TE @12:42PM….

Fury has erupted after ancient Tasmanian Aboriginal bones were apparently “dropped off” in brown paper bags at a Hobart reception desk last Friday.
Tasmanian Aboriginal leader Nala Mansell, who previously lashed authorities for their management of recently-discovered remains, said the way those remains were returned has now left her shocked.

Convict remains? Thylacine remains?

Who decided they were Aboriginal bones? Carbon dating?

At least they stopped global warming by using brown paper bags instead of plastic bags.

IDF finally ready to seek out the remaining Hamas scum in Rafah. And all of a sudden Hamas is ready to negotiate the return of the hostages. So predictable.

Now that we have the benefit of time to review the last 6 months of conflict in Gaza, it is not unreasonable to suppose the atrocities of 7 October were specifically designed to invoke the most severe response from Israel. This would be guaranteed to generate outrage amongst all the anti-Semites, supporters of the “downtrodden”, and the generally historical illiterate. It certainly achieved all of that in spades.

Of course, their own casualties amongst the Gazan populace were always expendable. With much of the world shouting “genocide” at Israel, the Hamas scum now have a chance to extract terms of reconstruction, & even territory gains, that would have been unthinkable before the conflict.

“…the Hamas scum now have a chance to extract terms of reconstruction, & even territory gains, that would have been unthinkable before the conflict.”

Israel’s response to any such “terms” should be the starting position of “The Gaza strip, the West Bank and the Temple Mount are no longer autonomous, and are under full Israeli control. These are closed areas, and no-one and nothing may enter or leave without thorough vetting by the IDF. We may be prepared to negotiate these terms. If any agreement is reached, any breech of the agreement in any of these areas may result in the most severe consequences for all these areas for whatever length of time and under whatever terms the Israeli government and the IDF decide is appropriate given the nature of the breech.”
In short: we’ve had enough of you lot lying to us, so if you fuck around, you’ll find out what a real no-holds-barred war looks like, and it ain’t gonna be pretty. No more warnings, no more compromises. Start shit with us, and we’ll send you off to heaven and your 72 white grapes faster than you can say “insh’ Allah!”

Carmel Guerra OAM – Director & Chief Executive Officer

For over 30 years, Carmel Guerra has been a strong advocate for young people of refugee and migrant backgrounds in Victoria.

In 1988, Carmel helped form the Ethnic Youth Issues Network and in 2000 established the Centre for Multicultural Youth Issues (CMYI). These organisations seeded the Centre for Multicultural Youth (CMY) in 2007, Victoria’s first independent organisation to work exclusively with young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds.

Carmel’s journey to improve advocacy and support networks for young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds has placed her at the forefront of service delivery and policy development. With a background in direct youth work, she has used her experience to collaborate in research partnerships and write or contribute to numerous publications, including ‘Ethnic Youth Gangs in Australia: Do they exist?’, and ‘Wealth of all Nations’; the first comprehensive study undertaken into the needs of refugee young people in Australia.

Carmel is recognised for her knowledge on multicultural youth issues and her commentary has been published in major newspapers and journals. She has served on numerous boards and committees and is currently a member of the Youth Parole Board of Victoria, the Migration Council of Australia and the SBS Community Advisory Committee.

Carmel is also the Chairperson of the Multicultural Youth Advocacy Network (MYAN), the national peak body representing multicultural youth issues in Australia.

Carmel was awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia in 2016 for services to multicultural youth in Victoria, the Victorian Premier’s Award for Community Harmony in 2015 and the Centenary Medal for services to young people from migrant and refugee communities in 2005. She was also awarded a Not-for-Profit Fellowship at Harvard Business School in 2016.

In 2022, Carmel was awarded a Deakin Honorary Doctorate for distinguished service to the Australian community, especially to migrant youth, social inclusion and cultural diversity.

Carmel remains a fearless advocate for multicultural young people.

So with that experience (no law enforcement) she was qualified to be offered the job, and she was confident enough to accept.

The Oz is reporting….

Rossmoyne parents push for closure of prayer room in wake of ‘jihadi’ stabbing
Perth authorities were warned a Muslim prayer room at the school of the 16-year-old self-described “jihadi” shot dead by police was being used to spread extremist ideologies.

Parents at the prestigious Rossmoyne Senior High attended by extremist teen James Hollands have called for the school to close its Muslim prayer room amid fears it is being used to try to radicalise vulnerable students.

The parents of a Rossmoyne student wrote to Western Australian education minister Tony Buti and several other elected officials flagging their fears about attempts by other students to radicalise their son just a month before Hollands stabbed a random passerby and was killed by police.

The father of the student is understood to have raised concerns that a group of Muslim converts at the school were using a dedicated prayer room as a meeting place in which to try to recruit more children.

The Australian understands Hollands was among the student cohort at the centre of concerns.

Frustrated by the lack of action from the school and the education department, he then started an online petition calling for the removal of prayer rooms from all state schools in Western Australia.

The petition, addressed to Dr Buti and launched on 29 April, said the presence of prayer rooms in state schools contravened ethical standards and infringes on regulations concerning the separation of religion and state within schools and could also facilitate radicalisation.

“This practice not only undermines the diverse fabric of our society but also violates the fundamental rights of students to receive an education free from religious influence,” the petition said.

“Moreover, the promotion of religious activities within public schools perpetuates societal divisions and contributes to the alienation and marginalisation of certain religious and cultural groups, thereby fostering religious radicalisation among impressionable students.”

The petition has received more than 600 signatures.

One school parents said frustrated mothers and fathers had again called for the school to shut down the room in the wake of Saturday night’s incident, but had been told that the facility would remain.

Dr Buti on Tuesday confirmed that he had received a letter from the parents on April 3, in which they expressed concerns that another Rossmoyne student was attempting to radicalise their child. The boy attempting to recruit their son, Mr Buti said, was named Mohammed.

The Australian has been told that the boy being targeted was in year 8. His parents have since been trying to shift him to another school.

Dr Buti told ABC radio that he had referred the April 3 letter directly to the Department of Education.

He said the letter was not directly concerned with the behaviour of Hollands.
“The issue was about radicalisation. The letter did not express concern about community safety, it was more concerned about their child being radicalised,” Dr Buti said.

Furious parents are understood to have expressed their anger over the school’s handling of Hollands and the broader cohort of students, as well as the school’s commitment to maintaining the prayer room.

Hollands was filmed in 2022 throwing a small homemade explosive device into a toilet block at the school. WA police commissioner Col Blanch on Tuesday morning confirmed that that incident was the catalyst for Hollands to be placed into a de-radicalisation program, under which he was restricted to using a basic phone without internet connectivity.

However, parents from the school have said that Hollands still had access to a laptop and has been seen at school watching “ISIS material” that he carried on a thumb drive.

Some questions….

Why do Muslim students have their own prayer room? I’m sure there are Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, Jewish students, along with students of no religion, at the school. Do they have a separate space? I bet they don’t.

Where are the parents of this young boy?

This is not a question…..just watch the school keep the ‘Muslim prayer room’ open, because we are now a stupid country. We prefer to tolerate the intolerant so that the intolerant can kill us.

For those who would like the war, the fighting in Gaza to stop, perhaps remind the Hamas folks that there are consequences to actions and the Israels certainly understand there are consequences to their actions.

What is it the young folk say these days:

fork around, find out

There will never be peace between Hamas and Israel, let’s accept that and move forward.

It’s like a bad divorce of friends, you have to a pick a side and that’s that – you can’t try to be friends with both sides, it simply doesn’t work. Neither side trusts you and nor should they if you don’t care enough to back one or the other.

Look at the folks around you, anyone who tried that, has neither party as a friend.

Scale it up and it’s the same with Hamas and Israel, I don’t particularly have any issue or reason to like or dislike either one.

If prssured though, will pick a side.

Sunrise over Zaragoza.

Unlike the Spanish, we turn in early – a product of a lifetime of building and early bird school starts.

So…the first rays of light popped through our terrace window and I leapt out of bed to say good morning to the sun. The dawn, streaked grey and apricot, backlit with gold, burnished the towers of the great cathedral. The early bird definitely caught this worm!

A magnificent city – last night we visited the old church, built on a Roman temple, “renovated” by the Moors, recaptured and returned to Christian worship and smothered in the riches of the New World.

Today it’s the big Pilar church and the Palace.

Cassie at 3:46.
A few brief points.
1. The now perforated stabby youth is referred to by the name “Hollands”. I will bet he had an adopted Jihadi name which he preferred to use. Why would media outlets disrespect him by using his “dead name” (to borrow from the trans lexicon)?
2. Authorities were very quick to put it out there that he had “been radicalised online”. Why say this, when there was ample intel that there was a group of raghead nut-jobs operating within the school?
They have no doubt backgrounding journos that it was online indoctrination from overseas, which then becomes a blind alley of enquiry. That is, the string pullers are untraceable and outside Australia’s jurisdiction anyway.
3. As others have pointed out, wherever the ring-leaders reside, why aren’t we deploying the long arms of Julie Imam Grant to shut them down?

Quite so, and her original role, back in 2017, was supposed to entail monitoring online stuff that could/would endanger children and adolescents. But you see, that was her sly Trojan horse, we were fed lies about her role, this ‘eSkank’ is not interested in children becoming radicalised online, no, no, no, she’s only interested in censoring content for ordinary Australians..

Imam Grant is a fraud, but we all knew that. She sees herself as Chief Censor in the new Caliphate.

Ugh, I just had to hang a hat onto a hook next to my front door.

A couple weeks ago I was sprung by neighbour. He smirked: I’d had half a dozen cockies lined up on the fence, where I was giving them bread, plus one that was sitting on the top of my head. Probably not something most people see when looking at a neighbour.

Anyway fast forward to today, head cockie has arrived three times so far and each time has immediately jumped onto my head. That’s with me only on my front porch a couple feet from screen door.

All this would be fun, but those claws do a tad of damage. Hurts! I have scratches! So I’ve been sliding my hand under his talons and lifting. That had gone well the first two times today, he accepted a bit of bread and munched on it while sitting on my hand instead. Although I now have scratches all over my hand too.

Third time he got annoyed when I put my hand under his belly. I did get him up onto hand but he wasn’t happy and wanted to eat my appendage not the bread. Finally got it sorted, but not a good thing to have happening.

Hence the hat. I’ll have to wear it when exiting my front door, as cockie protection.

And it is the only such accounting trial in history to generate such interest.

Last year, a Muslim student at a strict London charter school called “Michaela”, founded and run by Katharine Birbalsingh, took legal action to try and force the school to allow Muslim prayer rituals. The school had always had a policy of no prayer rituals. This fact clearly did not bother the Muslim student or the student’s Muslim parents when they enrolled at the school. Ahhhhhh, but once enrolled and once attending the school, the student not only started complaining about the lack of prayer rituals, the student was also coercing other Muslim students to pray in the classroom and in the playground. There developed a clique of Muslim children and they were also harassing non-Muslim students.

In the face of this Muslim aggression, Katharine Birbalsingh (herself mixed race) stood her ground, remained defiant and said NO to prayer rituals and separate prayer spaces in her school.

The student, empowered by other Muslims and Guardianista leftists, took Michaela School to court over the policy, which the student argued was discriminatory.

The good news is that the bullying student has failed, in March of this year the student lost a High Court challenge against the Michaela School’s ban on prayer rituals.

The non-faith state secondary school previously told the High Court that allowing prayer rituals risked “undermining inclusion” among pupils.

The free school’s founder and head teacher Katharine Birbalsingh said the ruling was a “victory for all schools”.

In an 83-page written judgment dismissing the student’s case, Mr Justice Linden said: “The claimant at the very least impliedly accepted, when she enrolled at the school, that she would be subject to restrictions on her ability to manifest her religion.”

Pity we didn’t have more adults like Birbalsingh, instead we have too many cowards and capitulators.

Great. A “prayer room” in a State school where children are being radicalised by other children. Not a rumour, not prejudice, but reality.

Any Cats know how hard it is to keep SRE lessons at schools? The ones where Mrs Jones from down the street comes in for forty minutes a week and tells the children Bible stories? No dedicated, exclusive space, just a classroom.

Exactly how many of these “prayer rooms” exist in schools? And why are they there at all? And if they are there, exactly which responsible adult supervises them?

As for children being bullied to convert, it will end the usual way. The muslims will continue on their destructive way, and Christians will be silenced. Because reasons.

COGAT: Int’l orgs told us too much aid was sent to northern Gaza (6 May)

The Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) stated Sunday that they had been asked by international organizations to reduce the volume of goods transported to northern Gaza last week as too much was being sent to the area in relation to the population.

“Israel has continuously enhanced its humanitarian efforts to increase aid into Gaza, spearheading initiatives that significantly improve conditions in both northern and southern Gaza while addressing security concerns related to Hamas,” wrote COGAT on X on Sunday.

In other words the food is all there and ready in northern Gaza. The people just have to move from the south to the north to get to it.

I suspect Hamas is preventing that.

How do you know that Ham Arse have not been murdering the hostages?

Are you in touch with Ham Arse? Are you a Ham Arse?

But maybe then, you are just an Arse.

In the finest tradition of mUnter on his worst days – Baba, earlier, and at 11.25:

She moves easily for someone so brutally raped her rectum was torn

Here is an almost perfect example of an armchair theorist with zero idea about the effects of adrenaline and the absolute instinct for survival have on the human body, and the human psyche.

People have been shot through the chest multiple times and still managed to run for 200 metres or more before collapsing (and dying).

People have stood up, on broken femurs, cradling their intestines after dragging themselves out of crashed cars (before dying).

People have punched through windscreens barehanded while hyped up on ice and similar psychotropic substances.

The only thing that will stop this sort of thing – people in their last minutes, or even hours – from relying on the last adrenaline dumps and instincts to survive is a direct and complete severing injury to the brain and/or spinal cord.

The injuries inflicted on that woman would have been extremely painful in normal circumstances. However, they are soft tissue injuries and would have registered zero on that scale at that time.

You flog.

Freed detainee Majid Jamshidi Doukoshkan ‘helped distribute meth across WA’

  • EXCLUSIVE

By paige taylor

  • Indigenous Affairs Correspondent, WA Bureau Chief
  • 5:31PM May 7, 2024

The freed immigration detainee accused of bashing a Perth grandmother during a home invasion was playing a necessary and significant role in distributing “serious” quantities of meth across Western Australia five years after Australia gave him sanctuary as a refugee.
Majid Jamshidi Doukoshkan was among a sustained wave of asylum seekers to reach Christmas Island by boat when the Rudd-Gillard Labor government was in power between 2007 and 2013. Doukoshkan arrived in 2010 but has been flagged for deportation since 2015 when he was charged with serious drug offences. In November last year, he was one of 152 people released from immigration detention facilities by a High Court ruling that detention is unlawful in cases where there is no forseeable prospect of deportation.
A transcript of Doukoshkan’s 2017 sentencing reveals why the government’s prospects of deporting him are slim — he has been recognised as a refuge and therefore cannot be returned to his country of origin.
At Doukoshkan’s 2017 sentencing hearing for drug trafficking offences, the Perth District Court heard that he had been tortured in Iran by authorities who suspected that he and his father were spies. The court heard this was because Doukoshkan’s brothers had migrated to the US, where one worked in IT and one worked for the military.
Born in Kuwait, Doukoshkan had what Judge Gillian Braddock described as a a good education at the International English School in Kuwait. The Kuwait International English School is described online as a private school and one of Kuwait’s best. Judge Braddock said the skills that Doukoshkan brought to his job at a migrant help centre in Perth where also “very useful” in the drug distribution operation.

“It is clear to me that you played a part in the distribution of methamphetamine into the community in Western Australia through friends and others and that you also did the bidding and made yourself useful to people who were in a position to organise the arrival by mail, or by courier, of large quantities, from 300, 350 grams to potentially over a kilogram of pure methamphetamine,” Judge Braddock said.

“There is no proof of Hamas murdering hostages.”

How about proof that they were all returned unharmed? 

Tragically, the text of the ‘ceasefire agreement’ agreed to by Hamas tells a different story.

It seems that Hamas thinks they will be struggling to find 33 hostages to return alive in the hostage/prisoner exchange. But, they cheerily promise to return bodies to make up the shortfall.

Not quite the snuff porn the first poster was apparently after. But not evidence that the pigs of Hamas have treated their hostages like humans.

It seems obvious that the reason Hamas announced it was accepting the Egyptian peace deal was that Israel is about to launch a major new attack on Rafah. Which means it was a gesture, effectively, rather than a step towards an actual ceasefire.

There doesn’t seem to be much hope of peace any time soon, as the aggressor has little to no incentive to stop attacking. Much like in Ukraine.

Key statements by Vladimir Putin at his inauguration speech:

Russia itself and only itself will determine its own fate;

Russia will pass through the difficult, milestone period with dignity and become even stronger, it must be self-sufficient and competitive;

The key priority for Russia is the people’s safeguarding, preservation of age-old values and traditions;

Russia is ready to strengthen good relations with all countries, with the world majority;

Russia will continue to work with partners on the formation of a multipolar world order;

Moscow does not refuse to carry out dialog with the West, is ready for dialog on security and strategic stability, but only on an equal footing;

It is necessary to remember the tragic price of internal turmoil and upheaval, so the political system of the Russian Federation must be stable;

Russia’s state system must be flexible and provide an opportunity to move forward;

It is necessary to ensure reliable continuity in Russia’s development for decades to come.

It is possible to achieve truly great goals only together with the people;

Russian nation is a united and great people, together the people of Russia will overcome obstacles and realize our plans, and win.

Thanks Rosie, for the recommendation to visit Zaragoza, a must see on a Spanish holiday. Something for everyone – magnificent churches, galleries and architecture. A castle. Roman ruins. And little back alleys full of restaurants selling delicious food and wine at the right price.

Few people speak English, but those who have a smattering want to converse to improve. Tell them you’re an Aussie and you’re sweet.

It was like springtime in Orange back home. Very fresh, a nip in the air and a brilliant blue sky. The lions of Aragon, standing dark and stern on the entrance to the bridge stood out starkly in contrast. The great church, with its four spires, crouches on the riverside, ornate, immovable. A short walk away and it’s another, smaller church with a leaning spire. Turn left and a covered market selling luscious tomatoes, pyramids of artichokes, every sort of fish, smallgoods and great joints of meat. And then there were the bibs and bobs, including sheep’s heads sawn in half, pig’s noses and other triggering body parts. A vegan’s nightmare.

Off to San Sebastián tomorrow.

there is another dimension to these calls for an intifada of which both the minister and the vice-chancellors are apparently unaware. This is the call to ‘globalize the Intifada’ by making the Israel-Gaza conflict the flashpoint (in true Trotskyite fashion) for the mobilisation of a global revolutionary movement, led by university students and their external handlers. The primary targets for subversion and insurrection (in accordance with current radical analyses) are ‘settler-colonialist’ societies like the US, Australia, and Israel. 

People here probably already knew this- remember too that the marxist wreckers are very cranky that their attempted coup failed last year.

From The Oz…

A controversial Muslim commentator who told people to “celebrate the victory” of the October 7 terror attack on Israel addressed the University of Sydney’s pro-Palestine encampment during a protest.

British commentator Sami Hamdi appeared at the sandstone university telling the crowd Israel is a “rabid Zionist project that wants to eradicate Palestine”.

Mr Hamdi, currently on an Australian tour, has previously had speaking engagements cancelled by Canadian universities for his comments following Hamas’s October 7 massacre.

Ten days after Hamas killed 1200 Israelis, most of them civilians, Mr Hamdi urged an audience to “celebrate the victory”, while wiping away tears.

“How many of you feel it in your hearts when you got the news that it happened? How many of you felt the euphoria? Allahu Akbar! How many of you felt it?” he said.

Gosh, such was his jubilation and elation at the murder of 1200 Jews that Mr Hamdi ‘cried’. Even the likes of Rudolf Hoss and other German Nazis maintained better composure when they were busily murdering Jews.

Hey Baba and Monty, did you meet up with Mr Hamdi? I’m sure the three of you would get along like a house on fire.

But I digress, I’m rather curious, just how did Hamdi get a visa? Hmm, interesting? Odd priorities emanating from our Department of Home Affairs. Anyone else remember, as I do, how under this same Home Affairs Minister named Clare O’Neil, how she and her department deliberately stalled the visa application of Donald Trump Jnr? In fact, I recall how Ms O’Neil even took to X to crow about the stalling. I also have heard that it took Graham Linehan, creator and writer of Father Ted, months before his visa was approved, again the Home Affairs department stalled his visa. Now you might ask what could possibly be behind the Linehan’s visa application stalling? Ahhhh, well you see, Linehan is gender critical, he doesn’t believe that a man with a dick who puts on a wig and lipstick and calls himself a woman should be able to access women’s spaces and sport.

Oh I get it….

A Muslim man who has a long history of making obscene and derogatory comments about Jews and Zionism = visa approved!

Donald Trump Jnr, a man with no criminal record, a man who is the son of a recent president of the USA = visa stalled (Trump Jnr cancelled his visit)!

Graham Linehan, a man with no criminal record, a man who is critical of this whole trannie pervert movement, a man who believes in biological reality (meaning his knows what a real vagina is) = visa stalled (grudgingly approved after months in limbo)!

Oh and I should not won’t let the eternally stupid effing Liberals off the hook, don’t forget how they banned Tommy Robinson, Gavin McInnes, Milo Yiannopoulos and other far less offensive people from entering this country.

But silly me, Muslim Jew haters are waved through!

As I wrote last night, we are not the lucky country anymore, we are a very stupid country now.

What is the difference between residential & commercial building projects?.. I live alongside the Smithfield industrial estate, the largest all industrial area in OZ, the media is constantly full of stories on residential housing shortages due in a large part to lack of material ..
Yet, the commercial building in this industrial complex is going “gang-busters” not only the actual building of factories but the ongoing clearance & levelling of land .. The estate which once ended around Eastern Creek Raceway is now extending out to Mamre Road, St Mary’s .. 100s of hectares of land being leveled and developed with no, noticeable, shortages of anything (including money) slowing it down ..
Add to that the new airport, which is is now almost a neighbour over at Kemps Creek, another project, seemingly, unaffected by material shortage(s) …….!

So, an self-admitted liar who lies for money:

  • Admits to making money from her giving evidence at the hearing;
  • Tells the court she hates Trump and hopes he goes to jail.

While the presiding judge sits back:

The judge said he agreed Ms Daniels said more at times than she should have, but he blamed the defence for not objecting more vigorously when she was testifying.

“I agree there are some things that would’ve been better left unsaid,” Judge Merchan said, noting the “witness was a little difficult to control”.

Just recently they suggested a higher price when there was no reason. The time for us letting the beachhouse out is almost at an end.

AstraZeneca is removing its Covid vaccine worldwide, months after the pharmaceutical giant admitted that it can cause a rare and dangerous side effect.
The jab, developed by Oxford University, can no longer be used in the European Union after the company voluntarily withdrew its ‘marketing authorisation’, coming into effect today.
Similar applications to withdraw the vaccine will be made in other countries that had previously approved it, including the UK.

Possibly explains my last blood test.

Ten days after Hamas killed 1200 Israelis, most of them civilians, Mr Hamdi urged an audience to “celebrate the victory”, while wiping away tears.

“How many of you feel it in your hearts when you got the news that it happened? How many of you felt the euphoria? Allahu Akbar! How many of you felt it?” he said.

Rita Panahi:

When is a terrorist attack not a terrorist attack? The stabbing of a man in a Bunnings carpark in Perth’s south has all the hallmarks of a terror incident but authorities are reluctant to classify it as such.

The radicalised teen assailant – who was shot dead after threatening police with a large kitchen knife – was clear in stating why he was committing a violent act.

“Brothers please forgive me for any time I have wronged you, I am going on the path of jihad tonight for the sake of Allah,” wrote the 16-year-old Muslim convert.

“I am a soldier of the mujahideen of al-Qaeda and take responsibility for the actions that will … take place. Please don’t forget me and the mujahideen in your duat (afterlife).”

There you have it. The teenager made his intentions and motivations crystal clear and yet authorities, including the WA Police Commissioner Col Blanch, are baulking at calling a spade a spade.

“The motivation immediately prior to the attack is still under investigation,” Blanch said.

Is it because they don’t want to alarm the Australian public or have them ask uncomfortable questions given we had a stabbing allegedly by another radicalised Muslim teenager in Sydney just three weeks ago?

In the aftermath of the alleged terror incident at the Assyrian Christ the Good Shepherd church in Wakeley there were counter-terror raids across a number of Sydney suburbs with seven teenagers arrested.

Of course, the courts will decide if he’s guilty of the crime or not.

Predictably, some in the Muslim community claimed NSW police were too hasty to label the Wakeley attack terror-related.

Even more predictably, we had the usual cries of Islamophobia, as we do every time an incident like this occurs.

Perhaps it was with that in mind that Blanch gave this curious justification for obfuscating when clarity was required.

“You can say it is a terrorist act, I’m saying I don’t need to declare it an incident because I don’t need additional powers,” he said.

The teenager responsible for the Perth attack had been in a deradicalisation program for two years and there are reports he had mental health issues.

But being a terrorist and mentally ill are not mutually exclusive. Indeed, one could argue that every jihadist is mentally ill.

Well you could argue that indeed Ms Panahi.
As for the commish, what the hell is he on about? Is he the male version of Webb?

It’s an operational decision under WA law relating to terrorism and extraordinary powers (other states have their own versions). Declaring the crime a terrorist act grants him extraordinary powers of search & arrest that he’d normally need warrants for.

What he’s saying is he doesn’t believe he needs those special powers atm (whether he’s right or wrong on that is another question).

Rita and the media are free to call it a terrorist act.

Hunter Valley bus crash driver Brett Button reaches plea deal, manslaughter charges to be dropped
@ShannonTonkin

3 min read
May 8, 2024 – 7:59AM.

Hunter Valley bus crash driver Brett Button has reached a plea deal with prosecutors that will see all manslaughter charges against him dropped, it has been reported.
The 59-year-old is due to face Newcastle Local Court on Wednesday where he is expected to enter guilty pleas to multiple charges of dangerous driving occasioning death after weeks of negotiations between his legal team and the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.
In exchange for the pleas, the DPP will withdraw 10 counts of manslaughter against Button, Channel 7 reports.
Families of the 10 victims have told the media they are outraged by the development, while victim support service advocate Howard Brown labelled the decision “gutless”.
The DPP, meanwhile, is remaining tight-lipped about the news, instead warning Channel 7 it may be in breach of the law by reporting the families’ concerns.
Button was transporting 35 wedding guests from a venue in the Hunter Valley when he allegedly lost control of the coach on the night of June 11 last year.
The bus rolled over at a roundabout near Greta, killing 10 people and injuring 25 others.
Button was remanded in custody before being granted strict conditional bail on 89 charges related to the fatal crash.

Not every jihadist is mentally ill.

I’ll go out on a limb and suggest it’s only a minority who are.

I’ll also suggest that dismissing jihadis and Muslims generally as mentally ill doesn’t help us understand their beliefs and actions, which is essential to grasping the problem we face with large Muslim populations in Western countries.

Too many bought the lie that Islam is a religion of peace.

“Mental illness” is just another trope intended to disguise the real nature of Islam.

@newstart_2024

The Trudeau regime has introduced an Orwellian new law called the Online Harms Bill C-63, which will give police the power to retroactively search the Internet for ‘hate speech’ violations and arrest offenders, even if the offence occurred before the law existed.

This new bill is aimed at safeguarding the masses from so-called “hate speech.” Revolver.news reports: The real shocker in this bill is the alarming retroactive aspect. Essentially, whatever you’ve said in the past can now be weaponized against you by today’s draconian standards. Historian Dr. Muriel Blaive has weighed in on this draconian law, labeling it outright “mad.” She points out how it literally spits in the face of all Western legal traditions, especially the one about only being punished if you infringed on a law that was valid at the time of committing a crime.

Paranoia?
I’m beginning to wonder if things like e-passport reader failures at random aren’t just designed to make travel such a pain in the arse that people decide not to do it.
This may have filtered down to roadworks in Queensland. It is one thing to be delayed for 5 minutes upon encountering a set of roadworks but in the last couple of years it seems that the organisation is such that a 10+ kilometer section of highway is divided up into 5 or 6 sections of roadworks with a delay at each. This is especially bad when there is no reasonable alternative route and goes on for months.

Brutal early exit for Australia at Eurovision 2024 (8 May)

Australia has suffered a brutal early exit at Eurovision 2024, with our entry failing to make it past the first semi-final this morning and secure a place in the Grand Final.

Australia’s entry this year is electronic music duo Electric Fields, aka vocalist Zaachariaha Fielding alongside keyboard player and producer Michael Ross.

Their song, One Milkali (One Blood), was an uplifting dance floor anthem sung partly in the Indigenous language Yankunytjatjara – but it wasn’t enough to see them join the ten acts progressing to the Eurovision Grand Final from today’s semi-final. Their performance landed them in the bottom five out of the 15 acts that performed, alongside Iceland, Poland, Moldova and Azerbaijan, who all failed to qualify.

Maybe Monty should gone over there to offer them support, seeing it’s being held in Malmo.

Dumbest news report of the day comes courtesy of News.com.au.

Clean-tech manufacturing could create $215bn revenue and 53k jobs by 2035: new report (8 May)

Building clean-tech manufacturing in Australia could create of up to $215bn in revenue and 53,000 new jobs by 2035, according to a new report by an independent think tank.

Beyond Zero Emissions is calling on Australia to seize the opportunity and harness the nation’s abundant resources to help move the world towards net zero.

It comes as the Albanese government made major investments in clean-tech hubs in Gladstone, Queensland and the NSW Hunter Region over the last month.

BZE chief executive Heidi Lee said Australia already had the skills and key technologies needed to create a zero emissions economy, we just needed to use them.

What a load of codswallop and unicorn flatus! To start with it won’t work, the grid issues are unsolvable. Then next it won’t be economic. Australia cannot manufacture squat using renewables, as the experience of many other countries show. Germany for example. All that will occur is we’ll end up in a deep economic depression with no end in sight while countries like China, Indonesia and India eat our lunch.

I wonder who funds these weird think tanks?

Stormy smacks Trump on his bare arse with a rolled up magazine:

Judge warns prosecutors about ‘degree of detail’ during Stormy Daniels’ salacious testimony as jurors struggle to keep straight faces (msn.com)

The adult film actress was referring to a magazine that Trump’s face was on the cover of and which she rolled up and “swatted him” with, she testified — drawing smirks from several of the jurors.

Stormy went on to describe the writing on the magazine and that Trump rooted her in the missionary position. We therefore know the whore is lying: because she is illiterate and has never had a root in her life in the missionary position.

But seriously this is disgusting. This extorting whore is grist for the mill of the demorat jury and shit judge. In the end Trump will go to jail for being one of the few blokes in the US who hasn’t fuked the bitch.

Ten’s attempt to uncover whether Bruce Lehrmann had secret financial backersSteve ZemekNCA NewsWire
Wed, 8 May 2024 9:11AM

Not Supplied Credit: News Corp Australia

Bruce Lehrmann did not have secret financial backers funding his failed defamation case against Network 10 and Lisa Wilkinson, a court has heard.
The highly-publicised matter returned to the Federal Court on Tuesday morning as Justice Michael Lee works his way through making a decision on the payment of Ten’s and Ms Wilkinson’s legal costs in light of Lehrmann’s bruising loss.
Justice Michael Lee found – on the balance of probabilities – that Lehrmann had raped Brittany Higgins inside Parliament House in March 2019 while they were both working for Senator Linda Reynolds.
Lehrmann sued after claiming he was defamed by Ms Wilkinson’s interview with Ms Higgins on The Project, however Justice Lee upheld the broadcaster’s truth defence.

Justice Lee will now hand down a decision on the payment of Network 10 and Ms Wilkinson’s legal bills – and he is due to hand down his costs judgment on Friday afternoon at 2.15pm.
Justice Lee previously told the court late that there would be a costs order in Ten’s favour.
As part of their efforts to recover their legal costs from Lehrmann, Network 10 was allowed to issue a notice to produce aimed at finding out if the ex-Liberal staffer had financial backers.
