  1. Also didn’t whining Wilder stop the Gypsy King challenging for another unification bout?

    Righto. Didn’t know about that one.

    Not sure the US boxers know how to take anyone else but themselves. During the pre-fight rah-rah all the Yanks do is stare each other out and threaten to kill them by various methods.

    This time around, Fury told the press pack that ‘Last time, Deontay Wilder was beaten by a fat man who can’t box.’ Meaning himself.

    Wilder was looking around for the fat man, going ‘wut’.

  2. Yesterday, I honoured my promise and threw my fate in with my eldest grandson. I had my first jab of Moderna. Cats will know I’m not happy about it but my position had became untenable, and I’m not about to have my 45 year marriage ruined by this bullshit.

    Sorry calling, I know the family pressure being exerted only too well and how difficult it is to hold the line. I wish you well on the journey and hope it remains smooth for you.

    Hekmatullah walked free in Qatar after Afghanistan fell to Taliban

    Hekmatullah, the rogue Afghan army soldier who murdered three Australians in 2012, has been allowed to walk free, and Australian officials have no firm idea of his whereabouts.

    The Australian can reveal the confessed killer was released from house arrest in Qatar along with five other “high-risk prisoners” soon after the fall of Kabul to the Taliban.

    Defence quietly notified the families of his three victims – Lance Corporal Stjepan “Rick” Milosevic, Private Robert Poate, and Sapper James Martin – but did not make the news public.

    Australian authorities lost track of the insider-attack killer after he was set free in Doha, but he is presumed to have returned to Afghanistan. “His whereabouts cannot be verified,” a government spokesman said.

    “We share the sorrow of Australians at this outcome and again offer our condolences to the families and the loved ones of our three fallen soldiers.”

    The confirmation of Hekmatullah’s release draws another grim line under Australia’s two-decade contribution to the war in Afghanistan, after the late-August scramble to rescue hundreds of Afghan support staff from Taliban retribution.

    Defence, Foreign Affairs and Home Affairs bureaucrats will be grilled by a Senate committee on Monday over their knowledge of the former Afghan army sergeant’s release, the adequacy of preparations for Australia’s withdrawal and the long-term security consequences of the country’s return to Taliban rule.

    Lance Corporal Milosevic’s widow, Kelly Walton, said Defence had been unable to tell her whether her husband’s killer had been allowed to remain in Qatar, or whether he had been put on a plane to Afghanistan.

    She said she was also disappointed the government could not tell her whether Hekmatullah had a passport, and if he was on an international watchlist.

    “None of those questions have ever been answered,” she told The Australian.

    “The (Defence) liaison officer said he was instructed to advise Hekmatullah had been released from house arrest, and that was about it.

    “I would like to know, has he gone his own way and dis­appeared into the abyss? Or has the Taliban kept him within their grasp and are they telling him what he should be doing and where he should be going?”

    Private Poate’s father, Hugh, said he had been expecting Hekmatullah’s release since July, when the US ended its two-decade presence in Afghanistan with the late-night abandonment of Bagram Air Base.

    “The families were called and informed he was one of those who had been released,” he said.

    “Whether he was put on a plane and taken back to Afghanistan, I don’t know. But I would imagine so, because that is where he was from. Why would he want to stay there when his family is back in Afghanistan?”

    Mr Poate said Defence’s failure to disclose the news publicly was indicative of its “general lack of transparency”.

  8. Australian great Robbie Slater on the box-smacker socka chicks (the Tele):

    Incidents that De Vanna has brought up may have been wrongly swept under the carpet when the Matildas’ following was small.

    But there’s no more hiding, and that applies to the players as well.

    The silence from Matildas captain Kerr and her teammates – particularly the squad’s senior players – has been deafening.

    Where is their support for De Vanna?

    The longer Kerr and her national teammates say nothing, the more it calls into question the so-called grand culture that supposedly exists in Australian women’s football.

    Someone – or some people – need to be publicly put under the bus.

  13. The remnant of the infamous British Charge of The Light Brigade that occurred in 1854 were granted swathes of property in Australia as gift from the then Crown as basic blood money.

    If those survivors of the stupidity of the “elite” had remained in England then the “Crown” would have been at risk.

    So you make sure you either emasculate your best soldiers viz Ben R Smith, or send them as far away as possible which was Tasmania back then.

    Big flood on yellow river?

    At the 4 minute mark, the video shows bags of “flour” that have been used to shore the banks of the river. The commentary states the local party officials had used the stocks of ?fill ?? sand that would normally be used, for their own purposes.
    This being Chinese news, I don’t know the truth of it, but if the present lectures of not wasting food are anything to go by, if the bags have been filled with flour I would expect the firing squads will be busy in the next week or so.

    “There’s a pervasive anxiety about what may or may not happen this winter, because of something we have no control over, which is the weather.”

    So why are $trillions frittered away every year in an attempt to do precisely that?

    Because for one, Trillions of Dollars “frittered” are not “vanished”, they end up in the pockets of The Lie Pushers.

    Secondly, like The Pill (that was sold on the lies of saving women from ‘back yard’ abortions & unwanted children from a bad life=making humans more humane), it’s another giant spit in the face of God Who told us He set this world up for us and get on with populating & subduing it.

    Always a great mystery to me why TV networks put so much into breakfast TV. The viewer numbers are low, and most of those aren’t really engaged. It’s just background noise while they get ready for the day.

    How the fuck can they call it “Freedom Day” when the so-called ‘freedoms’ are denied to a large portion of the population and accompanied by a thousand rules?

    Here in Sandgroperstan, the Elder Angers continue to ensure we make hay while the Nosferaflu-free (false?) sun continues to shine.

    Mama Anger says ‘Delta is coming,’ not out of manufactured fear but pragmatism. Another LockDan is practically inevitable under Uncle Mark’s goverment, so we carefully stockpile our loo paper, sweets, booze and other essentials while the stockpiling is good.

    If it doesn’t eventuate, at least our Christmas supplies will be ready nice and early… 😉

  77. Chris Mitchell’s Monday column has so many memorable lines, here it is in full:

    The inner suburbs of Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra are a world away from mainstream Australia. They are also where many journalists who work in the national media live.
    Spending all of Sydney’s latest Covid lockdown largely free on the NSW mid-north coast, I headed up to Coffs Harbour a fortnight ago to visit friends and spent a morning at The Bunker, the town’s brilliant National Cartoon Gallery. The main upstairs exhibition was a selection of the best work of the late Bill Leak, this newspaper’s editorial cartoonist who died on March 10, 2017.
    Some of Leak’s other work occasionally appears at the Manly Gallery, on Sydney’s northern beaches. It’s instructive to watch people on the so-called “insular Peninsular” — a million miles from Sydney spiritually, but only seven miles by ferry — lap up Bill’s creativity, draughtsmanship, love of life and larrikin disrespect for authority. Just as they did in Coffs.
    The WA audience fits that mould: 6PR’s Liam Bartlett devoted 19 minutes to a September 28 interview with Fred Pawle, author of Die Laughing: The Biography of Bill Leak.
    Unfortunately, the national broadcaster has not to date seen fit to talk about Bill’s biography, published by the Institute of Public Affairs, even though Leak had many friends at the ABC — indeed, four of them are quoted in Die Laughing and have been given review copies of the book. It’s the sort of cancel culture our ABC is falling into as social media activists exert ever more pressure on an organisation they think they own.
    Yet in mainstream Australia — surely the ABC’s target audience — the concept of cancel culture is largely unknown. People still give their children Harry Potter books, celebrate Australia Day, know Captain Cook was a great explorer and may even know he was a man of the Enlightenment.
    Unlike many of the youthful campaigning class beloved by the ABC and Guardian Australia, most mainstream Australians don’t confuse Cook with Governor Phillip and the First Fleet. Nor do they pull statues down, hate their fathers, sons and husbands or know what toxic masculinity even means. They know there are good guys and bad guys. Ditto with women.
    It’s also fair to say most mainstream Australians are not racists, even though a few may be. How can I be sure? Try the 1967 referendum for starters.
    But the ABC and much of the modern moral media middle class sees our country in black and white terms. They believe they are on the high moral ground. They have become “punishers” and “straighteners”, the criticism historian Manning Clark used to make of the conservative establishment.
    In this brave new world, political virtue sits with the Greens and Labor’s left. People who vote for their own economic self-interest — especially Coalition parties — are derided on social media as intellectually and morally inferior. Never mind the working class once voted ALP because it was the party that advocated policies to benefit workers.

    People who know nothing of the facts proclaim former NSW premier Gladys Berejiklian a sinner and Victorian Premier Dan Andrews a saint. They assert Gladys let Covid destroy NSW while Dan shut early to save his state. Never mind Victoria’s outbreak, its sixth, has grown faster than in NSW and has already reached a higher peak.
    They bag new NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet as dangerous because he is a Catholic with six kids, but would never criticise a Muslim politician with a big -family.
    Die Laughing explains why in such a polarised media climate, Leak — a big-hearted supporter of the underdog — became a sinner to the left and saint to the right.
    ABC 7.30 host Leigh Sales gets it right in the book. Leak was “probably the most vehemently anti-Howard person I’d ever met,” Sales tells Pawle, formerly a features journalist, surf writer and sub-editor on this newspaper.
    “After Rudd took power … Bill shifted in the opposite direction. It’s entirely possible he could have gone back again … because he was an extreme personality. He was incapable of having middle ground positions. The nature of the far-left now, and cancel culture, is that if you say something that goes against what the left believes, it is not enough for them to disagree with you. You are disavowed and you are cancelled.”
    Sales describes a close personal friendship with Leak. ABC personalities Richard Fidler and Libbi Gorr were also mates of his. Phillip Adams was another close friend and is quoted in the book about the flaws in the Racial Discrimination Act used to undermine Leak.
    Yet Leak did not want to be a campaigner for the political right. He rang me on the Tuesday afternoon before he died. The next night Barry Humphries, as Sir Les Patterson, was to launch Leak’s book, Trigger Warning, a collection of political cartoons from the previous year.
    Leak said to me: “I am sorry you are not coming tomorrow night, mate. Truth is I am so stressed by all this 18C stuff it’s making me unwell. I am an artist. I am cut out for political cartooning, not political campaigning.”
    He died of a heart attack, less than three days later.
    Once cartoonists were expected to take the mickey out of politicians and their ideas, no matter which side was in office. Now some ideas — about climate, racism, ethnicity, diversity, minority group religion, feminism, homosexuality and transgender rights — can never be satirised. Doing so was Leak’s crime.
    Says Humphries in the introduction to Die Laughing: “The New Puritanism in Australia, which endorses unfunny comedians who merely ‘identify’ as funny, also condemns every form of creative art it does not understand.” He was referring specifically to the cartoon that brought Leak into the sights of the Human Rights Commission.
    People who sought to punish Leak under section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act for publishing a poignant cartoon about Aboriginal dads are on the side of the wowser, who according to Humphries “is a traditional -Australian figure — humourless, ignorant, vindictive. He is still with us, disguised as a liberal-minded upholder of the politically correct”.
    That cartoon — which showed an Aboriginal father not knowing the name of his son — followed issues of violence against young Aboriginals at the Don Dale Detention Centre in Darwin, exposed by Four Corners in 2016.
    Leak was moved by the Don Dale story and many of his Aboriginal friends supported his cartoon. They know Aboriginal people have agency and are not victim caricatures. But in the modern media world, only whites can damage Aboriginal people.
    If you don’t like your political commentary delivered by an overwrought, pursed-lipped, tut-tutting reporter with little real world experience, this book is for you. If you like journalists and cartoonists with a healthy disrespect for authority, prepared to challenge accepted pieties, even better. Because that’s who Leak was, and Fred Pawle nails it.

    Skaf parole: Some dangerous criminals don’t deserve freedom Jennifer Oriel

    11:00PM October 10, 2021
    72 Comments

    The release from jail of convicted rapist Mohammed Skaf raises questions about whether Australian law is equipped to safeguard society from violent sexual offenders. Skaf was part of a gang whose members preyed on teenage girls in 2000. It was a series of brutal attacks that became known as the Sydney gang rapes. The gang members used sexual and racial hatred in the commission of their crimes. They expressed little or no remorse. Yet most have been released from jail.

    Baria Skaf wanted her “boys” to come home. In a 2002 interview with journalist Candace Sutton, the Skaf matriarch expressed doubt about her sons’ guilt. Sutton reported that Baria Skaf had Muslim and Christian friends at the time. But court proceedings and media interviews revealed that members of the Skaf gang used violent racism against the girls they brutalised. They called one victim an “Aussie pig”. They threatened to rape a girl “Leb style”. Despite being born in Australia, the rapists identified as Lebanese.

    An 18-year-old girl was reading a book of English literature on the train home one afternoon when she was surrounded by a group of males. According to Michael Finnane, the judge who would later preside over the rape trials, the youths were led by Mohammed Skaf. They assaulted the teenager, forced her off the train and into public toilets where they assaulted her again. One of the men phoned another group, which arrived by car. The teenage girl was taken to the Bankstown Trotting Club and raped again. A second car arrived with more men who had been told by the rapists about the victim, whom they viciously vilified by calling her “a slut”. In the second car, the girl was brutalised three more times. The gang tortured the teenager for six hours. In a 2018 article for The Australian Financial Review, Finnane recounted that, in all, 14 males brutally violated her more than 40 times.

    It is difficult to imagine the trauma, both psychological and physical, she suffered or how she managed to survive the harrowing legal process to bring the rapists to justice. Australians owe her a debt of gratitude for stopping the gang preying upon other girls. Justice was served, of a sort. But in Australia, the sentence of life imprisonment is usually reserved for murder. As such, violent sexual offenders rarely spend their lives in prison. Some reoffend after release. One of the most infamous was Adrian Bayley, who had served 11 years in jail for repeated sexual offences including rape and was paroled in 2010 before raping and murdering Jill Meagher in 2012.

    Other victims brutalised by the Skaf gang included a 16-year-old girl who knew Mohammed Skaf from school. She thought they were friends. He took her to a park where his brother, Bilal, lay in wait with a gang of men. They held her down as Bilal raped her. They looked on, laughing. A second male followed Bilal. He held a gun to the teenager’s head, raped her and kicked her in the stomach in a final act of degradation. The Age reported that when Acting Justice Jane Mathews sentenced Bilal for the rape, he smiled.

    The Skaf brothers identify as Lebanese Muslim. Three members of the gang raped another two 16-year-old girls repeatedly in an ordeal that lasted five hours. They dragged the girls by the neck to rape them in a park, and told one: “You deserve it because you are Australian.” One of the victims said outside court that in the course of securing a plea bargain deal, ethnic references had been removed from her statement. The implication is the public do not know to what degree racial hatred might have inspired the rapists, or provided them with a sense of justification for enacting cruel and degrading crimes on girls from Anglo-European descent.

    Some media pundits, academics and Islamic community leaders claimed it was Lebanese Muslims who were the victims of racism. They criticised then Labor premier Bob Carr for supporting Finnane, who wanted to name the perpetrators, but could not because they were juvenile offenders. Carr believed they did not deserve such protection. Keysar Trad, of the Lebanese Muslim Association, said naming the rapists would cause their families to suffer. In an interview with the ABC’s 7.30 Report, Trad denied the victims were targeted because of their ethnicity. Rather, the rapists were motivated primarily by “gratification”.

    When one racial or religious group targets another for violence and uses racial hatred against victims, it is commonly understood as a hate crime. The fact some racists derive sexual satisfaction from punishing girls or women from another ethnic group does not alter the fact. There is evidence to suggest the ethnic bigotry of the Skaf gang might not have been isolated to the girls they brutalised. On a phone seized by police, they found a message by ringleader Bilal Skaf: “When you are feeling down … bash a Christian or Catholic.” The Australian Associated Press cited a pre-release report compiled by NSW Corrective Services in 2017 that suggested Mohammed Skaf blamed his cultural upbringing for his behaviour towards women, and showed no empathy for his victims.

    In his book, The Pursuit of Justice, Finnane revealed that in court, associates of the rapists showed gross disrespect for the victims: “Some people in the public gallery, including the mother of Bilal Skaf, were hurling abuse at the three victims who had turned up for the sentencing.” It was so serious that Finnane was compelled to warn the menacing group to desist, or they would be arrested. The Daily Mail reported that a female relative abused Crown prosecutor Margaret Cunneen, calling her “sharmoota”, meaning whore in Arabic.

    Australia does not have the death penalty, but our justice system has repeatedly failed to safeguard law-abiding citizens from dangerous criminals. Releasing violent offenders who feign remorse condemns innocent citizens to suffer. In Australia, the death penalty is by default. The paroled liar’s next unwitting victim is put on death row.

    I suspect quite a few people are ‘grateful’, but would put that down to euphoria. There are propitiatory rituals required now that seem small enough compared to the reward, but when people get used to going to the pub again, especially when boosters become due and they are again being warned they could be reduced to second class citizens without the covid porn media they might not be as complacent.

    Right now they are prisoners being freed together. Next time they will be free(r) people being threatened with being imprisoned individually.

  101. apparently there are no actual foetal cells in the vaccines

    Those sorts of article are blackly humorous Rosie! On the one hand they confirm that the vaccine concerned IS in fact manufactured using cells derived from an aborted foetus. Which is exactly why the archbishops of Sydney warned ScoMo last year. And on the other hand they are fact-checking a straw man, since that isn’t and never was the problem. It is such a transparent ploy that it undermines its own intention.

    I saw these articles back when the AZ and J&J reservations were starting to become obvious. You’d put a search term like ‘AZ fetal cells’ into a search engine and kazam! These hits would pop up like daisies. They’re like Snopes “fact checks”, which these days also tend increasingly to be political hit pieces and strawman demolitions.
