    Doesn’t it all sound a bit fishy?
    Here’s a flu virus that kills old people just like all flu’s do.

    The percentage killed is no higher than normal flu’s.
    Something about this seems a bit man made global warming scaremongering.
    I’m admitting I could be wrong but the body count, not the infection rate seems more important to me.
    Who will really lose out if a virus is exaggerated to pandemic state, which kills no more than the average
    flu.

    The whole world and especially China need to kill the USA’s economic miracle quick smart and before the next election.

    is it a desperate act by socialists to bring on a world wide, panic induced depression that China can easily rebound from?
    One that the USA, Australia and others who have relied too heavily on the Ch inks, suffering later, will not be able to?
    Look at the UN’s global warming scare and it’s massive scam of complete bullshit.
    Can you then dismiss my conspiracy theory that easily?
    My take is that yes, a virus got out , one they had been studying, and it took the ch inks by surprise, but then the western left wing media saw the value in it, good for selling papers and really good if it brings down Trump, and so they are going for it, and governments like ours love it as well.
    It gets them out of so much economic blame, and empowers them more, and if they can take down Trump things might get back to the trajectory of heading toward that global 1984 utopia.
    Just a thought.

    It’s interesting how there’s been no real spread in Australia. Our 9 or so cases were all imported I think.

    ..
    … no real detected spread in Australia. Our 9 or so detected cases were all imported…

    ..
    Nope.
    The numbers of people killed by various severities of influenza are a known thing and the health system and emergency departments in particular are staffed and resourced to deal with that within certain bounds.
    The system is carefully balanced to deal with that.
    A new virus that is not influenza, puts loads on that system, that carefully designed system in addition to the normal flu load.
    When the system overloads it isn’t something that can be either hidden completely or faked.
    Non political people, such as doctors, nurses and researchers can see the extra strain on the system.
    It appears as people showing up requiring scarce resources. Like intubation.

    If you want a conspiracy Struth I just heard Bernardi on Credlin argue that WHO issues pandemic bonds and if this virus is declared a pandemic then WHO does not have to pay out .5 billion to the bondholders mid-year. If that’s true and Bernardi is a honest man then this may be on huge con on the world. Ya know, like the UN in general.

    Can you then dismiss my conspiracy theory that easily?

    Yes. Because it’s a Chinese military biological experiment gone wrong.

    Top brass within the Iranian, North Korean and Russian heirachy are the carriers. Inspecting the Chinese incubation labs I suspect.

    Top brass within the pangolin, armadildo and aardvark heirarky are the carriers.

    Guys there is a new open thread out there

  10. Armadillo

    Arky is still picking on the Pangolins.

    If his own Sheilahs “people” stopped eating them, we wouldn’t be in this mess.

    Eating cats, dogs, bats, pangolins and monkeys was probably never going to end well. And yet, who gets the blame for it?

    Thank you for that Mick.
    Fair assessment. I didn’t know much about him, except he had long hair & that he had to be was a better than average player.
    Correct me if I’m wrong, hasn’t his post-playing career been …er… unremarkable.
    The bloke clearly has been prepared to work, & he’s kept clean – as in no crime/drugs etc.
    I’ve known, sometimes reasonably well, dozens of former Rugby League players – a couple of whom are now house guests for an extremely long stay at the Ironbar Motel.

    Late I know, but glancing through the Cat after some drinks out with some fellow Cats tonight, I have two points to raise. Firstly, thanks Cassie for being a friend and generously supporting me against yet another unwarranted attack by Johanna. I missed your comment as I had a busy day so was pleased to hear of it tonight. Secondly, I also missed that Johanna has made her usual obsessive accusation that I ‘lied’ about my first husband achieving a university medal. I made no lie. My first husband was indeed a university medalist, in fact a double medalist, at a time when such achievements were very rare in G of 8 universities – the 1970’s. The topic was initially raised here purely with regard to a discussion on autistic tendencies.

    Today I mentioned that my Asian heritage daughter-in-law is a double university medalist. It may be that is less rare these days, but she is a hard working young woman and no intellectual slouch. I mentioned her achievement because Gwen was slinging off about Asian women, putting them down in a very racist manner, which I found quite offensive when thinking of my well-mannered and clever daughter-in-law. Predictably, my mention of her achievements set off Johanna’s weird medal complex once more.

    Anyway, at this hour, at least I know a correction has been made for the record. Next time this deranged stalker goes on so insanely about medals then I will simply refer readers back to here for explication.

    Regarding the Baxter murder case. From the police investigation point of view they will investigate all aspects of his life and the actions of his wife etc to present a picture of what may have affected his thoughts that would lead to such a tragedy. Clearly he was not a nice guy to start with and he seems to have thought he was hard done by. Examining all aspects does not mean the police would be trying to justify his actions but merely to try to understand all events that might have affected his mental state before the fatal day.
    The Police Inspector said nothing wrong but was subject to a massive beat up because most who joined the pile on had not listened to all he said in his briefing.

    Plus, as our Pauline spoke about, whether the system can be improved to stop this happening again, not in the sense of provocation because bastards like this are self-starters, but whether the system could have prevented this.

    The fucking feminista narrative however only wants all men bad.

    Even if it isn’t the commies in and outside the West will use it as though it were.

  16. Des Deskperson:

    No, Cassie, I made it clear, I though, that Arndt is the victim of a political witch hunt. My interest is why she, prima facie, deliberately made things worse for herself.

    It’s fairly simple Des, sometimes one must stand and be counted.
    I believe Bettina did just that, and I agree with her.
    The copper investigating was doing the right thing.

    “Our job as investigators is to keep a completely open mind.
    “We need to look at every piece of information and, to put it bluntly, there are probably people out there in the community that are deciding which side to take, so to speak, in this investigation,” he said.
    “Is this an issue of a woman suffering significant domestic violence and her and her children perishing at the hands of the husband, or is this an instance of a husband being driven too far by issues that he’s suffered, by certain circumstances, into committing acts of this form?

    Now, I don’t know about everyone else, but women of certain personalities can and do know how to press mens buttons and are very successful at doing so.
    Come on everybody. We all know of situations where one partner is able to manipulate the other into desperation and crazy acts. This doesn’t excuse the acts the partner carries out, but it is a social phenomenon that has been with us since just about forever. Yes, the oppressed partner can leave, but often there is a very heavy price to be paid and even more so in front of the Family Court which seems to me to be quite vindictive in its decisions.
    So we drag this manipulative and vindictive behaviour out into the open – and address it – or we just wait for the next atrocity and wring our hands over it in a disgraceful display of virtue signalling.

    No need its out and celebrated as powerful and strong in the MSM.

  18. Bruce of Newcastle:

    Why are they selling gold and silver? They’re supposed to be flight-to-safety chunky bits.

    Yes, that’s a bit odd. Mind you, I was curious about the silver price going to $28 a few days ago. I normally treat silver as an industrial commodity, the price tends to lower with factory cutbacks. But perhaps a sub sector as a poor mans gold is appearing.
    What about the Indian market? They tend to have peaks during festivities.

    Uhuh.
    You go, girl.

    How can people blessed with insufficient brain cells NOT be affected by daily China-Bashing in the media and all the idiots on social media complaining China is buying everything from Big-M to Bellamy’s. If Australia doesn’t WANT to sell don’t accept the offer or sell at a lower price to an Aussie buyer… or grow the fuck up!

    Perpetrators need to have the book thrown at them. China is our #1 customer for ALL of Australia’s exports from coal to iron ore to education and tourism. Not only is this completely unacceptable but keep this going and Australia is on our way to losing EVERYTHING.

    There was $3.26 billion in total expenditure from the China market in 2010. The tourism industry potential estimates China has the potential to grow to between $7.406 billion and $9.022 billion in total expenditure by 2020.
