Since cheating is harder in Australia than in the US

Ballot box stuffing would be easier here since our ballots have no ID on them, just a squiggle from an electoral office in one corner. So once a fake ballot is in the box there’s no way to know it is fake.

One of the tricks the Dems have been using is “preloading” ballot boxes with a number of fake ballots. Then they put them out to be filled with real ones on top of the fakes. That wouldn’t be hard to do in Australia if the booth staff were lefties. Scrutineers during counting would never be able to catch such tactics.

I’ve worked in Sydney’s CBD for decades and I’ve seen Lim regularly

I’ve never seen him once and had never even heard of him until the regrettable police contretemps this week. What makes it even more bizarre about the fact I’d never heard of him is that apparently he was on Strathfield council for many years (including when I lived there).

He appears to be a common or garden variety lunatic and should not have been allowed to get away with his appalling behaviour for as long as he has.

But that’s collectivism in a nutshell – tolerating the intolerable as a big FU to normal law abiding citizens trying to peacefully go about their business without being harassed by insane anti-social arseholes, who ideally would be gaol or an insane asylum.

Well, a few things will most likely ensue, one is that I’ll be approached by police and asked to leave the premises so, like Mr Lim I might refuse and then I’ll be embroiled in a physical stoush with the cops and I’ll end up on the floor and alas, hospitalised. But here’s the rub, who here thinks that if I’m charged the luvvies of Sydney will rush to my assistance and cry out “police brutality” and so on? Oh and who here reckons some caring compassionate luvvie will set up a GoF*ckme page for me and I’ll see the money flow in from those luvvies because they think it’s really good that someone walks around draped in a poster with the words “Albo is a C*NT?

South Australian households and businesses will foot a $20 million bill to prevent AGL Energy from closing part of the state’s biggest power station next year, and instead run it for another three years to stave off electricity shortages.

Renewables parasitise off base load fossil fuel generators making it unprofitable to maintain or operate them, government forced to step in with our money so we have some semblance of a reliable dispatchable electricity supply.

From the same article:

The plant uses outdated technology that does not allow it to be ramped up and down to match swings in demand due to the rise of wind and solar power, meaning it can get caught out when wholesale prices dive into negative territory during the day.

“Outdated technology” which – correct me if I’m wrong – is more fuel efficient than ones that have to ramp up and down. Progress!

Mr Nakamura is still making waves.

Scientists demonstrate world’s first continuous-wave lasing of deep-ultraviolet laser diode at room temperature (Phys.org, 24 Nov)

“A research group led by 2014 Nobel laureate Hiroshi Amano at Nagoya University’s Institute of Materials and Systems for Sustainability (IMaSS) in central Japan, in collaboration with Asahi Kasei Corporation, has successfully conducted the world’s first room-temperature continuous-wave lasing of a deep-ultraviolet laser diode (wavelengths down to UV-C region).

These results, published in Applied Physics Letters, represent a step toward the widespread use of a technology with the potential for a wide range of applications, including sterilization and medicine.”

Ultraviolet lasers are cool. Where Mr Nakamura comes in is that he invented the gallium nitride blue laser. Mr Nakamura was the primary recipient of the 2014 Nobel for Physics. I hope Prof. Amano gets another Nobel for this one, but Mr Nakamura will always be one of my heroest heroes. A slightly eccentric electrical engineer working on a blue sky project for an obscure company cracked the jackpot, despite scepticism of of management and a shoestring budget. For which he won the Nobel Prize for Physics and changed the world.

I always think of Badfinger. Multi-million album sellers with several hits on both saides of the Atlantic. Their front man Pete Ham suicided when he couldn’t make a mortgage payment. They’d signed a complex & very bad deal with a manager that left him in charge of all their finances in return for a salary that turned out to be a pittance.

Gaia hates PAL.

Doggone: wet pet food ‘seven times worse’ for climate than dry (Phys.org, 24 Nov)

“The Brazilian study looked at the environmental impact—including greenhouse gas emissions, land use and water usage—of pet food, finding that there was more than a seven-fold increase in CO2 production for a wet diet compared to dry. … The study’s authors examined the environmental impacts of the diets of 618 dogs and 320 cats in Brazil.”

For those who are interested – Scottish doctor Malcolm Kendrick has a blog in which he has put forward his belief that that the Cholesterol theory of heart disease is a myth. Despite opposition from most GPs and certainly from the companies which produce statins, his theory (shared by many medical practitioners) is gaining traction.

Central to his opposition is his belief that most medical research articles (and the peer review system) published in many journals are not worthy of serious attention. His belief that many represent opinions sponsored by pharmaceutical companies.

His sub stack is well worth reading:

This is a post on Jo Nova’s blog. I think it is a beauty & certainly reflects what I think Australia has become :

Throughout most of my life I could never understand how people could descend to the depths of evil required to execute socialism in either of its principal forms, either Fascism conceived by Giovani Gentile and its derivative National Socialism or in Marxian International Socialism.

Thanks to the covid lockups in Australia, especially in Vicdanistan and the willingness of police to follow with enthusiasm the brutal decrees of pyschopathic Dictator Daniel Andrews (with his personality cult), and with an unquestioning willingness to blindly “Just follow orders”, I now have no question how it could happen.

Australia was once considered one of the most egalitarian, freedom loving, authority questioning nations on earth. It no longer is, of course.

Footage of Victoria Police brutalising pregnant women and little old ladies and shooting peaceful fleeing people in the back with rubber bullets is now used in stock footage for police and government brutality worldwide.

In Australia FFS!

If it can happen here, it can happen anywhere.

That’s why the Left should never be allowed to take control, but of course they have, and this is what you get.

Australia is unlikely to be free ever again.

When the opening credits come on for movies these days I often wonder why 5 or 6 production companies are involved in one movie .. gotta be some lurk tax/profit-wise.

Going from memory here, but I recall reading an explanation for this. Something along the lines that the studios set up a company to make the movie and to which revenue flows. Its books are separate and its treatment under tax law is different. The studios then charge the smaller company for services such that the company is only just getting by while the studio rakes in money hand over fist.

I can’t recall which movie it was, but there was a blockbuster (one of the Star Wars) that, in theory, still not turned a profit.

This is from memory and I cannot recall the source, so it could be complete twaddle, but it seems to fit the observable facts.

This has been discussed previously and I’m not sure what the process is in Victoria. However federally you could conceivably and very easily cast multiple votes in your electorate by simply going to each individual polling place and having your name checked off. I simply can’t see how this could be crosschecked among each folder of voters’ names in the various electorate’s polling places.

Dunno what method is used to cross-check the names of who voted. That aside, why go to multiple polling places & check your own name off the roll?
Why not check off a different name at every polling booth? Be much harder to locate the culprit.

A lawyer, who had a wife and 12 children, needed to move because his rental agreement was terminated by the owner who wanted to reoccupy the home.

But he was having a lot of difficulty finding a new house.

When he said he had 12 children, no one would rent a home to him because they felt that the children would destroy the place.

He couldn’t say he had no children, because he couldn’t lie — we all know lawyers cannot and do not lie.

So he sent his wife for a walk to the cemetery with 11 of their kids.

He took the remaining one with him to see rental homes with the real estate agent.

He loved one of the homes and the price was right — the agent asked:

“How many children do you have?

He answered: “Twelve”.

The agent asked “Where are the others?”

The lawyer, with his best courtroom sad look, lowered his head and answered “They’re in the cemetery with their mother”.

MORAL: It’s not necessary to lie, one only needs to choose the right words… and don’t forget, most politicians are, unfortunately, lawyers.

Powerful moment an Indigenous elder calls for ‘blackfella and whitefella’ to work together to end a youth crime spree devastating bush towns: ‘This should be played to all politicians’

Any call from anyone involved in the ongoing disaster that is aboriginal Australia, is just a demand that whitey coughs up money and time to fix the problems that aboriginal Australia is too bloody lazy to deal with themselves.
“You see the problem, you fix the problem.”
Aboriginal Australia refuses to acknowledge the problem because it means they will have to deal with it.

That seems like a very large amount of power from one nuclear sub, the latest Virginia Class reactor only puts out 200MW as far as I can remember.

As a rough guide you need about 1 KW per head of population. So 200 MW will pretty much do for SA as I don’t think it really has heavy industry like aluminium smelting.

Safe & Effective©?

The experimental vaccine – which hasn’t been tested on people yet – offered broad protection against 20 influenza A and B subtypes in animal tests.

Given in two shots, it uses the mRNA technology that was pioneered during the pandemic in Moderna and Pfizer’s Covid vaccines.

It works by delivering instructions that teach cells to create replicas of proteins that appear on all influenza virus surfaces.

This trains the body to remember how to recognize and fight any foreign invaders carrying this protein in future.

The hope is that the universal vaccine would give people a baseline level of immunity that would reduce hospitalizations and deaths each year.

It would also take away the guesswork that goes into developing annual shots months ahead of flu season each year.

Kneel,

What I did say was that it appears you are exaggerating what is happening, and I base that on the actual numbers and your claim of “genocide”.

Indeed. You can spot the unhinged extremists by the way they hate on you and say you’re “sick” and “in denial” because you agreed with 4 out of 5 claims they said. There’s no recognised middle ground between 100% and 0%, apparently.

* The C19 jabs were coerced onto people and that was wrong. => Yes. (I’ve said that last year.)
* People have died from the C19 jabs. => Yes. (find anywhere I said the opposite, you won’t be able.)
* It’s wrong if your own governments are genocidally killing you – no matter how small the percentage. => Yes. (find anywhere I said the opposite, you won’t be able.)
* The Pfizer test data reported only 1 successful pregnancy in 270 jabbed mothers, which is apocalyptic. => Yes. (I said that.)
* The deaths from the jabs are genocide. => No, the stats (even based on absurd assumptions from Kirsch) do not support that characterisation. If this was a plot to depopulate the planet, there is no evidence yet that it is succeeding, it is not a genocide.

Reminder, ABS stats reckon 10,620 people have died from C19 in Australia (to 31 October 2022), which is only 1/3rd the number of people who were initially projected to die from Covid in Queensland alone without any vaccine. Based on CDC’s later IFR (0.3%) it would have been 52500 deaths in Aus by now from covid. If the vaccine’s main purpose was to kill people, why did it in fact have a protective effect against death from C19? That doesn’t make sense. What, the genociders are choosy about what goes on the death certificates?

Think of what events the genocide hypothesis would require for such a goal to be achieved. There is no way less than half the people in Australia have been jabbed, that is 12 million sheeple at minimum (and I’m one of them, baaa). The official figure of “over 95% of people aged 16 and over have had their second dose” is at least in the right ballpark. These jabs had every opportunity during the last 14 months to create a million deaths in Australia alone by this point if that was their purpose. Killing 8% of jabbed people per year isn’t too far fetched if they wanted it completed quickly before anyone figured out a cure. This has not happened. Not by a long shot.

Excess deaths in Australia (ABS) from 1 Jan up to 31 August are 18,671 more than normal in 2022. This is +17% so is very bad. However it requires explanation and is unlikely to be entirely because of a single cause (i.e. jabs). I’m convinced by Congressional testimony and whistleblowers that many of these are from the jabs and if you are simply looking for moral outrage you don’t need to look any further at the percentages. But the claim of murderous intent requires us to know either plans to do so stated prior to 2020, or to know how many post-2020 excess deaths were caused by the jab versus other government non-jab covid policies. These excess deaths are less than 0.15% of jabbed people, probably 0.09% of jabbed people in the first year post rollout (or should that be roll-over). As far as weapons go that is a dud.

Strange how the bioweapon intentionally engineered by DARPA and the CCP PLA to cause disease in humans gets a free pass, whereas the spike protein from the vaccines made by Western pharmaceutical companies that has had an effect in Australia somewhere between protective and as bad as the virus is described as genocidal “mass murder”. The word “murder” implies malicious intent. There is every sign of malicious intention behind the invention of C19 to kill people, but no sign of any intention by the jab makers to kill people. The jab deaths so far are more easily attributed to shoddy product quality on a “warp speed” project than to genocidal intent.

Now that I have again agreed with 4 out of 5 Struthian claims in both the moral and the factual dimensions, I await the continued false accusations of being “sick” and “in denial”.

Novavax isn’t an mrna vax.
Perhaps the hand wringing should stop.

Australians won’t be able to receive a third COVID-19 vaccine booster until at least next year after Australia’s expert vaccine panel concluded an extra booster was unlikely to reduce the current fourth wave of the virus.

The decision by the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation coincided with its approval of a vaccine offering protection from two strains of COVID-19, as well as a paediatric vaccine for at-risk children between six months and five years old.

Review of Thorpe’s office continues following complaint

A cultural review of Senator Thorpe’s office by the Finance Department has been underway after a formal complaint was made to the Greens in June this year.

In it, a former staffer to Senator Thorpe complained that they believed there was a breach of workplace health and safety in the senator’s office.

The staffer said Senator Thorpe “rarely” attended the office, and that when she was asked to come in she would become “defensive and rude”.

“She is often missing and uncontactable, sometimes for days. This makes getting approvals for work incredibly difficult and at times impossible,” the staffer said in a complaint seen by the ABC.

“On more than one occasion she has completely disengaged because she is too overwhelmed and advised all staff not to contact her at all, until she advises otherwise.

“Party members and community members have complained … about her lack of reliability or that in the event she does attend a meeting or event that she was unprepared.”

In the British Medical Journal article re vaccine concerns raised by Pfizer whistleblower the following are noted:

In her 25 September email to the FDA Jackson wrote that Ventavia had enrolled more than 1000 participants at three sites. The full trial (registered under NCT04368728) enrolled around 44?000 participants across 153 sites that included numerous commercial companies and academic centres. She then listed a dozen concerns she had witnessed, including:

Participants placed in a hallway after injection and not being monitored by clinical staff
Lack of timely follow-up of patients who experienced adverse events
Protocol deviations not being reported
Vaccines not being stored at proper temperatures
Mislabelled laboratory specimens, and
Targeting of Ventavia staff for reporting these types of problems.

Re vaccines not being stored at proper temperatures – this was a concern in our family from the very beginning. The storage temperature issue was initially raised by government – though not mentioned thereafter- as critical. Husband was very sceptical whether the mass innoculation sites, transport vagaries and dispensation by various entities, could adhere to strict guidelines.

As I said two days ago, the apocalyptic stat of 1 successful pregnancy from 270, which came from screenshots of the Pfizer documents in the Died Suddenly schlockumentary, is still in need of an explanation. I don’t doubt the authenticity of the documents, but how did they get only 1 in 270 to full term and still proceed anyway?
That video started with an embalmer saying a completely loony statement misunderstanding Bill Gates in the first 5 minutes and it didn’t get much better. So a strong chance the document was misrepresented – ie the meaning is incorrect even though the screenshot is legit.

Conflict of Interest: Reuters ‘Fact Checks’ COVID-Related Social Media Posts, But Fails to Disclose Ties to Pfizer, World Economic Forum
Reuters is now in the business of “fact-checking” Facebook and Twitter posts about COVID vaccines — despite having ties to Pfizer, World Economic Forum and Trusted News Initiative.

Excerpts:
In the tweet, Malone showed the LinkedIn profile of Jim Smith:

Jim Smith, who sits on Pfizer’s board, is also former president and current chairman of the Thomson Reuters Foundation, and CEO and director of Reuters parent company, Thomson Reuters Corporation — a $1.53 billion publicly traded “provider of financial information … to businesses, governments and individuals worldwide.”

**

The Pfizer-Reuters connection

As Malone pointed out in his Twitter and LinkedIn posts, Smith was appointed to Pfizer’s board in 2014.

According to Pfizer’s website, Smith is a member of the board’s audit committee and chair of the compensation committee, which among other responsibilities, establishes annual and long-term performance goals and objectives for Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla, and determines compensation for Bourla and the executive leadership team.

But Smith also serves as chairman of the Thomson Reuters Foundation, which describes itself as “the corporate foundation of Thomson Reuters, the global news and information services company.”

The foundation says its mission is “to advance media freedom, foster more inclusive economies and promote human rights.”

According to its website, the foundation supports “local media to produce accurate, impartial and reliable journalism that bolsters government and business accountability and ensures public access to information.”

The foundation says it also trains “reporters around the world, promoting integrity, independence and freedom from bias in news reporting.”

But as Malone pointed out, Reuter’s fact-checking initiative regularly “fact-checks” content pertaining to COVID vaccines — including Pfizer’s vaccine — even though Smith sits on Pfizer’s board while also serving as chairman of the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

Meloni Set to Abolish Italy’s Welfare State

From Armstrong Economics –

“Italy’s new PM Giorgia Meloni revealed her first economic initiatives with the Budget. The Italian government will no longer provide free handouts to those who simply refuse to work. This should not be controversial.

For starters, anyone eligible for welfare must actually reside in Italy. Those capable of working will have eight months to find employment before their free paycheck runs out. Alternatively, if someone refuses a job, they will be excluded from receiving welfare. The 5-Star’s citizens’ wage will be abolished by next year as the system has been abused by many who simply do not want to work. They are reviewing the pension system as well, but it’s too late to save the pension funds.

Italy’s first female PM is also encouraging couples to start families amid a birth rate crisis. Women may take a sixth month of maternity leave and still receive 80% of their salary. Meloni cut taxes on goods for newborns and feminine hygiene. Couples will receive a 50% increase in the “baby bonus,” and families with over three children will receive more incentives. Italy needs future taxpayers.

Everyone cheered when America appointed its first female vice president, but Kamala Harris has done nothing for women who still pay the pink tax and do not have access to maternity leave. It is astonishing how controversial this move has become with the papers calling Meloni a Fascist dictator for preventing working taxpayers from paying for those unemployed by choice.”

On his way out he says to the second one in the waiting room “Now whatever you do, don’t shut that door, he’s trying to trick you”

Of course it was an idea that never got off the ground.

But we will need rain soon if we are to get the sorghum seeded. Typical of this area, the moisture profile at depth is perfect but the light loams that sit on top of the volcanic have dried out.
A few neighbours have spoken of ripping, but my daughter refuses to interfere with the soil profile and I agree with her.
Given the cost of fuel and labour, ripping would be prohibitive.

Yes, Morrison is a klutz and overdid the secret ministries.

He misjudged but he has a case. He does have a case.

It could have turned out differently. given the sudden death syndrome you needed someone to step in to unexpected but important roles at short notice. He would be the obvious choice as anyone else would have to consult with him anyway.

Labor is trying to turn this into a bid for Unholy Antipodean Emperor status. It was nothing of the sort. It was the response of a reactive drone. In the military it’s what you would expect from an officer at around major level.

No need for the special legislation going through now.

Things that never came from Craig Foster’s piehole or Harry Kane:

“Shame on you respect others culture,” added another.

“Please respect other countries religions and customs,” pleaded a third.

These comments are in relation to a former Miss Croatia Ivana Knoll. If you Google image the name, you will find she is rather hot.
The comments are in relation to what she has been wearing, which has been rather tight and cleavage abounding.

Don’t ever forget – Lydia Thorpe’s claim to Aboriginal status is based on an Aboriginal great grandmother, who was half Aboriginal…

My Big Sis married a man who had an obviously aboriginal mother. Her son, my nephew, had a daughter who like Thorpe now has through him a part-aboriginal great grandmother. The idea of my great neice defining herself as aboriginal due to this distant genetic relationship is ludicrous. She also has Maori heritage through her mother, which is of more interest to her, but not a defining one. My nephew certainly never made any claims to aboriginality either, and nor did his father, my sister’s husband, via his aboriginal mother. We grew up in the Mt. Druitt area where many local families had some aboriginal relatives. Noone thought anything of it. We were all Australians, and all workers. No slackers. Occasionally you’d see a few sad drunkards, both white and aboriginal, helped along by kin.

Thorpe is a fake.

now that our face to face interactions are reduced by reliance and addiction to technology.

I had one of the usual small family dramas in a phone call this morning (it was upsetting being shrieked at by someone in meltdown) but I put off attending to it until after my dance class and coffee with the girls. And wonderful that was, endorphins up and running and coffee-enhanced sharing and supporting; everyone has their story. The one going through chemo and radiotherapy looked fantastic in her new hair-covering hood, we were all very admiring of it and unspoken too admiring her courage. Lots of hugs for her, and a couple for me re the old usual problemo (which was best left to cool for a while), from another friend in the same boat. Face to face interaction is essential in life.

Sites like the Cat can offer much needed comfort and support on certain issues (such as experienced for examply by Duk) but personal issues are necessarily less canvassed, especially by the reticent. Cats do come good though for serious life crises, as we’ve seen with many over the years.

“This is just more histrionic Labor posturing.”

Well of course but Labor are good at such posturing whereas the Liberals are hopeless. Labor are good at smears, hence the smears of Nazis and white supremacist from Vic Labor. And just wait, federal Labor will do the same, they’ll start smearing the Liberals and Nationals as friendly to and cosying up to Nazis. All of this is about silencing their political opponents and it’s easy for them because they have the MSM on their side. So, Labor will milk the Morrison portfolio stuff it for as long as possible however I have a little feeling that all their posturing is beginning to fall on deaf ears. They’ve been in power for six months. People are receiving their electricity bills yet Sleazy attends a wankfest GQ awards, that shows his priorities.

An investigation of official statistics has found that the number of athletes who died suddenly between the beginning of 2021 and April 2022 rose exponentially compared to the yearly number of deaths of athletes officially recorded between 1966 and 2004.

So much so that the monthly average number of deaths between January 2021 and April 2022 was 1,700% higher than the monthly average between 1966 and 2004, and the current trend for 2022 so far shows this could increase to 4,120% if the increased number of deaths continues, with the number of deaths in March 2022 alone 3 times higher than the previous annual average.
