    What a great idea!

    Let’s have “communities” across the Outback.

    There won’t be any jobs there, so we’ll pay everyone the dole.

    We’ll also put in nurses, police, and schools, and then see what happens.

    That most of the kids won’t go to school, having the role model of (often absent) dads and mums to follow, is OK though….

    Alarming rise in truancy numbers across the Northern Territory

    Thousands of kids are missing out on going to school each day in the Northern Territory, with attendance rates plummeting as low as 18 per cent in some areas.

    NATASHA EMECK, NT News

    Thousands of kids are missing out on going to school each day in the Northern Territory, with attendance rates plummeting as low as 18 per cent in some areas.

    Attendance rates have declined across 90 government schools in the NT, according to the latest available Department of Education data.

    The figures show up to 30 schools had rates under 50 per cent during term two this year.

    But it’s the new term three statistics that have Barkly mayor Steve Edgington worried.

    He said the school attendance had become so bad in Tennant Creek that up to 200 students a day were not going to school.

    It’s a significant number considering only 513 students are enrolled across the remote town’s primary and high school this year.

    “Those are shocking numbers,” Mr Edgington said.

    “When you combine that with the escalating property crime and overcrowding in Tennant Creek — it’s only a matter of time before we’re faced with another crisis.”

    In term three, student attendance fell at Tennant Creek High School plunged to 56 per cent — 10 per cent worse than it was five years ago.

    Attendance also fell by four per cent at the Tennant Creek Primary School over the same period with 63 per cent.

    When asked, an Education Department spokeswoman told the Sunday Territorian the Government could not provide the term three statistics for all schools for another week as Education Minister Selena Uibo was yet to see them, instead providing data for just Tennant Creek.

    Ms Uibo said the Gunner Government had initiatives in place to boost student attendance in Tennant Creek.

    “In early 2019, we invested in the expansion of Clontarf to Tennant Creek Primary School, which has already shown significant improvement in attendance,” she said.

    “In the current financial year, we have invested $2 million for a dedicated Clontarf and Stars space at Tennant Creek High School.

    “These valuable programs have been proven to dramatically increase attendance and school completion rates.”

    Schools on Groote Eylandt continued to have the lowest rates across the NT in term two, including the Angurugu School (18 per cent) and the Alyarrmandumanja Umbakumba School (28.6 per cent).

    Attendance also slipped further at the Papunya School which has dropped from 68 per cent in 2010 to 35 per cent in term two this year.

    Over at Quadrant, Peter O’Brien takes down attempts to defend Pascoe, with A ‘Dark Emu’ Ally Flips the Bird at Truth

    Seems Jacinta Price is the latest to question Pascoe’s claims of aboriginal ancestry, and his claims that they were farmers, rather then hunter gatherers.

    And here I was thinking Kerry Stokes’ Seven West Media was a little more conservative than your average media outfit.

    Yes.

  6. Knuckle Dragger

    NT truancy rates. Hahahaaaa.

    First, the powers that be have to distinguish actual ‘truancy’ – ie, the kids being up and about and deciding to go on crazy adventures instead of turning up to school, a la the storybooks, as opposed to kids being half-clothed, unfed and trying to get some zeds in because Auntie and Uncle and all the cousin-brothers were beating the suitcase out of each other all night.

    The wallopers tried to help in Tennant once when I was flogging the dogs there. They’d send a crew round, bundle all the kids they could find into the wagon and drop them off at school.

    Lasted two weeks. The ‘teachers’ hated it, and you could hear the screaming, rhyming with ‘Molen Renerations’ from Adelaide.

  7. they were farmers

    they invented: the tractor, the stump jump plough and roundup (but someone else patented it)

  8. Roger

    …the sooner those who purport to administer this country realise this, the better we all will be.

    It’s not just indigenous policy, alas.

    Who’s brave enough to put the multikulti genie back in the bottle?

    And we’ll soon have a Muesli political party too (I believe there was an attempt to form one a few years back in western Sydney – not sure if it got off the ground).

  9. Knuckle Dragger

    Peter,

    It ain’t the teev itself. That, at least, works.

    For now.

    Almost all of those men are aged over 40, were born in Australia and picked up the virus having unprotected sex with women overseas, most commonly in South-East Asia.

    Cyclists have HIV and are gay.

    I thought it was established a couple of years ago that the problem wasn’t being gay in itself, rather the big cause of HIV transmission was anal sex. It’s just that gays did that more often than straights.

    That would fit in with the upsurge in over 40’s hetero age group going to overseas fleshpots.
    I doubt they go to all that effort and expense for vanilla sex.

  19. Stimpson J. Cat

    rather the big cause of HIV transmission was anal sex.

    Cycling, aka sitting on a bike seat for long periods of time after having shaved your legs and wearing Lycra is a gateway to anal sex.

    Jacinta Price on Outsiders this morning, saying she is quite proud at being descended from hunter-gatherers…

    No video of Price. Instead, this post from her. Where are the Left to join her in condemning cultural appropriation?

    ” All of this demonstrates the utter ignorance surrounding Pascoe and the ABC’s lack of knowledge of traditional Aboriginal culture. To be blunt it is all utterly insulting when anyone with half a brain or someone who actually lives the culture can see right through this story tellers fantasises and embellishments.

    Aside from perpetuating the idea that Hunter-Gatherer society was nothing more than simple and primitive Pascoe has no understanding what so ever of what the Jukurrpa (Dreaming) is about. Jukurrpa underpins all of Aboriginal society. Jukurrpa does for Aboriginal people what the bible does for Christians. It explains the creation which for us is ongoing and maintained through ceremony not farming. Jukurrpa provides the law we must live by and most importantly Jukurrpa gives the Hunter-Gatherer a map and detailed understanding of ones country in order to be able to survive in it.

    No where within any Jukurrpa stories that I know of is there evidence of farming and agricultural practices. No where within any Jukurrpa stories that I know is there a creator ancestor who practices farming or agriculture with the skills needed to pass down to descendants.

    It is insulting that Pascoe attempts to liken our culture to European culture disregarding our own unique and complex way of life which evolved to suit our environment. In fact the only other culture that can be likened to ours is that of the Kalahari Bushmen.

    Our traditional culture is under attack by those who are completely removed from it. Even if Pascoe does have Aboriginal heritage it does not make him an expert. No one knows a culture like those who live it and he certainly has never ever lived it. Too often those who have never lived it but claim it go unchallenged or are simply taken on face value particularly by the ABC. This is the danger we face from PC culture, woke culture and cancel culture. It is the perpetuation of lies destroying culture in the name of Political Correctness.

    Shame on you ABC for destroying my traditional and my every day Australian culture!”

    In reality it’s not an either-or proposition. Men who contract HIV while on holiday in Southeast Asia return and then are a risk of passing it on within Australia.

    Tinder, Bumble, CoffeeMeetsBagel, and all the other dating apps should come with an HIV health warning!

    They would tell you how and when to prune things, what to plant, how to feed and nurture plants and (gasp) how to use relatively benign chemicals to commit bugocide on a grand scale.
    Alas, now it is wall-to-wall ‘stainability lectures with lots of tut-tutting at the mere suggestion of applying things like white oil to the garden.

    You will not be fit enough, Lizzie. This is high altitude trekking. I have watched men much younger and fitter than me keel over today, just on the steps. Take the train, stay in the five star (with hot spring) and take a leisurely stroll around the site with a guide.

    Calli, you need some coca leaf tea.
    Honestly, that’s what it’s used for – altitude sickness. You can chew the leaf, but IMSMC, you also need a bit of something alkaline to help extract the magic ingredient.

    1. Where do you stand on Grey Nurse Sharks, and Dog Pool Ramps?
    2. Have you shopped at Aldi?
    3. Do you consider Essendon to be a lying team of cheating drug using junkies led by a chemist?

    Have you noticed that catastrophic climate temperatures of never before experienced severity only seem to happen, er sorry, be predicted, over high voter population areas like Sydney and Melbournistan?

    We’d fix catastrophic climate change just like that.

    Calli, you need some coca leaf tea.

    I’ve had some, Winston. I don’t get altitude sickness as badly as others. It affects people in different ways. I just get a fleeting deja vu sensation, the Beloved gets very short of breath. Others vomit or sway, some collapse.

    Today, on the way back from the tour, I passed some Inka Trail porters with their loads. They had cheeks bulging with the leaf.

    Twitter chief Jack Dorsey announces plans to move to Africa

    Twitter chief Jack Dorsey said this week that he plans to move to Africa for up to six months next year. The tech executive announced the planned move following a month-long trip visiting entrepreneurs on the continent.

    “Sad to be leaving the continent … for now. Africa will define the future (especially the bitcoin one!),” Dorsey tweeted from Addis Ababa on Wednesday. “Not sure where yet, but I’ll be living here for 3-6 months mid 2020. Grateful I was able to experience a small part.”

  50. Geriatric Mayfly

    This is high altitude trekking. I have watched men much younger and fitter than me keel over today, just on the steps

    There was a belief that fit, young healthy males were more prone to altitude sickness. My lad, at 16, proved the point at 4.5 000 m up Kilimanjaro. When I mentioned this in polite company, it became obvious that males could not lay claim to this exclusive malady and I was told the statistic derived from the fact, that not enough women climbed to such heights to compare and contrast.

    Zimbabwe ‘on brink of man-made starvation’, UN warns

    More than 60% of the country’s 14 million people are considered food-insecure, according to the findings.

    Hyperinflation, poverty, natural disasters and economic sanctions were among the identified causes.

    Women and children were “bearing the brunt of the crisis” with 90% of children aged six months to two years not consuming enough food.

    Hilal Elver, the UN’s special rapporteur on the right to food, reported her findings following an 11-day visit to the country.

    Chronic malnutrition is endemic throughout the country, in rural and urban areas.

    A horse will fix your fat garden Leigh.

    Climate change is making horses fat

    Gillies Moffat, director of a veterinary centre in Hythe, Hampshire, said the wetter and warmer climate has meant the animal’s staple food has grown more rapidly than in the past.

    Horses should be moved into bare paddocks, vets have said, because an abundance of grass caused by climate change is making them fat.

    So there you go, any time a PETA person says horse racing is bad tell them it’s needed to save the horses from getting fat due to climate change. Then take a step back in case their brains explode.

    One of the expats lives locally. He says the pattern is that the breeding stock was slaughtered and eaten, ditto the seed grain. The women till the ground with hoes, in the same fashion as their great grandmothers. The men sit in the shade, drinking beer, and telling each other how brave they were in the “Bush War” (which ended before most of them were even born.) Last thing at night, there’s generally an all in brawl, the participants stagger of to their huts, and the process is repeated next day.

    It’s an anti-masturbation movement which grew out of the incel phenomenon, that allies itself with wowser women’s anti-porn movements such as the one which declared Toowoomba A City Free From Porn.

    Oh puhleease! Anyone fapping it out three times a day does NOT have any biomechanical disfunction.

    They might find themselves nervous the first time with a real man or woman, but any half decent partner will give you a bit of time and space when you need it. If they treat you like shit on the first date, then do yourself a favour and dodge that bullet because there WILL be others and if you come right back then expect to be treated like shit the rest of your life.

    Having a lonely wank is sure thing preferable to finding yourself behind the shed with a rifle in your mouth after a long and pointless one sided relationship. People saying “real men do blah blah” are manipulative fucktards and should be treated accordingly.

    Thousands of kids are missing out on going to school each day in the Northern Territory, with attendance rates plummeting as low as 18 per cent in some areas.

    Suppose it was a local coffee shop and they said, “Thousands of customers walk right past our shop, don’t stop, don’t buy anything!”

    Suppose that shop then proposed a government officer to round up customers and push them into the shop … that would be quite reasonable, right? Right?

    Apparently a few years ago there was a panic in US Evangelical circles about whether their wives were secretly reading ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’.

    At my local church polling booth this year for the first time there were no home made jams for sale at the election day fete. This was, I was informed, because most of the old ladies that made them had died or gone into care. At the same time I couldn’t help noticing the large number of copies of 50 Shades.. on sale at the book stall.

    Coincidence? I think not.

    Local tennis club had an inauguration of the new grounds, after relocating from the old central spot. The work of a decade, $5m churned through- Margaret Court invited to cut the ribbon, because she lives just up the coast a bit and is the GOAT after all.
    And like clockwork the local “Pride” group were triggered, devastated- ie disempowered. They’d just months before shut down the main road so that twelve dags could drag and waggle their way down in a Pride Parade, watched by no-one and some schoolkids and some very questionable schoolteachers who were meant to be in loco parentis. I was generally aginst it, but tolerated it because I was sure it would demonstrate to the kids that acting gay- as opposed to being homosexual- was laaaame.
    Anyway, after they piped up and tried to schreech the local youth band out of the gig, the tennis club outmanoeuvred them brilliantly- set up a sham podium inside the new clubhouse, then hemmed them in when the real speeches occurred out on the grass. Just because they tried to unperson Court doesn’t mean they were uninvited themselves.
    The local paper put the photo of all four of them- average age 55, mainly LILsbians- on page two. One idiot with a beard dressed in a nun’s habit, a bint in a polyester Cleopatra wig with a purple face-paint Van Dyke…… why were they so deliberately uglified? I’m sure that the story taught more readers about the intolerant and tiny core of all the fuss. I noticed that one named demonstrator is the DiL of the photographer.

  99. Dave in Marybrook

    And now Tennis Australia has announced into a weekend news vacuum that the celebration of fifty years since Margaret Court’s Grand Slam will be about her sporting achievements, and not about her homophobia.
    A cowardly routine. It could have simply let the inevitable protestors make their point, but the board had to write themselves into the headlines before someone else claimed the high ground.

    There must be something in the Minnesota water

    A Republican challenging U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., in 2020 blasted Twitter on Friday after having her accounts permanently suspended this week following a tweet suggesting that the incumbent congresswoman should be hanged if found guilty of treason.

    Danielle Stella wrote on her campaign Twitter account Tuesday, “If it is proven @IlhanMN passed sensitive info to Iran, she should be tried for #treason and hanged,” The Washington Examiner reported.

    She later added a link to a blog post that included a drawing of a stick figure being hanged.

    A pro-Trump Republican candidate for Congress who is aiming to unseat Ilhan Omar in Minnesota has been charged with a felony after allegedly stealing from stores.

    Danielle Stella was arrested twice this year in Minneapolis suburbs over allegations that she shoplifted items worth more than $2,300 from a Target and goods valued at $40 from a grocery store. She said she denied the allegations.

    I don’t think PJW was rallying against that particularly in the video.

    What motivates people who want to ban porn?

    Fortunately we have available to us the submissions to the Senate Standing Committees on Environment and Communications’ inquiry into the ‘Harm being done to Australian children through access to pornography on the Internet’, which invariably received submissions beyond merely children’s exposure.

    So, to understand where they’re coming from, we can start with this submission which reads, in part:

    “Public dress standards are pornographic; especially beaches and swimming pools. Some women are negatively affected by this exposure, but most men are affected and are thus effectively subjected to constant sexual arousal stimulus unless they walk around looking at the ground or the sky. Weak-minded women (especially vulnerable pubescent girls) have been persuaded to believe it is reasonable for them to dress like prostitutes in public, yet also believe that it is wrong for men to be sexually provoked by such behaviour.

    […]

    Product catalogues and shop merchandising for underwear are so public that these forms of pornography are extremely difficult to avoid. Catalogues are delivered to all households, and shopping centre merchandising is explicitly designed to attract the attention of any who pass by, so children are easily exposed to these invasive forms of pornography. Again, it is arrogant and foolish for women to believe that men will not be sexually provoked by these practices; including men who are frustrated that they have to avert their eyes all the time.”

    And then this submission:

    “Over the period of my life,and I am 74years old, I have seen that the media has abused our women. When I was young women shown to lower their necklines and raise their hem lines giving greater vision of their sexual nature to men. Men have a great sexual urge that is heightened by seeing women’s breasts. Today this is a common sight on bill boards and newspapers and in the media in general.”

    So, what motivates them? I think we can safely say it’s an earnest desire to save the world from the obscenities found at beaches and swimming pools, bill boards and newspapers, and of course Kmart catalogues.

  110. dover_beach

    Juan, there are likely to be a number of reasons and motivations behind any issue, so to present those above as predominant is intellectually dishonest. Even so, it is beyond dispute that what is presently deemed acceptable in advertising has move significantly in the last fifty years.

  111. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    So, what motivates them? I think we can safely say it’s an earnest desire to save the world from the obscenities found at beaches and swimming pools, bill boards and newspapers, and of course Kmart catalogues.

    As the Mullahs would definitely also agree. Burkas for all is the solution. Then young men would look at pornography to get some idea of what lay underneath, and to receive pornographic schooling in ‘how to do it’.

    Which turns them into pumping machines. And that is what’s mainly wrong with pornography.
    A sense of reciprocity in the act tends to be lost. Seeing and knowing some real women can act as a corrective to this, but not if we walk around in shapeless sacks terrified of raising our eyes or talking honestly about our needs. Let alone feeling the wind in our hair and on our legs and arms and necks. You don’t have to overdo the provocative aspects in all of this exposure, which mass marketing tends to do; it’s a question of not overdoing the normal cultural proscriptions about acceptable dress for where and when.

    Who to believe:

    How parliament lost its integrity over bill to rein in CFMMEU
    Paul Kelly The Australian November 30, 2019
    It has been a devastating and unexpected defeat for the Morrison government. The word betrayal rang through Parliament House late Thursday. This was a vital bill — to torpedo the law-breaking model of the construction union. The government felt it had an understanding with Pauline Hanson, only to see her vote at the end with Labor and the unions. “Some kind of deal has been done and these things don’t stay secret,” Attorney-General and Industrial Relations Minister Christian Porter told Inquirer about Hanson’s backflip. Scott Morrison and Porter will keep fighting. The government will re-prosecute the bill at some point after the 34-34 Senate deadlock that meant its failure. Yet this vote will not be easily reversed…

    Or Malcolm Roberts eviscerating the CFMMEU:

    https://www.facebook.com/malcolmrobertsonenation/videos/434536914166312/

    And there’s more! The CFMMEU as it is now known, not only represents workers in mines like Mount Arthur, it is in partnership with the NSW MC – the employer body – as owner of the workers compensation insurer!

    Yes! The CFMMEU part-owns the workers compensation insurer for coal miners, called Coal Mines Insurance, and this same CFMMEU owned insurer was the one that refused to pay injured Hunter Valley coal miners their lawful entitlements. This is a clear conflict of interest.

    So the CFMMEU stands for money not people, not its members!

I have mine; they are private and staying so. 😉

    Even so, it is beyond dispute that what is presently deemed acceptable in advertising has move significantly in the last fifty years.

    A local council should be completely within its rights to demand the takedown of a bill board that is considered obscene or generally offensive to the local community. It’s a democratic process, there’s plenty of room for participation and there’s nothing wrong with standards being different from time to time, or from place to place because each local community might have local preferences, and that’s part and parcel with a diverse nation. Equally so, the local council might have a requirement that new buildings remain in character with the existing neighbourhood, or might have a preference for three bedroom family homes on quarter acre blocks, or might think that roundabouts are better than traffic lights.

    These things effect the people who live in that area, so it should be collectively be decided by the people who live in that area AND NO ONE ELSE.

    However, what people do in the privacy of their own bedroom (be that my themselves or in the company of consenting adults) is nobody’s business, and the State can get stuffed if they want to poke their nose in. We should start a “None of Your Beeswax” party … that might get the message across.

    The problem with porn, aside from the fact it burns their little brains out and turns them into drooling libertarians, is it gives a wrong impression of the act: if these poor sods ever find themselves faced with a real woman they will be grinding away, boring, monotonous. When instead, you need to attack that thing with gusto. Break stuff, throw the bird around a bit, use every room in the house, make her bark, drag her up to the roof. Make the neighbours watch, and passing strangers cower in fear.

    Speaking of road-lice, a few years ago there was a car sticker campaign in my area sponsored by the local Mudrock rag.
    The stickers read “Share the Road” with a picture of a car and a bicycle.
    I had 1,000 stickers custom made that were identical except for two small differences.
    1. They were slightly bigger than the original stickers.
    2. They read “Share the Rego”.
    I handed out a couple of hundred over a couple of years.
    The rest were handed out at car shows by a mate who was a judge at said shows over the same time period.
    Punters used them to stick over the top of other random motorists’ “Share the Road” stickers.
    Some of these other motorists didn’t seem to notice the subtle change to the message they were selling from their back bumpers.
    I still see them around from time to time, five or so years on.

    I just asked Hairy if he knew what ‘Fifty Shades’ was about.

    That most of the kids won’t go to school, having the role model of (often absent) dads and mums to follow, is OK though….

    Good advice, seeing as it’s No Dildo December.

  175. Knuckle Dragger

    Peter,

    The CCFHMS is a spent force for now. It is riven by internal dissent and overreach.

    It must still be watched, like a taipan run over by a B-double.

    It is not the beginning of the end. It MAY be the end of the beginning.

  176. Knuckle Dragger

    ‘No Dildo December’

    Excellent point. These are the same people that, pre-flounce, advocated that sex robots be banned lest they engender a lack of appreciation for real women.

    You’ve got to be kidding, Knuckles.
    Nota may be gone, but a couple of months ago both Struth and Lizzie declared their allegiance.
    So their numbers are actually growing. You know – like an infectious disease.

    The rain dancers are whiter than Bruce Pascoe.

    And the women are dressed like a white Pocahontas.

    Yes, Peter, but none speak for each other any more.

    That was dealt with during the Great Smiting of ’19.

    Plus, nota’s on a break for family reasons as far as I can gather.

    In that respect I certainly wish her well.

  182. Knuckle Dragger

    They’ll be batting under lights, jupes.

    We’ll see how that works out.

  183. Peter, formerly known as Memoryvault

    none speak for each other any more.

    They don’t have to, Knuckles. They can be quite deadly individually.
    Try mentioning “shaved vagina” then duck for cover.

    Best to be on the safe side and stick with kindy level poo and fart jokes for the rest of the evening.

    Flat track bullies have decided to enforce the follow-on against the Pakistan under 19s after a day of careless ignominy in the field. A good thrashing would do them good. Alas, the bullies will probably get away with it.

    Right , the firey’s have come and gone and I didn’t need to get the tractor/sprayer or the backhoe out.
    Which is noice, coz I was sick to death of bloody firefighting years ago.
    Looks like a bird might’ve arced out flying between the local distributor lines.
    The local saurus cranes are prone to it – their wingspan can bridge the gap between high-voltage conductors.
    They come to earth like a giant bbq chook.
    But this wasn’t a saurus crane – something smaller, can’t see the remains.

    But anyway, power out, so no water pump, no fans, no NBN.
    Using the Android phone as a wifi hotspot.
    If the power isn’t back shortly I’ll roll out the whole-house gennie and make some carbon!

    So to part one of the four-part AG post…

    The Attorney-General’s Department’s Director – Foreign Influence Transparency Scheme, Institutional Integrity Branch replied to my earlier enquiries about listing my area’s Excretion Retention coven convenor as an agent of foreign influence by serving me up some “ring the hotline” boilerplate.

    With this…

    Thank you for your recent emails to Sarah Chidgey, Deputy Secretary, Integrity and International Group of 13 and 26 November regarding the application of the Foreign Influence Transparency Scheme (the scheme) to the Extinction Rebellion Cairns group and its convenor Geoff Holland.

    Per our previous correspondence (attached) the department acknowledges your concerns and takes all reports seriously. However we are not able to comment on specific cases or matters. If you would like to discuss the general operation of the scheme a member of the team would be happy to discuss and can be contacted on (02) 6141 3222 between 9am-12pm and 2pm-5pm, Monday to Friday.

    If you believe this to be an urgent matter of foreign interference please contact the National Security Hotline on 1800 123 400.

    Yours sincerely,

    Anne Scott
    Director – Foreign Influence Transparency Scheme
    Institutional Integrity Branch
    Attorney-General’s Department

    So I wrote to Sarah Chidgey again.

    G’day Sarah

    Would you please thank Anne Scott for me and tell her I’ve been fobbed off by bureaucrats before? Ta.

    Now, back to Extinction Rebellion. The staff of our AG’s department clearly have a hair-trigger when it comes to accusing Aussies of being agents of foreign influence (case in point: Tony Abbott and Andrew Cooper) but you don’t seem keen on listing anarcho-socialists. That worries me.

    Look, I’m not asking you to comment to me or to comment publicly on Geoff Holland’s matter specifically.

    But I am asking you to reassure me and the wider public that you are actually working under the FITS Act to list Extinction Rebellion and all of its Aussie operatives generally.

    To me, that seems to be vitally important to restore public confidence in the AG’s department after your CPAC debacle.

    Anyway, I probably should have given you some supporting info – not that I want to do your work for you, of course.

    Here’s Extinction Rebellion’s website – https://rebellion.earth/declaration/

    We hereby declare the bonds of the social contract to be null and void, which the government has rendered invalid by its continuing failure to act appropriately. We call upon every principled and peaceful citizen to rise with us.

    Here’s their book – https://www.bookdepository.com/This-Is-Not-Drill-Extinction-Rebellion/9780141991443?ref=pd_detail_2_sims_cat_bs_1

    Extinction Rebellion is a global activist movement of ordinary people, demanding action from Governments. This is a book of truth and action. It has facts to arm you, stories to empower you, pages to fill in and pages to rip out, alongside instructions on how to rebel – from organising a roadblock to facing arrest.

    This is one of the co-founders, Roger Hallam; he and his colleagues aren’t Aussies – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Hallam_(activist)

    Julian Roger Hallam (born 4 May 1966)[1] is a British environmental activist, a co-founder of Extinction Rebellion[2][3] and cooperative federation organisation Radical Routes.[4]

  197. Cardimona

    A former Head of the Metropolitan Police Counter Terrorism Command reported this about Extinction Rebellion – (page 10 of 76 in the pdf file) https://policyexchange.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Extremism-Rebellion.pdf

    Extinction Rebellion rejects both our representative democracy and the liberal free market economy and explicitly seeks to overturn both; its leading figures have been clear that these objectives are indivisible from their demands on the environment. For instance, Extinction Rebellion’s ‘Declaration of Rebellion’ states: “We, in alignment with our consciences and our reasoning, declare ourselves in rebellion against our government and the corrupted, inept institutions that threaten our future… the wilful complicity displayed by our Government has shattered meaningful democracy and cast aside the common interest in favour of short-term gain and private profits”.

    From that report; about Roger Hallam… (page 11 of 76 in the pdf) https://policyexchange.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Extremism-Rebellion.pdf

    A leading figure in Extinction Rebellion, Roger Hallam, has spoken about people dying for its cause. In an address to one audience, he said: “we are not just sending out e-mails and asking for donations. We are going to force the governments to act. And if they don’t, we will bring them down and create a democracy fit for purpose… and yes, some may die in the process”.

    Here’s a report on their paid personnel – https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7566515/Extinction-Rebellion-files-reveal-climate-zealots-paid-400-week.html

    Extinction Rebellion activists are being paid up to £400-a-week to lead protests
    Activists have been paid more than £200,000 since the start of the scheme
    The eco-protest group privately fears it could face six-figure tax bill from HMRC
    Tory MP calls on HMRC to launch an investigation into the group’s tax affairs

  198. Cardimona

    Part Three…

    Here’s some of their donors – https://notalotofpeopleknowthat.wordpress.com/2019/08/03/is-george-soros-funding-extinction-rebellion/#more-40718

    And on the Team 2 tab, listing major donors, we find an entry for George Soros. Intriguingly, the amount has been blanked out, the only donation where this has happened.

    Here’s their Australian branch’s demands – https://ausrebellion.earth/news/declaration-day-xr-australias-demands

    We hereby declare the bonds of the social contract, which the government has rendered invalid by their complete failure to protect us, to be null and void.
    We call upon every principled and peaceful citizen to rise with us. To be freed from oppression by the powerful few we will cast aside social divisions based upon race, ethnicity, class, sexuality, religion, and gender, and come together and fight for our lives. We will not allow corporate profiteers to dictate government decisions that place us and future generations in deadly peril.

    Part Four

    Here’s how to contact them – https://ausrebellion.earth/contact

    Finally, here’s a link to noble-cause corruption – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noble_cause_corruption

    And from your stock letter to me…

    Under the Act, registrable activities are parliamentary lobbying, general political lobbying, communications activity and disbursement activity. A foreign principal is a foreign government, a foreign political organisation, a foreign government related entity or a foreign government related individual.

    The scheme’s registration obligations apply equally to any person who undertakes registrable activities on behalf of a foreign principal for the purpose of political or governmental influence – this is regardless of which jurisdiction the foreign principal is from and regardless of the viewpoint being advanced.

    Can you do that, Sarah?
    Can you reassure patriotic Aussies that you’re applying the FITS Act to those who are agents of an anti-Australia foreign organisation?

    Calling a bureaucrat a fat stupid lard encrusted imbecile is a registrant activity. And the truth is no defence.

    Cohenite, no, I didn’t mention this to Malcolm Roberts.
    I sent him a copy of ScoMo’s reply to my questions about his tipping another billion into ruinables last week.
    I don’t want to swamp him.

    But Credlin mentioned the FITS Act on air, as did the Outsiders, so I sent them both copies of the full set of exchanges with the fat stupid lard encrusted imbeciles.

  211. Cardimona

    Jupes, I won’t; but I’ll let you know if I do get one.

  212. Old School Conservative

    Can you do that, Sarah?
    Can you reassure patriotic Aussies that you’re applying the FITS Act to those who are agents of an anti-Australia foreign organisation?

    Nope. All of Sarah’s staff are graduates of the ABC complaints department where they learned to stonewall, obfuscate, deny, and otherwise obstruct democracy.

  213. 132andBush

    Well done Cardimona.

    The rain dancers are whiter than Bruce Pascoe.

    Ha, ha.
    Just saw the opening of a new town square in Prahran on ABC news.
    Opened with a clap stick/gum leaf burning ceremony.
    The clapsticker was dressed in a blue shirt and trousers with a pallor which looked like his name might be Seamus or Dougald.
    No loincloth, no body paint, nothing.
    But I have no doubt he collected the standard fee of $456 for the job.

    Nitromethane was not known to be a high explosive until a railroad tanker car loaded with it exploded on June 1, 1958.[21] After much testing, it was realized that nitromethane was a more energetic high explosive than TNT

    The problem with porn, aside from the fact it burns their little brains out and turns them into drooling libertarians, is it gives a wrong impression of the act: if these poor sods ever find themselves faced with a real woman they will be grinding away, boring, monotonous. When instead, you need to attack that thing with gusto. Break stuff, throw the bird around a bit, use every room in the house, make her bark, drag her up to the roof. Make the neighbours watch, and passing strangers cower in fear.

    You’re referring to sheep. We got it.

    Naturally this phenomenon is not new.

    Throughout history men bent on martial endeavour used improvised and purpose built devices sometimes peculiar to their location and or culture.

    A personal favourite purpose built implement is the cast knuckle duster used in traditional Indian wrestling.

    I also remember a novel where one of the protagonists, when having to make a stand against some goombahs, grabbed a fly fishing rod and advised that it was his weapon of choice. In the book, he was quite an expert at casting, catching one goombah in the corner of the mouth.

    It has often been said, avoid a chef with a narwhal tusk.

    Actually, I don’t see Khan felled by the whale man. Or the fire extinguisher man. It’s a third man who pulls him down.

    Actually, I don’t see Khan felled by the whale man. Or the fire extinguisher man. It’s a third man who pulls him down.

    Presumably the convicted murderer.

    But he wouldn’t have been able to do it without the distraction provided by the narwhal tusk and fire extingisher wielders.

    I hope they each get civilian commendations for bravery.
