    Tarrant fits in the same moukd as knight the Hoddle street murderer,and the bastard at Port Arthur in Tassie . He is a crazy mass murderer like the Einsatzgruppen national socialists during world war two ,who murdered many many thousands of Jewish men women and children in eastern Europe .
    These people prove that European people \have their share of psycho murderers like the muslims ,the only difference is the koran forgives and encourages the actions by muslims while European culture condemns it .
    Of course had the foolish politicians had never brought the massive primitive voteherd to civilised countries these incidents would never occur ,no mussos no massaccres .
    Another stuff up brought to you by the career politics industry .

    With the NSW election coming up and One Nation having cucked on guns who do you guys recommend voting for in the upper house? If I were still in God’s Country I would vote for Anning after he bitch slapped that petulant child.

    Venezuelans ‘living like animals’ as taps run dry

    By Stephen Gibbs

    Life without running water has taken a heavy toll on Miladis Avila and her family. Like most of the two million people in Caracas, the taps in her small flat have run dry since a power cut nine days ago knocked out electricity across Venezuela, taking the pumps from nearby reservoirs down with it.

    “We are living like animals. How have we come to this?” she said, gesturing at the home that she shares with her husband and two teenage sons.

    She can only force out a few words at a time before breaking down in tears of anger and exhaustion. “I used to be house-proud,” she said, looking at a living room packed with plastic containers, ready in case the call comes from a neighbour that some source of water has been found. In the lavatory, a bucket of brown liquid, which the family uses to flush with, is nearly empty. Unable to wash clothes, a heap of dirty laundry has piled up in a bedroom.

    Mrs Avila’s family can no longer afford to buy candles and she has been making her own using a jar, cooking oil and a piece of string.

    She normally runs a small shop, selling food and household supplies in her working-class neighbourhood, an area traditionally supportive of the socialist administration. But her business has been closed since March 7 when the power cut, the worst in living memory, began.

    Mrs Avila, 48, said that she once supported the left-wing government of President Maduro. Now, just a mention of his name leads to a tirade of abuse. “Inefficient, thieving, corrupt, delinquent. We don’t have a government here anymore. We just have a bunch of gangsters calling themselves a government,” she said.

    Life in the Socialist paradise of Venezuela..

  5. Overburdened

    A previous associate riven with sinusitis would place his face in a large bowl of warm salted water and snort the water in with gusto and commitment, which is I imagine necessary.
    He swore by the method, probably because it was cheap and easily available.

  6. I’m sure we can find a Viktoristani judge who will gaol Anning for 30 years.

    Sorry, he’s going federal.

  9. Overburdened

    Message to Mrs Avila.
    You have described politicians of all stripes.

  10. Rabid Koala

    I just clicked the link and I like most of his policies but nowhere does he say he wants to reduce immigration. For me that is a make or break policy. At the federal level I plan to vote for sustainable Aus unless another party has a policy to reduce immigration by a greater number.

    Focusing on any other issue besides immigration is merely rearranging deck chairs on the titanic

  11. Makka

    Asks Mrs Avila;

    “We are living like animals. How have we come to this?” she said, gesturing at the home that she shares with her husband and two teenage sons.

    She answers herself;

    Mrs Avila, 48, said that she once supported the left-wing government of President Maduro

    .

  12. Rabid Koala

    We will immediately halve our current net immigration intake which will result in our population and big cities growing at a more reasonable and manageable rate.

    I missed that line on my first skim through their policies. They have my vote.

  13. Rabid Koala

    I just went through that link Makka and the Australian Conservatives has candidates standing in the uppe house and some lower house seats. I can see them getting a fair number of votes unless they torpedo themselves

    Thanks for that link to the Pell interview Gab. It was almost a surprise to hear a well-informed interviewer asking the questions. And you probably couldn’t get a better informed journalist in John McCauley in that he knows this Cathedral and the routine as well as having observed the trials. I really wished he was at liberty to say why he personally found the witness not credible and I suspect he may have seen or overheard stuff outside the courtroom. And tractor if Milligan can go around saying this guys believable why can’t Macaulay point out facts which make him non believable. The only person who has to accept this verdict at this point in time as Pell.

  15. Roger

    You don’t have to snort water; you just put hot water with a few drops of eucalyptus oil in a bowl and then stick a towel over your head and breath in the steam. Or that is totally useless if you have pollen driven hayfever. You need antihistamines. Go to the chemist. You may have to experiment to find one that works best for you but most of them are pretty good these days.

    Don’t use borax, it’s bad for neutron chain reactions. And no water with salts in it in case you short any of the wires. The cost to fill in the crater would be fairly expensive.

  25. feelthebern

    I don’t like Fraser Anning, but I don’t like the idea of any public figure being egged, pied, water bombed.
    Considering this was done in Melb, VicPol will charge Anning with GBH.
    The egger will get off.
    Those who apprehended egg boy will have the book thrown at them.
    None of them (including egg boy) should be charged with anything.

    I reckon this college fraud situ will impact the elite ruling class in the US for many election cycles to come.
    The whole legacy fraud will also now come under review for colleges too.
    Who knows, maybe the the unintended consequence is to reboot meritocracy in the US.

  33. Eyrie

    A quick Google reveals nobody was charged over the Toowoomba mosque fires.
    Just some grainy CCTV footage which proves nothing. Try again numbers, you dick.
    Wonder if the old building was insured? Might go well to build the new one.
    Toowoomba Regional council has allowed the new building without the normal car parking requirements. Why? It is next to a busy intersection.

    After seeing the response of Fraser Anning to getting egged he gets my vote.

    I got fined for not voting (since remitted), so I’ll have no choice but to vote this time.

    How does the Senate vote work in the Fed Election? Can I just put Fraser Anning 1 and leave the rest? Any tips on making sure major parties don’t get any benefit from my vote whatsoever would be appreciated.

FMD he even wears a bum bag You’ll notice that egg boi has raised $21,000 from fellow trolls so that’s nice money if you can get it. I also noticed that the Lindt shooter’s lawyer has offered to represent him for nothing. It is this sort of behaviour and response that really does make me think that the Christchurch shooter really well as a troll terrorist. These are a bunch of young men with too much time on their hands and no responsibilities who just looking for the next laugh.

    Thanks for EWTN interview re Pell, Gab.
    As I said on Friday, the week began with a culminating act of gross violence against the person of George Pell, violence whipped up by 20 years of religiously bigoted hate speech by leftists. To see those same people dust off the teddies and tealight candles to lament the violence in New Zealand was truly nauseating.
    ——————
    I don’t know exactly why Morrison chose to worship with the Copts this morning; it was inadvertently apt given the massacres carried out by Muslim terrorists during their services in Egypt. So there is that. But in choosing an Arab faith community (as if they, the Copts, are also victims of “white supremacy” too) is utterly trite. Not even deranged Rambos like Tarrant – let alone conventional critics of mass Islamic immigration – have any complaints about non-white Christians migrating to the West. What Morrison is doing is normalising the lie that opponents of mass Islamic immigration are ‘racist.’

    I see Egg Boy described as a “kid.” He looked to me like a nuggety firecracker with anger issues – the kind of “kid” who will probably be pinched for a king hit assault five years hence. Anning punched him in the head and he deserved it.

    Spreading the fake and totally discredited Dossier “is unfortunately a very dark stain against John McCain.” Ken Starr, Former Independent Counsel.

    The memos comprising the Steele Dossier, alleging misconduct by Donald Trump and conspiracy between him and the Russian Government, were reportedly written by the former head of the MI6 Russia Desk based on intelligence from “reliable, cofidential and sensitive” sources.
    The FBI used the memos to obtain warrants from FISA judges on that basis.
    Now we know, and Christopher Steele has conceded in a court deposition, that the dossier contains what amounts to open comments on a 2009 CNN website by unidentified members of the public, which were not edited, not fact-checked and not screened.
    The Trump-Russia Counter intelligence operation and Special Council investigation appear to have been triggered by the ad hoc comments of anonymous internet trolls.

    Avi is a National Treasure. I didn’t realise Anning was also attacked by Muslims at an airport. But how interesting that the terrorist’a mother and sister have been taken to a safe house out of fear of reprisal and it is Muslims who are attacking Anning. So any backlash that is going to come if it’s going to come at all is expected to come from Muslims. How very damning.

See on-line report of Jon Caine and arty luvvy Rachel Hunter gloating on air about the arson attack on the church in Brighton in 2015, followed up by Age hacks.

    The Christchurch branch of Gun City was busy on Saturday, with people buying guns and equipment, and firearms owners posted online about “panic buying”, where people were rushing to stores to purchase firearms.

  94. Dr Faustus

    The activist Left has been working successfully to connect, and blur any distinction between the Right of the Coalition and the lunatic fringe racist/white supremacists of the Alt Right. As a result we see the language of political violence – the Far Right, the Hard Right – being used by the mainstream media to describe mainstream conservatism.

    The strategic objective has been to create the perception of a direct moral equivalence between (say) Abbott and Dutton and arsewipes like Cottrell or Eriksen – and to link conservative opposition to the progressive Left agenda with violent thuggery.

    The Christchurch murders will inevitably play straight into this narrative.

    The effect will be felt directly in the forthcoming election. Any discussion of border security, immigration, Treaty, or climate change will be heavily self-censored – or ‘called out’ by the Left as creating divisions that cause mass murder. Morrison has already played into this paradigm.

    Hopefully Tarrant spends the rest of his shitty life wondering when he will be shanked.

    Whilst I believe the latter to be, in Australia at least, so minimal in strength as to be almost non-existent, this is similar to what I have been alluding to regarding the entry of a new ‘conservative’ player to the right of the Lieborals. The latter would then (if they were smart enough) label the newcomers as extremists, and themselves as moderates, triggering an internecine political conflict which a newcomer would be in a poorer position to engage in. Hence my call, impractical though it is, for a ‘clearance operation’ at the ballot box to remove the diseased party and open a space for fresh talent to grow.

    Digressing even further, my concern with the Australian Conservatives, is that they appear to not even be in the contest for defining their position in relation to the Lieborals.

    I’ll have to assume that no Uniparty politician has condemned the verbal and physical assaults on Senator Fraser Anning.

    Queensland voters take note.

  101. 1735099

    Change.org petition to remove Anning has 750000 signatures so far.
    Meanwhile, there is some controversy about whether Anning got 16 or 19 first preference votes.
    Any clarification?

    19 above the line votes.

    The petition is a waste of time. The Parliament cannot permanently expel members. That is a function for the electorate.

    Just bought a Jack Reacher book to smoke with and checked out the SF which was nearly all fantasy and bloody dragons. I mentioned the lack of hard sf to the guy at the checkout out and he smiled and said that fantasy was what the publishers provided and what the public wanted. “Retards”, I told him. He said: “I read fantasy. Thank you for telling me I’m a retard.” ” That’s OK, I assured him. It’s a public duty.”

    He probably believes in AGW as well.

    The EWTN interview explains the travesty of justice against Pell. Such discussion will never be allowed on the ABC-TASS media.

    However, McCaulay is too kind in his assessment of the judge and the conduct of the trial. A secret trial with no public access to the evidence followed by a public, televised sentencing with pronounced condemnations of Pell is symptomatic of an oppressive totalitarian state.

    Pell’s conviction showed that Australia is a Stalinist shithole. What has followed indicates that it is only going to get worse.

    19 above the line votes.

    The petition is a waste of time. The Parliament cannot permanently expel members. That is a function for the electorate

    True, but quite apart from that is the fallacious argument that “x was elected with 19 votes” or “y was elected with 53 votes”, which is inevitably applied by the media to Conservative senators.
    It is a function of “above the line” voting.
    Candidate x or y’s party may have got 500,000 above the line votes, which go to the #1 candidate first, with any excess distributed to #2 candidate, and so on.
    The first preference votes to #2 candidate are probably just his close friends and family, but it doesn’t de-legitimise someone elected under the “above the line” system.
    How many journalists have ever reported how many first preference votes Green senator Jordon Steele-John got from third on the ticket behind Ludlum and Seiwert and inheriting Ludlum’s spot after his eligibility fell over?

  117. and it appears that some people just don’t like giving the people the power to decide who is and who is not elected to Parliament.
    And it appears that some people just don’t like giving all the people the power to decide who is and who is not elected to Parliament. In other words, they’re happy to leave it to say, 25.7 percent of all eligible voters. That the percentage in the USA who actually voted for Trump.

    “How can it be right for this atrocity to be filmed by the murderer using a go-pro and live-streamed across the world by social media companies?

    “How can that be right? Who should be held accountable for that?”

    Parker’s comments come after Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s earlier remarks that New Zealand’s gun laws would change.

    Speaking to media in Wellington this morning, Ardern stressed that “now was the time for change.”

    Ardern said five guns were used by the primary perpetrator, including two semi-automatic weapons, and two shotguns.

    “The offender was in possession of a gun licence,” Ardern said.

    A useful starting off point in identifying how an assault is defined by the various criminal codes is Queensland’s definition. The Criminal Code in s 245 defines assault as the following:

    (1) A person who strikes, touches, or moves, or otherwise applies force of any kind to, the person of another, either directly or indirectly, without the other person’s consent, or with the other person’s consent if the consent is obtained by fraud, or who by any bodily act or gesture attempts or threatens to apply force of any kind to the person of another without the other person’s consent, under such circumstances that the person making the attempt or threat has actually or apparently a present ability to effect the person’s purpose, is said to assault that other person, and the act is called an assault.

    I’ve been reading it over the weekend too, notafan. I’m almost certain this is good news for Pell as it spells out exactly what they will need to argue at appeal, and the circumstances of the case are quite similar, one complainant, uncorroborated testimony, numerous exculpatory testimonies, no forensic evidence, and the like. One of the glaring facts that stood out to me when reading the fact-situation was that there was no evidence to establish that Br. Tyrrell even undertook any of the private tutoring that was alleged, and therefore the prosecution couldn’t even establish opportunity. I’m simply disgusted that this was taken to trial. If the Pell conviction is quashed on appeal, there has to be some sort of investigation both of the SANO taskforce and of the DPP.

    “Scott Morrison has called for Fraser Anning to face the “full force of the law”

    Scott Morrison is about to face the “full force of the Australian voter”.

    And SloMo won’t even land a slap on the appalling Bill Shorten.

    Found the rear-view camera footage. Channel 9, posted on The Oz.
    Clearly shows Anning’s first reaction is a slap and then (possibly) a punch when the attacker comes at him a second time.

    Surely a reasonable response in the circumstances.

    I was told by a Queensland cop that it is illegal to hit anyone over 65 years of age.

    I didn’t ask for further details, such as whether this was Qld only, but Anning was born in 1949. This is madness from the Prime Minister. He’s totally lost it.

  202. JC

    The subsequent attack on the teenager however was probably excessive.

    Here’s the difference though, Sinc. The little prick’s attack was premeditated. Anning’s response was a reaction.

  203. The way to stop this sort of thing, is:

    1. RFID chips and barcodes for each egg, so we track the owners.
    2. Licensing of egg owners.
    3. Police to inspect egg storage areas for unlicensed eggs.
    4. Import bans on eggs

  204. And a 30 day cooling off period for egg purchases.

    Or we could just ban from Australia any immigrant group whose religion calls for egging infidels.

    Incredible what the left will allow their front troops to get away with.

  209. Dr Faustus

    The deliberate political blurring of the distinction between Alt Right, Hard Right, Far Right, Right, and just plain conservative will undoubtedly have implications for free speech.

    In the wake of the Christchurch murders, focus is moving onto the threat posed by “far-right online” radicalisation:

    Rise in UK use of far-right online forums as anti-Muslim hate increases

    And where the Guardian goes, so too does their ABC:

    Accused Christchurch mosque shooter Brenton Tarrant used same radicalisation tactics as Islamic State, expert says

    The power of the language of political ideas is closing in on conservative debate. Thanks to the solid work put in by Getup, and the febrile media/political environment, the optical distance between StormFront and leading libertarian and centre-right blogs is shrinking.

    I’m rather afraid we are looking towards the threshold of Goodthink.

    You are too late, all of that is happening right now.

    The petition is a waste of time. The Parliament cannot permanently expel members. That is a function for the electorate.

    of course it’s a waste of time and it’s a bigger waste of time when the overwhelming majority of signatures are by bots or overseas trolls. But the real purpose of that petition is to create a story which lazy general is can pick up and report on the news and create a false narrative as if there is some sort of grass root apps rising against Fraser Anning when the reality is that 99% of Australians probably have never heard of him and couldn’t care less. In other words this is a classic case of astro turf in a technique that’s been used by the left time and time again and it works because there are so many left he lemmings that are willing to participate. Please report first sighting of such news items about the petition here.

  213. Mark A

    1. RFID chips and barcodes for each egg, so we track the owners.

    Oooppps not the owners the producers are licensed, nearly the same thing.

  215. None

    The excessive force may have related to the two guys that pinned him down but frankly what else was I going to do full stop as other people have noticed this guy smashed the egg and then went for a thing again and he wasn’t lying down quietly other. No one else was going to know what else he was carrying on him etc etc.

  216. Muddy

    If the alleged egg assaulter is charged, his defence may be that his act was reckless.

    I haven’t seen the footage, however if it is true that he filmed the alleged assault on his mobile, that does demonstrate intent, as J.C. commented above. I would imagine his lawyer might argue that while he intended to commit the act, he neglected to consider the consequences, thus constituting recklessness.

    (Hmmm, why didn’t I study law at uni instead of Advanced Lesbian Crochet Resistance Theory of 1972?).

  217. If Egg Boi had attacked a US Senator he would probably have been shot.

    Yup.
    Has anyone made a complaint to the police?
    Are the police going to first advertise for people who might recall being assaulted by Anning in the last 50 years?
    Are police going to offer compensation to those claiming assault?

  218. None

    Also no one complained about excessive force being used to pull Anning away from the assaulted. Don’t fall for the false narrative folks. This is how people also manipulate your memory. You’ve seen the video.

  219. Old School Conservative

    JC, Sinc is referring to the 4 guys who held the attacker down.
    With some gentle coaching from a 5th man, the choke hold was relaxed.

    Sinc, what else were they to do – ask politely to wait while the police came and did he want a coffee?

  220. cohenite

    So to recap Fraser Anning is abused and threatened at airport by some middle eastern creeps, egged by some little poofy guy, threatened politically by scomo and that little wong chap and sundry other pollies.

    He must be doing something right.

    It’s almost as if Scott Morrison wants Fraser Anning to be reelected.

    After Sco Mo’s sad efforts and the fact that many of their key players are in the process of abandoning them, the Liberals are gonna be toasted this election. Australia is in for some hard years … and the Libs will be asking themselves some hard questions before 2019 is out.

    No idea about Anning. Does he come up for election this year?

  224. Infidel Tiger

    Why is he an alt-right pin up?

    I think was reading lawyers like Julian Burnside. If anyone wants to argue he didn’t think of consequences we can use that forever to argue against 17yo voting. I think it may also be time to raise the age of consent.

  226. and the Libs will be asking themselves some hard questions before 2019 is out

    Like:

    Should we have separate lower house and senate elections, to hopefully limit the carnage?

    Poor old eggs are really getting a bad rap today. From The $Oz:
    Eggs linked to higher cholesterol and risk of heart disease

    Before you tuck into your next three-egg omelette or frittata, read this.

    Eggs may not be so good for you after all, according to a large new study published Friday that links higher consumption of dietary cholesterol with cardiovascular disease and death.

    The findings are likely to feed into a long-running debate over whether eggs are harmful or beneficial to health, as they become increasingly trendy and US consumption grows.

    Agreed.
    Mother took him up to school and just randomly arranged with the brother that happened to answer the door, who was both new to the school and not his class teacher to tutor him three days a week, indefinitely.

    Not a second of tutoring happened over the next four, no oops two years, just exactly 142 sexual assaults but mum was blithely unaware, and never checked once to see if his work had improved.

    Even if brothers took on extra tutoring, which clearly they didn’t, you would have expected some consultation with the class teacher or senior member of staff before agreeing.

    Also tutoring in what? Math, reading, it’s all so vague.

    Seems like as long as you can give a detailed disgusting blow by blow the jury will fail to see the extraordinary weaknesses in the whole.

    It seems that the funeral was the catalyst for the claim, I bet he heard that whoever it was, that was assaulted by someone got quite a bit of money, and that’s why he cooked up his fable.

  231. None

    It doesn’the matter when Anning comes up for reelection. He has nothing to lose.

  232. Infidel Tiger

    We should encourage this confronting of politicians.

    I know which side will lose if things get completely off the chain.
