International cricket star Danushka Gunathilaka has been granted bail on a $200,000 surety to live at an undisclosed address in Sydney while he awaits court proceedings on rape charges.

The Sri Lankan batsman, who has been in custody on remand since his arrest 11 days ago on allegations he repeatedly raped his Tinder date in her Rose Bay home, will be subject to a series of strict conditions while at liberty in the community, including a total ban on using Tinder, or accessing his existing social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram.

The order does not prevent him from opening new accounts on the two social media platforms.

Downing Centre Local Court heard a “friend of a friend”, identified in court only as a Melbourne woman named “Ms DaSilva”, had agreed to forfeit $150,000 to ensure Gunathilaka complied with his bail conditions, while Gunathilaka himself is required to agree to forfeit $50,000 as well.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Kerry-Ann McKinnon opposed Gunathilaka’s bail application, arguing the 31-year-old posed a significant flight risk and could endanger the safety of the alleged victim if released from custody.

What, by framing ordinary decent citizens for ‘crimes’ that could see them put away for 5 or more years?

I used to be dismissive of the whole ‘don’t trust the police’ narrative from our Aboriginal citizens – until I was on the receiving end myself – hopefully more on that in a few days – but – standing on stage at the ‘Canberra Convoy’ protests, having just been bailed after 6 days in solitary, it was suddenly clear to me that a LOT of the whole aboriginal ‘grievance movement’ was manufactured by our political betters to benefit the bureaucracy, even at the detriment of those aboriginal citizens themselves.

I don’t subscribe to the ‘bad whitey dunnit’ mindset, but I sure see the ‘we are stoking conflict between aboriginal and non aboriginal Australia’ for our own, not their, benefit argument…..

Has anyone had an internal server error this week?

No.
Nowadays, I avoid software failures at the Cat by not using defective technology like the Brave browser, which its designers had hoped would allow users to avoid monopolies like Google and Microsoft.

Thing is Microsoft products work. So, for example, I use Microsoft Edge to post cartoons at 0400, even though it subjects me to a vile stream of leftwing opinion posing as news from msm.com.
That enables me to avoid the hopelessness of Brave, which, for example, doesn’t allow me to conduct routine tasks like banking and betting.

Quite, my own experience of the AFP provably colluding to manufacture charges which put me at risk of FIVE OR MORE YEARS OF INCARCETATION rather dissipated decades of regarding our policing colleagues as ‘brothers in arms’ after I had spent 40 years working alongside them in the EMS sphere.

Fact.

Crotchless, facing your accuser is not a stare-down; legally facing your accuser means being able to cross examine them and challenge their evidence. This is why the proposal by the ACT to amend the Evidence Act to allow save brittany from turning up again and video of her initial testimony and maybe her prior court evidence instead to be represented is superficially reasonable. This is consistent with the first 2 legs of facing your accuser, but the third leg of the jury and/or the Judge being able to observe the accuser is sacrificed. In addition, the motive behind this abrupt change wreaks of ideology.

Now stfu and talk about stuff you know like chafe free crotchless panties.

When it comes to how we should view the police force, consider this:

These people were ‘just following orders’ when they conducted checks on small businesses to ensure that they were either closed, or did not have too many people in their shop, lest the risk a fine, closure, jail, etc… I was in a few shops when I saw this take place in more than one occasion.

Anyone who is still a police officer is an enemy of the people, I see no other way of looking at them now…

Elsewhere in the civilised world MSK would have been placed in a cage after such a display. But in NSW he couldn’t even be handcuffed for fear of prejudicing the pear-encrusted jury. The boundless restraint of the court towards the K brothers was no doubt admirable.

No, TFM. It was a disgraceful display of physical, legal and moral cowardice on the part of the Court.
The Muslim community was shown a degree of deference unthinkable of any other religion or person.
I don’t know if you remember the copper who started to sort them out in Lakemba? and when he was doing a preliminary round of one of the estates the ‘youths’ were chucking bricks at the cop car. He grabbed the first one he saw and threw him into the car, took him back to the cop shop and dragged the arrogant little shit around the office – now shaking and terrified, crying his eyes out. “This is what you’re afraid of?”
And the government caved to settle the community. Yeah – that worked well.

Yeah right. Methinks Bragg needs to be told a few home truths….that the Liberals lost North Sydney, Wentworth and Mackellar because there was no fucking difference between the Teals and the resident, hopeless waste of space wets sitting in the those seats, the unlamented Zimmerboy, Foolinsky and Karma Sharma.

As he has no case to answer (if he had it might not look too good for the shenior officer) it’s time to get him with the racist texts.

A trial run, before the bugmen start implementing it on the humans:

https://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/animals-and-livestock/nlis/sheep-and-goat-electronic-identification

Australia is currently transitioning to mandatory individual electronic identification for sheep and goats by 1 January 2025. The NSW eID Sheep and Goat Reference Group is working to develop a draft eID implementation plan for sheep and goats.

A response from Pastoralists’ Association of West Darling:

The following is PAWD’s position regarding electronic tagging:
(1) All sheep and goats eligible for a tag free movement option direct from property of birth to slaughter.
(2) All rangeland goats eligible for a tag free movement option direct from property of capture to one registered goat depot or slaughter.
(3) All sheep and goats that are otherwise sold, moved or transferred are subject to compulsory electronic tagging after the eID commencement date.
(4) Enhancing feral animal control efforts on a tenure neutral basis to prepare for/in response to any exotic disease outbreak.
(5) More face-to-face consultation with grassroots producers by the NSW eID Sheep and Goat Reference Group.

PAWD offers a standing invitation to anyone who thinks tagging rangeland goats is a good idea to come out to far west NSW and have a go at tagging themselves.

Or Harris County. The difference is Harris County is in…Texas.

Harris County DA Kim Ogg launches 2022 election investigation, asks Texas Rangers to assist (16 Nov)

Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg has opened an investigation into possible criminal conduct in the county’s administration of last week’s midterm election, when some polling places opened late and others ran out of ballot paper, among other issues. She also has asked state authorities to assist with the probe. Ogg confirmed the investigation, first reported by the New York Times, in a Wednesday statement to Houston Public Media. She made her request for assistance in a Monday email to the Texas Rangers, saying her office had received a referral from the Texas Secretary of State’s Office about “alleged irregularities” that “potentially may include criminal conduct”

Watch this one. I have no idea about Ogg, or the Texas Rangers, but Harris County is a Dem enclave in a Red State. And we know all about those. The difference is trying this stuff on in Texas may result in just a bit more ire than elsewhere. I hope it will be so.

Australian doctors and health care professionals continue to tell me that the doctor patient relationship has been forever damaged by the positions recently adopted by the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency.

I’ve moved to a new GP since my previously trusted one tried to tell me the vaccines were ‘Fully Approved’, and refused to take notes when I mentioned my chest pains and heart palpitations. The new one might have maintained the same stance, but, being new, at least she hasn’t lied to me…yet.

You better believe the relationship is damaged. They knew people were being coerced, and yet they lined up with a syringe for their 10 pieces of silver, contrary to long established medical practice..

What are they going to do if they become aware that people are being coerced into voluntary euthanasia, or coerced into living organ donations?

IMHO they’ve lost the place they once held in society, as the pinnacle of trust. The CFMEU rank and file showed more integrity during the period.

Typical nonsense from government Rosie. Just for votes, has no practical value. Over the last decade there have been huge increases in mental health spending and antidepressant prescribing. Hasn’t shifted the pathology figures one iota.
To give you an idea of the problem just today I read a report arguing the DSM categories for mental illness are next to useless. That doesn’t surprise me or people familiar with the problem.

Responding to the mindless misogynists here. Somebody above characterised all women as ‘you.’ This is what ‘you’ wanted. He may have been referring to me, in which case he was wrong, but I doubt it.

Moron.

What I can’t understand is how the misogynists erase things like Tony Abbot in 2013 (all the pundits said he had a ‘woman problem’) and Trump 2020, ditto.

Is it just the latest thing to blame their the-world-is-going-to-hell-in-a-handbasket wailing?

Nobody ever asks why women do not want to have nine children, like they used to in the good old days. Nobody asks why they only want one or two, except to blame them for being selfish. This lack of honest analysis of why women, all over the world and in a range of cultures, do not want to be brood mares is telling.

The technological revolution has changed the relationship between men and women. Even 150 years ago, physical strength was very important to making a living. Most people worked in agriculture, or in factories or at the docks and related jobs. Most of those jobs required physical strength and fitness.

Today, only a small proportion of jobs require those things. Other skills are more important, and women are in a much stronger position in the job market.

I am trying to walk the tightrope on this. It is not helpful to turn it into a slanging match.

The hijacking of old school feminism is no different from the hijacking of the War Memorial or Australia Day. Blaming women as a group is precisely what the proponents are against in principle, or so they say.

As for that pathetic little losers club who want to disenfranchise women, there are a few Kittehs who might like to have a chat with you. We expect rippling abs and swollen pecs, full heads of hair, and fat bank accounts. 🙂

There’s far too little being revealed about election fraud this time around, despite the methodology being exactly the same as in 2020.
The primary proof of fraud in elections this year and in 2020 is that rigged elections by their very nature take extra time because of the need to first tally the actual votes that come in on time in order to find out how many votes would be needed to deliver and assure the margin of victory for predetermined victor at the back-end. The process is purposely drawn out for days and weeks to legitimize the “process” that purports to need time to produce and count the ballots to declare the “winner.” By these simple criteria alone we can say that the 2020 and the 2022 midterm elections were the most corrupt in U.S. history.

I’ve made my own mince pies in the past. Takes a lot of time to get the filling to the correct level of “ripeness” in a jar in the fridge. Then you have to do the shortcrust pastry for the tops and bottoms and get it just the right thickness to do the job and still allow enough room to put the filling in.

Then, invariably, the filling bubbles out in the oven and sticks the pie base to the pie tray, requiring gymnastics and much swearing to get the things out without breaking them. Success rate is less than 50%.

So Aldi it is. 😀

The Dark Origins of the Davos Great Reset

This may have been linked before but it is worth revisiting.

Canadian Maurice Strong was one of the key early propagators of the scientifically flawed theory that man-made CO2 emissions from transportation vehicles, coal plants and agriculture caused a dramatic and accelerating global temperature rise which threatens “the planet”, so-call Global Warming.

As chairman of the 1972 Earth Day UN Stockholm Conference Strong promoted an agenda of population reduction and lowering of living standards around the world to “save the environment”

Strong stated his radical ecologist agenda:

“Isn’t it the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our
responsibility to bring that about?”

This is what is now taking place under cover of a hyped global pandemic.

This is something I have known since about the turn of the century. “Global warming” was purely political from day one. They decided to use CO2 as their weapon at a meeting in Vienna in the mid 1960s. This call came out during “Climategate” in 2013(?) but they’ve very successfully managed to sweep it back under the carpet. I now think that the ozone layer scare was simply a dress rehearsal for all this.

And these troglodytes are happily carrying it through to its catastrophic and murderous ends. No wonder they’re thought of as lizard people. How much humanity do they actually have?

There was a friendly doubles comp the club put on matching a regular amateur club member and a tennis pro. The deal was that the pro wouldn’t hit the ball to the regular guy. Trump was in the comp. Apparently, Trump told his sidekick pro to hit the ball to the amateur player on the other side of the net as he (Trump) wanted to win the comp. That’s how it was told to me.

Years ago I sat on a tribunal deciding workers compo claims. In one case, 2 psychiatric, both purporting to apply the DSM criteria to diagnose PTSD to the same set of facts, arrived at diametrically opposite conclusions; one (called by the worker) opined that she had PTSD and would require treatment (by him) for years, the other (for the insurer) opined that the worker was just feeling sad about where her life was going. In such cases, there is no way an opinion can be falsified. There is no science here.

In other cases, pyschiatrists just ignored the criteria where convenient.
