    Just saw tits Shorten on tv running and it got me thinking.

    Have we ever had a normal looking Prime Minister?

    If we get Shorten we will get some massive man boobs.
    Morrison has a weird mouth and hair.
    Turnbull had weird ears and crooked weird shaped head.
    Abbott had weird ears.
    Rudd had weird hands.
    Gillard had weird ear lobes and massive nose and ass.
    Howard had weird eye brows.
    Keating had a crooked weird shaped head.
    Hawke had weird eyes.
    Fraser had a weird jaw.
    Whitlam had a weird nose and jaw.
    McMahon had weird ears.
    Gorton had a weird nose.
    Holt looked normal.
    Menzies had weird eye brows.

    It’s to make it easy for cartoonists. Or did we only notice these features after the cartoonists magnified them?

    Shorten has promised UNLIMITED long term aged parent visas to shore up the Chicom and currymuncher constituencies. Estimated cost of tens of billions over the forwsrd estimates. Just think on that!

    There are already over 100,000 aged parents on the waiting list, just wait till, now that it will be only $2,500, the Afghans, Pakistian, Bangladesh, Middle East and India residents in Australia, really get on board – how do you verify Health Insurance if taken out in home country?

    And after 10 years they will be entitled to Pension and Medicare without ever having contributed a cent of Australian Tax.

    Over the last year in regular attendance at RNSH Out Patients Clinics (superb medical care), I have been stunned by the number of aged Chinese, Indian, Middle East Grandparents in attendance — close to over 50% of attendees.

    God Help Australia’s Medical System and Aged Care & Pension Costs if Bill Shorten Labor.Greens get in

    There is no welfare in China, so PROC. and the other countries will be exporting their Welfare Cost to Australian Taxpayers – The Young should be worried about their Future

    But we are a rich country we can afford it. You must be a racist and white supremacist. [sarc]

    Adam Goodes awarded third honorary doctorate

    Two-time AFL Brownlow medallist Adam Goodes has been awarded his third honorary doctorate, this time for human rights advocacy, his fight against ­racism and support of young ­Aboriginal people.

    Goodes, the 2014 Australian of the Year and member of the AFL’s indigenous Team of the Century, was recognised in ­Adelaide yesterday by the University of South Australia.

    The 39-year-old touched only briefly upon Aboriginal issues in his acceptance speech, opting to focus on the importance of education and hard work. Goodes completed secondary school but never attended university.

    “The richness of learning and opportunity comes not only from the formal education that you receive but the people you meet, the situations you encounter and the mistakes you make,” he said. “Education is the absolute underlying key for people to achieve their goals, not just because it provides them with more knowledge and understanding of the world and the people around them, but also because it enables people to dream, and dream big.”

    Goodes, a 372-game, two-time Sydney Swans premiership player, referred to himself as “just a retired footy player with a couple of Brownlows and a really ‘offensive’ dance”.

    During the AFL’s indigenous round in 2015, Goodes triggered a heated debate when he performed a traditional dance after kicking a goal against Carlton. The act divided fans and commentators. In the latter part of his playing career, he was often booed by opposition fans, which many people said was racist behaviour caused by Goodes’s outspoken position on issues affecting ­Aboriginal people.

    NO WHITES ALLOWED: Wake Forest University To Hold Segregated Faculty Meetings (via BCF)

    A private university in North Carolina will hold segregated meetings for “faculty and staff of color” amid racial tension on campus, according to a Wednesday report.

    “Dear faculty and staff colleagues, this is a reminder about our upcoming listening sessions on inclusion that I am holding for faculty and staff of color over the next several weeks,” said an April 18 email from Dean Michele Gillespie.

    So not only is a lefty university embracing segregation again, but the segregated meeting is a listening session on inclusion…

    Just read the reviews on the now defunct café. All those poor trannies and transes!

    I went to a restaurant in Washington a few years back. I’m very slow on the uptake… Until I went to the “ladies” and found some rather nicely frocked up guys in there. Back at the table, I mentioned this to the Beloved, looked around and realised I was the only woman in the place (I think).

    The two guys at the next table were splitting themselves laughing, as were we. When asked where were we from, I replied “Sydney”. At that they were all agog and interested.

    Quite a different experience from those horrid old hard-bitten lezzos.

    Not as inclusive as they thought

    Handsome Her is a feminist cafe that seemed like the most inclusive place to grab a drink and good meal for a feminist woman who loves women like me. At first glance I thought it was my dream coffee place, being openly feminist, eco-friendly with an all vegan menu and a lesbian owner who has implemented a man tax. I went there countless times with many different people and recommended the place to a wide variety of friends, including male allies.
    Last Sunday they were hosting a queer party for the Sydney Rd festival and I went there with a bunch of friends, amongst which was my partner of two years, who is a woman, her girlfriend and a queer boy I am currently dating, as we are all polyamorous. I was making out on the dance floor with a woman I met there, along with my gender non-conforming date when the owner of the place came to us and said that this is a place for gay people. She looked at him and then at me and shamed us publicly. Such overt discrimination was very confronting for both of us as this was a queer event, not an only lesbians one; it sounded like queers and bisexuals were not welcome. It saddens me to see how a place I thought was inclusive and progressive could turn out to be as radical and rejecting of diversity as most places are.

    If there was a glass ceiling, it’s well and truly smashed’: Brigadier Susan Coyle
    Kate Christian, Inner West Courier Inner West
    21 minutes ago
    Subscriber only

    “If there ever was a glass ceiling, it’s well and truly smashed”.

    These are the powerful words of the Australian Army’s first regular female brigade commander Susan Coyle, who delivered the keynote address at a solemn Anzac dawn service at Burwood Park.

    Brigadier Coyle, who is the Commander of the 6th Brigade, told the Courier she expects to see an increasing number of female leaders in the Australian Defence Force.

    All roles are now open to men and women and if you have the ability and desire, you can be anything you want to be.

    “It’s a wonderful time to be in our defence force and our numbers of women are consistently growing every year.

    Her message to young girls contemplating a career in the force: “If I was to start my career again tomorrow I would join the Australian Army.”

    Final thoughts on Milligan’s apparently appalling – if clichéd – Catholic childhood.

    I can’t find Milligan’s age, but from her publicity shots, I’d say she was born on the mid 70s.

    We don’t know when her family migrated from Ireland.

    So all that stuff could have happened in Ireland, or it might have been in both Ireland and Australia. There is, of course, a third possibility.

    Whatever, the average Woman’s Weekly reader would have been led to assume it was typical of Catholic Australia just a few decades past. Still all a bit shabby, in my opinion.

    The Green New Deal Will Hit the Poor With Higher Energy Costs

    “It’s upside-down Robin Hood.”

    The Green New Deal’s goal is to move America to zero carbon emissions in 10 years.

    “That’s a goal you could only imagine possible if you have no idea how energy is produced,” James Meigs, former editor of Popular Mechanics magazine, says in my latest video.

    “Renewable is so inconsistent,” he adds. “You can’t just put in wind turbines and solar panels. You have to build all this infrastructure to connect them with energy consumers.”

    Because wind doesn’t always blow and the sun doesn’t always shine, “renewable” energy requires many more transmission lines, and bigger batteries.

    Unfortunately, says Meigs: “You have to mine materials for batteries. Those mines are environmentally hazardous. Disposing of batteries is hazardous.”

    “Batteries are a lousy way to store energy,” adds physicist Mark Mills, senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute. Also, the ingredients of green energy, like battery packs, are far from green.

    “You have to consume 100 barrels of oil in China to make that battery pack,” he explains. “Dig up 1,000 pounds of stuff to process it. Digging is done with oil, by big machines, so we’re consuming energy to ‘save’ energy—not a good path to go.”

    Still, wind turbines and solar batteries are 10 times more efficient than when they were first introduced! That’s not good enough, writes Mills, to make “the new energy economy” anything more than “magical thinking.”

    The dream of “green” causes us to misdirect resources. Even after billions in government subsidies, solar still makes up less than 1 percent of America’s energy—wind just 2 percent. And even that energy isn’t really “clean.”

    “We use billions of tons of hydrocarbons to make the windmills that are already in the world, and we’ve only just begun to make them at the level people claim they would like them to be built,” says Mills. “Pursue a path of wind, solar and batteries, we increase how much we dig up and move by a thousand-fold.”

    “You gotta clear-cut the forest. These machines kill a lot of birds,” says Meigs. “I agree that we should bring down our carbon emissions…but we should also make sure we’re spending money on stuff that really works.”

    There is one energy source, though, that efficiently produces lots of power with no carbon emissions: nuclear.

    But people fear it. They point to the Chernobyl plant accident in Ukraine, and Fukushima in Japan.

    “The Chernobyl plant design was idiotically bad,” says Meigs. They don’t make nuclear plants like that anymore.

    What about Fukushima?

    “Fukushima helps prove how safe nuclear power really is. No one was killed.”

    I pointed out that people were killed during the evacuation.

    “Fear of radiation killed people,” responded Meigs. They evacuated older people who didn’t need to go.

    People fear what they don’t understand and what they can’t see.

    “A dam breaks, and hundreds of thousands of people die. Nuclear plants, their safety, ironically, is actually evident in their accidents!” says Mills.

    “More people have fallen off of roofs installing solar panels than have been killed in the entire history of nuclear power in the U.S.,” adds Meigs.

    Yet after Fukushima, Germany shut down its nuclear plants. That led to higher electricity prices and increased carbon emissions because Germany burned coal to make up for the loss of nuclear power.

    “It’s a wonderful time to be in our defence force …”

    The Abo Industry lurve honorary titles.

    So does the ABC, which is usually scrupulous about acknowledging an Indigenous person’s honorary doctorate – although they seem to be a bit tardy with Adam – which ignoring it if it’s a whitey, particularly a bad whitey like Kerry Packer.

    And of course Labor ‘traitor’ Mal Colston was never referred to as Dr Colston by the ABC, even though he had a genuine, earned doctorate.

  78. Roger

    The Abo Industry lurve honorary titles.

    So does the ABC,

    Holders of honourary doctorates should not be referred to as “Doctor”.

  79. Found the crazy landwhale’s article at Campus Reform:

    https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=12142

    “I truly believe that a child cannot consent to being on a diet the same way a child cannot consent to having sex”

    “I do not think it’s surprising that the man who shot up Christchurch, New Zealand was also a fitness instructor,”

    “This conversation about pushing off our own wellbeing onto the individual is part of these 1980s Reagan era policies that again try to move that structural obligation of a system and this social safety net onto the individual,” Rashatwar said, “instead of thinking that there should be social supports that also help me to subsidize my food costs.”

    Her solution to these problems of society requiring individual responsibility was calling students “to challenge all authorities, not just the authority that science has given but also legal authority…the same way I want us all to challenge laws, I want us all to challenge prisons and policing.”

    These comments and more were made in the context of her two-hour speech, sponsored by St. Olaf College’s Wellness Center, Women’s and Gender Studies Department, and Center for Equity and Inclusion, on the topic of “radical fat liberation.” The talk included assertions that fitness contributed to the recent Christchurch shooting, that people should “challenge” the rule of law, as well as the authority of and the police.

    “Tonight we’re gonna start by talking about how to politicize our definition of body image,” Rashatwar began, “because oftentimes we actually get stuck thinking of it from a white supremacist lense.” She explained how “white supremacy happens every day in all these little little things.”

    “We should be critical of the use of science and the production of knowledge to continue promoting this idea that certain bodies are fit, able, and desirable…is it my fatness that causes my high blood pressure, or is it my experience of weight stigma?” Rashatwar asked. She then connected the science suggesting that obesity is unhealthy to Nazism, saying that “fatphobic” science is “often actually eugenic science….eugenic science is Nazi science.”

    Day by day the media and the major parties give my supposedly outlandish predictions about palmer and his minions more currency.

    If he gets up the Country will be conducting a solemn Memorial Day for our previous way of life.

    To be fair this may also apply if the greens, alp or other crazy arsed bastards get up.

    EXCLUSIVE: IRGC Commander believed to have defected to the West

    Brigadier General Ali Nasiri, head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps Protection Bureau, is said to have fled to the West after a fallout with the representative of the Supreme Leader in the IRGC.

    On Thursday, April 11th, during a meeting among the senior IRGC intelligence officials, Nasiri and Hossein Taeb, the representative of the Supreme Leader to the IRGC came to blows. The following days, when Nasiri failed to show up for work, it was revealed that he had actually left the country.

    Nasiri, already commander of the Seyyed al-Shohada unit of the Guards in Tehran Province, was appointed in 2017 by Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari, commander-in-chief of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps.

    Nassiri is said to have gone to a US embassy in one of the Persian Gulf countries while carrying important strategic documents, seeking political asylum. The IGGC’s Protection Bureau was established in 1984, to oversee aviation and flight security (hijacking and bombing), as well as protection for regime and government officials, and foreign dignitaries visiting Iran.

    Will just add that out of crowd of approx 1000 at today’s service, I saw quite a few Indian families but not one Chinaman.

    I’ve noticed this at the surf club too. Plenty of Indian and Sri Lankan families, even a few black African families, but no Orientals.

    I think Orientals are generally good citizens, but wonder why they don’t get involved in anything except business.

    I enjoyed walking up the Glass Reichstag Dome when visiting Grandchildren in Berlin

    Thought it looked good, and the view from

    was as it says

    “Visit the Reichstag and enjoy a beautiful view of Berlin from the famed glass dome. Have coffee and cake at the rooftop restaurant at a table reserved specially for you.”

    There were more than 15,000 Indians fighting at Gallipoli but their part in the campaign is often forgotten. Military historian Rana Chhina says Indian infantry and artillery were vital to the struggle, while Indian mule drivers toiled under heavy fire to keep the Anzacs supplied with vital food, water and ammunition.

  107. Leigh Lowe

    Serious question.
    Why didn’t the IPA or somesuch alt-right thinking tank attend the Handsome Her Cafe and Licker Store, carefully note and witness what was said, and run an EO case?
    Yeah, sure, there are plenty of rabid lezzos out there who express that sort of view, but it is a whole different thing to openly base a business model around man-hating.
    Of course, South-Possum and the Baby-Dumper at the HREOC would have desparately tried to dodge it and put it into perpetual mediation, but it would have made for great Senate hearings … “which part of the Act that you administer excuses this sort of behaviour?”
    Opportunity lost.

    Brigadier Coyle, who is the Commander of the 6th Brigade, told the Courier she expects to see an increasing number of female leaders in the Australian Defence Force.

    Indeed. Due to the acceptance of the Sex Discrimination Commissioner’s 2012 recommendation that – “[ADF leadership] should review and redesign the practice of selecting the most senior strategic leadership positions in the ADF from a broader group of meritorious candidates, particularly women” – this will certainly happen.

    Of course this will result in a massive loss of combat capability.

    Strategic leadership positions have traditionally been selected from Combat Corps because it is a logical professional progression. Combat Corps officers learn their profession by commanding platoons as a junior officer, then commanding progressively larger units until they have acquired enough knowledge and experience to be selected for strategic leadership. It doesn’t make sense for officers from non-Combat Corps to be placed in command of strategic combat formations when they haven’t had the experience commanding smaller combat units.

    Commanding troops in combat is a serious business at every level of command. The selection of strategic leaders based on gender rather than experience is folly.

    When challenged about the percentage of wymynsys vikpol agents off street duties because of stress leave and physical injury, the response is that vikpol must be transformed into an enviroment that does not bully and cripple wymynsys.

    Like the fire department, robots and drones and contractors and remote surveillance are the future.

    Knuckle draggers will be told they have no path for promotion within vikpol, while wymynsys catch up on their fair 50% good jobs and diversity hires take half the rest.

    Former senior constable reveals homophobic, sexist bullying from colleagues in Victorian Police

    Dear Lord. Apparently the main Perth ANZAC service has a corroboree and a haka

    They had the same last year too. Fortunately these two abominations (including a welcome to country) are performed at a different location and after the completion of the dawn service.

    I discussed this and other faults with the service in an email exchange with the CEO of RSLWA last year, at the conclusion of which I gave him the following considered advice:

    May I suggest that if you are not willing to stand up for Australian culture and tradition then you step aside for someone who will.

    To my surprise, he did not take kindly to that advice.

    At a Pilbara location I was working for several years , the lads were up in arms when the haka was introduced to the Dawn Service without consultation.

    No they and their puppet masters will use their excessive casualties and losses as evidence of A) Superior Heroism, and B) institutionalised bias which means they’re clearly put in harms way more often than white men.

    To remedy that the white soldiers will be sent to the most dangerous areas and the most dangerous units at a far higher rate while the termites will be allowed to stay at the back in order to balance the casualty rates out.

    Perversely this will be grudgingly accepted by the real solders as they will be relieved to just have those fucked up retards out of their way.

    The $1.3 billion solar homes package started last August and has been so popular that the rebates for this financial year have been fully subscribed…

    Since the freeze on new applications came into effect, the work for solar installation companies like Sky Energy Systems of Melbourne has dried up.

    The business’s directors, Sam Hunt and Ross Howard, said they had no choice but to cut staff when customers started cancelling their orders.

    The role of 6 Bde is to provide Combat Support to land based forces in joint, combined and interagency operations. The brigade was re-raised on 1st March 2010 and is made up of specialist intelligence, artillery, engineer and signals capabilities. Headquarters 6th Brigade is located in Sydney and its units are geographically dispersed across Australia.

    The 6th Brigade currently consists of the following units:

    1st Intelligence Battalion
    1st Military Police Battalion
    6th Engineer Support Regiment
    7th Signal Regiment
    16th Air Land Regiment
    19th Chief Engineer Works
    20th Surveillance and Target Acquisition Regiment

    The reference to the 6th Brigade was, possibly deliberately, airbrushed to suggest the former 6th Infantry Brigade, not the current formation.

    The good brigadier is closer to combat than yesterday’s “combat warrior”, but still not quite there.

    regarding milligan & her recollection of JMJ at the top of the pages at school – I went to a Catholic primary school in the early 1960s where A.M.D.G. was encouraged but never enforced.

    And Nota – your link earlier about the lady walloper in Daylesford brought back some endearing memories.

    First, you have to be gay to work anywhere near Daylesford. It’s like the Handsome Her, except it’s a whole town and they actually provide service to all.

    I actually know the person described in your link. Let me provide a hypothetical state of affairs.

    1. The lady walloper in question is five foot one, and despite having a very tidy rig is the quintessential ‘couldn’t pass the physical tests but got accepted because vagina but our standards have not been lowered in any way’ type.

    2. Has a voice that could double as an air raid siren and induce cardiac arrest in the elderly and sick.

    3. Used that voice in her brief period on streets that contained angry people to pick fights with MMA fighters and bikies, and then left her male colleagues to do all the work, saving her petite bum in the process.

    4. Is an ardent lesbian (like all of us) and made every other ‘breeder’ (her words for the hetero ladees)’s life hell everywhere she went.

    5. Has history for turning everyone at stations against each other, so that spiteful mini civil wars flare up in her path, and revels in it; and

    6. At the first sign of encountering people that won’t put up with her shit (in Daylesford of all places) and throw a bit back in kind, screams long and loud to every equal oppo firm within Internet reach, breaching established policy and procedure and ignoring departmental conflict resolution guidelines, because they’re for other people.

    Imagine. Tell the young kids today and they woooon’t believe you.

  189. I know I bang about this, but the evidence suggests the Saxons were merely the English celts.

    The comments are a hoot. The English are the invaders and oppressors of Britain (not Ireland)? The non-English British who speak English speak the tongue of the “oppressor”? Some of the stuff is so fanciful and anti English it is a real laugh. “The English can all sail back to Germany…”

    Another commenter notes that the 100,000 Saxons on 150 ships would have taken decades to ferry across as an “invasion”.

    Some commenters suggest that medieval welsh Wales was smaller than the admin. area now, in fact many parts were “English”, in effect the British in England and the British in Wales were not that different that all in 1066.

    Remember that English has a sentence structure most like Irish Gaelic, despite the verb and conjunction similarity to German.

    I can’t find the other video yet with stronger archeological evidence of the Saxons being post Roman with absolute continuity (and trade links with the Swedes). This one more or less says the dark ages were a Victorian myth. Better version is second.

    Some of the commenters just outright lie about mythical “DNA studies”.

    China Facial Recognition Database Leak Sparks Fears Over Mass Data Collection (18 Feb)

    A company that operates facial recognition systems in China has exposed the personal information of 2.5 million people after leaving a database unprotected, it has emerged.

    It was discovered by Dutch cybersecurity researcher Victor Gevers, who works for the GDI Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to reporting security issues. He tweeted: “There is this company in China named SenseNets. They make artificial intelligence-based security software systems for face recognition, crowd analysis, and personal verification. And their business IP and millions of records of people tracking data is fully accessible to anyone.”

    The database contained the ID card number, tracking location data of the last 24 hours, sex, nationality, address, passphoto, birthday, and even employer. Gevers had apparently first reported the issue to SenseNets in July.

    Leaving aside the fact that Turnbull flounced out, their ABC’s Annabelle Crabb misses the point:

    One Nation voters think dumping Malcolm Turnbull was the right decision

    Proportion of voters who responded YES or NO to the question: “In your opinion, did the Liberal Party make the right decision in changing leaders from Malcolm Turnbull to Scott Morrison?

    Australian Greens: 97% [No], 3% [Yes]
    Australian Labor Party: 96% [No], 4% [Yes]
    Liberal-National Coalition: 58% [No], 42% [Yes]
    Pauline Hanson’s One Nation: 41% [No], 59% [Yes]

    Based on 153,354 respondents to Vote Compass between April 10 and April 16.

    No big surprise about PHON supporters loathing the Wentworth. But, rather more interestingly, the poll overwhelmingly reflects where Turnbull’s constituency actually lay.

    There’s only one type of voter who preferred Turnbull…

    How to enjoy yourself in Queensland:

    A naked tradie clung for life to the back of his ute as thieves sped through the streets of Brisbane’s northern suburbs last night.

    Bobby-Lee Cook was in the shower around 10:30pm last night when his partner heard his Toyota Hilux dual cab ute revving outside their Bracken Ridge home.

    Running outside in just a towel, he found two thieves in the ute’s cab about to make off. Hoping to stop the pair, Mr Cook jumped into the tray as the vehicle began to move.

    Clinging to the back of the ute for half an hour, the thieves drove at speeds of up to 140km/h from Bracken Ridge to Murrumba Downs, including a stretch down the Gateway Motorway.

    When swerving across both sides of the road failed to shake off the half naked man, one of the thieves grabbed a ceramic coffee cup that was in the car and threw it at Mr Cook. The cup smashed into his forehead, forcing him to remove the towel from his waist to stem the bleeding.

    “I did see it in mid air and tried to dodge it but I couldn’t,” Mr Cook said.

    “As soon as it smashed I saw blood.”

    The car eventually came to a stop at Castle Hill Drive, about 8.5 kilometres from Mr Cook’s Bracken Ridge home. Just when he thought his ordeal was over, accomplices in a white car approached. The group of young men are believed to be between 16 and 20 years-old.

    Mr Cook jumped from the tray and made off, deciding to walk to a nearby service station and call the police. Paramedics treated him for a minor head injury at the scene.

    Meanwhile, Mr Cook’s 35-week pregnant fiance, Amy Kendall, sat stressed at home.

    “The fact that we couldn’t find him made it all the more stressful,” she said.

    What we are seeing at The Drum is cultural cleansing
    THE MOCKER

    Do you ever wonder if there is intelligent life elsewhere in the universe? Sorry, let me rephrase that: do you ever wonder if there is intelligent life in the universe? No doubt you too are curious about what it would make of us and our primitive attempts to make contact.

    If we are to succeed in that endeavour, let us hope it is not through the Pioneer 10 and 11 space probes, which were launched in the early 1970s. Both bear a 15 x 23 gold-anodised plaque depicting a naked Caucasian couple, which was a blatant attempt to reinforce a racist, heteronormative, and binary hegemony under the guise of interstellar harmony. Nice going, NASA, you cultural and biological fascists.

    Fortunately in these more enlightened times we are more woke to attempts to marginalise the wretched. And should we make contact with extra-terrestrials, it is more likely to be through the radio waves we have been transmitting for over a century. What they will first see is anyone’s guess. Imagine, for example, the impression we could convey through documentaries such as David Attenborough’s Planet Earth or When We Were Kings, the inspiring story of boxer Muhammad Ali’s triumph over George Foreman to reclaim his title as World Heavyweight Champion. But Murphy’s Law being what it is, I fear the aliens’ first impression of us will be gleaned from the self-centred, partisan and victimhood drivel which passes as informed comment today.

    Which brings me to The Drum. According to the ABC website, the show, which is hosted alternately by Ellen Fanning and Julia Baird, features a “diverse, respectful and robust discussion” on “the key issues gripping or confounding Australia,” Australia being the areas within a five kilometre radius of the ABC studios at Ultimo, Sydney and Southbank, Melbourne.

    An alien anthropologist would conclude from watching this show that the key issues gripping and confounding Australia were an impending climate apocalypse, as well as rampant misogyny, racism, and cruelty towards asylum-seekers. And naturally the anthropologist would also conclude the chief beneficiaries of this dystopian hierarchy are heterosexual and cisgender white males.

    As with many of today’s public institutions, The Drum’s definition of diversity is taken from a social justice dictionary. Consider, for example, the program’s treatment of the Institute of Public Affairs, a public policy think tank which espouses principles such as limited government, individual autonomy, and freedom of speech — all oppressive and hateful concepts admittedly. Until April last year IPA representatives featured on The Drum at an average of once a month.

    Its prolonged absence from the program is not of the IPA’s doing. As revealed by Sky News host and The Australian Associate Editor Chris Kenny on Monday, its representatives have effectively been blacklisted from The Drum, despite the ABC insisting otherwise.

    This followed an aggressive social media disinformation campaign last year by leftist activists who claimed the show disproportionately featured IPA panellists. As Baird noted last year, one activist estimated the IPA had notched up 50 appearances on the show in the period between January and July in 2018, when the organisation had in fact appeared only three times. “But it is only the IPA that is shouted down when they appear on air,” she wrote last July. “So much so that it has become disproportionate and irrational.”

    Kudos to Baird for admitting this, but unfortunately she herself has seemingly acquiesced in these demands. In the following months the IPA was politely rebuffed or ignored whenever its representatives volunteered to appear on the program. Last October the IPA’s media and communications manager, Evan Mulholland, emailed Baird to ask her whether the show had vetoed the appearance of the think tank’s staff. He was referred to the show’s executive producer, Annie White, who denied this, stating “We’ve had a very busy year and more than 500 people on our panel books.”

    Who knew getting a gig on the show was so competitive? Let’s recap some statistics that Kenny on Media outlined concerning certain panellists from The Drum in the 12 months since an IPA representative last appeared. We begin with Per Capita, a think tank which espouses “shared prosperity, community and social justice”. It featured 10 times. The Diversity Council of Australia scored six appearances, as did Human Rights Watch and Change.org. As for the far-left activist group GetUp!, it featured eight times.

    Muslim entrepreneur Aisha Novakovich and founder of Modest Fashion has appeared five times. Cross-cultural consultant and fellow Muslim Tasneem Chopra secured nine appearances. Presumably it is coincidence the IPA missed out all this time while these progressive interest groups and individuals were given a free run.

    When a lone gunman and terrorist murdered 50 New Zealanders in two Christchurch mosques in March, The Drum was quick to analyse the atrocity through a familiar prism. “What role has Australian media and politics played in fomenting the rise of white supremacy?” it tweeted.

    The next weekday after the attack it featured an all Muslim women panel to discuss this theme. One of them was GetUp! board member Sara Saleh. In addition to saying former prime minister Tony Abbott’s “existence” was “offensive”, she said he, together with Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton, had “emboldened neo-Nazis and white supremacists,” declaring all three “have blood on their hands”. For good measure The Drum tweeted Saleh’s outrageous diatribe.

    Now compare that with the show’s reaction to the terrorist bombings of three churches and luxury hotels on Easter Sunday in Sri Lanka, allegedly by Islamic State, which resulted in the deaths of 359 people. This would have been an ideal time for The Drum to discuss the very real dangers that Christians face from Islamists in the developing world. So what was the show’s response? Put it this way, in the three episodes that have aired since the attack, none of them featured an all-Christian panel to canvas this.

    When the show this month discussed the concept of masculinity, even seasoned cynical viewers were surprised at the unabashed misandry. “We need to do the hard work and for all men to put their hands up and acknowledge their misogyny, acknowledge the fact that they are profiting from toxic masculinity in some way, even if they are not violent,” said panellist and co-founder of HIV advocacy group The Institute of Many, Nic Holas.

    To claim all men are guilty of misogyny and that masculinity is an original sin is a contemptible slur, yet this remark was not challenged by host John Barron. Guest Jacqui Watt, CEO of No to Violence, added in response to Holas that she “echoed everything he said”. Not surprisingly Twitter exploded, with many men expressing anger at being stigmatised, which prompted The Drum to tweet an admonishment. “Some of the comments below clearly breach the boundaries of civil language,” it read. “So a reminder: be respectful.”

    Yes of course, “be respectful”. I am certain even the most mild-mannered of men who saw that episode were tempted to give their televisions the full Elvis treatment. It takes a special kind of narcissistic dissonance on one hand to facilitate and condone the demonisation of 50 per cent of the population, yet on the other to take offence when being on the receiving end of a few choice words from that provoked demographic.

    Just imagine the reaction if a men’s rights activist was invited on the panel and expressed similar views about feminism. “All fourth wave feminists need to put their hands up and acknowledge their misandry, acknowledge they are entitled harpies who profit from toxic feminism,” he would say. After pulling the plug for a brief period, The Drum would resume with a live shot of said man being hurled off the roof of ABC head office, along with any male who added that he “echoed everything he said”.

    What we are seeing at The Drum is cultural cleansing, a gradual removal of all conservative commentary in accordance with ABC’s unspoken ethos and the militant demands of unrelenting social media activists. The ABC’s doing so is a total abrogation of its statutory charter, yet its staff continue to deny the organisation’s bias despite the abundant evidence. In a statement released Monday, the ABC said “The Drum draws on a database of more than 500 people for its panels; it aims for a diversity of guests and viewpoints from a range of sources. IPA representatives continue to be a part of this mix as they have previously.”

    How appropriate the show is named after a percussion instrument. As they say, empty vessels make the most noise.

    Without knowing the exact nature of civilian police involvement in the service attended by SATP, I offer the following:

    The role of civilian police in Anzac Day and like events should be restricted to traffic and/or crowd control for the bigger ones. I can also accept the need for some level of CT presence in some events, but these by necessity should not, and would not necessarily overt.

    My view is that police marching as a group during Anzac Day events is, as they say, surplus to requirements. I believe it’s ‘mission creep’ where slowly but surely everyone with a uniform of any sort is allowed to march, and by association becomes part of the Anzac culture.

    There are quite a few civvy wallopers in this day and age with a military background, which is excellent. By all means they can march (this sounds condescending but that’s not my intent), but in civvies with their gongs on full display with the other returned Diggers.

    To my knowledge no serving civvy Australian police officer, without a military background has been buried by artillery fire, dug shrapnel out of their pack or engaged in hand to hand combat using bayonets, shovels and helmets. Today belongs to those to have.

    John C,

    Saw that vision on FB this morning.

    The post was deleted after someone pointed out the bleeding obvious.

    The UK nudges ever closer to nullifying a vote because the people got it wrong…

    Brexit
    There will be no soft Brexit now. It’s no deal or another vote
    Martin Kettle


    The passage of time and Theresa May’s rigid and error-strewn handling of the Brexit process have reset the options more than once.
    .

    Bullshit, Mays job is to make it “unworkable” for as long as possible before announcing its all off, retiring, and being appointed head of a Pro EU quango for life.

    So, when May finally made an opening to Labour in early April, there was a possibility that a Brexit compromise was on the cards

    Thats not how you spell “Stitch up”.

    There are three big issues on the table in these talks. But there is no agreement on any of them. The first is over the terms of a future customs union and on single market alignment. The second, on which the two sides have had the biggest arguments, is on “future-proofing” any agreement against the next Conservative leader. The third is over the role, if any, of a confirmatory second vote.

    So a major part of the problem is how to nobble any repeat of people voting “wrongly”. An issue so important May is trying to get Labour support.
    Im pretty sure a second vote would be a disaster for the UK, what legitimacy would it have given the results of the first vote werent applied?

    The effective Brexit choice will lie between no deal, promoted by May’s successor and much of the Tory party, and a second vote, hopefully but by no means certainly promoted by Corbyn, and by other parties too. But the choice for pro-Europeans has now been clarified, and no pro-European can doubt where they must stand.

    We will dissolve the people and elect a new one….

    Theresa May is under pressure from senior MPs over her decision to ignore national security concerns and allow Chinese firm Huawei to supply parts for Britain’s 5G rollout.

    She really is an idiot.

    She’s a childless bint with no stake in the future.

    These deranged barren lunatics must never be near power. She salting the earth.

    Britain must be banned from 5 eyes.

    More Dinesh D’souza and less Polly. She’s a goddamned Q-tard.

    So quick to judge Polly, Frank.

    She’s doing a sterling job exposing the trafficking of children.

    Who ignored her frantic horn beeping and attempts to force him off the road to save the horses.

    (After tracking the number plate down, the horses were found to be statues on their way to an Anzac day event at flemington)

    “But I saw them moving” sobs the wymynsys, her rage forced to await another victim another outrageous day.

    Tell me they aren’t actually stark raving mad.

    I know I bang about this, but the evidence suggests the Saxons were merely the English celts.

    Dot, I bang on about this too, have been for a while now. Have you read my Quadrant article yet (September 2018 in the magazine, now online)? It is creating some interest in Britain now, as it does add something new to the evidence for a lack of a Saxon invasion. I provide a new interpretation of how the concept of a Saxon invasion emerged as ‘fake news’ from the murky sermon of Gildas, which of course formed the basis for the anti-Welsh feelings and new historiography of Bede. Plus I trace with reasonable evidence how an older north-western European cosmology informed British myth-making about identity. Just watched the Pryor video; nothing I haven’t heard about before, and have read some of the relevant papers on this stuff. Pryor holds true to his position in spite of various attacks, particularly from Heinrich Harke re Britain. A complex picture deserves a complex analysis, intones Pryor, and re my Arthurian theses I concur totally.

    After repeatedly beeping the driver, Pimpani said she noticed an open trailer was attached to the ute – with what appeared to be a horse and pony secured with straps.

    Some people online have suggested they could have been horse statues, but Pimpani said she saw the animals trying to move their legs when she drove beside the ute.

    “Honestly, I think everyone was freaking out,” Pimpani told 7NEWS.com.au.

    “They were strapped in so tight and the bigger one had ropes tied to its legs.”

    Photographs show the horses tied to each other and secured to trailer with straps as the ute headed across the Bolte Bridge in the left lane.

    The incident is being investigated to determine if the horses were live animals.

    Pimpani said other drivers were beeping the ute after seeing what she believed were live horses, but the driver continued on

    All votes are equal.

    Comrades.

    Thanks Steve

    I think Dot (Frank) does have a point with the Q connection however, the link to Lauren McKee is pretty compelling and the name of the Sidwell kid if it checks out is pretty thought provoking

    I’m curious if she does get all her info from QAnon (Ok Ok) or does have other sources to do her own investigative work. I’m still trying to work that out

    PS I would have liked to seen Jason C give Dinesh more time than just 4 minutes

    It certainly is if you’re a woman who has never – and will never – fight in an actual battle.
    “Brigadier” Coyle has exactly the same war experience as Molly Meldrum or the Yellow Wiggle.

    Another keyboard warrior who doesn’t know what he is talking about.

    Susan Coyle was commander of the Australian forces in Afghanistan in 2014-15 and was the target of a Taliban car bomb in Kabul. She had over 18 months active service in the Middle East. She has become a Brigadier on merit, she is a bloody good soldier and officer.

    Her husband is a good mate of mine, he is a colonel in the engineering corps and is very proud of her achievements.

    On the topic of honorary doctorates…. In 1974 John Guise, undoubtedly an honourable man (I knew his neice Aivu), was awarded a doctorate by the UPNG. On his office being asked how he should be referred to, came the reply: “Dr Guise does not care how you refer to him”.

  236. Have you read my Quadrant article yet (September 2018 in the magazine, now online)?

    I did read it but not carefully enough.

    Theresa May is under pressure from senior MPs over her decision to ignore national security concerns and allow Chinese firm Huawei to supply parts for Britain’s 5G rollout.

    She could hardly do otherwise, given her Chancellor of the Exchequer is about to visit China to kiss Emperor Xi’s ring and sign up to the Belt and Road as a stabilizer for post-Brexit trade.

    Without blushing, CGTN, one of China’s official mouthpieces notes:

    Landmark milestones such as British firms securing two million pounds of commercial deals at the first China International Import Expo within a mere six days and Standard Chartered Bank (China) receiving a domestic fund custody license are just examples of British firms gaining immense opportunities.

    That may shed light on British Prime Minister Theresa May’s behaviors to treasure China-Britain relations which may in large part offset the negative impacts brought by the Brexit talks and Brexit itself, as well as bolster its clout in the international arena as a major power after the country gets divorced from the EU.

    As May put it, “My ambition is that Britain will be a global leader in free trade.” President Xi Jinping also clearly stated at the 2017 World Economic Forum that China will unswervingly develop global free trade and investment, and in the meantime stand visibly against protectionism.

    Great Britain joins major powers Djibouti, Nigeria, Ethiopia and Sudan.
    Failed state.
