    Cultural differences.

    It isn’t good enough an excuse.


    And this probably underscores why peeps are so angry about Yassmin

  2. feelthebern says:

    From the AFR today.

    As self-styled social activist Yassmin Abdel-Magied was busy making herself one of the most hated people in Australia on Anzac Day, one group of people watching on wide-eyed from the sidelines and breathing a massive sigh of relief were the good folk at Shell.

    For when she’s not using Anzac Day to crap all over the memory of Australia’s Diggers (what an inspired decision that was), the ABC presenter is in the employ of the Dutch oil and gas company – working as a well engineer on their offshore rigs.

    Or rather, she was.

    Turns out the Brisbane-based mechanical engineering graduate – and happy beneficiary of taxpayer-funded jollies around our Middle Eastern embassies – was forced to resign from Shell earlier this year when her application to have her leave without pay extended was politely declined.

    Word is that while Shell was happy for her to take an initial 12 months leave-without-pay to work at the ABC (read: develop Brand Yassmin), company policy meant it had to refuse her request to extend it. A decision which many execs in the company are now looking at as a blessing in disguise.

    The heartburn she would regularly cause the government relations team with her outspoken views on everything from climate change to refugees, the full-faced horror she would induce in the media relations team each time she took to a TED talk stage or the Q+A set are now mercifully a thing of the past. “Rolled-gold liability” was one of the choice phrases said to be doing the rounds of Shell’s C-suite when the question of how to solve a problem like Yassmin reared its artfully-scarfed head. But not anymore.​

    I got a LinkedIn message from a very excitable finance recruiter in the renewable energy sector.

    I am working for a major Renewable Energy Developer who are currently expanding in Asia & Australia. They are looking for a Finance Manager (based in Melbourne) to manage the financial and accounting affairs of the Company and its subsidiaries and affiliates… be able to prepare financial forecasts & business plan, manage the management and financial reporting for all their special purpose investment vehicles. Furthermore, you will be part of a major growing company with career trajectory.

    He described himself as a specialist recruiter in renewable energy. I must have popped up because I have “Energy” listed as an area of interest on my profile.

    I wrote back:

    “My profile says I am interested in ‘energy’. Not thieves.” And left it at that.

    Does anyone know how much money Australia has to pay to prop up all the “ruinable” solar panels and windmills?

    The Hizbees have been caught calling for the elimination of Israel.

    Palestinians: The Secret West Bank

    As Abbas and his advisors prepare for the May 3 meeting with Trump, however, thousands of Palestinians gathered in Ramallah to call on Arab armies to “liberate Palestine, from the (Jordan) river to the (Mediterranean) sea.” The Palestinians also called for replacing Israel with an Islamic Caliphate.

    The call for the elimination of Israel was made in the center of Ramallah, only a few hundred meters away from Abbas’s office. It came during a rally organized by Hizb ut Tahrir (Party of Liberation), a radical pan-Islamic political organization whose goal is the re-establishment of the Islamic Caliphate, or Islamic state.

    Maybe someone could ask YAM whether she agrees with her mentors that Israel should be eliminated?

  9. Roger says:

    Mr Macron insisted that re-establishing French borders was “a promise made of lies” which would do more harm than good.

    Macron believes there is no such thing as French culture. Of course he’s in favour of open borders.

    If the French elect him they are effectively voting for the extinction of their culture.

  10. Roger says:

    Maybe someone could ask YAM whether she agrees with her mentors that Israel should be eliminated?

    If they can find her.

    She’s not even returning the ABC’s calls, apparently.

  11. Notafan says:

    Was wondering about that FTB.

    She continues to claim to be an engineer in the present tense but hasn’t worked in the field since 2015.

    So xyz’s surmise that she was still basically on the grad program was more than correct. She was on lwp.

    Oh and I checked, turbans are sub saharan African, not Khartoum Arab and not exclusively muslim, Yassmin wore traditional hijab until 2013 at least, then culturally appropriated the turban.

  15. Tom says:

    The leftist sewer of the US legal profession has shifted the focus of its war on Fox News from trying to take down execs and anchors via spurious claims of sexual misconduct to phoney waaaycism try-ons:

    Troubles at Fox News were compounded yet again on Tuesday, with the emergence of new allegations of racial discrimination at the company coming less than a week after the ouster of the network’s star Bill O’Reilly.

    Eleven current and former Fox News employees filed a class-action lawsuit in New York against the network, accusing it of “abhorrent, intolerable, unlawful and hostile racial discrimination.”

    The lawsuit, filed in State Supreme Court in the Bronx, expands a complaint filed at the end of March by Tichaona Brown and Tabrese Wright, two black women who worked in the Fox News payroll department. In particular, the suit contends that Judith Slater, the company’s longtime comptroller, engaged in racist behavior and made racist remarks and that senior executives ignored her actions. A third Fox News employee, Monica Douglas, joined the lawsuit earlier this month. Fox News fired Ms. Slater in February.

    “When it comes to racial discrimination, 21st Century Fox has been operating as if it should be called 18th Century Fox,” the plaintiffs’ lawyers, Douglas H. Wigdor and Jeanne M. Christensen, said in a statement, referring to Fox News’s parent company. “We sincerely hope the filing of this race class action wakes 21st Century Fox from its slumbers and inspires the company to take a conciliatory and appropriate approach to remedy its wrongs.”

    The lawsuits contend that Fox News employees repeatedly complained about racial discrimination to current network executives but that no action was taken and that the inappropriate behavior continued.

    In a statement, Catherine M. Foti, a lawyer for Ms. Slater, called the lawsuits “meritless and frivolous.”

    Whatever it takes for the leftscum.

    Like calling smoko while being attacked by enemy troops.

  17. calli says:

    I wondered about the turban. Any observant Cats know if Carland uses the same stylist? She appears to have adopted turbans recently too.

    In the 70’s, head wrapping was a craze for a season or two. Great for bad hair days.

  18. srr says:

    notafan, like Dot, you simply take and omit select words and toss them around to make up whatever the hell shit you want, so like Dot, I see the first bit of made up shit in your post and write the rest off.

    Best you stick to just posting links to news worth reading.

    Oh sure, you are perfectly free to keep bitching and making up shit about, ‘what I really mean, and what I’m really getting at, and who I’m really having a go at’, and other Stasi-esque paranoid bullshit, just as I’m free to simply laugh to myself about all the little topics and details that trigger your outbursts of angry derangement, and what a very telling picture they paint of your true character 😉 🙂

  20. John constantine says:

    Their top level civil oligarchs boast of being in discussions with yarragrad Big Oligarch Brother, to legislate to increase the ration of country motorists to eighty kilometers an hour from the Tory ration of a hundred kilometers an hour.

    Because that is cheaper than maintaining the roads, and increases the potential for fines.

  21. struth says:

    Le Pen for her immigration and islam policies and Macron for his economic policies

    He’s a dead set socialist of the worst kind Notafan.
    If his lips are moving he is lying.
    He is doing the work of the EU and global socialism by distancing himself from too much socialism that even the French are rebelling against, by the party he was in, to continue on with global socialism as soon as he is elected.

  22. Notafan says:

    Sorry srr.

    I objected to your plain words. You slammed Archbishop Shaw in plain sight.

    Any intention of clarifying which catholic/ satanic cult the dutch princess belongs?

    I thought not.

  23. Geriatric Mayfly says:

    Those turbans look like bath towels from the House of Oscar de la Renta.

  24. candy says:

    Notafan, I think she looks quite pretty in her colourful turban, a nice face. I think she is being presented as the female Waleed Aly, by the ABC, in their efforts to support open borders etc. The nice fresh young female face of Islam.

    Australian Muslims have little appreciation of ANZAC today, but Waleed has sense enough to keep mum on the subject, knowing his job on The Project might be jeopardised if he slung off at ANZAC Day. Since this young lady is fairly young I’ll say she has been used by certain groups and got into hot water. Or she hates Australia. not sure.

    Not a law expert, but the lawyers here did not say, we allege , or we are going to court with these allegations, or “we believe” etc.
    They stated this as if it was already fact.
    Does Fox have a leg to stand on , looking at this as a defamation type scenario?

  27. Roger says:

    Australian Muslims have little appreciation of ANZAC today

    That could have something to do with how Australian troops were used decisively to inflict the greatest Western humiliation on the Muslim world: the defeat of the Ottoman empire. They have much longer historical memories than we do, fueled by such grievances. If we don’t recover from our current bout of stupidity, we will discover that you can have mass Muslim immigration or you can have ANZAC Day, but you can’t have both.

    I don’t watch The Bolt Report so does anyone know what the revealed truth is about the riots?

    The incident with the young boy did happen several days before shots were fired.
    He was taken “well inside” the compound with one of his 3 escorts with a hand on his shoulder the whole time. Cassidy had inferred the food was given to the boy at the fence.
    He was not taken to a fruit packing tent as Cassidy had claimed. It was a dormitory tent.
    A previous sexual assault of underage girls by a resident had already inflamed tensions.
    Secuirty guards arrived, took him away and questioned him. They called the parents.
    The parents told security they wanted police to investigate. That has been denied by the Police Chief.

    Hope that potted history helps.

    A few weeks back I dipped into Yassy’s book while waiting to meet someone at the Paperchain, Canberra’s, and possibly Australia’s wettest bookshop.

    She’s a ninny! She refers to Obama as ‘the Big O’, that should give you some idea of the tone and mental level of her opus.

    Give it a rest struth, you ain’t nostradamus.

    Everyone is on a spectrum and labelling people as this or that is dumb.

    All politicians are liars!

    Did you even bother to read his economic policies?

    Btw Le Pen is a Nationalistic Socialist ( but not a fascist)

    I’ve read the guys economic policies.

    Slash the civil service, cut business and personal taxes, free up labour laws.

    Those are not socialist policies.

    He might be a dumbbell cultural elite but socialist policies like a 32 hour week and a lower retirement age were coming from Melechon and Hamos

    Its beside the point that he won’t get them through and Id still prefer Le Pen.

    Its the reason people more voted for him and not those further to his left. The French aren’t entirely stupid.

    Hollande tried to relax labour laws and all he got was riots.

    France is polarized and it may well be screwed

    I live in hope.

    She is a friggin’ disgrace.
    She wants to not only play with the adults but the little upstart thinks she knows better.

    She has had a western nose job, goes out looking lighter than she actually is and is a Prime piece of highly organised and funded Muslim propaganda.
    She may be a dumb little mole but the forces using her know exactly what they are doing.

    Note again the defence of SJW is that we are all for free speech until we hear something we don’t like.

    Her speech is not free.
    I have nothing against free speech, I have a problem with paying for it.
    She gets paid by the people she hates to abuse them and their culture.
    Her profile is raised and then tweeting in her private time is off limits?
    Spare me.

    No one should want to take her free speech rights away.
    Our free speech can easily dismiss muslim hypocrisy.
    No one, other than politicians, should be paid for by taxpayers to hold a political view.
    She should lose her job, the ABC should be closed down, and any other taxpayer funded lobby group which in anyway whatsoever, dare opens it’s mouth to sway political outcomes.

  42. Nick says:

    Roger, there are also a multitude of PS jobs aimed at indigenous support, with candidates having to presumably be indigenous themselves and at minimum, have an understanding of indigenous issues.

    Given that, it would be a no brainer to replicate such ‘standards’ to anything to do with youth and Anzac Day. For example, to articulate what it meant to the individual.

    The whole Islamic agenda is to keep throwing spears at western civilisation whilst getting rich on western civilisation’s benefits.
    When the west gets tired of dealing with the spears then takeover is next. Her comments were deliberately designed to keep the softening up process going.
    She will go to ground for a month and then start agitating against Australia values again

  44. thefrolickingmole says:

    The Gurdian has a puff piece on racism and how dreamy Spike Lee is.

    It has the most deleted comments of any article ive ever seen, I think even Guardianistas are getting a little tired of the whole “white guilt” bullchip.

    I left a mild comment about the elephant in the room to test the waters. (aaaand its gone)
    Apparently crime statistics are racist.

    Raw crime stat numbers across pretty well every jurisdiction, democrat or repub appear to show African Americans overrepresented in the crime statistics.

    Somehow Spike believes every politician and lawmaker, in every state and region all police the same way?

    And for the record Im less inclined to blame race rather than the epidemic of fatherlessness, wider society will catch up if figures keep going the same way.

    I wonder if they ever think “am i really helping debate by refusing all arguements which show my position as a steaming pile of crap” or just call it a victory?

  45. Nick says:

    As much as I dislike the smug, grinning mountebank, she only has the profile she has because state funded organisations have funded, enabled and encouraged her. Look beyond Abdel-Magied and ask as LL has stated here, who, at various Governmental levels, employed her?

    Don’t sack her, just don’t employ her on the public dime again, ever.

    Last night I made a post here about Yassmin being on a panel with Julie Bishop, Lucy Turnbull, Lisa Wilkinson and Ita Buttrose to select Young Women of the Future. Organised by Women’s Weekly and sponsored by Quantas. I posted the same post at Bolt (my first since new set up) but it has not appeared although there is a passing reference to the panel in one of Bolts columns online today and in the Oz. The Women’s Weekly has apparently been asked for comment.

    The fact she could be chosen after her Q&A appearance and consulting Hizub Tabir mob online for all to see is mind boggling.

    and good move by Shell.

    Ok, you have my sympathies if you watched all of that crap; the smug bastard talking over Patrick Moore is just another facebook hero. But it goes to show that alarmism has always been media savvy. With alarmist science shot to bits smartarsery on the media and through their pet politicians is what the alarmists now use. This issue will not be resolved until there is a major epiphany by one of the meeja puppets.

    Moses, Sir Charles Joseph (1900–1988)
    by Neville Petersen
    This article was published in Australian Dictionary of Biography, Volume 18, (MUP), 2012

    Moses often acted in secret, and on his own initiative, to thwart decisions of his chairman, the commission and the government on matters that he thought were important in terms of principle. When Prime Minister Sir Robert Menzies banned the showing in 1963 on ABC television of a BBC interview with Georges Bidault—a former prime minister of France and opponent of President Charles de Gaulle—then living in exile, Moses was determined to make the public aware of the government’s action. As the ban did not apply to commercial stations, he rang Sir Frank Packer, chairman of TCN-9, Sydney, and offered him the film on the proviso that he did not disclose its source. To the government’s acute embarrassment, TCN-9 showed the interview. He had also acted decisively in 1959 when the comedian Spike Milligan asked him to support an appeal to preserve the cottage of the poet Henry Kendall at West Gosford. This unprecedented involvement of the ABC helped to save the house.

    Paywallian:

    Malcolm Turnbull has promised manufacturers the price they pay for gas will halve as he intervenes in the market and imposes tough export controls to ensure Australian businesses, families, employers and industry receive guaranteed and affordable supplies.

    The Prime Minister said 65,000 jobs reliant on gas were at risk until action was taken, as the government announces new powers that would allow Resources Minister Matt Canavan to block exports unless there are adequate supplies to meet Australia’s needs.

    “It will ensure that the price of gas in Australia is at levels comparable to that in the international market because it is a global commodity,” Mr Turnbull told ABC radio.

    “But what we’ve seen is because of these anticipated shortfalls, gas suppliers have been proposing contract prices which are really way too high. They are as much as four or five times the price per gigajoule, which is the metric, that are being offered in the United States.

    “It’ll be cheaper than the prices that are being offered now, people are being offered prices of $20 a gigajoule, it should be around half that or less.”

    While LNG exporters have contractual obligations they must meet, Mr Turnbull said the new disallowable regulation to control exports was “not a threat” but a reality. He pointed out the government had a right to protect local industry from gas shortages under Australia’s free-trade agreements.

    “They will not be able to export gas if that has the consequence of reducing the availability of gas for the Australian market,” Mr Turnbull said.

    “This is a national interest matter, it is a short-term solution to a longer-term problem. The longer-term challenge that we face is we are not producing enough gas on the east coast — that is because of bans on gas exploration and development in Victoria above all and to a lesser extent in NSW.”

    fullish article

    Why no outrage at killer jail deal?
    JUST when we think we’re getting used to being let down by the justice system, it comes up with a real beauty.

    Last week our Supreme Court delivered one of the most sickening decisions in Victorian legal history, but our outrage meters are barely registering.

    MAN WHO MURDERED WWII VET WINS SENTENCE DISCOUNT

    Ken Handford was found dead at his home near Ballarat in 2015.

    It would have been his 90th birthday, instead the veteran of WWII had his wrists and feet bound and was then stabbed in the back 13 times.

    It took five hours before he died, while he was robbed of his money and service medals.

    It was a murder full of fear, pain and helplessness. Lives don’t end a lot worse than Ken’s.

    Not even in war.

    But last week, 29-year old Jonathon Cooper was the recipient of one of the sweetest deals ever given to a killer.

    With a guilty plea to Ken’s murder, and promise to roll over on his mate, he was given a non-parole sentence of just 13 years. But with his time already served, he’ll be out in the just over 11.

    If Cooper lives to 90 himself, he’ll have more than enough time to have children, watch them have some of their own, start a career, plant some vegetables to feed himself season after season, or maybe kill a few more people.

    We’re going to give him that chance. Because no matter how terrible the crime, a quick and easy deal was done — just for telling the truth.
    Cooper must have thought he was blessed by the gods.

    And with Anzac Day this week, it all seems particularly repulsive.

    We talk about “respect” and “mateship” and the understanding of “sacrifice”, but all that won’t mean much for the story of Kenneth Handford — Aircraftman 145108 of the 39th Operational Base Unit, New Guinea.

    They’re just words used for the day. At least in the morning, before the footy starts.

    The words certainly can’t mean much to a system that ensures Copper has so much life after prison.

    It’s the kind of deal that puts families right back into the horror of the murder, and makes good cops weep with frustration.

    So where is the glowing outrage for this deal?

    Where’s the appeal from the Attorney-General?

    Where’s the cries from the Opposition who bragged about their plans for mandatory sentences?

    Where’s the rally on the steps of State Parliament?

    Where’s the noisy march for Ken?

    The problem with Ken Handford’s murder is it is just doesn’t sit in with the trends.

    We’ve become rigid with fear that a thug is going to jack our car. Or that a gang of his mates will invade our home. Or maybe take a sledgehammer to our local jewellery store.

    And we’ve never had a better focus on stopping violence against women.

    We’re familiar with the faces of the ones raped and murdered after the system assisted their killers.

    But the so-called Apex kids are not the only criminals, and unprotected women are not the only victims. And they’re not just happening in Melbourne.

    So here’s an honest question for Victoria — if a young woman was tied up in her Camberwell home and stabbed in the back 13 times by two members of the Apex gang, would there have been a deal to get the killer out when he’s 40 years old.

    And if there was, would the reaction have been as politically sedated as it is right now?

    Daniel Andrews and Matthew Guy are getting ready to compete in the biggest law and order focused election in the history of state elections in Australia.

    They’re going to talk hard about parole and bail and youth detention. They’ll be asked how the system that abandoned victims like Jill Meagher is still broken.

    They’ll need to answer for Bourke St.

    And they’ll both try to tell us they’re the ones to make us safe.

    But it doesn’t look like we’ll hear Ken Handford’s name.

    And by the time of the election, Jonathon Cooper will only have 10 more years to go.

    MAN WHO MURDERED WWII VET WINS SENTENCE DISCOUNT

    Ken Handford was found dead at his home near Ballarat in 2015.

    It would have been his 90th birthday, instead the veteran of WWII had his wrists and feet bound and was then stabbed in the back 13 times.

    It took five hours before he died, while he was robbed of his money and service medals.

    Don’t sack her, just don’t employ her on the public dime again, ever.

    Wouldn’t that be sacking her?

    This goes to my point above.
    The whole thing is corrupted by using tax payer money to influence political outcomes.

    If she is sacked now, (she won’t be) she’d just turn up again, but it would definitely be on the taxpayer’s dime.

    Socialism, and anti western activists will never be on an equal ground with the rest of us while we keep paying for them.
    They have far more sway than they should.
    Those that are calling for her sacking are absolutely correct.
    But they should also be calling for the sacking and closing down of any taxpayer funded organisation there to sway, or have the ability to sway, public opinion on any issue.
    And this theory works for every department, from police to the ABC.

    The ABC by being a publicly funded broadcaster is anathema to non biased commentary, as commentary always has the bias of the commenter inherent in it.
    It should be closed down completely .
    The police are not paid to communicate but to serve us.
    Our security service.
    The police can remain unbiased, yet are not.
    This involves removal of politically active members, not shutting down the police force.

    More Visible Dots The Media Ignore In Trump’s Strategy Against North Korea…
    Posted on April 26, 2017 by sundance

    Hours before the Trump administration briefed 100 senators today on the issues surrounding North Korea, a more consequential announcement was made.

    https://theconservativetreehouse.files.wordpress.com/2017/04/trump-xi-jinping-2.jpg

    The jaw dropping announcement (hidden by U.S. media) appears to show just how long President Trump has been putting the North Korea strategy together. However, before discussing that aspect, we review the Senate Briefing at the White House:

    Today Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, presided over a meeting meeting to brief Senators.

    The details of that meeting have not been made public because of their classification and sensitivity. The meeting lasted about one hour and discussed various financial and military options available for pressuring North Korea to end its nuclear program. (link)

    Here’s where it gets really interesting.

    For months the media have, at random, ridiculed President Trump for not distancing himself from Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte. President Duterte has been cracking down on Filipino drug gangs in his country and his approach has been severe and extremely tough. Indeed Duterte’s zero tolerance approach has been brutal.

    However, shortly after his election, December 3rd 2016, President Trump chose not to refute Duterte for his approach toward confronting the Filipino drug gangs and drug epidemic. The media were apoplectic. Duterte responded by calling President Trump “a deep thinker“. Duterte said he was greatly pleased with the “rapport” he has established with the newly elected U.S. president.

    The fact she could be chosen after her Q&A appearance and consulting Hizub Tabir mob online for all to see is mind boggling.

    Yep.

    That Q&A appearance should have been the end of the stupid twit. She was selected for that show to beclown Jacqui Lambie. Jacqui Jacqui was invited to play the part of the ignorant anti-Muslim bogan villain, while YAM had the lead role as the articulate smart young Muslim star.

    Unfortunately it didn’t go according to script. The stupid bint played lost all credibility by calling Islam “the most feminist religion”. It got worse when she got into a screaming match with Jacqui Jacqui. Not a good look for Islam at all.

    Then she really doubled down on the stupid by contacting the Hizbees for feminist advice. Really, you couldn’t make that shit up. But lo and behold, she still was selected for some other stupid committee. What are these people thinking?

    Nevertheless, I suspect this will be the end of her media career. She won’t be selected for any more committees or boards and will be quietly dropped from those she is now on. The ABC won’t fire her straight away, and may keep her for a while but in a year or so, her contract won’t be extended. Even they must now realise she is stupid beyond belief and bringing a lot of unnecessary heat.

    I suspect Trump holds a grudge against Australia because of that deal. He thinks we’re a bunch of dishonest con artists and he doesn’t like being shaken down. We’re just another country that’s had an easy ride at the expense of the US.

    Paywallian:

    The gas industry has hit back at Malcolm Turnbull’s plan to curb Queensland LNG exports if there is a domestic gas shortage, saying it is “alarming”, unlikely to ease price or supply and could actually make the problem worse, as Santos shares were hit hard on uncertainty over how the plan would work.

    Opposition Leader Bill Shorten says the Prime Minister’s “extravagant” pledge to manufacturers that gas prices will halve in the wake of tough new export controls will be “hot air” unless companies back the claim.

    Mr Shorten said Labor was “up for making sure the gas companies prioritise Australians’ needs first” but wanted confirmation they had signed up to the market intervention.

    “If Mr Turnbull’s promised Australians that gas prices will halve, I want to hear that promise from the gas companies,” Mr Shorten said.

    “Without the gas companies confirming that, what Mr Turnbull is saying is just words, just hot air. I want the gas companies, who have caused a lot of this problem because they have prioritised exporting Australian gas overseas rather than looking after Australians at home, I want these same gas companies to put their hand up and say ‘Yep, gas prices are going to halve, Malcolm Turnbull is right and that from 1 July this new system comes into place’.”

    The biggest Queensland gas exporter, the Australia Pacific LNG project, run by Origin Energy and ConocoPhillips, has criticised the extra regulation, saying it is not likely to have an impact on price or supply.

    Industry group the Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Association says the move was “almost unprecedented” and risked worsening the situation.

    APLNG chief Warwick King said the nation’s energy market challenges could only be resolved by engaging with all of the sector, not just Queensland LNG exporters

    “APLNG does not support additional regulation such as export permits, as these sorts of interventions will not increase supply or decrease price in the near or long term,” Mr King said.

    “COAG’s vision for establishing a liquid wholesale gas market that provides market signals for investment and supply can provide the platform for affordable sufficient gas supply to Australia’s east coast.

    ASX giant Santos says will seek clarification on the new export restrictions.

    For all the false flag conspiracy loonies here. The French analysis.

    ‘The chemical analyses carried out showed that it contained a solid and liquid mix of

    product, DIMP, were also identified. Modelling, on the basis of the crater’s characteristics,
    confirmed with a very high level of confidence that it was dropped from the air.
    e) The presence of the same chemical compounds in the environmental samples
    collected during the attacks on Khan Sheikhoun on 4 April 2017 and on Saraqib on
    29 April 2013 has therefore been formally confirmed by France. The sarin present in the
    munitions used on 4 April was produced using the same manufacturing process as that used
    during the sarin attack perpetrated by the Syrian regime in Saraqib. Moreover, the presence
    of hexamine indicates that this manufacturing process is that developed by the Scientific
    Studies and Research Centre for the Syrian regime.’

    If the engine cuts out suddenly, without warning, whilst running, it’s ten chances to one that it’s plug trouble.

    Now, this is a vital point to remember.

    This is the whole crux of the matter…if the egine won’t start (always supposing that there is fuel in the carburettor, and that it hasn’t run out of fuel) and shows no sign of life after three or four pulls of the starting cord, and ONLY three or four, WHIP OUT THE PLUG AT ONCE …don’t go pulling the cord.

    After two or three attempts, every time you pull the starting cord you render the engine more and more unlikely to start at all.

    If it doesn’t start after two or three attempts there’s something wrong, and pulling the cord makes matters worse and worse.

    The cause of the trouble, initially, is more than likely a speck of fouling bridging the points of the plug…if the plug is removed at once, and the points cleared, on replacing the plug the engine will start immediately.

    But will people do this?…No they won’t…instead they go on pulling the starting cord for twenty minutes or so, pumping more and more petrol into the engine, and filling the plug with oil, and then have to row home, and sometimes (if they’ve got the strength) write a furious letter to the manufacturers.

    We have no sympathy for these people at all.

    Malcolm Turnbull has promised manufacturers the price they pay for gas will halve as he intervenes in the market and imposes tough export controls to ensure Australian businesses, families, employers and industry receive guaranteed and affordable supplies.. […]

    “It’ll be cheaper than the prices that are being offered now, people are being offered prices of $20 a gigajoule, it should be around half that or less.”

    AEMO tells us that the wholesale price for gas is currently between $9:00/GJ and $10:00/GJ – up from $7:50/GJ on Tuesday.

    The $20:00/GJ figure that this festering fuckwit is using to justify price control on an industry wide scale was a one-off market offer to a small bid.

    Electricity in Australia should be in public hands and if the bureaucrats allow the price above 10c KwH they should be electrocuted.

    From the AFR today.

    As self-styled social activist Yassmin Abdel-Magied was busy making herself one of the most hated people in Australia on Anzac Day, one group of people watching on wide-eyed from the sidelines and breathing a massive sigh of relief were the good folk at Shell.

    Word is that while Shell was happy for her to take an initial 12 months leave-without-pay to work at the ABC (read: develop Brand Yassmin), company policy meant it had to refuse her request to extend it. A decision which many execs in the company are now looking at as a blessing in disguise.

    That makes for interesting reading.
    I’ll bet she got the grad job based upon “Diversidy and Inclusion” with bugger-all reference to the professional engineering group.
    I’ll also bet that the HR wymminses were probably trying to bend the LWOP rules to accommodate Ms Yassmin Tea-Towel but were reminded of the rules by the operational management.
    It’s fairly probable that the HR wymminses had played hard-ball on HR rules when it applied to others and when it suited their agenda but wanted to give Ms Tea-Towel a free pass.
    (I deduce all of this because it wouldn’t have ended up in the AFRs unless someone wanted to telegraph her a message).

    “He’s a lovely little man, and it’s lovely watching him grow through all of these things,” Aly continued.

    He explained how both kids have shown exceptional talent, with Zayd ‘teaching himself German’ and Aisha asking her parents what they should ‘do their PhD’s on’.

    ‘It’s funny how [Zayd’s] passion for sport leads him into other things,’ he described.

    Any observant Cats know if Carland uses the same stylist?

    There would appear to be a correlation between the behaviour of people of a certain religion and the covering of the head. The constant covering of the cranium obviously leads to a great deal of heat retention. The retention of this heat around the head leads to brain damage and thus malfunction. It now appears that this damage to the brain becomes permanent and is registered on the DNA of the individual concerned. The condition is then passed to the offspring. If the offspring mimic their parent’s behaviour the condition is compounded.

    Thanks and sorry for putting you through that video. I did my very best not to yell while watching it. He’s done other stuff that’s good, but that was unadulterated BS. I have linked a video of his before about solar freaking highway, which was good. Thanks for going through the trouble.

    The issue I was really interested in was the hydrogen bomb one and how it compares to the amount of energy coming in from the sun. The issue is really moot because the energy released by an hydrogen bomb is a limited amount in a limited space in a limited time, compared to global extent and yearly. It how the energy is released that’s the important issue.

    There was a letter/speech given to a mob of muslims. I forgot the name of it, but it had something to do with Islamic Exceptionalism. It went along the lines of ‘other men will want to be your friend because you are a Muslim Man, others will step aside for you because you are a MM.’

    Gas policy temporary solution: Turnbull

    Malcolm Turnbull has talked down the hip-pocket saving from his new gas policy, saying it’s aimed at temporarily shoring up vital supplies for business and industry.

    Good to see some razor-sharp policy clarity.

    The traditional next step is for Matt Canavan to be thrown under the bus.

    The dog and pony show wikipedia entry is perfect john constantine —

    is a colloquial term which has come to mean a highly promoted, often over-staged performance, presentation, or event designed to sway or convince opinion for political, or less often, commercial ends. Typically, the term is used in a pejorative sense to connote disdain, jocular lack of appreciation, or distrust of the message being presented or the efforts undertaken to present it.[1]

  222. Adam says:

    The 38-year-old spoke with TV WEEK about how his two children with wife Dr. Susan Carland – Aisha 13, and Zayd, nine – are prodigies who are both ‘high achievers’.
    He explained how both kids have shown exceptional talent, with Zayd ‘teaching himself German’ and Aisha asking her parents what they should ‘do their PhD’s on’.

    ‘It’s funny how [Zayd’s] passion for sport leads him into other things,’ he described.
    ‘Like, he’s started teaching himself German, purely because he likes German soccer players – it’s as simple as that,’ he added.

    Translation – kid’s a drooler and having serious problems with grade one maths.
