  1. I genuinely can’t believe the premier appointed plibers bloke as his head of department. That;s one of the few public service jobs that you can replace. why would you not have someone who believes in what you do? I find it hard to believe that plibbers bloke isn’t labor all the way

  3. Ooops. Hairdressers are likely to be over-run next week regardless of the vaxx status issue, Hairy and I agree, so I give him one more haircut. But somehow I have managed this time to turn him into a skinhead. I was sure that was the adapter I used last time on the clippers, I say.

    You’ll look ok again in a week or two, I comfort, and you can see a professional then.
    Once I had started it was impossible to change it because there would have been a track of almost baldness right up the back. 😉

  4. Hairdressers are likely to be over-run next week regardless of the vaxx status issue

    In the old days the ladies of Rhodes (the island) donated their hair for the manufacture of torsion catapults. Rhodes was under siege and hair was an important strategic commodity back then.

    Given the parlous state of the ADF in the artillery area maybe they should gather up the hair of hirsute NSWelshpersons and build catapults from them.

    My hair could power several catapults, I think, although my hairdresser will need a chainsaw to shear me.

    I listened to an interesting podcast this morning. The dude was saying how the msm is trying to heighten outrage over the January 6th pretending Trump was responsible. And the reason why they’re focusing on this non-event?They can’t really compare Trump policies to Hiden and his policies because it reminds folks just how bad Hiden is compared to Trump. How true.

    Look, I’m too old perhaps to consider the value BTC has to offer, as I just don’t see it. I also think government like the US , EU, China , Japan and whomever else are not going to give away their power to determine monetary policy and the printing press. They will die in a ditch before that happens.

    This is what makes me very very negative about BTC or any other free market currency regime outside of government control. From the 90s onward, the US basically broke the back of tax havens and didn’t stop until they fucked over Switzerland to give away the names of ALL non- Swiss residents who held bank accounts in Switzerland. I can’t see how you can have a currency regime like BTC without havens such as what there used to be in the Caribbean or Europe.

    Keep in mind that in 2016, the Dutch wanted information from a stone walling Credit Suisse about Dutch holders of Swiss accounts in Switzerland. The Bank refused and the Dutch got the help of the NSA to break into the CS systems retrieve all the information. The NSA passed the information to the Dutch and the Dutch government then passed on all information pertaining to Swiss account in other domiciles such as Australia. Read up on it, it was in the AFR at the time.

    Here’s my counterfactual:

    BTC is above where it was before it was banned in China last month.

    Here’s what you are missing: Who can you lean on with BTC, even if you are Uncle Sam??

    The Swiss or Dutch government do not own it.

  12. Procedural rules however would mean the vote must be retaken.

    No, that didn’t happen. The speaker let the vote stand, which would not have passed otherwise. There was talk of court action, but it seems that can’t happen, due to parliamentary privilege. Which is kind of my point – if sued Zoom might try and maintain an indemnity from the speaker, so she would have just made herself liable. And perhaps then she would reconsider and hold a new vote.

  15. I found the information presented in the link disturbing. Riccardo Bosi and a Tamworth man discuss Oncologists forcing jabs on sick kids in cancer wards. As well as their parents threatening restriction of visiting “privileges”. Coerced vaccination and some pretty unpleasant goings on imposed for Indigenous people in Western NSW ( 14:05->).

    Genocide is a term we’ve all heard, would prefer not to hear, used in reference to the formation of Australia. Often preferring to just not consider the magnitude of effects, the impact of flu and smallpox on immunogenically naive populations as correlating with any blame or responsibility.

    While I have come across references to diseases being introduced into the Americas with malicious intent, I had not previously heard the same had occurred here. I would have to agree that albeit on a smaller scale, what is described here does appear to meet the criteria. By proxy of virus or adverse vaccine reaction.

  20. Sheikh Mohammed will ‘no longer be invited to Royal Box at Ascot’

    The ruler of Dubai spent millions of pounds at an equine auction on Thursday after it was revealed he hacked phones of his ex-wife
    By Robert Mendick, Chief Reporter and Hannah Furness, Royal Correspondent 7 October 2021 • 1:06pm

    Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum ignored the phone hacking scandal that has left his reputation in tatters to spend millions of pounds at an equine auction.

    Dubai’s ruler attended the Tattersalls yearling sale at Newmarket on Thursday, buying 15 horses for £10m.

    Looking tired and drawn, Sheikh Mohammed defied the calls for him to face criminal investigation to attend the three-day sale, the most prestigious yearling auction in Europe.

    Despite his continued investment in horse racing, it is understood the Queen will no longer invite Sheikh Mohammed to be her guest in the Royal Box at Ascot.

    The move is part of an attempt to ensure the Queen is not seen in public with Sheikh Mohammed after a judge ruled he had ordered the hacking of phones belonging to his ex-wife and the Tory peer who acts as her lawyer.

    No longer invited to the Royal Box at Ascot! That’ll show him!

  26. Just saw Amanda Stoker and Jacinta Price together on Sky Friday evening talking about CPAC, which is happening in Brisbane in November. Going to be stymied by border issues though. There was such a great vibe between the two of them, the new and younger generation taking it up to the forces of the left. Both waxing lyrical about how great CPAC 2019 was, which is what drew us to the 2020 gathering.

    Very encouraging indeed.

    The presenter said there was no CPAC in 2020. There may not have been a conference but 300 people gathered under the aegis of CPAC on the night of the US election and received speeches IRL and also from the US online, so CPAC wasn’t exactly defunct for that year. I think it is an organisation whose time has come, it is time conservatives stood up to debate and voice a public political alternative. My American defacto daughter in law, with whom I am very close, mother of my autistic grandson, saw us there in the front row on national TV. Live with it, I tell her, for we have agreed to disagree.

  29. CPAC 2020 was a catered dinner in a function centre. Limited to 300 due to Covid rules.

    We certainly didn’t expect these to continue into 2021 as we planned with others to meet up again ‘next time’ for another night of gee-up for those who enjoy the company of like-minded individuals.

    It was an interesting nite, first watching Trump wipe the floor with the Biden, only to have some very shonky things start to happen in real time during the US early hours of the morning.

    What the???? was the general reaction to what we are still all convinced was a steal, with shonky ballots turning up from everywhere.

It’s the uniform scumbags who are despicable. I saw a bunch of them today surrounding a cop car parked in the same loading zone I was talking about earlier, ironically enough.. They were having coffee and chatting dressed in their battle fatigues and with their battle equipment attached. It was the tip of my tongue, but I stopped myself.. I was just about to ask if they had returned or were about to head to Afghanistan wearing that gear. One of these days I will as the area is a focal point for them as it’s near the shrine.

  33. Almost 150 Chinese warplanes have breached Taiwan’s airspace since Friday, including 56 jets on Monday in a dramatic escalation of Chinese aggression against the self-governing democracy.

    Joe Biden said he had spoken to Chinese President Xi Jinping about Taiwan and they agreed to abide by the Taiwan agreement as tensions continue to ratchet up between Taipei and Beijing.

    ‘I’ve spoken with Xi about Taiwan. We agree…we’ll abide by the Taiwan agreement,’ Biden said to reporters at the White House on Tuesday.

    However, that call took place on September 9 and it’s not clear what agreement he was referring to.

  43. Yesterday Hairy and I went for a walk down to the Parsley Bay beach reserve area, and aimed to walk back up to the road through the pathway by the stream up the gully. In the empty carpark a cop car suddenly arrived and slowly circled. It was about 5.45pm and no-one else was around. The cops cast an eye over both of us and suddenly I had a bit of a panic. For every walk we have taken I have studiously gathered up the mandatory mask and ID and put them into my pocket, but as we in our minds had decided that lockdown was over even though it doesn’t end till Monday, I had forgotten this time to have the necessities on me. Just my luck to get a $500 fine at this late stage as they are looking for one last catch and capture, I thought, so I slowed my pace and started to limp like some sort of cripple. The cops drove off. It worked.

  51. Hundred-year-old Nazi goes on trial

    Jacquelin Magnay
    Europe Correspondent
    @jacquelinmagnay
    7:55AM October 8, 2021
    Comments

    The oldest accused Nazi, 100 year old Josef Schuetz, hid his face behind a blue folder on the first day of his mass murder trial in Germany on Thursday.

    Mr Schuetz was a SS guard at the Sachsenhausen concentration camp in Oranienburg, north of Berlin, where it has been conservatively estimated that more than 30,000 of the 200,000 prisoners died.

    Mr Schuetz is alleged to have “knowingly and willingly” assisted in the murder of 3,518 prisoners between 1942 and 1945. The court heard that he aided and abetting the execution of Soviet prisoners of war in 1942 who were killed by a firing squad and the mass killing of political and other prisoners using the poisonous gas Zyklon B.

    At least one survivor of the Sachsenhausen camp, Leon Schwarzenbaum, 100, attended the trial.

    He wanted a final conviction as it would be the “last trial for my friends and acquaintances and my loved ones who were murdered”.

    Mr Schuetz has lived in Brandenburg since the war, where he worked as a locksmith. He came to the attention of German prosecutors four years ago after his name appeared in files at the Russian State Military Archive in Moscow among ‘Beuteakten’ documents taken by the Red Army during World War II.

    He was 21 when he was posted to Sachsenhausen, which also doubled as a training ground for elite members of the SS.

    On Thursday Mr Schuetz arrived at the court – which has reduced the sitting hours to 150 minutes a day in respect of his age – using first a wheelchair and then a walking frame. His face was hidden by a large blue folder.

    Mr Schuetz’s lawyer Stefan Waterkamp said his client would not be making any comment about the allegations against him, but he would speak about his personal situation on Friday.

    The Sachsenhausen camp was considered particularly brutal as it was the “test’’ camp for many horrific Nazi medical experiments, and camp officials began experimenting there with the killing of political and Jewish prisoners with poison gas, even before it was introduced in 1942 in Auschwitz.

    Ever since former SS guard John Demjanjuk was convicted ten years ago, German prosecutors have pursued lower ranking Nazis for aiding and abetting the Nazi crimes.

    Another trial involving a Nazi secretary at the Stutthof camp, Irmgard Furchner, has been rescheduled for October 19. Ms Furchner escaped from a nursing home hours before her trial was due to begin last week.

    German prosecutors have another half dozen cases against former Nazi members, aged in their late 90s, they are attempting to bring to trial.

    krazykiwi
    While the discussion here is – rightly – abhorrence at the prospect of a private business being nationalised, look at the business itself.

    We know that government has controlled the narrative around ‘cases’ to use ‘casedemic’ fear port to their advantage. The prospect of private testing puts that control of the narrative at risk, and that’s something that they won’t tolerate.

    For example, imagine privately available, randomly conducted antibody testing. This would offer population wide seroprevalence data that would show just how many people had contracted and sef-recovered from Covid-19 with the vast majority of young people not even knowing they’d been infected, and around 66% of adults also not knowing. That information would be like kryptonite for Ardern who is hellbent on stretching out the fear and control until the next election.

    That’s the safe assumption. Probably nothing we can do to conceal our identity from them. I’m not worried about it. They will be far more interested in those attending protests. Perhaps they check out anyone who demonstrate extremist group association. No-one here is a threat to the state and they know it.

  55. bYou had the opportunity to leave all these personal attacks behind you on the old cat. You didn’t. You cannot help yourself with your constant ego strutting and anger issues.
    You brag about bullying people in school. By now, you are supposed to have worked out that having been a bully is something you should be ashamed of, not proud.
    Isn’t it time you grew up?

    More popcorn, anyone?

  56. Today I received an sms from Qld Health telling me to get vaxxed. Still trying to figure out how they got my phone number. There it is, in their minds anyone who isn’t vaxxed is a threat to the state.

    Indeed he did. A pivotal moment in human history it will be. FFS, the steal was so blatant as to be beyond parody.

    But when you share a planet with many, many brainwashed illiterate innumerate anti-scientific fact and evidence free ahistorical imbeciles, you end up being admonished by this very weird creature, expounding endlessly … 🙁

  58. For those that fear the furniture store

    Take Back Your Government!: A Practical Handbook for the Private Citizen Who Wants Democracy to Work

    Brief History of the book en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Take_Back_Your_Government

    The book was written in 1946 and wasn’t published until 1992 being 4 years after Heinlen died.

    It is written in the context of American politics but as far as grass roots organizing and politicking in general it still has relevance today.

    Anyone that has had anything to do with politics at a local branch level will recognize at least some of the sentiments and ideas put forward and if you have never been engaged it is the only book I’ve ever come across that will give you some insights of what you are liable to encounter.

    If anyone is interested then I believe it is still available for sale on the second hand market. 2012 was the last edition printed.

    I genuinely can’t believe the premier appointed plibers bloke as his head of department. That;s one of the few public service jobs that you can replace. why would you not have someone who believes in what you do? I find it hard to believe that plibbers bloke isn’t labor all the way

    They’re both from the same party.

  66. I appreciate the reluctance and opprobrium toward Heinlein’s later books but remember first and foremost he was ‘tinkering’ with concepts involving time travel and genetics.

    After all, will it be the hidden isolates who avoid the jab that will carry a conventional notion of humanity into the future or some modified covid jabbed ‘human’????

I sure didn’t, nor did I know the filth had bought themselves an armoured car with a gun turret for popping off grenades at hooligans, aka the citizenry.

    I have a nephew like that.
    Pretty sure he reckons nobody knows he’s a stoner.
    But we all know he’s a stoner.

    All my family and acquaintances know I smoke. Meanwhile, sucking down their booze … . I time my smoking to allow for washout. There is a substantial body of literature showing that cannabinoids inhibit protein aggregation but timing is important. I can explain that down to the molecular level but have banned myself from ever stating like details here. I did go overboard. Sorry about that. Your stoner friend was probably the typical stoner who never bothered to learn anything so smoked when he felt like it. Probably wouldn’t know a CB1 from a CB2. I am not like your nephew, he must be an idiot to think people don’t know. BTW I previously wrote that I never kept it secret and you overlooked that. Are you presently sucking booze?

    REPORT: 9 out of 10 CHILDREN with COVID in ICU are obese

    Well, it’s difficult not to notice the large number of little porkers out there these days, waddling along behind their equally porky parents.

    The only “generously-sized” kid I ever knew was a Papuan, and she wasn’t fat, just built like a typical Papuan – shorter and rounder than the average Aussie kid.

    If obesity is a high risk for this covid thing, maybe the elf officials should be rounding up the porkers and putting them in the Jenny Craig paddock instead of monstering those of us who are sensibly cautious about being jabbed with an experimental concoction.

  74. If we ever get Australia back from the goons of “Public Service” Health and Politics then every State and Commonwealth Costitution needs amending to allow election of your local Sherrif, which position still exists under Law.

    ???

    Sheriffs only exist as the head of their department in a State.

    They (the Sheriff’s officers) enforce civil court orders, provide court security and escort non prisoner accuseds held on remand within court complexes.

    —————-

    What you suggest however is a really good idea.

    1. Consistent with subsidiarity.
    2. Closer to participatory democracy.
    3. Better accountability.
    4. Further promotes the separation of powers and dilution of political power.

    Which in themselves promote democracy, republicanism and therefore promote liberty.

    Well, it’s difficult not to notice the large number of little porkers out there these days, waddling along behind their equally porky parents.

    Last night I followed a hunch as to why the USA was hit so badly while the Scandinavian countries have managed it very well. The USA tops the obesity rates, the Scandinavian countries are near the bottom. Also a friend told me the Scandinavians are much more physically active.

    I don’t see little porkers everywhere. Last time I looked in Aus the obesity problem is with the older age sets and is declining in the younger ages.

    Many thanks Cats for the welcome and the vibe.

    Since I last contributed to the discourse here I’ve sadly lost a couple of friends to the ChinaVirus hysteria and managed to injure myself (god knows when) and am facing surgery for a disc replacement or laminectomy to my c6c7 region.

    Custard, the late Mr Bushkid had the disc replacement surgery between C6-C7, and it was amazingly successful. Having one of the best neurosurgeons in the state, I think he was the only one doing that particular surgery here at the time, helps. But if it’s on offer, and you’re confident in the neurosurgeon, then it can be a option. Total replacement of the joint with the artificial one gave Mr B complete pain relief and normal function of the joint, and it never showed any hint of trouble.

  79. You were told on the old Cat to stay away, after you laughingly threatened legal action either against Sinclair or myself for being mocked. Being mocked with you existing under an alias. Stay away and don’t try to run with posses like you did a couple of days ago with Faulty 2.

    Link required, JC. Prove it, liar.

    Prove what, dickhead, that you threatened legal action? Ask Sinclair who texted me saying (you) Turtle head was threatening legal action because I was mocking you and I asked him how can someone posting under and alias make threats? We were both amused. Also, I reminded him that I had zero interest in ever talking to you. It was you in fact who had been crawling to me for attention.

    Also, don’t grovel. I have zero interest in anything you have to say and less than zero interacting with you because I don’t respect any opinion you post. Nothing. However, I will retaliate at my leisure when you try to pull a posse stunt like that. Just stop trying to interact with me and fuck right off, you ridiculous clown.

    When you ask a question, don’t be surprised if I answer it. You don’t have any right on this blog to demand others accede to whatever whims you have on a particular day.

    When I ask a question, it’s not for you to answer anything I post as I have no respect for you and don’t ever read anything you have say, because I consider you to be a moron, an idiot who ruins blogs by posting ridiculous comments such as the Chinese military scenario of trying to take over Australia by landing at Tullarmine airport. You complete moron. One of the reasons the old blog was shut down was because imbeciles like you wouldn’t leave it alone, you low IQ piece of human trash.

    You had the opportunity to leave all these personal attacks behind you on the old cat. You didn’t. You cannot help yourself with your constant ego strutting and anger issues.

    What I do and don’t do is of no consequence to you. Think of this rule now being extended to others. If I see you ever joining posse to go after anyone, you freak, the same will apply as though you were doing it to me. You… turtle head.. had the opportunity to stop joining pile ons and posses on the new site and you can’t do it, because you’re a bed panning loser with no attributes. No wonder you’re Nurse Betty.

    You brag about bullying people in school. By now, you are supposed to have worked out that having been a bully is something you should be ashamed of, not proud.

    Lord you’re pathetic. You’re just a pathetic loser. Now fuck and don’t ever talk to me you “scenariolist” clown .

    Take away the 600 to 700 killed in nursing homes in NSW and Victoria last year, and the number looks even more ridiculous when compared to the gross over-reaction.
