    All lives matter.
    And that includes all the Nig gers and the slopes and the wo ps , the white honkies, the sand monkeys, the bolts, the bloody cowboys and itchy bums, coooooooooooons and spicks, Micks and Joooooooos and booooongs.
    Even Tasmanians.
    A bit uncomfortable reading the first slang name?
    How uncomfortable are you that just stating all lives matter got a young mum shot through the head?
    She never used any terms used above.
    She just said all lives matter.
    Would it be OK to shoot her if she used the term Nig ger?
    Or Coooooon?
    Does that justify murder?
    Would that be allowed?
    How sensitive to words can you be to justify murder?
    But the lives that see the above as so terrible as to need to confront only words, (not deeds) with violence and murder, not better words, do not matter.

    Qantas employee just told friend that everyone at Qantas has been offered a package . Friend does not know if he was flight crew or cabin crew but flew international route . As you can imagine he was extremely angry and upset as he is 56 does not think he will get another job so I am thinking flight crew.
    Second Just had text from my cardiologist cancelling my appointment as he had Covid 19 . As I am friendly with him he told me that he had caught it from an asymptomatic patient 3 weeks ago and had still not got a clear swab . Fortunately not too bad a case . Didn’t ask if hospital patient or rooms patient.

    Are you racist? And, if so, how would I know?
    I used to think that a good gauge may be whether you call me a “Paki”, or assault me because of my skin colour, or deny me a job after seeing my name. But, no, these are just overt expressions of racism. Even if you show no hostility, or seek to discriminate, you’re probably still racist. You just don’t know it. Especially if you’re white. And if you protest about being labelled a racist, you are merely revealing what the US academic and diversity trainer Robin DiAngelo describes in the title of her bestselling book as your “white fragility”.

    Cats and horses.

    The most ancient evidence of horsemanship in the bronze age (13 Jul)

    About 3,500 years ago, people of the Andronovo culture lived on this territory. A distinctive feature of the culture of that period was the development of horse breeding. The animals were used not only for food but also for harnessing to chariots and riding.

    This is confirmed by the remains of horses that were discovered in the burial ground Novoilinovsky-2. Scientists drew attention to the approximate age of the buried animals: The stallion was about 20 years old, and the mare was about 18. For the beef cattle, their lifespan was too long. There were details of ancient bridles near the horses. Thus, scientists established a new hypothesis: animals were sacrificially buried with the person whom they accompanied during their lifetime.

    5,000 years of history of domestic cats in Central Europe (13 Jul)

    In archaeological excavation sites in Anatolia, Syria as well as Israel, a variety of stone figurines representing those cats has been found. Apparently, cats stayed in the proximity of the first farmers and, with high probability, the Neolithic Age is when the first human-cat interrelations were initiated.

    Cats and cat ladies ever since the Stone Age.

  24. yarpos

    I’d love to know where these nirvanas of non racism are. After working a fair bit around Asia and in more anglo centric countries it seems to me that its a pretty common human trait. I would consider myself a racist, there are certain nationalities I just wont have anything to do with, based on bitter experience. There are others that have me on guard initially until I can suss them out as individuals. I like to expect the best of people and that often works buts its totally naive , sometimes to the point of being dangerous, to ignore your hard won experience.

    Given that just about every country on earth has been playing with the corona (common cold) virus as a possible biological warfare agent since 1955, I’d imagine WHO have enough variants stored to create as many waves as required to convince even the most recalcitrant state that lobalism is the future and the Chinese Belt and Road is to be shunned.

    I see that the Hotels in NSW are being shut down basically again.
    This is the sort of Corrupt bullshit that is happening all the time.

    This prick at AHA NSW, John Green, is talking as if he represents pub owners and the media question him like he’s been in hospitality all his life and just wants to do the right thing..

    Remember how I said government sets up it’s own bureaucrats as false representatives of industries those bureaucrats know nothing about and who the government then speaks to, and the media ,so as get get the answers they know they are after?

    Again, look at John Green’s history on Linked in.
    Basically an ex cop all his life with a chip on his shoulder in dealing with drunks and using the AHA to harass pubs.
    Went straight from cop to being in charge of the AHA NSW!!!!

    Mrs Qwinn; in Professor Hocking’s own words:

    The Palace letters are every bit the bombshell they promised to be

    When the Queen wrote to Sir John saying: “He’s a fkn commie, innee, that Whitman? They’re all the fkn same: why doncha just geddit done and fkn sack the old count”

    …the Queen breached the central tenet of a constitutional monarchy, that the Monarch is politically neutral and must play no role in political matters. The damage this has done to the Queen, to Kerr, and the monarchy is incalculable.

    Remember Remo Nogarotto? Master Builders’ Assn. I used to think he was a builder. Na. An economist.

  48. MemoryFault

    Covid is a gift from god for these wowsers and the pub hating organisations are powerful and Australia wide.

    Yes, strange isn’t it, that they are all left wing, commie socialist bastards.
    I’d have thought many such people were more the ultra-right wing, Bible thumping, Hellfire and damnation, authoritarian types, such as you might find in Pentecostal churches such as Hillsong and the AOG.

    Like ScoMo.

  49. miltonf

    In 1983 Nogarotto was an unsuccessful Australian Labor Party (ALP) candidate for the Smithfield ward of the Fairfield Council.

    After graduating from university he worked in industrial relations before focusing on policy. In 1985 he was appointed chief executive office of the New South Wales Housing Industry Association at the age of 25, a role he would hold for 13 years.

    When Bronwyn Bishop switched from the Senate to the House of Representatives in 1994, Nogarotto was suggested as a Liberal Party replacement by former New South Wales premier Nick Greiner. The Sydney Morning Herald suggested that his Labor Party background may have been an impediment to gaining preselection.

    In 1997, Nogarotto joined Boral Group as a general manager for business development.
    Nogarotto replaced Tony Nutt as New South Wales state director of the Liberal Party in January 1998.

    In the wake of the Liberal Party loss in the 1999 New South Wales state election, senior Liberal figures such as Jeff Kennett called for Nogarotto’s sacking. Former leader Peter Collins described the campaign as “the most incompetent election campaign that the Liberal Party has run in living memory” and suggested Nogarotto should take responsibility. Nogarotto ultimately resigned in January 2000.

    They usually are socialists because they have no concept of personal responsibility.
    Especially in the NT where the black fella issues requires complete paternalism and outrageous regulation.
    It’s always “alcohol fueled ” violence, excusing the individual, punishing the entire population with rules and regulations giving them the power over an industry, just as socialists crave.

    Ok how does this work?

    Dirk, YOU are now liable for your bank’s losses. How much you have on deposit, and how much you spend/withdraw, is completely irrelevant.

    I don’t see how this would stop a bank run.

    Try consulting a dictionary for the meaning of the word “separate” in the following phrase –
    “Second, and separate

    (Hint: The comment about bank runs has SFA to do with the comment on the effects of the Cash Restrictions Bill).

    There is something very demonic going on in this country. Our present struggles have nothing to do with pandemics or with race. They are much deeper spiritual battles. I intend to be right in the middle of those battles fighting for truth until the Lord calls me home. There will be no time for real retirement. The times are just too important and there is much too much at stake to remain hidden on the sidelines.

  65. Old School Conservative

    ALL depositors at the bank are now stakeholders and legally liable for any losses incurred by the bank.

    Is stakeholder the correct term here? I thought it meant anyone with an interest in the successful operations of the bank.
    For example the landlord of a suburban bank branch needs them to continue with profitable operations, hence they are a stakeholder.
    I understand that shareholders who haven’t paid for all of their shareholding are liable for the balance in case of company collapse, but stakeholders to me is too wide a term.
    Has there been recent legislation that changes those assumptions?

    I think that there is a rich vein of upper middle class intellectual snobs who despise the lower middle class and working class and all of their preferred entertainment forms.

    Not just pubs, but fishing, hunting (or even target shooting), backyard BBQs, country music, four wheel driving, pokies, greyhounds, horse racing except the Spring Carnival, and much more.

    Then there are the rabid “intellectual” atheists who despise all religions except one.

    Careful there, mate. Throwaway quips like that risk dangerous outbreaks of Pots calling Kettles B$%^k, and that’s a cancellable offense these days. 🤪

    Then again, most kettles I see on the shelves or on the boil these days are white or silver, and the vast majority of Kettles-on-wheels I’ve handled (In Australia at least) were Green.

    The only not-green ones I’ve handled were in South Africa, and my goodness did they go!

    Unfortunately, I’ve found that conservatives are not good joiners. Maybe we need a billionaire manipulator, the way Soros funds the extreme left. Twiggy or Gina, perhaps? Could they – would they – fund a Catallaction Club?

    Don’t bring a shotgun to a coffee fight

    Police are appealing for assistance from the public to identify two people after an attempted armed robbery in Sydney’s south west.
    About 11pm Wednesday 8 July 2020, the pair entered a grocery store on Cumberland Road, Auburn and threatened the owner with a shot gun.
    After they demanded cash, the owner and two shoppers reportedly threw hot coffee at the pair causing them to flee empty handed.
    Officers attached to Auburn Police Area Command attended the store and commenced inquiries.
    No one was injured in incident.

    Obvious question, what type of coffee was used in self-defence? a strong black? bet it wasn’t a soy latte. Will the owner and two shoppers be investigated by police for using a weapon to defend themselves?

    Fox News host calls ‘Squad’ member ‘one of the country’s most privileged revolutionaries’

    “Here’s something you probably didn’t know,” Carlson said. “Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the voice of the street, actually grew up in an idyllic town 45 miles north of New York City. It’s called Yorktown Heights. You never know it from listening to her recent race-baiting but the population of Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’ home is over 90 percent white.

    “It’s not Queens,” Carlson went on. “It’s a nice place. Yorktown Heights is so affluent and so peaceful, in fact, it doesn’t need its own police department. Instead, it relies on the 59-man force that protects the larger town [Yorktown] around it. This is the hood that spawned Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, one of the country’s most privileged revolutionaries.

    A magistrate would consider that more than proportionate to the threat level presented. Particularly as the customers were acting while in reasonable fear for their lives.

    (Now, had they produced their own weapons, and/or fixed bayonets we’d have a problem).

    At Coles today (in NSW) we are back to packing our own groceries again, for some reason. Mind you, there is zero evidence of Covid19 transmission through the packing of groceries, but hey, it’s all part of the weird Kabuki that State Governments are now engaged in. Or perhaps magical thinking. Whatever it is, it has f-all to do with science.

    What a pit they have dug themselves into. If they admit that catching the virus is (on current figures) less dangerous than the average year’s flu, people will demand to know why they have ruined the economy for nothing. If they back off and say that it should run its natural course, they will be accused of murdering innocents.

    I really feel for all those small and medium sized business owners and employees who are looking into the void. Years of work and sacrifice, gone, because the political class has never seen a crisis that they don’t want to exploit for electoral purposes. And the media have ramped up fear to the max for circulation purposes.

    As has been noted by US commenters, media coverage has shifted from death rates to infection rates, because death rates no longer fit the hysterical narrative. Not that they ever did in Australia, but that didn’t deter the professional panic merchants.

    TheirABC, which is always quoting ‘experts’ (often un-named) ran a story this morning suggesting that some ‘experts’ believe that we can eliminate the virus entirely from this country, and should huddle in our homes until we do. This is the kind of stupidity that only academics are capable of, and only TheirABC would do anything but point and laugh at the proponents.

    While I’m here, Sir John Kerr may have been a pisspot, but he was far from stupid. The correspondence released today demonstrates not only that the Leftie conspiracy theories were wide of the mark, but that he handled the whole thing with an admirable mix of cunning and propriety, duly noted by The Palace.

  97. Camp of the Saints has a waiting list on internet archive.

    Yeah, I saw that but it was this afternoon (probably replay). Anyway, I couldn’t watch so left the room. Later, I came back in and Malcolm Turdball is on asking the rhetorical question as to “why, we are consulting with another country about our Prime Minister and our local political situation”. He was, of course, referring to Sir John Kerr’s letters to the Queen.

    FFS, nobody under the age of 60 would have any significant recollection of the events; our millions of immigrants in that period wouldn’t know what he was talking about and in any case it was the GG informing the Monarch of a looming constitutional issue – which he was required to do.

    And for expert commentary, the ABC seek out the views of a self-entitled dimwit looser who has a gigantic chip on his shoulder and was the Chair of the Republican Movement for almost a decade.

    Look who wanted to be spared. An angel.

    A divided Supreme Court cleared the way for the first federal executions since 2003, issuing orders shortly after 2 a.m. Tuesday rejecting inmate claims that using pentobarbital for lethal injections would be unconstitutional.

    In an unsigned opinion, the court’s five-member conservative majority sought to end the fusillade of litigation four condemned men and their allies filed since Attorney General William Barr announced plans a year ago to reactivate the federal death chamber in Terre Haute, Indiana.

    The executions of the men convicted of murder had been set to begin Monday at 4 p.m., starting with Daniel Lewis Lee, for the 1996 killings of an Arkansas gun dealer, his wife and her 8-year-old daughter.

    But Monday morning, U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan of the District of Columbia blocked the government from proceeding so that the inmates could present arguments that pentobarbital, the drug chosen for lethal injection, could cause “extreme pain and needless suffering during their executions.”

    What the show conveniently glossed over was the evidence against Murdoch, but trying to imply his innocence by sticking it to Lees.

    Harvard’s prestige really has gone downhill this month. First it removed the SAT entrance threshold because magic people couldn’t beat hard working Asians. Then it was outed as being built on slavery.
    And now:

    This parrot beat 21 Harvard students in a classic memory game (14 Jul)

    African grey parrots (Psittacus erithacus) can live more than 50 years, memorize dozens of words in English and, if given the chance, outsmart a flock of Harvard students in a classic Shell Game.

    Well, one grey parrot can, anyway. His name is Griffin, and he is the subject of a recent study published May 6 in the journal Scientific Reports. Researchers challenged Griffin to a working memory task where he had to locate a colorful pom-pom hidden under a plastic cup after it was shuffled around a table several times (aka, the Shell Game). Meanwhile, 21 Harvard students were given the same task — and Griffin matched or outperformed them in 12 of 14 trials.

    Not only did Griffin beat Harvard students but he’s an African American parrot. How woke is that?

    The media traitors & our political traitors were busting & pushing for a second wave of kung flu, they now seem to have it, but I think a lot of the peasantry are waking up to this scamdemic.
    I wonder if they dare push for a third wave of this bullshit.
    I bet they do.

    In many respects they are locked into their own deceit. They can’t wind back now. The ‘charade’ must continue otherwise it undermines the first response. That there have been very large over-reactions, (based on faulty assumptions) and poor execution in other aspects is largely overlooked and in any case, the MSM is onside with no critical examination.

    Only a few days ago, one of our Cats (Cardimona 9/7) posted a story where a radio show host ADMITTED, in writing, that: Our company has provided very strict guidelines about the pandemic and to ensure that anything we broadcast is in accordance with the official scientific and medical research/data.

    Unfortunately, many of the issues you raise are clearly outside this directive….

    It was acknowledgment that only the approved ‘party’ line is acceptable. No dissent or questioning will be entertained.

    I think that ‘the authorities’ have dug themselves a hole and are very reluctant to try and reverse their way out of it. In other words, they keep digging.

    John and Martin have made it quite clear that bail-ins of depositor’s money, and depositor’s funds used in the case of legal calls being made on bank funds (as in a bank run), are two separate, albeit related issues.

    Neither of which have anything to do with the Cash Restrictions Bill [Currency (Restrictions on the Use of Cash) Bill 2019]. This Bill is all about the grubbymint limiting your right to spend your money, that you have earned legally and paid taxes on, however, wherever and whenever you see fit.

    The fact that it also favours the banks immensely is mere coincidence.
    You know, just like every other act of grubbymint involving banks.

    Write an actual letter, post it with tracking so there is a date of receipt, follow up with a weekly phone call. They are more likely to react to a written letter than to an email.

    They should advise you (or tell you when you ask during your regular phone call), the date it was referred to a minister’s office. Then email the minister’s office regularly, copied to Sharkie. Become a serial pest!

    As others have pointed out, the Covid19 panic has been an accelerated version of the climate scam, and so there may be a tiny silver lining. People have discovered that closing down large sections of the economy is unpleasant and causes impoverishment.

    And what a joy it has been to see the climate scaremongers wringing their hands because they were unable to achieve in 20+ years what a virus scare did in a few months. Greta who?

    Plastic bags have been re-instated for hygiene reasons. Incredibly important conferences about Da Planet have been cancelled. Donations have dwindled, as has media coverage. They have been bumped down the totem pole like women and homosexuals in the era of transgenderism.

    As the fog lifts, jobs are going to be more important than the whinings of greenies if politicians want to save their miserable skins. No prizes for guessing how that will play out.

    And it illustrates the apocryphal saying that you should always back self interest first – at least you know it’s trying. Climate change is abstract and vague – nobody is individually at risk. But, faced with a possible personal risk, all bets are off. Suddenly, we have brawls in the supermarket over toilet paper. Nobody ever brawled in the supermarket over ‘climate change.’

    We are not out of the woods yet, by a long shot. In particular, the attempts to internationalise race relations are still very pernicious and damaging. But I do think that a lot of people who imagined that Black Lives Matter was about ‘the summer of love’, or those who trusted the gubbmint to lead us through the latest ‘crisis’ have had the scales removed from their eyes.

  141. Neither of which have anything to do with the Cash Restrictions Bill [Currency (Restrictions on the Use of Cash) Bill 2019]. This Bill is all about the grubbymint limiting your right to spend your money, that you have earned legally and paid taxes on, however, wherever and whenever you see fit.

    I for one would believe every single thing that was in a TV series designed to make money for its creator, who happens to be a career criminal lawyer turned criminal, and produced by a 21 year old arts graduate in skinny jeans.

    And which series was spread over multiple parts and includes selective portions of admissible evidence, none of Murdoch’s uncharged acts, a lot of statement from people who were literally on the other side of the world at the time and also uses prepositioned lighting and music to generate increased traffic on the Letters to the Editor page of Women’s Weekly.

    Taskforce Regulus, the team ofTenitorian police eventually formed to investigate Lees’
    tale, was a success. But was its use of DNA identification optimal? The Falconio case
    differs from many other high profile DNA-based successes in that DNA databases played no role in its outcome. So, the case is an opportunity to consider how effective individualised DNA sampling was in a major police inquiry involving a large and disparate population of possible offenders. Of interest is whose DNA was and wasn’t obtained, why that was the case and whether a different approach should be used in the future.

    Was Lees’ DNA found in Murdoch’s vehicle?

  174. Knuckle Dragger

    ‘Murdoch probably restrained Lees.’

    I feel this must be the truth, especially if Murdoch was dressed as an evil clown at the time.

    Interviewee – “No” (a less certain “no” pinched from elsewhere in the interview).
    The transcript is exactly the same, but even adding a delay between a question and a denial creates the impression of guilt.

    Apparently, he ruled the roost in prison.

    Bevan Spencer von Einem reputedly ruled the roost in Yatala prison so the Corrections Dept. moved him to G block (essentially isolation and no visitors except by special appointment) then around to different prisons so as to make it harder to establish his ‘seniority’. Apparently he’s been at Pt Augusta for the last decade but is an old man now.

    Re Dame Angela Lansbury – an admirable woman. She started out as a hoofer, was probably kept fit by her dancing, had a great figure well into her 50s. Got into acting, was never great but kept on keeping on till her very successful TV series ‘Murder, She Wrote.’ She’s now in her nineties, seven decades in showbiz is pretty good.

    She is apparently a distant cousin of Turnbuckle’s mother, Coral Lansbury. A distant cousin is about as distant as makes no matter.

    Have we reached peak cuck?

    The GOP’s future looks more like Tucker Carlson than Larry Hogan

    Hogan is the anti-Trump. The governor of Maryland supports action to address global warming and gun control. He endorses Roe v. Wade. He is a fiscal conservative. He backed the impeachment inquiry into Trump and blasted the process as “a sham and a joke” because House Republicans were not allowed to call witnesses and Senate Republicans refused to do so.

    I am thoroughly disenchanted with the current state of the GOP. As far as I am concerned, all of Trump’s enablers need to be defeated — and that includes the entire Republican caucus in the House and Senate save for Sen. Mitt Romney (Utah). Hogan is one of the few potential candidates who could convince me to cast a ballot for a Republican again, because he is one of the few elected Republicans who has been untainted by Trump’s
