    Northern Territory Police have charged a man over an alleged sexual assault of a young child in East Arnhem.

    The 31-year-old man was arrested at a remote community on Tuesday following investigations by the Child Abuse Taskforce.

    The alleged assault occurred on October 24, and police believe the child was known to him.

    The man has been charged with indecent dealings with a child under 10 years old.

    He has been remanded in custody and is due to appear in the Darwin Local Court on December 15, after his first appearance on Thursday.

    As the ‘Conspiracy nuts’ warned at the time, it was always about Tracking & Tracing Individuals movements & other related Bug Testing.

    More nuts than conspiracy. Go back to working on your manuscript of Gulag Archipelago.

    According to theosophy those who work against human freedom eventually lose the conscious ‘light’ loaned to them, ultimately resulting in those types of ‘humans’ failing and ending up in darkness.

    I think this madness will need to run its course. Not unlike the USSR under Stalin, or Cambodia under Pol Pot.

    An obvious sign of such ‘endarkening’ is when people can happily discuss & even agree on hot topics for days, weeks, months & years, when talking with those they believe to have a handle on, and yet totally freak out when an “uncontrolled” “outsider” pops in to say the very same things that’s perfectly acceptable when the “controlled”, “insiders” says ’em.

    It isn’t the information that’s objected to (as it’s acceptance, when delivered by ‘acceptable’ people, proves), but that it’s delivered by “unknowns”.

    For starters there’s always the terror that the Ruling Dictators are having another purge of old allies who are no longer useful in selling The Current, Approved, Narrative.

    The first duty of narrative controllers is to nail foul lies to “unknowns” who refuse to yield to The Narratives.

    Selling a Narrative means presenting ‘the other side’ and ‘beating it’.

    This goes on a lot on social media, often with one professional propagandist running both the ‘winning’ & ‘losing’ characters.

    No matter how good the ‘losing’ argument is, it will stumble, fail & fall before making the kill shot against the bad argument that’s been set up to ‘win’.

    But, when there’s an “unknown” also speaking in The Narrative, well, it can tend to spook the whoreses …

    Silly girl, you don’t retrieve a body from the top of Mt Warning – you just chuck it off the side and let it bounce to the bottom and thence – if you’ve kicked it just the right way – into the ambulance.

    Not standing (or falling unnecessarily) with a possible undetected cancer to keep you happy.

    People figured out months ago that your relentless mocking of struth isn’t because his ideas are dumb, or even anything to do with struth – other than you hate him because he’s a dumb working class Queenslander. It’s because he makes you feel like you’re being exposed as a coward having to explain to everyone why you fully intend on doing nothing and embracing everything while pretending that there is no other option.

    Imagine the gall of someone who spent months and months viciously hen-pecking, piling on and mocking struth about his quite brave lonely little protest of walking out of his house and down to his Anzac memorial in the depths of the ‘pandemic’ hysteria last year, then sitting here quietly 18 months later when Victorian protestors turned up en-masse at the Victorian ‘Shrine’ (sans-him, of course) and everyone here was rooting for them and raging against the media and state for persecuting and mocking and lying about them thinking: “oh shit, please nobody remember my 30,000 vicious comments last year mocking and lying about Struth for doing and urging everyone to do that very thing“.

    It’s not just that you’re a coward leigh-lowe, it’s that you’re completely useless politically. You’re the mediocre player who dances around the scrum and the ball every match but strangely never seems to touch it, who occasionally tries to ‘tackle’ people but never actually brings anyone to the ground, whose ideas are shit and instincts are non-existent and who covers for all that by aggressively mouthing off loudly at everyone on the field. Everyone rolls their eyes, it’s all a farce, everyone knows it.

    This is too intriguing to leave on another thread: Two posts at Eugyppius here and here indicate that COVID appeared in China in Spring 2019 and was spreading in Europe by September. As he says:

    To begin with, this new chronology shows that our impressions of the first wave were all wrong. The upside of those waves, as they washed ashore in each of our countries, was an artefact of increasing diagnostic capacity and the ramping up of mass testing through March and April. In many places, true infections were probably already receding as capacity increased, generating false case peaks where the two lines came to intersect. This was certainly the case in Germany, and it fuelled exaggerated views of SARS-2 transmissibility in those early months that have remained with us ever since.

    The new chronology als shows that standard views of the transmissibility and pathogenicity of SARS-2 have been wildly exaggerated. Community spread went unnoticed for months in Italy and France and surely elsewhere in Europe too. Some doctors noted strange bilateral pneumonia cases in their elderly patients in the last months of 2019, but there was no obvious hospitalisation or mortality signal until very late in the winter. The earliest identified cases in Italy are all concentrated in the northern Italian pandemic epicentre, but the lesson is that it took multiple months for these early infections to reach critical mass. The Lombardy outbreak wasn’t seeded in the middle of February by Patient 1 from Codogno. All of this mind-numbing discussion of exponential growth has obscured the intriguing fact that the earliest stages of the pandemic, in the absence of all restrictions, unfolded very slowly indeed.

    What a disaster this has been.

    I won’t speak for anyone else. These are my views:

    I mocked St.Ruth because he focused, quite specifically, on Victorians when the Andrews purge was at its height. Regardless of who, and their personal circumstances he derided every single one of them. For not ‘standing, fighting and if necessary falling’, which was also the Faulty mating call at the time.

    The problem with that was that St.Ruth intended to do none of this himself, throwing out offerings like ‘socialism has sat me on my arse’ while not asking, but demanding that everyone stand his way, and fight his way. And no other way.

    I mocked St.Ruth because he took it upon himself to simultaneously portray all Quenthlanders as a warrior poet race, who would never stand for such malarkey. He would brook no argument on this, despite not being a Queenslander himself.

    I mocked him for using SovCit terminology again and again in his daily epistles, and his hectoring from afar. When questioned he held up the Convoy* as proof of his ability to lead the dumber common man onto the path of wisdom, and I further mocked him for saying ‘I’ve had guns pulled on me by the Feds’ which turned out to be anything but the case, by his own admission.

    I also mocked him for his stories about carrying a hard copy of the Constitution in his truck (which turned out to be not his truck) and waving it at anyone with the scent of TyRannY about them while threatening to ram border checkpoints in someone else’s truck.

    I mocked him for his lightning-quick clinging to nutters including Faulty and Bosi (although to his credit, he says he’s ditched them both – although he still uses language straight from the A1 ‘despatches’).

    I mocked him for demanding everyone else throw their livelihoods and businesses they worked their entire lives for in the bin on his say so, while he went to work – thus enabling the same TyRannY.

    I mocked him for branding everyone in the country who did not resist exactly the way he wanted them to as traitors, before wishing blood clots and death upon them.

    Every towering Matterhorn of a statement he thunders from the pulpit morphs into, under the bulb of casual scrutiny, a suburban BMX track.

    And perhaps most importantly, the Most Reverend St. Ruth Thunberg had the colossal temerity to set out how and why I should commemorate Anzac Day.

    There’s more, but this is the guts of it.

    Israel Prepares To Launch Giant Missile And Aircraft Detection Blimp Dubbed “Sky Dew” (4 Nov)

    On Nov. 3, 2021, the Israeli Air Force announced it is about to deploy its balloon-mounted radar system with advanced missile and aircraft detection. The blimp, one of the world’s largest according to the official statements, has completed the final testing and will soon be deployed in the north of the country (the exact location and date were not specified), to beef up the air defenses in a region where Israel has observed a “proliferation of Iranian drones and cruise missiles“.

    Observation balloons are back, now with radar. Nice reuse of old tech, especially since the IDF have local air superiority to protect it by.

    Just a heads up for residents of Trashdanistan thinking of heading to the country or interstate, particularly SA.
    Our little town has seen a boom in prices of, I reckon 20% – 25% this year, and the ‘time on market’ is plummeting. Rural properties typically used to sit for three months or longer before selling. Houses are now selling within 2-3 days of listing, at or above the top of the quoted range.
    We are not a million miles from the SA border, and I think it is probably spilling over into South East SA.

    Arrested on his way to Fiji.

    Definitely a tip-off.
    No way was his stop, & subsequent search of his USBs & hard drives a “random” stop.

    However, what am I missing here:
    He was charged with having almost 50,000 images of solo children (i.e. no pairs of children & no other people in the photo) on his various USB/drives.
    There were no images of children being abused, molested, or otherwise interfered with.
    One, and only one (1) of those images was of a child with no clothes on.

    So why’d he get so long in the calaboose & such a stern barking at from the judge?

    err, on the subject of the Bosi.

    He was a personage I presumed was a “mate” and was capable of low level incursions into big stupid braindead lamestream mass meeja shibboleths. To paraphrase, about the Croempverts: “I wouldn’t trust her to feed my dog”.

    I’ve seen the man hold an audience on a figurative string, among gliberals such as the Yabbott, Molan and Craigo Kelly. The room was spellbound when the Bosi was expounding. He was the only one who gauged the mood in the room.

    How he’s managed in the interim to fall off the flat edge of the earth, I have my hypotheses about. It may involve a certain loved one in his family. Which means we should stop squawking triumphantly and think about how happy we’d be if it happened to us.

    John is joined by Frank Furedi, Emeritus Professor of Sociology at the University of Kent, for a fascinatingly broad Direct interview.

    Frank unpacks where he thinks society has gone wrong – blindly focusing on ‘safety’, setting our children up to fail in various ways, replacing traditional morality, unduly growing the role of the state and much more. From Big Tech to universities to Covid-19, no topics are off-limits.

    Frank Furedi is Emeritus Professor of Sociology at the University of Kent. He is the author of 25 books, including most recently ‘100 Years of Identity Crisis: Culture War Over Socialisation’. He regularly comments on radio and TV in the UK, and has been interviewed by the media in Australia, Canada, the United States, Poland, Holland, Belgium and Germany.

    A long-time friend of the program, Frank was one of John’s earliest

    Stop the sophistry.

    I wrote “images of .. children” – This is not the same meaning as harmless images.

    Do you think he got 14 months for possession of grade six school photos?

    No. However I struggle with what it was about the images got him thrown into the Ironbar Motel + such a rebuke from Hizzoner.

    I am mindful that a great pile of the charges (or evidence) against Rolf Harris was “thousands of images of women, found on his computer”

    Turns out that’s exactly what they were, images of women. The charges were bullshit, withdrawn at the commencement of the trial, coz there was nothing suss about the images, & they were mentioned with ominous overtones & “possibly” of children, purely to taint the jurors minds.

    I acutely conscious of the depravity & evil of the legal profession, & the wanton indifference of the judicial fraternity.

    An 1895 8th-grade exam from Salina, Kansas, provides vivid illustration of how far our schools have descended from “the 3 Rs” of reading, writing and arithmetic, to three very different R-words. Bill Whittle explains the consequences of re-focusing schools on indoctrination, an investment of learning time which holds little to no value in the marketplace. He adds a fourth R.

    But what a burden you and family have with what certainly seems to be an inherited predisposition to inflammatory bowel conditions. I know what incredible discomfort they can cause & how difficult they are to get back under control. My very great sympathy.

    Thanks, Vicki. Thankfully, it’s not the dreaded Crohn’s Disease, nor any unspecified Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) with me though, nor any parasitic hangover from travels or fruit trees (parasitology is what we used in the MPH to call the last resort of the diagnostically desperate, lol). It’s definitely a specific focal infection for each instance, can be palpated abdominally when at its peak, and is curable for a given attack with an antibiotic (different types can be trialled, including those that work against anaerobic bacteria). I could go for many years without an attack, then out of the blue another would happen. Without antibiotics is when it gets difficult, as the inflammatory response kicks in and generalises. It can also be masked by a recurring Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) such as I got in hospital this year thanks to incompetent catheter nursing. Getting antibiotics was usually no problem while my Big Sis was still practicing medicine, for I’d call her for a script and thus it was done and dusted. She’s retired now though and doesn’t keep up a Provider Number nor medical insurance.

    Without my sweet ‘well woman’ gynaecologist, who extended her whole person view beyond her remit to diferentially diagnose and treat me and who will ensure I get appropriately referred, I think I might have gone under this time. Youse all may have noted a few depressive comments, if so, sorry ’bout that. I said to Hairy tonight I thought a few times I was on my way out, and he replied you think I didn’t think that and had to do something.

    To exist on this planet is to be blessed with “inflammatory bowel conditions” when contemplating those that think they have some right to rule over us.

    Enough. Get those tumbrils a’ rollin’, I tells ya! 🙂

    The pre-antibiotic days must have been hell on wheels. Various forms of gut inflammation took a lot of people out – armies were particularly prone to epidemic dysentries. Longshanks comes to mind as one of those felled by dysentry. Then obstructive gut infections and disorders, such as mine, or appendicitis.

    Then we move to the top half of the body – the liver, heart and lungs. Full of bugs thriving in conditions of poor human nutrition and sanitation. Even without zoonotic introduced epidemic diseases. The immune system struggling to keep up and so often not making it at least but making survivors stronger. Not to mention issues with the bones, circulatory system and specially the head. So much to go wrong.

    After that, you could of course just go mad.

    I’m glad to day we have modern medicine and dentistry. And quite a few competent doctors even though you might have to take trouble to seek them out.

    Forgot to mention bumping uglies, and all that medically pertains to that.
    On second thought, best not. 🙂

    just goes to show that a bioweapon does not need to be particularly deadly to be extremely effective.

    IIRC, Bioweaponry is classified as a psychological weapon rather than a killing one.

    The most unused resource we have available in the modern world is the generation who have retired.
    They have skills, knowledge of what works and what doesn’t, and they are slowly dying, of loneliness and grief, as ignorant graduates of the Marxist systems of social deconstruction teach our children how to view the world through a distorted prism of politics.
