55% of WA’s exports go to China, compared with c. 12% of QLD’s.

That’s a market that could be closed tomorrow if Xi decides to implement CCP foreign policy re Taiwan, contracts notwithstanding.

We will need to fight hard on this issue.

I’m waiting for any referendum campaign to get onto the subject of reparations. I’m standing by my claim that, given that Australia was claimed in the name of His Majesty, George 111, and there’s nothing in the Constitution on the subject, the British Crown should pay the bill for reparations.

Tip: If you are roughed up by a constable in an anti vax protest claim you are Aboriginal to get any action at all.

When I was arrested at the Canberra protests, they asked me if I identified as ‘aboriginal or torres strait islander’

I said ‘yes

They said ‘which’

I said ‘both’

They said ‘both’??

I said ‘yes, both’.

They looked doubtful, but did ask if I wanted a visit from the aboriginal liason officer.

I feel guilty – I added to the number of incarcerated Indigenes by one, but on the other hand, they did give me a private room for my stay!

Data collected! CCP’s live-fire drills reveal the plan of how to take Taiwan by force/Pelosi -Taiwan
China Insights
239K subscribers

Most likely, to comfort this group of emotionally devastated Pinks, the CCP announced live-fire military exercises in six areas around Taiwan from noon on August 4 to noon on August 7. Why say so? See, the timing is to avoid Pelosi’s stay in Taiwan. If she hadn’t left Taiwan, with military drills of such a scale, it might have endangered her plane which might lead to big problems.
Regarding the CCP’s three-day live-fire military exercise around Taiwan, Hong Kong veteran media personality Yang Jinlin tweeted, “What’s the difference between one day and three days?” A netizen replied, ” Just play a little longer, and have all the data collected by the U.S. military.”

If you are so inclined watch The China Show on youtube, the same chaps who created ADV China. Internally China appears to have some very serious problems with banks failing and no bail outs no reserve so the people lose their money. Food shortages are also occurring, protests are growing.

I don’t know how accurate the two chaps are and they probably are overstating the problems but I think the CCP is very much preoccupied with internal stability and these recent military displays are for the domestic base. The CCP warned of big trouble with the visit but all they did was burn a few hundred millions dollars on a fireworks display.

Unfortunately they have the Joe Rogan effect; Lots of blather between good content.

So the Victorian Liberals have decided to support an emissions target higher than the Federal Labor government. You have to wonder why such a suicidal decision was made, I suppose there a few reasons, one is that Groundhog Guy and his motley crew think such a decision will stave off Labor and any prospective “STeals” who challenge. One of the Victorian Liberal MPs (alas there aren’t many) who’s pushed this is the current member for “Brighton”, a man named “James Newbury” who, it was revealed last week, was spied having lunch with Svengali Simon himself, presumably a cosy chat over red wine and some stuffed zucchini flowers, so as to persuade Svengali Simon that the Liberals will happily sell their souls to him so long as he doesn’t field “Teal” candidates in any of the few remaining Liberal held blue ribbon state seats.

Sadly, selling your soul to Svengali Simon doesn’t persuade him to back off, in fact it probably does the opposite, it empowers him, as evidenced by the disastrous federal results in May, when the Liberals lost all their “net zero emissions” MPs, so the news is that Svengali Simon is now advertising for “STeal” candidates for the Victorian state election due in November, specifically to run in the electorates of Kew and wait for it……Brighton.

How Baz Luhrmann Made Australia Look Like Memphis to Film “Elvis”

Ahead of the movie’s worldwide release on June 24, let’s explore where “Elvis” was filmed.

Was “Elvis” Filmed at Graceland Mansion?

Despite Graceland being the famous residence of Presley for several years, Luhrmann did not choose the property as a backdrop for scenes in the film. Instead, the principal photography and shooting of the film took place somewhere quite unexpected, one could argue.

Where Was “Elvis” Filmed?

“Elvis” was filmed in Queensland, Australia. Production of the film took place in the Gold Coast region of Queensland, which sits slightly south of Brisbane along the country’s eastern coast. Regarding the film’s location, Luhrmann, an Australian native, told Australian radio station ABC, “Putting it bluntly, we’ve really fallen in love with the Gold Coast as a place, the people of the Gold Coast, and also the creative energy of the Gold Coast.”

Despite the production of the film taking place across the globe from Presley’s home country, Luhrmann and the production team worked hard to replicate the singer’s past residences, including the notable Graceland estate. According to Vogue, “Luhrmann fully recreated the Colonial Revival mansion in a Queensland studio, along with the sets for Elvis’s Las Vegas performances in the late ’60s and early ’70s.”

While “Elvis” may have been filmed away from the late musician’s home country and state, it still captures the essence of his roots and the places he cherished so dearly. Watch the extraordinary life of Presley in “Elvis,” which hits theatres on June 23.

Lidia Thorpe defends ‘colonising’ Queen comments

Greens Senator Lidia Thorpe has responded to the controversy around her swearing in, when she referred to the Queen as “the colonising her majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second”, saying that Australia needs to face its history and establish a treaty with First Nations people “to genuinely mature as a nation”.

“[The Queen’s] whole wealth has been responsible for killings around the world of First Nations people. And that was through the Commonwealth and the colonising regime, violent regime that they inflicted on many sovereign nations around the world,” Thorpe told ABC Radio Melbourne today.

“The world is talking about this country, it’s embarrassing that we do not have a treaty. We’re the only Commonwealth country in the world that does not have a treaty with its first people.

“We need to get up with the times. I’m not going into parliament and being like everybody else and taking years and years and years to get action. I’m going to speak truth and yes, truth hurts. And I’m sorry that people are hurting. But it is truth and we have to face up to it to genuinely mature as a nation.

“Everything that you see deaths in custody, incarceration, suicide, removal of children, homelessness, drunkenness, all that you see, for First Nations people in this country the oldest continuing living culture in the world, they are the symptoms of colonisation, they are symptoms of genocide.

“That’s what we are still facing in our own country today. And we need to come to terms with that. We need more truth telling, and we need a treaty.”

She also outlined other things she is seeking to achieve or has already achieved in parliament, including ensuring “no public money is going to any fossil fuel companies” and establishing an inquiry into missing and murdered Aboriginal women and children.

“We need a treaty.” Yeah, right Lidia.

“Whitefella won. Blackfella lost.

I have come across many Filipina wives and girlfriends dotted throughout the various mining towns and camps in NorWest WA.

Many of these are “ticket brides”, brought out from the Phillipines by marriage agents targeting lonely single blokes working the mines.

Without generalising too much, a big percentage of these women are decent types who put up with harsh and lonely conditions pursuing a better life, but there is also a significant number who are avaricious dishonest sluts who clean out some poor smitten fools bank account and are gone into the melting pot in the big cities as soon as the bank account has hit zero.

Very sad to see some big ugly miner heartbroken when finding his house cleaned out, his bank account raided and his “loving” bride in the wind.

Leave me alone: Jacinta Nampijinpa Price pleads with ‘bully’ Peter FitzSimons

Woke columnist Peter FitzSimons bombarded Jacinta Nampijinpa Price with a series of late-night text messages making legal threats against the Indigenous senator, ­insisting her account of an interview, in which she felt bullied and berated by him, was “nonsense” and should be retracted.

Senator Price says FitzSimons, a republican and author of popular history, “bullied” her via text after she accused him on Facebook of being aggressive during a phone interview for his Nine Entertainment newspaper column. She later pleaded with him to leave her alone after he bombarded her with texts demanding she change her tune.

In the published interview, FitzSimons, a former rugby player from Sydney’s wealthy north shore, seems perplexed by Senator Price, a Warlpiri woman, over her reasoning and opposition to the Indigenous voice.

The NT senator said that during their phone interview last Thursday, FitzSimons accused her of “giving racists a voice” because of her position on the voice to parliament and support for Australia Day being marked on January 26.

In text messages to The Australian, an agitated FitzSimons ­declared her account of the conversation “was not a matter of interpretation”. “Complete and utter DEFAMATORY nonsense, as I told her … will hand recording to (Sydney Morning Herald) lawyers and pursue. You have been so advised,” he said. He said it was a “friendly interview” and that he did not raise his voice at all.

John Cleese Doubles Down on Slavery, Reparations Jokes Amid Backlash

John Cleese has hit back at his critics after facing a backlash over jokes he made about slavery while taking part in a talk at the South by Southwest (SXSW) film festival.

The Monty Python star, 82, fronted the “John Cleese in Conversation” event in Austin, Texas, on March 11, alongside fellow comedians Dulcé Sloan, Jim Gaffigan, and Ricky Velez, when the subject of colonization was raised.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cleese said to Sloan, who is Black, that the British gave her “free passage” to the U.S., in reference to slavery. He also said the British are owed reparations by Italy, a joking reference to the Roman conquest of Britain nearly 2,000 years ago.

The British-born star is quoted as adding: “History is a history of crime. It’s a history of people who were stronger beating up people who were weaker, and it’s always been that. It’s deeply, deeply distasteful. But to pretend that one lot were worse than another—you do know the British have been slaves twice, right?”

Later returning to the topic, Cleese said: “[People] get competitive about this business of being oppressed. We were oppressed, the English, by the Romans for 400 [years], from about 0 to 400.”

“I want reparations from Italy,” Cleese, star of A Fish Called Wanda, commented, adding: “And then the Normans came over in 1066… they were horrible people from France, and they came and colonized us for 30 years—we need reparations there too, I’m afraid.”

I’d be very, very surprised if they have even half of that, incl. DPR/LPR.

Dover – I’m just saying what I’m seeing. I have no side in this fight. I know a few Russians as friends but no Ukrainians.

You’re probably getting towards accuracy if you more than halve the casualty figures the other side publishes for their enemy. Propaganda being what it is. Which gets you to near equal losses.

I think the Ukrainians have lost more since the Russians have been using massed artillery tactics, although that has slowed recently. There’s a limit on how much artillery ammunition they squirreled away, and the amount they’ve been using is phenomenal. On the other hand the Russians also have been forced in the last few days to move units down to the Kherson area, which suggests the Ukrainian counterattacks have hurt some.

If you take a step back though, and look at the maps, you’d be hard pressed to tell which side was doing better in the last two months. It’s damn near static. Which also implies equal losses.
