    What about offence to the non-C and non-O?

    These results emerged despite efforts to encourage more female victims to disclose by using only female interviewers to conduct the latest survey — a move which required Gillian Triggs at the Human Rights Commission to give the nod to this discriminatory move. But surprisingly it ended up revealing the true extent of women’s violence against men.

    No one really knows whether more men are being abused or whether men are now more willing to admit to being victims but, as my latest YouTube video shows, women’s role in family violence is emerging more clearly.

    Every third victim of intimate partner violence is a male. Almost half the people being emotionally abused by their partners are male. The biggest leap in sexual harassment over the past five years involves men being harassed by women.

    The complexities of family violence revealed in these latest statistics fall in line with more than 40 years of international research showing domestic violence isn’t just about dangerous men terrorising their families.

    More than 1700 peer reviewed papers show that children growing up in violent homes usually witness their parents having a go at one another rather than dad being the villain.

  4. stackja

    But the latest homicide figures from the Australian Institute of Criminology show that domestic homicide results in one man being killed every 10 days. Women are more likely to use weapons in domestic abuse, hence their violence can also be lethal but few of the 75 males killed in the most recent domestic homicide incidents (2012-2014) attracted the media attention given to female victims.

    Naturally police know all about dangerous women. Listen to this member of the Victorian police force who is trying to protect her granddaughter from a violent mother: “Everyone in the job will tell you they see plenty of violent women in the homes we’re called out to; drug addicts, angry drunks, women with mental problems. Kids hiding not just from dads but from vicious mums. Yet often cops will take the woman’s side without question and ignore male victims.”

  6. stackja

    Thousands of bureaucrats are employed to defend the one-eyed policy on this issue. Mention the inconvenient truth revealed in the latest Safety Survey results and they’ll deny that the survey represents the true picture on domestic violence in this country. They’ll offer statistics showing growing numbers of police reports and deny these figures are artificially inflated by women obtaining AVOs to gain strategic advantage in family court battles, as publicly acknowledged by retiring judge David Collier from the Parramatta Family Court. Plus police reports now reflect the ever-expanding definition of domestic violence including threats of abuse and “economic” violence.

    Ten days of darkness. State of the Union address, 30th January, 2018.

    The Shutdown has nothing to do with DACA. That deadline is not till March and Trump will never, never again allow 25 million Democrat-voting, Soros funded illegals to vote in the sacred U.S. election process.

    It’s about the FISA document and the criminals in the Government.

    Article 1, Section 6, clause 1. Members of Congress are protected from arrest while in session.

    Government is shutdown.

    Half the Democrats and more than a few Republicans must be quaking in their medical boots.

    The smart ones, like John Brennan, fled the country a year ago.

    Trump is a genius. It almost goes without saying now doesn’t it.

  9. stackja

    Yes, the Personal Safety Survey provides the “most comprehensive data on prevalence of violence” in this country, a squirming bureaucrat told David Leyonhjelm last year in a senate committee. The bureaucrats being questioned by Senator Leyonhjelm have failed to produce any proper evidence that fighting domestic violence is all about “respect for women”.

    With official data now there to prove them wrong perhaps it’s time to seriously lobby for help for all victims, including support for men and their children seeking to escape women’s violence.

    Personally I don’t believe in any such sovereign Australian nation, it was a group of tribes or clans, … based around an extended family structure that was nothing like a nation.

    Indeed, the family basis shows in some of the competing claims. Mansells in Tasmaina claim exclusivity, rejecting the aboriginality of other claimants. The different spellings of Ngunnawal in the ACT seem to come from two different family groups claiming they are the only real local group.

    Delta Airlines:

    Delta Air Lines is taking steps to further protect its customers, employees and service and support animals by implementing advance documentation requirements for those animals. This comes as a result of a lack of regulation that has led to serious safety risks involving untrained animals in flight.

    Delta carries approximately 700 service or support animals daily — nearly 250,000 annually. Putting this into perspective, Delta carries more than 180 million passengers annually. Customers have attempted to fly with comfort turkeys, gliding possums known as sugar gliders, snakes, spiders and more. Ignoring the true intent of existing rules governing the transport of service and support animals can be a disservice to customers who have real and documented needs. Delta has seen an 84 percent increase in reported animal incidents since 2016, including urination/defecation, biting and even a widely reported attack by a 70-pound dog.

    In the rain outside the Supreme Court in Sydney on Friday, more than 20 protesters chanted: “Always was, always will be Aboriginal land.”

    But to which Aborigines does The Block at Redfern belong?

    Muslim immigrants: aren’t they great?

    A former St. Catherine University student charged with setting fires on the college’s St. Paul campus told police she did it because she’d “been reading about the U.S. military destroying schools in Iraq or Afghanistan and she felt that she should do exactly the same thing,” according to a criminal complaint filed Friday.

    You guys are lucky that l don’t know how to build a bomb because l would have done that,” Tnuza Jamal Hassan, 19, of Minneapolis allegedly told investigators after being arrested Wednesday afternoon in a campus dorm lounge…

    Hassan, appearing in court in a black and white hijab, gave only brief, one-word answers to questions from the judge.

    According to the complaint, she told investigators she set six fires on the private Catholic university’s campus, though university and fire officials said there were eight.

    The most serious fire started in Saint Mary Hall, a residential dormitory that also houses a day care. Police said there were 33 children and eight adults in the building when a chair was set ablaze — triggering the building’s sprinkler system, which prevented it from spreading.

  78. JC

    I don’t get the need for the cow fart reporting for a numbers of reasons. However, even if the EPA thinks it’s necessary to measure cow farts why do they need farmers reporting? There’s enough statistical methodology to get very close to calculating the US cow herd cow far production. There is also enough topographical information to ascertain the quality of the farting too. These methods would get very close to estimating the amount of methane produced by the cow herd. Therefore, what’s the need to obtain farmer reporting other than pissing off the US farming community with even more forms and red tape?

    Trump needs to close this shit down and fire the fucker who thought it up. It’s not really designed to obtain information, it’s basically a government jackboot placed on the necks of farmers.

    Has anyone from the EPA gone to jail for basically poisoning the Colorado river? They went close to destroying it. BP ended paying ~ US$30 billion for the non-existent Gulf spill. I bet no one was fired let alone facing a long stretch for what those fuckers did to that river system.

    Inconvenient truth is that diffuse low volume releases of farts and belches by cattle grazing pasture are part of the carbon cycle.

    The paddock of grass the cows graze is a simple fart absorbing sponge, and the carbon based soil organisms that outweigh and outfart cows on a per acre basis thrive on the cows cycling carbon, as compared say to fire cycling the carbon in an environment without cow grazing.

    The narrative is all about totalitarian Stalinism, the cow fart thing is just to let vegynsys wymynsys get on their high horses.

    Struth,

    Damn right. I’m no fan of the Poms, but if someone else had colonised this country we wouldn’t be having this discussion because the indigenous folk – in whatever form – wouldn’t be here.

    This is correct. La Perouse arrived in Botany Bay just a few days after Phillip and the First Fleet arrived. A delegation of the British from Sydney Cove journeyed to Botany Bay to meet La Perouse and reported that he had built a stockade there, and the French were busy shooting the aboriginals.

    Whereas the British came out with orders to make friends with the natives, and Phillip made it clear that anyone who harmed an aboriginal would be punished, the French were amusing themselves by shooting the aboriginals.

    The British delegation reported that the French shot at least 20 in one day alone. How many aboriginals would there be today if we had the Tricolour rather than the Union Jack in a corner of our flag.

    Hey CL,

    Remember a few years when we were making fun of Harry with this pic?

    He went absolutely ballistic. I reckon he would have been violent if we were together, but he would have received a decent clipping back. He went hog wold. He was such a gerbiler at the end of his career. In fact he went gerbil warming crazy.

    I also recall the Harold was posting comments about about some Harvard prof who made a 200 year gerbil warming prediction that sent Harry into fetal position due to fear. It was as if he’d be alive then and would end up dying from a massive gerbiling.

    Anyway, without a hair’s width of exaggeration, the Harvard research prof was charged and I think convicted of stealing his neighbor’s manure to put on his garden. When CL announced that, Harry went over the edge. It was like a version of Thelma and Louise. without Thelma and Louise… just Harry going over the cliff in anger. Fun times.

    I suspect Ataturk might have been a teensy bit busy at the time on the Dardanelles Peninsula, an entire sea away from Asia Minor where the massacres started, with the prospect of repelling an Allied invasion somewhere on the western Turkish coast. It’s not as though the landing was a surprise as the British and French Navies has already copped a hiding trying to clear the straits. Constantinople was a stated aim of Churchill and the Dardanelles was the only place where a landing could be forced.

    If the landings were a resounding success, then it is reasonable to speculate the Armenians may have rebelled at that point. But not before. Were there British letter drops in all Turkey’s Armenian quarters advising them of a date?

    Nemkat,

    If by ‘started’ you mean 230 rounded up from Constantinople (a long way from the Dardanelles) on April 24, then potentially yes. The actual massacres and death marches started much later and continued until 1919, and before Ataturk took office.

    Think for a minute. Why would the Turks start a roundup on the same day that an uprising was supposed to start? You know, when the Armenians were armed up, prepared and ready to go? Wouldn’t they have done it months beforehand if they prior knowledge of an insurrection?

    The whole point of the Dardanelles campaign was to seize control of the Black Sea and knock Turkey out of the war, which would also assist the Russians greatly. It was not to create an Armenian state, nor a Kurdish one for that matter.

    Try as I might, I can’t find any references to ‘sealed orders’. Is that code for ‘I’ll believe what I want so if I say “sealed orders” everyone has to believe me and I don’t have to prove it’?

    I only ask because you’ve brought these mysterious secret agent ‘sealed orders’ to the table twice today, and haven’t provided a shred of proof for either scenario.

    In summary:

    Did the massacres occur? Yes.
    Was Ataturk, the future leader and father of a SECULAR Turkey behind it? On the evidence and due to his being rather busy at the time, no.

    Disprove me with evidence rather than Testes-style screeching. Happy to stand corrected if you do so.

    “There is mounting evidence that large-scale migration of men from extremely patriarchal cultures is limiting women’s freedom.””

    Seriously – what did these people really expect to happen? The Swedish experience cannot, surely, be explained away as an unintended consequence. Someone, somewhere evidently thought it was really, really good idea to import hundreds of thousands of military age males (yes 14 is military age in the ME) who miraculously arrived with no ID documents and no women into a country and culture that was anathema to all their belief systems.

    I’m all for patriarchal cultures though. Been around plenty of stoned women, although I’ve never stoned one myself.

    NATIONAL AFFAIRS
    Senior public servant defends rising levels of sick leave
    John Lloyd says he does not want the public service culture to be as tough as the private sector.

    The Australian
    12:00AM January 22, 2018

    Australia’s Public Service Commissioner says private sector workplaces are too tough when it comes to granting sick leave, as the amount of sickies rises in a third of all government agencies and departments.

    John Lloyd said it was unrealistic to expect public service workers to take the same amount of days off compared with the private sector.

    There remained a culture problem with sick leave in “some areas” of the public service after data showed bureaucrats across a number of agencies had taken more unscheduled leave compared with the previous year.

    Mr Lloyd said he did not want the public service culture to be as tough as the private sector, where he claimed workers in some companies were scared to take leave.

    The rise in sick leave in more than 30 agencies and departments came despite a push from the commission to crack down on unscheduled leave under Mr Lloyd’s leadership from 2014.

    Leave in the public service was slightly down in the year to last June, an average of 11.4 days per employee compared with 11.5 a year earlier.

    This compares with an average of 9.5 days unscheduled leave per employee in the private sector, according to a survey by Direct Health Solutions.

    “With some areas of the private sector, there is a culture which is probably a bit too unforgiving on having absence because of illness; we don’t want to move to that type of culture but just to have one where discretionary leave is taken more responsibly and for legitimate purposes,” Mr Lloyd said. “In some parts of the private sector, there is a very tough culture on this — you (hear) of ­people reticent to take leave when they probably should … that is not a culture I want to have.”

    From the Oz. You couldn’t make it up, could you?

    The dispute erupted over a decision by Labour chiefs to charge black and ethnic minority activists £10 less per ticket than white activists to attend a rally next month.

    Tory MPs last night accused Labour of racism and said it was further evidence that the party had abandoned the white working class.

    The reason already mooted, that Drudge is asleep at the wheel or on a long weekend or whatever and the nightshift crew are phoning it in doesn’t really jive – he’s been running hot on the government shutdown these last few days.

    All true except the first part. many of my colleagues working in the resource and mining sector have salaries public sector experts can only dream of (including options etc.).

    The same in IT or in security etc. I have a friend who used to work in government, then took voluntary redundancy. Then he found a job in the private sector. He was paid much higher but worked ridiculously long hours. also the work was far less interesting. in the end he quit and found another job with a government.

    In summary people in public sector are paid less than in the private sector but have better working conditions and greater job security. Generally also less stress but it depends…

    well that’s the view from the right. Not sure about UK Labor supporters. After the brexit there was a huge backlash from Labor MPs who were convinced Corbyn makes Labor unelectable. Yet he won Labor election and nearly defeated the Tories in the general election.

    Labor voters may view positive discrimination as a good thing. as appalling as it sounds.

    No, it’s absolutely true, Borry. The average public sector worker earns around {IIRC} $10kpa more than the average private sector worker. To say that you know some people in the private sector who make much more than people in the public sector is not an argument. There are senior people in the public sector who make money that your friends can only dream of – so what? We’re talking about across-the-board averages here.

    Traditional Labour voters, ie. the whites who are expected to pay more, will not be impressed. The Labour constituency has shifted, that is true. Jeremy Corbyn is not a popular leader outside of the Labour party’s new rank and file – people who are British equivalents to Bernie Bros – that signed up to elect Corbyn. The now minority old guard Labour types can’t stand him but can’t be rid of him because they’re outnumbered. He nearly won because May ran a historically bad campaign in an election that Labour would have undoubtedly won if Corbyn wasn’t the leader. The fact that someone so unelectable came close to winning is proof of how bad Theresa May’s campaign was.

    Not necessarily. Nobody expected Corbyn to win. I think people felt safe to register a protest vote without risking a Corbyn government.

    And Corbyn didn’t actually come close to winning at all. Labour won around 100 fewer seats than the Tories. He had no chance of forming a coalition with those numbers, except a grand coalition with the Tories which was never going to happen. Corbyn didn’t at all come close to winning. He picked up a couple of dozen extra seats after a truly dismal Tory campaign. He was not at all in range of Number 10.

    The BBC takes a very dim view of any EU country not accepting its share of “migrants”. They portray them as run by ultra right reactionary stooges who will get their comeuppance from the enlightened EU sovereignty stealers in Brussels.

    The Sultan on the Horror Shutdown:

    In the midst of all this chaos, a weary nation’s eyes turn to Washington D.C. But since the shutdown, which also shut off all power, water and press releases to the embattled city, no word has reached the outside world of what is taking place there. The last message was a smoke signal dispatched by Elizabeth Warren from the roof of a burning Capitol Building. An expert in Native American smoke signals decoded it to read, “I told you so. Now we’re all doomed.”

    As the nation descends into chaos, one thing is clear. The government shutdown has once again doomed us all. Just like the last 17 times.

    Apologies if this has been posted earlier in the thread.

    In Breitbart today.

    The Labour Party is charging white people extra to attend a Jeremy Corbyn rally in Loughborough, Leicestershire, on February 17th.
    Labour activists and supporters attending the rally will be charged £40 if they are white and £30 if they are non-white, reports the Mail on Sunday.

    “The basic price of a conference pass is the same for all members but, at the request of our East Midlands Regional Board, the party will subsidise part of the cost of this year’s conference pass for BAME [Black and Minority Ethnic] members to encourage attendance and improve representation,” explained a Labour spokesman.

    Of course, this really means that the basic price of a conference pass is not the same for all members, with white people being singled out to pay more than any other ethnic group.

    “This is racism. In effect, Labour is levying a tax on the basis of the colour of a person’s skin. It shows their contempt for the white working class,” responded Andrew Bridgen, the Member of Parliament for North-West Leicestershire.

    The Tory pointed out the “insanity” of charging a poor white Labour activist more for a ticket than Leicester East MP Keith Vaz, a rich ex-lawyer born in the Middle East.

    Un-bloody-believable!
