    Wasn’t the NRA interview with Ashby a set up by Aljazeera?
    Secretly recorded and now being drip fed to embarrass PHON.
    No involvement by NRA as I understand it.

    If these are the new rules, two can play at that. First, you actually have to take the field.

    Of course ALP would put One Nation last or near last, One Nation are conservatives and would not likely vote for ALP anyhow, it is a no-brainer.

    ??

    Around here the Labor voters have great sympathy for One Nation.

    “Of course the academics who will be able to leave are mostly the successful ones. It will be a brain drain.”
    ….

    Of course in their world sucking off the taxpayers teat by either being completely useless or indeed a detriment to the west, is considered success.

    Al Jazeera’s investigation, which will air tonight on the ABC, involved setting up a fake gun lobby group called Gun Rights Australia headed by a fake gun rights advocate, Rodger Muller.

    One Nation was invited by Rodger Muller, who has now been outed as a foreign agent working for Al Jazeera, to meet with the NRA, American business leaders and attend the Congressional Sportsman’s Dinner.

    Footage from inside the meetings, broadcast overnight as part of an Al Jazeera investigation, shows the pair seeking political donations and discussing political strategies to undermine Australia’s gun restrictions.

    In a statement, Mr Ashby has accused Al Jazeera of being “a state-owned propaganda arm of the Qatari Government that supports Islamic extremist groups and are not a legitimate media organisation”.

    It was plainly a failed setup. So the real questions are WTF is Al Jazeera, the state broadcaster of Qatar, doing interfering in Australian politics and why is the ABC cooperating with them to do so?

    A nice wangle if you can get it

    If they think that exposing their oh so important academic studies, especially the big brother one, to the gaze of the gen pop, is beneficial to their cause, they should think again.

    I had my doubts about this Jessica Williams person who is putting a convenient propaganda face to WA’s attempt to establish “safety zones” around abortion clinics. (With help from the ABC).

    Here she is in 2017 (video included), angry about three kittens being euthanised by vets.

    THREE kittens pulled from an underground drain in a delicate rescue operation in Perth’s east have died.

    The kittens were found three metres underground, trapped with barely any food or water for almost a week.

    It took an army of people, and heavy machinery, a few hours to free the animals but the happiness was short-lived.

    One of the kittens died soon after the rescue, while the other two had to be put down.

    Nearby residents say they are angry the City of Belmont did not act sooner to save the trapped kittens.

    Jessica Williams told Seven News if the City had responded to her pleas for help last week, the kittens might still be alive.

    “I don’t know what words can actually encompass the absolute and anger and devastation because this is exactly what we were trying to keep from happening,” Ms Williams said.

    “Their negligence and inhibiting our desperate pleas for help has obviously made what could have been a one or two-day rescue become a three or four-day rescue … we don’t know if it could have made a difference with the kittens but it’s very easy to assume it would have.”

    Fresh from her obsessive and ongoing legislative green-lighting of abortion on demand and killing old people, Annastacia Palaszczuk is today proposing new laws to deal with social media that facilitate violence and extremism. Isn’t it amazing how these degenerates hide in plain sight?

  13. Struth:

    I find the study of the sickness of the left wing mind.
    It centres around the need to be governed, to be controlled and to control.

    I find the best way to deal with controlling type personalities is to realise they need to control others because they cannot control their own chaotic thought processes.
    Once you’ve worked that out, they’re easy to understand.

    I see the cowards at Cambridge School of Divinity have stated the reason why they withdrew the invitation to Dr Jordan B Peterson was because of the t-shirt which said “I’m a proud islamaphobe listitng why: against paedophilia, rape, wife-beating, homophobia, misogyny, violence against women and children, funding terror attack, killing apostates, taqqiya, anti-sematism, praying for violence, Forced Female Genital Murtilation, praying for the destruction of Israel, racism, segregation of women, and something at the end which I can’t read — does anyone have the full wording of what is on that t-shirt.

    So the School of Divinity at Cambridge University must therefore be in favour or supportive of: paedophilia, rape, wife-beating, homophobia, misogyny, violence against women and children, funding terror attack, killing apostates, taqqiya, anti-sematism, praying for violence, Forced Female Genital Murtilation, praying for the destruction of Israel, racism, segregation of women, is that how it works?

    Response to the Princeton Theological Seminary Slavery Audit

    The Association of Black Seminarians, receives the confession articulated in the “Lessons, Implications, and Recommendations” section of the report (49-53), which calls the Seminary’s involvement with slavery sin. The ABS welcomes the repentance declared, not just of slavery, but of Whiteness (white supremacy, white superiority, and white normativity). The ABS affirms the call for ongoing confession and atonement, justice-making and reconciling, and the repudiation of the practice of drawing people together inside a “white Christian vision” (52).

    1. Appendix B of the report ascertains that slavery accounts for no less than 15% of the Seminary’s income and as much as 30-40% of the Seminary’s revenues during this period. It was during this time that the Seminary’s endowment was established. We argue that the 15-30 or 40% ratios apply to the current endowment of Princeton Theological Seminary. In other words, 15-40% of the Seminary’s endowed wealth was sourced in the labor of enslaved Africans in America and the economic activity derived from that stolen labor.

    2. The ABS calls for no less than 15% of the current endowment to be allocated for redressing this historical injustice by January 1, 2020. The proceeds of these earmarked funds would be used annually to provide:

    a. Full tuition, fees, room and board grants for all admitted African American students.
    b. Ten full tuition, fees, room and board grants for admitted Liberian students, in light of this institution’s documented complicity in the creation of that nation and its ongoing exploitation by American interests (15-27).
    c. Ten full tuition, fees, room and board grants for admitted students from other West African countries from the Senegal to the Congo, the original lands of those enslaved.
    d. Student loan forgiveness for all African American alumni (not just Presbyterians).
    e. Tuition grants for all admitted Black ThM students.
    f. An endowed Black Church Studies (BCS) program with:
    i. A full-time tenured chair seated on the President’s Executive Committee.
    ii. A full-time executive director to oversee the programming and fund-raising components of the program.
    iii. A full-time executive assistant.
    iv. A distinguished visiting scholar each academic year to teach courses on African American Christianity, or the Church in the African Diaspora.ii
    v. A Theodore Sedgwick Wright Black Church Studies Center in the Library.
    vi. A full-time curator for the BCS Center.
    vii. Annual Lecture series (Geddes Hanson, Prathia Hall, MLK)
    viii. Black Student Fellowships for Academic Development and Research (Attending academic conferences as well as specific research projects.)

    3. Additionally, we call on Princeton Theological Seminary to:

    a. Pursue partnerships with Historically Black Colleges, Universities and Seminaries with Presbyterian affiliations (Lincoln, Stillman, Johnson C. Smith).

    b. Pursue partnerships with accredited West African Universities and Seminaries with Presbyterian affiliations (Liberia Baptist Theological Seminary: Trinity Theological Seminary, Legon, Ghana and others).

    c. Address the mixed legacy of those for whom major buildings are named by hyphenating those structure names with distinguished African American or pro-equality alumni (Theodore Sedgwick Wright, Francis Grimke, Elijah Lovejoy, Prathia Hall, Betsey Stockton, Renita Weems, and others).

    d. Continue its efforts to increase African American faculty and administration.

    e. Continue its efforts to decenter the curriculum from its Eurocentric bias.

    By so doing, Princeton Theological Seminary would thereby adopt best practices from the theological academy while ameliorating the wound created by a previous generation’s sin. This act of restorative justice will move American theological education away from its imperialistic, Eurocentric impulses towards a holistic, globally responsible posture. For this institution to act on its imagination of a community on a path towards ethnic and racial healing would be an act of constructive practical theology. As a flagship of the PCUSA, the seminary would help the denomination occupy high moral ground as it wrestles with the need to diversify its outreach. Princeton Theological Seminary would take a major step on the path of becoming a reflection of the body of Christ in this nation and demonstrate global leadership in creating the beloved community–perhaps creating in this local expression the covenant community to which it aspires.

    I find the best way to deal with controlling type personalities is to realise they need to control others because they cannot control their own chaotic thought processes.

    The definition of “clean your room”.

    Most are projecting or battling deep seated feelings of inadequacy.
    Often well deserved.
    Its avoidance, as long as they can “Mrs Jellyby” onto a cause rather than fix their own mess.

    https://incommunion.org/2006/02/19/mrs-jellyby-and-the-domination-of-causes/

    Among the many memorable characters populating Charles Dickens’s novel Bleak House is the formidable Mrs. Jellyby, a woman living in London who resolutely devotes every waking hour to a project in Africa that she refers to as the “Borrioboola-Gha venture.” Her goal is the resettlement of impoverished Britons among African natives, all of whom will support themselves through coffee growing. Mrs. Jellyby is convinced that no other undertaking in life is so worthwhile or would solve so many social problems, in both Africa and England, at a stroke.
    ..
    In the book’s postscript, we learn that the Borrioboola-Gha project failed after the local king sold the project’s volunteers into slavery in order to buy rum. Far from being deterred by this grim outcome, Mrs. Jellyby quickly finds another cause to occupy her time, “a mission with more correspondence than the old one,” thus providing new vistas for a permanent campaigner.


    I wonder if the Mrs. Jellybys of this world, dedicated in theory to compassion as the bearers of utopian visions, are not at a deeper level driven by rage with those around them, perhaps especially their own families? By taking up a virtuous cause, they can punish their spouses, children and relatives with a clear conscience. After all, they are doing something entirely noble, so much more important than caring for the people they live with or are related to. Their impatience and neglect or abandonment of others around them is a necessary, even God-endorsed price of serving a higher purpose.

    BLF president Andile Mngxitama charged in a statement that the cyclone, which hit Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi, was “not a natural disaster but a direct consequence of the white, Western system of ecological assault for profits”.

    Are you sure it wasn’t caused by the vegetation clearing, overgrazing, and massive burning practices of indigenous people around the world?

    Oh wait, they don’t have any cash do they?

    The film, Us, is on track to make history as the biggest horror film about a black family, written and directed by a black man with a mostly black cast.

    To be fair…

    ‘Us’ Review: Intense Warning About the Horrors of Socialism (21 Mar)

    Writer-director-producer Jordan Peele is a storyteller with ambitions, ideas, something to say, and for that reason the last 20 or so minutes lose their intensity in all the explaining.

    Over-explaining, actually, isn’t altogether a bad thing for those of us eager to see a mainstream film that is not only unreservedly pro-American, but fiercely anti-socialist.

    The Wilson’s are terrorized by their own doppelgangers: crude, malevolent, angry, bitter doubles who are, without question, Peele’s stand-ins for socialists. He’s even a bit on-the-nose by dressing them all in … red.

    From out of nowhere they show up to organize, terrorize, menace, bully, and destroy what everyone else has, what everyone else worked for — and I’m talking about good and decent people who have done nothing to deserve this.

    Sounds a bit like Black Panther, where lefties liked it because it was about skin colour and righties liked it because the hero was a black Trump.

    If I recall Nikki Gemmel didn’t seem to like her mother very much and wrote interminably about it in angst-filled columns of drivel and self-flagellation for the fact that her mother had died and they hadn’t properly reconciled or some such — I don’t read her bad typing that information was provided by the Sunbather who does read her stuff only to say at the end of it — what a pathetic loon

    Our brilliant left-wing journalists …
    Here’s Fairfax girlie Alexandra Smith on 6 March: Daley’s stadium masterstroke.

    As an uneventful election campaign rumbled on, Daley needed to land a new blow, which he chose to deliver face-to-face in a live radio interview with Alan Jones.

    In a premeditated strike, Daley sat in the studio with the shock jock and told Jones that he and the other trustees on the powerful SCG Trust would be sacked if he becomes premier.

    It was a strategic masterstroke.

    Again to be fair, Pope Francis has been busy sending out press releases last few days.

    Pope: Water Shortage One of the ‘Inevitable Consequences of Climate Change’ (25 Mar)

    I haven’t seen any signs lately that the oceans are drying up.

    Analysis: ‘The Unsustainable Papacy’ – Pope Francis ‘surrounded himself with Soros greenie globalists’ – ‘Papal eco conferences, resembled a Socialist Who’s Who’ (25 Mar)

    New book out on Francis and the people he’s been getting in on global warming, like Wadhams, Schellnhuber and Naomi Klein, who is one of the leftiest wymminses on the planet (who happens not to be a climate scientist either).

    I wish he’d stick to this sort of thing instead:

    Pope Francis Mourns African Christians Murdered for Their Faith (24 Mar)

    Pope Francis prayed publicly for the Christians massacred recently in Nigeria and Mali as the Vatican celebrated a day of remembrance for martyred missionaries Sunday.

    Seconded. He’d cut through much better if he didn’t push the socialism barrow so hard.

  35. Zatara

    BLF president Andile Mngxitama charged in a statement that the cyclone, which hit Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi, was “not a natural disaster but a direct consequence of the white, Western system of ecological assault for profits”.

    No need for all that. Just ask the Chairman of the Royal Bank of Nigeria for the cash he says he’s holding for me from my unknown auntie’s account. You’ll have to work out the ‘insurance and accounting fees’ with him yourself.

    On the Mrs. Jellybys of this world – they are Legion. One of the sad truths that Dickens explored is the effect these halfwitted zealots have on their children. Her poor little boy, made to ostentatiously give his pocket money to the cause, became parsimonious and dissatisfied.

    My other favourite from Bleak House is old Mr. Turveydrop. A true horror in parent form.

  39. Tom

    Today’s edition of Tucker Carlson Tonight on the Mueller conspiracy is a collectors item: he’s the best political writer in American cable TV and his opening monologue (running about 17 minutes) is a cracker. Stay tuned for the interview with Don Trump junior and a savage analysis by left-wing investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald, who runs The Intercept website (at about the 31-minute mark). And hang around for Mark Steyn’s brilliant satire at around 55m50s.

    Wesfarmers puts a forty percent premium on Lynas, the rare earths company.

    John – GGG has an update out today. Technical but they will nuke Lynas once they get going (if they get going*).

    They can cheaply produce a 20%+ REO concentrate at the mine and ship it to China to be refined. Capital cost low because it’s all open pit and easy to concentrate, now that they’ve worked out how.

    The known deposit contains over 10 million tonnes of REO, enough to run the entire planet for about a century.

    Lynas will be screwed because they have a messy and expensive process flowsheet, and for making the mistake of building their refinery in a dodgy country, ok, dodgier country.

    (* ie if the globule warming scam doesn’t collapse first.)

    It was a strategic masterstroke.

    Daley’s campaign was a slow motion trainwreck. Any more “strategic masterstrokes” and labor would have ended up with about 13% of the vote.

    Question for other NSW Cats – is there a single labor lower house MP in NSW that anyone can even name off the top of their head (apart from your local MP if you live in a labor seat), let alone one who has any sort of cut through with voters whatsoever?

  52. John Constantine

    Wesfarmers used to have the fertiliser study project at Lynas’s Mt Weld project years ago, so aussie fertiliser, not the Malay rare earths plant may be the attraction.

    Australia has another phosphate deposit at Mt Weld in Western Australia that has been under on-going review for a similar development by Wesfarmers CSBP. It is remote (25 km south of Leonora but less than 100 km east of Murrin Murrin) and 260 million tonnes of the rock (particularly hard) contains about 18 per cent P as P2O5 a carbonatite deposit). (It is relevant to note that WMC produces 500 000 tonnes of sulfuric acid (required to produce phosphoric acid) at the Kalgoorlie smelter to its south.)

    Either build collection dams or desalination plants and you have plenty of water Calli.
    We haven’t built a dam here for what, half a century? Because greenies.
    Desalination uses baseload power: coal or nuke.
    No coal plants have been built here for almost half a century. Because greenies.
    No nuke plants have been built here. Because greenies.
    It irks me that greenies ululate about potable water shortages whilst opposing the supply of potable water. And on top of everything there’s no data saying rainfall will be reduced by global warming if or when we get any.

  57. Mother Lode

    Daley sat in the studio with the shock jock and told (Alan) Jones that he and the other trustees on the powerful

    These people seem to use the word shock jock as a label to mean ‘bad’.

    Jones is no shock jock. He doesn’t titillate his audience with brazenness they know they couldn’t achieve, doesn’t strive to humilate or denigrate their personal lives, features of habits, is not some iconoclast or any such thing.

    He has an audience who think the same way as him and gives them a space on radio where they can voice their opinions while the rest of the media ignores them as borderline morons.

    People like Alexandra Smith are only shocked to hear heterodox opinion spoken out loud: such things as abortion being a bad thing (*shock!*) or closing down our industries at the behest of hippies (*horror!*) is something should might never have expected to hear in her life.

    Kyle Sandilands is more of a shock jock if you need one, although truly is just a rather too corpulent boorish oaf.

    I suspect Kate Washington (my local member) might be a go-er for Labor, Percy. She was the only one to pick up a seat for them back in the Landslide.

    I just had to re-visit Bleak House. The chapter introducing Mrs. Jellyby is titled “Telescopic Philanthropy”, a reference to the fact that the idiotic woman is so focussed on doing good deeds for people she has never met that she is oblivious to the disorder and misery in her own household.

    On Mr Turveydrop, I’ll leave it to that Master Wordsmith, Dickens:

    He was a fat old gentleman with a false complexion, false teeth, false whiskers, and a wig.

    Lots of acid used by the nickel guys in WA goldfields area. There’re a number of cobalt players who will probably be eyeing that same acid. Phosphoric acid produced in insanely remote Laverton probably isn’t a high value product. And an ammonia plant would be awesomely uneconomic if built there to make MAP or DAP.

    ‘It was a strategic masterstroke.’

    Ten’s Catalina Florez was banging on before the election in much the same way about Labor’s overall focus on the Allianz stadium and how its ‘clever’ slogan – something about schools and hospitals before stadiums – had put the Coalition o the back foot. I thought that I was fairly shabby reporting, but then Ten News is usually just one big op ed.

    I’ve since seen no evidence that the stadium issue had any real impact at all on the election outcome, unless you somehow count the 1.7% swing to Labor in Heffron, where the stadium is located.

    Media chiefs face jail over George Pell contempt of court claims

    Thirty-six journalists, editors and media organisations have been threatened with jail or fines over contempt relating to alleged breaches of the George Pell suppression order.

    Radio host Ray Hadley and editors and editors-in-chief including Michael Stutchbury of The Australian Financial Review, Michael Bachelard of The Age, Damon Johnston of the Herald Sun and Ben English of The Daily Telegraph are among those summonsed to appear before the Victorian Supreme Court next month for a directions hearing.

    Pell’s trial for child sexual abuse at Melbourne’s St Patrick’s Cathedral and the guilty verdict were suppressed on the grounds it would prejudice a subsequent trial which did not proceed.

    However more than 140 international news reports were published internationally within 24 hours of the guilty verdict being handed down last December.

    The Supreme Court today released the summons on originating motion which lists 36 respondents including Nationwide News Pty Ltd, which publishes The Australian, Fairfax Media, Mamamia, Macquarie Media and Nine Entertainment.

    Interesting ironical connection. U-862 sat at the entrance to the Derwent in 1944, waiting for prey. Through her periscope she had a ship coming towards her. Then sighted an aircraft, and thinking she was being hunted, dived for the seabed. The aircraft was a furphy; the freighter chugged past, and U-862 went on to sink some other ships off the Australian coast, before ending up in Japan at the end of the war.

    That is fascinating stuff, Top Ender thanks for posting that (from a lurker who very occasionally comments).

    Not sure whether you have finalised your Berlin itinerary as yet. I was there in 2013 and 2014 and enjoyed the Topography of Terror exhibition on the SS. A great place is the German Resistance Museum in the Bendlerblock -where it all happned. Another place I went to was the Science and Technology museum in Berlin (Trebbiner Strasse). That was a fascinating place, they are supposed to be restoring a Fokke-Wulf Condor bomber, however I doubt that it is finished or displayed as yet. Well worth a visit, though.

    You are being told that Western culture is delusional and ridiculous nonsense and that culturally Australia was never ‘white’ nor ‘Christian’, and a moment later you will be told that Western culture and Australia was patriarchal, racist, religiously bigoted, and so on. You patrimony is constantly denigrated by the Left but you are then made to believe that no defense is necessary because what you think you are defending is only imagined.

    As a recent policy brief from the Danish Institute for International Studies explained, the expanded role of Greenland in China’s economic interests in the Arctic should prompt not only greater scrutiny from the governments of both Greenland and Denmark, but also discussions between the two governments about which types of foreign investment fall under what areas of the 2009 Self-Rule agreement. Climate change has made Greenland an emerging actor for foreign mining interests, and Chinese firms have wasted little time in putting themselves at the forefront of what could be a revolution in extractive industries on the island. The Kvanefjeld project may be the most visible example of China’s economic presence in Greenland, but far from the only one. The question is how Chinese mining investment in Greenland might spill over into the political and security debates surrounding Greenland’s political future.

    Marie Stopes Australia Welcomes Decriminalisation Recommendations.

    Marie Stopes Australia welcomes the release of the Queensland Law Reform Commission report that recommends removing abortion from the State’s Criminal Code.

    CEO of Marie Stopes Australia, Michelle Thompson, said the announcement today by the Queensland Labor Government to support the recommendations and introduce draft legislation to decriminalise abortion was a win for Queensland women.

    “We are delighted that the Queensland Government and the Queensland Law Reform Commission acknowledges that abortion is a health matter not a legal issue,” Ms Thompson said.

    “We fully support the recommendations to remove abortion from the Criminal Code, because criminality is the ultimate form of stigma.”

    Ms Thompson said the instigation of 150m safe access zones around abortion care providers would not only protect patients, but was also important for the welfare of clinic staff.

    The eponymous foundress of Marie Stopes International was an actual, literal Nazi and white supremacist:

    Her ideas on racial purity included a rabid anti-Semitism. She admired Hitler and sent him, with a gushing letter, a copy of a slim volume of love poems she had written; in 1935 she attended the Nazi-sponsored International Congress for Population Science in Berlin. Her anti-Semitism was noted disapprovingly by other pioneers of the birth control movement such as Havelock Ellis. She was also anti-Catholic and anti-Russian.

    Indeed, but…the media were incredibly restrained during the trial and only broke the suppression order once the verdict was given. I would be far more sympathetic to the above had one of them broken ranks and simply published the extraordinary absence of any corroborating evidence, of the multitude of exculpatory evidence, of the sheer improbability, nay impossibility, of the acts alleged having ever occurred under the circumstances stated, and so on. Beyond the cover given you mentioned, the suppression order also provided cover to an extraordinary absence in the criminal law in cases such as this in Victoria, namely, of judge only trials, that are available in other jurisdictions. And the absence of this has lead at least two individuals in the last two years, that we know of, being convicted without any reasonable evidence of guilt and against a background in which their vocation was routinely and unjustly vilified for over two decades by the media and political class.

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    The state of human rights in Qatar is a concern for several non-governmental organizations. Sharia law is the main source of Qatari legislation according to Qatar’s constitution.[1][2] Flogging and stoning as forms of punishment are legal in Qatar due to Sharia law.

    According to Human Rights Watch in June 2012, hundreds of thousands of mostly South Asian migrant workers in construction in Qatar risk serious exploitation and abuse, sometimes amounting to forced labor.[3]

    It was plainly a failed setup. So the real questions are WTF is Al Jazeera, the state broadcaster of Qatar, doing interfering in Australian politics and why is the ABC cooperating with them to do so?

    One of the sentences below is true:

    The ABC is proudly colluding with Muslim terrorist supporters against Islam’s enemies.

    The ABC is without bias or agenda.

    So the Qatar government, incensed over Pauline Hanson’s burqa stunt and One Nation’s position on muslim immigration, undertakes to destroy an Australian political party.

    A Qatar government agency engages a Rodger Muller who approaches One Nation executives with promises that he can help the party legally obtain funding from the NRA and the Koch brothers.

    One Nation expresses interest and subsequently Muller and One Nation’s James Ashby and Steve Dickson are, as a matter of courtesy, granted hearings with representatives of the NRA and Koch Industries.

    Their requests for funding are declined by both the NRA and Koch Industries.

    No matter, secretly recorded footage is in the bag and the Australian government-owned ABC, a staunch ally of the Qatar government-owned Al-Jazeera, has agreed to beat up the recordings and show them in prime time over two nights just two months out from a Federal election.

    John Brennan surrenders to Trump:

    Former CIA chief John O. Brennan now says his months of attacks on President Trump may have been based on “bad information.”

    One of the president’s harshest critics had a muted tone on Monday as he discussed special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” No evidence was found to support the claim that Mr. Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign “conspired or coordinated” with Russia.

    “Well, I don’t know if I received bad information but I think I suspected there was more than there actually was,” Mr. Brennan told host Joe Scarborough. “I am relieved that it’s been determined there was not a criminal conspiracy with the Russian government over our election.”

    Ex-CIA chief offers mea culpa on Trump: ‘I don’t know if I received bad information’

    The reason the left always do this to women, again and again and again, of course, is because when the rubber hits the road the political left are hard-nosed shit-talking realists.

    They know women are social followers and ostracizing and publicly shaming one woman brings almost all women into line – perhaps equal parts for the primal fear of being out of the tribe themselves, and also the particularly acute schadenfreude that so many women have seeing another woman humiliated.

    So they do that, again, and again.

    The problem for their targets is, definitionally, being female politician super heros, they lack the traditional means of rectifying such brutalist behaviour towards them – which is their father, brothers, sons and uncles.

    So they’re on their own.

    You know, BMW is one of the more profitable car makers. It’s really a shit business with wafer think margins.

    BMW BMW -0.98% used to be the blue-chip auto maker that didn’t give investors nasty surprises. Not any more.

    The Munich-based company issued a profit warning Wednesday. Pretax earnings this year will be “well below” the 2018 level. Analysts had been expecting a decline of just 2.7%, according to FactSet. BMW shares fell 5% in morning trading.

    This is BMW’s second warning in six months. In September, it said its automotive operating margin—a crucial benchmark of profitability for car makers—wouldn’t be within its target range of 8-10% in 2018. The company previously met or exceeded the target every quarter since 2009.

    On Wednesday, BMW said its “ambition” remained a margin of 8-10% “within a stable business environment,” but it expects a range of 6-8% this year. That is despite a raft of recent and coming product launches, including a new top-end SUV, that were supposed to accelerate sales.

    The company recited a litany of cost pressures, including new technologies such as electric propulsion and automated driving, stricter emissions rules for traditional fuel engines, higher raw-material prices, currency movements and tariffs if trade disputes and Brexit aren’t favorably resolved.
    Attendees ride in a 2019 BMW X7 sport-utility vehicle during the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show in Las
    BMW is still more profitable than most auto makers. Its close German peer Daimler said last month that its Mercedes unit would make a margin of 6-8% this year, but that includes its Chinese joint venture. If BMW included its lucrative Chinese business, its automotive margin would have been almost a percentage point higher last year.

    The Bavarian manufacturer also announced plans on Wednesday to freeze its head count this year and to find €12 billion in cost savings—equivalent to 13% of last year’s total operating costs—by 2022.

    None of BMW’s problems should come as a surprise to car-industry watchers, but the company used to appear more in control. If this profit engine too is sputtering, it is a sign that the industry really must be facing pressure.

    Nob, if you’re around. I’ve just finish Alistair Moffat’s ‘The Sea Kingdoms’ which you recommended when we met. You may recall I’d already read his other stuff, ‘Arthur and the Lost Kingdoms’ and ‘Before Scotland’ (republished under another title). The Sea Kingdoms is repetitive of much in his Arthur book re the Scottish borders but quite good on comparing and contrasting the ancient P- and Q-Celtic speaking cultures and chequered histories of Gaelic Scotland, especially the Highlands, with those of Old Wales, Ireland, the Isle of Man, Cornwell and of course the domain of the Lords of the Isles. Only occasional mentions of Brittany but they too are obviously part of the mix. A broad sweep showing the influential areas still holding later bowdlerized memories of ancient cosmologies and mindfulness. I’d already come to a ‘sea kingdoms’ conclusion myself re the Celto-Norse and Hiberno-Norse, and this adds a lot of research to my own, particularly some more ‘baden’ names and associations. He’s a Celtic romantic of course, bound into landscape, which I also appreciate, and still arguing a ‘real’ Arthur from the Gododdin, but I can cope with that. 😉

    So Ashby was greedy, looking for cash right before the laws changed.
    What a rube.

    I thought the meeting took place sometime in late 2018, before the law changed…?

    OK, maybe it did … in which case this is indeed all feelz. Never the less, check, double check and always be suspicious. You really want people running this country who are complete muppets?

    Hmmm … maybe better don’t answer that question.

    Yes, Bob, that may have been the case – but where were YOU?

    Numbers, bless your heart. Gun wankers? Do you mean the million people punished by the gun laws?

    Boy, 6, beheaded in front of screaming mum in Saudi Arabia ‘for being wrong religion’

    Mediaeval in its horror.
    Poor little boy, born in a civilized era into a murderous world of warring religious cultists.

    Yet Saudi Arabia claims a place on UN human rights committees and lectures us.

    According to TheirABC, “The efforts to solicit money from the NRA and other US gun advocates took place just weeks before Australia’s Federal Parliament changed electoral laws to ban foreign donations to political parties.”

    Aunty’s desperation skirts showing?

    Australian Conservatives’s election policy ‘ we aren’t PHON’

    Dover, if I was registering a new non-leftist party, I would call it the Australian People’s Party. I would design the marketing around the fact that it is the only party that guarantees the same common law standards for everyone and represents ordinary working people against special interests and protected untouchables. In other words, it would be what One Nation should be, but will never be because it is moored to Pauline Hanson. Plus, the name would drive the communist lefty crazy.

    Just to expand on my first thoughts above, it’s pointless starting a political movement if you’re not serious about exercising power. Australian Conservatives isn’t serious because it’s not serious about raising money. Neither is One Nation, though it gets de facto coverage because the leftist media want to take every available opportunity to destroy Pauline Hanson.

    If you’re serious about starting a political movement, tactically you’ve got to run it like a consumer brand, out in the marketplace competing with brands that attract real consumer dollars. It’s pointless making it something that people think about only once every three or four years.

    That means the minimum you must allocate for a TV campaign for a federal election is around $2 million for two weeks in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth (ave $20,000 per 30 secs in prime time), plus around $1m for a print campaign.

    Then you hire a team of PR professionals whose target is to double that exposure in free advertising – i.e., stories on the 6pm news, plus exposure in the print media. Double the outlay for 12 months of planning.

    Double the overall campaign budget, including administration, to $10m.

    If you haven’t got $10m in the bank,you’re starting with one hand tied behind your back – especially when the Liars and the Filth have 90% of journalists voting for them and busting to write propaganda for them.

    Politically, people like Cory Bernardi and David Leyonhjelm are irrelevant unserious clowns who will never get more than 2-5% of first preferences.

    If you want to make a difference, get serious.

    You’ve overlooked the fact that the sound of the kind of round the clock saturation bombing that was underway at the time could be heard when conditions were right, from that distance.

    That’s about the same as being able to hear the NYE Sydney fireworks while sitting on the beach at Woolongong. I admit I’ve never tried it, but kind of sounds doubtful.

    For argument sakes … let’s suppose you could hear it … how did you manage to triangulate where this distant sound was coming from? I generally find with thunder and other similar noises that it’s quite difficult to even know which direction they are coming from, let alone the exact distance.

    Numbers – Al Jazeera is owned by the Qatari government.
    So Al Jaz was trying to do exactly what the Democrats just spent two years trying to smear Trump with. Al Jaz therefore should be immediately banned from Australia and access to their website blocked.
    We also should have a Royal Commission into foreign influence in Australian elections.
    Start with Obama sending his guys to help the ALP and Soros backing of GetUp.

    Yet Saudi Arabia claims a place on UN human rights committees and lectures us.

    And didn’t Iran just get a chair on the UN women’s rights c’tee?

    After just sentencing a human rights lawyer who defends Iranian women caught without their head scarfs to a punishment which included imprisonment and a lashing?
