    Leftist wants more government.

    Gets it.
    Decides its not very nice but fails to draw the obvious conclusion.

    All week the media insinuated that the death of Jazmine Barnes was a hate crime committed by a white man. Now that it’s proven not to be a white man who killed her I notice that suddenly the race of her killers is not in the headlines anymore. This is why so few trust the media.

    How dare people peacefully assemble, listen to speeches, then disperse. How very dare them.

    Anning better be prepared for the worst. The Uniparty media and their judiciary will be preparing to show-try him for crimes against the state, so he can be incarcerated and silenced.

  4. TFM;

    …while trying to text the cab driver waiting for us outside with the other.

    Yeah. Right. A taxi driver is waiting for her before she’s gone through Immigration Control?
    I know bullshit when I hear it.
    From the link:

    There was no time to dwell on it, however, because just then my phone went off. “Whoever’s phone this is, come turn it off!” bellowed the woman. As I approached her desk, she was momentarily distracted, and once again I started texting the driver. Her scream was so loud – “Are you TEXTING? And are you on MY SIDE OF THE DESK?” (I had inadvertently drifted) – I thought for a moment she would actually restrain me.

    So she repeatedly refused direction from the officials, then tried to surreptitiously use her phone after being told to turn it off. Then ‘inadvertently drifted’ into the secure area where she could probably see the screen one of the personnel was using?
    She’s bloody lucky it was at JFK – not somewhere in China.

    I think it’s quite rude, just like so many other comments here.

    Oh Okay, the anodyne, non-committal reply when caught in a headlock. Nothing new here.

    When you set yourself up as a moral arbiter of anonymous posters, you can expect replies that you don’t like.

    I assuming you’re writing that sentence as a memo to self, but it ended getting caught in the comments box in error. 🙂

    You normally enjoy the cut and thrust of late night jousts, many of which you start.

    Not true, there’s nothing enjoyable about beating up reprobates as it becomes rather boring. Trust me, I’d rather have a discussion on economics or stocks etc. than making life difficult for losers.

    Why react so differently today?

    I don’t quite get this trick question? I’m not acting differently at all. In fact I’m a very smooth sailor with no real surprises.

    I’m just pointing out your hypocrisy. That’s all.

    One other thing. You’ve touted yourself as a Trump supporter and with that, seeing we’re in the advice business I’ll offer my own …free of charge.

    What’s the most important accomplishment you’ve noted about Agent Orange? No, it’s not the tax cuts, although they are important. It’s none of that. His most important accomplishment in my mind is that he acknowledges hiring mistakes and moves on. In other words, he doesn’t hold onto any dead wood. Hiring is just a guessing game, whereas firing a non performer is where real management and leadership shows up. It’s possibly his best attribute.
    What am I get at? This.
    What Anning did, shuffling around with Cottrell, is unforgivable. Instead of making up hallucinatory bullshit like implying you can read the fucker’s mind …. that he’s honest and forthright, stop doing that and interpret his actions. If his actions are distasteful, like sharing a podium with that human vermin, you fire the fuck and don’t go back. In any event, he’s bad news now and there’s no reason to defend him.

    The only trading rule there is for successful trading is one only. Get rid of the losers and keep the gainers. It also applies in real life situations too.

    A good trade or decent hire will eventually come along.

    Latham would never have shared a podium with Cottrell.

    She’s bloody lucky it was at JFK – not somewhere in China.

    I was pissing myself yesterday when a stone faced Thai immigration harpy strode up to three Malay ladies and confiscated their phones for taking pictures. They weren’t getting them back. No cries of racism either.

    Breaking from the Australian:

    EXCLUSIVE
    Senator swaps federal for state politics

    David Leyonhjelm will quit federal politics to contest the NSW state election, when he’ll compete against his former party member Mark Latham.

    Sorry, but am I reading that correctly? Four hundred and fifty Abrams?
    There is no chance of either crewing or maintaining that many here.
    Ditto with the Boxer.

  13. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    Liberal Democrat senator David Leyonhjelm will quit federal politics at the end of next month to contest the NSW state election, when he’ll compete against his former party member Mark Latham to clinch one of 21 seats.

    After two terms as a Senate crossbencher, Senator Leyonhjelm said he was most interested in state issues and wanted to turn his sights to NSW in a bid to be elected for an eight-year term.

    However, the move also gives Senator Leyonhjelm a greater chance at continuing his political career — a quota to get elected to the NSW upper house is 4.5 per cent of the vote, compared to 14.3 per cent for a Senate seat.

    May explain his motivation.

  14. calli

    His most important accomplishment in my mind is that he acknowledges hiring mistakes and moves on. In other words, he doesn’t hold onto any dead wood.

    Agreed. It’s from coming from outside the political establishment, with all its expectations based on connections rather than performance. It’s more of an inbuilt business culture than an accomplishment.

    Of course you get the press bleating about revolving doors. Good. Keeps them on their toes.

  16. cohenite

    I see the head prefect is still playing the abc/fairfucks line about Anning; that is he associated with neo-nazis like Blair Cottrell.

    It’s interesting that the same line was delivered against Lauren Southern and Stephen Molyneux when they were out here: first they were right wing, then far right, then extreme right and then someone popped the Nazi cherry.

    Head prefect, like the rest of the media and the uniparty is just distracting from the real issue of open slather with the borders and its UN justification of multiculturalism. That’s the agenda of anyone who vomits shit towards Anning.

    Eysenck in the 60s that is when psychiatrists were trained in Freudian psychoanalysis , nowadays they are trained in CBT . Empirical research supports positive outcomes for this therapy. However as in all things depends on the therapist and it also requires the client to work to bring about change . Sometimes it takes a lot of perseverance and encouraging the client to do this

    I suspect that Mark Latham will romp it in.
    PHON has greater brand recognition amongst the punters and Latham has more name recognition too.
    Also, I suspect that Latham now possesses more care for Australia and Australians than the ex-veterinarian.

    LOl, I haven’t read Fairfax in perhaps 5 years, unless I accidentally click onto a link posted here, you hallucinating oaf.

    It’s interesting that the same line was delivered against Lauren Southern and Stephen Molyneux when they were out here: first they were right wing, then far right, then extreme right and then someone popped the Nazi cherry.

    Personally, I thought they were non-entities doing a tour for some bucks and it showed. Someone posted a vid of the blond bimbo attempting to get a rise out of walkers by and it fell dead flat. But Cronkite, if you liked them then fine. They just weren’t my cup of tea. As for them being Nazis, well that’s laughable and ridiculous that you should even mention it.

    Head prefect, like the rest of the media and the uniparty is just distracting from the real issue of open slather with the borders and its UN justification of multiculturalism. That’s the agenda of anyone who vomits shit towards Anning.

    Says commissar Cronkite. Shut the fuck up with your absolutes. Leave that for the politburu, or whatever you have a the local fascist meet up.

    In a way, you’re just as fucking bad, just as obsessed as any left wing idiot who shows up here.
    Now go press your uniform.

    Joanna statistics would still be a requirement even though they can all be done on computer ,the results still have to be interpreted

    min, you are full of it.

    A previous or concurrent unit in statistics used to be required for psychology, which is not the case nowadays. And I mean proper statistics, run by the maths people. The kind that can’t ‘all be done on computer.’

    Today’s psychology courses are just moneymakers for so-called universities, inhabited by women in both staff and students, with all the academic rigour of blancmange.

  26. Makka

    I don’t know a lot about Anning but I do like the way he cut to the chase about our immigration policies on Nien this evening. Blondie couldn’t touch him and he was straight up with responses such as send all imported law breakers back AND their families. Been a while since I’ve seen cut through like that on Ozzie immigration issues. Good job Sen. Anning.

  27. rickw

    His most important accomplishment in my mind is that he acknowledges hiring mistakes and moves on. In other words, he doesn’t hold onto any dead wood.

    Trumps approach is exactly what most businesses would aim to do if not encumbered by “unfair dismissal” laws, an interview and reputation only goes a little way, what you’re really after is performance on the job. If that doesn’t materialise then you replace.

    Despite all the effort that goes into recruiting, probably only 10% deliver as promised, 10% deliver in excess of what was promised, the rest are under delivering by various margins.

    Yep. There were no strong dismissal laws in NYC other than harassment or racism when I was there. You’re what they call “an employee at will” and Trump’s an employer at will 🙂

  33. Makka

    Trump’s biggest achievement, by far (and there have been some big ones) has to be publicly exposing the lunacy of the left, driving them crazy so everyone sees these lunatics for the vermin they are. That includes the media. It’s a whole new world.

  34. JC

    It’s not a whole new world. Trump’s one of a kind and as soon as he’s left the stage things will get back to pretty much “normal”.

    and maybe 450 X Infantry Fighting Vehicles

    Also thousands of medium and heavy trucks with armoured cabins

    Sorry, but am I reading that correctly? Four hundred and fifty Abrams?
    There is no chance of either crewing or maintaining that many here.
    Ditto with the Boxer.

    We have most of our Abrams up on concrete blocks because our illustrious overlords won’t maintain them FFS.
    It looks like the Land 400 program, which is slated for delivery up to 2030. Just in time for our first NBN Class subs at about $250 Billion for the lot.

  39. Snoopy

    Guess how many journalists mentioned any of this? Guess how many even bothered to check? Guess how many of the brave members of the fourth estate currently having hysterical fits over the (admittedly stupid) mocking Nazi salutes of a few misguided fools at the patriot event bothered to find out why the “anti-racist” opposition had so many known extremists (and even a convicted murderer) in their ranks?

    How does a murder conviction compare to inciting serious contempt for Muslims? A mere trifle.

    Friend tells me Boxer is already considered a lemon at the coal face. It has been plagued with problems from the start that they can’t seem to rectify hence why the British cancelled their order. Also some armoured boys told him that they are unable to be used on most Australian roads & work has to be done on roads in training areas as they are 3m wide!

    Anti-racists act racistly while abetting lawbreakers.

    Tens of thousands raised to free Aboriginal women jailed for unpaid fines
    Campaign aims to raise $100,000 to clear warrants of commitment and pressure WA government to change law

    An enterprising chap would wonder how a discrimination case by Betty Bongsmoke (white non fine payer) would fare at the HRC?

    Organisers of a fundraiser aimed at releasing up to 100 Aboriginal women who have been jailed for unpaid fines will meet with authorities on Monday to begin clearing the debts in an effort to pressure the Western Australian government to act on a two-year-old promise to change the law.

    The campaign had raised more than $25,000 as of Monday evening and aims to raise $100,000 – enough to clear the warrants of commitment of more than 100 people that have either been jailed or are at risk of being jailed due to unpaid court fines.


    The fundraiser was launched following news that the Perth actor and Yirri Yarkin dancer Reuben Yorkshire, a Noongar man, had been arrested on a warrant of commitment for unpaid fines and ordered to spend six days in Hakea prison to clear a $1,700 debt.

    Yorkshire was released on Sunday, five days after being arrested after a random police stop on Scarborough beach, after an anonymous benefactor paid off his diminished debt of $638.

    His uncle, Warren Yorkshire, said his nephew had never been jailed before and believed he had been racially profiled by police.

    Good analysis of the yellow vest protests in France. France is about 2 – 3 years down the road from where Australia is now with the issue of open slather immigration policies. Unlike Australia France still has an alternative in Le Penn. Still we have Pauline, Anning, Latham and a few others who are willing to take on multiculturalism, the UN and islam.

    Blair Cottrell will continue to attract supporters because the issues he stokes are real. We ignore these issues at our peril. I happen to regard Cottrell as quite unsavoury…actually he is a thug and a goon but not, strangely, entirely inarticulate. However, that said, the more the media scream about him the more his support will grow amongst the disaffected and the disconnected. And as I said, those issues are real……soaring immigration, cost of living, crowded cities, power costs, terrorism, Islam and so on. People are fed up with duplicitous politicians who refuse to listen to the electorate, who are smug, elitist and so on. I don’t believe that most of those people who turned up on the beach are fascists or “far-right”, rather they are ordinary people who are seriously worried about African criminal gangs and a police force that has been neutered at the alter of political correctness.

    Of course it was. What’s more likely:

    A) after 350 fake hate crimes, that US org AntiFA imports a standard US tequniquecat tye same time as screeching “Nazis!!!!!!!!”
    B) People trying to be seen as mainstream representatives of concerned Aussie victims of crime, who see themselves as average Aussies and have no interest in naziism, whose concern is crime by teen African gangs and have no issue with Da Jooooz, randomly shoot off both feet with a swastika attack on universally sympathetic victims??

    But please notice that the front line police are still carrying out the oppressors wishes. The same as GB, Germany, France, etc.
    That’s the effect from having the Marxists taking over the indoctrination and training of police.

    This is a horrid video but I watched it through and can see from this that we need to be more vigilant in trying to avoid people like this becoming parliamentarians here. The recent replacement of Lee Brown in the senate shows how the trend may be going here. We could cope with Lee as we always had done with commos and socialists for decades.
    My concern is that it looks like we could have to cope with a different kettle of fish in the future, as can be seen by the abovementioned video.

    One of the things that I took out of it was that the left kept pushing socially and politically and that centre did not push back until they had the option of :
    a) supporting the murderers that wanted to murder them or ;
    b) supporting the murderers that wanted to murder the people who wanted to murder them.

    If the respectable right does not start speaking up soon, the extreme right will be all that is left to defend them.

    Today:

    Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has condemned rogue Senator Fraser Anning after he attended a far-right rally in Melbourne where Nazi salutes were performed.

    The premier urged voters to “get rid of him” if he stands for re-election as a Queensland senator.

    “As the granddaughter of Polish migrants who made Australia home after fleeing the brutality of the Nazi regime, I am appalled that an elected representative would attend such a rally,” the premier said in a statement.

    Then:

    PREMIER Annastacia Palaszczuk has described the behaviour being used by CFMEU protesters at the Oaky North mine as unacceptable but she will not personally admonish the affiliated union over the incidents.

    Her comments come following explosive security reports that revealed CFMEU protesters threatened to rape children and physically punish those refusing to support its three-month siege at the mine.

    She also refused to stop accepting money from the CFMEU.

    Latham is in touch with what ordinary Australians are thinking…that is ordinary men and women out in the western suburbs of Sydney…..a place where he still lives. He is articulate when discussing the culture wars and that is why I want him in parliament come March. I also think he is “keeping his demons in check”…I watched him on Bolt back in early December and he was very lucid and very restrained.

I think it was mh showing the “sterioded ” up douchebag basically trying to provoke an altercation with a bunch of young blacks playing soccer on the beach. There was absolutely no need for what he did. He tried to turn it around by suggesting their reaction at being filmed was hostile. It was a total con as anyone would be upset being filmed like he was doing. Perhaps it’s a minority thing at the Cat these days, but I don’t believe in collective guilt. Those guys weren’t doing anything wrong. As I said, he’s a total piece of shit.

    I don’t want to exaggerate the point by bringing up the nazi era but I will because its quite apt I think, seeing you said he articulate. Hitler was very articulate and most of his henchmen were too. Con men are by definition very articulate.

    When you look at the theory and practice of fascism, it’s a lot more popular than you realize. People have been coming up with softer descriptions of the same thing: corporatism, crony capitalism, political capitalism, “third way” socialism, “market” socialism, etc.

    There’s many minor variations on a theme but they have some things in common:
    * Government gives itself ultimately unlimited power.
    * Government does NOT snatch all property from private holders on day one.
    * Government DOES reserve the right to snatch property as it might feel appropriate, at any time.
    * If you work with the political objectives of the day you can probably keep your property.
    * Powerful people tend to make themselves more powerful (and rich).

    We can argue about the details, but that covers the core of it.

    Is the focus on the reformed neo-Nazi’s past a distraction for the efforts of the former neo-Nazi to support society
    If no one else but the reformed neo-Nazi is enunciating these real problems is it the moral thing to do to ignore the real problems because they are being spoken of by the reformed neo-Nazi

    Will Netanyahu Go to Riyadh?

    That would be the biggest event since the fall of the Berlin Wall and would be Trump’s doing. (Perhaps even bigger than the Paris Climate Accord, butthat’s disputable.)

    Don’t be surprised if Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu soon visits Saudi Arabia to meet with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

    The Trump administration has worked for nearly two years to get Riyadh and Jerusalem openly working together. Crown Prince Mohammed loves risk and is eager to turn the page from the Jamal Khashoggi murder. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s Mideast trip this week seems choreographed for a dramatic finale starring the crown prince.

    The U.S. stage managers are in place: National security adviser John Bolton landed in Israel Saturday, and Mr. Pompeo arrives Wednesday in Amman, Jordan, the first of eight Arab capitals he’ll visit in as many days. He plans to deliver a major speech in Cairo and to visit Riyadh early next week.

    Mr. Pompeo’s trip is intended to underscore that far from fading out of the Middle East, the U.S. is leading a broad coalition against Iran. The linchpins of the effort are Israel and Saudi Arabia, which share a fear of Iranian expansionism and are the closest U.S. allies in the region. They have maintained informal but not-so-secret contacts, sharing intelligence on their common nemesis. Why not make it official?

    A Netanyahu-Mohammed meeting would be a capstone of the Trump administration’s effort to isolate and contain Iran. The so-called Arab Street’s indifference to the U.S. Embassy’s move to Jerusalem is said to have given the crown prince the confidence to take his relationship with Israel public at the right time. On a more political level, it surely would divert public and media attention from problems currently besetting each of the three leaders involved.

    Down St Kilda foreshore way there have been many muggings and offences due to people of African appearance and Victorian police have been unable to control same. If fact, they are seldom in the vicinity to react in any useful way. But when a protest against such violence occurs, the police decide to turn up. No muggings and offences from people of African appearance occurred during the protest. Ergo, the best way to ensure safety on the St Kilda foreshore is to have permanent protest against violence and then the police may be bothered to turn up.

    He could have condemned the minority of saluting trollzis but pointed out that gang violence (and anti-white racism) has got totally out of control thanks to left-wing lunatic Labor politicians, that they were responsible, that this is why our borders must be severely policed, that multiculturalism has failed, that there is a better way etc etc etc.

    But no.

    Scott the economic geographer (WTF, BTW?) and young earth creationist instead praised multiculturalism, claimed mass African immigration is great and hugged Victoria Police.

    Total fucking idiot.

    Sadly that is the situation we are in, nobody speaks for us which reminds me of the movie “Shenandoah”. We think we can continue not to take sides until one day the unpleasantness and crime come to us.

    The Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Bill Clinton photo was taken a few months ago at Aretha Franklin’s funeral….not 34 years ago.

    Why does that make a difference? Then President Reagan and then Vice President Bush and a bunch of their senior advisers were consorting publicly with Farrakhan.

    Monty, the number of redheads that go to fight with ISIS is staggeringly high.

    Therefore I believe there are some subjects that redheads like yourself should stay away from because they cannot think rationally. White supremicism is definitely one of those subjects.

    No muggings and offences from people of African appearance occurred during the protest. Ergo, the best way to ensure safety on the St Kilda foreshore is to have permanent protest against violence and then the police may be bothered to turn up.

    First class analysis available for free on this blog but friends of pollies are paid millions to provide useless advice. Just like the environmentsl impact studies were used to pay off the greenies. Everybody wins except the mug taxpayers.

    Tell me this is not taxation without representation. I believe Americans fought a war of independence over it.

    On the subject of skin color, I’ve come to the conclusion that the most preferable skin color humans want would something like the lightly brown skinned Moroccans. Europeans suntan in the summer to get that skin color while Indians put shit on the skin to go down a notch in coloration.

    I handle the sun pretty well, although I have some partial Irish ancestry and slightly red hair. That said, I do wish my skin was a bit darker and the existence of expensive tanning lotion in high end salons proves empirically that “White Privilege” is a complete load of bullshit.

    If you want to take a sample of female beauty pageants and also take a look at body builder competitions, you never see a pure white-skinned person winning. Never happens. Always the winner is lightly brown give or take a bit (even if they needed to use artificial means to achieve that).

    Zulu deliberately winds you up with a post starting “A spot of spacechooking…”

    Another strategy is to accuse you of using “Rones” during one of your crazy raves.

    Wow, what a meaningful home life JC must have. I mean the guy literally has made a full time hobby out of stirring up stuff with total strangers.

    A minor problem for the rest of us is that it gets very repetitive. For example the numerous posts today about Cotterill. He tries to wear you down by shear repetition.

    Earlier he talked about himself being in Cohenites head. Yet every day we get the same old Tourette’s posts or comments about drinking by Zulu. Then there is his daily arguments with others.

    The guy has the nerve to complain about others here when he is basically the cause of the majority of the angst.

    He is very fortunate that the Blog owner has a very hands off approach to operating the blog. Most other blog owners would have come to the conclusion any benefits JC might bring to a blog are far outweighed by the constant deliberate negativity.

    If only somebody could do us all a favour and unplug him.

    Sinc has drawn a few lines in the sand (I.e the filter), which drives genuine posters crazy. For example, saying something to do with gemstones. I can understand that. Technology hasn’t quite caught up.

    Thanks Speedbox re Lethality in Combat.

    So far as further reading goes I’d suggest the autobiographies in the List of Works. I read very many, and only used the ones which seemed to me to be genuine – eg: non-sanitised. For example Philip Caputo’s is one that comes to mind – I’m in Texas and don’t have Lethality with me.

    Some I used though were obviously a bit sanitised, but i had to use anyway….Rommel’s comes to mind. There don’t seem to be many Frenchmen his unit slew in WWI when he was a young soldier. Turns out it was written in the inter-war period when the Germans were trying to be nice to the Frogs, so something appearing in which lots of the Frenchies died would not have gone down too well.

    OK, f/b apologies

    Watching Jack Reacher (again). I like some of Tom Cruise’s stuff, but FMD … Reacher is 6’4″ and about 125 kg of muscles; Cruise is 4’7″ (give or take :-D).

    The rounds being (re)loaded at the beginning of the film are beautifully prepped and clean. Yet when Jai Courtney chambers one before the murder scene, the round clearly has the snot beaten out of it.

    The reloaded rounds are clearly trimmed square to length. The empty case the cops “finds” in the crack in the floor is both trimmed and chamfered; you can even see the trimmer “chatter” marks on the neck.

    When the rapists are shot, they are, apparently, headshot. A .308 at that range will blow a human head apart, with lots of gore and splatter.

    The shots at the beginning don’t show any lead on a moving target. It’s a bullet, not a laser; it takes time to get there, while the target keeps moving.

    OK, enough … not wishing to piss people off, so goodnight.
