  1. “Green says the count in Brisbane will exclude the four lowest-polling candidates first.

    “This will determine an order for the final three candidates: LNP, Labor and the Greens,” he said.

    “The preference count shown here uses a preference estimate for the first four exclusions provided to me by scrutineers. That is running at 35.1 per cent to Greens, 15.6 per cent to Labor and 49.3 per cent to LNP.””

  2. Struth, given your views, I’m surprised you believe elections matter. Assuming you’re right, they don’t need to cheat to win elections as they’ll get what they want anyway.

    Socialists always need to maintain a brainwashed majority of the population.
    Or at least a number who will ensure division in society.
    You know this OCO….or you did.

    Ask yourself why they hold the theatre of elections in Socialist countries.

    Again, at one time you knew the answer.

    But in comes Sancho with an obsession against Clive as if Clive has some photos of him without his undies on……….

    This isn’t about Clive.
    It’s about all the smaller parties pushing for freedom.

    So try and keep your hang ups about one fat bloke aside for a second and ask yourself, what was most likely going to happen after the last two years?

    Everyone votes out Socialism, and the socialists accept the result because they always play fair.

    What planet are you guys on?

    You can vote Socialism and communism in, but you can’t vote it out.
    Even when they hold elections.
    Funny that.

    Next thing you’ll be telling me they all got the guilts for ignoring the constitution and bringing in the NWO agenda of the Davos mobsters and have offered themselves to the courts for the people to decide their fates.

  5. The Victorian Greens have accused the Andrews government of sleepwalking towards a health crisis

    True, but not in the way they think.

    Ramping crisis in Melbourne’s hospital system ‘not unusual’ says Ambulance Victoria (11 May)*

    Alarming figures show ambulance ramping rise in QLD (26 May)

    I thought it amusing that Labor went full health system champion in the election campaign when they were manifestly failing abjectly in the Labor states. Numerous signs in my electorate that “only Labor can maintain after hours GP access!” Yet ambulance ramping is um, rampant in Yarragrad and Polygirlistan.

    * There’s also a story in the Hun today too, but since it’s paywalled I’ve linked an early Nein News one instead.

  6. Speaking of close electoral counts, it just proves how every vote can count (although it actually doesn’t usually matter).

    99% of Cats know of my tainted Labor history and how I worked for a regional MP who was a Minister on the other side as well… every Sunday after an election he’d be in (and won) he’d have the local maps out of towns and suburbs in his electorate, and he’d be door knocking from Day 1 for four years. Did it every, single, day (except the usual family holiday times).

    He gathered, if he could knock on 30 doors a day, he could get close to the 40K-50K voters he needed to reach… That’s how you stay in Parliament for well over a decade!

  9. Just watching The Five and their analysis of the obscene failure by the school and police authorities before and during the Texas school shooting. What they know is the bastard went in an unlocked door at the back of the school. There was no armed guards or initial contact between the bastard and any security. After he entered the class-room and started shooting local police were on the scene within 4 minutes and entered the school. They were fired at by the bastard and retreated outside while the bastard continued to shoot. They waited outside and did nothing for an hour, a fucking hour until a Swat team arrived entered the class room immediately and shot dead the bastard. During that hour distraught parents were prevented from going into the school to assist what may have been badly wounded children who could possibly have been saved within that hour period.

    During all this the demorat scum and anti-gun rats have been blaming gun culture. These are the same scum who have overseen a breakdown in social values so that the diseased young men who do these deeds are not removed from society. All of the recent shooters have been under 20, of all ethnic groups, black, chunk, white and hispanic, left a record of declared intentions and psychological problems which were ignored. But more then that the same scum have overseen a breakdown of the family unit so that all these young diseased young men had no father figure in their life.

  10. Trees are not trimmed back. I will be driving from Lithgow to Orange and there are vast numbers of signs that you are required to obey that are hidden by branches of trees – speed limits, warnings of lanes merging, etc.

    My first ever car accident at speed was due to this. Bus blocked the traffic lights on the right, with tree branches blocking those on the left. I saw them green, then they changed to amber when I couldn’t see them. Suddenly cars are starting to cross and I’m doing 60kph. Not injured, but a complete wrote off. There are two sets of lights for a reason.

  15. With every school shooting, the pantomime cranks up again. All of the usual suspects start caterwauling about how this must be the last straw, that now something simply must be done, dialling up the emotional appeals to eleventy. And it’s always going to meet a wall of implacable resistance. There are way too many gun owners who are hyper-opposed to the merest whiff of federal efforts to curb 2A. I don’t blame them, given that those claiming to merely seek ‘sensible’ and ‘responsible’ gun ownership law reform are thoroughly disingenuous.

  17. From Dover’s link above:

    The active shooter situation, you want to stop the killing, you want to preserve life, but also one thing that – of course, the American people need to understand — that officers are making entry into this building. They do not know where the gunman is. They are hearing gunshots.

    They are receiving gunshots. At that point, if they proceeded any further not knowing where the suspect was at, they could’ve been shot, they could’ve been killed, and that gunman would have had an opportunity to kill other people inside that school.

    “That gunman would have had an opportunity to kill other people inside that school.” Wow. So they left him there for an HOUR. Bit of an opportunity there I reckon. FMD

    The town of Banana has quite a nice pub.

  29. It would now appear (as mentioned by quite a few, and rightly so) that the Texas cops waited. For an hour. This is exact opposite of training in law enforcement delivered in Western countries after the Broward County shooting a few years back.

    The active shooter situation, you want to stop the killing, you want to preserve life, but also one thing that – of course, the American people need to understand — that officers are making entry into this building. They do not know where the gunman is. They are hearing gunshots.

    Correct. The mantra is ‘stop the killing, and stop the dying’. That is what they are there for.

    They are receiving gunshots. At that point, if they proceeded any further not knowing where the suspect was at, they could’ve been shot, they could’ve been killed, and that gunman would have had an opportunity to kill other people inside that school.

    Cowardly horseshit. That is not what they are there for. Whether the cops get killed is not the point. They are (supposed to be) there for other people.

    This explanation, whenever it comes, had better have sparkles on it. Not that it will be good enough, even then.

    While Shanghai remains under lockdown, the outbreak continues to worsen in Beijing. Authorities are escalating their controls. Many neighborhoods have adopted closed management. Couriers and delivery workers are prohibited from entering.

    If we really wanted to get back at the Communists, we could let the rumour float that the spray is just scented water with no antiviral/antibacterial properties whatsoever.

    It’s just like the Parkland school shooting. There’s a lot of truth in the maxim that ‘when seconds count, the police are only minutes away’. However, in cases like these, it turns out that when the police literally are seconds away, well….they may as well be on the Moon. You’re on your own. But keep dialling the emergency number, as I’m sure yet another operator will appreciate hearing the screams of victims being blown away by someone who clearly didn’t notice the ‘gun free zone’ signs.

    1. they dived for cover when the shooter plinked a few rounds in their general direction
    2. they had to do this coz being shot puts officers in danger
    3. they called for lotsa support, snipers, swat, etc. so it’s not the local coppers fault.
    4. the police were busy forcibly keeping parents away from the school, so it’s not as if they weren’t doing anything while they waited for backup.
    5. the shooter was contained in just the one classroom – so no big deal anyway.
    6. Most of the gunfire was done early in the piece (presumably the gunman ran out of targets) this means there wasn’t much to gain by engaging with him anyway.
    7. the bloke who did turn up & shoot the killer was grazed himself on the scalp, this proves the gunman was dangerous & the Deputies did the right thing by hiding from him.

    The facts seem to be:
    1. the gunman was firing for Twelve minutes before he entered the building.

  66. Roger, I’ve seen that visa condition breached at least ten times, possibly much more.
    I’ve never seen it enforced. One immigration agent assures me he’s seen it enforced twice, however he’s seen far more breaches & far worse breaches, than I’ve seen, without any enforcement.

    Immi usually flatly refuse to enforce, and become quite hostile toward anyone who reminds them of breaches, especially if they provide evidence of significant breach.

    Immi were quite hot tempered toward me – empty threat, though I did cease contacting the “Visa Breach Team”, & sometimes wonder what would have happened had I pushed the issue any further.

    The shop next door to me were subjected to an obtuse & intrusive audit by Immi, however they had provided rock solid evidence of deliberate breach – thus in Immi’s eyes had to be punished, and so they were.

    ‘The police were doing nothing,’ Angeli Rose Gomez told the Wall Street Journal.

    ‘They were just standing outside the fence. They weren’t going in there or running anywhere.’

    Gomez has two children in second and third grade and she said she drove 40 miles to the school after hearing of the attack. She was one of the desperate parents who encouraged police with increasing urgency to enter the school.

    Eventually, federal marshals put Gomez in handcuffs and told her she was under arrest for intervening in an active investigation, the Wall Street Journal reported.

    Six serving members of the Irish Guards have been arrested by military police on suspicion of supplying illegal drugs, money lending and money laundering.

    The Irish Guards are due to lead the Trooping the Colour next Thursday as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations. Prince William is colonel-in-chief of the regiment.

    A former Coldstream Guardsman was also arrested in an operation carried out on Wednesday morning, the Ministry of Defence said.

    I see that Winston says:

    There is no alternative.

    But I am feeling pessimistic this morning. I think the worse things get the more people will look to ‘governments, them etc’ to ‘fix’ it, and that is exactly the road to perdition – socialism rises again.

    Unless the Liberals can do a smart reverse and destroy the climate cult with as much enthusiasm and reality as they can must. And what is the hope of that right now, as prices rise, electricity falters and wages do not keep pace with anything? Socialism here we come.

    Gather ye rosebuds, I say from the beauty of the pig stye, an indication that things can change after all. We are off to see York Minister, which has survived a lot of eras of stupidity, thus hope always lies there. And the pleasures of the countryside still exist in this beautiful land on a fine Spring morning.

    My dad was Army. I grew up around the green, there was always guard rooms access to weapons, someone within call to authorise a response. These things are standard across the world with standing armies. Nowadays things are much more complex with our BS state gun laws that the Fed’s have never bothered to exempt the ADF totally from.

    Authorising the ADF in a state is well more complex but possible. I spent the first years of my life in Holsworthy, dad was posted there and I still have family in SW Sydney so know the place well. Lucky then Holsworthy had that narrow railway bridge as access or the back gate from Moorebank rd which is well away from anywhere. LOL good luck to some fat Leb’s softened by welfare in that fight though…

    No matter how good these guys are, they’re pushing shit up hill because they’re coming into the situation and trying to sort it out.

    If they go in when they should. Time and time again we’ve seen police trained to varying degrees stall when their time came. This isn’t a criticism of them, it’s a reflection of human nature, the more time you’ve had to think about it, the harder it is to get going.

    This is why CCW is a good idea. Get shit stopped before it starts, and without the stall factor. Human nature is working for the CCW holder, because they’ve had a situation develop around them and are fighting for their life.

  96. A couple of things the wallopers did and said during the Lindt Cafe muslim terrorist attack:

    1 The police commander who held off ordering tactical officers to storm the Lindt cafe until after hostage Tori Johnson was killed has told an inquest gunman Man Haron Monis “had the same rights as anyone else”, prompting the victim’s mother to charge out of the courtroom, calling the officer “an absolute disgrace”.

    2 Six hours into the Lindt cafe siege, while hostages feared for their lives, NSW police launched Operation Hammerhead, deploying officers because they were ­worried about the potential for what they termed “bias crime” against the Muslim community. Just over an hour after Lindt cafe manager Tori Johnson and mother of three Katrina Dawson were killed — Dawson by police gunfire — NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione tasked an assistant commissioner to work with the community on “bias-crime vulnerabilities”.

    CCW with reasonable people doing the carrying allows the bloke/s involved at the time to use instinct and, if any, training (not range training, other training). And common sense.

    A hasty yet planned response will always, always involve someone at the back trying to think thirteen steps ahead so they can negate claims of ‘they went in too quick’ from the family of the soon-to-be-dead shitrat, and their $5K a day barrister at the inquest.

    I remember that night watching Sky and they had Chris Kenny and the execrable resident of Scotland Island on covering the siege, along with some others. Anyway, Ms Scotland Island brought up the shocking, absolutely shocking news she’d just received that some Muslim women on a train had been verbally abused, and how terrible and shocking that news was and that there was a tweet going around #I’ll ride with you and how everybody should retweet that. Well Chris Kenny slapped her down good and hard, stating that there are people being held hostage and that our focus should be with them. But that exchange perfectly encapsulates the left, they’re more concerned with imagined Muslim victims than the real victims held hostage by a Muslim.

    I’ve been wondering about this lately. I don’t think they (the left) care about anyone (the muslims) in particular, it is more about brand differentiation. For want of a better word they view themselves in relation to the bogans, the true object of scorn, and most of their behaviour can be explained as a way of letting everyone know that they are better than that. In other words, twee and solipsistic while superficially exhibiting symptoms of concern.

    Australia’s new Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has led the chorus of praise for The West Australian’s history-making bilingual Noongar-English front page, which marked the start of National Reconciliation Week 2022.

    At the forefront of The West’s special Reconciliation Week wrap on Friday, the front page featured an exclusive interview with Mr Albanese — with the headline and lead paragraph translated into Noongar by linguist Alison Nannup.

    Despite his hectic schedule since winning the Federal election last Saturday, Mr Albanese took to Twitter to express his admiration for the editorial decision.

    “I have been in the papers a lot this week, but this one is particularly special to me: the first Noongar-English bilingual edition of The West Australian for Reconciliation Week,” he wrote.

    We’re sounding like armchair experts, without remembering that as soon as someone kicks in a door, you can count on the bad guy playing his endgame, towards hostages as well as the good guys with guns.
    And, the mistakes that might be made by the good guys with guns, on the bounce, on the move, making decisions on the fly. No amount of training or simulations can iron out the nerves and adrenaline.

  124. Remember that real life isn’t Jack Reacher.

    Don’t agree with your post. Realistic training and significant repetition is central to success. The TAG has a kill house that is rebuilt every night and the doors blasted down every day. They fire thousands of rounds every week. Their training is specific, targeted and superb. If you haven’t seen them you wouldn’t understand. They have simulations of bad and good guys, kids, mothers inside every day and the inside of the house is changed every day. The position and location of all inside people vary every time.

    When they reach a door they place adhesive explosives immediately, turn their back and fire it within 2 seconds and are inside within another 2 seconds. The surprise element is mind blowing and they are firing targeted bullets before anyone in that room even knows what has happened. The whole focus is surprise, endless training and retraining for errors and speed. They are truly the best of the best. Concern about errors or the dangers CANNOT be an element in their thinking. That is not their role.

    Remember that real life isn’t Jack Reacher.

    Don’t agree with your post. Realistic training and significant repetition is central to success. The TAG has a kill house that is rebuilt every night and the doors blasted down every day. They fire thousands of rounds every week. Their training is specific, targeted and superb. If you haven’t seen them you wouldn’t understand. They have simulations of bad and good guys, kids, mothers inside every day and the inside of the house is changed every day. The position and location of all inside people vary every time.

    When they reach a door they place adhesive explosives immediately, turn their back and fire it within 2 seconds and are inside within another 2 seconds. The surprise element is mind blowing and they are firing targeted bullets before anyone in that room even knows what has happened. The whole focus is surprise, endless training and retraining for errors and speed. They are truly the best of the best. Concern about errors or the dangers CANNOT be an element in their thinking. That is not their role

    It was described to me by one bloke as he knew he was ready when he sprinted through the killhouse, went back and checked the targets, and each one had a neat double tap in the head.
    There is a phenomenal amount of practice constantly.
