The so-called “eshay” who brazenly broke into the City Beach home of Woodside boss Meg O’Neill to steal her luxury cars then posed for photographs with the stolen vehicles has been jailed for more than four years.

Ill compare and contrast with the scrotes who stole my nephews Hyundai last week.
If they catch them.

Im not holding out any hope of jail time…

heres an example..
A Geraldton teenager has narrowly avoided jail over his role in a stealing spree worth more than $150,000, which included multiple vehicles and hundreds of parcels — some of which contained potentially lifesaving cancer medication.
Tommylee Glen Stephens appeared in Geraldton Magistrates Court on Monday for sentencing on five counts of stolen motor vehicle, one count of aggravated burglary and stealing over the series of offences in Webberton earlier this year.
The 18-year-old pleaded guilty to all charges on July 7 and has spent two weeks in custody.

About 60% of EV sales are to fleet buyers, who are ESG-affected climate zombies.

Hertz announced this week they’re selling off another 10,000 Teslas because the punters don’t want to rent EVs.

Hertz to sell 10,000 more EVs than planned, and stock suffers record plunge (25 Apr)

When the other fleet buyers start following Hertz it’s going to be carnage.

NDIS Minister Teats Peanuthead has backed the NDIS, squawking the “benefit to the economy is profoundly profound”

BoN: How amazing that the Minister for the NDIS thinks the NDIS is amazing and wonderful

Well, Teats would think that way, given he’s been bonking a bimbo who’s the CEO of an organisation that hoovers hundreds of thousands of taxpayers’ dollars per year in NDIS “packages”.

But yeah, no massive conflicts of interest, no blatant corruption, just nothing to see here, eh, braindead incurious incompetent meeja imbeciles?

U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen condemns China’s export dumping as cheap goods flow into global markets. She warns Beijing that “nothing is off the table” to tackle the behavior.

China’s Neoliberal Communism

How should we describe the system currently used in China? It’s the CCP, Chinese Communist Party, so it’s obviously a Communist nation, but look at the crazy-rich Asians and the huge corporations there. It’s not Uncle Joe’s Communism, that’s for sure. So, what is it? Whether we want to call it Chinese Communism, Communism 3.0, or Neoliberal Communism, it’s a Communist state that’s operating with a controlled, Potemkin neoliberal “market” economy. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay spells it out. Join him for a little storytelling with a point!

What is the purpose of Child Protection? Read these paragraphs and weep. Hun:

A seven-week-old baby whose family was the subject of repeated child protection notifications died with a cocktail of drugs in his system just over two weeks after a warning that he and his sibling were being neglected.

Child protection authorities had only just started investigating the Morwell family of “Baby B”, who cannot be named for legal reasons, when he died in December 2020, despite staff at The Royal Women’s Hospital raising concerns about his welfare from before he was born, Coroner Audrey Jamieson found this week.

An autopsy report found the boy died with eight drugs including methylamphetamine, oxycodone, tramadol and heroin metabolites in his system, believed to have been ingested through breastmilk, formula or via “environmental contamination”.

The Occult Theosophy of the United Nations
The United Nations is a religious organization, and the religion behind it is a cult. More specifically, it is a theosophical cult based on an “evolutionary” vision for mankind that it wants to control. This fact is revealed in a strange book by late UN big-wig and creator of the World Core Curriculum (Common Core in the United States), Robert Muller, from about 25 years ago titled 2000 Ideas for a Better World, which he published in four volumes in the lead-up to the year 2000 (links below). Muller delivered this book and a summary of the key spiritual points (https://search.archives.un.org/upload…) to the UN Secretary-General in March of 1999 in advance of the Millennium Assembly with the hope that it would guide UN global policy and global spirituality in the 21st century and third millennium. He then went on to publish five thousand more ideas. The book is shocking in its contents, and in this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay dives into a rather narrow sample of the troubling ideas contained in the summary document Muller stressed to the UN Secretary-General to set the agenda for our current century. Join him to find out what the UN really is.

A hugely tragic coincidence?
Don’t know why the Grob 109B motorglider crashed today. Should not have been a weather issue. Don’t know pilot experience level. No doubt I will hear something shortly.
The earlier accident in September 2022 speaks to poor training and failure to inculcate the necessary respect for aviation during it. As I just said to Mrs Eyrie, a flight from Mt Beauty to Wollongong would only be undertaken by us in severe clear Group Captain type weather in our aircraft. Heaps of mountains and bush on that route. If you go down and survive you are likely to maybe be found decades later.
Accelerated training is one thing. Just about all sailplane pilots have no trouble flying a general aviation bugsmasher with their stick and rudder skills but developing the necessary judgement to operate the aircraft cross country, which is different, takes time and exposure to the circumstances.
CASA is remiss in handing regulatory powers to idiot amateur organisations like the Gliding Federation of Australia (GFA) and Recreational Aviation Australia (RAAus). Mrs Eyrie did her Restricted Pilot Licence nearly 30 years ago. No way, now or then, would I let her learn to fly with either organisation.

Speaking of the Albanese government, Shorten and NDIS. I am currently drafting a letter to Albanese, Shorten, every member of their parliamentary party and the media about the filth that is NDIS.

I have a profoundly disabled 70 year old brother who has been domiciled in a terrific care facility for over 13 years. It is all he knows. It is his life. He cannot talk or feed himself, dress himself, bathe himself, go to the toilet, or perform any of the mundane activities of life we all perform. Despite being vaccinated because it was required to stay in the facility he has had Covid multiple times,

The Albanese/Shorten Dept of Health have advised me (not him yet, because of the damage it will do) that despite his disabilities which are deteriorating daily they are kicking him out. Because of his age NDIS will defund him and send him to an unspecified aged care facility somewhere in Tasmania.

To say I am livid is an understatement. I will scream their inhumanity and evil from the rooftop. Every media outlet in the nation will be copied my letter and no-one will be in doubt about their inhumanity.

F**K them all and the horse they rode in on…

Earlier:

Interesting that Kristi Noem thinks killing a puppy for the crime of being “untrainable” (usually code for the owner being incompetent) is an anecdote that will endear her to Republican voters.

This is typical of the all-too-common urban flabby know it all, who despite knowing everything has no knowledge whatsoever of the concept of working dogs.

mUnter.

A dog on a farm, or any sort of property for that matter, is a tool. Like a spanner, or a tractor.

If a spanner breaks, or is otherwise not fit for the purpose you need it for, you throw it in a pit and get one that does. Unlike a dog, a spanner does not require vet bills and feeding – so, the answer is obvious.

If a tractor breaks, there are enormous repair bills – and unlike a poddy calf, you cannot separate a tractor from the herd and keep it in the house paddock for a pat, nor train it to come inside to have a scone with jam on weekends. Again, this is obvious.

To most people. But not you.

“My father is a mailman,” Amy answered.
“What does your father do Billy?”
“He plays piano at a whorehouse,” Billy said as though it was the greatest job in the world.
The teacher was shocked and immediately changed the subject to history.
After school, the teacher went to Billy’s house. His father answered the door. The teacher explained what Billy had said, and demanded an explanation.

I’m sorry, but this is idiocy on a truly galactic scale (the Courier-Mail):

The Wieambilla massacre that claimed the lives of two police officers and a hero neighbour could have been prevented by a national firearms register, according to the federal Attorney-General.

Ah. No. No, it could not. The reason is that firearms registers and the like only apply to registered and lawfully-purchased firearms. Not firearms that are routinely used every second day in Melbourne and Sydney to eliminate competition, and not firearms that anyone with a gorilla or two can buy – along with ammo to suit.

Constables Rachel McCrow and Matthew Arnold, and neighbour Alan Dare were shot and killed by three Christian extremists, Gareth, Nathaniel and Stacey Train, at a remote property 300km to Brisbane’s west.

Nathaniel had his firearms licence suspended in the months leading to the tragedy.

Okay, but:

But the killer was still able to purchase a significant stockpile of ammunition, because police were unable to locate Train and physically take possession of his licence, leaving him free to purchase weapons.

He was able to legally purchase a stockpile of ammo. He would also have been able to illegally purchase both ammo and weapons. This is not, I say again – NOT – a problem for run of the mill gun owners.

The federal government’s reforms will close these alarming loopholes, Attorney-General Mark Dreyfuss said it was the “precise situation this national firearms register is designed to address”.

No it’s not, because this situation is unenforceable. ‘Hello Mr Gun Shop Owner, I’d like to purchase a heap of firepower plus hundreds of rounds of ammo because God is turning up the day after tomorrow.’

‘Uh. No.’
‘Oh okay. I’ll get them from somewhere else then.’

The register will provide frontline officers with real-time information on guns and firearm parts once established to allow police to know where guns are, who owns them and what the risks to officers and the community are, Mr Dreyfus said.

No, it will not allow the jacks to know where guns are. Barry can give his guns to Macka every day of the week who could take them interstate or anywhere, and nobody would be the wiser.

But the AG said he “frankly admits” the register will be unable to track illegal or unregistered guns, which he described as “an ongoing problem in Australia”.

There we go, buried deep in the piece. It’s just fluff, and expensive fluff at that.

‘If Europe does not wake up, you will all be dead,’ says Naomi Wolf, author of Facing the Beast

Naomi Wolf has been redpilled, the pandemic, the universal talking points, the vast printing of money to cause inflation, the injectables are a cull, the open borders are the controllable replacements. CDBC, social credit she gets it all. absolutely worth a watch.

The pieces of the puzzle have been discussed on the cat for years and here is another liberal who has looked at the facts, seen through the deception and the fascist horror that awaits us all and put it all together.

The reality is we are already well and truly far down this road, its not even clear if its possible or even how to escape this neo-marxist agenda given how far and wide it has infiltrated every major organisation and the entire western governance centers.

The war on Russia is nothing more than eradicating any opposition to this agenda, imo If ukraine cant hold back Russia then NATO will inevitably get involved. China with its competing marxist ideology is inevitably next on the chopping block, not that thats a bad thing.

NYC Reaches $2.1 Million Settlement in “Toxic Whiteness” Discrimination Case After Replacing 3 White Women With Less Qualified People of Color

https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2024/04/nyc-reaches-2-1-million-settlement-toxic-whiteness/

Equality in today’s world has been replaced with equity because the theory behind the policy assumes that people of color need an extra push or training wheels to reach the same level of success as their White counterparts, and therefore, Whites should be disadvantaged in the workplace.

Evidence is provided that adding 100 % of N1-methyl-pseudouridine (m1?) to the mRNA vaccine in a melanoma model stimulated cancer growth and metastasis, while non-modified mRNA vaccines induced opposite results, thus suggesting that COVID-19 mRNA vaccines could aid cancer development. Based on this compelling evidence, we suggest that future clinical trials for cancers or infectious diseases should not use mRNA vaccines with a 100 % m1? modification, but rather ones with the lower percentage of m1? modification to avoid immune suppression.

There was cannibalism in remote tribes in PNG well into the 20th century. It was ritualistic. Same for New Hebrides (Vanuatu) and elsewhere in the South Pacific.

Unlike Sleepy Corpse, I have a genuine cannibalism story involving my grandfather (his neighbour provided a tasty snack for marauders) which was a terrible tale of the early C20th.

In the old Goroka museum shop you could pick up a cookbook listing recipes for local foods, and under “M”…you guessed it. Like Puddleglum’s cookbook, but no Marshwiggles.

This Gay Woman Is Always Getting Comments Asking How She Can Vote Republican, Her Response Is Epic

“Republicans hate gays and they hate women. This is what every leftist tells me in my comments. Mind you, I’ve never had somebody say this sh*t to me in person

Let’s say that’s true. Republicans hate gays and they hate women. What the f*ck am I doing voting for them? Well, let me explain it loud and clear:

– I would rather vote for a party who hates me than vote for a party who doesn’t know what a woman is

– I would rather vote for a party taking away my rights with a bunch of bills that none of you f*cking read than literally have my rights taken away daily

– There are men in your bathroom

– There are men taking over your sports

– They are depleting what you are as woman, you on’t matter.

Oh, but Proposition Blow Me is gonna take away my rights. You guys are ridiculous. They are literally giving you something to harp on while they are taking away every single woman’s right in America.

So you know what? Thanks for the advice. I got it. I’m good. I know who I’m voting for. Enjoy the men in your bathroom. Enjoy it. Go woke.”

CDU Party Head in Thuringia wants:

1) Social Media licenses
You would need one to post stuff online, they can be revoked due to bad behavior.

2) A state managed social media algorithm
The German state would then control which posts to show and to whom.

3) Real Name Obligation
You can’t post from an anonymous account!

4) Bot ban
It’s punishable by criminal law to use bots and fake accounts.

5) Social Media literacy
Training for people to spot fake news and disinformation.

The 1994 election changed South Africa from a country where black and other people of colour were denied most basic freedoms, not just the right to vote. Laws controlled where they lived, where they were allowed to go on any given day and what jobs they could have. After apartheid fell, a constitution was adopted guaranteeing the rights of all South Africans no matter their race, religion, gender or sexuality.
But that has not significantly improved the lives of millions, with South Africa’s black majority, which makes up more than 80% of the population of 62 million, still overwhelmingly affected by severe poverty.
The official unemployment rate of 32% is the highest in the world, and the rate for young people between the ages of 15 and 24 is higher than 60%. More than 16 million South Africans – 25% of the country – rely on monthly welfare grants for survival.

The attempt to impose censorship on social media is not confined to Australia. There is currently an attempt to do the same thing in Germany.
This from the website of eugypius:

comment image

Leading German politician calls for the state to issue “revocable social media licenses” for the privilege of commenting online
If only speech were not a right but a privilege granted selectively by the state, our democratic freedoms would be that much more secure.

You may remember this man. His name is Mario Voigt, and he is the head of the centre-right CDU in Thüringen. He made national headlines a few weeks ago for grievously threatening German democracy by agreeing to debate his AfD counterpart Björn Höcke on national television. Because the AfD in general and Höcke in particular are antidemocratic fascists, allowing them anywhere near a microphone is very likely to destroy our entire system of government, that is what a weak and failed state we have here in Germany. 

The duel between our leading Thuringian politicians was all but unwatchable, as indeed almost all political debates turn out to be. While Höcke could’ve acquitted himself better, Voigt’s performance was flat, uninspired and profoundly banal. Among other things, the man suffers from a peculiar rodentine aspect; he gnaws his way stiffly through bland preformulated arguments like a squirrel chewing a stale nut or a beaver gnawing through saplings. After the event, the CDU took to the press to declare victory, but polls showed that viewers found Höcke on balance more persuasive, which is of course the real reason that everybody told Voigt to avoid the confrontation. Voigt is intensely democratic and therefore extremely right about everything, but somehow – and this is very awkward to discuss – his being eminently righteous and correct in all things does not manifest in an ability to defeat the very wrong and evil arguments of his opponents. It’s very weird how that works, perhaps somebody should look into it.

Stung by this failure, Voigt has set off to find other means of defending democracy. This week, in the Thüringen state parliament, he gave an amazing speech outlining a five-point plan to protect German democracy from that other great menace, the free and open internet:

So how do we protect democracy in the area of social media? There are five approaches:

Ideally, we should agree to ban bots and to make the use of fake profiles a criminal offence.

There is also the matter of requiring people to use their real names, because freedom of expression should not be hidden behind pseudonyms

Then there’s the question of whether we should create revocable social media licences for every user, so that dangerous people have no place online. 

We need to consider how we can regulate algorithms so that we can revitalise the diversity of opinions in social networks.

And we also have to improve media skills.

For all that Björn Höcke is supposed to be a “populist authoritarian” opposed to representative government, I’ve never heard him say anything this crazy. Voigt, meanwhile, is a leading politician for the officially “democratic” Christian Democratic Union (you know they are democratic because the word is in their name), and he’s actually dreaming of requiring Germans to obtain state-issued licenses for permission to post their thoughts to the internet.

Because Voigt’s regulatory regime would entirely abolish online “freedom of expression,” it is unclear how banning bots and pseudonymity could ever defend it. Generally speaking, for a thing to be defended, it must first exist. Equally curious is Voigt’s belief that any “diversity of opinion” will survive his social media license scheme to benefit from the regulation of social media algorithms.

Voigt’s remarks provoked a massive uproar, and the man betook himself to Twitter for a brief moment of damage control:

comment image

The term “revocable licences” was incorrectly chosen. It was not intended to give the impression that the state should allocate access to social media to users. What was meant was that anyone who violates the law will be banned. The internet must not be a realm free of law.

What a sad duplicitous man, who crawls around fantasising about ever more draconian repressions to eradicate opinions he doesn’t like, and when he is caught out pretends it was a mere slip of the tongue and that he meant almost the opposite of what he originally said.

As I reported in February, the German Interior Ministry has declared war on the political opposition, announcing wide-ranging plans to restrict the speech, travel and economic activity of anyone deemed to be on “the extreme right,” which is just a slur for anyone whose politics the establishment doesn’t like. While this campaign has provoked sharp opposition both abroad and here in Germany, it seems to have shifted the terms of debate, bringing even more repressive schemes into the realm of contemplation. Voigt is too dim to have come up with his social media licensing plan all on his own. These are ideas being cooked up in back rooms by unholy swarms of think-tankers and lobbyists, determined to find a means of finally freeing German democracy from the inconvenient opinions of German voters.

Peta Credlin yesty:

The online world is something that most of us now live in but don’t think about – or at least don’t think about it as much as we should.

But given how much time we spend on social media and given its place in driving opinion and even shaping character, a thorough analysis of its pluses and minuses, and what might be done about them, is long overdue. Because in so many ways, we are what we read and watch.

Because the church service was being live-streamed online, the alleged terrorist attack on the Assyrian Bishop Mar Mari Emmanuel happened in full technicolour and was then viewed millions of times by people all over the world.

The Australian eSafety Commissioner has ordered the footage be taken down because she says it involves “gratuitous violence” and X boss Elon Musk is fighting this in court as an infringement on free speech.

Given all the “gratuitous violence” and other graphic content on the internet, why this footage? Why remove the footage of the Christian bishop being stabbed and not the sermons of Islamist hate-preachers calling for violence and “death to the infidels” that helps breed terrorist radicalisation?

So, let’s be upfront about what’s really happened here. From the Prime Minister down, our authorities wanted this particular violent incident withdrawn from access (and not all the other violent imagery) because they fear it reflects badly on Islam and the official mindset holds that Australians are always on the verge of succumbing to Islamophobia. Which is utter nonsense, but it is why our political leaders can’t speak about the rampant antisemitism that’s now on Australian streets without bracketing it with a near-non-existent Islamophobia.

Islam has to be treated with kid-gloves: first, because Muslim leaders are so quick to make racism accusations (and racism is today’s unforgivable sin), and second because of the growing influence of the Muslim vote in key Labor seats.

It is also why I have not heard one mention of the ‘I’ word from police in connection with the Bishop’s stabbing. Instead, it’s simply “a religiously motivated ideology” If we call it what it is we won’t defeat it.

I am a conservative before I am a libertarian. And by that I mean, I believe in free speech but not a free-for-all. I do believe there are constraints such as some of the depraved content available online that should be removed such as child abuse and violent pornography.

But footage such as Bishop Emmanuel’s attack should not be taken down because it depicts an important news event and these sort of images, all containing “graphic violence” like 9/11 or the assassination of JF Kennedy, or the images out of Holocaust camps, must be understood by all humanity.

In the case of the stabbing of a Christian bishop, it is also imagery about an ideology that Australians should know about, and need to understand given its power to recruit would-be killers as young as 14 years of age, as the charges laid in the wake of the incident have shown.

The Albanese Government has been quick to use the events at this Western Sydney church to renew its bid to censor what you can see and hear via the Misinformation and Disinformation Bill that, if passed into law, will give faceless officials the power to impose massive fines on online platforms (like Facebook etc) who do not remove material that the bureaucrat says must go.

Right now, the Coalition says it can’t support this legislation, but it has got itself into a difficult position of inconsistency because it earlier agreed that the footage of Bishop Emmanuel’s stabbing should come down. And this is what happens when political parties react to issues rather than deal with them based on sound policy principles.

It was only a few months ago, during the Voice referendum debate, that the arguments of the No side were regularly removed from the internet. Indeed, my work on exposing the Uluru Statement as a much longer, more radical list of demands than the one-page poster that the PM tried to pretend it was, upset the highly political ‘fact-checkers’ who ordered it removed. It was only after lawyers for this masthead and Sky News took them on that my factual material was reinstated.

We cannot allow the Albanese Government to get its way in controlling what you can see and read online. And that’s why the removal of the footage regarding Bishop Emmanuel is such an important issue. It is not about cleaning up the internet. It is about censoring it. And as always with the left, it is not where you start, it is where you end up and without free speech in a democracy, the very nature of democracy is under threat.

As criticism of the feckless mob in Canberra intensifies with their stunning ineptitude becoming more pronounced, expect Albo to really push this nonsense barrow of misinformation.

There is post from Trump heaping shit on RFK Jr. One of the things Trump says is RFK Jr views on vaccine are FAKE.

Anyone who thinks Trump will save us from the neo-marxists is in for a rude shock.

There are few possibilities, The globalists can use Trump as controlled opposition or Trump has been misled on the vax.

If you havnt watched Naomi Wolf interview above I suggest you do.

One fact I wasnt aware of is that the vax was manufactured by the chinese for pfizer et al. They built the factories to make the product. As we know China refused the mrna jab, yet they manufactured the vax for big pharma. Clearly they could have just stolen the tech like they steal everything else.

There is simply no other explanation for all the pieces, the fake vids out of China, the rapid spread of the virus globaly. the bivalent vax with wuhan S1 for a strain that no longer circulated, the use of remdesvir and Midazolam to murder the population. S1 has been shown to be cytotoxic, and amyloid producing. Look who has been hardest hit, those with comorbidities, auto immune disorders and the elderly, this is classical eugenics.The rise of MAID, and trans bandwagon. These techno neo-marxists are transhumanists and the current trans push is just a wedge. The coordinated and universal talking points during the outbreak, lockdowns that allowed big business to function but not small business. The drive to vaccinate pregnant women, unheard of in human history. Inflation to knock out even more small businesses and reduce everyone’s std of living. the massive increase in 3rd world migration throughout the entire west. the offer of citizenship for migrants that enter military service. (hink about the purpose of that one) All this was done under the guise of plausible deniability. It’s all just one big picture that has only one interpretation.

We are facing an evil not seen since the national socialists came to power, this time though it is international socialists turn and they are already in power.

Is the Global Cabal a Conspiracy Theory? | The Glenn Beck Podcast | Ep 218

re we witnessing the controlled demolition of America? In this episode of “The Glenn Beck Podcast,” award-winning journalist Alex Newman tells Glenn that the globalist types at the World Economic Forum and the Council on Foreign Relations may be “nice to have a coffee with,” but the one-world government they are promoting won’t be the utopia they think it will be. This isn’t the “Global Cabal” conspiracy theory that’s all over the internet, but the reality is just as terrifying. Alex makes the case that the U.N. and Bill Gates are building “a giant digital gulag for humanity” to assert digital control from the top down using tools like CBDCs and digital IDs to not only monitor what you do but manipulate it. Sweden already has thousands of people “with microchips in their hands.” “I’m not saying this is the mark of the beast,” Glenn says. “But …” From FISA and open borders to the war on food and the booby trap of Christian nationalism, Glenn and Alex agree that the solution to our problems is simple: The federal government needs to follow the Constitution, and Americans have to become “a moral and religious people” again.

From my observation, the people in Australia who suffer from Islamophobia (an irrational fear of Islam) are politicians, senior police, senior bureaucrats and the media. The rest of us of have an understandable caution about Islam, but do not live in perpetual fear of it.

Speaking of black dysfunction the black kunt letitia is just not fuking the US justice system:

New York Attorney General Letitia James has been selected as the tip of the spear to launch the globalists’ war on beef. This week, she filed a ludicrous lawsuit against the world’s largest beef producer, JBS USA.
“This is their opening volley but it won’t be their last,” said Jason Nelson, CEO of Prepper All-Naturals. “They’re weaponizing the climate change hoax to destroy the beef industry, thereby forcing people to choose between petri dish ‘meat,’ tofu burgers, or insect powder to get the protein we need.”
James’ lawsuit claims JBS USA is “greenwashing” by allegedly misleading the public about its environmental impact. She asserts that the company cannot possibly achieve their goal of net-zero by 2040 because they don’t have an appropriate plan in place 16 years before the deadline.
“We are contacting our ranching partners and cattle associations across the country, including New York, to coordinate a response to this and other attacks on real beef,” Nelson said. “We’ve seen what these people will do with lawfare and we need to take actions to fight back.”
As Nelson noted, James isn’t just using this lawsuit to punish a company for ridiculous reasons. She’s also using the lawsuit as a platform from which to normalize beef price hikes and gaslight people into thinking they don’t need all-natural meat.
As her recent statement indicates, they want Americans to choose to accept the alternatives the powers-that-be are promoting. Here’s a segment of her statement, emphasis added:
“As families continue to face the daily impacts of the climate crisis, they are willing to spend more of their hard-earned money on products from brands that are better for the environment. When companies falsely advertise their commitment to sustainability, they are misleading consumers and endangering our planet.”
“This is psychological warfare on top of their lawfare,” said Nelson, a combat-disabled veteran who served in the Middle East. “They’re trying to take away our access to all-natural meat but to do so they need enough people to willingly and often enthusiastically accept the lab-grown alternatives they’re peddling.”

I have mixed feelings. The Jews face existential threats; the aboriginals do not, in fact the opposite. However the notion of Terra Nullius is the issue. It goes to what sort of society existed before Cook arrived. At one end we have the Pascoe BS; on the other a group of disconnected tribes leading a pure natural hunting and gathering existence with a bare minimum of physical accoutrements. In the latter sense Terra Nullius means there were people here but there was no unified culture in the Western sense. From there we get the consequent issues of whether aboriginals have benefitted from Western society and its accoutrements. I wonder whether Peris thinks she has benefitted from Western society.

Where’s the comment box, huh? I’m saying to myself, searching under the last comment. Oh, I forgot, here it is, conveniently up the top.

Anyway, what I wanted to say was about this:

Islamophobia (an irrational fear of Islam) 

(after I’ve battled the new ‘quote’ system)

It’s time we started to talk about phobias from our side of politics too.
CL has mentioned Christophobia – an irrational fear of Christ and Christians.

Can we invent others? I’m putting forward Anglophobia – an irrational fear of white English-speaking people and our culture. And j’accuse the cops doing this on St. George’s day in the UK, and also the refusal to celebrate it in London.

It doesn’t cover the Europeans though. Europhobia works only against the EU, so that won’t do. Westphobia? Irrational fear of the West and its culture. Enlightenmentphobia? A bit long and wordy, but true. Whitephobia? That one might have legs for irrationality. Technophobia? Not specific enough, and exists already for people like me. Coloniophobia? Irrational denigration of colonialism, this would send the current Syd Uni history department into a tail spin.

Anglophobia will do me. There is an awful lot of it around.

Yet there is a ten to fourteen year waiting list for Aussie working-class low income families and single people in need.

Who is making these housing decisions? How many ‘points’ do ‘recent migrants’ receive? A year in a converted Nissen hut and a communal kitchen and ablutions block was good enough in the past for temporary accommodation and then you were on your own, having got a job and saved up some funds.

Now migration has put the pressure of overload on every sort of provision from housing, to roads, to food, to hospitals and schools, and to jobs.

Dammit!
I accidentally posted the following in a nested reply, but my ego demands I post it here also.

A response to Boambee John’s 9:27 a.m. post:
It’s called the pathologising of dissent: Any questioning of the dominant narrative from an ‘outsider’ is labelled a pathology; a mental aberration that renders the dissenter persona non grata in ‘acceptable society’. It defines them as a ‘virus’ to be avoided at any cost, lest you too be infected.
By pathologising such dissenters, you remove the perceived necessity to engage such individuals in debate; instead, you quarantine them as ‘dangerous’ and a threat to social stability.
It’s a brilliant tactic that has worked very effectively. Unfortunately, few of ‘us’ have twigged to it and realised the ineffectiveness of continuing to ‘engage, debate, negotiate.’ We waste so much of our time and other resources because we are stuck in a time period decades ago when polite debate was perceived to have been the norm of political discourse.
Essentially, we are screaming to ourselves in ‘quarantine,’ because our much sharper opponents have succeeded in labeling us (and our views) as dangerous. We can continue screaming to ourselves until our time for the televised executions arrives, OR we can genuinely ask ‘What is and isn’t working right now?’
Ego and hubris are conservatives’ worst characteristics. They anchor us in a time when we were relevant (or thought we were).

I have mixed feelings too. The nub of the matter, as recognised above, is removal of Terra Nullius and its replacement with a total fabrication called Native Title, erroneously based on Melanesian-style Torres Strait exampling. This fabrication has allowed vast swathes of our continent to be claimed by ‘aboriginal’ people, many of whom now have very little aboriginal ancestry. Instead, aborigines should have been given by our High Court recognized ‘settlement and ownership rights’ in Torrens Title to limited and defined areas in already established towns and cities and some rural areas. Those were the rights that were offered in land grants (or sometimes by peppercorn purchase) to emancipated convicts and free settlers at the time of European settlement. This would have given aborigines the advantages already shown to exist by this sort of tenure. Protections of genuine and notable sacred sites could have also been offered by sequestration in perpetuity of surrounding areas, with claims limited to the next fifteen years.

At some time in the future the fantasy of Native Title will have to be revisited. It is separatism of the very worst sort, divisive and subject to major Constitutional damage and undermining of much economic development across the continent by activists.

Twiggy Forrest’s cautionary tale: Flailing green hydrogen project rips a hole in Labor’s plan to turn Australia into a clean energy superpower (28 Apr)

Only a heartless bastard wouldn’t have a chuckle at the reason for the flailing:

Fortescue seeks government help to reduce power prices for stalled 500MW green hydrogen project in Australia

“We’ve made it pretty clear that really the issue we’re dealing with is around the power price and we’re encouraging the Australian government to do all it possibly can to get the power price in Australia down, particularly on the east coast [where Gibson Island is].

“We’re working very closely with the government on Gibson Island. Otherwise, it’s a good project and we’ll let you know once we’ve made a final decision on that one, but we’re working closely on getting the price down of the power.”

Technical Note:encouraging the Australian government to do all it possibly can to get the power price in Australia down” is a renewable industry term for “give us moah OPM, or we’ll have to drown this baby kitten”. FMG was unaccountably left off Bowen’s $2bn Christmas renewables cash splash.

And the flailing is dragging down Genex, the poor bastards who hooked up with Fortescue to supply most of the Gibson Island project’s green electricity.

Genex has now been forked over by the Twigster to the extent that major shareholder, JPower, is stepping in to try to rescue its face investment.

In the end, the conga line of dunces will come to an end and gravity will take over at FMG.

I have just finished reading ‘Commonwealth of Thieves’ by Tom Keneally, published in 2005. It is a non-fiction collation of all that is known from writings and reports about the arrival of the First Fleet in 1788 until the turn of the nineteenth century. Keneally does well dramatizing some of the events and people involved, convicts, authorities, marines and early settlers, whose privations and levels of dying were almost unbelievable.

He also explores Governor Philip’s well-intended relationship with the aborigines, pointing out realistically how the aboriginal response was misinterpreted. They saw the hunting grounds as theirs, not unreasonably, but they had no settlements and no polity beyond the clan elders even though they did have linguistic and ceremonial affiliations with other clans (in this case, in the Sydney basin only) – with whom they constantly fought.
Their numbers were substantially lowered by smallpox and other introduced diseases. Philip offered them the protection of the British Crown, and they slowly accepted this. The Enlightenment ideals of the time offered them care and consideration, but not land title, as they had no concept of it.

As with hunter-gatherers everywhere, they were a society of clans awaiting the introduction of thousands of years of civilised development. That it was British civilisation was their stoke of luck. The only option was to opt in. Some did, surprisingly quickly, and continued to do so, but racial and economic prejudices meant the protection they gained became more and more limited as the new century built its Australian society and identity.

By the mid-20th century, redressing the resultant disadvantage was necessary, and Jewish lawyers were admirably to the fore in recognising this. But not with Mabo. Not with Native Title. Not with trying to resurrect a way of life completely lost, and well said goodbye to, as Nugget Coombes desired so wrong-headedly. Gary Johns now shows how much grief that clinging on to ‘culture’ has caused, and which Torrens Title in towns could have fixed.

There was cannibalism in remote tribes in PNG well into the 20th century. It was ritualistic. Same for New Hebrides (Vanuatu) and elsewhere in the South Pacific.

It was pretty advanced and highly specialised as well as ritualised cannibalism, by the look of things.

The US Military Archives tells us that rather than being shot down, Uncle Bosie was a passenger on a transport plane that suffered engine failure and ditched heavily at sea. A passing barge was on the scene in time to rescue a survivor, but the PNG First Canoe-borne Cannibal Regiment obviously got there first and gobbled up Bosie and the other two crew members.

The US media is running a sympathetic ‘he was just recounting an old family story‘ line. One might have some sympathy for an old scrotum disappearing into the mists of dementia; but you would also have to think this episode is providing other haters of western democracy with a useful insight into the operation of US Presidential administration.

No. it means nobody’s land. Land that doesn’t belong to anyone. The abos certainly didn’t have a concept of land ownership. Therefore the brits had every right to claim it. And quite frankly the abos still have no real concept of land ownership beyond what whitey teaches them and that’s why they invented this traditional custodian bullshit. Native title should be abolished or watered down to a symbolic idea with no legal value.

The economy in Canberra, which is well padded by guaranteed Pube salaries and retirees with generous pensions, is completely disconnected from the real world.

Here in Queanbeyan, right next door, there is a buffer because a lot of tradies and businesses can charge them ‘Canberra prices.’

But anyone not in that loop is doing it hard. The cafes and restaurants have soaring costs – energy, insurance, wages and council rates to name some of them.

When people are struggling, the $5 coffee or dinner at a restaurant are the first to go.

Here at the motel, business has slowed – which means fewer shifts for the housemaids, all of whom rely on that money to keep their families afloat.

There was no ‘Terra Nullius’ in the Sandwich Islands for example. Because there was a settled native society with a chief.

Prime minister Anthony Albanese to return to crime-ridden Alice Springs

  • exclusive

By liam mendes

Anthony Albanese will return to Alice Springs for the first time in over a year following a spate of high-profile public violence, rioting and youth crime resulting in a 20-day-long youth curfew.
Fifteen months after the Prime Minister’s controversial four-hour trip in January last year, Mr Albanese is returning to Alice Springs on Monday following calls by members of the Coalition who claim he has been neglecting the troubled town.
Sources not authorised to speak have told The Australian Mr Albanese will spend a day and a night in the town.
At the end of March a youth curfew was implemented after more than 100 people ­rioted in the town and cornered one of its most popular pubs, which police said at the time they did not have the resources to control.
Hours later, police were called to a town camp where they say about 150 people were “armed in public and engaging in violent conduct”.
Those incidents on March 27 saw parts of Alice Springs in lockdown over what sources claimed was “payback” for the death of a young man who died after a stolen car overturned on March 8.

CCTV revealed by The Australian showed a group attempting to smash the windows of a popular pub, pelting bricks and throwing their bodies at glass doors as workers try to barricade themselves in on the other side, following a ceremony for the 18-year-old who was killed.
The Australian also revealed in February that children as young as 10 are caught behind the wheel of stolen vehicles and ­immediately returned to a ­“responsible adult” – only to continue to reoffend.

The town has also been facing a lawyer and court resourcing crisis, with Aboriginal people accused of serious crimes left without representation and having to fend for themselves in court.
Extensive reporting of the issue in The Australian has revealed claims of corruption, fraud, bullying and drug use within the North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency. Amid these allegations, staff have left the organisation in droves, leaving it chronically short-staffed.
Mr Albanese was in central Australia in October last year, just days before voting for his failed Voice referendum.
Earlier this month Territory Labor unveiled Alice Springs Deputy Mayor Allison Bitar and local Arrernte woman Sheralee Taylor as its candidates for Braitling and Namatjira for the August general election.

By pathologising such dissenters, you remove the perceived necessity to engage such individuals in debate; instead, you quarantine them as ‘dangerous’ and a threat to social stability.

This is why Monty and his ilk are at such pains to put a “-ist” label on everyone here.
It stops him from having to engage with points raised and merely drive by, not needing to sully his glistening smooth unencumbered brain with facts or counterpoints.

It is as obvious and blatant as ‘you are racist, Im not talking with you anymore”.

Re the apparent preference for non-citizens over Aussies in NSW public housing, only three words apply: THEY. DON’T. MATTER. Ordinary Australians, that is.

Unless you have a Temporary Value Label (indigs, migrants, LGBTHOHlljkk, etc, you are NOTHING to the elites and social/political overlords.

We offer nothing to assist them in their goals of sucking the nation dry, therefore we ARE nothing. WE. DON’T. MATTER.

Why continue voting for the slimy feckers then?
What’s the alternative? Value your vote and only give it to a candidate you deem worthy. If there is no such candidate – keep your vote. Get your name crossed off the roll, accept the ballot/s and place them in the boxes as instructed, but keep your vote in your pocket.

‘But that’s a waste!’ you say.
It’s a waste if you give it away to an unworthy candidate, who will ignore your existence the second after your vote has been counted.
Choose self-respect.
Hibernate your vote.

None of the existing political parties have the capacity or willingness to listen to you, THE UNMENTIONABLE ordinary Aussie, or to ‘learn’ from their mistakes.

You cannot learn from your mistakes if you don’t acknowledge you have made them.

As individual we-don’t-matters, we have little power.
Hibernating your vote will not change anything in the short to medium term (see ‘capacity/willingness’ comment above).
But at least you’re not throwing away your time and money ($2.00 per vote? Slightly more?) on a candidate who finds you either invisible or repulsive.

You deserve better.
Disengage.
Hibernate your vote until you feel respected.

These countries mentioned are allegedly moving gold reserves—physical gold—out of the US to elsewhere. Ironically, Nigeria is moving its gold back to the home country, which may suggest that gold is going to find itself on the open market before long. But that aside, if they have physical gold, why would they be concerned with “the status” of the US dollar, as that has zero impact on the value of their gold holdings?

Incidentally, the US dollar index is close to its 30 year highs.
 
Can you try to explain this, as I’m not getting it?

From my observation, the people in Australia who suffer from Islamophobia (an irrational fear of Islam) are politicians, senior police, senior bureaucrats and the media. The rest of us of have an understandable caution about Islam, but do not live in perpetual fear of it.

The last sentence is probably on the mark, at this stage we don’t have to deal directly with the backwash. But I’m not sure that politicians, senior police, and senior bureaucrats are being altogether “irrational” in being fearful of Islam.

The politicians etc are operating in quite another world of wonders:

In a separate statement released earlier this week, the Islamic Council of New South Wales echoed similar sentiments, calling for the NSW government and law enforcement bodies to clarify how they “interpret and implement anti-terror legislation”.

They said the community was concerned they were being unfairly targeted by the laws, saying the raids and arrests made in the past two weeks reinforced the idea that the terrorism laws only applied to Muslims.

“Many in the Muslim community have expressed their concern that if you are an Australian Muslim, even with a formal mental health diagnosis, you will be subjected to a different application of the law compared to other Australians.”

It appears our political leaders and law enforcement authorities interpret and apply the law differently when dealing with Australian Muslims,” they wrote.

While I don’t know how political leaders and law enforcement authorities actually interpret and apply the law to non-Muslim youth who stab religious leaders, I get the sense of possible future behaviours in that community which could lead to bum-twitching, if not outright phobia.

Islamists March in Hamburg for Caliphate in GermanyLast updated 5 minutes ago
On April 27, 2024, hundreds of Islamists from the organization Muslim Interaktiv held a legal demonstration in Hamburg, Germany, calling for the establishment of an Islamic caliphate. The event, which drew attention to the growing presence of Islamist ideologies in Europe, saw participants waving ISIS flags and chanting slogans demanding a caliphate in Germany. This demonstration sparked a range of reactions on social media, with some expressing concerns about the implications for Germany and Europe’s future, while others criticized the protesters’ demands and the German government’s response to the event.

traditional safe haven status of the US dollar and American financial institutions

Or, fearing a repeat of Rooseveldt’s seizure of bullion in a post-war depression?

I was thinking of a seizure by the government of my gold. I have a modest amount in coins. One of them is a 1 ounce Kangaroo, and its marked $100.
I think that means the government – if it took it – would give me one green banknote in exchange. After all isn’t that what they are doing with forced land sales?

It seems the vertical city, I/2 km tall, 170 km long and 200 m. wide in the desert beside the Red Sea has been slightly scaled back. Quite a few Australian consultants are involved. Ah well, I am sure the ski resort will work.
