    Incoherent, as if that lightweight Acosta would karate chop down on a cage fighter’s arm, the way he did to the female intern.
    He turned the verbal rough and tumble Press Conference into a physical altercation because “Trump is evil and therefore I can do anything to attack him”.

    DEM CAMPAIGN ACCUSED OF STEALING FLA. ELECTION

    The spokesman for Republican Gov. Rick Scott’s campaign has accused his opponent’s campaign of “preparing” to steal the election for Florida’s next senator.
    Scott’s campaign spokesman, Chris Hartline, said Democrat incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) “won’t be successful” in his attempt to steal the election in a Thursday tweet.
    “Let’s be clear about the Nelson game-plan here,” he said. “They are preparing to try to steal this election in the courts because they couldn’t win it at the ballot box. They won’t be successful.”…

    The Dems are now frantic knowing that RBG is hospitalised.

    In the US:

    A male physical-education teacher in a Florida school district has been told he will be transferred to another school as discipline for not doing his job. His job? “Walk into and supervise the locker room.” And why didn’t he? There possibly was a teen girl showering there with the boys in her class. Chasco Middle School in Land O’ Lakes, Florida, has drawn the attention of the non-profit legal group Liberty Counsel for adopting the transgender activist agenda.

    This is insanity*. A girl who “identifies” as a boy is biologically female (unless surgically altered; even then, chromosomes are unchanged). And what if, as is not uncommon, this person reverts to feeling female and decides to sue everyone for invasion of privacy? As we are seeing, retrospective law suits are now a thing, based on “memories” of events 30 years ago, and lies.

    * I’m not sure I would have objected, but things were simpler in my day.

    The coming 7-2 SCOTUS majority must update their “originalist” legal doctrine, to mean that ANY piece of legislation that the Founding Fathers wouldn’t like must be abandoned, because it goes against the spirit of the Constitution. It’s time to make Leftism impossible. Forever.

    Apparently we are expected to #believeallwomen but not the evidence of our own eyes.

    From what I could see, Acosta did not strike the woman although he was forceful in pushing her away, so whether or not that would cause an apprehension of physical harm – mind you, looking at a woman who has dressed herself to be noticed is considered rape now, so Acosta can be considered to have killed the woman’s entire family and pissed on their graves.

    But certainly he has shown a lack of decorum and respect of the rules. He again wanted to take over the press briefing for his own and CNN’s agenda. I know the press believe they own the WH press conferences, but Acosta was way out of line.

    Of course he got his credentials revoked. Is there anywhere that constant disruption won’t get you booted? Imagine if someone acted like that within CNN.

    How long has he worked with them. He acts like he believes CNN still matters.

    The other day he was explaining that the role of the Army is to hold the line and train up the battalions of new recruits ( like 1939 ), so we can go back on the offensive against the totalitarian hordes ( like 1943 ).

    So it appears holding the line will be amusing the hostile forces with Spice Girls tribute concerts while the battalions of new recruits learn formation dancing.

    There is no capability whatsoever to deploy military forces in any expeditionary force beyond a company of special forces – and the Ben Roberts-Smith witch hunt is designed to force a neutering of the SpecForces next.

    You sit down and wait – transfixed by that unflinching gaze, you can’t shake the feeling that she isn’t even listening, but looking directly inside you instead. Her head shifts a bit, her jaw begins slowly to move, her mouth opens and…a cockroach scuttles out, walks around her face and then crawls back in.

    Exactly Calli.

    Forget the semantics of whether or not it amounts to “assault”, this creep has overstepped the line in so many press conferences, hijacking the whole affair to bulldoze his opinions, not to report the news or provide intelligent analysis or commentary. It’s a miracle he’s lasted so long in fact.

    Strange snafu misroutes domestic US Internet traffic through China Telecom

    China Telecom, the large international communications carrier with close ties to the Chinese government, misdirected big chunks of Internet traffic through a roundabout path that threatened the security and integrity of data passing between various providers’ backbones for two and a half years, a security expert said Monday.

    It remained unclear if the highly circuitous paths were intentional hijackings of the Internet’s Border Gateway Protocol or were caused by accidental mishandling.

    LOL

    The problematic route,……., was the result of China Telecom inserting itself into the inbound path of Verizon Asian Pacific.

    Kristallnacht survivor Andy Factor warns of rising antis3mitism on 80th anniversary

    That was my impression too, Myrddin.

    I have spent the day dodging mobility scooters and walkers. I get that there may be a situation where it’s a scooter or shut in, but many of these people simply need to lose weight. A lot of weight. And tragically, many are relatively young.

    One of the problems here appears to be the fact that sugar (in the form of corn syrup) is in just about everything and in huge, noticeable amounts. I bought some “multigrain” bread yesterday and is tasted sweet. Ordinary sandwich bread.

    Australia is going the same way. I have been watching John Constantine’s comments about meat consumption with interest. It is cheap here, but I fear people do not know how to cook it in a healthy way. As my fit and healthy and 87yo Dad says, “not every day is Christmas Day”.

    It is extra calories, in any form. I eat little stuff with lots of sugar but I have to watch my diet, and exercise, or the kg add on. I think part of it is that older are generally more sedentary, which can be hard to avoid entirely. I’ve got aching muscles now from this morning’s fairly sedate walk.

    That is unwatchable (except for the footage of tankies having a good time blowing things up!)

    Apparently I’m eligible for a medal too – just for completing the service I signed up for and swore an Oath to do. I won’t be claiming it, it would be an insult to those who’ve actually had to deploy overseas, actually been shot at, been wounded, or given their lives for this now-miserable country.

    To have some advertising jerk come up with this sort of song and dance routine is pathetic.

    I certainly respect those women who have served overseas and in dangerous places, but this push is just too much. Our military nurses in particular have long spent time in very dangerous places, experienced the trauma of dealing with horrific injuries, even been killed, executed by the Japanese in WW2. Years ago, our schools taught us this, so the understanding was there for all, and we had no need of advertising campaigns to tell us. Bring back the education to our schools, so we don’t need these patronising adverts.

    Every day can be Christmas day, with a plateful of chops.

    Eating animal protein and fat does build a muscle frame in your body that takes some load off your bones, the muscle even burning fat while you sit on the couch watching the cricket.

    A pile of fried sheeps brains and eggs on top of a bed of veggies is what the old timers considered a decent start to the day.

    The caution is that chops must replace cake and bikkies and slice and pudding and chips and lollies and lolly water.

    Bread as well if you can break the worlds oldest addiction.

    Eat hearty during the day, not at night, chops are satisfying for longer than empty sweet calories and your tastebuds can be trained to get a kick out of different things.

    Meat that is a cut from an identifiable part of the [ suitably grass fed] carcass counts, processed chicken nuggets that have been sludged up, bleached, extruded and fried are not meat.

    Lean ropey muscle [ not steroid lumps of scar tissue] is your friend when it comes to beating fragility fractures and having a functioning metabolism.

    Will you live longer on a calorie restricted starvation regime? possibly, but fall over just once and land wrong and it was all for nothing.

    Visceral fat from empty calories compared to the crisp mutton fat of a grilled chop. I know which one i choose.

    President: You will have noticed that the economy improves as I remove Mr Obama’s policies. I have implemented my own policies to open up opportunities for the natural enterprising spirit of the American people but, yes, there is a portion of the growth in my Presidency that can be explained through releasing what the previous administration had weighed down in chains.

    It is extra calories, in any form. I eat little stuff with lots of sugar but I have to watch my diet, and exercise, or the kg add on. I think part of it is that older are generally more sedentary, which can be hard to avoid entirely. I’ve got aching muscles now from this morning’s fairly sedate walk.

    Exercise does little to reduce weight. It is surprising how much exercise we need to burn off excess calories. The conversion of the energy molecule, ATP, from ADP is amazingly efficient. If a sedate walk is causing aching muscles you might be protein deficient. Recently read a review on whey protein which found that whey protein has many favourable qualities. Protein is essential for maintaining muscle mass and function, older adults can be deficient in the essential amino acids. If I was getting sore muscles just from walking I’d be concerned. The best whey protein is whey protein isolate, which is pure protein, no fats or carbs. Bulk Nutrients, a company in Tasmania, sells excellent products at very good prices(because most supplement suppliers are rip off merchants). BTW their “Green Fusion” product seems to be very good with heaps of super oxide dimutase, an intrinsic antioxidant enzyme that is vital for our health but production of it very much declines with age.

    Sarcopenia, age related muscle loss, is a big problem and common for people over 70 years of age. Why it happens is poorly understood and there is no treatment. The best option is to preserve muscle mass with some resistance training but without adequate protein intake resistance training can induce muscle loss.

    If you have any kidney issues be careful with elevated protein intake.

    Dietary whey protein lessens several risk factors for metabolic diseases: a review

  96. Senile Old Guy says:

    If a sedate walk is causing aching muscles you might be protein deficient.

    Very unlikely on my diet. I did not mention that I have done little exercise recently, due to various issues, so it is just getting back into shape, which, as you note, gets harder with age.

  97. calli says:

    I find exercise improves my attitude. A good 4-8kms a day gives me a kick and probably decreases appetite, especially for junk. I find the resistance stuff really hard but satisfying in an achievement kind of way.

    My trainer read me the riot act just before I left on holidays. Always impatient and going like the clappers, she spied me going too fast on one of the weights machines. So she made me increase the weights and go slower. Erk.

    Kristallnacht survivor Andy Factor warns of rising antis3mitism on 80th anniversary

    Now, exactly 80 years since that night, there is another sound that fills Andy with fear: the rising and reinvigorated chorus of white nationalism and antis3mitism that is spreading across parts of Europe and America.

    “I am convinced that it can happen again,” he said.”

    I couldn’t believe what I was reading… not a word, not a whisper of where most of the anti-S*mitic attacks in Europe and North America are coming from….the religion of peace and pieces. The ABC deliberately avoids mentioning this..it is a disgrace.

    As I wrote last week on the Oz website comment section..in response to two leftist J*wish leaders….

    “where is your denunciation of the anti-S*mitism of the far left and of a particular religious ideology? I think you both should be calling out anti-S*mitism of the both the far right and the far left. Yesterday’s horrendous murders in Pittsburgh were at the hands of a far-right white supremacist….but you know as well I do that the spate of anti-S*mitic attacks and murders in Europe are at the hands of followers of a particular religious ideology…..I remember the murders of the school children in Toulouse in 2012, I remember the murders at the kosher supermarket in Paris in 2015, I remember the Synagogue security guard murdered in Denmark in 2015, I remember the arson attack on a Synagogue in Sweden last year, I remember the kosher restaurant vandalised this year in Holland, I know that Swedish J*ws are fleeing the city of Malmo and closer to home….I remember the video (reported in this newspaper too) of a Muslim extremist delivering a speech, here in Sydney no less, to a rally of followers in which he calls for jihad against the Jewish people. I could go on and on.

    Yes, far right anti-S*mitism is a problem and a threat but so is far left and Islamist anti-S*mitism. I think you need to be honest here. Please call that out too.”

    I find exercise improves my attitude. A good 4-8kms a day gives me a kick and probably decreases appetite, especially for junk. I find the resistance stuff really hard but satisfying in an achievement kind of way.

    A whey protein supplement suppresses appetite through multiple processes. I have a whey supplement and the hunger fades very quickly. I’ve recently returned to the gym and the effect has been wonderful. As an oldie I focus on the major muscle groups so plenty of leg presses, bench presses and lat pulldowns. Soon I will be adding dead lifts and squats at present waiting for tendon and ligament strength to improve .

    So she made me increase the weights and go slower. Erk.

    It’s a pain but yes go slower. Prevents injuries, increases muscle loading.

    What you’re really saying is that we need to do a lot of regular and vigorous exercise to be lean. That’s not the same as “Exercise does little to reduce weight.”

    I’m not saying that. Exercise helps but calorie control is essential. A relative gave me a recent example, she looked at the calorie content of a single grapefruit and was amazed. Some foods have too high a calorie level and must be avoided. Most people aren’t aware that sugar is added to so much food, including bread and tomato sauce. For most people the amount of exercise required to reduce weight is unrealistic unless they also carefully think about their total calorie intake.

    Very unlikely on my diet.

    A deficiency is one essential amino acid makes a huge difference and can discount all the protein intake.

    I do think there is a bit of an issue for intergenerational equity. The whole taxation and planning system has put so much capital into unproductive areas in Australia – i.e. real estate. This means housing is much more expensive than it otherwise should be on any reasonable distance near city centres. This is also where jobs are which means long commutes from affordable housing for young people which are expected to work long hours to get ahead. You also have a taxation system for PAYG people which means you cannot really build wealth if you work hard.

    Young people out of Uni in normal jobs just cannot and will not be able to afford to buy a house even after years of saving a deposit. This delays marriage and children.

    https://www.sun-sentinel.com/local/broward/fl-sb-broward-elections-supervisor-broke-law-snipes-canova-20180514-story.html

    Circuit Judge Raag Singhal ruled Friday that Snipes wrongly destroyed public records because:

    — The elections office is required to maintain the ballots in federal elections for 22 months, while Snipes destroyed the ballots after 12 months, which is the retention period for state elections.

    — The ballots were the subject of a pending lawsuit, so it would take a court order from the judge in the case to allow their destruction.

    Snipes “has not presented any evidence refuting that the public records sought were destroyed while this case was pending before this court,” Singhal said.

    So after being caught destroying records in the midst of a legal case, she is still in the job today.

    Here’s Annabel Crabbe on Foley /Raper

    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-11-09/annabel-crabb-ashleigh-raper-luke-foley-geoffrey-rush-barnaby/10480876

    It’s Crabbe, so there is nothing particularly original or deep here. Here’s her basic premise:

    ‘Eryn Jean Norvill (Geoffrey Rush), Catherine Marriott (Barnaby Joyce) and Ashleigh Raper (Luke Foley) — have one thing in common. They all tried extremely hard not to be in an article like this one.

    ‘It’s actually heartbreaking, the extent to which these women tried to play by the rules, or simply to suck it up and move on. All three were adamant that they did not want a public show trial of their complaints.’

    Like other ‘progressives’ commenting on the Foley case, she particularly blames NSW Liberal MP Elliot:

    ‘And that’s thanks largely to a bloke who wanted to make political mileage out of it, New South Wales Liberal MP David Elliott, who — thanks to his parliamentary privilege — will never have to suffer the depredations of a public trial like that which Ms Raper, against her will, now contemplates.’

    The key difference between the Rush and Foley cases is that Rush is an actor while Foley is a public official with considerable potential power and whose conduct and integrity is therefore an obvious matter of public interest. Whatever Elliot’s motives or methods, he had a duty to bring the allegations against Foley to the attention of the public.

    And so, at least is theory did Raper. Whether she neglected this duty because,as Crabbe claims, she didn’t want to ‘suffer the depredations of a public trial’ or whether Crabbe’s colleagues leaned in her for partisan purpose, remains an open question.

    The best part of the Crabb piece was the gratuitous summary of the Blasey Ford affair.

    In the United States, Dr Christine Blasey Ford stepped up voluntarily to tell her story about an experience with a youthful Brett Kavanaugh, Supreme Court nominee.

    Her eagerness to please in the stand had a terrible poignancy.

    Many women stopped in the street and wept as they watched her evidence on their smart phones, so familiar to some of them was the struggle going on inside this one woman.

    Not a struggle between good and evil, but a struggle over how best to be good.

    Kavanaugh has since been confirmed as a Justice of the Supreme Court.

    Dr Ford has had to move house four times, cannot go back to her work as a university professor, and has had to engage personal security due to the constant harassment and death threats levelled against her and her family.

    No mention of the FBI investigation that found zero corroboration. No mention of the one million dollars coming Ford’s way.

    Teacher reports finding ballot box left behind at Broward polling place

    eacher Lakeisha Sorey says she discovered a locked ballot box at Sunshine Elementary School in Miramar.

    Sorey said she found the box about 3 p.m. Thursday, in the same area where voting had been held, and knew not to meddle with it.

    “I didn’t want to touch it,” Sorey said.

    Her discovery came as several statewide races hang in the balance, with elections officials in Broward and Palm Beach counties still counting votes on Thursday.

    Flawed ballot design may be to blame for questionable voting patterns in Broward »

    Seeking help, Sorey phoned her friend, State Rep. Shevrin Jones, D-West Park, a close confidante of gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum.

    Jones called the Broward Supervisor of Elections Office, and a woman there told him the box was probably full of blank ballots, he said. If that’s the case, Jones is questioning why the box is locked.

    Jones said he was worried the box might contain ballots that are not being counted.

    You don’t fucking care even if the US goes into depression, as long Trump is hurt.

    Appointed by a Mr Obama. Curiously the good judge didn’t recuse himself from this case:

    Morris’s ruling repeatedly faulted the Trump administration for reversing former President Obama’s 2015 denial of the pipeline permit without proper explanation. He said the State Department “simply discarded” climate change concerns related to the project.

    There are no climate concerns about the case since oil has no significant effect upon climate. Therefore Judge Morris erred in law.

    As far as I am aware, Elliott made the claims about Foley in Parliament after Foley called him a “grub”.

I can bet your bottom dollar that they wouldn’t have kept schtum if Foley had been a Liberal or National. Imagine for a moment if the perpetrator in this incident had been Tony Abbott….would the ABC, Crabbe and all the mediocre scum that make up the media in this state have kept so quiet and be so solicitious about the woman in question..known as Raper? NO WAY. In their frenzied desperation to lynch a conservative, especially if it was someone like Abbott, they would be throwing Raper to the lions. They are frigging hypocrites. I remember very clearly what they did to Brogden. Brogden was lynched by the media with many in the Labor party joining in including the then cockroach premier…aka Carr. There was zero concern for Brogden’s wife. And if Foley did what he is alleged to have done…then Foley is a grub…but he is a grub who should have been smacked down years ago. Any man that touched me inappropriately would end up being smacked in the face. The only reason this has been kept submerged is because Foley is a Labor leader…it’s all politics.

    Social psychology studies? The point is obvious. If we are constantly exposed to physical violence in the real world a few are much more likely to become desensitized to it. The video game studies suggest video games might make some people more inclined to violence but the experience of real world violence, of actually killing a person face to face, is much more likely to desensitize people. The soldier who gets used to killing and enjoys it may well be the worst one to return to civilian life. Fortunately the vast majority of human beings never get used to it but when you have large numbers in the military well a few are going to slip through.

    As I said yesterday Foley is a liability for the ALP in the run up to the election because he is annoying and boring. He’s also a straight white male. And a Catholic. And an ASU guy – the ASU is well down the pecking order in the union hierarchy.

    So the ALP needed a way to ease him aside for a more charismatic softer type to take on Gladys. The fuss is probably because after doing the hard yards as Opposition Leader for many long years he is reluctant to go.

    Expect him to be appointed by Shorten to a plum ambassadorship or a very well paid pozzie in an Industry Super Fund or a statuary authority somewhere. The current wrangling is just Foley and the ALP disagreeing on the price, with the ALP threatening the nuclear option to get him to be suitably grateful for whatever crumb they’ve decided to throw to him.

    Pedestrians win, cars lose as permanent bollards installed at Flinders St station (Wednesday)

    Another lane of car traffic will be removed at the intersection of Swanston and Flinders streets, as works begin on permanent security bollards in front of Flinders Street Station.

    A cycling lane at the intersection will remain.

    Another lane for car traffic on the opposite side of the intersection has already been shut as part of the Metro Tunnel project, and will not reopen for four years.

    Lord Mayor Sally Capp said installation of the stainless steel bollards, which are not retractable, would add 130 square metres of footpath space in front of the Flinders Street Station clocks.

    Removing a lane from Flinders Street leaves less road space for unidentified people of no religion to drive manically along it. Also the permanent traffic jam will slow the unidentifiable people down. Retaining the cycle lane is fun – presumably someone has worked out that jihadis rarely use bicycles. What’s the bet the stainless steel bollards are coming from China?
