Technically Rebel isn’t fat. She’s now thin. As to her latest announcement I wonder if it’s a way to get back in with woke Hollywood? I dimly recall she was cancelled for something or other a year or two ago just as she was starting to get big roles.

FTB: My passport lapsed during the great plague and, being slack as slack can be, I did nothing about it. Recently learned that my genetic line will manifest itself in a further generation in September with the expected arrival of a grandaughter, which means I’m going to be gouged for the passport premium to get to Connecticut by October, when I figure the mother-in-law, ex, etc. will be over the novelty and I can have a clear view of the new arrival.

So I’m thinking, it’s taking two months to issue new passports, why not extend existing ones? I’m sure they could be stamped or updated, valid for, say, two years as an emergency measure.

But that probably makes too much sense for Australia.

KD even needs to imagine associations that don’t exist.

Here’s an association that exists.

Faulty: ‘Put your sitting member last’ to the accompaniment of mucho fire and brimstone and Armageddon, which then devolved into ‘well only some of them, the ones I approve of can stay’.

St. SADS, as correctly described earlier this morning:

Only “certain jab recipients” draw the wrath of St Ruth.
Previously it was anyone who took the jab anywhere who were at fault, no matter what their personal reasons, because they were impinging on your FrEedoM (apparently).

St. Ruth – being the guardian of The One True Path and all that – if you could be so kind as to provide a list of approved jabbees, it would be greatly appreciated. I am aware it would take some time away from your primary role of looking for attention (and approval from Furniture Shop management), though.

As I wrote a few days ago, I now understand why revolutions happen.

Once you have a “critical mass” of people who feel they have no stake in society, that society becomes socially and politcally unstable and has to be reinforced with repressive measures by the state security apparatus. Then the social contract is broken and all bets are off.

Blown away.

While Iranian media is known for making outlandish claims, Israelis were doubled over with laughter at the latest news out of Iranian state media that a Mossad commander apparently named “Asa Flots” (which translates to “made a fart” in English) had been assassinated by a drone strike in Erbil, Iraq.

“(Ilak Ron) Asa Flots, commander of the Mossad assassination unit, assassinated [sic] during an attack with kamikaze drone in Erbil, northern Iraq,” IntelSky said in a now deleted tweet.

The Iranian Mehr News Agency then picked up the gassy story and ran with it without apparently fact checking the agent’s name by any Hebrew speakers.

Sounds like someone in Mossad has been having some fun at the expense of Iranian news people.

Iran claims Mossad agent ‘Fart’ killed by drone, laughter ensues (9 Jun)

I was having a chat (debate) with an old lefty mate of mine regarding his Murdoch666 phobia. He couldn’t accept that Murdoch666 has more diversity in his news than their ABC. So I tried a new angle that came to me like an epiphany.

Murdoch is a capitalist who will seek to take advantage of any market where there is a potential win. This is why The Oz is fairly “conservative” but has lots of loons writing for it as well. Murdoch understands that market and a national paper needs to cater for the loons as well as mainstream Oz.

But, the kicker is that Sky is full of extremist loons during the day and conservatives at night. Why?

Murdoch (and Sky) understand that you’re more likely to be at home during the day if you’re a loon (unemployed, student, part-timer) than at night for conservatives (who’d more likely be older and be fully employed).

Makes sense, right? No point putting your conservative presenters on during the day!!! You’d blow your ratings!

I fantasise about the day when a journalist asks a prominent politician – “How many old people and poor people are you prepared to sacrifice to save the planet?”

or

“How much is your quarterly energy bill?”

or

“What proportion of your income do you spend on energy bills?”

or

“Is your workplace heated and airconditioned at no cost to you?”

And so on.

It infuriates me that these pampered wankers are in charge of energy policy. Living as I do in a cooler part of the country, I know that age pensioners and others on fixed incomes, not to mention the working poor, are dreading their heating bills this winter. And, it’s not optional around here, where it can drop to -7C overnight, and days of single figure maxima are routine.

Firewood is very expensive, and anyway many Green infested local authorities are trying to stamp out its use, with some success. The recent bushfires burned 100+ years worth of firewood, but facts have never been relevant in this tussle.

But for a bit of good luck and good management, I might be one of those age pensioners shivering in a draughty rental or a shoddy public housing property this winter. In a country with energy reserves bursting at the seams, it’s unforgiveable.

Re: masks.

Yup.

Locking young/middle aged out of the property market, then deliberately spiking energy prices 9and therefore everything else) is a surefire way to remove the consent of the governed.

Add in some quite blatant “laws are for little people”/ not applicable to certain groups and people also become cranky.

Firewood is very expensive

Got an email from the gas retailer yesterday. Gas price is rising 21% on 1 Jul.

That’s probably as much as they think they can get away with, since their retail tariff is rising to between $23 to $38/GJ (depending on usage) vs the AEMO wholesale price on their website a moment ago of $40/GJ. So they’re losing up to $17/GJ on every GJ they’re selling to retail customers even after the price rise. Crazy.

Hiding in plain sight. None so blind. Shallow cock smokers. The NT News:

AUNTY is back on the Darwin airwaves after two hours of radio silence on Friday morning. ABC Radio Darwin was silence for over two hours on Friday morning, coinciding with the coldest morning of the year.

The popular radio station returned just before 10am. It is understood the ABC was aware of the issue and has informed staff, but has not released any information of their social media about the outage.

Obviously this is the upgrade that allows radio waves to drop the chemtrails. Only sick denialists would pretend otherwise. Don’t say you weren’t warned, traitors.

““How many old people and poor people are you prepared to sacrifice to save the planet?””

It’s a good question and you know what the honest answer is? They don’t care. I know, I live in a Teal electorate full of hypocritical narcissistic scum. They simply don’t care about anyone living west of Darlinghurst. You only have to read Princess Allegra’s campaign line “A Better Climate for Wentworth”…..which would have to be one of the most empty, vacuous, bullshit lines of election wankery ever and it says a lot about this electorate that they voted for this elitist and vacuous bimbo and that they believe this tosh. Oh and the streets of Wentworth are pretty quiet today. Why? Well because many Wentworthians have headed down in their big SUVs (most of which aren’t electric) to Perisher and Thredbo for the opening of the ski season. It’s the June long weekend…..what fun! Hooray! Who cares about elderly and poor people shivering and dying of the cold. Let them eat cake! I need to ski!

Really? Okay, I love Putin! I love Putin! There. Now, can I have my money waterfall now? Or you can drop it by later, that’d be fine.

Typical Western corporate media hit piece. Do they all come from the same source, I wonder. It wouldn’t surprise me if they did. They all read the same, peddle the same smears and accusations and tropes, trot out the same narrative.

I t’s hardly inconceivable. It’s likely what was happening throughout the Covid panicdemic. We had government agencies keen to push their narrative, and what better way than to pass around that day’s Covid articles the evening before to a trusted group of scribblers and dribblers? Feel free to run this under your byline, guys. How many journalists would have an ethical problem with this kind of arrangement? Not many, I’ll bet. They’re fully on board with what they’re putting out, they regard the source as the the gold standard, and you gotta do what you gotta do to keep your job in these hollowed-out legacy media organisations.

Anyway, there are quite a lot of interested parties in the Ukrainian project whose investments are looking increasingly shaky. The Western PR campaign is the one battle space they continue to dominate. For what it’s worth.

I absolutely respected the Italian parishioners I saw masking, hand sanitising and social distancing.

As for the archdiocese, maybe there’s a legal aspect to insisting on vaccination, i don’t know.
They have the right to make whatever decision they consider prudent.

Oil for heating was fucked over by two things in the 70s.
1. The oil embargo made it suddenly very expensive.
2. Bass Strait gas discovery made gas very cheap.

Interestingly, we owned a house outside of NYC when we lived here permanently and the boiler could be switched to either gas or oil. In the 90s, oil was actually cheaper than gas in the US. The place was getting seriously short of gas then.

Vicki, you should be commended for the time you put into researching this issue. I have also put in many hours but not to the depth you appear to have gone to. I feel your time will pay off in the end. The longer this goes on, the more confident I am that the choice to refuse the jab is the right one.

I have been treated as weird by some friends and colleagues for this position. When I question what research they personally did before getting jabbed, they admit they have not done any and tell me that they trust that the authorities know what they are doing. Not sure how that is going to work out for them in the long run.

Here are scum comments that will be responded to with reality that shitful souls can’t handle.

From Choo Choo and a few of the sneerers here trying to justify their submission.

Apparently I was lazy for not taking the jab and therefore not working by being banned from doing so (even though I never went on welfare, and never have my whole life…nor been a public servant like a Vicplod waste of taxpayer funds)

Think about that for just a second.
Think about the level that the shitstains of humanity will lower themselves to justify their own failure.

Is Choo choo dead yet, by the way? he had more jabs than a herion addict.
It won’t be far off by the looks of things.
All completely unnecessary for his survival to take the jabs, and just to keep a union job while Nurses in his state standing up to Tyranny still cannot work.

Complete shithead and a disgusting attitude from a surrendering, soft cock.

Tell me why I shouldn’t laugh at their demise.
Actions have consequences.
And their actions have effected millions, and millions into the future.
All done with an arrogant dismissal of their fellow man.
I see him and the likes of Notafan as nothing less than traitors.

The same Rome she lost her shit over at the start……….so deadly she couldn’t wait to get back there.
Fuck these people.

They are traitors and I will laugh when they very shortly leave this earth.
And I make no apologies for that.
As I said, there are no innocents being attacked by me.
They’ve well and truly shown their colours over the last two years.
And they have harmed millions of Australians holding the line with their selfish attitudes.

Others who are angry and don’t try to justify what they have done or lie about the deadliness of the jab in front of others, who are now realising what has happened, and admit they got brainwashed and are coming out of it, are obviously self reflective and still are not lost and were never evil.

I suggest to you that the likes of Notafan and a few of her mates here, are evil.
Selfish.
Couldn’t give a flying fuck about her nation or her fellow man and will try to twist the truth, outright lie, and continue as she has just done above, excusing the mandating of Catholics in attending Church and singing about god, for example.
She isn’t the only one, just a very good example.

Think about the courage of the jabbed who are presenting you with proof the jab kills.

That’s maturity.
That’s a sane mind.
That is the mind of a realist, someone who isn’t burying their heads in the sand.
An adult.
Someone who has overcome the cognitive dissonnance, the denialism, and is starting to fight back.

They are righting wrongs and they are fighting.

See here’s the thing KD, while you’re fighting me and not the fuckers who poisoned you, you are still in denial.

Heres the most blatant bit of historical rewriting you will ever read compressed into one sentence..
Gruinaid hads an obituary for a useful idiot who was in charge of the CND in Thatchers time.
Totally not a front group for the USSR.
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/jun/09/bruce-kent-obituary

He argued that the Warsaw Pact countries posed little or no threat to the west, that the Soviet Union was in internal meltdown and therefore was unlikely to attack, and that deterrence could never work because it implied the willingness to strike first.

History, since the collapse of the Berlin Wall in 1989, has proved him right:

Yes, we do. Effectively zero. For the same reason I said yesterday, at the level of practice, mask wearing hardly ever followed acceptable protocol.

You think you do, but don’t appear to understand the point. Do masks work if they are properly worn? The point isn’t if we’re wearing them properly or not so stop steering the point to some other area that isn’t being debated. I knew my mask never worked because I rarely wore it properly and I used it for days on end. We’re talking specifically about the science of mask wearing potentially eliminating or reducing risk. We don’t know nor unable to know because it would be fucking impossible to set up an experiment to test the theory. Why is this so difficult for you to appreciate?

If you choose to respond about the ineffective mask wearing then have that discussion with someone else as I’m not interested.

Bourne1879, I wonder if the counsels in the police case in the qld Supreme Court have the temerity to bring to the fore that the judges themselves have been exempt from vaccination yet are being asked to consider whether anyone else may have had a similar right.

You are a subject of the Crown and you have no rights. If the State Government decides to confiscate (i.e. steal) your property, you have no right to compensation. If the State government decides to restrict your liberty in any way, you have no recourse. The case is all about procedureal fairness, not rights.

This is why Morrison set up the Cabinet of State and Federal leaders, so that it could implement these policies that the Commonwealth on its own could not. See also Howard and the Kyoto protocol.

So you’ve been planning it for two years but didn’t think to tee up passports?
And, if they’ve deferred “several times”, how come they are going to lose the lot this time?

JC, all I’m worried about is how masks are used and justified as a matter of public policy. I appreciate your point but it is simply not relevant to whether or not mass mask wearing makes a difference. Ignoring how it is used as a matter of practice when that is all that really matters when you are trying to argue that we don’t and cannot really know because of this or that confounding factor (age, health, etc.) makes no sense.

Fair enough, but that wasn’t what Uncle Fester was posting. Fester reckons the science of mask says they can’t work. She has no idea if it’s scientifically true or not. She argues droplets are thinner than the spaces in masks, but that simplistically suggests all water droplets are the similar dimension. They aren’t.

Look Dover, if other people were using masks like I was, then there was zero chance they worked. 🙂

Does anyone still use heating oil? We used to have a 200l tank in the garage growing up and it would get filled up once a year before winter.

They suddenly became very unfashionable in the mid-70’s.

Yep, had that in my large group house in Canberra in the mid 70s. Worked a treat, too – a large open plan living area with lots of uncovered windows, but it kept us warm. We had to fill it up two or three times each winter, though. It wasn’t exactly cheap, but it was affordable. I’d hate to be paying to heat that space today.

In those days, thanks to the Snowy scheme, Canberra had the cheapest electricity in the country. In another huge cold bedroom, I used to leave a 2 bar radiator on all night while I slept. It cost three fifths of a poofteenth, and luckily I didn’t get burned to death in an electrical fire.

It is astonishing because this is happening in the “land of the free” which notionally has a free press.

Not a good idea to let the passport expire for too long. I had an out of date one that exceeded the time limit (10 years I think) and at that point you are not able to use it as ID to get a renewal. Found myself in the position of not being able to prove I was an Australian without original naturalisation documentation that was not in my possession and sitting in a box (interstate) somewhere from the seventies. At such times it becomes apparent how maliciously unhelpful the bureaucracy can be when it wants.

On face nappies, there is overwhelming evidence that they serve no useful purpose, regardless of whether they’re worn correctly or not.

However, what I do find absolutely unacceptable is that people were compelled to wear them in the first place. I have always regarded them as a physical assault on my person by the state and the simple fact is no stupid stinking political fascist imbecile ever had any right to force people to wear the f*cking useless ridiculous things. There’s still a face nappie mandate in place on public transport in Sydney, FFS.

Forcing people to wear face nappies was never about “science” and it was never about “safety”. It was solely about the twin concepts of humiliation and control of the populace.

1. The company hasn’t banned factual reporting on energy policy.

2. News Corp commercial management has taken a decision to campaign, independent of the company’s journalists, for renewable energy.

3. By taking the leftist position on renewables etc, News Corp management is taking the position supported by 90%+ of its journalists, leftists who would never dream of thinking for themselves and therefore violating leftist tribal rules (which require absolute, unquestioned conformity).

Therefore, you can continue to get credible reporting on climate/energy policy in News Corp outlets, even though the company’s commercial management is campaigning for renewables and, by default, higher electricity prices.

Heres the best information, from the 2019 Australian government pandemic plan on masks.

Healthcare settings
High-quality evidence to support the use of PPE in healthcare settings is scarce. Although some studies indicate a benefit of surgical masks and respirators in preventing influenza infection, many studies show no significant benefit from their use. Healthcare workers show varying levels of compliance with the use of surgical masks and respirators. As the effectiveness of masks and respirators is particularly dependent on compliance and correct usage, low compliance has been cited by one systematic review as the likely cause of the low effectiveness of masks and respirators demonstrated by some studies

And thats in healthcare settings, what about the general public.

High-quality evidence to support the use of PPE in community settings is scarce. Although some studies support the benefit of surgical masks and respirators in preventing influenza infection, many studies show no significant benefit from their use.


Use of face masks and respirators in Initial Action stage.. Whole population
Resource implication… Massive
Pros: May reduce community transmission. If high adherence, may delay epidemic peak or decrease epidemic size. May empower population* (ability to take personal protective action).
Cons: Requires enormous stockpile. Major logistical difficulties of distribution. Large resources required for risk communication on how to use masks appropriately. Huge amounts of waste created. May lead to disregard of other protective actions (e.g. hand hygiene or social distancing) through feeling of being protected
Notes
Limited evidence to support this measure.
• Compliance unlikely to be high unless severity is high.
• No culture of mask wearing in Australia.
• Type of mask (respirator or surgical mask) needs to be defined.
• If inadequate stocks, homemade masks could be used; large effort required to communicate how to make and use homemade masks.

In effect evidence is poor.

In the face of this, I find it difficult not to be resentful of the spite and derision levelled at the unvaccinated who have refused to submit to a process that, to them, seemed possibly fatal. On the other hand, I have the utmost sympathy for those who, in spite of their own reservations, were required to submit to vaccination to keep their employment and provide for their families. There is no question that these people should be supported.

Thanks Vicki. I agree with pretty much all of your comment except the bit I have bolded. I have watched the opposite happening here, possibly because I’m looking at it from the other side of the vaccination coin.

You have not been called names and your integrity questioned. How could it? You are a sensible, kindly person. Perhaps you haven’t noticed that I have been called “insane” and cowardly and my words “atrocious behaviour”. All because I am vaccinated.

None of the vaccinated contributors to this blog have called the unvaccinated names. Not one. Some, including me, have pushed back against the shrill, demented denouncing by one commenter. Most of them with humour but for some the whole miserable thing is wearing wafer thin.

There are many unvaccinated people here who comment, and they have my respect, not because of a chemical they either have or do not have in their systems, but because of their good character that has remained consistent throughout. Ditto the vaccinated.

Losing a SCOTUS Justice to assassination & rapid insertion of a Biden choice onto the bench, that’s one conspiracy theory too far.

For that theory to hold water, you’d first have to see the White House & Fed govt allowing mobs to turn up at the homes of SCOTUS justices and there to unfiltered public conversation about killing one or more judges.

Just imagine elected officials of the federal US government inciting a mob to riot outside where public officials are housed, chanting that they want to hang one in particular, to achieve their seditious aims of overthrowing the democratic system. I imagine if that ever happened, you lot would condemn those politicians in the strongest possible terms.

Treasury boss’s quiet message: Higher taxes are the cure for our budget blues
Ross Gittins
Economics Editor
Sure, but how do you get the deficit down? The government will be reviewing all the spending programs left by the Coalition, looking for savings. But what savings it finds will mainly be used to pay for Labor’s promised new spending.

So the main way to improve the budget balance will be by “raising additional tax revenues”. Kennedy implied that this would be done by reducing businesses’ and households’ tax concessions.

And this, this is where we are.

Ardern says consensus on climate is ‘good for our region and good for the world’
By Katina Curtis

Further from joint Anthony Albanese and Jacinda Ardern press conference, Ardern says she is heartened by Australia’s new position on climate change, saying the issue is the number one threat for the Pacific.

“It is good for our region and good for the world when we work collaboratively on this extraordinary challenge,” she said.

“So it’s incumbent on us to do our bit. I know with regards to New Zealand we have a lot more to do, but we welcome being joined on that journey by Australia.”

Albanese says he feels like Australia “has got out of the naughty corner” in terms of the international reaction to what it was doing on climate.

We’ve been in the naughty corner for nine years. And the consequences of that, we are feeling right now with the energy crisis that is here in this country,” he says.

Weak as water!

Anthony Albanese says he will seek to “work through” the concerns of Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern surrounding the deportation of New Zealanders who commit crimes in Australia.

Ms Ardern has repeatedly criticised the harsh implementation of Section 501 of the Migration Act which deports New Zealand citizens who commit crimes in Australia regardless of how long they have spent across the ditch.

The Prime Minister said his counterpart had been “very forceful” in her views and flagged the policy’s implementation would be considered. More

“We have listened to those views. We will work through some of those issues between now, and we’ll have a ministerial meeting, a leaders’ meeting, coming next month,” he told reporters on Friday.“And we’ll work through with our department, work through the implementation of the way that section 501 has been dealt with. But we’ve listened to the concerns and there’s more work to do.”

The most troubling aspect of masking the human face is that it diminishes the human reality of a face to the point of enabling that humanity to be denied.

Emmanuel Levinas has it that the commandment, ‘Thou shalt not kill’, is inescapably revealed upon the encounter with the Imago Dei most essentially present in the face of another. As a Shoa survivor, he knew a fair bit about the denial of humanity in another.

In the most radical of terms, there is the promise of that face to face meeting which is the beatitude in seeing the Face of God.

“There’s a lot of major things we’ve done,” Biden claimed. “But what we haven’t done is we haven’t been able to communicate it in a way that is magnified another way.”

“Well see, that’s kind of perfect—” Kimmel agreed as Biden continued to ramble.

“Look how the press has changed. Look how the press is it has changed,” Biden said, before he started making up words. ” I know you get—you overstand [sic] it. You don’t just understand it, you overstand. But here’s the deal. One of the things is that it’s very difficult now, to have a… even… with notable exceptions, even a really good reporters, they have to get number clicks on… on… nightly news. So instead of asking the question, anyway, it just, everything gets… gets sensationalized… in ways… but I’m convinced we can get through this. We have to get through it. And one of the things, look—”

“I’m going to take a break,” Kimmel interrupted, clearly seeing Biden was glitching and wasn’t able to complete a coherent idea. “and then we’ll talk a little bit more.”

Earlier today BoN gave Titus 3:10 as a reason why he doesn’t give an answer. Presuming that some of his interlocutors are too devise and troublesome to answer.
While not wanting to start a stoush or do anything to disturb the bonhomie and wit here, I do wonder Bruce whether you are misunderstanding the Bible here.

As a Christian myself who values Scripture, I think Titus 3 is talking about divisive people in the church. It’s to be dealt with in house. He is not talking about discussions with people in the community or on a forum.
My understanding of St Paul is that he argued and debated with people from Antioch to Athens. He talks about renouncing secret and shameful ways and setting forth the truth plainly 2 Cor 4:2.
Whether you answer JC, Sanchez or anyone else is your business of course, but I think it is fair to say that the Bible gives us no mandate for that. Appreciate much of what you say Bruce, but was a little puzzled by that.

A version of the mid-life crisis but clothed in moral righteousness rather than the personal selfishness which usually characterises these personal shifts.

These people are generally drifters, motoring along in neutral for most of their lives.

Once they find a cause, though, it consumes them. In their eyes, they feel as though they now have a purpose – and that their life can now be validated. Their existence will mean something, whereas before it was just average and beige.

They’ll hold onto that cause until the end of time, regardless of whether said cause becomes the monstrosity initially thought. They will gather fellow travellers (cause-seekers, as above) and convince themselves that a) they are right, b) that they and only they can see what’s really going on, and c) that they are beholden to crusade under their self-made banner for ever and ever.

Russia recorded the largest current-account surplus since at least 1994, as revenues from oil and gas exports surged and imports plunged after the U.S. and its allies imposed sanctions over President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

Gillon McPolo-Pony examines his navel to find out why no one is going to the footy. Still getting bigger crowds than the Big Bash League and AFLW.

Pity we did not have CNN covering the Salem witch trials.

I had a deep thougt or 2 after watching ‘the witch”

Its easy for us to sniff at the superstitions and beliefs of the era but imagine this.

You are brought up where witchcraft is accepted as real.
There are trials where people confess to engaging in witchcraft on a fairly regular basis.
People can sicken and die/ have limbs go corrupt etc for no known reason, and if they survived maybe it was because they made a pact with the devil/ or their mother did etc.

Imagine you are a mother, your kid has diphtheria or some other common but usually fatal condition.
You pray and pray but the kid gets sicker.
You believe if you sell your soul to satan the kid will get better.
You do so using whatever knowledge you have gleaned from the trials you have heard about.
The kid gets better..

You find a couple of like minded people who think the reason “x” happened was because they had done the same…
Someone dobs you in, you confess, after all you actually believe powers from beyond assisted you.
it would be a self perpetuating cycle of awfulness.

As much as it seems stupid its got parallels in Aboriginal ritruals, where because everyone knew what caused things, and every bit of “knowledge” supported that, some horrible absurdities retarded society for thousands of years.
