    There needs to be a reckoning regarding those (not just Tasmania) who wanted to introduce the laws gagging sex abuse victims.
    Let’s be clear.
    These are shield laws, protecting peddo’s.

    Victoria has come up with the same.
    Even if an adult wants to disclose the abuse they suffered as a child, they couldn’t do it.
    Even the family of an adult rape-murder victim could be gagged.
    Weird.

    I see that Red Kezza is refusing his Australia Day honour because he thinks Margaret Court is a poo-bum.

    I suspect what really riled him is that she is getting the highest honour (AC) whereas he was only deemed worthy of a second tier AO.

    Don’t these people know who he is?

  6. Lazlo says:

    Yes. That one’s been kept very quiet. Hairy, as an international researcher of some experience, was onto it very fast once he’d checked the funding. Ballarat implicated too.

    It was actually a CSIRO Vet Science Lab in Geelong. They have a long track record of collaborating with WIV on Gain of Function virus research (engineering viruses), evidenced by their joint publications in research journals. Their publications boast about making viruses more transmissible and/or virulent in the name of researching vaccines.

    This very dangerous research was banned under Obama, but reinstated by HIH under Fauci’s leadership.

    This virus clearly escaped from WIV. It has all happened in plain sight. Like so much the left gets away with.

    He was just revisiting the old parliamentary tradition of the Norse where any man could have his say in the ‘Thing’, the basic speakers’ meeting. We visited the site of the main ‘Thing’ in Iceland, on the fissure of the earth that cuts Iceland in two. Odin’s territory.

    The oldest parliamentary ‘Thing’ is now in the Isle of Man, the Tynwald. It is a hill composed of earth clods brought regularly there by the relevant groups meeting.

    Ha, ha.
    I guess that is where I am too.
    Especially since I turned Foxtel off (although I think it might be on FTA somewhere).
    The thought of AJ five days a week wouldn’t get me back to Foxtel either.

    Heading for my book. King Coel will have to wait till after Straya Day now.
    Just watched Lauren Southern on PML interviewing some denizens of Newtown about Invasion Day.
    lol. She offered a colourful ‘ticket’ back to Europe for those who wanted to go. No-one took her up on it, even those very few who were for ‘invasion’. Actually, most people she talked to were pretty hot to trot for Aussie BBQ day. It’s a beat up, in other words. No-one wants it to change, not even in trendy Newtown.

    Which of you thought I didn’t ‘get’ this bloke’s schtick?
    He isn’t even a useful idiot.
    Just an idiot.
    Here he is arguing with a Trot that the Trot should engage with a Boogaloo boy.
    The Trotskyist rightly points out that as the left is Internationalist and wants to abolish the nation state and the right believes in the nation state, the two have completely conflicting aims: that’s political reality.
    This Dore guy really believes all the soppy bullshit communists come up with to justify power.
    He really believes it!
    At least the Trot knows what it’s about: get power by any means, then crush your enemies both to the left and right.
    This is why the current mess is not good. Not good at all. The commies are the more realistic about gaining power. If the USA further disintegrates into the establishment v. radicals of various strains, it’s the hardcore communists who have the ability to come out on top.
    They are always in a minority, but always more realistic in the later stages of revolution: they close the deals that matter.

    Once upon a time it might have been a thing to distance yourself from idiots in the same space to keep your credibility, but the progressives have embraced mental disease such that even the loopiest fruit loop from the right looks like a middle aged lady librarian by comparison, and anyway, they are in the middle of the process of silencing all of us anyway.

    IMHO those Q people made the silencing process a whole lot easier by rushing into a Capitol building without being even slightly suspicious about cooperative police standing around waving them through.

    I don’t mind harmless nutters, or eccentrics if you like … but falling for something that was planned by the bad guys is not a good look. What’s worse is they just keep lapping it up … forever!

    If the establishment doesn’t come up with some plausible bullshit to address the problems of covid, wealth gap, crumbling society, institutional capture by radical ideologues, deep structural unemployment and increasing homelessness, then it’s obvious to everyone at this point that the centre will not hold: the USA experiencing a communist revolution is no longer an absurd idea.

All done ‘by the book’.

    This virus was cultivated in the WIV Laboratory to increase its transmissibility. Many scientists, such as Petrovski from Flinders attest to this.

    Seems a complicated way at giving violent people more money

    Last year Indianapolis’ homicide total jumped to 245 violent deaths, a 40% increase over the year before, and if the first three weeks of 2021 are any indication, that rate has not slowed.

    The City is betting $400,000 of its 2021 community crime prevention grant money on an aggressive and admittedly “dangerous” program to send so-called Interrupters into the homes of the most violent people in Indianapolis in an attempt to convince them to not retaliate in the wake of murders or shootings and perhaps even give up their guns and their violent lifestyles.

    “We have kind of recruited some of the people that we know who are in the business and have the nerve because this is dangerous work and so we sometimes don’t know what we’re walking into, so these guys have stepped up to do that,” said Majors. “They have lived similar lives. They either used to be gang members or used to be drug dealers or used to be just in the life of violence themselves, went and served time and came back and have now adjusted their thinking to want to help those to be what they wish they had when they were going through those lifestyles to be able to transform.”

    Six Interrupters, ex-felons or those familiar with violent crime, have been hired by the Indy Public Safety Foundation, the City’s partner in the project, to hit the streets both before and after violence goes down in an attempt to cool tempers and talk sense, sometimes greasing the conversation with cash, while trying to stem the flow of bloodshed.

    This will result in a secondary epidemic of burnouts and stress-related absenteeism in the latter half of 2020

    The 107-page complaint and demand for a jury trial claimed Mr Giuliani and his allies manufactured and disseminated the “Big Lie”, which “deceived millions of people into thinking that Dominion had stolen their votes and fixed the election.”

    Don’t be too concerned. A couple of scared old farts having to lie about what I said, having to make shit up and repeat it, having to put MV’s words in my mouth (apparently I have said something about today being a day when I said no such thing) make them look like the gooses they are.
    They have to do it, because they’ve been proven wrong and can’t stand it.
    Especially from a truckie.
    (I have not been just a “truckie” all my life, far from it, but I push that image to get up people’s noses, and even worked in a joint defence facility called Pine Gap for some years….quite an insight)
    They’re gutless sneerers.
    I was right about Credlin.
    She achieved nothing, and the point I made has been born out to be correct.
    You don’t go after communists when you half agree with their tyranny and expect to win.
    Remember, she big mouthed and told everyone how she wasn’t “going away” and that she’ll never give up.

    She’s given up.
    Why?
    Because she lacks the integrity of true right wing values and conviction.
    That’s what I was pointing out. She is not what she claims to be.
    People should have been able to see that a mile away. Sticks out like dog’s balls.
    She is a political game player from a back ground of agrarian socialists who like to think they are conservative.
    If she hadn’t put herself out there as being the great fighter for the right when she wouldn’t know right wing values if she fell over them, she wouldn’t have made herself out to be the joke she now obviously is.

    The UN Human Rights Council is a cesspool of political bias that makes a mockery of human rights. If Biden rejoins the council whose membership includes dictatorial regimes & some of the world’s worst human rights violators, it will fly in the face of our fight for human rights.

    People aren’t stupid here, they can see that, but somehow we live in a world where people care about pixels on a computer screen as if it is a concern.
    I don’t.
    Not here to make friends with jerks.
    Don’t mind making them with good people.
    But I’m not here to be friends with everyone.
    I’m here nowadays , and I’m starting to believe I am wrong, because I believed this site to be where right wingers hang out and I could gauge where they were up to in understanding what is going on around them, that I could gauge where people are up to on this coup d’etat.
    This blog has fallen behind many others , now, when it counts.
    And Catallaxy used to be miles ahead and predicting things way before they happened.
    Fear and overwhelming propaganda aimed directly at the demographic here, has had a massive affect, as we witnessed with the likes of Notafan.
    Now it is behind, and that in part is due to people like Frank who care deeply about what other pixels think of his pixels, and is a piss in his pants denialist, sneering away at others for being conspiracy theorists when the facts are what we present is straight from the enemy’s mouth and after a year we can see it all being put in place, but these guys, when their nation needs them the most, turn on the cricket and help the ratings and therefore the money made by the media corporates pushing the propaganda.
    Believe me, Mark, at this point in time, you don’t need enemies when your friends are people like Frank.

    It would appear that once again I have missed out in the Australia Day honours list. Once. Again.

    It’s okay though in some respects, because there are aspiring rappers, who have risen to rank of alleged rappers like this bloke who made the grade (NT News):

    ‘DANZAL Baker, known onstage as Baker Boy, has been awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia for his service to the performing arts as a musician and a singer.

    ‘However, he won’t be celebrating the honour today, declining media opportunities and releasing a statement indicating he would instead be in mourning of Invasion Day connotations surrounding Australia Day.

    ‘“I’m grateful for this recognition, and look forward to being able to share and celebrate it but I do not wish to comment any further at this stage as I am in mourning for Invasion Day,” the statement read.

    ‘“I look forward to a time where we celebrate our country, our people and their achievements on a different day out of respect for all of my First Nations brothers and sisters.”’

    But he’s keeping the gong, which puts him a step above Red Kerry.

  101. Knuckle Dragger says:

    Two epistles, straight off the bat, followed by a bit of sniping and then gorn.

    St. Ruth, as I’ve repeatedly said you make SOME good points, you really do – but it’s buried in the bullshit and the people you associate with who are not only squarely in taxi-driver grade nutter territory, but who continue to associate themselves with you. And you let this run.

    ‘I believed this site to be where right wingers hang out and I could gauge where they were up to in understanding what is going on around them, that I could gauge where people are up to on this coup d’etat.’

You’ve walked back every Great Prediction of your own, never mind Faulty’s, you were all for armed punch-ons ‘when we have a chance of winning’ until you decided that – according to your interpretation of where the people ‘were up to in understanding’ – they weren’t going for it.

    And then you walked it back. Along with the other stuff. I fucking loathe Credlin, but you’ve made me a fan of hers just by your slagging off that her questions didn’t follow those you sent her in your letters. And going on about about it for weeks like a jilted teenage girl.

    See this? It’s this condescending, pompous shit that jacks people up. Whether ‘the people’ are up to the St. Ruth level of requisite understanding.

    Stiff shit.
    People who I never talked down to lost their minds with this crap, and if you think enough of your fellow countrymen you’ll do what you can to bring them back, and tip toe-ing around it wasn’t going to do it.
    Many here needed a reality smack in the mouth…….I give you Notafan as an example.
    Was she going to come around without a does of hard hitting smelling salts?
    She hasn’t even got there yet.
    You speak as if everyone else was meak and mild and polite and not getting stuck into old “playing gigs you selfish bastard and you’ll kill my nanna”
    So enough of the victimhood, please. It doesn’t wash. People give it hard here and I’m not the only one.
    Many here, in my view, have had a disgraceful reaction to this coup d’etat and I don’t back away from talking down to them, as they don’t with me.

    You’ve walked back every Great Prediction of your own,

    That is a straight out lie, and only one have I walked back, which I have admitted to, which was in regards to the supply chain.

    Everything else I have said I stand by and do to this day.

    never mind Faulty’s, you were all for armed punch-ons

    Another complete lie.
    But it suits your narrative.
    Calling you a liar, is not me walking things back, it is calling you a liar.
    Big difference.
    This is you putting MV’s comments in my mouth.
    For the hundredth time, I was asked after MV’s comments whether I agreed to this coming to violent conflict, which I agreed with and still do, and if you look at the protests in Melbourne , already has… I stand by my comments 100%.

    ‘when we have a chance of winning’ until you decided that – according to your interpretation of where the people ‘were up to in understanding’ – they weren’t going for it.

    No good fighting against this when everyone wants this, as many here did…….you can deny it all you want, but back at the start people on this very blog were calling for the place to be shut down.
    You can be a thick dishonest bastard if you like and conflate fighting with violence, but in stating we cannot fight until people want to fight, that wasn’t in reference to violence. You guys decided that’s what I meant. But you are fucking liars and spinners.

    So not walking back there either.

    And then you walked it back. Along with the other stuff. I fucking loathe Credlin, but you’ve made me a fan of hers just by your slagging off that her questions didn’t follow those you sent her in your letters. And going on about about it for weeks like a jilted teenage girl.

    No.
    I made a comment that she wasn’t going to get anywhere and that she’s doing it wrong.
    I was then pounced on by her fanclub if you remember, by one in particular who I can’t remember now as he doesn’t post here often anymore, with the “at least she is doing something line” and was up me for the rent.
    So in fighting back, you clowns don’t like it.

    Well guess what , she achieved not only nothing, but reinforced the lie that Andrews killed people therefore reinforcing the propaganda of the deadly killing power of the socialist sniffles.
    Overall she did harm, not good.
    So, unfortunately, I’m correct again.

    Stop telling people what to do. They’ve had enough of it recently, and don’t need it from Mr. ‘I have done enough’ from his couch.

    Never told anyone what to do, however translating that comment means……I have ignored the pile ons and attacks of the rest of many on catallaxy, as we are all angelic Kumbaya peace nicks who never say a cross word to anyone, are never sarcastic and full of abuse, just innocently sitting here being attacked by Struth.
    Spare me your pathetic drivel.

    For example.
    If you actually cared for the likes of notafan you would have got stuck into her as well.

    A few years back, the taxpayer funded O’Brien’s trip to London to interview the late Clive James. O’Brien was his usual servile self, but James, not, so far as I could tell, intentionally, made him look dull and ordinary.

    What was interesting about that interview was O’Brien’s extraordinary appearance in his older age. With his bloated cheeks, pencil-thin neck and huge swag gut, he looked like someone going to a fancy dress party as ‘Mr Squiggle’ .

    Naturally, the media pictures of him that accompany his current search for relevance are mostly ‘ from the archives’.

    In any case. the US judiciary’s blanket refusal to hear evidence of cheating by their friends in the
    Democratic Party in the November election green-lights massive vote fraud in every election, state and federal, for the foreseeable future.

    The USA is now a one-party banana republic (controlled by the Chinese Communist Party) in which Republicans who take on the swamp can never win key offices like the presidency because the result of all elections will be pre-determined by state Democratic Party officials shipping in the necessary number of ballots after the polls close to ensure Republicans can’t win.

    You’ve never distanced yourself from this nuttery. Ever. Except to go ‘oh but when we have a chance of winning.’

    You’re a fence-sitter. That’s all.

    ‘I don’t back away from talking down to them’

    And yet you scream and bitch when people quite rightly take the piss out of your pompous, omnipotent ‘I’m just a Stubbies-wearing battered hat-having steely-eyed genuine Aussie type looking over the top stockyard rail’ schtick.

    ‘we cannot fight until people want to fight, that wasn’t in reference to violence.’

    Liability Bob-grade dissembling. After you were taken to task on it, and discovering some of ‘the people’ weren’t on board. And then there’s this:

    ‘So enough of the victimhood, please. It doesn’t wash’ – followed by ‘I have ignored the pile ons and attacks of the rest of many on catallaxy’. Alinsky.

    All you’re doing now is justifying your very public hitching you wagon to a star – that star being a pair of world class nuffies. You do know this. Right?

    Opinion
    Dark Discovery: European mindset of superiority continues today
    By Bruce Pascoe
    January 25, 2021 — 11.55pm

    What was happening in the European mind when they built ships big enough to cross oceans?

    The spread of Christianity, bringing light to the dark places? Or gold? Enough gold to gild a king’s palace or a priest’s church.

    After Columbus and his journey to the Americas, Pope Alexander VI provided the answer in his papal bull of 1493, The Doctrine of Discovery, which deemed that Christians could lay claim to the territory of other nations on the grounds that the Indigenes did not know the name Jesus Christ. If they resisted the right of this most reasonable test, they could be justifiably killed.
    Plunder and murder

    European thought and spiritual imagination were declared superior to all others. There may have been humanitarian moves afoot in England but the result was the same, robbery under arms. So, the plunder began. And the murder. The invasions of Africa, North and South America and Asia were vicious and contemptuous.

    Vasco da Gama was so confident of his greater virtue that he burned alive his Muslim captives, peering through the porthole to see the deed accomplished. As affirmation of this greater spirituality, he cut off the ears of their priest and sewed on the ears of a dog in their place. Not much good for the dog either but a vivid demonstration of the superior Christian spirit.

    By the time the Christians reached Australia, the colonial methods were refined to a ruthless edge. Backed by both the Church and Crown, invaders felt impervious to the claims of the Indigenous population. They refused to acknowledge the rights to land and even to their humanity.

    ‘Explorers’ and ‘pioneers’ saw and recorded vast croplands of tubers and grasses. They reported dams and wells, villages and roads but the pope’s bull emboldened them in the certainty that they could take anyone’s land. And life.

    Their confidence that any un-Christian abomination would be smiled on by the church and indulged by both the state and courts allowed explorer and pastoralist Angus McMillan to kill hundreds of Aborigines in Gippsland. Of course, there were many others involved in massacres all over Australia and these massacres are well documented, but even today, some Australians confect ways of denial.

    That denial produces confidence in today’s law to turn a blind eye to deaths in custody, to people being shot in their homes in Yuendumu, to the explosion of the world’s oldest art and for the shares of the nationally respected perpetrating company to rise.

    The rest of the world understands Australian theft and murder, mainly because of their participation in similar acts, but in Australia, we pretend bemusement or outright hostility to the mere suggestion.
    God’s walk-out

    And we are such fair-go, good-bloke larrikins that we become furious when a sportsman accuses others of racism. My father was aghast and demoralised when a football trainer refused to massage the legs of a black footballer. Dad was a Christian but he felt that God had deliberately walked out of that room.
    We become furious when a sportsman accuses others of racism.

    This attitude to Aboriginal Australians continues today and pervades the assumptions of every institution.

    While the public sentiment and colloquial banter maintain that Aborigines did nothing with the land and are just lucky that Europeans turned up, then that sentiment seeps subliminally into every school, every church, every court and every employment agency.

    We have said sorry as a nation; we have urged our population to avoid racist talk, but it is not yet a thread in our national cloth. The loom is ready to weave a new one but the weaver has not been taught the pattern and in many cases, does not believe the thread exists.

    Doesn’t our democracy look efficient when you compare it to the COVID-19 response in the rest of the world? Don’t we look peaceable when you look at the Speaker’s chair in our Parliament and see there no vandal wearing horns?

    Yes, we do many things well but we are selective and most of all, we are selective about what we believe about the entry of Europeans into this continent and why they entered.

    Bruce Pascoe is a Yuin, Bunurong and Tasmanian man and two of his recent books are Dark Emu and Loving Country.

    NFA set up the furniture shop and although we all don’t agree on everything, good on him for doing it. Doing something, would you not agree?
    And when Sinclair shut this blog down, people could go there.
    It was meant as a back up, as NFA explained to me.
    I went there to get away from the denialism that was here for much of last year, which was important for me to do for my sanity.

    Nick, you’re relatively new here, and there is a history that many people know regarding myself and MV.

    So from now on, I will not take kindly to people putting other people’s words in my mouth and claiming I said them.
    There is still some laws that can be upheld.
    People holding me to account for my own words is fair enough.
    You start putting me in with p…e..d.os and fringe types there may be consequences.
    You quote me on what I have said from now on, and only what I have said.
    This comment above is actionable.

  207. Roger says:

    How brilliant has the lamb marketing board been persuading a nation of steak eaters that lamb is the meat for their national day?

    Ah…you must be a young’un, ML.

    Lamb was often on the table growing up – several times a week as chops, stew or roast on Sunday.

    Beef was eaten as mince or corned more often than a cut of steak as I recall.

    And in those pre-battery farm days a roasted chicken was reserved for special occasions.

    So they’re building on a solid tradition, but it is very clever marketing, no doubt.

  208. dover_beach says:

    Margaret Court’s award made it to the end. I assumed it would be withdrawn.

    The Left in this country speaks through the ABC. It marks whatever it wants to be targeted by the commentariat, twittermob, and the like. It always begins the two-minutes of hate which is now a 24-hr calumny we call a news cycle. My wife bumped into a neighbor who is a regular viewer of the ABC and you could already determine what her talking points were knowing just this: impeachment, Court, and ‘Invasion Day’.

    Saint Jude,

    As a young man, Danny Thomas had a simple goal: to entertain people and be successful enough at it to provide for his wife and family. But work wasn’t easy to come by.

    Danny’s shrine to St. Jude Thaddeus was originally to be a general children’s hospital located some where in the south. Danny’s mentor, Cardinal Samuel Stritch, recommended he look to Memphis, Tennessee, the cardinal’s hometown.

    I love this by Margaret because whilst I have no doubt she is sincere about “praying for Andrews” and from what I know of her she doesn’t have a mean or spiteful bone in her body, I just love the fact that she’s talking about such things as “praying” for her critics….because she’s rubbing the noses of Andrews and all the rest of the progressive left Marxist scum in their own shit.
