Arky:

This can be paraphrased much more concise and rudely: Their little groins are tingling and moist at the idea of all those masculine hordes of barbarians at the gates. Western women are now like that girlfriend who flirted with the bouncer and then started crying when he took it out, and suddenly expects you to take on the tattooed skinhead monster.

To me, it’s a variation on the flirty girl at the pub playing the old game of “Let’s you and him fight.”

Sharri Markson’s 5pm Sky News show is must watch TV on weeknights heralding the demise of Elbow’s prime ministership among his parliamentary colleagues as told to Canberra press gallery scribblers like Phabulous Phil Coorey of the AFR.

I particularly like the Herald Sun‘s James Campbell who calls Elbow our Chauncey Gardiner prime minister — the nicest thing you can say about him if you ignore his last 50 years as a radical ratbag.

Castrol Edge vs Mobil 1 – Which Motor Oil Is Best For You?

Castrol Edge vs Mobil 1? Picking the best synthetic oil for your car, truck, or even motorcycle can be somewhat challenging.

Not everyone has adequate knowledge of oil blends to make the right decision.

Besides, there is a myriad of choices on the market today, and between all these oils, they’re all rather good.

Consumers tend to stick to well-known, trusted brands to reduce the overall hassle. After all, we only want what’s best for our cars and automotive fluids aren’t where you should start skimping.

In most cases, the pick boils down to two names: Castrol Edge and Mobil 1.

These two high-quality oil varieties have been around for almost decades now. Both brands are subsidiaries of the biggest international oil companies.

Today, we’re getting into a thorough comparison between Castrol Edge vs Mobil 1 to figure out which one is the best…

In these comparisons, we’ll be looking at whether Castrol Edge or Mobil 1 is right for your car. We’ll then get into the nitty-gritty of the differences between them. In addition, we’ll also detail the processes of how to change your own engine oil, and the top motor oil brands out there.

Wuhan Lab Scientists Conducting Bat Experiments in America

A group of scientists associated with the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) is reportedly using taxpayer funds to import bats and conduct Ebola experiments in the United States. The project, led by Colorado State University (CSU) virologist Greg Ebel, has raised concerns among lawmakers due to its association with the EcoHealth Alliance (EHA), which previously provided funding to the WIV for bat-based coronavirus research.

Americans will pay the bill for this reckless research center in Colorado to the tune of $6.7 million. Why? Ebola is certainly not an issue in America and we have the capacity to treat the virus. The use of taxpayer money for these experiments has drawn attention in light of previous controversies surrounding the funding of bat coronavirus research. This development has reignited discussions about the potential risks and ethical considerations associated with such research initiatives.

The plan to ship countless bats from around the world to the US and infect them with an array of contagious diseases. The GOP is demanding that the NIH end all federal funding to EcoHealth. Scientist Greg Ebel insists the lab is not intended for malicious purposes. “This isn’t a bat COVID lab. It’s not a bioweapons lab. We’re not working with Ebola or Nipah virus or any of these things. I’m not interested in losing my job or going to jail or interested in doing research that’s going to carry home pathogens to my wife or my child. Those kinds of things are beyond ridiculous,” he told reporters.

So we just experienced a pandemic caused by an “accidental lab leak” from China, and now they want to open a lab here with US tax dollars. This is an absolute attack on America from within. Take these experiments to an isolated corner of the world and use Big Pharma dollars to fund the studies as they are the ones who will profit.

I think the title for this should be “Gay man sodomises kids show… again”..

Speaking on the first episode of Unleashed (essentially the new version of Doctor Who: Confidential), Davies explained: “Time and society and culture and taste has moved on, and there’s a problem with Davros of old in that he’s a wheelchair user who is evil, and I had problems with that … of associating disability with evil.
“When the world changes Doctor Who has to change as well.
“So we made the choice to bring back Davros without the facial scarring, and without the wheelchair or his support unit which functions as a wheelchair. I say, ‘this is how we see Davros now, this is what he looks like.’”

It doesn’t. It is funny, however, because from your descriptions prison is chock full of knowing nods between inmates, all victims of The Establishment, followed by profound understandings between the best blokes ever to walk the earth.

Who are you to say that just because you never did Crowbar Colledge it makes you wiser and and more authoritative than me ?

Who says I didn’t?

Maybe you are the one that missed out? Maybe you might have learned something … Got some “corners knocked’ off?

I may have learned not to go to prison ever again. That is, if I went in the first place.

But in good faith I still am ready to do this “big debate” that you claim is the strength of The Cat ?

No you’re not, because you never actually claim a position on something. Anything.

And:

I have been following the Cat for decades …back then you blokes were sharp and crisp … a great place to become informed .. It is interesting to see how things have changed

It is even more interesting to consider a proposition that nothing has changed here, but that you have changed. Significantly.

“We shall overcome because the arc of the moral universe is long, it bends toward justice,” Martin Luther King Jr once famously said.

Less “famously said” than habitually appropriated – like most of Dr King’s work (including his ‘doctorate’).

The originator – Massachusetts preacher Theodore Parker – said it less pithily but with more homiletic oomph (IMO):

I do not pretend to understand the moral universe. The arc is a long one. My eye reaches but little ways. I cannot calculate the curve and complete the figure by experience of sight. I can divine it by conscience. And from what I see I am sure it bends toward justice.

Beautiful and profoundly true.

REPORTER RECALLS ENCOUNTERING HAMAS GUNMEN AT SHIFA IN 2009

UK doctor who worked at Shifa confirms Gaza hospital used for ‘non-medical purposes’

‘There was a part I wasn’t to go near, and if I did, I’d be in danger of being shot,’ says physician, describing an atmosphere of ‘collective paranoia’ and ‘genuine fear’ of Hamas

A British doctor who used to work at Shifa Hospital, Gaza’s largest medical center, under which the IDF says Hamas operates a major command and control base, has confirmed that there were areas of the hospital where he could not go, or else he would be shot.

In a recent interview with the English-language channel of French broadcaster France24, the doctor, who declined to give his name for fear of endangering his colleagues in Gaza, said he had worked at Shifa and other hospitals in Gaza and the West Bank for three months, three years ago.

“When I was first asked to work there [at Shifa], I was told there was a part of the hospital I was not to go near, and if I did, I’d be in danger of being shot,” he was quoted as saying.

“Was it explained to you why that was?” asked journalist Irris Makler in the recorded conversation.

“No, but implicit was that it was being used for non-medical purposes,” replied the doctor.

A British doctor who used to work at Shifa Hospital, Gaza’s largest medical center, under which the IDF says Hamas operates a major command and control base, has confirmed that there were areas of the hospital where he could not go, or else he would be shot.

In a recent interview with the English-language channel of French broadcaster France24, the doctor, who declined to give his name for fear of endangering his colleagues in Gaza, said he had worked at Shifa and other hospitals in Gaza and the West Bank for three months, three years ago.

“When I was first asked to work there [at Shifa], I was told there was a part of the hospital I was not to go near, and if I did, I’d be in danger of being shot,” he was quoted as saying.

“Was it explained to you why that was?” asked journalist Irris Makler in the recorded conversation.

“No, but implicit was that it was being used for non-medical purposes,” replied the doctor.

“And did you see anything non-medical or did you obey the instruction and stay away?” the interviewer continued.

The doctor said: “I stayed away, but I saw a few dodgy-looking non-medical characters going in and out all the time. It was a ward leading to a basement. As I said, I didn’t go there; so I behaved myself.”

“They would say there could be many other reasons that you would be told not to go to a particular area of a hospital. It’s not unusual,” the journalist argued.

“Well, I was welcome everywhere else, and as I say, the doctors and nurses there were very welcoming and very kind, and the hushed tones under which this was said were consistent with all the other hushed tones with which Hamas was discussed. You know, people were genuinely fearful,” the doctor replied.

“I cannot emphasize too much the air of collective paranoia that existed there,” he continued.

The physician also reported to the journalist that if hospital staff were 10% frightened of possible Israeli airstrikes, they were 90% frightened of being persecuted by Hamas.

Separately, a journalist from Italy who spoke to The Times of Israel on condition of anonymity recounted that in 2009, right after Israel’s Operation Cast Lead against Hamas, he visited Gaza’s hospitals looking to interview wounded members of Fatah — the rival Palestinian faction that Hamas violently ousted from the coastal enclave in 2007.

“Eventually, I realized that they were all at home — Fatah members were too afraid to stay in the hospital, even if they were wounded,” the journalist said.

“Shifa is a very large compound. I got lost inside it, and at some point I ended up on an underground floor, and I found myself in front of two armed Hamas men in military attire, who told me to get out.”

“I got the impression they were guarding a security door that gave access to their underground infrastructure.

Several Palestinian sources I spoke with later on confirmed that Hamas’s command and control center was located under Shifa Hospital and that [Hamas leader] Ismail Haniyeh had been hiding there throughout the duration of Operation Cast Lead.”

Shortly after the October 7 onslaught in which 1,200 Israelis were brutally slaughtered by Hamas terrorists and around 240 were kidnapped into Gaza, the IDF revealed that Hamas has been using Gaza’s hospitals for military operations, a claim confirmed by the US administration.

Shifa Hospital is believed to be one of the nerve centers of Hamas’s underground terror infrastructure. The IDF has been operating around and in the medical center for more than a week, uncovering what it has said is evidence of Hamas’s use of the site for terrorist activities.

The hospital was almost completely evacuated on Saturday, with most patients, staff and displaced people who were sheltering in the building departing, leaving behind only a basic crew to care for those too sick to move, and Israeli forces in control of the facility.

Best Man just found two newborn dorpers (twinnies) who have been rejected by their mother. Together with the one abandoned almost a month ago, we have quite a woolly nursery.

Interestingly, we had only five ewes, all of whom birthed, and almost half of them rejected their ultra cute babies. I guess they just want ‘me time’; they’ll be sporting tatts next.

Daughter has a knack with unwanted offspring of all species and I’m sure these littlies soon will be following her everywhere, but with church commitments today and tomorrow, best man has taken on the role of nanny.

Comparing what Hamas did on 7/10 to atrocities either recent or back in the dim past with a view to giving “both sides” a pity run has no meaning whatsoever to me.

I’m not interested in historical cruelties. I’m only interested in getting those hostages back and punishing the perpetrators.

All very well to separate yourself and theorise on the principles of justice and its historical applications…when you have no skin in the game. I want these buggers cowed into silence and introspection and the knowledge that, if they touch one hair of my grandchildren’s heads, they will be incarcerated for the rest of their natural and consider themselves fortunate.

We are sailing east, the sun is behind the low ridge line to the south, casting everything in a pallid glow. We will not see it again until we pass down through Finland.

The cope and seethe on the IDF post showing the hostages being taken into Shifa is a wonder to behold.

What’s needed now, for a little frisson of trendoid excitement, is some for some junior Israeli government person to suggest there is a growing Mossad hit list of Hamas facilitators.

Some journalists and columnists should be rumoured to be on the hit list. That would put the cat among the pigeons and put the wind up a lot of people who think that they will never be held responsible for the crap they write and “report”.

On 7/10 the Hamas force was fuelled by a drug whose name is unfamiliar to me but obviously helped light up a frenzy of rape and murder. Douglas Murray’s point that the SS resorted to these mind altering methods but Hamas is more cold blooded might not be correct.

Johanna, Rabz threw the party on Saturday, not me. Jupes and his busy wife threw the dinner party for fourteen a few weeks before. As usual, on both occasions guests came with various offerings. It was great fun, we drank too much as usual and the conversation flowed raucously with the wine. It was good for Cassie to relax out with friends. She tells us the Jews who work in her company, which is a large one, have banded together in a support group, which was good to hear. She’s not the only Jewish person stressed to the hilt by all this in Sydney.

Speaking of Rabz, when I got home at lunchtime today from dance class, which is quite a drive away, Hairy says did I know that Rabz has been made President of Argentina. So I had a look at the clips on Michael Smith News that have also been put up here and had to laugh.

Wonderful to see the Rabz doctrine prevailing IRL in quite extraordinary ways. For Rabz (whom you know too, Johanna, and who speaks kindly of you) it is to a large extent blowing off steam, but this guy is serious. Be interesting to see how that all pans out.

RE Hamas-style atrocities in other modern times, I know there have been a lot of vile things perpetrated in other conflicts, especially by Isis against men and women. Who can forget the riverside beheadings of men and the sexual slavery of Yadizi women, those who weren’t murdered? But there does seem to have been an extra nasty element in the Hamas attacks – the attacks on babies and children, chopping off an eight year old girl’s arm in front of her parents, and similar brutalites, including child burnings and other frenetic familial killing. These are things that were done by Nazis to Jews, because of a belief Nazis held about the non-humanity of Jews.

Hamas comes out of that same playbook.
Legitimate grievances don’t come into it.

Can the greens run cover for a group engaged in illegal activities??

Why yes, yes they can.

A climate activist will appeal against her conviction and fine for failing to allow police to access her mobile phone and laptop.

Joana Partyka, 38, pleaded not guilty in the Perth magistrates court to two charges of failing to obey a data access order.

Partyka, who also works for the Australian Greens, had her mobile phone and laptop seized from her apartment in March.
The devices allegedly contained confidential Australian Greens political information and a list of about 200,000 party donors.

Partyka told the court in September she asked the Greens for permission to allow police access to her devices but was told it would breach her employment contract, which could result in dismissal.

Magistrate Andrew Maughan handed down his judgment on Monday saying Partyka’s “belief, although perhaps honestly held, was not objectively reasonable given the situation she found herself (in)”.

He said it was uncontentious that Partyka was subjected to an employment contract that stated she not disclose or discuss any Australian Greens information or data to any third party without their consent.

Partyka, who is a campaigner for the Disrupt Burrup Hub group, was fined $1,200 plus court costs.

So a pedo just needs to have a contract with a company stating no unauthorised access and bobs your uncle??

In Your Local Council News

A local council notorious for its social justice activism will vote Tuesday night on a Greens-led motion on whether or not to call for a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip, 14,000km away.

The motion, brought by Greens councillor Dylan Griffiths, calls on the council to advertise on behalf of a Gazan relief charity and “call on the Australian government to urge for a ceasefire and peace negotiations”.

The proposal also moves “that Council write to Penny Wong and Anthony Albanese to notify them of this motion and to express our support for peace in the region”.

While the motion explicitly criticises Israel’s “attack” on Gaza, it makes no mention of Hamas or its October 7 attacks on Israel which saw more than 1200 civilians slaughtered and around 200 more taken hostage by Palestinian terrorists.

Inner West Council has a long record of getting involved in both foreign and domestic affairs, despite repeated calls for the body to focus on the needs of residents.

In 2010, Marrickville Council – which was later amalgamated into the new Inner West Council – passed a motion in support of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.

In 2021 another Greens councillor, Colin Hesse, made an unsuccessful attempt to change the name of the council’s Victoria Rd because of its links to Queen Victoria and the British Empire.

More recently the council declared that it was “all in” for the Yes campaign to support the Voice to Parliament.

Despite this activism, Inner West locals have often been less than enamoured with the council’s services with a recent attempt to push residents to recycle food scraps in the name of fighting climate change widely panned and plagued by missed collections and overflowing bins.

Australia/Israel & Jewish Affairs Council Executive Director Dr Colin Rubenstein called on “sensible” councillors to reject the motion, saying calls for a permanent a ceasefire play into the hands of Hamas.

“If you were going to move a motion, it should call for Hamas’ unconditional surrender, a handing over of all weapons and the release all 240 hostages and the end of the misery it is inflicting on Gazans it callously abuses as human shields as well as on Israelis.

“But really councillors should serve their ratepayers by sticking to the basics – rubbish, recycling bins and road repairs – rather than dabbling in international affairs.”

Meanwhile in the Territory:

The woman accused of throwing a cream crepe in Chief Minister Natasha Fyles face has told the Darwin Local Court she is taking the matter to trial to be heard “by my peers”.

Real estate agent Suzi Milgate arrived at court on Monday with a dozen supporters in tow, some wearing anti-vax slogan tees and refusing to stand when directed for the judge’s entry.

After telling Judge Tanya Fong Lim she had no legal representation but planned to in the future, 56-year-old Milgate said she was pleading “not guilty”.

“I know you’re pleading not guilty, but in relation to your representation have you actually made the appointment (with a lawyer)?” Ms Fong Lim asked.

Milgate said: “that will be in the future – I seek a trial, and the trial to be heard by my peers”.

The judge said she would not list trial dates until Milgate had a lawyer and could confirm their availability, at which point Milgate said “I do have a lawyer”.

Asked who her lawyer was, Milgate replied “he’s down south”.

Ms Fong Lim said if there was a lawyer down south, she recommended they “read our court rules”.

“If you can provide your lawyer’s contact details to the prosecution so they can speak to your lawyer about this matter, that would be helpful to everybody,” Ms Fong Lim said.

Asked again outside court who was providing her legal representation, Milgate said “wait to see”.

Milgate was charged with aggravated assault and using a carriage service to harass after the alleged attack on the Chief Minister at Nightcliff markets on September 24.

Speaking to the NT News after the incident, Ms Milgate said: “a cream pie? For f — sakes. That’s not an assault, is a cream pie f — ing assault? And it’s fresh cream, how hard is fresh cream?”

Milgate remains on bail and will return to court next year.

A good example of the value in subscription research is the OpenAI blow up over the past 48 hours.
It’s like the mainstream media is chasing it’s tail over what is going on where some industry insiders are releasing some pretty incitement commentary behind their paywalls.
It’s rare that an executive order could have such an impact.
Sam Altman wants to be inside the tent where AI regulations are being formulated (not the ridiculous EO rules) at the same time he has to navigate the “de-cels” that crafted the EO and who currently control the OpenAI board.

I look forward to him either popping up on the All-In podcast in person or him using that as the platform to get his story out.
