The Bondi Junction stabbings – brought to you by the labore pardee

and assorted canbra cockroaches

Let’s not forget the almost entire higher education establishment and many high schools who encouraged and still do the almost weekly protests and demonstrations praising the Palestinian cause when they really mean Hamas and their atrocities.

Just Thursday just gone I was muttering to wifey about two police strolling into a roadside eatery with pistols on their hips. Having been targeted by a sh*thead cop during the batflu fascism, it still bugs me… but incidents like Bondi Jcn today make me a bit reticent.

It’s about to be tested due to the Misinformation Bill, if it isn’t already – I believe some fellow who posts on X has been fined c. $75K by Ms Inman Grant, the e-safety commissioner, which he is refusing to pay.

Already tested in the High Court in the early 2990s. Unless the e-safety commission is a properly constituted court, she is out of luck.

“2024. Russia held scheduled presidential elections, Ukraine did not.”

Well yes, but St Volodymyr the Pure had to ban elections, ….., to “protect” democracy.
In much the same way, that he had to imprison his political opponents, shut down media that did not fawn over him and loot the Orthodox Church, after shutting it down.
St Volodymyr is a man of the people. Not the Ukrainian people, of course, but of the people, who are running the show.
The Ukrainians are just the fools who do the dying.

Much the same will happen in the US later in the year.
The Irishman, Oh-Bummer and the rest of Biden’s deadshit handlers know full well they cannot even steal the 2024 election, so, ….., it will be “postponed”, to …… protect democracy, of course.

Reference the disgusting events in Sydney, I would hope, that all Cats take a moment and pray, or at least give some thought to, the families of those innocents, who have been affected by the actions of some deranged lunatic and the unforgivable policies, of the Australian Parliament, since 1975, that has caused this abomination to occur.

What a shameful bunch of traitorous dogs our politicians have been, for 50 years.

By chance I called my Walgett client to see how planting is going for them. They were worriedly waiting for news of their son who thankfully missed being in the area by less than five minutes.
A school friend ( as in another parent from children’s school) gave first aid to one of the victims and is now through the first bottle of wine dealing with the shock.

The obvious answer here is that all shopping centres of any significant size (stuff the little towns – we don’t care about those people) ONLY admit individuals who scan their digital id. That way the new Ministry of Public Safety can monitor the movements of those who have been identified by trusted media outlets as far right wing extremists, and block their entry to communal spaces if necessary (for the safety of normals, of course).

Commissioner to be briefed as investigation intensifies
Yoni Bashan
NSW Police Commissioner Karen Webb is yet to make any public remarks on the mass stabbing event in Bondi Junction but is being briefed on developments from senior officers this evening.
Ms Webb was known to have attended Randwick Racecourse on Saturday as a guest of Racing NSW chief executive Peter V’Landys. The commissioner is understood to have left the function during the afternoon but was notably absent during a press conference held outside Waverley Police Station around 6pm.
An official with knowledge of the Randwick event said the commissioner “left early”. The police briefing was provided by Assistant Commissioner Tony Cooke, commander of the Central Metropolitan Region, which takes in the suburb where the stabbing occurred.
A/C Cooke ended the press conference after numerous questions, citing a need to brief the police executive, which includes Ms Webb, on the information at hand.

How this deliberately engineered atrocity helps collectivists or moozleys sell themselves or their equally ridiculous causes to the populace remains to be seen.

Watching the footage with my mother who in between yelling ‘cockroach’ at the television and sipping whisky says how it is interesting that when the footage of the terrorist cockroach is shown, he seems desperate to get up the escalators, to go up….to where? Well, to where the children are, there’s a children’s playground on the third floor. As Mum says, it is like he wanted to go up to the children’s playground, there’s a children’s play area on level 5.

Returned from a day of outdoor pursuits to see events in Sydney.

Several points, headlined by this from the Tele:

“All she said was ‘Put it down’. Just once. Then she shot him in the chest and he went down,” witness Jason Dixon, 52, of Bondi said.

Entirely fair enough. Shouldn’t have even needed to say that. See threat. Eliminate threat. The End. The ‘put it down’ is (apparently) a sop to the Coroner, so they can say they gave him a chance.

In recent years, or so I have heard, there has been a marked change in doctrine – sparked by shithouse US responses to active shooters in Broward County in Florida, and at the Texas school in Uvalde County. It’s not ‘wait for the ninja turtles’ any more, it’s (allegedly) ‘charge in, stop the killing and stop the dying’. This is to be applauded and should also be kept separate from the nufferverse’s ‘oh but they now have M4s to put us all in Death CamPs’ narrative.

Ordinary jacks have shooters. Occasionally, and particularly in the current climate they use them – despite complaints from dickheads about jacks packing heat while walking down the street or getting a coffee after 12 straight hours of getting yelled at by bogans. No, I am not unconditionally backing the jacks in their endeavours – but this is why they carry all the time.

If this had happened in jolly old Blighty, and unless there was a bloke with a narwhal tusk to put a stop to it the death toll may have tripled.

This dude may well be a Pali sympathiser or close to it, and was gutless enough to not bother to actually head over to Gaza and kick things off over there. However, and yes it is too early to tell, it is entirely possible he was one of the myriad of nuffies let onto the streets by repeated government failure to control their legions of Radio Rental people because it costs less to keep them on the street.

Every single derro on any CBD street has the potential to do exactly what this chap did today in Sydney.

Finally, Webb is a basket case with no communications skills, inspires nobody and should be immediately shunted into a one-bedder in Katoomba with a blanket over her legs so she can watch her stories on the picture wireless and stay warm, while an actual copper runs the joint.

Okay, righto. But I will tell you now that the comment I made is absolutely accurate. Every single derro is liable to do that, should the combo of ice and fortified wine tip them over.

I am NOT saying it is not a terrorist attack. There is saying in certain circles that before you nail your colours to the mast on any subject, you go through an ABC process:

A – Ask questions.
B – Believe nothing.
C – Check everything.

In any event, since you seem to be one of those people who complains about the MSM yet soaks up everything it feeds you – here’s this, a couple of minutes ago from the Tele:

It’s understood he may have been suffering mental issues, and was a rough sleeper.

‘Mental issues’ is a catch-all. ‘Rough sleeper’ is not.

‘Unhelpful to speculate’: PM, police chiefs, say Bondi motive unknownBy David CroweUpdated April 13, 2024 — 8.20pmfirst published at 8.18pm

Listen to this article
5 min
Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has warned against speculation about the motive for the brutal killings at a Sydney shopping centre when the location and nature of the crime is fuelling talk of a terror attack.
Albanese has urged Australians to avoid making assumptions about the motive for the attacks after he was briefed by security and police chiefs about the investigation into the identity of the attacker, who was shot dead at the scene.

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese is speaking after five people were stabbed to death and eight injured at a Bondi Junction shopping centre.

The prime minister made the comments after being briefed by Australian Federal Police chief Reece Kershaw and Australian Security Intelligence Organisation director-general Mike Burgess about the attacks any other danger to the public.
Albanese called the police officer who shot the assailant a hero for going alone to save lives, while he also praised the doctors, nurses, paramedics and bystanders who responded to the emergency.
“For these Australians, their first instinct in the face of danger was to help someone else,” he said.
“That is what we hold on to tonight as Australians. That’s confirmation of who we are: brave, strong, together.”

Sydney stabbing: Ash Good identified as victim of fatal attack at Bondi JunctionNatalie WolfeThe West Australian
Sat, 13 April 2024 8:20PM

Hours before her life was cruelly taken from her in a Sydney shopping centre, new mum Ash Good was posting a video to her Instagram of her nine-month-old baby Harriet smiling in her car seat.
The sun beams on the little girl’s face as she nibbles on a piece of bread and the song My Girl by The Temptations plays.
“I’ve got sunshine, on a cloudy day. When it’s cold outside, I’ve got the month of May,” the band sings.
Less than eight hours later, Ms Good and Harriet were shopping in Westfield Bondi Junction, in Sydney’s east, when a man armed with a hunting knife launched a violent stabbing attack through the shopping centre.

Horrified witnesses spoke of how the 40-year-old attacker, shot dead by police on Saturday afternoon, targeted Harriet and then turned on Ms Good, stabbing her as well.
In a final act of heroism, Ms Good ran to two brothers in the shop and begged them to take her baby. They used clothes from the nearby racks to try and stem the bleeding on both the mother and daughter but Ms Good’s injuries were too severe.
She died in St Vincent’s Hospital on Saturday night at the age of 38.

Either way, the lady copper did extremely well, as did the dude at the top of the escalator.

Ash Good was married, a friend of Laura Jayes, not sure where in the past she would have been involved with a ‘rough sleeper’ witnesses thought he was ‘on drugs’ and stumbling.

So, it begins.

Iran Launches Drone Swarm at IsraelDrone swarm is expected to reach the country overnight, an Israeli official confirmed
A barrage of drones was launched from Iran to Israel on Saturday, setting up a direct military confrontation between the two countries that threatens to spiral into a regional war.
Israeli military spokesman Daniel Hagari said that Iran launched drones from within its territory toward Israel late Saturday night. The miliary “is on high alert and is constantly monitoring the operational situation.”
President Biden rushed back to the White House on Saturday to meet with his national security team, as U.S. officials braced for a possible Iranian military strike.
Exactly how and when Iran might retaliate, after an attack in Syria in which it says Israel killed one of its top generals, is up to Tehran. But some U.S. officials expressed worry about a phased attack involving drones and ballistic missiles that could begin under cover of darkness.
The White House said Biden was cutting short a weekend trip to Rehoboth Beach, Del., and would meet with his national-security team in Washington “about events in the Middle East.” A U.S. official said the subject was Iran.

Some questions about the “random” attacker.

Is he a local or did he travel to Bondi? Why Bondi?
Where did he hide the knife?
Why did he go in, scope the place, then return with the knife?
Who has he been associating with in the past month or so?
Why did he target women and children and shy away from men?

Another question.

Why so few beat police in or around one of Sydney’s busiest shopping centres?

Live updates: Iran began UAV attack on Israel (Arutz Sheva, 13 Apr)

For the first time in the State of Israel’s history, Iran has begun a direct attack on Israel, launching dozens of UAVs towards the Jewish state, US reports said. …

At around 11:20p.m., a second round of UAVs was launched from Iranian territory towards Israel. Later reports said cruise missiles were also launched towards Israel.

A security source has reported that UAVs are being launched at Israel not only from Iran, but from other countries as well.

Security sources estimate that the UAVs will arrive in Israel between 2:00a.m. and 4:00a.m. on Sunday morning.

This’d suggest there will be a wave of missiles as well, launched later to coincide with the arrival of the drones.

Shopping centre security were conspicuous by their absence, at least in the images made public. I hadn’t even thought of it until reminded just now. As to what could they do when unarmed, there was film of one guy grabbing a white plastic chair and sallying forth.

It is possible that there were only a couple of shopping centre security staff on duty and therefore they were calling police and appraising them of the situation before they could do much else.

Westfield Bondi Junction is my local shopping centre.
I would only go there on average once a week and rarely at peak times.
Never on weekend unless it’s to go to Coles bright & early.

You do see security often at the Oxford street entrances on either side of Oxford street, under where you saw those glassed in walkways that go over the street.
But as I’m not there at peak times, I have zero idea of how much security is there then.

You often see plod walking around the street mall a block away (towards town).
There’s always a few street people walking around there.

Iran Launches Test Attack with Slow Drones
Iran has launched a drone attack on Israel that appears to be testing Israel’s defenses. The IDF has stated that it would take hours for the drones to even reach the country. Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel was prepared for a ‘“direct attack from Iran.” Tehran confirmed the action, with Iranian state TV reporting: “A significant drone operation by the IRGC against targets inside occupied territories has started.” Biden was called back from Delaware where he hides 40% of the time.

These Iranian drones are slow-moving. Iran’s defense ministry announced the start of mass production of drones in 2018, named the Mohajer-6 tactical and combat unmanned aerial vehicle. Their drones began back in the 1980s, but they were used for surveillance at that time. This appears to be a test of Israeli’s defenses rather than a serious attack since they are slow-moving and would provide Israel with ample warning.

IIRC it was the same shopping centre where a few years ago, at Christmas time, an elderly man, shopping there, went through the wrong door and despite searches of the shopping centre was not found — quite a few weeks later they found him dead in a stairwell, died of asphyixiation, dehydration and malnutrition. Great security and police work.

Used to be a feature in this part of the world. In their wisdom police higher ups closed them and shopping centre crime went through the roof.

While police are reduced to reacting to crime rather than acting to prevent it they are failing in their duty to the public.

We have seen this type of tactic before from both police and government. They are spinning a narrative. If he’s “known to police” he should, by now, be known to us.

It may be that identity is being withheld because his relatives need to be contacted first. There. That is all the benefit of the doubt I’m prepared to give them.

At present, my sensitive ears are hearing the grinding of reverse gears as Elbow, Wong, et al are distancing themselves from any hint of provocation and enabling.

Police reveal identity of Bondi Junction killer
Joel Cauchi has been named as the man responsible for the horror stabbing attack at Westfield Bondi Junction.
The 40-year-old who is originally from Queensland was shot dead by police after stabbing to death six people while walking through the shopping centre in a Kangaroos rugby league jersey about 3pm on Saturday.
NSW Police Assistant Commissioner Tony Cooke said Cauchi had been living in Sydney for some time.
“We are continuing investigations in relation to him,” he said.
“We believe he came to New South Wales last month. We have spoken to his family and we will continue to do so.
“We know that shortly after coming to Sydney he took possession of a storage facility which has been identified and we have worked through that very small storage facility.
“I said last night, there is still to this point nothing that we have, the information we have received, no evidence we have recovered, no intelligence that we have gathered that would suggest that this was driven by any particular motivation, ideology or otherwise

Killer came to NSW last month, had storage facility
Ellie Dudley
NSW Police Assistant Commissioner Anthony Cooke says the man at the centre of a horrific mass stabbing in Bondi suffered from mental health issues.
Queensland man Joel Cauchi, 40, was identified as the attacker on Sunday morning in a press conference held by police.
“We know that the offender in the matter suffered from mental health,” Cooke told reporters.
We are continuing to work through the profiling of the offender but very clearly to us at this stage it would appear that this is related to the mental health of the individual involved.”
Cooke confirmed Cauchi came to New South Wales last month and took possession of a small storage facility.
“As I had said last night, there is still to this point nothing that we have, no information we have received, no evidence we have recovered, no intelligence we have gathered, that would suggest that this was driven by any particular motivation, ideology or otherwise,” Cooke said.

Well I think I was wrong. I accept that.

The knifer has been identified as 40 year old Queensland man Joel Cauchi, who came to NSW last month.

May be not muesli, but still a terrorist.

If the Bondi killings are only due to insanity then our health system has failed. We are no longer removing dangerously unstable people from the general population thus putting us all into danger.

Not necessarily.

This may be a genuine case of mental illness or drug induced psychosis.

It will all come out in the wash.
