    My great – uncle served in the “unnecessary campaigns” of 1944/45 in New Guinea. He wrote in his diary of dire threats of disciplinary action, direct from the divisional commander, should any man in the division suffer malaria. One of the first casualties, from malaria, in the division, was said divisional commander…

    It is just such a pity that he is in Palmer’s party. Without Big Clive’s stink, I think he would get a lot more traction. [I know that Clive probably bankrolls the show and that massive leg up… but by the same token, he who controls the purse strings ultimately controls the show].

  3. Perhaps the Kochie make-up thing isn’t about the vaxx at all.

    I noticed, before I switched off, that he was progressively looking more like a death’s head with each passing day. I wonder if one of the artistes has been having a little fun at his expense and he’s twigged?

    Obviously he doesn’t require a hairdresser.

    There is a strong negative correlation between Kochie’s wokeness and Port Powers onfield performance.

    It’s fun how this has turned out. Pauline’s mob have traction because she has balls. Earned in spades. Craig’s mob has traction because he has money, which has been extracted from unhappy Chinks by Clive. Neither have traction because of policies because Aussies are idiots. For which I blame the MSM and their endless drip drip of green-prog pap.

    Yah…

    They are in the hands (currently) of the large corporations etc. Even the Unions don’t really get a look in with Labour any more. And that is why the uniparty is not about improving the wellbeing / prosperity of the voter, but enriching Colesworths, Banks, etc and it appears ever more obvious, Big Pharma.

    This is my point though with Clive. Whilst LDP and Hansen’s party are prob mostly funded by the members, Craig bragged that they have a massive war chest. If it is Clive’s money – then the Party will ultimately be hostage to his whims (and not the members / voters).

    The smaller parties MUST co-ordinate between each other [it’s not collusion in politics – it’s exchanging preferences :)] and more importantly, education their supporters that they – if they want change – must preference the Hansen’s, Clives, Leyonhjelms ABOVE the uniparty … no matter how distasteful that may be.

    This is critical as when knocked out the preferences remain live and not snagged by the Uniparty.

  15. Students taught to check their privilege and ‘deconstruct’ the Australian flag

    Federal Education Minister Alan Tudge says students should be taught to defend symbols of their country, not tear them down, after controversial new lessons about the flag.

    By James Morrow in The Daily Telegraph

    State and federal education ministers have slammed divisive third-party learning plans promoted by the NSW Department of Education in the name of anti-racism, saying students should be taught to “defend our key institutions and symbols, rather than trying to destroy them”.

    The learning plans were developed by third parties and linked to from the department’s website, though some of the links vanished last week as part of what the department called a website upgrade.

    Among other things, the lessons called on students to “deconstruct” symbols of Australia including the flag, Australia Day and the national anthem.

    In the flag exercise, developed by a group called “Cool Australia” and using a documentary about footballer Adam Goodes as a jumping off point, students are asked to “examine” the Australian flag and analyse it to see “who is included” and “who is excluded or not visible”.

    The worksheet also asks students to summarise criticisms and defences of Australia Day as part of a project of “deconstructing symbols of Australia”, and points to a number of resources, almost all of them in favour of changing the date.

    These include a Buzzfeed video titled Aboriginal people respond to Australia Day, links to ABC articles urging that the national day be changed, and an article on the website of The Ethics Centre that states “the date will change” as a matter of fact, adding, “the only reasons … for opposition to changing the date is white privilege, or perhaps even racism”.

    An accompanying teachers’ guide suggests that to be marked correct, students should say that it “Erases Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander sovereignty and custodianship of land”, and “Celebrates colonisation and erases the colonisers’ violent history towards Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples”.

    While there are no firm figures as to how many schools use the resource, the teachers’ website Education Matters claims “hundreds” of schools use the Goodes documentary in their classrooms.

    Federal Education Minister Alan Tudge said the curriculum should “focus on how to defend our key institutions and symbols, rather than trying to destroy them”.

    “Our flag represents the greatest country on Earth – one which 100,000 have died defending. It ought to be respected, not torn down,” he said.

    NSW Education Minister Sarah Mitchell agreed, saying students “do not need incendiary external resources pushed into the classroom from third parties”.

    Bella d’Abrera, director of the Foundations of Western Civilisation Program at the Institute of Public Affairs, was similarly scathing.

    “The state government has no place actively promoting radical race theory to Australian children, who will grow up believing that Australia is irredeemably racist,” she said.

    Excellent.

    It’s got a big star and some smaller ones. The big star is called the Sun, and it defines climate on Earth. It caused most of the warming last century, not CO2. The smaller ones can be used to work out where you need to go: just extrapolate them to the line bisecting the Centaurs and you know where south is.

    The lines in the flag give our heritage. The thing in the upper left corner is the combination of the English flag, the Scots flag and the Irish saltire. Given that many if not most Aussies are derived from Poms, Scots and Paddies that is excellent. I comprise the full set!

    Sadly what they mean by deconstructing the Australian flag isn’t likely to be what I regard as deconstructing it.

  19. Or this, perhaps:

    Our flag bears the stars that blaze at night
    In our southern sky of blue
    And that little old flag in the corner
    That’s part of our heritage too,
    It’s for the English, the Scots and the Irish
    Who were sent to the end of the earth
    The rogues and the schemers and dreamers
    Who gave our Australia its birth.

    And you who are shouting to change it
    You don’t seem to understand
    It’s the flag of our laws and language
    Not the flag of a far away land
    There are plenty of people who’ll tell you
    How when Europe was plunged into night
    The little old flag in the corner
    Was their symbol of freedom and light.
    It don’t mean we owe our allegiance
    To a forgotten imperial dream
    We’ve the stars to show where we’re going
    And the old flag to show where we’ve been
    It’s only an old piece of bunting
    It’s only an old coloured rag
    But there are thousands who died for its honour
    And fell in defence of our flag.

    Not woke enough I suppose.

  28. It’s official: Clive Palmer pays $20m for neighbouring ‘titanium’ house

    Locally it has been dubbed the “titanium house”, likely for the extensive German engineering, which includes a bulletproof bedroom and steel-spine staircase, imported from Italy.

    It should be fat food proof.

    The purchase gives Mr Palmer a string of nine consecutive blocks along the Sovereign Islands’ promontory, from No. 1-5 through to No. 13-17, and will make him the owner of the largest residential landholding on the Gold Coast.

    Smart, GC real estate prices keep on climbing. Southerners are buying up big.

    Gold Coast house prices remained steady with 2.2 per cent growth during July, pushing it up 7.3 per cent for the recent quarter and 25.7 per cent for the year to date. The current median value for dwellings is $695,000 which is $16,000 higher than just a month ago.

    Let me also add the following, which will highlight why I never had much time for your comments (leaving aside the dishonesty and all the other crap, such as pubbling, outbacking and Mick Dundeeing).

    Let me continue.

    Your pal made an obviously stupid comment about flags. You decided to intervene like you often do when I’m beating the Rones around the ears for being the classic underachiever at everything.

    To Summarize:

    1. The Rones made a silly about the Aboriginal flag inferring that lots of people would be angered if someone burned their (aboriginal) flag.

    2. I responded that if they did go nuts about their flag being burnt they are clearly demonstrating fragility whereas as most other Australians are singularly robust.

    You responded all this is in your typical stupid, irrelevant style. Driller, explain to the readership, how the hell does the lived experience even enter in this discussion, you nimrod?

    West Australian Premier Mark McGowan will introduce strict new rules before the end of the year that mean those not vaccinated against Covid-19 will not be able to attend concerts, eat in restaurants and watch live sport from the stands.

    The measures could extend to flights — both domestic and international, the Premier said Monday.

    “It will be either late this year or sometime earlier next year,” Mr McGowan said.

    “I can’t put a precise date on it, where we will have those measures in place.”

    He said all West Australians will have the “opportunity to get vaccinated” before the measures are introduced.

    It follows scathing comments from the Premier towards Prime Minister Scott Morrison who he accused of abandoning the national plan of opening up at 80 per cent vaccination coverage to reopen instead when it suits NSW.

  52. Footage on the noos this morning.

    A couple of ladeeee policey girls (LPGs) from NSW encounter Mr X on the street. The LPGs will never make the Australian chick basketball team, but that’s all right because Mr X also appears to be a midget.

    Mr X is delivering some knees to the midsection of LPG 1, MMA-style (without the usual effect), while LPG 2 stands back and watches from ten or twelve feet away. Presumably at this point, LPG 2 is resorting to screeching as a defensive mechanism as no equipment is being used against Mr X, let alone any lefts or rights.

    Mr X then runs away, and the viewer is then informed that he is pinched around the corner and down a bit. I will make the assumption that bloke cops over 5 foot 3 completed this task. Mr X then apparently plays up like a secondhand lawn mower at the station and is binned.

    Someone from the brass then does a presser, where he intones ‘no police officer expects this when they go to work’.

    Well if they don’t, they fucking should because like it or not that’s part of the job. If you are not prepared to a) wear the occasional decent smack in the chops while removing a piece of shit from normal people, and b) convincingly win that particular melee, then you can go and find another line of work where others won’t have to continually do your job for you.

    Two scenarios – one, Mr X is a proper crook and the LPGs wanted to arrest a violent piece of shit, which is their job and they should expect to be belted while doing it.

    Two, Mr X was not wearing a mask or something and was double-covid-Karened by the LPGs, in which case they should also expect to be belted while doing it.

  57. Faith-based hospitals will not be able to deny entry to outside ­doctors to help terminally ill ­patients die after the Queensland government rejected pleas by the churches for institutional protection from the widest voluntary assisted dying law to go before an Australian parliament.

    The legislation leaves the private, church-backed institutions that provide more than a quarter of all hospital beds in Queensland powerless to intervene if a patient who qualifies for VAD and is too ill to be moved elsewhere insists on being assessed and potentially dosed with death-dealing drugs on the premises.

    The bill approved on Monday by state cabinet notionally gives individual health workers and institutions the capacity to opt out of the assisted dying scheme – except in cases when it would cause unnecessary suffering to transfer the ­patient concerned to another centre, a loophole that has been seized on by church leaders to argue they will be roped into the program.

    Some ministers at Monday’s cabinet discussion wanted the churches’ push for a right of conscientious objection addres­sed. Instead, cabinet agreed the legislation would remain intact and be augmented by clinical guidelines setting out how the VAD was to interact with the faith-based hospital and care sector.

    Annastacia Palaszczuk’s government resisted pressure to follow the lead of South Australia and include an all-encompassing right of institutional conscientious objection giving faith-aligned hospitals, hospices and aged-care homes legal standing to refuse entry to anyone associated with VAD.

    The numbers in the single-chamber Queensland parliament, where the government commands a five-seat majority, mean the legislation to be debated from Tuesday will pass the conscience vote Ms Palaszczuk has called.

    Not one Labor MP has signalled an intention to vote no, while the two Green MPs and Noosa independent Sandy Bolton support VAD. Three Gold Coast Liberal National Party parliamentarians – Michael Hart, Sam O’Connor and Rob Molhoek – have said they supported assisted dying, which would easily offset potential Labor waverers such as Logan MP Linus Power, who has expressed reservations about the measure.

    LNP leader David Crisafulli is yet to declare his position, but his deputy and legal affairs spokesman, David Janetzki, is set to move amendments to the bill, granting institutions the capacity to conscientiously object.

    Catholic Health Australia’s mission director, Rebecca Burdick Davies, said she was disappointed that a “flawed bill” had been retained after several rounds of talks with Deputy Premier Steven Miles, who had carriage of it for the government.

    “He’s well aware of the shortcomings of this bill which purport to offer choice but in fact deny it. Guidelines will always fall short of legislation,” Ms Burdick Davies said on Monday.

    St Vincent’s Health Australia, a Catholic provider that runs private hospitals at Kangaroo Point and Chermside in Brisbane, last month raised concern about staff being forced to witness voluntary assisted dying if the bill stood.

    “If passed in its current form, doctors and nurse practitioners will be able to enter Queensland hospitals – unaccredited by the hospital, unannounced, without permission – and assist patients in their premature death,” chief executive Toby Hall has warned.

    In a second-reading speech to be delivered on Tuesday to state parliament, Mr Miles will say the rules “specifically addresses” each of the issues raised by church leaders including Catholic Archbishop of Brisbane Mark Coleridge. These would provide “further comfort to them”, Mr Miles will tell the house.

    The guidelines are yet to be ­finalised, but would require VAD doctors to inform private hospitals they were visiting and consult with in-house medical staff about whether the terminal patient could be moved to one that ­embraced voluntary euthanasia.

    The guidelines would also canvass ways to minimise the ­impact on other patients – or residents in the case of nursing homes – and means by which faith-based care centres could ­advertise their objection to VAD.

    In June, Liberal-governed South Australia became the first state to extend conscientious ­objection from individual doctors to faith-based hospitals, allowing them to refuse to authorise or permit “any part” of the VAD process.

    State laws in Victoria, Western Australia and Tasmania are largely silent on institutional conscientious objection.

    The Queensland legislation goes further than other states in extending eligibility for VAD to the terminally ill who have a diagnosed life expectancy of 12 months, up from six months in the other jurisdictions, save for those with neurodegenerative conditions.

    The proposed Queensland law also allows doctors to raise with patients the option of assisted dying and for nurse practitioners to deliver the lethal dose – not available in the benchmark Victorian scheme that came into ­effect in 2019. WA’s program ­became operational in July.

    To be eligible, a person must be a Queensland resident older than 18, and have been diagnosed with a disease that is advanced, progressive and expected to cause death within 12 months.

  62. I believe that Covid won’t kill or harm me, and that vaccines won’t stop the largely harmless ‘rona nor the tyrannical behaviour of governments. That being said, I’ve just had my first vaccination. Here’s why.

    I am currently working in France. Here I am a second class citizen because they have vaccine passports. I have just the workplace, chemist and supermarket available to me. I was supposed to be flying home to Perth this week, however due to the pathetic Premiers and the gormless Prime Minister who have halved flights into Australia, my flight has been delayed three months.

    My mate, also from Perth, has had his flight delayed a few days and is being sent to quarantine in Adelaide. Who knows what McClown will do regarding the border before he flies back home. The dickhead has previously turned Adelaide flights back from Perth airport after someone catches a cold in South Australia while the plane was in flight.

    My wife who is from Sydney, will spend her second Christmas away from me, because last year when I was also working in France (a planned trip), the government wouldn’t let her out of East Germany Australia with me. McClown also wouldn’t let her go to Sydney to visit her son or siblings. Same again this year.

    Despite the mixed messages coming from various politicians around Australia, vaccine passports are coming. The process has already started. If you want to travel in future, you will need one.

    I have faced the fact that we anti-vaccers have lost and have joined the ranks of the weak and gullible.

  72. Sorry to hear of your awful situation, Jupes. What a mess-up hotel quarantine is, and the very idea of quarantining us forever from the rest of the world was and still is more than stupid, it is a failure of vision and forward planning. A degree of home quarantine with light supervision would have been a better option from the start, of the sort we did in late March 2020. Ok, a few may not comply, but that would have let Covid slowly spread through our community and it would have been much more handlable than the Great Australian Unexposed Populace we are faced with now under the elimination policy and hence the urgent vaxx push. If normal viral spread and population resistance had been allowed to develop, fewer people may have been pushed, as you have been, to vaxx when they really didn’t want to and our cultural norms of freedom may not have been so severely abused either.

    Re Covid not being much of a threat – well maybe it is not in overall terms, but when it does grab you it can still be very nasty. I’ve read enough personal accounts of this, and talked to British friends about their own experiences, to know that. Anyone over 50 can be caught out. Younger ones only occasionally. Some younger nurses who have had very high exposures have died in Britain, but again, numbers there are low. Still, when it’s someone you love, it still counts a lot and is something that you might want them to avoid – and at any age. And to avoid yourself. Hence I am glad there is a vaxx of sorts for those who feel at risk, as I do. I’d like a better vaxx to be developed though, and I expect that will happen. It should always be accepted on a voluntary basis though. Never any compulsion. An attenuated viral vaxx would be far more popular anyway than less than fully tested mRNA ones.

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’.

    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.

    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..

    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.

    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.

    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.

Annastacia Palaszczuk thought that a pandemic especially dangerous to the elderly and the frail; during which governments have caused an unprecedented suicide and mental health catastrophe; during which the elderly have been banned from receiving family love and attention; during which scaremongers give the public to understand that hospitals are on the verge of being swamped; during which the children of the elderly have lost their savings; as I say, during this crisis, the Premier wants to force the old and the frail to consider “voluntary assisted” dying. There has probably never been a more exploitative and casually evil ideological enterprise than this in Australian history.

    C.L.’s follow-up post is also fire.

Things are going to get very interesting in the US when the elites realise they cannot control the young. The real rebellion is about to become cool, not the ugly Antifa and BLM criminal acts.

    Last night Rita and “Gleeso” agreed that even if police have gone too far terrorising Australians, people MUST wear their (utterly useless) masks. Next: sure it was bad that a man beat a woman to a bloodied pulp in an MMA bout but, look, maybe she and women like her should have their own MMA division.

  106. 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.

  108. 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.

  113. “Faith-base hospitals”

    They are just hospitals run by religious institutions. This predilection to add ‘faith-based’ adds nothing but bile. However, given the trajectory of secular institutions, incl. hospitals, the use of ‘based’ and ‘debased’ would be helpful: oh, you’re in St Vincent’s, they don’t kill the old and frail there, based; or, I’m off to Prince Alfred, only the vaccinated are allowed entry (walks away with nose in the air), debased.

    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.

Sky News, which the kiddies also own, will be hammered by them especially, since they’ve been getting so much global coverage as a champion of the right lately.

  119. 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.

  127. 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.

    Agree BoN, I also wonder how much longer Sky will continue to broadcast Outsiders….I note that Rowan Dean on Sunday gave a stupendous editorial about how outrageous it was that Spotlight was demanding mandatory vaccination and refusing to give bonuses to employees who weren’t vaxxed…….then that night the princess Skanki Markson opened up with a nasty editorial attacking Rowan Dean….this on the same station.

    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.

    Enough……if Sky continues to go down this route I will cancel my sub and save myself money.
