    Speaking of government child removal services
    Chilling Report Shows 88% of Missing S3x Trafficked Kids Come from US Foster Care

    America has a dark secret that no one wants to admit. Talk of this secret will get you labelled as a conspiracy theorist, fake news, and outlets who report on it will have their organic reach throttled by social media and Google alike. Despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary, many in the mainstream media and the government refuse to see this very real epidemic of child sex trafficking in the United States. What’s more, according to the government’s own data, the vast majority of a portion of these trafficked kids are coming from the country’s own foster care system.

    Children are being needlessly ripped from homes at such an alarming rate that hundreds of parents in one state have gone so far as to create a counter-kidnapping organization to stop it.

    As TFTP reported last week, a parent’s rights organization filed a letter in federal court last Tuesday asking a federal judge strike down Minnesota’s current child protection laws for being too expansive and removing children from loving and safe homes without due process.

    “Families are being abused, and in some cases, destroyed, as a result of laws that are inappropriate,” said Dwight Mitchell, the lead plaintiff in the case and founder of the parents’ association. “This is legal kidnapping.”

    This legal kidnapping is happening in states across the country and it is contributing to the very real epidemic of child trafficking. The reality of such practices within the United States foster system is outright horrifying.

    In 1984, the United States Congress established the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC), and, as part of Missing Children’s Assistance Reauthorization Act of 2013 they receive $40 million to study and track missing and trafficked children in the United States.

    In 2017, NCMEC assisted law enforcement with over 27,000 cases of missing children, the majority who were considered endangered runaways.
    According to their most recent report complied from FBI data and their own, of the nearly 25,000 runaways reported to NCMEC in 2017, one in seven were likely victims of child s3x trafficking. Of those, 88 percent were in the care of social services when they went missing.

    Showing the scope of the abuse, in 2017 alone, NCMEC’s CyberTipline, a national mechanism for the public and electronic service providers to report instances of suspected child sexual exploitation, received over 10 million reports. According to NCMEC, most of these tips were related to the following:

    Apparent child s3xual abuse images.
    Online enticement, including “s3xtortion.”
    Child s3x trafficking.
    Child s3xual molestation.
    Other governmental organizations have corroborated this horrifying trend. In a 2013 FBI 70-city nationwide raid, 60 percent of the victims came from foster care or group homes. In 2014, New York authorities estimated that 85 percent of s3x trafficking victims were previously in the child welfare system. In 2012, Connecticut police rescued 88 children from s3x trafficking; 86 were from the child welfare system.

    Equally as disturbing as the fact that most s3x trafficked kids come from within the system is the fact that the FBI discovered in a 2014 nationwide raid that many foster children rescued from s3x traffickers, including children as young as 11, were never reported missing by child welfare authorities.

    Last year, TFTP reported on an example of this lack of reporting out of Topeka, Kansas. In the shocking report, the Kansas Department for Children and Families (DCF), which oversees foster care in the state, were found to have lost 70 children after a high profile case of three missing sisters garnered the attention of authorities.

    This has to stop.

    It should be noted that there are certainly instances of abusive parents who should not have custody of their children. There are also many kind and loving foster parents willing to take them in. However, as the recent case in Minnesota highlights, many times, these children are torn from loving homes and forced into a system rife with abuse and trafficking.

    One terrifying example of kids being unnecessarily taken from their parents by the state only to be severely harmed in government custody comes out of Arizona, the state kidnapped a 5-year-old girl from her mother who had an alleged substance abuse problem and put her directly into the hands of a leader of a child s3x ring.

    Even after the girl’s mother recovered from her addiction, the state refused to return her daughter. Even worse, the mother found out that her daughter was being repeatedly s3xually abused and no action was taken to remove her daughter from the state’s system.

    Sadly, children all over the US are taken from caring parents who have admitted to using marijuana or other drugs. While there’s no national count on how many parents lose custody of their kids each year due to marijuana, Keith Stroup, founder of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) told The Daily Chronic that his team gets calls “three or four times a week from people who have lost custody of their children because they tested positive at birth or in a situation where parents are feuding over custody.” This kidnapping even occurs in regions where marijuana is legal.

    Even high-level government officials have been ensnared in these foster care abuse scandals. As TFTP previously reported, multiple victims came forward and accused Seattle Mayor Ed Murray of s3xually abusing them when they were children in Washington’s foster care system.

    The records in that case, dating back to 1984, explicitly noted that Ed Murray should “never again be utilized as a certified CSD resource for children.” It also showed that a criminal case was brought against Murray by prosecutors but in spite of the multiple accusations, charges were somehow never filed and his records buried.

    As Snopes and the mainstream media in general attempts to smear those who try to call attention to alleged and very real child trafficking, the government’s own data shows how irresponsible this is. While there are certainly some outlandish theories being presented online, the facts are outlandish enough to warrant serious scrutiny. Until this epidemic is taken seriously, the government, the media, and all those who deny it will remain complicit in keeping it going.

    As Michael Dolce, who specializes in these horrific child abuse cases, pointed out earlier this year, “we have set up a system to s3x traffic American children.” Indeed we have.

    “Coelbatch offers various explanations for the treasonous behaviour of the unions. Many of the leaders were Communists obsessed with class warfare. Fervent “identity politics” led them to believe they were victims and servicemen and women were “puppets of capitalism whose lives were of no consequence”. Contrary to popular belief, strikes and sabotage continued, even after the Soviet Union became an ally, writes Colebatch, who contends that the Australian Left may have wanted to undermine the military in preparation for revolution after the war.”

    It seems obvious that the forces of their Australian left see our current Australian military as “Puppets of Capitalism”, living lives of less than zero worth.

    Their left need to do ‘Warring Down’ to undermine the current military, to lay the groundwork for their Revolutionary Fundemental Decolonialisation of the ruins of our country into a gulag outpost of transnational totalitarianism.

    They report that while the EmDrive did experience thrust, the thrust did not appear to come from the engine itself—there was thrust no matter which direction the engine was pointing, suggesting it originated from a secondary source, possibly magnetism from the Earth.

    From the comments:
    No shit. I called this the moment I saw their setup. They had DC power feeds running into the thing from outside the balance, and they weren’t coaxial or even twisted pair! Of course it generated torque with Earth’s field. What a waste of time…

    Ned’s real offence had little to do with breaking the law.

    He showed up the police as buffoons.

    Not just that: he openly mocked them: I had a pair of arms
    and a bunch of fives on the end of them that
    never failed to peg at anything they came in contact
    with and Fitzpatrick knew the weight of one of them only
    too well as it run against him once in Benalla
    and cost me two pound odd as he is very subject
    to fainting,

    Such brazen disrespect for the threadbare authority of the police had to be punished.

    The offer is the first of many expected to follow Tuesday’s federal court ruling giving the go-ahead to AT&T to buy Time Warner.

    More:

    The cavity Tajmar is using does not have a resonance at 1.865GHz (the frequency he is inputting) and his results look very much like something else is resonating. NASA were well aware of the potential problem of a Lorentz force, and showed their thrust was not from that. In their 2017 paper (page 838, top right column) they said “The [cavity] was tested in forward, reverse and null orientations, but dc power cabling, routing & orientation was the same for all three configurations”. What this means is that the NASA emdrive’s thrust direction followed the cavity orientation and not the cable orientation. Therefore for a real working emdrive, it is the cavity and not the cables that make the thrust.

    Kelly was a cold-blooded murderer who killed unarmed men and children.

    From the Argus:

    DESTRUCTION OF THE KELLY GANG
    On Saturday, October 26, 1878, Sergeant KENNEDY and two police constables were murdered in cold blood by a gang of four men who took the name of their leader, EDWARD KELLY, a well-known thief; since then the gang have plundered and murdered at pleasure, defying justice with success until their career was closed yesterday by a tragic catastrophe. The KENNEDY murder, with which the KELLYS commenced their career, is not easily surpassed as a cold-blooded and gratuitous atrocity, and yet the last effort of the gang has claims to be considered the most diabolical of any. The gang ascertained that aid was being given to the police by a young man who had once known them, and who had taken unto himself a wife and had built a house, and was gaining an honest living by work upon the land. On Saturday night last they decoyed AARON SHERRITT outside his hut, and shot down the unfortunate, unarmed, and helpless man thus taken by surprise as though he were a dog. Four policemen were in the hut and some women also, and the outlaws endeavoured to burn the place down. Failing in this they took to horse to return to their haunts, but they had planned to perpetrate a further and more wicked mischief on their way. They anticipated that a special train would be despatched from Melbourne to the scene of the outrage, and they determined to rip up the rails and wreck the train, and thus take thirty or forty lives at a blow. Their motive in committing this crime was as senseless as was their object in the murder of the KENNEDY party, for it was simply to get rid for a time of the black trackers, in whose place a dozen avenging parties would have inevitably have started up. The treacherous slaying of the unhappy man SHERRITT can be understood. No doubt the outrage would strike terror into the hearts of all who might be disposed to assist the officers of justice, and it was to the interest of the gang to establish a terrorism in the district, but the wrecking of the train was purely gratuitous. If the gang had not made the effort they would have been back in their old hiding-places in the Strathbogie Ranges long before the police could have been on their tracks, and thus they might have eluded pursuit as successfully as ever. But the exploit of wrecking a train and killing some of the trackers, and riding triumphantly away, would have told well with the criminal classes who sympathise with thieves and cut-throats, and the gang determined upon making the effort. They set the trap, and they fell into it. They could not leave because they had to watch the officials in order to prevent the train being signalled. They had to watch and wait, to keep guard over the stationmaster, and scrutinise his face with an intention of “blowing out his brains” if he showed a disposition to warn his fellow-officers that they were hurrying to destruction. But the train did not blindly dash into the pit dug for it. Superintendent HARE knew better than that. He anticipated a trick of the kind, and arranged that a pilot-engine should run in front of the special, and that a watch should be kept from it on the track, and that precaution would have saved the force even if the alarm had not been given. But the alarm was given. A platelayer stopped the special outside of Glenrowan, and instead of seeing the train wrecked, the gang found the police upon them. A frightful tragedy had been averted, and justice had at last come to her own.

    The scene which followed at Glenrowan is very pitiable. The fight with EDWARD KELLY was in the open, and this ruffian was captured without being killed, and without his having killed any one, though he fought with a home-made iron armour upon him. The probability is that the precaution he had taken to save his life hampered his movements, and really led to a more easy capture than would otherwise have been the case. But the remainder of the gang were brought to bay in the hotel, where they had locked up their prisoners to prevent warning being given to the train, and from this shelter it was found difficult to dislodge them. We have to tell of children wounded and of civilians shot. BYRNE, who, with a coward’s hand, had murdered the unsuspecting SHERRITT, fell first.

    Sev Ozdowski backs mandatory English language requirement idea

    The Australian

    @livcaisley

    Former human rights commissioner Sev Ozdowski has backed a government proposal for mandatory English language requirements for all new permanent residents following concerns that by 2021, more than one million people in Australia could have little or no English skills.

    But in a sign that another political stoush is looming over the issue, Labor has rubbished the proposal as a “thought bubble” and refused to say whether it would support such a scheme.

    Malcolm Turnbull confirmed the government would look at broadening the English language requirements beyond citizenship to the 200,000 permanent resident migrants every year claiming it was the key to successful integration.

    The Migration Council came out in support of the plan after The Australian revealed Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs Minister Alan Tudge was considering proposals with the migrant and multicultural lobby.

    Dr Ozdowski, who was also the recent chair of the Australian Multicultural Council, said he had raised the issue last year at a meeting of the Federation of Ethnic Communities Council of Australia, arguing that a basic English test was common sense and called for bipartisan and Senate support.

    “It’s simple, a conversational English test would help people find work,” Dr Ozdowski said.

    He raised the issue of skilled migrants entering the country with a spouse who had no English and said the problem was acute among migrant women who were at risk of becoming socially isolated and unable to find work

    From the Oz. Migrant women of a certain religion perhaps?

    From The Guardian, of course: Australian news consumers who identify as leftwing have the highest interest in news and access it most often. In the online news world, outlets including Guardian Australia and BuzzFeed “attract strong leftwing audiences”. They’re just not willing to pay for it.
    Now sit down for the next bit, the secret is out: The ABC audience is a mixed picture. Consumers of the ABC TV news come from all sides of the political divide but the national broadcaster’s online news service “attracts a heavily leftwing audience”.. So don’t believe the audience breakdown of Q&A.

    Egg – I’m sad that the EM drive is fading. Likewise I’m sad that Rossi’s device doesn’t work and that Pons and Fleischmann likewise failed.

    Yet I’ve found there can be ways around many seemingly impossible barriers. I’ve three patents of stuff no one thought could be done. Each worked in the lab…when the conditions were right, two in large pilot plants.

    I just hope that there are more slightly bonkers people out there who will keep trying.

    Au contraire:

    They apparently intend to retest but using mu metals.

    Regarding prof. Tajmar experiments, this guy is quite clever and already engaged in breakthrough propulsion. I just don’t believe he would be so stupid by making simulation of standing waves resonance inside his EMDrive and after then using another frequency for to demonstrate the complete absence of thrust. So I think, he just did these preliminary experiments to exclude other mechanisms for propulsion and to deter the competition before he will understand the process well. He may also want to make a space for his own contribution in this field for being able to say later: “look, the original EMDrive couldn’t work as described – but I managed to improve it!”.

    So that there can be hidden a lotta stuffs and strategy behind publication of these premature findings.

    Of course I can be still completely wrong about both Tajmar’s cleverness, both feasibility of EMDrive – but I should also consider the number of already successful replications.

    G’day Arky.

    (Disregarding the criticism that Tajmar stuffed his own experiment up, or silly comments about Bruce that “LENR doesn’t work”…)

    Please, I know you’re only trolling, but you sound like you would have told Henri Giffard to “suck shit” before he was successful in creating powered flight (all the way back in 1852).

    Newton’s laws are not immutable, hence QM and GR. MOND and QI show that dark matter is total and “utter crap”* and that in the least, at low accelerations, gravity needs to be remodelled or inertia redefined.

    Try polarisation of EM using Brewster’s angle, wave cancellation etc. A paper from 1950. (Nothing to do with the risible analogy you have ripped (and patched over) from the mealy-mouthed, Marxist *”Rational” Wiki*.)

    https://www.nature.com/articles/165726a0

    How is the EM drive violating Newton’s laws? It isn’t in the same way that the photoelectric effect does not “violate” Maxwell’s equations.

    Here is the abstract to Tajmar’s paper:

    Propellantless propulsion is believed to be the best option for interstellar travel. However, photon rockets or solar sails have thrusts so low that maybe only nano-scaled spacecraft may reach the next star within our lifetime using very high-power laser beams. Following into the footsteps of earlier breakthrough propulsion programs, we are investigating different concepts based on non-classical/revolutionary propulsion ideas that claim to be at least an order of magnitude more efficient in producing thrust compared to photon rockets. Our intention is to develop an excellent research infrastructure to test new ideas and measure thrusts and/or artefacts with high confidence to determine if a concept works and if it does how to scale it up. At present, we are focusing on two possible revolutionary concepts: The EMDrive and the Mach-Effect Thruster. The first concept uses microwaves in a truncated cone-shaped cavity that is claimed to produce thrust. Although it is not clear on which theoretical basis this can work, several experimental tests have been reported in the literature, which warrants a closer examination. The second concept is believed to generate mass fluctuations in a piezo-crystal stack that creates non-zero time-averaged thrusts. Here we are reporting first results of our improved thrust balance as well as EMDrive and Mach-Effect thruster models. Special attention is given to the investigation and identification of error sources that cause false thrust signals. Our results show that the magnetic interaction from not sufficiently shielded cables or thrusters are a major factor that needs to be taken into account for proper µN thrust measurements for these type of devices

    The way to really knock this on the head or to show it works is to scale it up. 2W is about the same as the output of an AAA battery. The Q factors used by Tajmar et. al. are not particularly high. The peak Q factor employed by Tajmar was about 166,000 times less than what is possible in a lab. So what happens if you are using a Q factor of 50 billion and pump in kilowatts or megawatts of power?

    Note what Tajmar et. al., wrote – they are going to upgrade the experiment next time with a better design for shielding. Good. Have you seen any of the other results for the EM drive concept though? Reversed thrust on reversed inputs and scaling has been observed. As has a relationship with modified gravity explanations. The RF cavity design has also been subject to optimisation (in theory anyway).

    The best way to go might be to attempt to build something useful. The Wright Brothers may not have bothered if they could not get a computer simulation or a wind tunnel test to work they way they expected. It might be apocryphal, but Nobel didn’t sit down and design nitroglycerin either.

    What was written about the Mach Effect thruster?

    The thruster was mounted inside the
    measurement box with Mu-metal shielding. The
    amplifier electronics were outside, and a liquid-metal
    feedthrough was used to power the thruster on the
    balance. Fig. 13 shows thrust results in all three
    directions (0°, 90° and 180°) for 150 Vpp and an
    applied sine wave at 31 kHz in vacuum. The apparent
    thrust has a value of 0.6 µN and indeed reverses for
    180° and moreover also vanishes at 90° as expected.
    However, when we moved the thruster box back to
    the 0° direction and manually flipped only the thruster
    to 180°, while leaving all power cables the same, the
    thruster signal remained the same as in the 0°
    direction. This again indicates that there must be
    some electromagnetic interaction or thermally
    induced center of mass shift that is masking any real
    thrust value.

    Woodward measured a steady thrust with this
    thruster of around -1.2 µN for 400 Vpp as well as
    large switching thrust transients during on-off.
    Previous data suggests a V4 scaling of thrust with
    applied voltage [21]. We therefore expect only 0.02
    µN which may be present in our thrust data but
    masked by electromagnetic/thermal issues. In a next
    step, we need to increase our voltage and reduce our
    thermal and electromagnetic interactions to safely
    assess this thrust range.

    So it sounds like Tajmar is saying the MET works (but less so than previously thought) and RF cavity drives may not. This is still excellent news. The thing is, a modified gravity approach, which I think in part explains the EM DriveCannae drive, is the basis of the Mach Effect thrusters (inertial interaction with the rest of the universe).

    *So does the discovery of many more numerous black holes than previously observed. So does the observation of a galaxy recently without any perceptible dark matter fudge. Well, it mightn’t be total and utter crap but most of the CDM is just an error term, the prevalence of dark energy is more like and that might just be Unruh waves. See Smolyaninov (2008) to see a test (yes only one) basically proving the existence of Unruh radiation.

    PS

    If the EM Drive makes you lose your marbles and go back to pre-1895 physics, then the MEGA Drive/Mach Effect Thruster concept that Tajmar also tested will make you flip out and start rambling about phlogiston.

    The irony shouldn’t be lost on you that the MET can be explained by modified gravity theories and the Dirac Sea, which ironically, maybe the *aether* after all.

    PPS

    You can only really say Tajmar’s research is preliminary on this. He cannot really base a conclusion on this work. He said the interference was “similar” given the baseline magnetic field of where the experiment was conducted, but we don’t see any comparison of observed & theoretical thrust and interference observations, let alone any (statistical) test between means of those variables.

    Also note: Tajmar is a leading researcher in electrogravitics. Some of the stuff he says here (“massive ion-current”) sounds like the Biefield-Brown effect creating “lift”. If you want to use him as a foil to Shawyer and Woodward without actually reading the paper, you need to accept his work. You can’t pick and choose what you like and don’t like without a rational basis. Preservation of the status quo is not one either. We’ve observed an inflationary universe, and in recent years noted that inflation is accelerating. At the cosmic scale, the universe does not consider itself a closed system or disregards the 1st law of thermodynamics. If something “violates Newtons laws!” or “violate’s Rankine’s 1st law of thermodynamics!” not only does it need empirical support, it needs to be relevant. If you believe experimental results ought to be repeated, then you’d still err in favour of RF cavity thrusters working. Principia mathematica isn’t relevant and the weight of the evidence is behind the RF cavity thruster concept.

    Old, but good.

    Abstract: Using the weak field approximation, we can express the theory of general relativity in a Maxwell-type structure comparable to electromagnetism. We find that every electromagnetic field is coupled to a gravitoelectric and gravitomagnetic field. Acknowledging the fact that both fields originate from the same source, the particle, we can express the magnetic and electric field through their gravitational respective analogues using the proportionality coefficient k. This coefficient depends on the ratio of mass and charge and the ratio between the electromagnetic and gravitic-gravitomagnetic permittivity and permeability respectively. Although the coefficient is very small, the fact that electromagnetic fields in material media can be used to generate gravitational and gravitomagnetic fields and vice versa is not commonly known. We find that the coupling coefficient can be increased by massive ion currents, and electron and nuclear spin-alignment. Advances in material sciences, cryogenic technology and high frequency electromagnetic fields in material media may lead to applications of the derived relationships.

    He concludes:

    Comparing the non-Newtonian gravitational acceleration to the one of a 1 kg point mass at a radius of 10 cm (=6.7×10-9 ms-2), we see that the fields associated with electromagnetism are usually at least 10 orders of magnitude below the gravitational fields produced by standard masses. However, electromagnetism is associated with available wide ranges of frequencies, currents and potentials and is therefore more “engineerable” than the handling of heavy masses. Hence, using electromagnetic fields to induce non-Newtonian gravitational fields is an issue closely related to material sciences, cryogenic technology and extremely high frequency problems.

    Additionally to this, we find that massive ion currents, electron and nuclear spin-alignment in materials can lead to a higher coupling coefficient. The presented relationship encourages further research into practical applications towards experimental gravitation.

    A minor quibble, I don’t think these technologies are the best option for interstellar. The Alcubierre metric is. The mass-energy requirements of this have been scaled down dramatically. Harold White reckons he has produced small warp bubbles with moderate energy inputs and no exotic matter. Advances like the MEGA drive and electrogravitics might make accessible exotic matter (matter with negative gravity or pressure) possible.

    The issue is, of course, one of economic feasibility. Being observed as far back as the 1920s (Rutherford, IIRC?) does not make it particularly useful, therein lay the problem for F&P. I’ve read some of Fleischman’s personal letters from the time and he got a really unfair run, people also forget how accomplished he was. The concept was pretty much sunk by one rival by a media conference.

    There might be something to Mills’ theory or Widom-Larsen after all. I hate to say it, but Rossi looks like he might have just been a confidence man.

    The Mercedes Benz symbol is simply a circle divided into three. I am sure it represents the Nazi triad “Eins Volk, Eins Reich, Eins Fuhrer”. The three elements comprising a whole.

    The Mercedes so-called three pointed star logo was introduced by the two sons of Gottfried Daimler with the approval of supervisory chairman Alfred von Kaulla after the departure of Emil Jellinek (father of Mercedes).
    The official company account is probably fiction.
    Gottfried Daimler lost control of the company after he decided to incorporate- a move that was widely referred to as his deal with the devil.
    The logo is based on the triskelion, a Neolithic symbol known in Europe as an ancient Aryan symbol and in the triplicities of land, sky and sky in Celtic cosmology.
    Karl Benz and his sons liked the allusion to his Benz Model 3 three-wheel Motorwagen, recognised in its first model version as the first fully-designed automobile, so he later decided to keep the symbol.
    The choice does not appear to be related to any fascist symbolism.

    As for the graph Tom linked to from the IPA: anytime you have the value of the interest cost of government debt exceeding the value of real per capita income/GDP growth, you are going to have a decline in labour demand. We’re close to having debt servicing costs so high that employment growth cannot grow (wages are regulated and since WorkChoices was repealed, cutting back on hours is not as easy).

    We are so lucky we have a flexible exchange rate now; one major shock with a fixed exchange rate, regulated wages and a growth-sapping level of public debt would make the 1990 recession look like a picnic. If the US keeps pushing their rates up and we hold our rates or drop them, there is not much the AUD can do though without purchasing power on tradeables copping a beating. By definition, we’d take a hit to our living standards in the least, that is if you kept your job.

    Solid geological evidence, based largely upon analysis of deep cores of coral reefs, exists only for 3 major periods of accelerated sea level rise, called meltwater pulses, during the last deglaciation. They are Meltwater pulse 1A between circa 14,600 and 14,300 calendar years ago; Meltwater pulse 1B between circa 11,400 and 11,100 calendar years ago; and Meltwater pulse 1C between 8,200 and 7,600 calendar years ago. Meltwater pulse 1A was a 13.5 m rise over about 290 years centered at 14,200 calendar years ago and Meltwater pulse 1B was a 7.5 m rise over about 160 years centered at 11,000 years calendar years ago. In sharp contrast, the period between 14,300 and 11,100 calendar years ago, which includes the Younger Dryas interval, was an interval of reduced sea level rise at about 6.0–9.9 mm/yr. Meltwater pulse 1C was centered at 8,000 calendar years and produced a rise of 6.5 m in less than 140 years.[17][18][19]

    ‘The swastika represents pure hatred and the crimes of a regime responsible for the most destructive conflict the world has ever known, including the murder of six million J3ws and millions of others.

    ‘At a time of escalating anti-Semitism and intolerance, this vile display of bigotry is a reminder of the ever-present need for people of good to speak out against such abhorrence, and that racism is still rampant in parts of our society.’

    He wrote in his diary of “the policy of shooting Japanese soldiers, who were attempting to surrender, using the leaflets that had been airdropped, urging them to do so.”

    I’m looking for some guidance from the bush lawyers on the Cat.

    In the aftermath of the “swastika on the army vehicle episode”

    My grandfather’s brother was a World War Two veteran – El Alamein ( infantry) and the “unnecessary campaigns” of the North Coast of New Guinea, and the Islands (1944/45) – artillery.

    He wrote in his diary of “the policy of shooting Japanese soldiers, who were attempting to surrender, using the leaflets that had been airdropped, urging them to do so.”

    Given that he died in 1962, is he still a war criminal, for having such knowledge of these atrocities, and writing of them in his diary , or am I a war criminal, for having read of such matters in his diary, and not reporting them?

    That your Grandfathers brother told his brother of his experiences should not be denigrated.

    With all due respect let us acknowledge your Granfathers brother’s contribution.

    But remember the secrecy provisions.

    I was asked by one of my younger cousins to help his older brother who went to Vietnam and was doing it tough.

    I helped him.

    The law the EM drive violates is conservation of momentum. I’m backing the law for various reasons.

    Only an apparent violation – of a law that does not hold for the entire universe (empirically observed from accelerating inflation).

    The (weight of the) evidence says it works. The best explanation is that modified gravity in some form is right and Shawyer’s conceptual model is not entirely cogent and has become inconsistent over time – and for everything else save for cosmic inflation, conservation is an iron law.

  146. JC

    I think this is just out or may have missed it earlier. Bloomberg is reporting:

    Comey Broke From FBI Procedures in Clinton Probe, Watchdog Finds

    Former FBI Director James Comey “deviated” from FBI and Justice Department procedures in handling the probe into Hillary Clinton, damaging the law enforcement agencies’ image of impartiality even though he wasn’t motivated by political bias, the department’s watchdog found in a highly anticipated report.

    “While we did not find that these decisions were the result of political bias on Comey’s part, we nevertheless concluded that by departing so clearly and dramatically from FBI and department norms, the decisions negatively impacted the perception of the FBI and the department as fair administrators of justice,” Inspector General Michael Horowitz said in the report’s conclusions, which were obtained Thursday by Bloomberg News.

    Comey isn’t in the clear, but what this may mean is that Crooked gets another looksee.

  147. Snoopy

    Comey is finished, Monty. Remember when he was your great hope?

  148. That Bloomberg piece doesn’t say much. Surely there must be more to it than that. Or maybe it’s a nothingburger.

  149. Snoopy

    It’s all over Monty. Horowitz’s report is going to make your ears bleed.

  150. JC

    That Bloomberg piece doesn’t say much.

    How much of a lesbian in denial are you? The report is saying the head of the FBI royally fucked up investigative procedures and you think that doesn’t destroy Comey? Are you fucking mad?

  151. OneWorldGovernment

    Hopefully Trump will next turn his attention to Turkey and that mad xunt erdogan and freeze the bastards out of the real world.

  152. I don’t give a crap about Comey. He’s irrelevant. Good riddance to him.

    Yes, Comey did depart from FBI norms and procedures in Clinton’s case. The left think that too, in making it an election issue with all that obiter dicta in his testimony criticising her in the strongest terms for harmless technical practices.

    Meanwhile, he followed the book on the Trump investigation and allowed the Russians to meddle with America’s election.

    String him up if you like, it doesn’t change what Trump and his minions are guilty of.

  153. C.L.

    Ned Kelly’s response to VicPol was prophetic.

  154. C.L.

    So Comey broke the law and deliberately perverted the course of justice.
    He isn’t exactly active on Twitter these days but he did post this ten days ago:

    James [email protected]

    Just finished Jon Meacham’s “The Soul of America.” Good reminder that facts and the essential goodness of the American people always triumph. It can take a while, but decency and the rule of law inevitably win over demagogues and liars. So long as we all stand up and speak out.

    THE AUSTRALIAN – ‘Don’t lift foot off N Korea’s throat’, Bishop tells Trump

    Foreign Minister Julie Bishop has cautioned Donald Trump against ceasing military exercises between the US and South Korea too quickly, saying the West should not “lift its foot off North Korea’s throat” until the nation proved it was serious about denuclearisation.

    US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo attempted to reassure nervous allies on a visit to Seoul yesterday, saying Pyongyang would only gain sanctions relief after “complete denuclearisation” in the face of North Korean claims that the US had agreed to lift economic pressure on the state.

    After Mr Trump surprised Japan and South Korea with the announcement he would end joint exercises and was considering pulling out troops from the peninsula — which the countries see as key to their security — Mr Pompeo met the foreign ministers of the two countries .

    South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha stressed that US troops “play and will continue to play a crucial role in deterrence, peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula” and any move to suspend the exercises would “require consultations”.

    Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono reportedly said the halt to the war games “is contingent” on North Korea’s actions. The large-scale Ulchi Freedom Guardian exercises between the US and South Korea are scheduled for August.

    At a press conference following the summit with North Korea this week, Mr Trump said joint US-South Korean exercises were “provocative” and he wanted to eventually draw down the number of US troops in South Korea.

    Ms Bishop yesterday called on the US to clarify exactly what Mr Trump meant.

    In response to questions about whether ceasing the military exercises was a good idea, the Foreign Minister said the US should not remove factors which brought Pyongyang to the negotiation table.

    “The major reason was the impact of the economic sanctions that have been imposed since last September by virtue of a unanimous resolution of the UN Security Council including Russia and China to their credit, and also the threat of military action, without doubt that’s what brought Kim Jong-un to the negotiating table,” she said. “So I would not be taking my foot off the throat of North Korea until I saw very concrete steps that this time they were genuine.”

    In a further split with Mr Trump, Ms Bishop said Russia should not be brought back into the G7 grouping of nations, after Mr Trump said Moscow should be readmitted to the industrialised nations meetings.

    “I don’t believe in rewarding bad behaviour,” she said.

    The Turnbull government has welcomed the Singapore summit and Malcolm Turnbull has said Mr Trump deserved credit for giving peace on the Korean peninsula a “red-hot go”.

    Vice Chief of the Australian Defence Force, Ray Griggs, said anything that lowered the temperature on the peninsula was “a net positive” but the military was still studying the summit’s outcomes. “We’ll look at the full implications of what the summit communique means,” he said.

    In a question-and-answer session yesterday, Ms Bishop said she “absolutely” believed Australia needed a bigger aid budget.

  212. OneWorldGovernment

    what do these fuckhead ADF think you should do?

    What fly an Australian flag and get fucking shot out of hand.

    I certainly would not carry a fucking nazi flag but I would capture it and piss on it and cut the throat of the xunt who was carrying it and piss on him.

    The country where Asia Bibi, a Christian mother of 5, is on death row for “blasphemy” just won a seat on the UN council that accredits human rights groups and oversees the women’s rights commission.

    The laugh of the day – The Emaciated advises the Colossus

    FBI orders bias training for employees after latest embarrassing emails

    The FBI will make its employees undergo bias training, Director Christopher Wray promised Thursday, after a devastating report found the bureau made bad decisions, has a culture of leaking sensitive information, and may have skewed campaign-season decisions because of bias.

    A laugh alright BoN.

    When I was still young and naive and actively worked for a political future, I often thought about how to deal with an obviously biased left/right PS.

    Needless to say I didn’t come up with any ideas, other than some outlandish Sci-Fi solutions.
    To my defense, nobody else had a better success either.

    I wonder if the naysayers would saying about the light globe. Remember that it took a lot of failure to get it right. This could apply to EM. We just don’t know.

    Appears to be a case of getting a theory to fit the facts – fvcking up the Theoreticians.

    Thank you Gab and thanks for the Cat.
    Being too busy cuts one off from a lot of worthy news items.
    Terrible situation for the poor woman.
    Where is “Islam is the most female friendly religion” A Maggee (?) now?

    I don’t give a crap about Comey. He’s irrelevant. Good riddance to him.

    Very low energy, monty.

    The filth of Pakistan is beyond most belief.

    Even when they go to Britain and become Home Secretary.

    The absolute crap that women are subjected to under sharia is beyond comprehension.

    I’m sorry because it is beyond me to know how to assist this person other than to hope that Trump will kick the guts out of Pakistan.

    I actually hope he declines to go to England.

    Have China annex Pakistan.

    It would be an improvement to the human rights situation.

    I am serious.

    I don’t either. Resign immediately Ms. Stabbie-stabbie.

    I thought they had already done that.

    The only way to ‘fix’ Pakistan and defeat Afghanistan is fire missiles into every mosque on a Friday and then drone kill any left over imams.

    They are evil xunts.

    The whole lot of them.

    If the ned Kelly investigation had been handed over to the same group within vicpol that looked after the childabuse Day and Risdale cases, the evidence would have been stolen and destroyed, the witnesses would have had ” gone around to see quietly” and any honest cops objecting would have been driven from the job like Dennis Ryan was..

    In fresh news, vicpol announce crime figures have dropped, and that the policy of putting diversity criminals into diversion and deradicalisation and community based programs instead of prosecuting them as crims is allowing top level vicpol to get away with claims of diversity being under represented in arrests and prosecutions.

    Despite my outrageous comments I am a Christian.

    May I suggest that you and Rita P contact Pamela Gellaher and ask her what can be done.

    Pamela is in contact with a lot of people.

    America has some in with Pakistan but it is limited.

    Like I said, I hope Trump kicks them in the guts.

    Hi Leo G,

    Just responding to a comment made last night around 10:30, the Mercedes logo thing was just kidding. I had meant for it to be absurd.

    Even in Australia someone in the position Rosenstein is in would have to resign. Neither does he have any choice in the US. Sessions can survive as a shit-weak politician but, as a functionary, RR is a dead man walking and, to make things better again, ie return the world to a less obvious deep state, he has to go away. The DRats know this, the f—wit Republicans know this, and almost all of the American people, with the exception of its media loons, know this. It really has to be all over or the people will rise up.

  234. John Constantine

    Frankenstabby Bishop, who has personally benefited from the undermining and leaking that disposed of the leaders she was loyal deputy to:

    “No reward for bad behaviour”.

    Frankenleaky has signed so many capitulation conventions that they aren’t even worth reporting any more.

    Frankenclinton has borrowed so much money future Australian taxpayers will have to repay, (so she can give it to the world’s dodgiest people Right Now) that we can’t keep track of where it all really went.

    Long live the Glorious frankenstabbyclintonstealy.

    What a brilliant idea Julie Bishop.

    It is absolutely farqing outrageous that Christians, let alone other religions, have been killed tortured and harrased out of fucking muslim countries.

    erdogan wants a farquing challenge of the crest and the Cross.

    Not a farqing problem you xunt.
