    Battle of Waterloo
    The Battle of Waterloo, which took place in Belgium on June 18, 1815, marked the final defeat of Napoleon Bonaparte, who conquered much of Europe in the early 19th century. Napoleon rose through the ranks of the French army during the French Revolution, seized control of the French government in 1799 and became emperor in 1804. Through a series of wars, he expanded his empire across western and central Europe. The Battle of Waterloo, in which Napoleon’s forces were defeated by the British and Prussians, marked the end of his reign and of France’s domination in Europe.

    CFMEU reignites demarcation disputes with rival unions

    An explosive union fight that sparked chaos, even death threats, could be reignited by rogue construction boss John Setka — and some union bosses have warned Victorians would “pay the price”.

    A union turf war sparked by rogue construction boss John Setka is set to explode as the CFMEU threatens to fight its enemies on the worksites of Victorian infrastructure projects.

    Senior Labor figures and the building industry fear major projects — including the West Gate Tunnel and the Metro Tunnel — will be delayed as the CFMEU vows to poach members from rival unions, challenging them for industrial control.

    In a major political headache for Premier Daniel Andrews, Mr Setka has promised to reignite demarcation disputes with unions which have called on the militant leader to quit.

    The Australian Workers’ Union will be at the centre of the stoush after years of battles with the CFMEU which caused chaos on projects including the Regional Rail Link and the desalination plant.

    An upgrade of the West Gate Bridge in 2009 resulted in death threats, car chases and violence as the CFMEU fought with its rivals, copping fines totalling $1.3 million.

    “It’s like the Korean War — no peace treaty has ever been signed,” a former AWU secretary said.

    The CFMEU’s Victorian branch declared this week it would “no longer recognise traditional long-held membership coverage and demarcation lines with unions that have attacked this branch”.

    Other unions including United Voice and the Australian Services Union joined the Australian Council of Trade Unions to urge Mr Setka to quit after he said he would plead guilty to a serious criminal offence.

    Electrical Trades Union secretary Troy Gray, a close ally of Mr Setka, said: “John within six months could sign up half the membership of the AWU in Victoria without raising a sweat.’

    A senior Labor source said Mr Setka’s message to rival unions was clear: “Industrial peace is over and we’re coming for you.”

    Brothers accused of Heyington police bashing allegedly shaved heads to avoid arrest

    The brothers who allegedly bashed a top cop near a train station in Melbourne’s east took extreme measures to dodge the massive manhunt for them, a court has heard.

    Two brothers accused of bashing a top transport cop shaved their heads to avoid detection after police released CCTV in their manhunt to find them, a court has heard.

    Jay Stephens, 20, and his younger brother Isaiah, 18, faced Melbourne Magistrates’ Court today with their locks gone after being charged on Monday night over Saturday’s alleged assault.

    The court heard police found the hair in their bedrooms when raiding their Malvern East boarding house yesterday.

    The pair fled out their windows but were arrested soon after and charged over the alleged attack on off-duty Transit and Public Safety Command Assistant Commissioner Chris O’Neill near Heyington train station.

    Waterloo

    On the morning of 18 June 1815, Napoleon was in the farmhouse he used as his headquarters preparing for the battle ahead.

    Observing the formidable force that Wellington had amassed, he summoned his valet.

    “It could be a tough fight today. I will wear a red shirt so that if I am wounded the men will not see the blood and lose heart.”

    At that moment, Marshal Ney, commanding the French cavalry, galloped to the farmhouse, leapt from his horse, and informed Napoleon “My scouts report that Marshal Blucher and 100,000 Prussians are marching to reinforce Wellington”.

    Napoleon called to his valet “And I will wear the brown trousers!”

    Woman dead on Zetland footpath, police arrest ex-lover

    The ex-lover of a woman who plunged five floors to her death at an inner-Sydney apartment was arrested 60km away after someone saw her and called a radio station.

    The ex-lover of a woman who plunged five floors to her death at an inner-Sydney apartment was arrested 60km away after someone saw her and called a radio station.

    Police believe 23-year-old Shuyu Zhou fell to her death from the rear balcony of an apartment tower on Rose Valley Way in Zetland just before 9pm Monday.

    They issued an arrest warrant for murder for her 29-year-old former partner Zixi Wang on Tuesday after Ms Wang allegedly fled the scene in Ms Zhou’s white 2015 Mercedes Benz.

    She initially believed police were hunting a man.

    “It was pretty freaky last night because they hadn’t caught him yet. So they told us to be careful and listen out and stuff,” the woman said.

    The two Stephens shits were vomiting and urinating on a train before they alighted and bashed the other guy. There were cctv pictures of them plastered all over the press when they were wanted, in one they were both holding their crotches. But then the stupid Australian posts the same pics with a black bar across their eyes. Demented. Wanted by police but hey don’t post a pic that may help the public identify them.
    I am so glad to read their ages. They like young arse like theirs inside but I bet the fuckwitted Vic judiciary let’s them out on bail and gives them no conviction.

    Northern Beaches restaurants top offenders for poor hygiene, contamination risk

    Cafes, delis, Chinese restaurants and sushi bars in an affluent area in Sydney are among the top food offenders named and shamed for poor hygiene — and there were multiple repeat offenders.

    Northern Beaches eateries have headlined a list of food hygiene offenders with cafes, delis, sushi bars and Chinese restaurants in the affluent area making up almost 10 per cent of all government breaches issued in the last three years.

    Elanora Chinese Restaurant at Elanora Heights was slapped with seven fines totalling $3080 in the space of just five months last year for offences, including failure to eradicate pests and incorrectly storing food.

    Avalon Chinese Restaurant received nine fines in 2018 totalling $3960 for unclean premises and pests, while Sushi Mona Vale was slapped with eight fines worth $7040 for cleanliness and food storage.

    You can’t be a priest if you are standing for political office.

    This may be the case, given that he is, in particular, an Anglican priest. The head of the Anglican is the Queen, who is,of course, the crown. As Anglican priests are paid a stipend from their parish, it could well be argued that he has, therefore, an office of profit under the crown. He would therefore be ineligible under section 44(iv) of the constitution.

    You don’t actually know whether Dutton’s a sodomite in any context, Neil.

    Either Rod the God Dog called Dutton a KY cowboy, or said he refused to help the poor and needy.

    Leaving aside the fact the reffo country shoppers were neither poor nor needy, was he really making a public media statement to mainstream Australia using an obscure Old Testament verse in a fashion completely at odds with the meaning Australians would attribute to it? I really don’t know.

    From the Paywallian. Whole article.

    Corrupt activist scholarship in gender, queer and other identity fields is training the teachers who shape our children and the executives who run business, warns visiting culture critic Helen Pluckrose.

    “This is not a problem confined to esoteric arguments between intellectuals — liberal academia has great cultural power,” Ms Pluckrose, a UK-based medievalist, said tonight in a Sydney lecture at the Ramsay Centre for Western Civilisation.

    Together with US scholars James Lindsay and Peter Boghossian, Ms Pluckrose carried out a 2017-18 sting operation on academic journals that publish “grievance studies” such as feminist geography and queer studies.

    Editors enthusiastically accepted seven papers for publication, one touting insights into male rape culture based on inspection of 10,000 dog genitals, another recycling material from Hitler’s Mein Kampf with some feminist rebadging, and a third declaring bodybuilding “fat exclusionary”.

    The Wall Street Journal discovered the hoax last October.

    The only one of the trio employed by a university — Boghossian at Portland State University — has been loaded up with disciplinary charges and may lose his job. At one point, it was suggested he could be punished for data fabrication because he had not in truth inspected 10,000 dog genitals, not even one.

    In her lecture The Rise and Whys of Grievance Studies, Ms Pluckrose traces the rot to postmodernism in the 1980s-90s, its rejection of objective truth, and a French-inspired variation which portrays society as a power struggle between victim and oppressor groups using language and knowledge as instruments of control.

    “Because of this, language is analysed in a highly paranoid and offence-seeking way,” she said.

    “Micro-aggressions are detected, racism and sexism identified.

    “Heteronormativity — acting as though heterosexuality is the default sexuality — is called out. “Cisnormativity — acting as though people usually identify with the sex their reproductive systems indicate is condemned.”

    Her comments go to controversies such as the “Safe Schools” gender fluidity campaign in Victoria and the clash between Christian footballer Israel Folau and corporate sponsors sensitised to identity politics.

    Ms Pluckrose said individual human rights had been overthrown in favour of collective guilt (as in structural white racism), and biology had been banished so that scholar-activists could pretend that gender identities and any male-female differences were “socially constructed” and therefore amenable to “social justice” campaigns.

    “Freedom of speech and viewpoint diversity are not valued within this system,” she said.

    The Ramsay Centre has struggled to find an elite Australian university willing to accept generous funding in exchange for running undergraduate degree programs in Western Civilisation.

    Sydney University linguistics expert Nick Reimer claimed in a Sydney newspaper that the Ramsay Centre “validates the worldview” behind the March 15 massacre of Muslims in Christchurch, New Zealand. Other academics have attacked the degree proposal as “racist”.

    Of course, this would also mean by using such a term unknown to hundred of thousands, if not millions of people, that Bower is also even more of a giant flog than previously demonstrated.

    I am ignorant of economics (which I admitted in my first ever post), but FMD, this can’t help anything!!

    The Reserve Bank should not drag its feet and hold back from cutting interest rates a second time next month.

    When RBA governor Philip Lowe rolled out the bank’s first cut in almost three years on June 4, he made it pretty clear it would be doing more heavy lifting.

    To be sure, in minutes of the bank’s policy meeting published on Tuesday, RBA board members “agreed that is was more likely than not that a further easing in monetary policy would be appropriate”.

    So it’s not a question of if the RBA cuts again, it is really just a matter of when.

    As economist Gareth Aird at Commonwealth Bank so aptly said: “The RBA is a dovish as it gets.”

    There is a case to wait until the August 6 board meeting as the RBA will have a fresh set of economic forecast to mull over at that point.

    While the Italians enjoyed degeneracy and political bastardry safe on their penninsula, the Germanics spent a thousand years soaking up the attacks of the mongols and the caliphate using raiding seasons with good weather to try and spear deep into Europe through the central European plain.

    After the Italians stabbed Constantinople in the back, sacking the city and taking its useful territories, the caliphate could punch even deeper into Europe.

    The Italians crowned the head of the Holy Roman Empire, which expected to rule the Germanics, in Italy for hundreds of years.

    The seventy years of peace since the mongols rode in on Stalins tanks for the rope of Berlin has been about the longest period of time between decimations for the Germanic proles.

    What does it do for genetic selection pressures for a population to be regularly decimated by the mongols and the caliphate and the italians and the french?.

    The thirty years war was worse than WW1 and WW2 combined, with 20% of the population put to the sword, the best and the brightest chewed up like 20 battles of the Somme.

    Still not as bad as the Black Death.

    The Germanics didn’t do overseas genocide to build empires in South America, didn’t sack the Byzantium that shielded Europe from the caliphate, held back the mongols and created the libertarian Hanseatic League.

    A free trade Europe along Hanseatic League lines as opposed to dogmatic theocracies, inbred royalties and game of thrones genocidal territorial grasping for lines on a map would have given us enough progress to have cured cancer and launched space travel by now.

    If the Hanseatic Germanics had have won, we could be a hundred and forty cancer free years old and off on a cruise to Mars.

    Sodom was also condemned for other sins. Bowers was using Sodomite against Dutton in that context. Dutton is obviously not homosexual

    No.
    Same as the attacks on Abbott.
    Bowers is a shifty xunt, and knew that anyone who googled “Sodom” would find reference to dicks in bums.

  137. Neil

    Of course, this would also mean by using such a term unknown to hundred of thousands, if not millions of people, that Bower is also even more of a giant flog than previously demonstrated.

    OK but use your brains. Bowers would never use sodomite in the usual meaning as a term to denigrate a person. He was using the verse in Ezekiel where Sodom was condemned for being fat and overfed and not helping the poor and needy.

    If not, what else could he possibly mean by calling Dutton a sodomite?

    War amongst the VIC Unions as Setka cant take any criticism from other Union leaders. Awesome.

    Ironically the Union he dislikes the most is the AWU which is Shortens powerbase (OK he did fudge the membership numbers a bit but which good Union leader doesn’t (ie. Tony Sheldon and Paul Howes).

    Their thug Union in a few more days is going to be headed by a convicted domestic violence aggressor (oops, that is if his conviction is actually recorded). If he stays on it damages their Union, Labor and ACTU.

    The Building Commission guys when they attend an incident with Setka and his right hand thug Reardon should make sure they have a mentally tough female at the forefront of every clash and record it all.

    Has White Ribbon announced they will decline any further association with CFMMEU or are they waiting until the guilty plea?

    So here’s a great story in our local rag, The Post, about the intrepid crime fighters over at WAPol. The article’s headline shrieks “Hunt for Wembley’s ‘Kid’ after drug raids”. There’s a photo of Michelle Roberts, the WA Police Minister, holding a shotgun and being quoted as saying “it’s heavier than it looks”.

    For fuck’s sake. Cringe. The Police Minister thinks firearms are all weird and stuff.

    Anyway, more on WAPol’s law enforcement triumph:

    A 23-year-old Wembley man was the head of a [meth] syndicate…officers smashed down the door of the man’s former Harborne Street home…the 23-year-old…was holed up in Medellin, Colombia

    He was “urged” to “return home” (he grew up in Perth) because, as Plod put it so enticingly, “there are serious drug charges coming his way”.

    Wow. Quite a carrot there.

    The law enforcement triumph continues:

    Police would not name the man or give any other details about him, but said he had been out of the country for some months.

    So let me get this straight. The coppers batter down the door of some house but are just a few months too late to capture the perp. And this is all written up as a massive law enforcement win.

    We go after the top of the tree

    Said the investigating officer, several months after the suspect has left the fucking country. Incredible job! Pats on the back all round.

    And then the Police Minister allows herself to be photographed holding a gun and saying it’s not what she expected. Maybe she thought it would be more like the plastic guns her kids played with 30 years ago.

    Keystone Kops. Noobs. It’s just humiliating. I think I despise the new ‘clean’ police force more than the old corrupt one. At least the dodgy old guard had some balls.

    the rules truly suck

    A number of pot stock bosses with Australian operations are complimentary about the Office of Drug Control (ODC) staff who have the power to make or disappear their business.

    But many have also been scathing, on and off the record, about the processes they must engage in (and have since vented to the recent review).

    The ODC assumed they’d get just 18 applications a year and staffed accordingly but were overwhelmed with hundreds, all of which require in depth — and at times overlapping — scrutiny.

    THC’s Charteris was sanguine about the time it takes to get certifications, saying it’s an 18-month to two-year process from application to permit.

    But he’d smelled the pungent odour of delay. Last year he put himself on the line as to when he believed their first licences and permits would come through — and was right.

    This year he wasn’t so keen to put a firm date on when the next round of licences and permits would come in. Indeed, in February he would only say “this year” as to when a manufacturing licence for the big, new plant at Southport, Queensland, would be awarded. They have a licence (not a permit) for a smaller factory at their Bundaberg growing site).

    Benhaim is frustrated by the red tape, saying “nearly every country in the world is more attractive than Australia”.

    Others, from Auscann (ASX:AC8) to Eve Investments (ASX:EVE), have had to replace much vaunted contracts or sit on their hands and wait as partners Tasmanian Alkaloids and THC, respectively, continue to wait for their certifications.

    The Australian love of the crushing power of the State to impose cheerful Squalor on those trying something outside the Narrative shines through on the State approval process for Australian medical marijuana.

    Everything you learned about marijuana at university may be wrong, but we mightn’t live long enough to find out with the State doing go slow on permits.

    In August 2018, Cheok become the subject of an international boycott.

    That’s when, as chairman of the highly respected Advances in Computer Entertainment Technology conference – then in its 15th year – he incorporated a “Love and Sex with Robots” strand into the event.

    And he appointed David Levy, who has controversial views on providing pedophiles with child sex robots, to the conference’s steering committee.

    Most of those on the conference’s existing committee, who were not consulted on the change, resigned in protest and the #boycottACE campaign was launched.

    Cheok responded by inviting former Trump staffer Steve Bannon to deliver the keynote address, prompting widespread outrage from academics, scholarly associations and university departments around the world.

    Cheok makes no apologies for his research into human-robot sex.

    “It’s a serious topic. I’ve had Chinese government officials come to me and say I think we may need it,” he says, referring to the growing gender imbalance in the world’s most populous country.

    “I’ll be in Shanghai later this week, they know they’ve got a massive problem.

    “(People might say it’s) crazy, evil, immoral – but I guarantee you it’s going to happen.

    The chicoms having sex selected so many female abortions, now need herds of sexbots.

    Comrades.

    Tom was right about you.
    I was just being generous.

    Bloody women.

    If Wellington had had them at Waterloo we’d have been speaking Frog and surrendering to tourists for the past 200 years.

    No, it wasn’t. It’s a story of judgement, and a glimpse of what passed for society in the ancient world.

    Fast forward to Israel re-entering the Promised Land and not much had changed.

    Being a sensitive guy , the only song recorded that has real meaning for me is Willie Nelsons , To all the girls I’ve luved before. It helps restore my confidence that at a time in my life I had a full head of hair , a dress sense and enough stamina to work hard all day and be a romantic at night. Well, thats my story.

    The Berejiklian government plans to tap into its $1.4 billion Climate Change Fund by almost $300 million in the 2019-20 year for programs to help communities and businesses adapt to and cope with impacts from climate change.

    Global concerns about climate change have lately raised doubts about future coal demand, including in Japan, the largest customer for NSW coal. Despite that trend, the government expects its budget’s health to remain dependent on mining royalties, most of which come from coal.

    More diversity is always a good thing.

    The federal government will set a new course for the nation’s refugee program by putting a higher priority on migrants from South America amid a humanitarian crisis in Venezuela.

    Immigration officials have been told to open the door to more refugees from South America in a formal directive that is likely to change the make-up of the annual 18,750 humanitarian intake from next month.

    University-educated preschool teachers who missed out on Labor’s promised taxpayer-funded pay rises are pushing ahead with a demand for large pay increases in the Fair Work Commission, with the Independent Education Union seeking salaries of up to $101,767.

    The union is demanding pay increases of up to 49 per cent for its most experienced members, arguing they should be paid the same as primary school teachers with identical university qualifications, in a case with ramifications for other low-paid, female-dominated industries.

    And, speaking of China, this is again in the news. Saw it this morning on Canadian TV.

    Gee. Let’s do business with these people. They seem quite lovely.

  194. calli

    Also in the news, a load of Canadian pork was refused entry into China due to “health fears”. No, I’m not making it up.

    I try to be a good BMO, Ted, but the immunity gene is dominant in my family.

    The real beauty of the Beatles music was it spawned a million romances between anxious young men too nervous to make the first move and shy young women who weren’t allowed to. Songs that invite you to hold her hand or tell her “you know I love you” were wonderful icebreakers and got so many past the first awkward moments. Unfortunately I came along a little too late and got hit on the head with a silver hammer. Which is a romantic gesture in some parts of Liverpool.

    First day here and have been hanging around the town and the hotel pool. No arsecheeks seen yet. If you’re interested like Cronkite is, I’ll post a comment when I head down to the beach. Cronkite was acting really weird about this yesterday. Creeped me out.

    Beatles is very gay music. Not gay as in homosexual, but just gay.

    When you first mentioned Libra, I initially thought you were trying to introduce me to a brand of sanitary napkin.

    I still think that what it will turn out to be.

    There are lots of stupid people around as you can see here at the Cat, but I very much doubt even they will use dickberg’s crypto. You can’t trust the slimeball.

    When that happens to Australian produce, the ABC et al go mega – promoting the “health fears”.

    Wretched snivels they are.

    TDS really does exist. Sitting by the pool I met the female half of a Boston couple also staying at the hotel. I got to talking to her about nothing. She then headed back to hubby who was reading the newspaper paper on an iPad. She called out, “Gene, anything?” He then began to read anti Trump junk to her from somewhere saying he should be locked up after he loses 2020. Incredible. TDS is alive and real.

    Did you get your etsa visa sorted? You can look on line to see if its approved.

    Yes, I checked, woolfe, and I’m approved. Someone approves of me.

    So I’m off to Cuba on Friday. Thanks to Notafan for the link.

    A question for Neil. Since when does a city have children?

    Clearly the heretic in Newcastle hasn’t read the rest of the chapter. It’s quite fascinating reading. It seems he has only memorised that verse.

    I’m falling over large, steaming piles of TDS everywhere here in north America. The best ones were a pair of corpulent Californian older females who instantly unfriended The Beloved because he didn’t know the Orange Man Bad password.

    The bus went vewy vewy quiet. Peace!

    The sin of Sodom is greatly misunderstood by those who usually choose to do so, it has nothing to do with homosexuality, it is all about hospitality, or more to the point lack thereof, and particularly about the condition of the heart that leads to inhospitable behaviour,” Fr Bower said in the post.

    Except for the bit about where the locals were intent on buggering the Angels of The Lord, even after being blinded.

    Dr BG, John McAfee is hanging out in Cuba.
    Remember to catch up with him.
