    No doubt posted before but still the best summary I’ve read.

    Steyn: Tinker-Tailor-Clapper-Carter-Downer-Halper-Spy.

    There were two investigations into presidential candidates during the 2016 election. But, as Andrew McCarthy reminds us, these two investigations were not the same. The Clinton “matter” was a criminal investigation – because there was credible evidence that Hillary had committed criminal acts. The FBI had no such clear-cut goods on Trump. So they had to find something else:

    The scandal is that the FBI, lacking the incriminating evidence needed to justify opening a criminal investigation of the Trump campaign, decided to open a counterintelligence investigation. With the blessing of the Obama White House, they took the powers that enable our government to spy on foreign adversaries and used them to spy on Americans — Americans who just happened to be their political adversaries.

    From Areff’s link. Fucking hilarious.

    A TWENTY-STONE pet pig rampaged through the aisles of an American aircraft snuffling at food trays and rubbing its nose on passengers’ legs after it was allowed to fly first class.

    Its owners had insisted upon it accompanying them on the flight, saying that it was a “therapeutic companion pet”. They produced a doctor’s note to that effect.

    it must have caused a freaking riot.

    The pig, described as “enormous, brown, angry and honking” was allowed on to the six-hour flight from Philadelphia to Seattle after its owners, a woman in her thirties and one in her sixties, told airline officials that it was as crucial to them as a guide dog. US Airways and the Federal Aviation Authority stipulate that passengers may fly with “service animals” such as guide dogs.

    The pig was walked on to the aircraft where it was given three seats in first class, near its owners who had paid the fare. Despite attempts to strap in the animal, it became restless after take off and began sauntering through the first class cabin. “He kept rubbing his nose on people’s legs trying to get them to give him food and stroke him,” said one passenger

    Can’t stop laughing.

    As the flight landed in Seattle the pig panicked, running up and down through economy class squealing. At one point the animal attempted to enter the cockpit, charging the door. It took four cabin attendants to remove the pig from the aircraft, but once inside the terminal it escaped. It was re-captured after being pushed into a lift.

    This is the sort of thing that makes America great.

  24. Anyone know details of Archbishop Philip Wilson’s trial?
    The NSW court system is something I know very little of, except it is in some ways very different to Qld.
    I’m somewhat familiar with Qld, but have appeared in NSW only once.
    Based on my one appearance in NSW their Magistrates are far bigger wankers than their Qld counterparts (and that is saying something)

    The following facts are to be found in no end of newsmedia reports:
    The Archbishop’s trial was in Newcastle local court.
    It was heard by a Magistrate (warning bells go off loudly at this)
    The Archbishop was found guilty.

    What I cannot find, is who decided his guilt?

    Please someone tell me it was not one lone NSW Magistrate who heard the entire case, and alone decided guilt?

    Truth be known Mark, odds matter very little to me. It’s “the book” that matters. It’s getting to the stage where you are flat out trying to get someone to lay the favourite. It’s purely a percentage game. Always has been. Dwindling numbers “on track” makes it difficult to “build a book”. The book never lies. Ever.

    PETER WALES

    Evidence, Memory and the Law

    In a case that hung entirely on circumstantial evidence and which saw the veracity of ancient recollections accepted by the bench, Archbishop Philip Wilson was found guilty of covering up sexual abuse by a fellow priest. If Wilson isn’t planning an appeal, he should

    philip wilsonA New South Wales court on Tuesday found Roman Catholic Archbishop of Adelaide Philip Wilson (left) guilty of covering up sexual abuse of boys by a priest he knew forty years ago. It was alleged and accepted by the court he had been informed by two separate victims in the 1970s that parish priest James Fletcher had sexually assaulted them, and had failed to act on that information. At the time, Fr Wilson was a junior priest who shared a house with Fletcher. By failing to act at the time, and by failing to give evidence of the information he held at the time of Fletcher’s trial in 2004 and 2005, Wilson was found to have covered up Fletcher’s repeat sexual offences.

    Magistrate Robert Stone said that he had been convinced by “the number of people who have complained, and weight and quality of these people” and that “The whole of the evidence as to sexual abuse from all families provides material that a person would believe.”

    Indeed. No one doubts that Fletcher abused the complainants, or that he was a deceptive and selfish individual who betrayed his church and vulnerable people in his care, and who caused great harm to his victims. Anyone with a heart could not help but be saddened by that harm he did, and supportive of his victims, who were entirely right to feel betrayed and angry. But that was not the question.

    The question was, when was Fr Philip Wilson made aware of the abuse committed by James Fletcher against Peter Creigh? Creigh first told his family about the abuse he had suffered in 2009, more than thirty years after the abuse took place, five years after Fletcher’s trial for abuse of other boys at about the same time, and three years after Fletcher’s death. When asked why he not mentioned the abuse before, he aserted he told the priest who shared the house with Fletcher. That priest was Philip Wilson. When questioned later, a second victim, un-named at this stage, also claimed to have told Wilson about the abuse at the time it occurred in the mid-Seventies.

    At this point it may be appropriate to note the vitriol directed at Archbishop Wilson because he said, again in response to questions, that he did not make assumptions about anyone’s guilt or innocence on the basis of accusations only, but preferred to wait until the matter had been proven in court. This is, of course, the position that any sensible person, including police, journalists, and the courts, should take. But Wilson has not only been abused for this in the popular media, but was also, bizarrely, reprimanded by the presiding Magistrate in his case. Reprimanded for taking a view which is exactly the objective and careful view a magistrate would take.

    In 2009, Creigh told his family about the abuse. In 2010 he wrote to his local bishop. He and the bishop (not Wilson) then met, and the bishop subsequently wrote to Creigh outlining what support the diocese was able to offer. Two and half years later, in 2013, Creigh was interviewed by police, and alleged that he told Wilson about the abuse at the time. Another person known to Creigh was subsequently interviewed by police, and when questioned, made a similar claim. Since he was apprised of these claims in 2014, Archbishop’ Wilson’s position has been exactly the same: he insists he has no memory of those conversations ever having taken place.

    What really happened? There are a number of possibilities.

    First, the two boys, now men, have clear and accurate memories of conversations they had forty years ago with a priest whom they correctly identify as now-Archbishop Wilson. This is the position Magistrate Robert Stone says is proven.

    At the other end of the scale there is the possibility that the recollections cited in evidence were not accurate. They might, for example, have informed someone other than Wilson and, over the intervening years, seen their memories of the event distorted. Memory is a strange thing, and as cognitive psychologist Elizabeth Loftus has demonstrated, the merest word or question or suggestion can create “memories” which the person holding them absolutely believes are the accurate recall of real events.

    So again, what really happened? Further, was the court’s faith in memory misplaced. As the Sydney Morning Herald noted in reporting the guilty verdict against Wilson:

    It was a circumstantial case and the prosecution had to overcome a number of significant hurdles in their bid to prove Archbishop Wilson concealed the sexual abuse allegations against Father Fletcher.

    Not only did Crown prosecutor Gareth Harrison have to prove that Mr Creigh told Archbishop Wilson about the sexual abuse in 1976, but that Archbishop Wilson remembered it and had a belief that the allegations were true between 2004 and 2006, after Fletcher had been charged with child sex offences and before his death in jail.

    They also had to prove that Archbishop Wilson knew or believed he had information which might be of assistance in securing the prosecution of Fletcher for the sexual abuse offences against Mr Creigh.

    While I have a passing acquaintance with Archbishop Wilson, and acknowledging that my view is subjective, it is my belief that had he known of the alleged offences, he would have brought them to the attention of his bishop and not hesitated to come forward to give evidence later when Fletcher went to trial. Someone who knows the complainants may take the view that they are people of courage and integrity, and that they would not have made the claims they have unless they were sure they were true. It is entirely possible for both of these things to be correct.

    What is not possible, as I see it, is to reach the conclusion that one option is proven beyond reasonable doubt. Yet that is exactly the opinion reached by Magistrate Stone. Many will look upon his decision not as an end in itself but as the basis for an appeal.

  39. Mac Siccar: Thank you. Though I read the link to Quadrant on the previous forum.
    Good article, and thank you for posting it in full.

    I’ve also found in newspaper reports that Archbishop Wilson’s counsel was refused permission by the Magistrate to call witnesses who would verify the Archbishop had always been quick off the mark to report to the authorities clerics he suspected of sex abuse.

    I’m not familiar with the workings of NSW Local Courts, beyond the basic knowledge that most criminal cases are heard in them, and by a Magistrate.

    The more I look, the more I suspect the Archbishop was tried, & found guilty by a lone Magistrate.

    The verdict on Archbishop Wilson reminds me that opinions or memories of a person or their character can be very misinformed.
    When I was a lad a certain local priest was regarded as a hard unfriendly man by the boys and standoffish by girls and women. Many women said openly that he disliked women.
    My enlightenment as to his character came at the funeral of my teenage friend’s father, who died far too young of cancer. Father presided over the Mass but could not carry on and another priest stepped in to help.
    I said to some men at the funeral that I was surprised that Father was so cut up. They said he was a great bloke and tremendously kind to the old and sick.
    In other words, most of us did not know him at all and if asked would not accurately reflect his true character.

    Sunday mornings I buy a paper.
    There is an old guy (80) who is there every Sunday with a joke whilst checking the lotto.
    Per chance last week in passing it was noted the 80 yo used to work the coal mines in Qld.
    At this stage he became a little animated.
    “You know, when we were down there, we would find frogs alive in the coal seams. Alive.
    I dont understand why no-one was interested in this,” he said.
    “Alive, in sealed holes in the coal seam.”
    So, I said I would check it out on the internet.

    Turns out it is a phenomenon that has been reported since 16th century.
    Without any scientific explanation how it is possible.
    Seems the primary excuse is no-one of scientific repute has never observed the discovery as it happens, therefore, unable to be confirmed.

    ‘oogle search returned only 37k + results.

    Here is a few:

    Despite the notoriety of this phenomenon (more than 210 historic reports exists) no physical evidence or real toad-in-the-hole survives.
    Various hypothesis were formulated to explain the toad-in-the-hole phenomenon – the work of the devil, spontaneous generation, animals entrapped during the biblical flood or a juvenile animal grown too large to leave its prison.

    A judge-alone trial option is available in cases where the defence feels it will be unlikely to get a fair trial before a jury. The defence has to apply for it. Because the defence applied for and was granted a judge-alone trial in the case of Philip Wilson then, yes, it was “one lone NSW Magistrate who heard the entire case, and alone decided guilt?” As it happens, that Magistrate was Robert Stone, who is very experienced and very highly regarded (but maybe not by you and some others here).

    115

    Binding over to keep the peace or be of good behaviour.
    .

    (1)

    The power of a magistrates’ court on the complaint of any person to adjudge any other person to enter into a recognizance, with or without sureties, to keep the peace or to be of good behaviour towards the complainant shall be exercised by order on complaint.
    .

    (2)

    Where a complaint is made under this section, the power of the court to remand the defendant under subsection (5) of section 55 above shall not be subject to the restrictions imposed by subsection (6) of that section.
    .

    (3)

    If any person ordered by a magistrates’ court under subsection (1) above to enter into a recognizance, with or without sureties, to keep the peace or to be of good behaviour fails to comply with the order, the court may commit him to custody for a period not exceeding 6 months or until he sooner complies with the order.

    AWU bagman Ralph Blewitt cries foul as case dropped

    The Australian
    12:00AM May 26, 2018
    Andrew Burrell
    WA Chief Reporter
    Perth
    @AndrewBurrell7

    Former union bagman Ralph Blewitt says 31 fraud charges against him were suddenly dropped this week after he signalled an intention to subpoena 593 “incriminating” documents and to call Julia Gillard and a Federal Court judge as witnesses.

    Speaking outside the Perth District Court yesterday after the charges were formally withdrawn, Mr Blewitt said he was “bloody annoyed” at the collapse of the case because it meant those guilty of crimes in the long-running affair were now unlikely to ever be prosecuted.

    The court was told admissions made by Mr Blewitt to the trade unions royal commission would not be admissible in the case, which related to the alleged embezzlement of hundreds of thousands of dollars from an Australian Workers Union slush fund. The charges were withdrawn due to “no reasonable prospect of conviction”.

    Although Mr Blewitt had ­admitted his involvement in the scandal, he pleaded not guilty to the 31 fraud charges because he said he was “purely and simply a bagman”.

    The AWU slush fund was set up in the early 1990s by then union boss Bruce Wilson with legal assistance from Ms Gillard, who was his girlfriend at the time. Money from the AWU Workplace Reform Association was used to partly fund the purchase of a house in the Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy in 1993. The association was supposed to promote training and safety on construction sites.

    Ms Gillard has repeatedly and vehemently denied knowing the fund was to be used in a fraud.

    The royal commission found she had been “casual and haphazard” in her work at law firm Slater & Gordon but had not committed offences, and was not aware of Mr Wilson’s conduct.

    Mr Blewitt yesterday said he had lined up a senior barrister to run the case and had begun moves to subpoena 593 documents held by the Director of Public Prosecutions. “I suspect the reason these charges have been dropped today is that they do not want me to get access to those 593 incriminating documents that have vital information in them that would go to the heart of additional crimes committed by parties involved in the AWU fraud,” he said.

    Mr Blewitt said he had planned to call Mr Wilson, Ms Gillard and a former Slater & Gordon solicitor, Bernard Murphy, who is now a Federal Court judge, to give evidence.

    From the Oz. Ralph Blewitt was planning to call Julia Gilliard and Bernard Murphy to give evidence, and the whole case is dropped.

  141. Exit polling shows that Ireland has voted in a landslide — 68 percent to 32 percent — to change the constitution to legalize abortion. Among 18 to 24 year olds, the pro-abortion vote was 87 percent. Even rural Ireland, which was expected to be a bastion of anti-repeal sentiment, came in at 60 percent for repealing the abortion ban.

    So much for Catholic Ireland. The Rubicon has been crossed.

    Not even close.

    The Pope should abandon the diocese and pull his bishops out immediately.

    I don’t expect this pope to do much to remedy the situation, preoccupied as he is with chipping away at the edifice of doctrinal and moral orthdoxy from behind a wall of plausible deniability, but the faithful that remain need bishops – real bishops – more than ever now.

    AWU bagman Ralph Blewitt cries foul as case dropped

    Former union bagman Ralph Blewitt says 31 fraud charges against him were suddenly dropped this week after he signalled an intention to subpoena 593 “incriminating” documents and to call Julia Gillard and a Federal Court judge as witnesses.

    Speaking outside the Perth District Court yesterday after the charges were formally withdrawn, Mr Blewitt said he was “bloody annoyed” at the collapse of the case because it meant those guilty of crimes in the long-running affair were now unlikely to ever be prosecuted.

    The court was told admissions made by Mr Blewitt to the trade unions royal commission would not be admissible in the case, which related to the alleged embezzlement of hundreds of thousands of dollars from an Australian Workers Union slush fund. The charges were withdrawn due to “no reasonable prospect of conviction”.

    Although Mr Blewitt had ­admitted his involvement in the scandal, he pleaded not guilty to the 31 fraud charges because he said he was “purely and simply a bagman”.

    The AWU slush fund was set up in the early 1990s by then union boss Bruce Wilson with legal assistance from Ms Gillard, who was his girlfriend at the time. Money from the AWU Workplace Reform Association was used to partly fund the purchase of a house in the Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy in 1993. The association was supposed to promote training and safety on construction sites.

    Ms Gillard has repeatedly and vehemently denied knowing the fund was to be used in a fraud.

    The royal commission found she had been “casual and haphazard” in her work at law firm Slater & Gordon but had not committed offences, and was not aware of Mr Wilson’s conduct.

    Mr Blewitt yesterday said he had lined up a senior barrister to run the case and had begun moves to subpoena 593 documents held by the Director of Public Prosecutions. “I suspect the reason these charges have been dropped today is that they do not want me to get access to those 593 incriminating documents that have vital information in them that would go to the heart of additional crimes committed by parties involved in the AWU fraud,” he said.

    Mr Blewitt said he had planned to call Mr Wilson, Ms Gillard and a former Slater & Gordon solicitor, Bernard Murphy, who is now a Federal Court judge, to give evidence.

    Islam regards women/girls as inferior objects; systemic abuse flows from that.

    “O Prophet!

And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” Quran, 33:50 (Yusuf Ali translation).

    Appellant to authority has trouble with authority:

    Professor Cox says scientists refine their understanding when new knowledge is acquired, so there is no “dogma” or “truths” in science.

    He says it is “ludicrous” for people to dismiss scientific consensus.

    “We’re talking about blustering people, people who are overconfident and have no humility, who don’t think. That’s the sort of person who says ‘I know better than these people who study these things’. It’s nonsensical.”

    “Imagine that we’re flying on a plane, and imagine that the passengers decide that they think they can fly the plane better than the captain. So they say ‘come on, we’ve had a vote and we all think that it’s our right as a citizen to land this plane rather than you. It doesn’t matter that you’ve studied it for 20 years’.

    “That’s what we’re dealing with when we’re dealing with these people who are in powerful positions in certain countries.”

  211. The Yes vote’s signage, Vote Yes for women’s lives, setting aside the fact that females will actually be killed by abortion, and probably in greater numbers than males given the experience elsewhere, is a brazan lie for no other reason then the already extremely low maternal mortality rate in Ireland. Lower than most other Western countries where abortion is easily available.

    Jane Caro on The Dumb last night was talking about women needing to be protected from “stray sperm” through recourse to abortion, as though they had no moral agency in the choice to have sexual intercourse with the attendant possibility of pregnancy.

    Roger, people entertain all sort of rationalization when defending their past actions. Nietzsche was on point when he wrote the pithy aphorism: “I have done that”, says my memory. “I cannot have done that” — says my pride, and remains adamant. At last — memory yields.” What is killed in abortion is not a “stray sperm” but a human being in its early stages of development. All the 8th amendment of the Irish constitution did was grant the human being in its early stages of development the same protection granted at its later stages. Let us hope and prayer that it will continue to do so after this weekend.

    “We’re talking about blustering people, people who are overconfident and have no humility, who don’t think. That’s the sort of person who says ‘I know better than these people who study these things’. It’s nonsensical.”
