A Michaelmas To Remember

As Daniel Andrews and Graham Ashton are grilled on the deaths of several hundred people…

The Holy Father was elected to clean up Vatican finances. He plays a long game and is to be thanked and congratulated on recent developments. I hope the cleaning of the stables continues in both the Vatican and Victoria.”

– His Eminence George Cardinal Pell AC on the pope’s dismissal of Cardinal Angelo Becciu – the man who repeatedly tried to stymie Pell’s financial reforms at the Vatican before being caught out cooking the books. Ever the optimist, Pell seems to think Victorian officials will also be held to account eventually for negligently killing people and lying about it.

 
Cardinal Pell will touch down in Rome on Tuesday, 29th – feast day of St Michael the Archangel.

UPDATE: Beclowned anti-Pell loser has a lady tanty:

    Full marks to Pell, a man I do admire. He defeated Evil. Evil being the vile and stinking kakistocracy which so defiles Victoria – the ALP Central Commitee, the police, the bureaucracy and the judiciary. The foecal, foetid stench of ‘governance’ in Vic wafts over Australia like a toxic curse.

    Interesting about Vatican finances . I remember when the pope mysteriously died and embalmed before pm could be performed . One reason hypothesised that he was going to investigate Vatican finances . All swept under the carpet until an investigative reporter was asked to follow up. He wrote a book called Blood on the Cross I think, and there was a lay person from Vatican finance found hanged on London Bridge with no way of doing it himself . FBI or CIA also traced Mafia money being laundered in Vatican , Bishop of Chicago involved however died before he could be charged ( from memory) who also had a mistress on super and written off as a PA. She used to travel with him. All can be fact checked.

    Pell, an obviously innocent man to all except his corrupt persecutors , returns to Rome to tidy up a few things before returning home. I hope his visit is brief and that nobody attempts to get him to remain and finish off the job he had started on cleaning up the corrupt disgrace that is otherwise known as the Vatican. The Catholic Church has a weak populist Pope who is sitting on top of an organisation that is riddled with nasty self serving prelates who will stoop to the lowest of low levels to protect their rackets and their lack of morality. Pell should not associate with any of these lowlifes. They tried to ruin him and the only thing he should feel for them, from the Pope down, is contempt.

    That’s gonna leave a mark. But alas the cleaning of the Augean stables of Victoria has yet to begin, and there is little sign of it doing so.

    Only last night they were running a very good documentary about what Lucie Morris-Marr (who she?) would presumably call “formerly convicted child murderer” Lindy Chamberlain. There were details of how the media manipulated the presentation of the Chamberlains (to their detriment) that are hair-raising even in today’s climate.

  8. mem

    It is interesting that the Security company had already directed its staff to undertake online training prior to the outcome of the Cabinet meeting. Someone had already given the company the thumbs up or a very strange coincidence? My reading of the Ashton communications is that they might be a cover for a direction already agreed but not necessarily by him.

  9. Catcalling Inebriate

    Pell being an expert manager, maybe he can explain how – under his watch – the Catholic Church ran a child abuse ring and cover up? Rather he just shut up and skulks back to head office.

  10. Tim Neilson

    Pell being an expert manager, maybe he can explain how – under his watch – the Catholic Church ran a child abuse ring and cover up?

    What do you mean by “under his watch”? Can you identify a particular time period during which Pell held a position with authority to investigate and deal with such matters and failed to do so?

    Hopefully, Cardinal Pell will sue the pants off Lucie Morris-Marr.

    Is Louise Milligan still under home detention in Viccostan?

  13. Fair Shake

    Dandrews has updated his response statement to the High Court overturning Pells conviction 7 zip:
    ‘I see you
    I hear you
    I believe you
    Unless I cannot remember or do not recall’

  14. woolfe

    Hopefully he will sue LMM and Catcalling Inebriate for defamation.

  15. sabena

    Needless to say the phrase “former convicted pedophile” is defamatory.
    Why?
    Because the conviction became a nullity-so it was not “former” and not a conviction.”Pedophile” describes a condition,not a crime, and the evidence in respect of Cardinal Pell did not,on any view, establish that he was that type of person or had a tendency to act in that way.
    Lucie Morris-Marr no doubt thinks that she is entitled to say that-that just shows the dangers of the journalism bubble.Lets hope she suffers some punishment as a result.

  16. Hay Stockard

    When you forget how low lefards are there is always pond life such as Lucie Two-Fathers and Catcalling Invertebrate to remind you.

  17. Rex Mango

    One thing that struck me about High Court overturning Pell’s conviction 7 nil, was the entire premise of A Few Good Men being Tom Cruise afraid to prosecute Colonel Jack Nicholson due the consequences if the case fell apart. Kevin Bacon etc all warned Tom what would happen if he went too far chasing a middle ranking marine officer. Has anyone lost their job as a result of the Pell stitch up?

  18. Colonel Bunty Golightly

    Is she related to the grub that infests the ABC?

  19. candy

    So apparently former convicted paedophile

    This is Ms Marr’s way of saying Cardinal Pell is a p…..file, but has just vacated the position or retired.

    “Former” meaning you were something, but just got another job or whatever, like being a former hairdresser and so on but you definitely a hairdresser.

    Imaginative and very nasty. Lawyers could have a field day with that.

  20. kae

    Lucie is a dill.

    The conviction was found to be unsound and was overturned.

    He wasn’t convicted.

    Unfortunately there are still people who believed the lies and the false conviction of Lindy Chamberlain.

    She’s had to live with that for 40 years and is still living with that now. Even after dingos have taken other children in Queensland, and even adults.

  22. Up The Workers!

    Who were the various State or Federal Presidents of the A.L.P. when Milton Orkopoulos, M.P., Keith Wright, M.P., Bill D’Arcy, M.P., Terry Martin M.P., Bob Collins, M.P., Andres Puig, ex-Victorian A.L.P. Assistant State Secretary, Bonking Billy Short-One , M.P, (not to mention Kevin “Heiner Affair” Rudd) were all doing their “thing” with the kiddies?

    Why are those various State or Federal Presidents of the Labor Party treated preferentially to Senior Christian clergy and not publicly shamed, imprisoned or hounded from their jobs?

    Given the frequency of their offences, surely their behaviour qualifies as “Institutional Child Abuse”.

    Why were they exempted by Juliar Gillard from the investigations of the nobbled “Royal Commission into Institutional Child Abuse” – otherwise known as the “Get Pell Royal Commission”?

  23. Mother Lode

    Unfortunately there are still people who believed the lies and the false conviction of Lindy Chamberlain.

    I remember it was the press that really whipped up the frenzy.

    Now they are wagging their fingers, tut-tutting punters for so rushing to judgement.

    But the MSM was happy to gang up on the Cardinal, and now they are pointing at the Victorian government and denouncing their management of the pandemic epidemic academic*

    * The whole thing being built on shoddy models by dollar-sniffing sycophantic boffins.

    Unfortunately there are still people who believed the lies and the false conviction of Lindy Chamberlain.

    She’s had to live with that for 40 years and is still living with that now. Even after dingos have taken other children in Queensland, and even adults.

    The media destroyed her and her family, it was religious persecution because the media (the godless feckless ABC in particular) despise people of faith – I think it’s because they are a challenging afront to their own spiritual emptiness – remember that repulsive creature who apologised to Lindy Chamberlain for her part in the media persecution — I’ve forgotten her name but the ravages of her troubled conscience can be seen on her bloated ugly persona.

  25. Tintarella di Luna

    Who were the various State or Federal Presidents of the A.L.P. when Milton Orkopoulos, M.P., Keith Wright, M.P., Bill D’Arcy, M.P., Terry Martin M.P., Bob Collins, M.P., Andres Puig, ex-Victorian A.L.P.

    Interesting isn’t it? that when you ask Signorina Google to give you a list of Australian Politicians convicted of crimes on the list are a number convicted of child sexual offences and tellingly all seem to be from the same political party — the rest are fraudsters and sundry n’er-do-wells but the crimes against children seem to be from the same roost.

  26. Tintarella di Luna

    Given the frequency of their offences, surely their behaviour qualifies as “Institutional Child Abuse”.

    And given that the parliaments of all Australian jurisdictions make laws in relation to child sexual abuse why was there no examination of the role of parliament examined, it being the institution that legislates in relation to all other institutions, Hmmm?

  27. Bronson

    Cat the piss head and two dads Lucie have never been seen in the same room together – coincidence I think not. Cat trolling for Lucie conveniently forgets the Melbourne Response. Stay of the piss Cat your memory might improve if not your liver will.

  28. Professor Fred Lenin

    Boris Johnsons appointment of two extreme right wingers to positions of authority at the Woke BBC must be resisted , it could set a precedent . The subtle insidious infiltration of extreme right wingers into the media is a threat to the balancedWoke people who are there now. It is difficult to imagine the media without the present fair minded woke people who run it now ,we must resits this march through our institutions .
    We will be having extreme right wing teachers and public employees next,and even the Liberal party will be corrupted by them we cant have non woke politicians , its not fair .

  29. Suburban Boy

    Ever the optimist, Pell seems to think Victorian officials will also be held to account eventually for negligently killing people and lying about it.

    With respect, CL, I think that is over-interpreting His Eminence’s comment. Rather, I think it was a more general hope for some sort of consequences for the Victorian officials.

    And consequences have started. With the resignation of Mikakos, one of the turds in the Augean stables has been flushed away (if only as far as the back bench).

  30. Old Lefty

    And where are the inquires into the ABC (Richard Neville and his mates, Bill Hurrey, Jon Stephens for a start)?

  31. Rob MW

    So apparently former convicted paedophile #GeorgePell will return to Rome this week. He initially vowed he’d go quietly when he spoke after being released from jail But he didn’t mean it. Time will tell whether Vatican cold shoulders, or warm handshakes, await him.

    Apparently sweetie you are not cognately aware that Governance in the State of Victoria, Administrative enforcement in the State of Victoria, Transparency in the State of Victoria and Judicially in the State of Victoria is rotten to its very core.

    Here is a hint; Evidence matter’s, Process & Fairness matter and Integrity and Dignity matter none of which the State of Victoria can display, otherwise, it’s just the innuendo of the mob and an unrestrained police force that rule.

  32. AC

    Pell needs to sue for defamation.

  33. Mother Lode

    Pell needs to sue for defamation.

    I really think he does.

    Not so much for the money as to get people rolling on each other, which they will do for a couple of bucks because it is not some great cause, but a pack of grasping individuals forming temporary alliances for their own benefit.

  34. calli

    Pell needs to sue for defamation.

    Agreed. That clown should be taken yo the cleaners.

    Sandmann her!

  35. Up The Workers!

    Old Lefty at 12.55 p.m.

    And don’t forget the A.L.P.B.C.’s famous cricket commentator, Peter Roebuck, (look him up on Google or Wikipedia) who, like Bob Collins and Puig, reputedly “offed” himself before an embarrassing Court Appearance alleging the non-consensual fiddling of numerous underprivileged youngsters.

  36. Up The Workers!

    To Tintarella di Luna, at 12.36 p.m.:

    Yes, it is a very interesting “Who’s Who” of the ‘Association of Leftard Paedos’.

    I’ve often thought that they should perhaps re-name it: “Wikipaedo”.

  37. H B Bear

    Time to lawyer up and make people pay. The Christian turning the other cheek doesn’t work with people like them.

    Pay your costs and give the rest to a decent charity.

  38. AC

    He should also sue Milligan – the timing of her book looks to have had an impact on the jury for the initial trial, not to mention all her public comments on their ABC.

  39. Chris M

    How does Pell get to travel when all other non-gov Australian citizens are barred in? Looks like more corruption…

  40. Tim Neilson

    How does Pell get to travel when all other non-gov Australian citizens are barred in?

    Is that right? I thought it was a matter of applying for a permit.

  41. Chris M

    They are extremely stringent on reasons, it’s very difficult to get approval to leave the country. Unless you are on govt business in which case everything is good to go. Outrageous really.

    Makes a mockery of Scotty whining to Premiers to open state borders.

  42. stackja

    I believe George Pell is a Vatican diplomat.
    Pell didn’t have to come back from the Vatican. He chose to. Vic police failed to convict. He is free to go wherever he wants.

    I didn’t know George Pell was a member of the Victorian police force?

    ” remember that repulsive creature who apologised to Lindy Chamberlain for her part in the media persecution — I’ve forgotten her name ”

    Wendy Harmer?

    The only glitch in last night’s documentary on the Chamberlain case was the gratuitous presence of Mike Carlton, who opined that Lindy was a victim of misogyny because the police and the judiciary was blokes only in those (pre Susan Ryan) days.

    Typically cheap, lazy, glib and unoriginal Carlton product. Also inaccurate. One of the leading forensic, err, experts was a woman. And it doesn’t explain Harmer, who attacked Lindy in some smartarse comedy routine

  45. Old Lefty

    According to Hendo, another low-rent Pell-hating journo, Melissa Davey, has again said that lawyers discussed the complainant’s (secret) testimony with her in the corridors during the trial, and said it was very convincing.

    On the face of it, that would be a gross breach of the suppression orders. Now it defies all credibility that Richter or anyone else on the defence team would jeopardise their case by having such a conversation, let alone by telling a Pell-hating journo that the testimony was convincing. So who, if anybody, did blab to her? Will there be an investigation?

  46. Boambee John

    Old Lefty

    Will there be an investigation?

    Of course not. These discussions (if they really did occur) would be part of the program of managed “leaks” to poison the well against Cdl Pell.

    See also whatshername, writer of the poisonous book on the case pre-trial.

  47. Look what they’ve done to Morris – Marr’s .,. brain Ma …. Look’s like she’s gone insane Ma’ .. well that lefty tard has a chicken bone brain and looks like now she’s gone totally insane ….. Look what they’ve done to Morris – Marr’s Brain … Altogether now .

    I remember it was the press that really whipped up the frenzy.

    Journalists then were mostly uneducated shits.

    Now they’re mostly overeducated shits.

  49. Leigh Lowe

    Yes, Old Lefty.
    There was lots of backgrounding going on.
    I distinctly remember Faino saying “If you had seen all the evidence …”
    So how did Faino get to “see all the suppressed evidence”?

  50. Jannie

    Its good that Pell is free. Time to think about Julian Assange. Bring him home.

  51. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    Journalism? Pell was not ‘convicted’ at all. Ever. He appealed to the highest court in the land and was exonerated of all guilt by a 7-0 verdict in his favour. So he is not a ‘former convicted p..’ at all.

    They don’t mind how much they lie.

  52. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    They are extremely stringent on reasons, it’s very difficult to get approval to leave the country.

    The travel bans in and out of Australia are for administrative quarantine convenience; no other reason.

    There is far less concern when a citizen of another country wants to leave Australia than when an Australian citizen leaves, because citizens tend to want to return and there is a very big waiting list of would-be returnees now, without making more of them.

    It all boils down to the Australian and New Zealand politicians’ fantasy that they can rid their domains of Covid19 until a saving vaccine (covering all, such a dream) is available. Normal international travel revivals would generally mean some escape of the virus back into the community; it is a very hard thing to contain it. Herd immunity is the only way to escape the grip of endless lockdowns and contact tracings (both very very expensive and not of much use in the end).

  53. dover_beach

    As Lizzie said, his conviction was quashed and Aquittals entered into the record. So referring to Pell as ‘former convicted’ is wrong and defamatory. He should sue.

  54. notafan

    Australians who live permanently overseas, as Cardinal Pell clearly was doing are free to leave.

    Confected outrage time over.

  55. notafan

    Mikakos btw suburban boy has resigned from the parliament and already gone.

    Watching her Twitter account now with mild interest.

  56. Suburban Boy

    notafan:

    I stand corrected. The Mikakos turd has, indeed, flushed herself into the sewer. If only a half-dozen of here erstwhile colleagues would follow.

    Disgraceful. This person has no interest in justice being done. She only wants the people she really doesn’t like to be thought of as something despicable. There are real victims of this crime and she is spitting in their faces.
