    Coronavirus updates: Face masks pulled from sale in Australia
    More than 200 types of face masks — many produced in China and registered by Australia’s medicines watchdog — have been dramatically withdrawn from sale.

    On its website, the TGA said: “Due to a rapid increase in demand for the manufacturing, importation and sale of face masks, there has been an increase in medical device inclusions in the ARTG, with many manufactured and imported from overseas.

    “Concerns have been raised about the quality and effectiveness of some products, particularly face masks.”

    The regulator said its post-market review of face masks “will validate if the devices included in the ARTG through the auto-inclusion process meet all the regulatory requirements and perform as intended.”

    Remember another tactic of the left is baiting.
    Making you look at the cow paddock while they are stealing your chook eggs.

    Right now the Gough saga is as ancient history as Numbers.

    We have a nation in the throws of socialist Alinsky style attack.
    The manufactured crisis is now coming back to NSW, then of course Qld and all done for our own good, and remember their tyrannical grip has not disappeared completely anywhere in Australia and now we are getting used to what they eagerly call the “new normal”
    It’s not my new fucking normal.
    Priorities…………………

    Thanks all who replied RE: St Gough.

    I consider myself edumated.

    The constant sesrching for validation by leftwits that we evil conservatives are just as venal and conspiratorial as they, reminds we of a good quote from Sun Tzu’s The Art of War-

    Know Yourself and know your Enemy,
    And you need not fear the outcome of a hundred battles.

    Know Yourself and not the Enemy,
    For every victory gained, you will suffer a defeat.

    If You know neither Yourself nor your Enemy,
    You will succumb in every battle.

    This is not incompetence or a failure of crisis management. It is crisis fabrication, a deliberate continuation of the viscous charade that is Covid-1984. All the Andrews regime has to do is produce some positive results from the worthless RNA tests and they have a “second wave” of Covid-19 “cases”. No one is actually ill apart from those that might have a common cold or seasonal flu. No one is dying from a deadly new super-infectious virus; but the ABC-Media Ministry of Truth will maintain the ramped-up levels of fear.

    Those words were written by a somebody else here, and not me, but it’s very well worded.

    It is an observation we all would make if we weren’t so hysterical with fear…….and cowardice, ….and lacking in integrity.

    Dan Andrews is loving every second of this, It’s a left wing union nerd boy’s dream come true.
    And Victoria is just the start…..again
    It was all predicted by myself and many others.
    Just wait we said, in a few weeks they’ll find an outbreak again, and they have , as expected.

    By the time next year rolls around you’ll have forgotten what democracy and the rule of law is all about and be constantly listening to every utterance of government, as it decrees unlawfully, what you have the right to do that day….as is the goal.

    This will never stop until it is fought and it will only get worse.
    Underneath many know this but a non existent plague is far better to believe in than reality.

    That part I wrote in response to it a few weeks ago.
    I,m sure we can dredge right back to March and find myself and others talking about them doing it again and again until we are totally beaten down.

    Now NSW……………………….no shit , if you couldn’t see that coming I have a bridge to sell you.

    One of the best things to do when confronted with a problem lawyer is to complain to the law society (yes I know they look after themselves) the said person is not “a fit and proper person and should be struck off”. Causes all sorts off problems for lawyer.

Raspail was aswarded the Jean Walter Prize for the whole of his work but Amazon now thinks he must not be read.

    For a company which made its name selling books Amazon seems very keen not to sell books.

    Meagre gruel
    Three terms of Coalition government – for what?
    James Allan

    4 July 2020

    Think back to 2013 when the Coalition came into office. Having won that election, and two more, under three different leaders/prime ministers, and hence having been in power for some seven years, what have these Coalition governments accomplished? I mean that question substantively not elector-ally. Yes, they’ve won three elections on the trot. But one hopes (wrongly, some- times) that politicians go into public life to accomplish things – to try to reshape the country in ways that will make it bet- ter according to the value systems and ideas about how the world works that they bring to the table. Fingers crossed, not too many of our politicians are just in it for the chauffeur-driven limos, the fame, the self-aggrandisement, etc. So in substantive terms, what has this seven- year-old series of Coalition governments accomplished?

    Take your time and ponder. I have. And what I’ve come up with is pretty mea- gre gruel. Top of my list, they stopped the boats. Thank you Mr Abbott. And they’ve struck some pretty good free trade agree- ments. (Ditto, mostly.) And Mr Morrison has been excellent confronting China of late and turning his back on Huawei.

    But if you try to say they’ve been a tax-cutting outfit, and manage to do so with a straight face, you should move to Los Angeles and look for acting work. We have high indi- vidual tax rates in this country. And as for corporate tax rates, what, we’re the OECD’s second or third highest? Mean- while I’d bet fewer than one Australian in a thousand could name why we had a double dissolution election. It was so fringe, so tangential, that no one remem- bers.

    Double dissolution elections should be for big things. Issues that are epoch defining and that can’t get through the Senate with its obtuse, obstreperous, big spending independents. And then there’s the other side of the ledger, the patent failures (and I mean failures for a party supposedly committed to smaller govern- ment, freedom of the individual, the little guy). Here, in no particular order, are the first ten I came up with in two minutes:

    1) Spending some 250 billion dollars on useless submarines that won’t be fit for purpose and won’t arrive for decades all to save one or two South Australian seats.

    2) Energy costs. When I arrived in early 2005 Australia’s were the lowest in the democratic world. Fifteen years later, over half of them under Coalition govern- ments, we have the world’s highest. One expects Labor to drink the renewables Kool Aid. One doesn’t expect the Liberal party to be over half-filled with renewa- bles, rent-seeking zealots who have done nothing to give this country even halfway affordable energy, but gloat about pumping water uphill.

    3) The ABC. Even in my decade and a half in this country it’s grown worse and worse, more and more one-sided. To say it has become the propaganda wing of the Greens party would be a tad unfair. But only a tad because sometimes you have to admit its political coverage could be writ- ten by Labor staffers. Here is a fact. Not a single presenter, producer or key player on any current affairs TV show is a conservative. That’s not true on the BBC. It’s not true on Canada’s CBC. Yet all of us on the right, half the country, have to pay taxes to fund this billion-dollar-a-year- plus behemoth that hates our views. It’s a disgrace and the Coalition does nothing. Does any reader believe that Mr Trump wouldn’t have fought to fix the ABC, made that a top priority

    4) Anything to do with individual freedom. Start with s.18C and the hate speech laws in this country. It’s a flat out disgrace we have to live in a country where offending someone is a pseudo- unlawful offence. Ditto for humiliating or insulting them. Yet most of the current Liberal party MPs in Canberra clearly could not care less. Some of them have said so more or less openly. And that attitude to basic individual freedom has manifested itself with religious freedom (I say that as an atheist you understand, but one who values freedom for them too). Oh, and with the incredibly heavy-handed (and, as each day’s new evidence is showing, needless lockdown) response to the Wuhan virus. Who would have guessed it would be a Coalition government that opted to lock down the country and destroy myriad people’s businesses, livelihoods, and, yes, lives? The Coalition can’t even inject some freedom into our labour relations, which are outdated and ranked 93rd in the world for flexibility.

    5) The NBN. What a joke! What a waste of money. It should have been shut down on day one of our side getting into office. If you have principles against gov- ernment-run behemoths, act on them!

    6) The universities. I work there. This is a universe with world’s high-est paid and in ratio terms most numer- ous administrators, a wasteland in terms of finding conservative academics, and no friend to free speech (contra Herr French). The Liberal party’s response? Let’s consult with VCs. Ya, that’ll fix the problem. (And for a full, book-length account of the dire state of our universi- ties see William Coleman’s edited collec- tion Campus Meltdown.)

    7/8) World’s highest per capita immigration. This ties in to the bogus claims about no recessions in three decades. We have been running a Ponzi scheme. There have been three recessions (before the corona virus) in per capita terms. Basically it’s stagnation, low wage growth if any, high taxes, and Keynesianism run riot. Good for the wealthy and big business.

    9) Appointments. From the High Court to the Human Rights Commission to the AAT to just about anything our side of politics has a lousy – make that a pathetic – record in appointing conserva- tives to anything. Throw up your hands in despair, readers.

    10) This one is more controversial but I think the Coalition has done a horrible job handling the Wuhan virus, from the lockdown to being pretty much the world’s biggest spending per capita responders to all the damage the government itself created.

    And that’s just the first ten. Point out any of these to most people on our side of politics and immediately you are presented with the same rebuttal. I call it ‘What About Laborism’. It goes like this: ‘Sure, we may be a pretty hopeless out- fit. We may be looking at our side’s worst political class of people in decades, one unwilling to fight for anything much and one even worse at the state level. But you know what? Labor would be worse. What about Shorten? What about Albo? What about Labor?’ And that’s true enough. True, and yet meagre and exiguous gruel, soon to be made worse in these coming trying times.

    Or as John Cleese was wont to say, sarcasm dripping down his chin, ‘that’s high praise indeed!’.

    Bloody hell Riccardo, there’s no need for that sort of fucking Language.

    The Australian people are duds.
    I understand the anger.
    I pulled into Griffiths with the Local media interviewing to meet the convoy.
    As I was being interviewed there was this fat moron in the back ground pacing back and forth and yelling sporadically…I hope you gunna speak up about this, I hope your gonna speak up about that, and still gutlessly in the background.
    He went to do it again but although not remembering exactly what I said, I just lost it with the prick and yelled at him to basically shut his mouth, as I was only a citizen like him and if he wanted to protest to get in his bloody vehicle and come along.

    I think Riccardo may be a bit annoyed at the apathy of Australians.
    The gutles, cowardice and apathy.
    We are not the American right that’s for sure.
    And after the by- election he wouldn’t be too happy but he should not have expected much.

    Yes Struth…I was quite shocked….Is Riccardo angry?

  24. Salvatore, Social Distance Martyr

    Bloody hell Riccardo, there’s no need for that sort of fucking Language.

    A serious Toastmasters style feedback on that short speech would be:
    Way too many “fukkin” in it.
    Starts off good, to maintain the impact & cut-through the spiel has to be worked on to remove 3/4 of the “fukkin” especially in the later part, coz by that time the uncommitted listener is having their ear dominated by the word, rather than by the passion & the message.

    I think Riccardo may be a bit annoyed at the apathy of Australians.

    He’s correct.
    We’re good Germans. Happens every time, no fightback, not when our guns were taken, not when the High Court gave away the land of thee but not of me (not where High Court Judges lived), when every stupid fukkin piece of red tape is introduced.

    You’ll see this apathy anywhere, e.g. at public meetings after the council has dug up the main street & put everybody out of business. The public goes along intending to be “really angry”. Instead of swinging a few council executives & elected mayors from a lamp-post, the crowd ends up passing a resolution of congratulations – coz “at least they’re having a go”

  25. Steve trickler

    Jesus wept and fvck me gently.
    Short of having the army carry out mass public executions, what could a Labor government possibly do worse by the Australian people, than has already been inflicted on them by the current Federal Liberal/National government over the past five months?

    And they haven’t even started with the “good” stuff yet.

    Again, thank you.
    Victorians are Australia’s Californians – taking their overwrought wrongology wherever they go.

    That way I can say what needs to be said without having to swat down the anti-BJ party’s bugman wannabe bully-boys.
    It’d be sweetly ironic to pick up some of their workers for handing out HTVs.

    I really enjoy getting together with him at the pub for a shouting match over glasses of orange juice, but it can be very frustrating trying to explain anything technical to him.

    You get angry when you give everything, or at least risk a fair bit, and lazy cowards stand back, do nothing and sneer.
    Australians would want to be given assurances from Riccardo that he was going to win before they give him their vote.
    I find the level of dumb astounding.
    In a country where your vote is sold on basically, until it supports one of the major parties, Australians will demand the world holding their one vote above you like it’s the keys to the city.
    Their one compulsory preferentially corrupted vote.
    And then do absolutely SFA while the country crumbles.
    I’m not fighting for them, but for myself and my kids.
    And for my own sanity and well being.

    The way his party operates means he can go in and challenge anything and it gets them out there.
    You basically fund yourself as a candidate.
    He of course did not expect to win, but he would have been depressed by the questioning and the incredible dumbness of it.
    He would have been angered by the death wish most Australians have in being rusted ons and politically ignorant.
    Of course he didn’t expect to win.
    But just dealing with Australians is usually bad enough, but on a political level, I’d rather slide down a razor blade using my balls as brakes………………very frustrating and I am not sure he was actually ready for the level of apathy and stupid.

    Start with the previous Labor government that imposed virtual martial law over the entire nation, instantly throwing three million Australians out of work, all by press release on a Sunday afternoon.
    Then you can remind me which Labor government imposed a six week house arrest on pretty much the entire population.
    Follow that up with the Labor government that had people arrested for going to the beach, swimming, fishing, playing golf, attending church, having more than five people attend a wedding, or ten to funeral. Or even smooching with their latest squeeze in the privacy of their own home.

    That’s just some of the high points from Week One. Want me to keep going?

    The only thing that can save us is financial collapse. A run on the banks (all the banks) would mean governments couldn’t pay their public servants and police to do their dirty work.

    All pretty close to the mark, Dirk, apart from the above bit.

    Struth, I’ve put a pdf copy of the constitution on my phone so I can bring it up to show people quickly, regardless of signal strength.

    I have a paper copy I used to always carried in the truck, because transporting oversize loads especially, across state borders the pricks would always try it on over a number of issues.
    They rely on ignorance and they think all truckies are easy prey.
    That’s why I know 117 is better than the other sections regards border crossings.

    Oddly, but expected, Pauline was going to take on Palaschook regards the border being unconstitutional, but no one dares, not even Pauline to acknowledge that one exists.
    And I made sure she knew about section 117 exists so she has no excuse.
    Anyone reading knows it spells it out as clear as day.
    It is explicit and can be interpreted no other way.
    So they decide to go with 92 when that one is more freight related……….funny that.
    Why would you not use the section you know can’t be successfully beaten by the States?

    Because this is the real deal, the big takeover, and when the rule of law has gone, this is just now brute power and corruption ruling it.
    The pedo judges put there to be owned due to their filthy private lives must do the bidding of the scum running the joint, which mostly are not pollies.
    The warlords are in charge and we are getting the puppet show.

    On the subject of the Lees-Falconio beat-up by Channel Stokes.
    The driver behind this (convicted drug importer and ex-lawyer Andrew Fraser) deserves a bit of scrutiny.
    Fraser was the star witness in an investigation into a murder alleged to have been committed by Peter Dupas, and claims Dupas confessed to a fourth murder whilst they were in jail together.
    Dupas is already in the slot for three murders of women, and is undoubtedly pond-scum.
    However, Dupas is notoriously reluctant to admit anything to anybody, but supposedly sidles up to a mouthy, poncy, wannabe coke-head and casually admits to a fourth murder?
    Anyway, when Plod finally puts together the flimsy evidence in this fourth case and set up a trial, their hot-shot witness goes to water:-

    Mr Fraser, who served time in prison alongside Dupas, was the key witness in the prosecution’s case but he is too unwell to give evidence and withstand cross-examination.

    Oh.
    Mr “Been-In-Jail-Hardman” is afraid of 2 hours cross-exam, but well enough to strut for days in front of Channel Stokes cameras?

    When Plodes or other leftwingers accuse Trump of being authoritarian, remind them of this.

    WSJ

    Democracy Dies in Darkness, but Don’t Blame Trump
    His enemies warned there would be an all-out assault on freedom of speech. Then they launched one.

    Remember the grave warnings when Donald Trump was elected about how his presidency would usher in an unprecedented assault on freedom of expression?

    Ululations of orchestrated hysteria went up from the nation’s media. It was 1933 again. Late Weimar America would succumb to an authoritarian with a distinctive haircut and a penchant for intolerant rhetoric.

    A few weeks before the 2016 election, the Committee to Protect Journalists issued a thunderous warning: “A Trump presidency represents a threat to press freedom unknown in modern history.”

    “Democracy Dies in Darkness,” which some have noted sounds like the working title for an inferior James Bond movie, became the daily front-page leitmotif of a major newspaper, its reporters bravely committed to holding aloft the flickering lamp of freedom amid the gathering gloom of tyranny.

    Four years on, it’s clear the warnings were justified. Consider the state of free speech in Mr. Trump’s America. Newspaper editors are forced to quit because of pieces they’ve run. Academics are removed from positions for daring to dissent from the dominant orthodoxy. Corporate executives have been fired for opinions written three decades ago that now fall outside the lines of acceptable public discourse.

    In classrooms, newsrooms and boardrooms across the country, you can almost hear the silence as people internally check what they say in the knowledge that if they cross the line they’ll be publicly denounced and very likely terminated.

    The darkness has indeed claimed democracy.

    But wait. It’s not Mr. Trump who’s silenced them. Can you name a single person in the media who has suffered materially for saying hostile things about the president in the past four years? In fact, there’s no surer way to advance your career in entertainment, news, sports, literature and even business circles than to issue some well-rehearsed bromide on social media about the monster in the White House.

    Yes, the president characteristically reaches for the extreme when he calls journalists “the enemy of the people.” But we’ve seen where the real threat to freedom lies: a climate of ideological intolerance in our nation’s cultural institutions that suffocates any attempt to question it.

    Last week a few dozen writers of a liberal persuasion gained some attention when they finally mustered the nerve to take a position against “cancel culture.” They were among some 150 signatories of “A Letter on Justice and Open Debate,” published by Harper’s magazine.

    It was nice to welcome these belated converts to the cause of free speech, though as others have noted only a handful of them spoke up when the mob was attempting to cancel conservative thinkers. Now that the vigilantes of ideological purity have come for them or their friends, the soft liberals have rediscovered the inviolable virtue of free speech.

    But even this late, limp, self-serving effort at defending (some) free speech was met with predictable vehemence from the intendants of the new authority.

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whose career hasn’t exactly been crushed under the wheels of Trumpian repression, tweeted: “Odds are you’re not actually cancelled, you’re just being challenged, held accountable, or unliked.” Tell that to the people who’ve lost their jobs in the past few weeks alone.

    Others say: We’ve always accepted some limits on speech. The new rules just expand some of the exceptions all agree are needed.

    But listen carefully to the words used by the speech police. When New York Times reporters mobilized to get an editor fired, they claimed the offending op-ed he published put their lives “in danger.”

    This was no mere difference of opinion. The offending speech was supposedly a direct physical threat to those offended. Echoing the language used on campus over many years, the idea is that the speech they oppose isn’t simply flawed, it constitutes violence. This language is carefully chosen to stifle all criticism.

    You don’t argue with people whose speech would harm you physically. You don’t tell them to express their views somewhere else. You have to shut them up.

    The modern argot of the left goes way beyond the current heated issue of race. If you’re pro-life, you’re a threat to women’s health. If you favor reducing the size of government, you’re taking away vital services for people and therefore, actually, killing them.

    Remember, all this is happening when Republicans—notionally at least—control 1½ of the federal government’s political branches. Imagine what happens when Democrats get control. Will they resist demands from the canceling allies in their ranks to carry these new rules from campus and corporation to their logical endpoint, legislation and executive authority? Will democracy, real democracy, where people can still find a place to express dissent, survive the darkness that will fall then?

    NBA Panics, Backtracks After Store Sales Rep. Tells Reporter He Can’t Buy a “Free Hong Kong” Jersey, But He CAN Buy a “Kill Cops” Jersey (AUDIO)

    Daily Caller sports reporter David Hookstead on Monday spoke to a sales rep at the NBA store who told him he could not buy a “Free Hong Kong” jersey, but he CAN buy a “Kill Cops” jersey.
    The NBA store offers custom jerseys where fans can choose a name with a 12-character limit.
    David Hookstead contacted the NBA store after realizing he was able to type “KillCops” in the custom text, but unable to choose “FreeHongKong.”

    The NBA store sales rep. clearly confirmed to the reporter that he CAN buy a “Kill Cops” jersey, but he cannot buy a “free Hong Kong” jersey.

    But every country in history that has experienced bank runs has had laws that “guarantee” that “it can’t happen here”.

    True, Dirk.
    But the regulation changes mean that the “stakeholders” – that is, the people actually withdrawing their money from the bank – can now be held legally liable for the losses incurred by the bank as a result. Sort of makes the whole exercise a bit pointless.

    Now, 15 years later, some fuckwit “remembers” seeing something, but didn’t “remember” it enough to come forward in 2005.
    Consider this …
    Fraser is a middle-aged loser with no money, no prospects, no work ethic and expensive tastes.
    He needs a Hollywood “money-shot” payday.
    Dupas was going to be it, but it got a bit awkward when he was the only witness and Dupas’s lawyer was going to put him on the rotisserie.

    This appears to be the very definition of a dysfunctional family.

    Kellyanne Conway’s teenage daughter says her parents are kicking her offline after she began playfully trolling them and sharing her liberal opinions on TikTok and Twitter.

    In what she called “my last tweet” on Monday night, 15-year-old Claudia wrote: “My parents are forcing me to delete social media… apparently, i don’t have a platform! it’s fake!”

    “Love you all so much. keep fighting,” she added to her nearly 118,000 followers.

    When one person expressed their outrage in the comments, Claudia responded with “#saveclaudiaconway.”

    The apparent social media ban came about a week after the teen trolled her parents — livestreaming a confrontation with her mother, a counselor to President Trump, on TikTok and telling her father, conservative Trump critic George Conway, on Twitter that she was “sorry [his] marriage failed.”

    On Friday, Claudia — who has posted a wave of anti-Trump and pro-Black Lives Matter content on her TikTok — wrote in a tweet that: “My parents, particularly my mother, are trying to silence me by getting me to delete my social media. haha.”

There are three broad powerbases: older people, middle age white collar workers, and working class families in the outer suburbs and hinterland.

    At the very beginning I said this madness is allowed to be carried out only because it’s supported by two political pillars: baby boomers terror of now suddenly being the old people in society – their lifetime nightmare realised – this supported the first moment, and now it’s sustained by a mixture of that and middle class white people’s joyous love of working from home instead of having to butan death march into bugman hives in the CBD each day.

    Dirk,
    Tere’s a new thread so this will be my last reply on this subject here.
    If you want to continue, carry it over to the new thread.

    Re your actual query, you are confusing two issues I mentioned.
    First, only somebody with money actually deposited at a bank, can partake in a run on the bank. Or simply withdraw money for some purpose.
    ALL depositors at the bank are now stakeholders and legally liable for any losses incurred by the bank. So the bank doesn’t give a flying fvck as to your particular reasons for attempting to withdraw the money – if they end up making a loss they can go you to make it good.

    Second, and separate, the Cash Restrictions Bill will allow banks to charge you a transaction fee when money is deposited (for instance, your pay), charge you a transaction fee each time you withdraw or spend some – and prevent you from withdrawing the lot and paying for everything by cash, and finally, let them charge you interest on your deposits, while interest rates are low, if they so wish.

    Midget beta on TheirABC’s Just In.

    The letters suggest the decision to sack Mr Whitlam was made by Sir John, and seemingly him alone.

    The true believers haven’t completely given up yet.

    The evidence given was that Falconio was shot – “loud bang” – at the rear of the Kombi,

    One of the forensics thought it significant that no blood spatter was identified. Another reason to doubt the Lees version of what happened.

    A big hint from the Vic CMO that the current outbreak may have entirely come from the hotel quarantine stuff up.

    Time to get very angry.

    Jesus Christ man.
    BLM defending shooting babies.
    They’re black Nazis, basically.

    The fissure in American society appears to growing in that direction, LS.
    How disadvantageous for them – we’ll be able to play Whack a Mole with moles who have self identified as Brownshirt thugs.

    Had a great laugh this morning, Cats; inside my PO box I found a personally-addressed copy of the Green Left Weekly!

    I’d be curious about how they got your address – seems dodgy somehow.
    Ask the newspaper how they got it.

    Parting comment: “It doesn’t matter who or how, one of your blokes in that seat is better than one of theirs – ffs don’t you want to win?”

    They want to be big fish in a small pond – being little fish in a big pond is too dangerous for their fragile egos.

    There has never been a book called Camp of the saints.

    Now Winston, how many fingers am I holding up?

    Oooh! Oooh! I know this one! Pick me! Pick me!
    The answer is … 42!
