Finally !

Fiona Brown the chief of staff has given interview for The Weekend Australian. It is a long read as very detailed.

Does not support Higgins version of events at all. Devastated when she saw what Higgins said about her on The Project. Career ruined. Could not defend herself as witness in the case. Said thrown under the bus by PM Morrison.

A must read. Perhaps somebody can post after midnight in new thread.

How many months do we have left according to the St Ruth predictonator?

18 to 48 months was the original call from the pantless, Indian poo-stained, Chinese tool-owning, Consty-in-the-glovebox-waving, Last Holdout-residing-yet-working-for-Big Sugar, held-up-at-gunpoint-by-the-Feds fabricator, independently-wealthy-enough-not-to-worry-about-not working-for-a-year-or-two Hartley boat owner-operator until he sold it, pub geetarist, recidivist failed political candidate and also failed revolutionary leader.

18 months expired on 1 April 2023. By now everyone who was jabbed, regardless of circumstance or personal situation was supposed to be dead. Those who resisted (who would ‘stand, fight and if necessary fall’) were – by now – supposed to have been cattle-carred into the gas chambers in the Toowoomba ‘facility’.

Because that’s what Faulty and Bosi said.

48 months from the original prediction is 1 October 2027. It’s also worth noting that 12 months after this Prediction For The Ages, St. Ruth tacked another 12 months onto the deadline for the Death CamPs being not only operational, but with their mission almost complete.

To be fair – to my knowledge he hasn’t mentioned children in slave tunnels and red shoes. Yet.

I still have an occasional snork at the ‘oh yeah but he was 70% right’ crew. No, he wasn’t 70% right. He wasn’t 7% right.

He seized upon events at the time to try and elevate himself to a position he thought he deserved, all at the expense of other people. He didn’t give a rat’s arse about others – it was all a ploy to try and get him a sinecure in the same Big Government he said he despised.

After my 4 covid shot it was just two weeks later that I went down with severe dose of covid. This was followed by nearly a year of myocarditis. A CT scan and a stress test when I had just about recovered fortunately showed no major heart damage but I now live on blood pressure and ch0lesterol drugs to reduce risk. The mycocaditis was particularly unpleasant. Even minor exercise tightened the chest and felt like a heart attack was imminent. Energy levels were at rock bottom and even though I am over it I am not back to where I was.

WTF! This post looks suspicious. I smell a dead rat. How the f*ck did you get up to number 4?

Firstly, sorry to disappoint, but most of the aliens currently streaming into America are likely Dems voters.

I was talking about the real aliens, the ones from Iceland.

Secondly, it is unsurprising that your phase of lusting after cute owls was simply a gateway drug to alien erections.

I don’t lust after them. I put them up to goad head prefect into giving up cigars. And real aliens don’t have erections. They’re all hermaphrodites.

Struth.
The bloke deserved respect for the Convoy of No Confidence thing (I may have stuffed up that name?). At least he tried to do something practical. I don’t blame him for becoming hyperbolic and bitter.

Memoryvault.
I’m not completely aware of how alternative his beliefs were prior to about 2015 when I drifted into SincCat, but I thought his ‘vote for the sitting member last strategy’ was at least a viable option at a time when many on here were still waxing lyrical about the second (or third, or fourth?) coming of Tony Abbott, and how the Liberals were still going to save us all.

It’s easy not to see the imperfections in our mirror when we keep the lights turned off.

The Left has burnt every bridge. Why don’t you just game out what happens if Trump – or any Republican – wins the next presidential election Monty?

The question answers itself.

Any cursory glance at US politics with even a scintilla of the other eye open makes it abundantly clear that the Dems know they’ve burnt every bridge and simply don’t care.

It’s been pretty clear since 2020 that they wouldn’t be letting the Presidency “fall”, but this now wilful disdain for any of the norms suggests to me that they are somehow confident that they will have control across the board. Which is odd, because whilst tipping the number on a statewide basis (i.e. Presidency, Senate) would seem to be a now-honed skill, I don’t really see how that can usefully translate to House seats on a broad scale. Almost “too small to fail”, as it were. Yet they seem supremely confident that none of the shenanigans will come back to haunt them.

I am not entirely kidding when I suggest that aliens and a lockdown of some type caused thereby are not off the bingo card. Well, maybe I am, but there is something up their collective sleeve.

Of course, having the braindead lamestream meeja go suddenly mute (again) while tossing cute l’il stuffed unicorns around left, right and centre, always sustains a handy illusion of irrelevance. 😕

In AFL news, self-proclaimed “thrower of the magnets”, the best coach in history (at least in his own mind) has now lost three on the trot for Footiscray. All, give or take, in identical fashion.

Apparently, the best idea when you have a supposedly dominant midfield is to add an extra bloke there, at the expense of a forward. Which works wonderfully well if games are adjudicated on number of forward entries, but less so if they are adjudicated on, well, scores.

Go you good thing, Bevo.

but I thought his ‘vote for the sitting member last strategy’ was at least a viable option 

It fell over when he was supporting Beetrooter’s father-in-law’s run for Parliament.
When it was put to him that, if Beetrooter’s f-i-l got elected, he would become the sitting member and therefore would have to be put last at the next election. It was at this point he claimed he had published several qualifiers to his mantra, one covering independents, but Sinc had deleted his previous explanatory posts.
He was then asked if the “independents exemption” applied to Oakeshott and Windsor.
At this point he started to cry.
He also revealed that, once elected, Beetrooter’s f-i-l could use electoral office allowances to fund “the cause”.
No redeeming features.

Why don’t you just game out what happens if Trump – or any Republican – wins the next presidential election Monty?

1. Trump is going to win the nom unless he has a health issue. The indictments will take a long time to work into trials. Lawyers can delay that stuff quite easily.

2. If Trump somehow draws another inside straight and regains office, it will all depend on his mindset. Basically he had the opportunity on J6 to implement a fascist takeover. So many of his most fervent supporters wanted it, they worked so hard to make it possible, but when the time came for him to strap on the Stalin moustache and cut throats… he chickened out.

3. After four years in the wilderness, does he have more hunger or less? If the time comes and he has to make a decision to go all in on destroying the Republic, can he finally extend the falanges and make with the Force Lightning? I don’t think he has the cojones for it. He didn’t last time. He hasn’t changed.

4. Others will bet that he does, or maybe the Bannon types will plan better to turn it into a coup and take the decision out of his hands. That would make J6 look like a picnic.
