    Well done to the main stream media for their continual efforts in spreading fear porn and propaganda. In typical style they have slapped unvaccinated Australians with the label of ‘Roadkill’….

    History has taught us that to force change, one must become ungovernable. And in the face of the existential threat of climate change, set to cause violence and destruction, fighting violence with violence could well be a viable option, writes @thejimmalo

    crikey.com.au
    Violent anti-vaxxers are wrong. But can their tactics hold any lessons for climate activists? Climate change’s promise of death and destruction is violence, so why shouldn’t its victims be violent in self-defence?

    Where are the police and this new found ‘incitement’ law?

    Where are the police and this new found ‘incitement’ law?

    It’s always been there, but rarely used. It was intended for people who incited others to commit proper offences, like child trafficking and high end theft-to-order where deriving any direct benefit for that activity was in question.

    Like quite a bit of legislation in this day and age, it’s been repurposed so that a minor-league public servant with a degree in Fat Kid Lunchboxes can change the fate of nations.

    Correct……and just watch the police in various states abuse their powers when the Online Safety Bill passes, because the police have been politicised and are now official tools of progressive ideology and ideologues. Look at the UK over the last few days, instead of talking about the real issues behind the Amess murder, immigration…..and let’s be specific about what I mean by immigration…..I’m talking about immigration of third world Muslim scum and the ensuing lack of assimilation of the Muslim scum, radicalisation in mosques across the UK and so on….all they’re talking about, in order to deflect from the real issues, is “online anonymity” as though that would have prevented the MURDER of Sir David Amess….oh and let’s just spell it out what happened last Friday night in Southend, it wasn’t a killing, it wasn’t a passing, it was MURDER, premeditated at that.

    Even me writing the above sentences would warrant a knock on the door for “hate speech”…..I open the door and there’s a police officer who says to me “I’ve come to check your thinking”…….and don’t think for a moment it won’t happen, it’s already happened in the UK.

    Please note that this is all brought to you by a so called Liberal government. I don’t know if anyone watched Bolt last night but he had on Campbell Newman and Tom Switzer, both of whom have joined the Lib Dems (as I have). Both Newman and Switzer were scathing of the Liberal Party of Australia….federally and state.

    I’m not looking forward to an Albosleazy government but I’m sure looking forward to seeking the smirk wiped off Scumbag Morrison’s face.

    “I am really not able to do it,” Mr Wang had responded to her requests.

    The court heard the pair met in 2018 on the dating website, Seeking Arrangements, which promotes itself as providing a platform for sugar babies “to look for the perfect sugar daddy in Melbourne”.

They will be ignored. No, the visits from the police will be strictly confined to right-wing, white, European men and women.

    Of course, no charges have been laid for this “hate speech”. Further, the MSM were strangely silent about this little gathering. Whadda you think would have happened if a similar group of far-right or neo-Nazi men and women had gathered in a Sydney street to scream genocidal hatred, do you think that the MSM and various government agencies would have ignored it?

    Something like this cropped up a while ago with Second Commissioner Jeremy Hirschhorn and some process was reached where the info never became public. Looks like that’s not on offer here.

    The ATO is, unusually for a government department, totally sincere about fulfilling its privacy obligations.

    This is coming from the pathetic clown making another buffoonish prediction .
    To make himself look legit he backs the prediction up with the offer of a bet. When I take him up on the bet, he downgrades it to wanting to just bet a dollar.

    I call him turtle head because he once put up a picture of himself and I said he looks and reminds me of a Caribbean turtle. He does.

    I was mocking him just after the monstrous imbecile came out with that outlandish , clownish “scenario”. This was his best attempt so far at being a complete tosser. He suggested the Chinese military could invade Australia by flying (filled) China Air flights into Melbourne international airport.

    I subsequently received a series of texts from Sinclair informing me that Turtle Head was threatening legal because I was making fun of him. Sinclair asked me to stop even though he amusingly conceded that it would be difficult for turtle head to sue seeing he was operating under an alias. We laughed.

    Hoddle Street mass murderer sues prison over ‘price gouging’ on phones

    exclusive
    Liam Mendes
    Reporter
    @liammendes
    9:36PM October 19, 2021

    Hoddle Street killer Julian Knight, who murdered seven people in Melbourne in the 1980s, is suing Corrections Victoria for “price gouging” prisoners, claiming he and other inmates are being overcharged for phone calls.

    Knight, who gunned down seven and wounded at least 19 others in a rampage at Clifton Hill, in the city’s northeast, in August 1987, is also demanding access to a computer and complaining about a levy imposed on cigarettes.

    The 53-year-old has accused prison operator G4S and Corrective Services of “misleading and deceptive conduct, and unconscionable conduct”.

    He is seeking an unspecified amount of compensation and declarations from the court that his claims are true.

    The claim filed in the Federal Court alleges he and 1100 other prisoners at Port Phillip Prison – Victoria’s largest maximum-­security jail – are in “unequal bargaining positions”.

    Citing Australian consumer law in his application, Knight argues that since 1997, the prison operator has profited from price increases of items sold in the prison canteen, and says those profits were not directed to amenities benefiting prisoners.

    The prison has been owned and operated by G4S since September 1997.

    “The applicant also seeks from the court a declaration that the increase in the price of almost all goods sold to prisoners through the Port Phillip Prison canteen since 1997 constitutes misleading and deceptive conduct, and unconscionable conduct,” the application reads.

    Profits generated by these sales were not expended on prisoner amenities but were instead treated as company profits, Knight claims.

    Knight also complains about a levy imposed on cigarettes and tobacco from 2004-15, which he says should have been invested towards “quit smoking initiatives”.

    Smoking was banned in all ­Victorian prisons in 2015.

    The bespectacled killer, who has been incarcerated for more than 34 years, says Corrections Victoria is “price gouging” its ­prisoners through their being over-charged to make phone calls.

    He is seeking daily access to a computer and printer, as well as an injunction in a bid to have ­LexisNexis Butterworths Un­reported Judgments Disks 1-4 and the Thomson Lawbook Co ­Federal Cases database added to the prison library computer ­server.

    Knight was 19 when he took three guns to Hoddle Street and went on a random shooting spree in 1987, intending to kill as many innocent people as he could find.

    Six of his victims were aged in their 20s and the other was a 53-year-old fork lift driver on his way to work.

    The failed army officer candidate has technically been eligible for parole since 2014 but lost a High Court bid in 2017 to overturn laws designed to keep him incarcerated until he dies.

    He has launched numerous legal challenges during his time behind bars and in 2004 was banned from launching legal ­action in Victoria’s courts for a decade after a judge branded him a “vexatious litigant”.

  49. In Freedom of Speech news:

    Scientist warns against boosting climate change deniers in Australia

    Dr Woodthorpe is expected to highlight deep concerns about the way scientists are treated online, calling for action from news companies and platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.

    “Don’t amplify the denigrators and conspiracy theorists,” she will say.

    “Balance is not one climate denier vs one climate scientist. It’s 2000 scientists before the denier gets their chance.”

    “And the effort it takes to refute any one of their articles, tweets or other postings takes an order of magnitude more that it took the conspiracy theorists and their trolls and bots to invent it and disseminate it.”

    So, more about convenience, not so much about The Science.

    Yet another FMD moment being normalised.

  64. The Senator for MBNA…
    MBNA hired Hunter Biden (then 26 years old and a recent law school graduate) during the years when then-Senator Joe Biden was pushing for bankruptcy reform legislation supported by the company, which became law and makes it more difficult to acquire bankruptcy protection.[15] Because of the close relationship between Biden and MBNA, an article in the conservative political magazine National Review referred to Biden as the “Senator from MBNA”.[16] [17] [18] [19]

    MBNA was one of the companies mentioned on a 2004 Frontline WGBH Boston PBS special about unfair business practices by credit card companies.[20] Some practices that Frontline claimed MBNA has engaged in included doubling or tripling of interest rates, shifting billing due dates/payment cycles monthly and raising rates for customers whose payments were a day or two late. MBNA has been found to be one of the leading implementors of rate-jacking. For further information and links, see credit card.

    In Ireland, MBNA was accused of calling consumers up to eight times a day who were behind in making payments, which prompted the state debt advisory service to publicly state that harassment is outlawed. Affected people were advised to complain to the relevant authorities.[21] The company in December 2009 admitted overcharging 500,000 Irish consumers up to €18 million.[22][23]

    In the UK, MBNA has come under fire for its interpretation of rules under which credit card providers must allocate payments to the debt with the highest interest rate first: one consumer site called MBNA’s interpretation of these rules a “disingenuous money-making tactic”.

    Come on down subsidy harvesters…

    And taxes will have to rise because we were taxing fuels at a ridiculous rate and now they are going away..

    Behind it all was a growing rivalry with Germany, which had only become a nation state in 1871 but was rapidly expanding its navy to rival Britain’s, not to go to war so much as to extract concessions in regard to colonial possessions, as Germany thought it deserved an empire of its own.

    In the end the Liberal government, which was largely non-interventionist, gave in to war because they feared losing power to the Conservatives.

    It was a massive failure of the political class on all sides.

  78. New York City Hall banishes founding father Thomas Jefferson

    By Will Pavia
    The Times
    58 minutes ago October 20, 2021
    7 Comments

    A statue of Thomas Jefferson, who drafted the Declaration of Independence but was a lifelong slaveholder, will be moved from the council chamber at New York City Hall.

    The eviction of a founding father from the chamber was agreed by a unanimous vote, following a long campaign by black and Latino council members. Some historians had argued that it should remain somewhere in the building.

    However, the committee that voted to move the statue then infuriated those calling for its expulsion by deciding to delay its removal until the end of the year while they considered where it should go.

    “We are deeply disappointed that the Public Design Commission voted to prolong the indignity of having the statue of Thomas Jefferson … lord over our members as they conduct the people’s business,” the council’s Black, Latino and Asian Caucus said in a statement. Its members worked “on behalf of more than five million New Yorkers of colour, who themselves do not measure up to Jefferson’s own standards of liberty and equality, as his own personal correspondence suggests,” it said.

    Jefferson held more than 600 people as slaves during the course of his life and fathered at least six children with one of them, Sally Hemings. He later freed all her children and is also credited with allowing several runaway slaves to remain unpursued. The rest were sold upon his death to pay off his debts.

    Though he wrote that slavery was evil, he espoused a “paternalistic racism”, according to the foundation that manages his former estate, Monticello, and compared freeing slaves to “abandoning children”.

  80. Lenin is said to have declared that the best way to destroy the capitalist system was to debauch the currency. By a continuing process of inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens. By this method they not only confiscate, but they confiscate arbitrarily; and, while the process impoverishes many, it actually enriches some. The sight of this arbitrary rearrangement of riches strikes not only at security but [also] at confidence in the equity of the existing distribution of wealth.

    Those to whom the system brings windfalls, beyond their deserts and even beyond their expectations or desires, become “profiteers,” who are the object of the hatred of the bourgeoisie, whom the inflationism has impoverished, not less than of the proletariat. As the inflation proceeds and the real value of the currency fluctuates wildly from month to month, all permanent relations between debtors and creditors, which form the ultimate foundation of capitalism, become so utterly disordered as to be almost meaningless; and the process of wealth-getting degenerates into a gamble and a lottery.

    Lenin was certainly right. There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.

    Indeed, Calli.

    Heard a breathless ABC weather report the other day “warn” that some suburbs of Brisvegas could expect “up to 20mm of rain in an hour”!

    20mm in 10 minutes would hardly lay the dust. It seems the BOM have gone full retard on the panic and warnings over the past few years. Everyone used to know that spring storms could be violent, and even dump a bit of rain or hail. It seems that the more information people have access to via the internet, and the more they watch TV series, the more removed from reality they have become.

    I’ve come across people who can quote story lines and even dialogue from shows on TV and Netflix or whatever, yet haven’t the slightest knowledge of weather cycles, what the squiggly lines on the weather map mean, or even why we have seasons. What used to be known in primary school seems to be jaw-dropping revelation to adults now, or even beyond their comprehension. The general ignorance is dismaying.

    No wonder so many have fallen for the “global warming”, covid and jab stuff – their entire reality is on TV and their “smart” phones.

    “Dreadnought” by Robert K Massie demonstrates in detail, by reference to tonnage and ship type and geography, that the fleet the Germans were building could have only one possible use – to support an invasion of Britain.
    They may have wanted to extract concessions, but clearly the British couldn’t just sit back and watch their safety vanish. (The converse didn’t apply of course – there was zero risk to Germany of being invaded by Britain.)
    So whatever failures might be attributed to Britain’s ruling class, the lion’s share of the blame has to fall on the German rulers.

    While the theory is valid, it can only go so far. Britain built the RN, in terms of the number of capital ships(Battleships & large cruisers) was to be larger than the next 2 largest navies combined. Britain also had a much larger specialised industrial(ie large shipyards and guns) base & treasury to build ships than Germany. Germany could never outbuild Britain as it simply did not have the shipyards nor large gun manufacturing capability, and it would have crippled the German treasury to even try to expand this capacity.

    And these were all grrat when it was all just sabre-rattling and court intrigue. Then a wounded and kingless Austria-Hungary decided some lessons needed learning, and Germany saw an opportunity to kick at France and Russia, and reorder the list of regional dominance in the process.

    And in truth? Nobody really wanted to back away too hard. Though everyone knew that a complicated and terrible mess was in the offing.

    It is not quite an example of the classical Thucydidean Trap, but a lot of egos and agendas needing satisfaction.

    The multi-sided slide to (at minimum an Eastern Pacific regional) war with Russia, China, Western Europe and the Anglophone countries and China’s Asian neighbours at each end of the square is a remarkably close mirror.

    “Following inquiries, detectives attended a home at Manly about 9.20am and spoke with a 51-year-old man. He has since been arrested and taken to Manly Police Station.”

    Slater recently lost his job as a commentator at Channel 7 after he publicly attacked Scott Morrison on Twitter over not doing enough to get Australians home during the pandemic.”

  111. Complicated little webs of mutual defence and cooperation treaties…

    IIRC, at the turn of the century, the Royal Navy planned to fight either France or Germany, they didn’t particularly care, either way.
    Whereas the Army and the Home Office preferred an alliance with whomever would’ve been the most inconvenient enemy in a war.

  112. Regarding
    “Covid-19 is a plandemic. Check it for yourself
    This is from Canada. Not easy to explain away.

    I tried to replicate his result, but couldn’t.
    Is he a bs artist, or did Canada’s gov quickly remove the “offending” page? Not sure.””

    I replicated it last night, but it is gone today.
    I as puzzled why grenades and tear gas would be associated with Cov until I realised it was smoke grenades and was for riot control!! Still, the date could have simply been a typo – but very weird.
    Even if the date was a typo – ordering grenades and tear gas because of Cov implies some idea of what was going to be going down.

  113. Many people fled to QLD over the last 12 months and are just hanging around. Holiday accommodation outside of this surfers and cairns is expensive and booked, rentals are going through the roof, every tourist place you go is packed with boomers and qlders.

    Lots of fake ‘australians’ flittering back and forth into and out of the country too staying somewhere.

    It’s not quite as dire as the Surfers / Cairns based international dollar chinga-loving tourism ‘industry’ says it is.

    A tragic variation on some cocky bastard strutting around the front bar of a country pub (you know who you are) on a Saturday night insisting on “one in – all in”.

  115. Also SE QLD quite seems to loathe surfers ‘paradise’ and the gold coast ‘tourism’ thing these days and have run a sustained campaign to turn it into an family friendly borefest. AKA an ordinary boring Australian coastal regional city. But unlike NSW beaches, Newcastle say, it has average ‘beaches’ (that one long beach) that are shit to swim at and drown the tourists regularly. So they’re in bigger trouble than they know, really.

  116. Oh yea. He often mentioned that. Ironically the worst complaint offenders were the most abusive with racist comments directed at individuals and the regular pile on offenders.

    I was asked to lay off mentioning someone rooting a sex worker in SE Asia due to threats of “action”.
    I did, but I’m not sure what action could be taken for mentioning what someone wrote in their own damn book.

  117. FECA BULLETIN NO. 22-01 October 1, 2021

    Subject: Coverage for Injuries Resulting from the COVID-19 Vaccination Mandate for Federal Employees.

    https://www.dol.gov/agencies/owcp/FECA/regs/compliance/DFECfolio/FECABulletins/FY2020-2024

    … this executive order now makes COVID-19 vaccination a requirement of most Federal employment. As such, employees impacted by this mandate who receive required COVID-19 vaccinations on or after the date of the executive order may be afforded coverage under the FECA for any adverse reactions to the vaccine itself, and for any injuries sustained while obtaining the vaccination.

    From The Daily Telegraph…I love it when chickens come home to roost.

    “Michael Slater arrested after alleged domestic violence incident:

    Following the Andrew O’Keefe playbook to the letter.

    Slater recently lost his job as a commentator at Channel 7 after he publicly attacked Scott Morrison on Twitter over not doing enough to get Australians home during the pandemic.”

    Ah, not quite.
    Slater pissed off to India to commentate on the IPL in the middle of this shit-show. Rolled the dice and, when that went pear-shaped, he was “trapped” in a resort in the Maldives (cry me a fucking river) and tried to publicly pressure ScoMo into a bit of queue jumping.
    I reckon Channel Seven have been looking to rissole him for a while.
    If you aren’t Richie Benaud, ex-cricketers doing run of the mill “expert commentary” are like weather girls.
    Not many last into their forties.

    It appears to be the same backfilling exercise re the “trusted digital identity” legislation the federales are trying on.

    Hang on a minute- That’s Australian beaches in general.

    The only extra spiciness you get is the lethal klingon-cloaking-device-equipped micro-jellyfish further north, the hungry sharks to the west and the Chinese Submarines hiding in the cold waters of our more southerly ones…

    I suspect it was just a team of coalescing of losers who liked each other’s views. From what I could tell though there was a concerted effort to complain about people in order to push them off the site. The worst offenders had exchanged email addresses through Sinclair and it was uncanny how some turned up at the appropriate time to join a pile on. There were and there still are some disgusting weasels hanging around.

    Mid north coast of NSW has the best beaches in Oz.

    Nothing better than a dip after a cheeky nine holes next door.

    From what I understand, Sinc thought most of the legal threats were try-ons from flat-brokr pensioner grifters looking for a quick $5-$10k.
    It seems their favourite target was those who projected an image of high net worth (eg majority BHP shareholders).
    Whilst he agreed they were laughable try-ons, I think he just got sick of the incessant whining from time to time.

  127. Chief Health Officer Jeannette Young said going forward, authorities would still need to isolate people who test positive to COVID-19.

    “There’ll be nothing different there,” she said.

    “Except if they’re fully vaccinated, we know that they’ll get much milder disease so they’ll probably be able to do that at home rather than in one of our hospitals.

    “We’ll assess the home, we’ll assess the other people in that home and what the risks are, and they’ll probably be able to be managed in one of our virtual wards to make sure that they’re okay.

    Looking forward to all the assessing and risk management and case management in one of the ‘virtual wards’.

    At the end of “everyone getting it” there won’t be a single Queensland bedroom that hasn’t been peered into by our moist and lovely GG.
    It’s the Future.

  128. Watching Omega Man right now. The good one, not the Will Smith “I am Legend”, crapfest.

    When the man-made plague was screaming ’round the world, the citizens were told to “stay indoors, do not leave your homes or you WILL BE SUMMARILY EXECUTED”.

    Reckon our National Cabinet of Wankers would love to have used that treatment on us. So close.

    They are hiding the bodies. All the Covid stats etc can and are being obfuscated but dead bodies is what counts. Obviously this data is embarrassing so they don’t release it.

    We just went and saw our accommodation provider here on the Sunshine Coast to pay for our next place and our options for January, so far they have not seen an uptick in bookings and Xmas/New Year week excepted we can almost have our choice of holiday units for all of January and February.

    That is a lie. They know nothing of the sort. Fully vacinated people die of Covid.
