    Daily dose of Vietnam!

    I’m going to repost this from Mick GCQ last night because it’s a) it’s sensible, and b) it’s what happens when you go past initial reports of something in the paper and actually look at background and context.

    Also because the judge involved was the dissenter in the Pell job.

    ‘He painted the penis adjacent to a dead girl’s memorial just hours before 10,000 people gathered at the park for a vigil to dead Miss Dixon, to “… cause as much outrage as possible …” to protest against feminazism and vaccination (???) and because he wanted to be famous. Nolch told police: “I wanted to see if it could make the news. I wanted … just to see the dick on the screen, I just thought that’d be funny.”

    ‘In 2018 the magistrate-ess gifted the funny little funster an easy 18-month community corrections order, 200 hours of community work and a $20,000 fine to repair the damage (which he is most unlikely to have paid, I’d put the rent money on that). A County Court judge also did not send him to the slammer.

    ‘He didn’t turn up to chip weeds or sit under a tree (which is usual) for his community work half a dozen times. He went overseas several times, to the Philippines and Thailand, which he was forbidden from doing. A judgette sentenced him to five months for that. Painting on the grass was incidental by this point.

    ‘The Court of Appeal refused his bid to appeal within hours of the hearing. The court ruled a five-month term was moderate. The appeal judge threw in a couple of remarks about him being stupid.’

    Also, you don’t cause $20K damage to grass by putting paint on it, unless it’s the 18th green at Augusta. That figure was accepted by this smarmy little Scientologist’s defence at the time, so you can back it in that there was more to it than that.

    I don’t give a fuck whether the murdered lady was a raging femmo or not. The fact is this twerp went well out of his way to offend not just the purple crew cut brigade but every person attending a vigil for someone who was roped and beaten to death in a public place.

    If he was serious he would have stayed where he was when the mourners turned up and declared himself the author of his work. Then he would have achieved his aim of being on the news – not for ‘being funny’, but for being pegged to death by overall-wearing lesbians, which is sort of the same thing.

    McCrann re Dictator Dan and the HCQ ban from the Tele…

    Dan bans Trump antivirus drug
    TERRY McCRANN

    THE Andrews state Labor government has continued to ban a drug which could save lives from the virus, which President Trump has endorsed. That, to my mind, is carrying TDS — Trump Derangement Syndrome — way too far; it’s certainly carrying it all the way across the Pacific.

    What, if President Trump endorsed aspirin, would the Andrews Government move to ban that? On the basis that there’d be a rush on aspirin and if taken “inappropriately” it could cause bleeding?

    As must now be known to just about every sentient person on the planet, in the early days of the pandemic Trump said a drug that was in long and widespread use, hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), looked promising as an antiviral treatment.

    The massed TDSinflamed media in the US and around the world, including Australia, went ballistic in attacking and ridiculing both the claim and the drug — even claiming the President was encouraging people to drink bleach pool cleaner.

    Similar TDS-inflamed elements in the global medical establishment went to work to debunk any suggestion that HCQ could be of any benefit, sparked purely or impurely on the basis that the President had backed it. This culminated in an article in the prestigious Lancet magazine that purportedly debunked any benefit from using the drug and highlighted serious heart risks.

    The Victorian state government leapt in April to effectively ban or closely limit the sale of “the poison or controlled substance hydroxychloroquine”.

    Poison? Poison? Tell that to the thousands of Victorians who had been using it safely and effectively for years for a variety of other conditions.

    Well, that might actually have been a semi-valid basis to control its use — to ensure that there was supply for exactly those people who had been using it pre-virus.

    But that might have been valid, back in April.

    Not now, when the state government has extended the ban for another three months to (at least) end-October — just when the number of lives that could be saved by using it is exploding thanks to the numbing incompetence of that same Victorian Labor government.

    In April supply might have been limited and a case could have been made that its use was directed to patients where the evidence of benefit was proved.

    BUT HCQ is a generic and should be easy to obtain. That’s if you had a health system seeking to obtain it and a health system prepared to look through the frenzy of “Orange man bad” at the — what’s that word? Oh yes — evidence.

    Since the initial frenzied TDS-driven wave of “proof” that it was useless and even dangerous, the real evidence has swung sharply in the other direction.

    It has culminated in the utterly embarrassing debunking of the very Lancet study that purported to debunk HCQ.

    If you look at the study now online it has the word “withdrawn” stamped over every page. More striking is the evidence of actual HCQ use, detailed by Dr Harvey Risch, professor of epidemiology, at that notexactly ordinary Yale School of Public Health.

    As he explained on Andrew Bolt’s program on Sky News last week, HCQ had shown significant effectiveness when used early on patients with the virus. The studies purportedly debunking it had all been on patients in serious condition in ICU.

    For his efforts, it is worth disgracefully noting, the TDS-inflamed media and anti-Trump medical establishment has come down on Risch demanding he be silenced and cancelled.

    Most striking has been the evidence of Qatar where HCQ is used comprehensively as part of the multifaceted antivirus strategy. Qatar has had outstanding success in preventing cases leading on to death — precisely what HCQ is claimed to best achieve. In Qatar there have been 110,000 cases and 169 deaths. Compare that with Australia: now more deaths at 189 from just 16,000 cases.

    So, Dan, Dan, why the ban on a drug that could save lives in Australia as well as in Qatar?

    And how exactly does his ban work, anyway? The premier’s been claiming that he is not responsible for the rising toll in aged care because that’s a federal responsibility? Aren’t drugs also a federal responsibility? So why is he claiming the right to ban HCQ?

    Finally, if you want to see a really impressive health minister, Google Qatar’s Dr Hanan Mohamed al-Kuwari and watch a video of her.

    One final question: can we do a swap?

    “Nobody wants to give you support. She’s very sad. She is my daughter. She’s not an animal.”

    Fifty years ago today, British sailors declared a day of mourning. On July 31, 1970, the British Navy was handing out its last official rum ration. The spirit, made from fermented sugar, had been a tradition in the navy for more than two centuries, but the Admiralty and the British Parliament had decided the practice should come to an end.

    This is interesting because the newly enacted Enabling Act Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008 that Victoria is currently suffering running under, specifically says this:

    If a public health risk poses a serious threat, lack of full scientific certainty should not be used as a reason for postponing measures to prevent or control the public health risk.

    Australia needs Africans!

    Diana Lasu, 21, Olivia Muranga, 19, and a 21-year-old Algester woman have been charged with fraud and lying to health officials to evade quarantine after a trip to Melbourne — a declared COVID-19 hotspot.

    The ABC understands police are examining whether the trio acted on the instructions of crime syndicate handlers in a bid to evade quarantine, including by destroying phones.

    The crime syndicate is allegedly involved in the theft and transport of luxury items between capital cities.

    I don’t like the term consent of the governed.

    Not governed by the government with the consent of the people.

    We are in charge according to our constitution via a democratic Westminster system and it’s over riding rule of law.

    I would have a good chuckle at this nonsense if it wasn’t so tragic:

    Modelling from previous shutdowns suggests the curve should be flattening, especially after the introduction of mandatory masks more than a week ago.

    But after yesterday’s case numbers, experts have warned Victorians to ready themselves for the likelihood of a longer lockdown.

    “Stage 3 is not ending in three weeks. I can say that with 98 per cent probability,” University of Melbourne epidemiologist Tony Blakely said.

    Wow! He’s got “probability” to within a percentage point? He’s some “modeller”.

    Coming soon to Victoria

    An Oregon county has decided to make people of color exempt from its mandatory mask policy, citing the potential for racial profiling. The decision comes as multiple counties in Oregon have ramped up face-covering requirements to slow the spread of coronavirus.

    Lincoln County’s general directive requires everyone to wear a face-covering in any indoor public setting, or any outdoor setting where six feet of social distancing can’t be maintained. But the county wrote on its website that “People of color who have heightened concerns about racial profiling and harassment due to wearing face coverings in public” are exempt from the rule.

    This one is interesting, especially for Infi who was quite unhappy with Trump’s election date tweet:

    Trump secures the election date (30 Jul)

    And with that, the president turned delaying the election into hydroxychloroquine.

    Democrats now fervently oppose any delay or postponement. Their reaction was automatic.

    And now, none of the 50 governors and 50 secretaries of state (who run the elections) can delay or postpone their elections.

    A very perceptive and persuasive analysis. Also a lot of fun!

    2020 presidential election in “wartime”.

    The War Effort Hangs on the Ballot Box
    Hallowed Ground Magazine, Fall 2014
    The presidential election of 1864 was a remarkable example of the resilience of the democratic process in a time of extreme national uncertainty and chaos. The last presidential election to take place in wartime had been in 1812.

    Lincoln wrote a dour memorandum on August 23, 1864, asking his cabinet to accept the grim prospects for his re-election: “This morning, as for some days past, it seems exceedingly probable that this Administration will not be re-elected. Then it will be my duty to so cooperate with the President-elect as to save the Union between the election and the inauguration; as he will have secured his election on such grounds that he cannot possibly save it afterwards.”
    The political landscape shifted dramatically, however, when Gen. William T. Sherman took Atlanta in early September. This major military shift, coupled with the severe internal strife within the Democratic Party, solidified Lincoln’s chance at victory.
    As the election drew near, the Union Party mobilized the full strength of both the Republicans and the War Democrats with the slogan “Don’t change horses in the middle of a stream.” A resounding and dramatic Union victory at Cedar Creek in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley in mid-October added a final wave to Lincoln’s tide of momentum.
    The 11 Confederate states did not participate in the election, meaning only 25 states participated. The newly incorporated states of Kansas, West Virginia and Nevada participated in a national election for the first time. Elections were held in Union-occupied military districts in Louisiana and Tennessee<, but Congress did not add their electoral votes to the final count.

    USA Democrats want people to forget history.

    The Compromise of 1850

    Who won and who lost in the deal? Although each side received benefits, the north seemed to gain the most. The balance of the Senate was now with the free states, although California often voted with the south on many issues in the 1850s. The major victory for the south was the Fugitive Slave Law. In the end, the north refused to enforce it. Massachusetts even called for its nullification, stealing an argument from John C. Calhoun. Northerners claimed the law was unfair. The flagrant violation of the Fugitive Slave Law set the scene for the tempest that emerged later in the decade. But for now, Americans hoped against hope that the fragile peace would prevail.

    Fugitive Slave Act

    9/1/1850
    Passed on September 18, 1850 by Congress, The Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 was part of the Compromise of 1850. The act required that slaves be returned to their owners, even if they were in a free state. The act also made the federal government responsible for finding, returning, and trying escaped slaves.

    Personal Memoirs of U. S. Grant Volume 2 – Chapter 71 Conclusion.

    CONCLUSION.

    The cause of the great War of the Rebellion against the United Status will have to be attributed to slavery.
    For some years before the war began it was a trite saying among some politicians that “A state half slave and half free cannot exist.”
    All must become slave or all free, or the state will go down.
    I took no part myself in any such view of the case at the time, but since the war is over, reviewing the whole question, I have come to the conclusion that the saying is quite true.
    Slavery was an institution that required unusual guarantees for its security wherever it existed; and in a country like ours where the larger portion of it was free territory inhabited by an intelligent and well-to-do population, the people would naturally have but little sympathy with demands upon them for its protection.
    Hence the people of the South were dependent upon keeping control of the general government to secure the perpetuation of their favorite institution.
    They were enabled to maintain this control long after the States where slavery existed had ceased to have the controlling power, through the assistance they received from odd men here and there throughout the Northern States.
    They saw their power waning, and this led them to encroach upon the prerogatives and independence of the Northern States by enacting such laws as the Fugitive Slave Law.
    By this law every Northern man was obliged, when properly summoned, to turn out and help apprehend the runaway slave of a Southern man.
    Northern marshals became slave-catchers, and Northern courts had to contribute to the support and protection of the institution.
    This was a degradation which the North would not permit any longer than until they could get the power to expunge such laws from the statute books.
    Prior to the time of these encroachments the great majority of the people of the North had no particular quarrel with slavery, so long as they were not forced to have it themselves.
    But they were not willing to play the role of police for the South in the protection of this particular institution.
    In the early days of the country, before we had railroads, telegraphs and steamboats–in a word, rapid transit of any sort–the States were each almost a separate nationality.
    At that time the subject of slavery caused but little or no disturbance to the public mind.
    But the country grew, rapid transit was established, and trade and commerce between the States got to be so much greater than before, that the power of the National government became more felt and recognized and, therefore, had to be enlisted in the cause of this institution.
    It is probably well that we had the war when we did.
    We are better off now than we would have been without it, and have made more rapid progress than we otherwise should have made.

    There is no such thing as a complete lockdown.

    Close hospitals

    Close residential services.

    Close prisons.

    End garbage collection.

    Make all emergency services stop.

    Feel-good measures will widen the gap
    Indigenous Australians are as capable as anyone else, so why do the government’s new Closing the Gap targets ignore the most vulnerable in favour of the demands of activists?

    There are glaring problems with Ken Wyatt’s Close the Gap targets.

    If you are going to set a (probably unachievable) target to reduce Indigenous incarceration by 15 per cent, then it is absolutely scandalous that you don’t also set one for the reduction of violence against Indigenous women and children.

    If we could convince Aboriginal families to act to protect their women we would reduce the jail population by around 50 per cent, according to Australian Bureau of Statistics data on sentences for Indigenous violence, sexual assault and homicide.

    Reducing the level of violence would automatically reduce the level of incarceration.

    Once again the message to the victims is that their black lives matter a lot less than those of perpetrators.

    The government of Papua New Guinea has a worse problem then we do, with the majority of women experiencing rape or assault.

    But PNG is finally starting to take it seriously and has pledged to take action immediately to reduce violence against women.

    Perhaps it’s because they can’t use systemic racism as an excuse or insist colonisation is to blame and take responsibility away from the actual perpetrators.

    Perhaps we should ask for their advice.

    Too many well schooled post modernists who have zilch knowledge of history so why would you think they understand how federations work , even if they do read AFR.
    Parliament back on in Victoria next week , I hope the opposition have enough colgones to make Dictator Dan admit who made the decisions to putBonking Bouncers into managing hotel quarantine and when they called for help in first days , gave the job to Parks Victoria. There is no judicial inquiry to hide behind
    More deaths than Black Friday bushfires are expected and the aftermath of mental health problems, collapsed businesses and unemployment going to be long lasting and devastating . Melbournians have had the stuffing knocked out of them already . Checking with a relative , a young doctor, She tells ne her housrehold of young professionals are getting down . She is the only one not working from home and bas gone from day shift straight into 12 hr a night shift at hospital as doctors sick.
    Scomo must know what Andrews has done but he is being nice and covering for him very Christian but damaging Victoria .

    I can’t remember if it was Gab, or who it was that got the letter back from their SA rep stating basically that the AG of South Australia was admitting it was unconstitutional and that she’d told the Police minister, to cover her arse.

    It wasn’t Gab.
    She is in Victoria.
    The letter didn’t quite say that.
    Not even close.
    My memory of it (paraphrasing):-

    Quarantine is a complex legal matter.
    AG has looked carefully at it and continues to do so.
    Plod has been advised by AG.

    It certainly didn’t contain anything like:-

    The jig’s up. You got me.

  84. Struth

    Here’s one to modify if you haven’t got a reply yet.
    This one was to Stoker.

    Dear Senator
    I have put to you a series of constitutional questions for you to answer.
    I am a Queenslander.
    These are very troubling times and it seems to a great many of us that the Government has abandoned the rule of law.
    You put yourself forward as a conservative, and a straight talking woman of conviction.
    If you cannot answer these simple questions, or indeed someone in your staff cannot, why not?
    I have received nothing back from you or other Queensland reps.
    Are there more serious problems for you than clearing the air with your constituents accusing you of putting yourselves above the rule of law and pointing out why you haven’t?
    I hope and pray you can prove me wrong.
    I am accusing you and your government of doing precisely that, and until you can correct me , it seems the constitution is very clear.
    Silence is consent, and you are part of the governing Liberal party.
    Others have received replies on this issue from reps, around Australia, with interesting and humourous brush offs by some, but not all. In South Australia for example , the AG has put in writing that she knows it’s unconstitutional and has warned her police minister that it is.
    Covering one’s backside we believe it is called.
    And we have it in writing.
    Is she wrong?
    Where does it mention in the constitution that the laws on the practice of Quarantining, which is a specific activity, involving the very serious actions of limiting movement and freedoms of people, can be decreed by state health department ignoramuses and tyrants?
    Section 51 clearly states where those laws must be made and from which parliament.
    Please respond and let me know where your government draws it’s power to “subbie out” law making to whoever and whichever tyrant it feels it wants to, in direct violation of the constitution?

    Thank you in anticipation

    6. Precautionary principle
    If a public health risk poses a serious threat, lack of full scientific certainty should not be used as a reason for postponing measures to prevent or control the public health risk.

    This, of course, is not what they have been calling the precautionary principle (the sort of neologism you would expect from someone trying to sell an idea on a topic they don’t understand to other people who don’t understand) – the Precautionary Principle as invoked by warmies seeking to shepherd people back to some palaeolithic Eden. I mean,. seriously, do they really think alliteration makes something sound more scientificalistologic?

    Risk properly is calculated as probability times consequence. Warmies eschew probability because a) it is difficult and b) it would would reveal their arguments to be ridiculous.

    For them it is enough to argue that AGW could create an earth of molten rivers thickly oozing around baking cracked rocks beneath as shimmering incandescent atmosphere, so we have to ban every century since the wheel. Add the probability of their scenarios and their arguments are eviscerated.

    What they are talking about in the text blockquoted above is simply weighing risk. The scary thing is that they have to be told to weigh risk.

    To date they have listened to their narrow band medical experts (of their varying characters and competence) and not looked at other risks such as other human costs and, not unrelated, the economic cost.

    We are in agreement.
    As sovereign people, we are supposed to be governed by rules we agree to.

    The point I make is in regard to the hijacking of words.
    It’s no different to soft cocks who decided that when the left kept on pushing the lie Hitler was right wing, they thought if they called themselves something other than right wing, it would go away.
    They should have learned by now the left eat soft cockery for breakfast.
    So to speak.

    You could call yourself a Political Mushroom and soon the left would call Hitler an extreme mushroom.

    You don’t let weirdos and gooses hijack language.
    We are a sovereign people, in every sense of the word.

    The cowardice on display by LL on this subject shows he’ll cave to anything, too concerned about who the left associate him with.

    The Dept of Defence puts out a daily news summary for all Defence staff – uniform & civilian. Everything from press articles to broadcast summaries to ministerial tweets. Nothing to write home about but I noticed yesterday’s op-ed in the Oz, ‘Beijing should be held to account’ (detailing how COVID slipped out of a Chinese lab) did not make the cut. Nor did it today. Meanwhile stories extolling Beijing’s positive efforts at virus control do. It’s a clear case of censorship.

    Having spent time with the flufflies in Strategic Policy Division (a group of infantile Trump haters) it’s no real surprise. Nor is it when you’ve read SECDEF”s majestically produced ‘reading’ pack. Which would do a gender studies professor at La Trobe proud.

    Thank you for sharing with us your considered view regarding directions undertaken by the State Coordinator during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    We thought to draw attention in this regard to the Attorney General’s observations in Parliament last week in response to like concerns having been raised in debate. The Attorney highlighted her appreciation of the matter, noting that after SA became part of the federation and we changed the rules, section 92 and section 117, which ensures that all subjects of The Queen are not to be discriminated against, each became important (I note additionally the importance of sections 51 and 109, to which you have referred). The Attorney went on to acknowledge that those provisions are particularly the subject of scrutiny in the present circumstances of global pandemic in relation to cross-border travel directions, and that it is necessary to be especially careful to be sure not to offend against those constitutional provisions. The Attorney further observed that there is particular importance in relation to her department’s provision of advice to the police commissioner as to the capacity to have directions and how and when they should apply.

    The gubbmint claims it is going to make Google et all pay for content from approved Australian news outlets:

    Facebook and Google will have to pay traditional news media to publish their content under a new code of conduct developed by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) that could be implemented by the end of this year.

    The Federal Government ordered the competition watchdog to develop the mandatory code of conduct to govern commercial dealings between tech giants and news media companies.

    The draft version of the code has been released by the ACCC and will be open to consultation until the end of August with legislation expected to be introduced to Parliament “shortly after” the consultation ends.

    Federal Treasurer Josh Frydenberg said the code would “create a level playing field” between the two.

    and

    The Treasurer will decide which digital platforms are subject to the code, with Mr Frydenberg saying it will “start with Google and Facebook”.

    Mr Frydenberg said the code would require designated platforms to “negotiate in good faith” payment agreements with Australian news companies.

    But the Australian Communications and Media Authority will assess which news outlets are eligible based on criteria set out in the draft code.

    “Namely that these businesses predominantly produce core news, such as journalism on matters on public importance, or local and community events and publish this online,” Mr Frydenberg said.

    “That these businesses adhere to appropriate professional editorial standards, they maintain editorial independence from the subject of their news coverage, and that they operate primarily in Australia for the purpose of serving Australian audiences.”

    Leaving aside the low likelihood of this coming to pass in any meaningful way, what a stitch-up in favour of the MSM and against independent news providers. Why should the ghastly Nein and the rest of them get paid while independent bloggers who break stories do not?

    ‘Appropriate professional and editorial standards’ my big toe. On that basis, none of the MSM should get a penny. But they will, if anyone does, because they have the ear of governments and it is a way of giving them a boost against their competition.

    I see someone has put you back in your box on your ‘Truth Telling’ thread.
    No comeback on the last comment? Perhaps a deletion of such inconvenience truth is in order?

    I find feeding your obsession with my father is positively entertaining, so I’ll continue.
    What your doxing of my dead father showed was that I was absolutely correct in posting that he was a volunteer in WW2. Your stalking him using the AWM records simply confirmed that.
    His voluntary active service in wartime was in stark contrast to my experience of being conscripted in peacetime to fight in an effort (subsequently unsuccessful) to defeat imperialism (sequentially French and American) in SE Asia.
    It also underscores the fact that Fascist imperialism in WW2 was a real, rather than an imagined threat, as Communism was in the 60s and 70s.
    This contrast goes a long way to explain why men volunteered, like my father, for the first conflict, but refused to do so in the second.

    There’s been an interesting sidelight.
    Traffic to my blog has increased markedly, and with it book sales. I’m almost out of hard copies and am encouraging eBook sales, which incidentally, opens up the US and UK markets.
    My blog has a strong following in both (as well as the Russian Federation as it happens – maybe I should get it translated.)

    Report: Nearly 100 Counts of Corruption During Construction of China’s Three Gorges Dam

    Australia’s Spectator revealed on Thursday that police received nearly 100 corruption complaints during the construction of the world’s largest hydroelectric dam, the Three Gorges Dam, currently straining under the pressure of once-in-a-century floods.

    “The Three Gorges project is a fitting metaphor for today’s China. Full of promise and fanfare at the time, it has failed to deliver the key objective of flood mitigation,” the Spectator concluded.

    China’s state news service Xinhua, in the course of applauding the civic spirit and determination on Thursday of a Communist Party member named Mei Junzhou in the eastern Jiangxi province, inadvertently admitted the flood control situation is more precarious than previous Party statements implied:

    The UK Daily Mail saw frayed nerves on Chinese social media getting strained further last week by a viral video from unknown creators that modeled what could happen if the Three Gorges Dam collapsed completely:

    That is what was dangerous about the Bunnings nutters. This thing was just a “look at moi” vehicle for them. I prefer to engage with people with a few questions, and the mask thing is actually a great starting point …

    So, how come, back in June, masks were somewhere between ineffectual and downright damaging, and now they are bullet-proof and compulsory?”

    Almost impossible to answer that one. (That FB vid you linked is great to make that point).

    Cracks in the wall
    Après Xi Jinping, le déluge?
    Maurice Newman

    Meanwhile, the Western media is so obsessed with Donald Trump and America’s social divisions it misses the bigger Marxist-Leninist story unfolding inside the Forbidden City. With his nation groaning with rigidities and excess capacity, President Xi must worry that, like the Soviet Union, 70 years may be the life expectancy of socialist experiments. As he considers his options, it seems he hopes to disarm threats at home by creating trouble abroad. Beijing’s moves on Hong Kong and its territorial claims over more than 80 per cent of the South China Sea are extremely provocative. It is also responsible for repeated violations of maritime rules. These are prone to miscalculation with unpredictable consequences.

  175. Of course there are more questions. What I sent to Nanny Mitchell (ht Farmer Gez)

    What is the death rate of COVID-19 to positive cases?
    What are the current numbers of people infected that are in ICU?
    Victoria put 1000 beds away for the sick for ICU so that question is pertinent.
    Premier Andrews always says at his press briefing how many new cases have presented, but how many have recovered in that same day period? Would that mean there is a net decrease?
    Kerry Chant suggested a week ago that 500k may have the rona. Would this mean that it is far less fatal than breathless reporting, like you engage in, suggests?
    What is the meaning of quarantine?
    Now I know the answers to these questions, why do you not ask these of the current administration? Does it justify shutting down entire economies and if so, why do you still have a gig?
    I know this too. It’s because you are Goebbels, a willing participant in spreading misinformation, as the answers to my questions posed would attest.
    I will be first up against the wall, you won’t be far behind because that’s the way tyranny works. They eliminate any educated men and women who know the ways that government works. You know this, as Solzhenitsyn wrote in The Gulag Archipelago. He experienced it first hand.
    So don’t smear those who are not wearing masks as nutters and idiots. They help pay your wage through advertising revenue. Or can the people, like Sleeping Giants, pressure your advertising revenue to desist from buying their products, like what they did to Alan Jones?
    Ask these questions to Premier Andrews. Be hard, not like that idiotic ditty you collaborated about washing hands and whatever. Victorians, and indeed Australians deserve better than what we are getting now.

    Flint nails it:

    Trump, saviour of the West

    David Flint The Spectator Australia 1 August 2020

    From November, news about the Wuhan virus will no doubt move from the front page. Our power-drunk politicians will have to calm down and think about how to repair the massive and unnecessary damage they have done to the Australian economy, including the $6 billion they admit to pouring down the drain to incentivise idleness. (Unsurprisingly, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a fan of Modern Monetary Theory which claims all this madness doesn’t really matter.)

    This change in the news will be because most Australian media slavishly follow the American mainstream, except when they are acting as Beijing’s preferred media outlet, as the ABC recently did in its denunciation of the principal victims of the communists’ monstrous human organ trade on demand. The fact is the US mainstream media no longer report the news. Instead, they are the propaganda arm of the Democratic party, once pro-slavery then pro-segregation and now so far left, they endorse the rioting anarcho-communist Black Lives Matter.

    Trump’s opponents are so determined he be defeated, they prefer to keep seriously damaging and unnecessary lockdowns in Democrat-controlled states to avoid any recovery before November. Similarly, Democrat governors and mayors are defunding police and allowing violent BLM riots to continue, with the compliant media not reporting or playing them down, even claiming they are peaceful.

    Fortunately, a Biden victory remains most unlikely. This is despite the fact that, as Washington-based strategist Gregory Copley confirms in an important new book, The New Total War of the 21st Century, Beijing’s overriding priority is to ensure President Trump, the most effective opponent they have ever encountered, will be defeated by Biden whose family has done so very well from them.

    His victory is also unlikely despite the polls. Most insisted Mrs Clinton would win in 2016; their mission is not so much to measure opinion. It is to shape it.

    Even the few unbiased polls can contain error, as shown here just before the last Australian election.

    Polling accuracy is increasingly undermined by the growing ‘shy Tory’ phenomenon. Not only are conservatives reluctant to reveal their opinion, so too is anyone who is not politically correct. They know that doing so can risk their jobs, or worse. They suspect that in a digital world, they can be easily identified as ‘class enemies’ by the latter-day Stasi.

    Trump is clearly the saviour of the West. To the few serious observers in 2016, his agenda confirmed this. They also realised a Clinton administration would be a sad continuation of Obama’s agenda that the US, neither exceptional nor worthy, had to be managed into a gradual decline.

    The consequence for Australia of a Biden win would be the transition from a world dominated since the settlement by a benign friendly power into one under a decidedly evil empire.

    Until Beijing maliciously allowed, without warning, the spread of the Wuhan virus, the extraordinary achievements of the Trump administration would have assured his re-election.

    Trump delivered record full employment, the unprecedented advancement of Americans of African origin, energy independence, taxation and regulatory reform, reduced illegal immigration, an end to Beijing’s abuse of trade relations and intellectual property rights, no more foreign military adventures, allies pulling their weight, a curb to judicial activism and restored US military dominance.

    His opponents never accepted the election result, hoping that a never-ending series of silver bullets, many illicit, would lead to his overthrow.

    This went against the respect traditionally accorded a president. We see this in press conferences where ‘journalists’ address him with offensive impertinence and unacceptable rudeness, without the courtesy of standing and genuinely seeking information or comment. Some interrupt and shriek increasingly insulting supplementary questions when the President has clearly moved on. All the time there is an infantile disrespect not only to the man but to the highest office in the land.

    When the President came to realise that the Obama administration had initiated an illicit ‘wiretapping’ of his campaign and rightly denounced this assault on democracy itself, this was treated by the media as proof he had lost his mind, even though they now ignore compelling evidence about the mind of his opponent.

    The ridicule with which the media greeted his claim was mirrored in Australia with TV presenters rolling over in mirth. Indeed, too much of the news in Australia about the US concentrates on imagined presidential ‘gaffes’. It was lazy journalism when they robotically did this to the Sovereign’s consort; to do this to the most powerful Western leader denies Australians important news.

    As with everything else coming from the US Left, however ridiculous, this propaganda has had a major influence in Australia. So much so that when Trump won the presidential election, this was greeted with surprised outrage by our media with at least one Australian journalist apparently near to a nervous breakdown.

    One empty explanation was to blame the electoral college. Without this, as with the Australian Senate, there would have been no federation. Yet Trump’s victory is downplayed because, a sensible man, he campaigned to win the college and not a pointless popular vote tainted by fraud, especially in the most populous states.

    Declassified documents have just shown the FBI leadership actually used a so-called defensive briefing for the Trump campaign in 2016, ostensibly to warn them about foreign intelligence attempts to spy on them, to do the spying. Imagine if before the last election, the Morrison government had ordered the Federal Police to spy on the ALP campaign. That is not what happens in democracies.

    Nixon lost the presidency not because of in any personal involvement in spying. It was in subsequently trying to cover it up. The Obama administration seems to have done far worse and this was continued for years by its placemen.

    Well before the election, Attorney General Barr should ensure that the Durham investigation results in criminal action against all the principal offenders.

    The future of the West could depend on it.

    If you are wondering why your viewers are leaving you in droves and heading over to the person with much more integrity, Alan Jones, let me put it to you quite simply.
    You are putting party politics above your nation, and at the expense of it, and it is unacceptable.
    You have a responsibility as a citizen and a public broadcaster to put your nation before your party.
    Your continuing howling about case numbers in Victoria only helps the left’s destruction of our nation by the fear mongering we are witnessing, and you are endorsing and validating it for cheap political points.
    We are right wingers, not leftists.
    The real sickness is TDS.
    Talking of “cases” and “horrific case numbers” would be the most infuriating, traitorous insult to our intelligence you can dribble.
    Cases where most will never even have any symptoms , where 99.8% of people survive and less of the demographic that usually die from catching a flu are dying from it, are irrelevant, let alone actually unknown, but you decide at this critical juncture to play fear mongering party politics against the left wingers by endorsing their fear campaign.
