    It is not a “loophole”, which implies that the law was meant to apply to private land, but a drafting error means it does not.

    Exactly.

  7. dover_beach

    Australian [“]comedian[“] Hannah Gadsby has candidly revealed that she once had an abortion, claiming she ‘would have ended up dead’ if she hadn’t.

    How would she have died? Was the baby an assassin?

    The smoke would be far better for the kids than what’s in the sandpit.

    It’s good for the kids to play in the dirt. Children kept away from germs don’t develop an immunity pathogens and allergens. We found that out the hard way, when our first daughter was born we kept the house almost sterile and as a result she developed allergies once she started school.

    From CL’s link:

    Miss Phillips said she and Olly have ‘happy and fulfilled lives’, insisting this is the norm for families affected by Down’s syndrome. She added: ‘Making women carry a baby they do not want to is appalling – but pressurising them to terminate is perhaps worse.’

    The actress said the introduction of NIPT was being driven by a global industry, estimated to be worth £4.75billion by 2025.

    She told the doctors: ‘If making money out of testing that leads in most cases to termination is not a form of eugenics then I do not know what is.’

    She is having it both ways. What these mothers are obviously doing is choosing not to have a baby with Down’s. You can’t at once decry women being denied an abortion because they don’t want the baby for any reason, but decry women choosing not to have Down’s babies or the doctors that facilitate this through testing. It is absurd to argue that killing babies in utero generally is fine, but killing babies in utero because they are X or Y or Z is wrong. Yet here we are.

  19. Arky

    I’m a petty little man.
    Sorry.

  20. dover_beach

    ‘Making women carry a baby they do not want to is appalling

    No, no, what is appalling is a mother not wanting her baby. We wouldn’t think it appalling if we made a mother of a 3-year-old child look after her child. In fact, we think she is obliged to as a matter of law and morals.

  21. Ƶĩppʯ (ȊꞪꞨV)

    She added: ‘Making women carry a baby they do not want to is appalling

    but forcing a man to pay for baby he doesn’t want for 18 years is progressive enlightenment.

  24. C.L.

    Indeed. Phillips does some good with this advocacy but her polemical schema is fatally flawed.
    There is nothing remotely “appalling” about requiring pregnant women to have their children.

  25. Bruce of Newcastle

    Oh noes! We’re about to be buried in garbage.

    The Western world’s trash crisis is about to get very, very real

    This is the ugly consequence of the green economy and the urge to recycle. The damage that is being done has become increasingly clear as Asian countries have moved to put an end to the trade in waste. A bans on plastic straws in Canada is a gesture to make it look as if politicians are doing something, while avoiding the difficult decisions.

    The little brown people are revolting! How dare they not take all the Greens’ neocolonialist garbage?

    It’s fun to see articles on the carbon credits scam and the recycling scam in the same day.

  27. notafan

    My daughter is an engineer

    a really good one

    Her decision to study engineering had everything to do with her strengths in mathematics and chemistry (which she didn’t get from me) and nothing to do with feminism.

    It is a great nonsense that people should take on careers because girl power rather than natural talents and inclinations.

    Yes, we should definitely force women to have abortions if the fathers don’t want to support their children.

    Arky, I come to this blog because I can do so without disclosing my identity. So do 90% of the other posters. The main reason I hide my real identity is that my personal opinions remain separate from my professional work.

    A black parolee arrested for [email protected] and bashing a white woman on the roof of his Bronx apartment building allegedly told a witness that she “deserved” the brutal attack because of slavery, according to court papers.

    “She was a white girl. She deserved it because us minorities have been through slavery,” Temar Bishop, 23, allegedly said to someone who witnessed the bloodied 20-year-old woman after the assaults, according to a criminal complaint.

    “This is what they used to do to us. This is what they did to us during slavery. They used to beat us and whip us.”

  50. C.L.

    Abrahimzadeh and his two sisters Atena and Anita have worked closely with the domestic violence sector to establish a charity that supports the needs of domestic violence victims and addresses gaps in the system.

    The family co-founded the Zahra Foundation Australia in 2015 to provide financial literacy and economic empowerment for women and children fleeing abusive homes, and helping them to create pathways into further education and employment. The foundation is named after Abrahimzadeh’s mother, who was murdered by his father in a public place.

    I’m beginning to fear Pell’s appeal has been dismissed.
    For all sane people, his case is irrefutable and therefore an easy one to expedite. If the appellant justices had found in his favour, I presume they would, by now, have ordered his release from custody. Of course, the other possibility is that his appeal has been upheld and the they are now writing the most exquisitely and laboriously crafted bullshit stories possible to exonerate the “victim,” Justice Kidd, a lame-brained jury, an inept magistrate, a corrupt police force and the Victorian justice system in general.

  65. Leigh Lowe

    I’m not old smartarse. But let’s hear your solution to the Persians. Roger has the optimistic wait until they collapse under internal pressure approach and there is no doubt a nation which resolves it’s own problems can’t blame any other country. But the problem with that approach is that what was going to happen in Algeria when they voted in the fundamentalists and France went in to boot them out.

    In anticipation of your youthful wisdom I’ll clarify my observation that picking winners and losers with the RoP as the yanks and the West have been doing for a long tragic time is a fool’s errand. There are no winners with the RoP; so you have as I have said before, 2 choices: obliteration or quarantining. And under no circumstances do you import them.

  70. C.L.

    You would think after the Irag, Afghanistan, Syria and Libyan disasters we have gained some knowledge, but nope! History always began yesterday to the chickenhawk brigade.

    I get your point but it’s equally stupid to forever write the Iraq War into every other geopolitical crisis on earth. For all the talk of a stymied majority of liberalised moderns in Iran, I’m not seeing any hard proof of their political smarts or willingness to fight. They look to be dickless wannabes. That means we need to think seriously about whether we want Shiite twelvers possessing nuclear bombs. That’s a legitimate concern and, conceivably, a legitimate casus bellum.

  71. “Please God that is the appeal is upheld.”

    I second that.

  72. notafan

    For all the talk of a stymied majority of liberalised moderns in Iran,

    Truth is they all nick off elsewhere asap and leave Iran to the peasants and the mullahs.

    The ones who do stay don’t have children (not at the rate of the peasant population either)

    I very much doubt the education system in Iran supports free thinking either.

    New Zealand Gun Control FAILS As “Kiwis” Ignore The New Bans (10 Jun)

    New Zealanders have decided to ignore the gun bans imposed on them by the government in the wake of the mass shooting at Christchurch. They have effectively nullified the law banning semi-automatic firearms and shotguns by completely ignoring it.

    Politicians are left scratching their heads and wondering why New Zealanders won’t comply with their authoritarian edicts.

    “Two months ago, Reuters breathlessly reported, “New Zealand police expect tens of thousands of firearms to be surrendered by a guns buy-back scheme.” Law enforcement authorities averred that “it could be more.” Pregnant with the expectation that gun owners would trade their firearms for cash, the political class is nonplussed by the results.

    Only 530 guns have thus far been turned in to the authorities.”

    Obviously the Kiwi-in-the-street distrusts the totalitarian left, eh Numbers?

  93. Do you think conservatives are insane Numbers?

    That’s what the research holds –

    The above list of variables is more than a little unsavory. We are talking about someone full of fear, with a poor sense of self, and a lack of mental dexterity. I always tell my students that tolerance of ambiguity is one especially excellent mark of psychological maturity. It isn’t a black and white world. According to the research, conservatives possess precisely the opposite: an intolerance of ambiguity and an inability to deal with complexity.

    The “good” news is that it’s generally mild – that excludes the Harpics*, of course.

    Life in Canberra…

    Wasn’t it Bertie Wooster who used to have a semi-permanent presence at the Drones Club.

    Droning on: noise triggers review
    ROBYN IRONSIDE

    Noise complaints from Canberra residents following the start of a drone home-delivery service have prompted a national review of the noise impact of all drone operations.

    In a move that could add another layer of red tape to the aviation industry, the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Cities and Regional Development is looking at what is already in place to deal with drone noise in urban environments and what more needs to be done.

    It follows the Civil Aviation Safety Authority’s approval for Google-linked Wing to operate a drone home-delivery service in five suburbs of Canberra.

    Permission was granted in April after a 12-month trial in Bonython and allows drones to operate within 5m of a person, and for 15 drones to be used at any one time.

    But anti-aircraft noise activists continue to lobby government about the devices, saying they have created an “outrageous and intolerable situation” in their suburbs.

    Submissions to an ACT parliamentary committee which is also examining the drone delivery service said the noise was “as loud inside the house as outside”.

    “(They were) flying at 20m to 30m directly over our backyard, making a high-pitched screaming/screeching noise measured at 85 decibels,” said a submission.

    Currently only 100 homes are eligible for drone deliveries and yesterday a Wing spokeswoman said the company had secured all the necessary permissions to operate the service.

    “We have been and will continue to work with the Australian government on its review of drone regulations to ensure our continued compliance,” she said.

    About a dozen local businesses have signed on with Wing to have food and other goods drone-delivered. Pure Gelato owner Voltan Tolgyesi said the drones were quieter than he had expected: “I personally witnessed a delivery going off and the noise of a truck driving past on the road was much louder.

    “From a business perspective it’s another means to get goods out there and I think there’s a great future benefit.”

    The national review of drone noise would consult a range of stakeholders, and was due for completion by the end of the year.

    Of course, the other possibility is that his appeal has been upheld and the they are now writing the most exquisitely and laboriously crafted bullshit stories possible to exonerate the “victim,” Justice Kidd, a lame-brained jury, an inept magistrate, a corrupt police force and the Victorian justice system in general.

    The other, other possibility is they are polishing exquisite weasel words to avoid bringing well-deserved contumely upon the “victim,” Justice Kidd, a lame-brained jury, an inept magistrate, a corrupt police force and the Victorian justice system in general.

    Their Onners will be very aware they can’t flick out a ‘Well that was all bullshit‘ verdict and then go back to business as usual in the Victorian cesspit.

    Noise complaints from Canberra residents following the start of a drone home-delivery service have prompted a national review of the noise impact of all drone operations.

    Easy answer.
    Just build wind turbines all over Canberra.
    The ACT Government will get their legislated 100% renewable energy!
    Plus the wind turbines with smash all the drones and provide Gaia-certified green droning in place of horribly capitalist Amazon drone droning.

    And the author, Mr Wiiliam Todd Schultz, PhD (of course) apparently received a BA in Philosophy and Psychology when he was 16. And a Masters at 18. And his prized PhD at 24.

    There was a special school in my town, populated primarily by Downs kids and teenagers. Every week they’d rock over to my primary school for a game of footy. Tards v Normies.

    They absolutely loved it, and so did we. One was adopted by the town’s footy teams as a mascot, and the club gave the whole lot of them free membership. One of the local cricket clubs did the same thing.

    They love running, and they’re quick. And strong! They’ll bear hug you to death if you let them.

    Only 530 guns have thus far been turned in to the authorities.”

    Patience and age aside the bottom line with the Persians is what is the threshold for doing something about them: what do they have to do to justify a reaction, without considering the extent of the reaction. Currently the Persians, have killed people, funded major terrorism, incited terrorism, blown up oil ships, attacked US military targets and sponsor the rats like hamas and Hezbollah in their attacks on Isra.l; not to mention what they do to their own people.

    The appeal judges will now that an acquittal will lead to a High Court appeal by that branch office of the Socialist Left faction known as the Victorian Office of Public Prosecutions, and that Pell’s team may also appeal of the judgement goes the other way, so they will want to have reviewed the evidence exhaustively and crafted a watertight set of arguments.

    Back from a stop-start lunchtime bicycle ride. Good stuff. First was an osprey who landed on a light pole about 30m ahead. So I stopped to watch. Straight away a crow lands next to the osprey and makes its feelings known. Not happy! Off goes the osprey with the crow in close pursuit.

    Then only about 50m further on hovering over the path was one of these, a black-shouldered kite hunting for mice in the marshy area next to the path. She circled overhead for a while, then went west.

    Another k down the path another osprey, or the same one again, comes in to land on a power pole just ahead of me. I’m a bit too close so the osprey skipped that pole and went to the next one. Bad move. As soon as she landed a pair of magpies came after her and chased her off into the distance.

    Quite likely they were two ospreys as the osprey pair nests opposite the pub at the top of the lake, in a Norfolk Island pine just across the road from the beer garden.

    And then more exotic wildlife on the return leg. It’s Thursday. Thursdays mean Sport. Sport means a gaggle of kids and three teachers trudging along the shared path. Intense cardio it ain’t but I’m sure the AFL would be interested in these sure-fire prospects.

    “Union leader John Setka’s assistant secretary, Shaun Reardon, has quit over “irreconcilable differences” with his boss relating to “personal values I will live and die by”.

    Mr Reardon emailed CFMMEU staff, officials and members on Thursday about his decision, which comes in response to Mr Setka admitting he would plead guilty to criminal offences of harassing a woman and repeatedly breaching court orders.

    Mr Reardon, until today the assistant secretary of the CFMMEU’s Victorian construction division, has been a long-term campaigner against violence against women and domestic violence.

    In the email to staff, obtained by The Age and Sydney Morning Herald, he said the decision to leave was his own.

    “I passionately and sincerely thank all officials, staff and most of all the membership for their loyalty, passion and dedication to serve this great union in protecting and advancing the lives not only of construction workers but of Australia’s broader community,” the email said.

    “I would like to clearly state that I have not been pressured or encouraged in any way to resign. Quite the opposite. It is purely a decision made with my family based on personal values I will live and die by.”

    Mr Reardon and Mr Setka have been long-term leaders of the CFMMEU in Victoria.

    So what i was saying was the Gaining Grounds should have the same rules as rugby golden oldies where the players are tackled or allowed to run for a certain distance according to their shorts colour.

    With gaining grounds though the colour of shorts could demarcate what disadvantaged group the player belongs to and if booing/shouting/hand gestures are allowed for that group of players. Though with ganing grounds the players do not seem to get tackled but drop the ball and fall to the ground making strange mast er bat ing motions with their closed fists.

    You are receiving this email because you are registered as a financial member of the Australian Conservatives political party. It contains important information about the future of the Australian Conservatives.

    Dear Peter,

    In the four weeks since the election I have been considering the electoral and financial performance of our Party.

    It has been a deliberately measured process so that any decisions emanating from the review would be free from the emotion attached to our disappointing electoral performance.

    The feedback received by many members has been appreciated and valued.

    Electoral Results

    We are all disappointed by our Party performance at the last election.

    Our candidates, members and volunteers all did their best but as a Party we received a tiny fraction of the votes we needed to be successful. We can make all the excuses in the world for the result but it is clear that many of our potential voters returned to supporting the Coalition when Malcolm Turnbull was replaced by Scott Morrison.

    Although we made it clear in the lead-up to the campaign that we were only running in the Senate so as not to be the catalyst for a change of government, our message didn’t get through.

    This is demonstrated by the hundreds of emails from Party members detailing that they voted for the Coalition first and then the Australian Conservatives in a bid to avoid a Shorten government.

    Many also said that I needed to deliberately court controversy to gain media attention during the election campaign. While that may have worked, it would have undermined the very premise of what we offered to the Australian people – a credible and principled alternative to the political fringe.

    Unfortunately steady and sensible didn’t work and it was frustrating that some single interest parties gained more votes than we did despite having next to no electoral presence or campaign resources.

    However, some solace can be found in the fact we never compromised on our principles in pursuit of political sugar hits.

    Party Administration

    Over the past two years, we have worked hard to run a professional Party to ensure full compliance with electoral law and establish a firm foundation.

    Our administrative team has done a first-rate job handling nearly 200,000 individual emails, processing tens of thousands of individual donations and assisting in election preparation.

    For a small team they have worked incredibly hard and done an amazing job.

    Many more people have contributed through volunteering their time and energy to give our Party the best chance of success.

    It is important to note that our State Directors and campaign teams have operated in an entirely voluntary capacity with each doing what they can, when they can. My sincere gratitude and appreciation for their efforts cannot be overstated.

    The Party invested considerable amounts of money to provide arguably the best campaign, communication and database technology available to give us a professional political edge. While some of these resources were ultimately underutilised or not as effective as anticipated, all our members had access to these state of the art political resources.

    None of this could have been provided without the financial generosity of our members and supporters.

    So many chipped in whatever they could to support our electoral efforts but regrettably the level of investment needed to maintain our existing personnel, facilities and technology is no longer sustainable.

    The Party’s remaining resources are now being utilised to finalise existing financial obligations prior to 30 June 2019.

    The Future

    When I started the Australian Conservatives in February 2017 the times were very different.

    Malcolm Turnbull was leading a Labor-lite Coalition into political oblivion. As they abandoned their supporter base in pursuit of green-left policies, major party politics became an echo chamber rather than a battle of ideas.

    The fact that over 22,000 people formally joined the Australian Conservatives in our first year demonstrated just how badly the Coalition were haemorrhaging supporters who wanted their enduring values and traditional principles upheld.

    However, the decision to make Scott Morrison Prime Minister truly changed the political climate and our political fortunes.

    Rather than punish the Coalition for another new leader, many Conservatives breathed a sigh of relief that a man of faith and values was leading the Liberals back to their traditional policy platform.

    There were equal measures of satisfaction and frustration, as much of the Australian Conservatives policy agenda was adopted by the Coalition.

    It was heartening to hear the government promise to ‘burst the Canberra bubble’, acknowledge immigration and taxes were too high, push back against the PC brigade and stick up for Australia’s interests over the internationalists.

    Our supporters and members cheered on those changes, leading many to return their political support to the government. While the election result was great for the country it also served as a hard-marker on which to assess the progress of our Party.

    The inescapable conclusion from our lack of political success, our financial position and the re-election of a Morrison-led Government is that the rationale for the creation of the Australian Conservatives is no longer valid.

    Accordingly, I will shortly begin the process of formally deregistering the Australian Conservatives as a political party.

    No doubt this will come as a disappointment to those who have shown so much support over the past two years but in light of the circumstances, it is the wisest course of action.

    On 7 February, 2017 I told a journalist that political success for the Australian Conservatives could be loosely described as being no longer necessary because the Coalition had returned to its traditional policy roots and would once again win back the confidence of the Australian people.

    If that happened I said, “I’ll be gloriously fulfilled and I’ll go fishing at Coffin Bay.”

    I am not quite ready for the fishing but the Morrison government victory and policy agenda suggests we are well on the way to restoring common sense in the Australian parliament. That is all we, as Australian Conservatives, have ever sought to do.

    Thank you once again for your support and I remain,

    Yours sincerely

    That QLD has a state LABOR government;
    That the Liberal government is the federal government;

    Several former members of NXIVM came forward with stories of sexual initiation rituals and being forcibly branded with both Raniere’s and Mack’s initials while part of the latter’s “slave pod.”

    Among the ugly details that emerged at trial: Raniere allegedly called one woman “Norelco” because she had no pubic hair, urged her to have an abortion as a “great opportunity to lose weight and get fit,” and shamed women he’d surrounded himself with to lose weight so he could have sex with them. Even Agnifilo acknowledged early on that Raniere used abortions a part of a desire to have sex with many women.
