    Never let this mighty achievement be forgotten. Dai Le has finally killed the mad yank cow’s political career (if it could be dignified with such a term) stone cold dead.

    I doubt it. She’ll be parachuted into some other Labor senate seat – to then lose (or fail to win).

  5. In the end, I was so run down and so far behind in the school work I left to start a job.

    Much the same for Granddaughters. Eldest is taking a break from Uni because, although she is doing well in her teaching subjects and received excellent reviews for her prac teaching, she’s refused the Covid ‘vaccine’ and is therefore banned from employment as a teacher. She started after school waitressing at the local pub when she was barely 15 and is now a vice manager (or whatever it’s called) at the top eatery in town. And, her bank account is nudging $25K.

    Similar with number 2, although she was getting very depressed*, egged on by a teacher who encouraged her to make a doctor appointment (without informing parents) where she was introduced to the never-ending world of Big Pharma. She has now left school (at 16 and 1/2) and is working two jobs, happier than ever (no more drugs) and her bank account a shade under $10K.

    The education system is failing our kids big time. Students are overwhelmed with negativity under the guise of wellness lessons: “Are you stressed, victimised, abused, trapped in the wrong body gender-wise? We can help and no, you don’t have to tell Mum and Dad. Trust us.”

    It has always been hard being a young teen, what with hormones, pimples, insecurities etc. The wellness curriculum today, plus myriad social media sites, can crush any youngster.

    *#2 has always wanted to be a midwife. She has passed prelim subjects which practically guarantee her a Uni placement. But she refuses to be ‘vaccinated’. End of her dreams.

    Amazon Blocks Negative Reviews Of Its Woke Lord Of The Rings Series (5 Sep)

    Is ‘The Rings Of Power’ the worst case of leftist propaganda ever created? No, but it is the straw that broke the camel’s back. This time the fandom is in heavy opposition and is not afraid to speak out. … Amazon is currently blocking reviews for 72 hours in order to “weed out the trolls.”

    A full copy of your 4:14 comment on European aluminium.

    The industry says it urgently needs government support to survive. However, any measures like fixed price caps to keep power-hungry plants running may be difficult to justify while consumers face soaring power bills and the threat of rationing and blackouts looms.

    Why ask for government support? They caused the bloody problem!
    If I’m right, Biden will start releasing aluminium from the US strategic stockpile in an effort to reduce the US ability to sustain war level manufacturing.

    This is our last day of “self guiding” – off to some wineries and a lunch of traditional Croatian delicacies. This gives me a little trepidation – it might be “nose to tail” …

    We employed a driver for a little excursion out of Split on a Sunday.
    When I shook hands with him I knew he wasn’t a full-time driver (hands of concrete).
    Turns out he worked on construction sites and driving was his weekend gig.
    We said to him how great the fish was in Croatia.
    His reply?
    “Fish is a tourist meal now. We can’t afford it.”

  21. Liars gonna lie – the latest federal MP for my electorate (Sally Sitou [Liars Party] who replaced the abominable Fiona Martin [SFL]), in a speech in parliament today, about Samoa:

    “When I was there a decade ago, climate change wasn’t an existential threat: it was very real and it was very present. On this tiny island in the middle of the Pacific there were no climate change deniers, because the effects of climate change were being felt and seen every day. And it’s gotten worse; if we do not act, Samoa will be wiped off the face of the earth. With the help of international assistance, the Samoan government has built sea walls to try to hold back the rising tide. Their efforts, while valiant, may have had some limited success in the short term but will ultimately prove to be futile. By 2030, the island’s surrounding sea level will increase by up to 17 centimetres. Samoa and island nations in the Pacific are on the front line of climate change.”

    (before announcing Australia will give $2B or so to the grifters)

    What she doesn’t say (i.e. conveniently overlooks):
    “A 2009, magnitude-8.1 Samoa earthquake dealt a great deal of damage to the Samoan Islands: Tsunami waves as high as 14 meters (46 feet) wiped out multiple villages, claiming nearly 200 lives and severely damaging water and electrical systems. New research reveals the damage is likely to continue in the island Tutuila, also known as American Samoa. A new study shows the island is now sinking, a product of post-earthquake tectonic shifting that will likely continue for decades.”

We parked at Eastgate and walked through the parking station to cross the road. Whilst in the car park, waiting for my mother who’s a little slow, a family of four was walking through with a disobedient small boy. The boy shouted at his mother who then smacked him on the bum. That shut him up.

  30. “Sally Sitou”

    The fact that Sitou is the member for Reid is testimony to just how utterly woeful Fiona Martin was as the Liberal member for Reid. Martin was a member who would run a mile from constituents, a member who crossed the floor to vote against religious freedom, a member who, like the unlamented Sharma, Zimmerboy, Foolinsky, Allen, Wilson and co was a dripping wet waste of space. Reid is an electorate the Liberals could easily win back in three years, it isn’t a “Teal electorate” (Sitou is Labor) but this will depend on the following…

    1. whether the Liberal Party of Australia can discover a spine to rebut the progressive narrative on such things as “da climate nonsense”; and

    2. whether the Liberal Party can choose a candidate who, unlike Martin, actually believes in Liberal policies.

    Time will tell.

  34. Liz Truss declared British prime minister after Tory ballot win

    Liz Truss has come a long way since the days of chanting “Maggie, Maggie, Maggie, out, out, out” as she marched through the streets of the Scottish city of Paisley with her left-wing parents, furious at Margaret Thatcher’s pro-nuclear policies.

    Now, after she travels to Balmoral Castle to see the Queen on Tuesday, this one time anti-monarchist remainer will be confirmed the 56th British prime minister and leader of the Conservative party – and one of her first duties will be to give a green light to more investment in nuclear power.

    On Monday night Ms Truss was declared as the winner of the ballot of an estimated 200,000 Tory party grass-roots members ahead of former chancellor of the exchequer Rishi Sunak to ­replace the scandal-plagued Boris Johnson.

    Ms Truss has had numerous metamorphoses over the decades to draw upon as she faces dealing with the country’s most extraordinary economic shock: the skyrocketing and eye-watering energy price increases that have begun claiming livelihoods.

    Now, as an uncomfortable and unaffordable winter approaches, the Christmas lights are turned off and vulnerable lives are at stake, Ms Truss may have to perform more of her life’s u-turns.

    Mary Elizabeth Truss is the 47-year-old the mother of two teenage girls. Her marriage to financier Hugh O’Leary survived a publicised affair in 2004 with a fellow Tory MP, Mark Field, although her political career at the time took a brief hit.

  35. had a chat yesterday for father’s day and he was telling me how he was thinking of buying one of those electric vehicles.

    he backed up his decision based on a docco he watched that proved beyond all doubt that the oil companies crushed the original battery flavoured cars in the 60s

    and how some bloke from Melbourne called Pritchard was essentially paid off by Big Oil because he’d solved the steam powered car problems.

In fact, if anyone has a group email for our politicians, this is the ideal item to see who is and isn’t honest among them.

    Apparently, someone translated it into Hebrew and posted it there and it was removed within an hour. The only news outlet prepared to cover it was GB News with Neil Oliver (link included). And then there’s this:

    Fox News was notified but declined to cover it (apparently because their advertising contracts with Pfizer prohibits them from covering any negative news about the vaccines).

    We have reached the point where murder can be committed in plain view and our authorities and media simply turn their backs and pretend it isn’t there while penalising anyone pointing it out.

    Footy great Wayne Carey has stood down from Channel 7 and been banned from Crown Resorts premises for two years after being caught with a bag of white powder at its Perth casino.

    Carey admitted to security guards that the bag of white substance was his, though sources close to the Australian Football Hall of Fame member on Monday night insisted it contained “crushed up anti-inflammatory drugs”.

  54. Enrolments will go up:

    Catholic schools have been strongly advised not to assist in ­efforts to affirm gender transitions in students through the use of drugs or surgical interventions and that “a human being’s sex is a physical, biological reality”.

    The Australian Catholic Bishops Conference will advise schools that, for the vast majority of children and adolescents, gender ­incongruence is a psychological condition through which they will pass safely and naturally with supportive psychological care.

    The guidance, to be issued on Tuesday, urges Catholic schools to avoid assisting in the issue of puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones or surgery to limit possible infertility, “unnecessary damage” and “future possibilities for healthy human growth”.

    The nation has more than 1700 Catholic schools educating about 780,000 students.

  55. Today went a little pear shaped. Just the two of us with our own guide in a golf mini bus. Lots of delicious sparkling sine overlooking a valley, reminiscent of Tuscany, with its poplars and little red roofed farms outlined on the horizon. And local snacks of the cured meat and cheese variety, all made at the farmhouse plus fresh baked bread.

    And a lesson in fermentation timing and sugar levels, and the trend towards amber wines.

    On the road to Samobor we picked up a nail and, on arrival, a flat. No spare, no tools. Lunch became an atomic local version of the snot block and a coffee while we awaited repairs.

    No worries. Sat in the town square watching the passing parade. And we could do without the calories!

  56. Training for future careers?

    A Sydney high school is making students who want to visit the toilet present their fingerprints in a bid to track their movements to stamp out vandalism in a move that has upset parents.

    The decision to rollout the tech for toilet access has also shocked privacy experts who say there is no excuse to take biometric data from students which could be vulnerable to hackers who want personal information.

    Moorebank High principal Vally Grego wrote to parents earlier this year telling them that Posiflex Kiosks Biometrics would be rolled out this term.

    “The system will roll out in Term 3 for the external student toilets only,” she told parents earlier this year.

    “We are introducing this system to monitor students’ movement during class time and to reduce the incidents of vandalism. We will then investigate the upgrade to the toilets.”

    I’m two weeks early because I’m going to tour the Native American (Northern Souix) war and migration sites, and nip down to Yellowstone while it is still accessible, and not impossibly crowded.
    The trail outfit are serious players. There is a four day, pre start program involving a saddle test and remedial, horsie maintenance and care, and survival training.
    I’m a little worried about the risk of endless green propaganda but there is no evidence of it in the literature.
