    Yup. The better ones know they’ll get one back over time and get on with it. The call didn’t even affect her so after the first squawk I pegged her as Ms I’m Impor-Tant from Interstate.

    There is zero intellectual curiosity from the media today.

    Universities probably don’t include intellectual curiosity in their communications/journalism courses.
    In the past on the job training of reporters probably included having intellectual curiosity.

    EXCLUSIVE: King of the Cross John Ibrahim’s cokehead brother Sam has repeatedly failed drug tests in prison – and will be DEPORTED to Lebanon as an ‘unlawful non-citizen’ as soon as he is released

    Sam Ibrahim is the older brother of former Sydney night club boss John Ibrahim
    He is serving a minimum sentence of five and a half years for supplying firearms
    Sam has been declared an illegal non-citizen and will be deported upon release
    He will be taken to the Villawood detention centre or flown straight to Lebanon
    Sam, 54, was refused parole after repeatedly failing to comply with drug testing

    Kipling:
    I KEEP six honest serving-men
    (They taught me all I knew);
    Their names are What and Why and When
    And How and Where and Who.
    I send them over land and sea,
    I send them east and west;
    But after they have worked for me,
    I give them all a rest.

    I let them rest from nine till five,
    For I am busy then,
    As well as breakfast, lunch, and tea,
    For they are hungry men.
    But different folk have different views;
    I know a person small—
    She keeps ten million serving-men,
    Who get no rest at all!

    She sends’em abroad on her own affairs,
    From the second she opens her eyes—
    One million Hows, two million Wheres,
    And seven million Whys!

    Perfect response Sir. Would you accept a role in a demonstrably dangerous assignment conducting completely deniable activities but supported by all local residents other than Williamson. I speak of course of a role of a Rudd catcher.
    It is unlikely that the assignment will be overly dangerous because our two local coppers are presently spending all their time pursuing the WAGs of our newly arrived Southern football team morons. It is a nice change for them from their usual target of pursuing the Iron Women trainees.

    I tried to email Kraft foods about their Heinz Big n Chunky chicken and corn soup which doesn’t seem to contain any chicken. Nor do their beef and mushroom soups contain any beef. On pointing this out at step one of the process of getting a message to them, I got an automatic reply pointing out that meat could cause cancer. On saying that I wanted to continue I git to stage two of four which wanted my name and email address, and then refused to continue to stage three

    Some HTML programmer has cleverly arranged so that if the company is screwing up, they’ll never find out about it.

    I had a similar problem with Woolworths yesterday, and I’ve had the same thing happen.with other big companies. You’d think someone would stress test and check their customer interface, but obviously this is too hard.

    If my company were screwing up, I’d want to know about it. Anybody who imagines that big companies are efficient and competently run hasn’t tried to point out their blunders to them.

    Hasbro’s latest toy had a lot of parents very worried

    A kids’ movie, Trolls World Tour, opened online in April. The venerable Hasbro toy company got a license to create troll dolls, including one in the image of the lead character, Poppy. So far, so normal.

    Things got really weird, though, when a mother discovered that there was a button between the doll’s legs that, when pushed, caused the doll to let out giggles and little breathy squeals.

    No. New Yorkers are the biggest drama queens in the world and some have left.. temporarily fro the most part. I keep reading that the serious homeless problem is around the Upper West Side. Well, the Upper West Side was always a crappy part of NYC anyway. Who gives a shit as it’s full of lefties.

    They keep giving stats about NY like the murder and shooting rats as percentages. It sounds like a lot until you see the actual numbers and they aren’t large. I know this may sound coarse, but it would be how most NYers would think. If the killings are happening in Black and Spanish Harlem or the Bronx it’s no biggie because you generally expect shit like that to happen there. If bad shit begins to occur in Midtown or the Upper East Side, then it’s a little worrying.

    But look, NY in the 80s to early 90s was bad too and people weren’t running away.

    I’ll say one thing though, if we can’t find a way to control the virus, it could pose a big problem. We’ll see.

    Diggers’ rogue killer set to walk free in Afghan deal over prisoner swap
    Hekmatullah shot dead the three Australians and wounded two as they played cards at a forward ­operating base north of Australia’s main base at Tarin Kowt in 2012

    A rogue Afghan soldier who murdered three Australians as they played cards at their fortified base in ­Afghanistan is set to be ­released from jail after just seven years, under a prisoner swap brokered by the Trump administration.

    Senior Defence officers have warned the families of Private Robert Poate, Lance Corporal Stjepan “Rick” Milosevic and Sapper James Martin that their sons’ killer, Hekmatullah, is likely to be freed in the next few days.

    The warning came as US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo pressured the Afghan government to release 400 remaining prisoners to secure peace with the Taliban after two decades of bloodshed.

    Australian officials, including Foreign Minister Marise Payne and Defence Minister Linda Reynolds, have been frantically lobbying Afghan officials in an ­effort to keep Hekmatullah ­behind bars at Kabul’s Pul-e-Charkhi prison.

    But an Afghan tribal assembly on Sunday green-lighted the ­release of the prisoners — including Hekmatullah — who had been held for the most serious crimes, including terrorist attacks on civilians and coalition forces.

    Poate’s father, Hugh, said a lieutenant colonel and an army chaplain visited him and his wife, Janny, at their Canberra home on Friday to tell them their son’s killer was set to be freed.

    “Janny and I looked at each other. It was like deflating a balloon,” he said.

    In a joint statement, the families of the three men said: “The news passed to us from senior ­Defence officers on Friday evening has come as a crushing blow. There can never be complete closure for us now.

    “Hekmatullah should have been executed — as was his sentence from the highest court of­ ­Afghanistan — not released.”

    Hekmatullah, who like many Afghans is known by only one name, shot dead the three Australians and wounded two others as they played cards at a forward ­operating base north of Australia’s main base at Tarin Kowt on ­August 29, 2012.

    The so-called “green-on-blue” killings sparked a six-month manhunt involving elite Australian spies, special forces operators, and cutting-edge technological capabilities. Hekmatullah was eventually found and arrested in the Pakistani city of Quetta.

    He later confessed to the killings, and vowed he would do the same again. He avoided execution, despite being handed a death sentence by the Afghan Supreme Court in 2013.

    Breaking.

    Food for thought from The Express:

    You voted Conservative but ended up with comrade Boris – Tories out-Labouring Labour

    THE rate at which the Tories are stealing Labour’s clothes is going to see Sir Keir Starmer stark naked very soon. Sorry, you can’t mentally un-see that can you?

    Seriously, the socialist knight of the realm is really going to have to tell us, in detail, what his policies are soon or he’s simply going to have none left because the Conservatives have nicked them all. Boris Johnson’s new “build, build, build” developers’ revolution announced today which promises the biggest housing shake-up for 70 years and a million more homes by the end of this parliament are straight out of the socialist playbook. Yes some critics have seen it as a jobs-for-the-boys sweetener for Britain’s esteemed developers and the quality, as ever, remains to be seen, but on paper, it’s a million more houses, developers stumping-up more than they do currently for local community infrastructure, promises of carbon-neutral tree-lined leafy glades, and guarantees on affordable housing.

    It’s the stuff of old-school Labour wet dreams – and remember while Boris was London mayor more social housing went up than ever did under the actual socialist Ken Livingstone.

    And there’s more.

    Among some very sketchy promises made by Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer so far is a pledge to re-nationalise the railways.

    Too late mate, Grant Shapps, below, did that months ago.

    Boris is now very much the Fat Controller with the state propping-up the rail network and collecting the fares on your behalf.

    And I wouldn’t bet on that situation changing anytime soon given the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

    And there’s much more.

    Boris’ crackdown on junk food ads? Ed Miliband’s idea.

    Energy price cap? Labour.

    Raising minimum wage? Higher taxes on empty homes? Labour and Labour.

    Tougher rules on speaking English in the public sector?

    Banning wild animals in circuses?

    ALL Labour proposals (admittedly made under David Cameron’s tenure).

    Ed Miliband, whisper it quietly, even suggested the nation might even want to look at something called an EU referendum if Brussels didn’t wind its neck in.

    And not even the craziest union boss in the wildest work-to-rule excesses of the 1970s would have dreamed the state would actually be paying the nation’s workforce to, er, not work.

    The lads at British Leyland had a crack for a while but they could only manage a three day week.

    Some years ago in an unlikely comedy moment, President of Tanzania Julius Nyerere coined the timeless gem: “The United States is a one-party state but, with typical American extravagance, they have two of them.”

    And it really is hard to see how Sir Keir is going to put any clear red water between this Government and his own party without lurching once more down the lefty Corbyn path he knows is electoral suicide.

    Maybe not but opening the door with a gun in your hand? That’s a Butch Cassidy moment. He could easily have talked it out through the door if he had his doubts and not opened the door until satisfied. If that was you inside what would you do?

    China “extensively” threatens and intimidates Australian citizens on Australian soil – ASIO –

    Foreign forces ‘spying on diaspora’, says ASIO

    The nation’s top spy agency has warned foreign governments are targeting and exploiting diaspora communities, using threats of harm and intimidation against ­individuals and their families in Australia and overseas.

    The Australian Security Intelligence Organisation has described the level of foreign interference in the country as ­“extensive”, with overseas governments seeking to influence ­diaspora communities “to control or quash opposition”.

    ASIO, which does not name China in its submission to a Senate inquiry into issues facing diaspora communities, said inter­ference in Australia involved “clandestine or deceptive activities” overseen by foreign powers.

    “Australia is a multicultural society with a diverse range of ­diaspora groups,” ASIO said. “These diaspora groups are often the victims of foreign interference.

    Interference has included threats of harm to individuals and/or their families, both in Australia and abroad. In some cases, foreign governments will seek to use members of the diaspora community in Australia to monitor, direct and influence the ­activities of the same diaspora communities.

    “These threats have come ­directly from foreign government representatives and also from other members of the diaspora communities themselves, acting at the direction of the foreign government.”

    A Solution for This Week’s Mystery Announcement

    https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2020/08/a_solution_for_this_weeks_mystery_announcement.html

    The mystery began when the President traveled to Cleveland. When he left under very high security, the staff, in what struck some as an unusual move, stood outside the White House to see him off to Ohio. In Cleveland, while standing in front of Whirlpool laundry machines, he said something curious:

    “I have a lot of enemies. This may be the last time you see me for a while. I have a lot of very rich enemies. They’re not happy with what I’m doing. But I figure we have one chance to do it. No other president is gonna do what I do.”

    To what was this in reference? And why the staff sendoff?

    Then check how many CCP/Chinese Companies that are listed on NYSE and NASDAQ and have raised $Trillions that pay no notice to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act while aided and abetted by the DemoGOP Swamp.

    Of those cases, there had been a 33 per cent increase in the number of people under 18 presenting with self-harm.

    Mr Foley said the funding was in response to the increasing demand for acute services in clinical settings and the broader Victorian community.

    He said there had been a 23.3 per cent increase in Victorians presenting at acute settings with a mental illness since the end of July.

    Lockdown the biggest threat to community

    Targeted policies, not unrealistic hopes of a vaccine, are what we need in the fight against the devastating virus pandemic

    I RECEIVED an email yesterday from a stranger. A desperate young woman, living alone in locked-down Melbourne.

    She says she has been suicidal before, and now is banned by her government from doing what would save her — going out and meeting people.

    What’s more, her friends have lost their jobs because of the virus bans: “No one in my support network has the energy to be supportive enough more …

    “Genuinely, I’m terrified I won’t survive this.”

    She is not alone. The number of young Victorians turning up to hospital after trying to stab, poison or otherwise hurt themselves, is up 33 per cent.

    With this in my mind, I write this.

    Politicians are destroying Australia — throwing a million people out of work, causing suicides — because they’ve fallen for two great weaknesses.

    One is this desperate hope that a vaccine will soon save us.

    The second is this fake sentimentality that has my media critics babbling that I’m a granny-killing monster for noting that this virus kills mainly the very old and frail.

    These weaknesses mean we’ve been fighting new virus outbreaks with brutal bans that will cause horrific pain if they go on much longer.

    Just look at Victoria. It is being smashed to pieces before your eyes.

    How much will be left of this country if we keeping fighting the virus this way, month after month?

    The hope in a vaccine is stopping many people from even asking this critical question.

    Listen to them. It will all be over soon! We will “bounce back” next year! We just need to endure these bans for a few months and a vaccine will come, the virus will go, and we will “come out the other side”.

    They sound just like World War I generals, dreaming of that last victorious rush into the artillery and machine gun fire that tore their men to pieces.

    Last week the Prime Minister fed this fantastic dream of a vaccine just around the corner.

    “There are many projects that are under way around the world,” he enthused.

    His Acting Chief Medical Officer, Paul Kelly, backed him: “There is really strong optimism here … Well over a hundred different types of vaccine that are in development.”

    But Kelly immediately faltered: “We can’t promise there will be a vaccine… We have never had a vaccine for a coronavirus in the world before.”

    No, we haven’t. And the head of the World Health Organisation last week cautioned: “There’s no silver bullet at the moment, and there may never be.”

    Sure, there’s hope. Oxford researchers are starting “phase-3 trials” of a potential vaccine to see if it works on people in real-world situations.

    Russia will start its own mass vaccination campaign in October with a vaccine it still hasn’t finished testing.

    It might work. But WHO spokesman Christian Lindmeier said of the Russian trial: “We have not seen anything official that’s important.”

    He added: “Between finding or having a clue of maybe having a vaccine that works and having gone through all the stages, is a big difference.”

    Many potential vaccines fail at that final hurdle, and even those that succeed may have terrible side-effects or not work well.

    As America’s top infectious diseases expert, Anthony Fauci, says: “We don’t know yet what the efficacy might be … But the chance of it being 98 per cent effective is not great.”

    And remember: we already have flu vaccines, yet 1255 Australians still died from influenza in 2017.

    That’s one reason the WHO’s Dr Maria Van Kerkhove says no to national lockdowns — to a “blunt, sheer force instrument” like Victoria’s — each time there is an outbreak.

    No country can keep doing that. The cost is just too high, she says.

    Never mind the financial cost. People need human contact and get broken by lockdowns. People sick with other conditions die because they miss out on medical treatment. In fact, researchers at Sheffield and Loughborough universities estimate 21,000 people in Britain died not of the virus but the lockdown.

    There must be a better way of fighting this virus that does not cause such suffering.

    And there is. Let me say it yet again.

    Be far tougher on quarantining the infectious. It is appalling that Victoria’s system of home quarantine is so slack that a quarter of the sick weren’t at home when health teams called to check.

    Do faster testing. Why does Victoria have tests that take days to tell people if they are sick, when there are now kits that can give an answer within two hours?

    Be far tougher on protecting those most likely to die. It is a scandal that the federal and Victorian governments let the virus get into more than 100 nursing homes.

    Look now: Based on commonwealth figures, 178 of the 210 Victorians to die so far were in aged care.

    But that brings me to that other great weakness in our thinking: a fake sentimentality.

    I pointed out last week that Victoria’s crude bans were essentially devastating the young to stop the very old from dying a few months, or a couple of years, earlier.

    More than half our dead were 82 or older. Many had other serious conditions.

    I have since been vilified by the media Left — particularly on the ABC — for allegedly saying the lives of old people had no value.

    Bull. They do. Unlike my critics, I have warned since March that we weren’t doing enough to save the old.

    I now say we are trying to save them with policies that cause a suffering that my critics refuse to confront.

    These crude bans sacrifice young lives to save the very old. This cannot make sense.

    But our politicians hide from this truth — that trying to stop everyone from getting the virus is too devastating, particularly if there’s no vaccine, and stopping the very old and frail from dying should be our chief aim.

    Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews was at it again on Sunday, insisting this virus could kill anyone: “I’ve had to stand here the last few days and report two people in their 30s who have died.”

    But what Andrews refused to confirm is that at least one — probably both — of those unusually young deaths occurred in disability units.

    In fact, more than 70 infections have broken out in disability care in Victoria, killing two people. At least three other deaths occurred in cancer wards.

    No, I’m not saying their lives are worthless. I’m saying these victims probably had other medical conditions, and died because we keep letting the virus get into the very places we should shut down tight.

    The government could have stopped that dying, without bans that cause even worse suffering among the young and fit.

    Too “heartless” a truth for the ABC? Then look at what “compassion” is doing right now.

    It would break the hearts of those with eyes to see.

  149. Struth

    The plan so far.
    We sneak into the carpeted media room where Andrews gives his daily sermon.

    At a time pre-synchronised and ordained and with god’s righteous blessing, Mrs Struth will Run her fingers down the chalk board, while Calli jumps up and holds all at bay with her pitchfork, while they still squirm from the fingernail attack.
    I will rush Dan with my high “friction creating” sneekers, sliding them along the carpet as I go, and give him a static electricity charge with my finger.
    NFA’s brown eye team then comes in, half facing Dan and half the Cameras and proceeds to moon everyone.
    Then to send a clear message as to who we know owns him, I give him a Chinese burn on the arm.
    The brown eye team then pull up strides, shoot the roof with spit balls and we make a split second exit!!!

    From the flavour of overnight discussions, the topic of the day is ‘armed resistance’. Again.

    Not violence. Not insurrection. Resistance, but of the armed kind.

    Because that word’s oh so French 1943ish.

    At that point you should have then posted a sad video of Edith Piaf in a duet with Charles Aznavour singing that wartime favourite “Absinthe Mon Ami”.
    Then lift the mood with a clip of Vera Lynn with the classic “My baby jumped over, the white cliffs of Dover.”

  167. 1735099

    I’m not absolving the cops. But there were were more options to opening the door with a gun.

    And I keep reading here that it should be every citizen’s right to own a gun for “self-defence”.
    If there is someone who sounds hostile at your door, you’d make sure your gun was in your hand, if self-defence was your concern.
    It wouldn’t be all that useful in a drawer or cupboard somewhere else in the house.
    Wankers….

    Finally!

    ABC news reporting on the number of health care workers with Covid in Vic and the need for high quality masks for those dealing daily with patients.

    The definitive statement is made that the standard surgical mask offers almost no protection against airborne influenza viruses.

    Never in the field of human endeavour has so much bullshit been piled on so many by so few.

    I’d love to help, but I have an appointment with some Mexicans who, I have been assured, can knock us up an “Armed Resistance” website at a bargain basement price.

    But what Andrews refused to confirm is that at least one — probably both — of those unusually young deaths occurred in disability units.

    In fact, more than 70 infections have broken out in disability care in Victoria, killing two people. At least three other deaths occurred in cancer wards.

    No, I’m not saying their lives are worthless. I’m saying these victims probably had other medical conditions, and died because we keep letting the virus get into the very places we should shut down tight.

    That’s one facet of this panicdemic and the reporting thereon — I haven’t seen reports of COVID-19 being detected in disability units, group homes and the like — are these being kept quiet in order to do just what that jug-eared imbecile is doing? scaring the public that it affects young people too but not saying that these young persons have compromised and complex medical conditions? just wondering

    And we go down in History as the worst, most gutless, idiotic, soft, gullible and docile humans in history.
    We will be laughed about for eternity.
    A thousand years from now, people will shake their heads at what happened in the year 2020.

    In the end Children, this great civilisation, of invention and decency, of medicine and integrity, ingenuity and progress, of global war winning domination and trade, of heart transplants and surgical miracles, became soft and ridiculous, allowed itself to be disarmed, lost it’s mind, could not even work out how many sexes there were, totally corrupted, it killed itself off fearing what turned out to a common cold because, soft, insulated and apathetic, too many were not concerned about growth of government over many years, many pushed for it, and believed their governments would never lie to them.

    What’s the lesson here, children…………….?

    From midnight on Sunday, the workforce of supermarket warehouses and food distribution centres will be reduced by one third…

    Luckily, the Workers’ Pal is onto it, like a rat up a drainpipe:

    Opposition spokesman for NDIS Bill Shorten says while government data includes breakdowns for aged care, there is nothing on how many people with disabilities have died or been infected.

    Mr Shorten is calling on the minister for the NDIS, Stuart Robert, to order the National Disability Insurance Agency and the NDIA Quality and Safeguards Commission to publish data on Australia’s disability community.

    This isn’t going to be Maximum Leader’s fault if Bill has any say.

    Amusing. The DCMO is requesting parents stop their children socialising so much. This includes activities like pub crawls.

    So, after decades of eroding families and parental authority, we are now expected to rein in unruly young adults.

    I get the impression Faulty that you are now saying your reference to “violence and armed resistance” on 17th July was just a bit of joking around?
    Or that it was just a bit of empty bragging to impress people?

    Either way, you really aren’t serious about “violence and armed resistance”?

    Tony Thomas at Quadrant gets stuck into the ABC’s denialism over one of their chaps casting nasturtiums at Nicole Flint’s sartorial style. Just because he has a spot in a News Corp paper doesn’t make him any less an ABC personality first and foremost.
    There have been plenty of Labor women (state and federal) who dress well, but 80% of the media are more likely to praise them than to take them to task for anything at all, and particularly not make derogatory comments on their dress sense.
    But as Tony says, if the ABC didn’t have double standards it would be a very strange day.
