  1. Armadillo

    state-run Anadolu news agency yesterday that the 37-year-old had opened fire on a relative ‘for family reasons’ and later shot at others trying to intervene.

    However, Utrecht Police and the Dutch Public Prosecution Service have today said that the investigation has so far not revealed any relationship between the main suspect and the victims

    That’s two very different narratives running there. Considering the Turkish PM just used the NZ mosque shootings as part of his re-Election campaign, I wonder what’s going on?

  2. Muddy

    It’s also often impossible to tell who someone knows or is related to (or who owes that person a favour), so discretion is sometimes the best choice, though the ego doesn’t normally agree.

    Goodnight all. Take care.

    Dutch tram ‘killer’ IS believed to have had ‘terrorist motive’ because of a letter found in suspect’s getaway car – as prosecutors say they’ve found no link between him and the victims

    Let’s keep in mind islamic jihad is just another form of traffic congestion.

    We know what’s going on. The establishment and their media minions smother until it’s out of the headlines. An Islamist slaughtered westerners yesterday and the media ran a fake story.

    Saying that reminds me of Lou Richards mentioning in commentary back in the black and white days, ‘They ought to give him the butcher’s send off’.
    Many year later I was advised by someone that knew nothing about Aussie Rules that Lou’s reference was a Depression era saying related to sundowners or other fuckwits of the day.
    Translated, it means to put a leg of mutton up his arse and sic the dogs onto him.

    Turkey and the entire Middle East is simply a part of an internal Muslim war that has been raging since the very beginning. The West should have stayed the hell out of it.

    Easy enough to say, as history is much more complicated than that.

    However, I do wonder when thinking about “Voice of America” and the influence it had on the Cold War. It seems to me that now the MSM have been proved to be totally fraudulent, people are now finding it difficult to know what to believe.

    The days of straight out propaganda were so much easier. Both sides had a “platform”. That is rapidly disappearing, and right before our eyes.

    Radiomonitor ads, copyright monitoring or you can engage them for whatever you want to monitor.
    Same goes for the internet, today they do it via software and looking for keywords.

    Just to change the subject … I’m sitting here with tears streaming down my face because after, what 30 years? of tinnitus and 24/7 electronic screeching in my ears, I inadvertently played this site … and I can’t hear the screeching anymore! Walk away and it comes back, sit down at the computer again and it slowly fades away to nothing.

    Interesting to see how Erdogans comments about the ANZACS plays out.

    Going for the record 4 posts in a row on the open thread
    On one team I played in we had a 3rd generation Ozzie 100% Chinese bloke from Darwin.
    He was a gun and I remember being surprised when one of the opposition called him a rice eating bastard.
    I hadn’t thought about him being Chinese for 2 seasons before that remark.
    He was hard as nails and didn’t give a fuck.
    He replied look at the scoreboard you (rude word).

    Exactly. Sick of being lectured to. Just do what the hell you get payed you to do. Organise so many rounds and semi finals, finals and a grand final. It’s not that fucking hard. Get some decent cheerleaders for the lads to look at. Serve full strength beer. Don’t charge an “arm and a leg for a pie with sauce” you cretins.

    I’m imagining Morose Giraffe merchandising opportunities. Maybe Mr. Rusty could whip us up some t-shirts.

  56. Muddy

    Morose Giraffe needs a catchphrase.
    How about “Everything is arky”?

  57. Armadillo

    If “Egg Boi” can raise $40k from the lefties with a “Go Fund Me” page, a “Morose Giraffe” banner shouldn’t be too much to ask for. Surely?

    I was thinking more gold cuff links. Or gold lapel pins. And a secret handshake.

  61. Armadillo

    It’s a “secret society”. Mums the word. No more from me.

  62. Muddy

    I think it best to keep things simple & go for a special language, using pitch & tone to differentiate the various meanings of the only word in the Morose Giraffe vocabulary: arky. Like ‘Hodor’ but ‘Arky’ instead. I see it spreading like syphilis at a Young Labor meeting.

  63. Muddy

    Arky. Arky-arky-arky. Arky.
    Aaaarky.
    Nuf sed?

  64. Armadillo

    Agreed. The gold cuff links or lapel pins featuring a “Morose Giraffe” might be a bit of a deadset giveaway for a “Secret Society”.

    In my defence, it was a vast improvement on your idea of “Morose Giraffe” T-Shirts.

    We should keep the secret handshake.

  65. Armadillo

    We still want the header banner though. Not much point being a “Secret Society” if no one knows you exist.

    It’s not the identity of the society you need to protect per se, but more the members within.

    The “Secret Handshake”.

    Without wanting to borrow from those morons in Hollywood, the ET “one finger” thingy was OK.

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=mGA_uH0-n28

    Not good enough for “The Cats” though. We should go “two fingers”. Like Girrafe horns (ossicones) meeting in unison. Like the “Peace Sign”, except touching fingers.

    It’s appropriate that those two finger are then reversed, so that the finger nails touch. In the time honoured sign of “up yours”.

    We can agree with each other in peace, but unless we disagree with each other, we are lost as human beings. We are then mere “bots”. Robotically repeating “talking points”. Like the left.

    Arguing intelligently with your friends or partner is a healthy part of life. As is arguing with yourself.

    Incidentally, how the hell does “Get Up” get 1 million + signatures on a petition? This is really dodgy shit.

    My theory is that this all goes back to Kevin 07 and the American electioneers and activists they brought out here to train Australian Labor. It’s been refined ever since. What is even more evident is the influence it has had on the Greens Party.

  73. Incidentally, how the hell does “Get Up” get 1 million + signatures on a petition? This is really dodgy shit.

    Ten thousand Get UP wankpuffins have signed 100 times each. Or a thousand GetUP wankpuffins have signed a Thousand times each (more likely).

    Or a hundred dedicated Get Up wankpuffins have signed ten thousand times each & now have RSI.

    Coz no way One Million voters (that’s One in every Fifteen enrolled voters) have in the space of 2 days logged on and signed a petition to remove a Senator most of them have never heard of.

    You would be lucky to get a million Australians to get off their arse to do anything, let alone to vote uncompulsorarily on an online petition. They should be held to account.

    This is why I favour Sinc (or anyone else) promoting a “Go Fund Me” page. Unless these bastards are hounded with lawyers and other professionals barking at them constantly, they won’t stop. They are too well funded, and too well resourced.

    We need a “Morose Giraffe” to start kicking the shit out of them.

    And I’m including all sides of politics here. Liberal, Labor and the Greens. Concerned Australians who are just fed up with this bullshit, and there are plenty of them. We have all had a gutful of these self entitled pricks. Most Australians couldn’t give a rats arse about them.

    I’m not talking about starting a political party. I’m talking about starting a movement.

    Start NO party. Stand NO candidates. NEVER DO THAT.

    Fund and support WORTHY candidates that agree with YOUR values. There ARE good people on all side of politics. Liberal, Labor, Nationals, Independents. Even Greens (maybe). It doesn’t matter.

    It’s the “Morse Giraffe” Movement. You get to decide where YOUR funds go to kick some idiot up the arse. Non-political party aligned. Target rich environment.

    The Cat environment is the perfect place to argue that out, without interference.

    The “Morse Giraffe” should be the friend of honest politicians, and the enemy of the worst (regardless of the party).

    We often discuss policy here. Support the policy, not the politics or party.

    It would be a refreshing change. Who knows. A few of the donors (if prompted) might find it attractive to have a say on policy, rather than throwing their eggs in the one basket.

    Has there been any news about the shooting at the send mosque?

    From last Friday
    BREAKING: Christchurch under siege as gunmen kill multiple people

    Second shooting at mosque in Linwood

    A second shooting happened at a mosque in the Linwood area of the city.

    One Friday prayer goer returned fire with a rifle or shotgun.

    Witnesses said they heard multiple gunshots around 1.45pm.

    A well known Muslim local chased the shooters and fired two shots at them as they sped off.

    He was heard telling police officers he was firing in “self defence”.

    “They were in a silver Subaru,” he told police.

    Mark Nichols, manager of Premium Tyres and Auto in Linwood, said he a gunman ran past his shop around 45 minutes ago.

    He heard five gunshots, and he believed the activity was centred around the nearby Linwood Masjid mosque.

    He saw two injured people carried on stretchers past his shop. Both appeared to be alive.

    “I seen a guy with a gun running up the road. He’s been firing about five shots, I think we heard,” Nichols said.

    Not sharing only makes sense in muslim terms, they will use it extensively to rally support for reprisals.

    On the topic of New Zealand gun laws, it is interesting to see how readily the New Zealand Prime Minister, desperately seeking an effective solution to a problem which had rarely ever presented itself in that country until last week, adopted John Howard’s approach, as being the most effective.

    No mucking about with the sort of Mickey Mouse “solutions” that Bonking Billy and the Liars routinely buy from the likes of their intellectual advisers, consultants and deep-“finkers”, Sarah Halfwit-Bung and Richard the III of the Brown Movement, for her.

    While on that topic, has any more been heard about the worshipper at the second (Linwood) mosque who successfully frightened off the terrorist when he opened fire at the perpetrator with a concealed hand-gun?

    Under what circumstances is it legal to walk the streets in NZ with a concealed hand-gun?

    Did this bloke meet those circumstances and have full legal permission to carry such a weapon on him whilst at the Mosque?

    If not, has he been charged with a firearms offence?

    Or is it only Christians and non-Muslims who are not allowed to arm themselves (now that one murderous atrocity has been committed by a non-Muslim, Trump-hating eco-fascist) but Muslims (who have committed some 34,725 such atrocities since 9/11 against non-Muslims) are allowed to do what Christians are not?

    Given the 34,725:1 terrorist atrocity imbalance, is the NZ Government planning to protect the majority of its citizens against this imbalance anytime soon, by delivering some 34,724 new hand-guns to Christian worshippers in Christchurch to carry concealed whilst in Church?

    That’d work.

    Surely!

    Why we all need Shorten in The Lodge. No, seriously

    Janet Albrechtsen


    It is often said that, in a democracy, voters get the government they deserve. Tinkering with that slightly, there is also a case to be made that, from time to time, we get the government we need.

    And in 2019 we both deserve and need a Shorten government.

    First, some background to this astonishing statement. Australia holds the world record for the longest period of economic expansion, edging close to 30 years now. Our economic indicators point up or down in all the right ­directions: living standards up, unemployment down, disposable incomes up, consumer spending up, too. Australian banks survived the GFC in good health. The country has grown rich from mostly decent policies, a healthy dose of happenstance, plentiful underground resources, and a blessed and booming local geography.

    There are warning signs, to be sure. Wages are stagnant and productivity has been flat. Young people find it hard to break into the big-city housing markets and there is rising underemployment too, meaning more people want additional working hours.But it seems that few people look at horizons and see dark clouds. No world wars for more than two generations, no depression for even longer, no millennial memory even of the last recession.

    The upshot of all this good fortune is that Australians have sunk to a level of complacency not seen before. How so? Because the Shorten government looks to be a shoo-in at the next election. And that is as it should be. We need a Shorten government.

    Just like the dalliance with Gough Whitlam and Labor in 1972, it’s time for Bill Shorten to be prime minister. Australians need a lived experience of a Shorten Labor government to fully understand the danger of some really bad ideas.

    There has been ample analysis of the poor economic outcomes that will arise from Shorten’s policies. From hitting up the rich to pay more in tax, to pushing up wages with no matching ­produc­tivity gains, bigger government, higher spending, reintroducing pattern bargaining and greater union power in the workplace, none of Shorten’s old-style Keynesian policies have made Labor any less popular. Which is saying something given that Shorten is about as personally popular as a close shave in a hipster cafe.

    We need to discover the hard way then that Shorten is more Gough Whitlam than Bob Hawke. Of course, the Opposition Leader lacks Whitlam’s vision, panache, authenticity and conviction. But there are parallels for voters to discover in due course.

    In his book The End of Certainty, my colleague Paul Kelly says Whitlam embodied “the 1960s grandest delusion — that continuous prosperity was Australia’s destiny and that politics was about the distribution of wealth, not its creation”.

    Just as post mortems agreed that economic management was the Whitlam government’s biggest weakness, the same conclusions will be reached about a Shorten government. Because, if Whitlam’s government had grown complacent on postwar economic growth, it is not hard to track, in Labor’s ill-conceived policies today, even worse complacency in Shorten’s Labor Party after three decades of expansion.

    It is a symptom of Labor’s complacency today that Shorten has forsaken the Hawke-Keating commitment to economic rationalism in favour of forging an unhealthy marriage with a trade union movement led by ACTU boss Sally McManus, as lunatic a left-wing class warrior as we will see for a long time. In fact, the contrast between the Hawke era, with the trio of Hawke-Paul Keating-Bill Kelty at the helm, and the Shorten-Chris Bowen-McManus trio about to take the helm is so sharp it hurts. The ACTU leader has a resemblance to a Soviet-style comrade, confecting facts to suit a stream of consciousness about class war, downtrodden workers and fat-cat bosses, repeating empty slogans about “evil America”, making claims to boost central power entirely divorced from economic impact.

    Whereas Kelty believed in consensus politics for the nation’s economic good, the ACTU believes in confrontational worker v boss paradigms and breaking the law to grab headlines. McManus’s claim to be a modern-day Mandela of the workplace is a cloak for the pursuit of greater power for union leaders, and through them entrenching the brute financial force of industry superannuation funds to secure changes that parliament won’t deliver.

    It is not hard to predict similar outcomes from a Shorten government as the country experienced under Whitlam. The harsh reality of that fine sounding “living wage” will be higher unemployment, higher deficits, a wages explosion and higher inflation. Labor’s 50 per cent renewable energy target by 2030 and higher energy ­prices will hit consumers, especially the poor, and inevitably will force businesses to relocate to countries with cheaper energy prices and lower wages. Labor’s ideological hatred of coal will create Australia’s very own Appalachian areas of poor, unemployed miners and disadvantaged communities.

    That all explains why we need a Shorten government. Maybe then Labor can return to sensible policies. It took the harsh realities of the Whitlam years for Hawke and Keating to turn the Labor Party in an entirely different economic direction. It learned the lessons of Whitlam so well it won four successive elections.

    In the same way, the Labor Party needs a Shorten government, in cahoots with McManus and her 1970s-style union movement, to realign itself with the immutable reality that economic growth depends on jobs and profits. Whereas Whitlam loathed labour and capital, and Shorten loathes capital, Labor might then return to the Hawke-Keating realisation that co-operation between labour and capital is a powerful force for economic and political good.

    A rotten Labor government may be just what the Liberal Party needs, too, forcing it to reflect on wasted years in government, factional fights, personality contests and only then discern what it stands for as political party. That means returning to core liberal values. But best of all, voters need a case of buyer’s remorse. A Shorten government, with its Whitlamesque flair for mixing big promises with economic cluelessness, is just the tonic for a new generation of voters to work out the high price of our complacency.

    Which is the point I guess. This NZ thing will, is having a number of ramifications:

    Muslims will have another justification which is gilding the lily and beside the point since the essential nature of islam is hegemony by violence or whatever other method is available. We have seen this already with Erdoğan declaring Australians who oppose islam will be sent home in coffins. More to the point the left will use this terrorist event in NZ to further promote islamophobia and censorship of any attempt to critique islam and censorship generally.

    Already the media has taken this up, comparing ardern to Churchill, advocating no discussion of the details of the NZ terrorist attack and the motives of tarrant which appear not to be of a right wing nature.

    I think ardern is wrong, very wrong. This tarrant creep should be eviscerated publically, his motives scrutinised in the context of a discussion about islam. But then I may as well wish for unicorns.

    If the Ferrari 488’s out of reach, try a 240km/h Superkart

    John Connolly
    Motoring Columnist

    You probably woke up this morning thinking “forget global colding, child poverty, gender equality, the needs of Africa, biodiversity loss and whether the Roosters and the Eagles can double up this year (yes to the Roosters), I want to buy a new Ferrari 488 Pista”.

    Well you can’t.

    Despite the luxury car market being in the toilet, you can buy a Fezzer Pista (as in “I’ve been Pista all night”) only if you own a Ferrari 488. It doesn’t matter if you have the $650k (drive away, no more to pay) in cash in the tin under the bed … the Fezzer factory won’t take your money.

    And not only that, you have to sign a form saying that when you want to flick it on, you can sell it only to Ferrari. Although right now, there are about 45 slightly used 488s up for sale. Asking prices range from $430k to $628k.

    But you’d have to think that economics will prevail and lots of supply will mean lower prices and perhaps less demand for the Pista.

    Talking of Fezzer, the factory has sent former F1 boss Maurizio Arrivabene to look for new career options after slotting technical chief Mattia Binotto in as team principal. Just before Chrissie (or Natale, as we say in Monza) Maurizio stole a line from the Trumpster, telling journalists that “The rumours about Mattia are fake news, put around to create instability in the team.” You know any time a CEO has to confirm he or she is safe in the job, they’re already halfway out the door.

    There were a few reasons Maurizio got punted. One was the large number of strategic mistakes the team made during last season that probably cost Fezzer the world championship. The other was, and I will try to put this nicely, allegedly he caused lots of conflict.

    As they say in Rome, teamwork makes the dream work. This will be a challenge this year as new driver, 21-year-old Chuck Leclerc, joins Seb Vettel in the red cars in the red suits near the new Red Lounge (a custom-built structure that spans 240sq m, immersing guests into Fezzer World) at the Albert Park raceway today.

    Chuckie is the F1 driver from central casting. He was born in Monaco, the preferred tax haven of the racing car and bike crowd, comes from a racing family and had the late, great Jules Bianchi as a godfather and mentor.

    Now, you know tomorrow’s first race of the season will be no different to every other F1 race for the last five seasons: a procession.

    If you really love motor racing, you should have been at the world’s only combined racetrack and waste management facility, or tip, Sydney Motorsport Park, last weekend, for the Festival of Sports Cars. The highlight was the first running of the Sydney 300, which had 40 cars, more than 80 drivers and a weird assortment of pit persons. But the real action was serious competition in the warm-up races that included nine million Nissan Pulsars, about eight million Hyundai Excels, 20 temporary Australians in Superkarts and 15 Alfas (most of which finished).

    No, they didn’t all race together. There were separate races, except for some real enthusiasts like Brad Connelly and Ian Joyce, who finished off their divisional races, jumped back into their hot and sweaty cars and went out for 2½ hours of more fun.

    Politicians, church leaders and do-gooders do rabbit on about community. But most of us live in a cocoon of comfort where the next-door neighbour could be running a meth lab or porn studio for all we know.

    Grassroots motor racing is a real community. They even accept old Alfa drivers. Competitors on the track help each other in the pits. The weekend featured a large number of volunteers, who give their time so the rest of us could race, and some super Australian Racing Drivers Club officials.

    Most of the cars are cheap to build and cheap to race. For example, the Australian Pulsar Racing Association is a controlled, one- make category based on the Nissan Pulsars built between 1990 and 2000. APRA chose Pulsar because they’re cheap (you can build a competitive race car for about $10k), relatively fast and most importantly, ‘‘they don’t look and sound like hairdresser cars’’.

    “Hairdresser cars” is a direct occupation-based discriminatory slur at the competing class, the Hyundai Excel, which Pulsar drivers believe is the transport mode most favoured by Korean coiffeurs and coiffeuses.

    On the other hand, Superkarts are driven by non-hairdressers who think motorbike racing is for wussies. Superkarts race on full length car racing tracks, can hit 240km/h down the straight and, I am told, are faster on most circuits than V8 Supercars. Naturally, the drivers are not strapped into the kart, which sits about one millimetre off the ground, has a front and a back but no sides and goes at roughly the speed of sound.

    Anyway, you’re interested (or bored) in the results from the big one and why the old master, Mr Motor Racing, the King of Kensi, the Goya of Glenelg, Michael McMichael, whose track budget always includes Coopers Jailhouse Juice IPA, Margan’s Ripasso, Penfolds Club port, banana chairs, the best selling novel, Mechanics for Dummies, and a left-handed wrench, wasn’t there? Short answer: he had gout.

    And who better to step in than the Wizard of Wakefield, the owner of raceawaytracktime.com.au, Phil Alexander.

    Phil’s wife Karen is a well-known sculptor who says she is prepared to take it up to the King of Kensi and move to sculpting the human form. Anyway, the overall winners were Todd Herring and Andy Harris in an MX-5. Your WART drivers got a lucky podium in Division E behind two Beemers.

    Since receiving a message from Guildford police Monday night, Farrow (pictured above, right) has been doxxed, her children and husband have been sexually and violently threatened and she has been called names like “p*ssy” and “c*nt.” Enemies siding with the activist, Susie Green, have also signed up her and her husband for porn accounts.

    Australian Naval Bravery Ignored

    By Top Ender (as per Hobart Mercury today)

    Incompetence, inertia and injustice mar the fighting record of our World War II Navy, and our government has refused to correct this, dispute using the term “conspicuous bravery” in their handling of the Teddy Sheean case: the very wording the Department of Defence criteria for the Victoria Cross demands.

    Australian Navy honours were decided by Britain, while Army and RAAF had theirs processed in Canberra. Despite enormous bravery in a multitude of actions, the Navy has never received a Victoria Cross.

    There are numerous examples of wrong decisions, lack of action, and mistakes.

    For example, in 1942 the captains of the cruiser HMAS Perth and USS Houston took their ships into action against a superior Japanese force. They both died fighting, as did most of their ships’ companies. The USA gave their hero, Captain Albert Rooks, America’s highest honour, the Medal of Honor, just a few months later. But our Captain Hec Waller was not to be so distinguished. The paperwork was mishandled. Australia did nothing for four years, until someone noticed, and then gave him not even a medal, but rather a Mention in Despatches, a badge to be affixed to a medal.

    That injustice continues today. Waller could be given a much higher honour, but nothing has been done. It should be the Victoria Cross – his action paralleled that of Rooks.

    In another epic sea fight in 1942, the fighting commander of HMAS Yarra, Robert Rankin, died in action with most of his men, defending a small convoy against a massive Japanese force. Again incompetence ruled, and as a result no decoration at all has ever been given him or his sailors. Leading Seaman Ron Taylor, bravely refusing to leave his gun, was one of those on board who should have been given the VC, as should Rankin. But he remains unhonoured. The paperwork was never processed.

    No-one in government cares enough to fix this.

    Teddy Sheean on HMAS Armidale was given one of the Mention in Despatches – a badge – for refusing to abandon his gun while Japanese aircraft swarmed the ship. He should have been given a Victoria Cross.

    Sheean’s bravery was the equivalent, or surpasses, many other cases of the VC. Indeed, this is readily admitted today. The Victoria Cross for Australia’s criteria is:

    The Victoria Cross for Australia is the pre-eminent award for acts of bravery in wartime and Australia’s highest honour, and
    The Victoria Cross for Australia is awarded to a person who, in the presence of the enemy, displays the most conspicuous gallantry, or daring or pre-eminent act of valour or self-sacrifice or extreme devotion to duty.

    Notably, the Chief of Navy uses this phrase: “Conspicuous gallantry” in recent correspondence. “I acknowledge the conspicuous gallantry and self-sacrifice in the actions of Sheean.” The previous Tribunal used it, oddly enough while contradicting themselves: “The tribunal concluded that Sheean’s actions displayed conspicuous gallantry but did not reach the particularly high standard required for recommendation for a VC,” the report said.”

    Sheean’s case is the stuff of Boys’ Own adventure tales. The corvette HMAS Armidale was attacked south of Timor by Japanese bombers with torpedoes, bombs and with strafing. Hit and severely damaged, she began sinking, and the “Abandon Ship” order was given. Sheean, on the aft Oerlikon gun, obeyed the order, but when the Japanese began strafing his shipmates in the water, although wounded, he went back to his gun and resumed firing. He continued shooting even as the ship sank underneath him.

    Naval orders precluded making a recommendation for what type of posthumous decoration could be given – another difference to the other forces. There were only two: a Mention in Despatches, and the Victoria Cross. But RAN procedures dictated application had to be made through the Admiralty in London. Britain was fighting for its survival at the end of 1942: it was being starved by submarine warfare, and relentlessly bombed by the German air force. The naval offices were beset by the necessity to arrange convoys; fight the Germans, find enough men for its huge forces, and survive the attacks on themselves and their infrastructure. The Royal Navy had likely heard little of Armidale, and Timor was not in their part of the world. Processing the first Victoria Cross for the Australian Navy was probably too onerous.

    Inquiry has followed inquiry. Statements have been made in Parliament. But the general finding has been that this was the system at the time, so we should not rectify the wrongs of the past.

    Navy has indeed named six submarines after its heroes – the first vessels ever to be so honoured. That in itself was an overdue practise – the USA has for decades named its ships after its bravest. So too has the RAN’s parent navy – HMS Nelson for example, was built after WWI.

    But in Australia there is massive inertia about bucking the system. Even when injustice is found, nothing has been done to remedy it. Lieutenant Commander Robert Rankin took HMAS Yarra into action in water north of Australia to defend his convoy – it was a “turn and face” moment which paralleled another action across the other side of the world. As the sole escort for a convoy making its way across the Atlantic, HMS Jervis Bay defended her convoy to the end as the sole warship present, and her Captain Fogarty Fegan was quite rightly given the VC. But in the same war when Rankin – by trade a naval surveyor – charged the many Japanese warships bearing down on his charges, the paperwork was never processed, and he and his men never have been honoured. An inquiry made no difference. Not one medal was given.

    A new Inquiry is sitting at the end of March, due mainly to the perseverance of a few dedicated Tasmanians. Guy Barnett, a minister in the present State government, has been tireless in his efforts over the years to have one of the bravest Tasmanians ever – Teddy Sheean – properly recognised. By his side has been Garry Ivory, a nephew of Sheean’s, and now in failing health. The two of them have never given up.

    A general theme of previous inquiries has been that if no maladministration or mistakes were made then the decisions of yesteryear should stand. But it seems that they have missed the elephant in the room. The massive maladministration was to treat the Navy differently from the other two forces. If the system in use in World War II was the right one, then why was it changed post-war so decisions for honours were made in Australia? And if extreme bravery in the face of the enemy has characterised so many Australian naval actions, why has a Victoria Cross never been awarded to one of its members? Sheean’s “conspicuous gallantry” should be rewarded with the Victoria Cross for Australia.

    Award-Winning Physicist: Science Supports the Existence of God; Atheism Defies the Scientific Method

    The far Left — which tells us that not all women have vaginas and cow farts are going to destroy a planet which previously withstood, well, everything — perpetually labels conservatives as anti-science (here, here, here, and here).

    Also anti-science: religion.

    They have a point concerning the latter, to a degree: religion transcends science.

    But are they wholly at odds? Not so far as it concerns the existence of God.

    That’s according to his manifesto, which is all anyone can conclude anything from.
    Taking away the manifesto and claiming he is a right wing extremist is inciting violence toward people who believe in democracy, individualism, and capitalism.
    The left wing authorities have shown that they are using this mass murder to pin it on right wing people.
    This is an utter disgrace.
    Once the manifesto has been outlawed they change the political association of the killer.

    Brilliant summation of the prosecution’s case in the Pell Affair at Quadrant:

    The prosecution’s case was that following Mass at the Cathedral, Archbishop Pell had found two boys in the sacristy drinking altar wine, and had forced them to give him oral sex. The “second victim,” who died before the case came to trial, had said specifically that nothing of the sort ever took place. The entire case against Cardinal Pell was the testimony, more than twenty years after the alleged events, of a single person whose credibility was not permitted to be challenged in court.

    The prosecution did not dispute that after Mass Archbishop Pell had been at the door of the Cathedral greeting parishioners as they left, or that after this, he had been in the company of several other people until he left for another function.

    The only time in which the alleged offences could have occurred were in the period after the final blessing, until the exit procession arrived at the main doors.

    In summary, this is what the prosecution claimed on the basis of the word of a single, uncorroborated witness:

    As the procession was forming to leave, two choir boys absconded, unnoticed by anyone at the time or later. At about the same time, the Archbishop, celebrating in his Cathedral for one of the first times, also absconded, also unnoticed by anyone else in the procession, or the hundreds of other people in the Cathedral. The boys returned to the busiest room in the Cathedral at that time, the sacristy, where they found some altar wine which they began to drink, even though altar wine is never left there unattended.

    According to the alleged victim, neither the sacristan nor any of the other altar servers or helpers, who would normally be constantly in and out of that room at the time, were anywhere to be seen. Archbishop Pell entered the room, unseen by anyone, and demanded the boys give him oral sex.

    It was not disputed that he was wearing his eucharistic vestments. For a pontifical high Mass, celebrated by an Archbishop at the main Mass on Sunday in his own cathedral, these customarily consist of a close fitting cassock with thirty-nine buttons from top to bottom, a cincture – a wide band around the waist of the cassock, an alb, a long white robe tied with a rope or cord (both cassock and alb are full-length garments, reaching from neck to floor), and over these a dalmatic and a chasuble, both heavy brocade garments reaching to the knees.

    Evidence given by the prosecution’s single witness was that these garments were pushed aside. They cannot be pushed aside. It is just possible that they could be lifted enough to give access to everyday clothes underneath, and that these could then be opened, but the cassock, alb, dalmatic and chasuble would need to be held with one hand the entire time. It would tight and uncomfortable, and movement would be almost impossible. This would still be the case even if Pell were wearing only an alb, stole and chasuble over his street clothes, as some parish clergy do.

    The prosecutions’ case is that having taken a few minutes to lift these tight, heavy garments and open his normal clothes underneath, the Archbishop, with very limited movement and one free hand, chased the two boys around the sacristy, unnoticed by the large number of people moving between that room and the sanctuary, forcing each of the boys to give him oral sex.

    He then masturbated to completion, rearranged his garments, walked back through the Cathedral and re-joined the procession before it arrived at the Cathedral door, again without anyone noticing, while the two boys re-joined the choir, also without anyone noticing either that they were back or that they had been gone.

    All of this, according to the prosecution, from the time the procession left the sanctuary to the time it arrived at the door, about one hundred metres distance, took place in about five minutes. In reality (I have been to mass at that Cathedral) about three minutes. Three minutes!

    The story is manifestly ludicrous. It is impossible, simply silly.

    But look over there, Keli Lane. ABC’s Exposed and RMIT’s Innocence Initiative will never take a look at the glaring, obvious absurdity which is the Pell accusation.

  215. Muslims have invaded Europe over 900 times in the last 1400 years, and continue to aggressively replace and enslave other population, see Nigeria for more information.

    Christians have invaded Asia (and Africa, and America, and Australia) over 900 times in the last 1400 years.
    When they do it, they tend to use force of arms.

    That statement, whilst correct, is about as relevant as your dog whistling.

    I sent a letter to me local Lib Federal rep asking why that arse-wipe of a Prime Minister keeps calling it right wing extremism.
    I hope you have all demanded the same of yours.

    However, so far I have received no reply, so some of you reckon it may be a bit long, because they lose interest if it is more than a page.
    I will write again.
    It is so incredibly important that this bullshit be called out.
    The left call it right wing, and they own the media world wide.
    But you don’t need gutless Liberal party PM’s constantly mouthing the same bullshit.

    Are you telling me Morrison didn’t read the manifesto?
    C’mon.
    The guy is UN globalist through and through.
    As stated here on the cat before anywhere.
    We knew he was a dud while the morons at Sky thought he was going to be their saviour.

    Australia is in a really bad place now.
    Based on the lies of people like SNIFFY.
    You are traitorous scum , SNIFFY.
    So is Sco Mo.

    Okay numbers

    how is that a dog whistle, are you claiming that by stating facts I am encouraging violence against muslims?

    is it true or not true that muslims have invaded Europe over 900 times in the last 1400 years

    Is it true or not true that muslims have and continue to attack and kill peaceful Nigerian Christians and that Boko Haram enslaved Christian school girls?

    Actually this is how it works, isn’t it numbers?

    any criticism of muslims is hate speech and an incitement to violence but the reverse is never true

    A text book dog-whistle

    See, merely stating historical facts is now construed, for political ends, a ‘dog whistle’.

    what an idiot, can’t even drive his mouse properly. oh look fake compassion man gets his daily talking points from Daily Debunker. who is obsessed with qanon. LOL LOL

  220. how is that a dog whistle, are you claiming that by stating facts I am encouraging violence against muslims?

    That doesn’t make sense, but I think you mean that by “stating facts” I said you were dog whistling.
    You’re absolutely correct, especially on this platform, which is an extremists’ holdout.

    From CL’s link above. SloMo doubles down on the stupid, specifically linking “right-wing” with “white supremacy”.

    “Australia has denounced, New Zealand has denounced, absolutely and completely, the act of extremist right-wing terrorism, white supremacist terrorism that we saw in New Zealand,” Mr Morrison said.

    So SloMo leads a political party that claims to be more white supremacist than the Labor Party.

  222. what an idiot, can’t even drive his mouse properly.

    Now you’ve got your angries out, deal with the substance of the post – if you can….

    how is that a dog whistle, are you claiming that by stating facts I am encouraging violence against muslims?

    you see stupid people assume that everyone thinks like they do, so stupid fake compassion man assumes everyone is influenced by what they read and likely to take action, just like he is influenced by his daily talking points on Daily Debunker and races here to share his wondrous insights

    It’s absolutely clear that the pogroms currently being undertaken by Muslims in North and sub-Saharan African, South Philippines, and elsewhere, are being aided and abetted by Leftists.

  225. Ƶĩppʯ (ȊꞪꞨV)

    which is an extremists’ holdout.

    low taxes and small government is now an extremist position, just wow. methinks fake compassion man is stuck in a extreme left echo chamber
