    mOnty and his Leftist ilk see no irony in the fact that Donald Trump Jr released his entire email exchange, and the Trump team has cooperated with this nonsensical Special Counsel… while we STILL don’t have Hillary’s 30k missing emails, and now hear that critical texts from an anti-Trump FBI agent are missing.

    The resident tax inspector wrote “Arden”.

    I, too, wrote ‘Arden’, taking the spelling in today’s $Oz:

    Newly elected Prime Minister Jacinda Arden late last year criticised Australia’s offshore processing policy and offered to take 150 men from Manus Island

    Google asserts it is ‘Ardern’.

    The National Security Agency destroyed surveillance data it pledged to preserve in connection with pending lawsuits and apparently never took some of the steps it told a federal court it had taken to make sure the information wasn’t destroyed, according to recent court filings.

    Teenage girl attacked in Frankston carjacking

    Subscriber only
    A YOUNG victim of a terrifying carjacking in Frankston last night says she was trying to save her dog as thugs stole her car after a police chase through the southeastern suburbs.

    It sparked a major manhunt and Victoria Police chief commissioner Graham Ashton told 3AW they’re close to catching the “ratbags” responsible.

    One of the men was of Caucasian appearance and wearing a white baseball cap and black T-shirt, while another was believed to have a neck tattoo.

    Vic Pol reveal ID if Caucasian.

    Talk back radio is a useful outlook for views which are suppressed by the mainstream media. But outside of 2GB most talkback is run by lefties, with a few exceptions. I ring regularly about alarmism and muslims. On Friday the hottest evah year bullshit was making the rounds with that bastard will steffan vomiting the usual crap.

    I rang 2SM and mentioned little’s will’s hypocrisy especially about bushfires with green policies about back-burning exacerbating Black Saturday. I also referred to the fact that there were at least 5 world temperature records with alarmists only referring to the hottest, NASAGISS. This objective detail was too much for DJ who defaulted to emotion by saying his vigneron mates were seriously giving it up due to the heat. I thought well played you swine: if I kept on with the facts I’d look like a heartless bastard so I said yeah it’s tough and if the greens had their way all agriculture would cease.

    I firmly believe if the MSM wasn’t pushing alarmism it would have crawled up its arse years ago.

    Palmerston Council dumped over $13.4m carpark bungle, poor governance

    An investigator’s report was released on Tuesday morning, condemning the council for a number of events, including the signing of a $13.4 million contract to develop a multistorey carpark without the funds to pay for it and no “subject to finance” clause.
    It found that decision also lacked ministerial approval to borrow money, proper planning, risk assessment or community consultation.

    It is also true that [Jordan Peterson] prescribed his daughter antidepressants from the age of 10.

    It is not true and you are full of shit, Stimpy. You are either lying or spreading lies. Peterson is a psychologist, not a psychiatrist. You of all people here ought to know the difference. Peterson does not have a medical degree, he cannot prescribe anyone any kind of prescription medication, so you may wish to consider retracting your defamatory statement.

    Anyway, what has Peterson done to attract your ire, Stimps? It seems your bile is related to him deciding not to appear on-stage alongside Faith Goldy, a not particularly notable internet figure who at the very least showed astonishingly poor judgement wrt her interactions with genuine white supremacists. But you apparently have the hots for Faith, so Peterson hurt your feel-feels. Have I got it about right?

    This is Australia;

    “AFTER a series of high-profile armed home invasions, Melburnians are resorting to desperate measures to keep their possessions safe.

    A local bollard retailer Sam Surace told Seven News that thousands of residents have had bright yellow, lockable metal poles installed in front of their driveways — in a bid to stop thieves.

    Surace said business was booming because of highly publicised crime in the area.”

    Census data shows people born in Sudan make up about 0.1 per cent of Victoria’s population — yet Victoria’s Crime Statistics Agency (CSA) data shows that 8.6 per cent of aggravated burglaries in the state are committed by Sudanese youths.

    “We’ve seen Sudanese youth become involved in aggravated burglaries,” Crisp told 7.30. “A lot of the time it’s to steal keys, so they can steal cars to commit further crimes.

    So something like .05% or less of the Vic population (Sudanese males) carry out 8.6% of all aggravated burglaries. If you drill down even more and apply these stats to say western Melbourne alone, it will be something like 50-70% of aggravated burglaries. How many thugs are we talking about here? A couple hundred? Of whom a good portion will be on visas of some kind? Are they invisible or something?

    Ahahahaha!!! Trump is god and the Democratic Party is blowing itself up:

    Democrats’ solution to the government shutdown could be as harmful to the party as the shutdown was itself.

    The war between hardline progressive and centrist Democrats inflamed by the party’s 2016 presidential primary contest has ebbed and flowed, but the agreement Sen. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., came to with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., on Monday ignited yet another bitter battle. The same grassroots progressive base that pressured Democrats into the shutdown is now irate over party leadership’s solution to it.

    After Democrats agreed not to obstruct a budget bill that came without their desired DACA protections in exchange for a firm committment those protections would soon be negotiated, progressive leaders cried foul. The upper chamber Democrats who appear to be angling to make a run in 2020 voted against the measure, likely anticipating dissatisfaction and anger from the base. Sens. Cory Booker, D-N.J., Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., Kamala Harris, D-Calif., Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., and Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., all voted no. Harris said, “The Majority Leader’s comments fell far short of the ironclad guarantee I needed to support a stopgap spending bill. I refuse to put the lives of nearly 700,000 young people in the hands of someone who has repeatedly gone back on his word.”

    In turn, MoveOn.org called the deal “terrible,” arguing it “abandons Dreamers.”

    “This is a bad, outrageous deal,” an executive director for the group said in a statement, continuing to assert “too many Democrats backed down, abandoned Dreamers, and failed to fight for their values.”

    Other progressive groups and individuals slammed the party as well.

    Energizing the anti-Trump progressive Resistance could hurt establishment Democrats as much as it hurts centrist Democrats. Establishment Democrats like Schumer will face tougher protests and primary contests, while centrist Democrats like those incumbents up for re-election in Trump-friendly states will have to answer for (and in some cases to) their increasingly radical base.

    In short, the shutdown turned out to be a mess for the Democratic Party.

    As a modicum of silver lining, grassroots frustration with the establishment provides those progressive lawmakers fighting for favor with the base ahead of the 2020 primary an opportunity to prove their bonafides. Whether turning up the volume on members like Harris and Booker and Warren is helpful to the party, however, remains to be seen.

    On the latest polls, US public support for strong border protection and ending chain migrant and the visa lottery is running at 60-80%. The DNC — and RINO obstructionists like Lindsay Graham — are fucked.

    African gang violence: Police can’t solve problem alone, Graham Ashton says

    The Australian

    @pia_akerman

    Victoria’s top cop says people are “looking in the wrong direction” if they expect police to clean up the Melbourne’s gang problem.

    Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton, who returned from leave this month to a politically charged debate on a spate of crimes linked to African youths, spoke this morning as a caller to radio station 3AW asked why police could not solve the gangs issue and protect Melburnians scared in their homes.

    “If you’re looking for police to put it to bed, you’re looking in the wrong direction,” Mr Ashton replied.

    “We’re locking ‘em up as many as we can … We’re responding more quickly than we’ve ever responded, we’re making more arrests than we’ve ever made in total so we’re doing plenty about it but you’re talking about bigger social issues than police (can) solve.

    “Generally the social conditions that we’ve got out there are such that young people are out there looking for trouble.”

    From the Oz. Watch the outrage if a group of angry citizens take action on their own initiative.

    Teenagers of no description attack and bash US doctor and his son walking home from Open Tennis in Melbourne.

    A few things…

    No description was given to media with the crime report because because the alleged assailants were already in police custody.

    All the alleged assailants are legally children, and thus cannot be identified by law.

    Witnesses were called to come forward so police could a) confirm the involvement of those in custody and b) determine exactly what happened, which then determines the nature of the charges.

    VicPol’s handling of African crime gangs (and what we do know of the offenders – e.g. the ringleader was out on bail for a previous violent offence – fits that profile) has been woeful, but in this instance they appear to have acted swiftly to apprehend the culprits and their hands are tied in regard to publicly identifying them. Given the youth crime problem in Melbourne, I would argue it is in the public interest for the ethnic background of the offenders to be published. I understand Vic’s Opposition recently proposed changes to the law to “name and shame” juvenile offenders, but PC Ashton claimed it would only spur further violence.

    All the pundits on left who claimed this was a GOP shutdown sure seemed pissed Dems didn’t hold the line on DACA to keep government closed.

    Speaking of people Stimps has the hots for, I notice that Milo MeMeMe is rather desperately trying to hitch his wagon to the Jordan Peterson Channel 4 interview by claiming ‘Jordan Peterson is getting the Milo treatment‘. Pffft, no, he really isn’t. Cathy Newman got the Jordan Peterson treatment, a tour-de-force that Milo simply isn’t capable of. And what we see in this pathetic attempt by Milo to paint Peterson as his protégé is that Milo is a show-boating lightweight who likes to pretend he’s a star, while Peterson has the gravitas of an actual star, in the astronomical sense of the word. I can see why Ben Shapiro is so contemptuous of Milo. Milo is all froth, no champagne. Shapiro doesn’t suffer such people gladly.

    Oh? So now they admit there is a gang problem ?

  42. Roger

    Ashton is right in this:

    Police are not social workers or surrogate parents.

    Police can’t force the judiciary to refuse bail and impose custodial sentences for violent offenders.

    Police can’t force the state government of the day to retrench “reforms” to juvenile justice which have given a progressive judiciary too much discretion and created a vacuum of authority which the offenders are only too happy to exploit.

    And police can’t force the Commonwealth Immigration minister to deport violent offenders where possible and stop importing more potential ones from dysfunctional cultures, i.e. shitholes.

    At the end of the day, all the police can do is arrest offenders and competently gather the evidence for the prosecutors.

    Waving to the Other Side: The Language of Poetry in Indigenous Australian Song

    ‘Poetry and song are inextricably interwoven in most Indigenous Australian traditions. Yet the poetic masterpieces found across the continent are little known outside their immediate communities, tied up as they are with the intricacies of the languages they are sung in.

    Police vehicles rammed, woman dragged along road during ‘reckless’ carjackings

    An 18-year-old woman says she was trying to save her dog when she was dragged along the road during a carjacking in south-east Melbourne, after a group of four people rammed several cars evading a police chase.
    A group of up to four people stole a car in Seaford about 7:30pm on Monday, ramming two police cars and three parked cars while getting away.
    Senior Sergeant Steve Burt said police gave up chase of the car for safety reasons.
    “The car then forced its way out onto the main road in Frankston and continued down the road at a reckless pace, causing us to terminate the pursuit,” he said.

    He said the group later pulled the 18-year-old woman from her car, before going on to steal a third vehicle.
    “Further on down the road and a bit later on after police had broken off the pursuit, a number of carjackings [including one] where an innocent girl was dragged along [by] the car,” Senior Sergeant Burt said.
    Commenting on a public Facebook post about the carjackings, a woman who said she was the victim said media reports that said she had been punched in the face were incorrect.
    “I just want to let everyone know, I wasn’t punched in the face or hurt by the two guys,” Taylor Hall wrote.
    “I was only hurt because I was trying to save my dog and got dragged by the car for about 50 metres before they hit the curb and I was flung off.”

    She also wanted to correct an apparent misconception in the community that the offenders were of Sudanese descent.

    “There is a lot of different stories going around but this is the true one. No they weren’t [Sudanese], they were two white men.”
    Police arrested a 35-year-old woman who was left at the scene of the car rammings and are still searching for the others.
    One of the offenders has been described as a Caucasian man, who was wearing a white baseball cap and black T-shirt, while another is believed to have a tattoo on his neck.
    Police said all involved are believed to have been injured in the incidents.
    “I warn members of the public if they see people who have serious head injuries or are seeking medical advice, to call triple-0 or CrimeStoppers,” Senior Sergeant Burt said.
    “Do not approach these people but call police immediately.”
    He said there was “plenty of DNA in the car” and police were confident the offenders would be caught soon.

    The significance of Australia Day or Invasion Day for Indigenous Australians, explained in Arabic

    I think it’s great idea for indigines to align themselves with moslems . It exposes who and what they are. They have a lot in common too – taxeating parasites, virtually unemployable, degraders of women, fond of young girls….

    When I started moving around the Kimberley, I used to go out to the Bungles with a fellow from East Kimberley Transport by the name of Bob Wainright.
    He started East Kimberley Tours.

    EKT.

    This was before many of the thousands of year old paintings were there, on the very soft crumbling sandstone of the beehives.

    It was also a time when both the freshwater and saltwater people of the Kimberley openly admitted to not knowing who painted the Winjinas , Bradshaws, or much of what was there.

    All we are hearing from Testes is him Monty-ing away repeating the left wingers attempts to make aboriginal culture more advanced then it was.

    The polling indicated they well and truly had a chance, but when their campaign wasn’t a disaster it was simply ineffectual.

    The fuckers were embarrassed about doing a partially reasonable job last time, including getting rid of 18,000 chair polishers who did- fuck-all and trousered up to 6 figures for their fuck-allery, and apoligised, promising it won’t happen again. With no LDP and not even a PHON ‘tard with webbed toes and a blooming romance with a sibling, I didn’t vote. They can try to fine me, however it will be suggested they perform an act which is anatomically impossible, and attempting such would be a felony.

    Of course the 18,000 are back, with many maaaates. Still waiting for the majority to dry up when the inevitable history of criminality/violence/carnal knowledge of livestock surfaces.

    Cancel the citizenship applications of these people. They can do all the campaigning for Aboriginal rights that they like back in the shitholes they crawled out of. I mean, I’m sure their concern for Aboriginals is genuine and not a short term justification used to whip up hatred of the culture of their adopted homeland while playing patsies like Pesty for chumps, right? If we deport them, they’ll maintain the rage for Aboriginal rights when they’re back in Shitholistan, right?

    I find the deportment of young girls these days to be so appalling — been to the debuts of the young gels of friends, too many young ladies dress as though it’s a slut walk, 16 year olds looking like hookers, very few dressed demurely and appropriately, walk like Bobby Fulton without a shred of awareness of how unladylike they present.

    He decided it was a good idea to let his daughter to take antidepressants from the age of 10.

    He may have done that because of the findings that some antidepressants increase neurogenesis. I read one study which stated that the clearest physiological sign that an antidepressant was working was the increased neurogenesis. We’ve moved on since then. I don’t think he made a wise decision and perhaps it was as very low dose. Even now we don’t understand why many antidepressants work, and large studies indicate these only work in major depression, the genuinely disabling kind where the person can’t get out of bed, the rest is largely placebo effect. It reminds me of the early claims that ADHD drugs inhibit growth, much disputed by the medical community but the evidence has stood up. In the USA the use of psychotropic drugs is eventually going to result in a number of very expensive law suits. I don’t know what is going on over there, they love their psycho meds. The country must be going bonkas.

    Good grief, Humphrey. Sneakers McGowan’s circus is pissing other people’s money against the wall faster than Emperor Barney’s and Dickhhead Dan CFMEU caliphate in fat-eastern Sudan (Paywallian):

    A crowd cap for a Big Bash League cricket semi-final at Perth’s new Optus Stadium has been scrapped following a public backlash, but the state government denies it is yet another backflip.

    A cap of 40,000 people was proposed to avoid weekday peak-hour traffic putting stress on public transport, particularly given the Matagarup Bridge is not ready for use.

    But following a public outcry and consultation with Cricket Australia, the WACA and VenuesLive, Transport Minister Rita Saffioti said on Tuesday they had created incentives to stagger people into the venue to avoid a bottleneck at the start of the match.

    It means a capacity cricket crowd of 55,000 people will be possible for the Scorchers match, more than double the often sold-out games at the WACA ground.

    The first 15,000 people who arrive before 3pm will receive a $10 food and beverage voucher, and there will also be a light show afterwards to encourage fans to stay longer to reduce public transport pressure.

    Ms Saffioti said there will also be public transport changes and discussions are continuing about possible pre-paid parking nearby.

    But she denied it was another backflip from the McGowan government, following two education backdowns.

This, of course, will serve as a great and wonderful boon to American manufacturers, something most Wall Streeters and fuckhead bloggers couldn’t care less about.

    The Directorate of Horticulture has banned all avocado exports following a severe shortage that has raised prices of the fruit to a three-and-a-half-year high.

    The average price of a 90-kilogramme bag of avocado shot up to Sh2,560 in December, making it the highest cost of the commodity since May 2014, when a bag was selling for slightly above Sh2,700.

    The Mabo decision wasn’t properly based on mainland native land occupation or usage patterns. It derived more from islander practise.

    Exactly right herodotus – Eddie Mabo was Melanesian and lived on Murray Island – a very different people from the aborigines of Australia — Murray Island met all the criteria of international law at the time of occupation criteria which included agriculture, a settled community, clear leadership hierarchy etc.– the whole thing was totally complicated by Joh Bjelke-Petersen –I think that’s why the whole thing ended up in the High Court

    ‘Show them your tits’ boss loses Fair Work appeal

    @pia_akerman

    A car dealership manager who advised a young female colleague struggling with male customers to “show them your tits” has lost a bid to appeal his dismissal.

    Phillip Parker left his role as business manager at Gary Crick’s (Nambour) in September 2016, two days after the incident involving his 21-year-old colleague.

    The sales trainee was dealing with Mr Parker to arrange finance for the customers, and told him the clients were making her feel uncomfortable and frustrated with their sexist behaviour.

    “Just show them your tits, you will be fine,” Mr Parker replied.

    Mr Parker denied saying those words, or anything similar, but Fair Work Commissioner Paula Spencer found the incident had occurred “on the balance of probabilities” and constituted “serious, hostile, derogatory” sexual harassment.

    OK stimpo, Jordan Peterson isn’t God and worshipping him is dumb. Worshipping human beings is always dumb. But in that interview he demonstrated the power of reason, logic and facts to defeat idiotic bigotry. It is sad that it should be necessary, sadder that so few can do it, but very cheering to see it done.

    Peterson is an example of how intelligent people should present themselves on mass media. Sadly all too often they dumb themselves down and in the process dumb us all down. I despair of that trend, it is particularly evident in Australia where the intellectual class(so deemed by the media. Ha!) speak to the “common man” which so simplifies the subject that they eliminates the nuances and precision that should typify an intelligent discussion. The worst refuse to express doubt.

    So now I shall return to a discussion where I don’t have to worry about that. For those so interested on Youtube there is a series, “World Science Festival”. It’s better than most. I haven’t watched many but at least they get a panel of world experts together rather than the usual gaggle of public intellectuals which all too often are more interested in self promotion than teaching.

    I was talking to a young woman who came from China about a decade ago (Australian citizen now though) and she mentioned how she can’t stand the Anglo guys with a thing for Asian women.

    She listed the seeming reasons that Asian women are viewed as meek, submissive and compliant, and petite (even childlike) and, if new here, grateful for help making their way through the differences in culture (which the guys lap up).

    I pointed out that there was one thing she had missed: Asian women also make a bigger effort to be feminine. They try to look their best. An attitude so many Australian women gave up long ago.

    The guys aren’t any better, mind you.

    I recall how ordinary westerners in Japan used to lap up the adulation in Japan too. Does anyone here know ‘Charisma Man’, from ‘The Alien’?

    Today’s WSJ editorial:

    Over in the department of futile and stupid gestures, the Senate on Monday voted 81-18 to end the government shutdown that Democrats had insisted on late last week. The politics apparently didn’t turn out to be the winner the Democrats anticipated, so they bailed out and called retreat a victory.

    The Senate and House passed a resolution to fund the government through Feb. 8. Both parties will continue to negotiate a deal on the status of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the law-abiding young adults who came to the U.S. as children. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he would bring some immigration measure to the floor, and Democrats are calling this a shutdown triumph. But the negotiations were already underway, and President Trump has said he wants a deal to legalize the Dreamers. The shutdown needlessly roiled immigration politics.

    Some 15 Democrats plus Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) voted to keep the shutdown going. They include several of the multitude of Democratic presidential aspirants in addition to Mr. Sanders : Kamala Harris of California, Cory Booker of New Jersey, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. This crew wants to tout their credentials as fighters for the Dreamers, and they’d rather have a wedge issue than a solution.

    Also voting against opening the government were Republicans Rand Paul of Kentucky and Mike Lee of Utah. This is a reminder that the 51-seat GOP majority is really a 49-seat minority given that those two might stage a protest vote at any moment for no useful purpose.

    The pressure to open the government came from Democrats running for re-election in Trump states: Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Joe Donnelly of Indiana and others. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer exposed these Senators to placate his progressive base, and then he caved on the shutdown and ended up with the approval of neither.

    Mr. Trump also helped over the weekend by keeping his tweets on message with Republicans in Congress, and not lashing out. He and Congress can now resume negotiating a two-year budget deal, particularly increased spending on defense. Congress has also bought more time to work out an immigration deal that can pass both houses, and the natural trade is legal status for Dreamers in exchange for more border security and limits on adult family migration. But for now the great news is that readers can move on with their lives without more of this fake drama.

    Wow. According to JP, he’s very recently been in touch with Cathy Newman. Wants to have a follow-up interview, longer, a “real conversation – no tricks, just a conversation…[she] can drop the persona”. He says the interview was “not a healthy victory” and needs to be further discussed. He said a colleague of Newman’s contacted him saying he would be in touch with her and do what he can to organise a follow-up, and JP would get his agents at Penguin to do the same.

    Did the ‘balance of probabilities’ include witnesses or a prior pattern of behaviour reported to management, or was it the case that Mr Parker was a less-than-compelling witness compared to the young lady’s testimony ?

    Was Mr Parker subject to prior written warnings from management or was his summary dismissal soley related to this incident ?

    The encounter was a notable demonstration of rationality versus cognitive dissonance, of an open mind versus one that was sealed shut. It cast Channel 4’s editorial standards in an extremely poor light.

    Try the near impossible: try debating with SJWs. Their principal strategy is not to win the argument but to attach a label to you, be it misogynist, racist, or whatever. I’ve tried and I have developed enough patience to just keep going at them but being extremely careful with my wording. It’s frustrating because time and again they will make inferences that clearly are aimed at labelling. The tragedy of the Peterson interview is that while he clearly won the argument, the mindset of that journalist is like a great many in the community and they would not be swayed by Paterson because they have probably already labelled him. Once they think the label is attached rational discussion is to little avail.

    BTW, I’m going to take break from watching this discussion on Time and come back to it. In these matters I am strictly a reader\listener not a thinker. I take comfort in the fact that physicists today admit that Time remains a fundamental problem.

    They are addicted to finding a label because it frees them from having to engage in thinking or justifying their own positions.

    For example testesweat here who flogs on about Aborigines is addicted to both having Aboriginals as a fetish object (blacker the berry etc) and at the same time labeling those who disagree with him as bigots.
    This frees him from examining why many Aboriginal people lead successful middle class lives while those who cleave to stupid practices are in squalor.

    His fetish means he cant engage with any possibility some practices would result in a shithouse living standard anywhere in the world, so instead he has to resort to labeling and pretending mainstream Aboriginals dont exist.

    Its a mental problem not a logic one.

    Take-home tactic from Peterson v the Boob from the Beeb-
    Don’t let the interviewer reset your terms.
    Stay polite.
    Stay on the facts.
    I remember when Tony was a good interviewee- it got framed as “relentless negativity”, but by the lord he could get his point across, and people knew just what he believed and why.

    Young men have a new defender in Jordan Peterson

    I’m not sure that’s even right, unless you’re talking about tough love. Peterson’s message to young men is to grow up, to pick up their responsibilities and walk forthrightly in the world.

    It’s an excellent message though, especially in these times when a lot of young guys are simply falling through the cracks. He’s doing the lord’s work on earth by carefully and clearly explaining how noxious modern feminism has become towards men and to fight hard against it. What he’s done in his private life etc is his own concern. However his public persona is hugely important as he’s so articulate and able to explain the huge problem.

    Think about this, the SMH has columnists like Ford railing against men in the most disgusting ways and is allowed to get away with it. In a decent world she would be sectioned. A crazed, hate-filled loon and she’s one of many.

    On this score alone Peterson is doing a wonderful job and it’s good young men go to his lectures.

    Oddly enough we have a Sen. Collins. She’s a bit nutty as well.

    And who could forget Testes old mate, Senator Bob Collins?

    What is the Sh referred to?
    Shitholes perhaps?

    Very good!

    Its population of around seven million has 37% below the poverty line.

    Gold, oil, gas, timber, coffee, cocoa, fisheries, base metals, tourism, unbelievable eco-tourism and wildlife.

    A huge endowment of natural resources and in places lovely people. In others , stone age.

    They should all be millionaires. Yet they aren’t because Whitlam gave the country over to their corrupt elites before they were able to develop and manage it themselves. We should have cut off all aid decades ago.

    How many votes have the D’rats lost as a result of the closure? How many do you think. The polls were certainly moving against D’rats in a small way, but it ended in time for them to gain a win down the track.

    Of course, I completely agree. What I’m saying though is that he isn’t a defender of young men per se. He’s not speaking for them; he’s speaking to them. And what he’s saying is resonating with them, so people assume he’s a spokesman for them. He isn’t – not from what I can see, anyway.

    He asks for bread and not for stones.
    Some corner where to lay his bones.
    We hunt him from the land instead.
    And stones we give in place of bread.
    And the fair land of Queensland free.
    Shall teach the blacks the Litany….’
