    Germany to consider ‘educational state-funded feminist p0rn0graphy’ to combat s3xist stereotypes

    Germany is considering making state-funded feminist p0rn and broadcasting it to the public to combat s3xist stereotypes.

    The material, which would include ‘fat, skinny, young and old people’ will be available on the websites of public broadcasters ARD and ZDF, if the idea goes ahead.

    In the proposal, the SPD wrote: ‘Mainstream p0rn generally shows s3xist and racial stereotypes in which consent is not a theme and certain “optimal” body types are made as standard.’

    ‘In these films, s3x seems more like a performance or competitive sport: everything seems to work right away, there is no communication between the performers, no trying out, failure and trying out new things.’

    According to the SPD, it influences modern society in a negative way as youths have ‘unrealistic imaginations of s3xual life’.

    However the systemic conniving, betrayals and cover ups allowing the terrible abuse to thrive over time is deeply shocking. That speaks to a very well entrenched and powerful cohort within the Church that facilitated this deviancy. Remembering that expectations of our Church are of the highest order.

    Makka, you really have been swayed. Systemic conniving or fuckup ? I say fuckup.

    Bishops had no understanding. Peter Hollingworth didn’t and lost his job. No one did. Cops swept it under the carpet like everyone else. Our local RSL President got away with it. So did Sir William Slim.

    It didn’t take a powerful conspiracy; it was ignorance, and the Catholic bishops were like everyone else back then.

  4. Makka

    but I don’t think the cover up was as intentionally evil as people suggest.

    Well I disagree. In so many cases the cover up was for the purpose of avoiding exposure and not just those about to be caught. I mean bigger rats in the nest. In other words, those facilitating cover ups were facilitating the evil to continue just to protect themselves. Sacrificing kids innocence and their lives to keep some deviant creep from going down. We are talking about the trusted clergy, although certainly by no means all.

    Talking down this level of betrayal does no good at all IMO.

    ‘Thanks, but I was interested in the remuneration of the Tribunal members themselves.
    12 Fees and allowances’

    John, the short answer is – I don’t know.

    The Tribunal Act states:

    ‘ A member and any person appointed under subsection 11(2) to assist the Tribunal shall be paid such fees and allowances as are prescribed.’

    but I can’t yet find any reference to the Tribunal in the Determination that sets the salary and allowances for part – time office holders, which the three Tribunal members are.

    As a young bloke in the late eighties I met an aboriginal musician after he played his gig in a blues band at Settlers. Very nice bloke that I was stoked to chat to. The point is that after a short time he mentioned the term “stolen generation” and asked if I’d heard of that, which I hadn’t.
    So he then said something like “you’re going to hear about it and let me tell you that the story you will hear will be wrong. They say we were stolen and I was “stolen” but I was from a place that hadn’t been good and then was at a great home with loving family and so much choice and am so happy this all happened”.

    Hopefully he still feels the same way cause he was quite passionate. I did actually end up hearing the term again to my surprise but twenty years later.

    But the dazzling proliferation of claimants and allegations is common in spurious sex abuse cases. Arnold Friedman had over a dozen accusers. The McMartin Preschool case generated 321 charges from forty-one children. We now know that every charge was a lie and every child was a liar. Yet today, with the children now well into their thirties, many of them still insist that their charges were true. In Wenatchee, Washington, in 1994, forty-three adults were arrested on 29,726 counts of sex abuse alleged by sixty children, aged nine to thirteen. In 1995, every last charge was dropped.

    Sometime tomorrow, US Department of Justice inspector general Michael Horowitz will report on the FBI and DOJ handling of the investigation of Hillary Clinton in the run-up to the 2016 election.
    The FBI and DoJ investigated Hillary Clinton’s misuse of a private server and reckless use of classified material when she was Secretary of State.
    Will Horowitz describe the investigators as “grossly negligent” to an extent consistent with the statutory requirement for criminal intent?
    Or will he merely criticise them for being “extremely careless in their handling of a very sensitive, highly classified investigation” and express his view that, except for Comey and McCabe, no charges are appropriate?
    Why do I have a feeling that history might be repeating on itself?

    Mueller on Tuesday asked a federal judge in Washington for an order to protect voluminous evidence sought by lawyers for Concord Management and Consulting LLC, one of three companies and 13 Russian nationals charged in a February indictment alleging election meddling via social media. Prosecutors have uncovered evidence of other individuals and entities who are “continuing to engage” in similar activities.

    Our ABC (fully funded by the Australian Government) meddled in the US elections via social media. Plenty of proof of that across our $1 billion Government funded media platforms. They uniformly mocked Trump. Hell, Australia was the biggest international donor to the Clinton Foundation. The Labor Party have already been fined in a US Court for interfering via providing staff directly to the HRC campaign. You also have Alexander Downer in the mix.

    As someone pointed out earlier, you then get down to all these Australian Government funded leftist groups like “Get Up” who actively campaigned for Hillary. There would be a pretty long list.

    And yet, the CIA/FBI are hunting down the Russians, whilst all the evidence points to a dossier that came straight from the DNC.

    A simple observation. I can’t recall an American President (Republican or Democrat) display such a “cold shoulder” towards Australia as the Trump administration has. I suspect it’s for good reason.

    max, you are quoting and commenting from an article by a shrink. A lot of it seems to be in defense of queers in and out of the priesthood. I’m not buying the equivalency of a homo priest protected by a powerful organisation in a position of high community trust and a homo individual when it comes to child abuse.

    From your article;

    Although the vast majority of victims are boys (80 percent, according to the 2004 John Jay study and other studies), and the Catholic Church has a large number of priests who are homosexual in orientation (22-45 percent, according to a variety of studies and reports), homosexuality doesn’t make men sex offenders. No evidence exists that suggest sexual orientation, in and of itself, makes someone at risk to commit sex crimes against children or others. Sexual orientation is not a risk factor for crime.

    The Church allows queers to gather in the preisthood in very large numbers, boys represent 80% of those m0lested.

    No problem here folks.

    Hhmmmmmm…

    ..so this ‘high profile female journalist’ managed to scoop other news agencies with exposes about ‘Trump-Russia collusion’ because she was sleeping with the source of the leaks from the Senate Intelligence Committee, James Wolfe….

    Moms to Daughters: Don’t Be Ali Watkins

    The case of Ali Watkins offers mothers an opening to have an uncomfortable yet necessary conversation with their daughters:

    Don’t sleep your way to the top.

    One would think in this #metoo, female empowerment, equal pay, don’t-even-tell-me-my-dress-is-pretty climate of workplace taboos, that conversation would be unnecessary. Twentysomething women and their successors have been programmed to be independent of men—especially white, older men. Our daughters’ internal soundtrack is a nonstop loop of Katy Perry tunes and Hillary Clinton speeches: “I’m With Him” just doesn’t have the same appeal.

    So, it’s surprising to discover that young liberal women are still getting ahead the old-fashioned way. And not only is this behavior accepted, it is rewarded by the same news media overlords who have fueled the gender wars; boasted about their fealty to women in the workplace; and ridiculed powerful men preying on ambitious young women.

    Web of Deceit
    Ali Watkins, 26, is a New York Times reporter mentioned in a federal indictment handed down last week against a former staffer for the congressional committee who is investigating the Trump-Russia collusion conspiracy. James Wolfe, 58, was the head of security for the Senate Intelligence Committee until last December; his main job was to protect classified information.

    While Watkins was a college intern at a D.C. news organization, the two started having an affair that lasted more than three years. Wolfe was interviewed by federal officials as part of the FBI’s ongoing investigation into criminal leaks of classified information to the media. When he was asked about his relationship and contact with Watkins and other reporters, he lied. He is now charged with three counts of making a false statement to a government agency.

    But the indictment and follow-up reporting reveal some interesting, if not alarming, tidbits. Watkins’s sex-for-scoops arrangement allegedly began when she was an intern at McClatchy in 2013; she went to work there full-time after her graduation from Temple University in 2014. That same year, Watkins and two other reporters were Pulitzer Prize finalists for their “timely coverage of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on CIA torture, demonstrating initiative and perseverance in overcoming government efforts to hide the details.” Of course, we now know she was carrying on with Wolfe at the time. Some initiative. Some perseverance.

    That propelled Watkins to the newsrooms of some of the most influential media organizations in the country, including BuzzFeed, Politico, and the Times, where she covered national security issues often related to the committee’s work. (In an interview with her alma mater earlier this year after her ascendancy to the Times, Watkins attributed her success to “showing up at the odd hours when no one else is showing up. Showing up all the time and eventually running into somebody who knows something.”)

    Well, she was right about that. According to the indictment, she and Wolfe “exchanged tens of thousands of electronic communications, often including daily texts and phone calls, and they frequently met in person at a variety of locations including Hart Senate Office Building stairwells, restaurants, and [her] apartment.” Her “dogged” reporting technique (as one defender described her methods) also won the admiration of her lover, 32-years her senior: “I’ve watched your career take off even before you ever had a career in journalism. . . . I always tried to give you as much information that I could and to do the right thing with it so you could get that scoop before anyone else . . . I always enjoyed the way that you would pursue a story, like nobody else was doing in my hallway. I felt like I was part of your excitement and was always very supportive of your career and the tenacity that you exhibited to chase down a good story.”

    Sordid Details in the Indictment
    It’s unclear who was zooming who in this relationship. (Wolfe apparently still is married to his wife who retired from the FBI in 2016.) But this sex swamp yielded benefits for both lovers: She enjoyed a “meteoric rise in Washington journalism” while he helped legitimize the political plotline that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government to influence the 2016 presidential election. In the process, this shady pair did not care who they hurt or what laws they possibly violated: One of their victims was Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page.

    The indictment alleges that in March 2017, after receiving a classified document related to Page, Watkins and Wolfe exchanged 82 text messages and had a 28-minute phone conversation that evening. On April 3, Watkins posted an article in BuzzFeed confirming Page met with a Russian intelligence official in 2013: “The revelation of Page’s connection to Russian intelligence—which occurred more than three years before his association with Trump—is the most clearly documented contact to date between Russian intelligence and someone in Trump’s orbit. It comes as federal investigators probe whether Trump’s campaign-era associates—including Page—had any inappropriate contact with Russian officials or intelligence operatives during the course of the election.”

    Watkins appeared on MSNBC that evening, where host Rachel Maddow praised her “jaw-dropping scoop about the Trump campaign.” She wrote numerous stories about Trump-Russia collusion, often citing the committee or a “high level US intelligence official.”

    Wolfe also scooped other reporters on news about Page, including forwarding his contact information and alerting one reporter that Page had received a subpoena. (Page emailed the committee to complain about the leaks.) The pair apparently broke up in December 2017, which is when Wolfe was interviewed by the FBI and Watkins was hired by the Times.

    Mainstream Media Circle the Wagons
    But here’s the real rub: Watkins’s bosses at BuzzFeed, Politico, and the Times admit they knew about her affair with Wolfe but continued to allow her to cover that beat without disclosing her personal conflict to their readers. In the ultimate display of hubris and ignorance, Ben Smith, BuzzFeed’s editor-in-chief, condemned the FBI investigation and not the participants’ unethical conduct: Smith called the probe “an unjustified leak hunt” and accused the FBI of going to “dangerous lengths.” (It’s ok now to criticize law enforcement if you’re keeping score at home.) The Times took a similar approach, objecting instead to the seizure of Watkins’s cell and email records as a violation of constitutional protections.

    Sure. Tell it to Carter Page.

    It’s hard to believe this sordid tale is an outlier; undoubtedly our moral superiors in the news media and ruling political class who lecture us about female empowerment and white male patriarchy are overlooking, if not rewarding, the conduct of many more versions of Ali Watkins and James Wolfe.
    So, moms, warn your daughters not to take the Ali Watkins career path. It’s destructive, deceptive and usually ends in disaster. Do it the really old-fashioned way: Earn it.

    Amazon Gives In To Muslim Empolyee Ramadan Demands

    Amazon has given in to demands from Muslim employees who requested various perks and work changes during Ramadan, which also coincides with Amazon’s biggest sale of the year.

    According to Bloomberg, the fact that Ramadan was at the same time as Amazon Prime Day this year was “creating tension” among employees in “Minnesota’s Twin Cities region, where activists say Amazon.com Inc. employs more than 1,000 East African Muslim immigrants at four warehouses.”

    Employees and other activists protested at the Eagan, Minnesota, delivery center, where they chanted in Somali and handed Amazon management a list of demands for Ramadan, which reportedly included a “call to curb their heavy workloads while they’re fasting and to let them take time off without penalty for Eid, the festival that ends Ramadan.”

    Amazon announced that they would provide prayer rooms for employees at work and “would ease up on employees’ quotas for the duration of the fast.”

    …In a statement, employee Aaisha Jama declared, “That showed us that we are very powerful,” while employee Abdirahman Ali added, “We don’t want to pick between our wages and our faith.”

    Unforgettable

  56. As attorneys for Michael Cohen rush to meet Judge Kimba Wood’s Friday deadline to complete a privilege review of over 3.7 million documents seized in the April 9 raids of Cohen’s New York properties and law office, a source representing this matter has disclosed to ABC News that the law firm handling the case for Cohen is not expected to represent him going forward.

    To date, Cohen has been represented by Stephen Ryan and Todd Harrison of the Washington and New York firm, McDermott, Will & Emery LLP.

    No replacement counsel has been identified as of this time.

    Cohen, now with no legal representation, is likely to cooperate with federal prosecutors in New York, sources said. This development, which is believed to be imminent, will likely hit the White House, family members, staffers and counsels hard.

    And we wonder why children are not learning to read at the same rates as even 50 years ago. Get a load of this semi-literate pronouncement by one of our leading academics:

    Dr Paul Gardner, senior lecturer in Literacy Education at WA’s Curtin University, said the reading wars had caused much tension and conflict in education.

    “Most literacy advocates would advocate a broad, mixed approach to the teaching of early reading, acknowledging the importance of phonics as one strategy in that approach,” Dr Gardner said.

    “I think it has become politicised because there is a particular strand of people that are pushing this particular approach as a panacea — it is not a panacea, it is not the golden bullet.

    This literacy ‘expert’ doesn’t know that the term he is groping for is silver bullet. What’s more, panacea has a very different meaning from silver bullet – in fact, it’s almost the opposite.

    Not surprisingly, he regards phonics as a relatively minor strand in the weave of literacy, not wanting to throw his fellow academics who have presided over the degeneration of teaching it for decades.

    It never ceases to amaze me just how mediocre most academics are, even in their own field. Most Cats and kittehs would run rings around them in terms of literacy, not to mention both general and specialised knowledge.

    The NT News gets stuck into Turnbull:

    The front page has a giant photo and headline:

    It’s been four months since the rape of a two-year-old girl sparked a national crisis and nine months since he set foot inside the Territory. This missing-in-action Prime Minister for the East Coast has shown he …SIMPLY DOES NOT CARE

    and then inside:

    PRIME Minister Malcolm Turnbull — who has not set foot in the NT for 278 days — has finally addressed the rape of a two-year-old girl in Tennant Creek which happened four months ago.

    Mr Turnbull was last in the NT in September, when he attended the CLP conference in Darwin. He did not take part in any engagements other than party-affiliated events.

    He did not visit in the aftermath of Cyclone Marcus, the worst to hit Darwin since Tracy in 1974.

    His office didn’t respond to questions put to him by the NT News as to when he would next be in the NT. Questions about the Commonwealth’s contribution to the NT’s child abuse crisis also went unanswered.

    But at a press conference in Canberra to outline his Government’s response to the child sex abuse royal commission, Mr Turnbull addressed the rape publicly for the first time. He put the blame on the NT Government.

    “I have discussed this issue with the Chief Minister. Clearly they have not done enough to stop what has already occurred,” he said.

    The girl and her family were subject to 52 notifications to child protection authorities in the 16 years leading up to the rape, but the girl remained in the care of her mother.

    Mr Turnbull said the safety of children must always come first.

    “Any abuse of children in any context, in a family or in an institution is unacceptable, absolutely unacceptable,” he said. “We are certainly supporting the investigation of this. It’s a law enforcement issue, a children’s protection issue within the jurisdiction of the NT Government.”

    Chief Minister Michael Gunner said his Government took responsibility for the fact the child was allowed to remain in a dangerous situation, but pointed out the Prime Minister had not made a financial contribution to the royal commission into youth justice he called.

    Mr Turnbull was pressed on the issue of the child removal rates for indigenous children and whether too many or too few children were being removed.

    “The safety of children has to be paramount,” he said. “Some children are in unsafe conditions, of course they are. The safety of children must always be put in the forefront.

    “That’s the duty of parents, of family and the duty of neighbours. If you believe a child is being abused, don’t turn a blind eye.”

    The Prime Minister’s comments came just days after Opposition Leader Bill Shorten said too many Aboriginal children were being removed from their families, and urged greater engagement with Aboriginal people to fix the NT’s child protection issues.

    “The last thing they need is some know-it-all whitefella to come in paternalistic, as has been happening for 200 years and say, ‘listen you’re just children and we’ll just fix it all for you’,” Mr Shorten said.

    “Clearly they have not done enough to stop what has already occurred”

    In my experience , those absolutely incompetent with dealing with the outside world, who are confused and simply idiotic when it comes to common sense and day to day life, have “Prof” before their name.
    In the tourism game, we all used to look down our manifests before a tour, and roll our eyes and shake our heads if we saw that on the list.
    Unfortunately, that was born from experience.
    You do get cynical.
    We used to have Christmas “Nuff nuff” tours.
    Relatives would send their old uncles and slobbering inbred relatives away over Christmas to do a camping/4wd (no A/C in those days) trek through the 40 degree desert to keep them from the Christmas table and , well, if they died while out there, the will would be a good chrissy present for them.
    I’d rather do those tours than take a couple of professors away.

    And then since when has the English subject been speech and drama?

    In the Dark Ages when I was in high school, the English curriculum was split into four parts – English, Novel, Poetry and Drama. The last three involved the study of texts (the degree of difficulty graded according to class), usually three a year to correspond with terms. English – grammar, essays, critical evaluation of advertising and media, composition, debating and a little bit of the history of the language.

    No performances (except the debates which could be very entertaining).

    Reflecting on the breadth and depth of the work, I suppose it would now be considered university level.

    Exhaust-ing ordeal: Woman gets head stuck in tailpipe

    WINSTEAD, Minn. — A young woman endured an exhaust-ing ordeal when she got her head stuck in a truck’s oversized tailpipe at a Minnesota music festival.

    Firefighters used a power saw to free the woman from her predicament at last weekend’s Winstock Music Festival in Winsted, about 40 miles west of Minneapolis. Video of the rescue was posted on Facebook.

    KARE-TV reports that it’s unknown how she ended up with her head in the tailpipe, but alcohol may have been a factor: The McLeod County Sheriff’s Office says she was cited for underage drinking and escorted out.

    You get paid for doing nothing’: Warren Mundine calls for an end to destructive Aboriginal welfare payments
    2 MINS AGO
    ALAN JONES WAREN MUNDINE

    Aboriginal leader Warren Mundine AO has hit out at the pandering to indigenous Australians, saying welfare handouts have got to stop.

    Mr Mundine has had enough of politicians failing to address the real issues facing his people.

    Speaking with Alan Jones, he says he’s also had enough of Aboriginals whingeing, rather than getting out and achieving for themselves.

    “I just find it bizarre that you’ve got all these people complaining.

    “Most of them have benefited from programs that help them get into university, help them through high school, help them with home loans, help them with career paths and yet here they are the biggest whingers I’ve ever seen.

    “I look at my parents and my grandparents who had to work hard. You look at all the old Aboriginal people in the 1970s. They actually could not believe that you get paid for doing nothing.

    “They said this will destroy aboriginal people and guess what, all that welfare payment, all that sitdown money is now destroying Aboriginal communities.”

    Mr Mundine reiterated is disgust at Opposition Leader Bill Shorten’s claims that too many Aboriginal children are being removed from their families.

    “The first thing that we should be doing is the protection of the child.

    “They talk about ‘oh they lose their culture, they lose their language’. Well, what sort of culture and language are they using while they’re being abused.”

    It’s so bizarre. The Left, when they are not metoo-ing, are sleeping their way to the top, or taking advantage of those who will, just like the good old days.

    In fairness to the unfunny male ‘comedian’ from the ABC who is the latest to be dragged through the mud, I read an account by his accuser (sorry, can’t remember where) and it has echoes of many of the female accusers. He admits that he didn’t actually say no, or resist. When he went to the cops, they very reasonably said that if he didn’t say no or resist, he had no case. But he still feels aggrieved, and now he is getting his revenge.

    It reminds me of another case I read about recently, where a wannabe starlet who never made it complained about the casting couch and some Hollywood big shot. She freely admits that she went back to his place and his hotel again and again voluntarily, and it wasn’t because he looked like Brad Pitt. She wanted to trade. It didn’t work out, so now she is claiming to have been abused and exploited.

    The metoo-ers and their ilk debase the currency for people who have genuinely been abused and assaulted.

    What if these trolleys were also equipped with resistance controls to incorporate physical activity into your daily shop, with personalised and tailored nutritious food marketing?

    The Health Nazis at it again.

    Or if Google’s ocular scanning devices were incorporated into trolley handles to provide you with a health check, simply by scanning the retina of your eye?

    How does that work?

    Scientists from Google and its health-tech subsidiary Verily have discovered a new way to assess a person’s risk of heart disease using machine learning. By analyzing scans of the back of a patient’s eye, the company’s software is able to accurately deduce data, including an individual’s age, blood pressure, and whether or not they smoke. This can then be used to predict their risk of suffering a major cardiac event — such as a heart attack — with roughly the same accuracy as current leading methods.

    The “current leading methods” are not bad but they are far from perfect. And (from memory), a far proportion of CVD risk is based on sex, age and height, none of which (obviously) you can do much about.

    The algorithm potentially makes it quicker and easier for doctors to analyze a patient’s cardiovascular risk, as it doesn’t require a blood test. But, the method will need to be tested more thoroughly before it can be used in a clinical setting.

    The algorithm is not good enough to use in a clinical setting but the bozo wants to put it in a shopping trolley?

Such things were part of what they were fighting against, but hardly top of mind, if there at all. These brave soldiers had just been to hell and back in various real and bloody battles against the Nazis. The flags here are not triumphs about what the Nazi’s stood for, they are symbols of conquest over those fighting for the Nazi program. Soldiers have always wanted to signal their successes – from tearing down flags off the Reischstag to holding up the flags of captured enemies to say gotcha.

    I think Ronery’s right this one time, the flag looks Photoshopped. The redness of the flag – the color- is too bright in comparison to the other colors in the pic.

    Photoshopping can be identified. The ABC would have checked before publishing the photo as genuine. Surely?

  140. JC

    The intention in the pics of the WW2 pics was hugely different. Holding up those flags was meant to portray victory over the enemy – as in they captured their flag. Hugely different.

    The Afghan wat pic is a fake and wouldn’t be surprised in the least if the pic was touched up in the ABC studio.

    And how convenient, the fake pic shows up after talk of the inquiry to make the SAS into a feminized organization.

    Take a look at the pic again snoop. The flag’s color is way too bright to the rest of the coloration in the pic. It’s fake.

  143. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    Just scrolled up to the 2012 pic in Afghanistan. It’s probably factual, did fly for a while, and was taken down when commanders saw it. To me it simply says the army needs to train its men better in history and less in gender, so that they can see symbols in time depth, not just as something oppositional and symbolizing a heavy hand about to fall. Don’t forget the young Prince Harry also displayed a swastika armband as a fancy dress.

    No big deal in either case and the powers-that-be acted in both cases to point out the mistake to the users.

    The commentariat consensus is that, true to form, stumblebum Trump has blown it; given Kim legitimacy without anything specific in return, set the stage for Kim to renege on any commitment to denuclearise, and confounded the US’s allies for no return.

    However, it is not immediately clear why Kim would fuck around.

    He is currently looking at an opportunity to come in from the international political cold, preside over the transformation of the Nork economy, provide unlimited scope for his elite supporters to feast on the incoming aid – and, down the track, perhaps end up as President of a reunited Korea.

    Played correctly, he can do all this with the security of heavy China and South Korea investment backing up whatever security guarantee the US might give. No Obama-style betrayal and Gaddafi death-in-a-ditch necessary here.

    Sure he could pull a swifty, get sanctions lifted, and then cunningly backtrack on whatever commitments he might have given – just like Dear Old Dad did. But what is the payoff for him then?

    He embarrasses the US President; gets a couple of years of increased trade; a touch of domestic glory; and stays true to juche principles. But he guarantees that he will be an international pariah for the rest of his perilous career in charge of a bark-eating nation.

    He still owns his nukes/ICBM’s of course, but he still can’t use them (if he actually can) without the certain knowledge his regime will be over. And he will face sanctions and the threat of US military intervention like never before.

    Trump seems to have taken rather commercial, transactional steps to lock this in. The Summit agreement provides a clear joint commitment to immediacy, but no time line or specifics – which provides Kim with the wriggle room to deal with his internal politics, and Trump/Pompeo/US with the ability to call bullshit at any time if the Norks procrastinate.

    Trump has unconditionally given Kim, China and Russia their starting point demand – suspension of War Games with S.Korea. It is a useful reward for Kim’s internal politics. However, if it becomes necessary to boot Kim as a bad actor, China and Russia are both invested in the failure and have a much more difficult task in opposing imposition of ramped-up economic/military sanctions.

    It all seems pretty far from the narrative.
    But then, I’m not a North Korea expert, or Stan Grant.

    That photo is so stupid it has to be doctored.

    My first thought when I saw it was that the flag stood out a little too much – but not really having much experience in photography and whatnot I was content to wait whether and until someone better skilled commented.

    It is made for the ABC hivemind – they love smearing the ADF as psychotic hate-fueled fascists. I am sure there are plenty of them who believe they are Nazis – just that in the photograph they thought no one would find out.

    Not sure who else it would impress. The locals would not be the most scholarly lot and I expect few of them really understand the full import of the symbol. Those who did understand would either not care (foreign war, far away and in the past) or even empathise with the holocaust stuff.

    I expect there would be other troops, and allied troops, who would have a problem with it.

    In any event, whether it was some daggy prank or some such thing I doubt it is what the ABC is strongly hinting.

    But the ABC is very suspicious of the ADF. There are all sorts of strange things they are sure they get up to, but they cunningly hide them on battlefields or on patrol while being shot at.

    This abuse has been going on for decades, some might say 40000 years. Since the government took over responsibility for the former missions through funding and policy prescriptions since t he early 70s they have to have known what was going on under their noses. They have a whole government department set up for “the benefit of Aboriginal people.”

    The Royal Commission specifically excluded these communities and the bureaucrats from scrutiny. The reports that do come to public notice are horrific in their nature. This is the tip of the iceberg. The RC was dealing with the reaction by institutions to abuse that occurred decades ago. This stuff is still occurring as I type.

    Idiot letter of the day from the Oz:

    It is no wonder Kim Jong-un is smiling happily following the Singapore summit. North Korea has already developed the technology to build atomic bombs, and possibly hydrogen bombs. Notwithstanding his background in construction, Donald Trump does not seem to understand the building process. It starts with documented plans, drawings and specifications down to every last detail of what goes into the building. The same would apply to an atomic bomb.

    No matter what deal is struck, these plans and specifications will most certainly be safely locked away in a vault somewhere in North Korea. Nobody can stop that from happening. If nuclear weapons are needed later, they can be built.

    The trade-off is no more joint military exercises between US and South Korean forces, the lifting of economic sanctions and the economic resurrection of North Korea. This has to be the dumbest deal ever struck.

    So the flag was flown in 2007.
    Critical to know was it before or after the election to decide whether to blame Howard or Rudd.
    Answers needed immediately.

    Why are people assuming that flag pic hasn’t been doctored. Don’t ever trust something that comes through their ABC.

    If it is doctored, it has been done by someone with some knowledge and skill as the jpeg artefacts are at the same level in the flag as elsewhere in the image.

    Nor would the jpeg image processing algorithm do much with chrominance resolution over such a minuscule part of the image, especially in an ’07 camera.

    How would you feel if the ADF flew the ISIS flag?

    About as bad as I feel about Australian citizens fighting under the ISIS banner, which is what that would be.

    Now if the rumour of an ADF soldier flying a swastika is a big deal (and it is if confirmed) then why isn’t the reality of Australians fighting for ISIS a monstrously bigger deal?

    We’ve seen the volume of Fakenews that’s come out about Trump and the Wussian Callushion…. the so called Dossier. Why trust anything the ABC has quoting this or that source and assuming that pic is real? The left in this country are equally as dishonest as in the US. Don’t trust a single thing they say unless it’s verifiable. And by verifiable I don’t mean the top brass gays & lesbians currently running the ADF and certainly not the ABC.

    The S.A.S can fly any flag they want. As long as they kill Taliban and ISIS I don’t give a toss.

  228. CL was prescient last week. The entire urban bugman class have been mobilized to destroy the SAS and Commando Regiments. Every institution that is a bulwark of the traditional values has/ is being targeted for transformation. Nothing is safe. What is openly discussed in Australia 2018 would have been considered absurd or idiotic only 20 years ago. We have passed the crossroads. We are well past it.

  229. C.L.

    Every single leaked story in the obvious set-up of our special forces over the past two weeks has appeared at the ABC. All of this material is coming from the ADF’s Homo Command. The ABC is now running this end-note to their special forces ‘reports’:

    My advice to special forces is to flood the ABC with all sorts of ‘revelations’.
    Keep them just this side of preposterous.
    It’s confidential. Go for it.

    Oh but lets trust the ABC to report accurately.

    hospital corners next, after studying blankets vs doonas. 🙂

    If it’s any help, I have a doctorate in fitting a doona cover from the Deakin Polytechnic (Western Ring-road Campus.)

    Fair point.

  233. Oh but lets trust the ABC to report accurately.

    No, people are getting lost in the weeds here. Whether or not the Nazi flag was flown is irrelevant. If it was it’s nothing more than a disciplinary offense that should have been dealt with by SAS command. What we should be focussing on is the drip-drip of allegations against the SAS, etc. over the last couple of weeks, which seem to indicate a concerted effort by people in the ADF, in the political class, and in the media, against the SAS/ Commando Regiments.

    Proof SAS/ Commando Regiments doing a good job.

    An indicator of pressure to destock is the production of foetal calf blood produced, as destockers sell pregnant cows to reduce grazing pressure.

    Hard to find a current price for foetal calf blood, the works don’t like revealing their cards.

    I dunno if they even use ovine sheep foetal lamb blood, but at a recent sheep sale, I was outbid by meatwork buyers on the few lines of point of lambing pregnant ewes. annoying, but if you are not disciplined on the day you buy stock, you can never run overpriced animals well enough to make a dollar.

    Abc country hour today reported a surge in Australian foetal calf blood production as destocking of the national herd speeds up with the dry.
