    My comment on Fascism from the earlier thread:

    The origins of Fascism were certainly right wing.

    It arose out of the ‘squadristi’ , groups of disgruntled vets from WW1 and Italy’s colonial wars who were employed in the early 1920s by business and landowners to beat up – and kill – peasants and workers fired up by what they saw as the success of Bolshevist Russia. The squadristi had the tacit support of centrist Italian government if the day.

    Mussolini saw the squadristi as a useful power base, but when in government he purged or bought off their leaders and introduced a sort of corporate nationalist state where economic and social relations were closely controlled by the government but that differed significantly from classic socialism in that property rights were retained and the means of production remained for the most part in private hands – so far as I am aware, there were no collective farms in Fascist Italy.

    Whether this clumsy and and only semi-coherent system actually worked – or whether anyone actually believed in it – are matters for debate, but the ‘squadristi’ aspect of Fascism is probably burned into the left folk-memory.

    On area where classical Fascism and the Australian left would be in complete agreement is cultural policy. the Labor view that Arts are part of our national identity and need to be regulated and subsidised to ensure we ‘tell our own stories’ is classic corporatist ‘cultural autarchy’.

    The thing I dont get over the Watson case is if his facts are incorrect then demonstrate it.

    Either that or apply the same reasoning to things like basketball players/sprinters etc.

    For the record I think most of the difference resides in culture and education and there are vast numbers of people of other races smarter than myself.

    Rugby League players are known for many things.
    Thinking about how something they do will look to others is not one of those things.
    Or indeed, thinking of any form.

    Being unable to conceptualise a scandal, they simply live for the moment. Tights stuffed in your mouth, or self-administering a colonoscopy with chook feathers, well… those & other things make no difference to a proper bro-job.

    Say what you like about ’em, but Rugby League players aren’t show ponies. To them a bro-job is done for the benefit of those who’re invited to play, not for the later titillation of others.

    ABC outraged Don Dale inmates were deprived of firearms during riot:

    Don Dale CCTV shows police aiming assault weapons at unarmed detainees during riot.

    Leaked Don Dale CCTV footage obtained exclusively by the ABC shows the dramatic moments heavily armed police aimed their guns at surrendering youth detainees and apprehended unarmed children during a riot.

    What were these “unarmed” poppets up to?

    Detainees can … be seen unlocking cells and arming themselves with star pickets and broken table legs.

    After the police arrive, detainees using angle grinders to breach the exterior perimeter fence line are tear-gassed to force a retreat.

    A The Knife Went In award to the ABC for this hilarious culpability-dodge:

    During the riot, the centre’s school burned down and detainees were filmed throwing rocks and objects over the fence line.

    Gotcha!

    At a media conference held on November 7, police declined to say what weapons they had used to regain control of the centre.

    However, the leaked footage makes clear they used laser scope assault weapons, and their BearCat armoured vehicle.

    Laser scope assault weapons!
    I mean, really; how dare they use weapons against “children” … with star pickets, table legs, angle grinders and a propensity to burn down buildings.

    Music festival drug deaths: What pills do to teenage bodies
    Jack Houghton, The Daily Telegraph
    January 14, 2019 10:51am
    Subscriber only

    Pill-popping party ravers are cooking their bodies like eggs and risk a toxic shutdown of their internal organs, a leading NSW toxicologist warned in the wake of the latest dance tragedy.

    The state’s chief toxicologist has revealed that festival revellers are cooking themselves to death when they overdose on ecstasy as internal temperatures rocket above 40C in a matter of minutes.

    NSW Poisons Information Centre toxicologist Professor Andrew Dawson said understanding what was actually killing festival goers would help friends spot the warning signs.

    Man dies after being pulled from Kiama Blowhole 2GB
    9 mins ago

    A 33-year-old man has died after he was pulled unconscious from Kiama Blowhole on the state’s south coast.

    NSW Ambulance paramedics received reports at about 12.25pm of two people “stuck in the blowhole” at Kiama.

    An emergency helicopter was called to the scene where up to three people ran into trouble while swimming.

    It’s reported the man was a tourist who came into trouble with three friends while swimming in the blowhole.

    Pill testing not the answer
    Recent deaths of festival goers consuming pills of unknown ingredients have led to calls for pill testing. There are three issues that should be considered as a counter to these calls.

    First, there are now hundreds of synthetic cannabinoids, benzodiazepines, amphetamine types and opiates in circulation worldwide.
    It is not possible for any testing facility to identify all of these and in a time frame for the owner of the substance to be able to make an informed decision as to whether he or she should take the pill.

    Second, in order not to destroy the pill, the tester would need to scrape off a small amount.
    Unlike pharmaceutical tablets, the ingredients in a pill are unlikely to be homogeneously mixed. In other words, merely taking a scraping may well miss the impurity buried elsewhere within the tablet.

    Third, one of the deadliest substances circulating in 2018 was carfentanil, a highly potent synthetic opiate 10,000 times more potent than morphine.
    Carfentanil has been found mixed with heroin and cocaine resulting in deaths in Britain. The drug is fatal in microgram amounts. It is not yet known what substance/s were the actual cause of recent deaths and near fatalities. But testing wouldn’t identify microgram amounts of substances such as carfentanil.

    Well if he’s been arrested, I’d say the law has been changed.

    From personal experience, Struth, I’d seriously suggest you explore options like osteopathy and good muscle/soft tissue therapists before any surgery, and even any cortisone injections. I was facing the same prospects, but have been fine with initial osteo/soft tissue treatment and a little regular maintenance for some seven years now. My occupation involves some serious shoulder/upper arm work (equine podiotherapy and hoof trimming, equine massage and body therapy), so I need my shoulders in particular in good working order.

    Hang-ups on colonisation won’t fix indigenous suicides, academic saysAndrew BurrellFollow @AndrewBurrell7

    12:00AM January 14, 2019
    21 Comments

    Australia’s indigenous suicide crisis won’t be fixed by blaming colonisation, says Aboriginal academic Anthony Dillon, who is calling for a greater focus on the effects of high unemployment, violence and child sexual abuse in many communities.

    Dr Dillon’s comments yesterday came after The Weekend Australian reported that four Aboriginal girls had taken their own lives within a week, amid concerns indigenous children will account for half of child suicides.

    About 5 per cent of Australians aged up to 17 are Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, but 40 per cent of the children who took their own lives over the past year were indigenous, according to federal indigenous critical response team head Gerry Georgatos..

    The most recent tragedy was last week in Perth’s south, where an indigenous girl, 15, is believed to have taken her own life. Her death came after another 15-year-old indigenous girl from Western Australia died in Townsville Hospital on January 3.

    A 12-year-old indigenous girl in the Pilbara town of South Hedland died by suicide last Sunday; her father had taken his own life in 2012. And last Monday, a 14-year-old girl in the Kimberley Aboriginal community of Warmun took her own life.

    Indigenous academic Pat Dudgeon, from the University of Western Australia, has blamed the crisis on colonisation which, she says, plays “a key role in negatively affecting the general mental health and wellbeing of indigenous people”.

    But Dr Dillon, from the Institute for Positive Psychology and Education at the Australian Catholic University, deemed it more complicated. “It’s far too easy to just blame colonisation or to say the government aren’t doing enough,” he said, adding that the key challenge was stopping people thinking about suicide in the first place.

    “If you talk about ending the violence and the child sexual abuse, which is a known link to suicide, you’re branded a sellout if you’re Aboriginal,” he said.

    “If you’re non-Aboriginal you’re called a racist. We’ve got to have these tough conversations for things to get better.”

    That about sums up the situation: some aboriginal academic/activist says it’s white fellow fault while enjoying every aspect of white society; some other, imo, reasonable aboriginal academic says its systemic issues within the aboriginal society and states the obvious that by saying that he will be ostracised and if a white fellow says it he’ll be a racist.

    BHP catches another load from the golden eagle.

    “Thanks to advanced proprietary seismic imaging and reservoir characteristics analysis, BP has now identified an additional 1 billion barrels of oil in place at its Thunder Horse field, and an additional 400 million barrels of oil in place at the Atlantis field, the UK supermajor said this week.

    BP’s proprietary algorithms to enhance seismic imaging allow seismic data that would have previously taken a year to analyze to be processed in only a few weeks, the company says.

    While it has identified more than a billion barrels of oil at its oil fields, BP also approved the expansion of the Atlantis field which it operates, with the US$1.3-billion Atlantis Phase 3 development as part of its strategy to grow advantaged oil production through its existing production facilities in the Gulf.

    Atlantis field co-owner BHP, which holds 44 percent, is expected to make a final investment decision on Atlantis Phase 3 in early 2019. ”

    That’s only because you, as a deceitful, denier have not supported the construction of mega solar farms! Imagine! A Kidmanesque sized solar farm!

    The Silly has its knickers in a twist about solar panels.

    Waste crisis looms as thousands of solar panels reach end of life (13 Jan)

    Australia’s enthusiastic embrace of rooftop solar has brought clear environmental and economic benefits, but critics say governments have dragged their feet in addressing the looming waste crisis.

    As of December more than 2 million Australian households had rooftop solar installed. The uptake continues to grow due to the technology’s falling cost and rising electricity bills.

    The nation’s environment ministers in April last year agreed to fast-track the development of new product stewardship schemes for photovoltaic solar panels and associated batteries. Such schemes make producers and retailers take responsibility for an item across its life cycle.

    I love this crazy stuff. Why are electricity prices rising. Because subsidies. Why are solar panels being put on roofs? Because of high electricity prices and subsidies. What will happen when governments make retailers pay to take the old panels down? Higher electricity prices…

    Round and round the clown show we go.

    Pat Dudgeon’s entire career, all her board appointments and committee work and advisory positions, all her income and status would seem to depend on Aboriginals staying on the plantation. This is why she could promote this colonisation myth because of course you can’t “treat” that bit can use it as a permanent bludgeon to maintain your income stream. Most of us have got ancestors from home lands which were colonized or invaded or whatever of some sort so how come we don’t suffer from colonisation? Also how does this sit with the Mabo finding that Australia was settled not invaded and if it was invaded then there is no native title?
    A couple of her bios say she’s from the Bardi people in the Kimberley. Clever wording as that doesn’t necessarily mean she was born and raised in these communities much less in any community that was or is in crisis.
    Dudgeon is a member of what I call the Aboriginal industry which has done more harm to aboriginals in crisis than anything else because it persistently infantilizes Aboriginals in crisis eat opposes any real or effective intervention and/ or deflect attention from any crisis by making every issue something about their pet Theory.

    Will devastate Turkey economically if they hit Kurds,” Trump tweeted, while pushing for the creation of a 20-mile ‘safe zone’. He then added: “Likewise, do not want the Kurds to provoke Turkey.”

    “Russia, Iran and Syria have been the biggest beneficiaries of the long term US policy of destroying ISIS in Syria – natural enemies. We also benefit but it is now time to bring our troops back home. Stop the ENDLESS WARS!”

    Reduced to praising John Howard, and getting it completely wrong at the same time.

    John Howard praised by PM after reportedly intervening in domestic violence incident
    Scott Morrison says Howard’s intervention ‘shows the character of the bloke’ as Kevin Rudd also praises former PM

    Scott Morrison has lauded the former prime minister John Howard for intervening in a domestic violence incident.

    Howard, 79, who was prime minister between 1996 and 2007, was on his daily walk near his Sydney home on Wednesday when he saw a couple fighting, News Corp reported. After breaking up the row, Howard waited with the woman until police arrived.

    “How good is John Howard,” Morrison told reporters in the Northern Territory. “He’s obviously been a mentor to me and others, particularly on our side of politics. It shows the character of the bloke.”

    Morrison used the incident to point out Australians’ responsibility to help stop domestic violence.

    “John Howard gave us a reminder that we’ve all got a responsibility when it comes to this,” he said. “If you see this stuff going on, call it out like John did.”

    The former Labor prime minister Kevin Rudd, who defeated Howard at the 2007 election, also publicly congratulated his former opponent.

    “Well done John Howard. Any violence against women is unacceptable,” Rudd tweeted.

    As a result of the incident, a 44-year-old woman was charged with breaching an apprehended domestic violence order and granted conditional bail to appear at Manly local court on Tuesday.

    The man, 47, was taken to hospital as a mental health precaution.

    It appears HoWARd was protecting the chap???

    On arrival back to Australia earlier today I noticed at Brisbane airport that the shuttle bus running between international and domestic terminals now sports a sign saying “100% electric!”.
    The distance between the terminals is perhaps 5 or so kilometres and the bus runs pretty much non-stop.
    I’m no engineer, but maybe one of the more educated people here could help me with the following queries:
    1) Given the prices of fully electric cars, how much would a battery-powered bus cost?
    2) What could be the realistic range? The whole thing, including batteries, must be rather heavy…
    3) How would the operator fit in recharge times? Surely the bus could never run all day on one charge.
    I have no doubt whatsoever that this is just another expensive virtue signal from our betters in government, but from the relatively little I know about the current state of electric vehicles, I would not have thought even the current Labor government could be quite that stupid.

    Of course, her real ‘contribution’ is stoking the grievance industry which has so richly rewarded her. Not a single abused child will have a chance of getting out of the hellholes because of her. She is just making a great lifestyle and lots of ego stroking and kudos and prestigious appointments out of their pain.

    How about spending a year living in Wadeye, where your expensive hairstyle and designer glasses would soon melt, while you worried about whether your house would be vandalised or invaded each night?

    It’s reported the man was a tourist who came into trouble with three friends while swimming in the blowhole.

    What did he think the warning signs and safety barriers were for? Decoration?

    I remember first visiting the Kiama Blowhole as a child, long before there were any warning signs or barriers. They were not needed because anyone with reasoning power greater than an earthworm realised that swimming in the Blowhole was stupid and potentially suicidal. Growing up, I do not remember any reports of people coming to grief there, see above.

    Perhaps one of the side effects of kids growing up on special effects movies is that they have NFI about real danger.

    In fact if these women ate properly it would add point one of a point to GDP and there’d be less inclination for some blokes to turn gay.

    At the mall in Queanbeyan today, I saw three young women who were undoubtedly anorexic. They were so painfully thin, I was amazed that they could even walk. Clad in close fitting clothes, their legs and arms were wasted like concentration camp victims, their faces were hollow, it was watching the walking dead. And, most of them will die, quite soon.

    A friend at work had a daughter with anorexia, and it was devastating for all of the family. She almost starved to death in her teens. They managed to pull her back from the brink, just.

    I suppose that the trans crowd would say that it is not a mental illness, just them being who they want to be.

    A really good fucking question. Trump my not be the God we thought he was, particularly pertaining to the DOJ.

    Agree with the WSJ editorial.

    Will attorney general nominee William Barr promise not to fire special counsel Robert Mueller? If he does, President Trump should withdraw the nomination.

    Republicans as well as Democrats have suggested such an agreement may be in the offing. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham met Mr. Barr last week on Capitol Hill, then tried to placate the press. “I can assure you he has a very high opinion of Mr. Mueller,” the South Carolina Republican said, “and he is committed to letting Mr. Mueller finish his job.”

    Mr. Graham added that the nominee and the special counsel became “best friends” in the early 1990s, when Mr. Barr was attorney general under President George H.W. Bush and Mr. Mueller headed the Justice’s Department’s criminal division. Their wives were in the same Bible study group, and Mr. Mueller attended the weddings of two of Mr. Barr’s three daughters.

    How is it supposed to be reassuring that Mr. Trump has nominated Mr. Mueller’s best friend to oversee him and his investigation?

    But imagine this. Barr goes to the Senate hearing and promises not to fire the dickhead. Trump fires him before he’s even started. Imagine the nuclear explosion?

    Moreover

    Keep in mind that for a special prosecutor to be constitutional at all, the president has to be able to fire him. If Mr. Barr vowed not to fire Mr. Mueller, he’d be undercutting Mr. Trump from day one.

    Eggsactly. Sure to be interesting.

    And look who’s asking

    Such was the message of Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a Democratic Judiciary member. In a piece for the online magazine Slate in March, Mr. Blumenthal urged top Justice Department officials to provide, a la Richardson, “a written and public commitment of noninterference in the special counsel’s investigation.”

    In his ecstasy! then off, off forth on swing,

    What is it with popular culture in the last 20 years or so whereby seeing/hearing/smelling something you don’t like causes you to throw up? It infested television and movies as well, plus we had to endure the sounds of retching, as though it made things more authentic.

    In my long and varied life, I have seen and heard and heard about a fair bit of spewing. It invariably involved either a stomach bug or alcohol (cf the Great Southern Comfort Regurgitation of 1973.) But, never once has it involved finding a caterpillar or even a mouse in the salad greens.

    A Perth woman who almost vomited when she spotted a dead rodent in a packaged supermarket salad has received a heartfelt apology.

    She noticed the rodent in the supermarket – it was not like she was about to serve it. But, because she ‘almot vomited’ this is hugely traumatic and apparently newsworthy.

    In an age where people ‘feel physically sick’ at the mere thought of Donald Trump, I must say that ‘almost’ vomiting is at the lower end of the scale.

    Next time, she should stick two fingers down her throat and sue.

    Free speech they want but also the re introduction of tariffs.

    In a country like the USA there is ample scope for using tariffs as an international pushy-shovey tool to get what you want. The USA is a very large, economically diverse and adaptable nation.

    In contrast, Australia is good at a few things and imports everything else. We are not in a position to start too much of a stoush. Our GST in effect already imposes a 10% tariff (but shhhh you aren’t supposed to call it that, because tariff bad m’kay?) and we can’t push our luck a whole lot more. Imagine attempting to build cars inside Australia and drive our own cars again. Holy crap, the unions would have a field day. My old Toyota would fetch top dollar at auction.

    Invitation to the Yellow Vest protest in Canberra Feb 12th 1.30 pm outside Parliament House

    The Climate Realists of Canberra are inviting those who

    • Want Australia to withdraw from the Paris “climate” Agreement
    • Consider the belief CO2 controls the Climate is dubious or unfounded
    • Want Australia to be able to produce power at the cheapest possible price
    • Want the use of all technologies including Coal and Nuclear power to be in the mix of options and
    • Want Australia to leave the United Nations (so we are not controlled by non Australian interests).

    To join a Rally outside Parliament House on Feb 12th at 1.30 pm wearing a yellow vest

    There will be
    • An hour of different speakers (approx 3 minutes each) of either serious or humorous content
    • A prize for the most humorous placard
    • A prize for the most humorous speech
    • A symbolic photo of all yellow vest wearers taken together with Parliament house in the background
    • Drinks and nibbles with Senator Fraser Anning at 6 pm in Parliament House?

    If you can flick this email to your friends and contacts, it will be most appreciated.

    If you want to give a speech please email [email protected]

    You can speak on either
    • The Climate Science fraud
    • The economic impacts of following Man Made Global warming ideas or being in the UN
    • The social impacts of following Man Made Global warming ideas or being in the UN
    • Or any other related subject with the five points at the top of this email
