    Just sent this to my local member

    Please write to yours

    Dear Mr O’brien

    My name is ………and I live in your electorate and have met you at a fundraiser when you took over from Warren Truss.

    However, at the time, being a lifetime LNP voter, I brought up with you just how disgusted I was Malcom Turnbull had become Leader.
    Something I could tell by your face, you agreed with but obviously couldn’t say.

    The appalling replacement for that disaster is another disaster!
    Here is a letter by somebody else that was published in a Gold Coast newspaper, that explains only too well the way I am feeling.

    Dear Prime Minister Morrison, I have some questions about your press conference of Friday, March 15.
    The New Zealand mosque attacker described himself as an “eco-fascist”, and said “conservatism is dead, thank god.”
    Yet you described him as “right-wing”. Why was that? If it’s because he’s racist, are you suggesting racism is found on the right, but not on the left? Are the Liberals more racist than Labor?
    Right-wingers prefer individualism, we reject the hive-mind of identity politics, and we interact with others on the basis of assessed merit alone.
    History tells us that racism is born of collectivism, endemic to the left. Their current groupthink includes a victimhood totem-pole based on perceived racial disadvantage. What’s that, then?
    It’s no wonder you can’t get traction with conservatives, Mr Morrison; you don’t know your left from your right.
    (137 words)
    Peter Campion

    Firstly I assure you the Liberal party, completely traitorous to its right wing conservative base will never get my vote again.
    And unfortunately for you, many other ex liberal voters have made that decision as well, and as you know, many right wing voters know what happens with preferences and will do all they can to make sure they don’t flow your way.
    I am disgusted at the leftism and gutlessness of your party.
    And repulsed by the sickening statements made by a man who should know better in his position.
    Obviously, to anyone who read the shooter’s manifesto he was anything but right wing, so Mr Morrison had better retract that statement because if he doesn’t then I will get things moving and actively campaign against you with all the forces I can muster.
    I was one of the main organisers of the convoy of no confidence and one of the leaders of the convoys.
    The convoy out of Adelaide, which ended up being the largest into Canberra.
    I’m sorry for you Llew, as you seemed like a nice bloke, but this is a disgrace and you are the local member representing the traitorous Liberal party.
    I , like most right wing people, wish not to be active at all politically, and therefore am open to some correspondence, some reassurance that this traitorous behavior will stop.
    But this now gets down to a complete surrender to Marxist and socialism by the Liberal party, and there is quite a disgust out there, I can assure you.
    I don’t know how much you know of history, but you do realise what NAZI stood for?
    The NAZIS were socialists, called themselves socialist, controlled all aspects of life, and the means of production and just because the left wanted to disown them, and called them right wing doesn’t make it so.
    Surely white racists are not all right wing in the liberal party’s simplistic view of the world?
    Surely they haven’t swallowed the basic propaganda of the left?
    It won’t take much for me to organize things.
    I learned so much the last time, I’ll be much more efficient!

    Please do something for your country, not your party, ask them to denounce their left wing stance on Climate change, Paris and renewables, cowardly attacks on the people that once voted for them etc or stand as an independent.
    Sorry Llew it’s not personal, but if you aren’t fighting it, you are part of the problem.

    Yours Sincerely
    …………………..

    “Scott Morrison has ruled out any preference deal with One Nation ahead of the May election after Pauline Hanson revealed she would not support a bipartisan censure motion against controversial senator Fraser Anning for his response to the Christchurch massacre.

    “There’ll be no preference deals with One Nation,” the Prime Minister said.

    Labor’s Senate leader Penny Wong also called for Senator Anning to resign as a growing number of MPs look at ways to suspend or expel members and senators from federal parliament.”

    NZ authorities considering dropping Tarrant’s “terror” charge to “murder” so that the manifesto doesn’t come into evidence.

    Has been repeated on other news services although this does not guarantee accuracy!

    Regardless, what is wrong reading the manifesto? Is it just that the authorities don’t want people to ‘get ideas’? Similarly, the video taken by the gunman – I understand it will be bloody and unsettling to some but the NZ Govt are threatening huge fines and possible imprisonment for mere possession.

    As the Christchurch attacks unfolded, I knew I had to quit my job at Sky News
    As a young Muslim woman, I had many crises of conscience working here.
    I realised pretty quickly though that the Sky News I worked on wasn’t focused on reporting facts and informing the public. Rather, conservative media commentators came together with current and former right-wing politicians, disseminating misinformation which bordered on conspiracies.

    All Sky employees are white supremacists
    All Muslims are terrorists

    Labor’s Senate leader Penny Wong also called for Senator Anning to resign as a growing number of MPs look at ways to suspend or expel members and senators from federal parliament.

    As was discussed elsewhere on the Cat yesterday, perhaps they should look to Section 8 of the Parliamentary Privileges Act 1987 which says:

    A House does not have power to expel a member from membership of a House.

    Of course, that doesn’t mean it can’t be repealed or changed……

    Love yer work, Struth, and I’m honoured.
    I’m in BobKat’s seat, and he’s dodging me at the moment; not responding to texts, emails, or phone calls.
    And he dodges me in person out in public.
    I think my lectures make his brain hurt.

    He dodges me, too.
    Of course, I bag him mercilessly in the local papers.

    A few hours per day lurking here, (and a select few other places), and I have the inspiration I need for that day’s letters and texts.

    I had a friendly phone call from AFP a decade ago about my dissenting views on Keith Ellison’s website. Should have known better but his election to Congresss shocked me. I actually used to prepare AFP briefs as a public servant (Whitlam era) so I had no fear of our Feds.

    Anyway he tried to shame me as Islamophobic but when I mentioned I have Muslims in my family he quickly changed the subject after getting me to affirm I had no bad intentions towards the Congressman, ‘Oh I’m just an old curmudgeon officer, I like to mouth off”. Note police always put pressure on you to feel guilt, fishing for evidence or just to put you in your place, don’t mind the latter but dislike the former.

  34. Knuckle Dragger

    Bullshit Notofan.

    One of the police involved in the Endeavour Hills thing is a long standing friend of mine, and a tough nut to boot.

    Just so you know, it’s a bit hard to think about shooting someone in the leg while you’re being stabbed in the face.

    What they should have done is put half a dozen in Haider’s filthy head, then cut it off and delivered it to the front door of the Dandenong mosque, daintily placed on top of a rotting pig carcass as a warning.

    But the piece of shit is dead, so that’s the important thing.

  35. DrBeauGan

    Don’t these stupid people see that banning the manifesto is going to persuade some loonies that it must have contained some good stuff? And that banning the video likewise will persuade some murderous loonies to try it for themselves?

    I was in favour of leaving the Islamic atrocities on the net so that ordinary people could see for themselves what kind of scum we are up against. The same applies to the NZ killer.

    Not once were they challenged on their hypocrisy. They keep talking about white supremacy but not in relation to a small group of nutters rather about all Caucasians being a particularly nasty and vicious bunch. It is as if not one of those people knew anything about the pre-colonial history of the Americas, Africa, Middle East, or Asia. Caucasians were consistently portrayed as the bad people on the planet. That whole debate was a demonisation of Caucasians.

    I perhaps managed 10 minutes but only because I hoped someone on the panel was prepared to think about the issue in the broader context of human behavior.

    If the Liberals had a Trump, Penny Wong’s trolling would be flipped on its head and crushed today after revelations that NSW Labor has decided to target Asians in the lead-up to the election. He would point out that the ALP has been abusing and – in some cases – inciting the murder of Asians since the nineteenth century. He would also remind the public of Bill Shorten’s infamous 2014 rant:

    WHEN Bill Shorten stood on a flatbed truck to address a union rally at the gates of the Australian Submarine Corp in Adelaide on Tuesday, he seized on the worst instincts of old Australia and made a pitch to workers that stank with racist and protectionist rhetoric.

    It was an inexcusable performance from the Labor leader who should, and does, know better. In opposing the mooted purchase of Japanese submarines, Shorten roused his flag-waving union audience with references to race, fear and protectionism.

    “Under Labor, we will build ships and submarines in Australia because we love this country!” Shorten said, reflecting the overtly nationalist sentiment in his audience who responded with wild cheers. Then he seized on the fear of invasion, deeply ingrained in the psyche of old Australia.

    “For goodness sake, Tony ­Abbott, buy a map of the world,” he said. “We are an island, Tony ­Abbott, and our navy matters.”

    Then came the thinly veiled ­racism. Australian Manufacturing Workers Union national secretary Paul Bastian said, “Japanese subs on the way. Do you feel betrayed?”

    The union workers responded: “Yes!”

    As Shorten stood before the crowd, one man in the audience went where he shouldn’t have. “Last time we had Jap subs, they were in bloody Sydney Harbour,” he said.

    This was Shorten’s big chance. When he spoke, he should have rejected this view and made it clear Labor opposed importing submarines because it undermined the local shipbuilding industry and risked jobs, however retrograde this view is.

    Instead, Shorten went for the cheap applause and amplified the racist rhetoric of his interjector. “This is a government with a short memory,” Shorten said. “In the Second World War, 366 merchant ships were sunk off Australia.”

    The figure was wrong but the message was clear.

    Here was the alternative prime minister giving voice to the view that, because Australia fought a war against Japan from 1941 to 1945, we should not purchase their submarines for our own defence. He seemed to be suggesting that Japan was still our enemy.

    The video shows how unhinged he was that day:

  41. struth

    Thanks Peter.

    It was such a well written letter that you posted.
    I firmly believe that most so called right wing politicians don’t know a bloody thing about political history, or politics.
    From my experience, they are usually people concerned by some local industry situation being hampered by leftism or from a line of rich old money farmers etc who just see it as a natural side to be on without too much thought about why they are on it.

    Politically, most of our reps are quite ignorant.
    They understand less taxes better for business, and that other people’s taxes should be spent in their area.
    That’s about it.
    They’ve got a few backers from local business in there for them, and that’s it, plus party financial help if you get preselected for Libs.
    They’re not passionate about actual politics at all.
    Contrasted to the left’s raging Alinsky laden , ideologically driven socialists, completely absorbed in radicalism, and we don’t stand a chance.
    That letter, I hope will be read, beacause he’s a local country rep, basically, is to give him a boot up the arse about the general lethargy of the Liberal representation.
    I’ll have at least one sign posted semi trailer sitting at the front of his office, sign posted.
    But I reckon I can do a whole lot better than that.

    Now Notafan, have I misread that bit, or have you misplaced your control of the English language?

    Everything the left does is about gaining and keeping power. The fake compassion and crocodile tears are mere vote buying gimmicks. Once idiots are enchained with welfare the vote is near permanent. Not content with risky voting, they will import as many 3rd world peasants needed to cement permanent power.

  45. KD, I too misread Notafan’s post.
    Now I see what she means.
    She’s dryly quoting the Muslim narrative about the shooting.
    (Perhaps great big quotation marks may have helped)

    Im sure this will end well.

    Rights groups have tried to force a ban on the handheld rubber bullet launchers used by police, noting that France is one of only a handful of western countries to use them. Lawyers have said a number of people have lost eyes or hands as a result of the use of rubber-bullet launchers and explosive sting grenades.

    However, the French government argued that not enough force was used by police at the weekend, and urged a greater use of weapons by police.

    A junior interior minister, Laurent Nuñez, said on French radio on Monday that the police had been “less aggressive, less reactive than usual” over the weekend and promised a review of the instructions given to officers and their deployment.

    Philippe said: “Inappropriate orders were given to reduce the use of LBD [rubber bullet launchers].” He said he wanted a hardening of France’s “doctrine” of law and order, and special police squads would be deployed as anti-riot units.

    Abdul Aziz, who was born in Afghanistan but is an Australian citizen and lived in Sydney for 27 years, was inside the Linwood mosque with four of his children for Friday prayers when someone shouted that a gunman had opened fire.

    “He had on army clothes,” Aziz told Reuters on Sunday. “I wasn’t sure if he was the good guy or the bad guy. When he swore at me, I knew that he’s not the good guy.”

    When he realised the mosque was being attacked, the 48-year-old ran towards the gunman, picking up a credit card machine as a makeshift weapon. After the gunman had run back to his car to get another gun, Aziz said he threw the credit card machine, ducking between the cars to avoid gunfire.

    He then picked up a gun dropped by the attacker and pulled the trigger, but it was empty. “I was screaming at the guy, ‘come over here, come over here’ – I just wanted to put his focus on me,” Aziz said.

    Aziz said the gunman went inside the mosque, and he followed, eventually confronting him again.

    When he saw me with the shotgun in my hands, he dropped the gun and ran away toward his car. I chased him,” he said. “He sat in his car and with the shotgun in my hands, I threw it through his window like an arrow. He just swore at me and took off.”

    Aziz has been called a hero by the mosque’s acting imam, Latef Alabi, who said he believed the death toll would have been far higher if it had not been for Aziz’s actions.

    A person is considered apostate if he or she converts from Islam to another religion. Apostasy can occur even if one does not formally renounce Islam. Those who were forced to denounce Islam under conditions of duress or out of fear of persecution or during war (Taqiyya or Kitman) are not considered apostates.

    Struth, I always like to compare events to the old days. Say there is a serious incident at the pub and they take everyone’s names, that wouldn’t bother me. Just because it’s the ‘net and everything’s amplified we can go overboard with worry. As I said upthread, the Fed who gave me a warning a decade ago was a perfectly nice fellow just doing his job.

    What worries me more is they really are more in the dark than we’d wish when it comes to guaranteeing our security. I did some history research once where I could discern a well funded network of Communists during WW2, in hindsight using the ‘net and books written later. In fact they got close to our then PM. Then I found the declassified part of the pre-Asio report about the same thing, and it looks like they had barely any idea what was going on at the time.

    Short of full Big Brother surveillance I’m just not sure how our everyday safety can be maintained, which of course I’m not advocating, but how else can it be done? I feel for those tasked with protecting us, doing the best they can. It’s still better in Australia than elsewhere.

    ‘Egg Boy’ won’t take action against Anning

    By Rick Goodman
    Australian Associated Press
    19 minutes ago March 19, 2019

    The Melbourne teenager dubbed ‘Egg Boy’ won’t pursue legal action against Senator Fraser Anning or the politician’s supporters who put him in a headlock, his lawyer says.

    Will Connolly, 17, was whacked in the face by Senator Anning when he slapped an egg on the politician’s head on Saturday, following the senator’s widely-condemned comments on the Christchurch mosque shooting.

    “Our client has no intention of making a complaint or taking any action against Senator Anning,” Mr Connolly’s lawyer Peter Gordon told reporters in Melbourne on Tuesday.

    From the Oz. Not even with Adam Houda offering to represent him for free?

    They actually get the unsound to dig their own graves first. It is only the shoveling the dirt on top afterwards that’s involved and the next group of unsound can do that.

    kuffar are not apostates

    I believe (without claiming any authority – I may well be wrong) the theory is that everyone is born a Muslim and, therefore, everyone who does not live according to Islamic practices is an apostate. If you are born and baptised Catholic you are an apostate.

    I suppose we habitually think your membership in a religious group is a matter of choice, grace or some other personal thing, but this is simply how we fit in with our world.

    I suspect that the Islamic view is that, if you are born, you already owe your existence to Allah and he has already prescribed how you should live. Everyone living ‘the wrong way’ are an affront to the universe. The distinction we make between ourselves, deity, the universe as a gigantic clockwork machine might be a continuous whole for others.

    Seems weird to us but I can imagine people thinking this way.

    I gather the Japanese used to have a similar attitude to family, nation, Emperor etc. It was a debt you could never repay since no act was equal to your life – except giving your life.

    Mountain out of molehill.

    From Muslim scholar,

    Apostasy in Islam is commonly defined as the conscious abandonment of Islam by a Muslim in word or through deed. It includes the act of converting to another religion or non-acceptance of faith to be irreligious, by a person who was born in a Muslim family or who had previously accepted Islam.

    That is a novel modern interpretation that goes with the ‘revert’ claim. It is a great stretch of the term fitrah.

    I think muslims are pretty clear about who they regard as an apostate, you only have to look at online forums where they they hurl the epithet takfir at each other.

  121. stackja

    In “The Roar of the Lions: The Asymmetric Campaigns of Muhammad,” Russell G. Rodgers of U.S. Army Forces Command analyzes how Muhammad consistently employed tactics and methods outside the then-current conventions of his culture’s definition of warfare. Muhammad demonstrated how a small group with unifying ideology can triumph over a larger more sophisticated foe that lacked firm unifying principles. Rodgers notes that some of Muhammad’s enemies might not have even realized the danger Muhammad’s movement posed until it was too late. The author carefully abstains from generalizing the personal experiences of the Prophet, but one can not help but wonder how his ruthless use of assassination and mass executions may have sanctioned a continuing belief among his more militant adherents in the expendability of human life in pursuit of their cause.

    Thus, when Muhammad called those around him to Islam, he was calling on them to give submission primarily to himself and not to Allah.

    I had remembered how to get to woodlands before my signal died, at least approximately.

    I’ve had other suggestions from zulu, but given that my phone won’t work far from the bright lights, the chances of finding them within a reasonable time look small.

    So I’m gonna stay back at the hotel and read a book and smoke.

    Why Does The Mainstream Media Purposely Ignore Mass Killings Of Christians Across The Globe?

    Last week, when a deranged lunatic gunned down dozens of Muslims at two mosques in New Zealand it suddenly became the biggest news story in the world, and rightly so.

    It was a major news event, and it needed to be reported. But shouldn’t mass killings of Christians be given the same sort of media coverage? Sadly, we all know that doesn’t happen. Whenever there is a mass killing of Christians, it is usually entirely ignored by the mainstream media in the United States, and it doesn’t take a genius to figure out why this is happening. Those that control the mainstream media consider Christians to be one of the main obstacles to “progress” in this country, and so any story that would put Christians in a positive or sympathetic light simply does not fit any of the narratives that they are pushing.

    As a result of the lack of media coverage, the vast majority of Americans do not know that “4,136 Christians were killed for faith-related reasons” last year.

    That number breaks down to an average of 11 per day.

    In Nigeria, more than 120 Christians have been gunned down or killed with machetes over the past three weeks, but Breitbart was the only big media outlet to report on it.

    As Breitbart News alone reported among major news outlets, Fulani jihadists racked up a death toll of over 120 Christians over the past three weeks in central Nigeria, employing machetes and gunfire to slaughter men, women, and children, burning down over 140 houses, destroying property, and spreading terror.

    The New York Times did not place this story on the front page; in fact, they did not cover it at all. Apparently, when assessing “all the news that’s fit to print,” the massacre of African Christians did not measure up. The same can be said for the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, the Detroit Free Press, the LA Times, and every other major paper in the United States.

    And of course Breitbart is not exactly “mainstream” media.

    So why won’t anyone else report on this?

    And this isn’t the first time this has happened. Last June, twelve entire Christian villages in central Nigeria were completely wiped out.

    In only days, a dozen villages in Nigeria’s Plateau state were wiped out. The affected communities surround the city of Jos—known as the epicenter of Christianity in northern Nigeria’s Middle Belt.

    As many as 200 Christians had been killed, however, some residents fear the death toll may be even higher, as more bodies are yet to be recovered, while others were burned beyond recognition. On Sunday, 75 of the victims were buried in a mass grave.

    I’ll bet that most of you had not heard about that until now.

    On the other side of the world, 20 innocent people were slaughtered when Muslim radicals bombed a Roman Catholic cathedral in January.

    On January 27, Muslim extremists bombed a Roman Catholic cathedral on the Philippine island of Jolo, killing some 20 people and injuring dozens of others.

    Once again, this is yet another mass killing that was almost entirely ignored by the mainstream media.

    Is the anti-Christian bias among the mainstream media so strong that they can’t even bring themselves to report the basic facts to us?

    People deserve to know what is happening. Christian persecution is rising in almost every nation on the planet, and this huge ongoing crisis should be on our front pages on a continual basis.

    But instead, we never get to hear any of these stories unless we seek out alternative sources of information.

    Over in China, the persecution of Christians has reached a frightening crescendo. Recently, officials have been going house to house and replacing pictures of Jesus Christ “with pictures of dictator Mao Zedong and/or China’s current authoritarian president, Xi Jinping”.

    The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) continues to harass and persecute Christians and, in recent months, has taken to removing pictures of Jesus Christ from inside homes and replacing them with pictures of dictator Mao Zedong and/or China’s current authoritarian president, Xi Jinping.

    In addition, Communist officials have removed Christian symbols and phrases on the outside of homes and replaced them with phrases praising socialist materialism.

    But they aren’t stopping there. Bibles are being burned, and any churches that do not “cooperate” with Chinese officials are being either shut down or destroyed. Earlier in 2019, one of the largest megachurches in the entire country was literally blown to pieces with dynamite.

    Chinese authorities blew up a well-known Christian megachurch earlier this year, inflaming long-standing tensions between religious groups and the Communist Party.

    Witnesses and overseas activists said the paramilitary People’s Armed Police used dynamite and excavators to destroy the Golden Lampstand Church, which has a congregation of more than 50,000, in the city of Linfen in Shanxi province

    We are talking about evil that is on a level that is difficult to comprehend.

    So why won’t the mainstream media talk about any of this?

    Similar things are happening on the other side of the world too. In Eritrea, Christians are being imprisoned in “small shipping containers in scorching heat”.

    Since 1993, President Afwerki has overseen an authoritarian brutal regime that rests on massive human rights violations. During the 2019 World Watch List reporting period, government security forces conducted many house-to-house raids and imprisoned hundreds of Christians in inhumane conditions, including small shipping containers in scorching heat.

    And in North Korea, Christians are “being hung on a cross over a fire, crushed under a steamroller, herded off bridges, and trampled underfoot”.

    According to charity Aid to the Church in Need, at least 200,000 Christians have gone missing in North Korea since 1953 — many of those have been summarily executed. As to the specific treatment of those persecuted, the 2014 UN Commission of Inquiry report discovered that the North Korean regime has been guilty of “crimes against humanity.”

    According to Christian Solidarity Worldwide, violent incidents against Christians include “being hung on a cross over a fire, crushed under a steamroller, herded off bridges, and trampled underfoot.”

    If you were to replace “Christians” with some other favored group in any of the examples that I have just shared, you would instantly have front page news all over the planet.

    The mainstream media is definitely not “independent”, and they are not looking out for you.

    They have their own agenda, and anything that does not fit that agenda does not get to be part of “the news”.

    So far in 2019, there have been 453 Islamic terror attacks in which 1,956 people have been murdered. But you will never hear those numbers from the mainstream media.

    Instead, when the mainstream media talks about Bible-believing Christians it is almost always an attack story. As a recent Breitbart article aptly observed, having “an anti-Christian bias” has become “the last acceptable prejudice”.

    How much mileage can be gained from Muslims murdering Christians, when Christians in America are often seen as an obstacle to the “progress” desired by liberals? The left sees Christians in the United States as part of the problem and seeks to undermine their credibility and influence at every turn rather than emboldening them.

    Anti-Christian bias has been rightly called “the last acceptable prejudice,” one that few bother condemning.

    It is time to turn off the mainstream news for good.

    They quit reporting “the news” a long time ago, and now it is all about promoting one left-wing narrative after another.

    Today, trust in the media is at an all-time low, and it is easy to understand why so many Americans are absolutely sick and tired of being lied to by the big media companies.

    Turkish President warns NZ over mosque attacks, invokes Gallipoli

    An hour ago March 19, 2019

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has referenced Gallipoli and the Anzacs World War II campaign as he responded to the Christchurch terror attacks, saying anyone who goes to Turkey for anti-Muslim reasons. will be “returned in coffins”.

    Erdogan — in full campaign mode for March 31 municipal elections for his AKP party — has presented the attack as part of an assault on Turkey and Islam more broadly and projected the video of the killings at his rallies over the weekend to comment on what he called rising Islamophobia.

    That drew a sharp rebuke from New Zealand, for using controversial video shot by the Christchurch mosque gunman as an election campaign prop.

    Yesterday, according to the Hurriyet News Daily, he doubled down, referring Gallipoli campaign by allied forces, including the Australian and New Zealand troops, in World War I, saying Turkey would “write history” again if anyone stood against Turks, Muslims and all the oppressed.

    “Your grandparents came, some of them returned in coffins. If you come as well like your grandfathers, be sure that you will be gone like your grandfathers,” he said

    “If Turkey faces a test similar to those that happened in Gallipoli in the First World War, the country is capable of doing the same again,” he said.

    Erdogan said that the shooter had entered Turkey twice according to Turkish intelligence. “This terrorist entered Turkey twice. In the first one, he stayed for three days, and on his second visit, he stayed in Turkey as well as in its neighbouring countries for 43 days to conduct ‘works’,” Erdogan said, according to the Hurriyet report

    children walk out of school to demand that their parents’ generation takes responsibility for leaving them a planet to live on.

    Typical of the genre. “Demand” something from someone.

    We need to fundamentally re-evaluate our relationship to ownership, work and capital. The impact of a dramatic reconfiguration of the industrial economy require similarly large changes to the welfare state. Basic incomes, large-scale public works programmes, everything has to be on the table to ensure that the oncoming system shocks do not leave vast swathes of the global population starving and destitute.

    So we’ll destroy the foundations of a system that has lifted more people out of poverty than ever to satisfy some children who have no idea of the scale of climate change, either in terms of its time scale or in terms of its magnitude.
    What is as bad is that someone paid McDuff to write that crap and I was sucker enough to read it!

    “Terrorism is the price we pay for living in a diverse open society”.

    So we agree on this. A truism as it were.
    Obviously the populace isn’t going to wear this, so the government is going to try to suppress said ‘terrorism’.
    They have two mechanisms which they can adjust to do this, the ‘diverse’ knob or the ‘open’ knob.
    Which one do you think they are going to tinker with?
    Do we remain a ‘diverse open society’ after they are done?

    If any of this happened back in the not so distant past, about the time I’d argue with dot about council legitimacy as a government department, when Tony Abbott won an election and disappeared, etc, to see how far we’ve succumbed to tyranny in such a short time.
    It started with the gun ban but the tipping point was the time Abbott was elected and put Malcom in his ministry and went missing.
    Now combined with our marching zombie children from an education system that is anything but, and a media brainwashed by the same corrupt system, we are banned from questioning, we are banned from seeing, and we are banned from talking.

    They despise those that would point it out to them and others.
    Plus for many, their failed programs are a rich source of corrupt payment.

    As far as I can tell, Zerohedge are NOT hosting this video. They are an aggregator site, they reprint from various places (generally they reprint in whole without a whole lot of filtering). There’s an article reprinted from http://consortiumnews.com showing a few blurry single screen shots of the terrorist (which by the way it no more than ALL the major news sites have shown elsewhere). Strangely, they took down ZH but not the original which ZH reprinted from. The article is also highly critical of the authorities for failing to provide any warning. It complains about warrantless data access, private companies being handed police records, targeting of journalists, etc.

    The original video and the whole box and dice was posted on Twitter. Can’t imagine why that site is still up … any ideas?

    That reminds me, the process for buying these guns in NZ is pretty tricky, you need to go through a heap of background checks (including family). How closely do they really bother going through these background checks? This guy should have raised a bunch of red flags. I would very much like to review the paperwork from the Grafton lad’s license applications and background checks. Who reviewed that stuff? Accountability … not cover-up if you please!!

    Best I can conclude is that the NZ government are demanding the removal of sites that have something bad to say about what the government has been up to. They are simply squelching criticism.

    My take:
    How news media can help prevent shooting massacres
    There is no mystery about school killings. The real causes are staring us in the face; criminological research demonstrates that these are copycat crimes.

    Notice how they echo and change the storylines of past crimes: locations were in the 1980s post offices, then became gun-free schools and malls; perpetrators were first PLO terrorists, then aging males with relationship issues and in recent years mentally unstable young men.

    Research in the USA showed that the mainstream news media provide training manuals for copycats, with their inset boxes listing weapons in ‘arsenals’; they refer to the killers’ ‘meticulous planning’ while laying out easy bullet-point lists of actions leading up to the crimes. The killers he researched kept articles from Time and Newsweek, and obsessively watched news and current affairs reports on how they could easily get guns to commit massacres. Now they turn to NBC, CNN and ABC and the online media. The news shows, not computer games or violent movies, are the most effective teachers of mass killing.

    We understand now that people build maps or scripts of how to act from what they see others around them doing. The more alike someone seems, the more their situation can be applied to yours, the more likely it is you will act like them. This applies to choice of fashions and musical tastes, choosing education options – and to committing crimes. News people know this and enforce internal guidelines to help prevent suicide and crime copycats. But for a mass shooting, the urgent opportunity to boost audiences and present copy overwhelms their ethical hesitation, and they convince themselves their carefully-preened moral outrage is a force for good.

    But they don’t stop there. The responsible news media provide billions of dollars in name recognition, photo publicity and hours of discussion about the significance of the killings and their perpetrators. They partner with political activists, fomenting hatred of the journalists’ political enemies and creating moral campaigns to punish them. Their actions invest the killers with a huge social significance, that these mentally unstable, morally deficient losers would never otherwise achieve.

    Detailed news ‘instruction’ has taught even the mentally handicapped how; and enormous social significance is guaranteed if they act. Our news services created the string of mass murders, and made an engine to keep it going.

    News reporters are not the only ones causing the massacres. What kind of people are ready at a moment’s notice to profit from mass killings? Who are the people who write the copy for them, who stand in front of their cameras and gravely incite moral outrage at whole classes of political enemies? The news media have formed strong and profitable partnerships with pet activists.

    In Australia, gun control activism started in the late 1970s. Activists quickly partnered with journalists sensationalizing and editorializing gun violence. Their influence grew and the activists brought the American fashion for gun control into the Australian media scene. A string of massacres started; the initiating event of massacres in Australia was the 1984 bikie gang ambush called by media the Milperra Massacre, a stupid private melée that left seven dead including an innocent bystander. The stage was set for Australian copycats, and (depending what you count), over the next 12 years the Australian media taught more than a dozen violent losers who actually committed massacres.

    In October 1995 a current affairs team joined activists from the National Coalition for Gun Control and Greenpeace. They carefully detailed how to buy guns illegally, demonstrating every step with an attractive spokes-model. They showed how easy it could be to use the guns, then blew apart a melon like a victim’s head. Then a prominent activist framed our fear as destiny: “We are going to have a massacre in Tasmania!’ Six months later, the Police asked Martin Bryant when he bought his assault rifle. The answer: ‘About five months ago.’

    Advertisement
    This program was explicitly named by the Coroner as the cause of at least one other death – that of a Melbourne man who travelled to Tasmania, bought a gun as taught by the program, and killed himself. A journalist asked the NCGC activist, whose words may have triggered the killings, about this verdict and he lashed out with bitter hostility.

    There is a very obvious imitative trigger in mass killings, after the training phase of media communication to the prospective killer. It is quite usual that intensive media for one massacre is immediately rewarded by another, and for several smaller attacks to be foiled in the weeks after. The trigger for the Port Arthur killings was the unprecedented media coverage of the Dunblane killings of schoolchildren. No news editor or current affairs producer has ever been held to account for the massacres, yet the connection in timing is obvious.

    John Howard led the moralizers of Australian media and politics, a lynch mob against the people who didn’t do the crime. For three years it seemed any ‘nice’ person talking about guns had to say ‘I hate guns as much as anybody, but…’ before they could relate how normal life had involved guns. At the Sydney Olympics, shooters won the first gold medals and One voice kept at the public as most of Australia returned to productive issues, having crushed the shooters. Lee Rhiannon had grabbed hold of the fact that handguns, far more tightly controlled than long guns ever were, were still available if you jumped through the many hoops to get a license. Sympathetic journalists in a national broadcaster gave her a platform to claim, falsely, that handguns were easy to get. This led many to go through the tedious process to get legal guns, which filters out almost all irresponsibles. One foreign student took her advice, and although he was a bit weird a shooting club supported him; anecdotal evidence suggests that was partly out of fear of being accused of racism.

    In late 2002 the media went nuts over the Washington sniper killings. Weeks of media hysteria over guns combined with this student’s mental illness and personal crises. At the height of the Washington Beltway sniper headlines, he shot seven people at Monash University. A similar pattern had been followed; the news media with activist partners write stories about guns being easy to get, and so more people get them; then news media provide massacres as potent examples and publicity rewards to people who go on to kill.

    Now killers send publicity packages with photos, video and manifestos to media directly, and news editors confirm their complicity in the killings by using those publicity pictures and stories.
    he tools to break the cycle of killings already exist, in the guidelines used to stop copycat suicides. When you break them, as NineMSN did for the jumping suicide of a pretty newsreader, the chain of imitations can lead far and wide. Within 24 hours a woman jumped from a building in West Perth, killing her child; later a woman jumped from West Gate Bridge, killing her children too; later still a man threw his daughter to her death from that bridge, but stopped short and spared the lives of his other children.

    For massacres, called parasuicide events, the guidelines are clear and likely to be effective. They are:

    · Move massacre and suicide stories to lower prominence. Below the fold, further back, later in the bulletin, fewer words, without longwinded or detailed special reports.

    · Do not glamorise or demonise the actions of the perpetrators. Use the passive voice to make them less interesting.

    · Do not provide glamorous people as action models; do not use pictures that the perpetrator provides. Choose pictures that diminish rather than glorify their self-image.

    · Do not use words that might encourage people to think their own life patterns are similar to those of the perpetrators; emphasize the uniqueness of mental illnesses and situations of individuals.
    · Provide counter-suicide behavior guides, such as a hotline to call or quotes from groups that work with people at risk.

    · Do not emphasize the tools and methods of suicides or mass killings.

    And one more that is badly needed for media and police:

    · Don’t teach passive compliance as though the killer might not hurt you if you do what they want, or as though the authorities will be in time to help you. Teach people how to seize the initiative to save lives.

    Until our media adopt guidelines like these, copycat mass killings will continue.

    In one email exchange New Zealand police requested an American-based website preserve the emails and IP addresses linked to a number of posts about the attack, but were met with an expletive-filled reply.

    In a reply posted on the site, its founder described the request as “a joke” before calling New Zealand as a “s***hole country” and an “irrelevant island nation”.

    That reminds me, the process for buying these guns in NZ is pretty tricky, you need to go through a heap of background checks (including family). How closely do they really bother going through these background checks? This guy should have raised a bunch of red flags. I would very much like to review the paperwork from the Grafton lad’s license applications and background checks. Who reviewed that stuff? Accountability … not cover-up if you please!!

    The reality is that all background checking is done by bored jobsworths, in addition many are from different cultures so they may also not spot obvious issues even if they are diligent.

    All completely useless process right up until the point when government decides to use the process to kick their agenda into high gear. Then suddenly no new licenses and licenses being revoked.

    Incredibly dangerous to Freedom and Liberty whilst at the same time being completely useless at improving “Safety “.

    Spare a thought for the techie plods furiously combing the ‘net now.

    Must be short staffed, I see it took them until today to get Telstra to block Daily Stormer which had adopted Fridays events as its masthead. Also Kiwifarms, 4chan, 8chan, so I hear.

    Imagine them furiously reading Cat comments.

    Telstra imposed an Oz wide block on 8chan in the wee hours this morning. Easily circumvented with VPN and the typical channer always uses a VPN.

    The fact the Oz govt instructed them to do so is telling. The Turnbull govt, our intel agencies and perhaps even scomo himself, will soon be implicated in collusion with the Traitor44 regime.

    Best I can conclude is that the NZ government are demanding the removal of sites that have something bad to say about what the government has been up to. They are simply squelching criticism.

    It’s not about “optics” at this point. It’s about eliminating any doubt as to the approved narrative. Considering how many here have concluded guilt on the basis of media reports and official statements, I don’t know why they bother. The sheep are bleating in unison, as intended.

    Interesting, Chris.

    I’m thankful the murder of my family member happened well before all this publicity nightmare stuff, well before Cobby. Utterly heartbreaking for families, and it kills more than a human life – it destroys relationships. The notoriety of the serial killer just makes it worse. Like the people of Port Arthur, I can’t for the life of me remember his name, even though I’ve read it a thousand times. It’s how the mind heals itself.

    But the media parasites will never allow such healing – they make money and careers out of other people’s pain. C.L. put it perfectly – Vigiltainment. And when all the angles are exhausted, they proceed to the next tragedy.

    I despise them.

    ‘Vironmental scientist on Q&A last night. Get a load of just what a scientist this jerk off is.

    STEPHEN WILLIAMS, ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENTIST.. James Cook University

    I guess, um, I was, obviously, like everyone else, completely shocked by what happened in New Zealand. Um, and I guess I was almost equally shocked to see an Australian politician get up and say the things that he did. And, um, it just completely blew me away. Um, I guess my only real comment, which is a little bit flippant, I know, but, um, based on the comments that I’ve seen online, all hail Egg Boy, because… (CLEARS THROAT) I’ll leave it there. I think…

    STEPHEN WILLIAMS

    Yes, not nearly as violent as the response to that. I guess it was just a way of expressing his absolute disgust at something. And not only his disgust at what the guy was promoting, but to do it then. I mean, it’s so insensitive that it’s just mind blowing. And so, no, sorry, I completely support him.

    STEPHEN WILLIAMS

    Well, it’s obviously a completely devastating natural event. Um, the sad part about it, though, is that we’ve been basically saying it was going to happen for 30 years. The climate science has been predicting an increase in extreme events, and Roger alluded to some of them. You had, like, catastrophic wildfires in one part of the country. We had record-breaking heatwaves across all of the country, just about. We’ve had the hottest summer on record. We’ve had the hottest year on record. My son, who’s 18, has…17 of his 18 years have been the hottest records on year for the globe. I mean, there is just simply no denying the climate change impacts, and the fact that we are causing them, and that it has been predicted for decades now that we would start seeing increasing heatwaves, increasing flood events of…you know, massive, immense flood events. Increasing catastrophic fires, killer heatwaves. The last summer has been a great example of that, because basically we’ve been getting all of them simultaneously.

    Now, it’s impossible to just point at one particular event and say, “The Townsville flood was caused by climate change.” You can’t do that. But you can look at the fact that those kind of events, and not just the floods – the heatwaves, the cyclones, the fires, and so forth – have been steadily increasing, right along with the predictions that have been made now for several decades.

    TONY JONES

    It’s difficult to ask this in a quick way, but what is it that causes a low-pressure system of this intensity to stay put for nine days over one region?

    STEPHEN WILLIAMS

    Yeah, it’s an interesting question, because I was actually looking at something just recently about that, and it’s very tricky to relate it to climate change. So, basically, the theory is that a high-pressure system blocks the low-pressure system and basically maintains it in exactly the same position, and that’s mainly due to a kind of a global slowing down of the sort of circulation currents of the whole world. And that goes for both the atmospheric currents and also the ocean currents. Now, there’s recorded evidence of all of those things starting to slow down with climate change. And so the idea is that, basically, it’s that slowing down which is causing these things to sit.

    TONY JONES

    Do you fear, as a scientist… You said you predicted this would come. So, this is a 1-in-500-year event, it’s being called. Do you expect to see more of them?

    STEPHEN WILLIAMS

    Absolutely. Um…

    TONY JONES

    There’s no way to predict how quickly, but you expect…?

    STEPHEN WILLIAMS

    There’s no way to predict when the next one will be, but if you look at… I guess the indicators of temperature are much more reliable and much more easy to predict than rainfall, especially in Australia. I mean, it’s just been bang, bang, bang. It’s one year after another. It’s like 200 climate records broken. And I said the same thing last year. I teach a course on climate change, and I told the students how many records were broken in the previous year, and then this year I just tell them all again because all the ones from last year have been broken again. And, as I said, the last four years have been the hottest four years ever. So, yeah, it’s going to continue, unless we can do something about it.

    STEPHEN WILLIAMS

    No. I mean, you know… The effects of climate change on these kind of extreme events is not…you know, it’s not a theory, it’s not just someone’s idea – this is based on solid data. There’s literally now no doubt the climate is changing. There is literally now no doubt that it is humans that are causing it. We’ve been plotting the trajectory of both change in the past and trying to make solid predictions about the future now, as I said, for about 30 years. And of course, those projections are getting better and better. They’re not perfect, but it’s still been pretty damn good so far. And we are going to see more of this.

    TONY JONES

    Are you surprised…? If this event… If you’re right, if this event was caused by…well, likely caused by…one of the extreme weather events caused by climate change, does it worry you at all that the people most affected don’t necessarily agree with you?

    STEPHEN WILLIAMS

    Well, I think, actually, there’s been a big shift in that sort of opinion over the last year. I mean, you’ve now got farmers’ federations or farmers’ associations advertising on TV that they need to do something about climate change. We’ve got schoolkids striking. You know, go for it, kids. I think it was fantastic. There has been a real shift, and I think some of the politicians who are now… They’re really looking like out-of-date dinosaurs in trying to maintain that kind of a policy. And I think… Yeah. I think the political climate is also shifting.

    STEPHEN WILLIAMS

    Yes. I mean, I guess, from my point of view and my field, the things I’m concerned about is because nothing seems to be getting done about dealing with the root cause of the problem of all of these things that we’ve been talking about. And in the words of, actually, Malcolm Fraser, former prime minister… He actually made a comment one time that the climate is a bit too important to constantly put it on the back burner because of the economy. ‘Cause the fact is that if we ignore the climate, the economy’s going to go down the tubes.

    Just get a load of this worthless douchebag.

    They are not the arbiters of thought, speech, opinion, and especially not between private citizens.

    I agree with the sentiment Struth but the Govt’s clearly think they are the arbiters. And, the recent actions in geo-blocking/censorship should be of tremendous concern to all Australians.

    Definitely – my only vice is I like to buy Lottery Tickets – living in the Uk and Europe I bought EuroMillions Tickets when the Jackpot was large.

    I have been informed by the site I buy my tickets from, that the Australian Governemnt has declared them a Gambling Site – as I said n reply to them “What the Heck” = you are a service site where I pay you to go and buy Tickets in the Lotteries that I choose to participate on my behalf and you charge me a Fee for that Service which I am happy to pay then you send me a copy of the scanned ticket putchaed on my behalf with the Numbers I have Chosen in EuroMillions and PowerBall US when the Jackpots are really large

    Versus lottoland.com and lottoland.com.au who are licensed in NT but are a pure Gambling Site out of Gibraltar – they do not buy tickets and they offset with Insurance – that is a gambling Site – How in the Hell can a Bunch of Australian Bureacrats and Cretin Politiciasns do crap like this – Can someone advise why a Service is a Gamling Site when they purchase Tickets on my behalf at my bequest.

    Australin has gone to the DOGS – Liberals/Labor/Greens Politicians – Actually All Politicans are not worth paying for – are Sewer Bottom Feeding Fish NOT WORTH FEEDING

    From TheLotter.com when trying to purchase Ticket in Current US Powerball USD$550 Million but Net Cash Payout after 24% Federal Tax and 5% witholding for Overseas Distribution is only USD $ $237,850,000 – still on xe.com = AUD$335,020,146.77 = nothing to sneeze at

    Why Does The Mainstream Media Purposely Ignore Mass Killings Of Christians Across The Globe?


    Last week, when a deranged lunatic gunned down dozens of Muslims at two mosques in New Zealand it suddenly became the biggest news story in the world, and rightly so.

    It was a major news event, and it needed to be reported. But shouldn’t mass killings of Christians be given the same sort of media coverage? Sadly, we all know that doesn’t happen. Whenever there is a mass killing of Christians, it is usually entirely ignored by the mainstream media in the United States, and it doesn’t take a genius to figure out why this is happening. Those that control the mainstream media consider Christians to be one of the main obstacles to “progress” in this country, and so any story that would put Christians in a positive or sympathetic light simply does not fit any of the narratives that they are pushing.

    As a result of the lack of media coverage, the vast majority of Americans do not know that “4,136 Christians were killed for faith-related reasons” last year.

    That number breaks down to an average of 11 per day.

    In Nigeria, more than 120 Christians have been gunned down or killed with machetes over the past three weeks, but Breitbart was the only big media outlet to report on it…

    As Breitbart News alone reported among major news outlets, Fulani jihadists racked up a death toll of over 120 Christians over the past three weeks in central Nigeria, employing machetes and gunfire to slaughter men, women, and children, burning down over 140 houses, destroying property, and spreading terror.

    The New York Times did not place this story on the front page; in fact, they did not cover it at all. Apparently, when assessing “all the news that’s fit to print,” the massacre of African Christians did not measure up. The same can be said for the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, the Detroit Free Press, the LA Times, and every other major paper in the United States.

    And of course Breitbart is not exactly “mainstream” media.

    So why won’t anyone else report on this?

    And this isn’t the first time this has happened. Last June, twelve entire Christian villages in central Nigeria were completely wiped out…

    In only days, a dozen villages in Nigeria’s Plateau state were wiped out. The affected communities surround the city of Jos—known as the epicenter of Christianity in northern Nigeria’s Middle Belt.

    As many as 200 Christians had been killed, however, some residents fear the death toll may be even higher, as more bodies are yet to be recovered, while others were burned beyond recognition. On Sunday, 75 of the victims were buried in a mass grave.

    I’ll bet that most of you had not heard about that until now.

    On the other side of the world, 20 innocent people were slaughtered when Muslim radicals bombed a Roman Catholic cathedral in January…

    On January 27, Muslim extremists bombed a Roman Catholic cathedral on the Philippine island of Jolo, killing some 20 people and injuring dozens of others.

    Once again, this is yet another mass killing that was almost entirely ignored by the mainstream media.

    Is the anti-Christian bias among the mainstream media so strong that they can’t even bring themselves to report the basic facts to us?

    COLD, DAMP NATION RUNNING OUT OF WATER – Tim Blair

    Thanks to climate change, the British may become even less inclined to bathe than they are presently:

    England is set to run short of water within 25 years, the chief executive of the Environment Agency has warned.

    The country is facing the ‘‘jaws of death”, Sir James Bevan said, at the point where water demand from the country’s rising population surpasses the falling supply resulting from climate change.

    However, this could be avoided with ambitious action to cut people’s water use by a third …

    They won’t need much encouragement.

    “Around 25 years from now, where those [demand and supply] lines cross is known by some as the ‘jaws of death’ – the point at which we will not have enough water to supply our needs, unless we take action to change things,” Bevan told the Guardian.

    “We need water wastage to be as socially unacceptable as blowing smoke in the face of a baby or throwing your plastic bags into the sea,” he said.

    I prefer blowing smoke at the sea and throwing plastic bags at babies, but each to their own. Climate change will really have to land some punches if existing conditions are to alter:

    Annual precipitation averages for the entire UK are 133 days of rain or snow, totalling 885 millimetres (33.7 inches).

    They’ll be fine.

    UPDATE:

    By 2050, Canberra’s summers will start in early October and taper off midway through March unless radical efforts are made to combat the threat of climate change, the Australian Conservation Foundation has warned.
