    At this point, you may ask yourself: what kind of parents want their teenagers involved in a polyamorous bisexual threesome?

    I wonder if that article was prompted by the British comedy series Threesome.

    I don’t keep a diary about when I’m on the cat and I don’t sit there and think about anyone on the cat when I not posting here. I don’t even think of you between posts. I recognise a few long time commenters like Gab but there are probably plenty of others who are long timers who I ignore because I just skim and only read what catches my interest. Now kindly get over your obsession with me becauae I am placing you on my “not worth reading” list.

    It occurred to me today that Horowitz used Comey’s infamous Clinton presser as a template for his Salvador Dali-esque, absurdist conclusions. Provides thousands of words of damning evidence of criminality, partisanship, treason, illegal collusion and malice but executively summarises the whole opus by saying no indictable wrongdoing could be found. When the inspector of the inspectors is corrupt, there can be no recovery of honour for the systemically sick “intelligence” community. These people now constitute an American gestapo.

    Coz I’ve imported lots of people, who paid circa $20,000 for their arrival. The majority of them I’m thoroughly ashamed to have made into citizens. They’re dreadful people of poor character.

    Every boat arrival is chock full of people who’ve paid USD $10 – 20 thousand per head. Very few, if any, will ever be anything but a net drain on Australia.

    You’re not wrong. That series crossed over to the dark side long ago.
    When you see your own town, or one you know well, thoroughly misrepresented to the point where you don’t recognise it, with an utterly unrepresentative depiction, you tune out.

    Her series on the National Party was similar. Started out okay, badly off the rails by the finish.

Bunnings sounds nice. 🙂

    ps Doesn’t Mrs. Herod drive? Hairy comes with me, and I stay sober enough to get behind the wheel, although Hairy was deeply upset when I tried to exit the car park by putting the ticket in the credit card slot. Ya didn’t even see da big sign there, didya? he says in exasperation, da one where it says Insert Ticket here. Ticket, not credit card, ticket dat I just gave ta ya, all paid up while you stared into space near da lift. I proved him wrong by noting (this time) all the proper exit signs but blotted my copybook by taking the rhs gutter with the Audi front tyre on the sharp turn down the final ramp (the tyre we’d just replaced from my previous adventures). He wanted me to stop and to take over himself but I was very good at huffily saying shut-up and I’m fine. I’m fine. OK?

    Well, we exchange first real names and Cat handles (shrieks of delight!) and take it from there individually as we chat to each other. You do not have to reveal more unless you wish. I trust Sinc not to throw me troll emails and we can sniff them a mile off anyway. I am always Lizzie because Elizabeth is a great name and I’ve owned it for a long time; since I was thirteen indeed. If you keep reading Quadrant and paying your cash for it you may (so I’m told) get to read a short piece in some forthcoming edition by my good self on why this is so.

    From the Blue Sky Mining end of the market.

    BKP Baraka was actually a reasonable trading chip in its day, but it is too much work to trade pips on a minnow that is bogged at a tenth of a cent minimum shareprice.

    Interesting, because it has massive leases, with a trillion tonnes of coal, but it is all deep and halfway between Alice Springs and the West Aussie border. If fracking gets going in the territory it has a hope of maybe getting a partner to farm in and try a well.

    This announcement is about a rarely seen move by a group of shareholders to just sack the current board and give themselves the job. Current board not that bad, but watching the three to four hundred percent jump in the shareprice on the announcement of the challenge looks like people are looking for a chance to monetise the leases.

    Probably all end in tears and the last capital raising spent on mailouts.

    Pierpont would have got a column out of it.

    A quick google reveals merely that they’ve been out of the major headlines.

    Their vicpol top level announce a drop in crime in yarragrad.

    Just as putting people on disability cuts the unemployment rate, so does refusing to arrest diversity crims and putting them into diversion programs and community cultural programs and deradicalisation programs reduce the arrest and conviction rates.

    Letting fifty crims trash a Public Order Response Kommittat squad car at night, then going around to see a community Big Man in the morning to announce a taxfunded community program reduces the potential bad propaganda arrests by fifty, and gives a community organiser tick on a boss vicpol wymynsys C.V.

    Organising a media blackout on news that doesn’t progress the framed agenda may be Stalinist, but it works.

    I noted elsewhere that Brian of Thirlmere (I think at Blair’s) backed up the White Flight narrative – he’s not white, he said, but even he and his family headed elsewhere when the western suburbs of his youth became too much. They had been there for yonks and said that all the old Aussies were lovely, but the newcomers were beyond the pale in more ways than one.

    Looks like its spread into the general population.

    Winston and Geriatric Mayfly. I learned about Bairnsdale ulcer caused by Mycobacterium ulcerans when I was a trainee Microbiologist in the late 1960’s. Back then there were few cases around Lakes Entrance and Bairnsdale in Victoria. Mycobacteria, of which tuberculosis is one type, are very hardy bacteria and very hard to treat. The epidmiology of the ulcerans strain is unusual, speading as it has around the coastal areas and definitely assocated with soil. Nasty. This article is quite informative.

Provides thousands of words of damning evidence of criminality, partisanship, treason, illegal collusion and malice but executively summarises the whole opus by saying no indictable wrongdoing could be found.

    CL, I think you’ll find that a platoon of Deep State propagandists was brought in to “top and tail” the Horowitz report — that is, to turn the “Executive Summary” into disinformation designed to deflect criticism of FBA management. That’s why the “Executive Summary” contradicted the findings of the body of the IG report, which was written by Horowitz himself. It also accounts for the delay of several weeks in the release of the report.

    I’m surprised that has not been more widely reported.

    On second thoughts, I’m not surprised. The news media that used to be the public’s eyes and ears is now the establishment’s propaganda megaphone.

    Since our divorced and her dad’s death, I have learned that she claimed to be and had been accepted as an Abo. That means our son is one as well.

    I asked him about it the other day and whether he identified as an Abo. He told me of course he didn’t but that he did once on a form to get some sort of benefit at uni, however soon after he felt guilty and stopped it.

  92. jupes

    From Cohenite’s link:

    These facts demand an investigation in themselves. Why did Defence go out of the chain of command and refer these complaints to a sociologist? Why did they give such favourable treatment to one journalist? Who gave the Herald the secret report, particularly as it had apparently been referred to a judge for further investigation? Is there a campaign against soldiers like Ben Roberts-Smith VC and the late Sergeant Matthew Locke to undermine our soldiers’ morale?

    There is no other conclusion to reach than that the top brass of the ADF and the government want to emasculate the ADF. In a just world everyone involved in this travesty should be charged with treason.

  93. Makka

    On second thoughts, I’m not surprised. The news media that used to be the public’s eyes and ears is now the establishment’s propaganda megaphone.

    The IG report was very heavily redacted – by Rosenstein.

    If you take a look at references to the several redacted Appendices you can see there is plenty of scope for further investigations and indictments. I’m really surprised they left in references to Obama using HRC’s unsecured email server. Another surprise, where the commentary covers the Wiener laptop it mentions crimes against children right alongside Clinton Foundation.

    If they were fair dinkum there would be a mob in every airport in Australia at the o/s arrivals point.

    Back in the day, when air travel was still a bit of a novelty, I recall people disembarking in Hawaii being collared with a welcoming lei. Frangipani/hibiscus or some such. Our Natives could limit their ceremonial enthusiasms to first class passengers, just another perk for the pointy enders. Garlands of spinifex or mulga leaves would capture media attention and leave little doubt in the minds of the A-listers as to what an agreeable mob we all are.

    Today we spent the afternoon chatting convivially for an hour or so to the neighbours about a new wood and sandstone fence to keep their dog in (or out, depending on your perspective). Also admired their new reno’s. They walked with us up their driveway so that we could examine the work of the fencer who has completed other fences for them. Their small fluffy dog seems to have a death wish. It sped over the road (quiet street, but there is local traffic) and bounced chirpily tail-wagging into the pathway of a huge Alsatian enforcer-dog and its handler taking their arvo constitutional. Fortunately the spectacularly disinterested Alsatian had just been fed and fluffy lived to welcome another day. As far as we know.

    On a closing note, did you know that all languages have very similar words for mother and father. This is because there are extraordinary similarities in the first words of an infant across all languages and these ‘words’ are seen by the parents to apply to themselves. The explanation lies in the fact that the first babbling articulation in humans is mama/mam and the second one is dada/papa/ata.

    All exhibit the low central vowel ‘ah’ which takes no effort to reproduce it, the open Ah is followed by a lip close producing ahm. mm is a simple vellum sound in the rest position. Well, that’s what I’ve written in my notes anyway.

    No, I don’t think we can blame feminists and lesbians for originating this (though they’ve been only too happy to hop into it like a bespoke boiler suit). This obvious attempt to slander and weaken the SAS arose over 17 years of special forces warriors in their 20s and 30s having more combat and war experience than all of the older ‘leaders’ of the ADF combined. Which isn’t saying much because the top brass of the ADF has exactly the same experience of actual war as The Wiggles. I wrote about this searing, simmering jealousy years ago, predicting it would blow up into an all-out attempt to – essentially – destroy the SAS (especially). It is a war between combat veterans and pussy-whipped mandarins who now regard militancy in progressing guerrilla leftism as a badge of honour.

    On a closing note, did you know that all languages have very similar words for mother and father

    What that doesn’t explain Lizzie is the agreement as to which means which. If your explanation were true, half the worlds languages would have papa/baba meaning mother. They don’t.

    A better explanation is that the words were in the earliest language, for the reasons you give, and because every culture needs the words they have persisted.

    Texas Bullion Depository Open for Business

    he Texas Bullion Depository officially opened for business this week. The creation of the facility represents a power-shift away from the federal government, and sets the foundation to undermine the Federal Reserve’s monopoly on money.

    In June 2015, Gov. Greg Abbot signed legislation creating the state gold bullion and precious metal depository. The facility will not only provide a secure place for individuals, business, cities, counties, government agencies and even other countries to store gold and other precious metals, the law also creates a mechanism to facilitate the everyday use of gold and silver in transactions. In short, a person will eventually be able to deposit gold or silver – and pay other people through electronic means or checks – in sound money.

    This is Mark Prytz, I was at Xavier 1966 – 1969.
    I am trying to find any information I can about Fr. Peter Beer,
    he was at Xavier in 1969 only.
    He came from the USA where he had been studying and after Xavier he returned there.
    Any stories at all about him? I know he was acting inappropriately with some boys.
    Was he the Boarders Master? I can’t remember if he actually taught any subjects.
    His room was near the senior boarders’ common room.

    Also any other stories or information about inappropriate behaviour, physical abuse or sexual abuse would be helpful.
    Most of the offenders are well known, P.J. Stephenson, “Brick” Bradford, Willi Kovac,
    Paul Schulze, Richard Galbraith and others.
    I am, with another ex-student, trying to put together a full picture of what actually went on during the 1960’s – 1970’s.

    Regardless of what anyone might think about Paul Manafort individually, the fact that a federal judge is willing to put a white-collar defendant behind bars until trial is absurd. Paul Manafort has been charged with tax avoidance and financial crimes stemming from 2006 and 2009. [Detention order pdf below] Manafort is accused of contacting a possible witness in the case; however, the prosecution refuses to tell Manafort who the witnesses or victims are. His defense argues that it’s impossible to avoid contact with witnesses when the prosecution won’t tell the court who the witnesses are. So the judge throws him in jail.

    Of course both the prosecutor and the judge are partisan Dems.

    LOL what a pack of losers. The evidence submitted of his witness tampering is open-and-shut.

    The prosecutor said Manafort, a day after being hit with a revised criminal indictment on Feb. 23, phoned a principal in a public relations firm who had worked on an effort to lobby for the nation of Ukraine. The effort involved a group of former European politicians known as the Hapsburg Group.

    Manafort called the PR man, identified only as D1, while that man was a passenger in a car driven by his wife in Italy, the prosecutor said.

    “This is Paul, Paul Manafort. I need to give you a heads up about the Hapsburg Group,” Manafort said, according to the prosecutor.

    D1 immediately hung up, the prosecutor said.

    Mueller’s team has said that two days later, Manafort sent D1 an encrypted message containing an article related to the Hapsburg Group, adding in the note: “We should talk. I have made it clear that they worked in Europe.”

    D1 has told Mueller’s investigators that he believed Manafort was trying to get him to falsely state that the Hapsburg Group had limited its lobbying efforts to Europe. In fact, the group had also sought to influence opinion in the United States, without registering as required.

    He thought he could get away with it by using encryption. Bop baw, gaol for you.

Up the coast to Two Rocks, then across to the Lancelin road and back towards home. Onto the Freeway and here he is — boy hoon in his Supra piece of crap with the 44-gallon muffler and drainpipe exhaust. He accelerates onto the Freeway and plants his foot. No problem to keep up with him on the bike, apart from the crap that’s spewing out the back of his car. In fact, it feels sorta … damp.
    Then he upchanges and there is an almighty bang and about a metre of flame out of the exhaust pipe.

He was halfway between a slave master and a father figure.” During the 1963-1964 term, he served as law clerk for the Supreme Court Associate Justice Arthur Goldberg. He told Tom Van Riper of Forbes that getting a Supreme Court clerkship was probably his second big break; his first was when, at age 14 or 15, a camp counselor told him he was smart but that his mind operated a little differently.[17] He joined the faculty of Harvard Law School as an assistant professor in 1964, and was made a full professor in 1967 at the age of 28, at that time the youngest full professor of law in the school’s history.[20] He was appointed Felix Frankfurter professor of law in 1993.[4]

    Much of his legal career has focused on criminal law, and his clients have included high-profile figures such as Patty Hearst, Harry Reems, Leona Helmsley, Jim Bakker, Mike Tyson, Michael Milken, O.J. Simpson and Kirtanananda Swami. Dershowitz also reports to have been one of Nelson Mandela’s lawyers.[21] He sees himself as a “lawyer of last resort” – someone to turn to when the defendant has few other legal options – and takes those cases that are what he calls “the most challenging, the most difficult and precedent-setting cases”.[22] He is currently advising Julian Assange’s legal team.[23]

    You know, the thing that kind hits me about this Trump Wussia thing, wasn’t just the partisanship shown in the emails and texts. They spoke about getting rid of an elected president, but they never mentioned wussian collushion. These idiots would have surely known about it, but there’s nothing.

    Leaving all that aside, I’m wondering why are you rejoicing in this?
    So he is a sacked ex campaign manager for the Trump camp, so what?

    “So what if some two-bit burglars broke into the Watergate? They didn’t steal nothin’. They can’t touch Nixon.”

    I know I’m not following this saga as closely as you do, but in heaven’s name how do you connect Trump to it?

    The guy did dirty deals well before the election, and not connected to it either.

  185. JC

    By prosecutor, Monty means the man today revealed as a sizable financial donor to Barack Obama and the DNC. He was also present at Hillary Clinton’s election night party.

    This is more than a little concerning because it’s so blatant and yet they not only not give a shit about their partisanship showing up, they also succeed without a care in the world about a legal reprisal.

    Anyone still think the left is not in ascendancy and that we haven’t reached peak leftism?

  186. I know I’m not following this saga as closely as you do, but in heaven’s name how do you connect Trump to it?

    Perhaps you should educate yourself, Mark A. The list of secret contacts between the Trump campaign/administration and Russian agents is almost endless.

    I’m sure that US$4,700 made all the difference to Hillary’s campaign. Although it is only 3.6% of the price Trump paid to silence the porn star with whom he cheated on his third wife just after the birth of their child.

    OK I yield.

    But I ask again, if there is and ‘endless list’ what are waiting for?
    Why isn’t that ‘crook’ in jail yet, or at least impeached?

    You were giving us hope near on 2 years now, how long more do we have to wait?

    And are you going to go to apologise if this fizzles out as nothing in the end, or cry foul?

    Yep, and Clinton got impeached, didn’t he. If you’ve got the Dersh on your team, you know you’re going to lose bigly.

    Impeachment is the committal or indictment, effectively (made by the House).

    The Senate runs the trial.

    Clinton was acquitted on both counts and remained President.

    So how did he “lose bigly” because Dershowitz?

    Monst, that link you provided is just another example of fake news. Every single indictment coming from Meuller’s office touching the people mentioned in that link have not been about Russian collushion.

    Another example
    Sessions talking to the Russian ambassador is not collushion, you ridiculous lesbian. Your link mentions Sessions spoke to the Russian ambassador at a Washington hotel. By keeping the narrative so barren and bare, the obvious intention is to imply something sinister. Except it wasn’t sinister. They when they met at a party/function.

    Are you really this stoopid?

    Yep, and Clinton got impeached, didn’t he. If you’ve got the Dersh on your team, you know you’re going to lose bigly.

    Impeachment doesn’t mean what you think it means, you moron. It means the House of Reps publicly discusses the merits of charges to be brought against a sitting president and vote on it. If the impeachment/indictment succeeds it then goes to the Senate, which is like a trial of sorts…. as dot mentions.

    STFU because you don’t know what you’re talking about, you obese lesbian.

    Another extremely stupid comment. The $4,700 may not have been significant to Crooked’s campaign seeing the Saudi money was flowing, but it could very well have been a material sum to the donor, which is of course dependent on his income.

    Are you just hallucinating or simply nuts?

  199. JC

    I can’t recall the exact amounts, but there are legal limits a person can donate to a campaign and 4,700 may be the limit directly from an individual.

    I’ve said a few times around the traps that the media should take a very close look at our Kenyan Senayor (and hubby). How can you own six houses within two years of arriving here and then pretend you didn’t know why Centrelink was putting money into your account? And why the hell is a South Australian senator using taxpayer funds for trips home to Kenya – what possible relationship does South Australia have to Kenya of all places? Lo and behold the Sunday Telly has a story on Lucy the Kenyan using taxpayer funds for a birthday bash. Of course the Telly is highlighting that Lucy is a Liberal senator now. Keep digging folks there’s plenty more where that came from.

    Here’s the problem for you and the D’rats, monst. Success, in the midterms for the D’rats, is highly dependent on the Mueller investigation. If the Mueller investigation comes out short and the public sees it as a witch hunt, they’re/you are fucked. The electoral punishment and the legal implications from crooked on down will be extremely severe. Don’t bet the ranch on a bluff.

    Public perception is growing that this is a witch hunt.

  203. Why isn’t that ‘crook’ in jail yet, or at least impeached?

    Because Congress is controlled by Republicans, and they are shitscared of getting primaried by the loons who control the grassroots, thus they are not going to stick up for the rule of law. Unless Trump actually goes on a gun-toting killing spree (and even then it would depend on who he killed), we’re not going to see impeachment until after the blue wave in November.

    The IPCC has made amazing progress with the complicit media pushing the fake lines contained in those exective summaries about climate change and the sky falling for years.

Our own Bonking Billy Short-One can join the “Me Too” crowd and get his bulbous head into that shot, just to prove that he is a fully-fledged member of the Leftard Leadership, and then all three could give the punters a sincere ‘hand-on-heart’ 3-hour lecture on their ‘deep and abiding respect’ for the wymminses, as only a Lefty can.

    Regarding the self-destructing global laughing-stock Trudeaup, I wonder whether the nomadic eyebrows were actually genuine and it was the other bit which was the prosthetic?

  223. Herodotus

    The liberals deserve to have a dash of cold water all over themselves. There’s a lot of anger over several issues, and the ABC is one. Power is the top one for many, while a general drift leftwards is the wallpaper behind the red hot items.
    The Australian Conservatives energy policy is the only sensible one, and a vote for them sends two messages. One relates to policies and creeping leftism, while the other is that the Libs miss out on the couple of bucks per vote that usually gets tipped into their coffers. That in the past had to be made good by a hefty contrib by MT himself.

  231. From None’s link:

    Leo Varadkar said that when the new laws liberalizing abortion come into effect, even Catholic institutions will have to offer the procedure.

    Individual doctors, nurses or midwives will be allowed to refrain from committing abortions on conscience grounds, but whole institutions will not have this option.

    Why not? Why should a Catholic institution have these same protections, unless, of course, an aim of this legislation is, in fact, to dissolve such institutions. Liberal neutrality, my arse.

    According to the BBC, Varadkar’s government is currently writing a law that would allow abortion on demand up to 12 weeks on healthy babies and “in extreme cases” up to 24 weeks.

    The Irish taoiseach (“chief”) said that the new law would follow the model of the “Protection of Life During Pregnancy Act 2013” which provided for abortion in certain circumstances and allowed medical personnel to opt out.

    Look at the Orwellian title of that bill.
