The vegan climate mafia are fun. What they don’t seem to realize is that if stuff like Australian grass-fed beef and lamb are banned (see Leak this morning) it would increase GHG generation and land-use based warming as more land would have to be given over to broad-acre agriculture, because unfortunately for vegans we can’t eat grass.

Not if we starve to death first or die of a totally unexpected and unpredictable consequence of the lifesaving experimental drug presently being forced on us.

If everyone on the flight is jabbed and negative for the Rona, just where does this execrable flog think the virus is hiding waiting to strike?

Inside their shitty in flight rag?

It’s an admission that neither the vaxx nor the PCR is any good. It also is a signal that, should anyone succumb, they took all possible measures to limit transmission.

Any way you look at it, it’s bullsh*t on stilts.

And, you test +ve for the Big Rona overseas, kiss your seat goodbye and welcome to a world of pain in a country far, far away.

– kill us with death jabs
– force us to eat vegan diets
– freeze us to death
– suspend elections
– stop us earning an income
– abandon us if we dare to leave and get sick
– stop us having Christmas

Calli – you forgot castrations, woke MacBeth productions and bad movies.

Nolte: Marvel’s Woke ‘Eternals’ Must Really Suck to Get These Reviews (29 Oct)

How many hundreds of TV shows and movies have we seen win unearned critical praise due only to their woke credentials? If something hits their left-wing sweet spots, critics almost always try to sucker us into wasting our time and money on objectively terrible movies and TV shows that push the correct political message. Disney especially gets a pass because everyone wants Disney to like them. So, let me repeat: Eternals must stink like a dead fish to earn reviews like these.

This is not a good sign for Marvel.

I love his tea-leaf reading. Takes real effort to erode such a money-making machine as the Marvel comic-book series. But wokerati are capable of anything.

What would happen if a Russian MP turned up in Melbourne a few weeks ago to check on the expat community and in response 50000 unvaccinated people, protestors, pro freedom people, ethnics, turned up at Melbourne’s airport and started boarding planes on the tarmac to escape to Russia that evening?

Would would be done to stop them leaving the country? How far do you think Andrews and Scommo and their security forces would go to maintain their iron grip of control? How far would the mob demand they go?

An interesting thought experiment.

I’ve yet to see a single person here resisting ‘on principle ‘ that doesn’t also claim the vaccines are useless/make you sick/ are dangerous and, mostly, anyone that’s had one is a traitor/a fool/a cowardIm doing so on principle you unhinged mong.

I havent made any of those claims however.

1: The vaccines dont prevent getting the virus or you passing it onto anyone else. So a major “were all in this together” is a big fail. Also given the chance of mortality to me as an individual with no co-morbidities is somewhere around 1 in 10,000 there is absolutely no basis to force me to undergo a medical procedure I dont consent to,
2: Its targeted tyranny, using businesses as catspaws because what they are doing is otherwise illegal. Prisoners 9people directly under state control) arent mandated but Vicky at Colesworth is.
3: I might have to end up buckling, I dont have FU money and am only flying under the radar here because Im extremely difficult to replace with less than 2 or 3 people due to the roles Im spread across.

4: and the big one for me. This has been the single biggest violation of medical ethics for at least a generation. But if I actively or passively resist Im likely to lose my Paramedic registration. Thats the same “penalty” every health professional is facing.

Its seriously vile shit.

All I have to say is wow…

And on that, NSW has local govt elections on 4 Dec. If Perrottet decides to push that 1 Dec date back, what happens to voting? The LGA elections have already been moved from Sept, moving them again would be delaying them until next year, which may look a bit tricky so close to the Federal romp.

I can’t see the govt saying to the unvaxxed: “You may not pass” (h/t Gandalf) because its mandatory voting in this country and even at the LGA level. [edit: I know, most?/all? people find local govt elections a waste of time, but didn’t someone upthread mention principles?] And on raising distinctions, I’m reliably informed that voters do not have to wear masks, but the electoral workers do; so that can’t help the govt.

A different entrance to the booths for the unvaxxed perhaps? But that will force the disclosing of vaccination status of voters, with the distinct aroma of making the unvaxxed into not just imagined but into real 2nd class citizens, and in front of everyone.

Don’t forget for our betters, who at least on the surface all believe in – you know the thing – mandatory voting, it would be really distasteful having to see it play out in front on them. For it would be a breaking of that great Australian democratic spectacle of everyone coming out to do their civic duty.

I can’t see the media not reporting some great footage of tired, unkempt voters, all needing a haircut and being forced to stand apart from the favoured ones. I know, previously they’ve liked bikini-clad girls and blokes in boardies inside the booths but, hey, what’s not to like pictures of folks, still for the moment sans the arrow stripes [edit: where’s my lipstick!], respectfully standing away from their betters while all join in with the democratic process as one a one and free people.

Time to play Dom’s Wheel of Fortune: so make your selections:

1) Stick to the 1 Dec opening for all and have the state move on?
2) Introduce health orders to remove the right of the unvaxxed to vote and so break the electoral laws?
3) Force the unvaxxed to enter by a different door to vote in dedicated booths and thereby permanently create different classes of citizen whenever the need arises?

[edit: If it was up to the health bureaucrats, I know what they’d want to do. But what will Dom do?]

(p.s. I wanted to put up that clip of Lord Farquaad’s perfect match scene from Shrek – but I can’t get it to work – I need some in-house training).

Nice science news story for naval history Cats:

WA shipwreck reveals secrets of 17th -century Dutch seafaring domination (29 Oct)

Built in Amsterdam in 1626-1628 and wrecked on its maiden voyage in June 1629 on Morning Reef off Beacon Island (Houtman Abrolhos Archipelago), Batavia epitomises Dutch East India (VOC) shipbuilding at its finest in a Golden Age … “The use of wind-powered sawmills became common place in the Dutch republic towards the mid-17th century, allowing the Dutch to produce unprecedented numbers of ocean-going ships for long-distance voyaging and interregional trade in Asia, but how did they organise the supply of such an intensive shipbuilding activity? The Dutch Republic and its hinterland certainly lacked domestic resources” says Wendy van Duivenvoorde.

The article is light on details, but there’s a link at the bottom to the paper itself. It answers the question where the trees came from:

hull planks from the Baltic and Lübeck, framing elements from Lower Saxony

Prof. van Duivenvoorde has a great Dutch name!

Heard an interesting podcast. Covid should be reconsidered as a inflammation induced illness.

JC, an even more interesting podcast was interview with an Indian GP in South Africa who has treated around 7,000 COVID patients. A wily, observant old blighter – he noticed that patients had mild or no symptoms for the first 7 days. Then, for SOME patients, all hell broke loose on the 8th day when….you guessed it…..inflammation exploded.

To him, it was typical of an allergic reaction & he treated it accordingly with anti-histamines and steroids. Only 4 patients succumbed after this treatment – & they had serious co-morbidities.

His thesis is that it is, indeed, an allergic reaction…..to the DEBRIS left from the virus which the immune system largely dealt with after 7 days.

What made this very impressive for me was not only his successful record with patients – but the recall of a story about an aged care home in Spain which had no medications other than anti-histamines……they, too, did not lose a patient – in spite of the average age of their patients.

I have so much saved info on this stuff…..but I will post it if I can find it.

But of course; not to be outdone by the Poms:

The first case of what’s now the fastest-growing coronavirus strain in the UK has been detected in Australia, with more infections set to follow as international borders reopen.
The variant, known as AY. 4.2 or “Delta plus”, was found in a case in NSW hotel quarantine. So far it’s the only Covid-19 infection with that strain across the nation.

While the Delta subtype was first identified overseas in July, it now makes up about 10 per cent of virus samples taken in the UK, according to health officials. Experts say it appears to be 10 to 15 per cent more transmissible than the original Delta variant.

I have just returned from my daily walk around my farm & have been ruminating (yes – like the cows!) on my risk analysis re COVID & not agreeing to be vaccinated.

As it is spring, I have encountered 4 snakes (2 blacks & 2 Eastern Browns) in my daily walks over the last weeks. Many of my city friends would faint at merely being told about this. But in every case, I saw them because I understand their habitat, habits & level of aggression. At this time of year, I am constantly scanning for them. The nearest hospital is 45 minutes away – & that is nearing the limit for Eastern Brown venom recovery – & that is without reaching the house. Because of this, I also carry a compression bandage & have decided to now carry “a walkie-talkie” to reach my husband. But does this danger make me want to sell the farm or stop my walks? No. It is managed risk analysis – although I hope this is not “famous last words”!

How is COVID different? The risk is far less when you consider the excellent chances of recovery from COVID. Am I wrong?

Just checked again today. Yep, answer is still the same: I’d rather be free than safe.

So right Gab. We live where everything is dangerous, cars going through red lights, drugged idiots breaking into peoples homes, not keeping your fridge at a low temp to stop bacteria growing, snagging your hand on a rose thorn (FiL did, arm turned black), tripping over my best wee mate because he was in that space first. I admit when I got caught overseas when Scumo announced closing the borders I read online on the ABC (colour me stupid) I wouldn’t be getting back. Pure sensationalism to be expected. Not a problem I duly returned on the flight I was already booked on but I wasted a day trying to find out what really was going on. I got back to Sydney, there was one doctor? asking everyone “are you ok” that was it. The first thing I thought was you haven’t got a clue and continued to think the same thing since. Walked through customs without being checked, could ‘ve had my walk on luggage full of heroin. All they wanted was people out of there. Insanity has raged ever since. The grifters saw an opportunity, the rest is history. How come the only ones that made any money out of this are the elite, and their day of reckoning is coming. Since we have let the left makes words mean whatever they wish there can be no arguing, only actions. This is only the end of the beginning. I’m one of those that just want to be left alone. I don’t back down.

One GP I tried to hash out some vaccine issues with looked like a primary school kid who hadn’t memorised a presentation properly and got all nervous when I asked questions about my situation. Completely not convincing and embarrassed to think that anyone would get similar advice and think “yep, I’m ok with this”.

He kept going back to the side effects and the conversation pretty much word for word was,
“Have you had any blood clots?”

Professor Obvious leaps into action!

Widespread fast-food restaurants linked to higher rates of type 2 diabetes (29 Oct)

A new nationwide study led by researchers from NYU Grossman School of Medicine published online today in JAMA Network Open suggests that living in neighborhoods with higher availability of fast-food outlets across all regions of the United States is associated with higher subsequent risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

I quite like that this is from the Grossman School of Medicine. Is there a Svelte School of Medicine somewhere? Every time someone tries to sell vegan fast food the business dies horribly. Maccas could tell you this since their advertising of their rabbit-food menu seems to’ve quietly evaporated.

Guantanamo Bay inmate reveals ‘terrifying’ CIA abuse techniques
Ben FoxAP
Fri, 29 October 2021 1:08PM
Duration 2:12

President Joe Biden’s aides have launched a formal review of the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba, reviving the Obama-era goal of closing the controversial facility with the aim of doing so before he leaves office, the White House said

A Guantanamo Bay prisoner who went through the brutal US government interrogation program after the 9/11 attacks has described it openly for the first time, saying he was left terrified and hallucinating from techniques the CIA long sought to keep secret.

Majid Khan, a former resident of the Baltimore suburbs who became an al-Qaeda courier, told jurors considering his sentence for war crimes how he was subjected to days of painful abuse in the clandestine CIA facilities known as “black sites,” as interrogators pressed him for information.

It was the first time any of the so-called high-value detainees held at the US base in Cuba have been able to testify about what the US has euphemistically called “enhanced interrogation” but has been widely condemned as torture.

“I thought I was going to die,” he said.

Khan spoke of being suspended naked from a ceiling beam for long periods, doused repeatedly with ice water to keep him awake for days. He described having his head held underwater to the point of near drowning, only to have water poured into his nose and mouth when the interrogators let him up.

He was beaten, given forced enemas, sexually assaulted and starved in overseas prisons whose locations were not disclosed.

“I would beg them to stop and swear to them that I didn’t know anything,” he said. “If I had intelligence to give I would have given it already but I didn’t have anything to give.”

Khan, reading from a 39-page statement, spoke on the first day in what is expected to be a two-day sentencing hearing at the US base in Cuba.

Haven’t we had this discussion on the Cat before? Modern methods of interrogation mean that no – one would need to lay a finger on Khan?

It truly is the dumbest TV rights deal in Australian broadcasting history: Network Ten bought the rights to the week-long Melbourne Cup carnival in 2018 for $A20 million per annum – five times what Seven paid.

Ten has four days to try to make its money back from its audience of millennials who hate paying for anything (no paywalls at the Guardian, Fakefacts or the ABC) while, at the same time, Seven’s free-to-air affiliate Channel 78 (a.k.a.racing.com) is still able to broadcast the whole thing unimpeded for racing purists.

More evidence that Ten’s owner, CBS of the USA, is using its Australian investment as a tax write-off and that there are no adults in charge at Ten.

Vicki, no you’re most certainly not wrong as the chances of survival are as close to 100% as they could be for someone who sounds fit and isn’t that old. The trouble is that by all accounts it’s multiples more heavy duty than the flu for those who get it bad and you’ll feel like dying for 2 to 3 weeks. A flu lasts for about a week.
There’s one person who posts here, who shall remain nameless and contracted the thing sometime last year, and is still dealing with the after effects – apparently on and off steroids.

You missed the point Gab. A bad dose of Covid is 6 to 10 times worse than a bad dose of the flu. That’s what I was saying. Compare like with like.

Also, you really can’t compare the contraction numbers here for both illnesses the way you are as we have never socially distanced and closed the economy for a year because of the flu.

If we treated covid the same way as we treat the flu in terms of avoiding it (we don’t) I’d take a rough guess and suggest 50% of the population would have had it by now. The flu has a contraction rate of about 1.1. The Chinese bio-weapon started at 2.5ish and the new variant could be as high as 4.5.

Ominous turn of events:

Deputy Premier Steven Miles insists the state’s COVID-19 health response won’t ‘miss a beat,’ following the shock resignation of upcoming Chief Health Officer Dr Krispin Hajkowicz.

Mr Miles confirmed Dr Hajkowicz had turned down the role just days before beginning due to personal reasons, adding the timing of the announcement was not ‘ideal.’
“It was unexpected … and he has asked that we respect his privacy,” Mr Miles said.

What was he being told he was going to have to do.

I mentioned a while ago that I watched a long video of him at the start of this nonsense. His brother is some CSIRO futurist bugman, they were both in the video His brother was stating clearly that people are going to have to give up the idea of privacy for the new medical technological order. Krispen here, to his credit baulked at his brothers attitude a little and gave the example of AIDS testing requiring absolute privacy to ensure people would come forward without fear.

But he didn’t strike me as a man who was going to handle the incredible political dance of the CHO position in QLD well, certainly not when the screws needed to be driven in as they are about to do.

Decent sized protest at Parliament House in Spring Street at the moment. Seems to have caught the police by surprise, since the cops had to send reinforcements from the local station running up Bourke Street through the crowd. They lined up to start their usual attack on peaceful protesters, but someone called them off and then a good number were pulled back out of sight into the Parliament Gardens. They kept a few armoured stormturtles on show behind the regular uniforms, but there was no obvious threat of attack as of fifteen minutes ago.

There’s clearly some protest organisation going on, which is good. The bad news is that the organisers are giving the microphone to any idiot speak who can find a way to the front. Must do better. Shrill stream-of-consciousness monologues with no call to action . . . fail. If any of you are in a position to make a difference, for goodness’ sake vet the speakers. Make sure they have a succinct message that’s on point, keep your own hand on the microphone, and cut them off brutally once they begin straying into retard territory.

This just came into my mailbox via a COVID protest site (Tom Woods) Read it & weep:

I write as a long-time listener to share my personal story regarding the vaccine mandates. As a Rothbardian libertarian, I have followed you for many years, watched you speak in person, and attended the Mises Circle on multiple occasions. I listen to your podcasts and read Lew Rockwell on a near daily basis.

I work at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA as an RF/microwave engineer, where I design, develop, and maintain high-powered transmitters for NASA’s Deep Space Communications network.

A portion of my work involves developing and maintaining the radar transmitter for the one-of-a-kind Solar System Radar on the Goldstone 70-meter Antenna also known as the Mars Site, which not only identifies and studies near earth asteroids that potentially endanger the Earth under the charge of “planetary protection,” but communicates with spacecraft such as the Voyager Spacecraft at the very edge of the solar system.

In addition, over the last five years I have lead a team which has been developing a new type of transmitter technology that has the potential to revolutionize communications for space applications. We are on the precipice of completing a working prototype of this new technology, scheduled to be completed this next year.

Unfortunately, on December 8th, I will be placed on unpaid leave for refusing a forced medical injection, and ex-terminated shortly thereafter, along with colleagues of mine that also went from hero to zero this past year after participating in placing the Perseverance Mars Rover on another planet.

I am devastated that the time, energy, and passion I have invested in my development work will be halted in its tracks when I am placed on leave, and my innovative efforts will die alongside me. Not only will I be terminated from my job, but my career as well, as government money touches and corrupts all aspects of my industry of expertise, and I will be unable to work for any company within my field.

I have witnessed the decline of our civilization for years now, but I must admit that I am shocked at the recent rapid acceleration of our societal decay. Despite the logical part of my brain having expected something like this for some time, I still find the entire situation that we find ourselves in a bit surreal.

Having shared my situation, I want to express how very much I appreciate the work that you do. People like you help others of us by serving as a beacon of light during dark times, and dark times we very much face, my friend. Your podcasts serve as a reminder that there are other kindred spirits out there.

With your example and inspiration, I recently chose to take a lead role in mounting a resistance within my organization by seeking out and recruiting like-minded individuals. Through our efforts we have managed to bring together many individuals from all walks of life, with differing backgrounds, cultures, and education with the sole focus of seeking liberty.

Thank you again for all that you do. Please wish us luck in our battle against the State.

Now, remember:

These are the kinds of stories we can never forget. We can never forget what the crazies have done to us.

Some time ago I featured on the Tom Woods Show a group of professional filmmakers — with credits you would recognize — who have anonymously banded together to create the ultimate COVID documentary, with all the charts and arguments against the standard narrative, but also with human interest stories that remind us of the human cost of the lockdowns and general inhumanity of the COVID regime.

I think you know why they’re anonymous — they don’t want their careers destroyed.

As I mentioned in the episode, I myself contributed $10,000 to this project, so I am not asking you to consider doing anything I myself haven’t done.

But I hope you’ll support them. For a couple of days they have a matching grant, so anything you give will be doubled.

No one is coming to save us, folks. We have to do this ourselves:

P.S. FYI, my friends at Rocket Languages (and I mean that literally — I know the co-founder) are taking 60% off all foreign-language courses, but only the next 200 courses or so, so once those are sold the sale ends.

Thank you.
I have to doff my cap to lefty protest groups. They have this down pat.
The speakers all have a tight 15 second grab for the news.
And they decide how they want to represent the protest demographic (“kids concerned about da planet” or “grandparents worried about their grandkids”) and stack the front row accordingly.
Yeah, yeah, I know.
“But the media lie and misrepresent”.
They do.
But make them go find someone up the back to suit the narrative.
Don’t give some 5G nano-wriggler deadshit the microphone.
I know this pushes buttons here, but I go back to the Great Convoy. If that was a lefty protest they would have tightly stuck to the theme (which was anti Carbon Tax). The very witty “Ditch the Witch” guy would have been ushered away and the front row would have been salt-of-the-earth fluoro wukkas.
No point crying “snot fair”.

The problem is that the organisers kill off momentum and create a huge buzz-kill every time they give the mike to an untrained speaker with a rambling, boring, semi-coherent monologue.

Small flip phones with little screens I hear are good because everything is condensed within that small space it creates it’s own fuzzy effect, aids intrusive squinty eyes so would probably look more authentic, you could sms a creative vax pass to a phone and save in gallery.

No, there are definitely SJW types in the crowd, but they’re not the problem. The problem is that the organisers kill off momentum and create a huge buzz-

Running a meeting 101:
Have your speakers lined up.
You’re saying they can organise 5,000 people to turn up at Spring Street but they can’t organise 4 or five speakers?
Mate, the Socialist Workers Party or similar have taken over this movement.
Why would they give a platform to anyone talking sense?

My point that there are many jobs that require vaccination, e.g., Q-Fever in the Meat Processing and Dairy Industries, Salmonella testing as a condition of working in the Meat Export Industry, Hepatitis B vaccination for water treatment and water reticulation workers, likely quite a few others require proof of vaccination.
So, that’s not the real issue, is it?

I dont have a problem with vaccines that have been properly tested. I do have a problem with blanket mandates and government tyranny and the big dollars behind all this.

A couple of points:-
– Don’t wing it. Write and rehearse. Very few people speak coherently off the cuff.
– Keep it short. Then halve it. Remember the guy who spoke for two and a half hours before Lincoln at Gettysburg? No? No-one does.

the government giddily used the last half-century to print and spend dollars until the value of a dollar today is worth only two cents compared to 1971.
https://www.officialdata.org/us/inflation/1979?amount=1
$1 in 1979 is worth $3.78 today
or
this calculator gives it as $.15.

It’s one thing to announce a vaccine is safe to use after only 8 weeks of Trials, but to then give the 50% of blind participants the real vaccine on the grounds of public health is stretching credibility.
They blew up the Trial, so basically the vaccine is untested, despite Dr Malone’s spin.

I had to go to the local hospital emergency dept a couple of hours ago, we have no doctors that work weekends here. I suspected that I have an infection in my left hand (blood borne). Anyway they wouldn’t let me in, someone spoke to me on the intercom and said to wait outside until I could be seen, so it’s freezing cold and windy here and I sat outside in the open for over half an hour. Finally a nurse came out and wouldn’t take me inside because of covid, I have no symptoms and haven’t been anywhere near other people lately. Still wouldn’t let me in so I sat in a chair outside and the nurse brought out a blood pressure machine etc and assessed me out front, I was shivering it was so cold. Then off he goes to call the doctor, about 20 minutes later came out and gave me some antibiotics and told me to take them and see the doctor on Monday, he also advised a tetanus shot. So he then went back inside and brought out the tetanus needle. I then in the front of the hospital almost on the street had to take off my upper clothing to get jabbed.

Earlier I referred to an Indian GP in South Africa who had treated over 7,000 COVID patients. He had noted that most had mild symptoms, but a minority became very ill suddenly on the 8th day of the virus. This, of course, was the cytokine storm that causes oxygen levels to drop dramatically. To this old GP, it looked vert much like an allergic reaction. He reasoned that the immune system in these patients may have dealt with the virus initially, but had an allergic reaction to the virus debris.

As a result, he successfully treated these patients with a combination of anti-histamines & steroids, with dramatic improvements. It reminded me of an item I had read about an aged care home in Spain with only anti-histamines in their medical arsenal – & they did not lose a patient.

The piece on the Indian doctor is well worth viewing.

Leeds University students demand staff state their gender
Charlotte Wace, Northern Correspondent
Saturday October 30 2021, 12.01am BST, The Times

Students and staff at Leeds University have called on their vice-chancellor and senior employees to include gender pronouns when introducing themselves in meetings.

They also said that the vice-chancellor, Simone Buitendijk, should state her preferred gender pronouns in her email signature. Both measures are designed to show support for the transgender community.

The university was accused of having “a deeply entrenched culture of transphobia” in a letter signed by LGBT staff and student groups, as well as by the Leeds branch of the University and College Union (UCU). It was sent in August and addressed to Buitendijk, who took up the post last September.
In your inbox

The letter called on her to “rapidly address and effectively rectify the current discriminatory situation” at the university, which the writers said was “a hostile environment for trans staff and students”. Concerns were raised over people being misgendered by colleagues who, in some cases had not apologised before being asked.

The university was also accused in the letter of maintaining IT systems that posed “a significant safety risk” as “deadnames” — the name a trans person used before their transition — continued to show up.

A fundraising page was sent up last month to “bring the University of Leeds to account in an employment tribunal” after an employee’s previous name and gender were allegedly disclosed to other staff and third parties.

Among the other demands, the letter called for “an effective and fit-for-purpose pronouns policy to be enacted, to include our VC showing her support for the trans community by using pronouns in her email signature, and a culture which encourages the sharing of pronouns when, for example, in meetings and seminars”.

The university said: “We strongly deny the assertion that we have created a ‘hostile environment’ for transgender staff and students, but recognise that we need to do more to alleviate concerns that have been put to us and are working with our community to do so. We have a clear and unwavering commitment to ensuring equality, diversity and inclusion for all.”

Responding to the letter last month, Buitendijk said that the university “takes its commitment to equality extremely seriously”.

A number of universities have introduced training and guidance on transgender issues. Edinburgh University lecturers have been given a list of “micro-insults” to avoid, such as “I wanted to be a boy when I was a child”, it was reported last week. Several Russell Group universities have asked lecturers to take new training on “cisgender privilege”.

My darling, I provide numbers based in evidence, you provide ”a guess” and a ”suggest”.

That’s true, you did. However, if you want to compare like with like, the flu season literally collapsed in 2020. 435 cases if the flu were reported and no one died over the 12 months.

And according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the last Australian death officially attributed to influenza was recorded in July 2020.

also:

Professor Ian Barr is the Deputy Director of the World Health Organisation Collaborating Centre for Reference and Research on Influenza at the Doherty Institute. He is frank when asked if he ever imagined the current situation; just 435 cases notified to the Australian Influenza Surveillance Report so far this year and no hospital admissions.

‘No. It’s amazing. Never,’ he told newsGP.

While there have been cases of influenza in quarantine, almost none have been in the community either in Australia or New Zealand. Data from the Australia Influenza Surveillance Report suggests the historically low levels observed last year have declined further still in 2021, notwithstanding a rise between January and May.

For context, there were 21,005 notifications of laboratory-confirmed influenza by this time in 2020 and 36 deaths. In 2019, there had been 214,377 and 486 deaths.

https://www1.racgp.org.au/newsgp/clinical/australia-records-zero-flu-deaths-over-past-12-mon

Without a cost benefit analysis, social distancing, lock ups etc did lower contagion. However, that isn’t how you would determine actions against a pandemic.

And Sydney’s top trainer Chris Waller and Sydney’s top jockey James McDonald won the breeders’ gold medal in the $1.5m Coolmore Stud Stakes at Flemington.

V’landys is a one-trick pony with no friends whose only talent is wrecking things. People who know stuff suggest V’landys is heading for a major confrontation in the next week with Racing Australia’s new chairman, John Messara (one of the country’s top breeders), about his pointless, bloodyminded intransigence.

Gab – That’s excellent! Perhaps a letter to the Catholic, Anglican and Orthodox Archbishops of Sydney might give some leverage to getting Mr Hunt to consider it. (Not having heard of Cogforlife, I checked them out, they look good.)

Right now I’m somewhat exhausted since the guys over the back fence saw me feeding several Cafe customers on the fence and said there’s a rainbow lorikeet wandering around their yard. So I said I’ve a cage. Off they went. The guy comes back a short time later with a pained expression. “He bit you?” asks I. Yep, and he hands me the lorikeet, who is just fledged. Ouch I say (since the lorikeet immediately latches onto my finger – it’s not happy.)

So into cage for a short while then onto the clothesline, since two pairs of adult rainbow lorikeets were around. Not the parents unfortunately. So much for Plan A.

Plan B was to go get some honey and put it on some bread. Which lorikeet kid thought was wonderful – I’m hungry! Then back into kitchen to make a paste of bread and honey and water, which goes into a small jar lid and into the cage. Kid lorikeet went for it very happily and ate the lot.

And now I feel stuffed, it’s amazing how much mental energy you can burn doing something so trivial. That’s most of a Saturday arvo gone. We’ll see if kid lorikeet’s parents turn up.

I haven’t read back thread to see if it’s been mentioned, but there is a report in the Oz today about a ‘far-right coup plot’ in France just thwarted, the plot members including ‘military, police, lawyers’.. “Prosecutors said their targets incorporating violent action were institutional sites, vaccination centres and 5G masts … a satanist pedophile elite infiltrated by freemasons’. Surveillance intensified last spring after a band of retired generals and some serving officers said the army might have to seize power to avoid “civil war”. The leader of a breakaway group is Remy Daillet, ‘a leading figure in the French version of America’s Q-Anon movement’ who was a regional official in the centrist Democratic Movement political party before breaking away from that. Interrogators describe him as “a charismatic, intelligent manipulator … criticising a supposed cabal of bankers, paedophiles and corrupt politicians defiling the state”. Investigators were told of “a satanist pedophile elite infiltrated by freemasons” being opposed by a group of 300 led by a retired colonel, Christophe M who had appointed regional ‘captains’ who were to gather firearms and other riot gear for an attack on the Elysee Palace. The French clampdown might have something to do with Bossi’s beliefs in a ‘big event’ for the linkages to a currency of thought are obvious?

I am sure that ASIO and others will already have plenty of tabs (justified in my view) on some of this sort of genuinely far-right activity taking place in Australia. Nothing a centre-right blog like the Cat would want to be associated with, imho, these extremes of political protest veering into idiocy, but stemming from despair at the real loss of democratic freedoms.

Yes, Bruce, suddenly the whole world around us at home here seems to be fledging. One of our Currawong fledgies has taken off to another nearby small tree whose branches interlock with the Pittosporum where the nest is, while the other fledgie is sitting cheeping helplessly on the edge of the nest, the parents feeding both of them with our pork mince. Not too much, I say to Hairy, or these fledgies will be thinking port mince grows on trees and missing out on important learning experiences re insects and berries and baby lizards. There are also little honeyeater fledgies around, and noises emerging from the Lorikeets’ nests further away. I saw a group of Currawongs further down the garden chasing away a big grey bird, only got a quick glance but I think it was a channel-billed cuckoo. A dangerous time to be a fledgling.
