The response is simple: close the hospitals.

Then watch the government do a prompt about face.

Time for the churches to man up.

Absolutely, Roger. If the churches got serious, of course the government would fold on this policy and allow religious exemptions. The churches acting as a unitary force should arrive at the Premier’s door, each institution having ready a plan drawn up for the closing of that institution and turning it into ‘a religious retreat’ in order to keep the government informed for ‘forward health planning’.

LPG2 doesn’t want to ruin her nails. LPG1 is too busy reconsidering her life choices at this stage. This isn’t the snowflake utopia she was sold on.

There was footage from Sweden a while ago on the Cat showing two female police officers unable to stop a male offender (they didn’t really try) and some bystanding males rugby tackled him to the ground.

There is a place for females in policing, for they can provide perspective and sympathetic assistance in various crises, but the base of the force should be force – i.e. strong and trained men.

We are no longer in the 1960s, when the Goulburn school closure threat worked.

After the confiscations of private farming land to save the ‘vironment were approved by the High Court, confiscation, without compensation, of the religious hospitals would be hard to stop. At the least, it would involve a series of court cases, and few, if any, state constitutions include “just compensation” clauses.

Another step on the road to fascist dictatorship.

It would be an interesting case; under Pell in his prime. There is this:

Applying the reasonable person test, the CHA network of public hospitals and aged care services would not likely be viewed as ‘government bodies,’ as they are not owned by government. However, these very same public hospitals and aged care services are subject to certain ‘control’ by Commonwealth, State, and Territory governments, raising the prospect of a court potentially finding that they may fall within the proposed exclusion of ‘government bodies’ proposed by the Charities Bill.

Setting aside the legality of such an act, the QLD hospital system is propped up by the privates who are paid to take the overflow of patients from the public system. This stuation is due chiefly to QLD Health’s mismanagement (the greatest threat to the health of Queenslanders is not the ‘rona, it’s the state hospital system). The thought that they could run private hosptials as well as public ones is laughable. For starters, many of the staff would refuse to work for QLD Health.

Cankles erupts…
US faces ‘real battle for democracy’ against far right, says Hillary Clinton
Speaking at a Guardian Live event, the former presidential candidate says the Capitol riot was a ‘terror attack’ that shows a new ‘internal threat’

Hillary Clinton has said that the US was still in a “real battle for our democracy” against pro-Trump forces on the far right, seeking to entrench minority rule and turn back the clock on women’s rights.

At a Guardian Live online event on Monday, Clinton fended off suggestions that the world was now witnessing the twilight of US democracy, but said: “I do believe we are in a struggle for the future of our country”.

The former secretary of state and presidential candidate, speaking from her family home in Chappaqua, New York, said she believed that there was majority support for Joe Biden’s agenda of huge investment in infrastructure and budget support for families.

“But the other side wants to rule by minority,” she told Guardian journalist Jonathan Freedland. “It has a very powerful weapon in the filibuster in the Senate to rule by minority. It wants to change election laws so that it doesn’t lose elections, despite what the will of the people might be.”

Clinton was referring to a raft of state legislation promoted by Republicans aimed at restricting access to the ballot. She also referred to what she called the “crazy, dysfunctional” electoral college system, by which she won the popular vote in 2016 by three million votes but was defeated by Donald Trump by a few tens of thousands of votes in a couple of battleground states, a loss that haunted her long afterwards.

I thought about it every day during the four years of his administration, but I think what is really, most concerning is that he continues to be destructive,” she said.

“The January 6 insurrection at our capitol was a terrorist attack,” Clinton added, noting the parallel with the 9/11 attacks. “We are now much more worried about internal threats, and there are some who say you can’t equate them, having planes flown into the World Trade Center and the terrible loss of life.”

“That’s a horrific external attack, but now we are engaged in a very serious unfortunate but real battle for our democracy against forces, either led by or inspired by Donald Trump.”

Clinton was also asked about the abortion ban passed in Texas at the beginning of month, reversing gains for women’s rights won a generation ago.

“So you ask if I’m surprised or discouraged. I’m neither. I’m not surprised because I’ve been involved in the women’s movement, the civil rights movement,” she said. “I’ve seen the forces that are arrayed against progress when it comes to women’s autonomy, when it comes to the advancement of civil and political and economic rights. I know very well that the other side never gives up.

“They are relentless in their view of what is a properly constructed society, and in that view, white men are at the very top and nobody else is even close.

Ask Bill about white chaps on top love..

The thought that they could run private hosptials as well as public ones is laughable. For starters, many of the staff would refuse to work for QLD Health.

The last sentence is the key. Grabbing the facilities without compensation could be achievable. Staffing them would be a whole new problem. Recruiting the extra clerks to maintain the Q’l’d Health ratio of one administrator to one front line worker, however, would boost liars voter numbers.

Extracts from the Press Council complaint that I just lodged…
***
Please provide the Headline, URL or any other identification which can help us locate the material

Print headline – “Be a Covid hero and get a jab for FNQ”

Online headline and URL – “Why I got the Covid jab, writes Cairns Posteditor Jennifer Spilsbury” -https://www.cairnspost.com.au/news/opinion/be-a-hero-and-get-a-covid-jab-for-far-north-qld-writes-cairns-post-editor-
****
Please state in no more than 400 words the reasons for your complaint and, where possible, state which of the Council’s Standards of Practice you think have been breached.

The opinion editorial includes this line – “While I respect the right for individuals to make up their own mind I appeal for everyone to seek guidance from their GP if in any doubt, or other credible sources and not some ignoramus on social media.”

Re: “The Statement of General Principles” – “Fairness and balance” – “3.Ensure that factual material is presented with reasonable fairness and balance, and that writers’ expressions of opinion are not based onsignificantly inaccurate factual material or omission of key facts.”

The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency has banned our GPsfrom expressing their misgivings about the vaccines -https://www.ahpra.gov.au/News/2021-03-09-vaccination-statement.aspx. “‘There is no place for anti-vaccination messages in professional health practice, and any promotion of anti-vaccination claims including on social media, and advertising may be subject to regulatory action.’”

Our GPs cannot provide advice that counters the government’s COVID-19vaccination strategy. It is misleading to suggest that our trusted GPs can offer their frank and fearless opinion on vaccine safety or efficacy when they cannot.

Editor Spilsbury should have been well aware of that fact as I drew her attention to it on August 18, 2021.

Re: “The Statement of General Principles” – “Privacy and avoidance of harm” – “6. Avoid causing or contributing materially to substantial offence, distress or prejudice, or a substantial risk to health or safety, unless doing so is sufficiently in the public interest.”

It is arguably not in the public interest to mislead readers into an experimental, emergency-use-approval, gene-therapy drug that lacks any long-term safety data given the known injuries and fatalities– regardless of the current government obsession with mass vaccination for a disease 99.9% of Australians can survive without any treatment at all.
***
7.b. If ‘No’, what is the main reason for your complaint?

Failure to correct the misleading statement may cause my fellow Australians to accept the vaccination without knowing that their GP is prohibited from advising them against it, and that may directly cause more people who would have survived COVID-19 infections to be injured by or to die from the vaccinations.

*****
The Australian administrative state seem intent on destroying us

The Editor

Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt notes on his parliamentary and website biographies his long association with the World Economic Forum.

Many Covid-sceptics argue that the WEF is directing Western governments’ lock-stepped, counterintuitive, non-traditional responses to COVID-19 in order to engineer their “Great Reset.”

Let’s consider some of the agencies that ultimately report to Greg Hunt during this largely non-fatal COVID-19 “pandemic.”

Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission – hasn’t done much to protect aged care residents.

Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care – hasn’t done anything to promote COVID-19 cures.

Australian Digital Health Agency – seems intent on stripping us of medical privacy.

Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency – will prosecute doctors who question vaccine efficacy or prescribe known COVID-19 cures.

Australian Institute of Health and Welfare – hasn’t tried to ensure COVID-19 responses are proportional to actual risk.

National Health and Medical Research Council – seems fine with the entire Australian population being compelled into a stage three drug trial.

National Health Funding Body – pays the bills without questioning any of the unprecedented administrative events that are occurring.

National Mental Health Commission – doesn’t seem to care that irrational COVID-19 responses are driving people to suicide.

Office of the Gene Technology Regulator – seems fine with mass vaccinations with experimental gene-therapy drugs.

Therapeutic Goods Administration – banned your GP from curing your COVID-19 with a therapy of cheap, well-known, safe drugs.

Our government, the Australian administrative state, is now working in a top-down coordinated manner to destroy the Australian values that we know and love.

Politicians led by Greg Hunt and ScoMao and the public service, which leech off us at the best of times, now seem intent on destroying us.

Go ahead and try and prove me wrong.

KD, on the LPGs who got a) towelled up and/or b) severely embarrassed by their lack of courage.

I’d seen the footage elsewhere (perhaps from a comment at NewCat) so was prepared for it when PML showed it.
His moralising was so 2019, so sanctimonious, so gut wrenchingly nauseating that I am still feeling mega guilty for turning PML on in the first place.

What was worse? Evidence that Peel’s principles of policing have been destroyed by decades of gutless politicians and power seeking top police brass, or the absolute vomit-inducing display of physical cowardice by LPG #2 who backed away from her colleague who was copping a pounding. Didn’t just back away to regroup and get a weapon – backed away and stayed away.

And PM’s exhortation to leave the police alone was sickening in its pomposity. He has no idea of how plod have caused such a deterioration of their image. At least Aussie Cossak says don’t hit the police because they will arrive in force moments later and you will be hurt.

Troy Bramston doesn’t hold back on that annoying American at the Oz:

Has there ever been a more brazen carpetbagger? Keneally represented the Sydney eastern suburbs seat of Heffron in the NSW parliament (2003-12). Despite repeatedly ruling out a move to federal politics, she ran for the northern suburbs seat of Bennelong at a 2017 by-election. Now, she is running for the western suburbs seat of Fowler. Keneally did not live in Bennelong and she does not live in Fowler.

In 2011, Keneally led NSW Labor to its worst election defeat in 120 years. She lost the Bennelong by-election, a seat Maxine McKew won for Labor in 2007. She lost a bid to lead the NSW Labor Senate ticket. She was never elected to the Senate, only filling a casual vacancy appointed by party agreement via the NSW parliament.

So disliked by her own NSW Right faction and the broader parliamentary party, Keneally could not win a ballot to be a shadow minister. Ed Husic had to stand aside so she could take an allocated NSW Right spot. She could not win a ballot in the national Right faction to be Senate deputy leader, so Don Farrell had to stand aside.

How many figurative pastings does that staggeringly stupid and hideously awful American woman need to cop before she finally decides to stop blighting public life in this country? Latham gave her a masterful pasting on Sky last night as well.

Incidentally, there was a 6.3% swing against labore in Fowler in 2019. Be interesting to see the extent of the swing against labore that Bambi inspires.

Early Nutritional Interventions with Zinc, Selenium and Vitamin D for Raising Anti-Viral Resistance Against Progressive COVID-19

Conclusion: We recommended initiation of adequate supplementation in high-risk areas and/or soon after the time of suspected infection with SARS-CoV-2. Subjects in high-risk groups should have high priority as regards this nutritive adjuvant therapy, which should be started prior to administration of specific and supportive medical measures.

The D and zinc are obvious to most people but I’m not aware of people thinking about selenium. It makes sense to add Se to the supplementation regime but last time I checked it is not possible to buy Se supplements in Aus. Brazil nuts are an alternative source. I’ve been taking Se for years, overseas purchase. I rarely buy supplements in Aus because of atrocious quality controls and price.

I expect most Newscorpse shareholders keep a close eye on the deaths column to check Rupe hasn’t dropped off the twig and indicate it’s time to call their brokers.

Of the sprogs James is the worry; he is as green as a frog. Lachlan less so; his wife Sarah is one to watch in terms of influence over him. I know her first husband and he reckons she is a pretty grounded no bullshit sort of lady. Lachlan is keeping a hands off approach to Fox, which makes sense as it is the most profitable news outlet in the world; and that’s because it’s conservative, despite having some leftie turds on the books. How Lachlan treats Fox after Rupert goes is the big deal.

The 2 eldest girls are removed from the action and seem reasonably conservative.

Which leaves the 2 daughters Rupert had with Deng. Deng is an admirer of Trump so hopefully that will have rubbed off on the girls who at this stage do not not have voting rights which may not eventuate since Rupert and Deng are divorced. That Deng also has close ties with the chunks is a worry.

Fox is a barometer of conservatism in the media. A lot of other companies are springing up, particularly Newsmax. OAN seems to be fading, which is a pity.

The media is probably the leading way the left is beating conservatism. it’s a pity more conservative rich folk have not invested in media. In Australia Gina tried but lost interest. Just imagine if she owned nein instead of fucking soros.

Also…it appears Skanki Markson flew to the US to interview Trump? Why? That interview could have been done by zoom or whatever. Why was she given a pass to go? On her return…where did she quarantine? This is the same Skanki Markson who referred to the Sydney CBD protesters back in July as “selfish”….yet she supported and still supports the BLM protests.

A terrified anonymous eyewitness at the scene said about 40 men arrived in cars on her street, got out and then start attacking each other with weapons.

“They had shovels, metal poles and huge swords and were attacking each other and smashing vehicles,” she said.

“They were very, very angry and yelling at each other in a foreign language that I couldn’t understand.

“This is a quiet neighbourhood I’ve never seen before.

“It was very scary. It was like it was a scene from a movie.”

She said the men involved appeared to be of South Asian appearance.

Meanwhile in sunny Queensland#2:

A 16-year-old boy has been charged after allegedly stabbing a young woman multiple times as she sunbathed on a popular Mackay beach.

Police allege Kaitlin Jones, 23, was sunbaking on Blacks Beach on Monday morning when she was confronted by an unknown male who then stabbed her multiple times in the neck and body.

A 16-year-old boy later handed himself into police, before he was charged with acts intended to cause grievous bodily harm late on Monday night.

As Frolicking alludes to, bands on tour were routinely swarmed by groupies in my experience as a sound and lighting tech in the 1980s.

I was working at a concert of one of the biggest Aussie groups when the tour manager decided before they kicked off, to get some girls. He went out to the backstage loading dock where swarms of them were congregating. The howl that went up as he opened the door and went out was like something from the Colosseum. When he held up his arms and shushed them silence fell. He announced that six girls “to see the concert from the wings and to party with the band afterwards” were required, and this time the crowd response was as per baying wolves.

From the look of the girls they were all about 15. For all I know this is the same today.

Moo loos.

Researchers are toilet-training cows to reduce ammonia emissions caused by their waste (13 Sep)

To potty-train the calves, a process they dubbed MooLoo training, the research team with scientists from FBN, FLI (Germany) and the University of Auckland (New Zealand) worked backward. They started off by rewarding the calves when they urinated in the latrine, and then they allowed the calves to approach the latrines from outside when they needed to urinate.

Over the course of a few weeks, the research team successfully trained 11 out of the 16 calves in the experiment. Remarkably, the calves showed a level of performance comparable to that of children and superior to that of very young children.

My latest audiobook is ‘Friday’ (1982) by Heinlein, written after his peak but just before he began turning incredibly long inane books that didn’t make much sense. Friday and her boss are discussing the decline of civilisations. He foresaw Australia in 2021.

Decaying / Sick cultures show a complex of symptoms:

Particularism. It is a bad sign when the people of a country stop identifying themselves with the country and start identifying with a group. A racial group. Or a religion. Or a language. Anything, as long as it is not the whole population.
Losing Faith. Before a revolution can take place, the population must lose faith in both the police and the courts.
Economic. High taxation, inflation of currency, and the ratio of the productive to those on the public payroll. A country is on the skids when its income and outgo get out of balance and stay that way – even though there are always endless attempts to wish it away by legislation.
Silly-season symptoms. Like a law that says it is illegal to be naked in your own home, if anybody can see in. Another example, it is against the law to refuse credit to a person merely because that person has taken a bankruptcy. Laws like this are unenforceable and cannot be repealed, either. Any law that cannot be enforced weakens all other laws. Treating credit as if it is a civil right.
Violence. Violence, Muggings, Sniping, Arson, Bombing, Terrorism of any sort, Riots are obvious symptoms. But little incidents of violence, pecking away at people day after day, damage a culture even more than riots that flare up and then die down.
Conscription. Conscription, slavery, and arbitrary compulsion of all sorts; imprisonment without bail and without speedy trial round up the package.
Number one symptom of a Dying culture: Rudeness.

A dying culture invariably exhibits personal rudeness. Bad manners. Lack of consideration for others in minor matters. A loss of politeness, of gentle manners, is more significant than a riot. The symptom is especially serious in that an individual displaying it never thinks of it as a sign of ill health or poor breeding, but as proof of his / her strength.

If he picked up 20% of Labor’s vote, quite possible with KKK as their candidate, and engaged with those who are politically disenfranchised (18% informal vote last time), his primary vote would exceed the Liberals, whose preferences would get him over the line.

If women are equal, they have to compete with men in all things.
If they belong in police forces, infantry regiments, fire departments and the cold hard world of politics, then they belong in the same sports leagues as male athletes.
If that means the end of women winning Olympic medals, getting paid to play tennis, soccer etc. SO BE IT.
Then, maybe the over 50% of the population who have come to believe all sorts of stupid things about the equality of humans will be forced to face the truth: the only respect in which men and woman are equal is that they are so in the eyes of God as are all humans are by dint of being human beings.

NK is very polite. Despite being a student of the greatest literary figure ever in the world, Jane Austen, who had as a theme that good manners were a form of morality, I think the left have so undermined the conventions and destroyed prevailing morality that you cannot be polite to them. Too many conservatives think being reasonable and well mannered in discussions (sic) with the scum of the left will enable you to prevail. It won’t. The left laugh at manners, decorum, politeness. Look at how they react when gutless media types apologise for something they did 20 years ago. For the left manners, decorum etc is a weakness and a sign they can continue to attack.

Nor can you wait until the left turn on themselves, which they do. You have to understand that the left is implacable because this is all they do: attack and empower themselves. Nothing else counts or matters to them. They may cloak their disgusting acts and words in moral causes but it’s all bullshit. They hate you and want you dead.

How does this “informed consent” work? I’m not aware of all the reported adverse events following injection of these concoctions, but they are about three or four pages long. If someone went to their GP and requested a vaccine, is the doctor obliged to read out all reported adverse events to properly inform their patient of the associated risks?

Every vaccine injection would then entail a lengthy consultation, is this what is happening?

Should a patient suffer harm as a result of the vaccine, and if their medical practitioner didn’t alert them to the possibility that such harm may result, then the patient did not give his or her INFORMED consent. Could the patient in this case sue the medical practitioner?

It will be most instructive to watch the Cali Recall Election count tomorrow. I am predicting that the outcome will be not known on the day…

There is already a LOT of scuttlebut re improprieties.

And I suspect that they [the DS leftards] may underestimate the amount of steal necessary.

There are signs that the left is on the nose BIG TIME. The chants at the stadium, the disrespect at the 9/11 memorial … and compared to the crowds that greeted DJT wherever he went, the crowds gathered to diss Biden are huge. Here is one form Cali just recently:

The great Jennifer Marohasy has a post at the Spectator about the GBR. I can’t post there so this is my response backing up what Jennifer has said:

There has been NO increase in sea temperature around the GBR and into the Pacific ocean around the East coast of Australia as a comprehensive BOM study shows.

As Jennifer points out there was NO GBR until a few thousand years ago: see Sahul Time maps:

Recent studies show the main impact on the GBR is FALLING sea levels:

The GBR is part of the propaganda of alarmism. As with other parts of alarmism there are no facts in that propaganda.

I am guessing that these will be very interesting questions in the future. Of course – I’m saying that in hope … hope that the totalitarian gov’ts allow that!

We are no longer in the 1960s, when the Goulburn school closure threat worked.
After the confiscations of private farming land to save the ‘vironment were approved by the High Court, confiscation, without compensation, of the religious hospitals would be hard to stop. At the least, it would involve a series of court cases, and few, if any, state constitutions include “just compensation” clauses.

The first paragraph was the most significant – the States can do whatever they want, it’s the Feds who are hamstrung by the law and our Constitution. (Yeah – Our Constitution – what a damn laugh.)

Just following on from my previous comments about why conservatives are getting beat – basically because they still think there are rules – here are a number of short essays at the American Greatness site all dealing with this failure of tactics by conservatism against communism and the left:

https://amgreatness.com/2021/07/13/five-years-of-american-greatness-pointing-toward-the-future/

At one level the right has fought so hard, in wars and by just working and supporting the Western infrastructure that a combination of entitlement and reliance on that social structure has led to ennui and laziness. The left are nothing if not energetic. The right has contented itself with some speeches, some articles and letters to the editor while the left through violence, subversion, intimidation and Gramscism, has captured the very institutions the right expects to protect them. Those institutions are now owned by the left and being polite won’t get them back.

You mean he came here?

It stands to reason that he’d try again eventually.

Bird is rat-cunning and revels in the grief and anger he causes. He’s actually worse than Grigory. Because Grigory, for all his nastiness, will actually pull his head in when called out forcefully enough. Bird just persists with ever-escalating calumny until he is smashed back into Timeout Corner.

He hates not having a platform (despite having his own blog, which has seen no traffic since 2016), so feels compelled to come and wreck ours. I’ve no idea why, as he has admitted his beef was with Sinclair.

Sinc has no influence or directive power over the running of any Cat, so that excuse is gone.

At the same time, one Army Reserve Platoon commander noted that, of his whole platoon, there were five issue rain jackets……

I understood the RODUM system was supposed to stop these sorts of things happening.
Has the issue been sorted out?
It really does show the contempt for the common soldiery that the system fails to fix such an important issue.
I suppose we can always buy some from the Chinese.

Bruce of Newcastle:

The government had given a dozen contradictory or unclear statements on the use of domestic vaccine passports in the past ten months since Vaccine Minister Nadhim Zahawi first mentioned that they could become a part of Britons’ everyday life, to which Michael Gove, later to become the head of a review on vaccine passports, had told media the following day: “I certainly am not planning to introduce any vaccine passports and I don’t know anyone else in Government [who is].”

The eight classifications of coercive interrogation are:-
(a) Isolation
(b) Monopolization of attention
(c) Induced debilitation and exhaustion
(d) Cultivation of anxiety and despair
(e) Alternating punishments and rewards
(f) Demonstrating omniscience and omnipotence of captor
(g) Degradation
(h) Enforcing trivial and absurd demands
Source: “Communist interrogation methods.“
Which one is being used?
