    I see Ace has turned on Matt Drudge, accusing him of being a Miami lay-about.

    I’ve noticed for some time that Drudge has developed a case of the Charles Johnsons. He slept through the crazy phase of Wussia and Mueller completely; basically, he played the ‘story’ straight.

    Rones, one last thing. You seem to be really upset I bought an apartment in NYC. Do I detect a little envy there? Renos are starting in the next two weeks, I was informed this evening. Look, if you go to another blog, I’ll let you stay there for a week max. But it has to be for a year. You’ll love the place after its finished. Seeing it’s mid century the architect is adding a tone deferential to that period – not a copy as I don’t like a copies. You’ll be allowed to stay in February, which is the coldest most miserable time of the year to be there. It will suit you.

    Complete infantry section sacked over “sexist” Farebook posts about phony female “combat” “soldiers.” You read that right.

    Sex-text soldiers shown the door.

    Seven male soldiers posted to the first regiment to accept females in combat roles have been sacked for writing texts and Facebook posts about making sexual advances ­towards the women.

    The discreet dismissal of what is almost a complete infantry section at 1 Royal Australian Regiment in north Queensland in June involved two separate incidents in connection with two women soldiers last year. Defence this week confirmed the sackings but ­declined to provide further details on privacy grounds.

    However, insiders said the sackings were finalised in June and involved posts and texts about two women who had recently joined the Townsville-based regiment. In the first incident, two soldiers were sacked after they made comments on a closed platoon Facebook page about inviting a ­female soldier to a social function, said the source.

    He said one soldier suggested they invite the woman because she was “hot” and the soldier wanted to have a “crack”, to which a second soldier replied: “I’d join, ha ha.”

    The posts were reported to commanders and both men were told they were to be sacked. They sought to contest the sackings but were unsuccessful despite one of the men, who made the “I’d join” comment, being considered a highly competent soldier.

    In the second incident, the source said, a recent female recruit to the regiment attended a social event that was being held at ­ soldiers’ accommodation.

    Four soldiers at the event then texted each other about wanting to “roast” her — a comment that had sexual connotations, he said.

    Another soldier, who was being investigated for stalking the woman on social media, reported the texts to senior officers. All five men were sacked.

    It is understood the sackings have shocked many in the regiment as several other male soldiers had been charged with offences relating to assault and drink-driving but did not face dismissal.

    A Defence spokesman said an inquiry was undertaken into allegations of unacceptable behaviour by soldiers in Townsville late last year.

    “As a result of the inquiry, ­administrative action was taken and seven members had their service in the Australian Defence Force terminated,’’ he said.

    These worthless female “combat” soldiers (LOL) can’t take a gentle ribbing on Facebook.

    Roger Stone is playing very dirty.

    AGW not scary enough for Halloween? OK, try this one on for size.
    The BBC was giving high profile to a WWF report that “nature is dying”, or at least that the biosphere was losing its inhabitants of a wild character at an alarming rate. Species are dropping like flies in a Moreton storm.
    Their chosen expert ventured some remedies, something he’d advise his mum when she asked “what can I do about this?”
    His answer: eat less meat and tell your local member of parliament you’re concerned about the species losses.

  23. pete m

    What is the link to Roger Stone?

  24. Herodotus

    The BBC is also inclined to report the election of a conservative in Brazil as some sort of scary event, a mistake, a disturbance in The Force.
    It couldn’t possibly be because the voters were totally sick of lefties and voted, repeat voted for a more sensible leader?

    Breast cancer Strong medications do not always help

    Doctors return the therapies for breast cancer. The previous methods are obviously too violent. Some patients are even advised to leave the tumor alone and only to observe.

    “Less is more” – this is the motto used by more and more cancer congresses worldwide. Tumors are no longer treated in all cases with hard drugs, sometimes doctors even advise to wait. For breast cancer, this is the drug of choice for many patients. The Dutch breast cancer specialist Emiel Rutgers from the University of Amsterdam explains what that means on the occasion of the Berlin Breast Cancer Congress.

    DIE WELT : How well can breast cancer sufferers be helped today?

    Emiel Rutgers : We can cure 80 percent of the patients. The problem is the metastases. When women die, it’s because the tumor has spread and comes back.

    THE WORLD : “Less is more”, what does that mean in breast cancer treatment?

    Emiel Rutgers : We doctors have gone too far. We treat the women too harshly. And many doctors still think, a lot of chemotherapy, a lot of radiation, many surgeries – that helps. But the most important message of recent years is that the gentler we treat, the better it is. Women live longer and relapse rates fall. In the future, we will continue to drastically reduce therapy. This is a revolution at the end of my career.

    DIE WELT : Which therapies can be omitted?

    Rutgers : For example, the amputation of the breast, which is still done for every third woman. In the old days, we thought we needed to remove the breast to heal women. That’s a mistake. The amputee women are not getting better and they are not surviving anymore. The amputation closes a fence from which the horses have already broken out – because the dangerous thing is the emigrated cancer cells.

    THE WORLD : Amputations will become an exception?

    Rutgers : Not only that, operations in general. We have a massive problem of over-diagnosis of breast cancer: We are discovering more and more small carcinomas that would never have made the woman complaint. They are very lazy and harmless. In the Netherlands, we decided not to treat certain, very small growths any more, but to wait and observe.

    DIE WELT : How stressful is it for women if they have to live with the knowledge of a tumor?

    Rutgers: We need to redefine what breast cancer is. It is in our hands. And: most are afraid of the side effects of chemo and radiation. They would be glad if they did not need that.

    DIE WELT : Are there any other patients who will refrain from surgery in the future?

    Rutgers : The vast majority. Today we give some patients chemotherapy before the operation. Because the drugs eliminate all cancer cells, the breast cancer is no longer detectable. But the guidelines still prescribe to cut out the tissue at the former breast cancer stove. We will let that be in the future, I expect. We will only operate on patients whose tumor does not respond to the drugs and patients with a high hereditary risk of dying from breast cancer. But that is a minority.

    THE WORLD : At present, doctors remove the sentinel lymph nodes under the armpit and finally every third woman with all lymph nodes. Will this operation be superfluous?

    Rutgers : I think so, yes. Behind it stood a fatal mistake: We believed that the cancerous cells spread through the lymph nodes into the body. That’s not true. And recent studies show that it is good to treat affected lymph nodes with chemo and radiation. But when we cut them out, it only causes problems for women: they can store water in their arms, and they swell up and hurt. In the fingers they have no real feeling anymore.

    THE WORLD : Most women fear chemo. Can doctors prescribe them more economically in the future?

    Rutgers : In any case, this trend is in full swing. There are breast cancers that we only treat with hormones. That works well. And for the other cases, we have genetic tests that tell us which woman has a low risk of relapse and therefore does not need chemo. In the Mindact study, 41 percent of the women we still give chemo today, but no need.

    DIE WELT : Your approach, of course, also relieves the health system. What savings do you expect?

    Rutgers : I never deliberately mention that. Because I care about the life of every single woman and about finding the best therapy for each one. Of course, the costs of the health system would go down, but that’s not my focus.

    THE WORLD : How do your colleagues react to your vision of minimal therapy?

    Rutgers : It’s a long, long way. There is a lot of approval. But some do not like me taking their toys from them.

    An exclusive Toronto private school for girls has fired its principal for hosting an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice without warning students about its anti-S3mitic content.

    The play was reimagined and set in Nazi Germany, and invited audience interaction with chants of “Burn the J3ws” and other overt Nazi imagery.

    The production by a British theatre company is aimed at young people, and though it has been staged at schools in the U.K. for 20 years, it was further developed over the course of a two-week residency at the Toronto boarding school. After it was staged Oct. 17, the audience — mainly students in Grade 11 — was divided and parents complained, which led the school to apologize.

    It was an “an error to present that particular version of the play,” the school said. “Furthermore, the appropriate context was not provided to students to prepare them.”

    Mueller should learn to check his privilege and front up for questioning. If he’s got nothing to hide, then of course he’s got nothing to worry about. But… if he gets the slightest detail wrong… ah ha! Perjury!! All perfectly reasonable, and could not be happening to a nicer agent.

    Just between you and me, we know he’s done something wrong… anyone who has got ahead in government must have done something to get that far. We don’t need to know all the details. Keep at him until he goes bankrupt or gives up.

    That’s how it works for regular folks… am I missing anything?

    Yup, Monty standard justice… no evidence required, accusation alone is sufficient because we somehow know he’s done something.

    Definitely this has to apply to Mueller as well. This is just the sort of crime he would commit. We can send some sniffer dogs around and after the dog says he’s guilty, that confirms it.

    WWF might also consider that ecological disasters emanate in the main from badly run countries. We have plenty of green belts, plenty of reserved habitats, probably more than enough national parks, marine parks, strictly managed fisheries, and a voluminous book of restrictions about farming.
    The problems with oceans stem from over fishing or from plastic and other pollution, neither of which apply here. The vast majority of those pesky plastics and assorted floating rubbish in the oceans come from Asian, Indian and African rivers.
    Killing of various animals in Africa – elephant and rhino being two prime examples, but mountain gorillas are suffering too – by poachers, is an administrative issue that they just can’t seem to cope with. Indonesia remains a problem area with respect to orangutans, which need reserves that can’t be bulldozed for more palm oil plantations. I’m sure there are lots of variants on the story around the world, including the Amazon basin, but the risk in our country and others like it is that the left go too far towards the other extreme, giving us debacles like “you farmers can’t clear native veg regrowth”, or Gladys & Co. sponsoring another unnecessary marine park complete with a ban on amateur anglers – since ditched.
    So before the WWF tell us all to “eat less meat” and “lobby your MP” they should refine their focus to where the real problems are.

    Why don’t their vicpol make available the workcover claims by gender of their new diversity policing experiment?.

    We see vicpol is moving towards policing from facebook for thoughtcrimes, and policing crimes against diversity from the offended and enraged, and socially engineering the public debate by financial penalties against non-Stalinist debate and reducing speed limits and electronically booking car drivers with camera robots.

    Is their new politically activist, social engineering vicpol experiment no longer capable of physically interventionist:

    “Stop In The Name Of The Law”

    policing?.

    So must work from Bollarded offices, doing facebook and camera duties, sending fines by email because occupational health and safety and diversity quotas have produced a workforce that in the 2020’s can do nothing else?.

    What does this mean for the social engineering diversity experiment that their Andrews Nazgul yarragrad State will do to firefighting through purges after the election?.

    There is a reason that anti-cfa purges haven’t been in the papers in the leadup to this election, they are saving them up for the big kill.

    I know this, because I taught hundreds of these young mem in high school.

    Property developer win home after winning squatter’s rights case

    A PROPERTY developer has got his hands on a million-dollar home for absolutely nothing after emer­ging victorious in a bizarre squatter’s rights case.

    Developer and tax agent Bill Gertos stumbled across the empty house in Ashbury 20 years ago and began to put into motion a series of events that have culminated in him striking property gold.

    Over two decades he changed the locks, renova­ted the house and started renting it out — despite not being the legal owner of 6 Malleny St. And it is this that has now allowed him to claim the house under squatter’s rights.

    This is the house Bill Gertos stumbled across 20 years ago. Picture: Christian Gilles

    It is an arcane law that­ ­allows for individuals to be granted ownership of prop­erties if they have openly ­occupied it for more than 12 years without permission of the owners. It usually ­applies to people who “take possession” by moving into the home.

    Mr Gertos told the NSW Supreme Court he discovered the house, now estimated to be worth $1.7 million, in 1998 after visiting a client who lived on the same street.

    Noticing it ­appeared empty, he asked around and was told the elderly woman who lived their had died.

    After knocking on the front door, Mr Gertos ent­ered the house through the back door which was “hanging off its hinges” and found it empty but filled with rubbish and old furniture.

    The next day he paid a builder to install new locks and renovated the home. He then started renting it out.

    After doing this for more than 19 years, Mr Gertos last year made an application to the NSW Registrar-General to claim squatter’s rights on the property and be listed as its owner on the titles.

    In October 2017, the Registrar-General gave notice of its intention to grant the ­application made by Mr Gertos but was served an ­injunction by the family of Henry Thompson Downie, a deceased man who had bought the property in 1927.

    They argued Mr Gertos had not possessed the property in an “open manner”, as is required by squatter’s rights, because he had not moved into the property but just rented it out.

    However, yesterday the Supreme Court found that Mr Gertos’s possession of the property had been “open, not secret; peaceful, not by force; and adverse, not by consent of the true owner” as required by squatter’s right laws.

    The court discharged the injunction blocking the Registrar-General from registering him as the owner and ordered the family to pay costs.

    Arky, they fully intend to Purge young men that do not take orders from women from any place in society.

    By allowing masculine hiding places in armed forces and emergency services, the fashionable theory is that aggressive masculinity itself is allowed to survive.

    The priority is genocide of energetic masculinity, burning down a few cities and capitulating a few battles is a cheap cost given the aim is fundamental and eternal transformation of the human race.

He also flared too early and ran out of energy resulting in a higher than expected rate of descent when they hit the water. About twice what the designers intended for a ditching. The flight attendant at the back was lucky the floor beam didn’t kill her and the passengers and crew were lucky they didn’t drown thanks to the quick thinking an actions of the unorganised militia of the United States.

    Ya gotta feel sorry for both the men and women in the private/lance corporal infantry ranks who are being manipulated for a social experiment.

    They’re being told it’s all about providing the best combat solution for the Army.

    At the same time of course it’s not – it’s social experimentation by those above them in order to get promotion.

    The low rank soldiers are the ones who will get the boot when they don’t conform with weird ideas and demands that they realise are illogical and unfair – but it’s obey or leave.

    Awful for them.

    The type of young man who joins the military espeacially will not take orders from females.

    And I covered for dozens of female colleagues who had no idea of how to handle them.

    Rita Panahi: Political correctness is killing off comedy

    COMEDY great Mel Brooks was right when he warned that our “stupidly politically correct” culture would be “the death of comedy”.

    Thanks to a tiny but loud minority of miserable moaners, including a number of alleged comics, The Simpsons is under intense pressure to drop a much loved character from the program.

    Apu Nahasapeemapetilon is in danger of being deported from Springfield after close to 30 years of loyal service as the hardworking, polite and forever cheerful Kwik-E-Mart owner. Apparently, the stereotypes underpinning his character including his adorable accent offend the perpetually offended.

    Might be bit hard depicting him as the workers’ friend:

    Labor’s candidate for the electorate of Bennelong, leading doctor Brian Owler, has hit back at the Liberal Party for circulating mater­ial suggesting he charged patients up to 200 per cent above the amount covered by Medicare.

    The Sydney-based neuro­surgeon, a former president of the Australian Medical Association, said he charges patients “slightly less than industry standard” after his “fees policy” showed he charged “at or below” what is recom­mended by the AMA for private practitioners.

    The AMA recommends a fee of $1030 for brain surgery that treats Parkinson’s disease — Dr Owler’s specialty — while Medicare covers $340 of the fee of the procedure.

    “Dr Owler is a world-renowned neurosurgeon who has saved countless lives and eased suffering for thousands,’’ a spokesman for Labor said last night.

    “Neurosurgery is never typical and fees depend on patient need. Dr Owler charges slightly less than industry standard.”

    Bennelong MP John Alexander, a Liberal backbencher and forme­r tennis champion, used Dr Owler’s fees policy to label him “Mr Mastercard”.

    Bill Shorten had earlier called Dr Owler — a key campaigner against the Abbott government’s proposed co-payment in the 2014 budget — “Mr Medicare”, when unveiling him as the party’s candid­ate in John Howard’s forme­r electorate.

    “According to his own website, Mr Owler is more like Mr Mastercard — Medicare doesn’t even rate a mention on his fees page,” Mr ­Alexander said.

    Dr Owler lives outside the electorate in a $3.85 million home in the affluent suburb of Wahroonga, in the adjoining seat of Bradfield.

    He owns doctors’ rooms in the northwestern Sydney suburbs of Bella Vista and Norwest, and works out of private practices includ­ing the Norwest Private Hospital, Macquarie University Hos­pit­al and Westmead Private Hospital. He also works at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, where he does not charge out-of-pocket fees.

    Asylum seeker families are being quietly moved from Nauru to Adelaide by the Federal Government

    Prime Minister Scott Morrison yesterday said the number of children at the regional processing centre on Nauru was continuing to fall.

    “We’ve been getting about this quietly. We haven’t been showboating about it, we haven’t been doing any of those things,’’ Mr Morrison said.

    “We have just been getting on and dealing with these issues in the appropriate way in accordance with our policies.

    “Policies that not only have reduced the number of children on Nauru, but has ensured that no children are going to Nauru.’’

    Mr Morrison said asylum seeker children on Nauru were not held in detention and lived in the local community. He said Australians should treat Nauru with respect.

    The sinister identity politics agenda of ‘new’ Labor

    Subscriber only

    SINCE the implosion of the federal Liberal Party in August, opinion polls now point towards a Labor government next year.

    But with the media distracted by Liberal infighting, the sinister nature of new Labor has escaped the attention it deserves.

    The final draft of the ALP national policy platform, just finalised for their 48th national conference on 16-18 December, is as good a place as any to find out what Bill Shorten and his team have in mind for us.

    This is the seminal document mapping the DNA of what is likely the next government, and what we find is that the Labor Party has been captured by fringe identity activists.

    The 224 page document is supposed to be an expression of Labor’s values and beliefs but it is riddled with the language of identity politics and the rainbow agenda, almost to the exclusion of its traditional party values.

    There are 64 mentions of “sexual orientation”, for instance, 59 of “intersex”, 42 of “LGBTI”, 36 of “transgender”, 33 of “bisexual”, 31 of “lesbian”, 29 of “gay”, along with several mentions of transphobia, biphobia and homophobia.

    “Gender” gets a whopping 138 mentions including 19 mentions of “gender identity” and five of “gender pay gap”.

    Diversity gets 27 mentions, including Labor’s promise to adopt a “50 per cent gender diversity target for government boards to be achieved within the first term of a Labor government.”

    There are 42 mentions of “identity”, appropriately enough.

    And there’s a promise to establish under the Human Rights Act “a new Commissioner for Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity and Intersex Status issues”.

    CBA to sell off colonial first state.

    Why compete against the coming decades of shortenism.

  103. I think we’ve seen the result of equating a certain type of personhood (being female) with having special or different rights. It is the new QLD abortion laws. If it isn’t the cause of those laws, then what is. Even if you specify another cause, that difference in rights is used as a basis to argue for that new legal status.

    No. The new QLD abortion laws reflect the continued incoherence of the law with respect to the child in utero. The law even before the current statute treated the child in utero in a manner wholly different from that of the child postpartum. You are not entitled to kill your 5-month-old tot for health or social reasons, but you are allowed to do so to your 5-month-old child in utero for the above. What gives? It’s not the special status of the mother that allows this, but the incoherence of the law relating to the child in utero.

    Because the woman has more self-awareness than a kid who is 18 months old.

    Sure, but the relevance of ‘self-awareness’ here is only that the mother might have herself contributed to the death of the child she was carrying, not merely the husband that ran her over. In fact, it might have been entirely her fault. You still haven’t presented anything that presents a complication. If the mother was carrying a tot in her arms when the husband ran her over the principles to be applied are entirely the same ones we would want to be applied in the instance in which she may have been carrying that child in her womb.

    The vehicle-vehicle accident is different again.

    Different in what relevant sense? You’ve failed up to now to present any substantive difficulty with Zoe’s law.

    Gibberin McKibben rears his ugly bonce to instruct the plebs that they deserve to lose any say about what their betters know is good for them by neutering democracy via “treaties”.

    We, the undersigned, support the call for the UK and other OECD governments to negotiate a fossil fuel non-proliferation treaty to complement the Paris agreement on climate change, as proposed in your article “We need a fossil fuel non-proliferation treaty – and we need it now” (theguardian.com, 23 October).

    The latest report from the IPCC shows we cannot afford to burn the vast majority of remaining reserves of fossil fuels if we are to keep warming below 1.5 or even 2 degrees. A new line in the sand is needed. We support an agreement with a moratorium on any further expansion of the fossil fuel industry in rich countries, together with a fund to support renewable energy development in poorer countries to reduce the need for fossil fuels, paid for by redirecting the staggering $10m per minute that governments currently spend on fossil fuel subsidies. The best way to mark the 50th anniversary of the nuclear non-proliferation treaty would be to begin negotiation of its fossil fuel equivalent.

They will succeed when there are millions of accompanying individual decarbonisation plans being implemented by each and every one of us. And we can start now. I look forward to seeing significantly less traffic on our roads, reduced flights from our airports, reduced heating and lighting in all our buildings, reduced building and construction, and reduced needless stuff being sold in our supermarkets and shopping malls.

    Bulger was found dead only a day after he arrived at the West Virginia prison. The penitentiary is a high-security facility with 1,270 male prisoners. “No staff or other inmates were injured, and at no time was the public in danger,” the Bureau of Prisons said.

    Bulger, who lived a double life as a mobster and as a secret FBI informant, and then became one of the country’s most-wanted fugitives, was serving a life sentence after being convicted in 2013 of a litany of crimes, including participating in 11 murders.

    Whatever the intention, the amendment seems pretty clear:

    . All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

    If you’re born in the US, you are automatically both a US citizen and of the state where you are born.
    The winnable argument of course is that, this doesn’t mean parents of the child are conferred any rights to live in the US – only the kid has that right, I believe also expires at either 18 or 21, or so I believe. If this is correct I can’t see how the right to US citizenship, recognized by the Constitution, can have an age limit., but there you go.

    I think it’s pretty clear. If you are there illegally, then you have no rights to citizenship.
