    I tell you what, there will be some Indo fisherman smashing the Arak tonight.
    Looks like Open Borders is back on the menu boys!

  2. Dr Faustus

    The Morrison Government is now completely done.

    Morison should allow the People Smugglers’ Assistance Bill to pass through the Senate without stupid resistance – and then take the drive to Yarralumla to advise the GG to dissolve parliament.

    By my quick count, if the Coalition sees any benefit in a long campaign, the process could be stretched out to allow for the election to be held on 27 April. Not much less than the ‘sometime in May’ date bandied around.

    This approach at least leaves Shorten with the border security issue down the front of his trousers and avoids the shouty nonsense of the remaining few parliamentary sitting days. It’s about the best outcome the hopeless fucks can expect.

  3. Snoopy

    But as we converse the big men in Indo are telling their marks that all their wishes will come true if only they stump up ten large for a one way ticket to Ashmore Reef.

    Get in quick! It will be $15k after the election.

    He should just call a double dissolution. It’s over.

    The PM cannot “call” a double dissolution.
    Nobody can “call” a double dissolution.

    It happens automatically as a result of certain events happening in Parliament.
    Yes, a PM can engineer those events to occur, but the process takes three + months.
    The next election has to be called by April 4 – less than three months away.

    Current unplanned outages – ACT
    7pm update: The severe wind storm that swept through Canberra this afternoon caused widespread outages across Canberra. As at 7pm, there are 280 customers without power. We are currently reviewing restoration time frames and prioritising getting the remaining customers back online. Our crews are working as quickly and safely as possible and at this stage, are hoping to have everyone back online by 9pm.

    Dancers – Bob Fosse and Tommy Rall

    Robert Louis Fosse (June 23, 1927 – September 23, 1987) was an American dancer, musical theatre choreographer, director and film director.[2]

    He won eight Tony Awards for choreography, more than anyone else, as well as one for direction. He was nominated for four Academy Awards, winning for his direction of Cabaret.

    Thomas Edward “Tommy” Rall (born December 27, 1929 in Kansas City, Missouri) is an American ballet dancer, tap dancer and acrobatic dancer who was a prominent featured player in 1950s musical comedies. He later became a successful operatic tenor in the 1960s, making appearances with the Opera Company of Boston, the New York City Opera, and the American National Opera Company.

    The PM cannot “call” a double dissolution. Nobody can “call” a double dissolution. It happens automatically as a result of certain events happening in Parliament.

    The Government has lost a vote in the HoR on a substantive policy issue. Any GG would accept advice from the PM that the vote could be considered a vote of no confidence and grant a double dissolution.

    Pretty much exactly what Gough did in 1974, except that Labor lost that vote in the Senate not the Reps.

    Cue marching lines of feminists outside the Saudi Embassy tomorrow morning:

    Google and Apple are under fire for approving an app that lets men in Saudi Arabia track their wives and control them leaving the country.

    At least that’s how Absher is portrayed. The app, which is available for download from both iTunes and Google Play — at this time, lets the so-called head of a household manage their finances and control the movements of their dependants — which includes their wives and children.

    Part of it functions like a regular government portal — such as my.gov.au in Australia. You renew your driver’s licence and registration, and pay traffic fines and it seems anyone (women and teenagers included) can download it.

    However an expose of Absher by thisinside.com suggests a darker side, a connection to a government-maintained database of people’s movements.

    The app lists women and children under a user’s guardianship, categorised by whether they are in the country or overseas. Screenshots by the publication indicate you can track your dependants with government help.

    Another screenshot shows how the head of a household can manage the travel of their dependants. They can say where these dependants go and for how long. Users of the app have a direct line of communication with the government to stipulate travel and can get a log of their dependants’ overseas travel, including the airport, check-in date, flight, and arrival details.

    The Government has lost a vote in the HoR on a substantive policy issue. Any GG would accept advice from the PM that the vote could be considered a vote of no confidence and grant a double dissolution.

    The double dissolution provision comes into play if the Senate and House twice fail to agree on a piece of legislation (in section 57 called “a proposed law”, and commonly referred to as a “trigger”). When one or more such triggers exist, the Governor-General may dissolve both the House and Senate – pursuant to section 57 of the Constitution – and issue writs for an election in which every seat in the Parliament is contested.

    The conditions stipulated by section 57 of the Constitution are:

    – The trigger bill originated in the House of Representatives.
    – Three months elapsed between the two rejections of the bill by the Senate (“rejection” in this context can extend to the Senate’s failure to pass the bill, or to the Senate passing it with amendments to which the House of Representatives will not agree).
    – The second rejection occurred in the same session as the first, or the subsequent session, but no later.

    Clock ticking on family trusts as ALP takes ‘bazooka’ approachJAMES KIRBYFollow @kirby_journo

    2 hours ago February 12, 2019
    2 Comments

    The sleeper issue in tax as we face a looming ALP government is family trusts. Advisers report investors and small business owners are already trying to unwind arrangements before the election.

    There are more than 600,000 trusts in the market and perhaps two million people involved across Australia. Total assets in the sector are close to $500 billion — it is a major issue.

    At present, family trust distributions allow family members to get paid and take advantage of low tax rates for such as the $18,000 tax free threshold and the 19 per cent rate up to $37,000.

    Under the ALP plans, anyone who is a beneficiary of a trust will have to pay income tax of at least 30 per cent.

    The move on trusts has a lot in common with the ALP’s related moves to scrap cash rebates on franked dividends to retirees. At face value the reform hits a rich layer of society which can afford it. On closer inspection, the proposed change is a blunt instrument. It may trap very wealthy people who could be exploiting the tax system, unfortunately it may also capture a large swath of investors who have been operating legitimately in trying to build businesses or investment portfolios.

    The opposition has repeatedly said that its attack on trusts is all about stamping out “income splitting” and that it only intends to apply higher taxes to so-called discretionary trusts and will leave other trusts such as “fixed trusts” alone.

    In reality, discretionary trusts represent the vast bulk of activity. Though advisers suggest there is a lift in attempt to switch activity into fixed trusts such a move is riddled with problems including differing land tax laws in different states.

    From the Oz. First, they came for the franking credits..

    Andrew Bolt interviewed a US lawyer about the Covington Catholic School kids and talked about the excellent prospects of suing the ABC here in Oz – oooooooh bring it on because our defamation laws are very different to those in the US …

    It is true that there are differences between the defamation laws here as against the USA.
    However, there are subtleties in US law (I read this on Powerline I think).
    It is notoriously difficult for a “public figure” to win a defamation case in the US, and this is the standard most commonly cited.
    It is, however, a little easier for an ordinary Joe to win a defamation case.
    But here’s the rub for the US media.
    If the plaintiff is a minor (as the Covington boys are) the standard for a defamation action to succeed is extremely low, which makes their case almost a slam dunk.
    This is why tweets and comments are being madly deleted.
    What is hilarious is that these “journos” spent 3-4 years at j’ism college learning everything about social justice but nothing about actual justice pursuant to the law of the land.
    I’ll bet there have been numerous crash course “Defamation 101” sessions run by in-house legal counsel at these media companies over the last couple of weeks.

    If the weak arsed libs had any ticker they would be all over tits and the rest of the detritus who passed this abortion of a bill today.

    Over 700 Manus illegals have already made the medical odyssey, none have been sent back so the temporary part of this bullshit is wrong. Secondly the fact it refers only to current illegals at Manus who have all failed refugees status can be altered by administrative amendment.

    The Rocky Hill L&E decision by CJ Preston is another place for the libs. The founder of the edo hears a case brought by the edo. That is a manifest conflict of interest. Of course the consortium, GRL, brought no counter evidence on the science presented on behalf of the greenie activist group, groundswell, who could only get standing courtesy of turdballs failure to remove the standing provisions in such matters. But the libs could call any number of scientists to pillory the science.

    The liars attacks on Trusts, franking, negative gearing and capital gains tax should be the next port of call.

    Finally Australia’s power prices.

    The EU is a powerhouse!

    For one reason and one reason alone. The Euro is a strait jacket and totally inappropriate for the political/economic system they have. Unless the system is either brought closer together through a federation type setup it will continue to cause havoc. The other choice is simply doing away with the Euro and the nations go back to their own currencies.

    In any event It’s only been about three or four years since they began to understand the Euro was not meant to simply satisfy Germany and its satellites.

    I don’t think it matters greatly in the sense that there’s no real need to suss out who the new nameplate could be.

    Stop making excuses like that. In the final analysis Juncker’s drinking bouts doesn’t cause economic stagnation. Macron, as bad as he is, has been the only frog president since the 70’s to try some economic reforms.

    The Euro has been a total fucking disaster for Europe and as I said the currency has been run as though it was Germany’s own currency and the rest were there for the ride. Like it or lump it.

    Unless there’s some monetary disequilibrium in the US, Europe or China in a major way, gold rallies are a dead cat bounce and should be sold.

    There little to no inflation around and although the Fed did lower expectations on further hikes , the bounce we’re seeing now was in reaction to that.

    Sell it when you can and buy dollar based assets such as US stocks. If you’re really , really looking for safety then just buy the Swiss Franc. It’s boring, but the Swiss will never let you down. 🙂

    My former business in mine and exploration site support, relied on a good gold price which encouraged more investment and expansion.

    When times and prices were bad, things slow down, but anyone in the mining game knows that good times are cyclical and nobody can predict what is going to happen in the world.

    But why are you comparing to fiat money? Who leaves a mountain of money in cash? You buy stocks or real estate with it. That’s the correct comparison because in the modern day cash is no longer a store of value. IT’s a medium of exchange. Store of value are investments. I get shaky if I sell a stock and end up with a cash balance. I hate cash.

  180. Pedro the Ignorant

    What would be the operating margin, Pedro?

    JC.

    Not an easy question to answer, JC, without intimate knowledge of the operating and processing procedures of the particular mine, but given Fosterville’s results, they would be well in truly in the black.

    As a rule of thumb, underground operations are usually more expensive than open cut, but many factors get involved, including location, transport, water and power supplies, workforce availability etc. etc. etc.

    A small gold operation not too remote from a regional centre and contracting out its processing could return a profit from about 2-3 gpt. Bigger mines can go less from bigger turnover once they have amortised their capital equipment costs (which can be eye watering amounts).

    Is Adam Schiff Satisfied with NBC News?
    Two years after telling the network he had ‘more than circumstantial evidence’ he still hasn’t produced it.

    NBC News proudly notes that “Meet the Press” is the longest-running program on network television. But it’s unlikely anyone at the network will be looking back with pride on this week’s show. Almost two full years after Rep. Adam Schiff (D., Calif.) told NBC he had seen “more than circumstantial evidence” that associates of Donald Trump had colluded with Russia to rig the 2016 election, the network not only welcomed him back without demanding that he finally produce the evidence to support his claim. NBC gave him a platform to make new allegations.

    Those outside the world of Washington media might be less than hospitable to an acquaintance who had claimed to have evidence of a neighbor’s treason but still hadn’t produced it after 23 months. On Sunday, NBC’s Chuck Todd began by quoting some of the President’s recent comments on social media. “So now Congressman Adam Schiff announces, after having found zero Russian Collusion, that he is going to be looking at every aspect of my life, both financial and personal,” said Mr. Trump via Twitter.

    This seemed to be the moment for Mr. Todd to demand that Mr. Schiff, who is now chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, finally produce the evidence he has long claimed to have seen. But instead Mr. Todd simply asked Mr. Schiff to “explain the parameters of your investigation, where you’ve expanded. How far back into his finances do you plan to look?”

    He mustn’t be causing too many ripples amongst the SJW brigade despite a fundamental belief that
    God instituted monogamous marriage between male and female as the foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society.
    I’m surprised there hasn’t been a call to deny him entry to Australia.

    A family hailed as “true heroes” has taken more than 60 flood-stricken people and their pets into their two-storey home as they waited to be rescued from rising floodwaters in Townsville in north Queensland.

    A stream of people started heading to Alicia Populin’s two-storey house in Idalia as the neighbourhood was getting inundated on Sunday night.

    “We had dogs, we had cats, I think a guinea pig — I think we ended up with about 16 families here from our neighbourhood,” Ms Populin said.

    “They had called SES but there were just too many to evacuate at one time so they started walking in.”
    ‘I’ve got another family — is that OK?’

    Ms Populin said the water was knee-deep when neighbours, including a two-week-old baby, started turning up to seek refuge.

    “Because we had generators … I think people just realised, ‘OK, they’ve got light’ and headed towards the light.

    “We had a neighbour who had some sort of boat, tinny, and he was going out just around the street — if he could see anyone he would pick them up and bring them in.

    “Every time he’d say, ‘I’ve got another family — is that OK?’ and I said: ‘Of course, bring them in’.”

    The benefit of being the only prepper in the neighborhood is that you get to make friends easy in hard times.

    I can’t get livestock flood insurance in vicco, fire insurance for the sheep is a dollar premium for a thousand dollar cover, but flood insurance just isn’t buyable.

    AAC has made no referrence to insurance claims for their gulf stations and corporates like that usually can find a way smaller operators cannot.

    The inland tsunami has fubared a big slab of once productive country.

    Their green shorten live cattle export banning oligarchy will be running the country by the end of the financial year, indeed if shorten moved in parliment to ban live exports now, their turnbullites would support him in a bipartisan show of degrowth and deindustrialisation.

    In the current lending climate, how do you borrow heaps of money to restock and redevelop a wasteland when the industry could be shut down in months?.

    I reckon the bigger concern is how we’ve organized ourselves by living with the use of cards and the likelihood is we will be seeing more blackouts due to our power supplies becoming increasingly unreliable. Several hours of no power means not being able to buy the day’s food supply.

    If their gutless liberals had any stomach for the fight, they would get up in parliment and skewer shorten, demanding he give the devastated cattle farmers of queensland a golden guarantee that he would not kick them when they were down and ban their industry.

    Australia 2018. Known criminals issuing press releases.

    Underworld figure Mick Gatto has publicly declared he never threatened the life of “Lawyer X”, just days before the first hearing of a royal commission into the use of the barrister as a police informer.

    The ABC had on Sunday reported a senior Victoria Police officer had in 2016 given evidence that Mr Gatto was part of a group who threatened to kill the lawyer if proven she was an informer. Mr Gatto vigorously denied the allegation in a media release issued this afternoon.

    His lawyer, Martin Amad, said Mr Gatto was “considering his legal position” in the statement, titled “Mick Gatto Press Release”.

    “Mr Gatto denies having made any such threat regarding informer 3838 or being involved in the deaths of (Victor) Peirce and (Frank) Benvenuto,” the statement said.

    Multi peril insurance is mainly for crop failure, never thought of asking if it covered the stock being washed away.

    The mallee boys that have had half their annual rainfall and more in the last couple of months will pay up for the multi peril cover, then crop fence to fence with high inputs.

    Will multi peril cover a price collapse if the Tyrant of all the chicoms slams a tariff on barley?.

    The big financial disaster looming now is the risk of a good year producing more grain than australia can export and use domestically, leaving massive mountains of unsaleable grain. then tariffs, then a second good year following up making grain valueless.

    John, talking to a few blokes at the races the other day, it’s the wind and rain killing the cattle up North.

    At least with a drought, you can do something. Hand feed or whatever. You can’t do much with cattle up to their armpits in mud. Some, not all.

    But the wind is the worst thing. Drenched in water, nothing to eat much. No shelter to speak of.

    Even a human would perish pretty quickly in those circumstances.

    I don’t know precisely where the rain fell and to what effect exactly except it’s the Cloncurry area, heading down on the channel country.

    I may be totally off course here, but I know that country as well.
    It seems funny just the other day we were talking about damming and sending the water south.
    In those ranges, there are many places that could have made good dams, and some of this may have been averted , and the water used down south.
    It is interesting to note that during times of flood, the Murray steamers would cross country, such was the widespread flooding , prior to the regulation of the Murray water ways.

    Mother, 38, is arrested in front of her children and locked in a cell for seven HOURS after calling a transgender woman a man on Twitter

    Police officers detained Kate Scottow, 38, at her home in Hitchin, Hertfordshire
    More than two months after her arrest and she has had neither her mobile phone or laptop returned

    A mother was arrested in front of her children and locked up for seven hours after referring to a transgender woman as a man online.

    Three officers detained Kate Scottow at her home before quizzing her at a police station about an argument with an activist on Twitter over so-called ‘deadnaming’.

    The 38-year-old, from Hitchin, Hertfordshire, had her photograph, DNA and fingerprints taken and remains under investigation.

    More than two months after her arrest on December 1, she has had neither her mobile phone or laptop returned, which she says is hampering her studies for a Masters in forensic psychology.

    Once a beast goes down in mud, it can technically be alive and breathing, but it is as good as dead.

    The poor buggers are running out of bullets to shoot the downers.

    Dropping hay from helicopters to starving animals, then seeing the wonky ones drop onto the feed with relief, because they now have somewhere warm and dry to die on is a bastard.

    After a period of no feed and only tainted floodwater to drink, shock, stress and exposure carries the survivors off.

    Dunno how you insure against pneumonia.

    Jeez, I only knew about Warren and Keven Hart. What a couple of weeks.

    Indeed, human lapses really do (or especially) cross intersectional boundaries: an Elizabeth Warren caught yet again in a lie when more evidence emerges about her past cynical cultural appropriation of a Native American identity for careerist advancement; the late-night ethical progressive megaphone Jimmy Kimmel, suddenly snagged by an old tape in which he dresses up in blackface to do an abjectly racist caricature of NBA star Karl Malone; newly found racialist statements from a younger Joe Biden (adding to his ample corpus of race-based “gaffes”) from nearly a half-century ago suggesting that he believed racial segregation had its merits; African-American comedian Kevin Hart disinvited as Oscar host due to the reemergence of some of his old anti-gay jokes; the progressive attack-dog Joy Behar, reducing to a whimpering puppy when admitting to her own bout of blackface (oddly made worse by her editorializing that when she wore blackface she, presto, became a “beautiful African-American woman,” as if you cannot keep a stunning white woman down).

    And so on and on intersectional identity politics progresses down its pathway to nihilism.

    Trump gets a rare victory in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ;

    The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled for the Trump administration Monday in a case challenging its use of waivers to bypass environmental regulations in constructing parts of the border wall.

    The state of California and several environmental groups sued President Donald Trump and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in September 2017 to stop construction of a border wall prototype and ongoing repairs to 14 miles of an existing barrier in San Diego. (RELATED: DHS Sued For Not Assessing The Environmental Cost Of Mass Immigration)

    “Under the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 (IIRIRA), the Secretary of the DHS has long had the authority ‘to install additional physical barriers and roads … in the vicinity of the United States border,’” the 9th Circuit’s opinion states, quoting the IIRIRA.

    The IIRIRA grants the secretary of the DHS “the authority to waive all legal requirements” as is “‘necessary to ensure expeditious construction’ of those barriers and roads,” according to the 9th Circuit.

    The 9th Circuit’s three-judge panel ruled 2-1 in favor of the federal government. The dissenting judge, Consuelo Callahan, wrote she supported the Trump administration’s argument, but thought the court lacked jurisdiction to review California’s appeal.
