A man’s wife doesn’t come home one night. The next morning, the wife tells her husband that she had slept over at a friend’s house. The husband then contacted all of his wife’s friends asking about it. None of them said that she was staying the night. A few nights later, the husband doesn’t come home one night. Just like his wife, the next morning he tells her that he had slept over at a friend’s place. His wife then contacted all of her husband’s friends to ask about and apparently the husband was at 8 houses, 2 of which said he was still there!

Frank what about Short Willie’s pronunciation of wiff and finking.

It is not the pronunciation, but the practice.

By the way, something stuck in my head. I worked with an English “dude” whose father was once the CEO of Rolls Royce Engines. Nice guy. I learned at the time that working there was one of the highest paying jobs in the UK outside of the City (finance) in pretty much all catogories.

Attacks like this on Rosie are uncalled for.
They are perfectly justified as she posts bullshit. The HCQ /heart palpitations thing was dealt with by Duk and myself earlier. It was a bullshit study designed to fail.

So why not politely remind Rosie of this? Or simply review the substance rather than viciously attacking someone for making a comment that you disagree with?

A lot of people here post what I think is bullshit. But I either ignore it, or address it if I wish to do so.
That goes for everyone here, as we all have opinions, and most people manage to not be abusive.

Or do you have the view that only a ‘correct’ perspective may be addressed here?
That suggests to me that the idea of debate is long gone from Catallaxy, for it used not to be so.

It gets harder and harder to shock people (9 Feb)

But that’s probably not going to shock most people’s actual Grammy and Grampy:

I regret to inform you that singing in a devil costume may not have the intended shock value on your grandpa, who was tripping balls while watching Ozzy bite the head off a live bat and Mick Jagger ride a 60 foot long inflatable dick 50 years ago

A confession: I missed those two Boomer highlights.

Actually, though, the Ozzy-bat-biting incident wasn’t even during the 60s, it was in 1982. And it was an accident.

Yes, an accident. Sort of, anyway”

A noted psychiatrist was a guest at a blonde gathering, and his hostess naturally broached the subject in which the doctor was most at ease. “Would you mind telling me, doctor” she asked “how you detect a mental deficiency in somebody who appears completely normal?” “That’s easy” he replied “you ask them a simple question which everyone should be able to answer with no trouble. If they hesitate, that puts you on the right track”. “What sort of question would you ask, doctor?” “Well, you might ask them… Captain Cook made three trips around the world and died during one of them. Which one?” The blonde thought a moment, then said with a nervous laugh “You wouldn’t happen to have another example, would you?” “I must confess I don’t know much about history”……………………..lol

“I thought it was a rubber bat,” [as you do] Osbourne said. “I picked it up, put it in my mouth, crunched down, bit into it, being the clown that I am.”

As blood filled his mouth and people in the crowd looked on with horror, he realized he’d made a horrible mistake. “Bats are the biggest carriers of rabies in the world,” he said. “And I had to go to the hospital afterwards and they started giving me rabies shots. I had one one each rear [I think he means each cheek] and I had to have that every night.

My only interest here is keeping the place as an open forum for everyone, not just a restricted ground for those who conform to a particular viewpoint on matters of contention. Rosie has done well here to speak up against some extreme positions about the Covid vaxxes, such as those put forward by Struth. I also dislike abusive language, especially when directed from men to a woman. In that regard, I am rather old-fashioned. As was Sinc .. as I recall.

The ‘sun exposure = melanoma’ model doesn’t explain everything about melanoma causation. Yes, sun exposure is related to melanoma, yes, countries with higher UV exposure tend to have higher melanoma rates …BUT … said Melanomas DO NOT only occur in the sun exposed parts of the body.

The immune system, also, is obviously crucial in your own natural defence against melanoma (and likely all other cancers too), which makes the new ‘immunotherapy’ for melanoma so promising, but also the immune suppressing effects of the vax more concerning – cancer is spiking post vax. A plastic surgeon I know saw 6 ‘turbo cancers’ last year when he would normally see zero or 1. Most of these were melanomas.

The Hungarian foreign minister issues an official statement after the worsening of Hungarian-Ukrainian relations: “Law after law, they reduce the rights of ethnic Hungarians in Ukraine.”

Curious.

Not really. The Minister said they parked the issue when the war began because it wasn’t appropriate to say more at the time. Now, a new law has reinforced the marginalisation of Hungarians and other minorities.

Ukraine adopted the law “On National Minorities (Communities) of Ukraine” in the second reading. Legislators completely ignored the constructive proposals that were made earlier by Hungarian and other minority group organizations. The legislation not only strengthens all the restrictions that were previously codified in the Education and State Language Acts, but implements new ones as well. For example, it does not guarantee the preservation of compact ethnic settlement areas, or the use of one’s national symbols. The law interprets minority rights exclusively as rights that can be exercised individually by persons belonging to a minority group, which deprives national minorities (their communities, organizations) of any institutionally exercisable political, educational, and language rights, and therefore the ability to influence their own destiny.

……the (new) law in its current form (does not) implement the Ukrainian Constitution’s provisions, nor Ukraine’s international legal obligations as regards the protection of the rights of national minorities. The adopted law does not guarantee adequate institutional foundations or legal mechanisms for the implementation and protection of the rights of national minorities.

Hungarian support for Ukraine has been lukewarm (at best) with repeated polls showing the overwhelming majority (90%) of Hungarians not wanting to get involved. Late last year Hungary vetoed an 18 billion euro EU financial assistance package to Ukraine and this latest Ukrainian law impacting the Hungarian minority (200,000+ persons) is probably some quid pro quo. As an aside, the EU devised a ‘work around’ of the veto and the funds are/will flow to the Ukraine.

The Ukrainian Government are probably cackling in their boots. Got the money and slapped the Hungarians. Happy days.

The Foreign Minister is annoyed hence the public expression of displeasure. For local consumption but will solidify the Hungarian public against any assistance to Ukraine.

Another attack on those who have done stuff in their lives. Hun:

Debate is raging over proposals for naming rights to Geelong Football Club’s soon-to-be opened northern stand.

The two-tier 14,000 capacity stand (set to be opened mid-season) will complete the Kardinia Park redevelopment after the Victorian State Government alone has contributed around $250 million.

The area and ground is controlled by the Kardinia Park Stadium Trust, a body that recently requested suggestions from the public for potential names for the new stand (the Trust was unavailable for comment on Friday).

Two early favourites emerged in recently retired captain Joel Selwood and club saviour and former president Frank Costa.

And while those two names have huge public support, a third suggestion with strong Government backing has emerged in the form of Djilang, which is the original Indigenous name for Geelong as used by the Wadawurrung tribe back in the early 1800s.

What say you, Duk?

Skin cancers include squamous and basal cell cancers, which typically occur in sun damaged skin, spread late and grow slowly.

Melanomas also typically occur in the skin, but NOT in necessarily in sun damaged or sun exposed skin, and spread early – they are much nastier, and are OFTEN spread when the first skin spot is found – sometimes no skin spot can be found to account for the secondaries,

Although I never stay in hotels, or stand on balconies, what difference does it make where I am when I disagree about the vaxx injury theories, because that is all they are.
For example, not once when there has been vulturing on a ‘sudden death’ of a minor or even major celebrity have the family of the person pointed at a vaccine as the culprit.

A Danish man entered the international cow milking competition.

The man was considered a legend in Denmark and it was said that he could get any cow to produce 20 litres of milk at a time. The people of his country, including his wife and children, were sure that the Danish man would win the competition.

The American first went up on stage – the crowd cheered loudly. Two women then brought a cow on stage and walked her up to the American. The American got down on his knees and began milking the cow. He went all in and eventually ended up getting the cow to produce 8 litres of milk.

The crowd cheered loudly as he left the stage.

Then an Indian fellow went on stage. Another cow was brought in and he began milking her. He ended up producing 12 litres of milk! The crowd cheered even more loudly than before as he left the stage.

Then came time for the Danish man. The crowd cheered loudly as he entered the stage and kept screaming “Legend! Legend! Legend!” A cow was then brought to him. The Danish man began milking the cow. To everyone’s surprise he could only get cow to produce 4 litres of milk.

Disappointed, the crowd began to boo him off stage. His wife and kids were shocked and the people watching him from Denmark broke their television sets out of frustration.

As they were travelling back home, his wife said “You’ve disappointed your entire country. Don’t you feel even a bit ashamed?”

The man said “Ashamed? Absolutely. Those motherf*ckers gave me a bull!”

…just don’t your dare tell someone your decision to get the jab was based on good health advice.

You can’t back it up.

It was based on a gamble against what were then unknowns, particularly for an elderly person with comorbidities. I knew that then and took the gamble, as did many other Cats on this site. I will point out that I also took the gamble of freely travelling the world during the early stages of the Covid hysteria, rejecting that hysteria for myself. The vaxxes may have been protective for some (data is variable and poorly disaggregated), but it is clear that the Covid vaxx side-effects have been totally untenable for widespread population vaccination. I have noted that here as more data comes to hand and from my own family’s experiences; vaxxes against weaker strains seem to be quite unnecessary, indeed counter-productive immunologically. Big Pharma is worth investigating re its Covid venturing, but it is also a fact of modern life, and we would be unwise to reject it entirely in its huge research functions.

I also wrote and published by June 2020 an article in Quadrant recognising the nature of some of the Covid ‘pandemic’ uncertainties and over-reactions. This is more than many others here did, and as an MPH I also signed the Great Barrington Declaration. Hairy and I during 2020-22 welcomed unvaxxed people to gatherings in our home with hugs and have never approved of anything mandatory about the Covid vaxx or any other.

‘Health advice’ always comes with caveats. If you’d had anything to do with medicine and medical research or epidemiology you would know that. I had that experience, and I knowingly took the gamble at the time. I have also taken one Novavax booster, even after having had Covid, to my original two AZ shots and my choice there was very much travel related. I do not intend to accept any further Covid or mRNA ‘vaccinations’. I have no idea whether I personally have received any ‘protection’ from Covid vaxxes. I am well and have travelled widely recently, with only a 3-day cold in the US to hinder me.

It is a mystery to me why I am constantly called up0n here to justify myself re taking the Covid vaxx. I am just one of many here who have done so, and willingly. If Covid were to flare again into something demonstrably highly dangerous to me, I would be looking at newer (maybe oral) vaxxes to assist my survival from 80 to 90! As well as looking at newer treatments.

It’s also found lodged on/in organs. it may be explained as secondary because it’s very “spreadie”, no?

It wasn’t my area of practice, but IIRR, melanoma primaries usually occur in the skin (producing black freckles that spread locally). Their shape and early behaviour – only one, with obvious invasion at the edges, marks them as primaries. In contrast, secondaries are generally deep and multiple. On that basis, I think, they distinguish the primary from the secondaries, but they do spread early and sometimes no primary is found. The point being, I think, is that SOLO melanomas (ie likely primaries) are generally cutaneous, and secondaries multiple.

It’s very noticeable. The sun is very intense in Australia vs the US or Europe.

I must say that whilst I did find the Middle Eastern Sun *extremely bright*. We wore sunglasses on a cord around the neck, and as we went outside, would reflexively jam the eyes tightly shut whilst groping for the sunnies.

Having said that, the sun did seem much less burny than the Australian sun, possibly because the air was *always* hazy from smoke and desert sand dust in the air. I wonder if it was filtering the UV.

One day my husband was shaving with just his undies on when I noticed on his back a mole had turned cancerous. As an old nurse I recognised the charcoal look of the mole as being cancer. I straight away got him to go to the doctor who confirmed the diagnosis and referred him to a professor at RPA hospital.
He was operated on with a fifty percent chance of beating it because of the depth of the growth. He had 147 stitches back then (such is no longer allowed to because classed as disfiguration). The professor who did the op said he was a keen gardener who liked to eradicate the weed and their roots.
There was no chemotherapy or radiotherapy (thank God) back then in 1987 for melanoma but thanks to the brilliant surgery he survived another 19yrs till bowel cancer took him.
One thing I noticed when we would go for yearly skin checkups at the private rooms of the surgeon was that most of the patients in the waiting room were very fair in appearance, looking Scottish or Dutch. My husband was Dutch.
My husband had been in Dutch New Guinea for two years in the Dutch Marines wearing when off duty only shorts, and had on arrival here is Aus worked for two years in shorts without a shirt as a carpenter doing framing in Qld.

Surprising finding in battle to eradicate homophobia in sport

An Australian world-first study has found that education sessions delivered by professional athletes about the dangers of homophobic slurs is ineffective in curbing harmful language among young rugby union players.

According to the study, 55 per cent of players who took part reported using homophobic language with teammates in the preceding two weeks.

A follow-up survey found that 61 per cent had reported using the same language following the education session.

It strikes me that the study is telling us the main danger stems from running woke coaching sessions with young men engaged in sport.

A couple are spending their first night together after tying the knot.

The new bride leans over to her husband and says “I have a confession to make”. “Oh yeah? Who was the guy?” “Tiger Woods, the golfer”.

The husband nods and says “Well, he’s rich, famous and handsome. I can understand that”.

The couple then makes passionate love.

When they finish, the husband reaches for the telephone.

“What are you doing?” asks the wife. “I’m hungry. I’m calling room service”. “Tiger wouldn’t do that”. “Oh yeah? What would Tiger do?” “He’d come back to bed and we’d make love a second time”.

The husband drops the phone and makes love to his wife a second time.

When they finish, he goes back to the phone.

“What are you doing now?” she asks. The man replies “I’m still hungry, so I’m going to ring room service for some food”. “Tiger wouldn’t do that”. “Oh yeah? What would Tiger do?” “He’d come back to bed and we’d make love a THIRD time”.

The husband puts the phone down and heads back to bed.

Exhausted after the third lovemaking session, he picks up the phone and starts to dial.

The wife asks “Are you calling room service?” The man replies “No! I’m calling Tiger Woods to find out what’s par for this hole!”

A Zombie Apocalypse Of Morons…

Eggs. It’s definitely the eggs. Not just eggs. Meat, too. Stay away from both. Eat your bugs and be happy you dirty little grubs.

It would seem there is an epidemic of crooks posing as researchers. I don’t know where they find these people but they ought to be put up against a wall for facilitating crimes against humanity.

Of course, this comes on the back of newly released video footage of Project Veritas, which is — ahem —compromising.

The MSM immediately had a cardiac moment themselves and began furiously publishing hit pieces on Project Veritas, conveniently steering away from the actual footage and topic.

So now what?

Sadly, probably nothing. It’s not like the police are going to go and arrest Pfizer management as they should. How many times have we seen egregious crimes being committed in the open with zero accountability and recourse? I’ve lost count.

The Zeitgeist Is Definitely Changing

Remember how we discussed in a recent issue that most people are actually “vaccine hesitant?” That is a loss of trust.

And now this. Not good for trust.

A recent Rasmussen report concluded that 57% of Americans want the CDC investigated.

Now, we need to be cautious with any poll done as the sample size and the region (or regions) it’s conducted in can skew the results wildly.

Still, this is almost certainly much, much higher than it would have been back in 2020. That’s good. More folks are waking up.

What else?

They Knew: Why Didn’t The Unvaccinated Do More To Warn Us?

Hahaha! This one. I swear, I’m not making this up, though I’m still unsure if it’s a parody. You never know these days. I mean, the MSM is going to put the Onion out of business, so…

They knew: why didn’t the unvaccinated do more to warn us?

The unvaccinated knew what we didn’t. Some of them said too little. Most said nothing at all. A lot of blood is now on their hands.

As the world struggles to come to terms with the devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, one question that continues to surface is why the unvaccinated didn’t do more to warn us about the potential dangers of being injected.

While well intending citizens lined up, did the right thing, and received their COVID19 vaccinations — now seeming to do more harm than good –– their unvaccinated friends stood by and let them do it. Some of them said too little. Some said nothing at all.

Even though they knew what we didn’t.

Our blood is now on their hands.

Those are strong words. But the unvaccinated had access to important information about the potential side effects of vaccines. They knew about the risks of severe allergic reactions, blood clots, and other serious health complications. They knew that vaccines did not immunize us. They knew it wasn’t effective, and that they can cause more harm than good.

They knew all of that, but instead of warning us, the unvaccinated chose to remain silent. They chose to look the other way and not speak out about the potential dangers of vaccines. They let millions of good folks who did the right thing (at the time) fall to death and disease, and many antivaxxers even gloated online about how their coin flip had been the right bet. The more diabolical even urged folks they disagree with to “get boosted.”

It has become all too clear. The silence of the unvaccinated was a dangerous, sociopathic, and irresponsible decision that has had serious consequences for those of us who received the vaccinations.

And silence is, after all, consent.

It is time for the unvaccinated to take responsibility for their actions and to work with the rest of us to find a solution to this crisis. We cannot afford to let their selfishness and lack of action continue to harm our communities. It is time for the unvaccinated to step up and do the right thing.

The unvaccinated should by any moral measuring stick have done more to warn about the potential risks — to help us make informed decisions about our health. And they must now ask us for our forgiveness.
And, hand to heart, we may just give it to them.

Because we are good people. We took those injections because it was the right thing to do — until it wasn’t.

But wait, that’s not all. Check this beauty at the end.

Inclusive! Unless you want to leave a comment.

Gotta love the rainbow colors. Soooo inclusive, but not if you want to comment.

And what of the moderators? “Traumatized?” What are they made of? Cardboard.

So why are we seeing this? Remember when you were a kid and you did something wrong, (stole some chocolate out of the cupboard or whatever) and then lied about it? And the closer you got to having the lie being revealed the more you understood you needed to change strategy. The lie no longer worked. You needed something else. A justification or someone to blame. “Well, Mum it was that neighbour of ours, you know Joey. Yeah, it was Joey who came over and I thought it might be OK to offer him some… you know, being a good neighbour and all that.”

This is shifting the blame to Joey while attempting to put oneself in a positive light. “Oh gee love, that was rather thoughtful of you to want to offer our neighbour something. I guess you’re not such a bad kid, after all. I’ll let this one go then.”

THIS is what they’re trying.

What it means is an act of desperation as what has been as obvious as mud to us from early 2020 finally — and at an accelerating pace — becomes too big an elephant to hide.

It was based on a gamble against what were then unknowns

Yes. Trump for example had to accept the “expert” advice from Fauci and the CDC. Which led to Operation Warp Speed. It’s only now that we know those people were complete lefty wackos.

The HCQ anathemization came because Trump recommended it. The Left couldn’t accept that so got it banned. Ivermectin was banned thereafter because it was like HCQ, even though Trump was careful to say nothing about it.

And here we are, now, stuck in a fascist health system controlled by utter maniacs.

About the only good thing out of this whole mess is that the expert class have soiled their own nest, big time. That goes increasingly for all the elites’ pet ideologies including global warming.

If you want to read something worthwhile, that article upthread linking to a woman who used to work in the gender dysphoria clinic of a major US hospital is well worth perusing. What is going on there, and in the more than 100 other similar US hospital-attached clinics, is nothing short of institutionalised child abuse, as she documents in her emails.

Children as young as eleven are being given puberty blockers being assured that they will do no harm, and the whole sexual development and physical integrity of the child is then put assunder. Females given testosterone bleed from torn vaginas if they have intercourse, and males given oestrogen develop urinary problems, plus in both sexes there is sudden diabetes and high blood pressure and many other physiologically deleterious changes occur in these kids. Added to that is the surgical manipulations of these young bodies which also produce horrifying results both psychologically for the child and also physically.

Republican Senator “Can’t Rule Out” Revelations In Explosive Hersh Report

Republican Senator Mike Lee of Utah is a lone Congressional voice this week who admitted that Seymour Hersh’s explosive report How America Took Out The Nord Stream Pipeline has given him serious pause.

He wrote on Twitter that he “can’t immediately rule out” the idea that the US was behind the Nord Stream natural gas pipeline sabotage. Importantly, he inquired of fellow Senators over whether they had been tipped off or notified by the Biden administration of any covert ops related to the Nord Stream pipelines.

Mike Lee
@BasedMikeLee

I’m troubled that I can’t immediately rule out the suggestion that the U.S. blew up Nord Stream. I checked with a bunch of Senate colleagues. Among those I’ve asked, none were ever briefed on this. If it turns out to be true, we’ve got a huge problem.

Importantly, the Hersh report asserted that Congress wasn’t notified of the secret plan carried out by the CIA utilizing an elite team of Navy deep-sea divers because it was intentionally downgraded from being deemed a covert operation (which would require Congressional notification). Hersh had cited a source “with direct knowledge of the operational planning.”

Instead, says the Hersh report, the sabotage operation became formally a “highly classified intelligence operation with US military support” and that the change meant that there was “no longer a legal requirement to report the operation to Congress.”

Despite Sen. Lee highlighting the revelations, the White House press pool has remained silent in terms of pressing the Biden admin. on the Pulitzer Prize winning journalist’s findings.

However, on Thursday a reporter in the State Department’s daily briefing room did inquire of the Hersh report. State Dept spokesman Ned Price tried to bat it down and move on, dismissing Hersh’s reporting “utter and complete nonsense” and which should “be rejected out of hand by anyone looking at it through an objective lens.”

Could it be that folks who are always in the sun are far less prone to melanoma as their bodies adjust? Australia, by virtue of our climate, is an outdoorsy sort of place, but with the highest incidence in the world, which has a great deal of relevance, I think. If your claim was right, then incidence would be evenly spread over the world, especially in places with tough winters that cause folks to remain indoors more and therefore be bombarded with artificial light.

Perhaps it could be something to do with lack of vitamin D. I read somewhere that older folks are more prone to melanoma. Perhaps they’re indoors more and lack vitamin D or their bodies are less able to make adjustments. If you see a person with great hunks of their scalp dug out, foreheads or even faces lopped off, it’s always old folk.

Another Oracle that know me better than I know myself.
I got vaccinated at my daughter’s urging because I have risk factors that are none of your business.
The travel option at the end of 2021 was a bonus.
There are now zero requirements to get vaccinated in order to travel to Europe but nevertheless I got a booster because I deemed it prudent.
I have no more concern about vaccine side effects for this vaccine than I do for any other medication or vaccine in terms of risk, because there is always some risk.
And I won’t have any concerns until someone provides credible evidence, not sky is falling headless chicken nonsense every time some minor celebrity dies.
As I’ve pointed out before, the vast majority of Australians over 60 were given Astrazeneca, the vast majority of excess deaths in Australia are people over 60.
The next Australian mortality report will be released on 23 February 2023.
What will you all do if things are heading back to normal.
Meanwhile only having less that two months to live according to Truth by Struth I’m enjoying myself in my usual modest budget kind of way.

If you see a person with great hunks of their scalp dug out, foreheads or even faces lopped off, it’s always old folk.

That’s right, but I think you’ll find that’s from Basal and Squamous Cell Carcinomas, not Melanomas.
What’s done to oldsters in Homes is disgusting, but Fluorescent Light contains UV-A light, which is harmless, UV-B light, which is beneficial, UV-C light, which will eventually cause Cancer.
Perspex shielding stops the UV-C rays, but you’ll notice in Supermarkets
the Checkout and Deli Operators work under Fluoro light which are quite close.
The light is diffused but not shielded.
Anecdotally, I’ve heard cancer rates among some female Supermarket staff, particularly women in the Deli, is pretty high.

I’ve just returned from spending the afternoon with my mother and my sister. Last night my mother had a fall, at about 9.30 p.m. She was unable to get up. My stepfather is 91 years old and a virtual cripple so he was unable to assist her however she managed to move, snake like, to the couch where she grabbed her handbag and foraged for her phone to ring my nephew who lives in Bondi Junction. My nephew and his wife immediately went over and were able to help her up, and dressed her head as she’d smashed her head whilst falling down and there was a lot of blood. My mother said to my nephew that there was no way, no way in the world that she would willingly go to St Vincent’s emergency in Darlinghurst, especially on a Friday night. Over the last three years she’s been taken to St Vincent’s emergency about four or five times and has ended up waiting/sitting on a stretcher for hours. It’s abysmal. I don’t blame her for not wanting to go to hospital. Surely there must be a better way for hospitals to operate? Anyway, it appears that it’s a recurrence of her gout. My sister collected me today and we went over this afternoon and my mother was in good spirits, despite her hair being matted with dried blood. I looked at her head and luckily there was no deep gash however it was badly bruised. She was very coherent and happy to see her two daughters. We had collected food from a patisserie in Darlinghurst and took over some delicious tarts and baguettes. However, she’d taken out her frustration on my poor stepfather who cannot remember her falling. My stepfather told me that he was very glad that we were there. I asked him if he remembers anything and he said no and he said she blames him for her fall. When we walked into the apartment, it was stifling because all the windows were closed and it was dark. They don’t like putting on lights or air-conditioning.

WIll Russia Have Any Choice But to Nuke Ukraine?

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong, does your computer suggest that Russia will launch nuclear weapons on Ukraine?

Your computer seems to be the only straight no-nonsense in the middle of this insanity.

Thank you

SK

ANSWER: The West is the aggressor and they are out to destroy Russia pretending that they are saving the planet because it is a major fossil fuel producer. That is not nonsense, It is real.

What I can say is that there is an element inside Russia who have been pressing for them to just nuke Ukraine pointing out that when the US did that to Japan, it ended the war. They see this now as a war against NATO, which has been perfectly fine if every Ukrainian citizen dies for their end goal. To appear more human than the United States, Russia would give the civilians 72 hours to leave the area. They would justify themselves by pointing to the USA which gave no effective notice to civilians other than listing a number of cities and not really explaining what would happen with one nuclear bomb. It gave the impression of just bombing where people could take shelter below ground. Russia would make it clear this is a tactical or strategic nuclear weapon so leave now. Zelensky would be the first to flee.

The West has been pushing for war and the US/NATO have been hoping to destroy Russia conventionally and then just walk into Moscow to a TICJER-TAPE PARADE that they expected and never got. These people are delusional. Russia is now well aware that this is a strategic war to destroy their country once and for all. The attack on the pipeline demonstrates that this was a permanent action to cut off all fossil fuel sales to Europe. The West is pushing Russia into a corner and they now realize this is to destroy Russia as a nation. That will not leave many options. The US and NATO are not prepared to leave Russia still standing as a superpower and one of the largest producers of fossil fuels.

The US leaflet they dropped on some 50 cities read:

The ‘LeMay Leaflet’
“Read this carefully as it may save your life or the life of a relative or friend. In the next few days, some or all of the cities named on the reverse side will be destroyed by American bombs. These cities contain military installations and workshops or factories which produce military goods. We are determined to destroy all of the tools of the military clique which they are using to prolong this useless war. But, unfortunately, bombs have no eyes. So, in accordance with America’s humanitarian policies, the American Air Force, which does not wish to injure innocent people, now gives you warning to evacuate the cities named and save your lives. America is not fighting the Japanese people but is fighting the military clique which has enslaved the Japanese people. The peace which America will bring will free the people from the oppression of the military clique and mean the emergence of a new and better Japan. You can restore peace by demanding new and good leaders who will end the war. We cannot promise that only these cities will be among those attacked but some or all of them will be, so heed this warning and evacuate these cities immediately.”

Because the Government “health” department pitched the Vaccine to old people first and Aged Care residents in particular.
Once they were mostly 100% shot, they expanded the rollout to 50-65s, now it’s babies on up.
Bottom Line:
Despite claims that more or less everyone had The Shot, the reality is that most people not living in a Nursing Home won’t volunteer to go to their GP just to get a needle in the arm.

More secrets of the spy balloon: Shooting down the balloon worked as a military drill for the U.S.
China Insights
As subsequent events unfold, we have noticed that this incident is inconsistent with Xi’s agenda of trying to de-escalate international relations, particularly with the U.S. It should have revealed the internal strife within the CCP. The top brass of the PLA could have deliberately launched a balloon to sabotage Blinken’s visit to China.
It would be tricky for Taiwan’s defense, and it may take a relatively long decision time to respond to this kind of ambiguous provocation, thus losing the opportunity to act in a timely manner.
From a military perspective, the good thing about the balloon incident is that the U.S. military has made full use of this unexpected event to achieve the effect of a real-world combat exercise.

Re Geelong, a few years ago I read William Buckleys story, sort of a biography. He recounts his many years living with the aborigines of the western side of Port Phillip Bay. I don’t recall him referring to the name of the district as the aborigines knew it anywhere. I will read it agin to check but have three other book son the go at the moment. Perhaps someone here with time would check it out. Buckley had many years living with the Port Phillip tribes, the so called ‘Historians’ of today discount his memoirs as he was illiterate and they were were transcribed by others.

Not requiring one to leave is a recent event as the Australian Mongocracy continues to be bludgeoned with reality.

Right now 90% of the population are not technically vaccinated, most have had COVID and you can now travel anywhere without a certificate. WTF was the last two years of Bullshit about? “We done f’cked up!” Ain’t going to cut it.
