verizon disclosed last month that a 2013 Yahoo data breach affected all 3 billion of its accounts, compared with an estimate of more than 1 billion disclosed in December.

    A federal Labor MP has admitted she waited three months before following the advice of party officials and renouncing her British citizenship.

    “I delayed it — it’s one of those things with the citizenship I knew I could never get it back,” Tasmanian backbencher Justine Keay told her local newspaper the Burnie Advocate on Friday.

    And there is the crux of the problem.
    These arseholes are too smart by half, trying to keep dual citizenship up their sleeve with one eye on retiring to Tuscany or the UK sometime in the future.
    The answer needs to be framed as follows …
    (1) Candidates must irrevocably and absolutely repudiate any citizenship (or latent rights to citizenship ) of a foreign power;
    (2) If elected, candidates sign an undertaking that, should they attain or seek citizenship of a foreign power at any time in the future, any payments, pensions or other allowances arising from their time as an MP/Senator shall cease;
    (3) An amount of 25% of AEC party electoral funding shall be held in escrow for ten years and forfeited should any false declarations be discovered later. In the case of independents, any subsequent discovery of a fakse declaration shall carry a fine of $100,000, recoverable in the first instance by forfeiture of Parliamentary superannuation/benefits.

    This sentence proves intent.

    I delayed it.
    In other words she knew (as they all do) that she had to do it.

    She purposefully broke the law.

    Then , as they all didn’t give a shit until this came up, the party said, hey you better fix it up now.

    This is precisely why we must have a rigorous and thorough investigation.

    Whether you agree with the law or not, anyone who broke this law did it knowingly by not declaring they have or have tried to give up, rescind not only duel citizenship before standing, but any allegiance to any foreign power.

    You let them off lightly if you nlet them get away with it being a duel citizenship only issue.
    The constitution is much more specific and in it means NO FOREIGN POWER ALLEGIANCE or even ADHERENCE.
    Adhering to the UN , a power with it’s own flag, forces and president, and nobody in it elected to it by ordinary citizens and voters in any nation, but especially ours, means adherence could be found very easily.
    A treaty is not all our politicians are doing there.

    Roy Moore is the GOP candidate for the US Senate, where the Republicans hold a two-seat majority. If they lose that seat as some polls suggest is possible, any slim hopes of Trump getting lasting legislation passed get a lot harder. So it’s kind of a big deal that the candidate has been credibly accused of being a rock spider.

    The Milo story has not been debunked, he made those comments openly. And he doubled down on the same theme at his one and only Daily Caller piece where he defended Kevin Spacey. Milo is a scumbag, nota.

    I’m as disgusted as you are by Kevin Spacey’s transparent attempt to cloak himself in gay privilege as a way of distracting us from allegations he tried to fuck a child. This is why identity politics is so poisonous: it seeks to establish separate rules for separate groups based on perceived, or more often simply imaginary, victimhood. Gay people should be held to the same standards as everyone else

    But not until the Spacey affair did we have such a persuasive case against identity politics outside of race. Put him in the chair, as far as I’m concerned. But let’s not forget what a blow this is to the identitarians of the Left.

    A few years ago I head Anthony Albanese on talk back radio. A caller accused Albanese of being a dual citizen. I recall Albanese refusing to refute the cl;aim, but rather saying that he was born and raised in Camperdown, Sydney and otherwise wouldn’t dignify the question with a response.

    Wikipedia has the following interesting information about Albanese’s early life:

    Albanese was born in the inner Sydney suburb of Camperdown, the son of Carlo Albanese and Maryanne Ellery. His mother was of Irish descent, while his father was from Barletta, Italy. His parents met on a cruise ship, but did not pursue a relationship and went their separate ways. Growing up, Albanese was told that his father had died in a car accident. He did not learn the truth until he was a teenager. He did not meet his father until 2009, tracking him down with the assistance of the Australian embassy in Italy. He subsequently discovered that he had two half-siblings.

    Wikipedia says that Italian citizenship can be acquired by:

    By birth to an Italian parent in line with the principle of jus sanguinis. jus sanguis means by blood right.

    So clearly Mr Albanese is entitled to dual citizenship, and he should have been aware of this from 2009 onwards. Has Mr Albanese revoked his Italian citizneship? Or was he the original Dual Citizen Deputy Prime Minister?

    Those baddies are pretty easy to spot, in that they have a habit of demanding that breaking news not be discussed and speculated about, while they themselves will make early calls as to what we are to believe is the whole truth of the situation.

    And the reason they want you signed on early, is that simple human nature makes people reluctant to change their minds about things they’ve publicly committed to, so beware all those, “Yes or No?!”, “Answer!”, “Go!”, people.

    But also remember that God uses everyone for His ultimate good purpose, so if it turns out that those you have the greatest trust and faith in do turn out to be devils … well, there’s a good Godly reason The First Commandment is First.

    The idea is to stall admitting dual cits hoping to run out the clock and an election I forced on the Libs.

Just the regular lies you get from these scumbags.

    Turnbull was late in turning this around and going after those dishonest sacks of shit… but to be honest.. these guys are under siege from every single institution in the country.

    “Stan and Roadshow Productions today instructed law firm Gilbert & Tobin to take appropriate legal action in relation to the infringement of the Patriot Blue trademark, and use of the Stan name on Facebook.” The companies were damning of the attack, but said it highlighted some of the concerning real life issues that would be reflected in the series. “Romper Stomper is a story that reflects contemporary issues from multiple view points and focuses on the alienated and fractured members of modern society,” they said. “The incident with Senator Dastyari highlights that this is the right time to have an important national conversation about these issues, in a respectful and constructive way.”

    Why do I get the feeling that Stan and Roadshow Productions think this is a great way of getting free publicity and highlighting the relevance of their new series? On the issue of whether Dastardly was involved in planning the incident, I’ll take the fifth. The timing seems very, very convenient.

    Wikipedia says that Italian citizenship can be acquired by:

    By birth to an Italian parent in line with the principle of jus sanguinis. jus sanguis means by blood right.

    So clearly Mr Albanese is entitled to dual citizenship, and he should have been aware of this from 2009 onwards. Has Mr Albanese revoked his Italian citizneship? Or was he the original Dual Citizen Deputy Prime Minister?

    Great work.
    Even if it’s a dud outcome, you put in the effort, and I thank you.

    Sounds like an opinion to me.

    That muslims are threatening to retaliate against the school is a fact, if the father is to be believed.

    Forget her. It was an honest mistake. It could have happened to any one of us.

    “This was an accident. The lady has four children of her own at school. Nothing could have changed anything that day.

    Which frames the ‘accident’ as an immovable object rather than the negligence of the driver.

    Islamic thinking is somewhat contradictory in that, at the same time as claiming something to be the will of allah, muslim culture requires the payment of Diya, or blood money.

    If the father truly forgives the driver then good for him, but he is not saying she did the wrong thing and I forgive her, he is absolving her of responsibility by saying she is a mere instrument and it was a mere accident.

    If you want to think it is somehow parallel to the Chrisian concept of forgiveness as in forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us, then go right ahead.

    I don’t agree.

    Grattan on Friday: Voters just want this citizenship crisis fixed — but it isn’t that easy, By Michelle Grattan.

    The citizenship crisis is politics at its worst, has been unresolved far too long, and is a distraction from much more important issues. That’s the view from the real world, reflected by voters in focus groups this week.

    Okay, so according to Grattan, that’s the real world view. And this view is reflected by voters in focus groups. Let’s check the details.

    As Malcolm Turnbull and Bill Shorten play politics over a disclosure motion to be put to Parliament, these ordinary people are baffled and impatient with the whole affair. While the four groups of “soft” voters (two each in Brisbane and Townsville) were part of a Queensland election study for the Institute for Governance’s research at the University of Canberra, the dual citizenship imbroglio was raised unprompted and the comments give an insight into ordinary Australians’ thinking about the fiasco engulfing the Parliament in general and the Turnbull Government in particular.

    Apparently, the “real world” consists of about 20 voters each in Brisbane and Townsville; voters who are “soft” (whatever that means) and have the time (and inclination) to take part in focus group; if, by chance, they are selected. And the focus groups were actually being run for some other purpose but, supposedly, the citizenship issue was “raised unprompted”.

    Now if you read the piece you will see much the same range of views expressed as I have read here* but the real issue is what percentage of voters favour the different views. Without that, there is really nothing to write about.

    * The words “lamp-post” and “rope” were apparently not used.

    One day an eagle alighted upon an old woman’s balcony. “Oh my! What a funny looking pigeon you are!” the woman said in astonishment.

    The eagle protested, telling her it wasn’t a pigeon at all — let alone a funny looking pigeon. But the old woman wouldn’t be swayed. “Nonsense,” she said. “I know a pigeon when I see one. Your beak is just a little bent, your claws are too long, and the feathers on your head are too messy. But we’ll fix that!”

    She grabbed the eagle, took it inside, and clipped its claws, combed its feathers, and straightened its beak.

    “There, now you look more like a pigeon,” the woman said, smiling ear-to-ear. “That’s so much better!”

    It would take me years to forgive someone for killing my child. That the Muslim parents forgive so readily is striking but it must help with grief, the way they do it.

    Tectonic Shifts – The Saudi Alliance Strategy Continues…
    Posted on November 9, 2017 by sundance

    If you haven’t followed the entirety of how the “Freedom Alliance” was assembled in the very early months shortly after the election of President Donald Trump, it’s hard to understand the scope of what is taking place in the middle-east.

    The nations of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), led by Saudi Arabia, are on the cusp of transforming themselves into a modern and engaged era. The goals of the GCC allies, led by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS) are to remove the influence agents who have supported extremism, the Muslim Brotherhood, and stimulated and/or enabled crisis for personal and ideological gains.

    Because of the financial reach within the parties involved, the downstream consequences are being felt within the political bodies of most nations including our own. Specifically within Washington DC’s deep-state institutions, career politicians on foreign affairs committees, and within the upper and lower tiers of the aggregate U.S. State Dept. A great realignment is taking place.

    French President Emmanuel Macron said today he will make an unexpected trip to Saudi Arabia after leaving the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to see Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and discuss crises in Lebanon, Yemen and the wider region. This happens simultaneous to the UAE announcing they too are examining bank accounts for their own officials, officers and leaders within their nation.

    DUBAI (Reuters) – French President Emmanuel Macron is making a previously unscheduled trip to Saudi Arabia on Thursday to see Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman amid rising tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran, notably over Lebanon and Yemen.

    PAYBACK: Crony Obama Judge Gets Booted from Fusion GPS Case After True Pundit Exposed Blatant Conflicts of Interest

    For several weeks True Pundit has hammered U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan including her blatant conflicts of interest in the Fusion GPS case.

    On Thursday the United States District Court for the District of Columbia re-assigned the Fusion GPS bank record case to a new federal judge, removing Chutkan from making any additional decisions on the case. This is highly unusual move but in this case quite necessary.

    Chutkan was presiding over a case that could implicate Barack Obama. She donated campaign cash to Obama. After his election, he appointed both her and her husband as judges. Other Chutkan family members also contributed to Obama’s political coffers.

    The mere fact that Fusion GPS’ bank records could implicate Hillary Clinton and her former boss Obama is reason enough to believe Chutkan would opt on the side of The Swamp, in an effort to further protect Obama and his cartel which at this point may or may not include the federal judge who should have recused herself from the case.

    Just days ago the Obama crony helped Fusion GPS seal their financial records to keep its clients secret, after Congress subpoenaed the financial records.

    Chutkan has a history of not recusing herself from cases with a direct and personal conflict so why would she stop now. She presided over a Homeland Security case without notifying the court or plaintiff’s attorneys she had a close family relative who works for DHS.

    Judges may not preside over cases in which they have a direct personal bias or financial interest concerning a party to the case, according to federal law.

    But Chutkan is the D.C. District Court’s poster girl for conflicts.

    No one else in the media seemed to care very much about that fact, which is telling in itself.

    One of the True Pundit stories — published Oct. 29th entitled CRONY: Obama-Appointed Judge Seals Fusion GPS Bank Records; Ruling Insulates Obama, Clinton, FBI — went viral.

    So True Pundit is taking partial credit here for the unorthodox and court-mandated recusal. Simply because this story was ignored by the media.

    The Fusion GPS case has been re-assigned to Richard J. Leon, a Senior District Judge for the District of Columbia. Leon was not appointed by Obama.

    Chutkan is presiding also over the Imran Awan and Hina Alvi bank fraud case in D.C. Chutkan made headlines when it was reported she was appointed to the federal bench by Obama after she kicked thousands in campaign donations to his presidential campaign.

    Obama also appointed Chutkan’s husband, Peter Krauthamer, a judge to the bench in the District of Columbia Superior Court in 2011.

    Chutkan was born in Jamaica. She lived in Jamaica, the Bahamas, France and Spain before coming to the United States, federal law enforcement sources said.

    Chutkan’s former law firm, where she worked until her appointment to the federal bench in 2014, currently represents Huma Abedin, the wife of disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner. The firm also is stacked with Democratic lawyers who worked for Hillary Clinton, John Podesta, and Barack Obama’s White House, just to name a few D.C. insiders.

    Australia is becoming more and more like some police-controlled gulag than the (relatively) free and easy nation I grew up in. Sure, the government has always been anally-retentive about some things, and the police have (very) often been overzealous in their maintenance of the “law”. But at least they weren’t creating the law; that was left to our duly elected representatives.

    Except that now, WAPOL has taken it upon itself to no longer recognise AusPost as an “authorised carrier” for firearms, propellants etc. Just like that. Boom, gone. No-one else wants the job because of the red tape involved and the cost of becoming “authorised”. And it’s not just WA.

    While people here are chiding Europe, suggesting it will disintegrate, economic reforms are actually taking place there – significant ones that as this dude suggests are making the US look sclerotic.

    When Donald Trump won the White House a year ago this week, it seemed as if Europe would be doomed to look enviously across the Atlantic. Yes, enviously. Europeans told pollsters they would have elected Hillary Clinton if given the chance, but in their own countries they kept voting for unorthodox outsiders—who regardless never managed to win power, thanks to obtuse electoral systems and suffocating political correctness.

    A year on, and to the surprise of many, including this columnist, the pupil is excelling the teacher. Europe’s politicians all of a sudden are producing the kinds of changes American voters wanted Mr. Trump to deliver, while Washington increasingly looks like the sclerotic and neurotic European capitals of yore.

    It used to be that if you said some country’s ruling party was refusing to overhaul a deeply unpopular entitlement program despite supposedly having won an electoral mandate to do so, people would think you meant France. If you said a government with one of the highest corporate tax rates in the developed world was struggling to cut them, people would think you meant Germany. If you complained that a country’s leader was little more than a flamboyant media personality, thoughts would turn to Italy.

    Yet now those gripes are primarily true of Washington. Meanwhile, Emmanuel Macron has overhauled France’s labor laws and slashed corporate tax rates. His next target will be the French pension system. In the Netherlands the new government has committed to cutting its already competitive tax rates on capital and corporate income, and it will take on the pension system over the coming year. By way of reminder, the last American president to contemplate Social Security reform was George W. Bush more than a decade ago, and his effort was over before it began.

    The change in Europe involves politics as much as policy. Centrist politicians are chipping away at the walls of political correctness that used to seal off some issues from debate. Mark Rutte, the Dutch prime minister, won re-election in March in part by co-opting the saner parts of his fringe opponent Geert Wilders’s agenda on immigration.

    And

    Witness the way successive French governments promised to make the same reforms to that country’s labor laws, only to fail once in office. The consensus was born of long and miserable economic experience. What has changed in the past year is that a new sense of urgency has arisen for mainstream politicians to do it before voters turn to someone else. Thank Mr. Trump for that.

    Macron is reforming the labor market. More needs to be done. However this will have a knock on effect in Italy and Spain. Perhaps in 5 years time we will look back when in 2005ish Germany was viewed as the sick man of Europe, but 7 years later it was in the strongest position after the UK.

    Never forget, a libertarian is just a lefty with a basic understanding of economics. They will do anything, betray anyone and throw any cause or principle under the bus if means maintaining their position as the token “good” right-winger on the ABC panel or at the fashionable inner-city dinner party.
    These men chose to throw their lot in with GetUp!, a group whose aims have never been anything other than the to support the cultural, social and electoral aims of the ALP and the Greens. The same GetUp! that had current ALP opposition leader, brassiere enthusiast and probable next Prime Minister Bill Shorten on its original board.
    They decided to betray every conservative and right of centre citizen who voted for them to work with the largest, best funded and most effective leftist activist group in the country today.
    And yet not only are they still welcome in the parliamentary Liberal party, they’re probably a good representation of its future.
    If you’re still giving your first preference vote to the party of leftists in light blue you’re not only a fool, you’re a part of the problem.

    Linky here.

    Mr Carmont said the decision would set a new precedent for further court cases involving prenuptial agreements.

    “It doesn’t change the law, but it tells the courts and practitioners how you should interpret this part of the law,” he said.

    “What the court said is that the lawyer has to look at the agreement and say ‘is it obviously unfair’ and you have to look at the surrounding circumstances — such as our case where a wedding arranged with 100 guests that may have been cancelled with four days’ notice.

    “The High Court thought that was very significant.”

    Family lawyers across Australia have weighed-in on the outcome this week, with some saying it will make prenuptial agreements difficult to enforce.

    “The High Court has recognised that there will almost never be a circumstance where two partners have equal bargaining power in a relationship,” said family lawyer Heather McKinnon from law firm Slater and Gordon.

    “Essentially, the court has said that commercial principles of contract law have no place regulating the financial matters of the parties in an intimate relationship.”
    Mr Carmont said the outcome was one of the most satisfying he had ever experienced.

    “This is the biggest moment in my legal career. This is a momentous decision,” he said.

    Interesting point about this car is that it has around 500 k in battery life. Also, you’re able to charge it for free and Telsa pods and that takes an hour. If you have the proper current through your home the charge could also be an hour, otherwise it would take around 5 hours and cost around 16 bucks for a full charge. The sales schlep said that they are or soon will be selling a snake like device that automatically reaches your car in the garage on arrival and begins the charge the battery. You don’t have to do a thing.

    Here’s the thing about electric cars.

    For most city living people 500 of battery charge is plenty good enough.

    An electric motor has about 20 components or so vs 2000 in a petrol engine. I reckon that this should propel the cost of electric cars massively downward over a short period of time. I can see the possibility of a no frills type of electric car coming on stream for 5K once you get scaling.

    So, in the FIFO capital of QLD, the media have “exposed” the PHON candidate as someone who looks like a retired construction worker who can look after himself, has a “significant other” who runs an adult toy shop, and enjoys the odd non-PC joke.

    I reckon the pubilicity’s got to be worth about 10,000 votes to him.

    OK Dover, THIS is armwaving.

    We currently model the universe in the large as a 4-manifold with a tangent space having a lorentzian inner product tensor field, the so called metric tensor. It decomposes locally into the Cartesian product of a line, time, with an unknown compact 3-manifold, variously conjectured to be S^3, T^3 or the Poincaré dodecahedral space. The 4-manifold supports functions giving energy and mass densities. This allows the application of the curvature tensor and the Einstein equation.

    Empirical evidence shows increased densities in the remote past, going off to infinity about 13.8 billion years ago. Current thinking is that around that time the universe had a diameter of the order of a planck wavelength and the manifold model breaks down. This is the big bang theory, and it asserts that time and space did not exist prior to this event.

    For us at the present time, there is always a prior time and prior states, and we can ask how prior states led to a current state. All our experience leads us to ask such questions. The big bang was a singularity and there was no prior time or state. So there is no intelligible way of answering the question ‘where did the universe come from?’ or ‘what caused the big bang?’ Saying it came out of nothing is just another way of saying this. It is misleading, because most people interpret ‘nothing’ as empty space. But there was no space prior to the big bang and no prior time.

    This is so remote from our experience it is hard to deal with and natural language fails miserably. For those who think only in natural language, my advice is to give up and stop wasting your time trying to understand it. The advice of well meaning physicists is best ignored. Trying to burble comforting nonsense is not doing a kindness.

    If this comes over as patronising, sorry but I can’t help that. If you don’t have the intellectual equipment to handle something, then facing that uncomfortable truth is better than deceiving yourself.

    Demand for model 3 is through the fucking roof. The very real problem for Tesla is they can’t make enough of them to satisfy demand. Some people are suggesting this is the equivalent to the new iphone.

    The make will break when it does and impossible to predict. Some anal ysts are targets 500 bucks a share on this thing.

    Battery life and change out cost? Depreciation profile?

    Teslsa guarantees battery life for 8 years, which obviously means they expect more years of life. Call it 10 years. 10 years is plenty good enough, as that’s pretty much a good way to the car’s full life.

    Also keep in mind with fewer components the cost of maintaining the engine is far far less.

    The most unreliable parts in a modern car are the electrics.

  228. Makka

    JC, I think people will soon realise that the 2nd hand market for these will be thin. Who wants to pay for say 4-5 years of battery life that costs around 7k to replace. These things are built to a price and timeline so assuming 10 years is a little delusional. If it fails at 7 1/2 years say they put a new one in and you get refunded prorata 1/2 year.

    I’ve told you, be wary of Sales guys. The slick hairstyle and shiny shoes should be a big warning to you. Go outback and have a yarn to the Service guys for the real deal.

  229. JC

    The most unreliable parts in a modern car are the electrics.

    What you mean is the electronics, which applies to both types of cars.

    Here’s the thing though the electric motor isn’t complex and scaling will see massive drops in the cost of production. Who cares if a car becomes say unreliable after 10 years if the cost of replacement is a fraction of what it is now. In other words I can see the day when buying a car is no biggie cost wise and we could even end up with a subscription arrangement.

  230. thefrolickingmole

    For the electric car there should be a basic “Volkswagen” city type, maybe 200km radius battery (think mighty boy style) as cheap as possible.
    And for it to be sold as such, unapologetically, “this will get you to work and back for $5 a day” type advertising.
    Pair up with a hire car mob with guaranteed low hire rates for longer trips and you have a saleable package.

    I Love You, Daddy review – Louis CK’s brazen comedy is a screwball success
    4 / 5 stars
    The comedian writes, directs and stars in a black and white homage to Woody Allen which tackles button-pushing issues with daring panache

    I Love You, Daddy is a screwball comedy, written, directed by and starring Louis CK who financed it entirely himself, shot in New York in lustrous black-and-white; it contrives to be a very funny and recklessly provocative homage to Woody Allen, channelling his masterpiece Manhattan and brilliantly finding a fictional way to tackle his personal reputation head-on.


    Louis is discontented with the world of TV, and hero-worships an ageing movie director, who has worked a lot in Europe – played with self-satirising elegance by John Malkovich. This man has the toxic reputation of being sexually obsessed with young girls – but Glen angrily rejects any criticism of him on these grounds, insisting that this ill-informed gossip has no relevance to the work. But then he and China are invited to an A-list party hosted by a star Glen might now be in love with (played by Rose Byrne) and the great man is there. Glen is as tongue-tied and awkward as any fan. But to his rage, he realises the awful truth: his lovely daughter China has caught this man’s hooded eye – and she is mesmerised by his seductive charm. They are about to have an affair, breaking Glen’s heart into the bargain, twice over, both as dad and fan-worshipper, and there’s not a thing he can do about it.

    The two quasi-Woodies come into horribly ironic conflict, a generational dispute of patriarchal ownership, and it is a duplication that Louis has crafted with his own kind of insouciance. Both the famous film director and famous TV writer have a good deal in common: they have a patronising way with young women. And Louis CK provocatively, even outrageously, allows his heroes to talk down to China – “mansplaining”, to use the term that Glen just about concedes is accurate.

    Glen presumes to tell his daughter that she doesn’t understand what feminism is. Malkovich’s auteur lectures her on the same subject – and she listens politely. Later, Rose Byrne attempts to mollify the furious Glen, telling him that she had a relationship with an older man when she was a teenager. “Well you were raped,” says Glen. With any other comic, or actor, you might wince at a moment like this, at its sheer male presumption, and to be honest I did wince.

    Seriously sick people in hollyweird.
    No word on if any ficus were fertilized in the casting for the movie..

    I don’t disagree with you much of what you’ve said, but lets say that the cost of producing a car drops vertically and this reflects in the sales price. Why even bother worrying about the cost of replacing the batteries when a new one is materially cheaper. It will be almost like an Iphone thing that you don’t bother much with the old model.

    Look, we’re all soothsaying here and the future is hard to predict, but what I think is obvious is that the cost of producing an electric car will drop dramatically with economies of scale when you consider how simple the engine is to build.

    I urge to go into a Tesla shop and take a look, as they have a broken down version of the car where I went and I assume that’s the case elsewhere. The motor is small and very uncomplicated looking. Petrol engines these days are extremely expensive and very very complex because of all the anti pollution shit they have to attach to them too.

    And dont forget retards in government have already announced “ban” dates for anything but electric in some citys/states…

    That means a huge wad of government contracts for top of the line models coming up.
