    The Forced Medication of All Citizens

    Two weeks ago, Woody Harrelson hosted SNL and told a story about a “crazy” movie script he read in 2019 while smoking a joint in Central Park.

    The movie goes like this: The biggest drug cartels in the world get together and buy up all the media and all the politicians and force all the people in the world to stay locked in their homes. And people can only come out if they take the cartel’s drugs and keep taking them over and over.”

    Hey! Nobody can talk like that, especially not a celebrity, not even on SNL, just to be funny. Immediately, his comedy routine had to be debunked. Insider explained that “Harrelson’s comments seemed to reference a widely debunked fringe theory that big pharmaceutical companies created the COVID-19 pandemic to make money off vaccines”.

    Too radical, you say. Read on and see.

    It won’t be soon before every day or week of the year is dedicated to some group trying to split us up into warring factions.

    The latest assault is on ‘Harmony Day’ (a stupid concept, oh well) introduced by the Howard government. It is supposed to be kumbiya stuff, but now it is under attack as:

    The federal government is facing calls to restore Harmony Day to its original and internationally recognised name, with the Greens saying it “whitewashes historic and ongoing racism in Australia”.

    Harmony Day is marked across Australia on March 21, a date which is globally known as the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

    Greens Senator Mehreen Faruqi has written to Multicultural Affairs Minister Andrew Giles urging the government revert Harmony Day back to its original “name purpose and approach”.

    and

    “We are far from eliminating racism in Australia,” she said.

    “Australia has a colonial past and a bloody history that is tainted with dispossession and violence.

    “Systemic racism manifests in workplaces, schools, sport, media, public places and in parliaments.

    “Unless we seriously work towards eliminating racism and its harmful impacts on people, a celebration of cultural diversity on this day seems rather hollow.”

    Senator Faruqui is a Green who has never faced an election. She was chosen to replace Lee Rhiannon when Rhiannon resigned.

    She was born in Pakistan, where her chances of becoming an influential lawmker are vanishingly small. Women in Muslim Pakistan routinely undergo genital mutilation and are forcibly married off to cousins – but no, their feelings are rarely hurt by ‘racism.’

    I have no words.

    “The 21st of March is not celebrated as Harmony Day anywhere except in Australia,” Senator Faruqi said in the letter.

    “It represents a superficial, self-congratulatory celebration of diversity which completely ignores the entire point of the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination – the urgent, pressing need to recognise racism and eliminate it in all its forms.

    Comment from the best Monetary economist in the world.

    No, 7% NGDP growth is not OK

    Suppose we’d recently experienced 15 years of roughly 10% NGDP growth (as in the late 1960s and the 1970s.) Now NGDP growth slows to 7%. It would be reasonable to call the slowdown a successful contractionary monetary policy.

    Twelve month NGDP growth was 12.2% in the fourth quarter of 2021, and slowed to 7.4% in the fourth quarter of 2022. So does that also represent a successful application of a contractionary monetary policy? No. Context is everything.

    Over the last 30 years, the Fed has successfully kept the average inflation rate fairly close to 2%, until recently. During 2021, it was appropriate that NGDP rebound sharply from the extremely depressed conditions of 2020 as the economy re-opened. But once we reached the previous NGDP trend line, it was essential that NGDP not overshoot the target. Instead, NGDP has soared far above the previous trend line, and this is what has caused the recent high inflation.

    It’s important not just to look at growth rates, but also consider levels. While policy may seem to be improving as NGDP growth slows, it’s actually getting worse as the level of NGDP moves further and further above the appropriate target path. This overheating has pushed the natural interest rate sharply higher, and largely explains why the Fed has failed to successfully tighten monetary policy despite substantial increases in its target rate.

    I fight a hopeless and never-ending battle to convince people to stop thinking about policy in terms of “concrete steps”. The most important Fed decision in recent years has been its abandonment of average inflation targeting, and its signaling that it will tolerate inflation and NGDP growth that is far above trend. That tolerance has sharply raised the natural rate of interest. While the Fed also raised its policy rate, it increased more slowly than the natural rate. The net effect of the (expansionary) signaling and the (contractionary) rise in the policy rate, has been to loosen monetary policy, which has caused extremely rapid NGDP growth.

    No, 7% NGDP growth is not OK. It should have been closer to 4% during 2022. There would have been a technical recession, but unemployment would not have rising very sharply with 4% NGDP growth. It would have been more like one of those pseudo recessions that you often see in countries like Japan and the UK.

    One other thing, adding temporary liquidity to the system by the Fed acting as lender of last resort is not a form of QE. The operation is temporary in order to quell concerns about regional banks (particularly) not being able to sudden withdrawal demand. In the case of SVB and Signature bank, the Fed will take bank the funds as soon as things are figured out.

    There was an aircraft being designed and built in Gippsland. They had some goon from CASA assigned to the project to ride them like a broken bicycle each and every day.

    I knew the Gippsland guys. It got to where certification was held up due to CASA concerns about the screws holding the headlining in the cabin.
    Another outfit at Cowra got certification but you also need a Production Certificate. When they tried to move a bench in the factory, CASA had kittens.
    The civil aviation regulator in Australia has consistently done its best to prevent any aviation industry in Australia. They tried to put the Jabiru guys at Bundaberg out of business over their engines in 2014. Claimed there was a “high and increasing failure rate” but had put two years worth of stats in one year and included engine failures due to too much air in the tanks (no fuel). The dopey DAS resigned before the SHTF after he lied to a Senate committee instead of taking the question on notice.
    My airline pilot mate had one of his senior colleagues join CASA recently. First thing he was told was there were only two things to worry about – his pay and his leave. Aviation safety doesn’t even feature, as long as CASA can find someone else to blame. Got some nice little corruption stories too but can’t publish.

    Ron DeSantis about SVB…

    “This bank, they’re so concerned with DEI (diversity, equity and inclusion) and politics and all kinds of stuff

    In Jordan Peterson’s now gloriously infamous interview with…some woman far less remarkable than the interview itself, she proposes a hastily contrived scenario of a business set up not on patriarchal principles but those instead that the professor had identified as feminine ones.

    She was speaking in a hurry and responding to points Peterson had made in the interview (in an attempt to discredit him) rather that pushing an idea she had previously considered.

    Peterson had simply said “sure you can try it”, but that none of the ‘feminine’ traits to be so relied upon predicted success.

    Fast forward to now.

    We have seen a bank set up and predicated on a richer stew of social justice than even what’s-her-name had come up with and released it to fare on its own merits in the real world – and what a magnificent failure it has been!

    What’s-her-name could make the claim that a feminist (or diverse) company ought not be deemed a failure because it was not contesting against similar diverse companies (apples and oranges vs oranges and oranges) but the fact of the matter is that diverse companies against ‘patriarchal’ ones flounder and what’s-her-name’s scenario would only ever reveal which diverse form failed better.

    Somehow, and against all expectation, banks acting like banks to be banks are better are more successful than banks acting as UCLA Berkeley diversity forums to be banks.

    I will wait while everyone digests that.

    Farmers and miners would not be investing in green businesses and political parties, they would actually be making money for their investors and depositors so not even comparable.

    It is beginning look like the SVB was run by spoiled children of the rich and arrogant who never imagined that they need to obey the laws of economic or even just financial oversight laws.

    The same dynamic was in action in 1980 wth American hostages in Iran. Jimmy Carter was completely ineffective yet the situation was resolved as soon as Reagan won the election, even before he was sworn in. The enemy knew then who was serious and who wasn’t just as Putin and Xi have assessed the present situation.

The GOP certainly didn’t let out a single peep at obvious steals like the Philly and Arizona Senate elections. They couldn’t, since that would legitimize everything Trump has been saying. So it’ll be another steal. It’s obvious.

    And with the Dems in control the war is likely to go on, since possibilities for graft are enormous.

    Perth mum thanks good Samaritan after son mugged at Karrinyup Shopping Centre by ‘eshays’
    Shannon Hampton
    March 13, 2023 3:55PM

    A Perth mother is warning teenagers to remain vigilant after a gang of “eshays” mugged her son and his friend for their expensive Nike shoes and has thanked the good Samaritan who came to their aid.

    The mother, who does not want to be named to protect her 14-year-old son’s identity, said she and her husband had arrived at Karrinyup Shopping Centre to pick up her son when the terrifying ordeal unfolded about 5pm on Saturday.

    She said after calling her son when he took a long time to arrive at an agreed meeting point, he called back to tell her that he “just got mugged for our shoes”.

    A gang of older youths dressed in the style of “eshays” had chased the two 14-year-old boys into the car park during the robbery before holding her son’s friend up against the car, threatening to bash or stab him unless he handed over his shoes, the mother said.

    Her own son was also threatened with violence.

    “The kids took off their shoes and ran,” she said. The boys were wearing Nike 90 and Nike SB Dunk shoes, which retail between $160 and $180.

    The mother said an “incredible good Samaritan” then came to the boys’ aid. “No one knows where he came from, but he must’ve been watching,” she said.

    Perth coppers broke the skinhead gangs by some fairly robust methods, why do they tolerate these P O S?

    Farmers and miners would not be investing in green businesses and political parties, they would actually be making money for their investors and depositors so not even comparable.

    I think you have missed the point about what was going on with SVB’s balance sheet, and the cash demands of their depositors.
    If an Agri-Bank had similar balance sheet flaws – and let’s not assume no bank in Flyover country could have – with a rural client base which could have fluctuating cash demands due to the vagaries of agricultural activity then, yes, it could absolutely happen.

    Bloody hell.

    Scanning through the news sites, and stumbled across a piece about Wally Lewis and his new missus – a lady person named Lynda Adams from Townsville. Tiny little chick.

    Running my peepers across a pic of them, and followed by making sure she was who I thought she was, I realised that I dated Lynda for four months or so in the early 90s when I was living in the Ville. We met through a bloke working for a radio station I knew.

    We broke up over who did and who didn’t want to go to a Jimeoin stand up comedy show. She did, I didn’t. Downhill for a fortnight after that, and then a reasonably friendly double move-on. Still saw her from time to time before I left town. Really nice girl.

    Obviously though, she’d been pining for me for 30 years. Happy to hand the crown over to The King.

    It’ll stop when the “eshays” attack & steal the sandshoes from a kid of the wrong ethnicity, perhaps one a couple of degrees removed from a “bad guy” Mr. Big type.

    Not all of what looks like “white” to them are cuckolded anglos, they’ll do over a Greek kid, or a Lebanese Muslim kid.

    Over the subsequent week or so lots of brawny men in their mid-20s will turn up in town, in ones & twos – of the same ethnicity as the kid in hospital.

    Then suddenly one night they’ll cut loose, belting piss & pickhandles out of anybody who even looks like they’re connected to these “eshays” – not caring how much damage they do (rather than an extreme limit, broken bones will be a starting point)
    They’ll keep this up for a couple of weeks – though after about the fourth night they’ll have trouble finding targets.

    At the beginning of the special operation, the Ukrainians had 700,000 men under arms. Now they have about 150K. So far, 304,000 Ukrainian soldiers have been killed and many more wounded and missing. About 20,000 civilians were killed. Russian losses are just over 20 K.

    By the way, 2,500 western mercenaries/soldiers and about 3,000 Poles got killed so far.

    I walked down to the antique art museum yesterday afternoon, wanted to look at a couple of things including their Bosch triptych and the first thing the staff member said was that it was on holiday in Milan.
    However the second floor that was closed last time I was here was open.
    Like most fine arts museums in this part of the world the collection relies heavily on works confiscated from the Catholic church during various persecutions, in Portugal’s case in 1835 then 1910 when a law re separation of church and state was passed.
    If the art wasn’t directly from a confiscation it came as bequests from private collections where confiscated art had passed into private hands.
    They have an interesting collection of antique furniture and ceramics as well.

    The decline and fall of the skinheads gangs in Perth was notable – they bashed one of the junior recruits from HMAS Leuwin so severely that he finished up in a wheelchair. Emboldened by their triumph, they announced that the streets of the town belonged to them, and after the following Friday, anyone with a naval haircut was history.

    Unfortunately, come the following Friday, two R.A.N. ships had docked in Fremantle, together with a R.N. Guided missile cruiser…the streets of Perth ran red with skinhead blood, while Perth coppers sat at Central, and played cards….

    After the sailors left, anyone in skinhead regalia copped another hiding from the coppers – very, very soon after, there wasn’t a skinhead to be seen on the streets of Perth…

    If you can get to it with a sling and pipe, can’t you lift the pipe or sling with the forklift?

    Needs to be carried about 6m, will get team Bangla on it tomorrow! Some idiot put a fire pipe above ground when drawings showed it being underground.

    Siena is JC.
    I visited HO in Siena once when they were letting members of the public have a peek at a restored old master destined for the directors office. Dude told me they had 30 000 objects of fine art in their possession.
    San Paulo has 35 000 but they have a selection on display in a couple of galleries.
    No-one ever starts screaming they and all their families down to babes in arms should murdered in cold blood for being rich and successful for many generations.

    It moved plenty during the Ukraine offensive. Not so much during the current Russian one.

    The fat fascist fool calls for a Great War Against Wussian Imperialism, but has no enthusiasm for actually fighting in it.

    Tickler earlier.

    The entire family should be put up against a wall and shot.

    All of them are evil. They should have been obliterated years ago. Kids and all. F-15 strikes on all their property.

    That’s the way.
    Airstrikes.
    Far more accurate than a silly old meteorite.
    But an F-15?
    Surely the Me-109 or Stuka would be your weapon of choice.

    Do not suggest anti-Semitism.

    Most Nazis will say that.

    All of their estates should be wiped out.

    Why not just sieze them?
    Like you lot did the last time.

    With all the dramas going on in the world at the moment…lets talk about the no knickers girl.

    It is f-in stupid watching people respond to MSM on this subject….and yet it continues, Cassie being guilty.

    Plenty of people here cover issues raised in the MSM.
    Why single Cassie out?
    Do you imagine she is connected with Rothwells Merchant Bank?

    I would support action against banks as a whole, if you’re talking regulation and curbing excess speculation. But why pick on a Jewish banker in particular?

    It always comes back to the Protocols.

    It wasn’t the Rothschild’s that broke the SVB, it was woke, ESG and DVI.
    Glance at the profile of their risk manager.
    ‘Woman of colour, immigrant, non-binary, determined to break the chains of traditional investment rules by pursuing diversity……… blah blah’.
    And;
    Their Chief Admin officer had been CFO of Lehman Bros.
    But they were not entirely stupid, they knew that having a shed full of Hollywood and woke investors would have the Bidens (read Obama) rushing to use taxpayers money to bail the treasonous clowns.

    More than that. They had to give the Asian constituency a go at last.
    Blanchett probably quietly spitting chips about that. Hoist on her own petard.
