Breaking news from Baltimore: a shadowy network of pederasts has been discovered which had 600 victims over 60 years, powered by a culture of secrecy and perversion.

Drag Queen Story Hour, you say? Surely such widespread and systematic evil can only mean the Left is behind it?

The teenager who wore the seatbelt under her shoulder may have come off better in an accident than if she wore it around her neck. I often have to drive one handed for a moment while I use the other hand to pull down the seatbelt, which is also not optimal for safety.

I wonder if they have crash-tested seat belts on smaller bodies using under and over shoulder to see if there is a difference in injury or survival types. I guess the propulsion forward would be more if the shoulder wasn’t constrained.

It’s a technique they learned from the DemonRats.

Yes. Destroy the proper rule of law and this is what you end up with. Escalating tit for tat.

Given that they started it, I actually can’t wait to see a bit of legal biff being given back.
After that, a severe lesson I hope, the forces of good will stop all such things happening again.

According to Kerry Schott’s review the ARTC Board lacks the requisite skills to successfully manage the inland rail project.

They’ve been very careful to get the gender balance just right though.

Um, that’s why it’s incompetent:

a) it’s the government.

b) the woke clowns on the board know nothing about laying and managing rail track.

c) the clowns on the board weren’t required to be competent, just tick ideological boxes.

Prediction: that half-arsed relaying of various inland rail lines — which is essentially what it is — will never be completed.

One of the architects of the Uluru statement Noel Pearson has described Opposition Leader Peter Dutton as the “undertaker” trying to kill and bury Uluru.

He spoke of the great “Judas betrayal” in the lead-up to Easter.

Dutton should have a big grin on his face.

No-one outside the Canberra bubble — especially in the outer suburbs of Melbourne and Sydney — have even heard of Noel Pearson.

I don’t know how representative of actual popular opinion the cartoonists Tom posts are. They might just be the big publications and perhaps smaller (boutique, surely) ones are more circumspect. Or maybe the Brits are stuck with most of their cartoonists being like Rowe – simplistic and ill-informed despite the publication that pays them.

If you think that Rowe is grotesque, check out Steve Bell, long time cartoonist for the Grauniad. In the 1980s, when I was in London, his Thatcher Derangement Syndrome made the Trump DS of the modern cartoonists look reasonable.

The left never charge their own unless they cannot get away with it any longer without imploding.

Yesterday I went with some other ladies who lunch to one of those big charity lunches that are the lifeblood of swank hotels to celebrate the launch of Margaret Cunneen’s book ‘The Boxing Butterfly’, about her life as a Public Prosecutor and later defense barrister. In her speech she detailed how she was subject to ICAC investigation purely as a humiliation and how she took it to the Supreme Court and won.

You have to be prepared to fight them as she did. A very interesting life and a good woman there.

What did Bell do when Thatcher won in 1982 and 1987 and won the Falklands War, Cold War and 1991 Gulf War? What did he do when the Berlin Wall came down?

This sort of self induced psychosis is the best argument against being perpetually angry, even if you think you’re justified.

Hi calli, I hope your family member is okay. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Last night the Passover began and it will end next Thursday night, it’s a story of the liberation and freedom of the Jewish people. As we all know, the Seder meal of remembrance is what Jesus, his family and his friends were celebrating at the “Last Supper”. However, the Passover is also a story of faith and belief, and whilst I’m usually loathe to compare politics and religion, perhaps it’s time the Liberal Party of Australia had it’s own Passover, where the party flees from it’s current situation where it is daily being oppressed by a leftist MSM, Labor, the Greens and all the rest of the leftist rabble permeating through our national debate. It’s just a thought, because over the last few days all I’ve been reading is that the Liberal Party is finished, is unelectable (and that was real chutzpah from someone who’s own wife was unelectable and lost a safe seat), the Liberal Party must stop being “far-right” and “hard-right” (now that makes me laugh out loud) , and the Liberal Party should return to the centre, but the thing is, I’m still yet to find out what the centre is, because these same harbingers of doom and melodrama never quite say what the centre is. I suspect the centre they talk about is a Liberal Party indistinguishable from the Labor Party on almost all issues, devoid of any quaint Menzian principles such as free speech, religious freedom, fiscal responsibility and so on. We tried that in 2015, and didn’t that work out monumentally well in July 2016? LOL, Turdbull only just clung to power. In hindsight I believe it would have better, much better, if Shorten had won. And then of course, came the miracle election in May 2019, we naively thought we were getting a genuine Liberal in May 2019, instead all we got was a salesmen who based his government, like he does his religion, on shallow focus groups so that he could be “liked”, except craving and cultivating “being liked” never works. It’s not surprising that he attends a church where they waive their arms about, his whole tenure as PM was him waiving his arms about. Perhaps I’m too harsh, but I don’t think so.

I’m amused that those who are now publicly slagging off at the Liberal Party are almost always of the left, or have themselves, supposed progressive Liberals, been dumped by electorates because they were out-flanked by the left, such as those who lost to Teals last May. I’m talking about those two pontificating failures, Jason Falinsky and Dave Sharma, both of whom like to appear on Sky and dispense advice, despite having lost their seats. Last week Chris Kenny responded to a nasty spray by Jason Falinsky by spraying back. Kenny cruelly but accurately said that Falinsky was the failure and as for Sharma, as Kenny amusingly said, he not only lost one election, but two. Ouch!

No doubt these aforementioned unlamented “Liberals” such as Sharma, Falinsky, Wilson and Zimmerman, if they were still in parliament, would be pushing for the Liberals to accept Labor’s model of the “Voice”. Sadly, there are still renegades remaining in the party who will probably cross the floor, Archer, Bragg and Bummingham, if they do they should be deselected. But herein lies the rub, I expected more from Dutton. His rejection yesterday wasn’t what it should have been, a wholesale repudiation and refusal to implement a race based model in the constitution. He should have stood up yesterday and said that we are ALL equal under the law and that no race, and no ethnic group should be accorded special privileges in the constitution, because by doing so we are voting for Apartheid Australian style. But no, instead the Liberals are doing again what they excel at, and that is dithering, in other words doing what they’ve done with “climate” over the last decade and a half, placing a bet each way, too timid and too cowered to stand by and say NO to ANY Voice. The Liberals have spent almost two decades hopscotching around on almost ALL issues, too shit scared to call out basic truths for fear of annoying people who will never vote for them in a heartbeat, and all this hopscotching has done is to further damage the party, further alienate voters like most of us here, and further increase their political misfortune, which is music to the left. In other words, they dance to the music of the left, and they show no sign of changing this dance. This is what their refusal to call out the climate con has done, it led to PM Happy Clappy signing us up to net zero emissions, it led to the election of the most left-wing government in our history, it led to a dumping of basic Menzian principles such as free speech and religious freedoms. The Liberal Party is struggling because it hates itself, and yesterday, despite the timid NO, it’s still caught in the left’s funnel web trap.

Leaders such as Moses, Churchill, Menzies, were human, very human, but they knew how and when to stand up for principles. The Midrash describes how Moses lost his temper many times, this I understand, dealing with argumentative and belligerent Jews can be difficult. But great leaders through history knew how to stand up for what is right, they knew how to inspire followers and people would follow them because, in modern parlance, they had convictions.

It is important to remember that not all Hebrews left Egypt, in fact many stayed because they were too scared to leave, they were too timid to seize the moment and flee from slavery. These Hebrews have been lost to antiquity. Dutton could have stood up yesterday and been a Moses type figure, instead he pursued a middle supposedly “safe” path. Leaving Egypt was no middle path. Just like the Liberal Party, if the party continues along this trajectory of refusing to make hard decisions, of refusing to stand up for ordinary Australians, of dancing to the left’s music, then the party will also be lost to antiquity. And that will be a tragedy. Peter Dutton shouldn’t worry about those “progressive Liberals” such as the Archers, the Bumminghans, the Sharmas, the Braggs, they’ll be left in Egypt, and that’s where they belong.

Safe and effective, not.

TrialSite recently covered a large group legal action against AstraZeneca due to injuries associated with its COVID-19 vaccine, originally developed at the University of Oxford. The mainstream media and now, medical journals include coverage of mounting legal actions associated with the COVID-19 vaccines. The British Medical Journal (BMJ) most recently highlights the AstraZeneca CoVID-19 vaccine lawsuit, involving 75 claimants—some with surviving relatives despite “catastrophic injuries following blood clots,” while others lost loved ones permanently.

Briefly, The BMJ reports that based on a freedom of information request, NHS Business Services, which operates the vaccine damage scheme, revealed that by March 6, 2023, the scheme had received 4017 claims relating to a COVID-19 vaccine. Of those which had been dealt with, 622 concerned the AstraZeneca vaccine, 348 the Pfizer, and 43 the Moderna vaccine. Of the 4017 claims, 334 were for death.

The prestigious English-based medical journal reminds the reader that such COVID-19 vaccine injuries are “rare.” They stated, “Many millions have had the vaccine without suffering complications, but in 2021, the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency confirmed a possible link between the vaccine, known as Vaxzevria, and a rare condition involving blood clots along with abnormally low platelet levels. Those taking legal action have been diagnosed with vaccine-induced thrombotic thrombocytopenia.”

Self-described former “brain dead liberal”, Huffington Post contributor & playwright/screenwriter David Mamet on the persecution of Donald Trump:

“…as Passover is here, we might ask: “why is this night different from all other nights?” Answer: the indictment of President Trump demolishes the line between prosecutorial sharp-practices and naked persecution. The fig leaf of judicial probity is, granted, often transparent. But its glib removal yesterday announces an advance past that last firewall against thuggery: shame.”

Wearing the belt that way would make it similar in effectiveness to the old lap belts. These are now apparently not considered adequate, except in aircraft operating at much higher speeds than cars.

The case for lap/sash belts in the front seat seems stronger (steering wheel, dashboard and other hard objects close to the wearer) than in the back seat, with just the padded back of the front seats being there. Though the trend to mounting electronic devices on the back of the front seats might be an issue.

I was there from 1984 to 1986, so I missed those parts of his “career”. But he was bad enough then.

Re MRI’s which put you into a tunnel with a noise like a concrete mixer going on around you. If you are only getting your legs or lower half done in them then they are bearable, as you can go in feet first and keep your head out in the open.

What is horrible is head or upper body scans where you go in head first and if you are lucky your feet stick out (useful when in the UK I had a head MRI and the audio inside wasn’t working (thank you NHS) so they couldn’t talk to me; raise your foot if you need us, they said.

Lizzie,

Head & Neck MRI’s every 3 months during 34 Rounds Cancer Immunotherapy Trial over 2 years of Covid, always went for 0930pm MRI’s – no one around just straight in, Head Clamped down by Cage – as unable to close right eye when laying down (Weight in Lid only works when standing up) – use silk eyeshades – as right ear after 13 1/2 Hour Parotidectomy 2018 was reconstructed, unable to take earplug, only earplug left ear – Nurse stuffs some cotton against right ear, where head up against cage – 20 mins of not stop clanging, then out for intravenous fluid through canula, then back in for another 10 mins

Getting so used to the noise, tending to doze off now – for 9 1/2 hour Craniotomy Feb 2022 Op, cutting rotting bone out of head and replacing with titanium mesh and skin from left thigh (rightthigh skin used in 2918 Op to reconstruct face) plus muscle cut from below shoulder blade used in reconstrcution over titanium mesh on head – had 1 PET and 2 CAT scan for that Op – Easy, Peasy compared to MRI’s

Now down to MRI every 6 months & Cancer Immunotharapy Trial was successful for me & others, now on PBS since Oct 22

Skin on left thigh has healed over – more of a scraping off of skin for use on head, vs cutting skin on right thigh for face reconstruction

Bouncing along healthy as always & enjoying Wife, Kids & Grandkids – MEL Tribe up for Easter, so 12 in House over Easter – chaos will ensue – Son dropped in yesterady to disuss plans for our trip to Milan & Switzerland for 2 weeks end of May to mid June – booked Venice with Grand Daughter for 1 trip driving back by Padua, Verona up right side Lake Garda taking Granddaughter back to Boarding School in Switzerland, then Turin, & Casa di Langa

Ugandan President: Africa Must ‘Save the World’ From LGBTQ+++™ ‘Degeneration’

As I have previously documented elsewhere, the West has a fetish for exporting its LGBTQ+++™ Social Justice™ ideology all throughout the world — whether its inhabitants want it or not.

This is a form of neo-colonialism, and it’s as repugnant as but more pernicious than any preceding form of colonialism. Rather than simply stealing resources, the goal is to warp the local culture beyond recognition.

A coalition of African nations, including Kenya and Uganda, are among the most ardent holdouts.

In response, the corporate media has pioneered an entirely new sub-genre of the craft: the ritual LGBTQ+++™ shaming of African leaders over their stance on homosexuality and transgenderism in each and every interview.

Here’s a challenge: find a CNN interview with an African leader from the past ten years that doesn’t include pointed questions about LGBTQ+++™ rights and accusations of discrimination. You won’t be able to do it. It’s usually the lead question.

“Africa should provide the lead to save the world from this degeneration and decadence, which is really very dangerous for humanity. If people of opposite sex [sic] stop appreciating one another then how will the human race be propagated?” the president asked rhetorically.

Meanwhile

PM to take week-long Easter break

Anthony Albanese will have a week-long Easter break.

“I’m actually going on leave on Saturday,” the Prime Minister said at the end of a press conference in Sydney.

“I have not had any leave this year so I will be on leave for one week. Richard Marles and Penny Wong will be acting during that period, and I look forward to having some time off and … also not holding press conferences and having a bit of a rest.

Thanks for posting that Crowe interview, Mother Lode.

His thoughts on Master and Commander and “toxic masculinity” were very interesting and had me reflecting on the types of roles Crowe has excelled in. His performance in LA Confidential was the first I’d ever seen and he was very impressive.

Wolfman could probably do a post on his movies at some stage.

I also liked the interviewer’s style – ask the right type of questions and the subject reveals all sorts of things about themselves that you aren’t aware of. Keeping in mind he’s a very good actor…it’s hard to separate the real person from the role he’s adopted for the interview. There were a couple of times when the man appeared, particularly in his reminiscence of Kylie and Craig and the fight scene.

ABCcess continues its never ending series “why are women more shit than men”..

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2023-04-06/donna-ward-on-economic-disadvantages-of-being-single/102163622

Perhaps a bachelor tax to soothe the old hags woes would help?

At 68 and single, Donna Ward attracts a lot of assumptions.

People around her tend to assume, for example, that she’s separated or divorced (she’s not), has grown children (she doesn’t) and that a single income easily covers the cost of single living (it doesn’t).

Ms Ward feels that the social and financial implications of being an older single person are not seen — and they’re not discussed.

There’s “a distinct prejudice” against single, older women, she argues.

She calls it the “singlehood penalty”.

Managing life on a single income is increasingly difficult, Ms Ward says.

“We’re living in an economy now that depends on two incomes to maintain a roof over your head, food on your table, clothes on your back,” she tells ABC RN’s Life Matters.

Men experience the highest rates of homelessness – so lets all cheer for closing the gap?
“Older single women are the fastest growing group experiencing homelessness in Australia,” she says.

….
Epty egg carton is empty..

Dr Hamilton’s research also revealed anxiety among older single women about what would happen when their own health and aged care needs arose.

“Because they didn’t have a spouse or children of their own, they expressed a very strong fear about growing older and not knowing who’d be there to support them in the future,” she says.

“Many were very worried that they would be forced to move into a residential aged care setting before they were ready.”
….
I sense a disturbance in the force, like a billion incels all sneered at once before REEEEEEEIIIING at once….
“Society hasn’t noticed that there’s this rapidly increasing number of women who are choosing not to marry,” Ms Ward says.

Moist empty egg cartons.
Ms Ward says “the air was wet with emotion” at the meeting,

A preacher went to his church office on Monday morning and discovered a dead mule in the church yard. He called the police. Since there did not appear to be any foul play, the police referred the preacher to the health department. They said since there was no health threat that he should call the sanitation department. The sanitation manager said he could not pick up the mule without authorisation from the mayor. Now the preacher knew the mayor and was not too eager to call him. The mayor had a bad temper and was generally hard to deal with, but the preacher called him anyway. The mayor did not disappoint. He immediately began to rant and rave at the pastor and finally said “Why did you call me anyway? Isn’t it your job to bury the dead?” The preacher paused for a brief prayer and asked the Lord to direct his response. He was led to say “Yes, Mayor, it is my job to bury the dead, but I always like to notify the next of kin first.

The Beany watching a clip with Matt Walsh asking a tranny why they think they are a woman.

Gratifying to me since it is much what I have wondered: how can a tranny claim to feel like a woman when they can’t claim to any experience of being the opposite sex – only their impression of what a woman is.

And how do I know I am a guy? Well, I grew up hanging out with guys, found that we had the same predispositions, wanting to clamber over stuff, didn’t mind dirt, liked pulling things apart to see how they worked, looked up to my Dad, couldn’t wait to drive like him, and so on. Some of these things are just manifestations of more deeply-rooted drives such that the root functions of males between different societies seems more similar than to the women in the same society: Procuring food, protection of home, fighting, venturing father afield etc, rather than rearing kids, maintaining the home etc.

It is a popular opinion that men and women are essentially the same just with different…erm…parts. But how would that have been evolutionarily beneficial? Supposing instinctively men were equally predisposed to cosset children as women, and women as predisposed as men to hunt? That would be pretty weird for societies everywhere to evolve such that men on the hunt are yearning to get back to the cave and dandle the little ones on their knees, and for women to be tending a skinned knee while yearning to be out scaring mammoths off cliffs with spears and torches.

Shit! Don’t tell any feminists I said that! Saying that men and women might not want the same things and therefore not being equally represented in all fields!

Peter Dutton’s statement on Albanese’s Vanity Voice

Dear Michael,

Yesterday the Liberal Party determined its position on the Voice.

We will oppose the Prime Minister’s model because it will enshrine in the Constitution a Canberra-based bureaucracy.

It is a risky and divisive proposal that will not deliver practical outcomes.

Improving outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians requires a sensible and practical approach.

That’s why we reaffirm our commitment to local and regional advisory bodies to provide grassroots advice.

We support the recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders as Australia’s First People in our Constitution. But we would do so in a responsible way that doesn’t create Constitutional uncertainty.

This is a case of doing what’s right for our country.

A referendum to enshrine the Albanese Government’s Voice in the Constitution is a big decision with unknown consequences.

Our Constitution is our most important legal document. Every word can have a meaning – and can be open to interpretation.

Once it’s in the Constitution, it is permanent. It won’t be changed.

The Government or Parliament cannot rectify any unintended consequences.

The facts matter. The details matter.

That’s why we asked 15 questions in January – questions that still remain unanswered.

The way Mr Albanese’s Voice has been worded, and by enshrining it in the Constitution, could open a legal can of worms.

The Prime Minister can’t guarantee its powers won’t lead to intervention by an activist High Court.

And that it won’t significantly disrupt or delay effective decision making by governments.

Constitutional lawyer Greg Craven has been a strong supporter of the Voice in principle and was one of the experts behind the original proposal of an Indigenous Voice.

But he now says: “It will be very, very difficult for government to operate either because it will be constantly delayed and tied up in knots, or indeed because the courts end up intervening directly in decisions.”

For the Government it is not about the detail or the consequences. It’s about the vibe.

In all good conscience, we cannot support that approach.

The Prime Minister has sought to divide Australians. We are seeking to unite them.

Peter Dutton MP

– Well, he has courted the radical aboriginals, the gay community, the transsexuals, the misfits and sundry nutter groups, this was just another step.

If it was just Albosleazy and his party that was descending into this well of shit I would be cheering his climb down……but unfortunately he drags this country with him!

My point was over transfusions of the emergency sort – you are not going to get the luxury of a choice. 

And practically you can’t make that choice in routine situations on the basis of vax status because that information isn’t recorded.
Which makes Tickler’s story utter bullshit.
Realistically any demand for “pure blood” transfusions couldn’t and wouldn’t be satisfied.
He was lucky this was met with some eye-rolling instead of a surgeon saying “sign the form as it is or pack your bags”.
I know a couple of medicos who would cancel surgery if they saw a consent form amended for “unvaxxed blood only” and fair enough.
Something goes awry and they either get sued for letting him die or get sued for giving him an “unclean transfusion”.
Now the patient is never going to win the “unclean transfusion” action, but who needs the grief?

… if you’re worried, and if you have time, have some of your own ready to top you up. I don’t know how you’d go about it, but it would be worth investigating.

If you live in the city, easy peasy. Just ask your doc, or the doc doing the surgery, and they’ll write you out a form – it should be doable at any Pathology, Red Cross, or Hospital Outpatient Centre. I remember doing one at Wilcannia about 15 years ago. We just had to order in the special blood bags and did it on the spot. Took about 30 minutes + sit down and rest for a bit. No real difference between that and giving blood at the Red Cross bus.
Mind you, it’s been 8 years since I last practised and routines and protocols change.

‘Abrogation of leadership’: Albanese unleashes on Dutton over Voice rejection (Sky mainpage headline)

Anthony Albanese has declared Peter Dutton’s rejection of the Voice to Parliament proposal is an “abrogation of leadership” as the Liberal Party’s position faces major backlash from indigenous figures.

Going against the woke flow is about the most leadershippy leadership you can imagine. But Albo thinks anything not liked by the Left is an abrogation. Um no Mr Lying Liar, it isn’t.

The Prime Minister has sought to divide Australians. We are seeking to unite them.

Excellent words, Peter Dutton.

But first you must unite the Wets, white ants and cowards in the Liberal Party parliamentary caucus.

In the meantime, remember the Turbullian white ants — and the media that eggs them on — don’t speak for the people who want to vote for you.

You will be surprised what a little backbone does for both spirits and optics, not to mention opinion polls.

Have now had the time to watch this in full and look at some of the references.

Very interesting, did Icelandic Vikings make firearms?

They certainly had iron working capability. The recently discovered story of “Freddy Four Fingers” and a previously untranslatable term for some weapon like a spear makes for a reasonably compelling argument.

And practically you can’t make that choice in routine situations on the basis of vax status because that information isn’t recorded.

My vax status was recorded during the inpatient interview, d*ckhead, and reiterated when the discussion of needing a possible blood transfusion was discussed. A question they ask all patients prior to the knife.

The only one full of sh*t here is you.

I know a couple of medicos who would cancel surgery if they saw a consent form amended for “unvaxxed blood only” and fair enough.

Fair enough in your screwed up world.

Now I reckon you are bullshitting and just made that up. I had no such dramas and pardon the pun, bloody happy I made my case. As the Doc said the chances of me needing it were minimal. I will be asking questions about it during next visit. The thought of having a muck infected blood transfusion gives me the creeps.

Calli does have a point when it comes to emergencies though and an individual might not have a choice in the matter. With that said, .GOV should be taking steps to ensure unvaxxed supplies exists knowing damn well all the dangers of the muck have been exposed and continue to do so….oh wait, the same .GOV and affiliates who pushed that experimental crap on the populace. Yeah, that could be a while. Culpability would have to be admitted.

It’ll probably be future lawfare that kickstarts the unvaxxed blood push.

Brass in pocket.

Benin Bronzes found to be made of German brass (Phys.org, 5 Apr)

“The renowned Benin Bronzes are composed of metal sourced from Germany, according to a study published April 5, 2023

It is commonly thought that the metal in these sculptures was sourced from small brass rings called “manillas” which were used as currency in European trade in West Africa, but this has been difficult to confirm.

In this study, researchers performed chemical analysis on 67 manillas recovered from five Atlantic shipwrecks and three land sites in Europe and Africa dating between the 16th and 19th centuries, specifically identifying lead isotope signatures and trace element compositions of the metal. They found a strong similarity between the metal composition of the Benin Bronzes and that of the manillas used in Portuguese trade prior to the 18th century, suggesting these manillas were a major source of metal for the sculptures.

Furthermore, the composition of those manillas is similar to ores from the German Rhineland, suggesting that Germany was the principle source of metal for production of pre-18th century manillas and, ultimately, the Benin Bronzes.”

I saw some Benin bronzes in the British Museum, they were excellent. But I always thought the metal was mined locally. Fun that they’re actually German.

Tom, I also wonder about the long-term influence of hormones like the Pill on women. Have there ever been any studies on what those effects might be, even on subsequent pregnancies and crossing the placenta to foetus?

Of course, if such a study proved a link, imaging the haste to suppress it.

So many angry young women in my youth, and it seems to have escalated to subsequent generations. Where is all this anger coming from? It seems so bizarre, so gratuitous and self-serving, but you ask what they are angry about and they can’t seem to articulate it. Same with what they fear.

Lithium batteries, which are supposed to Save da Planet, burn down a recycling centre:

“The ACT Fire & Rescue report specifically points the finger at lithium batteries,” he said.

“Lithium is found in many household batteries such as non-rechargeable AA and AAA batteries, and also in rechargeable batteries in devices like laptops, mobile phones, and cameras.”

and

The government said since the recycling fire, it has had to transport around 229 tonnes per day of ACT waste into Western Sydney and Victoria, costing taxpayers $1.4 million.

Mr Steel said in a statement that the government had been liaising with the ACT Insurance Authority to recover most of the additional costs.

The ACT government had previously announced it would build a new recycling facility adjacent to the existing one, but it could be years until the ground is broken on the new location.

Anthony Albanese has declared Peter Dutton’s rejection of the Voice to Parliament proposal is an “abrogation of leadership” as the Liberal Party’s position faces major backlash from indigenous figures.

The left think that that leadership means making the decisions and everyone affected must just lump it. Equal to a tyrant, really. Makes sense since they think far and away the bulk of the population are stupid window-lickers who cannot be trusted to be left to their own lights.

Perhaps they might reflect on who really is counted as a leader. A leader may have a task above the people that follow, but they must be mindful of those that follow and give them a reason to trust them. To take an extreme example – George Patton. What made him a leader? That he won a lot? I don’t think so. He achieved a lot by doing what he understood his job to be (killing those Nazi bastards, as he might have put it) but he was able to do so in cooperation with loyal troops who trusted him – even down to trusting that if they were to risk their lives or die, it will have benefited to what they believed in.

A good football captain is not at war with their team. They do not disparage them. Instead they inspire them to give their all and trust that they are not going to get knocked down or lose their teeth for no good reason, or because the captain thinks it will make himself look good in the stands.

A good leader in business does not make the employees feel like drones. You can see how far businesses which have managerial rather than entrepreneurial leadership will go to mimic leadership by staging events to make themselves popular to the workers. These attempts always seem false and desperate and are greeted by the workers as an opportunity to get a bit extra from people they don’t care about.

But back to politicians and government: Churchill and Stalin were on the winning side in WW2. One was a leader, the other was a dictator.

The Fourth Turning Tipping Point

By Jeff Thomas

A Fourth Turning is a period in history when all the negative developments over a four-generation period reach a crescendo – a time when the sociopaths are the rulers and are putting the squeeze on the populace.

In addition to an effort to institute totalitarian rule, symptoms include the breakdown of both morality and logic. Black is white; up is down. Confusion and chaos increase in both frequency and magnitude as the Fourth Turning advances.

Those of a libertarian mindset tend to be especially sensitive to and cognizant of these symptoms as they unfold. Since a classic Fourth Turning takes place over roughly twenty years, by the time the halfway mark is reached and the symptoms are peaking, it may appear that “It just keeps getting worse. Won’t people ever wake up and understand that this is crazy?”

Well, historically, the answer has always been “Yes.”

There’s always a turning point, even if it seems that it’s not only a long time coming but that there’s no level of oppression that won’t be tolerated by the masses.

The reason for this is that a Fourth Turning is made possible by complacency. Although there has been a deterioration in self-reliance and reasoning for three generations, a population does not become truly complacent until the latter stages. The deeper the complacency, the greater the oppression by leaders.

Interestingly, complacency is at its greatest in populations where there previously was the greatest prosperity. Therefore, in the present Fourth Turning, the countries that have been most dramatically impacted have been those that had previously been the most prosperous.

Not surprising, then, that the level of governmental controls and, indeed, the oppression of social wokeness is now most extreme in the US, UK, Canada, EU, etc., as, since the last Fourth Turning in the 1940s, they have been the world’s leaders in prosperity. In Second and Third World countries, the level of oppression – and the chaos and confusion that go with it – has been significantly less.

So, if we are to see a turning point, when will it be, and what will cause it?

Historically, there is generally both a political turning point and a social one. They’re not always concurrent, and that’s the case this time around.

In February of 2022, the US placed sanctions on Russia as a result of the Ukraine war. This was predictable. However, the US concurrently confiscated the private property of Russian citizens.

At the time, this didn’t get a lot of publicity in the West, but I believe that, in retrospect, it will be seen as the political turning point. The reason is that most of the countries in the world do not see themselves as world powers. They see themselves as countries that are continually impacted by world powers.

As such, they try to cooperate with the big boys and suffer as little as possible from what the big boys do.

For them, the announcement by the US was a direct threat: “Omigod, if they confiscated assets of the Russian people, they could do the same to us.”

This generated a quiet move away from US influence. Representatives of many countries started to travel to Moscow and Beijing to form new alliances, new trade agreements, and new loyalties to replace the ever-riskier relationship with the US.

Such changes don’t happen overnight, but in the last year, we’ve seen moves away from the petrodollar, the US reserve currency, and increased applications to join the BRICS. Recently, Malaysia became the first country to announce that its preparation to step away from the US is now complete, and they are formally distancing itself from the US.

This trend will expand over the coming year as more countries “come out” in their intention – a trend that will serve both to isolate the US and to increase the collective strength of the BRICS.

But what of that other concern – the social tipping point?

Again, complacency is the overriding stumbling block. In recent years, conservative thinkers have become more and more irate over socialistic notions and, particularly, wokeism. The overreach of Black Lives Matter, climate change, LGBTQ rights, presumed white privilege, and vaccine mandates have become increasingly dominant and seemingly unending.

But recently, there have been cracks in what seemed to be a developing permanence of wokeism. To wit:

Stanford Law School students drove out a conservative speaker, with angry insults, with students even calling for his daughters to be raped. The moderating Administrator added to the fire, denouncing the speaker as he left. But, in a surprise move, the otherwise liberal Dean suspended the Administrator and announced that all students would be required to attend training on “freedom of speech and the norms of the legal profession.”
Ana Kasparian of the left-wing “Young Turks” broke with her peers to state, in no uncertain terms, that “I’m a woman. Please don’t ever refer to me as a person with a uterus, a birthing person, or a person who menstruates.How do people not realize how degrading this is?”
Andrew Tate, a former kickboxer, has become extremely popular with young men and boys due to his presentation as ultra-masculine. His followers comment that Tate represents “everything about their nature that they’ve been forced to suppress.”
This is just a sampling of an increasing surprise reversal of the woke trend. And the key to it is that it has not emanated from the conservative side; it’s coming from liberals themselves.

Essentially, what we’re seeing is the effects of overload – those who previously supported wokeism… until it had taken over their lives. A breaking point is being reached in increasing numbers of liberals as wokeism is simply becoming intolerable.

So, what does this mean for the future? Is the globalist push nearing an end? No, unfortunately, even if it is to be defeated, it still has years to go. And the worst is yet to come. But the pushback is now quietly underway for the first time.

Is wokeism a dead duck? Hardly. But we may be witnessing the turning point – the point at which the narrative becomes intolerable to increasing numbers of people, and the tide turns.

To be sure, leaders never tire of the rhetoric that they create. But sooner or later, their minions – those who are pushing their propaganda – get a bellyful and move on.

This doesn’t happen overnight, but we may be reaching a turning point when it begins to lose its appeal to the very people who are spouting it.

Meanwhile, MontyPox Virus plays with his/its small willy and breathes heavily like Gollum still looking for that ring.

Given his lack of dick playing with his ring is about all he can look forward too.

Stormy Daniels Forced to Pay Trump’s Legal Fees

“Stormy Daniels, the ill-advised Jezebel, has been ordered by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to pay Donald Trump’s legal fees. Daniels would not have chosen a career in on-camera prostitution if she were smart enough to extort a former president. Someone is advising her behind the scenes. In this particular instance, Daniels attempted to sue Trump for defamation for a tweet he posted depicting her ex-husband alongside an unknown man who she said was threatening her to remain silent. The judge completely dismissed this case from 2018 as her “argument that the fee request is unreasonable and excessive is not well-founded.” She has been ordered to pay $121,000 in legal fees on top of hundreds of thousands that she already owes Trump.

The media is painting Stormy Daniels (born Stephanie A Gregory) as this innocent victim who fell prey to a powerful man who she said seduced her. Consider the source. I will not post some of her most recent tweets on this blog as they are too foul to share, but you can view them for yourself. She has used this scandal for personal gain through book sales, merchandise, and even sex toys. She has appeared on many major talk shows and the leftist media has applauded her for speaking out as if she were the victim.

Daniels met Trump in 2006 but decided to go public when he announced his presidential bid. She claims to have spent numerous nights with Donald on her own free will despite claiming to be disgusted by him. In her own words, they had sex once and no money was exchanged. Trump denies the affair entirely.

It is not illegal to pay for a nondisclosure agreement. The issue here is they are claiming Trump violated the law by using campaign funds to silence this vulgar woman. They claim that his lawyer threatened her. The people using her to pin charges on a former president are discrediting all women who have been victimized. Where is the #MeToo crowd? The American legal system is allowing a porn star to interfere in our elections blatantly and without question. This has to be one of the most absurd and obscene cases in American history.”
