    Hot locks.

    Lock of Custer’s hair is sold at auction for more than $12G

    “He writes to Libbie about his loss,” Swanson added. “Libbie, his wife, requested that he save his hair when he went to the barber and to send it to her as she was making a wig from it. Inside the case was evidence that he did so. A large envelope with his hair was found, ready to send.”

    That Alamo barber’s heirs missed out on some big money.

    Why Turnbull can beat Shorten, then lose his party’s soul

    Call it the historian’s instinct but, based on more than 40 years’ professional interest in Australian elections, I am starting to think that the government is likelier than not to be returned, especially if Malcolm Turnbull as Prime Minister is pitted against Bill Shorten as Opposition Leader.

    Sure, the government has lost 33 Newspolls in a row to Labor, has a majority of just one seat, has suffered an unfavourable redistribution in Victoria and will be out-spent and possibly out-campaigned by Labor, the Greens, GetUp! and the unions. Sure, it has been a divided, do-little government whose leader is loathed by many conservatively inclined Liberals as Labor-lite. But the one person whose negative net approval ratings have been consistently worse than Turnbull’s is Shorten, and every time the government echoes Labor policy on school funding, the banking royal commission or climate change, Shorten-led Labor promptly moves further to the left. It’s an utterly dispiriting choice between a poor government and an even worse opposition but — if it has to be made — voters will likely choose the lesser evil.

    At least in their own polling, the Liberals and the Nationals are starting to pick up a sense that, for all its faults, the Coalition government represents stability while Labor, under Shorten, means another lurch into the unknown with thuggish union leaders calling the shots. Throughout the electorate there’s no great confidence in either party, but at least Turnbull has become the devil you know. Turnbull is disliked, often heartily, but Shorten is deeply feared because of what comes in his baggage.

    Turnbull’s mini-revival could be snuffed out by poor results in the July 28 by-elections. So far, published polling has Labor behind in Braddon and Longman, with the Libs well behind in Mayo. Still, Mayo is a seat the Liberals don’t hold while Braddon and Longman are seats Labor must retain if it’s to remain credible. A Liberal victory in either — unprecedented in a federal by-election — will transform the political dynamic and even could lead to a general election this year.

    During the past two years, Turnbull’s move to the left has infuriated much of the Liberal Party’s base, temporarily revived One Nation’s fortunes and spawned Cory Bernardi’s Australian Conservatives. But it hasn’t really hurt the government’s electoral prospects because Shorten, unlike the last successful Labor opposition leaders, Bob Hawke and Kevin Rudd, has tacked further to the left rather than back to the centre. Faced with a government that’s centre-left or an opposition that would be the worst Labor government in history, what are conservative voters to do but at least give Turnbull their preferences?

    Meanwhile, a series of Liberal preselection contests in NSW shows the depth of party discontent. Before no recent federal election has more than one sitting NSW MP been challenged. This time, unless the challengers give up or are knocked out by candidate vetting, four sitting members are at risk. Local party members are challenging Ann Sudmalis in Gilmore and Jason Falinski in Mackellar. A former Christopher Pyne staff member is challenging John Alexander in Bennelong, despite Alexander’s recent by-election win. But the most significant challenge is NSW Liberal vice-president Kent Johns competing against Craig Kelly, the member for Hughes. It pits a Turnbull-supporting factional operative against a Tony Abbott-supporting grassroots conservative who has been an active local MP and a strong public advocate for small business and lower power prices.

    Believe it or not, the Liberal Party in Hughes comprises just 250 members out of more 100,000 electors. Local party chieftains aligned with Johns have locked up most of the branches. On past form, these preselectors will do what they’re told — that is, decide Johns is the best candidate, even though Kelly has taken a 0.5 per cent margin to 9 per cent. Short of a factional peace deal to give him most of the central council delegates, Kelly is gone. But such a deal would require Turnbull’s blessing to save the most vocal partyroom critic of his energy policy.

    This raises the big question: what sort of Liberal Party does the Prime Minister want, other than one that he leads? Plainly, Turnbull’s party is not the “economically liberal but socially conservative” party of John Howard’s characterisation. Turnbull’s party is economically interventionist and socially progressive, only not quite to the same extent as Labor. Is Turnbull’s preference to marginalise conservatives and to get rid of them when he can; or is it to preserve some semblance of Howard’s “broad church”?

    How the Hughes preselection plays out will give the strongest clue since Turnbull first formed his cabinet. On form, you’d have to say that he won’t invest much authority to save an MP he doesn’t like. Kelly’s fate may not be central to the federal election result but it certainly will be a litmus test of where the party is going. A Kelly-less Liberal Party won’t win votes from minor parties on the right even if it still gets them back via preferences — so Turnbull could end up winning an election but, in the process, continuing to diminish the life and soul of his party.

    Bill Shorten, where have you been? – Graham Richardson

    The problem of sexual abuse of children as young as two in Aboriginal communities across the country has received widespread publicity over the last year or two. This is a healthy development, because too many of us knew of the problem and did nothing to fix it. Too many of us feared being dubbed “racist” or felt that our indigenous people should deal with the problem themselves. This conspiracy of silence simply meant that more and more children were subjected to the most vicious forms of abuse.

    You would be entitled to believe that Labor leader Bill Shorten’s ears would have pricked up, particularly after the details of those horrific attacks in Tennant Creek were revealed.

    Apparently one of the few people who missed all of this was the Opposition Leader. He claimed at the Barunga Festival this week that “whitefellas” who “come in paternalistic” have no business involving themselves in taking Aboriginal children away from their homes. He believes that indigenous Australians should be given “self-determination” on this issue. This is the solution which got us to where we are in the first place. Doesn’t Shorten realise that every year thousands of white or “non-Aboriginal” children are taken from their parents?

    When I was Social Security Minister in 1991 I visited a group of children to whom the government was providing assistance to live away from home. I had been criticised by a number of Senators, including the highly conservative Brian Harradine, that I was destroying the concept of “family”. I was accused of keeping children away from their homes which were safe havens for them. Well-meaning the social conservatives may have been, but they were quite ignorant of the ugly world which existed away from their nice suburbs and white picket fences.

    A 14-year-old girl in Melbourne had been so frequently sexually abused by her stepfather that she had run away and lived “rough” because she said that despite that lifestyle being inherently dangerous, it was far better than being raped at home on a regular basis. A 15-year-old in Sydney recounted how his mother had given him $2 when she dropped him off and told him not to come home because her new boyfriend didn’t want him around. There are plenty of happy homes but for some unfortunate kids their homes are houses of horror. How many more indigenous children will we leave in harm’s way? How many more times will the failure of State departments with responsibility for the welfare of children be hauled over the coals for failing to remove kids in danger from their home environment.

    Drugs and alcohol affect adults and children in both indigenous and non-indigenous communities but there is no doubt those problems are far worse in remote communities where there is zero prospect of getting a job. Some “whitefellas” will have to be involved if we are ever to bridge the gap. That gap is too often determined by health, school attendance and completion or housing. These are all extremely important issues but they pale in comparison to the right of children to be free from violence or sexual abuse.

    There may well be merit in the Treaty of which the Opposition Leader is talking about but the rights of those kids must come first. We don’t complain when a child at risk is taken from a home in suburbia and we need to be consistent in applying our outrage.

    Mr best advice to Bill Shorten is to stop playing up to the audience he is addressing. Bill, other audiences hear and compare notes.

    Defence inquiry uncovers evidence of possible homicide by elite Australian soldiers in Afghanistan.

    A two-year-long investigation has uncovered numerous concerns about the conduct of Australian special forces in Afghanistan, including several incidents of possible unlawful killings.

    Since May 2016, New South Wales Supreme Court Judge and Army Reserve Major General Paul Brereton has been examining claims of illegal actions during the 12-year conflict committed by members of the Special Air Services Regiment and Commando units.

    “Major General” Brereton was formerly Second-in-command of Sydney University Regiment and Training Officer of the Knox Grammar School Cadet Unit.

    In socialist countries, governments seem to bid to hold every major and minor ‘games’ event going, knowing full well that it is simply a waste of other people’s money. They take money off people to spend on feel-good entertainment, knowing that there are enough stupid people who get so caught up in the moment that they will vote for the government that has spent their money for that precise reason.

    But in true democracies, people have the power to moderate the questionable practices of elected officials:

    When labor’s idiot son little joe Ludwig was stampeded by their abc into an overnight ban on live cattle exports, the damage that cascaded through the entire Australian red meat industry was financially the same as a drought to graziers.

    A politically imposed drought, not a climatically imposed one. Fully in favour of not allowing Saudis to hire the cheapest available Pakistanis to work on the cheapest sheep export boats that can still float to move Australian sheep into a middle eastern summer. A total ban does not stop this circus from simply moving on to another source.

    Their abc still has a lot to answer for regarding their imposing of an ‘abc political drought’ on Australian red meat producers through their hysterical pressure on the out-of-his-depth little joe ludwig .

    Personally I would like damages for the live cattle lawsuit taken from their abc budget, as a lesson about the consequences if their abc go full on sheep banning next.

    This is not the first time we have seen corrupt police commissioning “rumours” in order to frame somebody. It’s what Victoria Police did to George Pell. And it worked. Several lunatics answered the ad. It is, however, the first time in our history that a government has sought to jail Diggers to placate the enemy. All being ordered by Malcolm Turnbull.

Who knows, you might even dream about Australia taking back that market with its own local slaughter and frozen beef export. And that Australian live sheep exports could also be replaced with locally slaughtered and frozen lamb exports.

    The FBI’s fractured fairytale
    By Sharyl Attkisson, opinion contributor
    — 06/10/18 03:10 PM EDT

    The views expressed by contributors are their own and not the view of The Hill

    Once upon a time, the FBI said some thugs planned to rob a bank in town. Thugs are always looking to rob banks. They try all the time. But at this particular time, the FBI was hyper-focused on potential bank robberies in this particular town.

    The best way to prevent the robbery — which is the goal, after all — would be for the FBI to alert all the banks in town. “Be on high alert for suspicious activity,” the FBI could tell the banks. “Report anything suspicious to us. We don’t want you to get robbed.”

    Instead, in this fractured fairytale, the FBI followed an oddly less effective, more time-consuming, costlier approach. It focused on just one bank. And, strangely, it picked the bank that was least likely to be robbed because nobody thought it would ever get elected president — excuse me, I mean, because it had almost no cash on hand. (Why would robbers want to rob the bank with no cash?)

    Stranger still, this specially-selected bank the FBI wanted to protect above all others happened to be owned by a man who was hated inside and outside the FBI.

    So, to protect this bank owned by the guy the FBI hated, the FBI secretly examined a list of bank employees and identified a few it claimed would be likely to help robbers — or, at least, would not stop a robbery. How did it select these targets? By profiling them based on their pasts.

    A Good Summation of Canada and the G7 Summit

    BIG PICTURE – Bottom Line: Justin and Chrystia Decided To Play Left-Wing Politics With The Canadian Economy…

    The G7 outcome was politically important to left-wing Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland. In the days leading up to the summit, their leftist political ideology took a hit when Doug Ford’s conservative movement won in the Ontario Province. Trudeau and Chrystia needed a G7 win.

    As a consequence, Justin from Canada needed U.S. President Trump to sign-on to the G7 communique, giving the summit the appearance of influence and success.

    Team Justin/Chrystia played the “ally card” diplomatically requesting G7 support. Team Trump was willing to give Team Justin/Chrystia the optics of a political win in the G7 communique as a diplomatic showing of ‘good faith‘, and set aside the larger conflict of the trade dispute for another day. However, moments after they achieved the needed validity, after gaining the U.S. G7 support, Justin/Chrystia dropped the diplomatic approach and went back to public political trade antagonism and confrontation.

    That’s the ‘stab-in-the-back’ aspect.

  47. Habib

    I don’t know why the resident trolls are getting more shrill, Trump may well be laying waste to the idiot left and their socialist imbecility, and demented alignment with atavistic head-loppers world-wide, they should be confident that Australians are far too stupid and lazy to abandon the diarchy, and incompetent, patronising, larcenous, profligate socialist mouth-breathers are guaranteed to form the next government, and continue the pandering to the feckless, lazy, thick and insane, while overseeing the decline of a potentially great nation to Sub-Saharan style nirvana.

    ROBERT De Niro got a standing ovation at the Tony Awards after dropping the F-bomb on stage.

    The actor was there to introduce a performance by Bruce Springsteen but had a quick message to deliver beforehand.

    “I’m going to say one thing: F**k Trump!” De Niro said as the crowd went wild.

    The comment was such a hit with the awards show attendees that the actor then repeated the message again.

    “It’s no longer down with Trump, it’s F**k Trump,” he said.

    Profiles in courage.

    De Niro’s career has been in the shitter for 20 years. He’s now reduced to getting fish tossed to him at leftist cult gatherings.

    Royal SNUB! Australia’s Labour opposition calls to ABOLISH Queen’s birthday public holiday

    AUSTRALIA’s opposition Labour government in New South Wales has called for the Queen’s Birthday public holiday to be replaced by one which celebrates the country’s “60,000 years of Indigenous history”.

    The Australian – NSW Labor wants to ditch Queen’s birthday for indigenous day

    The Queen’s Birthday public holiday would be replaced with a day recognising indigenous history, if Labor wins government in NSW next year.

    Opposition leader Luke Foley announced the plan today, saying it would be “another step in the process of reconciliation”.

    It would also be in addition to a Labor commitment to fly the Aboriginal flag on the Sydney Harbour Bridge every day of the year.

    “We must acknowledge the special place the First Peoples occupy in the story of our state and nation,” Mr Foley said in a statement.

    He said a Labor government would also establish a treaty process in NSW to provide a truthful basis for reconciliation.

    Opposition spokesman for Aboriginal affairs David Harris said the public holiday step was a small change to acknowledge the past.

    “It’s important for us to build on the existing relationship with the NSW Aboriginal community to empower them to achieve lasting generational change,” he said.

    Kamilaroi woman Cheree Toka began the campaign to fly the Aboriginal flag on the Sydney Harbour Bridge every day and her online petition has attracted more than 87,000 signatures.

    The flag is currently raised 15 days a year — on Australia Day and during reconciliation and NAIDOC weeks.

    Ms Toka hopes to present her petition to state parliament in the final sitting week in November.

    Last month, Mr Foley was forced to apologise over comments he made about “white flight” occurring in Sydney’s western suburbs, which prompted widespread condemnation from both sides of politics.

    He was accused of “disgusting racist dog whistling” by Victorian Energy, Environment and Climate Change Minister Lily D’Ambrosio who Labor deserved far better.

    From the Comments

    – ust to show the ALP has lost the plot.

    – Luke Foley is most probably a fairly reasonable bloke. However, on this issue he has had a complete brain explosion.

    Not going to happen Luke……go back to sleep.

    – He really doesn’t want to win.

    – Another fabricated distraction from the real issues facing our state & nation as a whole. Why not focus on some of the pressing issues that require urgent attention. Securing our power grid would be top of my list. No power, no industry, no jobs & no welfare.

    Wont need public holidays then, no matter what we are celebrating.

    – History is essentially a written thing. I don’t think there is any indigneous history. Sure, there are traditions, and experiences, but what are we celebrating? A past full of misogyny, abuse of children and women, internecine warfare and cruelty? I don’t see the point. How about we celebrate the Brits bringing civilisation to all (notwithstanding their own particular brand of savagery towards convicts).

    – nine is running a poll on this subject, currently 87% against. Exactly who do Labor represent again?

    – Unbelievable hypocrisy.

    Eventually he stopped shouting long enough for her to say, there had to be a claim before he could get a claim number.

    There were Afghans. All living at the same address, all had the same doctor, all had the same lawyer and all had a workers compensation claim for a bad back.

    Palermo defies populist coalition to offer safe port to migrant ship
    Matteo Salvini had refused access to vessel with 629 on board after closing all Italian ports to rescue boats

    In defiance of orders from the new Italian populist government that ports were closed to migrants from Libya, Leoluca Orlando, the mayor of Palermo, said he would allow a rescue boat with 629 on board to dock in the Sicilian capital.

    In the first evidence of the new government’s hardline approach, the interior minister and leader of the far right League, Matteo Salvini, said on Sunday that all Italian ports were closed to the rescue boat, Aquarius.

    Writing on his Facebook page, Salvini foreshadowed a wider EU dispute about responsibility for migrants from Africa saying: “Malta takes in nobody. France pushes people back at the border, Spain defends its frontier with weapons. From today, Italy will also start to say no to human trafficking, no to the business of illegal immigration.”

    Canadian Grand Prix: model Winnie Harlow ends race a lap early

    The Australian
    10:37AM June 11, 2018

    Formula One will review its procedures after the Canadian Grand Prix ended in confusion and embarrassment when a celebrity waved the chequered flag a lap too soon.

    The gaffe did not affect the outcome of the race, which was won by Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel, but the German said he was left double-checking his lap counter while checking in with his pit before carrying on to run the full 70 laps.

    But the German’s 50th career victory which left him on 121 points after seven races, was marked with some consternation when the chequered flag was waved a lap early by model Winnie Harlow.

    “Fortunately we had radio, fortunately I had the lap count in the car and the pitboard was accurate – but if you lose radio and maybe the pitboard is not there, then you back off,” said Vettel after notching his 50th career win. “I was just worried, I told them also on the last lap, then people don’t jump on the track, waving flags and celebrating, because we’re still going at full pace.”

    Mason Cox kicked five goals and starred in Collingwood’s win over Melbourne today.

    Cox is an American who tried out for Collingwood around about the time Jarryd Haynes tried out for the NFL. I doubt he ever had a dream to play AFL, however he started slowly (as you would expect) and without the hype of Hayne but has developed into a very good AFL player.

    Great story.

    How appropriate. Luckily most bogan deadbeats can walk there as their VN Commodore is up on cement blocks in the housing commission front yard. Uncle Billy Peanut-Head would have had to look up where it was on Google Maps.

    Mounted Queensland Abos carrying .575 Martini- Henry’s must have been a fearsome sight on the Veldt

    There’s no such weapon, the correct designation is the 577/450 Martini Henry.

    Death Giraffes Beef ala South Australian drug dealer:
    Ingredients:
    Cassarole beef, 1 Kg.
    Tomatoe puree, 750 ml.
    Tomatoes. Or any other toes you enjoy the taste of. (Sliced) A few.
    Three large sprigs of rosemary (the herb, not the girl).
    Two cloves garlic.
    Butter.
    Spuds.
    Any other thing you find in the fridge you want to see stewed for hours.
    ..
    Procedure:
    Brown the beef in a frypan. Stick everything except the spuds and the butter in a crock pot and cook until it fall apart spontaneously, about eight hours.
    If you don’t have a slow cooker/ crock pot, I can’t help you. Go take a damn good look at yourself and ask yourself what the hell you’re doing with your life.
    Roast spuds until golden brown.
    Add a little flour and two huge gobs of butter into the beef. Simmer a bit longer.
    Ladle exploded beef concoction over spuds, which should be resting sexily in thecmiddle of the plate, not just plonked uncaringly anywhere.

    A Sydney professor has become the first Australian to win a prestigious science award worth more than $820,000. Martin Green, from the University of New South Wales, was one of two people to share this year’s Global Energy Prize, which honours outstanding achievements in research and technology addressing energy challenges. Professor Green is often referred to as the “Father of Photovoltaics”. He was honoured for having “revolutionised the efficiency and costs of solar photovoltaics, making this now the lowest cost option for bulk electricity supply”.
    Just not at night. Or on cloudy days. Or when they get dusty. And so on.

    Im really enjoying the emergence of Johannes Leak. The loss of his dad was quite emotional for me despite not ever meeting Bill. It just felt like he was a fixture in my life. Every Sat morning coffee just about was spent with Bill. Anyway, the emergence of Johannes is such an unexpected nice surprise. And i am glad the education gimp lives on. He was one of my favourites.

    love the one with the full head of purple hair too. Mrs Entropy works in community care and reckons a purple hair do is a clear sign of mental illness.

    Another grossly defamatory attack on my character. I did spend 3 days in Adelaide once and the drive north out of the city is truly awful. Luckily we were heading to Clare and surrounds which is actually quite pleasant.

    You can’t miss it: on the left as you drive up to the Barossa.

    But then Bill probably catches a helicopter up when he’s in Adelaide.

    What an extraordinary world we live in where certain people think Zoe Danielle’s insights are of such import that it requires taxpayers to fly her half way around the world to bring them to us.

    I guess not having to pay the bills to do so obviously enters the equation too. #TheirALPBC

    Full on Trump Derangement Syndrome on The Dumb this evening, led by Peter Hartcher, who can’t grasp that maintaining a steel industry might actually be a legitimate security concern, and psychiatrist & honourable Frightbat Ian Hickey, who proceeded to diagnose Trump with several disorders and make gratuitous remarks about historic US foreign policy, about which he knows zip.

    Any agreement that doesn’t address gay marriage and climate change won’t meet with Zoe’s approval.
