“I have unfettered legal power”

“I’m in charge of spectrum auctions and if I say to you everyone in this room, ‘if you want to bid next week in our spectrum auction you better wear red underpants on your head’, you’ll be wearing them on your head,” he said. “I have unfettered legal power.”

The quote is from Stephen Conroy and may be found here: Conroy plays down ‘red underpants’ comments. They love the power, these totalitarians. Daniel Andrews has never shown himself as anything other than stoopid. But he likes the power to tell everybody else what to do. He has screwed up every single thing he has done since becoming Premier, and especially the lockdown, but he gets to give the orders. He has even sold out Victoria to the Communist Party of China to cover his fantastically large deficit expenditures. Disgusting.

Meanwhile: Coronavirus: Levels of herd immunity in UK may already be high enough to prevent second wave, study suggests.

“The outbreaks look similar at the beginning. But in the heterogeneous population, individuals are not infected at random.

“The highly susceptible people are more likely to get infected first. As a result, the average susceptibility gets lower and lower over time.”

She added: “We just keep running the models, and it keeps coming back at less than 20 percent. It’s very striking.”

I only wish there was herd immunity against voting for socialists. There is, of course, but only after the voting is over plus around half a dozen years. And even then, it’s always only temporary.

    Chairman Dan would only be doing what United Voice and the CFMMEU told him to do.

    Meanwhile: Coronavirus: Levels of herd immunity in UK may already be high enough to prevent second wave, study suggests.

    Seems to be supported by this story yesterday:

    Coronavirus: New data shows R-rate at 1 EVERYWHERE but ONE area – is your town affected? (18 Jul)

    Across the UK the R-rate is recorded as being between 0.7 and 0.9, however in England could be significantly higher.

    Government data shows that in England, the R-rate could be as high as 1.0 in every region apart from in the North East and Yorkshire.

    In the North East and Yorkshire the R-rate has stayed steady at 0.9.

    Less than one and the epidemic fizzles. We can hope it remains like this or goes even lower.

    Chairman Dan would only be doing what Winnie the Pooh told him to do. Oh, except right now I think WtP is in hiding, as with the rest of the politbureau. Poor Dan must be running round in circles wondering what comes next.

  4. Yet in my township there are still plenty of f*cktards that keep voting Labor/Greens and see them as saviours no matter what.

    Mind you, the state’s Liberal Party is pretty much a bunch of f*ckards anyway. My local Nationals member tries his best, but is up against a useless bunch of children called the opposition.

    voting against socialists.

    But the socialists more and more after each democratic vote loss, they reject losing, they don’t accept democracy when they lose.

    Gone is the notion of accepting a loss.

  6. Professor Fred Lenin

    Just wait till the socialists get universal postal voting,there will be one party states everywhere in the West. The US decromats are hot for it ,can you imagine what the BLM communists crew would do with that . UK labour woukd love it and our local communist tossers are thinking of it .
    Not suggesting they might flood the electoral people with forgeries or huge boxes of negative votes would end up at the tip in flames .( for negative I mean anti left votes )
    Results of socialists winning 109.7 of the vote will not be uncommon .
    It will still be a democracy wont it .the left cant take that away ,can they.?

    Contrary to your carefully argued and researched position there is no linkage between pandemic viruses and voting. We know this because people voted for Trump are having an appalling health experience while those who didn’t get a choice in Vietnam are opening their borders to foreign travel.
    Personally I think nitwits like Kates are undermining our society with childish social media promotions that are totally divorced from the clinical risk. Like mist child commos he remains committed to selfish propaganda. Not to mention Dear Leader Donald.

    Chairman Dan wears the same black North Face jacket, I don’t think I’ve seen him in anything else, ,he knows something , it’s going to be a long cold winter in Danistan.

  12. Steve

    And this is the point I have made about Victoriastan and what appears to be its communist leadership.

    In Victoriastan:

    – police and military on the streets – like China
    – people locked down – like china
    – freedom of travel internally tightly controlled – like china
    – parliament suspended with no democratic process currently ( rule by effectively unaccountable politburo ) – like china
    – political protests that support The Party are allowed but no others – like china
    – belt and road initiative supported – cozy up to china
    – people slugged with punitive fines exercising basic freedoms – like china

    Yep…no politics in the Victoriastan Soviet at all….

    How to break Commissar Comrades power – a cheap drug that nukes Covid.

    No covid ==>> no lockdowns ==>> no power.

    Boo Hoo, Dangerous Dan…bye bye and take your little red book with you.

    This is encouraging – finding the molecular “switch” that makes covid dangerous and treatable by another new drug

    https://www.timesofisrael.com/existing-drug-may-downgrade-covid-threat-to-common-cold-level-jerusalem-study/

    “An existing medicine can “downgrade” the danger-level of coronavirus to that of a common cold, a Jerusalem researcher is claiming, after testing it on infected human tissue.

    “Prof. Yaakov Nahmias says that his research shows that the novel coronavirus is so vicious because it causes lipids to be deposited in the lungs, and that there is a solution to undo the damage: a widely-used anti cholesterol drug called fenofibrate.

    Paper https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3650499

    ““If our findings are borne out by clinical studies, this course of treatment could potentially downgrade COVID-19’s severity into nothing worse than a common cold,” Nahmias said.

    “Unlike remdesivir, which is being lauded for its effect on coronavirus patients, fenofibrate, sometimes sold under the brand name Tricor, is already accredited by America’s Food and Drug Administration and is in plentiful supply. Remdesivir is in short supply and is also still pending full approval by regulators like the FDA.

  14. Tony

    Still to early to say if there will be herd immunity. Multiple papers and pre prints that suggest not everyone gets antibodies. For those that do, they decline to essentially nothing in 3 to 4 months.

    T cell responses seem strong and long lasting to SARS1… but the SARS2 virus is known to kill T cells. hard to know right now if T cells are sufficient to stop disease a 2nd time and if they prevent viral shedding he 2nd time around.

    Contrary to your carefully argued and researched position there is no linkage between pandemic viruses and voting.

    There’s a concept called “analogy”. You might want to look it up on the internet some time.

    We know this because people voted for Trump are having an appalling health experience

    No they aren’t.

    while those who didn’t get a choice in Vietnam are opening their borders to foreign travel

    So what?

    Personally I think

    Try “Personally I feel…”. More accurate.

    nitwits like Kates are undermining our society with childish social media promotions that are totally divorced from the clinical risk.

    If you’ve got any expertise about “clinical risk” that you think is inconsistent with what Steve posts, feel free to expound it.

    Like mist child commos he remains committed to selfish propaganda. Not to mention Dear Leader Donald.

    “Selfish”? What do you think Steve stands to gain personally from expressing his opinions about the Hunchback of Spring Street?
    And mindless NPC TDS sufferers are a dime a dozen on this blog, so your hilarious “Dear Leader Donald” half-witticism may not have the shock factor you may have expected it to.

    “Daniel Andrews has never shown himself as anything other than stoopid. .. he likes the power … He has screwed up every single thing he has done since becoming Premier… He has … sold out … to the Communist Party of China to cover his fantastically large deficit expenditures.”

    That is what Victoria voted for, twice. It’s a mystery why they are crying so about losing their businesses and their jobs and their homes – what did they think would happen?

    Victoria deserves everything it gets; people voted over and over again for more of what they are now copping from their politicians; cops choose to work for the most disgraceful policing pretence in the country; the progressive intelligentsia cannot organise enough of those rich cultural North African home invasions; magistrates amuse themselves by punishing the paying public daily; the elderly earned the right to be ignored when they ring 000, for not stopping the rot decades ago by lynching Kirner and Cain; ambulancemen deserve to be pelted with bottles by sub-hooo mans for not going on strike for a couple of months; and so on.

    It’s near thirty years since they elected a conservative government, six months after they were crying when he expected them to do something to deserve his efforts. They are a State populated by whingers, they sound like pommy shop stewards.

  19. Mustapha Bunn

    Mick ..we didn’t all vote for Dan so please refrain from hyper ventilating about it. And you need to get over your problem with Poms while you’re at it.

  20. Mick Gold Coast QLD

    From Mustapha Bunn at 10:46 pm:

    “Mick ..we didn’t all vote for Dan so please refrain from hyper ventilating about it. And you need to get over your problem with Poms while you’re at it.”

    Not enough of you “didn’t all vote for Dan”, or John or Steve or Joan or John, and not enough of you did anything to remind Denis or Ted who they were expected to represent. Were you all fooled by Kroger’s scowl, believing it was going to scare the horrid fellows away?

    “problem with Poms” amused me. My lot is from Cork. I grew up hearing about the problem the Poms had with us.

    “Hyperventilating” is one word.

    Victoria has set the standard and it will soon come to the rest of Australia.

    The Muzzle Is a Badge of Subservience and Submission
    “Anyone who (voluntarily) dons it publicly is agreeing to the Government’s crazy assessment of the level of danger”

    Now the State forces us to wear a soggy cloth muzzle, a face-nappy that turns its wearer from a normal human into a mumbling, mouthless submissive.

    Is there no humiliation or subjugation by the State that Australia’s “free” citizen’s will not meekly accept?

  25. Old School Conservative

    Is the Liberty quote entirely coincidental or deliberately inserted as I watched the video:

    The only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of a civilized community, against his will, is to prevent harm to others. His own good, either physical or moral, is not sufficient warrant.

  26. John Bayley

    If Dan could actually read, he should take notice of these numerous, referenced RCT (randomised clinical trials), which all, without exception, conclude that masks, as worn by the general public, do NOT protect against respiratory diseases, including the Chinese flu.

    But then again, as has been stated by multiple people by now:

    “It’s not about safety. It’s all about compliance.”

    Welcome to our very own version of the Soviet Union.

  27. Iampeter

    I only wish there was herd immunity against voting for socialists.

    I do so love reading lines like this from Trump supporters. If only there was herd immunity against being oblivious socialists.

    Pepper spray, choke hold, for not wearing a mask in Canada. They’re flattening the curve of our civil liberties.

    When are you going to show footage of the families being dragged away to literal camps for failing to show the proper papers?
    Where was the concern for “flattening the curve of our civil liberties” when you support a nationalist regulating trade and immigration?

    Today’s conservatives really have no idea what’s going on or what they support. It’s all just mindless talking point regurgitation.

    Moron can’t even read his own talking points properly. No wonder they were misreported.

    It was supposed to be ‘foetid legal power’.

    Ah, I remember him sitting in parliament crying at the memory of milk delivered to his home which had been tainted by radiation – an event that had actually taken place years before he was born.

    Hollywood for ugly people.

    Wimpeter is a troll. Engage at your peril.

    In the meantime, let’s all argue with the overt abuses of power by the Neo-Bolsheviks by making subtle legal distinctions and witty retorts.

    Yeah! That’ll work!

  34. Tim Neilson

    Poor old self-beclowner.

    They’re not “dragged” to “literal camps” [would it be better if they were dragged to metaphorical camps?] for not showing the proper papers.
    They’re detained because they’ve broken the laws of the USA.

    Dirk is right – you’re totally incoherent on “rights”. I’ve already told you the solution to your bleating about immigration restrictions – the United States just has to change its name to “the USA Club”, announce that its territory is the private property of the club’s members, and have the club committee and staff enforce those property rights the same way that any individuals jointly holding land through an artificial “legal person” are able to do.

    Hi Tony. Didn’t know that SARS2 known to kill T cells. But not surprising with this pathogen.

    Do you know how long there is viral shedding with SARS2? Health workers seem to be contracting the virus worldwide in large numbers, which many just ascribe to viral overload. Would like to know more. Thanks.

    It just seems as though all your comments are gratuitous. And what’s more they don’t appear to come from any carefully laid out set of first principles reasoning anyway.

    Except it’s the exact other way around.

    Why don’t you lay out all your pertinent beliefs? That way the rest of us can spend our time throwing potshots at every inconsistency.

    Yes, none of you know anything about politics, find that none of your child-level talking points work and then you need me to provide material for you to pretend to be involved in conversations you have no business being in to begin with. It’s the classic Cat argument from ignorance. As if you not knowing what you’re talking about is an argument I need to answer, or something. Sorry, no.

    Try this instead you fool…

    “No Geranimo, No Wall, No Indian Nations At All”

    That’s not even analogous. Like most leftists that want to regulate immigration you don’t even know what the issue is you’re arguing about.

  39. Iampeter

    IAP is a self identified Hillary supporter.

    Nope. But as a Trump supporter your issue with Hillary must be that she is not big government, left wing enough, nor corrupt enough, nor prepared to grovel in front of all of America’s enemies enough.

    You guys have a lot of stuff to figure out…

    Bwahahahahahahaha … you should apply for a spot on SNL! But I suppose, we will never know about Hillary as POTUS – hopefully she will be in jail soon for her incompetence and corruption during her time as Secretary of State, but I guess the DNC still need her to fill in for demented, touchy-feely Joe Biden when he finally gets strapped into his straight jacket. I doubt the voters in the US really want to see her as their “Dear Leader”.

    Hillary should be serving a very long prison sentence for her culpability in the Benghazi attack and massacre of U.S. officials and staff alone.
