    And guess what it was? … Mohammed!

    Now there’s a shock.

    Steyn:

    On Wednesday night Tucker Carlson was subject to an outrageous thug assault on his home by pampered decadent “anti-fascists” and “anti-racists” who have no idea what those words mean – and that, when you’re battering on a front door and forcing the woman inside to hide in the pantry in terror, you’re the fascist.

    The corruption in the USA is beyond anything ever seen in a Western democracy:

    Former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman will not be charged in abuse investigation, prosecutor says.

    Eric Schneiderman, the former New York Attorney General who stepped down after multiple women came forward with allegations of assault, will not face criminal charges, the prosecutor tasked with overseeing the case told CNN.

    Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas told CNN Thursday morning that her team interviewed members of Schneiderman’s security detail, employees who worked with him at the New York Attorney General’s office and witnesses. Singas was appointed to be the special prosecutor overseeing the investigation…

    New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood appointed Singas as the special prosecutor in this case at the request of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. She worked with District Attorneys Tim Sini of Suffolk County and Cy Vance of Manhattan, where the alleged crimes occurred.

    Underwood, Singas, Cuomo, Sini and Vance are all Democrats.

  13. C.L.

    So then: the Democrat Party wants to impeach Brett Kavanaugh for crimes that never happened but it pulled every string to get Schneiderman off – despite the fact that he admits to bashing multiple women in a dedicated sex dungeon. You could not possibly make this shit up.

    Yet another white school-girl bashed and kicked in the head by Aboriginal ‘students’ at a conventional shithole state school – this time in Queensland.
    Report and video.

  17. Oh come on

    I’m sure the following has been commented on, but have to highlight the hollow words of the useless Liberal blowhard in Melb:

    Opposition Leader Matthew Guy said all possible resources should be deployed to ensure such events did not occur again.

    “As a father, as a parent, as a life-long Melburnian I say enough is enough.

    “We do not have to live like this. Melburnians do not have to endure this, the third such event in as many years.”

    OK so enough is enough, you don’t have to live like this, fine. What exactly are you proposing to do to solve the problem? ‘Deploy all possible resources’ is not a strategy. Strategies need to have specific measures that produce quantifiable outcomes.

  18. Oh come on

    Yet another white school-girl bashed and kicked in the head by Aboriginal ‘students’ at a conventional shithole state school – this time in Queensland.

    You should see it when the Maori and Aboriginal students in rough schools get into a barmy. By crikey, they hate each other. The Maori kids are almost always heavily outnumbered but they can generally hold their own.

  19. Yet another white school-girl bashed and kicked in the head by Aboriginal ‘students’ at a conventional shithole state school – this time in Queensland. – Report and video.

    Video footage exists. Police are aware of the problem.

    Everything in Melbourne is back to normal. CMFEU spokesman Dan is standing up with the nonentity of a police chief and ‘condemning’ the people they continue to allow to murder innocent Melburnians. At the same time, Diversity Dan is telling us that he will spend more and more of his ‘surplus’ budget moneys on absolutely unnecessary lefty, vote-buying nonsense and not mentioning the billion dollars he wasted on Anything But the East West Link. His ‘surplus’, by the way, is by virtue of selling the Port of Melbourne. We’ll be okay if he continues to sell the port once or twice a year.
    The stupidity of the people who vote for Dan the Dickhead astounds me until I consider who votes for him and why they vote for him. They really want to destroy the system and the state.

  29. Tintarella di Luna

    I notice there are no comments permitted on the both the stories on yesterday’s deadly terrorism in Bourke Street Melbourne. I wonder why? A backlash? It is amazing that it is at the feet of the authorities, the politicians and the insane left that this can all be laid.

    The lunacy began with Graeme ‘Whatever It Takes’ Richardson’s idea that the pathway to government was to preference the misanthropic Greens. Instead of preferencing them last and making them disappear.

    Labor emboldened the prosperity-hating lunacy of the Greens. and has abandoned the working class which is much more sensible and sane and is now captive behind the goat cheese-curtain. Preference the Greens last and the Greens will disappear.

    This beautiful letter in the Australian: A poignant piece by Christopher Dawson (“Soldiers’ brief lives shocked into poetry”, 9/11). Who can forget Rupert Brooke? The Greeks haven’t. If Greek soil can cover Brooke in a field that is forever England, then the Greeks here must be content with Australian soil that is forever Greece. If the locals on Skyros island where Brooke is buried can call him Brookis, Aussies can call the likes of me Arthur.

    Ocasio-Cortez’s district, New York’s 14th, has a foreign-born population that is now nearing almost 50 percent. About 45.8 percent of the district is foreign-born.

    The self-described socialist is expected to champion far-left policies such as nationwide and hemispheric open borders, Medicare for all, and the abolishment of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency.

    It’s amazing how consistently foreigners vote for what they escaped. A great argument against immigration. You don’t save them from the shit of their homeland, you just give them an opportunity to vote for the same shit in a new location.

    These people are not radicalised – they are following the dictates of Islam as laid out in the Koran.

    The often sneakily left BBC becomes less subtle: the World Business Report went full crackerdog on red meat in the latest segment.
    All three people on the show agreed that a tax on red meat was fair and reasonable, and that it would have a positive impact on climate change and general health.
    This is an interim “easy does it” stance on their part, as the ultimate target already being talked about is banning meat altogether.

    Lol:

    Specifically, there’s a suffragette in Saint Denis, the game’s analogue for New Orleans, who is campaigning for her right to vote. She stands on a public street with a sign and sash and loudly proclaims, “Let me vote.”

    One of the main reasons Red Dead Redemption 2 is such an interesting game is that it allows the player to approach and resolve situations in a variety of ways. Players can shoot, rob, talk to, and beat up almost any character they see, which at times leads to surprising outcomes. It’s this same design that allowed a YouTuber going by the handle Shirrako to upload a video of himself walking up to that suffragette and punching her unconscious. The video, titled “Red Dead Redemption 2 – Beating Up Annoying Feminist,” was uploaded on October 28 and currently has 1.2 million views.

    Shirrako, perhaps because they saw how popular the video became, quickly followed it up with a video of them trying to feed the suffragette to an alligator and another of them lassoing and leaving her on the train tracks to get hit by a train.

    His conclusions are that the East Asians (Chinese, Japanese and Koreans) have the highest mean IQ at 105. These are followed by the Europeans (IQ 100). Some way below these are the Inuit (Eskimos) (IQ 91), South East Asians (IQ 87), Native American Indians (IQ 87), Pacific Islanders (IQ 85), South Asians and North Africans (IQ 84). Well below these come the sub-Saharan Africans (IQ 67) followed by the Australian Aborigines (IQ 62).

    Boy that watchlist is effective. So as I understand it, the Bourke st terrorist was on the terror watch list and had his passport cancelled. So let’s just think that through, he was so dangerous the Federal Government wouldn’t let him travel overseas because he might kill foreigners. No, they didn’t revoke his citizenship and deport him because he was only a threat to Australians. If the person is bad enough to protect non Australians by refusing to let him travel overseas, why wouldn’t you deport him to stop him killing Australians?

    Rae,

    Surely the issue at stake is whether Foley sexually assaulted the lady. For mine, she should have gone straight to police and reported the assault. Who knows who Raper and Nicholls felt the need to tell. That is a natural human thing to do. Someone betrayed them, but I don’t think either of them ever claimed that they never told anyone else, just that they didn’t want it made public. At the end of the day if Foley has done this, and is trying to intimidate her into silence then he is a grub who should never have been the leader of a major political party.

  98. Roger

    Am I the only idiot who thinks the logic used here is the wrong way around.

    No.

    Ask a Federal politicians why they don’t implement a moratorium on Muslim migration, especially refugees.

    Answer: “Our immigration policy must remain non-discriminatory”.

    Response: “Our immigration policy should be very discriminatory – in favour of the safety of Australians. Protecting citizens and lawful residents is your first duty.”

    Bourke St horror: One murdered, police shoot armed attacker dead in terror attack
    David Hurley, Brianna Travers, Aneeka Simonis and Aleks Devic, Herald Sun
    22 minutes ago
    Subscriber only

    SPECIALIST police have swarmed on a house linked to the man behind yesterday’s horror Bourke St attack.

    Officers descended on the Werribee property — believed to be the home of attacker Hassan Khalif Shire Ali’s father — at about 8am.

    Video and images taken by the Herald Sun show masked officers standing guard at the home as forensic police took photos.

    The Herald Sun understands family are inside the house and are co operating with police.

    Officers are also raiding a Meadows Heights this morning.

    KILLER TERRORIST NAMED, IS CLAIMS BOURKE ST ATTACK

    A KNIFE-wielding man who launched a deadly attack in Bourke St yesterday is the brother of an accused terrorist alleged to have plotted a mass murder at Federation Square on New Year’s Eve.

    It comes as the Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the attack.

    The Somali-born Australian, named by police as 30-year-old Hassan Khalif Shire Ali, stabbed a man to death and injured two other men after his Holden Rodeo exploded in the CBD about 4.10pm.

    Police say they have spoken to the man’s wife — who is believed to have been radicalised.

    ATTACKER WAS ‘PERSON OF INTEREST’

    The Herald Sun can reveal the man’s brother is Ali Khalif Shire Ali, 21, from Werribee, who will face a Supreme Court trial after pleading not guilty to preparing and collecting documents to commit a terror attack in Federation Square on December 31, 2017.

    The Bourke St attacker, aged in his 30s, was also one of 300 “persons of interest” in Victoria, identified as posing a potential security risk and it is understood he had been watched by police.

    His passport had also been cancelled for several years.

    “He was a person of interest well-known to Victoria Police, the AFP and ASIO,” a source said.

    Ocasio-Cortez’s district, New York’s 14th, has a foreign-born population that is now nearing almost 50 percent. About 45.8 percent of the district is foreign-born.

    It’s amazing how consistently foreigners vote for what they escaped. A great argument against immigration. You don’t save them from the shit of their homeland, you just give them an opportunity to vote for the same shit in a new location.

    Census data shows Box Hill in Melbourne is 50% Mandarin speakers.
    High rise and low rise boxes everywhere.
    Visited a medical clinic there with a vary Anglo name, something like Andrew Roberts.

    When I got to see the Chinese doc she asked aggressively ‘Why are you here ?’
    She wasn’t enquiring about my medical problems. Chinese people have an attitude problem.

    For mine, she should have gone straight to police and reported the assault.

    John C – the important point to note is that Raper stated she didn’t report the alleged assault as she was more concerned about her wonderful ALPBC jerb as a political reporter being derailed.

    Both Raper and Nicholls covered up the alleged assault for reasons that have already been identified on this blog. Had the groper been a liberal or national politician, there are no prizes for correctly guessing that a similar assault would not have been covered up (by mutual agreement) for two years until leaked by a fourth party.

    ASIO boss Duncan, we need more Islamic immigrants to help spy on the dangerous Islamic immigrants already here, Lewis will urgently request that government import all remaining Somalis in Somalia to Melbourne, soon to be renamed Mogadishu South, so ASIO can more effectively administer its very effective terror watchlist. This mass migration won’t be a problem, because, according to Lewis, there is no connection between Islam and terror or refugees from North and East Africa and terror.

    IMAMS CONDEMN CBD TERROR ATTACK

    The Board Of Imams Victoria in a statement last night said it was “shocked and extremely saddened” to learn of what had occurred.

    President Sheikh Isse Abdo Musse said: “There is no place for violence in our society.”

    “We must stand united in the face of evil,’’ he said.

    The board expressed its “deep sense of gratitude to the men and women in our police force for their efforts in protecting the public.”

    “We call upon the members of the community to come forward and assist the victims and their families in any way possible,” it said.
    MORE POLICE FOR MAJOR EVENTS

    Mr Ashton said it was “highly likely” there would be additional police at major public events over the weekend, with Stakes Day at Flemington on Saturday and Remembrance Day on Sunday.

    “We are doing security reassessments in light of what’s occurred here in Melbourne in the late afternoon,” he said.

    “At this stage, we’re still encouraging obviously people to go to those events and we’ll be doing security overlay over those and it’s highly likely we’ll have additional police at all of those events over the course of the weekend.”

    David Jones has cancelled Saturday’s Christmas Concert on Bourke Street Mall, saying in a statement: “Safety is the number one priority for our customers and employees, and our thoughts are with those affected by this tragic incident.”

    Myer also cancelled the opening of its Christmas windows.

    Who knows who Raper and Nicholls felt the need to tell. That is a natural human thing to do. Someone betrayed them, but I don’t think either of them ever claimed that they never told anyone else, just that they didn’t want it made public.

    She says Sean Nicholls didn’t make it public:

    She said Sean Nicholls, who was then the state political editor at The Sydney Morning Herald and is now an ABC journalist, witnessed the incident.

    As he resigned the party leadership, Mr Foley said: ”The allegations against me today made public by the ABC are false.”

    Ms Raper said Mr Foley then left the bar and she discussed what had happened with Mr Nicholls.

    “As shaken as I was, I decided not to take any action and asked Sean to keep the events in the strictest confidence. He has honoured that,” her statement says.

    But then, there’s this:

    She said she had been contacted by another reporter about the matter earlier in the year and subsequently informed ABC news management about the encounter.

    “I told them I didn’t wish to make a complaint or for any further action to be taken,” she said. “They respected my request for privacy and have offered me nothing but their absolute care and support.”

    I think that:

    1. the reporter she was contacted by is her now fellow ABC reporter friend, Sean Nicholls.
    2. apart from herself and Nicholls being the possible leak sources, once she told ABC News management the leaking of the story was inevitable.

  121. Delta A

    Surely the issue at stake is whether Foley sexually assaulted the lady. For mine, she should have gone straight to police and reported the assault.

    No.

    I doubt there’s a woman alive (apart from SHY) who hasn’t had unwelcome advances at some stage.

    The proper response in this case would have been to declare loudly, “Get your hand out of my underwear!” Then point out the inequality in their positions and that his seniority does not give him the right to paw her body. Make sure everyone hears, so that there can be no doubt later about the assault, or any consequences that might arise.

    OTOH, if it was a case of mutual, flirty behaviour which she later regretted… Tough.

    Melbourne restaurant icon named as terror attack victim

    MELBOURNE is mourning one of the founders of the city’s famous coffee culture after the murder of Sisto Malaspina in Bourke Street’s terror attack yesterday.

    Mr Malaspina took over the Pellegrini’s espresso coffee bar in 1974 and maintained the tradition of the original owners.

    The cafe, on Bourke Street, was the first cafe in Melbourne to have an espresso coffee machine and developed a devoted following.

    Staff at the cafe were in mourning today, with the shop not expected to reopen until Monday.

    Police interviewed staff members last night about the incident, which has shattered Melbourne.

    In an interview with Hospitality Magazine last year, Mr Malaspina opened up about why people kept coming back to his coffee bar.

    “Pellegrini’s was the number one in the way it did things, the way things should be done – fresh ingredients, taken from the growers to the market to the shop. Everything done by hand.

    No mechanisation, no additives. Everything was simple, fresh and beautifully put together,” Mr Malaspina told the magazine.

    “And it hasn’t changed at all. It’s still the same menu, prepared in the same way. Slow cooking, no machinery, done by hand … This is the way food should be done. It’s not contemporary food. It’s secular, traditional, home cooking.”

    Pellegrini’s, with its close proximity to State Parliament, was a favourite haunt for politicians.

    But even former Prime Minister Gough Whitlam would pop in for a coffee regularly.

    One of the biggest con jobs in the contemporary history of journalism is currently afoot.
    Namely, the attempt to link “rising anti-semitism” to the “far right” in the US and Europe.
    The ABC – whose institutional hatred for J-ws is notorious – dutifully plays its role:

    Kristallnacht survivor Andy Factor warns of rising antisemitism on 80th anniversary.

    “I am very fearful,” Andy said this week.

    “I can see, almost, a replica of the time when Nazism came into power.”

    “I feel there is an upsurge in antisemitism, which has a terrible effect on me because I worry about my descendants.”

    Andy watched with horror as news rolled out of Pittsburgh in the US last month of a mass shooting in a synagogue that left 11 people dead.

    The suspected gunman, Robert Bowers, has been charged with hate crimes.

    A year earlier, white nationalists marched through Charlottesville in the US, carrying torches and chanting.

    More broadly, nationalist parties have risen to prominence in the US and across Europe, spurred by what former UN secretary-general Ban Ki-moon recently said was a “re-emergence of nationalism, xenophobia and isolationist [politics].”

    As recently as September, thousands of far-right protesters took the streets in the east German city of Chemnitz and clashed with counter-protestors after a German citizen was killed, allegedly by migrants from Syria and Iraq.

    In this current political climate, Andy said he feared the cultural majority would turn on the minorities.

    The truth: for decades, the entire Western left to a man and a woman has fantasised about the extermination of Israel and dogmatically hates J-ws.

  126. Nick

    Where is the anger in Melbourne at this latest atrocity.

    When Eurydice Dixon and Jill Meagher were tragically murdered, we had protests, the works. Hell, even Jill Meagher’s partner recently opinined and was given media coverage, stating that Tommy Robinson shouldn’t be. Let into the country.

    Yet we don’t even know the name of the man killed.

    My point is, what happened to those ladies was disgraceful. Shouldn’t similar outrage be expressed about a murdered man who was simply going about his business? Will the media give his widow air time to opine about Muslims?

    Bourke St attack the latest horror incident, as pattern of ‘isolated’ acts emerges
    PATRICK CARLYON, Herald Sun
    November 9, 2018 11:44pm
    Subscriber only

    THE social media footage is posted in minutes. A man wielding a knife. Two police officers fending him off. Two civilians are taking cover, one bravely trying to block the attacker with a shopping trolley. Then a shot. BANG.

    At the same time, Melburnians on the street gulp at another sight. Down a grey laneway is a white mound, a body under a sheet.

    The quiet crowd has gathered at Russell Place, a passing swell of mourners for an unexpected loss. They don’t know who’s lying there. But they do know that it isn’t right.

    The body lies outside the Target Centre on Bourke St at 5pm on a Friday, when trams should normally rattle by and pedestrians should normally bustle in their rush to start the weekend. Bourke St is empty, bar the police.

    But just as sinister is the timing. It is day two of the Gargasoulas trial. He has pleaded not guilty to six counts of murder, amid a myriad of other charges, and the court has watched footage of what once seemed like unknowable violence in Melbourne. It has heard the defendant, said to be in a drug-induced psychosis, wants to explain the events.

    Police spoke of the earliness of their investigation, alluding to no known terrorist links. An hour later, more facts emerge. The assailant is a Somali with known terrorist links.

    But the fact of the incident after Bourke St and Flinders St in December last year, raises enough questions in itself.

    Now, after Friday afternoon, there have been three unprovoked events in Melbourne’s city centre in less than two years. Are they isolated acts of madness? Or a pattern?

    An absence of understanding seems a long sentence — and a hefty price — for those who care about this wonderful city.

    From 2007

    Yesterday The Age reported warnings by an international Islamic scholar and leader of Sydney’s Somali community that young Somali men were being drawn in by supporters of terrorism in Somalia and might even be used for attacks in Australia. In a speech to the Melbourne Somali community last night, Dr Herse Hilole said some Somalis had returned to Somalia from Melbourne and Sydney to take part in jihad, and some had been killed. Other Somali leaders in Melbourne deny Australian Somalis are engaged in jihad here or abroad.

    In the face of conflicting claims it is important to maintain perspective. Evidence shows that terrorist-related activity in Australia has so far been “homegrown” and not shipped in from overseas. Furthermore, Somalis form a very small percentage of the Australian population. Nevertheless, vigilance is vital, and so is support for resettlement programs. Earlier this year one of the architects of Australia’s multiculturalism policy, Jerzy Zubrzycki, called on the Howard Government to spend more on migrant settlement programs, especially for black Africans. The Government was forgetting, he said, that it couldn’t just allow refugees such as the Africans into Australia and then abandon them.

    The signs so far are good and there is certainly no need for hysteria or panic with regard to the resettlement of migrants from Africa. But the key lies in support for resettlement programs that don’t just abandon the latest wave of migrants to sink or swim.

    “While it would be grossly offensive to modern standards for a state to discriminate against any of its own citizens on the grounds of race, a state is entitled to prevent the immigration of persons whose culture is such that they are unlikely readily to integrate into society, or at least to ensure that persons of that kind do not enter the country in such numbers that they will be likely to form a distinct and alien section of society…”

    However, the attempt is by the Demorats, not the Republicans as m0nty implied, so his record of wrongology remains intact.

    Pressure on government to reunite $17.5 billion lost super with rightful owners

    OK, call me a cynic. A nonbeliever, a doubter, a sceptic. I’ll own up to all of these descriptions, because, well, some things are just too unbelievable to, um, believe.

    In particular, $17.5 billion in so-called “lost” superannuation!
    How is this possible? I smell a rat.

    For a start, it’s not actually lost. Those billions of dollars are either sitting in superannuation accounts clocking up administration fees or they are earning interest for the government.

    So we know where the money is. What we don’t seem to know is who it belongs to.

    Pull the other leg!

    The only reason this money is sitting around providing morning tea for all the greedy super fund managers is because of their bad administration practices.

    In every situation, the super fund is to blame and at fault for not being able to identify who the money belongs to.

    Empty queue at the local supermarket for the check out chick of no particular religion.

    It says something, not sure what.

    I was in the checkout queue at Coles in Werribee this morning.
    The rank and file seem to blame a couple of different groups: one elderly lady of southern european extraction commented that we should only vote liberal because they aren’t bringing in the muslims. Another woman with a similar background suggested that Daniel Andrews was to blame because he wants ‘them’ here because they vote for him. Another younger woman said that she was happy that the terrorist had been killed. I suggested that it wasn’t fair that a policewoman had to be the instrument of that action, to which the younger women replied that ‘if we don’t kill them then they will surely kill us’.
    The troops are not happy.

    The troops are not happy.

    The Troops have every reason to be unhappy.
    Our media blathers on about some one grabbing some one (not that that has NEVER happened before) and ignores what is happening to social traditions.
    Bollards, cancelled celebrations, civic authorities curtailing events through economic coercion.
    And yet we get irrelevant nonsense Like:
    “it would be grossly offensive to modern standards for a state to discriminate against any of its own citizens on the grounds of race, ”
    and:
    “In the face of conflicting claims it is important to maintain perspective. Evidence shows that terrorist-related activity in Australia has so far been “homegrown” and not shipped in from overseas. Furthermore, Somalis form a very small percentage of the Australian population.”
    Do none of these effete intellectuals notice that from the *perspective* of we deplorables it matters not where the terrorism was grown nor does it matter a jot whether or not the perpetrators are a small or smaller or less small percentage of the Australian population.
    THEY ARE KILLING PEOPLE AND NOTHING IS BEING DONE TO STOP IT!

    Yesterday, the talking heads at Fox News Channel assured us that Tucker Carlson was having a pre-planned rostered day off. Today, fill-in host of Tucker Carlson Tonight, Brian Kilmeade, announced that Carlson “is having a well-earned vacation with his family” after his wife was terrorised inside their Washington DC home earlier the week by the Democratic Party’s Brown Shirts Antifa savages screaming insults through bullhorns.

    If Fox News doesn’t provide the necessary personal security for Carlson’s family and do whatever it takes to protect their rising star and keep him on air, they might as well be CNN. The savages went after him because they lost every argument Carlson engaged them in; they know he’s such a formidable enemy he must be silenced.

She is totally convinced we are racist because we are so opposed to islamic ideology. Her shock at Sisto…someone she knew…might just penetrate the delusions she has been clinging to. And because it is Sisto, there will definitely be mounds of flowers and teddy bears.

    Report on a finer time in history – I visited Houston Space Centre today. The weather was evil so the trolley ride around the site was out.
    Just reflecting on what was achieved by these people is sobering. The bravery, sacrifice and sheer brainpower to get those massive machines out into space made me wonder where it’s all gone. The corpulent, manbunned, entriggered, entitled, narcissistic, puerile, shallow, zombiefied mass of humanity that is today’s society pales by comparison.
    Were those brief decades the pinnacle of achievement, or is there more to come?

    Yes I have to believe there is.

    One consequence of the lone wolf events will be an unswerving acceleration of fashionable refugee dispersal areas out into rural victoria, so that every bankrupt regional shire can take the population burden off the ratepayers of melbourne.

    How many diversity clients can be dumped into a bankrupt shire of thirty thousand people?.

    Got friends in Nhill, and recently had a stopover, the Karen have been a success, but the 40 million dollars impact can also be seen as an indication of the resources required to make a success of putting 180 refugees into a town of two thousand. Volunteer work by the existing community not counted.

    Should the single employer hit hard times as grain prices go through the roof and poultry producers come under combined animal liberation and feed economic pressure [ how many ducks per square meter makes them happy enough ducks for animal lib?.] there will be a massive State and ratepayer funded bailout.

    https://www.sbs.com.au/news/karen-refugees-revitalise-victorian-country-town

    For fashionable refugee dispersal areas to be a success all problems must be crushed by money.

    A bankrupt shire near Nhill is proposing a State subsidised wind farm to power a State funded lithium battery farm to run a State funded diversity refugee lettuce farm.

    Crony businessmen and council unelected stalinists can see that some projects will become too valuable to decolonialisation theory to be allowed to fail, and will be State funded to the end of days.

    If half the 40 million impact on Nhill was State funding and half private and the credit multiplier of State funding we have a guestimate that putting 180 thousand into rural victoria anstead of 180 will take six months visa and permanent immigration from melbourne, then the Rural State will be locked into decolonialisation forever and the city will resume mass immigration as usual.

    And someone will have to find 20 million dollars times a thousand.

    20 billion dollar stimulus for rural victoria, funded by taxes on capital through the rates system and monetising the value of the farmland stolen by settler culture from indigineous culture and used to replace both.

    Comrade Maaaaates.

  199. John Constantine

    Luv-a-duck has roughly 40 Karen happily working for it.

    Good story, but claiming that it created 40 million dollars of value from nothing and using it as an emotional weapon to dump mass numbers of incels from the worlds poorest places from helicopters into bankrupt shires is Not a good Thing.

    40 jobs doesn’t justify claims that the population problems of melbourne will be fixed by sending a years worth of migration out into rural gulags.

    The terrorist who killed an elderly man, wounded two others with a knife and blew up a ute in the heart of Melbourne had his passport cancelled in 2015 after trying to travel to Syria but was not being actively monitored.

    Australian Federal Police national manager of counter-terrorism Ian McCartney today said Hassan Khalif Shire Ali, 30, was known to police for his radical views but had not been deemed to be a serious threat. Police say Shire Ali was the brother of a man accused of terrorism offences.

    He said police knew of family connections to radicalism but they now believed the broader threat was over after Shire Ali was fatally shot at close range by a policeman in Melbourne on Friday afternoon.

    The policeman had been on the job for just three months but was hailed by his superiors for his role in ending the attack.

    From the Oz. Couldn’t they let him go to Syria, THEN cancel his passport?
