    Ecove director Bassam Aflak today confirmed it may take “weeks” until a number of apartments are suitable to be lived in again due to ongoing work.

    “We understand there are a number of apartments which require remediation work to return them to their original condition,” he said in a statement.

    “We have been advised this may take a number of weeks and Icon will provide alternative accommodation options for those residents for the duration of the work.”

    CFMEU boss John Setka fronts court over Boxing Day row with wife

    Union boss John Setka has faced court over a Boxing Day row with his lawyer wife Emma Walters at his home.

    Mr Setka, the Victorian head of the powerful Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining and Energy Union, looks set to fight charges stemming from the incident.

    His lawyer, Tony Hargreaves, told the Melbourne Magistrates Court today he had held a conference with police but the parties were unable to come to a resolution.

    It means the case will return to court next month.

    Mr Setka was supported by two people during the short hearing, his first court appearance since being charged.

    Outside court he refused to answer questions about the incident.

    “I’d love to talk to you but I’ve been told I’m not allowed to talk about it,” he told a waiting media pack.

    Asked about his views on violence toward women, he remained silent.

    Police were called to the couple’s West Footscray home on Boxing Day after emergency services were alerted.

    It is understood that Mr Setka is currently on extended personal leave from the union.

    Trump trolls the EU yet again:

    We don’t exactly know when they did it, because they conveniently forgot to notify us,” an EU official complained to German public broadcaster Deutsche Welle.

    President Trump’s globalist predecessor Barack Obama awarded the EU’s representative in Washington that status of a nation-state ambassador — appearing to contradict the public position of British europhiles that the bloc is “just a trade club” — in September 2016.

    The promotion was seen as a huge coup by the Brussels bureaucracy, and the realisation that they have been unceremoniously demoted back to international organisation status has “not been well received”.

    “This is clearly not simply a protocol issue, but this is something that has a very obvious political motive,” a diplomat for one of the bloc’s member-state’s seethed.

    “For us, [Obama] made this decision once and it was a well-thought-through decision — and now [Trump] sort of put it down again with a pen stroke,” an EU official added despairingly.

    Gotta love that man’s style. 🙂

    Today, the leftist media is full of stories about how much Fraser Anning spent on travel while representing the mainstream community. Here’s a video of Andrew Wilkie (yes, I know) listing some, but certainly not all, of the more recent examples of how our money is spent.

    Lizzie,

    Metabolic disease is caused by the Standard Australian Diet (SAD) and metabolic disease can be cured by periodic or intermittent fasting and by changing to a Plant-based whole-food diet.

    In America 75% of the $2.8Trillion HeathCare budget goes to treating/managing these conditions. 👇

    METABOLIC DISEASES
    – Diabetes
    – High Blood Pressure
    – Heart Disease
    – Blood Fat Diseases
    – Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease
    – Kidney Disease
    – Polycystic Ovarian Disease
    – Cancer
    – Alzheimers Disease

    BigMedicine/BigPharma is a multi-Trillion Dollar industry and “Health” does not factor in to [their] business model. Of course BigFood delivers customers by adding an addictive poison to 80% of supermarket products – SUGAR. 👿

    Doctors and HeathCare, say rather SickCare, professionals will want to manage your husband’s condition with drugs and procedures; maybe, if he’s obese, some dietary advice, cut back fat, eat more grains, meaning refined carbohydrates like bread, pasta and cereals which incidentally, peak insulin more than sugar. 👿

    By the way, the Food Pyramid is the greatest cause of Metabolic disease and a Crime Against Humanity!

    You’re a good researcher. Research – Fasting and Intermittent Fasting, Plant-based Diet SOS (No Sugar/Starch, Oil, Salt), and everything you can from Dr Alan Goldhamer, Dr Jason Fung, Dr Robert Lustig and Dr Michael Klaper.

    This is your brain on leftism….

    Calling for the complete negation of the last US election result would result in no downsides at all, and definitely not effectively trigger a civil war in any way.

    Leftism: Bath salts for the soul.

    Meanwhile, the horrific policies that have continued to stagnate the industrial and agricultural heartland, treat non-white immigrants like Hitlerian Untermenschen, militarize the police in African American communities, flatline wages while corporate profits soar, ignore the nation’s crumbling infrastructure, regard women as no more than a uterus, and abandon millions of Americans to bankruptcy or worse if a major illness or accident happens, portends disaster. As does the anti-environmental, head-in-the-sand climate change positions that have overdosed on fossil fuels and ignored the necessity of solar and wind energy.

    Oh that explains it, a race pimp and grievance industry representative as well as whakerdemic.

    Fraser Anning got 19 notes and is generated more discussion and media can senators who got 190,000 votes. Remember this guy was just a ring in because he was second on a ticket and first got booted. Is past retirement age. He’s raking in 200000 k a year which he probably doesn’t even need and he doesn’t give a s***. I don’t know if he was planning for standing for election but if he does, the media and lefty hystericists are guaranteeing that he will be voted in this time.

    A couple of points of interest for me from the discussion on Socialism and Communism. The first was the erstwhile contributor who stated the fascist state has death camps the socialists / communists (I know they’re not the same thing by the way) do not. Where would that put places like Siberia under the old USSR and Kampuchea under Pol Pot?

    The next was the musings of a few regarding Socialism and unionism. Totalitarian leftist regime’s aren’t really big on trade unions. You see they give people a say and an opportunity to criticise the system. An historical example was the attempt by Polish farmers to form a Union just after Solidarity formed. The Polish Communist Government under instructions from Moscow would, under no circumstances, allow it. They knew Poland was the food bowl of Europe until leftist ideology got hold of it then all of a sudden they couldn’t feed Poland let alone anybody else! Some of the Polish farms weren’t even collectivised but they were still told what to plant, when to plant, when to harvest and who to sell to. See what was happenning there? It’s called regulation of food production. Now below is a link to a paper which tells a story about Germany’s pre-war efforts regarding the production of food. Now compare the two. The moment anyone mentions the regulation of food production I see the word socialism but maybe I’m just a bit old fashioned or maybe its because I just never gained that Arts degree…….well I never enrolled so maybe that’s why.

I didn’t read much about that particular episode but the little I did suggested to me that a perfectly normal guy had one too many and his hand fell on some woman’s thigh and now the f****** b**** is going to ensure that his career and name will be destroyed forever. You have to remember that a lot of young women hang around these players like f****** groupies and will spread their legs at the earliest opportunity in the hope of netting a high income individual and their 15 minutes claim to whoring fame. I know from Mr N that the amateur leagues wete full of such low rent tarts as well – and most players didn’t hesitate to take advantage of it – but the professional leagues have turned this all into an art form and a money spinner. It’s just another form of prostitution and extortion. It is one of many reasons why I just don’t watch professional football of any code anymore.

    Pedro belated congratulations on your working life and recent retirement. One thing I noticed with my parents’ retirement and that of their friends is that they gradually stopped learning to plan. So if I may be bold, make some plans for your retirement – things you want to do around the house or places you want to visit and people you want to see and just make plans. No need to kill yourself over it but it will give more structure and purpose and enjoyment. Also volunteering is one of the best gigs in the world. You often get a lot of freebies, make new friends and have absolutely no pressure. But anyway enjoy enjoy.

    Direct from the scumbags mouth…

    There is a tonne of stuff decrying capitalism as parasitical, his main distinctions were nationalism and “folk”, as well as recognizing it was better to allow individuals with business talent or skills to stay “boss” as long as they were subservient to the state.

    Socialism as the final concept of duty, the ethical duty of work, not just for oneself but also for one’s fellow man’s sake, and above all the principle: Common good before own good, a struggle against all parasitism and especially against easy and unearned income. And we were aware that in this fight we can rely on no one but our own people. We are convinced that socialism in the right sense will only be possible in nations and races that are Aryan, and there in the first place we hope for our own people and are convinced that socialism is inseparable from nationalism.
    “Why We Are Anti-Semites,” August 15, 1920

    ….
    The common good before the individual good. (Gemeinnutz geht vor Eigennutz)
    “The Nazi 25-point Programme,” Hitler’s speech on party’s program (February 24, 1920)

    …..
    At the founding of this Movement we formed the decision that we would give expression to this idea of ours of the identity of the two conceptions: despite all warnings, on the basis of what we had come to believe, on the basis of the sincerity of our will, we christened it “National Socialist.’ We said to ourselves that to be ‘national’ means above everything to act with a boundless and all-embracing love for the people and, if necessary, even to die for it. And similarly to be ‘social’ means so to build up the state and the community of the people that every individual acts in the interest of the community of the people and must be to such an extent convinced of the goodness, of the honorable straightforwardness of this community of the people as to be ready to die for it.
    Munich – Speech of April 12, 1922

    ….
    National Socialism derives from each of the two camps the pure idea that characterizes it, national resolution from bourgeois tradition; vital, creative socialism from the teaching of Marxism.
    Interview by Hanns Johst in Frankforter Volksblatt, Jan. 27, 1934

    ….
    In our movement the two extremes come together: the Communists from the Left and the officers and students from the Right. These two have always been the most active elements, and it was the greatest crime that they used to oppose each other in street fights… Our party has already succeeded in uniting these two utter extremes within the ranks of our storm troops. They will form the core of the great German liberation movement, in which all without distinction will stand together when the day comes to say: ‘The Nation arises, the storm is breaking!’
    As quoted in Der Fuehrer: Hitler’s Rise to Power

    …..
    To put it quite clearly: we have an economic programme. Point No. 13 in that programme demands the nationalisation of all public companies, in other words socialisation, or what is known here as socialism. … the basic principle of my Party’s economic programme should be made perfectly clear and that is the principle of authority… the good of the community takes priority over that of the individual. But the State should retain control; every owner should feel himself to be an agent of the State; it is his duty not to misuse his possessions to the detriment of the State or the interests of his fellow countrymen. That is the overriding point. The Third Reich will always retain the right to control property owners. If you say that the bourgeoisie is tearing its hair over the question of private property, that does not affect me in the least. Does the bourgeoisie expect some consideration from me?… Today’s bourgeoisie is rotten to the core; it has no ideals any more; all it wants to do is earn money and so it does me what damage it can. The bourgeois press does me damage too and would like to consign me and my movement to the devil.
    Hitler’s interview with Richard Breiting, 1931


    The main plank in the National Socialist program is to abolish the liberalistic concept of the individual and the Marxist concept of humanity and to substitute therefore the folk community, rooted in the soil and bound together by the bond of its common blood.
    On National Socialism and World Relations, speech delivered by Hitler in the German Reichstag, (January 30, 1937


    We want to build up a new state! That is why the others hate us so much today…. They are, after all, plutocracies in which a tiny clique of capitalists dominate the masses, and this, naturally, in close cooperation with international J***** and Freemasons.

    The quick enactment of a law of the state that sanctions an eight-hour workday for all workers;
    A minimum wage;
    The participation of workers’ representatives in the functions of industry commissions;
    To show the same confidence in the labor unions (that prove to be technically and morally worthy) as is given to industry executives or public servants;
    Reorganization of the railways and the transport sector;
    Revision of the draft law on invalidity insurance;
    Reduction of the retirement age from 65 to 55.
    ..
    A strong progressive tax on capital (envisaging a “partial expropriation” of concentrated wealth);
    The seizure of all the possessions of the religious congregations and the abolition of all the bishoprics, which constitute an enormous liability on the Nation and on the privileges of the poor;
    Revision of all contracts for military provisions;
    The revision of all military contracts and the seizure of 85 percent of the profits therein.

    The Morrison government is formally considering offering Saudi woman Rahaf Mohammed Alqunun asylum after the United Nations declared she was a refugee.

    A spokesman for the Department of Home Affairs said it would consider the referral from the United Nations Commissioner for Refugees.

    “The UNHCR has referred Ms Rahaf Mohammed Alqunun to Australia for consideration for refugee resettlement,” the spokesman said

    “The Department of Home Affairs will consider this referral in the usual way, as it does with all UNHCR referrals.

    “The government will be making no further comment on this matter.”

  93. John Constantine

    They should mike khawaja up every game, so the public get a handle on his attitudes and thinking.

    Saw the interview with Harris on his debut, where Harris was trying to seriously concentrate and answer questions and khawaja was flicking small ice cubes at him from behind to be a little annoying.Got one down the back of his shirt and all.

    Interesting to see khawaja outright lie with a broad smile to the female journalist afterwards and get away with it.

    There are photos around of how he set up a young boy spin bowler, stalked him and positioned himself next to him during the playing of the national anthem and what he did to make the new team member squirm in humiliation.

    Putting a teenager into a team like that, when the kid is fragile is risky.

    If Australia takes her in, I’m waiting for the first protests along the lines of “This woman is apostate, and must die. It is the duty of all true believers to carry out the sentence, and it is an insult to all Muslims that Australia offers her sanctuary, instead of sending her home to face her fate.”

  99. None

    I think I did point out in the old thread what the best option was resettling her in Canada. One of the reasons being it removes her from being the political toy o the left here and re incentivising the illegals recalling that so many illegals claimed to be Christians or gay or whatever during the Gillard years. The other reason is that Canada has got a very strong Muslim feminist movement that actively campaigned against the introduction of Sharia law in certain provinces. That’s right the fukwit left wanted to oppress Muslim women and they told them to f*** off. Such women groups may be ideal for supporting this young woman even though she claims to be an apostate and removing some heat. Either way she definitely should not come to Australia especially after we denied asylum to a Muslim woman he was actually jailed for years and was on death row. Also remember that Dutton is not in charge of Immigration and that our fuckwit Immigration Minister will probably fuck it up anyway.

    And finally let me stated again which Minister is on record saying that we will definitely consider her claim. Remember the media has got form in making stuff up.

    They were very coy about the exact charges except to say that he had been told by Plod to stay away from the family home.
    Huh?
    Since when can Plod tell people to stay away from their house? Unless, of course, there is an AVO which his lawyers have had a suppression order on.
    We also hear that there was a last minute meeting with Plod this morning to negotiate charges.

Likewise they won’t march in the street is this woman or the Pakistani woman came to Australia. There may be some attempts on them but only by the stupid.

    Thankfully, Pucovski has overcome that illness, returning to Shield cricket at the start of December with an impressive second-innings half-century against WA. That was the last professional match he played, with the Shield going into its midseason sojourn for the Big Bash League. In the meantime, foxsports.com.au understands he has been courted by the Melbourne Stars on multiple occasions to join their squad. On each occasion, including as recently as last week, he politely declined, citing a singular focus against the red (and pink) ball as his primary objective.

    Zulu there used to be an academic here – I think he was related to the prime minister of the Maldives – and I think he wrote a book about apostasy in Islam sort of arguing that it was wrong to apply the death penalty and from what I remember he was threatened with death himself. Can’t remember what happened to him. Anyway you will find Muslims who say no you should not execute apostate but I don’t think there is any wiggle room in their jurisprudence. All schools of Islam have death is the penalty for apostasy. I say it again freedom of religion is the most fundamental freedoms Aries and that should include freedom to proselytise, freedom to convert and freedom to apostasize.

    In their earlier days, the Nazis had been considerably influenced by the Italian idea of the corporative state, in which business organizations particularly would have considerable independence in the regulation of their own affairs. But this theory was abandoned. As Ermarth describes it:

    Instead of creating corporative organizations with wide powers of self-rule and self-administration along the lines of the Standestaat philosophy, the National Socialists—in accordance with their fundamental principle of leadership—concentrated the power to formulate economic policies and to enforce them through a bureaucratic mechanism into the hands of the central political authorities: the leader and chancellor with his cabinet.

    His rhetoric paying lip service to socialism was full of lies, income taxes were much lower than that in Britain at the time,
    Poor leftist hyena thinks confiscated wealth from persecuted peoples and conquered countries is a “gotcha”
    One Reich strategy, then, was to shift responsibility for funding the Nazi war machine to the citizens of conquered lands—while continuing to spare the majority of its own populace any increased tax burden. Repeatedly over the course of the spring and summer of 1939, civil servants tried to raise tax rates, only to find themselves undercut by the Nazi leadership, which intervened to protect lower- and middle-income Germans. This procedural give-and-take is evident in the work of the Ministerial Council for the Defense of the Reich, which was formed on August 30, 1939, to draw up a blueprint for wartime taxation. Five days later it published a draft of the Wartime Economy Ordinance (Kriegswirtschaftsordnung, or KWVO). Paragraph 22 of the ordinance imposed an additional wartime tax of 50 percent on all wages, but it also promptly excluded all but the wealthiest Germans, those with annual incomes of more than 2,400 reichsmarks. In practice that exempted 70 percent of the German population. An additional 26 percent—those earning between 2,400 and 6,000 marks, incurred only minor additional charges. In the end only 4 percent of the population paid the 50 percent surcharge.

    So it appears that, if you were German, the highest tax rate was 50% of wages and that was only applied to the top 4% of the income distribution. On the other hand, if you were Je****h or a citizen of a country conquered by the Nazis, your de facto tax rate could be 100%, because the Nazis could confiscate all your property if they so desired.
    Reich “flight tax” rates, levied on people leaving the country..
    January 1934: 20%
    August 1934: 65%
    October 1936: 81%
    June 1938: 90%
    September 1939: 96%

    If everyone here dropped in to complain about their hangovers, Tom would find it hard to post his toons. It would be like trying to merge on the M4 in peak hour.

    In their earlier days, the Nazis had been considerably influenced by the Italian idea of the corporative state, in which business organizations particularly would have considerable independence in the regulation of their own affairs. But this theory was abandoned. As Ermarth describes it:

    Instead of creating corporative organizations with wide powers of self-rule and self-administration along the lines of the Standestaat philosophy, the National Socialists—in accordance with their fundamental principle of leadership—concentrated the power to formulate economic policies and to enforce them through a bureaucratic mechanism into the hands of the central political authorities: the leader and chancellor with his cabinet.

  164. thefrolickingmole

    His rhetoric paying lip service to socialism was full of lies, income taxes were much lower than that in Britain at the time,
    Poor leftist hyena thinks confiscated wealth from persecuted peoples and conquered countries is a “gotcha”
    One Reich strategy, then, was to shift responsibility for funding the Nazi war machine to the citizens of conquered lands—while continuing to spare the majority of its own populace any increased tax burden. Repeatedly over the course of the spring and summer of 1939, civil servants tried to raise tax rates, only to find themselves undercut by the Nazi leadership, which intervened to protect lower- and middle-income Germans. This procedural give-and-take is evident in the work of the Ministerial Council for the Defense of the Reich, which was formed on August 30, 1939, to draw up a blueprint for wartime taxation. Five days later it published a draft of the Wartime Economy Ordinance (Kriegswirtschaftsordnung, or KWVO). Paragraph 22 of the ordinance imposed an additional wartime tax of 50 percent on all wages, but it also promptly excluded all but the wealthiest Germans, those with annual incomes of more than 2,400 reichsmarks. In practice that exempted 70 percent of the German population. An additional 26 percent—those earning between 2,400 and 6,000 marks, incurred only minor additional charges. In the end only 4 percent of the population paid the 50 percent surcharge.

    So it appears that, if you were German, the highest tax rate was 50% of wages and that was only applied to the top 4% of the income distribution. On the other hand, if you were %**** or a citizen of a country conquered by the Nazis, your de facto tax rate could be 100%, because the Nazis could confiscate all your property if they so desired.
    Reich “flight tax” rates, levied on people leaving the country..
    January 1934: 20%
    August 1934: 65%
    October 1936: 81%
    June 1938: 90%
    September 1939: 96%

    Before the Nazis rose to power in January 1933, ***** owned 100,000 businesses in Germany, including stores, factories, publishing houses, newspapers, and private professional practices.

    Why is monty so full of stupid, stuff which if he googled for 5 minutes would dispel his carapace of wrongology?

    Big business bent the knee because they were simultaneously able to gobble up ex dead sea pedestrian companies & competitors for a song, and the knowledge the state could wreck you and remove you in a week.

    In 1933, Junkers was forced to give a majority stake in both his Junkers Aircraft Factory and Junkers Motor Company away to the Nazi government.

    They went on to legally exclude him from Dessau, forcing him out of the company he had built from nothing and the city which had been his home for most of his adult life.

    Batting partnerships set up test matches.

    When a top order batsman is not only too fat and lazy to run and chase in the field, but won’t dive because there is nothing in it for him, it is bad enough.

    When he refuses to bat in partnerships, and opposition captains recognise this and give him fields offering get off strike singles so they can work over the other batsman, that is a national embarrassment.

    Plenty of blokes would bleed red blood to play for their country, but cricket Australia is setting up a man that hates the place to be national captain.

    Blair Cottrell
    In October 2015, Blair Cottrell replaced Burgess as chairman of the United Patriots Front. Cottrell has stirred controversy over his criminal convictions (which include arson, stalking, making threats to kill, inciting contempt against Muslims and breaching intervention orders), and for several of his public statements, including a desire to see a portrait of Adolf Hitler hung in Australian classrooms and for copies of Mein Kampf to be “issued annually” to students. Cottrell has denied supporting Nazism.[10][4]

    In 2012, Cottrell served four months in Port Phillip Prison after being convicted of stalking his ex-girlfriend and her new partner, and of arson after attempting to burn down the man’s house. In December 2013 he was fined $1,000 and sentenced to seven days in jail by a County Court judge for aggravated burglary, property damage, arson, testosterone trafficking, possessing a controlled weapon and breaching court orders.[11][12]

    He’s just a misunderstood person.
