    It’s close CL, except she’s wearing it backwards. Notice her pistol on her left hand side (and the cross draw taser) – both indicating a left hander. She’s handling the rifle as a right hander but clearly isn’t.

    It’s a stage prop. A propaganda set up.

    For verification, check out the male officer down the page. Pistol and Rifle butt on the same side.

    Much of the official propaganda disseminated over the last nine days is obviously fake and gay. It’s like they’re not even trying. It’s as if they’re running analytics for gullibility and compliance within the population.

    I’m still waiting for the general hysterics about Gerard Henderson’s Jacinda Arden comments in the Australian.

    ‘I think it went something like “the air is thick with jagged ‘strine and cigarette smoke.”
    Of course, only the “right Australians” should be permitted to represent us overseas, lest we spark bloodthirsty responses from the otherwise peacable natives of foreign lands.’

    At about the same time that Alison Broinowski was attacking Aussie behaviour in South East Asia, husband Richard was providing a reference for a former colleague of his who was later arrested and, IIRC, convicted of a paedophile offence in Thailand.

    I used to wonder how this anomaly might have played out over the dinner table in their – almost certainly – $2 million ‘Federation’ house in inner Canberra, until I realised that neither of them was likely to have the necessary self knowledge to confront the issue.

    The Brionowskis are Canberra public service royalty, his grandfather was the first Clerk of the Senate.

  5. Oh come on

    The biggest ‘get’ – if you can call it that – is the prosecution of Manafort. His crimes are unrelated to ‘Wussia collusion’. Manafort was well-known as a grubby DC operator (not the grubbiest by a long chalk, and those people remain uncharged and uninvestigated), so no one ought be surprised that he committed crimes long before he was briefly associated with the Trump campaign.

    Dumb and Dumbers, you ain’t got nothing. But don’t stop trying to keep the dream alive. It’s pretty funny.

    The major deflections being floated by the left to respond to the deflating release of the Mueller report appear to be:

    Trump refused to be interrogated by Mueller.

    No, the fact is that Mueller never subpoenaed him to do so. Had Mueller done so Trump might have have declined to answer questions, as is his right under the 5th Amendment, but we’ll never know.

    Perhaps Mueller recognized that his subpoena would have been unconstitutional because another 5th Amendment element is the right is to due process, in this case the specific protection against vague laws, or non-existent ones such as ‘collusion’. Those are called fishing expeditions, which are great opportunities for tripping someone up in the interview and bagging them with a process violation… as indeed it did to several people in this case.

    But look at all the people indicted!

    80% of the indictments were purely for show. They were of Russians Mueller knew would never see the inside of a US courtroom. We’ll never know what, if anything, they would be found guilty of. Or if they even exist for that matter.

    Of the rest indicted, NONE were indicted for anything related to Trump or his campaign.

    Mueller is a traitor to ‘the cause’

    Given the way Mueller stacked the deck with anti-Trump investigators on his staff and the way he has conducted the investigation for the last 675 days that one is just ridiculous.

    Autopsy of a dead coup
    … not thugs in sunglasses and epaulettes, not oligarchs in private jets, not shaggy would-be Marxists, but sanctimonious arrogant bureaucrats in suits and ties used their government agencies to seek to overturn the 2016 election, abort a presidency, and subvert the U.S. Constitution. And they did all that and more on the premise that they were our moral superiors and had uniquely divine rights to destroy a presidency that they loathed.

    Poor m0nty. I challenged him at the height of his frenzy and told him that if he got this right, I’d forgive his previous wrongology.

    The outcome is another rake, and a big one.

    You’d think that he’d be driven to the conclusion that there’s something fundamentally flawed in his system of making political predictions. But no, on he goes. Over the great Gromboolian Plain he goes, he goes, The dong with the luminous nose. A warning to all of us to try hard not to believe things just because we want to.

    Terrible examples of may kowtowing to islam; may, merkel and macron are arguably those Western leaders who are doing the most to subvert their own cultures on the altar of multiculturalism which is really islam since it is the only ideology which threatens Western society under the guise of multiculturalism.

  23. Pedro the Ignorant

    Old digger showed me how to find which is your master eye when shooting by using an extended arm, focus on a distant object with both eyes, then shut one eye then the other and see which eye retains the spot you focussed on.

    Simple little trick, a real eye opener.

    Mea Culpa, forgive that awful pun. 😀

  24. C.L.

    Point being if I was kitted out with rifle and pistol, my pistol would be holstered on my right hip but my rifle would be slung for left-handed firing.

    More on the weak and pathetic Teresa may:

    In a shocking declaration, the UK Home Office “has claimed Christianity is not a religion of peace after turning down a Christian covert’s bid for asylum in an ‘unbelievably offensive’ letter quoting bloodthirsty passages from the Bible…..The Iranian national was turned down for asylum in 2016, with the Home Office claiming his conversion from Islam was inconsistent’ with his claim Christianity is a peaceful religion.”

    The Home Office also mocked the Iranian national for believing in Christ:
    “You affirmed in your AIR that Jesus is your saviour, but then claimed that He would not be able to save you from the Iranian regime….It is therefore considered that you have no conviction in your faith and your belief in Jesus is half-hearted.”

    The passages cited in the Iranian national’s rejection letter were from the book of Revelation, as well as Leviticus and other parts of the Old Testament. Nice try, but Revelation is a prophetic account, not a call to violence; also, there is no global problem of Christians and Jews citing violent verses from Revelation or the Old Testament and acting upon them. Jihadists, however, are citing the Qur’an to justify their violence, and doing so repeatedly and openly….

    Indeed, Des, just as the Russian agent Burton had a student hall at ANU named after him.

    A while back, Scottish author Ian Rankin, who wrote about his capital, snooty Edinburgh, did a luncheon in Canberra. He said that there are a million stories under the smooth and rich and carefully cultivated surface, but you’ve got to dig and work to find them. Oh boy, is he right.

    I’ve been watching lots of noir movies, reading C P Snow, keeping up with US politics (mainly via The Five) and discovering new sites like the Conservative Woman and Invading Holland.

    Recently, I followed one of those weird links where I wound up in a conspiracist (but partly believable) theme of bad things happening to the Young Girls who came to The Canyon. It was fun, it may be true.

    More recently, I have found a genre where youngies listen to old popular music classics (allegedly) for the first time, and you get to watch them live.

    Most of them are black American guys who have grown up with hip hop, rap and so on.

    They love Pink Floyd with a passion. You see them swooning, as I did, to ‘Shine on You Crazy Diamond.’

    My favourite one was when a black musician heard The Righteous Brothers’ rendition of ‘You’ve Lost that Loving Feeling’ – here.

    I’m at a loss as to why non Muslim women put on the hijab.

    The role of the hijab in early Islam was to cover and distinguish free believing women from non believers, whores and slaves in order to stop harassment by men.

    Modesty may be a virtue but it is not mandated in a modern western democracy for women exclusively.
    Mixed messages, girls.

    Christchurch massacre: NZ police OK gave Tarrant weapons

    New Zealand police have come under heavy criticism after it emerged that officers gave Brenton Tarrant the all-clear before he was issued with a firearms licence in 2017, paving the way for him to buy semiautomatic guns which he subsequently converted into military-style assault weapons.

    The revelation forced NZ police to defend their firearms vetting process, amid concerns that Tarrant may have gamed the gun licensing procedures to get his licence.

    But NZ police said in a statement “extensive inquiries” had found Tarrant had been subjected to the normal vetting process when quizzed at his Dunedin home in November 2017, including a refusal to allow him to use a family member he had nominated as a referee because they were not a NZ resident.

    “The accused provided two further referees, who met the requirements of the process and were interviewed face-to-face by a police firearms vetting officer,” the statement said.

    I grew up with five sisters and one brother. Sheliahs can be a calming influence in life. The most wonderful people ever. But so is a Dad, the uncles and mates and so on.

    I really pity the boys these days that grow up without a male influence in their life.

    It’s why we now have these squally little pigs running around the place demanding equality and reckon they are “hard done by”. The response should be that your mother shouldn’t have been a slut.

    Love using them when they’re brand new … the edge on the point is awesome.
    On any given day I can be found with a screwdriver or 2 on my person … it is part of my job I suppose
    which is why I always keep a nice shiny new sharp spare in the console of the car.
    You know, in case I lose one somewhere .

    That’s not to say the president didn’t cooperate. His organization, campaign, inaugural committee and White House produced millions of pages of documents, and he submitted written answers to prosecutors about his conduct prior to Election Day. Nearly all key events were illuminated by this cooperation.

    Such disclosure likely was enough to satisfy Mueller, since we know the prosecutor in the end didn’t force the president to testify by subpoena.

    ‘It’s not helped if the Shooters party were to win an outright balance of power and multiple seats in both houses,’ Mr Fischer told Daily Mail Australia on Friday.

    It is a huge indictment on modern Aussie society that so many boys grow up never having caught a fish, shot a rabbit, helped butcher a sheep, lit a campfire, slept in a swag, mended a fence, gone swimming in a dam or river, pulled down a motor, chopped some firewood, and all the manly things that boys and young men should be doing as a matter of course.

    When this country reverts to an economic smoking ruin, with no reliable power, the kids will all be doing this in spades through necessity rather than as a character building exercise. There’ll be no whinging about emptying the dishwasher or slow internet speeds.

    Had some of my best conversations on the banks of the Diamantina pulling in the yellowbellies, scaling gutting, straight on the hotplate above the open fire. And as we shar penned the sheath knaves prior to the pig hunt the tension rose, the conversation got more serious until silence descended. Everyone knew their role, adrenalin began to flow and we looked at each other thinking “I know they’ve got my back”. Don’t think they thought that about me as I was a city boy but after a few trips they knew I had. 35 before I made manhood with the above tests but my piece de resistance was the ability to pick the best cow pads to smoke on the fire all night and keep the mosquitoes away. Got a Y shaped, elasticated, hand held item in the glove box and marbles in case I fancy a game of marbles. Trusty old knave under the footwell mat and have only needed it since returning to the big smoke to create pet food from occasional fresh roadkill which is also excellent for jerkie.

    ABC Online – an extremist hate site – runs lavish feature interview with mentally ill American pervert who blames Trump for not being able to use the little girls toilets anymore. (Like he could under Obama).

    When Donald Trump revoked Obama-era guidelines allowing transgender students to use the gendered bathroom of their choice, Cassils started stockpiling [his] urine.

    For 200 days, the Canadian-born, US-based sculptor and performance artist (who uses gender neutral pronouns) collected [his] own and others’ urine — with the initial plan of sending it to the White House (their lawyer advised against it), but ultimately with the aim of turning it into a piece of protest art
    .

    The result is a minimalist cubic sculpture holding 200 gallons of yellow-brown urine, which, when exhibited, is paired with audio from the Supreme Court case brought by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of Virginian transgender boy Gavin Grimm, against his county school board…

    “It seems like a small thing [denying transgender people access to their bathroom of choice], but it’s metaphoric and it’s indicative of a larger level of control,” [he explains]…

    With Mr Trump’s administration threatening transgender people’s right to work in the military and questioning the very definition of gender, Cassils said it was both an important and daunting time to be a transgender artist.

    It is a huge indictment on modern Aussie society that so many boys grow up never having caught a fish, shot a rabbit, helped butcher a sheep, lit a campfire, slept in a swag, mended a fence, gone swimming in a dam or river, pulled down a motor, chopped some firewood, and all the manly things that boys and young men should be doing as a matter of course.

    When this country reverts to an economic smoking ruin, with no reliable power, the kids will all be doing this in spades through necessity rather than as a character building exercise. There’ll be no whinging about emptying the dishwasher or slow internet speeds.

    And the girls won’t miss out either. Carrying water and wood on their heads will stiffen their spines.

    There’s a short ‘comment’ piece by ‘Hemingway’ Fitzsimmons in this morning’s Canberra Times about the NSW elections. I can’t find it on-line but it is doubtless featured in other Fairfax papers.

    The article is in any case of no interest in terms or originality, depth of analysis or content, but it does provided some more examples of Fitz’s slovenly and senile prose.

    One Chris Minns is described as ‘the hard rising Labor star fro Kogarah’. I’ve no idea what ‘hard rising’ means, but it sounds mildly obscene.

    Short bets on banks point to slump

    Michael Roddan Reporter


    Sliding house prices and faltering economic conditions have sparked a resurgence in the “widow maker” bet, as fund managers pour millions into short positions against the major banks and regional lenders.

    A flood of money betting on a housing implosion has coincided with a warning from global ratings agency Moody’s that tumbling apartment and house prices will push more borrowers into default.

    Bank shares have already been hammered through the royal commission over the past year, but international fund managers expect stock prices to fall further.

    Over the past three months, the slice of bank shares that are held short has risen by an average 50 basis points. Short selling is the practice of investors selling borrowed shares in the hope of buying the stock back later at a lower price to make a profit.

    National Australia Bank, where the stock price has fallen 15 per cent over the past year, posted an 80-basis-point increase in short interest over the past month alone.

    Commonwealth Bank is the most shorted bank, with 2.1 per cent of its shares held short. The smaller, regional lenders which have a larger exposure to mining-dependent economies are also being targeted. Short interest in Bendigo Bank has risen 150 basis points to 7 per cent over the past three months. Bets against Bank of Queensland have jumped by the same margin to 8 per cent.

    Deutsche Bank analyst Matthew Wilson said the amount of time short-sellers were covering other positions had also increased to 11 days and was “now higher than the ASX200 average” of eight days, with CBA shares ranking the highest.

    Mr Wilson said the main threat to the sector was the increased likelihood of a stalling in credit or a “funding crisis”, but he also raised concerns this week about a major flaw in the data ­collected by the prudential ­regulator, which could significantly understate the average balance of a loan by failing to adjust for split loans — where mortgages are divided up into multiple parts.

    “APRA appears to have a data problem — the number of mortgages is up 75 per cent since March 2008, yet population is up only 18 per cent over the same period,” Mr Wilson said.

    Moody’s this week said the number of borrowers defaulting on their loans was likely to rise over the coming year as house prices declined. Loans more than a month overdue had already risen to 1.58 per cent from 1.49 per cent over the last three months of 2018.

    Moody’s analyst Alena Chen said “declining house prices, high debt levels and the conversion of interest-only mortgages to principal and interest mortgages” were to blame for the expected rise in arrears.

    Shaw and Partners analyst Brett Le Mesurier said house prices — which have fallen by double digits in Sydney and Melbourne — were vulnerable to a further squeeze on growth in rental prices.

    “A looming problem is an economic downturn which would adversely affect employment and, therefore, rents. It would also provide an unwelcome catalyst for a rising bad debt charge,” Mr Le Mesurier said.

    Meanwhile, the powerful Council of Financial Regulators has knocked back a royal commission recommendation to extend legal protections to larger firms that would prevent lenders tipping businesses into default amid fears it could further reduce banks’ appetite to lend.

    Jerome Corsi celebrates end of Russia probe, says he feels ‘vindicated’ for not giving in to Mueller’s investigators

    Conservative author Jerome Corsi declared he’s “vindicated” after the Special Counsel Robert Mueller ended the Russia investigation and recommends no new indictments.

    Corsi has been in the crosshairs of the Mueller probe since last year when he was accused of lying under oath to Mueller’s investigators, but was never indicted.

    Speaking on Friday following the news that Mueller submitted his report to the Justice Department, he said that he and his family are pleased that the investigation ended with him not getting charged in the end.

    “We feel vindicated,” Corsi told CNN. “I did nothing wrong.”

    Corsi, the former Washington bureau chief of the conspiracy theory outlet InfoWars, was offered a deal with investigators that would have required him to plead guilty to perjury.

    But he refused the deal on the basis that he could not lie about something he knew to be false, even if it meant living out his life in prison.

    “I went in there to cooperate with them. They treated me as a criminal,” Corsi told the outlet. “I consider this entire investigation to be fraudulent. I’m glad it’s over.”

    Corsi sued the special counsel last year, accusing Mueller of leaking grand jury items and various constitutional violations, including illegal surveillance.

    According to the lawsuit, Mueller tried to get Corsi to give testimony that he said is false. He’s seeking $100 million in actual damages and $250 million in damages due to injury to his reputation.

    Corsi told CNN that he won’t volunteer in the trial of his former close associated Roger Stone and will only appear if he’s subpoenaed.

    It’s a mystery
    Low inflation continues to challenge old theories of economy

    It is pretty incredible when you consider the screams of hyperinflation when the large central Banks QE’ed.
    The CB’s are screwing up again because they’ve made the 2% inflation target a ceiling rather than a target, which it is supposed to be. They just aren’t prepared to be loose enough to allow the target to be reached.

    One fact in monetary economics is that a central bank with a fiat currency is able to set and reach any inflation rate it wants.
