Greetings from Marrakesh. Penultimate day of my Moroccan holiday. Nice hotel overlooking the Royal Tennis Club of all things.

I’ll do a retrospective when I’m back in Spain and have a chance to cogitate on all I’ve seen and experienced.

I only was grabbed by this statement.

“We have spent the last 12 years trying to teach people about the allergy and to use epi-pens. It’s a volatile allergen and even if Rosie didn’t come into direct contact with a peanut, if somebody was eating one on board she could die.”

I think I am as compassionate as the next guy, probably more so eh m0nty?

I am no medico so I have to take this claim on board, but if true then this young lady, look at her in the article, should never leave a protective bubble.

At any time she could come in close contact with someone eating a peanut and breathing on her, what then?

Is that person going to be charged with manslaughter at least?
I have the feeling the whole thing was a setup.

Hamas and its multitude of followers in Gaza (and no, I don’t subscribe to the daft idea that there are just a few bad eggs wearing Hamas badges plus millions of innocent “civilians”) have been lobbing missiles over the fence at various Israeli villages for years. The MSM has by and large regarded that as “boys will be boys” and to this day have disregarded it as a casus belli.
All those tunnels and all those rockets have not been built by a few bad boys. But in defiantly launching a fresh batch, Hamas has again fulfilled that adage “they never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity”. They have proven Israeli authorities correct in saying it ain’t over until it’s over.

Reposted for excellence, from the old fred. It is worth posting in full…..

Australia threatened by an anti-Jewish hateGray Connolly

I grew up, mostly, in Sydney’s eastern suburbs. Then as now, it was an affluent locality but also a very Jewish one.

An older person paying for groceries or reaching for a shelf might reveal a forearm with fading numbers tattooed in what was once dark ink.

You knew, as a gentile, never to say anything. It was impossible to comprehend what suffering these Holocaust survivors endured.

At the same time, Jewish schools and institutions looked like Christian ones, and Jewish parents picking up their children did not have to convoy, as they do now, to fortified schools and synagogues that resemble forward operating bases in Iraq.

This recent hostility to Jews is abhorrent but also baffling. After all, Jews make up only 0.4 per cent of the population, small enough to be accommodated by the MCG precinct.

Moreover, whenever and wherever you grew up, it was and is impossible to ignore the historically enormous contribution of Jews to Australia and to the nation we have become.

General Sir John Monash, our greatest soldier, was Jewish. Sir Isaac Isaacs, a founding father of our federation and first Australian-born governor-general, was Jewish.

Sidney Myer, founder of the Myer retailing empire, who in the Depression cut his own salary rather than sack any employee, was Jewish. Sir Zelman Cowen, a Rhodes scholar and naval intelligence officer in World War II, and later governor-general, was Jewish.

Down to today, if there has been one group of “lifters” in Australia, who have given so much, so disproportionately, to our country, it’s our Jewish fellow citizens.

We have made mistakes as a country, particularly in our treatment of our Indigenous people.

However, if there was something we as Australians got right, it was a refusal to allow religious prejudices to be mainstreamed.

Yes, we had sectarian tensions. But we also had prohibitions on religious tests for public office, and we had a politics that valued and defended the different faith traditions of our pluralistic Australia.

I emphasise the word “had” as I fear, increasingly, that this Australia is now under grave threat.

It is the sad case in 2024 that all too many in our country, who must know better, have acquiesced for months in the pollution of our discourse, our streets, and even our universities, by what we Australians had mercifully avoided: the cancer of anti-Semitism.

If ever a myth was exploded by recent events, it is that education is a shield against prejudice. Strong leadership and good moral example are not just shields but swords against such monsters but education in itself, absent a moral core, is but a sterile form of indoctrination.

Hence the appalling state of our campuses, where the harassment and intimidation of Jewish students and staff is now rife.

With too few exceptions, the leaders of our major universities are missing in action, or quibbling, or equivocating – trembling vice-chancellors hiding under desks, “waiting on advice”.

Worse, our police, whose sworn duty is to enforce the law without fear or favour, are now terrified of “escalating” situations where Jews are already being menaced or their schools and synagogues terrorised.

If you are from Sydney, you know the police never cowered, especially when ranks were filled by war veterans and rugby league players.

It is unimaginable that an earlier generation of NSW police would ever have allowed anti-Semitic mobs to gather at the Sydney Opera House on October 9 last year, well before a single Israeli soldier had entered Gaza, to incite hate at “the Jews”.

Yet, even as we may wish to assign blame elsewhere, it is we as citizens who are ultimately to blame.

It is we who decide, each day, by our acts and omissions, what sort of country we want to live in.

It is we who demand too little leadership from our alleged “leaders”.
For too long, too many of us have accepted mediocrity, indolence and sclerosis, and now rank and abject cowardice, from Canberra, from Macquarie St, from university chancelleries, and, worst of all, from chiefs of law enforcement.

The result of our society shamefully accepting such lamentable circumstances is the cancerous anti-Semitism we now see.

Rather than watch our world disappear, we all can help it, and we each must help it.

Never Again means Never Again. We owe our Jewish sisters and brothers a solidarity of nothing less.

Gray Connolly is a Sydney barrister and writer

Oh and yesterday, in Sydney’s CBD, there was yet another Jew hating protest aka festival. One every week…who cares what us infidels think…Jew hatred is serious weekly business. Why is this being allowed to happen? Ahh, but don’t you know, these people have special rights and privileges, remember? Getting the bus, I saw lots of hijabs, ISIS beards, and keffiyehs, and all I could think…..

RIP Australia.

German substack commentator eugyppius yesterday:

The Greens really are every inch as crazy as they seem to be.

Climate policies have long been a source of annoyance and exasperation, but they really began to terrify me for the first time with last year’s proposed changes to the Building Energy Act.

The technocratic wing of the Greens, under Economics Minister Robert Habeck, proposed to mandate that all new heating systems installed after 2024 in Germany use no less than 65% renewable energy. In its original form, the law amounted to a de facto mandate to install heat pumps, and it would’ve entailed catastrophic renovation costs for the owners of many older buildings. The law proved so controversial that even some of the establishment press broke ranks to criticise it; in the end, Habeck had to sacrifice his powerful state secretary Patrick Graichen, and the legislation passed in modified but still pretty terrible form, laden with a wealth of complex subsidies and exceptions.

Yesterday, at a town hall event, somebody asked Habeck about the GEG, and he responded by saying that the first and most ruinous draft of the law was a test to see how much people would put up with: 

“Many of you will remember that we went as far as we could go in the buildings sector – at least that’s what I would say for myself – without risking the complete collapse of climate policies. The debate about the Building Energy Act, that is how we will heat in the future, was honestly a test of how far society is prepared to go in terms of climate protection when it becomes a reality. And I went too far. You could see that the reaction was immediately there, so to speak, and it would have been a reaction that would probably have ended up knocking the entire climate protection programme off its feet.”

It’s a rare moment when politicians speak with complete candour; this is why. The attempts to control the behaviour of citizens through tax “nudges”, legislated mandates and the censorship of political speech (Germany has its own problems there) is nothing but creeping totalitarianism.

I am totally opposed to any new ‘hate speech laws’. We already sufficient have laws to cover hate speech. What we lack in this increasingly hideous woke world is the political will to enforce those laws unless, of course, you happen to be a white male who tells a joke or tells the truth about a political or social issue. Just ask Mark Latham.

If new laws are enacted, does anyone seriously believe that such laws would ever be enforced by NSWaffen Police against Muslim hate clerics? Would the NSWaffen Police turn up one morning to Lakemba Mosque to try to arrest a Muslim sheikh or imam for hate speech against Jews?

LOL, if anyone here is so naive as to think this would happen then you are living in la la land.

And pace Gray, anti-Semitism has a deep history in Australia. The Bulletin, the standard bearer of the anti-imperialist, republican Left in the late 19th & early 20th Cs, regularly featured anti-Semitic cartoons and tropes.

It may be that the popularity of Monash with the troops and at home did more to bury this early manifestation of the ancient hatred on our shores than any other factor.

Australia threatened by an anti-Jewish hate – Gray Connolly

Worth mentioning that General Sir Peter Cosgrove has unequivocally condemned the antisemitism as well.

‘Hitler would be proud’ of the rise in antisemitic acts targeting Australia’s Jewish community, warns Peter Cosgrove (Sky News, 26 May)

Former governor-general Sir Peter Cosgrove has delivered a chilling warning to people showing antisemitic behaviour towards Australia’s Jewish community.

His comments come in a new documentary on Sky News Australia, presented by former treasurer Josh Frydenberg, examining the rise of antisemitism across the country following Hamas’ deadly attack on Israel last year on October 7.

Asked by Mr Frydenberg what his message would be to those people carrying out antisemitic acts towards the Jewish community, Mr Cosgrove said “Hitler would be proud”.

“Hitler put in a place the Holocaust that was aimed primarily at Jewish people,” Mr Cosgrove said.

“And in watching what’s happening today in Australia, Hitler would be giving thumbs up to those radical elements who are trying to breach this great pillar of Australia’s national character.”

‘Never Again: The Fight Against Antisemitism’ premieres Tuesday 28 May at 7pm AEST on Sky News Australia. 

I have to say he makes the entire political establishment look like midgets by comparison, especially the have-it-both-ways Labor Party.

It’s a volatile allergen and even if Rosie didn’t come into direct contact with a peanut, if somebody was eating one on board she could die.

Mmm…the allergy is to a protein in the peanut. The protein isn’t air-borne via the odour compounds. A piece of peanut would have to find its way from the eater to Rosie who would have to ingest it. A fairly insignificant risk, I would have thought.

Follow the science!

I’m seeing clear parallels with the pro-Palestinian university activism of the 1970’s. Then, the real issues winding up the clockwork toys were various flavours of socialist revolution, and anti-US imperialism, and ‘sticking it to the Man’. The protestors welcoming the air hijackings as legitimate struggle were the same wunderkind who would be waving unread copies of Mao’s Little Red Book.

Perhaps the final chance to reduce Hamas to a smouldering rubble and what do the elites want?

The Albanese government doubled down on calls denouncing Israel’s ground offensive on Rafah despite the Australian-Jewish community labelling the ruling “a death sentence”.

The International Court of Justice has called on Israel to halt its military offensive inside Rafah in the south of Gaza — a ruling Australia says Israel “must comply” with.

When the Daily Telegraph asked for Prime Minister Anthony Albanese’s position on the ground offensive, he did not offer a direct comment.

Instead a government spokesman said Australia had been clear on its position on a Rafah invasion since it was first proposed months ago.

“Australia has been clear that Israel must comply with the binding orders of the International Court of Justice, including to enable the provision of basic services and humanitarian assistance at scale,” the spokesman said.

“As both the Prime Minister and Foreign Minister have said, there is no equivalence between Israel and Hamas.

“Australia’s focus is on a humanitarian ceasefire, the release of hostages and increased humanitarian access.”

Executive Council of Australian Jewry co-chief executive Peter Wertheim blasted the government’s position and said no democratic nation should call on Israel to abide by the ICJ ruling.

“No democratic country faced with similar circumstances would disempower itself in the face of terrorists, or should call on Israel to do so.”

Mr Wertheim also rejected the fairness of the ruling, calling it “tantamount to a death sentence”.

“For the people of Israel, the ICJ has decreed that they must live under the perpetual shadow of terrorism and genocide,” he said.

“For the people of Israel, the ICJ has decreed that they must live under the perpetual shadow of terrorism and genocide,” he said.

“For the world at large, the ICJ has dealt a devastating blow to international law and the system that was so carefully constructed after World War II to preserve international peace and security, which risks a breakdown in that system and a reversion to international anarchy and bloodshed.”

Greens leader Adam Bandt was also at odds with the Jewish community after he called for a ceasefire in Gaza but stopped short of saying if he supported a two-state solution.

“Our view is that Israelis and Palestinians are both equally entitled to live in peace and security and exercise their rights to self-determination in accordance with international law,” he said on ABC Insiders.

When pressed on whether he supported a two-state solution, Mr Bandt said: “It’s up to Palestinians and Israelis to equally enjoy those rights … if that’s what they choose to self-determine, then that’s what they choose to self-determine.”

Mr Wertheim’s co-chief executive Alex Ryvchin said “Bandt and his colleagues have been crystal clear in calling for the creation of a state of Palestine”.

“They have taken every opportunity to accuse Israel and its leaders of every crime under the sun,” he said.

“Yet Bandt could not express support for a Palestinian state alongside Israel instead of in place of it.

“Bandt has betrayed the values of liberalism, human rights and basic decency that progressive environmental movements once stood for. He now leads the most extreme party in our parliament.”

Despicable turds who seem to forget about what actually was the cause of Israel’s offensive. FMD

Flock of rampant chickens unleashes ‘hell’ and terrorises residents of sleepy English town (26 May)

An “out of control” flock of chickens has started terrorising residents of a sleepy English town.

Approximately 100 feral fowl have descended on Snettisham, a small inland town near the Norfolk coast.

Residents have said the birds strolled in from a nearby wood and have since unleashed “hell”.

Isaac Levido is being lauded by Australians conservatives as he faces the “herculean” task of leading Mr Sunak to a miracle victory over Labour in a six week campaign ahead of the July 4 election.

The former protege of fellow Australian strategist Lynton Crosby, of Crosby Textor, Mr Levido got his introduction to politics from his father — Port Macquarie lawyer Justin Levido who served on the local council.

One morning a husband returned after several hours of fishing and decided to take a nap. Although not familiar with the lake, his wife decided to take the boat out and go for a ride. She motored out a short distance, anchored, and began to read her book.
A short time later, along comes a game warden in his boat. He pulled up alongside the woman and said, “Good morning Ma’am. What are you doing?”
“Reading a book,” she replied, (thinking, “Isn’t that obvious?”)
“You’re in a restricted fishing area,” he informed her.
“I’m sorry officer, but I’m not fishing, I’m reading.”
“Yes, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment. I’ll have to take you in and write you up.”
“If you do that, I’ll have to charge you with sexual assault,” said the woman.
“But I haven’t even touched you,” said the game warden.
“That’s true, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment.”
“Have a nice day ma’am,” he said and he left.

A couple of takeaways for me from Toibin’s book.
I get the impression that accepting EU apron strings in the 70s and 80s brought great economic benefits to Ireland. One old man Toibin spoke to said he received £9300 (pre euro) for home improvements and others marvelled at the opportunity for proper heating, kitchens with electric stoves and washing machines that was paid for by government grants.
As late as the 1940s poor Catholic children as young as twelve were taken off to hiring fairs, to work for six months for Protestant farmers to paid £5 or £6 at the end, one women in her sixties said she’d be sent at age 12, no abuse but they made her eat off a bag on the table, and she worked long and hard, starting with the hand milking at 6 am, another girl had been sent home pregnant with twins, though another old timer claimed some of the hirees had ended up inheriting farms.
Most people wouldn’t talk to Toibin about it, they were ashamed at being reduced to hiring out.
Protestants wouldn’t sell their farms to Catholics, nor the other way round.
There was talk of ‘plantations’ and something else that still rankled with Catholics. Certain people on the right side in 1641 got extraordinary grants of land and natives were driven off.
I don’t know because he didn’t go into detail but that might have been the genesis of the Irish Traveller.
One family I mentioned got twenty seven thousand acres, another the Leslie’s, eighty thousand, and the then incumbent Leslie, interviewed in the book, was scathing of the bungalows popping up in the Irish countryside, gombeen houses with picture windows he called them, and the ones that mimicked Tara were dubbed high gombeen. I suppose he though two roomed thatched cottages should still be good enough
One wealthy family, the Maddens, avoided IRA retribution in the 70s and 80s because it was known they bought their land, in 1732!
The troubles in the 70s were as bad as you could imagine, no membership of Ira, or ruc etc was necessary, you could be murdered for simply being the wrong religion and the IRA blew up anything linked to the RUC or the army, police stations shops pubs, hotels.
There was enormous historical prejudice against Irish Catholics who were mostly poor, uneducated and well, Catholic, and it was clear they were regarding by many ‘British’ as invincibly inferior, a prejudice that no doubt carried through to the colony of Australia.

You also get a sense of why some Irish might, foolish and ahistorically though it is to me, be pro Palestine, by putting the Palestinians in the role of native Irish and the Jews in the role of British occupiers.
Perhaps if they did their homework about islam in general and acknowledged that the Jews are also indigenous to the region and in the main returned to Israel by buying land not confiscating it, they might sing a different tune.
Of course it’s also the same old Marxism at play too.

Whatever the actual situation here, it is certainly true that allergic conditions have exploded as the vax schedule has exploded. There is a plausible causal mechanism for this:

After the switch away from ‘live vaccines’ to dead ones, or subunits, it was necessary to fool the body into thinking the dead material injected was actually a real infection risk (otherwise it wont raise an immunological response to it). This was done by adding ‘adjuvants’ like aluminium. The problem was that the body doesnt know what threat it is being fooled into responding to -so it may equally raise an immunological response to some other allergen in the environment, eg peanut protein, grass pollen etc etc etc.

This doesn’t make sense to me. Gold is up at record levels but the gold mining companies haven’t followed. Or at least the two I checked haven’t.

Haven’t reached new highs.
Is it possible that the buying of gold itself is not broad based and very concentrated by the Chinese etc?

You also get a sense of why some Irish might, foolish and ahistorically though it is to me, be pro Palestine, by putting the Palestinians in the role of native Irish and the Jews in the role of British occupiers.
Perhaps if they did their homework about islam in general and acknowledged that the Jews are also indigenous to the region and in the main returned to Israel by buying land not confiscating it, they might sing a different tune.

Islam has been the world’s most vicious coloniser:

“they’re launching rocket volleys from the north rom areas that were supposedly cleared months earlier maybe the strategy isn’t working”
I don’t believe the Israeli strategy was ever to ‘clear’ any part of Gaza permanently.
Work their way through, destroy terror infrastructure and move on.
They then exited those areas, I dont think they were so stupid as to not think hamas would come back.
Hamas reoccupied Shifa hospital (and got cleaned out again).
Remember the international outcry and insistence that shifa was a purely civilian facility?
And more tears now that the hospital was greatly damaged again.
No blame to hamas for using it as a base of course.
I read that the US strategy in Afghanistan to clear towns then hold them against insurgents was costly and ineffective and Israel was not going to repeat it.
Anyone in Gaza even children are likely sympathetic to hamas, Israelis aren’t seen as liberators.
It’s easy to move around rocket launchers and with about every building a potential hiding place for rockets so no surprise hamas has a stash to sent Israel’s way.
They don’t want peace, they just want to kill Jews.

*Why is the west handing over all their international institutions to muslims? Though it is one way to crash their reputations.

2 reasons: firstly the left has designated islam a victim of the Western colonialism and oppression and so islam is a member of that protected class where the left quislings and useful idiots get to manifest their virtue signalling. It should be noted that islam is an expert at being a victim in its first stages of growth in Western nations.

Secondly the left are gutless; and in their threadbare little hearts they know big bad islam will bash them unless they support it. This is a classic case of feeding the croc so it eats you last.

The left are filth. If the West were not hamstrung by these pus buckets it could beat islam in a day.

Speaking of the pandemic treaty.

After two years of negotiations, the most recent effort by the World Health Organization to agree on a global pandemic treaty has failed.

On Friday, Roland Driece, co-chair of WHO’s negotiating board for the agreement, acknowledged that countries were unable to come up with a draft. WHO had hoped a final draft treaty could be agreed on at its yearly meeting of health ministers starting Monday in Geneva. “We are not where we hoped we would be when we started this process,” he said

Bruce Lehrmann case: Lisa Wilkinson seeking $1.8m from Network Ten
By ellie dudley

  • Legal Affairs Correspondent
  • Updated 9:53AM May 27, 2024, First published at 9:14AM May 27, 2024

Lisa Wilkinson is seeking more than $1.8 million in costs from Network 10 in relation to their defamation case against former Liberal staffer Bruce Lehrmann, a court has heard.
Lawyers for the high profile presenter and the television network have returned to court on Monday morning to determine how costs should be split, after Justice Michael Lee last month found Mr Lehrmann, on the balance of probabilities, raped Brittany Higgins on a couch in Parliament House.
Justice Lee on Monday revealed Wilkinson seeks an indemnity in respect of $1,815,000 inclusive of GST. “Give or take a few cents,” he said.
The long-awaited judgment of the matter brought against Ten and Wilkinson by Mr Lehrmann was handed down last month, finding Ten successfully made out its truth defence and proved, on the balance of probabilities, that Mr Lehrmann raped Ms Higgins in the office of Liberal senator Linda Reynolds.

Tired tyres.

Electric car drivers face astronomical costs to replace tyres (26 May)

Electric car buyers should be aware of the “astronomical” costs required to regularly replace short-lived tyres, owners have warned.

Car lover Jim Bassett managed just 7,500 miles in his brand new Volkswagen ID.3 before being quoted more than £300 to replace the rear rubber.

The 80-year-old stumped up the cash after being told it was common practice for tyres on his rear-wheel model to degrade rapidly due to the weight of the vehicle .

Due to its heavy battery, the £35,000 hatchback weighs around 1,800kg – the same as a Jeep Wrangler 4×4.

Fellow ID.3 owners have taken to online forums to also complain of short tyre life, blaming degradation on the hefty weight and instant torque of the car.

The torque is one of the nice things about EVs, they accelerate like a cat with its tail on fire. But the wear and tear on tyres, and on roads, is bigly. So far EV owners have been avoiding paying for the cost of road maintenance. Skint governments won’t let this situation go on much longer.

“We have spent the last 12 years trying to teach people about the allergy and to use epi-pens. It’s a volatile allergen and even if Rosie didn’t come into direct contact with a peanut, if somebody was eating one on board she could die.”

No.
You’ve spent the last 12 years badgering and haranguing people in schools, restaurants, hotels, planes, wherever, because your daughter has a highly manageable allergy.
It’s not because of the allergy risk.
It’s because you want to exert control over other people and you’ve finally come up against someone who called it out.
I love the way the airline simply said that they couldn’t guarantee the plane would be completely free of any microscopic fragments of peanut, so the safest thing is to shunt them off.

Times Roman is killing the planet.

NPR: Paper books vs. e-readers: What’s better for the climate? – ‘Digital reading seems to have a considerable eco-advantage over print…But batteries require resource-heavy mining’ – Also: ‘Certain fonts can be more climate-friendly’ (26 May)

Publishers are also rethinking book design. It might be a surprise, but certain fonts can be more climate-friendly by using less ink and less paper.

Harper Collins has introduced sustainable fonts that use less ink.

“So far, these subtle, imperceptible tweaks have saved more than 200 million pages across 227 titles since September,” said Harper Collins’ senior director of design Lucy Albanese. NPR could not independently verify these page savings.

I would’ve thought readers could get carbon credits for having large libraries of paper books. After all that carbon is sequestered more effectively than any carbon farming project, since people keep books for their whole lives and libraries are full of century-old books.

Kennedy received 19 votes, which represents about two percent.

The candidate had accepted the nomination for the Libertarian Party and addressed the convention on Friday — despite previously saying he would not run as a Libertarian. The delegate who nominated him was met with loud booing from the rest of the convention.

Mmm…the allergy is to a protein in the peanut. The protein isn’t air-borne via the odour compounds. A piece of peanut would have to find its way from the eater to Rosie who would have to ingest it. A fairly insignificant risk, I would have thought.

Follow the science!

And a risk with the mitigation of epi-pens.
I think this is more about Mummy being Very Important than about allergens.
I know a couple of people who have serious peanut allergies and I have never heard any concern about people nearby eating peanuts, only that the person might ingest fragments.

Oh look pervert apologist, here are some more real Nazis…

The University of Melbourne’s pro-Palestine protesters say “Israel cannot, will not, and should not exist”, just a week after the group proudly claimed victory over the university after they occupied a campus building for over a week. 

The ‘unimelbforpalestine’ Instagram account on Monday shared with its 20,000 followers a post that said “calls need to emphasise that Israel cannot, will not, and should not exist”. 

The account was sharing a post from Palestinian-American blogger Mariam Barghouti, who claimed on social media that “Israel has lost all legitimacy … No more simple calls for the end of bombs, no more calls to ceasefire, the calls need to emphasise that Israel cannot, will not, and should not exist”.

The account chose to share specifically the frame that called for the end of the Jewish state. 

Annihilation and eradication of Jews. Gosh, can someone remind me, when did we hear this before?

In Heaven, Saint Peter is at his desk near the Pearly Gates when a dirty white Ford Transit pickup stops at the entrance. Inside are three travelers from Liverpool, England. He looks at them with distaste and asks “What do you lot want?”

“We’ve just been killed in a road crash and we want to come in.”

Peter replies “We don’t want any of your sort up here.”

“Well this is the Kingdom of Heaven, you don’t refuse anyone if they’ve repented their sins.”

Peter says “Wait here a minute then, I’ve got to go and ask the management.” He goes off to find the Almighty.

Peter finds God sitting on his throne, and tells him what has occurred.

“Go back and tell them all are welcome, let them in.” says God.

“Oh, very well then” says Peter, not very enthusiastically.

Five minutes later, Peter returns.

“They’ve gone.”

“What, the travelers?”

Despite her use of carefully crafted adjectives (“gently” and “politely” and “respectfully”) I doubt this was an innocuous one knuckle “tap tap” on the door.
You’re right. The pilot would be desperately trying to get clearances, run check-lists and not miss his/her timeslot, and would be less than impressed with this bullshit.
Just behind the pilot on the annoyance scale would be the other 146 passengers, dutifully buckled up and ready to go, but being held up by the drama queen.

China. Go fork thyself. Daily Telegraph:

The Chinese government has been caught trying to blatantly bully Australian politicians over the “Taiwan Question,” urging them to adhere to Beijing’s belief that “Taiwan is a province of China”.

The Daily Telegraph has obtained an extraordinary letter sent by an unnamed Chinese government official to 11 MPs, including federal Liberal frontbencher Paul Fletcher, after the politicians attended an event celebrating the inauguration of Taiwan’s new president.

The email, titled: “Concerns Regarding Attendance at the Taiwan-related Event,” was sent to every MP that attended the function in Rhodes last Monday.

The gala dinner was organised to celebrate the inauguration of Lai Ching-te as Taiwan’s president last week.

The galling email sent to 11 MPs said that the Consulate-General “firmly opposes” their attendance at the dinner.

The email outlined China’s position on “the Taiwan Question,” insisting that “Taiwan is a province of China”.

The email criticised MPs for attending the Taiwan inauguration event, suggesting the politicians could be putting Australia’s ties with Beijing at risk.

“The Consulate-General hopes that you will adhere to?the fact that “Taiwan is a province of China” and properly handle Taiwan-related issues with prudence and rein, so as to truly honor (sic) the one-China principle and avoid unnecessary interference or damage to the hard-earned momentum towards improving China-Australia relations,” the email said.?

Chinese government officials appear to have sent the unsolicited correspondence after a photo was published online showing who attended last week’s function. The email was sent from a Gmail email address listed on the Consulate’s website as the contact for its “Political & Media?Affairs” section.

Strategic Analysis Australia Founder and Director Michael Shoebridge said the correspondence was a “deliberate” act which was “hard not to see as intimidatory”.

“This is another example of the Chinese government trying to intervene to affect domestic policy making and decisions in Australia,” he said.

“This is not accidental intimidation, this is a deliberate state act.”

“What Australian MPs should do is adhere to Australia’s one-China policy … We acknowledge that its Beijing’s view that they have sovereignty over Taiwan but we’ve never agreed with that,” he said.

Premier Chris Minns said his MPs would not be “bullied” over what events they attend.

“We’re not going to be in a situation where any Labor MP is going to be bullied or intimidated about going to a function, that’s their job as a member of parliament,” he said.

Opposition foreign spokesman Simon Birmingham said the email was “counter-productive” and “risks undermining the resumption of dialogue and engagement with China,” he said.

State government MP Hugh McDermott, who received the correspondence, said he was “extremely concerned” at the attempted interference.

“The dictates of the CCP has no place in Australian politics,” he said.

Independent MP Rod Roberts also got the email after attending.

“I find it both alarming and disturbing that a foreign power would try and influence what an elected parliamentarian can say and what events I could attend in my own country,” he said.

Opposition Treasury spokesman Damien Tudehope said he was “shocked” to get the email.

“This was a shocking interference to try to prevent an elected MP from engaging in a community event,” he said.

Minns may well say that but what does Handsome Boy think about this disrespect to his Beijing masters?

Interesting angle that should be “further explored:”

Payman was naturalised as an Australian citizen in 2005, although this did not automatically revoke her Afghan citizenship. As Section 44 of the Constitution of Australia requires all candidates to be a citizen of Australia only, she approached the Afghanistan embassy in Australia in October 2021 to renounce her Afghan citizenship. The embassy advised her that they could not finalise the renunciation because it had no contact with the new Taliban government that seized control of the country in August. The Labor Party received legal advice that Payman was nevertheless still eligible to be elected, as she had taken all reasonable steps to renounce her Afghan citizenship, noting that the Afghan Embassy in Australia did not even know whether the various departments and officers who would be tasked with processing her application in Kabul even exist following the takeover of Afghanistan by the Taliban.

Legal advice always comes with strings attached. I wonder how it managed to get around the Australian Constitution?

Laura Tingle’s comments ‘create division’
Staff writers
Opposition Indigenous spokeswoman Jacinta Nampijinpa Price says ABC journalist Laura Tingle’s comments at the Sydney Writers Festival “create division”.
Speaking at Sydney’s Carriageworks, Tingle accused Peter Dutton of encouraging racism towards migrants looking to buy or rent property in Australia.
“We are a racist country, let’s face it. We always have been and it’s very depressing,” she said.
Ms Price rejected Tingle’s comments, claiming she has demonstrated “over and again her bias” while speaking on 2GB today.
“I’m really disappointed in this continued narrative that is being pushed within our country that does not provide any sense of pride for our children,” she said.
“It absolutely creates division , and we had enough of it during the referendum, and supposedly leading journalists like Laura Tingle should know better than to use that rhetoric.”

Senator Price emphasised that journalists shouldn’t allow personal interest or belief to undermine accuracy or fairness, in line with the Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance (MEAA) journalistic code of ethics.
“I think she needs to probably get some help for the way that she feels because that is not a reflection of the country, that is her opinion,” she said.
“Now, Laura Tingle has demonstrated over and again her bias , and I think (ABC chair) Kim Williams needs to explain why having someone so blatantly partisan sitting in the top political commentator position is in fact acceptable.”
Ms Price also said “people like Laura Tingle need to get on with doing their job appropriately instead of pedalling racism”.

Linda Burney was unavailable for comment.

Do they arrive at a mutually agreed amount with Saint Lisa?
Or do they go down the path of this external referee which is binding.
How much of the work that Sue C did is the contested duplicated work?
Channel 10 pays this to Saint Lisa.
Then Channel 10 pursues BL & Saint Lisa pursues BL for the balance of work related to the truth defence (if any).
Considering she’s out the door, 10 won’t care about ill will.

Daytime Sky News continues to run with the libertarian boo-hoos and the meme “Trump’s handling of the Covid emergency”.
As I recall, although many might not, Trump was duped by Fauci and Blinky Birx, and didn’t actually make any of it worse than the left made it.

Libertarians are a pain in the arse: their reaction to Trump at their conference says it all: their philosophy is a set of ideals which is only loosely connected to human psychology and their emotional attachment to those ideals is very similar to leftists attachment to their fuktard ideals and virtues.

This is incorrect for a number of reasons, but the primary one is that it is not ‘a refugee camp’.

Unless, of course, there are people so far ensconced in the goat’s cheese curtain that they believe a ‘refugee camp’ consists of:

Three storey concrete buildings, paid for by someone else;
Free power, paid for by someone else;
Free water supply, paid for by someone else;
Hospitals (also multi purpose, multi storey, and as one would find in any city of a million plus);
Schools (as above);
Its own ambulance system and firefighting capability;
Its own elections;
Heads of state residing in other countries;
Billions of dollars in aid flowing to it annually;
A construction industry, specialising in tunnels; and
Its own military with a clearly defined hierarchy, artillery and infantry divisions, and sophisticated intelligence and logistics systems – all populated by hundreds of thousands of volunteers imbued with the darkest ideology to ever infect this planet.

I mean, and after all, it’s not a dozen tents in the desert.

Rubbish. The captain sashays down the aisle, locates the sinner and has a quiet but firm word with them, including a warning that aggression will not be tolerated.

The passenger then does the walk of shame off the plane while a dozen people faff around trying to work out what happened and get their stories straight. The captain then does a non-apology and allows the humiliated passenger back on the plane.

Giles is a leftie activist lawyer with a history of looking after grubs coming to Australia illegally and this has continued in government with his Direction 99.

Under Direction 99an offender’s links to Australia should be a primary consideration as to whether a visa should be cancelled. The AAT has followed this Direction in the release of illegal criminals who have committed crimes and when released have committed further crimes involved harm and death to citizens.

The tort of Misfeasance in Public Office may apply to Gile’s actions. The elements of this tort are:

  • The defendant must be the holder of a public office.
  • The defendant must have purportedly exercised a power that was an incident of that office.
  • The defendant’s exercise of power must have been invalid or otherwise lacking lawful authority.
  • The exercise of power must have been accompanied by one or other of the following forms of ‘bad faith’:
  • The defendant must have exercised the power knowing that he or she was acting in excess of power AND with the intention to cause harm to the plaintiff (sometimes referred to as ‘targeted malice’).
  • The defendant must have been recklessly indifferent to whether the act was beyond power AND recklessly indifferent to the likelihood of harm being caused to the plaintiff.
  • The exercise of power must have been productive of loss.

The fulfilment of these elements would be based on proven criminals avoiding the consequences of their proven criminality including the criminal system being avoided with consequences to a class of citizen protected by the justice system.

I reckon some of the folks affected by this shit-head’s actions should lawyer up.

A candidate for a customer service position at a Brisbane insurance company says they were left shocked when the job interview opened with a Welcome to Country.

Posting to Reddit, the candidate explained how the hiring manager “took it upon himself to do a Welcome to Country”, labelling the experience as “weird and unnecessary”.

“I wanted to get others’ opinions on this as I thought it was peak Australian corporate culture,” the wrote.

“At the time I didn’t give it a second thought but in retrospect it’s pretty weird and unnecessary.”

One person commented “Do that s**t and I am walking right back out the door”.

“This was for an customer service role within an insurance company. It was at the start of a very small group interview with less than five candidates.

More than 300 people have commented on the post, with many stunned by the use of a Welcome to Country.

I see Cranky’s terf mates let a neo-Nazi speak at their rally at Spring St yesterday. Only fair I suppose, they gave Phillip Clayton Simpson the mic last time too.

Except I can’t find any source which says that Phillip Clayton Simpson was given a ‘mic’ to speak at the ‘terf rally’ on the weekend. I doubt very much he was, and even if he was, so what. However Clayton Simpson certainly did turn up at the rally, he was pictured by an American photojournalist by the name of Alex Zucco standing on the sideline, near the rally’s organiser named Michelle Uriarau, but not in any verbal or physical intimacy with Michelle. And that can happen, you always get unsavoury people turn at at rallies/protests/marches. So what.

Here’s the link.

https://x.com/zucco_alex/status/1794191518858875015

Note how Zucco says that Clayton Simpson is pictured with rally organiser Michelle Uriarau, except they aren’t pictured together. They are pictured in the same lens shot.

But you know what? I think it’s time we exacted the same standards from the left that they apply to us on the right. Back in November 2023,Vice News posted the following tweet…

Neo-Nazis are showing up at pro-Palestine protests in an attempt to push anti-Jewish conspiracy theories and tropes into the mainstream. Here’s what you need to know about them. https://abs-0.twimg.com/emoji/v2/svg/1f9f5.svg1/6

J K Rowling responded…

Hang on. When far-right groups eager for publicity/violence agitate near women’s rallies, that makes all the women sticking up for their rights fascists. However, when Nazis join a protest YOU agree with, they’re opportunists who mustn’t be allowed to besmirch a righteous cause.

I think Rowling’s response, as always, nails it. I don’t think anything more needs to be said.

In the meantime, Monty’s turning into our own Alex Jones. Back in 2016, when Cruz was running for in the Republican primaries, Jones accused Ted Cruz of being the son of a man involved in the Kennedy assassination. Absurd…yes. Jones’ proof? A picture taken of Oswald in early 1963 in New Orleans, and in the picture, Cruz senior was snapped in the same frame as Oswald.

I monitor the ABC quite closely because I want to know what the enemy is thinking. Which is great because it does literally tell you what to think:

Are electric cars better for the environment than fuel-powered cars? Here’s the verdict

Whether you drive an electric car or are considering making the switch, you’ve probably been drawn into a discussion about whether they are really better for the climate.

Electric cars are key to the world reducing emissions, with transport accounting for almost 20 per cent and rising, so you probably haven’t had that debate for the last time.

To save you from your next barbecue encounter, we have turned to the EV Council, which has crunched the numbers for you.

Did as you do a search. For whatever the reason, randomly, the movie The Final Countdown.

Turns out to be free to watch on archive.org. I suppose that a forgotten movie from 1980 might be made available.

Great entertainment! And serious classical SF, it would work very well as a golden age SF short story.

The Final Countdown (1980)

Kirk Douglas has amazing screen presence, he owns every scene he’s in, but the star of the show is CVN-68, a very beautiful lady. And all her wonderful birdies! Interesting performance by Martin Sheen which echoes his effort in Apocalypse Now, a year earlier.

The movie should be watched as a double feature with her sister ship BB-63, in the movie Battleship.
