    This major raid had then ­resulted in the deaths of two local men. Following this operation, and amid concerns the dead men were innocent, Australian troops met locals to discuss the claims in a shura, a method of decision-­making in Islamic society.

    This second incident is therefore irrelevant given it was dealt with through local law authorities.

    Lizzie, you read Latin and Brythonic?
    This “overlooked Imperial Rescript of the Emperor Arcadius in 395AD” – care to elucidate?

    I read some Latin and have the good fortune to be able to consult Deadman from the Cat (via email) to get my mistakes corrected and his opinion on matters of interest (no one here who knows would doubt Deadman’s scholarly credentials in the Latin language). Brythonic is a dead language superseded by localised others, but scholars do issue translations of words in its various forms, which are:

    The Brittonic, Brythonic or British Celtic languages (Welsh: ieithoedd Brythonaidd/Prydeinig, Cornish: yethow brythonek/predennek, Breton: yezhoù predenek) form one of the two branches of the Insular Celtic language family; the other is Goidelic.

    I elucidate on the particular Rescript of the Emperor Arcadius in my forthcoming article. The reference to its existence is on page 142 of one of the scholarly books I have listed in an attached bibliography. This Rescript has a particular evidential salience for one of my claims, which really requires contextualizing as I do in the article; it is not contextualized in this way (i.e. in relationship to a key Arthurian text of the fifth century) in this scholarly book where I found it, which does not deal at all with British issues. I am the first to note a connection.
    This Rescript is only one piece of evidence in quite a long trail of evidence that I present.

    “I’ve been here since 1989 busting my guts for a vision and a set of values and, quite frankly, I’m sick of getting it ripped apart because of the failure of our managers,” Faine said

    If his managers had been actually doing their respective jobs he, Faine would not have had his contract renewed after its first term.
    Clearly, if Faine’s vision and values are widely shared then Australia is in a parlous state. Only in the ABC’s milue could he have possibly survived as a broadcaster for that long.

    STEM plus the arts – humanities, language arts, dance, drama, music, visual arts, design and new media.

    Here’s where we go awry.

    In traditional Western education the core liberal arts were grammar, logic & rhetoric, i.e. the Trivium, without which a citizen was not considered properly equipped for participation in the life of the state.

    Studying those would give the STEM student’s education a solid foundation and a valuable supplement.

    Thanks Lizzie. Nice to see ancient language scholars. I was curious about the source of the Acardius rescript – is it on an inscription, in a law code or cited elsewhere? I only ask because I’m catching up with someone this week who specializes in the late Roman period and your research sounds intriguing.

    Since 1989?
    You don’t feel like you should have given your talk show (not work) to a wimminsis or a brown person, or some other left wing box ticked group?
    You can’t do vision that good on the radio, and besides you seem cross eyed and your vision as often stated is hypocritical (seeing you have been there hogging the seat with your middle aged white arse since 1989)
    Working in the same place since 1989 means your vision and outlook will be totally warped and stale.
    You haven’t got out enough.
    You are insulated from the outside world and paid whether you perform or not.
    Therefore the set of values you talk about are obviously Marxist, as Marxists really are your only audience.
    So tell me again why I shouldn’t come down to the station and smack you in the mouth for being so smug as to take my taxes and countless others that disagree with you, and dribble your shit on my money?

    I am a western decent man, so instead of giving you the thrashing of your life which you so well deserve, I will instead call for the closure of this insane asylum that allows people like you to not only dribble the dangerous shit to an every decreasing audience( for an ever increasing cost) that you do, but to use my taxes again to complain about my disapproval on air.

    The Australian seems to have used the work experience kiddies to report on the latest NewsPoll.

    Analysing the trends (as opposed to looking at the change since the last poll) it is clear that:

    – Support for PHON collapsed in December 2017, not over the past fortnight;

    – First preferences from PHON and the Xenophon Public Masturbation Team have flowed steadily to the Coalition during 2018;

    – The Barnababy Shock Horror has had no measurable impact on the polls;

    – Uncle Billy Shorten has had no traction at all with his promises of aboriginal and monarchy referendums and bottomless funding for the ABC. Since October 2017 the ALP has been going nowhere in the 1P poll, and backward in 2PP poll, and Shorten himself remains as popular as arse cancer.

    As things stand, the Turnbull Shining Path (Marxist-Leninist) Coalition has a reasonable show at the Super Saturday elections, providing the growing separation between the parliamentary and membership Liberals doesn’t fall out of the closet any more than it already has.

    The Fat Bastard 2.0 Party recruiting Brian Burston is a wildcard – potentially hoovering up a few low-info PHON’s if it runs a candidate in Longman.

    Looks like Cory Bernardi dodged a bullet there.

  46. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    None, my source is a secondary but scholarly one which cites the words of the Rescript, so I imagine that somewhere it is properly codified; my source references a more detailed investigation by Caroline Humfress, in her article “Roman Law, Forensic Argument and the Formation of Christian Orthodoxy”, in S. Elm, E. Rebillard and A. Romano (eds.), Orthodoxie, Christianisme, Histoire, Rome 2000, which academic practice leads one to expect would have an original codex source for the Rescript, its provenance and its translators. It would not have come from an inscription. My source offers the quote from this Rescript, taken from Humfress’s legal scholarship, as: “Those persons who may be discovered to deviate, even in a minor point of doctrine, from the tenets and path of the Catholic religion are included within the designation of heretics and must be subject to the sanctions which have been issued against them”. A Rescript of course is an authoritative Imperial response to a query, in this case a query from the bemused Proconsul of Asia seeking advice as to how to handle the trial of the Bishop Heuresius, accused of heresy. This Rescript reinforced previous ones that were very similar, and showed how uncompromising the Church was to heresies during this period.

    Good stuff Lizzie. I have my hands full at the moment so I can’t Google but if S Elm is Susannah Elm of UC she’s a friend of my friend and is a very solid scholar. I would say that the church became more uncompromising under Theodosius who succeeded acardius if I remember off the top of my head but then the question is to what extent were those laws actually enforced. So for example theodosius band pagan worship that it continued for hundreds of years after he passed those laws. Anyway it’s a fascinating period and I hope you are enjoying your research.

    Mueller thought he had three strings to his bow.
    (1) Wussia collusion. 18 months on, that has come up empty. It is merely a pretext to try to set “obstruction” and “perjury” traps;
    (2) Obstruction. Mueller was pinning his hopes on getting Trump for firing Comey. That one was pronounced dead at 3:00 PM last Thursday, with the issue of the IG report. There are scores of examples of malicious, incompetent and negligent behaviour by Comey personally and by his subordinates. Not even Rustadon Dems think that is a live thread any more;
    (3) The perjury trap. Whether directly connected or not, the IG report strengthens Trump’s hand to tell Mueller to shove his verbal interview up his arse. Guiliani has already said there is not going to be an interview. Rudy is no idiot. He would have made that a condition of taking the brief to represent Trump.

    From Mater’s 11:04 link. Group Captain McGregor:

    On top of the burial mound there is an epigram attributed to Simonides. One translation is: “Go tell the Spartans thou who passest by. That here, obedient to their laws we lie.” The armed forces of a liberal democracy must be subject to the rule of law. That, we boast, is what separates us from the monsters who attacked the twin towers in New York and initiated this ugly interminable conflict. Let the law run its course. The full force of the law must fall on anyone who has killed innocent civilians.

    The difference, which is perfectly obvious to anyone but the most obtuse, is that the Spartans were not fighting an enemy which for tactical reasons, wore civilian clothes.

    Even the 7:30 piece which was supposed to be a hit job on the SAS revealed that the ‘victim’ family lied to the SAS, had sheltered the murderer and were in possession of AK-47’s. I’m sure Australian investigators can rely on their testimony.

    We never thought Australia would become a One Party State, unswervingly committed to decolonialisation, de-industrialisation and de-electrification through inporting 40 million new consumption machine property Ponzi proles.

    Their abc are using their billion dollar bully pulpit to go Warring Down meat eating, and will never rest until it is all fungus and algae on your plate, regardless of the health costs.

    Catherine McGregor at Mater’s link above:

    The retired commander of Special Operations Command Jeff Sengelman, who initiated the internal study into his command, is not a feminist academic. He is a soldier’s soldier.

    Well Sengleman may not be a feminist academic but the fuckwit hired one to write a report on his troops’ culture. Can you imagine Patton or Monash doing that?

    Sengleman is just another of a long list of left wing officers who have placed personal benefit – promotion – above fighting the emasculation of the armed forces. Soldier’s soldier my arse.

    What a disappointment Lucy Gichuhi had turned out to be.

    Apparently a senator’s base rate of $200K p.a. is not enough for her and her family to live on.

    Spare a thought for post-industrial S.A.’s unemployed and underemployed, Lucy, eh?

    Looks like Cory Bernardi dodged a bullet there.

    Indeed

    Her maiden speech about the unexpected welfare cheques was the give away

    no-one gets welfare that doesn’t apply for it

    as for administrative error pull the other one

    should be investigated for fraud

    her ‘official’ trip to Kenya is just example of trough snorking

    (And what was she doing getting welfare if she wasn’t a refugee?)

  99. None

    I do hope she’s not counting on her senator’s salary beyond 2019.

    she’s been allocated the spurts in a swap for South Australia on a 2019 ticket which means she has her teeth firmly clamped on the teeth unless that position is rescinded. I’ve been raising questions about Lucy from the day she joined the senate and I am so glad to be seen the headlines today finally for the media has been disgustingly complicit in this. For example they actually reported her trip to Kenya and did not think to ask why a senator from South Australia should be funded to go to Kenya particularily when she spent all her time visiting her father and doing media interviews a couple of which are incriminating and have been on YouTube for months and months. Even today’s Revelation about her crying $200,000 was not enough on Kenyan TV was raised by a tweet a leftist tweep before being picked up by Chris Kenny and Andrew Bolt. What the f*** did his journo’s do all day except talk about themselves? Ok bolt is an opinion writer not a news reporter but even he thought Lucia was all ants pants when she first came on the scene and never thought to ask any questions about the obvious discrepancies in her statements about getting money from the government that arrived like magic while simultaneously buying 6 houses with a husband within 2 years of arriving here.

    Oh dear,

    SA senator Lucy Gichuhi charged tax payers $2000 for a one night visit to Sydney to speak at a gala dinner for African professionals.

    It seems she’s under the misapprehension she represents Africans, not South Australians.

    The trip was apparently one of five to Sydney now under the spotlight.

    He is lying, Bruce. Just like how he lied to Congress that that meeting never happened.

    Do you have substantive evidence to back this assertion, or is it just your most reliable siurce, “chatter on lefty blogs”?

  108. C.L.

    On top of the burial mound there is an epigram attributed to Simonides. One translation is: “Go tell the Spartans thou who passest by. That here, obedient to their laws we lie.” The armed forces of a liberal democracy must be subject to the rule of law. That, we boast, is what separates us from the monsters who attacked the twin towers in New York and initiated this ugly interminable conflict. Let the law run its course. The full force of the law must fall on anyone who has killed innocent civilians.”

    “Group Captain” McGregor should point out to his readers that this is a minority-held translation of Simonides (via Herodotus). The actual quote is more likely this:
    ———
    Stranger, go tell the men of Lacedaemon
    That we, who lie here, did as we were ordered.

    ———
    Big difference.
    The one bolsters a liberal democracy exegesis; the other is the excuse made famous at Nuremberg.

    McGregor’s par before that:

    Perhaps instead of looking to Hollywood for inspiration, the Spartans of Swanbourne may care to examine the real history of Leonidas and the battle at Thermopylae.

    And you thought you had a bad start to the day…

    US woman fights off rabid bobcat, strangling it with bare hands
    ‘I thought, not today … there was no way I was going to die’ says Georgia grandmother who strangled animal to death

    Phillips said she grew up in the country, where her father-in-law was once a trapper of bobcats. As a result, she knew something about the animal’s behavior and how to fight back.

    “I thought, ‘not today,’” she told the newspaper . “There was no way I was going to die.”

    She grabbed the cat by its throat and didn’t let go. She was afraid of calling for help, she said, because her five-year-old granddaughter was in the house.

    “Once I got him where he wasn’t moving,” she said, “I started screaming for my daughter-in-law to call 911.”

    Her son arrived with a gun, she said, but she didn’t want him to fire because she was so close. So he pulled a knife.

    “My son stabbed it four or five times,” she said, “but it never budged so I knew it was completely dead.”

    Phillips suffered a broken finger and several bite and claw wounds to her hands, arms, chest and legs. She was also treated for rabies.

    DVA secretly changed the rules to deny veteran’s claim in 10-year battle.

    7.30 can now reveal that in 2010 the DVA deleted an incapacity policy in order to deny Mr Rollins further assistance.

    It was a policy that was specifically meant to help self-employed veterans.

    If they became incapacitated they could declare their earnings were zero and claim financial help from the Department, even if their business continued to earn an income.

    With the stroke of a pen, the DVA had changed the rules and never told Mr Rollins or his lawyer, who were relying on it for his claim.

    Mr Rollins and his lawyer didn’t learn about the change until 2015 when they discovered the Department’s deceit buried in a several-hundred-page draft report into his case.
