    I do not condone Barnaby Joyce’s affair. But I think it is perfectly ay-ok for him to take $150K to spill all. Markson at the DT has been banging on trying to justify her breaking the story in the first place – like if you are against gay marriage you must be a virgin. It is clear she has had it out for Joyce. Still she has rendered both the kid’s parents unemployable so I think they are doing the right thing grabbing what they can and setting up the poor mite. I hope they write a book as well. Go on a speaking tour…set up an instagram for the little boy so he can do product endorsements…. Yeah, I say work it. The kid’s innocent. He’s going to have a hard enough time with these media vultures around.

    31st Battalion A.I.F

    Bugden, Patrick Joseph (1897–1917)
    On 26 September 1917, the 31st Battalion took part in the second phase of the battle of Polygon Wood. As it advanced towards its objective the leading platoons were swept by fierce machine-gun fire from a group of pillboxes. Bugden was in a small party sent forward to attack the first strong point: successfully ‘silencing the machine-gun with bombs’, he ‘captured the garrison at the point of the bayonet’. In the next two days he performed several similar acts of gallantry, each of which contributed to the battalion’s advance. Once, single-handed, he rescued a corporal who was being taken to the German lines, and at least five times he dashed out into intense shell and machine-gun fire to bring in wounded. ‘Always foremost in volunteering for any dangerous mission’, he was killed on 28 September. For his bravery during the preceding two days Bugden was awarded a posthumous Victoria Cross.

    Rita Panahi: Vital to separate fiction from fact
    Rita Panahi, Herald Sun
    May 27, 2018 8:20pm
    Subscriber only

    THE information age was meant to make us better informed than ever before. And, yet some falsehoods continue to be regurgitated despite being comprehensively and repeatedly debunked.

    “A lie told often enough becomes the truth” is a line most commonly attributed to Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels or Russian communist revolutionary Vladimir Lenin.

    That seems to be the case with the lie that Aboriginal people were once considered fauna under the flora and fauna Act and were not classified as humans until the 1967 referendum.

    The truth is that Aborigines were never considered fauna and no such Act existed.

    It is an urban myth, pure fiction that continues to be spread far and wide despite many professors, constitutional law experts and researchers setting the record straight.

    Disappointingly, those complicit in spreading this “fake fact” are often highly educated members of the media, academia and political class, including Labor MP Linda Burney, ABC-TV host Charlie Pickering and, most recently, actor Aaron Pedersen.

    In a wideranging interview with News Corp, Pedersen made the bogus flora and fauna claim which was reported uncritically as follows:

    “People talk about the Stolen Generation, we’re the children of the Stolen Generation. Our mothers and fathers were ‘flora and fauna’. I mean, people have got to understand how that makes us feel,” Pedersen said.

    “You can’t go round calling us flora and fauna for 170-odd years and then make us citizens and make us humans. We were humans before that.”

    Pedersen knows history will take care of the men who dreamt up the “flora and fauna” policy — “history makes fools of people” — so he fixes his eyes on the future.

    “This country can only get smarter by increasing the think-tank.”

    This country can only get smarter by calling out fallacious and mendacious crap that is reiterated by those who should know better.

    Why spread tall tales, discredited long ago, when there are plenty of real instances of Aborigines being mistreated after white settlement?

    Pedersen is clearly passionate about indigenous affairs so how does he not know that this story spread about his people is rubbish?

    ….

    But in the modern era, the “fake news” isn’t always due to innocent errors or even incompetence. Too many journalists allow their personal views to colour their reporting, blurring the lines between news and opinion.

    Nowhere is that more apparent than in the US where Donald Trump appears to have sent sections of the media into an irrational infamy spiral where they’ve lost any semblance of balance or impartiality. Trump’s most ardent opponents in the media fail to see how their grossly partisan reporting actually aids the President and gives credence to his claims against the press.

    It’s little wonder that trust in the media is an at all-time low in the US, according to a Knight-Gallup poll published this year. Sixty-six per cent of Americans say “most news media do not do a good job of separating fact from opinion”, up from 42 per cent in 1984.

    Activist journalists who allow their ideology to override their objectivity continue to damage the media’s credibility. You are entitled to your opinion but you cannot peddle fake facts to suit your narrative.

    Newspoll: Voters snub Bill Shorten’s tax attack

    They do. But Shorten’s problems are deeper than that.

    The Newspoll data shows that the prospects for the Turnbull Lucky Fortune Coalition Team have been on the mend since late 2017.

    Curve fitting onto the data shows clearly that the Coalition Primary vote turned the corner in December 2017/January 2018 – and has improved steadily since. Assuming the trend continues, the Government is likely to be well ahead of Labor on Primary and line ball on 2PP by July/August.

    And not because of any brilliant Turnbull policy initiatives.

    The polls suggest that Shorten personally – and the Shorten/ACTU/ALP ‘class war’ business model generally – resonate with the punters like a turd floater in the swimming pool.

    But locked in now, brothers – too late in the cycle to rissole Shorten and start again.

    The left has been busy for decades de-legitimising the past, making it a horrid, barren, crippled place.

    Not the remote past. Just the part that would inform the present, and which would be an obstacle on their march.

    In pursuit of this, they have made all men of the 20th century misogynistic wife-beaters. Racist to their very core, abusers of children, superstitious and hostile to any enlightenment. They have travelled the world to join in wars and enjoined in orgies of bloodshed, murder and rape. They stole little black babies because they were so brimming with hate and the need to supplant everything beautiful with tier own ugliness. All priests were p3d0s, all businessmen ravenous exploiters, and all the exploited just transmitted the forces pressing on them down to those below until all was borne by wymminses and non-whites.

    They need us to hate the past because they know that it would give strength to the present.

    We may well be one of the first societies that widely despises its antecedents. The Romans venerated their past. The Greeks in The Iliad were definitely bucking the trend by singing that they were the finest generation ever to march to war. The mediaevals saw the past as a place of conflict between good and evil where their forbears had struggled and triumphed – it was the abode of saints and giants.

    It is not just that the left lies so much. But the fact that they have to shows that they are not really up to the tasks they presume to.

    Possibly – but then the problem is what to do with Plibersek. Either piss off the ALP Right by arranging for both the PM and Deputy PM to come from the left – or commit the most heinous sin possibly possible and displace a wymenses.

    They’re now saying Alzheimer is diabetes C. If so why is this man still at it, or maybe he’s actually riddled with it and no one noticed.

    Since 2004, those lunches have been hosted by famous steakhouse Smith & Wollensky. In fact, the restaurant is among Buffett’s favorites.

    The menu at the Manhattan eatery touts decadent entrees like the roasted veal chop with lemon and thyme marmalade for $54, 15 oz. cold water lobster tails for $59 and a Cajun rib steak for $59, as well as $16 craft cocktails, such as the Pendennis Club, Wallbanger Revisited and the Salty Dog.

    But Buffett’s palate isn’t very pretentious.

    A 2007 winner of the auction says that Buffett orders “a medium-rare steak with hash browns and a cherry coke.” For dessert, he reportedly asked the waiter for a couple of spoons, explaining that he’ll have “a little of everyone’s.”

    A spokesperson for Smith & Wollensky previously confirmed that this is indeed Buffett’s preferred meal at the restaurant and that his favorite cut of steak is a sirloin. The steak is priced at $49, while the hash browns cost $15.

    An order of Cherry Coke is a classic soft drink choice for the billionaire.

    Buffett, 87, has long been vocal about his love for Coke, and even told Fortune in 2015 that he is “one-quarter Coca-Cola.” The sharp-minded investor claims to drink at least five 12-ounce servings every day — three during the day and two at night. Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway has a big stake in The Coca-Cola Company.

    How did this man get away with this sort of behavior over 87 years?

    The fucker drinks 5 cans of coke a day!

    “Congratulations to Mamoudou Gassama for his act of bravery that saved the life of a child,” Ms Hidalgo said on her official Twitter account, adding that she spoke with him by phone to thank him.

    Ms Hidalgo said Mr Gassama told her that he arrived from Mali a few months ago and wished to stay in France.

    “I replied that his heroic gesture was an example for all citizens and that the City of Paris will obviously be keen to support him in his efforts to settle in France,” Ms Hidalgo said.

    Edward Snowden: Russian collusion is too ‘complicated’ for Trump

    “I think people are asking for too much when they hope that the Mueller investigation is going to come up with kind of a smoking gun …” Snowden told The Intercept, referring to salacious allegations included in the so-called Steele dossier.
    “You know that’s not how the world works, life is not that simple,” he said.

    It’s claimed though, the Special Investigation started with something simpler than a bang.
    The Beginning according to Mark Stein :-

    Spy: “George, you know about hacking the emails from Russia, right?”
    George: Er, yes.
    Spy: So you got that from the Russians, right?
    George: Er, no. I got it from a Maltese guy in Italy who’s a Scottish professor and plugged in to MI6, and then I told it to an Australian bloke in London who’s also plugged in to MI6 and told me to lay off David Cameron, and then an American guy in Cambridge who’s plugged in to MI6 reminded me about it to see if I’d deny all knowledge of it, which would be suspicious, wouldn’t it..?

    Interesting in the way the UK press has observed the blackout.

    The UK MSM have had no reservation reporting the protests over Robinson’s arrest. They are careful however to report, for example, that he was “arrested on suspicion of breaching the peace” (rather than convicted and sentenced for contempt) and that he “currently remains in custody” (rather than he is serving a 13 month sentence in HMP Hull).

    Even though many Brits are discussing the matter online, the sentencing judge has stored up a degree of shock for the UK public when the reporting restriction is lifted and the punters find out that you can be perfunctorily ‘disappeared’.

    Big data, artificial intelligence and social media are upending how we live, work and communicate. How can we protect our basic human rights? Leaders in industry, government and academia will explore the human rights implications of unprecedented technological change at a landmark event in Sydney.
    The Australian Human Rights Commission’s international Human Rights and Technology conference on July 24 will also launch a major Commission project led by Human Rights Commissioner, Edward Santow.
    “This project will create a blueprint for responsible and inclusive innovation and give Australian governments a framework to protect our rights and freedoms in the digital age,” Commissioner Santow said.
    “Artificial intelligence is helping to treat life-threatening disease. Yet the Cambridge Analytica controversy shows how similar technology can also threaten privacy and other rights.”
    Vice President and Deputy General Counsel at Microsoft Corporation, Steve Crown, and Aza Raskin, the former Mozilla Head of User Experience now Co-founder of the US Center for Humane Technology, will be among the experts presenting at the conference.
    Other speakers include:
    • UN Special Rapporteur on the right to privacy, Professor Joe Cannataci
    • Chief Scientist of Australia, Dr Alan Finkel AO
    • ABC Managing Director, Michelle Guthrie
    • Australia’s Ambassador for Cyber Affairs, Dr Tobias Freakin’.
    The Commission will start a broad community consultation with the launch of an issues paper at the conference. Informed by input from industry, academic experts, civil society and government, the Commission’s final report and recommendations will be released in late 2019.
    “Technology is impacting our lives on a revolutionary scale,” Commissioner Santow said.
    “With growing community awareness of technology’s potential for harm, our challenge is to build a future that Australians want and need, rather than one we fear.”
    This Commission project is supported by the following major project partners: The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Herbert Smith Freehills, LexisNexis and University of Technology Sydney.

    The Australian Human Rights Commission’s Human Rights and Technology conference will take place on 24 July 2018, at the Four Seasons Hotel in Sydney.

    The Italy situation is in effect a coup by the EU.

    It could get very messy.

    The president’s move to quash Savona’s nomination was unprecedented in recent history and exposed a deep divide between Mattarella, who serves as the head of state and is suppose to be politically neutral, and the two populist parties – the Five Star Movement (M5S) and the far-right Lega (formerly the Northern League) – who have struggled desperately to form a government and support a more antagonistic relationship with Brussels.
    Mattarella defended his decision by saying that naming Savona as finance minister – which he already said he opposed – posed a risk for Italian families and citizens, because it created uncertainty in the Italian economy.

    Mattarella said he would evaluate a call by the leaders of the M5S and the Lega for snap elections. He summoned a former official at the International Monetary Fund, Carlo Cottarelli, to the presidential palace on Monday, which was interpreted as a sign that Cottarelli would be asked to form a government of unelected technocrats.

    Mattarella’s move could risk a constitutional crisis.

Why, the decision of the WA State Prosecutor to drop 31 fraud charges against Ralph Blewitt, of AWU Workplace Reform Association fame, because there was ‘little prospect of a conviction’. This despite the Trade Union Royal Commission finding there was ample evidence of a crime having been committed by Blewitt and his boss Bruce Wilson (pictured above with his “young and naive” bedmate), their efforts abetted by the unwitting assistance of former PM Julia Gillard. On top of that, Blewitt announced his involvement in the scam, a concession one would have thought made conviction a slam-dunk certainty.

    Tasmania should be sold to Israel which would turn it into an economic powerhouse in about 12 months flat.

    And in 12 months and one day, there would be psychotic ululating penguins suddenly discovering that they never really left Tasmania, coining the word ‘Penguinstine’ (insisting it proves their ancient connection – after all, there is a word now) and announcing that they will push the humans off the face of the earth.

    This will be full-throatedly encouraged by the MSM who will be using footage of dead penguin chicks from David Attenborough programs but announcing it to be a full-scale slaughter by Tasmanians, and indignantly posing the question as to how much longer the world can continue to close its eyes to genocide.

    The UN will start issuing resolutions against Tasmania like confetti, declaring that it is all the Tasmanians’ fault, that there needs to be a two-state solution where all the Tasmanians are to completely surrender, be disenfranchised, have their property confiscated, their traditions banned, and become slaves to the Penguinstinians.

    After another few weeks Tasmania is a heap of rubble as one band of Penguinstinians after another go on the rampage against the rest, blowing up infrastructure smashing private property. Nothing will work. The Penguinstinians will demand money from the UN. All the other nations where Penguins live will suddenly forget about the Penguinstinians if there is no chance of attacking Tasmanians.

    The Greens will lobby to have all the Penguinstinians resettled to non-Greens suburbs in Australia.

    Vikki will be long gone by then, so perhaps it’s a good idea to lock up the money for the poor little boy now. At least it won’t be split 50-50 that way.

    BHP stockholders have done really well since the Brazil mine collapse.

    I think it reached a low of 14 buckarooskies. If you include the South32 split, the current price is very close to 36 bucks.

    I bought that falling knife at the time and was mocked and abused by people here telling me it was going to head much lower because the Brazil thing was going to cripple the firm.
    What a bunch of sheilas.

    I didn’t keep the holding as I treated it as a trade. But what a great fucking move up, hey.

    Here’s a theory that fits the known facts a lot better: Trump is a bumbling idiot with no clue what he is doing on the world stage, and China was quite happy to bribe him with that $500M Indonesian investment to nullify any threat he might have posed.

    I have to admire your loyalty to the left fascist narrative, good running dog!

    I’m still staggering with awe at Barnaby Joyce hiring out his baby.
    And no, the “trust fund” doesn’t make it OK.
    That’s still money Joyce himself will save when the boy attains the age of majority.

    I wish my parents had done this.
    It’s f$cking genius.
    I could have got a deposit on a house AND hair transplants all paid off at 18.
    Barnaby is a classy guy who obviously cares about his child’s future.
    F$ck your principles unless you are willing to write the kid a cash cheque for 150 grand in 17 years time when everyone has forgotten all about this sh$t.

    The ABC thinks this is news:

    Adelaide is in desperate need of a comprehensive gig guide after the loss of street magazines left a “significant hole” in the industry, insiders say, even as an independent filmmaker bucks the trend by launching a new zine.

    In the real world, Adelaide could be desperate for a few other things; such as industries and jobs.

    cohenite, thanks for posting that video of the rally for tommy in melbourne.

    More quality reporting from the ABC:

    From the tip of Tassie to the coast of Queensland, it would seem every man and his dog has seen a Thylacine — despite the species being extinct on the mainland for up to 2,000 years. But did you know the Tasmanian Tiger did in fact make its way across much of Australia and even as far as the Top End? “I come from western Arnhem land … My family said they lived up on the escarpment country,” said author Marie Munkara.”

    More “tales my nana told me”, the ABC reports uncritically.

    Though the absolute extinction of the species is often attributed to human contact, Indigenous Australians once lived side-by-side with the Tasmanian Tiger, Ms Munkara said. “The old days, we used to keep them as pets — we had dingoes as well,” Ms Munkara said.

    Sure, sure. No evidence cited to support keeping Tasmanian Tigers as pets. Having said that, indigenous oral tradition probably is more reliable than the ABC.

    Though whether or not the species still roams the Territory is a matter of personal opinion, Ms Munkara believes they could have existed in Arnhem Land as early as 100 years ago.

    No, it is not “personal opinion” it is a matter of fact: either they do or they don’t. And, if they did, they would have been seen by now.

    And “as early as” should be “as late as”. Pathetic.

    If the Queen had any political sense at all, she would have told one of the kids – Meghan would be best – to make a tut tut about TRs lack of procedural justice.
    I pick Meghan because Black/Female/celebrity status.

    Hi Winston.
    First, I believe Tommy broke parole by speaking publicly on the subject. Secondly, I doubt people would be advised by a Hollywood starlet, no matter how pretty her complexion. We’re learning fast about the perverse pedo proclivities of Hollywood and the Global top rung Elites. Liz Cronin is doing an awesome job exposing them.

    And little videos like this are spreading and making people go… 🤔

    Wedge the Left good and proper.

    Promoting identity chauvinism actually works for them. The Elites want civil discord.
    Hence the mass Muslim immigration. I would love to see politicians in the West calling Muslim immigration what it is – Population Replacement.

    Anyway, conflict serves their Problem, Reaction, Solution Agenda. Left hates Right, Blacks hate Whites, Muslims hate J e w s, Atheists hate Christians.

    It’s great if we kill each other but they’re happy if we just don’t get along, don’t talk to each other, don’t collude, lest we work out who our real enemies are, not each other but them, the Ruling Elite.

    Use some of that bastards Rules for Radicals right back at them. They don’t like it up ém.
    Or do they?

    Yes, I think sodomy is important to them. They are foul. 👿

    I bought that falling knife at the time……

    Me too JC. I bought in early Jan 2016 and sold in November that same year. I remember when the price dipped below $20 and even then I thought, “wow, that’s cheap”. Then it continued to fall and once it broke $17, I couldn’t hold back any longer. I didn’t imagine they would go into the $15’s, but I was convinced that my investment was sound and that BHP would recover.

    If only I had bought more shares I could be writing this from my home in Monaco, but I am not (sigh).

  196. He actually scolded them for not being sufficiently open and tolerant.

    Yes, I think I saw a snippet of this yesterday. He was saying that this really was something that should be left to an individual’s conscience. Well, rhetorically, we should return the argument back at them. Oh, so you don’t like guns? Well, I believe it should be a matter for one’s individual conscience whether one owns a semi-automatic weapon. Oh, you don’t like sexual harassment. Surely that is a matter for one’s individual conscience. And so on.

    No, you imbecile, Numbuts. There will be more, as the funds will be invested on the kid’s behalf. At a 3.5% compound rate there should be just under 270K in the account.

    Can you follow the instructions from last week and insure you only comment when you’re specifically requested by one of the commenters here? I promise, someone will eventually ask for you over the next couple of years.

    Very very sad … Chelsea Manning posts suicide message on Twitter

    It is sad. So many people think that fake sex changes and the like can make them happy. (One of the younger ones in my wider family is currently doing this stuff and won’t listen.) So often it fails. Yet if he were to become a Christian it is likely he would be happy in his own body, as we’re taught it from the bible.

    I hope he finds some peace with God before he comes before him to explain the deeds he’s done.
