    I’m elderly at 50? Ok, twostix. You have an issue with sexuality and age, not me.

    Young people vomit in their mouths hearing 50 year olds talking about sex, this is universal.

    But my issue is one of malevolence of an old woman pimping young girls.

    You’ve never paid for it? Yeah right.

    Old policeman start thinking everyone is a criminal. Is this, that, I start wondering?

    Socialism, modern humanity’s recurring nightmare:

    Taxing the rich more – even confiscating their incomes and all corporate profits – would not begin to pay for Sanders’s & AOC’s Socialist agenda.

    The American middle class would need to be taxed 3 to 10 times more than present rates to cover it.

    The incentive to work and the ability to save would disappear.

    So, I’m an old woman pimping young girls?

    A lucrative business, but not one I wish to be involved with.

    If a woman or man chooses to provide a service to a consenting adult in exchange for money, so be it.

    You’re overthinking things, twostix. And being ageist.

    I am doubtful about mainland Chinese police already being deployed within the ranks of uniformed HK police units. Firstly HK police have powers authorised by HK law and I doubt Chinese officers have the relevant legal authority to arrest and use force etc. Then there is the problem of who would be responsable if a mainland Chinese officer used excessive force. The Chinese can just return to China and avoid any consequences whereas the local police will shoulder the blame.

    Don’t want to be rude, but this is the most pig ignorant swill i have ever read.

    Labour to give councils power to seize boarded-up shops
    Abandoned buildings could be turned into community centres in push to revive high streets

    Labour will allow councils to seize abandoned shops to give them a new lease of life as cooperatives or community centres, a policy designed to revive struggling high streets.

    Jeremy Corbyn is expected to announce the shake-up on a visit to a high street in Bolton on Saturday, calling the sight of boarded-up shops a “symptom of economic decay” which is lowering living standards.

    Under the Labour proposals, local authorities could offer properties which had been vacant for 12 months to startups, cooperative businesses and community projects.

    Parts of the world are really fucked up. In Denmark, you can take out a mortgage and get paid .5% for the privilege. As someone noted, you could take out the mortgage in Danish Kroner for several million dollars worth, buy a safe and stick it in the basement. You then take the mortgage in cash and store it there.

    How ridiculous is that.

    If a woman or man chooses to provide a service to a consenting adult in exchange for money, so be it.

    As an older woman you have a responsiblity to tell young girls who look up to you how not to ruin their lives and also to foster a society that makes doing so unacceptable and impossible.

    Instead here you are, winking and nodding at them to go and ruin their lives – who are you to tell an immature young girl what to do, I mean what do you look like, a 50 year old elder who they look to for guidance? As if! you’re the young-at-heart cool sassy aunt, not old and wise and stodgy!

    In your heart you’re pimping them, not for money, but for something else.

    Vikpol are up there with Uganda in the use of chicom secret police prole control cameras.

    KAMPALA – A forest of slender white poles topped with dark, unblinking eyes is quietly sprouting on the rubbish-strewn, potholed street corners of the Ugandan capital.

    Police say the new $126 million closed-circuit television camera (CCTV) system, supplied by Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei Technologies Co Ltd, will slash spiralling violent crime.

    Opposition leaders say law enforcement agencies are too corrupt and overburdened to use the footage to identify criminals. They worry police may use the cameras, which have facial recognition technology, to target demonstrators in violent clampdowns as an election approaches in 2021.

    “The CCTV project is just a tool to track us, hunt us and persecute us,” said Ingrid Turinawe, a leader in the Forum for Democratic Change, Uganda’s largest opposition party.

    Lucky vikpol will only ever use chicom secret police OBOR skynet to make lists of dissenters that call football umpires “Bald headed flogs”.

    I think you can break this down and look at it from a libertarian perspective. It’s true there is an exchange and that consenting adults should be able to make their own consequential decisions. But this doesn’t mean you don’t view these people as total scum.

    The major problem in having a nanny state ,rule based society that literally bans everything is that it removes a couple of very important elements. Shame and consequence.

    https://city-press.news24.com/News/fed-up-wool-farmers-fight-after-being-forced-to-only-sell-to-chinese-broker-20190702

    Khotsang Moshoeshoe, who farms mohair, was imprisoned for 16 days last year because he refused to sell his product to Stone Shi.

    “It’s simple. He has concluded no written contract with farmers. I can’t deliver my valuable commodity to him if I don’t know what I’m going to get in return,” Moshoeshoe said.
    wool

    Elias Mosuoa (49) said the three-month grace period was a farce.

    “This grace period doesn’t mean anything. The only people who will benefit from it are the Chinese. It’s outrageous,” Mosuoa said.

    “Every year, I get on average of R15 000 for my wool. With the new law, I delivered my wool last year, but I’m still waiting for my money.”

    Clementi Letlala (38) said his family had been farming sheep for their wool for 30 years, and earned between R47 000 and R53 000 a year.

    But his last cheque was only for R22 000.

    Lesotho’s minister of trade, Chalane Phori, one of the proponents of the new legislation, said Stone Shi was an “expert” in the wool field.

    “The wool was properly classified at the centre in Lesotho and then auctioned,” Phori said.

    He said the farmers should accept the new legislation.

    “We are satisfied with how things are going and will make the new law permanent after the grace period,” he said on Friday, shortly after the farmers’ protest march.

    Stone Shi, through a spokesperson, said that the farmers who took part in Friday’s protest were not real farmers and “they don’t know what they’re talking about”.

    Winston – No oxygen in volcanoes, they’re reducing (in redox terms).

    Kimberlite and lamproite eruptions also tend to be very hot, which I think is why they come up from such depths. All volcanic eruptions are due to bouyancy of hot magma. Hot air rises, so does hot magma.

    Then three years later happens, and they grow up and realise they’re simply ho’s and want out. And here comes the mental illness, support groups, radical feminism, blaming men for what they did in the first few years at university and finally spinsterhood or a lifetime of lying to some poor schmuck who has no idea how cheap he could have had it and how many did.

    This is what the Left does – these young men and women aren’t individuals, they’re whores. This is where identity politics takes you, into the NoPersonLands.
    What really shits me is the people who do this, and incidentally drag a new generation into the abyss, know exactly what they’re doing. Behind the soothing words and the gestures of friendship are the predators who see you as just another chump to be used up and exploited.

  25. tgs

    Here’s what we’re learning: our urban professional middleclass males are sterile and their daughters are mentally ill prostitutes and voluntary spinsters. They have lots of money, lots of power and those of us who bothered to have children are going to need to use these euthanasia laws to free our children (who are demographically few) from these people’s tyrannical grasp of the political system in the coming years as the childless bugman will necessarily use their ill-gotten power to enslave our children socially and economically in order to force them to maintain the wealthy bugman class throughout their old age – aristocracy style.

    The final episode in the ABC’s subtle psychological drama ‘The Heights’ ended with a bang, so to speak, last night.

    It seems that the burnt out, sad-eyed, injured-the-line-of-duty but deeply decent and caring ex cop is actually the father of the ex-druggie, loving and caring but with self esteem issues, fat blondie’s bub.

    This means that there is almost certainly a third series on the books. The Wise Old Indigenous Elder* will need all his reserves of uniquely Aboriginal insight and compassion to provide sage counsel for these sorts of developments.

    And will the cop’s Indigenous stepson, a bit awkward and adolescent but deeply decent and caring, get to root the gimp blondie, maybe easier because her cherry has already been popped by that sneering, Covington-esque whitey?
    *I’m using ‘Elder’ in the sense the MSM uses it, namely when referring to any Indigenous person over the age of 35.

    Twostix was originally talking about a report in today’s Weekend Australian about the “sex industry” (read, pimps) actively recruiting on campuses. Your tax dollars are involved:

    University students are being aggressively targeted by the sex industry, with so many working as prostitutes that support groups have become common on ­campus.

    In the wake of Michaela Dunn’s death in Sydney this week, it has emerged that sex-worker welfare organisations routinely set up stalls at univer­sity open days.

    Cameron Cox, chief executive of the government-funded Sex Workers Outreach Project (SWOT), told The Weekend Australian that prostitution was seen as an acceptable option by many university students. He said SWOT reached out to students on campus by running workshops at orientation days and doing talks at student union meetings to make sure young people had ­access to support networks.

    “I put myself through univer­sity by doing sex work and that was more than 40 years ago … It wasn’t uncommon then, and it’s not uncommon now,” he said

    The revelation Ms Dunn had been living a double life, working as a “high-end” private sex worker, compounded the horror for her family and friends this week.

    It appears Ms Dunn first registered as a sole trader on July 19, 2016, following the advice of a popular local website for freelance sex workers, privategirls.com.au.

    Still it does not answer the question why government is involved in a private matter between an investor and an association. This looks like a business deal that went sour. Where does the government come in?

    The shearing sheds the farmers are using belong to the government. The government invested a lot of money in developing this sector. The government is there to regulate and control. The government controls.

    That is why it can even control your family. It wants to know what happens to your children. The grass that the sheep are grazing belongs to the government. We are the ones who control the rangelands. We are there to take care of this sector.

    Lesotho’s turnbullite.

    Australias politicals do not have an open media to contend with like Lesotho has. Imagine an australian political orc having an interview like this about the handover of antarctica or the sale of darwin or the chicom apartment materials scam or the solar rorts or the OBOR….

    I most certainly don’t view the girls as anything of the sort.

    The girls are usually mentally ill and broken or led astray into that nightmare world. It’s terrible and tragic for everyone around them who suffers their bad decision (including them once they grow up a bit and realise what they’ve done to themselves).

    The men who visit those girls are scummy to scum.

    The cool-aunt old women who, through sewer female pop-culture encourage naive young girls who look to them for guidance and advice to Go For It! by fostering an idea that it’s inconsequential, now we’re getting to the heart of it.

    None of this has anything to do with libertarinism, by the way. Libertarianism (as sold) is only meant to concern itself with the government involving itself in the “market”. Social pressure is meant to guide people’s choices we were told. But we increasingly find out that libertarianism is an excuse to abolish all social judgement and social safety nets leaving individuals at the mercy of any other group that is more than one.

    This is how how First Nations(tm) operate once they gain independence:

    The Village Where Every Cop Has Been Convicted of Domestic Violence

    Mike was a registered sex offender and had served six years behind bars in Alaska jails and prisons. He’d been convicted of assault, domestic violence, vehicle theft, groping a woman, hindering prosecution, reckless driving, drunken driving and choking a woman unconscious in an attempted sexual assault. Among other crimes.

    “My record, I thought I had no chance of being a cop,” Mike, 43, said on a recent weekday evening, standing at his doorway in this Bering Strait village of 646 people.

    He was wrong.

    Who are these “police”?

    village police officers (VPOs) and tribal police officers (TPOs) working in Alaska villages are at least as common. Yet no one keeps track of who these officers are, where they are working, if they’ve passed a background check or if they’ve received any training.

    This is coming to remote Australian “communities” if we let it.

    I thought the Socialist Moaning Herald had gone paywalled, but apparently not. Presumably its readership dived into the low thousands when it did so – must have reversed course.

    The Adam Goodes article is hilarious.

    Apparently Adam can now give birth to children: For Goodes has undergone birth (with the arrival of his first child, Adelaide, eight weeks ago) and rebirth.

    No comment on the fact he (and presumably some female, unnamed, although it could have of course been a bloke these days) didn’t notice they were naming their kid after an imperialist queen in a colonising power. The city of Adelaide was named after Queen Adelaide, the consort of King William IV of Britain.

    The reporter is: a white woman, navigating a largely white sea of men as a cub reporter; no physical bruises but certainly some unique battles.

    Apparently Goodsie is : up before dawn on first feed duty with a bottle of expressed milk – the love bubble bursts all over Goodes’ face, softening even the furrow that deepened so noticeably on his brow during his excruciating exit from elite sport.

    Love bubble? Where did this reporter train?

    His train wreck of an end career is largely down to the AFL – that claimed social role model status but was too vague and slow in response.

    But help was at hand.
    Goodes spent five days nestled in the true country of his origins – in the Flinders Ranges, three hours north of Port Augusta, in outback South Australia – far from mobile phone reception. There, elders of his Adnyamathanha heritage led a sacred submersion ceremony to help one of their own. In the ceremony, Goodes’ size 13 feet were grounded into the red dirt of a now dry riverbed that water has travelled through for centuries.

    His feet were “submerged” in dust?

    The kid meanwhile is already up and around and giving backchat. Adelaide Vira Goodes arrived 10 days overdue, five days after the The Final Quarter premiered in June. Vira means moon in Adnyamathanha language but Nala – cheeky in that same Indigenous Australian dialect – has quickly become a pet name.

    Things are looking up business-wise in the evil white world of capitalism however. He is also an ambassador for Qantas and David Jones. Goodes is particularly positive about work he’s doing to help deepen understanding of the Uluru Statement of the Heart, and with Woolworths’ Reconciliation Action Plan committee.

    Woolies prices must have gone up if they’re paying people for this.

    Meanwhile: “One thing Aboriginal people haven’t been able to do is build wealth. Wealth in terms of picking the suburb you live in, what sort of roof you put over your head, the types of schools that you send your children to, the type of health cover that you can provide for your family,” he says.

    You can always get other people to give you stuff. Billions of dollars every year for example.

    And also people are confessing their crimes to him. He has been embraced on the street by strangers who want to thank him. “Others are coming up and apologising,” he says, “saying that they were one of the people that booed.”What does Goodes say back to them? “I say ‘Thank you. It means a lot.'”

    Looking good. Meanwhile the journo’s background is revealed. She is: a journalist and author of ROAR – the Stories Behind AFLW, a Movement Bigger than Sport (Penguin Random House).

    Of course she is.

    I cannot believe the amount of emotional energy a lot of (what were semi-normal) people used and wasted over the last three years.

    At risk of garnering more Daily Life accusations, but apropos of earlier comments, I did quite a bit of waitressing to see me thru uni on top of my independent status living allowance. Saturdays in the Pylon Lookout tea room was one of those p/time jobs and very interesting it was too. Going through Tech for the Day Matric aged 21 I was entirely self-funded and much poorer, but I was doing a 5 year course in one full time year and I really wanted to give myself a chance; so I didn’t take on any extra work apart from year beginning and year end periods. I had saved what I thought was enough from a very well paid job in advertising prior to that, covering rental of my room in a slum area, but the bread and tea bit was my solution to eke out my funds till fees were waived half way through. I didn’t exist entirely on that of course but sometimes came close so I could buy my books. These WERE tough times and of course not just for me; I don’t think it hurts to remind about that to those who did have it easier in different times. So many people really fought hard for education in those days. So spoiled today, and so is the education too. Com Schols were the best of policies. They really were earned.

    ‘Tectonic shifting’: rift opens between US Democrats and Israel

    Around 70% of US J-ws voted for the Marxists last election. Historically, the J-wish vote in the US has been strongly leftist. Now that they are being forced to own these leftist loony fascists in their midst, they are panicking like teen schoolgirls.

    “Trump has worked to portray those members of Congress as the face of the Democratic Party. But his extreme action – urging an ally to bar two members of Congress from entering – has forced many Democrats to defend Omar and Tlaib even while making clear that they do not agree with all of their views.

    “The only person who won and got what they wanted was Trump. No one else was happy about it,” said Aaron Keyak, a Democratic strategist who works with pro-Israel groups.

    “He goes over the top in attacking them, and Israel goes over the top in responding. And then you force even hawkish Democrats to jump to their defense.”

  98. BrettW

    Nick,
    Regarding your comment :

    “BrettW, you’re being a tad naive. HK Police have had briefings with their Guandong counterparts for the last 8 years or so”.

    I think you are slightly out in your 8 years. Prior to the handover in 1997 HK police were already going to be “trained” or exchange ideas with the mainland Chinese police in China. The team responsible for the Handover events all went there as part of their lead up to commanding the events. The hand picked commander of that operation famously played classical music to cover the protesters noise at one event. He later became Commissioner.

    There is nothing surprising with the HK police having briefings with Guandong police as many mainland criminals have carried out activities in HK over the years and the province is the only land border HK has. Likewise some HK criminals have fled to China. Such activities are natural for such neighbours. However in today’s environment it appears more sinister. What would be significant would be if HK police riot companies had actually trained together with riot units from China. If such a thing had taken place it would have been reported.

    Infidel Tiger,
    Perhaps you could expand upon your “pig ignorant swill” comment and let me know your thoughts. Are you saying there are mainland Chinese police operating in uniform in HK now ? If so don’t you think this wouid have been fairly significant news ? Are you also saying their possible deployment in HK does not raise some issues regarding HK law and the use of force etc ? Clearly you are an expert so must have an opinion. Don’t worry I did not take you as being rude but ignorant you certainly are.

    Seems some people are missing my point. At the present time HK has it’s own legal system and laws which are vastly different to the neighbouring province. Some of the non permanent judges of the HK final court of appeal are actually prominent judges fron UK, Australia (4 current) and Canada.

    I totally get the point that China can deploy their police or military into HK and there is not much HK can do about it. However once they start using arrest powers and using force then such actions are in my humble opinion going to pose problems with the laws as they currently stand. Naturally they can just ignore the law or change the law but I would think trashing existing laws is not an ideal look even for the Chinese. HK police have been charged for beating up protesters (caught on camera) in the recent past. Imagine if an identifiable mainland Chinese officer injures a protester using excessive force but can’t be held to account like local police would. With everybody carrying a mobile phone with a camera it is not so easy for police to get away with things as it was in the days before mobile phones.

    If the Chinese do go in then it wouid raise interesting issues regarding responsability, accountability, and command and control on the ground. There is still the issue that the protest movement has had millions in the street and that is a fairly unique crowd control problem that is hard to handle.

    Personally I think the Chinese will find going it more problematic going in than staying out. Sit it out and let the HK police do all the hard work and hope the majority get fed up with some of the tactics being used by protesters.

When I was 8, sitting in class, we had to do this mental arithmetic very fast, or what seemed to me very fast. I always got lost. And the teacher, who didn’t like me very much, moved me down a class. There was one rather insightful teacher who decided, after I’d done so badly on these tests, that he would have timeless tests. “

    Lawyer’s urgent medication request for accused CBD knifeman Mert Ney

    The lawyer for accused Sydney knifeman Mert Ney, who allegedly murdered a woman and injured another, has urgently requested pain relief and mental illness medication during his first court appearance.
    Ava Benny-Morrison, The Sunday Telegraph
    Subscriber only

    August 17, 2019 11:53am

    In court on Saturday morning, his lawyer, Zemarai Khatiz, requested urgent medical attention, including medication for his mental illness and an injury, for Ney.

    “He has had serious injuries to his leg which has been untreated,” he said.

    “He has asked corrective services over six times to give him his medication and nothing has happened.”

    Ney only spoke once, answering “yes” to his lawyer when he asked if he could hear him.

    There was no application for bail and the magistrate recommended Justice Health see Ney urgently for medication for pain relief and mental illness.

    In the end, Ney will be released into a mental health facility?

  113. Top Ender

    In other hilarious media stories, there’s this one from the ABC.

    Apparently you get $275 and two nights in a motel when you get released from jail. Who knew?

    But the tone of the article is that this is not enough. Of course.

    The victim of this situation is revealed. Jason, 49, recently got out of Grafton Correctional Centre after serving six months for assault. He asked for his last name to be withheld.

    Hardly surprising. Read on, gentle reader, to discover that Jason is extremely stupid. Apart from being in the can for most of his life, his hands are scarred from punching walls and windows.

    None of the rellies want to talk to him any more. How surprising.

    “They may as well be on the moon. I can’t ring them now ’cause they won’t give me their numbers,” he said. “I haven’t seen any of them for probably 10 years at least.”

    Jason didn’t take up the offer of the two free nights though. Instead, he went straight to the local park, where he’s been sleeping on a bench.

    This is because he didn’t want to be cooped up in a small motel room straight from a prison cell.

    Prison cells are apparently bigger than motel rooms.

    Jason is used to bumping between prison and the streets. He’s been doing it for 30 years, but now he is sick of living rough. He wants to start over.

    “I wouldn’t mind a bit of a sanctuary, somewhere to go to where I can shut the door and relax, instead of friggin’ having to sleep with one eye open,” he explained.

    Jason – and the reporter – apparently can’t see the illogical argument here. It’s safer, they think, to sleep on a park bench than in a hotel room.

    Prison though was not so bad he didn’t deliberately break laws to be sent back in:

    He said that at times he had broken the law on purpose to get back into prison.

    “I used to get in trouble just to go to jail for a roof for winter; a meal.

    “I’d deliberately go there. I’d get drunk and smash a window just to go to jail for a few months.”

    More cognitive dissonance coming up:

    Jason said he hit his rock bottom a couple of years ago when he lost his wallet and phone, and his anxiety and depression got out of hand. He spent four months sleeping on a bench in Hyde Park in Sydney’s CBD.

    “Had a big full beard and I was a homeless bum,” he said. “I played the part.”

    He used to get drunk every day, and said when he got drunk he got angry.

    “You’re not there, you’re not a human being in that state,” he said. “[It is] lonely, pretty lonely.”

    Jason ended up in hospital, where he quit drinking. He has tried to stay sober ever since. Unsuccessfully.

    But he wound up back in prison again, for assault.

    Jason has a phone and a wallet. Well, he did. Where did get the dosh from to buy the phone if he is broke?

    When he is drunk he assaults people. So he gets sober, but still assaults people.

    But in the end it all went well. For a few weeks anyway.

    New Horizons was able to set him up in a motel, which offered three months of affordable accommodation in nearby Nambucca Heads.

    If it went well, he would have been given a reference, which he hoped could lead to eventually finding a stable home.

    But after a clash with his parole officer, Jason stopped attending compulsory meetings. This violation of his parole meant he had to return to prison for four months.

    Back in the can again. In that very small cell.

    When he gets out he has plans:

    I plan on going to AA’s when I leave here as it’s helped me stay sober in the past… I’m looking forward to doing some voluntary work and getting back to church.

    You can see what’s going to happen.

    Jason will get on the grog again, thump the priest, blame God, and go back inside.

    Don’t be like Jason. Become an ABC journalist. Get paid for writing absolute bollocks.

    Although China joined CCAMLR in 2007, it explicitly did not necessitate Hong Kong (HK) to seek membership, in fact, Bliss argues this is “diplomatic deception” as HK is the base of the multinational fishing company Pacific Andes which, through its activities and that of its offshoots, is heavily implicated in the illegal fishing of Patagonian toothfish. IUU fishing is not only a security risk to the Antarctic region, it flouts the laws of the global commons and displays ill strategic intent. With global food security issues, it is likely to increase given the difficulty in prosecuting and deterring offenders. If signatory countries of the ATS do not have the political will or desire to take kinetic action against these offenders it must aim to use diplomatic power and political means to discourage the offenders, particularly China. If such behavior is not exposed, and the world continues to stand by and silently observe this exploitation by China, it will likely continue and expand into other resources, to include space based resources.

    Cuckoos. They lay their eggs in another bird’s nest for them to feed and raise. Parasitic birds.

    Now these kids are in their mid to late teens, she will start to make more contact with them, “confidentially” tell them of her actual relationship with them, and present herself as a second “mother”.

    Jeffrey Epstein Died by Suicide, Medical Examiner Finds

    Riddle me this, guys.
    Why is it that after seeing in the last three years how deep and how mischievous the influence of the deep state runs and what they can achieve (and what they almost did achieve), that people on this blog can so easily assign this as suicide based on their say so?

    The motive to have him dead is incredible,
    The resources of those who had this motive are significant,
    His cell mate is shifted out just prior and not replaced (contrary to normal practice),
    The coincidences surrounding it almost defy believe in terms of (apparent) incompetence, and
    The autopsy shows ‘unusual’ outcomes, but which don’t rule out suicide.

    What would be sufficient evidence to sway you to have doubts?
    Ask yourself this, if you wanted him dead, how would you do it so as not to end up in a cell beside his? Does your concept fit with what happened?
    This is the only way it could have been done except for assigning him a cell mate who bashes him to death. But that leaves an obvious witness who has no alternative story and can be sweated for the answer.

    Even if no one laid a hand on him, someone knew he wanted to off himself and then gave him every opportunity to do so.
    I’m far from a conspiracy theorist, but I’m not a mushroom either.

There was also a buffet: one side not simply ‘vegetarian’ as is often the case, but specifically ‘vegan’; the other side the usual Moroccan Chicken salad. We are going to see more of this; simple vegetarianism won’t cut it any more. It was the same on our cruise in the Norwegian fjiords; one evening meal devoted entirely to a ‘vegan’ experience. I think I’ve mentioned here already that Hairy was a lone objector, who demanded and received the ‘alternative’: a steak.

    The suicide of the pervert epstein is not a get out of jail card for the elites involved . It wll make prosecution harder but not impossible ,much written and photographic evidence exists ,plus the weaker culprits can be leant on with deals for lighter sentences and protection in jail ,(though that is weaker due to the suicide ) .

    The spent years getting Epstein in the dock in full awareness that they also must gain as much evidence as possible of others involved. If they haven’t got that evidence now I doubt they’ll ever get it.

    Okay, but why would the data be useful? Rory, the FNQ ice dealer would be interesting information to the Chinese?

    they build up facebook like networks of people, relationships etc. they can use to get into circles or move towards useful targets or use them to blackmail or pressure people into stealing/spying etc sometimes for money.

    The climate crisis it twice as bad as last year.

    There is empirical documented evidence to back up this claim.

    The wankers in charge of preventing it had to fly twice as much to combat it!!!

    Number of flights taken by officials from department tackling climate crisis soars
    Number of flights taken by BEIS staff rises to 4,500 from 2,700 in previous year despite carbon footprint

    The Whitehall officials responsible for tackling the climate crisis dramatically increased their domestic flights last year despite the huge carbon footprint associated with aviation.

    Officials from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) took more than 4,500 domestic business flights in the last financial year, according to its annual report. The number of flights taken the year before was fewer than 2,700.

    The department racked up the extra air miles in the same year that it asked the Committee on Climate Change to map a road towards a net zero carbon economy by 2050.

    You weren’t doxxed you dishonest piece of shit. No one believes you. Last time you said you ended in hospital with heart failure after I finished you off and you told us your wife was attempting to sue me.

    You’d better have some spare cash handy because you’ll end up in public housing if you already aren’t. Now fuck off.

    Peter, you do not need to consult anyone but yourself on this matter.

    I’m not, Mrs P.
    Big Tingle country/Busselton was always my preferred retirement option, but Marilyn set a limit: not more than ten minutes from the grandchildren. So that’s what we did.

    Now I’ve provided for them all, Marilyn’s gone, and I reckon I’m due some time and energy for myself in my twilight years.

    You and I have never meant Trump, he could be the nicest guy on earth.

    Actually I have. He’s a serious guy. You said:

    poundmetoo was really about getting Trump (it failed, he might be a pig, complete and utter berk, but he’s clean and the women were throwing themselves at him) and women whose looks had faded rationalising their past whorish behaviour as victimhood. Gandalf laid it all out with “D.R.R.”.

    He’s not and even if he was, which he’s not, that was not the point of the attempts to get him. What shits me is any concession of validity to the attempts to get Trump. There is none. So don’t polish the turd that is the get Trump industry.

    the Princess of Plop

    She’s certainly getting a heap of new sobriquets.

    We’ve already had her lampooned as a latter day Joan of Arc in the media, and here too. Others as well as me have commented on how she has elements about her of the folkloric ‘wondrous child’ who carries an aura of otherworldliness and strangeness and capacity to ‘see’ things other don’t. I was thinking on that tack today, specifically addressing to myself how much her parents were pushing her, especially her mother, and how a mass hysteria had arisen around her prognostications, and now her performances of her own personal drama.

    She’s a world phenomenon, I though. Rather like Shirley Temple, another ‘little poppet’ who danced sweetly to the adoration of multitudes who couldn’t get enough of her in the cinema. Shirley Temple had a rapacious stagestruck mother too, just like Greta. The phenomenon of Shirley Temple played on an idea of childhood innocence and charm as a balm to the awfulness of life as the rigors of the 30’s Depression and the rising tides of war threatened.

    Been reading through the hangover ‘cures.’ Got to say, many of them seem worse than the disease.

    In Janet Ivanovich’s very funny Stephanie Plum series, the cure was Coca-cola and Maccas
    burger and chips. But she was a working class goil from Noo Joisey.

    Snob that I am, I prefer the hefty Bloody Mary followed by the James Bond breakfast, with Sinatra on the jukebox.

    Just finished watching the entire Wooster and Jeeves series, starring Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry. I find Fry creepy and miscast, but Laurie is brilliant. The scripts are tight and funny. Well worth a look.

    I’m now re-watching Tinker, Tailor with Alec Guiness. I do it about once a year – it’s that good.

    and how a mass hysteria had arisen around her prognostications,

    Given time, will morph into an old crone behind a split in a rock, mumbling incoherently and hailed as the New Delphic Oracle. Shrines and temples will arise.

    And then there was Judy Garland in The Wizard of Oz. Another ‘orphan’ child having strange wondrous experiences to learn a moral lesson or two, as Hitler prepared to roll across Europe, unsettling people everywhere.

    Today Greta is the symbol of a great unsettlement, as migrants flood into the West and the doomsayers say we are all doomed, and our economies are being been turned upside down and inside out with expensive preparations to fend off unseen climatic disaster.

    Well, if they continue to espouse a culture where everybody even vaguely related to you is entitled to sponge off you forever, they never will.

    Areff – that’s bad luck. I once got pulled out of the same queue twice for bomb residue testing at the airport.

    Obviously they were looking for something. Or just wanted to stop a good looking guy and chat. You know those NSW police are like. 🙂

    Found a news report of the Doomlords love life.

    Good news ladies, hes back on the market…

    https://www.thedailymash.co.uk/news/relationships/2000-ad-reader-ruins-date-by-saying-woman-looks-zarjaz-20190817188287

    A MAN has ruined his chance to form a romantic relationship by using an invented slang word to describe his date.

    Avid 2000 AD reader and self-described ‘Earthlet’ Doomlord made the faux pas when he greeted hapless Bumble match Donna Sheridan for their date at Pizza Express in Barnstaple.

    Doomlord said: “Everything was going well until about five seconds in when I said that she was looking zarjaz. Apparently the lexicon of 2000 AD editor Tharg the Mighty isn’t as well known in Brit-Cit as it used to be.”

    Adjusting his Halo Jones T-shirt, Doomlord added: “I tried to explain to her that it’s the highest form of praise. If she picked up a prog of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic once in a while she’d know that.”

    Sheridan said: “Call me old fashioned but I like a date to start with a kiss on the cheek or a bouquet of flowers, not gibberish spouted by some editor from the planet Quaxxann. Also I prefer to read Toxic!, the short-lived rival to 2000 AD that ran for 31 issues between March 28 and October 24, 1991.”

    Doomlord added: “I call my penis the Lawgiver.”

  235. Sinclair Davidson

    That story is awesome.

  236. Sinclair Davidson

    I mean doesn’t everyone call their penis “lawgiver” . Or at least “brainbiter”. 😁

  237. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    And the 77yr old elder to which you referred last night was indeed a descendant of Maria Lock?

    Had to check the reference on Wiki, P. Maria Lock was an ‘aboriginal landowner’ from the Yarramundi tribe around Richmond, NSW – we had our first and only high school camp at Yarramundi. I have no idea if this lady was descended from her group or not. There were lots of aboriginal people living around Mt. Druitt when I lived there; mostly well assimilated. My sister married a man who had a part-aboriginal mother. Her son, my nephew who died recently, took after her in looks.

    The lady last night was not one of those ‘white ones turned black’ as they used to be called in country areas (which my Mt. Druitt still was) when welfare ramped up. I liked her; she had a slightly hostile ‘I’m from the outside looking in’ sense about her when we first started talking, one which I recognized because in these rarified scenarios I sense I sometimes get that skeptical look too. When we finished talking we had some sympatico.

  238. Peter, formerly known as Memoryvault

    I mean doesn’t everyone call their penis “lawgiver”

    Dunno about that, but “The Doomlawgiver” sounds a fitting name for a blog Doomlord.

  239. Leigh Lowe

    Doomlord added: “I call my penis the Lawgiver.”

    All good as long as it isn’t a lawbreaker.

  240. John Constantine

    Better calling it ‘Brigand Doom’ than ‘Button Man’.

    The lady last night
    She wasn’t Aunty Sandra Lee?

    P, if she was I wouldn’t tell you here.
    I respect this lady’s privacy.
    Actually, the truth is that I have no idea and no intention of finding out.
