Here you go Mark – this is where Bar Beach Swimmer lives, from above. The beach is Bar Beach, the city is Ncl and the updrafts are perfect. 😀

Newcastle Coastal Flight (2020)

It’s a nice thing to go to a cafe on those beaches, have lunch, and watch the gliders in action.

No glider action over the Cafe, I am on the NW shore of Lake Mac, the thermals and the terrain aren’t conducive sadly,

Well, here’s my day’s tally: one pile-on starting, and I hope finishing, on page 5 of the Cat, that’s the negative. The positive is that Hairy and I went to a special lighting sale this arvo and purchased an Italian Murano glass chandelier for over our dining table. We’d decided the plain white glass pendant currently there was very boring. I also fell in love with an elaborate and very colourful bohemian glass chandelier with Swarovski and Murano features, rather Art Nouveau. It’s a work of art in itself, I was saying breathlessly. Get that too, says Hairy. We’ll decide what goes where later. So we got it. You only live once.

A little retail therapy never goes astray. We had lunch out too.

Thank you for listening, Cats. You know you can’t keep me down. 🙂

Despite the events of 7 October 2023, when almost 1500 Jews were raped, slaughtered, butchered, defiled, kidnapped into Gaza, on the Sabbath (it was also Simchas Torah), in mass murder not seen since the Holocaust.

Despite what I witnessed on 9 October 2023 at Town Hall Sydney, when I saw children wearing mock suicide vests at a protest where Muslims and leftists came out to protest Israel, despite the bodies scattered across southern Israel still being warm.

Despite being told that Monday night 9 October 2023 by NSW Police for Sydney Jews to steer clear of the Sydney CBD, therefore making it Judenfrei.

Despite seeing the footage of what ensued that night when NSW Police personally escorted Muslims and leftists down to the Sydney Opera House, and then stood and watched those ‘protesters” screech out “kill the Jews” and “gas the Jews”.

Despite seeing, week after week, massive protests on the streets of Sydney, Melbourne, London, NYC, LA, San Francisco, protests where leftist and Muslim ‘protesters’ screech out death to Jews, shout the genocidal cry that is “from the river to the sea”, carry placards with utterly offensive and obscene comparisons, such as claiming that Gaza is like Auschwitz.

Despite watching this federal government speak with forked tongues when it comes to condemning Jew hatred, yet being the gaslighting weasels they are, insisting that we also have to be mindful of “Islamophobia”.

Despite watching what happened last Friday night on the holy Sabbath, when well over hundred Muslims and leftists went to a Jewish suburb in Melbourne, a suburb I know well, and stood outside a synagogue intimidating Jewish residents and screeching Jew hatred.

Despite seeing the scenes of those Muslim ISIS loving bikies, led by a former terrorist, with yet another NSW police escort, make their way from Lidcombe to Coogee, to intimidate the Jews of the eastern suburbs.

Despite on Sunday afternoon coming face to face with the Palestinian protesters in Sydney’s CBD, and I can assure everyone, it was not a pretty spectacle.

Despite all of the above, despite the ongoing intimidation, despite the endless gaslighting, despite the major threats against my community (and I know this for a fact), despite the astronomical Jew hatred, at levels not seen since the 1930s and 1940s, despite all of this………………I’ve got a grip, I still get up every day, I still go to work, I cook, I bake, I hug my sister’s dogs, I care for my mother, I speak to friends, I laugh, in fact after the rally on Sunday for the hostages, a group of us went and had coffee and we laughed and laughed and laughed.

I’ll just say this, nobody knows what it is like, to know you have to be Jewish. You can sympathise, you can feel feel empathy and we are grateful to those of you who do, but you have no idea of how we Jews feel, of the fear we Jews feel because it is in our DNA. Two thousand years of persecution, pogroms, expulsions, slaughter, forced conversions and so on was bottled up in a genie bottle, but the events of 7 October 2023 has opened that bottle and the genie of Jew hatred is well and truly out.

Thanks Lizzie. I’ll also reiterate my comment from early this morning, which is what elicited the response from Johanna, a response that so here many seem to approve of. It was about the UK, and I’d written that it’s likely finished, I think the weekly protests on the streets of the UK’s major cities attest to the fact that the UK has serious problems with Islam. I stand by that comment from this morning.

It may have been the camera angle, but it seemed to me the pro- palli chap lost a lot of interest and enthusiasm and staggered off in a semi daze after receiving what looked a lot like a right cross.

Mark – the currawongs eat the figs from my neighbour’s fig tree and upchuck the seeds everywhere, including on my car. It is fun since most of them are tame, so they land in front of me and look slightly crosseyed. I wait. Sure enough after minute or two they chunder a lump of fig seeds, then turn their gaze to me. “Yes, thanks, I’d like some mince now!” Which I hand to them. I have fig seedlings growing all over the place. That’s what my lawnmower is for.

Cassie, Douglas Murray in the interview with Caroline Glick that I linked above has similar feelings of dismay about Britain, and also France and Germany. The discussion between the two about how these events are felt by Jewish people everywhere might also make you feel among friends. They contextualise their discussion by interspersing reference to various writings that they use to make sense of it all. I took a quiet hour with it, and you may enjoy to do that too.

Chin up, love, I’ve been reduced to shakes and tears over far less important things here and you have made a strong and dignified response. You are bearing up well, and as you’ve reminded us, Jews even managed to laugh and crack a joke in the camps. Until starvation and typhus left them too frail and wordless.

I look forward to better days, when Israel does what Douglas Murray suggests at the conclusion to this talk. He sees the next task after winning is for Israel to certain its Chosen People that Israel can defend them for all time; a shepherd to the flock. Douglas also stresses the West must rediscover its Judeo-Christian origins, where Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s recent conversion to Christianity leads the way.

I remember how he compared Rosie, Lizzie and me to those French women who’d collaborated with the Nazis during World War II. Those French women had their heads shaved after the liberation as punishment. Apparently, because we’d had the Covid jab, we’d also “collaborated” and he wrote that we also needed to have our heads shaved as punishment. A real charmer

What governments did to the people during the Covid lockdowns, especially in Victoria, was enough to break some people apart.

In TG’s case, he was of working age – not old – and iirc unattached. Trying to keep afloat financially and emotionally in such pressure cooker conditions would not have been easy for anyone

WTF are you talking about?
He frickin’ worked full-time in construction right through Covid as an “essential wukka”. Something he was happy to brag about whilst others were sitting at home watching their businesses evaporate and trying to home-school their kids.
And, as Bespoke points out, he showed signs of this pre-Covid.
Here’s the thing.
He only lost his job in construction post-Covid and couldn’t get another one.
Let that sink in.
Couldn’t get a job in construction in Melbourne in 2022.
Reading the tea-leaves, he got the arse the very first day his post-Covid protected status disappeared.
His cards were marked.
Why do you reckon that was?
Smoko room neo-Nazi chatter perhaps?
As for being “not old”, if you think he was 18, my mail is you are out by 15-20 years.
BTW, at what age do we stop excusing someone as “just being Hitler youth” and hold them responsible for being fully fledged SS?

The reality was that TailGunner thought Brievik “had the right idea” in dealing with young people who didn’t share his political views.
That is, hunting and shooting dead 77 kids at a youth camp.
And this wasn’t just a random late night drunken rant. He repeated it over several weeks in one form or another, often accompanied by increasingly unhinged links.
He isn’t so far removed from those swivel-eyed loons screaming “Gas the Jews” in Sydney a couple of weeks ago.

An Indigenous health leader and self-dubbed “accidental CEO” Janine Mohamed has been named the Australian of the Year for Victoria.

The 49-year-old Narungga Kaurna woman was announced as the recipient of the prestigious accolade at a ceremony held at the National Gallery of Victoria on Tuesday night.

The other recipients for the Victorian Australian of the Year awards were also named.

Animal justice advocate Glenys Oogjes was named the 2024 Senior Australian of the Year for Victoria.

Registered nurse and founder of Albury Wodonga Multicultural Community Events Inc, Bhakta Bahadur Bhattarai was dubbed 2024 Young Australian of the Year for Victoria.

And Betul Tuna, co-founder of Point of Difference Studio, is the 2024 Local Hero for Victoria.

They will join those from the other states and territories for the national awards to be announced on January 25 next year.

Ms Mohamed was recognised for longstanding work with the Lowitja Institute in Melbourne, a community health campaign and research institution.

Sharing the news of her nomination last week, she thanked the “anonymous person” who put her forward for the award.

“This nomination means so much to me, my family and the communities that have championed the work of cultural safety and anti-racism with me since 1998,” she wrote in a post on LinkedIn.

“My motivation to restore and improve the health outcomes and life experiences of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples was ignited by my strong and resilient Nanna, who raised me and through witnessing both the excellent and shockingly bad parts of life that she experienced.

“My passion for change has never been about personal accolades but about the joy of seeing the wins, outcomes and real choices for mob and the wider Australian community … But this is a really nice surprise.”

Initially studying nursing at the University of South Australia before moving to Melbourne in 2019, Ms Mohamed has worked to promote health policy and research, in order to boost health outcomes for Indigenous people.

Ms Mohamed was also awarded the Atlantic Fellows for Social Equity Fellowship in 2019, and a Distinguished Fellowship by The George Institute for Global Health Australia in 2021.

Back from the goff course. Not Royal Portsea, where Mr Andrews has been embarrassed out of even applying for membership.

Predictably, and in all likelihood due to relevance deprivation over the last week or so, the bored have turned up looking for stoushes.

Just now:

The reality was that TailGunner thought Brievik “had the right idea” in dealing with young people who didn’t share his political views.
That is, hunting and shooting dead 77 kids at a youth camp.

Correct. That is exactly what he did, and deserved every single keystroke of opprobrium he got in return, until he pissed off.

And this wasn’t just a random late night drunken rant. He repeated it over several weeks in one form or another, often accompanied by increasingly unhinged links.

Yes indeedy. The ‘I’m a bonged-up construction bloke hehe, look at the chicks’ was a straight-up slap across the chops to every single other person here who was banned from doing anything, including leaving their house in the Terror. And he laughed at them.

A piece of shit, probably going Radio Rental as well, but in any case looking out for him and him alone.

‘Oh but you never met him’

Seriously. According to the people who post here, those who have met the switch-flicking God Oracle have not walked away with the highest of opinions either.

Moral outrage, simply untrue: Marcia Langton slams Blak sovereignty’s Palestine stance

exclusive
By paige taylor
Indigenous Affairs Correspondent, WA Bureau Chief
@paigeataylor
9:27PM November 14, 2023
1 Comment

Distinguished Indigenous leader Marcia Langton has condemned the “Blak sovereignty” movement’s proposition that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians feel solidarity with Palestinians as “simply untrue”, saying there is very little that is comparable in the two peoples’ situations.

Professor Langton offered a withering assessment of the pro-Palestinian strand of the Indigenous rights movement after Australia Palestine Advocacy Network president Nasser Mashni wore a pin with both Aboriginal and Palestinian flags on his jacket during a discussion of the Israel-Hamas war on ABC’s Q&A program on Monday night.

It follows a decision by independent senator Lidia Thorpe – the voice of the Blak sovereignty movement in parliament – to announce on social media last month: “I stand with Palestine!”
Read Next

Jewish leaders such as Liberal MP Julian Leeser and prominent lawyer Mark Leibler were longtime and vocal supporters of the campaign for an Indigenous voice to parliament, which remote Indigenous communities mostly supported on referendum day but which the Blak sovereignty movement vocally opposed.

Professor Langton is the first Indigenous campaigner for the voice to write in the mainstream media about the Israel-Hamas war. Writing in The Australian on Wednesday, Professor Langton begins by describing the loss of thousands of lives in Gaza as unjustifiable. She condemns Hamas and says she is horrified and deeply saddened by the loss of lives in the Levant, the Israelis who were murdered and kidnapped by Hamas and the innocent Palestinians who are being used as human shields by Hamas.

“As an Indigenous Australian, I can have little effect in stopping these horrors but it is necessary to be clear about a few matters,” she writes.

“‘Blak sovereignty’ advocates have entwined two extraordinary propositions – one that is simply untrue and one that is a moral ­outrage.

“First, they claim that ‘Indigenous Australians feel solidarity with Palestinians’. This is false; it is the view of a tiny few, if put in those words. Most of us are aware of the complexity and that there is very little comparable in our respective situations, other than our humanity.

“Second, they refuse to condemn Hamas. I am aghast and embarrassed. They do not speak for me. I fear and loathe the possibility of further loss of life in this terrible crisis.

“I fear also that our multicultural society is being torn apart by people deluded about terrorism who have used their protests as a cover for anti-Semitism. Our Jewish and Palestinian communities deserve respect and compassion. I do not support the violence we have seen in Australia recently as a result of this conflict.”

Professor Langton is categorical that Hamas are terrorists and that Palestinian Islamic Jihad are terrorists.

Marcia Langton? Where do I know that name from?

A “Ten Pound Pom” I worked with, had been one of the British tankies who liberated Belsen. Was that all fake?

My grandfather ended up as a HM Land Forces motor pool Sgt after D Day and as he could speak German, got moved out of transport and into intel – he helped officers interrogate war criminals (he was a smart bugger and autodidact, became a pharmacist on the UK soldier scholarship or whatever it was post war). He was a civilian peeler (also got kicked out of an Anglican seminary and recused to marry grandma) pre war so that might have helped. Another horrifying part of his job in the transport pool was arranging for some of the dead to be given proper burials as Monty came into Bergen Belsen etc.

For the Holocaust to be a lie, tens of millions needed to commit to such a lie and all of the pre war and contemporaneous German records had to be faked by the Germans. It’s an insane idea.

If they didn’t commit war crimes and crimes against humanity, why did they rely on the Nuremberg defence?

Okay. Well, this is true:

2. As soon as he had skin in the game, i.e. ‘released’ at the first opportunity by his employer, it was someone else’s fault and he immediately dived straight into the Nuffer Pool deep end;
3. From there it was a short step to the avowed Nazi-affiliated mass murders of people in and barely out of their teens was not only acceptable but right; and

Easy to forget now that he is permanently posted to Balmoral as the King’s Second Assistant Salmon Warden.
I’m surprised his adoring public stand for it.

I see my number one Broken, the bigmouth who can’t back a bet, is here.
Two bets it was too gutless (or too broke) to back.

The equivalent of getting onto all fours & crawling backward in my presence.

What this blog needs is more frontline hotelier tales.
Something like this plot-line …
1. I got audited by XYZ Government Department.
2. They sent out a couple of smart-arsey city slicker kids (played by Indians)
3. These kids tried to pull some gotcha on me.
4. I pointed out the relevant section of the XYZ Legislation, proving them wrong and sent them packing with their tales between their legs.
5. The Department Head rang me to apologise and offered compensation.
Something like that.

How Mrs Stencho Pantyhose is now getting on with those recently arrived Muzzies living next door. Are they learning English yet?. A great language invented by those lovely English BTW.

Stuff like that. Really incisive stuff and all that.

In any authoritarian society, the possessor of power dictates, and if you try and step outside, he will come after you. This is equally true of Sovietism, of China and of Iran, and in our time it has happened a lot in Islam. The point is that it’s worse when the authoritarianism is supported by something supernatural.

In 1943, the swastika flew over the Norwegian Parliament.

Today, that little forecourt is pasted with Palestinian flags.

Beside the fortress there is an odd little memorial. It comprises a scattered grouping of empty chairs. During the occupation, hundreds of Norwegian Jews were rounded up and transported to Germany from the nearby dock. The chairs represent the few who returned. It’s one of the most poignant memorials I have ever seen.

I could never reach that sublime level of trolling. At least, not without my trusty AI side-kick.

on TG, it appears the forum is missing a convenient hate-figure to pile on and TG (or Monty?) was the last, good troll people miss the most. Strange how people need something or someone to hate on.

Seems like a vast store of hate would be needed to oppose ‘nearly everyone’.

I hate people who talk loudly on public transport. There, I said it. And will refuse to recant even if offered googol amounts of upticks.
