Hi, just had my first 4 days of Rio Tinto training and am waiting for my plane home (Brisbane). Wow, mining is changing and I’m proud to say your Mum is going to play a part in that change, being a part of a whole group of female leaders being asked to make mining a great place for women to work. We have a big job ahead, I’m nervous but also excited.

Wouldn’t have that trouble if we didn’t have two separate flags for around 3% of the population:

Anthony Albanese’s jobs summit has been marred by an embarrassing faux pas when the Aboriginal flag was hung upside down for half the first day.

The Indigenous flag was displayed alongside the Australian and Torres Strait Islander insignias at the meeting on Thursday at the meeting of 140 government and business leaders.

Despite being in the background as the prime minister addressed the summit, the issue was not rectified and continued to hang wrongly for hours.

The black half of the flag, which represents the Aboriginal people, is supposed to be at the top when it is flown, and instead the red half was hung at the top.

The Self-Castration Of The US Military

The pussification of the US Armed Forces continues, thanks to its woke senior leadership

What in the actual hell?!:

A division of the U.S. Pacific Air Forces (PACAF), the branch tasked with confronting China, has ordered its senior leaders and commanders to stop using gender pronouns in written formats, saying the shift to more neutral language will help improve the fighting force’s “lethality.”

“In accordance with the Diverse PACAF priority, ‘We must embrace, promote and unleash the potential of diversity and inclusion,” states a May email sent to senior leaders and commanders at the Andersen Air Force Base in Guam, which operates under the Pacific Air Forces, according to a partial copy of the order obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

Leaders at the base are instructed, “Do not use pronouns, age, race, etc.” when writing performance reviews or other materials, such as recommendations for awards. “Competition against near-peer adversaries requires a united focus from the command, the joint team, and our international partners. Welcoming and employing varied perspectives from a foundation of mutual respect will improve our interoperability, efficiency, creativity, and lethality.”

The WFB has a screenshot of the actual order. Go see it for yourself. A spokesman for the military said, presumably with a straight (ahem) face:

Unleashing the potential of diversity and inclusion at all levels is a Pacific Air Forces’ priority and something we strive for at Andersen,” the spokesman said. “Diversity and inclusion are force multipliers and warfighting imperatives that enable our competitive advantage against near-peer adversaries.”

This is what these lunatics, in every institution, tell themselves: that whatever crackpot diversity thing they support, it makes us STRONGER. It’s just an empty assertion, nothing more. That’s it! I bet you more than half the people in authority who repeat this garbage don’t believe it. They say it because they want to get ahead. This is what you call “ketman”. From my book Live Not By Lies:

It is difficult for people raised in the free world to grasp the breadth and the depth of lying required simply to exist under communism. All the lies, and lies about lies, that formed the communist order were built on the basis of this foundational lie:

the communist state is the sole source of truth. Orwell expressed this truth in Nineteen Eighty-Four: “The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.”

Under the dictatorship of Big Brother, the Party understands that by changing language—Newspeak is the Party’s word for the jargon it imposes on society—it controls the categories in which people think. “Freedom” is slavery, “truth” is falsehood, and so forth. Doublethink—“holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them”—is how people learn to submit their minds to the Party’s ideology. If the Party says 2 + 2 = 5, then 2 + 2 = 5. The goal is to convince the person that all truth exists within the mind, and the rightly ordered mind believes whatever the Party says is true.

Orwell writes:

It was as though some huge force were pressing down upon you—something that penetrated inside your skull, battering against your brain, frightening you out of your beliefs, persuading you, almost, to deny the evidence of your senses. In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it. Not merely the validity of experience but the very existence of external reality was tacitly denied by their philosophy. The heresy of heresies was common sense.

Price calls out upside down Aboriginal flag at summit
Tricia Rivera
TRICIA RIVERA

Country Liberal Senator Jacinta Nampijinpa Price has called out the government for displaying the Aboriginal flag upside down at the Jobs and Skills Summit.

Senator Price posted a photo to her Facebook of Treasurer Jim Chalmers standing in front of the incorrectly hung flag.

“With all the virtuous expression of respect for Aboriginal Australians or as Labor call us ‘First Nations’ and all the carry on with strategically placing the flag prominently to express this deep virtue you’d think that this Albanese government could actually hang it the right way up?” Senator Price wrote on social media.

22,000 Colorado Households Lose Control of Their Home Thermostats During Heat Wave as Power Company Locks Out Air Conditioning Use

September 1, 2022 – Sundance

Indoor temperatures began climbing, and when formerly free-range residents attempted to adjust their air conditioning, they discovered they were locked out from control in their own home as the power company took over.

Comrade Citizens, it is important that we support the needs of the energy collective. All good thinking citizens put the needs of the state ahead of their selfish desires.

As the national energy emergency now begins to unfold, the officials in charge of energy resource equity remind everyone how critical it is to remain compliant with all ministerial energy objectives. Compliance is expected from all correct thinking citizens.

As long as you remain compliant, there is no reason for concern. Do not attempt to adjust your household allocation of energy. Energy advisors will be made available for enhanced personal education to explain the benefits of our Green New Deal. Your cooperation is appreciated

I have no doubt that many big businesses told Dickhead Dan that they could deliver on employee vaccination.

They wouldn’t have so merrily violated laws on coercion if they weren’t in full cooperation.

And the only reason they really get away with their mandates is because of the mega debt load most people are carrying. Much easier to tell the fascists to pound sand if there is no mortgage hanging over your head.

In the case of murder, the bar for a return to society should be set high, both for the protection of society and the satisfaction of justice – in laymen’s terms the punishment must fit the crime.

Anything less cheapens human life.

Agree Roger.
When the death sentence was scrapped, advocates of abolition campaigned with assurances that murderers could be given whole-of-life sentences.
The ink was barely dry on abolition when we started hearing how full life sentences were crushing and unfair.
The default setting should be whole-of-life for murder with parole being a rare exeption. One of the conditions of release on parole would be disclosure of location of remains.
If you can’t produce that for whatever reason, I guess you can file that under “B” for Bad Luck.

Within the outline, Carlson notes the background of an angry, bitter and disconnected divider-in-chief and the hate-filled agenda he espouses. {Direct Rumble Link}

I remember that debate “Life would mean life – murderers would die behind bars.”

I also remember a case in Western Australia – a convicted murderer was sentenced to hang. He was reprieved, sentenced to life imprisonment. He was released on parole, and went on to commit another murder…..

America is now suffering from a shortage of carbon dioxide

Your government at work

By Editorial Board – The Washington Times – Wednesday, August 31, 2022
OPINION:

For years crusaders like former Vice President Al Gore have claimed carbon emissions are a great threat to mankind’s continued existence. People laughed when he started. Now, thanks to unmeasurable amounts of infotainment, they take those claims seriously, embracing them with a kind of religious fervor and believing their activism is the only thing preventing the destruction of mankind.

In the just-enacted Inflation Reduction Act, for example, there are programs, tax hikes, subsidies, and grants projected to cost the economy something over $500 billion over the next ten years to bring the average global mean temperature down a fraction of a degree.

If the Chinese don’t stop building coal-fired plants to produce electricity, whatever very expensive reductions in carbon emissions the U.S. will achieve for all that money will be wiped out and then some.

This is why you should not be surprised to learn America is now suffering from a shortage of CO2, shock of shocks. CO2 has legitimate, even important industrial applications in, for example, the food and beverage industry. Reports are starting to appear that major companies food producers and giants in the over-the-counter beverage industry are at wit’s end because there isn’t enough of it to keep the fizz in your drink and your food items properly chilled as they’re moved from the factory to the frozen food aisle of your local grocery for too much longer.

Call it your government at work. Taking on problems, real and imagined, one by one, without considering how decisions made in one place or about one product might impact the entire marketplace.

Given current policy, that makes no sense whatsoever. But, to paraphrase President Ronald Reagan, the secular patron saint of the limited government movement, when did anything the federal government does make sense?

So it was all about the Iran Nuclear Deal…

It’s About The Iran Deal!

Alright, it’s time for in depth breakdown on the escalation of the Mar-a-Lago raid.

For those who didn’t see it, someone (purportedly the FBI), leaked this photo, from the FBI raid. The docs are laid out in the floor in Mar-a-Lago. While everyone is arguing about who put them there, the juice is in the photo.

I posted when I saw these dates that the big news on these days were: 1

May 9th, 2018- Trump backs out of Obama’s Iran Nuclear Deal2

August 26th, 2018- News breaks of John McCain’s death. The next day, President of Kenya meets with Trump at White House3

So why would the Biden Admin be after Trump’s documents about Obama’s Nuclear deal with Iran? Why are they so afraid of Trump having them?

I’m still unsure why these are of interest or if they are correlated, but a few hours after I posted about the Iran Deal, Trump confirmed it with a Truth quoting Paul Sperry about the docs pertaining to the Iran Deal.4

Remember the crates of cash dropped off to Iran? Plus the tens of billions of US dollars sent to Iran for them to not build nuclear weapons. Just for them to use the money Obama gave them, to build the weapons we paid them not to make…

I don’t know for sure, but it appears very much like Biden Admin weaponized the FBI to illegally retrieve these documents due to fear of Trump releasing them. Covering for their Deep State overlords.

But then we see this oddly placed TIME magazine cover, precariously snuck into the photo. And it’s clearly not there by accident. Why the hell would the FBI include it, and why does Trump have it framed and waiting for them?

DOJ Is Likely to Wait Past Midterms to Reveal Any Trump Charges

Bloomberg) — Federal prosecutors are likely to wait until after the November election to announce any charges against Donald Trump, if they determine he broke laws, according to people familiar.

Under long-standing department policy, prosecutors are barred from taking investigative steps or filing charges for the purpose of affecting an election or helping a candidate or party, traditionally 60 days before an election. This year, that would be by Sept. 10, which makes it unlikely anything would be announced until after Nov. 8, said people who asked to remain anonymous speaking about potential Justice Department actions.

Under long-standing department policy, prosecutors are barred from taking investigative steps or filing charges for the purpose of affecting an election or helping a candidate or party, traditionally 60 days before an election. This year, that would be by Sept. 10, which makes it unlikely anything would be announced until after Nov. 8, said people who asked to remain anonymous speaking about potential Justice Department actions.

It’s not clear if any of the investigations into Trump will have reached the point by November that a decision on charging him could be made, according to two of the people who asked to remain anonymous.

Announcing charges against Trump prior to the election likely would be seen as a political ploy by his supporters to damage him and his endorsed candidates, and could fuel unrest in the country.

South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, for example, recently warned during an interview on Fox News “there literally will be riots in the street” if Trump is indicted for mishandling classified information. Trump immediately posted the clip to his social-media site.

On Seven News Tonight – Aether UVC Troffer

Aether combines two proven and powerful methods of cleansing the air. UV-C technology in a contained chamber pro-actively inactivates pathogens as the air passes through the fitting. An in-built HEPA filter scrubs the air by filtering the inactivated viruses and particulate, pushing cleaner, safer air back into the environment. The resulting air is cleansed of 99.995% of airborne pathogens such as COVID-19 and influenza. Cleaner air means safer spaces, and reduced impact from infection.

FBI Blasted for ‘Staged’ Photo of Documents Seized in Mar-a-Lago Raid

“I love staged photo ops,” Trump’s attorney Alina Habba told Charlie Kirk on Wednesday. “I mean, it’s amazing how they specifically placed in response.” She added:

But they’re arguing that everything is too sensitive, so we can’t have a special master. It was top secret, but they can put exhibit F, which is the picture of all the top secret documents laid out strategically on the floor and that’s not a problem. It’s a typical ‘we are trying to backup our story because we don’t have one image’ is my perspective of that.

“And all I see is this raid continuing to backfire because it’s not being run by law Enforcement, it’s being run by government gangsters, like [FBI Director] Chris Wray, and [Attorney General] Merrick Garland,” Patel said.

He also said the government officials involved in the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago are connected to the officials who were involved in the Russia collusion hoax.

“Now these guys know they were on the precipice of releasing the other Russia gate documents that Devin and I could not release that Donald Trump declassified and what do they do?” Patel said. “They go raid Mar Lago and say ,’Uh! Can’t see anything anymore. We have an open investigation.’”

Richard Grenell pointed out the photographed document were declassified by Trump and noted the comparison between Trump’s handling of documents and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

“It was all declassified papers (not accessible digitally) and kept in a former President’s office – guarded by the United States Secret Service,” Grenell tweeted. “Hillary was never President, her documents were never declassified and were all available digitally ONLINE for hackers.”

Former Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), who chaired the House Oversight Committee, called the FBI’s photograph “a public relations effort.”

“Well, the impression I got is that it was a public relations effort. This is not needed in a court document to make the case to the sitting judge,” Chaffetz said during an appearance on Fox News. “This was put out there knowing that they were gonna go out there to the media.”

Nobody here wants anyone to die. However, it’s now indisputable that these injectables come with certain risks. The behaviour of the authorities is absolutely inexcusable, not to mention criminal. They are not only shutting their eyes to the danger but actually punishing anyone who dares speak out. In my view this is proof of the risk because there would be no reason to censor people if there were valid arguments to the contrary. This is science by force majeure.

But, of course, the excess deaths are being caused by climate change.

After the Patriot Act was triggered, not coincidentally only six weeks after 9/11, a slow and dangerous fuse was lit that ends with the intelligence apparatus being granted a massive amount of power. Simultaneously the mission of the intelligence community now encompassed monitoring domestic threats as defined by the people who operate the surveillance system.

Russian oil firm chief Maganov dies after hospital window fall

Ravil Maganov, chairman of Russia’s second-largest oil producer Lukoil, has died after falling from a hospital window in Moscow, becoming the latest in a series of sudden unexplained deaths of businessmen.

As can happen. Obviously.

Lukoil was one of the few major Russian companies to call for the end of fighting in Ukraine after Moscow sent its troops there in February.

In a statement at the time, the Lukoil board called for an “immediate” end to the invasion, expressing its sympathy for those affected by the “tragedy”.

Arguably unwise.
The first senior Lukoil manager died of mysterious circumstances a few weeks later.

Asked by Reuters if they were investigating the death as suspicious, Moscow police referred the question to the state’s Investigative Committee. The committee did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

However, Lukoil appears to have received the message at 5:5.

Lukoil said in a statement that Maganov had “passed away following a serious illness”.

It looks like the RINO’s will be cleaned out in Arizona in November but then resources have to spent in Alaska to clean them out there.
Unlike the DNC which just has villain rotation, the GOP base has to fight the DNC & the RINO’s non stop.

I waver about compulsory voting, once upon a time I was totally against it but now I’m not so sure. I do understand that compulsory voting is fundamentally anti-democratic but compulsory voting might save Australia and might certainly save right of centre parties in this country. The reason why is when you have voluntary voting, voter turnout is often tied to demographics, so those in more traditional working class regions/electorates don’t turn out to vote on the same scale that voters in more affluent areas do. I’m aware of the generalisation of this comment but I do think there is some merit in my argument. Compulsory voting forces people to vote and this might save the right in this country. Whilst the Liberals lose electorates like Wentworth and Kooyong, they need to pick up seats in less affluent, more lower/middle class areas and the shift in voter sentiment combined with compelled voting might enable the Liberals to do so. Otherwise the Liberals are toast. You know, there are many people in countries like the US and UK who’ve never voted in their lives. I find that quite shocking. Okay, there are the occasional times when people in countries where voting is voluntary, such as the US and UK, will make the effort to get out and vote IF (and only IF) there’s an issue that impacts them. We saw this clearly in the US in November 2020 and in the UK in 2016. Brexit saw many Britons turn out to vote that day in 2016 who’d never voted in their lives.

If we have voluntary voting in this country, where the only people who bother to turn out on election day to vote are those in the inner-city Green electorates and affluent suburbs like Wentworth, North Sydney, Goldstein, Warringah, Kooyong, Curtin, Mackellar…we’re stuffed. So, I’m somewhat comforted by the fact that on election day here in Oz, it isn’t just the well heeled scum in the aforementioned electorates who are voting, it’s also the residents of Campbelltown, Penrith, Fairfield and Blacktown who are forced to vote.

And once the blackouts begin, it won’t be the wealthy, renewable grifting scum living in Teal electorates who will save Australia, it’ll be the tradies living in Campbelltown, Fairfield, Penrith and Blacktown who may well save this country.

Interested in people’s thoughts. Happy to be rebutted!

Time for Cats to read Patel Patriot substack and certainly Q posts to understand the Mar-a-Lago raid.

Unsurprising that custard would fall into the Q rabbit hole. Never was the sharpest tool in the shed.

Sez the gullible idiot who fell hook, line and sinker for the FBI’s posed photo of classified documents on the floor.

Then claimed the next day that it was just a standard photo taken during enforcement of a search warrant.
